What are your favorite moments y’all??
People talking about the Squid Eater
Monty: “You’re saying it wrong. It’s pronounced Squeeter”
Czeslawa’s borderline magical ability to understand my Terrible charades…
And Mobile Triage doing it’s intended job without falling apart! I’m so happy that’s coming together so well, and that we’re finding our rhythm.
Dimitri: “You beat me this time, Micah, but next time you won’t be so lucky.”
Bertrand: “I don’t know, he is half dragon.”
Dimitri: “In that case, I give up.”
Oh! Boxing Club’s first official meeting!
And, relatedly, ‘boxing’ blueberry the Bear!
Blueberry, thank you for allowing me a post-match hug, I loved it, and I’m sure my ribs will eventually recover! (OoG I’m fine, but, y’know, in game I got a bear hug from a bear…)
Boxing was fun
The Pitball Skrimages
Thinking I’d made a bad life choice by randomly going on a mod because, “we need more artificiers,” then stepping through the door and being delighted by the sight of the “space invaders” crabs.
I loved the whole Carnival, but the highlight was watching Guillermo wrestle the bear.
Hm. Bertrand’s date was fun. Loved the shows folks put on!! The hall of mirrors was really cool, and I was surprised at how much fun I had. Guillermo v Bear was a fight for the ages.
Duelist times with Murderin Steve. Chris did such a good job with that situation.
Pitball and boxing were super fun, if tiring!!
Micah is going to be a great LARPer some day. That kid is a blast to look after.
And I loved seeing all the new faces. Makes my heart swell.
Playing pitball for my first time (due to Micah) was great fun.
The different names that Julien acquired throughout the night of the Carnival as Guillermo:
and of course
Juan Zed Salamandra!
Some highlights were definitely the drug palace, consuming the mimic elixirs and getting stuck in recursive loops, the paranoia mixed with hallucinations, and the hard crash that happened in the library where everyone was so supportive.
I had so much fun playing without any cares for a few hours, and I have to thank each and every one of you!
Don’t print that, it was off the record: A Vaast Verenberg story
There various curses I got from that wheel.
Combined with my temp maimed arm, I just kinda felt so pathetic by this morning.
"Sometimes I forget that many people did not come here to be their ‘best selves.’–me.
Getting to have some righteous familial indignation at Tashif for continuously needing medical attention all weekend.
Getting to be righteously indignant at the inaccurate representation of my profession during the surgery play.
Getting to see my first ever burlesque show. (Amazing job, everyone).
The cheerful carnival person who advertised drugs and ended their pitch with “don’t tell the Navy” whilst standing less than six inches from a member of the Navy.
Every single NPC Chris played, with a special shout out to the constantly eerily-grinning puppet.
Everything Guillermo related.
Just sitting outside after dinner, waiting for the carnival to open, enjoying the air and having lovely conversation.
Someone: “Don’t you know how to have fun, Téa?”
Me: “According to Ravil, no, I don’t.”
That was rather amazing. Another fun highlight!
Me: Time to use this elixer to turn the tide.
Elixer: Immediately fire critical
Me: explodes and falls
Looking around the table at 2 minutes to midnight as the Outer Ring crew all slowly realize that Monty is about to sound the twelfth bell right in the middle of the very tense and important speech about the upcoming Silence battle.
Then an hour later, post-battle chatting with the crew, Vaast, and Tashif to determine the new catchphrase of Port Katherine: “Oops.”
@thethornedrose I would like a cockade in the colors of the kithirian flag with the word “oops” somewhere on a button at the center
The Aetherstorm was such a cool effect!
This game I had a total galaxy brain moment when I realized that a piece of information I’ve had almost since the beginning of game was suddenly exactly what I needed.
The whole carnival was fantastic. Highlights included the bear fights with Guillermo and Vaast, the wheel of fortune, the corpse discovery, the mirror maze with Tea and Bertrand, and of course the variety and burlesque shows.
There were a lot more but I’m too tired to think of them!
Absolutely! I can do that! I, in fact, enthusiastically bought ribbon last year to make Kitheran flag cockades and had been planning to make some for Alize/selling. Sarah told me I was being too Intense, but I Knew that This Day would come. Oooh and I can cover a button. That’s always fun in small numbers.
