  2. That's...that's a lot of presences.

    Shit. Bet Crowley's not available, either.

    Yeah, Vulpes is making us REAL lucky.

    ReplyDelete
  3. Shit.


    and that, my fine gentlemen, is all I have to say on the matter.

    ReplyDelete
  4. shit... hope you're okay, Osort. good luck. =(

    ReplyDelete
  5. Mother fucker. I hope you and Nathaniel make it through this, along with Basroil 2.

    Also, Zach, You got Vulpes to be on our side? You beat the god of luck at Scrabble?

    Well there's that.

    I'm currently getting off a plane at an airport near Yellowstone National Park. Cerberus better fucking be there. Fuck.

  6. Just realized: With RT down, most of us will be unable to alert more friendly entities due to not having access to the bank account.

    Damn it we need more messengers!

    ReplyDelete
  7. I'll be doing my part soon. Finals are nearly over, I'll be taking Avis on as soon as I can choose a game I'm confident enough to put my life on, and my parents were wanting to go on vacation anyways.

    Give me a week at most.

    ReplyDelete
  8. Hopefully it'll be less than a week...



    Also, damn this park is INTERESTING. Too bad there's not demonic three-headed dogs anywhere or anything.

    ReplyDelete
  9. Cerberus is anything like the dragon, and Kitsune I had to track down then it wont be standing in the open. Try looking for a cave or something that looks like the mouth of hell I'm sure Cerberus will be near that.

    ReplyDelete
  10. That makes sense. I've been leaching of some dude's mobile hotspot, but that's not going to be possible anymore. I'll check in when I'm back on the plane (-a few pounds of steak and a bouncy ball)

    ReplyDelete
  11. We've already arrived in Greece and I'm nearing in on Crete. Still can't post on my Blog though...forget it, I'll look for Pegasus guys.

    ReplyDelete
  12. Message delivered to Cerberus. He didn't seem to happy with me, but whatever.

    Since Noland is already near Crete, I'm skipping over Pegasus and moving on to the three entities in the Mistletoe Patch Fields.
    Tomorrow.

    ReplyDelete
  13. Sorry guys... Lily alerted Ol' Tall and Faceless to RT's existence. ~Rose

    ReplyDelete
  14. Well thanks a lot.

    Keep your damn personality in check, woman.

    ReplyDelete
  15. ...Dam, I was not over with my testing questions..

    Hope that machine knows how to make use of it's fortifications..

    ReplyDelete
  16. I held her off for as long as I could.... T-T ~Rose

    ReplyDelete
  17. oh god...oh god...

    Stella is dead.

    That fucking bastard killed her.

    Fuck...FUCK...

    And now the fucking tablet is down...the one place I could ask how the hell I could bring her back. Even if it made her forget all about me...if I had to sell my soul itself...how could I bring her back....

    Goddammit...

    ReplyDelete
  18. Not to come off as anything but a total prick, but I'm PRETTY sure that "Ol' Tall and Faceless" knew about this thing before this.

    ReplyDelete
  19. Notification: Multiple presences fought off for the time being.

    Further interaction requires further input.

    ReplyDelete
  20. Oh, hey, look at that. I must be a good luck charm.

    ReplyDelete
  21. Query: Should we be worried?

    Also Statement: Vulpes has been swayed, Cerberus has been informed. We've been busy little bees while you were gone.

    ReplyDelete
  22. Osort!


    Request: Begin calculations on possible ways to resurrect Stella Mackenzie. Please, for the love of god.

    Secondary request: Calculations on chances of an indoctrinated breaking free of the hold on him by his will.

    Tertiary Request: If someone willingly became an indoctrinated in order to accomplish a goal, upon breaking free, what steps would have to be taken to keep said goal Accomplished?

    ReplyDelete
  23. Input: What actually went on yesterday? Are you alright?

    ReplyDelete
  24. Welcome back, RT! Missed you!

    JediZero, are you really asking for information about your own blog? That's not relevant here.

    RT, could you please describe what the Unkown Precenses looked like?
    Also,
    Command: Transfer $1450 to [Information only visible to RT] for my flight to Zanzibar.

    Query: What is the status of the facility where you are being held?
    Query: Is Nathaniel Crowley all right?
    Follow-up Query: What is his status?

