Long silence
Yes indeed, nothing is happening here.
Seems like we ran out of discussions except for battle reports. Oh well...

So I guess the handful of people here are getting somewhat bored or something.

We still have to see some updated templates(I think). Oh well just trying to start somekind of conversation.

DK_Viceroy 09-30-2004 11:21 PM

Looks like the effects of my return have worn off I stopped responding to most htreads when vostok created that Geonosian Thread.

swphreak 10-01-2004 08:08 AM

Well... I guess we could all get Carbon Freezed and await DMUK's confirmation and some information on "SWGB2."

At least we know most of us is here from the weekly games.

Admiral Vostok 10-01-2004 01:25 PM

Yes, things have gotten so quiet here even I am only visiting every second day.

Funny how Viceroy has to blame everything on me :rolleyes: I can't wait for Episode III to come out so I can prove his assumptions about the Geonosians incorrect.

DK_Viceroy 10-01-2004 01:45 PM

Careful Now Vostok I know lot's of things I can throw in your face now especially your penchant for doing Geonosian Voice Over's

I can barely Contain myself laughing some of this stuff is so laughable


I'd be happy to do most of the voice work, except that everyone might end up sounding similar... ooh! I can even do Geonosian voices!
I never would have though you so Arrogant vostok how hillarious

I Laugh At He Who Thinks He Can DO A Geonosian Voice Over Without Being Castrated In The Process Or Being Turned Into An Iguana

DarthMaulUK 10-01-2004 02:35 PM

I will be there Sunday for reporting for battle!

I'm sure Michael Winslow can do it.

Darth Windu 10-01-2004 08:15 PM

Well i've been pretty busy with uni for the past few weeks, especially this week with four assignments due.

Because of that i really havent been around here a great deal, though i have edited my SWGB2 template slightly and will probably change it more now i'm on holidays for a week.

DK_Viceroy 10-02-2004 12:43 AM

Well personally I think that the Geonosian voices the ones like the Geonosian Drones in the game sound like an Iguana for some reason. I don't think those were made by something human.

FroZticles 10-02-2004 02:14 AM

Maybe because Geonosians are not human.

Iguanas don't sounds like that at all....

DK_Viceroy 10-02-2004 03:20 AM

I don't know why but it sounds like an Iguana to me

lukeiamyourdad 10-02-2004 05:50 AM

They don't sound like reptiles at all.

Admiral Vostok 10-02-2004 11:22 AM

Why do you think I can't do a Geonosian voice over? :confused: If Ben Burtt can do it, I don't see why I can't. Plus you've never even met me, how would you know what I can and cannot do?

Why is it that nearly all of Viceroy's posts recently have been mocking me? :mad:

DK_Viceroy 10-02-2004 12:17 PM

I'm trying to bring back some sort of conversation since most topics seem to arise out of arguments.

Admiral Vostok 10-02-2004 02:10 PM

Well since no conversation has arisen from your arguing-for-the-sake-of-arguing I suggest a new strategy is needed.

DK_Viceroy 10-02-2004 04:01 PM

I'm presently working on a new idea that's tied in with some of the old ones but won't have anything to do with rediculous Template discussion because that started the decline in the first place.

FroZticles 10-02-2004 11:55 PM

The decline was bound to happen sooner or later. The game on the zone is dead. The puzzlebox era which was short lived, added to the arguments. I think LA rejected his ideas and he is hiding in a darkened room, never to see daylight again.

DK_Viceroy 10-03-2004 03:50 AM

Everything about Puzzlebox was correct and if you all remeber I'd even said as much while he was still amongst us.

The good thing is we no longer have that arrogant little sod in our midst.

Every game has it's peaks and troughs this is just a low period as the new film nears completion and publicity rises unless SWGB 2 has made it's apperance by then people will buy SWGB

Nairb Notneb 10-03-2004 06:05 AM

Ok, I'm back. Miss me? Doesn't matter. Four hurricanes and a lot of overtime. I haven't heard your "iguana" voices yet for the Geonosians, but I have had two iguanas as pets in my lifetime, and they never made a peep. They are good swimmers though. Oh, their tails make a crack sound when they whip you with them.

lukeiamyourdad 10-03-2004 06:23 AM

Yes but we're still stuck with you.


DK_Viceroy 10-03-2004 07:05 AM

How could anyone even joke that i'm anything like Pezzlebex since i'm not arrogant and I don't consider everyone else a lower life form like Pezzle did.

Maybe he's lying in a hospital freezer somewhere with a white sheet over him and a tag tied to his big toe.

:bdroid2: We Can Only Hope :bdroid2:

Admiral Vostok 10-03-2004 09:20 AM

On the subject of Geonosians and Iguanas, having played as the Confederacy in our games yesterday I think I know what you mean. The Geonosian Drones certainly make funny sounds that although I've never heard an Iguana I can see why you might imagine them sounding like that. I was referring to Geonosian Warriors and Geonosian Fighters, who make more human sounds. These are the Geonosians I claim to be able to impersonate, not the more animalistic grunts and squawks of the Geonosian Drones.

Just clearing that up for my number one critic Viceroy.

