Doesn't this completely and utterly contradict Heh-blammo balance, which says - and I quote - "Finally, I would be remiss if I did not at least mention the episode of the Darkened Lantern. Some of the Brothers involved called it a schism in the brotherhood. Others called it a simple misunderstanding. Still others called it a practical joke. The real truth of what happened, or what the dispute was about, is not known to this author. However, what is know, with respect to the balance, is the widely publicized event when dozens of Brothers faced each other across the crowded main room of the 'Daver, and screamed "HEH" and "BLAMMO" at one another for six uninterrupted hours, only stopping when the Ball Lightning Liqueur ran out and they all went home." Or is the yelling of "Heh" and Blammo" supposed to be some other, unrelated incident? --Dfaran L'Eniarc 19:18, 8 Jun 2005 (EDT)

Well, ignoring the out-of-game reality of what you're saying, in-game, the author of Heh-blammo DOES say that the events of the Darkened Lantern are not known to him. This calls into question his assumption that the six hour shouting match had ANYTHING to do with the "real" Darkened Lantern event which, again, the author professes to know nothing about. Alternatively, it could be that the Brothers, so split due to the AI issue, came together in a bit of frustrated solidarity over what they COULD agree on: the heh-blammo balance and the never-ending give and take it requires, where all the actions are well-known, scripted, and comfortable. --Morbus Iff 00:12, 9 Jun 2005 (EDT)
