Co-piloting ChaosNova: "Seeker" behind-the-scenes (9)

------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- 

Vaguely around Earth Occidental Standard Year 2014, the drift of interwebs lead my paths into collaboration course with Chaos Nova universe. I have since run a character in the forum-based space opera RPG (dispensing unsolicited advice about universe, life, and everything in the process), yapped along to countless online gaming sessions, and dug deep into the creative flow with editing, co-writing, and worldbuilding.

This is one of those posts where I show the snippets of me and Knux working on "Seeker" edits over Skype. Here are links to the previous posts in the series: one, two, three, four, five, six, seven, eight.

And here's a selection of snippets from the latest editing-discussion sessions. The chapters around the story's second third's end were already in reasonably good shape text-wise; at the same time, the seemingly minor loose ends at the wording level came with some deeper worldbuilding baggage. So that's what we're tackling with here. (Also, just reading some excerpts for sharing.)

First-off, addressing some questions about possible ID solutions and technologies (that won't require a lot of re-writes to implement).

This time we had some very practical formatting questions to sort out.

Everything but the ladybug is from April - we've had a VERY late and cold spring this year.

So I have been playing ... (104). Completing Dragonfall.

As stated in the latest one-offs roundup, I'd put my playtime under strict limitations to give more priority for writing&editing time. Still, earlier this spring I snuck in some sessions to scratch an old itch: there was some unfinished business in Berlin. Just like with the first campaign, I had kept playing non-stop until quite late in the game, and taken a breather once I ran into a challenge that took more effort to resolve; the breather then grew into proper hiatus. Indeed, my last Dragonfall session before the break was over a year ago.


After failing to pick the most optimal save to continue from, I returned to the beginning of Apex Rising mission, dedicating some time to the trial-and-error (mostly error).

Here is a handful of moments from the latest editing-discussion session(s). The spoiler-free snippets are getting scarcer now that we've reached to the middle of the book, bumping into a lot of plot points that are better discovered than told in advance.


For starters, two micro-excerpts, followed by shameless gloating.
