Horse enters press room, sits on chair, falls through, mutters that they should make sturdier chairs. I don't know if I understand, is she saying We can't have them take us with Sow - that if they take the town, we still have to get out (which makes perfect sense)?

-Eric comes prepanicked and prebefuddled (or is that, prefuddled?)

Dang, I thought I'd made the accent understandable enough. No, what she's saying is "we can't have them taking us's (our) white sow".

It'll probably be further explained with the next update.

Every time I tell myself, no more posts with only four hours of sleep, I break my own rule. Well, almost every time.
Fits in with the ways my history professor mentioned, for the naming of places. Such as, say Newton, whose derivation... yes.

Several of the town names used in Erigineeaverse are in some way derieved from their location or similar.

Avelyon - (Ave) Lion, suitable for the seat of the Winged Lioness.
Loch Lyeon - again, derieved from 'lion', and located by a lake
Herkrip - Grip, which is Swedish for gryphon

Only two more towns I can recall offhand have been named, one of which is Sihainne (which I suppose with some good will you could get to resemble 'stallion') the other of which was mentioned in the story I wrote before OMW, and I can't recall the name of it right now.

Fair enough, I'd think!
Though I wonder (wait, wait a few days) whether they think the Grivjon are after a sow, a child, a pony, ... (or "sow" just being their way to refer to something of value, as it's been used here to mean the opposite (the expression "making a silk purse out of a sow's ear", for making something lovely out of something common)...

Well, the thanks you get! I'll have you know I was five-year-running Drop the Pig winner in all of Greater Sow! he considers saying, but doesn't... I assume not.

Well... She's a very squirmy pig when she wants to be.

It's a good thing he's also the local Chase the Pig champion five years running too, then. Unfortunately, I'm guessing so's the sow. <announcer>We rejoin our heroes in the middle of an exhilirating match..</announcer>

Llamasss!!!

Postby Schissel on Fri Jan 21, 2005 7:08 pm

The very thing, the very thing. To be said four times fast, that is.

(and watches as the threads of the story get closer and a llama is attacked by Colone, Grivjon raiders, and Eight-Leg Pony relentless all... perhaps she would have been safer just being carried)

(realizing who the Llama is, considers editing this but decides to leave it as a testament to why, again, he should not be posting things at 10 pip emma. Again. Still, it makes an amusing image, if an odd misunderstanding.)

(Unwisely continuing to use this thread a bit more instead of, oh, starting a new one, he...)
Particularly nice exchange/sequence in today's comic, I thought. (And Attention Llouston, we have lost the Llama...)
