Fall 2015 Town Hall Transcript

Town Hall highlights:

Trick or Treat punkins are available in front of city hall at the base of the statue

Turtle Egg Hunt will work until Oct. 31st, 2016, barring script errors. Send vendor locations to Tenk for a notecard compilation. There are no other hints, other than the behaviour of the local sea turtles.There are still a lot of gaps in the underground that are being worked on.

Halloween reminder: building is roleplay.

Brunel Hall Halloween bash will be on Oct. 23rd.

Designing Worlds will be having a special New Babbage story broadcast for Halloween.

There are a lots of really good Halloween sims to visit this time of year, like Halloween-Town!


Miss Breezy is missed, so are the formal events at Piermont.

There has been increased incidents of meter payments getting lost in lab restarts on Tuesday mornings. If this happens to you, tell Tenk so he can find your payment and feed it back into your tier meter.

Snark does not help new builders become better builders. They have a much steeper learning curve ahead of them then the older folks ever did.

Tenk put out a call for submissions so the Tales from New Babbage broadcasts can be continued. He will pay a penny a word up to 5000 words for horror, no longer than 7500 words in length, and 2 pennies per word for Christmas stories set in or around New Babbage of 3o00 words or less. Payment will be converted into whatever the linden exchange is paying for that.

The Red Cat Flash ebook is pending and will be published in iBooks format only. 

Aether Salon is scheduling the season’s speakers next Sunday at 2pm.

We miss having a functional city hall building.

Someone should organize a Fleet Week to be held during a quieter time of year.

Mr Tenk is still upset that someone burnt his giant goat down before he could bring it into the city.

Next town hall will be in January, barring the usual delays, when we will be planning out the Oiling Festival.

Spread the love

    [13:37] Garnet Psaltery: Are there clues?
    [13:37] Dee Wells (promiscute): I suppose I should put a mound in my sewer
    [13:37] Mosseveno Tenk: and since this is very unstructured, and it’s going to take me a longer time than i thought to get through the sewers, i asked for an extension

    [13:38] Jimmy Branagh: ((I am keeping a transcript))
    [13:38] Tepic Harlequin: look forward to doing an urchin map of em when finished……
    [13:38] Mosseveno Tenk: if you host a prize vendor, tell me so i can get a list of landmarks to find those, that might encourage some traffic to your shops
    [13:38] Mosseveno Tenk: hint… go where a turtle could get to. turtles swim.
    [13:38] Mosseveno Tenk: but they lay on dry land.
    [13:38] Garnet Psaltery nods

    [13:39] Mosseveno Tenk: the baskets are rather cute, and the eggs appear in the basket when you get one.
    [13:39] Mosseveno Tenk: so huge kudos to martien for scripting those, and satu for stepping up to create the egg nest
    [13:39] Vic Mornington (victor1st.mornington): yay!

    [13:39] Garnet Psaltery: Nice job

    [13:40] Tepic Harlequin: amazing amount of work they done on it
    [13:40] Mosseveno Tenk: i’ll put out some zombie rezzers that will stay in place as long as the obnoxious shooters don’t show up, which they will once word gets out. so those might move around.
    [13:40] Mosseveno Tenk: also, since this is october, this is a time when legends are built. surprise me.

    [13:41] Mosseveno Tenk: i’ve got a zombie rezzer, hopefully it still works
    [13:41] Mosseveno Tenk: no clockwork unicorn parts available for steampunk projects this year, aya
    [13:41] Mosseveno Tenk: what else….
    [13:41] Mosseveno Tenk: ah, we got some new folks in town and they are starting to build

    [13:42] Dee Wells (promiscute) waves to Satu :)
    [13:42] Lia Venuto (venra.aries): =D
    [13:42] Mosseveno Tenk: becuase the learning curve they have to climb is a hell of a lot steeper than the one us old farts had to get up

    [13:42] Garnet Psaltery: Hello Satu

    [13:42] Vic Mornington (victor1st.mornington): satuuuuuuuu
    [13:42] Satu Moreau eeps.

    [13:43] Mosseveno Tenk: they have a tough road to get up, because the overall build quality keeps rising as the years go on.
    [13:43] Avariel Falcon nods
    [13:43] Mosseveno Tenk: and if it was me, i would be very intimidated
    [13:43] Mosseveno Tenk: so don’t go crushing them. please.
    [13:43] Mosseveno Tenk: that’s my job.
    [13:43] Tepic Harlequin: heheheh
    [13:43] Vic Mornington (victor1st.mornington): LOL
    [13:43] Avariel Falcon: ^_^
    [13:43] Garnet Psaltery: o.O
    [13:43] Autumn Nightshade (autumnbelladonna): Can I at least give them frogs..? I have so many…
    [13:43] Mosseveno Tenk shrugs