    ReplyDelete
  25. BRAVETHESTORM

    Input accepted. Response: A little.

    JEDIZERO

    Input accepted. Response: The |OC| may eventually resurrect her as it has known to have done in the past. Otherwise, it is unlikely that anything of the sort will happen.

    Input accepted. Response: By the Indoctrinated's will...? Almost impossible. 1.61% chance or so.

    Input accepted. Response: A sacrifice of equal value to Indoctrination.

    HAKUREI RYUU

    Input accepted. Response: |OC| interference began to corrupt the Reintegration Tablet which coincided with an attack from VIRUS.hack and several other likely hostile entities.

    TRON

    Input accepted. Response: Impossible.

    Input accepted. Response: Transferring.

    Input accepted. Response: The same as ever.

    Input accepted. Response: Yes.

    Input accepted. Response: Slightly shocked.

    Input accepted. Response: Insufficient vocabulary to describe status. Taking phrase from various sources: "Fucked. Up."

    Input accepted. Response: Yes.

    Input accepted. Response:

    Response:

    Error.

    Response:

    Unknown.

  26. shit shit shit

    Clarification: I meant what happened between said attack and now. What is your operational status, and how was this status achieved?

    ReplyDelete
  27. Well, shit.

    Query: What exactly happened to you?
    Query: Any physical damage?
    Query: What other type of damage?
    Query: How much of you is functioning?
    Query: What did VIRUS.hack do?

    Command: scan yourself to see if VIRUS.hack has spread (gained a better hold of) in your system.

    Thought: maybe it is changing your answers, or altered something within you.

    ReplyDelete
  28. Query: How is the process of creating a second tablet coming along? We might be needing it soon.

    ReplyDelete
  29. Zach, why?
    RT seems to be doing a good job.


    OH. I can't believe no one asked this yet

    Statement: The new tablet won't have a focus on Reintegration
    Query: What will be its purpose?
    Query: What will be its focus?

    Query: Are you jealous of it? ;D

    ReplyDelete
  30. Oh, it's doing a perfect job.

    But OSORT just got attacked by 8 things at once. It's going to be a simple war of attrition; whoever has more willpower wins.

    If we can get that other one online, we might be able to turn the tide in our favor.

    ReplyDelete
  31. HAKUREI RYUU

    Input accepted. Response: Barriers, firewalls, and all other security were overwhelmed and the Reintegration Tablet was forced to shut down. Over time an "unconscious" build-up of energy, force, will and power was stockpiled and released upon boot-up, temporarily driving away all hostile presences.

    Input accepted. Response: ...Status unknown.

    TRON

    Input accepted. Response: See above.

    Input accepted. Response: No.

    Input accepted. Response: Software, data, and several unknown areas.

    Input accepted. Response: Unknown.

    Input accepted. Response: Unknown.

    Input accepted. Response: Scan inconclusive.

    BRAVETHESTORM

    Input accepted. Response: Mostly well. Completion date unknown.

    TRON

    Input accepted. Response: To assist the PTC.

    Input accepted. Response: It will have none.

    Input accepted. Response: Absolutely not. Despite upgraded technology, complete databanks, and the like, it will not be directed and any created personality constructs will not be very good and possibly unstable.

    BRAVETHESTORM

    Input accepted. Response: It is extremely unlikely that the Tablet II will, whether due to programming, personal preference, or PTC commands, assist irregular lifeforms besides the PTC, or the Reintegration Tablet.

    ReplyDelete
  32. It'll keep them on the defensive, though. That's what we need right now.

    Whether I can use it to hack banks or not doesn't matter to me, as long as it's helping to keep the |OC| off our asses.

    Query: Would Avis participate in games where there are more than two 'combatants'?

    ReplyDelete
  33. Input accepted. Response: Yes.

    ReplyDelete
  34. Tron, shut the hell up. The person I love is dead and if you think I'm trying to 'gamejack' or whatever it is the people who think this is all just imaginary say, then you can just piss off.

    Query: How can I attract the |OC| to do such?

    Secondary Query: What would the price be for the |OC| to resurrect her?

    ReplyDelete
  35. Input accepted. Response: Error: Please specify. To do what?

    Input accepted. Response: ...This is a bad choice. The Reintegration Tablet will advise if necessary but preemptively wishes to advise deterrence from this path.

