alright so I'll run like that then, with "ooc" comments within the tags. Everthing else will then default to the black text for in character actions:

Prism has the surprising realisation that despite recent events and team-mate sentiment, nobody has yet suggested he remove his stomach module yet. He goes to the stores and makes himself a Collins.

Awesome. I'ma copy these over to the IC thread.

I had not picked up that was a thing yet. That explains why this seemed to be taking so long to get off the ground...

Damn you whipper snappers with your fancy gizmos.

Hey all. Oscar had the cool idea of signatures that link to your character sheet, so I stole it and made these for you guyes. (Oscar figured out the coding, though.)

If you quote this post and then copy your relevant entry you can have a linky sig.


Flash



Deante



Prism



Eshu



Ajax

Hey ChilliPhilli, can I assume you're talking about the Cognite Scion, Halley here:

Quote:
He looks at the still image of Jenna, and subconsciously smooths his hair back.

Jenna was the reporter, but I can totally give you information about her if Flash wants it.

And, Pronato, I'm guessing that the new appearance is okay with you, as both of those rolls of yours seemed to be failures?

Oops, serves me right for not reading properly. I blame my eyesight. . .
Can I just edit that in the IC thread?

Yeah the both those rolls were bad failures, so I've had Prism making (what i assume) is a really bad judgement call wrt seeming less threatening to minure

do you want me to roll deception or disguise or something to how well Prism changes his appearance to match the worst possible archetype?

Nah. Happy for it to just be failure (not a crit after all, although one of those looked stylish). Besides, I think a robotic Brian Blessed would be scary enough.

Just in meta terms, is everyone okay with the current direction?

Yeah, I'm liking how things are shaping up. IC, Eshu really does NOT want to go to Mars to rescue/abduct a Hypercorp brat and risk getting picked up by a DA hit team, but OOC I think it would be a lot of fun.

Hey guys. I'll be transiting until Thursday, but feel free to react to Flash's shenanigans in the mean time.

Prism would break Flash down, publically villify him for his rash actions, and burn everything Flash owned (whilst secretly keeping backup copies of anything he can to work on later).

Well let's see how it plays out before you start laying down your Machiavellian schemes. . . (Also, break down Flash physically, or in Prism's stomach? )

Hope you guys like the Flash mega-post. I spent way too long thinking about how to word that, so I hope it came out right.
Eagerly awaiting reactions from the gang

I'm genuinely confused about Flashes actions. Phill are you saying he's on mars now? how did he get there? Surely taking a ship would take weeks/months... did he farcast and get resleeved into an identical sleeve on mars? or is he still physically on the hab with the rest of us?

Sorry about the confusion. SOMEBODY (coughGMcough) is not doing a good job of describing things.

Currently, both. The Flash that walked out on you guys is currently slumped in a corner of his cabin, seemingly catatonic, while the personality seems to be inhabiting the exact same body on Mars.

If it helps to clarify anything, the Flash XP feed is in no way a true recording of events (hence the artist's renderings of the events that are incredibly unlikely to have happened). I'd hoped they would act to serve as showing what Flash had perceived to happen without him having to go through an extensive monologue in character.

As previously established, Flash doesn't really stop to question the improbability of how he might be able to do certain actions (such as sneak past the watchful eye of Ajax without tripping any security measures, or pilot a ship when he has no piloting skills to speak of). Additionally, he seems to be under the impression that substantially more time has passed than the couple of minutes that the discussion has taken.

Hopefully that clears some issues up?

Thanks, Phil.

In all honesty, guys, I am slowly dragging you to Mars (feel free to make me work for it) while I reacquaint myself with the proper EP rules, so kind of doing a soft takeoff into actual play. (This Mars/Cognite thing can be as short or as long as it needs to be, either a contained arc or the prelude to something else).

I will definitely be looking to enrich my storytelling and worldcrafting for you guys, possibly using variant rules such as knock-off/branded merchandise to give different bonuses/penalties/RP opportunities, while also trying to handwave certain things to make it a bit easier quicker.

Thank you for being willing to try this again with me.

Edit: Feel free to suggest things to add colour or make for better gameplay/experiences.

Also, I'll be trying to do better on the OP, including having proper character profiles and some setting documents.
