Reading chapter 4 again, I just realized something. Is Dikiyoba suggesting that something else evil is going on, beside Dinitradon?

--------------------
I tried to think of something witty to put here.

Needless to say, I failed.

-X- begins to cry, cry, cry at his continued exclusion from Episode 3. -X- even chose an element that he has a lot in common with (Mendelevium)! -X-'s already severe depression deepens to the state where -X- will post eight sad-faced graemlins in every post until he makes an appearance. Preferably with lots of black flame and red lightning.

:( :( :( :( :( :( :( :(

At this point, I'm not sure which would be worse. Sad faces are pretty bad, especially eight of them, but ...

HOW DARE YOU TRY TO BRIBE OR THREATEN DIKIYOBA????

:P

That's fine, but are you aware that images won't display in your signature? Trust me, I already tried.

EDIT: You probably won't make that fantastic of an entrance. Even if, with the way you described it, you want to be a villain.

It's Spiderweb... there's always something evil going on. Especially the evil mindcontroller who is making everyone mess up their ability to count and spell names correctly.

Unfortunately, Dikiyoba is immune to sad faces.

Dintradan. No, that's not right... Dinitraedan. No, that isn't it either... I got it: Dintiradan!

-X- doesn't want to be a villain!!! -X- reveres Spiderweb Software! -X- just wants to be an evil hero. Like Lord Grimm.

-X- doesn't presume to bribe or threaten Dikiyoba, but is merely demonstrating his sadness.

-X- knows that graemlins won't show in his signature, but they are still sad, sad, sad.

And if -X- is excluded completely from Episode Three, then he will change his name to "The Tragedy of -X-" and begin to talk in noob-speak. This is not a threat. Merely a statement.

And -X- knows he isn't prominent enough to make a memorable entrance. But he will resort to anything, even something a useless as hope, to stave off the impending bout with depression.

-X- sighs. Off to do some self-pitying and imagine his banning after his exclusion from Episode Three.

-X- is sorry if he has members worried about his mental health. -X- is glad that nobody here knows his home address.

And now, because -X- is currently excluded from Dikiyoba The Great's Episode Three : A New Game. . .

:( :( :( :( :( :( :( :(

Why does everyone have problems with Dintiradan's name? It's rather straightforward, in my opinion. It has a basic Sindarin structure. Granted, Sindarin is a fictional language, but one would think that at least some of the people who join a fantasy RPG forum would be familiar with Tolkien.

Very, very small chance of that happening.

Actually, it looks like UBB went on a rampage and inserted several parenthesis and colons in your signature for no particular reason.

I have no doubt you'll end up in Episode Tree. What I do have doubts about is whether you will enjoy your role in it.

That's something you really should be grateful for, because TM would have a field day with you.

Me knows, me knows. Spent the morning updating the graphics and downloading SmartFTP 2.0, then there's laundry and a 'parent participation' field trip, dishes, grocery shopping, trip to the library, play some BoA, watch some TV... What was I working on? I've gotta finish the file before I upload it. But thanks for letting me know anyway in case it was a mistake.

Edit: There, that should do it. Please no more anti-elements until all others are taken. There's not much more room to put them and figuring out their absolute position takes a lot of time. At least more time then just changing the graphics that are already there. You may need to refresh to view.

Me thinks I'll add a convenient link in this post.

-X-, you're starting to remind me of someone. He came to these boards, got all interested, and became well-known as a quirky but harmless person. Then he became too attached to the boards. He had breakdowns on the boards, incited and returned flames, and got about ten topics locked. He was eventually banned. Then he came back without permission, and were banned again. And again. Etc.

It's better to be a faceless noobie than to be an infamous idiot who is scorned by everyone. Stop what you are doing. You will earn no respect by acting the way you act. You will probably also eventually get into administrational trouble, although it's not my business or inclination to say anything about such things.

Hmmm. . . -X- did take it too far, there. -X- hopes that you know he was just role-playing. -X- does that often, and gets carried away with it. He has a mental catalogue of fake personalities to use. This is part of the basis for his Big Book O' Personality Classification. -X- also wants to know the name of the board-obsessed person.

But, -X- will, indeed, be disappointed if he isn't in Episode 3. Maybe even throw in some flame? Lightning? Anything, please. Even sarcastic laughter from a radio strapped to his back as background music. Maybe even shape-shifting to reflect his portfolio of personalities! -X- is really winging it here.
A vague campfire odor? No . . . ?

And now, because -X- is currently excluded from Dikiyoba The Great's Episode Three : A New Game. . .

His name was Ed, but his final PDN was "&". Look at any topic that he started in General in February or March to see what he was like. It wasn't pretty.

I don't know whether you will appear or not. Please stop asking me, telling me, or implying that you should be in it (especially outside of this thread). It will only annoy people, make it more difficult for me to write, and get you into trouble.

I appreciate the fact that you like the story and want to be in it, but in the end it's not that important. If you really want to be included in a story, write one yourself. Tell a story around how you created your Big Book O' Personality Classification or found a pair of magical socks in your sock drawer or whatever you feel like.

Ed was a fruitcake. That is all.

-X- stop complaining. I've been here a lot longer than you and I'm not in a story either.

Hmmph. Fine. -X- is sorry if he is annoying people here, or trying to muscle in on Dikiyoba's turf, but he will be disappointed. Ah well. The annoying graemlins at the bottom of his posts will stop, he will change his signature, and be very, very apathetic about this topic. There.

Thank you. We'd hate for another episode of that to happen...

Besides, if you appear as a villain, I'll have to smite you. :D

Of course, since I'm a novice, I may not be capable of casting any spells that would be useful to defend myself. :eek:

Don't be silly, Ephesos. You would never smite someone.

Dikiyoba just doesn't think SMITE!!! is quite intimidating enough.

Actually, I'm more of a fan of the spell Control Foes. In fact, that was my priest's main combat spell in the late game of A4.

Hmmm... the first thing I thought was this:
quote:
Ephesos hadn't moved. He stood almost knee-deep in the snow with his eyes closed and snow beginning to pile up on his shoulders and head. He sensed something unusual. It was very faint, but it was there. Now, if he could only figure out what it was.

Suddenly, the full force of the spam's Taint rushed into Ephesos' mind. In desperation, he clutched his copy of Embers of Rebellion. Slowly, the Taint receeded away from his mind.
I probably should start pounding my head against a wall until I come up with an idea for MoS. I can't think of anything, but no one else is doing anything.

Goblins, anyone? And Nioca? One more misspelling and it's Teh Deth Ray for you.

No DikiStats this post, unfortunately. Probably because I've been coding in C all day, will begin coding in MIPS once I'm off the 'Net, and the prospect of coding anything unnecessary today is quite unappealing.

Your death will be slightly more painless if you call me Dinti, so sure. Of course, if you want to have the luxury of a sedative when I take over the board and kill everyone, I suggest you call me 'Supreme Omnipotent Master Whose Superior Intellect And Blindingly Good Looks Inspire Awe In All Those Around'. All capitalized, of course.
