Health/sleep/work first. Hope the flu passes soon.

Flu has a nasty habit of spreading - if you didn't have it before Kate, you're likely to get it after Kate. It might be a good idea to make preparations for that eventuality (I'd suggest taking some vitamin C).

It has been pointed out to me, via PM, that Alexis has a bad habit of jumping in early and impulsively, and throwing people onto a harder 'mode' (e.g. when breaking the stealth runes). Looking back over his actions, I concluded at the time that this criticism was correct. I'm not going to make Alexis act out of character, but that doesn't mean I can't try to alleviate the problem.

In the current situation, Alexis' immediate response would be somewhat adversarial; if he acts first, he's likely to scuttle any opportunity to just talk to the backwards-talking people. I realised after I'd posted it that Alexis is once again cutting off a potential strategy that other people might like to use; I removed my post and saved it as a draft instead. My plan was, I would wait for other people to act - if an adversarial relationship was established, I'd put forward the original post, while if someone made an attempt to communicate, Alexis' strategy would change (very slightly) to a purely defensive one. Since people often post while I am asleep, I left it overnight.

No-one posted overnight. This left me unsure - should I continue to wait until someone either establishes an adversarial relationship or attempts to communicate, or should I post my post as-is?

I then decided that I should simply ask the other players. Does anyone want to try a communication strategy, or any other strategy that requires not leaping straight to the attack?

If so, then I will wait for you to post before posting for Alexis. If everyone turns out to be waiting on Alexis (for whatever reason) then I'll post as-is.

I'll only say one thing; what Ashley's action was is considered communicative; even if she used runic ability, she essentially asked a question.

I'm going to at least try to communicate. It's just going to be better off if I do so via a Skype RP session with Bunny. I slept through my chance to do so last night (seeing as I was running on 3 hours of sleep from the prior night I turned in really early), so will try and catch him tonight.

Well, considering that the Goddess is apparently trying to communicate... which, note, up until now there has been no attempts from anyone so 'controlled'. While I have a feeling it's going to end up like that captured alien from Independence Day - 'Peaaaace... no peaaaace...' I'm at least willing to try.

CCC hold off on posting untill Ruan does. Those of you yet to post can use your three remaining actions to react to whats about to be posted. Those who've moved already cannot.

*dramatic music*

I admit, I didn't expect it to hatch. I was expecting the climactic battle to be against the ether-reversed goddesses.

As Bunny put it on Skype:

The good news: Ruan and Jared have pretty much disabled the Goddesses.

The bad news: They also woke up the BIG hard mode baddy of the world.

------

This is going to be !Fun!
