OOC: Discussions, absence announcements, etc.

On the lunar calendar, it is the twelfth of July, 1920; in three days' time, the good people of China will celebrate 中元節, the festival of the dead. The great festival is an ancient tradition shrouded in dark rumours and whispered tales. Now, this festival will be celebrated publicly in Peking city, open to the gazes and inquiries of foreigners. During this month, the 阴气, the aura of death, is at its strongest; it will be during this month that the dead may influence the living realm with an eldritch plot of horror and madness...

Yes, please join us! I'm playing the aunt of Elisabeth Grey (from Forbidden Journey) in this one, and right now I'm the only player.

Exactly, I had originally enlisted Lee as assistant KP because I wanted to incorporate a few side storylines into the plot as well because 3+ people said they're interested...and then most of them kinda dropped off the bandwagon.

Oh, the dainty Mss Grey, I can't say I remember liking her :)

I'd love to join.
I'll roll and write up by Monday.
Any particulars I should be mindful of?

There's not a lot of actual limits, just make sure that your character have an intrinsic motive to join and some sort dark, terrible secret since the antagonistic mythos creature will mess with your character's mind at multiple points of the game. I'll need to alter certain parts of the rules as well to re-adjust for the small number of players. Obviously, the sandbox dreamland side will have to be scrapped, and the whole serial killers thing will feel very anti-climatic when the entire scenario is meant to play out over only four acts.

Sorry for the delay, but with the sudden snow storm, we've had a bit of an increase in work load.
I'll get on it this week.

I'm thinking about playing an older gentleman, a professor of sorts. So let's see what the dice say.

DrPeterson rolled 3d6:
6, 6, 6

DrPeterson rolled 3d6:
2, 5, 3

DrPeterson rolled 3d6:
2, 1, 2

DrPeterson rolled 3d6:
6, 1, 1

DrPeterson rolled 3d6:
5, 3, 1

DrPeterson rolled 2d6+6 and got a total of 12:
3, 3

DrPeterson rolled 2d6+6 and got a total of 13:
6, 1

DrPeterson rolled 3d6+3 and got a total of 14:
2, 4, 5

OOC:   sorry for not making any posts here recently. Had too many things going on. I have not forgotten about this! I just can’t access Google Docs (which contained, like, 95% of the story for the scenario) in China. Give me a few days or so and I promise I’ll come back with a long post. :(
