Going... Going... Gong!

You can get fun things from eBay.

It was in a pretty mucky state when it arrived a few weeks back, and it's still a bit spotty but I've given up on polishing it for now; it'll do, and the Brasso smells horrible.

It is a very elegant gong! Well done!

Highly amusing.

Will it feature in 'Chariots'? You could ritually strike it when a character strikes out.

Crazy or smart?

I can sense a tradition being born right there. You didn't go to an ancient university by any chance did you? ;-)

Er, yes. Although I also applied to Bristol and Hull...

I wonder if you could also use the striker to help you convince errant players of the rectitude of your GM-decisions. Perhaps a player whose character is beset by uavoidably lethal foes could signal the character commiting hara-kiri by appropriately sounding the gong. The possibilities seem endless and I await with baited breathe you posting videos of the gong in action.

(All this is in good humour, I hope, and is really me prevaricating away from stuff I really should do but don't want to.)

Aarrgghh - apologies all round, especially to ggreig, for the appalling typo in my last comment.
