Okay. Just checking in since about 10 newpix ago. Seriously, I think Cueball may also has been following this thread... he's clearly lost the plot.

I'd proffer the hypothesis that the timewarp factors on eitherside of this wormhole viewport are inconsistant.
From the observer side the passage of time expanded from newpix to longpix
on the observee side, it expands to an interval wide enough for Megan/Cueball to walk from centerframe to offframe, and inversly contracts to narrow enough that it progresses from holding a splat of building material to lowering it less than an arms length onto the top of the thing-that-is-made.

Somebody should stat up some NPC sheets for Megan and Cueball. We need to quantify their personalities and building skills. And what better way than rolling 7 x 3d6's? (drop lowest)

Yep, the only time she messed up at all was because of Cueball come to think of it.

I'd proffer the hypothesis that the timewarp factors on eitherside of this wormhole viewport are inconsistant.
From the observer side the passage of time expanded from newpix to longpix
on the observee side, it expands to an interval wide enough for Megan/Cueball to walk from centerframe to offframe, and inversly contracts to narrow enough that it progresses from holding a splat of building material to lowering it less than an arms length onto the top of the thing-that-is-made.

We can rebuild it. We have the technology. We can make it better than it was. Better … stronger … well, maybe not faster.
Well, BlitzGirl is experiencing a bit of a title wave.

Somebody should stat up some NPC sheets for Megan and Cueball. We need to quantify their personalities and building skills. And what better way than rolling 7 x 3d6's? (drop lowest)

are we re-rolling ones?

If not, then we should just do point buy.

Nah,I think we have some bigots who believe in pointillism around here. Better keep it safe for the masses.

Maybe we should use a different system...Fate doesn't use dice to generate characters. Hero system uses ridiculous maths. however, I suggest GURPS, because GURPS.

Let's take Rolemaster. We would be busy modelling Megan and Cueball for at least a week. And BlitzGirl could catch up more easily.
