The exchange between Paul and Hardball regarding Sarte reminded me of this quote:

"Sometimes people are layered like that. There's something totally different underneath than what's on the surface. But sometimes, there's a third, even deeper layer, and that one is the same as the top surface one. Like with pie."

Nice post, Lisa.

I'm picturing the team at a club. Jack is sitting at a small table, debating with himself over whether or not one drink will hurt him. Paul is fetal underneath the table trying to claw his eyes out from the overstimulation of lights and sounds. Colin is out on the dance floor doing that stiff-hipped, WASPish, white-guy-on-the-dance-floor dance...

Come to think of it, maybe Starfire and Nightwind should go with just Hardball and Nick.

Yes, very nice. I'm trying to come up with something suitable for Jack but no need to wait for me.

don't worry about it gral - the next scene is going to involve a change of location so finish what you have for here.

I just picked up this book at The Game Depot (our local gaming shop). If anyone's interested and Arizona's a little out of your way, they're also available at Amazon.com.

Alright, done (for now). I reserve the right to edit if I read it later and cringe.

Nice. Even though the team doesn't know about Jack's relationship with alcohol, I had wondered if our hideout was dry and what that would mean for him. So much angst. We need to take Jack somewhere fun. Someplace with no alcohol and the ability to vent frustration physically. Maybe a batting cage?

OK. It's past midnight, so it's now officially Monday, which means it's J's birthday. So happy birthday, Dr. Deathwish.

And now, Dethklok with a special birthday song for our special birthday boy.

Polnoch's surprise is a vacation to the french riviera (well to europe really). You arrive here

http://cagnard.free.fr/index.php

You're all given credit cards and passports with alternate identities - cell phones, computers, kindles, eurorail passes, rosetta stone for all the European languages, pretty much whatever you may need. Polnoch warns that contacting people you know in the states still could draw unwanted attention. If its an emergency he has a satellite phone that's virtually untrackable.

Everyone will need to come up with what they're going to be doing for the next couple of weeks. Polnoch is only able to spend the first day with you before he is called out for "pressing business". He leaves a number for you to contact him when you're ready to begin your training. He does suggest thuroughly enjoying yourselves as Luscinia is a stern taskmaster.

You have the means to travel anywhere in Euroasia so have fun.

Any volunteers want to write the opening for the next scene? I'm seeing something along the lines of a reflection on what you've been doing while you're traveling to Polnoch's training camp. It would be probably be helpful if everyone would post a short description of what you did, and what everyone else THINKS you did during your break (if you went out on your own and stuff).

If you think your character picked up some new skills during the vacation lets discuss that as well.

This of course also opens up an opportunity for our first Special Issue. Special Issues are little side adventures/story arcs - if you have something in mind lets storyboard it out. If you'd like to brainstorm send me an email (or open a gdoc).

Did Hardball ever get medical attention? Those holes were pretty deep, and I don't think he wanted to shift back to normal like that. And somehow being all silver and shiny doesn't sound like laying low to me.

I'm torn between having him want to go rock climbing in Switzerland or surfing in France. Both are in season. If anyone voices an urge for company and has an idea that sounds like more fun, he'll also be game for that. He's easily lured by parties and outdoor sporting adventures. Any takers, or do we want to split up and get some alone time for a couple weeks?

I'm also game for a special issue if I can think of something with the right combination of funny and mighty. I'm not sure what Hardball went off to do yet, but I know it'll be a Hardballtastic adventure.

I expect Paul will end up needing to be alone, but he'd love to share time with the team. Meet up in a Paris cafe with Starfire and Nightwind? He needs to catch up on some things so he'll be zipping through France museums, libraries, laboratories, observatories... the odd cathedral. Basically he wants to continue his research - maybe with Jack - and learn French. Meet up at the end with Hardball and Nick in Marseilles maybe Monaco?

Ooh, and maybe start on some speedster tricks - quick study, speed reader, lightning calculator, etc... I figure Science would start with philosophy then on to Jack's biology and boomerang back into astronomy and physics before beginning some tinkering.

I figured Jack would be wandering somewhat aimlessly - probably starting with museums in France, actually, then moving on to Rome - and ending up in Prague without quite realizing he was heading there. I had sort of planned on glossing over that stuff and starting with him in Prague, thinking back about how he got there but I'm flexible.
