    That was a good session. Too bad Tom wasn’t in on it, but I’m glad Cody had the forethought to ask, “So why don’t we just blow up the reactor?” If I were playing, as soon as we got control of the orbital killsats, Legba would be slag.

    Cody hasn’t played a game with us in years.

    Cody wasn’t in this game; he don’t play no more. Drew took over Tom’s character.

    Caleb wouldn’t allow him to play a re-instatiated member of the Wu-Tang Clan in Know Evil.

    Oh, sorry. I meant Drew. Sometimes I have trouble keeping everybody straight. Some players have voices that sound similar to me. Shoulda checked the tags. 🙂 Anyway, still a good question. I think that if/when I get to run this scenario, I’ll make sure that nuking Legba is specifically prohibited in the Firewall briefing. I can see Firewall actually wanting Nine Lives to maintain their centralized headquarters, if for no other reason than to keep them easier to wipe out at a later date should it become necessary.

    Cody spawned, although I don’t know if that was directly related to his quitting. eugh, reproduction. from his Twitter I got the impression he got busy doing other kinds of nerd things. unfortunately I think his second Kickstarter just failed to meet funding =( can’t remember what it was called now to go check on it.

    Another excellent scenario from Caleb, can’t wait ’til my group gets around to playing it. I actually have an Ultimate character I plan on using, so he’ll “love” seeing these other Sentinels playing at being Ultimates.

    Also, yeah, lifepath generated characters can end up pretty weird. I have a completely random roll character that is a ~46-year-old Bengali man in his original Flat morph, despite having been a Gatecrasher, a Banker, and a Smart Animal Trainer. Oh, and did I mention that through some miracle he has 95 i-rep! Yeah, shit gets strange real quick.

    That random life path character sounds awesome. 95 irep in a flat that’s only in its 40’s? Dude would a firewall legend–like the Transhuman equivalent of the most interesting man in the world

    “Yeah, all you pansy-ass poser gatecrashers with your ‘cortical stacks’ and ‘implants’ and ‘backups’. It ain’t crashin’ if you don’t crash flat.”

  13. May 7, 2014 at 12:22 pm

    Hahaha! That’s great! He’s a pretty strange jumble of skills, and I kind of figure with that much i-rep he’d probably be a proxy or something. I’ll post his stats to the EP thread in forums later, for anybody interested.

    I loved TomDrew’s performance!

    The inclusion of Voodoo & soul/spirit terminology was pretty cool, and fitting, Caleb. I can’t believe David was the only one with a “high” Infosec- with only 50%.

    No “Mistakes were made” tag? 🙂
