Welcome to the glitzy, murky world of 1946 Hollywood, a smoggy film-noir landscape filled with glamourous starlets, flamboyantly corrupt studio heads, and wicked, pampered cats with hidden agendas; a city of unsolved murders, snoopy screenwriters, scheming PR flacks, and a shadowy, celebrity-ridden cult dabbling in knowledge better left alone -- knowledge which could destroy the world's present and doom its future, if the dreadful promise of the Year of the Black Jaguar is fulfilled...

Mailing list responder shutting down until Sunday
For anyone who's likely to be registering with the mailing list today: the responder will only be working until 2 PM GMT or so, and then will be down until probably around 9 PM GMT on Sunday. We have a convention appearance this weekend, and I don't trust the mailer unsupervised at the moment: it's safer to shut it down rather than have it email the entire planet for some obscure reason.
Meanwhile, the last challenge grant (for the moment) will be going up today: and the buttons for "full subscription", "full subscription with donation", and "Chapter One only" will be going up on the website within a couple of hours. A broadcast message from the mailing list will be going out to everyone at that point.
Also, just in case anybody's getting concerned: Chapter One is nearly done...I just haven't updated the progress graphic on the web page. The thing is kind of complex to update, and I'm looking for a better way to do it.
