Time to revive this old thread, I think. Will try to keep things smaller from now on. That means on the one smaller chapters that are easier to complete and on the other less npcs and rooms that are involved. After reading the whole RP again, I think thats the best way to go. I will try to keep things lighthearted, but the basic mood will be less happy in this chapter.
As always: if there are any questions, feel free to write me.

Post Re: [RP]Cydonia Rising (OOC)
I've kinda been keeping track since this came back to the top and Chapter 3 started. I'll have to go back and read through time permitting, but a thought struck me.

Given that Snow has cybernetic implants galore, it's fairly probable that the Umiak created some kind of Mind Machine Interface between Snow and whatever equipment they were using to control her.

While she's free of most of that equipment, the stuff that's in her brain meats is kind of stuck there. She's terrified of the humans she can't sense, and perhaps even moreso by the Loroi that she can. A possible avenue for helping her might be to study the Umiak's MMI and see if you can't rig up something of your own; technologically based telepathy. It wouldn't give humans any actual ability to send or receive telepathic signals to regular Loroi, but a non-invasive brain scanner mounted to a wifi transmitter would be able to let humans 'speak' and be detected by her.

It does introduce possible dilemma's. Do you try to benefit or learn from the fruits of abhorrently unethical research? Even if it's to help the victims? What is the correct path to helping Snow recover? Utilising her implants, or removing them and teaching her how to live again?

Just some thoughts that were kicking around when I woke up this morning.

Take your time sunphoenix, no need to rush. :)

About snow: At the moment, the players don't know what exactly the Umiak did to her. She is very afraid, as she can't sense or see the humans around her. Murasaki speculated about a few things, but doesn't know enough about the Loroi to be sure. Twilightsaber had some thoughts about Snows past, but doesn't know enough abot her, too.
There are a lot of implants stuffed into her and Razor Ones thoughts about this dilema are very good. Thanks for sharing them.
In short: You don't know what those implants do. They might be able to do good things and help you (as well as her) or hurt her (and/or you). On the other hand, removing them or accidentally aktive one could do more harm than good as well. There are many ways around this and ways to help her, just take your time.

"What Do We Do With The Results of Unethical Experimentation?"
http://www.popbioethics.com/2011/09/wha ... mentation/

In my opinion, illegally obtained data SHOULD be used. Image that NASA where to deploy a new orbital telescope only to have a hacker hijack it later. People where hurt and threatened to obtain access codes, maybe even murdered. The hacker then tries to earn a buck by selling control back to NASA.

During the period when the hacker controls the telescope the hacker plays around with it and stumblers on an until then unknown asteroid heading for earth. The hackers pre warning gives NASA and others ten years to launch a rocket engine to the asteroid to gently change it course causing a near miss rather then an extinction event hit. It is clear from NASA's intended schedule for the telescope that they would have missed the asteroid.

Do we:
A: Use the criminally obtained data to save all life on earth from extinction?
or
B: Ignore the incoming asteroid on then grounds that knowledge of it was obtained unethically?

For Snow this mean that there is an option to use some of the stuff put in her to save her. Probes to pleasure senses in the brain for reward could be use to lower her fear of people. The crude amplifier the Umiak built could perhaps be reassembled and it's function reversed to instead lessen her powers to limit the danger until a proper reversed amplifier could be obtained. There is also a loroi with stunted sanzi in the group due to a head injury. Maybe that brain damage could surgically be replicated to, again to reduce the danger of Snows power. There are plenty of blind people living full lives and so could Snow. If her powers could be suppressed until she recovers mentally then she could become a Farseer and those are treated with the deepest respect in loroi society and blindness, even if it would be incurable would probably not be a problem. And if the loroi do not want an extra Farseer, humanity could surely have use for her talents, using carrot rather then stick to motivate her.

Just my observations as an outsider.

I will wait for the others to reply to the current posts and I need a bit of time to flesh out a new post from Snow's and Twilighsabers perspective.

Alright, finished a new part, but will most likely splitt it in half. There is just too much from Snow and this part is very dark in nature. I hope it will not be too much.

Well... I think I will look over it then and post it. Thats something that matters to Sonni the most, as she has that telepathic connection to Snow at the moment.

Hm... if there was some form of problem with my last post, please feel free to ask. I will try to correct that issue as fast as I can.

Gah! Darn it.. it seems my favorite dice rolling site is dead...invisible castle.. that's a real bummer! Anyone have any other dice roller sites they like to use... apparently the one I used does not do what I want it to do. But since the result was a 7... and you can always "Take 7" on a non-combat roll I just let it stand.

Rolz works fairly well. Very useful for making a roll public too.

Thx Razor.. I'll look into that...

I used Invisible Castle because it was so 'user-friendly' and simple {it required NO Registration to use any of it's functions}... keeping track of rolls and giving links to access that record to anyone. Gonna miss it...

So I'll try to figure out rolz.

Rolz does much the same thing. You shouldn't need an account, can make your own roll room and post your rolls publicly by embedding them. I did it early on in Outcast Quest here.

Will write a little part for the Loroi/Snow to continue the story a little.
Edit: finished it, will post it as soon as I had a chance to correct a few little misstakes.
