Primary A Might as well get things out of the way. Plus it helps make sure they have plenty of time to prepare as well as yourself.

Secondary C Better get all the stress out that you can to get your mind clear and centered. Plus starting the day feeling better after a nightmare would help the rest of the day run smoother.

>power armor
Wait, wait, wait, you mean this isn't the usual unpowered armor from Polo Quest? Ok, yeah, close quarters combat is suicide. That said, if I'm not wrong Kan is in the way of the only exit. If he just up and attacks or stalling fails, the goo doesn't immobilize, and we've got no other exit we're in a real bad position. Still, Sissiri "There is no such thing as a fair fight for survival" Issukoa isn't one to go quietly.

One last gambit if all else fails. Spray goo at Kan's eyes. While he's blinded, either steal the plasma sword and turn it on him, or run past him out the exit while he's distracted.

I don't think that's power armor. It's not bulky enough. That's just the usual external armor Neumono soldiers can get.

Maybe. Though in a universe with skin-tight nano power armor I wouldn't be able to tell.

If you are correct though, then spray and run might be the best option.

The air today is thick in Moot Point. Fog creeps through the streets, rising into alleyways as if the harbor itself was making an effort to fill the city. On the far cliff above, Augustine Moot looms; her sword lit with a powerful magelight lantern to warn sailors of the rocks below.

The Sender nods and steps back, “Okay, get ready...”

Gabe tears open a gate and the four of them rush into the blazing disc one after another.

They emerge with a short drop: finding themselves standing in what seems to be a forest. Thick, black trunked trees stretch into a canopy of fog, while a pale mist curls around their ankles.

“Is this...?” Kol whispers. As if to answer him, the ground beneath them shifts and the forest sways

The Tale of the Lonely Merchant. Tell a story about a trader with a small boat who has to take things far from their hive, to trade for, oh, lets say warm pelts for frozen weather, that the hive needs for the children to survive. Every tribe they meet they extol a different virtue of their hive, but is mocked for being alone. And then they die moments from getting home, lamenting over each of the virtues they proclaimed, that they will never see them again, because they died alone. You wanted to go all-in for a theme of reputation, but remembered that sad endings always win. As always, try to throw in some rhyme, alliteration, and metre.

>We need to know your strengths and weaknesses.
That’s easy, I’m good at everything. I pick things up fast like J’raine. The only weakness I can think of is violin since I only started learning last month, but I don’t have one in my backpack anyway. Whatever idea I come up with, I can do.

>Try to have fun and relax.
That’s easy, I like this game. I take out my sketchbook and sit down to doodle while ideas flow. Trying to articulate my point about our Hive sounds nice, but it doesn’t really mean much if I don’t communicate it through the art in a concise way. I’ll go with the Merchant idea for now, but I’m still not sure about the medium. I could draw it out, in which case I’d need to encapsulate everything I want to say in a single image and would need to have a good description to work off. Or I could tell a regular story which is easier but anything more complicated like making it rhyme or being creative with wordplay would take too much time if the specific embellishments don’t occur to me.

I kind of lose track of time working but eventually Sock hops up, stands in front of us and we all focus our attention on him. He takes a short bow and starts with low, repeated notes before layering in more breathy sounds. It takes me a few moments before I get what he’s doing. He’s copying the sound of lapping water and the breeze that’s around us right now. Unfortunately, the flute isn’t the right kind of instrument for the sounds water makes as it brushes against the docks. It sounds slightly off when the actual water is still in the background. He also isn’t riding the music off his empathy. He’s too excited and happy, when he should be projecting a clam and serene mood. The melody itself is good, if short, but it’s not his best work.

As soon as Sock finishes Leo puts her head down and starts scribbling

Yeaaah, probably a good point. Furthermore, it might make more sense to spend longer developing your argument before presenting it.

I think you should do a story. Perhaps a series of verses with varying meters and tempos to match the hive he’s encountered this time. Not sure I have any specific lines for you, but coming up with that sort of stuff manually comes a lot easier when you set out a rhythmic framework to restrict yourself by.

