Never argue with idiots; they'll drag you down to their level and then beat you on experience.

For some reason, I thought Rikers was spelled with a "y" instead of an "i", which is why I hedged with my clues.

Reminder:

Simply bolding with <b> </b> tags input orders is just as effective as using the Cassy menu. People have been struggling with lag in some cases, and I don't want any accidental duplications or anything so that I can know when you're doing weird stuff on purpose!

Hey all!

I am, starting now, going to post a blank line when I've SEEN your chat stuff you're hoping for a reply/response to, but it isn't going to generate one. That way you don't have to just wonder. =)

Hey guys, just wanted to apologize for an inconsistent labeling by computer programs or weird schedule burps the last few days. I've been sick as a dog - feverish, unable to eat, and trying to run this during my best possible times. Pretty sure I haven't messed up anything in the workings of the game, but I try to keep a humanity to the humans and a sterile consistency to the programs, and that's deffo not gone as well.

I do appreciate you hanging out with me yesterday when I was miserable. =)

So, I am somehow still sick. This thing is ridiculous.

I am taking today slow, and since I am, I see no reason to be punctilious on anyone else. I'm going to give 1.5 more hours for inputs and then lazily process the whole day throughout this afternoon.

Acox has found a hidden game mechanic: Inspiration

Inspiration is awarded to someone the mod notices taking a clearly group-orientates approach in a clever or well timed way that has a certain x factor. There is some serendipity to generating inspiration, and sometimes the mod just won't notice even if it should happen because he's too distracted. Inspiration benefits will always be for all the players in some way.

So this is really cool guys. Once per game I can ask a question here in the ooc thread and Tok will answer publicly. It can be questions about game setup, mechanics, pretty much anything I get the impression. I'm open to suggestions!

With Trigun being this lock consensus good read for so many people, I find it really bizarre that she's alive. There's a threshold where if she's still alive she should probably be murdalated.

Hey, guys!

You are in sort of an undefined phase here, and I want to clarify that what I say here isn't an in character communication of any kind. That lack of defined cadence is part of what's happening in the game due to the disconnection from the game server and program process, so the RL experience thereof is appropriate.

However, as humans-playing-a-game coordination, the game will move on late this afternoon regardless of what happens or doesn't between now and then.

Speaking of which, I'm lazy-modding today, which is part of why our day is so long. (I knew I'd want to, and Dopp took off for my birthday!) So if it seems like I'm not replying, just imagine me chilling back with my new game and my lady. =)

Hey guys! Some notes about schedule this week. =)

I am heading out on a road trip tomorrow morning. I have to square away my dependents before then, but I am so far on schedule to be able to process whatever you've thrown at me at 7pm tonight as posted.

After that, we're going to have a week long "day" that doesn't process till maybe Sunday or Monday? I'll probably go with Monday evening. In that time, things that come from my end will be really slow. I'm doing one of those stupid style "drive 2 days to be there 2 days" things. (But she's worth it, just like Royal was!)

As in general, things that you get responses to from Tfang will always be ahead of things that come from other names, just because of the login hoops involved.

Update:

So, while I was away (which was lovely), Dad went in for an outpatient procedure and was force admitted instead by the anesthesiologist, who certainly saved his life. He looked bad on the outside, but was a lot worse on the inside, and it meant he was in the hospital to be taken care of and switched to ICU when he went critical.

It's been a really dicey few days, including a long and very difficult drive where I wasn't sure he was still alive for a lot of it, and I'm appropriately beat up.

It now looks like he is going to make it though, probably, which is very good. We're hoping for him to start breathing on his own tomorrow!

So I think the main thing we're looking at his an increased caregiving burden with whatever the complications to his original condition this causes, with some hope bits might actually improve with medication? It's really hard to know.

What I do know, though, is that I can't move into the most Tok-time reliant part of THIS game with my family in this state. I also think it would be hard to manage a transition after a break, just because it is all a little existential. So I'm going to call it. I think "Log" would be worth the read in Cassy at least.

Thanks for coming along on the ride, and I'm sorry that I have to call it before the conclusion, as you guys were doing a great job of coming at it from different approaches!

heart

Loads of appreciation to our patient NPCs as well, who are now more than welcome to post here. =)
