Well you can talk to us here in the ooc.

I'm in charge of the Ironswords.  Pax is in charge of the Lancers and Penny is in charge of the Pussycats.

Re: OOC - 12/16
well...having read the description of the pussycats, and the name in general...ill be with either the lancers or the swords...this feels rather appropriate somehow.

Don't let the name fool you.  That said she does prefer the women over the men if she has a choice.  Unless the man is camera friendly.

Penny can have an eye for the shy guy when it suits her.

That said, the Brigade is pretty happy with it's unit of 3~4 at the moment, need to confirm Mattias' status to confirm.  If he's on prolonged hiatus, we'll probably have to scamper around and find one more, but i'm not overly concerned.

Re: OOC - 12/16
Just an obvious observation, the personal tech, only helps with Repair rolls and mech maintenance, they wont help with scout checks, qualifying for Advance electronics or stuff that the mechwarrior is responsible for in the cockpit.

Re: OOC - 12/16
Some questions on mech modification costs.

1. Is equipment install costs still the same? E.G Base cost x (mech weight/100)
2. Removing equipment now costs the repair modifier difference? E.G Base cost x Repair mod - Base cost
3. How is repair modifier calculated?

Thanks!

Re: OOC - 12/16
In reply to Akarian Euclid (msg # 43):

1.  Yes.  {Base cost x (Mech weight/100)}

2.  Yes.  {Base cost x (Mech weight/100)}

3.  per message 1 ~ link to a message in another game
    Cost for parts. = (Cost of New Equipment / Equipment Crticial) x (Repair modifier)

    Equipment must have an undamaged critical to be repaired, so equipment with only one critical can not be repaired.

    You still need to make a Tech Roll to repair the damaged equipment.  (Repair tn adjusted by equipment (+1, +2 for advance/conjecture tech) being worked on, modified by (Character mental + Character X-Tech - 2), modified by NPC Tech.

    Use campaign PDF, page 16, for base rolls.


Very Very rarely do we need to look at repair rules, most stuff is one crit equipment going boom.  Engines, Gyros are notable exceptions, as will be large ticket multi crit equipment like PPCs and Large Lasers.

Unit Commanders: Now that we've expanded the unit sizes I am Available to lead your second lance! Quentin is a Rank 2 Officer with Noble and Leadership 2, Missile Spec 1 with a 3050 Firefly (AMS CASE and BTC already installed) which can be set up for LRM or Streak (depending on unit needs) when I make my availability rolls.  Depending on how many availability rolls I have left over (and if they will be allowed in the coming mission) I may also come with a Ferret or two...

Re: OOC - 12/16
Right too many private pokes, i'm ignoring private message, ask questions here where someone else has a chance to answer them, or expect no answers from me for the rest of the year.  Better be skippy important and only i can answer it to get my attention, only peeps i'll answer are Lucius and Pax, since they're unit commanders.

Quentin is an alt and may not be permanently recruited into a unit.

(Thumps Quentin)

That's like the fourth time i've had to tell you that.

Ahhhhh.  OK.

Had some time to look at it rather than glance now that Pax shut down his mech.  And I only have to post for one character now.