Something along the lines of... this? https://youtu.be/PUZn1I6llJs

You don’t have to carry this particular tune if you don’t like it (or suspect that you’d get caught- never mind, don’t think about it too hard). Perhaps open with a merchant bemoaning a lack of wind to carry his sail upstream, and supposes that he’ll just drift downstream. He’ll meet an art hive merely curious where he’s going, then another merchant hive keen on exchanging wares and a little rival ribbing. He might be egged into a race with a war hive (the frantic section), be ignored by a hive too stoned to care about anybody, and pass by a cuddle hive who want him to stay with them (the upbeat 4/4 time section), finally finishing with another art hive who ask him the same question as at the beginning (“Where are you going?”), but receiving a different answer to the one he gave the first time. If that’s too much to write in such a short time, you’re free to cut verses.

Unless she want's you to do another favor to pay her back, you could invite Ada over here to take her pick of the savage. You know, if you want an excuse to invite Ada over.

Bust out the UAM. I know Troy's got some exotic beats.

I bet you could make a Quality Lath with those vehicle parts, Probably a Proper Drill Press and Table saw after trading for a couple more parts. With the right blueprints and a couple trades, the high tech and computer parts could be made into an oscilloscope and microscope, while the high-grade scrap can probably be made into a variety of hand tools.

You could probably put together your own workshop.

The guns you collected are all garbage and should be disassembled, but you could be well on your way to making your own.

.....hey, I just thought of something that I’d like to try after Vol is done training his blood magic. Troy said his power let’s him move through similar objects, right? Well, if you made a Caesura and Vol made a barrier, would Troy be able to Doors between the two barriers? If he can, that would open up lots of possibilities in the future!

But if that doesn’t work, then we can try again later when Roland learns how to make 2 Caesuras at a time to see if that works or not.

Holy shit, that’s a lot of scrap!

Troy was already going to be the one designated to dismantle the rounds. Rol was too scared.

Lets just keep the .50 rounds. The rest are probably fairly common and/or cheap. Lets not mess with the guns since they all seem like accidents waiting to happen and lets see if we can either buy or trade for some professionally made guns or break into a demon infested military base somewhere.

Gunpowder makes shit explosives. It burns, but it it doesnt really explode. That is black powder. Extracting the gunpowder is still useful for if we want to make our own bullets later on, however.

Might as well try to set up a permanent one. You’ve got a source of water here, which will be necessary for your non-ichor team members.

Yay, and update! I was afraid this was dead!

Lets start base building. Make sure to build it underground so you can use the earth as insulation as well as fortification (which is a must with a possibly uber strong enemy relatively close by). Lets also skip the fire until we have some sort of shelter set up so we don't give off light. Smoke should only be a problem during the day, but you can see a fire for quite a ways at night, even in the woods.

Anyway, bottom line is that he probably has the equipment, but Calliope is probably making him really uncomfortable, not to mention reminding him of his creator)

You all meet, at midnight, in the middle of a flying castle that's about to explode.

Which of you owns this place, or is it held jointly between two or more?
What sort of landscape is below it?
Who's trying to summon a demon, which one, and for what larger purpose?
Who's trying to interrupt that ritual?
Who's trying to patch the damage to prevent an explosion?
Who (or what) inflicted that damage in the first place?
Which of you snuck in to rob the vault while everybody else is distracted, and what were you surprised to find there?
Which mighty artifacts, if any, do the lot of you collectively have on hand?

Who are you people?

"I might be getting them a tad dirty, but there's a lot more to life than being trapped in anything so restrictive. But fine," Light finally acquiesced to Morse's desire to NOT have her clothes stained with road dust any more than they were already. As she got up, however, she took advantage of the fact that she was substantially faster and still comparatively an 'unknown' variable to steal a kiss from Morse before pivoting on her heel to sit down next to her. "If you wan't me to take a bath, there's a small stream near enough here that I've been getting water from the last few days I was training, but you have to join me to make sure I get clean enough for you.

"Beyond that, there's definitely a cult. Something dedicated to someone they called 'the Syrinx Prophet Executioner'. They had taken some slaves from the nearby town for sale, but there was a bigger plan in Bear's Pond. I had a few agents captured, most of them Haltan, like you would expect given the region and the people, it was a cell based organization, so they couldn't point me anywhere useful. I had planned on finding the cult base out here since the hypermajority of the bunch went out this way, but even if it isn't their HQ then I guess it still wasn't a waste of time, since I met you, and the other most beautiful person I've ever met." She felt almost like she appended that last statement, but the only things she'd really gathered about the so called Lute is that she was probably either an Anathema, a terribly trained Dragon Blooded, or otherwise not a threat level essence user in direct combat, and she seemed to want her to follow her heart, which in retrospect wasn't exactly a trifling amount, but still was hardly enough to really strike up a conversation.

