The Unofficially Official Kerberos Mug Thread

Post by U.E.D.C. » Thu Mar 11, 2010 9:37 pm

Basicly a collection of Mec-isims that one would put on their mug

Heres the one that started it all (just the mug thing and only in my opinion)
Because its a heartless and cruel universe?


Oh and credit is due to handsome pete
would you like us to get you a mug that says "Because its a heartless and cruel universe?". hmm .. , (insert; chin rubbing) i think i'd like to get one for myself.

And then theres:
always been more fond of "disdain" as opposed to "snark".


And in reference to
Yes, but "Disdainful Mug" just doesn't have the same ring to it.
there is this:
depends whose head you rap it off of


Who could forget the classic
Yes, well don't let the reality door hit you in the ass on your way out."



And to rap things up
But in the end, while I find this mug idea cute, it should probably get its own topic as I would hate anyone very serious to think this was some sort of extended mockery.
Not really a mug contender, just the thought that made me make this tread. :thumbsup:

Heya

I'll make a start and then append as I find more... :lol:

...kids...no respect for the classic...

That's my story and I am stickin to it!

Let the answer to this... be....still under consideration.

And while SotS 2 will not cook you dinner sadly, it WILL chew your food for you and place it in your mouth, saving you much muscle and concentration effort.

...strategically...well...the only unbeatable so far...is me!

I got yer after action report right here!

as soon as we can say you will know...

I am always in favour of a crazy Qeubecois Starship.

We are still looking for the "make game" button in Microsoft Project.

Thog work...many centuries....Thog work out theoretical physics breakthrough...Thog go to shiny lights in sky to thumpa thumpa bug men!!!

AI questions in gaming are kind of like asking a politician if he has believes in family values.

sigh...never mind

ten demerits for avatar for arguing with God

ahh the evil me from Earth T(ypo). Quick! Get the Lavender Kryptonite!

closing a game is hard work kids...even harder than schooooooool!

because...you have entered the magical realm of difference between art and practise!

Star Trek is fun but its not the bible in all things science fiction...One cannot be incorrect in the science of made up stuff.

Yeah I think the evil folks have figured out that when they build a new frontier and fund its development, the frontier eventually revolts and kicks their ass....sigh I was hoping they wouldn't figure out the trick for one more iteration.

well fine...if you are going to say please and all...

Ummm seeing how this isnt really a democracy...

next week on mountains out of molehills...

now what kind of mean person would I be to allow a force into the universe that would destroy entire star systems...specially one that was out of the players control.

I love it when someone tells ME what goes on in SotS...I find it so educational.

Guys....when "I" say it's a disadvantaged position, trust me. It's fricken disadvantaged.

Ahem...just to weigh in for a moment.

kludgy would axe murder me if I actually changed lines of code.

AS for plundering wildly alien tech...ask the guys at area 51, sometimes its real difficult.

ok...everyone gets their "zerg professor" badge...can we get back on track now?

Often I am surprised by section combos, which is odd considering I designed most of the section myself and thought I had figured out all the cool combos already.

Sadly the average gamer can not be trusted with multiplayer graffiti...hell, they can't even be trusted to name themselves something civilized half the time.

it happens.

...ummmmm YES! you decide which if all of your questions this answers.

Bzzzzzt! Wrong! But thanks for playing...! PLease accept these lovely parting gifts. Now shall we move on to Double Jeopardy where the scores can really change?!

read a book!

and stops for a moment to kick...ass over the "real book" comment.

yes, yes...I know you are all very special

the SotS obeys "fire only at my target" and "fire at will (wheaton)" commands.

well that would be telling now wouldn't it?

its nice that a cool moment is so instantly lost in minutia though.

you forgot....MASS HYSTERIA!!!!!

actually it was a hint to go watch ghostbusters again.

probability...ZERO. (says something mean about star trek)

ok...enough one-liners...back to work in here!

"mec's time is like spandex. Its a privilege. Not a right." or something very close to that.


But that wasn't his quote, I'm not sure it applies to this thread, awesome though it may be.

It's a reference to Thog from Order of the Stick, a Hulkspeaking Psychopatic Manchild barbarian of low intelligence who...
...Well, it's for comedic purposes. Lets just say that Thog could have uttered that sentence.

:bangdesk:
You don't want facts, you don't want dissenting opinions, you want sheep who will blindly follow your lead. You want people to respond with "this can't be said enough!" and "you couldn't be more right." and "THIS!" You don't give a shit about opinions that aren't exactly the same as your own. You even blame the moderates for being part of the problem. If they aren't loudly and actively supporting your ideals, you tell them they're the enemy. "If you're not with us, you're against us!" You shout down reasonable debate, denigrate your opposition and deliberately twist language into a dishonest version of itself that dilutes the very issues you claim to represent and makes honest discourse impossible. You are not fighting for freedom. You are the oppressor. You are not struggling against iniquity. You are concerned only with enhancing the status, position and power of yourself and others like you at the expense of anyone who won't follow your lead.

