Whoo! Crayon!

...can I have teal?

*glomps dryhad*

newbie kit time!

*ticks off* A TF gun, six cans unlabeled soda, a squirrel teddy, a cookie (and not one of Cheez's salt-n-glass ones, he'll give you a bag of those later I'm sure...), and a dead fish.

*hands the aforementioned items to dryhad*

And here, have this too!

*hands dryhad an Infinite Scroll of Doom-Ish, pen included*
The english language is confused, you know that? For example: You use your feet in soccer, sock people in football, park on a driveway, and drive on a parkway, and apartments are stuck together.

Three newbies on the same page! What has this thread come to? With all the RPing practice and such, you'd think this was the highly-recommended-and-superfun Mayhem!

Good thing you've all got your newbie packs, you might end up needing them! Also, you might need these...

*Pulls out a pair of cookie-rimmed sunglasses, a pair of invisible-rimmed sunglasses, and a pair of light-rimmed sunglasses*

First, you get the cookie ones Irisheep. *Hands them over*
Second, you get the invisible ones, Thassa. *Hands them over*
Last, you get the ones made of light, Dryhad! *Hands them over*

Also, Crayons can be quite useful, especially for stuff like...

*Takes Purple Crayon, and draws a grape in mid-air. The drawing turns into a real grape, and it falls into my hand*

That! *Eats the grape*

Inventory.
I also have an art thread!

OOh, newbies in a three! Indeed for the yes, welcome is what you are all. Irisheep, Thassa, Dryhad, I am to bidding you welcome to these forums of the Goonish Shive. Mayhem, the place is that you are recommended to be visiting, but I know already some of you have been. Gifts from me to you are:

*gives Irisheep, Thassa and Dryhad a shiny hubcap, a can of mackerel, a bag of salt-n-glass cookies and a piece of overpriced plastic (or POP for short) each*

Yes indeed you are must not to worry, talking in to a manner of this I am not normally doing.

Wait...how can I glomp somebody who's only tied to this world by and post count and is currently only a spirit (or something along those lines)?

Oh, and thanks for all the stuff I got earlier, everyone else.

Just adding another to the newbie body count. Although I get the sense I've stepped in at the wrong time...

Path to EGS: Guilty Gear, searching "Guilty Gear webcomic"[1], came across tvtropes.org and its entry for Guilty Gear, which leads to entry for "Stupid Sexy Flanders", a small explanation of EGS's V5, a moment of "wtf???", and thus ensues a marathon of sitting at the computer.

[1] a moment of silence for "Holy Zen". That and it turns out I should've been searching for "Everybody Loves Dizzy" (Guilty Gear related but not a webcomic per se) which resides at deviantart.

In any case, I'll just be my usual infrequent long-winded outta-left-field alienated posting self.

Hey, PantheonH. *glomps*

Here, have an Infinite Scroll of Doom-Ish*!

Also, I second the motion to steer you to Mayhem :)



*Pen included. Scroll may or may not have anything to do with doom.

Oops, my mistake :oops:

No one else did, though... right? :shifty:

:grumble: now I feel bad....

You know what? Have an extra item as consolation! *gives a DD/RR mod for TF gun*

Also, I almost posted this as a new topic... that would've been embarrassing... :oops: :oops: :oops: :oops:

Yay!!! Stuff give time! Erm... *Searches through cloak*
Well, erm... have a glomp! *glomps!* And a word of advice, which should be heeded by all!!!;
While wild animals in fields do play, they hardly think to hold it in all day!
A little proverb that I made up, the moral is: When walking barefoot in a field, watch for poop!
Actually, I think that I've found something for you! *Hands PhaethonH a mirror with a silver handle* Now you can always see the one you love most*! Emjoy, there's no need to thank me!



*Mirror is not magical in any way, it shows your reflection. Most people are exceedingly vain! Although, you could use it to look under doors at the person you are most attracted to (excluding yourself, though it could be done) while they are getting changed...

This post does not endorse perverted behaviour of the kind mentioned above, though the writer thinks that it's a great laugh, you should try it sometime. Also, his legal department has advised him to apologise for implying that you might be physically attracted to yourself. He, personally, finds it as disgusting as incest (sorry to you incesters out there) as you are related to yourself!

Fond of creating characters inspired by songs; I once made a pair of characters based on Red Flag.

Well, I'm slightly disappointed in the Mayhem wiki. It's MediaWiki v1.5.5 (Wikipedia, eating their own dogfood, runs v1.11.alpha) and considerably lacking in parser hooks and extensions, so all sorts of neat-o tricks that are possible on Wikipedia aren't possible in Mayhem's.

Hi all, I wanted to announce this piece of the net I'm officially a newbie EGS fan (or bunny, as it seems to be the word in this lurky depths)!!!

I'm here to forum-chat with all sort of other bunnies as I keep on enjoying this master piece webcomic, hopefully having such a great time doing this as I did reading the comic online and will reading it on book once I get them.

I'm Argentinian (Argentina, is the last country to the south-east of south America if anyone doesn't and wish to know) my native language is Spanish(a very special kind of Spanish, truthfully speaking :P), so forgive me in advance if I write with spelling, grammatical, or syntactic errors.

To extend no more, I hope I can get to befriend most of you!!
