    Planning stuff. Need to create more maps. Posting cycle is likely to be 'every second day' from here out. Also note - Tuesdays I'm off drawing, so they're likely to be dead-spots. Keep rollin'...

    //ooc: Well, everyone seems to want to throw a flash-bang and charge upstairs, so! Let's get to it! <I only have the fragmentation...> Mahmud/Cartman replies. <...I will watch windows, your friend is well, I can leave him a moment...> As he mentions the flashbang, Dameon sees Bundy un-hooking one from his vest. Bear is readied up, so... Taking either side of the stairs, you both quickly and quietly move up. Bear hurls the flash-bang with a cricket style overarm bowl, the Flashbang ricochets down the hall (9). It goes off hard. The blast, f
  3. Westfield shooting This kind of thing used to be a rarity...in this case, it's my local shopping centre. And recently a Brazilian "A lister party animal" was alleged to be stealing biscuits and got Tased to death. Its all lights and sirens down under at the moment, and the use of Tasers is becoming an issue - they haven't reduced violence, they don't replace the use of lethal force, and most people that get zapped by them are unarmed and not resisting arrest...violently anyway. Taser death Not sure what to make of it really.
  4. That Fusion Amp rail is great, yes! Now I'm wondering - how do you stop a stump from sweating and chafing? I'm imagining sweat wicking micro-fibres and cooling fans. Poor Shiny is going to be in desert and Mediterranean conditions for a while.
  5. Maybe that's how they'd be originally deployed - modified cargo handlers mounting vehicle weapons, doubling duty loading trucks or patrolling the perimeter... I'm honestly thinking they might be a regular Army thing, with troops that can fight dismounted, but also use the suit. Isn't that kinda what Rangers are, high grade Army? Would they like them? I have the impression the Rangers are inordinately fond of gunning stuff down, maybe HMG toting PA would suit them. In CP terms, PA is very new, and I'd expect an experimental phase, like what Air Mobile forces went through.
  6. Book, Spies for Hire. Your numbers look right. The triple cost to govt is waste enough, the commercialisation of use-of-force & interrogation techniques is even more alarming. The impact on operational security is horrifying, let alone what would result if competition to hire these services disempowered the legitimate government to the benefit of cashed up, responsibility-lite organisations. But maybe...it's cheaper long term. No pension or insurance liabilities. At least since the 70s. They get em young and train them hard. They know nothing but school, sport & obedie
  7. Would the USMC use powered armour? Imagine PA that had an operational life of 6 hours battery, was a 'super suit' no more than 8' tall (not Battletech styl cockpits - stuff you actually wear). It's proof against anything less than .50, and can use cover as well as infantry, but pack the fire power of an Apache. I'm wondering because such equipment seems fragile - for the half hour of actual combat assault, it would be Hell on Legs, but tie them up for longer and they all fall down at 6:01, and are less useful than a Hummer as cover. Which to me sounds like something SWAT w

    Bweeeeheheheheehehee... I'm resolving the man-power shortage. Blake is welcome to play as long as he likes, and in game terms, will probably attach to Team Magnet for the foreseeable future. Understaffed unit, reassignment, need help with their fashion sense...he's just what you need! Also - YAY and Hello for Blake! He is an experienced role-player with many years experience, and quite the master of English. He survived the live Babilon games, and has a good sense of the universe already. We're just going to to a bit of renovation on his character sheet, and he'l

    @ Master_Drow Dameon : //ooc: No! Sniper is on the NORTH of the building, and has tried shooting through the wall at T3 & T4, on the upper floor. He is not able to confirm kills at this moment. T2 is very much alive and a threat to Limas 2, 3, 4. Dameon lays out his plan. Bundy nods. "Right you are Brother...Frag out!" He takes a step out of cover to square up to the door, aiming the FAMAS. No-one immediately shoots back. He raises the muzzle a point. Someone yells, deeply perturbed. Triggers. Phoomp. A crash of obliterated glass and china, crumbling rubble p
  10. Okay. Normally, I hate bling on weapons. Normally. But in this case, I will make an exception.

    I like the electrical discharge idea. Taser style would definitely work, and is probably stealthy enough with the other systems to go unnoticed. The charging rail is a great idea. What kind of colour scheme? Also, you'll need to find a moment in-game to request Phil work on these things.
  12. "Since one AM. Lotta Cops when you came in. SI guys too. Musta been a helluva show." He doesn't pry. He isn't on your team. "Have to tell me about it if you're ever getting plastered in Dubai." He watches out the window a minute. "F35s." A trio cruise into view, from an awkward angle. "No fly zone along the border with Iran. They've been probing the last few weeks. Want sanctions lifted, or something. Reckon it'll cook off?" Iran has been at the brink of a new war with Iraq for decades, and has been arguing over Kurdish aspirations for statehood, claiming the Iraqi government is c
  13. You been reading Babilon? kekekeke AFAIK - the psychology of combatants is that they Fight not for ideology or money or even to protect home and family...that's incidental justification. The actual decision to go into harms way is based on trust in the immediate superiors. If your Team Leader/Captain/Imam is confident, collaborative, and competent, the 'men' will gel. Getting serious dedicated fighters to your cause in the first place is done by all the ideology/home/family stuff. Hezbollah fronts the cash to rebuild homes after a fight with Israel. Hezbollah ha
  14. @ StrayCatalyst Shiny : "Yo." Dillon raises his hand a quarter of the way to a salute. Cables scrape on the bed-frame. "That didn't take long. What bit ya?" //ooc: he will merrily chat about what caused your injury, but give you a tut-tut face if you look like you're about to specify a name. The hospital is public territory. MohZak could easily send you flowers with a mic in them. "I am seriously, deeply, strategically bored." he shuffles his stump. Snorts a laugh in memorial. Then points his left index finger at the PS Alpha. "DNI controllers." He reaches up, backw

