It was stretching the board horizontally at 1024x768 resolution, and understandably so at 1000 pixels wide.

Over 800 or so, you're messing with the board's layout and would probably be better off linking rather than using the img tag.

EDIT: Revised estimate after checking some posted images.

FYT.

I think I'm also supposed to insert some sort of witty remark here. But I'm not interested in wasting one on Tullegolar.

All right, no offense, but it's time to take it to the other thread.

I think we had a very, very nice arrangement a while back. You convince me, ET, that it was required.

'Twas no trouble at all; I'm just happy to have another chapter to read. Thanks!

EDIT: And I love the rats' names.

Ecksian doesn't seem to mind torturing bots to get what he wants apparently.

Don't let it happen again.

Well rats, I was expecting something more to happen. It appears we are getting another clue to Ecksian's identity.

Edit - On further reflection this seems to be another red herring.

No problem. Although I admit I was biting my nails all day. ;)

This chapter created a lot more suspense than anything else, really. Still, good work, Diki.

Creating suspense, and then maintaining it and building, as Dikiyoba does particularly well, in my opinion, is far more difficult than writing the moment of climax.

I didn't say that suspense was bad, or easy to create; I simply stated that creating suspense is mostly what was done in this chapter.

Yes, I have to agree, the chapter added much needed background information as well as more suspense. Very good. Please carry on.

Poor Piper Bot.

I like the focus on rats and other made up characters, because while cameos are fun, they are limited by their percieved personnas and can't really become independent characters, unlike the made up protagonists of this chapter.

Be careful with a word, as you would with a sword,
For it too has the power to kill.
However well placed word, unlike a well placed sword,
Can also have the power to heal.
