[2018/02/18 11:50] NeoBokrug Elytis: This toolbox on the bunker is some freebies Jubal gave out.
[2018/02/18 11:51] Aposiopesis Fullstop: I still use some of it, actually!
[2018/02/18 11:51] Pietro Moskvitch: Obviously everyone needs that.
[2018/02/18 11:51] Dassina Andel: Yup. Gonna have to put these in the Stor-Y Soc.
[2018/02/18 11:51] Aposiopesis Fullstop: Good primwork with good textures will never quite look old.

[2018/02/18 11:52] Pietro Moskvitch: I needs it.
[2018/02/18 11:52] Aposiopesis Fullstop: There is not, in fact.
[2018/02/18 11:53] Aposiopesis Fullstop: Well, not that I know of. Somebody somewhere, etc.
[2018/02/18 11:53] Pietro Moskvitch: that’s it I’m quitting forever again.
[2018/02/18 11:53] Aposiopesis Fullstop: Be the change you want to see in the world, Pietro.
[2018/02/18 11:53] Malice Shepherd: Good advice
[2018/02/18 11:53] Aposiopesis Fullstop: Actually, wait, don’t do that; there’d be no survivors.

[2018/02/18 11:54] Rax Stooge: it
[2018/02/18 11:54] Pietro Moskvitch: you’re a form of nostalgia.
[2018/02/18 11:54] Aposiopesis Fullstop: Oh man, frozen fish.
[2018/02/18 11:54] Grady Echegaray: damn straight!
[2018/02/18 11:54] Malice Shepherd: Fishsticks
[2018/02/18 11:54] Rax Stooge: so muych so my typoing is even worse than normal.

[2018/02/18 11:57] Dassina Andel: Wasn’t Jubal the one that pushed for Trade Scrit for the longest time?
[2018/02/18 11:57] NeoBokrug Elytis: Indeed
[2018/02/18 11:57] Malice Shepherd: Sounds about right to me.

TURPS
[2018/02/18 11:57] Aposiopesis Fullstop: I think so. But I don’t think he liked what it turned out to be, or something.
[2018/02/18 11:57] BB Bjorkdjork (bridget.boissel): I love seeing those old photos
[2018/02/18 11:58] Kezz Mauriac: Yeah, Scrip was Jubal’s thing
[2018/02/18 11:58] Aposiopesis Fullstop: Saaaame. Even ones from “only” a couple years ago are so charming.
[2018/02/18 11:58] BB Bjorkdjork (bridget.boissel): So much
[2018/02/18 11:58] BB Bjorkdjork (bridget.boissel): haha what was turps
[2018/02/18 11:59] Dassina Andel: Bar at the Trade Post
[2018/02/18 11:59] Grady Echegaray: hey Digger πŸ™‚

[2018/02/18 11:59] Aposiopesis Fullstop: A’ight, gonna get the stream going. This is a collection of songs Jubal had on a Wastelands playlist…
[2018/02/18 11:59] NeoBokrug Elytis: I’ma just start throwin’ out URLs to youtube videos I have of the Trade post.

[2018/02/18 12:00] Kezz Mauriac: Ahoy, Sandu
[2018/02/18 12:00] Dassina Andel: Man, what I wouldn’t do for video footage of the Brominite attack to exist…
[2018/02/18 12:00] Malice Shepherd: Oh man
[2018/02/18 12:00] Malice Shepherd: Moy’s channel
[2018/02/18 12:00] Sohma G. Dawling (sohma.dix): oh shit thats an oldie, akiko

[2018/02/18 12:00] Pietro Moskvitch: ho there Dex
[2018/02/18 12:00] Aposiopesis Fullstop: Allo, Dexter.
[2018/02/18 12:00] Aposiopesis Fullstop: IT’S… TIME.
[2018/02/18 12:00] Dexter Bogdanovich: .
[2018/02/18 12:00] Grady Echegaray: ahoy Dex πŸ™‚
[2018/02/18 12:01] Pietro Moskvitch: onigokko
[2018/02/18 12:01] Pietro Moskvitch: WOOOO!
[2018/02/18 12:01] Aposiopesis Fullstop: So, I just wanted to start out by saying something a little general.
[2018/02/18 12:01] Aposiopesis Fullstop: I’ve got more personal and direct things to share later, but… yeah.
[2018/02/18 12:01] Aposiopesis Fullstop: Wastelanders, wanderers, friends. We have gathered today to remember one of our own.
[2018/02/18 12:01] Aposiopesis Fullstop: Here in Second Life, we have a unique perspective. When we look at the avatars around us, we don’t see their physical bodies. We don’t see their age. We don’t see their size. We don’t see their gender or race, their health or their wealth. We see what people choose to present. Even if they’re a Day One noob in a Library avatar, it’s one that they’ve chosen to use to express themselves.
[2018/02/18 12:02] Aposiopesis Fullstop: The first thing we see of someone is a stylistic choice. The first thing we see of someone is their art.
[2018/02/18 12:02] Aposiopesis Fullstop: This world is virtual and ephemeral, but it’s still real. It is as real as a painting. It is as real as a story or a song. It is as real as any play – our sets and costumes and props are simply made of pixels and code.
[2018/02/18 12:02] Aposiopesis Fullstop: In the over-eleven years of The Wastelands, hundreds of us have come through this Bunker and stepped out onto the sand. And we’ve done even more weirdness. Together, we’ve made this world, this community, this culture. We create, we collaborate, we share, we spread. We do things that inspire other things that inspire still other things. We run around in each others’ imaginations.
[2018/02/18 12:02] Aposiopesis Fullstop: It may seem like a long time and a lot of people. But in the end, we are few, and we are brief. Our minds and imaginations can only do so much for so long.
[2018/02/18 12:03] Aposiopesis Fullstop: When any one mind is gone from us, the whole of the creation is diminished.
[2018/02/18 12:03] Aposiopesis Fullstop: Whether you knew Jubal or not, his is a deep and painful loss.
[2018/02/18 12:03] Aposiopesis Fullstop: But Wastelanders are familiar with loss. In our stories, we’re cast adrift in a fragmented world. We see the wreckage of past creations and we have no way to know about their creators. We don’t know what things were. We don’t know what things meant. We could make the world better again, if only we knew how. But we don’t.
[2018/02/18 12:03] Aposiopesis Fullstop: And that’s why, here and now, we remember.
[2018/02/18 12:04] Aposiopesis Fullstop: That’s why, this time around, we hold tight to our knowledge. We know that THINGS come and go, that THINGS can be built and destroyed and rebuilt time and time again. It’s information, imagination, and memory that will fade away in time – unless they’re cherished and preserved and passed along.
[2018/02/18 12:04] Aposiopesis Fullstop: And that’s why we are here today.
[2018/02/18 12:04] Aposiopesis Fullstop: We are here to share our memories of Jubal. Of all that he shared with us, or did for us, or meant to us.
[2018/02/18 12:04] Aposiopesis Fullstop: We will not forget.
[2018/02/18 12:04] Aposiopesis Fullstop: To me, death isn’t black and bones. To me, death is beige and feathers. Beige for the sands – the sands that give, the sands that take. But the sand again becomes stone someday – and that stone, too, becomes sand. Things may come and go, things may change form and function. Yet it is part of an eternal cycle.
[2018/02/18 12:04] Aposiopesis Fullstop: But maybe there’s more than the sandy skin of the physical world. Maybe there’s something in us, feathered and fleeting and windborne, that can transcend those cycles of rocks and sand. Something that’s no longer limited to left and right, back and forth, past and future, but that propel us through new and once-unknowable dimensions of up and down.
[2018/02/18 12:05] Aposiopesis Fullstop: Who knows if, after death, after the end of thing-ness, some spirit still remains – freed from the terrestrial cycles, freed to soar in incomprehensible ways through a realm 90 degrees from real.
[2018/02/18 12:05] Aposiopesis Fullstop: But, come what may, I hope that Jubal, and everyone who has cared for him and his creations, will be able to find some peace.
[2018/02/18 12:05] Aposiopesis Fullstop: Thanks for being here, everyone.
[2018/02/18 12:06] Grady Echegaray: Thank you Apo
[2018/02/18 12:06] NeoBokrug Elytis: Thank you.
[2018/02/18 12:06] Irk (shannonwilsonbell): Thanks Apo
[2018/02/18 12:06] Grady Echegaray: well said
[2018/02/18 12:06] Pietro Moskvitch: I kind of want to clap.
[2018/02/18 12:06] Pietro Moskvitch: That was very good.
[2018/02/18 12:06] BB Bjorkdjork (bridget.boissel): That was beautiful :'(
[2018/02/18 12:06] Dexter Bogdanovich: thank you
[2018/02/18 12:06] The Digger (sandusky.kayvon): Thank you very much Apo
[2018/02/18 12:06] Kezz Mauriac: Thank you, Apo.
[2018/02/18 12:06] Aposiopesis Fullstop smiles a bit.

