The Ale Pond Reborn!
The puddle returns! The first round, as last time, is on me! Also, congrats to Genocydal on his recent promotion!
Excellent! Congrats Genocydal! Also, congrats to Dox and Scion for their Seals of Loyalty.
I don't drink, but I'll buy from time to time...
When you're willing to buy booze for others, you don't have to drink! You'll always have friends enough to drink it for you, for sure.
For this round I wanted to bring up an old re-opening of the ale pond. Just so you all know how old this tradition is
(OLD POST FROM BF)
I figured, even though we have new boards, we shouldn't leave the pond behind. As such, first round is on me! (I figured it was appropriate for me to buy. Heh.)

Posts: 502 * Shadow urinates in the pond.
haha please, let's try to keep urine out of the pond this time.
Congrats are in order! Booze is on the House Summit for the time being!
Anshar (Anteian Cross), Archean (Dark Cross), Demos (Dark Cross), Dox (Anteian Cross), Frosty (Steel Cross), MERLANCE (Dark Cross), Raiju (Steel Cross), Scion (Dark Cross), Sarconn (Dark Cross)!
Congrats to all! Drink up!
Congrats all for your rewards!
Also congrats to the new Aedile, Anshar!
*dresses in a maid outfit and serves everyone, since she doesn't drink*
My god, the Ale Pond... Long has it been since I've gathered 'round its' frothy shore.
And if the Summit is buying, it's time to get my drunk on! ;p
We have two new members in Tarentum, please welcome Redge and Melody!
Also, Jason Hunter passed the Light Side History course in the Shadow Academy! Congrats!
Next round is on me!
Congrats to Jason, and welcome to our new members! And, I guess congrats to the whole House, since Saronyx is dressing up in maid outfits now!
hehe only for Tarentum.
*serves drinks to everyone*
*grabs a beer and greedily chugs it down*
If Sithie's going to keep buying rounds every time I do something good, I'll pass SA courses all the freakin' time! ;p
Um, Jason, I believe I was the last one to buy for everyone... And passing an SA exam is worth a drink in my opinion.
Now, let's see how much activity we can get in the Clan. (Yes, Tarentum's a Clan to me too, and it always will be.)
Oh, well, yeah....I suppose that's true. Either way, if I'm gonna get rewarded for learning something, I'll gladly kill it again with beer.
Oh, and on the House/Clan thing: I think, and this is just me putting my thought on the matter out there, that if we want to get the activity back that we used to have when Tarentum was a Clan, we need to think of ourselves as a Clan. That's why I came back from the Rogues. I was looking at the Roster one day, just randomly, and saw we'd been demoted to back down to a House. It pissed me off. So, I thought I'd come back and try to lend my hand in whatever way I can to get Tarentum back to Clan status, as it should always be...and now, I guess, just save it from the chopping block. But, that's why in my new MB banner, I used the old tri-House Clan crest, to show my pride in Tarentum's Clan past and what I always new it to be and what it can be again.
Cheers for that Jason! And let me get drunk before I face that old Taldryan dog in the BB's final. I'm buying the next round!
I like you, Jason. I agree with you wholeheartedly.
Good luck Dox... Wait, you don't need luck, you got skill.
Edit: Second page! That deserves another drink, right?
I tend to wear my heart on my sleeve when it comes to Tarentum matters....as well as political, but I'll try to leave those ones at the door of reality. But, I've been in this crazy thing known as Star Wars online gaming groups since I was a teenager...like, 14 or so. Started off in the Emperor's Hammer, and joined the DB when we were under Ronin's control there. So, I go back a ways for Tarentum. Not as far as most, but I've been around a while. And as I said before, I was pissed when I saw we were a House again. I definitely want to change that, and if I can be an agent of that change, all the better. And, if others wish to join me in that crusade, that's even better.
So, I say we declare an unofficial war on lethargy and inactivity, get our asses as a CLAN out of neutral and into at least second gear, and tell the DC where they can stick the notion of closing down the most illustrious CLAN the entire Dark Jedi Brotherhood has ever known. What say ye, my brethren?
And, yeah, two pages calls for more drinks.
I'm with you, Jason.
*serves more drinks to everyone*
EDIT: I heard Redge was promoted. Congrats Redge!
It's been too long since someone's posted...the Ale Pond is going to dry up! Start talking again, guys!
Congrats to all that received medals: Dox, Giovanni, Oberst, Scion, and Raiju! And Redge and Melody both were promoted to Novice. Celeste is a new member in Tarentum. This calls for more than one round.
*buys and serves three rounds for everyone*
Yes! More booze!
*happily grabs his three drinks and saunters off to enjoy them*
Oh, yeah...congrats to whoever on whatever they did and whenever they did it...
*wonders where everybody went to...*
I, too, have been wondering that. It's like the holidays have taken everyone's time. Stupid Christmas! We're trying to rebuild Tarentum, here! Jeez!
lol indeed! Hopefully, we'll get some activity in here, though. That would be a nice Christmas present for Tarentum.
Congrats to Akki Draco, Lucious Black, Poguesy, Darth_Lugo and Tenda! All five were promoted to Novice! Also, congrats to Egregious and Scion for taking the Legions of the Scholar in Week 3 email trivia!
Also, I'm buying shots for Jason and Saronyx for keeping the taps here flowing. They're doing a great job of keeping the Ale Pond growing.
Well, isn't that what you'd expect from the Baroness?
*serves the drinks*
*Snags his drink and eyeballs it with a big grin*
*sips her ginger ale* This does count as ale, right?
Egregious passed his IRC Basics with a perfect score. Congrats Egregious! *serves more drinks*
Congrats Egregious! You're doing great man!
Gah! Five days since the last post! The pond is starting dry up! Postingpostingpostingpostingdrinkingposting!
Sorry, went out of town and wasn't online. But now I'm back! Okay, what all have I missed...
We have 10 new Novices here: Yeva Nocte, Tenda, Poguesy, Nebuchadnezzar, Lucious Black, Lugo, Dark Devastator, Celeste, Andco, and Akki. Egregious keeps knocking Shadow Academy courses, passing 13 so far, including the Tarentum history course. Armus is back in Tarentum, and Biyann and Redec Livan are new members.
*counts the number of drinks she's paying for this time* One for each promotion, one for each of Egregious' passed SA exams... 26.
I like having to type a paragraph for all of Tarentum's activity. Keep it up, people. Welcome Biyann and Redec, and welcome back Armus.
26 drinks? Holy crap, I just might have to pace myself this round!
hehe That's one for every letter of the standard alphabet. Would you like me to serve one at a time for you?
*wonders where everybody is*
I heard there's supposed to be a party here... *shrugs, then serves a drink to Jason*
I LOVE DRINKS
Makes more drinks for everyone and drinks more drinks while drinking.....DRINKS!
haha! Don't worry about it, Egergious; I'll make and serve the drinks. What will you have?
[Edited for spelling mistakes. ><]
*takes his drink and downs it, waiting for his next one*
I don't know about him, but I'll have whatever's free.