DK_Viceroy 10-03-2004 09:30 AM

I think it would be very easy to duplicate the Geonosian fighter sounds which for some very strange reason sounds like Jooku Chags Dooks which sounds more like dooku shags dogs no why would LA wants something like that in i wonder.

Vostok your worth Ctriquing because You seem very knowledgable about EU as much as you claim to be knowledgable about the films

and it seems like this forum has had the kiss of life administeredd to it.

AS always my presence ensures friendly and in some cases not so freindly debates or in some cases just down right arguing.

Admiral Vostok 10-03-2004 09:35 AM

So you no longer believe you would

Laugh At He Who Thinks He Can DO A Geonosian Voice Over Without Being Castrated In The Process Or Being Turned Into An Iguana

I am no where near as knowledgable on EU as I am on the films as I'm sure you are aware. However the fact remains that to be Lord of the Purists, you must have some understanding of that which you are rejecting.

DK_Viceroy 10-03-2004 09:39 AM


Though why on earth would LA put such daft words in the mouthes of Geonosian Pilots and Warriors

Admiral Vostok 10-03-2004 10:38 AM

I think it's your imagination.

DK_Viceroy 10-03-2004 10:39 AM

If it's my imagination then it will rain Duck eggs tommorow all over the world.

Admiral Vostok 10-03-2004 10:43 AM

Well I've never heard Geonosians saying "Dooku shags dogs", so I think you're just hearing what isn't really there. As a student of Linguistics I can tell you this is a common phenomenon.

DK_Viceroy 10-03-2004 10:47 AM

I'll find a recodring of it.

Is their ANYTHING you don't CLAIM to be a scholar of:liam

Nairb Notneb 10-03-2004 11:49 AM

I say you make a recording of yourself doing the Geo voices and post it here. It would be a great thread.

DK_Viceroy 10-03-2004 12:24 PM

I don't claim to tb ethe expert in doing them vostok however does.

Nairb Notneb 10-03-2004 12:54 PM

That's ok, maybe we should all do our own impressions and post them?

Admiral Vostok 10-03-2004 07:18 PM

I am a Scholar of Star Wars. That means I know just about everything about it. Knowledge of Star Wars is the only thing I claim to be an expert of.

I am a Student of Film and Television, Linguistics and Drama. This means I've studied them at length in at University. I don't claim to be an expert but I do know more than the average Joe.

I am a Professional Software Developer. This means it is my job to design, write and implement software. As such I have a pretty good idea of how software companies work, though again I'm not an expert.

I hope that clears up what I am and am not an expert of.

FroZticles 10-03-2004 07:28 PM

With all these University courses I wonder where you found the time to become a Star Wars Scholar. :p

Nairb Notneb 10-05-2004 03:07 AM

Vostok you are a very busy person. I wish I was an expert at something. I know more about Star Wars than the average Joe, but I am not an expert. I can hold my own in these forums though and I have given most folks here good run for their proverbial money. I still have much to learn, but I have found that I am full of surprises. Sometimes, I've even amazed myself.

Do you guys ever do that? Sneak in lines from Star Wars into a conversation just to see if the person notices? I do it to my wife and kids all of the time and it drives them nuts.

Anyway, sorry for getting sidetracked there. Being an "expert" and well versed in a subject are two very different tings but are both to be commended I think. I there are fields of study that one enjoys then I say spend time in them and pursue them and share your knowledge with others, that's why you make the time for those areas.

Good job Vostok, way to go.

Besides, it's not bragging if it's the truth.

FroZticles 10-05-2004 05:13 AM

I can safely say I never make geonosian noises or sneak SW lines into my sentences. If I did I would be worried ;)

swphreak 10-05-2004 08:52 AM

I think Vostok should clarify about what Star Wars he knows. I'm very sure I know more EU than he does. Just like he knows basically everything about the movies that I don't know.

And don't start with this EU isn't Star Wars crap. It's not "canon" but it is in the chronology... or something.

DK_Viceroy 10-05-2004 09:54 AM

Well actually in the case of Episode 3 EU will be vital because i've quoted it somewhere else but i'll give the genral gist not only has George aprroved of a new wave of EU he's given it it's blessing because He is restricted to blending EP 1 and 2 to 4,5 and 6 so he can't put in a whole lot about the clone wars so the Novels need to fill in that gap as well as explain why General Grevious is such a fearsome enemy.

Vostok do you claim to know most things in there subjects and star wars i'm wondering?

Admiral Vostok 10-05-2004 11:30 AM

Phreak: Naturally as a Purist when I say I am an expert on Star Wars I am talking about the movies, the only true Star Wars. To me there is Star Wars and Star Wars EU, to others there is Star Wars Movies and Star Wars EU. So to clarify, I'm an expert on Star Wars Movies.

Nairb: Indeed I'm always using Star Wars lines in conversation. When I haven't done something for a while I'll say "I've not done that since, oh, before you were born" which usually raises the eyebrows of whoever I'm talking to.


Vostok do you claim to know most things in there subjects and star wars i'm wondering?
Please rephrase into a grammatically correct sentence so I can understand what you are asking.

DK_Viceroy 10-05-2004 12:09 PM

Vostok do you claim to know most things in the subjects which you claim to be a scholar of?

I am after all curious An answer to that would certainly help me undertsand you more from a philosophical view and make our matches very interesting.
