Set up:

The year is Space Age 21, The end of the conflict that has came to be known as the Decade Conflict, a large scale war between the Earth Union and Martian confederate the first interplanetary war, and the first large scale conflict fought with Mobile Suits in it'e entirety, has been at a close for two years. The two years following not being the peace most brokered for, Martian City states outside of the Martial Confederation's jurisdiction war for one another, and the asteroid belt and outer martian sphere are plagued with pirates and merc bands warring for money and territory, picking the frontier apart, something one time hidden by the war efforts during what was supposed to be an era of spacial expansion, but where a new Frontier lies law usually doesn't yet.

This is evident most notably in the asteroid belt, where the post war arms trade from scrap has led several of these one time small mercenary, pirate, and outlaw bands to become paramilitary groups, if not small nations in their own right, alliances forming just as quickly as betrayals, some areas and groups more stable than others, others complete wildcards, it's a big place, and it keeps getting smaller, some stabilizing forces have emerged but trade routes are still at the mercy of Protection 'Taxes' levied by the local warlords, slowing most trade between Jupier and the inner spheres of the solar system the only areas safe from attack, relatively being Mars sphere, and the other side in Jupiter Fleet controlled space. Jupiter having a big stake in more stable shipping lanes has been goading mars and earth to take action, while getting mars to muster a token force to deal with their own Martian sphere piracy issues and the outer fringes of the asteroid belt, the efforts haven't done much leading Jupiter to strike deals with some of the bigger warlords, bringing some stability to it, but not enough, the lucrative hauls of Helium-3 still a tantalizing target.

Meanwhile Earth sphere seemingly prosperous from afar isn't much better, mostly ruled from the colonies the earth lies beneath, while the mass exodus nearly 30 years earlier to the colonies and beyond have lessened the strain on it's eco systems, a good deal of the population still struggles day to day in the massive cities, and while things looked up before the war the economic strain caused by the massive ten year long conflict with the Mars Confederation has left it's mark. Using the post war economy several corporations and formerly undeveloped countries now booming due to wartime natural resource trade have been using the time to consolidate economic bubbles, giving hope of some stabilization to come to some civilians. This growth welcomed by the Earth Union, but leading quickly to the formations of Monopolies stabilizing as they seem to be in the short term, government and private sector seemingly merging more and more than it already was Pre-War, at least more openly. While seemingly grim the changes have been welcomed by most as more and more of earth is recovering due to the effort, so most turn a blind eye.

Due to this there's massive opportunity, a peacetime most consider without peace in yet another era of change the next few months could be easily what determines what happens for the next century or more, as the fate of the outer, and even inner solar system is about to be shaken again, with a fledgling nation, and pirate crew ahead.


-----------------------------------------------

Major Factions:

Earth Union: Founded in 2085 long before the begining of what would be come the space colonization programs in the year 2090, shortly after what has become known as the third World War. The Earth Union was borne from the restructuring of the previously disbanded UN that occurred in the year 2073. The organization is more binding than the UN but not a nation in a strict sense, it organized the world into mostly a few sects of blocs, done by combining several nations, despite this, even over a century later, there are still evident national identities, the blocs mostly done for economics and government representation. As time went on the Union has grown more powerful but most of it's power is still held in struggles between blocs, with various families and corporation, dependent on the bloc holding allot of sway in the ongoings and elections. (Going to list the blocs and how they work a bit later, they're sorta factions-sorta not, you don't have to be deeply tied to any of them for any characters here)

Mars Confederate: Founded by several martian city states in a bid to make Mars, or the majority of it less reliant on Earth, it's ratification with the Olympus accords marked the begining of the space age, with the year 2205AD becoming 0001 SA wile not completely independent from earth in the beginning the Confederate as of now is. Not as tight knit or binding as the Earth Union is the Confederate is very much in growing pains, having originally been formed as a means to garner some level of economic-not governance-strength on it's own via allowing several of it's major city states, to trade more openly with the private sectors in Jupiter and the Asteroid belt, they were not prepared for the post war reality that hit them after the conclusion of the Decade Conflict. While during war time they were unified, mostly out of need for a war that snowballed from a, at least claimed, un affiliated martian terror group on an Earth Embassy, and millitary base on mars. In the post war however there is a large rift between the officials of various branches as they decide how to lead and turn what was formally a pact forged out of economic need, to one that now needs to be one of full governance.

Elegia: A former PMC that was based on mars and served under the employ of the Mars Confederate. Led by Sierra Hargrave, they now reside in the asteroid base Xi-2322, formerly a mining colony, turned pirate base Hargrave took it over during her groups exodus from mars in the late stages in the war, taking not only her own troops but civilian refugees and deserters from the Martian Militia, who wanted to leave as well, though she was reluctant to take them on, especially the civilians she did anyways. Most claim it was a power play to strike out with a big force, others think it was an act of pity for those effected by the war on mars who the Confederate had forsaken at the time. If one where to ask her she'd say it's both. The group provides an area of retaliative stability, by asteroid belt standards at the least, the asteroid is a haven for Mercs, Arms Dealers, pirates and shipping captains alike, and while criminal activity is abundant, the area has became safer for transports between Jupiter and the inner system leading to quite a bit of backing from the Jupiter Fleet, of which Sierra is using to generate her slice of the frontier into a nation, born as a place for the rejects of society that don't fit in there. Her rules are simple, don't fuck her or the people under her protection over, and she won't space you out of an airlock.

Highway Star sometimes called Bonaparte's Merry Band or the Ghost of the Frontier: Neither are an official faction name, but rather the name of a ship, and the moniker given to it's crew by those who have interacted with them. Led by the captain Lance 'The masked pirate' Bonaparte as the name would suggest, the crew has been an active force in the asteroid belt since the tail end of the war much like Elegia. The crew has a reputation for piracy but most of it's business actually comes from smuggling and mercenary work, against other pirates mostly as well as the occasional plundering of vessels, mostly on what most consider the wrong part of the belt, the part closest to Mars. Due to the ships seeming ability to vanish in between attacks at times due to it's maneuverability, as well as it's seeming ability to usually catch it's prey unaware it's been dubbed the Ghost of the Frontier, becoming, like it'e enigmatic captain some what of a legend. (This is the main faction, the protagonist one if you would)

-----------------------------------------------

Tech Notes:

MS are powered by a sort of Fusion reactor similar to Minovsky reactors from the UC. MS also come from smaller mechs known as powered loaders, which where used in the later parts of the 21st century as military machines known as Powered Walkers, before the invention and wide adoption of the larger, mobile suit.

Beam Weapons are pretty much like you see in most Gundam works, but as of yet haven't really taken off, they were mostly used on ships up until the end of the war, they've gotten compact in the last few years of the war, but ballistic weapons have remained a popular choice for allot of applications and are seen just as frequently if not a tad more so than beam weaponry.

