Loved the spam fight in Shadowvale. It gives them something to do.

I didn't know spam could be lethal. Harmful, yes, but lethal?

Oh well, it was a fun read anyway.

Spam can be lethal for a topic, as well as for the person who spammed so much that the topic ended up dying.

Last few chapters of the story are particularly good.

Looks like the story now includes accurate representation of Avernum laws of nature. (*Makes a note to put some points into Luck after next level-up.*)

It's a place where monsters re-appear (in MMORPGs and perhaps other games with re-spawning monsters). If you aren't sure about original meaning of "spawn", it's reproduction of fish.

For it too has the power to kill.
However well placed word, unlike a well placed sword,
Can also have the power to heal.

Augh.

I'd considered this briefly, but thought it couldn't possibly be something that lame. :rolleyes:

Indulging me probably wasn't the best idea in the world. Now I'll be making all sorts of irrational demands.

Do you have a tentative release date for the next one, Dikiyoba?

Also, an updated list.

Nioca, how can you say you're still 'tenative' about being on my side? After all, I only saved your life. I never even asked for anything in return!

Not yet.

Besides the fact that Zorro is on there twice, Dikiyoba agrees with Emperor Tullegolar about removing the "tenative" status from your name.

Because I don't know where Dikiyoba's taking my fictional character. Though I suppose that you have me over a barrel when it comes to the saving my life thing.

*Heads back to the list to take (tentative) off Nioca's name*

EDIT: For reference, I was replying to Tullegolar's post.

Also, Zorro isn't the only one that's listed twice. Alorael, Rakshasi, and Zorro belong to both the Alliance and the RW cult.

Dikiyoba... You're not going to have a Salmon clone... are you? :eek:

No. But just imagine how many times Tyranicus would have to die if Dikiyoba did use multiple accounts...

Edit: Fixed quote.

I daresay it would be about 3 times the number of times I normally die. :P

Wait, aren't you asking Nioca to take your side in return?

Reading that again, there's something ominous about it. Is there something in the next chapter that solidifies my alliance, or are you just referencing what's already happened?

Both. Neither. Who knows?!

Diki - I expect my first lines upon waking to be as whiney and as derogative as possible. That is all.

Garrison did WHAT?!?

*rereads it*

That's unexpected. Tullegolar really is lucky.

And I can tell you why the snow stopped. It decided to migrate to Michigan. :mad:

Clearly the snow stopped because Geneforge 4 must have just come out. You know what that means. Newbs, precious newbs. And serviles, too. The Geneforge 4 forum would be an excellent place for me to start my new Empire.

I forgot about that, Tullegolar. Now the newbs can come rushing in. That means people who couldn't access the boards before are now able to. Oh...