*laughs* I don't blame you. *serves Jason*
Holy Darth lords 21 drinks for passing exams.... im probally gonna vomit... and I just got these robes......(slams 5 shots) hic ..... m warms me belly the alcohol does yes.....
Picks his head off the bar and smacks his lips ".... Bartender! Bartender where are you!" Looking around the pond where is everyone its almost coming to the time where the party begins ...
Stumbles up to the bar.Taking care to pick his steps carefully .. reaching out he fumbles to steady himself on a stool, missing he cracks his head on the bar."frack ..that hurt,,"
hic.... " where did everyone go to " hic... "this thing was supposed to go all night long. " pushes back from the bar and observes the room. walks behind the bar and flexes his beer muscles and truns the dail on the stero up.....
"thats better" he thinks "now where to find the ladies to liven this place up!"
Smiles braodly as the scantly clad Twi'lek dancers sauntered into the room. Walking back around the bar he looks to see who is around.
"well ladies take the pole and the men over there and wait to be called by the guests." he gestures over to side. "my my we do have some stunning women tonight this should be a blast weather or not anyone shows up!"
He then walks over to the bar and pours himself a drink wondering if anyone is going to make it in time.....
I apologize for not replying; we had our internet cut off. I'll be back regularly on the 10th, I hope.
*serves Egregious and anyone else in here*
*quickly snags a drink before Saronyx leaves again* I was just busy with family and Christmas stuff...no computer time for me that week.
And I've been trying to get my Wiki page done, which is taking more time than I ever thought it would. More history to this character than I initially thought!
We lost internet at our house. But I'm at school, now, so I should be on at least once a day.
Oh no!! One whole week since someone posted!! The pond is drying up!!
*starts pouring beer into the puddle* We need to save it! Someone help me!
*turns all of the taps on and lets the alcohol flow*
Sorry, I was waiting for someone else to reply.
Yeah, so was I. Looks like we're the only ones that post on here anyways. Guess it's up to us to keep the Ale Pond alive!
That's alright; we can keep it alive. Right?
Sounds like you need some new blood in the forums lol.
Well, I'm always up to shake things up a bit
Hey Sarconn. It's nice to see you here.
Well, it would appear as though the Krath of the Clan....guh, House are the only ones that seem to know how to post on here. That works for me! Krath Order, unite!
Woo, extra drinks for the Krath! *changes into a slightly more appealing outfit to serve the drinks*
Well all in all, I killed off Sarconn, my new character is named Tor'Fel Hazzan and now I'm a Sith.
Aw, why'd you kill off Sarconn?
Well I lost the direction I was going with him awhile back, and fictionally he reached his peak. So I had an NPC apprentice I was building anyway so I decided that his apprentice should kill him like a true Sith would and take his place in the Brotherhood.
That sounds like a good idea.
*serves Tor'Fel Hazzan*
I've never understood people's ability to just, kill off and randomly change their characters. I've had the same one since I joined the Emperor's Hammer, back in '01 or '02. He's changed, but in a linear way, as I have. I've just always seen my character of Jason Hunter as an extension of myself, of who I'd rather be in a way...at least that's how it was in junior high and high school when I made him, and I didn't have but a cup full of self confidence.
I killed off Syrna Valkiss before making Saronyx. Onyx is somewhat like me, only I'm not a spy... or in shape at all... But it seems easier to me to play a spy. *shrugs*
Maybe I'm just not creative enough to keep reinventing and creating characters. Or I just don't get bored with one or two, as some of my RL friends have done with characters they've made for different things.
I dunno. I just know that Jason Hunter is enough for me.
The thing with Syrna is that she was made by a friend who was also in the DB. Saronyx is a character I made myself. Much better, in my opinion.
My problem is I get really cool ideas and I start putting them into motion instead of being patient. Eventually I end up with a character with too many directions to go in and no set path lol.
With Hazzan I took a long time in his preparation and I have a set idea that I will make a point in not deviating from.
I also have ADD which might have something to do with it.......just saying.
It's always better to make your own character, by far.
And, yeah...ADD I'm sure has something to do with it.
Anyways, there's a run-on!! Return to the Shadows! All Shall Post!!!!! I commandeth thee!! Get to it! Now! *whip-crack!*
I apologize in advance for not participating in the RO. School has most of, if not all of, my attention. It sounds fun, though... I'll do my best to post.
Well, if you can't post, you can't post. The more the merrier. But, RL takes precedence...sadly.
Just posted, have no idea whats going on, but hey I love RO's lol.
I can't wait to take Hazzan for a test drive
Yes, Jason, I understand. We'll see what happens.
Hehe have fun taking Hazzan for a test drive. Sounds interesting.
So hows school for everyone attending this semester, otherwise, hows life treating you all?
Life, as a whole, isn't bad. I hate my job, but that's what happens when you only make $10 an hour in one of the highest taxed states, and have been making the same for coming up on four years. My job ruins my body and puts me at risk of injury every day. Moral of the story, kids....don't go into appliance delivery! I may sound like fun, and it can be fun, but it isn't fun in the long run! Especially when you boss is a big, fat, greedy a-hole!
But, I get to start training that will eventually lead to a job with Boeing, which is one of the biggest employers out here in the greater Seattle area. Just about everyone I know either has worked for Boeing, works for Boeing, or has a parent or other relative that works there. Three months of training in a field that I already have experience in, and I can start looking at have a much better foot in the door.
Longer post than I usually make. But, hey, you asked!
School is going great! After my first two semesters, I'm surprised at how easy school really is! Of course, my faith in God is stronger now than it's ever been, which might influence the way I look at school...
Boy am i thirsty....
Well I am working on a lot of things now.. I am trying to get some competitions going for you guys... so tell me folks what do you want to see us doing for fun mostly and for the house. I like to think out of the box (mainly cause living in a box is scary).
Are there things in the past you liked but don't see anymore... are there things you see the other houses doing that would interest you... not that i would copy it but an idea can be adapted to fit us as a whole group.
I want input lol
and remember egerious has a new email
My door is open though post here or email me I could care less
Well with the House/Clan RO I'm happy, but I could go for some ACC stuff, but with the ladder coming up idk how well that will work out.
Mainly I'm big about fiction and character development, so anything along those lines are good by me.
personally i cant compete on acc till i can get my back story .... and it has to be approved by muz cause of the content.. cant say much but i'm working on it...
on a side note i just watch "rum diaries" Love hunter and his works i want them do do his hells angles book in movie form.... best writer i ever read... just saying
Never seen "Rum Diaries", but I have seen Apollo 18......which should never be seen if you value intelligence. Stupid rock crabs.
In fact anything that is beyond the scope of retardation, and has become so stupid there are no words for it, my new insult for things of that nature is going to be.....rock crabs.
It's going to be a thing.
"We can't stop here.....this is bat country!"
Okay, I'm gone for a few hours and people are posting. Sweet!
