You are totally right.
I think post 20306 would show why I thought it was Artemis, but that has now been fixed.
Sorry about any confusion!!!!!July 9, 2019 at 5:38 pm #20570
Yeah, that was my bad: I mixed up my greek godesses: Demeter is the nurturing one.July 9, 2019 at 5:46 pm #20575
Yeah – that’s why I wanted to make sure we got it right which goddess it was – in Jack’s runs, everything has a meaning….July 10, 2019 at 10:44 am #20588
Preston may be reaching out to his drugs contact to see if he can get some items quickly enough, but I don’t have the books on hand to look up availability codes to see if he has any shot of getting them that quickly. If needed I’ll put that post into the past tense once we are in the air.July 10, 2019 at 12:19 pm #20591
Or we could just slow down, if you need.
I’m just keeping things moving.
In game time, hurrying.
But in RL time, heck, I can do a dozen posts just on the road north.
Just let us know when you are ready to post to the plane.July 10, 2019 at 1:28 pm #20595
No flight plans were filed for the drone – it’s low profile and can land on virtually any kind of landing strip – including dirt roads.

Ah sorry, I misunderstood… never mind, Lily didn’t see it anyway so was making assumptions based on what she was told 😏July 11, 2019 at 9:58 am #20661
no drug purchases. Delivery times would be too long.July 14, 2019 at 5:38 pm #20731
@jack_spade: how do you want us to handle Al’s suggestion of online shopping? Want us to make a list for your approval? Make some rolls?July 15, 2019 at 12:35 am #20732
Make the lists, as long as there is nothing too outlandish, it should be no problem to get it on short noticeJuly 15, 2019 at 9:49 am #20751
Do people have ideas on what sort of gear we’ll want for Panama, besides generic survival kits? I forget if Run and Gun has specialized warm weather gear? (and … anyone have odds on whether we end up pursuing him into space somehow?)
Just a side note regarding Al’s observation: For about 90% of Forty’s creation the character was going to be male. I think Forty was still a ‘he’ even when I concluded that mystic adept without spellcasting worked better than pure summoner. But eventually I got stuck on the part of the backstory where there is about ten years in a prison unit mostly filled with orcs and trolls suffering from goblinization trauma (many did not come through that process in a healthy way) — I just couldn’t design him tough enough to seem likely to have survived that environment. It eventually occurred to me that women’s prisons generally have lower levels of violence, so force of personality and an occasional ‘curse’ (spirit use) might go farther there. I tweaked the back-story and made the gender switch. But the character personality never changed much in my head, which has actually turned out to be kind of fun to play. But on her I’ve always felt the charisma was more like mob boss sense of menace than classical beauty (although I’ve been toning down the psycho aggression and violence in name of better group play).July 15, 2019 at 10:35 am #20755
As a matter of fact, when I mentally inventoried the adult females Al has worked with, Forty did come to mind as a possible exception to the “all smoking hot” pronouncement. But that would be in the eyes of the world. The fact is that, strictly in terms of outward appearance (they didn’t really get to know one another well), Forty was one of the most physically attractive to Al of all the women he’s worked with. Her rough, butch look and attitude were very much to his personal taste.
Long way of saying, yeah, I see she could have been an exception, but in fact from his point of view she actually was not.
Echoing Aria’s question, how micro-manage-ey do you want us to be with the jungle environment prep? Al is an expert – I am not. A Survival Kit theoretically abstracts all that stuff away without us diving into real-life jungle survival guides for lists of essential gear….July 15, 2019 at 10:44 am #20756
Adam: oh, much of the world no doubt thinks Forty is hot, I just think it is interesting how different paths lead to similar character designs. (and then there is Al …)July 15, 2019 at 1:28 pm #20758
Don’t sweat it – by which I mean: Describe that you are sweating and swatting flies left and right and call it a day 😉July 15, 2019 at 2:47 pm #20760
@jack_spade… what about things that go bang? I was thinking of the latest Colt with enviro mod, sns rnds and a sound suppressor??July 15, 2019 at 3:40 pm #20761
Do you have a contact to supply you with that? If yes, have at it 🙂July 15, 2019 at 5:56 pm #20767
Cannon should be able to deal with that easily enough, will try and get it marked up on my sheet when I have a minuteJuly 15, 2019 at 6:01 pm #20769
Given Jack’s reply on not stressing specific jungle survival gear, Al has everything he needs in the Gaz, including a survival kit. I may fluff comments on specific jungle items, but not for any game effect if it’s not on my sheet.
