Considering how earth-shattering an event the attack of giant stone creatures summoned by Magical Neo-Luddites is, the 18th century Germans sure picked a boring name for it for posterity: “Ungeheuerangriff” translates as the somewhat mundane “Monster Attack”.

2010/09/02

She may be an incorporeal holographic projection, but mischievous artificial intelligence Roxy can still flirt with the best of ’em…something King Chimera discovers the hard way.

I'll bet she says that to all the intelligent, carbon-based life forms.
