Yeah I'd thought about having it knock them all off, but the acceleration required for a jolt that big would be right out of line for a steam powered vehicle the size of the Child from a standing start.

I will be out of pocket this Friday night, and on through Sunday afternoon, as I will be attending the North Harris County Dulcimer Society's annual Fall Campout. I should be back by Sunday evening.

Hehe, seems my naturally suspicious nature is coming out in this setup. Whole darned thing was stinking of "Ambush" to me, but I'll go along for the ride.

I don't mean to try and take control of this RP; if anyone else has better ways to do things, I'm all for it, especially as concerns the GM. If I'm getting too Prima Donna-ish, or my handling of something is boring as hell and just can't work, please tell me so.

To wit: I'm aware that Percy's ballyhoo is a little over-the-top, but he is at heart a small-scale entrepreneur, and his (private) custom as per gunsmithing is dictated by being able to shout down the competition, and/or impress the customers -- so his 'ringmaster' act for a veritable Van Scagg's Circus of Memories, Legends, and Gunsmithing (lol) would come as second nature, in  my view.

Haha... you know I was actually expecting something like that from Rimfire, pretty much matched the persona I had imagined for such a character. Heck would be how I played him out. "If you can't bedazzle them with BS, then blow them away with a bazooka (or Blunderbuss as the case may be)."

No problem, it's been understandably unlikely (lol) that anyone could have posted for the last few days Wink. Just my two cents.

It'd be nice to have another participant, in my view. It's up to the others, though, ultimately.

((OOC:I may have 'bad' news in the offing...

This is not in any way related to recent occurrences in the Portrayal section, but it could potentially have a great effect on them on my end of things.  My doctor and I will be 'dicussing treatment' today (all very sudden, following labwork yesterday Huh).

It occurs to me that it could all fall out that I will not be able to continue this or the other RPs I am involved with; I will continue as long as I can, but if surgery or other extreme treatment is called for I will have to either take a break or discontinue altogether. Only time will tell. I'm sorry for any inconvenience this might cause to or for anyone.))

Hey, sorry once again. Er... sorry for just apologizing too.

Whenever I have time for this, my computer does not work. When it does seem to work I am bogged down with papers. I will be spotty around here.

As for new people - throw us some ideas!

MW - breaks are understandable. Keep us updated and we'll work something out.

Its a good thing my doc is so conscientious. The stuff below might sound like a rant, but it's actually in praise of my doctor, rather than a complaint.

Turns out its not surgery, not intensive insulin therapy (yet), but rather
1. Catastrophically too much fat (triglycerides)-stop eating fatty things, low-cal diet
2. bad sugar control - not so many carbs, etc.
3. for one and 2, see a dietician and follow the instructions assiduously.

Now: Here's the really odd part. You know how weight-loss people tell you to drink water when you're hungry, to take up space and such?? Well, it seems I took that a little too far. The doctor said my my Sodium was dangerously low; in essence, I had been drinking so much water that I had washed all of the salt from my system! It's actually more complex than that, but the low sodium result still works out the same, so number four is still:
4. Eat More Salt ... (No, I'm not kidding).

(please, don't take this as any sort of proof that salt is not harmful; remember, all medical cases are different .It should also be mentioned that I used to consume three sixpacks of cokes per day; my intake of water was partly to combat the cravings for diet colas. And they say they're not addictive... Undecided)

So...I suppose that I'm back, but I''m also to get much more exercise, so maybe I won't have as much time...we'll just have to see...

I'm not trying to bring Malc or Grim back, although the idea did occur to me (might be nice to have a wildcard entity out in the sands...). I just felt that the phantom cat stories should have at least a possible grain of truth, and if Grim supposedly survived, then maybe Malc did too. Or whatever. Or not...

I have no Idea what Percy found out about the route to York Atrium. maybe suggestions could be made...

What shall we do when we get to York Atrium?

Sorry about not being around much... end of school left me a bit drained for taking the time to work out fitting replies. I'll try to make a bit of an effort to get back into the story.
