Current Events
Updated: 6/20/2016

Heya! I'm your friendly neighborhood Larsinny, a demon here to keep you updated on the current debacles going on within the site! Okay, maybe not debacles... Anyway! The Endymion Plot, our Third Main Plot, has started! We also have our previous plot's part two running next to it for Azores! If you're a new member looking to join the new plot, you will want to choose Endymion. However, if you're interested in our older plot, Azores, you may also join that one aswell. The choice is ultimately up to you! The Dungeon Master of the Azores plot is Grantus and the DM of the current Endymion plot is Philemon.

All templates on the site have been updated, and this also includes the rules aswell. When referring to the rules, please disregard any that say "Old" or "Obsolete" as we are no longer using those rules for the Endymion Plot. Oh, don't be mistaken! I love breaking the rules! But in this case, follow them or erasure!

Be sure to constantly check the update thread for any changes to the boards. You can find it ->Here<-

Due to the fact that Gabe was now decent associates with Selenus, he kind of wanted to help the robot machine as much as he could. Even though they seemed to have everything squared off to a degree. Gabe kind of wondered if there was anything more that he could do. Waiting around a decent area that had a free connected wifi around the cyber cafe, Gabe sat around and waited for Selenus to come by. "I wonder if he got the message, i didnt even wait for a reply. "Gabe was rather brief about it.

Selenus stepped into Vista Square knowing full well that he was getting odd looks, even if he couldn't return the gazes. It was all well and good though, as he understood completely why it was that he gained these looks, and understood it was no-one's fault.

After wandering around for a few minutes, Selenus spotted Gabe waiting for him near the entrance to the local cyber café. He had recieved a message earlier, although it had been a slightly abrupt one. Either way, he'd gotten most of the things he needed to to that day done already, and the one thing left wouldn't be happening until nighttime, so he saw no harm in indulging Gabe..

Selenus ran up to Gabe, slowing down once he got close. "Gabe." He greeted. "You wanted to speak with me?"

Gabe looked around at the stares and smiled. "He's mine people, not to worry..." Gabe would say as he smiled and got down on one knee, rubbing Selenus on the head just as fondly as if he was a real dog. It was the wave of the future, having something electronic that could love you forever over something that had a life span. "After he got most of the eyes to go away, Gabe would pay attention to Selenus. " Yes, today is the day of your appreciation if you didnt get the memo. I got paid not too long ago, and i was wondering if you could use a tune up or any sort of small program of the sort. " Gabe would then stand back up and fold his arms . "i'm not much of a computer genius, and i was going labtop shopping myself . With you here, it can kill two birds in one stone, dont you agree? "

"Gabe... I highly appreciate what you're doing for me, and I admire that you have the kindness needed to go out of your way for someone like this." Selenus said as calmly as he possibly could at the moment. "And I also understand the circumstances under which and the reasons why you said what you just said. These are all the reasons why I'm only going to give you a warning this time."

Selenus used his internal CPU to send Gabe a text message in order to communicate to him what the crowd around them would not need to hear. The message in question read: "Do not call me "yours" again. Even if only to fool passerbys into believing I am your property. I am an individual, not a pet. Thank you for understanding."

With that out of the way, Selenus got back on topic. "Well... if you really insist, I won't deny your kindness. I already have repairs scheduled actually, but it would be nice to get something new installed..." Selenus thought about this for a few brief moments, and finally he knew what he needed most. "Would it be too much to ask to get a wireless router installed? Being able to access the internet through my visual HUD would be incredibly useful."

Gabe took a look at the text message and smiled. "Judging from the text message, you seemed to have a rough past my friend. Don't worry, i wasn't claiming you in any kind of way. Thats not what it was about, and if you understand that much, you shouldn't flip out. Misunderstandings is also apart of being human..." Gabe would say as te tapped his chest over where his heart is. " as well.." Now thats been squared off, h would know better than to use those term of words next time. Maybe he wouldnt even say anything at all then?

Walking into the cafe with Selenus, Gabe would take out a magazine page. "There seems to be a sale thats going on today for the latest hardware. So maybe a nice wireless router might be apart of the sale. Look around and see if you find anything you like.

