Okay, even though this is a standard newbie question that we normally insist you research yourself, I am feeling mellow, and will answer your question.

Back in the shrouded mists of antiquity (maybe 11 years ago), I did not own a 10mm firearm, yet still had the temerity to sign up for membership in the 10-Ring. (I feel compelled to point out that I was then a 45acp shooter, and not an afficianado of that "other" f'-caliber so heretically derived from the true 10mm faith.) Tazz10m, our leader, detected my impetuousness, and threw me into the 10-Ring Dungeon as punishment for my presumption. I was the first occupant of the Dungeon, and took advantage of that fact to get the Dungeon administratively organized for some useful financial activity. To this day, I can legitimately claim the title of Senior 10-Ring Dungeon Resident.

Years passed. The 10-Ring grew, and the Dungeon was responsible for much of that growth by supplying the administrative, logistic, and financial coordination that the marginally coherent 10-Ringers (pardon my redundancy) were incapable of mastering. In return, the Dungeon took a reasonable (in my opinion) cut of the take, and also gained the informal privilege of crashing the 10-Ring party blowouts during our off-time. The Dungeon also provided a veneer of sophistication to the drunken 10-Ring membership (again, pardon my redundancy) by forming several scholarly research organizations. Of course, as you may have already guessed, these outfits BEGAN as covers to launder our embezzled cut of the 10-Ring take, but they DID add a desirable veneer to the 10-Ring image, AND, as we learned how to latch on to outside grant money, actually became a profit source supplementing our nefarious internal embezzlement effort.

In later years, I acquired G20s, G29s, and further advanced my cause by converting a G30 to 10mm using standard factory 10mm Glock parts. This laudatory effort has been rewarded by my being granted Transitional Membership Status within the 10-Ring hierarchy. G33 has set a monthly quota for my expending my previous stock of 45 ammo, but I keep incurring her punishment wrath by regularly failing to meet this expenditure target. The price of my failure is continuing punishment sessions in her "Chamber"; such is life for my unworthyness.

Hope this helps.

P.S. It has become courteous accepted practice within this thread to capitalize all uses of the word Dungeon. Since you are new here, and as yet unaccustomed to subtle nuances of 10-Ring protocol, we forgive you the error contained in your post. We urge you to observe protocol in the future.

Jes, Queen is bringing her pre-Borg cabana girls.
Just a small support staff.

ONLY 1k? Why so FEW! For the Borg Queen entourage, that number would barely qualify as a skeleton crew (pardon my horrendous pun).

The Dungeon denizens appreciate your appreciation. One footnote, though: When you are participating in a 10-Ring party, take a bit of the edge off when you use the r-words in any description pertaining to the Dungeon. If you come on too strong, the myopic 10-Ringers (pardon my redundancy) may be puzzled to the point of incoherence by your seeming motivation in sucking up to the Dungeon types.

Like a bunch of drunk ten ringers could pass anything but a kidney stone.

...er, uh, .... I mean. I would think that the plenipotentiary Ten Ring signatory council would have final adjudication and decision making power.

But, let's face it, G called you Rabbity and you liked it.

Your comment brought a few chuckles to the Dungeon Admin types. We happen to know that the organization you specify is required by the Joint Penthouse/Dungeon Administrative Protocols to deliver a sober quorum for any administrative decision to be effective. Sober quorums are not really its specialty.

From my years of corporate experience, I have ascertained that emulation of sobriety is far more important than actual sobriety, especially from an adminstrative perspective.
Along these lines, I offer this article for your persusal.

So 1 out of 25 business leaders may be psychopaths? Here's some BIG news:

1 out of 25 10-Ringers may be sober.
1 out of 25 Dungeon types may NOT be embezzlers.

More on these shocking stories as we note developments.