Something new spoke in Arberus' mind. It wasn't the only voice that tied itself to his mind, but it was currently the loudest. Although it had no actual voice it still had a sound. A sort of telepathic accent.

It reminded him of a deeply voiced spoiled-child.

'"Kiiiiiiill theeeeeeem.'"

He tried 'speaking' back. He wasn't too sure how communicating worked with this... Him? Spirit? Demon? He didn't care. So he spoke aloud.

"It'll be funner if we have this guy help us find people to kill. Besides, this is my town, I'd rather kill the people I want, not just... anyone."

'"I don't caaaaaare. Kill them allll. Then suck the marrow from their bones. Come on, do iiiiiit.'"

The voice sounded hungry, but it didn't sound wrong. Arberus had a point to make though.

>Waiting for the Monk to respond. If he doesn't offer me a target that placates the Cup
If you're not yourself proposing a deal the False Grail is interested in, that clash of wills means you spend 1 wp (which puts you at 9/10) and gain one limit (which puts you at 4/10 thanks to Greater Curse) and your action - attempting to establish surprise/roll Join Debate prior to social combat - automatically botches.

Arberus spends several minutes rambling incoherently, getting into a loud argument with an outwardly unresponsive cup he's holding in his off-hand, and generally making it look like he's out of touch with reality to the point of being a danger to himself and others. The crowd finds this all clownishly amusing, and the spiked armor squeezably cute; monks take the opportunity to warn everyone that he's clearly possessed by something malevolent, and that civilians should stay back.

>rolled 7, 8, 1, 1, 8, 6
Social attack on the monks, enhanced with Stoke The Flame for 3m, a two-die stunt, and a +3 bonus from monologue-based aiming, also fails... mostly due to a -3 external penalty from conflict with the False Grail's Urge, and Arberus's total lack of expertise at public speaking, but the fact that the monks have decent Integrity and correspondingly solid Dodge MDVs could have also contributed. MDV penalty from relative Appearance is canceled out by bonuses from

"Well, my previous journey, investigation into piracy, and diplomatic mission have all been effectively put on hold with this unexpected sojourn hell-wards.

"For now, I would accompany you investigating this cult's activities, later I may seek to protect this exiled land by delivering it to the protection of a demon lord, rather than let it be wasted by the squabbling and warring of lesser demons over its bounty."

Morse obviously has no reason to care for this region, but she might be tempted by the rewards of a demon lord's favor. And as for Rivers, well, deals with the devil are part of the story of anathema, no?

>out to steal the heart from Embri
A thief, to steal from the Thief? Most amusing indeed!

Lute will decline to take sides in this conflict for now, as she has met the Lady Embri previously. She might perhaps be able to negotiate a compromise, if Morse is willing to consider such a resolution.

"As far as I can tell, the 'rot-resistant' explicitly requests we prepare him something suitable for water and food storage or construction." Morse shakes her head. "You wouldn't need rot-resistant wood if you were just making a table. He's not just trying to find something mortals would ascribe value to... hmm. I know you mentioned not having encyclopedic knowledge of Malfeas, but surely you must know what holds value in the eyes of demons. Perhaps we can sell him the soil of Creation, or maybe a few frogs from a nearby demense."

Morse plays them out all the way back to the town-- it's quite a trip for them, so she won't be making it back with her group anytime soon-- unless Lute or River has something to say about it.

"Earlier, you mentioned making a deal with... demons. Which demon in particular are we dealing with...? I typically don't go out of my way to summon in things that could make my mission a failure, let alone strong enough to lock me in a cage." Morse has read how these books go before-- you summon in a powerful demon, then you're getting kicked into the sun or come down with a case of demon worship. It almost never goes well for you-- otherwise, why would a demon bother to bargain with the idiot who summoned them knowing that they'd lose in the deal? If Morse were a demon, she'd get tired of being called in for petty things like plumbing and pickle jars rather quickly. "I see no reason why asking a demon to help us wouldn't end up with half of us on fire and the other half of us content with the fire we are now on."

