Community Meeting: January 30, 2021

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 – starting in March – the first 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:
➳ The usual wintertime dip in occupancy is underway.
➳ The long-on-hold SECRET PROJECT is still on hold, still secret, and still a project.
➳ To prepare for it, Neo is dusting off the Wastelands Public Works program! If you’re a content creator, if you’re good at communicating info, or if you have other skills you want to share, please send him an IM!
➳ The Burnt Oak redesign has been kicked further down the list of priorities.
➳ The latest release candidate viewer includes new Environmental Enhancement Project variables that would allow more Windlight settings to be set by scripts – allowing for dynamic weather!
➳ Neo wants to get a new base day cycle set for the region default first.

GAME:
➳ Project Uplift has generated a few Experiences KVP issues and HTTP issues, among other things.  Neo’s added some redundancies to help the game weather these hiccups.
➳ Some home network connectivity issues kicked the bots offline more frequently in the last month, but fixes are in the works.
➳ Neo has an eventual goal of making all the bots animesh, except for the estate greeter bot.
➳ An assortment of small issues are on Neo’s agenda, including some Buzzard life timer adjustments and Stew updates to allow all the newest foods.
➳ Salvage scripts are not optimal at the moment: some items have slightly different code, and Neo wants to standardize them and add a new feature.
➳ Henry had a glitch that was making him fully obscure some clues in his reveal, but he is now less vague.
➳ The two new weapons announced last year, which were going to be rewards for the Burnt Oak quest, may be released independently of that instead.
➳ Saul the Food Trader is still dead.

ROLEPLAY & EVENTS:
Saturday Schedule Shakeup:
After some discussion, Community Meetings are going to be moving from 2pm on the last Saturday of the month to 2pm on the first Saturday of the month! This should reduce cancellations and conflicts due to holidays. But, to prevent losing an hour of RP, the Barrelhead Bazaar is moving, as well!
The new plan:
First Saturday: Community Meeting – 2pm
Second Saturday: Barrelhead Bazaar – 11am
Third Saturday: Wasted Raiders’ Raid – Noon
Last Saturday: Skull Ball – 2pm

➳ Draxtor Dupres is filming a profile of The Wastelands!  He’s already come to record some footage, but may return for more later. If you want to supply a voiceover, record a three-minute clip of yourself saying who you are in SL, what you do, and what The Wastelands and/or SL mean to you, and email that to Neo by the end of January 31st!
➳WL14B: The Wastelands’ 14th Birthday celebration was held January 15-17.  Massive thanks to everyone who hosted an event, participated in an event, and/or attended!
➳ The next major all-day festival currently being planned is the Red Revival, to be held April 17.
➳ 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!
➳ Neo may start using the Discord to stream his adventures playing non-WL games on Sundays.
➳ Want to write posts from an in-character perspective for the Press?  Let Neo know!
➳ Reminder: The roleplay character template has been added to the Wiki – add yours today!

Weekly Event Summary:
Sundays: Storytime with Wasteland Drifter – 2pm
Mondays: Mutant Drum Circle – 6pm SLT
Tuesdays: Film Night with Wasteland Drifter – 5pm SLT
Wednesdays: Escape The Miasma! with Soda Foxen – 6pm SLT
Thursdays: Booze & Blather at the bar of The N – 6pm SLT
Saturdays:  Sandling’s Evening Madness – 1pm; Fight Night – 3pm; Apo’s Audio Atrocities – 5pm

NeoBokrug Elytis: Sandling is playing us music if you folks wanna tune in.
NeoBokrug Elytis: IT’S… TIME.
The Mutant Witch of the Wastes (ccindy.pfeffer): im so happy dexter wears a mask now
NeoBokrug Elytis: As per the usual, we talk about the three main aspects of the estate with time in between for questions.
Sandling Honey: Background stuffs – I’ll refrain from throwing out the song titles for the moment, but do give me a poke if someone is interested to know!
NeoBokrug Elytis: Starting with estate stuff!
Dexter Bogdanovich: it never was good to smell you
NeoBokrug Elytis: Feel free to throw out song titles, I don’t mind.
