I get this image of people just you know, having shocked slightly disoriented looks on their faces." Fengshui OOCly shouts, "you can leave the meeting and stand in your cube, or disconnect, but there will be no one walking around the world while we are all here." Fengshui OOCly shouts, "@town-hall to join the meeting" Connor sucks on the lollipop suggestively while staring at Vetsa. Hekate appears out of nowhere.

Vetsa lifts her arms above her head and the dangerously short hemline of her tight, long sleeve cropped top starts to rise as she arches her back in a supine stretch. It looks like she is about to have a sexy wardrobe malfunction any second... But, she relaxes her posture again before anything peeks out, alas. Fengshui OOCly shouts, "speak english please." Evelyn [to Hermes]: Okay now, try that again? Omara rolls up the sleeves of her frayed FYSU military jacket and cracks her knuckles. Hermes [to Evelyn]: I said Imma kill ya. Nion says, "I always appreciate it when peeps add a tease." Manuel reaches over and gently strokes Hermes's hair. Johnny [to Kenji]: can you understand people now? Evelyn [to Hermes]: You wouldn't dare! I'm too cute! Connor eyes Hermes warily. Evelyn pouts at Hermes cutely. Leon says, "Teases are the bestest." You hear '*brrreep* *brrreep*' coming from Hekate. Kenji casually nods at Johnny. Nion idly plays with the zipper of her biker leathers. Evelyn [to Hermes]: See? I'm cute! Hermes [to Connor]: Ssssuuuuuck it! Connor points at Hermes discretely. Connor thumbs open the retainer strap on his belt holster. Connor wraps his hand around the butt of the Beretta 9mm held securely in his belt holster and draws it out. You hear '*brrreep* *brrreep*' coming from Hekate. Hermes eyes Connor warily. Goodman teases his hair vainly. [OOC: You are using localized speech, other players may not hear/see you, see also 'help speaking'] Vetsa hooks her thumbs through the strings by the sides of her tiny maroon g-string and slowly pulls the down a bit, exposing herself to Hermes and everyone else briefly. Fengshui OOCly shouts, "speak english, everyone should understand everyone." Eddie pokes Kenji in the ribs rapidly. Johnny respectfully bows to Kenji. Connor [to Hermes]: WHAT?! Jp [to Hekate]: how is your phone ringing here? Vetsa says, "Oops." Mordith eeps at the gun.. Kenji pokes Eddie in the ribs repeatedly. You begin speaking loudly. Hekate [to Jp]: *speaking english, in a raspy soprano voice* I have no idea... Goodman teases his hair vainly. [OOC: You are using localized speech, other players may not hear/see you, see also 'help speaking'] Evelyn pokes Hermes in the ribs repeatedly. Ray sits cross-legged on the floor. [+][OOC-Chat] Mukyu~n: nyan~ Mordith exclaims, "HE'S GOT A GUN!" Hermes grabs Connor and dances around teasingly. Goobai appears out of nowhere. Evelyn [to Hermes]: See? i'm cute! Linekin walks across the stage and sits upon one of the large leather chairs. Fengshui OOCly shouts, "okay you can hit play on your spotify playlist now: http://sindo.me/m6kQQK" Connor laughs loudly. Vincent says, "Gridphones ring everywhere" Izzy absent mindedly pokes and fiddles with her stiletto. Connor pokes Hermes in the ribs repeatedly. Fengshui OOCly shouts, "okay you can hit play on your spotify playlist now: http://sindo.me/m6kQQK" Connor slips his Beretta 9mm into his belt holster in one swift motion. Connor snaps the retainer strap on his belt holster securely closed. Evelyn [to Connor]: See? it's fun! Manuel parties like it's 2099! Hermes exclaims loudly, "Playlist is ON!" OC: Linekin says, "Okay, we're going to begin soon, please start ramping down the chatter and poses."] Jp can't connect to spotify for some reason Nion listenses to the soothing sounds of intro. Goodman squees Izzy sighs faintly, eyes turning matte as she flicks the blade into its sheath again with a bored flourish. Izzy thumbs the release on the side of her stiletto, causing the ceramic blade to slide back inside the hilt. Vetsa flips open the latch on her lacquered saya. Eddie screams wildly and poke Kenji once in a dramatic fashion. Nion nods at lineken. Izzy reaches down and slides her stiletto into her left ankle sheath in one swift motion. Izzy reaches down and snaps her left ankle sheath securely closed. Manuel says, "WAT IS FIRST SONG FOR NON SPOTIFY PEOPLE" Hermes shuts up. Connor reaches over and compulsively strokes Nion's hair. Mordith asks, "This is a nice song, what's this called?" Evelyn whispers, "*something unintelligible*" to Erik. Conor appears out of nowhere. Connor eyes Conor warily. Hermes [to Manuel]: Intro by The XX. Vetsa takes a firm grasp of her katana and pulls it from her lacquered saya. OC: Buddha says, "ADMIN: Please have a seat on stage. PLAYERS: Please have a seat in the rows."] OC: Linekin says, "when we start, we need ONE PERSON at a time speaking or posing. RAISE YOUR HAND for attention please and wait to be called on"] Johnny heads toward the stage. Vetsa polishes her sword quietly from now on. OC: Fengshui says, "i will be going over all this as well"] Chris appears out of nowhere. Johnny walks across the stage and sits upon one of the large leather chairs. Hekate edges into the sixth row, and picks a seat and lowers theirself into it. Izzy humps Evelyn. OC: Buddha says, "That means -you-, Hekate, Goobai, Conor, Chris, Ray"] Conor edges into the sixth row, and picks a seat and lowers theirself into it. Nion says, "47 peeps connected... I think we hit record numbers of peeps connected last time." Conor tenderly gives Omara a warm hug. Mordith hugs Evelyn, "You are cute." OC: Goobai asks, "oh, i'm supposed to sit??"] Conor puts his rum tumbler to his lips and sips the smooth warm liquid. Mordith grins mischievously. Evelyn [to Mordith]: Aww, thank you! Jp asks, "Is the spotify link in the forum thread?" Atlas [to Goobai]: Yes. Evelyn tenderly gives Mordith a warm hug. Fengshui OOCly shouts, "TOWN HALL IS STARTED." Goobai edges into the sixth row, and picks a seat and lowers theirself into it. Connor fistbumps Hermes. Fengshui OOCly shouts, "everyone shush please" Conor kisses Nion on the lips passionately. Ray stands up from the floor. Fengshui grins widely and looks out at the crowds gathered in the amphitheater, enthusiasm apparent in his posture and in his eyes, Welcome! Welcome to our second and final Sindome Town Hall Meeting of 2015. Fengshui OOCly shouts, "second song in playlist just started btw" Sindome Amphitheater The Brobdingnagian structure encompassing you lends heavily to classical stylings from the Italian Renaissance, characterized by transcendent marble arches. Tens of thousands of seats comfortably furnished with the finest upholstery surround the arena in tiers, each laboriously designated with hand engraved golden plates. Sleek displays are available in front of every chair, appointed to relay information from whatever function the arena is hosting at the time in a variety of languages and an assortment of touch-screen options. The landings of each tier bear floor plaques lionizing the mega-corporations involved in the funding of the gargantuan building project, lending special thanks to names that only anybody who is anybody has heard of, fettered to the tongues of the unwashed masses. You would only have to wonder for a moment how such the revenue for such an exorbitant expense could be justified before being assaulted by innumerable holographic advertisements flickering into life along the rows, others being projected as gigantic slogans and logos in the air, the products owned by the largest and most influential corporations dominating the airspace by a huge margin. The advertisements blink out of existence just as rapidly as they had appeared, working on an annoyingly regular timer chosen by market psychologists to be as disorientating as distracting as possible to the average consumer. Recycling chutes located alongside every aisle hint promisingly towards a flourishing income stream provided by confections, fast-foods and consumer drugs. Overhead awaits a dizzying sight as anybody who were to look up would find themselves staring out into the captifying panorama of space. Long-dead stars burn fiercely billions of light years away from here, with a clarity unknown to your typical mudboy who has only seen the sky as a perversion marred by human pollutants. Lurid nebulas that cannot be seen by the human eye from here are as conspicuous as earthly clouds. A Nito-Kodak Chronos has a hologram of the date rotating above it: Saturday, October 3rd, 2100 : 6:00 PM. Slither Fengshui is standing on the raised stage, a wry smile on his face. Ray is looking around Chris is sitting on the floor, pale and exhausted. Chief-Justice Glitch, Builder Atlas, Jinx, Orlok, Curupira and HardHat Johnny are seated in the large leather chairs on the stage. The podium is vacant. Staff-Judge Gerik, Nakada Aki, Nion, Cadet-Judge Connor, Zinna Cat, Vincent, Seven, Jp and Quiet Kenji are sitting in the first row. Manuel, Lulu Kilbride, Hermes, Evelyn and Erik are sitting in the second row. You, Eddie, Amon, Leon, Proxy, Mordith, Mavka Vetsa, Gaz and Willheim are sitting in the third row. Ziva and Creepee Izzy are sitting in the fourth row. Kitten Xyra, Marcello and Salafan are sitting in the fifth row. Zapata Omara, Hekate, Conor Duffy and Goobai are sitting in the sixth row. There are no visible exits. Ray edges into the sixth row, and picks a seat and lowers theirself into it. Slither Fengshui (naked girl with straight light brown hair) A youthful man in his early thirties with bright blue eyes, closely cropped brown hair which is spiked up in the front and an easy smile. His eyes are a dark, inteligent blue.  Fengshui's right eye glows with a silver light. A small chip socket with no skillsofts slotted sits behind his left ear. His left arm is strong and muscular, his right arm is completely inorganic everywhere past his shoulder. The metal and moving parts of the arm has been painted a dark green. He has a lean physique, but his body is well toned. Fengshui is holding nothing. Fengshui is in spectacular condition. He is a little dusty. Fengshui spreads his hands out on either side of him at shoulder height, the gesture echoing his welcoming words from moments before, We have sooooo much to talk about! Chris sits cross-legged on the floor. Fengshui lowers his arms and begins ticking items off on each of his fingers, The State of the MOO Address from our Chief Justice, Johnny. Jinx, giving us the low-down on a bunch of balancing and updates and changes to gear. A breakdown of our recent Builder projects, some words on the IC and OOC world from two of our Senior GMs. OC: Manuel asks, "which song now?"] Vincent whispers, "*something unintelligible*" to Amon. Conor waves to Chris. OC: Ziva says, "Greenback boogie."] OC: Manuel says, "cool beans"] Chris stands up from the floor. Chris edges into the fourth row, and picks a seat and lowers theirself into it. Fengshui continues ticking items off on his left hand, somehow not running out of fingers even after the count goes past five, Updates from our last Town Hall meeting from Operations, a few words on Cooperative Competition The state of the Mix, the State of Topside and the Badlands and Space! Oh yes, space! New code, player submitted topics, and tons of discussion! Chris waves at Conor nonchalantly. Conor beckons Chris. Frijol appears out of nowhere. Frijol edges into the second row, and picks a seat and lowers theirself into it. Amon whispers, "*something unintelligible*" to Vincent. Linekin OOCly shouts, "enough whispering, this room is FULL of people" Fengshui rubs his hands together as he says, Weve got a lot to cover. That means we will be moving on from topics as the evening progresses that we might not be fully finished discussing. In those cases, and really, in any case where its warranted, we will be creating BGBB threads to continue our discussions. Chris stands from their seat in the fourth row, and edges their way out of it into the aisle. Fengshui rubs his hands together as he says, "Weve got a lot to cover. That means we will be moving on from topics as the evening progresses that we might not be fully finished discussing. In those cases, and really, in any case where its warranted, we will be creating BGBB threads to continue our discussions." Chris edges into the sixth row, and picks a seat and lowers theirself into it. Conor makes room for chira. OC: Conor says, "or whomever"] Willheim fits his hands in the pockets of his cowboy duster. Fengshui motions out at the crowd and says, "When we get to the discussion part of the evening, there are a few things everyone should be aware of and some etiquette that will need to be followed so that everyone has a chance to speak." Conor tenderly gives Chris a warm hug. [+][OOC-Chat] GlassesJacketShirtMan: uh, this is an ooc room right? so we're not actually roleplaying as our characters? [+][OOC-Chat] Staff Atlas: Correct. [+][OOC-Chat] trumpet emerlad's skelton of the abyss: Si. [+][OOC-Chat] Pro-Newbie Helper Jago says, "Totally ooc" [+][OOC-Chat] GothyGothy Portrait of Karma: And sssshhhhh while admin and others are talking. :) Fengshui motions over to Buddha, "If you want to speak on a topic, raise your hand. Youll be added to the queue for that topic and called on via xhelp when its your turn to speak. Please stand up when its your turn to speak. Either actually stand if you are actually sitting, or pose or emote it. When you are finished, please sit back down, or pose or emote sitting back down so its obvious you are done speaking." [-][OOC-Chat] coastie has left the channel. You left the "OOC-Chat" channel. Chris smiles innocently at Conor. Fengshui smiles at the crowd and says, "And of course, please have what you would like to say ready, as we do have limited time. You can follow along on the Agenda and have your statements, questions, concerns or feedback ready." Fengshui continues speaking, the smile remaining on his face as he do so, "Lets keep the cross talk to a minimum. Give each person your full attention and dont interrupt. You know, all the normal stuff." Fengshui hooks at thumb at himself and says, "I will be chiming in when its getting toward time to move on from a lengthy topic, and letting everyone know that there will be no more people added to the queue for that particular topic. After the meeting is over, everyone is welcome to stick around and chat Out of Character with their fellow community members, be it Admin or Player. I encourage you all to do just that!" Fengshui places his hands on either side of the podium and says, "Thank you all, from the bottom of my heart, not just for attending this meeting-- which is at weird times for many of you. Thank you for playing Sindome. Thank you for taking part in the story we are telling. Thank you for posting on the boards, liking us on Facebook, engaging with your fellow community members, helping new players on Game-Help, and generally helping bring to life this wonderfully terrible world we all live and die in." Fengshui motions to Johnny and says, "Our Chief Justice, ladies and gentleman. With the State of the MOO." I don't understand that. [try 'examine me', 'examine here' or 'examine <whatever>' for more help] Fengshui steps back from the podium and moves to stand further back on the stage with the rest of the staff. Amon starts applauding politely. You start applauding politely. Manuel starts applauding politely. Mordith starts applauding politely. Vetsa starts applauding politely. Leon gives a whistle. Eddie starts applauding politely. Nion starts applauding politely. Johnny rises from the plush leather seat that his rests on the stage. Hermes claps out of cue. Willheim starts applauding impolitely. Fengshui starts applauding politely. Connor starts applauding politely. Vincent startses to SHH people like he's at the movies. Johnny walks to the podium. Eddie eyes Hermes warily. Kenji starts applauding politely. Izzy rolls her eyes. Johnny says loudly, "Good Evening, Everyone." Salafan starts applauding politely. Johnny says loudly, "Thank you for coming." Conor layses his head on Chris's shoulder and dozes. Johnny exclaims loudly, "It's been just 6 months since we've last had one of these. When we polled the community, you told us you wanted to hear from us more often. Twice a year you said!" Johnny says loudly, "Putting one of these on takes prep-work from the whole team and I want to thank them for putting time and energy into today." Johnny says loudly, "This sort of thing takes some of us out of our comfort zones, but twice a year is something we can do, so on with the show." Siken appears out of nowhere. Siken says, "*speaking english, in a deep, basstone voice* Poof." Johnny says loudly, "We've done a lot of stuff in the last 6 months! 25 different new game features have been added." Manuel [to Siken]: Exactly what you are. Johnny says loudly, "In late April, early May, we brought back the long shuttered Kashflo Kasino. Now an independant space station orbiting Earth, it brought with it the need for Animated Landmarks, Space Transport Pilot NPCs, trendy new foods & gifts, and ultra-rare color-changing fabric DiamondWeave Mimetic Material." Manuel grins mischievously. Siken says, "Pooooooooooooooooof." Johnny eyeballs Siken warily. Johnny says loudly, "In late May, early June, we implemented and moved all Character Events out of the MOO into our Insights system. This was quickly followed by the @events command so admin can look at the data from these events from within the MOO. " Atlas takes a long drag from her lit Stella Nero cigar, exhaling a dark cloud of spicy smoke into the air. Conor snarls, showing his teeth and growls angrily. Siken sits cross-legged on the floor. Johnny says loudly, "Before June was finished, we'd created explosives capable of causing debris choked exits, had some successes with our codified Vacation Character process, had rush hour traffic in the express tubes and Stealth was significantly reigned in when Linekin spent hours and hours implementing 'hidden emote' triggers in the tons of places you could inappropriately perform emotive actions and remain hidden." Linekin applauds that. Johnny [to Linekin]: Thank you for that. I hope you found the process educational as well as helpful to the community. Izzy starts applauding politely. Johnny says loudly, "In July, Badlands survival got some major love with buildable things you can erect and dismantle like tents, burn barrels and water condensing units. Erect them together and you get an encampment! We adjusted alcohol tolerance so that it wears off. We added a whole new hospital to the red sector, made ventilation shafts echo voices, and even added disposable scrubs." Johnny says loudly, "August was when we created our Stickers framework. Stickers on things show up as extra details when you look at the thing. The first use of the Stickers framework immediately followed with clothing damage. Bullet Hole and Knife Slash stickers accumulate on your clothing until they just fall apart. Other stickers, Patches, when applied to the clothing remove the damage stickers." Johnny says loudly, "We didn't slow down in September either. Static Ziplines, being able to address /all, expanded the Strip ASCII @access option across the SIC and fuel gauges, added the Combat Labels @access option, fixed our 'deformed woman' short description problem for NPCs, added the 'escort' command and put the (always been there) SHI Robotics Factory in the game." Leon clapses for that. Linekin applauds accessibility! Mordith starts applauding politely. [-][Game-Help] Goobai: What does 'escort' do? :o Jinx grins mischievously. Johnny exclaims loudly, "We've been fookin' busy!" Vincent raises his hand. [-][Game-Help] Frijol: help movement Kenji starts applauding politely. [-][Game-Help] Izzy: It's a follow but you move before the person you're following does. Eddie clap clap claps. [-][Game-Help] Evelyn says, "yeah, it's fucking awesome." Linekin rises from the plush leather