Seeing these makes me wonder about the convos that spawned them. Some of my favs are where someone is talking to a KP person about how "Sots does this" or "that," and they have noooo idea they are talking to one of the designers.

But that would require a coffee mug set and not just a mug...

Lesson? Don't get cocky. And Murphy's law is a bitch.

by "kicking back just post release" you mean lying face down unconscious from lack of sleep and food.

hmmm well whoever wrote that is wrong! Good thing it wasn't me.

philistine

yutz!

I have been kicking around a few idea for area effect defences...perhaps in SotS II when the system specs can be brought up another notch.

personally I think the music of more personal SF like space trader games should be the blues. There a certain "screwed if you do, screwed if you don't" aspect of a hard life in space that really isn't served by any other form of music.

hmmm...being alone in a one man scout ship would probably have me listening to "New York state of mind"

You can save the game during any strategic turn, be it turn 1 or turn 100! And return to it minutes days or years later with the same group of chums or an entirely different group of randy buggers! Its all up to you!

You can either have instant responses or you can have perfect spelling...not both...see it says here right at the bottom of the menu

get off my lawn, ya lil punk!
cue old guy kicking lil farts off the board.

and the magic Mec Ball says....

jeff owes me cash for the tranqs.

next week on "missing the point" we will be looking at...

cough*ungrateful ummm not nice thngs*cough

should I punch him for that? Hmm...too early in the morning to decide

oy, my poor typing fingers!

hey..everyone knows...when humans invent a AI that controls high performance machinery, it needs a red eye that bounces back and forthe. They teach you that in Comp Science 250: Basic of AI theory.

if only there were some sort of ....compu oracle! where you could type in a reference like "doombot" and some sort of binary djinn would lead you by the hand to the information you sought! Oh to live in such a magikal time!!!

greedy whelps!...you know the rules...first you analyse, discuss and question...THEN you get another morsel!!!

I think perhaps the point of the story can be boiled down to,
"Pretentious dicks often make pretentious, flawed games."

you haven't see me in pink chiffon yet...if its good enough for J Edgar Hoover!

if we told you...it just wouldn't seem very special anymore, would it?

I am not sure saying "stop being screwed" is useful in a tech discussion, thanks.

he knows latin and political sophistries but not WW2...almost the perfect fan.

And isn't "fluff-bastard" some sort of porno term?
...sorry I just thought a fluff-bastard was a really demanding fluffer.

really? Yay Me! it was a logical extension from my usual "wonder-fracken-ful"

the secret ingredient is....nuclear waste!...and love of course.

....the answer to your question is Kludgy.

who wants 70 meg save games?!!!!! yayyyyy!

why dont you guys ever ask about pie? or making flowers and giving them to other players...always so mean...

sigh...we need more comic nerds in our fan base.

...the galaxy isnt just dangerous...its without mercy...and very random. To survive you must sieze control of your destiny because blind luck goes both way.

"And he has been playing 24/7 since release and is now a level 46 lunatic covered in guild loot"

weighs in with an "excuse frickin me"?

...they would be worse than the cat in ALIEN...cause we all know whose side it was on

...I would have chewed your ass about that even after a month of sleep. Ahhhh sleep.

you want to simulate the E3 booth babe experience?...

Step 1) Go to your bad side of town....
step 2) find prostitute who REALLY hates men...especially geeky too skinny/too fat men AND who has personal space issues.
Step 3) give her 50 dollars to let you put your arm around her or push boobies against your shoulder.
step 4) at moment when her disgust is most evident, have buddies take your picture.
step 5) remain blissfully ignorant of how much she loathes you, herself and her life and look at picture longingly till next E3
====

would not have called a character "Rex Chance" in about a billion years....

Actually I kind of interpreted it as the speaking your language VERY LOUD and slowly and then thinking the foreigners are jerks cause they don't understand ya

====
Very well...let it be known that each and everyone of you that purchases the game on release day...will receive at the same moment...THE DEMO!!! And it will be an extra special demo that will take you through the entire game! *, **


* Offer void in the presence of carbon based lifeforms

It was only after a day of staring at first phrase I wrote "discovered the secrets of FTL flight" and thinking "F***! That is just an ugly, inelegant, said a thousand times elsewhere sentence!"

...if I had an infinite number of code monkeys...sure....but all they do is keep trying to code "to be or not to be".

