We have another strip on the topic of Gabriel’s desertification, I think that’s on Monday. His first day back in the office was yesterday, and his posture seemed to have been altered drastically. He was taller than usual and… I don’t know how else to put this. He appeared to have a spine? I don’t know what Arizona mineral he absorbed but whatever it was it seems to foster the wearing of hats.
Today’s strip, though, involves cross-applicability of virtual skills. I understand that his family named their horses after digital horses they’d claimed in a videogame, completing the circle. It sounds like they brought the Switch with them, yea, even unto that star-ravaged plain, where it got the kind of use we all assumed was confined exclusively to a kind of marketing fantasia. They just released the Jackbox Party Pack 3 on the system, which… I mean, I don’t know what to tell you. This is killer app territory and I’m not making a fucking joke. This is a vision of a society we have yet to become. That kickstand is gonna be putting in work.
Hey! New episode of Acquisitions Incorporated: The “C” Team. Specifically, it’s Dungeons & Wagons: Part 2, although there are many alternate suggestions for the name that have been suggested. Cart Blanche, for example. A La Cart. Or, simply, tastefully, Dungeons & Wagons: Cart 2. The next episode is called “The Vespertine Order” unless I change my mind, which I probably will.
My long term fantasy for all this shit comes in the form of a legit Acquisitions Incorporated sourcebook that has all the crunch for franchises, cool things to spend your gold on, the customized parts of the setting I’ve written, and a campaign to get the party started. Hashtag double entendre, of course. Putting out an RPG sourcebook is one of those things I didn’t realize was a dream until I start thinking about it. It would put such firm parenthesis around such a vast part of my life that I’d need to manufacture a new identity to continue living in any useful way.