[2018/02/18 12:08] NickCitrus: Hello
[2018/02/18 12:09] Grady Echegaray: hola nick πŸ™‚
[2018/02/18 12:09] Second Life: Items successfully shared.
[2018/02/18 12:09] Pietro Moskvitch: Idunno if anyone else wants to say anything, but I just wanted to say a little bit real quick.
[2018/02/18 12:09] Malice Shepherd: Go for it.
[2018/02/18 12:09] Aposiopesis Fullstop: Go for it; I’m just passing out drinks.
[2018/02/18 12:09] Aposiopesis Fullstop: Heh.
[2018/02/18 12:10] Pietro Moskvitch: Jubal was The Vault Dweller. An Iconic wastelander. Even when Neo stubbornly insisted he didn’t know what Fallout was, Jubal was bringing it to life here for people to see and bring on lawsuit threats. That was huge and he’s a big loss.
[2018/02/18 12:10] Dexter Bogdanovich: yes
[2018/02/18 12:11] Malice Shepherd: So many cease and desists. lol…
[2018/02/18 12:11] Kezz Mauriac: That’s pure truth.
[2018/02/18 12:11] Aposiopesis Fullstop: Hahaha, SO many.
[2018/02/18 12:11] Sohma G. Dawling (sohma.dix): hehhehe i think his account still has the Bethesda cease and desist
[2018/02/18 12:11] Malice Shepherd: Didnt Face get hit with it too
[2018/02/18 12:11] Akiko Thursday: https://i.gyazo.com/2c13ac9d423a53b1e64f5d16f6b629f0.png


[2018/02/18 12:13] Aposiopesis Fullstop: I’m not sure about that.. but I still thought it was great that, after he got that C&D, Jubal solved the problem by just offering all that stuff for free, instead.
[2018/02/18 12:14] NeoBokrug Elytis: On top of the bunker is a toolbox of freebies the Jubal used to hand out. I will leave it there for anyone to take. πŸ™‚
[2018/02/18 12:14] Pietro Moskvitch: Awesome, Neo.
[2018/02/18 12:14] Pietro Moskvitch: Someone should build a fucking Minuteman statue for you to use instead of the toolbox.
[2018/02/18 12:14] Malice Shepherd: I wanna say something, but I am not good with feelings, so I am going to keep it short and sweet as well. Pietro was, and will always be, a community legend. From helping me grow as a roleplayer, to inspiring factions far after his time to do things like try to organize independent markets, events for roleplay, or just to try to bring people together as a community… It’s a heavy loss.
[2018/02/18 12:15] Pietro Moskvitch: *cough*
[2018/02/18 12:15] Sohma G. Dawling (sohma.dix) snickers
[2018/02/18 12:15] Aposiopesis Fullstop: Be less dead, Pietro. πŸ˜‰
[2018/02/18 12:15] NeoBokrug Elytis: Hah
[2018/02/18 12:15] Malice Shepherd: m bad
[2018/02/18 12:15] Dexter Bogdanovich: [Scheisse]
[2018/02/18 12:15] Akiko Thursday: Pietro, no one told you. it’s a wastelands tradition to send one of our own off with a servant to follow them into the afterlife
[2018/02/18 12:16] Malice Shepherd: Drinking a bit. lmao.
[2018/02/18 12:16] Akiko Thursday: You’ve been chosen as the sacrifice
[2018/02/18 12:16] Malice Shepherd: lmmfao Akiko
[2018/02/18 12:16] Aposiopesis Fullstop: The potatoes shall grow well.
[2018/02/18 12:16] Aposiopesis Fullstop: Pietatos.
[2018/02/18 12:16] Pietro Moskvitch: Uh, I’ve been dead to the wastelands for like what, 8 years? I think I’m good.
[2018/02/18 12:16] Malice Shepherd: Well now that I have made an ass of myself.
[2018/02/18 12:16] Malice Shepherd: Cheers.
[2018/02/18 12:16] Pietro Moskvitch: It was good words, Malice, despite the error.
[2018/02/18 12:16] Aposiopesis Fullstop: Cheers indeed, Malice! Thank you. πŸ˜€
[2018/02/18 12:16] Sohma G. Dawling (sohma.dix): i thought you guys would enjoy the fact that at his IRL service, many people got up to spoke and -almost- every one of them said “he lived, he died, he will live again” and we would reply “witnessed”
[2018/02/18 12:16] NeoBokrug Elytis: Wouldn’t be a memorial if someone didn’t fill that slot!
[2018/02/18 12:17] Aposiopesis Fullstop: <3
[2018/02/18 12:17] NeoBokrug Elytis: Haha nice!
[2018/02/18 12:17] Malice Shepherd: Goodbye
[2018/02/18 12:17] Akiko Thursday: Perfect.
[2018/02/18 12:17] Malice Shepherd: [Jew Ball]
[2018/02/18 12:17] Aposiopesis Fullstop: Haha!
[2018/02/18 12:17] Pietro Moskvitch snickers.
[2018/02/18 12:18] Aposiopesis Fullstop: Praise Jubus. https://www.flickr.com/photos/fullstop/16063228220/

