The RhyDin Post / Sixteen Questions with Colleen MacLeod-Fenner
« on: January 03, 2015, 12:48:23 AM »

[size=9]Paige Connelly
Staff Reporter[/size]

Unless you?re a hermit, you have likely heard of our next guest for Sixteen Questions. Colleen MacLeod-Fenner. This spirited lady is known far and wide for her brownies (which, she was gracious enough to send some to the Post offices. They were gone in less than a minute! ). Also for having a family tree that some of need a scorecard to keep track of.

We had the honor of interviewing her. Below we share that with you. Grab that cup of coffee and enjoy.  

1>   How long have you been in RhyDin?

Long enough to remember that Panther used to regularly tend bar along with Senator Sam Speaks, Ayesha Momus, and Jeremy Kane. Long enough to remember when MacLeod, Amon, and Onyx were the names of big families in town. Maybe too long.

2>   What is the one thing about life in RhyDin that you hate?

I hate it when people are in the inn or some other public place, spitting out their business and airing their dirty laundry at the top of their lungs then they tell people to mind their own business. It?s really hard, especially for those with acute hearing, to avoid listening to that kind of thing.

3>   Is there anything about RhyDin that you would change?

Truth is, Rhydin is always changing. Maybe that?s part of its charm.  We meet new people everyday. Those of us suffering from memory impairment met new people a lot more often!

4>  You have been a fixture in RhyDin for many decades.. How old are you anyway?

You know shouldn't ask a lady that question! Then again, I?ve never claimed to be a lady other than by title. I?ll be 497 on my next birthday.

5>  How many children do you have? There is speculation that you have as many as Icer Shimmerscale.

I?m sorry to disappoint people, but I have no where near as many as Icer Shimmerscale!  If you don?t count those that are a step out of time, I have fourteen living. There are twenty if you count the others.

6>   Who?s the best eye candy?

Besides my husband, Darien, you mean?

For a while, I think Doc Anya was trying collecting a good part of it! I?ve known Antonio for many years. There?s Ali al-Amat; he?s a looker. Ebon Ilnaren, smart, that one!  Rix and G?nort, they?re fine specimens. G?nort?s very witty, excellent sense of humor.  Tass is one of the brave ones, he?ll show us everything he has under his kilt! There?s plenty more, but those are the ones that come to mind.

 7>Would you want to date them?   

 Sure, if I wasn?t already married and they weren?t already attached. I don?t fish in other people?s ponds.

8>   What is your most favorite rumor going around about you?

My favorite rumor is that I?ll bed down with any two legged male in Rhydin. A woman has to have some standards. I kept getting told that mine are too high!  First standard is being physically attractive
Second standard... intelligent or funny, either is good, both is superb! Based on that, there's about twenty percent of the male population of Rhydin that would get my attention. Of that twenty percent, half are either taken or homosexual.

9>   If you knew you were going to be stranded on a deserted island - what 5 things would you take with you?

One of those pop up shelters with the sanitary facilities and water purification systems.
A trunk of comfortable clothes, shoes, and books.
A supply of food to hopefully last until I can find something native to eat.
Some weaponry..
And, of course, my husband! He doesn?t qualify as a thing, though.

10>  What do you admire most about your best friend?/ Enemy?

Truth be told, I just don?t recall if I have a worst enemy or best friend.

11>  Who is your favorite lush?

I suppose that would be Cray. He hasn?t been around in a long time, but he was one of the few that managed to match me drink for drink and and still be able to walk out of the bar.

12>  Do you like explosives?

The most explosive thing about me is my temper! That?s dangerous enough.

13>  Who is your favorite caller?

My favorite caller is no longer active. Nycholas DeGyrlington, who was often called Reiver, is and was my favorite. Of the current crop, my favorite is Dris. He?s easy on the eyes and a fabulous showman!

14>  How do you feel about hookers?

Well, fisherman are a pretty feisty lot like pirates. But I think you mean the other kind. If woman wants to sell her favors to those that will pay, that?s her business. The practice isn?t illegal in Rhydin. It can be dangerous, though. I hear tell some of the customers get rough! That?s why we train the girls in this town to defend themselves from a young age.

