"Ah! Picquant!"

Metter Nick loves to eat, and enjoys the meal enormously. The boar are superb! Delicately roasted, and with such herbs! Among Metter's popped rations are some soft-boiled eggs and a silver tray of condiments. There are some empty places on the tray - perhaps more delights will pop in time?

"I am curious, mon freunde, about the various items in the armoury. I confess, I am taken with the exquisite shoes. I have heard mention of a book that allows thinkamancy? What other delights have been found?"

    You shuffle into the dining hall. It is similarly designed as the throne room, but seems much more comfortable. The walls are covered in portraits depicting scenes of Manly hunting prey, with a rendition of that prey's head above the paintings. There is a giant table in the centre of the room, but oddly, it is bare. You hear a whistle from the side, and look to the kitchens.

    Manly has changed raiment. He still wears the Krown, but has donned an apron with "Kiss the Cook (that's an order)" written across it. All meat based rations have popped raw, and strangely for his position, he has taken to cooking them himself over a grilled brazier. Like the pedestal, it appears to be a magic item; Shockamancy judging by the flames and... something else. Healomancy?

    "This is the BBQ, a novelty of the Magic Kingdom. We captured it from Lore during one of my earliest missions. Beyond the mere cooking of meat, it infuses the meat with healomancy. I used to dry meat into strips and give them to my knights; kept them from dying right away."

    He looks over the rations that have popped for his warlords. Eggs, salads, vegetables. And an enormous pile of steak. Was that his or Macho's? Doesn't matter, there was plenty for the entire court. Using a pair of tongs, he starts to cook the meat, simultaneously managing a War Bore roasting on a spit over a non-magical flame. You take the opportunity to observe the enemy unit. Despite the damage it has taken from croaking and sitting in a larder, it appears vicious. And big. It has to be a C-class special at least. The whole beast was as tall as Manly, who despite its size, effortlessly turned it on its spit.

    "Ever since I was just a prince, cooking has been a passion of mine. I do not accuse the Titan's of being poor chefs, but popped rations don't hold the same beauty as a meal you have to work for. Being Emperor now will not refuse me that pleasure."

    Manly cuts into a steak. His warlord roots are obvious, as his rough eating methods would suggest. He gestures with a piece of meat.
    "Ah the Wing-tipped Boots? Those belonged to my sister, Amanda. Whenever a commander popped, my father would send his casters to buy them a magic item; his way of acknowledging our existence, I suppose. She got those boots; used to fly around court all day."

    His steak finished, he reaches for another.

    "Most of our magic items aren't those you'd see in the armoury. King Sapien was generous, but he was always a touch frugal. To his warlords, he gave proper items, and to his casters, toys."

    Macho seats and joins the feast. He takes large Man sized portions and eats as much as anyone. Despite this he seems somewhat sullen, lost in thought.

    I appreciate Father taking the trouble to feast us, but I would rather celebrate after our victory, not before


    "What's the matter, Prince?" Manly asks, "Eaten too much?" He laughs.

    I enter the kitchen with the others, awaiting whatever food would be selected for me. Once we were all served, I sit down delicately, following Rax's lead and taking a chair beside him. "An interesting custom, with the added benefit of motivating the Warlords to learn a little bit about magic in some small way, a very clever idea." I nod. "Would it be correct to say you share this curiosity about magic as well sire?" I suggest

    Manly sighs. "Ah, when I was young, Thinkamancer, when I was young. I used to wish I had popped as a caster; being a warlord felt... unimpressive. I asked Hon. Derbert if Carnymancy had any purview over this, and he laughed. I've since grown up. Warlords are the backbone of a side, Casters the fancy dressing on top. I care less about what you do than who you are. If you can laugh at a joke, enjoy a good steak or a good fight, you're alright in my book. Magic is an impressive tool, but it's lost its... well, magic."

    He glances at Cicatrix's hand, at the ring.

    "That ring? That's what I got when I popped. Oh, the trouble I used to get up to with that thing. Got captured once, hate to admit; but I was freed and took the BBQ soon afterwards, so it wasn't a total loss, eh?" He chuckles heartily.

    "You might even say your bacon was saved eh?" I joke, chuckling to conceal how our Ruler's description of casters' place on a side stung me inside.

    No, I just look forward to the turn when we can feast my, I mean our, victories."


    "All in due time, Macho." Manly grins. "But we do not always have our victories, so it is wise to feast our occasion. If victory follows, then the feast was for victory. If defeat, then the next feast will be to console us. Should we croak, well, we croak with a full stomach. I look forward to the feast when you return."

    Tank begins to eat quickly, but when he gets a taste of the steak slows down. In order to eat he appears to have raised a flap at the front of his helm, revealing his mouth. Once he's finished eating he leans back, and shuts the flap, sitting for a few minutes. Then he suddenly scrambles up, before saying "Permission to start my mission sir?" He also sends two more Peekers to the courtyard.

    Manly nods. "Granted." Then returns to eating.

    Tank exits the dining hall, making his way to the garrison. He looks up. The sun is almost directly above Lore: noon, and the turn was only half over. Two Peekers whirl into his view, and set down in the courtyard. The army has since redeployed itself to the walls and tunnels, so only five units wait in the courtyard. Three Peekers and two Archons. As Tank approaches, the Archons salute. The Peekers grunt in response.

    "So, sir." A blonde Archon starts, "Advanced reconnaissance?"

    "Yes. We're headed for Plot, trying to get the lay of the land. Saddle up, we're flying out, and I want the two of you to conserve your move." Whit that, Tank mounts the third Peeker and gives the order to fly.

    Having drawn away from the conversation briefly, I brush my eye covertly before digging back in. "Rax and I have begun studying the spellbook and feel there is much for us both to learn from it. With any luck I might even level before we reach Plot." I comment between delicate bites.

    Location: When you reach the border of hell, turn right. Can't miss me.
    The food is good, but in much larger quantities than I could possibly eat. I poke at my food, eating small bites of this and that. I hoped my future rations would be more to my taste. The conversation was of little interest to me. I found myself musing what it would be like if our side had popped a dollamancer.
