I went to visit the Old Pond Pub last night while nothing was happening within m3 Corp or the EON Frigate Tournament participants. My Neocom was recording...

[ 2011.04.17 18:31:11 ] EVE System > Channel MOTD: The sign outside reads the "Old Pond Pub". There's a picture of someone being ducked into a pond with a ducking stool. As you enter the run-down wood-panelled bar, the stench of stale carpets, tobacco and weapons-fire is overwhelming. A holoscreen showing re-runs of old comedies flickers in the corner. Back issues of Freebooted magazine have been used to mop up spillages.The bar has been extended into the property next-door where the room opens out into a large planck-field generated area containing red-lit booths, catwalks and poles and a dance-floor, The decor has a Minmatar Hurricane theme. A few prostitutes and exotic dancers wander amongst the clientelle of militants, escaped prisoners and bemused tourists.Bartender Droid > GREETINGS CAPSULEER, MAY I OFFER YOU A BEVERAGE, A SNACK OR -bzzzt- A PUNCH IN THE FACE?

[ 2011.04.17 18:58:29 ] Seismic Stan > /emote drops a pin.

[ 2011.04.17 18:58:42 ] noise > shhh

[ 2011.04.17 18:59:01 ] Seismic Stan > Sorry.

[ 2011.04.17 18:59:59 ] noise > And why is there a bar in the library?

[ 2011.04.17 19:00:07 ] noise > and where are all the books?

[ 2011.04.17 19:00:54 ] Seismic Stan > They're holding up the broken furniture.

[ 2011.04.17 19:02:22 ] noise > /emote picks up a book. *table falls over*

[ 2011.04.17 19:03:19 ] noise > I see. So I can either sit at a table or read? Not both!

[ 2011.04.17 19:03:55 ] Seismic Stan > No. If you're reading, you can do it outside. You'll bring the place into repute.

[ 2011.04.17 19:04:20 ] noise > /emote throws book on the floor.

[ 2011.04.17 19:04:41 ] noise > right. I'll have white wine please.

[ 2011.04.17 19:05:12 ] Seismic Stan > /emote covers his face in despair.

[ 2011.04.17 19:05:28 ] Seismic Stan > Rum-flavoured 'white wine' okay?

[ 2011.04.17 19:06:02 ] noise > It sure is. That was a test and you passed.

[ 2011.04.17 19:06:24 ] noise > /emote pushed a slumped body out of a chair and sits down

[ 2011.04.17 19:07:26 ] Seismic Stan > /emote points to the bar-droid.

[ 2011.04.17 19:07:31 ] Seismic Stan > He does the drinks around here.

[ 2011.04.17 19:07:34 ] Craftsman 074 > quietly un-cocks his molecular stripper and puts it back in its holster

[ 2011.04.17 19:08:13 ] Agent Smitty > Lotsa people in here.

[ 2011.04.17 19:09:32 ] noise > /emote walks over to the bar

[ 2011.04.17 19:09:55 ] noise > Rum please good. erm. sir.

[ 2011.04.17 19:10:42 ] Seismic Stan > /emote holds his breath and braces, only relaxing when the droid begins pouring the drink.

[ 2011.04.17 19:11:08 ] noise > Thank you.

[ 2011.04.17 19:11:22 ] noise > /emote walks back over to the chair and sits down.

[ 2011.04.17 19:11:24 ] Seismic Stan > Sometimes his logic circuits go a bit screwy when people ask him stuff. He doesn't always give exactly what is asked for.

[ 2011.04.17 19:11:38 ] noise > /emote sniffs the glass

[ 2011.04.17 19:12:03 ] noise > smells vile!

[ 2011.04.17 19:12:15 ] Seismic Stan > S'okay, if there's fluid in the glass, it'll be what you ordered. But sometimes the glass ends up in the customer.

[ 2011.04.17 19:12:39 ] Seismic Stan > We could get him fixed, but sometimes, it's funny.

[ 2011.04.17 19:13:02 ] Teh Smit > I thought I fixed him.

[ 2011.04.17 19:13:10 ] noise > I guess that might account for some of the glass on the floor then?

[ 2011.04.17 19:13:16 ] Teh Smit > Oh, wait, I made him worse.  That's right.

[ 2011.04.17 19:15:22 ] Seismic Stan > /emote 's commlink bleeps.

