MUDding and "The Princess Bride"

Postby Lorsalian » Sun May 14, 2006 1:25 am

Several top things I needed to know about MUDding I learned from 'The Princess Bride'

14. There is a shortage of perfection in this world - try not to damage any of it.
13. Anything worthwhile usually involves a miracle.
12. "All dead" are a good source of loose change.
11. Your first story is usually better.
10. Don't trust a rogue who brings their own poison to a wine-tasting.
9. Someone who is enfeebled looks exactly the same as someone who isn't.
8. When in the legendary lair of a beast, don't profess disbelief in its existance.
7. Nothing can overwhelm the power of a good plot-element.
6. Know your enemy. You may use different tactics against half-a-dozen men vs just one.
5. Know and keep track of your assets. ("Where is that wheelbarrow?")
4. Try not to kill the random hireling who might have something you need. ("I did not mean to jog him so hard!")
3. If something is too rubbish to be believed, it just might be false.
2. A powerful tool of amusement and annoyance is the rhyme (Yes, yes, some of the time).
1. Losing your life to a machine really _sucks_.

You keep using that word, I dont think it means what you think it means.

You seem a decent fellow, I hate to kill you.

I know something you don't know....I am not left handed.

In fact pretty much the entire fight scene with the Spainard and Wesley.
