If you fail the roll, it's two rolls each leg, one for normal critical damage, one for decompression.

Off to bed, play nice.

Keep in mind some merc commanders may not be around when you poke for them.

Kurt is on vacation on and off, and Pax has a late work schedule that makes him a little had to find.

Obviously Lucius and Ana are about.

Mission/Contract concludes at the end of mission nine.

Mission ten will be a fluff tourney, noted here...
link to a message in this game

There are rewards if the merc can win three out of three of his fights against Omni.

There is also a reward for the merc unit with the most 'wins'.

Freelancers join merc units for the sake of the tourney.  Will do so after giving mercs and freelancers to make permanent additions to their units.

(looks at the Valkyries)

Well... There are three valkyries, it would be nice if they could scrape up a fourth, but that's only going to happen if someone makes an alt.

Will open the opportunity to make alts at the moment as well.  Discuss it here if youre interested, i dont want any more junk in my private messages than is absolutely necessary.

Re: OOC ~ Started 08/14
As an aside...

OLAF!  I choose YOU!

McMurphy's Ironswords has been looking for the right sort of pilot to bolster their ranks with a good mix of skill, technique and chutzpah.  We want you to become one of our Swords and fight alongside: Hassan al-Nazir the devoted servant of Allah and driver of a Jenner, Jennifer Cross wiz-bang guru of all things Electronic Warfare and driver of a Raven, and Lucius McMurphy the Commander of the Ironswords who otherwise is known for hitting things hard until they break...driver of a X-3a Power Loader.*

If you are READY! for this challenge and the prestige that comes with joining McMurphy's Ironswords you can ACCEPT the invitation by visiting the adjunct storage locket formerly used for holding standard issue TP for the University but now the HQ of the Ironswords when present on Eden.

Sincerely,
Burner

P.S. Part of joining the Ironswords is buying into the specially negotiated with ComStar for acceptably standard rates FUBAR FUND.  The FU Fund will not only help cover catastrophic explosive rearrangement of your multi-million c-bill family heirloom but also defray armour, internal structure, ammo and even limited gear and one-off run products that can be found for decent honest living wage prices**

*Upon occasion, depending on if Luc has bribed her with crayons and a ham and peanut butter sandwich you will also fight alongside Regina Arlington the most devoted zealot of Blake and driver of a Valkyrie.

**Subject to Black Market availability and the whims of the Kitten Goddess when given milk in between contracts.

Sorry was writing up my advert to convince Olaf to join the Ironswords, but I do believe Mattias is correct.

In reply to Kitten (msg # 26):

I was actually going to ask about making an alt at some point soon, I'd like to do some more tinkering and the power loaders seem to be the way to go with that, so if the Valkyries need a fourth I'm totally up for it.

Re: OOC ~ Started 08/14
nice, so i essentially don't need to roll anything to stay in the fight ight now, Good! :D

and since i have no plans of moving this turn :P

-

On a side note, Kitten, when we do another 50 damage to the bunker this turn (I'm permitted optimism, aren't I?),

will 10 or less then disable the bunker?

ie is the roll based off of ALL the damae ssuffered by the bunker, not only the damage for that specific round?

Correct, it accumulates if you get to 120 it's more or less destroyed, which is why that's a sure thing.

Also, some of you may notice...

the TRO is down.

I have an alternate link for standard mechs, and while variants are listed there are not cost listed for them.

http://www.sarna.net/wiki/Technical_Readout:_3025

So... till i can find something reliable with the variant cost listed, variants are for the most part out of play to purchase from the start (sorry, not my fault, it's technical difficulty issues at this point.)

Re: OOC ~ Started 08/14
nice good to know :)

Once all physicals have been resolved (i had no plans of making them regardless, my piloting is normally too low for me to want to make the checks, unless I feel I must.

The Master Unit list has some costs, but I'm not sure how accurate they are:

Eden pilots require patience, and while the Power Loaders are more flexible to work with that normal mechs, they have some limitations too, mostly in the form of how many 'hard points' you have to work with.


An Alt. Eden character has 150xp and 2 800 000 cb.

Suggest making the character HERE, where the other Eden players can help you with stuff.

Useful for figuring cost of mechs, but i'm still going to have to dig up my old reinforcement sheets to track critical locations (ugh).


There is a bit of a disconnect on how much it cost for something though....

(rubs temples)

Stupid down link.

Re: OOC ~ Started 08/14
Kitten, credit for the second commando should be shared between david and I.

post #75 i did 5 to RL on it.
Then in post #114 David finished the rest of the armor on that location, auto decompressing it :)

just for the bookeeping ease :D

Re: OOC ~ Started 08/14
That's fair, it wouldnt have auto decompressed without the damage so will give you partial credit for it.

Re: OOC ~ Started 08/14
Preparing the 'Teams' for Mission ten.  (Mission NIne will be history in a day or two)

It's going to be 'wargames'.  Omni wants to test out their Eden pilots and the mercs are dueling against them.

Players will play both their mercs as well as Omni cadets.

You MUST be willing to play NPC Omni cadets to participate (otherwise this doesnt work).


Merc Characters will earn xp and cash for winning a match.

Merc Characters that hat trick their matches will be granted a nice little bonus.

The Merc unit that has the best record will be granted a piece of Conjecture Tech to be added to their unit inventory.


Merc teams will be groups of 'four' mechwarriors.  Arms Inc and the Iron swords already have four pilots.

Waiting to see if the Lancers permanently add a fourth pilot before allocating freelancers.

The Valkyries only have (2) Pilots, since Lina wont be allowed to participate (one character per player and Lina is an Alt.)

So three of the four current freelancers will be allocated to merc units for the tournament.  The last Freelancer may play normally for merc awards, though they obviously wont be a participant for Unit Awards.

Waiting for wardog and will then move the Merc.  Which probably wont travel far.
