FantasyCraft/MasterCraft has become my default game system, albeit with homebrew and forum add ons.

I have to agree with what Deral's saying. My players are able to understand and build surprisingly similar characters and yet take them in surprising separate directions.

I've picked up everything Crafty (except the Spellbound due to lack of funds at the time) and am grateful for the forums to have the ability to tinker and reflect on varying ideas in a constructive manner.

I'm about to plunge into another adaptation of a new Fading Suns campaign this time using New Pie Mastercraft and my players are chomping at the bit to rip into this new game.

I think you were a platinum donor for the Mihini Nui Expansion Plan... Tongue

That plan that gave me 100% control of Mihini Nui?  Cool

I'm waiting on my turn 6 dossier...  Smiley

You'll just have to wait for your turn 6 dossier to see... Cool

An update HOORAY! Things are looking interesting...

Something I noticed is that both Japanese Defense Force & Novvy Sovet have the NS abbreviation under Analyst in Rules Update.

"Who else was caught by surprise by Mihini Nui taking out the JDF & KoH contract? No one? Things seemed pretty tense at their Headquarters, and the rumour has it that CEO Hugh Paki was seriously pushing for this contract. Mihini Nui has made a big swing for what they are referring to Protecting their own Backyard. It seems to me that they seem to be claiming a BIG backyard if it includes Hawaii and Japan.

But all eyes are watching for the outcome of the Pacifica Recon Strider trials. There is no way to call for a certain outcome of this trial as it could go either way. However, Mihini Nui has seemed quite interested in the Eurowalker Cougar, when questioned further CEO Hugh Paki added "Can't fault the big machines from Europe."

While the exact specifications for the Taumaihi from Mihini Nui has been under wraps, there has been a controlled press release.

Named for the fortified tower defense of the Maori Pa, Taumaihi builds upon the popular Mihini Nui Kokiri design bringing missile defense to the forefront.
With the heavy armoured and agile grace of a typical Kokiri the Taumaihi, brings multiple AMS systems online and can still pack a meaty punch.
Mihini Nui holds onto it's familiar array of battle lasers, complimented with a power assault cannon, all boosted by a powerful clean power source to keep the fight going till the end.
This is one Strider that will be highly sought to escort any valuable asset.

 Just thought I'd explain some of the reasoning for the recent tech boom.

  ((Mihini Nui: Firebrand)) - This is the only company that has never used its trademark tech. While extra core slots have been highly sought after (probably because they' key to stacking a couple specialized items) the extra arm slots just don't seem crucial. Mihini Nui is having that issue rectified on other fronts, so they are the only company to take home a start-of-play era feature. And their buyers in Hawaii have been bugging them about it for ages Smiley.

I'm hoping with the addition of point blank weapons to make more use of the extra slots in arms now.

Other than the convenience of not getting them snagged or having them in the way when you're doing delicate work I'm not sure what advantages retractable brings to the equation. Thoughts?

That was my major thought process with some of my builds having working hands having a retractable claws or sword would help when trying to do things. Also factor of cool comes into play.

I had the urge to tinker, so I started with Mihini Nui’s Gekido in its role of Moray Killer.
  Hope you enjoyed the peek inside my brain Cheesy.

Very interesting. I've been looking at the melee weapons for some future build ideas.
How about retractable weapons?

Light/Stocky Class
  Reactive Armour, Gladiator/Maintenance Friendly, Precise Weapon (Sniper Cannon)

Power Plant:
Speed/Handling: 7/3
Armour: 90
  Core/Rear: 18/15
  L Arm/R Arm: 12/15
  L Leg/R Leg: 15/15

Load Out
Left Arm
Right Arm
  Sniper Cannon/6
  Sensors III

Gekido, the lightest strider ever produced by Mihini Nui clearly shows strong Japanese links, starting with it's name.
Built with speed in mind, it can quickly move about terrain and deal with unwanted harassment. A much sleeker and shinier finish than typical Mihini Nui designs on top that blends downward to a strong and stable bipedal system more common place with company.
Featuring a precise Sniper Cannon on a slightly larger right arm designed to hit only targeted quarry and along with top quality sensors this strider aims to hit the mark with the JDF. In homage to the brave Oita Police Force, Gekido features a shotgun in the left arm and then some AMS to counter pesky missile fire. Finally, not afraid to get in close to ensure the prey stays down, it punches above it's weight class and can take a hit and keep hitting back.

Closing Ranks or just the Borders?
Word on the wireless is that things are getting worse between URA and Japan. Looks like Hawaii has jumped onto the Japan bandwidth here and taking a joint venture together. Strider companies seem to have second sight about looming conflicts, and it seems that Mihini Nui is no different. Data sources are stating that CEO Huata ‘Hugh’ Paki has been turning a more inward direction to the competitive market and working his connections within SA, KoH and JP to secure future contracts, while cutting out on all other ventures. This has been heightened with being overlooked for contracts offered in his own backyard; Mihini Nui has been 24/7 in high level meatsuit meetings with a large collection of varied officials from all over SA, JP & KoH including some new consultants. Looks like Mihini Nui is mainlining for something big and isn't afraid to put some money where it's mouth is." Avan Starr, rising Avatar Vlogger and Royalist Information Rat

“Did you see what Hiro Yamaga did to that poor meatsuit! Just POW! Looks like I might need to add some avoidance techniques to the mix to keep asking these right questions. And from one hot head to another Mihini Nui’s board is about to explode! They are quickly out in damage control. It seems that someone on the board thought that their little strider was going to run all the way to the finish just because they had some home team advantage! I mean come on, this big world is more than just your own backyard, use your thinkmeat! Looks like Mihini Nui got to get something more than just strider grease to spread around to those new contacts. And talking about contracts Phoenix Macrotechnologies were selling some Grade A machines, taking a big bite of the strider pie with those contracts. Clearly they didn’t pull any punches."

“Having seen the destruction first hand that has laid waste to the city of Oita by some unknown savages, Mihini Nui is pledging its support to assist the City of Oita with rebuilding  and ongoing support to defend against such cowardly attacks again” - Huata ‘Hugh’ Paki CEO Mihini Nui

“Board members from Mihini Nui, those Strider builders from New Zealand, have now been spotted with a number of important business and government officials within the city of Oita after the devastating pre-dawn attack late last week. While this is not unique, with the typical photo shoot over looking damaged areas and ceremonial gestures for the thousands who lost their lives all at conducted at a safe distances and encompassed in layers of security, it is the amount of attention that YHI factories are getting. Add into this the fact that CEO’s of both companies along with the number of military uniforms all being seen together are at an all time high. Last time Mihini Nui spent time doing this brand of PR stunting the fire spewing Te Puia erupted out of Hawaii. This intrepid individual is sure something is going on and will be sending in the meatsuits to figure this one out.” – Avan Starr, rising Avatar Vlogger and general mouthpiece over the Net

For some reason I read cluster weapons as taking up an additional slot.

Adjusted Kokiri swapped out Extra Arm Weapons for Modular Weapons.

Currently Extra Arm Weapons still suits my concepts as far as Trademark Features are concerned, more so with Melee Weaponry coming up Smiley
