We came up a bit short tonight.  We need 8 people to start the Dr. Q Task Force.  We'll try again next Sunday.  Level range is 40-44.  It takes place in the Shadow Shard, and may be the longest TF in the game.  It's worth 111 merits if we can finish it.  Given our typical rate of play, I figure it will take about 6-8 weeks.

We did it!  We kicked off the Doc Q TF!  We had a full team:  Sharp Mind, Dark Lady Mandrake, Katt A Strophic, Corvalis, Mental Machine, Sham-Rock, Miteo, and Sheriff Smoke.  With most of the team at level 40, and the enemies at level 46 (thanks to a couple of exemped 50's) we had a few scary moments, and a couple of near team wipes.  We managed to keep up our momentum, though, and we kept pushing on.  I lost count of the number of dings, but I think most of the team is 41 or 42 now.  Things should get easier from here on out.  I certainly hope so - at this rate we'll be lucky to finish before June!

We spent the evening rescuing various research teams from the Rularuu. 

1.  Defeat 50 Rularuu at Foxtrot.
2.  Rescue guys from a cave.
3.  Defeat 50 Rularuu at Bravo.
4.  Defeat 50 Rularuu at X-Ray.
5.  Rescue guys from a cave.

By the end, we had tentative evidence suggesting that the Crey might be attacking researchers in the Shadow Shard.  Next week - gather more evidence!

Sorry, but something has come up, so I doubt I'll be able to get on tonight.  If I make it back in tonight I'll hop on, but I don't think I will be back before 10 cent. 
Good hunting to the team.

We beat up Crey and Rularu.  We're somewhere around the halfway point of the TF.  Apparently there's some law against Crey being in the Shadow Shard, and against them kidnapping Portal Corp research staff.  We've caught them red-handed, captured numerous Crey employees and their bosses, taken over entire bases full of Crey, seized numerous Crey computers, and rescued many Portal Corp researchers who had been kidnapped by Crey.  In light of this evidence, we've been authorized to begin an investigation into possible wrong-doing by Crey.  Yeah.  That should only take another dozen missions or so.

We're almost done! 

We've wiped out every Crey base in the Shadow Shard now.  We've started wiping out Crey bases back in Paragon City, trying to figure out how they were getting to the Shadow Shard.  Crey kidnapped Rularuu and dragged them out to Paragon City, and the Rularuu have some way of making portals to get themselves back to the Shadow Shard.  The Crey are using something else though.  Something built by...  Nemesis!

That was enough information so we could find both sides of the Crey portal between Paragon City and the Shadow Shard.  We took out both of those, and fought off a Crey attack on a Portal Corp base, but it turns out there are even more Crey portal thingies around. 

It's like Shadow Shard whack-a-mole.  Anyhow, that gives us a bunch more identical tech bases to go into, so we can fight the same enemies over again, and then click those annoying four-simultaneous-clicks glowies again.  When we've done enough of those, we will clean up some excess Rularuu and then we're done.  We might be done next week. 

So, here's the thing.  Things  First thing:  it would be great if everyone could make it next week.  After all these weeks, I'd hate to see anyone get left out at the end.  I'd hate it so much that I'd be willing to postpone finishing the TF for another week, but it would be nice to wrap it up sooner rather than later.

The other thing:  What do we do next?  That might deserve its own post, now that I think about it.
