teenagers. Says it all.

I hate to say it, but I was not sure what to expect when we saw him. Evidently he as not as mature as I thought.

If he can get out of the room then it will get interesting. Somehow, considering how many bad-asses are in there, he is going down without his dignity intact. Question is, who takes him down? Kali, Dec, Max,Acantha, anyone else?
Sheela 23rd Mar 2015, 1:18 AM edit delete reply

Maybe Lynn will take him down?

You know so far you have almost duplicated the life of Gaius Julius Caesar Augustus Germanicus, Caligula in common terms. However he is a bit overdue for his Praetorian guard to kill him.

It now seems that SFB now has someone that is in close competition for the title. I did ask what would happen if the Homer Simpson IQ alike showed up well I found out.

The only person who can save this situation that I can see is Lynn. If she stops Leo from the assassination attempt (possibly getting wounded in the process) she'll change the whole legal set up (Hero of Nova Roma - instant citizen/noble) plus can probably keep Kyle from being instantly vaporized (with help from Arcantha) so he'll be able to help the city AI.
Aurora 22nd Mar 2015, 11:34 PM edit delete reply
*Alarms blaring in the background* IDIOT ALERT!!! IDIOT ALERT!!! ALL CASSIANS ARE GIVEN ORDERS TO ELIMINATE THIS LOOSE END!

Kyle, do you not know the meaning of 'undercover agent'? It means don't go through the trouble of sneaking into enemy territory if you're just going to *insert expletive* wave a gun in the air and yell "I'm a spy! Kill me now!"... I'm sure Rose could have said that more eloquently with her massive range of figurative and explicit language but I'm still face palming myself over here at the sheer idiocy of both Decimus and Kyle here...
Pirtnac 22nd Mar 2015, 11:40 PM edit delete reply
Toodles Kyle, it was "nice" knowing you. Try not to get any of your internals on your girlfriend, she's having a bad day as it is. Also, please don't shoot Maxus, we need him.

The ONLY possible helpful outcome I can see here is if he's daydreaming, Pulp Fiction style, and in a few moments we get to see him snap back to reality as someone asks him for more salt. My one tiny thread of hope for this is that he's holding a gun. If they let first day help be next to the prince unsearched, he'd have been dead long before now. Hell, if they let first day help in armed, both rescue teams could have just signed up as maids. The plot thus far would have largely revolved around the difficulties getting TeeDee in to a frilly skirt, but still.

Also, if this is real his timing is moronic. If he wanted to threaten the prince, at least do it when his personal guardian is NOT in arms reach to fling him out of the way. Hell, by standing next to Lynn he's standing next to Acantha. If it was just Decimus people may hesitate a moment and let stupid take care of crazy, but he's in range of someone EVERYONE wants to protect. Hell, Acantha's personal guard might be about to blow Kyle's head off about now.
Morituri 23rd Mar 2015, 12:54 AM edit delete reply
If this is what Kyle is actually doing, he's really being excessively stupid. In fact, if he was going to pull a gun on Decimus, in the presence of a Cassian, his only effective move was to fire it before speaking.

He was supposed to help Aneas. He's the guy with the 'leet hacking skills and guidance from Rose about where and how to apply them. And many of those repairs can be made in out-of-sight, unwatched places. He could have done that.

Had he done exactly that, Aneas, in a non-crazy state, would take charge of the situation - and Aneas would send him and Lynn home safe, remove Jerkface from power, and install Acantha on the throne. That was really the main possible winning move for him.

This? This doesn't play to his strengths, severely underestimates the Prince's guards, and completely ignores their chances of surviving all the chaos he's just unleashed. This is a Bad Plan.

Lynn is also being stupid, although she has the excuse of being shocked to see him. She spoke his name. D'oh! Now everybody knows that he's connected with her.
Lukkai 23rd Mar 2015, 8:10 PM edit delete reply
Lynn calling him by name might actually be the one single thing that saves his life, at least temporarily.

If she knows him and more importantly likes him, he's possibly useful as a hostage to threaten her with. Maybe even force her into marriage? Well, at least putting a leash on her. All the while not doing anything to her directly that could invoke further wrath from Cent.
Sheela 23rd Mar 2015, 1:25 AM edit delete reply

Ahh, what a fine nominee for a Darwin award we have here. :)
I'm starting to understand why Centcomm despise him so much.

On the other hand, how the heck did he get a gun in there ?
Timotheus 23rd Mar 2015, 1:30 AM edit delete reply

It was in one of the covered dishes, maybe? Or baked in a pie?
Lukkai 23rd Mar 2015, 8:12 PM edit delete reply
With another agent being inserted long term and on a list of trusted servants, there's a number of possibilities he could have gotten that gun in. Though I'm putting my money on him doing so without her knowledge and just profiting on the guards being rather lax with controls, knowing there's only trusted servants and personal guests in the room and Kali always around the prince anyway.
Sheela 24th Mar 2015, 6:14 PM edit delete reply

Oh come now, how the heck did someone just hired, get a gun in there.
Any even half competent security would have frisked him half a bazillion times before he got up there.

Sleel 23rd Mar 2015, 3:48 AM edit delete reply

Well, initial reactions are: Goodbye Kyle. We barely got to know you. What with Kali sitting right there, or standing. And even if she failed to stop you and you shot Prince Whack-a-doodle his failsafes taking out the city = goodbye Kyle, we barely knew you.

