Eternities that Never Were

An Eternity for Patrick Moon

Patrick never found his mummy. This was a sad thing, but he eventually grew up and became an excellent train pilot and one day may or may not have gone on to join the “crew” of the Iron Stomping Lizard.

An Eternity for NanBot

Following the horrible death of Julia Moon, the automaton known as “NanBot” was reappropriated by Cross Authorities and set to more appropriate work for an Autonomous Construction Unit.

Lemma:
I can show you the world
Shining, shimmering, splendid
Tell me, Architect, now when did you
Last let you heart decide?

I can open your eyes
Take you wonder by wonder
Over, sideways and under
On an Iron Yoxen Ride!

A whole new world!
A new fantastic point of view
No-one needs blowing up
Or to tell us stop
Or say we're only dreaming

D'OOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOHM

CHOO CHOO

"You are without a doubt the worst courier I have ever heard of." "Ah, but you have heard of me!"

STATEMENT: And some more...

THIS EXISTS FOR REASONS

RELEASE THE KRAKEN!!!

The Kraken - Lord Alfred Tennyson, 1809 - 1892

Below the thunders of the upper deep,

Far, far beneath in the abysmal sea,

His ancient, dreamless, uninvaded sleep

The Kraken sleepeth: faintest sunlights flee

About his shadowy sides; above him swell

Huge sponges of millennial growth and height;

And far away into the sickly light,

From many a wondrous grot and secret cell

Unnumbered and enormous polypi

Winnow with giant arms the slumbering green.

There hath he lain for ages, and will lie

Battening upon huge sea worms in his sleep,

Until the latter fire shall heat the deep;

Then once by man and angels to be seen,

In roaring he shall rise and on the surface die.

THE BATTLE OF THE CENTURY - THE KRAKEN VS ALL-COMERS! On the one side…

The Tethyrian Grand Fleet,

The Convention Sized Airship,

This is innacurate. Both Perfection (Malachai's airship), and I beleive the convention airship have flappy wings for manouverability.

The CBC and the Airships of Cross and Sophostos,

The Sailors of Tethyris,

The Soldiers of Citadell,

The Foundation,

The Wardens of Sophostos,

An Army of Automata,

Various (mad) Scientists,

and Xenophon Shawe himself,

On the other, THE KRAKEN:

This is the cutest Kraken of all time and I'm suddenly feeling very guilty.

Oh that's what it takes for you guys to sympathise with the innocent Kraken. - The GMs

THE OUTCOME: VICTORY for the GRAND EXPEDITIONARY LEAGUE! HOORAY!

That stunning piece of deception with Pacogaia in full...

Xenophon: Hello Pacogaia, please come outside and away from all my scientist friends.
(Pacogaia heads outside, Xenophon and Martin follow)
Pacogaia: I am unable to connect to the central control, what has happened to the other facilities. We must return to central and resume the Project immediately.
X: A saboteur, that's what it was. A saboteur who destroyed the central command facility!
M: Yes; a saboteur! By the way, I've totally forgotten what the Projects purpose actually is…
X: Yes, forgotten it entirely, what is it now?
Xenophon and Martin stand around, scratching their heads and gazing quizzically at the floor.
P (bemused): This is impossible!
X: It was something to do with a Kraken, guarding the Project…
P (blank look)
X: Genetic Engineering…
P: How do you not know our organisations purpose !?!
M: Well, we wouldn't know - because we're actually all interns!
X: Yes, the saboteur destroyed all the life support systems! All the professors were killed leaving only interns; all the professors save Corin Walters, who is a bit mad and who you shouldn't trust.
Corin Arrives, an awkward silence develops.
X: So, take a look at this wonderful airship, its quite quaint isn't it.
Martin puts his head in his hands as Pacogaia looks around at the decidedly antiquated craft.
P: This is bizarre. Tell me, how long has elapsed since the project was discontinued?
X: Fifteen years.
P: I wish to see other scientists, I am heading inside.
(Pacogaia, Malachai, Martin and Xenophon head inside, to where a “council of war” is proceeding over the map table)
P: This makes no sense.
Everyone: We're all Scientists!
X: We're all interns!
Captain Lemma: But I'm a professor.
X: In the fifteen years since the project ended, we've been doing the best we can to restart it…
Everyone,Chorus of: “The Fifteen Years!”
Pacogaia looks at the map
Everyone: The evil people who hate science are attacking Haven! We love science! Help us fight the science haters!
X: I think they might be the same people who sabotaged the project!
P: This is impossible, there are no people outside the domes. The domes are sealed, the project requires it.
M: Its actually been hundreds of years…
X: fifteen years!!!
M: …since the project was discontinued. The domes have been opened, and people come and go as they please.
P: We must restart the project! We must reseal the domes! I must reach central, only one Dome can survive!
Everyone (aghast looks, glances)
P: How are you all interns? This does not make sense! Why are the domes open?
Captain Lemma: We're actually not scientists.
Xenophon: He's a recently hired intern, ignore him.
P: Recently hired, from where?
X: We chose the most intelligent people who had escaped the domes…and we recruited them?
P: You interfered with the target population! You are not scientists! I must reach central!
Malachai: Damnit Xenophon, you should have said 100 years!
X: O.H.C.R.A.P.

