I do feel it's a shame he and the dragon weren't able to make a truce. I think they could have made a great grilling team!   Love the picture!

I love how his occupation is just 'Legendary Cowboy Chef'. That's one doozy of an icebreaker.

Ok, so Tauric, not necessarily a minotaur or a centaur, but still an anthropomorphized animal. So possibly still made of burgers. I think I may be getting the hang of this. -Chris/kitoypoy longpork-ian

I don't know if you chose the German word "Bürgermeister" (mayor) on purpose, although the German name could also indicate that, but I love the play on words. I believe I will only pronounce this word with an English accent ,-).

Stay imaginative and feel free to browse through Blue´s Worlds - Elaqitan - Naharin.
