The Tablet And The Dagger Interim OOC Thread

The Tablet And The Dagger Interim OOC Thread
OK, so here's a thread for OOC and general discussion of The Tablet And The Dagger while Brass Goggles' forum is apparently offline.

Do we want to continue the Game here on Spare Goggles?

We could if everyone rembered where we left off. I think I still have the thread up with my last post on my home computer. I can check when I get home from work.

Steam Lomdon... Heck, way back, when my health went south for a bit, I killed off (apparently) my character, due to not really being only to see or type easily .. Wonder if it would be possible to 'reappear'.... Thoughts?

Well I am making a video game out of that story with an expanded beginning section and a new first quest one of the players set up but never did anything with so I imagine you will have a bigger roll there but we did have you pop back up later right before we met the creatures from the beyond that were all built on the Russian rivalry you started up. Man that story had some amazing twists.

I went ahead and started a "Short RP's" section (located in Portrayal Stories right under the Steam London links). I guess the "storyline" section would be where the summary goes, unless you want to make a different page for it (whichever you prefer).

There're also pages in the "Tablet" section for Errata, Miscellanea, Characters, and Ships. (just had a wild hair and decided to go ahead and create it just in case).

HAC, Maybe you could join The Tablet and the Dagger (TTATD), if you're wanting to get into roleplay again... Very Happy

I think those sections will work grate and if we do later decide to expand beyond this one mission it will be a good reference. I have been thinking about expanding and perhaps an episodic string of missions that keep a story going but are open enough to allow people to come and go as they please.

Also I had an idea on the greenies and I was wondering if as the parasites slowly killed their host body they slowed down from fast hunting zombies to slow but powerful ones. Kind of like a decay, i imagine it would take a while tho.

Yes, I was thinking along those same lines; basically, the 'normalcy' phase that your character mentioned, then Rourke's 'swarm' phase, then I suppose the slower-but-more-powerful phase, perhaps with a kind of sentience that either augments or enslaves the personality of the host.

I think the "everyone" part is the problem. Before we have everyone assembled here on the forum, BG will be back up. So my suggestion would be, to just wait. We can discuss offtopic, like the Greenies, in the meantime.
(You create them, I'll kill them, that's my idea about the Greenies btw.)

The story moved a bit fast at that point - so can we just assume that EVERYONE got some of Ms Starlings experimental ammunition, without everyone writing it seperately?

That's what I was hoping for, or alternatively, I could just enter a line in a post to that effect.


's a link to the TTATD afrticle on the Brass Goggles Wiki That I created (such as it is):

I figure everyone got some but there are limited rounds to keep things tense. Is the storm that is following the dagger from the tablet trying to conceal it, protect it or eventually rip the ship apart? Mainly because seeing a greenie fried would be kind of cool and if it trying to get at us there could be a few close calls with lightning before we get inside the ship. (did you know that sometimes before a lightning strike your hair will stand up on end?)

My thought originally was that it's an instrument of the will of the Plague God Nirgal trying to destroy the people who usurped his name and tried to appropriate his power (residing within the Tablet) for their own sacriligious (to him) ends. Sort of a re-imagined Mummy's Curse kind of thing.

Yes, we have lots of spectacular lightning here in Southeast Texas; my hair stands up a lot. Maybe that explains a few things... Shocked

Hmmm... one of several things, or maybe a combination...
1. Nirgal himself shows up
2.Areshkigal shows up and throws death-bolts everywhere
3. Justin Bieber appears and does his santa claus tune complete with breakdancing greenies (hey, a plague by any other name...sorry, couldn't resist)
4. tablet vaporizes and the world is left with a plague for mankind to solve all alone.
5. tablet vaporizes, Nirgal appears and lifts teh curse of teh plague but leaves a worse one in its place.
6. the storm begins raining infective ichor all ove rthe place.
all in all, I'd think it'd be some very bad mojo, so to speak.

Re: The Tablet And The Dagger Interim OOC Thread

Post  Miss Gaslight on Thu Dec 15, 2011 8:55 am

So right now we four levels on greenie infection.

Normalcy stage
A fresh bitten victim that has yet to have the parasite hatch.

Stage One Coloring
Happens hours to days after normalcy. Has some parasite breeding but is not completely ruled by it yet. May not be completely integrated in the hive mind and takes longer and has a milder reaction to Starling's anti-fungal. Slightly less dangerous and has a very pale green coloration.

Sage Two Rage
Happens up to a week after normalcy. Has extensive parasite breeding and partial hive mind integration. Vivid green coloration and slight musty sent from fungus growth. Has a strong reaction to Starling's anti-fungal, up to and including intense pain, foaming of the mouth, bleeding from the eyes and disorientation. Highly dangerous and fast.

Stage three Juggernaut
Happens a few weeks up to a month after normalcy. Has full hive mind integration and large muscular growths. Deep green almost black coloration and a heavy musty sent from fungus growth. Has a strong reaction to Starling's anti-fungal but it takes a very large dose and a long tome for it to get past the infections defenses. Highly dangerous and slow but with monstrous strenght.
