    Default RP Log: Barrelhead Bazaar, 6/5/2016

    Part One:

    [2016/06/04 11:05] Irk (shannonwilsonbell) wanders closer to the trader's camp. He nods at Apo getting ready to blow the horn and makes his way to the fire.
    [2016/06/04 11:07] Barrelhead Bazaar Horn: shouts: a long and loud blast of sound!
    [2016/06/04 11:07] Irk (shannonwilsonbell) nods, "The human scrit, it is strange to me. But the blind trader likes them...
    [2016/06/04 11:07] Irk (shannonwilsonbell) nods to Apo as she approaches.
    [2016/06/04 11:08] Malice (malice.shepherd) nodded. 'E kept givin' em ta meh...'
    [2016/06/04 11:08] Aposiopesis Fullstop nods to irk, then squints at the back of the head of the person sitting in the chair. She sniffs the air - and wrinkles her nose.
    [2016/06/04 11:08] Mutant Witch of the Wastes (ccindy.pfeffer) creeps trough the sand. has a slightly noticeable limping left over it seems
    [2016/06/04 11:09] Aposiopesis Fullstop gives the Witch a little wave.
    [2016/06/04 11:09] Malice (malice.shepherd) stands and turns out the sounds of approaching people, and grins through his rotten face. 'Sir prize.'
    [2016/06/04 11:09] Irk (shannonwilsonbell) grins a toothy grin at the Witch, Hello sister."
    [2016/06/04 11:10] Mutant Witch of the Wastes (ccindy.pfeffer) makes a face at the smell and shivers a moment bevor she lays her hand on irks shoulder "me brother" and steps past him to sit
    [2016/06/04 11:10] Aposiopesis Fullstop shakes her head and laughs. "Well, fuck me sidewise! If it ain't Malice again! Shoulda known better than t' think you went to rot..."
    [2016/06/04 11:11] Malice (malice.shepherd) nodded and pointed towards the north. 'Went dat way this time, same shit. Nuthin' but sand 'n crazeh folks tryna shoot meh fer no damn reason. 'Stop the damned thing' dey scream, but ain't none o' it matter cuz all I did was kill 'em fer tryna kill me!'
    [2016/06/04 11:12] R-Ex: Scrap Bench (with anim): Click the seat to call the control menu.
    [2016/06/04 11:12] Aposiopesis Fullstop chuckles and claps him on the shoulder as she passes on her way to the bench, and instinctively wipes her hand off on her pants as she sits.
    [2016/06/04 11:12] Mutant Witch of the Wastes (ccindy.pfeffer) stretches out her legs and shifts to find a more comfortable position. listens half interrested whats going on
    [2016/06/04 11:12] Malice (malice.shepherd) sits and makes himself comfortable.
    [2016/06/04 11:12] Irk (shannonwilsonbell) leans into the Witch and whispers, "Have you hurt the leg?"
    [2016/06/04 11:14] Mutant Witch of the Wastes (ccindy.pfeffer) hesitates and answers in a whispering hiss "yous be there and see it"
    [2016/06/04 11:14] Aposiopesis Fullstop: "Thass the way of it. You coulda been worse off. Think them skags who kidnapped Slade was from up north, too. Wouldn't mind if you picked some more of them off." She snorts.
    [2016/06/04 11:14] Irk (shannonwilsonbell) nods quietly and says no more, scanning the sky for buzzards.
    [2016/06/04 11:15] Malice (malice.shepherd) blinked a few times, then exclaimed. 'WELL FUCK ME, I FERGOT SLADE EXISTED... Oh shit, I didn' e'en think bout dat... Hopefulleh.'
    [2016/06/04 11:15] Aposiopesis Fullstop laughs weakly. "E'en Slade forgot Slade existed, after that..."
    [2016/06/04 11:16] Malice (malice.shepherd) furrows his brow. 'Mah brain's still goin'... Wonder 'ow long I kin old on... Speakin' o' food, WHAT THE HELL HAVE YEH BEEN FEEDIN THA DAMNED BUZZARDS!?'
    [2016/06/04 11:17] Aposiopesis Fullstop chews on her lower lip, considering. "...Us.?"
    [2016/06/04 11:17] Arcturus Soothsayer blends in to survive!
    [2016/06/04 11:18] Malice (malice.shepherd) frowned a bit deeper. 'Well, stop it.'
    [2016/06/04 11:19] Irk (shannonwilsonbell) pats his back sack, "I have much to trade if anyone is looking for something."
    [2016/06/04 11:19] Mutant Witch of the Wastes (ccindy.pfeffer) empties a small bag of scrapwood and some plastic near the fireplace and folds the bag
    [2016/06/04 11:20] Malice (malice.shepherd) looked at him and shrugged. 'I'd love ta, but I reckon yeh aint wantin' another weapon er no scrits... Damned Alden tryna offload on me I thinks.'
    [2016/06/04 11:21] Irk (shannonwilsonbell) shrugs, "Scrit will do. I do not understand how you hoomans believe in the value of rounded wood bits, but I will accept them."