Sandling Honey: Oh allrighty!
The Mutant Witch of the Wastes (ccindy.pfeffer): win win situation
Sandling Honey: np: Yellow6 – Flaming June
NeoBokrug Elytis: It’s been a while since we last had a meeting, and that’s usually due to just how the end of the month kind of clashes with a lot of holidays at the end of the year.
NeoBokrug Elytis: So I would like to move community meetings to the FIRST Saturday of the month. Would anyone be opposed to that?
Sheala (sheala.olivieri): Nope
Dexter Bogdanovich: np
Verity Goodnight: sounds good
Object: whispers: Rob Niosaki just booped Winnie Bhago’s nose!
MiroAIIB: depends on the time, of course. time zones, etc.
The Mutant Witch of the Wastes (ccindy.pfeffer): and than bazaar goes?
NeoBokrug Elytis: Same time as always.
Irk (shannonwilsonbell): Same day as Bazaar
NeoBokrug Elytis: Nah, Bazaar stays.
NeoBokrug Elytis: It’s usually done at 2pm
MiroAIIB Resident: Away!
NeoBokrug Elytis: Or we could move bazaar to the second saturday if you want that extra hour.
Sandling Honey: np: Aphex Twin – Tassels
NeoBokrug Elytis: I don’t mind shaking it up, but I know we missed out on a lot of community meeting last year due to ends of the month stuff.
Rax Stooge: yay aphex
NeoBokrug Elytis: We’ll start with occupancy. It’s had it’s predictable winter dip. I hope that Feb and March pick it up and then some. 🙂
Irk (shannonwilsonbell): 2nd Sat sounds good
Aposiopesis Fullstop: I’d have to start Skull Ball earlier, or just… not do it.
Irk (shannonwilsonbell): oh right
NeoBokrug Elytis: Or the 3rd of the month
NeoBokrug Elytis: Uplift has been a bit of a hassle for everyone, and it kind of touches on each aspect we’ll be talking about tonight
The Mutant Witch of the Wastes (ccindy.pfeffer): how about skullball befor bazaar? its not that long of an event
NeoBokrug Elytis: I have mostly been chasing by butt putting in more redundancy and better failover for various http or experiences kvp issues. I think they’re all hammered down now.
The Mutant Witch of the Wastes (ccindy.pfeffer): before meeting
NeoBokrug Elytis: There WAS an issue with scraping data from the lindex and so for a while a few tier auto-pay complaining about wrong payments amounts. Fortunately it was only about a dozen such instances.
Aposiopesis Fullstop: Ahhh, that’s what that was.
NeoBokrug Elytis: But, I don’t want people to miss tier payments because LL is donking something up, so I put quite a few more checks in. Nothing is complaining as of yet.
Candide LeMay: i imagine the lindex servers sound like the stream
NeoBokrug Elytis: We’re still in a holding pattern for the big secret project (march will be a year). I want to reboot the WL Pubic works because of it. I have … plans.
NeoBokrug Elytis: If you’re not familiar with the WL Public works, basically; we make things and give it away to residents and visitors to spread apocalyptic grime across the grid.
NeoBokrug Elytis: And use it in builds here.
Irk (shannonwilsonbell): Yay grime!
NeoBokrug Elytis: FILTH
Storm Thunders: whoo!
NeoBokrug Elytis: Also
The Mutant Witch of the Wastes (ccindy.pfeffer): and sparkling bling .. oh wait
Candide LeMay: there ought to be a “gimme grime!” sales event for it
Rax Stooge: Another visitor…
Rax Stooge: Stay awhile…
Rax Stooge: Staaay forever!
The Mutant Witch of the Wastes (ccindy.pfeffer): gimme that rax 😉
Aposiopesis Fullstop: 😀
NeoBokrug Elytis: If you were planning to be in the Draxtor Dupres thing saying something, you’ve gotta get me your voice clips preferably by tonight or EARLY tomorrow.
