Community Meeting: November 26, 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!



ESTATE:

➳ Project Uplift is complete, and all Second Life regions are now hosted in the cloud! After a few rough weeks, many issues are starting to be smoothed out, and performance is improving.
➳ The usual annual “Christmas crunch” is happening, and occupancy is down since October: not ideal, but okay.
➳ Neo’s been testing a new Estate audio stream which landowners would be able to rent for free – but the current iteration has some flaws; he’ll be starting over.
➳ Preliminary work is underway for SECRET PROJECT – which Neo can hopefully tell us about before the end of the year.
➳ Neo is dusting off the Wastelands Public Works program! If you’re a content creator, if you’re good at communicating info, or you have other skills you want to share, please send him an IM!
➳ The Visitor Center / RP Wing and the Burnt Oak redesign are still on hold until the Secret Project is done.
➳ The new Press Blog theme is up, but still being tinkered with.
➳ Do you know HTML or CSS?  Neo will gladly accept some help with updating the main website.

GAME:
➳ Trader Update! Alden has been upgraded: he’ll now namedrop characters he’s interacted with before. Also, he’s animesh!
➳ Most of Alden’s updates were under the hood, however: logging is now more detailed, EXP will now be refunded correctly in the rare event of errors on task setup, and the scripts themselves have been polished up and refactored.
➳ This year’s Halloween task was scaled back somewhat from Neo’s original plans – but was still well-received.
➳ Giftmas collectables will spawn from December 18 through New Year’s Day.
➳ Saul the Food Trader is still dead.

ROLEPLAY & EVENTS:
➳ Early Notice – WL14B: The Wastelands’ 14th Birthday celebration will take place from Friday, January 15 through Sunday, January 17, 2021!
➳ If you’d like to host any sort of event, contact NeoBokrug Elytis or Aposiopesis Fullstop ASAP with your name, event details, and your top three preferences for date and time.
➳ Trick-or-Treating was a success – and is likely to be a new annual tradition!
➳ The roleplay character template has been added to the Wiki – add yours today!
➳ Apo is conducting in-character interviews to document the original roleplayed belief systems of The Wastelands in a new series of Press articles.  If you’ve created an original spiritual practice for your character, and you want to spread the word, get in touch!
➳ Want to write posts from an in-character perspective for the Press?  Let Neo know!
➳ December’s Barrelhead Bazaar will take place at 11am Saturday, December 5.
Giftmas Celebrations:
➳ Akiko Thursday will host Post-Apoc Krampusnacht on Saturday, December 5 at 7:00pm SLT
➳ The Giftmas “TREE” will go up on yet-to-be-determined parcel on Friday, December 11. Prepare your presents!
➳ Irk will soon be rolling out Bleedy the Dirtman, a festive holiday horror for everyone to decorate.
➳ The Apo’s Audio Atrocities Giftmas Craptacular, a cavalcade of weird holiday music, will happen on Saturday, December 19.
➳ Giftmas collectables start spawning on December 18th.
➳ Since most people won’t be traveling this year, we’ll have some sort of Giftmas party on December 26th – details as we determine them! If you’d like to host an event, get in touch with Neo.

NeoBokrug Elytis: IT’S… TIME.
Memory Harker: 😀
Aposiopesis Fullstop: wooo!
Sandling Honey: 😀
The Mutant Witch of the Wastes (ccindy.pfeffer): so .. i could ruin it for you all if i pretend to mind than?
NeoBokrug Elytis: Usually once a month we have a community meeting here at 2pm, just like right now. And we cover the three main aspects of the estate: Land & Estate, The Game, and RP & Events — with time for questions in between!
Memory Harker: Ha!
Storm Thunders snorts
NeoBokrug Elytis: Since there wasn’t one on October (BECAUSE HALLOWEEN), and there won’t be one in December (BECAUSE GIFTMAS), We’ve got a lot to cover!
Memory Harker sharpens her pencil.
