Ginger couldn't help but smile at Morris' clumsiness. "Red isn't so bad. Sure, it's aggressive. But then it is a game," she said as she picked up her bat and let it fall heavily into her other palm, "And someone has to come out on top. Competition is aggressive by nature, and we're here to test it out, right? We may as well give it our best shot. At least our team has a good color for it."
She grinned again and settled back in her chair waiting for anyone else to guess a letter even though she thought it could have been guessed by now. "Speaking of the team, I wonder why the other boys have gone so quiet..?" Her voice trailed off as she looked around the room.
"Oh! I guess to answer your question, I didn't really have anything better to do. And money is nice. You?"
"True, true, there are worse colors. I just think we need something a little more subtle. Like Coral or Mauve." Morris stared at his empty plate contemplating something.
After a moment he recollected himself, "Sorry, I'm probably just talkin' out my ass. Money is nice, and testing out games is something to do. Also I'm pretty good at this game in particular so I figured why not. Not much else going on around here."

(Taking place after Charlie had awoken and went to get ready for the match...timey wimey.)
Quinn wandered into the cafeteria with a yawn. Making sure your friends aren't concussed and/or dead was a tiring job. She needed something to give her a boost before the big match. She poured herself a cup of lukewarm instant coffee, frowned at the fact that there was no alcoholic Irish cream to go with it, and wandered over to Ginger and Booker.
She leaned over top of them, looking at the hangman puzzle from the day before. "Aw, still haven't solved it yet, ya Booger?" She gave Booker a light punch on the shoulder and sipped on her coffee. This is shit.
She looked at Ginger. "Oh. Um. Hope I wasn't interrupting anything...but...Broomhandle?" She shrugged and smiled at the two of them. Could be wrong, but worth a shot.
"Booker, I'll see ya in the locker rooms. Make sure you talk to Wally about those shirt designs and all that shit." She began to walk away, but turned to Ginger. "See ya out there, Punk. Good luck or whatever." Quinn returned to her room, then made her way to the locker rooms to get ready.
She leaned back in her chair clasping her hands behind her head and stretching on the uncomfortable cafeteria chairs. "Well, looks like the game is over, and Sharlot won't lose her head after all." As Quinn left she added, "Yeah... good luck."
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!

Walltur: Any games coming down the pipe? Online practice game of Cornucopia?

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...?
