Bravo, bravo. *claps* Kudos and +1 to you, as promised. :) (though, off-topic, the original Crysis was far better than the second, in my opinion.) By the way, which would you like me to label your stories with in the second post - Mr Frog's humorous titles (I'm not nearly as good at it, lol) or the monoword titles you gave your chapters? Or just "part 1" "part 2"? I'm actually thinking of renaming everything Mr Frog-style - that was always the plan, really - but I fear causing more problems than I fix. I greatly doubt that I'm funny to even the slightest degree. :P Also, I was worried that it would look rather... messy.

edit: just got back and I'm already cluttering the thread with second post stuff. ::)  Sorry about that.

Do all three if you want. :P Part 13: Requiem: Urist and the Crazy Hypnotist. But I like Mr Frog's titles. Mine were somewhat less descriptive, if a bit more... Thematic?

And this is Dwarf Fortress, and more specifically, Spearbreakers! If you're not CAUSING more problems than you fix while trying to fix something, you simply are not doing it right. :)

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."

The Extractor fires his -Plasma Carbine- at Fischer.
The spinning +plasma bolt+ is deflected by the <<*Adamantine Mailshirt*>>
Fischer lets out a laugh, fell and terrible!
Fischer stabs the Extractor with her +Steel Pike+ in the lower body, tearing the guts through the -Ballistic Body Armor-.
The Extractor looks sick!
The Extractor retches!
The Extractor vomits!

Fischer twists the +Steel Pike+!
Fischer punches the Extractor in the head with her right hand, shattering the skull and tearing the brain through the *Thermal Nightvision Goggles*!
The Extractor has been struck down!

Such a combat log would be hilarious. Made worse when thier armor would be designed to stop crossbow bolts and bullets, not a pike being run through them by a vomit-encrusted nutter with nigh indestrucible armor.

The long neglected drawing, done many moons ago, and forgotten to be uploaded. Dorf!Splint's rendition of Frog's tablet from the few times he's seen it.


From the barbarian studies book, the image of typical barbarian war trophies, here a necklace of goblin and human fingers, and a spawn tooth baked into a clay amulet and decorated in places with some blue gem of an unknown type.
Enjoy. Also this double post as a bump.

I don't know why, but your rendition of Mr Frog's tablet reminds me of something from that old PBS kids show "Cyberspace". I have no idea if that still airs. lol
(edit: nevermind, it looks a lot different, wasn't remembering it correctly)

I'm working on typing up the next journal update for Talvi, and I've gotten the second post nearly completely up-to-date. :) If I missed anything... let me know. Oh, and if anybody wants me to rename the titles for their journal entries, you could PM me with that, too.

Glad to hear man. And that rendition is what I always pictured it looking like, just not colored like that. Dunno why.

More Third Person journey logs WOOO :P

Bukit doesn't have a journal* so this is in third person for a reason.

(im moderately good at writing but after some time it becomes a chore so expect updates when im overseer to be short and scattered)

Bukit could smell the Armokblessed addy from here. Finally a chance to practice his craft in style. No more pig iron... just pure adimentine laughing in the face of demons. and a chance to make a new sword and be somewhat good at swordsmanship, he hoped, He and his small group of migrants kept walking, the miner was bounding, he also smells that blessed stone. Bukit hopes that those... things aren't in great number here, but after reading that mug poster he guesses so. But where else is there another haven? Spearbreakers  is the one last great forts in history. All the others succumbed to the vampire wars, and those armok forsaken things. And now its raining blood yay... just what he needed, he reminds himself to wash him and carnation.**

* He'll get one in spearbreakers

** His sword's name

This is going to take several parts... Also, it didn't make sense that Talvi could possibly be writing journal entries while passed out, or that she would be recovered enough afterwards to, so... this journal is written by someone else...
I'm not completely satisfied with it, and I may change it later, but here's part 1.

From a shoddily-bound journal

edit: Nice story clip, bukitodinos, I'll get a link to it up. :) But really - Spearbreakers, a great fort?  ??? lol

Ah, I see. I was just joking around anyway - as I see it, Spearbreakers is one of those "can't win for losing" things. Definitely could be considered a stronghold, though.

Spearbreakers a stronghold? More like such a confusing mess made such in so short a time a minotaur wouldn't be able to make heads or tails of it.

@Bukit: Always love some more updates. :) Also, your picture link appears broken to me.

@Talvieno: That was awesome. I am very excited. :)
