“Parktown has a sewer, baker b., which makes it seem like it’s digging in. Chilbo is in for a battle [for Jeogeot].”

bb:

Interesting. Let’s return to that.

Hucka D. (repeating and emphasizing):

Battle… of… Jeogeot.

bb:

But Parktown is not evil, per se — obviously — it’s just a bit darker. Sewers and all.

Hucka D.:

Parktown can hide their armies down there for a surprise, sneak attack in case Chilbo invades. You don’t know the… (pause)

bb:

Hucka?

Sapphire:

Hi.

bb:

Hey Sapphire. Long time no talk.

Sapphire:

I’ve been re-writing the Norum play. “Regazeboed”… sequel.

bb:

Nice. Do you have movie offers yet (smiles)?

Sapphire:

Actually… (pause)

Hucka D.:

I’m back. Got stuck in a time warp.

bb (unfazed):

You were talking about the battle for Jeogeot.

Hucka D.:

And your heart. Your tiny, beating heart. Hasn’t Jeogeot broken your heart…

Sapphire (interrupting):

Shooting! (pause) Screams. (pause) Death… dying. Electrocution. Elevation. Emasculation. Ejac…

Hucka D. (interrupting in turn):

That’s enough. No sex in this blog.

Sapphire:

No. Nor in Chilbo. Good clean white fun.

Hucka D. (to Sapphire still):

I’ve heard there are whores in Parktown. On the edges next to the Welcome Center. Or maybe it’s horses.

Sapphire:

Baker needs to know the truth about Crow’s Foot, Huckie.

bb:

Hucky?

Sapphire (continuing):

He needs to begin to know about Hoofingstoof.

bb:

A horse?

Sapphire:

No. A hor… (pause)

Hucka D. (picking up):

A horrible thing will happen… if Chilbo and Parktown do not make peace with each other. The battle for Jeogeot will be for naught.

bb (picking up Hucka D.’s thoughts):

I don’t think Lily Tomlin has been to the Hanja Welcome Center and given out gummy bears.

Hucka D.:

Lily White Lily.

bb:

Tunnels! I saw a ghost.

Hucka D.:

Peter has been there. Peter is everywhere.

bb:

I kind of don’t doubt that, Hucka D. But not Peter Gabriel.

Hucka D.:

Yes. (pause) Cross of the Lamb.

Sapphire (reinforcing):

Peter Gabriel, yes.

bb:

The former lead man of Genesis.

Hucka D.:

Naked he was when he came here. Born at the Welcome Center near Parktown. Lillith — Lily — was with him. Munsters they called them. Abominations. LL was born.

bb (guessing):

So Lillith, this Lily, was hidden in the sewers, where she perhaps still lives.

Hucka D.;

That’s what the fight was over. Chilbo wanted — needed Lillith. Lily White.

bb:

They needed [more] monsters.

Hucka D.:

Yes. You bring them monsters; you make them happy.

bb:

How bout mobsters?

Hucka D. (not humored):

You think about this, baker b.

Sapphire:

Yes, you should. Play as if being there was correct and good and right.

Hucka D. (continuing again):

… instead of wrong. (pause) Lillith.

bb:

OK, thanks guys.

Hucka D.:

You’re welcome.

Sapphire:

Good night (blows kiss).

(Hucka D. also blows a kiss at baker b. and finally smiles. Hucka D. The Bee and Sapphire the Azure Queen hold hands and fade to black)

And what a sewer system! Baker is greeted by none other than Mr. Bean upon entering the array of tunnels, standing knee deep in the green, flowing sewage and with his pants rolled up to his thighs. Clever!

Nearby graffiti. More funny stuff. Good to see that the sewer makers have a keen sense of humor… always a handy quality when working with, you know, sewage and shut.

Quite a vast honeycomb of rooms lie off the south side of the first sewer tunnel Baker explores.

OMG… a ghost!

Quickly exiting the haunted catacombs and into the somewhat more lighted sewer tunnels, Baker soon runs across an armadillo. Armadillo? Must be a zoo runaway, he rationalizes.

And we’re already over 100 meters from Mr. Bean and the beginning of our subterranean journey beneath Parktown.

Side tunnel; more knee deep sewage.

Baker Bloch runs past a corpse. Faster, Baker, faster!

More graffiti. “Glurp was here?” Maybe a Parktown kid having a bit of fun. But what of the corpse?… not so funny. But in checking behind Baker Bloch today, Baker Blinker makes the discovery that it may not be a corpse but just a passed out drunk who has wet himself, bottle still in hand. Still gross, true, but not as much now. Drunk pisser… not so scary, then. Ha ha.

Egads. The Great Cornholio! And then while he’s staring at Beavis, a bat lights upon his back. Ick!

Baker thanking his lucky stars that he made it out of the sewer system and back into the light of day.

Want to see for yourself? Start here, then.

Biking across the Hanja Welcome Center sims once more, heading to Parktown this night.

The distant hills turn white in the light of the dawning sun. Interesting effect.

Parktown city limits. Right on the edge of Welcome Center property.

Baker first explores a bit north of the entrance sign above, taking in some of the more natural sites in Shiot..

… before entering back into the city through the Parktown Zoo, all within the same sim. Quite nice kinetic sculpture before Baker here, with two half-spheres rotating at different speeds inside a static half-sphere. Within the 3 fitted half-spheres is a stylized face, perhaps of an alien species and revealed in full only at certain times. Perhaps the Parktown blog mentions this sculpture as well… hafta check.

A manhole is in the middle of the turnaround in front of the south-facing statue. Baker knows from a previous trip that a sewer of some extent lies within, although he hasn’t explored it at any length until tonight. Down we go!
