There should be one (and only one) female character -- I apologize if this is intrusive. It's for reasons of plot, not because I'm imposing a gender quota. :)

Jen was thinking of playing a female paleontologist.

Primarily a sailor, yes, but somewhat of an arctic guide as well so he is accustomed to ice flows/blockage, glacial exploration, things of that nature.

Realistically, you would be interviewed separately, but that would bog the game down.

Like I said in my invite, this campaign pretty much requires a high posting rate because it's immense and detailed. That means that if a player doesn't post for a day or so, I'll turn the character into a kind of NPC that sits around and looks cool.

OK peeps, here is what's about to happen.

Vladimir and Bertie will get letters in a couple of weeks congratulating them on being accepted (you are given to understand that there will be no salary attached, unfortunately). They are to arrive in New York (if they aren't there already) on September 1. Rooms will be booked at the Amherst Hotel for them (where you just were). You will take part on the final preparations for the expedition and meet the other members. Then, when things are ready, you will set sail.

Cecily will receive a stiffly-worded letter thanking her for her interest, but she has been declined. At the bottom of the letter has been written in pen, "apologies Dr. Winthrop. My regrets. J.S. is old-fashioned. W. Moore."

This does not mean that she is out of the adventure -- no, it is as plot demands! ;) She will come in later.

In the meantime, I suggest the following.

1. Vlad and Bertie will move to September 1 and play from that point.

2. Cecily, not about to let things rest, investigates the fate of the Miskatonic Expedition in July and August as well as she can from the US.

At the appropriate point, I will combine the two arcs.

Sound good?

Happy New Year, all!

Opposite pole, but I thought this had some interesting stuff about the stuff people see in the snow...

I've got two threads going now, but you should probably read both so as not to have to do a lot of catching up later when the two are brought together.

I can be as detailed as you want with the introductory bit -- describe everything that happens on the pier step by step, or summarize it.

As you choose.
