      Game Update #232 in sequence (file #1428)

      Admin Notes: None.

         From Arawn: [Re: Vote]

           Arawn still would prefer to investigate the other caverns
           first. He feels that the Brain is already aware of their
           existence and may have the area set up as a trap. He'd prefer
           to look for others, human or vong, and try to pull information
           that can be used against the Brain or gain allies in the fight
           against it.

           So, Vote option 4
         GM: Ack. Paraphrased so looks like opinion was given indirectly
             rather than verbal.

         From Alex: [Re; My status]
           Hi Folks,

           Scott has let me know that his computer is having problems.
           So a result is a delay in the P&P game.
         GM: Ack.  Yep.  I'm back.

         From Kell: [Re: Vote]
           Kell likes the idea of scouting the other stairs, to make sure
           the attack is located correctly.  After that, send in the
           Elementals while the group uses long range attacks.  Group
           move in to melee only as a last resort.]

           Ha'Kell expresses his thoughts to the group appropriately.
           If no one else makes a decision he will, after spending five
           minutes waiting for a mist to end.  He'll volunteer to send
           in the Elementals all by himself.  :)
         GM: Ack. The mist time is over.  Should have done that before. :<
             Sorry.  Since that was like 3-4 weeks ago.  Glad your still
             alive.  Was going to email you and check on you.

         From Z'leyra: [Re: Actions]
           Z'leyra says "While the Elementals may be a great aid in...
         GM: Ack.

      [New Stuff]

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

          [Time: 2:44:00pm - 2:46:00pm]

            Arawn knows that going into a hot zone like the Brain
          theater could be too risky.  Especially with Unali's
          scouting and her being affected in some method.  He
          voices that he would rather avoid the theater till the
          very last.  Especially to meet with more humans or outcasts.

            Z'leyra says. "While the Elementals may be a great aid in the
          battle, the caster should be ready to dispell them just in case
          the enemy somehow wrests control of them away. Given that, a
          slight delay while summoning them may be worthwhile."

            Ha'kell listens to the enchantress with a glint of amusement.
          But then he realizes the statement was serious.  He also considers
          a possible scouting of other areas first.

            Farseeker paces the open ground back and forth.  There is just
          no cover here at all.  While in the open air field they have to
          be seen already.  "Look folks we need to decide these things
          fast.  We are in a vulnerable spot. Now some wish to scout
          other areas."  He looks to the rescued girl.  "Do you know
          how to defeat the Brain?"

            "Brain? What is that?"  The girl looks back and forth from
          Farseeker to Z'leyra in confusion.

            "See?  You think the Vong will be open to prisoners to let
          them know how to defeat them? Same with the outcasts. If they
          are to be the low or ignored caste you think they would tell
          them how to do it? Sure maybe they got lucky to overhear something
          but I seriously doubt it."  Farseeker crosses his arms in a bit
          of frustration of impatience.

            "Crossing the field to the other ladder will take a few
          minutes. If we are going to explore we need to do something
          now and decide. Time is running out." Caladan says as he
          waves a free hand to the mountain in the west and leans
          on his war staff.

            Raban growls a bit annoyed at the state of planning. He
          knows this group is slow to plan but fast to react rather
          than act.  He looks to Unali for some sign of leadership
          then turns to the girl. "What of her as well?"

          [Time: 2:46:00pm - Current]

          Actions? Comments?

          Next Update....Monday...

          GM: I'm back. Took longer to repair and get it back then
              I wanted.  But it was free so no complaints.  I had
              asked Alex to send note to folks so you guys could
              iron out the full plan in the week I lost.  But it
              seems based on no CCed emails to me or posts that
              none was made.  So we are back to square one on where
              to go from here.  Right now no majority is done for
              the votes (need 1 more).  Some of the no votes could
              change that. Unless Unali as leader just decides to
              order the group in one way.  But if plans change and
              the group goes to explore other caves I can immediately
              move the group along. Since on this side would go up
              and skip the brain cave and go up and then use the ledge
              at the top to cross to the other side at the ceiling
              of the cave.  Unless stated to cross on the ground and
              up then back to this side.  So I'm open to whatever
              as long as consensus is done.   So till then these
              updates will be real small and fast to make. :)  Which
              is fine for my Level 25 Wizard in diablo 3. :)

          GM: Plans made:

              1- Unali first attack, others join in later
              2- All as a group attack at once via entrance
              3- Teleport inside the cave and fight as one
              4- Other

              Raban    - 1         Fremea  - 4
              Caladan  - 2         Kell    - 4
              Ben'dar  - 2         Kiet    - 2
              Farseker - 2         Unali   - No Vote
              Lin      - 2         Will    - No Vote
              Chion    - No Vote   Z'leyra - 2
              Arawn    - 4

              1: 1   2: 6   3: -  4: 3   No Vote: 3
              Majority is 7 though Unali can decide any time to end the
              voting. If no majority next highest group will win.
