I agree with Danceria, I suggest that we consider this the closing of a chapter and start the morning off as a new chapter- get to experience the town a bit more after packing up or- who knows some might decide to treck around- find one of those shrines or fairy rings.

I'm on board with that, to explore either the town or forest, what we had so far serves as an adequate prologue of things to come. Only question is what the mechanics will be - will we split off and rejoin or remain together in a new place?

Indeed- we can go off together to examine what's around the camp (to perhaps bring minds to ease), some may choose to leave to return to town while others stay to look around, all may go about getting back home and dropping characters off to explore life as they usually live it with the events of this night lingering in their minds enough to say go to examine that skull said to be on display or ask questions of their parents, while another prospect is that we'll go into town or elsewhere together with some purpose though I know not what it could be.

We still have a camping time, just one that's slightly on edge, and perhaps some more talking about the town itself, and having slice of life stuff. Sounds like plans are being made to figure out what's in the woods.

Well it depends- that's where regional rules come into play and I've not been to West Virginia. In my homestate, which is further south in the Carolinas- Donny can request a different dare due to lacking the impliments to do the current one. To us it's like- if you where dared to crush a can on your head but have no can- the darer has not made a doable dare and thus must make one that can be performed.

:lol: It's Bear, Turkey, and Boar season in WV so I wont know what he had in mind until Evan says something.

Additionally, due to a TG conversation I've determined that Woodview is EAST of MOOREFIELD, WV off 220 and thus WEST of WARDENSVILLE. Quite a location ey?

Character Name: John Henry Holliday, called Doc by everyone despite not possessing a doctorate
About the Character: John has lived in the town his whole life alongside his best friend and adopted sibling Charlotte "Charlie" Holliday. After losing his folks he looks after the Holliday House, a large manor up on a rather shady hill outside of town. Despite the rather creepy appearance of his home he lives a very productive life, in the passing of both his parents the two children inherited the town's cemetery and funeral home, John however wanted to serve the town another way and decided to do his best an help the local medical services. He is often seen driving around in a white 1992 IROC-Z28 with a thin red line going down the side that over the back fenders squiggles like a heartbeat monitor, the doors and hood are painted with gold caduceus and the roof is lined with a light bar that is its bright red and white lights flash so too plays a siren, just to make sure everyone knows it is an emergency.

He makes house calls and treats everyone from the elderly to babies, while without a medical license he can only give over the counter medications, Doc actually prefers to make use of rare and specially chosen herbal remedies from his home's garden. At times Charlie can be observed acting as his nurse, though many patients prefer to deal with Doc as his sister's association with death can be a bit off putting, especially to the elderly.

Upon his hip Doc carries a six shot .45 caliber single action revolver, he hates fighting, but due to an incident where he nearly got shot responding to a domestic disturbance call before the cops could get there, he feels he must - and considering how bears lately have liked to hang around the local park it would be wise to keep a sidearm around, just incase.
_______________________________________________________

Alrighty, all I got, I could make one for his sister Charlie, but aside from being rather reclusive and shy I don't have much planned for her, she will likely develop a lot more in the story than I could write here.

Certainly and please do let me know what you find and, also what you think of Avalon's character- in regards to getting him into the story at some point.

Origionally, I meant the Greyflow to be the New River due to it's proximity to Greystone Quarry. Based on this new information, we would be near Mundy Quarries in Virginia, along WV-259. Rather remote, I might add.

I should also note according to Google Maps, there are a few places like "Lost City" and "Lost River camping ground". Unintentional genius, Harb...unintentional genius.

Also, Monty being an honorary Dorian is of course, due to them being good friends and all. As well as numerous Noodle Incidents, both relevant or just generally silly moments of pure d'aww.
