Right, the problems with my computer have now been indentified. It looks like my motherboard is broken. Sadly, this realisation came at the same moment as my ethernet port joined the ranks of the departed. So I can't post from my computer anymore, this means I can't make those oh-so stunning maps and I won't have my notes and books with me when I'm online.

Hopefully I'll have time to fix this at the weekend, but I'm just letting you know that things are going to slow down for now.

The room which Inyx stayed is was a 5x4 square room very similar to the one which the rest of you slept in, just with much better decor.

Sorry I got distracted with visting friends in the untamed internetless wilds.

I'll post in the morning, should anybody want to do anything in the period while Thanos is armouring himself then speak now or forever hold your peace.

I'm hanging on as it seems like Daison would likely make comment on the fact that he was one of the intended targets of the botched kidnapping/assassination. I'll post tomorrow though if nothing is forthcoming.

I was going to make that post rather longer but I realised something. Are you planning on leaving the prisoner unsupervised and unbound? Is somebody staying being? Or mysterious option 3?

Moving on seemed like a bad idea as this is one of those decisons which I'm sure you know could well come back and bite you on the arse.

I've left Sevilin's post poised at the point of action, just in case others which to intercede

I'll take that as a no for the interupting then

I have to go to a lecture on Quantum Burrito Fields in a second, but I have a cunning plan to post this afternoon.

And once again I have to say that my internet access has become slightly more restricted. I haven't had time to look properly at my computer and it chose that window to escalate the level of broken. So I'm stuck at uni where the computer room is full nearly all the time due to the large amount of computing projects and small amount of computers. My plan is to get my updates done early in the mornings and in the late afternoons. With luck, you'll notice no change. Then again, I can't draw maps or look at anything other than the SRD so it could be quite exciting.

A new power supply is winging its way toward me, this should allievate some of the problems I've been having. Hurray!

Right, although I've been at a computer all day I've not had the time to try and put together anything resembling a coherent IC post. Hopefully I'll have a bit more free time tomorrow.

And if not then my new power supply should have arrived by then and there's a good 50% chance it'll let me get back online at home again.

Yeah, so my cunning plans fell through. I've got a deadline approaching and my current work is taking more time than I'd exacpt so although I am sat at a computer all day I've not got enough free time to put together a coherent post.

Also, that bloody power supply has still not arrived. I may ring the company when I go and grab some lunch and demand some answers.

Pandawatch Day 168:

An unreasonably large box arrived this morning containing my power supply, hopefully I'm far enough ahead in my work to skip out at a about five today and try and get my computer working again.

Let it be known that I feel pretty bad about the constant series of delays. After this, I'll wrangle a new player and with a little luck this game will end up on the fast track.

Don't worry about it - RL stuff has a way of intruding from time to time

Power supply installed!

System able to power up!

Mapping software loaded!

And then I really just could not make a post with any kind of flow. Sorry it's a bit crappy, it seems to be an off day for anything creative.

Thanos it's surprise round, you can't make a full action. Just a standard.

Tamarind, that also isn't a standard action. Really, if you want to do that you'll need to win the initative, otherwise you'll just be closing the gap like Bollan.

It seems a little odd that surprise rounds only grant a standard action, it seems to limit their usefulness for melee types.

Also worrying is that Dev hasn't been on the site for several days.

Fair enough, I've amended the post to be intention rather than achievement until we see how initiative turns out

Hopefully Dev will be back soon, Daison's an excellent character

In other news the national student film festival is this weekend and as I'm a manager my plate is rapidly filling with stress and busy in equal parts. If I drop off the earth and don't reappear by Monday then I've had a stroke and you should mourn my death with a large bronze statue.

Right guys, crunch time. It looks like we've lost two players in a very small space of time and the game seems to have been seriously ill for an extended period.

I need honest answers. If I track down two or three new and excited players, drop them into the game and do my very best to get it moving again, will it be worth my time or am I beating a dead horse?

I'd certainly be in, whilst it's true the game's been slow I am still enjoying it - and the characters. A couple more players and a faster pace would suit me fine

Sorry Tamarind, she's dead. As is common practice, I'll do my best to transcribe the various notes I have lying around so that you can at least get some idea of what was going on around you.
