That means  67% of the time Ian Hawker provides an advantage to the opposing force.

The powers that let Hawker become Khan surely recognized these weaknesses as something that could be used againdt him should he need to be removed from power.  That's whst I was getting at.

Haha. I'm pretty sure the SharkFox motto during Ian Hawker was just: "Get Killed."

I just mean, we're the clan that sets secondary objectives so that we could lose a conflict and still profit. We use merchant and watch intel to draw down bids as much as possible for an advantage. We trade bondsmen that don't fit our culture to other clans.

So as fun as "Get Rich or Die Trying" sounds as a motto it's just not really very accurate. I think you really see a trend where Clan Sea Fox is as sly as a fox until you make them angry, then the jaws music plays.

Someone can make a good avatar out of that.  Not a Sea Fox, but a good one nonetheless.

I'm pretty new to BT, haven't gotten past 3025 mechs yet, but it's going to happen with the Clan Invasion box and going off culture and color schemes I'm going with Clan Diamond Shark.  It'll get weird if I apply the markings and then join the post-3100 storyline... what do you guys normally do?  Paint a trinary for every era you play in?

I like the Rho Spina and Lambda Spina color schemes the most, and the latter looks easy enough to fill in for the Sea Fox Skate Khanate or Ilkhanate.  (Though if I were only looking at post-3100, I'd go with Spina Khanate colors.)  Anyway, did Rho Spina or Lambda Spina participate in the invasion of the Inner Sphere?  Or did they stay home? 

It'd be interesting to use those Green Stuff World color-shift paints over each other, with random little shapes in the underlying layer, to try to recreate opal on a few armor panels.

Stuff like this is what I miss about this thread.  Sadly, I'm way out of the loop when it comes to the Sharks/Foxes. :(

We kind of are a silly group.

I've also been into that video for awhile so it was nice to get someone to come in here and set me up.

There's not much for anyone to be in the loop about.  The Sea Foxes have been in a holding pattern until ilClan hits. 

IlClan!

I think unless you're interested in the Kickstarter, you're waiting for ilClan.

The Shark Foxes did not have much going on during the Invasion.  So right now it is IlClan or bust.

Omega Galaxy at Tukayyid was officially dark green with blood red accents... how far towards blue can you push that green before you're breaking canon? 

I've been getting interested in those second-line mechs in the Kickstarter, a binary at least, and this looks like the cluster with the most interesting story.  But I already have green mechs (St. Ives) and I'm not into the idea of a Christmas galaxy anyway.

This is hopeful from Pardoe's last book:

"It is tempting to bring our people together as one Clan, but taking away their distinctiveness would be an injustice I will not be a part of."

I've also read talk of "what is the Sea Foxes real role in all of this" on BLP's blog. 

I hope he's hinting at a nice juicy role behind the scenes.

Can you link that?

Yeah. I'm hoping they're cutting some good deals. The Recguide intro's make it pretty obvious that we're just trying to get in a good position after someone else becomes Ilclan. Hopefully Petr Kalasa has our back.

After his blog entry I was hoping for something different I think, but so far everybody in hour of the Wolf has been pretty disappointing.

It is what it is and it could certainly be worse.

There was one Sea Fox-related line in the book that greatly disappointed me, but like you said, it is what it is.

Anyway, I wonder how the Clan will evolve from here.
I'm still very intrigued about the state of things in the Chainelanes, especially now that we know that there's a design being manufactured there. Will the Clan have opted for a fullfledged conquest of the territory? Or are they using it more like a live training ground for their Merchants and Warriors both?

I hope we will hear more about the Chainelains.  It's nice to have a whole star cluster all to ourselves.   

But, until we stop being a literary device to explain why factions have access to certain designs, it's kind of disheartening as a fan.  I love the Sea Foxes, but we don't do anything.  Makes me wonder what our role was in Ben Rome's version of the IlClan...
