Jenny. But that can be done in a post or two. Corp's going to a toy store, then to his room.

Don't worry. It will come soon, and I will tell you. As you can see by the dip in activity, things are winding down for the day. Once I start the new day, you can enter.

Sorry for double posting, but this is a good news bad news situation. Goods news is, after almost a year of searching, I’ve finally gotten my first job (it’s at a Cinemark theater, in case you were wondering)! Bad news is, this mean I might not always be able to post, and I DEFINITELY won’t be able to post this Sunday and Tuesday, since I have training for eight hours on those days. I might be able to squeeze in a post early in the morning, but I make no promises.

Yeah... I was just logging on to say we need to hurry up and finish the day. Lego, Welsh, let's please get everything done either in your next post, or in the following one. If we need to leave what happens implicit, we should.

if i had known setting up the kobor v kolt argument scene would require waiting over two weeks with nothing to do, i would have found some way to derail it.

Circumstances derailed it. It's going to have to wait until tomorrow.

Sorry, Lego. I know you were looking forward to it, but it isn't fair for the people who have ended their days. You can see if you can fit it in sometime tomorrow (in-game).

I was planning on it happening tomorrow anyways. I kinda noticed we were running out of time for this day. I’m going to do one more post, and then we’ll just have things fade to black and move to the next day. Mind you, I have work today, so I’m not sure when that post will go up, but I’ll post it when I have a chance.
EDIT: Apparently it’s now. Sorry it’s so short, but I’ve gotten the distinct impression you guys want the day to end.

Should we just have the June-Kolt conversation off-screen? If so, I think I can trigger the next day with my next post.

Right. If Buster doesn't object, than when I write later this afternoon, I'll trigger the new day. It's going to be much busier and more exciting than this one was. Hopefully with 100% fewer botched game mechanics. :roll:

EDIT: Day 4 has now officially begun, and it's starting with a bang. Kinda.

Post Re: Non HPU: Beacon Of Hope OOC
if you're wondering what im doing with june, if you recall her sheet it implies she choose not to join the others because of her breathing issues limiting what she can actually do. except she hasn't been put in a position that would make her realize that, yet.

as for what kobor's saying, think of it this way. communications and IFF don't actually NEED to be connected to everything else on a ship, but they are the only things that need wireless capability to work. if one is worried about remote hacking, the easiest and lowest tech way to prevent it, which is 100% effective, is to make sure the wireless capable bits of the system are, in no way shape or form, connected to the sensitive bits. no connected circuits, no in-ship wireless, no shared power, NOTHING. if they need to communicate you have a person relay commands.

Hey guys, just an FYI, because Jurassic World open this weekend, I have the work today, Saturday, and Sunday from twelve to eight, so if I post at all on those days, it’s either going to be very early, or very late.

It's nice to see so much activity again.

Anyway, Buster, I have a question. Since June is trying to avoid stress and bloodshed in order to prevent loosing control, if she went down there would her luck cause all of the weapons to jam nearby so that she doesn't get triggered? (pun not intended)

She's not thinking about that right now. Yesterday the need for better control was fresh in her mind, now all she's thinking about is going on an adventure.

Did anyone else read the bit about avoiding the Warlords because they’re so tough and immediately go “that’s the boss fight?”

Just in case, Corp switched out his incredibly hard knives for the unbelievably hard ones.

This is correct. The Warlord is the boss fight for characters on the ground and the Shipmaster is the boss fight for the characters in space. The Warlord is going to be more difficult by a huge margin though.

I'm still deciding on the boss mechanics and I'd like some input. I have one of two things planned. Either the Predator drone downloads the team and you guys all control the drone and fight the Warlord as a single unit, or you keep the Warlord busy in a survival fight for a specified number of turns until Titan gets there and finishes the job in the equivalent of a victory cutscene. Which of those mechanics sounds better?

Also, either way the Warlord is easily the most OP boss you will have faced yet. Just to list a couple powers I planned for the Warlord to have, he has kinetic energy absorption, fire breath, a mid-tier healing factor, super strength, super durability, and I'm toying with the idea of giving him short bursts of super speed as well.

Only problem I can see with the Predator plan is that we’re not always going to be in agreement on what to do, and that’s going to cause some problems when there’s like ten different minds in one body. Maybe do a combination of the two plans, have one guy in the Predator and the rest on foot, and they’re just trying to survive until Titan arrives. Side note, I just realized that this fight is going to end rather anticlimactically if Lewis is there, since he could throw the guy into space and be done with it. Other side note, whoever winds up in control of the Predator should probably have their powers scaled up to match, otherwise it’s going to wind up a super powered version of this comic.

I haven’t had a chance to mention this in story yet, but those got sucked out into the void when the Steelhaven traveled between dimensions. They’re currently scattered across the multiverse in various bits an pieces. A few of them might’ve survived in one piece, but they’re not going to be on the Steelhaven.

You know, based on what I know about your RP, it is possible that a piece or two would wind up there. You can feel free to put that in there, if you want.

Lewis has his power level listed as a 4. That isn't powerful enough to send something into space, let alone something as big, heavy, and strong as a Warlord. The Warlord might not even budge an inch. In addition, when the Predator copies a power it has the power of it's own reactor backing that power, and so the power itself is scaled up considerably. (or scaled down in cases like

The way I was thinking the Mindhive predator drone would work would be whenever someone makes a move, they pick up from where the last person left things. It might be difficult, but perhaps not impossible. A third option would be people take turns fighting on foot and fighting in the Predator drone.

I think I overestimated how much a four would let me do. Also, how freaking big is this guy that he wouldn’t even budge?

Post Re: Non HPU: Beacon Of Hope OOC
Well, there are a few things to keep in mind. First, Varanians never stop growing throughout their lives, so given the proper exercise, nutrition, and lifestyle they have no upper limit on how big they can get. Gadgeteer was a runt for most of his life and is still smaller than most Varanians. Warlords are the biggest and strongest Varanians of all of the army they control, and this guy commands hundreds of thousands of ships. Warlords are on average a 15-20 foot tall wall of teeth, claws, armor, and muscle. This is an especially influential warlord, so he's bigger than that.

And yes, Buster, I know about the Square Cube law. However, Varanians have an inherently stronger muscular-skeletal biology than most species due to Varan being a dense planet. They have more physical strength per square inch of muscle than species that developed on smaller worlds. On Varan, a varanian would have trouble going over 20 feet. However, on lighter planets with less gravity, they can get bigger because they aren't as heavy as they'd be on Varan.
