Hiya!! Coming back from the dead after over 10 years of not login in that forum I find this giveaway... Well, thanks!!

So I pick 8 and 15.
Those pack seems to have little gems.

Also CB: I discovered your LtF series today. Red everything (about 2h read?) and my did I enjoy it. The style, the little bits of Lewis' thoughts process and humour, also helped me renew with the universe of Eschalon a bit.
I believe his favourite colour to be Brown though I don't think he remembers! Ha!
Here's my reasoning: Chests and those tempting XXX Barrels are wooden brown and contains loot and goodies. Doors leading to new (and back from) adventure are brown too... And I would sprinkle chocolate on everything (almost everything; certainly not on sh*t!)...

Welcome back, and welcome to The List! :twisted: :o :shock:

I'll get you those games and add some flavor text. I'm on the road currently for work; I'm hanging in my hotel room right now and being lazy (got an early day tomorrow), but I promise to update soon!

I'm actually working on another bit of fan fiction for my collection. This one should be pretty interesting - it might actually be too big to just paste into a single post. I've been poking at it off and on since 2016.. >.<

**edit** Well, it might fit after all... successfully pasted 3800 words into a single post field... although I ain't done yet... ^_^

Too many games, don't know what I could even pick XD

Great idea for this new decade, though !

Edit : I decided to push my luck, and put on my armor to challenge the beast. I not so stealthily walked till the bedroom and prodded the (not snoring) sleeping hulk of a... bundle of love.
- Sweet darling, I'm sorry to disturb your rest at such an ungodly hour, but I found a giveway on a forum for games.
- huh ?
- There happens to be a bundle with Ultra Street fighter IV, would you by any chance be interested in it ?
- huh !(slightly moves head in a way that seems to mean "yes, I do")
- ok, sleep well my love
*level up jingle*

So, being still alive after challenging the beast, I'd like to pick number 11

A dark mist begins billowing near The List as it's remaining appendages begin thrashing and striking out at our heroes. The mist seems to collapse in on itself, forming a living cloak. Stalfos steps forward, with an immense scythe in hand. The glowing tentacles that are Pick's 8 and 16 freeze, then suddenly they both whip in his direction. Calmly, as though strolling through a park, Stalfos turns toward the speeding limbs of energy and begins to twirl his scythe as though were merely a baton. Dark energy gathers, and Stalfos darts forward between the two Picks. An almost imperceptible, circular slash severs both Picks, which continue to thrash around for a few moments before stilling.

The List belts out a furious roar that releases its own shockwave, momentarily stunning the gathered heroes as they are flung several feet back. The entire creature begins to glow with a pulsing light, as it prepares a final, devastating attack. The heroes struggle to recover, but it appears that it will be in vain... The List clearly plans to self-detonate, destroying everyone and everything in the surrounding area.

Just as the pulsing is reaching its crescendo, a vertical slash in reality appears in front of the monster, widening into a portal of glowing blue energy. Out of the portal steps Lewis, clad in some sort of leather gear, holding a rifle in both hands. Looking around, he flashes a scoundrel's grin. "Sorry guys, The Boss decided this was taking way too long." He lifts the rifle to one shoulder as it begins to emit a high-pitched whine. Upon pulling the trigger, a beam of super-heated plasma leaps from the barrel, striking and boring through The List with surgical precision. It's core implodes before the residual energy buildup creates a bubble inside the beast. It suddenly explodes outward, raining slimy purple goo everywhere, and on everyone - almost. Curiously, a small radius around Lewis remains perfectly untouched.

Lewis turns back towards the heroes, wrinkling his nose. "Whoops... didn't see that coming." Cracking another grin, he winks and gives a two-finger salute. As he steps back into the portal, he gives one last quip. "Enjoy the loot party!"

The Corpse is growing....

I may actually split things up by genre... it'll save some folks on the scanning... 'cause why waste time when looking for that free stuff? :mrgreen:
