Probably my last word on this term pict...

In Response To: Re: Thanks to a friend, I have the original PICT n (Document)

: The word looks a little like "Bone", but it's almost certainly
: "Bobs".

I do believe you're right.

So, we now have improved text for the main body of the Jugg term, and a decent stab at the Warpeado. I've pretty much given up on the N-Cannon description; my eyes just don't resolve it.

For the record, main body:

The mailed fist of Battle Group 7's air combat wing
is the 723rd Heavy Air Cavalry, armed with the Dreaded
Utfoo Heavy Assault Craft. The World Killers, led
by Adml Tfear, are personally responsible for routing
the combined planetary armed forces of Nebulon as well
as handing several humiliating defeats to the Nar.
In the rather unwieldly language of the Nar it is
called "Gaze in Stunned Disbelief at the Tool of
Our Destruction." In Nebulonese it is known as "The
Big Floaty Thing What Kicks Our Asses." I believe
the Bobs call them Juggernauts.

Warpeado:

Warpeado

The Warpeado was
especially built
to rip the Nebulon
war ?machine? a new
asshole. It is a
high yield neutron
bomb propelled by
a single stage
solid fuel rocket.
It's ?caused? the
passing of many
a Nebulon...
it'll do you an
injury, mate!

I think it says a lot for Bungie that despite the extreme difficulty and unlikelihood of anyone actually managing to READ this, they still put it in. Far more fun than lorem ipsum... now, if I could only raise the tuits to do the Drone pict or the Defender one. Still, it's rather satisfying to have (even marginally) pushed back the boundary of our knowledge of Marathon.
