Ginger didn't notice Walltur sit across from her either, apparently. He frowned as her dismissal of the cake, he thought it had tasted pretty good.
He gave Booker a small smile, some attention from an old friend was always welcome.
Listening to Sharlot's words, he became further confused and a little disturbed by her language. That's kind of sad.
He stood up from his seat, seeing everyone was pretty occupied looking after Sharlot. He grabbed his plate, stacked it on the two trays and returned it to the dish wash return. As he moved towards the exit, he turns back to the gathered group and waves.

Quinn smiled. "Looks like you've played before! Awesome. And no worries hun, we won't tell your dad. Secret's safe." Quinn pretended to zip her lip.
She whispered to Sharlot, "Tell ya what, since you're such a cool kid, if we ever get back to that silly birthday party idea... I'll get a pinata and you can use my bat to swing at it." She winked at the adorable little girl.

"Oh shi....shoot," he looked over at the small impressionable human sitting at the table and steeled himself to shut the fuck up, "well, this looks...huh. I'm gonna go with an 'O'. Every word's gotta have a vowel, man."

Quinn had been quiet for a while, wanting to give others a chance at this little game. However, it seemed everyone else was quiet as well, or deep in thought over this word with no clues. She was pretty sure Ginger was trying to flirt with Booker, but what business was it of hers? Booker was probably eating it up, anyway. He always loved attention...
"Hmmm. I'm gonna go with a 'B' and hope the first part is 'broom' something. That should help y'all out a bit, if I'm right about the B."
She stood to dump her tray and patted Sharlot on the head as she left. "See ya around, kiddo. Have fun with your game! I might be back later...we'll see about that pinata." She winked at Sharlot, then turned to the rest of the group. "I'm gonna go see where Walltur's headed off to. See ya around." Quinn headed out, towards the vending machines in the hallway to look for Walltur.
Walking through the hallway, Morris could hear the chatter of a handful of people. As he passed the open doorway of the cafeteria, he saw a couple of his team members with another team. For some reason they had cake.
Morris walked over and cut a small slice out of the middle of the cake and and retrieved it using a plastic knife and his middle and index finger. As he proceeded to lick the frosting and crumbs off his fingers he noticed that there was a child sitting at the table next to Ginger.
She looked back at Booker who had been quiet for some time. She was glad to see Quinn go. "Talk about a lack of social skills, she's alright with kids but I'm surprised anyone lets her near them." she thought to herself.
"uhg, me?!" Morris replied with a mouth full of frosting. He gulped it down as he leisurely looked for a napkin. He licked his lips as he wipe off some frosting as he offered Ginger his out-stretched hand.
"Morris. Yea, I'm on the Red Team. I'll be your seeker. I'm not sure how I feel about being on the 'Red' team. Seems a bit aggressive, maybe not."
Morris returned to his cake. "So what brings you to this whole shindig, outside of some money I mean."
Walltur: Mmk, I can see that now

Vester Lombard: Beating a seeker in the 4th is pretty huge. Each IP is essentially erasing the effect of one of their successful searches.
Mar 17, 2016 16:28:34 GMT
Quinn Starling: Yeah, I would have hit Ginger more if I thought she'd rest up or if you'd heal her. But I figured that you guys would maybe leave her at 2 since that was her max, especially since we decided to stay inujurred, too Lol
Mar 17, 2016 16:36:34 GMT
Quinn Starling: We planned back between periods 2-3 to consider staying injured if we got to -3 again, to waste any coming beatings. If you aim for low DCs, have enough skill to make up for the IP, AND get lucky, it's sometimes worth it to keep the damage & keep rolling
Mar 17, 2016 17:34:53 GMT
Vester Lombard: I think in the 2nd period you definitely have to rest. 3rd period, maybe, pending your team strategy. 4th period, probably not.

Sprye Tatel: In the interest of not adding a new post each day to the Space Debate threads, would we be interested in sharing ideas via Google Docs? tinyurl.com/zlk8sb3

Quinn Starling: I'm in favor of death penalty for illegal pretty floral bonnets. I think that needs to be an argument that happens Lol
Mar 21, 2016 13:54:41 GMT
Walltur: Pro, but under the argument that all viewers of the bonnet be executed, rather than the wearer. Deadly illegal bonnets
Mar 22, 2016 4:16:02 GMT
Quinn Starling: Depends on how pretty. We'd need a numerical rating scale, to start. Any bonnet rated 6 or over (by 2/3 vote of galactic council) is determined "pretty" and a single flower may be defined as "floral." Any fixture worn upon the head may serve as "bonnet."
Mar 22, 2016 15:54:13 GMT
Quinn Starling: (that's on a scale of 1-10) And I'd be against death penalty for illegal ones (unregistered, obtained illegally, etc.) Jail sentencing and community work are appropriate, but not death penalty. Too extreme.
Mar 22, 2016 15:56:18 GMT
Vester Lombard: While I am against the death penalty for pretty floral bonnets, I do think that all people who have encountered the bonnet should have their brains slightly melted. I think this would both save lives and prevent any risk of spreading that fashion
Mar 22, 2016 16:25:34 GMT
Sprye Tatel: Again with the slightly-melting brains proposal? Seems very convenient for the Muppet-race; who can re-grow/stuff brain cells! Whose pocket are you in? Who is pulling your strings!?
Mar 22, 2016 17:16:41 GMT
Sprye Tatel: I say that the punishment should fit the crime: The penalty for Pretty Floral Bonnet's (PFB's) should be death by PFB!

Quinn Starling: I have found my people. This is where I belong <3
Mar 22, 2016 23:08:03 GMT
Walltur: Any games coming down the pipe? Online practice game of Cornucopia?
Apr 6, 2016 15:19:22 GMT
Vester Lombard: If you guys want we could try doing some online Galactic Debate. It would lose a bit of the spontaneous improv element when played on the forum, but maybe it could at least help figure out which cards are fun or boring.

Quinn Starling: We could schedule a "live" session and either skype or have the speaker type up their response within a certain time frame. So, speaker says they're free at 9pm. At 8:55 they're given their topic, then they have from 9:00-9:05 to type up their platform...?
