We finally finished the saga of the Alabaster Bouquet this past Thursday. We've added a few players over the last few weeks and I think the game is starting to gain the momentum I'd hoped for.
I'm anxious to continue, as my notes for the next chapter are geared toward filling out each character's past a bit and working on their goals.
It was revealed that our Monk's character would die at the hands of the Master of Dim Mak, so we will see where that takes him.
I'm hoping to work on a couple of major arcs that take time to simmer while dealing with smaller, more personal stuff to drive the plot for at least the next several sessions.
