Challenge #03426-I138: Strange Justice

The criminal begged for mercy, demanding a trial rather than what was facing them. The Pax Humanis member stood there, blade in hand, blood staining the clothing, giving the criminal the choice between the knife, or take their chances and jump from the cliff to the sea. -- Fighting Fit

Out in the Edge territories, things are a lot less formal than what one might expect. A small settling colony may take objection to a traveling shyster, but their decisions about meting out justice can be... interesting.

Coulter Pinion stood between the devil and the deep blue sea. Well. It was sort of purple, and the 'devil' was actually a hellishly frightening Human, but the predicament remained. Having been found guilty by mob rule, his choices were a quick death or a slim chance. With a huge serving of slow death on the side.

The townspeople fenced him in, watching. The executioner - surely a candidate for Pax Humanis - was sharpening a scimitar that was already gleaming. The sea, on the other hand, was at the opposite end of a cliff far too high for anyone to survive the dive. And even if they did, nobody had done a complete survey of the ocean's biodiversity. Besides, it was winter and the water was a kind of icy slurry. He'd freeze to death before anything tried to bite.

Wednesday, Wordpress & Date PLNs

I am very tired -_- So tired that I slept until the alarm this morning. The wet weather is getting to me and all I want to do today is Be Blob.

BUT we also need to purchase kitter foods, cream, and probably some other essentials [like our favourite flavour sauces] and that's going to take even more out of me.

I might propose a Grand Day In for date night this evening. Get some ridiculous face masks, order a platter

Challenge #03425-I137: Explosive War Prevention

Please tell me, father, why we keep going to war? It never works, and all that happens is we lose the ones we love most. -- Anon Guest

"That's the trick of it, my lad," said King Gerhardt. "They also lose the ones they love the most. Make them pay for killing ours, eh? Balance the scales a bit. We must remember the pain they caused us so that we can claim our vengeance."

Prince Ethelbert frowned at the concept as he

Tuesday, Patreon PLNs and New Slab Who Dis?

Miss Chaos had a smol shopping spree and a lovely dinner, last night. She got a game called Are You Dumber Than A Box of Rocks? and a Funko Pop that happened to amuse her. We also got her a Teppenyaki dinner and dessert at a place called Cowch.

If you love sugar, and I mean freaking LUHUV sugar, try getting your fill at Cowch. #NotSponsored.

They are an indulgence.

Today, I shall be posting lots of stuff in lots of tiers.

Challenge #03424-I136: Ferocious Friend

Captain Gorx and his crew find out that this pax humanis member is actually a kind individual, and a good friend, even during a fight, it shows. https://peakd.com/fiction/@internutter/challenge-03355-i067-diminished-concerns -- Lessons

It was the stare, more than anything else. Daiz had an unblinking way of viewing the world. A habit of standing just a fraction too close. An air of alertness not often seen outside of the wild. The closest domesticated analogy that Captain Gorx could reach was

Long Monday, New Map PLNs

I finished level 8 of 23 and have begun level 9. Yay.

Given that it's a map with actual right angles, I shall heartily enjoy making this one a virtual reality. So to speak.

I'll leave all the trickiest parts for last. Save what there is of my sanity for another day.

That's IF I feel like rising from my bed before the afternoon.

It's a day that I do not expect very much from myself. It's allowed. Thanks to wonky sleep

Sunday, Sleeplessness Sillies

Beloved and I went out anyway. Because Kitten D'amour was releasing new clothes.

Beloved has new business outfit. I have a new witchy outfit. LOL.

I also fell pretty fast asleep after that nonsense and THAT was why I was awake at fuckoff-AM unable to rest at all.

On the plus side, I did get a lot of a chapter written. On the minus side, it wasn't for the book I was trying to write for pro reasons.

Whoops.

I am going

Saturday, Crash'd PLNs

There was going to be an LGBTIPAQ+ social event today, but it was cancelled because flooding. "Yay".

To ameliorate the disappoint, we are having a grand day in. We shall make the luxury hot chocolate and have cupcakes and watch Our Flag Means Death together. Maybe have a spa bath sometime close to the evening.

Just a lazy day at home. Nothing planned. An enjoyable nothing, but nothing nonetheless.

IF we stir from the bedchamber, I might be building more of Level

Challenge #03421-I133: Sharing? Inconceivable!

Several CEO's, disgusted on how disastrous many of the Deregger worlds have become secretly get together to start changing their own empires, making a tidy profit while doing so. First stop? Dedicating a couple of worlds to preserve and protect endangered species, not for hunting, or as pets, but to help restore nature's beauty. -- Anon Guest

"But... why? It's a planet full of resources. We should be exploiting it. Especially the live ones." Saxon clearly wasn't getting the program.

Friday, Unfuckening PLNs

I'm going to have to swap my boots for wellies just to clean the catio. For my next trick, I shall make a chart of potentially random potions.

All because my crew of chaotic murder hobos planted their Rando Beans and now have a bunch of potion fruits. Because of course they do.

There's TONS of potions you could have.

I have to work out how to randomise them all.

Also in my PLNs is to work on more of level 8,

Challenge #03420-I132: Of Course it's Healthy

The world was dead, badly irradiated, it would be a long time for it to heal. The few survivors were in emergency hospital facilities, and the CEO's, now former CEO's, of this badly sickened world, were imprisoned, but also having to take treatment due to pretty severe radiation poisoning. -- Anon Guest

"You can't do this to me, I know my rights," CEO Martlebury Fauntleroy Jenkyns tried to struggle against the Mediks. "This so-called treatment is making me worse! Radiation sickness is

Thursday, Chambering and Shenanigans

Having company whilst building chambers in TaleSpire is way more productive for the building of said chambers. It's easier to do things with company.

This set of chambers is going to be waterlogged and I need to check and see if the Kobold will drown when the water is where the book says it will be.

It's my universe. I decide who drowns.

Ahem.

Yesterday, my love and I tried to reach a Fish and Chippery called Yabby Road. Alas, it was

Challenge #03419-I131: Passed With Flying Colours

"Don't bother the gods and they won't bother with you." She said. However, in back memory is one lost to both time and other things, is a time when she did see the inside of an old, run-down, temple as a little girl. She rescued what she thought was just an old person stuck in the rubble. They were deeply grateful for her kindness.

Wednesday, Wordpress and Date Night

We're having the second once-in-20-year rain event THIS YEAR and I'm having flashbacks to 2012 when we were having once-a-century rain events every other week.

MeMum's "looking forward" to a reflooding, but fingers crossed the measures she has in place now actually work to keep the water out of her house.

The rain may interfere with Date Night, which has previously involved visiting a fish and chippery called -get this- Yabbie Road.

If they don't have yabbies on their menu, I shall
