@Paragon, looks like an interesting character, is there any particular reason why Darius has cybernetic arms? Was it an accident or maybe a birth defect (unlikely given the tech, but possible). Or perhaps it was a personal choice for some reason or other or maybe he was brought up on one of the more technophilic worlds of the Commonwealth?

Or have you just been playing too much Deus Ex of late? ;)

@Bunnyboy, good work, the pics are a great idea, I'd copy it myself were I any good a drawing :roll:

Neat character Paragon!

@ TheUnforsaken: At least he is not a full-conversion Borg with a berserker body and 'Panzer Kunst' martial arts... lol!

I'm going to wait one more day ... and if Gudo does not post... I'll move the story along and post something.

Also... I don't know if anyone remembers but Martenzo set up his game threat - Tempest in a unique way.

viewtopic.php?f=4&t=39

Where there is a spoiler link to the three parts to his story thread... OOC talk, IC posts and Character Roster... could we do the same for this game? I really miss how useful that was!

An IC post? I thought we were waiting for Bunny and Fuse to get together first. I guess I'll start drafting one...

Interesting character there Paragon. Tell me, are those metal arms basically just replacement arms, or do they have some nifty trick to them? Also, have you decided start with the main group or if you want to run into it?



Man, Mord was cool. For the few posts I got to do as him anyways.

I think I should establish now that Moira does not speak trade, and any trade uttered at this time is going to go right over her emotionally destroyed and completely disturbed head. (Harold however speaks both English and trade. I'll specify which he's speaking when relevant.)

Post Re: [RP] Incursion (OOC)
Glad everyone seems to like it.

@ The Unforsaken: I have been playing far too much Deus Ex. My apartment was out of food for a whole day despite the grocery store being ten minutes away because there just all of this Deus Ex to be done. Let's say he lost his arms in an accident when he was young ("and that, boys and girls, is why you don't dick around in an abadoned factory), and the way his world advocates handling that sort of thing is replacement with "superior" parts.

@bunnyboy: I originally envisioned them being able to turn into fast precise surgical tools (like the robot secretary hands). I guess we can argue that that is sort of shown through his high medical skill. They haven't been encased in artificial flesh or anything, so he wears a lot of long sleeves and gloves. The arms are also why he has super strength. I'll do my best to keep toned down in the story, since according to the rules that lets him lift one ton, and that is just a tiny bit ridiculous.

@Gudo: The neat trick will be that he keeps people from dying from bullet wounds, and that he can punch people really, really hard. Non-lethally, of course.
The main group is the one with you and sunphoenix, right? I guess it's fine if I join that one. When should I post for there?

@sunphoenix, links to the RP are now in my sig. Which reminds me...I really should update the character post now we have some characters. :)

@Paragon, lol, yes, I remember doing that on a few occasions with one game or another. As far as the 'super strength' goes for Darius' arms, well, they may be strong but the rest of him isn't. He'd be really good at climbing or tightening/untightening bolts or other things he can grasp etc, but once he needs more than his arms he'd be stuck with his biological bits and their limitations.

Character post (3rd post on the first page of this thread) has been updated. I actually did some work...who'd have thunk it? ;)

@Paragon, I made Darius' color orange (FF8000) but you can change it to whatever you want.

I'm going to be frank, I have no idea what values I'm supposed to be using, so I'm kind of just leaving this combat for Unforsaken to resolve if that's alright.

Post Re: [RP] Incursion (OOC)
Ok, unless you come up against a badass NPC or are hugely outnumbered I don't really plan on using the defined combat system (as sunphoenix posted it earlier), in a little fight like is going on now you can simply use narrative.

For instance, right now Nelodez is on the ground having jumped out of cover and her line of fire is currently blocked by the invader she killed. Harry just fired his special gun at the other guy, but the extreme close range means that the round won't have built up enough speed to cause a fatal wound: It would, however, distract the invader, and probably long enough for Nelodez to clear her line of fire and kill him.

Something like that is fine, talk with each other to work it all out if you need to.

Post Re: [RP] Incursion (OOC)
@ Paragon: Ok. How about this intro...

