Great job this challenge, and loved the race write up.  Your format was really cool this time around!

If I tried to explain, it would be one big mess. I have a 3+ page word document with everything in it, but not publishing it until I've got it all streamlined.

Makes sense. I can tell there is a good system and that you understand it!

Congrats on reaching your goals!! Even though I'm on team didn't-fully-understand-the-rules ;)

Does that mean you would be interested in that 3+ page word document I mentioned? I might make it public after a few more tweaks for the next challenge.

What an excellent challenge.

I secretly am hoping that you will continue this format, mostly so that I can work on my origin story.

[raised by a bunch of Faces, with a disturbingly good natural ability, I found the whole nature of the confidence business repugnant; I ran off and hid in the technical realm for a bit, but started losing my soul in the virtual-ness of it all, so walked away from the machines to go up a mountain and grow food, but the isolation ate away at me until I walked back down toward balance and stillness and community involvement.]

 

And yes, I'm considering using the message of the day from the mainframe in my next challenge, but Druidifying (that's a word, now) it. 

 

Thanks for such a great round of creativity.

I will indeed continue this format. Wish I had more time to write forum talk on Shadowland BBS or even short stories about each mission, but sadly I don't. Your origin story looks good and I'm honored to have sparked your creativity. I'll be following your next challenge with even greater interest.

Same here. I have a lot of fun typing Hans' messages and I kind of hear his snarky remarks everytime I'm close to a slip.

You're the Spartan Smashing, Trifecta Trashing OCR Jedi Master. You can rise to the occasion.

Expected that response. I've been thinking of adding some sort of bonus mechanism for having certain people working together on the same mission. Figuring out who likes who isn't that hard, I'm more afraid I might cause an issue from what I've missed. Anyway, it's a nice idea but it got real complicated real fast and I put it on standby. Trying to keep it simple here, I've learned my lesson from so many super ambitious projects straight out of the box.

Me too, @DarK_RaideR. I have had a hell of a time of it over the past couple (ok, more like four or five) days. But every time I think of smoking, I hear Hans ordering the death of a random passerby and sending me his / her image with a big red X over it, asking if the cigarette was worth it. 

 

Today marks three weeks.

Whelp! So I was telling the SRLF(TM) how I perform much better on my challenges when there's a clear goal down the road (such as a scheduled OCR) and she mentioned her IKMF school doing a weekend Krav Maga Boot Camp this June in some ranch out of town (where the 2014 and this year's Legion Run will also be hosted). After some more information, mainly to know if any prior knowledge of techniques is required, I used those 20 seconds of beserker mode to apply and pay. Apparently it's a weekend of seminars, workouts, maybe hikes and BBQ with one final OCR at the end, including attackers who must be repulsed using the techniques previously taught. From what the SRLF(TM) tells me, this is meant to be an introductory crash course that should satisfy my curiosity and give me a good taste of what it's all about, meaning that in the end I should know for sure if I'm interested to try it out or not. And we're doing it together!
