I apologize in advance for the length (~2000 words) of this "synopsis." The extensive universe of Ruth Means Compassion
(RMC) has a core gathered in this downloadable PDF
* but has a number of minor additions on the SFC and elsewhere. It's centered on Sith Warrior Ruth Niral with regular appearances from Imperial Agent Wynston and late-timeline contributions from Jedi Knight Larr Gith. To date it spans a little over fifty years. This summary contains spoilers for the Sith Warrior line and the Imperial Agent line
; it does not describe RMC's ending except in the last section. The RMC standalone thread-and-PDF also has spoilers for the Jedi Knight line.
Pre-game and prior to the central narrative of RMC (no spoilers):
Game and timeline 1 of RMC, corresponding roughly to Ruth's dictionary definition
"pity or compassion":
Post-game and the remainder of timeline 2 of RMC, corresponding roughly to Ruth's secondary dictionary definition "sorrow or grief":
Post-game timelines 2.5 and 3 of RMC, corresponding roughly to Ruth's tertiary dictionary definition "contrition or remorse" (this was not actually planned in advance, I was aware only of definition #1 when I created Ruth):
Don't Call them Ruth-Less
picks up where RMC left off and its dedicated thread
, along with this summary, uses detailed spoilers all over RMC's endgame
. Pretty much everything in this timeline is humor rather than drama.
