that is a pretty number

deadcity  asked:

What would be a good game to run a version of Richard Matheson's Hell House in?

I’m not at all familiar with the source material, but a quick skim of its Wikipedia article puts me in mind of Tremulus. It’s nominally based on the work of H P Lovecraft, but it’s pretty easy to scrub of the serial numbers and use it for any milieu in the broader “unseen horrors drive people insane” genre.

Ritsu left the room, and his hand lingered on the open edge of the door. He pushed it, until it hit the wall and displayed Mob’s dark and empty room to the world. So that it would not be shut away, so that it would not fade from sight like a shut door might. Ritsu let it live and breathe with the rest of the house, even if it was him alone who had to pass it each day.

hey so guess who’s still crying (read)

The mobile network provider RBB’s phone is connected to confirms that (if the phone is pay as you go) in order for the SIM to stay active, someone needs to perform some kind of chargeable usage (a phone call or a text message, something like that, just topping up the credit should be adequate too).

In other words - we already knew this, but - someone is definitely still maintaining the number, nearly 18 months after OTRA ended and over a year since the phone was switched on for any period of time. (Either by paying a monthly bill or by switching it on and topping up or sending a text.)

[if you want to know why I think the phone is pay as you go and not on a monthly contract, click here. If anyone wants more information, send me an ask. I think I might rewrite my thoughts on that later on anyway.]

Alternian Translations #4

Let’s look at some more of Dammek’s wall:

Gee, Dammek, tell us how you really feel.

Yup. Pretty much the right reaction to seeing drones in the sky.

This image hanging up on that same wall in Dammek’s hive, but the copy I used for translation is a higher-res image that had been released in one of the promos. A few translation notes on this one:

  • This poster has several more spelling errors. The text at the top should read: “For all this pomp and circumstance this seems like a more accurate depiction!” The text on the arrow pointing at the corpses should read: “She’s in this with someone else / the white man??”
  • I’m pretty sure about the number 5,190 - that’s what it looks like, and the characters don’t really match any letters, but we don’t have a lot of samples of numbers in Alternian. The clock on top of the portal in Dammek’s hive appears to read “11:11:…” though, so I think it’s safe to assume they use our numbers.
  • Alternian appears to use double-tick marks for quotes like English, except that the opening quotes appear in subscript instead of in superscript.
  • The line scrawled across the top is interesting. It seems to imply that Trizza’s public persona makes her seem less violent than she really is (or at least less than Dammek believes her to be).
  • Others have speculated that “the white man” is a reference to Doc Scratch, which seems pretty plausible to me.
