The episodes just keep getting better. :) I like the direction in which they are evolving: less one-line cameos and more focus on a few characters, who are getting some distinct personalities. This is why I liked some GIFTR characters from Episode 4: Since they aren't based on Spidwebbers, you have to define them by more than just a name.

PS As for the contriversy about Jeran, it can be summarised in a singe sentence: RPing a guy with a sword is appropriate only at RP clans for MMORPGs or at Renessance Fair, and since this forum is neither, don't stick your sword where it doesn't belong.

For it too has the power to kill.
However well placed word, unlike a well placed sword,
Can also have the power to heal.

Hmm. Dikiyoba rather thought she was comparing you to this fellow:

So Arancaytar is being compared to someone whose parents drowned in a river, gets sent to live with his weird old cousin that everyone tends to think is mad because he keeps telling stories about his adventures, and then disappears at his 111th birthday party leaving him to deal with the guests. Then he gets chased by sniffing horsemen, loses a finger, and almost dies.

Tisk, tisk. No need to ask. Any SW link you could ever wish to find and more* are all conveniently located in one place.

Dikiyoba's sites would be in Other.
Go ahead and bookmark it. Such a time saver, it is.

...

Actually, I was thinking something completely else. Something like.. say, a minor character in a random show who showed up a couple of times and maybe made a tiny difference before being seemingly killed, but whom some fans of the show grew to like fanatically even, making a group dedicated to fan art and stories of this said secondary character, all the while posting slogans about "[Whoever] is not forever gone, he'll be back, you'll see!"

But I suppose it's not very nice to compare someone like Aran to some unnamed minor character. Because obviously he has a name. :P

Lazarus and Nikki sat in the Blades of Avernum Editor Forum. Crumpled pieces of paper were scattered all around them.

"I sure wish Ephesos or Nikki were available to help us," Lazarus said. "We're so close, but I'm all out of ideas."

There are three of me? One with SoT, one with Lazarus, and one Lazarus is going off to find?

Also, so many typos, apparently. I've fixed the reported ones.

And no, Nikki, there are not three of you. The person with Lazarus was supposed to be Niemand. Lazarus went to look for Nemesis or Kelandon. You are still with SoT.

Or you're secretly Agent Smith. :P

I suspect that it was Tullegolar's umbrella, actually.

Also, all this talk of scripting and needing help with scripting and BoA in general, and I'm not even a passing mention?! Come on! I'm the BoA-obsessed designer in priestly clothing! How can you overlook me like that? :P

The question is, what is Nemesis going to think about this?

I'm glad it didn't turn out to be another blunder. That would have been somewhat embarrassing.