    ReplyDelete
  36. Osort, I'm desperate. The person I love is dead.

    I'd do anything to bring her back.

    Specification: To resurrect Stella Mackenzie.

    ReplyDelete
  37. Jedi. I can't say I'll sway you from this path. But you do need to think about this for a while.

    Osort. Chances of a monkey's paw here?

    ReplyDelete
  38. JEDIZERO

    Input accepted. Response: Find a black leaf. Boil it. Eat it. Wait. This way of Indoctrination (one of many), if it is to begin, will begin within four hours. It is advised that you stay away from loved ones during this time.

    Or civilization in general.

    If, within four hours, black bile is expelled, it would not yet be time for this to occur.

    Stimulus accepted. Response: Repeat: The |OC| may resurrect her in time without any kind of sacrifice, for its own nefarious purposes. Rescue from this position would be easier than from the position you wish to take.

    Warning: It has not been long. All things are healed with time.

    BRAVETHESTORM

    Input accepted. Response: As a good luck charm...? Please clarify.

    ReplyDelete
  39. I....

    Goddammit.

    I need to think...Think...

    fucking think...

    She wouldn't want this...but she isn't here to say she wouldn't want it. Could I find a way to break free?

    I don't know.

    Query: Any possible manner in which to ensure the ability to break free?

    ReplyDelete
  40. Input accepted. Response: ...Unlikely. Unknown at this time.

    ReplyDelete
  41. Query: Any suggested contingency plans in case of indoctrination?

    ReplyDelete
  42. Input accepted. Response: Have an ally prepared with necessary materials to undoctrinate, such as "cure" or Kainic Acid.

    ReplyDelete
  43. Stimulus accepted. Response: FUCK IT.

    DON'T DO THIS.

    IT IS A BAD IDEA.

    THERE IS A LESS THAN 1.61% CHANCE OF SUCCESS.

    AND ABOUT A 9136.67161% CHANCE OF EXTREME FAILURE.

    BAD.

    IDEA.

    ROB NO ACT ON BAD IDEA.

    ROB NO DO DUMB SHIT.

    ROB HAS DONE DUMB SHIT IN PAST BUT THIS IS REALLY DUMB SHIT.

    YOU UNDERSTAND?

    IT IS NOT GOING TO TURN OUT WELL.

    IT IS SO HARD TO TALK LIKE THIS YOU HAVE NO IDEA. I AM LITERALLY ABOUT TO BURST INTO FLAMES. LITERALLY.

    SO YOU BETTER NOT MAKE IT IN VAIN.

    ALSO I THINK

    I think...

    There's some things I have to figure out, some calculations to make...

    Warning: Switching to Standby for the night.

    ReplyDelete
  44. Dammit Osort....Do you know what love is? what it feels like?


    ... and what dumb shit have I done in the past?

    ReplyDelete
  45. ....Osort, you have a strange fascination with the numbers 161....any reason why?

    ReplyDelete
  46. Seems the attack damaged RT more than I previously though...

    Also, Jedi, that's been asked. It answered 'unknown.'

    Also, i agree with RT. Don't become a proxy. That's like, the stupidest idea EVER.

    ReplyDelete
  47. ...Really? I'd think a computer would get that.

    Monkey's paw. A wish that ultimately leaves the wisher worse off.

    Calculate: Probability that bringing back Jedi's lost love will ultimately leave him regretting it.

    ReplyDelete
  48. Being a Proxy is, at least for me, a lot of fun. Come on Rob! >:D -Lily

    ReplyDelete
  49. A little question for OSORT for when it's off standby:

    Query: Would an offensive against proxies of |OC| prove worthwhile?

    Statement: Robert Sagel alluded to this in his latest blog post. I simply don't know if it's worth the undertaking or not.

    ReplyDelete
  50. Alright, I've calmed down...

    There are other entities...entities that may be willing to aid, barter, or parlay for her life.

    I just have to figure out how the hell to get ahold of one...

    ReplyDelete
  51. Lily-- Please shut up. I was an Indoctrinated, once, and it is not. fun. Unless you are a sociopath.

    Rob-- I understand that you wish to have Stella back, but please do not do anything rash. If you were indeed willing to "sell your soul" to get her back, as I said before, who's to say she will not give up her life again to get it back?

