Good Day, Gentlemen and Lady.

As I take stock of my own occupation (I am paid by various agencies, both private and Federal, to provide protection) I do believe I qualify for this Guild.

I would like to mention however that I know where both of my kidneys are and WILL be using them.

Righty-ho, sir!  Nothing to fear from me.  I'm well shot of that game.

The real money's in hearts, anyhow.

. . . Nope, not using that.

Quite so, welcome my good mercenary.

 Cheesy

I like your style, Mr Longeye.  Well, whatever floats your airship; live and let live, and all that.  Except, we're mercenaries, so I suppose we don't.

Do assassin-mercenaries count here?

If so, I offer my humble services....

Killing is optional, although I must admit that to me it seems like the option between a junker and a 1937 Rolls Royce Phantom series II . . . sure you CAN drive the junker, but why?

Still, assassins fit the category.  You 'handle situations' for money.  Welcome aboard!

Sweet...

Actually, I had as dream last night where I was playing a video game where the main character was an assassin.
I tired assassinating a prince multiple times by slitting his wrists whilst he slept...I failed this task so I went straight to slitting his throat.

Odd dream isnt it?

I have to confess, the only gun-oriented dream I had recently was one in which I was rescuing someone, as opposed to trying to kill them.  He was a prince/the president's son, I can't quite remember which.  I don't even think I was getting paid  Undecided

No pay?! This goes against the laws of the mercenary.

I once infiltrated yakuza and did a couple assassination jobs for them, posing as a yakuza assassin sent from the homeland.
This was especially impressive because im African American.

I once did something similar.  While it was not impressive in regards to my pretense, I was getting paid twice for the same jobs

I'll put myself forward for an audition
I'm all for concealed weapons
Close range, I know, but when you look nothing short of a gentleman people don't actually run away from you even though you intend on sinking some lead into their skulls

I think I should also mention I had a dream about this game, only Bailey was a woman...

I assure you, that incident in Singapore was all a misunderstanding.

By concealed weapons then, I presume you mean a firearm of some kind? Where do you keep it/them?

A good concealed weapon is a very traditional Scots one. Smiley
The sgian dubh, black knife, was traditionally kept concealed under the oxter (armpit) so that when one had to hand over the other weapons at the door of a host, that remained unnoticed. Smiley

I know, although, he was good-looking, and I'd take marriage to a prince as payment... Grin

Very impressive indeed.  I can only presume that the yakuza thought that sending an African American to pose as a Japanese assassin was so far out of left-field that no one would seriously attempt it...

Of course you are - anyone with the knowledge of such a fabulous sounding weapon as the sgian dubh (incidentally, do you know how that's pronounced?) is welcome!  And if you're not a mercenary yourself, I'm sure we could do with an armourer   Wink
