Ink Well was rather happy he wasn't too late to the party, honestly. He had been late to conversations before and it didn't seem this one had been going on too long before he noticed it. He was already awake, had done his daily routine of checking over all the books in his two bookshelves, and the stacks on the floor, and the ones around his desk, but hadn't noticed the alerts until he set down his current book with a happy sigh. Daisy Chain would always win in the end, and was a favorite character of his. Then he noticed the conversation, and remembered why he started reading at his desk anyways. Well, besides just for fun, it was mostly to pass time until the server disc of STBLE was done installing. Just to be safe, Ink looked around to make sure he hadn't missed anything else. At least his room was still in tact, bed shoved into a corner, books occupying most free space, the two previously mentioned bookshelves on opposite sides of the room, and, of course, the desk his computer was on and he was currently in front of. No burglars, meteors falling, or anything exciting that had happened besides the conversation that he probably should join before he gets distracted again.

creativeAugmentor [CA] joined the memo

CA: Hey everypony, sorry if I'm kind of late?
CA: I installed the server version first, haven't gotten to the client disc yet, so if anyone who has the client disc installed wants to team up with me you can?
CA: If you don't mind, I mean, I'm just happy to be playing with you all, since this sounds fun, despite the annoyance so far, and we can start learning more about how the game works once we start, which will be great!
CA: I'm sure we will all start enjoying ourselves once we begin!


Looking back to his bookshelves, Ink Well debated on if he should pull out a book on social interaction or not, just in case. He may have already annoyed them all, which would be really bad, since they all seem to have to be partners. He wanted to ramble on the pros and cons of just picking partners at mostly random and how it probably would be easier, if more time consuming, to plan it out just a bit more. To wonder how magic would work with the game, if it could be studied and copied somehow, despite the fact that it would be too much power for one pony to be able to alter reality like that, it would still be an interesting discussion. But he knew better then to do that, because somepony had to be optimistic about this whole thing, and rambling would probably annoy them, he knew that, if nothing else. Hopefully, the rest would be smooth sailing, wouldn't take too much time, wouldn't be frustrating and would be a fun game that would hopefully being everyone together, and would help him make some friends. But part of Ink Well knew that was way too optimistic, even for him.

Blank Space:

Crystalite wrote:You see a clean, average sized bedroom with wood panelled flooring and cloud-built walls and ceiling. A pair of lights hang from the ceiling over a desk with a labtop, in front of which Skynight sits on a bean bag chair. In the corner is a simple mattress, and a modest bookshelf doing double duty as a bedside table. Unfortunately, you can't tell what sort of books she reads: they're all turned so the spines are facing the inside. There is also a fairly large chest in the other corner with a heavy looking pad lock on it.

Skynight turns in her chair to look around. "Huh. Coulda sworn somebody was watching there..."

All of this is on your computer screen right now along with an assortment of buttons along the top.



Select. Revise. Deploy. Phernalia Registry. Grist Cache. Explore Atheneum. Alchemy Excursus.
When you hoof over them, that's what they say.

Ocean's eyes skim the chat as she sits back down. If she has to be the player, she was at least going to do it 'in-character'; she tightened the charmed watch in place as a pink stripe appeared in her now blue mane, a contrast with her grey coat.

None of the ponies she was connected with would recognise Sea Soray anyway, but she intended to keep it that way. She took note of something one of the ponies in the chat said.

TC: DP, re: Starbutt
TC: She is just a propaganda tool.
TC: I don't think she is smart enough to control things.
TC: I just finished installing the Client disk.
TC: Are there any server disks free?

TC: All right.
TC: Connecting now.


Ocean stared at the computer monitor as a message saying the above appeared on her screen. Nothing to do now except wait, really.

The room is surprisingly bare. There's a computer, a bed, and a bookcase against the wall, it's shelves filled with a mix of history books, political theory, conspiracy reports, and -most surprisingly and well worn- comics.

Taped to the wall- and peeling with age- are posters of some cheesy classic eighties movies. The curtains are opened, sunlight streaming through, which may go some way to explaining why the mare is wearing sun glasses.
Oceans computer is set up do that she sits on the floor, using her wings to type on keyboards that hang out to the sides.

