Yep, the umbrella comes on handy.

Heavy metal? Sounds more like techno or trance to me.

Doesn't quite add up. If the storms were thrown into the can to create a selection pressure so that a lonely AI who outlived the Oafan Civilization might have company, how did the Oafans name them?

I know yay was revived like 5 times but if he did it I don't think that's really enough to say the ancient oafans did.

Also, if the names are appropriate, the anvil coming at you at 120km/h is the least of your worries. Wait until the hammer smashes in. If they ARE made of acids and bases, I expect the exothermic reaction to be spectacular as well.

They were named by the Oafan Hives (the on point bugs). Check today's page.

Oh I missed that. That makes much more sense.

The rest of my post still stands though, it's not the anvil you need to watch out for, it's the hammer.

Well... it's still a flavor of 'recent'... ;)

I'm more surprised that they use the Oafan language. Though I supposed Broken Wind was probably communicating with them the entire time they were evolving, and would've influenced their culture.

Pretty sure that was a guess on the AI's part anyway. I sort of assume it knocked down the wall because it's full of assholes and it didn't want anyone waking them up.