Gundanium armor isn't impervious, but is a more durable material as most as you would of guessed, it's invention leading to more rail-guns, melee weapons, and beam weapons on the field though larger rounds of normal ammo can also take a toll on it, the alloy was also first made on mars (who made the first Gundam's eight years ago) but has since been leaked to several corporations and is accessible and manufactured even in the asteroid belt, it's still expensive though. Due to it's weight it's often only employed by key parts of a machine, also reducing costs.

-----------------------------------------------

Timeline of past events:

2031: Later than intended, Space X sends it's first manned mission to Mars, the small group of people making it there six months later, establishing the first off world permnant base. A few decades later the last member of the mission died, all regarded as heroes by the scientific communities.

2049: Research into AI tech is reaching an all time high, though it would be the better part of a century before the breakthough for a true 'Smart' AI could be made.

2073: Growing global tensions as world resources diminish result in the disbanding of the UN, though historian's say, despite officially existing the orginization was more or less rendered defunct years before, due to it's lack of power and being disregarded by most member nations at that point.

2077: A public coup backed by the last few countries with royal families in europe succeeds following rising tensions with failing economies in most of South Western Europe and the British Isles, established at least publically on the principles of Noblesse Oblige. The establishment led to a ressurection of a few old noble familes in houses as well as new ones, and established a consitutional monarchy that controlled most of south western europe.

2078: World War three errupts after growing tensions between an alliance of middle eastern states and the European Leauge rose. Due to alliances the US, was dragged in on europes side, while China was drug in on side of the Middle East. Breaking agreements with both sides several non Commonwealth european countries stayed out of the conflict, including Russia.

2083: The end of World war three is brokered. During the conflict mulititudes of cities were bombed, and no less than five nuclear detonations occured in the last few months (Thankfully they were the only ones at that) the peace treaty known as the Treaty of Kiev was drafted in Russia who's intervention in the war (after presure from the US at first to stay out of it, or join them) had helped bring it to a head.

2085: Earth Union is established, many economic reforms are brought to head as well as a rebuilding policy to help countries still not fully recovered from the war. The proposal for the Space colinization project is drafted and approved.

2090: Construction begins on four orbital elevators, made in part to help with the colonization proceedings, as well as serve as struts for an eventual solar ring array to help elivated energy issues on earth. A perminante moon base is stablished at Armstrong Point, eventually becoming the 'Hub of Luna'

2125: The final (at the time) proposed orbital colony is finished, the seven proceeding it already filled and finished. The first of which known as Arcadia serving as the meeting seat of the Earth Union House of Representitives. Colony Corp, a then government corperation is bought out by private firm Clarkson Electronics, mostly for their tooling and resources, the EU uses the money, offically on welfare programs for the colonies.

2128: Ministry of Space science director Hugo Farnsworth proposes a long term Mars colonization project, and begins recruiting people to work on terraforming prospects, as well as partnering with Clarkson Electronics and Vision Aerospace for construction of vehicles .

2130: The discovery of Micro Fusion using Helium-3 prompts a new reactor technology race as well as new intrests in collecting said Helium from Jupiter. Within the next three years the Jupiter Fleet is established a coopted project between the Ministry of Space and Enegy conglomerates from Earth.

2135: Following years of trials successful small scale tests of terriforming on ravaged and desert areas of earth are successful, allowing for a rejuvination of some areas of earth as well as leading to promising news for those working on the Mars project. Later that year a craft would be sent with numrous probes to impact Mars and deliver some of these decives, the mission dubbed Genesis.

2137: Following two years of waiting, the first 'Habitable zones' on Mars appear. Though it is projected that it would take another decade for the planet to be habitable.

2150: Due to the conditions of mars, the push to send a team there increases, the first mission of many is launched with a small, but impressive 50 people being sent to test conditions for a year before larger investment. Work on a new evolution to the Mobile Loaders used to construct the colony begins for help on mars. General J. Marston sees potential in the research and gets Department of Defense Research (DoDR) to pour in funding as well.

2152: The second wave of Mars colonists is sent off, the missions co-oping tech from long range astroid belt mining missions both manned and unmanned as well as programs started by the Earth Union promising Land to any Earth Citizen's willing to engage in helping the establishment of their territory. Intrest sky rockets as a second landboom occurs over the next decade and a half.

2167: Ares City, the first martian City reaches a population of 750,000, while far larger than any city on the surface of mars, other cities continue to see an upward soar as well as rural areas. This influx of people leaving earth yet again sees allot more land being claimed and rejuvinated using the same tech as used to terraform mars in the first place. During this time the Mobile Worker project was finished helping not only speed building speeds of new buildings on mars allowing for the quick growth but also leading to an even larger industrial boom on Luna. During this time frame the military Mobile Worker project was still underway, though many were advocating it being dropped in favor of the Armed Loaders the military had already deployed. Secretly the project continued. More and more mining establishments in the astroid belt pop up.

2201: The colony of Zehpyr rebels declaring independance when a rebel militia uses Armed Loaders and Mobile Pods stolen from the military to take over. The Earth union responds swiftly as General Graves, Marston's successor unviels the new 'Mobile Suit' while a far cry from later itterations, the mech's mobility was unmatched in space, and it's firepower and armor allowed it to take the colony as well. Due to the success of the queling of the Rebellion more funding if poored into the prototype weapon.

2205: Due to presure from the civilian city states of mars, as well as private corprations and the Space agency alike, the Mars Confederate is established, holding 20 of the 35 citystates of mars. While still a technical territory of mars, this allowed them to hold a small militia force (though like Luna's was still part of Earth Military joint command) and entitled free trade with jupiter and Mars as well as more lax taxes. The Earth Prime Minister declared this as the begining of a new age where Earth was no longer the sole propritor of humanity in the Sol system, leading to a new Calander era known as Space Age.

SA 0004: The first mass production mobile suit is rolled out. The MS-04 Waff. Mars begins bids for rights to use the tech.

SA 0007: Mars is allowed use of Mobile Suit technology, Earth even sends some of their new frontier Model, the OZ-06 Leo. A more rugged version of their Zaku II, made a bit cheaper, but at the same time more suited to conditions like the still vast iron deserts of Mars.

SA 0009: A Martian terrorist group conducts an attack on the Earth Embassy in Ares City the capitol of the Confederation. Tensions mount fruther between the confederate and earth, as various links too confederate cabneit officals links the attacks. Meanwhile in earth controlled Martian Territory, tensions mount between civilians and Riot officers. Later in that year what is now known as the Decade conflict breaks out.

SA 0014: The first Gundam is deployed by mars, Co-opted and based off of Clarkson Electronics' GM design being adopted by the EU forces, it is armored in a new Alloy known as gundanium, and is the first mobile suit with a proper beam rifle.

SA 0017: The war rages on, most fighting had been pushed from Mars off into space, but Mars incursions into earth sphere were usually short lived and limited to hit and run attacks. Sending secret ambassadors to Luna, Mars and a sepratist force in Luna, spear headed by corperations fed up with Earth Union requisitions of their facilities hatch a plan to steal the defensive array on Luna consisting of it's newly made long range mass driver. The mass driver is taken later that year and used by the Luna militia to take out one of Earth's Orbital defense platforms. This opened the hole for a D-day style invasion by Mars.

SA 0019: The war which had been loosing support by Earth before an invasion by mars, was now at an all time low approval rating, leading to the opening of negotiations between the parties. While no more than 23% of earth was ever occupied and only 2 out of eight space colonies, being sandwhiched by Mars, the Moon, and the martian incursion gurilla's had forced earths hand completely. Later that year the Treaty of Olympus Mons was drafted handing over martian independance, as well as even less oversight on Luna, and the destruction of the mass drivers on not only Luna, but Mars' only mass driver on Deimos as well. The Earth was still entitled to 25% of it's bases on Mars, but would begin pulling out over the next fifteen years once their assets were fully taken care of, a new Earth Embassy was build in Armstrong city, while a martian one was housed on the head space colony.

SA 0021: Our story begins.

OKAY so yes as you can see in parenthesis at the end of the factions bit there, the Highway star's crew is kind of the focus, Lance Bonaparte (and like the original incarnation in Keni's OG RP years ago, he's my second take on making a Char clone)is my main PC, Elegia is also to a degree a protagonist faction of sorts as well, so I'd prefer main PC's to be from one of those, though Elegia PC's will still be assigned as an Attache to Lance's crew for a job from Hargrave.

Others from other factions are welcome, and there may be, if requested a list of minor factions, though it won't be super comprehensive or detailed because I want to keep some mystery to what we'll be encountering, most minor factions won't really be more than an annoyance that may pop up once so really isn't needed, others will be tied to bigger factions IE spec ops groups in the Earth union, etc. (and of course there's room for your own within these if you want some bad ass mofo who is literally the Navy SEALS copypasta guy as a rival) It should be noted, I don't know how involved these other factions will be so I probably won't allow main PC's from any of them unless you're okay with waiting for a few chapters, and plan on defecting. (and in the EU's case that probably won't be for awhile even if they have some bases on Mars soil)

This is also, gonna be the discussion thread, I'm gonna follow what keni did with a separate character bio thread, to keep things more organized. Also holy crap I got it up today...two hours to spare but still today. I'll also be posting up a glossary of common slang terms and short hand employed in the world as well later.

Questions, comments, general concerns and such we know the drill by now, can now be voiced here. Bio thread will be up later tonight, well more likely tommrow early morning, since I have a few to knock out here soon, and well there's gonna be questions before you guys can do it as well.

Just so I understand the timeline correctly, in less than 100 years humans will be a space-faring species with advanced technologies and enough of a population to colonize Earth space colonies, Mars, some asteroids, and some areas around Jupiter? That does seem a tad soon to me, maybe add a minimum of an extra 150 years.

Zeon's RedComet
December 13, 2016, 3:46 AM
I can add another century on it maybe a tad more, if you feel it's that big of thing that should be changed, but I don't think I'm gonna add 150. A bit of extra time, and I'm considering this a bit less from a tech standpoint (I've seen other sci fi with more sooner) and more from you raise a decent point on expansion logistics. As well as I'd be able to work it in a bit more to the stagnation of the Earth Union as a large potential plot point.

- - - Updated - - -

Also it should be noted Earth has a far lower population than it does IRL, due to allot of people being on the colonies, and further. Kind of like the Universal century, UC's earth has far fewer people than IRL earth does right now due to people being funneled off of it and spread further. That's a good point though on logistics, I'll bump it up a bit. Probably 100 or a tad more.

Twitch
December 13, 2016, 3:49 AM
Whoops, did not mean to type 150, I meant 100 (I must have fat-fingered that). I know that we keep some realism and technicalities out if the RPs, but as you said logistically I do not see that type of expansion is just 100 years from now.

Yeah logistics, tech like you said, eh like Gundam it's self I'm just gonna slap some neat sounding techobabble over it with some vaugly scientfic sounding things, also proud Star Trek tradition.

Space Age will still be SA 0021, since it was established mostly as propaganda thing of earth going "LOOK HOW FAR WE'VE COME!' when the Confederate was started, despite still owning, taxing, and controlling most of Mars.

- - - Updated - - -

Okay I adjusted the dates, the SA founding is 2205 (made it 05 because it sounds better than 04 to me) plus the 21 from SA, so 2226AD.

There's also some adjustments to the dates of the Earth union and so on. (as of this post I'm gonna adjust that one a tad more, so it'll probably read as you read this 2104, gonna make it 2090 to just bridge it's gap to the UN's fall a bit closer)

- - - Updated - - -

I'll probably also make a Pre-SA timeline as well, and add it to the OP tomorrow. It'll convey a bit on how the mass migration happened. Mind you the astroid belt, mostly is sparsely populated aside from renegades, and other crazies and the rare odd group trying to make a new life out there, but that's rare and an exception to the rule.

Are beam melee weapons allowed? For some Mobile Suits it just makes more sense to have beam sabers over physical blades.

I have a solid idea for one character, but I would like some input from the group for the second character. Should they be rough and tough like Sergeant Major Johnson from Halo, or be a Carl? Carl is a cross of Patrick from 00 and Caboose from Red vs Blue; ie he is a complete idiot, shams out of everything, draws inappropriate graffiti everywhere, does not make any smart decisions (ever), screws up even the most simplest of orders, makes you face palm all the time, yet somehow pulls off the most impossible tasks.

Yeah beam Melee weapons are the norm, sorry if I phrased it weirdly.

Even MS that have conventional round other wise. Granted heat and physical blades are around too but are pretty much not the norm for most militaries at this point.

As for your question personally I say Johnson. But I'm bias'd I love the hell out of Johnson. That said Carl would be kind of fun if only because I can then make use of the trillions of Carl memes in the Chat. Either one would fit in pretty well with either of the major military's too.

BTW, What are the main grunts for the main factions (Earth,Mars etc)? Also how rare/common Gundams are in this setting? Also outside G, is there any other era limitations?

1. Don't quite know yet still puzzling it out.

2. Realitively, they're not the most common sight on the battlefield, but they're not insanely rare as time goes on, if a person has the right connections they can get one, especially since allot have popped up in the salvage market after the war, but have been scooped up, it basically comes down to having the right connections.

3. No. There's also no real moratorium on stuff outside of gundam either. Also for G, I won't say it's strictly forbidden, but MTS is, and they'll basically just be a flamboyant Custom Gundam. Devil Gundam need not apply. You'll have to have a good reason for something like that though.

- - - Updated - - -

Also it goes without saying things like Moonlight Butterfly, Nanomachines, Photon Torpedos, Tractor beams, Trans-Am, hyper mode, NT-D etc. also aren't there.

This sounds cool. I will work on a character bio. This time I think I will be a bit more polished from the last go round. I will also be going a whole different rout with the character. I will watch for the character bio thread.
The new guy will be more of an up close and personal fighter/ personality. Last time was a distance fighter this time more of a happy go lucky psychopath with dilutions of grandeur. Think Han Solo and The "The Joker" had a kid.

Just for my head, we are pirates/mercs with a char clone for a boss. Are we already part of the crew, or are we The new recruits trying out for the team. How will we fit in here. It helps making the bio at least for me it helps.

Well he's gonna be going to Xi-2322 to pick up some fresh blood, but you can be part of the crew already as well if you want. The fresh blood may be easier to work with for now until I get a bio up for Lance in a bit. (It'll be awhile, not to long bit a bit as I just woke up)

@Exia I like the shining Gundam thing, but I think it's Transformation may be a bit much. IBO suits are fine as long as it isn't Vidar or Kimaris, because I'm dibsing both of those.

The more I think about it, I may do a Sergeant Major Johnson character and a Carl! Just so Carl can always have someone to annoy since the other PCs will not always be around. Is there a limit to how many characters we can have? Because my first character idea would mesh well with gundammonkey's weirdo, "SgtMaj Johnson" and Carl will get along oh so well, a fourth character will continue a tradition that I started a while ago, and I have no clue what Exia, Dom, or ZRC's characters will be about (but I am guessing that they will all be "serious" types).

For anyone that wants to have a laugh and educate them on Carl:

Depends on your definition of serious.

That said I've ran a good few non serious characters. Especially in the SEED RP's. (Granted it also had some of my most serious lol)

I try to run the middle ground between them having some humor and being serious.

I should take the time and read the SEED RPs some day, but I guess that my own personal views on SEED Destiny prevent me from doing so.

Is there a limit to how many characters we can have?

I'll sleep on it a bit tonight.

Normally I'm not that stringent on it, and just leave it to a person to know there limits, unless they go overboard with it. I'll post something with the bio thread later/tommorow.

To answer dom's question about what MS the major factions use:

Earth Union:
Standard Grunts: GMIII, Dagger Units, Jegans are slowly being adopted. Colonial defenses and patrolls are mostly opted out to Older Zaku's and iterations of the GM line. The Graze is also a common sight but most units where made on factories lost on Mars (as such they're slowly being phased out by them but Phased in my the Mars faction) Gelgoog's are also widely used.

Air force Units: ReZEL and Flag's are the mainstays of transforming suits in most units, though some use Zeta Plus units and Murasame's.

Spec Units: GM Quel, Upgraded Jegans, Overflags, GN-X and various units based on the suits aformentioned above. Some area's like the moon which is an unincorporated territory, with it's own economic rights (For those who have seen it, they're pretty much the Phezzan of the place, in adition to jupiter acting similarly as well), use their own MS, in addition to some of the more standard. Serpents are also being phased in as well by some heavier units.

Aside from that, it's mostly other UC (EFF and some earlier Zeon stuff) AD (Union and A-Laws mostly) CE (ORB and OMNI mostly) and AC (Leo's formerly for the most part as well as a few of it's successor units.

Mars Confederate:
Standard Grunts: Grimoire's are the most commonly used on the ground, generally considered Mars' first MS and has been upgraded though out the time, Leo's though older (In this universe they're kind of Frontier Zaku's no frills, basically meant for patrolling and little else) are also a common sight on Mars Soil. They also make extensive use of Geara Doga's and Gelgoog's, and are building Graze's. (Which in this universe are kind of how I see them visually a Leo on roids with flag inspiration, same designer here in this universe) The Doga, and Grimoires being the only MS of their design, the Gelgoog is an older EU model at this point still used widely by both. Eastern European bloc also deploys Tierren's. (Other blocs make some use of their own suits but Russia has recently been building their own as a rugged model to deal with anti EU uprisings in Siberia, cheap effective, and not really a blow to the EU's economy while their own local juristiction handles it)


Airforce/Transforming: Pretty similar to the above units, though they use the Zeta units more often than not as they're easily aquireable from Vision Aerospace an MS manufacture stationed on Phobos. (Well one station they used to be based on Luna-though were 'Bought out' more on that later)

Special ops: On ground, several specialty units of the Grimoire are mostly used, as well as Dom's being another widely used favorite being a captured EU design with the Driessen being a martian twist that's being phased in as time goes on. Artillery units of the Gelgoog are also employed as well due to their long standing effective nice despite being a good seven years old.

Aside from that they mostly make use of RC (Greco-mostly amerian dsigns), PD designs (mostly Graze's which they'll be devloping on their own) and UC stuff mostly later Zeon/Neo-Zeon. AC, mostly leo's and Cancer's.

Jupiter Fleet:

Mostly use Crossbone Vanguard MS (F91 Era) and Jupiter Empire MS. They also have a few other MS scattered, it depends on the division, they don't really imploy and army but that's their unique stuff.

Mercs:
Same as jupiter, pretty damn wide spread. Leo's, Grimoires, and older generations of GM's and Zaku's are popular, as are homegrown units usually based on old Construction MS, such as the Man Rodi in our timeline. Aside from that Merc's will buy whatever they can off of various corprations of Mars, Earth, and Jupiter sphere, or steal stuff, on top of that there's a pretty wide black market in the outer systems (Mars sphere and further) so basically if it's to be had, it can be had.

Lance's crew (NPC wise) have an affinity for Gelgoog's and GM Variant's as well as some Grimoire's, but Lance will take what he can salvage so the stock keeps shuffling. Xi-2322 uses mostly older MS as well though are deploying the Flint (the MP crossbone basically from Crossbone) as their own MS made in their own workshop, the reactors (and fuel) supplied by a deal with jupiter for use of their ports and safe guarding in the belt, and the metals mined from their own asteroid/neighboring ones in their control. It's considered the first Mobile Suit build and engineered by an astroid belt faction, in any meaningful number. Again though, they'll make do with what they can get their hands on as they become more self sufficient.



I admit, it's kind of a loose list, and I'll allow outliers if there's reasons given, there's obviously a fair bit of wartime (well in a way post war time) capitolism going on as corperations try pawning off MS on others. I also don't really want to go though and find a roll my self for each and every MS out there and make a new Universe backstory, because there's too much, so I'm going to be a little Lax on say, if you want to use a daughtress, and be from, Jupiter (example) fine go ahead. That said I do have plans involving MS from at least a few universes.

Actually while we're here, Daughtress' are gonna be used mostly by Merc factions as they're kind of a mishmash of other tech, low stress, about on par with older stuff for base variants.

