“Well cat, should we be kinda and peacibly accept his half-price deal and let him fly us to the boonies, without telling us where we are going? ¬†Or should we simply kill him now and take his ship?

Turning into an interesting thread here, albeit perhaps a little incoherent so far ūüôā ¬†I won’t ¬†take up a major character (although I’m sorely tempted to be Gigi the Wonder WereWolf –we have _possibilities_here!!)

For the time-being I’ll keep a log of the messages pertaining to the storyline, so if y’all want an arbiter for something I could oblige.(Speak and thou shalt be answered, K-9 :-)) )

So, Sporf, how do you respond to the kidnapping by this tricky Xvactor character?  And what is Belnate doing other than twiddling his thumbs in orbit around Zearnot (_not_ Plugor) keeping up the blockade? (Do we have a Pug to the rescue?)

How the story works

Have it like life. A now-war time murder will not be tolerated. I can talk with Kingpin, for instance, in e-mail and conspire an Attack on Belnate. He does not have to know that we are doing so.  Then РBammo, we come in with a fleet of eight ships to his one.

In a few weeks, maybe earlier, we’ll see about multi-characters. ¬†Let’s check interest first.

don’t listen to Merk, he doesn’t know what he is talking about. Join up with me on this adventure. Lets keep the Zearnots from endangering Plugor. ¬†So I am considered the enemy, so what. ¬†Any good battle needs two sides, and they need fighters and brains like yours. ¬†Excuse me if this looks choppy, I am on a forty character screen trying to make it look 80. ¬†I forget sometimes.Merk is good, I know that. ¬†But we can be even better if we join together.

Thank you, garion. (Belnate)

Hello! You two said it sounded fun. ¬†did you lie? ¬†Let’s just try it and see how it goes. ¬†I have two characters already, myself-Sporf, and Garion-Belnate. Two opposing sides even.

Kingpin, here is your chance to seek revenge against that mysterious mailbox killer. You know who I mean, Garion, the one who’s brother you s’posedly beat up. ¬†HaHa!

I am Sporf. I am 75% human, 25% Zearnoid. My mother is all human, my father was a war brat, concieved during the war between Zearnot and Plugor in 2167.  Though I am a peace loving man, I am skilled in the field of Knives, both standard and Magic. I also have a feline companion, one of the only Earth-born White Bengels left in existence today.  Her name РAlexa.I have but one mission in life. to find a way to safely return to Zearnot, to once3 again see my parents, who were trapped there on vacation to see Grandma when the Plugoarians took control of all space surrounding Zearnot.

We talked at the party about kickin’ this story up a little. ¬†Why doesn’t everybody make a character, could be your own pseudonym, and in a day or so, I will make an action, say design a two-man craft destined for Zearnot. ¬†I ask for a co-pilot, three respond, I pick one.. one thing leads to another in these kind of things, there is no narrator, therefore no ‘one person’ can take over.

I would like to suggest a few guidlines though:

1) Nobody can ‘destroy the Earth’ or otherwise instantaneously end the story.

2) Nobody can speak for others. These stories are strictly dialoge between characters.

3) You MUST, and that is a BIG MUST, you must have fun!

Zearnot and BBS’s of the late 80’s in Minnesota

In the late 1980’s when the Internet was just a gleam in an egghead’s mind the world was filled with personal computers with modems attached. These modems would allow one personal computer to talk to another, the same way networks work today. Some of us would share intrests by connecting to Bulletin Board Systems where we could hold threaded converstations about all kinds of things. Continue reading
