Co-piloting Chaos Nova (16). More Contagion and Defiance play.
[The copy-paste intro]
Vaguely around Earth Occidental Standard Year 2014, the drift of interwebs lead my paths into collaboration course with Chaos Nova universe. Since then I have chimed in on the forum-based space opera RPG, and dispensed counsel (unsolicited and otherwise) about passive voice, semicolons, and everything in the process. When not lounging about in the "writers' room", I'm often joining in the crew gameplay sessions. This here is one of those.
Once again, it's actually multiple occasions all in one post, because I'm lazy.
First, there's a session of Defiance where Digi and I continue touring the backroads to find other lifeforms and shoot them, and eventually raiding some super-duper advanced adversary compound. (Knux is listening in and might occasionally speak up.)
Then there's a session of Contagion with Knux, Digi, and Matthegeek. We try an escape scenario, coming to the conclusion that we don't work that well with other people. Then we go on a jolly PvP rampage in the park, and finally team up for another daring escape where I exploit certain gameplay mechanics to their fullest.
Finally, there's the most recent Defiance session with Knux and Digi. There's a bit of waiting-shooting while Knux completes his dinner, then a happy reunion; then we try to get a sense of the game again with the help of some bugs, try out another underground arcfall, and end up fighting some new adversaries in Silicon Valley.
