Wild Surge Inn / Mangus visits the orphans
« on: January 20, 2021, 01:47:40 am »
Mangus walks into a nondescript house in Vehl where the women of the poor, make do as best as they can to help manage the dark destinies of innocent children who otherwise have nothing, and no one to care for them. Ever short on resources, they survive on a patchwork of scraped together supplies, always shortest on the list: food. The nourishment the children need, can sometimes be the furthest from reach. And Mangus knows this.

He knows this place well. He spent his early childhood there. He knows the feeling of hunger the children all share, and the plainly visible desperation in the faces of the women who work tirelessly to care for them. More troubling to him, he knows the carelessness with which the city, and the world  around that place, regard it. To them, it is unseen, barely noticed, forgotten. They pass by that house on their way to some duty of such greater importance, as if it wasn’t even there. It is not even scenery to them. And Mangus was that; the element they didn’t see. Some horrible distraction, to be avoided, and ignored. But his youthfulness and ignorance shielded him from such stark realities, and his constant hunger, gave him something else to focus on.

Although, he was one of the lucky ones. As he looks back on those days, he realizes he did not grasp the importance of his fortune, until much later in life, and so much of it, he doesn’t remember at all.

But he does remember the moment a woman walked through that door carrying a bag and asking for the whereabouts of Mangus Clawfoot. It was the day he met his grandmother,  the day, he received a fighting chance, the day he became Mangus Crunch. And that stayed with him. Along with it, he maintained a keen regard for the greater importance for any one of those children, to also receive a fighting chance. And as he gained his footing with the help of his grandmother, he developed a broader commitment to that cause. He made a vow to himself, and no one else, that, when he could help, he would.

And on this day, he enters that nondescript dwelling in Vehl with a bag in his hand, and sets it on the counter. A woman there looks up at him almost alarmed. His disposition is very imposing to her.

He regards her gently, and speaks in a soft voice.

Er brings diss coin fer dem orphans. See dat dey eats good tonight.

*Brutus Clawfoot  find himself awake at once deep in the bowels of a forgotten dungeon. With a terrible gasp of hideous Half-Orc breath, he yelps and lands in to a vague and rough consciousness.*


*He looks around, bewildered and in a funk. He is slow to shake off the thick muck of too many years lost to the either.  The dungeon walls are closed all around him.  His new awareness is muzzled by his complete isolation. Modern devices such as iPads and EE versions, are of no concept to his existence. Only  the four walls of his personal dungeon have any  relevance.  He stares into the darkness quieted by his predicament. Then suddenly there is a flash of blue light that blinds him temporarily. The light remains in a circle of energy and promise.*

What the...?

What’s dat? Some kinda portal? Er wonders what’ll happen if Er goes walk’n in to it?

 //If only I had half the wit and wisdom of Edgar Allan Poe! //
Deh Raven by Mangus Crunch
Er wanted to go
In deh blithering snow
To deh pits of er icy cavern 
What Er din' knows
Was deh cold nearly froze
Me fingers as dey clutched me lantern
Along deh way
Corky an me,
An'Gisom was fight'n Goblins.
Dey weren't  afraid
Of me club an' dey blades
So's dey smashed me on me noggin! 
An' some how Er saw him
While Er was er brawl'n
On er tree branch nearby,
Deh Raven!
But Er paid him no mind,
Spend'n me time,
Smash'n dem goblin's skulls in. 
An' Gisom an' me
An' dat dere Corky
Was bust'n dey bones all in!
But den deh cold 
Starts tak'n er hold
An Er quickly git's to freez'n
We was fight'n  some Wargs
Giv'n dem our worst
When suddenly again... Er see's him!
Up in er tree 
As plain as can be
Dat ominous bird
Deh Raven...
But Corky an' Gisom
Was too busy given'm
Wargs er senseless beat'n
Dey was in er hurry
So Er din' worry
No thought to any retreat'n
Den giants we found
An' dey comes around
Bang'n  me head in deh snow
When Er hits deh ground
Er looks around 
An' Er seen him wouldn't yew know?
Dat black bird of night
He gimme er fright
Just er star'n me down
Deh Raven...
Now Lucky for me
Quickly Corky
Done picked me up an' saved me! 
While Gisom was smash'n
Dem giants, Er drank er batch er
Dem potions what Corky gave me!
Den Er see's up ahead
Deep in deh dead
Of deh cold, er icy figure!
He's stand'n dere wait'n
To smash me Orc face in,
With a fistful of clenched icy fingers!
Er thought struck me mind 
While he struck me blind
Dat he had been sent by...
Dat Raven
Er nearly died
We barely survived
When somehow Gisom beat him
An Er was relieved
When Er finally seen
Him lay'n there defeated
We was slow to recover
From dat icy bugger
But after some time we was leav'n
As we left it got colder.
Er looked over me shoulder
To see if Er could see'm,
Deh black winter foul
Who was out on the prowl,
In dat cold, cold place,
Deh Raven...

