Besty That's now the first rule of the revised Lancre Constitution, section 4, The Lancre Council
Besty (when I get around to writing it)
yesnono we have rules?
yesnono ah
Besty Yes, written by DTAS LAND
Besty Now lost forever, which is a bugger
yesnono we need a new offsite forum
Besty We do.
Besty Though the other one wasn't used much
Besty It was just me and Umgullia shouting at each other, basically
yesnono lancre cup, council meetings, threats
yesnono umgullia once threatenedd to invade me, good times back then
Besty Yup. That's something that Zamboni was going to do
yesnono but we're more active now
Besty Oh, Umgullia is a nice guy. One of my best friends in Lancre
yesnono He did it nicle
yesnono *nicely
Besty Yes, he was good like that. It's a shame he isn't active anymore
* yesnono nods
Besty I did make a forum once... I can't remember what happened to it...
Besty Oh yes, it was just before the griefing
Besty And I forgot about it
yesnono DRC, please never hack me
Besty Heheh. I'm making sure that never happens to me again
Dregruk I use a NASA-built random password generator that changes every 12 minutes
Besty That's what I could do with.
yesnono I just reling on knowing how to break into DRC's room
Besty Heheh...
yesnono and threats
Besty You're a good laydee Yesnono.
dark_roast you can't break into my room, though
Besty The proper kind.
dark_roast it is card-proofed
yesnono I could pretend to be you
Besty The card thing never works.
yesnono it does in our house, really old doors, I'm good at it
dark_roast you could never pull off the DRC persona
dark_roast although it would be entertaining to watch
Besty Off topic slightly, I know, but I REALLY need a good hat.
Besty You can't get them around her
Besty e
yesnono no hats in the UK?
Besty Not really
Besty Unless you're a mindless chav
yesnono chav?
Dregruk Hey! I've got a nice hat!
Dregruk Two, to be exact
yesnono you could share
Besty I know. But you're lucky.
Besty It's a shame that we live, like, 100 miles apart
Besty It would have to be a bloody big hate
Besty *hat
yesnono which is so far
Dregruk Don't have on of those
Besty Nah
Besty It would be a cool hat
Besty Take up like, the whole of the North of England and the south of scotland, but who cares.
Besty It would be worth it for the giant hat of doom
yesnono you have to capitalize DOOM
yesnono it's a rule
Besty Thanks for that.
Dregruk The hat of Perpetual Night for the Majority of Britain?
Besty I'll add it to the constitution!
Besty Yes
Besty Another brilliant name for it
Besty If we ever have a raffle, we are drawing it from that.
Besty All agreed?
Besty Anyway, I REALLY must be going now
yesnono agreed on the rule? or the name, or the raffle?
Besty Ummmm.. The fact that if we ever have a raffle it will be drawn from that hat
yesnono night, Besty
Dregruk Agreed
yesnono ok
Dregruk Night Besty
