Community Meeting: June 28, 2020


Below is a short summary of the latest Community Meeting, followed by its chat logs – which have been gently edited for formatting, to put questions and answers in bold for easy skimming, and to omit greetings and farewells and other such asides.  Meetings are hosted by Estate owner NeoBokrug Elytis at 2:00 pm on the last Saturday of every month at The Potato Farm in The Wastelands, and the discussion is typically divided into three main topics: Estate, Game, and Roleplay & Events.  Everyone is welcome to attend!


LAND:
➳ The human behind Benjamin Bigdipper, a longtime member of the community, passed away on June 10th, and a memorial service was held at The Bunker on Saturday the 13th. He will be remembered.
➳ Neo’s main projects at the moment are the Visitor Center and the Burnt Oak rebuild: it will be a layered region, similar to The Sand Seas, and will portray the road to the ruined city of Northgate.
➳ We’re within half a percent of the occupancy target Neo set late last year!  As long as this holds out, major cost-saving changes to the Estate should not be necessary.
➳ The Endorsements and IP Blacklist guide will soon be updated: some previously-unrealized game rips have been found on the estate, and will need to be removed.
➳ The major news Neo teased at the last meeting is still up in the air – but, if confirmed, it will take priority over other Wastelands projects until it’s complete.
➳ The Wastelands has sponsored Bad Lands, a post-apocalyptic shopping event run by Aenigma.
➳ If you know of other thematic shopping events that would be a good fit for sponsorship by The Wastelands, let Neo know!

GAME:
➳ A simple dice roller has been added to the HUD!  It listens on channel 4011, and can roll any number of dice with any number of sides.  For example, to roll three 20-sided dice, type the following into local chat:  /4011 3d20
➳ The Environmental Enhancement Project released by LL is still missing some functionality: certain variables cannot be changed by scripts, limiting Neo’s ability to create certain planned features.
➳ Neo is working with the functions that do work however, and the first project in the works will be using EEP to adjust the regional Windlight cloud cover to reflect the RP weather.
➳ The Wild Plants system is still in the works, and plant growth will be influenced by RP weather.

ROLEPLAY & EVENTS:
➳ The Burnt Oak rebuild will also feature a new RP-only solo quest.  Individuals’ choices will affect their own options in the future, and the overall choices of the community will guide the story arc in the long term.
➳ Neo has created a template that will allow users to put roleplay characters on the Wiki, and it should be released soon.
➳ The June Buzzard Hunt has only a few days remaining!  Hunt Buzzards and send Irk confirmation of your kills – the top hunters will win some fabulous prizes!  See this page for more details.
➳ The next all-day festival will be the Rondyvoo, to be held sometime in early- to mid-August.
➳ Mutant Drum Circles still take place every Monday at 6pm, and the next RP edition will take place on Monday the 6th.
➳ The next Barrelhead Bazaar will take place on Saturday, July 4 at 11am.
➳ Booze & Blather casual RP hangouts happen every Thursday at 6pm.
➳ Apo is still looking to gather information about the spiritual practices of characters in The Wastelands – ideally, through a series of in-character interviews for the Press.  If your character has such a spiritual practice or belief system, and if you’d like to spread the word, get in touch with Apo to arrange an interview!
➳ Want to host an event?  Let Neo know the event details by Wednesday night and he’ll add it to the announcements!


 

I. THE ESTATE

 NeoBokrug Elytis: I think we’ll start! With everything going on I don’t expect too many more people to trickle in, but this is still a nice turnout, so thank you all for coming.
NeoBokrug Elytis: I will be covering what happened in the last month with regards to the three main aspects of the estate, with time for questions in between. 🙂
NeoBokrug Elytis: Starting with estate and land:
NeoBokrug Elytis: I don’t know if it fits here or is more appropriate in events, but I like to think that ever Wastelander is a vital component of the estate. Earlier this month the human behind Benjamin Bigdipper passed away. We had an inworld memorial services that brought about 40+ of his inworld friends who could make it, but I know for a fact quite a few had other IRL obligations. So I want to say thank you all for attending that. It’s always really sad to lose another Wastelander. :C
ɱʋʈֆƴ Ƙαɭίɠλѡɚ (mutsy.kaligawa): It was nice to see so many coming together for Ben 🙂
Aposiopesis Fullstop nods.
