Question Life in Twinsun

Hi,

For whatever reason, I just remembered a dream I had many years ago, that I lived in Citadel Island and was very happy. Then I woke up and was crushed when I realized that it was not true.

I started wondering if in this day and age I'd be that tempted to relocate to Twinsun, given the chance, and that made me wonder what it's like to live there.


Where do you go out on weekends?
If you live in Citadel Island, basically your only night out option is Chez Luc. Personally I can't stand the idea of going to the same bar/restaurant every weekend.
You can go to the beach, which is a great option in a planet where the sun never really sets, but what about rainy days?
Another option is going to other islands, like Tippet Island where you have a nightclub, but that leads to another question...


What's the state of public transportation in Twinsun?
Are there public ferries making rounds between the islands 24/7?
It doesn't make sense to take your catamaran if you're drunk or if the weather's bad.
Also we never really get an estimate of how long it takes to travel to other islands.


In addition to all that, Twinsen needs to be able to afford all this partying, which leads me to...

Off-topic: How does Twinsen make money?
I assume that in LBA2 he has some kind of hero's pension, considering there's a museum celebrating him. But how did he make money before the events of LBA1?


If anyone knows how, you're welcome to forward these questions to Fred. I'm sure he always had these things in mind.

He had the largest house in the whole island, even the game I think.
So he was probably a loaded guy. Maybe funfrock put him in jail cause he is a troublemaker and wants to take over the power?

Maybe this whole "legend" thing is a scam.

We know Twinsen has been seen killing people with his sword, hitting women, cannot lay of the cattle, walks like a drunk, destroys statues, likes to wear a pirate flag...

Maybe he was put there for a reason?

I think he and the pharmacist were selling contraband prescription meds to people on Twinsun. The pharmacist provided the meds and Twinsen provided the connections. The heat got too much at some point and the pharmacist used Twinsen's prophetic dreams to get him out of the picture.

The plan backfired and Twinsen ended up murdering the pharmacist over a bottle of cherry flavoured syrup. (I say murdered and not beaten up, because if I remember correctly after Twinsen takes him out, he never reappears in the pharmacy again).

If not already, an illustration must be done of this. Would love to see Twinsen wearing a literal pirate flag. Actually, this might even fit into a comic strip.

Hmm... Well, Twinsen has those ruins deep in his house. Perhaps he was archaeologist at some point. Perhaps that's a stupid conclusion to jump to, but it almost feels right with all of the Sendell revelations going on.

Actually, looking at it that way, maybe Twinsen was a prophet / missionary who helped Sendell in compiling and translating the Book of Bu.

But, like what you said in the beginning... Then that means that Twinsen would be a hypocrite... Goodness gravy.

After all, if you're the opposite of who people see you as... Then it makes sense. It'd be really crazy if Funfrock was actually the good guy and Twinsen the evil dictator.

But, now this is just getting pointless. Or so it feels like it to me...
