ah Xenos
i have heard alot of them its rather funny when small children pull you up on it
im here because i want to be out of the way of my mother shes trying to dress me up agin *shudders* pink frilly dresses and parasols are not for me. I prefer pants and guns and knives.

A lady after my own tastes!  I'm raising my lovely daughter the same way-she's currently running around the house with an airsoft pistol! 

As for me, I'm here because I enjoy the drink, the smoke, and the exceptional company *nods your direction.*  I'm most recently returned from the Hashamite Kingdom of Jordan, in service of the king-nasty affair that, won't bore you with my scars, suffice it to say Petra is quite the defensable stronghold!

Well gentlemen, let me tell you.

That is the tale my good fellows. I swear it is true in its entirety and will challenge anyone who says otherwise. As for the way we got rid of the dratted zeppelin, that is a tale for another day.

You sir, are my new favorite person!  *Proposes toast to Walkthebassline*

May those that love us, Love us.  Those that don't may the Lord turn their hearts.  If it be not in His will to turn their hearts, may He turn their ankles, that we may know them by their limping!

*Drinks toast happily*

Many thanks good sir. Many thanks.

Ah, it seems this bottle has been emptied. I shall require another. And would whoever is spinning the room please stop at once? Or speed it up. Nothing I hate more than a slow spin. Ah, but I've finished this pipe as well. That won't do at all.

*Refills pipe*

Now, does anyone else have a tale to regale us with?

"Well, I don't really think that the end can be assessed as of itself as being the end because what does the end feel like? It's like saying when you try to extrapolate the end of the universe, you say, if the universe is indeed infinite, then how - what does that mean? How far is all the way, and then if it stops, what's stopping it, and what's behind what's stopping it? So, what's the end, you know, is my question to you."

Is the room spinning clockwise, or anticlockwise?  Between us, we MIGHT be sober!  No need for that pipe, either, mate-here, have a pull of my shisha!  Old habits from the Mysterious East die hard, I'm afraid...

Ah, stories, stories...  Nothing quite so grand as the tale you told have I, my Aeronauts and I are fairly well low key these days-the SLAA discharged me some years back, and I've tried to keep a low key ever since...


Well now, you all know a bit more about the madness behind the man!

Now, if only I could remember some of Sgt. Brightraven's antics-that crazy Scot!  I remember once, while we were helping the Bedouins in a little town in the north of Jordan-and we were invited to, what transliterates to an "All you can eat" buffet.  Well, if you know Argus, then you know he's no small lad-no indeed!  So he keeps going up for more, over and over-and I mean, it's going on twelve or thirteen trips for him.  He just keeps stuffing his face, tawook, tabuli, hummas, you name it.

Well, after about an hour and a half, he's slowing down, but keeps right on.  Finally, I ask him "Argus, what in God's Name are you doing?"  he looked at me, deadpan, and asked "Sir, be this buffet all ya CAN eat, or be it all ya WANT to?"

The next day we helped hold of an invading tribe-Argus couldna keep his dinner down!  Ah, it was glorius!

There's always more drink in the cupboards behind the bar. The key's on a string.
Now, Xenos, legs up so I can sweep under your chair. It's gotten awful dusty since I was last here.

Good Xenos, the room seems to be spinning clockwise for me. Let us see if this fresh bottle of whiskey can fix things. And this shisha is quite good. I see why you smoke it so much.

Now come come sir, you must regale us with a tale. This Sgt. Brightraven sounds amusing, you yourself cannot be without some entertaining tales. Look here, your glass is empty. Let me fill it for you and you can regale us with a tale. The lady will not mind; I am sure she will admire the humility with which you tell us of your exploits.

I thank you for the drink, but my tales, I'm not sure how entertaining they would be-war stories seldom are.  Sad, yes.  Heroic?  Maybe.  I don't think there's anything particularly special about MY actions, but my CREW, now, they are the true heros!

Surely my tale wasna so sad as to run you all off?

*Looks around*  Blast, I do believe I've done it again...  I really should learn to tell happy stories!

(OC:  Sorry it's not funny or happy or whathave you-I'm just not really able to write happy stories for some reason.  Never really have been able to, either-I'm WORKING on some happy/funny ones for this very thread, but it's a hard, HARD job I tell ya...)

Hmm? What was that? Sorry good Xenos, I seem to have been lost in thought. Not to mention lost in this bottle. A fine bottling indeed. And now gone as well. In truth that was a moving tale; sad yes, but heroic none the less. Has not the eloquent Professor Harold Hill said "A coward dies a thousand deaths, a brave man...merely five hundred." Let us toast their bravery and their deaths.

*raises glass*

(OC: I had an advantage there; my story actually happened in a rpg I ran once upon a time. My players surprised me but we had a great time. Roll with what works. There's nothing wrong with a good tragedy.)

I've been sweeping. There's some fairly mighty dust bunnies over in some of the more forgotten corners.
And Ella, I sweep because no-one else will. It needs doing, and precious few people are willing to take on a Ecuadorian Dust Bunny, simply to tidy the place up.

And now, my good madam, I do believe it's YOUR turn to regale us with your antics, heroic, humorous, or otherwise!  *Pours you some more brandy*

Would you like me to call my associate James, good sir?  He's well known for his Dust Bunnie Eradication Program.

People call on him from MILES around to ask his advice on dealing with the little blighters...

They're going well. I'm managing to mostly keep them corralled, although there is the occasional escapee. They're off in the Baricoot Room. The masks and protective garments are on a peg outside the door.

Anybody know where a lass could get some Baileys around these parts? I'm afraid I have no saucy tales to offer in exchange but I will gladly pull up a chair and listen to any you might have for me  Cheesy.

Well, the "Liquor Locker" here seems to be pretty well stocked...  Why you'd want to drink that swill is beyond me-but to each their own, I do suppose.

We were all actually just waiting on Ella to regale us with her exploits, so you're just in time, my dear!

Well, I've enjoyed a shot of Bailey's in a cup of coffee. But one must say that the cocktail recipes for Bailey's are the raunchiest among the Cordials.

Now, let's see . . . Ella was in the Sudan . . . no . . . now where were we ?

*I* was in the Sudan, Ella is a Musketeer, Walkthebassline is an airship theif, and Victoria (not mine-just a coincidental name) just joined us. 

I think.

Ah yes, so be it . . . Xenos was in the Sudan. I need another drink to keep this all straight. By the bye, I spent some time in N'Guigmi on the Nigerien side of Lake Tchad -- just a stone's throw from Khartoum (if you have a rocket attached) -- I don't suppose you ever made it to that great body of water, did you, Master Xenos?

Now, as for Musketeers . . . I remember a certain Leftenant Ayres of the British East India Company who led a group of young redcoats who were still using the old .75 caliber Brown Bess muskets during the Sepoy Mutiny of '58 . . . ah well . . .
