It's Day 39, when should the rescue take place?
Immediately (Day 40)
Some Other Time (specify in comments)
Now, intermittent plans, things you want to see happen/role-play before the rescue? Suggestions, discussion, etc. (Also feel free to email and plot amongst yourselves.)
ETA: By the way, just because the rescue is slated for one or two weeks or even three months, doesn't mean we have to RP the whole time. A few mentions of pivotal events would be just as good.
