[Exciting] [OOG]: Time Jump Epilogue!
Posted by: Steph T (IP Logged)
Date: June 11, 2018 11:42AM

All,
I’m thrilled to finally share with you our plans for the final 2.5 events. We’d been keeping this under our hats because surprises are fun (and other more boring logistical reasons), but wanted to finally reveal now (in case it alters what you want to research).

The fall season full events (fall 1 and fall 2) will tell the story of the climactic conclusion of our campaign: the final showdown with Sister, whatever form that takes, as well as making tough decisions about what human civilization needs to be in order to continue.

Our final one-day will be an epilogue taking place 5-10 years later.

There are a lot of ways this can go - the future isn’t written in stone. Will you scream victory on a scrap pile of Sister and have all nations declare it a global holiday? Will you spend the rest of your days with a chip in your head telling you to be a happy miner for Mother? Or maybe, once backed into a corner, you will all fall in lock step with the Network and receive your implants. A victory, but at what cost? There are infinite versions that lie between these and you all have a voice in it.

But in all situations, the one-day is an epilogue/capstone to the story we’ve all told together over the past five years. The time jump is an important part of that because this story has always been about (among other things!) the FUTURE, about struggling together to create a world that WORKS - not just on the short-term scale that’s LARP-feasible to show, but on the world-scale we do our best to give you windows to see.

(I hope you’re as excited about this as I am, because you’re going to be collaborating with us on your epilogues when the time comes! Will Monte open a jazz club with Evie? How many adorable math-loving babies will AC and Felicity Anne have? Will the Hasturis ever resolve their family drama?! How many bridges can one Lance build!?! Let’s find out together!)

Drop me any questions below! Much love,
Steph!

Other what-ifs from the plot team:

* Will Laurence surrender to try and spread the good word of the legion among the slaves of the robots or lead a rag tag resistance?
* Will Liam be forced to live in the wild and lose himself to his feral genetics?
* Will a Rheovari company rip off Dax's iconic shirt and refuse to pay royalties?
* Will Basil find love?
* Will Vanguard be remembered as heroes or villains?
* Will the price of noodles skyrocket?
* Will hats go out of fashion?

EDIT: Given the clarification given on the Coalition College, I may be changing this. I guess we'll see?

I am disappointed that this is the direction we are going in. 5-10 years is a huge jump. While I am interested in seeing how the events of the last few years shape the future, I am opting out of dragging Ali along for the ride.

Assuming her survival through Fall II, Ali will be boarding Mother immediately following the event. Please consider me opted out of any and all epilogues.

I'm pretty excited for this, pretty much the only way for Stark's ambitions to play out is on that kind of time scale.

Awesome! Thanks for letting us know. This is why we wanted to let everyone know in advance. Expectation management is important when running a game.

I'm so excited for an opportunity to play an epilogue. Its something so rarely done in long form LARPs!

BTW, if anyone was fretting about the logistics of ageing their character, don't be. This is a super science future, lives are theoretically long when not being pewpewed, please feel free to be as changed or unchanged in appearance as you like.

It's funny, I was just finishing my thoughts on this this morning (back from vacation) when Facebook memories reminded me of a LARP meme from a few years ago - tell me a story about X character. And so many of the requests were "tell me what happened to Y character/epilogue!!!". And I got excited all over again to get to play out ALL our epilogues, happily/messily/chaotically braided together.

Yeah, so now you get to have an epilogue for your character before the next game starts!

By epilogue do we mean tied to the top of a flagpole and ignited in termite?

As the incoming head of plot for FI 3, and after checking with the plot team, we are happy to vouch for this and have people do as fits their preferences best in terms of aging, ignoring that passage of time, or moving to a younger body on a betweenalogue world.

We don’t want anyone forced into depicting aging if they are not interested in taking it on.

Thanks!

Can I get out of depicting ageing? I would love that...

My only questions (thus far) are:

*When the time comes, how would you like to collab with each of us individually?
*How far are we allowed to go with this?
