Happy Saturday from the cargo bay!

If you're following our chat thread or IC posting (as you damned well should be,) you'll see the happy news that @Aalakrys has returned to the fold! Once again, China Doll has her pilot and we can push forward with the current episode.

Mind you, it wasn't easy. There were lawyers, tense negotiations, and grovelling. Wolf lets me do that part.

Before any of you get ideas, Penelope's new, larger trailer on set is not a show of preferential treatment. Neither are the catered meals and the daily car service. Ahem.

Seriously though, it brings us no small joy to welcome her back aboard China Doll. Now, let's go have fun.

The join status says "Apply". If that is accurate, you may see me CS proposal by tomorrow. Regardless, I'm loving the web you all are weaving. It's been an entertaining read thus far. Well done!

Happy Sunday, y'all!

A quick note about the coming week. With two of our writers traveling all week, we'll roll IC time through the last of Day 2 Night and into Day 3 Morning. The Skyes have got rave related posts coming that will be our cue to begin Day 3 writing.

So, the advice for the day?

"Keep your eyes on the Skyes."

Someone stop me before I say "You can't take the Skyes from me..."

WWIF,

Hey folks,

I've been summoned to the corporate mothership for just over a week of "on call" duty. Will be leaving Monday, and returning Wednesday the following week. While my office days are going to be typical, it'll be the evenings and the weekend that are in question. Will write and chat as I can.

There's no reason to slow the plot down if the deckhand and the potential mechanic can't play along. Please push into Day 3 night and Hook's Bar Hop with the crew!

My family was home Friday evening from vacation. Wednesday, the day we went skiing was 52 degrees and sunny. This might appear a good thing, but for winter sports, 25 degrees is the ideal temperature. I was dressed for a cold day and ended up sweating, it was so warm. On Friday, it was 12 degrees and it snowed. A drive that should have taken three and a half hours was four and a half hours due to the road conditions.

When we got home, I was unable to clear the driveway. The wife said it was going to be warm this weekend. Let the sun melt it. By Saturday, the snow on the driveway turned to ice. My son and I attempted to "score" the driveway with lines to help the sun do its thing. It took over an hour to just cut a few lines into the driveway. The weather was just uncooperative. Could have used the cold snowy day on Wednesday and the warm sunny day on Friday.

I have two other Roleplays ahead of this one that require my attention. I normally limit myself to one or two but am up to three at the moment. I do intend to make a simple post; a recap if you wish before the bar crawl on Day #3.

The weekend was productive at home, but not on RPG.

Happy Friday from the cargo bay!

With the weekend looming ahead in just a few hours, we're glad to move the game toward Day 3 Evening.

Here's what I'm aware of happening:

Abby's getting the 4-1-1 on some family history from Hap at his place.
Gunther's Pub Crawl/Family Gathering is happening as a crew wide JP/collab.

A little bird told me that there's a JP in the works for Pen and Cyd. Not sure if that's a Day 3 night thing or not.

We'll be dropping the link for the pub crawl into your chats by either tonight or early tomorrow. All crew and passengers are invited to join in!

WWIF,

Happy Mothers Day from the cargo bay!

It's been a week, and we've got the writing to show it. Everybody made it home from Bungalow Bill's in one piece. Cyd had her table dance interrupted by what looks to be some serious work. Pen's reunion with her father has resulted in her departing the boat for a Happily Ever After.

Unfortunately, it's not all roses. Driven by an inner demon, Hook went looking for a fight which left a bike gang's 'money man' lying dead in an alley. Exercising their connections, the Headhunters MC did the math. In this case, 2+2= China Doll. They came around, looking for payback, and found Abby.

After looking over the scene at the foot of the ramp, Cal ordered Rex to call an emergency meeting of all crew and passengers. Y'all head for the galley to hear how it is.

@Aalakrys has chosen to leave the game. She will be missed, and we hope that she finds nothing but happy writing along her road.

ALL HANDS JP/COLLAB: As mentioned, Cal has summoned everyone to the galley to talk about navigating the rough times ahead. This week, we'll be sending doc invites for each of you.

So, it's Mothers Day. If your mom's still in the picture, show her some love. If you are a mom (or mom to be), here's hoping you get to put your feet up and relax for a change! On our front, I cooked breakfast for my Beloved, and will soon deliver her to worship from her adult children.

Adult children...an oxymoron if ever I've heard one.

WWIF,

Happy Sunday, all. I hope everyone is enjoying a great weekend. Like Abby, I'm currently being held against my will in our Dallas corp. offices. With an insane level of business and scraping the bottom of the barrel for backup resources, I can assure you that I feel every bit as black and blue as our deckhand's face at the moment. It's been a crazy, crazy week.