    [13:44] Mosseveno Tenk: it’s not a pleasant job, believe me.
    [13:44] Mosseveno Tenk: yues, you can plague them with frogs.
    [13:44] Autumn Nightshade (autumnbelladonna): Jubilations!
    [13:44] Prof. Rance Vartanian (ranceivartanian) chuckles
    [13:44] Mosseveno Tenk: snowfall… i have a turkey dinner to attend, now and in the future, so snowfall has been permanently moved up 1 week

    [13:45] Dee Wells (promiscute): *cough*
    [13:45] Vic Mornington (victor1st.mornington): :D
    [13:45] Mosseveno Tenk: so that’s the 3rd weekend in november now. so maybe we’ll be snowed up when designing worlds films the christmas show for a change, rather than having to do a microblizzard on a chosen street as in the past
    [13:45] Mosseveno Tenk: that’s one week earlier for snow.
    [13:45] Tepic Harlequin: thanks :-)
    [13:45] Garnet Psaltery nods
    [13:45] Satu Moreau: YAY!
    [13:45] Autumn Nightshade (autumnbelladonna): You’d think with all this soot Global Warming would take effect.
    [13:45] Avariel Falcon: The 14th?
    [13:45] Mosseveno Tenk: i go camping in the desert on thanksgiving weekend, which was our old snow date, with some post apoc folks. we fry up a turkey and have a full dinner.

    [13:46] Bookworm Hienrichs: 21st-22nd, Avariel.
    [13:46] Mosseveno Tenk: it’s a blast, but not for the weak. if you can’t camp, we just can’t be close friends.
    [13:46] Jimmy Branagh: Imagines Mr. Tenk in Bartertown
    [13:46] Avariel Falcon: To make things tricky November starts in teh middle of a weekend
    [13:46] Bookworm Hienrichs: Deep-fry, Tenk? Do you use Alton Brown’s rig?
    [13:46] Bookworm Hienrichs grins.
    [13:46] Mosseveno Tenk: piermont landing… i am hearing from Breezy more often

    [13:47] Jimmy Branagh: YAY!
    [13:47] Dee Wells (promiscute): Good nes
    [13:47] Mosseveno Tenk: i don’t bring the turkey fryer. i’m in charge of hot drinks this year.
    [13:47] Garnet Psaltery: Oh nice
    [13:47] Dee Wells (promiscute): *news
    [13:47] Bookworm Hienrichs hopes Breezy is doing well.
    [13:47] Mosseveno Tenk: i’m going to get a charcoal samovar from turkey. it looks like a nice steampunk post apoc crossover groove
    [13:47] Dee Wells (promiscute) agrees with Book
    [13:47] Mosseveno Tenk: yes, she sounds much more like her old self. the backtier has been paid.
    [13:47] Dee Wells (promiscute): Ahh, ggood

    [13:48] Vic Mornington (victor1st.mornington): ive been seeing her log in more, usually at odd times…
    [13:48] Dee Wells (promiscute): She’s been missed
    [13:48] Avariel Falcon unicorns hugs for Breezy
    [13:48] Tepic Harlequin: not been enough dancing…..
    [13:48] Dee Wells (promiscute): :D
    [13:48] Mosseveno Tenk: i don’t know if she is up to hosting the formals yet, but we will at least make the decemeber ball happen, one way or another, it might only be the early ball with loki as DJ.
    [13:48] Satu Moreau: That’s good to  hear she’s doing better though
    [13:48] Dee Wells (promiscute): Yes
    [13:49] Mosseveno Tenk: breezy usualy logs in early us east coast time. i’m not usualy awake then.
    [13:49] Mosseveno Tenk: ah.. tuesday tiers!
    [13:49] Mosseveno Tenk: dr fabre’s meter was deeply in arrears, which had me puzzled, because he is extremely punctual with his pattern.

    [13:50] Avariel Falcon: The curse of Tuesday restarts
    [13:50] Dee Wells (promiscute): Oh my
    [13:50] Mosseveno Tenk: so i dug into my transactions, and he saw he had been paying on a tuesday morning
    [13:50] Lia Venuto (venra.aries): rolling restart got him?  happened to me at my little place in another sim
    [13:50] Garnet Psaltery: :o(
    [13:50] Bookworm Hienrichs: Eep.
    [13:50] Prof. Rance Vartanian (ranceivartanian): Oh dear
    [13:50] Mosseveno Tenk: so if you pay on tuesday morning, puhLEES go check your meter the next day and make sure your credits were not lost. i’ll fix it if i know about it. i’ve caught it a few times, but it’s not something i look for.

