Will post in a bit. Looks like I need a deus ex machina for superthrawn's mouse. ))

or if thats what your talkinga bout (cus well i dont play deus ex))
Scar: Um...the morphing cube can't change someone's natural form. Also it only allows shapeshifting for two hours at a time (yes I ripped this off of Animorphs, for anyone who's read that series

Since NO ONE seems to know what a deus ex machina is, here's the Webster's Dictionary definition:

Quote:
de·us ex ma·chi·na
Pronunciation: 'dA-&s-"eks-'mä-ki-n&, -'ma-, -"nä; -m&-'shE-n&
Function: noun
Etymology: New Latin, a god from a machine, translation of Greek theos ek mEchanEs
1 : a god introduced by means of a crane in ancient Greek and Roman drama to decide the final outcome
2 : a person or thing (as in fiction or drama) that appears or is introduced suddenly and unexpectedly and provides a contrived solution to an apparently insoluble difficulty
(And let's try and keep discussion in the discussion thread. )
