Memory List and TiDi
Trauma that Overwhelms Memory

I think it would be a great and frightening addition to the TiDi experience if it forcibly overwrites memories saved with the memorize command. Coming out of TiDi after ten years with the same data rolling around as before? Twenty? Thirty? Would your brain remember phone numbers or whatever else you keep in there after it's been mush for a a decade or more?

Or rather, would it remember the things you wailed in your mind? Silent cries for mercy or death or...whatever it is you wish for in the thick of it?

Please make it stop.

Imagine until the time you replace the trauma in your memories with new ones, you see a list like that every time you try to recall something simple. Terrifying af.

Oof

TiDi is so cool.

Woops. Lost part of my comment there - said I liked this idea. TiDi is so cool and it really is terrifying. Altered or shattered memories would be a definite part of it.
That. Is. Chilling. What a great idea.

Honestly the whole idea of TiDi has given me IRL nightmares. No human would be able to survive even a year in such circumstances with their sanity intact, let alone decades or centuries. It's a fate worse than death, for sure.

Interesting concept, but I wonder if people would just meta and copy and paste it before the TiDi? Or like, are we saying that TiDi causes them to forget everyone they knew or only have a vague recollection of them? Like, I often don't even need to store my apartment code in memory because I have it actually memorized IRL. How would we handle that? Is a GM policing it and saying whoa there, you don't remember that? Seems like a recipe for an argument with a player.

Don't get me wrong, it's a great idea. I'm just not sold on it not causing OOC issues or requiring meta policing that we don't wanna engage it.

I'm not saying you don't get to remember anything that you've got in your head OOCly. Or that you can't overwrite immediately with other memories if you really wanted to. Mostly I think it would be a fantastic addition to the already terrifying immersion of the TiDi script itself. More of a themely result than something I had considered enforcing after the fact. If players want to use that to fuel their post TiDi rp, then great! If not, that's fine too?

The trauma that results from TiDi (I can't think of any better word for it when the help file says it 'turns your brain to mush') doesn't disappear just because you've been released. Constantly being reminded of the that dread when you use (what is for me at least) a very common command is like a little reminder that it isn't over just because you're free again.

Since 'remember/memory' itself feels like sort of a conscious recall of information instead of the unconscious recall of your apartment code, I can see the clearing out of it as meaningful.
