After the intermission, we find our protagonists (but not the titular one, who is no longer invited or something) in The Land Of Sweets. Drosselmeyer introduces Clara to some folks and Clara recaps Act I for those who didn't bring wives. So the Sweetsians--I guess we can call them that--put Clara in a chair, and show her some dance routines.Please continue to his blog to read the rest of this excellent post wherein he savagely subverts ballet into a wonderful Discordian experience.
It's not clear why they do this, but I like to think that it's because they peg the girl as an experienced, accomplished regicide who enjoys the tacit protection of an eye patch-wearing badass planes-hopping spellcaster, so they decide to play things safe by keeping her entertained lest she start throwing footwear and the halls begin to echo with the ringing of blood-stained crowns striking the flagstones and THAT, my friends, is a pair of NPCs to use. We're still a gaming blog, after all.
After you perform your assignment, I want you to report back and tell me the following:
Simple, no? Now here's what you DON'T DO:
- What you did.
- How people reacted.
- How that made you feel.
Are we clear? Fabulous.
- DON'T do anything illegal, or encourage anyone to do so.
- DON'T mock people's beliefs.
- DON'T be a jackass. Making a fool of yourself is fine; making fools of other people is not.