ɱʋʈֆƴ Ƙαɭίɠλѡɚ (mutsy.kaligawa): 😀
NeoBokrug Elytis: Occupancy is down from October as expected, hopefully we can hold on to what we’ve got until spring when things pick up. That’s just the ebb and flow of SL land.
NeoBokrug Elytis: We’re doing alright in general though.
ɱʋʈֆƴ Ƙαɭίɠλѡɚ (mutsy.kaligawa): Oh good ^^
Memory Harker: ^_^
NeoBokrug Elytis: Now that the Press Blog is migrated to an updated server and has been stable for over a year: We’d like to add a few interested people to the press blog who want to write articles related to The Wastelands. I’m open to your ideas, so if you’re interested please contact me.
Irk (shannonwilsonbell): hmm…
NeoBokrug Elytis: You will probably be “interviewed” and subjected to combat by trial.
ɱʋʈֆƴ Ƙαɭίɠλѡɚ (mutsy.kaligawa): D:
Aposiopesis Fullstop: Haha!
Storm Thunders: do we fight the judge or lawyers?
NeoBokrug Elytis: Yes.
ɱʋʈֆƴ Ƙαɭίɠλѡɚ (mutsy.kaligawa): We it be a public fight? :p
The Mutant Witch of the Wastes (ccindy.pfeffer): will we fight the paperwork too?
NeoBokrug Elytis: The current implementation of the estate audio stream setup I’ve been testing for the past month, and wanted to use has a few issues. I will probably start over on it. It is something I wanted to have current residents click a box to get a stream for 24 hours; kind of as an added value feature. I’m not giving up on it but I’ll probably shelve it for now and start over later.
Storm Thunders: papercuts for the potatoes!
Memory Harker: If it’s a kangaroo court, can we BOX ’em?
Vikki Placebo: 🙂
ɱʋʈֆƴ Ƙαɭίɠλѡɚ (mutsy.kaligawa): ooh
NeoBokrug Elytis: The bots got some nice updates and I could probably fit a bunch more on the little raspberry pi that is their home — but I still want to move to animesh in the end.
Irk (shannonwilsonbell): Oh cool free stream!
The Mutant Witch of the Wastes (ccindy.pfeffer): and most important will there be a press gang to press people into work for the press?
Aposiopesis Fullstop: Hahaha!
Memory Harker: HAHAHAH
Irk (shannonwilsonbell): hah
Memory Harker: ^5 Ccindy.
ɱʋʈֆƴ Ƙαɭίɠλѡɚ (mutsy.kaligawa): xD
RockinAngel: brb gotta a call
RM Beedit (rmarie.beedit): nice
NeoBokrug Elytis: The Secret Project we’ve been working on and is in part why some of the things are delayed, is well on it’s way now. I am guessing I can talk about it more before the year is up.
Memory Harker: *sniffs* Someone ’round here smells of pecan pie …
Sandling Honey: 2020 just called Neo..
Sandling Honey: They’re doing another
Aposiopesis Fullstop: D:
ɱʋʈֆƴ Ƙαɭίɠλѡɚ (mutsy.kaligawa): :O
Memory Harker: Gah.
NeoBokrug Elytis: Relating to the Secret Project, I am also rebooting the Wastelands Public Works group. That group was initially created for residents who wanted to build stuff for the estate. I still want to do that, except I want to expand upon it for things like people who are good at communicating with each other or teaching things. So, if you want to build stuff and you aren’t currently in the group, or you have other skills you want to contribute — please send me an IM.
NeoBokrug Elytis: I know I bounced between topics machine-gun style, but any questions about any of that?
The Mutant Witch of the Wastes (ccindy.pfeffer): apo, you want to cohost bad pun class?
Aposiopesis Fullstop: Hahaha!
Vikki Placebo: Aw, Apo has the best puns 🙂
Memory Harker: 😀
Winnie (winston.chandrayaan): ot sure I could take that sort of punishment,,,
ɱʋʈֆƴ Ƙαɭίɠλѡɚ (mutsy.kaligawa): lol
Aposiopesis Fullstop builds the Punderdome.
Candide LeMay: are there exaples of what the public works group built in the past?
