hey doan, i was readin through your thread over at the pav, and recalled you wanting to make some references to specific people in the rpg community. have you done any of that? if so, care to feel us in on what ideas youve come up w/, and who may possibly be in it?

I was just going to have people who helped me a lot in my thread be included through subtle likenesses of NPCs. One example was that there would be a dungeon with a guard who would say, "I am this dungeon's warden, but I am actually quite knowledgeable about the ways of the world. Do you need any advice?" or something to that effect.
Unfortunately, I sent out ezBoard mail to everyone I was considering adding, but ezBoard automatically deleted all the mailbox messages. Now that we have this community, though, maybe I'll just include a lot of the members in my game, along with a couple who helped me a lot at the Pavilion but haven't made it here yet. Each inclusion will simply be almost an "inside joke" reference to the person here, because I still want my game to appear completely realistic to people who don't even realize what's going on.
So that's my plan.... Thanks for ruining my surprise (just kidding).

I was thinking I might do the same, if you don't mind (little allusions to people online here). Pretty much, with 51 Classes and over 51 Masters, 35 or so of which are replaceable, I have a lot of room to name characters after people online, or use little lines on townspeople and cutscenes etc., and I do think it'd be fun. I'm still not sure yet though. I'll see.

Okay, one of you guys (I won't say who just in case) sent a private message to me saying what to do, so just send me private messages with your names if you'd like to be put in my game. If you don't want your name in the game or would prefer I could make an allusion to your signon name (taizon games and jugem'd be too hard though ) instead, like Doan's "dungeon warden" idea for say. Thank you.
Now to not topic hijack, Nado does sound like a good name for a race of creatures. I don't really have anywhere to put it in though, except for maybe some random enemy model.