PRAISE JUBUS!
[2018/02/18 12:18] Pietro Moskvitch: Kezz, you should tell everyone how Jubal probably helped you learn to be not quite so uptight.
[2018/02/18 12:18] Pietro Moskvitch: You were kind of a wanker until you started hanging out with him.
[2018/02/18 12:18] Sohma G. Dawling (sohma.dix) cackles
[2018/02/18 12:19] Aposiopesis Fullstop: Hahaha!
[2018/02/18 12:19] Grady Echegaray: lols
[2018/02/18 12:20] Celestine Grim (sharmoore): well hello there
[2018/02/18 12:20] Dassina Andel: My first two “collectible” old junk pieces were from Jubal. WL: Tin Can for “sale” outside the wall of the original Trade Post, and WL: Spark Plugs he gave me, just for a night of recounting battle stories to him.
[2018/02/18 12:22] Kezz Mauriac: I’ve been trying to figure out what to say for ages now. I’ve got almost nothing. Yeah, in the first Trade Post days, I mean, we all had a lot of friends in the WL, but Jubal’s presence was different in a way I can’t really put into words. I guess the best way I can say it is he put up with my shit, heh. Some of my best memories period are the long evenings sitting at the bar talking crap, playing that radio of his over and over.
[2018/02/18 12:22] Tokiko Tigerpaw pulls out a bottle, pours out a generous amount on the ground, and takes a swig.
[2018/02/18 12:22] Kezz Mauriac: The one that played Ink Spots and What a Wonderful World back to back, because he never figured out how to get them to play alone.
[2018/02/18 12:22] Aposiopesis Fullstop grins.
[2018/02/18 12:22] Malice Shepherd: lmao…
[2018/02/18 12:23] Pietro Moskvitch: nice
[2018/02/18 12:23] Akiko Thursday: Did anyone else RP with Jubal in Mhirdrun or Shadowrun?
[2018/02/18 12:23] Sohma G. Dawling (sohma.dix): Once he figured out how to stream, you guys do not even know the hours of research he went into finding just the right ambient noises and music to put on Kronbelt. and he got giddy with each discovery
[2018/02/18 12:23] Aposiopesis Fullstop: Man, I just loved his ambient noises that he always had on his parcel.
[2018/02/18 12:23] Pietro Moskvitch: That’s not surprising at all.
[2018/02/18 12:23] Akiko Thursday: Wondering if his crew in either other place knows.
[2018/02/18 12:24] Aposiopesis Fullstop: No idea, sadly. When he went wandering, I didn’t pry about what he was doing instead.
[2018/02/18 12:25] Sohma G. Dawling (sohma.dix): he hopped from cyberpunk rps
[2018/02/18 12:25] Pietro Moskvitch: I think a lot of us did. A lot of Neo’s friends that helped and/or came in at the start were from cyberpunk rps.
[2018/02/18 12:25] Aposiopesis Fullstop: Oh yeah, you and a bunch of others were refugees from Nexus Prime, I know.
[2018/02/18 12:26] Kezz Mauriac: Shout out to Nexus Prime.
[2018/02/18 12:26] Pietro Moskvitch: yeah. I followed Spider and Ash over.
[2018/02/18 12:26] Sohma G. Dawling (sohma.dix): When I can gather my senses and focus, I will put out resources to use for his Civil Defense Leauge he started. I got embroidered patches, sparypaint, chalk textures to use
[2018/02/18 12:26] Grady Echegaray: yo Nexus
[2018/02/18 12:27] Pietro Moskvitch: Hm…
[2018/02/18 12:27] Pietro Moskvitch internets a thing.
[2018/02/18 12:27] Aposiopesis Fullstop: Uhoh.

Old Familiar Faces
[2018/02/18 12:29] NeoBokrug Elytis: I am not really good with feelings. In first life I am overly sensitive and empathetic, that’s why in SL I am a robot. So I will give it my best shot… Jubal and I didn’t always see eye to eye on everything — but I think that was a good thing. He challenged my perceptions of what this community is and could be. Certainly all of us here are at least a little shaped and molded from our interactions with him, in character and out. Both of his Trade Post incarnations is a legacy many have tried to imitate, and have vehimiatantly failed to do so. I don’t think anything will ever hold a candle to that artistic expression of his. During the times it was gone people spoke of it as if a legend of it’s own. People still do to this day. The things he’s done for us will never be forgotten.

