View Full Version : Mysthillarium IX OT Discussion Bar And Grill Of Random Funness Things

Yay for long titles.
Oh, and Marae, we're up to number IX (9) not X (10) since the last one was VIII (8).
And sorry if what I type is fast or short. I've been getting used to D&D PBP, so half the time I expect myself to listen to the DM say what I see, then remember it's up to me.
I gotta get used to this again.
lol, marae, so, what's the problem in this one? BTW, interesting into, first one I've seen like that to an MH
08-28-2005, 03:54 AM
Actually, Chess, it is Ten. Eight was the first one we did together, nine was the one you and Achenar started, so this is Ten. I'm going to start a new topic just to avoid confusion. I meant to do that yesterday when I started everything else, but got hurried and forgot.
I am getting used to work again, so my answers may be a bit more rushed these days than we're all used to.
We can certainly discuss MH 9 in here if you guys want to. http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_wink.gif

So can this still be place of random things?
08-30-2005, 05:49 PM
I don't see why not. We can be random to our heart's content in here, stick to the storyline 9or try to) in the MHX, and discuss what we should do next in the waiting room. Works for me!
08-31-2005, 01:00 PM
Oh, good. I need my daily quota of randomness.
08-31-2005, 06:49 PM
Lots of things have changed with me since I started reading certain webcomics.
For instance, to me, "randomness" means "random TGing". Hey, that gives me an idea...
08-31-2005, 08:53 PM
Okay, here's a bit of random fact.
When I first got the Taser in the last MH, it was an actual taser.
Then someone reminded me we weren't supposed to take any technology that Myst/Riven wouldn't have (one wonders about the Jedia lightsabers and Marae's floaty laughy trick), so it became a dagger with the word "Taser" written on it.
A bit later, I decided I didn't want to be carrying a deadly weapon around and the dagger turned out to be only a letter opener.
Even later, when Tora became a witch, the Taser morphed into a broom via spellcasting.
Now, Tora can swithc it between broom and dagger/letter opener, although no garentee that it will be a dagger or letter opener when it isn't a broom. That part seems to be random whenever she changes it back from being a broom. But it is a nice broom. Silver bristles, chrome handle with blue lightning etched on it, and that blue sapphire on the top/pommel. And, of course, "Taser" written down the side. Taser has become its name.
Now for the really fun part. Originally (after the Taser became a letter opener that is) the Taser was going to become something else entirely. This was before the witches entered the story and Tora needed a broom.
It was going to be a letter opener, that when you rubbed the sapphire, a jinn popped out. The jinn could grant as many wishes as we needed, but only when we were all wishing together for the same thing. I had a phrase for that - what was it? Something about him only being a junior level and only able to grant wishes on a "popular demand" basis I think.
But the jinn idea got trashed when it turned out Tora needed a broom, and the dagger became a broom instead of a magic letter opener with a genie-of-the-jewel inside the sapphire.
Now how's that for a random MH fact?

Tora, that is an absolutely -- random random MH fact! http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/16x16_smiley-very-happy.gif

Limit to witch powers: need to recite poetry. http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/16x16_smiley-indifferent.gif Any suggestions?
I should have a spell to turn powertools into pudding, but its the translating that gets me. It doesn't always translate out of Old English into rhyme, so I need to change it around a bit...
<span class="ev_code_PURPLE">Electric mayhem, powertools,
change to pudding... casseroles?...</span>
*the muppet band Electric Mayhem suddenly appears, Animal toting a chainsaw and Zoot blowing chocolate pudding casserole out of his sax*
"Drat! I said that wrong!"
<span class="ev_code_PURPLE">Shoo, shoo,
Away with you!</span>
*Electric Mayhem disappears*
<span class="ev_code_RED">testing color</span>
<span class="ev_code_GREEN">testing color</span>

Hey, I had to figure out which colors show up best on the blue background!
Let's see, where's that change-powertools-to-pudding spell I promised Tasho?
*hands chainsaw to Grey Tasho*
*Grey Tasho begins chasing Blue Tasho* Mwahahahaha!!!
Okay, here we go!
<span class="ev_code_PURPLE">Powertools now change to custard,
chocolate pudding, ketchup, mustard!</span>
Grey Tasho is suddenly covered in all of the above, and wrinkles her nose. "Eeeeeeeeeewww!!!!"
Tora winces at the white, brown, red, and yellow splotches all over the Wulf. "Oops. Maybe I should use a different spell."
Spell suggestions, anyone? What would you like to see The Great and Powerful Tora do next? http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_biggrin.gif

Chess, if you're planning to interrupt the wedding, make sure you coordinate it with my efforts to do likewise. We are going to have a mission this time. http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/59.gif
Do you still have my e-mail address? I know you prefer e-mail to PT. If you don't have it, let me know and I'll PT it to you.
The rest of you didn't see any of this. Not a bit. Uh-uh. Wedding's going off without a hitch.
EDIT: Chess, just to save time, I went ahead and PT'd you with my e-mail addy and a synopsis of what I have brewing.

