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 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!
➳ Occupancy has held steady, and if previous years’ trends hold, is likely to go up slightly before December before plateauing.
➳ After the end of the Long(er) Night, the default Windlight day cycle was replaced with a hazier, colder-looking one for the winter months.
➳ Neo would still like to have a custom day cycle for The Wastelands. If you have skills in bending Windlight to your will, get in touch with him!
➳ Work on the Northgate Community Gateway has resumed since the Halloween Quest was completed.
➳ A reminder that The Wastelands now has a Twitter account at https://twitter.com/Wastelands_inSL – follow for photos, updates, and more!
➳ The Dune Trapper is still inactive, pending updates.
➳ Food items do have a lower spawn rate during the Seasons of Withering and Shelter (November through February.)
➳ Neo is still weighing whether or not to allow a choice of Mushroom Hunt or Potion Quest from Doktor Aeg – at the cost of additional EXPerience and perhaps salvage.
➳ Neo also invited discussion of an idea that would double the current 50 EXP cap – but any unspent EXP would be lost after 30 days.
➳ Any changes to the EXPerience system would be rolled out with the Wild Plants update.
➳ Saul the Food Trader is still dead.
➳ This year’s limited-time Halloween Quest was released, though later than intended due to its complexity and several bugs, but was extended through November 9 to compensate.
➳ While spoilers weren’t revealed about the content of the Quest, its mechanics leverage almost every component of Experience tools to create an immersive and interactive experience – one that is no mere delivery run.
➳ Neo said it turned out to be more difficult than he’d intended it to be, for a first run – but second attempts were easier, and the nature of the Quest’s mechanics created some repeatability.
➳ The pumpkins spawned by the Quest system were a test of the Wild Plants system: plants that stay spawned and remain communicating with the inworld server for as long as possible.
ROLEPLAY & EVENTS:
➳ Neo reminds everyone that Halloween Quests are not meant to be interpreted as actually happening to characters; they’re visions and nightmares.
➳ Enormous thanks to everyone who came to or made music for Trigger Treat!
➳ After being asked for clarification after the meeting, Neo cannot confirm whether or not anything is planned for Foodmas (American Thanksgiving.)
➳ The next holiday event currently planned is Giftmas in late December.
➳ Reminder: The roleplay character template has been added to the Wiki – add yours today!

I. THE ESTATE
NeoBokrug Elytis: IT’S… TIME.
NeoBokrug Elytis: For those new here or may have forgotten, we typically talk about the three main aspects of the estate for the past month with time for questions and commencts between each aspect. The aspects are Estate, Game, RP & Events — where RP & Events is more of an openfloor discussion.
NeoBokrug Elytis: Man, I am FULL of typos today, so please bear with me.
NeoBokrug Elytis: /eme adjusts his keyboard a bit.
NeoBokrug Elytis: In estate news. Occupancy has been relatively same-ish. I expect it to go up a little before December, and stagnate again until the spring.
NeoBokrug Elytis: Well, February to be specific, that’s still winter though.
NeoBokrug Elytis: We had the Long(er) night this year, so it was nice and dark for a few DAYS. You may have noticed that when the light came back we have a different windlight, which I think is better and more suitable for the upcoming cold months.
Aposiopesis Fullstop: :D
Beatrix (mbeatrix): I like this windlight
NeoBokrug Elytis: I still want to create a day cycle specifically for The Wastelands. If anyone wants to help and you’re SUPER GREAT at Windlight and Day cycles, please let me know.
OldmanJohnson (davidhogan.hobble): yea damn it gets super dark round here, great when indoors with lighting
Beatrix (mbeatrix): I made some like this – misty
Aposiopesis Fullstop: Ooh, neat!
OldmanJohnson (davidhogan.hobble): The dusty windlight feel during the day is nice can feel myself squinting sometimes
NeoBokrug Elytis: Work on Northgate will resume this week. Getting all the halloween stuff in order is an ordeal. :)
Aposiopesis Fullstop: Hadn’t Gutter made one some time back? Was that the one we’d had?
Storm Thunders: and if the dark’s too dark on your plot, you can make a light or two that extend pretty far but aren’t strong… it makes it enough brighter to see but still feel dark.
