    As I recall, he was specifically shooting at a target other than you guys, which he hit and very nearly killed. Would have killed, if not for a couple of rather horrendously bad rolls. That was the one time he shot at something in the vicinity of us: the rest of the time, he was somewhere else and NOT shooting at us.

    My plane journey home starts tomorrow; updates will resume once I've landed, unpacked, etc. Those of you who haven't posted yet, I'll update regardless once I'm back on solid ground; if there are things you want to talk to these people about, you'll be losing out on talky time if you haven't posted by then.

    Oh, Red. Jericus. Must you alienate everyone? At this rate the only one who isn't biased against us will be the creepy guy from Solomon who is almost definitely a heretic of some sort, and maybe the Captain.

    He's got freaky eyes, he's being terribly secretive, he is here in the first place, the illustrious Max doesn't know how to describe him, and most damning of all, he is one of YOUR NPCs.

    I don't know what you guys are worrying about. I mean, what about this situation right now seems at all dangerous? This adventure is probably just going to turn into a seven-page game of bridge with Octavian and Eustacia.

    ANYWAY

    Bridge! That's terrible! Red doesn't know the rules! Does it involve overcoming fortifications? He's good at that.

    I don't know the slightest thing about bridge, either, come to think of it.

    I do know that I, for one, rather like Millie already.

    On a more relevant note, I've been a bit swamped which is why Tauron's not really contributing to the party atmosphere. Still paying attention though.

    Tauron's musings are of course his own and no reflection on how anyone else is contributing to the party atmosphere.

    Now now, Tauron. By no means did Tychon say 'well of course I shall make all haste to Malfi.' His was merely an agreeance to her insistance that he call on them if he should find himself heading over that way anyways.

    Heh, Tauron just interpreted that as a kind of "Oooh yeeeerrrrrsssss, we absolutely must have you around Mr Kastor, a pity you won't be crossing the vast light years in between any time soon," but in no way actually meant it as anything other than vacuous pleasantry. And what sort of yokel actually agrees to an invitation the first time around? It's like actually accepting a slice of cake the first time it's offered to you - it's just not done in polite society.

    If it's questioned, he can always play it off as being from Gunmetal, where things are a little more straightforward.

    Besides, the reply is "Why, if I ever have cause to cross the aforementioned vast light years, I may have to look you up in that case, should I happen to have the time away from my busy schedule of Being Rich."

    And Tychon likes cake, dammit.

    This is why there's that stereotype of British (and I guess Irish) people talking about the weather so much - it's just so gosh-darned unpredictable that it becomes interesting.

    There's a stationary front stretching across all 3000-plus miles of the US at about the same latitude as the Mason-Dixon Line. That usually indicates rainy conditions and heavy cloud cover.
    At least, that front was there the last time I checked, which was, admittedly, two nights ago, but Stationary Fronts tend to be, y'know, Stationary, and stick around for a while.

    That's weather worth talking about. =P

    I spent a few years living in Oklahoma as a kid. The weather could change dramatically, going from sunny to overcast with heavy rain in literally ten minutes or so. Worst part was the tornadoes. We had one night about 13 years ago where a couple of tornadoes spawned north of my town, merged into one massive tornado (we're talking a mile and a half wide funnel, about 2.5 km for you UK folks ), and spent 2 and a half hours tearing through the state from north to south. I got to hide out in a drainage pipe with my family for about thirty minutes (we didn't own a storm cellar, unfortunately) and got to see the edge of this thing pass within a mile or two of our house. The whole horizon was a vicious, swirling black cloud that moved ridiculously fast.

    And that's my interesting weather story.

    You don't understand. If the weather really was dramatic, you have to play it down and say it was nothing. It's only the unremitting drizzle of meteorological mediocrity which is worthy of comment under the Collingworth rules of conversation.

    *sips tea*

    *founds colony, exploits natives*

    *spontaneously combusts from playing up to a stereotype too much*

    EDIT: More on-topic... apologies, but the update's going to have to wait for tomorrow. I've been busy today and this needs to be a long one.

    Right, megapost is up.

    In order to make this auction work for PBP, what I'd like from you guys is, if possible, for you to tell me in advance which (if any) of the lots you want to bid on, or whether you want me to bring you into the bidding based on what any of the other bidders are doing. I'll then be able to make an update fast-forwarding through the bits you don't get involved in, showing you how the other bidders are behaving and bringing you straight up to your bit.

    IC, this is probably Tychon's decision, but I'm sure the lot of you probably have OOC suggestions to make about what to watch out for.

    Forgot to add (was posting fairly late last night) - as well as knowing what you're bidding on, it would be handy for me to know how you're going to bid. Stuff like

    > whether you'll bid from the outset or wait to take over when people start to drop out
    > what increments you want to bid in
    > what ceiling you want to bid to

    For any lot, at any point, you can tell me if you'd rather do it blow-by-blow (probably best for anything you think is very important, and if I come online at the same time as the bidder we can probably get it out of the way in a reasonable time), but for the rest, I think this system will work best.
