You have just entered room "valarguildmeetingplace."
VardaValar1 has entered the room.
VardaValar1: Aiya Golden One :-)
ArPharazonV: Aiya!
VardaValar1: Any Arien sighting?
ArPharazonV: Looks like she's on bnet, but not any specific game. Just the client.
VardaValar1: Aragorn asked for an invite to the chat room
ArPharazonV: Doesn't look like I have him in my buddylist.
AriehnV has entered the room.
AriehnV: aiya all :_
VardaValar1: Aiya Arien :-)
ArPharazonV: Aiya!
VardaValar1: I'm trying to invite Aragorn. Did you ask him along?
AriehnV: sorry was playing in Lotro
VardaValar1: yay for playing in LotRO!
VardaValar1: You can do both. :-)
AriehnV: indeed :-D
AriehnV: on the runekeeper atm
VardaValar1: fun :-)
VardaValar1: He has Aim for Windows
VardaValar1: Not the one showing on the Legacies list of
VardaValar1: He says he'll try to reinstall
AriehnV: ah that is the version with the difficulties joining group chats isnt it
VardaValar1: Probably. Not fair.
VardaValar1: We used to be able to jump in with all sorts of versions.
ArPharazonV: Still can with most.
VardaValar1: Maybe because I don't have a really new one to be backwards compatible?
Aragorn has entered the room.
VardaValar1: Huzzah!
ArPharazonV: Ah, email showing.
VardaValar1: You switched that fast? :-)
VardaValar1: Aiya Aragorn :-)
Aragorn: Yea, fast installation. Hello!
Aragorn: Yea I need to change screen name :-)
VardaValar1: I see him as Aragorn now. Maybe because that's the note I made to identify him.
VardaValar1: Under Full Name, I put Aragorn.
Aragorn: Alright.
VardaValar1: Let us know if you changed it. We use ArPharazon's transcript as the cleanest copy.
VardaValar1: Mine is full of tables, weird looking.
ArPharazonV: Might want to change his name on the transcript then.
VardaValar1: Can you change it on yours, Phar?
VardaValar1: I'll do that, aye.
Aragorn: Should be changed now.
AriehnV: i ve saved him as Aragorn
VardaValar1: Cool. What do you see now, Phar?
AriehnV: you are in my contact list as Aragorn V now
ArPharazonV: Still see him as his email.
ArPharazonV: Let's see if we can change that..
VardaValar1: Let us know when you're ready for the experiment, Phar
ArPharazonV: I'm trying to alter it, but I don't think this version will let me. Might be stuck for the session at least.
ArPharazonV: Maybe if he relogs, or I relog...
ArPharazonV: You probably just have to alter it on the transcript.
VardaValar1: Okie dokie. It worked on mine, but it's a different version.
ArPharazonV: Yep.

