So, is anyone else signed up for the Destiny beta next week?

No body? Sad

If it was on PC, I'd be all aboard the Ghost Edition.  It's on PeasantBox One and PotatoStation 4.  Sadly, I will not be playing.

Yeah, yeah.

PC Master Race.

* Yawn.

LOL.  Was reading some Reddits.  Those terms just make me laugh.  In all seriousness though, if it was on PC, I'd be playing.  But it's a console, and I just don't see myself using a console nearly enough to grab one.  #sadface.

The only issue I had with that episode was it only took 1 transmission factor, and it's the transmission factor that's the 'easiest'.

The end is nigh!  Grin

Very true!

Extra nigh:  Ours arrived this week.  Smiley

Congrats mate!

Welcome back TSK! Glad to hear the baby bear arrived (dropped?) safely, if untimely. My little dude just turned 9 mos. Total blast!

Yes.  She dropped successfully, and has already been a handful.

Was it Metal Gear Solid that had a War Economy? Seems like we're one step down that road..

..and howdy folks!  Been awhile.  Baby Koala was born at the same time Koala started a new position with a different agency at the same time Koala was trying to unpack his house and do some renovations.  CRAZY YEAR!

Is it wrong that my first character would probably be some only mildly repentant bastard who helped set the whole apocalypse in motion in the first place Shocked?

What? Talking people down from shooting you in the face when they find out is loaded with role-play opportunities...

You better have been really important part of the process and not just the button pusher to survive the first guy who lost his family.

Biker gangs, militia, deserted military units, police units who have lost their cities.  I'm not sure how far down the sociological scale Crafty is willing to go with this license.  Quite honestly I'm not sure how far down that scale I'm willing to play as a game. 

The human condition can get pretty.. ...grim... when society breaks down and power is supreme.  Maybe there are "morale" levels.  This group is black.  Kill on sight.  These guys are Green.  They're known as good guys.  Leave it as an innuendo.  I dunno.. we'll have to see the published product.

Sentient and Sapient Zombies?  Wouldn't that just be an Biological OpFor that specializes in cannibalism?

It still pains me how the company who printed Ebberon (sp?) can so utterly miss with other creative endeavors.  Ebberon is one of my all time favorite worlds.  ...inside one of my all time hated systems....

That suggests another neat Z-Corps scenario: bringing a successful enclave of survivors in from the cold. And everybody is armed to the teeth. Good opportunity for diplomacy roleplaying when a misstep means not only do you lose good men, but you also lose human survivors just because they'd rather die than pay taxes again. Or at least they think that long enough for a very short, very sharp exchange of gunfire.

Honestly, this is feeling like a pretty versatile platform. Amazing what you can do when you dial down the 'End is Nigh' just 1 or 2 notches.

Player buddy brought up.. "What if you play Counter-Z Corp?  Civilians who don't agree with the powers that saw this happen remaining in power.  Could easily break down into a Civil War / Segmented Freedom campaign where the Z's are just the background problem."

Another question is do you bother with diplomacy?  Take down the armed gunmen from a superior position, order the rest to disarm and secure the women and children and the rest of the supplies?  Then give the men a choice.  Join up or die in the cold.

You're going have a bloody short list of volunteers to go rescue politicians, just sayin'.

You're going to have an even shorter list of analysts who suggest its a viable mission.

LOL.  You know.. I never thought of it like that.. I just always got the "NOT A LIBERAL" = "Someone trying to pick a fight with a liberal". 

Maybe I should start labeling my trees.  "NOT A EUCALYPTUS".  ...and then frown at it. 

Let me be clear: I know being a Marsupial is a sensitive topic. I intend no slur upon my respectable pouch-bearing brethern.
I welcome any and all open dialogue with such a community.
But no kicking, biting, or scratching. I mean it. Decorum, people. And fur allergies.

But yeah, dehumanizing. Way too much "I AM NOT LIKE YOU AND THAT IS GOOD" and not enough "WE SHARE IMPORTANT COMMONALITIES. LIKE A LOVE OF CAPITALIZATION. AND TIG OL' BITTIES."

My bumperstickers would be "Cui Bono?", because it's important and "Are you a Jeweler?" because it's whimsical. Wink

Pft.  It's always those damn Roo's.  Always with their Hip Hop and fighting at all hours of the day.  (See what I did there?  ha!)

I've always wondered why humans aren't more like ants.  Ants are INCREDIBLY smart when they're part of their super organism, yet measurable idiots when on their own.  Where as humans are creative on their own, and incredibly stupid as a group. 

As for Asset Recovery inside of a Zombie sprawl?  I suppose the question would be what is the "line".  Would the POTUS and Selectmen of the country even meet that line?  Or are we going to use intelligence / society benefits as the line?  What about artists and musicians?  What about children who can't meet that line?  It's definitely an interesting question.

LOL.  Well, tin foil hats aside.. (and don't tell King Nutball Jessie Ventura).. It's easier to train something that is 'fun' than it is that is something that instantly triggers your morale 'Huh?' button.