There is a large wardrobe, and some small dressers. Surprisingly, for a Pegasus, none of it is made of cloud, favouring standard wood and materials.

TC: The connection sign is gone.
TC: DP, are you there?

Your cursor changes to the Revise symbol, but nothing else changes immediately.

With a loud THUNK, the wall itself extends, an extra foot of wood forming underneath the poster from the floor to the ceiling and pushing everything in front of it forward. Your grist cache goes from 200 to 199.

For a minute, Ocean was silent.
A long minute.
A long minute.

Finally, she began typing her PDA again.

TC: Unless my eyes are deceiving me, yes.
TC: You changed the size of my room.
TC: Do not touch my books.

When you open the grist cache, it shows symbols for a metric butt-ton of different grist types, but the only one you have any of is the top one, build grist, which is light blue and shaped like a gusher. You have 199 of those.

Blank clicks the select function and selects the mattress, proceeding to spin it 360 degrees.

You do this, but it spins not only the mattress, but the bedframe as well. No grist seems to be used, which is good since you only seem to have twenty. Either way, the controls are finicky. They clearly need to be handled delicately.

> Get your breakfast and rejoin your friends in the chat already.

What do you think you've been trying to do, create a UNIVERSE?

You probably could create a UNIVERSE with all the JUNK in your KITCHEN, mind you, but that takes some explaining. Your DAD - for lack of a better term - has a JOB researching...well, you used to think it was like, PRE-PONY HISTORY or ANCIENT MYTHOLOGY or something, but that doesn't explain why he's always bringing home all this RANDOM JUNK. Whatever he RESEARCHES, it apparently involves having to bring HOME a bunch of ITEMS including but not limited to PIES, FLASKS, BROKEN MAGIC EIGHT-BALLS, FIREWORKS, ROBES (that he frequently insists you BEHOLD for some reason) and perhaps most strangely of all, a SMALL TATTERED STUFFED BUNNY.

You thought maybe the BUNNY would like, have robotic parts or something weird like that, and that's why he needed it at HOME, but no. As far as you can tell, it is a perfectly ordinary STUFFED BUNNY. Admittedly, you were about EIGHT YEARS OLD when you thought that, but you still think that would have been PRETTY COOL.

Actually, most of this RANDOM JUNK is PRETTY COOL, you admit to yourself with some reluctance. What is decidedly NOT COOL is the fact that your dad sticks this STUFF in the most RANDOM-FLANK places. Those aforementioned FIREWORKS? Guess where you found them.

No, do it. Stop reading for a second and just take a random guess.

They were in the BUCKING OVEN, that's where the BUCKING FIREWORKS were. You see why making WAFFLES is a TREACHEROUS AFFAIR in this household? And don't even get you started on making BURGERS. It's not your DAD'S fault, you've always told yourself, it's all that COFFEE he drinks, it scatters the brain. But you still can't help feeling a bit of RESENTMENT towards him.

Ugh. Now you're too ANNOYED to eat WAFFLES, even though that doesn't make any sense. You head back upstairs to your room, trying not to trip over ASSORTED MAGAZINES or RINDS OF CHEESE along the way.


> Alright, time to boot this baby up.

You get back on your COMPUTER and see what you've missed since you left. Not much, from the look of things. Not sure what you were expecting there, HOMESLICE.

LF: Okay then so, that's a "no" on the waffles, unless you like them with extra gunpowder.
LF: Which you might.
LF: I wouldn't put it past some of you.
LF: Anyway, glad to see we're getting into shape here. Now all we need's some color, so I guess I'll serve up something digital instead of something griddled.
LF: Like, say, a client disk. You want to serve me up, fellow inker? Because if not then yank off, we've got business to do.
LF: Kidding. Kind of.

CA: Oh, that sounds great!

Ink Well actually wasn't being sarcastic about that, smiling as he continues to type. He didn't really believe LF was kidding, from what he had heard from him before, but maybe he was. Maybe that was some kind of joke. Regardless, he wasn't just going to 'yank off'. Whatever that meant, he assumed it meant leave.

CA: Uh, as long as you don't mind, I mean, I don't know how good I'll be at this, but I have to try, right?
CA: Just message me when you're done installing, okay?
CA: If you don't mind.



Out of character:
Sorry for being late, everyone.