VardaValar1: Elen sila lumenn' omentielvo!
VardaValar1: Membership:
PallandoValar has entered the room.
VardaValar1: Eonwe sent out the Games Site Mass Update for 2015.
VardaValar1: Aiya Pallando :-)
ArPharazonV: Aiya Pallando!
AriehnV: Aiya Palando
PallandoValar: Aiya
PallandoValar: Running a fleet, sorry, not really going to be here. :-)
AriehnV: yep got his email
AriehnV: and good luck Pallando
VardaValar1: Go for it, Pallando!
VardaValar1: Sauron is sick or he'd pop into Eve with you.
ArPharazonV: Avast!
VardaValar1: Aragorn, grats on your new computer. :-)
VardaValar1: He may be able to game again with that new rig.
Aragorn: Yea, and now that finished studying aswell :-)
VardaValar1: What were you studying?
VardaValar1: if it's ok to mention
ArPharazonV: You think he's studying for the secret service?
VardaValar1: Ah hah!
VardaValar1: I think he's also typing in side windows, makes it tough. :-)
Aragorn: haha
Aragorn: Yea. I was :-)
Aragorn: I studied Environmental Engineering
Aragorn: now I work as an energyconsultat in Malmö, Sweden.
Aragorn: consultant*
VardaValar1: Very good! Congratulations!
ArPharazonV: Grats :-)
Aragorn: Thanks!
AriehnV: nice one
Aragorn has left the room.
VardaValar1: ooops
ArPharazonV: Probably pressed esc?
VardaValar1: maybe, or the x
Aragorn has entered the room.
VardaValar1: There you go. :-)
Aragorn: hehe, thanks.
VardaValar1: One trick is to put your own name on your buddy list so you can invite yourself to the Group Chat.
Aragorn: Ah, nice one.
VardaValar1: The name of the chat has default numbers. Instead type Valar Guild Meetingplace
VardaValar1: It comes out as one word :-)
Aragorn: alright
VardaValar1: In other news, Melkor showed up in LotRO the other day. :-) Ran all his characters through.
VardaValar1: He commented that he might have to make a new character to practice since so many changes have occurred since he was last on.
VardaValar1: Hamson has been working evenings, reason we haven't seen him lately.
VardaValar1: He's ok. :-)
VardaValar1: Any other Membership news?
VardaValar1: oh, the Games Site Mass Update, if answered, doubles as your yearly guild contact to keep you in Active status.
ArPharazonV: Fladrif told me he contacted you about moving back to Europe?
VardaValar1: For folks reading this that didn't get the letter, since some emails changed, we have a link to a copy:
VardaValar1: Not yet, Phar.
VardaValar1: Only through you.
ArPharazonV: Ah, he said something about an email.
VardaValar1: Eonwe's maybe?
ArPharazonV: Could be. I'll need to ask.
VardaValar1: Hmm, don't see Flad on my Contacts list.
VardaValar1: No cc sent to me.
VardaValar1: Oh, reminds me. Ugluk says hi, and wants to stay with us.
VardaValar1: He has trouble making contact because he's a sailor, gone for long stretches of time.
VardaValar1: Yes, the same sailor that Ulmo brought in long ago who served under him on his icebreaker back then.
VardaValar1: Arveleg, sadly, said he would bow out of the guild. Just can't give it any time.
VardaValar1: Once a year email isn't all that much, guys. ;-)
VardaValar1: But we will still have his presence from his great articles and Timeline.
ArPharazonV: Hmm, always sad to see someone go.
VardaValar1: Aye
ArPharazonV: But hey, if you don't have internet for a year ;-)
VardaValar1: Often enough, they return later.
VardaValar1: Happens.
ArPharazonV: That's good.
VardaValar1: I put someone down as Inactive, doesn't mean they're dropped exactly.
VardaValar1: But the name, if asked for by a new member, becomes available.
VardaValar1: Other members can report you as still active too, but that's pushing your luck.
VardaValar1: We used to all be in the same game, then same games. Now we're spread out and need some help keeping in contact.
VardaValar1: The forum is good too.
VardaValar1: Ok, any other Membership news?

VardaValar1: Web:
VardaValar1: Tolkien Site:
VardaValar1: The Bohemian Weasel-(T) emails back and forth with me, very nice. And we're Facebook friends.
VardaValar1: She has new art for us:
VardaValar1: Annatar and Celebrimbor at the Forge
VardaValar1: It went on the Sauron page, plus a new page was made for Celebrimbor. These are great to hook into the Encyclopedia.
VardaValar1: So here it is on the new Celebrimbor page:
ArPharazonV: He looks about to hit Celebrimbor on the head. Foreshadowing?
VardaValar1: For her Sauron art page (these are all on our site):
VardaValar1: In a way, he is indeed hitting him on the head.
VardaValar1: Sauron was not yet known to have gone over to Morgoth.
VardaValar1: He taught the elves a lot that he learned from Aule as his Maia, including Rings
VardaValar1: and the Rings all just happned to have backdoor programs built into them for the One Ring to come into.
ArPharazonV: But Eonwe knew.
ArPharazonV: He just didn't share the knowledge?
VardaValar1: Eonwe was in Valinor.
VardaValar1: Celebrimbor was in Middle-earth in Eregion.
VardaValar1: Tough being out of touch.
ArPharazonV: Yeah, but Eonwe *was* in Middle-earth at the end of the War of Wrath. You'd think he might share some knowledge to people remaining behind.
VardaValar1: Annatar looked like such a nice fella.
VardaValar1: Interesting thought, Phar. What was Eonwe doing though?
VardaValar1: He was in the middle of running a war.
VardaValar1: Sauron was supposed to have been rendered no longer a problem.
VardaValar1: And he was being so helpful..
VardaValar1: Guess we needed to make some really good cells in the Halls of Mandos with no Get out of jail card.
ArPharazonV: hehe
VardaValar1: Some Ar-Pharazon guy and his buddies had something like that, just wasn't in Mandos' Halls. :-)
VardaValar1: and still there.
ArPharazonV: Alas.
VardaValar1: If you checked out the Sauron page, it has the Melkor images too, most of them.
VardaValar1: The images in these sections are put in chronologically to help with a sense of story.
VardaValar1: In other Web news,

