Shut up, take my money and aeroplanes and give me a mini trebuchet! A mini trebuchet for my ca$tle!

Definitely trebuchet, or small camera on cart of strings. Forgetting to check the site with how much I watch the thread. All-consuming.

Backshadowing. Everything can be black. Keeps the options open; more fun.

Been lurking all week and finally made an account. Cool as a trebuchet is, does it mean the end?

Is the whole thing a coding metaphor?

    I have some in my mouth = runtime errors
    projectiles = testing.

My prediction is the castle will be destroyed looking very much like the first frame and will loop?
Entropy...

This reminds me of when I was a kid, I'd make buildings out of Lego and set them at the bottom of our stairs.

Then I'd sit at the top of the stairs, raining Lego projectiles down upon them and enjoying the random destruction (and occasionally being told off by my parents for making so much noise!)

Ah, good times.

So, not a sand cannon. But maybe a trebuchet is more gooder (typed that way, not substituted).

That is very clever. A continuous loop would be very logical as a way to keep the 'animation' visible forever without the need to create content for 100 years.

Who says it needs to loop seemlessly? Maybe one day it will just reset back to frame 1, no matter what state the last frame was in.

I am a proponent of loop theory, think it's the best way to go. This might also be the first evidence against erosion theory, although I think I would have preferred that.

Trebuchet...called it.

His best bet is a sally forth some lightly armored knights with sword, pitch and torches to put an end to that thing.

Or join in the fun. Trebuchets are as much fun as a potato cannon and don't require an accelerant. :)

I reckon the subs don't work on this small sequence of programmed instructions unless you quote. I reckon.


They also affect the preview, but not the final posting, at least for some substitutions*.

Edit: * subject to future change, E&OE, YMMV, batteries not included.

Some bodily fluids can’t be black... Some are quite clear...

Well, they can sometimes be black, but that's usually a sign you need to see a doctor.

Christ.. :shock: I sleep for 16NPs and have a 4NP meeting at work, and the thread is now 45 more pages deep and has a new title.

Now to spend the rest of my work day catching up on the wiki.

Oh and: HECK YEAH CATAPULT! :twisted: "The wall will fall. Tis what walls in tales do."

Randall must be watching the forums for inspiration. We've got flags and a trebuchet now. If they adopt a new religion, then I think we have conclusive proof.
