Re: 1879: The Expendables - McFly's Journal

Back in the dining room, I was served lamb, which did not have any eyes when it arrived on my plate. This was at least an improvement over the last course. The folks around me began discussing religion and magic, two subjects I am deeply familiar with but thought it was better not to discuss. Howeve...

Re: 1879: The Expendables - McFly's Journal

An opportunity to remove myself from the table arose when a mysterious figure dropped a napkin at my plate. Fortuitously, it had a message on it asking me to head toward the library. I explained to Rachel that the fish had disagreed with me, mostly about the current policies around pork subsidies, a...

Re: 1879: The Expendables - McFly's Journal

After being herded into a drawing room, I hugged the wall next to the door as it was the best position to be antisocial and escape in case of a talking emergency. However Lord Charles, who is apparently a very important person, addressed me directly. He asked about the brandy in my hand, which was t...

Re: 1879: The Expendables - McFly's Journal

Spell lady has been haunting The Danger Zone this past week as she works on something chemistry related. I had a bad experience with chemistry once, so I have a healthy distrust of flasks. Naturally, I told her she could utilize as many glass vessels as she could scrounge from my scrap pile. It was ...

Re: 1879: The Expendables - McFly's Journal

Professor Tyrell has invited me to an event put on by an aristocrat of some note, although his name eludes me since I never asked. She insists that such gatherings could be useful to someone like myself, as they are attended by people with money. As it so happens, money is something I wish to acquir...

Re: 1879: The Expendables - McFly's Journal

The ensuing week would be spent setting up my new workshop, The Danger Zone, and failing to learn the names of my staff. I convinced them to take on “code names” for “security reasons”, so I could address them formally. Goose, Maverick and Iceman are going to be far easier for me to understand than ...

Re: 1879: The Expendables - McFly's Journal

Finally, we were back in London. It was a wonderful sight, in no small part to the complete lack of predatory monsters. Spell lady and photo hunter decided to try finding Lord Hastings at the restaurant he frequents. I, for one, thought that was a terrible idea and the odds of him being there were n...

Re: 1879: The Expendables - McFly's Journal

Finally, we could make the long, arduous trek back to London, by way of Carapace and My Hammy. I began work on another armor project, this time for the spell lady, who insisted I make the smallest piece of clothing known to mankind. I suggested a tasteful pair of leather bracers, made to be as fashi...

Re: 1879: The Expendables - McFly's Journal

A few more doors were still closed. While the hunter was strong-willed to open everything, the rest of the crew felt less excited. I, for one, was getting tired of almost dying horribly in a hidden temple. However, I was inclined to try one more door, as long as it was the nicest one. If nothing goo...

Re: 1879: The Expendables - McFly's Journal

As the spell lady smashed Morning Wood down on the last arocknid, it became aroused and attacked. Of course, it decided to attack me. As it lunged on top of me, I dropped to the floor and fell unconscious. Passing out on the floor seems to be a common occurrence on this trip. I awoke to find Morning...
