8) One of the greatest single moments of glee for us involved a Humakti (the one who later fell from grace). Challenged to a duel by an enemy Humakti in a tough battle, he gave the immortal reply:

"Out of my way, pup!" and snicked off the enemy's head. We were most pleased, our warriors were most pleased, the enemy was most displeased. We won the battle handily. Still makes us grin. 8)

On the other hand, we keep wondering if it was the correct "think like an Orlanthi" response.... "Accept the challenge" seems more like the "Mythically Correct" attitude.
