[center]Robert: [Confrontational]
Image

The total votes added up to this, so this is what we'll do! Being CONFRONTATIONAL has some obvious problems. It typically results in the decay of your SOCIAL LINK. Since this is basically a TUTORIAL section, this isn't a huge problem right now. Fun times.

Next.

Remember (this is your last REMINDER), you can also add any topic you like, so long as it's RELEVANT to the topic at hand! Feel free to continue this CONVERSATION in any reasonable direction you want. It'll be the best way to get your feet wet.

[center]Robert: Say stuff.
Image

I, the author, masterfully incorporate as many requests as possible and run a conversation. You clear right out after that and head back to your TRAIN ROOM. Because this whole thing has been kind of weird. Kind of a shame that girl's not FOND of you though, especially since she is a GIANT ROBOT PILOT and you clearly are not one of those, nor are you ever going to be one. That would be crazy talk because you're pretty sure you failed that APTITUDE TEST years ago.


Next.
Image

So, here you are. You never got a proper introduction, so here we go! Your name is still ROBERT PAULSEN. You are still SIXTEEN YEARS OLD and some months. You and your DAD (that guy over there) have lived together your whole life and you are 2000% POSITIVE that this sudden move is entirely so that he can have a nice JOB in WEST BASE, and not at all because you are, in fact, about to get a GIANT ROBOT of your very own. Neither you nor your father have real RANKS; he is a CLASSICAL HARDWARE CONSULTANT and you are still registered as a NON-COMBATANT, though the distinction is more technical than legal.

You have a variety of INTERESTS to fill the GIANT ROBOT (and MOM)-shaped holes in your life. You are something of a PRE-INVASION FILMS BUFF, focusing on the glories of the THIRTIES AND FORTIES. When available, you also enjoy VIRTS, particularly those with an ATMOSPHERIC BENT. You have great enthusiasm for BIOLOGY and hope that someday you might help mankind reintroduce SOUTHERN HEMISPHERE SPECIES back into the environment. In a more ACADEMIC BENT, you are also known to excel in MECHANICS AND WIRING and you expect that when you arrive at WEST BASE you will be assigned a job in the MAINTENANCE CREW. You do not excel at either HISTORY or SOCIAL STUDIES because you have never been taught either.

In a short while, the TRAIN will arrive at WEST BASE and you will most certainly not be assigned to be a GIANT ROBOT PILOT. For now though, you have a last bit of freedom to get used to being ROBERT. What will you do?

[center]Open and search compartments 01 and 02 like you didn't know what was in there. Make annoying sound effects while doing so.
Image

Well, you check the FIRST compartment, because the SECOND one isn't yours and your FATHER probably wouldn't appreciate you snooping around in his stuff. As you can see, it's just holding a hideaway BED. EFFICIENCY is the motto of humanity nowadays, especially since RESOURCES and SPACE are getting pretty scarce. This is where you slept LAST NIGHT. Before that you had a room almost IDENTICAL to this one, except it was a mirror image and it wasn't on a train. After today, you will probably move into another IDENTICAL ROOM that you and your dad share. You make do. It's not like you've known the world to be any other way, and it's a kind of beauty, all that REPETITION.

Oh hey it's your PHONE!

Use the desktop computer to check the news.
Image

You open up the MOST INTERESTING ARTICLE today! It's terrible news; absolutely the worst! And yet it's not really NEW. The aliens have basically taken over the SOUTHERN HEMISPHERE and now they're jockeying for position in the EQUATORIAL REGIONS, trying to slowly but surely not just wipe out mankind, but all CARBON-BASED LIFE.

Fucking aliens make you sick!!!!!

Robert: Search for more alien-related news.
Image

There’s not really NEWS on the aliens that can be accessed reliably. Wherever the SERVERS are, they’re either poorly maintained or actively SABOTAGED. Either way, you have to think outside the box a little bit to get access to the COOL STUFF.

