* btw, I do know the difference. Strop, however, seems to have forgotten


What's that? An edit by Cenere? Unless Strop speaks to himself, or I write through my subconscious, or my memory is so bad, I don't use btw and I didn't write that.

Ohhhhhh, I like my part... So long, and fun to write... And I like the way Strop drew me figurrrr... Thanx!
"Huh? Wuzzat? Who goes there? You young'ins spamming on my lawn again!?

Ryan has a lawn? I am so jealous...
"I didn't say that." Strop shuffled the files off the table, replacing it with another folder. "Just that your path in the tournament will differ. There are things that require your expertise."

"Such as?"

"Your skills as an archivist." Strop was fairly sure that he was breaking a record for the amount of time Kingryan had ever stayed alert, so he was keen to wrap it up as soon as he could. "Read through this folder. It will tell you all you need to know." Strop rose to leave.

Kingryan opened the folder, and adjusted his glasses as he stared at the image on the front.


OMG! WOM will be integrated into AG, Ryan will be another beta dude, Ryan is getting insider-info, the mods do know more about 3.0 than they let on...

Aaaaaarghhhhh...(Head explodes)

This sounds like fun.

Strop is referring to his in-character self is all.

I can't wait for the next round to start... Better get to work on repairing my portacopter first, though... TT

Is the Horseman supposed to be Stallion Man or Ponyboy?


A good question. I didn't know which would have been more appropriate to refer to, so I went with something ambiguous lol. Probably Stallion Man, given the exact reference I was making.

What's that? An edit by Cenere? Unless Strop speaks to himself, or I write through my subconscious, or my memory is so bad, I don't use btw and I didn't write that.


Poison's reply is correct. I try not to refer to my real self in the third person, so as far as the WoM goes, when I say 'Strop' it will almost certainly be a reference to the character.

I am now prepping the round release. I hope you have all been thinking carefully about the feedback I have left you IC!

MacBase. Didn't I change it to MacBase in the official entry? Yes, I have email evidence. NOW WHOSE CAST LIST IS UP TO DATE! Although you did say there would be some confusion as to female names... and I think McLiquid sounds better. But still, it's MacBase.

Anyway, the feedback is hilarious. I loved Leon's especially (of course, that's to be expected), but many of them were laugh-out-loud funny. KingRyan's is interesting. I'm with Ulimitedpower as to its meaning, mostly.

Right you are. I was relying on the thread archives itself and was wondering why we didn't make it "McAlkaline" or something, but yeah. Cast list updated.

Also, I'm not going to comment on the exact nature of my feedback to KR except to say that I can't predict any changes that will happen to AG itself nor who is to be involved in such developments.

How many months had it been since the beginning of it all? One fine Spring morning, the paper rains came, heralding an era of opportunity, of competition, of glory and accolades. Who would have known the chaos and destruction it would bring? After all the...


That's right, I'm writing this as I post.

There's a reason (or two) why I selected McLiquid in the first place. Specifically, Lia and Leon (the characters) aren't really opposites. Lia is like Leon, BUT (whatever), while Acid and Base are more contrary. Mac I preferred because it was both kind of opposite and similar to Mc, giving me the best of both worlds. The Mac was ideal, but the Base/Liquid part wasn't perfect. I eventually decided that MacBase was funniest and easiest to understand, even if it wasn't absolutely fantastic.

..yep, totally that and not at all a reference to Guns of the Patriots, I swear! Seriously though, Metal Gear references are just icing on the cake. The meaning cake. Because it has, like, meaning and stuff.

Also, I'm not going to comment on the exact nature of my feedback to KR except to say that I can't predict any changes that will happen to AG itself nor who is to be involved in such developments.
No need to ruin it for the rest of us! Sure, you mods know what you know, but us users get a chance to live the Holmesian fantasy! :P KR IN THE BETA WITH THE CANDLESTICK!

The next morning, Kingryan wrote a note for himself to ask Strop if the medication he was taking was causing halucinations...

I laughed when I saw that.

'OHHHHH, a funny entrance that's locked... Wat do I do???'

Yeah, the cast looks like it needs an update: Like add the cameo roles. How about you also put a * next to characters who have appeared recently, or will participate this round?

Uh, must do more research... Archives... Zzzzzzz...