NeoBokrug Elytis: As far as occupancy goes, late last year I set some goals to meet otherwise we’d have to make changes to the estate. Right now I can say we’re close enough to that goal (within half a percent), so that is satisfactory to me. I hope that we can maintain this occupancy for a while, and even better improve upon it. But if you need to tier down or let go of your land because of everything going on, please don’t hesitate. I know real life always takes precedence before second life. I don’t want you not eating because you have virtual land. 🙂
Irk (shannonwilsonbell): Food is overrated.
RMarie Beedit (rmarie.beedit): (but sacrificing a starbuck’s coffee, maybe? wink)
Aposiopesis Fullstop: Land is good lunch!
ɱʋʈֆƴ Ƙαɭίɠλѡɚ (mutsy.kaligawa): ooh wow 🙂
Aposiopesis Fullstop: That’s great to hear, though! I’d been anxious!
ɱʋʈֆƴ Ƙαɭίɠλѡɚ (mutsy.kaligawa) nibbles on a peanut for her dinner…
NeoBokrug Elytis: Currently we’re still working on the Visitor Center of the estate, with some pretty decent progress since last month. If you’re a resident and you want to see the progress, just visit the area where you pay tier and cam out and down a bit. 🙂
Mayo von Schrott (myotis.draconia): half a peanut please
BlackWidow Sinister: saw that
NeoBokrug Elytis: We’ll still be picking at that as time allows.
ɱʋʈֆƴ Ƙαɭίɠλѡɚ (mutsy.kaligawa): neat
ɱʋʈֆƴ Ƙαɭίɠλѡɚ (mutsy.kaligawa): I need to look at that 😮
Aposiopesis Fullstop: Some really great-looking work so far!
ɱʋʈֆƴ Ƙαɭίɠλѡɚ (mutsy.kaligawa): That should hopefully boost traffic and encourage new players and even residents! 😀
NeoBokrug Elytis: Last month we got the dark layers are deployed on every region, this past month I’ve had to make a few alterations to scripted EEP effects because of some errors on my end that made me think the functions were broke — but in reality I just sucked. So those are all fixed now.
Vikki Placebo: 🙂
NeoBokrug Elytis: Traffic is kind of a broken metric, so I don’t really pay attention to that.
ɱʋʈֆƴ Ƙαɭίɠλѡɚ (mutsy.kaligawa): :3
Aposiopesis Fullstop: 😀
NeoBokrug Elytis: However, I have bought an Ad-Board space at a recent post-apocalyptic themed shopping event, so we may see some new faces wandering around — moreso than usual.
Aposiopesis Fullstop: 😀
Irk (shannonwilsonbell): Cool
NeoBokrug Elytis: APo made the graphic for us. 🙂
ɱʋʈֆƴ Ƙαɭίɠλѡɚ (mutsy.kaligawa): Awesome 😀
Verity Goodnight: 😀
BlackWidow Sinister: what’s the event?
Aposiopesis Fullstop: (Can I say that I designed the graphic? I designed the graphic!)
Aposiopesis Fullstop: Haha, beat me to it!
ɱʋʈֆƴ Ƙαɭίɠλѡɚ (mutsy.kaligawa): wooot
Vikki Placebo: Woohoo!
NeoBokrug Elytis: It is the Bad Lands even by Aenigma here: http://maps.secondlife.com/secondlife/Vale%20Acadia/131/40/3501
Wasteland Drifter (wastelanddrifter): I saw it at the event
RMarie Beedit (rmarie.beedit): thanks
NeoBokrug Elytis: There’s some interesting stuff that’s thematic there, but there’s also a couple game rips, so watch out. 🙁
ɱʋʈֆƴ Ƙαɭίɠλѡɚ (mutsy.kaligawa): 😮
Alpha (alpha.sharpesworth): and sometimes, you just get some strays walking through…
Alpha (alpha.sharpesworth) winks
NeoBokrug Elytis: It’s the two bone crown looking things that are the same but different textures. Speaking of game rips, last month I was working on re-doing the parcel decorator, and doing quite a bit of shopping.
