Alice can teach any skill she knows to the other survivors (I'd say she could even teach Rifle), thus increasing everyone's chance for survival. She can also learn, and then teach what she learns. She does not need a classroom in order to teach. There is also another secret of hers that could be quite useful later on. Most of her secrets would take time to be useful, so they haven't been of use yet. Our plans are still up in the air. We're going to pause after Chapter 1 (another couple of rounds) and then continue with Chapter 2 here in January. If we move the game, we may then restart and expand into several locations as we described. Even if we do (which is not certain yet), I can keep running this adventure here as long as we still have players who want to continue. Things are still in the planning stages, and we've got time to decide how we're going to work this. If we do move, it will take some time to arrange anyway. When the new characters are introduced for Chapter 2, you can choose one of them to pick up. You can also have a third character - maybe we can work something out with that hiker idea you had. If we do move and expand the game, the hiker could also be one of the characters in the campsite story. EDIT: Stompie, I also forwarded Duke's secrets to you in a PM, which Welsh just sent to me today.
