Stay tuned...

OMG, I want it to be like John Carter of Mars and watch Goliath try to learn to walk.

Looking back, I think the old curse was due to not having a plot beyond "figure out your situation here."

I did a few searches, as I have not read all of the other Lost in Dreams threads, but it seemed the players dropped out too quickly to find out...

Zonx gave it an honest shot. I was too inexperienced to notice what went wrong.

It didn't help that they were inexperienced jumpers... Peter has many advantages going in. Especially this highly detailed clairsentient vision! Gonna milk that!

It's Dec 17 on Peter's world... just 8 days til we find out if Peter will be home for Christmas!

It haunts me every time I spend a point on a skill... but I keep spending them eventually anyway...

ya'know, screw it, I am gonna put three points into Dreaming making it four in dreaming total for @Will.... Peter deserves Dreaming at 14, he's earned it, lol.

So he has 2 unspent...

I've been updating the links for journeys... Julian has spent almost as many posts in orbit around Panogos as in Riask.


also, Julian gets really simple one-word names for his worlds, and describing Peter's words is all descriptions.
