Captain Foulenough stepped into the hall, accompanied by his personal retinue of guards, pages, massueses, seers and personal trainers. Also travelling with him were some of the best performers in all of Ansalon, including the world renowned ForgeFire clan dwarven ballet corps and the WindRiver, famous barbarian poet, who announced his patron's arrival with his latest work.

"Strong as Ox,
Swift like River,
Cool like spring Wind,
For is Captain Foulenough.

And many lovely ladies like,
Many, many wives have.
Many, Many ladies,
And many, many wives.

Kill all enemies,
Strong like Ox,
Kill them fast,
Fast like River.
Is Captain Foulenough."

Despite the fact that it was completely devoid of the basic principles of poetry and had neither rhyme nor meter, not to mention being almost incomprehensible, the work was received by polite applause. The barbarian bowed, the dwarven ballet dancers stood on tiptoes and curtseyed, then the whole group moved into the hall to make way for the next guest...
Laseen sent Tavore
Rushing across the seas
to clasp Coltaine's hand
And closing her fingers
She held crow-picked bones

Airina, hearing the poets announcement, saw the Captain. " Captian." she smiled and bowed before him. " I am Princess Airina , daughter of his Majetsy, King Phillipi the second. I wish you many greetings." she smiled.I am Sailor Moon, champion of Justice. In the Name of the moon, i punish you!!- Sailor Moon to all bad guys

"Ahh... magnifique!" Cpt. Foulenough exclaimed as he beheld the lovely lady before him. "And I am the courageous Cpt. Foulenough, who have vanquished many, many foes. You must have heard of me,yes?" He draws his sword and waves it wildly around, causing several nearby serving girls to duck hurriedly to avoid being impaled. "And this is my sword, which I killed them with. See how it shines." He lifts it up so that the princess can admire its polished sheen, then frowns as he notices a greasy spot.

"AARGH! WHAT IS THIS!!! PHILLIPE!!!"

A small, mousy looking man steps out from Foulenough's retinue, pale beneath his dark tan. "Yes, milord." He squeaked.

"WHY IS THERE GREASY STAIN ON MY SWORD!!!!" the captain thundered. "Guards! Seize the imbecile and have him flogged!!"

As they move to do as he says, he turns back to the princess, sheathing his sword. "Now, where was I? Ah, yes... magnifique!" He steps past the princess to examine a beautiful vase. "Is worth much money yes?"I told you 158 times I cannot stand little notes on my pillow. "We are out of cornflakes. F.U." It took me three hours to figure out F.U was Felix Ungar. It's not your fault Felix: it's a rotten combination that's all.

OOC: Draekus- Nothing Princess Cassandra writes is ever set in Dragonlance, If she wasn't ignoring me I'd ask if she even knows that DL is...haha.

IC: A female minotaur dressed in alluring silk clothing strode in behind the dwarven ballerinas. Knocking several of them over, she curtsied prettily before the princess. She offered a long winded introduction in flowery language, finished by a characteristic belch. She then grabbed a member of the recent arrival's entourage and commenced waltzing about the room.“We pity him. We hate him. We fear him – all because there is a little of him in each of us, though we admit it to ourselves only in the darkest part of the night.”

OOC: make that priest of Branchala!

A young elf priest walks in. He was wearing the earthy green coloured robes of a follower of Branchala, the Bard King, in the style that was popular in the days of Istar. Fine silk, worn like a toga. He wore soft leather sandals, as well as carry what looked like a plain wooden quarterstaff with the wood curling at the top end. A medallion of faith hung from his neck, looking like wild vines encircling a small disk of stone with the depicture of a harp, the symbol of Branchala. His voice was like music. Beautiful, and bringing joy and sorrow to those who heard it.

He had soft brown shoulder length hair, and vibrant leaf green eyes. He also wore a headband, made of wood with a sparkling emerald imbedded at the front, with matching wrist cuffs. He received the invitation a week earlier, and had prayed to Branchala for a good harvest this year for many hours that week. Upon arriving, he smiled when he saw the dwarven ballerinas. "This will prove to be interesting," he said to himself as he stepped through the wooden archway leading to the main ballroom.

Airina looked at the girl and gave her a werid look. She smiled at the Captain ans went off to say hello to the elf. " Hello, sir.

The minotaur lady finishes waltzing, and strolls over to chat idly with the Princess.

