The Improbable Island Outpost Defence Council was formed in response to the possibility of monsters attacking Outposts, because of the Watcher's Suspiciously Specific Denial in her MoTD.
Its members are currently as follows I think it is safe to say the membership has greatly expanded, but the following were there from the start ( - duphenix):
Since then several others have stepped up to help with coordinating, if you are volunteering, or know someone who is working on it (or have been thrust into it) please added your name here:
Please add Clan contacts if you know of any, ( - duphenix)
Each Clan has been assigned to protect an outpost, as follows
NewHome-DICE; Kittania-ROGUE; IC-GERM and MAAT; New Pittsburgh-TAMED; SquatHole-AIB; Pleasantville-part of QQQ, and the crew of the Jackalope
; AceHigh-DICE; and CyberCity 404-QQQ
Recently, as late as last night, it was hinted at by certain improbably high persons that we may only have 'bout a week to prepare. Common Ground seems to be the defacto location to get the latest information, and for anyone looking for the whole story, there is a set of scrolls containing an improbably correct transcript in a pavilion there.
A summary of, followed by the minutes for the first Council meeting are presented below.
The meeting was sparked by the Watcher's MoTD. It was suggested that the Watcher's primary interest is not the welfre of the contestants, and thus might well be lying. Duphenix suggested that contestants should form a militia, able to pull together in the event of an attack on an outpost and repel it in an organised manner. It was agreed that the comm tent should be used if available, and otherwise any Jokers with teleportation abilities would be requested to assist communication between Outposts. Failing this, we will use KittyMorph runners. Kittania and Pleasantville were priorities due to their cooking facilities. Other suggestions were of Midget beserkers and the use of humans' free grenades.
2009-12-29 21:28:52: The Once Wiise Ashtu wanders in, yawning and spitting out pieces of chronosphere. "Hey, has anybody else heard about the Watcher's latest MoTD? And does it scare you as much as it scares me?"
2009-12-29 21:31:59: Returning Contestant Darael nods at Ashtu's first question, then writes an answer to the second on his slate: "I don't know, ho much does it scare you?"
2009-12-29 21:33:43: Returning Contestant Darael glares at a typo gremlin so hard that it begins to smoke.
2009-12-29 21:37:26: Notable Badass Kestrel's dragon flits in, and starts herding the unfortunate gremlin to the bar, where it can find a good job. He frowns a little at Darael, then flies over to greet him.
2009-12-29 21:39:29: Bibliophile Lemm reads the MoTD but doesn't find it that frightening, not very reassuring either but. . .
2009-12-29 21:45:24: The Once Wiise Ashtu: Well, if somebody like, oh, say, the president of the universe said that to me, I would sleep easy - but the Watcher isn't exactly known for watching out for our welfare.
2009-12-29 21:45:34: Neckbiter Joseph Kemys steps in, and walks over to Lemm. "Hey there, Lemm."
2009-12-29 21:45:54: Neckbiter Joseph Kemys waves to Ashtu.
2009-12-29 21:57:25: The Once Wiise Ashtu waves back to NeckbiterJK, and continues "I might even go so far as to say that she would probably actually lie to us, if it meant better ratings." He pauses.
2009-12-29 21:57:36: The Once Wiise Ashtu "Um, you don't think she's listening, do you?"
2009-12-29 21:59:42: The Once Wiise Ashtu appears to be listening to something in the momentary silence; he suddenly leaps as if bitten and runs out the gate screaming.
2009-12-29 22:00:57: Technical Sergeant Rutheford is the former president of the U.S.
2009-12-29 22:14:44: Lance Corporal Da Spook: The watcher is lying. I'm sure of it.
2009-12-29 22:15:05: Returning Contestant Darael twitches. He hasn't moved for half an hour or so. He wonders why he was starting into space, and where the time has gone.
2009-12-29 22:16:51: Zombie Holden Caulfield hopes the monsters do come into the common ground. It would shake people out of their phony routines.
