From The Desk Of Sheriff Ortega (roleplaying in world)

Mother Superior,

It appears that the Port Harbor suburb becoming a "Hotspot" has led to a person's death. After the Friday night dance, I was called to the ETK warehouse. You know the "Squiddy Thing" that's on that property, and the large sign saying not to feed it? It's been fed, and from the looks of it, it's human.

Due to the Halloween celebrations, wolfsbane has become popular with some of the decorations, which in turn affects my senses, I'm unable to get a scent around the area. All I can say for now, due to the blood splatter at the crime scene, I don't think the victim got close to the Squiddy by choice.

Sister Mary Florence and Sister Mary Tek are looking for ways of removing the body from the Squiddy, although it's entirely possible that we'll have to wait for the body to come out by digestion. Once the body is out, contact Doctor Ryne Beck, who Sister Alma referred to as "The New Guy", I'd like an autopsy done on the deceased.

There's also the question of the identity of the body. Far as I know, nobody in Steelhead is missing. We'll have to ask around, check with officials in Steeltopia, Caledon, New Babbage, and other areas, see if someone's come up missing there.

As of now, I'm ruling this as an accident. However, my gut tells me that this was murder. With this happening on Doctor Alter's property, finger's will start pointing. I did briefly question Doctor Alter and her 'minion' Cato Quan. I cannot go any further until after the autopsy.

I'm afraid with the squiddy being outside, we can't keep this under wraps. You can see the body inside.

For now, I want a few nuns to search for clues as to the victims identity. Further orders will follow as the investigation progresses.

Sorry to bring this gruesome news to you. What a way to end October, hope this isn't a precursor to what November has to offer.

Darn, I'm Broke....Time To Pimp Myself Out

Between the Relay For Life events, as well as donating, occasional being out of town on certain weekends and missing Steelhead events, and now being unemployed in RL, my lindens are slowly disappearing (talk about mirroring RL).

Issues now are finding a good time for a gig at Gearz, what with a butt load of other events going on across the Steam Lands. Oh'll all work out in the end.

And in case you're wondering, here are the rates:

I used to charge L$250 an hour for a two hour set, although I've paid DJ's at Gearz 500 an hour. We'll leave it as negotiable, I won't go below 250 nor above 500, and I usually don't care to do events less than two hours.....just doesn't seem like a lot of fun if it's less than two hours. Oh, and tips are mine, I'm not splitting with anyone (yes, I have my own stream.....I mean, duh)...I'll also overcome my fear of the microphone and *shudder* speak into it.

Rental of Club Gearz: L$1500 for two hours, L$500 for each additional hour. If you want me providing music, no extra charge. If you want someone else, whether it's Diamanda, Angelica, Edward, Gabi, Wolfman Jack (Hey, if you bring him back from the grave, you can hire him), that particular transaction is between you and the DJ of your choice.

I also perform wedding ceremonies in SL. I performed Lunar and Tensai's ceremony......mind you I was dressed as Elvis and asked if they loved each other more than fried peanut butter and nanner sandwiches. Not sure about rates for those services, but we can go from humorous, to something slightly more traditional. Choice is yours (then of course, rates for DJ'ing the reception, see above).

Naturally, official Steelhead events come first, so I won't be available on Friday nights. As well as some Relay For Life meetings and events.

So, there you go. Just drop me a line at
Fuzzball Ortega
Dept. Anything
Steelhead City, Oregon

Or you could send an IM or drop a notecard on my profile.......
