crazed ginger assault by Pachycrocuta crazed ginger assault by Pachycrocuta
The follow-up to the dwarf barbarian for last week. I figured he could use some context, so have some charging into certain doom with a +3 or +4 Inspire Courage bonus. And yeah, I know that bodhrainn are Irish, not Scottish.

Me, I'd also have my battle-bards BEHIND my troops, but there's no accounting for mad crackit droomers, aye?

The Scottish bagpipers have been known several times to stand out in front of the troops, even at Normandy on D-day.  Just because they're hardcore like that.

It's the lack o'trews that does it; once you've spent a lifetime letting the gentlemen swing free in th'wee bit snaw and whiles leppin' oer the balefires, there's nae much that'll frit ye.

And yes, I am a hopeless fan of Terry Pratchett's Wee Free Men, also known as the Pictsies, who charge into battle with a wild array of battle cries from "Achtahelweit!" and "Dere can only be win t'ousand!" to "They can tak oor trousers but they canna tak oor dignity!"

Being a Yank too broke to travel, I've met few Scots except the American sort who tend to glamorize it all, but I have a great fondness for a grouchy redheaded stump I know who scraped together enough money a few years ago to go to Scotland for the dedication of a stone inscribed with one historic Bishop's curse on the border reivers--a great inclusive catalogue curse on their sitting down and their standing up, their cabbage patches and pigsties, their sleeping and their waking, and presumably their service stations and curry shops and websites and a'.

Hey that's alright I'm American myself.  Although I hesitate to use the word 'Yank' because it sounds like something we generally don't appreciate 'round these parts.

Got a good bit of Scottish in me though, and very proud of my anscestors.

I'm a midwesterner myself, but I followed a husband and a job to central Texas in the '80s and found myself bemused that a lot of the locals grumbled about "Yankees"--which they identified with citified East Coast lib'ruls, as opposed to what actual Yankees mean by Yankee, which is a laconic hard-working practical type almost identical to those hostile Texans except by location and climate.

Ancestors? Sure, I got 'em. (We all do.) Proud? Well, not ashamed, by and large; I'm certainly glad we weren't slavers. But mostly I'm entertained that we seem to have been the minor oddballs. The man who fell off the Mayflower; a minor Salem witch, or rather a woman executed as one (she wasn't one of the big names; if real life had credits, she'd have been one of the names under "Also Hanged Was"); that sort of person. Yeah, my mother's family is mentioned in the Domesday Book, but we've never been particularly important people that I know of, and that suits me fine.

But then, that's us lib'rul Yankees for ya. ;)

Helps 'em pinpoint where they're supposed to be going, I figured.
