Ye New & Fancy Leaky Tankard: Ranger Guildhall Chat

Whilst humming a jaunty tune, Cheetah doffs his fancy hat with a flourish.  From within the hat he withdraws a smallish metaly box.  The box is sparkly and has blinky lights.  Cheetah dons his fancy hat once more and sets the metaly box on the bar.  Seating himself upon a bar stool, Cheetah fishes a sonic screwdriver from his inside coat pocket.  He points the sonic at the box.  The sonic hums.  Cheetah hums.  The sparkly metaly blinky box begins to hum, too......

Does it go "ding" when there's stuff?

If only it were so simple.

 

Cheetah sets down the sonic.  He reaches into another pocket and pulls out a rubber banana.  He sets that on the bar and from another pocket pulls out what may once have been a small 2-stroke side-draft carburetor.  He sets that on the bar and from yet another pocket pulls out a paperclip.  "That's the ticket!" he says with a smile.  Holding the sparkly blinky metaly humming box in one hand, he uses his other and and his teeth to straighten one end of the paperclip.  He then inserts the straightened end into the blinky metaly sparkly box and gives it a vigorous jiggle.  Upon receiving this treatment, the humming coming from the box increases slightly in pitch and decreases slightly in volume.  Cheetah looks perplexed for a moment.  Then he shrugs and says, "Close enough!"

Shaar watches Cheetah from across the room.  "What a weirdo," she mutters, as she quietly continues dressing her 6 foot tall video game lizard in a variety of fancy and impractical outfits.

Fun fact: When I was a kid (11?  12?) we used to get catalogs for puzzles, like, regular puzzles and those wooden 3d ones and stuff, and there was a replica of this sucker where one side slid open and you could store treasures in it, and I had it for like 15 years until I moved and lost it....

Cheetah once again removes his fancy hat from his head.  He slides the sparkly blinky metaly humming box into the hat.  There is a soft but audible click.  Cheetah puts the hat back on.  You suddenly realize that not only is Cheetah's hat very fancy, it's totally perfect.  No other hat could be more appropriate for this time and place.  If asked later, you wouldn't be able to say exactly what the hat was, only that it was just exactly right.  You feel so good about Cheetah's hat, you start to feel pretty good about Cheetah, too.  Cheetah is an all-right dude.  You can trust Cheetah.  Cheetah is your friend.....

That is the magic of the hat after all, isn't it?  Everyone sees the perfect hat, no matter how they define that.  Although actually sounds like something that would be standard issue around here LOL.

Thom looks over at Cheetah, "Nice hat."

Turning back to his drink Thom quietly mutters to himself, "I think it is time for a wee dram or three. I am too old for glamours."

Face brightening Thom looks over at his good friend T2SarahConnor, "Another round and another tune gorgeous?" Pouring two shots of the good whiskey from the bottle as he speaks.

Nova hesitantly steps over the threshold and into the room. Her curious eyes flit over the faces of her new companions. She stands still, trying to decide if she should try to understand why people are talking about hats or if she should retreat into the shadows of some quiet corner. 

 

Uh, hello, I am Nova. After over a year of wandering and adventuring, I have decided it is time for a change of pace. I am joining the Rangers this challenge. I look forward to getting to know you all.

Welcome Nova! It's best not to ask about the hats... it's a long story! Grab a drink and pull up a chair - there's plenty of corners and alcoves to choose from, but equally there's plenty of space by the fire!

Welcome! And I still don't understand about the hats.  I just quietly don my explosion-proof cloak when I see them.

What is there to be prepared for? Rangers doing odd things? Been gone for a couple of years but that is still normal for the Ranger Guild Hall. Ranger brain is another normal and familiar thing. Roleplay writing is still happening.

So ya know situation normal, strange as frog* (anger management class for the other f word).

Of course I am an Aussie, and we are pretty chill about being surrounded by things that can kill you as soon as look at you. Fancy hats is nought compared to dunny seats with teeth.

A quote from Terry Pratchett's Discworld, in which the continent XXXX is a stand in for Austraila:

Quote

when Death requested a book about the dangerous creatures of XXXX from his library, he was subsequently hit by a large pile of books consisting of the various volumes of "Dangerous Mammals, Reptiles, Amphibians, Birds, Fish, Jellyfish, Insects, Spiders, Crustaceans, Grasses, Trees, Mosses and Lichens of Terror Incognita", the total books going up to Volume 29C Part 3, while a request for information about the harmless creatures merely produced a note saying "Some of the sheep".
