History & Visitation: Hans Ulrich
Miriam Olufemi tried living a simple life, but she wanted nothing more than to get out of Luxor. Sure, Egypt was pleasant enough, but being steeped in such tradition with little room to express herself could be overbearing. Though her parents died tragically on the river, she still worried that 27 was entirely too late to get married. She thought she should be a mother by now. Her older brother, Bakari, thought so, too. Ever since the accident, he took on a fatherly role for Miriam. He, too, hadn’t married; this was odd for a man of 35. But he didn’t have time for such things. Managing the Karnak Hotel took up enough time. He took care of Miriam, giving her a pleasant job as Head Concierge, seeing as she knew the area and its lush history so well. He had no idea, though, that she longed for something more. She wanted to see America.
Nothing was ever easy for Franz. As an Ulrich, though, and as a strong German man born the year the second World War ended, nothing should be easy. Ulrichs always worked hard for their goals, and that was how they became so successful in the textile business. For years, they kept employment in the bloodline. Since he was a boy, Franz lifted heavy materials, helped with the books, cleaned the warehouse, and took orders for his father. Though the youngest of 3 boys, he always seemed to take the most responsibility. This is probably why he was chosen to be the first Ulrich to leave Germany since World War I. He had a knack for the hard sell, especially with his mastery of the English language. It felt like vomit to him, personally, but no customer would ever know. This helped in material acquisition as well, especially in northern Africa. He found that some of the best materials and ideas came out of lesser-known Egyptian municipalities, which is what landed him in Luxor, Egypt in 1986.
So, I recently started playing a cool roleplaying game called Scion. We use John & Anne’s House Rules and have been enjoying it thoroughly. I’ve never played anything like this before, nor have I wanted to. Luckily, my fiancée convinced me to give it a shot. She was so right! I love it! We’ve been playing a few weeks and just ascended to demigods, but I finally went back to my brief outline of my backstory and wrote it up proper. In my next post, I will share it. If you are in my band and don’t want to metagame, don’t read it! Otherwise, have fun with it and let me know what you think!

A friend and I once ran into Jonathan Hyde (Van Pelt) in a pub after seeing him in a production of “King Lear”. My friend said, “Your character in Jumanji gave me nightmares when I was 7.”
Hyde looked him straight in the eye, stepped really close so they were basically nose-to-nose, and said: “Good.”
Then he walked away. What a dude.

years later juan sends a picture of himself to his birth mother. upon receiving the picture she tells her husband that she wishes she also had a picture of amal
he responds “theyre twins if youve seen juan youve seen amal”
I almost cried when I saw this part. This is what you do. You don’t continue on your way because it doesn’t involve you.
Look at the way she shields the stranger WITH HER OWN BODY.
This is what needs to happen when you see someone being bullied or harassed.
I love this so much you go girl