"Greetings, Your Most Royal Highness Princess Airina. I have traveled far and wide to reach your Harvest Ball." Then she turned to the noble looking elf standing next to the princess. "And good evening, sir elf! I am Daraka." She curtsied deeply, a little too deeply in fact. She bgan to wobble perilously back and forth, then collapsed in full force on top of Airina. The minotaur's huge body quite covered the princess, and all that could be heard from her were urgent squeeking noises. *Self esteem is overrated*

Kitiara99
08/19/2002 5:52 PM

While Airina stuggled to get out from underneath Daraka, a loud blast sounded outside. The doors to ballroom swung open, seemingly by magic. A blast of air blew in, and the room fell silent as everyone turned to look.

An exceptionally tall elven woman walks in, followed by a small entourage of demons, imps, and goblins. She has deep black hair streaked with dark violet, and skin of alabaster stone. Her hair hangs almost to her waist, untouched by silly hairpeices. She wears robes of a midnight blue velvet, and silver rings of a magical nature adorn her fingers. She pauses for a moment, and then hears the squeeking sounds coming from underneath the minotaur.

With a flick of her delicately boned wrist, the dark elven lady lifts the minotaur high into the air. She spins her around several times, than destroys her with a blast of crimson flame. Airina cowers on the floor.

"I see you do not recognize me, silly girl. I am known among the lesser mortals as Silveraine. The truly knowledgable know my true form, that of the mightiest blue dragon to inhabit these lands since the Age of Starbirth. Arise, little princess!" With another flick of her nimble fingers, Silveraine lifts Airina into the air. For a moment it appears as if she will meet the same fate as the minotaur, but the blue dragon lady sets her down gently on the floor. She stands and gazes imperiously at the so-called princess, waiting for a response.*Self esteem is overrated*

"Ah... magnifique!" Cpt. Foulenough cries as he watches the minotaur sizzle away into nothingness in a pretty burst of colours. "What pretty fireworks. Is good entertainment, yes?" he asks in an aside to one of the recent arrivals, who appears to be a pirest of Branchala.

OOC: (to Draekus) What god is Branchala anyway? A god of music? I've never heard of him. *grins sheepishly*I told you 158 times I cannot stand little notes on my pillow. "We are out of cornflakes. F.U." It took me three hours to figure out F.U was Felix Ungar. It's not your fault Felix: it's a rotten combination that's all.

IC: Jeram couldn't help but stiffle a burst of laughter when the minotaur lady toppled onto the Princess. After she was totaly eliminated by the blue drago in avatar, he helped the Princess up. He smiled, and asked her to dance. He spoke a single note, that sounded like a prayer.

His staff diseappeared, and reapeared near the wall with a protective spell on it to keep anyone from stealing it. Especially the group of kender jugglers he saw entering the ballroom, wearing silly jester costumes.

The blue dragon known as Silveraine watched the Princess waltz about the room. She fingered a few spell components, and toyed with the idea of blasting Airina into many little pieces. Why? Because she was a pyromaniac and liked blowing things up. She settled for a large display of fireworks, than disappeared in a POOF of smoke.*Currently engaged in nightmares as a result of Princess Casandra's most terrifying signature*

The waltzing and innane chatting continued for several hours. Princess Airina was treated to several sad tales of fate and destiny by every man she danced with. She was in ditzy princess heaven.

Suddenly, there was a loud BANG and Branchala, god of the forest and such things, appeared. "I hear there is a ball being held in mr honor!" He boomed in a loud, obnoxious voice. "Naturally, that is very gracious of you, but a little sacrifice would be nice....What's that? No groveling? Come on, all of you, Grovel!" (Many of the lesser minions among Foulenough's entourage fall to the ground and commence groveling.)

"This is not the way I would expect a god to be treated!" Branchala continued. "Most disappointing. Where's my sacrifices, the groveling, the prayers and hymns to the mighty harvest god?" He seemed about to launch into another tirade when...

Sidenote: Airina, quite oblivious, ignored everything that was going on. The poor dear seems to suffer from a very short attention span, memory lapses, and possibly some mental instability.*Thrashing about, still frightened to death by the Princess.*

08/20/2002 9:17 AM

A blast of music interrupted Branchala's tirade. Some innane, ridiculous boy band music announced Habbakuk's entrance. Airina perked up and started to pay attention. Now this was her kind of music!

"Yo Yo there, brother Branchala! Who say's you're the Harvest God? I think I'm much better sutied to that arduous task, being the handsome, manly, noble AND tragic godly being I am."

Branchala scowled at Habbakuk, "And why would you say that?" He boomed angrily.

