AND LOOK OUT FOR THOSE FLAMING FLYING SKULLS!

Damn, what I would give for some Power Armor and a Jump Pack right now.

Darker

With the rope anchored, shouldn't he be safe and allow us to take a 20? Even if we fail to pull him up, the rope shouldn't go anywhere.

In a perfect world, that would be the case. But since so many things are far from ideal, such as the fact that the rope is not actually even a rope or that it's secured only to a wall-mounted room AC unit, I'm allowing for the chance that something detrimental could well happen. At the end of the day, Brett is hanging 15 stories from the ground from a bed sheet.

Darker

Well, then we better pull him up.

I rolled 1d20, the result is 20 = 20.
Darker

Darker just hulked out. Brett is safe in the room.

I'm guessing you were showing off for Crim. Seeing as how she's unattached.

I rolled 1d20, the result is 1 = 1.

I have no idea what just happened. I think my weakness is getting to me.

I am going to go lay back down in the bed.

I believe I understand the plan, and it's not a bad one, I think. But the nightstand might not be heavy enough to do what you want it to, and I think that once you lifted it, you'd probably know that. There might be other things in the rooms that could work, if you want to search around.

Darker

Search around I will.

Making with a check for that, or...?

Darker

Until time becomes a limit commodity and we aren't waiting for people to heal or have a better idea, assume all checks that can be, are 20's.... and searching can be a 20 (unless I'm wrong).

I will make a check for a nap.

I am very good at napping.
I rolled 1d20+20, the result is 18, 20 = 38.

We're gonna take a short pause for a few days (a few MORE days). With Ed being awol and Jeff having had a family issue that's holding him back, I'm just gonna ask everyone to hold a pattern for a few days until we make a return to something more like normal.

Rather than take silence for assent, I figured I'd confirm my understanding. I'm looking forward to Ed's triumphant return and resuming this game. I don't want to die in Atlanta!

Darker

Ditto... and if I do die there, I want it to be in a car jacking... or perhaps a nightclub shooting... or a slow death after collecting a critical mass of STD's from marta hookers. You know, something worthy of an atlanta death.

I eagerly await the return of the prodigal son.

I am back in it whenever.

I've spent a lot of time thinking about this character. I've actually shed countless tears trying to imagine one iota of how i would feel in this situation. I know what I would do and I didn't want to do it because I wanted her to keep trying.
With recent circumstances I've had to change. That happens to us all with time and grief. I'm not this character anymore. I can't be. Instead I have to let her do exactly what I knew she would do.
I also can't bear to play her anymore. I can't pretend anymore.
I have no right to ask anyone to do anything they wouldn't so. I only ask that you let this avatar of me die peacefully so I can get back to working on my personal life.
This avatar is not one that can live her life without Matt. I'm forced to live with the fact that he doesn't want me to share his life. Trying to play this character is too cruel for me. I doubt I'll be able to play in any future games on this site.
Thank you for all the good times and good bye.

I understand and respect your decision. In time, if you feel like returning to the site, you will be welcome.

Matt, if the game is a chore to run, we can retire it. A summary that tells us how we eventually die (or escape) would give some much appreciated closure. But I'm up for continuing!

I hope one day you will decide to return, KC. Take care.

Fixxxer

I've been giving it a lot of thought and I think I'm ready to retire things. As Jeff can attest, I've been in a spot recently where I'm not in the best headspace for the responsibility of running a game. And with both KC and Talanall being absent, it just feels like the whole thing is falling apart.

What say you, guys?

Darker

Well, I'm happy to hold it and I'll unhappily agree to axe it. I'm going to start up my bayou/swampy themed game soon, so it'll provide me with some RP entertainment and Tal's game will surely start back once he returns. So... do what you got to do.

It's cause I'm not giving you enough sweet loving, isn't it? Using this game as leverage for even more sexual favors, especially after I did that thing that I swore I'd never do (but you were right - I did like it), well I'd say that's despicable, but it's making me kinda hot...

Darker

Oh, I think you can give even more. You won't be done until he has you in the gimp mask and chained up in the basement. And that's when the real fun starts.

I came here to say this, but he got to it first.

If your head/heart isn't in it, I am willing to wait until they are. If you seriously feel like you need to end it, then do so, but only AFTER you write up a lengthy epilogue entry as to what happens to us. I need to know if we get out or die, or get to the roof and get stranded with some sort of "to be continued."

I can't handle another "In a World of Dead People" nothing-gets-resolved endings. :( Don't do that to me. Also, when you are ready to run it, I am ready to be your Saltser. I will always be your Saltser, sweet thing.

Darker

I CAN tell you that if we run out of food and can't get out, I will cannibalize you bitches. Zombies don't get to be the only ones chowing down. From William Seabrooks description, human meat sounds delicious.

"It was like good, fully developed veal, not young, but not yet beef...
It was mild, good meat with no other sharply defined or highly
characteristic taste such as for instance, goat, high game, and pork
have. The steak was slightly tougher than prime veal, a little stringy,
but not too tough or stringy to be agreeably edible. The roast, from
which I cut and ate a central slice, was tender, and in color, texture,
smell as well as taste, strengthened my certainty that of all the meats
we habitually know, veal is the one meat to which this meat is
accurately comparable."