    [13:51] Jimmy Branagh: Maybe should put a sign at the panels
    [13:51] Vic Mornington (victor1st.mornington): better to not do anything L$ related on a tuesday at all…
    [13:51] Jimmy Branagh: Nope
    [13:51] Dee Wells (promiscute): Until after noon, anyway
    [13:51] Mosseveno Tenk: most folks will say i’m very honest about the meters, and usualy will default to your side if i can’t figure out what happened.
    [13:51] Beatrixe Rouse (beatrixerouse): Noted…that might explain some things…
    [13:51] Mosseveno Tenk: also, if you pay me directly for whatever reason.. TELL ME

    [13:52] Vic Mornington (victor1st.mornington): …otherwise tenk will add it to the christmas fermented milk fund pot
    [13:52] Mosseveno Tenk: or i won’t notice it. i’ll go feed your meter manually if you want, but my daily transaction list is pretty long, and i don’t read it unless i have a reason to.
    [13:52] Dee Wells (promiscute): XD
    [13:52] Avariel Falcon: Yay!
    [13:52] Garnet Psaltery: :D

    [13:53] Mosseveno Tenk: sometimes folks do gift me because they like the place, i suauly feed that into a delinquent meter.
    [13:53] Mosseveno Tenk: doesn’t happen often, but it does happen.
    [13:53] Mosseveno Tenk: and last tihng on my list… the podcast!
    [13:53] Avariel Falcon: Yay!
    [13:53] Tepic Harlequin: good for them, that sort of thing should be encouraged
    [13:53] Mosseveno Tenk: i got one recording that needs processing, but one section needs a do over because she read too fast.

    [13:54] Mosseveno Tenk: but the stories are getting harder and harder to find. especialy for christmas. and i won’t skip the christmas broadcast, which is the one folks look forward to the most
    [13:54] Mosseveno Tenk: last year it was all original stories on that one
    [13:54] Mosseveno Tenk: soooo
    [13:54] Mosseveno Tenk: here’s what i’ll do
    [13:54] Dee Wells (promiscute): Loki’s was amazing
    [13:54] Avariel Falcon nods
    [13:54] Mosseveno Tenk: i’ll pay a penny a word for horror stories

    [13:55] Garnet Psaltery: Taxable?
    [13:55] Mosseveno Tenk: up to 5000 words. stories can’t be longer than 7500 words for format time
    [13:55] Dee Wells (promiscute): XD
    [13:55] Mosseveno Tenk: i’ll convert that to linden laundry if you like
    [13:55] Vic Mornington (victor1st.mornington): :D
    [13:55] Garnet Psaltery: Nice
    [13:55] Mosseveno Tenk: horror stories should not be modern. pre WW2

    [13:56] Mosseveno Tenk: or post apoc, as the lore of new babbage actually is a post apoc story, tho not everyone is aware of that
    [13:56] Mosseveno Tenk: i think everyone likes post apoc here
    [13:56] Avariel Falcon: Yay!
    [13:56] Mosseveno Tenk: for christmas stories
    [13:56] Vic Mornington (victor1st.mornington): yeah when fallout releases next month you wont see half the city residents for about 2 weeks…
    [13:56] Mosseveno Tenk: i will pay 2p per word, sotries should be no longer than 3000 words.
    [13:56] Avariel Falcon: ^_^

    [13:57] Nathan Adored gets a suddenimage of an iradiated Santa Claus
    [13:57] Garnet Psaltery: Nothing like an apocalypse to put you in the seasonal mood
    [13:57] Larlotte giggles
    [13:57] Mosseveno Tenk: and these MUST be babbage specific. tho it might be a better story if you don’t use your primary avatars. those stories tend to be weaker than the others.

    [13:58] Mosseveno Tenk: the christmas show traditionally has 3 stories. starts with a short, middle is a short short, often humorous, last one is the longest.
    [13:58] Mosseveno Tenk: sound like a plan?
    [13:58] Dee Wells (promiscute): YEs :)
    [13:58] Avariel Falcon nods
    [13:58] Vic Mornington (victor1st.mornington): :D
    [13:58] Jimmy Branagh: Yeps
    [13:58] Garnet Psaltery: Short shorts, check
    [13:58] Myrtil Igaly: stories are always a plan
    [13:58] Dee Wells (promiscute): O.09
    [13:58] Larlotte: All agreed

    [13:59] Mosseveno Tenk: you’ll retain rights, i get rights to podcast and collect for an anthology sometime in the future if i want to.
    [13:59] Dee Wells (promiscute) nods
    [13:59] Larlotte: I’m off Monday
    [13:59] Larlotte: so I might see if creative juices flow
    [13:59] Larlotte giggles
    [13:59] Garnet Psaltery: :o)

    [14:00] Mosseveno Tenk: i am still going to publish the Red Cat Flash Fiction results as a free iBook. and ibook only, as those are easier to format. amazon is too finiky
    [14:00] Mosseveno Tenk: only hold up on that is i need to get with one of the authors about some editing.
    [14:00] Larlotte: I can’t wait to hear some Babbage stories xD
    [14:00] Satu Moreau: Hehe, yes
    [14:00] Avariel Falcon: The midwinter broadcast is a wonderful tradition
    [14:00] Tepic Harlequin: we got three anhologies puplished!

