Enjoy the party! :D

I will wait one more day for Fuzzy to come back and also for Gilliam and baixiwei to respond to Kisai first. Once Fuzzy responds I will move everyone on.

I kinda realized that I went about introducing Aranea the wrong way. I should have her stumble upon some other piece of the rogue KGB plan, like Chrysalis and Jackie did. All the leads should point to the convention center attack and when everyone meets and compare notes they realized they're after a common threat.

With regards to the situation in the convention center, who is waiting for whom now? I want to make sure we avoid the situation where everyone thinks it's someone else's turn.

I don't have anything in particular to say at the moment. I intended the comment "Something looks different?" to Kisai as an invitation to say something about changes that have happened to him since our last meeting and take not doing so as an indication that he doesn't want to talk about it. If that's the case, and if I am not missing a conversation hook to which *I* could/should react, then I don't mind moving on.

Gilliam however might have something to say?

Well, it might have eventually led to that, but Jackie was all business, and rightfully so. Her attitude isn't out of line with his actions.

So he figures thats how the team is towards him. They have moved on.

Kisai is still very embarrassed about losing the dragon and he isn't going to just open up about it.

I'm not sure I agree with that. It's one thing for Jackie and Chrysalis to "stumble" upon an element of the plan, but when you have yet another person stumble upon an aspect of their plan again, I start feeling that you're straining credulity.

If you need everyone together (and you didn't want to introduce the summoners), you could have arranged for Aranea to stumble upon Jackie and Chrys and all together they stumble upon the sub.

But two separate "stumbling upons" is too much.

And getting everyone together is ultimately what matters.

IMO.

Since Aranea is swinging wildly through the city, her ending up at the convention center just as all hell breaks loose is a very reasonable way to bring her in.

Edit: And yes, if it wasn't clear, I am waiting for Jackie of Chrysalis to respond. Philip isn't going to just "open up" about the loss of his dragon. If his opening up is the only way this conversation continues, then maybe we should move into the action phase.

I was waiting to see if Baixiwei wanted to say anything so I will put up a post tonight. I hope you don't mind if Jackie makes the odd catty comment until she is sure that Phillip is actually back on board.

Oh, totally fine with it.

The way I see it, Philip would open up at then end of the story.

Currently writing out Mockingbird's post. Just got home a bit ago from Kentucky.

I considered trying to Power Stunt Emotion Control, but it seemed more honest to just make the skill rolls. :)

We are receiving Mockingbird's distress call, right?

Long ago, Mars mentioned something about adapting the communicators to provide tactile feedback so Chrys could actually use them to navigate or something. Has that been done?

I'm fine if the answer is "no". Part of the limitations of the character is difficulty with tech.

I think that Mars would have made good on his promise by now. So assume that you receive alerts, beeps, etc. unless I specifically say so. You still cannot talk into it, of course.

Oh no, I thought I always was able to hear it ... what I was wondering is whether I could use it to locate Mockingbird, despite my blindness.
