The story revolves around Thousand Sons 'The Man In Black', a fictional character (very loosley) based on myself. Other posters from DL find their way into the story at times too.
'Fred' is the nickname of a thread on DL that grew to immense size took on an evil life of its own.
Rene the Baker, Jimmy the Bartender, and Streck are characters that have been kicking around in stories of my for a long time. Thought it would be fun to bring them into the mix too!
'Sojourner', however, is a very real person.
And Sojo, if you're reading this, I haven't given up the 'good fight'! Thanks for your support! ;-)
