Back on track!
The way I see it, Josie gestures Hugo to come into the room. When he's in the room she gestures there is a rat underneath the closet. I will make sure to write it down that way next time. Even if rats are not common in the Lock and Feather, mice and other vermin are in a place that serves food. I guess the sign Josie uses is the one for vermin in general. Probely is a kind of crawling fingers on arm gesture. (so it could be a sipder or a mouse)
But I also thought Hugo saw the rat on the bed as we opened the door..... 
I'll make sure to put more detail into writing it down next time.
Sorry.

Yay, we're on again :)

Now if everyone who's been making promises previously would find themselves able to join in....

I'm going to have to reread a few pages to get back into character, but it's great that things are moving a bit again. I've almost forgotten about this.

Edit: I've made a stealth edit to my last post, though I'm pretty sure nobody was able to read the version without the lifting. This seems to be more interesting and true to Hugo's character.

I'm really wondering whether we'll manage to catch the rat before the room gets completely demolished =)

Sure hope so. Would be a pity if lifting the closet would result in you smashing it against the ceiling ;)
I'm just praying that this rat hunt won't result in bringing out Josie's other side :(

Josie throws Hugo an angry look, takes the bedpan out of his hands and puts it on the floor. She points at Hugo and then at the door, holds up the key and gestures the roomnummer of the other room she knows is not taken at the moment. She points at the door again, then acts as if she is picking up a customers bags, holds up the key and gestures the roomnummer of the empty room again. She then gestures to Hugo he needs to move the closet back and get out of the room[...]

For the sake of it, I'd like to point out that the post should have ended there, giving either Klear or me a chance to respond. No need to explain yourself (I can take a pretty good guess at what happened here :) ) or to edit the post, though, I can roll with this.

Right, while Josie and Hugo are turning this wonderful story into a Three Stooges episode, I've been digging for fresh blood. So far Cole10000 and Nightfalcon have volunteered, and both have managed to come up with exquisite characters; in the background I'm still working on stuff with 5_dog_knight, who may or may not be joining us later.

Klear, if you're receiving this, wakey wakey eggs-n-bakey. I'll be sure to give esther a good poking as well. Time to get this show on the road again.

Yup, I'm here... I'll reread the story thread to get back into it and probably post something in a few hours... =)

Good times, good times.

I'll give esther a call today, see if there's anything she might want to do about her last IC post, as it's a bit heavy on the actions, with all its ifs and buts.

While the events unfold upstairs, on the ground floor a new face arrives. A clean shaven young man just arriving in this part of London sporting a heavy set of spectacles and carrying what appears to be his luggage takes a moment to look around the inn he currently finds himself in.

It might be that this man does not arrive alone... please allow me to work out the last couple of details with Nightfalcon, since I have a plan that will tie you together nicely from the get-go.

And welcome to the story, of course, good to have you aboard.

Alright, not a problem, just give me the go ahead and I'll change it as needed.

Cool, although I think we can just take it from there.

Got frustrated at the lack of progress in the previous post, but promise to stop manipulating other players actions from now on ;)

Excellent. With some fresh blood introduced, the pace should pick up a bit, though it'll still be a far cry from face-to-face pen and paper rpg. Easy does it.

I've sent Nightfalcon another e-mail earlier today; due to unforeseen circumstances he's been otherwise occupied over the last two weeks. The plan is to tie his character to Thaddeus via the latter's mentor. Professor Charles Ivensten will be an acquaintance of Nightfalcon's character, who was deemed an excellent chaperone for Thaddeus' introduction to 'real life'. We either start the two of you together upon your arrival at the inn, or Thaddeus will arrive first, having been instructed to meet his new companion there. Based on what new information the next day will bring, I'll take either path tomorrow.

@Cole, I just had another look at your character, but you seem to have posted your pre-Blessing character. Kindly update and include the necessary info on the professor as well.
