Quote:

I don't suppose that there would be any chance of opening a Triurat game thread. It seems that there is this pestiferous race that badly needs chastizing in the proper forum. Not of course that I.........would Ever............ stoop to abusing a friend Smile

Love and Kisses (and Tweety Birds)

Hetzer (The Grakle)


(The Grakle claim to be an avian race)

From: Petroid:
So now you want to take your abuse from ICQ to this forum? As if having 74k resources per turn at 2467 isn't enough of an intimidation?

The Grakle destroyed one of our Space Docks and proceeded to bomb our colonists. When we finally scraped up a big enough fleet, we took their orbiting fleet out. Then they had the nerve to claim they were just visiting tourists! Mad

We made the observation that their 'visiting' tourists bodily wastes was doing a lot of damage to our planet. They replied that Hens do lay eggs.

We said that we understand that eggs can do a lot of damage when they fall from orbit, and we offered to build coops and roosts to house the Grakle people, as they are obviously a great food source.

Gentlebeings, I beg you, consider the nerve of this vile and violent Petroid tyrant known only as "Ron". A few harmless boatloads of tourists slaughtered to the last hatch-ling for the crime of littering? Can anyone reading this post justify such behavior? The very Universe must be recoiling in shock that a "civilized" race like the Petroids could stomach such a bloodthirsty monster as their leader.

But have no fear gentle readers. The author of this missive has sworn an oath of vengeance. Ron will be brought to justice and once apprehended will be given a swift and fair trial (we held it yesterday, he was found guilty). (Hey, it sounds fair to us)

As for his patently false attempt to elicit sympathy by painting us as the economic powerhouse in the game, I mean think about it. How can a race that has to build and operate everything with their beaks be expected to build an infrastructure of the size he claims? Confined to a scant handful of planets we may be but we will fight valiantly against this fiend in inhuman form.

We are a poor race, besieged and set upon by a Low and Treacherous Villain. If anyone out there might wish to aid the struggles of our poor fledglings, Resources may be donated to the "Help Save the Tweety-Bird" foundation at Triaurat.666.com.

Wha! 74K res was for 2466 am now at....(Hetzer) "yes" (What did you just say?) "but he was getting it wro........" "oh" ......
(sound of large, heavy foot tapping in slow, angry disapproval). "GROND, common"...."it was a mistake, anyone could do it".........."right?"....."Uh, Guys, I'd like to introduce you to my evil twin"....."Guys this is GROND"...."GROND, these are the guys"........."All-right Ron, you can stop giggling now"....(Hetzer looks nervously around at something that apparently only he can see)...."Now Grond, I've been good"......."well, mostly good anyway"......"common, we're family, right?"......"one more chance?"......."pleeze?"......

<We're sorry but due to the violent and bloody nature of the rest of the post and Ron's kind and sensitive nature, we felt it best to save Ron the trouble of having to edit it himself.> (see, I do to possess a scruple) (beams)

This is Hetzer, Furthest Flier of the Grakle speaking out to all the sentient species of the Universes. The unspeakable Evilness of that Malevolent creature known only as "Ron" has been revealed. By his own words I accuse him of the practice of Fowlabalism. No wonder we have never received a reply to our countless attempts to ransom our ill-fated tourists and merchant mariners. Penning our captives up in those rank smelly dungeons he so cavalierly calls "coops and roosts" is bad enough. But openly admitting to devouring them like some ravening brainless animal..........(shudders). You don't eat prisoners. You grip them tightly in your talons, fly as high as you can and let go so you can watch them scream and fall and go "SPLAT". Anybody knows that. It's shocking to see who they let into space these days.

Hetzer out

(ps: Ron that rumor of me breaking 81+K res in 2468 is simply not true, mere space vapor and those tales of 123 planets....come now the MM alone would crush a poor feeble-minded person like me, after all (see signature) ).

What?? Well, if not 'worn out', its sure to be dusty, minuscule, anemic, and probably inebriated considering where you got it from So squeaky clean that it's bound to be stiff and hard to use, as I'm sure it hasn't been used much in the past, and you're sure not going to use it much Smile

We never said we *eat* fowls; the eggs they lay is another matter. Your people are getting the best treatment, seed, roughage, etc that we can provide. In fact, they are liking it so much here that they're beginning to talk about the atrocious conditions back home: the overcrowding, being forced to eat the ground-up remains of the old and weak, etc. They say our coops are much nicer that the tiny ones they are forced to live in back home.

Ah, but the space vapor talks! It tells of 88k res now and 125 planets, 2 hour turns etc.... but *perhaps* our radio telescopes/scanners pick up more of Grakle 'secure' communications that you are privy to. Twisted Evil

AHHH, gentlebeings, look upon the true nature of this being known as Ron.

To acknowledge, nay to Boast of the devouring of countless innocent unborn fetuses, to Brag of how comfortable he makes his cells (notice how careful he was not to mention flying privileges). These are not the actions of a civilized being.

