I had my suspicions that Draconis was one of your aliases (aliai?), but I guess not :p It's interesting in what it suggests. Xeno Bees live on Earth! We are all doomed!

Re: [OOC] Wheren mad props are given when due
Why thank you. That's what happens when I get the rare downtime at work. I need to represent us biological types after all. Turns out the TITANs had a sense of humor using old 20th century flat vids as inspiration. Well with a twist that is. Yes you can talk to a 'monster'. She's friendly enough when you've got a few million kilometers between you. I'm working on her background. Still haven't decided what point of view to use. Might as well have some fun here as no GM in their right mind would let me play my lovely Xeno femme very fatale in real life. "You want to play what?" I tend to get that a lot. }; )

Such religiosity from TITAN-spawn... There's fun to be played with there. Of course, I can't stop thinking of Inferno from Beast Wars going "YES, MY QUEEN!"

It's mostly because once the evil alien gets involved, any discussion kind of halts. Setting aside the fact that "Oh bugger, there's this monster talking to us!" for a moment, it also makes it like discussing the particulars of anal sex in front of your grandmother: While some people might be okay with that, it tends to drive others into silence from the sheer fact that there are some things they don't want to say in front of someone.

You have interesting notions of privacy. I would think that you'd realize that anything put on the net, or the mesh as it where can be accessed by those you're talking about given enough effort. I turn your attention to Wikileaks. If you want to talk about anal sex I'd do in the flesh where some mass media isn't involved. Also call me crazy but I doubt philosophy and economics are such sensitive issues.

Re: [OOC] Wheren mad props are given when due
That was just a metaphor, and not a great one. If you want a better one, imagine you were in a chatroom, discussing philosophy, when Jeffrey Dahmer signs on (ignoring his notable handicap of being dead) and starts making subtly and overtly threatening statements towards you. Given the fact that the Exsurgent Virus can be spread via digital transmission, it may even be apt to suggest you were discussing this face to face with someone and Dahmer just strolls up. If your first reaction is "Oh, hey Dahmer, nice knife. So, anyway, as I was saying about the rights of man..." and not "I have to get out of here! This guy's a psycho!", something is clearly wrong with your survival instincts. An Exsurgent is in every way bad news. The only place you want to see them is beneath a Lunar mass driver shot. You don't want to converse with them. At most, you'd put a trace on them and submit the info to someone in power or, if you're brave or dumb enough, try to hack them, but, at the very least, you'd start ignoring their transmissions just in case something dangerous came over it. To put it simply, an Exsurgent is not someone I, or any sane person who didn't have to, would talk to, nor would my character. AtC survived the Fall, just barely, and he's still scared shitless of the TITANs. He's not about to discuss the finer points of philosophy with one of their pawns.

Notable handicap heh. That brought a smile, very amusing. I didn't exactly expect hugs all around. Actually I would have used Hannibal Lecter, then your analogy is more fitting.

Re: [OOC] Wheren mad props are given when due
I'm not trying to be mean here, so sorry if it seems that way. I know I'm probably coming off as angry, but I can undertstand that causing silence wasn't your intention. However, in character, AtC would just start blocking transmissions from the sender and send out an alert to a possible presence. An Exsurgent is bad news. While, say, the utterly scientific Root may be glad to discuss things, and the prideful Jovian Picollo may want to argue with you, my character is a Fall survivor whose ass is on the line if people even THINK there's an infection there because of him. Basically, I doubt any conversations between him and your Exsurgent are likely to occur, at least in discussions he initiates.

And Picollo is pretty fucked up as a guy. He is a man with precisely zero control of his fate, the Fool card played on top of the Emperor. Don't expect him to make rational decisions, and remember that he is bugged by at least the Jovian Intel net, Firewall, and whomever Kerimov represents. Apocalypse rides behind him, and all that he touches is dissolved despite his greatest efforts to grasp onto the phenomenological world.

Oh I know. And I wasn't being sarcastic. Hannabal Lector really is more appropriate. I suppose I should have used a disguise but hey Xenos are not terribly subtle are they?

Do the Xenos reference something that I should look up? There seems to be a structured logic behind her that I'm not 100% I've seen all the tropes for.

Hmm? Ah that would be because I haven't written it down yet. I call it the Giger strain. Cute, no? Got a few things bouncing around in the ol' brain. Dracomorph stats and society. Giger strain forms, stats, and society. But I've been terribly busy lately. Here I am procrastinating with you guys instead of working on this lame powerpoint presentation I have to give to my entire R&D division on Monday. On that note I should get back to work.

Jezuz. Dare I ask what this R&D is in? I'd feel much safer if you ended up saying blankets. You make comfy blankets, right?

No, no, sorry to say biotechnology. I created Xenodragoness here to espouse the virtues and pleasures of the biological. Too often everyone around here gets enamored with the cyber technology of EP. Hacking, Synths, AI's and AGIs, etc etc. I wanted to remind that there are things out there that don't need a shred of tech to ruin your whole day.

Personally, I don't see an issue with biotech. Most of my characters trend that way. Personally, though, I find the idea of the maximum of my personal daily health worries being "Do I need to change my battery today?" a pleasurable concept. Top this off with things like not needing to sleep and it becomes even more enjoyable. If I could be active 24/7 without any biological necessities holding me back, the only thing I might consider missing is the simple pleasure of being tired and comfortable. Also, no unexpected brain tumors to worry about. That said, I'd be paranoid about getting hacked.

Better? I've been called a nihilist before. But I know what you mean. Balls in your court. I'm just playing defense here.

root@Wheren mad props are given when due [hr] To ssfsx17 for a very nice piece introducing the subjects of a workers revolution, of a synth case bioconservative, and our first Islamic character. I've been kicking around a few ideas for a Barsoomian revolt storyline, so I'm looking forward to more from this character. ssfsx17 @-rep +2, y-rep++;