Sandling Honey: np: Aleksi Perala – Purple Rain
Verity Goodnight: ohhhh yess
Verity Goodnight: grime
NeoBokrug Elytis: Format is, “My name is blah, in SL I am bla, I like SL/The Wastelands because reasons.” No longer than 3 minutes feel free to freeform it.
Mayo von Schrott (myotis.draconia): Grime Scene Investigators
NeoBokrug Elytis: Any questions about estate related things?
Aposiopesis Fullstop: I have no idea how to keep all of that under three minutes. :V
The Mutant Witch of the Wastes (ccindy.pfeffer): did the movie guy mention new time for filming?
xrrawva: speed up the recording to fit 3 minutes
Aposiopesis Fullstop: Haha!
Storm Thunders: ha!
The Mutant Witch of the Wastes (ccindy.pfeffer): x is so wise
NeoBokrug Elytis: Not yet. I think he has the footage he needs? I don’t know for sure.
NeoBokrug Elytis: When I send him all the recordings and words, he’ll probably touch base with me again.
Irk (shannonwilsonbell): He hasn’t called for a close-up of Irk’s feet yet so idk.
Aposiopesis Fullstop: Hahaha
NeoBokrug Elytis: Wow. Rude.
Sheala (sheala.olivieri): XD
The Mutant Witch of the Wastes (ccindy.pfeffer): irk hes not filming in 16:9
NeoBokrug Elytis: Moving on to game stuff then.
Mayo von Schrott (myotis.draconia): thats why its called FOOTage
Irk (shannonwilsonbell): hahah
Sheala (sheala.olivieri): Heheheh
Storm Thunders: I thought your feet required landscape mode
Aposiopesis Fullstop: Haha!
NeoBokrug Elytis: WIth the game for the past three months we’ve had, Hallowee, Foodmas, and Giftmas.
NeoBokrug Elytis: PLUS.
NeoBokrug Elytis: All sorts of uplift issues that I’ve had to put fires out on.
Aposiopesis Fullstop: …There was Foodmas?
NeoBokrug Elytis: I’ve made updates to Alden as well.
Dexter Bogdanovich: Foodmas?
NeoBokrug Elytis: I don’t know that there was.
NeoBokrug Elytis: 2020, I’ve already forgotten ye.
The Mutant Witch of the Wastes (ccindy.pfeffer): no saul, no foodmas
The Mutant Witch of the Wastes (ccindy.pfeffer): you all eaten him already?
Candide LeMay: alden seems to be disappearing on me. sometimes he’s visitme sometimes he’s not. is that a known animesh issue?
Candide LeMay: *visible
NeoBokrug Elytis: Alden is animesh, and has better processing for the quests.
NeoBokrug Elytis: Could just be asset loading issues, another problem with uplift.
NeoBokrug Elytis: Though LL seems to think that things are fine on that front, IDK.
Winnie Bhago (winston.chandrayaan): pfft
The Digger (sandusky.kayvon): he was invisible for me one day, but i was able to click on where he was supposed to be and still interact with him
NeoBokrug Elytis: Probably asset issues. 🙁
The Digger (sandusky.kayvon): so yeah assett stuff
Irk (shannonwilsonbell): same for me, Digger
NeoBokrug Elytis: This is what we get for trying to have nice things.
The Mutant Witch of the Wastes (ccindy.pfeffer): i noticed the bots going offline a lot in the last months since uplift, is that related or do i just have bad luck?
NeoBokrug Elytis: That’s just my home connection needing fixes. All the bots run on a raspberry pi.
NeoBokrug Elytis: Around Giftmas one of my network cards died.
Winnie Bhago (winston.chandrayaan): eep
NeoBokrug Elytis: I have been using a sub-optimal spare since last weekend.
NeoBokrug Elytis: But, it should be up.
NeoBokrug Elytis: We also had a lot of connectivity problems for a week, that got sorted out after a 4 hour long outtage.
NeoBokrug Elytis: Eventually I want to make the bots animesh, except for the estate bot.
Aposiopesis Fullstop: Coming full circle, kinda!
The Mutant Witch of the Wastes (ccindy.pfeffer): can aegs model be a jar of ash?
