Are we defining 'willingly' real loosely, then?


Harbor Commons bboard

A bulletin has gone out on the residents' (Digital) board:

Just a quick reminder to please re-familiarize yourselves with security protocols. And I know we're usually fine with it, but maybe it'd be a good idea for the next week or so to temporarily not allow strangers on the grounds if they aren't someone's direct guest?

Also, 5 points for every camera you smash. Ten points if they're that Daily Mirror douchebro with the mad fashy haircut.

Tempting. What do we get to redeem the points for?

If you're slick about it, they can be redeemed at Workhaus for cupcakes. If you're not slick, they can be redeemed with DHS for a free stay in Pa's cosy recently vacated cell.

I agree it'd be a good idea for a little while to not allow strangers on the grounds. I suspect until the noise dies down, most neighborhood folk aren't going to be in a huge rush to use our playground anyway so it's likely mostly only gawkers and assholes and creepsters we'd be getting anyway.

Pa says we're serious about the cupcakes, by the way. Maybe not about the camera smashing. MAYBE not.

Does it count if we just render them inoperable without physically capturing them? Asking for a friend.

@Horus Bring to me your contraband cameras, and they will be the shiniest cameras that have ever shinied.

unless it is a very nice cell how nice of a cell

Seconded on the stranger thing. Thirded, whatever.

It's a pretty posh cell. Y'know. As cells go. By the way do we get points if they just all happen to surrender their cameras willingly? Also asking for a friend.

Are we defining 'willingly' real loosely, then? Also yeah as cells go, comfy. And my roommate was lovely. The whole bit with not being allowed to leave really took away from its charm though.

Isn't the plague over? I feel decidedly under siege again. I came home from work to find a ravening horde at the gates.

By the by, can I say welcome home here? Welcome home.

Did we establish ground rules, here? Disabling cameras is okay? Getting them willingly surrendered? How many points do you get for all this kind of thing? I feel like we need some sort of structure to this game.

(Oh, right, welcome! Everyone, those cupcakes are not fooling around.)

Well, that throwaway joke sure escalated quickly. Though thankfully the mob outside seems to take sleeping breaks. The professionals, at least; Ryan you have some dedicated gorram fans. Jax, you have some dedicated gorram haters. I guess I can reify this point system but don't blame me if any of you end up in jail. I accept zero responsibility for that points are for entertainment value only and should not be considered an endorsement of illegal activities.

  • 5 points - smashed camera (5 point bonus for That Asshole From The Daily Mirror if you can provide evidence it's his smashed camera)
  • 5 points - disabled camera
  • 10 points - willingly surrendered camera
  • 20 points - each reporter you willingly convince to go the goddamn fuck home and leave us in peace
  • -5 points - each time you get caught on camera doing any of this and it's published somewhere (I may conditionally let this slide if you're looking badass enough)
  • -100 points - any quote from you that turns up in any media publication
  • -500 points - doing any shit that gets the cops dragged ON to the grounds

Buena suerte and happy hunting.

I am going to pretend I haven't seen all the posts about thievery and get to the important things:

Brunch Saturday will be at 10:30. Jax and Ryan are cooking. For those of you who are new, trust me, you want to eat this brunch. For those of you who aren't, I should tell you they aren't actually staying for the meal part. That's probably still a little too much socializing. If you want to hang out, you can help cook.

We'll be having an ACTUAL welcome home party next Saturday at our place. Hive is cooking, but food (with clearly labeled ingredients) is welcome. Also welcome: children, glitter, games, puppies, arts and crafts supplies, musical instruments, hats (silly and otherwise), donations to rad activist causes, robots (non-Sentinel variety), stories (bonus if they're stories of solidarity and/or resisting fascism), dragons (any size). There will be dinner ready around 19:00, but feel free to show up any time after 17:00.
