    Just my general stuff.
  3. 402. When one of the reasons you want to join Facebook is to get all the WoT jokes. 403. When the other is to talk to DMers.
  4. Thanks ASG, I found it while browsing, and "Wookiee Love Machine" made me laugh out loud. I just coloured it in! *I'll stop spamming now*
  5. Mr Ollivander has something to say on this: I think it is clear that we can expect great things from you [Mr Potter]. After all, He-Who-Must-Not-Be-Named [Generic bad guy, for those that didn't know/guess] did great things. Terrible! Yes. But great.
  6. Aren't the Tower Guard un-bonded Warders? I thought they were.... Or at least they go through the same training, with Warders. So I don't think they'd arrest us. Anyway, that's like claiming all the Children of the Light are Darkfriends. Misinformed, not evil.
  7. Charlemagne: 3 Hawkwood: 5 Hawkwood is streaking ahead with this one. I'll give it another couple of hours, then we'll move on!
  8. Well, I would have to call that a narrow win for the Russian. Next up, we have the Holy Roman Emperor, versus an English Mercenary, famous for his ability. Charlemagne (742-814) He was an Emperor and King who brought most of Western and Central Europe under his reign by a variety of means including military conquest. But he is not famous for just this. He was also a main force in something called the Carolingian Renaissance which changed much of Europe by bringing about a new monetary system, educational reform and a renaissance of the arts including military arts and the art of siege. He is often considered to be the father of what is now modern Europe. Charles enjoys hunting and fighting huge military wars, he also enjoys hot baths on cold winter evenings and wine tasting.... John Hawkwood (died 1394)-English Little is known about the early years of John Hawkwood’s life, only that he was born an English commoner before he rose to prominence as a mercenary, serving the English in the Hundred Years War. He became the leader of the White Company of mercenaries, who, under his command, gained a reputation as being reliable and efficient soldiers. He sold his sword to the highest bidder, which was often a pricey competition as his fame and renowned battlefield prowess. It is unknown when and by whom he was knighted. A little bit of a scoundrel, Hawkwood enjoys the lavish things in life and relaxing while people pay him not to fight them.
  9. Wow, Davrick is there as a witch too! Look, at the bottom! We have a lot of warder-witches....
  10. *almost drowns, pulls himself to the edge and just gets his head above water* Ha! I don't float, therefore I am not a witch! *floats into the middle of the river* damn.
  11. Well, we already established that she's a duck. same difference, isn't it?
  12. lolguy has such a keen witchdar..... he must be a witch too! *throws chuckles in the river* HE FLOATS! HE FLOATS!
  13. Wallace moved quickly forward, and slammed Molay with the pommel of his claymore. The Templar went down quickly, knocked unconscious. It wasn't much of a fight. The next two combatants entered the field: Alexander Nevsky and El Cid El Cid El Cid (1043-1099) was a Castilian knight whose real name was Rodrigo Diaz de Vivar. He was called El Cid by the Moors whom he fought against most of his life. The Spanish national hero, however, didn’t aways fight against the Muslim rulers of medieval Spain. Occasionally, he fought for them as well. El Cid’s greatest achievement was capturing the kingdom-city of Valencia (1094) from the Moors. He formally ruled the city in the name of Alfonso VI but he was more or less independent ruler. Shortly after his death, his widow Jimena surrendered Valencia to the Almoravids. He died from natural causes. Enjoys playing both sides of the field, and sunbathing. Alexander Nevsky Alexander Nevsky (c.1220-1263), Prince of Novgorod and Grand Prince of Vladimir is the most celebrated medieval Russian military leader. He assumed the name Nevsky after he defeated the Swedes on the Neva River in 1240 and repulsed the threat of an invasion of Russia from the north. Two years later, he also decisively defeated the Livonian Brothers of the Sword (a branch of the Teutonic Order) and destroyed most of their forces in the Battle of the Ice. But he couldn’t prevent the Mongol invasion of Rus’ from the east. Thanks to his outstanding political skills, however, he managed to gain considerable concessions from the Mongols and make the Mongol yoke less intolerable. After his death in 1263, Alexander Nevsky came to be regarded as the national hero, while the Russian Orthodox Church canonized him for his support to the Church. Nevsky enjoys skiing, snowboarding and fencing. The two knights, the only representatives of their countries in this tournament, sized each other up, getting a feel for the moves of the other.
  14. Molay: 0 Wallace: 5 Taking an early lead, Wallace forces Molay back under the force of his blows, egged on by the crowd. This promised to be a short fight. ((I'll change to the next round in about 4 hours if there isn't a significant change of heart in voting... :p)
