Every where I look, there are signs of it. This entire forum is hiding something sinister. It could be something the Freemasons are up to, or even bigger. All I can say is that it is not hard to imagine a Bondesque scene in which one member of the order meets another, and uses code words to get their identity across. "You wouldn't happen to have any Skribbane?" "No, the fluffy turtles and the GIFTs took it all."

This has something to do with magic, doesn't it? All the games seem to concern it... You can't keep it from the populous forever! You can not keep us quiet! I can't be the only non-conspirator on the boards! I will rally strength!

Of course, not many will believe a person if his signature says he's a nut.

Alright! I can't hide it anymore! There is a conspiracy! It's the pilosus tortoises, quos intentio decipio genus hominum! Suum intentio est utor suum dissimulo rector Drakefyre ut sensim traho nos in suum specialis exercitus ut adficio totus sanitas ex orbis terrarum, vel vel universum!

Not everyone may be a part of the conspiracy, but almost everyone who isn't is part of some other conspiracy. Be it big elaborate ones like cults or us one-man factions with secret agendas. You may in fact be the only non-conspirator. Then again, I can't not say I don't beleive your not part of a conspiracy already.

Some of us are secretly not participating in the conspiracy. When we meet, we check that no-one is looking, and quickly refrain from exchanging subtle signs. So beware. You will never know who the nonconspirators are, until too late.

I apologize. Of course there is no conspiracy. Anyone who is concerned, please avoid delving any deeper into the matter. For those of you who presented the evidence against my foolish accusation, I would like to remind you that we are out of badgers, and will have to substitute with wolverines. Please ensure that the hovercraft is properly filled with eels.

Whew. I have not read that Latin carefully, but I suspect that there may be some, er, errors.

No kidding. Translating it back, it came out as:
quote:

It was originally
quote:
hairy tortoises, whom intend to ensnare the human race! Their intention is to use their disguised leader Drakefyre to slowly pull us into their secret army to drain sanity out of the world, and eventually the universe!
I guess some of that got lost in translation.

Um, Kelandon? May I ask a quick favor? What does my signature say in US English?

The conspiracy is so secretive that not even the members know they are in it. I certainly don't.

You do not know what your own signature says? Scary.

And since I have just decided I will be a drakon, and drakons are cautious, I say don't translate it. It may be something you shall regret, and therefore better left untouched.

I'm don't know what came over me , but I just realized that the chickens have got my auntie! Don't panick (at least that's what it says in large, friendly letters).

Technically, I translated it from English to Latin in the first place. Problem is, online translators tend to be mildly unreliable. Which is why 'hairy tortoises affect whole health out of the world'. :rolleyes:

However, I do know that Veritas means 'truth'.

EDIT: Okay, re-using the online translator, 'Veritas mos paro vos liberum' translates back into 'Truth will set you free'. It also translates into 'Truthfulness custom put you independent', but it essentially means the same thing. Still, I want the opinion of some who actually knows Latin on what that says.

Further evidence of a conspiracy:

'Veritas' spelled backwards is 'Satire...v'.

That's got about as much coincidence as Bill Clinton in his secretary's lingerie.

I know a little Latin, but not all of those words that have appeared in Nioca's signature. So, now that I am a little more educated, I shall perform an inspection:

Veritas: Truth
Mos: Will (not sure, obviously multiple definitions)
Paro: Set (not sure)
Vos: You (possibly related to French "vous", which also means "you")
Liberum: Free (Definitely related to "liberty")

EDIT: Spelling.

Make sure to not confuse your children with books, though. Also, "veritas vos liberabit" means "the truth will set you free". "Vos" means "you (plural)".

EDIT:
And I completely forgot all that talk about the conspiracy. I think it's enough to say we have quite a few polar bears at our disposal. And on Wednesdays, we talk and have muffins. Sometimes we play Musical Chairs.