*gets her maid outfit back on and serves the guests*
I'd love some sort of comp that would allow me to write a fiction of a mission for Onyx. Of course, that's just me. And I'm kinda too busy to do much... Sorry.
Maid outfit?! Is this a Tarentum approved maid outfit or just the standard boring one.
And what, exactly, would be "Tarentum-Approved?"
No worries; it's Tarentum approved. I wouldn't wear any other outfit.
And Jason... Good question. hehehe
Well, I thought it was
hehehe *thinks evil thoughts, then regains focus and serves the patrons*
Lol Jason, you have been In Tarentum long enough to know what the hells would be Tarentum approved ;p.Just use the dark part of your imagination then remember that it would be 100 times "worse".
oh and Jason...
Jason: "It was like the Force just vomited on us.”
Most epic thing I have read in sometime.
Yes its getting goooood.... I got my 1/72 scale millennium falcon today after visiting 3 post offices!!!! Been slapping it together! I have photos coming my camera battery died but its awesome!
You know, it wasn't that funny when I wrote it. But, reading it again as a quote...that is just too damn funny. I can't believe that came out of my brain!
And speaking of coming from the brain...that reminded me of one of my favorite webcomics that I haven't read in years. It be funny, in a gamer-nerdy way.
God! Every time I read about the Force vomiting I can't stop laughing! What have I created!?
CAD = Pure WIN
CAD = Tarentum-approved?
I love CAD as well.
Tar-Approved indeed! It's too badass not to be!
Indeed. Now then...Who here is in need of a drink?
I am 34 today ill take s many as you got
Happy birthday! How many you want? I'm sure there's more than enough to go around.
And if the tap runs dry, just dip a glass into the pond.
YFM! I love YFM. Actually, I love all of Ray's work. ^^
*serves extra booze to Egregious*
So what, I win in the run on and the boards go quiet? What's up with that?
Poor Thing. I am actually thinking up a competition idea that I want to submit to Anshar. It would be related to the run on (mostly meant for those that participated but anyone could as long as they read it first).
haha Congrats dude you deserve it mate
drinks on me
Just waiting for another run-on to start up if there is one.
Yep, yay me. I actually didn't know that it was a comp or anything. So, when Anshar made the announcement about winners, and I saw I had a shiny in my inbox, I was a little surprised. I was just having fun!
Tis the best way to win.
Poor Thing. I am actually thinking up a competition idea that I want to submit to Anshar. It would be related to the run on (mostly meant for those that participated but anyone could as long as they read it first).
dolt i cant read
Well, I'm busy with school, so... *goes to a meeting* I'll do my best to reply to the forum.
Be active when you can, Saronyx. I'm doing an online school to help me get a job at Boeing while doing my full-time job, so I'm finding the little bits of time I have to devote to Tarentum. We all have our priorities.
That picture.......made my day.
SO...this should totally be the next caption contest thingys photo...cause it is the epic...
Hmm...I wonder if I could equip my Xterra with that...
I'll have to Photoshop something up. Just imagine a yellow 2006 Nissan Xterra with AT-AT legs.
Legs have to be yellow as well, don't forget that detail.
I think we just stumbled onto yet another competition
We just might have.
And the winner gets a yellow 2006 Nissan Xterra with AT-AT legs
Yeah but where are you going to park it
ok i sent the paper work ill run the contest this week best photo will run as next weeks caption contest photo.... I also started week 2 of the caption contest and sent out the award for this past week.... winner winner chicken dinner
looks like that one needs more bbq sauce !!!!!!!!!!!!!
With AT-AT legs? You can park anywhere you damn well please.
Who won the contest, did you say?
Booo Silentness...More talking..and go do my comp. ;p
Silence is golden, but not here!
And comp shall be participated in after work tomorrow. Horry for Krath-friendly comps!
post post post
Down with the Krath, the Obelisk shall rise again!
And yet.....the Sith will always be the ones that rule the galaxy
And yet, it was a Sith that tossed his master down an exhaust shaft when they were on the verge of TRULLY controlling the galaxy. And all because his son was begging him for help like a baby. What a puss. ;p
Hrm, this order run on makes me wonder if we could pull off a round of run ons that were teams of 2 (or 3) and then the best at the end of x amount of time wins.
i never got on a team x(
oh and MAKE A FRICKEN CAPTION this is all
Jason: I will not deny that Vader was a puss, he was his entire life, but I will say this. Vader did not throw his master down the shaft, Anakin did......that stupid bastard of a kid.
Dranik: Are you talking for the House?
Yes Im talking for the house...like a run on of x prompt (maybe a military thing) that is me, you, and Jason VS Anshar, Egreg, and Scion or something (we could have more teams). But each team would do their run-on privately (through email or something) then at the end submit it to be graded, and the best one wins.
Eh, wussy Sith, still. I'll be Krath until death.
And I like the sounds of this team run-on idea. Maybe it'll start small, but later incarnations I hope will have more of the House involved.
Yay Krath! *high-fives Jason*
I do too, Im just trying to figure out how it would actually work...I mean, we would have to have judges that were not participating in the events
*high fives with Saronyx most enthusiastically*
Well, if need be, we might have to go outside the House to get judges. Maybe tap someone from the DC to do it. Or, do it elimination bracket style; have those that sit out for a round be the judges, then when a team gets eliminated, they become the judges.
You people really should get on IRC more often lol.
And yea, I thought about going to the DC, seeing if we could get someone (maybe our new HM or even Muz!) to be our judges. Im really going to have to run this idea by Anshar.
I'm down for that.
Well, I downloaded an app to my phone and tablet yesterday to let me get on IRC when I'm out and about. Well, not with my tablet so much...that needs a wifi connection, but I can chat and not be bound to the computer so much. Gotta love Android! Just wish my phone had a bigger screen. Dumb pre-paid phone. Can't wait until I can upgrade in October.
I'm too busy for IRC.
If another RO is started, I'm going to try again to post something, but there's still no guarantee.
Oh, I'm sure there's gonna be another RO. With the success of the most recent one, there's bound to be another.
Im sure there will be one too...just dont ask me what its about or when..cause I dont know
What's it about Dranik, and when is it?
Dont make me put on a bowtie and get a sonic screw driver to come after you with!
Is that a threat or a promise?
Uhh, its both! Cause, bowties are cool.
*listens* NOOOOOOO there are too many crickets in here now, quick someone lightsaber em
only have 2 entries for the caption contest and 1 picture submission.... sadface
I submitted to both of your pic contests.
Also good luck on the Voice comp.
You get on IRC Jason!!!!
Sorry, I was at a friend's place last night. So, no IRC for me!
*rocks back and forth trying to hide from the silence* Make it go away, someone make it go away.
*puts on some music*
There. No more silence.
*listens for a few seconds, then drops in a Metallica CD*
There. Better ;p
But I don't know how to dance to Metallica...
Usually you run around and punch people in the face. Just don't slip in the beer.