"Thank you for understanding." Selenus said with appreciation. "Not many people are able to put aside my physical appearance so easily. You're a good man Gabe."

He eagerly followed Gabe into the café, looking around to briefly admire the aesthetic design of it all. He then sat down opposite to whichever chair Gabe would sit on, then take the magazine from his hands using the wires on his tail. After perusing it for a bit, he found one wireless router that seemed potent enough for his systems, yet compact enough to be installed on his body with little problems. He turned the magazine around and pointed at it with one of his three tail-wires, the other two too busy holding the magazine itself. "I think I'd like this one. If the size reference on this magazine is right, it'll fit no problem. Are you sure you're okay with paying for this though? I could easily pay for it myself after taking up a few odd jobs of the kind... the kind that require my skillset. Trust me, they're easier to find than you'd think if you know where to look."

Hmm..... well if you insist, how about we can go half on it then. That way, it wouldn't necessarily cost me an arm and a leg and in a sense of funds, and i would have the satisfaction of helping you out, hopefully you are ok with that?" As soon as Gabe got his answer from Selenus, he would then shift on over to the display of the hard drive. "I think this is the one, check out the size if you want tok be sure. I'll be in the other isle, about three isles away where the labtops are. " abe would say as he shifted over. "I guess thats another thing that we have in common maybe, our choice of work. If odd jobs is what you would describe it as, then maybe ....no i don't think it;s too odd. Maybe, out of the ordinary for someone like me?

"That seems fair." Selenus commented as he followed Gabe further into the Cypher Café. "I should probably warn you though: I don't exactly have a lot of money."

After successfully locating the router in question, Selenus inspected the small device to make sure its size and dimensions were satisfactory. "This seems pretty good..." He observed as he grabbed it and caught up to the gabe. "I don't think you realize what I mean by "odd jobs". Odd jobs call for specific skillsets; I'm a military weapon. I'll let you make the connection."

Gabe was looking around the labtop section and immediately found something that he took a liking to. "This Lenovo Flex seems to do just nicely. It's both a labtop and a tablet, serves two purposes on one screen. " Gabe would say as he made a signal towards the individual that had the key. "Right away sir, please see me at the checking lane when you have finished browsing. " Gabe then went back over to Selenus. "Well, i ended up choosing something overall, maybe you can help me with the windows 10 install. That part always seems to get me stuck..." Gabe would say as he took out his phone and sent a text message to Selenus.

"Does this mean you killed someone? You know, you can't really have it both ways sometimes. You want to be a person, or be considered as one, and yet you say you are a military weapon.But for me, i would just say that you are what your name is, Selenus, an intelligent being. Or maybe I'm misunderstanding something? "

Selenus used his internal CPU to reply to gabe's text message.

"I want to be human, Gabe, but I can't escape the fact that I just am not human. Apparently being intelligent isn't enough, because it didn't stop the government from forcing me to kill and do much worse things when they knew perfectly well that I had a mind and emotions- Hell, they were the ones who gave them to me in the first place. Most people can only show empathy to what looks human due to stigma, dogma and bias. As a machine I am more sensitive to my fellow man than an actual fellow man. Ironic, ain't it?"

How true, Gabe actually felt sorry for Selenus. "Of course, isn't it always like that. The one that wants to be human is more human than robot. Yet, humans are lesser at times.. can even be seen a demons and no one can tell the difference. It's sad, and fearful of what we are capable of, why would you want to be like us? Exposing yourself to.....such corruption." Gabe paused for a moment, but sent another text message immediately after. Nevertheless, you are free. Follow the voice of your own heart. If you are capable of having a persona, you are akin to having something of what we call a soul. As long as your spirit refuses to submit, circuits..programming and all... you are still in control of your own path." Gabe would send that text and Go out to the checkout lane, standing on line.

Not much of a long line today. After i buy it, maybe we can get one of the clerks to help install this? Unless you'll walk me through it?


