Alright, folks, finally an update! Between work and the hectic holiday season, this was a long time coming. Thanks for being patient!
Additionally, part of the delay was due to my frustration over the fact that we had yet another extremely close round of voting, with excellent replies from all! It saddens me a bit to have to discard so much great input based on a narrow majority and I briefly flirted with various kinds of compromises, but decided to adhere to the rules.
First up is a retroactive addition to the last scene. Chewie
had asked a question about whether or not the tunnels could be used to go to different levels and I simply forgot to include it in the update.
So let's just pretend that these first few pics "already happened" and then we'll skip ahead to the "present."
Now on with the update!
As I said, we had another extremely close round of voting, but the "diplomatic" crowd won out over the "aggressive" group by a margin of one vote!
Here's a breakdown of the voting:Aggressive
No Mercy JoeCautious
Clone Commander Gree
Now, for the next update, we're going to do things a little differently. Especially in light of the recent dead heat voting, I'd like to try to give everyone a chance to directly participate if they want to.
So this next chapter will be more interactive, kind of like the bar sequence. Anyone who wants to can post a specific piece of dialogue or a question. The decisions here are not what to do or where to go, but what to say.
And rather than having everyone just vote for the kinds
of things to say, I'd love to give everyone a chance to just jump in and say them.
Here's the good news: I took a SLEW of extra photos during my last session, so I will be able to post individual "mini updates" at a rapidly accelerated pace. So we can have as much "back and forth" as you'd like.
So Player A can say something, and I can post a quick response. Player B then can jump in...and so on.
Now, if people have fundamental disagreements about other people's suggestions, then feel free to discuss them and try to come to a compromise.
Maybe, for example, one person will want to tell the other characters the whole truth, while others might opt for a clever lie. Some compromises will probably be necessary.
(See the recent conversation between Chewie and Findswoman regarding staying in touch with Crate for a stellar example of inter-player communication and cooperation)
Now, this is all experimental and free form, so we'll see how it goes. The only real rules here are be respectful and have fun!
So on with the show!
