Wow! He's quite the hard case.

I'm just glad my bad love affair wasn't with an animal.

Or was it?

Alexis said...

Nope, a woman. Says so right in the description.

Hard case indeed. And a fellow easterner. Let's show these western folk how its done, Butch.

Alexis said...

It occurred to me to look it up, Butch. The region and your father's profession having being determined randomly, there is only one possible mined material in Cappadocia your father could have mined: copper.

Which would make you quite familiar with the areas of mined copper in that part of the world.

Sean said...

Wow. This dude is a wrecking machine.

Jeremiah said...

Glad we're on the same side, Butch.

Ahmet said...

My character's name is Ahmet-oğlu Ahmet -- from my understanding, medieval Turks wouldn't have last names, but use the "son of" form (oğlu means "son of"). Interestingly the father's name would come first, so -- "Son of Ahmet, Ahmet."

Alexis said...

I wrote a whole comment telling "Ahmet" that Butch didn't need to be Turkic ... and then realized Butch is Ahmet.

Pulled a fast one.

Sean said...

Hell, throw in yet another Ahmet-oglu for good.measure!

Ahmet said...

@Alexis: Got it. One Apache Bokononist coming up!

@Sean: Ahmet-oglu Ahmet-oglu Ahmet... I'll just keep oglu'ing them until they surrender.

Sean said...

Awesome.

Nine-toes said...

Can't wait to meet Ahmet in person.

Alexis said...

I'm getting confused.

Nine-toes is the monk. I assume Ku Zhi is Sean's fighter. That's obviously not his given name, so if Ku doesn't want to choose one, I'll pick a random one from his parents.

Jeremiah said...

I posted as Ku and as Nine-toes. I meant to only post as Nine-toes, wasn't watching the screen name.

Sean said...

I have only posted as Sean.
