Yeep! Argh! Thanks for pointing it out, I'm gonna have to NOT let my horrific brain try to come up with names on the fly, apparently it will just plagiarize them without realizing it while thinking it's being cleverly original (horse moving erratically around town and so forth). Ohhhh. Sorry about that!!

And yeah it's not like there's any point anyway since I'm even worse at keeping anyone else alive than I am at keeping my own @ going, which is saying something. At least this horse whose name I swiped from you stuck around a little longer than the last one, who bolted before I even got into the dungeon really...although in retrospect they sure had the right idea. I don't THINK I'd accidentally named THEM after anyone here. ... I think.

Ah no that was "Carrot"... And it sure wouldn't have helped that I accidentally set them to "seek and destroy" after they had probably just momentarily staggered into the edge of the woods around the mouth of the newbie dungeon. .... Okay no, no member by THAT name on this forum, at least.

But egads! Sorry! Terrible, terrible.

No problems, I wasn't offended, I was amused to see my name there. I also enjoyed watching you try to work out why you couldn't control your mount wielding a shield, with the message still sitting up top on the screen :)

Thanks, that's a relief! (But I'm gonna work on watching naming things...) And yeah, who needs to like, read important status messages staring you in the face when you can just flail around instead. ; )

And maybe some day I'll figure out why it doesn't think a whip is a suitable weapon for using from horseback (after STARTING you with a whip and a horse)...and whether or not I was actually attacking with it, or just fists or something. : P

Sexy always starts with a whip. Broad spear is the normal beastmaster weapon, at least in bands based on heng. Its a large to-hit penalty for non-riding weapons

YEAH! Thanks. : ) I was just testing that and found the sexy--whip connection. Hah. So Sexy really IS the wrong way to go for Beastmaster, that was just one more clear warning sign I was too noobish to catch. ; )

Although maybe it would've given me a bonus to Dominate a male cyclops. .P

The real issue is aggravation, so there are certain poweful artifacts a beastmaster should avoid.
