For Eerie's eyes only:
If my memory serves accurate, so far, we've got Jones as Rogers, Caleb as Marston, you and I somewhere in the mix (I might take the part of Lombard, perhaps Armstrong), with a potential Emman as someone (Armstrong, if I pick Lombard, or perhaps someone else), with five remaining spots.
I've invited Abigail to join, so we'll wait for her reply.
Here's Tracker's poem so far, styled like a nursery rhyme, of course:
Ten Little Aethasians
Ten little Aethasians visiting a castle divine;
One would rather leave and then there were Nine.
Nine little Aethasians walking through the gate;
One locked himself out and then there were Eight.
Eight little Aethasians walking on a floor uneven;
One fell down and then there were Seven.
Seven little Aethasians fighting in the mix;
One ran away and then there were Six.
Six little Aethasians going for a dive;
A Crocodial got one and then there were Five.
Five little Aethasians taking a tour;
One got lost and then there were Four.
Four little Aethasians climbing a tree;
A red herring caught one and then there were Three.
Three little Aethasians sitting by the flue;
A flame took one and then there were Two.
Two little Aethasians trying to have fun;
One lost the game and then there was One.
One little Aethasian left all alone;
He outlasted the rest.
And then he was done.
So, Caleb will be the first one to go, and then two people after him, with Jones being the- fourth, if I remember correctly? (I lost the book a while back, so I'm relying solely on my memory.)
- Anthony Marston is Caleb.
- Mrs. Rogers is undecided.
- General John Macarthur is undecided.
- Mr. Rogers is Jones.
- Emily Brent is undecided.
- Justice Lawrence Wargrave is possibly Tracker Dreadwalker.
- Armstrong is possibly me.
- William Henry Blore is undecided.
- Phillip Lombard is possibly me.
- Vera Claythorne is undecided.
Correct me if I'm wrong on any of these counts.
Of course, we'll have to alter the characters' reasons for being there, but I'm sure we could figure that out.
Do decide who you'll be, won't you?
Also, Isaac Morris won't need a stand-in character, mainly because Tracker plans to actually participate in this final "game" of his, kidnapping only the best of the best for his last bow.
Oh, and the setting of these events?
Lightblast Manor, a massive goth castle bought from a distant relative of Nautilus' who ran into financial troubles by Tracker (under a false identity, of course), which sits on a desolate rock far off the coast of the Snowmoors, which Nautilus has no clue exists.
I think I've said enough for now, so I'll let you respond before I say anything else.