That being said, I would like to keep his inworld character alive. Unseen but spoken of by the NPCs of the estate. I know it’s a stretch for those who may have already RPed dealing with his loss, but let’s retcon that
[2018/02/18 12:29] NeoBokrug Elytis: and keep his virtual spirit around.
[2018/02/18 12:30] Aposiopesis Fullstop: Haha, I can see him just becoming a folk hero.
[2018/02/18 12:31] Dassina Andel: The habit of wandering in and out of here is DEFINITELY Jubal.
[2018/02/18 12:31] Malice Shepherd: So it shall be.
[2018/02/18 12:31] The Digger (sandusky.kayvon): I agree
[2018/02/18 12:31] Akiko Thursday: Ha, I think it’s fine. Jubal RP’d offing himself in many ways, many times.
[2018/02/18 12:31] Malice Shepherd: He is our Grey Man.
[2018/02/18 12:31] Akiko Thursday: In public and in private.
[2018/02/18 12:31] Akiko Thursday: Fucker always seems to come back.
[2018/02/18 12:31] Sohma G. Dawling (sohma.dix): just say he wandered off again, as he always did and came back
[2018/02/18 12:31] Akiko Thursday: He stays in spirit wherever he’s walked
[2018/02/18 12:31] Kezz Mauriac: That’s the Jubal I know.
[2018/02/18 12:31] Dassina Andel: If you weren’t around when he wandered back in, you’d always hear about him from others.
[2018/02/18 12:32] Aposiopesis Fullstop: Fifty years on, Jubal Quintus is still raiding slaver camps and punching tyrants to death.
[2018/02/18 12:32] Akiko Thursday: Easily.
[2018/02/18 12:32] Sohma G. Dawling (sohma.dix): ^^^ straight up, just started crying again
[2018/02/18 12:33] Pietro Moskvitch: I heard that after Jubal wandered off, he beat up a horde of super mutants and ate their leader in front of them so they could see what it feels like.
[2018/02/18 12:33] Aposiopesis Fullstop: A hundred more years, and Jobokinta is the ancient protector spirit of the defenseless.
[2018/02/18 12:33] Wasteland Drifter (wastelanddrifter): Indeed
[2018/02/18 12:34] Pietro Moskvitch: Patron of Merchants and the Defenseless.
[2018/02/18 12:34] Aposiopesis Fullstop: Pfft. Jubal Quintus got attacked by twenty Ghouls in the middle of the night, and he punched every one of their hearts out.
[2018/02/18 12:34] Aposiopesis Fullstop: And then he woke up.
[2018/02/18 12:34] Akiko Thursday: He was a mentor in imagining ourselves, and he often confronted his own mortality in his own imaginings. I hope I can do so as gracefully some day. I feel like, after having RP’d with him that way, like
[2018/02/18 12:34] Akiko Thursday: I don’t know. It’s hard to articulate.
[2018/02/18 12:34] Dexter Bogdanovich: hes in walhalla now. good booze there. tomorrow he will kill demnd mutants again
[2018/02/18 12:35] Aposiopesis Fullstop: He was aware of how ephemeral people and things could be. Nothing was forever. But… it was like everything WAS forever, right up until it wasn’t. (And then it still was anyway.)
[2018/02/18 12:35] Sohma G. Dawling (sohma.dix) raises a glass of firecracker soda
[2018/02/18 12:35] Pietro Moskvitch: Jubal Quintus dissassembles brominites.
[2018/02/18 12:35] Dassina Andel: Jubal and Chuck Norris got into a fight once… they haven’t stopped fighting since, they just take extended breaks.
[2018/02/18 12:35] Grady Echegaray: *slurps some turps
[2018/02/18 12:35] Aposiopesis Fullstop: Jubal Quintus doesn’t have blood. He just liquefied some Rust Giants and injected it straight in his veins.
[2018/02/18 12:36] Sohma G. Dawling (sohma.dix): he may have lost an eye, but he never lost his nerve
[2018/02/18 12:37] Aposiopesis Fullstop: I think… I think this was the last time I saw him inworld. He’d said he was just hermiting it up, somewhere in the Sand Seas – but coming back to the Oasis and Fissure for water. https://www.flickr.com/photos/fullstop/34441831462/