NeoBokrug Elytis: Indeed! In my spare time I am working on a new version of the salvage script. Basically all the scripts that go in the objects like rubber, feathers, cinderblocks. They’re all due for an update.
Sandling Honey: np: Woob – Creek
NeoBokrug Elytis: I want to make sure they’re all using the same code, instead of having slightly tweaked code, AND I want to try to squeeze in a new feature.
Aposiopesis Fullstop leans forward.
The Mutant Witch of the Wastes (ccindy.pfeffer): feathers as weapon
MiroAIIB: time for tickle
Irk (shannonwilsonbell): Pipes as food.
Aposiopesis Fullstop: Haha!
NeoBokrug Elytis: Right now there’s about 4 or 5 different versions of scrap script. And we’ve got 300 or so objects. And if I understand how regions work. Each single instance of a hunk of rubber shares the same memory on the region as another hunk of rubber.
NeoBokrug Elytis: What I want to do is program them so they can share the same memory across objects, like a hunk of rubber has the same base code, as a cinderblock.
NeoBokrug Elytis: The way I coded them back in the day is having all their data hard-coded into the script. I want to dynamically load it when I create the object
Candide LeMay: not many wl objects are actually rezzed inworld, is that worth doing?
NeoBokrug Elytis: So those variables are just not actually part of the script, but part of it’s memory.
NeoBokrug Elytis: A lot are rezzed inworld.
Irk (shannonwilsonbell): Does this mean an inventory exchange?
NeoBokrug Elytis: And it would be nice to consolidate all the different scripts into a universal
NeoBokrug Elytis: No, they’ll just be updated anytime you use them on a masheen or whatever.
The Mutant Witch of the Wastes (ccindy.pfeffer): all the sculpt and mesh ones might end up on the ground, and some prim ones are decorative .. im looking at you chemical s
Irk (shannonwilsonbell): hahah
NeoBokrug Elytis: You have chemicals E and X right?
NeoBokrug Elytis: 😉
The Mutant Witch of the Wastes (ccindy.pfeffer): and a .. but i got some m and s left
NeoBokrug Elytis: I also have an ever growing list of minor annoyances to fix on the whiteboard.
Aposiopesis Fullstop: Ahh, S and M with the S, E, and X!
Winnie Bhago (winston.chandrayaan): \o/
Sheala (sheala.olivieri): XD
NeoBokrug Elytis: Buzzard life timer while in combat, stew updates.
NeoBokrug Elytis: plants
The Mutant Witch of the Wastes (ccindy.pfeffer): now i see why they are named that way .. this is the other wasteland after all .. where is my silk robes?
Aposiopesis Fullstop: Hahaha!
NeoBokrug Elytis: Haha
NeoBokrug Elytis: So much to do.
NeoBokrug Elytis: Any questions about game stuff?
Aposiopesis Fullstop: What stew updates are needed?
NeoBokrug Elytis: New foods and candies needed to be added to the internal lists.
Aposiopesis Fullstop: Ahhh yes.
Winnie Bhago (winston.chandrayaan): \o/
Aposiopesis Fullstop: Are Dune Trapper updates still on the agenda?
NeoBokrug Elytis: Yes.
The Mutant Witch of the Wastes (ccindy.pfeffer): toxin could be helpfull to fill up the bv amount quicker
Aposiopesis Fullstop: Haha!
NeoBokrug Elytis: Haha SURE
NeoBokrug Elytis scribbles down notes.
Drifter (wastelanddrifter): Candy stew, eh?
Aposiopesis Fullstop: Since the thing that is on hold is still so on hold, is that going to bump up the Burnt Oak stuff or RP wing in priority again?
MiroAIIB: diabities in coming
NeoBokrug Elytis: The updated logging for the same took a long time because I guess I sucked at working on it. But, it’s working as intended now. ALden needs a minor fix. He should be mentioning previous questers at certain times, and I am ont seeing that in the logs.
