(02:28)Pancomputer: Welcome, SonjaOfTheMoon! You resisted for a little under two (2) hours.
(02:28)Pancomputer: That puts you in the bottom twelve (12) percent of abductees! Well done!

19 Aug 2083 (Yesterday)
(16:12)silentconspirator: Good morning (or whenever), Sonja! I hope you find your accommodations to your liking, since with any luck, you'll be here for a while. My name's Matilda (call me Mattie), and I'll be your jailer during your stay here.
(16:12)silentconspirator: We've already gotten your AI slaved to our system, so that's taken care of. Don't worry, we haven't broken anything (but we've taken your backups too, just in case). It will be uploaded to this system juuuuuust as soon as we're sure it can't stab us in the back too much. You'll need it during this upcoming exercise - if nothing else, it will help keep you sane with no one to talk to. Anyway! Enough pleasantries; let's get down to business.
(16:14)silentconspirator: If you look in your home directory, you'll find an @hena library. It has some... interesting vacuum perturbation capabilities - you know all about those, according to your chat logs, so I won't waste your time telling you things you already know - and Eugene thinks you're the secret to cracking them.
(16:14)silentconspirator: Your task is to break out of this cell. :) Man pages, server space, and caffeinated beverages are available at your request, but I'm afraid actual food is contingent on you escaping. How's that for motivation?

SansTheComic: holy crap i think athena is etamnanki

Arbiter: "You have 1 new message and 0 new messages. Displaying message one (1) of three (3)..." How many messages? Zero, one, or three? Either imprisonment has messed with Sonja's head enough to affect her ability to process numbers, or this section needs to be revised. edit delete reply
SansTheComic: fairly certain this is etamnanki being etamnanki. edit delete reply
Xenocartographer: That should be "zero old messages" :/ but one vs. three is something else (though pretty mundane) - it'll become clear soon. edit delete reply
Arbiter: I'm terrified by the fact that Pancake has apparently kidnapped enough people that he requires at least seven holding cells and he's been able to collect statistics about how long they resist authenticating. edit delete reply
Seabiscuit: "(02:28)Pancomputer: That puts you in the bottom twelve (12) percent of abductees! Well done!"
"(02:30)Pancomputer: Yes you do."


-snerk-... Did Silent write these lines? They seem a bit too positive for Pancake~


I really adore how MrE's hallucinations were written in comic form somehow, and the 'Russian' dialogue is hysterical~~ Is one of them who Vampire hijacked? Were there other survivors?:c edit delete reply
Wildcat2: /message SonjaOfTheMoon Can you hear me? edit delete reply
Wildcat2: If I ever use a third Variation on "wildcat" and it isn't yellow adjacent I'm going to be very disappointed.
Anyway, if that doesn't work I want to try this:
/connect holding-cell-07.private.the-gridle.orbit
/message SonjaOfTheMoon Can you hear me? edit delete reply
Seabiscuit: Ohh, I hope this works. I wonder if Sonja remembers that little PM?~ Well, she has plenty of quiet time by herself to think.;) edit delete reply
Seabiscuit: Ohohoh! Theo needs an "I told ya so" too! edit delete reply
Arbiter: /message OITHEOI Congratulations on your successful kidnapping op, you blue [censored]hole.
/message OITHEOI You got an achievement: Abduct an Old Man!
/message OITHEOI What is he to you? A bargaining chip? A trophy? Revenge? Or do you just want him to owe you a favour for "rescuing" him?
/message OITHEOI Or did you just want to play musical hostages with your buddy Pancake?
/message OITHEOI I mean, that must have been your plan, right, since you knew he was on the moon? Arrange some sort of sick trade, orange for purple?
/message OITHEOI Of course orange guys don't exactly have the longest lifespan when Eugene's involved, but that probably doesn't matter to a sick [censored] like you either, does it?
/message OITHEOI One little problem with that plan though, MrE doesn't have a nifty little AI on his computer, so looks like it's not quite a fair trade.
/message OITHEOI So great job, genius, now he's got two. Yeah, that's right, he still has the other one from before that you didn't believe me about.
/message OITHEOI But don't feel too bad about it. At least you succeeded in kidnapping some poor girl's father.
/message OITHEOI Why don't you brag to your friends Sonja and bloodshoes about how cool you are?
/message OITHEOI Or better yet, why don't you brag to Karl! Tell him everything. You've certainly had no problem doing that so far!
/message OITHEOI Then when you've done all that, go [censored] yourself. Perfect way to end the day. edit delete reply
Seabiscuit: -SNERK-
50/10 did not disappoint

"/message OITHEOI Or did you just want to play musical hostages with your buddy Pancake?"


Best part~~ Oh! He probably doesn't know about Bloodshoes dying, let him know this too~~~~ ;) edit delete reply
Arbiter: "Orange guys don't exactly have the longest lifespan when Eugene's involved"
"Why don't you brag to your friends Sonja and bloodshoes about it?"
Let's see if he figures it out himself. My guess is "no". And then when he does find out, he'll feel dumb for missing my hints. ;)

Holy crap that sounded evil. O_O edit delete reply
((Delta)): I will alert the others.

/message --by-alias="The Judge" Perhaps I am being too generous with this.
/message --by-alias="The Cavalry" Maybe this is too much to share so soon.
/message --by-alias="The Autumn" I just can't help but give more puzzles.
/message --by-alias="The Navigator" -but you'd know all about that wouldn't you?

edit delete reply
((Delta)): /message --by-alias="The Inquisitor", --by-alias="The Templar" Why do you remain silent to me? Respond!

/status away; mood Awaiting-Response edit delete reply