[ 2011.04.17 19:15:30 ] Seismic Stan > 'Scuse me, I've got to take this.

[ 2011.04.17 19:15:33 ] Seismic Stan > /emote steps into the kitchen.

[ 2011.04.17 19:18:03 ] noise > /emote takes out a data pad and starts flicking through something labelled 'twitter'

[ 2011.04.17 19:18:34 ] Kalaratiri > /emote raises her eyebrows as she comes in > What with the glass on the floor?

[ 2011.04.17 19:19:27 ] noise > /emote points at Teh Smit

[ 2011.04.17 19:20:48 ] Kalaratiri > /emote grins > And what has smit done to put glass all over the floor? Playing darts with beer bottles?

[ 2011.04.17 19:20:51 ] Teh Smit > Oi, what'cha pointin' at me for?

[ 2011.04.17 19:21:14 ] noise > You said that you broke the droid!

[ 2011.04.17 19:21:55 ] Craftsman 074 > /emote slides gently under the table.

[ 2011.04.17 19:22:22 ] Teh Smit > No, see, I altered the droid a while back.

[ 2011.04.17 19:22:38 ] Teh Smit > It was an effort to make it work better.

[ 2011.04.17 19:22:49 ] Teh Smit > Ended up sending it on a killing spree.

[ 2011.04.17 19:23:01 ] Teh Smit > Hasn't quite been the same since, even though I keep trying to fix it.

[ 2011.04.17 19:23:19 ] noise > Congratulations on that engineering feat.

[ 2011.04.17 19:23:24 ] noise > So. What IS with all the glass on the floor then?

[ 2011.04.17 19:23:47 ] Teh Smit > I'm just assuming that Stan got into a row with Greenbeard or something and someone threw a mug.

[ 2011.04.17 19:24:08 ] noise > That normal round here then?

[ 2011.04.17 19:24:18 ] Teh Smit > Somewhat.

[ 2011.04.17 19:24:25 ] Teh Smit > You don't get Stan mad.

[ 2011.04.17 19:24:39 ] Teh Smit > Last time that happened, someone ended up being integrated into the kitchen.

[ 2011.04.17 19:24:39 ] Craftsman 074 > Normal???? Here?????

[ 2011.04.17 19:26:17 ] noise > Typical Brutor then?

[ 2011.04.17 19:26:47 ] Kalaratiri > Oh, I don't know. I know some very nice brutor

[ 2011.04.17 19:27:03 ] Vsmit > Hey, I take offense to that.

[ 2011.04.17 19:27:03 ] Kalaratiri > and some rather scary sebiestor

[ 2011.04.17 19:27:27 ] noise > hey. Vsmit. I didn;t say YOU were a typical Brutor!

[ 2011.04.17 19:27:30 ] Teh Smit > Yeah, Long Jack's a pretty scary Sebiestor.

[ 2011.04.17 19:30:05 ] noise > /emote stares at the bar-droid.

[ 2011.04.17 19:30:29 ] noise > Why has the droid got a chair leg wedged into it's side?

[ 2011.04.17 19:31:05 ] Teh Smit > Huh.  Never noticed that before.

[ 2011.04.17 19:32:15 ] noise > /emote walks over to the droid and yanks at the chair leg.

[ 2011.04.17 19:32:40 ] noise > *Sparks fly from the bar-droid*

[ 2011.04.17 19:32:51 ] noise > erm. You might want to look at that!

[ 2011.04.17 19:33:05 ] noise > /emote walks away from the sparking droid.

[ 2011.04.17 19:33:49 ] Teh Smit > I'll check on it later.

[ 2011.04.17 19:34:01 ] Teh Smit > I'm sure it's fine.

[ 2011.04.17 19:35:17 ] Kalaratiri > /emote smirks and shakes her head > Technical people you lot

[ 2011.04.17 19:36:11 ] Teh Smit > I didn't build it.

[ 2011.04.17 19:36:17 ] Teh Smit > I just screw with the programming.

[ 2011.04.17 19:36:29 ] noise > /emote mumbles 'I could fix it if I wanted to'

[ 2011.04.17 19:37:17 ] Teh Smit > And why don't you want to?

[ 2011.04.17 19:37:50 ] noise > I left my toolkit in my other jacket.

