I noticed something funny while roaming the site.

I've seen that new merchandising from the Ender's game armies is now available. I had already seen in previous visits the Dragon and Rat T-Shirts and was surprised to find out that two new armies have been included, Phoenix and Salamander.

O.k, now check this link:


http://quizilla.com/users/Laenan/quizzes/In%20which%20army%20should%20you%20be%3F%20Ender's%20game%20quiz/


It is a quizz I posted in this forum a few months ago and was honoured to have OSC taking it. Now go through it (answer and have fun) and check the images of the results (to see all the images go down and click the see all results button). And, surprise! Salamander and Phoenix images are almost identical to the ones included in the official merchandising.

I'm not claiming anything, the images are not mine. I got them from a friend who found them in some guy's personal website. But I am shocked to find them here and I'd like to know how it happened.

maybe "some guy" was Orson Scott Card. [Wink] I was a Rat. Was Ender, or Bean, ever in Rat Army?

Bean may have been, but Enders was only in Phoenix and Salamander before he got command of Dragon.

What are you saying!!! <shocked, shocked shocked to death> [Wink] Ender WAS in Rat Army, Dink Meeker wanted to have him. It was after the Salamander and before the Phoenix.

Of course Ender was a Rat!! (Fave part of the story, hehe...)

Anyway, I'm quite sure "some guy" is not OSC. And it doesn't make sense, the Rat and Dragon graphics are completely different from the ones I used. They were designed long before I posted the images here. Only the new ones, Phoenix and Salamander are alike.

Funny, isn't it?

The 'guy' might be Darian Robbins. He's the one who created the designs that OSC is now selling and he has (or had) a website with some of the artwork on it.

You could never beat Dragon Army. Period.

Condor - black, white, black
Rat- black, brown, ???

I think that was all mentioned in the actual books, but you could guess at some others, like Badger and Tide and Scorpion.

What I want to know is how come Centipede Army isn't on the aptitude thingy. Centipedes rock my socks off.
