Veins of the End

How small of a world is this, socially speaking? When these three walk into a bar, are they going to recognize each other?

If either of them knew Julia Singer personally, or could recognize her face after 10+ years, we need to talk about that ASAP please.

As a trades person, Julius works on cyborgs regularly, but I'm not going to presume Elys or Adam have been to the REPAIR shop unless you tell me otherwise. If they have been customers, I need to know if they paid cash or trade, what pronoun they use for Julius, and if they gave her a coat. It wouldn't have to be the coat she's wearing now, but the distinction would be important to her.

Also, I apologize for the mega post. It took much longer than desired to get my agoraphobic character from Point A to Point B. She didn't want to go out her door when there was work and food inside it.

Adam himself is rather reclusive, I mean, his one friend down here currently is a cat. Even when he wasn't cyborg, he was still pretty reclusive given his job. Not sure how many would know him, unless matters like this are publicized here. If anyone, maybe Elys would have heard something. Otherwise he just stands out by being some weird tall silver-haired cyborg.

Edit: Also fixed a goof on Adam's height. Must have been late.
Honor and arrogance are two sides of the same coin. We don't need standards like "honor," we just need mutual respect, and to do right by ourselves, as well as others.

Socially speaking, I would say the three either only vaguely know each other or are new to each other. My character remembers Julia but probably wouldn't recognize her at first glance or be like the kind who will keep looking at someone wondering if they know them or not.

Also the person who modded the ancient golem with modern technology to form Elys body was basically Julius' former teacher/master. So I'd guess Elys may know Julius by name but hasn't really seen her much. Regarding pronouns, I guess Elys would refer to Julius as "them" as Julius gender is unknown to her or she generally refers to people she doesn't know well as "they/them".

Regarding Adam I would say Elys knows his face or figure but not his personality as she has only seen him around town.

I'll continue to be careful with using pronouns in game, but out of character, I'm sticking with female pronouns for Julius.

MartinVole: Wow, the height I guessed at was close. I thought your 2'x" might have been in meters.

Julius definitely wouldn't recognize him from behind with a cloak and helm, but from the front, that's a body she'd remember seeing in town. He's an experimental prototype, and while she wouldn't know how he got that way, she'd be very curious about his construction. Occupational interest. Intensely, unnervingly curious; but equally unwilling to ask him about it outside of her shop, because she is squishy and cyborgs aren't. Also, people generally don't like personal questions coming from strangers that they don't mind coming from doctors. If he still has that human sense, that pressure on the back of the neck and raised hairs that alert us someone is watching, she'd be setting it off anytime they passed on the street. But as he is a weird, intimidating freak of a cyborg, he probably gets that all the time, right? What is one more set of eyes.

Aniihya: Julius's master (who needs a name) would have been able to cast molds off her body for an expensive custom skin job. She could have her original fingerprints, for example. He could also cut and transfer her hair, so she could style it as she normally would. If he was allowed to keep the molds to reuse, the price would be cheaper, but she might encounter another cyborg with her face, maybe with different coloring. He would have been able to edit out small details before reusing, so her copy wouldn't have her fingerprints.

Julius would be 26 years old when Elys died. As an apprentice, Julius probably did the actual pouring for Elys's artificial skin, may have watched or participated in any paint retouching necessary for realistic skin tone, and was likely a second set of hands for assembling modern upgrades and afixing them to the golem core. The price would jump up to have a master exclusively work on a project without leaning on help from an apprentice, and it would take 3-4 days longer. As the apprentice work would happen at the shop, if Elys's foster father wanted to see her soul stone inserted in the privacy of his own home, away from extra eyes, Julius wouldn't have seen Elys awaken.

It depends how secretive Elys's foster father would want to be, and how much he was willing to invest in her when he knew he had to send her away. Let me know what Elys's foster father would have chosen.

If Julius was allowed to work on the commission, she'd definitely recognize work from 4 years ago.

Let's just say that Julius wasn't there when Elys awakened which is why Elys has a hard time recognizing her. And maybe Julius remembers Elys from back then. But Elys never stops by the shop as nothing has taken damage substantial enough for her to go to the shop.

Yay, we have a soundtrack!

Go ahead and jump. Julius is eavesdropping. If Elys and Adam leave the bar before Julius has found an excuse to take the day off and play in the Veins, there will be a surprise on the shop door encouraging Julius to leave for a bit.

I think Julius is jumping to conclusions because Elys didn't lose comrades out of lack of respect or lack of valuing them but because the Veins can be so dangerous. It is practically a given that only the most hardened of adventurers can survive in the Veins.

Julius is unfairly judging everyone, no doubt. For as short of time as she's been observing them, her first impressions aren't going to be fair to anyone. Who can possibly know anything important about a person's character after five minutes of people watching in a bar? Their casual talk of violence and killing people makes her feel unsafe, and she's justifying to herself why hanging with this crowd isn't a smart play, even if she is genuinely curious about these people and their plans for adventuring. Coming from someone who blows off steam in the Veins, it is a bit hypocritical that she's drawing the line between the risk she takes alone versus the risk of being in the group. But she hasn't lost body parts or died yet. Whether that is by luck or strategy, she's not going to jinx it.

She's also not saying any of this shit out loud.

Hey, I know there have been posts on the roleplay, but I can't see them. I've tried to come at them from a couple angles, but I keep getting the setting page with 12 directions (north, south, up, down, etc.) instead of the post history. Anyone else getting this error?

Found a good link for post history. I posted a reply.

I got one Error 502 today, and then found I couldn't tag characters on my post.

If these errors are all in the roleplay, maybe we need to move it here, to the forum?

In the ongoing saga of errors, I'm missing half the tabs on the roleplay main page. No Settings, Characters or History. Universes>Veins of the End>Settings is a working link. Scrolling down the main page passed the introductions also has the posts, or using the Read from the Beginning button gets you there. I'm hoping RPG is just trying to streamline the format.

That's actually because those tabs were removed and were consolidated into the Home and Forum tabs. I'm also pretty sure that Introductions are automatically hidden behind a button to active authors.
