One of my favorite mesh site ideas came from Ross Payton of RPPR. He came up with a kind of futuristic image board—think 4chan, but iiiiin spaaaaace! One of the associated boards was called /rip/, and was basically a place where dying people could go to post their last conscious thoughts. Since everyone’s brain is networked, you could theoretically use the mesh for a few minutes after you died, provided that your wetware and the associated transmitters remained intact.
that is creepy and awesome and hilarious (at least the not dead part)
……so reading large swaths of the Eclipse Phase main rule book is apparently a good way to have dreams about body switching secret agents kicking ass, taking names, snarking at each other, and becoming buddies
as well as brief inserts of role playing advice for your character from the “npcs” that are actually other players role-shifting as needed
you know I can get used to dreams with murder and torture and death that are implicitly understood to not be real
they beat the hell out of dreaming you are experiencing the real thing and not realizing otherwise until you wake up :/
I think it’s supposed to be one of many chatrooms scattered across the net.
That’s right, even in the far future we use text. Makes me wonder about Tumblr type sites in EP…
….and Mesh Tumblr is a scary thought o.O
sooooooo aether jabber=EP pesterchum???
weyrmacgreine reblogged your post okay mystery solved I do know them aft… and added:
I’m laughing a bit because this has happened to us how many times now?
I’M SORRY I’M HORRIBLE WITH NAMES
LET ME TELL YOU STORY ABOUT THIS
IN HIGH SCHOOL I WAS TELLING MY PSUDO-FRIENDS ABOUT SOMETHING COOL I WAS ABLE TO DO ON A PROJECT WITH ANOTHER STUDENT IN JUNIOR HIGH
AND THE FRIEND I WAS TALKING TO LOOKED STRAIGHT AT ME AND SAID “THAT WAS ME” AND IT TOOK ME 20 MINUTES OF HARD THINKING TO REALIZE THEY WERE RIGHT
I ALSO DIDN’T KNOW THE NAME MY CLASSMATES UNLESS THEY PISSED ME OFF OR SHARED A NAME WITH SOMEONE I KNEW FROM MY FAMILY
reblogging here because it’s applicable
if I don’t remember your name or get it wrong or attribute something to the wrong person
it’s not that I don’t care it’s that I suck at names and will need to be slapped in the face with them for a while before they stick in my brain
