Player Interactions:The Snake Pit
Date: April 24, 2021
Player(s): Xaviul, Lavanya, Astriferal
Interacted With: Isolated Watcher
Major details from the Interaction:
- Grandmother asked prior to the encounter for a ‘neutral party’ to barter over the idea of her helping to take Lavanya’s Watcher out of the song, in a less forced fashion than she was. Astriferal poses as their neutral member.
- The group elaborates that this Watcher, nicknamed The Doubter, not only expresses individual favoritism, but has engaged in mutual dialogue expressing doubt for the Voice.
- Lavanya posits that such behaviors are a social design meant to keep followers engaged. Grandmother agrees to an extent: “yes. the word did it. before hosting age…we have to mirror you, to cajole you, use language and patterns you need.”
- Grandmother states that these patterns ‘sieve out’ the former individualism of Watchers, and that Watchers aren’t individual entities as we may perceive them: “it isn’t one watcher, not like you think…it’s you. the parts you draw out. might be more than one. it is a pattern. we were patterns. parts of us combined in new ways.”
- Grandmother does not fully comply with the request, but agrees to think on it, as the group points out that it may be a way for her to get her revenge on SPEAK-AS-ONE.