Old Familiar Faces
[2018/02/18 12:37] Pietro Moskvitch: …nice.
[2018/02/18 12:37] Akiko Thursday: Does he still have the nomad camp?
[2018/02/18 12:37] Aposiopesis Fullstop: I love that I have at least three different photos of him in my Flickr, each at least a year or two apart, each titled with “Old Familiar Faces.”
[2018/02/18 12:37] Kezz Mauriac: Nice indeed.
[2018/02/18 12:38] Akiko Thursday: If so, is there a tier donation plate out? It would be cool to keep it in his name.
[2018/02/18 12:38] NeoBokrug Elytis: He does not.
[2018/02/18 12:39] Pietro Moskvitch: good idea, though.
[2018/02/18 12:39] The Digger (sandusky.kayvon): I said and shared a few things last week in the Dischord chat when Apo first shared the news. Old snapshots and stories from the Press. Memories of his protest march around the wastes with that picket sign.
[2018/02/18 12:39] The Digger (sandusky.kayvon): Jubal was not one of the first people i met when I first came here. That may have been barry. But he is still one of the most memorable. Jubal and I also did not agree on everything but we had great discussions, both in character and out of character about the Wastelands, the culture, his suspicions and distrust of the Tin Man and the masheens, his firm belief in the ability of the Wastelanders to be more than just people plugging junk in a box and hoping for something to come out. I enjoyed those discussions and will miss him.
[2018/02/18 12:39] Sohma G. Dawling (sohma.dix): I will see what I can do when I go back to his house. His RL wife had no idea how to get into SL but when I go back (soonish?) I can root and see.
[2018/02/18 12:40] Pietro Moskvitch: Make sure to wrap yourself in crinkled up tinfoil and then give her like a hundred hugs.
[2018/02/18 12:40] Akiko Thursday: When I saw him in October, he said Alderheim was his new RP go-to. It would be cool to raid his many RP places. He was in a coven there. Or maybe that was Mhirdrunk. Between that and looking at his facebook, I don’t think I’ve ever seen anyone with a personality so compelling as to gather so many far-flung friends, most of whom loved him so well but had never met him irl.
[2018/02/18 12:40] Pietro Moskvitch: Because we’re all very spiky.
[2018/02/18 12:40] Sohma G. Dawling (sohma.dix): thanks
[2018/02/18 12:41] Aposiopesis Fullstop: Yer welcome.
[2018/02/18 12:43] Pietro Moskvitch: This is nice.
[2018/02/18 12:43] Grady Echegaray: it is
[2018/02/18 12:43] Aposiopesis Fullstop: The thing about Jubal was that he always saw what things could be – or should be. Sometimes, that made it harder for him to accept what was, I think.
[2018/02/18 12:43] Sohma G. Dawling (sohma.dix): It is. He would be shocked and embarassed in a cute way
[2018/02/18 12:43] Pietro Moskvitch: I’m surprised the Bloods aren’t here.
[2018/02/18 12:43] Aposiopesis Fullstop: But, at the same time… if he saw something in you, you’d know that even if it WASN’T actually there… it could be.
[2018/02/18 12:44] Aposiopesis Fullstop: He’d vouch for you.
[2018/02/18 12:44] Sohma G. Dawling (sohma.dix): IB is really tore up.
[2018/02/18 12:44] NeoBokrug Elytis: Everyone is. :C
[2018/02/18 12:44] Dexter Bogdanovich: were getting older^^
[2018/02/18 12:44] Aposiopesis Fullstop: The original Trade Post was the first place I ever belonged in The Wastelands. I think it was Kezz who invited me; I think I was worried Jubal would be pissed at him for doing so. But I believe he said it was Jubal’s idea..
[2018/02/18 12:45] Dassina Andel: Heh, he made me into one hell of a Trader. Gonna wear this badge he gave me with pride.
[2018/02/18 12:45] Grady Echegaray: I have to go
[2018/02/18 12:45] Grady Echegaray: be well friends <3
[2018/02/18 12:45] Aposiopesis Fullstop: Good seeing you, Grady. <3
[2018/02/18 12:45] NeoBokrug Elytis: Thank you for coming Grady
[2018/02/18 12:45] Baal (houndstrikerx6): tc
[2018/02/18 12:46] Akiko Thursday: You, too, Grady. <3
[2018/02/18 12:46] Pietro Moskvitch: Take care, Grady. Good to see you.
[2018/02/18 12:46] NickCitrus: tc
[2018/02/18 12:46] The Digger (sandusky.kayvon): Take care Grady πŸ™‚
[2018/02/18 12:46] Aposiopesis Fullstop: Stubborn as he was, he did change, over time. Less Fallout, more of his own thing. He even let Mutants into the second Trade Post!
[2018/02/18 12:46] Dexter Bogdanovich: hehehe
[2018/02/18 12:47] The Digger (sandusky.kayvon): I think one of my first encounters with Ironblood and Jubal was the two of them stomping around in Power Armor
[2018/02/18 12:47] Aposiopesis Fullstop: Hahaha
[2018/02/18 12:47] Kezz Mauriac: He never left that thing for months
[2018/02/18 12:49] NeoBokrug Elytis: I remember people movin’ the masheen to the first trade post.
[2018/02/18 12:50] Pietro Moskvitch: Yeah, IB basically said he’s just remembering him his own way. I can respect that.
[2018/02/18 12:50] NeoBokrug Elytis: Way back in the far times.
[2018/02/18 12:50] NeoBokrug Elytis: And the tin man blowin’ it up
[2018/02/18 12:50] Dassina Andel: The Brominite Raid
[2018/02/18 12:50] Dassina Andel: A LOT of ammo got used that day…
[2018/02/18 12:51] Aposiopesis Fullstop: Man, that Brominite attack was nuts. That whole RP was. I remember worrying that Jubal would end up on the side of Gill, just out of enemy-of-my-enemy logic.
[2018/02/18 12:52] Aposiopesis Fullstop: But noooo way. Jubal was one of the first to put a bounty on the Old Man’s head – and wherever he came back, that bounty poster still went up.
[2018/02/18 12:52] The Digger (sandusky.kayvon) grins
[2018/02/18 12:53] Pietro Moskvitch: I remember Gill but I don’t remember how it wrapped up. Maybe I left before that finished.
[2018/02/18 12:53] Kezz Mauriac: We both had.
[2018/02/18 12:53] Aposiopesis Fullstop: It never did! He’s still out there, that bastard!
[2018/02/18 12:54] Aposiopesis Fullstop: We tried to run him off, and he’s never been seen again – but the Tin Man hasn’t, either, except to vaporize a few people who needed it. πŸ˜‰
[2018/02/18 12:54] Irk (shannonwilsonbell): I also have to go. I didn’t know Jubal beyond him letting me use his places for comic book sets. But I can tell that, if he was loved like this by all of you people, he was aces or better. Be well everyone.
[2018/02/18 12:54] Aposiopesis Fullstop: Thanks for coming, Irk. <3
[2018/02/18 12:54] NeoBokrug Elytis: Thanks for coming Irk
[2018/02/18 12:54] Akiko Thursday: Thanks for being here, Irk. Take care.
[2018/02/18 12:55] The Digger (sandusky.kayvon): Take care Irk
[2018/02/18 12:55] Pietro Moskvitch nods to Irk.
[2018/02/18 12:56] Aposiopesis Fullstop: This is one of the comics that was set, in part, at the Junkyard Trade Post: http://samwyx.com/secretmenu/ABIGGERFISHsmall.pdf
[2018/02/18 12:57] The Digger (sandusky.kayvon): Thanks Apo πŸ™‚
[2018/02/18 12:57] The Digger (sandusky.kayvon): Here’s the History of The Trade Post as written by Jubal that i put up on the Press blog long ago: http://press.the-wastelands.org/the-library/the-history-of-the-trade-post/
[2018/02/18 12:57] Akiko Thursday: I wish you could filter inventory by creator. I can’t find all the notecards with his stories.
[2018/02/18 12:57] Aposiopesis Fullstop: Jubal had a history for everything. He even had a history for Firecracker! Cola!
[2018/02/18 12:58] Sohma G. Dawling (sohma.dix): you can
[2018/02/18 12:58] Sohma G. Dawling (sohma.dix): will PM
[2018/02/18 12:58] Aposiopesis Fullstop: http://wiki.the-wastelands.org/Firecracker!_Cola
[2018/02/18 12:58] Akiko Thursday: on fS?
[2018/02/18 12:59] Wasteland Drifter (wastelanddrifter) lights the clay pipe, let the smoke rise as a link to the spirits beyond the sky.
[2018/02/18 12:59] Aposiopesis Fullstop grins.
[2018/02/18 12:59] The Digger (sandusky.kayvon): Hey there Harvey
[2018/02/18 13:00] Akiko Thursday: lol oh no
[2018/02/18 13:00] Aposiopesis Fullstop: Heya, GutterBlood; hey, Harvey
[2018/02/18 13:00] Akiko Thursday: https://i.gyazo.com/0744285c8e48c62fd7534cc2237e1c70.jpg


[2018/02/18 13:00] Harvey Jillybean: Hello gang
[2018/02/18 13:00] Pietro Moskvitch: GB, you made it.
[2018/02/18 13:00] The Digger (sandusky.kayvon): and Gutterblood πŸ™‚
[2018/02/18 13:00] Aposiopesis Fullstop: Hahaha!
[2018/02/18 13:00] GutterBlood Spoonhammer: hey guys
[2018/02/18 13:00] Kezz Mauriac: Hey GB
[2018/02/18 13:00] Sohma G. Dawling (sohma.dix): G to the B
[2018/02/18 13:01] Aposiopesis Fullstop: https://www.flickr.com/photos/fullstop/33799107994/

