[Phalla] WWI - Pointy Hat Guys Win!

edited February 2008 in Critical Failures
Welcome to my World War I - A West Side Story Musical by Steven Sondheim and produced by Mel Brooks, critically acclaimed actor, producer and director Phalla.

"Bent double, like old beggars under sacks,
Knock-kneed, coughing like hags, we cursed through sludge,
Till on the haunting flares we turned our backs
And towards our distant rest began to trudge.
Men marched asleep. Many had lost their boots
But limped on, blood-shod. All went lame; all blind;
Drunk with fatigue; deaf even to the hoots
Of disappointed shells that dropped behind.

GAS! Gas! Quick, boys!-- An ecstasy of fumbling,
Fitting the clumsy helmets just in time;
But someone still was yelling out and stumbling
And floundering like a man in fire or lime.--
Dim, through the misty panes and thick green light
As under a green sea, I saw him drowning.

In all my dreams, before my helpless sight,
He plunges at me, guttering, choking, drowning.

If in some smothering dreams you too could pace
Behind the wagon that we flung him in,
And watch the white eyes writhing in his face,
His hanging face, like a devil's sick of sin;
If you could hear, at every jolt, the blood
Come gargling from the froth-corrupted lungs,
Obscene as cancer, bitter as the cud
Of vile, incurable sores on innocent tongues,--
My friend, you would not tell with such high zest
To children ardent for some desperate glory,
The old Lie: Dulce et decorum est
Pro patria mori."
-Wilfred Owen

    Jdark, no trenchfoot mechanics, and you aren't able to be Gabriel Gates in this one. Sorry.

    You can sign up if you want CJ, you don't know anything that would give you an unfair advantage.

    Durax: Game will begin on monday, so you've got a good amount of time before sign-ups close.

    Coral Springs... I was just up in Sunrise at the new Ikea. You are too close to me. Stop invading my personal space.

    You should join the game and just act as a strategist for teams while on the field. That could be very enjoyable.

    I'll be helping PL1 with some of the background stuff so I won't be able to play.

    Which is kind of a bummer, I could've had the chance to bum rush DA or Aldo or jdarksun in this game if I would have been playing!

    It would've resulted in my early demise, but a guy can dream right?

    Coconut Creek, actually. But I work literally across the street from CJ's house.

    That Ikea has nothing to offer you unless you live in an apartment or are a midget.

    Nothing at all. I don't really hold grudges, I just think it'd be fun to compete against you in a game like this. jdarksun's really mean to me, so I have to do the same and I could've given DA another gift for the secret santa thing. A virtual knife in the back!

    I'm in Miami. The Ikea was like a theme park for furniture. It was so weird, following the gray arrows in the floor from one section to the next. They had really cheap flower pots, which was excellent. I also got a good, cheap shelf for my kitchen, but neglected to notice that they had not included the hardware to actually affix the shelf to the wall. Hmmph.

    I wonder if there's any difference between a 'Freelance' and a 'Mercenary' Strategist.

    I figure the latter gets paid better.

    They will clear out the trenches like you won't believe. Very useful for pushing your people towards the enemy and pushing the enemy into the sights of your guns.
