Out of curiosity, how many missions do you have sitting in draft stage?

Me, right now:

- 2 in review
- 1 that I'll finish up quickly once the mission creator is working for me again (I dunno, it's being flaky this morning)
- 1 that needs a ton of research to write custom descriptions (nobody will like this, it's 3 miles long and not drivable)
- 1 that's waiting on me to research movie filming locations (I may never finish this, nobody actually does long thematic missions all over the city)
- 1 that's going to be a story telling mission and I need to write the story

You?

Heya, +NIA Ops! I am getting the "Oops, something went wrong..." message on Intel. I've tried clearing the cache and cookies; when I do that, I have to log into the Intel map again as expected. It then partially loads, but hangs.

When I reload at that point, I get the "Oops, something went wrong..." message again.

Anything you can do to help?

Not entirely clear why, but I can't deny the trend: whenever I'm in LA I drift back to listening to punk and new wave. Something about the palm trees.

The sun struggles up, another beautiful day, and you feel glad in your own suspicious way?

For the record, I'm fine with April Fool's Day as it currently exists. I chuckle at under 25% of the jokes, but whatever.

Also I like sportsball.

I'm going to be in Pasadena/Burbank next week on business (happens once or twice a month) and Disneyland at the end of the month on vacation. I am interested in public or ENL-public mission lists, general sociability, and so on. Burbank is fun but very blue.

I just started playing tonight. I live in Burbank, and yes, there's a ton of blue here.

Nitty gritty question about the order in which information is revealed:

I'm working on a hidden waypoint location mission. A couple of the waypoints require passphrases. I've also added custom descriptions. So, in what order do players see the various bits of information?

1. Location clue is shown immediately, of course
2. Come within range and the portal is highlighted
3. Question is shown

But does the custom description show up before the player enters the passphrase?

Put more briefly: if the custom description has a spoiler for the passphrase, is the player going to see it before s/he has to enter the passphrase?

When making missions where I want to have a passphrase give information I make 2 waypoints on the same portal. The first is the passphrase, the second a hack with the custom description. There are obviously problems doing that with "any order missions," but, while I haven't done any hidden portal missions, I would imagine that it would work just fine to help you control information flow.

Twoooooooo weeks left to make the Redeemer Chronicles happen! C'mon, little Kickstarter, go go go!

This is the story of Rosie Ransom, a riveter in 1945 Detroit--just as the war is ending. The boys are coming home from war, and with them come monsters! Rosie, who has grown to love her independence, discovers she has the ability to redeem a damned soul with a touch...but will she lose her own soul in the process?

This is your grandma's urban fantasy! Read the proposal chapters at http://mizkit.com/wp-content/uploads/2014/11/Redeemer_Proposal_Chapters.pdf and join the adventure at the Kickstarter page!
Buffy the Vampire Slayer meets Rosie the Riveter as WW2 comes to an end & a homefront battle against the monsters begins!

Catie writes awesome. Back this sucker. Do it now.
 
It is surprisingly nerve-wracking to launch a Kickstarter, even if you've run half a dozen or more crowdfund projects. But we're doin' it, ladies and gentlemen!

First! Let me invite you to read the Redeemer Proposal Chapters and submerge yourself into the world of the Redeemer!

Then when you've just gotten invested and find that the proposal comes to an end, dash over to the REDEEMER Kickstarter and help make it happen as a project! Go little Kickstarter go!

(I will now gnaw my knuckles for the next 30 days. :))

(holy shit, there's already a pledge and i haven't even posted this anywhere!)

Hey, I've given my Enlightened pals a lot of thanks for mission creation; I should also thank the Resistance mission creators for the same. If you've created a mission in San Francisco, there's a reasonably good chance I've completed it, so thank you for assisting me in my oddball game focus.

I have not done Portal Bingo yet. It's on my list (along with those film location ones), but so far I've been doing the hiking-oriented missions in my longer time slots. I did the Stanford Dish mission the other weekend, which was a really pretty walk.

Ed is an awesome designer and this looks like a very cool concept.

Etiquette question: I went through SFO yesterday and noticed a bunch of portals in the United terminal for the now completed Japanese Toys exhibition. That's been replaced by a cool Korean ceramics exhibition. SFO always cycles exhibits, so there's never going to be a permanent portal based on SFO museum exhibits.

Should I be reporting these and sadly thinning out portal density a bit, or what?
Japanese Toys! From Kokeshi to Kaiju. The Japanese imagination has led to many of the world's most extraordinary toys. Japanese toys span an unparalleled gamut—from a centuries-long practice of traditional doll making to whimsical folk toys, such as ghostly mechanical kobe figures and ...
