OOC Discussion

By the waning years of the 22nd century, humanity has expanded beyond Earth, establishing colonies on Mars, Ceres, and the moons of Jupiter and Saturn; the latter of these being largely penal or mining colonies, taking advantage of the isolation and mineral wealth of these moons. One such colony, known as Benedict’s Rest, was established on the shores of the north polar sea of Ligeia Mare on the moon Titan, in the year 2169. Originally a penal colony that used convict labor to harvest liquid methane, Benedict’s Rest was bought out by a German energy conglomerate, Richter Dynamics, and expanded; now, in 2189, contract, or “free” miners outnumber convicts 5 to 1—158 free miners to 31 convicts.

The colony’s productivity, formerly the highest of any Richter colony site, has dropped 19% in the last month with no reasonable explanation provided. In the same period, the colony medic, Dr. Henry Holzer, has died; the administration has been vague regarding cause, though it has been intimated that he committed suicide. Over the objections of colony administrator James Kingsley, Richter Dynamics has sent a team of corporate troubleshooters to investigate these two issues and make recommendations to revive productivity.

I'm travelling tomorrow and will be a bit hit and miss over Christmas so I'll be even slower than usual. Hope to get back to a decent post rate in the new year.

Hi folks,

I’m pretty much on radio silence now until after Christmas.

Thanks Mephistophilis for continuing to run ‘Titan’; I’m having a great time, even if I’m not sure how Kiara has managed to stay alive!

Best wishes to you all for the festive season!

No problem. We’ll see what the rover has in the way of tea and biscuits.

It has literally only just reached my attention that I am referring to the colony on Titan as Barnard's Rest and Benedict's Rest interchangeably. I don't know where 'Barnard's Rest' came from, it is called Benedict's Rest in the scenario, and on the map. I was not trying to test you!

Ah, so it wasn’t the aliens trying to superimpose an alternate reality on to us then? ;)

Hi folks,
Alas I’ve reached a point where I can no longer devote the time and mental energy these excellent PbP games deserve, so I’m pulling out.

Thanks very much for the thrills and spills you’ve given me over the last few years (and apologies for cross-posting the same message over the forum!)

I may lurk on and off to see how my fellow investigators are faring, but for now, keep rolling well and hold on to your sanity!

Cheers,
JP

Sorry to see you go jp1885. Would you mind if I offered Kiara up for someone else to take over?

Sorry, something's come up IRL and I've been very distracted. Hoping to get responses for my games by the weekend.

It's fine. Some weeks are really rushed like that and I don't mind the ebb and flow of life.

Sorry, I know I'm being crap at keeping up with the posting but the personal and professional spheres are crazy busy at the moment. Hope to get things back to being a bit more regular as soon as I can.

No problem, we can anticipate the coming doom with relish. And extra pickle.
