Now, of course, the most important thing. What do we name the vessel? I'm leaning towards Divine.

I was at the helm, he was at weapons control. I wasn't positive he had connected, so I flew us at some enemies. When the homing missles fired... I knew we were in business.

Update: We got it working! Blew up a few enemy ships before calling it a night. Now if we can get voice chat going at the same time, we'll really be in business.

Not doing great on making Artemis work, mostly cuz I'm too computer-dumb. :( Sorry Jeremy, but thank you for being awesome and doing so much to help me test it. I have some googling to do tomorrow.

If remoting into a distant computer works, would you care to try to join our group?

It's on the list of games I need to play at some point. Getting a group organised for it *is* hard.

Heh. I do not disagree. I have a ton of local nerd friends and I still can't imagine it will happen. I will PM you a link to the file in my dropbox.

Yes, I'd like to test if it would work in a distributed setting. I imagine there would be certain parts of it that would be easier if everyone's looking at the same main screen, but my odds of getting five other folks on the internet together are far better than getting five people to bring their PCs to my house.

I was... "untrusting" in our second attempt, especially when we tried to pass off some more supplies. Captain> "These are allies, Weapons Officer. You can lower shields." "Due respect sir, no." "...WEAPONS, TAKE TARGET LOCK OFF OF ALLIED SHIP." "NO!"

As part of the game you sometimes have to meet up with other ships and exchange supplies. We got one such request and went to rendez-vous. As it was an allied vessel, I, as the weapons officer, didn't see the need to drain our energy reserved by putting up shields. Turns out there's a rare option in the game where enemy spies can take over allied craft. They sent us one last taunting message, self-destructed, and took us with them. From now on, I will always have shields up when approaching any vessel, period.

No, i actually think it's a good warning in case anyone wants to play. There's no real way to know it's an option if someone doesn't tell you, which is why the people let us have another go.

So how did your team die? Or would that be some sort of spoiler?

I do not. I know it was the developer's intention, and I know it isn't literally required, though the game is far easier if everyone on the crew can see the main screen. Would you like to test? I can send you the file and we can see if you can connect. Would people have any interest in trying an international game sometime if it does work?

Awful nice of them, all things considered. Watched a video of it on YouTube, and it looks pretty intense. Do you know if all the computers have to be in the same room?

You sign up for a half-hour demo, and if you die you lose the remainder of your time. The people running the game felt so bad that we died in such a unique way that they gave us a chance to finish out the remainder of our time.

Just played a video game called Artemis Bridge Simulator. Great game if anyone cares. Basically six people play the crew of a starship and go around blasting pirates and doing fetch quests. You need six individual CPUs to play, however. They had a booth at the Convention. My crew managed to die in a way the people running the booth have literally never seen.

Just put it in either the Nalthis discussion thread or the Stormlight one. Whichever is more appropriate

Ooo, someone posted a new WoB to facebook. Sorta interesting. Spoilers for Nalthis/Roshar. Do we have a thread for that or should I make a new one? Seems wasteful somehow to make a thread for one WoB...

Awesome-con today. Local convention of general nerdery. Wearing my mistcloak today. If I have time, I'm gonna make one small addition: Aluminum-lined headband.

Kurk-signal: I recall a recent WoB saying that atium is in the platinum group of metals. Cannot find it on Reddit, Theoryland or the Shard. Thoughts? Does anyone but me remember this comment?
