Nothing wrong with the odd goofy name. Goblinforger could have a story behind it. Orcmaker though.... probably exiled from the kingdom.

Sorry about that Duncan, you asked before but I completely forgot to answer. Your staff has 25 charges. Your Wand has 100.

Jozan? We are just waiting on you. Would love to move it forward this weekend.

Subject: symetry

So far, the only thing we have on the front page with a resemblance of symetry are the buttons and the partner banners. Everything else is all over the place. Shoving them into the corner makes the page more uneven.

Subject: good to hear

Take your time getting back to normal, and don't scare us like that again. You are about 7 hours away from my place and I was already planning the intervention.

Get back into the games when you can. After all, it's not like anyone else is posting to my games (guilt guilt guilt).

We could make up fakes ones to fill the spots. Grugg's Gruesome Garage. Crazy Alacrity's, Olan's Omnibus.

Yes, I am sleep deprived.

Topic: yet another movie thread...
Subject: Vamping out in the Twilight Zone

Last night, I saw the advanced screening of Twilight movie. This was a gift to my daughter (age 12) and god-daughter (age 14) – I had no real interest in the movie and I have not read the books. Discovery of the night - the "who is cuter" conversation can apparently go on for hours and hours, it can even reset itself back to the beginning.

That being said, I would have to say that I enjoyed the movie. It is a romantic story aimed at teenage girls and it does that very well. But it was a good re-telling of the classic tragic love story with some modern twists to it to keep it interesting. Never was I bored or wishing I could leave, it was an overall good film.

I found the cinematography in the film was excellent. As well, the director used slow motion effectively in places and was particularly good at places two scene together in juxtaposition.

If you are in the target market or a fan of the books – go see it. My girls absolutely loved it and were giddy all the way home. According to them, it is pretty faithful to the book and not an “Eragon” style of book to movie. Yes, some scenes are slightly different and the lines are changed but overall it follows the essential parts of the book. If you are a parent looking at having to go for your daughter, relax and enjoy the flick. It isn’t Lost Boys, but it sparkles well in the light.

Topic: Continuing Where We Last Left Off
Subject: William Shatner and Wolverine

Dapple and Char quickly stripped themselves of everything that wasn’t essential and took to the path. They would ride for couple of hours to get themselves close, and then move out on foot to scout out the town. They saw the smoke rising long before they reached the village, and soon the stench of burnt flesh, wood and carrion reached their noses.

It was not yet dusk when they arrived, but the town was in the shadow of the mountain, creating an artificial evening over the village. Dapple and Char could see that the Hevlorn was at the foot of the mountain, the temple was up near the mid point the peak and the ruins of the castle were high above. Sure enough, the town was completely destroyed. Buildings shattered and burnt from within while bodies of the dead were strewed everywhere, many in pieces. It didn’t take long to find the two beings responsible, as one floated in midair next to the other resting on the remains of the tallest chimney in the town. The one who could fly was a big man, dressed in flowing white robes over banded armour. He held an oversized halberd in his right hand that crackle occasionally with electrical energy. He looked like a comely human male, with long white hair and very fair skin. Both his robes and cloak flowed and whipped around as if caught in a wind, but there was no wind moving through the valley at this time.

The other being was very ugly. He resembles a massive human in body, with gigantic bulging muscles at least three times larger than Maximus. His face was long and extended, so that his nose and mouth were almost beak like. It was bald, except for a few long black hairs on its scalp that it grew long and attempted to weave over its head to create an illusion of a full set of hair. The armour he wore as a grey scale, immensely thick and tightly held together. He bore no weapon but the claws in his hands were so large that the two companions could see them from a distance. They were speaking to each other loudly, so that even from the edge of the clearing, Dapple and Char could hear them clearly.

“Come my brother!” the ugly one said in a voice like gravel churning, “Let us not tarry here any longer. There were women in this town that escaped. Let us seek them out so I can charm and seduce them with my manly good looks and sensuous long hair.”

“No Brother.” The white one replied. As he spoke, he paused dramatically and gestured with the halberd flamboyantly, “We must…remain here…for our master…has charged us…with guarding…this entrance. He will be…mightily vexed…if we…leave our…posts.”

“Surely our master would not deny me a chance to soothe the spirits of the lady folk! They do not know what they will be missing.”

“Yes…My brother…Surely it is…a tragic tale…but…we must…remain…here.”

“I bore of duty and orders. I need adventure, danger and beautiful women to woo.”

“Please brother…without your……guide me…and keep…my back…safe, …I will…surely perish.”

OOC: Just need to hear from Char and Dapple. Moving in closer? Attacking? Going back to meet party?

Subject: Get used to diappointment

You have no memory of the past night, none whatsoever. Gonzo. So you can not say whether or not you did these things or not.

However, for each and every one of you to be suffering the same effects - a wise man might think you were drugged.

But if you were drugged, could you have done those things anyway.

You may never know.

I have moved the story along but the meeting of the crew to discuss money and other matters should not be glossed over. This is a good time to share info and see what the big picture is.

Sam still has a message waiting for him.