VardaValar1: The Games Site has new news on gaming that we'll go to shortly, and
VardaValar1: Eonwe updated the games with whatever info anyone emailed him for the GSMU. :-)
VardaValar1: I sent my info in today, so it appears that I don't play LotRO. It should show up in a day or two. :-)
VardaValar1: This helps us get together in whatever games we play.
VardaValar1: Whenever possible, we make a user/friend channel named Valar
VardaValar1: in any game.
VardaValar1: How do you folks feel about your emails showiing on the Membership page? I've heard some have been getting used, even though scrambled, to send spam.
ArPharazonV: Still got one in WoW. But I think Arien doesn't have any alliance players on the server anymore that aren't already in my guild :-)
VardaValar1: How about that Arien? And you can talk in AIM. :-)
ArPharazonV: Oh, I don't mind. Gmail's quite good at spamfiltering.
VardaValar1: Agreed. :-)
VardaValar1: The idea is to help us get together with other members, and be able to send things like the GSMU. We try not to hit people with daily yakkity yak.
ArPharazonV: We've got social media for that.
VardaValar1: Right. And games.
VardaValar1: Speaking of...
ArPharazonV: Such a transition!

VardaValar1: Gaming News!
VardaValar1: World of WarCraft:
VardaValar1: Check out this week's hotfixes.

VardaValar1: Diablo 3:
VardaValar1: There was a Reddit Q&A recently, and they've posted the transcript for those interested.
VardaValar1: (I was in D3 earlier today.)
VardaValar1: Heroes of the Storm:
ArPharazonV: (so was I!)
VardaValar1: (In D3, saw three other Valarites on)

VardaValar1: Heroes of the Storm:
VardaValar1: New patch this week, with a new hero. Check out the patch notes. This patch includes new reporting options and a silence penalty so check out the blog on that as well.

VardaValar1: LotRO:
VardaValar1: Farmer's Faire is still running. Reminds me, the farmers among us need to run over to that for the last half of the farmer's quest.
VardaValar1: And we found we can pick up Supreme Essences in Big Battles if we do well enough to earn a platinum box and the Random Number Generator is feeling generous.
VardaValar1: This can even be solo! Chances are about as good as in a 12-man.

VardaValar1: Back to D3
VardaValar1: Arien mentioned a bug.
AriehnV: with a seasonal hero when i level it and i get to Act II to the point where Zoltan Kulle turns up .. u know the Haradri who was executed and dismembered you ve got to get the head to resurrect him rather get the inormation
AriehnV: when he turns up and starts speaking the client freezes
AriehnV: does anyone else have problems with that|?
AriehnV: Just after they leave Arcanum and get to that Desert where he has his archivws
ArPharazonV: Sorry, I pretty much spend my season playing bounties instead of quests.
AriehnV: well you got to level before u can do that dont you?
ArPharazonV: No. You only have to go through story mode *once*, on one character, ever.
ArPharazonV: I did that on the first season.
AriehnV: but with this bug its pretty much impossible
AriehnV: really?
ArPharazonV: Yep.
AriehnV: Oh man ..
AriehnV: but you can only play a seasonal character from the start no?
ArPharazonV: Yes, but because you unlocked bounties earlier, you can start that character with bounties.
ArPharazonV: The adventure mode unlock is independent from game mode. Pretty much the only thing that is.
VardaValar1: How many here would like to use Ventrilo in their gaming in Valar branches? Most of us here seem pretty good at typing.
ArPharazonV: Even if I had a microphone, I always prefer typing. Even when I'm in the same room ;-)
AriehnV: how are u suppiosed to fulfill season journey goals?
ArPharazonV: Just do what it says, I suppose?
ArPharazonV: Works for me.
ArPharazonV: You need 5 bounties? Do 5 bounties. You need a rift? Complete a rift. You gotta level up? Go collect experience.
AriehnV: *confusied*
ArPharazonV: Am I missing something? :-)
AriehnV: hm .. get the blacksmith to level 5 , jeweller as well and enchanter .. gem an item and there are specific goals in specific Acts
AriehnV: defeat certain bosses and so on
ArPharazonV: Yes. You can access those through adventure/bounty mode.
ArPharazonV: It's rather less linear than the story mode, and you can teleport pretty much all over the world with no problems.
AriehnV: ooookay
AriehnV: never understood that .. i always thought u had to start season characters through the story
ArPharazonV: Nah.
AriehnV: always learn something new here :-)
ArPharazonV: You just need to level stuff again, gather recipes again, collect fresh gear and gold...
ArPharazonV: Paragon..
AriehnV: all right .. continue .. i feel daft now ...
VardaValar1: aye, we were chatting in a side window
Aragorn: Alright, I have to go to bed. Its past midnight here in Sweden and I have work tomorrow :-)
ArPharazonV: Namarie!
AriehnV: Namarie Aragorn :-)

