Tinyplots Run By Moriar
The Mayor's Lost His Head!
Someone's infiltrated the Patashu Industries base, and made off with the boss-dragon's head. The top gnolls report that the brigands almost knew what they were doing, and scrambled up the backup spools and watchdog circuits. It'll be months before Patashu can be recompiled from the latest backups, and the election is right around the corner! Volunteers, hark! Arrangements have been made for a fast ship, and a foretold heading. We're pretty sure that we can catch up, but we need bodies to help. Violence is possible. OOC Notes: It's intended to be a 'Saturday morning cartoon' level of seriousness, so slapstick violence in the manner of the old GI Joe cartoon. Serious injury won't be possible, the most dire consequence will be a character getting taken out of action for a scene. (This includes if you use what should be lethal weapons, though PI will be providing laser rifles and sidearms to any who will take them.) Bring rope to tie up pirates! Please contact Moriar with any questions. Time: 6:30pm Server Time, Wednesday 10FEB21 Location: Luge N10 W2, Stage OOC Note: Open to anyone and everyone, please page #mail Moriar with any questions.
My Traps are for Naught!
The ghostly gryphon Ranarp, being a voracious consumer of virtual reality novels, has been gifted an anthology of short stories. However, she's come upon one that she can't seem to bring to resolution. In the role of a coyote off in a remote stretch of roadway in the sprawling desert, the purple and blue bird keeps eluding her grasp. She's put out a call for volunteers to help her complete this chapter of the virtual reality series, having run out of ideas herself. OOC Note: This is intended to be a Toon RP. Have a toon form is not required, but the physics inside the VR will be toon physics. Being Moriar's first attempt at running a toon rp, please excuse the lack of experience with this genre. Please contact Moriar with any questions. Time: 6:30pm Server Time, Wednesday 17FEB21 Location: Luge N10 W2, Stage
It's scary to go alone! (Open RP)
The time has come, and the extraplanar vendors of the beverages Well of Souls: The Black Drink, Glitterings Dreams Half Recalled, and Unfocused Echo have invited Patashu to the regional office to discuss further arrangements. At the appointed time, the entry to their realm will be presented, and negotiations to follow. The kobolds of the Patashu Industries facility have, knowing Patashu to have as much wisdom as courage, has invited any volunteers along to accompany their bossdragon to the quest. The notice of invitation reminded all who attend to bring writing instruments to the preference of the bearer. Time: Wednesday, 03MAR21, 6:30pm Server Time Location: Luge N10 W2, Stage
Interloping Invader of Draconic Mystery, Evading Detection! (Open RP)
On careful audit of the Patashu Industries logs, the kobolds have realized that there are occasional moments when the quantity of dragons are in excess of the known numbers of dragons. Who is this mysterious intruder into Patashu's territory who seems nigh invisible with stealth? They've evaded detection and the search of the kobolds thus far, who've now put out calls for volunteers to help track down this potential threat. Location: Wednesday, 10MAR21 Time: 6:30pm, Server Time OOC Notes: This is meant to be a light hearted mystery of following clues to the culprit. All are welcome, regardless of genre. Moriar seeks to continue practice at the skill of running tinyplots.
So, About That Time She Died...
Volunteers requested for greeting some unwelcomed guests! The Patashu Industries kobolds, ever busy behind the scenes and on matters left unreported, have failed in their most recent attempt to divert away the travel of the Derivationalist Paladins who've been trying to reach the ghostly hologram of a gryphon, Ranarp. The kobolds fear that the paladins, being worshipers of Death, are coming to take the gryphon into the next realm. To forestall this, they've been pulling various shenanigans to keep the paladins from stepping foot on Quodlibet; but this time it seems unavoidable. Volunteers are requested to a remote and nigh abandoned starport to greet and repel these guests, before they can complete their business with Ranarp. Relevant Background Information on Ranarp: Ranarp, the holographic gryphon, is known to have been aboard a patrolling warship called the Tennyson when it was sunk. She arrived back home to Patashu Industries, where she hung out in virtual space for about thirty years and was presumed dead by the fleet that she was an officer of. More recently, she's emerged into the meatspace and re-activated her commission. She doesn't quite remember what happened on the last hours of the Tennyson. Background Information on Derivationalism: What is Derivationalism? It's a fictional religion named after Moriar looked to a Calculus textbook for a name that sounded philosophical and isn't already taken. The basic belief is that Death is an entity with plans for everyone, and it's best for these plans to be realized. For lay people, this means to eschew immortality. (In Ranarp's case, this is why backup copies of her program are not kept; if you destroy the computer she is running on, you have destroyed her for good.) The paladins of this religion spend most of their time wandering around finding organics stuck in statis pods and AI stuck in data spools, regarding such states as an undesirable limbo state. On finding such people who's path towards Death has been forestalled, they wake them up and bring them back to civilization that they may live out however many days Death has accounted for them. Most people do not know this, IC. Encounters with the paladins are rare; the were mentioned as having tried to steal Flundra while she was in shipping. (This having been a time when she was an offline, but repairable AI.) Date: 17MAR21 Time: 6:30pm, Server Time Place: Luge N10 W2, Stage All are welcome! I have attempted to summarize the context leading into this story above; please feel free to contact Moriar with any further questions.
All are invited to an evening of refreshments, entertainments, and a short presentation. No charge! Bring your checkbook.
