[A] -Cameos from Deadpool and Ash Holt (characters from previous installments) were ultimately scrapped, as only a handful of users were reocurring (dontyoulookatme etc.) and so more confusion would have arisen.
-References in the abyss: Tropic thunder, 4th wall, gamefaqs, Dark Souls
-Despite the topic title, Dominion was never supposed to be a reoccurring game mode
-The domain name: Oddball Odyssey has been trademarked. This is not a confirmation.
-The Derived Says section was heavily shortened. Initially, the requests Derived would ask would be seemingly impossible unless you are familiar enough with some mechanics of the game and the game's engine. In other words, if you aren't well aware of myths busted or confirmed in Defendthehouse's Halo4 mythbusters, you wouldn't easily figure them out. This was cut due to difficulty.
-As per the improvised nature of the whole thing, the topic started without a villain. Derived's acceptance of the role can be seen on the first or second page, and after the halfway point, there were about 5-7 different ending outcomes due to locked in decisions. The ending seen is the second 'best' ending. One of the 'bad' endings would have had real life consequences to our hero.
-Any user could have requested a permanent character cameo without limit, including having custom dialogue PM'd to me and introduced into the story. Only Total_Reverse did so, and the riddle was selected by Iderivedx instead of any particular lines.
-The ending video had to be made in advance in case you guys lost prematurely. This, unfortunately, left out a lot of users who participated later on from appearing in the credits. My apologies ;_;
It was a real UZI. I shall never be visiting IGN again. --- If Jimmy's mom had four children, Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday, what is the fourth ones name?

AWH HELL NO
I'm afraid the hell is of the yes variety, Mr. Blade. You could have easily been a villain that Derived worked for, a badass who emerges from the abyss, or even have been made to romance one of the characters, most likely Incineration Canon. All you guys had to do was ask ;) --- If Jimmy's mom had four children, Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday, what is the fourth ones name?
