OOC: Chat

Two M.U. students headed out on a camping trip on the banks of the Miskatonic a few miles west of Arkham. Now one is missing, and the other is found wandering the Arkham streets and a raving madman.

And it looks like the two groups might be merging soon ... :)

Since all six of you are in the same physical place now, I've locked the two separate threads and started a single new one. Any of you can post in the new thread now as you're all together, though you haven't all met and two of you inside the sanitarium while the rest are outside.

If I'm jumping places too quickly please let me know, or if I'm not giving you enough time to roleplay well let me know. In other words, if there's something you'd like me to do or not do just tell me. :)

Well, I'm thoroughly enjoying this so far....don't think I've ever played in such a fast paced start, it's great! Kudos to all my fellow players where English is your second language, those are some pretty amazing posts!

Just one question, amarriner - do we need to think about equipment and/or weapons?

I'm still waiting to hear from Jack, in case he has something to say or do, but as Odine has already inferred a bit more than a business relationship, I would assume Gregory would be a gentleman enough to have gone outside after her to ask what is wrong, and inquire if she needs help.

[concerning weapons] What good will it do if you KNOW you''l be disassembled in the long run? :D I can improvise with a tree if I have to. Any redwoods lyin' around? :D

[concerning kudos] Actually I learned English as my second language in Pennsylvania for 5 years... no wait... darn! that means no kudos 4 me :evil: That was a long time ago though and I was seven...

[concerning down-time] Since the Keeper's informing us about his down time, I'll inform that I'll be out on Wednesday, as I'm playing a concert. and the next weekend goes down the drain with two more concerts. free beer for me :D

I know what you mean...I'm also playing in the Haunting, and I'm getting more use out of a crowbar, a screwdriver and I've just put together a lassoo. I like how Cthulhu gets you to improvise. Besides, what kind of weapons could a botany student have access to - a trowel maybe? Some clippers...you never know when they'll come in handy I suppose :o

Great idea....although with your planned absences, zielon, Big Donald may end up meeting a scythe up close and personal courtesy of the Grim Reaper.... :twisted:

"Muito obrigada", which means "Thank you very much" in Portuguese. I've studied English only in Brazil, but playing pbf help me a lot.

About guns, Winston has a gun... :P

Edit: And I'm loving this game, specially the players (you folks are very good).

Don't worry. Take your time. We, fortunatelly, got more time than you, but you don't need to hurry to catch up on us. This is the beautiful of pbf, you can play when you can play. :)

Have nice dreams...

No problem at all, doesn't change my character at all. He has had a bit of a hard time, so with a new job and a nice girl that seems interested, maybe he's starting to think things are finally looking up. Oh the poor sap, how little he knows, Mwuh ha ha ha ha (cue dramatic music).

My first also, I like it. Trying to get a weekly meeting together when everyone has jobs, kids, etc. does not work like when we were in high school. I am no judge, but it seems like everybody, including yourself, is really into their characters and that makes a good game. I would guess that the real game killers in play by post (or forum, or mail, etc.) is going MIA or not playing a character consistently.

Out of curiosity, where is the "Grayest place on earth!"? Seattle? Wales? Maximum Security Prison? A gray paint factory?

Grayest place on earth!

Is an inside joke between me and a college roommate about Western New York, after looking out our window we decided we only needed a pallet of 4 colors to paint any scene here black, white, brown, and safety yellow.

It's an abysmally depressing place.

Does invisible castle just like to give high numbers or something? at this rate we might as well reserve a room at the sanitarium now.