NeoBokrug Elytis: I think that’s about it for estate things, any questions regarding that?
OldmanJohnson (davidhogan.hobble): sandusky’s lil lamps are perfect for those spots just sayin lol
Aposiopesis Fullstop: Is this daycycle the same length as the other one?
NeoBokrug Elytis: Yes.
NeoBokrug Elytis: Same “offset” too.
Aposiopesis Fullstop: Oh yeah, Sandusky’s lantern is a lifesaver for The Long Night – and the oil lamps are great for scattering anywhere! :D
Aposiopesis Fullstop: Ooh, goodgood. :D
OldmanJohnson (davidhogan.hobble): i feel like this music had done something subliminally to me but i’ve no idea what it is lmao
NeoBokrug Elytis: No questions? Alright then…
II. THE GAME
NeoBokrug Elytis: BEFORE WE START ON GAME THINGS, If there is discussion about the current Halloween Quest, please leave SPECIFICS about it OUT of the discussion. Not everyone has done it yet, and you’ll spoil the surprise.
Drifter (wastelanddrifter): It has been buggy for me, like it the HUD teleported me, then removed me from the quest area because ‘no teleporting allowed’
Sandling Honey: xD
OldmanJohnson (davidhogan.hobble): if anyone missed out on pumpkins gimmie a shout i have loads of them
NeoBokrug Elytis: Moving on to game things then. Starting with the obvious Halloween quest. I want to apologize for how up to the line of the release it was, and how rough the first few days were. I tried to make it right for folks who had issues — but I think the quest is nice and stable now.
Aposiopesis Fullstop: Yar, it didn’t have clear text about the failure at one point.
Sandling Honey: Don’t put something on top of your still enabled joypad
NeoBokrug Elytis: Meatspace had kept me from dedicating the time I wanted to put into it, I was working a lot more than I normally would have. So easily half the time I budgeted for this was eaten up.
ɱʋʈֆƴ Ƙαɭίɠλѡɚ (mutsy.kaligawa): Nom nom nom
NeoBokrug Elytis: And so the last 5 days were just a mad dash to get it done under any means. Which ended up being lots of energy drinks and averaging 3-4 hours of “sleep” a night.
NeoBokrug Elytis: But it got done, the cost was how buggy it was. :\
Aposiopesis Fullstop pats Neo comfortingly on the head, and gets her fingerprints gently scalded off.
OldmanJohnson (davidhogan.hobble): all them instances omg position after position after position i can only imagine
NeoBokrug Elytis: On the upside, the pumpkins that spawn are using the new “Wild Plants” mechanism of staying spawned for as long as possible. This is a core thing needed for that next leg of development.
Aposiopesis Fullstop: :D
Aposiopesis Fullstop: YAY, WILD PLANTS!
ɱʋʈֆƴ Ƙαɭίɠλѡɚ (mutsy.kaligawa): WOOOO! \o/
Storm Thunders: whooo
Beatrix (mbeatrix): oooh fleshy plants ;)
NeoBokrug Elytis: Because plants gotta stay there, and report in to a home server inworld, for a week or two.
OldmanJohnson (davidhogan.hobble): WL: rolled lead lol
NeoBokrug Elytis: Where as almost all salvage spawns for less than an hour at best.
OldmanJohnson (davidhogan.hobble): rolled leaf
NeoBokrug Elytis: Drifter, give the quest another go. :)
Candide LeMay: i’ve noticed (at least in the beginning of the week) that the quest pumpinks also spawned on resident land. is that a bug or feature of the plants system?
NeoBokrug Elytis: And for folks running that quest, please let me know if there are further issues. But I think I got it mostly hammered out.
NeoBokrug Elytis: That’s a bug — but I think it’s spawning on that land because auto-return is off.
NeoBokrug Elytis: So, another thing for me to fix. But until then the pumpkins are working well enough.
Goat the Devil (immortan.doge): Yeh I think one spawned right smack dab in the middle of my parcel in JY.
Goat the Devil (immortan.doge): I was like, Well hello!
Aposiopesis Fullstop: Hee!
Candide LeMay: it knows how lazy you are
NeoBokrug Elytis: There’s a LOT of moving parts to that quest. I am leveraging every component of the Experiences system that experiences has to offer except sitting on things.