You slam into him hard enough for the back of his head to hit the table, before pulling away to make sure he didn’t get hurt too badly. He doesn’t seem to mind, because as soon as you stop fucking his throat he grabs your hips and forces you to plow into his snout even harder. When you find a steady pace he lets go of you and start jerking himself off.

“ T-that’s r-right… y-you’re worthless at anything b-but… mmm… being a cock warmer. You’re just a walking slab of m-meat for me to use and throw away…”

Your offices is filled by the sound of his whole body hitting the table as you thrust into him, coupled with the wet sounds of your ovipositor pulling out of his mouth before getting forced down his throat yet again.

“Fuck… I’m g-going to pump y-your full of eggs, d-dump my e-egg sack down your throat and y-you’ll love it, l-like t-the good little incubator you are… t-then I’m just going to throw you away like the fucking trash you are after I’m done fi- huh?”

Well this sucks.

You should tell her about the police discovering Xaby is an SAI, but you can’t tell her over the comm because the cops could be monitoring her comms, since Xaby came to New Horizon with her family and they could get in trouble for smuggling Xaby here.

But you can’t exactly have her come over right now with Punk wrapped around your ovipositor!

That’s pretty risky. If Rishi isn’t careful, she might accidentally send Lily some trash talk meant for Punk! And that will probably lead to a very big misunderstanding!

We can't determine when the perp left since Villi had a severe case of fainting goat syndrome and Russel arrived late. We can narrow it down to when russel arrived though, but it's probably about the time he called us.

Barring any further unlikely witnesses, our best bet is to get other evidence first.

Starting with the donut stuck on Vili's horn, that evidence is absolutely crucial.

All you can see are stars.

And you can't remember what you were doing prior to this moment, prior to realizing that you're staring at an impossible expanse of space. Tiny pinpricks of light glow, and everything is silent.

You can't move, and that should worry you. The fact that it doesn't worry you should also be worrying you, but you can't seem to quite reach that. It's like a sore tooth that's been numbed at the dentist, where you know with certainty that it should hurt to poke but there's a lack of it.

You can't move. You can't feel. You don't know at this moment if you even have arms or legs, the lack of sensation is that complete.

Abruptly a chime rings in a way that feels very much like you're not quite hearing it properly. A pleasantly rough voice comes in mid-sentence, talking to someone else.

Kitalfa and Tyros have the best chances at supporting life, but TD 8-466 could be a gold mine for us. As a blue star, it's definitely young. That means there's a good chance it's actually a remanent of numerous older long-dead stars, which means one thing: Heavy Elements.

You climb back up towards the storagehouse until a hail of loud talking cackles through the misty night air.

A bossy voice inquires "The storage bay has lost its lighting! Who's done this? The lights can't be turned on!"

"We check-"

One of your earlier hostile acquaintances interrupts the second voice "Shut up Scrolly, they can be anywhere. There were shots near the harbor, how about splitting up half..."

Bossy voice yells "NO! These escaped Lunatics are dangerous as it fucking gets! It's for sure they have stolen weapons and shoot civilians the lot they find them."

"Yes sir!"

"Check the whole waterline from next to the storage bay and around the piers, they could be hiding in the water or swimming across the fucking bay to get to more civilians."

Yeah, just get a vehicle and beat it.

btw, most quality military guns can work while waterlogged, they just cant fire while submerged.

So how does this full auto sniper rifle work? I mean, sniper rifles generally only need one shot to do the job. Is it like a burst type thing or is it just a rifle that happens to have a scope that can also fire in full auto? If it has a suppressor and we can get to a sufficient distance, we may actually be able to neutralize these guys and then leave.

If you do go after them, it will need to be quiet bc more gunshots will just draw more people onto you.

The name's Ren. And I think she's projecting a bit as our objective isn't really to kill people, but to get out of here.

Well, we can't get a boat while they're searching the docks here. Also, I wonder what happened to the boat motor that we may or may not have been bringing along. Anyway, there's 3 options that I see.
1. We could make our way by cleaning these guys up. For that, we'd ideally need to find some high ground to pick them off from. And not make the same mistake of using targetting laser in the fog. Perhaps if we made our way on top of the Palace building, but something tells me that building wouldn't be quite open to visitors.
2. We could hide again in one of the nearby buildings. There's apartments behind the storagehouse so we might stay there until these guys are gone.
3. We could look for other options by crossing the bridge over the river and checking out the buildings and piers over there. It's plausible there would be some boats over there as well.

