    No direct tags this week, more in the order of setup, backstory type responses, singles of course, until the update goes up next Monday.

    For any who need it, feel free to PM me with questions, for anything, to be able to write your responses.

    For reference, based on the OP, pashatemur’s Na’die, TheAdmiral’s Aya-Carolina, Corellian_Outrider’s character, BobaMatt’s Thufir, and HanSolo29’s character are at the Grand Audience on Kaitain. Sinrebirth’s Ike is in the meeting with Rabban on Arrakis, Mitth_Fisto’s Randolpho is at the transport in Arrakeen, as is BobaMatt’s secondary (should you desire to play them). And the Fremen, greyjedi125’s Naveed, Shadowsun’s Shamir, and Darth Tormentum’s Shafra are all spread out on Arrakis, preparing for raids.

    One thing I haven't mentioned is I do plan weekly updates, so if responses are done by end of the day Sunday the update should be able to go up on Monday.

    Oh and be prepared for small, like a couple weeks at the most, time jumps here and there, not often and not right in the middle of conflicts, but they'll happen sometimes.

    Sorry to see you go, I wish you well in your other endeavors here.

    For the rest of the cast, the first update will be up on Monday. A decent bit of it is already written, just awaiting responses to finalize it.

    My goodness... watched Dune today at the movies. Amazing. Very faithful to the book, absolutely hyped for this game.

    Awesome stuff.

    I’m looking forward to seeing it though I have to wait a bit longer. It doesn’t come out till December here.

    It has quite a lot of positive feedback so far. Just hope they green light production for the next film.

    Smiles at all the responses so far, pulls the hood up over his head, fingers steepled before him, a dusky "Exxxxccccelllleeennnttt!" coming from the shadows of the hood.

    Awwww, it's just a matter of getting used to the subject matter. And you're definitely good at that. And wait, one of those I haven't seen yet, in thread...

    Umm, I have not watched any version of Dune nor have I read any of the books. All I did was read the OP and check the Wiki on a couple named things. 8-}

    I’m not that versed in the realm. I’ve seen parts of the miniseries years ago but can’t really remember it... and a friend used to have that PC game, Dune 2000. I used the wiki and also have to thank @darthbernael for answering my barrage of questions :p

    I did stumble upon this which might be of help:

    I saw the movie ages ago and am marginally familiar with the world. I did a lot of Wiki reading and got my head back in the 'sand' as it were. I was actually channeling my inner 'Sinre'. I'd imagine @Sinrebirth , you'd have no problem flowing in Spice in short order. :)

    EDIT: I also watched the new movie this past weekend, so I'm super excited for what happens next. :D

    I read the book back in another life, saw the older film with Sting as Feyd, and saw a snippet or two from the series. Fortunately, Dune seems enormously popular and has a huge fan base. There's lots of information out there! So I read some. I was very concerned I get my post right. You can't actually throw a virtual rock without finding what you need online.

    Frank Herbert is just another rper who put together a game and we are all guests in his head, worms in his desert, scooping up tidbits and leaving ...eh...er...trails!

    Come on in, @Sinrebirth and all, the water's great!

    I understand @Adalia-Durron, but it is sad not to have your talent in the game.

    No problem. I didn't want to rush you both. And look forward to the combo.

    OOC: I forgot to mention, everyone is in approximately the same place as with the OP. Certain movement has occurred on Arrakis and is noted in the update.