"Why, of course, silly boy," Habbakuk told Branchala with a ridiculous smile. He snapped his fingers, and music began to play: "I want it that way, Tell me why-eee, I can't be the Haaaaarvest God!" etc...

Branchala, well know to prefer heavy metal music himself, put his hands over his ears and screamed.*Shouting aloud, "Princess Pikachu! She's coming to eat me! Save me!*

08/20/2002 9:25 AM

Habbakuk's musical perfomrance was rudely interrupted by the appearence of another godly being. Chislve was lowered from the ceiling on clear wires, framed by multicolored strobe lights and singing along to Pink's "I'm coming out.."

Habbakuk and Branchala both fell to their knees. "O Chislev, you sexy beast!" Habbakuk cried, completely forgetting about his devoted Princess Pikachu. Chislev reached the floor and stepped on Branchala's nose with her 5 inch spiked heel. Then she turned to address the gathering, some of whom were still waltzing away obliviously.

"AttennnnTION!" She shouted, and both of the male nature gods snapped dutifully to do her bidding. "I am the one and only goddess of nature, Chislev, the (sexy) Beast! This ball is in my honor, so I want that post changed to say Harvest Goddess instead of god. Hop to it!"

Then she strode to the middle of the dancing floor and began to gyrate to her theme song, leaving Airina and her waltzes, ball gowns, and princess-ness in the dust.

*Wondering why on earth she would ever get nightmares from a dinky little cartoon character like Sailor Moon*

Suddenly, a magnificent-looking man dressed in really magnificent robes walked in. His robes so magnificent that he made all magnificent guests in the magnificent hall look unmagnificent.

He sang impressively with his deep impressive voice to make his impressive entrance even more impressive.

"My PRINCESS!!
You are a beach! I'm the sun!
Please let me be your SUN OVER BEACH!!!!
OH YEAH!!!!!!"
He crooned.

"You are as beautiful as the Dum Es Beach!!!!
So beautiful that all beaches don't look like beaches anymore!!
I want you to be my beach!!
Baby baby can I make you my beach??"

As the man sang on, a couple of half-nude exotic-looking dancers appeared out of nowhere and danced an exotic dance. A magical spotlight shone on him, suddenly making him the highlight of the ball.

Then, after singing, everyone in the hall cheered enthusiastically. The man grinned widely and bowed to them, before turning his attention back to the princess.

"Ah, Princess Airina, I am King Ai Mer Beech von Marderfarker the Sixteenth. Ruler of the exotic regions of Marderfarker. It is an honour to meet you!" He said, extending his hand to the totally flawless-looking princess who seem to be flawless at whatever she does.

She blushed, then continued, "Would you care to dance?" The Princess seemed to protest, but Chislev swung her hips out to the side and knocked Airina six feet to the left. Then she smiled seductively at the King.*Self esteem is overrated*

08/20/2002 10:14 AM

Blood, lots of it, gushed out from his nose when the King noticed Chislev for the first time. "It-it w-would be a great honor! Vous êtes beau comme les étoiles!" He spoke the last sentence in his native language... the seldom-used Cuntonese.

Suddenly, he remembered something. "Dis iz an embarassment, but I know not how to dance..." King Ai Mer Beech started to blush like a ditzy lovesick teenager whose fantasy was to kiss her crush passionately. And his nervousness was giving him the thick accent again. "Can yoo teach moi?"

"Realy, somethings I may never understand..."

He left without another word. And would not come back....

Chislev smiled charmingly at the King. "It would be my honor to teach you how to dance. Let me demonstrate with one of these buffoons." She grabbed Habbakuk and swung him about the room, gyrating (how I love that word :D) wildly. When she tired of him, she reached for Branchala, but grabbed Airina by accident.

Chislev danced with wild abandon, hips swinging and arms flailing. Airina looked comical, trying to waltz with the goddess of nature. Before long, Chislev tossed the Princess by the wayside and took King Ai Mer Beech by the hand.

She swung him about the room, his nose spouting blood all over Airina's ballgown. The princess commenced blubbering in a corner. After exactly 2 hours, 24 minutes, and 69 seconds, Chislev collapsed on a nearby couch. Breathing heavily, she turned to the King and said, "You dance quite well, Ai Mer Beech. Perhaps you could go cheer up poor little Airina. It was ever so gracious of her to hold this ball in my honor, and her dress seems to have been ruined. Ah well, the style was so terribly Pre-Cataclysm anyway."*Self esteem is overrated*

Kitiara99
08/20/2002 7:42 PM

Before King Marderfarker could make his way over to the Princess, an exceptionally tall woman in metallic blue robes appeared in a flash of lightning. Her deep black hair shown with dark violet highlights, and her eyes gleamed a metallic sapphire color. *Newsflash! It's the blue dragon again! Dum, Dum, DUM!*

"I have returned." She spoke softly, yet her voice echoed throughout the ballroom. "Now, where was I when I was so rudely interrupted and called back to my lair?" She then muttered something unintelligable about hiring gully dwarves as look-outs and guards.

