As you all know, I've got a bit of catching up to do in this game, other games, and other sites. XD. I'm also camping with my family this weekend but I should be stopping in a couple times anyways over the weekend...some camping trip with computer breaks here and there...lol.
I will enter you into the game as soon as I get everyone else updated. I may even slide you in with others, to kill 2 birds with one stone. The Highway Idea i could do...but....as you will all soon find out....the traffic is a bit...congested....
Incase none of you saw...i made a post in the Comings and Goings section that declared my return!
Let me tell you...newegg....sucks. I dont care what other people say. I had the worst experiance you can possibly have with them.
First, i make my order, on a thursday. i look for good deals while still aiming for an amazing gaming computer. I end up being VERY happy with what I got. All really good stuff going above and beyond whats necessary, and for under 1000 dollars after mail in rebates. It was supposed to all arrive on Monday. Monday came and i dint get it..i was upset but it wasnt a big deal..until i didnt get it tuesday either...then i decided to go check the website to see why i hadn't gotten it....And turned out my ORDER WAS VOID!!!!!!!! WHY?!?!!?! I called liked 3 times and didn't get a straight answer. They had cancelled my order though, AND, on top of that, I lost allll my rebates because their order ended July 2dd which was a day after they cancelled my order.
They had my number..they could have called me...who the hell cancels a consumers order without informing them? Newegg. thats who. So Anyways, I make the order again. this time on wednesday. Its much mroe expensive without the rebates...which upsets me greatly, AND i needed to pay extra because now i needed rush processing and rush delivery. overnight delivery because the guy that was going to help me build it was leaving town. he was leaving town on monday, but i didnt trust 3 day shipping when day three happens to fall on a saturday after 4 of july. So overnight shipping and rushed processing done on wednesday morning. it was schedualed to arrive on thursday. well..it didnt. infact, it didnt even ship. After I paid 200 dollars in shipping because of their first screw up. I spent the night harassing them and trying to figure out why it hadn't shipped....and found out after a slow and laborious process that Newegg claims they need to call a consumers bank to verify billing information....and they couldnt find my banks number....well wonderful of them to tell me eh? Instead of screwing up my order AGAIN. So i go to the bank and get the number, but the lady at the bank tells me that they aren't allowed to verify anybodys billing information with Vendors over the phone. SO WHAT THE HELL?!!?!?!! I call Newegg and tell them this, and they say..I s*** you not. "Well if we can't contact your bank, we would call you to verify your shipping information." WHHAAAAAAAT????????????????????? I never got a friggen phonecall the first time they went and cancelled my order. I didnt get a phonecall THIS time either while they screw up my overnight shipping. IM ON THE PHONE WITH THEM AND THEY ARE STILL TELLING ME TO CONTACT MY BANK!!! So i ask nicely "well im on the phone. why don't we just VERIFY THROUGH ME NOW THEN!." "Oh...we cant do that....could you hold a moment?" Five friggen minuts later my order is processed. I have never been so angry in my life over a purchase.
It didn't even matter...because All the parts came in and the guy that helps me build it wasnt here because Newegg failed to deliver it on time. They didn't even give me a full refund. They gave me 50 dollars off. So i JUST got my computer built...and I'm still angry just thinking about it.
Well there you have it. The full story behind my absence. Feeding the Undead will pick right back up as soon as everything settles down for me and i have time to update for everyone, and we can go back to at least once a week posting again. Thanks for your patience
Wow what a pain in the a$$! I woulda been flipping out if all the s***t happened to my computer lol. Have fun at camp with the family too!
I don't know if you already got something planned but notice in my inventory that I don't have a car. I did that because I was planning in the opening scene to have Frank get into a car wreck(maybe dodgeing a zombie). I woulda written it out by now but I wasnt sure how you wanted things done. I was gonna have it to where he might of bust his nose on the steering wheel and having him get all bloodied up. Not a broken nose jus bloody. I don't know if you'd wanna start me off that way or not but I thought its be a more intresting way to start off. Rather than starting at a college party not drunk equipped with a nailbat inside my backpack. This way seemed more realastic more possible. I dunno your call tho boss ive seen your writing and im confident in however you may start me off. Have fun camping.

There really is no excuse, and I do believe my good name is ruined. Computer issues really did take up a big part of my summer....And then I moved, which took up a few more weeks before I could have internet. And then School started. I've been in a new place (never even been in this part of New York before..im right outside NYC), at a new school, and have SHATLOADS of schoolwork...It's wretched. So..yeah...this game had to be put on the end of my list of priorities.
That being said...October has reminded me of this old corpse that I had stuffed in the closet....and I want to bring it back to life.
Any of you in to continue the storyline?
You have my solemn oath. I WILL post regularly. because I'm not joining any other games. This will be easy for me. Now...Who's up for some Zombies?
I've posted for Almerin. Tomorrow I shall post for everyone else!
Our current group is Vorrioch, Bob, Al, and Grugg.
Tis enough .
Again I HIGHLY recommend, and infact implore you to reread a bit of what has happened for your character. I know there hasn't been much action but there HAS been quite a bit of clues, and place descriptions and hints dropped.
Out of interest, do you have any objection to maintaining a split party?
Bryson’s default reaction is probably just going to be to get the hell out of Dodge… but if this is going to create a lot of extra work for you as GM then please just let me know and I’ll find some reason to bring him back instead.
Sorry for not posting yet. I've been busy, and otherwise distracted from doing so. But I'm very happy with the update so far, and really motivated to get a good post in. I can't really focus right now though, and I don't want to do you short, ok?
