Why this seems like just the sort of club to appreciate a daring tale of derring-do, but sadly I've not the time to tell the tale again so if I may direct your attentions to the egress below, which is simply an ingress in another direction, but I digress so please do see for yourself and ignore the cunning chicanery you might consider contemplating along the way and enjoy a drink instead.

Cheers!

*Ahem* I advise caution with this Idea. Tried it on the St. Elmo once, and the blighters kept trying to fly through  it!

Ah been meaning to apologise about that, we should have taken it as bit of a hint that the Ornithopters were steering around the clouds and not through them. I think we've still got one of your wireless telegraph aerials.


So That's where it's got to!

Hadn't forgotten you. The lads are just bringing it round now. Number 3 turret crew had adopted it as a combined hat stand and cricket scores receiver.

Empress of the 9th Parallel

may a lady, enter these premises?

I, Empress of the 9th parallel has claimed many a land in the name of my domain , 3rd, 4th and 7th Parallel are all under my protection. I tend to avoid the 1st, they smell rather bad and no one wants to talk to the 10th.
An excursion to the parallel dimension of terra..or Earth as its known to the Bay of Whitby was an fien excursion and much discussion over tea was had on land that could be owned.

I had my coronation recently where my royal name Empress Azkadelia was given to me, a name that was used by many a true Empress of our history.

Our Armada stands ready, with my flagship Leviathan, proudly at the front...or as i like to call her, Binky.

My Admiral,and personal escort, Lucian Dray has done me proud and made sure none of my enemies ever get close enough to try any attempts on my life!

I'm sure we could bend the rules slightly (Warlord-->Warlady); anyone with an aerial armarda deserves a place here.
Congratulations on the coronation, by the way. Did it pass of without a hitch or did anything untoward happen? I remember at mine the Air Kraken "Sniffles" , the pet of the previous monarch, didn't like me much. Luckily no-one was killed, but have you ever tried to get squid ink out of ceremonial robes? I tell you, it's a nightmare. Of course, I was impersonating the heir anyway, all part of an eleborate plot to "liberate" several tons of Laputan Amereto (a favourite of mine) from the kingdom. Sadly, that failed too and we were left empty handed when they realised i was an imposter.
Of course, I was very, very drunk.

good o! i have a family of mo-bats at my disposal (cute little bat crossed with monkey type creatures my scientists created) plus some furo hawks to take care of any dispatch/spy ferrets that may try to subert my plans.

The Coronation went off without any hitches....The Admiral had dispatched of the entire council and my siblings before it went ahead, huzzar!

May I join this fine club of yours?

Grand Admiral Lucien Tiberius Von Dray at your disposal, Warmaster Grand Tactician and Assasin (when the mood takes) to the Imperious 9th Parallel

In service to my Empress Azkadelia, I have claimed many a land in the name of the 9th... the 8th,7th,5th,4th and 3rd parallels have all been conquered , the 6th just is'nt worth bothering with at the moment, apart from some prime beach front property's there just is not much to gain from invading it , and the people of the 1st and 2nd parallels...well lets just say they smell...bad...there pygmies you know...they smear themselves with excrement.....we have no idea why and quite frankly don't wish to get close enough to find out!
I have also arranged the deaths of my most esteemed Empress's sisters, who were in line to claim the thrown before her and her entire ministerial cabinet.

In my spare time, when not conquering or devising tactical strategies, I excercise regularly...a healthy body is a healthy warlord afterall!
I am also a part time tinkerer off oddities and builder of dreams, I have a fondness for antiques and art, I believe you can learn much about the culture you intend to conquer from the study of it's art,music and architecture.
I enjoy long walks in the Imperial Palace with my Empress.
I like to drink Earl Grey with a hint of Vanilla...I find it quite soothing during those long fought battles, Tea is of course a most civilized drink.
I prefer a slug thrower to a ray gun, although I'd prefer a good old fashioned sword!

I think that about takes care of the introductions for now, I bid you farewell.

he took out the entire governing council to the sounds of the 1812 overture...found it to be one of his favourite terran tunes! I prefer Ride of the Valkries by a fellow called Wagner myself.

I heartily agree with that comment sir, never did like the smell of blood mixed with ozone, reminds me to much of Bacon, and that just makes me hungry!

Well, since I don't know whether to shoot you or offer to sell you munitions, I suppose I'll opt for offering to stand you to a drink...what's your pleasure? (And by Gawd, if you say "tea" I will shoot you!)

well, i Am partial to a fine brew of tea, but i have been known to drink a heady brew called Corky's white chocolate Vodka, its like a milkshake i had as a child, only more potent!

I also enjoy a glass of fine mead, it was given to me by the royal nannies and i have a taste for the finer brews.

Fair enough....don't mind a good Earl Grey or strong breakfast tea, myself, in the proper setting...but this is The Club!  "Steward! A "Corky's" for the Lady, if you've got it...failing that, a Vodka neat mixed half and half with sweet cream. I'll have my usual Absynthe, if you please. Thanks ever so much."

*sips Absynthe*

"Begging your pardon, Ma'am, but Her Majesty Victoria reigns here...although, one of her Titles is Empress of India, so I suppose that's not entirely inaccurate. Perhaps you are some High and Mighty Muckity-Muck where you're from...but if you and your Admiral have designs on this Empire, you'll find it a tough nut to crack, particularly since it's backed up by the R&D department of The Iron Furnace. Now, I shall be happy to supply you for your enterprises in other dimensions, but bear in mind, the best (and deadliest) of my inventions I keep to myself...keeps my clientele honest. The last time we demonstrated the Atomic Cannon, it caused what the rest of the world has come to refer to as "The Tunguska Event"....back at the Furnace, we call it "The Siberian Miscalculation." Rest assured, M'Lady, the AC is not the most powerful weapon in our Armoury...just the most powerful which I have chosen to reveal to the world.

gentlemen please, remember this club is situated on no man's land for a good reason. Also, can I remind everyone that the use of firearms, edged weapons, rayguns, artillery and dessert forks as weapons within the confines of this club is strictly prohibited. All violators will be shot; survivors will be shot again, regardless of station, rank or size of territory.
However, for those wishing to duel, we sell pistol sets, swords and cholera infected sausages behind the bar. Usual rules apply, just be sure to tell the management before commencing.

It's ok, I believe I checked in my Slug thrower and Sword at the attendants desk when I came in.

and surely in keeping with the current climate we should be selling swine flu infected sausages....cholera is so 2 months ago!

I say, Gladstone, surely you must know that I would never initiate anything so vulgar as a brawl within these walls...as you recall, when I first came to these environs, this club offered refuge to me when the Prometheus Club wanted to dissect me. I simply wanted it to be clear that when one such as I, who wore the scarlet in Her Majesty's service for more than half a century toasts the Queen, I mean Her Majesty Victoria, however lovely, and deadly, the present company might be, or how royal. You must also know that I'll do business with anyone, regardless of affiliation..business is business. Generally speaking, I believe arming both sides of a conflict with essentially the same gear keeps the playing field level. Thus the conflict is averted altogether, or becomes a protracted affair...either is good for business. Now this Empress and her Admiral seem decent sorts, intelligent and reasonable...just want them to be aware that this Parallel isn't "ripe for conquest," as it were. As to the R&D department of The Iron Furnace...let's just say that their most recent endeavours should not be tested on an inhabited planet..certainly not on this one!
"Steward! A round for the house, if you please. Put it on my tab."
