Last night we played some Archipelago II, ending our session with the crew of the Argosy thawing out their backup crew in a blind panic, paranoid that the machines were taking over (I own The Mystery; they totally are). We had established an enigmatic message encoded in a stream of neutrinos coming from Europa - last week we sent an AI to check it out since we didn't have the reaction mass to divert the whole ship. This week we decoded the message which I (owner of The Mystery) declared read:
KILL YOUR AIS DO NOT SEND AIS HERE DO NOT GO TO EARTH
So, you know, uh oh. Did we just kill the last surviving humans in the solar system?
The other deeply weird thing (this is why playing with other people in an equal-authority system is so fun): Rafael's guy Lt. Cheng is going mad, he's a violent freezer-burned sociopath who is hallucinating about his dead wife. My guy, the watch psychologist, gets him restrained and puts this fMRI device on his head, a diagnostic tool that can be illicitly tuned to basically read people's minds. I illicitly tune. I can see through Cheng's eyes on my monitor. And I see his wife - not a hallucination, but a fucking ghost.
