Yeh.  I am sure Jase will let us know what happened soon :)

But  it is good to be back :)

I reorganized the front page of the wiki while we were away, to start taking account of the recent political changes.

Re: OOC 3
Looking good. :o)

When you have time, could you link an updated version of the Tusk Finances spreadsheet?

In reply to Andalon de Lebeda (msg # 150):

Will do.  If I haven't done it in the next 2/3 weeks -  remind me!

I get to go play 17th century soldiers next weekend (for the first time since the start of Covid) - and I have new learners starting this week.  My memory is not as good as it was ....

Lol, I wish I could say my memory was perfect ... definitely not, these days.

I hope your trip back in time is as much fun as ever.  :o)

Thank you, I am sure it will be.  There will be camping, BBQs, late night drinking around camp fires - and then a bit of Musketry, sword play and a few other bits and bobs.  If we are really lucky we will get a cannon out ...

Oh, and did I mention there will be more BBQs and more late night drinking around a camp fire?  How can it not be fun?  :)

But only for other people  :)  Black powder is magic ....

Did you know that if you throw a handful of black powder onto a  BBQ -  there is a magician's flash and a puff of smoke -  and it puts the BBQ out?

A pile of powder on the crown of someone's hat and a lit match -  there is a magician's flash and a puff of smoke -   and suddenly the hat doesn't have a crown any more.

Pure magic!

Re: OOC 3

 I had the delight of being at a reenactment event once where the grass wadding for the cannon had a hedgehog sleeping in it. Knocked a poor guy off his feet on the other side of the field. ^_^

Re: OOC 3
That is one  LARGE bore cannon!  Much larger than anything we play with :)

I was at a re-enactment many years ago, where burning cannon wadding combined with strong winds and a recently harvested field -  set the battlefield on fire.

Battle cancelled, full scale evacuation of spectators and participants - and a few cars burnt out.  There is a story that one of the cars destroyed belonged to the Fire Safety Officer, from the Local Fire and Rescue Srevice, who had approved the event.  However, I suspect that is apocryphal  ....

Well, thank goodness it wasn't an armadillo, I suppose!

However, I suspect that is apocryphal

More like apocalyptic.   And here I thought people getting beat up with mock swords and halberds, was about the most extreme thing...

If anyone is interested, I have just posted a description of the life that rural commoner lead ...

...  although you should, perhaps, note that most other villages in rural Midmarch are smaller and less sophisticated.

Re: OOC 3
Right.  That is new maps and posts for Groups 1, 2, 3 & 4 - as well as a write-up and map of Outlook.  Whew.  That took a while!

All done today because I go away for the weekend.  It is my first camping trip of the year, so much of tomorrow morning will be spent prepping the  Camping-Car and getting my gear together - then I set off at about lunchtime.  I will be popping in, through the morning, so I can answer short questions, comments etc.

Just to cap it all, my phone is messing about and  I can't get any internet (although calls work OK)  so I will probably be off-line all weekend.  I will get back home Sunday evening, but may not post until Monday.

In reply to DM (msg # 157):

 I can't prove it, but I suspect the hedgehog was fairly small. Understandably, the remains were not available for examination. And yeah, they bring some fairly large toys to places like Tewkesbury, no doubt encouraged by the presence of the beer tent.

Re: OOC 3
Interesting.  I knew there was  a ramming accident about then.  Word had it that they didn't swab the barrel properly and rammed a bag of black powder home onto a glowing ember at the bottom of the barrel.  Which fired the cannon and sent the ramrod flying across the battlefield - which ripped the hands of the rammer to pieces....  I also knew there was a bunch of GW guys involved in hobby.  Never put the two together.

I don't take active roles like that any more.  I leave that to the younger, more energetic chaps.  Normally, when I am working a cannon, I take the part of the Powder Monkey.  That means I am  located some distance behind the cannon, sitting of a box of black powder ....  :)

Re: OOC 3
For various reasons, I am leaving a bit later than I expected.  Therefore, I have opened up the Duelling Salon that I have been promising for a while.

And duels must be agreed OOC before the event and follow the rules laid out in the opening post and at
http://rp.baileymail.net/doku....and:general:duelling

I'll leave you guys to run your own duels - UNLESS it is agreed that the duel is to the death, or someone accidentally gets killed.

To the Pain sounds promising. Say 5 remaining hp or less?

Maybe we should have a law banning this in the city of Tusk :)