(I have seen a number of poor duped fools post threads thanking Ron for Autohost and the new Forum but what is the Forums true purpose? The reality is that Ron grows fat with the information posted here. He and not the SS is the ultimate spy-master. Like some fat bloated spider he sits in this carefully built and attractive web and waits for us to give him the information that he needs to carry out his wide ranging and nefarious schemes.)

Please help this lone voice of reason to fight the good fight. The Grakle are a poor race, unable to build factories and to reap the rewards of such progress. We are beset by two fiendish opponents who cannot stand to see such as our humble selves inhabiting even one small corner of the universe. Surely you can find it in you hearts to spare a scant handful of resources to stop the advance of such malign tyranny.

And we notice that you did not even attempt to refute the fact that the Grakle hold their people in slavery, and make them eat their own ground up dead, as reported by some Grakle Hens that we rescued (see previous post). 'Unborn fetuses'? You very well know that they would have to be fertilized by Grakle Heirarchy males before they could be called that. As we mercifully euthenize any GH males we find (they wouldn't be happy here anyway), all the eggs we collect are unfertilized.

We didn't mention flying privileges because we assumed that it was an inalienable right. Does the Grakle heirarchy not allow their people to fly? If not, then we'll send a message to all Grakle people "Shake off your chains, rouse and throw off the yoke of your oppressive Overlords! Come and live in good conditions with us, a friendly and supportive people. The only thing you need provide is unfertilized eggs. We provide clean wide roosts and coops, daily flying privileges, and plenty of good feed. We are not meat eaters so you needn't worry that we will eat you. Rise up and rebel against those who hold you in slavery!"

Why insult R.O.N? The Really Omnicient Network is a cluster of sentient computers working for the good of the Stars! community. R.O.N would rather put its energies into benefiting the community, not greedily hording knowledge as you seem to want to do.

Obviously Hetzer, you, a poor Public Relations employee, have been duped by your superiors, so you can hardly be called the "voice of reason" at this time. They have kept information from you. However, if you would only choose to believe the facts we have presented, you could become a real 'voice of reason' and help promote change in the Grakle Heirarchy.

(doddering, drain-bamaged old fart totters over to chalkboard, erases score and cedes the thread to R.O.N.)

Although, just so's youse don't worry that I'm getting soft or nothin' I do feel that I ought to mention (in an off hand, matter of fact sort of way) that as of last turn I was at 95K with 135 planets and 127 Tweety Birds. However, in the spirit of good sportsmanship and fair play that you have grown to know and loathe, hows about I promise not to build any more Tweety Birds? See what a good fie##....er.....friend I am (beams).

Ok. I'll accept your promise not to build any more Battleships at all, of any configuration Twisted Evil

Btw, was chatting with PeterY and he was confused about the 'no cap missiles' thing, and so we're wondering if its ok to put them on StarBases etc for defense? (seeing as you're so far ahead and all...)

Come to think of it, from the point of view of the poor buffer state caught between two super-powers, missiles (at least, for the Pegraks) would have their uses.

What??!! Shocked Mad (rumble, grumble....) At least it would make starbases better defended.

Considering your resource base, number of planets, etc, I think you should let both of us use missiles. It would perhaps actually give you a challenge in this game, which has been way too easy for you so far.

Easy! Easy he says. I've had to buy 3 new pairs of glasses since I started this game. Hours and Hours of MM. Here I am an aged, debilitated, sicque old man and he say Easy? (muted sound of violins in the distance)

(Randomly Obsessive Networker) I'd thought more of you than this.
Who's fault is it that I'm addicted to this stupid game? I could be quietly and happily blowing the heads off of other peoples Titans but No........

So, after months of study and testbedding you want to begrude this feeble, weak old man a little harmless thumping? I've already promised you that I'll make it quick (Well, semi-quick anyway). Remember to whom you am speaking. What would happen to my reputation if it got out that I was being fair (shudder) and reasonable? And don't think that it hasn't come to my attention that I share more than a personality trait or two will most Stars! players. You wouldn't want people to think badly of me after you've worked so hard to get me involved?

Agreed! (screechs) Agreed! (moans pitifully)

Hadn't thought that I exactly "agreed" to anything. I have no problem with your leaving weapons already built in place but having designed all of my ships to function under the "no cap ship missles thing" the thought of having to start all over again is ugly. Unless, of course, you wouldn't mind seeing Armageddon, SuperLatnium Parakeets?

You could also cede me the game (166 colonies, 112K res) and forbid me to take a -f Ca in the next one Smile

Hmm happy to play the game under the current (no missiles) rule until the alliance has taken enough major damage to make your success certain, rather than it simply being apparent. Next game I'll choose a different race, I think. AR's definitely a race for a long, slow-developing game; bad choice on my part.

Hah! Twisted Evil Calling your bluff there... AutoHost won't accept an upload bigger than 20k (or maybe 30k), much less than the 4 megabytes you mentioned. Rolling Eyes

So, are you ready to give up yet, due to lack of time to play your turns? Cool