    @ Master_Drow Dameon : <Roman to All - Vehicle Tango-1 is now un-crewed.> You catch a hint of Jarrett chuckling over TacNet. <...we are getting hot spot flashes near the North Facing windows, but aren't close enough. Bear, are there any working Drones in what's left of X-Ray? Over.> Bundy (Bear) warily steps closer to Dameon. "Dig one of the flying ball ones out. Silver case. Next to Murray. Quick!" Through the smashed glass, it's easy to recover a case. It is drilled through in two places. Cracking it open, one Drone has been obliterated, the o
  16. I think Tasers and knuckle-dusters would be the sane things to attach, for combat utility. But to go further, I keep thinking ball-joints would be great for backwards kung-fu, so you can't be put in an arm-lock...

    Would I send you crazy? Pro Attention Deficit Hyperactive Disorder? O_o ??? I'm assuming there's another meaning for that acronym I've not heard before. Then again, hyperactive militarised cyborgs would be entertaining...
  18. I reckon it'd be a great way and place to mount a laser designator, video sighting scope, or flash-light. If you want it to be a weapon hard point though, we'll have to consider how well the prosthetic is attached and what kind of recoil it could handle. That also means a specially modified weapon that goes on a rail, rather than the other way round! It would look AWESOME. What else might you want to attach to it?
  19. @ Shiny, Chuck, and Murray : A picture window, facing north, shows nothing but blue sky and the distant tip of a minaret. Tiny speck of passing air-craft glitter occasionally, banking toward BIA. Walls, tile white, anti-septic clean. The floor is vinyl tile, grey. Bed frames - tube aluminium powder coated white. Hoses and wires coil and loop over the bed-frame sides, snaking over the machine-weave blankets, slithering up into canulars and sensor induction patches. They plug into tall modular devices on the left side of Your bed, pumping measured doses of saline an

    @ Master_Drow Dameon : //ooc: This will take a First Aid roll of 15+ to stop. Dameon Rolls 20, stabilising the wound and staunching the blood loss. Dameon puts the L-Five between himself and the building full of hostiles and random innocents. Shiny is in a bad way. Pulling the driver's door open causes him to collapse, almost pouring out of the vehicle. His suit is black with blood, his right arm a stump with a river glugging out of it. Apply Pressure, says the training. Dameon applies pressure. First with a rapidly saturated hand, then with strip ties and bu

    No worries. Questions are good! Because of DNI, they are very precise. Contemporary commercial models replace lost functionality very well, have good sense feed back and good range of motion. Trans-dermal sockets are all the rage, meaning the limbs connect to bones, rather than strapping on. They are human equivalent - for Commercial Standard, you stats won't change, it's just some of your bits have a battery-life and can turn pain off. If you start modding them though... Both. Also - 12 hours *labour*. Imagine you were digging trenches and f

    No Ref penalties! Limbs are using myomar and can be faster than their bio originals - its a matter of how fast your nervous system delivers instructions. They use D cells - the cells you get at a servo will give you 6 hours labour, the proper Medical grade ones give you 12 hours labour. You can sit still or power down to conserve. I first ran Babilon a few years ago, live game. Visereal was there for a few ops, as Phill. Jarrett, Bundy & Bowen were their characters. Mahmud was a farmer who saved their butts during a particularly ferocious opening battle - a desali

    Okay. Y'all can see just how spectacular that was. There's gibs everywhere. If you have tactical questions, let's have 'em...we'll clean this op up in a post or two. Do not despair of the Game! I've been brainstorming on this for a week since the Holy Oracular Dice of Malek spoke their dark designs. I've got a new plan, which will serve to communicate the world and its technological advances very clearly. Yes, this means Cyber. Limited, but First Gen "Human Equivalent" bionic prosthetics are in your near futures. So yes, there will be hospital, but not too much o

    5. X-Ray Team are inbound to clean-house, secure wounded, and cover the front of Lima's house. 6. Lima's front door is right before Dameon, kicked open, a hollow dark tunnel leading inside. Dameon's glasses are back up, Thermo is an option.

    //ooc : Timer starts now... 00:00:00 Lima whimpers. And hides, shrinking down into his seat. @ All : The L-Five comes about, the rear wheels rotating to soak up the skid and put the blunt-end on target. Murray articulately describes his feelings. "HOLY MOTHERFU..." BRTRTRTRTRT, filling the L-Five with the ear-breaking jackhammer-vs-steel-spike rattle of the M240B. Chuck shouts something drowned out by the fire, triggers the Dillon. It adds to the track a screeching VREEEET and the staccato sparkling of brass shells fountaining across the roof and pouring
