Solaris is a planet equivalent to the Roman Colosseum

Alaric Drusus:
I am really at a loss for what's going on here. Ending the mission/campaign 'early,' I get, but nothing else makes sense. What is Solaris? What kind of changes are we talking about?

I don't think any decisions have been made to what we will be doing.

Re: OOC ~ 05/18/15
Mechanically there will be no changes but some additional XP/C-Bills perhaps.

The others have given you a good idea about Solaris I thin between the link Akarian gave you and Svend's short but sweet comparison.  Ultimately what it is comes down to where the Merc Org that we all fight under gets the next contract...which is decided by what Kitten mainly and BM's think is a good angle to take moving forward.

Re: OOC ~ 05/18/15
I'm undetermined at this point, i'm allowing players to pick their paths to play out.  I'm going to go with the individual decisions at this point, though unit commanders may make an effort to keep the unit together.

Obviously the longer you stay on planet the better the pay out is going to be, but you have to
expect an element of risk for that pay out as well, which will be decided by a few dice rolls.

Gunnery rolls to see how much damage you dish out in an encounter, pilot (initiative) rolls to see how little damage you take.

Like there ever was a question of if Lina was going to boost off immediately :P

Luc might or might not linger.  Depends a bit on Regina.

Adam...

Well we won't go there ;)

Regina wont really care, and would follow Luc's lead.

She doesnt like the Taurens, but she thinks the Omni concept is as a den of Heathens that work against Blake's will, so it's the choice of lesser evils for her.

Will slowly update the roleplaying thread every 48 hours.

Inactivity pretty much equates to having the character do whatever i consider easiest for me to resolve things.

 He does not like fleeing the battle but he goes where his unit goes, still he will not like the reputation he is building up, even if it isnt his fault.

Re: OOC ~ 05/18/15
Well Mikael you are part of the Ironswords and if you stick with them they are staying on planet and not boosting.  Same with Teri.

You don't have to post like Kitten said but if you're sticking with the Swords even a short post in the IC thread saying they are staying with Lina will help.  Both for Kitten and for Lina in any RP she does.

I've been co-opted by my business partners for the foreseeable future.  If you think you see me doing things I swear it's not really me...

Re: OOC ~ 05/18/15
I dunno, one possible outcome was to have the planet captured, and the freelancers out of work, and the bulls offer you a contract, at which point it's a campaign to conquer the periphery.

Re: OOC ~ 05/18/15
Would you still allow two characters?  One for your Tauren campaign, the other for Solaris.

There is only going to be one campaign, i'm following player action to determine what the campaign direction is going to be.

Re: OOC ~ 05/18/15
Fair enough.  I'll go with the crowd when the crowd figures out where it's going.

David has indicated his destination so I may have to make a new character if the new campaign isn't Solaris.

Re: OOC ~ 05/18/15
His destination is anywhere off Omni, which is fine and a vague destination half way across the inner sphere which is really really far away, and only a tentative plan, so... you shouldnt need a new character, unless you want one.

Re: OOC ~ 05/18/15
No.  not quite.

The bad news, you already know it.  Critical burn out and a surge of real life activity detracting my attention from the campaign.  I'm still working through the start of my son starting school and arranging my activities around him.

The good news, the time down has given me time to mull over where to take the game.  It will notably deviate from what you might expect a 'normal' battletech game to go.  This is bad, if you just want to play standard table top battletech, but this might also be good if you like experimenting with new things and trying your hand at non standard battles.

If you've been in this campaign this long, you know something about the missions i put out.  The objectives arent always obvious, and the difficulty can be surprisingly hard to gauge.  So, when i say were going to get into even stranger rules and mission objectives, that should mean something.

I'm putting down the wrap up story line, and starting a new one... hopefully all tonight.

If i can, i would like to get it to the point where i can get a roll call, to see who's actually left, and interested in played.
