The Zero Room - OOC Chat Thread

Rome, 44 BC: The long and bloody civil war is over, and Julius Caesar has emerged triumphant as the undisputed ruler of Rome. The Republic appears to have been saved, but all is not right. Dark schemes and intrigues abound, and unimaginable horror lurks behind the scenes. The Time Lord and his companions, along with various people living in Rome, are caught up in the middle of it all. Can they unravel the mystery before chaos consumes everything?

This is Classic Doctor Who meets Cthulhu Invictus, the fourth of a series of connected adventures set in different eras and locations that started with The Terror Out of Time, The Ninth Planet, and The Shadow Over Dunwich.

The Zero Room is a room in the TARDIS that is cut off from the rest of the universe, where you can come to relax and chat. All Out of Character discussion, whether game-related or not, can take place here.

Thanks, both of you. I ran out of time tonight, so I wasn't able to put up any more threads yet, but I hope to get some of them posted during the week. The character creation thread will probably come next weekend.

Thanks, and welcome back! :D I won't be able to get anything done tonight, and tomorrow night doesn't look good either, but I may have time on Wednesday night to get the Introduction and the TARDIS crew's IC thread going. Lucius is currently an NPC (unless we find a player to take over the character), and Brook's player may not be able to post too often, but you can still get some character interaction while the TARDIS is in transit and the other players are creating their characters.

Welcome back, Vladd!

The introductory thread is up now, and so is the IC thread for the TARDIS crew. The four of you can post there while everyone else creates characters. I hope to have the TARDIS crew's character sheets and character creation information posted this weekend.

I've posted the Character Sheets thread (with sheets for the TARDIS crew) and the Character Creation/Rules thread. I plan to post another thread titled "Friends, Romans, Countrymen" with detailed information about Roman names, Roman society and background, and occupations (with skill lists and income). I don't have time to do this yet. I'll get started if I can during the week; otherwise, it will need to wait until the weekend. If you have enough information already you can get started creating your character in the Character Creation/Rules thread. Alternatively, one player can take over the character of Lucius Verres, whose previous player could not return.

I haven't had much free time yet, and I'm still jet lagged. If I can't get things started while I'm away, it will have to wait until Sunday. I'm off from work that day and the two days after, so that ought to give me all the time I need.

I'm sorry for the continued delay, but it has taken me a while to catch up and recover. I hope to review the new character and get things moving this coming weekend.
