Re: Forum game: RP discussion thread
Given that Hartzaden had already issued the order in the game thread, and I thought Veers had already started the 3rd Fleet massacre RP plotline, I chose to go ahead with my post. If I have to change anything, I'll just say that Santiago jumped the gun a bit when issuing his condemnations.

Yes, I'll be talking about Hartzaden's admiral too if I make a post, but if the order is dropped, we can all just say it was down to a lack of information on the situation and this new admiral. The post will be basically Lorric's speculations anyway, which is perfectly "real" and believable I think as to what the reaction would be if this was real.

I'll get a post up tomorrow, expanding my message to all units. That should help clear things up rather than splitting the fleets in two :) And what does your fleet record look like?, much easier to borrow it than create my own :D

So, maybe the last promotion option can be chosen (AKA your admiral becomes Steele).

Re: Forum game: RP discussion thread
Well it's not over yet. You still can get something in there before the victory video, or when we invade Hierarchy Space...

You could even go back and post something from earlier turns. It's been done before by people catching up.

Anyway, I'm glad you enjoyed them. I've enjoyed making mine and reading those of others very much. They've really enhanced the experience. :)

Re: Forum game: RP discussion thread
In retrospect, the UGCR should have named their ships after prominent economists. The "John Maynard Keynes",  "Daron Acemoğlu", "John Law", ect.

The "Inevitably successful in all things" sounds way too gaudy and a little forced.

Y U NO LIKE MY NAME :(

:lol:

Actually, it's a StarControl 2 reference (namely the 1st Melnorme ship you meet) so I thought it was quite appropriate for the UGCR :)

edit: though I'll agree that it looked a little silly in the victory video, waaay too long  :lol:

I was like :confused: when I first saw it, but once niffiwan revealed where it came from it made perfect sense.

Me, I would have gone with names like "Return on Investment" and "Hostile Takeover" and the like. :)

We have a thread to create role play for the forum game here:

http://www.hard-light.net/forums/index.php?topic=85262.0

I made this thread you're in now so we'd have someplace to talk about it.

Re: Forum game: RP discussion thread
Just wanted to show you something I found months ago, I was hoping to use it in the RP:



I was going to pass it off as a Zy toy, and try to spin something about maybe they're just like us deep down or something like that. Maybe it would be taken from the wreckage of a Zy ship. But I never engaged the Zy at all, and that idea went out of the window anyway as soon as Tauri was destroyed.

Re: Forum game: RP discussion thread
Good to hear from you, Hartzaden. BTW, do you personally share your RP character's attitude on exterminating the Hierarchy forces, and would it be a personal sore spot if our characters were to have an RP disagreement over the subject?

Now that Hartzaden's RPed on the subject, does anyone here have any good ideas on how to resolve the whole "3rd Fleet Massacre" plotline, besides kinda just letting it drop? Spoon, do you have any comments?
"We have now reached the point where every goon with a grievance, every bitter bigot, merely has to place the prefix, 'I know this is not politically correct, but...' in front of the usual string of insults in order to be not just safe from criticism, but actually a card, a lad, even a hero. Conversely, to talk about poverty and inequality, to draw attention to the reality that discrimination and injustice are still facts of life, is to commit the sin of political correctness. Anti-PC has become the latest cover for creeps. It is a godsend for every curmudgeon and crank, from fascists to the merely smug."

Re: Forum game: RP discussion thread
I think we can probably let it go, since the story he's going with is that the Hertak didn't try to surrender.

Of course, he didn't offer them surrender either, but just because our roleplay said that we were making efforts to offer a surrender to the enemy / capture the enemy doesn't mean it should override his RP if you ask me. I think we've arrived at a happy medium with this, and we can end it here personally. And also, we certainly didn't make efforts to capture anyone in the final turn video either. We wiped them all out.

actualy i do have something that i did share the idea with spoon a wile ago, it all depends on if you can get classified information out of someone (Alcott) who is used to running black ops for the CRF.

I think we can probably let it go, since the story he's going with is that the Hertak didn't try to surrender.

you can play it that way if you wish, i will tell you OOC that shes NOT telling you the whole story unless she sees a reasion to.

Re: Forum game: RP discussion thread
OK, I'm game.  :cool: Continuing the 3rd Fleet Massacre plotline will give us RPers something to do until Forum Game 2, which probably won't be for quite a while, presuming that Spoon even does it at all.

Sounds interesting. I'm not sure how to go about it, but it could be worth pursuing. :)