seat that his rests on the stage. Johnny says loudly, "Please save your questions for the end, I'll be happy to answer them then." [-][Game-Help] Hermes: Shhh Siken appluades non-politely. Johnny exclaims loudly, "Besides new features, you also reported some 260+ bugs -- thank you!" Linekin walks across the stage and sits upon one of the large leather chairs. Johnny says loudly, "Of those reported, we've been able to resolve more than 80 of them. We've got a lot to look at and we're still not resolving them at a pace to keep up with the rate you report issues, so a Bug Scrub is still something we need to get in the habit of doing." Johnny says loudly, "We do need to work on our communication skills though (http://i.imgur.com/RnwUrvD.png) as almost a 3rd of resolved bugs are situations where you felt normal game behavior was broken." Johnny says loudly, "Additionally to the new feature and bug fixes, over 300 typos have been fixed in this same timeframe. Persephone has been going gangbusters on them in -every- place they exist. It's been huge."" Nion peers at the pie chart. Then eats it. Catalith appears out of nowhere. Johnny says loudly, "In all, the new features and bug fixes resulted in code changes over 850 times, for as long as 42 days in a row, including the entire month of June." Johnny says loudly, "In this time, we've also gotten 8 perma pad donations, which we've completed 5 of them." Johnny says loudly, "A good bit of what goes into each perma pad is coming up with new game elements when appropriate." Johnny says loudly, "I hope this shows that not only does your donation directly support its physical and technical needs, but it helps drive feature development and expanding the breadth of what Sindome means." Catalith edges into the fourth row, and picks a seat and lowers theirself into it. Johnny says loudly, "Speaking of donations, I have the pleasure of thanking you once again for helping us cover our expenses for another year." Johnny says loudly, "You see, thanks to your love and appreciation, we're just one perma pad away from raising enough in 2015 to cover expected 2016 expenses." Johnny says loudly, "I can't thank you enough for helping ensure Sindome is here tomorrow and next year." [++] New post to topic 'Seating, making it more immersive.' in Ideas [++] http://sindo.me/m6agK5 Linekin applauds loudly! Kenji starts applauding enthusiastically. Johnny says loudly, "As far as expenses go, everything is still costing the same as last Town Hall." Vetsa cheers! Goobai starts applauding politely. Mordith starts applauding politely. Fengshui starts applauding politely. Connor leans slightly forward and licks Johnny suggestively. Catalith starts applauding politely. Glitch starts applauding politely. Lulu applauds politely. Salafan starts applauding politely. Amon sniffles and starts crying woefully as tears roll off his cheeks. Siken asks, "Will there be more pie charts?" Connor starts applauding politely. Izzy stabs herself as means of thanks. Johnny says loudly, "We still leverage free-tier services from a number of companies, we're still doing most of our advertising through Facebook posts boosted to audiences who like various Cyberpunk movies, books, shows and games." Manuel cheers loudly! Johnny says loudly, "I've previously mentioned Insights, where all our Character Events are going." Johnny says loudly, "I am personally paying for this software, as it's priced out of our realistic budget. I may not continue paying for Insights forever as it's more a nice-to-have than something core to the game." Johnny says loudly, "Since coming online in May, it's recorded some 9 million game events and we're on pace to be able to record a full years worth of such events. With all those events, we can find out some interesting things. Some at the level of just one day, some across months of time." Johnny says loudly, "For Example, I can show you that Hermes has earned the award for most vane character with over 1400 appearance edits! Almost twice as many as the next person. http://imgur.com/GJklGOK " Fengshui giggles playfully. Salafan laughs loudly. Siken grins mischievously. Hermes turns red as he blushes furiously. Hermes eyes his surroundings warily. Evelyn laughs loudly. Johnny exclaims loudly, "He swears its from his @macros, but I've seen things you people wouldn't I kid, I kid!" Jinx laughs Leon [to Hermes]: keep up the hair, mano. Eddie starts applauding wildly. Evelyn smiles warmly at Hermes. Salafan says, "*speaking english, in a soft, girly and slightly French accented voice* Oh wait Im on that list too..." Mordith chuckles softly. Hermes approvingly nods at Johnny. Johnny says loudly, "So lets look at Combat Numbers! http://imgur.com/0vmFr7G" Johnny says loudly, "300 Attackers managed to deal 45,622 in damage over 3,730 successful hits. Someone managed to do a single hit that dealt 82 points of damage. I'm not going to tell you who or with what, as that would skew gameplay. " Semya appears out of nowhere. Vetsa whistles low. Johnny says loudly, "What I can tell you about weapons is you're used to fighting with your hands more than actual weapons. http://imgur.com/jTKp8Vi Thats to be expected though since you fall back on them when you don't have your weapons. " Izzy exclaims, "I's over.... 81!!!!" Curupira squints his eyes at the numbers Semya edges into the fourth row, and picks a seat and lowers theirself into it. Salafan giggles playfully. Johnny says loudly, "149 cybernetic procedures that required a tool were successfully conducted by you cyberdocs out there. You guys love your nanos, almost 40% of these were for nanogenic mutations. http://imgur.com/5jnfjeF" Johnny says loudly, "When it comes to money, you've earned more than 11.5 million chyen http://imgur.com/ZLJZHat, you've deposited 9.8 million of that chyen http://imgur.com/PAE6eUQ and subsequently withdrawled more than 8 million of it. http://imgur.com/b6Tk2dM" Vincent raises his hand like a rocket. Johnny says loudly, "Along the way, 93 damn pickpockets stole almost 390,000 chyen from you over 570 times! And one of you lost more than 9500 chyen in a single pick! OUCH! http://imgur.com/N7FBnJs" Manuel shouts loudly, "THAT WAS ME, GODDAMNIT!" Amon laughs loudly. Mordith winces at the number. Evelyn exclaims, "95k? Hurting!" Atlas OOCly shouts, "We are not calling for questions and please do not use thoughts right now. " Evelyn exclaims, "Seriously, hurting!" OC: Linekin says, "ORDER PLEASE"] Johnny says loudly, "In 6 month time, we've had over 300 fresh faced immigrants come into Withmore City! http://imgur.com/CUXOSHY This week, before Townhall, we'd seen 123 unique PCs and thats up 16% from last week http://imgur.com/e6mffZx -- first semester is well underway it seems." Fengshui OOCly shouts, "if you're following along on the spotify soundtrack (http://sindo.me/mnx8ES we are now about to start the song: Doomsday by Nero. Sync up!" Siken [to Fengshui]: Oooh. Thank you for reminding. Johnny says loudly, "Before Townhall, I captured our connection numbers for this week too. http://imgur.com/Z7AOLyA We had 44 people connected at once, as few as 6 in the wee hours of the morning and averaged 26.6 in between. Right now, we've got 50 on, high of 51." Johnny says loudly, "You've looked for help over 10,000 times and of the 9,800 times that you found a help topic, 12% of the time, it's been for the sic. http://imgur.com/tVOYwM9" Amon's body goes limp as he slumps to the ground unconscious. Johnny says loudly, "Your character's social life drives a lot of your RP events. Poses, emotes, socials, using the sic, etc. Close to 400K in distinct actions. http://imgur.com/chbKHl9 You can see that socials are used almost as often as emotes, but pose dominates the activity with 40% of actions." Amon hauls himself to his feet, rubbing his eyes. Johnny says loudly, "Of those social actions, almost a quarter of them are nods, followed by chuckles, sighs, grins and smiles. http://imgur.com/R7wwwhs Fucking friendly bunch." Amon edges into the third row, and picks a seat and lowers theirself into it. Johnny says loudly, "You've sent a shitload of private sic messages though, some 33,000 of them. http://imgur.com/8zLwCII " Evelyn chuckles softly. Johnny says loudly, "When you're out socializing (and probably when your PC is home alone), you like to smoke cigs and drink beer more than any of the harder drugs. http://imgur.com/zdZklN4 Not a single hard drug in the top list." Johnny says loudly, "Between your drugs, cyberware, combat, encumbrance, health and clothing the stat you're getting penalties the most in is Appearance http://imgur.com/khi6AIg " Johnny says loudly, "And the stat you're getting bonuses the most in is Appearance too! http://imgur.com/Bi23icF " Frijol rakes the fingers of his pawprinted hands into and through his dirty-blond hair, pulling it back to drop down his neck. Johnny asks loudly, "Style over Substance I guess, hmm?" Fengshui chuckles softly. Johnny grins mischievously. Johnny says loudly, "The MOO has been healthy since its little flipout in mid June http://imgur.com/hh98xer where it started to consume gobs of memory with saved state variables in suspended tasks that were accumulating." Johnny says loudly, "Here's a shot our chart where I've reduced out the spike in June so you can see the subtle growth in RAM usage as the MOO slowly grows over time. http://imgur.com/3mW0mwl " Glitch teleports out. Johnny says loudly, "Speaking of MOO growth. We carefully track the size of the MOO that gets backed up as one single file. In April, we were at around 69MB. http://imgur.com/Y4jz45V " Johnny says loudly, "We dropped a lot of weight when we moved character events out of the MOO. We're no longer growing because of that reason, but we continue to grow for other reasons. Items accumulate in your closets and containers and what not, people move on, the stuff stays behind." Glitch teleports in. Johnny says loudly, "As of now, we've consumed all the space we've saved by moving events out of the MOO. http://imgur.com/SObyaAL " Armstrong appears out of nowhere. Johnny says loudly, "Growth isn't evil, but it does need to be managed. Eventually we'll have apartment thievery as a way of recycling gear too. PCs and NPCs will start wanting to rob you. You'll work to defend your space and stuff, should be fun for everyone. :)" Linekin appears out of nowhere. Johnny says loudly, "We're looking for GMs and Builders, JavaScript Coders and MOO Coders.

Conor's body goes limp as he slumps to the ground unconscious. Jinx grins Glitch walks across the stage and sits upon one of the large leather chairs. Jinx says loudly, "But first I'm going to talk about a bit of what we did the past few months." Jinx says loudly, "We've added new armor to the game. A few of them with a few more to come." Armstrong listens intently Jinx says loudly, "Simple as that. We've been working for months on making new armor to the game and that takes a lot of work. Writing, re-writing, assembling, disassembling and polishing." Armstrong pulls out a wad of chyen and counts it. Jinx says loudly, "We started the armor update by adding the low end of the spectrum and then working our way up...." Jinx says loudly, "Every armor in the game now has color, every brand has a limited range of available colors." Jinx shrug at the crowd and says "Why limited? To make it easier to get matching pieces." OC: Linekin says, "keep all emits to the applause breaks please, thank you"] Jinx says loudly, "To support this new need for descriptions we're using both IC and OOC help. That's via the ZDW design studio and via Fix-it. Thanks to everyone that has been contributing, doing clothing is harder than weapons." Jinx applauds the crowd "You've made possible to bring back Xo3 into the dome." Fengshui cheers loudly. Johnny starts applauding politely. Kenji starts applauding politely. I don't understand that. [try 'examine me', 'examine here' or 'examine <whatever>' for more help] You cheer. Connor starts applauding politely. Eddie starts applauding politely. Mordith starts applauding politely. Atlas starts applauding politely. Catalith starts applauding politely. Goodman quietly Willheim exclaims, "*speaking english, in a low, mildly mid-western accented voice* This is all over my head, but it sounds positive!" Jinx walks to a side of the stage You continue emoting softly. Vetsa absent mindedly pokes and fiddles with her matte black Xo3 battle helmet. Jinx says loudly, "Now into the questions from the community: Chrome." Izzy grins mischievously. Jinx eyes the people seated Buddha calls for silence. Jinx says loudly, "We have plans to expand cyberware in the game. Right now there isn't full support for all types of cyberware (limbs and etc) and it all looks like normal limbs." Hermes raises a hand. [-][Game-Help] Bug 'Need anything NPC's calling variables incorrectly.' submitted to Gojira! It will be available at http://gojira.sindome.org/browse/MOO-6037 soon. OC: Linekin says, "he means the ones already asked in the agenda forum, not an invitation yet for new questions. Handraising will be invited at a prompt, so please hold the questions till prompted."] Hermes retreats his hand shamefully. Jinx says loudly, "We're aware of this and it is on the list of things to be expanded. The chrome that we have right now is the cheapest that there will be in game, don't expect things to go cheaper. At the moment we have the base on what everything will be expanded in the future." Jinx pace to the other side of the stage Jinx says loudly, "But the plans are to have limbs that will increase attributes, get you faster or stronger and such. There is also the need to have an extension to the damage subsystems in order to allow limb loss. These two are coupled, but I already have templates for mechanical arms, legs, hands and feet to be described and setup for when we get there." Jinx turns to the crowd "But right now we're focusing on finishing the armor's first pass." Jinx raises two fingers up "Question number 2 Combat Messages: there are two points of view here, people that want it longer and people that want it shorter." Johnny shouts loudly, "COMBAT LABELS!" Jinx says loudly, "My view is that combat is spammy and the long blade messages are beyond the curve of what combat messages should be. When a fight is happening the players involved barely have time to read the scroll and for that I'll be moving to shortening them." Jinx winks at Johnny "Yeah, labels help." Jinx says loudly, "But every attack message should convey an action of about half to one and a half second. The long blades messages are a pet peeve of mine where they are too cartoony and/or too meta to be realistic combat scroll. They would look good in a movie but not on a flood of attacks, misses, parries.." Jinx shrugs Jinx says loudly, "Specially when you're fighting more than one on one..." Fengshui OOCly shouts, "catch up with the spotify playlist for the event: we just started Queen by Perfume Genius 1:00 in. (http://sindo.me/mnx8ES" Jinx says loudly, "Question number 3." Jinx says loudly, "Fire based weapons besides explosives: Short answer is yes with added other types of damage." Jinx says loudly, "The first pass on weapons was to balance and set to a minimum standard all weapons in the game so everything that existed was a good weapon to use in the game. We went from around 5 weapons that were finalized to over 60." Jinx gets out his WAI XM-777 minigun. Johnny ducks. Jinx grins Buddha ducks. Jinx says loudly, "After we finish with armor we'll be doing heavy weapons and energy weapons. That means not only flamethrowers and the like but tasers, blasters, grenade launchers, sonics and et cetera. We needed armor to be ready first as these non-physical weapons will need some kind of armor to protect you from it. Gladly the MOO already supports other kinds of damage for a long time and not much code will be needed." Jinx puts his WAI XM-777 minigun away. Jinx gets out his ZMI XM196 minigun. Jinx says loudly, "And of course miniguns..." Jinx grins Jinx chuckles Jinx says loudly, "Also impromptu weapons are something that is both in game and more should be coming with time." Jinx says loudly, "Now to question four..." Jinx says loudly, "Availability of items.. Again with the items being "almost non existent" whining." Jinx wipes a tear and plays a tiny violin Jinx grins Johnny chuckles softly. Jinx says loudly, "I call this whining because it is one of my tasks to be overseeing item availability in the game. And there are very few items that aren't readily available in the game." Jinx says loudly, "We've created a handful of stores in the past two years and increased the items on a bunch of existing stores to make sure things are available to all the players." Jinx says loudly, "As Johnny showed, we have tools not only to see how many items are in the game, but where they are. How many are with players, how many are stashed, how many are for sale. Even the number of instances of that item is accounted for and rarity will automatically manage how many are available at any given time." Jinx says loudly, "I also know who's buying what where. I know what are the most sold items in the game, who spent the most money and in what at any given time. Please don't think that we're not giving the economy enough attention, because it is monitored daily. Even item delivery to stores and stores sales are accounted and evaluated daily." Jinx says loudly, "So please let me know over xhelp what item is unavailable that broke your RP and plot and I'll have a look. But before you do this think if getting that item isn't a plot in itself..." Jinx raises his brows at the crowd Linekin applauds that right there. Linekin says, "*speaking english, in a salty voice* Amen to that." Linekin says, "It's IC." Jinx says loudly, "Now to the final question:" Atlas materializes from a sudden swirl of mist and fog. Jinx says loudly, "Robots and drones: YES, god yes. We've been working a lot on a system for drones and robots in the past year or so. It is still in development and as things shift it might go up or down on the development team's priority. But the subsystem is defined and awaiting to be coded." Jinx says loudly, "We have active builders working on it right now." Johnny shouts loudly, "GOT DICKALL FOR PEOPLE THE WITH RIGGING SKILL ROBOTS NEED THOUGH, SO ITS NEVER BEEN A STRONG PRIORITY. ;)" Jinx says loudly, "So, once again, thanks for coming up tonight. And thanks for playing. Game on." Jinx takes a bow Linekin rises from the plush leather seat that his rests on the stage. Atlas rises from the plush leather seat that her rests on the stage. Jinx walks across the stage and sits upon one of the large leather chairs. Johnny applauds politely at Jinx. Linekin applauds. Vetsa starts applauding politely. Mordith starts applauding politely. Siken starts applauding politely. Manuel starts applauding politely. Connor starts applauding politely. Goobai starts applauding politely. Fengshui starts applauding politely. Hermes starts applauding naughtily. Eddie starts applauding politely. Kenji starts applauding politely. Chris starts applauding politely. Leon starts applauding politely. Izzy splorfs. Johnny points at Hermes discretely. You start applauding politely. Proxy starts applauding politely. Fengshui steps up to the podium, "Okay, speaking of Builders..." Nion applauds raciously and woops. Cheech blows smoke rings over Jinx. Fengshui motions to Atlas, "Speaking on behalf of the Builders." Linekin raises his hand. Fengshui steps back from the podium. Atlas waves nonchalantly. Connor casually nods at Cheech. Atlas takes a long drag from her lit Stella Nero cigar, exhaling a dark cloud of spicy smoke into the air. Atlas says, "*speaking english* Hello everyone. I've only got a couple of minutes to do a quick chat." Atlas says, "Some of you know me. Some of you have worked closely with me. I have handled a lot of perma pads this year." Linekin sits cross-legged on the floor. Linekin stands up from