TCP: RECOVERY SESSION
let her know that alto may be a few minutes, but that we agree about tenor and gumby!! maybe once they leave we should ask tenor if they want a cape or some clothes too?(a super cute update as always!!!!!<3)
Reply
I want to ask Moll if they've ever played TCP before. I kind of feel like this is their first time, and that in a weird way we know more about the game than they do. Do they know who else might be playing?
Oh right we have signatures

You wonder if you should ask Tenor if they would like some clothes after your guests leave. As you consider this, you notice a new sticky note manifest in the godspace!

You return your attention to your call with Moll.

SOMBROUS: Haha, yeah they sure are! I'm uh... Not sure if Alto will be ready to hang out right away though.
SOMBROUS: Also, quick question: have you played TCP before?

MOLL: Aw that's okay! I hope she's taking care of herself. C:
MOLL: And yeah, I've played a few games! Well, maybe more than a few. Quite a few?
MOLL: I feel like I have a good handle of most of the mechanics at this point, so let me know if you have any questions! ^__^

SOMBROUS: Oh, actually, I was wondering... Do you have any idea who else might be playing?

MOLL: Oh! Well, like I said earlier I think Limestone miiiiiiiiight be playing? It said it would if it had time so I'm hopeful that they got into this session! Other than that I'm not too sure but I'm really hoping Limestone is here, I think it would appreciate having another collective around.

Indulge in a momentary curiousity about our godspace: can we make a sandwich and then eat it?
Then turn our attention back to our tcps, see how they're getting on with the newcomers.

aw definitely let's check in on tenor again - is there anything else we need t ask moll tho? (Sandwich time..)

is there a manual? a list of rules we could check? it never hurts to be prepared! We have the list of commands but that seems more like a tutorial.

MOLL: Oh right! You're like, really really new to this. I kind of forgot, sorry!
MOLL: So TCP is a "game" created by this guy named Wax, IDK much about him honestly, but it's meant to teach gods about responsibility and stuff.
MOLL: Each game's got at least five players and each player gets to spawn five TCPs! After that happens, it's possible for the game to be won.
MOLL: You win by being the last team standing! There's a good way of doing that where you ally everyone else playing so it's like you're all one team or the bad way where.... kitties get hurt and it sucks and is stupid! So I just don't do the bad way it's easy. C:
 
CREATE: Sandwich in godspace

[Image: UtFypoU.png]

That's a good sandwich! You made it exactly how you like it.
 


Turning your attention back to the TCPs, you see that the marimo types have made it back to home base where Alto has been waiting.

[Image: ypPjbqg.png]

Alto immediately pulls Tenor into a tight hug.

After a moment she detaches herself and Tenor offers to play some music on the jukebox. Gumby settles down on the cushions, letting Alto check out its cape while the TCPs chat.

MOLL: Um, well that can be tricky but you just gotta be smart! And stubborn.
MOLL: It's almost always possible to disable an enemy without having to actually kill them.
MOLL: After that, it's just a matter of waiting them out. Usually violent players get bored if they can't overpower you or force you to fight back!
MOLL: Sometimes you can convince them to ally using the kitties you've captured as bargaining chips. Which... Okay, I know that sounds a bit mean but it's WAY better than everyone fighting each other until someone gets really hurt! Plus that way they get back to their teams sooner so its Mostly a win-win scenario.

SOMBROUS: That does definitely sound better than fighting at least. Do you want to ally and go from there?

MOLL: OH!!!! Yes!
MOLL: I'll send you a request to ally right away!! Yaaay friends! : D
 
MOLL would like to become ALLIES. Do you accept?

don't spawn anything, if there's 5 players and the limit is only 9 we would steal a tcp from someone else

MOLL: Plus any good will you might earn with the other players... Even though you were being kind, I'd say it checks out strategically too.

SOMBROUS: Oh! Glad to hear it.

MOLL: This does mean I'm gonna be busy for a few minutes while I get my new TCP settled though. I really shouldn't keep her waiting too long. :/
MOLL: You can check in with the TCPs or try striking up a conversation with the other players? I think everyone should be in the game by now.
MOLL: Anyway, I'll talk to you in a bit. Seeya!

Moll hangs up to help get her new TCP oriented, leaving you alone to choose your next course of action.

Is there a phone book or something to call the other players? I dunno, check in the tcps, then talk to a rando and hope for the best.

