    Space Raptor was having a terrible day. Having put itself its physical shell in to hibernation so that its mind could explore higher dimensions, it suddenly woke to discover itself infested with a tiny filthy race of primitive beings calling themselves KAALDARITH.

    The name had to be shouted apparently. Everything they said had to be shouted. His biometallic arteries echoed with their shouts. Space Raptor was getting a headache.

    The little idiots had caused him to crash in to a planet. They'd pulled apart his nervous system, hacked his ganglia, he was trapped, helpless in his own body.

    And now warning bells were screaming at him, some sort of flood of radiation. If only he could get his external sensors back on line.

    At least they seemed to be killing each other off now. Maybe the problem would sort itself out if he was just patient for a few short decades. In the meantime, he would see if he couldn't get the gene-factories back on line. A well designed virus or two, and Space Raptor would have silence again, and time to repair its physical shell.

    THIS. IS. GRIMFAR.

    This document will be what my entire GRIMFAR universe is based upon! Fabulous!

    The guards series are pretty much the greatest books ever written.

    Night Watch, Guards! Guards!, Going Postal, Equal Rites, and Monstrous Regiment are my top favorites. I rather like Lords and Ladies and Thief of Time as well.

    Never read Equal Rites, Lords and Ladies, or Monstrous Regiment, the other four are incredible though, as is Making Money and The Truth. Vetinari taking nobby and colon off in Jingo is pretty great, and Thud! and the Fifth Elephant have some of the most epic endings of any book ever.

    He does not make Carrot epic enough any more though, he's made him kind of weaker through each book, which I dislike as I always thought he was the superhuman hero parody.

    How [strike]have I[/strike] has the good captain deteriorated? If anything, he's grown wiser in the ways of Ankh-Morpork.

    I love the way he has been made more intricate and intelligent definitely, the really subtle hints of how he seems to be playing everyone else as idiots with a great act covering his real strength really makes him an interesting character. But having

    Weird names are fine. You lot are weirdly conservative about some things.

    Ugly names are less good, and Pilot Inspektor is pretty ugly, I'd say.

    Weird names are memorable. If your name is Steve or Dave or Sarah or Emma I have a hard time remembering who you are.

    I figure I could take a bear.

    You have a name! Your name does not become a joke when combined with your last name!

    My name is completely made up.

    Ishboo. Isla Bonita. Yashla. Yishla. Yizzla. I could go on. They couldn't even make rhymes to mock me in elementary school.

    I had a substitute teacher who wouldn't believe me when I told her my name really was Yhsla. She thought it was a typo and insistent on calling me Ashly, then sent me to the principal's office when I wouldn't respond to Ashly.

    At least Pilot is reasonable for a boy's name. Unusual, but at least it's a real word, even with the Inspektor surname it's not that unusual. :P

    Emma is a nice name. Nice and dull.

    I'm not 'murican. I'm not sure I've ever drunk Mountain Dew. I saw some once, it looked like it was for cleaning drains.

    My daughter is named after the real and proper Dew.

    Nicknames are fair game, they can be anything. A proper cognomen can be whatever.

    I was going to suggest we do it multiplayer, and until we run into something that presents a challenge, split up and run two missions at a time.

    But then how would names ever be created if they had been regulated to 'real names'?