Aragorn: It was nice to see you again, and hopefully I will stary playing some this winter.
Aragorn: D3, WoW or LoTRO
Aragorn: ;-)

VardaValar1: Sleep well and sleep fast. :-) Namarie!
AriehnV: looking forward to it :-D
AriehnV: rest well
Aragorn: Good night
VardaValar1: 5:30pm here in CST, 6:30 in Valar time of Eastern.
Aragorn has left the room.
VardaValar1: ok, got his info updated on the Membership page.
VardaValar1: Any other business, comments, suggestions? Something left out?
VardaValar1: Still see Helm around?
ArPharazonV: Oh one more gaming thing.
VardaValar1: Feel free.

ArPharazonV: Starcraft II: Legacy of the Void release date announced, with intro movie.
ArPharazonV: I'll dig up the US version for you.
VardaValar1: Thanks
ArPharazonV: Not showing up as a link for me, but it usually doesn't without a http...
AriehnV: oh he moved to Inverness Varda
VardaValar1: Helm?
AriehnV: i think its fairly safe to write him out of the member list
VardaValar1: Still game?
VardaValar1: oh, sorry to hear.
AriehnV: I havent seen him recently but he found a new girl he is with now
VardaValar1: Just moving shouldn't force one out of gaming, maybe a long pause.
VardaValar1: ahh, nice for him. :-)
AriehnV: and they are having family plans , so he transferred to a store there
VardaValar1: He's still more current than quite a few on the Membership page. Good for 2015.
VardaValar1: unless he states he wants to leave the guild.
VardaValar1: His name is still his to the end of this year at least.
AriehnV: thats cool :0
VardaValar1: *drags him to LotRO too*
VardaValar1: Have to get him on Landroval.
AriehnV: I dont see him anymore at work as it is .. and i didnt see him as he left since i was in hospital then
AriehnV: so its a bit unlucky
VardaValar1: How is the lag for you from Scotland on Landroval?
VardaValar1: You might get to see him again gaming.
AriehnV: I might
AriehnV: i ll talk to him when i see him#
AriehnV: and i dont get any lag at all
VardaValar1: Hey, that's a really good sign for keeping our gang together!
VardaValar1: Email maybe?
VardaValar1: and now....

VardaValar1: Tolkien!
VardaValar1: I was surprised looking back that one of the most dramatic moments hardly has any space in the LotR.
VardaValar1: FotR "A Knife in the Dark"
VardaValar1: Frodo had just been stabbed on Weathertop. This is all from his point of view.
VardaValar1: Quote:

VardaValar1: Even as he swooned he caught, as through a swirling mist, a glimpse of Strider leaping out of the darkness with a flaming brand of wood in either hand.

