Uh-oh! It looks like if you go from Wise Pkunk, to Great Pkunk, and then all the way to Amazing Pkunk, you become "TOO GOOD! TOO GOOD!", which means you circle all the way around to pure evil! Oops!

Huh, and I thought I had done a sufficient enough of a job doing little bad and annoying things to prevent this from happening, but it looks like I've just gotten too perfect after all! ;D-smf

So now I'm an Ilwrath torturer... and while many would consider (and probably rightly so) that this means I'm an Ilwrath and my occupation is torturing, I prefer to think that I'm in all actuality one who has been assigned the specific task of torturing Ilwraths! :twisted:

Honestly I don't really think that there is much of a difference there.

Well, in the first scenario I'm an Ilwrath torturing Hu-mans, in the 2nd I'm a human torturing Ilwraths! >:D-smf

Not necessarily, as an Ilwrath torturer could also be an Ilwrath who tortures other Ilwrath. See, it all fits together.

Oh, it all makes sense now! ;)

It would seem the Ilwrath will stop at nothing to please their gods, Dogar and Kazon! Even if that means torturing each other!
Yikes! :o-smf

For some strange reason, after Reborn Shofixti, at 550 posts your title becomes "Oh the shame!" so it's got me thinking there must be a connection between "Reborn Shofixti" and "Yehat Revolutionist", since it proved to be the case with the different titles associated with the Androsynth and Orz. My reasearch shall continue...whilst I endure the shame!

EDIT: "Down with Queenie!" at 555. *Has Civil War* at 560.

It just dawned on me, is using the word "M:bot" just an easy substitution for Mhrnmhrm?

I suppose it wouldn't fit very well otherwise. Although, being entirely honest, it could also mean a bot which says 'M'. Like the knights of ni, in a way.
