Gotta go. As I wrote this, someone drove into the parked Tiger and smashed it to the ground, then drove away.

Pics to follow, never fear. And a nice lady sitting outside got their license plate #.

That sucks.

Thanks for letting us know, though. 'Cause, it is important to let us know when you are about to chase down some hit and run bastards.

Starsky and ARG.... StARGksy and Hutch.

ARG receives the cycle-masher's information from the nice old NPC lady. Does he:

A: Turn it in to the police, file a report, and let them do their job

B: Figure "eh, it's not worth the hassle," and drown his sorrows in rum

C: Rent a monster truck, drives to the offender's house and smash HIS favorite mode of transportation in pure "an eye for an eye" fashion

It's like a Choose your own Adventure novel!

Okay, casting about somewhat for a game to run, just sort of turning things over in me teeny brain, I've un-Archived "Quest for the Mantle!", an early effort of mine that didn't get anywhere owing to flaky players. But the setting, I think, still has potential. It's kind of 'anything goes' straight fantasy in a political situation that's possibly best described as 'barely controlled chaos.' And the thing is, I still think it's funny as all get-out. Here's some quotes from the Information:


Quote:
Originally Posted by ridin gaijin

The Capitals are usually populated by about 50,000 souls; other cities shown on the map have anywhere from 10,000 to 25,000. (District capitals are larger because of the jobs government brings: clerks, lawyers, printers, hospitality and fine dining, grift, graft, blackmail, espionage and gossip.) Towns of smaller size are everywhere but not shown on the map. The Districts are as follows:

1. Chelu. Capital, Chelu. [...] Its inhabitants are more independent and hardy than the average citizen, as well as being less literate. Chelu's orchards and fields produce apples, pears, root vegetables, millet, and great quantities of cut-rate vodka.

3. Hander. Capital, St. Oros. Handerians are always the first against the wall when the Clementians invade. Over the centuries this has led to a certain pragmatic hatred of outsiders. Since they are also the first over the wall when Sal-lucere invades Clementia, Handerians are also known as wily opportunists. Either way, they're a tough lot. [...]

4. Bel Parge. Capital, Bel Parge. [...] They are among the most literate and urbane citizens, eager consumers of the news, scientific advances, industrial innovations, libel and slander that comes from the triple cities.

5. Crossroads. Capital, Armet. [...] It's a nice place to relax and get away from the bustle of the cities [...] except in February and August, when the bi-annual Whiskey and Beer Fests are held for three weeks at a time. Then it's not so quiet; and visitors need no longer wonder where the hell all that wheat and barley goes, when there are so few cows around and the bread is of such poor quality.

6 and 7. Magmeit and Riversmeet. [...] Coastal plantations produce plentiful crops of sugar cane, some of which is not even turned into rum.

8. Riverwash. Capital, Midway. [...] The eastern hills are infested with religious maniacs, dwarves, halflings, gnolls, goblins and other sub-humans. The royal barracks here are the most heavily garrisoned and least desirable in the country. Traditional methods are still used by the peasantry to express legitimate grievances with the government, including demonstrations, unruly demonstrations, and riot. Troops unlucky enough to be posted here are tough professionals especially trained in the arts of crowd control.

...Eh, I still think it's got legs. Maybe not though.

Dude, you got killed off because you stopped posting. Like the others who caught it (except 'Stalkers, sort of). Regardless, it'll be good to have you 'round the site again. How's NYC?

Yeah, I'm in Japan right now, actually.

You've heard of Japan, right?
