We're well underway with chapter 8, and the plan is to end with the crew ride to Kanesville, by wagon train. So lots of wagons, and horses.

Kanesville is the starting point for the next chapter, where a train will be taken.

Also note, we're taking a poll on how we will move to the next chapter. See the plotting section (only visible to the writer usergroup).

At the moment we are aware of possible sabotage, and strangers checking up on the crew. Don't forget that we have bounty hunters hanging around, they are at the very least looking for Colton.

I'll start up a topic dealing with the saboteurs in the plotting and brainstorming section (visible for the writers usergroup, please login to participate).

And here is some inspiration for the next chapter(s) if we take a steam train.

How much longer do we anticipate being in Harling Pass? Should we be in wrap-up mode?

Yes, basically.

It has been mentioned that wagons are being packed. You can expect the ship to go in storage, and that will be the signal that we will finally really wrap up the chapter. Please also discuss the plans and plots for chapter 9. To the Secret Cabin!

The post that moves the ship from the open plains into the hangar is going to be posted in an hour and a half or so.

That means that the ship is no longer on the plains in the current storyline/time. Any posts published after that should reflect this change. Edit your post to reflect this, so there is no confusion to the reader.

There are two posts that I am aware of being written to take place on Steamhawke before we move out.

Yes, we can move the posts to take place in the next chapter, if the other writers agree. Any other posts that expressly need to be posted this chapter in Harling Pass? Or is everyone ready to move to the next chapter?

Same here. Not working on anything, don't have anything else planned.

I have something I'm working on...sort of. See, Vex is really busy, I'm writing something with him/her, but since Vex is so busy and I'll most likely be away for the big event, I wrote up a quick and dirty scene for the end event. Vex would add some stuff, it would be sent to you, Dae, and you could alter some stuff to make it fit in the overall post. It's like five paragraphs, so it shouldn't be a big deal and you could always cut some stuff.

So I'm waiting on Vex. I was thinking that I'd write to Vex saying if he/she couldn't get it written up before I left for my trip to just send it to you. It might not happen. I don't know.

Otherwise, I have a post with Hyren and one with Vex that will now take place in Kanesville and waiting on Hyren on that fight scene edit.

Currently not working on anything and don't want to until I get back from my trip.

The fight scene edit is not too important as it has been published already and has its 'place' in the publishing timeline. You can simply edit that particular post, no need to repost it or anything. Take your time with that one :)

I havent heard anything from Vex, we do have a leave of absence system people are encouraged to use or at least to pm me or Five about being away or just mention it directly to us in the chatbox, like you did, as well as on the forum.

Any idea how long they'd be absent for?

Can you rework the post to take place in Kanesville?

Yeah, I was just going to drop the new text in the post for the fight scene.

Vex is still active. Just added a paragraph to our post on Sunday. Just going very slowly.

Hyren last wrote in our post on the 4th, but is still popping into the cbox with updates on how busy he is of course.

The few paragraphs I wrote? Well it wouldn't be a big deal if the scene never happened. If Vex really likes it, we could stick it in as a flashback to rework our post that is going to happen in Kanesville anyway. I could retinker it to work with the end of Harling Pass, but something happens there, so it might not work at all. I guess I could have you look at it.

Update: Ha! Just after I posted this I checked my email and Vex responded. It's done. I'll pm it to you.

Hopefully we will have time to close the chapter on saturday/sunday 28/29 september. I see no other posts ready for the chapter besides the ones I am writing with Vex and Miyra.

These two posts will be published this week. Either I finish them myself, or Vex or Miyra publishes them.