2009-12-29 22:19:39: Notable Badass Kestrel's dragon tilts his head slightly at the mute, then crawls forward, and curls up beside him.
2009-12-29 22:21:34: Returning Contestant Darael notices the paper dragon curled up beside him and picks him up gently. He gives his back an apologetic stroke.
2009-12-29 22:22:09: Notable Badass Kestrel's dragon uncurls again, and hrrs a little warmish ash onto the stroking hand.
2009-12-29 22:23:47: Pirate Queen Genevieve's Jackalope lopes in. He finds a small patch of cowslip and starts to nibble.
2009-12-29 22:24:14: Royale Badass with Cheese duphenix: Let the bastards come, the watcher is probably baiting them in here anyways. And think of it this way, how many of them do we beat up in the jungles everyday? And that is when we are alone.
2009-12-29 22:25:11: Royale Badass with Cheese duphenix: All we need is to learn to act together, instead of all of us going in our own directions all the times. If we all worked together the only one who could stop us would be the watcher herself.
2009-12-29 22:26:49: Returning Contestant Darael feels something warm and slightly powdery on his hand. He looks down, and sees his paw covered in ash. He just blinks.
2009-12-29 22:28:13: Returning Contestant Darael glances over at the speaking kitty. He writes a note on his slate, careful not to disturb the paper dragon: "I'm not even sure about her"
2009-12-29 22:28:13: Notable Badass Kestrel's dragon stops, confused at the mute's surprise.
2009-12-29 22:29:18: Returning Contestant Darael glances down at Kagero reassuringly. He really should have expected it. . .
2009-12-29 22:29:41: Lance Corporal Da Spook: Holy hell, Duphenix, are you saying that we should act like an actually army?
2009-12-29 22:30:41: Pirate Queen Genevieve's Jackalope looks almost as if he is listening in on the conversation.
2009-12-29 22:33:08: Notable Badass Kestrel walks in, looking tired, and joins Darael and Kagero. She glances up at the others. "I agree with Duphenix. If it comes to it, we'd work better together."
2009-12-29 22:34:36: Royale Badass with Cheese duphenix: I'm thinking more like a militia, we all go do our own thing in general. But when there is an attack we should be ready to act more like an army.
2009-12-29 22:37:24: Returning Contestant Darael waves a greeting to Kestrel, then nods agreement to her statement. He holds up Kagero on a flat paw, just in case he'd like to go back to his Joker.
2009-12-29 22:37:47: Lance Corporal Da Spook: That. not a bad idea, really. Cuase I'm certain something is going to happen.
2009-12-29 22:38:26: Notable Badass Kestrel smiles, and reaches out a hand. Perfectly synchronised, Kagero hops from his to hers, and she slips him onto her lap.
2009-12-29 22:40:10: Pirate Queen Genevieve's Jackalope lopes out
2009-12-29 22:40:44: Royale Badass with Cheese duphenix: Since we don't know what is going to happen, I think at least we should be prepared to move to any individual outpost that gets attacked. If they all come under attack then we'll need to coordinate.
2009-12-29 22:41:44: Royale Badass with Cheese duphenix: The comm tent will work for that though. I don't think the watcher can let that go down, we'd probably end up off the air if that happened.
2009-12-29 22:42:26: Notable Badass Kestrel replies, "Where would you suggest?"
2009-12-29 22:43:48: Lance Corporal Da Spook: And if it does go down? And how are we suposed to get to a outpost if it is under seige by beasties?
2009-12-29 22:45:29: Royale Badass with Cheese duphenix: Fight your way in. One-Shot if you have the spare req. Kittymorph runners between towns if the comm tent goes down.
2009-12-29 22:46:52: Returning Contestant Darael holds up a paw. He's volunteering for runner.
2009-12-29 22:47:11: Notable Badass Kestrel likes the idea of making a certain, generally lazy, race do the hard work.
