A shard is an incompletely digested food that eventually finds its way down and/or out painfully.

People that drink way too much often shard themselves.

Haha no Merriam you're wrong. The video game that raised me taught me a shard is one of several, sometimes as many as 99, that you have to collect to unlock rewards for optional side quests or open bonus map areas.

RIP my shining friend richmond, he taught me how to build a good modern still and make shine that "if you didnt make this youre good friends with the guy who did". Richmond shard his time, knowledge, and his shine generously, and he will not be forgotten...

Heh.  I remember Shards from Gemstone III in the 90s.

Which totally ripped off Rolemaster mechanics and the Shadow World milieu.  (I used RMSS in their Middle Earth setting.)

Which is why I was instantly hooked and ran up $400/mo AOL bills to play it.

What is the farking point of these stupid threads? It's almost as bad as someone's music stream of songs that start with the letter G.