  3. Mr Tenk Mr Tenk October 10, 2015

    [14:01] Autumn Nightshade (autumnbelladonna): Story time is best time
    [14:01] Mosseveno Tenk: and as the weatehr is getting colder, i’m spending more time online. my presence here varies directly with the weather. i don’t get many warm days, so i have to make the most of those in the season.
    [14:01] Mosseveno Tenk: annnnd that’s all i got in my notes. what you got?
    [14:01] Garnet Psaltery: When’s the barrel race and fireworks?
    [14:01] Mosseveno Tenk: remember, remember….
    [14:01] Dee Wells (promiscute): Edward wanted someone to ask if there’s going to be another build contest for an actual City Hall
    [14:01] Garnet Psaltery: :D
    [14:01] Satu Moreau: 5th of November!

    [14:02] Avariel Falcon: Without splinters
    [14:02] Mosseveno Tenk: dee, most likely. city halls have a 2 year life expectancy. finished or not.
    [14:02] Dee Wells (promiscute): I’ll pass it on
    [14:02] Satu Moreau flails!
    [14:02] Vic Mornington (victor1st.mornington): :D
    [14:02] Garnet Psaltery: Is it going to blow up?
    [14:02] Beatrixe Rouse (beatrixerouse): A new city hall!

    [14:02] Satu Moreau: BWAAAAAAAAH!!!

    [14:02] Autumn Nightshade (autumnbelladonna): One with finished walls?

    [14:03] Jimmy Branagh: No Cavorite stairs!
    [14:03] Satu Moreau: :P~~~~
    [14:03] Vic Mornington (victor1st.mornington): for all you folks looking for halloween stuffs… the town is back…
    [14:03] Nathan Adored: I;m guessing wahever design Autumn might go for, it’d probably incorperate lotsa froggies.
    [14:03] Satu Moreau: Hehe
    [14:03] Mosseveno Tenk: i’ll put out stronger guidelines about the interior too so the usual arguement does not happen.
    [14:03] Garnet Psaltery: Ta, Vic
    [14:03] Mosseveno Tenk: ooh, halloween town. that is a good one.

    [14:04] Prof. Rance Vartanian (ranceivartanian): Oh, nice!

    [14:05] Prof. Rance Vartanian (ranceivartanian): Yes, I just went on a Nightmare pumpkin hunt this week
    [14:05] Mosseveno Tenk: animated mesh mist… hmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmm
    [14:05] Prof. Rance Vartanian (ranceivartanian): It wound up turning into an rp opportunity with Mr. Hyde
    [14:05] Mosseveno Tenk makes a note
    [14:05] Larlotte: bring your own drink because I don’t know if I’ll have a bar yet

    [14:06] Tepic Harlequin: been some fun rping over the past month or two……
    [14:06] Autumn Nightshade (autumnbelladonna): The Pumpkin hunt was not as great actually
    [14:06] Mosseveno Tenk: going on hunts and tours with your friends sounds like rp to me. why wouldn’t it be?
    [14:06] Dee Wells (promiscute): I can lend you a bar
    [14:06] Garnet Psaltery: That story is terrific – lots of action and detail and lots of participants
    [14:06] Vic Mornington (victor1st.mornington): as for Halloween events… 23rd will be the Brunel Hall Halloween bash, and this year halloween actually falls.. on halloween!  It’s ed’s turn that friday so expect something involving Weird Al.
    [14:06] Mosseveno Tenk: i don’t get why folks have such formal expectations about roleplay
    [14:06] Bookworm Hienrichs: Yes – but I will *seriously* need a break when we’re done!
    [14:06] Vic Mornington (victor1st.mornington): *falls on an FTF i mean

    [14:07] Larlotte: Thanks Dee :)
    [14:07] Dee Wells (promiscute): ;)
    [14:07] Mosseveno Tenk: eyah, don’t drag a story out longer than it needs to be. that wears folks down.
    [14:07] Mosseveno Tenk: so anyting we need to nail to the calendar?
    [14:07] Nathan Adored: formal, schmormal…..  so much of the RP here seems to be just ppl hanging out and being IC
    [14:07] Tepic Harlequin: and blowing stuff up!

