Scrooge signed it. And Scrooge's name was good upon 'Change for anything he chose to put his hand to. Old Marley was as dead as a door-nail." ~ Charles Dickens

    Good to see some signs of life in the IC thread!

    I'm still here too, just doesn't seem to be anything particularly in character for Cam to do other than scowl.

    You can join Turthain in kicking orcs in the face. Always a fun pastime.

    For every one hundred men you send us, Ten should not even be here. Eighty are nothing but targets. Nine of them are real fighters; We are lucky to have them, they the battle make. Ah, but the one. One of them is a warrior. And he will bring the others back. - Heraclitus of Ephesus, 500 BC

    Hey, scowling makes a post! No sense in failing to share your scowls with the rest of the party. Could I be doing more to involve Cam directly?

    No no, Cam probably wouldn't have the most 'assertive' personality anyhow. He's very young, not terribly used to cities, or other people for that matter, and used to taking orders from a more senior ranger.

    Sorry for the delay there. Had a bit of a crisis at home that got me distracted for a few days there. Back now though.

    No worries. Real life comes first around here. And don't let Leif tell you different!

    I hope everything is okay now! Pay no attention to Rhun, he likes to talk out of orifices that are better suited to different bodily functions.
