    The Thargoid and Fer-de-Lance



    Good evening and welcome to the Thargoid and Fer-de-Lance.

    We are finally open! I've been planning this for ages, the paint is hardly dry and we've just had a delivery of Jameson's. We are still short of chairs, but you might appreciate the chance to stretch those space-weary legs. My thanks to Mobius for the lovely new sign.

    I am Garthyre your hostess. My staff and I are here to make you feel at home.

    This is the place for news, views and chat. Come here if you want to share something, but don't feel it right to start a whole thread.

    For instance:

    Did anyone see the fleeting glimpse of @DavidBraben on Click during Kate Russell's Webscape segment, yesterday?

    Not worth a thread, but definitely worth a mention.

    This is also the home for memes:

    I have an extensive library of books for you to borrow to help pass the time on those long explorations, but please feel free to add your own if you think they'll be read by my discerning clientele. New just in:

    Time Enough for Lave
    The Krait With The Dragon Paintjob
    The Coriolis Vacancy

    While everyone is welcome, I may suggest that some discussions deserve spinning off into their own thread. This isn't the same as asking you to take it outside, just that some ideas deserve more room.

    Also, please let us all know about your achievements and promotions. It's a big galaxy out there - if you have done something you're especially proud of, this is where you will find an interested audience. So if you have finally lost your Harmless status or if you have just attained Dangerous, we want to hear about it.

    Yes, I do plan to still be open in 13 months time. And beyond.

    We're pretty informal here, just order a drink when you come in and make yourself at home. Just don't sit in Sheldon's spot.

    The Wall of Elite: Dangerous Commanders

    Greetings, & I'll like to order a pan galactic gargle blaster please, hold the lemon! Also I have a book for you; 'The (Imperial)Empire Strikes back!', & 'Stars in their eyes' by 4T Airlock.... Long live the Empire.....

    Before I can serve you a pan-galactic gargle blaster, I need to see proof of age (35+). Also you need to be single under Barnard's Star licensing laws. It's one of the things you say goodbye to when you get married.

    You look about 14. Have a lemonade.

    Got any dark corners for me to sit in and nurse a pint or two? Got nothing much to do until the new forums open up tomorrow. Hope you're open 24/7?

    You can do that. There's a 4-dimensional pool table over there that could keep you occupied for a few hours. You have to pay for any balls you lose, though.

    Commander Didfool enters the place and asks for a Lave Martini. I know they're weak, but I'm a better shot when I'm sober. I'll stick to the bar in the light, just to make myself notorious and then prey on those who thought I'd be easy to kill >:·D

    My ship's out of action for refitting and I'm feeling homesick and nostalgic for my old home on dull Orerve -- sure I wanted adventure but we all need the occasional break from excitement, right? But this seems like a friendly place. I'll take whatever passes for a pint of ale, a newspaper and a board game in these parts.

    You don't by any chance have Eccentrica Gallumbits on your payroll? I bumped into her on Eroticon 6 and she mentioned she "worked" here
