Good job, people! We're a week ahead of schedule! Let's keep it up.

Is there a reason for the jump between Apr. 20th and 30th?

Sorry for putting us back to schedule. Gmail decided that BD notifications were junkmail, so I had no idea it was my turn before Oddie poked me on Friday. It was a really busy day for me, so I told her I'd draw the picture the next day, and lo! I forgot, of course. Now it's very late Sunday night and I remembered it again, but I have an exam tomorrow and I still have to study for it, so I can't really start drawing now. However, I will definitely do it tomorrow because I'm seeing Agan and Greenie and maybe one more friend for a homemade drawing/painting class so I can definitely use part of my time for doing the PT pic and they can make sure I do it...

Hi, Nogrod, Thinlomien.

I'm like a bad penny, I turn up every two years collecting dust beneath the sofa.

Am I too late to join in the fun?

Hi Eorl! We're in the middle of a long game right now, but I'll keep you in mind if I need a backup, and I'm sure there'll be a spot in the next game for you to claim.

No, not really, more like it froze. We're way behind the DLs!

Incidentally, do any of you old-timers know what's the record time for a PT to finish? Like half a year or a year and a half?

Ssssssoooooooooooooooo. Thennnnnnn. If the final deadline was actually deadly, we're beyond safe right now. We're unconquerable demigods ruling the fates with an iron fist.

Would we like to stop now? Or figure it's only three more people and just keep going?

Stricter deadlines is difficult to enforce, especially during long games. I mean if you are number 8 on the list, it doesn't take many delays for the PT to ring at a time when you are not expecting it (and maybe not on the Downs much)

Anyways, if a system could be put in place, then I am all for stricter deadline. However I do think that the easiest solution will be less participants in each game...

It is an interesting game! But not as interesting as the games you can play with dental suction units!

Noggie, could you poke Lommy again? I'm not sure when she was last on FB

Time at last for the latest edition of PAPER TELEPHONE!

Today's secret code word is:

Quote:
"We might succeed in roasting Pippin alive inside"

Aganzir chortled in her glee, fired up the oven, and then drew this picture:




Rikae had to repeatedly asked for extra awesomesauce, finally resorting to screaming:

Quote:
Faramir and Rune prepare to enjoy a romantic dinner of roast Took.

Galadriel55 was not invited. No way, no how. Because when asked to draw up a menu for the event, she instead drew this:




Nogrod, fortunately, could read Atlantian, and told everyone the meaning of the picture:

Quote:
Karl Marx and Eomer, who has turned into a Gondorian, fine-dine at Minas Tirith with a Shepherd's Pie á la Tom, Bert & Will.

Eonwe eliminated the impossible, and what remained was this improbability:

Legate had to get all bureaucratic on the party, and slapped this warning label onto the dangerous image:

Quote:
Barrow-Downs Public Health Care Association Warning: Reading The Hobbit might cause collective schizophrenia. Only during the last year, we have noted three cases of such a malady afflicting Mr. Of the Rohirrim, Mr. Son of Bjarne and Mr. Nogrod.

Rune made the discovery that beef is great at removing labels. Also, most of the paint. Just look at this:




It was the first thing that Hookbill had ever seen that wasn't confusing as all get out. He immediately dedicated eigteen weeks worth of The Downer to this poem:

Quote:
A dangerous cloud containing three outdated madmen was moving slowly towards the mystical gateway between worlds that would lead it to the Barrow Downs! Mysterious figures stand atop the hill, awaiting the arrival of these three colossal collectivists, but will the electric eel that guards the gate get the better of them?

Greenie was hired to illustrate three of the editions. She did the other fifteen for free. Most of the illustrations greatly resembled this:




Gil-Galad was upset at the cliffhanger ending, and wrote a nasty letter to Argentina:

Quote:
The Three hunters gazed in awe at the mystical Eel, whereas the Evil Umbrella servants could only sulk in the corner.

