FYI DD and Black won't join this competition. That means we will have only these entries. Either pick  entry or let this delay the campaign's progress. Your choice.

I'll keep this active so long that I or someone else creates that joke... Or I'll make another theme for that discussion... Which I really don't want.

Greetings,

I'll keep this active so long that I or someone else creates that joke...

Requests suits that situation. Competitions expire sooner or later, though preferably sooner.

Damanthe: Remember the mission where I was under your command?
Phodom: The one where we had to go on board that faulty flying contraption just to fight that damned dragon?
<starts flashback>
Random Guy: You want magic to fly, eh?
Phodom: Well, I didn't say anything yet!
Random Guy: I can cast a spell on you that can make you fly. Or I could, if I wasn't yanking your leg off. And by that, I mean shifting to a state of supinity and recumbence. Telling a porkie. But seriously, I don't think there are any such spells! The best magic user around here is Galeoth, so ask him! Maybe he'll be able to ask Mother Nature nicely to bend the law of gravity for you?
Damanthe: What's the law of gravity?
Random Guy: An anachronism.

Along the shore the cloud waves break,
The twin suns sink behind the lake,
The shadows lengthen
In Carcosa.

Strange is the night where black stars rise,
And strange moons circle through the skies,
But stranger still is
Lost Carcosa.

Songs that the Hyades shall sing,
Where flap the tatters of the King,
Must die unheard in
Dim Carcosa.

Song of my soul, my voice is dead,
Die thou, unsung, as tears unshed
Shall dry and die in
Lost Carcosa.

Also I forget to say that I won't do any "flashbacks". It would take too much time to create terrain for a cinematic. Also if the flashback has another type of terrain like the chapter where the flashback scene is given it will be very hard for me to create.

What about flashbacks that happened at the region where chapter 8 takes place?
Along the shore the cloud waves break,
The twin suns sink behind the lake,
The shadows lengthen
In Carcosa.

Strange is the night where black stars rise,
And strange moons circle through the skies,
But stranger still is
Lost Carcosa.

Songs that the Hyades shall sing,
Where flap the tatters of the King,
Must die unheard in
Dim Carcosa.

Song of my soul, my voice is dead,
Die thou, unsung, as tears unshed
Shall dry and die in
Lost Carcosa.

OK, I modified my entry.

Hello,

I lacked some info, I don't know who this Damanthe guy is, how he looks or his personality, neither the situation where they are at the cinematic, however, I tried.

Spoiler (hover to show)


By the way I think this competition should be just PMed to Aero instead of posting, if we all know the joke it won't be funny in-game...

Okay, so we got absolutely two different kind of jokes: Chimto's joke is little harder to understand, there are some words even I have to look from translator to completely understand what's going on. Then we have Witardo's joke which is about a kiss. Well I've to say that I didn't laugh both of them.

Well, I tried to do few weeks my text and I finally finished it. Even my result isn't actually a joke... It's just a funny little story from the past where Phodom and Damanthe are. I wonder if I should show it to you guys. However, this competition was a test run to try something different than normally.

After reading again all the entries I decided that Chimto's joke is the best one.

OK, then the credit list should be updated.
