I'm down to some briefs, socks, and shirts. I'm wearing my last pair of sweat pants. My caretaker is busy so getting my laundry done is problematical. I need money for clothes, so could you please donate using the widget in the sidebar?
On Earth her name is Alice. She is a data entry clerk for a chemical firm.
On Ærth her name is Shannon and she lives in the city of Leeds in Albion. She is a Wisewoman (Wicce if you prefer) and she was born a slave to a Merchant in Leeds. Over the years she has gained a reputation and some degree in status in her community. To the point that today her master has invited her into his office to hear his announcement.
As she enters his office much to her surprise she is asked to take a seat. "Shannon," he informs her, "With this signature..." which he then adds to the paper before him... "you are now a free woman."
He presents her with the writ of manumission adding, "Your fiance, Mark, has his own now, and so you are both free to marry whom you wish. Though be assured that I approve of your union."
Sitting back in his chair he continues, saying, "Mark is being promoted to lieutenant in my guard. You are being promoted to assistant Herbalist in my medical staff. You are not my property anymore. You are now my employee and you still have work to do. In addition you now have a house to pay for, with an attached shop. This is not a gift, it is a loan, and the two of you will repay it. The two of you have shown you are responsible and capable souls, able to handle matters such as this.
"This I'm doing because I know you're worth it, both of you. And that as freemen you are of greater value than you could ever have as slaves."
Presenting her with a cup of wine he finishes with, "Now don't encourage me to make this punishment even worse, this is not the end of my vengeance, for you and Mark are both looking forward to even greater responsibilities in the days to come."
Bringing to her feet he guides her to the door and as he shows her through he ask, "Any ideas on your family name, now that you can have one?"
Shannon thinks about it awhile, then says, "I was thinking 'Larson', our clan name before Great Grand sold my Grandmother to pay off a gambling debt."
With a smile he informs her, "That's my clan name, and I'm glad I could correct a grave mistake my great uncle made so long ago."
After a short pause he adds, "Of course, that was the main reason, my cousin."
They part, and in haze of fear and a glow she bounces off to her new house and her soon to be husband. Mark was not going to have a quiet night's sleep, and they would be loud that afternoon.
Finis: And that in short is an example of what Mythus could be like, if you don't get all hung up on it being a game.
I just got rid of the Cat Avatar Generator plugin, not because it's a bad plugin, but because my subscribers have lousy imaginations. To keep this simple, your user names are rather rote. Just not enough to hook an avatar on. It's like that tribe in Africa where the women's hair styles have to be unique. My subscribers, your user names are just not unique enough. So no more avatars.
So how about using a nickname your friends use instead of something you think makes you look special?
Back when I was a kid my Mom told me that at the age of 5 months I had either Mumps and then Polio, or Polio and then Mumps. At the age of 5 months it was really nothing. But I had to wonder, was it? Regardless of the order in which it occurred, I still had mumps and I'm still a polio survivor. But in so much as I had mumps and polio I have to ask, what effects did they have if any?
And keep in mind that Mom was a registered nurse. Back in WWII she was a nurse in an army hospital in New York City. RNs advise doctors.
But any way, does polio have an effect on infants that last into maturity?
I have the feeling the current front runners in the Democratic Party are going to be gone and forgotten by the end of January 2020. Why? Because we're going to get bored with them.
Let's get real here, modern journalism is infested with the greedy and lazy. With people who's only interest is in their bank account and stock portfolio. They're not reporting on events, they're selling ad space.
And coming soon, Putin invades Turkey in support of his Kurdish allies. Nato ignore this action.
It comes down to this, I need a new Macintosh. A new iMac, a New MacBook, a New MiniMac with monitor and keyboard, one of 'em. And why Mac? Because Linux is too dang fussy and Windows just ain't reliable. Then there's the fact I can only use Nisus Pro on a Mac, and Office for Mac just looks better than the Windows version. There's something close to 7,000 of you out there, and you're all broke?
