Re: We are up and going...

Good morning/afternoon, I hate to say this, but I am considering having to stop this bold experiment. I am working on writing my doctoral thesis this semester (deadlines and all that) plus a full time academic job, and I thought I could balance my time better. When posts/responses got to longer than...

Re: IC Day One, 11pm Meeting, Government House

Talbot looks at the other men in the room. He shuffles a few papers and then coughs clearing his throat. "Captain Strachan, your commanding officer has decided to detach you from the Bombay Light Cavalry for the moment. However, I am told that you are to be in charge of the small military detac...

Re: IC Day One, 11pm Meeting, Government House

Attempting to hide his relief at being able to return to the Oudh, Thomas is nevertheless unable to prevent a broad smile. "No questions, sir. Delighted to serve in whatever capacity required. Absolutely..." He clamps his teeth shut on what was about to be an embarrassing torrent of grati...

Re: IC Day One, 11pm Meeting, Government House

While the others talked Strachan thought of the possibilities. Detached duty would mean a lot of freedom, perhaps some extra monies. "No questions really sir, is there a clerk or someone else we should be liasing with regards the details of travel?" OOC:,Strachan is ( as am I) ass...

Re: IC Day One, 11pm Meeting, Government House

Once the introductions were finished, Secretary Talbot opened up a manila folder on his desk, unsealing the ribbon tying it closed. He peered up at everyone in the room. " Well it seems we have an interesting diversity here in this chamber, between experience and enthusiasm. At least one or two...

Re: IC Day One, 11pm Meeting, Government House

OOC,Sorry, didn't realise there was a new thread, just had email alerts on the old one! Thomas and Lovell make their way through Government House. If it wasn't for the impressive Sikh soldier at the end of the corridor, they could almost have been walking through any English country house. Ente...

Re: IC Day One, 11pm Meeting, Government House

Secretary Martins indicated that each of you should enter into the library where the meeting is going to be held. The room is dominated by a large picture of Queen Victoria behind an equally impressive wooden desk. Oddly enough, the desk is cleared of anything other than a few pages of foolscrap, an...

IC Day One, 11pm Meeting, Government House

Secretary Martins would check a small sheet of paper as each of you entered and then motion you to one side once your name was called out. "At 11 pm, your presence has been requested in the library on the 2nd floor by Secretary Talbot. It seems your meeting has been moved up. I am sorry for an...

Re: IC Day One, 1 January 1857

Arthur Dodson Dodson sips punch (no spirits in it to keep his head clear) in the faint breeze from the verandah, catching sight of Julia from time to time. He is happy to leave her entertainment to the younger set for now, but is ready to step in and rescue her, should she seem distressed. At any r...

Re: IC Day One, 1 January 1857

While Felicia is most appreciative of the attention, she is constantly being pulled away by other young gallants who don't seem to mind cutting in on Strachan's moments with the young lady. However, after a few dances, he will find Mrs. Dower waiting for another dance. If Strachan approaches, she w...
