Prospit (Moon and Planet)

Post by infinityAlternator on Wed May 06, 2015 7:10 pm

This is a place for actions on Prospit. Link to the post in which you fell asleep, were revived, or flew to Prospit.

Edit: I'm separating Prospit and Derse. I decided to do separate threads for each planet.

From IA: Get ready for bed

IA: Collect evidence

You wake up ready to get to work. Although you have a few things to check in the library, most of your night is free for collecting evidence of Prospit for the other players. You get up, grab the camera you left out for yourself, and jump right out your window. Footage of your own room would be the easiest to fake and, therefore, is the least convincing. You turn on the camera and begin narrating.

Show Transcriptlog:

-- infinityAlternator [IA] began narrating the video at XX:XX --

IA: Hello fellow... players? I’m guessing that... by the time you get this... you will have already entered the game. As a result... this video is more about introducing you to the bright world of Prospit and it’s darker twin... Derse.
IA: Prospit is my planet. It’s a land of kind-hearted people. Prospit lives in the light of an accepting and incredible acceptance. Children play in the streets on public chessboards. Although many dream of joining the military... most would rather not do that.
IA: Prospit is ruled by a monarchy colloquially called the “White King” and “White Queen”. The queen controls the planet and moon. She is incredibly receptive to the ideas of the heroes (that’s us). According to lore... this is because we are essentially the only chance that Prospit has to survive the coming war. I remember the king as a stern man...but I was seven last time I saw him. At the time... most adults were “stern”. Since then... he has been at war with the king of Derse. Their war was something like a 3x3 grid game of chess with only Kings. It was endless and pointless. Neither could lose except by conceding.
IA: Fortunately or unfortunately... that all changed when CL entered the game. Each time one of us enters the game with a prototyped sprite... the war becomes more advanced. The first prototyping caused the game to become a full fledged game of chess. The two kings are relatively slow players... but they are near the level of chess grandmasters. They have been training since their early childhood and both are impossible to beat in a standard game of chess.
IA: Considering this trend... it is likely that the later forms are similar to the “advanced” chess format’s the Eiko and I play. The cube form seems like the most likely next step... but I have no idea what the last two forms will be. That kind of information is hidden from me. However...there is a lot of information that I do have. Some of it comes from the room of my fellow Prospit dreamer. Their room gives me a lot of information on their basic personality traits. Based on this... I believe I have not yet talked to this player...
IA: Here we are. This is what a dream tower looks like. Most of it is just stairs... although there are a few areas that mirror rooms that are important to the hero. Most importantly... that bulb at top contains the players room. Any object in the original room is duplicated here... but that duplication only lasts as long as the object is in the room. Once you remove an object from your dream room... it will suddenly vanish in your regular room. As a result of this mirroring trick... it is highly suggested that you explain this to your guardians or lock your door to avoid confusing or scaring them. I think it is best not to show another person’s room... but I will show my own room for an example later.
IA: Anyways... I am going to start flying a bit quicker now. I have finished the opening narration section. This is the way to the chain that connects the moon of Prospit to the planet. It’s on the other side of the moon... so it’ll take a bit...
IA: ...
IA: ...
IA: ...
IA: ...
IA: ...
IA: ...
IA: ...
IA: ...
IA: ...
IA: ...
IA: ...
IA: ...
IA: So... yeah... flying is cool. It’s not nearly as useful in a world as well planned out and small as this one...but it does let you get places faster. Also...the Prospitians love it. Some things that are relatively difficult for them are easy for us since we can fly. Do those things... and basically any citizen will help you out when you need it. This does work so well on Derse... sorry CT and TC... but the same principles apply. You can fly; use it effectively.
IA: ...
IA: ...
IA: ...
IA: OK. We are here. As you can see... there is a giant gold chain that connects Prospit’s moon to Prospit. If you want to meet the queen or go to the library or do anything of importance...that is the place to go. It also has a halfway decent training ground for practicing your fighting. I wouldn’t recommend using their training manuals or listening much to their instructors though. Prospitians are not a war-like people... and their fighting is more similar to stage fighting than a martial art.
IA: From here... you can see the location of the castle. The training ground it right next to it. The library is on the opposite side of the planet from the moon. Getting to the planet would be far too long for a single night’s trip if I flew... Luckily... there is another way to get there. Within the dream towers... there are some pads called Trasportalizers that allow us to teleport from our towers to the castle and back. I’m not sure if the Dersite Queen has provided our Derse heroes with the same amenities. However... it is extremely likely that there is at least one Transportalizer on Derse’s moon that connects back to the castle. The Black Queen isn’t known for wasting time. Back to Prospit... there are large networks of Transportalizers connecting various parts of the planet together...most importantly... the innermost parts of the castle of the White Queen (and presumably the Derse equivalent as well) cannot be entered without the use of Transportalizers for security reasons.This makes the castle a natural hub for those who use the Transportalizer Network.
IA: We’re nearly back at my tower now. I’ll show you my room... as well as the way to use the transportalizer.
IA: This is the window. There is an identical window to this one on the other side of the room. The windows are added regardless of the placement of window in your original room... although they seem to be stylized to match your room. The easiest way for us to enter our and each other’s rooms is through these windows.
IA: Through the window... you can see an exact replica of my room. You can see where the blankets are lifted by my real world body sleeping underneath them. You can see my desk and computer stuff. The stuff in the corner is a mix of staffs and various cylindrical objects. I have been trying to switch my weapon type from staffkind to cylinderkind for a while now. The shelf if filled with books...mostly nonfiction...which I have read. The fiction books are kept elsewhere on the boat. The door does lead to the stairs and it is in the same place as the actual door. The computer retains its connection to the Internet...somehow...although that does not help me much. Your room on Prospit or Derse is just as much your room as your room in your house.
IA: Anyways... I have to go for today. I have some personal stuff to do. I will try to get this video done tomorrow night.

