"What, then, makes you a different species?" Vensinu questions Ogenbond. He takes a drink of his vodka, and reshuffles his papers.

Ogenbond takes his free hand and touches it to his forehead, following the line along which his nose bridge extends almost to the top of his head. "The totally incompatible reproductive system is probably the big distinction. As I understand, our skeletal structures are also quite different. I am from a planet with higher surface gravity than this campus, and thus my bones are thicker and stronger. My understanding is that most humanoids do not have the solid bone plates that we do over our heart and lungs."

"Mhm. So you are distinct, yet the way you make it sound makes it seem like your species broke off from humans through the spreading out of their species."

Wallace pulls up a chair, or rather more of a little capsule that might have been taken from an Alien set, to the table. "Arf arf arf arf, arf arf!" The motherfucker grins after telling the two ambassadors about his unique skeletal structure, the baculum. As anyone would, to be fair. "Arf arf arf arf arf. Arf arf." Wallace flaps his flippers around his tusks as if he was making some mold, caressing them, dragging downwards. He really is rather fond. "Arf arf!"

Ogenbond resets his translator just in time to get an earful of Wallace's detailed description. He closes his eyes, then opens them wider than ever. "What an...exceptional anatomical lesson. I truly have no interest in knowing whether the same holds true for similar creatures back home. Alien bodies have a character totally unlike our own."

Izzy looked up and saw Morgana, "Hey Mor, well I'm taking a little break right now and the girls are with my wife and their mother. You can find some really interesting creatures in this bar. Like that lizard humanoid over there from Untecna." Izzy over at the Untecnan WA ambassador.

"I heard that!" he exclaims from across the room. "I'd prefer to be called an 'Irean'vi', thank you very much! Calling me a humanoid is essentially referring to me as a 'xeno', and we Untecnans find that rather insulting!"

Isabella looked back at the Untecnan with a raised eyebrow, "That is good hearing you have sir. I apologize for unintentionally insulting you or your species as the New Martial Kingdom would view your species as humanoid even if your species is older than mine."

At this point a large black raven flew into the bar. Its eyes seemed to glint with unnatural intellegence. It landed on the bar, and the patrons noticed some of its feathers were askew. It paused a moment to use its beak to smooth down some feathers before looking around. After a minute or so of glancing around it yelled out in a raspy, yet intelligable voice,

"What does a Corvid have to do to get a bowl of eyeballs, or plate of entrails in this joint?"

A couple of minutes later Violet came out of the kitchen and placed a bowl of "eyeballs" in front of the Raven, who began eating them with gusto. Patrons with a strong stomach could observe the "eyeballs" were actually large cocktail onions stuffed with cream cheese and pimentos, by Dazza.

Supreme Marshal Enta looks over at the raven gorging itself and chuckles. "You know those are going to give you terrible gas later, they always do."
Tapping his empty glass he summons Neville. "Top Bell off too he's looking dry." Chuckling to himself the Marshal muses aloud. "apparently you CAN be in two places at once if you try hard enough."

Vice Ambassador Percy Winslow stepped into the World Assembly Strangers' Bar, still having flashbacks from the mid 2010s: pantless and crawling on the floor, singing the power ballad "Do You Remember, Chubby Perks?" Enough time had passed, he had assumed. Besides, Percy thought, he wasn't the nerdy, awkward summer intern anymore that he was back then, he was now a nerdy, awkward diplomat.

In those days, Unibot commanded something of a positive reputation in the WA, marred only slightly by its representatives' petty corruption, lewdness, drunkenness, rule-breaking, crudeness... okay it wasn't ever the most respected of nations. Its founder, Eduard Heir may also have been found guilty for some war crimes too (but we've all been guilty of a bit of that riff-raff from time to time).

Percy introduced his aide to the Strangers' Bar, his arms wide open... "Ms. Montebello, welcome to the Strangers' Bar. The traditional way to celebrate your first week at the WAHQ! Some tips: first, always order the truffle fries. Never order the red ales. Don't look anyone in the eye for too long, especially a witch. Exclusively use the bathrooms for relieving yourself. And when you do, use the bathrooms exclusively for relieving yourself."

Chiara, trailing behind Percy, was immediately charmed by the pub's rustic atmosphere. How lovely!

"Do you come here often?" said Chiara.

"Only when I've had a rough day," said Percy.

Percy sat at the bar and extended his hand to another stool.

"New girl gets Eduard Heir's seat," said Percy.

Chiara looked at the seat with amazement.

"Eduard Heir?? The Eduard Heir??" she said.

"The one and only, I hope," he said.

"Are we allowed to sit on it? Did he really sit here?" she said, astonished.

"Eddy did a lot there, frankly it's a miracle he didn't die there," said Percy. He ordered two beers on tap and a side of truffle fries to start the evening off right.

"So, Mr. Winslow, when will I get to draft a resolution?" said Chiara.

Percy coughed up some foam, "Kgk-k, sorry?" Chiara blushed. Percy, flustered, said "We're not a WA nation, Unibot doesn't draft resolutions anymore. And besides, we're not exactly popular with the other delegations."

"So it's not just me then, I was starting to think I had died and had become a ghost," said Chiara.

"No, no Ms. Montebello, the only member of our staff to officially die and become a ghost on the premises was Dr. Wager - he haunts the fourteenth floor," he said casually in a matter-of-fact tone.

"What does our office do then if we're not drafting anything?" said Chiara.

"Ultimately, Unibot pays us to maintain an official presence in the WAHQ, we drink the free drinks, eat the free food, sleep the free sleeps, and - from time to time - communicate corporate's input on resolutions," said Percy.

"Does anyone ever take your advice into consideration?" she said.

"Oh good god no, I think most delegations are afraid if they acknowledge us, they may be cancelled," said Percy. "Relax, Ms. Montebello. It's easier this way, really. Once you lower your expectations and abandon your professional development, you can get very comfortable with doing nothing noteworthy on company time."

The Supreme Marshal laughs at the conversation and interjects. "He did die there, several times but the safety features of the place kept him around, hell he's probably in the cellar drinking from the barrels still."