Goat the Devil (immortan.doge): I still didn’t click it, if that tells you anything.
Storm Thunders cackles and runs away from the middle of Goat’s castle
ɱʋʈֆƴ Ƙαɭίɠλѡɚ (mutsy.kaligawa): Hi little pumpkin… I’m gonma smash you up now and make delicious pumpkin pie :3
NeoBokrug Elytis: Nothing goes out of SL to an external server, it’s juggling everything with one primary inworld objects that’s one script. Then the instances of the quest take over when occupied. The instances themselves are complex. I really wanted to do something different than past quests where it’s just run from location to location.
Aposiopesis Fullstop: Complex, indeed!
NeoBokrug Elytis: And in the end once you know the quest it’s pretty much that. But getting to know how to figure out the quest is it’s own ordeal. I tihnk in the end it’s a lot harder than I had intended it to be.
NeoBokrug Elytis: I know folks have been speedrunning it, letting each other know their times. :)
Aposiopesis Fullstop: :D
NeoBokrug Elytis: I also know some folks spent hours trying to figure things out, and to you folks I am extra sorry.
Goat the Devil (immortan.doge): If there is one thing I know about the WL game.
Goat the Devil (immortan.doge): Pain.
OldmanJohnson (davidhogan.hobble): honestly i went through 2 instances and 2 blunts and gave up
Goat the Devil (immortan.doge): It’s a feature, not a bug.
Aposiopesis Fullstop: Yeah, I spent like two hours trying to find the [CENSORED] in the [BLEEP] and clicking the [REDACTED] instead.
NeoBokrug Elytis: However, all the major steps of the quest build on each other, so you can take what you previously learned and use it towards the next left of the puzzle. :)
NeoBokrug Elytis: And there’s enough random in the quest to make it fun once or twice more.
Candide LeMay: you said on discord that you might have discovered a SL bug… did you?
ɱʋʈֆƴ Ƙαɭίɠλѡɚ (mutsy.kaligawa): https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7wtfhZwyrcc
NeoBokrug Elytis: The HUD also got very minor updates for this quest, mostly just removing some annoyance.
OldmanJohnson (davidhogan.hobble): i think its just my preference i enjoy doing those quests everyday for the junkyard dude saving my timer for those lol
NeoBokrug Elytis: I think switching states in scripts causes delay that I was previously unaware of.
Candide LeMay: like, deterministic delays?
NeoBokrug Elytis: Similar to the rez object delay.
Candide LeMay: or “stuff’s broken” delay
Storm Thunders: it can, but it’s not a stable amount of time
OldmanJohnson (davidhogan.hobble): this is bowser and princess toadstools babies anthem lol
NeoBokrug Elytis: Also because I was tired, I just make dumb little mistakes here and there. One was not accounting for rez-delay for a thing or two. Those mostly survived.
Sandling Honey: The only proper musical follow-up track now
OldmanJohnson (davidhogan.hobble): what was the name of that song that was a trip
OldmanJohnson (davidhogan.hobble): The Caretaker – False Memory Syndrome
OldmanJohnson (davidhogan.hobble): i’m saving that
NeoBokrug Elytis: Oh, I also leveraged parcel media to play some youtube ambience. :)
Sandling Honey: (So good job!)
Aposiopesis Fullstop: :D
ɱʋʈֆƴ Ƙαɭίɠλѡɚ (mutsy.kaligawa): :O
NeoBokrug Elytis: So, while I wanted to do many other things, I had to make shortcuts like that.
NeoBokrug Elytis: Any questions about game stuff, or non-spoiler quest stuff?
Candide LeMay: spider still broken?
Angharad Greggan waves
Aposiopesis Fullstop: I forget – does the food spawn percentage still lower during Withering and Shelter?
NeoBokrug Elytis: Candide Yes.
NeoBokrug Elytis: Apo : yes
ɱʋʈֆƴ Ƙαɭίɠλѡɚ (mutsy.kaligawa): Aww
ɱʋʈֆƴ Ƙαɭίɠλѡɚ (mutsy.kaligawa): Aww again
OldmanJohnson (davidhogan.hobble): oh year its not hoarding season anymore?