Vikki Placebo: lol
NeoBokrug Elytis: Much of the stuff at the heap is public works stuff.
Storm Thunders wouild tour the Punderdome.
Aposiopesis Fullstop: The features around the caldera of Fort Stygian are by the WLPW, as well, aren’t they?
NeoBokrug Elytis: I know it’s pretty dated, mostly because the group has been dormant — but it still holds up.
NeoBokrug Elytis: Yes, I believe so.
ɱʋʈֆƴ Ƙαɭίɠλѡɚ (mutsy.kaligawa): 😀
The Mutant Witch of the Wastes (ccindy.pfeffer): the sacrafice place on the south end was wlpw
Aposiopesis Fullstop: Ahh, yeah!
The Mutant Witch of the Wastes (ccindy.pfeffer): some of the houses on empty plots were wlpw too
The Mutant Witch of the Wastes (ccindy.pfeffer): the old ones
Winnie (winston.chandrayaan): and the cormac cavestuff?
NeoBokrug Elytis: Technically yes, Aki made those for WLPW
The Mutant Witch of the Wastes (ccindy.pfeffer): no thats the diggers fault
The Digger (sandusky.kayvon): i think they probably mean Aeg’s cave
NeoBokrug Elytis: If you’re asking about the caves.
The Digger (sandusky.kayvon): but everything else in Cormac is my fault 😛
NeoBokrug Elytis: Haha
Winnie (winston.chandrayaan): oho!
NeoBokrug Elytis: So shoot me an IM if you’re interested in Public works or the press blog!
NeoBokrug Elytis: Okay movin’ on to game stuff!
ɱʋʈֆƴ Ƙαɭίɠλѡɚ (mutsy.kaligawa): I could probably offer my skills in texturing… ok!
The Mutant Witch of the Wastes (ccindy.pfeffer) goes to build thing to blame the digger for, in cormac
ɱʋʈֆƴ Ƙαɭίɠλѡɚ (mutsy.kaligawa): haha
Aposiopesis Fullstop: Haha!
Winnie (winston.chandrayaan) hands a half-chewed grubby piece of paper with paw prints all over to the press
The Digger (sandusky.kayvon): 😀
Storm Thunders: ha!
NeoBokrug Elytis: There was a minor update to the HUD a few times in October. One to fix an error related to being hungry and putting the HUD on.
NeoBokrug Elytis: Another was just an optimization.
Storm Thunders whispers “remember, don’t eat the hud.”
Winnie (winston.chandrayaan): but it has a flavr o.O
Aposiopesis Fullstop: Hee!
Memory Harker: Hahahaha
The Mutant Witch of the Wastes (ccindy.pfeffer): it taskes like burning?
Memory Harker: o.O
ɱʋʈֆƴ Ƙαɭίɠλѡɚ (mutsy.kaligawa): :3
NeoBokrug Elytis: I hope the Halloween Task was fun! I had a severe creative block leading up to making it. Then when deadline panic set in, the block went away. However, the task I had planned would take more work than I had time for. SO I just took a couple small bits of it to make this years Halloween Task.
ɱʋʈֆƴ Ƙαɭίɠλѡɚ (mutsy.kaligawa): It was great ^^
Irk (shannonwilsonbell): I enjoyed it!
RM Beedit (rmarie.beedit): ^^^ me too
ɱʋʈֆƴ Ƙαɭίɠλѡɚ (mutsy.kaligawa): I’ve no idea if anyone got my stuff though xD
Aposiopesis Fullstop: I’m even more curious about miasmas now!
NeoBokrug Elytis: I made a few tweaks to Alden, which ended up being a very big project in the end. It became a sort of cascading series of changes where I had to pretty much touch every script related to his crate task.
ɱʋʈֆƴ Ƙαɭίɠλѡɚ (mutsy.kaligawa): ooh, sorry I was thinking about the trick or treat o_o;
Winnie (winston.chandrayaan): don’t huff the miasma *nods wisely*
ɱʋʈֆƴ Ƙαɭίɠλѡɚ (mutsy.kaligawa): Yeah, the miasma task was cool 😀
NeoBokrug Elytis: Haha oh yeah! I forgot I did those trick ot treat scripts! October was like 2 years ago.