Mangus and a bearded,  peg leged dwarf with a patch over his left eye are seen wandering off into the woods outside of Vehl  singing some  almost entirely unintelligible lyric having to do with Leningrad  and a bag of stones  rhyming occasionally with sack of bones. They are carrying several bottles of some toxic concoction each  and draped over Mangus's left shoulder is a freshly killed deer carcass  with its head still attached.... \\\\Hi there gang. Sorry I've been So quiet lately. I've been producing a haunted house for a nearby country club, it's a one day event but it is requiring an extraordinary effort. As soon as the haunted house is over, I will be going on holiday for an honest three or four weeks. Sadly I'm too wrapped up  to go be Mangus steadily until  December.. I sure do miss him and all the WONDERFUL people here. So don't count me out!  I'll be poking my head in during the first few weeks of November then I will flitter off again for a few more weeks in December.  Then I will jump right back in and send Mangus to the first pub he sees in Fort Vehl!((in case any of you forum lurkers are reading this, this is a great website, these are great people, you should definitely jump in and join us!) See you all soon!\\\

Mangus blinks and stares blankly at the clerk at the Saddlebags shop.He blinks some more and stares some more while a slow grinding process takes place in the worm infested gunk in his over bludgeoned head...."Huh?!Whadayamean yew ain' got no better gauntlets den dese here Gauntlets er Ogre power?"The Clerk stare blankly back at him almost to mimic his own blank stare but the gesture escapes him easily... (//Darn it! Young Frankenstien is playing in the background and it is  so hard to consentrate here. In short, Mangus will pay you whatever you think is reasonable for a pair of "Greater Gauntlets of Ogre power" or whatever they are that will give him a +2 to strength.//) "But....But...  Er needs stronger gloves den dese! Don' yew know's no body who might have'm? Er got GOOD coin!"  //Will someone please help poor Mangus? He is willing to pay handsomly//

One for Kalberen
Er meet's er Elf
Who don' treats me well
'Cause he thinks Er wants to eats'm
But Er knows  Er won' 
'Cause down in diss hole
Eef Er wants to gits out Er needs'm
Spiders was there 
But dat Elf din' care
'Cause he could easily pierce'm
Use'n his bow
His arrows dey flowed
Fluidly fast an' fearsome!
Er was er smashen'm
With me club, an' er bashen'm
In like dey was goo
But dat elf's magic arrows
Flew faster den sparrows
An' each time, his aim was true!
An' yew know, even though
Er felt sickly an' slow
An' sluggish from alla dat poison,
Er was er whole lotta glad
On my side Er had
Dat Orc hate'n Elfish person!
An' den in deh end
When we comes 'round er bend
An' finds deh exit at las'
An' dat Orc hate'n Elfish 
Person weren't selfish
He gimme half deh silk what he has..
So now Er believes

Not all Orc hate'n alla dem
Dem spiders was mean
But we got out clean

« on: July 18, 2014, 11:49:16 am »
Mangus's song about Corkey
Er tells yew deh story
Erv er feller named Corkey
What saved me life one day
He stands er bit shortly
An' jis er bit portly
But he's strong in his own way
Down in deh dungeon 
Deh smell was repugnant
An' Er was taken er beat'n
When alla deh sudden
Out from me bludgen'n
Er heard er fateful greet'n
"Ahoy!"said he
"Please forgive me"
"I see's yer gitt'n beat up"
"An' iff'n yew want's"
"I'll sing yew this once"
"An' help's yew turn's deh heat up!"
An' he sang...
"Git up an' smash'm"
"Git up an' crash'm"
"Fer yer stronger den before"
"Git up an' trash'm"
"Git up an' bash'm"
"'Till dey can't takes it no more"
Now Er ain' too cultured
Er'm as suave as er vulture 
But Er know's er thing er two
An' when he start's singing 
Me ears, dey starts ringing
An' me club, it starts swing'n true
It git's smash'n an' crash 'n
An' trash'n an' bash'n
An' mak'n er big bloody mess
An' Er'm feel'n stronger
It ain' dat much longer
'Fer Er finished off deh rest
After some time, 
Er comes to find
Er beat up every last one
So Er git's to think'n
Its time fer some drink'n
Deh battle is all but done!
An' he sings...
"Git up an' smash'm"
"Git up an' crash'm"
"Fer yer stronger den before"
"Git up an' trash'm"
"Git up an' bash'm"
"'Till dey can't takes it no more!"
"See here little feller"
"Er wants to tell yew"
"Thank yew for helping out"
"Kin Er buy yew er whiskey"
"To toast diss here victory"
"Yew helped me win dat dere bout"
"An' Er owes yew a favor"
"Cause yew din' waver"
"When Er needed yew deh most"
"Yer song helped me thwart the"
"Enemy Corky"
"An' so er wants to toast!"
I raises me mug
An' fore Er kin chug
He jumps up on deh table
An' pulls out er lute
An' toots on er flute
An' sings er little fable!
An' he sings...
"Git up an' smash'm"
"Git up an' crash'm"
"Fer yer stronger den before"

