yeah!! I can go next since I made the dumb riddle lol

is anyone opposed to sb'ing style posts? they don't have to be as long as the tsunami posts! it just moves things along

you can stick to rp style if it's easier though :)

As much I've enjoyed doing this with y'all, unfortunately I don't think I'm going to be able to do it anymore. Feel free to use Moira as an NPC -- looking forward to seeing the ending you all come up with!

ACK. Sorry about the late response! this slipped under my radar >_>

First, I wanna poke @Valkyria - how are you feeling about wrapping this RP? I feel like I just wanna keep going because we're kinda ish close to the end, but I know I haven't been motivated >_<

I haven’t been thinking about this role play since LSS ended, but we are almost at the end. Let’s push through and close this role play.

YAY!!!

Um...Rp is fun but I think if we want to end this quick SB is probably the way to go.

Loved that post, especially that last bit with supernatural. So I think maybe in the next one we probably find a way to get some food because it must be at least noon by now and then set out for this mountain thing perhaps? Then in the post after that they take a nap and that's when the crazy nightmares start? Or perhaps they could start right away as day dreams while going up the mountain?

Hmm. Potentially the characters could split up, but I can see Susan being especially apprehensive about this idea. I'm thinking por que no los dos and they head towards the mountains and happen to find food on the way? maybe forage some berries or fruits or nuts or something like that. I'm sure Eliza will know which are and aren't edible, and maybe stops Susan from eating poisonous berries lol

And then maybe they find out that the food near this settlement makes them sleeeeeepy and then they have short dreams, and then they wake up and are paranoid as HECK. because the dreams were all about each other? And then they fight and I can see Susan/Eliza calming Jack/Moira down and convince them that they gotta keep going up the mountain, and then they end up in a tomb area at the top... while they all go crazy lol.

just spit ballin ideas!! @HarryHardy @Valkyria

Those are great ideas! Since this is the final leg of the journey, I would like the characters to stay together unless they’re finding food. They could split up to find berries and come back so Eliza could determine which is safe.

And I’m thinking, they could have nightmares about each other or their friends and family. Akuji would probably know they’re there to stop him, so of course he’ll have to stop them first.

Ooh, maybe he can conjure up images of like, Olivia or Susan’s dad and either manipulate our heroes or make them feel hopeless.

Those ideas sound great!! So the next post could be them finding this mountain and then getting hungry halfway up or something so they split up. Then maybe some hilariousness as Susan tries to eat all the poisonous things and then eating...and post ends with them falling asleep for a bit leading to all our crazy nightmares?

that sound good!! we don't need to split up but if it's easier to juggle two characters (I assume it's susan and eliza), it's totally fine since we won't back-roleplay any posts :p just make sure to bring the food back to jack and moira! so they get sleepy too

(also, for the DRAMAAAA we can back-rp the dreams!)

Yeah, that's mostly the reason why, getting all four of them to chat feels like it'll be a little tough to make it seem normal and not scripted so everyone gets a line...but yes we will bring food back...and then DRAMA
