     [New Stuff]

         [Augado 10th, 1634TH]
         [Location: Middle Katai Plains] 
         [          Mountains west of Pamau]                

         [Time: 1:18 pm]

           Ben'dar doesn't like the tiresome strategy meetings so decides
         whatever is determined he will go with.  

           Caladan quickly adds his view after some thought. "The edge we
         will have are the ones with long range weapons.  We should divide
         those up.  Three of each bowers and magic users at the least."

           Chion simply doesn't care who goes where as long as the Shapers
         have to be dealt with first.  He warns if they have the Orbs all
         stealth is lost.

            Farseeker quickly figures out the groups he suggests.  Based
         on their skills and abilities. "Group 1 - Arawn, Caladan, Unali,
         Strie'bog and Ben'dar.  Group 2 - Chion, Kell, Z'leyra, Lin
         and myself.  Group 3 - Will, Raban, Fremea, Kiet and Zhou. I
         also think the Shapers have to be dealt with first. The
         human prisoners helped second and everyone else can be handled
         as needed.

           Raban who has been quiet for some time figures the best group
         would before him to be near Fremea to protect her. But otherwise
         does not care.

           Strie'bog agrees with the group suggestions made by Farseeker.

           Zhou shakes his head, "I don't understand this tactics myself.
         But I tend to agree with Farseeker's suggestion.  Except my
         babysitter," he glances briefly at Kiet, "not letting me fight."

           Captain Lin crosses his arms and considers the plans. "I simply
         can't suggest anything.  I do not know how each of you act.  I've
         seen the good warriors but I've not seen everyone.

         Next Update....Monday...

         GM: I'm a organized fool being a computer programmer.  I tend to
             like charts.  So here is one I came up based on notes and

      Player  Group    MU   TP  Bow Fighter Support  Notes
      Arawn             Y    Y   Y     Y       -       --

      Z'leyra           Y    Y   Y     Y       Y       --
      Caladan           Y    -   Y     Y       -       --
      Kell              Y    -   Y     Y       -       --
      Raban             Y    -   Y     Y       -       --
      Strie'bog         Y    -   Y     Y       -       --
      Kiet              Y    -   -     -       Y       --
      Unali             -    -   Y     Y       -       --
      Ben'dar           -    -   Y     Y       -       --
      Lin               -    -   -     Y       -       --
      Farseeker         -    -   -     Y       -       --
      Zhou              -    -   -     -       Y       --

         To help classify folks.  Group isn't defined yet.  MU=Magic
         user.  TP = Teleporter.  Bow=Archer or use of ranged weapon
         like spear.  Fighter tends to be fighter oriented person.
         Support tends to be behind lines and support position.

         GM: Based on the votes taken and notes this is the votes roughly.

        Ben'dar       Abstain/No Vote
        Caladan       3 Archers/3 Wizards/3 Fighters per group
        Chion         Abstain/As long as Shapers taken care of first
        Farseeker     Vote given
        Raban         Abstain/As long as near Fremea
        Strie'bog     Same votes as Farseeker
        Zhou          Same votes as Farseeker
        Lin           Abstain/No vote
        Kell          Voted already
        Kiet          Voted already
        Z'leyra       Semi given suggest, middle group to help heal
        Arawn         Not given suggestion
        Fremea        Not given suggestion
        Unali         Not given suggestion
        Will          Not given suggestion

            With 8 folks being a majority the votes are good for now.
            We have a general census.  Those not voted can still
            make their suggestions.  It could change things.

            This is a quick chart on what groups are who.

         Ara Cal Chi Far Fre Kell Kiet Rab Str Una Wil Zly Zho Lin Ben
    1:   X 5 X 3     X 2 X 1      X  1 X 1 X 4 X 3                 X 4
    2:       X 1 X 3 X 3     X  4 X  1                 X 3 X 1 X 4 X 1
    3:           X 1     X 3 X  1 X  3 X 4     X 1 X 5 X 2 X 3 X 1 X 1
    O:       X 1 X 1     X 1               X 1 X 1

          Top is the player names in short form.  Should be able to figure
          out but if not let me know.  1-3 are the groups.  The O-is other
          not put in a particular group (Kell's votes).

          Based on these votes Arawn seems to be driven to group 1. 
          Caladan to 1.  Chion to 2. Far to 2. Fremea to 3. Kell to 2.
          Kiet to 3.  Raban to 4. Strie'bog to 1.  Unali to 1.  Will to 3.
          Z'leyra to 2.  Zhou to 3. Lin to 2.  Ben'dar to 1.

          If you wish to change teams let me know.

         GM:  Now that we know what will be done group wise. We can move
              on for next update.  But problem is no plans have been made
              for the first few rounds.  Scouting?  Plain ambush? Slice
              and dice? if Unali or others do not give orders then I
              will go on some suggestions Farseeker gives. This includes
              teleporting some groups to certain places and going from
              there.  It will be a rough plan.  If you guys want to iron
              out the details I can hold the updates more.  Let me know
              and we can work on the plans.  

              if charts mess up see website for better format.

        Torches are about 15 wide light areas so about 3 rows or 6 columns