ArPharazonV: Pyromaniaaaaa...
VardaValar1: That's the whole bit showing Aragorn's fight.
VardaValar1: hehe
VardaValar1: The whole thing!
VardaValar1: The rest is left to our imagination, after having built up the atmosphere and scariness of it all.
VardaValar1: Huge hero moment.
ArPharazonV: Well, we can gather from the result that he won.
VardaValar1: True. :-)
ArPharazonV: And that none of the nazgul actually.. you know.. died.
VardaValar1: Almost any other writer would have played that up a good bit more.
VardaValar1: Ran them off and saved Frodo.
VardaValar1: Already dead, aye. :-)
ArPharazonV: I don't know. It seems more like a movie scene than a book scene.
VardaValar1: Sometimes we can really see JRRT's artist's eye in a scene, as if in a painted moment.
ArPharazonV: For Tolkien, anyway. He tended to skip over most of the individual thrusts and parries. Most detailed I can remember is the duel between Fingolfin and Morgoth, and even that was pretty brief.
VardaValar1: He set that up so well that it had immense impact and atmosphere. All that was needed.
VardaValar1: He'd lived through graphic already, didn't seem inclined to tell it.
VardaValar1: Sometimes it feels as if we spend a lot of time slogging through the terrain, the same way the Fellowship felt.
VardaValar1: Want a long quote where we have impact?
ArPharazonV: Oh yes. He was good with atmosphere and environment.
VardaValar1: Three paragraphs
ArPharazonV: Hmm?
VardaValar1: True!
VardaValar1: I had one more - just takes a bit to type. If I were organized (am sometimes), it would be already written out for copy/past.
VardaValar1: with typos cleaned up.
VardaValar1: Would someone else like to give a Tolkien Moment?
AriehnV: hmmm trying to thing
AriehnV: think even]
AriehnV: but my typing is bad already whoaa
VardaValar1: I can give one, but nice to see someone else's.
VardaValar1: You should've seen the typos I was correcting just for that short one earlier, hehe.
AriehnV: I ve got one .. if u like .. it has a lose connection with fighting .. very lose
AriehnV: Kind of strife music .. ye know #
VardaValar1: Go ahead.
VardaValar1: Doesn't have to be fighting.
AriehnV: It is in fact after the third time of the music of the Ainur
AriehnV: Eru's comment on what has been woven

AriehnV: "Then Illuvatar spoke, and he said: "Mighty are the Ainur, and mightiest among them all is Melkor, but that he may know and all the Ainur, that I am Illuvatar , those things that ye have sung , I willl show them forth, that ye may see what ye have done. And thou , Melkor, shalt see that no theme may be played that hath not its uttermost source in me, nor can anyone alter the music in my despite. For he that attempteth this shall prove but mine instrument in the devising of things more wonderful, which he himself hath not imagined" .. quote finish

ArPharazonV: "Whatever happens, I'm taking the credit."
VardaValar1: heh
VardaValar1: Thank you, Arien. Good one.
VardaValar1: Eru, the uttermost source.
VardaValar1: Good luck keeping Morgoth humble.
VardaValar1: Folks, It's getting very late for you. Shall we switch to After-meeting and let the personal reports be told?
VardaValar1: Unless Phar has a Tolkien Moment?
ArPharazonV: Hmmno, sorry.
ArPharazonV: Not good with moments.
VardaValar1: *The hammer whangs!*

VardaValar1: After-meeting:
VardaValar1: Free chat!
VardaValar1: Any time you're ready, Phar. :-)

ArPharazonV: Righto! I'll give you one flashgame for my personal gaming this week, because it's been a bit poor pickings. But this one's fun.
ArPharazonV: A somewhat new defense game, where you can place and upgrade archers and mages in towers, and have to stop hordes of undead, while also throwing traps around.

ArPharazonV: For Heroes of the Storm.. nothing new much. I'm almost at the maximum level, 40, not that it matters much for me. I haven't tried the new hero Rexxar yet, though he looks interesting. I'll probably buy him when Muradin, my current Warcraft Warrior class, is level 10.

ArPharazonV: Hearthstone: Not much news either! Still building experience on all the classes. Came across a few of the new quests, like winning 3 times with a single specific class.

ArPharazonV: Diablo 3: More play with my seasonal wizard. She's level 33 now. Started putting a bunch of gems in the gear, and gotten some new fun abilities like Teleport, Familiar and Disintegrate. Kinda makes me feel like Cyclops from the X-men :-) Currently leaning to a build that regenerates a lot of arcane power, and uses it for powerful aoe and disintegrate to kill everything in front of me. Seems effective so far.

