MOB Comments upon the latest Deville Story:

>Aside from Martin's er, shall we say, adventurous approach to spelling

Adventurous! Il'l Huve you now my:, punctiotion. Is secoond to noun and my
spelling is! fhenomenil.

To be honest, I'm glad Onslaught is back as a character rather than stats but I
still think its interesting to fit the stats to the character (sometimes).
Regarding my punctuation and spelling, I write the stories in my coffee breaks
while sipping my coffee so not only are they badly spelled but they often have
large amounts of Irish Cream Coffee splashed all over the screen.

Well I can't argue with him being weird and many Gloranthans would think he was
off his tree but perversion has little to do with it, he merely related
everything to combat. I believe Devilles next line was "Sounds like he's
eviscerating him to me!"

Did anyone ever see that Young Ones episode when Viviane hits Rick between the
legs really hard with a cricket bat and Rick yells out "Ha! Missed BOTH of my
legs!" Having recieved many a sturdy kick in the balls while sparring (and on
one memorable occasion with my own leg) this had me both wincing and falling off
my chair laughing.

You know, I think I had that lecturer too....

From your perspective, how do you think the Coders would see Deville and his
mini-horde of maniacs? I have my own view but would be interested in yours.
