Re: Horsemen of the Apocalypse 3 - OOC
I'd like to clarify, which vision did Mika show?  The whole thing or part of it?

Re: Horsemen of the Apocalypse 3 - OOC
Just to let everyone know, we are moving to Ontario next week.  On Monday our container arrives for our stuff, on Wednesday we fly to Ontario and stay at Sarah's house for a couple weeks.  I shouldn't be internet absent for too long during this time.

The parts where there is a clear-ish view of the mountain, lake and the village. Trying to convey landmarks more than anything.

Re: Horsemen of the Apocalypse 3 - OOC
So just for the sake of clarification, the Ethiopian highlands are to the north of our position, and are the rocky, rough terrain you mentioned in IC, and then there is a desert region south of that composed of various Death cults and demons, right?

Just trying to ascertain in which direction we'd best focus our attention while looking for the vision location; a desert seems like the opposite of a place Famine would want to go as there isn't much there to starve versus more abundant terrain. Though I'm not sure if it is up for climbing up the mountains either. May be worth doing some recon on the foothills as we draw near.

Also, to focus our efforts in question locals I imagine we should ask if they've heard of villages or homesteads being affected by unusually poor crops or loss of livestock. And likewise scout teams should be on the lookout for any animals or persons that have seemingly died of exposure or starvation, as opposed to violence.

Re: Horsemen of the Apocalypse 3 - OOC
If you look at the game map (the one with topography), your group is in eastern Uganda, north of the large lake.  You are traveling towards Ethiopia, which is almost entirely mountains.

Everything north of Uganda, Kenya, Ethiopia is the Phoenix Empire.  The capital city of the Phoenix Empire is in Egypt near the Mediterranean at a ley line nexus.

Also, Chad, Sudan, Libya, Egypt, are almost entirely Sahara desert.

Are we waiting on anything in particular to move on?  I was just waiting for the IC to indicate you guys were ready.

I'm good. I think Mike is pre occupied with a move, so may not hear much from him in the mean time.

Re: Horsemen of the Apocalypse 3 - OOC
I think you can move on.

In my experiences with PbP games there are going to be lots of times that the GM just has to move the story along during lulls. In the other one I am currently a part of the GM has to do this probably at least once a week to keep the game moving along. To much RPing in every situation tends to bog down the flow of the story and stall things in a PbP game. In a game where everyone is playing at the same time it rarely if ever happens, but in this medium it is almost a must.

I put forth the question because I was worried one or more people might have been away. :)  And I confirmed it.

As an update for me, we are still trying to get our house livable and are still in the process of "moving".  Hopefully Mike will let us know soon when he's available again.

Re: Horsemen of the Apocalypse 3 - OOC
I'm going to be all over the place for the next month as I slowly move to Houston. I'm flying there tomorrow morning for a 1.5 weeks, then back in Calgary for a wedding on the weekend of the 13th. After that I'm hoping to make the final move to Houston near the end of August; driving my stuff down. That plan's schedule is tentative at the moment though.

My internet at my apartment in Houston should be hooked up come Wednesday, so I should be connected while there... internet before a bed or seats or cookware, priorities.

And yeah, I had nothing more to contribute to the conversation.

Re: Horsemen of the Apocalypse 3 - OOC
I'm dealing with a lot of crazy myself right now.  We got our stuff brought to the house only to find that both of our containers had been flooded with over an inch of water.

So we basically lost nearly all of our furniture and are dealing with damages to a bunch of other stuff as well.  In the meantime, I also had to unload two shipping containers in one day and we are now trying to unpack everything into the house in a totally disorganized and hectic fashion.  So... still moving.

Anyway, I will be trying to continue this as I can, but moving like this has been difficult to say the least.

I totally understand Erik. Once you are settled we can move the game forward.

So I know we were kind of moving to start this up again, is that plan delayed now?

Re: Horsemen of the Apocalypse 3 - OOC
So after reading through the posts from July, the 4 person recon team would be Sophes, Vrryl, Jessica and Mika, correct? Would be easy enough to change that up to just the 3 of us since Gabe's not around though.

Re: Horsemen of the Apocalypse 3 - OOC
I agree.

I have no issues with the character tagging around in the background, but I dunno if you want that headache Erik.

Good start Mike.

Anyone else have preparations to make?
