A few of you may have bumped into the straw thread on the Game Help forum and wondered:
"What the >bleeep< is this doing here."

So I might as well open up a nice piece of prime forum estate and hand it over to MRed.

So let me recapture the last two or three posts to bring the new visitors up to date...


MRed looks around at the various things that comprise the compound where she lives. She has now bought out the neighbors on all sides, and her place is beginning to have the feel of a well-rounded home....She has a clipboard in her hand, as the place has gotten so large, she needs to keep track of what is where...she is working diligently on the map in her hands...

"OK,let's see:

1.Mastaba to the left..surrounded by gardens and statues of birds. Holy pond stocked with crocs and Holy ibises walking in the papyrus reeds and lotuses.
2. Small residence to the right, more gardens, and small statues of Bast. Palm trees surround the house proper, and to the right of the largest garden, you can see ostriches busily pecking in the sand.
3. Juggler booth to the extreme south, with an unknown juggler marrily twirling what looks to be oblong balls of some kind. (Note...go and meet the nice fellow. He looks thirsty.)
4. Down the block, a bazaar and a scribal school are bustling with people. (Note..tell the bazaar lady I need a second type of food.)

Watching the sidewalk for a few minutes, she notices the passersby, among them a priest in blue, an embalmer, a tax-collector, a magistrate...coming from the courthouse up the street.., and a few more of the water carriers that PAC inquired about. She also notices that the development in the next block is well underway, with a new complex of medical offices and a clinic in the final stages of construction. She sees signs swinging in the welcome breeze off the Nile. "HMMM" she says. Here come the apothecary, dentist, and the physician, argueing fiercely amongst themselves..... "What on earth are they fighting about", she wonders. "Well, time for that later." She turns and again gazes at her home, noticing for the first time the new pottery that had been delivered that morning. "Yippee!" she exclaimed. "I can plant those new herbals that I got this morning from a trader."

She walks closer to the house, and sees the notes that are tacked to the wall of her house by the door. She knows that these are messages from her friends, as they all have a place to put notes to each other on their houses.

The first one is from PAC: "MRed, I have gone to Pushkar for the dung beetles. Be back soon with the ones that stay in the cart." PAC

The second one is from Pounce: "MRed, I am waiting at my house for you, as the dentist has just been here, and I don't feel too well. We can work on my official signature there, if you don't mind." (Note...gather herbals and beer for Pounce, he will need them.)

The third note is from Angel J.: "MRed..Sometimes going off post is more fun...Carry on."

She carefully takes the notes and puts them into one of her many pockets, saving them for reminders of her day.

She makes a few more notes in the margin of the map she is making: a.) Put a note for PAC in the hands of a runner to Pushkar, telling her to bargain fiercely for the camels Hare and Krishna. b.) Gather the citronella herbals for an unguent for PAC's mosquito bites. c.) Tell Pounce about the cats that live in the house, and show him the ones in the barn. d.) Get Perry from Harkon.

MRed turns and goes towards her gardens, intent on gathering herbals for Pounce, and she calls to a workman to load some beer barrels onto a cart for her....

*On the Road to Pushkar*.........

"Please take this 'post it papyrus' back to MRed, messenger."

"MRed...oooooh thankyou for the citronella herbals, feel much better Agree that it is imperative that I get Hare & Krishna! Otherwise how am I going to provide fresh dung for the beetles? Been thinking......well.....you know that Wend is planing a party for Christmas I think, well....now you have plenty of room....and beer......and assorted herbals?????....Ah go on MRed, we'll all help get the place ready.....it would be a wonderful house for friends to gather in for a friendly chat??? Please say we can have part of the party in your house????? I will double my efforts with the beetles and the camels??? You could show off your Mastaba!! "

PAC



MRed is sitting at the small table in the corner of her beautiful gardens, busily writing on a long scroll.....

She is mumbling to herself.."Ok, let's see. PAC says we should have the Christmas Party here. She will get back soon with the camels and the beetles, and I need help with the following things to get the place ready in time for the party.

