Today I was listening to the radio and they mentioned some problems in
the town of Minsc. What did I think ??

"Squeaky wheel gets it done"

"Go for the eyes Boo, go for the eyes"

I've just been playing these darn games too long :-)

LOL, with the hamster and the crevice remarks, he might have been more at
home on Queer Eye for the Straight Guy. ;p

"Baervan Wildwanderer":

Though your ultra-capitalist NPC would be sort of cool too.

P.S. The original poster was referring to Minsk in Belarus, right?

Yes, of course, but it made it more obvious to spell it Minsc :-)

Not sure what happened there on Saturday, but it got several mentions on
Radio 4.

"Me? I'm the head of Vecna"
