This is a site for discussing roleplaying games. Have fun doing so, but there is one major rule: do not discuss political issues that aren't directly and uniquely related to the subject of the thread and about gaming. While this site is dedicated to free speech, the following will not be tolerated: devolving a thread into unrelated political discussion, sockpuppeting (using multiple and/or bogus accounts), disrupting topics without contributing to them, and posting images that could get someone fired in the workplace (an external link is OK, but clearly mark it as Not Safe For Work, or NSFW). If you receive a warning, please take it seriously and either move on to another topic or steer the discussion back to its original RPG-related theme.
The message boards have been upgraded. Please log in to your existing account by clicking here. It will ask twice, so that it can properly update your password and login information.

Yes, this is a game. No I can't give you too many more details. This is taking place in the United States.

If you have seen an 8' weather baloon moored near a road in your area, PLEASE let me know. Not kidding. PM me here. Thanks!

Quick!  Cue the "Lol Wut" Pear!
I start from his boots and work my way up. It takes a good half a roll to encompass his jolly round belly alone. Soon, Father Christmas is completely wrapped in clingfilm. It is not quite so good as wrapping Roy but it is enjoyable nonetheless and is certainly a feather in my cap.

'Both Father Christmas and Roy Orbison are completely wrapped in clingfilm,' I say to Jetta.

I place Santa next to Roy and stand in between them. With some difficulty I wrap all three of us up together as best I can. We enjoy a quiet but satisfying yuletide until people from the social services come to release us.

God Bless us one and all.

If I were you I'd try sneaking into Area 51, I hear one of these weather balloons crashed there.

:P

Its going to be hard to find them yet, judging from the website schedule, the balloons aren't launched until December 5, 2009.

If I give you an accurate lat/long for one of the balloons, and your team wins, what's my cut of the $40K?  :)

There are ten. I just checked and they haven't been deployed yet, but keep an eye out for them. They will be in the continental US.

99 balloons is not over my head, but your first sentence asked if it was just one.

Funny how there were no balloons in the centre and the north of the country.
