And of course, genetics is a hedge science (whenever I ask geneticists questions, they throw their arms up in the air and say "sorry, our field still assumes polymorphing is fictitious" before catching them again...there's got to be a story there).

    My best guess at this point is that this is another "Dynarri and Talking Pet" scenario: whatever Draconic-reading organization had built the temple complex thousands of years ago overthrew a musa-llaneous empire, decided killing them all wasn't enough vengence, and reduced their youth past sub-sapience all the way to non-sentience; intending to give them their just deserts by letting them live for just dessert.

    The reapernana could have been a partial reversion.
    Of course, even if that's true it just raises more questions...And still leaves "How am I going to get changed back now?!?!" unanswered.


    No amount of blood that wasn't part of his body when he died is going to make a difference, I suspect.
    ... I had assumed you were just hanging out in the Unseen University’s library one fateful day and have been trying to escape their Librarian ever since. This is weirder than I expected.

    Yes, all gold is produced at the BCAK mint. It enters circulation via forum gambling. We pride ourselves on transparency.

    Keyboard. It's minted on your keyboard, entering circulation by gambling. For example, I bet 1 gold the next comic will have Hilgya or Minrah appearing. Bam, I just created 1 gold and put it into circulation! Of course, it's in escrow until the next comic shows up and we see who that gold goes to, but still.

    Better?

So while botany is hedge science, it is not the only science that can be described as "hedge".

    If you're talking about a "botany bay", I think there's a khan involved somewhere?

    I get that a lot....I'm not sure it's weirder than maintaining a half-decade-old typo as a theme, but it's probably more interesting to read.

    See, that's what I thought, but it gives me serious cognitive dissonance. I've never made a forum bet because I don't have any forum gold. Is this the reason I don't have any forum gold?

    I bet you ten gold that I will still be confused after your next response.

    No bet. There, now you have ten gold and are still confused. The system works!

    Edit: and before anyone highlights that Anel is Neutral, his brother was killed by Tarquin and he might still want revenge.
    I suggest Anel is an AntiPaladin, where as the 4th forgotten 'twin' (really quadruplets at this point) - Lane - is a Paladin.

    There may also be a fraternal 'Twin' Sorcerer (a Gal) called Lena, True Neutral.

    Nela, of course, is one of Celia's professors.

    Only if you consider "Vaarsuvius", "Vaarsuvius", "Vaarsuvius", "Vaarsuvius", "Vaarsuvius", "Vaarsuvius", "Vaarsuvius", "Vaarsuvius", "Vaarsuvius", "Vaarsuvius", "Vaarsuvius", "Vaarsuvius", "Vaarsuvius", "Vaarsuvius", "Vaarsuvius", and "Vaarsuvius" to be distinct. Otherwise, it's only 226,800.

    That should be one of 24. Not sure what happened to the last one.
