This applies to all subsequent comments/posts under this topic.

OK,  it appears we may be here for a while so I am opening this up for discussion.

I loaded a story into the new forum. Actually I had to do it by posting and posting and posting.
One post will accept 20,000 characters.
We've logged WAY  more than that in the 56+ pages of writing.

Now...any ideas?
Do we wait to see if we have our old home back?
Shall we do a synopsis and then post the last page or two?

Jack's last post and mine got lost in the crash and burn but we both have them stored in our computers.

Everyone is logged on here except Lilaney and she can't be far behind.

This is now open for discussion.

I think, if we do anything here, it might be prudent to just give a synopsis and the last few pages, and then go from there...it would be too hard to load it all here!

I don't think we should wait, for fear we lose our momentum and aren't able to gain it again...I mean, we've had "dry spells" but I don't want it to be a Dead Man's Drought! If we get our old forum back pretty quickly, I don't think it'd be to hard to carry things over that we've developed here, and if we don't ever get it back, well...we have to move on,  I suppose...

Good points, Elinor!

That's why you are my scribe.  :-*

I agree....we maybe do the last few pages so we don't lose our momentum.
Each of us should have a copy of it, thanks eternally to Mad Jack.

If we do a synopsis, then we can do the last two pages or maybe when we got on the El Lobo del Mar and take it from there.

"Over? Did you say over?
Nothing is over until we decide it is!
Was it over when the German's bombed Pearl Harbor?
Hell no! And it ain't over now! Cause when the going gets tough.. The tough get goin'. Who's with me?"


And we're just the guys to do this, I agree with our young scribe, let's do it!

I just hope I can remember where I hid El Lobo's scribe! :o

Or for that matter where the Hell Old Pew lives at! Amazing what getting clobbered by a lucky shot will do to your memory. ;D ;)

Mad Jack, if you want to start the new DMT 2 with your lost post and I add mine, then we can go from there. I can transcribe the last few pages of DMT1 along with a synopsis of sorts.

Pssst! Black Jack! He's hidden in the bilge! And old Pew is on La Ville du Traitre aka Hell on Earth!

I probably will transcribe in narrative form the time we got on El Lobo which would include the battle and the subsequent injuries.

Is this agreeable?
All in favor say 'Aye!'
All not?
Prepare to walk the plank!  :D

Naw. I figured someone might look for him there. Them Lin Qui are a sneaky lot, and I took quite a bit from their book of secrets. ;)

Accually, I do hope we get the last few pages.....because for the life of me I can't remember what Chinese names I used!!! :o :D :D ;)

La Ville du Traitre I remember....but Ol' Pew's place is a bit harder to find there....probably why the blind old codger is still alive there. ;)

And to add to Mad Jack's promo:

Don't miss our next exciting episode! Same pirate time...same pirate channel!

Hey, "The Red Green Show" lasted 15 years, so I figure we've got a pretty good crack at it.

By the way, do we get residuals?  Besides the gunk in the bottom of my coffee cup?
Title: Re: Comments on Dead Man's Tavern
Post by: Blackjack Roberts on May 12, 2008, 03:03:50 PM
Rum does tend to separate the solids out of a cup of coffee quick.

Actually, I think we have a better chance than "The Red and Green show"....some of the things we've pulled so far would have gotten us fined, and canceled, by the FCC.....if not outright keelhauled!!

Someone man the bowchasers.....I think I see an FCC censor off the starboard bow!!! :P

Hi All,

I would to get into the Dead Man's Tavern but I'm not sure how start. Any suggestions?
Title: Re: Comments on Dead Man's Tavern
Post by: Captain Jack Wolfe on May 16, 2008, 11:50:40 AM
Hopefully this latest move will be the last of our site-to-site ping-ponging.  I'm getting seasick...

Hey, wait a minute!  Who installed the infinite improbability drive when I wasn't looking?


For those not familiar with Douglas Adams' The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy, here's a bit about the Infinite Improbability Drive:

Quote
The Infinite Improbability Drive is a wonderful new method of crossing vast interstellar distances in a mere nothingth of a second without all that tedious mucking about in hyperspace.

It was discovered by a lucky chance, and then developed into a governable form of propulsion by the Galactic Government's research team on Damogran.

This, briefly, is the story of its discovery.

The principle of generating small amounts of finite improbability by simply hooking the logic circuits of a Bambleweeny 57 sub-meson Brain to an atomic vector plotter suspended in a strong Brownian Motion producer (say a nice hot cup of tea) were of course well understood - and such generators were often used to break the ice at parties by making all the molecules in the hostess's undergarments leap simultaneously one foot to the left, in accordance with the Theory of Indeterminacy.

Many respectable physicists said that they weren't going to stand for this - partly because it was a debasement of science, but mostly because they didn't get invited to those sort of parties.

Another thing they couldn't stand was the perpetual failure they encountered in trying to construct a machine which could generate the infinite improbability field needed to flip a spaceship across the mind-paralysing distances between the furthest stars, and in the end they grumpily announced that such a machine was virtually impossible.

Then, one day, a student who had been left to sweep up the lab after a particularly unsuccessful party found himself reasoning this way:

If, he thought to himself, such a machine is a virtual impossibility, then it must logically be a finite improbability. So all I have to do in order to make one is to work out exactly how improbable it is, feed that figure into the finite improbability generator, give it a fresh cup of really hot tea ... and turn it on!

He did this, and was rather startled to discover that he had managed to create the long sought after golden Infinite Improbability generator out of thin air.

It startled him even more when just after he was awarded the Galactic Institute's Prize for Extreme Cleverness, he got lynched by a rampaging mob of respectable physicists who had finally realized that the one thing they really couldn't stand was a smartass.

So, who's pouring?

Post by: Blackjack Roberts on May 16, 2008, 03:54:39 PM
I think I'd rather deposit me penny, and spend me time at the Cafe at the End of the Universe, meself. ;)

42? I always thought there was something fundamentally wrong with the Universe. ;D ;D

By the way...I need someone from the Knight Hammer crew to go ashore with me so I can keep my word about not going alone. 

Any takers?

PS: Notice I didn't say squat about staying in sight of the ship? ;) ;D

Still I'd have ta think about it fer a spell. As one accustom ta havin' a price on me head, I'd be a bit leery a placin' wenchie in that kinda danger. Especially when I'm not exactly up ta fight'n snuff completely, yet meself.

*Oh..I have SUCH a wenchmouth for that one, Black Jack!"

Mad Jack, better get your Excedrin. You are about to have a migraine! Some days it doesn't pay to go to Hell on Earth with Honour.

*how about Heaven on Earth?*
Title: Re: Comments on Dead Man's Tavern
Post by: Welsh Wench on May 20, 2008, 06:14:04 AM
As you all can see, I took what Mad Jack had sent me and took the story from the point that the Knight Hammer was stolen and we had to join with El Lobo.
Because DMT is really just a series of storylines combined into one. I thought this was a good jumping off point (figuratively)--MASON, GET AWAY FROM THAT GANGPLANK, THERE WILL BE NO DIVING OFF THE SIDE OF THE SHIP!--and we can continue with DMT2.

If it is agreeable to everyone, I suggest that DMT1 be locked so no one gets confused and posts into that.

Do we have an accord? Doesn't matter. What Captain Wench says, goes...
Just kidding...... ;D

I'm afraid you did, Brother Timothy.  You haven't hit your head recently, have you?

I'm all for locking the old story as well.  Cuts down on any potential confusion.

I'll pass on the Excedrin, Honour darling, but I'll gladly take you up on that "heaven on earth" idea!  :D

Thank you WW, and Jack for keeping me updated until my poor redneck computer (etch-a-sketch) and I could upgrade.

