Some people take longer to learn how to behave than others

Over the last few days there has been a new vampire in Toxia who has been picking fights with everyone.

Her first move is to feed on the person she attacks in oder to gain some instant advantage. This really annoys the person she attacks as it goes way beyond "sparring". So the chances are they kill her.

She managed to get me when the lag was bad though and I could barely move so it was really good to see Neon kill her in about 5 seconds without her landing a blow on him. How on earth did she think a level 1 vampire with 0 XP was going to beat a level 10 cybernetic with all the weapons in toxia at its disposal?

I guess she will have to learn to behave politely or get banned in the long run.

be careful who you pick a fight with

Not all cyberpunks have the same group tag.

relgion in toxia

Several times when I have been wandering in the city I have encountered people with religious views. Not always the sort of people you would expect such as demons and angels who are sort of religious by definition.

I keep getting asked if I have a soul. Well I was born not made so if I believe in the more or less standard definitions of what a soul is I should have one. I haven't really ever concerned myself with religion before or after my accident. One demon did tell me that I had a soul and it tasted "metallic" so I guess thats a fair degree of proof.

Religion seems to be on the rise though. Perhaps it isn't surprising when you live in such a terrible place as Toxia... any slight hope of something better will be enough for some people.

DON'T bite me

Especially when I have a flamethrower on my back and a Mac10 in my hand. Sorry about the friendly fire Gomi but that flamethrower is a bit indescriminate to say the least.

Apparently I behaved with honour... I was just looking after myself and my family the same as I always do.

Decartes in Toxian City

The other night I was in the Haven. There was a bunch of humans in there and we fell into a debate as to whether I have a soul. I responded that I was born and then modified rather than made in a factory or lab. They didn't seem to distinguish between a cyborg and a cybernetic though.

Eventually I feel back on Descartes "I think therefore I am" as my only line of defense.

I really should have remembered that some demon once told me my soul tastes "metallic". I guess that would have been proof enough. I did mention that I had heard a theory that we are all just elements of a computer simulation though for some reason they found this very funny.

As an aside is it me or are humans and nekos becoming rare in Toxia?

Its good to be back

It was a bit wierd being back home in Toxia at first. There were a lot of people I didn't recognise and I got several comment along the lines of "check out the new cybernetic".

The Halloween ghosts are cool though I don't quite see what you are meant to do with them. Its good how they were filling in on the backstory too.

The big news is that inspired by Gomi Graves I am going to try to stay in character as much as possible. I guess chatting about weapons sort of counts but thats it... Perkin does not have a life outside of Toxia. The city is about Role Play after all.

So by extension this blog will be in character too from now on unless I really really want to moan about something like I did with the spawn camping.
