There was... but it died due to lack of activity two or three years ago. Sad


Cheers!

Found it now:
brassgoggles.org/forum/index.php/topic,14462.msg700729.html#msg700729

But there is no REPLY Button, so I cannot revive that one.
Do you have a REPLY-Button in your spares box?

Wow... just had to stop in and check the old place out. Kind of dusty.

I guess that's good, not much in the way of down time for the Real BG lately. Still miss the original Clocktower, though. Haven't been keeping up much on the SP line IRL; Real Life (TM) gets in the way so much. Tried to start a local group last year, but it pretty much died on the vine. La Contessa and I were the only ones doing much for the group, everybody else was seemingly sitting on the sidelines, rooting occasionally, but not really there for it, if you take my meaning.

Well, I guess I will have my usual, then turn down the gaslights and leave the place to the echoes and the dust.


Cheers

Sounds reasonable.

The thing that made the Clocktower special, though, was that it was started in a time when not all clubs and groups had to be stuck in their own ghetto. We can try, but I won't get my hopes up.

....comes in, finds everything covered in a liberal amount of dust.
At least the bar is well stocked.

Picks up the key, winds up the barkeeper and gathers stuff to light a fire and put the kettle on.

it's curious in my mind that it never seems to occur to me to come here unless the main site goes down. In fact it looks very nearly that the last time I posted here, was a couple years ago in the midst of similar health problems.

maybe if things work out this time we could give the place a visit from time to time? a sort of less formal gather site.

*steps out of the broom closet*
Well, the secret entrances seem to be functionally sound. I haven't tried th' sewer yet, however. I don't suppose I could get someone else to handle that one, could I?

Barkeep, a pint of your best stout, if you will.

Capital idea, Mr. Rovingjack. I wonder if we can make it work...

*foul odour permeates the room, and then a dark figure in full body rubber suit and scuba gear emerges from the water closet*

We got that entrance covered mates Very Happy I guess I'll head to the showers...

*digs through his huge backpack, pulls out a contraption that looks like bits of a telescope, grandfather clock and shovel welded together. Holds it up*

Give me a few minutes to fire up the boiler and get the heating and warm water going.

*heads to the boiler room, stops, turns around*

No, this is the telescopic shovel #2. It now HAS limit switches. No need to be afraid......

Iīll go back to the boiler room.

*blows the dust off his armchair, sits down*

I wonder where the others are. They should be here already.

Did anyone inform the maitenance folks about the breakdown of the main Machine?
Seems like a fan belt slipped off.

*Takes a bottle of 50 yr old Whisky from behind the bar, sits by the fire and pours two generous amounts*

There you go, old chap. Smile
