"Break Like The Wind" a.k.a. "Peashooter Deathsquad" is a small group of crazy funsters, dedicated to playing Quake CTF using the philosophy of that ancient and knowledgeable strategist, the 'Sheriff of Nottingham', who, in his well known treatise on military stratagems, written in 1194, on the back of a tobacco pouch, is known to have stated that, though a knife makes an ideal weapon, a 'spoon hurts more'. Though we will, if the situation demands it, resort to such a clumsy weapon as the Rocket Launcher, we're much happier dancing manically like kids on amphetamines with a trusty peashooter.....
The clan can usually be found
around playing like demons on Globals quake CTF site from 1-2
pm and 5-6ish pm UK time.
Clan members (with make-believe skins) are:
Yojimbo - That's me! My specialties
are running with the flag directly into enemy rocket launcher fire, diving
heroicly into lava to recover flags on the off chance I survive, grappling
into the enemy with the hope they blow themselves up and I live, and generally
doing anything that's foolish enough to give me a negative frag count.
El Tinso - His specialties are running interference, not usually too concerned with actually getting the flag, he prefers wreaking mayhem between the bases and sometimes beyond, next time you're out on an ammo run and encounter a nutter antagonizing you by jumping up and down in front of you, before blowing you away, that's the old El Tinso..... like Old El Paso TM - only spicier!
- The true aficionado of backstabbing!! You can run kids, but you can't
see behind you.... and that's where he'll be ;-) 'nuff said!
Loose Tart - My sister, just learning the Quake ropes - but give her the pentagram, a rocket launcher, the strength rune and Quad, and she's a match for anyone.....
The latest addition to the clan, and we're very proud to have him, during
his stringent on-line interview I asked him why he wanted to join our little
team, and he gave the best answer that any candidate for BLTW could, "because
I want letters after my name like everyone else!". Thud
had always entertained us before he joined the clan by always dying with
a smile on his gibbed oozing decapitated face - and we like that... His
humour, wit, and that funny little way his head has of bouncing when it's
shot off should hopefully keep the clan in good cheer when things are going
A Note On Clan Membership....
Basically it's like this - if your name isn't
on this page you ain't in the clan. We've noticed a few 'groupies' trying
to pass themselves off as members, binding keys to BLTW clan sayings and
such like. Basically we don't give a flying fsck if you want to do that,
but it makes you a groupie not a member (see first sentence).
Even though we are clearly a spoof clan, membership to the clan is on invitation
only, and the sort of people we want in it have to match up to some pretty
high standards in areas such as fine art, discrete mathematics, usage of
notation, ability to play at least one stringed and one wind instrument
to grade 7 standard, do a 100 metres in under 12 seconds, explain how you
normalise a database in plain english, published at least one novel
under a gay sounding pen name, be able to strip down, clean, rebuild and
balance dual SU-HS6 Carbs at the side of a road, have at least one Linux
application in the Public Domain, and finally be able to appreciate the
beauty and sublime subtlelty of the entire Sheena Easton experience (on
Kill ya later.....
