Challenges and Gatherings / Re: BattleTech Long Island II
« Last post by shadhawk on Today at 01:34:04 »
The Thick wooden door opens to reveal a large well-appointed office  with light wood panels and displays of both ancient and modern weapons on the walls, along one wall is an ornately carved bar depicting ancient Norse scenes of battle, next to the  bar is a large stone fireplace sitting area with fur rugs before it and several  large sturdy wooden log arm chairs. Lying on the fur rugs are two very large wolfhounds. Across from the fireplace is a circular stone conference table that can seat 8. At the far end of the room stand two elementals flanking a large dark wood desk With several arm chairs in front of it. As the group enters several people who were seating in the chairs in front of the desk rise and the tall auburn haired woman rises from the desk and comes around to greet them. She is in an immaculate uniform of dark Blue, she moves with a surprising air of both command and grace that shows she is every bit a warrior, as she approaches them her 6 feet of height is surprising. a trained warrior can tell this is a woman who is not just a commander but a seasoned fighter and warrior in every aspect.

“Welcome to Camp Kurawa gentleman and ladies” she gives a slight bow “Always a pleasure Mr Tekada I hope al is well” she makes a very slight jester as the other officers and a civian woman step forward. “I have asked some of my staff to join us, Elena our invaluable advisor, my  Ex O- First Lieutenant Benjamin Franks and my NCO  Sargent Major Morgan Franks.” Kiah waits for Mr Tekada to make introductions.

“Major Kiah Franks this is Frederick Bosche …. ‘Duke’ as he prefers the CO of the new unit Chiji Saganami has hired.” Tekada nods to the older gentleman. “His XO Major Bee Honeycut, Molloy Malone, she will be the cultural liaison for them.” He looks to the ladies. “And their security detachment.” He looks to the other two.

Just as an example German is the most common language found on the Sarna wiki outside of English.  It is not uncommon for there to be a section that tells you what the name is in German and what it translates to.  It is kind of neat.

Sure, but 638 is still nearly an order of magnitude more backers then players i was aware of. Seeing that number made me feel kind of sad there are at Best 60 people at Operation Galahad in good years.

But to bring this post a tad more on topic. Do we have any Kind of timeline on the Alien Worlds map Pack?
Thinking about adding another map Pack to My wave 2. But i'd Like to See those before deciding between them and deserts.

“Molly is just fine, thank you …. Bee.” She nods to the older lady, “You are not Ronin. You have a master. Saganami-Sama by the old ways would be your master as you are in her employ. No you are not Samurai, retainers yes, but not Samurai. Gaijin, maybe to those who do not or chose to understand just how things are.” She looks over the cart takes one of the dishes. “Try this.” She offers the dish to Bee.  I think you will enjoy the flavors.” She then picks a couple of other dishes and offers them to the bodyguards. “As for the Kokuryu-kai, they do not truly understand what they want. They forget that under what they base the values they say they hold true many ladies were Samurai as well. Some very respected and honored like Saganami-Sama. Not many will follow the banner they offer.” She looks over the cart once more and offers a dish to Duke. “You may find this to your tastes.” She then looks around at the flight crew. “One moment please.” She walks forward and talks to the flight crew and comes back taking a couple of the dishes and drinks to the flight crew. “Now the Word of Blake is a very different thing. They offer help but at a cost that many just do not understand. When the bill comes due, it is only then that those who were …. Helped …. Understand they were duped.” She sits back down. “Please understand that most Ichizoku …. Families …. will not put their cards  on the table for all to read. Some will as they think they have the winning hand.” She looks to see that all are enjoying the dishes they have. “Now for the ones that think striking a deal with the Akuma …. Der Teufel …. They are going to pay a heavy price.”


“I will offer this. Doing something …. Wilder …. No matter what that maybe, now would not be good.” Looking over at “Duke”. “As I said I am not a military person but doing things that would have Saganami-Sama looking for you and not her other problems would not be good.”

“Molly-san. Mamonaku chakuriku shimasu. Subete o kakuho shite kudasai.” Comes from the flight deck.

“The flight crew informs me we will be landing soon.” She looks to see that all have finished what they have been given and then collects the dishes and brings back the cart back. She collects the dishes and glasses from the flight crew and puts them away.  She then sits down and buckles up.

They all talk until they land. A hover vehicle is waiting for them at the hanger. “We still have a bit of a drive even in a hover vehicle.” Tekada informs them as he opens the door to the vehicle. “It will take a little over a hour to get to Camp Kurawa.”


They will get to the main check point and the Guards will check IDs and have them escorted to Major Franks’ office.

“Mr. Tekada so good to see you again.” They duty officer gets up from behind his desk and shakes hands. “Who do you have with you?”
“This is Herr Bosche. “Duke” as he prefers to go by. Commander of the new company that was brought out here to help with our problems.” He looks to Duke. “His second in command Sho-sa .... Major Honeycut.” He looks at the older of the two ladies. “Their escort.” The two non-coms behind all. “And this young lady is Molly Malone. She will be working with ‘Duke’ and his unit just as Elena does with your unit.” He now looks at the group. “This is Chu-i …. Sorry Lieutenant Franks, Seaton Franks.”
The Lieutenant smiles. “Guten Abend and herzlich willkommen.” He nods to the group. “This way please the Major is waiting for you in her office.” They all walk down the hallway. The Lieutenant knocks on the door. “Major Der neue Befehlshaber der Einheit ist hier.” He looks at Tekada and Malone. “Herr Tekada und andere auch.”
“Senden Sei sei ein.” From the other side of the door.

Nice!

Huh.
Wouldn't have guessed that tbh.
Now i wonder.
Is that because there are so many backers in germany, or because there are even less every where else.

Edit: forgot you can just Look those numbers up.
Never expected there to be 600+ people playing BT in germany.

Just as an example German is the most common language found on the Sarna wiki outside of English.  It is not uncommon for there to be a section that tells you what the name is in German and what it translates to.  It is kind of neat.

People were doing a lot of drugs in the 60s.

Good chance someone could still kill Alric and/or Malvina before or during the fight for Terra in Trail and claim their assets.

My gut says Alaric will take the prize, though I've got this creeping fear at the back of the mind that the writers will pull some dumb switcheroo and let the Fidelis become ilclan, in which case I'd just have to nope out of this storyline.

I have nothing concrete to base this on, just my own paranoia.


The opening of TRO Jihad makes me believe there is a Falcon/Jaguar winner. The paragraph that mentions Showers, Osis, Crichell, and Chistu wouldn't seem to not be written from a Wolf ilClan point of view, even if the Loremaster is a Roshak. Maybe, and probably, this is intentionally deceptive. Maybe not.