You spend the rest of the night researching the game and getting ready. You cannot seem to figure out this CT character. She does not match the description of any of the players in your notes. You also have some interesting information coming to light after Eiko entered that you have to record.

Continue to IA: Recruit new hero

From IA: Recruit new hero

IA: Complete proof

You wake up in your room again. Your camera is next to your bed. You pick it up and begin recording.

”Show Transcriptlog”:

infinityAlternator [IA] began narrating the video at XX:XX --

IA: OK. I am back. For reference to the rest of you...I have just talked to both Eiko and...TC. I am going to show you some of the important locations on the main planet of Prospit. A lot of this does not apply to Derse. The castle is said to be much more dangerous and generally a bad place to go. There is not public library at all that I know of. It is a more dangerous place filled with shadow and uncertainty...
IA: Anyways...the way to Prospit proper is actually through the tower.
IA: Go through the door... There is the curve surface of the outside of the tower. You have to slide down the surface to reach the first platform. This platform has the transportalizer to the castle and the stairs to the other rooms. I rarely use the lower floors... but this platform is an absolute necessity. Here we go...
IA: And this is the castle. I’m going to set down the camera for a little bit to talk to the guards.
IA: ...
IA: ...
IA: ...
IA: OK. We’re good. This is where you go to talk to the White Queen. You can also talk to military people and go to the training grounds from here. The Transportalizers for traveling around the planet...including the library...are through that door. We will go through there.
IA: The transportalizers are relatively high security in the castle...but nearly no one else cares much. The library is through here. The library has some transportalizers to research facilities and schools and such. It is my second favorite place on Prospit...after my room.
IA: Excuse me? Could I go through to the library please?
transportalizerGuard0297 [TG] joined the video at XX:XX --
TG: Sure. Just this way. What is that you’re holding?
IA: It is a camera. I am making an introductory video for the other heroes. We started Sburb two days ago. I want everyone to be ready when they wake up so that we can stop the reckoning as quickly as possible. We have not seen much damage on our home planet yet... so we are hoping we somehow stop the reckoning or cut it short before it overwhelms the portals. I figured I could do my part to make sure that loop works out the way we want it to.
TG: I see. That sounds good to me. You know we’re all relying on you. Actually, are you coming back before my shift ends?
IA: I should be. Do you want a particular book?
TG: Yeah. Could you drop off this book and pick up the next one?
IA: Sure. I should be back in an hour or so. I only have enough time to take some quick video and scan some important documents. It is not one of my normal six hour visits... so you don’t have to worry about me forgetting to return in time.
TG: OK. Thanks! The Transportalizer is right there.
IA: Thanks!
IA: So... this is the library. It is a really cool place with lots of great books. Unfortunately... I don’t have time to show you everything. There are a few books I need to show you and a few books I have to check out. This section has books about us. It is the place to go when you need to know more about the game. I am grabbing a book about our lands to get some information. This game is a game of riddles. Every piece of information might help us: a map...a clue about the quests...grist related information...anything. There is a book in here that details a method that heroes can use to revive each other in case of death. I’ll try to scan them... but for now I’ll open up the book and read the important parts out loud.
IA: ...Hmmm...
IA: Here!
IA: ...And the other...
IA: ...It should be here...
IA: Here we go. Let me see. This is a generally good manual for you to look at. It is called “The Mechanics of the Heroes: Potential Uses?” and it lists out a lot of clever ways to use our powers. It is also a good way to know about the powers you could potentially have.
IA: Anyways...this is the section I was talking about. There something here about some crypts on the two dream planets that are connected to beds on our lands. It says that we can revive ourselves if we die through the body we use while we dream using this bed somehow. It seems like the author did not know how that would work. It is phrased with all sorts of qualifiers. Stuff like “It seems possible that dying on one bed will channel your consciousness to the hero’s dream body, allowing the hero to survive otherwise deadly wounds. It is not clear how this would happen or what it would mean for the hero, but it is possible that the process will either hurt the hero or allow the hero to grow.” It is not very confidence inspiring.
IA: On the other hand...there is a revival method that the author seems much more confident about. It is a little more difficult...you need at least two heroes in the same place. Depending on the wounds...there is anywhere between seconds to hours during which the ritual can be completed. The ritual itself is called a Kiss-Revival. The illustrations make it seem like some kind of face smashing thing. The living hero takes the body of the dead hero and pulls the face toward his or her own. He or she then places his lips on the lips of the other hero. It is important to tilt the face slightly to avoid hurting or breaking either person’s nose in haste.
IA: It is a bit situational...and I would prefer if we did not die at all. Just keep in mind the possibilities for revival. If you think you are dying...pester everyone and try to get to the bed. If anyone does die...I would prefer that they did it in a way that caused them to un-die as quickly as possible.
IA: That is all on that matter.
IA: I have to get a few other books...but you probably do not care about those. At this point...just look at the scans I have included with this video. I do not know what I will send. I might send some pages of books... I might send some notes... I am not sure.
IA: Anyways...I wanted to end this video with some general talking. I hope you can see me. My name is Amit Kineta. I have not met two of you before...but I have read all about you...hopefully. I hope you are all actually players. Anyways...
IA: To the two players I do not know yet...I have good reason to believe that we will do well at this game. Know that...unless your problems are social...I will likely be able to help whenever you need it. I have significantly greater familiarity with this game as a result of dreaming on Prospit for so long. This game is built to challenge you. We will be losing the whole world. This will be much more significant for you than for me. However...let me reassure you. This game must be played and we must be the ones who played it. The fact that we are being forced into this game does not mean we cannot grow and improve and make the most of this game. We have that choice. I am just hoping that you are all prepared to do this as painlessly and effectively as possible.