So, we have weighed anchor and are waiting for daylight prior to taking a small boat ashore.
Cool!
BlackJack, thank you for the compliments! She is a daft hand at what she does.

BlackJack, I am up for it. Let's go ashore!

MY WEEK?! AWWW!! *pout*
Um, couldn't we just get a bell or something?
LOL, just kidding.
I am certain that Blackjack and I can keep a gander on her out and about..

Thank you, WW and john!

Blackjack, thank you for the new toys! I am certain they will come in handy.

We'll get ashore soon enough to cause mischief.
I am wondering, who actually runs the island? Or, is it a 'have at it all?' sort of port?
I know there is no honor among thieves but, wouldn't it seem propersous to have a core
of something that keeps the permanent occupents from truly sinking the island through their
neglect and mischief-making? Like Guilds, or something unionized?
*Just a thought, if someone has already worked this out, I look forward to the posting!*

Title: Re: Comments on Dead Man's Tavern
Post by: Captain Jack Wolfe on May 22, 2008, 09:23:00 AM
Awww, Lil!  You're actually going to make me think this through?!  ;)

I'd always envisioned it as a Mafia structure; a kingpin (who we could refer to as "The Governor" or "The Commodore") and his lieutenants, employing just enough control to keep things from imploding. But all in all an extremely laissez faire environment, tempered by the "Pirate's Code".  The bulk of the common elements one would find in a ship's articles serve as de facto laws, enforced by the "citizenry".

How does that sound?  Close to what you're looking for?

I'm putting this model forward because it's similar to the arrangement on Madagascar circa 1700.  I tend to sidestep the whole guild thing because I'm terribly allergic to them.

What does everyone think?

Martin- Thank you for what you wrote with Lil Puddin'.  It did my heart good.  How I miss that chatty little fuzzball.
Title: Re: Comments on Dead Man's Tavern
Post by: Hibernian on May 22, 2008, 12:35:54 PM
That sounds workable. There could also be lieutenants or sub-bosses who are working the population in the different parts of town. I could see us having to deal with one person at the docks for repairs and a totally different group for supplies. Of course that also leaves room for several different "currents" operating below the surface, I'm sure all the major powers have their agents and informers in place.

Leaving Carolina tommorrow afternoon, see everyone at the faire Saturday morning.

This weekend is bringing, the hot, the humid and the possibility of rain with it.
yay, last three days of Faire!

BlackJack, that works. It was an idle curiosity. i do not believe we will be in port long enough
to truly delve into the inner workings.
But, a rough sketch will keep us all on the same page, as it were.

Where is that Tardis when you need it? Or perhaps what is needed is a "bag of holding" from Dungeons & Dragons. Little bag with a big inside that could hold all of Wench's boots and still be carried in one hand.

That makes me think of Hermione in the last Harry Potter book :) I won't go any farther, just in case there's anyone who hasn't read that book yet.

I think we'd definitely need that kind of bag for all of Wench's boots  :D

Ah yes, the boots that were made for walking! They looked great, although, I don't know how you manage to walk in those heels. Actually I never realize how much of a Mutt and Jeff couple Brother Timothy and Wench are until I saw the writer's picture. Still what a great picture for the hard back edition of DMT coming out this fall.  :D One of these days we're going to manage to find a date and a fair at a neutral site, in other words no one has to worry about being the host or on cast, where the whole DMT team can be there and in character. Now that will be a picture and a weekend for the ages.

Martin & Jack, two nice posts, I love the comment on how long the pilot's been the best in the business. Martin the comparison of boat handling skills with our lovely Captain was a good touch. You guys never fail to bring a smile to the face when I read your posts.

It appears the command crew is pairing off for when we hit port. Good luck with Captain Wench Jack, don't forget to bring your Master Card and Lady Visa...

We really should try again for a group picture.  Having the whole gang together would be a blast!  Especially if Wenchie gets near the guns.

Question for Blackjack: How likely is it for Julian to recover from whatever you gave him enough to recover his faculties and decide to find Elinor? I ask because Elinor's definitely staying on ship, unless someone can persuade her to leave...
Title: Re: Comments on Dead Man's Tavern
Post by: Blackjack Roberts on June 04, 2008, 10:27:41 PM
Not likely, Luv.

It would be at least another day or two before it would wear off on it's own. We should be back aboard by the evening, and Blackjack will feed him enough of the antidote to restore him to motion, and wipe out his memory of the past few days.

They used to feed the zombie enough to make them completely forget their whole life, but I don't think that would be very good.

Check your ren mail, Luv. ;) ;D

Alright, just so you can plan it out, I'm taking Kate and Brother Timothy through the crowd on the pier and heading to St Dimas. I will try to be careful, but I'm sure a monk is not one of the usual sights seen on this lovely vacation isle.

Are you sure this is Club Med?

Post by: Blackjack Roberts on June 09, 2008, 04:02:08 PM
I thought it a fair exchange, Brother Timothy. I'm so glad I didn't upset any plans you may have had, that worried me a bit. In many ways it was of your own design.

First the flash of light from the church steeple. I wondered what could cause such a reflection of sunlight?? Some kind of metal. Whats on top of a church steeple? Usually a cross.....maybe a gold cross? A special cross?

Then when the vile citizens of Le Ville du Tratire were suddenly cowed by your appearance I had to wonder. Why? Just the sight of a monk wouldn't be enough to quiet such an evil lot as these characters are.

Again you provided the clue...the church of St Dimas....a special cross that none of the greedy scalawags would dare touch? What if Brother Timothy's order had provided him with an exact copy???

Yep! That would do it! ;) ;D

Darius: Captain Spleen..um...there seems to be a slight problem with your ship....
 
(http://i37.photobucket.com/albums/e65/welshwench/TNRF5-27-07244.jpg)

 
Wench: Oh, it was easy, Nickie! Just a few quick turns and I was able to parallel park the ship. Of course there is always a little glitch here and there....
 
(http://i37.photobucket.com/albums/e65/welshwench/DSC_0052.jpg)

 
Captain Spleen: OK, SO WHAT THE HELL HAPPENED TO MY SHIP???
Captain Wolfe: Um..I'm not really sure...I mean, I was nowhere in the vicinity...but there might be someone who knows the answer to that....
 
(http://i37.photobucket.com/albums/e65/welshwench/2528913697_a8578478f4.jpg)

 
Captain Wolfe: Wench, dear...there seems to be a gentleman that wants to see you about his ship.
Wench: I'm busy. Tell him I'm doing the dishes or something...oh, alright! But I didn't do anything wrong. No, not me...I was nowhere near that ship.
 
(http://i37.photobucket.com/albums/e65/welshwench/2529743716_a3ea7dca22.jpg)

Captain Spleen: So...WHERE'S MY SHIP?

(http://i37.photobucket.com/albums/e65/welshwench/Whosyerdaddy2.jpg)


Wench: Oh, don't make me laugh! How would I know?

Jack? How about a little support here? OH, FORGET IT! I see you are busy!

(http://i37.photobucket.com/albums/e65/welshwench/IMG_0025.jpg)


Spleen: I  KNOW YOU KNOW WHERE IT IS AND I WANT TO KNOW RIGHT NOW!

I liked it, it was a well done write..

It ammused me that Blackjack hugged Lil, to keep the Pirates from bothering her.
(that speaks volumes about how notorious your character is)
From personal experience, Sailors don't care about small details such as that.
Age, weight, size never mattered, they would 'throw out a line' (pardon the pun) just to see what happened. Sometimes they simply did it for the practice and to ammuse the woman in question.
Or, the women of 'questionable ammusement'.

