You have but one day to acquire, by means little short of outright theft, an even dozen of Dying Earth RPG
books (including the truly piquant Kaiin Player's Guide
) from the apparently careless, not to imply narcotic-benumbed, fingers of the +Bundle of Holding
. And of course, when I say "you," I refer to one of your many lackeys, hangers-on, toadies, or majors-domo, given that you a) would never stoop to engage in meaningless badinage somewhat contoured by the random hiccup of astragaloi, and b) being a person of some distinction (admittedly in your own slightly verdigrised circles, but still, distinction is where one can find it) you have surely already obtained these volumes at full price to decorate your bookshelf and proclaim to your very occasional literate guest your own status as a connoisseur of exemplary prose-ludography.
To point a) I offer this refutation: I have seen you so stoop, sir or madam as the case may be. To point b) thusly: but what if your occasionally, even sporadically, literate guest is so bold and so ill-mannered (but then the oaf does travel in circles demonstrably inferior even to your own, so perhaps his manners cannot be expected to attain the first or even second water, and I apologize unreservedly for judging his poor best against the standards of civilized gentlefolk) as to pick up your cathode-tablet and thumb through the offerings thereupon, neglecting to that end your carefully arranged bookshelf? Well, then, you shall yet win the day, for you shall have been perspicacious enough to obtain these fine, nay exemplary, volumes in electronic form thus dazzling the rube's eyes and establishing your bona fides even to his low ilk.
Q.E.D., then, querulous interlocutor. I believe yours is the next round.http://bundleofholding.com/index/current
