Hey folks,

Thus far, six scripts in the OWC have been posted.  I'll be posting six scripts at a time in this thread: http://www.simplyscripts.net/cgi-bin/Blah/Blah.pl?b-OWC0409/

A note on the names.  Some folks chose to be anonymous.  Some folks chose not to be anonymous.  Both are cool.  For those to were anonymous, thank George Willson for the theme on the names of the anonymous submitters.  You get extra points (which are worth nothing, by the way) if you can figure out the theme of the names of the anonymous posters (void in Argentina, Antarctica and Oklahoma).  

There were around 30-ish submissions.  If you submitted before 9:00 edt on Friday 4/10 you've gotten a notification of receipt.  If you submitted after 9:00 edt then you will have to wait for confirmation on receipt.  

Enjoy and head over to http://www.simplyscripts.net/cgi-bin/Blah/Blah.pl?b-OWC0409/ to start reading.

All are military leaders, and while some achieved some political status, my guess is that they all, along with being military leaders with significant successes, achieved hero status in the nations they fought for.

So where are all the rest of the scripts? Were they the ones sent in after 9? Some of these are really good and I want to read more. MORE.

Quoted from Grandma Bear
Also master horsemen....  at least the 5 names I've seen so far.

All have statues of them on a horse too!  

Do I get any points??


I have to agree to this fact, this is closer, but the only pic of Yue Fei I could find was him standing next to his horse.

However, after the last group, I might have to backpedal on the horse thing. WWII generals could have been adept at riding horses, but by the time they achieved rank and ran ops in WWII, I doubt they were galloping about on horses.

Yes, all are military leaders.    You get 10,000 points (totally worthless).

Quoted from Grandma Bear

Also master horsemen

Do I get extra points??

Not all are master horsemen.  No worthless points.  

++++++++++++
Also, since some folks chose not to be anonymous, there are also some folks who were initially anonymous, but may want to reveal themselves before the great reveal.   That is cool, too.  You will, however, loose a ton of worthless points if you do.

Don, because it is a saturday, and I am wearing plaid, according to OWC rules I should get a bonus of 10,000 WorthlessPoints (TM).

Unless, of course, we're playing by international OWC rules, where it's a whole different story.
