RDI Playables / Viking Business As Usual
« on: January 16, 2017, 04:16:48 PM »
Shy gave the 'thumbs up' to her former crewman when he approaches her with the idea of submitting a full-page notice in the newspapers in lieu of recent events. The notice will be placed in full view at the pub as well. She remarks, "Det er utrolig dette m? oppgis disse dager." It is a bar, after all.

Vikingr Yarns / The White Stag vs Protest Group
« on: December 14, 2016, 11:24:01 AM »

Police blotter


Several members of The Watch were dispatched to the White Stag Pub, one of RhyDin's long-standing and well-frequented bars in the Old Temple District, after a call came into the station pertaining to a serious kerfuffle in progress.  Upon their arrival at the booming business The Watch found ten unconscious males and three visibly shaken females held captive outside of the establishment by two of Shylah Vulpecula's seafaring crew: Gjurd and Magnus (no surnames given). It was noted that the ten men and three women being detained by the Norse Vikings are reportedly affiliated with the Pro-Human group currently involved in protests and sit-ins around the city.

"I'm telling you, officer, those guys are werewolves! You gotta believe me!" -Mary Applegate, demonstrator

Eyewitnesses accused the protestors of starting the altercation with their jeering and hurling of insults toward the customers who entered and exited the pub. The fracas soon escalated as the crowd outside grew larger and louder; rotten eggs as well as partially eaten slices of pizza were suddenly being pelted at the building and at any pub employee that tried to intervene.

"There were about twenty-seven to thirty protestors altogether, but the others ran off before the cops got here." -Teddy Winkels, bystander

Why the thirteen alleged Pro-Human group members swarmed inside the establishment to create additional havoc remains unknown at this time. When told to leave the premises, they refused. While the supposed leader of the thirteen was being escorted out of the pub by Gunnar (Head Barkeep and Bouncer) the other twelve demonstrators began overturning tables. It was at that point when Gjurd and Magnus became involved.

"Vi kom for mjød og a tale or two. Vi got a grand brawl også. Alle hagler Odin og Thor!!" -Magnus

The thirteen protestors were taken into custody. It remains questionable if they are actually connected to the Pro-Human movement. No charges have been brought against Gunnar, Gjurd, or Magnus. Ms Vulpecula was not present for comment.

"Uff da," exclaims the female Viking as she lowers her texting device, having received Gunnar's news about the Pro-Human sit-in and the ruckus that followed.

A message is immediately sent to Watch Headquarters respectfully requesting a copy of the incident report for her own files. Quietly mutters, "This is not the best way to advertise The White Stag!"

A Call went out to The Wild summoning them to a special meeting. Situations such as this must be nipped in the bud as soon as possible. If heads are going to roll, they just might end up on the end of spikes and put on display for all of RhyDin to see!

Vikingr Yarns / The White Stag Pub
« on: May 25, 2016, 11:14:01 AM »


Conveniently situated on a main thoroughfare south of the Marketplace, across the bridge, between the RTS Transfer Shelter and the RhyDin Museum (see RhyDin Map for exact location). Easily accessible by foot, horseback, carriage, or train.


The White Stag Pub is an Olde World European-style bar serving over 100 varieties of beer, ale, wine, distilled spirits, non-alcoholic beverages, and the very best specialty Scandinavian mead (mjød). Perchance to wet your palate with any of our other outstanding flavoured mjød, infused with blackberries, raspberries, cherries, and more.

Hungry? Order one of our hearty homemade pot pies, stews or soups. Food fit for a king, yet affordable enough for a seafarer!

Open 10:00 am-2:00 am daily

Vikingr Yarns / Vardagen
« on: April 04, 2016, 10:24:31 AM »
"Spring is here..." what lovely thoughts
These simple words convey
To a heart that's winter-weary
Awaiting Spring's first day.

Though snowflakes still may linger,
We know it won't be long
Until someone sees a robin,
Or hears his wake-up song.

Swollen buds on trees will soon
Burst forth with blossoms gay;
The sky is turning brighter blue
With each passing day.

The little brook is singing
So happy to be free;
Daffodils lift up bright faces
To smile at you and me.

Snow may linger on the hills,
But Winter's on the wing,
As April opens wide the door
To usher in the Spring.

RDI Playables / A Re-Gift Pick-up
« on: December 26, 2015, 08:40:06 AM »
(In conjunction with WHAM! 101.1FM: Request Line. Feel free to post HERE if you'd like your character to collect his/her prize from the WHAM studio.)


Shy does not mind winning a gift that Yasmin had already won in Ammy's raffle, but she definitely thinks it was highly rotten of the DJ's employers to force Yas to give those presents away. Where was their holiday spirit? Perhaps they shall be visited by four ghosties like what happened to that cold-hearted miser named Ebenezer Scrooge in the tale called A Christmas Carol. It would serve them right! And if the Viking could make it happen by contacting dead people, she would! The only problem with that brilliant idea is ... Shy is afraid of ghosts.

