The rec.games.computer.ultima.* Frequently Asked Questions List (FAQ)
Part 09 of 09

------------------------------------------------------------------------

This FAQ was orginally conceived, and written by Andrew Charlton
aka Erratic Dragon, aka Erraticus (char...@ihug.co.nz). The original
FAQ may be found at http://home.earthlink.net/~fortran/faq/erratic.html.

This FAQ is currently being maintained by Fortran Dragon
(for...@earthlink.net) and may be found at:

Unless otherwise stated, the use of "I" and "me" refers to the FAQ
maintainer. The exception to this is the questions which are written by
the archetypal newbie.

No. :)

But I did decided that I would rather see the whole FAQ make it or
not at all instead of having it possibly make it there in parts.

It's true. The sound is more reminiscent of a *THUD!* than a
*SPLUT!*, but at least we still get a comedy onomatopoeia out of it.
;)

There is much to fear from the Floating Horse ...

Because it was needed and Erratic was willing to hand of the
maintenance of the FAQ to me.

Ewww. No, I was worried more about the horse itself plummeting. I'd
imagine those brollies Wile E. uses aren't a lot of good against
falling liquids, no matter what their composition.

OTOH, they're not much good against falling solid objects, either.

*looks up fear-filly* ;)
