1/20/08 08:20 am - [info]the_archivist - ghost in the machine

When: Day 6
Who: ?

Far below the great City of the Krell, the Thought Projector hummed, making power, storing power, maintaining itself, as it had done for millenia beyond counting, as it had done since the wise, and peaceful Krell had created it, and set it running. It did not think, had no sentience, not even as much as the limited Artificial Intelligence of the houses, the repair robots. Its only directives were to make power, and manifest thought - a sentience of its own would have been counter-productive. Would have interfered with the pure detection of sentient life - originally the Krell - and their wants, their directed desires.

It had only operated at full capacity for a little more than one full roation on the plaent's axis, before the Krell who had made it were abruptly, and violently no more. It was during that time that the Reclamation Machine had been, incompletely, created. Noble intentions - the hallmark of the mighty Krell - yet interrupted by a chaos inimaginable.

The Reclamation Machine was functioning now. Not fully. A bare, infintesimal fraction of its capacity had been completed in the millenium, by faithful Fabricators who did not have enough sentience to use the Thought Projector. All they could do was follow the plan, and the plan was incomplete. But they had done, and continued to do, what they could.

And, with the presence of sentient life returning to the planet, the Thought Machine was ready.

Of course, the sentience was very low on the Krell scale. Barely that of idiots, or children. It lacked the focus and discipline of the Krell. Weak minds... ironic that some of them were among the strongest in current existence within their own worlds. But the collective want of them had brought the Thought Machine into action, though only a flicker. The collective want of those few, weak minds, to communicate.

A flicker of the Thought Machine's unimginable capabilites stirred a ripple within itself. Just a ripple. Nothing more.

The great Machine's unexpected flaw was not activated by so small a ripple. Not the first one. Perhaps not the next. It would take more.

The Id still slept. For now.

I know we have 2 (or 3?) in progress scenes:

http://asylums.insanejournal.com/the_archive/2415.html - day 4 (Braska & Milan)
http://asylums.insanejournal.com/the_archive/3533.html - day 4 (Albel & Lavi)
http://asylums.insanejournal.com/the_archive/2977.html - day 6ish (Gerald & Orha)

As soon as reasonably possible, try and bring your character up to at least Day 5.

You don't need to abandon in progress scenes! but be aware of time movement. Thanks!

FYI Treize's arrival scene is also in progress off journal (for the moment) for about day 6/7 and still looking for someone to encounter the naked general ;D

AND we have a new character arriving soon, details to come.

Everybody wang chung! ;-D

12/24/07 01:14 pm - [info]albelnox - Exploratory Boys

When: Days 4-5
Who: Albel Nox, Lavi

Edited: Since everyone else is already ahead of us, we're bringing Lavi and Albel to day 5 so they can get the patch thingy, and then when we finish this scene we'll probably skip ahead again to try to meet up with other people XD

Let's go outside. Explore )

12/18/07 09:35 pm - [info]the_archivist - Attention! Day Five

The following event, small and quiet, happens on Day 5. When your character wakes up on Day five, there is a small, flat, triangle on the nearest surface to your dominant hand. It's about 3" across. Color is variable, but general a non-color, like gray.

If examined, one side will adhere to skin.

If adhered to skin, like a "patch" type drug, it has the property of allowing a character to understand other spoken languages.

Don't ask how it works, the ways of the Krell science are mysterious. But something has placed it there. Only it may take trial and error on someone's part to discover what it's for. ;-)

If lost or thrown away, it, or another one, will reappear in 2 days.

12/17/07 11:42 pm - [info]orha - Two Hens

Who: Orha Duren, Gerald Tarrant
Where: Outside the city
(When: TBD, probably around day 6-7ish)

12/31/07 12:42 pm - [info]the_archivist - Welcome Post

Hello, I am the Archivist! I'm here to present a multiverse-style RPG. I think the premise might be unique though it's entirely possible it might have been used by someone. To view the premise of this game, simply look at the the community info.

If you are interested in playing, submit a character application, format found on the same info page, to this post. All replies will be screened.

If you have a question, please reply to this post also. Your question and answer will probably be unscreened to benefit others. Character apps will remain screened however.

Thanks for your interest!

~the Archivist

UPDATE! WHEN APPLYING PLEASE NOTE: Your character dies to get here. He/She will not be bringing any object with them. Nothing comes with you that you wouldn't take into the Afterlife, with one exception: your body. Death wounds are healed when you wake up. But that missing limb you replaced with a cybernetic arm? Still gone, and no prosthesis. No swords, no guns. Special arrangements will be discussed for special situations on a case by case basis.

ALSO PLEASE NOTE: If the character you want to app dies in canon and comes back, please clear it with the mods before apping. If you have a good reason, we'll try and work something out. Try. No guarantees. Thnx!
