    I forgot to roll to reject! (2d6)[7]

    I think this is a pretty dramatic "I am not normal", so potential for proving him wrong. Clearing Angry from regenerating, also changing the powers, appearance, and debating on doing gender identity, removing influence or forgetting lessons. Frankly, I wish the "forget lessons" was "forget a lesson", since with how often I end up dying, going back to square one seems rough.

    Note that you're getting some new lessons from Comstar's influence:

    - I am a STAR!
    - A superhero should always be the centre of attention!
    - Always go BIGGER!
    - Never think about the consequences of your actions

    Well that makes picking the third thing easy, lessons I suppose (replacing with those). Now then.

    So to be clear. Ferra hijacked the stream, all the cameras were on her when she got up. Timing-wise, it could work out still if they're posting in response to seeing the Saras crowding Euna, just wanted to be transparent about what I was doing.

    *Nod* Yeah, that's what happened, there was just a bit of time delay before that factored in to what people were saying. Sorry if anything wasn't clear, I am still very post-con.

    I have played exactly two games of it ever - but I won't say no to a challenge!

    I have no idea/can't remember what you're referring to with Arcadia; could you give me some context for your question?

    Point of Order: I don’t think Influence is interchangeable between dimensionally shifted Saras? I wouldn’t mind except that canceling out Sara Prime’s Influence because another Sara is being mean to you is a lil weird? I mean, I can see it, tho, so I guess just flagging for clarification?

    Edit Note: putting my cards on the table, I’ve been running @SARAHPHIM, AGENT OF A.E.G.I.S. (yeaaaaaaaah!!) like an NPC, so I can’t have her refuse here; she’s not as important to our story as Sara Prime is.

    I'm of two minds on it. On the one hand, canceling out the influence from this version of @SARAHPHIM feels like it's objectively the correct move, and narratively it makes for a good lead-in to him stepping out from Sara Prime's shadow. On the other hand, I can totally see where you're coming from with it being weird to cancel out one character because of another.

    On yet a third hand, there's a part of me also worried about going through this with each of the other dimensional duplicates, and wants to selfishly cancel all the influence so Victor doesn't have to be influenced by and cancel out each new Sara alternate in turn.

    I think cancelling out duplicates' influence as a unit is fine if you want to do it, but @Sarahphim prime is still your Sara and if you're mad at her you should say it to her face.

    I like that! Yeah, Victor is done with these shenanigans and has influence/knows what buttons to push for all the others, that works super well.

    Two things:

    1) I'm really hoping to see Ferra go ham here and aggressively demand the spotlight and the attention of her stupid jerk teammate who keeps ignoring her because she is awful and the worst

    2) Really surprised I've been in a scene with 6 Saras for this long and not gotten hit with a label shift

    So what's the roll for bullfighting an AI-fuelled farm facility while using your teammate as the red flag?

    EDIT: Also, do any of you have a copy of the AEGIS playbooks downloaded? The link in the OP has redirected to some guy's car blog, for some reason, and while I downloaded the main book and the standard playbooks, I must've forgotten to download the AEGIS specific PDF.

    That is in fact the plan. She's basically going to dismiss the various Saras, and do something flamboyant and short sighted. Just trying to decide on what.

    Edit: Sorry Euna...

    So I don't see her as fully self aware enough to know "I want the spotlight" even if she does. So she's putting that instead in the context of "I am the best, and we have a job, ergo we will focus on me doing the job".

    So, back on my own profile, Ferra is still able to reject the comstar lessons, right? Because I think that'd be quite a neat scene in this sequence, if the opportunity arises.

    I would say that rejecting those lessons is the point.
