For those who have asked or have considered asking about the flooding currently occurring in West Virginia: Our family is safe. Our house is up on a mountain and far enough from the flood plains to not be directly affected. However, there are many people in our area who are affected. If you wish to help those in need, please contact the WV division of the American Red Cross or the WV VOAD.

I wonder who might want to keep you away from school...
I bet I know... What was THAT?!

That's a data ghost. An Avatar left behind by a former student or teacher. The school is full of them. They're projected by virtual reality units all over campus.

Legend has it that a great hacker built the VR system before going mad and murdering someone. It's the most impressive VR ever built. Now he rots away in Angband prison, his genius wasted.

Most of the ghosts are friendly and helpful, though, like Nearly Nadless Norm here.
"Nearly Na--"?
DON'T ASK!
