the posters I always wonder about are Dragonslayer (drove me up the fraggin' wall!), Lone Gunman (so much fun - Clockwork reminds me of him) and Buzz (seriously drek-irritating - the other half of flashbacks from Clockwork).  Oh, and Glitterfrost . . . whether or not this was Hualpa.

Agreed on Dragonslayer - I wanted to know what happened to him so I could point and laugh.

Of course, you know he'd just ignore you, or (if he was having a bad day) add you on the supposed draconic assassination list . . . come to think of it, wonder what that bunch of loonies were doing about drakes . . .

See, Skeptic is the one that got me. I mean, I *am* a skeptic and a believer at the same time. I just didn't get how he couldn't accept any of the rumors going on when he lived in a world of dragons and AI's...

You remember the Iraqi Minister for Public Information? The guy who yelled "We will behead them, they are already rotting on the battlefield, there is but a single tank in the city and it is stuck!" while some Marines under cover of an Abrams tank were taking the plaza behind him? ;)

I've always loved Man-of-Many-Names, Fastjack, and Fatima. Clockwork's a little bi- well, he's got stances I do not respect.

Of course, none of the users stand up to the all-amazing power of Bung, the smart-aleck from SE2 and beyond. I miss Bung.

I believe he's still around.

And his newb cousin GnuB.

(What, you never realized that was Bung spelled backwards? ;))

 IIRC, one of the Jackpointers mentioned missing Dragonslayer and his loony comments.

 Reading one of the older sourcebooks, I was greatly amused when Hestaby flat-out replied "You are an idiot" to one of his rants.

 I miss Tomtom.  His Madagascar bit (with Captain Chaos booting him off at the end) was hilarious.

Maybe if we ask really nicely Jason & Co. will give us some updates on older Shadowland folks...

We need to get some Jackpoint/Shadowland Style threads going where the admins or writers feed us a little tidbit and we comment away on it. Who knows we may end up with our stuff inspiring the writers.

As much as I'd like that, I don't think it's gonna happen.

even if it was just one of us writing up a piece of speculation on events and having some fun it would be pretty cool.

Well, just asked Bull over on his U93 Biography thread, and he said to go for it. If you want to post, create a biography on his thread, then start a topic. If you got an article, go ahead and post it or attach it to the opening post. I'd stick to his recommendations though and if you start a Shadowland thread, put either [U93] (signifying the old-school date-time stamped forums) or [SEA] (signifying the new Jackpoint/ShadowSEA) style. Also keep to character you post a biography for, no one posting as Slamm-0! or Netcat (I'm not posting as FastJack).

Fun thread.  Ok, a few answers on my end...

1)  The Bull that posted to Shadowtech is technically not the same Bull as the "Best Ork Decker YOu Never Met".  I was playing Bull by that point, but Target: UCAS was my characters Debut as a Shadowtalker (I won a contest on the old ShadowRN mailing list, along with Spike, Granite, Fro (Adam Jury's original online handle), and one other person...  Kumquat maybe?  It COULD have been my character, I was playing when the book came out.  And I always claimed that it was me. :)

2)  A fair number of characters were based on real characters.  Talon was Steve Kenson.  Josie Cruise was Jon Szeto's.  Bull was mine.  Slamm-O was Fred Hoopers.  Winterhawk belonged to one of the assistant Developers.  Pistons was Elissa Carey.  Half the characters I ever put into anything I wrote were either some of my secondary characters, friends characters, or friends online Nicknames.  But, a lot of time, they were either jokes, or just random names pulled out for fun.  I know in one of the SOTA books, Jon Szeto used a bunch of GI Joe names to fill in for merc posters.

3)  An "In Character" chat was done once, during one of the Live Chats that CGL did for a while.  I'd actually love to see something like that done again, or do up something like that on the forums here.

4)  I'm going to end up using some of the Season 4 Missions Conatcts and NPCs in the UV93 threads for shits and giggles, and I wouldn't be surprised to see some talk about events going on in Missions pop up there.
