Not to be that guy, but I-90 doesn't pass through Pittsburgh. The section of I-90 contained within Pennsylvania is entirely within the little northwestern nub, which means the closest it comes to Pittsburgh is going through Erie, a couple of hours north. I-80 comes a lot closer (and is probably a better overall choice for going to Delaware, players), though it doesn't quite actually going into the city.

I was thinking a Link shirt would be amusing, actually.

Yes, I'd figured route #2 was the best option, even if it's slightly longer. Greater ease of finding inconspicuous places to pull over if we need to, but also a presumably more scenic route for was Archer's sake, which is not to be underestimated.

(For the record, the first meme shirt that dug itself into my brain was a paradox-inducing "People die when they are killed". I'm pretty sure the mere existence of that in our backpack causes some sort of Bad End)

> GIVE HER A THREE WOLF MOON SHIRT

>SO YOU DO! Archer looks at it, then says, "Huh, that's kind of pretty. I like this one!"
>It takes a few moments to get dressed. When she comes back, you see it was...mostly a success. Your shirt hangs off her a bit, and is just a tad too short, letting her stomach peek though every so often. Your pants are definitely baggy on her, and don't go all the way down to her ankles; good thing you brought a belt! Luckily, she does seem to be the same shoe size as you, so your socks and back-up pair of gym shoes work nicely for her.
>"Could be worse," she says. "Reminds me of wearing hand me downs from my older sister, really."

>And along the way, let's chat a little about what it was like to live the life behind the legends

>You make your way toward Gary, and from there toward Indiana State Route 30!
>...
>This is gonna take awhile. Between a surprising number of traffic lights in towns you knew about as a child but never really visited and long stretches of nothing but corn, it's going to be a dull trip. The highway, at least, has the decency to be divided and two lanes to a side, so you have some room to maneuver. Not that traffic is very heavy. Still, it almost feels like you can just forget about the events of last night, and what's been going on today...
>Archer, at least, is fairly chatty, curious about the corn in the fields; reminding you that it was never in England until the New World was discovered, commenting on random cars, and sometimes telling bits of her story at your prodding. She doesn't dwell much on her early life, but it seems she was born to farmers, more or less indistinguishable from most of the people at the time. She hints that she had a tendency to run off on her own and get lost in the forest, and that she knew a local druid. She doesn't go much into what precisely convinced her to take up the mantle that she did, aside from the local lord taxing the further and further. What is does dwell on is her lifelong war against the lord, telling tales of ambushes she set, traps she laid, and daring escapes from hunting parties after her. This all comes in pits and pieces, you have to put them together yourself. You may have to press her to get more information when she is less distracted by travel.
>A couple hours and some change have passed since you broke free of the traffic jam on the interstate. You are passing through a little town called Plymouth, and note you are low on gas. This shouldn't be too difficult to remedy here.
