[redacted]: "by Gesture is Linus?" [redacted]: "Lineus" [redacted]: "Linus, is that your Blight Scourge's name?"
The water not actually being cold, oh thank god.
"Well, just so you know, with Araris gone the order of useful Thrans is Vrajj, then me, then Malcolm". Followed by screaming. You guys make it so hard to maintain bitchface sometimes.
A very catty back-and-fourth by mail.
"CITIZEN, YOU ARE ON FIRE" (sidebar: we've been sitting on this idea for over a year, thank god I can finally talk about it).
"Where my Sound Alligators at?" (you know you've done something right when this is literally all you have to say to hook a mod). Also, the ensuing completely organic Seraphina running around a separatist battlefield yelling about how woefully unqualified she was to be here and how this wasn't where she expected this day to be going.
Piling drakes into my car.
Synchronized Khadani fanning. Like, was this shit rehearsed guys?
"What are you supposed to be, Random Randy?"
Watching Deva try to keep her house in order while simultaneously hosting a business guest and also moonshine hillbillies.
ISAAC, to Jahz: "Try not to disappoint the Dutchess." Greta: "He will not disappoint me simply by meeting my expectations." [bystanders]: oooOOOoooh.
Also whoever it was like 5 feet behind me not-so-discreetly whispering "Is that a Blackwood sword?" Yes. Yes it was.

My villainous leitmotif kicking in as I started to walk away, pretty much literally playing me off stage, just because that's the moment my phone decided to work. Couldn't have done that on purpose if I tried.
Inquisitor shenanigans; was it a mugging? An attempted murder? Was there a plan? Was there a particular point? Nobody knows! Hilarious and awesome, and I honestly enjoy being part of the kind of game where players feel empowered to randomly attack a face character, one played by a director no less. To me, in its' own weird way, it showed me that our players trust us not to throw bullshit or fudge out stats, and I really appreciate that trust.
Maintaining the tradition of Early Morning Philosophy 101 with Ahmoud.
And while it's not exactly a favorite moment for the event, I just want to say that while it was super stressful to miss very nearly the whole event because of work, while I was at work, it really reduced my stress to remind myself that we have awesome players and my fellow staffers are fantastic, and that even though being down a director is a big monkey wrench to throw in the works, the Sins community would be working together to make a great larp, regardless of me being there or not. Thank you all.
Hearing in a bunch of fights “We could have really used Araris there”. :::side eye:::
Seeing all the different things about Araris from a “fly on the wall” perspective. The framed certificate, the Blackwood plaque, the article in the paper - you guys all made me feel like I played a character that had real impact on the Expedition.
Having my first full event as Martigan, and getting to be a lazy pirate during fights if I felt like it was refreshing.
Discussing the status of me and Issac’s friendship.
Ahri, several times, “ Ok, I’m reset, what do you need?” Me - “Money”.
“Citizen! Stop, Drop, and Roll!”
The War Duchess and her sick burns.
Wrench’s sad statement.
The Keeper - “SHE’S ok.” :::points gun at me:::
Learning about wards, the first thing we come up with is like 5 different types of torture wards.
Malcolm - “Oh, you haven’t seen the Vivisectorium? You’re gonna love this.” Me in my head upon seeing it - :::Who lets this serial killer stay here?!?:::
My new Koeghem boi
Watching the first 5 minutes of Talos v. Inquisitor
Chucky as the blight ghoul running up the wall at me in the mine. Like, I kinda saw it coming and still thought “Oh, f*ck”.
All the kids watching the Urda fight from across the lake. They must of thought “Why the f*ck did my parents bring me to THIS camp? I want to be over there!”
Have to start by saying that going through almost an entire event with no edge was both thrilling and terrifying.
Realizing exactly how much potential there is for Cicero and Jhaz to make a great gun-mage buddy cop duo when we realized we both had exactly half of the symbols we needed for a ritual spell and then made it happen. Followed by walking outside and telling the several NPCs/players standing in the area just on the other side of the wall where we did area magic the buff they just got.
Sitting on the Khadan Cabin front porch drinking having a "beer" and smoking hookah as Inquisitor Francis strolled up. And then one of several great moments this event of casual racism. Though this instance was a bit more semi-formal racism.
Drake hunting with Theresa and learning that Jhaz isn't nearly as good at setting traps as he is disabling them. And then gun thaumiturging the way through the mod anyway.
Having Julian throw a cigarette at me as Surprise Deva politely kidnapped me out of a Tower meeting. And then explaining to her exactly how glad I was it was only a cigarette that hit me in the face and not a spell.
The moment when the cabin got themed fans and then pointing out we should try and have synchronized moments with them (so not rehearsed but somewhat planned).
Going on the Seraphina mod where there's a supernaturally dark cave and wondering why everyone thought it was so dark in here with all of the Aethereal Lights.
Leaving the Sound Alligator mod to hear the sounds of battle near by. Then spending several minutes fighting a Warjack with two daggers and no spare ammo because who takes all of their stuff to go crawling through a cave.
Having to blink myself up the last two levels of the spelunking mine because a ghoul maimed one of my arms. And then watching Wayne's body get blown out the entrance by the explosion and frantically digging through my stuff to find the staunching kit so Rashaad could save him. The Martin somehow managed to walk out of the mine alive. Then we turned around to leave and Jhaz had to frantically dig one handed through his pockets again looking for his notebook. Ooooh, mine team two.
The Dutchess and her casual racism/culturalism because she was 100% done with everything.
Fighting Gun-Mage Jess and being terrified of her if only because she was a much more kill-y gun mage in the long run. And then being super pleased when I managed to tag her with a crushing 20 from the big dumb shotgun.
"Citizen you're red with flame."
Summoning the Greed Sin of Student Debt and Anxiety.
The Duchess going more beast-mode than usual. Now with SICK burns
"I didn't know Vrraj had..a troll"
Wayne paying Talas to eat the newly discovered mushroom that Talas suggested they eat, followed by Martin scolding Wayne for not charging
[Redacted]: *performing first aid* "What would you like me to do with him?"
Martin charming Eastie the Ethani during her spinal tap. Also the Spinal Tap
The Vivisectorium..Just..Oh God
Issac yelling at everyone because we were crowding the room
The Group chant at The Keeper
Lupo fixing my limbs in the Scarlet Chorus fight. “Alright, we’re just gonna take a biiig step forward *crunch*”
Watching Francis walk towards the road the same time that two lights dashed into the woods on either side of it. Then waiting to see if those lights were doing what I thought they were doing. And then watching an Inquisitor go south. WELL PLAYED.
The scene that followed an early morning Nimboid blink into the kitchen: Vrraj: "...God Damnit.." *Proceeds to get back into bed* Rashaad: *knowing very well I will go immediately back to sleep* "No Vrraj, don't do it! You were the chosen one!"
Getting Harmonious AF in the woods
The different explanations for the spelunking teams and how they faired.
