So! Amanda is fully onboard, and now so is Flyboy! There really is a young girl in danger, and they are going to try to save her! But what did Spooky just find out? And are they really not going to like it?

Tune in this Saturday to find out! Hope to see you there! :grinning:

Possibilities. Ambrosia is actually:

Dead
A stripper in Reno
An old retiree in Boca Raton
A fruit salad with marshmallows & sour cream
An alcoholic beverage in a classic sci-fi franchise

Which suggests that we may be looking at a different blonde. A platinum one.

We have a winner! :wink:

(Of course, your other, platinum theory is intriguing…)

I actually had it last week. :smiley:

Isn’t “ambrosia” a form of a word for food or drink of the “gods?” Lol. “A stripper in Reno”!!! I love you Nate, made me laugh. Thanks for that.

Thanks. I have a strange sense of humor at times.

And yes, it was the food served on Mount Olympus in Greek mythology. Please note that “Sircea” is not THAT far from “Circe”, who also hails from the region.

(The beverage was “nectar”, served by the cupbearers Hebe & Ganymede)

Alex has confirmed that she is Kirke from Greek myth. Her origin card gives her real name as Kirca.

I’d missed that. Cool.

Hm. I can think of five places where I would not like to find Ambrosia: the morgue, the hospital, the church they just came from, the refrigerator, and Spooky’s bed. With any luck, all my guesses will be incorrect.

The morgue was my first thought.

that’s a plot ender. The story needs a character to hook to the rest of the story. Now Ambrosia could have been Sircea in disguise (way to obvious for good storytelling)… Ambrosia might also have been duped into helping, or she might be a fun-fledged conspirator.

Hooray, all my guesses were incorrect!

Your guesses may have been incorrect, but I agree with not wanting to find Ambrosia in any of those places. :slight_smile:

Interesting. Yes, I suppose it is useful to keep her alive. We did spend a fair amount of time setting her up in Chapter 2. Be a shame to not take advantage of that. :slight_smile:
