“Post-launch temporal shift, also known as ‘ship lag’. Don’t worry, it happens a lot to new crew members. The nagbot module was was installed for exactly this reason!”
“So get this: as a gag, I change all the airlock codes. Right? And then…um. Crap, are we live?”

I’ll try and run the numbers over lunch today and get round 2 up later this evening. The simulator isn’t nearly as finicky as the parser and I’ve been testing it in the background all week long to confirm accuracy.
- additional submissions now show the order set that they have overwritten
- an @mention to Kassandra should be sufficient: check/submit options are no longer needed.
- nag posts will also contain an indication of how much time remains before deadline
- additional expansion of personality modules
- several additional background improvements to make life easier for the GM
A second test:

how about this?
Oh yeah? What if I @mention you, buddy? @messana
Double checking, all repair kits purchased this round will be at the lower juice cost. right?
Correct! Repair costs for the round are now 45Ʉ and will be calculated as such when round 8 runs.
Gracias, I knew it would be because turns and all, but it’s a foggy sunday morning.
"Don’t tell the mammals! Don’t tell the mammals! For Herpeton’s sake, don’t tell…
Wait a sec. Aren’t you a… mammal…?"
Why would you say that! Of course I am. Look, two nipples, right? Two! Umm… where’d that go… Aha! Here they are!
“Huh. So that’s what nipples look like.”
They do? Great!
Uh I mean of course they do!
“Okay, see here. Don’t tell the… er… other mammals about the Repair Facility. Why not? Well, look, they’re soft and emotional and squishy and they’re thinning my… that is, our profit margin, especially that goddamned potato guy, and what have they ever done for you? Have they ever embraced you for your… true nature?”
I think that potato guy has 37 nipples. What a freak.
“We told him that sunbathing under that thin Martian atmosphere was dangerous… not nearly enough protection from solar and cosmic radiation, and would he please apply a higher SPF, but the vain asshole would just laugh and mix up a fresh daiquiri. See why we wanted to teach him a lesson? So now he’s got that sun-kissed glow and all those mutant nipples and he blames me. So don’t tell him about the Repair Facility!”
