Some conversations that will get formalized later.
[Roack] 8:23 pm: I like the people already
[Pariah] 8:23 pm: I think I got some of the info on the ice and stuff wrong...
[Pariah] 8:23 pm: dam
[Roack] 8:23 pm: How'd they get there? abandoned human colony?
[Roack] 8:24 pm: oh well, it's fiction, you can do whatever you want to Europa (and yes, I know it's an actual moon, but
you can still change it to suit your needs)
[Pariah] 8:24 pm: That's what I'm thinking
[Pariah] 8:24 pm: war happens, and eventually the terrans forgot about the coonies
[Roack] 8:25 pm: I like it
[Pariah] 8:25 pm: colonies^
[Roack] 8:25 pm: I look forward to more
[Pariah] 8:25 pm: yeah, but I'm trying to keep it quasi-realistic
[Roack] 8:26 pm: well chagning a few statistics about the ice is still realistic
[Pariah] 8:26 pm: one thing I read said 100 mi of ice, andother that I just read said 25 mi of ice is theorized
[Roack] 8:27 pm: besides, it could have changed over time
[Pariah] 8:27 pm: yeah, but one of them makes it ALOT easier on the colonists
[Roack] 8:27 pm: And I don't believe we know much about any of Jupiter's moons
[Pariah] 8:27 pm: ...
[Pariah] 8:27 pm: No we don't
[Pariah] 8:27 pm: It's just what astronamers are theorizing
[Roack] 8:27 pm: so you can fill in all you want
[Pariah] 8:28 pm: I know
[Pariah] 8:28 pm: just trying to be OCD
[Roack] 8:29 pm: heh
[Pariah] 8:31 pm: Okay, it's in polar lock with Jupiter.
[Pariah] 8:31 pm: tidal, not polar
[Pariah] 8:31 pm: means that it always shows it's good face to it's planet
[Roack] 8:33 pm: Like Luna to Earth
[Pariah] 8:33 pm: yup
[Pariah] 8:33 pm: they have silicon under the ocean, so instead of carbon based native life they have Si
[Pariah] 8:34 pm: and under that they have a nickel/iron core
[Roack] 8:35 pm: Awesomesauce
[Pariah] 8:35 pm: WOOWHOOO!!!!!
[Pariah] 8:35 pm: It has, tenous amounts, O2 in the atmosphere
[Pariah] 8:35 pm: or so says hubble
[Roack] 8:36 pm: So it might be able to support human life if we introduce carbon/Nitrogen?
[Pariah] 8:36 pm: enough oxy to fill a dozen superdomes
[Pariah] 8:36 pm: no, not enought gravity to hold the gases
[Pariah] 8:38 pm: the tribals still need their rebreathers.
[Roack] 8:38 pm: Ahh
[Roack] 8:39 pm: But if you had some way to induce gravity... maybe Terraforming was in progress when it was
[Pariah] 8:40 pm: If you had some way to induce enough gravity, and went through the massive amounts of energy that
would be required to make o2 and nitro frm the water...
[Pariah] 8:40 pm: but, there might be abandoned terraforming stations in the middle of nowhere
[Pariah] 8:41 pm: that stopped when the required shipments stopped coming from earth
[Pariah] 8:41 pm: possible homes of the triblas?
break involving me naming crossbows, swords as outside weapons and swords/shotguns as inside weapons for the tunnels
[CaptainPenguin] 8:54 pm: Europa?
[The Citadel]: Roack has left at 8:54 pm
[CaptainPenguin] 8:54 pm: Go on?
[Pariah] 8:54 pm: like the icy moon of Jupiter
[CaptainPenguin] 8:54 pm: Ah, I see.
[The Citadel]: Roack has entered at 8:54 pm
[CaptainPenguin] 8:54 pm: And what is your idea?
[Roack] 8:54 pm: Dangit, timed out
[CaptainPenguin] 8:54 pm: Welcome back, Ro.
[Roack] 8:55 pm: Hey Captain
[Pariah] 8:55 pm: http://www.strolen.com/guild/index.php/topic,3048.msg40615.html#new
CaptainPenguin is listening to "Watch Out," by Atmosphere
[CaptainPenguin] 8:55 pm: You should both go out and go to your local record store, and go to the hip-hop section and get
CDs by MF Doom and Atmosphere.
[CaptainPenguin] 8:55 pm: NOW
[Pariah] 8:56 pm: Sure boss, whad eva' you say
[CaptainPenguin] 8:56 pm: DO IT
[Roack] 8:56 pm: I'm broke as hell!