Like this picture! A DRONE was sent into the remains of SYDNEY last year and some of the pictures got disseminated by some crazy CHINESE TEENAGERS. This is the remains of the OPERA HOUSE. Also, no, this picture wasn’t touched up in the slightest. That’s real color baby. The aliens have that effect on anywhere they get to. Best to stay away. Another reason to not be a PILOT.


Robert: Talk to your father.
Image
Image

Is there anything else you’d like to TALK about?[/center]

[center]Robert: Press for more East Base details.
Image

Come to think of it, you do REMEMBER that this train had a weird CABOOSE. Well, whatever.

It suddenly occurs to you that you live west of WEST BASE and it's odd that you and someone from EAST BASE would be on the same train, but the thought is suppressed quickly because you don't know GEOGRAPHY enough to really understand the implications. If there are any.


Robert: Ask about West Base.
Image

You thought you were free of that NIGHTMARE. There is no GOD. Not that you've had time to BELIEVE in one anyway.


Next.

What will you talk about now? If you END the chat, you should select some actions to do in the room you're in.

[center]Robert: Ask about robots.
Image

ROBOTS sure are uninteresting and dangerous-sounding, huh? Messing with your mind that way, making you all HAPPY and WELL-ADJUSTED. You don't see any reason to eat the LOTUS FLOWERS! Besides, risking your life all the time is even more DANGEROUS than just living in a perpetual WAR ZONE.

Robert: Beg for money.
Image

You beg and plead and negotiate and take hostages an-- Oh!

That went well!

Robert: Hightail it to dining car.
Image

You can't leave. You don't have your PHONE, and no one goes anywhere without a PHONE to tell them pertinent information like STATS and MENUS. That would be foolish and all sorts of stupid shit might happen if you did.

Yes, you did go to the BATHROOM without it. What's your point?

((I hope everyone had a good Christmas!))

[center]Robert: Pick up your phone.
Image
Image
Image

You touch your PHONE and instantly all these STAT MENUS open up, which in turn GIVE you stats to work with beyond basic social capabilities. There's a lot of stats here, but the good news is it's actually all really SIMPLE. Sadly, that fourth tab is just a PHONE GLITCH and cannot be opened, but it doesn't matter because you don't have a ROBOT and you never will.

Your VITALITY is your health, and you currently have a ranking of FOUR, which at your current level (displayed, sadly, in the ROBOT TAB) is rather nice. (DE)VICES is how well you use... devices. Like guns. You're great at that! VIGOR is strength, which is obvious. VIRTS reflects your skill at PROGRAMMING and other virtual stuff that you're bad at. VIEWANCE is your observance, and finally VERVE is your social stat.

The RELATIONSHIPS page describes your RELATIONSHIPS. IT is odd that you will only ever have significant relationships with TWENTY-FIVE people, but you cannot complain. Any more would be too much!

The OTHER page describes some leftovers. GRADES describes your grades, an influence on MONEY you get. CLASS STANDING describes how popular you are in general, with both people you have RELATIONSHIPS with and those you don't! CRIMINALITY is how many laws you've broken, and RANK is your rank at WEST BASE. These are blank because you don't have them yet.

Your SELF-ESTEEM influences how likely it is you'll make major risks. The lower it is, the more you'll doubt yourself. SANITY describes the likelihood of reality being exactly the same as the panels I draw. HERODIPITY is your personal stat. Only you have it. Who knows what personal stats do? LUCK just influences probability. The higher your luck, the better things go for you.

And then there's MONEY. You know how that works, right? Any other questions? Or are we good here?


Robert: Raise Virts Stat to five.
Image

You attempt to do that. Unfortunately, you don't have the time to do a TRAINING MONTAGE, so you decide to just teach. Your PHONE flips out at you for awhile. Probably best not to do that ever again. Your stats will remain as they are.

To increase them... Well, you're not sure how that works. You were BORN with these stats. It probably has to do with GAINING LEVELS, and that's impossible without a robot. This will have some hilarious implications later, if that sort of thing ever comes up. Oh well.


Robert: Leave to try to find the girl.
Image

How serendipitous! She's right there.
