Should this be reintroduced,? strikes Drapes as a very civilised way of settling disputes.
We would prolly be a much more polite society.
Drapes of course will be a professional second, one is good at loading pistols and such.
Getting up at 5am would be a pain in the arse though.

Yeh drapes , its something to be tried at the next Gatbash :) after 1 am :)

Draper, you are a cad and a bounder.

What are you going to do about it?

Ones seconds shall call at Rapter towers on the morrow.
One suggests you settle your affairs with all haste. :(

Right then, champagne bottles at twenty paces it it! :D
Sounds like an interesting way to amuse the crowd at GatBash :D

A paintball duel could be quite amusing.....

27th Oct 2002, 07:22
now that is quite a neat idea .... all for one or one for all?

Me wonders why Drapes brings this up.... :D

Since duels are traditionally held in the contest over a maiden, I put Brocken and myself forward for that position. Does this mean we have to wear heaving bossom inducing corsets to the Gatbash?

Many a cowardly knave has fallen motionless at the feet of a vengeful and mercilless Tricky Woo.

You can insult his family, and flirt openly with his women, but never, ever, try to speak to him before 10:00am in the morning, or failing that, until after his first coffee.

" Choose your weapons - swords, or pistols ? "

" I choose swords "

" Good! I choose pistols ! "

"Behind the cathedral at six!"

I recall that being said somewhere in film or literature by some silly European or another.

Here in Oz you generally have to travel a long way to any of our few cathedrals (and those few tend to need repairs to the steeple or spire or chimney or whatever that thing with altitude is called).

Not only that but also we have such a variety of time zones even among states sharing the same longitude that it's hard to remember which watch to trust of the three one is wearing.

Consequently, half of our dualists arrive late and after the other half have given up all interest and gone home to light the barbecue buying the ice on the way.

Oz civilizes the world yet again.:D

Rent "The Duelists" sometime. Harvey Keitel and Keith Carrodine. Powerful film.

I'm confused... where exactly do banjos come into the whole procedure? :confused:

Well, it's a pprune bash, so we need an appropriate soundtrack, and, well, it's hard to take a banjo seriously so it's perfect :D
