Players Tell the Strangest Tales

“Let me get this straight…” Elladan began, “the players are telling a tale of identical twins who become separated by a shipwreck. Oh, and they both have the same name, and identical twin servants who also bear identical names…”

“We really should have identical twin servants…” his brother interjected.

“One ends up with his brother’s wife trying to bed him whilst he is enamoured of someone else,” Elladan ignored him, “who rejects him because she thinks he is a cheating husband and…”

“In such circumstances, mistaken identity,” Elrohir explained, “would never really happen.”

But his smile told a different story.

Like Jay this tale of twins made me think of... well, twins.
