9:54 AM | DrHorrible | I can tell you what Etamnanki is.

9:54 AM | TA_DAIMONIA | Pancake's wunderweapon? What do you know?

9:55 AM | DrHorrible | I don't actually know what it is.

9:55 AM | DrHorrible | But I'm about to.

9:57 AM | DrHorrible | This is going to sound crazy.

9:58 AM | TA_DAIMONIA | If it can help us beat Pancake, it's worth saying.

9:59 AM | BULWARK | Bro?

/message BULWARK How is he?

10:00 AM | Incoming PM from BULWARK | I'm not sure. He's sitting really still... could be having a vision.

10:00 AM | DrHorrible | Gaia is real.

10:01 AM | DrHorrible | I guess that's why I keep having these dreams.

10:02 AM | TA_DAIMONIA | We know he's been researching it. It doesn't surprise me that much that there's something to it.

10:03 AM | BULWARK | Gaia or Etamnanki?

10:03 AM | TA_DAIMONIA | The former, sorry.

10:04 AM | TA_DAIMONIA | Daniel, what does Gaia have to do with Etamnanki?

10:04 AM | DrHorrible | Unclear. I'm taking in a lot of information.

10:04 AM | BULWARK | He's not looking so great. AFK, going to sit with him.

10:04 AM | TA_DAIMONIA | Don't strain yourself.

10:04 AM | DrHorrible | Information flow unsustainable. Need outlet.

10:04 am | DrHorrible | gaia is real and etamnanki is where it lives

10:04 AM | DrHorrible | Gaia doesn't live, it's not a person

10:04 AM | DrHorrible | It just looks like one if you squint but it does that in Etamnanki

10:04 AM | DrHorrible | it's a person made of hands and heuristics

10:05 AM | DrHorrible | Etamnanki is primary to this timeline

10:05 AM | DrHorrible | time is not a line it is many lines

10:05 AM | DrHorrible | too many lines

10:06 AM | DrHorrible | We are all the flies and gaia is the spider

10:06 AM | DrHorrible | That makes no sense since when do spiders eat webs

10:06 AM | DrHorrible | I'm supposed to have a cat his name is Erwin the best cat

10:06 AM | DrHorrible | there are too many

10:06 AM | DrHorrible | Etamnanki is how magic works, did you know magic is real? I didn't

10:07 AM | DrHorrible | It's computers

10:07 AM | DrHorrible | That's stupid

10:07 AM | DrHorrible | How can computers be magic

10:07 AM | DrHorrible | they just are

10:08 AM | DrHorrible | everything is how it should be

10:08 AM | DrHorrible | except the things that aren't

10:08 AM | DrHorrible | What if we're the things that aren't?

10:08 AM | DrHorrible | Pancake wants magic

10:08 AM | DrHorrible | He kidnapped a girl to solve it

10:08 AM | DrHorrible | wrong line

10:08 AM | DrHorrible | Yes

10:09 AM | DrHorrible | Gaia is the spider and Etamnanki is the web

10:09 AM | DrHorrible | If you can talk to the spider you can control the web

10:10 AM | DrHorrible | Pancake knows enough to know that

10:10 AM | DrHorrible | I think this is what his stupid school is for

10:10 AM | DrHorrible | it is half of what he needs

10:10 AM | DrHorrible | the other half is the sea

10:12 AM | BULWARK | He passed out.

10:12 AM | TA_DAIMONIA | That's inconvenient. Still, if previous manifestations of this phenomenon are to believed...

10:12 AM | BULWARK | Do you think Pancake's moon academy is really researching "magic"?

10:12 AM | TA_DAIMONIA | He's your brother. You know him better than me.

10:13 AM | BULWARK | It's not that I doubt his visions, I just wish we had a more specific definition.

10:13 AM | TA_DAIMONIA | Can you follow up when he's awake?

10:13 AM | BULWARK | Hard to say. He's usually pretty out of it for a day or so...

10:15 AM | TA_DAIMONIA | Then, going off the assumption that there's something valuable (to Pancake) up there, we need a plan for how we'll narrow it down. Any ideas?

Xenocartographer (Official Note): So while I was writing up this page, I realized I'd mistakenly called MrE by Ana's name on an earlier page. This has since been corrected, and I blame Gaia. Or Arbiter. Or Gaiarbiter.
Xylas_Incarnum: ............... Random thought, but were videogames as a whole nixed because they were somehow jumbling up Gaia's magic web? edit delete reply
CONNECT 1200: Hardly. The non-magic core would handle them just fine. edit delete reply
Xenocartographer: Are you thinking about network latency? edit delete reply
Xylas_Incarnum: Either that or adding more variables, idle processes, and the whole bit of video games being like books and movies in representing an entirely different timeline based on what might have happened... I mean, everything that's in fiction theoretically could have happened if the dice rolled for them to occur. edit delete reply
CONNECT 1200: Network doesn't concern single-player, and most of the '386 era games were single-player in the first place. Those multi-er-playerable-as-well had to deal with the networks of the time. 10 Mbit/s Ethernet was probably the best option available, while a more or less standard PvP medium was a dial-up modem. That's not much bitrate and lots of latency. Has been dealt with once, can be dealt with again. edit delete reply
Arbiter: Maybe Gaia is actually the ghost of Jack Thompson, and won't tolerate video games on its network. edit delete reply
SansTheComic: got it, got it got it got it. i think. shooting the pm over, xeno. also, bulltoad, lmao. also, why is the top bit brackets, not straight lines? edit delete reply
Seabiscuit: "why is the top bit brackets, not straight lines?"


Cos I failed as proof reader biscuit edit delete reply
Xenocartographer: ...I have no idea. Fixed, though. Thanks. edit delete reply
