Origins of the Name

"Tiltowait" is a 7th level Mage spell from one of the first computer games, an ancient early '80s classic: Wizardry: Proving Grounds of the Mad Overlord. It annihilates all monsters with a "pure blast of nuclear fusion", obviously making it an instant hit with any sort of geek into such things. I'm apparently not the only greying nerd present, because there's also a "Lahalito" in-game.

You find a magic apple!
You place it on the ground and wait.
After a while a Worm wonders into view. It ignores you totally and eats some of the apple. A noise startles you and you look behind you. When you look
 back both apple and creature have gone.
Thinking back, you remember your mother telling you that you were born under the sign of the Worm!
You lose a Magic Compass.

Got a pwny for Xmas!

  • Kressida is a noble & giving soul. Details on 'Possum are here.

I Joined a Cult

Mommy & Daddy Tiltowait will be so proud!

Darksatanic is Kewl

  • He bailed me out of a particular nasty situation
  • Ironically, I'd done it to myself previously too. That was dumb.


  • It's been 8 weeks now, and 'Possum is a war horsie! Yay me!
  • Thanks to Caelicoli's Shalom, 'Possum is confirmed as a boy war horsie.
  • Both dam & sire were first generation pwnys from chits, and proved to be war horsies. But based on some recent breeding experience, 'Possum may be FE.
  • Thanks to Azuaron, I acquired a second pwny, Bullseye.
  • Time will tell, but the dam was a winged horsie and the sire was a horsie. Bullseye is probably AE.
  • It's been 8 weeks again, and Bullseye is a winged horsie! Ride like the wind, Bullseye!
  • Bullseye is confirmed as a boy winged horsie. Yippee. A regular sausage-fest.
  • Rhapsodie provided me with a new pwny, presently named Liquorice. I've decided not to rename it until I figure out the gender at 8 weeks.
  • Liquorice is a boy sea horsie. Based on parents, he's probably a WE.
  • Azuaron gave me Silver, a girl sea horsie. I finally have some breeding stock!
  • Renamed Silver to Penelope.
  • Renamed Liquorice to Bad Horse (The Thoroughbred of Sin).
  • Traded Penelope to Shaman fishface. Received Hudson, a boy horsie.

Hunt for Sertularian

  • I owe Sertularian 2k. It's chump-change from him shystering me into financing his guild's teleporter. Jeeze, make one joke...
  • Ha! I found Sertularian skulking around the trading post in Earth City and returned the 2000 shiny gold insults to my dignity. Today, Monday 6/9/08 at about 20:00 GMT, is officially Find Sertularian Day.
