Topic: Hey, I'm new here
Subject: WooHooo!!! I get to be first...


...and no one even had the chance to warn you!



No offense intended, of course.... I do that to everybody. Now that my slobbery exuberance is out of the way, let me seriously welcome you to the Inn and assure you that you'll most likely not be out of place here... our Innmates are about as diverse and accepting as you'll find anywhere and more than helpful with just about anything. I loves 'em all.

Aaaaaand, as far as how the freeforms work... what specifically did you want to know? How to start a new one? How to join one already in progress? How to recruit players to join?

Just let me know and I (or any one of our other overly-enthusiastic staff or Innmates will be glad to try and point you in the right direction.

Subject: Suck is in the eye of the sucker... or something like that.


I don't think there's a writer in the world that can't remember having written "an epic tale" when they were young... and, of course, thought it was the most-awesome-super-boss-freaktastic-tale-ever!!! Then you let other people read it and those other people pick it apart and make you second guess yourself, and then you re-read your most-awesome-super-boss-freaktastic-tale(and possibly edit it some)... The you let other people read it some more and those other people pick it apart some more and you go "Well, crap! Maybe this just SUCKS!"

Nah... dude, you were 12! The fact that you wrote 900 pages at that age says something, at the very least. Anyway, even if, in retrospect, you look back and think "Yeah... the story did kind of suck;" the thing to remember is that even in the suckiest of sucky stories there's a little golden nugget of imagination and inspiration that can be taken from the whole sucky mess and made into something spectacular later on, yeah?

I can't tell you how many sucky stories I've written and discarded over the years, Dracons, but I can tell you that, every now and again, I still go back and pull bits and pieces from each and every one of those crap-piles, weave them into a new tale or somesuch, and find that it wasn't exactly so sucky after all.

As long as what you write makes you happy and gives you a sense of accomplishment and fulfillment, dude, who gives a flyin'-frig-at-a-rolling-donut-on-a-gravel-driveway what anyone else thinks of it?

Did someone say something about Grugg needing lasagne? Is this coffee decaf? Where are my pants?

Topic: Continuing Where We Last Left Off
Subject: Tiiiime is on my side... or maybe not... it's lyrical anyway. ;)


Caicher played and sang and watched and listened as the Heroes of Freegate, rather gloomily, he thought, found their respective ways to seat and shadow. Not great fans of music, it would seem, he mused, eyeing the troupe and making assessments of their demeanors as individuals and a group, Curious, that. Most of their ilk tend to enjoy a song or two… perhaps when the subject is of a more familiar sort, hm?

The bard grinned as the once and former Red swept passed him with scarcely a glance, and grinned even brighter when Valentine, in that supercilious way of his, flipped a coin into the flagon of ale at Caicher’s feet. At least some minor appreciation for a tune well-played, then, the troubadour chuckled inwardly as he touched his fiddle-bow to the brim of his hat in appreciation and resumed playing without having missed a note, there’s a bit more of the vivacity I might have expected from such a lot.

"Hail and well met, gentlemen," the knight’s voice drew Flynn’s attentions away from the mage, then, "I am Arien Aston Thedell the Third, and these are my companions. We come on a mission from Dwan of the Iron League, and we would seek your council."

Relg Fistele, as it was his station to do, returned Sir Thedell’s greeting and made his introductions. “We are honoured to have such well spoken of warriors in our humble town,” the elder smiled at Arien and his company, “Dwan Granitecrusher sent you on a mission? What is that mission, for your arrival is fortuitous as we were just about to ask Caicher Flynn here, about a mission of our own.”

Flynn’s tune reached its end in a strange harmony with Relg’s salutation and its last notes dissipated in the air of the hall as the knight began to recount the particulars of the mission with which the Lord of the Iron League had tasked them. Like the elders, Flynn’s expression went a bit quizzical at the details Sir Thedell related – he hadn’t been a resident of Helvorn for long, himself, but long enough to know that no cattle had gone missing any time in recent memory and certainly not any of the fine people that called this town home – and he, too, exchanged perplexed glances with the elders.

“Missing cattle? And persons? Well if that were true I would be very glad to see you all here but truth be known, it is not. We haven’t sent a messenger to Dwan yet, in fact, that was going to be one of the suggestions I was going to make.” Relg said with a mystified tone before continuing on to explain the nature of the mission the Town Council truly had in mind.

“Since you are here and charged to our well being by Dwan,” Fistele concluded, “perhaps you would be willing to go to the temple for us? I know that Flynn here would probably welcome the chance to join you in this…what do you people call it? This quest?”

