#359 Lord’s Delegate’s RoomMay 5, 2023
Das Attendant and Lordish Secretary walk into the room of Lord's Delegate. The room is lit only by three small windows. The floor is covered by huge piles of coins. A metal chute by the ceiling spews out more coins into the room.
Das Attendant: “Sorry to interrupt you, old fogies! We need to get paid for extra work!”
Das Attendant stands on a pile of money and looks around. Lordish Secretary has squatted down and is digging something out from the pile of coins.
Das Attendant: “Gosh, they sure have a lot of shine lying around. Shouldn’t this be in the bins?”
Lordish Secretary: “Eh wot, here’s why:”
Lordish Secretary holds up the skull of one of the members of the Delegate, to the shock of Das Attendant.
Lordish Secretary: “They dead.”
Das Attendant: “Old fogie Scarl!”
Stygian Lord says:
Alas, poor Scarl. The society will have to keep running without you.
As it has been for quite some time, in fact. The old fogies of the Delegate haven’t been in operation for a while.
