I wonder what a casual, uninitiated viewer would make of this. I imagine it would probably be incomprehensible.What I would give to be able to read Infinite Jest’s Eschaton chapter again for the first time. I distinctly remember being in a restaurant when I read it because the other patrons kept looking at me as I tried unsuccessfully to stifle laughter.
I used Sam Potts’ character map of Infinite Jest as a starting point and then expanded upon it. This isn’t meant to be a comprehensive play-by-play; I only listed the main events that lead to the scuffle at the end of the chapter. When it is clear that a particular player launched a warhead I have tried to indicate that. Otherwise the vectors come from the state. It is not clear exactly how many players participated in this game, but it is at least nine and not more than twelve. Eight of them are named and the player representing REDCHI is not named.
This is a first draft and I realize that there may be mistakes. My head hurts too much to think about it right now, but if you have suggestions of corrections please let me know.