Sandling Honey: np: Boards of Canada – Everything You Do is a Balloon
Rax Stooge: S O N G
Rax Stooge claps
Candide LeMay: indeed
Irk (shannonwilsonbell): He mentioned me once
The Mutant Witch of the Wastes (ccindy.pfeffer): your famous now irk
Irk (shannonwilsonbell): He said I went to Cormac and never came back.
Aposiopesis Fullstop: Haha!
Sandling Honey: <3
Drifter (wastelanddrifter): Fascinating
Sheala (sheala.olivieri): Is this true? Coz I see you
NeoBokrug Elytis: Burnt Oak isn’t as important because occupancy doesn’t really demand it yet. It would be nice to work on, and I still come back and pick at it some days. The good thing about having so much to do, is that there’s always a lot of options if I don’t feel like working on scripting.
The Mutant Witch of the Wastes (ccindy.pfeffer): irk .. bring the bees back to him, dont hold them all day
NeoBokrug Elytis: OH
Aposiopesis Fullstop: That being the case, since you said there were new weapons needing nothing but code, and they were going to be rewards for the Burnt Oak quest…
NeoBokrug Elytis: The most recent RC server candidate, has all those missing EEP variables in now.
Aposiopesis Fullstop: OOH!
Storm Thunders: mmmm
NeoBokrug Elytis: So I can poke at scripting some of that, like real time weather. I Gotta get a base day-cycle down. But tinkering with all that with the current UI is a hassle.
NeoBokrug Elytis: I loathe the little circle-sun-moon placement things. Just give me sliders.
Candide LeMay: yeah the eep UI is bad even by LL”s low standards
NeoBokrug Elytis: Even if they keep the circles there, put sliders on the bottom and side.
NeoBokrug Elytis: Trying to fine tune anything is hard.
Winnie Bhago (winston.chandrayaan): yeah
Candide LeMay: the “best” thing is that to get the sun/moon under the horizon you have to get it behind the trackball
NeoBokrug Elytis: I hate it.
Candide LeMay: people have been doing cool stuff with it though. like cica’s new sim
NeoBokrug Elytis: Oh I agree. New EEP is nice if you can wrangle it.
NeoBokrug Elytis: I am sure there’s a lot of stuff we’ve done in the past 3 months that I’ve forgotten about, because 2020 is absolutely forgettable. May we never properly remember it.
Beasil (beasil.roundfield): I love playing with the EEP. I’ve put so many custom day cycles on my parcels.
NeoBokrug Elytis: Any questions about game stuff?
NeoBokrug Elytis: On to RP and events, but before we start.
Sandling Honey: np: Bola – Effanajor
NeoBokrug Elytis: WL 14 B was amazing.
Aposiopesis Fullstop: I’d tried to ask earlier if there were any ideas to have those two new weapons released as their own things, since the Burnt Oak rebuild and quest aren’t going to be priorities
NeoBokrug Elytis: I will add that to my pile Apo
Drifter (wastelanddrifter): New EEP: New Egyptian Economic Policy
Irk (shannonwilsonbell): Yeah 14 was super fun!
NeoBokrug Elytis: Thank you everyone for coming to WL14B or participating.
MiroAIIB: aye
NeoBokrug Elytis: I was super tired for a day and a half when it was all over.
Storm Thunders cheers at 14!
Aposiopesis Fullstop: Yeah! All the performances were amazing and I was basically dead on Monday and it was wonderful.
Sandling Honey: I made sure to be dead before it. I thought I had it all worked out
NeoBokrug Elytis: Time to start planning for WL15B
Sheala (sheala.olivieri): Good times were had
Sandling Honey: That way I’d already cope. Alas.
NeoBokrug Elytis: What’s the next major event?
xrrawva: will the estate be set to adult on wl18b/wl21b?
Irk (shannonwilsonbell): Botan hunting?
MiroAIIB: lol
Aposiopesis Fullstop: I don’t have anything on my own agenda until the Red Revival, April 17.
Irk (shannonwilsonbell): haha X
The Mutant Witch of the Wastes (ccindy.pfeffer): i got 2 more questions about resceduling the meeting. !) will there be a meeting starting next weekend or in march? and 2) sind a lot of the regulars for bazaar and skullball are here. how about skullball before meeting on the 1st. and bazaar on the 2nd week?