    [2016/06/04 11:21] Malice (malice.shepherd) glared and lowered his voice, speaking in an almost growl. 'Oo yeh callin' 'uman, greenie?'
    [2016/06/04 11:22] Mutant Witch of the Wastes (ccindy.pfeffer): "thee value so strange things .. like the black rock. it be with uses but not that value"
    [2016/06/04 11:22] Irk (shannonwilsonbell) looks to the sand, ashamed, "Forgiveness. I use this as a general name. Clearly you are... otherwise."
    [2016/06/04 11:23] Malice (malice.shepherd) snorted and nodded, but relaxed visibly. 'Aight, we good. Jes' remember Ima ghoul 'n proud.'
    [2016/06/04 11:24] Mutant Witch of the Wastes (ccindy.pfeffer): "there be no much be proude of cheating big cycle" she shakes her head with a frown
    [2016/06/04 11:24] Irk (shannonwilsonbell) looks again to the sky, a slightly befuddled grin on his face from the proud ghoul.
    [2016/06/04 11:25] Malice (malice.shepherd) took a few seconds, then remembered what they had been discussing and pulled out a decent sized sack of what seemed to be coins. 'Right.'
    [2016/06/04 11:29] Irk (shannonwilsonbell): "What do you seek in trade?"
    [2016/06/04 11:29] Mutant Witch of the Wastes (ccindy.pfeffer) shoves some of the scrapwood into the fire
    [2016/06/04 11:29] Aposiopesis Fullstop stares at the fire, her eyes unfocused. Suddenly, she shakes her head and blinks. "Bluh. Spaced out a mite."
    [2016/06/04 11:30] Malice (malice.shepherd) smiled and pulled a five scrit coin from the bag, flipping it. 'I need ammo. Slugs, arrows, mehbeh a few parts ta me 'em, but I need lots o' ammo.'
    [2016/06/04 11:30] Irk (shannonwilsonbell) nods and starts to fish around in his bag.
    [2016/06/04 11:31] Malice (malice.shepherd) flipped the coin one last time, almost dropped it six times, then immediately placed it back inside the bag with the other coins.
    [2016/06/04 11:32] Irk (shannonwilsonbell) makes a clucking noise and pulls something from the bag, "All I have right now is nails ammo. will this be good for you? I have three of them..."
    [2016/06/04 11:32] Aposiopesis Fullstop glances over her shoulder. "Ammo's a good thing t' have, of late..."
    [2016/06/04 11:32] Irk (shannonwilsonbell): "I also have coal."
    [2016/06/04 11:33] Mutant Witch of the Wastes (ccindy.pfeffer) wispers to her brother "that be hard trade if it keep forget what it does"
    [2016/06/04 11:34] Malice (malice.shepherd)'s smile broadened at Apo's remark. 'Why so? I'm jes preparin' fer tha future...' He turned to Irk and nodded. 'Aye, I'll take 'em, now ta business. What yeh want fer 'em?'
    [2016/06/04 11:35] Irk (shannonwilsonbell) ponders... showing a hand of five fingers, flashing it three times. He sets the 3 ammos on the bench next to him.
    [2016/06/04 11:36] Malice (malice.shepherd) nodded and began counting coins slowly, restarting a couple of times as he did so.
    Whatever shit Wastelanders do, however dirty or bloody or batshit random it is, it comes right from our gritty, fucked up little hearts, and that's beautiful.

    Part Two:

    [2016/06/04 11:36] Aposiopesis Fullstop gives Malice a worried glance. "You heard 'bout the Thing yet?"
    [2016/06/04 11:36] Irk (shannonwilsonbell): /watches him count and digs his toes in the sand.
    [2016/06/04 11:37] Malice (malice.shepherd) looked up at Apo. 'What thing? There are many things. Sand'ippo's, Tin Man when 'e goes nuts, Botans...'
    [2016/06/04 11:38] Irk (shannonwilsonbell): whispers: "The thing in the dunes..."
    [2016/06/04 11:38] Malice (malice.shepherd) moves to hand Irk the coins
    [2016/06/04 11:38] Mutant Witch of the Wastes (ccindy.pfeffer) grins with lots of pointy teeth overlapping 2 hands so all fingers point outward and makes crawling motions with the fingers
    [2016/06/04 11:38] Irk (shannonwilsonbell) accepts the bag with a grin and stuffs it into his bag, hands over the ammo and nods at the ghoul.
    [2016/06/04 11:39] Aposiopesis Fullstop nods to Irk. "Is a damned horrible thing. Huge. Green. Legs allwheres. Fangs..."
    [2016/06/04 11:39] Irk (shannonwilsonbell): whispers: "So many legs..."
    [2016/06/04 11:39] Aposiopesis Fullstop: "But it don' just hunt. It waits in the soft sands. It sets traps..."
    [2016/06/04 11:40] Malice (malice.shepherd) suddenly got excited and nodded. 'AYE, I SEENT IT! It almost pulled meh apart right when I got back, got the poor bastards dat woke it up. IT WAS GLORIOUS!' he exclaimed, cackling maniacally.
