I forgot about that. Looks like the fate of poor Zephyr won't be discovered for quite a while.

This is the effect of the program Stats_Killing.exe, Aranbot.

No, no, no. See Zepher isn't really dead. It's just that his heart normally beats so slowly that it wasn't detected by *checks* The Lurker. He will wake up soon from wherever he was stashed and foil *checks spelling* Dintiradan's plans.

Actually, I dropped the useless a little while ago. Besides, Elitenpc is far from useless. However, I think I'll choose Palladium, because it is a very bizarre element, like me. It also applies because my strength is mental, not physical. And also because I could stand to lose a few pounds.

And in case you're interested, you can find the script I mentioned at my site, via the link below.

The table has been updated. :cool:

Allow me to offer a starting contribution for your reviews page, Dikiyoba:

The best thing about Episode 3 is that my role in it is greatly reduced.

I assume you just meant Thuryl.
Actually, that's just the way the pattern matching works. I assume that everything before a colon on a line is a member name. I could compare each pre-colon text with a list of members, but then I'd run into problems like the fact that no one is named 'Noobventurer'. Besides, if I always ignore that specific line, then I ignore the possibility that some member may come along with the PDN 'Thuryl exits. The other four look around. Zorro picks up the stats that are lying next to Arancaytar. WKS and Erika Maroonmark walk to the other end of the forum, away from the carnage.

Hmmmm. . . If -X- has any say in the matter, -X- chooses -X-enon for his element. Or, if that one's taken, -X- chooses Einsteinium because it is one atomic numer short of 100. And -X- is a bit less than sane. OR, if THAT one's taken, -X- chooses Argon because he aggravates people.

Argon was taken by Schrodinger and Xenon was taken by someone else. Einsteinium, however, is available.

I suggest you look around on the interactive table of elements, located here. It will tell you which ones have been taken, and by whom, and you can click on the elements to get a description.

Hm, it's not correct. Khoth's got Gallium. We agreed on it.

I'd quote the chat, but I don't have the file on this computer. And it'd be hard to find too, since I've no idea on what day it was...

Actually, it's not. Enraged Slith has it. I used what is on Episode 2's Appearances page, not Jewel's Periodic Table of Spiderweb. They're very similar, but not quite the same.

Was it even mentioned in a chat? Dikiyoba doesn't remember ever seeing it in a chat.

... a chat between me and Khoth. We just discussed it together in an AIM chat. -_-

Oh! Oh! Dikiyoba! If you put me in, make my element Californium!

1) I am from California
2) I have very few uses :P
3) I don't occur naturally on Earth

That being said, I wonder if I'm gonna be in this one…?

What? What's this? You've been taking liberties with my Periodic Table without notifying me?!! I'm not a mind reader you know. If you put somebody on the table you have to tell me. :P (I know I read the script, but I wasn't paying attention to who had what element then.)

So was FBM Palladium in Episode 2? Because I'd like the table to be acurate and up to date.

Yes, he was.

Unfortunately, Dikiyoba doesn't know if you can get the two to match up. There are some people listed on your Table who didn't appear in the story, and there are probably a few duplicates because of that.

Hmmh. Fine. -X- will be Mendelevium, since, like the founder of the periodic table of elements, Dmitri Mendeleyev, he is the founder of -X-'s Big Book O' Personality Classification. -X- is also a bit too insane, hence the atomic number 101. Like Mendelevium, which was the ninth transuranic element synthesized, -X- joined the boards nine months and a year ago. -X- is named after someone who did something incredibly important, but is rarely recognized for doing that.

So, HA! -X- has wormed his way into this as well! Unless Dikiyoba The Great would like to earn -X-'s eternal hatred for excluding him from Episode Three... -X- is scared now...

So Homeland was mentioned in the story, and I was wondering if anyone knew that there is a Homeland 2.
What a scarry thought.

Is it bad that I'm waiting for the next part more anxiously then GF4? Of course, I have far better chances of being in the next part of Diki's story the I do in GF4.

Why would you want to be in Ms Dikiyoba's tale? I assume you were kidding about wanting to be in G4.

I'll see what I can do then. Nioca, if you would be so kind as to pick an element that is not taken on either table or list, that would help a bunch.

Like ununtrium (113), Nioca is a newbie.

Described as expected to be a soft, silvery highly reactive metal, I see no issues with awarding Nioca with this designation.