Aposiopesis Fullstop: Theoretically, yeah, Botan Bloodlust on Feb 14, but that hasn’t happened in…. uh.
Irk (shannonwilsonbell): I like Cc’s plan
Storm Thunders: maybe a class in re-potting botans?
NeoBokrug Elytis: The next meeting would be March 1st.
Sheala (sheala.olivieri): Sounds good to me, Ccindy
MiroAIIB: regular classes for noobs
Aposiopesis Fullstop: There was a certain assonance to Second Saturday Skull Ball, but whatever it needs to be.
NeoBokrug Elytis: And skullball before works. All I know is that I think it’s important to move the community meeting to the first week.
NeoBokrug Elytis: Does Barrelhead push past 2 often tho?
Irk (shannonwilsonbell): sometimes
The Mutant Witch of the Wastes (ccindy.pfeffer): thats why i want to talk about, how to scedule things. its better and faster now than anything else
Irk (shannonwilsonbell): I often have to run out at 2:45 to do things before FN
NeoBokrug Elytis: Maybe
NeoBokrug Elytis: 1st week: Community Meeting
The Mutant Witch of the Wastes (ccindy.pfeffer): me too
Irk (shannonwilsonbell): “often”
NeoBokrug Elytis: 2nd Week Skullball
NeoBokrug Elytis: 3rd Week: barrelhead
Irk (shannonwilsonbell): that works
Aposiopesis Fullstop: 3rd Saturday is usually Wasted Raiders.
Sheala (sheala.olivieri): That sounds good too
Irk (shannonwilsonbell): heheh
NeoBokrug Elytis: Okay.
Aposiopesis Fullstop: But yeah, whatever, I can move it to whatever it has to be.
NeoBokrug Elytis: Let’s figure it out, we got time
Aposiopesis Fullstop: Skull Ball is… honestly not a big draw. We can just cancel it if we need to.
The Mutant Witch of the Wastes (ccindy.pfeffer): it sure works. it fills all the weekends tho, thats why i thought to comapact it a little to free 2 weeks for potential events/parties and reduce colliding dates
NeoBokrug Elytis: Let’s just put it before community meeting then
The Mutant Witch of the Wastes (ccindy.pfeffer): skullball is awesome tho
Aposiopesis Fullstop: Maybe it just needs scheduled for a different day entirely.
Aposiopesis Fullstop: Because it’s usually just 1 on 1s.
Sheala (sheala.olivieri): What about Skullball Sunday
Drifter (wastelanddrifter): I want to see ten on ten in there.
NeoBokrug Elytis: Haha
The Mutant Witch of the Wastes (ccindy.pfeffer): lagfest
Irk (shannonwilsonbell): Sunday is a good idea
The Mutant Witch of the Wastes (ccindy.pfeffer): i think cormac can only hanfle 20 or 22 avatars does it?
NeoBokrug Elytis: How about this.
NeoBokrug Elytis: Skullball, last sunday
The Mutant Witch of the Wastes (ccindy.pfeffer): handle
NeoBokrug Elytis: 1: COmmunity meeting / warzone
NeoBokrug Elytis: 2: Barrelhead
NeoBokrug Elytis: 3: Raid
NeoBokrug Elytis: Last: Skullball
Irk (shannonwilsonbell): That.
Sheala (sheala.olivieri): Nice
NeoBokrug Elytis writes on the whiteboard
Sandling Honey: np: Gasman – Poison
Aposiopesis Fullstop: That works. And a lot of parties land on the last Saturday of the month – but if one doesn’t, we can shuffle things to that day maybe, as needed.
NeoBokrug Elytis: yeah nothing is set in stone ever
Sheala (sheala.olivieri): Unless you use cement
NeoBokrug Elytis: Even then, weather. 🙂
Storm Thunders: Try it for a couple months, see how it rolls
Sheala (sheala.olivieri): XD
The Mutant Witch of the Wastes (ccindy.pfeffer): good thing about skullball as a short even is always, it just fits in between some place
MiroAIIB: aye, doing for a while as a pilot test
Aposiopesis Fullstop: It can be a one-hour block IF we have players ready at the start.