[CaptainPenguin] 8:57 pm: Steal 'em, then
[Roack] 8:57 pm: butm when I have money, sure
[CaptainPenguin] 8:57 pm: Or even better get, DangerDoom, collaboration between MF Doom and Danger Mouse
[The Citadel]: Murometz has entered at 8:57 pm
[CaptainPenguin] 8:57 pm: Ooh, you name-dropped the Nekron, Par.
[CaptainPenguin] 8:57 pm: Hey, Mur
[Pariah] 8:58 pm: Hey Mur
[Roack] 8:58 pm: Hello Muro
[Pariah] 8:58 pm: well, these guys are human, basically, and they do wee sun ocassionally
[CaptainPenguin] 8:58 pm: How?
[CaptainPenguin] 8:58 pm: Europa is frozen.
[CaptainPenguin] 8:58 pm: And has no atmosphere.
[Murometz] 8:58 pm: sup guys
[CaptainPenguin] 8:58 pm: I don't understand how the Ferals survive on the surface
[Pariah] 8:58 pm: colonists, did I not put that down?
[Pariah] 8:59 pm: living in tunnels
[CaptainPenguin] 8:59 pm: Yeah, got that part
[CaptainPenguin] 8:59 pm: But typically, tunnels don't have suns in them
[Pariah] 8:59 pm: no, but these guys have eyes, and the tunnels have lights
[Roack] 8:59 pm: Not much, you Mur?
[Roack] 9:00 pm: what about vitamin D, though?
[Pariah] 9:00 pm: eyes=pointless...
[CaptainPenguin] 9:00 pm: Okay, but how about the Ferals. I said nothing about eyes.
[Pariah] 9:01 pm: I was thinking that if they had eyes they'd need light
[Murometz] 9:01 pm: just finished reading pretty cool!!! now I need to sit back and catch up on chat
[Roack] 9:01 pm: But like I said, what about Vitamin D? How do they get it?
[Pariah] 9:02 pm: the Ferals are exiles, they are kicked outta the city and given a rebreather type thing, a stove, and some
[Pariah] 9:02 pm: you can get vit d through your food I'm pretty sure
[CaptainPenguin] 9:02 pm: Yeah, you can
[Roack] 9:03 pm: Yes, but generally you need another source
[CaptainPenguin] 9:03 pm: Mmmmmdear
[CaptainPenguin] 9:03 pm: Sorry, kids, but I have to go for now
[Roack] 9:03 pm: Do the have that weird lighting that's supposed to mimic the sun?
[Roack] 9:03 pm: Dangit, See you CP
[CaptainPenguin] 9:03 pm: Sorry
[Murometz] 9:03 pm: not sure if I missed something, but how do these Ferals survive?
[CaptainPenguin] 9:03 pm: Bye
[Murometz] 9:03 pm: see ya Cap
[Pariah] 9:03 pm: I'm sure at some point NASA, or whoever started the colonization saw to the need of vitimins and gen
engineered algae and crap with extra vits
[CaptainPenguin] 9:04 pm: That's exactly what I'm asking about the Ferals... How do they survive on the surface, when
Europa has no atmosphere and is frozen to a very deep depth?
[Roack] 9:04 pm: Well that works
[CaptainPenguin] 9:04 pm: Anyway, bye
[The Citadel]: CaptainPenguin has left at 9:04 pm
[Murometz] 9:04 pm: its cold P!!!
[Pariah] 9:04 pm: electroalysis
[Murometz] 9:04 pm: how do they live?
[Murometz] 9:04 pm: oh
[Pariah] 9:04 pm: split the h2o
[Pariah] 9:05 pm: leach electricity off of the settled power grids
[Murometz] 9:05 pm: sounds good...but hmmmm. ITS COLD!!
[Murometz] 9:05 pm: oh ok getting better
[Pariah] 9:06 pm: 2 o2 + h2 + H2O and heat
[Murometz] 9:06 pm: ahhh chemistry
[Pariah] 9:06 pm: if you're gonna be very primitive and get heat like that
[Murometz] 9:06 pm: I'm back in class
[Pariah] 9:06 pm: otherwise, you ever figure out how an elctric stove heats up?
[Pariah] 9:07 pm: resistance heaters (space heaters)
[Pariah] 9:07 pm: you also have the classic, "let's huddle around each other and hope we live"
