OK, I’m just going to do it. I’m sorry if this is a little loopy, I never take painkillers because they make me ill, but I took half of one leftover from my motorcycle accident surgery and a shot of vodka. I DO NOT RECOMMEND, kids! But now I can walk to the bathroom, again, without using a cane.
I will post this and probably be ill for the rest of the day.
May I take a contempt token in my box, because @RossM was being a total selfish D and just doing a thing we didn’t agree on? (I edited the image, feel free to fix it if I’m wrong, it just vanished on the last edit. Good use of Contempt, btw Ross! )
The generations of base dwellers have a certain position, authority in their own specialized field, by way of necessity just for survival. They tend to go on family lines: administrator families administrate, bio-engineer families keep everyone fed, and so on. Everyone has an essential role, but they all have their specialties. There is a circular hierarchy where one respects another’s authority in their role. Not to say there hasn’t been some, um…“cross-pollination” over the years. But generally, families stick to their disciplines, and each disciple defers to what they consider to be the expert in their field, from admin to tech to maintenance and anything in between.
(In reality, though, the science families, the parents with the most letters after their name and the thickest degrees tend to call the shots, their kids benifit).
(Ace of Spring: What group has the highest status in the community? What must they do to gain that status? OR Are there distinct family structures? If so, what structures are common? I hope you guys can see why I was having a conundrum with this.)
For my Action
I would like to Start a Project to repair another transport since @RossM just sent off the only one we had like a jerk. (one week? Does that work for you guys? I have to be honest, I’m trying to learn XML, and I keep on confusing my XML cheat-sheet for the rules, and it’s getting weird. I’ll hopefully make more sense tomorrow, let let me know if I’m doing it right)
