Topic: Zombies in Chicago Q&A
Subject: I guess puns are an aqcuired taste


I thought that one was funny. (also possibly reference to plants vs zombies, I swear I hear 'grains' in that) Granted, I giggle at most of them, and the rest I tilt my head towards because I didn't understand them.

Somehow I get the impression that in this sort of game, accidentally summoning an eldritch horror is kind of unexpected-but-not-out-of-the-question.

I mean, look at Grugg. He looks like he could be summoning something. Or is it him trying to summon food again?

Topic: GOODDAY: Welcome to Pyron
Subject: Roster so far...


I've got basics for Shield Wolf and Chessicfayth's characters... but still would prefer if there was a couple more people involved.

As both of your characters are residents and both are interested in gaming, there's a pretty good likelihood you'll both at least know of each other prior to the start of the game. I'll let you both decide on whether that's the case or not as we get closer to actually starting.

My apoligies for the late update here, it's been midterms week for me.

Topic: Paranoia: Adventures in Clonesitting
Subject: Curiouser and Curiouser, there must be a pattern


The lineup was, well, much longer than Artie had anticipated. He actually didn't expect there to be a lineup. If the whole sequence ran in even a limited parallel, then it'd be so much more efficient than just this mere ludicrous sequential queue that was in place. But, he was not the designer.

At this point, Artie was convinced that the Computer was not even the designer. It was probably modelled after a blueprint that was made by a person. Probably a communist, given that this was clearly sabotage. That was the only explanation for this inefficiency. He knew that the Computer would hate this inefficiency if the Computer was capable of such a thing. Naturally, being the better, the probability that the Computer was capable of such a thing was very slim. Still, it made Artie's blood boil.

Or was that just from the heat of so many clones in the same room at once?

In the end, it was irrelevant. This was inefficient. They were on a mission, and logically, a mission demanded efficiency. The mission was also supposed to be secret. Therefore, the use of the authority of being on a mission would be counterproductive to the end result and fail a prerequisite, thereby failing the mission altogether. There was only one alternative. Apoptosis.

Artie carefully watched, while waiting in line patiently. There was two things he was trying to see. The first thing was if he could get any indication of what happened for each person at the end of the lineup. The second thing was trying to see what it was that the automated lasers above found interesting about various people.

Topic: Star Wars The Imperial March Q&A
Subject: Not really a requirement


If I happen to find a vocabulator some place (maybe mech-anibalize a wayward droid?) then I can install it and then converse in basic. But as far as droid understanding goes, I'm pretty sure it's safe to say basic meanings/emotions can be easily conveyed, if R2 in the movies was any indication. If it comes down to briefings/planning, I'm sure I can manipulate what Fayt's holographic projector's output is to convey things like suggestions.

I don't see any tech-people in the group so don't think the characters would go out of their way to talk to a droid anyhow

That being said, do let me know if I should refrain from or inversely expand more on Fayt's vocalizations. In my experience, when playing a droid, the beeps are half the fun.

Topic: Star Wars: The Imperial March
Subject: *whistle*


Fayt had kept mostly to herself during the flight.

Granted, she was a droid. It was generally expected of her to keep to herself. She didn't have an issue with that. She was okay with many things. Well, as long as no one brought up memory wipes. Then she'd be high tailing it out of there before the next cycle. As it was however, no one did, and she was actually excited. This was a very important mission. And she was a droid, but she still got to go. If Fayt had a specific Maker, she'd thank them from the tips of her semiconductors for being able to experience this.

However, the immediate blaster fire that the group and shuttle was exposed to did dampen her circuits a bit, metaphorically. That would be a problem. If they were organic shooters then they probably wouldn't aim specifically at her if she made a move, and that was comforting. But, on the other hand, if it was a motion sensor controlled turret then it'd still shoot at her if she moved. Although, if that was the case, she could try to hack it and prove her worth. As it was though, she'd just have to scout and keep her dome low and find out.

When she got to the doorway, she quickly snapped a shot of the landscape for her memory banks. As it was, the trenches gave the best cover, and so that would be where she was headed. Unless the closest trench was actually a deep ravine, then that could be troublesome.

These would be a lot of thoughts to go through a person's head, but Fayt was not a person, and there were benefits to having a computerized mind.

Panels on either side of her 'legs' slid open, and from them extended miniature propulsion engines. With a few beeps, easily identifiable as a 'make room!', she hit the ignition and took flight. Keeping low to the ground, she hovered over towards the trench. If she can make the movement, it's unoccupied, and it isn't that deep, she'll drop in and land. If it's a full fledged ravine however, she'll give a sharp whistle to warn about it and back track as far as she can go to try to get cover.

Topic: Star Wars The Imperial March Q&A
Subject: Hmms


I think I like that setup for Fayt. The main thing that bugged me was that I'd be potentially getting 5000 credits for *bonus* subsystems and upgrades and such. I mean, there would doubtlessly be benefit to getting armour plating and a shield generator, but at the same time, it just felt kind of exploitive in a way.

Having just the class change from non-heroic to heroic makes a lot of sense to me though. Essentially makes the droid more on the same level as any of the other characters, without being held back by inconveniently inferior levels that I'm essentially penalized exp for.

Not to mention, 23 HP instead of 7. Means I'm not going to have to be totally scared of stray blaster fire

In short, I like this setup, and I think you pre-emptively posted what I was planning to do myself, Ayrn

Topic: Star Wars The Imperial March Q&A
Subject: Well, not up to me


I don't have that book, and as far as I know, the Empire was never one for ordering custom stock unless it was for high tier commanders, so doesn't make all that much sense for Fayt to have anything but a standard model as provided in the core book. That's my intuition on it anyhow. Saadar has final say.

Given the lack of response from people in general, I'm not too concerned on concepts to be handed in yet. If more (present) interest acrues then I'll poke everyone for it then.

Eol edition. 'cept I'm pretty sure those aren't snakes. Someone took a hammer to all the ladders too. No shortcuts in this thing.

I'm also pretty sure that those ladders were glass just to be easy to break. Oh wait, that answers whose hammer this is... Pi loves breaking glass for her collection.

Worst case scenario, we steal her blueprints and make glass fireball cannons out of these here shards and use that to break out of the establishment that wasn't courteous enough to just ask for a resume. If they had just asked nicely, I'm sure Annie won't be so peeved off

Topic: Paranoia: Adventures in Clonesitting
Subject: Body count: 1, -1 due to sweeper activity


Artie stood firm on top of the hoverbot. He was not moving. Granted, it is difficult to move when one's hand is locked in an iron grip. Ascertaining that momentum has indeed halted, he eased his grip, using his free hand to unlock his white knuckles with come coersion. With that done, he looked around. Body count == two? No, further analysis dictates the count to only be one.

There wasn't much to do at the moment. The group's exact coordinates had to be maintained in order to ensure optimal efficiency for the clone replacement.

However, there was one sure thing that needed to be done. "Temporary objective: reboard Brighte." Artie noted aloud.

With that, he began to scan with his vision for something to help Brighte get back on board (assuming that it isn't an immediately straightforward matter).

Subject: Ooh ee ooh aa aa bing bang wadda wadda bing bang


Artie smiled.

This was his game now. He could already see the space alien invaders piloting asteroids lining up in front of them. He could visualize cannons on either side of their hoverbot. He would do it this time. He would beat that damn high score.

This was all, of course, completely stupid. No, he was not visualizing such things. He didn't even think aliens were real. That was illogical.

Still, he was smiling. Happiness was mandatory after all. Everyone was part of the team, and they were all serving their ultimate protector, benefactor, and guardian, Friend Computer. Or, at least, that's what the surface appearance was. How could one be certain?

With an iron grip on the railing, he stood, unmoving, as the hoverbot continued forward.

"Reminder: expression of gratitude is advisable. Transport: efficient, logical, and was provided for us. Steam: caution, interfacing affinity is top priority. Casualties are inefficient." He looked back momentarily at Ammpe and Brighte, before looking forward again, feet steady on the hoverbot, and his grip firm.

He was probably the least concerned about the hoverbot's safety or lack of it. He looked down at the bot. What a fine craft she was. He would love to take a closer look but he was uncertain on the variable t that measured the time since she was last looked at, and whether that would allow him to schedule maintenance. Or Jackie for that matter. They are both extremely fine models that performed admirably.

Topic: GOODDAY: Welcome to Pyron
Subject: Game of Holo


It'll be shown in the campaign to be less an MMO in the conventional sense and more like cosplay and real life acting. The holograms aren't just for things like a 3d imaging computer screen, but will include virtual equipment, enemies, and other things.

In other words, the holo game that will occur in Pyron is an extension of that world's reality, utilizing the Unh compound in the air in order to create effects ranging between illusions and possibly up to real results...

Reaching the bottom, Aria noted with disdain that with the numbers there were, and the rate at which the man with the katana was going through them, it wouldn't be out of the question that she may have to watch out for tripping on one of the dead bodies. She wasn't altogether sure that she could dance in this confined space. Setting that thought aside, she drew her blades and effectively tried to poke at one of the mites beside her.

"I'd have to agree. Unsavoury things but well, you don't get to pick your audience." Aria noted, still working on climbing the rest of the way down.

When/if she reached the bottom she'd draw both her blades, ready to back up Takashi, but leaving her lights up above for the aid of the ones still climbing.

"I don't see why not. The more we take care of before the charter's completion, the less work we'll have to do later." Aria noted, "I am in as well."

Subject: Operation I hate Ouchies


Aria winced a bit as she let herself down on the ground, careful to keep her leg up and off the ground. She rubbed the back of her head as she looked up at Sylvia, smiling sheepishly, "I'm not exactly sure what I was thinking myself."

Laying a hand on her leg, her left hand tracing a pattern in the air, Aria closed her eyes a moment, "If we, jump into the water would we swim or would we drown? If we, build a set of wings could we fly or just fall down? And if, you keep talking to me, through this darkness, through this night, I'll be alright. I'll be alright."

((CLW self))

Suddenly Aria jerked up, "Gah," She buried her forehead in her palm, "Force of habit... the person I kind of learned from used that lyric all the time when healing. Looks like I still use it by default." She mutters, her tone kind of a strange mixture of embarrassment and exasperation.

She bowed her head and sighed, before sitting up to listen to Achuak.

After a moment though, the others seemed to switch to a dialect she didn't know. So Aria decided to check on the others.

"Mind if I try to help with that?" She asked Junn, indicating his leg.