But our creators being the nefarious and evil creatures that they are *eyes Rose*, other reactions are you are about to be disarmed. And possible disarmed, among other "dis's" while handed to the tender mercies of yon "priest" and/or Kali's Kabal.
So yeah. Ya's probably gonna get enrolled in a pretty shitty curriculum shortly. Of one kind or another.

*eyes Rose* Not that I'm saying he dun deserve it for this. This is about as dumb as a bag of hammers as it gets. And he requires ....... edification.
Draginbeard 23rd Mar 2015, 7:21 AM edit delete reply

Pretty much what In thinking too. There is something else we arent seeing yet in play here. Youthful enthusiasm can be reckless, but its usually encouraged along through beforehand information (good or bad).

Perhaps something was slipped into the food to deal with the human elements (Kyle was assigned to the kitchens I think), and since he is technically knowledgeable, maybe he has with him an inhibiting device or or some fail safe geared toward androids that might slow down Kali.

Just because he isnt following Roses instructions doesnt mean he isn't following a plan. Either way, Im not ready to write Kyle off just yet.
MirrorField 24th Mar 2015, 7:53 AM edit delete reply
Indeed. He's smart and good hacker. Despite the fact that he's no military, he must be aware of Kali's potential power along the situation he's in. I *could* see him underestimating those vague "contigencies" and simply pulling the trigger on the douchebag (which in itself might not be that bad of a plan), but I think he will have thought step or two ahead. Maybe insufficiently, but nevertheless... One possibility I could see here would be deadman-switched suicide vest large enough to kill everyone in the room and using the douchebag as a hostage...

If by Rose you mean the authoress, then I see you point. If you mean Rose the character, she was trying VERY hard to not get Kyle to be this stupid and he blew her off and cut her off (can he hang up on a mental channel? If so that seems to be what he did). I mean, just how STUPID can you get? :-P

Ah, but at least Kyle won't be dropped behind the bus, but rather in front of it so Centcomm can run him over.

He was not even near them yet.

Quite seriously: Even if he has anything planned to get him and Lynn out of this room and of the city (I heavily doubt he has. And even if, has definitely not planned past this first room.), he's automatically failed that objective now. There's practically no way he could get anywhere near Aeneas now. There'd be only one single, very slim chance. And I don't think he even knows of that way.

Here's a question I've been meaning to ask- By what method do you come up with the particular Tarot representation for each page title? Is it by straight correspondence between the action on the page and the attributes of the card (We'll call that manual) or do you throw some type of a reading for each page and let the mysterious forces of the Universe decide? (I would think of that as automatic)
Centcomm 23rd Mar 2015, 4:16 PM edit delete reply

the meaning of the title refers to the general action on the page in question :D and to a extent what character is represented :D
Kitty 23rd Mar 2015, 3:35 PM edit delete reply
Well. Didn't see THAT coming. o.0

Though I admit, "Prince Genefuck" is a brilliant name. If Dec chokes on his own tongue trying to get the order to kill out of his mouth, and Kyle's gun moves away from a direct-to-prince line of fire, Kyle MIGHT survive.

But I wouldn't bet the farm on it.

There's more to this seemingly stupid stunt than meets the eye. Kyle's smarter than this despite his age, besides no one in their right mind would threaten a head of state with his human and android bodyguards in the same room. IMO he's getting a distractional head start on the shit that's about to hit the fan.

He's also a teenager in the throes of testosterone poisoning whose girlfriend happens to currently be a political prisoner. He's thinking with the wrong head and going suicidally macho.

Shields only work when they are pointed in the direction that the poo is being flung from.
And I think Kyle just started flinging from the flank!

CptKerion 23rd Mar 2015, 8:55 PM edit delete reply
I'm going to relate two stories from my tabletop gaming experience here.

First is an alternity one.
I was playing a CQC combat spec guarding an important NPC (politician who was championing the same cause I was fighting for) and one of the other players, a free agent and apparently working for the enemy pulled his pistol on the guy and bothered to snap off a line "Say goodnight sweetheart."
Did you know that in the amount of time it takes to say that a CQC spec combat spec can remove the safety, raise, and squeeze 12 shots out of an automatic shotgun?
Apparently he did not.
Needless to say they buried him in the mop bucket used to clean him up.
Kyle is that guy, but dumber because he doesn't seem to intend to shoot immediately afterwards.

The second comes from Pathfinder.
I am DMing. The guy they think is the big boss is giving a speech from behind a wall of royal guardsmen... and this level 1 rogue charges them shouting "YOU WILL DIE TYRANT!" at the top of his lungs... you know, if he had just been silent he would've only been knocked out... but no, he had to scream that. Needless to say the first guard piked him and that ended that.

Kyle is that guy now.

My bet, Kyle, in the words of the demoman "They're gonna have to bury you in a soup can!"
Kitty 24th Mar 2015, 3:06 PM edit delete reply
It's possible that Kyle thought he could waltz in, brandish a gun (likely he can't actually SEE any other guns in the room - which doesn't mean they aren't there) and think that by threatening the prince, he can safely waltz back out with Lynn on his arm, and then run for it once they're outside the room. After all, it works on action/adventure vids, right? ;)

On the other hand, how many times have we all been surprised by events in this story? Don't wanna assume too much here.
Lukkai 24th Mar 2015, 6:28 PM edit delete reply
That's basically my theory about the whole "But Kyle is smarter than that!" argument. What does he know about the "real world" in terms of how hostage situations actually work.
