Sorry if I didn't make myself clear. First, understand that I live in the
canton of Vaud on the shore of lake Geneva. We speak french here & it is my
mother language.

My whole message came about because of one li'll typo of yours: the ruler of
Rhigos is called the "Demivierge", but you forgot the "i". (Check the RQ
Companion or go to Joerg's page if you want to make sure.) Now, this is pure
french, "vierge" means "virgin" (usually female) or "maiden" & "demi" means
"half". So that we get the "Half-a-Virgin" or "Half-a-Maiden" of Rhigos. Now
the question is, "how the lunar hell do you become one ?!!". Since first I
learned of the existence of the _Infamous_ Demivierge of Rhigos, I have kept
this question at the back of my mind. Maybe one day I would get the answer,
either from a published source or from the arkati-shaman-trickster himself ?

This never came to be, because I got the answer from you !!! Yes, Peter, you
gave me the answer I was looking for when you forgot to put this one small
but all-so-important letter...

Because, to repeat it, "la verge" is the penis, the cock. Thence the idea
(thank you again) of those half-cocked rhigan lucky bastards. The poor gal
remains half-virginal because of the inadequate tooling of her subjects,
what a pity !

>>Christoph: Now, Peter, I think you are on to something here, even if only
>>unwittingly ! I had always wondered - like most of you too I'm sure- how the
>>Demivierge of Rhigos managed to stay/become a half-virgin ?!? (Because, that
>>is what "demi-vierge" means after all... )

It sure does. She isn't called "infamous" for naught. She definitely is no
demiurge.

Aw, come on, only a tiny minority of esrolian males are eunuchs. Honest.
Don't believe everything those Heortlander perverts & debauched Caladarians
say !

Here you go again ! Be careful. It is D-e-m-i-v-i-e-r-g-e. ;)

Anyway, here among the Varndings, our godi always reminds us that the
Half-Cock -& a crooked one as such- holds court in Glamour, which seems
right to me. Gaudyr of the Gwandor used to say that Shepelkirt's wretch was
a real pussy, but you've got to give the Mooner-in-(mis)Chief his due: the
motherfucker does nonetheless bust some ass once in a while !!!

Yeah, maybe MOB knows what she is infamous for !?

All Hail the Reaching Storm !
