The Zero Room - OOC Chat Thread

London, 1940: The world is engulfed in the flames of war, and now the war has come to Great Britain's capital. German bombers rain death and destruction upon the blacked-out city, but what other terrors lurk unseen in the darkness? The Time Lord, his companions, and a handful of London's inhabitants doing their bit may be the only ones who can avert disaster.

This is Classic Doctor Who meets Call of Cthulhu, the fifth of a series of connected adventures set in different eras and locations that includes The Terror Out of Time, The Ninth Planet, The Shadow Over Dunwich, and The Brotherhood of Death.

What happened to the Tinker character? I know the player is MIA.

She isn't present. She didn't return to the church the second night. I've basically put her in the background until and unless she gets a player. She may still be around doing things, but you don't know what she's doing or where she is. She may also have left. I'm leaving the door open in case she does get a replacement player, or her original player returns.

Writing this now to give you plenty of notice, but I'll be on holiday from 24th May to 1st June with little or no internet access.
Feel free to NPC my character while I'm away.

Sorry Mr Handy for my delay in posting. Been rather out of it, and struggling somewhat to keep up with the plot! After this many games you'd think I'd be ok with that :P But it's an ongoing challenge. Hopefully we are moving things on a bit now.

Thank you, and don't worry about it. I think I'll be able to move things forward before I go off to my convention in a few days, as I should have time to post more often before that.

Sure, no problem. I've been sick lately, and I'll be going away myself next week provided I finish recovering, though I should still have time to post during most of that. The game's been stalled for the last couple of weeks, but hopefully things will get moving.

Sorry I'm a bit out of it at the moment, and really struggling to remember the plot etc.! :P Hopefully things will ease for me in the coming weeks. Dratted MS-like illness ...

I'll be travelling a bit in mid August, but should have Internet in the hotel, and so can hopefully keep up. So long as my brain complies!

Hope you feel better now Mr Handy.

Thanks, I'm mostly recovered now. I'll be traveling myself over the next eight days, but I should have time to post except for the first and last days of it. I hope you feel better too.

That's okay, and welcome back! I don't have enough time tonight to update and split the threads, but I plan to do so tomorrow night. If anyone wants to go with Brook and hasn't already said so, please do so by then.

Back home, and just about recovered :P We were in Dublin, Ireland for this year's Worldcon scifi convention being held there. I was only at the con on a couple of days, cos of my MS-like illness. But had a great time, and my husband was there much more. We also met an old uni friend from 25 years ago who had flown in from Japan. And I had a 3.5 hour family reunion on Sunday afternoon, with my long lost Irish family (Dublin). Magical! That last one fair took it out of me, but just about recovered now. So happy, happy trip. Now to see what's been going on in the game ...