- - - Updated - - -

Mind you I kinda made up this up as I just went (the general split of Universes/other universe faction's tech/designs to factions in particular I had lined out, I just spitballed particular models aside from Flag, Mursame and Grimoire since I had the most plans for them in enemy/potentially friendly squads)

Hope it helps but if there's anymore questions on it I'll be glad to give out more specific info as I finish kind of lining it out.

Okay sounds good, Also @Exia for hoverboards...do you mean on foot or for MS?

- - - Updated - - -

Oh something I've also forgot to mention, and is gonna be in that timeline I'm still kind of finishing up, AI's are a thing as well in this universe they're pretty rare though, but there are some suit based AI's mostly for helping pilots in them. Anyways that aformentioned time line and the Bio thread both should be up today. Timeline definitely will be.

AI's are comparable to the ones from Halo if anyone is familar with them (aside from Just cortana, there's quite a few, and have been some of my favorite parts of the books, like there, they each have their own personalities etc.)

Granted before everyone goes and gets an AI they're pretty rare like I said but it's something I think bares a little mentioning. Before people go 'WTF'. It's not the most gundamy thing but hell Sentiel was pretty much the story of an AI (ALICE main character Ryu Roots a s***)

@Exia I like the shining Gundam thing, but I think it's Transformation may be a bit much. IBO suits are fine as long as it isn't Vidar or Kimaris, because I'm dibsing both of those.

Aw, come on, the transformation's half the fun of the suit. It's a Gundam based of Kamen Rider Ryuki. And as for IBO suits, haven't thought much about it, but I have no interest in the Kimaris or the Vidar so you're good there.

Possibly both. Kinda wanna play a pro boarder turned MS pilot, either the need for more speed or maybe some injury forces him into retirement while he's just reaching the top.

Frankly, haven't thought much on character stuff, just MS stuff.

And what about CB-01 or LT-06? They cool or not?

I am trying to recall if it was a Gundam series or a different mecha series where they used skate/hover boards as a mode of transportation to cover ground quickly, so that is a neat idea. As I have no clue what the CB-01, LT-06, or Leopardon are (even after reading about them), I cannot offer any insight into if those would be useable.

My SgtMaj Johnson character is going to use a Tallgeese III since that fits his character, and if ZRC wants me to swap the beam cannon for the Dober Gun that is fine. Carl will use a slightly modified G-Saviour (presumably the worst Gundam ever), and another character will use a modified Gouf Custom. Question for the group: Do you think that the Gouf would be good for space use, or should a different suit be used? Are there any ideas for a space-only suit?

Yep, the windmill is even worse than the Mermaid Gundam. Using the G-Saviour and calling it the worst Gundam is more of a joke on the movie itself and general opinions about it.

G-Saviour had a movie?? I never saw it (actually I had it wiped from my memory soooo...)

DOM, the words have already left my mind and have been typed into the interweb never to be withdrawn. They are in the system forever nothing for us to do about it accept to realize the truth that is inevitable. The nether Gundam was horrible. Actually most of the Gundams in that show were pretty bad, but we all loved that show. It was the precursor to Gundam Build Fighters. Without Mobile fighter G we never would have had builds fighters. Even if we did have to suffer the sight of the Nether Gunam. That accursed windmill.......

Now I have an idea for the Nether Gundam to make an appearance in this RP...

The group is pinned down, trying to evacuate an area. Someone finds the Nether Gundam in storage and brings it out. Telling everyone to stand clear, the giant windmill activates, sending a crushing vortex upon the enemy. Realizing that this Gundam is too powerful to be handled by anyone the character packs it into a shuttle and launches it out into the cosmos to keep it out of human hands. They then have an afterthought of hoping that aliens do not find it.

Leopardon was the mecha used by Spider-Man to defeat Kaiju in the Japanese tokusastu Spider-Man show. It was the first giant robot to be used in toku which eventually was brought over to the Super Sentai world, which American's know as Power Rangers. AND! Marvel did indeed sign off on all of that. There was a deal done in the 80s between Marvel and whatever studio, Japan got rights to create a Spider-Man show and Marvel was going to adapt Bio-man as the first Sentai. Didn't go well for Marvel, went great for Japan. Bio-man failed and it wasn't until Saban got the rights to the first Power Rangers show that it was finally a success.

CB-01 and LT-06 are from the show Tokumei Sentai Go-Busters (great Sentai show btw), I felt like spicing things up other than looking for odd gundam verse suits.

December 14, 2016, 11:09 PM
It's roughly similar in size or just a bit smaller than normal MS. It was a major deal in Go-Busters, they had a hanger and official funding. There were more than a few times Red Buster took Ace out when it was still in the middle of maintenance. And a couple times it needed a quick field repair.

It's a bit longer than I wanted to do at first, but it should give a sense of how the world has flowed upto this point, allowing everyone to have some backround knowledge of the world which is always handy when playing a character from a certain world obviously. Like always everyone's allowed to fill in some blanks too especially since it was a big ass war and I'm sure at least a few of our characters were involved in it in some way.

Questions:

1. Is year 2205 also SA 0001? Or was the start of what would have been 2206 mark the first true usage of the Space Age calendar?

B. How safe is Mars surface? As in, are only section of the planet terraformed so humans can walk around outside without a space suit or is the entire planet more or less suitable for life just not as advanced? I'm assuming that while mostly desert, there are sections within cities that are more evolved. Oh, and I guess no radiation or acid storms?

4. I'd like to start off using CB-01 Ace, I'd like to backstory it as third party prototype attempt at going from Mobile Worker to Mobile Suit with Ace being the in between suit. And at a later point the same for LT-06 Tatagami Lioh, more or less an Ace MKII but only on paper as in a copy of Ace's plans were used to rework and create it. I'd considered them both advanced but relics by the RPs start but still able to keep up with most suits depending on the pilot. Advanced in the sense of their transformation sequences, different modes, and like a gen 1 AI program for pilot aid. Relics in the sense that the multiform function isn't as useful as say a single mode suit or most MS and that it's reliance on older technology for repairs is hindered by the fact that as time moves on parts get harder and harder to find for the important stuff. Armor can be remade, certain OS and gen 1 AI formatting require specific parts. And I'm really hoping that by the end I can use that Ryuki Shining with it's Dragon form.

Q: .....Honestly I can think of anything but everyone knows "Q" gets the last word in.

December 16, 2016, 9:25 AM
1. 2205 became SA001, basically january of that year (even though it was passed) is now just SA0001, for all intents and purposes 2205 AD isn't a thing.

B. The planet is completely habitable, about 30% of it is vegitated to a state like earth, other parts are desert like, and about 25% is ocean, mostly the southern regions, though there are an abundance of rivers and canals even peppering though the rocky desert areas.

4. Most of that's okay, I'll sleep on the shining a bit. Maybe make the Dragon slightly less dragon like, it's the only reservation I have about it, but I'll think about it either way.

Q: http://www.startrek.com/uploads/assets/db_articles/d1117d399c5e48261c050d81a079cefd70df29c8.jpg

I can always thrown in a deterrent about how multiform suits have drawbacks for pilot and increase it with each upgrade so that by the time, should Ryuki Shining be allowed, that that specific transformation sequence is particularly stressful on the pilot. Use it too often and it'll shorten my characters life since I plan to make him the kind of person who likes to push himself to his limits and try to surpass them.

I'm mostly worried about mechanical physics, pilots stress could be fine.

That said, there's always that sandrock thing and it just worked, granted it was one formed, but the giant snake (well dragon in this case) mech thing just works in that case. (Not mentioning cobra gundam from G).

I'll probably allow it, especially with limitations you suggest.

That said, and now this could just be the lack of sleep talking, but this has all got me thinking of a mix of that Earthquake Naga gundam, and Nobel Gundam to make a Lamia Gundam. I need to keep that on the back burner for something eventually.

These two places.

Also should be noted the following suits have been dibbsed:

Epyon

FA Thunderbolt (Mind you there are so many Full Armored versions of the RX-78 that if anyone wants one there's plenty of other options to choose from)

Tallgeese III

Kimaris

Atlas

I'll leave it upto the people who dibbsed those if they want more than one floating around or not, since these are all kind of halo suits (If it wasn't for Dom mentioning the Thunderbolt I probably would of had limited production ones...still might but mostly as a backround tidbit from the war with most destroyed if it doesn't ruin any of his stuff). Kimaris and Atlas are dibbsed by me though and Atlas for sure is gonna be a one of a kind since it's gonna be relevant to the plot of my Rival. I'd be willing to let kimaris go though probably. Aside from that pretty open game as long as suits are changed to fit the 'rules' of the universe.

I knew I was forgetting one, the G-Saviour.

That said the G2 and 3 are up for grabs but I'm somewhat tempted to take the G3 savior for rollerblades. Also I like the G-Savior you seem to underestimate people liking the design, there's a few people on the forums here. I just haven't really had anything to use it in. (TBH If imma use it imma save it for some sort of Turn A prequel RP or some shit)

Well GN particles don't exist so they'll just use the normal particles for the blaster and the gun (Functionally they'll pretty much work the same though, just a note to be made for in the RP). But aside from that they're allowed.

Also no need to dibs weapons, generally it's just free range on those. As for the suits, yeah if you want them, that said I was hoping the Mark II could be limited production as I was gonna have a squad maybe appear in those later on, but I can change it if you really want there to be only one/a handful/whatever. For the Zeta, just remember there's a ton of variants and all of those are still gonna be floating about, in varying numbers.

In that regard, I'm kind of making this like the UC RP's to a degree, where there's a bit of free range to a degree with variations on MS that have them generally have them, hell if you want you can have your own variant of the Zeta based on another, it's what I did back in the day in the aforementioned Universal century RPs. (For Example the MP version is a mainstay but you can have the down and out Gundam one and it be yours or one of the versions like Strike Zeta if you want)

But yeah TL;DR you can have the Mk. II and the Zeta if you want. (Unless those where just examples)

@GundamMonkey Just use MS paint, it's installed on most computers by default. Also sorry about spacing your suits.

- - - Updated - - -

Oh also another note on suits, if it was MP'd in the Universe it's from it'll generally be Mass produced here as well, or limited production, this applies to the Gundams from X most likely. Unless someone specifically wants one to be unique. (And even then just mod the shit out of it TBH) same goes with variants, that said unless someone has one of those generally not many if any will be appearing this is mostly just food for thought.

Ayleron
December 19, 2016, 3:00 AM
Haha I was using those as examples actually. You are free to continue with your plans for those. I am totally cool using the Gn-sword3 and the /g-blaster particle free, and figured as much.

Main dibs on suits are going to be genoace age-1 and Adelle parts plus some lighting from BF and the asteroth. Planning to start with the Shiden. Basically he will build and upgrade the suit from mass produced to custom ace. Might want to steal some legs or a torso off a mkii as part of the story if the situation presents itself.

Also I noticed beam weapons on mechs in the bio thread, are those not off limits and/or rare?

Yeah pretty much.

He's got no clue who's really paying him and who exactly he's doing jobs for. Just gets contacted by a voice that's scrambled and distorted sounding telling where and when his next job will be. Once it's done that's when money gets put into his account or told where parts and such are when he needs them. Either or works as payment.

Exia
December 19, 2016, 1:54 PM
Yeah, might be a good thing to have Lance carry a voice scrambler when he meets Izrail. He'll call bullshit.

Like, he's smart and all but due to his personality he can be dense about the world as a whole. He gets his job done and then has fun and tries to avoid the fighting to the best of his ability. One part due to his suit's rarity (rare suits equals rare parts which means they ain't cheap), one part it's not his job unless he needs to defend himself and one part the suit takes a lot out of him when he uses the animal or MS mode and he still hasn't pushed himself to the limit since he knows the longer he pilots the more it'll strain his body.

RP will need to start up before I can actually get into character and figure out where I'm gonna go with him. I am enjoying the name, that took forever to come up with. Izrail Gehenna. Izrail is the Persian spelling for their angel of death and Gehenna is a type of underworld. Izra is the preferred nickname, as Z'rai is gonna be short hand for "Za Red Z'rai" a hoverboarding nickname on account of how fast he'd go.

.

I haven't thought too much about it, but the PCs on that side are all going to be freeelance, at least to start, so the most he'd have is just some seniority. No real rank.

As for length of time, I'd say six months, a year tops. This is mostly being done, I admit because it'll make it easier on me if everyone at least started off relatively even. Not so much because of any rank stuff, but knowledge workings and so on, there's just gonna be things that people who have been there awhile or who are full crew members would know that I don't want spoiled really before hand, both pertaining to the ship and to things outside of the Highway Star and it's crew.

That said despite that, he'd still being familiar with the workings and such have a bit of a head start on who's who on the crew and such, and probably have some level of trust unlike most of the others. (Only other one lance would Trust a bit is Exia's character, and it'd be a bit different as they haven't worked directly together yet, Lance just knows he can get a job done without too many questions)

Zeon's RedComet
December 21, 2016, 4:13 AM
Yeah the Leo was made by the Earth Union, but like I said Mars used it as well (if not a tad more) as well as mercs getting ahold of them now. Same with the Zaku II to a lesser extent. They're kind of like the AK-47 and the Mosin Nagant (Example of what I mean http://i.imgur.com/LEbLMl6.jpg ) in MS form, they're cheap, they're reliable, they're everywhere, and if any set of mother fuckers wants another set of mother fuckers dead, they'll probably be around somewhere to some extent during the proceedings.

But yeah Leo is mostly a Mars suit and merc suit at this point since the leo was more or less just a rugged Zaku meant for ground combat and dealing with Martian Sand and rocks in the desert areas of he planet. (Zaku is more inclined for space in this even if there's ground versions)

- - - Updated - - -

Oh on beam sheilds, sure, the tech is more or less just beam sabers to be honest so it's not a stretch, just don't use them too much overheating may be an issue since they're relatively new, but unless you're just turtling behind one a whole fight it won't be an issue.

December 21, 2016, 9:20 AM
I was just verifying the Leo's origin since it is just a cheaper version of the Tallgeese, so thank you for the clarification.

Also, I am going to guess that you have been watching the show called "Mars" on National Geographic since this RP's origin seems to have much in common with it. And the current state of the Earth Union has a lot in common with the Armored Core series where corporations rule in place of an actual government.

Hey Twitch, nice bios. What do you think about the idea of Scalen and Carl Hepburn having served in the same misfit team in the Mars military?

That is fine, Scaven's unit is the last one that Carl was a part of before his discharge.

Bio's look good and such, there's more than I thought there'd be lol, but it's not a bad thing.

One question though for Twitch, Tumbili he's gonna be a rival or sorts right? I assume he is since there was no mention of the Highway star and such but just wondering on that. Partially because HS's crew comlpiment for pilots is already a bit big right now, I still have a bio to post my self here soon for them, maybe two for HS' crew, people are running allot more HS characters than I thought. (I mean I knew everyone would have one but figured most secondaries would belong to other factions, not saying it's a bad thing I like the enthusiasm and seeming dedication to the main ship before the RP has even started lol, it's a good thing, it's just suprised me is all)

Anyways I got a new keyboard and I'm back home so I should have that bio up tonight (as well as one for Elegia's leader probably besides that the other bios I have can wait until those characters appear as I generally do with my Rivals and so on) assuming that FFXV doesn't take all of my time. And it probably will.

I did a bit more editing on Col. Marcov. I thought about it and He would have no idea what Bob is going by today. Bob gave himself the name Bob Dodge so the Col. would never have known that. This will help with the whole "who the hell is spreading the stories of the lost ship" and also the Col. could be told about Bob and not realize it is the same person until he sees him. It just helps with the time frame in which things happened with them.

FFXV has been like crack to me, and whatever time that isn't spent on it is spend shoveling my way out of the stupid amount of snow we've been getting.

For plot, I mean when convenient or needed. He is the sort of character that if he accepts a job he will do it; once completed he will move on if there is no reason to stick around that area. So if he accepts being hired on for X amount of time to do Y tasks, then that is what he will do. If he is not actively hired by Lance I am sure that he will be working some jobs that coincide with the Highway Star.

That said when I say next year I mean like the second, I do apologize for my silence but my holidary weekend was allot more busy than I suspected since I was house sitting instead of just dog sitting like I planned, my cat and my friends dog had other plans though. (Namely trying to murder each other, which is kinda funny because they used to be fine though my cat was a kitten then)

@Twitch

So if I'm understanding, he'd basically be one of those types that gets hired as the 'I know a guy who could help' type thing when we need extra hands? Typically that falls to the DM, and I had plans along that line, but I can add him in to the retinue of contacts for that sort of work, so to speak, for when there's bigger jobs I just want to make sure that you're fine with him potentially just being off to the side for wide swaths of time. Because as it stands he won't get much action aside from his initial hiring (it sounds like he'll be hired fresh be on awhile and then go his own way) until half way ish though. Alternatively though he can also about the same time also be hired to conduct some solo scout work and such.

Basically if you're okay with all of that (and from what I've read it sounds more or less like your plan anyways) then he'll work, if not we can work something out probably. As for jobs and other people hiring him I don't know how well that'll work, I can probably spin a yarn but there might be periods of inactivity, which is, as said before my main concern and me making sure you're fine with those, I can probably spin a few side yarns easily but they may be few and far between.

Added a bio to the first post in the bio thread for the Second in command of the Highway Star, going to make a Bio for the leader of Elegia as well, since there's a character on their side as well.

- - - Updated - - -

Also tommorow we'll be starting like planned, the general rundown for the first bit is going to be the recruitment of the new commers to Lance's crew, and Exia's character who will be going to the same interview ish things just he's not really a new commer in a strict sense though he doesn't know he's been working for lance so he kinda is.

After my first post which will kind of be an introduction and get Lance to the point where he'll be at the bar where the recruitment will be taking, on Elegia's astroid XI-2322.

Any questions comments or concerns? I'll have a bit more info in the morning, I'm gonna be reviewing bio's and my own personal notes to see how it'll work but feel free to ask away now too. (I'll try to get to it I'm kind of on the computer kinda not) also I apologize for the sloppyness it's been awhile since I've ran an RP so there may be small growing pains, but hell can't be worse than my first one where I didn't know what I was doing and it just kind of worked.

Also now would be a good time to say how you want your characters intro'd if that doesn't work that well for them, or they're gonna be intro'd later.

The only question I have with my guy. This "interview" would it start as a buyer/seller for Bobs ship? Or did Bob already sell it and is looking for work. I really like the seller bit. I could have fun with that, and it could lead into a "so now what are you going to do?" Type thing.

Is he selling it now?

Because if so it can start with him selling it to Elegia or even Lance and it going into Lance using the oprotunity to try and hire him.

Also interview is, for the most part used loosely it's gonna be along the lines of hey who want;s work from a pool of people he's had Sierra the leader of Elegia scrounge up to interview, but bob and others don't need to nesesarirly be from that, I'm flexible on it. (Hence why I'm asking now to see what other people think)

We'll go Elegia then, they're more in the market with ships, and given their blooming relationship with Jupiter, them acquiring it could lead to Shenanigans. If it is the same ship from his past, if not it can still lead to shenanigans down the line in another way. A more roundabout way but still Shenanigans.

But yeah we can work in him meeting with Sierra Hargrave the leader of Elegia either right off the bat or after the recruitment stuff and then Lance being there will offer him a job.

Would be optimal if his suit was with him, because he won't have one until we get back to mars...and then get to where it's stashed.

And shit's gonna happen so I'd make sure he brought it unless you just kinda wanna be there lol.

- - - Updated - - -

To give a bit more of a rundown, the meeting and hiring will be taking place in a nightclub, yeah real offical but it's the best there is for it, it's also where Sierra Hargrave conducts a good deal of her business, to give a feel about how it'll be, minus a bit less hostility but the general feel of at least the first post and how stuff is operated here, it's a bit like Afterlife in Mass Effect 2, Sierra being the Aria of the place. For those who haven't played Mass Effect here's a vid https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=WFpJnmtZvEg

Actually as a whole Xi-2322 is like a less hostile, less multitudes of murder in the street Omega.

