Centcomm 5th Nov 2012, 9:12 PM edit delete reply

yep .. I think something bothered her .. dont you?
cattservant 5th Nov 2012, 9:38 PM edit delete reply

She looks like a person who has just had a sudden insight about herding cats...

(I wouldn't be surprised to learn that Kali has her own secret and very fast transportation tucked away somewhere convenient.)
Centcomm 5th Nov 2012, 9:56 PM edit delete reply

hehe... probably

Ummm, okay, Kali is a lot more scary than I first imagined. She even has Elvira font thoughts!

I imagine internal conflict with established protocol, something like that. This usually ends with the master destined to have a really bad final scene.
Centcomm 5th Nov 2012, 11:04 PM edit delete reply

oh yes .. you dont want to tick off your underlings.. :D

Um, when Kali the android seeks The Force (or whatever the heck she tapped into) to calm their inner self down and get a grip, you know that Acantha is absolutely right!

Be afraid. Be very afraid!
Centcomm 5th Nov 2012, 11:04 PM edit delete reply

exactly .. :D
Rashala 5th Nov 2012, 11:08 PM edit delete reply

aaaannnnnnnddd Ancatha is right....and things gets MUch MUCH more.........sideways
Centcomm 5th Nov 2012, 11:20 PM edit delete reply

hehe yep sideways indeed.. Acantha knows Kali...

What really scares me is that I've met real life people who have to do that. It's Cognitive Behavioral Therapy meets Godzilla control freak.
Centcomm 6th Nov 2012, 8:42 AM edit delete reply

Yep.. Kali isnt a happy Andriod...

Hello, Bravo. I am one of those people. Unfortunately.

Fortunately, there are various chemical ways to control the impulses, one of which I am successfully using for therapy. Barring a software patch for an AI, I can see how a mantra is one of the few ways to control "extreme" behavior.

"The next person she sees is <i>so fucked</i>". That is an awesome assessment. Cent, Rose - you rock.
Centcomm 17th Nov 2012, 9:59 PM edit delete reply

:D thank you speaking for myself - Rose is very awesome when it comes to the dialouge here and her input has a huge effect - it wouldnt be the same wityhout her!
McHozers 6th Nov 2012, 8:22 AM edit delete reply

I need to learn that "control control control" chant...
Centcomm 6th Nov 2012, 8:53 AM edit delete reply

Its a helpful one trust me :D
Kali is far more complex than she looks :D
cattservant 6th Nov 2012, 11:55 AM edit delete reply

And she looks pretty complex...
KarToon12 6th Nov 2012, 3:35 PM edit delete reply

Let's hope the next person she sees is that monster... ):>
Centcomm 6th Nov 2012, 3:45 PM edit delete reply

Monster indeed... Although that might be even more frustrating for Kali.
Dragonrider 6th Nov 2012, 5:54 PM edit delete reply

Afraid Kali is having a, call it crisis of conscience, or possibly a conflict of programming performed when she was created. Someone has attacked the royal family and she has allowed them to live. Possibly in one of his saner moments Aeneas managed to insert a sub routine to include a command to protect anyone who protected Acantha in times of extreme danger. Lynnn certainly did that. Now then ladies I suggest you both dress warmly and haul your butts out of dodge it ain't time to sing a chorus of "Tomorrow" because when TweedleDee the wonder Prince wakes up he is gonna go 15 shades of deep doo-doo on Lynn and if she's lucky she gets thrown to the spare parts bin.
Rashala 6th Nov 2012, 7:13 PM edit delete reply

I agree in part with Dragon here, though I doubt its a subroutine more likely a baser loyalty function IE her loyalties are to Nova Roma First... the emperor and royal family second...anyoen else a distant thrid......And in this case Number 2 put number one at raisk and her primariy routines are having a fit.

Also Question...Kali personality wise does she...eskew Well relations with people like TD or does she well have someone liek Ada?
Centcomm 6th Nov 2012, 7:18 PM edit delete reply

OK something I can actually answer , Sorry guys im trying to not give spoilers .. No Kali has no lovers , no sex partners she has no physical or emotional need for them.
its just her mindset. she is Duty Dedicated. there are things that make her sad ./ happy ect however getting her to "SHOW" emotion is like thawing antartica with a zippo lighter.

@Dragon - Lynn got bennies yes, note Kali did not break her in half. I suggest checking her conversations in previous pages :D , Kali is a very intresting Charcter in many many ways.

** EDIT - btw there is a search function below . if you enter someones name ie "Lynn" or "Kali" it will yank up a list with the pages they are on .. ( im not sure if i got all the tags right but i tried )
Dragonrider 6th Nov 2012, 7:43 PM edit delete reply

Really not asking for spoilers, I have a Baaaadd habit of second guessing and trying to out plot the plotters. Something in an earlier lifetime makes me do it.
Centcomm 6th Nov 2012, 7:55 PM edit delete reply

well hopfully we can keep you guessing :D
cattservant 6th Nov 2012, 8:43 PM edit delete reply

So, who controls android development and production in Nova Roma?
CyberSkull 8th Nov 2012, 10:34 PM edit delete reply

I'm fairly sure that urge to kill file is rapidly approaching the filesystem size limit.
Centcomm 8th Nov 2012, 10:39 PM edit delete reply

Oh she reached her buffer size .. oh yes she did !
CyberSkull 12th Nov 2012, 5:22 AM edit delete reply

That was a minor release. The main graph is still growing and recursing itself.
velvetsanity 12th Apr 2013, 3:36 PM edit delete reply

If you put Kali in a body like Dolly's, I'd gladly give her a massage to help her relax...

And yes, I mean exactly that, nothing more. Anything beyond that would happen only if she moved to initiate it. Although, honestly, I have a feeling she'd be *very* appreciative.
Centcomm 12th Apr 2013, 3:50 PM edit delete reply

I think you are right .. she probably would enjoy it.. or she would enjoy beating the hell out of a punching bag...
velvetsanity 13th Apr 2013, 6:37 AM edit delete reply

As long as the "punching bag" is a literal one, located in a gym or something like that. ^_^
ResonantStorm 8th Dec 2015, 4:46 PM edit delete reply
Ooh, I have a theory relating to that little bit of Kali regaining control.
