"That Peregrine Snapcase is a real card, quite a hoot! These Grumblers have no bloody sense of humour!"

Story continuing to very absorbing, keep it coming.

I return to Blighty and what do I  find but the Grumblers running amok in some dark scary wood and Seldom Penitent frightened of a Snapcase fish head.

It really won't do, where's their backbone, they must pull themselves together and advance in a bold, brave style. Even if it is to their death.

It could be that the clue is in the name ;)

Thanks - not having any real control over any of the characters gives it a different feel from my usual games.

I think you may be expecting too much from The Grumblers but you never know. And welcome back from your travels.

Well, it's always darkest just before the dawn.  That's hat "they" say.  Whoever "they" are...

Presuming that particular adage is based in reality, mayhaps the Grumblers will sort themselves out and get on with the business at hand......

They donít appear to be I regret to say. Details later but itís fir to say that some of The Grumblers have a lot more to grumble about than previously. :(

He turns and runs, trips over a root, falls heavily, hits his head and loses consciousness.
Peregrine, preoccupied with trying to find the park gates, is unaware of Seldom and his predicament.
<this incident was resolved by the usual rolls-a-die method - I hadnít made rules in advance to cover it. I thought that someone whoíd failed to move for "X" turns because his courage failed him, was now alone with no torch or lantern, in a spooky place where supernatural beings may be lurking was very likely to panic. But I gave him a chance not to. However, he failed his dice roll (he got "1" on a d10) so he ran. Another dice roll had him tripping up and a third roll had him knocked unconscious. Then it occurred to that he may have yelled in terror on seeing Peregrine or just ran in silence. If he yelled or screamed, it may effect the rest of his group, now out of sight. More dice rolls. I reckoned it was more than evens that heíd cry out, given his character and circumstances. Result - he screams; this may affect what Rev Mother and his two followers do next Turn. In an ordinary game, all these impromptu dice rolls would be tedious but in a solo game, it doesnít matter. The game will probably take weeks to resolve so no rush>.

I like these tests and their explanation.  :)