Instead, she contacts her loyal crewman Oddvar. The tall, burly Norseman is politely asked to retrieve her gift certificate good for two All You Can Eat Dinners at Uncle Rege?s Ribs at Kabuki Street, and her two tickets to the Shanachie Theatre?s current production of Cinderella from the WHAM studio located in the marketplace.

"Please try not to dally or get side-tracked," she quietly says with a pretty dimpled smile. Shy knows how Oddvar can be since he is a berserker. "Og if you happen to see Zazzy Yas's bosses? Well na, mayhap you should explain to them hva I tenk about their ways. Just do not kill them. Promise me!"

So off Oddvar goes, having given an oath to his Leder that he will spare the WHAM! 101.1FM executive grinches lives.

RDI Playables / Spreading Some Holiday Joy
« on: December 23, 2015, 07:42:33 AM »
Early in the morning, when nobody is around, Shy slips quietly into the Red Dragon Inn and deposits an envelope upon every table, on all of the stools at the bar, on the cushions of the wingback chairs and couches at hearthside, and into each and every cubbyhole, including the ones in the office. It does not matter if she knows the persons finding the envelopes, or not. She only cares about bringing someone a bit of joy during this season.

Inside the envelope they will find:

There is something enchanting about Autumn
Which stirs my very soul.
All of earth is alive with colour
And the harvest moon hangs low.

The lustrous sunshine brings a warmth
As it rises o'er picturesque hills.
Night air seems to crystallize
And brings a crispy chill.

Mother Nature is most generous
To grace us with her show
Through the colourful Autumn wonder
Before the Winter's winds and snow.

RhyDin Election / An Inquiring Mind
« on: September 17, 2015, 09:50:55 AM »
Each candidate is sent a letter containing only one inquiry from the Seafaring Warrior. Hopefully, those running for Governor will respond in a timely manner.


17 September 2015


To Whom It May Concern,

Na that you have tossed your proverbial hat into the ring I am greatly interested in knowing your response to the following question:

Hva (what) is the most important job of the Governor?


Sincerely,
Shylah Vulpecula

The time has come for Shy to sail the sea of RhyDin's 'humanity' via her communicator. Very few people outside of her crew even know that she has a texting device. That is about to change.

Shy begins randomly pressing numbers and sending a message. Who will end up being her unwitting victims? Will anyone respond?

The same message is sent to all:


SheWolfShy: Godt dag. Guten tag. Hola. Bonjour. Buon giorno. Konnichiwa. Aloha. Na-nu Na-nu!

SheWolfShy: I am Shylah Vulpecula. Hvem are you?


(  Want to send Shy a message?  Post it HERE. Thank you! :) )

Vikingr Yarns / Hemmelighet Meldinger
« on: February 20, 2015, 10:12:54 AM »
For a while now Shy has wanted a communicator in order to send private messages to Victor when he is at work. So on a cold winters day she went into the city and purchased a set. They are similar in size and appearance to a cell phone, yet nothing more than a texting device.
 
Black and gray in colour. Sleek and slim with a large screen for optimal viewing of messages. And a smooth sliding keyboard which locks into place.
 
The devices have been programmed. Shy and Victor have chosen their display names, and both have picked a sound effect for their incoming messages. Sitting side-by-side on the sofa they decide to send 'test' messages, making sure everything is working properly.
 
Victor is eager to hear what sound Shy chose, and texts first.

 
(wolf howl)
 
ShdwLrdVic: Hi!
 
What sound did Victor choose? Shy finds out quickly enough.
 
(guess who)
 
SheWolfShy: My arse still hurts fra rollerskating.
 
ShdwLrdVic: I could rub it.
 
SheWolfShy: You could also kiss it.

RDI Playables / Jul Card Delivery!
« on: December 16, 2014, 06:36:34 PM »
Anyone who has a cubby at the Red Dragon Inn will probably find a Jul card stuffed in it (whether they know Shy and Victor, or not). Why? Because those cubbyholes are there, and she enjoys giving cards!





(Ja, she also sent the above card to 'family' and friends who have mailboxes at their homes and/or businesses!)

Vikingr Yarns / This Is The Way The Fairies Sing
« on: June 13, 2014, 05:16:46 AM »

This is the way the fairies sing:
They all stand round in a shining ring
On quiet nights when the moon is high,
And lift their faces up to the sky.
They read the music out of the stars,
There aren't any notes and there aren't any bars.

And sweet their song as the clover flower,
And soft it is as a summer shower,
And gay as leaves that the June airs shake,
And sad as the mist on an autumn lake.
None shall light on a lovelier thing
Than the magical song that the fairies sing.

This is the way the fairies dance:
They point their toes and they leap and prance
Over and under and round and round,
Now in the air and now on the ground,
In a shimmering, glimmering moon-lit maze
To a wonderful music that nobody plays.

And swift their dance as the coming of spring,
And light as the touch of a butterfly's wing,
And strange as the gleams in a stormy sky
And changing-bright as the peacock's dye.
Oh, lucky are you if you get the chance
To learn the way that the fairies dance.
