Re: Animal Kingdom Sports Gambling & Management II

Nice! Here's some preseason analysis to spice things up:

Adam's preseason rankings:
1) oxes
2) otters
3) coyotes
4) echidnas
5) hamsters
6) camels
7) manatees
8) capybaras

No idea how accurate those are! It will be interesting to see what happens. :)

Ovyron walked over and handed the coins to the man who was watching him. The man took the coins without a word. He tilted his head slightly, and peered into Ovyron's eyes for a second. Then he nodded, reached into his pocket, and flipped Ovyron a small onyx disc. "Payment," the man said s...

Re: Tel Balok II: Pregame discussion

I thought we went over this! I even updated your skills to say that you could magically move your sideburns! Silly me. :P Ovyron bent over and picked up the purse at his feet. He opened and counted over a dozen coins. At least a couple of them were gold. When he looks up, Dan is nowhere to be seen.