What is this "dance" thing that you speak of? I only know of head banging and air guitar. Oh, and the air drums. All the good, wholesome things that any metalhead knows.
No no now, dont forgot the girls with the stripper poles...you can do that to Metallica too..
Well yeah, I suppose you could do that as well. I was speaking in general metal terms, though. Not sure how many strippers dance to Lamb of God. That would be cool, though.
Im sure their are some out there that do...I know Ive heard of stranger songs for them to dance to...
Maybe I just need practice then...
Ummm...well im sure we can install a stripper pole next to the bar if you would like? ;p
*grabs a hammer*
So hopefully we will have a major competition starting very very soon for the House, I hope to see every one of you participating in it.....If not, I will feed you to ummm...something very bad.
That would, indeed, be bad.
Looking forward to a comp!
Oh hey. I was told this is the real Ale Pond and the other one's just an imposter. Anyway, new guy here. Ale for everyone?
WOOOT DRINKS !
*holds out his mug" Yes please.
Welcome to Tarentum! Here at the Ale Pond, you will find random bits of insanity and the occasional useful tidbit of information. But, it's normally just drunken antics.
*pulls out his flask*
What are you talking about Jason, we don't drink here.
Then...why is it..called the...Ale..Pond..? ;p
*shrugs and continues drinking out of his flask*
*takes Hazzan's flask away and burns it in fire*
No flask for you!
*takes out his back-up flask*
Nope, no drinking at all...
*takes flasks and glasses and such, fills them with ale, and serves the patrons* Greetings, Tenda.
*steels Hazzan's drink and pours it out*
That is a good way to lose a hand foo!
*serves Hazzan again and takes away Dranik's drink*
Looks like someone's taking sides.
*looks at where his drink was* awwww
So I have to say that was one hell
of a discussion on IRC today.
Lucky for me, I have pain pills that make me just......just not care
Aw man, did I miss something good?
Just a super intense discussion on the aspects of ToR and the DB.
You know, I was so going to make this a sticky topic and remove the old one...but I cant figure out how (also know as, the options to do such do not exist for me)...*mutter*
Well, find someone who can, for crapping out loud!
I see how it is, my link scares everyone off.
Well, mIRC isn't working for me anymore. I tried uninstalling and installing it again and and nothing.
I never could get mIRC to work. I tried a couple different programs, and right now I'm using one called XChat. Seems to work just fine, and it even lets you monitor multiple channels. So, maybe check that one out.
But ummm..you were on irc yesterday??? *is so confused*
Yea, I beat it into submission
*tries to think of something to say, but instead draws a blank and serves another round to all of the patrons*
*sends Hazzy a few extra rounds* Cheers!
*steals the bottle opener and hides it in Jason's pocket*
Why you people no chat no more. Silence is bad! Tarentum Demands talk!
Silence is bad, mmmkay?
Silence: the one thing you break by saying its name.
I hope the reason that it's so quiet in here, is that everyone's working on those comps that Anshar and Dranik are putting out. I know I am.
My excuse is still school. Sorry. :/
Well, the crossword is quick. Took me, like, 5-10 minutes. At least it'd be something.
*looks away from her essay for a moment* Maybe when I'm done with my homework...
*shudders* Ugh, essays. Remember those from high school. So glad I'm going through a tech school; college isn't my thing.
I'm going to a liberal arts school, majoring in religion. A lot of essays shall be written. -.-
Religion? That's a hell of a thing to be studying. Good luck with that.
Thanks. I'm really looking forward to it. ^^
If anyone notices the DB site today, it appears that Aoril Fool's has struck again...it's inverted.
It was actually a pretty good April fools gag Though, almost as good s the one when they reversed the ranks and Firefox (sitting GM) became an INI so he used his powers to fix it, so when they changed everything back he was actually an INI.
Though it is a bit annoying when you have work to do on the website. I bet today will see the least amount of db work ever.
Okay Everyone, Drinks are on our newest EQ 1, so everyone go Demand that Hazzan gives you your drinks!
Yay for new person! And, I think Hazzan should buy us drinks just because he hasn't posted in a while. ;P
I agree. It's Hazzan's turn to pay for drinks. Until then, I shall provide entertainment.
*dances for all of the patrons*
Thanks all for the support, and incredible thanks to both Dranik and Anshar for the reccs.
By order of the newest Sith Warrior and new Rollmaster of Tarentum, I say bring on the booze!
*opens the loading bay doors for a truck filled with kegs*
Excellent! *helps unload the truck*
Wait...you got promoted!!??!? Crap...I mean, congrats! Er, yeah....great, now we're both EQ1's... *mumbles something nasty under his breath*
Thats what I meant by drinks were on our newest EQ1. I didnt mean we had a transfer ;p
Yeah...when I went back and reread that, it made sense. No idea what was going through my head at the time.
You mean you ever know whats going on inside that head of yours?
Ever so rarely.
So my new saber came in to day, I think its the epic. You should go check it out ;p
Really? The Dooku style? Never been a fan of that curved hilt style.
Lol I like it, and it goes with my eventual chosen saber style pretty well.
Well, too each their own, right? I still don't know which of the canon styles I prefer, but I've liked a standard straight hilt. Eventually, when I have the rank, I'll be dual wielding. That's badass in my book. ;p
Who doesn't want two lightsabers?
That's what I figure. ;p
I'd take two lightsabers if I could. But with the way things are going right now, I don't think I'll even make it to DJK.
That's only two promos away. Just plug away in school, get through that, and come back strong. The DB will always be here, ready and waiting to reward you for that which you put in. The nice thing, is that the early ranks are easy to get out of. Once you get into the Equites, it's a little harder to get promoted. I mean, hell, I've been a Priest for-freakin-ever!
But this summer, I'm going to be an intern for a ministry. Which means I still won't have time for DJB stuff. Then school again in the fall... -.-
Holy crap(literally). When are you gonna be done with all that? The next ice age? ;p
haha nope. The rapture is coming before then.
I have no idea when I'll be able to participate again.
I thought the rapture was supposed to have happened sometime last year? Oh yeah, that's right...that math guy got his calculations wrong...again.
Well, when the Mayans are proven wrong just like Y2K, and you're done with school, the DB will still be here.
And here's something that I think everyone will get a kick out of. Here's my girlfriend's 2 year-old daughter, wielding the weapon of the Jedi on Easter. Later we ran around on the front yard, and she chased me around swinging it like she knew what to do with the damned thing.
Lets see how many people I confuse by changing this topic's location and closing the old one.
Well, you certainly confused me. But only for a moment. The Holocron indicates a sticky, correct?
If the holocron is the triangle thing in the circle then yes ;p
Yes, that's a holocron...
Well it seems that you may have been the only one to figure it out....
I am a Star Wars nerd, after all.
I'd be surprised if I trully was the only one who knew what that pyramid was...
No no no, not what I meant, I meant figure out where the ale pond went...cause, you know, no one else has posted since I put it as a sticky
....I guess everyone else is just a bunch of slackers! ;p
Actually, I'm busy with RL.