ɱʋʈֆƴ Ƙαɭίɠλѡɚ (mutsy.kaligawa): I’d love to do some graphics too for the wastes ^^
NeoBokrug Elytis: While shopping I came across some new things that are for certain game rips, but aren’t on the IP blacklist of the estate.
Aposiopesis Fullstop: Your WL13B poster was so amazing, Mutsy!
Vikki Placebo nods!
ɱʋʈֆƴ Ƙαɭίɠλѡɚ (mutsy.kaligawa): ^^;
Irk (shannonwilsonbell): Yeah great poster
NeoBokrug Elytis: The IP Blacklist and Endorsements is an often overlooked clause of the covenant, and it covers about 20+ “creators” who post post-apocalyptic content to the marketplace. This content that’s on the blacklist is really just game rips.
ɱʋʈֆƴ Ƙαɭίɠλѡɚ (mutsy.kaligawa): Thanks :3
RMarie Beedit (rmarie.beedit): epe
RMarie Beedit (rmarie.beedit): i mean wow
Wasteland Drifter (wastelanddrifter): “”creators””
ɱʋʈֆƴ Ƙαɭίɠλѡɚ (mutsy.kaligawa): 😮
Mayo von Schrott (myotis.draconia): epe \o/
ɱʋʈֆƴ Ƙαɭίɠλѡɚ (mutsy.kaligawa): ahh yeah
RMarie Beedit (rmarie.beedit): new wow
Aposiopesis Fullstop: It’s so frustrating that you can’t flag an item unless you’ve purchased it.
Mayo von Schrott (myotis.draconia): the opposite of epe is qiq
Irk (shannonwilsonbell): hahaha
ɱʋʈֆƴ Ƙαɭίɠλѡɚ (mutsy.kaligawa): xD
NeoBokrug Elytis: So I will be updating our IP blacklist and endorsements list this upcoming month. I have spoken with a few people who heavily use some of the newer stuff to give them advanced warning, and they’re going to change thier builds. I will be allowing anyone else some extra time to make changes, but once the new list is up for a month, I’ll give the usual 48 hours before I return it for you. :C
RMarie Beedit (rmarie.beedit): qiq + 1 = wow
NeoBokrug Elytis: I’ve also found a lot of new creators who make original post apocalyptic stuff as well, so the endorsements list will get an update.
Aposiopesis Fullstop: Ooh, yay!
Verity Goodnight: yesssss
Irk (shannonwilsonbell): I appreciate the lists, I can’t tell what is stolen from other games
Verity Goodnight: same
RMarie Beedit (rmarie.beedit): ok and that is already linked from the covenant?
NeoBokrug Elytis: When I can I try to cite evendience, but more recently I’ve needed to watch Youtube let’s play videos of games to spot the content.
NeoBokrug Elytis: Yeah, it’s in the IP Blacklist section
ɱʋʈֆƴ Ƙαɭίɠλѡɚ (mutsy.kaligawa): wow 😮
Irk (shannonwilsonbell): Someone needs to rap their knuckles with a ruler.
NeoBokrug Elytis: The “big news” I hinted at last month is still in orbit. It is not a guaranteed thing that will happen, but I feel like we’ve got a 75% chance at it happening. Once it does I’ll let you all know.
Aposiopesis Fullstop: I like researching. If you want, I could try to find some snapshots to provide side-by-side evidence of what’s ripped?
NeoBokrug Elytis: This upcoming month my focus is working on rebuilding Burnt Oak and working on the Visitor Center.
NeoBokrug Elytis: Any questions about anything?
Irk (shannonwilsonbell): Can you tell us 75% of the big news?
Aposiopesis Fullstop: Hahaha!
ɱʋʈֆƴ Ƙαɭίɠλѡɚ (mutsy.kaligawa): Oh, what you got in mind for Burnt Oak?