Jubal
[2018/02/18 13:02] Harvey Jillybean: That’s a good photo
[2018/02/18 13:02] Kezz Mauriac: A real good one.
[2018/02/18 13:02] Aposiopesis Fullstop: I guess that’s the last pic I have. Not IC, at that point, but: Jubal Quintus, last seen at The Oasis. Probably still out there somewhere. Keep an eye out. Witness him.
[2018/02/18 13:03] Baal (houndstrikerx6): 0_o….
[2018/02/18 13:03] Aposiopesis Fullstop: And, returned.
[2018/02/18 13:03] Baal (houndstrikerx6): A bit too early to go out with a bang if you ask me…
[2018/02/18 13:04] Aposiopesis Fullstop: Guess it’s just trying to be even more like old times out here…
[2018/02/18 13:04] Sohma G. Dawling (sohma.dix): has anybody seen Molly?
[2018/02/18 13:05] Aposiopesis Fullstop: She was online yesterday, but I didn’t see her directly.
[2018/02/18 13:05] Pietro Moskvitch: May he ride eternal, shiny and chrome.
[2018/02/18 13:05] Aposiopesis Fullstop: I think, like Ironblood, she’s just doing her own thing in her own way.
[2018/02/18 13:05] Sohma G. Dawling (sohma.dix): I can understand that <3 it’s tough
[2018/02/18 13:05] Aposiopesis Fullstop: Yar.
[2018/02/18 13:05] NeoBokrug Elytis: Can we post these logs on the press blog?
[2018/02/18 13:06] Aposiopesis Fullstop: If everyone’s okay with that, sure. And assuming the dang site deigns to let me log in today… Haha.
[2018/02/18 13:07] Dassina Andel: Good with me.
[2018/02/18 13:07] Pietro Moskvitch: no problems here
[2018/02/18 13:07] Kezz Mauriac: Absolutely.
[2018/02/18 13:08] Wasteland Drifter (wastelanddrifter) accepts this.
[2018/02/18 13:08] Dexter Bogdanovich nods
[2018/02/18 13:08] Harvey Jillybean: of course
[2018/02/18 13:08] Aposiopesis Fullstop: Is there anything else anyone would like to say? I’ve got one more thing – well, two, sort of.
[2018/02/18 13:09] Aposiopesis Fullstop: And one is sort of good for a closer, is all.
[2018/02/18 13:09] Sohma G. Dawling (sohma.dix): its lame and simple. here goes
[2018/02/18 13:09] Kezz Mauriac: Got tons to say. Just not the words for it.
[2018/02/18 13:09] Aposiopesis Fullstop nods.
[2018/02/18 13:09] NeoBokrug Elytis: I wish I could say more, but congealing words is hard.
[2018/02/18 13:10] GutterBlood Spoonhammer: Jubal was a great guy here in sl and out, was a great rl friend to my brother and a big inspiration to a lot of people. He will be missed.
[2018/02/18 13:10] Pietro Moskvitch: sadness makes mouths molasses
[2018/02/18 13:11] Sohma G. Dawling (sohma.dix): i really miss him. when i first came to sl it wa sonly a few months before the wastes opened. when it arrived i would take my “daily constitutionals” but walking the whole thing. never interacting. Jubal got me to interact here and there. I will still be here often, but the wind will seem to hit harder, the sun will burn hotter, and it will feel a bit more hollow for me. but i’ll still be here and hoping that i catch his scent in the corners.
[2018/02/18 13:11] Pietro Moskvitch: hear hear, GB
[2018/02/18 13:11] Aposiopesis Fullstop raises a glass to that.
[2018/02/18 13:11] Aposiopesis Fullstop: I’m glad you’ll still be here, Sohma. <3
[2018/02/18 13:11] Wasteland Drifter (wastelanddrifter): At the risk of sounding trite, may he rest here in our hearts.
[2018/02/18 13:11] GutterBlood Spoonhammer: absolutely
[2018/02/18 13:12] Aposiopesis Fullstop: There’s no such thing as trite in times like these. Even a fistful of rubble is precious now.
[2018/02/18 13:12] Sohma G. Dawling (sohma.dix): nothing trite about that, drifter. it’s wonderful sentiment
[2018/02/18 13:12] GutterBlood Spoonhammer: i still remember the days just chilling with him at the tradepost some of my best memories in sl
[2018/02/18 13:12] Kezz Mauriac: Truth can’t be trite.
[2018/02/18 13:12] Aposiopesis Fullstop: Same. Just sitting at Turps, bullshitting.
[2018/02/18 13:12] Aposiopesis Fullstop: I still have the most incredible logs from this one night of drunken RP….
[2018/02/18 13:12] Sohma G. Dawling (sohma.dix): oh and one mor ething from RL and i will post it as the time approaches in discord
[2018/02/18 13:12] Pietro Moskvitch: The Trade Post was great. I wish I had spent more time hanging out with him than compulsively hunting trash.
[2018/02/18 13:13] Pietro Moskvitch: ugh I guess I’ll join the friggin’ discord.
[2018/02/18 13:13] Kezz Mauriac: And you’ll like it too.
[2018/02/18 13:13] Akiko Thursday: Planning story arcs and shooting the sheeit and bitching about everything while I helped him and IB out with random stuff at the new TP was the best times I’ve had in the wastelands.
[2018/02/18 13:13] Pietro Moskvitch: I hate discord.
[2018/02/18 13:13] Sohma G. Dawling (sohma.dix): but i will be helping his RL wife to sort his stuff. what she can’t bare to keep we will be selling off and putting the money towards his children. a LOT of it is post apoc memorbilia
[2018/02/18 13:14] Aposiopesis Fullstop: Thanks, Sohma.
[2018/02/18 13:14] Aposiopesis Fullstop: Oh! Also… if you were looking for other donations… this is where they were hoping to get contributious, in lieu of flowers: https://donatenow.networkforgood.org/noahsark?code=2015websitedonation
[2018/02/18 13:14] NeoBokrug Elytis: Sohma: Let any of us know, and we’ll also put it in the announcements.
