In Response To: Infinity story criticism (Forrest of B.org)

I think there should have been a rewind to the start of M1 where the Marathon is destroyed by the pfhor, and then you work for them after resocialization. Then one for Pathways, where the dreaming god awakes and destroys Earth, and maybe one in 490 BC where you have to help the Persians defeat the Greeks at Marathon.

: I put forth that it would have been better to either have the story take
: place entirely in the "Tycho" wing of the timey-wimey ball; or
: better still, to have elaborated further on variants of the
: "Durandal" wing. Begin with a Ne Cede Malis / AMS-variant
: immediately after "All Roads Lead To Sol", in the M2 timeline.
: Then rewind to a point near the end of M2, followed by something
: different, that still fails anyway. Then a rewind further toward the
: beginning of M2, followed by something even more different, that still
: fails. Followed by a rewind to before the start of M2, waking up earlier
: ("Rage" part 1), which STILL fails...

: And then, the dramatic turning point... you know what, screw it, we're going
: back to the end of M1, staying behind, getting captured by the Pfhor, and
: working with Tycho. See how Durandal and his stupid
: plans-that-get-the-universe-destroyed like that. ("Despair")
: ...ok, that failed too, but lets try this... ("Rage" part 2).
: Goddamnit! But we're almost there... How about this one?
: ("Envy") At last! It works!
