the following has me a bit confused, i got it from following the dunkie's bequests thread.

To the last Knight of the Crying Spire, I leave the suit of armor worn by Richard the Lion-hearted on his Crusade, because it's up to You to lead the next one. I also leave you the sword Excalibur - unfortunately, I can't seem to find it at the moment. To whomever finds Excalibur, deliver it to the Draco Foundation for a reward and title. The Draco Foundation will promptly turn the sword over to you, my knight.

any help is most appreciated.

I don't know. Personally I find it interesting that those people left comments in the year 2004 nyahnyah.gif

yes but i was under the assumption that the posting went along with canon material (strongly supported by the post by "the laughing man"). my only thought was that in 11 years, supposedly blood elves would again sprout thorns, but our dear friend wasn't a blood elf if i recall. he was an abassador from that other city. serethia?

anyway, who knows. like i said i was just wondering what other people had heard

Sounds like only a few of the players in that conversation are "in the know".

Umbrafer is probably a GD or IE that knows about the Horrors and is actively trying to stall their advance. He/she is aware of the Laughing Man's past (recent and not so recent) skirmishes w/ the Enemy.

The Laughing Man... Go read AH's site. Someone will post here soon, I would but don't have it on this computer.
He (LM) seems to be the most willing to fight the Enemy. The sword is probably symbolic for "fighting spirit" or some drek--hey, I think I'm on to something here. Imagine that run: "How do you steal that which has no form?"

Memphis is a Bad Guy. Horror agent or some other Big Bad.

11 years from D's wacking....2068. Dunno. Next wave of Shedim? Enemy? Something else?

Who knows. But the "Bad People" know that there are beings around that are aware of their existence and plans so we could (have) expect(ed) to see some moving and shaking in the immortal department.

Thats what I think, anyway.

I'm going to assume that the "2004" is a typo. wink.gif

Guys! This is all from the Annotable Will, which is on DV8's web site. The comments are posts from 'real people' who have logged into the site. They don't necessarily have anything to do with anything. I don't know just what this Memphis dude has been smoking, but I don't recall anything in canon corresponding to what he's yapping on about.

Well shit.

Q: Don't I feel stupid?

A: "Yes". *slaps own head*

Someone should post a disclaimer on that puppy.

Hehe, I gotta say that shadowtalk was pretty entertaining and somewhat well written, if a bit poofy on Harly's part.
My take on Memphis was that it was members of some threat, Winterknight or Humanis for example, who've gotten a wiff of knowledge and half-thruths, starting to imagine they're in the big league.

Why thank you.

Bwhahahahahaa. This is all very funny to me. smile.gif

Q: What's the first rule of shadowtalk?
A: It might be true, false, a deliberate lie, a rumour, a counter-rumour or whatever. You have to decide for yourself what's true and what's not. smile.gif

Well, like it was explained above, these are all shadowtalk comments left on my website. Mainly by my gaming group as well as DSF and Bulldrek posters. The timestamps are set in 2004 since if I were to add, say 59 years to them and set them in 2063 they'd start to lag behind on the official game timeline. So to undo any confusion, I just keep them on the time the database server receives the comments. smile.gif

I suspected that, but wasn't sure. The inclusion of The Laughing Man, a well-known name for Harley, set me off but I should have guessed from the appearance of Umbrafer (which I was sure I had heard before, and I now remember is another of Kagetenchi's screen names).

I'm keeping an eye out for retarded shit, like people registering Shadowtalkers like "Richard Villiers" or "Lofwyr" or some such. I'll leave that to the moderators and users who I trust not to abuse that privilege.

You might want to stop names like Gold Master, Grey Knight, Fastjack, or Script Diver then. Too damned confusing if someone was to impersonate a Shadowtalk person.

Using AH's handy Immortals Scorecard, I registered a couple of the most popular ones to a dummy account.
northern lights
so DV8, can you clear up one thing for me?

is there any canon reference or even hint for some event pertaining to the 11 years from now comment? i've been trying like hell to keep up to date on anything involving the immortals of the sixth world and i can only think of a couple things having to do with harlequin. also, what is the significance of haveing a poster registered as our beloved knight? will this change at all?

my thanks

What with the link to the NPC section, I assume that Laughing Man is none other than our favourite DV8.
As for the 11 years thing, I have no doubt that plenty will happen, but I am unaware of any event supposed to occur in 2075.
Which actually brings up the problem of what year the Shadowtalk is set in; I was wondering about that. Care to shed any light on that?

Checking my database, it seems that Memphis is registered to simonw2000. [His email address is in the link for Memphis] I suggest you ask him, because I really wouldn't know. smile.gif Maybe AH can provide you with a definitive answer, he seems to know just about everything SR-related.

I can see blocking most of those names, but Grey Knight belongs to spudman. Note to Deev: So if anyone starts using that name, check the email it's registered to before deleting it or changing it. wink.gif