    [2016/06/04 11:41] Irk (shannonwilsonbell): "It is a monster, to be hunted down and killed. It has no glory, trapping without honor."
    [2016/06/04 11:41] Aposiopesis Fullstop gives another weary laugh. "'Tis a wonder, in its own fuckawful way..."
    [2016/06/04 11:42] Malice (malice.shepherd) looked at Irk and shook his head. 'It be a killer. It kills 'owe'er it can. It be a wertheh adverse air ee.'
    [2016/06/04 11:42] Irk (shannonwilsonbell) cocks his head at the strange HUMAN word, but says nothing.
    [2016/06/04 11:43] Aposiopesis Fullstop: "Is hard to fell, an' no doubt. But... aye, it puts up a hell of a fight. Better'n some peoples I known."
    [2016/06/04 11:43] Mutant Witch of the Wastes (ccindy.pfeffer): it hide under sand .. that be it coward nature .. sadly it be coward but strong
    [2016/06/04 11:44] Malice (malice.shepherd) listened and nodded. 'Glad I ran like a lil girleh den', he chuckled.
    [2016/06/04 11:45] Irk (shannonwilsonbell) motions to the Witch, "Yes sister, no honor in its way. And it lives below the ground... where demons dwell and the King of Fire is hidden away."
    [2016/06/04 11:45] Aposiopesis Fullstop: "So ye ran toward it, ye mean? Cuz thass what this girlie has done, them times the call went out..."
    [2016/06/04 11:45] Mutant Witch of the Wastes (ccindy.pfeffer) wispers to her brother "and it smell like ghoul and rot"
    [2016/06/04 11:45] Irk (shannonwilsonbell) snorts
    [2016/06/04 11:46] Malice (malice.shepherd) shook his head. 'No, ma'am. I went tha other way, no thank yeh. I didn' 'ave me a weapon yet, just got back, 'member? But, I fixt that. So now, things be differen'.'
    [2016/06/04 11:46] Mutant Witch of the Wastes (ccindy.pfeffer) trows a few scraps of plastic into the fire to boost the flames a little
    [2016/06/04 11:46] Malice (malice.shepherd) was hard of hearing in his old age, and missed the comment.
    [2016/06/04 11:47] Irk (shannonwilsonbell) breathes deep as the plastic fumes rise from the fire, smiling.
    [2016/06/04 11:48] Malice (malice.shepherd) stared at the two mutants, and shook his head, mumbling under his breath. 'Weirdos.'
    [2016/06/04 11:49] Irk (shannonwilsonbell) glares at the ghoul a moment, then snorts again and watches the sky.
    [2016/06/04 11:49] Mutant Witch of the Wastes (ccindy.pfeffer) stares at the ghoul for a brief moment
    [2016/06/04 11:49] Aposiopesis Fullstop nods. "We got a bit of a... well, not 'zactly a clan, goin'. More an... arrangement. Anyone finds one o' them sticky crates out there in the dunes, they call out, an' anyone who can will come runnin' to help kill the gorram leggity bastidge. If'n ye want in..."
    [2016/06/04 11:50] Irk (shannonwilsonbell) thumps his chest, "I stand ready for the call."
    [2016/06/04 11:50] Malice (malice.shepherd) nodded excitedly. 'Yer gawdamn right I wants in. But speakin' o' nasties dat kill things... Where the 'ell'd the ghouls go?'

    Part Three:

    [2016/06/04 11:50] Aposiopesis Fullstop smiles appreciatively at the Mutant.
    [2016/06/04 11:51] Aposiopesis Fullstop: "Oh, there's still a rare few, lurkin'. Lunesta. Terrenn. But if ye mean the ol' BM..."
    [2016/06/04 11:52] Malice (malice.shepherd) nodded. 'I think we's the last three... Least dat I've seen... I 'ope dey didn' all go feral.'
    [2016/06/04 11:52] Irk (shannonwilsonbell): I have seen a ghoul with a broken neck in the Rot. Sometimes."
    [2016/06/04 11:52] Aposiopesis Fullstop: "Some of them was near Ghast from the start," she grumbles, and spits into the fire.
    [2016/06/04 11:53] Malice (malice.shepherd) nodded and frowned, thinking deeply. For a ghoul, that is. 'Dey all dun died... Well I'll be damned. '
    [2016/06/04 11:53] Aposiopesis Fullstop: "I do wonder, atimes, whether some of them just went down deep in them Junkyard sewers, an' may come up yet. But I think they finally just turnt on each other."
    [2016/06/04 11:53] Irk (shannonwilsonbell) squints as he thinks, "There was the ghoul doctor that was here... in the big tent... what was this one's name...?"
    [2016/06/04 11:54] Aposiopesis Fullstop: "E'en Pirate held his lands fer a fair long while, but weren't seen. We ain't had to suffer his smell nor sight in spans."
    [2016/06/04 11:54] Malice (malice.shepherd) looked at Apo and frowned with an almost sad expression on his face. 'Smokey... I dun been in tha sewers, dey all collapsed. No life...'
    [2016/06/04 11:54] Aposiopesis Fullstop: "Oh! ...Ohhh. Aye. Doktor Pileus..."
