Hmm... quite a bit to address here...
Ms. Parsoute, welcome to the All-Sorts. We could use all the drivers we can get.
And speaking French... I may not understand it, but I'm cool with that. One of the reasons I made the place 'Anchor Town', so it could be ambiguous as to where the city is; it's just somewhere in the good ol' US of A during the 1920's. Could be South, could be North... could be further away. ^^
"Zat ees Mademoiselle Parsoute eef you don't mind..."
Actually, she isn't going to have a French accent, but you've done the "Ms" thing again... *winks* Mlle. is French for Miss, Mme. is French for Mrs. and M. is French for Mr..
Setting the story in "Anchor Town" (aka Anytown), Somecounty, UQ1
is a good idea, because it doesn't limit you to scenery or specific locations. We can have a river, a harbour, sky scrapers, boonies, a beach, whatever we want. A bit like Springfield in The Simpsons.
We've got plenty of people so far, and plenty to start it up. I'll work on getting the game set up! Still waiting for a character profile from SummerWhispers and Amazon, but you've got time to do that. :)
Thank you to everyone for being so patient!
Good things are worth the wait. Any really worthwhile group game takes a while to set up, and you cen generally judge how well the players are going to mesh by the level of inconsequential chatter in the recruitment thread. This group are doing pretty well so far as I can see...
Really looking forward to starting.
1] UQ is the state code for the state of "Ubiquitous", which is the exty-first state of the USA...
