Seaman: Day Six

Posted by JohnTheGamer (341 posts) -

Leonard Nimoy greets me and makes sure to remind me to not feed the seamen all the insects as I may run out of food eventually if I do. He also elaborates on what happened the previous day.

I adjust their environment and feed them an insect for the first time; one gillman eats half and the other got the other half. After a few minutes of coaxing them to talk to me, one of them asks whether I’m in school. After answering yes he tells me that getting an education is a good thing and the girls in short skirts are an added bonus. I tell him I’m studying to be an accountant and he then informs me that I’ll be one of the few people to know how to cheat on my taxes. I begin talking with the other gillman to not “pick favorites” and he asks me if I work and what I do.

While talking to them they also used the bathroom, Leonard Nimoy had informed me that they are to begin doing this. After a few minutes of inactivity with the gillmen I move over to the insect terrarium and spray it down with some water. I believe one of the insects just entered into a cocoon. I switch back to the gillmen and while seeing if I can pick up the gillmen’s waste I find out I can move the three rocks in the tank.

I name the other gillman Poseidon and see that the remaining insects have formed cocoons and leave for the night.

It would be awesome if you could post all of these in one Topic/Blog post labeled "Seaman: Diaries" or something so that we could read your whole experience with Seaman in one place :D
 
although separate Topics for each day kind of makes it exciting

This is riveting.

@luce: I'll probably do something like that at the end and sum everything up in one blog. 
@DanielJW: Thanks for both comments.

You should call Poseidon by saying "Poseidon, look at me!"
 
On that note, I wonder how Seaman will respond to auto-tuned voices, or someone with a radically different voice acting like the owner. Or multiple people. I talked to my cousin's gillman for a little bit but didn't get much from him.
