Hi, people! My name is Psycho Snake in the RPG world. That or Zion Demonio. I'm totally new here. In fact, this is my 1st post here. If you've been in animeworld.com, you might reconize me. And if you do, the reason why I left is 'cause some people there were kinda mean. Now, right off the bat, i'm gonna ask would I get in trouble if, persay, I went to the All-Villain thread and made a dude on there? Please, help. I need answers! Tell me now.
Let me be the first welcome you!
Ok so I'm pretty new here too, but yes I think thats allowed, but you should probably PM one of the mods, or Welshie's Mate, those are the people in the know here.
"Romero, Romero. Where for art thou Romeo."
Actually means "Why are you called Romeo?"
The mods would be the best people for the RPGs, redDragon specifically. I don't run any of them, though I do appreciate the namecheck.
And the All-Villains RPG needs some new blood, so it'd be very good to have you on board. Who would you be?
Did you know that furious amounts of spam are dangerous to your health and/or rights to post at all in fear of getting ones head bit off by the mods?

That I knew about and same with the Greeks, you don't want to get me started on Ancient Rome...
Prior to the Mariuan Reforms, by Gaius Marius, The roman legions used a three tier system of warfare. The inexperinced soldiers were placd at the fron with javelins called Pilum, behind them were the Principies who were the middle class soldier, moderatly experinced, and finally at the back row with only a Gladuis and a Triarii Pike were the Triarii the most veteran of the soldiers.
This structure for the war was appropriate for defending the Latin peninsula (Italy) but very bad for campaigns that exceeded a year in length. Gaius reformed the Legions introducing a gift of land, or a pension if no land was available, a mixing of the veterans with the newbies, to reduce the number of casualties in the front ranks. Every man was given a spear, a Pilum, a sword(Gladius), a short sword/long dagger and a smaller dagger.
The Pilum was to designed to break upon impact as many enemies of Rome would pick up fallen Javelins and hurl them back at the Legionaires. The Pilum was desigined so that either the metal half would seperate from the wooden half, and that the metal part would bend on impact. After the battle they could easily be repaired and made ready for the next battle.
Ohh and Hi Lord Welshi *bows* and hi Starfire *returns hug* I will enjoy such space to express madness and randomness

As an avid reader of military history, i can proudly say i know this
And welcome to the forum Zion! Are you sure you don't want to also participate int he JLU threaD? lol...well as soon as other members start posting. -AHEM-
I knew most of Rever's description of Roman warfare too. I dare say that within the next year, i'll have covered the roman military in quite extensive detail.
And there's no need to bow to me...at least, not until you've read my stories. Only then can you bow, for you should make your own judgement as to weather i deserve the bowing or not.
No rise and go forth!
Thanks people, for the warm welcomes. Thanks for the RPG welcomes, too. Also, I told you who I was. Psycho Snake. Or Zion. Either way, but i'd rather the snake thing. Naw'mean? Yeah.
I know I sound a little pushy, but could some of you read The Chronicles of Dead-Eye. I wanted to try a different way of writing a fanfic.
It's kinda hard for me to edit my stories, and this one has changing perspectives, so I need someone to Edit it.
Just PM me.
And now for my trademark random fact/quote...
The Author Tery Pratchett frequently mentions his first job at 17 as a jounralist in rural England. What he also mentions in the same breath is that he saw his first corpse three hours later.
It's taken me a while, but I found out what happened. A farmer had fallen through an old well that he had used to store pig crap. He'd fallen in head-first and had been buried up to his wasit in waste. When young Terry had gotten to the scene the deceased had been removed from the place of partial burial and was to be taken to the undertaker's for preparation for a full burial in a less smelly substance.
What the esteemed author remembers the mosst is "All the hundreds of pretty yellows and greens and purples the Human body can turn when drowning sh*t"
So, like, what's the book about? It has a good title, but you can't trust a title. I can't. Not since last time.
I haven't had a chance to do so yet(I'm a little late it seems), but welcome Zion. I suppose I'll see ya around the boards! Also, I have yet to state a fact I know. . .Okay;
There was actually a battle fought during the American Civil War that involved men actually fighting with nothing but spoons and forks. The two forces were in the middle of eating, and during the dinner time of the two, a small fight broke out which in turn started a full scaled battle. . .but there were no weapons other than the aforementioned spoons and forks. That's not much, but it made me laugh. .
Wow, everyone's so nice! Even the landlady. *Landlady comes over,* *Yells at me to pay rent, slaps me upside the head, and I go flying 5 ft.* Scratch that. *Kicks me in stomach* OOOWWWWW!!! Why ya' gotta be like that, lady?!... *running*
^That reminds me of a movie I just watched. . .Kung Fu Hustle. It was funny.
Yeah, that's where I got it from. I LOVE that movie! It's one of my favorites. That's why I used that.
I thought that some of the fight scenes reminded me of Dragon Ball Z. . .which is awesome. Especially the last fight. . .
Yes, that is true. The fight scenes were BAD. But in my opinion, the WHOLE movie was good, not just the fight scenes. ... Oh God... SHE'S BACK!!! *Running like hell* Gotta RLH!
Kung-Fu Hustle is Hilarious!!
I love the knife-throwing scene...
"Who threw this handle?!"
Turns to his friend behind him with the blade of the knife lodged in his shoulder...