1. Need a few of these critters:
a. scorpions
b. vultures
c. snakes
2. Need "natural-looking" enclosures for the above critters, so as to be able to exhibit them without anyone getting eaten or bitten.
3. Need 3 1/2 tons of Aswan granite delivered at the cheapest rate possible.
4. Need 42 workers to turn the granite into a stele worthy of my accomplishments. These workers will include haulers, carvers, polishers, and painters.
5. Need Lapis Lazuli, onyx, rubies, garnets, and opals for the inlays on the stele.
6. Need the firepit built for the top of the lighthouse, and need the steps completed to the top. Polished crystal is in the storage yard to the left for the windows to the lighthouse.
7. Mirrors in the storage yard to the right need to be set up for the reflection of the light on the Bast statue in front of the Mastaba.
8. Mastaba needs the capstones aligned with the points to the 4 winds.
9. Need to hire jugglers and dancers for the party. (Note: check in Thebes for the dancers..theirs are the best.)
10. Need to hire serving people for the party.
11. Need a list of the food we will need.
12. Need to have the beer transported from the farm to storage yard number 3.
13. Need to hire bartenders for the party.
14. Need to order the rest of the furniture for the house, and get it delivered. (Note...need 46 chaise lounges)
15. Gather the herbals from the 27th, 28th, and 34th farms and set them to drying. These are the tea, incense, and smoking herbals.
16. Need to get to the Bazaar in Luxor to have my final fitting for my dress.
17. Need to rest for a few days after the above is accomplished.
18. Send a messenger to Rome to post the request list for the "Get ready for the Party" party.
19. Contact Wendoolicus to let her know that the Christmas party can be held here, providing I get enough help to finish the place by then.

There, I think that ought to do it."
She leans back in her chair, going over the list, and, finding it to be what is needed, relaxes and falls asleep.......

MRed stirs in her chair, and stretching for a minute, clears her head of the remnants of her nap....
Mred looks around her....."What? What happened? How did we get here?"

Angel J drops down out of the sky for a minute to explain what happened...

"Hi, MRed...Seems that we got bounced out of the other forum, so I dropped us into this one. Carry on."

"Whew, thanks, Angel J! I thought for a minute that I had woken up in a nightmare..." MRed answered. "now, where was I?"

Pharonic Pharty Animal to the rescue MRed... So kind of you to offer your joint for the Pharoah Party at end of year - it is PERFECT (er can you ask PAC to ease off sending the dung beetles thru the papy-mail though - they've taken to swimming in the ale supplies and are no longer doing their proper job, **** piling up everywhere!!!.).

This place is AMAZING - I've just got back from a somewhat perilous and gruelling space-trip, and need a bit of R&R. Why thank you, I will have some of that ostrich cheese and some of those dates as well.

Now lets negotiate - heh heh heh - you needed Lapis Lazuli, onyx, rubies, garnets, and opals for the inlays on the stele hey? Well I just happen to have a plentiful supply of these - so what are you willing to trade?

"Ah, Wendoolicus....Trade, huh? Well, I noticed on my latest trip to Rome that you and your friends are stocking a theater? I just HAPPEN to have a stock of period costumes, left over from a successful trip to Tibur last year. Might you be interested in them? And, yes, you can have the theatre here(as part of the trade), there is a spot open just to the south of the ostrich plateau..."

MRed chuckled quietly to herself, and went on making preparations for PAC's imminent return.

"Ah, the dung beetles are causing a problem, are they? Miss PAC needs to have some help gathering them up and bringing them home...Kiya-shepset, please run like the wind to PAC, and help her gather those pesky beetles and get them home safely....Thank you. Oh, make sure you tell her that you are Kiya's daughter, and that I trained you myself."

She put down her scroll of things to be done, and looked about her for a gardener...She needed to have the gardens whipped into shape for the arrival of her friends for the "GRFTP" party...

MRed's "To Do" list scroll is unraveled on her lap, and is now spilling onto the beautiful tiles under the table.....

Addendum to list:
Items 15, 18, and 19 finished.

