Review of chapter "Welcome to the Jungle" from TroyGuffey
Review:
Interesting premise, fairly well written.

One MAJOR disagreement: Unless it Discworld canon that you have to be able to read to be affected by Runes, Sigils, Signs, etc.; the headhunters should have been hit by the Fear Runes. Runes (and the other things) are essentially temporary enchantments that cause concept effects when seen in-person. (BTW, /copies/ not drawn by mages should have no effect.)

(It would be majorly funny for the Dean to have drawn some Runes of Orgasm in the sand....)
Comments from author:
Thank you.

This was something that I knocked up very quickly as a response to misreading the summary of another story on this site and, as it is purely a humour piece, I wasn't that bothered about sticking to the laws of magic. In my D&D based stories I wouldn't have done it that way - I'm well aware that, for instance, a Glyph of Warding can blow your head off even if you haven't noticed that you're crossing it - but this isn't D&D. Sir Terry tends to apply such laws in the way that will either suit the story best or provide the best comic effect - although, having done so, he then follows the same rule in future to maintain internal consistency - and I followed the same principle. To the best of my knowledge he hasn't used any scenario involving illiterate persons and runes, there is no set canon in the issue, and so I made my own rule.

Review:
Bizarre, please continue.

Thanks for sharing
Comments from author:
Thank you.

I'll do a sequel, to be titled 'Agatean Democracy', after I update a couple of my WIPs.

Interesting story, you know you can't leave it there.

Comments from author:
Thank you! I will write a sequel, eventually, although I'm going to leave how they escape from Bhangbhangduc to the readers' imaginations.

Review of chapter "Welcome to the Jungle" from (Past Donor)Jewel
Review:
Fantastic. You've definitely got the feel for Pratchett's writing style!

Shame you've completed it - I'd love to see more of this group's adventures :)
Comments from author:
Thank you! I'll write a sequel eventually but I have far too many other things to get on with for it to be soon.

Review of chapter "Welcome to the Jungle" from Feyn
Review:
The punes! The punes!

I may be unique (and possibly disturbed) in that i'm mentally crossing the Robin Hood part with Mel Brooks' When Things Were Rotten. Will there be any more snippets? Even if there aren't, thanks for writing this one.
Comments from author:
Thank you! I definitely intend to write more snippets eventually, especially Faith versus Ninjas in Agatea.

Review of chapter "Welcome to the Jungle" from Cutiepie
Review:
Very fun. Would you perhaps choose to explain "Live fats, die yo gnu" to a pathetically confused reader? I feel like I should 'get' it, but after the day I've had . . . tree pretty, fire hot. :)
Comments from author:
Thank you!

'Live fats, die yo gnu' is the Dean's garbled version of 'Live fast, die young'; he had it as a slogan on the back of his leather jacket during the events of 'Soul Music'.

Review of chapter "Welcome to the Jungle" from JoeDineen
Review:
Love it, if you had managed a couple of footnotes it could have come from the pen of pterry himself.
Comments from author:
Thank you! I couldn't manage footnotes; the html code for superscript doesn't work here and neither does doing the superscript characters in Word and pasting it in.

Ah, understood the revised ending! Hope you write more of their adventures.
Comments from author:
Thank you! I will, one day; I want to write Faith versus Ninjas in Agatea.

Review of chapter "Welcome to the Jungle" from SlowMercury
Review:
This is a truly crazy awesome mix of people. I really like the punning; "Live fats, die yo gnu" was particularly bad (in the good way). And I'm enjoying how completely Little John is out of his depth. If he ever gets home, the rest of the Merry Men will never believe him. I bet he'll have an especially difficult time explaining the (vital) difference between an orangutan and a monkey. If you ever write more of this, I'd love to see it. Very funny.
Comments from author:
Thank you! I can't claim credit for 'Live fats, die yo gnu' - it's lifted straight from Pratchett's 'Soul Music', where the Dean had it written on the back of his leather jacket.
