I'm hoping that everyone who is predicting Bembo the Barbarian is right! I voted for the Claireten alcohol-fuelled marriage, by the way, with the amendment that the marriage took place in Las Vegas and was carried out by a Klingon Elvis.

Welcome to the world of Fighting Fantasy, where being dead is nothing more than a serious inconvenience for a major plot-significant character. So, Jeph? Is Bembo blond or brunette? He can't be a redhead - Only barbarian princesses are redheads!

We've also confirmed that Jeph, either consciously or subconsciously, is a fan of Terry Pratchett's Cohen the Barbarian.

The usual

Mayhem, battles, looting, women in scanty outfits, demons, wizards, witches, warlocks, Orks and assorted ugly races and people.

Probably a Cameo by Conan thrown in for good measure.

You know, I think the sand is probably the most valuable option anyway. The regular QC cast would kill(?) for a kingdom's worth of sand, it's pretty great stuff. Unless you don't like how it gets everywhere, but Bembo doesn't seem to be someone who'd go for bad romantic language.

One thing that seems to be a universal trope with Barbarian Heroes is that they get bored very quickly and very easily. What's the point getting a kingdom or a pretty girl if they're just a ball-and-chain to your wandering fancy-free lifestyle?

Even if she turned out to be an adventurous tomboy like Merida in Brave, he and the princess would probably end up getting bored with each other and go their separate ways in the fullness of time (likely a few months, tops - Sixteen years later, he would end up meeting an awkward never-before-seen son or daughter).

As for magic swords, they just tend to be annoying with hidden 'only work if...' ethical traps and, more often than not, tend to be cursed in some way.

Of course, Bembo was born out of Jeph's wish that you could have really awkward reward demands in Skyrim, so we see that in action here. ;D

I can completely understand turning down a rapping sword.  Even if it was a good sword, rap would make me depressed all the time.  Don't want something that'll prevent me from being happy.

I can also understand turning down a marriage to a complete stranger.  Been there, did that (the turning down part, not the marrying part).  I get it, it's a practical arrangement that says you'll be part of the royal court.  But, if you don't even know the royal court, or care about them?  That's not much of a reward.  If she doesn't have any older brothers, you even get to be the husband of a Queen Regnant after a while.  Which is not the same as being King.

Unless it's one of those backward principalities where having a penis is enough to make up for not having been brought up royal and knowing what the hell you're doing.  If that's the case, you get to be the King, and either you take your wife's advice on everything or you watch yourself destroy a nation despite your best efforts, which is no fun at all.

I probably wouldn't have asked for sand, though.

Going for the sand is a classic Jack Donaghy move.

Jack: I'd like to spend my remaining gold to purchase a fire spell.
Toofer: And against whom will you be casting this spell?
Jack: Against myself. I am setting fire to my own desert.
Sue: You're insane!
Jack: Am I? I'm going to turn my desert into glass, and glass is a commodity that you all need, for your elfin oracle mirrors, for your crystal palace, for the colorful glass beads that you keep buying for some reason.
Lutz: I'm going to wear them to the pirates' ball.
Jack: You need my glass. And I'll take your gold And eventually, the throne of 1,000 kings. You see, it doesn't matter if I'm on the wind-blown dunes of Kroth or in the fluorescent-lit boardrooms of 30 Rockefeller Plaza. I will create something from nothing. Today Malaar, Tomorrow Kabletown!

This proves that the sand was the right choice - neither Belb nor the rapping sword would've given him a free kingdom saved.

Whether or not he wanted to save the Beach kingdom to absolutely demolish their inhabitants at Beach Volleyball is something we should leave for a different strip.

I was correcting a spelling error in the WCDT Title I didn't spot until IICIH pointed it out to me in a PM I got this morning.

I'd spelt January as Janurary.   Unfortunately, to completely wipe the error, I had to go into each and every Post and delete the extra 'r' in the Posts.  Thank grud IICIH Spotted it early.  Imagine if this Thread was into two or three pages!!