Likewise within our 'verse. While this week's departures were abrupt and not on the best of terms, I will remind everyone that what we do here is a game, a world of respite for busy adults who wish to escape the pressures of life in 2022. In that spirit, I offer my sincere hope that wherever our former shipmates clear timber and set up camp, the place they create rewards them with the same joyful respite.

And now back to our regularly scheduled program.

I know there's a time sensitive JP in the offing. After that will come the shipwide JP for Cal to drop the 411. If work releases me from its' clutches at a reasonable time tonight I'll fire up a doc and send invites. In the meantime, Yuri will find his way to the galley, as will Ms. Wyman, our NPC passenger. And we will doubtless see the first installment of "The Perils of Abigail Travis" unfolding when I get time to live in my right frontal lobe.

Quoting Stan Lee: "nuff said." WWIF.

Happy Sunday from the cargo bay!

So, as folk are gathering in the galley, we caught a glimpse of Abby's current situation.

BTW, doc invites went out for the shipwide JP/collab. Check your emails, and you'll also find a link in the game chat. Yuri and Edina left tags for Alana there. No reason we can't get some good conversation rolling in the galley while the bridge JP gets wrapped up.

So, once these two JP's are posted, expect a few time skips. I have been told that Abby might have a post or two from aboard the Headhunters' ship 'Road Angel,' so there will be opportunities for everyone to post inflight. As we've always said in the past, "we've got a plan, but if you've got a character subplot that needs more time in the black, let us know and we'll do everything we can to help make it happen."

We're also easing toward summer. If you've got any major vacation plans (or if one of us is becoming a new mom,) let us know your dates and we'll work on different scenes while you're away. As for myself, while I'm sure there might be a long weekend somewhere, my next real time away won't happen til mid October...because hurricane season is the best time to rent a beach house.

I never claimed wisdom or intelligence. WWIF.

@Xandrya Good luck with your last few months. I know these can be trying. Especially being 8-9 months pregnant when it is very HOT outside. I feel your pain.

My family is taking a vacation to Maine from 10 - 16 July. We rented a house by a lake. I plan to go fishing, hiking, canoeing, swimming and reading books. I am also bringing my laptop. I hope to have time to work on my book. I actually wrote about a thousand words this past week. I am back up to 71,000+ words. I lost 2500 when my flash drive got ruined this past winter. Yea, I now save my book to One Drive (Cloud). With that said, I should be able to post even though I'll be in another state. This vacation is meant to be relaxing. Oh yea, my kids are bringing their AD&D books and dice. They expect me to be the DM. Yea!

Now I need to come up with some adventure ideas for this campaign to Maine. My daughter typically plays a rogue (thief), like her old man and my son plays some sort of a melee/warrior class. Maybe I can talk them into playing two characters at the same time? Anyone want to come to Maine for a week this summer?

Sounds like a good trip. Another reason I'm sticking to the home front this summer is the dearth of overdue projects on my plate. With luck, I'll get them caught up and be back on schedule to put the house on the market in a couple years.

Happy Memorial Day weekend from the cargo bay!

I hope you've all got the benefit of a three day weekend. I learned at the last minute that my wife was dragging me from one social gathering to the next. Today, it's a pool party. Truth be told, I don't do particularly well in large group events like this. I'm usually the guy you'll find in the back corner, playing with the dog. Trouble is, today's hosts don't have pets. "Hey, how about that sports team?" Pray to your chosen deity for me...

We've received a couple of CS's that I really enjoyed. As of now there are two prospective characters looking to join the boat. Wolf and I will compare notes when we're both back in the world. Another great reason for us to go full afterburners toward Osiris. More on that soon.

Speaking of, your writing in the bridge and galley JP segments has been nothing short of amazing. We are so close to dropping the final posts and hightailing it to the black, with just a couple tags remaining. We'll hold the door open for contribution to both through the Memorial Day holiday. Both will post as soon as they're complete or on this coming Tuesday, whichever comes first.

Greenleaf to Osiris is just over 3.5 days' flight time. To speed things along, we'll engage in a time skip or two. The determining factor is you. If you've got a great post in mind or a character subplot that needs inflight development, let us know and we'll work in all the time you need.

In the meantime, here's wishing you and yours a time to rest and recharge. It's been a terrible week that's left us all feeling degrees of sorrow and helplessness. While the underlying issues of Uvalde and other similar acts of violence are both thorny and divisive, I know that we all are feeling the weight of this senseless tragedy, and the frustration of not knowing how to react in a meaningful fashion. My suggestion is simple. Let's start by being good to one another.

WWIF,

sail

Thanks for that, Sail. I've been buried pretty deeply under some personal life things (nothing abnormal, just work and required play) this last week or so, but I do know of at least one solo-ish post (thank you Sam) that I want to add while we're in the black. I'll get to writing so I can add it in before we make it to Osiris.

Hope everyone is well!

Did you need to collaborate anything in the cargo bay with Hook? I sent you a PM regarding my notes. I'm going to start writing now.