I'm somewhat undecided which of these options would be best. I guess first go with 2 to see if we can gain access to the apartments, and if that doesn't work, then go with 3. If there's no boats over there, then we go with 1.

"The name's Ren."

1 - You sneak through the streets to find the Palace building next to the docks. The front doors to the plaza seemed to be guarded by riflemen, but the backdoor has the ladder and no guards, only a civilian smoking a cigarette at the moment.

2 - There are people inside the apartments, but there's an easier way there to the rooftop.

3 - Blood Jinx agrees to crossing the river and she thinks the scopes would be useful to gather some more detailed info about the surroundings, the bridge, the river and opportunities to cross the river unnoticed.

Blood Jinx explains that Brasarian rifles are more accurate and sophisticated than the handcrafted southwestern Rednyan large caliber "cannons and semi-cannons". She doesn't want to explain in depth right now, but she says it's recoilless in 'slow-mo autofire' sniper rifle, but low rate of fire in close combat against heavy armor compared to these Rednyan rifles with bigger caliber. The gun you have also has a laser target, a suppressor and a flash hider.
No. 913798 ID: b70ae2

The rooftop at the apartments isn't very useful because it doesn't provide a clear sight of the docks. I'd go with the Palace first then, since its rooftop seems accessible.

Wait for a few minutes until the civilian is done smoking and moves out of the way. Assuming he does so. If he doesn't move, then off him quietly with the sniper rifle.
Then, climb up the ladder (disable the camera first). Once we're up there, Blood Jinx can treat her wounds, modify her clothes, read the bounty hunter letter or whatever, while we do our business.

Can a machine dream?

It’s an odd question, one the prewar scientists often debated when the midnight oil was burning low but the actual work ahead of them was too daunting a prospect to consider. Could a machine, insomuch as it was a being whose desires were derived from dozens upon dozens of algorithms, ever understand that natural state of blissful, protean nonsense that took the human mind beyond the realm of logical limitations?

Even with the dawn of the first AIs or perhaps because of that inciting incident, the question only seemed to grow more muddled over time. As machines learned to think, to plan, as they took on ambition and personalities of their own, the question of what constituted the final, impassable bridge between what was human and what was artificial, that most sacred of lines, was an ever-shifting topic of speculation.

In the end, dreams became a common subject. Could something that was wholly logical, whose perceptions and responses could be reduced to lines of code: could such a thing as never even needed sleep to begin with, enter a state of unknowing and yet somehow revelatory unconsciousness? Even if it could, at that point, would it be a dream in truth or merely a simulation, something inherently bound to a perfect and rational order?

Perhaps, in the end, the creators feared what they had forged in their own image. Perhaps that is why, when the technology was there to create hundreds if not thousands of artificial intelligences, a virtual army that mimicked the intellectual prowess of the greatest scientists of their age, they limited themselves instead to what they could reliably hold in the palms of their hands.

Now, what to do next? At least when you were sifting through the Vault records, you found a copy of the VATS system which, with Theodore’s permission, you downloaded. Now for the bigger question.

“Theodore?” you ask the canine overseer presently scratching behind brain case and ear as he attempts to ready himself for a long night.


“I know that you’re looking for human residents in the future to help with upkeep, but do you have enough standard issue PipBoys that I could distribute to some key human allies back in the Metro?”

“Well, you’ll understand if we aren’t replete with them,” he responds, servos whirring as mechanical limbs push him to his feet. “There were precious few spares we had on hand that weren’t distributed throughout the course of experiment and fewer still which didn’t subsequently leave with the Vault residents. Most of what are left are the control models, and for obvious reasons, I’ll want to limit access to them.”

"Well there wasn't any petals. Or wine. Or even chains. But this was a close second. Was that as much fun for you?"

"...hey. Are you okay?"

That is literally the least important thing to be concerned about.
However, to answer your question, I believe it is outside our concept of sex, and simply takes on the characteristics of the corpse it infests.

She's not disappearing the fog's coming back. Or smog. I don't care. Barely awake for two hours and already I'm exhausted.