    [14:08] Garnet Psaltery: Designing Worlds have a Babbage tale to be broadcast this month – one of Emerson’s
    [14:08] Mosseveno Tenk: there hasn’t been a fleet week in a while, i think that would better be in spring tho, when things are quieter socially.
    [14:08] Satu Moreau: Which is how you get to know each other IC, Nathan
    [14:08] Mosseveno Tenk: but i’m not going to organize it….
    [14:08] Satu Moreau: Not much of that these days, but at least there’s some
    [14:08] Nathan Adored: Satu: yup. ㋡
    [14:08] Garnet Psaltery: 26th October
    [14:08] Mosseveno Tenk: oh yeah. i’ve been looking over the shoulder at the draft for that.
    [14:08] Avariel Falcon: I’m happy to host a few ships at Aquila if we did run it again
    [14:08] Garnet Psaltery: but there’s an idea of holding a special Babbage viewing as well – haven’t got a date yet

    [14:09] Garnet Psaltery looks at Dee re theatre
    [14:09] Dee Wells (promiscute): I plan to set up the bathtub races soon
    [14:09] Satu Moreau: That kind of hanging out IC though is a good way to figure who you’re curious about and who you like to rp with most and who you plot well with most
    [14:09] Dee Wells (promiscute): Mini-fleet week
    [14:09] Mosseveno Tenk: that would be a good use for a theater
    [14:09] Mosseveno Tenk: bath tub races ate
    [14:09] Mosseveno Tenk: aye
    [14:09] Mosseveno Tenk: that’s one way to get them to bathe…
    [14:09] Bookworm Hienrichs snerks.
    [14:09] Vic Mornington (victor1st.mornington): rofl
    [14:09] Satu Moreau: Noooooo!
    [14:09] Garnet Psaltery: hehe
    [14:09] Mosseveno Tenk: did we have the goat races?
    [14:09] Dee Wells (promiscute): The Theatre is wide open for stuff like that. That’s what it’s for
    [14:09] Satu Moreau: Goat races?
    [14:09] Jimmy Branagh: Not yet
    [14:09] Satu Moreau: That sounds fun!

    [14:10] Avariel Falcon: Goat races! Yay!
    [14:10] Larlotte: I now need a bath in my life
    [14:10] Autumn Nightshade (autumnbelladonna): Do I ge tt okeep the goat as a pet?
    [14:10] Garnet Psaltery: Live goats?
    [14:10] Larlotte: Maybe a goat in a bath
    [14:10] Dee Wells (promiscute): Hehe
    [14:10] Satu Moreau flails!
    [14:10] Garnet Psaltery: lol
    [14:10] Vic Mornington (victor1st.mornington): angry goat
    [14:10] Dee Wells (promiscute): Xd
    [14:10] Tepic Harlequin: have to have a very good random movement script……
    [14:10] Garnet Psaltery: heh
    [14:10] Nathan Adored: hmmmmm…. or a goat pulling a bathtub?
    [14:10] Jimmy Branagh: Goats are sacred here
    [14:10] Satu Moreau: BWAAAAAAAAH!!!
    [14:10] Dee Wells (promiscute): ;)
    [14:10] Autumn Nightshade (autumnbelladonna): Goat bath tub chariot races?
    [14:10] Larlotte: I think the bathtub would have better luck pulling the goat Nathan
    [14:10] Nathan Adored: with or without water in them? :D

    [14:11] Vic Mornington (victor1st.mornington): thats why im well liked.. *points at my legs* :D
    [14:11] Avariel Falcon: We never did find the stolen giant goat statue…
    [14:11] Avariel Falcon shakes head
    [14:11] Jimmy Branagh: 8D
    [14:11] Dee Wells (promiscute): Hehehe
    [14:11] Garnet Psaltery: Pfft
    [14:11] Satu Moreau: Hehe, I could see that, a broken half bathtub stuck on wagon wheels
    [14:11] Mosseveno Tenk: stuborn as a goat is, put the goat in the tub and drag it
    [14:11] Dee Wells (promiscute) whispers: XD
    [14:11] Dee Wells (promiscute): I like it ;)
    [14:11] Larlotte: Half a bathtub sure
    [14:11] Satu Moreau: XD If I weren’t buried in other things, I ‘d wanna make it

    [14:12] Nathan Adored: hmmmmmm… maybe someone stole that goat statue to turn it into the Trojan Goat?  oO
    [14:12] Satu Moreau: XD We’d need to convince Emperor Crumb to dress up and take an honorary lap in one of the chariots
    [14:12] Larlotte: If any giant goats turn up, you know not to trust them
    [14:12] Dee Wells (promiscute): :D
    [14:12] Mosseveno Tenk: someone burnt down my trojan goat last year. mgiht have saved the city for all i know
    [14:12] Garnet Psaltery: Wasn’t it set on fire?
    [14:12] Garnet Psaltery: Yes
    [14:12] Mosseveno Tenk: i was just about to bring it in the city too
    [14:12] Larlotte: A flaming trojan goat?
    [14:12] Dee Wells (promiscute): I’m sure it was an accident *looks away*

