Hello Everyone! I’m new here and I was just stopping in the inn to introduce myself.
I came on the site to join Tann's Trilogy War Thread. I’m really looking forward to posting. This is my first posting type of role-play. I’ve done role-play before, and I am excited about trying out this new venture.
Just call me Vivi and I can’t wait to meet you all!
Oh a towel? I shall be sure not to be seen without it then.
"A towel, it says, is about the most massively useful thing an interstellar hitchhiker can have. Partly it has great practical value - you can wrap it around you for warmth as you bound across the cold moons of Jaglan Beta; you can lie on it on the brilliant marble-sanded beaches of Santraginus V, inhaling the heady sea vapours; you can sleep under it beneath the stars which shine so redly on the desert world of Kakrafoon; use it to sail a mini raft down the slow heavy river Moth; wet it for use in hand-to- hand-combat; wrap it round your head to ward off noxious fumes or to avoid the gaze of the Ravenous Bugblatter Beast of Traal (a mindboggingly stupid animal, it assumes that if you can't see it, it can't see you - daft as a bush, but very ravenous); you can wave your towel in emergencies as a distress signal, and of course dry yourself off with it if it still seems to be clean enough.
More importantly, a towel has immense psychological value. For some reason, if a strag (strag: non-hitch hiker) discovers that a hitch hiker has his towel with him, he will automatically assume that he is also in possession of a toothbrush, face flannel, soap, tin of biscuits, flask, compass, map, ball of string, gnat spray, wet weather gear, space suit etc., etc. Furthermore, the strag will then happily lend the hitch hiker any of these or a dozen other items that the hitch hiker might accidentally have "lost". What the strag will think is that any man who can hitch the length and breadth of the galaxy, rough it, slum it, struggle against terrible odds, win through, and still knows where his towel is is clearly a man to be reckoned with."

It is a little known fact, that I originated the custom of handing out welcome towels to the newbies. You'll know soon enough why you're going to want to keep one handy I'm sure. I have a wide selection here in a variety of colors, so take your pick, and enjoy the Inn, don't mind the madness!
Pop into the DragonChat where I act as current resident bar tender. We offer our very own "Good Old Froth-n-Slosh", the stale pale ale with the foam on the bottom.
Just grab a mug off the mantel and draw a cold frosty one.
My assistant Igor is usually lurking around if I'm not there.
He never says anything, must have something to with having his tongue cut out by his last boss, that nasty bar tender over at the Orc Bar & Grill.
Anyway the Posting Games are great place to get to know folks and of course the DragonChat is our favorite lounge.
So lurk or play, welcome to the Inn!
And Welcome to Trilogy.

Ayrn- -chuckles and bows- thank you, thank you, I do try ever so much!
Odyson- Fluffy towels are most excellent. I shall most certainly pop into DragonChat soon then, sounds very intriguing. As for Igor, I’m much more of a talker, than a listener anyway, so that works out excellently.
Sparky- Oh don’t you know it love, one of my better qualities.
Mischief- Thank you kindly Mischief and same to you. –She smirks as she grabs the empty purse that she had on her instead. She reaches into a concealed pocket and feels her treasure still safe-
