Re: Omni's Gratitude
Before this contract I had just over 2,000 c-bills and I had to scrounge through my stuff to find enough to buy MACHINE GUNS and ammo so I wouldn't go into combat with only one short range laser.

I know your pain.

Re: Omni's Gratitude
I will not have a secondary character ready for the next mission as work is quite busy these days.  I will be playing Mattias.

No worries Matt, were going into mission 10, which is actually quite slow.

Oh.. Keep in mind, you dont have to play one fight at a time, if you can find three different bodies,you can play out all three of your matches at once, if youre really gung ho about it.

Re: Omni's Gratitude
Sifting through character sheets now...

if your mech is NOT changing all that much from Contract Three, or you have minor mods to make and you know what they are let me know.

You move up on the list to sort... if youre planning grand schemes, leave me alone while i drown in paper work.

If i drown i'm dead and stop doing paper work you know,i'm also trying to get it done before my vacation.

Re: Omni's Gratitude
Right... since no one is saying they're 'easy' i'll start with the new players and work backwards, new is usually less complicated.

Re: Omni's Gratitude
Just a friendly reminder peeps...

When it comes to anything that requires rolls, wait until Kitten signals it's all good to do so.  This tends to apply both in combat as well as during the downtime/bookkeeping that she has to do to make sure that everyone's numbers are right and can actually afford what they are bidding/buying/looking for as an upgrade.

Better to wait or ask and wait than roll, get your hopes up cause you made it as far as you knew and then you have to roll again and fail.  Those are sad, sad moments.  :)

Re: Omni's Gratitude
yes.  dont make me the bad guy on this stuff, i hate it but you have no idea the amount of work involved in getting things in order.

and... it seems were adding new players here and there increases it by minor increments but we never know when the straw will break the camels back.

Re: Omni's Gratitude
So...

Who wants to play an Omni enemy against Luc?  I need three takers :D

I'm running in an X-3a Power Loader that is 30 tons...sometimes 25.

Luc is a 3 Gunnery with Energy, 5 Pilot.

Or a VTOL squadron.

Getting some random unit of scrappy conventional fighters in the mix could be fun :)

In reply to Helia Quinn (msg # 165):

With enough ramps... there is little difference between a tank and VTOL squadron.

Just saying.

Re: Omni's Gratitude
I can tell who has a sense of humor, or understanding of the nuances of how things work based on who bids on auction 4.

Pretty funny actually.

Oh... For the Curious, Regina's stats and loadout for the next Contract is listed here...

link to a message in another game

Gunnery 2 with (5) Streaks... and if that's not enough (2) Edge point to mangle Op Force.  Blake's blessings seem to follow her.  Her record to date hasn't her sitting on any losing missions.  Of course past performances is no indication of future performance.

Re: Omni's Gratitude
So, I definitely want to roll up an alt. And most likely an edenite alt. I don't know how feasible/much of a headache it would be for you, Kitten, but I really like the idea of making a crazy edenite tank brigade. I imagine something like, the misfits from the Hope military academy, or something like that, looking to prove themselves. Just a thought. Either way, I'm having a blast and am excited to do more. :D

I think I want to play as Ziro for the tournament, though. Just getting used to the whole heavy 'mech thing, and am beginning to get a good handle on his personality. If it'd be easier to not play him, I can roll with that. Let me know what works better and I'll get on stuff today.
