    Default Merry X-Mas Forumfall

    Figured i would post this in OT too...

    'Twas the night before Beta, when all through the net
    Not a Mod was stirring, not even Brannoc;
    The cables were hung by the servers with care,
    In hopes that release soon would be here;
    The beta testers were nestled all snug in their beds,
    Those damn lucky bastards, I wish they were dead;
    And Tasos in his office, and I in my bottle,
    Have to keep drinking, the seconds last a mile,
    When out on the forums there arose such a clatter,
    I sprang from my stooper to see what was the matter.
    Away to my keyboard I flew like a flash,
    Clicked on the link and scrolled to the thread.
    The tolls out in full force had caused a trouble,
    Gave the forumfall veterans an aneurism bubble,
    When, what to my wondering eyes should appear,
    But a topic called Beta!, and no lock to appear,
    With a tentative motion, my mouse did click,
    I knew in a moment it must be a trick.
    More rapid than eagles the 'nay sayers they came,
    Crying out 'Vapor!' and tarnishing it's name;
    "Now, Tasos! now, Brannoc! now, Claus and Ricki!
    On, Kjetil! on Henning! on, Erik get freaky!
    To the top of the homepage I scrolled to see,
    Open beta was official, my pants I did pee.
    As my heart did pound and my ears did ring,
    I kept clicking and clicking to read all I could see,
    So up to the forums again I did check,
    The topic called Beta!, was exploding with threats.
    'This better be real!, No tricks to be had!',
    'Or I will PK you I swear' is what they all said.
    As I drew in my shaking hand, to the download link I did click,
    A box did pop up, with the sweetest sight I could see.
    0.0% of Darkfall.exe I did have,
    A better sight, my eyes never had.
    A bundle of toys would not be better,
    Than seeing the progress bar increase by a number.
    My eyes wide as saucers-- how they twinkled with merry!
    My cheeks all flushed, that may be the brandy,
    My mouth frozen in a goofy ass smile,
    My skin was pale, I would not see the sun for a while;
    And the smoke it encircled, my bong I did hit;
    Had to calm my nerves or else I would flip,
    I shook like a chihuahua tossed in the snow,
    All excited and scared, I've been waiting for a while,
    And I laughed when I saw progress I did make;
    0.01%, I thought I would faint,
    Soon gave me to know I had nothing to dread;
    The speed picked up, my network wasn't dead,
    Laying my finger aside of my nose,
    I snorted a line, tonight I would not doze;
    Darkfall soon I would log in and play,
    The life that I had would not see another day.
    One last time the forums I checked,
    And noticed a statement from Tasos at last,
    Very short and simple, his words did say,

    "Happy PKing to all, and to all a good fight."

    Never group up with a retarded Dwarf; it's not big and it's not clever.
