I agree. Conditionally. I have no qualms kicking the favorite faction in the crotch--repeatedly. But the fact of the matter is, I prefer to kick EVERYBODY in the crotch as often as possible, like a game of whack a mole, only here's it's whack a crotch. Because we're playing in a wargame universe, and if you're NOT getting kicked in the crotch (repeatedly), then you're not in the ****** game.

they don't get new toys, and the core.  but they don't get the crap kicked out of them again.  Do they still have to two droppers?

Davis summed it up perfectly. :thumbsup:

Interesting new story

Nice but early on Davis McCall is described as having a scouse accent, that is Liverpool-area rather than Scottish

Nice to see this get updated even if it is with a vignette about the GDL and their potential future due to the "butterflies."

Just read all the way to the end of this story, amazing work.

Now the fun question will be if he has a quiet time at school (especially when discussing his background), or if it will be glossed over via montage?


You know someone at the school will be figuring out that John Smith is a fake name, so is he a noble child who is trying to hide history, a noble's bastard son who got a trust fund and a little pull to attend, or a commoner whose family has enough money to hide his background and use the obviously fake name?  The smarter ones might figure that trying to find the history of someone with an obviously fake name would be bad for their health.

I've been following him on Spacebattles.com, and it seems we could see a new chapter this week or next, mostly glossing over his time at Sakahara.  Something about having enough characters introduced already.
