I dunno. It's hard to avoid noticing a red stalker. The green stalker hides better in the ranks of Community Supporterscommonly occurring flora.

Also, I am happy to not that thus far the three other folks that have accepted their invites are folks that I have never gamed with before. I love gaming with new folks!

I'm actually curious about this too... if our characters are an ex-squad, wouldn't they have some sort of Directorate ID? It seems like the squads would be licensed or registered to prove that they are who they say they are when they're sent in after immortals. (Of course, such ID would have expired as soon as they were officially disbanded, but depending on its form, they might still have the card/papers.)

Also, is there any ID we're expected to have in terms of gun licenses or equipment permits? I don't know if there are certain weapons (heavy artillery, etc) that are illegal to buy/own/use without such a permit? I want to know if there are administrivia we'll have to be concerned with for any given job, especially if it crosses borders.

Oh, and my screenname is ladyaethera on AIM/YIM, aethera.vervaine@gmail.com for GTalk, and ladyaethera@live.com for MSN. I'd be open to throwing around character ideas, just to expand them, not make decisions yet... I agree with Aeternis, it's nicer to our fellows if we wait to make decisions until the whole team is assembled.

Well, let's just say there's no license for most weapons, but some are illegal in certain areas. For instance, Lectani law declares Shredder airships illegal, but a lot of other areas don't. Some forms of "heavy artillery" as you call it (mounted weapons and handhelds that have no purpose in self-defense) are similarly illegal in certain areas. In areas where the "cops" are well funded, though, there's not too much of this because the "cops" have more than enough tech to turn your square on the combat grid into a smoking crater if they need to.

Most characters' weaponry won't even get a second glance - pistols, shotguns, and most rifles are legal almost everywhere. Carbines are restricted to military personnel in some places, but this is not common.

As for Directorate papers, that's something I will cover when we get to that point, my prior answer was general for any campaign in this setting. Directorate documentation will be an issue in the sole Prologue scene which will be interactive, and I'll make sure it's covered by then if not before. Let's just say that it won't be something you will have too much trouble with - the Directorate has a convenient way of handling this.

Soon as I get some spare time I'll put a post or two up about this in the "Tourists' Guide" so it's there for everyone to see.

Thanks for the guide...

Are we really still stuck at four players? Most distressing, folks, most distressing. I have three great character concepts I really want to elaborate on, but I've taken them as far as I care to without selecting one, and I can't pick one until we have two more players and start discussing who gets what. Aeternis, can we start talking characters and just stick it to whomever you find to play with us? (I'd say that was a rhetorical question, but I'm bored. The only active game I play in is on hold while we wait for someone, and the game I DM seems to be missing someone, too.)

I am pending check-ins for one, possibly two. I had some people declining invitations late in the process, and am still working avenues to get those filled.

Sorry for the delay, folks.

I am really tempted to go change your username to 'Supplier of Cookies' for just long enough that you notice and get amused.
