IDEAS:


Score: if you can't remove your weapon to change it out for another, then Tarzan (or anyone else for that matter)
shouldn't disarm you in a fight. Thanks.

Rhyme: the quiet room filters out all the public channels like chat, shout, auction, etc

Rhyme: if you bamf a mob, all of their gold and equipment falls to the ground

Replies to last Newsletter:

From Anakin:

Avio: corpses should come up on scan. if you can see mobs around you, you should be able to see a dead body on the floor.

>>I believe that's one of the very few uses of birdseye. If they let you see corpses with scan, birdseye would be one more less meaningful.

Criterion: a special skill for demons... we can walk the shadow paths... these are special hallways with doors
that let out at various points. only way to access these hallways is from special rooms. doors aren't labeled.

>>I believe it's called revenant consecration.

From Dove, some humor:

How Many Dogs Does It Take to Change A Light Bulb?

1. Golden Retriever:
The sun is shining, the day is young, we've got our whole lives ahead of us, and you're inside worrying about a stupid burned out bulb?

2. Border Collie:
Just one. And then I'll replace any wiring that's not up to code.

3. Dachshund:
You know I can't reach that stupid lamp!

4. Rottweiler:
Make me.

5. Boxer:
Who cares? I can still play with my squeaky toys in the dark.

6. Lab:
Oh, me, me!!!!! Pleeeeeeeeeze let me change the light bulb! Can I? Can I? Huh? Huh? Huh? Can I? Pleeeeeeeeeze, please, please, please!

7. German Shepherd:
I'll change it as soon as I've led these people from the dark, check to make sure I haven't missed any, and make just one more perimeter patrol to see that no one has tried to take advantage of the situation.

8. Jack Russell Terrier:
I'll just pop it in while I'm bouncing off the walls and furniture.

9. Old English Sheep Dog:
Light bulb? I'm sorry, but I don't see a light bulb?

10. Cocker Spaniel:
Why change it? I can still pee on the carpet in the dark.

11. Chihuahua:
Yo quiero Taco Bulb.

12. Pointer:
I see it, there it is, there it is, right there ...

13. Greyhound:
It isn't moving. Who cares?

14. Australian Cattle Dog:
First, I'll put all the light bulbs in a little circle ...

15. Poodle:
I'll just blow in the Border Collie's ear and he'll do it. By the time he finishes rewiring the house, my nails will be dry.

The Cat's Answer:
"Dogs do not change light bulbs. People change light bulbs. So, the real question is: How long will it be before I can expect some light, some dinner, and a massage?"

I don't know what's so great about the wrinkles in their faces but I do agree that they are beautiful (I guess it's the detail)... Thanks for this link, Kiri, I can show this to some of my friends who is afraid of getting old and wrinkly, saying they can't be good anymore for the camera.
It's amazing that the amount of news that happens in the world everday always just exactly fits in the newspaper.

I dated this girl once. She was nearing 30 and she had a few tiny wrinkles. She was so concerned about her appearance, nearly obsessing about it and bothering the heck out of me even after we broke up. I can't imagine what her problem was. She was one of the most beautiful women I have ever seen. Seriously, this girl was amazingly gorgeous. If only she weren't such a nut case, then I might have tried to be a better boyfriend. Ah, who am I kidding? I'm far crazier than she is. I did her a favor by being a jerk...right?

Sorry. Someone talked about wrinkles and I had this goofy memory from a couple years ago. I'm not entirely sure why I shared it. I guess I was just trying to say that I don't understand the fear of wrinkles. It's just part of growing up.
