I was pissed when we picked staff names on CoMux. I wanted to go with Disney chars because I was known as Aladdin to all of my friends, but I was out voted about 137 to one. They wanted to go with drinks and I was going to go with Water. But then someone offered that we should do math because everyone hates math and it would be sort of a dark joke (I hope it was my idea, but I don't remember). Since I'd just gone on one of my huge soapbox speeches, Tangent was an easy fit.
To prevent the Bottomlanders from finding out about us. Those bastards are terrifying, with their zeppelins and their goatees.. The players aren't just protecting the secret, they're protecting the world from the Bottomlanders (and occasionally crossing over to the Bottomland to foil expeditions there that might discover us here on the Topland).
@Insomnia I'd definitely be okay with it if I could figure out how to make it work. I made an account, logged in, clicked the link for season one, episode one, but it just sits there as a little grey screen with dots on it and won't load. Any idea what I'm doing wrong? The ads in the separate space on the screen all play...
@Auspice I have been lucky in that I can get that handled through my GP. It was very obvious I had a long-term stress-related 'I throw up violently the moment I get seriously upset' problem, though, so the anti-anxiety stuff was to help handle/prevent a concrete physical symptom/issue.