2009-12-29 22:47:31: Royale Badass with Cheese duphenix: If we came under serious sustained attack we need to keep an outpost with cooking facilities. Pleasantville or Kittania.
2009-12-29 22:47:52: Lance Corporal Da Spook: Or you know, come here. if possible.
2009-12-29 22:47:55: Notable Badass Kestrel groans slightly. "I'll do the fighting, but not the running, if I can get away with it."
2009-12-29 22:48:46: Lance Corporal Da Spook: I would totally do both.
2009-12-29 22:49:21: Royale Badass with Cheese duphenix: We Kitty's run fast, it just makes the most sense.
2009-12-29 22:49:48: Lance Corporal Da Spook: indeed.
2009-12-29 22:52:12: Royale Badass with Cheese duphenix: Joker's don't need to eat, so you'd be best at fighting in IC, Ace high and Cyber City.
2009-12-29 22:52:44: Notable Badass Kestrel pauses, glancing down at her dragon. She murmurs, "I know you can act like a fierce little thing, but could you survive the fighting?" Kagero looks indignant.
2009-12-29 22:53:28: Notable Badass Kestrel grins, and nods. "That sounds like a plan. But you might need to disperse us throughout the cities, to make good use of our powers."
2009-12-29 22:53:37: Royale Badass with Cheese duphenix: Midget berserkers. Anywhere their legs can get them to. Humans get free grenades, that could be really useful.
2009-12-29 22:54:14: Royale Badass with Cheese duphenix: We need someone to post fliers in each of the cities.
2009-12-29 22:54:54: Notable Badass Kestrel could post fliers in Acehigh, if she were forced to.
2009-12-29 22:55:08: Returning Contestant Darael writes a note, mostly to Kes, but large enough to be visible to all: "Perhaps just a few in the other outposts, for emergencies, and make sure they can call others if needed?"
2009-12-29 22:55:12: Royale Badass with Cheese duphenix: The mutants could just read poetry until they beasties left a city. I don't know many robots though, what are they good at?
2009-12-29 22:55:46: Royale Badass with Cheese duphenix: I think we have Kittania covered.
2009-12-29 22:56:15: Returning Contestant Darael nods. The Home of the Kitties should be safe.
2009-12-29 22:56:43: Royale Badass with Cheese duphenix: I think I'll get the minutes of this meeting put into a pamphlet.
2009-12-29 22:56:48: Notable Badass Kestrel nods, then pauses. "Some Jokers can teleport from place to place. Should we station one of those in each city, the ones with the most advanced powers?"
2009-12-29 22:58:34: Lance Corporal Da Spook: Yeah, kittania is definatly covered. Though it is one of the one's most at risk, being surounded by jungle.
2009-12-29 22:58:49: Royale Badass with Cheese duphenix: If they are willing that would be awesome! As a non-Joker I'm usually wary of asking them to do anything.
2009-12-29 23:00:36: Notable Badass Kestrel thinks for a long moment. "If you could Distract me the pamphlet, I could ask a friend in DICE. But I couldn't be sure that they'd agree that it's best."
2009-12-29 23:02:27: Royale Badass with Cheese duphenix: It's ok, I think there is enough distrust of the watchers announcement that a lot of us will be prepared.
2009-12-29 23:03:01: Notable Badass Kestrel nods. "We'd probably survive even without all these preparations."
2009-12-29 23:03:22: Lance Corporal Da Spook: Yeah, defeinatly.
2009-12-29 23:05:30: Notable Badass Kestrel wonders briefly how a Royale Badass with Cheese could be scared of talking with Jokers. It doesn't seem to make sense to her.
2009-12-29 23:06:57: Royale Badass with Cheese duphenix: Ok, before I post the pamphlet, is anyone afraid to have their name in it? The watcher did ban talking about this after all.
2009-12-29 23:08:19: Returning Contestant Darael shakes his head. What's the Watcher actually going to do, anyway?
2009-12-29 23:08:39: Lance Corporal Da Spook: nope.
