As far as I know I have never been canonized. But I have been shot at by cannons. I am just an annoying Taurian who occasionally crosses the border to say something probably not all that important, then slips back across the border. Although my name did appear as a play tester and a fact checker a few times. Although the capital city of Blackjack is Lott's Revenge and I did ask Herb one time if it was named for me and what was the revenge about, but he didn't know.

If you are waiting for me to go out of my mind you will have to wait. The exits are not clearly marked and the doors open the wrong way. Oh, and the doors are trapped!

If it was named for you, I think the obvious answer would be "Something Wombat did." ><

Is there anyone in the AFFSHC that hasn't been canonized yet?  I think we've all finally made the cut.

Not everyone...

To be fair, no one in Battletech bares my real name or some variation of it, and any reference to me can be attributed to Gundam Seed instead. Probably for the best in my case.

Besides what fan reference can compete after Pope Leo XXI got a fan song.

I still live in hope of it happening one day.

But I generally get a decent hearing for my views, likely
that's more valuable.  That, and outlasting some of the
less genial posters I've had occasion to spar with :p

Also now feeling moderately guilty, just bought a new
PC.  My existing gaming rig, is showing it's age and
caught a decent deal for a pretty decent spec.

If I didn't have to buy two cars inside of a week, I'd be looking at saving for a new machine myself. Had too darn many issues with my current laptop.

Well six years for a gaming rig, not bad.  Single upgrade/sidegrade for a GFX card about
two years or so back.  But it's just not cutting it with more modern titles.

Now if the local phone co, would run cable out my way without wanting a princes ransom.....

When the insanity of the past two years started and since I still had a job, I used the government stipend that was sent out to upgrade my board, CPU, and RAM. My only mistake was buying a monitor that said it was 4K but didn't have HDR. Someday, I will get a proper 4K monitor.

I was expecting the new machine on Thursday, it came just now.  Soon as I find my portable
HDD, I'm going to find out what an RTX3070 can do!

I fully expect my canon character to go out in a blaze of gory in the retaking of New Avalon, but I'm totally good with that.  Blood of the Martyrs and all that.

To be fair, your character got more fame than most, AW. He got a music video. No one will remember my character Admiral Mark Lee Creuset of the Federated Suns Coreward Fleet. He didn't even get a great death in the First Succession War. He got a cool flagship, but he didn't do anything with it that was interesting to anyone's knowledge.

I edited that one and was glad to see you got some prime time value for your character. :)

Is there a way to find out where your character has been used from the KS or even IF it has been used yet?

Randomly put the character’s name into Sarna.net or randomly find the name in a sourcebook like I did.

There’s a database on Sarna: https://www.sarna.net/wiki/List_of_Clan_Invasion_Kickstarter_Characters


Feel free to add yours to the list if it’s not in there.  Then you can check back periodically and see if anyone’s found it.  I think that’s how I found mine.

   Hmm. Been a while there still a place by the fire for an old brother in arms to sit and enjoy civilized conversation? If so I will bring the Scotch.

Yeah, it got damaged in a Cappie raid in '19.  We should get that looked at.

It is a bit drafty. Maybe we could just get it memorialized and get a new door?

I'm preparing for a BattleTech campaign on the Jade Falcon front in 3052. I'm wondering if any of you gentlemen would like to have a guest appearance as an NPC. Maybe even die a horrible death!

Never tangled with the Falcons, I spent my 50s on the Wolf front or back in the
Capellan March.

Go on then, you can use my name if you fancy.  Be sure I'm not driving anything
under heavy weight eh?  ;)

If you need a Wasp pilot to soak up hits, I'm game.

I have a question I want to ask the members of this thread that I've been struggling to phrase so... I'm just going to put it out there.

Are you a
Fox?
or
Hound?