Goat the Devil (immortan.doge): Nupe.
Goat the Devil (immortan.doge): It’s killing season for your beans — season, now.
Aposiopesis Fullstop: Nope! November and December is the Season of Withering.
OldmanJohnson (davidhogan.hobble): Better carry an extra sock
ɱʋʈֆƴ Ƙαɭίɠλѡɚ (mutsy.kaligawa): :(
Candide LeMay: neo how about the choice of quest type from aeg?
Storm Thunders: We don’t name which bits wither with the cold.
Aposiopesis Fullstop: Hahaha!
Goat the Devil (immortan.doge): I feel attacked.
ɱʋʈֆƴ Ƙαɭίɠλѡɚ (mutsy.kaligawa): :3
NeoBokrug Elytis: I have decided: No choice for now. If there were an option for choice it would probably cost more EXP, and probably some salvage to grease the wheels.
ɱʋʈֆƴ Ƙαɭίɠλѡɚ (mutsy.kaligawa) runs her nails down Goat’s back…
Goat the Devil (immortan.doge): Are you saying a choice of difficulty?
Candide LeMay: no, choice of which quest you want to do
Aposiopesis Fullstop: Mushroom Hunt vs Potion Quest.
Candide LeMay: irk likes the flask, i like the shrooms and we keep getting the other ones :p
Goat the Devil (immortan.doge): Oh derp. Aeg.
NeoBokrug Elytis: Oh and, if you missed the group notice. Aeg has a very small chance to offer you an off-season pumpkin for his tasks, has for more than a year now.
Goat the Devil (immortan.doge): This is what happens when you don’t read.
OldmanJohnson (davidhogan.hobble): dude in the junkyard gave me a mission to get a box 20ft away he gave me 2 rubble lmao
ɱʋʈֆƴ Ƙαɭίɠλѡɚ (mutsy.kaligawa): lol
Aposiopesis Fullstop: Sometimes he’s lazy!
OldmanJohnson (davidhogan.hobble): but i’ve also got some close calls and nice loot
Goat the Devil (immortan.doge): Sounds fair Oldman.
OldmanJohnson (davidhogan.hobble): 3% one time
OldmanJohnson (davidhogan.hobble): clutched it for 5 scrits
NeoBokrug Elytis: Speaking of, I also chose for the quest to not have a pumpkin cost this year. That way people can make some things with their pumpkins.
Goat the Devil (immortan.doge): Bless you.
Goat the Devil (immortan.doge): Because the RNG wrecked me in pumpkins.
Goat the Devil (immortan.doge): I was out grinding them sands.
Candide LeMay: me too, i got way too many
Aposiopesis Fullstop: Yeah, they were REALLY hard finding.
Goat the Devil (immortan.doge): And getting dunked on.
OldmanJohnson (davidhogan.hobble): i got like 25 of them oops
NeoBokrug Elytis: Candide stole them all Goat.
ɱʋʈֆƴ Ƙαɭίɠλѡɚ (mutsy.kaligawa): O_O
Candide LeMay: pumpkin bomb bomb pumpkin bomb … my typical run
Goat the Devil (immortan.doge): So did Oldman it seems.
NeoBokrug Elytis: Now you all have reasons to use those flayers in the wild.
Goat the Devil (immortan.doge): For gardening?
ɱʋʈֆƴ Ƙαɭίɠλѡɚ (mutsy.kaligawa): Pest control
Goat the Devil (immortan.doge): :>
OldmanJohnson (davidhogan.hobble): that sounded wet
OldmanJohnson (davidhogan.hobble): jokes on you
Goat the Devil (immortan.doge): My apologies.
ɱʋʈֆƴ Ƙαɭίɠλѡɚ (mutsy.kaligawa): O_o
OldmanJohnson (davidhogan.hobble): lol
Aposiopesis Fullstop: I assume that seasonal-thing spawn is also random, just a different rate or random?
Aposiopesis Fullstop: *rate of random
Goat the Devil (immortan.doge): So, are we allowed to ask about the next iteration of the game you are working on. The WL2, as it were.
NeoBokrug Elytis: It just gets mixed in with normal salvage and trader offerings.
Goat the Devil (immortan.doge): Not sure how mature that is as far as things go.
Goat the Devil (immortan.doge): I’m told or had heard for example, recipes and items are getting blown up and redone.
Aposiopesis Fullstop: Hrm. Maybe some folks just had a lot more time available for scavenging, then.
Goat the Devil (immortan.doge): At some point.
Goat the Devil (immortan.doge): And that they won’t include BV anymore.
Candide LeMay: apo at one point i got 5 pumpkins from Alden so i think i was just on the pumpkin list this year
OldmanJohnson (davidhogan.hobble): tbh i got 25 pumpkins cause i’ve been doing mad laps of this place every morning as a release after work with a blunt hah
NeoBokrug Elytis: I’ve got a small idea with big implications I hope you would give me feedback on. Let me type it up.
Tintosha (tayasha.tammas): \o.o
Aposiopesis Fullstop: September’s Community Meeting went into the V2 plans a bit more thoroughly: https://press.the-wastelands.org/2021/09/07/community-meeting-september-2-2021/
Sheala (sheala.olivieri): good way to unwind, Old man
Goat the Devil (immortan.doge): I meant to read that Apo.
OldmanJohnson (davidhogan.hobble): its so chill just to do laps and listen to music after work its great
Sheala (sheala.olivieri): you get proper sucked into it. very therapeutic
OldmanJohnson (davidhogan.hobble): cave runs ftw
Candide LeMay: and then you find a bomb
Sheala (sheala.olivieri): yeah!
Aposiopesis Fullstop: Keeps you on your toes, and your toes rattling around in your boots!
Sheala (sheala.olivieri): haha, well we try not to think of that one Candide
NeoBokrug Elytis: I have been thinking abou EXPerience a bit. I think I want to double the cap you can. But have any experience gained over the past 30 days expire on the 30th day. Any experience spent would be spent from the oldest experience. If you logged in with the HUD, it would let you know how much was lost on equip. This way you can have a play session to bank a bunch of experience for something coming up in the next couple weeks. And at the same time if you play regularly nothing is really lost.
OldmanJohnson (davidhogan.hobble): always twice in a row if it happens 3 in a row ill falcon punch my screen lol
Sheala (sheala.olivieri): XD
OldmanJohnson (davidhogan.hobble): experience is super easy to stack up
NeoBokrug Elytis: And just to clarify, I am not ready to work on that. I have several other things I wanna get done.
Sheala (sheala.olivieri): you messed my hair up XD
Candide LeMay: any increase of the exp cap is welcome from my side
NeoBokrug Elytis: For events like Halloween where a lto more people are running for crates, it can be harder.
Goat the Devil (immortan.doge): That does sound like a good idea. Especially if you also add items or mechanics that can take up a lot of experience.
Goat the Devil (immortan.doge): It just adds more flexibility.
Goat the Devil (immortan.doge): But from my original comments, my simple gist, or comment is this. I’m all for added complexity, and challenge. But I would hope that two things are achieved (and I’m too dumb to think of how), but 1. Keep oldies in the community engaged and having fun but 2. Not make things so soul-crushingly hard and obtuse we guarantee no new player adoption.
OldmanJohnson (davidhogan.hobble): i bet if i left here with 0 and went to the dunes all the way there and back id be clsoe enough to 50
Aposiopesis Fullstop: Yeah, sometimes I cap out quicker than I can spend it. That might give me the excuse to LET myself scavenge more often, too.
OldmanJohnson (davidhogan.hobble): would be nice to say maybe if i completed a quest spend the remainder on another roll of loot that he offers
OldmanJohnson (davidhogan.hobble): spend xp at the healin machine for hud medkits lol
NeoBokrug Elytis: Haha nah. Just make ’em
OldmanJohnson (davidhogan.hobble): my fingers are sore af
NeoBokrug Elytis: Get one of them fancy bags I made.
OldmanJohnson (davidhogan.hobble): theyre way too expensive
NeoBokrug Elytis: Eh.
OldmanJohnson (davidhogan.hobble): i mean the medkits
NeoBokrug Elytis: Instant heals are nice.
