    I ventured forth through the forest of lag to the mighty forum of which I loved. The large letters The Fall of Gnomeregan were posted on a sign in bright green letters, with the sign slightly tilted, almost falling off the signpost. I followed the signs until I discovered one that said sneak preview this way, I followed it to the edge of a cliff. The cliff stood above a large ravine. There was yet another sign posted near the edge, on this sign read, bridge coming soon. I could barely see some of the objects on the other side of the ravine, they taunted me so, espcially the man who had put up the misleading signs...

    What a literate way of scorning someone. Jetpack deserves some applause for that.

    I must admit, this text is very cool!

    But back to the topic: to not leave this thread blank, I'll try to post some "Sneak Peeks" tommorow. 8)

    The only Sneak Peek I can tell now is that in days I'm planning to start works on the campaign.

    BTW good to see you active Star :)

    @Azure: Call it mechanical chicken then:p BTW have you received request PM from me? If yes tell me whether you're working on it ro not.

    @Leopard: Explosion anim will be a little problem in contradistinction to attack anim as the model is based from heroic_milkman's raptor model :wink:
