Re: 261/1323 Nieshle Startown OOC

Ok, so I am going to move things forward, do people want to role play something during the night, or straight to the boarding of the ship? I myself would prefer: Boarding of the Ship -> Jump -> Dietsidr orbit. Orbit for me. Gonna spend the jump going over the gear, making sure that everyone has wha...

Re: 261/1323 Nieshle Startown OOC

Note: Bear with me, my style of presenting arguments is pretty bare-bones, it can come off as standoffish, it's not meant to be, it's just the way I write and I don't have unlimited time to go through and make it pretty/comforting. Phil has a point here. It looks like Dee's Batman is insulting Nell?...

Re: Equipment Lists

Those without the money, leverage their presitige, but those with the money, wouldn't leverage it in the open; they work through layers. Exactly. There's a reason DKZ is off scene and his Aide is doing the negotiations. The turbine, or any generator was going to be red-lined, power can be taken off...

Re: Equipment Lists Discussion

I like my games complicated.

The game part of RPG is resource management. Most people prefer HP, I like equipment too. YMMV.

Re: Equipment Lists

Absolutely! I've done SAR work, and yes, when you're a mission principal, all you're thinking about is the job. It's the upper echelons that have to think of the larger picture. I was lucky enough to do some work for a bunch of high 'soc' people and their thoughts were always 'ok, this is a necessit...

Re: Equipment Lists

Nice, round even numbers based on the pharmaceutical industry IRL. Figured that the population here is lower but that the population in just the subsector is more than plenty to make up for that. And that's just if the biotechnology is of civilian use, not military. Military applications are worth 1...

Re: Equipment Lists

Note: We'll be supplying/paying local forces out of our salaries, once total required capacity of crew is determined. We'll be purchasing Cloth armor and Assault Rifles for the locals, given that their TL is around Terran Renaissance, they should be familiar enough with fire-arms to cope. They can d...

Re: 262/1323 Nell taking a call from DZK

Hrmm, translated from bureau-speak and doing a quick symbolic mapping (TL12 Broker1), it sounds like: •'We're worried that some other corporation will muscle in on the operation.' Use of other is ambiguous here. Could mean another corporation or it could mean any organisation not governmental. •Tin...

Re: 261/1323 Nieshle Startown OOC

Cool with me. From my MUD/MUSH days, the rule was to keep dialog simple, every one has a small bit of narrative control over every character in the scene because of the asynchronous nature of the medium. That way conversations can move along. Decisions and actions are never made for others, but simp...
