[Spec] who is doing what and when?
The one overriding question I have about this story right now is who is doing what at the locations and when.
Everyone in the story, including us, is directly or indirectly touching the locations where the objects are. Even Eddie Pope reports on the events that are happening there.
I can't pin down the order and I can't pin down who is doing what.
Working backwards in time..I only know for sure that in a one week cycle:
Eddie writes about our efforts and implies that the TK (tarot killer) is at the Indian Mounds at the same time we are.
We retrieve the boxes containing items that are specific to each person who died in book 1. Each box is dedicated to an individual. So far we have had: Kevin, Alan, Jennifer and StuR. Each has been at a different Indian Mound.
Art updates his site and shows us where the items are located. Again, his update is specific to the individual. As far as we know, the only reason Art has for posting these locations is to direct us to the site to get the boxes.
Dr. Riley updates her podcasts with information about a location on her map. The locations correspond to the Indian Mounds. Lillian is helping her investigate, though I'm not sure of Lillian's role.
Howard, who turns out to be alive (YAY!) is doing something around the location as he works with Exu (we only have Dr. Riley's word for this, but I have no reason to doubt her.)
BA, and the dreamers, is active in the dreamscape which may or may not correlate to the locations. (My money says they correlate, but in that odd dreamscape way which isn't a direct correlation to the real world) We only have sploit's blog on this, but, again, no reason to doubt him. BA seems to be having long sessions on Wednesdays. Sploit is in that dreamscape as well.
Bryce, according to Eddie, is going from place to place. Again, not sure when Bryce is there, if he is there before, during or after the ritual, or maybe the entire time. Bryce is not a dreamer and isn't seeing BA's dreamscape. We don't completely trust Eddie.
Peter from Forsythe Security is onto Eddie and his reports. He asked Art to do something about Eddie. (Art works for Peter) But we don't know if Peter is behind some of this.
Exu - who knows where he is or what he is doing. He is part of the Council and has had to sign an Edict limiting what he can say publicly. Exu remains elusive to my understanding.
Dr. Jake Gateson a doctor-imposter who visited Bryce when Bryce was in the hospital, had a two hour session with him, to what end we don't know. Gateson's interview with Eddie He must be involved in this in some way, if only through directing Bryce.
The dreamers on www.nightmareconfessions.com . Sploit's site for us and other dreamers to call in nightmares. I'm not sure how often this updates but it is set up for weekly-- Sunday to Sunday-- postings.
