The Colony Part 2

This post will be a short story that explains a bit of who Neev is


Neev woke up to the ding of a notification, throughout the ship, he could hear the droning of the loudspeakers. The leader of the colony was making an address, he figured as he automatically tuned out the sound. He meandered over to the break room and grabbed a coffee, as he chugged it back, he heard voices of the other colonists. “Drat,” he thought to himself, “I walked into another meeting again, didn’t I?” He smiled awkwardly as he sat down, pretending like he meant to come in here all along. He only half listened as his fellow colonists prattled about this and that, staff morale, rumours, gossip and semi truths. Neev was startled back into reality when he heard his name called; “so what is your opinion, Neev?” “Oh… uh…. well… I’d love to answer but I really need to get back to work, engineering duties y’know” he stammered as he headed for the door, pausing to take a scone from the snack tray. “Man, that was embarrassing,” he thought to himself, “I really need a way off this place”

The Colony pt. 1

Last friday, we played a tabletop game called Follow, we used the Colony sample story. In Follow, you create a major and a minor character to play as. My major character is named Neev and my minor character is Hugh Mann. Neev is a twenty-something year old engineer with a pretty casual disposition, he seems apathetic but is quite observant, though he can be rather snarky at times.


In Follow, each character has a want from the quest, and a want from another character, what Neev wants from the quest is change, while he wants knowledge from Experience (Olivia’s character.) In addition, he is the object of desire from another character; Charity, though he doesn’t know why. our current quest in our game is to raise the colony’s morale, a goal that has yet to be achieved
