Actually - the summaries wouldn't make it easier for the people to join.
Going solely off the summaries is a fairly good way to fuck up the whole of what's happening.
The last game ran with them, and the only problem we had was with KC - and that had nothing to do with the summaries and everything to do with her being an immense idiot.
Essentially what the summaries are, just main points that happened - without actually giving away the rest of the detail in the posts. If the summaries were that bad, I wouldn't ask for them; but so far, they have caused no problems - at all.1/12/2012 - Rocoa was taken over by the Apotheoses Army. Ivan met with Port Jinn officials, including long time friend, Abbar. Seth's transgressions leads to his untimely demise, and Ivan declares war on Port Jinn.
1/12/2012 - Jarod successfully heals his first patient outside of the university's supervision. He says goodbye to everything he has known. Breaks oaths to follow the will of Asclepius, makes his way to the One-Eyed-Troll. On his way he meets Rebekha, the woman whose child he had healed. She tells him that the gray is in port jinn. This troubles Jarod, but he puts his faith in Asclepius and does as he was bid by his spirit animal.
1/13/2012 Landon sees that crazy shit and freaks right the fuck out. He follows the poster to the One-Eyed Troll and jumps into a bottle, oblivious to most of the things going on but especially to any gods at work.
01/15/2012 Mirya scrambles through the woods outside of Port Jiin, and is met by her spirit animal, telling her to head to the One-eyed Troll. Upon realisation that she's actually in her spirit world, she begins to wake up, and continues her trek to Port Jiin. Upon entrance, she is met by the gristly sight of someone being dragged across the street, sharp stones and litter tearing his insides to pieces. But she continues forward, arriving at the One-eyed troll and stumbles in. Not quite as gracefully as Mirya had hoped.
01/15/2012 Fairst is in Port Jinn as an attache to Ivan, but escapes from Eclava's clutches instead. Goes insane in one street, kills a guard and butchers his body to pieces; then remembers why he was there in the first place, heads to the One-Eyed Troll and screams for Abbar.
01/18/2012 Landon meets Caderyn, and promptly insults the shit out of him. Partly not on purpose -- but at the same time, on purpose.
