Re: temp chat thread

When you first met him he was disguised as an older man. Makeup, acting, and such. He'd been in the public eye long enough that he had to pretend to age. He'd erased almost all public records showing his appearance, but he still needed to maintain a persona for business, and high society. He'd arriv...

Re: temp chat thread

Sorry again. I think I'm going through an extended period of burnout. I just haven't had the focus to write anything. Still dealing with long work shifts, childcare, illnesses, and lack of sleep. I don't want to let you guys down, and there is more story to mine. Some threads, not all of them player...

Book 2 - Chapter 1 - Fires

Condensed Rule recap, game continues in the next post. Experience. Experience translates directly into character points. As this chapter opens all the pc's have 401 character points, with at least 391 of that spent. If we recruit new players they'll go through the same three stages of development as...

Re: temp chat thread

Still here, just swamped. Sorry guys.

I'll just start the new chapter when I can. I'd wanted to get some chapter 0 material up first, but that content takes time/energy I haven't been able to muster.

Re: temp chat thread

On looking back I'm not even sure you ever saw the original Tala, she might have only talked via your com devices. The new Tala, Tala Venus could look different on purpose.

Re: temp chat thread

I figure you guys deserve another "reason for delays" update. So recently wife, baby, and I were recovering from a cold. Then I worked a week of mostly 12-13 hour shifts. Then I worked 2 more long shifts on the weekend (optional for a hundred dollar bonus, boss isn't evil just understaffed). That ro...

Re: Work draft

Tala's trauma? "Yes my sister has a tragic back story, I am aware of it, but I do not have the memories of experience. Primarily health problems before she met a Provider, it isn't my place to elaborate further.

Re: Work draft

For the people at home, what is a V.I? A virtual intellect, my mind resides in the base computer systems, and I interact with the biological staff via consoles and holographic fields. So you're what we would call Artificial Intelligence? No x, my mind is modelled on a real brain, but confined in a m...

Re: Work draft

Tala Cage who you may have known as pilot for the Provider mission has the authority to speak for the Cage family. However while it is true that I am a part of her, in a sense a sister, or daughter, I do not represent Cage Industries, or Tala Cage herself. At this time I am an autonomous entity empl...

The distinction is important. I possess some of Cage's memories, however I am not a flesh and blood being, rather a V.I.

Re: Work draft

Cage industries? I cover it better in my interview y, but to put it simply they're the providers sponsors, providing the providers with most of the extremely advanced technology. And you were saying? Their space travel lacks the challenge and romance of our manned spaceflight. Honestly it was more l...

Re: temp chat thread

Can't sit down for full posts at work, too choppy. But I think I can squeeze in some draft text and tidy later. Making a new thread for that, don't expect it to make sense.

Re: temp chat thread

Thanks guys. I've posted a bit more in chapter 0. In visiting the old site to take notes I've found it's changed in annoying ways. The thread pages flow into each other, which for me isn't the improvement they probably think it is. There was a pop up ad when I first entered the site. I'm not sure ho...
