    I have unlocked this thread, as I understand the desire to comment on the game. I will be watching this very closely, and the posting rules still apply. If it degenerates I will lock it.

    Edit to add: I have changed the thread name. @porridge, you have been warned for comments about the game before it even started. That is a record even for you. Keep it fun, and keep it kind, or I'll set the collies on you.

    I mnust disagree. I believe the manor was described as moderate. Sufficient for a single knightly holding.

    Starts chorus of "In days of old, when knights were bold..."

    Let's see how bold these two are gonna be. ::coffee::

    I'm guessing that Knights aren't meant to be running around with chickens.

    Just what was he going to do with it?

    Watch the GM get rid of it really fast. Exunt chicken, stage left! Holy chicken feathers, did Lady Elena's stuff get dark quick.

    For the record, that wasn't exactly the backstory I gave her, but oh can I roll with this. *Rubs hands in evil GM Manner*

    Exunt chicken!

    Yeah, I really wasn't sure where that was going. Mallory didn't have any examples of what to do with them, or cases of knights with chickens under their arms...

    I've never read Mallory. I know about King Arthur, but am I missing something?

    Mallory did the original collation of tales about King Arthur in the Middle Ages from all the legends and tales that were kicking around.

    I have to say, as far as I am aware there are no chickens mentioned in Mallory, although there may be some in the Mabinogion. It has been many years since I last read it. There are some in the Sword of Truth series, so if you want to add a truly evil chicken, you could do worse than take inspiration from there. Or do better and do not feature one at all.

    I do very much hope that the game will continue though, as I am curious to see how this plays out.

    "And so, soon after, the lady and Merlin departed, and by the way Merlin showed her many wonders, and came into Cornwall. And always Merlin lay about the lady to have her maidenhood, and she was ever passing weary of him, and fain would have been delivered of him, for she was afeard of him because he was a devil's son, and she could not beskift him by no mean. "

    It is a little raunchier than most believe and, unlike Chaucer, does not require translations and a dictionary.
