    Need Knight , Need Enemy .. Need .. Beanpole ?

    Post by ZikoLogiKa NL on Thu Jul 05, 2012 11:46 pm

    So according to the internet ,

    a beanpole is a stick used to support a growing beanplant

    or

    a slang term for a person who is both tall & thin.

    Ive never even heard the word before & English is not my native language

    but Ive always wondered why we could write this word on the ground with the orange soapstone.,

    :suspect:

    Need Soldier , Need Knight , Need Enemy .... Need Beanpole ?

    Presumably it's referring to using the array of rather long poking sticks we get to use in lordran.

    The dragonslayer spears and pikes of the world.

    Yeah I thought that too at first ,

    I even thought it referred to a washingpole for a moment .,

    but it is selectable under the characters tab ., meaning it would have to be a ''tall & thin person''

    Or do you think they just mean a ''spear wielder'' ?

    Since they included "Fatty" in the character choices I am guessing they wanted something opposite of that and went with "Beanpole".

    It seems the choice of descriptors is deliberatelly quirky and vague to allow for jumbled interpretations and uses. I am guessing it was their goal to do this, so the meanings of messages would never be 100% clear, other than the most basic such as "enemy ahead".

    Ok, I can understand why "try holding with both hands" at Queelag and Gwynevere, but "Need beanpole"...

    Beanpole is the closest translation for the japanese word for "Skinny", it is just a bad interpretation job.