Sandling Honey: np: Venetian Snares – Gottrahmen
The Mutant Witch of the Wastes (ccindy.pfeffer): heya
NeoBokrug Elytis: I guess open floor for RP & Events discussion then!
Aposiopesis Fullstop: When its half an hour of hoping we get at least two people to play a 1 v 1, that makes the actual playing a bit of a rush. (Then again, if it’s 1 vs 1, maybe that’s enough? I dunno.)
Sheala (sheala.olivieri): I’ll try make it. Do love some Skullball
MiroAIIB: depends on how much anyone’s pc can handle
NeoBokrug Elytis: I may or may not randomly stream non-wl games on the discord server on sundays. Hopefully they’re less squares now.
Aposiopesis Fullstop: WL14B was quite the distraction, but the next installment of Faith In Ruins should be published on the Press sometime in February – going over more of the Old Ways of the Mutants (and whoever’s smart enough to agree with them!) If you’ve made a fictional faith, spiritual system, or outright cult that you’d like to have profiled via interview similarly, lemme know. 😀
The Mutant Witch of the Wastes (ccindy.pfeffer): as long as you dont run around its fine
Sheala (sheala.olivieri): That sounds interesting, Apo. Might have to contact you about that
The Mutant Witch of the Wastes (ccindy.pfeffer): do it .. its fun to run around the wastes with ur spirutal pants down on your ankles
Sheala (sheala.olivieri): XD
Aposiopesis Fullstop: Haha!
Irk (shannonwilsonbell): haha!
NeoBokrug Elytis: Oh yes, a reminder since no meeting in a long time. If you feel like writting articles for the press, contact me or sandusky or apo
Sandling Honey: np: Mu-Ziq – Xolbe II
Drifter (wastelanddrifter): I’ve been brainstorming for that, but haven’t decided on all the details.
Aposiopesis Fullstop: Ooh. I also just remembered another project…
Aposiopesis Fullstop: But I’ll have to collaborate with Drifter a bit first. 😀
Aposiopesis Fullstop: The short of it is: I’ve got an idea for ways to make the system of Manimal hand signs easier to learn and execute. 😀
Sheala (sheala.olivieri): Oooo sounds good
The Mutant Witch of the Wastes (ccindy.pfeffer): collaboration Fox sounds like a steven seagal movie
Sheala (sheala.olivieri): Heheh
Aposiopesis Fullstop: Haha!
Drifter (wastelanddrifter): Ah ha
Mayo von Schrott (myotis.draconia): Steven Seagull
The Mutant Witch of the Wastes (ccindy.pfeffer): that sounds sweet
Sheala (sheala.olivieri): XD
Irk (shannonwilsonbell): Will there be hand signals for Sit and Stay?
Winnie Bhago (winston.chandrayaan): aaaaa =>.<= choo
Aposiopesis Fullstop: Hahaha!
Sheala (sheala.olivieri): Hey now XD
Drifter (wastelanddrifter) signs something profound.
Winnie Bhago (winston.chandrayaan): is a cat, ignores all the hand signals
Irk (shannonwilsonbell): hehe
The Mutant Witch of the Wastes (ccindy.pfeffer): its the first signs a cub learns after the sihn for “Shut up and sit on your hands”
Storm Thunders signs something obscene
Aposiopesis Fullstop: Hahaha
pünktchen (2team): kennt jemand Collin Royster
Sheala (sheala.olivieri) grits her teeth
Storm Thunders signs something about yer probable ancestry!
Winnie Bhago (winston.chandrayaan): non-chalantly extends claws and licks the back of her paw while staring
Aposiopesis Fullstop gesticulates wildly and waggles her eyebrows!
Sheala (sheala.olivieri): XD
Drifter (wastelanddrifter): Ah, I found even those unfamiliar with the hand talk knew certain obscene gestures.
ɱʋʈֆƴ Ƙαɭίɠλѡɚ (mutsy.kaligawa): 😀
Aposiopesis Fullstop: Hahaha!