I have had to tell many a wolf in sailor's clothing to "reel it back in; your chain's draggin'"
A good sea story happened on the 2001 Med Cruise when one of my E-nothing's caught more than even he could handle. And an important moral was learned by all.

Great writing everyone! *hugs*

Thank you about the picture, remember Paul takes pics and cleans them up a hair before he posts them. That is why his are the most popular of the Scarby pics.

This is your captain speaking.  You remember, the co-captain with what's-her-name?  Please take note of a change in the amount of time we're to stay in La Ville du Traitre.  The time for the ship to be ready was stated as FOUR days in the post with Ahmet the Turk.  In the interest of advancing the original storyline of pursuing and recovering the Knight's Hammer, the time is being shortened to TWO days. 

Make sure you settle up at the gift shop and take a potty break before we go.

Besides, Wenchie's already exhausted my line of credit at the bazaar.   :o :D

'What do you mean, you want 12.00 a yard for this silk? Why, I can go to the booth of Hancock and get it for...HOLY CRAP! The ship is leaving without me!'

*Wench shoves the silk back into Omar the Tentmaker's arms and runs towards the dock waving her hands*
STOP! WAIT!

OW! Damn boot heel!

*Wench LIMPS towards the dock waving her hands*
STOP! WAIT!


OK so Mad Jack has the keys to the ship...

I agree that we should move the story along. Otherwise my Visa is no good we will only get in trouble.

Amazing how some bribery will hurry craftsmanship along....

I've remailed Hibernian to make sure he knows we're bugging out early.  I've been on the bad side of that monk before, and I'd rather not have my ribs tenderized again.

[For those just tuning in, please jump to the top of the page for a special announcement regarding our rescheduled departure.  Be sure to follow the Red concourse to gate B 13.  If you have more than one carry-on item like Wenchie usually does, the gate attendant will check them into stowage for you.  Thank you for choosing El Lobo for all your piracy needs.]

Briggs and Lil will be the porters for this improved scheduled launch.
BlackJack, I have a questionable sea chest of yours, your hat (BTW, ever heard of Tide?)
and a bag of something I picked up along the way.
If anyone wants to claim this bag for a purpose they need in their particular writing blip, take
it. It is there for your whimsy.
I think this tiny island was the premier to what is now called Neimann Marcus...

As far as it is concerning me-

Elinor has to convince me to wear that hideous scarf.
What I figure is we have to get back to the ship that night as there is NO Holiday Inn-Ette Central in La Ville du Traitre.
At least not one with a pool.
Not even a continental breakfast.

Tip off: I do have to have an encounter with someone from my past. May be a  surprise there.

Oh! My favorite is Lala! Although, I like Tinky-Winky's fashion sense. Personally, I think Po needs to grow up and Dipsy, well, he has 'issues'.
I could see them on Dr. Phil some day...

I would like to see the cloth that inspired the scarf!
Never said I had any fashion sense.
Or, had an inkling that some things that are produced by the fashion world should never be seen
in public.

Good morning all,

"I'm back."

Sorry about the lapse, things got a little hectic with part of the Scout troop on the Appalachian Trail (they managed to walk across the state of Maryland), a son on staff at Scout camp in the North Carolina mountains, the Hibernian softball team actually winning two games in a row (right now you're probably thinking of brown robed monks playing softball), and of course the day time job that pays the bills is getting a bit involved.

Ok, I've filled in that slot I was holding, will post again tonight with my trio at St. Dimas and finding something concealed within the walls of the sanctuary, this will then leave me in position to make a third installment which will include a mad dash back to the ship.

"Oh boy!"

But now we can always find it at the top!

So...thanks to whoever suggested we get sticky. Stickied.

Elinor is on vacation so she asked me to post the next one and she will delete her reserved spot.

Now, Hibernian...do you intend to drive the moles away like St Patrick did the snakes?  ;)

Yesterday, I edited the first post in DMT II to include a link back to the non-stickied DMT I (http://www.renaissancefestival.com/forums/index.php?topic=780.0) thread.  This will allow our readers (especially new ones) to easily acquaint themselves with the story.

WW is headed back to the ship with Briggs and Duckie in her wake
Mad Jack is looking at her hips
Hibernian and Kate are solving the mystery of St. Dismas (that is so neat!)
Mad Jack is still watching WW's hips
Lil and Martin are arriving just in time to watch the ship being pillaged by colour-blind pirates.
Blackjack is helping his cousin somewhere on the east side of the island.

I think that is how our lovely Monday has begun.

WW used the word in her last post, the urban dictionary has the following definition:

1.  piratess  
 Referring to the modern day Women Pirate, IE: Not a Wench, in so much as; she the Piratess considers herself to be equally qualified in the pirating profession and/or genre,as any male pirate. Not as a "play thing" or "pretty poppet" to be "plundered."
She will most likely be well armed and can usually be found captaining or navigating the ship. Certainly not a woman to be trifled with.

Mary Read, Anne Bonney, Grace O'Malley and Shi Xainggu are all wonderful examples of a true piratess.

With El Lobo's crew complement, the best we could manage is a month, maybe a bit more if we go to half rations, before needing to take on more supplies.  I doubt we'll need to test that any time soon.  *fingers crossed*

Once we start the search for El Dorado as originally planned, however, then it will get interesting!  ;D

Welcome back Martin!

BlackJack a question, do you want to die, be saved, and come back raring to go? Or, loose your mind, pass out, have a fever, be a pain in the butt for a few days and THEN come back raring to go?
Just a passing curiosity...

WW, very well written over in the EL LOBO story. Quick query for time pacing. How long ago did you and Jack depart, up till now?

Great writing all! I second Martin's huzzah! Long Live DMT II!

Jack and Wenchie split up two years ago.

Jack and I had this planned out quite a while ago...we didn't want to reveal it until we posted it in El Lobo.

The Readers' Digest version--

Honour wanted Jack to give up the sea. On their way back to Barbados, they encountered his mortal enemy, Diego de Castille y Mendoza. A battle resulted, the ship was practically destroyed, and Jack took a hit that almost killed him. Honour dug the ball out of his shoulder and saved his life.

However his ego took a few hits and he took it out on the person closest to him. His wife. Yeah, we all know how that goes.... ::)

Tavern talk, misunderstood intentions, no communication, pride....all added up to a feeling of 'this just isn't going to work out'.

And she figured he didn't want a baby in his life so she left.

Sound about right, Jack?
I thought so!

OH, and.....HAPPY ANNIVERSARY TO EL LOBO DEL MAR!! We started that two years ago today!!
What a long, strange trip it's been.....
Title: Re: Comments on Dead Man's Tavern
Post by: Captain Jack Wolfe on July 11, 2008, 09:32:46 AM
Summed up beautifully, love!  :-* ;D

Now you can see where all the angst and bickering comes from.  Lots of yet to be resolved issues between the two!

Happy Anniversary to El Lobo del Mar!!  Our baby is entering the Terrible Twos!  :o :D

I have a fanciful little diversion post all written and ready to go. But it has to happen early in the morning of the next day.

Just a heads-up so no one places Wench where she shouldn't be.
She just decides to sneak back to the shops early in the morning and what should happen but....

Wonderful!!! A new Lil' Pirate!!! *Raises tankard of high quality rum*

Here's to the next chapter in the Wolfe saga!

Sorry I haven't been around a while, but me weekends are a tad busy these days.
Which is why I incapacitated Blackjack for a bit.

No worries, Lil. Blackjack will be fine, although in lala land for a bit, the lotus potion
isn't life threatening so go ahead and drag the stubborn goof back to the surgery
and patch him back up again. ::)

Now that he is reconciled with one cousin and Julian is no longer a threat he should be
a bit easier to deal with, though rarin' ta go. As soon as 'Squints' (Nice touch, Jack!)
sets him straight about a few misconceptions he has.

