The third play in the set that my guy William comes from is pretty much James III saying "Everyone in Europe is having a Renaissance and I want one too," and his wife saying "That's lovely dear but we can't afford a Renaissance."

So today's DE is: What would your characters splash out a fortune on, if only they had a fortune to splash around? For the fabulously wealthy characters, what's a big expenditure that they feel genuinely satisfied with?

I hope everyone's week is going well and not too horribly hot.

Eric and Pam have some very bad days.

The crew of the Ghost causes trouble and has serious discussions about what they're doing.

A creature is loose in Milliways.

This ended up a OOM heavy post so share what EPs and threads you've finished and are following.

His mom and dad aren't home, and Tim's Not Disappointed because they're busy and it doesn't really matter, anyway, plus they sent him a very nice birthday card and a book, and his nanny bought him a cupcake, so it's been a nice birthday, really. It just... maybe had room to be nicer?

And the Bar obliges this wish when he happens to wander into the Bar, presenting him with Superbear wearing a party hat and a little bowl of ice cream, which he's eating with a big grin on his face. Come congratulate the birthday boy on turning six!

The one piece of clothing that Cassian has with him that doesn't fit with the character of Willix is his beat up flight vest, because it packs well and its warm, his identification is hidden away. Since the heating in his apartment doesn't work as it should, he opens the door with his vest on tight and sighs, he was hoping for the utility room but Milliways will work. He goes up to the counter, rubbing the back of his neck and gets a napkin.

"Fine, yes, but can I have some caf with whiskey in it first?" Cassian asks in Festian, when it appears, he goes behind the counter to try and think of specials as he warms his hands. At least here he doesn't have to lie as much and there isn't surveillance everywhere. The cocktail book is incredibly distracting and he soon has more options than he expected including ones from his galaxy that he's never heard of.

Specials
Flameout
Vista Way Margarita
Double-Dip Outer Rim Rumdrop


Once the specials are up, he stands behind the counter and looks to see who's around in Milliways.

There is a little girl and a large head of lettuce at the bar.

The girl has a glass of orange juice, a poloroid-type photograph of her, the head of lettuce and her blue ribbon from the Milliways summer fair, and a pen and paper, and she is trying to word a letter of some sort.

The lettuce is just sitting there.

Does your character keep some special object that their faith, destiny or goal can be focused on? It doesn't have to be religious, it could be deeply personal (in our pre-Millicanon, Galen keeping Jyn's toy stormtrooper) or a reminder of revenge (in the movie of LotR, Aragorn taking and wearing Boromir's glove). Keepsakes from lovers and statues of gods are of course a possibility, as well.


This daily entertainment post was inspired by the cuddly toy Bastet from the British Musuem which my actual living cats are now revering.

So while Vyvyan was mooching around upstairs, he found a weird monster thing.

He's now sitting on one of the upstairs corridors, chucking it bits of bacon sandwich to eat.

Guppy isn't looking terribly pleased today. He has his foot resting on the table, because it's still bloody sore, after some idiot started shooting through the ceiling after an escaped monster thing.

He'd go and visit Wilford in the cells, except he's pissed off and can't be bothered.

The waitrats are generally fussing over him, bringing him snacks and tea.

Emcee requests to borrow a few things from the bar: a pen and notepad, a pair of wireless headphones, and a laptop computer with DJ software.

He doesn't specifically say wireless or DJ software, since his knowledge of modern technology is still quite basic, but the bar knows what he means and gives it to him anyway.

So here he sits in a booth, staring wide-eyed at the laptop screen.

This...might take a while to learn.

Hello, Tuesday in Milliways! Guess this is a new normal now. So, speaking of things becoming normal:

What traumatic experience has become normalized to your character?

Not that DEs are traumatic.

Summer always seems to bring with it too many productions of A Midsummer Night's Dream, Quentin's found one on the television and he can't decide whether to be insulted or horrified by this one that has everyone in suits.

It seems to be missing the point and he's started tossing popcorn at the screen every time a fairy is on stage. He's in a Real Life Disney Prince t-shirt, jeans and his pointed ears are visible under his bronze hair. Soon he's going to need to get more popcorn because he doesn't understand all the weird ideas mortals have about Fae. Tinkerbell is almost better than this, at least she's powerful.

16 year old Jim got a message from his older self, telling him chances to come to the bar would be virtually zero over the next month, so he'd better take one if it turned up. He didn't say why the chances would be zero, but that's par for the course.

So anyway, the kid's taken over a corner of the bar. There's a computer, a pile of junk food, textbooks, future!movies to watch and...apparently some fashion choices to make, if the magazines and bolts of cloth are anything to go by.

He's as botherable as he ever is. Possibly more than usual.

Subbing in again!

Has your character ever been stuck with a job or a task that they were really, really not suited for? How did it go? Was it a long-term thing, the whole premise of the character, or just a one-off WHY DID YOU ASK ME TO BABYSIT?!?! situation? .....Did they survive?

After this, there's a note for Security - both at the bar, and in the office.


There's a thing running loose upstairs somewhere. It's quick as anything, and basically looks like a bowling ball with one eye in the middle of it, and something sprouting out the top. It came in with Warfstache, and got loose. He doesn't know what it is or what it does, but he was trying to kill it so it probably isn't great to have running wild.

That done, he returns to his pint. Damnit, it has gone warm.



[OOC: Wilford can be visited here. The one-eyed monster is free to be run into by anyone, at any time, in any place. It's very fast, and no one knows what it is or what it can do. Enjoy! :D]

Out by the shooting range, things have been changed, just a little, just for a little while. There are a series of heavily armored targets hovering down a long stretch of open ground, drifting slightly as they bob on their repulsors. There's a faint hum from each, barely audible against the sound of the breeze through the trees and the water in the lake.

At the firing line is Chirrut, standing tall and still, his ornate lightbow charged and ready in his hands.

Breathe in.

Breathe out.

There's a sharp snap of sound and the smell of ozone, and the nearest of the targets spirals out of position as it is struck by a bolt of plasma.



(OOC: Have a blind man with heavy ordinance, nothing could go wrong here. Baze may wander into any and all threads. :D)
