I was enjoying a quiet evening in my office in Winterfell Laudanum, spamming my groups with a notice about Wednesday night’s dance at Storytellers Pub and chatting via the local messenger service with the Duke of Wolfsbane.
As I stood there in front of my second floor desk, puffing away on my cigar, I happened to look up and see before me a vampire who had not had the courtesy to knock.
He morphed from one being into another into another, accompanied by a very colorful light display.
I continued to enjoy my cigar as the following conversation ensued…
[17:53] vampire: hello sir
[17:53] Danko Whitfield: Hello

I banned him from the parcel and it took effect right there.
Pretty good timing on my part, don’t you think?
