Meh-warriors! Who are your favorite wannabes?
« on: 03 February 2011, 04:55:45 »
I was accused the other day of becoming *shudder* conventional and of making serious reasoned remarks. That is now coming to a middle! Post your favorite ne'er-do-wells and their exploits here.

Meh-Warrior Unit: The Ghost Chickens!

A good friend started a running BT campaign with (very) limited RP-ing to no particular system about two years ago. There was born the Ghost Chickens.

We had a commander for our reinforced company who drove a Katana painted white with a big red roundel on the front and back in the shape of a target.

The G-Cs each had colorful poultry-inspired callsigns, such as Big Cluck, Horsefeathers, and so on, save for a certain Corporal Wedgie.

The unit had a number of fowl misadventures involving employers who actually wanted to kill the unit off by sending it into combat against hardened veterans. The Chickens actually survived a number of such encounters prior to being dropped into the middle of a marshaling zone for a Cappie Warrior House, and losing much of it's force, the Ghost Chickens absented their pitiful remainder to the hills, leaving the smoking wreckage of their commander behind. (The Katana suffered a head crit from behind, chewing through the cockpit). The story was left there, but perhaps the Chickens will rise again...

If you always do what you've always done, you will always get what you've always got

Bill "Big Cheese" Wisconsin and Larry "Wagons" East were the worst tag team in Solaris VII history racking up an impressive 1-34-3 record. They destroyed 54 'Mechs, the main problem is of course that 39 of them were their own. "Destroyed by Pilot Error" became their unofficial team name. :D
