Sorry, I've been kind of half-paying attention as finals week is upon me. I'll try to make a halfway decent contribution later (probably after work).

It's cool. I know I was a bit grumbly there. Good luck with your finals.

I don't think it was particularly grumpy.

Thanks, I'll need it; it's a rough week, and my finals don't even start until wednesday.

Anyway. When Chris said that the countryside was dotted with campfires, I figured he meant off in the distance, particularly since we'd already arrived at our campsite. That being the case, I thought that, rather than forced-march another eight hours to find some potentially hostile people, we'd wait until morning.

Now, if it turns out that all these campfires are only a brief mosey from where the Rope Trick is, I'll probably go check it out, with or without the girls, rather than hit the sack. I'm sure that Malak's and Aros' approach to the situation would be a bit more surreptitious than Mizuki's and OmniFrost's 'Hi, we're totally lost, who are you?'-type diplomacy.

Okay, now that was funny.

I honestly didn't want to give distances for the respective campsites until folks had shown an interest. I mean, I know it's a carrot-dangle, but I didn't want the open anyone's mouth and shove it in. However, for clarity, the southern campsites are all within a few miles of where Aros cast his spell. The western camp is comparatively closer, but still a couple miles away.

That's how I would have described it when asked IC, at least.

Buit why the heck do we have a campsite if we're not going to camp? This makes no sense to me.

Same reason that there was an abandoned amphitheater. Why do we have an amphitheater if we're not going to throw a concert? We're not the only people in this world.

huh?

I got the impression that we looked for and established a camp for ourselves.

That still doesn't mean you have to go to sleep. I was waiting for the hot dogs and marshmellows. Next thing I knew eveyone had jumped in the sack.

You'll travel through the badlands until nightfall and find a fairly secure locale for a camp, nestled amongst some low-lying columns.
Okay, let's be clear. This does not say "The DM insists that the characters would dig around and root for a campsite until they find one that is secure." Nightfall and coming across a campsite coincided. I was trying to finesse things.

I don't know how Malak's out of the action, either. Even if he is "camping" that doesn't mean the switch is turned off.

Psh! We'll take our own camera with us! I'm sure there's a niche market for emotionally addled soldier/lonely werebear trysts out there somewhere. (NSFW)

Well, I have now. That was was funny, and... comparatively not disturbing at all!

Oh, and as far as travel to a particular campsite is concerned, how are the ladies traveling? I ask only because both are capable of rapid overland flight, and I didn't want to discount that possibility with my post.

Sorry; I made the update without realizing I had skipped several posts, so when I checked back, I was surprised to find I was at the end of a relatively long string of new posts. I figured that no one had checked back since then, so I just went ahead.

It is my intent to post something near lunchtime or this afternoon - work's a bit of a bear this week, so if I try to put something up right now, it'll be rushed.

I will try to get a post up in response to Chris' either tonight before I go to bed, or after I get done with work tomorrow morning.

I'll wait 'till Aros responds before I post anything for Malak, then. I still haven't formulated my thoughts.

I will make another post this weekend, but it may not be until tomorrow sometime, since I'll be out of state at a Christmas party until sometime tomorrow.
