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.

I'm home but picked up a really nasty lurgy in Oxford. Too many people coughing at the conference I think! Luckily I got home before dire. I'm likely to be really bad for the rest of this week, so can you continue to NPC Elizabeth please Mr Handy? Through to maybe Sunday 20th. I haven't read the IC thread yet. My husband has the same infection and is able to go to work. I've got a permanently suppressed immune system and have it + very nasty added flu-like extras. Thanks!

No problem, I'll continue to NPC Elizabeth. Right now there's nothing much for her to do except listen. I hope you feel better!

Many thanks. Still very ill, but able to follow the thread now, so I should be able to post if need be.

Not so sure I will manage any Christmas food! But hey, I'm losing a lot of weight :)

And to you as well!

A lot of people have noted the same thing about Invisible Castle, which now appears to be defunct, and some have actually preferred this dice roller. Both have them have rolled both very high and very low for me, often when I least want them to do so. A couple of tough encounters got short-circuited by allied NPCs rolling multiple 1s on 1d100 when attacking the enemy, such as a certain battle at the end of The Shadow Over Dunwich.

I've got an out of state funeral to go, two aunts passed away within two days. I should be back by this weekend. Mr. Handy by all means NPC Story until then if needed.

Yes sympathies Jason. I can relate at least in part: one of my aunts died a few weeks ago :(

My condolences to you both. I'll NPC Story if it's necessary, but it probably won't be.

I do think that Artemius probably should have spent some time finding someone to explain the current state of things in Rome. He also is apparently setting a family tradition when it comes to making dice rolls...

I'll be on one or more mountains in Ireland till the 14th, so I probably won't be able to post.
Mr H., feel free to NPC my character.

No problem. Have fun!

I'll be away myself at a convention from February 18-21, and I probably won't have time to post then. However, I'll have more time in the days leading up to it, so maybe I'll finally be able to post and update the character sheets for the new characters.

I'm really struggling with my neurological illness at the moment, for much of the time very very confused. So I'm not in a good place for roleplaying. Mr Handy could you NPC Elizabeth until at least 21st February? Hopefully I'll be out of the funk by then!

Thanks. Hope you enjoy your convention Mr Handy and have fun in Ireland DrPeterson. One of my ancestral homelands! :)
