Wow. I haven't posted in a really long time.
I had a fun little session the other night. The target was a nuclear warhead poised in it's chamber. It came out of my Taskerbot pool of about 400 targets. Incidentally, it's the same photo that is on the cover of Joe McMoneagle's book, "The Stargate Chronicles."
Most of the session was pretty well on target. I had an impression of an old-style, archetypal bomb (a black sphere with a fuse coming out of it.) It was somehow mounted in some kind of bracket. Recognizing it as symbolic data, I interpreted it as a "coming explosion" or "potential explosion." The latter ended up being the more appropriate. I wish I'd payed more attention to the impression of it also being 'mounted.' What I find interesting is the amount of information I could have extrapolated from that single symbol if I'd been paying more attention. Instead of just "potential explosion," in theory I could have come up with "An as of yet unexploded ordinance mounted on/in some kind of holding receptacle," and that would have just about wrapped it up. Maybe that's looking a gift horse in the mouth.
Another neat impression I got was that of a flying, missile shaped object. What the quick sketch of it doesn't show (and what I didn't log in the session) is that the pictogram was accompanied by a sense of 'attitude' that I'd describe as confident and almost predatory.
Eventually it became a matter of thinking it was complete AOL-drive and being completely off target, or on target and pointless to continue to describe what I already thought it was, just for the sake of looking amazing (drives me nuts when I see that.) So I declared my last AOL of a nuclear weapons facility and ended it. It's so fun when it works well. You can see the whole session, albeit a short one, here.