    [2016/06/04 11:54] Irk (shannonwilsonbell) nods
    [2016/06/04 11:54] Malice (malice.shepherd) suddenly perked up. 'Who?'
    [2016/06/04 11:54] Mutant Witch of the Wastes (ccindy.pfeffer): "there be no life there from begin"
    [2016/06/04 11:55] Aposiopesis Fullstop shifts uncomfortably on the bench. "Oog. I ain't mind Ghouls, but this guy's a weird one, e'en to me..."
    [2016/06/04 11:55] Malice (malice.shepherd) snarled at the witch. 'I LIVE BEYOND DEATH, MUTIE.'
    [2016/06/04 11:55] Aposiopesis Fullstop: "..Aye, thass just the sort o' thing he's got a fondness o' sayin'..."
    [2016/06/04 11:56] Mutant Witch of the Wastes (ccindy.pfeffer) shakes her head "yous just keep spirit that better be reborn"
    [2016/06/04 11:56] Irk (shannonwilsonbell): "The Doktor wanted others to become ghouls. He was passing out mushrooms and... it was strange to me."
    [2016/06/04 11:56] Malice (malice.shepherd) nodded to Apo. 'We ghouls, we dun' die. I remember back in tha day we used ta do things... I gotta meet dis dokter.'
    [2016/06/04 11:56] Aposiopesis Fullstop: "Basically, that guy's reckoning is that Ghoulism is some sort o' blessin', an' it lets folk... how's he put it... transcend mundane perceptions, or sommin'? Feller's fulla more poncetalk than e'en I am when I get to writin'..."
    [2016/06/04 11:57] Irk (shannonwilsonbell) nods in agreement with Apo, "He is not right in his head."
    [2016/06/04 11:57] Malice (malice.shepherd)'s eyes widened. 'Holeh shit. I dunno what a perception be, but dat's wut dey told meh when I turned, dat we's blessed after death.
    [2016/06/04 11:57] Aposiopesis Fullstop: "Aye! He's got a whole thing w' mushrooms! 'Cause o' the Ghoulism fungus, aye, but is like he's big into ANY mushrooms. 'Specially them purps..."
    [2016/06/04 11:57] Irk (shannonwilsonbell) looks to the Witch and rolls his eye.
    [2016/06/04 11:58] Malice (malice.shepherd) nodded. 'Good shrooms, dey be our family iffen yeh thinks o' it.'
    [2016/06/04 11:58] Irk (shannonwilsonbell): whispers: "delicious cousins... "
    [2016/06/04 11:58] Aposiopesis Fullstop: "Y'know, I reckon ye just missed 'em. I think ye come back just shortly after they left..."
    [2016/06/04 11:59] Malice (malice.shepherd) began to laugh and moved his shirt's shoulder, allowing mushrooms to spring from beneath it. 'Dis 'ere's Cuzin Remus.'
    [2016/06/04 11:59] Irk (shannonwilsonbell) gags a little, like when you get a cyst in your grub.
    [2016/06/04 12:00] Aposiopesis Fullstop winces.
    [2016/06/04 12:01] Aposiopesis Fullstop: "Iono. When I hear they're comin' to town, I hole up - same as with the Gathering, no 'fense meant," she says, raising a protective hand against the Witch.
    [2016/06/04 12:01] Malice (malice.shepherd) nodded. 'Too bad dey gone... I woulda liked that guy it sounds like.'
    [2016/06/04 12:02] Mutant Witch of the Wastes (ccindy.pfeffer) she grins mean and leans forward "yous know yous always welcome for feast"
    [2016/06/04 12:02] Irk (shannonwilsonbell) grins slyly.
    [2016/06/04 12:03] Aposiopesis Fullstop: "That is prezactly why I take my pallid Human butt an' hang out in the celler for a couple-odd days. That ain't cowardice, is just damn sense."
    [2016/06/04 12:04] Mutant Witch of the Wastes (ccindy.pfeffer): "it be coward"
    [2016/06/04 12:04] Irk (shannonwilsonbell) nods
    [2016/06/04 12:06] Aposiopesis Fullstop: "I ain't gonna go stickin' my hand into the fire, neither, nor restin' my butt on a box fulla bee. Not gonna try an' scratch no Sand Hippo 'hind its ear. ...Okay, save Sheila. But ye get what I mean - some things ain't brave, they're just godsbedamned dumb."
    [2016/06/04 12:07] Irk (shannonwilsonbell) shrugs and looks to the sky again.
    [2016/06/04 12:07] Aposiopesis Fullstop reaches into a pouch and rummages around, eventually extracting some sticky and half-melted candy.
    [2016/06/04 12:08] Mutant Witch of the Wastes (ccindy.pfeffer): "that be why yous be invited to feast and not be inviting others"
    [2016/06/04 12:09] Aposiopesis Fullstop unwraps the sickly-colored Sweetmud Bogwater Taffy and bites into it, strands dangling down to her chin.