20. Send runner to Lugdunum for a store of peanuts for Big Tusky.
21. Find all the secure covers available for the kegs of beer..BT is coming....
22. Have the costumes sent from storage yard number 17 to SY number 4, for Wendoolicus and her friends to inspect in anticipation of trade.
23. Hire some boys to keep the dung beetles out of the alcohol. (Make sure they have reed brooms to sweep them into line.)
24. Commission Hera-Ra to make the above mentioned reed brooms.

"Ah, I think that is updated for the present. Time for supper."

The two egyptians sit cross-legged on the floor, while the servant fan them with large-ostrich-feathered fans. The room is nevertheless dark and hazy from the water-pipe sitiing between the traders. Oil lamps flicker. A sumptuous feast sits before them, but they are far more intent on the business at hand

Wen N'Bet Mer Hmmmmmmmmmmmmmm.... MRed-Kam-Ca-Seneb-Kebab-Kebish.....while I apppreciate your most generous offer of the costumes, you must understand the true beauty and mystery of the jewels I offer you. These precious stones have come from one of the mighty Pharoahs tombs - they are ancient and beautiful and have been blessed by the Jewel of The Nile himself (not to mention Joan Wilder).

I was thinking more along the lines of 24 gold mines, 2000 bricks of gold, 13 camels, 18 barrels of your finest egyptian wines, a year's supplies of your freshest, plumpest dates, and ... oh yes.. and 4 of your best serving men in the gold lame skirts (my friend Patheticos has a need for these).

The servants, anticipating a very, very long night, dug their heels into the sand and called for more refreshments and another supply of the smoking herbals.....Outside, the birds began calling to each other in the gathering gloom, while the torches lit up the area around the tent.....

"Ah, Wen N'Bet Mer....You drive a hard bargain......Let's see.... As a counteroffer, I will present you with 12 gold mines, located on the steppes of Saquaar; 600 bricks of gold; 42 of the finest 4 carat diamonds in my stores (stolen from Philistines as a battle raged and blessed by Mercury himself); the Green Bay Packers football team (I acquired them on a trip to the New World); 8 rescued Hittite Elephants; 300 barrels of my finest Egyptian wines; a 6-months supply of the dates; a 6-month supply of my finest Greek olives; and 14 of Mediolanum's most beautiful bath-girls....."

MRed leaned back against the mound of pillows at her back, took a leisurely toke off of the water pipe, and reached for a handful of her Greek olives...

Sorry this took so long to reply - my boss actually had the hide to ASK ME FOR SOME WORK ... huh!!! The cheek!!! Now where were we....

The servants in the gold lame skirts looked particularly nervous - they had heard about the Great Pushkar Dung-Beetle gatherer Cow-Patti-Ann across the land, and trembled as they imagined just what future they'd have with her.

MRed-Kam-Ca-Seneb had a smirk on her face, as she thought the offer would be too good for the Wen N'bet Mer to resist. She was in for a rude awakening, and a long night of negotiations indeed

Wen N'bet Mer spoke eventually... (with the same fixed sickly smile on her weather-beaten face)

Ahh MRed-Kam-Ca-Seneb-babushka...you too drive ze hard bargain. I think the Gods of Trade must surely be shining down on you. Your offer is good, particularly the Hittite Elephants and the Green Bay Packers...but it still seems too simple for the finest jewels in the land.

Because of your wonderful hospitality, perhaps I am willing to reduce ze price somewhat....

What would you say to
18 gold mines, 1500 bricks of gold, 10 camels (but I don't want that one out the front of the tent who just spat in my eye), 600 barrels of your finest egyptian wines, the Green Bay Packers team, 42 4 carat diamonds, nine months supplies of your freshest, plumpest dates, and ... oh yes.. and 18 of your best bath men in the gold lame skirts.

WenN'betMer also leaned back against the mound of purple & gold silk pillows at her back and laughed to herself thinking (she does not know ze prize I am really after...)

MRed began puffing furiously on the water pipe, and called for a stronger bundle of herbals...The cloud of smoke rising to the top of the tent grew denser and denser, beginning to obscure the silver poles holding the tent....

