    So, Mishie tells me you might have room for 1 more person as 2 people dropped. If so, I'd be up for joining? Been wanting to play a WoD since I got the books.

    So yeah, my character is pretty much done, all that's left is to just finish off the backstory stuff. Also, in the event that we happen to have leftover requisition points, I have absolutely no problems with getting the EVT or Heavy Armor upgrades for my Alanson.

    Lilithium just dropped out, so we could use a new progenitor element if you'd be willing to run one.

    Well, it's true that we need a Progenitor (CRATES OF SEVERED HEADS), but if you don't want to play one, we can buy them as an Ally.

    I actually should have a progenitor sibling around here somewhere. Should I ask for their transfer?

    Not a bad idea, but I'm unsure how kosher is it since that means nolrai have to essentially play another PC...

    Familiar: Sparrow-Hawk was Elsa's first ever creation. Its name is Merlin, originally she planned to create a Merlin bird, but she accidentally took the wrong DNA sample from the library, and then when she tried to mix int DNA to correct the mistake while it was in the breeding chambers, it ended up mutating it into a hybrid. Well, Elsa still loves Merlin anyways. He usually flitters around and pecks at stuff, but occasionally, he flies around and tracks people and records what they say. Because he has a bit of parrot DNA, he can say human words, but only if others have said them. He's pretty intelligent, about the intelligence of a small child.

    Nolrai2, are Elsa the Progenitor's Spheres enough to fully handle our CRATES OF SEVERED HEADS with the resources our Amalgam has? It would be a terrible waste if not.

    Hm? Why more Mind? Mind 1 is enough to deal with our operating area's hemophage infestation, isn't it? If anything, I'd think Matter 2 would be more helpful than Mind 2, since it would let her work on cyborgs.

    I'm honestly not sure how many Mind is needed to trawl brain/resurrect body, see. I think Mind 1 is enough, but not sure.

    For Matter and cyborg, we got mishie. They can even collaborate!

    Well, they're only mostly dead, which is still barely alive. So I don't think Life 5 is necessary. However, the whole "every opinion is true" thing only applies in-game.

    Hmm. How much Mind is needed to trawl frozen heads? Don't you need Mind 2 for memory searches?

    I kind of want to save the heads, actually. Is that possible with only Life 3?

    Life 3 is sufficient to keep someone alive in a reduced pattern state, like just the head with the appropriate support systems.

    If you want to get information out of someone's mind, you need at least mind 3. Mind 1 is just sensory "Is there a mind." not "Full inventory of all data stored inside a mind."

    If you have frozen heads, you're going to need either life or matter conjunctional with mind- mind by itself won't work if the mind isn't active, just like reading information off a computer screen won't work if the computer is off.

    Alright then. I'm guessing that requisitioning a nondestructive brain-interface device for Jared to use(as what the system deems a tool, or "shit we need to do stuff because we're Technocrats") would be a Requisitions roll?

    Oh, I don't need to toss 2 fp into the pool for access to that? Neat.

    Hm... I actually have enough fp saved up for a Sphere. It's fine to have the life support of the heads be a separate Procedure from the brain-trawl, right?

    LosSoeursTechnocrate1: Are you there?
    LosSoeursTechnocrate3: Hm? Oh, hey Jackie! What's up?
    LosSoeursTechnocrate1: Are you on an assignment currently?
    LosSoeursTechnocrate3: No... not at the moment, no. Just taking a couple of classes, since they don't have me doing anything field related. I made this cool bird, look, I'll send you a picture! Isn't he adorable?
    LosSoeursTechnocrate3 attache file "iwantedamerlinbuthescutetoo.jog". Click to open.
    LosSoeursTechnocrate1: If you're not doing an assignment, would you mind help me out? Our construct is currently short of personnel, outside our core groups we've been losing a lot of enlightened scientists left and right.
    LosSoeursTechnocrate3: I don't know? This seems like the sort of issue that you want to talk with Command for. I don't really have any say in that. In fact, you probably have more say than I do.
    LosSoeursTechnocrate1: No I mean, can you put in a transfer request? If you're not on an assignment, we could use a Progenitor.
    LosSoeursTechnocrate3: Oh. You mean like that. I guess I could. But you know your construct leader has to approve.
    LosSoeursTechnocrate1: I don't think she'll have any objections. I will see you in a few hours.
    LosSoeursTechnocrate1 has left the room.
    LosSoeursTechnocrate3: Oh, did she just leave? I didn't even get to ask her how she was.
    LosSoeursTechnocrate3: Well, I guess I can just ask her when she gets there.
    LosSoeursTechnocrate3: Shouldn't be any rush, right? I heard she was on some sort of espionage thing.
    LosSoeursTechnocrate3 has left the room.
