    Or maybe not. As you may or may not have seen, I've replaced every partial incidence of the f-word with "Praise the LORD!!!" This effect will not be permanent. However, it did give me an idea.

    In the ToEE forum Dark Elf, Jinxed and I have been talking about soloing the game as a bard. I'm therefore having a competition - get as far as you can solo in ToEE, any class you like, but no followers, and only the one player character. The person who gets the farthest each week (or whatever interval is deemed appropriate) or impresses the most will get to choose a word, and it's replacement, for 24 hours. Nothing vulgar though. Anyone who actually completes the game solo will be made mod for a day (copious amounts of screenshots will be required as proof I guess).

    Oh, did I mention that this has to be done in Iron Man mode? That's kind of important...

    Fuck, I don't have TOEE yet. I think I will get it for Christmas, though, fuck. I would like to fuck and do that fucking shit with ya'll though. Maybe it will fucking last for a while, and I'll join you guys in fucking competing.

    Free at Lass, Free at Lass, FUCK, I'm FREE AT LASS!!



    This fucking shit's kinda funny.

    Imagine what changes you'll be able to make to the forum! Every time 'the' appears you can have 'cucumber party' take over! Okay, I know a bad example when I do one, which is why this is a competition, and you get to choose what happens.

    Get to it people! These words aren't going to change themselves.

    You've already caught yourself up in another thread, Jar :)...

    Hmm...one question, how would you know how far we get? Will we have to like video our game time and send it to you or something? Or is there some kind of special way? I've never started playing Ironman, but can you save in that...cause it sounded like you couldn't.


    Heh, and there was this one dude who modded this proboards forum...everytime someone said "the," it would come out as "teh" and it was just all screwed up, heh....

    Because DE is the only person who's put in any sort of effort so far (and Jinxed can do anything he wants) DE wins it for the first week.

    So, Dark Elf, what do you want changed?

    Just check your private mailbox. It would be so wrong to post something like this in public wouldn't it? :D

    Dark Elf, you suck. The letter following h is a terrific thing to have.

    Damn you, Swede-boy, you can't thwart Sigurd! Sigurd now refers to himself in the third person, as noted in other posts! Sigurd will not have his speech changed by any socialist Scandanavian!

    Who really cares about that "me" thing? I for one think it's pretty cool. It is DE's right after all. If it worries you that much, just use a "|".

    There are a lot of people complaining about this, I got pms. And that is not cool at all.

    If this thing is to continue, we should be more careful of the words we choose.

    Aww, come on. I think it's great. We all sound like the cavemen (and women) we are.

    You know what would be funny, but even more annoying? Subsitute I, me, etc, with some random name, like Jimmy. So this:
    I hate the new word subsitution thing! It pisses me off, and hurt's my head!

    Would become this:
    Jimmy hate the new word subsitution thing! It pisses Jimmy off, and hurt's Jimmy's head!

    Yes, it would be extremly annoying after a little while.

    I'm telling you guys. "|" IS the solution. Use it. Just because it was my idea...

    And when the Secret Word is changed, all your posts with aye, eye, |, and _I_ are going to look moronic.

    I know it doesn't matter, but for what it's worth I'm thoroughly enjoying this game. It's great fun, and I'd hate for it to be called off on account of you humorless spoil-sports who're pestering Jinxed.

    If you were talking to me when you said "humorless spoil-sports" then i must inform you that in one post i expressed that i was all for the "me" thing. I was simply offering a solution of the "humorless spoil-sports".

    The humorless spoil-sports know who they are, and whether you are among their number I care not. Please don't be so defensive though; I can certainly read the thread for myself.

    Haha, being humorless is it's own kind of humor, is it not? I want some more inventive word subsitutions. Like my Jimmy idea. I really do want to see "cucumber party" at some point. I think that was a good idea, Jarinor.

    how 'bout new names for the moderators. Don't take offense, nothing personal.

    Jarinor- that fatass mofo
    Jixed- that arrogant bastard
    Snowmane- that prissy bitch
