To everyone I think! Perhaps they can turn it on and off though, during that window of opportunity...

Hey Maerahn - you can ask questions here, or if you want anything specific to your chapter then by all means send me an email and I'll respond there.

They can be seen by everyone when here: For the duration of the time that they are allotted to help a 'Scrooge' they're able to be visible and interact, although not with loved ones (as per the info in the pack - if appropriate to your chapter).

If they’re doing that ‘deep hypnosis’ thing where they basically take someone on a very real imaginary journey, then the limit is just the imagination of the Marley! He can have that person *think* they are interacting, or have them think they’re just standing there watching.

In the spirit of NiaD story specifics (like the existence on Marleys) should be addressed by Mr Piggy privately. We are collaborating on the plot. Part of the fun is the possibility that you have visible Marleys and I have invisible Marleys.

Some people right now will be going... Marleys? Is that a type of quaint English jam?

Dang it piggy! Stop being so helpful!

So Marleys can interact with anyone not specifically forbidden. That unhinged my entire chapter.

No... it's Vic-k's brain sucking genetically engineered, world domination focused breed of pigeons.

Half the day gone, and I'm just starting to look at mine. Though to be fair, I kinda expected this. I was out Friday night, and then I was sleeping -- on a 5 hour differential -- so although it's past noon in London, it's 7:30 here. Knowing I ought to finish this in 8 hours feels like tightening the screws a little. I don't know why, but as a pantser, I thought I'd just be able to rattle something off in an hour, and then start tinkering with it. I feel like I need time now to absorb what I'm working with. And to do research on the finance world, which is totally not my thing. =x

For those panicking about the areas out of their experience (like the SC redneck who may be typing his) I will quote an uncle who quoted someone else quoting an unknown source
if you can't dazzle them with your brilliance, bull sh!t burns just as bright and we both know your full of it.


Seriously though... we all know this is a fun way to test our own ability to adapt and adjust. Poor Piggy has been dealing with the dumba$$ redneck asking about venacular all morning. And now he blows my whole plot out of the water. I havneed no idea where I'm going but I've got time to figure it out.

Are suggesting the ability to alter visible state?

I think I said to someone else "They can be seen by everyone when here... by default— but they can whisk themselves away pretty quickly"

Okay here's a definitive position: Have a Marley do what they want to do. If they want to be visible while there, they can be. If they want to not be seen - that's cool too.

I still think you were doing that because you think it's funny just to get me to send you emails with lists of swear words in them.

It's a colloqual term for "bone-in rib roast"; to distinguish from the kind that has the bone already removed, the longer term is "Marley bone".
