Tearna, it is the things which are special to Tam that will make this a proper tribute. So, I definitely think you should arrange things however needed so that you can tell part of this tale on 11/6.


Okay... I have finished the tale... at least a very good first version of it. There will be edits and polishing right up to the end while I'm pasting it in Poetical. haha

*sighs* I do so miss Tam's comments and input. The humorous touches were often his influence and he was always good with thoughts and ideas from a totally different angle.

At any rate, I'll go back to the original plan and open with the chapter from the Quickfoot Estates, and then do a flashback the following week for what happened with Bilwise. It isn't as ideal, but will work. I'll just need to do a good recap of chapter 1 between chapter 2 and 3. Happy

re: Ales & Tales for Tamoro

Avangrod,

There is definitely room. We have a large turnout, which is surprising to exactly no one because of the kind of guy Tam was. So, any of us may be "air-playing" on any number of songs. But of course, the point of being there isn't to be able to hit the Songbook buttons. Besides, there are some lovely larger numbers in the LMB library, and the high attendance will make them available to Lhinn and Byrcha.

I'm adding you to the list!

I didn't know Tam but would be honoured to play if there is enough room. Let me know.

If it's ok? We thought you'd never ask. Happy

Please sign me up for the 2nd set with the Old Winyards if that is at all possible. I would come sooner but work would get in the way. I am good to play for the 2nd set and to be there for our tribue to Tam.

Sonca, of course there is room - I was hoping you'd be able to! It is good to see you back.

Eilye, Put me down for OW if there is room. It would be an honor to perform in his memory. I have enough vacation time available that would otherwise go to waste so I can stay up as late as we can if anyone wants to.

re: Ales & Tales for Tamoro

It would be awesome if you can come, Gori!! Tam loved your interactive tales and spoke of them fondly on many occasions. Happy

And yes, great choice, Lhinn. Hallelujah was one of Tam's favorites... though he had so many. He loved music... and all things creative!! Happy

I've been working on a new tale, with Tam's help, over the past year or so. I have the beginning ready and a really good draft of the end, but rather got stuck in the middle. no comment I'm wondering if this might not be a good time to kick it off? The opening scenes are Tam and Tearna at home, receiving the news that Bilwise has gone missing. It's a great character sketch of Tam.

That will also force me to be diligent and finish. haha Let me know if you think that is too much, though.

EDIT: Looking back over the manuscript, I had originally started with Tam and Tea at home, but decided that in this case, it made more sense to start out with Bilwise rather than do a flashback. So, I'd probably want to do the intro the week prior? Or maybe just hold onto this for next year? Fall is always so very busy... decisions, decisions...

re: Ales & Tales for Tamoro

Hallelujah always reminds me of Tam, too. He always loved it when it was in the setlist and sang it so beautifully!

I've started the sheet on the alesandtales doc, so we can coordinate: https://docs.google.com/spreadsheets/d/1Uz2_Tiu4JKUeng6OyZz7iiWqTl-T4iZO5vfT3jdrlK4/edit#gid=1447699956

Dann,

If things do work out for you schedule-wise, it will be a pleasure to have you. One thing that was very striking in looking back through chat logs for "Tam-isms" was how animated and happy he was one night when Gori was telling a tale at Ales and Tales. So, your presence would be very meaningful!

Be well, and enjoy that cider.

re: Ales & Tales for Tamoro

Heya folks!

I will do what I can to make this. Real Life will be throwing a schedule change around or before November 6th. I'd like to perform as Gori with a tale of his (any requests?). Knowing Tam's gone is... still one hell of a downer. He wouldn't want us down for long though.

As Kaerri and I have done for the Tinkster and Godwineson, we'll be going by our favorite roleplaying and dining establishment (same place!) and getting a tall cool one in Tam's honor (Zombie Killer Hard Cider) and bringing the bottle home in his honor.

Honor and fun,
Gori a.k.a. Dann

No, I don't mind. Just no "Leave your hat on" though. hehe
