@ChibiSilverWings: We need to get that bar so high that astronauts will be getting drunk! Although if the bar gets too high then "height" will lose its meaning somewhat in the endless vacuum of space. Also the bartender would have trouble pouring drinks in zero gravity.
@D3c3nd4n7: I'm sure he'll wake up soon, chained to the ceiling of a dark cave... No wait, that's just his bedroom.
Though, why does he have hand shackles attached to the ceiling of his bedroom? O_O
@ChibiSilverWings: Oh, so Craig and Amical share a room? But there's only one bed... Ahh, I get it! I hope Craig doesn't mind an open relationship though, because Amical sure has been flirting with everyone else. :D
. . . it might be any or none of these. Remember, the Circle (Amical Et al) spoke of "going back there" to get more seedlings. The seedling's voice sounded a bit like the one Craig provided for Tyler in the ask videos. This may be one of Tyler's memories, or perhaps a "backup" we haven't seen yet. The lady is likely "Alecto"— the one who we saw storing and chasing people.
@MoroseMoros: Amical is in an open relationship with all the people and sentient non-people (this is World of Darkness after all, and there are lots of those) he can convince to join him in his decked out sex dungeon.
This is the part where you laugh and I go, "But really. That's canon."
@burningtyger: A lot of fun ideas for people to think about here! I can neither confirm nor deny them for now :) But I do like "Alecto" as a temporary name for our mystery lady. Keeps the Greek theme nicely!
@ChibiSilverWings: Yes, ever since that crazy madwoman showed up in the early stages of the game I needed something to call her, so I went for the name of one of the Erynyes(Furies). Alecto means "implacable or unceasing anger." Another point in favor of this being Tyler's memory, BTW, is the subject's being HUNG FROM THE CEILING. "Let's get 'em , Hangy!" But as you said, you can neither confirm nor deny.
I think the boy is Curio, because in one of the previous flash chapters you could see him being chained up while Tyler stabs the woman from the beginning. Just my guess though. It could be Billy too, or Ken. Who knows?XD
@Don Quixotes: It's tricky in this case, I didn't want slower readers to have to fully replay if they missed something, but I know auto fill text like this can be harder on people who read faster.
At the moment Craig's coding skills just learned how to do this auto typing text and having a button to scroll it faster or just post it in a block is a bit beyond us coding-wise at current.
I wanted this part to FEEL very different from the "normal" part of the story, not just change in perspective but the feel of the text and the flow. And I think we were able to achieve that, and if I had just had Craig do our usual arrow click through for text blocks, I don't think we would have been able to use music or capture this "differentness" as well.
Since this is a really new format for us, there's still a lot of tweeks to be made, and hopefully we can figure out something to make it a little bit easier for people who read faster. And hopefully, even if it was slow, you enjoyed some of the other parts. :) We'll keep working on making things better, it's just baby steps for now as we learn new techniques.
@D3c3nd4n7: It's Cypher.The woman is wearing the same cloths the woman from p.g. 4, prologue with Cypher's outline.
Also, on another note,there is this thing where you can click the speech bubble and the rest of the words will appear so fast & slow readers can keep up with the text at their own pace.
@ChibiSilverWings: Don't worry about it. Frankly the slower speed indeed contributed to the feel, and you need to do what works best for you right now. I expect we'll be hearing this "Song of Melancholy" again some time...
@ChibiSilverWings: Sure. Honestly I'm still getting the hang of this mike. Here they are
I find myself all alone, standing here in blackness, With nothing surrounding
me; I see no hope in sight. And it seems my heart sings a song of
melancholy, wondering, wondering where is the light? Where am I ?Where
is this place? Is there hope still for me?
@SilverDruid: Thanks so much! And oh please do! Tell us about it later, we'd love to hear!
We're hoping to do a livestream about new World of Darkness/Mage character making some time after we're done with wedding stuff and that might be helpful if you've not done anything in White Wolf systems before. Though honestly no experience in that is required for a morphE OC :)
