  • Ingrid: Maybe when they were kids XD

  • Alyss: Phoebe wouldn't want Vaness to feel bad either, though, or dress up as something she really, really would rather not wear. Rapunzel and Sleeping Beauty have pretty dresses, so she'd be perfectly happy going as one of them. ^_^ (And the puppy dog eyes may end up on Roi to go as Flynn. XD)
    October 17, 2014, 01:04:57 PM
  • Alyss: She does - complete with a little bottom lip wibble. ^^;
    October 17, 2014, 12:59:37 PM
  • Ingrid: I bet Phoebe has the best puppy eyes
    October 17, 2014, 10:40:58 AM
  • Ingrid: Oh no ;_; Now Vaness feels bad
    October 17, 2014, 10:40:49 AM
  • Alyss: Phoebe would probably go as Rapunzel or Sleeping Beauty since they are both "hidden" princesses like her. (But only because Vaness probably won't go as Elsa to her Anna. XD)
    October 17, 2014, 10:35:10 AM
  • Brenna: Phia will dress as a butterfly, because its the last thing anyone will see coming out of the world's biggest tomboy.
    October 14, 2014, 10:54:38 PM
  • Brenna: Doc Lamya would go as the Ghost of Breakfasts Yet To Come, with a bacon and eggs print shroud.
    October 14, 2014, 10:53:31 PM
  • Ru: That is so awesome.  :D
    October 14, 2014, 06:06:48 PM
  • Pixie: Kivan would go as Liberace XD
    October 14, 2014, 05:50:22 AM
  • Ru: Kit I think might be a total geek and dress up as some historical figure her dad taught her about.  And then be a little confused that no one knows who she is.
    October 13, 2014, 06:52:34 PM
  • Ru: Hmm, I think Seren might go as a zombie, just to confuse the hell out of people.  She'd play it totally straight, and people would STILL find her attractive.
    October 13, 2014, 06:50:57 PM
  • Ingrid: Vaness goes as Flame Princess because of all the Elsa jokes
    October 13, 2014, 01:51:42 PM
  • Pixie: Pwyll would perversely go as his sister XD
    October 13, 2014, 07:05:13 AM
  • Brenna: Autumn Question Times! Cast Masquerade/Trick or Treating! What/Who/When is your character going as?
    October 11, 2014, 08:50:34 AM
  • Ru: Excellent, okay!  <3
    October 06, 2014, 06:36:01 PM
  • Brenna: Triso probably did. Seraita wasn't strong enough to swim, so she mostly waded.
    October 01, 2014, 01:59:40 PM
  • Ru: HEY so just a little question - for those of you with Lost Kids, do your kids know how to swim?
    September 25, 2014, 06:10:07 PM
  • Ingrid: Thank you <3
    September 23, 2014, 09:33:18 AM

  • Brenna: Oh, how luscious!
    September 17, 2014, 04:28:14 PM
  • Alyss: Please do! :)
    September 15, 2014, 01:47:31 PM
  • Ingrid: Okay, mind if I improvise?
    September 15, 2014, 01:46:04 PM
  • Alyss: And I've been trying to find a good flower for Phoebe. I've come up with a few (white rose, lily of the valley, magnolia, etc), but haven't settled on one yet.
    September 15, 2014, 01:02:17 PM
  • Alyss: Pretty! :)
    September 15, 2014, 01:00:15 PM

    September 15, 2014, 11:57:55 AM
  • Ingrid: Does Phoebe have a specific symbolic flower?
    September 15, 2014, 10:50:03 AM
  • Ingrid: Thank you :D
    September 14, 2014, 08:07:45 PM
  • Alyss: Yay for Ingrid arts! <3 They are awesome! ^^ <3
    September 14, 2014, 05:14:20 PM

    September 14, 2014, 08:41:51 AM
  • Pixie: OMG those are awesome! <3
    September 14, 2014, 06:07:41 AM
  • Ru: And Daki is all sorts of gorgeous, and I love her hidey bangs.

THE FUTURE!
« on: April 28, 2013, 05:56:06 PM »
I thought it would be excellent to have a conversation centered specifically around all of the futuristic tech and advances in science and medicine here on the forums. 

The great thing about discussing this is that the game covers so many planets, moons, and space colonies that pretty much every single idea thrown out there could be applied somewhere.  For example, with energy, there may be planets that run 100% efficiently on sunlight, while maybe there is another using advanced fusion technology, or another depending on use of a mineral (like Orihimite), or yet another gaining energy from microscopic hamsters running around quark-tech wheels. 

I am personally interested in seeing a few of Nikola Tesla's inventions being used as actual technology in Vega.  I certainly like to think that the earthquake machine is around and is used regularly to aid in terraforming and tearing down ancient Vegan cities, for one.  Another I'm excited about was his patent for wirelessly transmitted energy (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Wireless_Transmission_of_Electricity), so there may be a tower in the middle of the city transmitting energy that runs the whole place.  I like to think, if not running a whole city, that they may be used specifically to power Coppelia, so they don't have to plug themselves into a wall socket when they are low on energy, and Coppelia out on spy duty in the field can better keep up their ruse. 

Also, I really really love planet elevators, and think that they are probably really handy for merchants and pirates.   It probably still costs a pretty penny to expend enough fuel to leave the orbit of the planet, and so planet elevators in orbit above the planet and with a connection to the surface would be much more energy-efficient for many people. 

What other things were people interested in?

Re: The Cradle, where Coppelias have to go every so often for maintenance.  Is there just one in the whole solar system, one per planet, one per garrison, or are we even holding on to that concept?

I'm mostly interested in the low-tech high-tech, if that makes any sense.  Stuff like wind cars, things built from living trees.. but also leftover bits of cunning from the first-gen settlers which have been kicked into the shadows by the current regime.   8)

I am totally still on for the Cradles :D  Not sure how common they should be - one per district/city/county sounds right to me?  I imagine they are kept a bit secret, so hackers aren't tempted to ruin the Coppelia.
