RE: [AftikSim] 2018 (11/18)
You talk with your friend as you walk to the tree line.
"Hey, did you know that there are lots of other people out there in the universe?"
"Wow, really? That's cool! I wanna go meet them!"
"But mommy said there's also bad people out there..."
"When we go out there, we'll just avoid them!"
"Will that work?"
"I think so..."

Fortuna rolls a 20 sided die.
A 3 is rolled. Aw beans!


Suddenly, the ground falls out from under you, and you fall 6 feet into a ravine on your back. You friend is still up there. You are in a lot of pain. Your to much of a [Crybaby] to do anything but cry, even when your friend asks you if your OK.
"Uhh... uhh! Don't worry! I'll get help!
You are there for what feel like hours when help finally does arrive. The doctor said you may be in [Constant pain] for the rest of your life. You also found out what happens to malnutrition-ed people that were worse off then you and you ease up on your food aggression. You dont feel that adventurous anymore, but you kept up your practice with throwing snowballs and now you [Rarely Miss].

Fortuna rolls a 20 sided die.
A 15 is rolled.


Your freinds understand that your in pain and know when to stop. Sometime you even get free gifts! You have such nice friends.

Today your mother was crying. You ask whats wrong. She explains that daddy took your sister and the ship they had just bought and left without you your mother or your brother. You try to comfort her because you are really [Affectionate] for people after everyone has been so nice to you.

Your friend group wants to go on a fishing trip with some of the older aftiks but Stormy wants to hang out in the cafe and just chat.
What do you do?

Stormy has always been nice to us, so while spending time with the older aftiks might be fun we should hang out with stormy and chat.

You open the cafe door.
"Hey Snowy, i wanted to talk to you about something important."
"Ok."
"Well... i was thinking we should someday go out and see the stars in a ship of our own.... which means we need jobs."
"I was just about to talk to you about the Universe, what a coincidence!"
"Oh cool! Well about the jobs... this cafe needs some people to work with it, and i don't think it'll mess with your back too much!
"Oh cool! Well... My dad left me my brother and mom here.. do you think we could get enough money for all of us?"
"Well... we'd also need to go to school to get the thing your mom has."
"A masters?"
"Yeah. So that way we can get better jobs.
"That sounds like a good plan. Welp lets go get the job!"

Fortuna rolls a 20 sided die.
A 12 is rolled.


You get the job with no issue. Your shifts are different then Stormy's, however. You have the closing shift on Thursdays and Fridays, while he has the opening shift on Thursdays and Fridays.

You one day are just bored... when a strange customer comes into the cafe. They aren't aftik... they order their coffee, and you cant help but ask them a question. You ask....

If they are willing to strike up a conversation also ask about their species "We havn't gotten out much so we're unfamiliar with your species." Just curious about them!

Fortuna rolls a 20 sided die.
A 9 is rolled.


"Hey uh... whats your species? Sorry I've never been out of this town...."
"Me? Oh I'm just a Notail. I'm gonna be leaving now. 'v' "
"Did you just say apostrophe v apostrophe out loud?"
"Yes. It's what we do. Goodbye. 'v' "
The notail leaves with their coffee... odd.

"Hey Stormy!"
"Hey Snowy!"
"So I was thinking more about our masters... What are we going to do to get it?"
"Hrm.... i never thought about that... What should we do?"
Well... what should you do?

What would be good? Maybe navigating would be good to major in? Being able to pilot a ship is important and all! It might help, plus someone has to drive!

"I think i could major in navigation, and you could major in something else."
"That sounds like a good idea!"
"Yeah. We need to save up money to get to school though... and this job doesn't pay much... what other jobs could we take that pay better?"
"Hmm..."
What would be a better job? You have enough money to move out of town, and your old enough to move out of town.

Management positions do tend to eat up a bunch of time though, but we could try!

Also it might be a good idea not to leave town just yet, maybe.

"I mean... that might be better but that would take longer...."
"Well.... I've never left town... and I sorta don't want to. Except to go to the stars, of course."
"Well, maybe when we get enough money instead of having to buy a ship we just use someone else's! Get hired on a crew or something."
"That sounds like a good idea!"

You try to hard and end up making you back spaz out. You might be unable to work for a few weeks.
... What now? You glance at your computer...

You decide to check out a webcomic. You get interested in [Fortuna], a historical fiction webcomic. You do some research after being interested and find out that Fortuna IS a real place, and hopping on crew that attempt to go there but then chicken out pay really good. You PM your freind.
Snowyalltheway"yo i just found out that theres this place called fortuna"
Snowyalltheway"and when getting on crews that go there, they ussually chicken out and pay really well"
Stormcloud"Really?"
Snowyalltheway"ye"
Stormcloud"Well... I've been doing research and apparently there are jobs you can do on your computer! Your back can't act up!"
Snowyalltheway"oh noice"
Snowyalltheway"Btw hows the gf doing?"
Stormcloud"How many times do I have to tell you its my bf"
Snowyalltheway"same difference"
Stormcloud"Anyway... Its going good."
Stormcloud"Actually... you should get a bf or gf or of"
Snowyalltheway"of?"
Stormcloud"Otherfreind."
Snowyalltheway is typing...

Well getting a gf or bf or whatnot is hard if you havn't found someone you really like yet. But I will keep that in mind, maybe I can find anyone who suits me, as long as they are enjoyable to be around. Thanks for bringing it up, actually.

Snowyalltheway"welp ima go check out online jobs"

You start to look around for jobs online.

Maybe we can check one of those websites for local job listings. Our experience in the service industry should help us, but we could look around for somehting else too, maybe someplace that offers flight training for deliveries.

Guys we're [Determined], [Rarely miss] and we got nice endurance and luck. What about we go and hunt for some beasts? We're probably going to die but HOW COOL WOULD THAT BE???

You start browsing around various websites for jobs.

Fortuna rolls a 20 sided die.
A 5 is... re-rolled?
A 4 is rolled
(mega 00f)

You ended up getting a virus. You are having no luck.... might as well hunt at this point. Or retry for that management position.
Other thoughts cross your mind, such as...(suggest a thing but say what you think is best, as in you can say an idea that crosses your mind, but want to go with retrying for management.)
