    Lucy stopped in Luna long enough to collect some fuses and explosives she had stored in her bank box, unbeknownst to the bank employees. They were less than vigilant, she had long ago discovered.

    The remaining leg of the journey was relatively uneventful. After a short search, Lucy found her ship still intact, although the paint had begun to chip and fade during her absence and it stunk to high heaven. As night fell, she set sail for a small group of islands north of pirate waters, and dumped the decomposed fish overboard along the way.

    Upon reaching the islands, she lowered the ships anchor and launched her rowboat, steering it toward the closest spot of land. It didn’t take long to explore the area after she disembarked. There were a few well-constructed buildings, and from the names on the house signs she realized she had found Pitmuck Island, the home of a very unusual band of goblins. “Better goblins than pirates for neighbors,” she said under her breath, while examining the ingenious structures that filled their playground.

    Wandering further, she came upon an area of empty land apparently untouched by any builder’s shovel. Lucy suddenly knew what she wanted to do. She would settle here, far from the chaos and violence she had so recently vowed to turn her back on. This was a peaceful place where a penitent like herself could begin anew, and, in time, possibly even atone for the wrongs of the past.

    When Lucy returned to Pitmuck to check on how construction was coming along, she was delighted to find the lovely gift box and warm welcome. And she ate the cookies all by herself... so delicious!

    Once construction is finished (might be a little while yet), Lucy would be happy to fix you dinner (she's been learning new recipes). :)

    That would be more then enough reason to come. Also keeping pirates out of Pitmuck is a good reason to come as well.

    The front yard is planted, but it's going to take me some time to finally get the house ready for company. :)

    *hugs*

    I did some more work on it tonight. But it will be a while before Lucy hires a free food & beverage vendor to serve the public. (Good help is hard to find these days!) The house itself is public, though, so you can see how it's coming along if you decide to drop by.

    While Lucy was putting her books away, it occurred to her that she really needed a goblin dictionary. It would be so helpful to visitors to the island if they could familiarize themselves with the Pitmuck goblins' dialect. If you could write such a helpful book, it would be a wonderful thing!

    Excellent! When it's done, I'd love to have one for my library. With your permission I'd also like to make copies to give to any visitors who come by the Deli.

    You would have to give me the list of words to translate into the common tongue of the land... and we would have to confer in order to be sure the finished work is accurate. :)

    The goblin word for food is most interesting. It translates to all kinds of things. Ice Cream, Bread, Offal, Detritus. And that stuff that comes out the other end too.

    Cute house! I don't know how the stand the smell from Pitmuck but it was sensible building the house on the other side of the island. Poor Mobi has to put up with most of it. Mind you at least the smell of fish takes the edge off of it a little.

    lol! I guess it resembles our language, then -- it should be a fun project.

    As for the the aroma in the general area, why do you think I planted so many sweet-smelling flowers? :)

    Not to worry. Confidentially, nothing smells worse than pirates who've been out at sea for weeks on end without a bath. :)

    I dunno. I heard the Mayor of Jhelom once hired a team of a dozen goblin gong farmers to work in the city. Keep in mind it gets pretty hot down there too. It was a very temporary appointment.

    Oh hey Ozog, weren't you a gong farmer at one point?

    Sometimes I wish RL was more like UO... always another chance to rez and do things over again. I know what you mean, Mirt... I really do. :(

    Take care of RL first and visit when you can.

    *hugs*