    [2016/06/04 12:10] Mutant Witch of the Wastes (ccindy.pfeffer) licks her lips watching that
    [2016/06/04 12:11] Irk (shannonwilsonbell) notices the Witch watching Apo eat candy and fishes in his bag again, withdrawing some taffy that he offers to her with a toothy grin.
    [2016/06/04 12:11] Aposiopesis Fullstop snorts, and mumbles between chews, "Mmf. Mutie bizness... ain't my concern. You got all yer own... cultural whatnot. Cain't go intrudin' on... folkways."
    [2016/06/04 12:13] Mutant Witch of the Wastes (ccindy.pfeffer) looks at her brothers sweets and smiles "no. me has, me just has at rustin buzzard"
    [2016/06/04 12:13] Irk (shannonwilsonbell) nods and tucks the taffy away again.
    [2016/06/04 12:14] Aposiopesis Fullstop: "Seems there useta be more Mutants 'round, too, though. Bic. Barry. Weren't Malsain one?"
    [2016/06/04 12:15] Aposiopesis Fullstop: "...She musta been, din't she have them..." She waggles two fingers at her forehead, like antennae.
    [2016/06/04 12:15] Irk (shannonwilsonbell): "I know only of Toroga"
    [2016/06/04 12:16] Mutant Witch of the Wastes (ccindy.pfeffer) raises an eyebrow "some of these be wandering beyond this sands for many moondances. some may never return"
    [2016/06/04 12:16] Mutant Witch of the Wastes (ccindy.pfeffer) smirks a moment "funny yous remember these names. me can never remember names of all theses smoothmeats i see all day"
    [2016/06/04 12:16] Malice (malice.shepherd) snaps out of his trance and snorts. 'It's the bromites.'
    [2016/06/04 12:16] Aposiopesis Fullstop nods. "Aye, Togora... Ain't seen her in a good while..."
    [2016/06/04 12:18] Aposiopesis Fullstop scoffs. "Ain't nobody seen a Brominite since... since before we last saw the Black Market. They ain't come to fuck up our Masheens in spans on spans - so why would they go pickin' off the Ghouls and Mutants?"
    [2016/06/04 12:19] Malice (malice.shepherd) narrowed his eyes. "What if they be walkin' ta places dey shouldn' be walkin, ya know what I mean?'
    [2016/06/04 12:20] Aposiopesis Fullstop: "I ain't ne'er understood them metal horrors, but the way I had it reckoned, they was all peeved at our usin' them Masheens, an' wanted to steal 'em back. They'd be well happy to see folk fuck off into the Nothing, rather'n stay here defendin' things."
    [2016/06/04 12:21] Malice (malice.shepherd) shrugged, but his face remained unconvinced. 'Mehbeh so, but I dun trust dem masheens no matter dey size. Iffen it thinks, it can go crazeh.'
    [2016/06/04 12:22] Aposiopesis Fullstop rubs the back of her neck. "Aye, don' think I forgotten. If'n them Brominites DO come back, we're well fucked, 'cause ain't none seen the Tin Man fer spans, neither. ...Save to come 'round an' vaporize the occasional arsenugget."
    [2016/06/04 12:23] Malice (malice.shepherd) nodded. 'I almost preferred 'avin' ta try ta kill it...Dis shit is gittin' scareh. No sign o 'uthin'... Not e'en a real traveler.'
    [2016/06/04 12:25] Aposiopesis Fullstop: "He's gon' come back, I'm sure of it," she says, the look in her eyes suggesting otherwise. "Would ye believe I still got that sack o' scrap we all gathered up, shortly after he done a runner?"
    [2016/06/04 12:25] Malice (malice.shepherd) nodded. 'Aye, dat seems like a vereh Apo thing ta do.'
    [2016/06/04 12:26] Aposiopesis Fullstop chuckles. "Shite's so old now that e'en the Masheens won't take it. But..."
    Whatever shit Wastelanders do, however dirty or bloody or batshit random it is, it comes right from our gritty, fucked up little hearts, and that's beautiful.

    Part Four:

    [2016/06/04 12:27] Malice (malice.shepherd) abruptly stood, pulled his waist band forward, and stuck his entire arm down his shorts, moving around, as if trying to pull something out. 'Speakin' o shit that 'as no use yeh can't let go...'
    [2016/06/04 12:27] Aposiopesis Fullstop covers her eyes and turns away. "GODS HELP ME, DON' YOU PULL OUT ANOTHER MUSHROOM."
    [2016/06/04 12:28] Irk (shannonwilsonbell) eyes the ghoul suspiciously
    [2016/06/04 12:28] Malice (malice.shepherd) pulled it out, holding it proudly. 'This thing...'
    [2016/06/04 12:29] Mutant Witch of the Wastes (ccindy.pfeffer): "me need be at other place." glares at apo "doing witch stuff" she explains with a mean grin "good hunt brother" as she stands up from the bench
    [2016/06/04 12:30] Irk (shannonwilsonbell) nods, "Safe journey, sister."
    [2016/06/04 12:30] Mutant Witch of the Wastes (ccindy.pfeffer) walkes into the sands
    [2016/06/04 12:35] Irk (shannonwilsonbell) looks at the odd thing Malice pulled from his trousers, "What is it?"
