[EatTheRich] Huh. ALICE. Send her a gift basket. And piece of my dead Percy.
The rest of you start assembling me a biometric profile suite of the slain Moray jockeys and accompanying criteria for hashing their ethnological data. These schmucks are sleeping a little too well at night to be fucking with ACE; I think they're overdue to taste the sharp end of the Fabian Sword.

[EatTheRich] Wait, backburner that. Find out what went on with that Spartan, ASAP.

While I've been listening to a lot of ska and punk on Pandora recently, I stumbled across something.

80s Retro Synthwave by a guy going by the handle Perturbator.

The music's decent, but the album covers compelled me to post it.

Straight outta Night City.

Holy shit yes.
+1 Internets to you, oh majestic Sir Krensky!

Also, thanks to the "punked by Winchester" fluff, I went with the Electromags because I had the premonition that that the Moray's mystery makers would be quite generous to not upgrade it with Hardened Armor.
Shutting down machineguns is also shutting out just about all non-ATGM based portable heavy weapons as a bonus feature. The 'mags still have a little punch, maybe enough to tear apart a softened limb, even with that addition.
ACE is seriously contemplating a Hankyu revision after this last bit of intel though.
As Athena sees it the baseline expectation is a Moray down and burning for every volley -anything else is just kidding itself.

First of all, cool on the tech-sharing.
Or in other words...

[EatTheRich] Check this the fuck out: BLACK ARROWS->.
[EatTheRich] i(-_^)i
*cue .gif of a mini-Percy "raisin' the roof"*
[EatTheRich] Why yes Virginia, we are refitting the Hoplite with this too-sexy-for-primetime new technology.
[EatTheRich] How ya like us now? How ya like us now? How ya like us now?!
[Admin] *ahem*.

As for Hyperlasers, I've been poking around the idea for a while. Problem in my case is a tendency to build Small striders with weaker power plants -there just isn't enough percentage on not also taking Large Plant.
Which, for the record, the Hankyu (with a Y) should have had except for a demand for Reactive Armor. DeVore's got words for that idea, have no doubt. Angry Wink
And that's using 2 of 3 options right there. Erf.
I actually had a version of the Spartan that had tandem Field Hyperlasers. Might revisit it...

Sudden Disguise check via the crown:

Crown up. Thinking creamy, be-freckled skin, blue eyes, a small upturned nose and a haughty gait.

Thinking about betrayal, too.

"Good evening. I went for exercise. What's the excitement?

Understood, will do so when I shortly return.

Yeah, I could see Medicine, but what if you're creating a fake crime scene that doesn't involve dead bodies?

FuckIfIKnow Tongue
You're trying to engineer a lie in a tech level that had almost nothing like forensic sciences. Or any kind of sciences, really. Bluff would work if you can buy that what will follow is more like a kind of social contest (implication, brow-beating, slander, etc) about who has the greater authority to be "correct" -the whole idea of "proof" amounts to jack-fuck-all in medieval/feudal times.
It's the speaker who counts, not the speech imo. That puts us at a kind of disadvantage (outsiders, unknowns) versus the reputation of the deceased (??).

Heavy/Chaser Class

Power Plant: 5/7
Speed/Agility: 5/2

  L/R Arms: 35/35
  L/R Legs: 20/20
Load Out:
  Core: Rocket-8
  Left Arm: Gatling Laser

[EatTheRich]: Take a knee and avert your eyes, good people. The King of the Gods has answered the prayers of the United Republics Defense Command.
Sure that toga's a little lighter in the armor then our alpha design the Ares, but the Lord of Olympus doesn't dirty himself in fistfights. He's got Hoplites and Spartans for that. No, Zeus maintains his lordly distance from the base peasants in the fray, hurling the spears of his wrath, striking down the impious pretender and the foolishly defiant together.
And if some fool tempts his wrath at close range he's got a sandal for that blasphemous ass, too.
Plus the King extends his hand of protection over his allies as well. He's got room under his regal beard for everybody -except for the insufficiently demonstrative.
Those cats die before they get out of the boat, if Zeus wills it.

ACE -God is on your side.

[EatTheRich]: So yeah, a dead "Moray" a salvo? Mission accomplished. Plus, given my personal appreciation for Japan's gorgeously underdeveloped coastlines ACE understands just stumbling over the rocks isn't enough to really complete a "patrol" -hence a hover frame.
We own the water, we own the waves, we own the competition.
Everybody else can go home.
Seriously though, a sniper cannon? What, do you want those filthy eel-bots penetrating your lush heartlands? My first words to the design team were "autocannons" because duh (actually his first words were "chai latte, half-teaspoon of agave nectar, twist of organic lemon" but he got to the topic of armament relatively quickly -admin) but we understand the (deleted -admin) who write the checks get to make those kinds of mistakes. What? I uninstalled speech-to-text...

I am looking forward to slapping ACE on some new flying kill-bot-thingers though. Evil
523  Community / Play-by-Post / Re: [OOC] Way of the Wicked on: June 04, 2014, 09:10:15 PM
Ah, understood.
I'll delete my post then, and update here soon-ish.

Ooo, or dig this: self-entrenching signal relays.
Drop the Hoppers, drop the relays -which dig themselves into the turf with just an ultra-low visibility wire antenna, and go do bad bad things.
Or maybe tethers for a tiny UAV. Could be "War-Is-Hell"-aciously cool. Cool
That's part of why I took Hover for one of ACE's favored legs: for the potential low-disturbance overland travel.
Sure great whooshing fans aren't subtle, but not leaving footprints or tire/tread-tracks when you're skulking around could be advantageous.

The other thing being that I have no real idea what a baseline strider Defense score will be.
Kind of why I tend not to buy up Handling -it's not cheap (even for Light striders), and I can't tell if +1 Defense is worth a damn or not.
Also it'd be fab to have some examples of why Cockpit Comforts is awesome -"strider nookie"? Grin

Seriously. The number of American Navy "left sweaty hand/butt prints inside the cockpit of an F18D Superbug" stories I've heard is non-trivial. Hope those electronics are laminated...
"Wait, Mom: you conceived me on the flight back from Afghanistan?"
"Honey it was just your father, myself, and 11 hours in a roaring, rattling windowless box. At a certain point, you are just that bored."