the floor. Linekin walks across the stage and sits upon one of the large leather chairs. Atlas says, "And we appreciate every damned donation." Atlas says, "And we appreciate the fun that goes into creating these places for you and with you. " OC: Linekin says, "link from sd.org home page for 'donate to sindome'"] Atlas says, "But, builders don't just add buildings. " Atlas says, "And, builders aren't just admin." OC: Izzy says, "http://www.sindome.org/sponsor/"] Atlas says, "The builders are in the player base. Every typo you submit correctly, every time we ask for help on our fix it channel and you chime in, when you answer on the BGBB for our calls for descriptions. " Atlas says, "This year alone we've solved over 300 typos with the help of one of our builders Persephone who tackled the project with fervor. " Salafan starts applauding politely. Atlas says, "With your help we've added some tastes to drinks, over a hundred new rooms, new armor descriptions, spaceship part descriptions, new food, new items." Atlas takes a long drag from her lit Stella Nero cigar, exhaling a dark cloud of spicy smoke into the air. Buddha chuckles. Johnny wrinkles his nose at the spice. Atlas says, "Along with many new items that you may not have encountered yet. So, thank you players and all admin for your contributions to this small world of ours. If you have ANY questions about perma pads, donation pads, or want to join our exclusive xfix channel you can xhelp us, use help@sindome.org, atlas@sindome.org, or you can wait until the end of the show." Builder Atlas (naked woman with very long curly platinum blond hair) A woman with broad shoulders and arms, built up from holding the world aloft. Mist swirls around her body, covering only the important things. Her eyes are a piercing blue as she watches everything with a practiced calm. Curly platinum blond hair flows down her back in soft ringlets. Around Atlas's neck dangles a tungsten carbide Kashflo chip necklace. Atlas is holding a lit Stella Nero cigar and a sapphire flarelighter. Atlas is in spectacular condition. She is dirty in a few places and a little dusty. Willheim's body goes limp as he slumps to the ground unconscious. Atlas says, "Thank you again for supporting the MOO." Atlas walks across the stage and sits upon one of the large leather chairs. Siken starts applauding politely. Leon starts applauding franticly. Connor starts applauding politely. Catalith starts applauding politely. Chris starts applauding politely. Mordith starts applauding politely. Kenji starts applauding politely. Lulu applauds quietly. Fengshui smiles and steps back up to the podium, "Thank you. Now, two of our senior GMs want to say some words." Nion breakses out the legos and buildses a portrait of Atlas, then worships it on her knees. Fengshui motions to Glitch and Linekin. Izzy throws money all over Atlas. Fengshui steps back from the podium. Linekin rises from the plush leather seat that his rests on the stage. Linekin waves. Willheim hauls himself to his feet, rubbing his eyes. Willheim edges into the third row, and picks a seat and lowers theirself into it. Linekin Coder (naked short man with amber eyes) A salty Downeaster in an ear-flapped fur-lined leather cap, a red-and-black flannel shirt, oiled canvas hunting pants and duck-boots. Linekin is holding a NLM LiteTerm 205. Linekin is in spectacular condition. He is dirty in a few places and a little dusty. Jinx cheers Linekin makes room for Glitch. Glitch rises from the plush leather seat that his rests on the stage. Chief-Justice Glitch (average man carrying a gun and wearing a ProTek Proline nanoweave dress) Glitch has on a black and chocolate dress of nanoweave. The dress falls to about mid-calf, hugging his figure tightly and making his curves stand out. The black is crisscrossed with a chocolate mesh of kevlar and spider-weave. The cut of the dress's neck leaves much to your imagination. It was clearly intended to cover and protect, not to display or stylize. His neck is covered largely by a high, stiff collar of the same material as the dress. Glitch moves somewhat stiffly due to the dress's bulk and weight, but looks very solid and protected. A pair of glossy emerald green pair of %color Stay-Put heels cling to the bottoms of his feet, the high heels lending a graceful arch to his feet and calves. The soles of the heels hang from the bottoms of his feet without the aid of straps, leaving his feet completely open, resting only on a thin layer of emerald green leather. The three inch spike style heel clicks lightly with every step, filling the air around his with the sensual sound of high heels in motion. His toenails are painted the exact colour of the heels, a rich glossy emerald green that shimmers when he moves. Glitch is holding a SpyderCo paintball marker. Glitch is in spectacular condition. He is dirty in a few places and a little dusty. Glitch steps up to the podium and adjusts the micropohone. Glitch says loudly, "*speaking english* Hello welcome everyone. I'm sure there's alot of people here who haven't directly interacted with me. My name is Glitch and I'm a Senior GM. I wanted to talk to you all about a couple of things with regards to the current roleplay environs within the game." Linekin nods sagely and pays attention to Glitch. Glitch says loudly, "So, let's get down to it. Currently, we have a total of five permanent gamemasters including myself. We have had some staff attrition since our last Town Hall, however this is natural, and expected. As outlined by Johnny, we are currently looking for additional staff to help provide a greater level of support as well as additional features to you the players." Fengshui OOCly shouts, "50 seconds into Born to Die by Lana Del Ray on the Playlist." Glitch says loudly, "Could all our GMs please give a wave to the players please." Atlas waves nonchalantly. Linekin waves! Buddha waves nonchalantly. Orlok waves nonchalantly. Linekin pokes Glitch in the ribs repeatedly. Fengshui sorts of waves? Glitch waves nonchalantly. Jinx puts a hand under his armpit and makes farting noises Glitch laughs loudly at Fengshui. Glitch says loudly, "And ...moving on." [OOC: The game has been saved and backed up successfully to disk. 'help cp'] Hermes is summoned in by Linekin. Glitch says loudly, "We are currently adding between ten to twenty notes per day (to give context, it was approximately 150 per two week period twelve months ago) So we've seen a marked increase, in line with our increase in player base over this period despite a slight reduction in total GM numbers." Glitch says loudly, "The playerbase, for the most part is currently heavily centralised around the red area however there have been a slight change and there is slightly increased player activity on the upper levels. Subsequently red is where the majority of our GM efforts tend to be focused. This shifts as the playerbase centralizes and fluctuates to different areas over time. We try to be as flexible as possible in regards to this." Glitch says loudly, "We currently have at least five world plots in different stages of progress and rollout which are scheduled to proceed over the next six to twelve months. We now have plot meetings approximately every two to four weeks to progress and flesh out and discuss new ideas. This also involves scoping out changes to existing code and as well as creation of new code by our programmers to accomodate these requirements." Glitch says loudly, "Our focus over the next six months will be game world wide plotting activities to allow as many players as possible to experience dome-wide GM-driven roleplay." Nion nods approvingly. Glitch says loudly, "Now I wanted to make a point to personally thank our coders, Johnny, Slither, Linekin and our Quartermaster Jinx - because the modifications that they each make to the IC world allow us as GMs to create much more invoking and engrossing storylines and we wouldn't be able to do half of the cool shit that we're about to do without their constant and tireless work on a daily basis." Glitch starts applauding loudly. Siken starts applauding politely. Kenji starts applauding loudly. Semya starts applauding politely. Buddha applauds. Mordith starts applauding politely. Chris starts applauding politely. Salafan starts applauding politely. Leon whistles. Connor loudly whistles at Glitch. Linekin smiles modestly. Nion twirls a klaxon overhead. Vincent stands from their seat in the first row and easily moves away from it. Johnny smiles politely. Eddie starts applauding politely. Fengshui starts applauding politely. Vincent walks around the front of the rows of seats and picks one out to sit in, and lowers theirself into it. Jinx salutes Linekin steps up to the podium and adjusts the micropohone. Linekin steps away from the podium. Izzy salutes so hard she decapitates herself. Glitch says loudly, "Finally, I also wanted to take the time to thank you the players for spending your free time with us here at Sindome. Without you players, Sindome would simply be lines of code and GMs crafting plots with noone for them to benefit. It is your actions - your roleplay as it were that makes the game alive and creating new things, or experiences for you to live out and enjoy in game, is the reason why we all put the time into the game that we do. So thank you." Glitch steps away from the podium. Glitch walks across the stage and sits upon one of the large leather chairs. Linekin steps up to the podium and adjusts the micropohone. Hiro appears out of nowhere. Linekin waves. "I just have a couple of quick additions. Thank you Glitch!" Hiro edges into the sixth row, and picks a seat and lowers theirself into it. Sindome Amphitheater The Brobdingnagian structure encompassing you lends heavily to classical stylings from the Italian Renaissance, characterized by transcendent marble arches. Tens of thousands of seats comfortably furnished with the finest upholstery surround the arena in tiers, each laboriously designated with hand engraved golden plates. Sleek displays are available in front of every chair, appointed to relay information from whatever function the arena is hosting at the time in a variety of languages and an assortment of touch-screen options. The landings of each tier bear floor plaques lionizing the mega-corporations involved in the funding of the gargantuan building project, lending special thanks to names that only anybody who is anybody has heard of, fettered to the tongues of the unwashed masses. You would only have to wonder for a moment how such the revenue for such an exorbitant expense could be justified before being assaulted by innumerable holographic advertisements flickering into life along the rows, others being projected as gigantic slogans and logos in the air, the products owned by the largest and most influential corporations dominating the airspace by a huge margin. The advertisements blink out of existence just as rapidly as they had appeared, working on an annoyingly regular timer chosen by market psychologists to be as disorientating as distracting as possible to the average consumer. Recycling chutes located alongside every aisle hint promisingly towards a flourishing income stream provided by confections, fast-foods and consumer drugs. Overhead awaits a dizzying sight as anybody who were to look up would find themselves staring out into the captifying panorama of space. Long-dead stars burn fiercely billions of light years away from here, with a clarity unknown to your typical mudboy who has only seen the sky as a perversion marred by human pollutants. Lurid nebulas that cannot be seen by the human eye from here are as conspicuous as earthly clouds. A Nito-Kodak Chronos has a hologram of the date rotating above it: Saturday, October 3rd, 2100 : 7:12 PM. Slither Fengshui is standing on the raised stage, a wry smile on his face. Siken is sitting on the floor. Creative Cheech, The Buddha, Orlok, Curupira, Creative Cheech, HardHat Johnny, Jinx, Builder Atlas and Chief-Justice Glitch are seated in the large leather chairs on the stage. Linekin Coder is standing at the podium Staff-Judge Gerik, Nakada Aki, Nion, Cadet-Judge Connor, Zinna Cat, Seven, Jp, Quiet Kenji and Vincent are sitting in the first row. Manuel, Lulu Kilbride, Evelyn, Erik and Frijol are sitting in the second row. You, Eddie, Leon, Proxy, Mordith, Mavka Vetsa, Gaz, Amon and Willheim are sitting in the third row. Ziva, Creepee Izzy, Catalith, Semya and Armstrong are sitting in the fourth row. Kitten Xyra, Marcello and Salafan are sitting in the fifth row. Zapata Omara, Hekate, Goobai, Ray, Chris and Kobayashi Hiro are sitting in the sixth row. There are no visible exits. Glitch smiles innocently. Linekin says, "Glitch pointed out that there's a focus on Red GM support. I want to make clear that there ARE pockets of concentrated activity, so, the GM attention is proportionate. In two particular areas, GM attention is actually very concentrated, due to certain game features which certain character roles are involved with. This involves regular corporate plot-related GM support, as well as an entire functional area of the game which I won't name OOCly." Linekin says, "I also want to address economy, item availability. I wholeheartedly echo JInx in encouraging you all to treat this as plot and not economy flaws." Linekin says, "This is not a flaw! There is practically NOTHING, other than extremely controlled items (ICly and themefully), which can't be procured via RP. If your character doesn't know who can get it, they can work on finding out." Jinx smiles Gaz's body goes limp as he slumps to the ground unconscious. Cedric appears out of nowhere. Linekin says, "My role has changed a couple of different times over the past year. I went full-time coder, and then after we lost the Head GM, I came back to GM wor, and am about half and half not." Linekin says, "Now." Gaz hauls himself to his feet, rubbing his eyes. Linekin exclaims, "Last thing: Welcome to new players!" I don't understand that. [try 'examine me', 'examine here' or 'examine <whatever>' for more help] Fengshui starts applauding politely. You cheer. Salafan cheers Glitch starts applauding politely. Atlas applauds politely at Linekin. Cedric edges into the second row, and picks a seat and lowers theirself into it. Buddha applauds politely. Mordith grins cheesily. Izzy installs studdlys on all the newbies, giving them PDS. Nion applauds the new players for having oustmarted her on a few occasions... Siken holds up a sign that reads 'Get out!' Hekate starts applauding weakly. Atlas eyes Siken warily. Eddie starts applauding politely. Connor starts applauding epicly. Siken eyes Atlas warily. Chris starts applauding politely. Goobai starts applauding politely. Jinx cheers Linekin says, "There are frequently questions about dealing/interacting with NPCs. There is a lot of material on the forums on the website. Please just type 'talk to NPC' into the search field in the website header to find them! The material's all there, no need to open a discussion here on it" Linekin waves again. "Thank you!" Linekin steps away from the podium. Siken turns the sign around, which now reads 'We love immies!' Mordith starts applauding politely. You reach over and compulsively stroke Siken's hair. Jinx wolf whistles Semya gives all the newbs candy. Izzy quicklies add to Siken's sign with a pen. 'We love immies' money' Semya applauds politely at Linekin. Connor eyes Semya warily. Vetsa gives all the newbs molotovs. Nion prepares for war with the new generation. Semya eyes Connor warily. Mordith chuckles softly. Goobai gets beat up by all the newbs. Izzy nods at Vetsa approvingly. Connor judges everyone. Nion judges Connor. Connor moans. Fengshui steps up to the podium. Mordith wonders where Judge Dredd is. Nion [to Connor]: 8 for style. Jinx points at the minigun Fengshui says loudly, "We are a bit behind schedule so I'm going to skip the long pauses for effect and just slam you with some text. try to keep the socials to a minimum for this." Atlas [to Jinx]: Shoot me. Buddha calls for silence. Linekin walks across the stage and sits upon one of the large leather chairs. Fengshui waves at the crowd, "I'm Fengshui, also known as Slither. I've been a Sindome player for over 12 years. Not as long as Johnny who just celebrated 18 years, but you know-- I'm older than Timmy now. I handle operations. I used to be the Head GM, for many years. I am a coder. I organize these meetings and admin-side meetings and generally handle things at a high level when they came up. I also play on occasion. Normally we keep our alts a secret but mine is not." Fengshui motions to Seven. Seven [to Fengshui]: *speaking english, in a hispanic mixer accented voice* Fuuuuck you. Jinx laughs Fengshui continues, "I want to talk a bit about our social presence. Ive been working to increase engagement on the BGBB with posts, polls on the website, cross posting BGBB topics on our Facebook Page, stuff like that. We have over 1000 likes on Facebook! And it increases every day. Recommend the page to friends you think might be interested, its always a positive. If you dont already like us on Facebook, just put Sindome into your search bar and youll find us!" Fengshui snaps his fingers and a holographic 5 appears in the air above him "Five main progress points from the past Town Hall." Fengshui holds up a single finger, Armor refactoring plan is ready. All the numbers are plotted and tested. Now were are making them into reality. Xo3 is an example of that. Man, Im excited for Xo3. It used to be what we had, before Xo5. If youve read old Grid posts, youve probably heard of it. Fengshui holds up a second finger, "All available armor in game has color variations." Fengshui holds up a third finger, "New stores to sell items to the players, existing stores with improved item list. We are making gear that should be easily available, easily available. At the same time we arent just throwing anything in there-- Fixers are your friend for the hard to find stuff." Fengshui holds up a fourth finger, "On that note, Ammunition is easier to acquire inside the city now. Also, you can make it if you know how and have the right stuff. Thats not new-- I just wanted to mention it." Fengshui holds up a fifth finger, "You heard Johnny mention charts and such. We have new Insights and reports and information in a visual form that allows for better monitoring of the economy." Fengshui drops his hand back to the podium as the holographic 5 fades from existence, "Now, for my favorite topic of conversation. Cooperative Competition." Fengshui motions out to the crowd with his left hand, "Were all here to compete In Character, in one way or another. It could be physical confrontations, political backstabbing, power plays, power struggles, romance, renown, infamy or any number of other motivations." Fengshui turns his palm upward and flicks an eyebrow up, "Does that mean we compete Out of Character? No. Does that mean that whatever bleed we feel about something that happened to us In Character should change how we feel about a member of the community Out of Character? No." Fengshui makes eye contact with a few members of the crowd and says, "Take a look around. Not at the stage but at the people sitting to your right and to your left. The ones in front of you and behind you. This is your community. Your family, even." Fengshui chuckles and says, "Communities have issues, families fight. It happens. However, when you approach the situation from a perspective of Cooperative Competition, that being We cooperate Out of Character so we can better compete In Character, it can change your perspective on the interactions you want to provide and receive from your fellow community members." Fengshui chuckles again and says, "Lets leave the hostility In Character. Treat your fellow community members with respect, lead by example, be above the fray if something does come up, and reach out to an Admin if you feel like an OOC situation is becoming