[ 2011.04.17 19:38:01 ] Craftsman 074 > /emote orders a large rum from the droid.

[ 2011.04.17 19:38:36 ] Teh Smit > *The droid sputters a bit and puches Craftsman 074.

[ 2011.04.17 19:38:40 ] Teh Smit > **

[ 2011.04.17 19:38:42 ] Seismic Stan > /emote enters from the kitchen just in time to see the bar droid take a viscous swing at Craftsman.

[ 2011.04.17 19:39:07 ] Seismic Stan > Aaw, not again.

[ 2011.04.17 19:39:16 ] Seismic Stan > /emote goes back into the kitchen hurriedly.

[ 2011.04.17 19:39:17 ] Kalaratiri > /emote hurridly heads for the far wall to get away from the droid

[ 2011.04.17 19:39:25 ] Craftsman 074 > /emote screams as a stray spark from the droid ignites the rum.

[ 2011.04.17 19:39:52 ] noise > /emote stares at his empty glass and decides that he doesn't want another rum just yet!

[ 2011.04.17 19:40:08 ] Craftsman 074 > /emote throws the rum on the floor where it sets fire to.........everything.

[ 2011.04.17 19:40:42 ] noise > /emote hurridly walks over to the other side of the room

[ 2011.04.17 19:40:58 ] Seismic Stan > /emote peers out from the kitchen, then disappears from view momentarily before a fire extuinguisher is hurled through the doorway into the bar.

[ 2011.04.17 19:41:10 ] Craftsman 074 > /emote runs out the door asking for a refund

[ 2011.04.17 19:41:15 ] Seismic Stan > Somebody see to that. (from the kitchen)

[ 2011.04.17 19:41:28 ] noise > /emote stares at the fire extinguisher surrounded by flames

[ 2011.04.17 19:41:50 ] noise > Err. Teh Smit, you want to get that?

[ 2011.04.17 19:42:14 ] noise > /emote looks around for Teh Smit

[ 2011.04.17 19:42:21 ] Teh Smit > Nah, it'll be fine.

[ 2011.04.17 19:42:53 ] Kalaratiri > /emote sighs before jumping onto the top of a table and running across it, bridging the flames. She then grabs the fine extinguisher and makes a path through to noise > Here you go *she says sweetly*

[ 2011.04.17 19:43:15 ] noise > /emote takes the fire extinguisher.

[ 2011.04.17 19:43:16 ] Craftsman 074 > Bad news Stan. I called the fire section, but it appears you haven't paid this month's installment on your "insurance"

[ 2011.04.17 19:43:28 ] noise > Erm. Thanks for that

[ 2011.04.17 19:44:12 ] Kalaratiri > Your welcome *grins* Now go put that fire out before craftsman starts throwing gin at it

[ 2011.04.17 19:44:47 ] noise > /emote walks over to where the large fire is and activates the fire extinguisher.

[ 2011.04.17 19:45:01 ] noise > It doesn't work!

[ 2011.04.17 19:45:02 ] Craftsman 074 > Ha! the gin you get in here wouldn't burn anyway.

[ 2011.04.17 19:45:39 ] Craftsman 074 > /emote sticks a sausage on a stick and starts to cook it.

[ 2011.04.17 19:45:45 ] noise > /emote hits the fire extinguisher

[ 2011.04.17 19:46:18 ] Kalaratiri > /emote calls to the kitchen > Stan, how old is your fire extinguisher? and Craftsman, where the hell did you get that sausage

[ 2011.04.17 19:46:46 ] Craftsman 074 > In my pocket, if you want , I'll find one for you.

[ 2011.04.17 19:46:47 ] Teh Smit > Where's Merinne?  Her stuff could take care of this fire, easy.

[ 2011.04.17 19:46:51 ] noise > /emote hits the fire extinguisher on the floor.

[ 2011.04.17 19:47:13 ] Teh Smit > Granted, it would also take care of the floor, but that's beside the point.

[ 2011.04.17 19:47:50 ] noise > /emote throws the fire extinguisher on the floor and walks towards Kalaratiri

[ 2011.04.17 19:48:32 ] noise > /emote takes out his pistol and aims at the fire extinguisher

[ 2011.04.17 19:48:58 ] Kalaratiri > /emote moves behind noise

[ 2011.04.17 19:49:29 ] Craftsman 074 > /emote munches his sausage.