The 'Doc' was with a large group of survivors. Originally Golden Hair and Garnet were part of a that same larger group of survivors, but for safety sake and for lack of resources it was decided to split the group into smaller cells avoid easy detection and cut down on the size of the safe-house needed to conceal a large group of survivors all at once - Very hard to hide! 'Doc' went with the one of the smaller cell groups and Golden Hair and Garnet went with another. The survivor cells tried to keep in loose contact to support each other - hoping to outlast the alien occupation... figuring it would not be long for Loroi Union or TCN forces to send a fleet to deal with the invaders and reclaim this world.

Well, that was like 1 month ago and nothing has changed... in fact the invaders have become more numerous! Well 'Doc', being the humanitarian type, has been traveling about the city trying to help the injured and sick of the various survivor cells he has been able to locate.

Well recently he has been coming across the safe houses of several survivor cells all destroyed obviously from the invaders finding them and killing everyone there... more than just occupation... but a systematic genocide of all non-invader species. About two days ago he returned to his safe-house from another dead cell's hideout only to find his cells hideout had fallen to the same fate! Now with no safe place of his own anymore he goes to one of the hideouts he knows has not been hit yet to warn them and to find refuge himself.

That hideout is ours... Golden Hair and Garnet.

Basically you just knock on our door seeking safety... we already know you... so no awkward introductions. You have a good reason to be seeking us and it gets you immediately into the story! :)

Great idea! I'll begin working on something, and then I'll post it as soon as the current combat is resolved.

No need for wait/stalling. Combat is over and we are leaving the place, which is good moment to look on another place (in movies).

@Paragon, but others too. You are maybe interested this.

Now...{ahem}, some... uncomfortable... or at least 'sensitive' questions...

Image

Uploaded with ImageShack.us

...What, pray-tell, did Beryl mean by... "It is... Necessary for them. For their physical and mental Well-being..."? Is she actually referring to a racial gender-based medical 'need' or is this an example of 'Reverse-Chauvinism'? [ie. "A woman's not a woman, until she has a man in her bed..."] in this case a male needs "taking care of" so he must service women on some regular basis... yadda yadda yadda... {insert stereo-typical phrase of choice.}

I'm mostly of the opinion that Maiannon being a half-breed may possibly be able to resist/control any urges or is unaffected by any real biological 'need' if it is a actual Loroi male physiological fact.

But it would make for some... {ahem} interesting RP if Maiannon goes all "Spock", Amok Time! once and a while due to still being strongly Loroi in his half-blood nature. But if we wish to just... 'gloss-over' this, I'm also cool with that.

Though, I'll admit... I'm really curious as to the answer if Arioch would chime in... but perhaps that is a spoiler to the series. In which case... I'd rather not know and just be amused when the topic is broached with innocent Alex.

@Bunny: By the way...nice video. Miss{?} Amiee Mullins is indeed a truly amazing and beautiful woman!

It may comes from having this Y, when he don't have broblems or from having not enough of X when he is screwed or screwing all the others.
Assuming that he is XY and not of LoLXxY

Well, when you consider how the Loroi have been engineered in this aspect (8 females to 1 male, males mate very frequently), I would bet that there's an actual physical need instead of some sort of 'Reverse-Chauvinism'. Also, why would Beryl bring it up if it was just a social thing. My bet would be constantly getting off causes a the males to form a chemical dependency on whatever the Loroi form of dopamine is (in fact, a few humans actually do get addicted to dopamine IRL)... Whatever those problems that Beryl is talking about is withdraw.

If you want to gloss over it, that would be fine with me (just say that due to his half human side, he doesn't get addicted to dopamine.) You could always role-play some (please) implied "Amok Time". A possible better solution would be to have Maiannon addicted, but just shooting up dopamine/trying to ween himself off. If the drugs ever run out or there's some interesting opportunity, then we get to role play some withdraw/amok.

I'll go ahead and ask Airoch about it in the questions thread.

On a completely un-related note, I just found out I'll be making a small trip. Gonna go spend some time with my kids on the long weekend :) I should be back late Monday/early Tuesday.

