WOW - the idea of the *pouch* just beats all.
I bet I could learn to do that!
Here's a ROUGH idea of the first part of my post.
I'll change it after I hear from you later.
Also - wherever I use your name as a NPC I'll link to your Yydryl thread so people can *see* more of what you do, who you are.
We found the Armor working at a bench, tools in one hand, a lit magnifying eyepiece hanging from his brow distorting one eye so it shone larger than
half the Rigellians face.
Chumley grunted an introduction between myself and Armour Denson, explaining I was a crew member in need of a weapon.
The quiet unimposing Rigellian who’s love for the weapons he created and cared for was evident in his every gesture lay a cloth over the piece
he’d been working, looked me up and down critically and started calling out names of weapons for Chumley to bring forward.
That the armour allowed Chumley to handle the weapons only proved Chumley's enthusiasm had won over the smaller Rigellians reluctance to allow
others to touch his weapons and though short on words the Armor’s patience was long.
Many times I grasp a weapon in the wrong manner or failed to understand all together what it was I was holding and whereas Chumley regaled us with a
continuous stream of snorts of derision and enthusiastic grunting whereas the Armour, ignoring Chumley all together, gently repositioned the weapon in
my hand and with gestures, not words, showed me the proper handling of each piece before me.
I’d no doubt his patience was born from a love of his weapons, not any enjoyment he might have found teaching a greenhorn proper techniques, but
my thanks was well received regardless.
Explaining to the Rigellian the core problem I was facing only took a moment.
He might be quiet but the Rigellian was long on understanding the problems of outfitting different types of beings.
My problem, which I went so far a to show Armor Deson (to Chumley's horror) was no matter what weapon I held it would drop to the ground as soon as I
morphed, as always right along with my clothes and headband.
Armour Deson's eyes lit up and he seemed to thrive on the challenge not be put off by it.
Again I wont post until I hear from you - especially because I wrote you in as a Rigellian and I have no idea if you are or not!
Thank you for letting us include you - where in my opinion - you belong!
Thanks again for the kanga pouch idea - I'm floored by it - very happy with it!