    [14:13] Myrtil Igaly: did you find corpses in the ashes?
    [14:13] Vic Mornington (victor1st.mornington): wasnt me!  i had nothing to do with the big burning goat at holmes and watsons party….
    [14:13] Larlotte: Is this a metaphor?
    [14:13] Nathan Adored: Never look a gift horse in the mouth…. the soldiers hidden inside will shoot at you
    [14:13] Dee Wells (promiscute): No, actually happened, hehe
    [14:13] Garnet Psaltery: I think it might have been a unicorn accident …
    [14:13] Autumn Nightshade (autumnbelladonna): I think that was a confession from Vic
    [14:13] Mosseveno Tenk: really looking foreward to skating season. i’ve been replacing the canal walls, so it should look really good this year. that’s also when it’s easier to find the sewer entrances.
    [14:13] Prof. Rance Vartanian (ranceivartanian): A big wicker goat
    [14:13] Larlotte: tehe
    [14:13] Dee Wells (promiscute): Oh, I have to check the waterwheel
    [14:13] Larlotte: Will the canal be frozen by the warehouse?
    [14:13] Mosseveno Tenk: ah, cutea is having computer trouble, if she can’t build the schpookyhaus, i might call for a team to do it

    [14:14] Dee Wells (promiscute): Ah, weill keep it in mind
    [14:14] Dee Wells (promiscute) looks at Jimmy
    [14:14] Vic Mornington (victor1st.mornington): larlotte… all the canals get frozen, not right away though
    [14:14] Larlotte giggles
    [14:14] Jimmy Branagh raises an eyebrow
    [14:14] Dee Wells (promiscute): Shpoooookyyyyyy
    [14:14] Garnet Psaltery: Get yer bodies  in the canal before winter *nods*
    [14:14] Mosseveno Tenk: the water freezes in the canals, up to the sun gate in babbage canals, piermont landing and the hammer bridge in wheatstone, and as far out into iron bay as i can reach
    [14:14] Dee Wells (promiscute): Hehe
    [14:14] Larlotte: Oh, I better make sure I’ve made alternative arrangements then
    [14:14] Vic Mornington (victor1st.mornington): hold on i’ll drag up a piccy so you know what to expect

    [14:15] Mosseveno Tenk: the lake also freezes
    [14:15] Larlotte: I don’t mind that it freezes
    [14:15] Dee Wells (promiscute): Great skating on the lake
    [14:15] Avariel Falcon: And the snow horse comes out to play!
    [14:15] Garnet Psaltery: Yay!
    [14:15] Larlotte: I just wanted to know because I won’t be able to get the boat in and out
    [14:15] Mosseveno Tenk: this is probably the largest ice skating venue on the entire grid in winter
    [14:15] Tepic Harlequin: just put  skids on any barges and skate em along!
    [14:15] Dee Wells (promiscute): I bet it is :)
    [14:15] Larlotte: I need some ice skates. I already have a winter outfit
    [14:15] Dee Wells (promiscute): Pulled with goats, Tepic ;)

  4. Mr Tenk Mr Tenk October 10, 2015

    [14:16] Mosseveno Tenk: setting the shims between wheatstone and canals always gives me a headache. there’s usulay a couple of drownings before i get it right.

    [14:16] Vic Mornington (victor1st.mornington): there… new babbage in winter…
    [14:16] Larlotte: I heard about a snowman comp and I’m excited
    [14:16] Dee Wells (promiscute): hehe
    [14:16] Dee Wells (promiscute): Drownings?? O.0
    [14:16] Larlotte: There was much flailing
    [14:16] Mosseveno Tenk: the snowman comp will start when the fountain in clockhaven freezes
    [14:16] Nathan Adored: New Babbage in Winter would be a good name for a novel
    [14:16] Avariel Falcon: Jack will be returning to the city this year with another snow animal contest
    [14:16] Nathan Adored: or a steampunk band
    [14:16] Larlotte: Or a story
    [14:16] Larlotte winks
    [14:16] Dee Wells (promiscute): Or a play by William Shakesteam

    [14:17] Mosseveno Tenk: winter babbage is best babbage
    [14:17] Mosseveno Tenk: or so many claim
    [14:17] Garnet Psaltery: :o)
    [14:17] Larlotte: Anyone who has seen Doctor Who can believe that
    [14:17] Vic Mornington (victor1st.mornington): and for the new folks… yes, its deep snow in places
    [14:17] Dee Wells (promiscute): Sounds like a direct quite form Kaylee
    [14:17] Nathan Adored: Fraid I;m more of a warm weather guy…. I hate wintery snow…
    [14:17] Garnet Psaltery: The Boiler in Winter?
    [14:17] Mosseveno Tenk: it can get laggy tho, but its worth it. i dont’ think any other estate of this size does such an ambitious season shift.
    [14:17] Dee Wells (promiscute): *from
    [14:17] Satu Moreau: Deep enough to hide in and pop out at people
    [14:17] Satu Moreau: :D

