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.

No problem, Yockenthwaite. I'll run Elizabeth until you return. I hope you feel better too. I've also been very sleepy lately, so I understand all too well.

The adventure may actually conclude by the time you return at the pace it's going. I plan to officially announce the next one this weekend and recruit players so that I can take care of character creation while I'm off from work April 8-16 even if this adventure isn't quite finished, as I don't know when else I'll have time. That might also cut down on the downtime between adventures. All of you are welcome to return. The Time Lord and his companions can continue into the next adventure provided they survive, though Lucius's player may wish to retire him and create a new character. With his Sanity in the twenties and two indefinite insanities, he might not be cut out for further adventuring. He's also in Rome and only 36 years away from the time from which he comes, which may be as close as he'll ever get. Other characters from this adventure could in theory join the TARDIS crew.

The next scenario will be called The Horror in the Blackout, and it will be set in London in September 1940. Players who played characters in the first adventure, The Terror Out of Time, which took place in 1930, have the option of bringing them back and aging them ten years.

Just dropping in to say yes please for Elizabeth in the new game. It's almost her era too, which could be interesting.

Thank you all for joining in the next adventure! :D

It should be even more interesting for Elizabeth because she knows so much about history, in addition to having lived through this part of it (albeit as a child and not in London).

I've created the recruitment thread here.

Hey folks, sorry to have gone silent there for a couple of days. Up in Victoria BC with my two teens, so as one is slowly getting ready, I am able to check and see what happened in the catacombs of the villa. Off to thetartan day celebrations and then we are doing a escape room http://www.escapewarriors.com/ set in a museum. So that should be a good time.

The Horror in the Blackout has a board that can be found at this link. This game is almost over, but there may be some delay before the next one starts, especially as it will take some time for players to join and create characters. If you're interested in playing in that one, feel free to head over there if you haven't already. You can get started on creating a new character if you're not playing a continuing one when you're ready. I'll have more time to help finalize characters and get their sheets up over the next four days than I will for some time thereafter.

I'm kind of full at the moment with work, I'll be free again on Monday, would it be okay if I created the character then? Or maybe I can just take Marcus, but I don't know how that would play out.

Yes, it's okay if you wait until Monday to create your character. I'll be back at work then, so it may take me more time for me to get things set up, that's all. Having Marcus become a companion might be awkward in the next adventure. His Italian looks would be met with suspicion, which would only be increased by his unfamiliarity with the time and place.

And I'm back, playing Elizabeth, just as the game looks to be wrapping up. Thank you to Mr Handy for looking after Elizabeth while I recuperated.

Hope everyone enjoys new Who. We caught it earlier, on the BBC UK broadcast. Happy in this house :P

That's fine, don't worry about it. I haven't been feeling good or sleeping much this week, and I don't have much time during the week anyway. Tomorrow will be good, as I have more time on weekends.