Meanwhile, Lemma embraces the Wildekeinian spirit Lemma: It's okay, we're in charge of the project
P: No, I am in charge of the project
Lemma: No you're not, we're in charge of you.
P: No you're not, I'm in charge.
Lemma: No you're not. Nobody is in charge of us.
P: I'm-
Lemma: NOBODY IS IN CHARGE.

JW: TIME FREEZE!!!! Pacogaia leaves, to destroy the world and kill most characters.

PERSUASION: 5/5
ACADEMICS: 5/5
STRATEGY: 5/5

This game has taught me that almost any stat can accidentally not be hard skilled. And I thought it was just persuasion…

Note: I swear if they had more time to plan they'd make a convincing cover story. At least with the Architects they don't need to make dumb pretences…

Maybe if you left the story-telling to Captain Lemma… https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=umDr0mPuyQc/

Favourite Quotes of the Game

Flynn Turner: Let's just stick to murderising folk the traditional way, like berries and stampeding yoxen.

Xenophon John Hamilton: We need the technology in CASTER, Tethyris is very resource poor…
David Ford: …You'll be even more resource poor after you've been wiped out by Sky Cannons!!!

Candy: What should I call my lapump?
Tallulah: Ooh - Algernon?
Candy: How about Mr. Lapump?
Tallulah: How about Mr. AWESOME Lapump?
Candy: How about Mr. Lapump?
Tallulah: Or, uh…
Candy: Mr. Lapump.

Nikolaj: My father would say that love is the relationship between a puppeteer and his marionettes.
Tallulah: I’d say that love is the relationship between a man and his ridiculous eyewear!

Candy: I'm not saying you don't think before you act… but you REALLY don't think before you act!

Tallulah: How did you get so wise?
Javier: … I grew up.

Martin Richards: *Desperately shaking Corin's shoulders.* Damnit Corin this isn't heroic, this is madness!
Corin Walters: The madness hasn't even begun! (fix'd by corin)

*Five minutes of Punt, Mite and Captain Lemma playing hide and seek with automata*

Sam Noman: I thought you were all about being free.
Punt 'n' Mite: Yeah, and we've got a nice Dome to be free under!

Kay: I'm not a good person. I'm a normal person.

*8 year old puts Mite's hat on Nanbot*
8-year old: Nanny looks like that man on the funny statue mummy wouldn't let me look at for too long

There's a plot?!

“Wait, there's plot?” - The GM team.

As far as I can tell, there's a Wide Open Post-Apocalyptic sandbox with the vaguely defined end goal (which entire domes *coughcrosscough* are free to ignore) of finding out what is up with this whole Paradise thing. It's… sort of the anti-Ragnarok, I guess? (Not that I've played in that one, so feel free to call me out if I'm getting the wrong impression.) Anyway, seen that way perhaps the correct percentages are 5-95…

I think everyone but the Grand Expeditionary League and P.A.R.A.D.I.S.E. division have forgotten about finding paradiso since the first turnsheet or two. But mark my words, the P.A.R.A.D.I.S.E. division will not be thwarted for long…

“I don't know where Paradise is or what it's like, but I can damn well deliver there.” - Captain Lemma

Wait, so you're telling me the entire plot DOESN'T revolve around the ultimate goal of starring in a musical written by Javier Rosa? Damn. Now I feel stupid!

No, don't stop! Starring in a musical written by Javier Rosa has been the Paradise all along. - Signed, the GM Team

Hey, look, I think we found the plot… I blame Lemma

It was definitely the G.E.L.!