IT'S HOT! SOMEONE PLEASE LET ME TURN THE A/C ON!!!!
How's that for randomness. ^.^
Really though...it's hot! My hand's stuck to the mouse!

My computer is haunted. http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_eek.gif
Or at least my e-mail program is.
It maximized itself a few moments ago when I was reading a thread in the Uru forums.
My hands were in my lap. Mouse and keyboard are on the desk.
There wasn't even any new mail to pick up.
There. I feel better now. Thank you for the random place of randomness in which to randomly place random things.
marae, sometimes when programs are finished with a task (loading, checking for updates, ect.) they will maximize so you know they are done. The trouble is knowing what they were doing in the first place.
09-06-2005, 02:10 PM
Well, it gave me no clue. Thing is, I have my e-mail program on almost all the time, and although I have noticed it maximize spontaneously once in awhile, I always thought it was something I had unwittingly done.
Today I was nowhere near the controls, proof positive that it is doing this on its own.
It was eerie.
09-07-2005, 12:30 AM
Something tells me I should have invented a Taser-umbrella spell. Unfortunately, you can't find rhymes for everything. Oh well, can't have them all!
09-07-2005, 03:09 AM
Aye, that's true. Like orange and (I think) purple.
09-11-2005, 02:48 PM
Ok, I'm back! Time for me to figure out what the heek is going on... lovely.
A random thought occurred to me: CK, are you on the Facebook (facebook.com)?
09-16-2005, 10:07 PM
I have an idea: why don't we use this thread for a sort of "MH Bloopers" place?
CK slams the sledgehammer into the chainsaw and... the hammer head shatters! Grey Tasho pulls the chaisaw free and begins revving it again as CK blubbers over the loss of his sledgehammer. Tora wonders aloud "Would now be a good time to make up that fix it spell?"
"CUT!!!" yells the director.
09-17-2005, 07:46 PM
I like the idea, Tora!
Of course, I can't think of one right now...
09-19-2005, 05:26 AM
Ra'Phil stepped aside when Corsec was walking over and instead, Corsec fell into the creek.
09-28-2005, 05:04 PM
I was trying to come up for a spell to turn people and things invisible. Which really won't help Ra'phil, who needs the opposite, but it was fun.
Anyway, I've got a better and shorter one that works. But here's one that I ditched.
<span class="ev_code_PURPLE">Like a shadow in the night,
Like glow-in-the-dark in the light,
Like clear waters, like a glass,
Be invisible as gas!</span>
Due to that unfortunate last word there, however, I'd probably end up turning people into vapor. I don't want to pass anyone off as gas, so this spell got cut.
09-29-2005, 08:06 AM
More to the point, you don't want them passing gas... http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/59.gif

Tora swooped and twirled through the air on her broom. The artillary down there weren't even getting near her with those whipped cream cannons! In fact, they kept shooting each other as she flew around between them.
Tora snickered, then had an idea. Rising just out of range of the cannons, which infuriated the guards to no end, she took a moment to come up with a good spell.
<span class="ev_code_PURPLE">Loud and proud and clear and strong,
Amplify the sound of this song!</span>
With that she hit 'play' on her mp3 player (and made sure to take the earphones out of her ears, very hastily).
And then Tora began dive-bombing the cannons, the fierce strains of "Ride of the Valkyries" accompanying her flight!
(didn't have a chance to put it in earlier before Tora ended up joining the gang in the underground forest, but I thought I'd share. Enjoy!)

That deleted scene is now in there... I liked it... check page... something...lol. And you can even click the link for the music in the background while you read.
Oh, and Speedy, I'm on facebook! Or maybe you've already found me... whats your name?
mine just happens to be in the sig.

Gab punches the wooden circle from the garage door and it hits Corsec square in the nose...
"Can I get some help here? I'm bleeding all over the set..."
10-06-2005, 07:27 AM
Corsec, I'll poke you. Then you'll know who I am. Hint is in my last name...
"Ok, so tell us your story," said GT.
"Well... I was borna bout 45 years ago on a farm. My father was a farmer... us Gums were very good at collecting spearmint..."
"Stop! We mean where did you get that map!" stated GT.
"But my mother got tired of spearmint... she wanted to do something called doublemint! When my father refused, she left him. It was said. She left him for a peppermint farmer named Orbitz, my uncle! Apparently, he was much cleaner looking than us regular Gums. Orbitz Gum and Wrigley Gum have been archrivals for years and years, trying to freshen up our stock year after year but alas, everyone liked that clean feeling they got after buying Orbitz' gum. And so, we got wrapped up by the Aluminmum guards and well... tossed away..."
