Military Carry-All/Light

The MCA/L is a common logistic vehicle, typically used to quickly airlift and move materials and hardware. These vehicles have replaced helicopters, and can be equipped with ducted fans (helocraft), jump jet engines, or A-pods and wings. These are used for small scale operations or insertions where something as large as a mech drop capable carry-all would be excessive, or too easy of a target. MAC/Ls are very frequently used for infantry and power infantry operations. Mecha and other large vehicles use conventional carry-alls.

The strength of the MCA/L is it's versatility and cost. The vehicle has a very similar mission profile to that of helicopters in support and non-combat roles. They can lift heavy loads, don't require runways, and can hover in place as needed.

The weakness of the MCA/L is it's light armor and lack of weaponry. They are fragile and easily shot down if not protected. Go to Comment

The Mwenye Junta

Dominating a large swath of eastern Africa, the Mwenye junta is a loose coalition of warlords. The Silver is the nominal leader of the Junta, being the most charismatic and experienced. The Silver is supported by The Halfcourt and the Doctor El, having historical ties to him. The Bebop and Rocksteady are also allies, but are not considered reliable to the Junta. Go to Comment

I didn't even watch the Garfield one. Or most of the new X-Men variations. Watched Captain America Winter whatever and that was good, but couldn't keep track and lost interest. Go to Comment

To give a little depth to that being burnt out on supers movies, which second spiderman movie are you talking about, the 2nd Spiderman with Andrew Garfield, or the 2nd Spiderman with Tobey Mcguire?

Ok aside from my pithy/useless comment above...

I disagree with your take, aside from Joker/Harley/Amanda Waller. Agree on those three takes. Harley killed it and was having fun filming this. Jared Leto great actor. Amanda Waller great character and great acting.

I couldn't stand will smith in this, and thought the whole movie was rushed and music-video styled...intro, intro, intro, scene, scene, scene, quip, quip, quip, bam, bam, bam approach. Do I give a crap about any character? Nope. Why? Too many of them.

And for the love of all that is holy...Killer Croc?? Captain Boomerang??!! Spare me. Geez, they could have taken some creative license with these characters and changed them to something not laughable.

They race by any sort of exposition on the characters we are supposed to care about, then suddenly in Act 3, the gang refers to themselves as a "family". Wait, wut? When did that happen? Lol

Sure, it may have been better than most DC flicks, (including bat vs supe) but that is setting the bar low.

10 pounds of sausage in a 5 pound bag.

Now Deadpool, there was an entertaining clever flick!

I haven't seen the movie and am not particularly interested when I saw the movie poster for it at the tram stop outside my office so I can't really give a vote to this. But as an article, this works. It's got a strong narrative voice and the 7 things form a single coherent opinion about the movie. Go to Comment

This is a neat one. I like the torture fueled technologies...

well I am not literally fond of or excited by the idea, but I like seeing sadistic evil finally having practical applications...

well not that I think we should find practical uses for sadism-seriously Scras all praise for this may put me on a watch list.

There are all also some really great pieces of descriptive writing in here as well. Example: "The walls are metal that sweats, there are damp pools, there are scuttling things, and the constant grind of hum of alien machinery"

Animism and tribalism are also interesting concepts that present one with something that could be expanded upon.

It took me a couple of tries to get this, the structure is a little clunky and it lacks a human touch aka lacks characters or personality. It would be enhanced by more detailed ethnographies of the notable tribes, subcultures or some notable figures.

Mag-rail
Items  (Transports)   (Campaign Defining)
Scrasamax's comment on 2016-08-28 05:28 PM
Landrace Mag-Rails are among the most common and important vehicles on the Silk Road and across the Wastelands. They are plentiful, easy to repair, and have the strength and endurance to carry an abundant amount of cargo. Fitting this:

7 Landraces

1. The Cargo Hauler - the fastest hunk of junk in the Wasteland. Cargo hauler landraces can carry up to 40 tons of cargo, an amount equivalent to a typical tractor trailer load. The vehicles are relatively fast, able to outpace anything bound to legs or wheels. These are the meat and potatoes of the Silk Road, and can be found hauling everything from water to illegal merchandise.

2. The People Mover - similar to the cargo hauler, the people mover is a wasteland bus, moving 20+ people at a time in varying degrees of discomfort. The imagry of the rural bus, carrying people, mail, and livestock is very fitting to the roll of the People Mover landrace. They are much more time sensitive, and thus are typically built for speed. They are frequently in head to head confrontations with cargo haulers.

3. The Pleasure Sled - not everything carried in a landrace is a good, some things are a service. The pleasure sled is a high speed brothel, moving from location to location, partly to avoid bandits, part to avoid dealing with permanent locations, and part because it can be important to move on after a landrace load of prostitutes pickpocket half the people in a village and give the other half STDs.

4. The Itinerant Merchant - similar to the cargo hauler, the IM is a dealer in goods and services, and his landrace is a junkshop with legs. The IM most commonly works with junkers and salvagers, trading parts in a seemingly mysterious system of trade. The merchant is a clocksmith or has the services of one, and a fixer for the wastelands, connecting people with the things they need.

5. The Family Camper - the landrace is an extended family domicile with mobility. These are typically older and in lower quality condition, as they have been passed down from family to family. The campers are the nomads of the Wastelands, moving to follow opportunities and greener pastures.

6. The Expedited - the personal vehicles of wasteland warlords, expedited are high speed landraces with investments in armor and firepower, ensuring that anything they can't outrun, they can outgun. These are the personal vehicles of these bosses. Most smugglers and high end runners have landraces that would fit into the expedited category. They have hidden compartments, concealed weaponry, and plenty of tricks, traps, and aces up their sleeves.

7. The Gunship - gunships are the landraces of mercenaries and they carry soldiers and their wargear as well as ample weapons and firepower. Gunships are relatively expensive and only the most successful mercenaries, townships, raiders, and bosses can afford to keep one of these in operation. The main users of Gunships are so called 'trade companies' that are little more than heavily armed gangs that control important sections of the Silk Road, or have dominated access to local resources.
