Blimey, I didn't expect the Loskalmi Inquisition...

NO, NO! Not the Comfy Chair! I Repent, I Repent!


[After several pokes with the dreaded Soft Cushion]:

Yes, yes, I see the Truth now....gasp...Loskalm is the best p-p-possible of all places to live! Long live the State!...wuurgh..

I see your point. It was just a bit too... heavy-handed for my taste. I couldn't present your version of the Hrestoli Idealist State to my players with a straight face, that's for sure. Nope, some tweakings are in order. Hmm, come to think of it, Cardinal Fang and his Comfy Chair isn't such a bad idea... :)

Nice try, but too little, too late - one huge, bushy beard coming up!

Cheers..[poke] - Oh, um, sorry - er - Hail Loskalm!