unmanageable on OOC chat, the BGBB or in some other medium of communication." Fengshui motions to the crowd again, "Harmony Out of Character, Discord In Character." Fengshui hooks his thumb at his chest and says, "If you want to discuss this concept with me, be it an idea you have or a critique, lets talk after the meeting." Fengshui claps his hands and says, "Now, time for discussion! Feel free to follow along with the Agenda. We will start with Red. The State of the Mix. Who would like to open up our discussion? Raise your hands, the queue will form, youll be notified when its your turn to speak. Stand up when youre talking, sit down to let us know you are done." Kenji raises his hand. Buddha rises from the plush leather seat that her rests on the stage. Vincent raises his hand Buddha steps up to the podium and adjusts the micropohone. Buddha says loudly, "*speaking english, in a calm voice* Kenji." Kenji stands from their seat in the first row and easily moves away from it. Fengshui says loudly, "You can ask questions, you can state opinions." Fengshui casually nods at Kenji. OC: Linekin says, "order please, thank you for raising hands and waiting turns."] Izzy raises both her hands at the same time. Siken raises hand. OC: Seven says, "have your comments ready please, unless you happen to be the first person"] OC: Linekin says, "continue holding emotes and unqueued comments for the applause breaks."] Linekin listens to Kenji. OC: Manuel asks, "what's our progress for the spotify playlist?"] You raise a hand. XHELP Buddha [responding to you]: Your position in the queue is noted. Please have your question ready for when you're called on. Kenji says loudly, "*speaking english, in a thickly Japanese accented voice* I just wanted to say that in my short time here, I have found the mix to be horribly unfair. It's a dirty, ugly place full of favorites and favored, and everyone is constantly standing on each other hands in order to get ahead. The result is an experience that is both incredibly frustrating, and incredibly rewarding. I wouldn't change that aspect if I could, and thank you for showing us a different way to think about the idea of personal success in regards to games. It's refreshing to move away from the idea of numbers representing status, and to status representing status. Well done, and thank you." OC: Atlas says, "Questions you have that do not apply to the forum can be asked over xhelp please."] Kenji walks around the front of the rows of seats and picks one out to sit in, and lowers theirself into it. Buddha respectfully bows to Kenji. Buddha says loudly, "Vincent." Linekin [to Kenji]: thank you for that. For appreciating the theme. Jinx exclaims loudly, "*speaking english* Thansk!" Fengshui OOCly shouts, "Killing in the name of will start in 1.30 minutes from now." Vincent says, "*speaking english* You said that item availability in the game is monitored, does this monitoring take into effect items that are tucked away in secure locations? Also on regards to items, why are items in store so haphazard and random? Seems like all stores in the red are pawnshops with their wide variety of items and less specialized." Linekin [to Vincent]: yes. Jinx chuckles softly. Buddha asks loudly, "It sounds like this is more of an IC question?" Jinx says loudly, "Longer answer is yes. We have different levels of monitoring..." Fengshui OOCly shouts, "Killing in the name of will starting now." Buddha looks back at the other admin. Linekin says, "It's okay to OOCly say, Pawnshops are entirely player driven. Non-pawn stores are automated, deal ICly with their stock :)" Jinx says loudly, "So that allows us to know how many are where in grouped situations. Stashed, on shelves, with players, etc..." Fengshui says loudly, "Each store that isn't player run has a set of items they stock. Some stores carry a lot of different stuff because we have no need to have specialized stores for each type of item." Linekin listens to Jinx. Vincent asks, "is there any plans to inject automated income into the economy for when 50 people aren't on?" Johnny says loudly, "*speaking english, in a clear, distinguished baritone voice* And we try to split 'item pairs' when we think about it, so if you bought something and it needs something us to do what it does, you generally have to go somewhere else to complete the set." Jinx casually nods at Johnny. Jinx says loudly, "Also we're adding stores to split stocks where possible." OC: Linekin says, "order please, we're still dealing with one questiuon."] Fengshui says loudly, "There are many 'automated' ways to earn a living. Especially topside. The mix is more RP driven, but there are jobs you can earn an income at without doing crates and such. Bodyguard, bartender, bouncer, to name a few." Johnny says loudly, "There is more than enough automated income systems to support max payout weekly." Vincent says, "Max payout doesn't seem very high" Buddha says loudly, "Thank you, Vincent." Buddha says loudly, "Izzy." Vincent nods casually. Izzy stands from their seat in the fourth row, and edges their way out of it into the aisle. Izzy clears her throat, puffing up her chest proudly. "I think one of the biggest issues right now, from my limited view point is the big, powerful and rich PC's are not helping the newbie PC's out enough. Now obviously one shouldn't go out of character and be nice for no reason if your character's a dick or racist to the immy's race, but I feel there are times when people just used NPC's because it's simpler, or perhaps don't use a newbie's services because they have a friend who might as well do it, even if it's simple things such as moving crates around. We need our newbies to be in the plots too guys! However, this is just my view, perhaps I'm not seeing the bigger view." she shrugs, picking at a nail boredly as she installs a brain hijacker onto Johnny, not thinking anyone was looking. Zinna raises a hand. Izzy sits cross-legged on the floor. Izzy stands up from the floor. Izzy edges into the fourth row, and picks a seat and lowers theirself into it. Buddha gestures to jinx Fengshui says loudly, "After Zinna we will be moving on to the next topic." OC: Linekin says, "Zinna's the last questioner in this section of the meeting"] Johnny says loudly, "If you could make more than you needed without RP, some players would chose to do that instead of get out and RP and that hurts the community." Izzy nods casually. Jinx says loudly, "Well... Rich and powerful PCs need to act their position. My proposal to them is to hire people to do whatever they don't want to do..." Fengshui nods casually. Izzy says, "My point exactly, thankyou! :)" Leon nods in agreement. Buddha says loudly, "Thank you Izzy." Buddha says loudly, "Siken." Jinx says loudly, "We can nudge people into using their money to move things, but we can't force them." Izzy gives Buddha a cheesy thumbs up. Jinx casually nods at Siken. Siken stands up from the floor. Siken sprouts out beautiful butterfly wings which allow a graceful lift off the floor. Buddha eyes Siken warily. Leon giggles playfully. Jinx incredulously rolls his eyes at Siken. Siken asks, "How do I get outta this chickshit outfit?" Buddha says loudly, "I'll field this one." Vincent blinks his eyes rapidly. Buddha says loudly, "Be brave. Rise to power." Kenji laughs loudly. Siken says, "No, but really." OC: Linekin asks, "all joking aside, is there a question?"] Eddie chortles lightly. Buddha says loudly, "We're a little pressed for time, so please move along quickly." OC: Linekin says, "there's a lot on the agenda. Thanks for flowing smoothly and quickly."] OC: Atlas says, "We are running on borrowed time so, let's get right to the questions please. Have your questions ready."] Siken asks, "Yes. Have we taken any steps in not allowing idiot players like we had recently spamming forums/xgame?" Jinx asks loudly, "You're having layering issues?" Buddha eyes Jinx warily. Buddha gestures to Johnny. Fengshui looks to Johnny and Linekin, "Do we have an answer to that?" Jinx [to Siken]: Yes. It is an access issue. Siken nods casually. Siken sits cross-legged on the floor. Buddha says loudly, "Thank you Siken." Siken says, "Thank ya." Johnny says loudly, "I've got some code changes cooking for the BgBB, but they're not ready yet." Buddha says loudly, "Goodman." Buddha says loudly, "Then Zinna, then we're moving on." Linekin listens to Goodman. Jinx says loudly, "We need admin with the right access to manually do it for now." Johnny says loudly, "Asshats will come and go" Zinna stands from their seat in the first row and easily moves away from it. Jinx casually nods at Johnny. Zinna says, "I've had a couple of cases where I saw something by its model number only. One of these times, I couldn't see the description for what it was, because I was viewing it from another room without a command to pull up the description. Is there any plans to give more descriptive names to things such as weapons? A good example of why this is important is when I saw Jinx's minigun, I didn't have to look closer at it just to realize "Oh shit, minigun"." Glitch nods casually. Zinna sits cross-legged on the floor. Zinna stands up from the floor. Zinna walks around the front of the rows of seats and picks one out to sit in, and lowers theirself into it. Jinx grins mischievously. Atlas [to Zinna]: Do you mean via a screen? Jinx says loudly, "It is a double edged issue..." Zinna [to Atlas]: The specific case was through a door's peephole. Linekin says, "Be free to ask about specific items, so we know which might be serious concerns." Linekin says, "We might update them, we might not, case by case." Jinx says loudly, "If we rename everything to say what it is, you won't look at it to get to know it...." Johnny says loudly, "I take the naming of items very seriously." Johnny says loudly, "I recognize that many times the name is sole thing you have" Jinx casually nods at Johnny. Syona appears out of nowhere. Johnny says loudly, "I want to be reasonably easy to determine the general use of a thing between the name, the examine." Armstrong rests back in his chair. Vincent whispers, "*something unintelligible*" to Syona. Goobai raises his hand. Johnny says loudly, "At the same time, we have to keep them succinct" Johnny says loudly, "So we do our best to balance." Jinx nods casually. Syona edges into the fourth row, and picks a seat and lowers theirself into it. Buddha asks loudly, "Sorry for the order mixup, did you have a question Goodman?" Fengshui says loudly, "Seems AFK." Fengshui says loudly, "Moving on." OC: Goobai says, "I think that's me so I'm just gonna stand"] Buddha says loudly, "Going once." You [to Buddha]: I'm good. Thanks OC: Goobai exclaims, "oh nvm!"] Buddha says loudly, "All right." XHELP Linekin [responding to you]: missing your question turn Fengshui says loudly, "Alright, Topside topics." Leon raises his hand. Buddha gestures to Fengshui, "We will be moving to the next topic." Fengshui says loudly, "Good things with corps. Bad things with corps. Etc." XHELP Your message has been sent. XHELP Linekin [responding to you]: okay, I see. Thanks Fengshui says loudly, "Raise your hand to weigh in." Manuel raises his hand. XHELP Linekin [responding to you]: we thought you were afk Leon raises his hand. Vincent raises his hand. Buddha says loudly, "Manuel." XHELP Atlas [responding to you]: It's alright. We can edit it as well. Don't worry about asking questions. OC: Linekin says, "Leon, then Vincent"] Jinx raises his hand Manuel asks, "When will cred chips be -mandatory- to purchase things besides perhaps Blue-side?" OC: Linekin says, "SOrry. Manuel."] XHELP Your message has been sent. OC: Manuel says, "oh"] OC: Linekin says, "whoever Buddha says"] Mordith stands from their seat in the third row, and edges their way out of it into the aisle. Zinna raises her hand. Jinx says loudly, "Not all stores will demand cred-chip only" Manuel nods casually. Buddha says loudly, "Thank you Manuel." Buddha says loudly, "Leon." Jinx says loudly, "But most DO charge more for chy transactions." Manuel sits back down. Leon stands up. Ray's body goes limp as he slumps to the ground unconscious. Ray hauls himself to his feet, rubbing his eyes. Ray edges into the sixth row, and picks a seat and lowers theirself into it. Karma appears out of nowhere. Buddha asks loudly, "Leon?" Leon says, "I would first like to speak for a lot of the blind players, who I think most will agree with me. I appreciate the lengths you've made for accessibility. I don't think I've had it any easier or more difficult than any sighted player. Now on to my question." Karma blinks her eyes rapidly. Jinx gives both thumbs up Leon asks, "Is there any plans for more inter corp conflict, and or development. Also I have one more question. Is there plans on having things hardware wise breakdown. security systems gear maintenance. to get players in that sort of field moving around more in it?" Karma edges into the fourth row, and picks a seat and lowers theirself into it. Linekin rises from the plush leather seat that his rests on the stage. Buddha gestures to Linekin. Linekin [to Leon]: First question first. Sometimes there are GM-run world-plots pitting corporate faction against corporate faction. Leon bobs his head. Fengshui OOCly shouts, "about 2 minutes into new brave in the spotify playlist http://sindo.me/m6kQQK" Linekin [to Leon]: Other times, players all by themselves organize these conflicts. Linekin [to Leon]: We do have plans and monitor all the time to stimulate this kind of themely plot. Linekin [to Leon]: Regarding security stuff: The demand for that kind of service/gear is kind of volume limited. We don't set up busywork for players just because they invested their characters in it. However a character can get VERY creative at creating demand. Matt appears out of nowhere. Linekin exclaims, "This applies to all skills, not just the ones Leon asked about!" Linekin smile. Linekin says, "Next." Linekin walks across the stage and sits upon one of the large leather chairs. Leon says, "thank you" Buddha says loudly, "Vincent." Vincent stands from their seat in the first row and easily moves away from it. Vincent asks, "I'll make this one short, I have heard through both ooc and ic means that certain corp jobs are forbidding folks from coming to Red. While I understand this themely, I feel it takes away from the potential for interaction. As I made comment to a few times, sometimes you can fly around the whole city and not see anyone. I'm pro us running into each other more, not pro us being pidgeonholed away from others. Can this be fixed?" Leon sits back down. Glitch rises from the plush leather seat that his rests on the stage. Vincent says, "Oh and less SIC chatroom, more in person roleplay" Buddha gestures to glitch. Matt edges into the second row, and picks a seat and lowers theirself into it. Linekin pays attention to Glitch. Vincent walks around the front of the rows of seats and picks one out to sit in, and lowers theirself into it. Johnny says loudly, "Nothing wrong with an -IC- prohibition." Catalith stands from their seat in the fourth row, and edges their way out of it into the aisle. Linekin exclaims, "Just don't get *caught*!" Linekin grins. Glitch says loudly, "*speaking english* I will put this simply - the types of roleplay between corpie and mixer should be themely at all times. I understand your point. Always remember any restrictions that might be enforced of any nature by a corporate are IC - as are your reactions, who's to say you have to follow them? " Glitch walks across the stage and sits upon one of the large leather chairs. Jinx rises from the plush leather seat that his rests on the stage. Linekin rises from the plush leather seat that his rests on the stage. Linekin says, "Corpies should be *using* Mixers." Karma raises a hand hesitantly. Linekin walks across the stage and sits upon one of the large leather chairs. Buddha says loudly, "We will be moving on after Karma." Jinx says loudly, "Look. When the NPCs say stuff... You can lie, disobey.... Do your game." Jinx says loudly, "We expect all players to do the following:" OC: Izzy says, "question people pre-type your questions :)"] Jinx counts "Lie, deceit, frame, blackmail, backstab, and any other things that will end benefiting them..." Jinx says loudly, "Corporate characters should use Mixers for expendable pawns..." Jinx says loudly, "you have money, they don't... Promise them pay for shit..." Fengshui says loudly, "Hiding your trips to the mix or hiring mixers for jobs or meeting in weird discreet locations or sneaking into the drome in disguise-- all sound like fun plot points to me." Vincent makes a face at the money comment. Jinx says loudly, "you might not even pay them..." Jinx grins mischievously. Buddha eyes Vincent warily. Buddha says loudly, "Thank you." Linekin rises from the plush leather seat that his rests on the stage. Jinx walks across the stage and sits upon one of the large leather chairs. Buddha turns around, "Jinx, you had a question?" Jinx exclaims loudly, "Yes!" Jinx rises from the plush leather seat that his rests on the stage. Linekin says, "I am making a GM note to stimulate Corpie interpersonal and intercorporate conflict, to give corpie PCs reasons to do all those things Jinx said." Jinx says loudly, "Mine's more of a nudge..." Linekin walks across the stage and sits upon one of the large leather chairs. Connor's body goes limp as he slumps to the ground unconscious. Jinx says loudly, "People said they need more money or more PC to PC contact..." Johnny says loudly, "thats what I created budgets for." Atlas materializes from a sudden swirl of mist and fog. Connor hauls himself to his feet, rubbing his eyes. Jinx says loudly, "Please, get out of your confort zones... And remember what I just said... Lie. Blackmail. Hire others to do your dirty work. Sell yourself to get what you want..." Connor walks around the front of the rows of seats and picks one out to sit in, and lowers theirself into it. Fengshui nods casually. Buddha says loudly, "Thank you Jinx." Jinx says loudly, "You don't need to RP all your online time as working." Jinx nods casually. Jinx walks across the stage and sits upon one of the large leather chairs. Buddha says loudly, "Zinna, then Karma, then we're moving on." Jinx says loudly, "Or moosexing..." Buddha chuckes. Jinx says loudly, "You horny fuckers." Izzy eyes her surroundings warily. Glitch says loudly, "Pay for play obviously." Karma chuckles softly. Leon snickers sarcastically. Fengshui [to Zinna]: Go ahead. Vincent mutters under his breath, "Disgusting moosexers." Johnny asks loudly, "ZINNA UP!?" Zinna stands from their seat in the first row and easily moves away from it. Zinna says, "This one's relevant to the whole game, as much as topside. Are there any plans to draw up faction documentation? Basically files and documents players would get access to upon reaching certain points within a gang/corporation, on the basis of it being information they'd be easily privy to? This could be things like titles and job descriptions in a corporation, or a list of who to talk to for what in a gang." Buddha says loudly, "Start writing." Fengshui steps up to the podium and adjusts the micropohone. Vetsa gives thumbs upsies. Zinna says, "Also, clean green apartment windows. I shouldn't have to walk out in the rain or ask on SIC to find out if it's raining. It's not the Mix. I pay good money for that street view." Zinna sits cross-legged on the floor. Buddha says loudly, "Every player has a wealth of information about their faction that they aren't necessarily writing down and sharing, I would urge you to do so." Vincent laughs loudly at Zinna. Fengshui says loudly, "On the GM side-- yes. On the player side, that takes the mystery out of things. RP is the way to find this stuff out." Fengshui says loudly, "Not documentation." Jinx says loudly, "Information is power." Jinx says loudly, "And money." Fengshui says loudly, "Talk