Malcolm and Blackjack on the same side???? This should prove very interesting indeed. ;) ;D

Au contraire, gentlemen!
My next post will show just how in control Captain Wench is!

BlackJack--the lil' pirate will NOT be making an appearance on the ship. Can you imagine baby-proofing El Lobo?

*Watch the baby, Jack! Don't let him/her put that plug in his/her mouth! And be sure to put the babygate up by the bilge!*

Title: Re: Comments on Dead Man's Tavern
Post by: Welsh Wench on July 16, 2008, 12:10:18 PM
In El Lobo, Wench went back home to Wales to have the baby.

Wench had bought a plantation with Jack's money under the name R. C. Castlemaine (her real name is Rhiannon Conaway Castlemaine) and was sailing back to Barbados to set it up and then go back to pick up the baby.
But noooo! Jack had to go and 'kidnap' her because she had the Sun Key he needed to open a chest.

So...Megan has the baby in Wales.

It would still be neat to post the cast/writers pictures all in one spot.

Not really a new pic, it was from this season.
I sucketh mightely at making pictures 'fit' into their precribed
size requirements.
The story behind the pic is I 'borrowed' the hat of one of our privateer Captain's on cast and turned it into my hat; using two of the ugliest feathers I could find.
(which amazingly matched my dress..talk about fashion sense)

Great writing everyone! It looks to be a rather interesting nightfall, I wonder aside from the two who are out of it, who is really going to get any sleep?

On that note---

On the old forum, if we reserved a spot and then posted, say, a week later, it would show up as current. On this forum format, if you post it does NOT show up as 'last post'.

To avoid a post getting overlooked, I'd like to make a suggestion that if you reserve and post after a few more posts have gone after yours, that you give us a 'heads up' here like Hibernian did.
That way we don't miss it!  :)

Wonderful post, Lilaney!

On another note..does anyone see our marginal characters really getting personalities of their own?

Briggs....Duckie..Julian..even Daggett!
And then there is Mason..Jason.....Gunther...and Hobson!

Thank you very much for the compliments!
I like that we have characters that we can
'pass' around.
It keeps the uniformity of the story well rounded.

Duckie is a fun character to bounce Lil off of.
Good Lord knows she could use the challenge.

Post by: Welsh Wench on August 15, 2008, 02:13:36 PM
I like that all the main characters have brains.
No ARRRRRs or hooks on hands.

Even our loonier ones like Mason and the guy in the crow's nest...Gordie?

Just enough loonies to keep it interesting!
Eccentricity. It's a good thing.

Hibernian, glad to see you back! We were getting a bit anxious.
Martin, you've either been reading our minds or listening in our calls....because I've got something in mind for this!
You can start whistling again...after you get that breakfast to us!

I may be a bit sporadic in posting now. Wenchie is back in school!

Sorry to cause anyone distress or heavens forbid add a gray hair in those blonde tresses.

The mundane world has been a bear, scheduled for 26 straight days without a break, and when I finally get home at night I usually collapse for a few hours before heading back. The last thing I wanted to do was go home and get back on the computer.

Now as to the story, enjoy your breakfast, because when Kate and I are done we may want to leave...no actually we may need to leave...quickly. So when you hear the crashing noise, look toward the church, you'll find Kate and Brother Timothy running to stay ahead of the dust and confusion.

You can wash your HoHo down with a Yoohoo, which would give you a cheap chocolate high.  Talk about a sugar buzz!  :D

There are always the swivel guns mounted on the gunwales.  They're only 2-pounders, but they'll get your attention at a decent range.  And the gun crew are quite handy with them.  Would that do?  ;D

I am sure the captain (take your pick, the soft, curvy captain or the one loaded with testosterone) will make sure we are all present and accounted for.

As the ship slips slowly from her sloop, will the carrousing cunning crew of the El Lobo laud and
laugh as the waves wash their worries away?
Will the Captain's come to cutlasses to cure their queries?
Will the Scribe(s) scratch out scribbles, or squabbles at one another?
Will the doctor's dote on adoring and possible dual passions?
Will the surgery be the stage for the stand of unstable staids?
Will the Flying Spaghetti Monster finally get his contractually agreed upon cameo slot!??!!

I shall add my two cents later tonight and if you are interested you may see what lies within the small wooden chest, hope you have a strong stomach.

You all crack me up!

OK--true story.
I was at the Duomo Cathedral in Milan. A friend of mine said, 'Look at that cardinal in the corner!'
And I said, 'Well, now how did a bird get in here?'

Turns out it was a CARDINAL! He was dead and in a glass coffin a la Snow White!
Short little guy, too.... ;D

Oh! The point of my story is---I guess he was a relic.  ;D

We are going camping with Cub scouts next weekend! It should be a blast!

Lil have a great time. Be careful, I started with a son in Tigers, and now I'm a Scoutmaster with a son working on his Eagle Project. Get in the right pack and troop and its a great time. I'm scheduled to take the boys sailing in the Florida Keys for a week in June 2009!

Ok, I've opened the chest and come to a natural stopping point, just in case anyone is anxious to get a post inj otherwise. I'll continued  on in the next post. I wonder what part of the saint would fit in such a small chest that one could carry under one arm?

I miss the scouts.  I'm an Eagle who beacame a Assistant Scoutmaster, who tried to for a Venture Crew.  Obviously it did not work the way i wanted.  But never the less i miss scouting.  My Daughter is trying to get me to become a Girlscout Master, but i dont know about that.  Maybe i will just wait till my son is ready.

My daughter earned her Gold Award for Girl Scouts, and while you may not wish to be Troop Leader, if you guys hook up with the right troop Girl Scouts can be great and they always need experienced Troop Committee members. If its the camping and outdoors you want, you'll find a lot of girls who want the same thing and just need some interested adults to open the door for them.

If its Boy Scouts and you don't wish to be tied down to one troop right now, check out volunteering as a commissioner for your local council. Remember the 100th anniversary is just around the corner, in 2010 everyone's meeting at the Hill!

CRF is a big Question mark.  The only day we can make it this year is the 18th, and that is assuming i can manage the funds.  Having both of us at part time status is making life a bit difficult.

Good posting, Lil and Elinor!

OK I am putting this out there--

In my last post, I had Wench panic and begin to think they should go to Wales to pick up Zara.

Here is my concern---which is all of you.

This is a group effort. If you all think we should go to El Dorado, I can always have Wench change her mind at the last minute.
My point is this--

I don't want anyone to feel that this is turning into a 'Jack and Honour' story.

So what I would like is your input.
Are you all preferring we go to El Dorado or is anyone up for putting a gate on the quarterdeck and baby-proofing the guns?
A play pen in the crow's nest?

Please let me know how you all feel. Everyone has equal input.
Well, everyone except those two with the blown-up ships in Glen Livet.
They are too busy trying to pick up the pieces of their shattered vessels!

Comments, y'all?
Title: Re: Comments on Dead Man's Tavern
Post by: lilaney on October 29, 2008, 08:24:58 AM
Seeing as I forgot what I forgot when I wrote the first time.
Here goes.

DMT has been a wonderful staple to the 'Pirate' forum since its inception
(See? I didn't say conception!) in 2006.
And, in that time, our vessel has meandered all over the warm waters of the Carribean.
From our home port of Glen Livet, where we always seem to cause nothing but trouble and hilarity.
Over to Tortuga, where I think there has been a blanket ban put out for us to ever return. Or, at least till key people die, then we can go back  :)
To some lesser known islands.
And, in that time, our characters have grown, matured, taken off, spawned new characters, and overall just had a good time.

WW, you pose an interesting proposition that is in keeping with this wanderlusting band of brigands.

