Double Deuce II/II-σ [3053] Discussion Thread
« on: 11 January 2018, 20:01:10 »
Since I now have six eight nine TEN(!!!) interested players, I figured I should open a thread for the restart of my game.

Here's the TO&E.

The old game thread, that we'll re-use as the in-character thread once we get going again.

And the thread that got this whole thing going again!

Current list of those interested:
Anastrace (who started that last thread), playing Holly Jenks, one of the unit's MechWarriors
McSlayer (who responded to the above), playing John Preston, one of the unit's MechWarriors
Failure16 (who did a LOT of the writing for the last iteration here), playing Steven Mattis, the CO's driver (and voicing a number of NPCs)
Maverick (who joined just before the game died last time), playing Eric Maddox, the pilot of the Egret attached to the JumpShip carrying the unit
And two friends of mine who I'm not sure have re-registered yet, but were dedicated players the last time around. They played:
  James Twilley, the unit's lead tanker (now re-registered as FireHawk)
  Alexander Croft, one of the unit's MechWarriors (now re-registered as Gorechylde)

Latest additions:
Tegyrius, playing Cameron McCann, the unit's S-2
Alleycat2112, playing William "Bill" Walsh, a VTOL pilot on Astrokaszy
Snimm, playing Eric Simmons, one of the unit's MechWarriors
Sebastian Llywelen, playing Maximilian Richter, a senior Jump Trooper on Astrokaszy

The S-2 shop is up.  Or will be as soon as one of the techs fixes the coffeemaker.
Some places remain unknown because no one has gone there.  Others remain unknown because no one has come back.

OK, I think we're getting close with Anastrace's character, and Failure16 and Tegyrius have sent me a ton of draft material to sort through.  McSlayer is off the net for a couple of weeks, but I think we'll be ready to roll once they get back.

I'm still in, just fighting the flu for the second time in 3 months. My partner works at a hospital, but thoughtfully brings the flu to me. :P I swear I have no idea how she never gets sick. Mutant probably.

No worries... just get better!  In the mean time, I posted a prequel piece in the IC thread.  Failure16 did a great job of detailing Crowell's brevet promotion not long before she relieved Croft as Duty Officer...

Ok, just finalized Anastrace's character (Adept I-ε Holly Jenks, one of the MechWarriors), so all we need now is McSlayer to return from their travels on Monday... O0

I think I just recruited another player last night, so it'll be a couple of more days until we officially get moving...

Twilley's back online.

I hate their verification system.  I actually have problems reading the fragging thing.

Hmm, it does not accept "No, I am a meat popsicle" in the "Are you a human?" question.

The next time you two are together, perhaps post a little conversation to get past the 10 post limit? :)

Also, I'm very close to the posting the first post in the re-started timeline... It won't require responses from everyone, but it won't preclude them either...
