Kitten:
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.


OK, sounds good.  Should we create a new character so that it can be discussed in the Valkyrie's ready room (so that messages don't get missed buried amongst all the other OOC?


To start out what is everyone in and what are the needs of the lance?

I'd say the two powerloaders that pique my interest most are the X-3A with the hatchet or the A3-S EW loader.  I realize that with only 150 xp the character would have to be purpose built towards qualifying for EW, but after a quick glance I think it is possible?  (Mental 2, technician 2, 25 XP left over) so is either type something that would fit well in the unit?  or do you guys have any suggestions of what exactly you need?

Re: OOC ~ Started 08/14
Malcolm, you have 2.8 million available.

remember there are some options you cna buy from the auction thread on top.

that in mind, another option for you could be to get an A-3, that's a 5/8 30t mech with 10.5t open for fitting, at 1'864'720 cb.

leaves you with a little over 900k for fitting it up.

I do believe it has an EW hardpoint option (Kitten, correct me if I am wrong)

and at the same time it will have weight left over for actually running weapons, whichever you may like, within the Power loaders 15/25% of mass constraints.

Edenites gain access to conjecture tech instead of advanced tech, and you get to pick one option without extra charge, so you only pay normal cosst for that.

Plug suit has been found to be really valuable for this, especially for the alt edenite characters who will have very low piloting ratings at their beginning, it's a 1t modification, which grants a bonus of 1 to most piloting rolls (if not all)

Keep in mind there are requirements to pilot an A-3, the new pilot would have to meet those requirements to pilot an A-3

(A-3 Module, and Ferro Fib)

And there are ways to spend xp to gain xp and spend c-bills to gain xp which could mitigate some issues.

Re: OOC ~ Started 08/14
still possible, though it'll begin to get  kinda tight economically, between the 100k for the extra conjecture, the 250k for the kit.

that'd leave only 500k, which is still enough to fit out the mech, but certianly getting tight.

It's up to them, it's certainly possible to get into an A-3.

You would be giving up access to other Conjecture tech if you did though.

Contract 3 Auctions posted... mostly.

The only thing not posted is Omni's Gratitude which is waiting on the results of Advance and destroy.

It would be notably better if Arms Inc and the Valkyries complete the mission.

Re: OOC ~ Started 08/14
Curious to see how much the mercs plan on doing to the bunker this turn.

Kitty Estimates...

Ana - AC6/ML/ML = 16 damage
Joaquin - ML ML = 10 damage
Ziro - AC2/ML/ML= 12 damage
Matt - spotting for Roger
Roger - L10/L10 = 12 damage

Total damage = ~50 damage

that would be a roll of 8 or 9 (or less) to bust the controls up...


Those are pretty good rolls, my guess is Ana will be doing the rolls.

Re: OOC ~ Started 08/14
if we deal 50 damage it's at 101 damage taken... wouldn't a 10 qualify too then?

All players may not make their final weapon fires for the mission.  Viking and Quix may move before doing so.


I'm assuming that's a now, not a not?

-

Also, would ana be able to use her targeting computers called shot option to gain some kind of advantage on the bunker in exchange for the penalty to hit?

(would take it from 3+, to 4+ though,  since it basically cancels out the advantage from stationary object :P)

or is it impossible to make called shots against a bunker :P

1/10 of 101 = 10.1 ~> Fractions are dropped = 10 ~> tn 9-

I'm willing to skip the Fractions are dropped to give you the 10-

You guys are trying hard, and are going to take obnoxious damage again for it, so i'll give you the fractional round off.

Re: OOC ~ Started 08/14
Viking moved.

I need Quix to decide if he's still in it or not, and Viking needs to know if he has a spotter or not.

The rest of you can start blasting away at the helpless bunker.

Re: OOC ~ Started 08/14
Ziro, I believe the TN of your AC/2 would have been 5, not 7... still a miss, but:
gunnery 5, +4 from minimum range, -4 from immobile target = 5+

you don't apply the minimum cap till after all modifiers are put together :)

Still a miss, but *shrug* calculations done right are important :)

Re: OOC ~ Started 08/14
Hm... you're at 77 damage, with another 10 probably from Joaquin to bring it to 87.

Then it's on Rogers random missile rolls, which should average another 12 to bring it to 99 (tn 9-, looks to be the likely roll now.)

Re: OOC ~ Started 08/14
Up to a 9- If Joaquin lands both lasers you'll be up to a 10-.

Going to resolve Op Force fire at this time, since no one else is moving.

Re: OOC ~ Started 08/14
We're up to a target number of 9- for success, if youre willing to presume Wardog is shooting the Bunker, i will accept your roll to see if the control room has been disabled.

If you actually roll the '10', we'll be watching Joaquin's rolls REALLY hard.

If you roll a '11' or '12' you fail to take out the control room.

Anything else is success.

(I want to wrap this up and start bookkeeping.)

Re: OOC ~ Started 08/14
Quix and Ziro are both rolling up Eden Pilots.

So i will presume these new pilots are used for mission ten tournament, which gives the Valkyries a full (4) Pilots.

That leaves War Dog as the loose Freelancer, who will compete with out a unit.

O hey, just FYI in relation to the mech list being down, Skunkwerks seems to have accurate pricing on everything and is searchable by year and variants and stuff.

I dont see the link in question.

Pull me up a Valkyrie-QA, and give me the link to look at it.

You said you could look up mech stats, i couldnt find a link.

So.. search me up a Valkyrie 'QA' variant.

Then post the link for me to look at it here so i can see what the sheets look like.
