Fridgeman finished looking at Feldgrau and turned his PC off and decided to go for a walk across the fields
towards the old aircraft hanger and parked outside was a red Stuka with some strange attachments.
Fridgemans first thought was "What the hell am I doing in a Forum Heroes Story?" He must have spoken out loud
because Bill came up next to him and said "The first rule about Forum Heroes, if you write on the thread, you are
fair game to be used in the stories".
Fridgeman looked at Bill and saw him wearing an old British RAF uniform and what seemed to be German medals!
He was also wearing a Napoleonic stovepipe shako, which he replaced with a leather cap and googles when flying.
(Bill had crashed behind the German lines early in the war, lost his memory and convinced himself that he was a
German, continued to fly, but this time for the Luftwaffe, successful, but completly mad).
Bill invited fridgeman to come over and sit on a wooden crate, swung the lantern and started to explain the concept
of the "Forum Heroes". Firstly, there is no inner circle, anyone on Feldgrau can be a Forum Hero, we are all "Heroes" here.
Secondly, Forum Hero stories can take two directions, one is semi-serious where everything stays within reality, or
it can be totally way out where anything is possible, I prefer the latter.
"I will give you an example, fridgeman, climb up onto my shoulders" which fridgeman did, then Bill climbed up onto
fridgemans shoulders. Bill shouted down "Now see how high up I am". Fridgeman looked down to see that he was
standing on thin air, some 6 foot up! Bill shouted down "You see, Forum Heroes can do anything!"
They climbed down and Bill made a pot of Yorkshire tea and fridgeman was starting to understand.
Bill pointed up into the sky and said "See that large transport aircraft flying past very high". Fridgeman nodded.
"That aircraft is flown by David (Commissar D, the Evil) he has been flying around trapped in a Forum Heroes
story since 2004. We have been fighting WW2 in a constant 14 year loop, so it is only a question of time before
we bump into ourselves once in a while".
In the far distance Bill heard what sounded like an AFV starting up. Could that be Tom Houlihan?
"Come on fridgeman, you are with me, lets get this Stuka serviced, I have a feeling it is starting all over again!"
The Forum Heroes are on the march!