Also, about the Rapture... Only God the Father knows when that'll be. Human calculations will always be wrong.
not to open up a theological discussion on here, even though i do believe this thread is for talking about pretty much whatever...i do recall being told that the bible does say something along the lines of "man shall not know the date." or something to that effect. i don't personally believe, but i don't knock anyone that does. that's a totally personal choice, and one of the great things about this country: freedom of worship.
Lol, I sometimes wonder just how far the founding fathers would have wanted the notion of freedom of worship to go. They built the Constitution to last and they were correct in that the world would change, but to the extent that one man in DC could have a real time chat with a man in China... I would love to see their faces, how they would process the information, if they could.
And dont diss the Mayans. Our calendar is 12 months, 365 days. Theirs is a couple thousand years. They never said that the world would end. Some jackass in modern times prolly figured that since the calendar ends or more correctly, resets in 2012, it must be the end of the world.
Here is a better question. Why are we all worried about this? Assuming Doomsday happens, as the lyrics of Anna Nalick's song goes:
'Cause you can't jump the track, we're like cars on a cable
And life's like an hourglass, glued to the table
No one can find the rewind button, girl.
So cradle your head in your hands
And breathe... just breathe,
Oh breathe, just breathe
Might as well enjoy the ride.
Well, it'll happen one day. Even scientists know that someday the world will end. I'm enjoying life as much as I can in college.
Wow. It's been a couple of months, and I'm the last one that posted? Really? Alright then...
Whoever posts today gets three free drinks and one free drink for every day after today that they post. This offer ends at midnight, DJB time.
(I will not be on the whole time, so after I leave, feel free to get the drinks yourself.)
Well, looks like I'm the only one that checks the MB...so...free drinks for me! w00t!
Nope. You didn't post that day.
You do get free drinks for posting again though.
*dresses in her maid outfit and serves Jason*
Yes! Something free! *happily takes his drink and does a little dance, sauntering off towards the edge of the Pond*
...didn't this thing used to be bigger?
Yes, but unfortunately, lack of people has dried the pond up a little. Hopefully more people will join us soon.
They better. Maybe now that I'm AED, I can make it a mandate, or something. Executive order it, or some crap.
Speaking of people joining us, you've made a sudden return from the nether world of RL, Saronyx. Bit of a break from school or something?
Summer break. I have a job though. But yes, I have a break from school.
Sweet. Having a break from the education is always good...avoid the burn-out. And job is equally good, keeps the mind stimulated. And money coming in, which is most important of all ;p
Well, money isn't everything. It pays bills, but that's about it.
Agreed, but it certainly makes life much easier. I'm tired of struggling at a shit job, making a shit wage, that essentially only pay my insanely high truck payment and most of my gas. I can't even afford to live on my own, or pay my own insurance. Either things need to be cheaper, or I need to make more money. I wish things didn't have to be like that, but they are. The economy is f-ed, and I need to make all the money I can to just start getting somewhere in life again.
My job is a minimum wage job, I'm not even going to try to live alone right now. I'm just happy to be working.
Having a job is a good thing right now. Still almost 9% of the country doesn't have one, with millions just having given up looking.
My current job does pay much above Washington's minimum wage...I make 10/hr, and min. wage is, like, 9.60 or something like that. I've been making 10 for a little over 4 years, with no raises. My new job, that I start on next Monday, won't start out paying much better, but gets me back into the aerospace industry. It's my foot back in the door, and that's what I'm looking for.
I think Lamb of God's song "Bootscraper" accurately depicts how I feel about my current job...
Watch the broken common man
Drown his sorrows at unhappy hour.
Dirty and sweaty
With just enough to get by.
Calluses on his hands calluses on his soul
Hard-boiled son of a bitch
Scraping away on the down hill grind.
It's a means to an end, a mean end for most.
Death and domestication ends in shattered hopes
Can't see the hand at the other end of the leash.
Turn and bite.
Turn and bite the hand that bleeds you dry.
Throw yourself a bone, no one else will.
Compromise leads to self-loathing
Money the excrement of labor.
And you don't get to keep shit
Except politics and power trips and a bad breath down your neck.
For I have toiled in the halls of the mighty
And not received a teardrop in a bucket.
The world doesn't owe me a thing
But you do (Motherfucker).
So crooked when you die they're gonna have to screw your ass into the ground.
As life slowly unravels
With nothing to show but wasted time and dust
A thousand points of lies falling on the deafened funeral eardrums of the blind masses.
Rise above, extract your life.
Will you look within
Then turn around and bite?
Day by day the mask suffocates your life
Is this any way to live?
No fucking way.
I'm glad that you're getting a better job.
Also, I like your signature.
Thanks, on both. Photoshop tutorial websites come in handy
One day, I'm going to get an awesome signature like that. One day...
Well, send me an idea of what you want, and maybe a picture or two you'd want, and I'll see what I can slap together for you.
I want a pic of my character first and foremost.
I'm not good at art, and I don't have much money. So, as soon as I get a pic, I'll let you know what to do with it.
Who said anything about money? If you think I'd do it only as a commission, you're horribly mistaken. I'm nowhere near good enough with Photoshop to warrant that kind of expectation.
And as for a character pic...do you really think I draw mine? Seems like you're unfamiliar with Dragonball Z. I just use (and have always used) the image of Trunks, and edited it in some way. I'm trying to work on my drawing skills, but as with anything, that's a slow process.
I say, if you want a cool sig, search the internet for a picture you like. Send it to me, either the link or the file, with your idea, and I'll see what I can do for ya.
I actually am familiar with DBZ. I noticed your pic is Trunks with purple hair.
Alright, I'll see what I can do.
Well, Trunks with DARKER purple hair. More a royal purple, versus lavender. Or Krath purple, as I like to call it.
I look forward to seeing what you come up with. Just shoot me an e-mail when you're ready!
I thought I was the only one that called that color Krath purple...
Hmm...and I thought I came up with calling it that. Looks like we were both wrong!
Or are we both right? Great minds do
think alike, right?
Yes, that is indeed true. And it's only fitting that we're both Krath.
So, are you ready for another drink?
*looks down into his mug, which is empty and has the dried remains of a long forgotten ale in the bottom*
I would most certainly say so. Fill 'er up!
Yes sir, Mr. Aedile, sir. *fills the empty mug with ale*
Is there anything else I can do for you?
*begins cleaning up, listening to the crickets chirp*
So... The Ale Pond will be here for whenever Phase 1 of the Crusade is over...
*walks out of the surrounding forest with theme music... sounds alot like Hammer Time.*
"Cant touch this!"
Haha, most epic. Welcome to the Tarentum Ale Pond, where drinks are usually paid for! Today, we are celebrating the end of phase 1 of the Crusade, as well as activity returning to the Pond! Or puddle, at the moment.
So today, drinks are on me!
Thank ye kindly.
*takes a swig.
so how are things, oh baroness?
