It's really not as complicated as it probably should be. Photoshop is a wonderful thing.

Legate is being defensive, and is taking it to the extreme by actually attacking the one who first cast suspicion on him. I think he is an Elf who's making clumsy mistakes in his panic.

Well, I gotta have sponsors to keep the site going... Sorry for that.


I think that The Might is bluffing. First he says that Legate is the Argonath, but then accuses him of being an Elf. And notice that he votes himself only after Legate first votes him. Slipping under the radar, huh?
I say Legate is the Argonath, The Might a were-Legate and Lhuna a were-Elf.

One could easily get the impression that the WW games have taken over the entire forum! Let's keep them where they belong - nothing against an occasional humorous reference elsewhere, but not a whole string of posts please...

Rikae, one could imagine that you of all people would know better than to just make assumptions about people's ages without checking their user cps...

And to stay a bit more on topic, I can't help wondering when did this photo page grow so large... I mean, it was such a little while ago that we had only 1,5 pages of pictures... odd.

Well, guess that an update is in order, so here's a newer picture of me (actually two friends were there two, but I cut them out).




Maybe you can also update my picture in the gallery with this one.

Hmm, I must say you are indeed looking very... official. May I ask where it was taken?

Though I must say I like more the one you posted before: simply because there is more light in it.

It was taken at a friend's house right before we went to a party of our student corporation, or Schülerverbindung in German.

The best thing about your picture, The Might, is that it is very photoshopable.

It's there! You sure put some contrast between this picture and the preveous one. Wouldn't have guessed that it's the same person.

All I can say is, expect the words 'corrupt', 'politician', 'scandal' and 'lung' to be in an upcoming edition.

Yeah, let's wait to see if other Downers start posting pictures of themselves in Lord of the Rings hairstyles Actually the herringbone braid is not that hard to make.

Anyways... I recently acquired through... mysterious sources... a Barrow Downs T-shirt and I thought it high time I showed it off to the little world of the Downs.
Here I am standing by the infamous (or should that be 'un-famous'?) Parbold Bottle. Because it's in Parbold and looks like a bottle... Yes... I'm sure at least Lal knows what I'm rambling on about.

Thumbs up

Yes the 1832 Reform Act thing! You've not just climbed up Parbold Hill have you? You must be very keen on exercise! I hope the Wiggin Tree still serve monstrous ice creams for some much needed refreshment, or at least there's a van parked up there today (mmmm...De Romas....mmmmm).

The Ice-Cream truck was there, but I forgot my wallet.

I was going to doctor the photo and have Dragons flying around in the sky, but I'm too tired now.

I'm outraged. Anyone who dares climb Parbold Hill deserves a free ice-cream, maybe even a can of pop too

You should go up Harrock Hill to see the disused windmill. Dragons would be most appropriate up there. But you won't find an ice-cream van

E-mail it to Volo and say 'Please put this on the photo page, here enclosed is one (1) block of gold.' I'm sure that will work.

May I give you a piece of advice? Don't wait for a perfect pic, for such will never come, as sad as it is... I know this from experience.

Exactly, I just wanted to say that. When I posted my pic, it was the best I had at the moment, but overall I would classify it as not good at all. And if you want to post a pic, do it, since if you start thinking about it, you'll end up not sending anything (also personal experience).

Another thing is that anyway one looks totally different in RL than how the photos picture him, so don't worry that we'd classify you based on one photo... (well, we will, but you will know that we are wrong )

Has anyone already noticed the interesting link we all have:

http://i20.photobucket.com/albums/b205/ih8mcdonalds/Barrowdownsphotopage/legate01.jpg

So...seems some anti-fastfood message hidden there, isn't it?

Actually I am quite fond of McDonald's, don't really care about the whole unhealthy part as long as I get my food .

Here are two pictures which ought to dispel Downers' generally bizarre mental images of what I look like (e.g. Lurch, a dragon, skinny blond kid, etc.).

Has anyone ever told you that you a quite handsome, Gwathagor? Don't know if such a compliment would be out of place here, but I think you are.

Oh! That is so funny! I didn't picture you as a "skinny blond kid" but I thought you were a little closer to it then the pictures of you are! Wow. Yeh, your not blond, and it doesn't quite look like you could be called a kid anymore, eh?

You look disturbingly like someone I know. But the disturbing this is, I don't know who...
