Re: OOC
Don't look at me, I've got nanites on duh brahne!

Not to mention I'm being tortured in a manner that the Geneva Conventions probably explicitly prohibit - Army Food! The only thing worse is Hospital Food. Oh wait, I'm under medical supervision and might be eating Army Hospital Food right now! Auugh!

Re: OOC
I wish Oleg was a prick...SGT No-leg is just too easy of a nickname.

And actually garrison food is really good. I came into the army at 130, left AIT at 163, That was 4 months of eat 3 full meals a day and pretty much working out constantly.

Re: OOC
Remember earlier in the game, Reg Center?, they where asking if any of you could cook and no one held up their hand?

It mattered for times like these. lol

Re: OOC
On the plus side once out of boot they should have decent cooks and a enlisted hangout with food on or near our training base. Come on IRL how many bases do not have places to serve the troops nearby?

Re: OOC
If by serve troops you mean throughly rip them off? Then yeah tons.

Right outside of base tends to be the seedy underbelly of the world, you drive down the road and it's Sew shop, pawn shop, strip club, strip club pawn shop, MC Donalds, barbershop ect...

Re: OOC
Army brat I know that. Travel overseas you see alot of color some of which might corrupt ones little mind. The one good thing I can say as being openly gay and on base I always felt safe and taken care of and had a good education K-8th there no one was soft due to my disabilities they pushed me.

Fortunately we have a stable home and I live in there, the army folks even helped fix it up on a weekend for me with ramps and the whole deal from the engineers on their own time.

But its a good life I would serve but well can't so am kind of playing out the role here.

Re: OOC
Its always interesting seeing the mix of backgrounds of the real players. Earlier injuries still need some specialized care and now being 40 my liklihood of serving, sort of Canada going to a total war footing, is.. well...done.

The MI base Camp Currie is located in the Americain Dessert of Utah. There is no immediate civilian habitation. Maybe 10-20 miles/km away probably a place.

The Camp itself shuffles alot so they have alot of open space for the possible base locations. Always on one edge is the permament HQ buildings.

Re: OOC
In the book they used the jump jets in the suits to travel in case of emergency...any of that happening here?

And how does one gain in the strength attribute.

Re: OOC
But we've been disparaging the food since before we arrived (Remember... The Pudding!), so we cannot suddenly claim the Mobile Infantry is serving gourmet food.

Or maybe they only serve it to those who have passed Boot.

And as far as putting up my hand for cooking, I would have tried if I had any skill in it. Heck I don't even remember seeing it listed among the available skills.

Jump jet use for hops is valid. Use of the thrusters for jumping is covered by the Power Armour skill. Like gun combat it covers both using and fixing them.

As for attribute training... hmmm... its possible but harder.

If you would rather up strength instead of fitness from Basic Training Im okay with that.

Re: OOC
IMO opinion Str and endurance should get a boost, the following is taken from Wikipedia.
"The United States Army Physical Fitness Test (APFT) is designed to test the muscular strength, endurance, and cardiovascular respiratory fitness of soldiers in the Army. "

So the focus would be strength and over all fitness.

What with smokings, ruck marches, obstacle courses, and the like, I think it's more than justified.

This was me Pre Army: http://a4.ec-images.myspacecdn...f917d7c21570e7/l.jpg

And this was nine weeks of basic later: http://a3.ec-images.myspacecdn...a926801c7df029/l.jpg

Re: OOC
I agree usually boot is tough one would like increase endurance and strength so why not +1 to each. Its not like IQ you can train the body to be better.

Re: OOC
Now you've all see it, right? Brygun said we get +1 strength and +1 endurance. Twice. So that's +2 and +2, right? We've even got it written down in black and white.

Re: OOC
Or all at once.

Hmmm..

Have you guys realized that the roof over your heads was partially built by earlier cadets?

How good of a job did they do?

Re: OOC
They did an excellent job. Otherwise they would have all washed out and some other squad would have been put on the same duty.

Feel free to keep asking, but it's an endless loop. Sooner or later a squad has to get it right before we can move in and use the Hut.

Re: OOC
The real pertinent question is, how much time do the supervisors take to rig crap to hurt people to 'train cadets to handle emergent situations'.

Sometimes crap is worse than others... like some stupid not putting his helmet on before live fire training...