ɱʋʈֆƴ Ƙαɭίɠλѡɚ (mutsy.kaligawa): haha Irk
NeoBokrug Elytis: Haha no, I don’t plan to reveal the plans until it’s 100%. I don’t want to get hopes up.
NeoBokrug Elytis: Not in 2020.
ɱʋʈֆƴ Ƙαɭίɠλѡɚ (mutsy.kaligawa): Aww
NeoBokrug Elytis: I could tell you what I think is ripped from what Apo, it’s a very hard job though.
NeoBokrug Elytis: Any other questions about estate stuff?
Vikki Placebo: I’d offer to take a look but haven’t played a lot of games
Mayo von Schrott (myotis.draconia): im playing Borderlands 3
Aposiopesis Fullstop: Worth a shot, though. And, hey, if a really close look makes it seem like they’re NOT the same model after all – maybe it could be taken back off the list!
Mayo von Schrott (myotis.draconia): with all DLCs
NeoBokrug Elytis: I think I may make a blog post on the press that gives me all the red flags as to why I think content may be ripped, which lacks the research into finding sources of why the content may be ripped.
ɱʋʈֆƴ Ƙαɭίɠλѡɚ (mutsy.kaligawa): You said rebuilding Burnt Oak, anything new you are going to add to it?
NeoBokrug Elytis: There’s some very simple rules actually.
Aposiopesis Fullstop: Oooh, that’d help.
ɱʋʈֆƴ Ƙαɭίɠλѡɚ (mutsy.kaligawa): Yeah 🙂
Verity Goodnight: that’d be good to read
Aposiopesis Fullstop: “Statues” are a good indication, I’ve noticed.
RMarie Beedit (rmarie.beedit): could even social engineer the list and just ask the creators in a fan-like way if it is from a game. They might say so.
NeoBokrug Elytis: I will be changing Burnt Oak to be the “road to north gate”, not the region name. But the whole region is going to get an overhaul. The cave system will be removed in favor of a road with branching paths to what could effectively be “North Gate”. For those who don’t know what “North Gate” is, it’s a fictional cirt (with skyscrapers, ghouls, ghasts, and zombies) north of THe Wastelands. We don’t go there. 🙂
Aposiopesis Fullstop: “Hmm, I ripped this model of a dude from a game, but I can’t actually rig it as an avatar or animate it as animesh – I’ll just sell it as a statue, that’s the ticket!”
Vikki Placebo: lol
NeoBokrug Elytis: The road will have 8 stops on it, residential areas for people to live.
Irk (shannonwilsonbell): Neat!
NeoBokrug Elytis: Kind of like the sand seas, kind of not.
Irk (shannonwilsonbell): as in layers?
NeoBokrug Elytis: I had to put that plan on pause last year because I needed to focus on contract (paycheck) work.
NeoBokrug Elytis: As in layers, yeah, but not the same. More confined.
Irk (shannonwilsonbell): \o/
Aposiopesis Fullstop: Some sort of barriers in place to keep people on the road and not wandering off into the sands?
NeoBokrug Elytis: Yeah
NeoBokrug Elytis: I am also going to look into straddling the Burnt Oak Drive-In across the border of North Yard, so we can share the load of the 20 avatar cap, but that will also require me to figure out how to do that without altering North Yard much.
NeoBokrug Elytis: ANy other questions about estate stuff?
Aposiopesis Fullstop: There used to just be a second screen in North Yard on the infrastructure land, din’t there?
Aposiopesis Fullstop: *didn’t
NeoBokrug Elytis: Yeah. But I have seen when asked, that people don’t want to move there.
Aposiopesis Fullstop: …Because of the screen?
NeoBokrug Elytis: Because it’s away from the main group.
Aposiopesis Fullstop: OH. People moving to watch the film over there.
Vikki Placebo: It is not as cozy over there :p
NeoBokrug Elytis: So I’ll be trying to address that a little when I re-do Burnt Oak
Aposiopesis Fullstop: As long as the chat repeater’s on, it’s fine – but if there isn’t a second screen, and the screen’s not on the same region, it can’t be seen?
NeoBokrug Elytis: It can be seen.