to people, pay for paydata and a GoTo." Linekin rises from the plush leather seat that his rests on the stage. Fengshui says loudly, "Gather rumors and chatter. Ask questions of NPCs. Gridmail people." Linekin says, "Write your character's own goto's and SELL THEM" Linekin walks across the stage and sits upon one of the large leather chairs. Buddha says loudly, "Thank you Zinna." Fengshui says loudly, "Talk to hireups. Offer to buy them a drink. Use whatever means you have access to to gather the information you want and then sell it." Buddha says loudly, "Karma, then we're moving on." Fengshui chuckles softly. Fengshui nods casually. Fengshui steps away from the podium. Karma stands from their seat in the fourth row, and edges their way out of it into the aisle. Fengshui snaps his fingers and says, "Only an hour left and a lot to get through. Have these questions ready people." Karma says, "I noticed that the Super Happy Funland store is closed. Is it going to be that way for a while? Also, with things like ads, are we not doing things like making new vehicles, new ads, etc? I haven't seen a single new ad in my time here." Fengshui [to Karma]: We make ads on demand. Fengshui [to Karma]: They take time and effort. If you want to write a bunch and send them to us, we'll ad them! Karma asks, "so they're ALL player created?" Fengshui motions around and says, "That goes for all of you." Leon nods. Fengshui [to Karma]: Mostly they are admin created, though we have had PCs at NLM making TV commericals in the past. Vincent asks, "Is it something we should just @add-note?" Fengshui says loudly, "E-mail staff @ help@sindome.org" Karma nods casually. Fengshui says loudly, "And xhelp to let us know." Fengshui says loudly, "Okay, moving on. Space and the Badlands." Fengshui asks loudly, "Questions? Comments?" Izzy raises a hand. Buddha says loudly, "Good! Moving on." Izzy sighs quietly. Buddha says loudly, "Oh." Vincent raises his hand Buddha says loudly, "Izzy." Izzy stands from their seat in the fourth row, and edges their way out of it into the aisle. Karma chuckles softly. Syona raises her hand. Izzy asks, "Perhaps we could have more intereaction with NPC's from the badlands coming in? Illegal trading and such?" Leon raises his hand. Fengshui says loudly, "There needs to be a demand for that." Karma raises a hand energetically. Izzy nods casually. Izzy sits cross-legged on the floor. Izzy stands up from the floor. Izzy edges into the fourth row, and picks a seat and lowers theirself into it. Buddha says loudly, "Thank you." Buddha says loudly, "Vincent." Fengshui says loudly, "Find some badlands NPCs in the badlands and make friends or business partners with them. The RP flows from there." Vincent stands from their seat in the first row and easily moves away from it. Vincent says, "Is there any plans to make the badlands more accessable? IE, a group that actively goes out there and kills mutants or whatnot? It's sorta like the burmuda triangle to new folks like me. I know it's weird and scary, but I don't know why the hell I would ever go there." Vincent walks around the front of the rows of seats and picks one out to sit in, and lowers theirself into it. Fengshui says loudly, "The reasons for going out there are.. IC." Fengshui says loudly, "There are things only available out there." Linekin says, "Also, it isn't supposed to be a newbie friendly area." Fengshui says loudly, "There are things on sale out there." Fengshui says loudly, "There are cool things and people to meet." Jinx exclaims loudly, "And MONSTERS!" Atlas says, "*speaking english* Any player could create a group though, that's all RP." Buddha says loudly, "There may or may not be monsters." Johnny says loudly, "You go to places in the badlands, suffer through them. Places can be hard to find, though its easier with the Landmarks code letting you see things from a distance now." Vincent asks, "So it's basically hard mode?" Fengshui says loudly, "And it's purposefully not something that is readily available in terms of info becuase we don't want fresh newbies going out and being killed." Linekin says, "Your character can learn ICly whether and when they're ready to go out there, and why in the world he or she would be motivated to do so." Fengshui says loudly, "Yes." Fengshui says loudly, "It's hard mode." Fengshui says loudly, "And if you want to get a group of people to go out there and explore-- you should." Fengshui says loudly, "Generally speaking of course." Buddha says loudly, "Thank you, Vincent." Buddha says loudly, "Syona." Fengshui says loudly, "Some of my favorite experiences are out there." Fengshui says loudly, "When I knew nothing." Fengshui nods casually. Zinna's body goes limp as she slumps to the ground unconscious. Linekin says, "You see what I'm saying about motivation, right? The character needs to be motivated, no matter what the player thinks." Fengshui [to Syona]: You're up. So says Buddha. Syona says loudly, "Are there any plans to lay out more specifically how people get to and from the Mars colony? I was surprised my history was accepted when I first started because of how I explained my character coming form Mars; Also, are there any plans to expand or talk about Mars in general? I like Mar.s" OC: Syona says, "Mars.* best spelling 2k15"] Buddha says loudly, "And again, please have your questsions typed and ready." Fengshui nods casually. Fengshui [to Syona]: Yes there are. We have some World plot that relates to Mars in the works. Fengshui says loudly, "Can't say anymore than that." Syona dances happily. Buddha says loudly, "Thank you Syona." Fengshui says loudly, "Check the old grid posts for more background on Mars and the Red Suns." Syona sits back down like the respectful woman she is. Buddha says loudly, "Leon." Jinx shouts loudly, "SPACESHIIIIP!" Leon stands up. "I was just wondering about trade from space as well. Is that being developed?" Buddha thwaps Jinx with a cat. Buddha says loudly, "Same answer. Things are being developed. IC."" Linekin says, "Yes it has been and will continue to be. You all know there's new space stuff. Economy wasn't left out of it." Leon nods. "Thank ya." Buddha says loudly, "Karma, and then we are moving on." Johnny says loudly, "There are things available in space today that can't be gotten anywhere else." Leon sits back down. Karma says, "if we do what Izzy said, could we potentially have things like bombings becomming more frequent? People seeking to destroy the dome from within? " Atlas takes a long drag from her lit Stella Nero cigar, exhaling a dark cloud of spicy smoke into the air. Karma says, "jelous type terrorists, that sort of thing" Fengshui says loudly, "Sounds like World Plot, and we have world plot in the works. I'd like to see that type of stuff too." Karma vigorously bounces up and down. Atlas pokes Leon with her sapphire flarelighter. Johnny says loudly, "We had 7/11." Matt's body goes limp as he slumps to the ground unconscious. Matt startles awake with a loud gasp, eyes wide and forehead drenched with sweat. Linekin says, "We had the Font. Twice." Jinx says loudly, "There have been some very nice bombings in the pass." Leon grins Atl. Leon grins mischievously at Atlas. Jinx says loudly, "Past" Karma asks, "yeah, why is 7/11 yearly?" Buddha says loudly, "Thank you Karma. We'll be moving on to the next topic." Linekin says, "It isn't." Karma says, "hu" Karma says, "huh*" Karma nods casually. Fengshui says loudly, "Okay, moving on to Admin / Player interactions. Questions / Comments."s Karma edges into the fourth row, and picks a seat and lowers theirself into it. Vincent raises his hand Buddha says loudly, "Vicnent." Nion raises a hand tentitively. Vincent says, "I think it would be nice if we knew when @notes were being in process and all that. Sometimes it feels like you toss it in and then just sorta hope someone looks at it." Vincent says, "Not that nobody is, just saying the perception is that it's not, cause you just sorta see it sitting there, but you never know." Glitch rises from the plush leather seat that his rests on the stage. Vincent nods casually. Glitch says loudly, "Player notes are read every day. I personally read every single player note every time I log on, and that's pretty much par for the course. You won't be provided update as to what's going on with them, because that's all handled ICly. Player notes -are- very useful to us, and please continue to make appropriate use of them." Glitch walks across the stage and sits upon one of the large leather chairs. Buddha says loudly, "Thank you Vincent." Buddha says loudly, "Nion." The Buddha (average woman wearing a set of silk monk's robes) A lithe woman with long, black hair. Her long, black hair is put up in a tight bun, made fast with a pair of black, laquered decorative chopsticks. Draped about her body are bright yellow silken Buddhist monk robes of a modern, diagonal cut. A big blue splat of paint mares the set of silk monk's robes. Buddha is holding nothing. Buddha is in spectacular condition. Isa appears out of nowhere. Linekin says, "Some player-notes are simply not actionable, and we don't usually inform the player to that effect." Nion warns this is going to be a long one.. Nion clears her throat and looks around, standing on her toes first then her seat to look over the crowded amphitheatre. "It has been said in the past that not as much player on player conflict goes down as might be liked. I'd like to address first, why I think this might be and second, how both players and gms might be able to address this and boost themselves into that adrenalin inducing, intriguing, downright frightening rp they might be looking for." Vincent whispers, "*something unintelligible*" to Isa. Nion stands from their seat in the first row and easily moves away from it. Isa edges into the third row, and picks a seat and lowers theirself into it. Nion pauses a moment and swings on her heels, wobbling a little as the folding seat beneath her teeters precariously. "I think the core issue is these two factors. A. Motivation. B. Confidence. It is a little too easy to survive and get by comfortably on just crate runs and base salaries. It just takes longer to get those luxuries like better armour or weapons rather than prohibiting their access so there is little motivation to risk stealing someone's nice protek jacket when you could just wait and get it risk free. I mean. You could die right?" Linekin listens to Hiro. . o O ( Guy knows what he's talking about. ) Karma raises her hand shyly. Nion continues Greed is an intrinsic part of the theme yes. But some players have a hard time justifying hurting other characters for that nice new jacket or whatever item it is -they- want. For these players I feel it is perhaps important to find something more than themselves to stand for. There is an already existing wealth of groups that hate each others guts... so we can leverage those. Players can join them, let themselves be used by them... the (and this is gm and faction player side) groups can recruit aggressively. Players joining a group like the snakes or the mafia for example immediately adopt their enemies and, just as importantly perhaps, their allies. This gives the character first, motivation to hurt others, and, secondly confidence to act with at least the illusion of a safety net behind them. Nion coughs apologetically. "I really hope this didn't come across as a condescending rant.. Just trying to pass on what I have learned from my own rp." Jinx casually nods at Nion. Linekin says, "Thank you Nion! Well said." Fengshui [to Nion]: Well said. Jinx says loudly, "Clones are cheaper than some other shit..." Jinx says loudly, "Risk and reward..." Buddha says loudly, "Thank you, Nion." Buddha [to Gerik]: Did you have a question or comment? Fengshui says loudly, "Karma will be the last in this section." Jinx says loudly, "We have actively pushed players against each others but that raised "GMs are after me" rants too..." Buddha says loudly, "All right. Karma, then we're moving on." Linekin laughs at Jinx and nods knowingly. Leon smirks. Gerik shakes his head at Buddha and dismissively says, "No." Linekin pays attention to Karma. Fengshui OOCly shouts, "keep in mind that while we are moving fast there will be time for open discussion after the meeting if people want to stick around and chat. but we want to give at least everything on the agenda a bit of attention." Karma asks, "I know for me at least, even after months of being here I'mm still not confident to engage in conflicts which are too heated for my taste. I feel that, as a player who develops a character... well I just spend so much time on writting a profile, and then I get myself into a conflict and get myself killed, that it's all for nothing. Is there some way I can... ease myself int getting used to the conflict side of things?" Fengshui looks over at Atlas. Buddha gesture to atlas. Karma says, "frankly, I get too attached to my character, but I really, really don't like playing characters that are distasteful to me." Fengshui says loudly, "SIC is a safe-ish way to engage in conflict. Change your alias, start a conflict." Karma nods casually. Fengshui [to Atlas]: What would you like to say about this? Zinna hauls herself to her feet, rubbing her eyes. Fengshui says loudly, "Then Jinx." Zinna walks around the front of the rows of seats and picks one out to sit in, and lowers theirself into it. Atlas says, "Conflict doesn't have to mean physical interactions open interactions even and a slow cooked character that develops over time is beautiful." Karma nods casually. Karma asks, "kinda like what I have going on with Ruby then?" Fengshui says loudly, "Play to lose. Don't worry about 'winning'. No one really wins at Sindome. If you aren't familiar with playing to lose, google it. It's nordic or something. Basically, play for compelling RP." OC: Linekin says, "NO IC info here please"] Karma chuckles softly at Fengshui. OC: Karma says, "sorry"] Jinx raises my hand Buddha says loudly, "Jinx" Jinx rises from the plush leather seat that his rests on the stage. Jinx says loudly, "Conflict doesn't mean combat. I've had characters that lasted more than 5 years and were really bad in combat. They schemed, hired others to do their dirty work. Sold fake paydata to get people in bad places and then reap the profits. If you dislike the physical combat, go Palpatine destabilizing the Republic." Jinx grins mischievously. Jinx walks across the stage and sits upon one of the large leather chairs. Izzy applauds politely at Jinx. Eddie laughs maniacally at Jinx. Buddha says loudly, "Thank you, Jinx." Eddie coughs politely. Fengshui says loudly, "I've had characters that lasted 5 hours that I ahd a blast causing conflict with." Jinx winks at Izzy playfully. Buddha says loudly, "And thank you Karma. We'll be moving on." Karma laughs loudly. Jinx casually nods at Fengshui. Fengshui says loudly, "New player retention." Buddha gestures to Fengshui, "Next topic?" Fengshui asks loudly, "Thoughts, ideas, what can we do better? What do we need to do more of?" Vincent raises his hand. Leon raises his hand. You raise a hand. Amon raises his hand. Buddha says loudly, "Vincent." XHELP Buddha [responding to you]: Your position in the queue is noted. Please have your question ready for when you're called on. Karma raises a hand. Willheim raises a hand. Evelyn raises her hand hesitantly. Vincent says, "As I said before, Look for reasons to help them, not reasons to tell them no. You guys sometimes are too quick to find the one reason you can say no, than the five you can say yes to." Fengshui says loudly, "Popular topic." Vincent says, "That's all" Fengshui casually nods at Proxy. Fengshui casually nods at Vincent. Jinx chuckles softly. Buddha says loudly, "Thank you." Buddha says loudly, "Leon." Leon stands. Izzy raises a hand. Jinx rises from the plush leather seat that his rests on the stage. Jinx sits cross-legged on the floor. Jinx stands up from the floor. Jinx walks across the stage and sits upon one of the large leather chairs. Fengshui says loudly, "After Izzy this conversation will move to the BGBB." OC: Linekin says, "izzy will be last on this subject, thank you"] Fengshui snaps his fingers and says, "Get them ready guys, we got a lot of people in line." Fengshui says loudly, "Rapid fire." You stand from your seat in the third row, and edge your way out of it into the aisle. You say loudly, "When there's a thread on the BGBB or something soliciting for thoughts from new players, for fuck's sake, respect what they have the courage to post. I hate seeing threads full of established players coming in and saying 'when I was new...'. It's not valid. My two chy." You edge into the third row, and pick a seat and lower yourself into it. Leon says, "I find that interacting with newbies. whether it's positive or negative. Works the best. Give them a reason to look outside of shi and crates, like vincent said. Especially topsiders. They have chyen to spend so throw it at people for stupid stuff if you have to. It helps to show you interact and there's profit." Buddha says loudly, "Thank you Goodman." Buddha says loudly, "And thank you, Leon." Leon sits back down. Buddha says loudly, "Amon." Jinx nods casually. Evelyn's body goes limp as she slumps to the ground unconscious. Amon says, "I feel like the expetience for new players can be fruatrating, specially since you start with no skills. If you have IC background with expetience, you feel blocked. When I joined SD I was told I could be a law enforcer, but I noticed I needed months of experience and playing time first. I love RPing be it a junkie or whatever else, so it didnt matter very much, but I wanted to point this out." Fengshui casually nods at Amon. Fengshui [to Amon]: Thank you. Buddha says loudly, "Thank you, Amon." Johnny says loudly, "*speaking english, in a clear, distinguished baritone voice* Law enforcement doesn't start with a badge." Johnny says loudly, "It starts with the basics of bodyguarding." Buddha says loudly, "Willheim." Johnny says loudly, "Then maybe bouncer." Willheim stands to his feet unsteadily. "*speaking english, in a low, mildly mid-western accented voice* I think that, generally, things are done fairly well to keep people hooked from the get-go. People are tossed into the dome with no knowledge, into a big city full of dancing lights and strutting gangers. It's horribly confusing, as it should be. But, for those not too experienced with RP like myself, finding meaningful RP seems to be a difficult thing. Like, you can always find someone to chat with over SIC or in a bar, but it seems to be hard for new characters to find the paths they want their characters to walk. At least for a while. I'm not certain how that could be fixed, but that's just my experience." Johnny says loudly, "Then maybe building security" Johnny says loudly, "Then maybe a rent-a-cop" Johnny says loudly, "Then maybe, maybe, if you're still alive, a cadet judge." Willheim sits back down. Fengshui asks loudly, "You guys know it's possible to ask a bartender, like Rychek: Where's the party at?" Buddha says loudly, "Thank you, Willheim." Buddha asks loudly, "Izzy?" Fengshui asks loudly, "And he will tell you where there are large gatherings of players in public places?" Izzy stands from their seat in the fourth row, and edges their way out of it into the aisle. Izzy says, "Personally I think xgame has been pretty damn rude and/or unhelpful, with just people having help files/that's IC info etc etc Even if this IS all we can get to tell them, we can be polite about it, we're just bashing on newbies simply because they don't know what we learnt. For example we could give newbies advice such as 'decker is usually a hard job to start your first char with' or 'it's IC, but you'd probably find info like that on a computer terminal of some sort' It just seems... very hostile to me." Izzy edges into the fourth row, and picks a seat and lowers theirself into it. Jinx