Game Date: February 5, 2011
At the start of game, all the players had just arrived at the Eugene, OR airport. After retrieving their bags, the players met up with Thabiti, who packed the players into the van and drove the players out to Chase’s house in the nearby mountains. Once there, the players finally met Chance Williams.
Chase’s reasons for this conclusion are as follows:
- Steven had just started Chance’s longevity treatment three weeks prior. The first treatment is designed to strength the body in preperation for the rest of the treatment. Therefore, although Steven had a cardiac condition, it is very unlikely that he would have died.
- Although Steven is a veteran of WWII, he does not have a plot in Arlington.
- The Obituary claims that he was cremated, but Chance knows that Steven had specified in his will that he was not to be cremated.
Chance has requested that the players find out what has become of his friend. He would go himself, but a paradox flaw does not allow him to leave his house. Chance has secured lodging for the players at Farstep chantry in Boise. However, to gain the players admitance, first all of the players had to swear an Oath that they would not disclose the location to anyone not already authorized. All of the players took the oath, and were given the address for Farstep Chantry.
The players all then enjoyed a tasty dinner prepared by Chance, got to know each other a little bit, and got some personal views, habits, and history out in the open. They were also treated to a demonstration of Pavlovian training. After all took a jog (except Alina and Chance, who spent the time tinkering), everyone retired to their rooms for the night with the plan of driving to Boise the next day.