NeoBokrug Elytis: Just cam over
BlackWidow Sinister: cam
star (astarynite): at SL17B they have 4 sims meeting and people are separated but still pretty close at events
star (astarynite): literally an aisle with
star (astarynite): width
Aposiopesis Fullstop: Huh, I thought you had to open it up in VLC because you wouldn’t be able to see the screen otherwise. That’s a different matter, then.


II. THE GAME

NeoBokrug Elytis: Moving on to game stuff. This past month I threw a simple dice roller into the HUD for RP folks (and anyone really) to use.
RMarie Beedit (rmarie.beedit): that is cool
NeoBokrug Elytis: To use it: /4011 1d6
NeoBokrug Elytis: Where 4011 is the channel used for the rolls. 1 is the number of dice, 6 is the sides of dice.
NeoBokrug Elytis: Good for whatever random purpose you need it for.
Aposiopesis Fullstop: Gonna test that out for the Rondyvoo drinking game, I believe…. :V
Irk (shannonwilsonbell): it isn’t working for me just now
Irk (shannonwilsonbell): I must be dumming something
Dice: whispers: Aposiopesis Fullstop rolled (3d4) and the result was: 10.
NeoBokrug Elytis: I’ve also been playing with EEP functions in a newer version of the HUD to adjust existing region EEP settings to hopefully better reflect actual weather. However big chunks of actual EEP changing functionality are missing from LL still, so I can only do so much.
The Wastelands: In the distance you see astarynite cresting over a sand dune.
NeoBokrug Elytis: Its: “/4011 1d20”
NeoBokrug Elytis: No quotes
Dice: whispers: star rolled (1d20) and the result was: 1.
Aposiopesis Fullstop: Critical fail!
NeoBokrug Elytis: Critical fail
NeoBokrug Elytis: Haha
Irk (shannonwilsonbell): I’m formatting it right but I get nothing. It’s ok I’ll wonder about it later
Aposiopesis Fullstop: 😀
NeoBokrug Elytis: I’ll help with it later. 🙂
ɱʋʈֆƴ Ƙαɭίɠλѡɚ (mutsy.kaligawa): 😮
Dice: You cannot roll zero dice or zero sides: 2d0
Irk (shannonwilsonbell): it worked before for me
Dice: whispers: Aposiopesis Fullstop rolled (1d1) and the result was: 1.
Irk (shannonwilsonbell): so idk
NeoBokrug Elytis: THe first EEP related functions I want to change with the HUD is cloud cover and slightly adjusting the lighting to account for cloudcover.
Irk (shannonwilsonbell): But enough of my yackin’
The Wastelands: Mutsy has wandered closer to you.
Aposiopesis Fullstop: Oooooh…
NeoBokrug Elytis: And perhaps cloud direction.
NeoBokrug Elytis: Maybe where you got the HUD doesn’t have an updated HUD in it, so let me know.
Irk (shannonwilsonbell): ooo cloud cover!
Dice: whispers: ɱʋʈֆƴ Ƙαɭίɠλѡɚ rolled (5d9) and the result was: 20.
The Wastelands: You lost track of Mutsy.
star (astarynite): Cormac’s dice works
The Wastelands: You lost track of astarynite.
NeoBokrug Elytis: I really want to dig down into the ambiance things, but I require those other variables to be changable by LL, they’re not yet.
NeoBokrug Elytis: I am still working on the wild plants system. I am actually hooking it up into our weather system so it can account for weather in plants growths. 🙂
Verity Goodnight: ooh
Irk (shannonwilsonbell): EPE!
ɱʋʈֆƴ Ƙαɭίɠλѡɚ (mutsy.kaligawa): Gasp!
Aposiopesis Fullstop: 😀
NeoBokrug Elytis: AFK a bit, if you have questions for me about game stuff, let me know now. 🙂
Aposiopesis Fullstop: I’m stoked for wild plants.
ɱʋʈֆƴ Ƙαɭίɠλѡɚ (mutsy.kaligawa): Quick, lets draw on his face before he wakes up
Irk (shannonwilsonbell): Weather effecting plants is a most awesome thing.
