Snow Crash [Phalla] - Game Over: Final Narration page 165

edited July 2008 in Debate and/or Discourse
Ilya Prodolzhenie studies the avatars milling about the Hacker Quadrant. The Black Sun has had its physics engine redone since the Snow Crash scare, so he fingers his sniper rifle and shifts position on the raised platform in the center of the Quadrant. So far everything looks pretty hunky-dory, but Hiro is pretty much never wrong about these things, so Ilya is prepared for anything.

A voice whispers in his ear: “Anything yet, Recur?”

Ilya shakes his head, even though of course the person on the other end can’t see him. “Nothing so far, Mr. P. I have my eye on a few guys I don’t recognize, but they haven’t done anything out of the ordinary yet.”

“Alright, well keep a vigilant eye out for anything weird, I’m pretty sure something’s about to go down.”

“Yes sir, Mr. P.”

Ilya settles back into his position and looks through the scope at the avatars he’s been following for awhile. Hiro calls him Recur because Ilya hasn’t told him his real name. Recur is a screenname of sorts; his Metaverse persona is completely different from his Reality persona, which is semi-common among hackers.

Ilya works for Hiro Protagonist Security Associates, which has been spending 100% of its resources pursuing the Snow Crash virus. Whoever is behind the most recent outbreak has begun creating daemons that distribute the virus, rather than risking actual people. Some of these daemons are basically ninjas; they attack their victim and when their prey is vulnerable they unleash the torrent of information that causes the hacker’s brain to basically freeze in place. Some are more subtle about it, though, which is what he suspects he’s dealing with here.

It’s apparent that some of the conspirators are in the upper echelons of the Black Sun, because daemons have been able to gain access to the building when they should have no business doing so. Due to these infiltrations, Jethro, Da5id’s successor, has allowed Hiro to retool the physics in the building to allow for certain projectile weapons, including Ilya’s sniper rifle. The rifle delivers a program that will instantly kick a user off the Metaverse, or will delete any daemon program it encounters.

Ilya notices one of the strangers looking suspicious, and peers at him through his scope. The avatar reaches into his pocket and pulls out a syringe, sticking it surreptitiously into a hacker’s avatar. The syringe is the visual representation of a unique version of the Snow Crash virus; once the virus has spread through the system of the victim, the hacker is instantly kicked out of the Metaverse, and the Snow Crash “white noise” fills his goggle display. Occasionally the hacker has the presence of mind to quickly snatch off the headset, but most of the time the virus does its work too fast, and another hacker falls victim to the Snow Crash virus.

Ilya only has a couple of seconds before the virus completely infects the hacker’s system, so the first thing he does is put a bullet in the hacker’s head. This kicks the hacker out without Snow Crash appearing in his goggle display; it’s a pain, since he’ll have to wait several minutes to log back on, but certainly better than becoming a vegetable. The daemon starts to run towards the exit, but Ilya is very good at this, and tracks the daemon’s progress before drilling a bullet through its ear. The daemon falls to the ground and disintegrates. Ilya relaxes and sets the gun down before getting back in contact with his boss.

“You were right again, Mr. P. There was another one of them here.”

“Did you take care of it?”

“Yeah, I had to take out the hacker, but he should be fine. The daemon’s gone.”

“Alright, good. Come on back to the office for a general meeting. I think it’s time to go on the offensive…”

    Welcome to Snow Crash Phalla! Here are your rules:

    Basics:

    Stolen blatantly from the OP of LaOs’s phalla.
    This is a Phalla. If you are not sure what that is, check this or ask.

    If you have any public clarification requests, please post them in Orange.

    The standard rules apply, including the ban on anonymous contact (so if the person you are talking to does not know it is you, you are breaking this rule) and the ban on screenshots/forwarding PMs to players. You may, of course, paraphrase as you will. Also, there is to be no communication with/amongst the dead until after the game is over.

    Voting:
    Once per day, make a vote for whom you suspect to be involved in the Snow Crash conspiracy. Please vote in Bold Red. Retractions are not necessary, only your latest vote will count. However, if you wish to retract a vote, you may do so by retracting Bold Lime.

