    Default ABR Discussion Thread XVII: 40% Spam, 55% Banter, 5% Actually Meaningful Discussion

    Welcome to the 17th ABR Discussion Thread!

    Because we used to burn through new ABR threads so quickly, we created the Discussion thread. All banter goes here, and all comics and non-canon kills go in the main thread. (see line below)

    Avatar Battle Royale: We All Live in A Yellow Citadel is the current thread. Post artwork here.

    Trailer for the Fat Fish Fury plot by Kpenguin

    Our current trailer
    By Omicroncubed

    Lying, I kept asking and you didn't say anything. Also, you've already made a thread!
    Now, I really gotta go to school. Bye!

    I know that. I'm making the templates because I want to practise my art. Plus, if I enter FI, I won't have to make all the templates from scratch.
    It's kind of like fanart.

    As for the thread title, I think 5% meaningful discussion is a bit much for us.

    Also I think Gremlin called it before Lying.. not sure on that though.

    @v Don't encourage them.

    It doesn't say what the meaningfulness is about so it might get that high because people seems to argue about the universe, physics, word meanings and rules (or maybe Gremlin tries making it look better)

    They are bigger than Anti-Heroes banners (look in sig) so why are they accepted and not mine.

    Gremlin, you didn't respond to my new idea on the soul catchers.
    I have an idea, the soul eaters are the inevitables, the inevitability of passing on to the afterlife. They hunt down ghosts and bring them to a plane that coincides with their alignment, whether they want to or not.

    Personally, I would have gong with "ABR Discussion Thread XVII: Spam, Spam, Spam, Discussion and Spam.", as a Python reference.
    That is, if Lying didn't call it, twice. Which he did.

    Sorry about that, it got buried. I like it, but I don't think it makes much sense for inevitables to go against the order of the universe.
    /\ Sorry, Q, but I called it first.
    Also, I think there should be a rule with calling the threads that the guy who calls it first gets it, unless he's already made one. At least for Discussion threads.

    I'm not sure if Lying called it first, but I'm pretty sure he responded to Gremlin when he asked.

    So FI is where most of the ABR cast is in a resistance because of the UNA being weird?

    Q can't watch movies on his computer so that's a no.

    That's a good motive.


    As for Lying or Gremlin calling it first, Lying had called the thread before the last one and didn't get either the last one or one before that.

    Yeah, but that's because lying wasn't on and we were very very close to 50 pages. Besides, I let him name the thread, which is the only real benefit that comes with making a discussion thread.

    Check up on Ins, he belong to the Holy Sovice Militia, which is largely why Lying opposes him (Lying has strong ties with the New Sovice Empire)

    @Gremlin, the inevitables are going with the natural order of the universe. Here's the standard life, which most people go through:

    1) Be born
    2) Live
    3) Die
    4) Please step through the door which corresponds to your alignment
    5) Live in the Plane
    6) Become part of the plane.

    Here's what people who become ghosts do:

    1) Steps one through Three
    2) Decide "Wait, no!" and stay at the ethereal plane
    3) Wait until something is done (Which they often don't influence)
    4) Move on to the afterlife.

    Whereas if the Praeseans were inevitables, they would be going against the natural order of things. They would be represent the inevitability of what?
    maruts exemplify the inevitability of death, other inevitables represent the inevitability and fact of upholding a deal. Praeseans as inevitables don't exemplify anything, assuming that the soul catchers would then be natives who still send people to an afterlife.

    Okay, I'm gonna try my best to answer everyone.

    No, actually only once. The time in the 15th thread, and maybe some other times THERE but never elsewhere.

    Of course I am. If this were the other way around, I probably wouldn't complain. What matters is, if Lying made the same arguments I am, those arguments would still be right.

    No, he did not respond. Nobody did. But then again, that's how I generally get treated.

    He only called the thread before the last one Not the 14t.
    And he. Already. GOT ONE!!! Why does he get to have two when other people don't have any?! It is completely unfair! It's like someone winning a contest twice!
    Anyways, on to something else.

    Ah, I see where we disagree. You see ghosthood as something where the souls DECIDE to stick around. I see it as something where they have unfinished business which they must attend to before they pass on.