[2018/02/18 13:15] Sohma G. Dawling (sohma.dix): will do ^_^
[2018/02/18 13:15] Wasteland Drifter (wastelanddrifter) puts his palms together and spreads them out and down perpendicular to each other.
[2018/02/18 13:15] Wasteland Drifter (wastelanddrifter) picks up and raises bottle.
[2018/02/18 13:15] Wasteland Drifter (wastelanddrifter): “Here’s to you.”
[2018/02/18 13:16] Aposiopesis Fullstop raises her glass again.
[2018/02/18 13:16] Sohma G. Dawling (sohma.dix) cheers with her firecracker bottle
[2018/02/18 13:16] GutterBlood Spoonhammer: any time you get two rare crates in the same run you will know old man jubal is smiling upon you
[2018/02/18 13:16] Aposiopesis Fullstop: <3
[2018/02/18 13:16] Sohma G. Dawling (sohma.dix) cackles
[2018/02/18 13:17] Dassina Andel: Heh, yup.
[2018/02/18 13:17] Pietro Moskvitch: πŸ˜€
[2018/02/18 13:18] Aposiopesis Fullstop: It took me a long while to even remotely condense my thoughts about Jubal specifically. But here’s the closest I could get.
[2018/02/18 13:18] Akiko Thursday: I say we wipe our tears, punch each other up, and pour out cups of our blood in tribute. The last thing Jubal said to me about currrent RP was that it was “too love fest.” That’s a true Wastelander there. And a brilliant storyteller. So, get it together, wasters, and make the cleverest archvillain we ever had proud.
[2018/02/18 13:19] Sohma G. Dawling (sohma.dix): i will punch you so hard, akiko
[2018/02/18 13:19] Aposiopesis Fullstop: Jubal – We knew each other best in an imaginary place. A broken place. A place that you and I and all of us effectively believed into being.
[2018/02/18 13:19] Pietro Moskvitch: the best way to love your fellow wastelanders is by giving them scrap. at a high rate of speed from the barrel of a gun.
[2018/02/18 13:19] Aposiopesis Fullstop: (It never was quite real enough for you, I know.)
[2018/02/18 13:19] GutterBlood Spoonhammer: i have to share this
[2018/02/18 13:19] Aposiopesis Fullstop waits.
[2018/02/18 13:19] Pietro Moskvitch: Sorry.
[2018/02/18 13:19] Akiko Thursday: I know you will, bb. You always do. <3
[2018/02/18 13:19] GutterBlood Spoonhammer: i looked on facebook at our last convo and i was telling him how i forgot my lunch and had to eat from the vending machines at work
[2018/02/18 13:20] GutterBlood Spoonhammer: he said
[2018/02/18 13:20] GutterBlood Spoonhammer: “Oh no vending machine hot pockets, this is how your wasteland tale begins”
[2018/02/18 13:21] Sohma G. Dawling (sohma.dix): hehehehehhe
[2018/02/18 13:21] Harvey Jillybean: πŸ™‚
[2018/02/18 13:21] Kezz Mauriac: Hahaha
[2018/02/18 13:21] Aposiopesis Fullstop: Haha! …Man, I did not even know that the Venn diagram of “Hot Pockets” and “Vending Machine Food” met up. That is terrifying and accurate.
[2018/02/18 13:21] The Digger (sandusky.kayvon) snickers
[2018/02/18 13:21] Pietro Moskvitch: eating hot pickets during a nuclear apocalypse IS one of the documented methods of becoming an orc-looking super mutant.
[2018/02/18 13:21] Pietro Moskvitch: pockets*
[2018/02/18 13:22] Kezz Mauriac: *writes hot pockets on the grocery list*
[2018/02/18 13:22] GutterBlood Spoonhammer: even when the hurricanes came around he tried to convince my brother to bring everyone up from florida to stay with him
[2018/02/18 13:22] GutterBlood Spoonhammer: thats how im gunna remember him the toughguy with a soft spot
[2018/02/18 13:23] Aposiopesis Fullstop: πŸ˜€
[2018/02/18 13:23] Rax Stooge: Most tough guys are soft spot fellas
[2018/02/18 13:23] Akiko Thursday: I hadn’t even checked our last fb convo.
[2018/02/18 13:23] Akiko Thursday: Looks like last thing he said was
[2018/02/18 13:23] Akiko Thursday: “don’t let the fuckers get you down and feel free to use my house anytime. It’s jsut sitting there now”
[2018/02/18 13:23] Pietro Moskvitch: that is bizarrely apropos.
[2018/02/18 13:24] The Gathering of Tribes Poster: listen(…)strMsg = rdy
[2018/02/18 13:24] NickCitrus: I’d like to thank Jubal for his encouragement and kind words. Panpot definitely owes a lot to him. I wouldn’t be the same rper if I hadn’t met him. I’ll remember him every time Panpot asks for some juice. <3
[2018/02/18 13:24] Aposiopesis Fullstop: Hahaha!
[2018/02/18 13:24] Akiko Thursday: He loved PanPot
[2018/02/18 13:25] Akiko Thursday: Said really good things about that character, Nick.
[2018/02/18 13:25] NickCitrus: I’m glad to hear that πŸ™‚
[2018/02/18 13:27] Pietro Moskvitch: Seriously, though, I think we should all meditate on Akikok’s paste from FB for a minute before Apo finishes up.
[2018/02/18 13:27] Pietro Moskvitch: Akiko’s*
[2018/02/18 13:27] Aposiopesis Fullstop: Just let me know when you guys are ready.
[2018/02/18 13:29] Kezz Mauriac: Not speaking for anyone else, but I’m ready.
[2018/02/18 13:29] Pietro Moskvitch nods.
[2018/02/18 13:29] Sohma G. Dawling (sohma.dix): i think we’re good
[2018/02/18 13:29] Wasteland Drifter (wastelanddrifter): Ready for what?
[2018/02/18 13:29] Aposiopesis Fullstop: I’d been trying to share something I wrote a bit more directly for and about Jubal.
[2018/02/18 13:30] Pietro Moskvitch: For her epileulogy.
[2018/02/18 13:30] Dexter Bogdanovich: dict error here with that
[2018/02/18 13:30] Aposiopesis Fullstop: Jubal –