Things are okay. I'm happy to be active in the DB. I hope I can keep my activity.
How about you, oh Battle Team Leader of the Jen Kaari?
pretty good here too, tbh i was hoping for 2 maybe 3 more members, but the turnout for the ad i emailed out has been fantastic!
course, it can always be better
, that is to say: gotta recruit em all! Tarentum! (think pokemon intro music theme, youtube if you don't know)
*takes another swig.
Oh, I agree. The more, the merrier!
(I am familiar with Pokemon.)
Now, if only everyone else would show up here. Especially Jason. I'd like to serve my Master again.
meh, whatevs! i'll drink for everyone!
*orders 7 extra drinks*
errm, give me some variation with those? :p
Okay, all but one drink the same?
I'll prepare seven different drinks for you as you need them.
This makes me an alcoholic doesn't it?
or do you use, synth-ale? *eyes narrowed suspiciously*
I usually use alcohol, though I can use synth-ale. That's your choice. ^^
So, what would you like next?
i wonder what Dark Side Force cooking would be like?
This is a bar, not a restaurant.
*serves another round*
*picks up mug of foaming rich brown ale*
looks like fine dining to me!
*takes a hearty swig*
Haha this isn't fine dining. Maybe fine drinking, but not fine dining.
Woo, promotion! Drinks are on me!
*runs around like a little girl until someone joins*
whooo! promotion for Nyx!
*joins Saronyx running around like a little girl*
*runs to get a drink for her BTL and sets it on a table before continuing the run-around* Wooooooooo!
What drinks are being served? I like drinks!
What drinks do you like? I believe we have something to suit your taste.
Soda of all varities, water, juice, beer, wine coolers,schnapps, buttershots, etc. Maybe a Tarentum logo umbrella in it?
I've never had a buttershot...
*hands one to Ernordeth*
EDIT: IRC is failing, so I'm sorry if I can't get back on.
It's just butterscotch schnapps...really easy to just drink the whole bottle at once
It sounds good. But, unfortunately, the Baroness can't drink, lest people want to serve themselves.
How can you be in the Ale Pond and not drink?
I'm the one that takes care of the Ale Pond. I can't drink and take care of something at the same time.
I believe this is up for debate. Lev, what say thee?
*stops running around in a circle like a girl, straightens up and gets all serious, dark vibe included and stares at Saronyx"
you haven't been drinking?
i want to see a drunk Saronyx! Change approved!
Haha, nah. I don't feel like getting drunk today.
as you wish, but we're saying you CAN
Just cause I can doesn't mean I necessarily should.
Maybe one day.
"Can," "should, " all in the future! live in the NOW... maaan (stoner voice)
In a galaxy far, far away from us in the future I hear there's an America with these United States and some of there presidents have even been alcoholics in our future, but their past. Crazy isn't it? Pathetic life forms only use a small part of their brain. Their "lightsaber" is made of plastic.
Haha, stupid people.
"It's a party in the USA!" in my best Miley voice
I agree with Sayrah.
Also, Hi Sayrah. Welcome to the Tarentum Ale Pond. What would you like to drink?
Next round is on me!
in that case... Romulan Ale? you know the blue stuff? (or green sometimes)
also welcome Sayrah!
I'll take a shot glass and a bottle of Henri IV Cognac Grande Champagne.
*fills the orders and delivers them to their orderers* Anything else for you guys?
A few more bottles of that. It's only worth $2,000,000 USD
But we don't use USD.
What is the current value of Galactic Credits to USD?
Um... I'm not sure...
*narrows eyes suspiciously*
how did you guys know what USD is?
The Force is a powerful ally.
yea, should have seen that one coming.
*downs the rest of the ale with a grimace
*horsley, "nother one please!"
Coming right up!
*serves to Levathan, skating instead of walking*
Some tater tots and nachos to share...please use the nacho cheese made from blue milk
This isn't a restaurant lol
I guess it's time we turn this into a restaurant/cantina?
Hm... Do I have permission from the House summit to start serving food here? I don't want to do anything without their permission...
"It's not easy being drunk all the time. Everyone would do it if it was easy."
The Tarentum Ale Pond motto!
How else are we to combat drunkeness
With food! Scion apparently doesn't object, or he would have said something.
So, who wanted nachos?
All 23 pages of us!
actually i could also do with some nuts, i love nuts!
HAHAHA what kind of nuts?
Cashew, pistachio, steamed, any kind! i'm just REALLY craving nuts... damn romulan ale...
but yea, if we're going to get food, won't we need a cook?
You're right... Who will be our cook? And don't look at me; I dress in maid outfits and serve people.
i'd just have too much fun tasting the food, most of it won't come out the kitchen :p
nomination for Anshar?
Hm... Anshar would make a good cook...
I second the nomination!
We will now accept votes
Cashew, pistachio, steamed, any kind! i'm just REALLY craving nuts... damn romulan ale...
Romulan? Dude, this isn't Star Trek.
*pops the top of a Corellian Ale and takes a long swig from the bottle, casting a disdainful look upon Levathan*
pifft! i wanted blue stuff!
care to suggest something?
Blue Milk and Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough whipped vodka?
That sounds good...
My wife likes making frozen chocolate milk with it lol
omg that sounds epic!
i demand this on the new menu!!
*serves said drink to Levathan*
I'm way ahead of you.
+1 for Ernordeth
*mixes one for Ernordeth and serves it to him*
What are the numbers for the Yridian Lottery?
For last night? They are:
07 22 38 56 69 and the bonus ball is14!
Did you win?
I had the first set but not the last...so I won something!
Most excellent! Would you like me to cash in the ticket for you?
Yes, please! And the next round is on me!
*scans the lottery ticket. The number "500" pops up*
You won 500 credits!
*cashes said ticket and hands Ernordeth 500 credits*
*leviathan looks in puzzled*
what just happend? lol
I won 500 credits and bought you a drink to shut you up
You can't win if you don't play! It's the Yridian Lottery!
Lev did you enter Shirley Jackson's lottery?
Ahh! now THAT i did! i hear first prize is her wardrobe though..... not sure if i want to win at this point.
Lol are you familiar with her short story?
know about it.. roughly, never actually read it though. after being forced to (over)analyze all sorts of literature in english classes, i tend to stay away from anything claiming to BE litriture.
It's quite a good short story. But basically it's population control and the hunger games utilized this story for inspiration. The winner of the lottery is sacrificed by being stoned to do
now when you say "stoned"
*points to the five leafed plants growing by the bar*
Yes, it's a lovely ivy, isn't it? I'm about to put some rods in the soil so that the vines can climb up.
/me starts a fire
*glares at Ernordeth* Wood fire or grease fire?
If you want to take over the Ale Pond, good luck to you. That makes you responsible for damages and financial losses due to your dragon. Which means your lottery winnings will not cover all of it. Plus, you'll have to do all of the tedious physical labor of not only cleaning the Ale Pond, but also keeping it clean, serving the customers, and looking attractive. *erotically poses for all of the men in here, still wearing a maid outfit* You think you can handle all of that?
