All the Tropes Made of Win

    Everything About Fiction You Never Wanted to Know.


    This page is intended to allow our various tropers to single out lines, edits, and entries made by other tropers that they feel are excellent examples of how to do the job. Be sure to mention what page you found the quotes on.

    If what you wish to give a win to is easily quotable, go ahead and copy/paste it here for posterity. This is a wiki, and even the most hilarious pages can change at any time: for instance, while Natter can be hilarious and win-worthy, an editor may be entirely justified in deleting it from the page. However, editors who use the compliments on this page to specifically seek out things to delete, do so at the explicit risk of looking like a kill-joy. And if the admins catch you at it—especially for MOW items which aren't natter—you're going to have some explaining to do.

    If you wish to give a win for something that has been on a page for a long time, it might be worth to do a quick check-through to see if it has already been nominated. Of course, no one minds getting a redundant win nomination.

    Finally, if you're a refugee joining us from TV Tropes, your MOW score there and your MOW score here are two different numbers.

    In the game you start on Lave Station with 100 credits and a lightly armed trading ship, a Cobra Mark III. From here you seek fame, fortune and money via one of the many, many, different options open to you. You can:

    • Collect bounties, which is dangerous.
    • Become a pirate, which is more dangerous.
    • Trade, the different planets have different economy types and tech levels that make this surprisingly complex.
    • Perform military missions, when they come up and if you like death.
    • Mine asteroids, if you like comas.

    All the characters, except Dante and Virgil, are dead and in Purgatory cleansing their sins.
    More astute readers may notice that each level of the mountain is really a veiled metaphor for a sin, and everyone who is on these individual levels seems to be suffering for something. It's not a great leap of logic to assume that the suffering is their penance for the sins they committed in life, and they are on this mountain to atone for their sins. Thus, the Mountain in Purgatorio may appear to be a mountain, but is really Purgatory.

    • ...wait a minute.