    [2016/06/04 12:35] Malice (malice.shepherd) turned to Irk and held it out for him to see. 'It be the weapon o' a Botan. I dunno 'ow ta use it, but it's REAL sharp. Make yeh bleed befer yeh know yeh bin cut!'
    [2016/06/04 12:36] Irk (shannonwilsonbell) regards the weapon and nods, "It looks dangerous."
    [2016/06/04 12:36] Malice (malice.shepherd) nodded. 'Aye, it took us ferever ta figure out 'ow ta kill one. Turns out, yeh just jump it wit' a flayer.'
    [2016/06/04 12:37] Irk (shannonwilsonbell): "Good strategy."
    [2016/06/04 12:38] Malice (malice.shepherd) nodded. 'Aye, I was tha first ta do it, I thinks... Mehbeh not, but pretteh sure I was. Any'ow, this botan kept killin folks n shit... So one day, I walked up in tha swamp dat dried up, and I seent it sittin there in tha water! So I was all,' and he suddenly lets out a blood curdling warcry.
    [2016/06/04 12:40] Aposiopesis Fullstop whistles low. "I done forgot ye had a Claw..."
    [2016/06/04 12:40] Irk (shannonwilsonbell) sniffs the air and looks around for the source of the manimal smell...
    [2016/06/04 12:40] Malice (malice.shepherd) looked at Apo and grinned. 'Good thing I can't use it, right?'
    [2016/06/04 12:42] Aposiopesis Fullstop snorts and nods. "Fer certain. Though I do wonder if it's a thing can be made, we just ain't figgered it out yet."
    [2016/06/04 12:42] Malice (malice.shepherd) frowned and nodded. 'Aye, I been thinkin' on dat too... Surely there's sommat there we ain't figured. A game changer. Dey always think they fount it all, but dey never do...'
    [2016/06/04 12:44] Aposiopesis Fullstop nods. "I'm such a shite Masheener, though - there's things I know CAN be made that I still ain't sussed out, e'en after all this time."
    [2016/06/04 12:45] Malice (malice.shepherd) nodded and sighed, putting The Claw slowly back into his pants before sitting. 'Aye, I can't think fer shit... Same problem.'
    [2016/06/04 12:45] Irk (shannonwilsonbell): "I shun the Masheens. The spirits of metal are tricksters and love to tease."
    [2016/06/04 12:46] Malice (malice.shepherd) blinked twice at Irk, then pointed at his weapon. 'Best git used ta ne'er goin further 'n dat.'
    [2016/06/04 12:46] Aposiopesis Fullstop gives a faint smile, looking past Irk to the old Firecracker Cola poster beyond him. "Wonder what ol' Jubal would say, t' know he an a Mutant got kinship in that feeling..." The smile fades. "Though I think he got more distress o'er Ghouls now, really..."
    [2016/06/04 12:46] Irk (shannonwilsonbell) pats his weapon, "It is enough."
    [2016/06/04 12:47] Malice (malice.shepherd) turned back to Apo after acknowledging Irk's reply. 'Aye, three out o', what, a few dozen?? Sommat ain't right..'
    Whatever shit Wastelanders do, however dirty or bloody or batshit random it is, it comes right from our gritty, fucked up little hearts, and that's beautiful.

    Part Five:

    [2016/06/04 12:51] Aposiopesis Fullstop scratches her head. "Three... wha huh?"
    [2016/06/04 12:51] Malice (malice.shepherd): THree o' us ghouls left. Dat's all. We used ta 'ave an army... '
    [2016/06/04 12:52] Aposiopesis Fullstop: "Three that's seen, an'way. An... whass that racket?"
    [2016/06/04 12:53] Aposiopesis Fullstop blinks. "Well, I'll be damned. I ain't e'en noticed that fox."
    [2016/06/04 12:53] Irk (shannonwilsonbell): "The animal howls at crates. He is very lucky."
    [2016/06/04 12:53] Aposiopesis Fullstop nods to Drifter.
    [2016/06/04 12:53] Wasteland Drifter (wastelanddrifter) looks at Aposiopesis and does a little bow.
    [2016/06/04 12:53] Malice (malice.shepherd) stands slowly, stretching and yawning.
    [2016/06/04 12:53] Irk (shannonwilsonbell) also nods at the manimal.
    [2016/06/04 12:56] Malice (malice.shepherd) walks to look up and see the manimal, and a large non manimal. He blinked a few times, shrugged, and went back to his seat.
    [2016/06/04 12:58] Irk (shannonwilsonbell): "Manimals I see much of. A rat man, foxens, other things with tails I do not know, they all crawl these sands."
    [2016/06/04 13:00] Malice (malice.shepherd) nodded slowly. 'Sands be shiftin fer sher... Looks like we might be pushed out ta naught after all.'
    [2016/06/04 13:01] Irk (shannonwilsonbell) sighs and nods, "It is a cruel world."
    [2016/06/04 13:02] R-Ex: Scrap Bench (with anim): Click the seat to call the control menu.
