Here you go!
Whoa, it must've taken quite a while to upload all that! Thanks, I'll try to... scavenge a mic from somewhere. My singing voice is rather similar to yours, so I'll either have to perma-falsetto or drop my (mezzo?)soprano to a contralto. orz
I really wish I could do the instrumental arrange; I have a pretty awesome flute, some percusion, a keyboard and both an electric and acoustic guitar, but I kinda had an accident last year that fucked up my wrist to the extent that I can't really play too much of anything anymore.
I would like to modify a weapon based on close-combat capability but pip is already modifying on assault capability so guess I'll fill the house with regular traps.
Once we're done with this house I think we should breach the warehouse to the North-West, warehouses tend to be easy to breach in my experience and they offer a lot more than houses but if people want to play it safe we could try the house to the North-East. That is when we're done with this house, I'm not suggesting breaching those locations as our first move.
I'm actually a (severely out of practice) soprano, so I can try if you need any higher parts sung.
And awww ;A; That's sad. :< I'd volunteer to help play something, but the only thing I can actually play is the piano, and not very well at that. We'll just have to make do. :(
Why did I have to miss all of this? ;_;
Also, I see Spar is living up to his reputation, absolutely.
Hahaha, I knew you had practice singing! I'll try my hand at it... hopefully not breaking down with laughter at the middle, and then see if I need some parts higher. And don't worry about the instruments. Even the shittiest... well, not really, but a half-decent track can be remastered into something good. Not that I have any recent practice, but hey, we can always try!
By the way, the percusion instrument I have... I don't know how to translate it's name, but it can be played with one hand. So if you for some reason need some tribal noise, I can do that too.
That is, if I manage to get a microphone. I shouldn't get that ahead of myself. *sigh*
I have a microphone, but I cannot sing at all. Oh, cruel irony!
You could make sound effects. Like snorting or clapping or screaming. If we are talking about zombies, I believe some screaming is in order.
I would've screamed and made all sorts of unholy noises except I didn't want to wake up the neighbours orz
I mostly don't want to have to explain what I'm doing if anyone asks.
"Why, I'm screaming into a microphone to a zombie parody of I Dreamed a Dream for my Internet friends, of course. What did you think I was doing?"
Belay that, I'll investigate the warehouse for the first turn.
As well, would it be possible to do something about my, ah... disagreeable personality? Perhaps spreading a rumor or something? I feel like another wardrobe incident might be coming on
"You guys hear about that goldfish?"
"Oh, the one that directed a movie?"
"Yeah, I heard it was outrageously popular with middle class gay men."
"What movie was that?"
"I dunno, but it stared these two alien robots. One was red and really sassy, the other was this big blue dude with an eyepatch."
As an aside, I used to think I was pretty hardcore for buying Lego sets specifically for pieces I wanted to use to recreate scenes in this LP, but Ana and DK's song completely blew that out of the water.
Hasbro, get on this.
Spreading a rumor seems like a good idea.
Meanwhile, Dist will investigate the Factory because he's useless at everything. orz
We should have at least one person search the location, clues are found in the first hour of searching and we could use what supplies we can get at the start.
I feel I should just go ahead and mention here that I've finally found time to watch Prime; currently on episode two of season two. Knockout's sassy snarkiness is indeed amusing and endearing, he doesn't show up enough for my tastes. My irrational bias for Soundwave is probably acting up again though, because he's just. Ahahahaha. He's such a creepy creeper. But he's a LOYAL creepy creeper! And it's kinda hilarious and adorable. And he *did* totally kick Blackarachnia I mean Airachnid to the curb, which I appreciate, because she annoys me for some inexplicable deep-down personality-conflict reason. So yeah I just want to see more of Soundwave all the time because somehow, the more he frightens me, the more entertaining he is. That... normally doesn't happen. Yeah. I think I'm biased. But Prime is cool overall, really. ( ouo)b Thanks for the recommendation.
EDIT: Also on the subject of my own weird emotional foibles, can I just say that I think the little Decepticon drones/mooks/whatever are just adorable? Like, their voices are so likable, and they're just y'know. Always there chillin' in the background, having kinda cool designs. Y'know. ... I think I pay too much attention to background characters.
