intro your new clan idea
« on: 03 March 2014, 22:57:05 »
since herb needs a tread to be silly with here is the greatest idea for the writers. since we seem to be loosing the clans left and right over the years i thought that we should come up with some new ones to bring back the fun of the clans. YES, THIS TREAD IS VERY MUCH MEANT TO BE VERY SILLY FOR EVERYONE INCLUDEING HERB AND THE REST OF THE STAFF......

CLAN HIGHLANDER: THE CLAN ALL ABOUT BEING SKILLED WITH A SWORD, CAN NOT DIE UNLESS YOU TAKE THIER HEAD.....AND FOR SOME REASON NOT ONE CAN FIGURE OUT, THEY CAN HIDE REALLY BIG WEAPONS ANYWHERE.

CLAN CANNONFODDER: DO YOU NEED AN ARMY? NO PROBLEM, WE CAN HAVE 50,000 TROOPS FOR YOU WITHIN 30 DAYS WITH GEAR. THEY WILL LAST 5 YEARS BEFORE FROPPING OVER DEAD AND THEY DO NOT SUFFER FROM THE STORMTROOPER EFFECT.

CLAN MINION: SOMEONE HAS TO FIX EVERYTHING AROUND THE BASE OF THE EVIL OVER LORDS EVERYWHERE.

CLAN BASED OFF A REAL LIFE THING: THEY WEAR KILTS, THEY PAINT THEMSELVES BLUE BEFORE GOING INTO BATTLE, AND THEY REALLY, REALLY LOVE SHEEP.

CLAN CUTNESS: WE ARE SO SUPER CUTE EVERYONE ELSE JUST GETS SICK OR TEETTHACHE BEING AROUND US.

CLAN MAGICAL GIRL: NEED WE SAY ANYMORE?

CLAN FISH HEADS: SQUISH,SQUISH,SQUISH.......

Hi,

since herb needs a tread to be silly with here is the greatest idea for the writers. since we seem to be loosing the clans left and right over the years i thought that we should come up with some new ones to bring back the fun of the clans. YES, THIS TREAD IS VERY MUCH MEANT TO BE VERY SILLY FOR EVERYONE INCLUDEING HERB AND THE REST OF THE STAFF......

While I appreciate the intent, experience has taught me that nobody with an official developer's badge on is allowed to be silly, pretty much ever, on a public forum.

Thanks, though.

- Herb

Then it goes with the territory and can't be helped. 

But it should be said that you do an excellent job of protecting forumites from your sense of humor, sir.  :)

Clan Subterranean Fungus.

Never at the top of any of the 800 faithful's wish list of postings, Nicholas Kerensky tried to scrub this Clan from the books after realizing that he had likely made a huge mistake.  This action served as a trial run for what was to come for the other Not-Named Clan.  Their first leader, Khan Salowycious Toadstool, then raided several secret prison camps of political prisoners and early dark caste unproductives not yet eliminated by Nicholas to refill the ranks of his nearly vacated Clan.  Khan Toadstool and his new crew then disappeared, as if into the very ground.  Sneaking from world to world via dark caste transport over the next three hundred something years, Clan Subterranean Fungus has spread to every world in the Clan Homeworlds, and many more not yet plotted on charts.

OK, now for one that is not completely bizarre.

The OmniClan. 

A Clan composed of warriors from every Clan ever to exist.  Sorted/posted by units, or of mixed stars, if the case warrants.  Handy for small and assorted mini collections Brian Caches.  OmniClan units may masquerade as IS units, for example (times have to be really rough, though...) but players should be directed to clarify which Trebuchet is actually a Hellbringer, for example. 

Not to be confused with Clan Omni, which uses small 80s hatchback cars as rollerskates for their mechs.

Clan Pesetz (Russian for the artic fox). Formed from formers warriors of Clans Sea Fox and Snow Raven that managed to leave Clan space before the final destruction of the clan assets left behind from their clan's expulsions from Clan space. Started off mostly with second line warriors and scientists (that were not a part of that mutinous stupidity) and a number of civilians (as well as a complete copy of the bloodnamed warriors grafttakes from both clans). Currently wandering the deep periphery looking for a world to start over.
It's OK to disagree with me......I can't force you to be right.

If you are waiting for me to go out of my mind you will have to wait. The exits are not clearly marked.

Yay, another chance to break these out.

1. Clan Iron Butterfly- Found in the jungles of Eden, the Iron Butterfly has the colorful markings of its Terran counterparts, but sturdier wing and body segments.
 

2. Clan Platypus- Initially released on the Pentagon worlds as a joke, the hardy monotremes survived and prospered, adapting to quickly to life where water was present. Nicolas respected this adaptability, marking the ability to change with the situation as a key trait a successful warrior needed to possess. Nicolas also found the platypode's habit of constantly searching for food in even the most unfavorable conditions as a testament to the need to always gather information. The platypus was passed over in favor of the sea fox, when that predator was able to quickly check the platypode's progress into the freshwater seas of Strana Mechty.
 
3. Clan Blitz Sloth- In all respects this mammal is a carbon copy of its Terran brethren, with a few notable exceptions. The blitz sloth is capable of living in a variety of trees, having even  been found on the sturdier branches of conifers. Also, as the name implies, the blitz sloth is taken to bursts of extreme quickness. The omnivorous blitz sloth hangs casually from branches munching leaves, only to reach out with lightning speed to snag small birds, reptiles and amphibians, even smaller mammals that cross its path. Nicolas saw the patience of this hunter as a good trait for a warrior.
 
4. Clan Newt- Nicolas, doing a study of the names at the top of the list noticed something. He had two avian species, two arachnid, four reptiles, one hellion (whatever that was) and the rest mammals, NO amphibians. Nicolas briefly considered Clan Newt, before deciding equality among the animal kingdom was not a necessity.
 
5. Clan Trouser Snake- No record exists of any such creature and the scrawled name of Clan Trouser Snake was preceded by two attempts in which it was spelled incorrectly. It is thought that this option was intended as a joke.

6. Clan Incontinent Gorilla- A name come up with apparently by Andery Kerensky, during the initial trials for a spot in the 800. While watching a large scale battle, Andery noticed a group of warriors, who rushed their opponents and unleashed a furious barrage of physical attacks, including instances of attempting to twist an enemy battlemech's head off, kicking a leg clean off a mech and pummeling that very mech about the head and torso with it, numerous Death From Above attacks with varying success, and in one case what appeared to be a German Suplex applied to a Wasp by a Black Knight. Knowing that such "dishonorable" tactics would essentially remove them from consideration, Andery suggested to Nicolas he relent and place these warriors in a clan called Clan Incontinent Gorilla. When asked why that name, Andery is said have responded, "Because they are going (expletive deleted) on everyone out there."

7.Clan Orca- Impressed with the intelligence of the Dagdan sea wolf, and reminded of the Terran orca and its hunting prowess, Nicolas originally planned to name one of his clans Clan Orca. The orca's ability to tackle prey of any size or type made it an ideal totem. Nicolas changed his mind however when the first potential recruits to be assigned to this clan took the pod mentality to heart, and used concentrated fire on their opponents. The sight of a mech being blasted to scrap at the hands of alpha strikes from five different mechs, which then went on to repeat the process was jarring to Nicolas' budding mindset of honorable combat.

They're the same clan, like the Shark/Foxes; they even have redundant names.