"Ah.......you bargain fiercely, Wen N'bet Mer.....I so enjoy a good challenge.....Another counter offer...."The lines of concentration in MRed's forehead deepened as she began to think about all of the goods she had for bargaining....Then her face relaxed, and brightened....."Ah...I have it......on the bargaining table, I will place....The GB Packer football team; 14 gold mines; 4 marble quarries outside Miletus; 1200 gold bricks; 8 Hittite elephants; 2 new crocodiles delivered today from the banks of the Nile; 600 barrels of wine; the 42 diamonds; 8 months supply of dates; 16 bath girls in gold lame skirts; 100 dung beetles; 20 ostriches; and 15 acres of prime river frontage at Cypria."

MRed leaned back once more into the pillows piled at her back, and admired the many gold and silver bracelets adorning her left arm....."hmmmmm, I wonder what it is that Wen really wants? she is driving a really hard bargain here, and we might really be here all night..." MRed thought to herself...

Wen N'bet Mer sat calmly - disbelieving that her friend still hadn't offered her the prize of all prizes - she sat and licked her lips as she thought of the delicacy they had shared a few evenings earlier.

"But as Allah once said, MRed-Kam-Ca-Senebah......." ...er ... I forgot what he said ....She sat down once more looking extremely puzzled. Too much of MRed's famous water-pipe had made her head a bit fuzzy.

Oh where was I.....yes....um, we are getting closer to the trade I think -

I accept the GB Packer football team;
14 gold mines;
4 marble quarries outside Miletus;
1200 gold bricks;
8 Hittite elephants;
2 new crocodiles delivered today from the banks of the Nile;
600 barrels of wine;
+ 14 Bottles Cointreau
the 42 diamonds;
8 months supply of dates;
16 bath BOYS in gold lame skirts;
100 dung beetles;
20 ostriches; and
15 acres of prime river frontage at Cypria."

But there is one more thing I think you would like to give me, is there not oh wondrous one? (making sure MRed did not lose face).

Wen N'bet Mer leaned back once more into the pillows piled at her back, and dreamt of the beautiful Corn Dogs they had shared the evening before. Will she offer them? Will she offer them? Wen prayed to all of the Gods at once, hoping the sharp trader MRed would make the offer....

So *this* is where the party moved to!!!

Perry is all ready to go, we've shined up his bronze collar with the lapis lazuli inserts, and he has agreed to guard the beer, attempt to ignore all cat deities (all cats are deities, aren't they??? that's what Kile and Finny told me and I told him!!), feed the dung beetles, and do his best grumpy, drooling, spitting impression of a camel

He is also bringing along his very own nyla bone frisbee in case the jugglers are not entertaining enough and we have a threat of mass exodus from the small residences. He can entertain and threaten to eat them if they leave all at the same time, he's multi talented!!

Should we bring straw?

Mred sat in deep thought, going over in her mind the past few weeks she had spent in Rome, at Wen N'Bet Mer's recovery room, talking and laughing and sharing the stories they shared.....All of a sudden, a golden light bulb started glowing over MRed's head.....She leaped to her feet, started pacing quickly around the tent, and said......

Ah....Wen N'Bet Mer......I will make one last offer...take it or leave it. If you don't accept this offer, I will have to seek my jewels elsewhere....and, since I know that the jewels you offer are the finest in the land, and will grace my stele with beauty and rarity, I sincerely hope with all my heart that you will accept this offer.....

14 Gold mines at Saquarra
4 Marble Quarries outside Miletus
1200 Gold Bricks
8 Hittite Elephants (Rescued and deprogrammed)
2 Crocs delivered fresh from the River Nile this morning
600 barrels of my finest Egyptian wine
14 bottles of my exquisite Cointreau
42 4-carat diamonds stolen in a Philistine battle
8 months supply of my freshest and plumpest dates
16 Bath BOYS from Mediolanum in gold-lame skirts
100 dung beetles from Pushkar
20 Ostriches from the plains of Thebes
15 acres of prime river frontage in Cypria
The Green Bay Packers football team

And I will also offer you the services of one of my servants for a year.........tell him.....MRed laughed to herself, as she now knew what Wen was after...
"Deep-fry that sucker, PEDRO!!" and he will make you that most exellent of delicacies, the CORN-DOG........
MRed sank back onto the carpet from Persia that lay on the floor of the now extremely cloudy tent, and slumped into the red satin and velvet pillows that were heaped behind her..."I think I got her this time....hee hee" she mused....

