OOC, Starters and Questions / Re: The Silk Road OOC Chat
« Last post by EchoMirage on Yesterday at 02:06:59 AM »
I think the issue is complicated somewhat by how 'soon' in the campaign this narrative arc occurs.
We have run 0-0.5 adventures with our characters in the cosmic era setting. Thus, we as players don't have many connections with the world, even though the characters would be connected to their associates, fixers, military comrades, friends, enemies, contacts...
Many outside forces act upon them now, and the scope of the adventure is very wide; due to the characters' isolation, they naturally slip into the role of victims of the story, and not so much active agents.

I'd like the characters to take on more agency, to drive more of the story, but don't see a good way how. Any ideas?

Sorry for the delay. Family issues. I like where it is going now, but I'll put some more thought into it.

Back from vacation, and I want to get back into things, so before launching headlong back into it, what would you fine fellows like to see in the upcoming section?

As a re-enactor, I fully understand. Costumes are a) important b) stressful. We're patient adults, too :) Enjoy!

Val: I dont know who you are wanting Jerome to contact, message me and lets get it sorted out.

Echo: I want to throw Blue something fun, with the letters, but I need some time to work it out.

I am starting vacation tomorrow, and I've been feverishly working on getting the house ready for the petsitter, and our costume project, yes, there is a costume contest on my vacation and I've made a near full sized horse for it. There will be pics on FB later. I want to throw some stuff out for the game, but I am going to say its pretty likely this will be a 5 day pause on my end, and I give my apologies on that.

This costume has been stressful

Behind the usual sequence of proxies, Blue fooled around on MercNet a bit, to see who their new hires were.
Then, Blue gave a tentative ping to some of the fixers and info dealers to see what was going on in several corners of the world, including the SAUR.
Curious about the symbols, the neo-ethnic tried to recall where they may have been seen, and poked around on dark-web conspirator forums half for the laughs, and half for the grains of truth hidden in the chaos. Someone had to know something.
Finally, cursing the need to hide, Blue dressed up in a tent-like robe to hide as many distinctive traits as possible. The horns were hidden under a sizeable turban.

Not likely and AI then, thought Jerome.  Something weirder than that.   He had his suspicions.

He brought his connections back online, checking to see if any of the agents he had started had found anything for him.

Meanwhile, he found the nearest arms bazaar and began gathering a little more gear, including another battered old Skelebot, ammunition, and a number of mid-grade drones.

As he made his way back to the tank, he received a notification. He did not recognize the sender...

Arjan took the notion of finding some backup agreeable and left the turbo tank in their possession and went to the Carlsbad tavern. She knew a few guys she could trust there, and if nothing else, things were getting dicey and she didn't want to be outnumbered by these contractors she was working with, especially the metal man with the alien voice in his head. This was the biggest reason she had zero cranial implants, this wasnt the first time she had seen a cyborg end up getting proxied by... something. Nothing good ever came of it. Inside the tavern she managed to find a few Jo-Boys she trusted.

Matos seemed distracted, and trying to get the proxy agent to talk to them was fruitless. His wrist computer however still seemed to be linked to whatever the agent was. The screen was a pleasant rose gold color, and alien symbols flickered across the screen. This wasn't machine language, Jerome could make out some machine language, enough to tell if an AISC was lying, or being glib, so long as he could see the code, but this... this was just godd**n strange.

Blue could see that there was a rhyme and reason behind the flickering symbols and patterns, and there was something unsettling about it.
