Athene Shoe:
We'll be doing what we did last year?  Clair, Amanda and Athene arrive at the station together?  With Amanda's parents and Clair's Da?


Sound's good.  Although Amanda will be with her housekeeper rather than her parents.  It's a weekday, so her Mother will be in the Netherlands and her father will be quite busy as well.

Feel free to start us off if you'd like or I'll do so sometime tomorrow.

By the way I go to Kings cross station quite often. And these aren't from the books or movies, they are from the real world kings cross:

Re: Still yet another O.O.C.
Snape, could you please remind me how many people can comfortably sit in one of the train compartments.  If I remember correctly, it was 6, but that may have changed.

Also, does it seem as though Beth, Jade, and Akane are basically just stopping by to say hi before heading on to another compartment or are they actually coming in, sitting down, etc?  If they are in the corridor, Amanda had been planning to make an excuse not to invite them in since she still hasnít had a chance to ask James about something she doesnít want to discuss in front of the visiting students. But, if they are in and sitting, that would be quite rude.

Re: Still yet another O.O.C.
Compartments still seat six... comfortably. Jade and Beth are probably just chatting, but who know! I cannot speak for Akane.

Re: Still yet another O.O.C.
I'd not sit down unless invited

Actually to be honest I'd misses that we were on the train. I thought we were still on the platform. Ah well thats my bad

Re: Still yet another O.O.C.
Ah, since Robert had posted walking past our compartment twice, Iíd gone with the assumption that Amanda, Athene, and Claire had started the conversation on the platform and then it had extended into the train.  But, having it take place on the platform does make a bit more sense and Iím certainly fine with going with the majority and modifying my assumption.  I donít think Iíd even need to edit any of my posts.

Re: Still yet another O.O.C.
Yes, let's keep it all on the station platform, that works better. GLad to see Akane is still with us!

Re: Still yet another O.O.C.
Thought I'd go ahead and give my usual heads up.  I'll be going home to Colorado on Monday and staying for approximately two weeks.  I'll have access to my Mom's computer of course.  But, I may not be checking in as regularly (or at all on the days I'm actually driving to and from Colorado).

Re: Still yet another O.O.C.
I told the GM I would find it hard to post for a bit... but I have just realised I didn't post here.

I'm traveling for the next few days (lots and lots of planes, trains and automobiles) That's why I haven't been posting much this week.

I should be fine from about Monday onwards

Re: Still yet another O.O.C.
Woo, train event officially started. See about that. I a also being inspired to try a different setup for the IC threads this year so that we can have a slightly less linear story that allows for a bit more fluff playing on the side. We'll see how the idea works.

First, we gotta get to Hogwarts!

Re: Still yet another O.O.C.
I like the train event.  Don't worry Jade, Amanda has a plan. Mind you I don't know whether or not it will succeed, but if it does, Evony will be elsewhere soon.

Can we get a quick compartment roster? I just want to make sure I've got our current configuration clear...

Re: Still yet another O.O.C.
I believe Shimazu was in the girl's compartment as well.

quote:
Beth was sitting somewhat uncomfortably between Akane and Jade.


On the other side, we have Amanda next to the window, Claire by the door, and probably Kiri in the middle.

Re: Still yet another O.O.C.
Updated (thanks as always to my external memory aids, also my players):

First compartment: Evony, Akane, Beth, Jade, Claire, Kiri, Amanda
Second Compartment: James, Robert, Athene, Ganiah, Egil

This should be correct and actionable.

Sorry, been neglectful! I am about to borrow a trick from a friend and open an IC but casual chatter type thread. Feel free to converse and get some dialogue going, okay?

Re: Still yet another O.O.C.
Do we converse in the new thread ?

By the way... nearly at 1000! (it still matters... you can't click [all] at the top and use Ctrl-F to search if you go over the limit)