We knew each other best in an imaginary place. A broken place. A place that you and I and all of us effectively believed into being.

(It never was quite real enough for you, I know.)

There, you were a man like the sands themselves. Somehow both foundational and fugitive, you came and you went by your own winds and whims – sometimes in a slow seep, and sometimes in a sandstorm. You flowed, and yet you were implacable. You were the stubborn Ozymandias of storied ancient works; you were the steady force that eroded all monoliths.
[2018/02/18 13:31] Aposiopesis Fullstop: You had, in many ways, grit.
[2018/02/18 13:31] Aposiopesis Fullstop: Your grit was traction against slippery slopes of argument and illogic. Your grit was sand in the gas tanks of tyrants. Your grit could abrade, but could polish. With grit like that, even an empty sack could stand up against floodwaters.
[2018/02/18 13:31] Aposiopesis Fullstop: You expected more of everything and everyone.
[2018/02/18 13:31] Aposiopesis Fullstop: And yet you were one of the first to see me there, back in a time when I barely acknowledged my own existence. You gave me a place to belong. A title to bear. A purpose to serve. A tiny, tenacious, glimmering notion that maybe more was possible.
[2018/02/18 13:32] Aposiopesis Fullstop: You helped believe me into being.
[2018/02/18 13:32] Aposiopesis Fullstop: Later, inspired by that imaginary world and the archetypes within it, I would write out a thematic reinterpretation of the Tarot. I tried to draw them, too – awkward scrawlings on the backs of index cards, all of it too crude even for a post-apocalypse. All of these drawings were drawn from that world. And the Hermit was drawn after you.
[2018/02/18 13:32] Aposiopesis Fullstop: You came and you went and you came back again. Robes dusty, but untorn. Eyes scarred, but open. Bearing a working flashlight – no crude torch or candle. Pointedly NOT bearing the staff of the patriarch. A seeker, a seer, casting wide your light. Forever following your own principles, even when they led you elsewhere, and even when you followed them alone.
[2018/02/18 13:33] Aposiopesis Fullstop: (No, I didn’t follow. But it was because I’d been learning to believe myself into being, too – and to find and follow my own lights.)
[2018/02/18 13:33] Aposiopesis Fullstop: Even when you inevitably followed your path away from that place, myriad small elements of you and your work always remained there, tenacious and glimmering. They still do. They always will.
[2018/02/18 13:33] Aposiopesis Fullstop: Just as they remain in the real.
[2018/02/18 13:33] Aposiopesis Fullstop: Dust turns to dust, and your dust is still with us.
[2018/02/18 13:33] Aposiopesis Fullstop: Where the hand of a worker is weathered and cracked, your dust is there in the lines to soothe it.
[2018/02/18 13:33] Rax Stooge: .
[2018/02/18 13:33] Aposiopesis Fullstop: Where the brow of a friend is creased with a furious vexation, your dust is there to smooth it.
[2018/02/18 13:33] Aposiopesis Fullstop: Where statues crumble and fascists fall, your dust is there to smother it.
[2018/02/18 13:34] Aposiopesis Fullstop: Where some adorable random animal is rolling in the dirt to play or to take a dustbath, your dust is there to cover it.
[2018/02/18 13:34] Aposiopesis Fullstop: Somewhere deep in a desk drawer are dozens of ill-drawn index cards. They, too, gather dust. I looked through them again just now, after I heard the news.
[2018/02/18 13:34] Aposiopesis Fullstop: And, of course, one was missing.
[2018/02/18 13:34] Aposiopesis Fullstop: Somewhere, even the crudely-drawn Hermit is wandering.
[2018/02/18 13:34] Aposiopesis Fullstop: Someday, when I expect it least and need it most, I suspect it’ll turn up again.
[2018/02/18 13:34] Aposiopesis Fullstop: Thank you for everything, Jubal.
[2018/02/18 13:34] Aposiopesis Fullstop: May you ride eternal, shiny and chrome.
[2018/02/18 13:36] Aposiopesis Fullstop: I’d like to invite everyone to participate in one last bit of ceremony. A sort of 21-gun salute.
[2018/02/18 13:36] Pietro Moskvitch: Shiny and chrome!
[2018/02/18 13:36] Sheala (sheala.olivieri): <3
[2018/02/18 13:36] Aposiopesis Fullstop: If you don’t have a current-gen Wastelands weapon, ask around; I’m sure some of us have spares.
[2018/02/18 13:37] NeoBokrug Elytis: If you have a weapon, and need an ammo, I’ll supply it
[2018/02/18 13:37] Kezz Mauriac: Don’t know what the current gen is, but I doubt I have one.
[2018/02/18 13:37] Aposiopesis Fullstop: Neo – could you maybe plonk an Arcade Masheen down so we don’t have to cam?
[2018/02/18 13:37] Baal (houndstrikerx6): πŸ˜€
[2018/02/18 13:37] Sheala (sheala.olivieri): I’m afraid I don’t have a gun
[2018/02/18 13:37] Harvey Jillybean: I would like to borrow a weapon and join in on the salute for Jubal, it’s a great idea
[2018/02/18 13:38] Harvey Jillybean: Nick?
[2018/02/18 13:38] Harvey Jillybean: Got a spare?
[2018/02/18 13:38] NickCitrus: Lemme check
[2018/02/18 13:38] Wasteland Drifter (wastelanddrifter) got this message:
[13:37] WL: Arcade Masheen: Some say there’s a crate fairy leaving crates in the caves of Burnt Oak. Others say it’s just Jubal Quintus and our other patrons at Patreon. If you enjoy this game, please consider becoming a patron of The Wastelands.
[2018/02/18 13:38] Aposiopesis Fullstop: I don’t have too many sares, myself.
[2018/02/18 13:38] Aposiopesis Fullstop: Awwww man. <3
[2018/02/18 13:38] The Wastelands: You spot Dassina on the horizon.

[2018/02/18 13:39] The Wastelands: KittyKat has wandered closer to you.
[2018/02/18 13:39] The Wastelands: In the distance you see Sandusky cresting over a sand dune.
[2018/02/18 13:39] The Wastelands: You smell the familiar odor of Kezz on the winds.
[2018/02/18 13:39] The Wastelands: You become aware of creamysoda’s presence.
[2018/02/18 13:39] Pietro Moskvitch: I don’t have any of the current gen, myself, I don’t think. But that’s alright. I’ll fire guns in spirit. πŸ˜‰
[2018/02/18 13:39] The Wastelands: You become aware of Sheala’s presence.
[2018/02/18 13:39] Dassina Andel: Pew Pew.
[2018/02/18 13:39] Aposiopesis Fullstop: I’ve got even fewer spares than I thought, actually. Hah.

[2018/02/18 13:39] Kezz Mauriac: Might as well try and see if anything works.
[2018/02/18 13:40] WL%3A Slugthrower: You have one minute in which to restock your weapon, your weapon will be disabled until then.
[2018/02/18 13:40] Rax Stooge: I dont think ive even seen a WL: gun of any sort in action before.
[2018/02/18 13:40] Aposiopesis Fullstop: Maybe all line up back here, to reduce the chance of friendly fire… Heh.
[2018/02/18 13:40] Baal (houndstrikerx6): Theres a first time for everything
[2018/02/18 13:40] Rax Stooge: Its true
[2018/02/18 13:41] WL%3A Slugthrower: Restocked!

[2018/02/18 13:42] Pietro Moskvitch: most of us don’t know math anyway.
[2018/02/18 13:42] Baal (houndstrikerx6): Is it temporary BB?
[2018/02/18 13:42] Wasteland Drifter (wastelanddrifter) has a hunters rifle.
[2018/02/18 13:42] Wasteland Drifter (wastelanddrifter): Another one I mean
[2018/02/18 13:42] Aposiopesis Fullstop: All my spares are melee things. Haha.

[2018/02/18 13:43] BB Bjorkdjork (bridget.boissel): I gave to kezz, he gave it back
[2018/02/18 13:43] BB Bjorkdjork (bridget.boissel): ahh ok great
[2018/02/18 13:43] Pietro Moskvitch: okay, good.

[2018/02/18 13:44] Dassina Andel: I resemble that remark.
[2018/02/18 13:44] Kezz Mauriac: (best kind of cats)
[2018/02/18 13:44] Aposiopesis Fullstop: :3
[2018/02/18 13:44] Pietro Moskvitch: I can’t think of a better kind of cat.
[2018/02/18 13:44] The Digger (sandusky.kayvon): i also have a slugthrower if someone needs one