Blind Guardian went about her morning routine. She stole a neat looking package from Gil's mailbox, which contained a lot of glitter and this picture:

Sally couldn't stand it anymore and screamed:

Quote:
In PJ's new Hobbit film, budget cuts lead to such money-saving measures as clipping Smaug's wings, borrowing props from the Resident Evil franchise, and inviting Fischer-Price to sponsor the film by providing weapons. The cast, much like the fans, are displeased with these changes.

Lommy exploded in suprise! The powder burns on the wall looked like this:




TGEW was convinced of foul play. In her report to the police, this quote was taken out of context, and later became the basis for yet another creation myth:

Quote:
Bard makes that crucial aim at a water-bound Smaug.

MCR sneakily sabotaged TGEW's report, adding a few embellishments of her own:




It was food for thought. Aganzir bit it. After they wrestled it out of her mouth, her teethmarks spelled out:

Quote:
Bard the Bowman needs no clothes.

Rikae did what she could with what was left, but had to piece together some missing areas with some nearby Dark Matter:

G55 was afraid of the dark! She left all the lights in the house on, running from room to room screaming:

Quote:
Bard the Bowman realises the full horror of his situation as he comprehends that Shasta and Kath, forming the Dark Wight Alliance, stole all his clothes, leaving him only his quiver.
Next door, Nogrod couldn't sleep with all the racket. He started throwing anything he could get his hands on at G55's brightly lit house. The splatter on the wall looked like:




Eonwe was enthralled. It soon became apparent that he was insane. As he was carted off, he proclaimed:

It soon became apparent to Faramir that tales of the Mewlips were greatly exaggerated.
Legate suddenly felt the need to catch them all. Catching only some was just not an option. He drew this idea for a better poketrap:




Rune fell into one of the prototype traps. He escaped easily, despite losing both his legs. He wanted to get this tattooed on himself to commemorate the event:

Quote:
The absurd and nightmarish encounter left Faramir bewildered and slightly irate.
Hookbill fooled everyone. He wasn't a tattoo artist after all! He took Rune's money and purchased this:

Greenie hunted him down in cold blood. On his tombstone she wrote:

Quote:
Dracula's grandmother returns from the dead to take vengeance on Sean Bean.

Gil dug up the body that night. But instead of a body, he found this:




Blind Guardian came up with a scientific theory to explain the anomaly, and called it:

Quote:
Death jumps out of a weird-shaped crevice to extract vengeance on a creepy guy.

Sally refuted her claim, claiming that that sort of thing happened all the time. It happened to her fifth cousin all the time. Then she drew this on her van and drove off into the sunset:




Lommy loved it! She had to have it! So she stole it. But she did change the licence plate to read:

Quote:
Hookbill Half-Cat came to regret the day he slew the primordial Nazgűl-sprouting spruce.

TGEW objected on the grounds of poor hygiene. So she threw dirt at it until it looked like this:




And over the end credits, MCR could be heard reading the epilogue:

Quote:
Eowyn, who is now apparently a cat with a man's head, reflects on killing the Nazgul-spruce tree


The end!

Rikae's picture left me in fits of giggles.

And, Blind Guardian, how dare you? Sean Bean isn't creepy!

I didn't know that was Sean Bean until after Oddwin told me!

Haha, guys, that was amazing!

Aganzir, Nog, and Rikae, I adored your pictures! Legate, your sentence cracks me up.

I'm up for the next round.

The sentence of Blind Guardian made me laugh a lot.

Legate, you knew I was the next in line.... why did you do it?

I got proper annoyed with both drawing and text, well actually I liked the drawing, but why all that text?

Anyways it was a good read, with some excellent drawings! (especially Rikae)
And of course it wouldn't be complete, if I didn't bitch a bit.

Rikae, your pic is just fabulous! Greenie's is rather... mystical. I would really like to hang it in my room, but I wouldn't have expected it in PT (but then again, it was stemming from the sentence...). Nog's pic is actually pretty neat, because I think the people are really well recognizable!

Ah, but I didn't know you were after me until I looked. I seldom check who is after me before I draw/write. With the text, I think that sort of text is pretty well open to interpretation, so why not just that...