The Ballad of Gromak and Harri as sung by Mangus Crunch
Sung to the tune of...
...let's not kid ourselves. Where Mangus's singing is concerned there isn't much in the way of tune involved.
...let alone tone.
Just try to imagine a drunk half naked Orc dancing on a table at the One Eyed Harpy singing this song. 
...Actually, maybe you shouldn't try to imagine that.
Oh Er went on er journey
In search er some bounty
With me mateys er Gromak an' Harri.

At houses of ill repute!

                 Two pebbles
All the pebbles in the river are green.
All the pebbles on the riverbed are white
One of the green pebbles in the river said to one of the white pebbles on the riverbed; " I like you. You are white and beautiful,  and I want to be nearer to you."
And the white pebble on the riverbed said; "I like you. You are green and beautiful,  and I want to be nearer to you."
Then One thousand years passed.
There they remained.
And the white pebble on the riverbed said to the green pebble in the river; "I still like you and I still want to be nearer to you."
And the green pebble in the river said; " I still like you and I still want to be nearer to  you."
Another thousand years passed
There they remained
The white people said; " I want to be near you!"  The green pebble said; " I want to be near you!"
On that day, the wolf was chasing the deer.  
The wolf was getting closer and closer, nearer and nearer.
The dear knew that if she crossed the river it would slow the wolf down, so she raced across the river, and it worked! It's slowed the wolf down. The deer got  away. The wolf gave up the chase.
But when the deer raced across the river she kicked up both the white pebble and the green pebble,
When it was all over the white pebble said; " I am in the river!  Where are you?" and the green pebble said; "I am on the riverbed!"
In one thousand years the white pebble turned green and the green pebble turned white, and a day came when the wolf caught  the deer.
This is the way of time.

Ouch! So thats what lag death feels like. I just lost 20,000 xps and got a soul stone, (yikes!) to being killed by a creature who wasn't even in the same hall as me and I didn't even get a grave to pray over. Oh my! I think the site needs a reset or something. It has been kinda glitchy those last few days there. I'd like to make a gracefull plea for my soul stone and exp's but I'm Too dimm to know how to proove it or anything. I dont know how to do thoses still shots that you guys do, plus its too late anyway. But a reset will help!Good luck with all that! On a different note, I'd like to say again, I'm absolutly loving it here!

Mangus Crunch //OOC// Cordially invites you to join him on his "start" date. I will be delivering him to your welcoming or unwelcoming, claws or hands or even mechanical bits, to plot against or make friends with, as you see fit, on Monday April 21.  I have the whole day off so I plan to run him for the entirety of the time more or less so I should be at your mercy for all the time zones. (are you hearing this Australia?!) so if you're feeling the need to corrupt someone, kick someone around, act as a tour guide, be helpful to someone, or just go smash some skulls (hopefully there will be plenty of that!) com'on down to Brutus Clawfoot's "Here's Mangus Crunch emporium"  and get your self one very fine piece  of Dealer Certified RP and show Young Mangus Crunch a good 'what for' !  (in lawyer speak) offer limited to participating members. Supplies are limited. Offer only good while supplies last. Skull smashing can only be had when the smashing of skulls is occurring. Young Mangus Crunch is not a trademark of anything really. RP is good, and you should get some. Void where RL plays a hand! I hope to see any or  all of you there! Cheers! LOL! Oh and for what it's worth you may notice Mangus on Sunday as well but on that day I'm really only planning to get him sorted out and organized so he will be ready for Monday. (forgive me if he isn't very social on Sunday) Enjoy!
