Still not having any luck attaching an avatar. Is it because I am using a library computer?
Sad to say I have just returned belowground from paying my respects to the local elf tribe, on the loss of their chief. He was from a long line of chiefs, but he was a young fellow, and had not been chief for more than two summers.
Apparently he was involved in one of those quaint campfire rituals in which the elves recite their lineage. You know, the chief pricks the palm of his hand and everyone starts naming ancestors. "Go-Long... Pig-skinner... Bryant Bear-kicker... Nay-muth the Skirt-Chaser... William the Refrigerator... Oh-jay... El-way... "
After spilling the Blood of One Hundred Thirty-Four Chiefs and Then Some, the poor fellow collapsed from anemia and never regained conciousness. I didn't stick around for The Howl, as I am not much into what passes for a choral ensemble in Elf-culture. Ear-splitting, to say the least.
