6 August, 2017

Let's go up to the labTo understand what is going on here, you had best read the first PinkCat: Running in the Shade post, but short summary, this is a campaign report for our Shadowrun campaign set in NorCal through the filter of a cartoon made by one of the team members.

Episode Thirty: Bad Science

Guest Starring: Clawz, Double Up, and Toru.

Pink get word that one of the local labs in doing cruel animal experimentation and sets about mobilizing the school’s clubs to protest against such, easy for the environment club less so for the programming group.  The student groups include a variety of fan and supporter created characters, PinkCat has her own channel for Running the Shade and other projects and this is a good chance to thank them for their fandom.  The organized protest include pickets, virtual and actual, media and blogging offensives, really a light introduction to activism.  The lab tries to fight back with experts, their own media offensive and bribery.  But exposing the bribes finally turns the tables on the lab and they knuckle under and agree to treat their animals humanely.  The protestors retire, but keep the pressure up via blogs and the media.  Trust by verify.

1 August, 2017

So regal, so cuteVoddick grabbed another mug of ale as the platter went by.  “It is lovely to actually get a chance to enjoy a festival.”

Gollaon played a short tune on his flute and then said, “Indeed.  Good to be able to enjoy the fruits of our work for once.”

“So true, the town is safe, the beer is tasty and the music is good,” said Voddick with a broad smile.

“A welcome diversion before we return to work.”

“I will drink to that.”

Harvest Crown

These crowns are made of woven plants newly harvested and woven into patterns traditional to the community making them.  Sometimes there is only one awarded, sometimes two, but almost never more than that.  The crowns remain fresh and strong for a year and then suddenly become dry and brittle, breaking apart at the slightest touch.