Just remember, Wen N'bet Mercy, I require 90 pounds each of the jewels you have, to grace the most beautiful and wonderful stele in the world. You drive a hard bargain, and this is my final offer.....consider it carefully before you reply.....

"Whew..."thought MRed....I thought she was going to reject that offer. Wonder if she knows how many of those darned elephants are pregnant?.....Not to mention that the ostriches eat EVERYTHING that they lay their mouths on....!" She sat in silence, contemplating the vision of the stele she was going to erect, and how wondrous it would be, shining in the sunlight, with the glitter of the beautiful jewels she would add to it......

"Ah, my friend.....I will celebrate with you, as I am getting a store of the finest jewels in the land for my stele......" Meet you in the recovery room...

But before we go, I need one small favor......and I am sure you will agree....

Hey Pedro! Deep-fry that sucker!
One each for my friend and I before we go to the recovery room..."

MRed and Wen N'Bet Mer sat in companionable silence, munching their corn-dogs and thinking about the bargain they had successfully struck...And then, with a shimmer, they faded out of site...The servants looked about them in confusion, and then decided not to tell anyone about the traders disappearing.....

drat!! If only I'd known what corn dogs were worth these days!! Del was eating them for a while, but with the whimsy known only to a five year old, he has decided they are now untouchable and I just pitched a couple of dozen on trash day!!

Couldn't feed them to Perry, Perry only eats healthy food

Hi Harkon - haven't met you before ... so..er g'day (I'm from Oz )

These Corn Dogs - are they really good? Hope so, cause I think I just sold my soul for some of them heh heh (Gosh MRed's a hard negotiator!!!!).

So have you played C3, and I assume you're going to play Pharoah? Whatever, its extraordinarily addictive, which is why I lurk around here for respite.

Anyway, welcome, welcome, welcome - and if you're ever in need of a "virtual" party you've come to the right place.

MRed sits at her table, going over her list of things to do, wondering how in the world she will ever get all of the things done. She has a short list in her hand of the things that have been done since we last talked with her.....She starts to mumble quietly to herself...

Ok, let's see....

Got the herbals drying; request for help posted, and Wen has accepted the use of the compound for the party.

This past week, I got the peanuts for Tusky; covered the beer after Tusky opened two kegs; costumes were transferred and gone over, boys are here waiting for the dung beetles, and the reed brooms have been made and delivered.

Yesterday, Perry arrived and is eating me out of house and home; Wen delivered the jewels for the stele; serving people were hired for the party; Lighthouse was finished; capstones on the Mastaba were set; the chaise lounges and other furniture was delivered and set up; and the mirrors were polished in anticipation of their being set up.

Today I need to get to Luxor for my dress fitting; hire jugglers and dancers; send the elephant blankets (silk) to the Lady Incontipatra; and somehow find a source of Aswan granite. The stele must be finished in time for the party!

OH, WOE is ME!!!!!

I sure wish Mouse and Angel Jahakemhotep would answer the messages I sent to them!

Ah, well, off to Luxor, then, to get the final fitting done for my dress......

She sits for a minute, and then sets the painting of the house she did up against a cup on the table, so her friends could see it when they came...

You got yourself a steal on those Corn Dogs!! Remember, they are best purchased in exhorbitant lengthy trades and consumed at the festivals known as "County Fairs" held in honor of the great Corn Gods of the northlands MRed and I inhabit. I'm from Wisconsin

I'm a C3 addict and have already pre-ordered Pharoah

Liz scurries off to pack up some extra food for Perry before he starts eating MRed's jugglers....let's see, 60 pounds of Innova, 2 dozen cans of mackeral, 2 gallons of yogurt, 2 dozen eggs, flax seed oil, multi-vitamins and a couple bags of cookies, that should do him for a while...

Ah, Gill:

Might you know where I can get a supply of Aswan granite? If not, how about a source of bartenders???? That is about all I need unless you have scorpions, snakes, or vultures in cages laying around???

Thanks much...
