Kitten:
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.


Wait... are they switching to Main Eden characters?

I mena i'm not complaining if that's the case :P

To my knowledge, they're rolling up alts.  (if that's not the case i need to be notified, cause that means a mulligan is being used)

I'm out moving stuff into the new place. Calling it quits for the night once I get there and get the last load in. Shower and food then I'll post. To do the firing math off my head..... Base 4 + No Movement + No Range - 4 Def = TN 0. If my math is right and you want to wrap it up, you can feel free to do so without my contribution in rolling. I have faith in my whopping 10 points of damage!!! ;)

Re: OOC ~ Started 08/14

Quick question: is the price quoted under the Auctions thread: Omni's Gratitude the bottom line or the unmoded price?  Sorry if that's a dumb question but I cross checked against the Campaign Reference Thread prices and the numbers don't work out (or I'm junk at math... it's probably the latter).

For ER ML for example - is the final cost 320K or 640K?

Re: OOC ~ Started 08/14
320, she doubled it for you already.

then you'd pay the 'installation cost' based on the base price of the ERML

So in your case it would be 160,000 * 1.40 = 224000 thus you'd pay 64,000 to install it on your Whitworth.

Re: OOC ~ Started 08/14
Just finalized the Auction, presuming you blow up the control room (good chance unless a lot goes wrong, like Ana rolling a 11 or 12), Omni's Gratitude is pretty notable.

A lot of stuff there that you havent seen in a long time, and even stuff there that hasnt been seen ever in the campaign.  Think carefully on what you want to get.

(pokes Olaf)

You're smoking something if you pick up the ER ML over the other half of the Endo steel you need to get your whitworth on Endo Steel.

No.  I actually changed my mind on that, and made it 160,000.

That's no small price, and it's a one crit weapon, so it takes a hit and it's gone.  Plus i'm considering how large a ride increase it would cost to get one, and decided to make it base cost like everything else.

Re: OOC ~ Started 08/14
You must make your For Sale purchases BEFORE the auction.

Because... well some players are out at the moment (Kurt and David come to mind), and i dont want to start/end the auction with notable amounts of people out.

Auction will start last week of August, and conclude a few days into September.

You can submit your for sale request here.

Any one that does not make a request will get the default 100,000 cb for not buying anything.

Yes, numbers.

Just using the ER ML as an example, definitely got my eye on that Endo Steel

Omni's Gratitude
* Hands over a wad of C-Bills *

I want ...

(1) ton of Endo Steel and 5xp.

Cost 160,000cb for Endo.
Cost 100,000cb for xp.

It's not enough Endo Steel for my Raven yet, but you have to start somewhere, and this is only the second time in the campaign's history that Endo Steel has been made available.

Re: Omni's Gratitude
* ponders *

I already have 2 tons of Endo Steel... which is good for up to a 40 tons of mech.

If i pick up a power loader, i'll need more, so... i guess... endo steel it is.

(1) ton of Endo Steel and 5xp.

Cost 160,000cb for Endo.
Cost 100,000cb for xp.

Mechs: Users.annet.com
If we can find a host before yahoo replaces the search cache, one can currently bring up the yahoo "backup" page and save it on their hard drive.  Type in the Mech name and the site name on the yahoo page, and when the listing comes up select the "cached" link at the end of the description text instead of the link.

To bring up the Valkyrie type the following into the search engine:

Why go for an X-3c when I can go for an A-3 in the corner pocket?

Re: Mech Parts Auction:
Right.  Just waiting for Ana to make the 'big' roll.

If she flubs it... Omni's gratitude is a lot less impressive.

No pressure...

:P

(ponders)

You're not buying Endo?  or that ER ML?  Really?

You can get that Conversion kit by throwing extra money at it, i dont think youre going to see Endo steel too often.  You just got your X-3A, you really want an A-3 so badly?  o.O

Re: Omni's Gratitude
I was kind of waiting to see if I got any money from the Mechs we shot down and to figure out the repair bill before buying things at the auction / bidding.  When do I have to accept the 100,000 bills?  Can I still purchase XP and would they be able to be used with my Exceptional aptitude?
