  2. Max smiled. "I am an Army Ranger, ma'am. After the initial rush, my older brother John, also a Ranger, joined the new battle armor units, and I was seconded to become a test pilot for General Motors. I missed the GM-5 and the GM-7series, though I did get time in them during my time as the primary test pilot for the GM-9 series mecha." The GM series, while unimaginatively named, were a progressively more advanced series of mass produced trooper style mecha. The GM-9 had multiple variants depending on what was needed, but the technology was integrated, a sniper would always be a sniper

  5. David was quiet, she was not fond of flying, but her curiosity overrode her anxiety. This new trooper she did not know. She had trained with some of the others or at least had seen them on the base, Mecha drivers were a small community and while your may not know someone you at least knew of them. Not so this Max Croft. "Trooper Croft," she almost had to shout to be heard over the sound of the engines, "why is it we have never seen you on base before today?"
  6. Alfred after loading the rifle raised the still detached scope to his eye once again. The view was obscured by the shadows cast from the trees and he could really make out little detail, but one thing was certain, he saw nothing moving which meant the camp was likely abandoned. As he passed his scope once more over the camp he suddenly paused and swung it back. He reached up and adjusted the focus, lowered the scope, and looked with his naked eye. Even at his age he still had perfect vision, but he did see it, whatever it was. “I think that is a body,” he points, and the others str
  7. Silas gave Evelyn a small nod, catching the slow pitch point she was making. "Maybe we should do another sleep-over, give Darryl a proper welcome to the street. We could head out to the Cabin, go swimming in the lake, have a fire for s'mores, that sort of thing. It's the perfect time of year for that." He looked around the group, asking, "Sound like fun?"
  8. The aged hunter gently removed the hunting rifle he had requisitioned from the leather holster strapped to his light backpack's side frame, and laid it across his hip as he hunkered down, sliding a rifle round into its chamber. Without taking his eyes off the scene, he nodded. His eyes tried to make out details in the shadows between the trees, where the openings might reveal a glimpse of metal, or movement of people. "Two on two, either side, the old Zulu approach," he offered, "Diego's good at stealth, how's your friend?" His forehead was tense and frowned, but his fa
  9. Gabriel smiled even as Marco let out a dismissive snort. "It is nice to be remembered well, even if not perfect details." He smiled at Deerstalker. "You're perceptive, I grant that. Yes I did ask them to not announce our presence like some visiting dignitaries, though I hadn't expected them to not say anything to any of you at all." He bows his head in response to the words of Saibh. "Again, my apologies for that. We had no wish to interrupt your rest and festivities, but things have begun to happen that meant we had to come tonight." Marco sighs. "You youngsters, a
  10. With the mecha crated up like Cargo, Max and the other pilots were all in a single plane, which seemed abit strange to Max. Still the reason was due to the length of the flight, which was indeed damn long. He'd have liked to get into the cockpit of the T-X and run his own tests before they got there, but that simply wasn't in the cards. The question they all had, regarding their PPA backup, well he didn't have a good answer there, and kept the worst of the ones he'd come up with quiet. He did wonder if they'd actually get PPA backup, without it, they'd never be able to recon any tunnels,

    Looking at an unassuming young lad that would rather be anywhere but in the village he lives in. He believes in the old stories and wishes he lived in those times. Still looking through the playbooks but leaning towards heir to a legend or village hero.

    so let's talk here, or in chat on what we're all sorta lookin at I'm shamelessly looking at making someone who's serious to a fault, straightforward, yet somewhat wise. A fairly skilled hunter, and a decent warrior. So yeah, goblin slayer without the pathological hatred of goblins.. and all the trauma that caused such...

    Heh. I'll be back in town in December, so I'm game. And I have a dnd binder full of npcs I'd be happy to trot out again (in spirit) for this concept of Nina's.
  14. Ayato frowned. "I won't order you to change, I just wanted to state I think it better to make the initial survey in tech we fully understand, even if it does take abit longer." "While time is not a resource we can waste, Neither is experience, and yours will be essential for what is to come you know. I don't mind you going out on point, but I do wish you'd do so in your normal suit. Once we establish things are as they seem, then we can break out the alien tech and go to work."
  15. Hank seemed quite surprised when Evelyn just appeared. "Holy Crap, when did you get here?" He said before thinking better of it as he looked at Evelyn. He hadnarrival,'s 't even had the chance to reply to Darryl's arrival, and shrugged. "Sorry for not saying Hi any sooner, Darryl. It's nice to meet you." Hank gave him a friendly and welcoming smile.
  16. Alan frowned as he looked around, taking in the mound, and when Alfred went to use his scope, he instead kept a watchful eye, knowing they could have wandered into a trap, already, despite how careful they'd been. Anna remained quiet, concerned about the missing team, but knowing that she needed to let the trio do their thing. Quietly Alan whispered. "Do you think we should split up on our approach, or remain together?" There were advantages and disadvantages to both approaches, and he'd defer to the more experienced hunter in this instance. He was calm, despite how things looked, a