ArPharazonV: WoW: More progress!
ArPharazonV: Gotten the legendary draenic sea chart, and should have all the 33 Tomes of Chaos needed by next week. Hoping to have the legendary ring on sunday.
ArPharazonV: We've also succeeded in killing the last raidboss on normal difficulty, Archimonde. Killed him twice, once on tuesday, and once tonight in the new reset. Still takes a few tries, but we're getting him under control.
AriehnV: Very good ! congratulations :-D
ArPharazonV: I've gotten a new pet from a rare mission, the Cinder Pup, and the third pet I wanted from Erris the Collector who can show up in your garrison, and give you a reward bag if you defeat her pets. So I don't need to seek her out anymore.
ArPharazonV: And I've also finished getting all the wild pets up to the Talador zone. Next one will be Spires of Arak.
ArPharazonV: Thanks :-)
AriehnV: nice one :-) i got given the cinder pup from someone who got it twice
ArPharazonV: Ah! Neat.
AriehnV: I myself progressed a bit too with the legendary ring quest to the naval / tome stage
ArPharazonV: Oh, and I got the King of the Monsters achievement, which I'd been after for a few months, because we finally located the last rare mob in Lost Veil Anzu.
ArPharazonV: Ah, grats :-)
AriehnV: i tortured myself through that stupid fortress
ArPharazonV: I'm at 26 tomes now. But still 5 bosses to kill for this reset, and then I'll LFR on saturday until it's done.
ArPharazonV: Oh?
AriehnV: yeah where u got to stealth through and assasinate the mobs on the way
AriehnV: needed quite a few tries
PallandoValar: Heeeey
PallandoValar: I live
ArPharazonV: Ah, that one. Can be difficult, yes.
ArPharazonV: The method I'd advise is just to kill everything you see, while making sure none of the others are watching.
AriehnV: and I also managed to get the Garrison campaign achievement and the pet from that and it catapulted my Rep with Voljin Headhunters to Reverred and welcome back , Pallando :-)
VardaValar1: Aiyata Pallando :-)
AriehnV: so working on the annoying rare hunt rep .. whats it Order of the Awakeened and the Saberstalkers
AriehnV: for Draenor flying
ArPharazonV: Ah, yes. Not working on rep yet myself. Want to do the wild pet capturing first.
ArPharazonV: Oh, I did get myself a new follower this week, Abu'gar, after collecting all his fishing gear around Nagrand.
AriehnV: else i ve been levelling my Alliance Warlock in Pharis guild to level 95 now with two areas done :-)
ArPharazonV: And he's the first follower I ever got that upgraded to epic on recruitment, despite being uncommon by default.
ArPharazonV: He was also the last follower remaining that is not level 100 at recruitment, so when I get more it'll mean less levelling needed for them.
AriehnV: ((postscript: yes i got Garona now as follower , but i already have 25 active .. plea to blizz .. give us 5 more follower slots at least :D))
ArPharazonV: hehe, you can deactivate followers you don't want, you know ;-)
ArPharazonV: Garona's usually good to keep active, because she has a significantly higher success chance on any mission she does. Quite useful.
AriehnV: very good
ArPharazonV: That's the benefit of being Legendary quality I suppose.
ArPharazonV: Well, that's my gaming news for this week!

ArPharazonV: Next time I'll hopefully have the Ring to announce :-)
VardaValar1: the Ring?
ArPharazonV: the legendary one.
VardaValar1: Not.. the Two Ring!?
ArPharazonV: No, the Four Ring.
VardaValar1: o ok. *whew*
ArPharazonV: And you already made that joke last week.
VardaValar1: Poor overused joke.

AriehnV: very good :-) and mine .. well i ve been a bit in Eve and luckily the war with Bruce's corporation has been invalidated due to too few kils heh , but we have another going life tomorrow and another one still going on for a few days at least
AriehnV: and of course een gaming around in LotrO a fair bit :-)
VardaValar1: You and Bruce couldn't join the same Corps?
VardaValar1: Yay LotRO!
VardaValar1: Like say, Pallando's?
ArPharazonV: Everyone into the same corporation!
AriehnV: well the thing is that he is a pvp pilot and flies for a Mercenary corp
AriehnV: thats nothing for me .. i like mission running and mining ops with a bit of additional thrill and just a good community#
AriehnV: with nice people to chat to
AriehnV: I am not terribly skilled yet to do high end missions or operations of any kind
ArPharazonV: And the merc corps doesn't need people who run missions and mine? :-)
AriehnV: not when they are mostly hunting for wartargets and just trading the loot from the poor pilots' ship they destroy :-)
ArPharazonV: Ahh.
VardaValar1: Pirates!
AriehnV: yep sort of
ArPharazonV: Sounds like it.
VardaValar1: Sounds like the definition of pirates.
VardaValar1: Except I guess they pick certain groups to pirate.
ArPharazonV: Possibly. Or just anything that comes across their way.
AriehnV: yeah they pick wartargets i guess or get asked by others to declar war on a certain group
ArPharazonV: Right. Mercenary.
