Know what? I am glad you all enjoyed the magical additions or whatever to the game but its not going to ever be what the lessons or the tourney are about every month. And no way are we going to be playing some weird version that crushes the pieces. What a waste?

For me anyway, its about more than just sitting there, its not something you can do while multitasking, not in any tourney setting, whatever you do on your own time is up to you but its not Chess. Chess in that setting, its focus, its determination, it's skill. Why the hell do you need magic to make that better. It's already better. Magic can't do everything. More to the point it shouldn't do everything

But look, If you want to crush the pieces, get someone magic to replicate them and hope it doesn't screw up. But you're not crushing any of the sets we have. There's not an endless supply.

Helpfully everyone regained their ages in time for the Tourney tomorrow. I could think of absolutely nothing more awful than being a kid again so, hope you're all recovered/not entirely mentally scarred See Vassy, empathy

...Which is a sentence I never thought I'd say. This place is still basically crazy.

Reasonably good sign ups though, and no I was six for the last few days excuses. It's not going to make you better or worse at this stage.

Chess club tomorrow and I'm happy to say most of you aren't terrible.

The beginners seem to be listening and interested so color me pleasently surprised.

Now if only I could get used to living in a damn mountain and hearing that there might be a dragon dropped into casual mountain conversation.

So, well done to all of you who sensibly hid their computers for the duration of the ridiculous truth telling.

Not that I noticed a difference. Bluntness is kind of a trait.

Anyway, I've had this idea to run a Chess tournement. For those of us who want something more cerebral than punching each other. Me and Vassy would adjudicate. Not participate obviously, that'd just defeat the purpose.

And we're looking at lessons, Beginner, intermediate and advanced. It focuses the mind, its stratagy, its tactics and it's been around in one form or another since the 6th century.

There'll be a sign up for both sooner or later, but, yeah. Sign up.

So, you avoided the hell out of me last few days.

Weird.

Do weeks like this happen often?

Freddie

I've been thinking. We both need something familiar to do.

Maybe we could set up a Chess Tournament? But, we'd be the adjudicators, rather than play. Because, I doubt there's anyone who could match me, let alone you.

This place really does take some getting used to, doesn't it? Even with everyone trying to keep things normal, with Thanksgiving and Christmas coming up. How do you ever get used to being here? To the strange things that keep happening?

[Filtered to Freddie]

Can we talk?

I'm still not sure how this could at all be possible.

Still, since I'm told that my ex is here. And I feel like I should apologise for whatever Freddie might have said or done without me here. Which is a habit I'd rather get out of.


Anyway, I should introduce myself. I'm Florence Vassy. It's nice to meet you all.

So seriously, post apocalyptic wasteland and we're dragged here in pods.

I guess simple question first, when did the Commies push the big red button?

Testing?

This is so stupid. What am I even supposed to say? Should have given me a script, Bell

I'm supposed to be doing a test to see who can actually see this to check and see if the network is up and running. I guess if you can see this, reply back with your name and if you're having any kind of issues? I can pass them along to whoever.
