spectacular Thumbnail


  • noun An event whereby all participating personae fight to the (dead dead) death, and the winner is showered with oodles of points. Uncommonly among MUDspeke terms, there is a definite way to pronounce spectacular: "spec-TACK-er-ler"; indeed, it is sometimes written spectackerler. The origin of this is the Welsh accent of Phil Scott, the MUD1 internal who first suggested such an event. Also known as a speckie. Compare spekkie.
