When Aorist died, I came up with an anagram that expressed my sorrow.

Aorist is dead= A driest adios.

Feel free to post more anagrams as they come to you.

In the proud tradition of The Holy Tango of Literature:

NONE BATHE and WILLOWS PEEL
BEN HEATON and LEWIS POWELL

Panel 1
(York's store)
Jame: I was at Sid and Stephen's apartment today...
York: To collect one of the seven talismans?
Jame: No, just visiting. What talismans?
York: Never mind; you must not have played that far yet.

Panel 2
Jame: Anyway, have you ever noticed something... missing?
York: Groceries? Yes.
Jame: No. Have you ever noticed that they don't have a bathroom?
York: I hadn't checked; I'm theologically opposed to faucets.

Panel 3
Jame: But how do they wash themselves?
York: They don't. Stephen's highly soluble, and Sid doesn't believe in dirt.

Panel 4
Jame: I suppose that explains why all of the trees outside their building are starting to lose their bark.
York: Also, Liln is water-blind, Gunpowder is visited by the Filth Fairy every night, and First Folio imports all her cleanliness from a neighboring universe.
Jame: And Omicron?
York: Cats don't take baths. Don't be silly.

title text: It's a good thing Czar Stephen outlawed the sense of smell.

Now Ben has to arrange this into a real Terror Island comic.

Wait, wasn't there a faucet in the strip?

But only for a sink.

Was it ever established that it was a water faucet?

I submit that it was not.

In the comments it says that Ray (Omicron) used to drink from that sink while the water was running. It sounds like a water faucet to me.

That was really quite cool. "Stephen's highly soluble" was my favorite line.

Once, when my uncle and aunt were playing chess, one of them spilled water on the table, and the bottom felt of the rook piece fell off, and little pieces of lead shot (or iron. I really can't tell) started leaking out. I think that's a relevant anecdote.

stephen greeter plus watery cleansing= green rice putty wastrel slang he pens.

Well, that doesn't make any sense at all, but that's okay because I'm terrible at anagrams. Actually it would almost make sense if it were about Sid, since "slang he pens" applies more easily to a Privateer Wordsmith than to a vexillographer.

"Let's get chess guy paper wet, learn inner!"

...Meh. Paper, felt, same difference.

What, exactly, is the anagram there?

It's another one of "Stephen Greeter plus watery cleansing".

Wow, it's so much more coherent than mine.

You said it. Projectyl, should you ever join the Jamists, I wouldn't hesitate to give you the title of "Anagram Champion."

Given that my first-choice faction (the Gunpowderions) is currently experiencing general existence failure, maybe I could serve as the Jamists' anagram double? Any situation where you might conceivably be forced to anagram something, I'm there. Waiting room stocked with nothing but old Jumbles, poorly-plotted religious-conspiracy-thwarting art world thrill quest, you name it.

Actually, I do have a quest. viewtopic.php?t=41 it is. Find out what the anagram is, or find out if Ben is pulling our chain.

EDIT: I have just IM'd Ben and he has verified that the anagram does have a meaning.

It's real? No! (Drr!)

(Shorter anagrams, especially ones with such a heavy consonant-to-vowel ratio, are pretty tough. If there was something meaty in this one, I have a feeling the combined might of TIdom would've dug it up by now.)

Well, there's only two consonants for every vowel. And really, they're pretty common letters.

I made an offer to the last person who wanted to be a Gunpowderion, which I will now offer to you as well, and which shall remain standing for all prospective faction members until a Gunpowder faction is created:

BatmanAoD wrote:
I think that Gunpowder is, in fact, a Jamist himself, in a way. So here's my proposed compromise: declare yourself a Jamist, and I will confer upon you the Order of the Double, or some such similar thing, which I just now invented for the devious purpose of drawing you to my cause.

Now Ben is telling me that he has since forgotten if it is real or not. I guess that means you might not be able to solve it.

Given that Ben was the first person to ask "why is it called Terror Island" in the first place, I'm guessing he wasn't trying to give us an actual answer.

It was a kind of funny, but not the kind you laugh at.

You mean the kind of funny that makes you knit your eyebrows and wrinkle your nose a little in distaste?

I ran it though one of those ones that pulls up every combination and looked through it. :(