[ 2011.04.17 19:50:01 ] noise > /emote fires his pistol and hits the fire extinguisher. Fluid and gas gush out of the canister. The fire doesn't go out.

[ 2011.04.17 19:50:12 ] Craftsman 074 > Hehe.

[ 2011.04.17 19:50:25 ] noise > well. That plan didn't work!

[ 2011.04.17 19:51:18 ] noise > /emote shouts into the kitchen. Erm. Guy. Stan. You got any more fire extinguishers?

[ 2011.04.17 19:51:57 ] Kalaratiri > /emote looks around the room, before grinning and grabbing noise's pistol. She walks over towards the fire and takes careful aim. She fires, and the bullet lodges in a pipe > ...What are the pipes round here made of?! Tungsten?!

[ 2011.04.17 19:52:49 ] Teh Smit > This place is kind of dodgy, though, so I don't think Tungsten is something Stan could afford.

[ 2011.04.17 19:53:05 ] Craftsman 074 > /emote notices it's a gas pipe.

[ 2011.04.17 19:53:32 ] Craftsman 074 > /emote backs away a few yards.

[ 2011.04.17 19:53:34 ] Vsmit > Man, you guys are going to blow up the bar again.

[ 2011.04.17 19:53:41 ] noise > /emote steps back a few paces

[ 2011.04.17 19:53:58 ] Craftsman 074 > Errr, Stan.

[ 2011.04.17 19:54:20 ] noise > What is he doing in there anyway?

[ 2011.04.17 19:54:26 ] Craftsman 074 > You might want to step out here.

[ 2011.04.17 19:54:30 ] Kalaratiri > /emote looks embarrased > I though it was a water pipe

[ 2011.04.17 19:55:21 ] Craftsman 074 > Oh Staaaaan.

[ 2011.04.17 19:55:26 ] noise > Well, the fire is spreading to the entrance. Now we're trapped!

[ 2011.04.17 19:55:37 ] Craftsman 074 > We???

[ 2011.04.17 19:56:14 ] Seismic Stan > /emote rushes out of the kitchen with a corpse over his shoulder, bounds over the bar and drops the cadaver onto the centre of the flames.

[ 2011.04.17 19:56:28 ] Vsmit > Is that Feilx10?

[ 2011.04.17 19:56:36 ] Seismic Stan > /emote looks pleased with himself.

[ 2011.04.17 19:56:42 ] Seismic Stan > I knew he'd come in handy eventually.

[ 2011.04.17 19:56:50 ] Craftsman 074 > Roast meat tomorrow....Yay!!

[ 2011.04.17 19:56:54 ] Vsmit > Sweet.

[ 2011.04.17 19:57:14 ] Seismic Stan > /emote rushes back behind the bar and starts belt-feeding beercans from the fridges.

[ 2011.04.17 19:57:18 ] Kalaratiri > /emote blinks > Erm... Who...? Whatt..?

[ 2011.04.17 19:57:27 ] noise > /emote whispers to Kalaratiri > why was there a corpse in the kitchen?

[ 2011.04.17 19:57:36 ] Craftsman 074 > /emote calls "Form a line"

[ 2011.04.17 19:57:46 ] Seismic Stan > He blew up my Orca. He had to pay.

[ 2011.04.17 19:57:58 ] noise > Ah. OK then.

[ 2011.04.17 19:58:09 ] Seismic Stan > To be fair, I never intended for him to die, but I forgot he was in there.

[ 2011.04.17 19:58:13 ] Vsmit > That was an interesting night, to be sure.

[ 2011.04.17 19:58:33 ] Craftsman 074 > Stan, Stan, he's starting to burn,.......turn him over.

[ 2011.04.17 19:58:50 ] Seismic Stan > /emote pours beer onto the flames and hands four-apcks out to folk as he chats.

[ 2011.04.17 19:58:51 ] Teh Smit > /emote pokes the corpse with a long pole, rolling him over.

[ 2011.04.17 19:59:10 ] noise > /emote takes the beer

[ 2011.04.17 19:59:13 ] noise > Thanks!

[ 2011.04.17 19:59:22 ] Craftsman 074 > Mmmmmm, smells like chicken.

[ 2011.04.17 19:59:44 ] noise > That's one big-ass chicken!

[ 2011.04.17 19:59:54 ] Craftsman 074 > Save the rum Stan.