The Mutant Witch of the Wastes (ccindy.pfeffer): this is not wrong
Irk (shannonwilsonbell): Trick or Treat was fun, hope that happens evey year
Aposiopesis Fullstop: AGREED.
ɱʋʈֆƴ Ƙαɭίɠλѡɚ (mutsy.kaligawa): hehe
ɱʋʈֆƴ Ƙαɭίɠλѡɚ (mutsy.kaligawa): a new tradition I’d say
Verity Goodnight: Trick or Treat forever!!!
NeoBokrug Elytis: I should probably take that scripts vendor down… But going back to Alden: I wanted to add better logging on my end to him, but I ran out of quest crate memory at the very end. It compiled with 63k out of 64k. I didn’t know they were crashing at the very end. I ended up making something to listen for that. So I had to refactor a huge chunk of him and split some stuff into a different script. So again, another weekend project took a week to fix.
NeoBokrug Elytis: He’s animesh now, old Animesh but something!
Verity Goodnight: wooo
ɱʋʈֆƴ Ƙαɭίɠλѡɚ (mutsy.kaligawa): oooh nice 😀
Storm Thunders: whooo
NeoBokrug Elytis: He also has a new feature where he remembers past visitors, and will incorporate their names into his quest (and soon to be barter) dialogs. I know it’s a small thing, but it’s probably nice to hear about other Wastelanders out there.
Memory Harker: 😀
Winnie (winston.chandrayaan): noice!
Vikki Placebo: NEat!
Aposiopesis Fullstop: Yeah! 😀
The Mutant Witch of the Wastes (ccindy.pfeffer): hes alden. its ok if hes old animesh. he would not want it any other way
Vikki Placebo: 🙂
NeoBokrug Elytis: Giftmas Collectables will spawn one week before, and one week after Giftmas.
Aposiopesis Fullstop: \o/
NeoBokrug Elytis: That’s it for game stuff, any questions about any of that?
Aposiopesis Fullstop: Are the Giftmas collectables planned to be random, or to have that complex weighting where rares are less common?
Irk (shannonwilsonbell): What’s the secret thing you’re working on?
ɱʋʈֆƴ Ƙαɭίɠλѡɚ (mutsy.kaligawa): \o/
ɱʋʈֆƴ Ƙαɭίɠλѡɚ (mutsy.kaligawa): Where can we expect the tree this year? :3
The Mutant Witch of the Wastes (ccindy.pfeffer): @ irk doomsday masheen
Aposiopesis Fullstop: Haha!
ɱʋʈֆƴ Ƙαɭίɠλѡɚ (mutsy.kaligawa): 😀
Irk (shannonwilsonbell): ha!
NeoBokrug Elytis: Collectables: Maybe I’ll think of a new mechanic this year.
Aposiopesis Fullstop nods.
Aposiopesis Fullstop: There was that year when basically nobody could get #5, and that was sorta pants, is all.
NeoBokrug Elytis: TREE location: IDK yet. Once it gets closer I just pick a plot.
ɱʋʈֆƴ Ƙαɭίɠλѡɚ (mutsy.kaligawa) nods
NeoBokrug Elytis: Secret Thing: Putting all the noobs on your land irk. An infestation of them.
Aposiopesis Fullstop: Hahaha!
ɱʋʈֆƴ Ƙαɭίɠλѡɚ (mutsy.kaligawa): Yay!
Irk (shannonwilsonbell): NOOOOOOOoooooooOOooo!
Memory Harker watches Mutsy’s tail moving like a metronome …
ɱʋʈֆƴ Ƙαɭίɠλѡɚ (mutsy.kaligawa): O.o
Memory Harker: Oh c’mon, Irk, I’m not THAT bad. 😛
The Mutant Witch of the Wastes (ccindy.pfeffer): you can sell bling than
The Mutant Witch of the Wastes (ccindy.pfeffer): wait. is bling still a thing?