One of the dwarven ballerinas was happy to volunteer information. "Excuse me, Lady Silveraine. But you we're in the process of insulting her royal highness...." The dragon's human form gave the ballerina a scathing look, causing her to quake in fear.

"Ahh yes. I remember now. That Princess has very valuable information, and I intend to acquire it. You will come with me, my dear Airina!" With that, Silveraine summoned a minor imp to carry the Princess off. When the girl started to protest, the blue dragon managed to conjure up a weakened form of dragonfear that silenced all of the guests in the room. Then she strode out the door, with the imp carrying the princess not far behind her.

*Newsflash* Princess Airina has left the ballroom.*Self esteem is overrated*

then...

"AHHH! MAGNIFIQUE! You dance well!" He says to Chislev,"But not even YOU can hope to defeat my DISCO FEVER!" Suddenly, one of those disco light globes comes down from the ceiling and some funky 80's music plays. The captain snaps his fingers and is suddenly dressed in bellbottoms and wearing shades with rose coloured lenses. He begins to dance like John Travolta in Saturday Night Fever, pointing one finger at the ceiling and swiveling his hips.

"Yeah, come BOOGIE with me!"

His entire retinue gets in the act, GYRATING (hey, why not, it's a groovy word :)) wildly to the music.I told you 158 times I cannot stand little notes on my pillow. "We are out of cornflakes. F.U."

Ralgroth had been sitting in the corner quietly trying to enjoy a quit ale or 17, he had watched the entrance of the minotour woman with keen interest, he had seen the gods fighting over the harvest or something,

when the dragon came back and took the princess away, he thought that i was starting to get interesting, Then that bloody disco music started and that moron of a cpatian who had almost stabbed someone earlier, brought out this sparkly ball and began to girate in the middle of the dance floor.

"That is enough" the 7" minatour thought to himself he got up off his chair, camly walked onto the dance floor clonked captain Foulenough over the head with the back of his battle axe, which rendered him unconscious, with also stopped the music(thank the gods for that).

he was an impressive creature 7" tall Red Fur Grey Horns with black Streaks through them, he had twin battle axes holstered on his back.

now what is going to happen next he wondered"There is only Ten of them and 2 of us, It hardly seems fair, shall i kill myself"

The good captain's retinue deliberated over the situation a moment, then came to a decision. WindRiver, the barbarian poet unceremoniously dumped a bucketful of icy-cold water on the man's prone body.

"WHAT!!!" The captain spluttered as he came awake, his now wet moustache drooping in misery and his hair plastered limply to his face. "Imbecile!" He clonked WindRiver, who was the obvious culprit (since he was still holding the bucket). Then, he gingerly felt his head.

"Ooooh, my head hurts. Who hit me?"

Several fingers point at the minotaur.

"Churl!" The captain squeals in outrage as he stalks over to the minotaur, drawing his sword. "It is inconceivable that my sword will not render you the punishment you so richly deserve." It would have been far more threatening, if not for the fact that his boots squelched embarassingly with every step he took, and that he only came up to the minotaur's chest in height.

OOC: The Princess is supposed to be kidnapped, but she doesn't want to be, apparently, so she's ignoring my character's actions and telling me I don't know how to roleplay. *Snicker*

IC: Chislev was having the time of her godly life, dancing away with Sir Foulenough. That is, until he minotaur decided to interrupt them. Someone was shouting something about the Princess being kidnapped, and everything had gone silent for a bit. Chislev was a bit confused. Then again, things start to get blurry when you've had as much to drink as she had.....

All she knew was that the Princess was supposed to be gone. Yet there she was, waltzing away again... Suddenly a godly-sized lightbulb appeared about Chislev's head. "I've got it!" she shouts.

"Seize that girl over there! She's an imposter! The real princess was kidnapped a couple minutes ago!" Maybe the statement didn't have too much logic behind it, but hey, who needs logic when you're as drunk as a tavern full of dwarves?*Self esteem is overrated*

The imposter-princess got so angry at Chislev's accusation, it looked like she just might explode. Chislev was about to use some godly magic to turn her into a goblin when she noticed King Ai Mer Beech staring at her. Maybe I have better things to do than blow up little princesses.... she thought.

