Continuing in my new desire to have a Titans character, how about instead making him Terrace Manosk's twin brother? I couldn't help but remember that the Gryps conflict is essentially a civil war, though both sides function as formal armies, just like the American Civil War (1860-65). AFAIK, that war was full of instances of brothers being on opposing sides of the war. Thoughts?

An identical twin is taking the 'brother against brother' concept a bit too far.

Why don't you just make a Titan character who comes from a similar background and circumstances as Terrace Manosk to show how their choices have put them on opposite sides?

I want to know if the Hamburg team would pass New Yark before reaching Chuikov. And also, who we will encounter first? It should be the nearest fight, if any between New Yark and Chuikov. If we just selected random fights, that would be a little bit off since we could pass friendly without giving any help.

I know this fight has been confusing at times without a map. I'll try to make sure I make one like I've been doing for every battle I can in the future.

The New Yark is not in any danger at this point (other than from taking fire from Titan ships), and is further from the Chuikov than the Hamburg, so you should get to the Chuikov with no ships between you.

I realized that I wasn't too clear about who Jacob was shooting at in my post. So, for clarity's sake he fired the three bazooka rounds at Warren.
Yep...That's Texas in a nutshell. Why just say "f**k you" when you can put it on a flag?

I got the Hamburg team to play an escort for Caroline back to Chuikov. I hope that won't be a problem (she's too far, etc.).

lans*, actually Caroline is right by the Chuikov. She bumped into it's hull and is now drifting. But she might need cover or assistance getting to the hanger.

Caroline opened her eyes and saw red.
Her last memory was blundering into the Chuikov's hull. She'd possibly blacked out then and was lucky not to have become some opportunistic Titan's free kill.

Now she had to get herself together and with her fuel running low, Caroline feathered her verniers to drift her back to the Chuikov, hopefully without attracting enemy attention.

Uh, ORegan, did you like forget to put "OOC" or something in your latest RP?
ORegan wrote:"well isn't that nice. %@*&. Now shoot this @*&#-ER!!" Jason yelled into the Commline. "Yes sir. Firing away." Patrick replied as his Marasai's verniers carried him closer to his partner and the enemy. Fulfilling the order to shoot at the enemy, he fired is beam rifle four times, and also unleashed a large volley of ineffective vulcan fire. Of course, it'd be pretty hard to hit the Rick Dias since the was Reddo described it, Ian is using the side of the ship as cover.
After the part about vulcan fire, it seems to shift out of character (Not that it really makes sense to me, anyway). I think it means "since the way Reddo described it, Ian is using the side of the ship as cover", (Which, BTW, is incorrect; Ian is moving downwards and away from the ship at top speed, so I'm not sure who he'd be using it as cover from...), but I want to make sure...

That's the narrator(me) speaking, so it's gonna be out of character. :P

But it sounds like you're using the ship to take fire from others, but whatever, I'll edit it and lessen the chance of damaging the Kirov with friend;y fire. :P

Nope, Ian's just trying to get away, while also firing back at Jason and Leandro (And it's not like he can use the ship as a shield to block the shots of either anyway :P ).

Ah, my bad. I didn't realize she's so close to the ship. I'll get Emington to watch her back for a few moment and realize she's close enough to the ship and will do fine on her on.

@Red. Hey, Red. Are you sure I haven't earn that "Reddo" thingy? Oh well, I'll just call you Red or mcred23 for now. 8)

Yes, I am sure. And doubting me isn't going to help you earn that right. :twisted:

The Hamburg Team just joined the fray, targeting the Buxoro Team. Hope it will be an interesting fight.

Now you mention it, IIRC I also saw the plamo being named Hi-Zack instead of Hizack. As for me, I'm more accustomed to use the word "Hizack" than “Hi-Zack”; because it's easier to type and my Zeta sub also use the same word for the unit.

Okay, guys, I think I want to make a new Titan character with a personal reality filter attached. I'll be basing him off of Cybaster's Emily Stormgunner character from the TARRRPG in the General RPG section. He'll be obsessed with Dungeons and Dragons to a point similar to Emily. I wanna hear your thoughts before I write up his sign-up profile.
Oh holy Heironeous no. o_o

Emily fits in Gundam Party and other SRW RPGs as initially comic relief but pretty much nowhere else, and the only way in TftF someone like Emily would fit is if he/she was an Artificial Newtype from Murasame or Augusta --- which since the GMs have a monopoly on, would never happen. The Artificial Newtypes really are that insane where an obsession with applying D&D to real life would be plausible, indeed. (Yes, I'm talking to you, Rosamia! Where the hell did you get being Camille's brother from, anyway? >_<x)

(Her devotion to D&D and d20 also goes somewhere in Gundam Party and gives her a kind of power --- it just doesn't play the large role it potentially develops to until the later-to-last chapters.)

TftF is serious, strict Gryps Era worldsetting, through and through, so noooooooooooooo. I don't blame you, though; Picard Kamek (on the Titans side) and Ramon Sumitani (on the AEUG side) both act like Emily do to an extent, but are fixated on fictional pilot prowess, and they're both almost as crazy as Ems is. Kamek actually thinks he's Amuro bloody Ray! :P Too bad they can't alter reality like Morpheus can...
Don't throw the baton, you jacka**!!!

I hope it will be interesting as well. However tomorrow I'm leaving for four days to go camping in the Adirondack preserve of New York State and won't be able to post again till Saturday the earliest (unless there's a response tonight, then I can respond to that before leaving). Hopfully my absence won't delay our battle too much, but if you need to move things along I'd understand if you called a hit after 48 hrs, just don't make it fatal :?

I've always seen it spelt Hi-Zack, until recent that is. Who knows, maybe Bandai updated the spelling again after the movies came out.
