    Yeah I know. There are hundred smarter things to do. But I wanted to stay in character. LEGO is not a killer (yet?). He is a peaceful man at heart who would at least try to talk to the man he considers his arch-enemy. Even if it would have been smarter to force him to reveal Simmons and then wipe everybody out who knows about us ... it wouldn't be him.

    Then again they had no clue who I was. Smartest thing would have been to throw away Elena's phone and let Kyle die. They might never have found me. Also not Lego. But I hugely enjoyed the scene with the President so far. Was kinda hard to play him based solely on his info though. I know so much more than poor Sebastian.

    Heheh.. Very glad you didnt kill him.

    Might have started the prophecy, without you even knowing it... lol. Since none of US know why they are so freaked out....

    But, LEGO's appearance might make him think. As LEGO had the PERFECT opportunity to kill him, but didnt. That might speak volumes. Or not. Hard to predict reactions. Either way, should be fun!!!!

    Oh man...whew! [face_relieved]

    I have to admit, you had me scared there for a moment...LOL!

    It's definitely not going to get any easier. You certainly made an impression...I just need to decide how I want to tackle it (initial reaction included)! :p And funny you should mention Simmons. If that last plea didn't work, I was considering revealing him in a last-ditch effort.

    Also, get well soon, LordT! [:D]

    Oh God, that was tense. I thought we have another dead president there! Great writing both of you. Also I wonder what the US Gov can do? Basically LEGO is blackmailing them into submission. I doubt they will find this acceptable.

    Thank you, TSG! :)

    And nope, that won't go over well at all. This is going to be so interesting moving forward. ;)

    That was one hell of a face-to-face. Really had me chew my finger nails. For a second I thought Lego will do it! This made the thing a lot more personal, I'd say.

    Thanks everybody for the good wishes. A bit better now (probably the meds). So hope I am over the fever. But if my posts have a fever-dream quality ... that is not my prose skills, but just my natural state I am in.

    And I have just written the final post of the game! Still a long way to go, but it forced itself into my mind while I was having my fever and I just wrote it on my iPhone.

    Kyle: "Holy CRAP!!!"

    I can see why the guy is paranoid. Bouncing around out of control, into different 'timelines'. And to know it happens only when yourself dies in another timeline. That would make anyone go insane....wow.

    Hmm...and if I read that right, it also appears that our friend, Professor Cale, is immune to LEGO's abilities...

    Very curious. I wonder what he's up to... [face_thinking]

    Thanks for clearing that up! [face_peace]

    I guess that's what happens when I'm only running on 4 hours of sleep...

    Or the fever induced updates of LordT got you confused. Get some sleep!

    Oh man...lots of juicy tidbits in there!

    Very well done – excellent combo! :D

    Thanks. LordT set up a wonderful scene there. Really.

    Yes, very interesting indeed. LordT surprised me with Cale. He gives Simmons a run for his money as the coolest NPC (and he has all the elements to become a villain if you ask me). A lot of thrilling insight.

    I guess we slowly get the price for our incredible powers. The excessive use of them will have irreversible consequences. Problem is we are on a collision course with the Hunters now. Great Expectations, indeed.

    And TSG's Maria scares the hell out of me. She basically infiltrated us. Quite an advantage.

    Can I just say this is becoming hard to watch, I know what my character doesn't and have had to scrap a few posts after going back over the last few pages to realize he doesn't know anything. He doesn't know what his saving voice looks like and so cannot realize something is wrong beyond the tone of voice changing on the phone. He thinks the pale guy in a hoodie is Simmons for crying out loud when I want to scream "It's not Sebastian! It's the bad guy version of another person you don't know exists! AHH!"

    *Calmly sips a drink of water* Great posts everyone, this is such a thrilling game with so many different sides right now that it is amazing.

    @Mitth-Fisto, actually you wrote Sebastian, when I believe you meant Simmons, right?

    To be honest I totally underestimated the possibility that you guy read each other's post. My SotS experience was, that only 5% of players did that and the others enjoy their characters journey ... with us most of you follow the overall plot. So I had to adjust to this a bit. Also I believe it is always the best way to enjoy a game. I always did that myself.

    But I expect to have everyone at some level of knowledge by the end of chapter 2. BTW my great appreciation to the effort all of you take to not godmod. This game survives only because all of you are so good at staying in character.

    Update in 24 hours.

    Updated already ... the final "power" is revealed.





    I got a few FAQ's which have come up lately. So I wanted to share the questions and answers with all of you ... to keep everybody on the same level.

    How long is this game to last?

    As you all might have realized we follow a certain string of events that I expect to come to a conclusion at some point, if enough players stay on board to end this game. I divide the game into three acts, of which we are in the second now.


    Is this game set in the SotS universe?

    No, it isn't. I hoped to do a kind of spiritual successor by providing a similiar fast-paced mystery thriller as Fin did back then. But this is not connected.

    I personally felt there was nothing to add to SotS after it's conclusion.


    Will we take new players at some point?

    Nobody has signaled me to be interested in this and I guess this would be a game hard to join as the plot is pretty advanced at this point. But I am not saying it is impossible.


    Will there be a sequel?

    Haha, what do I know. I haven't planned one. This is not part of a trilogy or anything. But depending how it ends (and this more up to you guys then you might know) the possibility exists. Never say never. I advise to see this as a contained game though.

    I wanted to comment on this sooner, but it's just been a crazy few days. [face_tired]

    First of all, thank you for the insight, LordT! That was very helpful, and let me say that I appreciate all that you do! I can't emphasize enough how much I enjoy this game and everything you put together here. The plot is stellar so far, and I love that extra level of realism everyone is striving for. At this point, I think I would be doing myself a disservice if I didn't go through and read all of the amazing posts and follow all of the characters. It's been one heck of a ride so far! ;)

    Seriously loving Cale as well. But yeah, I trust him about as far as I can throw him! :p I agree that I can see him becoming one of the villains. He has all the right tendencies, and I can totally see him causing trouble on some level going forward.


    And on a final note, I wanted to mention that I have a deadline coming up tomorrow, so I probably won't have the free time to start my post until Thursday. Maybe earlier if I get lucky and plow through these next few drawings without an issue? We'll see...I don't want to get ahead of myself. :p

    Glad you enjoy it and thanks!

    I think it was Fin who once said, you need three things for a great game:

    Great players, great players and great players.

    I have those!

    Actually it is easy to GM you guys and girls. I find great inspiration in your characters and in every post you guys do!

    :oops: Yeah, I meant to write Simmons because that is what my guy thinks, whilst I know it is Sebastian. Blargh. Sorry about that.