raises my hand Evelyn hauls herself to her feet, rubbing her eyes. Evelyn edges into the second row, and picks a seat and lowers theirself into it. Buddha says loudly, "I want to comment on that as well." Buddha says loudly, "Terse does not mean rude." Linekin rises from the plush leather seat that his rests on the stage. Linekin says, "Me too, I have a comment." Jinx says loudly, "I can go last." Buddha says loudly, "There's a difference between, "I'd love for you to read this help file", "see help file", and "see help file, baka"" Buddha asks loudly, "Jinx, you had a comment?" Fengshui says loudly, "Sometimes 'It's IC' really is the only answer. It's a method of teaching. It shows people from the start that they need to learn this info themselves, that it won't be handed to them." Linekin says, "We should be teaching to fish, not giving fish. Especially when we cannot give the fish because of the @rules." Johnny says loudly, "Anything you can read under the website's Lore section is fair game for something you can just tell them." Linekin walks across the stage and sits upon one of the large leather chairs. Linekin casually nods at Jinx. Fengshui says loudly, "Fair enough." Omara raises hand. Fengshui says loudly, "Link to help files, lore files, etc." Buddha says loudly, "But thank you, Izzy." Izzy nods casually. Izzy stands from their seat in the fourth row, and edges their way out of it into the aisle. Buddha asks loudly, "Evelyn, you had a question?" Evelyn stands from their seat in the second row, and edges their way out of it into the aisle. Fengshui exclaims loudly, "And gosh darnit, read all that stuff yourselves too!" Izzy says, "I just think we've scared some new players off, is all." Izzy edges into the fourth row, and picks a seat and lowers theirself into it. Jinx rises from the plush leather seat that his rests on the stage. Jinx says loudly, "People... we're seeing a lot of high expectations that can't be met out of chargen." Fengshui [to Izzy]: Thank you for the feedback, we will be more aware, as a player base because of it. Evelyn asks, "Yes, thank you for your time. Just a really quick question. It was mentioned earlier about combat messages. Whether to shorten it, or lengthen it. I was just wondering, if there was a way to make it an option? Like a display thing, so players can switch between longer and shorter combat messages? Unless that's already in place?" Mordith appears out of nowhere. Mordith edges into the third row, and picks a seat and lowers theirself into it. Jinx says loudly, "The game is all about the path to your expectation." Jinx says loudly, "You can't go from immigrant to Judge in a week." Fengshui [to Evelyn]: That would involve writing even more sets of messages in an already lengthly process so I don't see that happening. Buddha says loudly, "We're going to hear briefly from Omara, then move on." Buddha says loudly, "Thank you, Evelyn." Omara stands from their seat in the sixth row, and edges their way out of it into the aisle. Evelyn edges into the second row, and picks a seat and lowers theirself into it. Fengshui [to Evelyn]: We will just standardize on a type of message that is clear, concise and bad ass. Jinx says loudly, "You can't go from Immy to TV star either..." Evelyn smiles. Karma blinks her eyes rapidly. Evelyn [to Fengshui]: to feng I figured as much, but I thought I'd just plant the seed and ask anyways. Omara says, "As to xgame and commands help. I think we could all improve slightly by not just giving the command as an answer. For example, 'count'. Also give -why- / -where- that command comes from, e.g. examine. So we give them not just the -answer- but the means of finding that answer again in the future." Johnny says loudly, "What we've done is with the @access for Combat Labels, you can put a consistent message at the front indicating what happened roughly and the rest of the detail is there for you if you want." Jinx says loudly, "This is a game about the path your characters take to get what they want. Be it a jacket or a job." Omara edges into the sixth row, and picks a seat and lowers theirself into it. Jinx sits cross-legged on the floor. Jinx stands up from the floor. Buddha says loudly, "Thank you, Omara." Jinx walks across the stage and sits upon one of the large leather chairs. Buddha [to Fengshui]: Next topic? Karma says, "wait" Buddha eyes Karma warily. Karma says, "I think I got skipped." Leon says, "I actually would like to add some to that as well if we have time." Fengshui says loudly, "Let's continue for a few minutes." Buddha says loudly, "Terribly sorry." Buddha says loudly, "So you did." Buddha says loudly, "Karma." Fengshui says loudly, "This is a hot topic and we are actually now on schedule." Karma [to Buddha]: all good Karma says, "I've been watching stuff happen on xgame and xooc, and I feel like there needs to be some kind of automatic indication that, the xgamechannel is for help purposes only, and xooc is for general chatter. A And I just thought it might be a good idea to help expand the blind presence here. I might review the MOO when I get my TMC account up and running again, because I'm just one individual. Other blind folks might have things to say that I've missed. It seems to me that, although bringing in more blind players might generate more complaints, it's the best way to iron things out, if you have blind players all over the place, instead of two or three inching through the game. " Johnny says loudly, "I think there are at least 4 of you now." Karma says, "also, if there isn't already, I feel like there should be asomething on the website that says, this is a good starter role for a newbie, or this is more a role for experienced players only" Vincent holds up his beer and say, "Fuck yeah!" to Karma's comment. Karma blinks at Proxy rapidly. Karma says, "er" Jinx adds street bum to the list... Johnny says loudly, "We have some significant changes to make on the website for the archetypes and thats a good suggestion about starting or experienced roles, I'll include that." Karma asks, "why are some details about certain character types missing?" Johnny says loudly, "We've nearly got artwork for each one. Once its ready, they'll be getting a weekend of code." Johnny [to Karma]: for example/ Karma says, "I remember going through @ideas, and some of them didn't even have anything written down" Johnny says loudly, "That sounds like a bug." Linekin says, "Anyone who wants to help complete the archetype material, we'd welcome it. Mail them to help@sindome.org and we'll put them on the website. It's not a bug, it's missing content." Karma says, "I looked on the website one day and I saw the same issue." Fengshui says loudly, "I would like to at least label archetypes with 'amount of time needed to be successful' and 'roleplay experienced required to be successful'" Karma casually nods at Fengshui. Buddha says loudly, "Thank you, Karma." Syona starts writing some archetypes and information down excitedly. Vincent adds quickly, "Maybe something like a realistic timeline of RL time in game would be nice too." Buddha turns to Linekin, "Did you want to comment on something?" Johnny says loudly, "Everything in Sindome takes time." Karma [to Fengshui]: yeah, I feel that's important. As it was said, you can't go from being a nobody to being a street judge in a week. I feel there should be given a general time window about this is how long it takes on average to reach this goa Karma says, "goal" Johnny asks loudly, "If we advertised that, does that sound attractive?" Linekin rises from the plush leather seat that his rests on the stage. Fengshui says loudly, "Okay, I am going to call this-- we need to move on to Problem Players." Linekin casually nods at Buddha. Leon nods casually. Jinx says loudly, "More than a month on everything should be a baseline" Linekin casually nods at Fengshui. Karma nods casually. Linekin [to Fengshui]: On that subject: Atlas says, "We aren't going to make someone a Judge just because they login and make a half assed attempt at communication for 3 months." Vincent raises his hand. Karma casually nods at Atlas. Linekin says loudly, "I don't even want to spend time on discussing problem players, other than to say to all players, 'we deal, please help by not antagonizing them and feeding their trollery'. That's the most effective way to end their abuse." Buddha calls for silence. Fengshui nods casually. Jinx suspends their asses Buddha says loudly, "With extreme prejudice." Linekin walks across the stage and sits upon one of the large leather chairs. Buddha [to Vincent]: Did you wish to comment? Karma raises her hand. Johnny says loudly, "Linekin's comment was not meant to silence anyone else from commenting." Vincent says, "I was just thinking that it would be a good roleplay idea if for those high end roles like Judges, you guys instituted an official path. Instead of saying, just be a security guard etc." Linekin nods casually. Vincent says, "Like Judge Academy or someshit." Jinx says loudly, "That is already in the game..." Buddha [to Vincent]: Thank you, but you've kind of missed the boat. Fengshui says loudly, "It's called TERRA." Johnny [to Vincent]: did I not mention Cadet Judge? Syona laughs. Linekin [to Vincent]: Just because you haven't seen it... Fengshui says loudly, "And RP hehe." Buddha says loudly, "Thank you, Vincent." Vincent says, "Oh no, I'm not saying you guys" Connor eyes his surroundings warily. Buddha says loudly, "Karma." Vincent says, "I'm saying in game" Vincent says, "Everyone always just points new people to security guard jobs, point them to the actual job" Jinx says loudly, "Basically, if you want to be a high position in any place, you'll start low and work your way up." Karma says, "I feel like this is an area we have to be careful on. It's shaky ground. Anger the wrong newbie and you might see a negative review on TMC all of a sudden, keeping our numbers down. In that case we probably would have to disable review submissions." Fengshui says loudly, "Information on that and basically any subject is available to those that ask. Ask around, pay for info, rp for info, do favors for info etc." Atlas says, "I want all of you to realize we aren't handing you what you want on silvet platters. We want you to RP and find your answers." Linekin http://sindo.me/m6ptzb Karma blinks at Linekin rapidly. Fengshui says loudly, "We've never shyed away from negative reviews. They happen. People get pissed, don't like us for whatever reason." Johnny [to Vincent]: newbies can not be a judge because they don't have one bit of clue how to play them, hence the need to work into it. Fengshui says loudly, "Okay, we need to move on from this subject but if anyone wants to open a thread on the BGBB on this-- I will happily contribute." You raise a hand. You say loudly, "oh. nvm." Buddha says loudly, "Quick comment from Goodman." Fengshui [to You]: Go ahead, last one. You smile, "Thanks, but I've got a lot to say on this. Will wait." Buddha says loudly, "All right, moving on." Fengshui says loudly, "Code Changes / COde Questions / Code whatever." Fengshui says loudly, "Questions on the Matrix or Drones? First three people then we move on." Vincent raises his hand. Linekin rises from the plush leather seat that his rests on the stage. Syona raises her hand. Buddha says loudly, "Vincent." Cheech grins. Karma asks, "drones?" OC: Linekin says, "in turn please"] Buddha eyes Karma warily. Vincent says, "Is it possible to get the game to recognize synonyms to words. I constantly get tripped up with push versus press" Linekin nods casually. Vincent says, "Some things do either" Vincent says, "Some only do push" Nion walks around the front of the rows of seats and picks one out to sit in, and lowers theirself into it. Linekin says loudly, "*speaking english, in a salty voice* It's possible in some places, not others. Post these as ideas, we can see about it." Buddha says loudly, "Thank you." Buddha says loudly, "Syona." Vincent nods casually. Ray's body goes limp as he slumps to the ground unconscious. Linekin says loudly, "http://sindo.me/mngPfw" Fengshui says loudly, "This is technically the matrix / drones section" Matt's body goes limp as he slumps to the ground unconscious. Matt startles awake with a loud gasp, eyes wide and forehead drenched with sweat. Fengshui says loudly, "There are a bunch of other code sections and we have 18 minutes so we are moving fast." Johnny says loudly, "Sometimes the synonyms are used for different functionality, ala, load vs install" Johnny asks loudly, "next q?" Syona asks loudly, "Is the Matrix currently in development? Have you considered being able to use it to control things like security cameras in person, either via some chrome device or otherwise (I believe someone mentioned it on the forums). What is the plan to get current deckers to the new system? Will the new Matrix affect gameplay strongly enough to make it worth players spending money to get services from deckers?" Buddha says loudly, "Syona is typing." Syona bows in apology for being slow. Mordith's body goes limp as he slumps to the ground unconscious. Johnny says loudly, "yes, yes, current deckers would be the ones working on the new system, yes, deckers need RP jobs too." Mordith hauls himself to his feet, rubbing his eyes. Mordith edges into the third row, and picks a seat and lowers theirself into it. Buddha says loudly, "*speaking english, in a calm voice* Thank you." Buddha asks loudly, "Karma?" Fengshui OOCly shouts, "40 seconds into Haunted by Shirk in the Playlist" Jp's body goes limp as she slumps to the ground unconscious. Karma blinks at Buddha rapidly. Buddha asks loudly, "Did you have a question or comment?" Karma asks, "I've never heard of drones before. What are they or do I find out IC?" Linekin says loudly, "They're remotely controlled things. Beyond that, find out IC" Fengshui says loudly, "*speaking english, in an a stereotypically asian voice* Eyepods are drones, as an example." Johnny says loudly, "A Drone in SD speak will refer to a controllable, flying, spy drone thing." Karma nods and chuckles. Buddha says loudly, "Thank you, Karma." Buddha turn to Fengshui. Johnny says loudly, "Its like a robot, but has no moving parts outside of its propulsion system" Jinx says loudly, "*speaking english* Drones are used to take naked pics of people and other paparazzi shit." Izzy [to Karma]: They're flying around in Gold, literally. Johnny says loudly, "All robots including drones will "come apart" like vehicles do." Karma blinks at Izzy rapidly. Leon says, "*speaking english, in a soft lilting Irish accented voice* niiiice." Karma says, "never noticed" Fengshui shouts loudly, "OKAY, GRAPPLE GRIPES. NO QUEUE FOR THIS, JUST SAY YOUR ISSUE WITH GRAPPLE IF YOU HAVE ONE. IF YOU HAVE A QUESTION, SAY THAT TOO." Matt laughs loudly. Fengshui snaps his fingers and says, "And... go." Vincent says, "Seems immensely overpowering." Izzy shouts loudly, "IF YOU HAVE MORE STRENGTH THAN THE OTHER PERSON AND HIS A GRAPPLE, IS INSTANTLY OP" Linekin exclaims loudly, "I should be able to evade grapple with agility and skill!" Vetsa laughs loudly. Willheim shouts loudly, "BOY GRAPPLE NEEDS A REWORK OF THE MECHANICS BEHIND IT I'VE HEARD ARE CORRECT" Siken says, "*speaking english, in a deep, basstone voice* I can't find my pants." Fengshui [to Linekin]: You can. Syona shouts loudly, "IT'S ALMOST AS BAD AS THE AGILITY BULLSHIT" Linekin grins mischievously. Nion raies a hand. Linekin exclaims loudly, "Good!" Leon asks, "can I at least slap someone like a sissy please?" You say loudly, "I want to be able to grapple Dogs ICly. No, just kidding. Grapple has been an issue as long as I've been playing, let's just move on already." Izzy shouts loudly, "YOU SHOULD BE ABLE TO ATTACK IN A GRAPPLE, KNEE THEIR STOMACH, BITE THEIR HANDS." Salafan asks, "*speaking english, in a soft, girly and slightly French accented voice* Could we have a diff between grapple and poteintially carrying someone?" Johnny chuckles softly. Kenji says loudly, "*speaking english, in a thickly Japanese accented voice* God damnit it's WAY overpowered. It's too easy for someone do get you into it, and it's impossible to get out of it, even with very high stats." Evelyn exclaims, "Agreed! You have to grapple if you want to carry them. It's overkill!" Zinna shouts loudly, "*speaking english* I KEEP FORGETTING HOW TO STRUGGLE AGAINST A GRAPPLE!" Fengshui [to Izzy]: Defeats the point of grapple as a coded means of restraint. that's what resist is. Willheim shouts loudly, "YOU HIT 'RESIST' ZINNA, I THINK" Matt shouts loudly, "*speaking english, in a casual, exhausted American voice* WE NEED AN ANTI GRAPPLE LUBE ITEM!!!" Fengshui [to Kenji]: Look into martial arts or brawling, raise your strength, agility or perception. take drugs. Leon [to Matt]: you, make me.....proud. Zinna shouts loudly, "WE NEED ASTROGLIDE!" Vetsa shouts loudly, "*speaking english, in a silvery and enigmatic, slightly accented voice* GRAPPLE IS EASYMODE FOR WEIGHTLIFTERS! WE NEED CYBERWARE THAT TURNS YOUR BODY INTO A TASER!" Evelyn says, "No, I just wish there was a code for carrying people. If you like want to move them. Because a grapple just seems overkill." Amon says, "We need spike armors." You say loudly, "There should be a coded mooxsex chokeout verb so I can stop killing people by accident in a grapple" Kenji says loudly, "Supposedly non-combat NPCs can do it to combat PCs and win the fight that way. And they do." Matt beams proudly Fengshui [to Vetsa]: That is a good idea. Kenji says loudly, "It's a cheat." Vincent appliesses lube liberally to his body. Vetsa wants to be electric. Syona laughs at you. Zinna says, "OH my god. I love Vesta's option." Evelyn chuckles softly at Goodman. Leon giggles playfully. Fengshui [to Vetsa]: Really. Vetsa [to Fengshui]: Make me a taser bro! Mordith laughs loudly. Izzy [to Fengshui]: I think it's a good idea. Mordith exclaims, "*speaking english, in a slight accent voice* Don't tase me bro!" Izzy says, "But I'd be biased to anything chrome." Kenji says loudly, "They negate all fighting skill that way, and no amount of stats or skills seems to get you out." Zinna [to Fengshui]: Full support for taser chrome. You sing loudly, "electric feel" Leon says, "oh my god I look small but just try and touch me, fucker." Nion sighs quietly. Vincent exclaims, "Dues Ex has a taser like ability in his body and he's cyberpunk!" Connor leans slightly forward and licks Leon suggestively. Karma reaches over and compulsively strokes Leon's hair. Willheim asks, "Maybe a distinction between grab/grapple? Grab someone is a trustable option to move them (which makes progressing to a grapple easy) and grappling being aggressive?" Mordith tenderly gives Leon a warm hug. Vetsa exclaims, "Electric neon taser katana gun battle!" Karma dies. Fengshui holds up his hands and says, "Your gripes have been heard and we will look into balancing it better." Salafan exclaims, "Thank you!" Linekin exclaims loudly, "Taser nunchuks!" Nion raises a hand because they would like to explain succintly what it is they dislike about grapple. Fengshui says loudly, "Next topic-- bodyguarding." Vincent exclaims, "Last, serious gripe. It should be illegal to get grappled!" Vincent says, "In non red areas" Fengshui [to Nion]: Make a BGBB post. Nion nods. Evelyn says, "Yes, that'd be awesome! A grab option! Okay sorry, done." Matt says loudly, "But seriously, it's true. Shit we can buy to counter grapples would be great. Spiked armor, lube, and body tasers." Fengshui [to Proxy]: It is, it's assault. Linekin says loudly, "It's already illegal to fight at all in non red areas." Connor nods casually. Connor shouts loudly, "*speaking english, in a soft, heavily accented Irish voice* OBEY THE LAW!" Mordith laughs loudly. Vincent exclaims, "So I could call 911 when someone grapples me! HALP!" Evelyn chuckles softly. Willheim asks, "Is it legal to fight in Red, or do people just not care?" Fengshui casually nods at Proxy. Linekin