Caicher nodded, the bewildered expression replaced again by an amicable smile. He took a moment to set his battered fiddle aside (with more care than the instrument appeared to have ever received) and retrieve his cup before regarding the company again. It had been his intention to offer his own input after a quick swallow of the ale but, upon having slaked the dryness of tongue brought on by singing, the bard had scarcely opened his mouth when the young thief interjected…

“Hang on there, Fistele,” Dapple spoke up from her corner. She spoke without heat or rancor, but firmly. “Dwan paid us to check into your situation, and we’ve done so. The fact that you’re ok and all don’t mean we’re charged with anything more than turning around and kicking some messenger’s arse for getting his messages wrong. Arien will hem and haw and try to be noble about it, but if you want us to visit some priests in the back end of beyond, it’s on your tab. And we don’t take sightseers.”

“Sightseers?” Caicher couldn’t help but laugh, then. “I’ve been called gypsy, tramp, fop, point-ear, and worse,” he chortled, “but never can I recall be labeled sightseer, lad. Interesting choice of words, I think.” He laughed again and followed it with another draught from his flagon; this drink bringing the silver coin tossed into the vessels contents by Valentine to the bard’s lips. He caught the coin between his teeth as the mug left his lips and, after swallowing the mouthful of warming brew, released the silver and let it fall into his palm. “I’m sure you’ll find me to be much more than a simple tagalong balladeer, Dapple Moon,” he smiled, giving the coin a cursory appraisal before relegating it to his own purse, “I’m as handy with my blade as I am with my fiddle, I can assure you…”

"It is clear to me that Heironneus has guided our path so that we would meet with you," Sir Thedell made his own reply to Fistele’s proposal, then; "Truly, it seems that it would be wise to check with the priests, but your dire news makes me fear the worst. Unless one of my comrades objects, I say that we make for the temple directly to investigate what may have happened there. Hopefully, this knowledge will aid us in our larger mission.

What say you, good Flynn? Will you accompany us?"

Flynn’s smile remained affixed to his lips and shone, too, in his emerald eyes as he directed his gaze from the scowling thief to the more exuberant knight. “Twould be my distinct pleasure, m’lord,” he beamed, at last removing his hat as he sketched a bow, “and a true honor to adventure with the renowned Heroes of Freegate… mayhaps I’ll even be able to add a tale or a tune of my own to add to your legends, hmm?”

Subject: What goes around...


“Tell you what,” Wyatt drawled easily enough. “I’ll pay fifty credits. Consider it a handlin’ fee. You release Bowman, an’ we’ll shed dirt singin’ the praises o’ a fair and good lawman here on Beylix who can see further than the end o’ his nose. ‘Course, you’ll be kind enough t’ release my ship right away as well, cause you know that’s what’s good n’ proper. This here ‘Verse is filled with enough Big Bad Men…don’t need no Law joinin’ their ranks.”

To Sam, this whole situation wasn’t as much about what was right and fair as it was about being stuck dirt-side on Beylix with little more than a snowball’s chance in hell of getting back on the move and a staying a step ahead of them as had been dogging his steps through the Verse these past few years… didn’t help much that the last place that them hounds got close was this same ruttin’ rock, neither… Th’ go suh always tends ta go from bad ta worse with a quickness on Beylix, Sam mused despite his best efforts not to, I dunno why in nine kinds o’ hell I keep findin’ myself here. His eyes darted around the room, flicking from face to face and trigger finger to trigger finger. He felt the hairs on the nape of his neck prickle and one hand moved to calm the sensation as the other tentatively found its way to the grips of the pistol at his hip…

“50!” the sheriff says with a disgusted tone, “Tell you what, since I really don’t want to hold Luke here back from his destiny, I’ll let bail go for $250.”

…Regardless of the dryness that the pilot’s mouth had recently acquired, Sam couldn’t keep himself from spitting on the floor just then, and the fingers that he’d clamped around the back of his neck didn’t seem to be doing much in the way of keeping those hairs from getting all up in a tizzy, neither...

“Not sure I’m going anywhere Sheriff.” Pearson said just then, stepping away from the Frisco reps.

“What!” The sheriff exclaims loudly, “what’s the problem?”

Ta ma duh,” Sam muttered under his breath, fingers flexing on the butt of his pistol and eyes ticking towards the door. It had seemed to Sam that, for whatever reason, the Sheriff was a might anxious to see Pearson off, and, now that it didn’t look as if such an occurrence was bound to transpire, the pilot just knew that the Sheriff would be taking out his pent up frustrations on them and Rocinante, “Wuo cao…”

“We are all agreed on the terms of payment with Mr. Pearson” Shem drawled regretfully, “But we didn’t consider that part of the deal.”

“Well let me cover that then Luke, as a thanks for everything you’ve done gift!” the sheriff said, “How much would it be for …” He started to say and then, turning his head, looked at Wyatt. “Oh…bother.”

Dash’s heretofore tight-lipped and anxious scowl melted into the beginnings of a smug grin as he realized the turn that things had taken. “Well, ain’t that a bitch,” he snickered, the hand at the back of his neck coming around to rub at a stubbled cheek. His gaze ticked from the Sheriff to Wyatt; “It’s about ruttin’ time our luck swung the other way, Cap…”

((There, gorramit! I finally finished... off to take care of the other game, now...))
