A world in 13 items. A very soothing exercise by way of Archon Smarchon, who further gestures to its origins.
- Tartan patch. Too small for a toga, but a bath towel, rucksack, picnic blanket, shawl or very fetching kilt
- Reel of tape. It's sticky, it's strong, it has a thousand and one uses.
- Flashbulb helmet. Works great on rats and roaches.
- Spring boots. Five minutes winding for one extremely unpredictable bound.
- Harpoon and winch. Clockwork gearings and polymer line ideal for climbing, hauling, whaling, skyfighting and more.
- Snail harness. Lots of nasty little barbs to stop it withdrawing.
- Pin rapier. Could be used for sewing, as well as swordfighting.
- Bug-in-a-box. A terrifying fire giant painted on the front, but the bug appears to be sleeping.
- Baked bean(s). The old beans used to take two hands to lift, but these new canned ones look like... small beans.
- Thimbleful of milk. It's as rich, creamy, heavy, heady, soporific as all the stories
- A brick of snuff, and a tiny, beautiful tin knife with which to cut and crush it.
- Elegant brushes of human hair, and stolen paints.
- Ampoule of perfume. Barely larger than you are, blessedly easy to carry but enough for a town.
Wow that blog post is pretty cool but I really want to know more about all this home inspection business. Can you do a blog post about home inspections perhaps?ReplyDelete
I'm starting to suspect that this post is an elaborate scheme to develop a collection of spam comments.ReplyDelete
