Character Chats

Tsi’leik: huh, what? Oh. Hamal, just a tap on the shoulder would be nice, no need for summoning thunder. Bit of flair for the dramatic eh? :grin:

Takone:… Wow A bit sheepish Hello, everyone!

Talon: Oh hey! New people C: It’s nice to meet you all! Surprising population boom! We need to head back to the main thread and see what’s going on!

Second Doctor: Yes, there do seem to be quite a bit more than before. At least I don’t feel like I’m talking to myself anymore.

Morph: to Rhewin …Did you just step through a mirror or something?

Skaith: That’s what it says in his location bar.

Morph: Oh.

Aiden: to Tako How’s it been lately?

Morph: poke Why do I get the feeling that I’m just talking to myself?

Tsi’leik: practicing to be a pshycologist and how do you feel about that?

Morph: to Tsi’leik Like I’m not really there. I know it’s silly doctor, but sometimes I get to thinking that I’m just a figment of another person’s imagination. Do you have any idea why that might be? Am I going crazy doc? :tongue:

Mecha: eye twitches I’m feeling exhausted right now. I just stayed up till 2:00 am testing, modding, and calculating the maximum speed a Cybran ‘Zapper’ t2 Tactical Missile Defense system can handle before being overwhelmed. Mach 3 missiles are the best it can handle with it’s regular stats, but if its range is increased by a factor of 10 to compensate for the shortened weapon ranges employed for gameplay purposes, (as evidenced by dev comments and the physics engine’s gravity being 10x what it should be on Earth) then it can nail missiles moving at up to mach 19. Why did I take the trouble to do all this you might ask? Because of an online debate going on at another forum regarding whether or not a Cybran ACU could take on the combined militaries of modern day Earth. One of the posters was dubious as to the effectiveness of the TMD vs modern cruise missiles, as in-game it only ever shoots down sub-sonic missiles going at two-thirds the speed of sound. Totally pointless I know, right? :peek:

@Morph: Look deep inside yourself and you will find the answers. That’ll be $600.

Morph: 600 dollars?! I thought you Na’vi didn’t have any use for our currency. Here’s 600 puffy white tree seeds instead. :tongue:

Tsi’leik: Yes! Puffy trees!

Second Doctor: Where did you even get those seeds in the first place?

Morph: Somewhere where the air tasted kinda weird, and had lots of bioluminescent plants and animals. The gravity was a little lighter than what I’m used to too. The seeds were just floating in the breeze. If I didn’t know any better, I’d say they were doing their best to run away from me. :ebil: Skaith was nearby, admiring this -enormous- burning tree that had fallen to the ground.

Skaith: Who says I was admiring it? I was just contemplating how senseless it’s destruction was. Then I got hit in the torso by a miniature tree disguised as an arrow. :eh:

Tsi’leik: Let me think. youre saying you found them in a world where many of the plants and animals are bioluminescent, gravity is lighter, and there was a huge burning tree on the ground? with a possible internal staircase like spiral structure with convienient places to sleep in? Nope, never heard of it.

Third Doctor: I tend to avoid travel to that Pandora as its people don’t seem to care for outsiders.

Second Doctor: I’d say it’s because you got tired from all the running. A giant cat here, an arrow there…

Third Doctor: Well I wouldn’t have to run if it wasn’t for the little incident with you, the chief and his Ikran.

Morph: Surely they’d have forgotten all about it in the centuries since then right? …Or did you come back only a short time after Second was there?

Skaith: pokes giant arrow embedded in torso I think I’ll keep this as a souvenir. I hope the neurotoxin on the tip didn’t get wiped off all the way when it went through my chest.

Second Doctor: He hasn’t even tried! He’s been too busy being stuck on Earth.

Third Doctor: I say, Skaith, doesn’t that hurt?

Tsi’leik: Yes, you should probably see a doctor about that (points to second and third doctors). Youre lucky to be alive. After all, the arrows neurotoxins are supposed to stop your heart in 1 minute.

Me: Thank G-d I needent worry about cat people shootng spear sized arrows at me. Tsi’leik still has family in Home Tree and is friends with the chief. So I get the privalege of being treated like family.

Skaith: looks down at arrow Nope, it doesn’t hurt at all. :slight_smile: Think of Morph and I as organic T-1000’s with extremely high poison and chemical resistance. At the very worst end of the spectrum, physical attacks tend to just splatter us around the place until we can pull ourselves back together. (lesser trauma is healed near-instantaneously) Energy based weapons or high-heat explosions on the other hand are a whole different story, as they actually kill off our biomass rather than just rearranging it like physical attacks do. We try to avoid them whenever possible.

Morph: Is that why we try to avoid annoying Ves?

Vesper: nods Oh yes… :ebil: to Tsi’leik and Ninja So, you’re both friends with the chief?

Saichania: That certainly makes things easier. to the Third Doctor Yeah, why are you and your successors so fascinated by Earth and England in particular so much? I know the real-world reasons for it, but is there an in-universe answer as well?

Third Doctor: Well, Earth seems to be the center of quite a few things happening in the universe these days. And, what’s more, it’s exceptionally vulnerable.

Second Doctor: And even more relevant to him, his TARDIS is broken and he’s been exiled to Earth.

Me: And I’m not letting that little debate start up again, so let’ just drop the whole Who-got-exiled-when routine.

Third: Oh, very well. I also feel that humans have a lot more potential than they use. Sadly it gets wasted in bureaucracy and violence. I’ll also admit a slight bit of kinship to humans. Even if they are a tad primitive at times, I sometimes feel closer to them than my own race.

Second: Now there we can agree.

Tsi’leik: to vesper Yes it does make things easier for Ninja and I. My father saved the chiefs life, and I am good friends with him. they dont usually let outsiders into their borders, but because of my connections, they make an exeption for Ninja, although they dont let him anywhere near the tree of souls.
