    First of all, this is the entirety of the fluff blurb for ITS X.

    Second of all, that last sentence is... not proper English. I'd call it Spanglish except that means something different.

    You know that Shasvasti have stolen this half from the Teutonic fortress and escaped with a stealth craft, which was shot down over the jungel.
    I'm not a native speaker, therefore I didn't realize.

    Where is this stated? I don't read the fluff, just curious.

    The Shavaasti steal everything; it’s just how things are.

    Like the way your D&D games are continually de-railed by the Paladin player on some quest that no-one else knows anything about, and how the Rogue player says he’s ‘chaotic neutral’ but actually just means ‘an asshole’ :wink:

    Rogue? WTF is this crap? Proper D&D has Fighter, Cleric, Magic-User and Thief. And a few sub-classes of each.

    The shasvastii are the Kender of the Infinity milieu? Man, I did not like that Dragonlance stuff, or anything else from the Hickman's, except Ravenloft.

    Grognard? Moi? Bien sûr.

    We’re just de-railing an otherwise-irredeemable thread, Mike...

    For know this, Mike who is called The Scrivener: it is MY QUEST to derail any such whenever folk of this land may need light relief. And to those vile trolls who prey upon innocent By The Book players, I shall be a scourge. :smile:

    Is Mike the Scrivener related to Bartleby the Scrivener by any chance?

    Or would you prefer not to answer the question?

    Yes, it is. But I don't know why this makes my answer wrong. A fluff question answered with the correct reference. :wink:
