    • A not-happy Life Update

      2 years ago

      CalPal

      Well, this one is more of a bummer than any other life update journals I have written before. I wanted to write one before, but life had been so busy that I could never sit down and take time for myself. Well now I have that time, but not in the way I would have wanted. Also, to anyone who has noticed me being unusually quiet the past few days, between the new site and the following news, this is why I have been absent for a while.

      I'll be straight to the bitter point: my grandmother passed away today. The past few days have been tragic, watching her last few days and saying my final farewells. I had known that this day would come before, ever since she had been diagnosed with Alzheimer in the mid-2000's, but you're never really prepared for the last few days prior to the day itself. I was at work for part of the day when I received the text, so I've taken the rest of the week off, along with everyone else in the family.

      She had worked as a elderly-care nurse herself, so it was good to see her so well-treated by fellow nurses. She was sweet and caring in ways only a grandmother could be, and though she is not biologically my grandmother, she is my grandmother through-and-through. I cannot say whether she may or may not have remembered me in her last days, but I know I will never forget her.

      Beyond this bitter fact of life, I have done quite well for myself: I've been working at Toyota for over half a year now, and am just started training on driving Raymond standing forklifts for working the vast majority of the warehouse. The co-workers are great people and I wouldn't have asked for a better job, one I find much easier than working at Costco (the coffee might have helped a bit now).

      And through the massive amount of money I make there, I now own a brand new car! A 2015 PriusC, a nifty little hybrid that saves me a tonne on gas and even isn't more costly on insurance than my old Aveo was. There's something special about owning your first-ever car.

      Well, that's that, my latest life update. Not a pretty one, but it's... definitely one.

    • Happy Birthday to Me!

      CalPal

      Woo, reached my 23rd year of life! Holy crap, has lots happened between my last birthday and this one, it almost requires a whole journal update on life!

      But that will come another time...

    • Freeway Fun in Canada, or How My Car is Dead

      2 years ago

      CalPal

      So I'm not a car guy, let me profess that before we start. I had no idea what an alternator was, kept pronouncing it as an actuator when I did hear about it, but I sure as shit won't be forgetting that anytime soon.

      So I'm driving down the freeway going 120 bucks an hour (120 km/h, or roughly 80 mph for you whacky Americans), just finishing a day at work and hoping to make it back home in no time, when my car suddenly seizes up a bit and my brakes get awfully stiff to press. Sure enough, I'm slowing down faster than I should be, so up go the hazard lights and me pulling off to the right side of the freeway before I become more of a danger myself.

      Well, the car ain't starting up anytime soon - no popped tires (which I thought I had at first), nothing leaking or anything, but it won't start up. Call my parents up to come help me as soon as they can, which leaves me waiting on the side of the freeway where, remember, cars are all going 120 km / 80 mph right by me in just the right-hand lane.

      You ever experience feeling vehicles move that fast near you? Try dozens of 18-wheelers blowing past you, it soothes the soul like the sound of smooth jazz accompanied by the sounds of a human being mauled by a hungry pack of hyenas.

      Anyways, a tow truck guy comes, tells me the problem, then covers me from behind until my parents get there and pick me up. We have the car towed to a nearby garage, and let me tell you: seeing your car towed like that is an awfully weird experience.

      So that's where I am now. Lots of fun tonight.

      ... It's beautiful.

      I just bought and downloaded the Witcher series. I'm going to play them now before I have to go to sleep.

      Those two sentences were never fathomable with my previous laptop.

      Words fall utterly short of just how amazing it feels to have a proper gaming PC right here, before me.

      I will be able to handle the Witcher 3 on recommended settings.

      Recommended. Settings. Not minimum. Recommended.

      How are you doing, Calvin?

      • Amazing_Cam

        2 years ago

        I've got a pretty good job working for a company that manufactures parts for Toyota, so once we get settled back down, getting internet is on my to-do list.

        I'll probably only be around about once a week, but I'll be around.

      • CalPal

        2 years ago

        And definitely try to make more time to talk to us all again! You've been gone for ages now, it'll be nice to have you back.

      • CalPal

        2 years ago

        If you mentioned it, I must have not been particularly attentive, because wow. Holy shit, I did not see this one coming.

        But yeah, all the best for the both - nay, three of you now.

      • Amazing_Cam

        2 years ago

        Thank you. I'm almost certain that I had mentioned the pregnancy to you and several others, but I have also been absent for quite some time.

        We moved into our new apartment a couple months ago, and we don't have internet yet, hence the lack of Cam on the teeths. That is an issue I hope to solve in the next couple of weeks. (Taking advantage of the hospital free wifi at the moment.)

        All in all, things have been going pretty well on my end.

      • CalPal

        2 years ago

        I'm speechless. I honestly would never have expected you to become a dad now. Well shit, congratulations!

        I'll send you a recap here in a minute. Girlfriend stole the computer and is refusing to share.

      • CalPal

        3 years ago

        Yeah, I'll have to catch myself up on that stuff. Haven't really been following that thread for a while now, so I feel a little bad about that.

      • Amazing_Cam

        3 years ago

        At any rate, you should totally post in Ragnarok. I don't have to go to class for another four hours and I just had a fantastic nap so RPing sounds great.

      • CalPal

      • CalPal

        3 years ago

        Doing fine. Just getting a bit more organizing for the D&D session. Finally posted interested in the Official D&D thread here on RT, so that'll guarantee me at least one or two more people, which is what I want to start with.

        Otherwise, just kicking back and taking it easy. Guess my mom and sister went to Toronto for a bit of the day, leaving me home alone.

    • Amazing_Cam

      3 years ago

      How are you today, sir?

      • Amazing_Cam

        3 years ago

        Best thing to do would be to report to Mega on board the Ragnarok. Everything happening those who were inside the comms tower when it collapsed is an isolated incident.

        But in all, what do you think of the start to my end-of-days arc? So far, I'm really proud of it.

      • CalPal

        Mhm, I've been noticing. Gotta find a good spot to jump in.

      • Amazing_Cam

        3 years ago

        If you have the time for it, I'd appreciate you hopping back into the AOB scene. The thread is moving again and I'm putting some pretty heavy-hitting shit into motion. It'd be grate to see you posting again.

      • CalPal

        3 years ago

        Same here. At least anti-biotics are making it feel a little better now. Just a little.

        Sounds like it'll be a great time. You going to do We're the Millers and smuggle some dope on your way back?

      • CalPal

        3 years ago

        Second date. First one we went to see Captain America in theatres, 3D.

        Yeah, I'll be sure to be as safe as humanly possible down there, but there's gonna be so much I wanna do down there! Probably gonna leave my laptop stuff all behind, so I'll be gone for that week, but I'm gonna try and finish up the SoIaF / GoT series while I'm up there. Otherwise, it's just a lot of drinking, lying in the sun, swimming and shit-tonne of vacationing fun in belle Mexico!

      • Firenomad

        3 years ago

        Sounds like a good date. First one?

        So are you visiting for vacation, a missions trip, or something? I hope you have fun, just be careful down there man.

      • CalPal

        3 years ago

        Ah, nice.

        Actually, it was a lunch date, and I think it ended on a very good note. Had lunch in a cafe, walked around in a park, then she drove me home and we kissed in her car for a while before I let her go. So all in all, I think I did rather well on that date.

        Mexico's gonna be a blast! No clue what I can do down there, but we'll be down there for Cinco de Mayo, so I suspect there'll be gratuitous amounts of drinking involved on that trip XD.

      • Firenomad

        3 years ago

        Sounds like good times. You going out to dinner for the date? What will you be up too in Mexico? I'm doing alright. Just getting my affairs in order. I'm leaving for a job in Montana on Sunday, will be there for about six months. It will be a good job but I won't have much internet out there.

      • CalPal

        3 years ago

        Fare pretty well. Even got myself a nice date today after being back from Ottawa! And then finally, Mexico in a few days! So this week is looking awesome. What about you?

      Just thought you'd want to know that despite failing its kickstarter, that game you talked about a while ago "Project Awakened" has been approved through the Steam Greenlight process, so it looks as though it's still being developed. See here for details. They're hinting at a posible beta in november with a 2014 release to follow.

      SOB:

      Historically, I am operating within the framework laid out in AOB when discopete019 was returned to the RP and operated inside his own group and periodically interacted within the AOB RP.

      At present, I am dealing with a loose end. Specifically, Lambchop wanted an iceberg. I provided same and now he doesn't want to deal with it.

      I have received no response yet regarding what to do with your 3 AI brothers that still retain their memory.

      Unless I receive some sort of decision, I will keep them with me.

      As for your 3 brothers that have been infused and converted, I am going to retain those at a minimum as their identity is - for the moment - lost.

      • DustBunny01

        5 years ago

        It would appear that you have gotten approval.

        Pod is on its way.

        Catch.

      • CalPal

        5 years ago

        AI's are not a power. Sky could take them out blindfolded. I'm not exactly fully following the whole situation you're in, but I don't think anyone is going to bring up a mess with 3 AIs being brought on the ship so I can, at the very least, talk to them once.

      • DustBunny01

        5 years ago

        Cam has been jumping my ass regarding powers and even suggested banning me.

        Either get approval from him and I will ship them to you or figure out a way to get over here and chat with them prior to blowing up the planet.

      • CalPal

        5 years ago

        Dust, Sky has mentioned that Alex is a dumb AI compared to him. Alex would logically be comparable to the AIs which are my 3 brothers - that seems to make sense. I think Sky could handle an attack from 3 AIs, if worst case happens. Then again, they would have no incentive to do so, since I'm their bloody half-brother.

        I'm not sure which part of this is a "tough order".

      • DustBunny01

        5 years ago

        That is a tough order there.

        Your character knows that they exist but he does not know I have them. He doesn't even know that the Techno-Masons have vacated the planet...

        Alright, how does this sound. Alex gets bored and asks you to snoop around on the planet prior to Sky blowing it away. You permit it and then Alex finds that the Techno-Masons have suddenly and mysteriously vacated their digs at the Asgard University.

        You then put in a call to me and sneak over to Atalanta in a shuttle. We then hook them up in an isolated environment and you can have a conversation.

        Other than that, I can't think of a logical way for you to talk to your AI brothers.

        It is either that or you convince Cam to let you have the three left intact.

      • CalPal

        5 years ago

        Okay, keeping them and talking to them are two completely different things. At the least, if I can't keep them, I want to talk to them. There's no violation of the rules regarding that, and it would be extremely unfair to hold back on me my 3 half-brothers for no fair reason.

      • DustBunny01

        5 years ago

        So far, the Admins have not responded to my question/request. When they do, you will get either three new AI brothers (what you do with them will be interesting) or silence.

        Technically, my character hates AIs so there is no way I'm going to allow them in anything approaching electronic equipment of my ship. At present, they are sitting in a box in a storage case.

        I would suggest that you get Cam to approve the transfer. What deal you have to make with him is up to you.

      • CalPal

        5 years ago

        Can I at least have some sort of communication with them? That's the least I could ask for.

      • DustBunny01

        5 years ago

        I'm sorry but the decision rests with the Admins as this is a power decision. If Cam approves the transfer, I will contact you in the RP. If not, you will never know that I have your brothers. Sorry.

      • CalPal

        5 years ago

        You should directly tell CalPal that I have the 3 AI brothers in the RP, at the least. I'll make the decision there.

      In reply to CalPal, #9676:

      (You were the only player that displayed any desire to enter the Chakra Arc and we exchanged numerous PMs as you recall. I have no desire nor intention to 'force' people to play within the confines of the Chakra Arc as most players seemed more than willing to do their own things in the RP, such as create gangs, go to bars or sit out on sniping missions. This has been the norm in -OB from the start, such as sucking on mushrooms, falling out of towers or off roofs or fly off and crash in the woods.

      The U.I.F. was an obvious target but no where has their been any desire or intent to go after the U.I.F. in Asgard. Instead, other players simply created their own insurrectionist cells or gangs and trashed them. I had the intent prior to working on your back story to have the U.I.F. capture you and put you on trial but certain comments by others nixed that.

      As far as getting people to care, they don't now and they won't in the future. I have been working to condense the arc down so that there can be two major events that might be of interest. However, with Megafire's God on a leash, it seems pointless to continue as Sarah can simply wish it all away and that is an end to it. Why do you think that I shut it down and Retcon-ed it. Having the 12th go up against one, then a second god is interesting. Having a war of the gods is pointless.

      As far as pushing out your character...I have tried to keep the Chakra Arc functioning on both military necessity as well as a form of military logic. It makes no sense what-so-ever to send you out with an AI in your head to battle those who know who you are and have a strong desire to rip Alex out of your head.)

      • DustBunny01

        I have to disagree. The Retcon would not have gone that far. The Chakra Arc started well after the RP had begun.

        As far as yet another transition...While the RP on Tribute remains, it no longer is a factor in the RP. If Mega and Sky transition off, then SOB goes into the trash can of this RP's history. Which is worse, dismissing the entire SOB storyline as yesterday's old news or retcon-ing out a part of it.

        When they get it settled out, we will just pull up states and start over somewhere else. Brilliant idea. Seen that rodeo before.

      • CalPal

        What you were doing is basically retconning a bunch of things that happened throughout SOB already, going back as far as the very first pages. Mega and Sky have never said anything prior about wanting to retcon anything that's happened in SOB; they just want something new, like the transition from WMB to SOB.

      • DustBunny01

        5 years ago

        Considering that Discopete is now on his own little arc to the inner colonies and if your suspicions are correct that Megafire and Skysong are going to fly off in the future, the RP is pretty much dead.

        Which, when you consider these two independent missions without asking anyone to attend, why was there this huge crapfest about the Chakra Arc. If Mega and Sky are going off to play with themselves, what is the difference between that and what I was doing...

      • CalPal

        5 years ago

        If you're saying that the Chakara arc continues in SOB, then I'll be content to lead a stealth mission, if it's still possible at this point. I might try and convince Sky and Mega to stay in orbit over Freyja with our new ship before they have any ideas to start leaving, maybe take care of a few outstanding matters on the planet.

        You know I wouldn't fire the first bullet if the mission says I can't fire bullets or risk a mission failure. As for who I'd take, I'm leaning towards either Indy or Tzer, more so the latter. They seem like the two best options to have on a stealth mission. If the stealth and recon is absolutely essential, I'll emphasize that point and will declare the mission a failure and pull out if anything else happens. That you can have my word on.

      • DustBunny01

        5 years ago

        Sorry to disagree but every time that Sarah gets involved, her powers increase. Cam made a rule of no - or limited - powers and boned Spartan up the posterior in the process. Yet, Megafire gets to keep his little robotic god. The crystal crap I can tolerate as a necessary evil but a god on a leash...

        As far as re-writing, you were the only person significantly impacted. All AgentIndy had to do was simply retcon the dying of Zero. The mission to acquire the so called "fix" was idiotic as nothing specific was collected and the person tasked with actually collecting it wandered off and only reappeared in the RP as we were getting ready to leave. This has been a major problem in the RP for some time and it has been getting on my nerves more and more.

        As far as working it out, I have. The arc continues in the group. With the Techno-Masons soon to be out of the picture, you can easily select a team and go out and collect people for interrogation, plant bugs, etc. so we can have a look inside the U.I.F.

        Unfortunately, I have yet to see any indication from any player that they can progress from shooting everything in site to just sneaking and skulking about and gathering intel. Have You? Who would you take on a stealth mission?

      • CalPal

        5 years ago

        I know, I wanted to see how this played out mostly through my own curiosity. Drake was not involved from the very get-go, or to my knowledge he never was. It was when you wrote him in that I became even more engaged with your Arc.

        As well, while I cannot speak on behalf of the other characters, my understanding is that Mega's limiting Sarah as a side-character, not intending to have her engage directly in combat but using her only in dire situations such as the one where the Church and ONI forces have begun to invade our outpost. While I can understand why this might be frustrating, that is NOT an excuse to retcon an arc that has been going on since the very beginning of SOB, especially if it involves re-writing people who've interacted with the arc and have something to gain or lose from it.

        Finally, in regards to my part, there were times when I felt like I could contribute little to the Arc. While I understand your rational and it makes perfect sense, it leads only to a crappy RP experience for myself to be in a situation where I can only assist other people - yourself, for the most part - in this arc and that's it. I want to actually feel more involved in the arc, but these limitations of what I can and can't do ultimately threw me off track when other things, or nothing, started happening.

        Look, it's a shitty situation, I can see that, but retconning everything that's happened will only make things worse. The best we can do is just accept what's happened and work around it. I don't know what else to say other than asking other people what they would've wanted to see from this arc and adapting it for whatever adventures we have in the future.

      I suppose I was too subtle vague.
      That's Greenhorn in disguise, I suppose I should have just put "A man who is clearly Greenhorn in a cheap costume beard approaches you."
      Instead of just talking about cheese and wearing a green tux, and having the last name malachite. The earpiece should have raised some questions at least.
      Oh well, that's a fumble on my part.

        It's become irrelevant.

        It had been your turn in the Password thread for a year and someone posted a "hello?" comment, so I figured I'd let ya know. Then someone else started the game back up again so . . . here we are.

        Oh, that happens all the time, but it never actually posts duplicates. Anyways, whatever your original post was is gone, so you'll actually have to post again.

      I believe the best course of action for you to follow is to follow the posts.

      I believe that discopete stated he left in a Pelican and then left orbit in a freighter.

      Asgard Control would be the first place to check. You have a time reference regarding the Pelican so any ship departing orbit would not be worth checking but those within a reasonable time frame would.

      You could then send out a ghost AI to each freighter to determine if it was met by a pelican prior to departure within the time frame. Then, when LittleRedLie is on line, have your ghost AI contact her.

      Seems that we are a bit shy of numbers for the mission. I posted a comment on GR33NMaN profile yesterday.

      I will be off line for a time but back later. If necessary, we will try again Saturday or Sunday.

      It is below the Sigman Outpost regular group and opposite the RvB 9th Season Group.

      Check out the mission profile in the Admin Group. See if there is anything you want to add as you will probably be leading the mission.

      I'm going to start the mission after we tidy up the current arc; you get to give the briefing and I'll fly the Pelican.

      I expect one other person with us (Lambchop) as Tara remains stuck pending action by discopete to finalize or progress his arc that involves her.