2009-12-29 23:09:12: Notable Badass Kestrel grins. "I think we get along quite well, actually. She won't mind."
2009-12-29 23:10:38: Returning Contestant Darael grins and nods at Kestrel's statement. He writes on his slate: "She's probably expecting someone to disobey anyway."
2009-12-29 23:10:58: Royale Badass with Cheese duphenix: http://tinyurl.com/ycmngww, I'll see if I can comm tent a link to each city. And KK Victoria used to beat me up a lot, thats why I'm wary of Jokers, and I like KK.
2009-12-29 23:12:44: Notable Badass Kestrel has just been drafted into a Defense Council, it seems. This should be fantastic fun.
2009-12-29 23:13:34: Returning Contestant Darael writes a note indicating that he's be happy to write up a summary of the meeting to accompany the minutes.
2009-12-29 23:15:32: Lance Corporal Da Spook: Defense Council, I like how that sounds.
2009-12-29 23:15:32: Returning Contestant Agelmar falls out of the tree he'd been dozing in. The tree sounds like it might be playing metal, but.. That can't be right.
2009-12-29 23:16:24: Notable Badass Kestrel nods to Agelmar, then looks around at her fellow Council members, grinning widely.
2009-12-29 23:18:19: Returning Contestant Darael writes:"I rather think we ought to make absolutely clear who is still present and thus should be considered to be on the council. I'll start: me."
2009-12-29 23:18:54: Lance Corporal Da Spook: me.
2009-12-29 23:19:37: Returning Contestant Agelmar wonders what bloody defense they're talking about as he rubs his aching head. He voices as much, patting himself down for a cigarette. The head bit, not the Defense Council question.
2009-12-29 23:20:35: Notable Badass Kestrel nods. "Me."
2009-12-29 23:20:51: Royale Badass with Cheese duphenix: me, and I've sent posters and pamphlets to Ace High, IC, Squat Hole, Kittania and Newhome. Can someone else get CyberCity, Pleasantville and New Pittsburgh?
2009-12-29 23:23:43: Returning Contestant Darael writes: "I don't think I can reach those, but I'd be happy to be Council scribe in future."
2009-12-29 23:23:56: Alpha and the Mass Chimental prowls in, just perplexed. The Jungles. They're quiet. Eerily quiet.
2009-12-29 23:25:12: Lance Corporal Da Spook: That could be bad.
2009-12-29 23:25:17: Notable Badass Kestrel nods to Alpha, then starts slightly. "Alpha, will you fight with us, like in CyberCity? When the monsters attack, I mean."
2009-12-29 23:26:29: Notable Badass Kestrel remembers the Void Beast battle, when she was new here.
2009-12-29 23:26:43: Returning Contestant Agelmar stumbles over to the bar, retrieving his lighter. No time to conjure a flame.
2009-12-29 23:26:43: Lance Corporal Da Spook Chimes in It'll be fuuuuunnn!
2009-12-29 23:27:30: Alpha and the Mass Chimental masktilts. "Monssssstersssss?" "Attacking?" "Don't they always do that?"
2009-12-29 23:27:51: Lance Corporal Da Spook: Attacking the outposts.
2009-12-29 23:27:52: Royale Badass with Cheese duphenix: I'm not gonna speak for everyone, but Dareal, if you'd like to edit the pamphlet I don't see a problem with it.
2009-12-29 23:28:05: Notable Badass Kestrel smiles. "Sort of. We think they may attack the outposts soon, and we want people to be ready."
2009-12-29 23:28:34: Royale Badass with Cheese duphenix hand Darael a note with the pamphlet and the location of some printers.
2009-12-29 23:30:08: Alpha and the Mass Chimental blinks at this new information. "Well that's not good." "That does explain the quiet Jungles, though."
2009-12-29 23:30:28: Sicpuess wanders in, following the sound of plan-ish ruckus.
