...which must not be confused with |ing, a practice inferior in every way. The colossal failure that was the spike|marmots was regrettable, but ultimately paved the way for our current weapons of choice. We salute their brave souls, however - their sacrifice shall not be in vain!

Actually the R&D wing went through many wild combinations of small mammals, punctuation, and household objects. Initially high hopes for the case@bat were bitterly disappointed, but out of that setback came the crucial decision to focus on pointy objects. The stick^rabbit proved to be well-motivated but under-armed.

We're currently working on a poisondart!mongoose prototype:

The exact pointy object and punctuation combo has yet to be determined.

Note: Do not refer to them plurally as "mongeese." Doing so whips mongooses into an incredible frenzy of indignation, which may result in lost digits.

We already have our heavy forces in place. The <lead pipe~dik-dik> is a truly fearsome beast-monster-critter. Lest they be accused of lack of subtlety and unnecessary expense (you'd be surprised at how much those angles enclosing them cost!), the snorkel?naked mole-rat is due to start rolling out of the assembly vat any day now.

—Alorael, who personally thinks ordinary naked mole-rats are quite bad enough. Combining them with snorkels may not make them more dangerous, technically speaking, but the effect is well worth the effort. Lovecraft would salute them if he weren't languishing unhappily in a universe far removed from this one.

Of course, we're not meant to talk about the Very Heavy At The Top Forces, such as the [<<rocket-propelled grenade*tuatara>>]. But rest assured that if you know anything, a squad of them has already been despatched.

With all of these competing forces, it seems like some sort of tournament to determine which is the best is necessary. I suggest Korfball.

Or we just set up brackets and host a tournament for Ultimate RWG Weapon. Who wants to set it up?

Apparently death touches you not. Back to the past!

Telling him to go back to the past? Ah, the irony.

I'm afraid, Verelor, that the subtle sorceries of White magic have the last laugh on you. When you sought to eliminate so many loyal members of the order, you were simply banished to the far future.

You are only present here now as a sort of portent. Sorry!

Does this mean we've learned how to remember the future?

No. We've remembered how to remember the future, if I remember correctly.

—Alorael, who is having a little trouble recalling the details of yesterday now, although tomorrow is, unfortunately, crystal clear. It wasn't/won't be a very good day.

I'm having trouble remembering whether it was Philip K. Dick or Kurt Vonnegut who was worried about his inability to remember the future. Or was it somebody else entirely?

Hmm, I thought it was me, but perhaps I don't remember the past so well, either. I plan (as opposed to remember) in the future to refer to the problem of remembering the future, so if some distinguished writer used the line first, I should start citing them.

...But then again why attempt it when the 45 MT Russian Nuclear Warhead/Moth is all yiou've ever needed.

Now if you'll excuse me, I'll be going back to smiting the infidels, Whitists withstanding, in the present time no less.

Or, in the original Russian, the Moth Irfucha.
