This phone call has been rather surprising in a number of respects. My respect for Billy has grown.

I was fooling around in the Subeta wardrobe today, and I remembered they came out with argyle vests a few months ago. So here's a Billy human avatar:

@shylarah: *loud screeching*

Wait, there's more! There's this one hair that always reminds me of Asia, except they don't have it in black. So I went and fixed it!

Then I stumbled across Amical's gun:

Hm, I was expecting him to link the group together - "I'm together with a bunch of guys. Some of them might call you." - because he's the one that's easiest to find.
Then their friends and relatives could get together and piece together as much information as possible from all of the calls.
But I guess the Fate magic nixed that.

@Elaborate: That would have been a great plan! I'm sure Billy wishes he could have told her the names of the other captives, but he's not really been able to tell her anything he wanted to XD Poor guy.

@Elaborate: As I recall he never learned anyone's real name, but it sounds like a good idea. At the very least he could name Asia who uses the name she was adopted under.

@Ethrenal: He didn't learn Curio's or Adrestia's but he does know Tyler too. :D

@ChibiSilverWings: Remarkable. I can actually hear the screeching over the internet. It physically pains me.

Now all we need is a way for fists to be internet-protocol compatible.

In other news, I find this insight into Billy's persona behind the celebrity chess player fascinating. I'm also looking forward to hearing from Ken after hearing so much about him.

PS. Are y'all anticipating the GMC version of the Awakening rules the way I am? There is a nice long list of anticipated changes I've been salivating over lately.

@Merchant of Pain: Please don't punch me haha then you really would be the merchant of pain!


PS: AH YES. We're gonna be buying that for sure! I'm excited about a bunch of the new Werewolf updates too! SO much excitement!

To be honest I wish they'd have been more direct about this being the new version of the game, though considering how badly I've seen the oWoD people react to nWoD stuff maybe it makes sense that they're wary to call something their "new system". But I wish they would cuz it's a pretty significant overhaul.

I welcome it personally, I really like the new range of Virtues and Vices (something I always felt needed more options) and a lot of other stuff is neat, though stuff like Beats we probably won't be using since we were always extremely roleplaying focused rather than combat or game mechanics focused. morphE probably reflects that, or I hope it does XD a lot of what we did was based on character and interaction so we don't really need encouragement to be more in character/roleplay more which seems to be the reason for the Beats system? Though I'm not sure, I've not explored it as fully as I'd like yet!

Mage is fun but I love a lot of the new stuff they're trying and the beauty of it all is that you're welcome to pick and choose what you like and what you don't. I won't spoil much about the future of the comic, but we'll be including some oWoD stuff in this comic. But it's all about picking and choosing to make the game fun and interesting for everyone.

Actually I paid for the fancy 20th Anniversary old Mage, just because I felt like I needed to show them some love. We missed out on getting GMC at Gencon because we hesitated and it was sold out by Sunday (you don't even want know how much Alexis was saddened by that). But we got it later and we bought Demon during its Kickstarter and Alexis is plotting up a Demon campaign for us as we speak, though I'm doubtful that we'll be talking about it TOO much publicly, and certainly not over here, since we try to stay on topic over here. But there will likely be lots of art of it on our tumblrs and DA pages XD

@Lunaroki: Mine too. He really does care about those close to him. (Not to mention being sexy as hell.) Frankly I think he should consider telling Amical about the show- it would be really bad if he lost his job, not only for himself but for Amical, who'd no longer have a famous person in his pocket. *twitch* Too bad Co-location is a Space spell,and not castable on others,; However, Amical might, if asked politely, weave destiny to Billy's advantage.

I hope Spectacle will be serving tea in the parlor; he could be a mage with a Branding, a Sleepwalker, or a Proximus— all of those are "mostly human," and all fit his name. Whether he's something to stare at or one who can only watch magic, not cast it, remains to be seen, but I hope he has glasses- it just seems right.