You wouldn't steal a train…

The Pacogaia Situation – Behind The Scenes

Here I Dreamt I Was an Architect

An idea that I've had kicking about in my head since around Turn 2. Funny how things turned out…

Here I dreamt I was a Domian
And I roamed the roads of Wildekein
And I recall the trains would trundle on along the plains
In that innocent time.

Where the robots called the sky down,
There Xenophon lies crying loudly now
And to build Paradise there's nothing that I wouldn't try,
Save let my life run out.

Through train rides and turn-sheets,
Guess it always falls to bits.
It's all good, it's OK,
When Corin Walters has his wa-ay-ay-ay-ay.

And I am nothing of a CASTER,
But here I dreamt I was an Architect
And I built these city-states
To keep you pure, to keep you safe from inferior ways
But the barriers and the airlocks
Even though our tech's impeccable
They never seemed to close, the Master Control Units froze
And you were free to go.

Through train rides and turn-sheets,
Guess it always falls to bits.
It's all good, it's OK,
When Corin Walters has his wa-ay-ay-ay-ay.

And here in Raven I'm a Ravenite;
I will be buried with my warrior-queen
Haven and Citadell both to our glorious legions fell
When the UPF stood aside.
But you, my Wildekeinin dazzler,
I love the chaos that you instigate.
And we are thieves of trains,
We fly our airships 'cross the plains
We disregard our fate.

Through train rides and turn-sheets,
Guess it always falls to bits.
It's all good, it's OK,
When Corin Walters has his way
But you jumped, so I win
I guess it had to come to this,
It's all good, it's OK,
When Corin Walters has his wa-ay-ay-ay-ay.

CORIN stands for Cheerful Organic Rebellious Indigenous Newbie.

CORIN had nothing to do with the Royce incident…

CORIN's pocket full of reLAX has been confiscated.

CORIN thinks airships are so last-year.

Into The CASTER

“Careful the things you say,
Automata listen.
Careful the things you do,
The Architects see.
And learn.

Pacogaia may not obey,
But Automata will listen.
Automata will look to you
For which way to turn,
To learn what to be.

Careful before you say,
“Listen to me.”
The Architects listen”

The Hero of Haven

Flynn!
The man they call Flynn!
He kills the rich and he kills the poor.
Stood up to the man and he gave him what for.
Our love for him now, ain't hard to explain,
The hero of Haven, the man they call Flynn!
Now Flynn saw the Slaves' backs breakin'.
He saw the Slaves’ lament.
And he saw that Ravenite takin'
Every bushel and leavin' five corns.
So he said, “You can't do that to my people!”
“You can't crush them under your heel.”
Flynn strapped on his hat,
And in five seconds flat,
Stabbed everything Boss Blake had to stab.
He kills the rich and he kills the poor.
Stood up to the Man and he gave him what for.
Our love for him now ain't hard to explain,
The Hero of Haven, the man they call Flynn.
Now here is what separates murderers
From common folk like you and I.
The man they call Flynn,
He turned 'round his knife,
And let that blood hit floor.
He spilled it in their own houses.
He spilled it into their yards.
The man they call Flynn
He sheathed it again,
And headed out for the stars.
Here we go!
He kills the rich and he kills the poor.
Stood up to the Man and he gave him what for.
Our love for him now ain't hard to explain,
The Hero of Haven, the man they call Flynn!

R.I.P. Fluffy the Owl

To Churchal - I didn't mind you killing me, but the owl was another thing entirely!

Churchill, you say?

Churchill would never harm an owl. It was Corin Churchal, I tell you! Corin Churchal the mad priest! (– who? http://paradiso.chaosdeathfish.com/bio:chuchal? )

In case you don't know, you saw me brutally butcher the owl. FOR THE GLORY OF DRAKON!

Flynn, can you please kill this man?

If it brings you any consolidation I am currently locked in combat with George and Martin inside a ring of fire while all our troops fight it out on the airship.

It seems spirit of Fluffy will have his vengeance, in this life or the next…

Best book ever

in which the world's least cooperative most handsome and intellectually bold (Ed: I think Martins mistaking himself for Xenophon) man calls for cooperation and unification (but only if it's under him and espouses things he believes in) isn't that every piece of political philosophy ever? (Not ALL Political Scientists are egotists!)

Do you mean “pro lumine scientiae?

google translate never lies!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

It's so nice of you to include Corin on the cover!
