Jordan Williams: I miss Gunnar and our axe v sword arguments Oct 26, 2020 23:17:22 GMT
nerdthenord: Good! Glad he’s ok Oct 26, 2020 23:00:23 GMT
Dandelion: Got message from the Jarl - he is fine but has been busy! Oct 26, 2020 22:58:50 GMT
Brother Nathaniel: Man I haven't seen that dude in forever. Oct 26, 2020 21:39:20 GMT
seth: Yes it has...I was wondering that too. Oct 25, 2020 0:35:42 GMT
Dandelion: Hi... anyone heard anything from Jarl Gunnar? Its been some time now... Oct 24, 2020 13:45:12 GMT
treeslicer: Welcone back, libra. :) Oct 23, 2020 23:22:09 GMT
Brother Nathaniel: Good afternoon Libra! Oct 22, 2020 22:12:02 GMT
AndiTheBarvarian: Hi libra! Oct 22, 2020 19:13:40 GMT
libra: Good evening everybody! Haven't been here for a while and never used the shoutbox before. So I'll give it a try... Oct 22, 2020 16:24:20 GMT
AndiTheBarvarian: Yes we learn, that's why the Imperium Romanum is known nowadays. Why erase it when it's still lucrative? Those loricae sell like hot cakes! Oct 15, 2020 11:19:58 GMT *
RufusScorpius: I didn't know barbarians could learn things? Interesting, but you are half Roman on your father's side. Veii was the last Etruscan town conquered by the Romans, then erased from every public record. We only know about it from the Greeks. Oct 15, 2020 11:11:07 GMT *
AndiTheBarvarian: Veii? Of course we Barbarians know the history of the empires we conquered! Oct 14, 2020 19:49:48 GMT
RufusScorpius: All that remains is the memory, and we will soon take care of that as well. Remember the town of Veii? Yah, most people don't either. Oct 14, 2020 19:29:33 GMT
AndiTheBarvarian: The only remains are the grins without the enemies! Oct 14, 2020 18:31:13 GMT
RufusScorpius: A Noisy Cricket is a gun that your enemies laugh at once.... just once..... Oct 14, 2020 12:16:07 GMT *
AndiTheBarvarian: Size does matter! We know this from Star Trek, the smaller the phaser is the more powerful it is. Those small types from early NG desintegrated people, the RPG sized later ones just hurt a bit. Oct 14, 2020 7:10:11 GMT *
RufusScorpius: Love to have a noisy cricket. Don't know why it wasn't liked by Smith's character in the movie except that it didn't look cool. But a pistol that can fit in your front pocket that can blow holes through walls.... hell ya! Oct 13, 2020 19:03:03 GMT
Dandelion: Noisy Cricket, anyone? ;-) Oct 13, 2020 18:56:42 GMT
Brother Nathaniel: oddj, until then though they have to stick to the sling. It was good enough for king David after all. Oct 12, 2020 21:03:57 GMT
