Re: OOC - The Second comming
More than happy to waffle on in character, but I don't think it's advancing the game any.   Fun, though.  ;>

Angrboda's players decision to hold off due to the time it'd take to get the info probably did slow us down, though I'd have done the exact same thing ... well, at least till I noticed the GM frowning at me !  <grins>

I do think Rael will be back if/when he can, but in the meantime we're just going to have to forge ahead and hope.

Unlike the earlier sections of the game (palace, ship, other ship, wizard's tower), the progression since we crossed paths with Not-Khazim has seemed a lot more linear - I've not found many options to decide 'left or right', it's more roleplaying with what's put in front of us.  Again, I'm not only happy to do that but enjoy it just as much, but it can cause things to bog down as it does require the GM to draw a line and move us on and that's a hard line to judge (I'm having the exact same problem in one of my D&D games, in fact, both with the current adventure path and having lost a couple of players - and having gone through the recruit/lose/recruit/lose cycle a few times it's hard to know what to do next).

To be honest, I'm very keen to go on, even with just the three of us active players, and don't mind at all if the pacing is slow.  Our GM's posts set up interesting bits and pieces to react to and I love all the other players characterizations, so what's not to love ?!!  :>

You have basically nailed it on the head with this.
Up to here there was always a town around the corner, or a person who you could have talked to, or some route you could have taken.

Here, not so. You have a single lead, a blatant bad guy chasing you, and everyone is gathered together. You've got "all" the keys but not sure what is next. The next section brings back the feeling of choices.

I didn't want to presume to move people forward without them being ready, at least in some capacity.

Re: OOC - The Second comming
Never assume we know what we're doing ! <grrrins>

Absolutely happy to move along whenever you feel the moment is right - if I'm enjoying roleplaying one scene, I'm more than certain I'll enjoy the next equally.  :>

I hope Rael comes back. It has been a long journey with him. Plus he has my flask. Lol.

Re: OOC - The Second comming
So in theory since we are a person down, Viktor has a better chance of doing something stupid and not dying.

Re: OOC - The Second comming
Which, by the perverse logic of the multiverse, means a better than average chance of getting the rest of us killed ! ;>

Re: OOC - The Second comming
ok, heads up. My department manager has steped down, which means until I get a replacement I've been/going to be extremely busy. On this Friday I'll be heading out of town for the weekend for a family event, only to turn around on Sunday night to head out of town for a business event. I'll try to get something updated by Friday.

Just wanted to give a heads up, since time ran away from me due to Easter

Re: OOC - The Second comming
Lot longer and lot more went on than I thought.
1 walk out, 2 quit, house full of sick people.
Time flew past with end of the school year events that I didn't know were happening.

Updating soon

Re: OOC - The Second comming
As if work wasn't hard enough.
A very good friend of mine died on Thursday morning.
I've been kind of busy helping with things.

Please give me a bit more time

Well there is the "how do we get out of here?"
Also the ever popular "Why are we here?"
or "How do I get rid of these darned Demon things?"

"How do we get our companion back?"
"How do we control Not-Khazim?" if you want to make a friend.

I'm kind of back. Things are just hard all the way around right now. School is now out for my kids, the Birthday is done, and they are all about to go on vacation.

Re: OOC - The Second comming
I really miss Rael. How many years has it been now? Angrboda joined right after our demon hearts. The fight scenes first meeting Berta were the most intense.
