DRAGONMOUNT

A WHEEL OF TIME COMMUNITY

Recommended Posts

A crazy man in the crazy tower - can´t get much better. Welcome, Yates! 

 

Sit down and wait for people to bring you tainted brownies. While waiting, you can tell us all about yourself. Have you read the books? Why is Death riding on a pony? Do you get any sleep these days?

 

 

*takes some hair*

YATES!!!!!!!!!!!!

 

This has been a long time coming... It's time you succumbed to your inevitable madness and sunk down into the bliss of the taint along with the rest of us...

 

(We even have liquid pure taint for drinking... no lies..)

 

Welcome :biggrin:

And here I thought, let's wait until he makes a post without ending it with a question mark... Oh well.

 

Welcome Yates.

Ah Yates,

 

Seen you around the site but great to see you joining the BT!  Sit your grim reaper pony flank down and tell us a bit about yourself while absorbing the taint this place is so well known for!

I'll never play again but there's not a game I've read that I haven't wanted to do that.

 

I'm an old school LALer.

 

But welcome to the BT nonetheless!

You're basing your read SOLELY on meta without even looking at his posts in this thread?

*Yates slowly emerges from his beer cellar carrying a pitch black bottle with a blood red wax sealed cap and a light coating of dust indicating it has been down there for some time. The care with which he sets the bottle down on the walnut trimmed turquoise counter top and wipes the dust away as if caressing an old lover evokes an immediate understanding that this is a *special* bottle. With one twist of his wrist the wax seal has been expertly removed and in what appears to be a precision choreographed routine the cap is wiped clean with one hand while a metal opener appears in his other and a flick of his thumb elicits an effervescent hiss of carbonation as the contents mingles with air for the first time in who knows how long. He pulls two crystal clear 7 ounce snifter glasses from seemingly out of nowhere and begins to pour the first glass. A pitch black cola colored beverage pools into the snifter slowly filling with a combination of the black liquid and a dark tan froth that forms from within the carbonated delight. He fills until the glass is 2/3 full and allows a frothy tan head to form and creep towards the lip of the glass. This procedure is completed a second time. The first glass, as is customary, is offered to you, his guest.

 

This is a 2007 Goose Island Bourbon County Stout. There may be a dozen bottles of this left in the world. I have two remaining.

 

*He holds his glass up to yours and touches snifters before taking a moment to inhale the sweet malty slightly bourbon scented beer with subtle notes of vanilla and oak. You take your first sip and allow the beer to fill your mouth and bathe your tongue in a viscous cacophony of rich complex flavors. Yes. This is the beer you had hoped it would be. A beer by which all others will be judged and fall short. This is a once in a lifetime opportunity. You try desperately to remember everything about the experience before sucking down the last drops from the glass.

 

*Yates smirks with a knowing look.

 

Don't worry, friend. Have I ever told you about this Belgian beer I have been ageing? Might be 6 bottles left in the world...

Not sure if that post means wheter you're at the perfect place or wheter you're not yet tainted enough.

Confirmed joiner.

 

What's a "book?"

 

*happens to drop AMoL on Yates´ head*

 

That is a book!

We believe in conserving rare things

 

**Laughs :laugh: **

You consider taint to be rare around here? I mean, we taint the taint with more taint so we can increase our taintedness!

Ow! That's just mean. I mean, I'm not dropping a tree on your head either, am I?

Taint is ALWAYS too rare.

I literally don't know what you are talking about.  When you say "taint" I'm thinking that I'm thinking about something *completely* different.  Like... a section of the body... on a man...

Care to delve deeply into my Taint, Yates?

 

That stout sounds amazing. I've been looking to get into the darker, maltier stuff as of late. Got any suggestions?

    • Neither did I when I looked for it. I had to get a grocery store manager to help me find it.     Looks like soft caramel in a can.
    • The end of book 1 is when the channeling and reactions happen almost at the same time.  After that he doesn't get the side effects of starting to channel such as taking chances, trouble moving his limbs, etc anymore and starts to experience the filth/taint.  So my guess is a channeler doesn't feel the taint until they survive the channeling and side effects happening at the same time part.
    • Re-primary debates:   https://fivethirtyeight.com/features/the-dncs-debate-rules-wont-make-the-2020-primaries-any-less-chaotic/     Sounds fair?   The early (6 person) 2016 debates on the democratic side were laughable, but that's an aside   They are clearly motivied to have as inclusive a field as possible. The idea of multiple randomly-seeded debates isn't a bad one, but it'll make drinking games harder.
    • Something I've been thinking about post-Bernie entering the race, though this article is about Warren:   https://fivethirtyeight.com/features/elizabeth-warrens-ideas-could-win-the-democratic-primary-even-if-she-doesnt/   If the policies which are primarily identified with one candidate make it into the party platform, does it matter so much who's on the top of the ticket?   I'll allow that it does, clearly, but this is a question of degree.