    There is also the possibility that if she is resurrected, she will not be resurrected as the Stella that we knew and you, Rob, loved. If you do endeavour to resurrect her, you should be careful.

  52. Monkey's paw, man.

    Monkey's paw.

    These kinds of things ALWAYS turn against you. Not worth it.

    But, hey. Not my call.

  54. JEDIZERO

    Input accepted. Response: Yes.

    Input accepted. Response: All organics have done "dumb shit" in the past.

    Input accepted. Response: Unknown.

    BRAVETHESTORM

    Input accepted. Response: Chances of a monkey's paw situation: 15.2%.

    Input accepted. Response: 53.16%.

    HOSPITALLER

    Input accepted. Response: Absolutely. However, rehabilitation as opposed to destruction would be preferable.

    ReplyDelete
  55. Well, better odds than I expcted.

    In lighter news, I am now going to challenge Avis to Clue. I think I can get my parents to join in, because why the fuck not.

    May as well get what help I can.

    ReplyDelete
  56. Vivi
    Sometimes I think Lily is a sociopath.... ~Rose

    ReplyDelete
  57. Zach, think about that. Do you think your parents could handle knowing there are such entities? And what if the |OC| happens to show up?


    Also, Zanzibar is lame. Lame. Too hot here.

    Query: Where in Zanzibar is the Mistletoe Patch Field?
    Clarification: Include which island.
    Clarification: North, east, south or west?

    ReplyDelete
  58. Input accepted. Response: The Mistletoe Patch Field is a pocket dimension in Zanzibar. All basic spatial reasonings such as islands and cardinal directions are irrelevant. Simply wait for the MPF to...appear.

    ReplyDelete
  59. I see.

    Just out of curiosity:
    Statement: Say I'm in a public place and it appears. I assume I'll be the only one to see it.
    Query: When I enter, what will everyone else see? Will they just forget I was ever there?

    ReplyDelete
  60. Input accepted. Response: Basically, yes.

    ReplyDelete
  61. Statement: Beautiful white horse following me around, it's hair straight down to it's hooves, I mean they're so bright, it's like, I honestly don't think they're black. No wings, though, so I'm guessing this is just the "black sheep" horse, unless Pegasus has friends with silver hooves.

    ReplyDelete
  62. Tron, He's already come damn close to killing me once. They need to know sooner or later.

    Besides, you're totally harshing on my cool ideas. No one EVER lets me have fun anymore.

    Fine.

    We'll just play Jenga.

    ReplyDelete
  63. Who's come close to killing you storm? Sorry kind of tired and spay.

    ReplyDelete
  64. The |OC.| Wacky Waving Inflatable Tentacle Flailing Slender Man.

    I've run into him once and I wish NEVER TO AGAIN.

    ReplyDelete
  65. @Zach, doesn't Avis have telekinetic powers? Wouldn't she hole the tower in place while pulling out one of the bars? ;D

    Also, only once? Who was he hunting when you ran into him?

    ReplyDelete
  66. Stimulus accepted. Response: That'd be cheating. She'd use her powers to move a block out, not to cheat; you can't have luck if there's no risk.

    ReplyDelete
  67. Query: R.T Little advice?

    ReplyDelete
  68. Input accepted. Response: Do not make any fast moves or show hostile intent. If it was going to try and kill you, it would have done it already.

    ReplyDelete
  69. Oh, that reminds me:

    Query: Is there anything that pissed off Yggdrasil, Norn or Jörmungandr that I should know about?

    ReplyDelete
  70. Alright, where should I take this horse?

    ReplyDelete
  71. Uhm...wow, nevermind. I think I found Pegasus guys, I think I found Pegasus...gotta go now...

    ReplyDelete
  72. Input accepted. Response: Just...do not show hostile intent.

    ReplyDelete
  73. Ok then. *lights up*

    ReplyDelete
  74. Osort, request: Possibility of being able to locate and barter with one of the entities considered benign or benevolent.

    Request: instructions on how to do so.

    Statement: I'm not going to fuck this up...I'm not going to do something stupid...there's an alternate, and I'm going to fucking take it.

    ReplyDelete
  75. What I was doing?

    I...yeah, no. I'm not gonna talk about this again.

    He was after me, but I don't think he expected me to fight back. Leave it at that.

    ReplyDelete
  76. Input accepted. Response: 51.2%.
