  1. Looks good to me. Thanks for the update!
  2. There are significant Vaurca presences upon New Gibson https://wiki.aurorastation.org/index.php?title=Ta'Akaix'Scay'extiih'aur_Zo'ra Does this conflict with your lore?
  3. How many people do you believe follow this religion? Additionally, do you think any activities they have clash with some established laws? Like tagging all shells/baselines, for example.
  4. I've have many positive interactions with your characters, and in general, you approach roleplaying with a different mindset than mine. I haven't really seen you particularly have issues in round our outside of it, but I will save my questions till after your interview.
  5. Nanotrasen Announce Project Peacekeeper In a press conference today, Nanotrasen R&D spokesperson Cynthia Verdure announced a new joint company initiative, Project Peacekeeper. "Project Peacekeeper is our answer to some of the threats Tau Ceti, indeed the galaxy is facing. You wouldn't believe how much feedback we received in our security branches from both our customers and employees. As a company, people would wonder why Nanotrasen isn't stabilizing different interpolitical situations across the galaxy. The short answer is, we are or were, in a hands off, subtle way, through economic trends. From history, we know that market forces alone charted the future of humanities expansion to the stars, and brought us to Tau Ceti and beyond. Nanotrasen is a company of innovation. Through our research, we realize that in these turbulent times, economic forces alone cannot guide colonial governments to stability. Our competitors also realize this, and so working closely with Hephaestus and Zeng-Hu we have just entered the first stage of our joint company venture, Project Peacekeeper. Already we have begun to dispense the first few experiments to our Stations with surprising and promising results. Expect to see more from us in the near future." As of yet, the Bugle has not received word of any ongoing tests from Project Peacekeeper, but our system traffic analyst Robert Steersman has noticed a increase in Caprican shuttle traffic, each to a Nanotrasen station. When questioned if anything is being developed on Caprice, Cynthia had this to say, "Caprice development is one of the many projects being tested by Project Peacekeeper. I cannot answer specifics as of yet I am afraid." Time will tell for certain what projects will arise from Project Peacekeeper, we at the Bugle will keep our readers up to date as the story develops.

  9. What do you think is the best way to approach uniqueness in synthetics? Is there a dichotomy? A balance between making a synthetic character relatable , and thus more human, or defining them by their inherent inhuman traits, making them stand out more as a species? Should there be standards? If so what should they be so as to not stifle the player? If not, why not?
  10. Drago hit the nail on the head on one of the major concerns currently with synthetics, and I believe they would be a wonderful person to have on the lore team. Saying this, Could you elaborate on the last few lore developments with synthetics, say in the last two months? What do you think those articles/events/arcs did wrong, or right?
  11. Could you perhaps elaborate in a constructive fashion? Just because albreyk is headmin doesn't mean everything he puts out is accepted as how things are. As it is, its a excellently planned event map. in my opinion.
  12. Political Deadlock, Nanotrasen Triumphant? The deadlock between Nanotrasen and the Zo'ra hive continues in Tau Ceti courts, the first and second circuit judges verdicts initially seem to be in Nanotrasens favor, with the Mega-corporation having already internally fined the hive. More worryingly, the blockade of Vaurca traffic continues, with the aliens remaining on Mars for the last few weeks finally running out of provisions that they have brought. Furthermore, it would seem a similar situation is playing out within the Empire of Dominia, with a contingent of Zo'ra trapped within their borders. Senator Thorne gave this briefing on the situation of the stranded Vaurca a recent public address. "My office has made every resource available to our visitors from Tau Ceti. We are in constant contact with officials of Zo'ra and Tau Ceti and are working to resolve the military and legal difficulties present in that system. In the meantime, it would seem that Nanotrasen has shown their hand again, blocking resupplies of the Vaurcan food, 'Kois' to our system, citing 'logistical' concerns for their reasoning. With no one else to turn to, my office has reached out to the people of the Jargon federation to supply us until the deadlock is resolved. For this reason, I want to introduce Jorgu Oori-Que, a representative of the Jargon Federation who has come here to help facilitate our needs. " Oori steps up at the introduction and replaces Thorne in front center. "The Jargon Federation, as of now, has reviewed the Martian’s [Senator Thorne’s], requests for dangerous xenobotanical supplies. Before proceeding, do understand that the Federation does view the dangerous subject of Kois just as seriously as those in Tau Ceti, and we will take every step required to ensure its safe delivery, storage, and rationed consumption. The urgency in this situation is that no one except the Federation can handle an outbreak of Kois, so I’ve sent the requests personally for arbitration within the Federation’s council, and will hear back soon." Insiders amongst Thornes staff clarified on a few issues that Oori touched on. They explain that smugglers may try to get kois into the system without the necessary precautions the Federation would take, possibly causing a quarantine that would not just freeze up Martian spacelanes with traffic, but a crucial trade route from Sol to Jargon as well. They conclude that the Vaurca upon Mars may have two or three weeks of supplies left before running out. Whether or not they can hold out is anyone’s guess, but the case between Zo’ra and Nanotrasen is expected to be appealed to the supreme court of Tau Ceti.
  13. It isn't. At the end of the day our opinions are just that. Mofo and boots will ultimately decide. Even then, a willingness to write and a vision could make you a deputy if nothing else. Stay in the race and share your ideas. People will certainly read and be inspired by them.
  14. You mention more of the mundane life of synthetics. I like that, but as always I will ask the same question and a personalized few. Can you walk me through a day in the life of a synthetic, 24 hours from start to finish? This is important, because barring big political/ideological and community groups, at the end of the day the average robot is what players will play and as a developer I feel it is our duty to paint a picture of the average [INSERT SPECIES HERE] detailed enough so that the players can finish it. If you can't imagine the process, then how can you expect players to? Personalized questions How do see synthetic narratives in our setting? Example: What do you think organizations like Purpose serve in the greater lore? What lore do you think the average player cares about when making a character?

If you can't imagine the process, then how can you expect players to? Two personalized questions. You mention the distinction of hardware and software synthetics. Can you explain this? Perhaps by giving an example of a software synthetic, and a hardware synthetic? Personally, I am critical of adding yet more sub-factions and different sub-species to synthetics. What do you plan to do with currently known synthetic organizations and lore? More over, I did not enjoy the development time with Autakh, it was perhaps one of the most tenuous moments of my time here on staff. If we are to continue to work on projects together, how do you believe this working relationship will change with the lore staff?
