At this point, Heyoka Jumps-Off-Mountains bounds down the stairs. "Who wants coffee? I want coffee. So I'm going to make coffee. I might put drugs in it... I mean spices. That's right. Who's up for some spiced coffee that might give you a lot energy or visions?"

"But are for being sued, yes?" Pætros pats Artichoke on the back. "Is no shame: Pætros has been sued many times. Process servers, worse than locusts. Crunch less when stepped on, at least."

He sighs wistfully. "Very good day, that was."

"Good to know," says Artichoke thoughtfully, before looking over at Heyoka. "Heyoka - meet Pætros! Pætros - Heyoka! You'll find," he adds quickly to the newcomer, "Heyoka very interested in the question of religion. Why don't you go talk to him over a cup of coffee about the divine Dog we have in town?"

Once away from the other two, Artichoke starts making plans for a visit to the Quadrille that night, wondering who - if anyone - he can afford to take along.

OOC: Scott, do you want to play out what happens at the Quadrille on the forums or at your place? Since I have no internet at home, I'll be a little slower than usual on the forums, but should be able to check them daily.

"Lawyers," grumbles Lizzy. "Worse than priests those guys." Lizzy turns to Artichoke "So we're getting sued eh? Who do I kill, Chokey?"

Well, that takes care of keeping it quiet! Barely keeping from rolling his eyes, Artichoke says calmly, "Nobody's suing us. In fact, we may have a client. I've been asked to meet him in the Quadrille tonight. It's just a meeting," he continues, with little hope, "So anyone who has better things to do doesn't need to come along."

"Not ... exactly accurate," Artichoke adds. "And the letter isn't from L. It's most likely from Lord Bum, the so-called "King of Beggars". He lives - supposedly - in a flophouse in the Stagger. And is rumored to know the street and the underworld very well. He could be a useful person to have beholden to us."

"Pætros likes your attitude. You will be deacon."

Pætros blinks. " 'Pig fondler'?" He shakes his head. "Suggest watching words; excommunication process will be very painful. Pætros can be very creative. Fate of 'L' fellow good start...."

"Sorry, friend," says Odanais with a broad smile. "Perhaps that word doesn't have quite the same implication as it did in the universe where I'm from. Do your priests here not sing ecstatic hymns about fondling the divinity of their gods?"

"Beggars don't need a king. They need to seize the means of production and run the bastard kings out of town on a rail. He should die." Lizzy spits. "When do we start the National Beggars Liberation Front (NaBeLF)?"

Heyoka Jumps-Off-Mountains returns from the kitchen. "Coffee's on. It's very... strong. I had to make up for the actual coffee part being shit." He sniff the air for a moment, then pounces to Artichoke's side.

"Not like this stuff." Heyoka looks down at the letter. Instead of reaching for it, he brings his face to it, practically diving onto the table. Which gives Captain no time to step away. The Shifter gets a snout-full of the letter while Artichoke gets a snout-full of Shifter.

"Syphillume Dark Roast, from the Snake States. Good stuff. And expensive". He sniffs again, "There's other stuff too. I bet it's to make it smell nicer. But nothing smells nicer than coffee, except maybe hashish."

OOC: We'll start on Friday at the gallery. Let's play-by-post until that point.

Picking up Lizzie's fervor, if not the exact meaning of his words, Heyoka adds "Damn right! When do we start fighting?"

Quote :
"When do we start the National Beggars Liberation Front (NaBeLF)?"
At this, Heyoka frowns. "We're starting another group? We have a lot already. This is confusing".

Artichoke lifts an eyebrow and then says, "Any time you want, Lizzy. Just try to do it without attempting to kill Lord Bum. Or at least not before we find out what this is about, okay?"

Quote :

Artichoke, having had experience of Heyoka (and Heyoka-after-Dog, and pig gods, and various such flavorful experiences) earlier, promptly stops breathing till Heyoka backs up, an act signified by Captain's face and bald pate gradually reddening.

Quote :
"Syphillume Dark Roast, from the Snake States. Good stuff. And expensive". He sniffs again, "There's other stuff too. I bet it's to make it smell nicer. But nothing smells nicer than coffee, except maybe hashish."

"Really?" asks Artichoke, the question a little breathless as he resumes breathing. "I wouldn't expect that from Lord Bum, but then again, I don't personally know the man." He looks around. "Just to be on the safe side, let's be on the lookout for trouble, shall we?" Realizing what the statement may mean to this group, he hastily adds, "But we won't start anything unless someone else does, okay? Okay?"

Sounds good. BTW, nice use of Heyoka. It helps to have a few extra (N)PCs around.

"Critics can be very vicious," Pætros replies, shaking his head. "But if not artists, probably safe." He pauses, considering. "Any icons of Pig-God? If not, should remedy. Blood excellent medium; very religious."

He turns to Heyoka. "You, Furry-man! How are veins?"

"I'll listen to what he has to say Chokey. But he's on my list. " Lizzy takes out a list and writes a big 'L' on it. "And don't you worry about trouble. From each according to his ability to each according to his need, I always say."

Heyoka takes a long swig of 'coffee' from the tin cup he carries and says 'I think they're on fire. Which feels kind of strange." He flexes some of his considerable and inhumanly-hinged musculature. "Would you like to wrestle me for my blood?"

"Feh. Pætros above such things. Wrestle angel, maybe? Write it up for gospels, even."

A bitter sigh emanates from nowhere in particular; the luminiferous æther perhaps?

Pætros rolls his eyes. "Angels such whiners. Holy books generally omit this."

Very Happy

Heyoka thinks for a moment, "You're on! But no flaming swords. Also, my people believe if you can wrestle an angel to the ground it has to be your drug mule for a while. Is this true? Can we make it be true?"

"Suppose so, but only Pætros can call it forth. Still, can call it, stuff drugs into it, send it back to celestial realms. Call it again later, in different place, remove drugs."

"Fuck you," opines the air. "That's not what I contract for, and I'll have no part in it."

Pætros shrugs. "Suggest not losing, then."

"Is the angel here yet? I hear him, but I can't see him. And I didn't know angels said fuck. You learn something new every day."

Heyoka stops scanning the room and turns his gaze to Pætros. "Can't I just wrestle you? You're also covered in holy fire. I can see that. I wonder if it'll burn? Please?!". The large, eager, and somewhat incoherent warrior cracks his knuckles. It's not a pleasant sound.

OOC: Aside from possibly placing bets on a certain angel-Shifter wrestling match, is there anything else your characters are doing today? And who, pray tell, is going to meeting at the art gallery?

Artichoke will go out and see what he can learn about the art gallery, as well as anything he might pick up about the beggar who delivered the message.

Simple. One PC for each player who'll be present on Friday, so Christabel, Odanais, Lizzy, Pætros and Artichoke.
