    :bowdown: AlanH, first off, thanks for listing us as team T'dr'duzk b'hazg t't . You are truly Eldine's champion in this mortal realm.

    However, one omission, somehow MatrixTheKitty isn't on our team list. I'm wondering if he forgot to post an official sign up post. I'll PM him to check. If he is on, then we would only need one, but we won't complain if we take both if Eldine so chooseth :D

    He's in the sign-up thread. I recall typing his name in, but the dwarves obviously swallowed it on the way to the database. now added manually. The apostrophes are still beating the system, but I'll get them under control, you see if I don't!

    As soon as we have agreement on the team allocations. Don't want people starting to discuss team confidential information when we might still need to swap players.

    I have transferred the unassigned players to the teams I listed above. If there are no objections to the team list in 24 hours, I'll open the team threads then.

    Hmmm... was it the Aussie Dwarf, or the Irish Dwarf? My bet it was both :eek:

    First, as the at-this-moment self-nominated leader of Team T'dr'duzk b'hazg t't, I would like to say welcome, dima42, and welcome, Earthling!

    Unless you don't want to play with us, in which case, may Eldine smite you.

    I for one accept the extra team members, and note that our team now includes:

    A cat
    Two dwarves
    A paranoid chemist-in-training (Me!)
    A physics teacher
    An Earthling
    And whatever neil would like to characterize himself as. Heck, dima and Earthling, feel free to change the descriptions I made of you as well... dima's I got from his profile page and Earthling's from the name. And whatever you choose, I think we're in for a wild ride!

    I guess it's fate. Really, I was *this* close to just saying sometime in the past couple of days "I'll join the dwarven team anyway, they could use players and it'd be a great experience" but I was curious when things would get going otherwise. But hey, I'm onboard anyway. Thanks guys. I'm also really rusty/haven't read much Pratchett but if the great Turtle has anything to say about it we'll take this one.

    I'm fine with any description, or should be the guy who's never played dwarf fortress yet but should if I had the time ;(

    Baruk Khazad! Khazad ai-menu!

    Also whoever's the "cat" currently on our team needs to get the his necessary quantum prerequisites in before the game starts ;)

    Edit: by the way, it's a good thing you didn't catch me when I had my elven supremecist avatar/theme. Pretty shortly I'm thinking of switching to a combined promo for the Q/new buddies of T'dr'duzk b'hazg t't though, sounds great.

    ChokoMisfits looks good (subject to ozbenno being made to spend the whole game lurking in a bleak, dark corner, after a "friendly fire" incident with a Nuke in the last SGOTM ;) :lol: ).

    Thanks very much AlanH, and I promise to vote for you guys on May 6th!! :p

    Can't wait for this to start. And the day after my second forum birthday. And I will have a shiny new Deity title to go along with it.

    Like all true dwarfs I'm on a rat diet (but only if you pass the ketchup), so it wasn't me.

    @Earthling, not a bother on the elven thing, we've lots of iron to cure that problem.

    In general, I'm raring to go now
    Spoiler :
    even if I manage to fubar the whole thing.

    Room for another he they want to join. 8-9 would be ideal as players always drop out for real life stuff.
