Weeee! New Bethro the Delver... some great stuff. I love the song. Also, great work on the site Matt! Cool stuff.

And I want an Eighth name too. Like Choehan (John) Williams or something... I dunno. I'm not very Eighth-savvy. :thumbsup

Great work everyone... hmmm... and maybe I should join the Eighth mapping thingie. Or maybe not... hmmm. :D

Sugar? Yes.

Thanks, fella!

Yeah, the main thing about Eighth names is that they try to be a bit silly. Favor hard consonants and whatever else makes the word easy to pronounce. A trick is to pick a word that sounds like something else and mutate it beyond recognition, but hopily leaving behind connotations. (i.e. "willibum" below comes from "silly bum"). "Choehan" isn't bad, but here are a few other possibilities off the top of my head:

Jondo Willups
Jonubut Wort
Jompers Willibum
Jobothan Wolly

Ooh, I like some o' them. Dunno which one to pick though... maybe I'll be Choehan Willibum, just for kicks.

Hmm... if I find the free time to do it, or if I'm really bored doing my homework, I'll probably give the map a go. Problem is, I was sick for a whole week because of the stupid flu, and I have a lot of makeup work to do. O_o

I just realized the awesome pun in the green snakes being adders. And thought I'd spoil the fun for anyone who hasn't yet.

I couldn't think of a similar pun for the blue snakes, but I did think of the traditional Zelda enemy that the blue snake reminded me of, hence the rattlesnake.

Oh, and I added something else I think is pretty neat. Try going to http://www.drod.net/FakeFolder/ThisDoesntExist.html.

Heh, good idea.

Upon first glance I didn't even find any typos for you :) I'd look at it again, but I've already closed the window and I'm lazy.

Oh, on an unrelated note, is Dimthro going to make an appearance on the monster pages, or should I let my hopes back down?

Well, we'll see. Next thing I have to get up is the Hold Download page, so I'll update the rest of the site while I'm at it.
