Still no word from the new player, despite PMs coming back up.  I'll try to get an IC post up tomorrow.

Heard back from the new player!  They're travelling, so it'll be a bit before they can re-engage.  I'll still try to get that IC post up today...

Their traveling? Are they using a JumpShip to get here?

Heh, I don't think so, but their connectivity is limited.  I've been sucked into re-reading Drakensis' excellent Frederick Steiner and the Man Who Knew Too Little, so I'm probably not going to get to that IC post today... sorry guys!

It's been a busy month or so for me, so my posting has been slow, plus working on integrating new players.  Not dead yet, though! :)

The newest player has opted for the Rifleman!  He insists his call sign is NOT "Death Wish", so I'm offering him a free Class A Refit to move two points of armor from the CT to the Head.  But of course, I'm also offering him what's behind Door #2... ;D

Smoke going the manual target that Stinger without being obvious about it.  Ie I'm not aiming the PPC directly at him, but the SRMs will be set on him.

Getting closer with SSGT Demetrius Drakos, whose been with the unit since they fled Anton's Revolt.  His call sign is "3D", as his middle name also starts with "D"... ;)

Between him and Top, you have an excellent AAA umbrella. :)

3D would have had a few ideas during the month between landing and the current trip to town.

Idea the first:  Dismount the Marauder's AC5 and mount it on the heavy fire truck at OLF Skinner.  Load it with 5 or so rounds, the rest of the ammo saved for mech reloads (assuming all of the unit's mechs AC5s are the same model/caliber).  Just something to discourage door to door salespeople knocking on the base's gate.

Idea the second:  Mount the SRM4 from the Panther onto a light fire truck with 3 or 4 reloads.  Rest of the ammo for mech reloads.  Another something for anyone asking if we've "Heard about the good Word of Blake".

Idea the third:  Build some homemade infantry SRM launchers (Drakos Industries will be IN NO WAY responsible for any unfortunate end user mishaps)

I assume everything above has long odds of happening but it doesn't hurt to ask.

On a more reasonable request, 3D would like to build a few archery bows and arrows in his spare time and if parts can be scrounged from DS wreck.  Something for exercise and target practice.
