Topic: Paranoia: Adventures in Clonesitting Q&A
Subject: what is this???


Shockingly, I have posted. I have no idea if any of you are interested in continuing this game, but I'd like to give it a try.

Sorry for all of my suckiness.

Topic: Paranoia: Adventures in Clonesitting
Subject: BING! An update!


Boarding the Alpha-19.87b Friendliness Hoverbot proves to be a minor adventure in and of itself. Not only have the seats been removed, but of course, the seatbelts are also gone. After all, seatbelts with no seats would be inefficient, correct?

The six clones, plus one jackobot, do their best to find spots with something to hold on to. Poor Steam discovers that the opportunity to drive this thing will be particularly challenging - the controls consist of various levers, knobs, and buttons (all unmarked), as well as three pedals. Operating pedals without a seat will be an interesting proposal.

"BING!" the hoverbot intones in a sweet, helpful voice. "Ready to commence hover mode!"

Unfortunately, none of the controls seem to do anything at all.

"BEE-DEE-BEE-DEE-BEEP, superior human," Jackie suggests. "Perhaps you should ask the hoverbot for assistance instead of squandering valuable mission time? I am certain that Friend Computer would not approve of the waste of any resource."

Cheeks burning, Steam follows the suggestion.

"BING!" the hoverbot answers. "Engine startup is a voice command. Would you like to commence startup?"

At the nominal pilot's affirmative response, the four fans blades begin spinning with a horrible noise (though one starts much later than the other three, causing one corner of the hoverbot to droop alarmingly while the other three rise).

Steam grabs the levers, pulls slightly... nothing happens. A harder pull results in an abrupt lurch to the left, which in turn results in a wince-inducing scrape of metal against the parking garage wall.

"BING!" the hoverbot speaks. "For maximum saftey and ride enjoyment, please ensure adequate clearance before initiating turns."

Once the hoverbot is pointed in the apparently correct direction, Steam coerces it to move forward - again with a lurch that threatens to drop at least two clones over the side of the vehicle. Once moving, however, the coveyance *does* have an enjoyable, smooth ride.

"BING!" the hoverbot cheerfully intones. "Next stop, the PLC!"

Zombies are great.

If any of my players are interested, I'll pick Paranoia back up, and also honestly, really get Zombies in Chicago going again.

I had such great plans to become an active member of the Inn. I had code in place that I was wanting to implement to improve the site.

But I just can't seem to get active. I drop in every day, vote for the Inn, see what's new (not much)...

Somebody kick me!

Yeah, we have often talked about having an RDIcon "someday". Would be great.

Hey Grugg? I'll post some of the artwork. Might evenpost a post.

Topic: Meeting an RDI icon
Subject: Meeting an RDI icon


At the end of July, I went on vacation. It was much needed, but my return found me buried in work; sorry that I have been so absent.

At any rate, the trip was to Ohio - which put me in the stomping ground of a Red Dragon Inn icon. I was able to finally meet our own Eol Fefalas face to face.

It was an awesome moment for me, and marks only the third time that I've been able to meet an RDI member face to face. I have been meaning to post about this... but, well, see my earlier comments about being absent.


I brought some of my homebrewed beer to our meeting, and Eol brought gifts (which were unexpected and made me feel stupidly flattered).

I was presented with three things:

1. A personalized towel of facelick defense. Oh, yes.

2. A lightsaber hilt that Eol personally crafted. My boys are all jealous of this.

3. Eol's original artwork that he created for both Star Wars: Tides of Fate and Zombies in Chicago. We're talking about a dozen or so pictures, and who knows how many hours.


The above was all too much, and I felt guilty accepting such lavish gifts, but he wouldn't hear of those feelings from me.

We got to chat for far too short of a time, swap handshakes and hugs. It was truly an honor to get to meet one of the real creative forces behind the Inn.

I was hoping Jozan would post, since he made a post to the Q&A. Either way, I will bump the game within the next day or two.

However this turns out, Ody, I wanted you to know that this was an AWESOME decision... fun to read, and a nice way to handle the situation. If you die, you take the bad guy with you, yes?

Welcome back, Jozan! Go post.

A jackobot is a jack of all trades type robot. It can be programmed to do almost anything. These are usually pretty humanoid in appearance.

Communication issues, period. I thought, for some reason, that you had the next script already... since it was attached to the email with the big file you hadn't received, I don't know how I thought you had it.

After the Great Crash, I set up my own backup system. Unortunately, I don't grab the backups every day - this is about to change.

Topic: Website Crash!!!
Subject: Website Crash!!!


This afternoon, our web server had a critical hardware failure. The webhost was able to get us back up in a matter of a couple of hours, but they had to restore from the weekly backup, which was on the 24th.

My own most recent copy of the site was on the 23rd.

This means that we have lost about three full days worth of data. The host says that they will try to retrieve data from the old server, but that may not be possible if there is a physical issue with, say, the hard drive(s).

I apologize for the issue, folks. Losing posts SUCKS.
