Re: Trouble In P4RA-DI5E

Blake-G-LWW-10 Someone has summoned your group to a briefing area. It’s a busy place, and you’re called over to a loading zone with a bunch of big boxes. A woman your HUD identifies (in weird Underplex characters) as Yuna-B gives you a briefing: “You four expressed interest in helping us fix...

Re: Trouble In P4RA-DI5E

Blake-G-LWW-10 (Aftermath: September 23, 2019) You wake up in a strange body. You blink a couple of times, then remember that you were warned that you’d be a Brenda. As you climb out of the tube you realize that this is correct. Your HUD hardware displays everything in the complicated Underplex char...

Blake-O-LWW-9 You wake up to a fine of 100 XP points for leaving your TaxiPod parked in Sector EZA for another week. You meet Steve-O-FBB-3 again, this time over breakfast. “Hey there, Blake-O, it’s a good day to be drinking orange powder drink! Listen, I’m passing the word because there’s a surpris...

Re: Trouble In P4RA-DI5E

Blake-O-LWW-9 (Aftermath: September 16, 2019) When you return to Sector EAA your HUD directs you away from Barracks EAA-06 and toward quad EAA-33. Your room has two single beds, and shares a washroom with an identical orange room. Your post-mission interview is conducted by Sama-Y-GRA-4, your team’s...

Re: Trouble In P4RA-DI5E

Blake-LWW-7 Living in a barracks in your current state is surprisingly difficult, not to mention lacking all the little red luxuries you’d come to take for granted. Eventually you make it through your morning routine, finishing off a tiny breakfast in its entirety before your friend the Computer cal...

Re: Trouble In P4RA-DI5E

Blake-Y-LWW-6 You have regained five points of moxie. The only alarm that goes off in the morning is yours. There’s no one else struggling to dress in a confined space, and no one from an upper bunk messes up your bed after you’ve made it. Having your own room is amazing. The yellow door into the ca...

Re: Trouble In P4RA-DI5E

Blake-Y-LWW-6 (Aftermath: August 26, 2019) Returning to Sector EAA as a YELLOW clearance citizen was fun, but it was a little disconcerting to discover that your bed in dorm EAA-192 had already been reassigned. Your HUD led you to apartment hall EAA-Y03 where you found room twelve. It’s your own roo...

Blake-R-LWW-3 The big news since your mission with Troubleshooter Team EAA-09 is that your team supervisor, Ben-Y-EZJ-6, earned his fifth treason star and was declared a traitor. You saw his pictures up for a couple days, but they’ve stopped showing up on screens now. “Blake-R, report to troubleshoo...

Blake-R-LWW-2 (Intro August 19) You have regained five moxie points. In the time since you discovered the Brenda tubes, Friend Computer has declared all of the Brendas to be traitors to Alpha Complex. Many citizens have earned XP points by bringing them to justice, and the Brendas can perhaps be con...

Blake-R-LWW-1 Intro (August 5) You’ve enjoyed your time in Sector JMM, but when the Computer tells you you’re moving then you move. Your new dorm room is EAA-192.

Re: Doctor Who

I also quite liked it. The parallel between the dalek scrounging up Sheffield stuff to make its case and the Doctor making her sonic screwdriver made me happy.

Re: Doctor Who

So the issue with the Rani is that the Beeb doesn't have rights to her character. They have a related but separate issue with the daleks; they have the rights to use them as long as they appear at least once each season. (This is the main reason I suspect it's them we'll see on New Year's.)

Interesting.

I don't understand why it's never Susan. Has there been a rights issue, like with the Rani?