2009-12-29 23:32:08: Lance Corporal Da Spook: Quite jungles? hold on, I have to go see this.
2009-12-29 23:32:11: Royale Badass with Cheese duphenix: I'm gonna go rest until midnight, I'll check back then.
2009-12-29 23:33:25: Returning Contestant Agelmar thinks fire would be good. Fire, all around the outposts. On some of the contestants, too. Him, for example. He'd love to be on fire for an indeterminate amount of time from a Joker.
2009-12-29 23:34:43: Returning Contestant Agelmar lights his cigarette, tosses the lighter onto the bartop, and drops into his normal seat.
2009-12-29 23:35:08: Returning Contestant Darael , catching some sort of Improbable psychic echoes, has a momentary mental image of Agelmar on fire, and grins.
2009-12-29 23:35:10: Lance Corporal Da Spook: So who all is on this council?
2009-12-29 23:35:39: Notable Badass Kestrel raises a hand. "Guilty as charged."
2009-12-29 23:36:41: Sicpuess headtilts, but doesn't ask. Yet. She was out when the announcement came, and hasn't got the slightest clue. Listens.
2009-12-29 23:36:46: Returning Contestant Agelmar has been tossing the idea around for some time. He thinks that being permanently on fire would be amazing. People could roast marshmellow on him, use him to see in the dark, scare monsters off. . .
2009-12-29 23:36:53: Notable Badass Kestrel lists, Da Spook, Darael, Duphenix, Kestrel. Did she miss anyone?
2009-12-29 23:37:34: Alpha and the Mass Chimental discusses with each other. A conclusion. "Find a way to cut off the cameras in the Outposts. You do that, and you won't have a new soldier. You'll have a new army." A chorus of chuckles.
2009-12-29 23:37:47: Returning Contestant Darael raises a hand.
2009-12-29 23:41:10: Lance Corporal Da Spook: so that's it?
2009-12-29 23:41:59: Royale Badass with Cheese duphenix wanders back, "I couldn't sleep"
2009-12-29 23:42:28: Returning Contestant Agelmar tips ash off of his cigarette. "I was ganna volunteer, but if'n you lot put me onna bucket brigade I'll rip y'jaw out an' dismbowel you wif it." He takes a drag, grinning crazily.
2009-12-29 23:42:34: Alpha and the Mass Chimental's mask nods. They're in. As long as they aren't broadcast over the cameras. And if they get to keep the leftovers.
2009-12-29 23:43:16: Royale Badass with Cheese duphenix: I think we are still in the recruiting phase. We will probably need as many people as possible before this is over. Quiet jungles disturb me.
2009-12-29 23:43:34: Returning Contestant Darael adds Alpha (and the Mass), as well as Agelmar, to his list of Council members.
2009-12-29 23:45:02: Returning Contestant Darael looks quizzically around, as if to ask if there is Any Other Business.
2009-12-29 23:45:23: Lance Corporal Da Spook: indeed. Quiet jungles begat nothing good.
2009-12-29 23:45:23: Sicpuess cautiously approaches, asking an a bit tired "E'vn'g, could someone tell me what's going on here. . .". She surveys the group.
2009-12-29 23:45:48: Alpha and the Mass Chimental agrees with the Kittymorph. Quiet Jungles are not a good sign, especially for hunters. Two members pounced on each other thinking the other was food. Funny as hell, but unnerving.
2009-12-29 23:46:42: Returning Contestant Agelmar raises a hand. "These xenophobic lot think something's gonna happen t' the outposts, I dunno. Monsters attacking, that lark. I'm up'n it because I get to burn things."
2009-12-29 23:47:07: Royale Badass with Cheese duphenix: Sicpuess, the watcher would probably call it insurrection, we like to think of it as preparation.
2009-12-29 23:47:15: Returning Contestant Darael takes that as acknowledgement that there will be no new business, and packs his slate up, then curls up to take a nap.
