MechaSportSim

Take any conventional sport, add giant mecha, host in an online forum/stadium, play ball.

Full Contact football in unarmed mecha?
What about mecha based martial arts? this is all online, none of its real, so it can be anything

Incoming mechwarriors have several options for housing, with the most common choice being the mechadrome barracks, where they are less than five minutes walk from their machines. It's close, but the dorm like rooms are cramped, but a step up from the eight to a room bunks where the clones, marines, and other on duty personnel sleep. There are perks to piloting the big iron. The second option is to apply for a military funded residence in Arco San Louis, which adds a personal commute of 20 to 45 minutes depending on light rail traffic in the arcology. Mechwarriors tend to get minor celebrity treatment in the arco, which can be good and can be bad, just depending on the personality of the mechwarrior in question. Playboys, roughly handsome pilots, and such tend to enjoy private quarters for romantic trysts with groupies, while those who play the bad boy trouble maker card generally stay on base because there are way fewer people who want to teach that punk mechwarrior a lesson. The final and discouraged option is getting a residence in the favelas around the city. Contrary to documentaries about how bad all of the favelas are, the favelas, especially those closest to the arco, are closer to vertical suburbs than Dreddian slum fortresses.

I'll go with arco for both my family and for me then, though I am abit drawn to the favelas just because it sounds kinda latin, so that would be fitting. Maybe my family could live out there... Mmmm yeah, I'll live in the arco with my boyfriend because of the short commute, and family out in the favelas. As long as it's upper tier suburbs.

Going to go with Favela myself, since it would be what his parents least approved of.

Throwing a note up here before I go to work, don't have enough time to elaborate on it, but I am going to try and cover this tomorrow morning-ish but I cannot make promises. I have a Dr.s appointment in the AM (test results and review, nothing serious and for those concerned, everything is going very well) and then a jaunt over to the inlaws.

Favelas should be graded, with something like a 1A graded area effectively being the same as living in the arco, and some 1A areas might actually be nicer than living in an arco, if the arco in question might be an older model, or have some inconvenient quirks.

On down the list through the middle pay grades

Down to the 5F grade favelas which are functionally urban warzones with little or no police presence, intermittent utilities, and prevailing poverty and a strong criminal element.

Would also likely need to toss in a grading system comparable for seacologies, and more importantly, the cesspits and hives of scum and villainy that are the geofronts

Just so we're clear, we just leave secondary characters as flavour then? At the moment it feels a bit like you missed what I posted, Scras.
But if it's your preference to focus on the mech stuff and keep the background characters as flavour, I'm fine with that as long as I know that's what we're doing.

No, I want to bring some of that in, thank you for the reminder.

Waiting for you to frame my arrival Scras, or give me the go ahead to intro myself into Maxine's bar scene, whichever works for you.

(also if Derek happens to call and ask for back up for his meeting, Marsha would drop whatever she's doing to give him support.)

Apologies, I have been swamped by RL, but take heart, I've been in discussion with someone well versed in the Cosmic Era over what adventures to throw your way

RL has relented.

Got hit by a car, but sounds way worse than it actually was, had an epic weekend, and getting back into the swing of things.

Let's hope there is some steam left in the engine

Glad to hear it turned out okay Scras, not sure where to go with my char until the party scene, unless Maxine invited Marsha along on her investigation?

Ah, wasn't sure if it would warrant much, but okay. Changed my post, consider yourself invited and briefed.

On a side note Scaz, just a reminder I decided back during the beginnign of the game for me low dice rolls = good ;)

http://strolen.com/guild/index.php/topic,6908.msg83031.html#msg83031

(Just figured I'd put out a friendly reminder of that given the encryption deciphering roll was an 8 and the symbol analysis a 36, which didn't seem to synch up with the dismal results in code cracking ;) Not that I;m asking for any GM ret cons, the current result is more plot driving anyway  :thumbup: )

Do we roll for stuff? I've yet to roll for anything, I've just left it up to Scras whether something works. But if he wants me dead though, THEN I would like a roll or three. :P

The chip is an antique, and that's why it hasn't been touched by the hacking and decryption programs. It's trying to plug a 5 1/4 floppy into a Mac Air.

Fun plot arc btw, it's fun to see the game world from outside the cockpit in all it's dubious mysteries and splendors.  8)

It's easy in the cockpit, the LAI picks out what is a hostile and what is a friendly, there are very few vagaries, few moral conundrums. Its just blinking lights and the reassuring hum of the reactor wrapped in tons of nigh impervious armor.

Outside the titans, things get muddy and murky.

Been about 10 days since any activity in the game, just checking to see if it's on hold for a while or if it's been unexpectedly cancelled?

On hold, I plan on getting something moving in it again, I have gotten really stressed out at work and it's murdered my creativity. This is some of the most stubborn writer's block I've had in a long time.
