Re: OOC for USS Raptor
Congrats!

I'm heading into finals week as the semester is coming to a close. Because of that, my activity here will be somewhat limited for the next two week.

Re: OOC for USS Raptor
A new post will be up on Wed or Thurs no matter what I have to do. Thank you for your patience, the time following my anniversary was a time of fire and madness, to borrow a phrase from the Goblin Punch blog.

Re: OOC for USS Raptor
I acted on Astrid's behalf (sort of, by giving you the sensor feed from the lander she's commandeering) because she has expressed she may leave the game and I didn't want you folks to have to wait for a response that might never come.

Anyone using the sensor data to fire the beams will need to roll 1 die at first, because the lander's sensors are not that good and the enemy is partially screened by Raptor's hull.

If Astrid returns, she can decide how she wants to improve that, likely by taking off and attacking. If not, I'll NPC her for now and also any of you bridge types can try to refine the data. Working together you can get up to rolling 3 dice pretty quickly.

I'll shoot another message to Astrid and see where this goes.

Re: OOC for USS Raptor
Just as a clarification, we're the cool crew on the cool ship, the USS Raptor.

It's the other guys on the USUCK Ladybug.

Re: OOC for USS Raptor
I only have two words to say about that:

Bloody Hell.

Sorry, I had written an advert for new players for Ladybug and had a brain dump of some sort. Will edit.

The Ladybug gets passed over for everything since the Squid Incident.

She's pretty much held together by duct tape and weaponised cheerfulness at this point.

Re: OOC for USS Raptor
As it happens I did not sign up for any particular ship, so I assume I am on the most important one by default.

Re: OOC for USS Raptor
Well I was specifically recruiting for USS Ladybug because we need new members for an Away Team.

Very tactful way of dodging the question of which ship is most important.

I know, right?

No, seriously, all daddy's children are equal. Though Ladybug was built first...

Will Rintoth or Synthea have questions or actions in response to Something Else?

Re: OOC for USS Raptor
Sorry, I was waiting for Rintoth, but I came up with something, though not all together helpful. :)

Is it possible for Synthea to speak directly to the Something Else? I'm not sure if androids should be receptive to telepathy.

Re: OOC for USS Raptor
Hi folks, apologies for another delay. Good news bad news:

Bad news: I've been working 60 hours or more per week between a regular job, running my own business (where I sub out as a writer of marketing copy) and an elected position in local government. Today and parts of tomorrow I will have my hair on fire getting small pieces of several projects done. And the parts when I don't have my hair on fire are going to be when I'm at church and driving.

Good news: I've accepted a position with a local marketing agency as their head of content and will now work 40 hours a week making more money. (YAY!) So my next post will be during the day on Monday (going to Wisconsin for 3 days for a well-needed rest) and then I will post regularly in the evenings, Central Time.

The job went longer than expected, but I'll be back home this weekend to a more reliable internet connection. Sorry for such an extended absence, I'll catch up and get a reply posted before the weekend is through.

Very glad you will be back. It looks as if we might get moving again soon.
