Part 1 of 2: The art of barter

wizo_pounamu {enters}
rajak: so Dontella, by chance i can steal your man?
rajak: i trade you two camels for em
wizo_pounamu shivers a little as she steps in, pausing to shake and wipe mud off her bare feet.
dontella: By chance.. Perhaps.. If his mind were to go soft
rajak: they're really good camels
guardian_darrius: Rajak> Give me four camels and I will arrange that
rajak looks to Darrius and ponders
rajak : sure enough!
rajak : but you drive a hard bargain..
guardian_darrius smiles sweetly at Dontella
dontella : Hardly.. he's my dear man, and neither of ye can have him.
rajak : four camels can feed a whole kingdom
rajak looks to Dontella and mimics Darrius's smile
wizo_pounamu blinks at the chatter
wizo_pounamu . o O ( Kah-mel? )
dontella : I'll trade ye though..
rajak : oh?
guardian_darrius : Rajak> A kingdom of rats maybe
dontella : I'll take the camels, and ye can have..
dontella ponders a moment.
dontella : Thanriyon.
rajak eyes narrow for a moment
rajak : i gladly give you a kingdom of camels for that one
wizo_pounamu looks at those bartering camels curiously
dontella : I'd gladly be rid of him.. he keeps telling people I married him..
rajak : hmm...congratzs
rajak : but i imagine Nevine would be jealous? does he know?
rajak : when did the marriage take place?
dontella : It didn't!
rajak : sure...wheres' the ring?
wizo_pounamu carries her book on Juxta over to the bar and promptly starts looking through the index...
rajak grins slightly
dontella : There isn't one!
dontella hmphs.
rajak : he was cheap then?
dontella : Just send the camels over promptly?
guardian_darrius : Rajak> That or the ring is hidden
rajak looks to Darrius "probably"
wizo_pounamu . o O ( Kah... Ka... Kay-Ay-Em... )
rajak grins at Dontella "as milady wish"
dontella giggles
dontella : I'll give them to Nevine for Yule?
rajak chuckles
wizo_pounamu . o O ( No... no is in here..,. )
dontella : He'll hate it.. or love it..
guardian_darrius snickers at Dontella "He will eat them all by himself"
rajak : with a spork
dontella : .. Eat them?!
wizo_pounamu sighs softly in disappointment, then looks at the group again
dontella : Ye don't eat camels?
wizo_pounamu leaves her book on the counter, wandering over
guardian_darrius : Sure you do
rajak : you eat them before they eat you
guardian_darrius : They are little stringy every now and then
rajak nods sagely
guardian_darrius {action: rajak} agrees with rajak whole-heartedly.
dontella : They spit.. they don't bite?
guardian_darrius : They must all love you
guardian_darrius : Probably think she wouldn't taste good, being all skin and bones like that
rajak : they spit, because they show their spite for us
wizo_pounamu : Ahh, Lady Dontella?
rajak nods to Darrius
rajak : most likely
dontella waves to Pou
dontella : Hello..
wizo_pounamu smiles hesitantly
rajak : not enough fat on her
wizo_pounamu : What is kah-mel?

wizo_pounamu : What is kah-mel?
dontella muses..
rajak looks to Poun with a grin slightly
guardian_darrius : Where does she think the humps come from?
guardian_darrius tsks Donny
dontella : Yes.. Darrius, tell Pounamu about.. camels.
rajak : a creature that has two humps and a spit
rajak : or spits most of the time
wizo_pounamu : Spit? Cooking stick?
guardian_darrius : Pou> Second most used mount, though why no one knows, primarly in the deseret
guardian_darrius : No SP-It, as in saliva pushed out of the mouth
dontella : No no.. spit.. like..
dontella : Yes.. just so.
rajak : Dontella will demonstrate
rajak : on Darrius
dontella : She will?
guardian_darrius : Yes Dontella Demostrate on Rajak
dontella : Spitting's not nice..
wizo_pounamu looks confused, then raises a brow
rajak : not into that kind of kink
guardian_darrius : But he says its ok
rajak : i rather be stepped on
dontella : I can do that.
rajak looks to Dontella "your place, when the moon is full"
guardian_darrius : Oooo Demostrate that!
rajak : be there or be square
dontella : Ye don't know where I live..
wizo_pounamu scratches her head as the conversation shifts
dontella : Okies.. so..
dontella finishes her wine, and nods.
dontella : Spitting..
dontella spits in the now empty wineglass.
guardian_darrius : Yes that is Spitting
rajak looks to Darrius "i bet she going to drink it now"
dontella : Ew
rajak : how so lady like..
guardian_darrius : Camels are also carnivores as they live in the deseret and having nothing else to eat
guardian_darrius nods sagely
guardian_darrius : Why do you think more travelers die in the deseret than on the plains
rajak : yes...they eat the flesh off any victims they come across
dontella : Do ye have a picture of one Darrius?
guardian_darrius : A camel? No
rajak looks to Poun
rajak : think of a large horse with an ugly snout
guardian_darrius : And two humps
rajak : and a scorpion tail
wizo_pounamu : Ummm... real sick cow?
wizo_pounamu . o O ( No. Cows no eat folk... )
rajak : nah, they eat cows
guardian_darrius : Rajak> And don't forget the pincers they hide in their humps
rajak : oh, quite right..
