    If you post where your from and that you need a ride there might be someone around that area that has extra room. I know we have people from st.charles, warrenton, eureka, maryland heights, O'fallon, and Lake St.Louis. I can't speak for them but its worth posting.

    Speaking of the weekend cleanup/practice. Just want to make sure everyone knows there is only a creek for water there. I would suggest if your staying for the whole thing to bring a case of water per person(or pot and preparing for a long walk), a roll of tp, sunscreen, and bug repelant. I should have some extra of all that incase someone forgets.

    thanks, its not the lack of ride. its the commitment to previous obligations

    Fair enough. Hopefully you'll get to make it out for the September event at the very least.

    And what Kuba says is correct. Also, unless you want to drive out everyday, bring food.

    I'm not sure if anyone checked the weather recently but looks hot and wet for the weekend. Might want to bring a tarp if your tent is not water sealed and a extra chang of clothes too. Atleast the rain will help cool it down some.

    If its going to rain, who still plans on going? I really want to camp, but not in the mud. I thought about bringing a swimsuit just in case its not raining and there's a nice spot to swim though.

    I am planning on being there Friday from start until 8-9pm due to work at 530am, back Saturday at 430pm until 8-9pm again due to work then back Sunday at 430ish until everyone leaves.

    Aximili I believe still plans on going for part of the time just not sure when. I'll ask him to post what times he'll be going if he is still going tonight when he gets to work. If Aximili doesn't go or doesn't plan on camping I'm not going to bother with the tent.

    As far as Futaba and Drazi they may stop in but I don't think they will due to working different shifts and the little one.

    As far as I can remember I believe the creek is very shallow maybe 2-3 feet at most but with all our rain lately it might be a good idea to bring a swim suit just incase.

    As far as it being muddy I believe that most of the mud last time we were there was near the creek and woods surrounding the creek. The villages for the most part are all grass covered.

    On a related note...

    I found out the wheel barrow I had lined up has 2 flat tires and even filling them they go flat in a half hour so no point in me bring it this week.

    I've been keeping an eye on it, yeah, but I really don't want to cancel. I have no other time that I can reschedule this to, and per Vutha, he and I have to be on-site to do this so we're all covered under the insurance and land-use agreement. I'm booked until our next event. This weekend I'll be on site rain or shine.

    Join me if you can. Help will be greatly appreciated.

    This way you can set up for how things will work in rain events... what lands will take water, what dangers the slick grass and mud will have.. etc. Learning to game in the rain and how to set stuff up is a good thing to do, take it from the Cancel King of the north... don't cancel... like... ever unless it is a safety risk.

    WHAT! How preposterous a mage that can not stand getting a little hot or wet? Don't you have a spell for that?

    We have a really good feel for how the weather will effect the lands just by having walked the property. Based on the map above, the dead plains and camp 2 are the only sites potentially at risk of flooding, and even then there is still hillside to drain. All in all the real issue will be the road getting to the property, as it is dirt. Our actual game area is nearly entirely grassland and forest. Like Kuba said, the areas around the creek were the only muddy spots, and we walked the property right after a big storm.

    Artenen is right though, thus will definitely give us a better understanding of what to expect should bad weather hit us mid-game... it is Missouri after all, the weather changes at the drop of a hat...

    I will not cancel this unless there is lightning.

    The only problem I have is that is it does not dry up enough, Brushcatting is going to be tremendously slow. Which from what Ufnar has seen will be all of camp 1 and some of the main road. that is the obstacle I am facing at this point.

    i agree thats my main point.. its going to take a very long time to cut out the areas when its all soggy from rain

    But lightning has. That's my concern. I don't know if I'll camp if it's going to storm, but I'd still like to at least walk around the land and get a feel for it.

    I agree on saturday I'm going to check out/walk it but storms = unsafe won't be camping

    A little weather update no big changes basically slight chance of rain over the weekend with scattered thunderstorms Friday night throughout Saturday morning then clear until Sunday night. This is as of Thursday night at 11pm. So those who do not want to camp in thunderstorms should be safe Saturday night.

    Sorry guys planned on being there today but forgot to do laundry for work in the morning so got out of here late getting to bushes wildlife before noticing I was almost out of gas and after going to the closest gas station I noticed I left my wallet at home so ran home to get my wallet and noticed the storm moving in. By the time I could get down there and haul everything down I would have to turn around to load it all back up so I'll be there after work tomorrow.

    We did not. Although that may be something that should be done in character. Failing that, I put forth the name 'Borogrove.'

    I would like to cast my vote for "amon tal" which is elvish for city on the hill... I was only asking because I was trying to draw a map of the new realm.

    I like Altea (al-tay-uh). It means "elevated"in Latin and has an arcane and elvish ring to it.