Candide LeMay: the ratbags seem to be quite sensitive to the placement. i can’t figure out why moving it like 10cm makes it work/not work
OldmanJohnson (davidhogan.hobble): mechanical parts are nicer
Candide LeMay: especially at the machines
OldmanJohnson (davidhogan.hobble): mmm mm mmm
NeoBokrug Elytis: They may warrant an upate then
Aposiopesis Fullstop: I think a higher cap would also let people scavenge longer. And since that’s sort of the core gameplay, and what gets people exploring the environment and interacting with others, anything that can make that have a good… yield, I guess, for longer would be a good idea.
NeoBokrug Elytis: I am very glad I did not hear this song last week Sadnling.
NeoBokrug Elytis: Also thanks for the music Sanding!
Tintosha (tayasha.tammas): haha
Candide LeMay: you rez it at the healing machine feeder and start rezzing things and it aborts … so you move it up a little bit and then it works
Sandling Honey: hahaha
Sandling Honey: Most welcome!
Tintosha (tayasha.tammas): joe hawley ❤
Storm Thunders: how about throwing extra xp into the stew? :D
Sandling Honey: Last week I was eventually deliberately trying to make you insane. I am sorry for that.
NeoBokrug Elytis: haha
Aposiopesis Fullstop: Hee!
ɱʋʈֆƴ Ƙαɭίɠλѡɚ (mutsy.kaligawa): :D
Storm Thunders: too late Sandling!
NeoBokrug Elytis: Sorry I missed Trigger-Treat too!
OldmanJohnson (davidhogan.hobble): that lil teddy bear nearly gave me an aneurism
OldmanJohnson (davidhogan.hobble): that music was a trip lol
NeoBokrug Elytis: I think I will probably roll out the EXP changes with wild plants. Since they will require EXP to participate.
OldmanJohnson (davidhogan.hobble): cool, its always sketchy harvesting ol
OldmanJohnson (davidhogan.hobble): i’m watchin all you mofos
NeoBokrug Elytis: Wild plants will require communal care before anyone can loot anything.
Candide LeMay: peeing on them?
OldmanJohnson (davidhogan.hobble): takin turns peeing he said communal
NeoBokrug Elytis: IDK about you candide, but that is not how I care for plants.
Goat the Devil (immortan.doge): HA. There’s a mechanic to add.
NeoBokrug Elytis: Any other questions about game stuff?
Goat the Devil (immortan.doge): WL: Toilet
Verity Goodnight: There’s some of them at the Poopseum
NeoBokrug Elytis waves his arms around.
NeoBokrug Elytis: Is this not a big enough sandbox?
Aposiopesis Fullstop: This is The Wastelands. It’d be WL: Hole In The Sand at best. :D
Storm Thunders: we bleed to feed taters, why not? haha
ɱʋʈֆƴ Ƙαɭίɠλѡɚ (mutsy.kaligawa): :>
Verity Goodnight: The Poopseum would probably welcome some deposits
III. THE ROLEPLAY & EVENTS
NeoBokrug Elytis: Before we move on to roleplay, I just wanted to throw my two cents in regarding the Halloween quest:
NeoBokrug Elytis: 1 cent: It’s supposed to be a spooky nightmare or something, and if people have similar nightmares that’s okay. The unseen antagonist might be a WL: Boogyman
NeoBokrug Elytis: Or 2 cent: Might be another good explanation for Manimals.
NeoBokrug Elytis: Now is time for open floor RP & Events Discussion. After that Warzone in Stygian!
Candide LeMay: is the next big event giftmas?
Aposiopesis Fullstop: Thank you to everyone who attended / made noise for / dressed up at Trigger Treat last Saturday! There was a ton of great music, and everyone looked rad, and I hope it was some degree of fun. :D
NeoBokrug Elytis: I think so.
ɱʋʈֆƴ Ƙαɭίɠλѡɚ (mutsy.kaligawa): Woo!
Aposiopesis Fullstop: Yar, I don’t think there’s going to be a Gathering of the Tribes this year.
ɱʋʈֆƴ Ƙαɭίɠλѡɚ (mutsy.kaligawa): There’s thanks giving too?
