For the title, we could use a film title or something, or maybe keep it simple like Chicago Noir. Whereas I think the cinematic term was only used from the 40s onwards. We can get some suggestions and afterwards we vote for the best name.

Should we do another meeting in the pad to go over some of the plot points? Like how is the victim killed? And other stuff like the general way of the rp?

Sorry for another double post.

I was scrolling a bit through the Internet and found an (in my ears) simple yet nice title. There´s that prohibition-era cocktail named "Last Word". The victim could, as clichéd as it sounds, mutter another word or make himself heard in some way before dying? (Of course, one would then have to plan so far ahead that we don't immediately find out what is actually meant by this, so the word had to be something with many different meanings and possible interpretations.)

I like that -- The Last Word as a title has a nice ring to it as well.

That's a cool name! But, as you said, we'd have to plan out what HOG/OHG's last words actually were.

I like that name too! I do think another planning session in the pad would be helpful— I could probably do Friday afternoon/night EST, and then most times Saturday! If that doesn't work for anyone, though, I could shuffle stuff around too. What times are y'all free?

I work during the day on Friday and could do Saturday during the day/afternoon. I'm in US CST -- let me know!

We will have to wait a little longer for the victim's last word. That will probably be the last thing we have to focus on in the planning.

Friday and Saturday work for me. Unfortunately, I'm playing tennis on Sunday and will only be active a little later.

Would these dates fit?

Friday or
Saturday

Hope it works. Why do I have to convert this to GMT now too!?

I think and work best for me! If we had it at the earlier time on Friday I would probably be a little late.

The Friday one definitely works and the Saturday one might be a little iffy for me, but I can definitely do it around an hour or two later.

Friday is fine but I'd be a little late because I'm just getting off of work at that time. If we do choose Friday, would be best for me. But I'm flexible.

I´m fine with both dates and I would prefer the Saturday meeting. But I´m flexible.

My plans tomorrow were canceled, so it might work, but I'd be good with doing it today!
  








Owning our story can be hard but not nearly as difficult as spending our lives running from it. Embracing our vulnerabilities is risky but not nearly as dangerous as giving up on love and belonging and joy—the experiences that make us the most vulnerable. Only when we are brave enough to explore the darkness will we discover the infinite power of our light.
