One thing I forgot to tell you last week is that I moved Torgo Pendragon, Robin’s best friend, into their house. And he began immediately flirting with Robin’s wife, who was totally into it.
I decided he could use a vacation… in the future!
He landed in the future on his ass. I guess he was distracted by thinking about swimming pools.
He had great chemistry with one of the first people he met.
I’m not so sure about her makeup, but I had Robin invite her out on a date anyway. It didn’t go well. She sat down at a different table and they ate dinner separately. Then she left.
Robin returned to the community center and put in a few hours on his latest novel. The futuristic floating holo-computer is pretty sweet, but apparently in the future you cannot sit down while using a computer.
Is that… a person dressed in a cardboard robot costume?
The next day, Robin met up with the guide dude of the future to get an assignment. The guide dude’s name is easy to remember: Emit Relevart. (It’s “time traveler” spelled backward.)
But aside from having a painful name, Emit has pretty cool duds.
I’m glad to see that long coattails have returned to fashion in the future.
Emit sent Robin out on several quests which had him doing things like digging up piles of trash in the Wastelands in the middle of the night, in the pouring rain.
Not sure why the game won’t let them have a shovel. They have to dig everything up with their hands like dogs. Sad!