says loudly, "Why not." Fengshui casually nods at Vincent. Gerik says, "*speaking english, in a deep and masculine voice* Sure. After my donut break." Linekin says loudly, "Laws aren't different, red vs. topside." Matt shouts loudly, "IT'S JUST A HUG!!!" Connor eyes Gerik warily. Mordith tenderly gives Matt a warm hug. Fengshui says loudly, "It's illegal to fight on Red too, just saying." Fengshui chuckles softly. Karma laughs loudly at Syona. Matt's body goes limp as he slumps to the ground unconscious. Vincent asks, "Oh another serious thing... How is grapple turned into choke?" Fengshui says loudly, "Okay-- bodyguarding is the next topic." Fengshui [to Johnny]: Where do we stand with that? Vincent says, "I have been choked and both just manhandled" Vincent asks, "Is one after fighting?" Linekin [to Vincent]: attack after grappling someone. Goobai [to Vincent]: *speaking english, in a level, Mixer-accented voice* Or grapple someone while attacking. Nion thinkses this is becoming a bit chaotic... Fengshui shouts loudly, "CREATE A GRAPPLE THREAD IN IDEAS OR GAME COMPLAINTS. WE ARE MOVING ON TO BODYGUARDING." Johnny says loudly, "well, we got escort working." You raise a hand. Johnny says loudly, "'protect' is next on my short list." Leon raises a hand. Vincent says, "Someone explain escort, cause there is no help escort" Willheim says, "Bodyguarding! A way to just draw attacks when someone tries to attack your charge. That's all." Linekin says, "It's in help movement." Izzy [to Johnny]: If you escort someone and then get seperated, you'll re-escort if you're re-united, just so you know. Johnny says loudly, "When you're in the same room as someone you're protecting, you'll move in front of an incoming close attack" Evelyn says, "may I just say, the escort thing is totally awesome, and I'm glad it got fixed." Fengshui says loudly, "Let's make a note to add an alias for help escort to help movement" Johnny [to Izzy]: yes, that was by design. Izzy casually nods at Johnny. Vincent says, "Yes, but it looks like follow" Fengshui [to Evelyn]: It's new. Vetsa exclaims, "You can cheat the other guy onto a lev for free I think!" Vincent asks, "What's the difference between follow and escort?" Izzy says, "I am slightly worried that no ones gonna use Follow any more now though" Connor eyes Vetsa warily. Vetsa says, "It seems to force them forward with out paying." Linekin says, "Type 'help movement' righ tnow." Johnny [to Vetsa]: thanks for reporting that. Vetsa says, "Just so you know." Izzy eyes Vetsa warily. Vetsa casually nods at Johnny. Siken asks, "So escort is a faster 'follow' essentially?" Izzy casually nods at Siken. Johnny [to Vetsa]: can you @bug that? Siken nods casually. Linekin says, "The escorter moves first, basically." Izzy [to Siken]: A follow where the follower goes first Vincent asks, "I did, it says you move with the other person, requires @trust. But what is the difference?" Vetsa [to Johnny]: Sure. Evelyn [to Siken]: yeah, I mean not by like ages or anything but it makes better. Johnny says loudly, "escort is you walking with them, not following behind them." Vincent says, "Ahh, so instead of move, wait for dude, move, it's move move move" Siken says, "Interesting." Leon says, "it definitely makes it easier, when you're genuinely trying to lead someone somewhere and you don't wnat to get away from them." Izzy [to Siken]: Chuk will be so happy! Evelyn [to Vincent]: Pretty much. the wait for dood part has been taken out. Johnny says loudly, "if you have multiple people escorting you, you'll all move through the exit right at the same time, and your escorts move through first, getting any booby traps." You keep your hand raised. Willheim says, "That sounds less like a way to escort people, and more like just an objectively better follow." Johnny says loudly, "There is an @trust for escort and there wil be one for 'protect' as well." Vincent says, "Yeah, I don't know why anyone would ever use follow." Connor says, "That's good shit." Leon says, "I would be more willing to hire a bodyguard if they were actually guarding me, so that'll be nice." Linekin asks, "Because of non-trust?" Linekin says, "You can't escort someone who doesn't want you to." Izzy eyes Syona warily. Jinx rises from the plush leather seat that his rests on the stage. Jinx levels his ZMI XM196 minigun at Atlas and flicks off the safety, taking careful aim. Linekin eyes Jinx warily. Mordith suddenly gasps! Jinx grins mischievously. Johnny says loudly, "I can follow anyone, permission or not." Jinx lowers his ZMI XM196 minigun and engages the safety. Vincent asks, "So it's @trust dude to escort?" Connor thumbs open the retainer strap on his belt holster. Connor wraps his hand around the butt of the Beretta 9mm held securely in his belt holster and draws it out. Johnny says loudly, "I can 'shadow' anyone too, because shadow is just sneaky follow." Connor [to Jinx]: Come on, bruh. Zinna says, "If you suck at stealth but want to tail someone, follow is the way to go." Izzy reaches down, unlatching her left ankle sheath and flips open the flap. Izzy reaches down to her left ankle sheath and pulls out a stiletto. Izzy thumbs a button on her stiletto, extending the ceramic blade from the hilt with a metallic *snikt*. Izzy flicks the blade around dextrously, reversing to a dagger grip, licking her lips with a grin. Izzy brings a knife to a gunfight! Buddha calls for silence. Willheim thumbs open the retainer strap on his belt holster. Atlas [to Connor]: He will give you diseases. Willheim wraps his hand around the butt of the Beretta 9mm held securely in his belt holster and draws it out. Willheim loads his Beretta 9mm with a 9mm magazine. Fengshui shouts loudly, "OKAY-- WE NEED TO MOVE ON." Izzy pokes Connor with her stiletto. Connor eyes Atlas warily. Manuel absent mindedly pokes and fiddles with his heavy bolo machete. Hekate slides down in her seat nervously. Izzy sighs faintly, eyes turning matte as she flicks the blade into its sheath again with a bored flourish. Izzy thumbs the release on the side of her stiletto, causing the ceramic blade to slide back inside the hilt. Fengshui shouts loudly, "REENABLING GO LIGHT FOR PEOPLE WHO HAVE CLONES." Izzy reaches down and slides her stiletto into her left ankle sheath in one swift motion. Izzy reaches down and snaps her left ankle sheath securely closed. Eddie fiddles with his imaginary rapier. Willheim presses the magazine release on his Beretta 9mm and unloads a 9mm magazine. Willheim slips his Beretta 9mm into his belt holster in one swift motion. Willheim snaps the retainer strap on his belt holster securely closed. Linekin [to Vincent]: for trust syntax, type 'help trust' Fengshui says loudly, "We disabled it because people were going light to kill their characters off prematurely in a way we found game breaking." Buddha says loudly, "I have a comment on this." Connor slips his Beretta 9mm into his belt holster in one swift motion. Connor snaps the retainer strap on his belt holster securely closed. Willheim [to Fengshui]: 'go light?' Izzy says, "A good idea, means if you want to leave a character you don't have to awkwardly double suicide." Fengshui shouts loudly, "GO LIGHT IS WHAT YOU SEE WHEN YOU DIE WITHOUT A CLONE." Buddha says loudly, "I would suggest a twofold change:" Johnny [to Izzy]: it used to be there. Karma raises her hand. Izzy casually nods at Johnny. Buddha says loudly, "Enable go light for people with clones." Fengshui says loudly, "it was a thing, we removed it due to abuse." Zinna raises her hand. Buddha says loudly, "Enable "go clone" for anyone who's ever cloned, cloning from old data." Buddha says loudly, "With a greater chance of CDC." Fengshui says loudly, "That won't be happening." Buddha says loudly, "Karma, comments." Goobai raises his hand. Fengshui says loudly, "That second part anyway. Perma-death is hard enough to accomplish as it is." Atlas says, "I want to comment here. There is nothing more frustrating as an admin than putting time and effort into a character for them to suicide because they aren't getting what they want when they want it." Karma says, "is there a way to skip the whole welcome to death thing and just go light or reclone or whatever or no? I have having to wait 20 minutes for it. Seems a little long of a wait." Willheim raises a hand. Izzy [to Karma]: It's to give doctors a chance to revive you. You raise a hand. Fengshui [to Karma]: That is there for a reason. A cool down period and a chance to let people be cloned from their corpses. Linekin says, "There are reasons cloning isn't instant. For one, it isn't magic." Evelyn raises her hand. Connor leans slightly forward and licks Izzy suggestively. Linekin says, "That's the themely reason." XHELP Buddha [responding to you]: Your position in the queue is noted. Please have your question ready for when you're called on. Johnny says loudly, "*speaking english, in a clear, distinguished baritone voice* That cool down period is important too." Karma nods casually. Vincent exclaims loudly, "This is why I made the comment about @notes updating and letting people know that shit is in process. Then they won't feel so hopeless and jump off a skywalk!" Buddha says loudly, "Thank you Karma." Matt startles awake with a loud gasp, eyes wide and forehead drenched with sweat. Johnny says loudly, "We also block you from using some of the channels during the same time to prevent outbursts of emotion." Buddha calls for silence. Linekin observes a moment of silence. Siken raises hand. Linekin says, "For those who went light." Buddha says loudly, "Zinna." Zinna stands from their seat in the first row and easily moves away from it. Izzy holds a hand to her chest emotionally. Zinna says, "I would like to suggest that using 'go light' with a longer delay than cloning, to ensure the person doesn't opt to perma out of rage. Maybe even require a reason given through an editor. This gives players an opportunity to explain it in advance." Zinna sits cross-legged on the floor. Matt edges into the second row, and picks a seat and lowers theirself into it. Zinna stands up from the floor. Zinna walks around the front of the rows of seats and picks one out to sit in, and lowers theirself into it. Eddie snickers. Buddha says loudly, "Thank you Karma." Buddha says loudly, "erm." Buddha says loudly, "Thank you Zinna." Buddha says loudly, "Goobai." Izzy eyes Buddha warily. Goobai stands from their seat in the sixth row, and edges their way out of it into the aisle. Linekin casually nods at Zinna. Goobai says loudly, "I think it'd be more themely to offer players a chance to delete their clones instead, probably with a hefty charge." Karma nods casually. Goobai says loudly, "Something something blood from a stone." Atlas [to Vincent]: If all notes were marked read then everyone would expect their note to be acted on just because we marked it read. We all read and use player notes. We're not going to tell you/warn you that we're in the process of using one. Goobai edges into the sixth row, and picks a seat and lowers theirself into it. Leon nods in agreement. Buddha says loudly, "Thank you, Goobai." Karma raises her hand. Buddha says loudly, "Willheim."" [-][Game-Help] Bug 'escort lev fare cheat' submitted to Gojira! It will be available at http://gojira.sindome.org/browse/MOO-6038 soon. Willheim says, "Instead of having to double-suicide or something... why not just have a backup deletion button somewhere IC? "I'm jumping off a bridge later, won't be needing this clone."" Buddha says loudly, "We're taking no more comments, I'm afraid, apart from the ones that are in." Vincent vigorously nods at Willheim and says, "Yes." Buddha says loudly, "Thank you, Willheim." Buddha says loudly, "Goodman." Linekin says, "The idea of providing the 'go light' option when there's a clone available has been discussed." Johnny [to Willheim]: so then part of the PK run is faking out the system so it thinks -you- deleted your clone before the hit squad takes you down. Willheim [to Johnny]: Que? You say loudly, "Just a thought. Increase clone prices. Make it harder to have an easy save. Make more than 99% of the player population able to have a clone. Re-activate go light because who wants to deal with unhappy players who clone up just to do some un-IC shit because its their only option. The command isn't saving you players, it's losing you good quality players who are mature enough to take a breather before changing things up. Downside, maybe everybody is a bit more scared IC & OOC of losing characters. Downside, you are going to lose people who have been invested in." Izzy [to Willheim]: If you can delete clones, your enemies will hack it and delete your clone. Matt says loudly, "Please god no" Willheim [to Izzy]: Oh. Yes, and? Izzy [to Willheim]: Well.. that's just dumb as shit. OC: Linekin says, "order and respect"] Buddha says loudly, "Thank you, Goodman." OC: Izzy says, "sorry, my bad."] Buddha says loudly, "Evelyn." Leon blinks at Izzy rapidly. Evelyn stands from their seat in the second row, and edges their way out of it into the aisle. Evelyn says, "My question is, as far as permadeath being hard to accomplish, I agree. But the thing is, what does one do, if they want to reroll? perhaps not because they're not getting what they want, but just because they're tired of their char? If they want to start fresh altogether, instead of vacationing them, is there a nicer way to do it, than say commit suicide, or doing something even more drastic? Because there's not really an easy reroll option." OC: Linekin eyes Izzy. "He's not a noob, but wasn't this the exact behavior you were talking about earlier RE: xgame?"] Fengshui [to Evelyn]: Speak with an admin over xhelp OC: Izzy says, "by 'dumb as shit' I mean the concept of having your character permed in 5 seconds flat by a well time hack and sniper bullet."] OC: Izzy says, "the idea was a good one"] Linekin [to Evelyn]: If someone wants to reroll, who cares how their last character ends? Not them, right? Linekin says, "It's easy as hell if all you want to do is die your character." Buddha says loudly, "Thank you, Evelyn." Buddha says loudly, "Siken." Evelyn edges into the second row, and picks a seat and lowers theirself into it. Siken stands up from the floor. Siken says, "The game has been working just fine without the 'go light' option. I see no reason for it to be enabled, and focus your efforts on something else." Siken sits cross-legged on the floor. Buddha says loudly, "Thank you Siken." Leon raises his hand. Vincent says, "It probably requires hardly any effort." Johnny says loudly, "Its not that hard to suicide twice" Buddha says loudly, "A little more passive-agressive than we'd like, but htank you all the same." Vincent glances at Siken. Buddha winks at Siken playfully. Johnny says loudly, "It gives some hope of an ending for other PCs" Matt raises his hand? Vetsa raises her hand. Buddha says loudly, "Final comment, Karma." Siken grins mischievously at Buddha. Karma asks, "about read notes, could we not just add a line of text that says action pending, meaning that the note has been read but won't be acted on right away?" Fengshui says loudly, "the effort is on the admin side when we have to reassign perma-pads, reapprove historeis, handle more job hirings, etc. we disabled it to prevent rage perms" Vincent vigorously nods at Karma and says, "Yes." Fengshui [to Karma]: that is implied in every note. Buddha says loudly, "That does not really apply to the topic at hand." Fengshui shouts loudly, "UNFORTUNATELY WE AREN'T GOING TO BE ABLE TO GET TO SOME OF THE CODE TOPICS, IF YOUR TOPIC WAS SKIPPED, PLEASE CREATE A BGBB THREAD IN IDEAS AND WE WILL DIG INTO IT THERE. WE ARE GOING TO END THIS WITH A FREE FOR ALL, JUST SHOUT YOUR IDEAS OUT FOR IDEAS FOR NEW CYBERNETIC ENHANCEMENTS. AFTER A MINUTE OF THAT, WE'LL HAVE CLOSING REMARKS AND THEN WE CAN CALL THE MEETING CLOSED AND HAVE INDIVIDUAL AND SPAMMY DISCUSSIONS!" Buddha shouts loudly, "GO!" Matt asks loudly, "Does that mean I can talk instead?" Fengshui exclaims loudly, "Taser penis!" Willheim shouts loudly, "TASER ARMS! LESS-GOOD CYBER!" Vincent casually nods at Matt. Connor shouts loudly, "DILDO HANDS!" Leon shouts loudly, "CYBERNETIC TAZER BIT!" Izzy shouts loudly, "GUN HANDS" Buddha shouts loudly, "TASER ALL THE THINGS!" Evelyn exclaims, "Oh ga dildoe hands? That's insane!" Vincent exclaims, "Cheaper guns!" Vetsa shouts loudly, "LONGBLADE NAILZ" Omara says, "*speaking english, in a slightly Hispanic accent with a crisp and sharp voice* Functional cyber apendages." Glitch says loudly, "*speaking english* Monofilament penis." Siken shouts loudly, "MINIGUNS THAT SHOOT KATANAS" Vincent exclaims, "So everyone isn't a brawler!" Vetsa shouts loudly, "WRISTBLADES" Nion says, "Shock absorbing legs. Jump off tall things. Crack the pavement." Fengshui shouts loudly, "LONGBLADE ARMS" Willheim shouts loudly, "LONG BLADES REPLACING YOUR HUMEROUS!" Hekate shouts loudly, "*speaking english, in a raspy soprano voice* CYBERMOUTH." Fengshui [to Nion]: Good one. Siken shouts loudly, "MARRYING OUR COUSINS." Izzy [to Nion]: STEALING MY SHIT Fengshui [to Johnny]: We should note that one. Matt says loudly, "REMOTE CYBERCOCK" Leon shouts loudly, "GUN...ARM?" You say loudly, "whip arms (like nailz, monofilaments maybe)" Amon says, "Extendable chainsaw teeth" Vetsa shouts loudly, "ACID GLAND!" Vincent says, "Someone played Cybersphere." Leon laughs loudly at Amon. Matt says loudly, "DETACHABLE EVERYTHING" Connor shouts loudly, "BALLS OF STEEL!" Evelyn says, "Oh yeah, Leon I like that one. Where your entire arm becomes a gun." Vetsa shouts loudly, "FOR SPITTING!" Fengshui [to You]: Technically already exists. Mordith exclaims, "NEUROMANCER FOR THIS CITY!" Fengshui [to You]: Monofiliment wrist whip. Eddie exclaims loudly, "*speaking english, in a light cockney-accented voice* MACHINE GUN BOOBS!" Willheim asks, "Armored skin?" Mordith exclaims, "ROGUE AI!" Fengshui [to You]: Isn't IC. Johnny says loudly, "Functional will be more costly than a clone, so you won't buy them unless you have extra cash laying around, hence they are not a priority." Zinna shouts loudly, "SPRING STEP LEGS!" Matt shouts loudly, "I WANNA BE MEGAMAN TOO" Kenji shouts loudly, "HIDDEN COMPARTMENTS" Atlas says, "*speaking english* Metal fangs as weapons so I can remove the throats of my enemies. It's more personal." Johnny says loudly, "Functional CYBERLIMBS will be more costly than a clone, so you won't buy them unless you have extra cash laying around, hence they are not a priority." You say loudly, "3D printed cheap arms (despite what was said earlier about nothing cheaper) for aesthetics / prosthetics" Connor casually nods at Atlas. Vetsa shouts loudly, "INTERNAL QUICKTERM!" Izzy shouts loudly, "CHROME THAT'S SHINY, LIKE RYCHEK'S." Syona shouts loudly, "*speaking english, in a quiet, feminine voice* MATRIIIX" Zinna shouts loudly, "EYE CAMERA!" Evelyn exclaims, "Oh yeah, hidden compartments! You can hide things... inside you, so people can't steal them!" Kenji shouts loudly, "PHONES!" Fengshui [to Zinna]: Already a thing. Vincent asks, "Can we go back to the game now?" Fengshui [to Zinna]: find out IC. Mordith exclaims, "STATIONARY LITE! STREETLITE!" Nion says, "hrmmm.. The ability to interface with vehicled in a way similar to trusight." You say loudly, "Extra perception eyes (not just low light)" Karma stands from their seat in the fourth row, and edges their way out of it into the aisle. Matt shouts loudly, "SWALLOW THE DRUGS AND POOP THEM OUT LATER" Karma vanishes from the meeting. Zinna [to Fengshui]: I need this in my life. Hekate shouts loudly, "ON VETSA'S LINE OF THINGS, THE GRID IN YOUR EYEBALLS." Leon shouts loudly, "YES EXTRA PERCEPTION EYES!" Amon says, "X-ray eyes to see thru clothes" [OOC] Linekin goes AFK. Izzy shouts loudly, "CHROME THAT CAN BE CUSTOM MADE TO LOOK LIKE HOW YOU WANT, LIKE THE ARTISTRY SKILL BUT FOR CHROME" Atlas says, "Hacker chrome." Vetsa shouts loudly, "EYEBALL GRID FOR THE