Check your history... our history, you should find a mostly complete character in there.

Re: OOC
Clan units posted... (that was a bigger pain than expected).  Take a look and confirm accuracy.  Once mission starts, you play with what you have.

Will generate map soon, and post mission objectives soon.

Re: OOC
Everything looks good for Gunnar, other than I'm not sure about Initiative Modifier being +0. Not sure how this is being computed currently, but Gunnar has tactics and a mental of 2, so I'm surprised to see a 0 mod there.

Re: OOC
I actually spent extra time this morning to make sure it was calculated correctly.

An 'average' pilot will have a +0 modifier.

An 'average' pilot should have a tn 5+ and a Mental rating of '2'.


Your tactics, brings your sub average pilot skills up to average for the modifier.


The Initiative Modifier is added to the Mission Op Force initiative rating, which for this mission is tn 7+  (average)

So you need a tn 7+ for initiative.

Xue... has a +3 initiative modifier, so she needs a tn 10+

Re: OOC
Gunnar had a question about the campaign rules.

I found these online.

http://www.battletech.com/down...uick-Start-Rules.pdf

Please download it, and browse it.

It will give you a head start on the basics of how to play.

Understood, and that makes a lot more sense. For some reason I was thinking you added the initiative modifier to your roll, not to the TN needed.

Re: OOC
Trying to streamline the math on the initiative.  The Op Force initiative affects everyone so it makes more sense to figure out everyones modifier ahead of time so they can apply it to the roll themselves against the Op Force Initiative.

Re: OOC
Husband working a new shift, and is home during the mornings.  It's been interesting trying to get use to having him around mornings.

So... my morning times when i usually log in to do all my RPOL stuff, is crushed at the moment, and i'm trying to adjust to the new schedule.

Apologies for my intermittent appearances, but till i can settle things down and get back into the groove of things, this is the best i can manage.

Re: OOC
If for some reason any of you have not already seen the new BATTLETECH computer game being made by Hair Brained Schemes (and yes the name is always fully upper case) you should take a look at their recent play style demo https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=FjEeDz51pHE

Re: OOC
Tried.

Really really really, REALLY tried.

Going to be blatantly honest here and just admit i'm burned out.

I am incapable of sustaining the campaign at this time, i thought i could, but i have to admit that my interest on the campaign is really not where it should be to continue.

While I'm willing to give it up to anyone who wants to take over, to my knowledge no one would want that position so it's just easier to put the game down at this time.

For those of you that are new, I apologize for drawing you out for no result.

For those of you that have stuck it out with me through the various missions, I appreciate your interest in the campaign past and present, but a person should have the good sense to know when the end comes, and to just leave with some dignity.  That moment might have come and gone for me, but dragging it out wont be a solution.




I have no immediate plans to delete this thread at this time, i may in the future.  I will keep it around as a reference for anything i might do in the future.

If you would like to be removed from the campaign you may request it and i will make it so.  If you'd like to be notified on anything i might do in the future, you make stay on this thread, i often put notes up on old threads to recruit for new campaigns.

So unless someone wants to step up and take over, i believe this is it.

Re: OOC
Thanks for the last few years Kitten, have a good rest. I think quite a few of us might be about in the same position, I know this campaign really wasn't tugging me very hard either. Will keep an eye out here for the future, or even something else like another Pathfinder game again.

Re: OOC
I'm taking the opportunity to explore some other genres that i have an interest in, but ignored because of the demands of this game.