Honestly, I don't believe that Jack and Honour have 'threadjacked' the show.
Their story has simple had main stage for awhile.
Which makes Hibernian's tale even more thrilling!!

We have so many undercurrents of storyline simply buzzing to continue, and if we are all agreeable to the idea that this story needs 'fresh waters' to sail, then let's do it.

But, I believe, in keeping with our mode of Tall Tale Telling.
We have to revert to Plan B....
because, as we all know, Plan B is always more exciting and a hell of a lot more fun than simply walking round the corner for a quart of milk.

Cheers!
~Lil

Nope, not mine. Don't own a vessel of me own.

All I own is a small island off the coast of Spain.. well, I will once my brother kicks it... at least, I think he is my brother. *Shrug* mum was a bit vague on that one...

I am not too popular in England either, but, that is mainly up in the North parts, and I did not pack for Winter wear, so I won't be anywhere near those Privateers.

I just want it to continue, it doesn't matter to me where things are headed :) And even if Jack and WW have the spotlight now--which I think they do--I think the spotlight keeps shifting. I mean, there was the section of drama when Elinor had the bullet wound, and all that...there Elinor had the spotlight. Now Brother Timothy is getting a little of the spotlight :) I think that comes with all of us contributing to this wonderful tale, and I wouldn't have it any other way!

Plus, if we did sail to Europe...Elinor has part Romani-heritage :) So I could do some research and could work that in, somehow... ;)

..and so we find Rocky and Bullwinkle at sea, with Capt. Peter 'wrongway' Peachfuzz
in command of the Galley.
"Rocky?"
"Yeah, Captain?"
"How does a chicken cross the road?"
"I don't know Captain, how?"
"I was hoping you might know."
Bullwinkle: "we'll we are certainly in a pre-dicament"
"What makes you say that, Bullwinkle?"
"Well, Rocky, with the Captain in charge of dinner, who's steering this ship?"
.. stay tuned for our next exciting adventure..

Still here, Luv, but now that Lil and I have broken into the room with Brother Tim and the spook I don't want to step on anything he may have in mind.

Besides, with the exception of Lin Qui "magic", which I'm quite certain is next to useless on spooks,  I'm terrible at exorcisms. ;D

Don't suppose I could talk the bugger into a game of Liar's Dice, do you? I could always cheat at that with a little slight of hand. ;)

I'm glad the interest is still here.
I understand with faires winding down and the season in full swing, that some may get swamped. I just wanted to make sure the prospect of going to Wales/Europe didn't put anyone off.

I think we all have stories to tell on why we DON'T want to go..but going we are and the stories can get revealed!

After all, I kept a kid hidden all this time....LOL

Firstly, CONGRATS ON THE WEIGHT REMOVAL!!!! and second, I totally agree with you.
You deal with a different sort of cold than I do.
You have that humid factor that does not really occur this far North.

I am on the Gulf Coast and at 50 degrees right now. It is biting cold out. I have the heat on and am wearing long underwear.
When the South gets cold, we FREEZE! It is the kind of cold that goes right through your bones and if you don't.....HOLY CRAP! I left someone something smoking in the captain's cabin!

OK I am going out of town this weekend but I'll take a notebook and do some writing.

I can understand your discomfort, though. But take heart, you'll get use to climate changes soon enough. Having recently relocated to the home mountains I froze me arse off the first winter. Now it's like I never left.

The Wench in long underwear, now there's something hard to imagine after seeing certain garb like that red dress!  :o

Now onto something completely different, since when do we offer "magic brownies" to evil spirits!? Is this something from the Druidic Book of Spells, Jamaican Edition? LOL, the situations we seem to get ourselves into on this voyage.

I agree, Hibernian!  After the red dress, it's hard to comprehend anything else!   ;D ;D

The magic brownie gambit reminds me of something George Carlin once said;  "May the forces of evil become confused on their way to your house."  Confused, stoned... not a lot of difference!  :D

Oh yeah, the red dress..heh, heh, heh....
Wenchie's 'go-to-meetin'  dress.

OK so I figured that even spooky old entities can use a brownie to mellow out!
Let's see if he can handle it!
I only wish we had Zara here with a couple Samoans Samoas.

Entity: Oooooh...Ooooooh...
*puzzled* What's the matter, little girl? You don't scare easy....

Zara: Put a sock in it, bogeyman! My daddy is Mad Jack Wolfe! Now...how many boxes of cookies can I put you down for?

Great writing everyone!

just finished reading the post. Brilliant writing!

So, how are we going to banish this thing?
Maybe we should draw a circle on the floor and get some old tequila a couple limes, some salt, maybe enlist the help of Sandra Bullock and Nicole Kidman..
but, that might be too expensive in the long run.. I wonder if something simple might fix this?

Lil and Roberts will be fine and wondering about...Wench will be sober and protective of...El will be dazed with visions of a hat with a big feather...and the Apostle to the Pirates, your friendly neighborhood traveling monk will have a sign from heaven he's on the right track and to stick with it.

An excellent addition, it was a natural pause spot and i shouldn't be hogging the lines. I'm just trying to get us clear of this wee bit of trouble so we can hit the road again.

Ow, Elinore, that one may leave a mark for awhile.

And the deposit of El right next to Wench was perfect for the next segment and someone's mother hen feeling that arise even in the face of magic brownies.

Next installment in place, need to take a moment and breath, (any brownies left?) before we continue.

I figure once he's cornered between the Jade amulet, the druidess, and the monk; the poor spirit is doomed (no pun intended) and doesn't even realize it. Oh and we have one more surpirse before we off the big bad, so do what you wish but don't off him yet. I have a guest star ready to do the honors.

You know this has been rough on this old monk, we better have some special medicine ready after this is all done. You know the kind Dr McCoy used to give Kirk. Do they have Romulan Ale where we are heading?

Crom! The battle begins...anyone who wishs go ahead and take a swipe at it. We should have a bit of luck between the three of us, but I still have one last surprise (the one who will actually win the battle) to pull before we win and you know who has to go back from whence he came!

And to think by "young girl" we thought he wanted Elinore.

Sometimes you two remind me of David and Maddie from Moonlighting! Or perhaps after this is done we'll hear "Lucy you got some splaning to do."  ::)

Blackjack, an excellent pick up with the amulet, that was exactly what I was thinking. One of us alone might not be able to pull it off, but the three together will cause someone or thing to have second thoughts.

I'm looking to bring this to a head tonight and finish it before the weekend.

My thanks, Hibernian. I was hoping that I was reading into that correctly; but get the rum ready.....Blackjack iswas a hardcore skeptic. Facing both spooks and a sudden encounter with real magic might require a barrel or six....ok, seven......would you believe eight?..... to come to grips with.  ;) ;D ;D

Which isn't good for close fighting, I have been informed....

Hibernian, I'd like to see what happens!
Let us know here when you finish your post.

And after that...SAMOANS FOR ALL!

Well as Samwise said, "I'm home."

It didn't come out exactly as I expected, but....

The way I figure, the demon is gone, the cabin is a wreck, the occupants are a bit worse for wear, but everyone survives. I expect Mad Jack's got a bit of a concussion from connecting with that door. I always imagine Elinore waking up and still imaging herself Captain, oops did Wench hear that? And there will be a some pages from a certain book in the treasure box for the monk.

Thank you all for the time spent with this episode of the tavern. We now return you to regularly scheduled pirate adventure.

Besides, he went through my underwear drawer....and we have to have a little tete-a-tete about that.  >:(

Besides, ye don't expect Wenchie ta haul Mad Jack all the way ta Duckie's do ye?!

