Group Topic: Summer Movie

9_palms_21It all began when an employee of Nine Palms Retirement Community became exposed to the contents of a mysterious thermos confiscated by internal security forces. It ended when a number of Nine Palms residents escaped the community in a garden shed secretly modified with a few thousand helium party balloons. The aforementioned security forces were unable to prevent this as they were, at that time, pinned down by the aforementioned employee, encased in a flock of inexplicably vicious pigeons.

The Oracle of the Closet

Herbert Von Schapselhiemer

July 31st, 2009

seal_herbertNo one in the League is quite sure where he came from, or why Ophelia Himmle finds him so interesting. Not that these questions occupy them all that much, generally they only pay him enough attention to tell if he is going to try to blow anything up too close to their chairs during tea. They are fairly certain that he is quite mad, but don’t find that sufficient reason to look down their noses, particularly when they have the much more suitable excuses of his being theoretically younger and more male than they, already.

Emsworth Appleblight

July 24th, 2009

seal_emsworthEthmer’s younger brother and self-declared artificer of the league. He faithfully follows the traditions of the great umbrella-slingers of the West, though no one actually knows why. He also sports a close working relationship with Herbert Von Schnapsleheimer, who remains the only person to this day that never needed to ask what steam powered socks were for.

Ethmer Appleblight

July 24th, 2009

seal_ethmerResident avian enthusiast of the league, he keeps track of all the associated bird affairs, or at least does his best; he has a tendency to become distracted by his own personal projects at the oddest moments.

Lady Morlvera Cockroath

July 10th, 2009

Lady champion of defenestration, a title which Harriet Lycanthrope severely resents, she is Ophelia’s approximate right hand and the League’s most formidable warrior. It is, in fact, rumored that she received early training from none other than the suffragettes, though she has never expressed an opinion on the subject one way or another.
