Ye Olde Aluminum Pole: General Chatter

Recommended Posts

Come and gather round the aluminium pole!

As you might imagine, the theme for the Holiday Challenge this year is A FESTIVUS FOR THE REST OF US

 

Introduce yourself here and gather round the pole! This is an all guild challenge, so we may be mingling with people we don't know from guilds we don't normally visit. There is either a roaring fire or a nice air conditioned atrium depending on your hemisphere and personal preference. The bar is full, and stocked with anything you want, could imagine, might want, and several things you can't imagine.

 

The first round is on me!

I thought this was going to be a pole dancing thing. Since I'm planning to be the right way up for the foreseeable future I will take a mulled wine please, sir!

I don't think that's been explicitly ruled out...

NICE! A all guilds challenge. We should raid a dungeon or take out a Leech King or something. 

 

Barkeep, a pint of the dark stuff please.

I'm looking forward to mingling with the other guilds members. This is a really nice idea. Mind you, that bare pole doesn't make me feel festive. It doesn't even look sturdy enough to tie our enemies or friends to.

Lately I've been getting into brandy, especially cognac.

I'm a cognac man myself.

Not to worry. Physics works....differently here in the guild hall.

Since this is an all-guild challenge, we combine all the best parts of our respective Guild Halls. From the Ranger Corps, you can appreciate the bartender knows what you want sometimes before you do and the guild hall has more cozy and/or hidden corners than Euclidean Geometry would seem to allow. What nice touches come from your Guild Halls?

Suddenly I see where having a monastery instead of a guild hall falls short. We have no bartender, and physics works in only the usual way.

skip slips into the vast party tent... if "tent" is the right word

 

his experiences utterly fail him.. he was getting use to the occasionally rowdy and busy inn- but that is Nothing like the vast crowd of people assembled in front of him.  the mere noise of hundreds of talking people assault his ears, as if they were in a great battle.   the sight of all those people so MANY of which he has never met, stupify him.

 

 he was he to find anyone in this vast crowds.  he didn't even know this many people LIVED, but that they all part of the rebellion group.

 

in time, the uneasy feeling diminished a little, despite its curious geometry; the bar tenders somehow managed to post themselves in convenient and accessable places towards the center.  the ranger's bartender in fact was a familiar face and grounded him a little; like an anchor in an angry sea.

 

in fact, the bartender, didn't look all that different from what he normally did, except that he was exceptionally busy.   many new faces thronged about him, dazzled by his amazing skills.  the bartender was specifically having a "Early-day special" with drinks not normally allowed by the laws of physics for only 2 quid a pint.

 

to press the point some really Loud person was really trying to push his luck asking for more and more ridiculous drinks;

"A Uraniun drink dazzling to the eyes- undergoing nuclear Fission- yet cool to the tough that sizzles and scintillates when drank and gives one the ability to give people around him a sunburn!"

 

I just hope, skip thought, that that guy would be considerate to people around him.  it would be no Fun to suddenly plunge into a black hole, or something.

 

but even so , losing just 1 or even 10 people could not hope to reduce this Crowd!

----

Aramis wanders over and noticing skip and his shocked unseeing demeanor; wildly gestures and yells for Skips' attention.

 

"SKIP ", he says!  " it so Good to see you!"

 

skip doesn't really know what to say.  

 

"Yeah", aramis says getting closer "it takes some Getting used to! but let us find a quiet corner and catch up!"  skip is only too glad to look for a vacant corner and happily there are many accessable and nearby places.....

 

---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

 

I am TGP, aka skip.  good to meet you guys!  its a very fun thought.  no guilds.  Just hanging together as we head towards christmas.

thanks for the invite.