NeoBokrug Elytis: You gotta know how to communicate universal words
The Mutant Witch of the Wastes (ccindy.pfeffer): you can be so happy the witch has not a single middle finger
Sheala (sheala.olivieri): Hahaha!!
Aposiopesis Fullstop: She has four hands full of middle fingers.
Irk (shannonwilsonbell): haha!
NeoBokrug Elytis: I imagine she tapes a stick there
Storm Thunders: There’s always a long thumb
Sheala (sheala.olivieri): XD
Winnie Bhago (winston.chandrayaan): use the European flip off
pünktchen (2team): does anyone know Collin Royster ?
NeoBokrug Elytis: Thank you for the tunes sandling!
Sandling Honey: Most welcome 😀
Beasil (beasil.roundfield): They were fresh
MiroAIIB: aye
Aposiopesis Fullstop: Never heard the name, no.
Winnie Bhago (winston.chandrayaan): Colin, the usually asleep?
Candide LeMay: yesh good choice of tunes, thanks
Sheala (sheala.olivieri): Aye! Great as always
Winnie Bhago (winston.chandrayaan): or different Colin?
Drifter (wastelanddrifter): Colin (thomasratmoreau) is the usually asleep one
Aposiopesis Fullstop: Sounds like a different one. The somnolent one doesn’t have a last name as such.
Winnie Bhago (winston.chandrayaan): aaaah
Sandling Honey: relevant for quickly then:
Sandling Honey: np: Ilkae – Cappuccino Summit
The Mutant Witch of the Wastes (ccindy.pfeffer): ned you are late .. we are realy lucky 😉
NeoBokrug Elytis: Sometimes I wonder if there should be RP workshops.
Winnie Bhago (winston.chandrayaan): dryhumps Ned’s leg so he doesn’t feel left out
NeoBokrug Elytis: Just to educate new folks, and other folks.
NeoBokrug Elytis: But that’s our time now!
Ned (aborted.stickfigure): danke I needed that
NeoBokrug Elytis: See you all in Fort Stygian!
Drifter (wastelanddrifter): Didn’t you mention something about RP tutors or something to that effect?
Aposiopesis Fullstop: I’ve suggested the idea before, and you said they didn’t really work well.
Sheala (sheala.olivieri): Cheers!
NeoBokrug Elytis: I did.
MiroAIIB: aye like a class for newbies
Aposiopesis Fullstop: But the RP “tutor” / ambassador thing is a good idea.
NeoBokrug Elytis: But, I thought the project that’s on hold wouldn’t be on hold this long
Aposiopesis Fullstop: Ahhh, point.
The Mutant Witch of the Wastes (ccindy.pfeffer): send them to me, i scare them off
Dexter Bogdanovich: Ílaters
Aposiopesis Fullstop: Haha!
Aposiopesis Fullstop: Or, yeah, I’m always willing to help people learn one-on-one.
Aposiopesis Fullstop: Got lots of reading material, the character creation helper, and we can just discuss ideas.
Aposiopesis Fullstop: And Booze & Blather is, I’d like to think, a relatively good place to dip your to ein.
Aposiopesis Fullstop: *toe in
Drifter (wastelanddrifter): So am I, but sometimes they ask for the full rundown and then never come back.
The Mutant Witch of the Wastes (ccindy.pfeffer): dip you in to?
Ned (aborted.stickfigure): roleplayers are fickle
Ned (aborted.stickfigure): very fickle
Aposiopesis Fullstop: Oh, yeah, that happens. They just decide there’s some thing they don’t want to compromise on, or they don’t have the time, and off they go.
Storm Thunders: and sometimes they tickle.
Aposiopesis Fullstop: Anyway. To Fort Stygian!
The Mutant Witch of the Wastes (ccindy.pfeffer): and some want to go to the other wasteland
Ned (aborted.stickfigure): I’ve tried to bring a lot of old roleplaying friends here so many times, but they keep rotating between sims that open, close, open close, which is why I stay here
Ned (aborted.stickfigure): because wastelands is consistant
