Some BWO discussion (formerly PS story)
A while ago I found this campaign outline written by Ace in a thread from 2012: https://www.hard-light.net/forums/index.php?topic=80527.msg1600629#msg1600629
I guessed that this was the plotline for the would-be successor of BWO given how PS was supposed to be the conclusion for the CE storys but I wasn't sure, any confirmation of that?

Yes, PS was supposed to be the conclusion of the CE stories. :)
Yeah, I know you were waiting for a very nice sig, in which I was quoting some very famous scientist or philosopher... guess what?!? I wont indulge you...

Why, you ask? What, do I look like a Shivan to you?!?

They worked on it but as everyone left it was cancelled like BWO pretty much.

Re: Paradigm Shift storyline?
So that is the PS plotline and not an unrelated project by Ace?

Ace had his own project with Twilight and sequel was supposed to be Babel Effect (i think BWO ended having some of the plot trough)

AFAIK Babel Effect wasn't about anything Sol-related (and hence set before BWO- though of course not excluding the possibility that some parts of the plot ended up in BWO) so this is either PS or a different campaign.

I’m still hoping that something could be done regarding the limbo BWO is currently in so that this continuity could have some form of closure.

It could be finished with a couple fredders and a couple months' work.

Is the "we need everything in HTL" a thing of the past now? AFAIK (what doesn't need to mean much in terms of BWO) there was still some old stuff.

So maybe something that the campaign upgrade guys could probably do if they had some help and they had interest.

While Twisted Infinities is an example of a more or less dead campaign that got safed and ultimatly released through FSCRP, AFAIK Admiral Nelson was involved in BWO drama at some point so I'm afraid it's not likely.

So BWO is about GTVI rebelling? I already guessed that with the "somewhat like MT" references though.

Mine as well. :)

 
Re: Paradigm Shift storyline?
Does any of you 2 have a list of potential available Fredders or asked around? Last news I heard on Discord (though from earlier this year) was that Battuta had no time, also he said "several".

No idea about the "chance".
We did settle on doing it in episodes. 3 or 4. :)