Verity Goodnight: The main question I have is unrelated and I don’t think anyone can answer it – where is my copy of the Hannibal cookbook?
Aposiopesis Fullstop: Hahaha!
Vikki Placebo: …!
Verity Goodnight: It’s a a pretty hefty hardback book so you’d think it’d be less hard to find
NeoBokrug Elytis: Did you club someone to death with it Verity? Did you bury the book because of that fact?
Aposiopesis Fullstop: And were they delicious?
RMarie Beedit (rmarie.beedit): I was recalling something about growable plants?
NeoBokrug Elytis: The things that are going to affect plants are: Players, Shade or Sunlight, Regions, and Weathers
Verity Goodnight: I can neither confirm nor deny, but the recipes were really good
NeoBokrug Elytis: Growable ones are AFTER wild plants.
RMarie Beedit (rmarie.beedit): ok
RMarie Beedit (rmarie.beedit): wild plants
RMarie Beedit (rmarie.beedit): ok
Irk (shannonwilsonbell): Shade!!
NeoBokrug Elytis: Once wild plants have been out for a long time, I may make systems for players to make their own little WL farms.
ɱʋʈֆƴ Ƙαɭίɠλѡɚ (mutsy.kaligawa): Sunlight!!
Irk (shannonwilsonbell) wants a farm.
ɱʋʈֆƴ Ƙαɭίɠλѡɚ (mutsy.kaligawa): 😀
Irk (shannonwilsonbell) already has a shovel.
NeoBokrug Elytis: I like to make rather complex systems for simple ideas, because I don’t know why.
Aposiopesis Fullstop: That’s very unMutant of you.
Irk (shannonwilsonbell): Mutants are not farmers?
xrrawva: hehe
NeoBokrug Elytis: Haha yeah, do mutants eat plants that prefer the shade?
ɱʋʈֆƴ Ƙαɭίɠλѡɚ (mutsy.kaligawa): D:
Irk (shannonwilsonbell): hmm
NeoBokrug Elytis: Gunna raise some new questions regarding RP stuff.
Aposiopesis Fullstop: They don’t dig or dwell underground, after all!
NeoBokrug Elytis: Half of them do Apo
Irk (shannonwilsonbell): My entire diet is now in question.
ɱʋʈֆƴ Ƙαɭίɠλѡɚ (mutsy.kaligawa) frowns
NeoBokrug Elytis: Haha
Aposiopesis Fullstop: COWARD SEEDS


III. THE ROLEPLAY

NeoBokrug Elytis: Movin on to RP and Events then. Before we start with open-floor:
Irk (shannonwilsonbell): but but… The King of Fire makes them grow!!
ɱʋʈֆƴ Ƙαɭίɠλѡɚ (mutsy.kaligawa): Just so you know, I’m a keen botanist!
NeoBokrug Elytis: If you guys know of thematic shopping events The Wastelands can throw a few L$ to put a poster up, please let me know.
Aposiopesis Fullstop: Sounds like a good spiritual argument
NeoBokrug Elytis: Maybe the king of fire helps pull them from the soil (growing)
ɱʋʈֆƴ Ƙαɭίɠλѡɚ (mutsy.kaligawa): hehe
star (astarynite): are you still not interested in doing one of the big sim hunts?
Irk (shannonwilsonbell): He turns coward seeds into strong plants. Yeah, I got this.
NeoBokrug Elytis: Oh and, later today I am going to make an announcement regarding putting characters on the wiki. I think my little “form” is done enough.
star (astarynite): just need 1 tpresent for tons of people
NeoBokrug Elytis: Open floor for RP and Events discussion!
ɱʋʈֆƴ Ƙαɭίɠλѡɚ (mutsy.kaligawa): Oooh
NeoBokrug Elytis: Maybe IC you could ask Steveke
Vikki Placebo: It’s not Wastelandsy, but Steampunky; don’t know if they haz posters but Engine Room is coming up in a couple months and is high-profile
Verity Goodnight: ohhh yesss
ɱʋʈֆƴ Ƙαɭίɠλѡɚ (mutsy.kaligawa): :O
ɱʋʈֆƴ Ƙαɭίɠλѡɚ (mutsy.kaligawa): WOuld be worth a shot?