:sergei:"Okay so the long and short of it? That's my brother. Or maybe my sister. I can't tell. It was one of my father's spawn. He's a cult creep who selects women to breed for their genetic markers, gets into long term relationships, and then steals the babies so he can perform sick experiments and indoctrination on them for his god. I don't have solid proof of this, but clues are pointing in that direction. My mother managed to catch on and saved me from this.

But Vidian here? She-"

"Zat's her name?"

:sergei:No, but they call her-nevermind. She's been plaguing me ever since you arrived. And because of her my fiancee might be dead."

"Oh...oh dear I'm sorry. You were to be wed?"

:sergei:"Um...sort of yes. I-ah. I don't exactly have it ironed out how the family will be though..."

"Ah yes, you Rezans and your many spousal family units. 'Ow do you get zose ordered?"

We have the ritual circle stored in our logs. We can show you later so you can transcribe this stuff.

For now, get Private Danielsi in a coffin and ready for autopsy and burial. Then we look for signs of further tampering in this area - there might be a hack to hijack this portal rune but I doubt the cult would spend the resources just for your sister to troll in and say hello. This implies that she or one of the other cult agents drew / altered the rune, and did other things nearby. Find those other things.

Search the site for any other anomalies.
Then make arrangements for the Private's funeral.

Keep searching the area. Still need to find out what's up with the smog.

Your broken spirit and body rests on a roof of a decrepit building in a city just as ruined. The sky is red and filled with black clouds, the sun not rising or setting, nowhere in sight. You have fallen here, the crater of your impact shocking both in its size and in the fact that you haven't broken through into the building. Pieces of what you were, what you could have been, land around the roof and into the street below. Laughter rings out, and the building starts to shake. You have failed, you know that much. More information is evasive - only that you are dying, and that dying here means not death, but something much worse. Some sort of wager, some sort of bet.

But you are not dead yet. Yes, most everything that falls near you, within reach, is broken and useless. But here and there are pristine, beautiful things, more ideas than objects. It was you, you know, that gave them shape once. You built them from the nothing, the void that rests between consciousness and Dream, from nothing but ideas and wonder. They have lost most of their luster - whatever struk you stripped them of most of their glory. But here they are. Relics. Artifacts. Things that once were, and could be again. And if you want to live, you'll need one. You don't know why you know you could take only the one, but it's a reality that is apparent.

The enemy is monstrous. A beast with swords for fur, and guns for claws. It laughs as it destroys another building, just nearby. You are sure that it is looking for you. It is only a matter of time, and there is no escape.

What shall you take, DREAMER?

>"...Are you telling me that my dream last night had something to do with Brandon's death?"
She clearly knows more than you about this and is expecting you to know some more.

"Are you telling me my dream last night had to do with Brandon's death?" you ask, voice wavering. This is too much. If you caused him to...
"Yes, and no." Jennifer says. Listen, I have to start from the top, because of this curse. But when I say curse I more mean... lost bet." she meets your raised eyebrow, and sighs. "I'm not sure how it works either. But some people, let's call them... I guess we can't use the original term, so we'll have to go with, uh, Dream Warriors?"
"What, like the horror movie?"
"No! ...Mmmostly no!" she rubs her eyes then adjusts her glasses back into place. "Look, some people are capable of lucid dreaming. You know what that is. It's where you're consciously aware of being in a dream, but in control of that dream."
"Dream Warriors are capable of going a step further. I guess you'd call us espers." she says, "But only in the realm of dreams, and only even more specifically in wagers, bets, and gambles within those dreams. The first step is to approach another Warrior and demand something of theirs, or a specific task. Or even for them to change, in some way. The other warrior makes a counterbet. And then when you sleep, you fight along those terms."
"And anything can be on the table?"
"Anything. You could make someone a slave, if you wanted. There's something about the dream and the fight that makes it happen, changes the mind. And that's basically how your curse works, I... think. You can't remember the name

So... what's the upside? Being able to lose everything, and have a target on your back doesn't seem worth being able to take what you can get other people to bet. At the end of the day, it's a zero sum game.

>Wait, so you're a Dream Warrior too?
Well duh. That or she's a badass normal who's been read in on what's going on.

How strong is Beatrice compared to the rest? I'm not sure if a confrontation right now is a good idea.
No. 913720 ID: f0fb6b

Can't we just, like, slip cyanide into her lunch or something? If she's killing members of our group in the dream realm, and that's having fatal consequences IRL, I don't see why we can't take the fight to the waking world.
