New urchin in town

Hello there! I’m new! (I hope this is the right place to post this, by the way).

I’ve been in and out of SL for 6 years, due to a somewhat sporadic internet connection. Whenever I come back, I seem to land in New Babbage for some reason, and as this time it seems I might be able to stick around for a while… I’ve decided to finally do what I’ve wanted to do for a long time: rp a street urchin!

I’ve met the urchins at the Abandoned Factory on Sunday, and had my first roleplay with Arnold and Tepic on Wednesday, who were very patient with me. It exhausted me, but it was really fun! I then went to the Krampus party yesterday. It was great to see people I’d only read about a few hours before on the ning!

So meet Wilde, little automaton in denial. If you don’t notice straight away that he’s not just a normal boy, that’s fine, as he’s completely unaware of it. Having lived a sheltered life until recently, he’s still a bit of an innocent. Well he’s naive, really. That might not last…





Spread the love

      Thank you for the offer… I think… /me eyes Avariel warily.

      Anyway, another evening in Babbage… I’ve met more people. I like it here!

    Welcome to New Babbage, Wilde.

    If you’re able to see over the bar, you’re welcome to drink at the Gangplank, free of charge.  If you aren’t tall enough for liquor, well, we have cocoa too.

    Come see us sometime and say hello!

      All urchins are tall enough for liquor, didn’t anyone tell you? XD


      Anyways… Welcome ter Babbage!

      • Wilde Tomcat Wilde Tomcat December 8, 2012

        I’m tall enough when I stand on a crate! 

        Thanks! :-)

    Welcome to New Babbage!

    Don’t drink the canal water, don’t stare into Mr Tenk’s eyes and don’t trust anything Emerson Lighthouse says.

    • Emerson Lighthouse Emerson Lighthouse December 8, 2012

      Psst, kid, you want a job?

    • Wilde Tomcat Wilde Tomcat December 8, 2012

      Thank you for the warnings, Sir. I’ll do my best not to fall in the canals more than once a week.

  5. Mr. Arnold Mr. Arnold December 8, 2012

    One more piece of advice Wilde…Never take a job from Emerson.

    • Emerson Lighthouse Emerson Lighthouse December 8, 2012

      I had to fire Arnold once, Master Wilde, he is still clearly a little bitter over it.


      • Wilde Tomcat Wilde Tomcat December 8, 2012

        I might just pass on your very kind job offer for now… hmm you know, with the snow an’all, I’ve got cold fingers and would be no good in any sort of employment, now would I?

      • Mr. Arnold Mr. Arnold December 8, 2012

        As Victor told you Wilde, don’t believe everything Emerson says.

    Welcome, Wilde! Good to meet you. And if you’re ever injured or sick, the hospital may not be there anymore, but I can still take care of people. My home is open to urchins to drop in to warm up or for a snack now and then as well in the winter.