Woah, I'm way late to congratulate the last group on succeeding, aren't I? Well congratulations! Good to see at least one group can make it through without the save-file meeting an untimely end the world suddenly crumpling in on itself. Couldn't have happened to a nicer bunch. :3
Personally, out of this current group, I am most attached to the goldfish in a lightbulb. Clearly he must have some serious skills, getting past all those various handicaps to become a police officer! You go, little Song. You go and be a shining example to us all.
I was just thinking, what country is Zafehouse meant to take place in? I initially tought these were rural US towns on account on how easily guns are found in houses. But what small US town also has cricket bats in ready supply??
They're Shaun of The Dead Collector Cricket Bats.
Unsold stock from the big ComicCon in 2005.
Isn't Song searching?
Oh, he is, my mistake.
I know Ana generally adviced in early runs you should try to not split up when searching the first hour because of rescue clue relationship boosts.
Bah, what the hell do I know, I killed 9 random racists.
Just tell them you're doing the Hunting of the Snark. Do I only know this exists because Philip Quast was in the musical version at one point? YES.
Oh, Ana is the hardcore one. Each lyric takes me maybe ½ hour unless I get stuck, and it's written directly into the browser. It's surprisingly easy to work from what Herbert Kretzmer/Tim Rice left there.
The factory and the warehouse are close enough so that we can make the trip and back within the hour so the relationship boost should still apply if we find a clue because we were still at that location for that turn.
Also, I really hate factories.
This confirms what I suspected: We were CRAZY lucky in that Roadkill run.
(But then, I understand that's part of why criminals are so scared of Javert, the guy is supposedly blessed with insanely good fortune where death is concerned.)
There was a hunting of the snark musical?! With Philip Quast?! I can die happy now, my life is complete.
Confirming all actions for main LP.
Songbird/Song wants to search.
CuteCat/Pipsqueak wants to modify for assault.
Sharp Whiskey/Caoimhe wants to trap, and then breach preferably the NW warehouse, but will do the NE house if the other survivors prefer that.
Shelby Darlene/Amanohashi wants to investigate the police station.
vayaviya/Dist wants to investigate the factory.
We're also spreading a rumour. I'm using the one Snark suggested because none of the survivors submitted one. So Song has now become a director who directed a movie that was outrageously popular amongst middle-class gay young men (sexual orientation isn't available for this rumour).
Update coming shortly.
Fair enough, so long as Knockout and Breakdown still starred in it.
Well, that rumour could've gone worse. What with two survivors prejudiced against the middle-class, I was afraid that we'd get a Round1-style fiasco where hate-pairs form and furniture starts flying on the very first turn.
As it stands, our relationships are... better, but still kinda bad overall.
Our investigation results. Sure you don't want to do a Turn 2 police station breach? It's not too late, you know... :D (<- FYI I'm not breaking my no-advice rule because this is NOT good advice.)
Next turn, should we breach the NW warehouse or the NE house, as Sharp Whiskey suggested? Or maybe both? Or would you like to do something else entirely?
It's going to be really interesting when if this group of survivors escape and make it to Montreilsurmer where Knockout and Breakdown will be. XD
Wikisnippet: "In 1990 The Hunting Of The Snark was successfully presented, again by Batt, as a dramatised concert in Australia, at Sydney's State Theatre with the Elizabethan Symphonia, and Philip Quast starring as the Bellman."
Hooo, a new round! I'm sure it will all be fine barring concussions!
Man, how emotionally and intellectually dead do you have be to be indifferent upon learning a fucking fish directed a movie???
Amanohashi's moustache doesn't exactly speak of a man who stays in touch with the real world, does it?
Well, maybe they just really, really hated the movie. Gay robots might not be everyone's thing, you know? :D
I guess it's even less calling for a reaction when you've gotten over said fish being a policeman.
Waiiiiit a second.
Enjolras? Is that you?
You're the best.
Now might be a good time to mention that in aforementioned Arm Joe, Marius' special ability attack (like Enjolras' being dropping barricades on people) is summoning a zombie army of his dead friends, incidently.
You must tell me all of these. Does Cosette smother people with expensive dresses? Does Eponine kill people with ANGST? What about Robo-Jean?
And, most importantly, how can I play this game?
How can anyone be indifferent to, or even worse, hate gay robots? What's not to like about that?
