    Prison of the mind (group for Q&A)

    Post  Chris on Wed Jun 14, 2017 4:51 pm

    You can feel your body compress and be stretched like spaghetti.  At one point, you are literally spanning millions of light years as you get pulled into the singularity of the black hole....  




    You then find yourself floating, alone.  You cannot see the other party members, nor any companions you brought with you.  You are singular.  You are no longer Argul\Brick\Korvaq\Zang.  You are like a dreamer and your life as the character was but a dream.  You can remember that life, but feel less attached to it than a moment ago.

    You can see a man.  He is bound in some device.  He is a prisoner.  You are the prisoner and the observer at the same time.   Rasso has control of the machine.



    You are at the singularity of the black hole.  Inside a black hole, TIME becomes a physical dimension, just like space.  There are 4 quadrants:  on the LEFT are Parallel Universes (or the interior universes), on the RIGHT the External Universes (where you just came from on the battle map), on the TOP are the future timelines and on the BOTTOM are your past timelines.  

    study This is a general map to the interior of the black hole.  This explains what each area represents  study



    The prisoner (you) are located at the "point of consciousness" in the center, the exact center of the singularity.  The background looks like both brain synapses and deep space.  In the far upper right corner, you see the "paradise" that the cosmic mother showed you before the final battle.

    This is what the actual inside of the black hole looks like:





    Just for clarity, as I know this is a LOT to take in all at once:

    LEFT - parallel universes or interior universes are represented by and populated with characters from many of our recent games
    RIGHT - the battle map, from this game, the exterior of the black hole in 'real space'
    BOTTOM - the past, a sequence of events from your homeworlds to the bridge, to the fear of needles, to the space station, to the queen fight
    CENTER - you, the prisoner in the machine and Rasso is controlling the machine
    TOP - a map of possible futures, most of which are full of Necrons, wastelands and dead planets.  There is 1 possible future left with life and happiness.  It is the "paradise" revealed by the golden light of the Cosmic Mother.  It is the house on the beach, with the woman and the children from the vision.


    You will each go to your own specific thread to finish the story.  Please ask questions here, so that everyone in the group sees both the question and the answer.  Please try to avoid, "can I shoot Rasso?"  types of questions.  Those are specific actions, which you can try in your private thread.  Please do not read the other threads until everyone has finished.

    Think about questions like:  
    Q: "What is that yellow stuff around the border?"
    A: that is the Golden Dust

    Q: "If I am not Argul\Brick\Korvaq\Zang, what abilities do I have?
    A:  You will have to figure that out for yourself as you go

    Q: "But what dice do I roll?"
    A:  This will likely (but not absolutely) be a dice-less and narrative scene

    Q: "But what the hell am I supposed to do here??"
    A:  hmm.... good question scratch

    Q: "Seriously, WHAT THE HELL AM I SUPPOSED TO DO HERE??"
    A:  free yourself (the prisoner)  using everything on the map at your disposal + your imagination to find a way to escape the Prison of the Mind.

    Seriously though, well done, you've obviously put a lot of thought into this. This should be interesting!

    Hey Party Members - Kudos for the ass-whoopin' we just delivered in the battlemap!

    Can Rasso be seen as a separate and distinct entity?

    Yes - by the Observer for sure. the Observer can see the entire map as shown.

    Maybe - by the man in the machine. Nobody has tried to look around as the prisoner yet

    friendly reminder, for your own enjoyment, please DO NOT read each other's threads. You are all progressing at very different paces and it would spoil the story for you

    cheers congratulations Alan! Brick has escaped the Prison of the Mind

    Alan is still working on the bonus objective - "heal thyself"

    Matt also completed "heal thyself" successfully + escape (main objective)


    They followed 2 VERY different paths.

    and another shout out to Josh! cheers

    Krovaq has escaped the Prison of the Mind and healed himself as well.

    Josh followed a very different path as well and used items on the map in a unique way.


    Josh, Matt and Alan can feel free to read each other's private threads now, just to see how the others solved the same problems

    Thanks to the amazing players in this game!

    special kudos in particular to Alan as Brick Rockman. That was some of the best roleplaying I have ever witnessed!