Sandling Honey: Extra applause for Neo as well, whom was somewhere in between multiple worlds that day, both physically and mentally
ɱʋʈֆƴ Ƙαɭίɠλѡɚ (mutsy.kaligawa): ooh
ɱʋʈֆƴ Ƙαɭίɠλѡɚ (mutsy.kaligawa): yay Neo!
NeoBokrug Elytis: Foodmas
Aposiopesis Fullstop: Foodmas is… minimally event-y, though, generally.
OldmanJohnson (davidhogan.hobble): i tried to last as long as i could at the event so i just dropped some tips and bounced i was annihilated
OldmanJohnson (davidhogan.hobble): damn yo
OldmanJohnson (davidhogan.hobble): the twins nearly knocked me out lol
OldmanJohnson (davidhogan.hobble): lol
ɱʋʈֆƴ Ƙαɭίɠλѡɚ (mutsy.kaligawa): wha? xD
Aposiopesis Fullstop: I don’t think there was anything for it last year at all, in fact? I don’t think there was a care package, that is.
OldmanJohnson (davidhogan.hobble): lmao
ɱʋʈֆƴ Ƙαɭίɠλѡɚ (mutsy.kaligawa): yeah, I double clicked sorry
OldmanJohnson (davidhogan.hobble): s’all good :)
Aposiopesis Fullstop: Roleplaywise, Booze & Blather still happens every Thursday at 6pm SLT, and is a fine place to get started with your character, if you’ve been wanting to get in on things!
NeoBokrug Elytis: BRB gunna feed the cat. :)
ɱʋʈֆƴ Ƙαɭίɠλѡɚ (mutsy.kaligawa): oooh
Goat the Devil (immortan.doge): The cat has spoken, is what he is trying to say.
ɱʋʈֆƴ Ƙαɭίɠλѡɚ (mutsy.kaligawa): Next few weeks is my rl birthday, I got the Friday off so maybe I’ll come for a drink xD
Aposiopesis Fullstop: And I’ve still got a bunch of notecards and character creation guides and oddments, for anyone looking to get goin’.
Goat the Devil (immortan.doge): MEOW MUTHA FUCKA
Goat the Devil (immortan.doge): Feed me.
Aposiopesis Fullstop: Hooray! :D
ɱʋʈֆƴ Ƙαɭίɠλѡɚ (mutsy.kaligawa): Damn I need to do that profile thing for the website…
Aposiopesis Fullstop: Oh yes! Do eet. :D
Goat the Devil (immortan.doge): Yeh feel you Mutsy, been thinking the same thing.
Goat the Devil (immortan.doge): I can see it already.
Goat the Devil (immortan.doge): LORD OF JUNKYARD
ɱʋʈֆƴ Ƙαɭίɠλѡɚ (mutsy.kaligawa): Oh?
ɱʋʈֆƴ Ƙαɭίɠλѡɚ (mutsy.kaligawa): hahaha!
Goat the Devil (immortan.doge): Just gotta think of the rest.
NeoBokrug Elytis: And yeah, if you folks want to be on the wiki for folks to find reasons to RP with you; I’ve got a good system setup: https://wiki.the-wastelands.org/Category:Player_Characters
NeoBokrug Elytis: Not details about who you are other than appearance, where you can generally be found, and several rumors that are good plot-hooks.
NeoBokrug Elytis: No finer details than that.
ɱʋʈֆƴ Ƙαɭίɠλѡɚ (mutsy.kaligawa): a profile snapshot too?
Aposiopesis Fullstop: Apo’s still wanting to interview folks who’ve created original faiths / religions / cults / whathaveyou for their characters.
Storm Thunders: If there’s other frens of Bigg Gote, drop Chav a note!
Aposiopesis Fullstop: :D
Candide LeMay: haven’t seen chave in a while
Candide LeMay: not sure she’s even seen the big oil next door to her
Storm Thunders: Rls been keeping her hopping
Goat the Devil (immortan.doge): I’ll make sure to send her a fruit basket.
ɱʋʈֆƴ Ƙαɭίɠλѡɚ (mutsy.kaligawa): :D
ɱʋʈֆƴ Ƙαɭίɠλѡɚ (mutsy.kaligawa): WL: Frut Basket
Goat the Devil (immortan.doge): Just don’t tell Meg.
