Easy. :)

On this note, I'm going to write up the next 'chapter' of the Urist-Vanya story. :D

Spoiler (click to show/hide)


I realized I didn't write up Hans' side of the final battle there, that will be its own later update. :)
Also, ninja'd SEVEN TIMES.
Hope ya'll like it. A couple parts were... Quite contrived and unrealistic, but meh. :D

Well, we could put two and two together and write a book: "The Shit that Hans and Max Did: You Won't Believe This Shit."

Talvieno and I collaborated on it a good deal, so I would be remiss to take all the credit. :) We both had the same idea, Urist rescuing Vanya, and it just grew from there. I believe the next update will be his. :D
But thank you Splint, I appreciate that. :)

I love this story~ an elf you can actually sympathize with? One who isn't being a tree hugger and making constant annoying short jokes? Thank you for giving me /one/ i could like.

Lol, I give total props to Talvieno for that one. It was quite a joy to be able to write a likable elf interacting with DF dwarves.

To be honest, i've always imagined that the males elves were the stuck up stick-up-their-ass jerks. Females of any species tend to be nicer, which is why in other fictional works, it's mostly the females who chose to integrate into other societies. Maybe they just got sick of being second fiddle to wood? ;) the wink is to make that sound dirty. dB3 EDIT: Just smacked myself with fridge logic: elves will cannabalize their own dead, but will wage war over wodden studs.

New information - The sequel to this mess will have the fighting pick as standard issue next to chain and mugbased weaponry.

Question: you mentioning chains has gotten my "so new i don't know what can't be done" brain wondering: can you make/mod whips out of chains? and include spikes on the tip? Like a long range mini flail.

No, but you can make a weapon like that. The game still requires you to be next to the enemy icon though. Case in point, my Hastae are in between spears and pikes in size, and my fighting picks are based off proper war hammers, that have a piercing spike and a flat bashing head.

I'm really happy to have something to look forward to when I get off work, and something to contribute to. Otherwise, my life is suuuper boring.  ::)

@Xahnel: That would make some amount of sense, but we'd be toeing the line of sexism. :P

@ Splint: Yeeeesss. Picks are nasty.

Actually they're deliberatly OP'd. They are fucking devestating to armored goblins. The spike can pierce just about anything because of it's tiny contact area.

@hans: it's only sexist if i said it insultingly. Every time i read/watch/play fantasy stuffs with elves in it, the guys are jerkier than the girls. Plus i've very rarely heard of a male elf choosing another society over his own. (example: the apebalded guy who was made king of the dwarves) Course, this being DF I gotta go with the theory that this elf is just unique, as i've had female elf diplomats go batguano crazy. ... Also, new crazy ass theory: elves require a male, a female, and a tree to reproduce. Which is why they go to war.

Whoa, that's brilliant, Xahnel.

@Splint: They're like the whip of pointy things.