One spook a lifetime be more'n enough fer Blackjack......Don't have enough changes 'a underwear in the sea bag as it is. How this pair made it through all that is beyond me!  :-\

It wouldn't have been the first time Wenchie has dragged Jack to get medical care.  At least she doesn't have to dig a bullet out of him this time.

But at least Jack has the prettiest nurse in the Caribbean to look after him!  Even if she's unhappy about him snooping in her drawers...  ;) :D

I think there's a roguemouth hiding in there somewhere.

No fair in the Carolinas till late spring up in Raleigh with NCRF.  BUT, I do have TN on the calendar for the beginning of May, and if at all possible both I and my lovely one will be on site with the Captains Wolfe and company! It holds a special place in our memories ever since ETTE TU. A lotta of good times and good friends were had and met there.

Not necessarily, if you combine the movie and the series there are still possibilities.

Let us not forget Lt. Dish, the Painless Pole, Ugly John, Srgt Rizzo, and one of my favorites Dr. Sidney Freedman. Any one know a Col Blake in DMT?

In case you have never read it, and you enjoy the characters from the movie, look up a copy of MASH goes to Maine.

On February 9, 2006, the very first post of Dead Man's Tavern was laid down by Lorelei the Black Rose.
For those that don't know the story behind it--
Ice Mage, Martin Montgomery and I were waiting for a collaberative story that never developed. 
Huzzah to THAT one!

Anyways, it wasn't long before Kiss-Me-Kate, Lilaney, Marvos, White Rose, Elinore Hakebourne and Hibernian joined in.
Mad Jack Wolfe and Black Jack Roberts joined us a bit later.

Guest appearances by Deadbishop, Laird Guardn' MCrack, Captain Bacardi, Teach, Captain Sean Daniels and while he couldn't write, his appearance was memorable--BLUE!



And what you now see is the culmination of three year's worth of laughter and a labour of love.

So....LONG MAY WE SAIL THE SIX SEAS!

Huh?...Jack..are you sure?...Really!..seven, huh?..since when?....oh.....must be those brownies...

Anyways--


HAPPY THREE YEAR ANNIVERSARY TO DEAD MAN'S TAVERN!!!

Ice Mage! Take a bow as the founding father of this story! Can you believe what we started and how it has gone strong for so long?
Honestly, you all are the best!

Lil, I sense a romance in the air. I love the way you have Duckie just as we pictured him.

And Hibernian--yes, I will see Laird in about three weeks! Wish the entire crew could be there! But pictures I am sure will abound.

Now--shall we make a stop in an island or two and then on to the Commonwealth?

It would have been nice, but the real world does tend to get in the way. Yet, before you know it May and TNRF will be here, and we'll have time to share a pint and a story or two.

Story line wise, a stop or two along the way would be wise. Not sure what we do about Cade, perhaps draw him along somehow?
Title: Re: Comments on Dead Man's Tavern
Post by: lilaney on February 26, 2009, 08:15:54 AM
Currently in our piratical game of CLUE:

 It is Martin, Elinore, Blackjack and his cousin in the Surgery with the antiseptic.
Hibernian just bumped open the door with his free elbow, hands full of Lil's
Accoutra-crap.

Lil is in the women's cabin trying to sleep. If Kate is still around, she is in there too.

The Captain's are in their stateroom;

 and I beleive Briggs is topside bossing around the crew, Duckie is either in his stateroom, headed for the Surgery, or topside with Briggs; this is at the discrection of the next writer who needs that character for something.

Did I miss anyone?

.. and, Thank you Jack!! :)

The fun part about writing; your character can do whatever you want them too.
Your stage is as big as the internet box you open this forum in!

Elinor could come busting out of the surgery, knock out the Brother, steal Lil's Dagger, go forward of the mainsail, knock Julien off his barrel, knife to the neck until he admits he is a lousy no-good stiff-necked excuse for a ballerina...

 ;D
Wake her up and let her party!

*Hugs* Elinore rocks the casba; she adds that Kaylee (Pardon the 'Firefly' mention) aspect to this story. I love seeing you develop her as we progress.

I don't know...it would add a certain "spice" and "intrigue" to the story ;)

I just meant that the character always seems to get herself into situations where rest is needed immediately afterwards ;)

Title: Re: Comments on Dead Man's Tavern
Post by: lilaney on February 28, 2009, 08:47:26 PM
There is a certain element of escalation and de-escalation that occurs in our story...
if not, it would be a herd of us sitting out at sea playing the ever popular game of
"What do you call it? Soda, pop or Coke?"

Trust me, four years at sea, that dam game is still out there..

Hibernian, it was a theory! T
here is a -5 roll to damage to a religious person, I don't have the hit points to withstand the mighty
force of a negative roll!  :o

Thanks Jack! I enjoy having the 'hive mind' that creates a character that we can all toss back and forth as he/she is needed.
Gives the story so much more flexibility.

Elinore, instead of taking the hit next time, give back as good as you get!  ;)
Toss the ball of focus to another character, or take it yourself and play with it.
I could totally see you taking out a legion on your own.. I think Wenchie, as Girl Scout Den Mother #000012
she can get you the merit badge for that one.. just understand whatever you learn, you have to take Zara with you next time. :D

Relax Lil, I know you were kidding, besides unbeknowst to all but the DM, my habit is made from the fabled "brown cloth of piety", to strike it is an automatic additional deduction of 100 hit points and the attacker can not rise from a kneeling (prayful) position for five turns. LOL, Lord I miss those friday evenings of beer, pizza and ADD!

Now for something completely different; just confirmed today that I will be able to make the "writers conference" the first weekend of May at TNRF! Arrive Friday, depart Monday...Huzzah, pass the Guinness, Brother Timothy is back in town!

Elinore time to wake up....I've got something that will place your mind at ease and then lets get you out of sick bay for awhile!

You're right, what you need to a little sunshine, fresh air and vitamin D.

Ooooooooooops!!! :o :o :o

I should have read comments first.

I hope I didn't step on anything there.

If it doesn't fit what you had in mind, Brother Tim, let me know and I'll haul her down.

I can always add something else later.

Blackjack once again we are on the same page, let it ride and lets get her moving so the lass can get some of her own prose into the story. Enough sleep Elinore, its almost St Patrick's Day  and time to break out the Guinness and go to a parade!

We tried to smooth things over, but they all began to fight;

Ladies and gentlemen, our next destination is the port of Sangraal, on the scenic island of Castille de Fuego.  Be sure to drop by the ship's mess at 2:00 PM for "Shopping Talk with Captain Wench" to find out all the hottest deals in this sunny little slice of tropical heaven.  The drink special of the day is anything with rum in it.  At 3:30, Gordy will be hosting another exciting game of "Name That Speck on the Horizon", and at 7:30, our own Dr. Gander will be giving his famous "Brandies of the World" seminar.  And don't forget to meet Master Briggs on the Lido Deck at 10:00 to cheer on your favourite singer in tonight's double-elimination round of "Caribbean Idol!"

This is your cruise director wishing you a pleasant day, and thank you for sailing aboard El Lobo del Mar!   ;D :D

OK so I spent faire time with none other than Laird Guardn' MCrack this weekend.
Laird had a post from a year ago that he never posted. It tells what happened to his ship around the time we were leaving port.

What I plan to do is this--
In a few weeks when Laird gets home-he is at DisneyWorld-- :o--we should be in port by then. I think either Hibernian or I should write a post where we go into a tavern and Laird is there.
We can ask, "What happened?" and Laird can post it as a story he is telling.

I will IM or email Lairde in advance and find out what day he would like to post it.

Does that sound do-able to everyone?
Title: Re: Comments on Dead Man's Tavern

Captain Wench: Zara, darling? Can you see if you have any Samoans in the storage room?