    [14:18] Dee Wells (promiscute): Hehehe
    [14:18] Larlotte: It should stay warm in the warehouse Nathan
    [14:18] Mosseveno Tenk: one thing to note about the snow… USE MY TEXTURE

    [14:18] Avariel Falcon: New-Babbage traditional broadcast:
    [14:18] Mosseveno Tenk: or we get disco snow
    [14:18] Satu Moreau: We need to start improving on that too, Mr. Tenk. Materials now
    [14:18] Vic Mornington (victor1st.mornington): and if you dont use the same texture, Boiler Elf will eat you…
    [14:18] Dee Wells (promiscute): Yes, the ones from last year have been improved
    [14:18] Avariel Falcon: Snow animal contest:

    [14:19] Larlotte: Ok, I’ll need texture haha
    [14:19] Mosseveno Tenk: mm, yeah, i should prolly have a class on how to apply materials. it’s got easier to use, if you do the math right
    [14:19] Dee Wells (promiscute): We need a place for municipal textures
    [14:19] Garnet Psaltery: Like a town hall?
    [14:19] Dee Wells (promiscute): Hehe
    [14:19] Mosseveno Tenk: i will be out of town next weekend at my desert camp.
    [14:19] Satu Moreau: XD
    [14:19] Dee Wells (promiscute): Why, yes ;)
    [14:19] Wright Davis (wrightguy0): a town hall would be good
    [14:19] Avariel Falcon: some sort of ‘town hall; would be useful, I agree
    [14:19] Avariel Falcon nods
    [14:19] Dee Wells (promiscute) waves to Wright :)
    [14:19] Wright Davis (wrightguy0): hello

    [14:20] Garnet Psaltery: Hello Wright
    [14:20] Mosseveno Tenk: baron klaus will be holding a salon on that sunday to nail down the salon calendar. i need someone to pass him this note i got from the boiler elf to say he will be in town in december
    [14:20] Jimmy Branagh: I will
    [14:20] Satu Moreau points to Jimmy
    [14:20] Mosseveno Tenk: but i don’t know what he is going to talk about this year. prolly a continueation of his clausology series
    [14:20] Bookworm Hienrichs: Ahh, excellent.
    [14:20] Vic Mornington (victor1st.mornington): he’ll just stand there and scare the kids…
    [14:20] Dee Wells (promiscute): Hehehe
    [14:20] Garnet Psaltery: :D
    [14:20] Avariel Falcon: ^_^
    [14:20] Mari Moonbeam: nose pinch them

    [14:21] Garnet Psaltery: That was an interesting topic
    [14:21] Dee Wells (promiscute): Was fascinating last year
    [14:21] Dee Wells (promiscute): Yes
    [14:21] Avariel Falcon: The scary truth about Christmas!
    [14:21] Dee Wells (promiscute): Hehe
    [14:21] Mosseveno Tenk: last year was an easy one. and fun. just a tour of google images
    [14:21] Dee Wells (promiscute): Was funj
    [14:21] Dee Wells (promiscute): And freaky
    [14:21] Mosseveno Tenk: this year i’m going to have to dig for it. it’s a topic i’ve been avoiding for
    [14:21] Vic Mornington (victor1st.mornington): for the new folks in town, the social season when the show hits… goes insane….
    [14:21] Mosseveno Tenk: mmm… when was my rez day?

    [14:22] Mosseveno Tenk: that long
    [14:22] Dee Wells (promiscute): Hundreds of years
    [14:22] Bookworm Hienrichs chuckles.
    [14:22] Dee Wells (promiscute): -ish
    [14:22] Mari Moonbeam: there’s no business like show …
    [14:22] Satu Moreau: 0.0 I’ll be 11 in November

  5. Mr Tenk Mr Tenk October 10, 2015

    [14:22] Mosseveno Tenk: we get a lot of tourists in winter. i don’e care what they are wearing if they are not here for roleplay, as long as they are wearing clothes.