I always wanted to put in a cheat code into a game that when you activate it a screen comes up and says "Yay! Yay! You win! Your mother must be so proud. Game Over."

with their foreign clicky clack stinky fart lanuage and working for low wages! They just dont value life like we do!

the raining men will be fired from the special Indian, Cop, Cowboy, Leather Dude and Construction Worker ships. And they will be both Roman AND Greek.

the current set of miracles are already taking up the entire Kerberos Overharvest bar.

I am not even going to get into this one...that was just so not even true that it broke my brain.

...actually your wife wrote and asked specifically for us NOT to release until a week after your anniversary...

deal with uncertainty folks! Almost like a real leader or somethin!

hmmm if only we had a roster of star names for the stars BETWEEN race zones....oh wait! We do!...Me am so Smart...S..M..R..T!

We will have to go through what pics we do have and edit out the ones of Castewar buried in booth babes and then see if there are any appropriate for this topic.

possibly he is easily distracted by shiny things...you should forgive him after a beating, of course.

as long as you are wearing pants...everything is cool.

...we at kerberos try not to release self aware software on an unwitting world.

Oh sorry...

I will always be available to bite some netwit on the ass.

...My scripts are full of cheese...

you guys have a certain essence of "buzzkill" about you sometimes

Its ok to date yourself...just dont marry yourself.

so let me get this straight...I mention the dolphin/marine biologist stuff and I am a bad person. Ms. Dembo points out the S/m perks of tarka/human relations and you all go running up with your tips on her first "Tarka Gone Wild" video!

And if this were a democracy...that would mean someting.

the people of Latveria, and this forum, cry out for strong leadership.

word leaks that isnt approved and it gets tracked back to you?...we get to sell your kidneys and liver.

I dunno...call me old fashioned but I prefer to drop large rocks from orbit till the surface is mostly red hot maaaaaag-ma!

Who are you, ..., to be so IMPORTANT that you cannot even process the idea that you came off looking like a dick? Hell I wrassle with that every day. The odd time when I am not doing it on purpose, I can be counted on to say. "Oops, didn't mean it that way, my bad."

We tried the marketing line..."....where weakness means you get a big, fluffy hug! Yes you do! Who needs a hug? You dooooooo!" But lighthouse shot it down. Hillary Clinton loved it though.

There are, as yet, no known intelligent NON-spacefaring races in the SotS universe.

ummm... Going out of your way to hear the deaths screams of someone and then laughing...kinda sends a certain msg to said person.



back to topic, alien studs...

Here are the ones that grabbed me (not all of them Mecron):

Mecron's response:

I wonder if it got put on a shirt...? Certainly seems a bit much for a mug.

The Humans they lay all smug in their beds
(While visions of sige drivers ran through their heads)

But deep in the void

Ok, that's a bit big for a mug, I have seen shirts like this though...

`Twas brillig, and the slithy toves
Did gyre and gimble in the wabe:
All mimsy were the borogoves,
And the mome raths outgrabe.

"Beware the Zuul slaversl, my son!
The jaws that bite, the claws that catch!
Beware the Morrigi bird, and shun
The frumious Tarkas that snatch!"

He took his dreadnaught sword in hand:
Long time the manxome foe he sought --
So rested he by the moon of saturn,
And stood awhile in thought.

And, as in uffish thought he stood,
The Zuul slave ship, with eyes of flame,
Came whiffling through the asteroid field,
And burbled as it came!

One, two! One, two! And through and through
The light emitters went snicker-snack!
He left it dead, and with its head
He went galumphing back.

"And, hast thou slain the Zuul slaver?
Come to my arms, my beamish boy!
O frabjous day! Callooh! Callay!'
He chortled in his joy.

`Twas brillig, and the slithy toves
Did gyre and gimble in the wabe;
All mimsy were the borogoves,
And the mome raths outgrabe.

.


At first they came sneaking, small in their numbers,
Fast and evasive, left questions, not answers.
Our colonies ravaged, our people went missing,
We couldn't ignore that we really were slipping.
So we searched high and low, we planned and waited
And Lo, a sneaky weasel was finally baited.

And then they came in great numbers, hosts nevernding,
so we banded together and fought unrelenting.
The hivers, as always, moved slow but steady,
their armor was thick, their blows very heavy.
The Tarka charged head on, all weapons blastin',
never showing their tales, never running - just fighting.
In and out of view, the Liir ships flickered,
They danced and doged, their beamy death delivered.
The humans where everywhere and kept on attacking,
their ships fast and sturdy, constatnly flanking.
Despite all the guns they packed and their number,
the wesael ships imploded, one by one, they went under.

We pounded the weasles and kept them running,
when we saw in the skies something new and quite charming.
They were no angels or princes, or respected elders,
nor dragons or queens, even tough they resembled.
Nay, they were birds, with powers of illusion,
With thin, snake-like bodies, and drones using fusion.
"Children of the Dust" they called as they descended
like a Murder of Crows, for they were offended...