Zara: Mommy, cool it! I have all these orders to get together before we go to Sang Graal and I think Uncle Josiah has been taking a cookie out of each box and sealing it up! I'm telling Daddy...DADDY???!!!

Jack: Mmmmf hmmmffff?

Captain Wench: There's your cookie thief, dear. Now, find a box of Samoans for Uncle Timmy.

Zara: (exasperated) SAMOAS, Mommy. NOT Samoans. Those are big fat oriental wrestlers.

Jack: (swallows and wipes crumbs off face) Those are Samurais, Zara.

Josiah: (off-camera) SUMOS!

Zara: What-EVER!

*Jack looks at Wench and raises an eyebrow*

Wench:  Don't look at me. I don't know where she gets it from.

OK this poses interesting thoughts. Crew of KH, do we retrieve the ship or say adieu to it? Drag it along behind like a one-eyed stuffed bunny?
And we have to get our puppies back, which we will real soon.
Regardless, Wench has to stay with Jack as he has to meet his little Cookie Pusher.

I don't want to see the story end..... :(

One other thing--if you reserve a spot, please post in Comments that you have actually filled that post. Elinor, I missed your great post because it doesn't let the recent posts list know it has been edited.

I think there should at least be some investigation of the old ship, and perhaps we should endeavor to take it with us, but maybe that won't work out so well, and we aren't able to take it with us back out of port in the end?

Harold: Announcing Brother Timothy the HIbernian from the Order of St Brendan and Brother of Fairhaven Abbey. Running past him is his Irish Wolfhound Amber. Nice doggy-EEEE YOW!!!! What a belch!

*Amber is 32" high and has a pointy cold nose. Do we need to say more?*

Hibernian: Yes--Amber is a female and they are referred as that.

Joan: Maybe she was looking for a bone.

Harold: (in a high pitched voice and out of breath) Yes, she found it!

Joan: I'm suprised she found anything at all!

*Harold gives Joan a pained look*

Joan: Well, seeing how Harold is fashionably doubled over, I'll get on with the description of our fine monk here. He is wearing a brown robe with a rope belt, leather sandals, and a plain Celtic cross around his neck, a leather travelers bag and a staff.

*Joan bends over to meet Harold's eyes and then looks at Hibernian and asks, 'Can I borrow your dog sometime?'*

*Amber then nuzzles Joan's backside*

Joan: OOOH!!! COLD NOSE!!"

Harold laughs and says, "What is good for the gander is good for the goose!"

So I guess Wench isn't the only female on the ship who's concerned about a book ;)

*ponders* I guess Elinor could be in that camp too, after all, the old ship's logs are still on the Knight Hammer, and she dearly wants them back, even if they are a little too heavy to carry (Julian can take them, though...) ...

The thing about secrets is the more you try to keep them, the more they want to get out.

Great postings, everyone.

I'll be out of town for about 5 days, (no, not TN--school business) and I'll take a notebook to write.

I'll be incommunicado for the next three days. School business takes me out of town.

just finished reading Wench's posts.. great job! ;D

I have an idea for a bit, and will modify it if I accidentally cross wires from those who reserved spaces, or it doesn't 'sound' right after everyone has written.
Feel like writing.

Um...didn't we try that at St Dimas with disastrous results?

Or it sprung a leak on its own.

A leak on its own.

Ok, writer's conference at TNRF done. Of course just like in the story, three of our characters go to TNRF and disaster strikes!

Woot! Great job, Jack.
I look forward to seeing what Hibernian writes.
As it stands I am at a mental block. I cannot see how to fit Lil in at this moment, hence the reason I am not writing.
I can see where others stories need to be meted out, so I'll think I just send her into town for some shopping.
Is this a safe port? Or, our usual port of call?
Title: Re: Comments on Dead Man's Tavern

Now Lil think about it; even if once it was, once we land is any port really safe?

You have to love the Brits and their nicknames for everything.  St. Mary's of Bethlehem Hospital became known as "Bedlam", and the Mary Magdalene Infirmary for Women got tagged "Maudlin".

Good morning, campers.  You may have noticed that DMT is locked.  I did this because a spam attack started on Wednesday morning and I did not want our work to get hit.  I'll unlock it in a couple days once management gets the problem sorted out.

Nothing is sacred to these guys.

They have been trying to spam a couple of the blogs that I work for. Since they all use wordpress they just get deleted before they see the light of day, yet they still keep overloading the comments section with pure gibberish and links. ::)

I've posted and swinging it back to you guys.

Sorry to be slow, spent the last week helping the boyo finnished up his Eagle Project, handed into the Council this very morning, Huzzah! Then also spent the past week getting ready to take the scout troop sailing.

I'm wheels up for Miami this evening and set sail in the Keys on Tuesday. Oh yeah, a week with the boys asail in the Florida Keys!

I'll keep an eye out for Lobo just in case.

Post by: lilaney on June 18, 2009, 10:07:17 AM
We always have 'fun' in port..
I know I have to wrap up the tension, or prolong it creatively between Lil and Duckie soon.
(I wanna know 'what happens next', even if no one else does...)
Currently in our timeline it is late morning on our first day in port.
Hibernian, Jack and WW are(were) over on our old Knight Hammer.
Martin is working on Stores
Lil/Elinor are out in town causing a good ol' fashion ruckus (Hafta find the dogs!)
Briggs is nursing a sore pride somewhere and Duckie is off doing 'ducky' things...
The Crew have been released for some shore leave, leaving the El Lobo with its usual
contigent of skeleton crew and watchmen.
Time back aboard for them will be tomorrow night (is that okay with everyone?)
That way we'll have a night in port before we are off sailing again into our next grand adventure.

The problem in voting for Rendezous was I want to go to each one of the fairs nominated! It was very hard trying to put them in some kind of order so I could actually vote only once.

Unless some of the Chicago preceints come in late, Scarby looks good for next year. Depending upon the weekend chosen I looking forward to seeing everyone there. After all, there are M'Cracks in Texas too!
Title: Re: Comments on Dead Man's Tavern

This rocks! If ya'll all get to make it down here, let me know!
(I have lived here most of my whole life, so I know the joint pretty well)
AND! I agree it will be one heck of a picture.

Scarby isn't as big as TRF, but, there is a magic here that is like no other.

The only drawback is there is no camping, but, seeing as they just installed 'Lake Sevier' you
wouldn't want to camp on the grounds anyway (The 'Lake' is a sump)

And, Hibernian, you are sooo correct, there are M'cracks everywhere!
and, something that I don't believe they have at any other faire.. Clan Mc'Bubba.
(trust me, if you saw them. You wouldn't forget them.)

Title: Re: Comments on Dead Man's Tavern
Post by: Hibernian on July 21, 2009, 10:19:57 AM
Lil, Scarby has always been on our list on places to visit, getting a chance to visit with the DMT crew just makes it that more special.

As for the M'Cracks, just tell them a few of the relations from the East Coast are coming for a visit. They might want to double the Guinness supply.

Or, just the starting part?

So, since Febuary three years ago we have been playing.
All our characters have done such great things in their own story lines as well
as to contribute greatly to the whole.
Nostalgia aside, this is so much fun!

Hibernian, congrats to your Eagle Scout!!
I have a Tiger Cub starting this year and the Boy Scout Museum is a wonderful motivator.
Having gone last week, he is determined to become an Eagle Scout... we shall see.

Wenchie: What the **** happened to the DMT crew I used to know? Where's the spirit? Where's the guts, huh? This could be the greatest night of our lives, but you're gonna let it be the worst. "Ooh, we're afraid to post in here, Wenchie, we might get in trouble." Well just kiss my *** from now on! Not me! I'm not gonna take this. Corwin, he's a dead man! Cade, dead! Niedermeyer...
wait...Neidermeyer???