Irk (shannonwilsonbell): Hmm….
ɱʋʈֆƴ Ƙαɭίɠλѡɚ (mutsy.kaligawa): It has a mind of it’s own Memory 🙂
Memory Harker: It’s keeping the beat rather well, Muts. 😀
ɱʋʈֆƴ Ƙαɭίɠλѡɚ (mutsy.kaligawa): xD
NeoBokrug Elytis: Okay we’re going to move on to RP & Events, but before we have an open floor I have a few things to say.
Memory Harker whispers: TUUUUUUNE
ɱʋʈֆƴ Ƙαɭίɠλѡɚ (mutsy.kaligawa) has just noticed xrrawva is already wearing a Santa hat…
NeoBokrug Elytis: The Player Characters section of the wiki seems to be delighting a lot of folks! So I will keep pushing for more folks to list their characters there!
NeoBokrug Elytis: https://wiki.the-wastelands.org/Category:Player_Characters
Aposiopesis Fullstop: Yessss. I love it so much.
The Mutant Witch of the Wastes (ccindy.pfeffer): do it
The Mutant Witch of the Wastes (ccindy.pfeffer): make all the rumors
NeoBokrug Elytis: It’s mostly the rumors.
ɱʋʈֆƴ Ƙαɭίɠλѡɚ (mutsy.kaligawa): hehe
Storm Thunders: ahahah the rumors
NeoBokrug Elytis: But the nature of how it works, is mostly to give people random reasons to interact with each other in an IC way.
ɱʋʈֆƴ Ƙαɭίɠλѡɚ (mutsy.kaligawa): oh! I need to do that >o<
Irk (shannonwilsonbell): It’s a great addition
NeoBokrug Elytis: Just make sure that everything adhere to RP lore and canon. I DO do final edits on them, but I try to keep it pretty much what you had your original submission as.
Sketchkat Blackflag waves from afar “as a new person it’s really useful knowing who’s active that way”
Aposiopesis Fullstop: Oh! Hey back there, Sketchkat!
ɱʋʈֆƴ Ƙαɭίɠλѡɚ (mutsy.kaligawa): I need some rumors xD
Sketchkat Blackflag: ^^
ɱʋʈֆƴ Ƙαɭίɠλѡɚ (mutsy.kaligawa): heya!
The Mutant Witch of the Wastes (ccindy.pfeffer): its also realy cool to know glimpses of characters i never encounter caus timezones. and the rumors
ɱʋʈֆƴ Ƙαɭίɠλѡɚ (mutsy.kaligawa): true 🙂
NeoBokrug Elytis: I loathe to speak of meatspace issues, but this gives us an opportunity this year; Since pretty much anyone with a brain is avoiding traveling, and we’re all socially distanced, I was thinking of trying to arrange an all day Giftmas Party on the 26th. I know The Wastelands is usually in low-power, no events mode at the end of the year — but I figure it’s worth a shot.
ɱʋʈֆƴ Ƙαɭίɠλѡɚ (mutsy.kaligawa): :O
Aposiopesis Fullstop: Oooh…
NeoBokrug Elytis: Sound like an idea?
Memory Harker: *big applause*
Verity Goodnight: we can hang out and eat leftovers together
Sandling Honey: Yes!
Irk (shannonwilsonbell): Yeah!
ɱʋʈֆƴ Ƙαɭίɠλѡɚ (mutsy.kaligawa): wow yes 😀
Memory Harker: MMMMMMM!
The Digger (sandusky.kayvon): sounds good!
Storm Thunders: sounds like a good idea
NeoBokrug Elytis: Okay then, we’ll work on it!
The Mutant Witch of the Wastes (ccindy.pfeffer): im game
NeoBokrug Elytis: APO BREAK OUT THE SPREADSHEET.
Aposiopesis Fullstop: IT SHALL BE DONE.
Memory Harker: Hahahaha!
NeoBokrug Elytis: NO, ANOTHER SPREADSHEET!