15> How much are you stiffin Panther for on your bar tab?

Stiffing Panther? I might be one of the few people in Rhydin that actually pays my account or the tender on duty as the case might be! I pay at the Stars End, too. I tip, too! When I worked those bars, I took a page from the book of Ayesha Momus. She used to keep a jar on the counter that was for the orphanage fund. The kids need the money, neither of us did.

16>  Have you ever fed the stew?/ Who have you fed to the stew?

The Stew seems to like me. I have fed it plenty of times. There?s a reason tenders discourage people from eating that stuff, you know. It?s like ?The Blob,? it will absorb anything. Zombies, I fed it a zombie. What could I do? The zombie was dead set on eating the brains of the patrons. Let?s be honest, some of them need all the help they can get!

20 Cheesy Pick Up Lines Overheard In Local RhyDin Taverns Part One

Lunchtime at the Post is never dull, as colleagues gather around tables to share a meal and brainstorm to bring you the latest in RhyDin events, local color and sports.

Today?s lunchtime conversation was about the cheesy pickup lines we?ve all heard in various taverns, pubs and watering holes around this fabulously diverse city we call home.  Use at your own risk and enjoy.

1> Are you an interior decorator? Because when I saw you, the entire room became beautiful.
2> Are you religious? Because you're the answer to all my prayers.
3>  Do you have a Band-Aid? Because I just scraped my knee falling for you.
4>  I'm not a photographer, but I can picture me and you together.
5>  They say dating is a numbers game... so can I get your number?
6>  Do you have a sunburn, or are you always this hot?
7>  Is your daddy a Baker? Because you've got a nice set of buns!
8>  If I were a stop light, I'd turn red everytime you passed by, just so I could stare at you a bit longer.
9>   I wanna live in your socks so I can be with you every step of the way.
10> I thought happiness started with an H. Why does mine start with U?
11> I seem to have lost my phone number. Can I have yours?
12> Hey baby, you must be a light switch, cuz every time I see you, you turn me on!
13> Are you a camera? Because every time I look at you, I smile.
14> For a moment I thought I had died and gone to heaven. Now I see that I am very much alive, and heaven has been brought to me.
15> Do you know what my shirt is made of? Boyfriend material.
16> Did you sit in a pile of sugar? Cause you have a pretty sweet arse.
17> Do you have a map? I'm getting lost in your eyes.
18> I don't have a library card, but do you mind if I check you out?
19> Are you an orphanage? Cause I wanna give you kids.  
20> I was feeling a little off today, but you definitely turned me on.

Naked burglary suspect tells Rhydin Watch officers that he's trying to become Governor.

Leroy Jamminskin is running a new type of Governor campaign. It seems rather than submitting his name via the accounting firm, Mr. Jammerskin has opted to put body paint on his person and strut around the marketplace.
Mr. Jammerskin was arrested for burglary of a sock factory during a particularly chilly evening. The owner of the sock factory simply pressed charges, but did not want his property back.
At time of printing, Mr. Jammerskin was out on bail and awaiting a trial.

Gardenburger Mayhem

Dragon?s Gate Watch responded to a call at DG Burgers where a high strung fairy insisted that they enforce her Gardenburger order.

?You?re supposed to be here to protect me and my delicate system from the harm of the fast food establishments who know you don?t have time to eat healthy.? the fairy screamed.

Several patrons reported that the fairy got even more upset when they told her it wasn?t a Watch matter. The fairy reportedly left in a huff without the Gardenburger in question.

Theater Business

The hamlet of Little Wing, RhyDin has decided not to do a production of Cat On A Hot Tin Roof because it?s title suggests it?s abusive to cats

Other titles that were considered and discarded, include: Death of a Salesman-- For false advertising since no salesman dies, Godspell because it doesn't actually give the god spell. Mages were outraged and To Kill A Mockingbird because it promotes Avivan Abuse.

