The Apes Win

After comparing the trolls of Violet to the Planet of the Apes, Stefanos announced his retirement from the field.

I'm not at all sure happened, but it seems Nym was involved.  Nym has the ability to talk men into very strange things.  She's aware of this and seems to get a great deal of enjoyment out of it.  She once talked Chapel into crossing an ocean for a romantic encounter, which sounds like witchcraft to me.  I always put wax in my ears and lash myself to the mast when she's around, just in case.

There's no easing of tension between Stefanos and Oggen though, so I suppose battles will continue there.

Bored an annoyed, Oggen seems to have cast himself as the arch villain of SecondLife.  His M.O. is to prey on the weakness of others, particularly the sexual proclivities of the female population.

Interestingly, casting himself as a villain, not only makes SecondLife more interesting for Oggen, it makes SecondLife more interesting to anyone who accepts him as a villain.  For Stefanos he has become some sort of questing beast, pursuing which is vastly more fun than hanging out at info hubs listening to the bullshit.

Where there might be a problem, Boogar-Nose Stark has also decided he will be the arch villain for SecondLife, for much the same reasons.  Boogar-Nose isn't smart or creative enough to spread his reputation by making women do stupid things, so he's crashing sims and talking about Hitler.

There can be only one arch-villain though, so at some point there has to be some sort of death-match between Oggen and Boogar-Nose.  I have a pretty good idea how it'll turn out, but it'll still be fun to watch.


  1. I was given a link to the Oggen blog. Thing is, why is it not funny?

  2. He has a pretty strange writing style is part of it, the other, I'm not sure he's even trying to be funny.
