Meant to come in here and say that I don't know what to do next...

We're in a hallway, heading towards the hangar, still in the dark.

Do we find an end to the darkness before we hit the hangar?

Is the hangar also dark and out of power?

Are the guards in this area alerted and barricading the hangar out of fear of our escape?

Some other thing?

Sorry for being AWOL once more folks....combination of work, spending time with missus and this that and the other.

I will catch up with your IC posts tomorrow and try to make a post with some narrative/questions before going off to games night tomorrow evening!



On other notes:

Kathleen, I hope you enjoyed your week in the spotlight as Geek of the Week!?

Next Tuesday I have a job interview (Still Estate Agency, but a lot closer to home) so here's hoping I get this one (didn't get the last one) so I can stop spending £10 a day on fuel to get to/from work!

I just gotta say, I love the film "The Breakfast Club".

And from myself as well! I also have to apologize, I'm been working on getting my law practice off the ground, so it's been pretty stressful. I'm going to make sure to be more engaged on this moving forward, though!

I check RPGgeek daily, but we're all really busy folks. If someone doesn't post for a day, a couple, a few...I'm not bothered. I don't want anyone to feel bad about their ability to post. I think it's also okay if posts are brief just to keep it going. So no pressure, really!

Being Geek of the Week was so fun! If you didn't see the post: https://rpggeek.com/thread/1730903/rpg-geek-week-360-funkdon...

Also, an article about me and what I do (teaching game design to kids) went up on Cardboard Republic so I've had a very fancy week: http://www.cardboardrepublic.com/articles/role-selection/rol...

And, one last thing, my 8th graders are designing RPGs. Here's a link to their concepts as we get started, in case you want to see that. Feel free to comment (but only if you have time OR interest, no worries if you don't). https://rpggeek.com/geeklist/222360/student-rpg-design-proje...

Busy bee lately!

Good luck! Have you seen Better Off Dead? It's a really great, odd 1980s teen film.

Sorry for the absence - after hospital I was catching up on sleep all weekend and we're also in the process of trying to buy our first house so all is a bit mad around here!

I will jump back in the IC.

Well, in a normal circumstance, yes...but I'm ruling that it was difficulty 3 (for anyone else a 4) due to being caught off-guard and the distance between you and them.

However, we shall say you still plough through the middle of them as you say, but with consequences which I will now narrate.


Thinking about it, I really should have mentioned in my previous post what your difficulty would be on a roll - that was remiss of me. Sorry!


Vengeance and warrior hit. You're going into danger so 3xp

Being an Estate Agent - if you need help or advice, just ask!

What stage are you at?

I was already guessing that would be the minimum requierd, so I stopped to see what you'd make of it...

So what's the consequence of the injured status?

You are welcome to decide that. It could be narritive, you might decide to impose a +1 difficulty to tasks. You are in charge!

(Cyrus) Yup on both counts. So 5 xp racked up. Feel free to spend or store!
For Now, I'll hold onto the XP. I suspect I'll take Hail of Lead eventually. I'm imagining there'll be a climactic battle down the road.

Kathleen, thanks for the note. It's been a busy week, and I've been racking my brain for where I want to go with this next... Hopefully I've got a good idea, we'll see where it goes!

Sam, would you play as me? I'm taking four kids around Germany, Austria, and Switzerland and it will be difficult for me to play until Monday next week.

Thank you! And hello from your side of the Atlantic.

No problem at all. I'm not sure I'll need to right now, but I will if need be.

I had planned to make an IC post for both teams, but I can bearly keep my eyes open, let alone think straight, so it will have to wait for tomorrow.

Don't forget, all of you, that YOU are able to push things forward by pulling the strings on the NPCs as well. Also, think how your characters might be thinking/feeling right now and post based on that - even if it's just a quick snippet of internal dialogue - it might jog someone else into thinking of something to do!

It's amazing how time runs away from you so easilly!

I've had no time of late to do anything but will try hard to tonight.

Is everyone else still alive?
How are you all feeling about the game so far?

Still here.
I like the game a lot, but sometimes I'm in awe how easily content/NPC responses are filled in by players, I think I should probably take more liberties in that respect.

Still here.

I've been dealing with jet lag AND a nasty cold I brought home from Germany. Today's the first day I feel normal.

I think a little more direction would be helpful. I don't mind playing my character, driving plot, acting as NPCs, but I feel like we're kind of stalled and a little closure to this episode soon to move onto the next challenge would be good.

Still alive.

Falling away from the game at the moment. I get what you're saying with controlling npcs but I'm also not keen to control too much as I feel like I'm taking options away from other players. I like much of the setting and mechanics of the game, but I think I'm just about ready to throw in the towel.

Joline, and especially Matt - I'm very glad I asked then! I will gladly take a greater hand in the running and especially the NPC side of things! Expect me to do more as of tonight.

Players are still welcome to take a hand but I will do more myself.

Running at a table makes it easier to guage what level of interaction the players want in this game - it can be a lot harder when played virtually.So well done for speaking out!
