Re: Xi: Continuum - all clues & info [SPOILERS]

Jan 8, 2013

I am trying to boost my card game stats here soon and will be purchasing the card packs. I was wondering who would be available this weekend? (as I will be off from work). I understand the tedium of the game that is why when I play it, I usually have netflix running on my Vita... Smiley Wink (Red Dwarf is back on Netlix!!!!) If you can help send a friend request letting me know

Am I the only one disappointed in Jess' message today. It seemed a touch lame. The whole thing, particularly the unimaginative name change at the end, made her seem childish. Like she was going, "Neener-neener-neener, come and get me." Since EFD likes to play with her own name, but keeps to the same initialing convention, Jess could have been a little more clever with her teasing. For example, she could have called her ExpelFlatulenceDiscreetly.


One hand your right, on the other that would also be the point of doing what she did. She is trying to force EFD to make a move.  To brag at what she (EFD) did.  By doing that we might get a clue on how to fix what she did.

i actually really like the Snowcrash game..although i guess im in the minority... its strategic and different. This and Hexx are some of my favorites right now. Only problem is, whenever i go there, its either empty, or the people there are more interested in fighting each other than me

I'm not sure if anyone has suggested what I'm about to say since there are so many posts, and I may have missed some things, but here are some thoughts I had about Quinta Essentia.

 

Spoiler
As much as has been revealed from the message fragments we have found so far, I believe that Quinta Essentia is an earlier space created by the Zero's. They may have gone by a different name for their group then since Axiom doesn't seem to know much about them, but it is important to note first of all the message gives Quinta Essentia a lifespan of 2010-2011. I think Axiom (or maybe even another entity we don't know about)  already destroyed their first space, and that was called Quinta Essentia. The Continuum is their second attempt, and the fragments are the developers' signature to remind those of us who are coming along now what happened then. History is now repeating itself, and it's up to us to either allow the same thing to happen, or find the resolve to stop it. As someone pointed one a while ago, Quinta Essentia means the essence of five...the five who created it. The Continuum represents the continuation of the spirit and creativity that went into their first attempt. It is a symbol of their perseverance...never give up, no matter how bad things get. They can destroy your work, but the mind that created it is still yours, and you can do even bigger and better things.

 


 

LancelotNYC123, looks like some of what you posted is true based on whats been posted on the aszero website on Day 28. Unfortunately, I don't think the Quinta Essentia is going to provide any detail on what happened..

Re: Xi: Continuum - all clues & info [SPOILERS]

Jan 9, 2013

@Ren_Echo Thanks for the mention. I was thinking about it when I read their chat today. Hopefully as we get more pieces of the message, we'll be able to piece more of the story together of what happened. I have a feeling that one or more members of aszero knows more than they're letting on.

 

Here are some more thoughts I had about Quinta Essentia based on the message so far.

 

Spoiler

They created the space for both their own enjoyment and for friends they would meet on Home. It was a special hangout away from all of the crazies (off the grid), or so they thought. Aparently it didn't take long for things to get out of control since no one seemed to appreciate it and took it for granted, and their paradise was in shambles. While the chat on aszero today asked the question "Why would we destroy our own space?", I think that's a very good question to ask. Notice they didn't actually say that they wouldn't...they simply asked why would they. Based on the QE message, I think they (or at least one of them) did destroy that space when they realized that paradise was lost. Maybe they are prepared to do the same thing with the Continuum rather than let it deteriorate before their eyes like what happened with QE.

 

Another idea...I think MerylSilvertongue knows a lot more about what happened and that we haven't yet heard the last of her. She may even be working with EFD...or maybe she is EFD. In fact, she may be the one who placed the bomb in Stapler out of vengence for what Axiom did to her simulacrum. In other words...you come into my home and make trouble and rip my avatar to pieces? I'll show you! One reason I think it's possible they are working together or are the same person is because when Meryl's simulacrum was taken for "questioning", what was left of it was taken away by someone, and neither Axiom or the Zero's seem to know anything about it. So the ideas some people had about EFD once being with the Zero's...that just may be right, only she never truly left until the Meryl incident. Of course that begs the question why Meryl would have taken on the EFD persona before that unless she knew that Axiom were on to them and decided she was going to deal with it her own way apart from the rest of the group. There is also the problem that Axopedia reports that Merly is introverted and EFD is extroverted, so they do appear to be different people, but if they are the same person, it could have been her intention all along to create another persona to remove some of the attention from the Zero's and herself. There are certainly still some plot holes to resolve some of these ideas, but it's a working theory. Thoughts?

Back to Snowcrash... some constructive criticism is due. If nDreams decides to keep the space for chapter 2, then they really need to liven the place up.

The radio was a start. Albeit, a strange mission that came from left field.

But some furniture is needed. And a bar area.

Plus, however much I care little for the card game, doing just a daily leaderboard instead of daily, weekly, monthly and all-time leaderboards really deters from the replayability of the game.
