First of all I wanted to say that I started coming here a while back and it's been of amazing help to me personally having the island to visit. I felt the need to say thank you for that. I know most of you don't know me. I rarely talk. That's just me. I am shy and I rp that because that's the only social behavior I really know other than awkward quietness followed by occasional blurting. I've had pretty terrible depression for a few years and while I play a lot of video games, and one MMO pretty religiously, this is the place I go recently when things are really bad. I am grateful. I hope the island continues to prosper and even have hopes that it will grow more in terms of character and dialogue choices. I love choice.
Anyway, thanks.

post script ~ Can anyone explain what happened in this fight to me? lol I mean I get that the Scot got off the first round and one-shotted me but... I still feel like I missed something.

I've always felt like the Drunken Scotsman is just that.

Really drunk, and really REALLY happy to be um...well... to put it lightly... um... using you as a portable loo?

Other than that... I have no bloody clue. Anyone else?

First, Snow, great name Wink

As far as the monster - It is a reference to the song 'The Scotsman' originally by Mike Cross, but the most popular version is a cover by Bryan Bowers.

Here are the lyrics, which should explain a lot!

Well a Scotsman clad in kilt left a bar on evening fair
And one could tell by how we walked that he drunk more than his share
He fumbled round until he could no longer keep his feet
Then he stumbled off into the grass to sleep beside the street
Ring ding diddle diddle I de oh ring di diddly I oh
He stumbled off into the grass to sleep beside the street

About that time two young and lovely girls just happend by
And one says to the other with a twinkle in her eye
See yon sleeping Scotsman so strong and handsome built
I wonder if it's true what they don't wear beneath the kilt
Ring ding diddle diddle I de oh ring di diddly I oh
I wonder if it's true what they don't wear beneath the kilt

They crept up on that sleeping Scotsman quiet as could be
Lifted up his kilt about an inch so they could see
And there behold, for them to see, beneath his Scottish skirt
Was nothing more than God had graced him with upon his birth
Ring ding diddle diddle I de oh ring di diddly I oh
Was nothing more than God had graced him with upon his birth

They marveled for a moment, then one said we must be gone
Let's leave a present for our friend, before we move along
As a gift they left a blue silk ribbon, tied into a bow
Around the bonnie star, the Scots kilt did lift and show
Ring ding diddle diddle I de oh ring di diddly I oh
Around the bonnie star, the Scots kilt did lift and show

Now the Scotsman woke to nature's call and stumbled towards a tree
Behind a bush, he lift his kilt and gawks at what he sees
And in a startled voice he says to what's before his eyes.
O lad I don't know where you been but I see you won first prize
Ring ding diddle diddle I de oh ring di diddly I oh
O lad I don't know where you been but I see you won first prize

It's a very good question. Even after you know about the reference, it still seems like something really must have been omitted from the account of this particular battle! Exactly which body part performed the strong attack? And, um... how? What precisely happened between that point, and the girlish giggling?

Filling it in with one's imagination leads to... er. Interestingly improbable scenarios.

On a personal level, let me just say that I too am immensely grateful to the Island for existing, and to CMJ for creating it. It has changed my life for the better in more ways than I can count.

yes to all the things.
And I do love the poem. I had read it before but that audio version is quite nice.

And Count Sessine, if you are implying that he knocked me out with his um..caber... then... I guess I was the one doing the giggling and the mystery is solved. :O