"Well, King Ai Mer Beech. Now that we've dispensed with the dancing, would you care to join me in going on a little "adventure"? This party is going absolutely nowhere."

Elsewhere...

Silveraine, still in elven form, walked through the forest. The imp carrying the Princess followed her, working hard to keep up with his heavy loud. Like so many other nobles, the Princess had discovered the trick of using illusion magic to make herself appear thinner than she actually was.

The Princess, however, wasn't the only one capable of using tricks and illusions. Silveraine had conjured up a replica of the Princess to use as a decoy. The replica was currenty in attendence at the Harvest Ball, dancing and flirting away. The duplication was so perfect that even the Princess herself didn't notice the difference.

Silveraine appeared confident and self assured. In reality, she had no clue as to what to do next. Her magical strength lay in illusions, she had no idea how to get the information she wanted out of the Princess. Especially when Airina's mind was still convinced she was at the ball.

It was a pure stroke of luck that caused her to notice a sign pasted to a nearby tree. It offered the services of a woman skilled in torture....Exactly what she needed! She cast a spell on the sign that would teleport the person who had posted it to this very spot.

OOC: This is DarkMistress's sign that she posted at the end of "The Great War." *Self esteem is overrated*

((OOC: ok..I'll join in but it all in the line of sick and twisted fun on my part Evil laugh on a side note..sorry Princess..I just can't resist.))

Valonna sits on her bed while she watches her young human guest on his knees worshipping her. Ahh this is more like it! He is not an elf but I'm lonely damn it! Smiling smuggly to herself she stands up and starts to walk over to the young man when all of a sudden...*FLASH*

Blinking her eyes she falls back onto the bed. A little angry and startled, "What in the name of darkness!?!" her vision starts to clear and she sees a strange looking elf, an imp, a tired up princess and her dead date in front of her.

Hearing an 'Oops' for the Elf, Valonna gets up. "Who are you & what in the name of the Abyss are you doing in my room?" Looking down at her date she turns back to the elf , "And to top it off! You Killed Kenny!!"

((OOC: Ok your move Kit!))

"Oops." Silveraine murmered. Then she turned to Valonna. "My deepest apologies. That spell was supposed to teleport you to me, not the other way around. I'm terribly sorry. Oh.... and sorry if I, umm, killed Kenny. He's only a human, I'm sure he's rather replaceable..." Silveraine looked rather sheepish for a dragon in avatar.

"Well, to get down to business, my name is Silveraine. I saw your poster, and I am in need of someone skilled is torture who is also capable of being discreet. You seemed to fit the bill, so to speak. You don't need to hear any more about me, if you agree to help me, I will tell you what you need to know about the Princess. You will, of course, be well paid."*Self esteem is overrated*

Valonna smiles at Silveraine. "I accept your apologies and you are correct about the human. He is very replaceable. I can worry about that later." Valonna dismisses the dead body as if it never matter.

Now her pale blue eyes sparkle with life, " Ahh but now about my true passion...torture. Please tell me what it is you wish me to do. Then we can talk payment." Valonna gesture to the small table with two chairs, "Please sit down and we shall get down to business." her smile widens.Darkness follows you, surrounding you then comsumes you.

Silveraine smiles graciously. It seems she has found just the right person for the job. "My story is a long one. I have traveled far and wide, and have uncovered many mysteries. There is one occurence, however, that I wish to investigate further. A matter of the gods, a disturbance if you will." She waves her hand dismissively.

"I have one question, however, I must have answered. I cannot be sure if this girl will even answer me, her mind seems terribly disturbed. However, I will require your services in order to ask her one simple question. You have my permission to do whatever it takes, like that young man, she is only a replaceable human. Once you have her coherent and willing to talk, give her to me, and I shall ask what needs to be asked."*Self esteem is overrated*

Valonna raises an eyebrow at being told she can do whatever she wants then her lip curl up on one side of her mouth after she hears the rest.

"Yes I think we try the herbs first less messy but alass less fun for me." she says with a slight laugh then clears her throat, "But if they do not loosen then girl tongue I will be glad to use my special tools on her. " Valonna leans forward with a serious look on her face, "I will promise you, one way or another, she will talk in the end." a hugh smiles creeps across Valonna face.

"As for price, I would think 50 steel would cover it, unless you think that is too steep. I assume you will want to go elsewhere, somewhere more secluded perhaps?" Valonna says has she raises and walks across the room to grather her things. She turns back to face Silveraine, "I do not believe this is the right place for my practices. I am ready to go when you are." Darkness follows you, surrounding you then comsumes you. I embrace that darkness becoming one with it. Now I am that darkness and I have come for your soul!

"Of course." Silveraine replied. "Whatever you think is best. As for finding a more suitable place, I know of an inn, far out in the Solamnic countryside. The have several secluded cabins, and the innkeeper doesn't ask many questions. It's well know as a place for high ranking knights to rendezvous with their mistress's, but it will suit our purposes just fine."

Silveraine cast another teleportation spell, this time with much greater success. Within half an hour they had settled in to a one roomed cabin set back into the woods. Airina lay on her back on a table, staring off into space. Silveraine suspected that her duplication spells was still working wonderfully, and Airina still had no idea that she'd left the ball.*Self esteem is overrated*

Ralgroth Smiled and picked up the sodden captain and placed him on a table so that they could discuss the matter eye to eye

The Minatour spoke quietly"and just how do you think that YOU could punish me seeing that you dont even know how to hold a sword let alone use one"

"Ooooh, my head hurts. Who hit me?"

Several fingers point at the minotaur.

"Churl!" The captain squeals in outrage as he stalks over to the minotaur, drawing his sword. "It is inconceivable that my sword will not render you the punishment you so richly deserve." It would have been far more threatening, if not for the fact that his boots squelched embarassingly with every step he took, and that he only came up to the minotaur's chest in height.


Ralogroth drew his other Battle axe (Which everyone notices are covered with magical runes), on one side stood a wet bedraggled man sort of holding a sword and on the other a 7" Minatour with battle axes in each hand"unless that is you would like to challenge me"As Ralgroth spoke he drew himself up to full height everyone could see the muscle rippling through his body"There is only Ten of them and 2 of us, It hardly seems fair, shall i kill myself"

"Infidel! How dare you insult me so! I am the BEST duelist to ever live!!!!" the good(?) captain roared in rage, hopping to his feet on the table, so that he is staring down at the minotaur. Unfortunately, he accidentally slams his head against one of the many chandelier's hanging from the ceiling, and melted candlewax drips into his hair and somehow catches fire.

"AAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAARGH!!" Captain Foulenough shrieks as he runs around the room with his head on fire, accidentally spreading the flames to several expensive looking, if rather tasteless, tapestries depicting the princess frolicking in some flower fields.

WindRiver the barbarian sighs and runs off to fetch another bucket of water (The rest of the captain's retinue have long since dispersed among the banquet tables and are happily helping themselves to the food).

Airiana ran over to Foulenough and helps him up after WindRivers put out the blaze. " Oh Foulenough, Speak i command you. Tell me if you are all right." she smiles as he looks up.I am the one the call the Princess. To you, I am your worst nightmare

The captain looks up as the princess(?)/imposter(?) helps him up.

He narrows his eyes.

"You look like the princess. You talk like the princess. But are you really the princess?"

Then he shrugs. "Does not matter. I thank you anyway. Now I seek revenge!" He charges towards the minotaur bellowing his terrible battlecry -"DIE DIE DIE DIE DIE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!"

And then trips on a crack in the floor and falls face forward, breaking his nose.

"MGHLMPH." He said, as he tried to get back up. Blood spurts from his nose in twin jets of crimson.I'm tired about all this nonsense about beauty being only skin-deep. That's deep ennough. What do you want -an adorable pancreas?

King Ai Mer Beech von Marderfarker XVI's attention shifted to the battle between the minotaur and the captain. Well, it wouldn't really be called a battle, considering the fact that the captain was, running around, getting himself killed while the minotaur was merely standing at one place, doing nothing."I am the LEGENDARY, MANLY MAGE, Eliar Swiftfire!

While Princess Airina was busy sobbing about her massive wedgie, a squadron of gnomes ran in and seized the kender. The one in front shouted, "My life quest! To catch the Mother of all Wedgies! It's been fufilled! Quick, ready the death ray gun, we'll finish her off yet!"

The gnomes aimed the death ray gun at the kender, who nimbly leaped out of the way. They shot it off in the right direction, but nothing happened for several minutes. Then, gnomes started exploding all over the place. PoP. POP. BOOM!!!!!!!! (That was an especially fat one.) Soon the room was up in flames, and all the inhabitants had exploded.
