Figured she would come along. Riskier, but she didn't strike me as the stay at home granny.
Centcomm 2nd Jul 2013, 6:00 PM edit delete reply

well .. she wanted adventure .. lets home she doesnt get TOO much!
Stormwind13 2nd Jul 2013, 6:02 PM edit delete reply

Be careful what you ask for. Still Connie is trying to CONVINCE herself that it will be good. I know that Mr. Black is going to do everything he can to protect her, but still it could get pretty hairy.
Centcomm 2nd Jul 2013, 6:18 PM edit delete reply

it very well could.. lots of fish are flying around atm....
cattservant 2nd Jul 2013, 9:27 PM edit delete reply

Flying Fish spend most of their time under the surface...
Sheela 2nd Jul 2013, 11:14 PM edit delete reply

Well, Connie will just have to try and break the surface and fly free a little then. :)

"Adventure: [n] Someone you don't know, far away, having a really bad day"
Centcomm 3rd Jul 2013, 5:21 PM edit delete reply

hhaah I like that :D
cattservant 2nd Jul 2013, 6:02 PM edit delete reply

Rising above her prejudices*. A real opportunity for personal growth!

*(Maybe phobia is more accurate.)
Centcomm 3rd Jul 2013, 5:21 PM edit delete reply

phobia fits . just the same way some people view handcuffs..
cattservant 3rd Jul 2013, 5:58 PM edit delete reply

Viewpoints can surely be widely distributed...

New Rome doesn't really care that she would be his property would they? Slave is a slave in their eyes right? If so she should be OK unless that asshole of a Dicktator shows up!
Centcomm 2nd Jul 2013, 6:18 PM edit delete reply

As long as she wears a active inhibitor the roma guards wont give two cents .. unless given a reason to. they might razz her. but they wont really bother too much because4 shes "owned" by Mister black.
Sheela 2nd Jul 2013, 11:16 PM edit delete reply

Yeah, just like how a cop won't harass a dog, as long as it's on a leash.
highlander55 2nd Jul 2013, 6:30 PM edit delete reply

Unless they do a diagnostics scan and see that the collar is *defective* and wants to replace it.
Centcomm 2nd Jul 2013, 6:33 PM edit delete reply

that would be a whole diffrent kettle of fish .. wouldnt it..
Sheela 2nd Jul 2013, 11:17 PM edit delete reply

*perks up*
Fish ? Where ?
Can I have some ? :)
Centcomm 3rd Jul 2013, 5:21 PM edit delete reply

sure - tosses fish :D
cattservant 3rd Jul 2013, 6:22 PM edit delete reply

Is it just me, or are things getting piscatorial around here?
Rashala 2nd Jul 2013, 6:31 PM edit delete reply

I wonder how tedee would react if I showed her ther blueprints I came up with for a mod for her current body.

*puts up schematics for a concealed Internally contained External Armored exoskeleton, with plating rated to resist Anti tank ordinance. Nano adhesive palms and feet for climbing. inbuilt flight system with Anti missile laser and Micro lancet missles. Arm and shoulder mounted weapon points customizable for mission specifics ranging from net launchers to PPCs. Inbuilt wrist blades that vibrate at hypesonic wavelengths allowing them to be 100 times sharper than scaples. All with in built power boosting servo circuits increasing the user's overall physical power by 10 to the 12th power.*
Centcomm 2nd Jul 2013, 6:34 PM edit delete reply

sounds like someone watched Iron man.. :D im not understanding the internal / external bit here.. if this is a body mod wouldnt it be Internal?
velvetsanity 2nd Jul 2013, 6:45 PM edit delete reply

I think the term he's looking for is "subdermal" (just under the skin)
Hornet 3rd Jul 2013, 6:41 AM edit delete reply
Reading his description the intern/external thing is only for the surface plate and accompanying weapon hardpoints. But being an android she doesn't really need that just a hardened skeleton and "organ" housings.
highlander55 2nd Jul 2013, 7:01 PM edit delete reply

All that activated in PMS mode. Battle mode! - Phhht - BFD! Even Luna would turn off the lights and hide.
Sheela 2nd Jul 2013, 11:18 PM edit delete reply

