Welcome !

PbP is a bit mystifying at the very beginning, but you will see that you will get used to it pretty quickly.

Have you sent a message to our Keeper ?

:)

Just a couple messages under an "Existing games looking for players" post.

I hate sounding like a wet blanket on the first day, but those opening attributes I rolled are quite less than desired. 5, 7, 7, 9, 9, and 10. The average for a 3d6 roll is 10.5. I was hoping to play a former soldier or criminal, someone a little beefier. I know CoC can be gruesome, but would it be alright if I rerolled those six, or total refill, whatever the keepers prefer? I'd keep whatever the new values were; if they're just as low or worse, well then that's just gods telling me this guy is gonna be soft.

You're welcome to insert whatever character so long as they aren't a) a politician, or b) anti-establishment terrorist. These are the only two occupations that aren't allowed in the scenario. Feel free to reroll the whole set.

Ok, so 7, 11, 12, 12, 14, then 12 & 12, edu of 18 (accidentally has +6 instead of +3) and money of 9. That'll suffice. And I see we already have a soldier.

So it looks like several more of us joined after the prologue. Are we going to still be on the train or is there a different way we are going to be introduced to the other players?

A few is going to be located directly in China. The remainder would be people that missed the party.

Just checking in to see if the game is still rolling down the tracks, as it were.

Sorry about the wait. It's just that I have lot to sort out IRL. I haven't contact Lee yet with the updated scenario overview, and I would personally like to involve him a bit more in the future...I don't know, I'll try getting in a post before monday. Thanks for the wait! :)

Argh, short thing I forgot.
Feel free to puppet me along for a while, I'll be out of town the next six days, doing archeology in the woods (which is fun with a prognosis of - 10 °C / 14 °F) and don't know yet whether I'll have internet there.

I'm a bit confused. Do you want us to try to get together on our own or are we going to be running individual storylines or will you create a reason for us to be together as the plot thickens...

If we are looking for a reason to get together, perhaps I could request a meeting with the other "foreigners" to support my missionary work in China?

I am confused also.

To get us back together, Mr Carver could also be writing an article about "the Occidentals who live and travel in Orient" ?

I think the direction to take thus far would be to run individual storylines that will gradually tie together as the plot thickens since that makes things less messy and give you guys more chances to RP. Apologies for not being as good a KP as I would've liked, though.
