Talk about grudging compliments. That's probably the nicest thing anyone has ever said about ET, too.

Anyway, Dikiyoba's story is certainly warming up. The last 3 instalments have been most entertaining.

No, something else was said a while back that was even nicer... also by me. Am I noticing a pattern here?

Also, it appears that three distinct teams are forming inside the Spiderweb Forums.

The Spiderweb Alliance: Most of the members in Spiderweb are under this banner, and the loyalty of Alliance members belong to Drakefyre and Stareye. Their goal is to have peace and prosperity on the boards, and defend it from outside threats. The Alliance so far consists of:
Drakefyre (Leader)Stareye (Leader)AloraelArancaytarDelicious VlishKelandonKhothAndrasteArchmagus MicaelAsh LaelDikiyobaEphesosFatmanGarrisonJewelsJumpin' SalmonKingyLenarMagmaDragoonMarlennyMysterious ManNiemandNikkiRakshasiRandomizerRiibuSilent AssassinSlartuckerSmooStudent of TrinitySynergyThurylTyranicusZephyr TempestZevizZorroThe Legions of Terror: Led by Dintiradan, this team currently consists of only two other members. Their goal is to overthrow and destroy anyone who opposes them, and to make Dintiradan a true evil overlord. What he plans do to after that is currently unknown. The Legions of Terror are made up of:
Dintiradan (Leader)The LurkerWandererThe Golarian League: Recently formed by Emperor Tullegolar, this league also consists of two other members. Tullegolar has made it publicly known that he would like to overthrow the Alliance, but his other ambitions remain a secret to even his own team. Current members in the league are:
Emperor Tullegolar (Leader)NemesisNioca (tentative)There are also a few members who's loyalty remain unknown or in question:
AlecThe Almighty Do-er of StuffEnraged SlithFBMFrozen FeetIcshiLazarusTerror's MartyrPlease inform me if you think there are any errors in this list, or would like to complain about the names of the teams.

Okay, that needs to be fixed. Questions of legitimacy aside, the Richard White cultists need to be included, out of sheer dedication to continuity (or lack thereof).

Ischii would be the leader, though absent.

Alright. The list has been revamped, and now includes the Richard White Cult.

Andraste has also been moved to unknown loyalties.

The Spiderweb Alliance: Most of the members in Spiderweb are under this banner, and the loyalty of Alliance members belong to Drakefyre and Stareye. Their goal is to have peace and prosperity on the boards, and defend it from outside threats. The Alliance so far consists of:

I think Terror's Martyr is a loyalist since they always take him back no matter how many times they ban him. He was the main defender of the Blades of Exile forum during episode 1 mostly because it gave him a chance to design a new deadly scenario and flame without restraint.

Thanks for another opportunity to pontificate upon something I know nothing about.

This is more based on Dikiyoba's (current) story. Jewels is right, though... She has remained rather neutral.

Still, I'm not changing it unless something else comes up.

I'm a nice girl, but if there was a huge threat against, I'd flee.

Don't know how Dikiyoba plans to handle things, but if there's a battle I'd stay for a while if spurred on by the right people. Otherwise, I'd take off and come back way later to see if everything's been fixed already.

So, not really in the alliance. :\

But then, Dikiyoba may want to ignore this and have me be more helpful and courageous.

The Cosa Bianca is really a secret order, not a cult. As such, naturally, there are a lot more people involved than you realize, or even than they realize.

Says the one-man faction. :P

Really, we've got a lot more factions here than those listed. There's the Chthulu Cult, the Cult of Dikiyoba...

You're welcome to join the Cult of Dikiyoba, Ephesos. It won't affect your tree-hugging dirt-loving nature-worship at all, and you demonstrate a near-perfect grasp of one of the main tenets:

Since Dikiyoba said that Chapter 15 was already written, I wonder how long until Dikiyoba posts it.
A truly devoted follower would have put their name in instead of using "I", but that's a good start for a layperson.

Technically, though, Dikiyoba said that Dikiyoba had Chapter 15 mostly written. But Dikiyoba has finished writing it now: Chapter 15: Resting

So this wouldn't be gimmick theft? Alorael doesn't appreciate imitators...

Dikiyoba's latest addition to Dikiyoba's story is great. Arancaytar is well pleased.

But Arancaytar also wonders: If they are in the Avernum Trilogy forum, why do they feel hungry?

Oh, right. They're resting. :P

That pun was painful... very, very painful.

Excellent use of scattered Avernum lore, though... I think the PC with my name that I used in A3 actually wore the Clover Boots for a while. And the recall crystal... perfect.

Except I can't think of where it will take us...

Nice. The Mystic is cast as Meuric the rat. I wonder how he/she feels about that. Also, the Clover Boots definitely explains why Ephesos didn't die. Thank goodness for that... He's the only one I could really learn from, when it comes to being a priest.

I think Drakefyre will love the mess that's been created in the general forums. Homicidal lovers, unguarded prisoners, pencil-catching priests, smitten moderator stalkers, and slith spear wielding maniacs. Wee...

Well, I can think of three possibilities of where it might drop you.

1) The General forum, which is the home of most Spiderwebbers.

2) The Exile Trilogy forum, which is where Spiderweb Software started.

3) If you're really unlucky, or if Dikiyoba is sadistic (which I doubt), Shadow Vale. :P
