OOC-Chapter 2-The Quick and the Undead-General Discussion

The truck stop is in a shambles. Many survivors remain, and the Air Force has arrived to take control, but are they more trouble than they're worth? Other survivors have scattered in various directions. Four have reached Warren Air Force Base, but it may not be as safe as it appears. Others are in the skinheads' compound, fighting desperately for their lives. Still others are in a secret underground facility full of mystery and peril. And a small group winging its way to Omaha in a helicopter must land at an airfield to refuel. The fate of the world may depend on them, but will they survive to reach their destination?

Welcome back, dustakr! I did receive your PM. I'm hoping to get Chapter 2 rolling in May. The other game I'm running, The Horror in the Blackout, is nearing its conclusion, so it might not be a good time to join, but after it wraps up I plan to start the sixth game in my Doctor Who/Call of Cthulhu campaign, which will be set in Renaissance France. You could play someone from that time, and I'm also looking for a replacement player for one of the Time Lord's companions.

Checking in and sees that there´s a notification alert. Nice!
Do we have a dice option in the works?

I tried the Dholes House dice roller:

The link gets you to the result. Looks promising. Or do you guys have another option going?
Cheers!

:D OOh! We do have dice! Lots of things changing in here!
But....hmmm. It´s not integrated in the post system, right?
I have to exit my post or open a new tab. Copy the result and paste it in the post.

Result
[23] = 23
1d100: [ 23 ] = 23

So, I still ask: whtat´s the plan for dice?
Over and out for now.

Welcome back, Dave! When you roll the dice, there's an action with the roll where you can place it inline in your post, which I think is better. There's a thread here where we test and discuss the new dice roller. I intend to use it myself (I'm already doing so in my other game and in the games in which I play). Players are free to use it or to use alternative dice rollers, or even to roll physical dice and put the results in their posts.

Here's an example of an inline roll:
d%
Here's the code:

Code: Select all

[roll=39]d%[/roll]
It's the weekend now, though I'm still probably going to be too busy to get more of Chapter 2 started. However, next weekend is a three day weekend for me, so I'm hoping I get things moving then.

I'm starting to get more Chapter 2 threads going, so keep an eye out for new threads appearing. I should be able to get a little more started tonight, but not everything. I may have time tomorrow as well, but there's no guarantee. Next weekend I won't have as much time, but I'm on vacation from July 3-11, so I hope to get the rest going by then, as well as get the next adventure in my Doctor Who/Call of Cthulhu campaign started. I really don't want to enter into George R. R. Martin territory keeping everyone waiting for the next installment.

No rush on the threads Mr.H! I hope we'll be able to recruit some new blood as well, though my attempts seem to have proven unsuccessful. And is the forum still closed to new registrants?

Yes, I'd also like to recruit some new players. I don't want to have to run dozens of new characters in addition to all the surviving NPCs from Chapter 1. I intend to update the recruitment thread in Existing Games Looking for Players soon in the hopes of getting some new ones. New players can register now, they just have to be manually activated.
