Today him and a VERY large penguin in sun glasses were talking to the same beaver but looking over plans for a large damn...

Henry Jekyll was not one to frequent pubs, but the cabbits were hosting a sort of storytime at the Brass Monkey. “You're all here because I would like discuss stories with you,” said the cabbit with the dark patch of fur over one eyelid, “stories of the weirder side of New Babbage!” Jekyll sat at a booth next to the bar, eagerly listening to the tales that were spun in that tiny room, hoping to get a better understanding of the city he...

This was the story I told at Tavern Tuesday, trimmed and tidied without the transcript. It was very much inspired by Discworld, I felt it a fun idea to have our own moving shop in New Babbage Lore!

Sometimes I don't understand women.  Still, what is there to understand?  Give 'em a drink, a bit of spiel, a present for the posh ones, and they're all the same.  All the same with their legs up.