Irk (shannonwilsonbell): Mutant Drum Circle is IC on the first Monday of every month. Everyone is welcome!
Aposiopesis Fullstop: Speaking of fictional spirituality! Apo wants to gather information on the cults, faiths, spiritual systems, magicks, and other belief systems of The Wastelands! If your character has a spiritual practice, lemme know – and we can do an interview type thing about it so you can share the ideas! And I’ll try to sum things up in easy-reading format for The N, as well, in case others want to convert. 😉
Vikki Placebo: MAGICK!
Aposiopesis Fullstop: Like a local church directory, only… not. Very, very not.
Vikki Placebo: 😀
ɱʋʈֆƴ Ƙαɭίɠλѡɚ (mutsy.kaligawa): :3
RMarie Beedit (rmarie.beedit): cult of the space rock
NeoBokrug Elytis: I am working on a new RP-only quest.
Aposiopesis Fullstop: !
Vikki Placebo hands Apo a detailed recipe list!
Aposiopesis Fullstop tries to shake more information out of Neo.
ɱʋʈֆƴ Ƙαɭίɠλѡɚ (mutsy.kaligawa): haha
BlackWidow Sinister: we really need something new to do.
Irk (shannonwilsonbell): Yeah hey spill about the RP quest!
Aposiopesis Fullstop: He’s like a vending machine, right? You just have to shimmy him the right way, and the data will come out?
Vikki Placebo: Hawt!
Aposiopesis Fullstop: Hahaha!
Verity Goodnight: where do you insert the scrit tho?
ɱʋʈֆƴ Ƙαɭίɠλѡɚ (mutsy.kaligawa): APo nows it!
Aposiopesis Fullstop: >:D
ɱʋʈֆƴ Ƙαɭίɠλѡɚ (mutsy.kaligawa): Kk=nows*
ɱʋʈֆƴ Ƙαɭίɠλѡɚ (mutsy.kaligawa): crap
ɱʋʈֆƴ Ƙαɭίɠλѡɚ (mutsy.kaligawa): Knows* xD
Aposiopesis Fullstop: Other RP-wise… Booze & Blather still goes down every Thursday at 6pm for casual roleplay hangouts!
Aposiopesis Fullstop: Always an interesting discussion or two to be had.
Irk (shannonwilsonbell): Oh yeah, Buzzard Hunt through the end of June!
Aposiopesis Fullstop: Oooh, indeed…
RMarie Beedit (rmarie.beedit): ‘d like to propose that in the final days of the buzzard hunt, people be open to fighting for the kill
BlackWidow Sinister: been there, done that
Aposiopesis Fullstop: Should always be.
BlackWidow Sinister: eyes Apo
Irk (shannonwilsonbell): Wastelanders should always be open to killing.
star (astarynite): yes
RMarie Beedit (rmarie.beedit): ^^^ cool then
star (astarynite): nothing to stop you from going after a buzzard
BlackWidow Sinister: sure there is, when there is no buzzard
NeoBokrug Elytis: It’s a one-shot only RP quest with multiple “paths”. It’s all lore to progress a story. You decisions as a person will affect you directly, and the decisions as a whole community will help guide the story later. It is actually my top priority now, as it blocks other actual estate work. 😛
Aposiopesis Fullstop: Oh! It’s the thing you’d mentioned a long time ago about the Burnt Oak thing?
NeoBokrug Elytis: Yes.
Aposiopesis Fullstop says thing again for good measure.
ɱʋʈֆƴ Ƙαɭίɠλѡɚ (mutsy.kaligawa): oooh
Irk (shannonwilsonbell): Hey neat!!
BlackWidow Sinister: and it takes more than one person to do?
NeoBokrug Elytis: No.
BlackWidow Sinister: rats, no dates
BlackWidow Sinister: I want to fall on and devour them
ɱʋʈֆƴ Ƙαɭίɠλѡɚ (mutsy.kaligawa): What, rats? 😮
BlackWidow Sinister: Trespasses will be stung, paralyzed, and in two day their liquefied innards will be extracted to feed the brood.
