    Manuals disappeared, then warezing became widespread because you got the exact same thing if you downloaded it, not the other way around.

    Another good example of creative packaging/manual writing: American McGee's Alice and the Casebook of Alice's incarceration at Rutledge Asylum. That gave alot of back story to an already gorgeous plot/game.

    Or the manual for Mortal Kombat II (for Genesis). It has neat pictures and stories in it. My mom wouldn't let me play until I finished third grade so I basically used to sit in the elementary school library and memorize those button mashing moves (right out of the manual). She made me go to a therapist for doing that.

    See what happens when you get a hobby? First it's the button combos, next it's the stamp collection...

    I LARP, so I sometimes dress up as an orc and raid the lokal supermarket.

    Nah, just kidding.

    I do, however, play orc alot when at LARPs. You get to be disgustingly rude to people, and they think you're awesome because of it.

    Just remember Wolfsbane, if you ever decide to LARP as an orc in the nude, you're imposing a copyright infringement.

    well...we acutally had an idea similar to that before...
    But our plan was only to go halfnude, but we decided it was too much makeup to do it.

    Don't tell me you gave up because it was too hard! Think of all the porn that never would be if the receiving party gave up due to hardness.

    Hey, c'mon. It's not like people could identify you what with the makeup and all.

    You're talking about stripping down to your underpants and painting yourself green. Add a few boners and a willing female participant (or male...or sheep), and you've got orc porn. What's better is that you could videotape it and call it a LARP of the conception of one of your characters in D&D.

    You sure could.
    You just have to remember that drows are really freaky, so you might need some s&m gear to complete the illusion.

    Of course, mating with the fine example above would not create any halfbreeds, but then again I need pureblood progeny to pick on my half drow.

    Hehe, thank you, I feel like a copycat now (well, admittedly the idea of the Victorian frame was mine :p ). Anyway, I happened to stumble upon a free photoshop program called GIMP yesterday and the avatar is the result from my fiddling with it.

    http://www.gimp.org/downloads/

    And it seems that someone has resized it for me! That's great... I'm not quite in the know of how to resize stuff without destroying the quality yet.
