Raoul des Sablières

I have mentioned the RPG Show the Colours, which I adore.

There are canon characters from Hornblower, Sharpe, and O'Brian, as well as own characters. One of the ones I write for is Raoul des Sablières, a French Hussar Captain on parole. He's a canon character in that I found him in a book by D K Broster, called "Mr Rowl". I do wonder if anyone around today has read it, or her other books such as The Flight of the Heron

Well, Raoul has just acquired an avatar, based on this image:
and manipulated by our player sans nom.

And I am posting this just because I think she has made me such a beautiful and appropriate picture that I wanted it here too.

And Show the Colours would welcome other players...

I would like it to be known that I am in no way shallow because I adored Raoul before he was revealed to be so devastatingly beautiful and swoon-worthy.

You also went off with Colonel Edrington just as Private Thompson was going to declare undying love.

(OK, we have the reset just before that could happen, but even so...)

He seduced me.

(And, boy, was he good at seduction...)

You didn't put up much of a fight.

I did not want to - if someone shows me affection, it is not so great a leap to assume that affection might be returned. Besides, you have your boy-toy now.

Emphasis on 'boy'.

An' he was nice to me, an' all, an' I miss him...

I know, Thompson, and he misses you too. All too soon, our journey will be over, and there will be no battles to fight side by side...

My dearest Stephen, you know where my affections - but hush, this is not the place.

If anyone not from StC reads this - StC consists of battles on land and at sea, spying, murder, and lots of soldiers and sailors and camp followers. Other relationships are explored in a friendly pub, outside the Game...

You are quite right, my dear - forgive me.