Jack: Dead! Wenchie's right. Psychotic, but absolutely right. We gotta take these bastards. Now we could do it with conventional weapons that could take years and cost millions of lives. No, I think we have to go all out. I think that this situation absolutely requires a really futile and stupid gesture be done on somebody's part.

Wenchie: We're just the writing team to do it!

On a serious note--Do you all want to continue the story? I know mundane life has kicked our butts but if the interest isn't here, then maybe we should wrap this story up.

OHHH...it is SO good to see a post in DMT again!

Thanks, Elinor!
I am trying to clear my mind and detach all the mundane things in it for a while.
I'll see if I can come up with something pretty soon!

Wonderful to see this jump-started!

 :D Good to see friends again!
Been insanely busy these past months..
Last final is tonight, so i thought I'd post what's been on my brain for awhile.

Just a few questions:
  Are we leaving the island soon?
  If so, are we planning to cross the pond?
  
Stand  by for a shake up!

Ooooh! How did Lil end up on another ship, and, more important, WHY?

What mess will Julian have gotten Elinor into?

Find out as the sands in the hourglass...no, wait...These are the Days...No, that's not it either...

Duckie did it!

I am glad to see some friendly 'faces' out here.

Cheers!

Post by: Elinor Hakebourne on August 09, 2010, 10:47:14 AM
I guess the story is on hiatus...perhaps our storytellers are waiting for the cold of winter? After all, DMT CAN bring out the shiny-ness of faire during the winter doldrums...
Title: Re: Comments on Dead Man's Tavern
Post by: Welsh Wench on August 09, 2010, 07:14:34 PM
Elinor, Jack and I were talking last night about resuming DMT. We both agreed with faires and summer, everyone is on overload.
But when things slow down a bit--Jack has his faire and I am busy with work--by October we hope to revive it.

I read alot of DMT1 last night and it was just too funny to let go. I don't know where Lilaney has wandered off to but I think I have her regular email.

We think maybe we should look for El Dorado. I can always pick the kid up later!
Title: Re: Comments on Dead Man's Tavern
Post by: Elinor Hakebourne on August 31, 2010, 07:04:36 PM
*nod* El Dorado sounds shiny! :) And I agree - October would be a grand time to start things up again. Though, I will mention that I won't be posting much in November, because of National Novel Writing Month, just fyi :)

OK maybe we can get this thing off life support now that our chieftan is back in!
Everyone is on hiatus since mundane life has been kicking us in the collective butts.

Anyone have any brainstorms?

This is GREAT!!

Post by: lilaney on March 10, 2011, 09:10:51 AM
Final Mid-Term this AM!! So far, three are iffy, two solid and one came back a 'C'..
I do not like Multiple Choice. Am much better at explaining myself in essay-format.

With that in mind.. so begins The Chase section of our series.
In more ways than one, I think this will be an exciting time to write.

Spring break is 12 hours away.. c'mon free time!!!
(Well, not really, There is a Case Study, Scholar report, Interview paper, and 1000 plus essay and what
I 'Thought' about last week's tour.... ah well.. more time to sit and write. )

Cheers!

You do realize that anything with a name like the "Heart of the Devil" must be cursed!

Yep, left the poor monk in port, but I'll get a story out of Athena. After all a Romani wouldn't lie to a cleric, bad form.

Guard'n cranked up the Valiant and the Pride, I'll be coming your way with the girls. Dam you better find them some husbands they're growing up pretty quick!

Okay, I posted.
Apologies for being so mollasses slow.
I look forward to creating the resolution in this drama.
AND! I am so excited to think more high adventure is on its way, via Athena's story and a M'Crack Ship!

Modest bit of Story Trivia: First time Lil is introduced to Duckie is on 10/17/2007 {almost three and a half years ago!}

Is the Story over?

I hope not, but, I get it if it has come to an end.
It has been a wild ride and trust me, this got me through some REALLY tough times in my life.
Thank you to all of DMT's writers, all the way back to the Tavern itself.

I can say that I graduated College, I am working towards a career I love, and I found my Duckie.
(PSSSssst!! That guy? the one I patterned who I thought 'Duckie' was? I met him in 2007, and guess what
we have been together over a year now. So yeah... Lil and Duckie hooked up.)

Thank you again, to Everyone!
Title: Re: Comments on Dead Man's Tavern
Post by: Welsh Wench on September 07, 2011, 04:29:23 PM
Oh, no, Lil--the story is not over. Not by a long shot!

I think real life has taken its toll on alot of us but I think most of us would like it to continue. In fact, Jack and I wrote a bit on IM right after we saw your post.

I am going out of town this weekend but I will print it out and work on it at night.

And...congratulations on finishing college and finding your Duckie!
This story has seen us through all sorts of 'dark days'.  ;D

Heck, I even went back to school!

"Captain Wench, I may not be the brightest crew member--although I am a damn fine fisherman--but it doesn't take a brain to realize the ship is just that. A ship. It's a shell,  just like the skin that covers what is inside. The heart. Captain, the heart of the Knight Hammer IS the crew. All of us. Yeah, we melded into the crew of El Lobo del Mar."

We melded Dead Man's Tavern, all of you. And I have missed that.

I'm right here young lady. I'm heading up to Grandfather Mountain this weekend for the highland games and perhaps a wee bit of drinking. But I'll be watching the tavern. Don't get too far away, I'll be heading toward you shortly.

Oh!  Hibernian, how are the HG games over there? I only compete in Texas. Particularly in the North Texas region. Took last year and most of this year off, but, Hope to get back in the swing of things soon.

Also, Writers... where are we taking this crew and boat?
What is our next adventure?

Post by: Welsh Wench on July 13, 2012, 05:25:55 PM
Pretty much so since alot of us were MIA for a while.
And real life is kicking a few of us right now.

I just log in usually to post in the stories and that is pretty much it for me. I stay within Port of Call.
Nothing really worthwhile here anymore.

But I love what you did! Duckie and Lil needed a bit of romance.

I say we go off to search for the Corazon el Diablo.

But first we need to make a U-turn and pick up one missing monk!
Title: Re: Comments on Dead Man's Tavern
Post by: Hibernian on July 13, 2012, 10:26:48 PM
I'm comin Beannie Boy!

Lil, our games are great! The local games in April are just down the way from our faire site north of Charlotte. Well attended, but still local with perhaps close to a 100 clans represented.

Tommorrow I head to Grandfather Mountain for the 56th (?) annual games. This is the largest gathering of the Scots outside of Scotland. Unless you have a pass, the average guest will park at the bottom of the mountain and take the shuttle up to McRae Meadow. It all starts Thursday night with the Call of the Clans, Friday has music going, then Saturday all bloody hell breaks loose. The clans, heavy athletics, vendors, clan meetings, a tent for speaking gaelic, pipe and drum juding and demos, dancing, three music stages (then a full fledge concert Sat night), sheep dog demos, wrestling, and perhaps a wee drink or two. Sunday we start all over after church services.

Well worth a visit.

To those who are unaware and don't read all the board messages, Brother Timothy aka Hibernian passed away I believe it was Monday, Sept. 24th.

No decisions will be made for a while whether to continue the story or wrap it up.

I will miss him more than I can say.

:( I didn't know about this - haven't logged in in a while - until Jack posted on FB. We never met in real life, but my heart is sad for this loss.

Perhaps we should wrap the story up... :(

I'm sorry you had to find out this way, Elinor. This has been a terrible shock and loss for us all.

Personally, I know I could not possibly do Hibernian's characters justice. I suppose that means I'm casting my lot for wrapping things up, as well. :-\
