:( I like scarves okay.
"That's not interactive, there's no back-and-forth with the other player and how much fun is it to watch someone incredibly good at moving their eyes? And then whichever Seeker gets lucky swoops in and grabs the Snitch and makes everyone else's work moot. It's like someone took a real game and grafted on this pointless extra position just so that you could be the Most Important Player without needing to really get involved or learn the rest of it. Who was the first Seeker, the King's idiot son who wanted to play Quidditch but couldn't understand the rules?" Actually, now that Harry thought about it, that seemed like a surprisingly good hypothesis. Put him on a broomstick and tell him to catch the shiny thing...

It's so crap the GM bothered to put it in red text in the loot table and point out that it's crap not once, but twice.

Surely it is the most terrible scarf in existence. It's the kind of scarf Boxbot would wear.

IN OTHER NEWS: BW will be away from civilization from tomorrow (Wednesday) through Sunday, so don't expect any Max posts between those days.

No, not us. But, you know, no matter how much like Robox we aspire to be, we can still have accessories that suck.

Oh yeah, and I'm back.

I've warned some people over IM already:

It may seem awkward but the POkemon mission will be concluded in the next 24 hours, and returned to later. If you're having fun, I appologize, but I need to get into the next mission, as it's kind of time sensitive with the real world.

The next mission will be Winterveil.

At this point, due to...God I don't even know why this mission's taken literally two months longer than it was supposed to. Anyway.

This mission will be finished one way or another by Friday. If we don't get to the end, I'll do a quick writeup and people can get with each other to find out what was given to/from characters.

Guys, I know somethings have come up for people, but I'm getting...A whole lot of nothing here. Do people even want to continue this game?

Double post!

Mission is over, sorry guys but I need to get this over with. Stuff was decided by vote last night and it was pretty much unanimous so I stopped asking.

So don't ask why I didn't ask you.

If you have questions about the mission or the brooming, feel free to hit me up.

The next mission will be Stretching the Truth because THE DIE SAID SO. It will be starting tonight at 5 PM my time.

ALso if you want to know your presents let me know and I will let you know what the NPCs got them.

Here are Sam's presents for people!


Sylvie: A DVD set of not-Jacques-Cousteau's show about his explorations of the ocean floor.
Enzo: A new game that would especially be fun for him to hop into. Some really fancy sandboxy game.
Alexis: Art supplies, a bunch of different paints, not just different colors but different kinds too.
Lauren: The newest DVD set of Pretty Princess (I think that was it), the one that comes with a replica of some-appropriate-item-to-the-series. (Some kind of necklace probably) And a case of fancy ferret treats for Leafshade.
Janet: Book 1 of Silver Sword, fantasy series that Sam heard was pretty good. (Assuming she doesn't already have it, which he'd have checked first)
Casey: RC Helicopter
Max: Fancy leather driving gloves. And a fruitcake. A good one.
Emily: Fancy pilot sunglasses
Kid: A big, high quality movie poster of Angel's Fist
Juliet: Stuffed animal, an arctic fox
Byrd: Scarf with dogs on it

HOLY SHIT SOMETHING TO SPEND MONEY ON:

Your first purchase thing! With light weapons and 100 credits, you can take your gear to Casey and have her put it directly into your body.

Built in weapons cannot be disarmed, but still broken. Mechanically, right now, melee weapons are actually in your body, guns are stored in compartments in your legs/arms.

Further on, you'll actually get full blown arm cannons and plasma guns and shit, AREN'T YOU LUCKY.

HEY CHECK THIS OUT, I actually put text to notepad and fucking put down some history. You can expect this to be the first of many such articles that I will also be putting up on the wiki.

And now, a brief history of Krynian robotics, along with some backstory for Anka Retonik and Annie Armstrong.

With hands of iron, there's not a task they couldn't do.

On Krynus, robotics is not a new science. The first robots were made by International Mechanics, based out of Chinzei. They were built for assisting in the production of cars and other factory goods, but other uses were soon found, including general construction and demolition. From that point on, they became International Robots and Mechanics (IRM)

In spring of 3720, IMR's CEO Shinjiro Retonik fell ill. No longer able to run the company, control fell into the hands of his daughter, Anka. Being a young woman, Anka had very little experience or interest in running the company, and sold it for a record breaking sum of 750 million credits, and Anka joined the Deck Foundation as the Ace of Hearts, handling the companies internal affairs.

Nine years after working with one another, there was an affair- One that produced a daughter. Hayward couldn't afford news spreading of an illegitimate child, and while Anka certainly didn't want to give up the child, she knew it had to be done. She gave the child up for adoption in the House of Love in Deck City, and later arranged for the Armstrong family to adopt the child, Annie.

Annie was moved back to Chinzei and raised as the Armstrong's biological daughter. She had an early interest in robotics, like her older brother Jack and most of the population in Chinzei. Like them, too, she had an affinity to it, making working machines by the time she was eight, and complex machines by 10. She sent blueprints of her work to the newly formed D-52. Four years later, the Great War broke out due to Imperial aggression, and while Chinzei wasn't in any way involved, Annie and Anka were.

With the war in full swing, D-52 became something of a mercenary force, with each of the Aces commanding small forces. Anka's division, Hearts, was used as negotiators and peace brokers, very rarely engaging in combat. Anka herself was always deployed by herself, and rumors in D-52 claim that she single handedly forced cease-fires in any zone she entered.

As for Annie, her designs were taken and seriously reviewed by D-52's Robotics division. Scaling her designs up and making improvements and modifications, the first War Walkers were rolled off the assembly line, and sold to both the Alliance and Empire, changing the face of war on Krynus forever.

The war ended in a total ceasefire, but not an end of hostilities. Five years later, Annie was approached by a representative of D-52, and officially hired on to be an engineer in their robotics division, while working on her PHD in robotics.

Most recently, she's perfected nanotechnology, which has allowed greater advances in technology, including the Bluesky project.

TL;DR!

Nah, I'm just at work and don't have time for it.

I thought I might take to editing the little battle map for the current conflict with Ettezan when I get home. It'd be super-easy, I'd just need a place to upload it.

mysidia.org/ChildsPlay/ seems like a logical place. :ghost:

I can send you the PDN file for it if you want, Brian; the PNG's flattened, so it'd probably be a lot harder to work with. I've still got all the PC symbols from the highway battle too, so I can send you a file with those too.

I'd certainly appreciate it, though, yeah. And I'm sure Shini would too. :D

Mission 12 is wrapping up, and Mission 13 is where stuff's gonna get crazy. Please don't hesitate if you have any questions about anything at all in the plot.

Further, NEXT will resume when Mission 13 starts.

This mission is winding down, now that the shit is hitting the fan. And that means two things!

A: Optional boss coming up! someone take a vote of who wants the opportunity for PHAT LEWT, including your first energy weapon.
B: Mission votes!

The next missions available are:

Press Day- It's time to finally meet your adoring public. (1 vote- Kelne)

MechWarrior- Hands on mech training! (2 votes- Neb and BW)

Beast Within (Or: Mocking Byrd)- Juliet seems to finally have a way to control Byrd. But is that necessarily a good thing? (2 votes- Bes and Idran)

That's very strange. It works just fine in Chrome, but not in Firefox or IE. Anyway, you can still right-click, copy link, and paste the address in a new window/tab. I'm too lazy and it's too in the middle of a work day for me to mess with re-hosting now.
