Tad Williams' Message Board

Hello, babies. Welcome to Earth. It's hot in the summer and cold in the winter. It's round and wet and crowded. At the outside, babies, you've got about a hundred years here. There's only one rule that I know of, babies -- 'God damn it, you've got to be kind.'
-    Kurt Vonnegut, 1922-2007

Welcome to the message board for tadwilliams.com. All comments are welcome, whether kudos or brickbats. However, please bear in mind that Tad would like this to be a friendly, civil message board, at least in the relations between users. We reserve the right to remove postings, or even ban postings, from anyone who crosses the boundary of reasonable taste. Basically, you can argue vigorously with someone, but watch your language, okay? We have a lot of young readers as well as grown-ups, so please show them some respect.

But the main requirement here is: have fun.

Re: The Centre of Pestilence

Zerglings? Is that anything like those Mucinex trolls?

Thanks.  You are correct: It isn't at all nice.  Plymouth gave up on getting any sleep in the same room as me, b/c I cough too much.  I've also been totally zonked; the most energetic thing I've done this weekend is watch a movie-fied version of Starcraft II part 1 and 2.  (Gave up on ever getting around to playing it, just watched a playthrough, skimming across the battles to get the plot.)  Decided that perhaps my lungs are infested with very small zerglings.

You should check out Carbot's starcrafts videos. The zerglings in them are adorable!

Firs: Zerglings are kind of like fast insectoid rabid dogs that are cheap, weak and assault en masse ;)

Ah. So they are Mucinex trolls. ;)

Re: The Centre of Pestilence

The Starcrafts cartoons are awesome, but I doubt they make much sense to people not playing Starcraft :)

Less with the slime, more with the teeth and claws. Though I wouldn't be too surprised to find those troll things crawling out of a spawning pool.

Re: The Centre of Pestilence

I would be surprised... the zerglings would eat them. I doubt those slimy things are quick enough to escape...

Teeth and claws? Ouch!

Feel better quick, Auros!

Re: The Centre of Pestilence

The coughing is probably caused by some of them turning into banelings and blowing up. Nothing to worry about. Really.