[ 2011.04.17 20:00:16 ] Seismic Stan > Push him around with that pole would you, might as well use him to clear up the broken glass too.

[ 2011.04.17 20:01:06 ] Teh Smit > /emote hands the pole to noise > Get to it, then.

[ 2011.04.17 20:01:15 ] Craftsman 074 > /emote notices that the floorboards add a touch of smokiness to the "meat"

[ 2011.04.17 20:01:19 ] Seismic Stan > The fire seems to be under control and the droid hasn't killed everyone in the room, so must be time for a drink.

[ 2011.04.17 20:01:39 ] noise > /emote takes the pole and pokes the head of the corpse

[ 2011.04.17 20:01:59 ] Seismic Stan > /emote approaches the bar-droid, asks for a round of rum for everyone and is knocked out cold by a robotic upper-cut.

[ 2011.04.17 20:02:54 ] Kalaratiri > /emote is staying well away from both the corpse and the bar droid

[ 2011.04.17 20:02:55 ] noise > /emote sees the bar-droid start throwing glasses around at people

[ 2011.04.17 20:03:00 ] Craftsman 074 > /emote takes the opportunity to steal some rum from behind the bar.

[ 2011.04.17 20:03:35 ] noise > /emote tries to use the pole to deflect the incomming glass but fails miserably and gets a glass to the head.

[ 2011.04.17 20:03:40 ] noise > Oww.

[ 2011.04.17 20:03:50 ] Teh Smit > /emote clonks Craftsman 074 on the back of the head for trying to steal rum.

[ 2011.04.17 20:04:36 ] Craftsman 074 > /emote falls gently into oblivion.

[ 2011.04.17 20:04:37 ] Teh Smit > /emote walks over to the Droid, opens up a panel on its back, presses a few buttons, beats on its head a bit, and the droid stops throwing things.

[ 2011.04.17 20:05:31 ] noise > /emote stands ready with books in each hand ready to throw them at the bar-droid and stared at Teh Smit > you sure it's fixed this time?

[ 2011.04.17 20:05:38 ] Teh Smit > No.

[ 2011.04.17 20:06:08 ] Teh Smit > There's this weird blinking red light, though.  I'm sure it's fine.

[ 2011.04.17 20:06:24 ] noise > Why is the red light flashing faster?

[ 2011.04.17 20:06:28 ] Kalaratiri > /emote realises she is still holding the gun and shoots the bar droid. It 'clunks' and falls over

[ 2011.04.17 20:07:17 ] Craftsman 074 > /emote screams as the droid breaks his leg.

[ 2011.04.17 20:07:34 ] noise > Hey watch out! *the bar-droid rolls over onto Teh Smit*

[ 2011.04.17 20:08:00 ] Teh Smit > Oof.

[ 2011.04.17 20:08:02 ] Teh Smit > Thanks.

[ 2011.04.17 20:08:23 ] Teh Smit > /emote pushes the droid off onto the floor.

[ 2011.04.17 20:08:35 ] Kalaratiri > /emote giggles and shoots it some more

[ 2011.04.17 20:08:50 ] Teh Smit > /emote goes into the kitchen and returns with a bucket of water, which is promptly thrown on Stan's face.

[ 2011.04.17 20:08:56 ] Teh Smit > Wake up.

[ 2011.04.17 20:09:19 ] noise > /emote walks over to Kalaratiri and puts a hand on the gun.

[ 2011.04.17 20:09:28 ] noise > How about I take this back?

[ 2011.04.17 20:09:46 ] Seismic Stan > !?

[ 2011.04.17 20:09:55 ] Kalaratiri > /emote clutches the gun > I feel safer with it

A damn fine night out at the Old Pond.

Indeed. Keep coming 'round. We'll be here.

It's curious that every time one of these impromptu 'good nights' take place, the bar ends up getting trashed. Previously we've had a firebombing, a battleship autocannon strike on the toilets and one night someone drove a Hurricane into the station, wiping out the brothel next door.I'm mean, honestly, I'm going to have to find somewhere a bit safer to go for a quiet drink.

So it sounds like a roasted corpse rates pretty low on the meter! I'll be back. It might smell off but the rum tastes nice.

We had a good run once where Mike brought out a chocolate fountain and tried to bring some class to the place.
