Was reading through one of the old Snow Raven threads and just found out the Unkind Ness forum was down. I have been away from the nest for a Long time.

Never knew most of those guys too well…. But I know of the forum and I’m ashamed to say if they knew me from then it was in my bad days as a gamer.

I've got to say I do miss talking to various people from there, especially Spike, hope she's doing okay.

Spike is still out there, keeping watch against the Tetaetae menace in the Deep Periphery.  8)

Good to hear.

In other news, I nominate myself to be the official Scorpion Ambassador to the Raven Alliance.

And the Scorpions could be a strong source of mechwarriors and elementals with the completion of the Hanseatic Crusade.

We talked back in April. She's working at a casino, and doing well, all things considered. I will pass on your regards.  :thumbsup:

Well I had Albatross handle the hosting and the forum itself, when he passed, all of that lapsed. That's why The Unkindness went under. I was also a bit stressed out from school to find alternatives to keep the forum online. Subtext: there was also some weird drama on the forum and I wanted a break. But also, that was over 10 years ago. You just noticed?

I had been away for a while when it stopped, about that point I was being worked quite illegally for over a year and finally switched jobs. I always meant to go back and check again but never really had the time. Wow 10 years.

It fits quite well in the RA assault line up, so I am quite happy about it.

Is it just me, or do we seem to get a lot of the Smoke Jaguar hand-me-downs: Stormcrow, Iron Cheetah, Stone Rhino, Subutai, etc?

I mean, ravens are scavengers...

Also, the Jaguars and Ravens had ties through the Howell bloodhouse.

The Stormcrow was always a Raven design though wasn't it?

Yes*.
The Omni-Corvis the Stormcrow is based on is a Hell's Horses design but i would say the Stormcrow is different enough to be called a true Raven design.

I know it is not accurate but I am calling the Scorpions the Star League in Exile. That is all.

I kind of have this expectation that that is what the clan home worlds will be when we see them again.

Actually with the Adders in charge I could see that.

Any one else find it odd and funny that the Ravens and the Scorpions are sitting around in the Periphery just going along, minding their own business and not suffering any of the craziness the other clans are going through. I can't wait to see what the Ravens do when the ilClan fallout starts speeding up.

When you are sitting around out in the middle of nowhere, there are fewer people to shoot at you.  In comparison, Terra is the heart of all the action, and anyone who holds it gets squashed sooner or later: the Terran Alliance, Terran Hegemony, House Aramis, Comstar, Word of Blake, Republic of the Sphere...

Should be noted the Ravens have been suffering raids from the Draconis Combine and are gearing up with expectation of Inner Sphere wars reaching them eventually. Just sayin' the Ravens may not be that uninvolved anymore soon.

In the back of IlClan sourcebook, in the Kurita section specifically, we have mention of a naval star moving from the Alliance going spinward through Combine space.  Wonder if they are headed to Terra?  I don't think it's to pick up a pizza or tacos.  Wonder what that will be about.
