In the Oroboros Power Plant, pengi gathered around the reactor, whirring and clanking as smoke and steam billowed out of ruptures forming on the iron shell.
Grendel walked in flanked by two pengi, #35, and 21.

Little Black Book: Update
Posted by Martin Malus on August 5, 2014 at 10:01pm ...1 replies

Tobias has been a good companion, but lately he always seems to be drunk. He’s still pleasant, even when inebriated, but he should not be drinking so much. That’s for customers, not for us. It is a sign of weakness! A game we inflict upon them!

Continued from The Family Jewels.

The large kitchen was in a state of controlled chaos, nearly every surface was hosting some part of the preparation for the evening’s feast: pies cooling, roots chopped, puddings resting, pastries rolled out but not yet filled, pots and pans sizzled and grumbled on the stove and Maggie flitted between them in a...

Making a Start
Posted by Tepic Harlequin on July 26, 2014 at 12:34am

It was not long before Tepic was back, Snotty Charlie and Billy No-Toes in tow.

"See? Got me name on it, so it's mine!" he declaired proudly.
