ed tells me he's had an internet outage and might be a while…. sounds like a nightmare being stuck at home wo it tho I guess he has a phone at least

Also, I am still alive! Our household started quarantine about two weeks before the rest of the world and so far it has paid off.

Sometimes, over the years and different forums, Ed has attempted to wield the strange and wonderful powers claimed by The Administrator - to mixed results. A fair number of the more esoteric collapses of forum reality caused by such meddling seem to erase or reshape Villain's posts in some way.

Re: Battalion OOC thread by Slinger RingoSlinger Ringo, 29 Mar 2020 02:54

Yes hope you get well soon! And that goes to everyone as we all try to weather this. It's madness

Also Villain what did you mean about Ed merging posts? What's that?

Re: Battalion OOC thread by AlbionestAlbionest, 28 Mar 2020 18:30

Stay safe and get well, Ed!

Re: Battalion OOC thread by Slinger RingoSlinger Ringo, 21 Mar 2020 19:12

Just to keep up the apologies: I'm a little unwell (not the scary topical unwell, but still unwell) so might be a bit slow to respond, sorry. I am thinking that my inactivity might slow things down so I might declare after this next event cycle that bam, the gang's skipped a step and been upgraded to the four action stage, so one for each PC

I won't disregard any story stuff but I don't think we'd gain anything by dragging out the mechanical side of things any more than necessary

Re: Battalion OOC thread by EdcrabEdcrab, 21 Mar 2020 14:28

Before I twigged that you were making a joke I thought ed was out there merging posts again

and yeah I'm cool with the plan sorry should've said

Re: Battalion OOC thread by VillainVillain, 18 Mar 2020 10:12

I agree with Arling - we should do the thing Ringo said

Re: Battalion OOC thread by Slinger RingoSlinger Ringo, 17 Mar 2020 20:11

ANYWAY, we can go with the PCs meeting Deffshedd plan while everyone else scavenges then does Ridwyler's job? V didn't confirm if he wanted that but he also didn't say no!

Re: Battalion OOC thread by EdcrabEdcrab, 17 Mar 2020 15:30

I'm not entirely sure what you mean? If you're asking whether you'll miss out on anything when it comes to gathering resources or rep, no, but if you're asking if the story/narrative will change if you do things in person versus sending gang members to do them, then I guess yes, but only in the most minor of senses. Think how some games log every little thing you do, but with differences that only ever amount to a few changed lines of narration.

Re: Battalion OOC thread by EdcrabEdcrab, 14 Mar 2020 22:13

Understandable, Grag is Grag. He simply is.

So Ed you said you wouldn't do any trickery wit regards to us meetings gangs in person or sending our own gangers to meet them but does that mean there's no difference at all?But I'm ok with Slinger Ringo's idea regardless, it makes sense to try and get variety of things done per cycle.

Re: Battalion OOC thread by AlbionestAlbionest, 13 Mar 2020 20:34

Iriah: I haven't heard of those devs but their projects look really cool! You make it sound like a graet project and best of luck with it

Also I honestly forgot grag was a nacasei. jesus

Re: Battalion OOC thread by VillainVillain, 10 Mar 2020 16:13

Luqzt puts the palm of her talon on Grag's shoulder "I'll be straight with you Grag," Luqzt tells him as Arling and Hisata talk, "I forgot you were here."

Re: Battalion IC thread by VillainVillain, 10 Mar 2020 16:12

Yeah new event cycle, so getting your gangers to do the Ridwyler job is okay as by the time it starts you'll have gathered sufficient resources for it from scavenging.

I think I may have mentioned this to Iriah before but I was talking to someone who was a big fan of BBG's prior release, NeoScavenger, and it was a really weird (but cool) moment being able to think "huh, I know a guy working on the [sort of] sequel to that!". Sometimes the internet feels both small, and good

Re: Battalion OOC thread by EdcrabEdcrab, 09 Mar 2020 20:26

Thanks for waiting! So, spend a task and intel to scavenge, and then the main group goes to a playdate with Ridwyler or Deffshedd?

Or wait, we spent two tasks before so this is a new event cycle? Let's send everyone but the PCs and Riks to both Scavenge AND do the Ridwyler job this event cycle. And while the gang is doing those, we'll talk to Deffshedd and/or follow the plot ourselves

Re: Battalion OOC thread by Slinger RingoSlinger Ringo, 09 Mar 2020 08:35

"There's no official alt human prejudice in either the Warrens or the Red Eyes, but there are a bunch of tough bastards who like to fight as well as assholes that refuse to learn, so I can't say as it really makes much difference. Red Eyes keep back the dark. Beast or person, anything that comes out of there ain't good."

Arling nods to Hisata, "Speaking of good - ace on fast scrambling your way up here. Deffshedd isn't to be trusted until someone pins down who blew up my meet, but that don't mean we won't play nice. Same for Borel, so's if we can get between 'em, better to shake loose what they know."

He pulls out a datapad and motions to Hisata who pulls out one of her own so the two can securely sync. Quickly fliping through the updates from Hisata's pad, Arling shrugs and nods to the group. "I don't have the leverage to set a meet with Borel currently. Ridwyler said he might have something that'll boost our rep, but we are undergeared. I'm thinking Maryse, take your squad and Hisata an' rumble us some goods we can turn into supplies. The rest of us can either go talk to Deffshedd or see what Ridwyler is cookin' up."

There's something in his manner that suggests Arling is used to giving orders couched as suggestions, but it's clear Hisata thinks Arling is being overly deferential to the group.

Re: Battalion IC thread by Slinger RingoSlinger Ringo, 09 Mar 2020 08:27

Grag is a little confused as up until this moment he thought Nacasei counted as alt-humans. Or was it one of those stupid cultural things, like how the High Council refused to classify psions as alt-humans?

"Am I an alt human?" Grag asks aloud, because he's not good at the inner monologue thing. "Either way don't the Red eyes usually fight mutants with a whole lot more teeth. I think we don't have enough teeth to get on their bad side.."

"Oh. And the new place needs a bar."

"I'll take a corner office. Scratch that, I'll have a whole floor as a sim-gym." Kree scratches her nose with a toothpick, then sticks it back between her teeth. "But here in the present, are we going to have to worry about drawing their ire for our own, um, 'muties'?" she glances between the various alt-humans.

Re: Battalion IC thread by IriahIriah, 07 Mar 2020 16:26

I'm working for, on a game called Ostranauts. Blade Runner in space (or Alien without the alien). Or the Expanse + Firefly. All that kind of stuff :)

Re: Battalion OOC thread by IriahIriah, 07 Mar 2020 15:54

Yes, 1 Glory, 1 Intel, 1 Supplies. And I'll maybe let Arling get a word in here: he still hasn't had a chance to really interact with his own lieutenant!
