Again, it was the Archers who interpreted this as the Undead...

The Anonymous author may have just as easily been referring to Dwarves...


OK, I suppose now I'll be hearing from the Dwarves on this - ok, so perhaps it was a reference to Barbarians?

Well who else? Poison darts are typically associated with assassins, but we don't have those. Rogues are the next best thing.

I know for sure it isn't me. My troops fire broadhead arrows.


I also don't see how 'ghoulish' could apply to anyone but undead, seeing as ghouls are undead.

"lethal" is not necessarily the same as "poison".

Arrows are lethal, with or without poison tips...

Just saying....

But you may be right. Centaurs also shoot arrows, come to think of it.

Or maybe whoever wrote that should grow a pair and goddamn come out and tell us what (s)he meant.

Just a thought.

To be honest, maybe it's not such a good idea to make comments on the anonymous post UpQuark. You may unwillingly give some hints away one way or the other.

It wasn't me by the way who posted it. Or was it?...

Am I the first to reach 1000+ messages in this game? I now have 1009, NOT counting GM traffic, which is an additional 146.

No wonder my job fired me, my spouse left me, and I haven't changed clothes in 5 weeks!