/me waves his hand
All problems are solved.
You're just a Protector. How can you solve everything with a wave of your hand?
If you say so. *resumes her duties as the baroness*
hey now! past experience doesn't count, that was your past life!
now if you'll excuse me, i'm going to eat that dragon *drool*
You can use our grill to cook it, if you'd like.
*picks up the ashes from burnt wood and such, places them in the now plantless plant pot, and tosses it all outside*
also! i shall partake in a Levacake for a scrumptious dessert!
Okay, we have Levacake on our menu now.
What was it we named after Ernordeth?
*writes it down*
So, ErnoMaid is some type of drink, and LevaCake is a dessert.
ErnoMaid: one part Corellian rum, two parts coffee?
LevaCake: chocolate cone-shaped cake, filled with molted chocolate lava and covered in even more chocolatey lava? Or served with ice cream?
And a some cookie dough
To your drink or Lev's dessert?
Also, new item: The Firebird. Scotch with a bit of cinnamon and a touch of honey.
My drink of course
Okay. The ErnoMaid: One part Corellian Rum, two parts coffee. Served with cookie dough in a bowl. Sound good?
*writes it down* I'll have someone make menus sometime soon.
I'll take 2 orders of ErnoMaid
*still in a maid outfit and roller blades, Onyx expertly serves two ErnoMaids to Ernordeth*
/me finishes both of them
A fast drinker, I see?
Congratulations to Ernordeth, our newest Aedile! Next five rounds are on me!
I'm buying any food anyone wants too!
i want kryat dragon steaks skewered a Dathomeri Night siser's spear, roasted over a Kessel Spice fire with a side order of steamed veggies
another Levacake for dessert
and 3 Ernomaid! cuz 1 just ain't enough.
Alright. *serves the first ErnoMaid, then gets out a notepad to write down the order* How do you want your steak cooked?
I'll have what he's having!
How would you like your steak?
Okay. Since Lev isn't replying, I'll go ahead and put your order in as well as go get your drink.
*skates to the kitchen, returning a few minutes later with an ErnoMaid. She hands the drink to the Aedile*
Yay! The next round is on me again, because Miami won!
err, you DO realise you can refuse outrageous orders right?
also i'll go with medium rare
*skates into the kitchen* The other steak is medium rare.
*guests hear food being put on the grill. Saronyx emerges with two more ErnoMaids, one for Lev and one for Ernordeth. She gives each man his drink*
*grins and whispers to Erno,* you think we should make her wear those weird pins and put on a creepily overly cheerful attitude on?
Indeed I do!
*looks at Lev, then at Ernordeth*
What are you two whispering about?
How awesome the game was last night!
Aventine wanders in, takes a seat at the bar, and smiles at the purple Twi'lek on the other side of the bar.
Could I get a burger and a pint of ale?"
Saronyx, I'm buying. Make it 2 pints.
Aventine glances towards the speaker, recognizing him as the Aedile.
Thank you, kind Sir. How goes the House?
You got it!
*turns to the little window and tells the cook to make a burger before pouring two pints of ale*
I haven't seen you around here before. You new? *hands her the pint*
Aventine sips the ale. It tastes different, stronger, but still really good.
Amused, Aventine looks at the Twi'lek and responds teasingly.
New today, long lost friends tomorrow. I'm Aventine. What's your name?
I'm Saronyx, Jedi Hunter and caretaker of the Ale Pond. But you knew that already.
*Saronyx smiles at the fellow Krath*
Aventine smiles and with a twinkle, gazes into Saronyx's eyes.
Was it that obvious? You most certainly do look like a Saronyx.
*The burger has finished cooking. Saronyx serves the burger to Aventine*
The House is well. Aventine...is that a reference to Rome?
Aventine thanks Saronyx and takes a bite of the burger.
Mmm, this is quite good!
Aventine was the southernmost of the hills that Rome was built on top of. But it's such a beautiful word in its own right. How about Ernordeth?
Hello Aventine! it is indeed a beautiful name, welcome to the house
*collapses and an pale energy is visibly seen leaving his body*
It is a great name. Ernordeth has no real meaning, just a blending of Earn your death. The last name Puer-Irae is Latin for Child of the Wrath.
*collects two steaks from the kitchen, then skates over to Lev and Ernordeth to serve them*
Can I get you guys anything else?
*gives a thumbs up while wolfing down the steak, then takes a pause*
you've been running around for awhile now, take a break?
Pour yourself a drink, Saronyx!
Aventine, burger in tow, moves to Ernordeth's table and grabs two chairs, one for Saronyx.
Those steaks look good. How were your days?
The steaks are delicious. My day is going great, how has your day gone? Enjoying the Brotherhood?
Indeed. I'm coming up with a backstory.
That's good. We use our own Wikipedia for character histories, if you wanna check any out or work on it here's a link to the main page: http://wiki.darkjedibrotherhood.com/view/Main_Page
You can look someone specific up by name if you'd like or just browse.
*pours a cup of coffee and sits next to Aventine *
In real life my day has been busy and boring.
Aventine looks towards Saronyx with interest.
What did you do?
I'm training to work in a prison.
But now you can have fun and play?
Congratulations are in order! Aventine has been promoted to Novice and is near Acolyte already!
Whoo! congrats Aventine!
you want the customary ale on the head now or a double after Acolyte?
Aventine grins and looks at the three.
Thanks. Levathan, I think I'll take the double after Acolyte.
Maybe you should try out IRC so you can get that double?
*nods in agreement*
IRC is a great way to chat with people. Except UnderNet is epically failing for some of us... But it's great!
Yep and there's some trivia at 8:30pm EST on IRC in #tarentum winner will get a Legion of the Scholar
yessss join usssss
(promise not to be as creepy on IRC)
I was on earlier, then kicked off, and I haven't had any success connecting since.
Did you try downloading from the link I posted?
It's great to hear you were on. From what I can see it might connect better with a different client. I hope you enjoyed it and hope you're able to return tonight for trivia!
Saronyx, it wouldn't work anyway. mIRC is for PCs only.
Oh, I'm sorry, Aventine. I wish I could help you more.
Prepare the drinks, milady
*goes behind the bar to prepare ErnoMaids for everyone*
*goes up to nyx behind the bar and hold out a bear pin with "have a guuuuureat day!" on it
you want to smack me yet?
lol nah. I need to set a good example for the BT.
*accepts the bear pin with a giggle* It's shiny...
We have a new Acolyte!
Whoooo! grats Aventine!
*orders 2 ales for everyone*
time for some fuuuun
*dumps two ales on Aventine's head as she skates by, then serves two ales to everyone* Congrats, my friend.
Aventive shivers as the cool ale flows downward with a tingle running up through the spine. A bit excited, Aventine reacts, leaping up, hugging Saronyx, and pressing the ale-soaked clothes against Saronyx's robes. Thats what friends do.
Aventine then bows towards the other two, now hooting and laughing, at the table.