Alright, I'll bring my suit with me. Can't make any promises someone won't get stabbed though. Everything he carries is coated in poison and he's built up more than enough of a resistance to all of them in his arsenal. Unless I mention it, they're coated in non lethal poisons for the most part. His bullets are coated in poison too, but if he has to use his gun then death is pretty much a guarantee so those bullets are coated in fast acting poison that paralyze every muscle within a few minutes. That way I can be a shit shot but still end up killing a guy even if I wing 'em.

Kinda gonna play him part Toyohisa (from Drifters anime), part Hood version of Arrow (from the Arrow TV show), and then fill in the blanks from myself.

Just a few more questions for you about how I can bring in Bob.
1: He is not in the group in the VIP lounge so is there a rep he might bump into. He is selling his ship but is a bit lost on how. It is more of a "Hay what you doing buddy? want to buy a ship??" type thing.
2: I was going to have him dock and "find" the lounge and start trying to sell the ship, and spread rumors and generally just be "Him"
is that cool?

Zeon's RedComet
January 3, 2017, 2:01 PM
1. We can have him run into a representitive at the docks if you'd like. I should of thought of something like that lol. The rep can then get in touch with Sierra after seeing the ship.

2. Or we can do that he just wanders in and starts trying to pawn it off on the other PC's because he happens to hear about it. Either or.

gundammonkey
January 3, 2017, 2:04 PM
I like #1. He can dock the ship and he would probably put a big silly looking hand painted "For Sale" sign on before walking around. So a Representative walking the docks would see that and that would make a good intro.

Think of a cross between the Millennium Falcon and Slave 1. Some of the multicolor is paint but a good bit is because the parts came from different parts of the ship.

On a side note. In the dock he could be talking to people inside the ship with a com unit. Just walking buy someone would not know that he was in fact talking to no one. Kind of like walking down the street with your blue tooth on, you look crazy but you are talking to someone. So it might not be to "out of the ordinary"

Yeah, same suit he wore the day he retired. But it fairness it's been a few years since then so there's bound to have been some imitators along the way. He's got a couple spares. Really only difference from when he wore it as a race suit and how he wears it now is the amount of weapons on it. Reduces G forces, fireproof, and resistant to other knives and bullets. More so that if a racer falls the suit is tougher to tear or if something falls loose and hits a rider it's not gonna piece thru the suit. If someone is proficient with knives they could probably piece thru if they survive Izrail's counterattack, but more often than not a bullet with most definitely pass thru the suit.

Haven't actually thought of what the suit would be made out of. I assume just future type materials. Neo-kevlar or whatever.

O" trust me I have given plenty of thought about the two of them. Just how gullible is Carl? Bob likes to twist words and what ever someone says. like when he was asked "How much" for his ship. I just wanted to see how you played him first to see just how much of an idiot or goof up he was. If he asked Bob for directions that would have been fun. I was gonna tell him stuff like "Your on the wrong astroid! You need to go back out and take a left it is the 4th astoroid on the left, but you have to be careful they tend to move out here so it might be the 5th or 6th by now. either way go out and broadcast the secret signal ...." Stuff like that. Just to see if he would do it.

Think of Caboose from RvB...

No problem, a bit more on Gundanium, it's as the name Gundianium alloy, the full name that is, sugests is an alloy, so basically this is just a perfected mixture, and manufacturing process. This hunk is basically a bit of a sample, and a good chunk for Mars to work with while they get the raw materials ready, easily enough for a few MS. Depending on the application.

Also in addition to the OOC tidbit directed at you Twitch (hope that's all cool, and doesn't hamper anything) do you want Carolyn to go with the highway star? As a Liason as mentioned with the whole Elegia characters thing?

It is all good, we understand that "real life" takes priority. The only "inconsistencies" that I see is that Tumbili has not provided his name (so no one except Katarina and Lance know it), and Carl does not really trust him. Heck, he just met the guy.

CB-01 isn't exactly all that fast. At it's top speed in it's car form it only hits like 205 mph. As a boarder it wouldn't be a stretch to say he's tried to push past the 100 mph mark more than once, but there's limits a hover-board can achieve. Probably has hit at least 75 mph on his board with right conditions, you know downhill with wind at his back.

Fixed it, also Monkey you're gonna have to fix it too, since it was a typo. If something like that happens it's best to go with either the character that should be there or to just wait for confirmation, that said I'd never use someone elses character, so it's best just to voice your confusion in the discussion (It's what it's here for) instead of just powering though and 'going with it'.

- - - Updated - - -


Are we ready to move the scene to Dock 23, or is Bob going to finish up his scene?

For the transfer? Probably going to off screen it, or do it now. Lance doesn't need to be there for bob to sell his ship as Sierra can just tell him about the job opportunity if bob asks about it after the sale.

If it's for your characters going to the ship, that can happen whenever you put them as getting to the ship. More than one scene can happen and I can monitor them when I happen not to have a character there after all, Katarina is heading that way anyways for any needs that need to be held up by me there and such.

- - - Updated - - -

On the subject of the transfer, we're not actually gonna show the hangar it's at we're just gonna basically have Carolyn and Lance show up with it, as it'll work as a good segue into everyone showing up, or they can show up before, Player's prerogative on that, and the launch. Bob can catch them there and talk to Lance about the job after he sells the ship and before they leave, and hopefully if it goes smoothly we'll be onto Chapter 1 and arrival at mars. Also just have Carl get there in time somehow, make whatever scene you want (short of killing everyone by unleashing the airlock to the Docking ba) but it'd be best if he got there (read: the DM wills it because the DM doesn't want to monitor him catching up on top of everything else as Mars is gonna be 0-100 type of thing opening with an attack on them)

I was gonna have an attack happen on the asteroid, but it seems like a bit much and I've gone a bit slow on this, my apologies, again, but yeah Winter's been a pain in my ass lol. Works better will make the next Chapter seem a bit more crazy I hope. (though the battle won't happen first thing it'll happen so there's bound to be time for some character moments if people want)

Nova shouldn't feel to bad she has seniority not full command, that'll mostly fall to Lance and Katarina at least.

She can take solace in that.

Also I think I touched on it, but for those wondering, if any are (and if I didn't mention it), the Highway Star also has a small staple complement of MS that are full members of the crew (not just hired mercs but people who have been there from the get go. A few people picked up along the way too there'll be an oprotunity for this lot to join full or stay mercs some point later) they mostly use Grimoire's adapted for space an Jegan's. That said those squads (often while deployed with the mercs) are gonna usually be doing objectives on the field, while the focus stays on the mercs and such, since well, they're the main characters. I may have an NPC commander that pops up off and on.

Mercs are usually hired before big jobs though for extra help. Or those who stay for longer Periods like Nova has. (The few mercs that have became full members on the fulltime crew usually come from this lot)

That said she thinks she has it bad now wait until Bob gets there lol.
