    I am afraid that 'sentacious' is a new word for me. Do you mean 'sententious'? Try Rudyard Kipling's 'If':

    Aramon Li: sigh, not used to this kb anymore

    GreiWar: Yer char is under yer butt

    DantNRan: She got a little to sentacious with us, so we sent her out the airlock.

    Aramon Li: LOL

    SavioursGM: Thanks, Greid, I was afraid I'd have to say it.

    We used to have ready access to an online dictionary, but something happened to it.

    (The word sententious is not one I use every day.)

    Well, the context helps a little. Bold? Sassy? Bothersome? (It looks like a made up word.)

    (I have a new nickname. I'm Ron the Mod. )
