Sure thing, um... 'supremely impotent master whose inferior intellect and blind looks perspire in those around.'

Did I get that right, Dinti? :P

Hmmm... the first thing I thought was this:

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.
That was indeed what I was alluding to.

quote:
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.
Hypothetically speaking, what is the punishment for calling you Din-Din?

Dikiyoba suspects it won't matter much. After Dintiradan's failure in the two previous Episodes and in what is most likely to happen in Episode 3, Dikiyoba's fate is probably already death by a thousand paper cuts.

I wonder if this thread is going to meet the same fate as the October Posting Stats thread... It's getting pretty long...

I have an idea for Dinitradan. Just punch in snakes, put in a number, and then run. The snakes aren't produced instantly, so it give Dintiradan about a five-second head start.

At any rate, I'm curious to see what the next part will be like...

Pfft. This is nothing, and the October Posting Stats was a fluke. Episode 1 is 21 pages long. Episode 2 is 20. The Mountain of Shadows RP was 23 pages of very long posts before it crashed, and TM's undead moniker topic was almost to a thousand posts before it was destroyed.

And Dikiyoba saves this thread to Dikiyoba's computer every now and then, just to be safe.

-X- don't worry about how long it takes to get into Episode 3. I posted for longer than you have and I didn't get mentioned in Episode 1 for several parts. Most of the people that have been included so far are ones that have been around for a long time and are frequent posters.

Dikiyoba - I like what I've seen of the first four chapters. The new format is easier to read than the scripts. I'm hoping that the newbies first introduction to the General Forum isn't the fluffy turtles, but Aloreal compalining about the wind throwing off his aim as he misses.

That reminds me... no fluffy turtles in Episode 3 yet. That's more disconcerting than the snakes...

At least the GIFTS and GIFTR aren't around at the moment. I saw that TM is back in full censored voice (in the Episode). Aloreal's sniper rifle seems to be in good shape in spite of all the fights over it in the last 2 episodes.

Yes, Dikiyoba has been rather slow in introducing the creatures to the story.

I rather liked the script format, and thought it suited the style of eps 1 & 2. For ep 3 I'm waiting to see if, over the course of the story, Dikiyoba is going to make use of the prose format and include a few bits of non-dialogue, non-stage direction.

Oh, I guess that could have sounded like it was a criticism. Not supposed to be at all, just musing over the possibilities. :eek:

Um, -X-... You're not even in the story yet. How would you smite Ephesos?

At any rate, (in the story) you and I may come to blows. We are, according to that quiz, complete opposites when it comes to good and evil.

You are whatever is made of you by the Dikiyoba. Although, I can see you as a depressed underling of the evil overlord.

I'm talking about Dinti Moore.

Nah, -X- has a major independent streak. Depressed, maybe, but I don't think Dikiyoba would cast him as a servant for the Dint-miester.

Of course, I'm not Dikiyoba, so anything could happen.

EDIT: Dikiyoga? Wow, my mind was wandering somewhere else last night. Or my keyboard was poking some fun at me.

You are correct. :P

As for the odds of -X- appearing, well, let's just say that after what Dikiyoba has in mind for Chapter 6, they look rather bad.

It died a horrible UBB death when WKS posted the Karma Sutra in it. I'm honestly not sure if the content of the Karma Sutra eased the passing or not...

I wasn't sure where to put this, but here seemed like a good idea.
According to the Periodic Table, Richard White is element 118. The description says it hasn't been discovered yet, but it recently has. Just FYI.

Meh. It was allegedly discovered back in 1999, but the experiment couldn't be replicated so they retracted it. I'd personally wait a while before calling this one official.

Gaaah. All that swearing is offending me. This is an offense to all that is good, right and decent in the world. You know, we are taught that dirty thoughts are bad. You hint at dirty thoughts, taking our mind to those (unnatural) proclivities. We commint first in our mind, then in our bodies. You are bad. I must go wsh now.

I fear this topic may cause me to post more than I would wish.