He tried to concsole Selenus, even though he didnt know too much about the life that the robot went through. However, there is hope

It was like his first meeting with Newman all over again. Selenus replied with another text message. "I want to be human because you are the only ones who've managed to break out of their genetic programming. If what differentiates a human from a regular animal is the fact that a human is able to make decisions for itself and defy its own primal instincts, then it stands to reason that a robot who can only follow instructions listed in its code is no different than an animal that does things simply because their insticts instruct them to do so. A human male's primal instinct is to mate with any potential partner it finds, but no matter how badly half of Tumblr insists otherwise, human males will refrain from doing so because they are human; They know better than their own instinct; They've transcended their instincts. The only reason I'm able to transcend my "instincts" or in this case, my coding, is because I was artificially given the human-exclusive ability of instinct-defiance. My emotions, thoughts and opinions are not those of a robot, but those of a human." Selenus would wait until Gabe finished reading the text message before speaking up in a volume that only Gabe could hear. "That's why I want to be human. It's also the reason why I reject ownership: I am to manage my own life. Do you have any idea what it's like to know that what you're doing, what your "code" tells you to do is wrong, yet have no choice but to follow it?" Selenus paused for a moment, letting his anger and pain flow out of  him before resuming. "I do."


"It would probably be best that one of the clerks install it." Selenus admitted "No offense, but some of the parts in here are slightly vulnerabble when I'm open, and I'd feel more comfortable if they were being managed by someone experienced with this sort of thing." Selenus would stay silent for a few minutes as the line advanced, until he'd suddenly speak up. "Hey... I'm sorry about being so hostile... a few minutes ago. I just... it just brings back really painful memories; But it's not your fault. You keep trying to be nice to me, and I keep being aggressive. I really don't know what's gotten into me; I apologize."

I understand perfectly, we just met after all. It's not like i'm saying i want your full trust without working for it or anything of the sort, that would be ignorant of me. Though, even though i might seem a bit loopy or even crazy to a degree as to how i perceive things, i do mean well with my actions and my words. Trust me, no sense of foul play here, especially if we are on the same page. " For as long as they are on the same side, they should try to play nice and get along, as well as stay out of eachothers way in the more personal of situations. Compromise, that was the name of the game here. After getting in front and paying for his laptop and the software, the clerk walked over with some tools. " I'll upgrade your robot for you sir..."

Gab looked at Selenus and back at the clerk. "in the sense of mine, the only thing i can claim is that he is my friend. But i dont own him. " The clerk stared and thought it was just another one of those people who were extremists towards sentient robotic life. "ok aaa yy.. but i'm going to do my job now."

OOC: You can control the clerk

Selenus was glad to see that Gabe's earlier words weren't empty, at least. He couldn't quite put his tail on it, but there was something about Gabe that reminded him of his former master; Perhaps it was the general aura of energetic philanthropy and wiseness that flowed from them. Not to say that they didn't have their differennces though; For starters, Newman was never as calm and polite as Gabe was, unless he was dealing with politicians or business partners, and he was a bit of a... how do you say this... he was a social idiot. It made Selenus wonder how he ever got so successful as a magnate with the shit people habits he used to display so commonly.

Selenus used his tail to unscrew and remove the several protective layers encasing his internal systems so the clerk could do his job. For some unexplainable reason, it was slightly embarassing...






15 minutes later






Finally, Selenus ran an equipment scan and found the router to be online and operational. Allowing the clerk to finish closing him up, he turned to face Gabe. "I appreciate it. This is going to be way more useful than you think."

"Everything's done, sir. The router's been installed."

"Very good, thank you for your help " Gabe would give off a happy smile after repairs were done. After shaking the hand of the person who was handling Selenus's installation, Gabe woudl thtne mption Selenus to the door. "Well, lets get out of here. They do have free wifi in the area, we could sit in a nearby cafe and start up this computer. I mean, thatt's if you still have any free time. "As a matter of fact, something clicked with Gabe. "Wow, i completly had no sort of consideration for your time, was you busy today? If you was, i'm sorry for calling you out like this withiut any sort of explanation. Though, something good happened today atleast.
