Sorry for the long delay, my friends. I've just arrived back in my home state. I'll have a post for group #1 out tomorrow, then Cass's post and a post for group #2. Lots to do, but I'll do my best.

I think this was clear in your description but Rott's gang members haven't started firing at us yet? It hasn't escalated into an all-out gunfight with Mack and Taryn, right?
@OppositionHey, I hate to impose, but I've hit a bit of a writers block. I can't really think of anything for Alton to do in this case(Though that might be due to some frazzled nerves) Would me acting be needed, or could we advance the scenario anyways.
Sorry for taking so long to get my post out I feel like that really damaged the flow of the RP.

Nah, it’s alright. It’s all on me atm.

Alright. As it seems like we've lost Hour Error, I'm going to go ahead and say we'll proceed without them. I've edited the last Delilah post and story post with small bursts of information directing Taryn to join them. If you could make your next post a transition to the Old Rail Stop, that'd be fantastic. We can just say you arrived shortly after Cass and Mackwell did. Thanks for the help with this one.
The essence of the debate should be what you'd expect. Things aren't going to get really dynamic until after the next round of posts, as I wanted to see what the players would make of the world, what they'd do/create, etc.
The square is obviously full of people from all over the Reclaim Zone. Derelicts, vagrants, gangers, and politicians alike are all conglomerated in rallies or by food stands, etc. The stage is cleared by a very small team of security guards, though it seems what is most holding the people back is apathy. Perhaps I should have written a little more to set the scene.
Either way, my only intent for you guys at this point is to step into your character and find what they might be doing in the world. As hectic as things are right now, this is kind of a lull in the action that is yet to come, so take the time to establish what Proctor would do in this time. Feel free to create some sort of encounter for yourself. I can help with any NPCs if you'd like, but you're free to do with Central Square and the crowd in general what you'd wish. There's plenty of different sorts of people you could interact with, and like I always say when it comes to Futility, the world is moving around the players. There's always things you could be looking into, finding out more about, and investigating to get more information or uncover new plots.
Hope that helps.
