Silo13, I've looked at page 2 of the thread and I didn't have any problems with viewing them. Maybe you need to clear out your cache or maybe try a different browser. That might help.
What a concept, having a huge jungle garden inside a spacefaring vessel. It's like Eden on wheels..er... something like wheels... Eden in motion! Neno would feel right at home there, assuming he were conscious, and there weren't any giant horned snakes around. Unless he was hungry, which he usually is...
I went and looked at your gallery. The picture of SILO is awesome! Now I can put a face with the character. I'm wondering about the hair, though. Don't your posts describe it as spiky and purple?
The 4 eyed concept, with motile eyestalks, is intriguing, The stationary eyes are pretty big, indicating you were engineered to function in low light.
About those motile stalks... are they prehensile enough that you can look behind yourself as the other eyes are looking forward if you wanted to? 360 degree vision.. what a concept! That would make it nearly impossible to sneak up on you.

Will our Hero survive?
Will he be rescued before he freezes to death?
Will they reach him before he suffocates to death?

Hey Deson: For Tentickles, it was just a matter of having enough time. She told me the Press Corp was more time intensive then even she had imagined. I was bummed about not having her as an addition, she wouldn't have even had to change her avatar if she was aboard the Yydryl.

By the way everyone, I'm going to be gone for about a week so don't panic if I don't get a post up. Hopefully I will be able to get some form of internet connection going, but it doesn't look likely at this point.
I will be back soon, so don't kill me off if you can help it.
The advantage to this is that they're less likely to be killed senselessly, because it would hit harder than some faceless redshirt no one cares about. The downside is that, since their death would now have more emotional impact, they are more likely to be Killed Off For Real to prove how bad the new villain is. If they're successful enough, they just might graduate from Mauve Shirt and become a "Gold Shirt" as part of the supporting cast or even the main cast.
I was writing down some ideas for the rescue the other day and couldn't stop writing. After the "rescue" is over I might post it as a pdf labeled "Alternate Ending."
