I aim to teach Jim about a different lifestyle, show him that the worm is not the only thing in life.  We will fill that hole with Eastern philosophy.

Ah, but do you have cake? I think Spesh responds better to cake.

Hee...it's an awesome show. I based a lot of the depictions of the famous characters in this came on their Deadwood portrayals.

I've made it more than halfway through the series at Stray's suggestion. It's quite enjoyable. Stopped a while back when I ended up deciding to move.

Now that I'm mostly settled in, I will try to pick it back up again.

I started it a while back but only made it four episodes in. I enjoyed it but had to stop on account of time constraints.

It has been some years so I decided to just start all over.

Re: Fairchild's Boarding House ((OOC II))
I've not seen the programme save for YouTube clips, but I dreamt whoever plays Swearengen as Swearengen last night. (He was racketeering/trafficking/carrying on in an old abbey in a city in the Upper World that also had a population of raven citizens, only his enemies were closing in and there was a gang war involving bombing a church, derailing a train and and punting a midget, then the cops showed up, but by that time I was preoccupied fighting werewolves)




Mama Avery:
Wheels turned in her mind, but thefact of there being a female brave was.. Interesting...


She's going to go up to Kills Iron Horse and go "Yo, are you Mochi?" isn't she?


quote:
If Rabbit needs clothes, Avery has some spare. She has money, but nothing she'd be willing to trade other then some spare knives.


Rabbit can't accept women's clothing at present, since she's presenting as male to avoid leaving a blatantly obvious trail for the multiple factions of gangsters - and indeed the law - gunning for her.

It'd also get her called berdache by the natives, who'd shortly find out she wasn't, then that she was female...and then all hell breaks loose, since whilst a powerful woman of status would be accepted with a little grumbling, some random whore - worse, menstruating - is anathema to native beliefs on the sanctity of procreation and would be accused of ceremony-poisoning on a level with the Ravenites. Think mediaeval Catholic church.

So yeah, until Rabbit's proved she won't be struck down in the pulpit, so to speak, she's a boy. If Mama Avery's worked out she's not, she'll also have worked out that there must be a good reason for Rabbit to transvest.

Reggie is probably still terrified by the situation, but he's free to do as he will.

Well, at least he doesn't have to go rescue her now.

Janet, please draw a card so I know where to put you in initiative order.

Should've played it on Little Crow - now you'll have to wait for Stockholm Syndrome to set in.

Stray...could Rabbit maybe play Renown now, as "that lad who took on a Ravenite shaman (some rumours say Raven himself) with nothing but a straight razor and made him run away", or is that stretching it?

Sure, you can play Renown. Just be aware that will count as your free card until the next session rolls around.

Re: Fairchild's Boarding House ((OOC II))
In reply to Thunder Walker (msg # 187):

Yeah, Rabbit might draw undue interest from Anglophone Mad Scientists over how that flickin' razor gets described when Rabbit is stressed/tired...but come on, that just makes it more awesome.

(it is firmly a 'lazor' in my head, though.)


edit: on the theme of involvement with that mess, Rabbit will have tried to get a quiet word with Horn Chips about going to see those ritually tortured/killed Ravenites, because it's a thing that Rabbit had a hand in causing but could choose not to see.

Re: Fairchild's Boarding House ((OOC II))
I has just read Rabbit's post. It is so very, very awesome. You rock.

As for the discussion with Horn Chips, I'm confused...does Rabbit want to watch the executions, or not watch them?

Re: Fairchild's Boarding House ((OOC II))
The hilarious thing is that left to his own devices, the cowboy probably would just live in a field and eat beans like in Rabbit's head.

Rabbit feels duty-bound to witness the consequences, despite/because it will be psychologically hard to. If Rabbit has a hand in taking human life she means to look them in the eye, so to speak.
