Anyone got suggestions as to what we might all do if we have to self isolate, to pass the time?

I recently got one of these, although must confess haven't done much with it as yet:
https://www.chaosium.com/call-of-cthulhu-starter-set/
Comes with a solo adventure so could play in splendid isolation.  Just add pencils and paper. No need for WiFi or electricity so could also play in a dark cave.  Preferably one with random draughts and deep shadows for better atmosphere...

Or maybe catch up on all those promised  journal articles there never seems to be time to do properly.

I'm currently walking on my treadmill whilst watching caving videos on youtube

. . . and typing posts at the same time; a fine example of multitasking.   :thumbsup:

Well we're now being asked to work from home. Shame I'd already booked the week off...
At least I didn't need to feel guilty about doing some social distancing and going underground today  :)

I’m glad Roger and Jackie are looking after themselves. Would be more upset if anything happened to them than a temporary closure of the centre of the universe!

If we all hide in caves would we end up as Morlocks?

Yeah - like George Orwell, maybe H G Wells was a prophet . . .

I reckon we'd all end up looking like those things from Descent. Some east Dales cavers are already half way there

Not too bad, I assume you men the scantily clad females with ice axes.

Although nowadays I think they'd be classed as inadequately clad, rather than scantily...

Yup, they don't seem to be wearing their oversuits!
