No – because I have no idea if he would, be in touch with her, as that is so far in his future (the future i don’t want to know anything about and don’t want to have decided for me).
But as long as we can all have the understanding that just because Alyce in her mind assumes he is dead, that doesn’t mean that he is.
Except that the Old One’s words seem to confirm that he is.
Maybe if he was just silent on the topic, instead of going on at length about how necessary Al’s death was.
I think it’s fun that you guys are playing your characters way out into the future, but I don’t think it’s any secret how attached I am to Al, and I really would prefer people not write his distant future.
As I said, as long as his death is strictly Alyce’s assumption, I suppose that’s fine. Though that would mean committing to a decision now whether or not he would ever get in touch with her after (whatever happened).
Writing other people’s futures is tricky business, especially when they said they don’t want to play in the game because that’s exactly something they are not ready to do.
I do hope you can understand that.May 18, 2019 at 3:41 pm #18903
Al, you are absolutely correct and I am deeply sorry that I overstepped my bounds in this matter. I have edited the post to remove any indication or hint at Al’s future. I recognize that I was wrong and will leave that up to you. Thank you for being kind and patient in explaining your position and I hope that you can forgive my mistake.May 18, 2019 at 3:58 pm #18906
Dude, thanks, but no apologies from you! It was a really cool post.
And the new one is still just as cool – glad you basically kept it.
And I appreciate your respecting that I just don’t want to know Al’s future at this time.
Thanks!!!!!!!!!May 18, 2019 at 4:30 pm #18911
I will stress again that this is only one possible timeline, maybe not even the most probable!
@mercy: much as I don’t want to be a pain given you’ve already edited your IC once and it’s my own fault for not being clearer… but this is an illegal mission in an aliens style drop ship rather than a commercial flight with stewards!? Perhaps you could tweak it to a junior lieutenant asking after you or something like that…? Sorry 😏May 18, 2019 at 4:43 pm #18915
I have now edited my post to remove the comforts of being in a first class seat and am now sitting on an uncomfortable web seat on some sort of stealth military shuttle, or something quite like it that the fragging Choir have managed to suborn to their use.May 18, 2019 at 4:49 pm #18917
Thanks Mercy, sorry to be a pain in the arse!! Will reread the post now 😁May 18, 2019 at 4:53 pm #18918
How are the choir?May 19, 2019 at 2:03 pm #18947
So we do not know who else is on the shuttle with Alyce yet. I am not sure that I can post again without some knowledge of what is waiting for us at the point of landing or who else is with us.May 19, 2019 at 5:35 pm #18949
I’ll get some IC up for you all tomorrow!May 19, 2019 at 5:55 pm #18950
Want to get an ic post up just waiting on a piece of informationMay 19, 2019 at 7:09 pm #18951
If it’s easier to ‘talk’ outside of PMs you’re welcome to send questions to my email [email protected]May 20, 2019 at 7:35 am #18960
Right, got a story line that hold more than it leaks. Gonna try writing up on the way homeMay 20, 2019 at 7:59 am #18962
Cool. I’ve been deliberately vague about who is on the drop ship with Alyce, and why they might be there, so that there’s scope for PCs and NPCs. As we get further in I can flesh that out as needed.May 20, 2019 at 9:00 am #18966
Are we going in loaded for Bear? A la aliens / edge of tomorrow?May 20, 2019 at 9:07 am #18968
Oh hell yes!!!!May 20, 2019 at 11:14 am #18973
Say, is there a chance for some ‘ware upgrades? I am thinking perhaps gamma quality?May 20, 2019 at 11:51 am #18978
Only if I get a rail gun and a lazer pistol 🤣please?May 20, 2019 at 12:40 pm #18980
SR tech levels only please… development has really gone to the dogs with the loss of Earth! 😀May 20, 2019 at 1:01 pm #18982
Am I right in thinking that earth has a bloody awful background count?May 20, 2019 at 2:26 pm #18983
It does and it doesn’t, mana levels are higher so easier to draw mana, that effectively cancels out bc (conveniently)… but Lily’s warning to Isaint was true, drawing on mana will attract the horrors!
