Re: OOC ~ 05/18/15
if you want to change character concepts, now's the time to do it.  Call it a free mulligan.

if you like your character, you may keep it, though you'll have to start off with a new mech..

Happy with Akarian, but that mulligan might make sense depending on what is left. Not a lot of point in having hundreds of XP pushed out into unit leadership spec, if its not going to be used.

I'm going to take advantage of the mulligan. Where do you want to proposed changes?

Re: OOC ~ 05/18/15
I am intrigued by the new direction and still present. Going to hold off on a final decision regarding keeping Alaric vs. coming up with a different person for the moment, but put me down for staying on board. :)

My husband and I have a guest coming in from out of state tomorrow, so I'll be a little less active on RPoL until next Wednesday, but I will keep an eye out for shiny, red text on my dash.

Give me a name, for roleplaying.

You can make a character later, but you have nothing but cash to start.

equipment is going to be roleplayed through, so you need to roleplay through Regina, to get your mech.

With the quick end to things Lina would stay with family.

For the time being use Luc since he is the most likely one to have followed Reggie all the way.

Re: OOC ~ 05/18/15
done.

you'll get Svend's xp/cb bonus, but be allowed to pick out a new archetype to work with.

dont worry about the mech selection yet, you'll pick up a ride through the roleplaying.

Re: OOC ~ 05/18/15
I've been enjoying the campaign so I'll stick around because the premise for this campaign sounds quite intriguing.

Having read your epilogue Kitten, can I pretend the interim mulligan never happened and I was able to escape (barely) off-world with my old Jenner?  (If not the Jenner was worth a fair bit and I plan to roll up a new character regardless).  David took one of the Tauren first offers so it's plausible he made it off-world and headed in the general direction of Solaris 7.

New name for my guy?  Let's go with... Sean Reynolds, code name 'Firefly'

I might be slightly shameless...

Re: OOC ~ 05/18/15
No one gets to keep their mech.

You all get handed cash, and the opportunity to pick up a new one, as will be outlined in the roleplaying... (shortly)

Are we keeping the recently reworked characters or do we pick new templates?

Re: OOC ~ 05/18/15
you may keep the reworked character, if you want, or take a mulligan and make a new one.

Mechs all go away though and are replaced by money to buy a new mech.... to modify as noted.

Will open up the rollcalll section for players to post character sheets, when i'm ready to receive them.... please dont spam my PM till i'm ready to work on new characters.

Re: OOC ~ 05/18/15
After 24 hours, we've had a good turn out on the attention check.

So far...

Unconfirmed character/player list
Piotr      8 missions   +16xp / +160k cb / and up to + 8 fp start up bonus
Damien     3 missions   + 6xp / + 60k cb / and up to + 3 fp start up bonus
Joaquin    8 missions   +16xp / +160k cb / and up to + 8 fp start up bonus



Confirmed list +6xp /+60k cb/ NO FP FOR ANY ARCHETYPE.

Regina Arlington ~ +38xp / +380k cb (may purchase +1 rank for 100k cb)
Akarian          ~ +22xp / +220k cb
Jarold Harven    ~ + 8xp / + 80k cb
Lucius McMurphy  ~ +38xp / +380k cb
Mikael Blomquist ~ +26xp / +260k cb
Mortimer Grissom ~ +12xp / +120k cb
Sean Reynolds    ~ +35xp / +350k cb (may purchase +1 rank for 100k cb)
Teri             ~ +16xp / +160k cb

Piotr, has indicated, that he cant make the campaign cause of free time issue, hate to see him go but he has an open invitation to return if his schedule frees up

Damien i believe dropped out, and sadly to my knowledge has not checked in.

Joaquin had some medical issues, not sure if that's going to keep him offline or not.

Gave Olaf and Mattias a bump, to see if they're still interested.

We're looking at a count of about 8 players.

Unit organization will be a little different.

Regina will be a Liason Officer and show up where she is most useful.

You are 'one' unit, I'm good with calling you the Freelancers, unless you want to come up with a new name.

Lucius and Akarian are going to be the offical 'lance commanders' and lead missions, having a spare 'officier' around for over sized missions might be good, so if youre interested in making a Leadership type, there is room for it.

Everyone else will be mech warriors, and get assigned as needed from missions.  (ie, everyone is the equivelent of the old freelancers).

Mechwarriorrs with conventional units, when appropriate will have the option to take them along for missions.  (ie, they're on planet and available for use).  List them with the character as needed.

Roll call thread up, if youre not changing your character that's fine, you still need to post mech selection and modifications.

Re: OOC ~ 05/18/15
Yeah pretty sure Damien dropped, I was talking to him, but haven't heard back in ages.

Joaquin is still interested in things, though just had some unfortunate life events, so maybe off for a bit again. (Not including the surgery recovery aspects.)

Did Akarian actually win a Rank Auction?

I thought only Regina and David had won Rank auctions...

Delta, and Pax won a few but arent currently listed in the reboot.

(Rank from Leadership and Noble dont count)

I unfortunately have to bow out due to time constraints.  It's been great gaming with all of you and if my schedule ever opens up, I'll definitely sign back up.  Cheers!

Re: OOC ~ 05/18/15
Akarian had won 1 or 2 previously, back when he was with the Lancers.

Than they got wiped with the last round of things.

Honestly it probably doesn't matter since I have leader/noble anyways.

It makes a huge difference actually, since this is in addition to the ranks you can get with leadership and nobility.

The auction thread is intact, I cant find your winning bid.

If you can, you can have the rank up bonus.

It's the very last post actually.

7 ~ 265,000 cb ~ Akarian ~ +1 Rank

Dare I ask since I'm now considering slight mulligans/new mechs, are LAMs available?

Re: OOC ~ 05/18/15
I gave up on bidding for rank a long time agodue to the phenominal sink of cash it became to never win. :P

Hence why I just started buying it outright cause either it was more efficient, or when th auctions rolled around there never were ones for rank 3/4 only 1 or 2 or so that you could give rank to 1 or 2. :P


Hmm...command again meaning no energy weapon spec unless I go Bug Warior or LAM pilot to have a good leadership/rank to give to my underlings.  Will contemplate.