ɱʋʈֆƴ Ƙαɭίɠλѡɚ (mutsy.kaligawa): yay!!
Wasteland Drifter (wastelanddrifter): Rushing off again?
NeoBokrug Elytis: It’s time to start planning for WL14B: The Wastelands’ 14th Birthday celebration will take place from Friday, January 15 through Sunday, January 17, 2021!
ɱʋʈֆƴ Ƙαɭίɠλѡɚ (mutsy.kaligawa): xD
Aposiopesis Fullstop: \o/ ……..
Verity Goodnight: yyaaaay birthday
ɱʋʈֆƴ Ƙαɭίɠλѡɚ (mutsy.kaligawa): omg… it’s gone that quick?
Verity Goodnight: timetravel
NeoBokrug Elytis: Time has no meaning, it was quick and slow this year.
Storm Thunders: 14!
RM Beedit (rmarie.beedit): time is on our side
ɱʋʈֆƴ Ƙαɭίɠλѡɚ (mutsy.kaligawa) scratches out ideas for the next poster…
Aposiopesis Fullstop: Yaaaay, Mutsy Posters!
ɱʋʈֆƴ Ƙαɭίɠλѡɚ (mutsy.kaligawa): I did one for Hallowwen… not the one you might think!
Memory Harker: XD
ɱʋʈֆƴ Ƙαɭίɠλѡɚ (mutsy.kaligawa): Halloween*
Aposiopesis Fullstop: !
ɱʋʈֆƴ Ƙαɭίɠλѡɚ (mutsy.kaligawa): I think maybe a Giftmas one is on order?
NeoBokrug Elytis: I think that’s it from me. Time to open the floor up for RP & Events discussion!
The Mutant Witch of the Wastes (ccindy.pfeffer): does 14 have a title yet?
Aposiopesis Fullstop: Nothing’s come to me yet, personally. I had 13s in mind by, like, Year 10.
NeoBokrug Elytis: Probably not CC, This is just my early reminder to everyone. a 3 day event takes a lot to plan.
Memory Harker sets out some catnip for Patches. “Here, kitty, kitty, kitty …”
ɱʋʈֆƴ Ƙαɭίɠλѡɚ (mutsy.kaligawa): hmm, got to come up with a catchy phase for it :0
The Mutant Witch of the Wastes (ccindy.pfeffer): you need to keep better track of the foxes around you
ɱʋʈֆƴ Ƙαɭίɠλѡɚ (mutsy.kaligawa): I’m sorry! xD
Memory Harker: Well played, Sandling.
Aposiopesis Fullstop: Speaking of Giftmas events!
NeoBokrug Elytis: Oh, the TREE will go up on Dec 11th
Aposiopesis Fullstop: Next Saturday the 5th, at 7pm, Akiko’s hosting Post-Apoc Krampusnacht!
Verity Goodnight: wooo tree
ɱʋʈֆƴ Ƙαɭίɠλѡɚ (mutsy.kaligawa): ooooh
Memory Harker: o.O
Aposiopesis Fullstop: Expect music, ugly sweaters, and child-eating monsters!
Sandling Honey: In any order?
NeoBokrug Elytis: More child-eating monsters than normal?
Memory Harker: So, like Irk has brothers?
The Mutant Witch of the Wastes (ccindy.pfeffer): YUM YUM YUUUM!
Storm Thunders puts on a sweater and heads to the free buffet!
Aposiopesis Fullstop: FESTIVE child-eating monsters!
Vikki Placebo: Mmm!
Irk (shannonwilsonbell): haha!
Verity Goodnight: child-eating monsters with red hats trimmed with fur??? :O
The Mutant Witch of the Wastes (ccindy.pfeffer): child eating sweaters? i think i had one of these when i was little
Aposiopesis Fullstop: In other festive weirdness… the Apo’s Audio Atrocities GIFTMAS CRAPTCULAR returns this year, probably on the 19th! An extra long set of Holiday Music That Should Not Be.
Sketchkat Blackflag: x3
Memory Harker: WOOOOOT!
Memory Harker polishes up her dancin’ shoes!
