All right, everyone, here's your chance to help me out. I need more names for Attorosi. More importantly, I need names for Giant Intelligent Friendly Talking Roaches (so anything having to do with trash or filth, preferably alliterative, like Filth Finder and Garbage Gatherer.)

So, thanks in advance, go, and all that other good stuff.

Dikiyoba makes no guarantee that your suggestion(s) will be used, but Dikiyoba will do Dikiyoba's best.

Edit: Typo.

I know you're probably getting tired of answering this, but when do you expect the next one to be out?

Also, I suppose I could donate a small amount of sanity to the fluffy turtles, if it is truly needed. The Spiderwebbers need to come up with some form of sanity substitute for situations like these, though. I can already hear the gimmick now.

I can't believe it's not sanity!

:D

Thanks to all those who gave suggestions (and Dikiyoba is still open to more), Dikiyoba has Chapter 17: Smoo Talks done.

Nice going Smoo. Ratting everyone else out just because you didn't want your face chewed off. :)

Wimp. Smoo would probably die of his wounds and then after a stay in Misc. with Tyranicus and Salmon he could be brought back.

We just finished cleaning up the forums and now we're going to have a filthy mess. This looks like a job for the newbies.

Nice one, Andraste.

Also, some more names for the roaches.

Guardian of NatureJustice of RatsAvenger of RatsThings are not looking good for us healers, now that Smoo has (as Andraste so aptly put it) ratted us out. Nor is it looking good for poor Zephyr Tempest. I'm actually feeling sorry for his fictional doppleganger.
EDIT: Except, Randomizer, that Attorosi could heal Smoo just enough that he wouldn't die. He would just get healed, the wounded again in a non-stop cycle until he broke.

What, so Dikiyoba, Zorro, and the other mages don't get any sympathy?

Healers includes you, Dikiyoba. You're right, though. The other mages do deserve sympathy. I was just feeling specifically sorry for Zephyr, because he has already been killed once in this episode.

I didn't register A4. Did I miss GIFTR hanging out with nymphs, a new meaning for the word nymph that has something to do with roaches, or is Dikiyoba giving the story an odd twist?

I'm assuming that GIFTR are just like regular roaches in all aspects except for their size (and thus life span), intelligence, friendliness, and ability to talk. Therefore, their young go through incomplete metamorphosis and are called nymphs. (Search Wikipedia for Nymph (biology) for more information.)

Dikiyoba would link to the article directly, but UBB doesn't like the address. Wikipedia may be your friend, but UBB is not.

Hm... I see a huge horde of crickets and roaches swarming over an open field full of rats. :D

So, the rats have a hit list, and I'm not on it. Excellent.

Of course Nioca is. This officially makes him the most high maintenance ally ever. Still, the usefulness of a priest outweighs all that, what with all the people who want to see me dead.

It's just too bad that I can't cast Return Life yet.

On a side note, it appears my spell roster consists of A4 spells. I hope this won't cause any conflicts. A4's Divine Retribution was a lot different from the previous Avernums' Divine Retribution. Mainly because A4's DR is very similar to Aura of Flames from Geneforge.

I'm waiting to see if you make an alliance with the rats to take out the old order. It would be fun to see how long it would last before you turn on each other.

Nah. It'd be smarter for him to sit it out and wait for both sides to wipe each other out. Then the remains of both sides would be weak, so ET's small faction could take care of them* easily enough.

Am I missing something here?

Also, Tullegolar, while I am aligned with you, if you sided with the rats, I would have no choice but to smite you. Sorry, but that's the way it is.

EDIT 2: Something I just noticed...
quote:
Episode 3, Chapter 12:
Emperor Tullegolar smiled; a genuine smile this time. Having a priest and a powerful scripter on his side would one day be very useful.
What do you call elitenpc then? Creating that was no small task, I assure you!

Sine Attorosi has learned all he can from the sniveling prisoner he now needs only to kill him so that he won't turn into a problem later on.

Wait a minute. That prisoner's me. Still, he should kill me just in case I'm up to something.
