OOC: know where you're comin' from J_F...I'm so tired lately I haven't got the energy to fart.
"OK, so we're not lost, but it is awfully dark in this passage...with no light to reflect upon the mirrors, however are we going to check our look?" said the primping Mara.
"Forgotten how we got here? Princess Booby's gamepiece fell over..." Riot scowled.
"Not my fault the game manufacturer's didn't couterbalance that piece properly," sniffed Ed. "I myself am PERFECTLY well balanced." She jiggled her Silmarils fetchingly and never so much as stumbled.
J_F had a moment of catatonia before stammering, "Fact is, we are now stuck here. And," he said with an evil grin at Edhelanna, "You got us into this mess, so you'll have to figure out how to get us out of it!"
"Moi?" she purred. "But someone bumped the board just as I was about to move...so it's not really MY fault." She turned her emerald gaze to Lark. "Perhaps as you were extricating that poison dwarf Elfkin from the knees of her...father?"
"Who are you calling a 'poison dwarf', Elfbiyitch?" grizzled Elfkin.
"No matter," Ed said with a dismissive wave of her hand. "I shall wear the consequences of this debacle and get us out of Cirith Ungol." Somehow
, she thought, while keeping her fingers crossed behind her back.
She led the hot Elf crew back into the nasty web-infested labyrinth. "Keep an eye out for spiders, eh?" Ed warned Riot. "I'm afraid I don't like those mofos very much".
"Why me?" said Riot. "Do I look like a pest exterminator?"
Lark said, "But dear, you DO like to exterminate things..."
Riot frowned a moment, then grinned, "Oh yeah...right!" She pulled a large can of Raid and a flip flop from the pack on her back. "Go ahead, arachnoid enemies. Make my day..."
Dodging devastating quantities of hair-ruining spider excretions, the group followed Ed down a long, downward spiralling tunnel. It narrowed considerably, so that they had to continue in single file, sometimes squeezing themselves through. "Coulda done with some of that butter," said Lark as she shoved Elfkin's butt from behind. "Your blocking my passage - suck it in, will ya?"
Elfkin wailed, wedged between the rocks. "Wait! Let me go sideways!" Repositioning herself, she finally wriggled through. "How the hell did Ms TopHeavy get by here?" she wondered.
"I can wrap them behind my ears, ya know," grinned Ed.
J_F said nothing.
"Ah, here at last." Ed scrambled down the last dusty steps and into a huge cavern. In the middle sat the game board, with all the pieces ready to play on.
"Amazing. How did you know it would be here?" Mara gasped.
"It's a game, isn't it?" Ed drawled. "And not just any kind of game. Right, who's next?"
