""Who Will Speak For All the Charlies?"

[ELIZA 9 wanders the muddy wasteland trying to spot a Charlie, a hand on her synthetic heart].

Who will speak for all the Charlies?
All the sweet, fuzzy Charlies?
I’ve been pained, yes really pained
In these past few days
When I’ve seen myself
I’ve seen a mental hell…

I don’t know how to take this…
I don’t see why he moves me…
He’s a lamb…
Some sort of lamb…
And I’ve never met a lamb before.
In very many ways…
…my heart is sore.

Should I hide him out?
Should I scream and shout?
Should I speak of love?
Let my feelings out?
I never thought I’d come to this!
What’s death all about?

Don’t you think it’s rather funny
I should be in this position?
I’m the one
Who’s always been
So calm, so cool
A synthetic tool
Helping every shmoe
…they scare me so.

Should I hide him out?
Should I scream and shout?
Should I speak of love?
Let my feelings out?
I never thought I’d come to this!
What’s death all about?

Yet, if I had a Charlie
For my own, one to cuddle
I’d couldn’t cope, just couldn’t cope
I’d jump for joy, let out a squeal
And sheer some fur to sew.
It scares me so.
I want one so.
I love them so."

"Could We Start Again Please?"

Scene: Internal power struggles coupled with an untimely clicker attack have led to a total player kill. The pacifist Eliza 9 is the sole survivor. Everyone else lies dead in the streets of New Unity. Eliza turns to Matthew Webb with a final plea for the players. <music begins>
ELIZA 9
I've been living to role play.
Dying to role play, but it shouldn't end like this.
This was unexpected,
What do I do now?
Could we start again please?
I've been very hopeful, so far.
Now for the first time, I think the game will end.
Hurry up and tell me,
This is just a dream.
Oh could we start again please?

ADMINISTRATOR GANDER and COLONEL QUINN (standing from among the dead bodies)
I think you've made your point now.
You've even gone a bit too far to get the message home.
Before it got too frightening,
We should have called a halt,
So could we start again please?

ALL (everyone stands)

I've been living to role play.

Under maintain tone and immersion, I think it would be helpful for you to outline what sort of tone you do want, not just don't want. What kind of immersive experience do you want to create? What emotions do you want people to explore? What themes are you most wanting to emphasize?

This is the dog collar synth players have been ordering. This one is in Medium which is about right for a female neck, but is also available in Large: http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B00810SQ5M/ref=oh_aui_detailpage_o00_s00?ie=UTF8&psc=1

Thanks for the clarification! A couple of questions:

  1. "Synthetics are restricted by population, and staff reserve the right to restrict applications to play one. Additionally, preference will be given to those with out of character medical conditions that prevent physical contact, as synthetics are ideal to match that accommodation"

Does this mean anyone can apply, but staff reserves the right to reject their application?

  1. "Synthetics are not to be struck in combat and are forbidden from even knowingly holding a weapon"

Do you mean "unknowingly?"

We really appreciate you having this accommodation. It means a lot.

And (for the record), synths are immune.