    [2016/06/04 13:02] Malice (malice.shepherd) nodded again, then began to grin. 'But so am I, muteh friend. If we ghouls gun' die out, we gun' leave a reminder scratched inta tha rocks like a message.'
    [2016/06/04 13:02] Aposiopesis Fullstop settles back into her seat.
    [2016/06/04 13:02] Irk (shannonwilsonbell): "Mutants survive, just not many here."
    [2016/06/04 13:03] Malice (malice.shepherd): Mehbeh I should start recruitin...
    [2016/06/04 13:04] Aposiopesis Fullstop nods slowly. "I think some Ghouls is just afeared to show their faces. Like, there's some folk who look on them Marketeers an' think, 'Aye, thass Ghoulism, thass how it always goes,' an' they're set to slaughter any sorry rot-risen thing they see."
    [2016/06/04 13:05] Aposiopesis Fullstop: "E'en now, well.. the mark they left has lasted."
    [2016/06/04 13:05] Malice (malice.shepherd) smiled and nodded, his spirits rising. 'AYE, AND THOSE BE THE PRIME CANDIDATES!'
    [2016/06/04 13:05] Aposiopesis Fullstop slaps her head. "Augh, I'm forgettin' everythin'! The ol' Ghoulcat's still 'round!"
    [2016/06/04 13:05] Irk (shannonwilsonbell) bristles at the thought of a ghoul manimal.
    [2016/06/04 13:06] Malice (malice.shepherd) nodded. 'I keep seein' signs o 'er, but missin' 'er...'
    [2016/06/04 13:07] Aposiopesis Fullstop nods. "She's tricksy. Keeps odd hours, atimes."
    [2016/06/04 13:07] Malice (malice.shepherd) nodded, thinking for a moment. 'Mehbeh I need ta set a cat trap....'
    [2016/06/04 13:09] Irk (shannonwilsonbell) pulls a fistful of bacon from his bag and noms on it.
    [2016/06/04 13:10] Aposiopesis Fullstop grins. "Leave a li'l trail o' soft fresh organs, leadin' into yer shack."
    [2016/06/04 13:11] Irk (shannonwilsonbell): whispers: "That might attract a lot of things..."
    [2016/06/04 13:11] Malice (malice.shepherd) thought for a moment, then nodded. 'Aye, I need ta relocate the shack... Again....'
    [2016/06/04 13:12] Aposiopesis Fullstop nods. "Been so long I cain't e'en remember where ye lived last..."
    [2016/06/04 13:13] Malice (malice.shepherd) ponted to the East and North a bit. 'By tha volcano, years ago...'
    [2016/06/04 13:14] Aposiopesis Fullstop nods. "There ain't nothin' free there now, don' think. A certain clan got a good stranglehold on most o' the lands west o' the crater..." She grins at Irk.
    [2016/06/04 13:15] Malice (malice.shepherd) looked up and shrugged. 'Eh. I wanna reclaim tha Yard anyhow.
    [2016/06/04 13:15] Irk (shannonwilsonbell) nods and grins back, "Yes, and there is built an amazing ... device... that counts days with shadows."
    [2016/06/04 13:16] Irk (shannonwilsonbell): whispers: "I think that's how it works..."
    [2016/06/04 13:17] Aposiopesis Fullstop scratches her head. "Iono 'bout shadows. I thought the Witch just moved a rock 'round from stone to stone."
    [2016/06/04 13:17] Irk (shannonwilsonbell) shrugs, rubbing his head, "It was a guess. It is all mysterious and I have not asked her how it works."
    [2016/06/04 13:18] Aposiopesis Fullstop nods. "I think is still... a sore spot. Like her other sore spots."
    [2016/06/04 13:18] Irk (shannonwilsonbell) snorts
    [2016/06/04 13:19] Irk (shannonwilsonbell): "After last time here I am glad she can walk at all."
    [2016/06/04 13:19] Malice (malice.shepherd): Speakin o' sore spots, I thought I lost my boots earlier... I was so damned mad! but den I fount 'em. Dey were on mah feet.
    [2016/06/04 13:20] Irk (shannonwilsonbell) does not get the joke and stares at Malice's feet.
    [2016/06/04 13:20] Aposiopesis Fullstop closes her eyes. "Oh lordy lou, not again w' the boots... So much o' yer brainmeat fizzles out, but not the bit thass focused on the boots..."
    [2016/06/04 13:20] Malice (malice.shepherd): 'Do yeh REMEMBER what mah feet look like, Apo? Do I need ta remind you?'
    [2016/06/04 13:21] Irk (shannonwilsonbell) tries to mask his horror...
    [2016/06/04 13:22] Aposiopesis Fullstop: "YOU MOST CERTAINLY DO NOT. I entirely endorse your boot frenzy. Keep them on. Keep twelve of them on!"
    [2016/06/04 13:22] Malice (malice.shepherd): I ain'ts gots toes no mer. Dey dun growed tagether. I needs 'em.'
    [2016/06/04 13:22] Irk (shannonwilsonbell) nods enthusiastically, "Yes, please."
