Another placeholder for the ‘future’ game … a possible game timeline has been added to the SR timeline excel file if anyone wants to have a nosy 🙂
Any suggestions for other events always welcome!

Have you ever seen the old role play game “high colonies” I have a scan of the back ground part on my drive if you want to have sneeky peeky. It very much earth is toast but the solar system remains.

@adamu: I know you don’t want to play an active part in the IC as a PC but as before the offer is there to make cameo appearances as any NPC or even as a digital construct designed around Al to offer sage words of advice at inappropriate moments!
@beta, @gilga, @tecumseh, @electric_muppet, @obidancer: You are all more than welcome to pitch in on this thread if you think it might be interesting! I can’t remember if you’ve all seen the original sales pitch so let me know one way or the other and we can discuss options! Would be good to get at least one more PC to help momentum…
Basic premise, this is set in a possible future timeline (see the timeline on OP) where things have not gone to plan. It will borrow from Eclipse Phase and other similar RP types but be rooted in SR and our ongoing metagame…
Planning to try an initial foray and see how it goes and then plan future runs moving away from Earth…

I’ll have to think about recorded messages from Al.
Tempting, but still so many ramifications continuity-wise….
BUT – more than happy and delighted to help out by voicing any NPCs you need – I’ll keep up with this thread, and you PM me about anyone you want me to be and the parameters.
MemberMay 17, 2019 at 12:02 pm
I was thinking more of an AI programmed with Al’s personality rather than pre-recorded messages, then there’s no continuity, its a voice in the ‘present’ that is based on what Al might have said in that situation

So, Alyce is coming to Earth on a space ship and it is about 250 years in the future from the SoP threads. Does she still have her tech stuff? Are her homes in Cornwall and London still standing and habitable? I think I need a bit more background on what is happening to Earth and to Alyce, please.

https://drive.google.com/file/d/0B3Yw4d165IBNbENuY0pTRm41YUk/view is a link to the timeline, if you pick the ‘Future Timeline’ tab at the bottom it will give you a rough idea of what has been happening…it’s obviously not complete, as ever I want player input in the way things go 🙂
Safe to say though that the world has gone to rat shit… I doubt much of London is standing, there’s a chance that a more remote farmhouse might have made it… liveable is open to debate!
Yes, you have tech, probably some future tech too although we’ll worry about that later if it comes up…
Happy to answer more questions but doubt I’ll be ICing much now until Monday, sorry 😛

So would my character be a download of a current character or a clone or a decendent?
MemberMay 17, 2019 at 1:45 pm
Happy to work with any idea that fits and you think would be fun … all those ideas sound possible!
MemberMay 17, 2019 at 2:38 pm
Now do I do a fearal from London ruins or a adept spacer?
MemberMay 17, 2019 at 3:10 pm
What’s the build level?
MemberMay 17, 2019 at 3:24 pm
Same as before, sum14 prime, only 2x A… body swapping ‘immortals’ need to be mundanes…
MemberMay 18, 2019 at 12:38 pm
Thanks for the invite It sounds very cool, and Forty could still be alive or Addie could be a body swapper … But unfortunately I’m struggling to keep up with the three games I’m in already :-/. Too many cool games, only so much time and creativity.
MemberMay 18, 2019 at 1:28 pm
Immortal characters are a bit too much for me.
MemberMay 18, 2019 at 2:11 pm
Dude, really enjoyed your most recent post on this thread.
But, well, I’ve been pretty clear that the main reason I can’t play in this game is that I am far from ready to know how Al’s life ends. It’s a story I may one day want to write, but for now he’s very much alive to me, and I do not want to know his future.
I hope you can understand that.
MemberMay 18, 2019 at 2:25 pm
I intentionally left the manner of Al’s demise completely vague, so it is indeed possible that Al was just MIA after that mission. After all, it has happened in the past. I totally would believe that The Old One is keeping Al’s true fate a secret from Alyce in some misguided notion that it is for her own good that she not know.
If you want to say that he has been in touch with her, I am more than willing to rewrite the post to indicate that.