Thank you, my friends.
/me pulls Saronyx to the side and whispers
Go prepare another round of drinks
*skates to the bar and prepares another round for everyone. Saronyx serves them all*
So are you a Sonic a bartender?
LOL I'm not. I just enjoy serving Tarentum.
*breaks out into a dance*
Yea! do the Tarentum Momentum!
(look up Kylie minogue locomotion
Do the Tarentum Shake!
*dances* I'm sexy, and I know it!
*me claps hands, suddenly spinning club lights,laser show effects and a low mist begins to form*
Hehehehe, knew this would come in handy, when i had it installed :p
So you think you can dance?
Hehe, I know I can dance.
Now, can I dance well? That's the real question.
*watches sexy dance and joins in*
i'd say so!
join us Erno! and you too Aventine!
Tarentum has itself a new Protector!
Get some drinks for us, Saronyx.
Aventine grumbles. The show was quite entertaining before Ernordeth brought it to a sudden halt with a loud "Silence." Ahh, the downsides of promotions. If Saronyx poured ale over Aventine's head again, there would be war. Albeit, in the backroom, with the wine and cooks and whatever, but it would be in private. Whatever the outcome, Aventine would not lose.
Alright, in honor of our newest PRT, I'd like to make a new drink - the Aventini! So, Aventine, how should the drink be made?
Aventine smiles at Saronyx and grins with something twisted deep within the soul.
Saronyx, I would like the drink to be shaken, not stirred, with a hint of strong liquor, and a generous amount of aphrodisiacs. I want something that'll get you tipsy and insanely horny.
You got it!
*begins mixing a vodka with a bit of grenadine. She shakes it up, then adds dark chocolate shavings to the rim, a few shavings fall in the glass. She garnishes with a strawberry then serves it to Aventine*
Aventine drinks it. It tastes good! It tastes better then good. Aventine is seeing stars. The adrenaline rush kicks in. At the same time, a raw hunger for skin, lust develops in Aventine's belly. Gazing into Saronyx's smiling, beautiful face, the insatiable urge overcomes Aventine.
Mmm, it needs a little tweaking...
Aventine looks at the other two at the table.
If you don't mind, my work is cut out for me.
Aventine looks back at Saronyx, who is a bit confused by it. Without a hestitation, Aventine takes Saronyx's hand.
"We'll need to look for the perfect liquor for this. To the cellar, we go!"
Unsuspectingly, or perhaps half suspecting, Saronyx's nods and shows the way.
Twenty minutes passes. Aventine walks through the door, cheeks rosy red, clothes a little rumpled, with a bottle of cheap, poor quality liquor. It hadn't occurred to get something more expensive, something to keep up the charade. Saronyx's followed a second later, looking composed as if nothing had happened.
I think this is the perfect liquor for my drink...
Not very enthusiastic about the liquor, Aventine pays more attention towards Saronyx, who momentarily giggles before responding that it is a cheap liquor and would find a more fitting home in a junker. Aventine sighs and tosses the liquors towards the waste extraction, while a last second dive by Ernordeth saves it from an uncertain fate.
/me acts as if nothing happened
Saronyx could you get a meal and some drinks started. The whole House is going to have a feast in honor of the Crusade and the Special Forces team is soon to be announced
You got it!
*gets her skates on and begins taking orders, soon delivering drinks then food to everyone*
But first, a birthday shot for Seren!
For Seren! Did she enjoy her birthday?
Happy birthday, Seren! *passes out birthday shots to everyone, as well as a cake to Seren*
/me, slaps himself and uses temporal rift under the ale pond to go back 24 hours
Happy Birthday Seren!
/me comes back, and slaps himself for being late.
haha you feel better, Lev?
MUCH better, thank you!
manners after all people! manners!
Let's get some decorations up. Soon our the planet we're heading to for the Dark Crusade will be announced and our 8 Special Forces members!
*gives decorations to everyone, then goes to prepare for the Crusade*
*sighs, and looks around*
feels like it's been more than a month, in a good way.
Time feels as if it's been slow, yet fast all at the same time.
I agree with Ernordeth.
Aventine reels back in the seat and looks at the three compatriots.
Perhaps more was shared and experienced in the short amount of time then in the months prior.
Time is of the essence
Drinks all around! The Crusade is over until next time!
*puts her skates and maid outfit on to serve drinks to the Tarenti*
What's everyone having?
Aventine turned to look at Saronyx.
Ale! The first round is on me. And... nice skates.
Thank you. *smiles as she serves everyone.*
*Levathan comes walks through the entrance, blood stained, singed and still smoking. sit at a booth and lets his head fall to the table with a thump.*
Ahh the wood is nice and cool.
can i get something cold please?
*splashes a bucket of ice cold water all over Levathan*
Aventine cracks up at the now very wet and still very ugly Levathan.
Not quite yet, Saronyx. He still looks like a battle casualty!
ErnoMaid for me! I think Seren would like a Dragonbreath
You got it! *mixes one ErnoMaid and one Dragonbreath and serves them both*
now i'll take a dragonbreath.
*looks at himself in a well decorated hand mirror, seeing the messy hair.*
... better make that three
Okay! *mixes three Dragonbreaths and serves them to Lev*
Thanks, Nyxie Stix. When is Phoenyx gonna show up?
Arch throws his coat over a hanger and sits down at levs booth.
I'll take a whiskey, in a glass and not on me like Lev please
Ernordeth, I don't know yet.
*pours whiskey in a glass and serves the glass to Archean* It's nice to see you here, dear friend.
End of the Crusade? When you earn DJK? When Detox by Dr. Dre is released?
So many questions!
I'd like an ErnoMaid and a round of drinks for everyone for my promotion
I'm just hanging for the results to come out, might as well drink til they do.
another whiskey please!
Let's make the rest of the night on me. Two promotions today...I'm finally a Knight.
Let's get these frakking results in already!
TWO promos? Pfft...over achiever.
Sith spit! Erno are you dead?
i thought they only ever promoted 2 ranks if you buy the moisture farm!

Leva Cakes for both!
Now let's see if I can the next before winter
Well, an email would have been nice, stating that people replied on here...
Anyway, it's my turn to buy drinks. Because I can.

Egregious! I've missed you! Why are you banned?
*It was a long trip back to the Castle, followed by a long walk to Saronyx's place of solace. A place where people could lose themselves. A place where people can be happy - if only for a few moments. As she opened the doors to the Tarentum Ale Pond, she heard the whole cantina cheer and applaud the newest Dark Jedi Knight. Everyone congratulated the young Twi'lek as she made her way to the bar. Her duties need not be unattended any longer.
"Thank you all. This round is on me, for everyone's hard work throughout the Crusade!"
The patrons erupted in more cheering as the Baroness started pouring and mixing drinks and baking some cakes.*
There, I started a fiction storyline.
Thank you, Raiju!
Now, how about a drink?
Congrats, Nyxie Stix!
Thank you, Ernordeth.