They are going to instead go with a stage adaptation of The Cannonball Run, a light hearted tale of the emancipation of a cannonball.

Small Hamlet Disappears Overnight

The small hamlet of Billsville has disappeared off the RhyDin map via a large sinkhole.

Thus far, no one who was living in the hamlet has been found.

"It's like the whole town has been sucked up off the face of the earth." commented a nearby village man who wished to go unnamed. "I was just here yesterday. There were a lot of farming folk around. Today? It's like they never were."

The Sky Is Falling!

Think we're kidding? A three thousand pound satellite may crash in your backyard Sunday night

A defunct satellite from an unknown agency the size of a fully grown dragon is set to plunge to RhyDin  somewhere between Sunday night and Monday afternoon. Experts say there's no way to precisely determine where it will crash.

Matt Simon, a commanding officer of the Rhydin Air & Space Guard, is quoted as saying.
?We are currently unaware of who placed the satellite into space, but suspect it may have been done a century ago.?

?Does RASG have any idea what the satellites purpose was??

?No. At this time, we can only speculate that it may have been used for surveillance and communications.?

So head for the bunkers if you must, RhyDinians. An ancient satellite may just ruin your backyard BBQ plans this weekend.

Spontaneous Dancing in the Marketplace

Over the past several weeks, there have been rumors of random acts of dancing taking place in the RhyDin Marketplace. While strange behavior is rarely cause for concern in RhyDin, as it is generally accepted as normal for the city, these random dance offs have caught the attention of researchers at the Dillon Research Center of Greater RhyDin.

?We?d like to uncover the reason that only certain people seem to be afflicted with this uncontrollable need to break out into sudden dance routines.? Dr. Howie Didit said in a recent interview. ?We do not believe anyone is in danger from the dancing, but if there is a genetic reason or outside influence at work here, we would like to uncover it.?

If you or a loved one have recently broke into dance, please contact Dr. Didit at the Dillon Research Center.

The RhyDin Post / Sixteen Questions with Lem
« on: August 23, 2013, 12:48:34 AM »

Sixteen Questions
August 23, 2013

Settle in with a good cup of coffee folks and get to know Lem DeAngelo.

1> How long have you been in RhyDin?
I first arrived in RhyDin about 16 years ago. I had about a 7 year vacation after a dark mage tried to assassinate me at the turn of the century. That disagreement took a little while to resolve. Here's a free, pro tip: If someone tells you they want you to be "pushing up daisies," it doesn't mean they want to hire you as their gardener. Well, who is the gardener now Mr. Dark Mage? No, wait I mean, who is pushing up the daisies now Mr. Dark Mage? Yeah, that's what I thought. ::folds his arms and looks smug with himself::

2> What is the one thing about life in RhyDin that you love?
The people. Everyone has an interesting story to tell. It's like Rhydin is a magnet for people with a troubled history. Someone should make a movie about of us. We'd have to find someone really, really old to play the role of that old codger Matt Simon though. I'll check with the retirement villages and see if anyone is available between playing checkers and eating dinner at 4:00pm every day.

3> Is there anything about RhyDin that you would change?
I wish everything was free just like the drinks in the Outback. If you want something to drink in the Outback, all you have to do is ask for the Simon Special. They bring you the good stuff and you never have to pay for it!

4> You aren?t seen much outside of Twilight Island, Annex or Arena. Why is that?
Well, I have a very demanding schedule. I need at least 12 hours of beauty rest each evening so that keeps me a little busy. After that I have to handle Twilight Island's affairs, make sure the staff is happy, keep the dueling rings and portal in working order, make sure there are no evil forces trying to take over, just basic day-to-day stuff like that.

5> When there were debates about mage registration, your voice was one we didnot hear from, can you tell us your thoughts about that?
The only thing a registry is good for is gifts giving, which means there is probably a party associated with the gifts. I'm always ready for a good party.

6> What do you think makes for a successful relationship?
Who asked??? Do you know someone??? Are they too shy to ask me on their own? I would say that the chicks must dig the beard. It's been with me for too long to go anywhere now. Also, I think it's important to be a good listener. Or at least that's what I've heard people say. I was a little sleepy when they were talking. Just needed to rest the old eyes for a few...mmmm zzzz zzzz.

