Sounds like you've done a fantastic job getting your heroes into big trouble! Nice job making things hard on them.

If some vital item or piece of information exists and they absolutely MUST have it to resolve the plot and send the story toward its conclusion, then you will simply have to devise a way for them to acquire it, whether on their own or by way of some "inside man" helping them out under the noses of the bad guys or some other way.

Probably not a whole lot of help, I know, but I wouldn't even dream of trying to tell you what needs to happen in your own story!

Write on.

Iiiiiiiiiiiii'm pretty sure this is spam. A higher quality of spambot than we've gotten in the past, but spam nonetheless.

If you look at Williamhawk's posts, there is a recurring trend of him presenting a problem, asking for our help, saying 'I didn't find the right solution on the internet' (phrased the same way every time), and then providing a reference link that isn't set up to be actually clickable followed by a link to something completely unrelated.

So... yeah. Not a good thing.

Well crap...and here I was thinking I could offer some helpful advice. I think I might have responded to a couple other of his posts today too.
Oh well, at least I'm getting my post counts up. lol
