It was probably apparent very early on what an asset to the show the character was and that she should stick around longer...

    SoapLand - The Battle Of Bribery and Blackmail - The Result

    If you're one of Soapland's more shady characters two of the best ways to get what you want were bribery and blackmail. If one doesn't work the other usually will. Whether you wanted to get someone out of town or get them to do your bidding, these two techniques were often just the nudge in the...

    Pun Fun

    I thought this might be something fun to liven up the Lounge a little as it's pretty quiet around here these days! (although technically I guess this might belong in the Play Games forums). This is an idea I got from a radio show here in Ireland. Everyday the presenter will pick a topic and...

    My Dynasty art

    As most of you will have noticed from my signatures and elsewhere I've made a fair bit of Dynasty art over the last few years. I have for the other soaps too but for some reason Dynasty, especially, but not only, Joan, seems to capture my imagination the most. Anyway, I've been going through...

    SoapLand - The Battle Of The 'Caught In The Act' Moments - The Result

    It was hard to keep secrets or get away with much for long in Soapland, as the chances of you getting walked in on or overheard tended to be much higher than they would be anywhere else.
