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...

As far as I am concerned, the faster we are all back together, the better !

No worries! I should be the one apologising for the delay, if anything. ;)

I'm so sorry, just as we're about to get cracking on this I'm going on a last minute holiday and may be very intermittent posting if any. Will be away 8 Mar -3 Apr. Margery will tag along wherever Vivienne goes. GM please NPC her whenever necessary. Many thanks!

I guess I'm a little out of sorts. I had my character know Cantonese, not Mandarin, in case the group came across folks from around Hong Kong. And his job down there is mostly a convenient, under-the-radar cover. I'm not sure why he'd be up in the Beijing area and going to the university there as he doesn't speak the language and doesn't want to gain attention. If that doesn't work, I could come up with a more convenient character.

Hmm...well, I assumed that your character concept would come with a built-in hook. No matter, here, how about this: ‘Jack Kenning’, now Cantonese professor at the University of Hong Kong, was invited to Peking to open a seminar on Linguistics, and he was tempted by the idea that he could have a chance to earn some extra money as well as the opportunity to haunt the poor residents of BeiJing with his antics as a burglar.

Just as an aside, I would ask to you to format your character sheet with a space after the end of each paragraph, it is difficult to figure where the beginning and end of each paragraph is on a mobile device. If possible, I would prefer it if you could change your Dark Secret to something non-Mythos related. I know the idea sounds tempting, but one of the foolish assumptions made when building a CoC character is that they fundamentally have never encountered any Mythos activity, or think they haven’t anyways...this isn’t a there-is-a-Shoggoth-under-your-bed-and-your-neighbour-is-a-wizard type of game. I don’t to sound like I’m lecturing you, but I would prefer it if the Dark Secret is something is a visceral mundane trauma that you see in a gritty cops show. PM me if you’re uncertain. :)

I was busy writing a book last month. Excuse me for the long unexplained absence as well. Formal apologies to everyone.

Alright, I finally got back in the game (excuse the pun), had been trying to get this back into full-swing for a while as I tried to find all my notes and tidy up the plot a bit. To my unfortunate discovery, I've found the document to be half corrupted after accidentally changing its file extension, and so I'm going to do what I could and rewrite what's there and give everyone a satisfying (albeit slow) game that everyone could be happy with as my first PbP game.

It wouldn't be particularly fair to the others if they were hyped for a game and the only reason they couldn't play was just because the GM forgot all about it. So I'm going to try and get the game back in swing and hopefully finish the story to a satisfying conclusion.

I would like this game to continue, if at all possible.

As would I. I know the Keeper logged in last Friday but hasn't posted in some time.

Sorry about this everyone, I couldn't keep a regular updating schedule for this game because many conflicting issues, and mostly just because I'm starting to lose the grip on what I intended to do with the story. I really just...Sorry. I'll get out of my rut and start posting immediately.

I'm going skiing next week, so might not be able to update timely because I would have little access to the internet.

I'm unclear if we are all in the same place or are being held in separate rooms.
