Happy New Calendar Year!!!!!

     For most I think it will be the champagne and the mad round of kissing at midnight.  For me it's the fireworks.  It's also a good location in which to view them.    One of me favourite places is Moskow with St....

Overnight Natter

   " Here... you're sober! "    " It only happens when I sleep. "    " Hmph... I think I know what you mean... "    The selection for this next round is a drop of Amaretto.  Drop in the coffee, drop in the tea,...

X!

   Mizara and the rest of the new Characters turned up in the Officer's Mess for dinner in semi - formal wear more suited to Academia than attachment to an archaeological dig or shipboard in a working merchant vessel.  Tassarov...

Ode to Fizzy Water

I'm having a spot of trouble with a rather badly placed bubble. It's made of gas, won't go out me ass and its path it cares not to redouble!

Tassarov's in Love

   Captain Tassarov is having a very nice day.  The new academics arrived. One of them is delightfully female as well as being blessed with good common sense.    This will need a bit of explaining.  The players who'd lost...

Oh, Dear.....

   This session got off to difficult start, three characters went aside, got side tracked, went into a chambre and failed to look up before they did.  The three players are now in a room aside making new characters.....   ...

Nattering Ahead of the Session

   I've been looking but can't find it.  Probably was among the near thousand posts I deleted against the the change to T3.  No matter, here it is again:    Height - 1.73 metres    Weight -  12 stone    Hair -...

SRL 4338 010 - 019

SRL 4338 010    Bon Bon looked at the little box for a time.  It had a pretty in it like Mama's but it wasn't one of Mama's at all.  Bon Bon played with Mama's pretties often and had made a complete inventory of them in case one rolled...

Happy Humbug

    Everyone's gone home and to bloody bed. Peace, quiet, brilliant starlight, pint of Scotch ale, finally get to see me hookah for the first time since yesterday.  No lights on the street except mine and the...

Round Four

   " What're you about? " she demanded.    " Playing naim.  Ah, I have it, one scoop cappuccino, one scoop coconut, half a scoop of café latté, " I said, mixing.    " Entirely too wet, " she pronounced, looking at the...

It Snoweth

   I found her frowning thunderbolts at the snowfall and wondered what sort of day it would be.  She brightened up at my arrival and handed up a bottle opener.  Thus began round three of our amended resolve to stay politely and...

While Footie Face Sleeps...

   We polished off an entire case plus two, she and I.  I don't put me beer in little bottles, it goes in brown wine bottles, the type I generally associate with brandy.  I selected two cases' worth and we opened and gave...

Solstice with Miss Footie Face

   Cold, dark, overcast, sifting down the palest dry dusting of snow.....  Thus begins Winter.    I know a lady who does not top my shoulder, whom I would be quite surprised to learn weighs any less than twenty stone and...

Fool Woman!

   " All I wanted was to go get a tin of fluid for the hearth lighter before the one shop in town carries it closed.  Ten minutes to closing and most of that to lay grit...  I decided the grit could wait until I returned.  How was I...

Born Of Insomnia and Fatigue

   Never a good combination.  You are hereby forewarned...    Couldn't upload a bloody avatar for over twenty - four hours.  Not only did anyone fail to inform us work was going on may well have effect on that function, we...

Between Conveyances

   I have absolutely nothing must be done these next several hours.  I intend to lounge in front of this fire, enjoy the roses in my hookah and have room service bring up anything I might want for the next few hours.  Watching the...