Aposiopesis Fullstop: I’ve gotta yak at Tralala about it, but if she’s still too busy to wrangle it together this year, I’m thinking Rondyvoo will probably happen in early to mid-August!
NeoBokrug Elytis: Please keep me up to date on that, dates specifically. 🙂
BlackWidow Sinister: I have found a group that would be great for a WL even. It’s a drumming group. We should see them sometimes Apo.
BlackWidow Sinister: event
BlackWidow Sinister: they even look wasterly
Vikki Placebo: Neat!
ɱʋʈֆƴ Ƙαɭίɠλѡɚ (mutsy.kaligawa): Hi Dan, bye Dan 😮
BlackWidow Sinister: they drum on everything from a kettle drum to a toilet
Aposiopesis Fullstop: Yup! Still the proto-planning stage, but it’d be the same as last year: booths where people can auction or sell “character-made” goods, some music, some storytelling, etc.
Aposiopesis Fullstop: That sounds pretty suiting, yeah. Kinda a virtual Stomp.
BlackWidow Sinister: yes
Irk (shannonwilsonbell): Drumming groups are neat 🙂
NeoBokrug Elytis: What’s after Rondyvoo?
ɱʋʈֆƴ Ƙαɭίɠλѡɚ (mutsy.kaligawa): I’d like to see that too Widow 😮
BlackWidow Sinister: KK
ɱʋʈֆƴ Ƙαɭίɠλѡɚ (mutsy.kaligawa): Yeah 🙂
BlackWidow Sinister: their group is in my pofle
BlackWidow Sinister: sheesh can’t spell today
Aposiopesis Fullstop: I think the next BIG thing after Rondyvoo is just Trigger Treat, honestly.
Irk (shannonwilsonbell): Damn this year is flying by
NeoBokrug Elytis: Sounds about right.
Aposiopesis Fullstop: Or, at least, that’s the next all-day festival I do. Sometimes there’s the sorta half-day Post-Apoc Sock Hop, but that’s not really that much of a thing.
ɱʋʈֆƴ Ƙαɭίɠλѡɚ (mutsy.kaligawa): hehe
Aposiopesis Fullstop: But if anyone else wants to host something, I can help give info about how to coordinate events and get things going!
ɱʋʈֆƴ Ƙαɭίɠλѡɚ (mutsy.kaligawa): then we should make that an all day thing too?
Irk (shannonwilsonbell): Chav Normalhands
BlackWidow Sinister: I don’t have enough socks for an all day sock hop
RMarie Beedit (rmarie.beedit): xD
ɱʋʈֆƴ Ƙαɭίɠλѡɚ (mutsy.kaligawa): xD
Vikki Placebo: Chav! 🙂
Chav Paderborn: hi!
RMarie Beedit (rmarie.beedit): ho chav
xrrawva: heyo
star (astarynite): *** Oi Oi!! ***
NeoBokrug Elytis: Okay, almost time for Warzone. Please wear masks, wash hands, and social distance. Or else we’re going to have the most lame apocalypse ever.
Mayo von Schrott (myotis.draconia): OOOOIIIIII!
Aposiopesis Fullstop: It really doesn’t have enough to it to be an all-day thing. The music gets samesy enough for a short event’ it’d have to be fleshed out with… something else somehow.
Vikki Placebo: 😀
Aposiopesis Fullstop: AGREED.
star (astarynite): Thanks Neo
Chav Paderborn: dang i missed
Aposiopesis Fullstop: What region, Neo?
BlackWidow Sinister: gotta run off to RL for a while, back in 1/2 hour
BlackWidow Sinister: wavies
NeoBokrug Elytis: Warzone will be held in Fort Stygian
Irk (shannonwilsonbell): My pixles are clean, I ain’t concerned.
Aposiopesis Fullstop: Haha!
ɱʋʈֆƴ Ƙαɭίɠλѡɚ (mutsy.kaligawa): WL: Fairly Worn Out Sock
RMarie Beedit (rmarie.beedit): runs off to pay tier
Aposiopesis Fullstop: TO FORT STYGIAN!
