    @cap @doug
    Nice. It’s great to hear you guys are on top of these things. In the back of my head I know you’re putting a lot more thought into this than even what we hear in the brainstorming sessions, and that since there’s such a huge gap between when sessions were recorded and when they actually air that there’s a lot we the audience just don’t know about yet, but questioning whether Narisa was a necessary character given her lack of serious development felt like it had to be done, even if just for the assurance that you guys do in fact know what you’re doing with her.

    Regarding the cultured-vs-natural crystals, I’ve been distinguishing them visually on the equipment by having Lightning Dogs crystals look like smooth cylinders, and Wastelander crystals looking like new age quartz spears with facets. I’m not sure that’s been canonized, but to me it is a pretty easy visual shorthand for people to grasp without a lengthy explanation.

    @delphi Oh yeah, never hesitate to call things into question. The episodes we’re releasing might be older discussions than now, but there’s still plenty of room for improvement and we’d be daft not to take influence from how things sit with all of you fine folks.

    Question time

    since Captain Scrap is a pirate does he have his own Jolly roger and have you guys come up with a name for his ship

    It's about "SHOW TIME" so drop by http://demonlordm.deviantart.com/

    Y’know… I don’t think we ever decided on the name of his ship. And he could have his own flag, but I think we always assumed it was a Jolly Roger. Maybe with a turtle skull on it? Either way, we’ve got another chance for a badass t-shirt.

    Hey @cap, could maybe Scrap get his “jolly roger” flag from Kid? Like she throws out her shirt because it’s old and full of holes, and the crew thinks it looks badass? Good excuse to give Kid a new shirt.

    @doug Might make more sense the other way around. Wearing an enemy’s flag “cuz it’s cool” sounds like a pretty punk rock thing to do. Might be too much of a re-tread of Ezra and a Hondo to give Kid and Scrap any kind of chemistry, but you can damn well bet she’d be an asset to his salvaging of certain items.

    @cap do you have any designs on the ship yet? Seeing as it’s a scrapping ship, I assume it has a dredging arm but if it’s an ocean, that’s gonna have to be a huge arm. Submersibles would make the operation more efficient.

    @kishaan Nope. No final design yet. Haven’t even started. I’ve been thinking of it as a flotilla of some kind. A big main ship for stripping and a fleet of specialized other ships of various kinds for scavenging and defensive purposes. Obviously to keep with our theme he needs a main vehicle that can be actionfigurized… it’ll be interesting to see how we draw the line between practicality on-screen and for action figure-worthy proportions. I’d hate to propose something as absurdly big as GI Joe’s USS Flagg.

    @cap What about robots made from scrap? It would kind of feed into the mind set that you brought up in the podcast.

    Hmmm we haven’t discussed any robot types outside of the A.I. society… definitely something to consider!

    I snuck a few unsanctioned non-polar bots into the Inktober feed when nobody was looking #BoxotronForever

    @cap that would be the best reason to have different styles of robot designs

    There was some unsanctioned Cap’n Scrap stuff in Inktober as well; this first one is sort of the land-going salvaging vehicle/city that @cap was describing in his flotilla explanation

    And an alternate take on the actual character, with a roll cage/roof rack bolted on to his shell filled with junk. this is more Scrap as lone wanderer than Scrap as Cap’n of a Fleet though

    New episode points
    1: trying to understand if you are trying to figure out to put exhausts on the Domus cars? As Doug, I think, put it save that for the return to earth. Maybe the exhausts are used to keep dust particles out of the slapped together engines.

    2: In the palladium RPG rifts, there is an area that makes laser guns and they pit artificial sounds and movement in it to match regular guns because people are familiar to it and like the sound. So who’s to say someone wouldn’t want that for s quieter car

    3. For the convoy to start, I like the idea that this is all new equipment and it has the factory colors and Domus markings. No special paint until they are stranded

    4: for design of items I love the idea, much like tony wanting cats to be the subconscious Lucifer of the dog world, the designs of like the Frisbee and collars are all in the subconscious of dogs, it is write in their dna
