  1. Click the text-link 'Opera' in the post and it'll take you to the older (Devil in the Details) piece that mentions Jarpha operas. If you click the 'Jarpha' text-link it'll take you to the first post that gave some notes on the Jarpha. But yeah, the Jarpha all wish they could sing in the opera. Most can't. The rest shouldn't. A few do manage to make it, somehow (bribery/blackmail?) and those Jarpha are quite (in)famous for their incredibly deep bass voices, though some have baritone voices or others vocal styles. They can make a klingon weep.
    Without touching them.

  2. Cool, and as always imaginatively dense.

    Fat Sydney wouldn't be a portomanteau reference to Sydney Greenstreet and his character in the Maltese Falcon, would it? If so, neat play, sir, with early Casablanca ref.

  3. "I daresay, sir...yep." Thanks. Bogart's movies had a lot of influence on my DM/GM-ing, and I'm a big fan of Hammett. Greenstreet is one of those classic character actors that I like to slip into things, even if it takes years for the players to get-it. Which it has, in the past. Oy. I'm thining of compiling a list of movies to watch for Riskail...I already ahve one dealing with film noir...hmmm...might have to do one for general purposes...
