((OOC: Anyone from ACME can add to this, just try to stick to the rules about including someone else’s name and the other posting guidelines. This is purely experimental, and if it takes off, maybe it could be a bigger thing; and, if not, no big deal.))

((Also OOC: The WiFi I’m connected through has been flaky lately, so I’ll check in when it lets me. Just keep it rolling if I don’t check in on it.))



About four months after I was brought on as an Agent, I noticed how aside from working together, most of the other Agents had nothing to do with each other outside of the Agency. Considering how hard some of the cases were, I figured they could use some kind of activity to unwind once in a while.
There was a suggestion board outside the Agency lunchroom for anything anyone could think of. The suggestions were collected every few days. I left a note on the board suggesting a few different things, and asked for any other ideas: softball, baseball, bowling, pool, volleyball. I also made sure to mention that call-outs would of course take priority. I also mentioned that ‘anyone would be welcome to participate, of course’ towards the bottom of the note.

Within a couple days, a fair amount of the board was covered with suggestions. The next day, the suggestions were all collected, and a note was left in their place saying that we would be getting a survey in a few days about everything that everyone suggested.

About a week later, we all found a survey in our e-mails, asking to check on the popularity of each suggestion. Within a few days, the results were in and posted to the board, along with a sign-up sheet for those who wanted to participate. A couple days later, we had our first outing as a group.


((OOC again: Each Agent who wants to can make a suggestion in their post, and once everyone who wants has added (we’ll give it a week or until no new posts are made for a bit), we can do a proper poll, and go from there based on the results.
We don’t have to 100% accurate, but keep in mind that certain activities would typically have limited space (bowling alley, pool hall, places like that), but teams are welcome for a sport, we’ll just discuss that through chat or PMs.))

Dragon Strike Board Game, so that we may unite to find the Evil Lord and drive a stake through his heart! In a sportsmanlike way of course.

We can bowl in the Evil Lord Teraptis's lair; he'll be pretty upset.

Alice, "Strength",Luce,
I'm not sure this is considered a sport but it gets you to move and walk? Have you all ever heard of Geocaching? It's treasure hunting. You're given GPS coordinates and clues to where it is. You got a logbook and usually, you can take something and put something in its place or add to the cache. There are different types of geocaching too from so small only a paper would fit in, to large ones. a "Classic" one you trade items in a military ammunition box. There are also ones where you have to solve puzzles and gather clues to find them. I've done a few myself and it's pretty fun.

The rules are like you have to obey local laws and no food allowed because it attracts animals.

° Bowling sounds fun, and if we get enough people, we can have more than one team.
° Definitely signing up for hiking + geocaching
°Along the lines of what Tenchi suggested, competitive board and tabletop games sound pretty fun.
°Perhaps skating? Roller skating, skate boarding, and seasonal ice skating. Interested parties may organize roller derby competition, hocky matches, and other related competitions, if they wish.

    IRL: thankfully, I have the computer to run it (8-core 4GHz AMD, 32gigs RAM, Radeon 7830 1gig 1GHz, GTX 730 2 gig, 4 HDDs)... I can get on average 160FPS in Minecraft with all settings maxed, usually more

    "season" 3 of the netflix show came out yesterday, but i was saying you can hardly call it a season since it's only five episodes

    Heck, even the Pres. has it now. IRL: I'm amazed I haven't caught it yet considering most of the time when I go outside, I'm not wearing a mask

  • Jon Eckart Jon Eckart:
    IRL: If you believe in other things, if it makes a difference (maybe it does... maybe I'm being kept safe, considering I don't douse myself in sanitizer or usually wear a mask), maybe the pentacle/arrowhead/peace symbol/confession dial/shrunken quarter somehow keeps me safe (always wear it outside, even for a cig)

    you do realize that people not wearing masks is the reason things are still as bad as they are))

    @Jacqueline Hyde ((don't think a simple mask is gonna stop the virus, especially considering my medical knowledge)) I've managed through all the other flu outbreaks without catching them. It'll calm down on its own, same as any virus.