Aposiopesis Fullstop: So fix yourself a nice refreshing cup of FUCKNOG and gird yourselves.
Vikki Placebo: Haha
Memory Harker takes the gird with the bad, as ever. 😉
Memory Harker: OH MY GIRRRRRD
NeoBokrug Elytis: Speaking of grid, uplift seems to be alright after the first couple weeks. haha
Aposiopesis Fullstop: In other unholy traditions, I’ll be hosting a traditional terrible movie at the Drive-In. Probably on the 20th.
Memory Harker: Oh yeah? Srsly?
Verity Goodnight: haha I’ve been a cloud a lot today
Storm Thunders: we’re running in the miasma… er cloud!
NeoBokrug Elytis: Before that, it was “LET’S SPEND THE DAY DEBUGGING THE CURRENT FIRES”
Aposiopesis Fullstop: Hahaha
Memory Harker: 😀
NeoBokrug Elytis: You’re just uplifted Verity
Verity Goodnight: :O
NeoBokrug Elytis: I personally, have noticed that things still take longer to rez as objects, and images to load in.
The Mutant Witch of the Wastes (ccindy.pfeffer): verity is a thing to you?
Verity Goodnight: :O
Aposiopesis Fullstop: Oh! RP-wise… Ccindy and I have been working on an interview series on the Press, discussing the faith and spiritual traditions of her Mutant tribe! If your character has an original roleplayed faith and you want to spread the word, let me know! I can give you a list of the sort of ideas we might cover, and then we can set up interviews – possibly to start after WL14B… hahaha
The Mutant Witch of the Wastes (ccindy.pfeffer): also. thank you apo. cool project. thx for having me in it
ɱʋʈֆƴ Ƙαɭίɠλѡɚ (mutsy.kaligawa): ooh wow 😮
Aposiopesis Fullstop: Thanks for *being* part of it! I knew there was a lot of depth to it, but it’s been really great to learn just how much there is to it.
NeoBokrug Elytis: Those are on the press blog for people to read. 🙂
Memory Harker: 😀
Aposiopesis Fullstop: Indeed – the first one’s here: https://press.the-wastelands.org/2020/11/08/faith-in-ruins-the-mutant-ways-pt-i/
The Mutant Witch of the Wastes (ccindy.pfeffer): ohh im just making it up as we go. i can go on for half a year longer if i must 😉
Aposiopesis Fullstop: Haha!
The Mutant Witch of the Wastes (ccindy.pfeffer): untill someone else steps in and grabs your attention *threatens*
Aposiopesis Fullstop: :V
ɱʋʈֆƴ Ƙαɭίɠλѡɚ (mutsy.kaligawa): hehehe
NeoBokrug Elytis: Thanks again for the tunes Sandling!
Sandling Honey: Most welcome! 😀
Aposiopesis Fullstop: Yesss. I’m glad Sand’s Evening Madness is back!
NeoBokrug Elytis: What do you folks think? More music during the meetings?
Vikki Placebo: Yes! Thanks, Sandling! 🙂
Memory Harker: Yes, pls!
Storm Thunders: works for me
ɱʋʈֆƴ Ƙαɭίɠλѡɚ (mutsy.kaligawa): oh yes! 😀

Sandling Honey: hold on

Aposiopesis Fullstop: Ruiner!
ɱʋʈֆƴ Ƙαɭίɠλѡɚ (mutsy.kaligawa): 🙂
Sandling Honey: All back
The Mutant Witch of the Wastes (ccindy.pfeffer): some mutants just want to see the world burn. again.
Aposiopesis Fullstop: Hahahaha
Storm Thunders groans
ɱʋʈֆƴ Ƙαɭίɠλѡɚ (mutsy.kaligawa): Aye to that 😀
Aposiopesis Fullstop: Oh. I’d had another inadvisable holiday idea…
NeoBokrug Elytis: Okay! I don’t know that there’s much left to discuss. So I am going to head over to Fort Stygian once Sandlings set it over. We’ll have Warzone there. last warzone of the year!
