Re: OOC
Assumption 1 is the problem.  I just used showboat to go with the Vegas theme.  They were not on the boat with him.  Even if he was, I suppose they could have gotten off along the way.  No boats go into Vegas.  The best they could have done is gone down the Colorado to Lake Mead.  I probably should have chosen a different mode of transportation though...maybe a Harley.

Sorry for the delays.  I had two cars break down in two weeks.  Not fun.

I will be out of town until Sunday.  I would like to get this rolling again next week if I have enough of a headcount.

Re: OOC
I've decided to discontinue this game.  I could recruit new players, but I think it's getting too complicated and hard for them to understand. I think I will retool the rules to make them easier and restart from scratch.  But that might take some time given my schedule.

So here is the plot summary of what I was planning:

You find that all the groups are after you, and you confront about one group from each of the factions, including the Faceless Ones and Agents.  You successfully put the virus into the system, only to find out that it doesn't work.

In the meantime, you keep hearing the strange warnings of the little girl.

So with time running out, you realize that the strange worm creatures are the key, and you find a way to lead them to Zero-One's central node.  Through a final confrontation, you destroy Zero-One and bask in victory.

And then you find out that this little girl still talks to you.  With the Matrix down, that shouldn't happen...should it?  You have also started to find, strangely enough, that your Matrix "powers" are seeming to work outside the Matrix.

Finally, you discover what the Redundancy is.  It is Zero-One's back up system.  In other words, the Matrix was inside another Matrix. So you thought you destroyed Zero-One, but really you just destroyed the first layer and have never, ever left the "Matrix" at all.  Even Zion was inside a matrix system, just a different one in which the Matrix was contained.  So the girl has been talking to you from beyond the Redundancy...

...and then it could lead into a new beginning from there...or end.  That was my "surprise" ending.

Re: OOC
Oh, and I forgot to mention, the person who "betrays" you.  I was going to introduce a seedy character and have you all suspect him, but then after the virus fails, it is actually Jade who betrays you all, turning you over, and you'd have to fight her and a couple agents.

Yes, Jade has been an NPC from day one, although I've tried to run her like a PC.

Re: OOC
"the Matrix was inside another Matrix."

That was what I was hoping during the third movie was going to be the ending.

"Jade has been an NPC from day one"

That was a surprise!  Wow!

Re: OOC
Thanks to everyone who played the game!  I will send you a PM when I am able to start it up fresh.

A lot of the problems with this one started arising when I changed jobs and just haven't had the time to devote to this as I was hoping.  Especially with GURPS, I noticed that you have to be on top of the ball because of all the rules and rolling.  Not sure if I'll continue with GURPS in the next incarnation.

But I'm glad all of you stuck with me this far.

If you are interested in joining my other games, please let me know.  I run a couple that go through published adventures, so it's much less work for me.  They are Paranoia, Star Frontiers, and AD&D second edition.

Hope to see all of you in the future!

Re: OOC
Probably at some point.  I'm hoping to simplify the rules.  I just make a post periodically to make sure the admins don't delete the game from RPoL.

Re: OOC
Question here is whether GURPS is the best set of rules or another.

A PM to all the past players might have been better.  Forces the game up on their list.