rajak : all the better to surprise folk...
guardian_darrius : Oh oh, and the new ones fly by powers of the mind
wizo_pounamu : So.. is thing like horse what... spit... with scored pen tail and lumps?
guardian_darrius : Humps
wizo_pounamu gives Darrius a funny look
guardian_darrius draws two humps on the table
guardian_darrius : Humps
wizo_pounamu : No sulk, I no have seen thing!
guardian_darrius : Few have and lived to tell the tale
guardian_darrius grins at Rajak
rajak mirrors Darrius's grin
dontella : They lie.
rajak : aye...nasty beast...worse then fiends
dontella : It's rather like a big hairy horse.. with humps.
rajak : and a scorpion tail
dontella : That likes to spit.
dontella : .. There is nay such thing!
rajak : poison, the spit is also poisonous
guardian_darrius : Its spit starts to disolve its prey
wizo_pounamu : Lumpy horse with scored pen tail. WHat spit.
dontella : Oh that's ye..
dontella pulls a book out.. of somewhere.
guardian_darrius snatches for the book
dontella eeks and holds it away from him.
rajak sees Dontella pull the book from her corset?
dontella probably..
guardian_darrius Kinky
guardian_darrius but still moves for the book
dontella tosses the book to Pou, since Dar's moving in.
dontella : Camel.. C.. A.. M.. E.. L..
wizo_pounamu catches the book in surprise
dontella : Ye can read it..
wizo_pounamu nods and starts looking... knows how to use an index ^ ^
guardian_darrius turns and goes for the book "Most people don't realize how deadly camels are"
dontella intercepts Darrius..
wizo_pounamu : See-Ay-Em... hey!
wizo_pounamu dodges away from Darrius
rajak excuses himself and goes to the privy...
wizo_pounamu : Well, no will know if you stop for find!
guardian_darrius : Fine fine
wizo_pounamu : ...Em... Eeee... El. Camel.
dontella poks Darrius
wizo_pounamu flicks to the page... and holds the book open on a picture of the "lumpy horse"
wizo_pounamu : Huh? That no much look like to horse...
guardian_darrius : Ulfs at donny's poking
dontella and then pokes him.
guardian_darrius Then ulfs at her poking
dontella : No scorpion tail either.
guardian_darrius {action: dontella} pokes dontella in the chest.
dontella eeps..
guardian_darrius : They are masters of illusion and deciet Camels are
wizo_pounamu : I no knowed what a scored pen tail is.
dontella : .. Camels!
wizo_pounamu : They live at... beach?
dontella : .. deserts?
guardian_darrius : They live in the Desert, where there is lots of sand from the bones of their previous victims
guardian_darrius nods sagely
wizo_pounamu brushes her fingertips over the sand dunes behind the camel in the picture
dontella : Previous victims indeed..
wizo_pounamu : No see bones, sir.
guardian_darrius : Dontella> Lets see you put your head in a camels mouth then
dontella plants her hands on her hips and gives Darrius a.. ohhh now your in trouble young man.. look
dontella : There aren't any camels about here..
guardian_darrius : Pou> Thats because they walk all over the bones so much the bones have become dust
guardian_darrius : My point exactly
guardian_darrius : All these people are nice and lively, and not a camel to be seen
wizo_pounamu : Darrius> Take much time for bone be dust...
guardian_darrius : Or lots of hidden camels
wizo_pounamu : If have many camel, why picture no show?
dontella : Aha.. good point!
guardian_darrius : Because the authors have been seduced by the She Camels
dontella : What?!
dontella : SHe Camels?
dontella : Are ye mad?
guardian_darrius : Dontella> What never heard of the vast She Camel Empire of Yester Year
dontella hmphs.
guardian_darrius : Its all over in the Guardian Lore....what do you think we are guarding against?
guardian_darrius grins
dontella : Ye are not guarding against She Camels of Yester Year..
guardian_darrius : Shows what you know
dontella : What happened to Free Will..
wizo_pounamu finds somewhere to lean, holding the book
guardian_darrius : How can you have free will if she camels have seduced you?
dontella : Free Will is tossed aside.. when She Camels looom?
rajak {leaves}
guardian_darrius : No...She Camels deny free will they seduce everyone
wizo_pounamu : *carefully* Camels. Ships of the desert. Camels are warm blood-ed mammals that are used for riding and carrying loads...
dontella : Aha.. see that.
guardian_darrius winks at dontella
guardian_darrius : Seriously, they don't though
guardian_darrius : Mebbe....
dontella : Meh.
wizo_pounamu : Camels are popular in south eastern desert lands where they survive longer than other animals due to the... the... res-a-vee-or... in their hump. Oh! Hump!
dontella : But no scorpion tail.
wizo_pounamu : No, tail look to me like cow.
guardian_darrius : The hump is their latest victims I tells you
dontella : Feh..
guardian_darrius : And you can't trust books written by people seduced by the last of the She Camels
wizo_pounamu : Sir, book say camel eat plants.
wizo_pounamu very clearly believes the book over darrius
guardian_darrius shrugs "Believe as you will, just don't come running to me when a camel eats your leg"