    [14:23] Dee Wells (promiscute): Oh my…
    [14:23] Avariel Falcon: Yay!
    [14:23] Vic Mornington (victor1st.mornington): a LOT of tourists
    [14:23] Garnet Psaltery: Congrats, Satu
    [14:23] Dee Wells (promiscute): In SL years, that’s… prehistoric
    [14:23] Satu Moreau: Thanks, Garnet
    [14:23] Satu Moreau: Lol
    [14:23] Autumn Nightshade (autumnbelladonna) crams her river toad in Satu’s mouth “Congrats!”
    [14:23] Jimmy Branagh: hehe
    [14:23] Vic Mornington (victor1st.mornington): the summer stayers have all moved out of Brunel… im recognising a few of the winter stayovers moving back in…
    [14:23] Mosseveno Tenk: politeness goes a lot further in getting people to cover up than rudeness or snark. that just makes htem teleport in their nekkid friends to cause a scene
    [14:23] Satu Moreau squeaks and munches the toad
    [14:23] Satu Moreau: Nom nom nom *Smack*Om, Nom.
    [14:23] Mosseveno Tenk: but streakers still get a ban
    [14:23] Autumn Nightshade (autumnbelladonna): He had a good life.
    [14:23] Bookworm Hienrichs nods.

    [14:24] Avariel Falcon notes, unicorns probably do not require clothes
    [14:24] Mosseveno Tenk: remeber if you have an engineers tag, you have the power to freeze on puublic land. yuo may play dress up
    [14:24] Satu Moreau: :P~~~~
    [14:24] Satu Moreau: You stick a frog in a tanuki’s mouth and expect it to not be eaten?
    [14:24] Avariel Falcon if there are any visiting unicorns
    [14:24] Mosseveno Tenk checks the time.
    [14:24] Avariel Falcon nods
    [14:24] Larlotte: OMG DO I
    [14:24] Vic Mornington (victor1st.mornington): LOL Tenk!
    [14:24] Dee Wells (promiscute): You have a coat, Avariel ;)

    [14:24] Avariel Falcon always hopes for visiting unicorns
    [14:24] Bookworm Hienrichs applauds.
    [14:24] Larlotte: Woo!
    [14:24] Jimmy Branagh: I have a transcript if anyone wants it.  4 L per word

    [14:27] Vic Mornington (victor1st.mornington): 200mb…. yes….
    [14:27] Mosseveno Tenk: that’s a table that pitches this way and that
    [14:27] Mοmοe Anansi (momoe.mollari): oops
    [14:27] Larlotte is too British for this
    [14:27] Mοmοe Anansi (momoe.mollari): I meant HIiii
    [14:27] Garnet Psaltery: It’ll still croak though :D
    [14:27] Mοmοe Anansi (momoe.mollari): Been too long, I’m figuring out how to SL again^_^;
    [14:27] Dee Wells (promiscute): Hehe :D

    [14:28] Mosseveno Tenk: but at least al jeezera doesn’t force their women into little black microdresses and make her sit with her cooter lined up to the camera
    [14:28] Vic Mornington (victor1st.mornington): dont forget… two major halloween bashes… Oct 23rd and oct 30th… i might hold the one on the 23rd early for the UK folks, ed can do the usual time for the US folks
    [14:28] Mosseveno Tenk: well, that was a conversation killer…

    [14:28] Dee Wells (promiscute): Hehe

    [14:29] Beatrixe Rouse (beatrixerouse): When is winter town hall?
    [14:29] Larlotte: Might take my laptop and hope the internet is ok
    [14:29] Beatrixe Rouse (beatrixerouse): Make it up as we go day?
    [14:29] Dee Wells (promiscute): Worth a try, Larlotte :)

    [14:30] Larlotte: I love parties
    [14:30] Dee Wells (promiscute): Probably have to work it out closer to the season

    [14:30] Mosseveno Tenk grabs a transcript and edits that out
    [14:30] Dee Wells (promiscute): Hehe
    [14:30] Larlotte: I’ll dance til my feet fall off then claim tis but a scratch!
    [14:30] Mosseveno Tenk: winter town hall will probably be in january. we will talk about oiling festival.

    [14:31] Larlotte: I give up already
    [14:31] Vic Mornington (victor1st.mornington): larlotte… think building competitions and general overhauls… and running around with a big cannon shooting oil at people…
    [14:31] Mosseveno Tenk: oiling festival happens after all the snow is cleared. i think its got to be a one month long event now. folks with the meshers need extra time.
    [14:31] Prof. Rance Vartanian (ranceivartanian): It’s sort of like spring cleaning for the factories with a lot of festivities to celebrate.
    [14:31] Dee Wells (promiscute): You have lots of time, Larlotte :)

    Yay! We shall make a snowcity, be nice to new folks, be scary by building, distribute turtles, ponder fleet week, pay the meters on any day that is not tuesday, make Mr Tenk a new giant goat, race various non-giant goats, burn barrels and fireworks [but not goats], perform various story related activities, ponder new town halls, wish Miss Breezy well [this one is really important], listen to midwinter stories, and visit Aether Salon! Yay!