Post Re: [RP] Incursion (OOC)
Hmmm... put in that light... the 1 to 8 female male gender distribution...does indeed indicate something quite different from humaniti is going on in the Loroi biology and gametes.

So I can indeed see your point on the matter... a lot would have to be...different between their hormonal balance than humans...to say the least.

Ok. I'll have Maiannon react occassional to the natural biological needs of his Loroi gender. Now don't worry... it will be in good taste and will be less frequent than a full-blooded Loroi male.
It will manifest as a slowing growing edginess and perhaps slowly building fatigue or nervous energy... a little like the much acclaimed 'Pan Far' of the Vulcans... but more like the 'Young Spock' in STAR TREK: The Journey Home. Sort of manifesting as a slowly building fever and a rise in his body temperature as the hormonal build up and withdraw from the dopamine or whatever passes for endorphins in Loroi - slowly degrade his motor skills, attention span and make his Sanzai abilities erratic. Not life threatening, mind you, but putting him a weakened state if left... un-handled progresses to an almost constant state of fatigue, tension and angry mood shifts with manic behavior.

It would purely be a RP matter... which the Loroi females around him will quickly realize why he seems so easily fatigued and frustrated. When he occasionally seems to act like he is without fear or overly overconfident of his abilities when he is in a manic swing of mood.

I'm open to suggestions on the matter as well...

Well, my post is up. I didn't see how I could go any farther without taking control of someone else's character.
If Maiannon isn't feeling well, might I suggest he consult a physician?

So do any of our characters know each other very well? If so, how well?

Post Re: [RP] Incursion (OOC)
@ Paragon: Sorry fella...been busy all day. I'm posting now...

As for knowing each other... you might not know Maiannon personally... but you likely know 'of' him. He is a documented anomaly... A Human/Loroi crossbreed... half human and half Loroi, something most medical experts say is impossible! You know that his father is human, a TCN Marine by all accounts... but he was raised by his Teidar mother. A fairly respected and influential Loroi woman. Maiannon is a Loroi citizen and the Loroi Union has steadfastly refused to allow any 'official' extensive testing or examination of Maiannon by TCN experts. Though... among the Loroi Union Maiannon's importance and uniqueness are downplayed and treated as an 'odity' and an almost 'outsider' among his own people. He is one of the Very Few males to serve in any capacity in the Loroi Military as a low-ranking diplomat.

The 'Doc' has met the lad once or twice very briefly before... but only since the invasion among the survivors. From the brief meetings the 'Doc' found the lad... for he is indeed very young, brave, forthright, concerned about all sentient beings, gentle and strong-willed. His Sanzai-Photokinetic powers are nothing short miraculous, but he is also a minor psychic healer. A VERY handsome lad with long golden Hair and startling emerald Eyes - similar to his fathers if records are correct. His skin seems a pale Caucasian, also like his father, but has very subtle bluish highlight tones to his palor. He is taller than a Loroi male but still average by human standards at 5'10" and his ears are pointed but not as obviously so like a Loroi... think Vulcan-like.

I cannot speak for Garnet... other than to say you know that Maiannon and Garnet started working closely together to protect and provide for the survivors when their numbers started to grow larger.

Nice posts there. For future reference, I've got no problem with other people making Garnet spout off a line or two or three. I can roll with it, unless it's horribly out of character ("KILL ALL HUMANS! KILL ALL HUMANS!... Except for Fry.") I've made a whopping one post with her, so I know there's not much to go off yet. We'll remedy that soon!

As far as the relationship between our characters... You're human right? Then you probably wouldn't have met Garnet before the incursion. Unless you were stationed at the Loroi military depot where she worked for some strange reason ;p So you'd probably just know her as another survivor (but one who makes use of implants!)

@Sun: Did you see Arioch's answer to the "physical and mental well-being" question? Bad news, you can't solve your problems with pills. Good news, you can fap the issue away! >_> Oh.... That's a bad joke :(

Well, I reek of campfire, I gotta clean up.