    I am going to put this up here in case we do this unless any potential players have a suggestion for what we play I am going to be using an OSR Fantasy set which you may download below. https://drive.google.com/drive/folders/1VPHfESebZ-KOx8DzIq4MRGf6-sninP8N?usp=sharing Any one interested should download this folder and familiarize yourself with the rules, it is an OSR version of D&D and is much simpler than the 5e or pathfinder rules you are likely used too. but it is perfect for something like this. Choose one of the playbooks to make your

    I am open to this, though i'm probably one of the chief offenders at being gone due to holiday scheduling (Damnable Blue Empire...) maybe some sort of special guest appearances..
  19. "Yes, well, that is the question," Sean murmured as she glanced down at herself and tightened her robe. "What to do with this new, and very different, life I've been given. I don't think I'll be satisfied going back to just being a junior architect working in an office." The spicy rage wafting from Brigit shifted into something sweet Sean thought of as desire. Want. A hint of something similar came from Grace. Her smile deepened. Sean wasn't sure if either woman was gay, or even bisexual or pansexual, but she was aware of the effect she was having on them without really even trying. She'd

    I'm largely at home and when the holiday slowdown happens, my job is going to slowdown a bit, just like Malachite's. RL stresses will hopefully start easing up and I can be more present here coming up, but holidays isn't going to really be affecting things negatively as far as presence goes. I'm open to a holiday game, could be fun.

    I think for the most part Dawn and I won't see a ton of difference between holiday/non-holiday. We have some grandparents that have been mostly sharing our quarantine bubble that'll come visit for a bit, but we're not planning to go anywhere or host major events. The time off of school might actually give Dawn a bit more time to post here. I'm hoping the slowdown that'll likely happen at my job will mean I can be a bit more present here.
  22. Next week begins the 2020 holiday season and even with this being the shit year it has been I expect the usual type of slow down in posting and availability of players to coordinate in various games, in fact already seeing some of that. This is all expected and it is a fine thing to spend time with your family. however there are always some of us who for whatever reason don't take time off from gaming during this time and they are usually forced to wait untill things get back to normal in January and it can be a bit of a drudge to want to play/write and not be able to.

  24. Fighting her own blush and feeling the nagging pink otherness, Grace was entirely sympathetic with Brigit's shocked expression. Still Brigit had made a bit of noise, and there was a mess that needed fixing. She was good at fixing messes when the messes weren't her own emotional issues. You just dug and dug and dug until you found an approach that worked and then you stuck with it. Easy if you had the emotional stamina for it. "Yes, you're both very very pretty. Powers can do that, and you were both very lucky," the blonde Stormer began, getting herself under a more-steady emotional
  25. Adrenalin and quantum energy created a heady mix and Brigit was hyped to the max. The fear that her sister had fallen prey to some stormers because of Brigit’s own antics that had somehow led them to her family had put Brigit into a fight mode unlike any she had ever been in before. This wasn’t a ring and theses were not known threats. Her quantum senses were still showing the quantum signatures of the entire room including the two women in front of her and her honed fighters training took the measure of them both at a glance. The blond was a more readable threat her en
  26. A tingle of warning raced up Sean's spine and she spun around on a heel just as the door to her hotel room burst open, her long, glistening hair flaring behind her like a piece of pure dawn light. Minute motes of coruscating blue and purple and silver dancing in the depths of her pupils exploded in intensity and number, spiraling out to engulf her irises, then expanding to cover the entirety of her sclera until her whole eyes were incandescent with quantum energy as she instinctively sheathed herself in skintight, invisible particles of protective gravitons. A piece of the shattered
  27. Karen drew in a breath, replaying the many times she'd had that same argument in her head with herself before coming to a conclusion. "Sir, I disagree. Doc... Carrie needs all the info she can get if we're going to get any of the rest of you out there to help gather resources, and if the sensors on my suit are 'woah', the sensors on the new suit are 'Wooooooooah'," she stated, adding appropriate hand gestures to bridge the gulf of sheer bandwidth between the two, "We get the data. We get the upgrades. We get home, assuming there's anyone to go home to, Sir. This is a test, and we a
  28. Grace was moving to put herself between Sean and the new arrival even before she was sure what happening, filled with a familiar, unshakeable reservoir of calm in the face of a physical crisis and the certainty that whatever was about to be dished out she could take it. The blonde Stormer had fought bigger, and as she took in Brigit, her feet shifted, taking up a defensive stance the boxer would recognize as the unpolished product of street level brawling: full of holes but serviceable in a pinch. A night's worth of trawling the internet and the flurry of videos regarding Brigit's
