I was typing at one o'clock in the morning after a 9 hour bus journey, and having gone to bed at midnight the night before.

Thank you, I don't know how to code. I can barely type commands in my shell.

Yep. I wrote "antropomorphic" instead of "anthropomorphic".

And I made several grammatical errors.

On the Programing topic I present to you a very Realistic "Thread Must Die" Simulator in DarkBasic
Code:
Thread$ = "Alive"

Input "Thread Must Die, yes?> ",answer$
If answer$ = "Yes"
Thread$= "Dead"
Print "Die Thread Die!"
else Print "Whatever."
endif
Print "The Thread is ",Thread$
Wait Key
End
Its still in the Beta Stages, although if the Negotiations with the publisher go well then this could be hitting the Store Shelves Q1 08!

Which white haired drow? Naal'Suul Val'Baeldrobbaen is the only drow I ever had as an avatar, as far as I remember. Do you mean my previous one? That was Susan StoHelit, the granddaughter of Death.

The whole family of Naal has dyed their hair black, except for her brother, who went for the Zebra look for his hair.



She's my favourite Drowtales Character, apart from Kiel'ndia Vel'Vloz'Ress.
She's a bit scary, but also neither really good nor bad. She's a sad character.

I absolutely loved that most recent image of her.

I might switch my avatar to my other favourite, Kiel'ndia though. She's at least as insane as I am (he whole clan is).

(she's talking to the camera/the reader, who happen to be her imaginary friend).

Ah, that's Faen. The mismatched eyes run in her clan. They redid the chapters, so I have to find a nice picture of her yet. They only just got to her in the recent chapter remakes (this is also the first appearance of Naal'Suul in the chapter remakes, but she appeared in the later chapters a lot, while Faen doesn't, as she has fled to the surface world.)


I might use her as my avatar in the future too.

The other girl, putting her hand on Naal's shoulder is Chrystel, by the way. She's a daughter of the ruling clan, hence the crown. She, Naal'Suul and Kiel'Ndia are friends. They're all tainted, though Naal'Suul was not tainted intentionally it was an accident, as you can read). Her clan has the "Val" prefix, which indicates that the members of the clan usually don't receive a taint. Faen's clan is also a "Val" clan. Chrystel's (the ruling clan) and Kiel'Ndia's clan are both "Vel" clans, which means the members intentionally receive a demonic taint. Chrystel also has red eyes. That's a side effect of becoming tainted by a demon seed.

Originally the ruling clan did not taint their members. But the daughters of the queen got themselves tainted when that process first started to be practiced. They commited treason against their mother and queen, possibly killing her (that story is still being told). The queen was a first generation Drow, not having the characteristic charcoal skin, but rather brownish skin of the southern surface elves that became the Drow.

Kiel's clan was actually a group of outcasts in a way or other, all commoners. It's a whole story of how they became accepted as a noble clan, which is told in the beginning of chapter 11. It has to do with the habit of a small insane girl that has to wear a mask because otherwise she would chew on her fingers until they were bloody, and that likes dolls. She turns people into living dolls.

Awww, it can't be that bad. After all, I've used Naal-chan as my avatar before.

The new avatar sort of has that "I just ate a really spicy burrito" look.


Just kidding.
