Have we survived? Can we recover?
As we near herd imunity in the States and hopefully everywhere else as well, I am left wondering:

Is this game a casualty of the pandemic, or is there still enough interest to go on?

I would love to go on. My creative flow is threatening the dam between Imagination Reservoir and Right-Thinking River. No one wants to see what would happen to Public Behavioria if the reservoir floods.

I have been thinking about other worlds/games, so if this one dies I will take some time to open up my D&D 3.0ish Here There be (Half) Dragons campaign.

We appear to have lost nearly everyone. I have contact with some of our players throu discord, and a few of them have current issues for the next two weeks. I will try again after that.

I'm down for Torg!  I'll just dust off my mathematical equations.

I am still around, and I liked Koharu as a concept, at least.  I have to admit that I was having a harder time than I expected getting used to old TORG again.

True. Classic is more different from Eternity than even I had thought.

Excelente!

We have enough to continue:ish.

I will look at who what and where we are tonight and by tomorrow I will post in game to get us started again.

I know some of us still have those pesky RealLife bites to treat, so hopefully we can all continue to be patient...

Particularly as someone did request I launch my 3.0 Half-Dragon campaign, which has picked up some traction.

I like the idea of the format of the game, but it didn't jump out at me like I had hoped. And now that in-person gaming is starting to become a greater possibility, I think Whistler may be best relegated to a helpful NPC. Or maybe it's transformed to Nippon and will betray the group. Either is good.

I am sad to hear this as I enjoyed whistler as a character and you as a player.

My despair is mitigated by the [Redacted] and now I don't have to [Redacted]. But despite the headaches that were coming at me, I will miss Whistler as a PC.

Thanks. Whistler was certainly a fun concept. May or may not be an NPC in a game of my own. Who knows? Maybe it'll have a goatee and be the evil Nile Whistler.

I don't know where we sit right now.

It has been over a week since our last post. I was diagnosed with "Wedunnowat srongwichu" and have been attempting to deal with it.

I count 3 characters actively posting, one of whom is not slated to continue into the next Act, and 2 players waiting to bring their characters online.

I was expecting 1 post a week from each player, hoping for a post every 3 days, and had 1-or-more posts daily on my wishlist. Is there anyone who does still want to go on who cannot commit to at least 1 post a week?

I was expecting more 'story' to happen, to give me something to react to.
Especially with the "assuming no one else is attacking this round, I will post Villains turn tonight. Then next round." that you ended your last post with.

But if that is all we are getting to work with, I can make a post in the next day or so.

You have a point.

I was hoping to have other players chime in, and forgot I had set a deadline already. Anyone who has my Discord, reach out and tap me if I don't have the Villains' turn posted in 3 hours.
