Re: Interest Check

It's a promising setup that leaves a lot of potential for character/faction motives beyond mercs/pirates who are just in it for the money, as you as you had feared. It can also be tailored for an intimate and short-term initial game while also being flexible enough to transition into an open-ended l...

Re: TftF Discussion Thread #4

That may be hypocritical of me to say right after returning from an unannounced multi-year absence that contributed to hobbling this RPG at the 11th hour, and I know I dropped the ball in that respect, but it's the truth. Looks like you guys have already discussed some way of concluding the RPG ove...

Re: Interest Check

Yeah, that's what I mean. Aim for something short and punchy first, (re-)establish a group of regulars, get a feel for how active we are, then launch something long-term. Might even be worth it to do a little series of short-term games. Plus I got cold feet because the end of the war is already know...

Re: "Luna" Asteroids

I wonder if they'd name an asteroid "Luna [#]" if it's not in the Earth sphere, though? Pure conjecture on my part, but a name like "Luna" is obviously taken after our natural satellite, so it's probably reserved for asteroids that have been brought to the Earth sphere. Sorta a "hey, we dragged this...

Re: Interest Check

I suspect Dark Duel (hey DD, good to see you're still around :) ) is onto something similar to what I was clumsily trying to get at; using a less-developed setting gives you a lot of room to improvise with less chance of interfering with established continuity, if that's your thing (it is with TftF!...

Knowledge of the game's setting doesn't necessarily prevent people from joining; plenty of people join RPGs for full-on universes they know nothing about :) It can even engender interest in a setting, actually; my first message board RPGs were set in the Universal Century despite my not having acces...

Re: Watching the UC series for the first time

As much as I really liked Zeta, warts and all, I've never been clear on why it got a reputation as best UC series ever. I'm speaking as someone who ranks it pretty highly, too, though I prefer First Gundam. Might be a generational change in tastes, as the fans who championed Zeta as the best series ...

Re: Gundam cliches you could do without?

Plus, the (admittedly secondhand) impression I get is that the Japanese fans largely haven't had the kind of backlash against the OYW setting that the English-speaking fanbase has been having for the past however many years. I mean, not that you have to like the situation - the perceived "overcrowdi...

Re: Gundam cliches you could do without?

The only thing I begrudge the Toonami run for is giving us people who will insist on using the dub alterations and errors. Are there fans who insist on the dub names? I remember back when G Gundam was first airing in the US and some newly-minted fans used the dub names because they didn't know abou...

Re: AoZ: The Traitor to Destiny Mechanics

You can do like I do and just ignore AoZ :)

Or if you don't want to do that, you can remember that cyber newtypes like Rosamia were experimented on in Augusta (unless AoZ retcons that as well). And the Gundam Alex is still developed there. So you still get your regional pride thing.

Re: AoZ: The Traitor to Destiny Mechanics

Doesn't the ORX prefix denote an Augusta design? That's what I presumed Mark was referring to.
