    Default AMEN XXII: WARNING - Contents May Cause Insomnia, Nausea, Nightmares, and Psychosis

    Welcome to AMEN





    Previous Threads:



    AMEN Trophy Case:

    Spoiler
    Show



    Want to join? Simple::

    1. Wander aimlessly in.
    2. Avoid the random AMENites/HALOers who will attempt to kill you.
    3. Poke one of the current members until they hand you the paperwork.
    4. If the aforementioned current member you poke kills you rather than hands you the paperwork, then you didn't pay attention to step 2. Repeat steps 2 & 3.
    5. Sign the mountain of paperwork, preferably in your own blood, although anyone's blood will do.
    6. Prepare to have had your non-existent soul to have been sold to whoever gave you the legalese our leader-by-default, Cat Sinister.
    7. Congratulations! You're now an official AMENite! Do random stuff! Kill people! Make things explode!


    And if you're just visiting, then please do not leave muddy footprints in the base. Also, please try to avoid bleeding all over the furniture. All those who visit should be aware that AMEN take no responsibility whatsoever for any torture/evil practices/soul stealing/spontaneous combustion/death that may occur to the individual visiting. Honest.

    PM puts up a large neon sign to alert everyone who may have missed it of the godmodding-immune status quo button that will activate whenever anything happens to the base.

    Flickerdart quickly deploys a fortress on the virgin landscape of the thread. He then spends some time pondering how many members on that banner still wage war against Good, and how many new ones have joined the ranks since.

    To Festy's surprise, the fortress boasts rooms that defy the laws of making sense in an equal manner, and as such no room is better or worse than what its inhabitant makes of it. Except for giant man-eating scorpions that seem to persist no matter what. Flickerdart is nowhere to be seen to answer why this is the case.

    Uncle yanks Flickerdart out of whatever extradimensional space he was occupying, and holds him up in the air while shouting in his face, "Festy! It's Festy! No i! Not Feisty, Festy! Yeesh," he says, dropping Flickerdart.

    "At least you didn't kill me. Kudos." Flickerdart says as he dusts off his behind. "Now, I'm not too familiar with AMEN's military, specifically in the area of siege weaponry and troop transports. What have we got?"

    Haruki grabs a new tome of Tsubasa and jumps on the couch to read.

    *sniff* Azumanga was so awesome. Oh, now let's get to Tsubasa and............MegaTokyo? What's my player doing lately?

    Anyway..... isn't anyone doing anything interesting lately?

    they were actually talking about you about 7 pages (last thread) back...

    @ Soraus:(that actually sounds cooler than saurous...) I'll spell things as I please, I could have looked at preview posts to find out how to spell your name but I didn't because I didn't feel like it...have an easy to pronounce name, like Oblivious Sheep/ Sheep of Oblivion, and people will pronounce/spell it right... Most of my characters are named Athren 'Liah for other things, and everyone called me laih, so I just used the SoO screen name so I wouldn't have to go through what I'm doing to you...

    Magtok glances at his watch.

    I'm gonna be gone before HALO gets here. If anyone is actually online when they arrive, tell them I said hi. But do it with the barrel of a gun, whilst simultaneously telling them they aren't wanted here and they should go back to their Octopus's garden before I come back and make them regret breaking into our home.

    Gwyn set's up his stuff on the high arched, gothic cieling of the main lobby. His bed is in the corner of an arch, lit by a single candle. He also has several chairs, a table, and a refrigerator, looking out of place among all the stark medieval era simple furniture.

    "Don't worry. The devices won't trigger from here, and I haven't done the insides yet. Can you imagine? These fortresses don't come with plot devices as a pre-installed option!" says Flickerdart as he brings the Spontaneous Cute Puppy Generator online. "There. Plenty of those little buggers will start appearing on the outskirts soon enough."

    Do we HAVE to do this?

    They just suddenly decided to attack our base without any consent when they know we're running on a Plot-free system? What if I don't want to get into any more arguments with those guys anymore?