You shut off the camera. It should be simple to send this to both CL and TC since they have given you coordinates. You load the video onto three flash drives, one from CL, one for TC, and one for PS. You walk over to your transportalizer. Just like Dev has shown you, you input the coordinates of CL and send her a flash drive. You do the same for TC. Without coordinates for PS, you can't send him his flash drive. Knowing that your work is done, you return to rest. You are expecting to start any day now, and you wouldn't want to be tired going in.

Continue to IA: Respond to memo.

IA: Distribute Proof

You wake up on Prospit. You only have time for a short night’s sleep this time. You grab the last of the three flash drives and send it through the transportalizer. It disappears in a puff of ruby red fire. You gave little else to do, you decide to see if you can get audience with the White Queen. It’s been awhile, since you’ve been prepping for the game, but the Queen tends to be very accommodating when you need to speak.

You go to her castle and put your name into the system. You sit in the waiting room, reading a newspaper you found on one of the chairs. Today’s news is, of course, mostly useless to you. It’ll give you nothing more than some fodder for small talk. What you are really looking for is some sign up information. You are going to want to know the news once the war starts.

After a bit of reading and a lot of resting, your name is finally called. You check the clock. It’s only been two hours, not long at all for a meeting with the Queen of an entire planet.

”Show Dreamlog”:

WQ: It’s been awhile since we’ve talked. What’s happened?
IA: The game is beginning. So far...one person has entered the game. You should have noticed that your ring gives you snake-like features now...
WQ: Oh? I haven’t used the ring in quite a while. Does this mean Skaia has evolved?
IA: Yes...
IA: Have you been in contact with WK at all in the past few weeks?
WQ: No. It’s been a couple of days since he’s sent anything. I didn’t think it was that weird. When the Black King starts jumping around the board he usually goes silent for a week or more at a time.
IA: I see... I would guess that he has been tied up by the sudden start of the war. Sorry for not warning you ahead of time.
WQ: It’s fine. I guess we have to prepare for that. Thanks for letting me know. Is there anything else?
IA: A couple things. Expect the other three prototypings in quick succession. Our current plan is to do all three within seconds of each other. Also... since everyone is entering the game... the other heroes will probably start waking up soon.
WQ: OK. I’ll keep that in mind. That’s all?
IA: Yes. If you do not have any questions... I would like to return to my tower as soon as possible.
WQ: I have no questions. You may go.
IA: Thank you.

You return to your tower. You take a moment to make sure you have nothing else to do. Then, you go to sleep.