Let's take a quick look at the TCPs first and see how they're doing. If they seem content, we'll start looking for other players to call.

By the way, Moll, what type did you spawn just now?

We should make something that our tcps can use together. Alto like the scooter didn't she? How would feel about a small scooter park, with lots of ramps and curves? (Do we have room for that im not sure)
If she's up for it, make it, as well as another two scooters and helmets.

You wanted to ask Moll what type of TCP she spawned, but since she's already hung up, you decide to ask her later. Immediately, another sticky note appears to reflect that thought. Nice.

[Image: 2gLWykm.png]
 


Next on your list is to check in with the TCPs. The three cats are still happily chatting with each other; you're pretty sure they'll be content to hang out for as long as they're allowed.

You feel like making something for the cats to do together might be a good idea. You remember how much Alto enjoying riding the electric scooter, so maybe a scooter park with lots of ramps and curves would be a nice addition to the Starbound Haunt! When you pitch the idea to Alto, though, she looks at you kind of strangely. She says she isn't sure her scooter would really be able to handle curved surfaces all that well; it's kind of bulky. Maybe you could make lighter weight ones instead? Thinking about it again, you can see what she means about the regular scooter being too bulky for this kind of thing. Since Alto's okayed it though, you decide to make a scooter park for the revised scooters.

CREATE: Scooter park, non-motorized scooters, helmets

Nothing shows up that you can see and for a moment you begin to worry something went wrong, but then Alto walks over the console and starts flipping through the camera views. It doesn't take long for her to pull up the scooter park on the screen.

You glance at your sticky notes and remember that you meant to ask Tenor if they'd like you to make some clothes. Tenor says they would definitely like clothes, so long as Alto is okay with you spawning them in right now. They trust you to pick something nice and comfortable for them!

[Image: KO5WXlc.png]

You check in with Alto (again), this time about making clothes for Tenor. You get a yes this time as well, though she requests that you make her some clothes too. Something cool looking and easy to move around in, please! You tell her you'll do your best.
 


You can now create outfits for Alto and Tenor. Feel free to describe them with words or use images!

(I'll be linking the images since they're pretty big)

Tenor

Bottoms: A choice between black sweatpants and a black skirt, equally comfortable, depends on your preference.

Alto
Top: Seconding spiderman theme, but a bit more discreet.

And a striped yellow and pink tee.
Bottoms: A choice between ripped jeans, shorts, or a skirt (all with multiple legs for Alto). I know not everyone likes the texture of jeans, so feel free to pick and choose what you want to wear here.

CREATE: Spider-man jacket, striped pink and yellow tee, flame bandanna, extra flexible ripped jeggings, boots, patchwork pompom hoodie, black skirt, star-shaped sunglasses x2

[Image: panel_72.png]

The cats try on their new clothes without hesitation. Alto gives the room a quick lap after pulling on her boots, remarking that these seem really pretty great to move around in. Good job! Tenor's movements are more subtle but you notice them running their paws appreciatively over the soft fabric of their skirt and tugging gently on the pompoms attached to the strings of their hoodie. They thank you very sincerely for the gifts.

[Image: panel58.gif]

You turn your attention back to the godspace just in time to see your middle sticky note fade away. It appears that your reminders will automatically disappear upon being rendered obsolete. How handy!
 


You ask Alto if she'd like some cool new gear and some cool new tricks to go with it. She seems intrigued, so you explain the concept of a skateboard to her. Fully enthused now, she gives you permission to make it but says she'd rather learn how to use it on her own. Not just to avoid being TAUGHT, but also because she thinks it might be more fun that way. She'll let you know if she changes her mind about that though.

CREATE: Skateboard

Alto immediately goes to hop on the board but Tenor stops her, firmly but not unkindly telling her she should probably wear a helmet for this too. Now properly equipped, Alto positions herself on the skateboard, testing out which configuration of legs on/off the skateboard works best.

[Image: panel_74.png]

Everything seems sorted on the TCPs' front, what will you do now?

After that... Veil, I guess? I'm not entirely sure whether ??? is the last person's actual name or if they're hiding their name somehow. Either way, let's maybe hold off on talking to them for now.

You pat your face to make sure it's still there and are relieved to find it is. Limestone snorts incredulously. They regain their composure quickly, though they still look like they're trying their best not to laugh.