    The Metaverse:
    Each day, you may make a public announcement in Bold Cyan detailing whether you wish to be in the Metaverse or the Real World for that day. Some abilities can only affect you in one place or the other, so choose wisely. Any announcements of this nature must be made an hour before voting closes. Any switches made in the last hour of the day will not count. Everybody starts off in the Metaverse. If you do not make an announcement, it will be assumed that you stayed in the place you most recently switched to.

    Hacker ability:
    Each player has a one-time ability to have their vote count as two votes. If you wish to use this ability, PM visiblehowl, and your vote will count double. This ability can only be used once in the game by each person.

    Activity:
    Activity is highly recommended and greatly encouraged. There are no hard and fast rules for judging inactivity (it's up to me), but please make an effort. If you do not think you will be able to commit the proper amount of time to this game, please let me know and bow out graciously. I have several reserves at the moment, but even if I use them all, please don't drag down the game for anyone else by staying in if you cannot play. You'll be thanked for dropping out rather than hated for being inactive.

    All actions and clarification requests should be PM'd to visiblehowl. If visiblehowl’s PM box is full, please send them to VisiblyApathetic.

    Each night will close at exactly 8 pm Pacific time or 11 pm Eastern time. If I am able, I will make a “Vote Closed” post, but even if I do not make such a post, the vote will close at exactly that time. Any votes or actions made at 8:00 or later will not be counted. Day 1 will end on Thursday.

    With Fembot withdrawing, do the votes cast by Fembot remain and the replacement would have to re-vote to change, or are they removed now?

    Any votes and/or actions made by someone who is dropping out or replaced will be nullified. The replacement will make their own votes and/or actions.

    What happens in the event of a tie?

    In the case of a tie, both players will be killed.

    Do hackers change their locations before or after actions are taken and votes are tallied?

    Hackers switching locations happens first in the order of events.

    The order of events is:

    I'm a nonfiction kind of guy; I think it'd be more fun for me if I just flew blind and go along thinking Black Sun is going to come and wash away the rain.

    That said, I have no freaking clue what I'm doing but think it might be somehow advantageous for me to be in the universe everyone else isn't, so let's go ahead and go go gadget real world for now.

    And a vote... on no info, the usual Day 1 fuckuppery, but let's see if I can hit anything. Malkor, love you, hope that on an approaching day I can refer to you as "constituent", but for now, die, Malkor, you goddamned daemon.

    Hmm... the OP is as interesting in what it doesn't say as in what it does.

    We don't know how many bad guys (I'd think in a game this size it must be at least 8) or how many groups they're divided into (OP seems to imply they're all working together in a single group, but that would be unusual in a game this size). I suppose we'll know at the end of the first day how many kills they get per night anyway.

    We also don't know how many / what type of good specials we have, and what the restrictions on them are.

    Also, shall we speculate on what "Some abilities can only affect you in one place or the other" really means?

    I'm going to guess that the virus can only affect you when you're in the metaverse.

    Maybe a second group of bad guys can kill you in the real world?

    Maybe there are two of each good special -- one for the metaverse and one for the real world?

    Thoughts? Ideas?

    Yeah, this seems likely as well. or at least if there is one group of monsters they can kill one person a night in each world.

    Though with a game this size they may have a few bonus kills.

    I'm thinking there will definitely be a snow crash virus... So if someone tries to infect you and you're in the real world, nothing happens. Maybe if you're in the metaverse you can't be targetted by certain physical attacks as well?

    If that's the case, I hope all the bad guys won't be able to be online in the last hour of the day, when the final public declarations of who will be in the metaverse are made...

    Day end is early enough in this game that I'd count on at least one bad guy from each group (assuming multiple groups) being on-line during that hour, probably right up to vote close.

    Also, I just had an odd thought... what if one group of bad guys can steal your goggles, effectively trapping you in the real world? Given that we're not sure what effect being in each place has, that may or may not be a serious problem, but if they hit, say, a seer who only works in the metaverse, it could be pretty bad.

    I too will probably end up by one of these books. Good job VH.

    So is the Snow Crash book good?

    I think there's a bit of a suspension of disbelief in making the jump from real world to Snow Crash's future (especially since I don't think he put it very far in the future at all), and I imagined Y.T. as acting about 10 years older than the book said she was, but all in all it's pretty awesome.