WIN!" OC: Vincent asks, "Are we allowed to go back to the game?"] Evelyn exclaims, "Oh yeah, instant surgery!" Isa says, "*speaking english, in a melodic, thick creole accented voice* EYE CAMERAS...oh second that one." OC: Izzy says, "not quite yet"] Evelyn exclaims, "plastic surgery in demand!" Matt says loudly, "Please fuck please can I have perception nanos" Syona shouts loudly, "DECKER CHROME PLUS XRAY" Willheim says, "Actually, I had a question. You said that there wouldn't be any worse chrome. But, the current chrome we have is... exactly lifelike and perfect." Fengshui OOCly shouts, "if you wish to return to game you can. or you can stick around for closing remarks and open discussion." Fengshui OOCly shouts, "@town-hall to return to game" Mordith exclaims, "MR. HANDY'S!" OC: Johnny says, "we have eye cameras"] Lulu stands from their seat in the second row, and edges their way out of it into the aisle. Mordith says, "Oh wait that's fallout." Lulu vanishes from the meeting. Mordith chuckles softly. Vincent says, "*speaking english* SHIT, I forgot to ask a question" Zinna nods to Johnny. Manuel looks tired and yawns sleepily. Zinna shouts loudly, "PRINTERS!" Evelyn laughs loudly. Zinna nods casually. Fengshui steps back up to the podium for one final time, Thats it folks. Thank you so much for attending, for your feedback, for everything. We will be posting a log of the event on the BGBB for everyone to review, and for those who missed it. If you dont see a BGBB topic for something we decided to continue discussing-- create one when youre ready and lets keep this conversation going! The next town hall will be April, 2016! Connor shouts loudly, "CONFETTI FINGERS!" Atlas says, "I have a closing statement." Buddha calls for silence. Willheim exclaims, "Printers! Out our asscheeks!" Vincent asks, "Are you guys currently looking for PC's to take over businesses that have nobody?" Manuel shouts loudly, "*speaking english, in a baritone, thick Spanish-accented voice* LEARN MORE LANGUAGES SO YOU CAN TALK SHIT 'BOUT OTHERS!" Buddha calls for silence. Syona [to Zinna]: We ha ve those too. You aren't talking on any channel. Evelyn says, "I can see that now. A body printer. Your paper shoots out your mouth." Vetsa shits out grocery lists? Evelyn laughs loudly. Fengshui claps his hands together and says, "This Town Hall Meeting is officially ended. Socializing begins now!" Buddha calls for silence. OC: Izzy says, "here's a nice big list of chrome options http://www.mecha.com/~conkle/cyber/cyberware.html"] Fengshui shouts loudly, "OR.. IN A MOMENT!" Fengshui turns to Buddha. Connor respectfully bows to Buddha. Johnny says loudly, "If you want to hang out and ask me for more charts or code/feature-centric questions after the meeting, I'll be sticking around." Buddha says, "Before you all leave, I would like to give you a brief statement from myself, and to an extent the other GMs." Manuel stands from their seat in the second row, and edges their way out of it into the aisle. Manuel shouts loudly, "GOODBYE WITHMORE! WOOOOO!" Manuel vanishes from the meeting. Buddha says, "Some of you know me, I am Buddha, perhaps the most active GM at the moment." Willheim says, "Nah, I gotta leave ASAP, I've been supposed to be GMing something two hours ago." Karma appears out of nowhere. Buddha says, "Most of you have dealt with me, many of you have felt the gentle caress of my foot up your ass, and one of you still has my shoe." Buddha says, "But he's not here at the moment." Siken grins mischievously. Syona rubs her sore ass with a whimper. Mordith comforts Syona. Karma says, "quick suggestion about UE." Willheim wonders if he has any hidden bootprints on his ass. Karma pats Syona onna head parentally. Izzy [to Karma]: Wait one mo, Buddha's saying something I think. Buddha says, "*speaking english, in a calm voice* One thing that crops up from time to time, is a sort of persecution complex." Atlas says, "My final words are, if you have any questions about builds, donation pads, becoming a builder or joining our exclusive and illustrious fixit channel. Please xhelp or email help@sindome.org. " This shout generated by a cup of mystic sewer rats for Johnny: if you've left the amphitheater, you're going to miss my surprise! Buddha says, "People expressing anger over things that happen." Fengshui OOCly shouts, "return with @town-hall" Semya waits for said surprise. Manuel appears out of nowhere. Zinna [to Johnny]: Fix-it and coding? Buddha says, "But know this, because it's important." Manuel dances around happily. Karma raises a hand. Willheim stands from their seat in the third row, and edges their way out of it into the aisle. Lulu appears out of nowhere. Buddha says, "No GM, no admin, is out to get you." Lulu edges into the second row, and picks a seat and lowers theirself into it. Buddha says, "We're all here to -help- you." Connor leans slightly forward and licks Buddha suggestively. Karma casually nods at Buddha. Goobai asks loudly, "Is the peanut gallery permitted yet?" Matt applauds politely at Buddha. Buddha says, "And I will admit that this help can seem strange when it takes the form of a judge throwing your cloneless ass off of a skywalk." Karma laughs loudly. Syona [to Buddha]: B-but.. I swear you were watching me sleep last night! Kenji applauds politely at Buddha. Buddha says, "But all we want is to make the game as enjoyable as possible for as many folks as possible." Karma says, "could it be possible to impliment a UE counter? Like, if I type @assign ue, sometimes I lose track of how much UE I'm gained in a day." Buddha says, "Unfortunately, that means we sometimes have to be harsh with some of you." Manuel shouts loudly, "OI BREVS, WHEN'S DA SUPRISE?" Syona glares at Manuel. Fengshui [to Karma]: *speaking english, in an a stereotypically asian voice* it's a carrot, we aren't going to tell you when you're out of carrots. Izzy [to Karma]: *speaking english, in an a childish, hyperactive voice* You gain a max of 3 ue a day Leon whispers, "*something unintelligible*" to Karma. Mordith smacks Manuel upside the head, "Patience." Buddha says, "We sometimes have to remove people from the game, we sometimes have to derail plots, we sometimes even have to ban things." Buddha eyes Syona warily. Cheech takes out a Cypher-X Digital Bong. He pushes a button and is immediately surrounded by eerie green fog which lifts him above the crowd. Syona squints aggressively at Buddha. Buddha says, "Because we want everyone to be, if not happy, then at least equally miserable." Izzy blinks her eyes rapidly. Karma snickers sarcastically. Izzy eyes Cheech warily. Kenji casually nods at Buddha. Connor blinks at Cheech rapidly. Syona's decker ears perk up at the word, 'ban'. Fengshui bursts into a million holographic pieces and reappears in the center of the crowd, smiling. Buddha says, "But again, and this is important: We're not out to get you." Fengshui nods casually. Matt nods and nods and nods Izzy casually nods at Buddha. Kenji nods casually. Buddha says, "We want for you to have a great time as much as you want to have a great time." Seven says, "*speaking english, in a hispanic mixer accented voice* No, they aren't." Mordith nods in understanding. Seven exclaims, "But I am!" Seven cackles madly, his eyes lighting up with glee. Karma shakes all over. Matt tenderly gives Seven a warm hug. Connor [to Seven]: Hey.. you. Vincent says, "I like the idea of the UE counter, "You have reached the limit of your UE today, come back tomorrow!"" Manuel embraces Seven and french kisses him lasciviously. Mordith hugs Karma, comforting her. "It'll be alright.." Semya raises an eyebrow curiously at Manuel. Karma says, "exactly" Fengshui [to Proxy]: This is an RP game. We could ahve an RP counter. Fengshui [to Vincent]: This is an RP game. We could ahve an RP counter. Semya says, "*speaking english, in a softly feminine, hispanic and Miami accented voice* that got real.. real fast" Buddha says, "So enjoy the game, and just as importantly, make sure you help other people enjoy the game." Fengshui [to Proxy]: You haven't reached your RP goal, stay up later. Fengshui [to Vincent]: You haven't reached your RP goal, stay up later. Buddha says, "Because that's what we're here for." Vincent [to Fengshui]: Does it give me more UE to spend, if so, sold! Fengshui [to Vincent]: That's all it would ever say. Buddha says, "Enjoying the game." Buddha says, "Together." Fengshui [to Vincent]: The goal of the game isn't UE. Matt [to Buddha]: *speaking english, in a casual, exhausted American voice* So Buddha bows respectfully. Fengshui [to Vincent]: It's RP. Fengshui applauds politely at Buddha. Goobai [to Fengshui]: debatable Siken says, "What about that one time when you guys threw a rock thru my window which had a note which read 'We're gonna get ya' :(" Buddha says, "Thank you all for listening." Frijol stands from their seat in the second row, and edges their way out of it into the aisle. Izzy applauds politely at Buddha.

The marker makes a loud 'clicking' sound associated with a lodged paintball, and Johnny ratchets back the slide to desperately clear the chamber before Seven gets to his... Semya keeps a firm grip on Seven while fending off Siken's grapple attempts. Cheech lunges at you and locks you in a powerful hold. Johnny pauses and backs off from the fight, regaining his composure. Cheech grins mischievously. Nion [to Leon]: Eddie nudges Kenji in the shoulder. Hekate struggles in Vetsa's grasp but fails to break free. Semya struggles in Seven's grasp but fails to break free. You struggle in Cheech's grasp but can't break free. Vetsa releases her grip on Hekate. Johnny laughs loudly at Fengshui. Seven shivers violently and can't seem to stop his bleeding nose. You'll need to take a moment to recover before doing that. Cheech cackles madly, his eyes lighting up with glee. Hekate pauses and backs off from the fight, regaining her composure. Fengshui dodges aside as Siken makes a grab for him. Semya struggles in Seven's grasp but fails to break free. You [to Seven]: Aw snap moment of weakness Cheech releases his grip on you. Nion [to Leon]: Heya.. you mentioned you use a screenreader? Siken sniffles and starts crying woefully as tears roll off his cheeks. Connor blinks his eyes rapidly. Omara drops her SpyderCo paintball marker. Mordith laughs loudly. Connor leans slightly forward and licks Omara suggestively. Semya pauses and backs off from the fight, regaining her composure. Vetsa loudly whistles a nice little tune. Atlas moves close and huggles sweetly with Siken. Zinna [to Fengshui]: *speaking english* I'm having trouble finding the post asking for people to apply for coder and such. Willheim [to Leon]: If you can see in all this spam; I had no idea you were blind! Matt takes the final sip of his pint of Guinness, setting down the empty pint with a satisfied sigh. Fengshui forces people to stop attacking. Evelyn [to Johnny]: Question. An actual, question. is there a way to code it, so you can change matching order? I mean, if you have someone's business card for example, and that said person is in the same room as you, it fails horribly. Like if you type follow person, it assumes you want to follow the business card, and it fails horribly. I know, you can type count, and figure out which you need to use, but can there be a way to change the matching thing? Does that make any sense at all? Salafan vanishes from the meeting. Nion [to Leon]: I may have misunderstood. Leon asks, "So if I wanted to get a permapad but can't donate in one chunk can I just keep donating once a month until I reach said point?" Seven releases his grip on Semya. Mordith asks, "Heal please?" Buddha appears out of nowhere. Buddha steps away from the podium. Fengshui raises his hands above his head, mumbling a few incoherent words. Fengshui glows with a strange blue light briefly before emerging in perfect health.

Buddha glows with a strange blue light briefly before emerging in perfect health. Buddha steps up to the podium and adjusts the micropohone. Connor tenderly gives Buddha a warm hug. Matt [to Johnny]: While people are talking to you Siken says, "Bawwwwwwwwwwk." Vetsa picks up the lit Stella Nero cigar. Atlas waves nonchalantly. Vetsa eyes her surroundings warily. Buddha says, "I had to briefly step out for the festivities." Marcello picks up the sencha green tea. Vetsa unlocks her matte black Xo3 battle helmet, a slight hiss emitted from within as it releases suction and slides from her head. Buddha grins mischievously. Leon drops his SpyderCo paintball marker. Izzy sighs quietly. Vetsa takes a long drag from her lit Stella Nero cigar, exhaling a dark cloud of spicy smoke into the air. Nion [to Leon]: Yo mano. I mighta misunderstood but did you say you use a screenreader? Vetsa jumps out of the way in the nick of time as Cheech attempts to wrest something from her. Siken says, "Bb-b-b-b-bb-bawwwkaaaa." Johnny [to Evelyn]: *speaking english, in a clear, distinguished baritone voice* and it ends up breaking other things with the other order. Vetsa says, "Ooooh yeah." Matt [to Johnny]: I would like to interview you for a class at some point Mordith chuckles softly. Mordith gets out his SpyderCo paintball marker. Mordith drops his SpyderCo paintball marker. Connor [to Siken]: Sounds about right. Nion walks around the front of the rows of seats and picks one out to sit in, and lowers theirself into it. Mordith puts his SpyderCo paintball marker away. Leon [to Vetsa]: I....feel so....messy.... Seven seems to have stopped his nosebleed. Syona [to Johnny]: I have a question about your answer to my Matrix question: You said Yes to deckers being able to affect the IC world more directly either via chrome or some other device in the future. Are there any more details you can give me on that? Matt says loudly, "Ill be back in a few" Izzy shouts loudly, "OH, GUYS, I'M IN THE INTIAL STAGES OF DESIGNING A SINDOME TOP DOWN 2D RPG" Johnny [to Matt]: ok, email me some general time slots and I can let you know if I'm free? Izzy casually nods at Fengshui. Vetsa [to Leon]: I too, feel a little dirty. Matt's body goes limp as he slumps to the ground unconscious. Hekate unbuttons her pear green raincoat and takes it off. Nion shrugs. Cheech pokes Izzy in the ribs repeatedly. Connor spanks Vetsa on the butt. Evelyn [to Johnny]: Wait, what ends up breaking other things? Sorry, I missed your message. It's uber spammy. Mordith says, "Fuck, should've worn my immy clothes for this.." Hiro says, "The contents of Johnny's pockets have given me great insight..." Goobai grabs Johnny's arms in an attempt to frisk him. In a quick burst of strength, Johnny shoves Goobai's arms outwards, breaking Goobai's grip. Fengshui asks loudly, "Anyone want to talk to me about anything tonight?" Siken clumsily reaches for Johnny. He sees Siken coming and easily sidesteps out of the way, chuckling as Siken grabs only air. Vetsa takes a long drag from her lit Stella Nero cigar, exhaling a dark cloud of spicy smoke into the air. Buddha exclaims, "Ladies and gentlemen!" Buddha exclaims, "Chat time!" Goobai [to Fengshui]: What's your favorite brand of condom Seven slouches poorly, seeming exhausted. Leon says, "I'm not sure if anyone answered my question." Connor reaches up and grips his WJF Cadet Helmet, pausing momentarily as the exhaust vents hiss before pulling it off his head. Hekate cheers weakly, "Yaaay." OC: Fengshui says, "careful pickpocketing admin, there are some items that if you hold you instantly die"] Johnny [to Syona]: well, all the doors, all the security gear, the apartment controls, the gridphones, the grid servers, they'll all be affectable from the matrix to various degrees. Connor gets out his chocolate chip brownie. Connor breaks off a nice chunk of his chocolate chip brownie, popping it in his mouth and chewing with a content smile. Mordith asks, "Can we keep the markers?" Mordith grins. OC: Goobai says, "i like to live dangerously"] OC: Izzy asks, "why's that?"] OC: Fengshui says, "like, you become a corpse"] Vetsa [to Goobai]: Naughty. OC: Goodman says, "I live a quarter mile at a time"] OC: Goobai says, "i'm already a corpse"] OC: Willheim exclaims, "That sounds like something an admin would say to keep up from picking their infinite monies!"] OC: Goobai says, "on the inside"] Nion says, "Anyone with a screenreader. I am a fully sighted person looking to perhaps try using a screenreader so I can understand what it is that is lost from fully sighted gameplay. Need some advice on how to start up playing with a screenreader." OC: Goobai is crawling in his skin] Johnny [to Evelyn]: changing the order. Zinna [to Fengshui]: There's a tabard in WoW that kills you if you wear it. Mordith picks up the SpyderCo paintball marker. Connor pokes Gerik in the ribs repeatedly. Leon [to Nion]: I am one of those peoples Syona [to Johnny]: Are you saying I'll be able to listen to someone's phone call by breaking into it via the Matrix? Sorry, I'm just very interested and impatient. Zinna [to Fengshui]: It used to kill everything around you instead. Then a player got ahold of one. Mordith gets out his SpyderCo paintball marker. Mordith drops his SpyderCo paintball marker. Mordith puts his SpyderCo paintball marker away. Vetsa gets out her SpyderCo paintball marker. Vetsa drops her SpyderCo paintball marker. Syona [to Johnny]: AKA, similar to the Watch Dogs game? Vetsa gets out her SpyderCo paintball marker. Vetsa drops her SpyderCo paintball marker. Nion [to Leon]: Aces. You game for helping me out? Kenji [to Johnny]: *speaking english, in a thickly Japanese accented voice* One thing that bugs: Supposedly non-combat NPCs consistently resort to violent means for resolution of non-violent crime. Specifically they have a habit of grappling you, and choking you out rather than doing something more themely. Like run. Or call the authorities. Or call for help and dispatch a TERRA unit/Judge. I find this to be unfair because it negates all combat skills since grapple is just incredibly overpowered. I also find it a little unbelievable that these people are so certain that they can take on a thief on the streets. Buddha [to Syona]: We'd like to leave some of this a my stery. Vetsa snuffs out her lit Stella Nero cigar. Leon [to Nion]: Yes as soon as the spam goes down. Buddha gets out her SpyderCo paintball marker. Buddha drops her SpyderCo paintball marker. Connor [to Gerik]: You bring the donuts or what? Eddie [to Kenji]: Hey, hey, hey, amigo. Mordith edges into the third row, and picks a seat and lowers theirself into it. Vetsa drops her Stella Nero cigar. Evelyn [to Johnny]: Oh okay. So this will just be one of those things that you just have to deal with? I'm fine with that, but I was just curiosu if it's at all possible to do something about it. Buddha picks up the Stella Nero cigar. Buddha takes a drag on her unlit Stella Nero cigar. Izzy casts an appraising eye over the area, searching for something. Kenji smiles innocently at Eddie. Kenji [to Eddie]: I can talk! Vetsa gets out her disposable lighter. Vetsa hands disposable lighter to Buddha. Connor walks around the front of the rows of seats and picks one out to sit in, and lowers theirself into it. Syona [to Buddha]: Of course, I would assume so. I'm just hoping for any details you guys feel like you can give while still keeping it a surprise. Kenji grins mischievously at Eddie. You [to Buddha]: I've got a Q on the judges pipeline Evelyn [to Johnny]: Because like this fails if say you want to chuckle at a person. typing chuckling second person's name, fails. Eddie eyes Kenji suspiciously then gasp in surprise. "You can!?" Fengshui OOCly shouts, "hey, all my loggers out there, email your logs to help@sindome.org" Buddha lights her Stella Nero cigar with her disposable lighter, a puff of smoke coming off the end as she draws on it. Glitch says loudly, "I had to go AFK for a bit, but if anyone wants to ask me any questions I'm more than happy to answer them." Buddha hands disposable lighter to Vetsa.
