    Done and I must say I already got ten theories what this game will be about and the feeling they are all wrong!

    Hello All.

    Looking forward to having my two, who have never paired up before, navigate through this mystery.

    No theories from me.

    Woke up. Looked at game thread on my smartphone.

    I thought that Battlestar Galactica server error pic with the trained monkeys message, was you being atmospheric!

    Called up Youtube to listen to this "All Along The Watchtower", and encountered "invalid response".

    Google, Reddit, back to the Boards to check Lawbreaker's post - Youtube IS down, worldwide, and that server error business is the result of an actual media link, not some picture that the GM worked up for atmosphere, but it really did tie in with the mystery of the game events!

    Had the same, but works now. Dunno if that was intentional, but if you hit the link and start reading the actual song comes exactly where it comes in the text. Crazy.

    But Lawbreaker already got us overreacting to any hint there is ... [face_laugh] I thought the same Sith. It must be some kind of hidden hint!

    And as promised ...

    FAQ


    How much freedom will the players have?

    There is a plot and the world is something that gives players certain limits. But I believe in the fun of writing and won't shout GodModder! everytime you create a minor NPC to interact with. Any NPC I create is off limits. Other player characters anyway. Combined posts are always allowed.

    Oh and if you wonder if your post is okay, send it via PM. I will gladly have a look.


    Is this game ongoing or end at some point?

    The plot has a beginning, middle part and an end. So yeah, if this game makes it so far ... we will see a conclusion. Depending on player decisions it might be possible or even make sense to continue the game afterwards. It will be a bit of a different game then, though.


    Do I have to solve the central mystery of the game?

    Nope, but I can tell you that much ... no character can possibly be unaffected by it.


    How many characters are allowed?

    As many as I feel we can handle.


    Will the future storyline open up for additional players later on?

    TBD if there is interest.


    Are you German?

    This came up a few times. Nope, I am Dutch. But I speak fluently German if you wanna discuss anything in your native language. My English might be a bit strange sometimes, but I hope that it won't irritate anybody too much.


    Is this the game announced by LordTroepfchen by the same name?

    No, I just used the title. LordTroepfchen has abandoned the idea and told me about it. There is one element I felt was perfect for my game and I will use it with his permission. My plot has nothing to do with his one though. This game was originally called "The strange case of Quentin Archer". I think new one is much better.


    Is this game based on anything that exists out there?

    It is my modernized take on a certain obscure novel. A free adaption so to say. No, I won't tell you which. But a bottle of 18 years Glen Dronach Single Malt Scotch for the first person who finds out which Novel it is! Promised!

    So, just an observation ... but if Quentin Archer was murdered, was he the first victim of Sidney?

    Possible. We may never know.

    So, I have noticed an error in my posts. I have far more material, fics and roleplaying, using the image of the Gravely character for one called Baille Harte, and I'm noticing that I have been writing her in my current post, and the last one. So if you see me referring to a "Baille", that is the reason.

    I was wondering if I missed something there or if this was another of Lawbreskers hidden plots. [face_laugh]

    Anyway, I strongly assume Archer was the true first victim. He was the beginning of what seems to be serial killer's attempt to keep the Tritec secret ... a secret. Which means we all might become targets if we get closer to the truth.

    Also I could not miss that there is a Head of SID in the future timeline, who is actually an Australian. And working on Tritec. He also is quite an ahole. Is that Sidney? Did he kill those people ten years ago and then joined the project?

    Had the same idea about "Jack". Whatever these guys are doing in Shanghai seems to have started ten years ago in L.A. and lead to the killings.

    I also wonder if Jack/Sidney is the guy getting drunk from the intro. Maybe the Jack we see in 2029 is the result of having to do something truly horrible in 2019.

    My bet on Tritec is we have some sort of AI project. Some sort of behavior analysis tool that probably is to edgy to be revealed to the public.

    As one of my characters stated in the game, I think we have two shooters. Probably only one involved in the conspiracy, but shooting point blank, and usually killing with the first shot, I don't see how the survivor got away from that.

    Don't tell me though, Lawbreaker.