Well, with all those kinda mods .. wouldn't she just become a Combat Drone ?
Rashala 2nd Jul 2013, 11:51 PM edit delete reply

No I mean armor that is hidden Inside and when activated it Slides out from hidden access points around the wearers body Ex Like the helmet in Deadspace Like the armor Major west Dons in the Lost in space movie when he's holding off the alien bugs

A better example of what I mean visually
Google The Guyver
Centcomm 3rd Jul 2013, 5:22 PM edit delete reply

O_O ooh my .. there IS something like that ,.. its called "nano-armor"

Sheela 2nd Jul 2013, 11:19 PM edit delete reply

... she has a peen ?
velvetsanity 3rd Jul 2013, 1:20 AM edit delete reply

cattservant 3rd Jul 2013, 3:34 AM edit delete reply

If she "had a hammer!"
Sheela 3rd Jul 2013, 5:34 AM edit delete reply

Ball Peen Hammer !!

Well, how will he fake an inhibition collar without power when they might check if it works? That must be a very sophisticated collar to fool them...

I hope she will be fine...
cattservant 3rd Jul 2013, 3:31 AM edit delete reply

They have Dr. Silver with them!
Sheela 3rd Jul 2013, 5:35 AM edit delete reply

True, she should be able to make a rather sophisticated collar, if she puts her mind to it.
Heck, she could even make it do something else, like .. boosting Connie's sensor suite. That could be very useful.
In fact, the more I think of it, the more suited Dr. Silver is to make it and make sure it won't actually hurt an android, considering her penchant for android rights.
mjkj 3rd Jul 2013, 5:45 AM edit delete reply

Yeah, that is true -- she should be able to make a collar like that -- even make one that defends her from new roman abduction...
Hornet 3rd Jul 2013, 9:41 AM edit delete reply
Should be quite simple as you can leave all the inner bits and just remove the bit that actually connects with the droid.
Sheela 3rd Jul 2013, 9:45 AM edit delete reply

Well, I don't know about simple .. if someone checks the fake inhibitor collar more closely, it should still give the correct answers.
Centcomm 3rd Jul 2013, 5:22 PM edit delete reply

thats the plan..
KarToon12 3rd Jul 2013, 2:17 PM edit delete reply

Trust me; I have an eyepatch.
Centcomm 3rd Jul 2013, 5:24 PM edit delete reply

Pirates have eyepatches :D true?
Stormwind13 3rd Jul 2013, 2:27 PM edit delete reply

To me, it sounds like Mr. Black's plan is to put a collar on Connie that has all the parts working; however, the power is so turned down that it doesn't have any bite (panel 5, "No it wouldn't have any real juice to it").
So it would pass a scanner test as being operational, but wouldn't actually be able to direct Connie's actions.
At least that is how I'm reading it.
Centcomm 3rd Jul 2013, 5:23 PM edit delete reply

grins ... :D
Don B. 3rd Jul 2013, 6:11 PM edit delete reply
I seem to remember Lynn being saddled with a remote restraint (collar...bracelet?) that Aeneas tampered with. Gives some kind of output to let Lynn know it's been activated and let her act accordingly without actually being incapacitated. The tech may be different but I see no reason that the same couldn't be done to this collar. With Veronica involved there will be more to the modification than that, I'm sure. It would be a good place to start.
mjkj 3rd Jul 2013, 2:39 PM edit delete reply

OT: Why does Mr. Black have an eye patch? I believe he could easily have a replacement eye inserted with better optics than the original one...
highlander55 3rd Jul 2013, 5:15 PM edit delete reply

That's why you take the spoon out before drinking your coffee in the morning! <snicker>
Centcomm 3rd Jul 2013, 5:23 PM edit delete reply

yeah .. funny about that huh.
Chris D 3rd Oct 2015, 4:03 AM edit delete reply
Hmm. One moment sir. It seems our scanners have detected your sexbot's inhibitor collar is malfunctioning. Ah, there we are. Fixed and registered so we can immediately know if it malfunctions again. Welcome to Nova Roma sir, please enjoy your stay.

Ah.. thank you officer.. oh, hm, hey, look over there, is that a cloud? *STABSTABSTABSTABSTAB!*
