Re: New RP Discussion Thread

Aww, c'mon, mi Iohanne!! "Revivify", as if it could die over a short weekend! It's my turn, and I will post soon; and, as I'll be introducing some of Marius' tenants, it's going to take some doing...I don't think I should just slap something up there. Give me a few, OK? >`({|8-...

Livestock Transport

If he has a truck, he doesn't need a horse, nonne? (Unless it's a truck hauling horses.) >({|;-) I have a graphic novel about a centaur who joins the army. Against all but military logic, he's assigned to an infantry unit. Why not the cavalry, his new commander asks? The response from HQ...
