Loves those sound effects you are using; so realistic. Sirens, feedback buzzing :-( , etc…

So is the group gung-ho to save the girl? You be the judge… LOL

Marmaduke Blakeney: “So, uh, I suppose we should head off soon?”

Lauren Nichols: “Well, not before the coffee.”

Marmaduke Blakeney: “Oh no course, course not, that would be foolish.”

Lauren Nichols: “Never go anywhere before the coffee.”

OMG… I have not heard “Greyhawking” in a long time.

The scenario is slow to get going as it took about halfway before anything really happened.

Once it got going, even the going was slow as it took another half hour.

The last half hour was a bit quicker with a lot of information and interesting conclusion.

LOL WTG Doc, point out the bodies to the group… Sanity checks for everyone!!! Can you say PVP… LOL

Looking forward to the Doc’s new published book.

17!!! YES!!!

So what is Marmaduke Blakeney last word before his mind unhinges?