7> Who do you think is fascinating to watch?
I recently participated in a strip dueling event with a young lady named Janie Devonstone. I blacked out a few times, but the parts I remember were absolutely fascinating.

8> What is something most people don?t know about you? What do they miss when meeting you?
Just because I've been around for a few years doesn't mean I've gotten old and slow. ::shows off his washboard abs:: In magic, there is great vitality. ::coughing:: Also they may not know that I get a little nervous around women ::coughing::

9> If you knew you were going to be stranded on a deserted island - what 5 things would you take with you?
I would take 4 cases of rum and 1 phone. I would use the phone to call Napoleon to come rescue me with his piRATe ship, and we would then drink the 4 cases of rum as we made a return voyage while raiding bad guys? ships and treating the ladies to a good time at each and every port.

10> What do you admire most about your best friend?
I haven't seen him in ages, but he was a fierce friend with incredible loyalty. Other than that, whoever is buying the food or the drinks can be my best friend for the evening.

11> Who is your favorite bartender?
Sissy and Warren did a great job a few weeks ago when I stopped by Stars End Bar for an evening of drinks and dueling. I'll give them a nod for their excellent hospitality.

12> Do you like sweets? What kinds of sweets are your favorites?
Of course, let me see my favorite would be macadamia cookies, strawberry pie, pecan pie, chocolate pie, caramel cake, chocolate cake, vanilla ice cream, donuts, blackberry cobbler, butter-finger cake, chess pie, chocolate chip cookies, waffles with maple syrup, and pretty much everything else.

13> Who is your favorite caller?
That's a tough one since there are so many great callers. Nappy awards points to the crowd, so that's always fun. Harris always has a lot of great commentary when he calls a match, so he's up there. Kheld always goes above and beyond as well. There are some great team callers like Rena and Aja and Misty and Sarah. It's just too tough to call.

14> How do you feel about marshmallow?
Marshmallow? Isn?t that Jesse?s pet name for Xanth? They are a cute couple I guess. Everyone loves Janth.

15> How big is your tab at the Inn or on the Island?
Hmmm what's the senior citizen discount up to these days? Don't they just write it off when you hit a certain age? If so, that is my current age.

16> Have you ever fed the stew?
I have not fed the stew, but I have heard that only the bravest of warriors have made the attempt. Perhaps it is time for the oldest of warriors to give it a try. Which would of course be Matt Simon or G'nort ::incoherent babbling attempt at his many middle names:: Dragoon-Talanador. Let me know how it works out for them.

Got someone in mind for a Sixteen Questions interview? Drop us a line and let us know!

[[Many thanks to the player of Lem for this interview.]]

Rodents over run local establishment when a pan flute artist plays for dinner rush.

A whimsical plan to entertain dinner guests turned into a nightmare when wharf rats, chased out by recent activity at the docks, over ran a small diner when they heard the music of the pan flute artist.

When asked to comment about her role in the rodent problem, Aja Bird had this to say.

?We?re covering the damage done by panicking patrons and their therapy bills. Were also going to cover the losses to the owners.? Ms Bird said seemingly generally concerned about the patrons and staff of the diner.

?Music is a draw for certain types of animals.? Kevin Dimonte who works for the RhyDin City Animal Control. ?It was just an unfortunate confluence of events.?

From field reporter Ace McSnickers--


The Watch responded early yesterday morning to a bizarre larceny report. Kw'een Hart of New Haven reported one of her freshly baked tarts stolen and fingered her son Jack, 8, as the culprit. The Watch were forced to take young Jack into custody and he was charged with larceny and general bad behavior.

Neighbors were in disbelief.

?I can't believe she went that far,? said Cher E., laughing at the debacle.

?He always seemed like such a good kid,? said Blu Beri, 45.

Jack will be tried as a juvenile at next week's court hearing. It's probably safe to assume he'll steal no more after yesterday's events.
