Good Day All, I know that we have several plot ideas up and I promise, we will get to using them as site-wide plots. However, in order to avoid a mega time-jump (which we will almost have to do for part of the winter months because in Montana, no one is going to be doing much during the winter)...I am suggesting the following... We set the time span to September - November for the next episode. We make it an open plot episode (i.e. multiple smaller plots instead of 1 overreaching theme). This way we can bring some of the Steelgrave plots to fruition and some of the ideas that JulieS has for the Wentworths and Miss Katherine. Also, any current plots that span several days / weeks, etc., can be split, moved, and continued. Discussion and feedback is welcome. However, hold additional plot ideas or post them separately. This thread is for discussing the next episode only. Thanks! @Members @Moderators @Players @Sr. Moderator
Synopsis There is a murder (don't who and don't know why at the moment) Theme Could be a couple of episodes - finding the murderer and then a trial. Needs to be developed. Characters Requested Maybe everyone. Even if they are not suspects, it will still be the talk of the town. Anything Else This could possibly lead into a jury trial (lots more possibilities there)
Synopsis With winter coming there could be a blizzard. A lot of story possibilities with this e.g. characters getting trapped; cabin fever especially if it lasts for a few days. Theme I suppose it would be an episode. Characters Requested Everyone. Anything Else Not at the moment.
Summary A very large earthquake strikes southwest Montana along the Yellowstone border. It is felt as far away as Kalispell. Stories and plots will revolve around the the town before and after the quake. Theme The theme for this episode will be major life upheavals - good and bad. These can be specific to the aftermath of the earthquake itself or ongoing personal stories. Notes In 1959, a 7.5 - 7.8 earthquake struck Montana at Hebgen Lake so there is a history for large quakes in the area. Should we want the epicenter at a distance (Hebgen would be approximately 450 miles from Kalispell), we might need to upscale the quake on the scale. If we want to set it closer, perhaps with an epicenter around Flathead Lake, we would have to downscale the size. Earthquakes can and do occur in unusual areas, those not associated with seismic activity. For example, in 1811 - 1812, very large earthquakes struck the New Madrid area (near Memphis, Tennessee). The largest quake is estimated at around an 8.0. An large section of land dropped about three feet and the Mississippi River ran backward for a period of time to fill it in, creating Reelfoot Lake.