2009-12-29 23:49:21: Returning Contestant Agelmar doesn't understand why the rest of everyone is so uptight about the monsters attacking. The Watcher said it'd be alright, and he sort of trusts her. Nice girl, she's got spunk. Pretty sane, too.
2009-12-29 23:49:43: Lance Corporal Da Spook: I like to call it both.
2009-12-29 23:52:27: Sicpuess gets her head back the way it belongs. "Hmn. Call it insurrection. Yes."
2009-12-29 23:53:43: Sicpuess puts a finger to the corner of her mouth. "She would but it's not something she wouldn't have planned in." It looks like someone gave her a little update.
2009-12-29 23:54:49: Returning Contestant Agelmar nods. "Jus' don't call it arson, right? Collateral damage, it is. Can't bloody help you build a house in the way of my torcher, yeah?"
2009-12-29 23:56:53: Alpha and the Mass Chimental turns to Sicpuess. "Would she? Monsters causing havoc is destructive, but new and exciting. My guess is she's trying to increase the island's popularity."
2009-12-29 23:57:14: Sicpuess is not going to go down that road. "Fire is scary. Sure. But is it worth it."
2009-12-29 23:58:07: Returning Contestant Agelmar: "Ah, shite. I missed the bloody wedding."
2009-12-29 23:58:17: Royale Badass with Cheese duphenix: It's probably why she warned us. Give the viewers at home something new to watch.
2009-12-29 23:58:25: Sicpuess nods at Chimental - whether it's her own doing or just happens to happen, it amounts to the same.
2009-12-29 23:59:32: Notable Badass Kestrel frowns slightly. "But why give us time to prepare? Why not just show the viewers, and leave us clueless?"
2009-12-30 00:00:36: Lance Corporal Da Spook: And what it amounts to, is some McNast shit.
2009-12-30 00:00:48: Alpha and the Mass Chimental scoffs. "And let the people not have a chance to fight back?" "Hardly."
2009-12-30 00:01:33: Sicpuess does a vague gesture. "More knockouts means more work for her. Might be that the FailBoat would overflow."
2009-12-30 00:01:37: Notable Badass Kestrel pauses, and nods. She pulls two battered dice from a pocket, and rolls them on the grass, before smiling and storing them away again.
2009-12-30 00:02:05: Lance Corporal Da Spook: that's a good question. a random massacare would make for some good tv. Unless it's not her doing.
2009-12-30 00:02:39: Lance Corporal Da Spook: IT could be they're getting smarter on thier own.
2009-12-30 00:03:11: Royale Badass with Cheese duphenix: The warning is so they can show us tense and worried, build suspense for the home viewing audience.
2009-12-30 00:04:04: Lance Corporal Da Spook: And then what?
2009-12-30 00:04:21: Alpha and the Mass Chimental has a Gazebo, and she's smarter than the Jungle variety. Spook's theory could hold water.
2009-12-30 00:04:53: Returning Contestant GL McAwesome comes in quickly and sees the defense council. Is the propsed plan the on being pursued?
2009-12-30 00:05:47: Royale Badass with Cheese duphenix: So far it is, unless someone has something better.
2009-12-30 00:05:52: Sicpuess looks around again. She actually moves her hands up to emphase the quotes. "Preparation." If this group is all that is going to prepare.. heck, quadruple it and it's still nothing.
2009-12-30 00:06:45: Lance Corporal Da Spook: A mere fraction is better than nothing.
2009-12-30 00:07:00: Returning Contestant GL McAwesome: There are three humans with grenades and two kittymorphs in Newhome. We're in for your plan.
2009-12-30 00:07:00: Alpha and the Mass Chimental thinks out loud. "If the people are all slaughtered, it would take months, maybe even years to 'acquire' more contestants. Give them a chance, however, and some will survive."
2009-12-30 00:07:07: Lance Corporal Da Spook: And, if nothing else, at least WE might survive.
2009-12-30 00:07:54: Sicpuess would like to take the last comment back. . . seems to get running.
