Looks exciting so far. Good job with the photo editing, I didn't realize the first picture was LEGO at first.

Thanks.  I've been playing with this photo for two days.  It was tricky, but I like the look of it.

Dragonator: On a side note, Mark Williams needs to show his picture somewhere.  It will be very hard for other characters to learn "Who's Who" without a picture of your character as your avatar or signature.

Looks amazing! So what were we supposed to put for the qualifications section on the application form?

If I told you that, it would spoil my secret application/interview process.  You know,  I may do this again.

Great start!!! The opening scene had certainly gotten the tempo going. By the way, could I request all players to place their character's name under your sig for easy reference. Thanks in advance.  :blush:

According to the manifest, we still have one passenger to arrive before orientation begins.
You do not have the passenger list at this time, but good try Schmelt. :laugh:   You're making me hungry!  I'm going into the kitchen now to have an Ego Waffle.

Have a complimentary ROFL-Waffle, on the house.

Steve, why don't you head off to the engine so you can be here for orientation?
I think you mean "so YOU (as in the Conductor) can be here for orientation".  It would be hard for Steve to be driving and here at the same time (even with Dynamic Movement). :wink:

Camping, for less than 24 hours. Apologies for not saying this right away, I didn't know that so much could happen in a short period of time. :tongue:

It's not haunted, unless Brickster added his own Grave Stone curse to it. :tongue: It can drive itself though, thanks to Power Functions.