    [2016/06/04 13:25] Aposiopesis Fullstop shivers. "I'm sure Doktor Pileus don' talk about that as an after-effect..."
    [2016/06/04 13:26] Irk (shannonwilsonbell) looks down at his six giant toes and shivers a little.
    [2016/06/04 13:26] Malice (malice.shepherd) nodded. 'Tha fungus consumes all in the end.'
    [2016/06/04 13:28] Aposiopesis Fullstop sighs. "Ye sound a bit like ol' Han when ye say that."
    [2016/06/04 13:28] Malice (malice.shepherd) blinked a few times and arched a brow. 'Sound like a who?'
    [2016/06/04 13:29] Aposiopesis Fullstop: "Hannibal. Mister Mercy. Reaver. Their ol' Reaver God was all about the end o' things, everythin' bein' consumed an' dead an' lost."
    [2016/06/04 13:30] Malice (malice.shepherd): 'Oh, that guy... Remember dat one time 'e tried ta come back 'n we kilt 'im again? Dat was fuckin' funneh,' he said as he began to laugh uncontrollably.
    [2016/06/04 13:31] Aposiopesis Fullstop: "Cain't keep him down fer long! Though I hear that least one o' his minions is come 'round again..."
    [2016/06/04 13:32] Malice (malice.shepherd) nodded and patted the pocket with the nails in it. 'Dat's aight. I'm readeh ta show 'em 'o tha top ghoul be.'
    [2016/06/04 13:33] Aposiopesis Fullstop shakes her head. "What I hear, this one ain't e'en a Ghoul... Iono, gives me the jeebs, it does."
    [2016/06/04 13:34] Aposiopesis Fullstop: "AN' the heebs. Simultaneous heebs an' jeebs."
    [2016/06/04 13:34] Wasteland Drifter (wastelanddrifter) sniffs around.
    [2016/06/04 13:35] Aposiopesis Fullstop watches the Manimal. "You a'ight? Yer well quiet."
    [2016/06/04 13:35] Wasteland Drifter (wastelanddrifter) looks over at the gathering.
    [2016/06/04 13:35] Malice (malice.shepherd) looked over at the manimal, and calls out in as friendly a manner as possible. 'Ey, manimal, yeh e'er though bout near immertality?'
    [2016/06/04 13:36] Irk (shannonwilsonbell) looks to the manimal but says nothing.
    [2016/06/04 13:36] Wasteland Drifter (wastelanddrifter) cocks his head.
    [2016/06/04 13:36] Aposiopesis Fullstop scratches her head. "What're ye goin' on about? Ain't like Ghouls don' die."
    [2016/06/04 13:37] Malice (malice.shepherd) nodded. 'Aye, we die, but not as easeh, yeh gotta outlast us.'
    [2016/06/04 13:39] Aposiopesis Fullstop nods. "Thass a point. Ye just gotta sew stuff back on. Ain't much but fire that can do ye in for good an' all, before the fungus is done w' ye..."
    [2016/06/04 13:39] Irk (shannonwilsonbell) blinks, a little sickened.
    [2016/06/04 13:40] Wasteland Drifter (wastelanddrifter) sniffs at the spices.
    [2016/06/04 13:40] Wasteland Drifter (wastelanddrifter) sneezes.
    [2016/06/04 13:40] Malice (malice.shepherd) smiled and nodded. 'I member when I were a fleshie, always almos' dyin' 'n such. LOOK AT MEH NOW. I'ma ghoul dat keeps on chuggin
    [2016/06/04 13:41] Irk (shannonwilsonbell): "I would rather live than walk when dead."
    [2016/06/04 13:43] Aposiopesis Fullstop grins. "I'm glad of it, e'en if ye come back ever more cracked every time..."
    [2016/06/04 13:44] Wasteland Drifter (wastelanddrifter) pants in the heat.
    [2016/06/04 13:45] Aposiopesis Fullstop glances up at the sky. "Speakin' on time..."
    [2016/06/04 13:46] Malice (malice.shepherd) sighed and pulled out a new mask, which he promptly placed upon his face, concealing it near completely.
    [2016/06/04 13:46] Irk (shannonwilsonbell) stands and nods to each of you. "Fair winds to you all, I must run away."
    [2016/06/04 13:46] Aposiopesis Fullstop looks it over appraisingly. "Ooh, thass a nice one. Like the teeths on it."
    [2016/06/04 13:47] Aposiopesis Fullstop nods to Irk. "I gotta head back to The N, meself. Be seein' ye! "
    [2016/06/04 13:47] Malice (malice.shepherd) stands. 'Be safe. '
    [2016/06/04 13:47] Aposiopesis Fullstop: "An', Malice - until ye get yer new digs an' all, yer welcome to stay at The N as long as ye like."
    [2016/06/04 13:48] Wasteland Drifter (wastelanddrifter) watches Irk leave.
    [2016/06/04 13:48] Aposiopesis Fullstop: "Just... try an' not eat too many o' the newfolk, yeh?"
    Whatever shit Wastelanders do, however dirty or bloody or batshit random it is, it comes right from our gritty, fucked up little hearts, and that's beautiful.
