Hey, Bryn!

[Photo of a door she'll find very familiar]

We got a door to your place again, for a month. It opens up into your office, again, and it's winter in 2022 out there. Enjoy!

You said there were houses and parks somewhere else? How do we get there?


You said you could build a house. Does anyone know how to build boats?

I understand more about this station now and it's amazing how well it's thriving given the circumstances. There are some things I think I can help with. It would be easier if I had some assistance, but I know only a couple of you are spacers and none of you chose to be here, so it doesn't matter if I end up doing it myself. Take it as a spacer needing to feel comfortable on a station this big. As far as I can tell you have no station captain, for good reasons, but you do have an administrative department?

First problem thing is orientation. My plan, starting with your third wheel, is to number the levels and add directional markings and symbols at all major junctions. I won't paint over the markings in the other languages or anyone's strange art, but life is going to be easier here if we can find our way around outside of familiar areas. As this is going to be a big project, especially if I'm working alone, I may as well throw in a station survey. Excepting private quarters, obviously, and if you have a business you don't want to appear on the public listing, tell me. Again, not trying to make anyone's life difficult.

Second, how many of you can fly a ship? I don't mean L-space astrogation or fancy flying, I mean if there were a catastrophic system failure, how many of you could run an evacuation? You need a lot more than you think on a station this size, because relying on only a few people who can fly is going to get you into trouble if you have initial casualties. Nobody likes thinking about it, but you have to prepare for the worst out here, and I'd like to teach people the basics if they're willing. The more the better. It doesn't matter if you're completely unfamiliar with space shuttles - even if you're from Earth sometime before the Breakaway War and you've never been aboard one before - but you do need the ability to think clearly under pressure.

Third, I've heard that you have a very well-run infirmary, but what emergency provision do you have on the other wheels? This is a big station and you don't want to be miles off from help. At the very least you need emergency kits with wound patches and portable stasis generators and all that at regular intervals, signposted so that everyone here knows exactly where to go if they need it. Can the medical staff tell me if there's something like that already in place? If there is, I can put in the directional markings, and if not, we can work on it.

This is more of a personal question but have you established any - station protocol sounds much too formal, but what if you read the listings and you see a name you recognise well, but they don't know who you are? Is it too much to try to get in contact?

If that offer of a tour is still open, I'm free now!

[Finn Collins]

Colonel Crawley told me that you were the person to talk to about repairing long range transmitters? It's not going to be as useful to me as I first thought, but I'd still like to try to help, if I can.

This is Lieutenant Tayrey of the Tradelines, with the Prosperity. What is your station designation?

I'm going to need to patch across station comms, or take out a Sibril line if we're too far out. The Prosperity will settle the account if it hasn't disappeared betweenspace because I apparently

It's urgent. I'm the astrogator. The ship could be lost. Wake your first-shift captain if you have to.

If you have children, what are their names?

If you don't have children, what would you name them if you did?

You can say why if you want, but you don't have to. I'm curious what people do in other places.

Hi, I'm Kat. Resident animal wrangler. I hear words of shooting and I cannot help but feel a little concerned.

Could someone who was involved in the incident explain what happened? I hope I'm sure this will put all of us at ease. Thank you.


It has come to my attention, that two people were shot... Because we are afraid of each other. Even if that wasn't the reason, I feel it is long past time for a "town-hall" meeting. It has been years, enough years that I don't think, besides a handful, that any of you attended the last one we had.

I would like to see every single one of you in attendance, young and old, men, women, children, and in between. There is a large amphitheater classroom in the University that will seat everyone, and then some, comfortably.

We do not need to be afraid of each other here, because I don't doubt there will come a time that we well need each other, again. I'm not being dramatic, but I'm talking life and death need, not just because one or the other has a useful skill that would make life easier.

So please, help me end this, and bring us all together again.

Edit: There will be drinks and snacks.

[N.B. Backdated to several hours after the conclusion of this. Unless otherwise marked, all replies are visible to all of them, not just Katarin - that way the guys can interact with each other too if we want.]

Please tell me that all is well!

It is not so bad as I thought. I cannot write, I am speaking to my phone now, but I will not lose my arm, and by Asharai I will heal and not fall to the wound fever.

You must visit me, all of you, even if you avoid one another in your feuding. The pain - the pain is bad, but I must bear it, because I have seen too many half-drowned in taishel-syrup and never the same in the mind after their bodies healed. The medics here are too quick to press for these things! I am not so damaged to be left to that!

Tell me you are reading this and you are not hurt, and nothing worse came of this. You are all blameless to me. It happened because it was seen to happen, and we are all powerless before the magic that underpins the world.

The games room is back up and running [at location].

For those who are newer, the game room is exactly as it sounds. Mostly used for card games and the like, but there is just about every board game you can think of (and many you've probably never heard of) there.

Play for fun, play for money, play a drinking game, it's entirely up to you.

There are a small selection of drinks and cigars available, that I'll try to keep stocked. I don't keep anything stronger than beer on premises because I don't trust myself so feel free to bring your own booze.

I'll be there this evening, if anyone wants an introduction or a game of your choice.

Happy gaming.

Judging by the date, that was not just some vivid nightmare, and I’ve been AWOL.

I won’t even ask what I’ve missed. I need a drink

Filtered away from Sophia

Good evening all,

As you will know, it is Sophia's 21st birthday on May 11th.

She's not planning on having a big party or anything, so I have invited her to meet me at Bryn's club for a drink on the evening of her birthday. She has fortunately humoured me, so you know, of course I am hoping that as many of you will join me as possible in throwing her a surprise party.

I will do what I can, but if anyone can help with catering, music, decorating and so on, it will be gratefully received.

Of course, do not breathe a word of this to Sophia.

Thank you.


It's that time again! And I'm not late! These are the birthdays for this month!

Lady Frigga's birthday is the 1st.

Finn Collins' is the 2nd!

My Birthday Buddy John Constantine's is the 10th!


Mr. Darcy's birthday is the 17th!

And Hrodolf's birthday is on the 22nd!

And for those who don't know I'm Sophia, if I've missed your birthday, or it hasn't come yet, let me know!

Don't ask me how I found out, it's a rather humiliating experience... But if anyone has a black card from my world, they work through the door. But I don't have away to make more, in my world it I had people who did that sort of thing for me. You can get cash the pin numbers are usually the last four digits of the card.

So is anyone else getting two spins of this particular wheel? Other than the people I already know about, I mean.

Feb. 20th, 2019


Hello there. My name is Ben, and I would like to thank everyone who assisted with my arrival the other day.

Could someone please explain why this place feels so familiar to me? Thank you.

hi can i keep the splint off my wrist now?

[OoC: This should have been a text message for Dr Cuddy but Dan's quite muddled right now, so everyone gets it on the network instead oops]

I have decided that the best time for a grand party will be New Years eve. There will be music, food, and plenty to drink.

And I will be wounded deeply if any of you miss it. It will be a time to celebrate the friends we have made, the good fortune we have had, and bid those no longer with us farewell. And there will be a large bonfire with fresh timber from the time of my human life to wish them so.
