Re: OOC Discussion
So far we have a majority for Analyst's proposal. Unless anyone objects we'll use that one and I'll start the game tonight. (In a few hours)

Re: OOC Discussion
Analyst's proposal carries.

I'll set up pre-turn 1 in a little bit and you can begin your proposals.

And so it begins. Please check the relevant threads to get the information and prepare your budget for the first financial cycle.

Re: OOC Discussion
Harbinger- What is the process for researching something that is not listed on the research list. Lets say for example I wanted to advance research in the field of cryogenics.

Do we just throw out an idea and put some money behind it? Cryogenics 50m

Do I just build a cryogenics facility under construction and engineering?

Some other way?

I am sure we have lots of ideas, so I do not know if you want to guide the research paths, or you want us to jump in with all kinds of ideas.

Re: OOC Discussion
Both of those will work.

You can try to research pretty much anything that would fit the current tech level.

Facilities to boost research are a good idea, but realize you'll have to start paying maintained costs on these things. They'll also have passive or active bonuses as well. A research facility could give you bonuses on specific types of research rolls.

In your example, a cryogenics research facility would give bonuses to anything cryogenics related. The more specialized the facility, the bigger the bonus.

If you throw out an idea, you're basically asking for a feasibility project unless you think it could be accomplished now.

Cryogenics could probably be developed to a working stage with the technology you have now. (After all, you all came here on a cryogenic sleeper ship. You'd just have to reverse engineer tech you already have access to, so that wouldn't be all that difficult.)

On the other hand, if you wanted to take it further than a working production model, you might have to spend more research on it and specify what you're trying to improve. (Power efficiency, detrimental health effects, etc)


I'll let you know what the cost of such research is estimated to be.

Re: OOC Discussion
Doesn't look too bad, there's quite a few 70's as well

Re: OOC Discussion
It's a mixed bag, but that critical success on the events roll will be very good for you. Give me some time to write up details.

Re: OOC Discussion
Harbinger- The turn was well worth the wait! I love the thought and detail that you have put into the game so far. I just wanted to say thank you for running this game.

Re: OOC Discussion
Likewise, it's wonderfully rich - thank you!

One clarification - can we now train OMNI Divisions as well as Hegemony Division or was that a one off? Not intending to, but worth knowing

Re: OOC Discussion
Thanks for reminding me, that slipped my mind. Yes. the intention is that you can order OMNI to recruit additional divisions (under their control)

Please shout if I'm not leaving enough time for folks to prepare budgets and post. Not my intention to dominate, just to keep the tempo of the campaign :)

Re: OOC Discussion
Fellow players, pleased to report one 100 and several over eight or in the high nineties. Sadly research fared poorly and we have a couple of sub-tens

Definitely, though perhaps we need to spend more on counter-intelligence to beat the Diceroller ;)
