Well... they've at least winnowed it down to the three, dear. I'm pretty sure it will go like last week. There will be a flurry of activity right before the deadline. I'm sure whatever they manage to pull together will be worth the suspense!

If they miss a post it will make narrating much easier

I finally managed to make a post in the bar! Apologies if there were any prompts that I missed!

We keep everyone in suspense for over a month (I even get called Admin Dirk), and now that it's out you call me dear... I swoon. You make me blush through the internet's ones and zeros.

As an addendum to my post, I'm of course aware that the PCs that were eliminated aren't able to leave the bar.

But now it is time for the narrative to conclusively explain this to Xue-Mihun as well.
I hope she doesn't die.

Well, I think that's the first use of Middle English in this year's Outplay!

I've decided on a theme now. In each of my posts I shall introduce an element of Middle-English literature; I have Chaucer for the next post. Nominations of poets (must be English language, between 1200-1500 AD) are welcome. I don't promise to use them but I will take a look

@bhelogan Eh, sorry for overstepping with the armour of words, I figured it would be fine due to the post order but was too impatient to wait for you to come online to check (plus I had already posted when Henry wisely advised me to do so!)

@LadyNotAGirl:
In regards to your last post in the bar, is "poofing" the established behaviour of what happens when one tries to exit the bar? On a meta level I'm completely aware that there will be some kind of explanation that prevents the losers from leaving, but Xue-Mihun is not at a stage where she'll just take Muffie's word that she is stuck here. Basically, if she is unable to breach or will be displaced back into the bar when she steps through the door, then the next person answering to her will be Fu. If there are no satisfying explanations to deter her from doing so, Xue-Mihun is absolutely at the stage where she might escalate. I'm not sure if Imveros is around or would read my post to handle that part of the narration for me, but the degree of what she'll do next will depend on the exact narrative reason why she can't leave. And maybe I've missed it among all our posts, but at the moment I only remember metaknowledge reasons for why she wouldn't try leaving the bar (which is part of the reason why I've kept her quiet though mostly it was my own schedule so long). So if there are no other established facts about how the adventurers are unable to exit the bar, because I don't want to make too much work for anybody I'll come up with something myself. I'm sure it's fine as long as Xue-Mihun can't leave the bar, right?

@edit:
So really, my post was less of a setup for a dramatic exit but more to put Xue-Mihun back in her place.

Oh no, it's great, I'm just setting up the ability to have some group banter and group activity fun times. From my end Xue is going to explode, best we all be on our toes and be ready for it. Also, from the get-go, Couch Girlfriend has been able to somehow see what is happening before everyone else, and have inside information (through her phone) but she has been keeping that knowledge from the Crossing Companions. So she wouldn't expect Xue to just take her word for it, even if she just tells her the reason she cannot leave.

@LadyNotAGirl:
I was contemplating whether Xue-Mihun would notice and paired with Muffie's testimony that's she's not a Companion herself, I had to weigh between Muffie and Fu who'd fall into her line of fire first. Since I quite like Muffie and also don't like PvP, that decision was easy.

But I'm getting ahead of myself, for now she's simply going to try walking through the door.

Also, if you look back at post #6, you Xue will have noticed this, were Tikum entered 6 times, but never was able to exit. Here.

Might be something to have as a flashback for Xue if you need it, so it doesn't feel like being Meta. Also, don't hurt me, I'm the cute one.

Oh yeah, that post was very flavourful! My interpretation had been that this scene of entering and leaving was just part of what made up Tikum's memories, not that she physically entered and left, but while I really liked that mysterious side of Tikum's character, maybe I'd just gotten confused.

Also, no worries about Muffie getting hurt. Xue-Mihun (kind of) doesn't want to hurt the innocent.

Unfortunately Middle English poetry is very sparse on references to being hit with buildings...
