Visby is on the west coast of Gotland, but one could say that the entire island of Gotland is on the east coast of Sweden......

OK, I'll come up with something truly eastcoastal.

Where is Trumgottist btw? He knows the island best.

OK.
I'm pretty sure Trumgottist will approve of this.
The sun comig up over Grynge fiskeläge och strand.

Grynge is a beautiful place on the eastcoast. It used to be a small fishing harbour and it has a beach. I spent a week there last summer and enjoyed the nature and the sea.

so I think we have to come up with something east coast Gotland. East coast Sweden just isn't cutting it.

Is "Frasse" pronounced with two syllables? If so "Frasse and his Peas of Kejick" could work.

Well, my good man, there's a Strandpromenad in every town by the sea, so at that point it wasn't obvious to me it was Gotland we were refering to. It could just as well have been Stockholm where he (Trum) is right now.
Don't you approve of my Grynge poetry?

Well, I do say that, and I was serious. I was really looking forward to talking to you again, which also explains why I was so distressed to find my MSN not working.

Seriously, did I ever tell you how much you resemble Xan from Baldur's Gate? Always doom saying, and always pessimistic. I should come over and tickle you!

And like an elf, including Xan and Sand, you don't seem to smile enough!

Do I have to do this to you?:



(On a side note, it has been pointed out that elves have a habit of biting when you get too close to their mouths. I really hope you won't bite me, Tibsie, you're not an elf after all.)

That sounds painful. Why?
Well, because it's Tiffany. Cutting glass, and getting glass splinters. I'm working on making a stained glass version of my Crow drawing.

I remember him. Quite useful to have in your party but his character phrases were all so depressing.

In the end I preferred having Minsc who was completely insane but generally more positive.

Overall I think Rob is more positive than Xan. .
