It depends...?

Look at the IS DS/HS notes,they should say.  There were special rules for their use.

Just added Michel Dubois of the Capellan March to the campaign.

He's still looking over game rules, and deliberating over a mech.

Re: OOC - 12/16
Thanks guys. It will probably be tomorrow evening before I can finish reading up. Out with a group of friends messing around a bit before seeing the hobbit.

Two quick questions, are the perks bought in ranks like the skills and if you buy 1 promotion at creation do you also get the 25xp bonus??

You really do need to install that Endo ami...


Cash flow problems and not having a reason to save the weight have prevented me from moving on that install.  With 2 x Streak LRR 6s on the table, the time may be now.

You're allowed a total selection of three options.  All characters have Edge, as a fourth option to develop.  The options pretty much define a lot of your character.  You can fit a lot of roleplaying in the selection of three options and the manipulation of the three general ability stats.

If you take Leadership or Noble, you are allowed to buy a level of rank, but it will cost you 100,000cb to do so, you do gain 25xp from the promotion.  It will also take up one of your three options to do so.

Most players select a weapon option of some sort to develop, Tactics is also popular.  Leadership and Noble are good if you plan on being able to lead a unit (though it should be noted that most of the command positions are filled), X-Tech and Tinker are good if youre going EW or Scout.

Re: OOC - 12/16
I'm guessing Unit Overhead picks and Individual Overhead picks are locked in for an entire contract?

Also...

Welcome to the game Michel, it's good to have new blood with new ideas.

Usually yes, the upcoming Omni Contract, is expected to last MUCH longer than the usual three or four missions.  I will call for an 'interlude' somewhere along the way and treat is as a bookkeeping phase for getting paid and rolling availability and what not.  You'll get a chance to change stuff then.

Just Added Greyson Strauss, a Valkyrie Pilot.

The player admits to being a little green with the game system, from lack of opponents, but is interested in playing.

Quick question:  does the bonus from BAES stack with the bonus from BTC?

 Thanks for clarifying that for me, makes my decision a lot easier... Yay Double Heat sinks!

Re: OOC - 12/16
Remember when i do bookkeeping i only look at the Repair Bay.

If it's not there, it's hearsay.

I wont start working with that information till after contracts and auctions are done.

Contracts arent done till missions wrap up and auctions wont start till after mission summaries are done for the Lancers/Brigade.

Moved, and personal wifi hot spotting with one bar of 4G... :D

Are we allowed to roll for the same item multiple times? I forget, and when I looked back through reference thread I didn't see anything about it specifically. Thought before it was disallowed though.

Succeed or fail, you may not roll for the same item more than once.

Re: OOC - 12/16
Added a summary of how a mission turn is resolved to help the newer players get a feel of what to expect when a mission is active, you're expected to check in once a day or every other day at the slowest.

If you're going to be unable to keep the schedule for some reason, you need to notify the Unit Commander, and Battlemaster, and appoint someone to care for your character when you are unable to.

While it may sound harsh, it's required to finish battletech missions in a timely manner.

Re: OOC - 12/16
I have on paper, Joaquin is staying with the Light Lancers, and Pax has accepted.

Hassan and Michel are still looking for homes, and eventually Greyson will too.

You have plenty of cash, if youre planning to be in the Valkyrie for a while i suggest making it an Heirloom.

Hassan is welcome back in the Ironswords since that is where he was before the shift last mission.
