All right, I think I've got the gist of what's been happening and where we're at.

Can I please:

1) have everyone sound off, let us know who's currently with us;

and

2) post anything in particular you'd like to see in upcoming events (diplomacy, boss battles, endless waves of mooks, puzzles, line dancing, etc)

Thanks!

1. I'm here.

2. I discussed this briefly with SNAFU before, but I'm planning on taking a high-level contact in Kingsdale and getting them apprised of what's been happening in Mexico, what Mexico is like, and most importantly, putting them and Colombia in contact as trade partners. There's no reason that two countries that can use magic to make trade rifts and exchange goods/services shouldn't be in contact. Colombian rocket-gun rounds should also be possible to produce with Kingsdale/Los Alamos level tech, which would be ground-breaking for North America if they can get the cost on each round lowered.

Of course, I have no idea who's going to talk to John when he goes running up there for a sitdown.

1) Murdoc is here

2) I'm open as to what's coming. Murdoc already had his big OCC change and is basically just learning to be a leader now.

Like Will says below, I'm ready to get through this mission that we've been on for 3 RL years and get back to Merctown. I could even do with a little fast forward or just a breeze through Columbia with a little more time spent in California. Or even a recall straight back to Merctown. As is there are only 3 current PCs that actually started this mission from Merctown.

1. William Virgil Summers here, ready for all your vanquishing needs!

2. I would like to battle endless waves of mooks, have boss battles, line dancing and... wait, what?

What I would love is to get through our current mission as planned, get paid and head back to MercTown. Additionally, I would like to fight some more undead, use my contact in Thirsty Pete to learn some more spells and find some PPE holding trinkets to up my game.

Wak is here!!!

I'm good with breezing through. Would like to finish as we have put a bunch of time into this trip. But I'm good either way. As you saw reading our backlog, Wak has been getting serious jobs for the Roughnecks from a true Sploog named Illnycryth, Nobody knows other than Will. Read Wak's background for how a CK began working with a Sploog. He is only doing it to fight Splynncryth. He also has the Aztec God Quetzacoatl as a powerful contact, also to fight Splynncryth. Those two loyalties are going to cause problems in the future. So for Wak anything fighting Sploogs is great.

Since it's only been a handful of days in-game but over two years of play since the Bruja was introduced -- and there are a number of players who onboarded after that point -- I provide for you these points:

“Yeah, I know of a nice jet. Hell, I got the keys to it right here.” Reaching into his pack, Kai pulls out Paid Bill’s device and shows it to Wakiza,“Can’t get it to work though. That’s what got me caught up with all those vamps before, I was out looking for the very same jet.” Spitting on the floor away from the group, the Operator continues, “Little blue fella’ from Naruni named Paid Bill is the one who got me down here. Used this thing to call his ride. Ole’ Bill disappeared from town not too long ago, ain’t that right Pete? Only thing is he left this behind. If ya’ll can figure out how to work it I guarantee you you have your jet.”


And...


The Roughnecks, including Pete and Pigtails, head out into the desert away from town. Once a suitable distance away, they attempt to summon Paid Bill’s jet. Sure enough, a dot appears in the sky and soon the alien plane has descended to your position.

There is a tense moment.when the jet starts shouting in a unknown language and looks to be ready to fire upon the group. Fortunately Thirsty P. fiddles with the bracelet device and manages to calm things down. After a few moments he’s got the craft responding to English commands. He explains the craft has an AI with drone-level intelligence and autonomy and will now respond to your commands. The jet lands and the group is ushered aboard.

Thirsty Pete christens the jet Lachuza Bruja.
