Congratulations Heretic!

I don't suppose there'll be any need for villain characters, yes? If so I'm willing to help out *wink wink* *nudge nudge*

Just PM me details if you need me.
Hmm. Luke, this Gundam reminds me of a puzzle.

Ok, I don't have a chance to really do anything about it right at this moment, but I guess I will take Neo-America, then. I will alter the appropriate information after I get out of class in a few hours.



If Love is the answer, could you please rephrase the question?

[blatant advertisement]Thanks, if you wanna see more of my designs just go to the Fanart section to check them out in Turinu's Mobile Suit Compendium![/blatant adverisement]

Aside from that, I've taken the place of that ugly looking Pharaoh Gundam IV with this sexy Gundam Osiris.

I just love the thing I have going with the extension cloth... just awesome.

Aside from that I've edited it a bit and given it more information and details. If anything needs to be changed or removed, just tell me and I'll try to do so without crying. D:

I didn't just mean the design. I mean that it looks like it would be a good fight if you fight against it, it has neat weapons and I love close range stuff.

I'm going to go ahead and post peripheral characters and such here.

The Neo Germany Gundam transport is a high-tech zeppelin. Here's Volkswagen's assigned "mechanical crew". They ride around earth to help Dieter with repairs... and they probably don't hurt his "Freude" level either.

Aiko Manchukuo (24, 5'4", 34B-24-34): Leader of the transport zeppelin crew and head mechanic. A serious Japanese girl, often seen in a kimono. Black hair and brown eyes.

Felica De Luca (22, 5'6", 35C-25-36): Assistant mechanic. Airheaded Italian who tends to lounge around in miniskirts and drink more than she works. Black hair and brown eyes.

Cerise Vichy (22, 5'8", 36D-24-36): The newest addition to the VW “mechanical crew” assigned to the Gundam Fight unit, Cerise is a cheery French girl that usually wears a frilly maid uniform, even when on duty. Brunette with blue eyes.

Hey, if Chibodee can get away with his own "harem" of female "protection", then I see no problem with a character in this RPG doing the same.
However it seems that Dieter's crew, may fight more amongst themselves at times, then he does in the Gundam fight. At least judgeing by these profiles that seems like it could be the case.

I'll follow Fritz's lead and do the same. The Neo Normandy Gundam transport is basically and all-terrain Viking longboat that uses high powered engines to travel over land as well as in the water, although it naturally does better in the water. Since Neo Normandy is somewhat paranoid, the ship, known as the Baldor, has several light machine guns mounted around its perimeter and three torpedo bays.

As for the support crew:

Peter Wergeland: Odel's loudmouthed development partner, Peter ususally gets his work done just so nobody will bother him about doing it. Although he is probably the hardest worker of the crew, he hates that he has so much work to do.

Margit Kielland: The Odin's chief mechanic, Margit is constantly on Odel and Peter's case about slacking off and not doing their work, even when its been done for ages. She cares more about the Gundam than the others around her, and the crew jokes that she's really a robot.

Ludvig Falkberget: A cynical middle-aged doctor, Ludvig is in charge of making sure nobody dies. He does his job well, but usually ends up dealing horrible emotional damage to his patients.

Well, I got no red flags regarding my unit from the Trinary, so I guess I'm good to go. Good luck to all who participate on the fight! 8)

And it seems like Chase is gonna have to gut it out alone here... unless I suddenly join the bandwagon and bring up a female companion for him. :P

hi2u discussion thread, might as well get some things outta the way..

-Are the fights heavily factored into the fight, or are pilot skill and MF stats different? (i.e. MF1 has offense of 15, MF2 has defense of 15.5; MF1 has no way of getting through MF2's defenses) Or are the stats just a 'general' idea of what the MS specializes in?

-If its stat based, would it be as rigid as the example I did above, or could it have some leeway? (i.e. MF1's offense has a near 50-50 chance of getting through MF2's defense, but there's little chance MF1's offense of 15 can get through MF3's defense of 25)

-Can we have a hot chick as the Gundam Fiiight referee?

-I suppose Heretic and Cardi will soon explain the stats and what they do, so I probably will edit my MS description once I find out what some of them means

-same Gundam fight rules in anime apply? If so, linky to rulz prz, i r not familiar :P

If they are the same they are as follows.
Gundamofficial.com wrote:Rules of the 13th Gundam Fight:
Article 1: A unit whose head section has been destroyed is disqualified.
Article 2: A Gundam Fighter must never aim at the cockpit of an opponent's Gundam.
Article 3: A Gundam Fighter may repair damage to his Gundam as often as he desires and move on to the championship league, as long as the head section has not been destroyed.
Article 4: A Gundam Fighter must take responsibility for protecting his own Gundam.
Article 5: A match shall only be held on a one-on-one basis.
Article 6: A Gundam Fighter shall not taint the honor and dignity of the nation he is representing.
Article 7: Earth is the ring!
Supplement to Article 1: Accidental harm inflicted on a Gundam Fighter during a match is acceptable.
Supplement to Article 7: Destruction of property on Earth due to the Gundam Fight is not considered a crime.
I suspect there will be a couple changes for our senario, but I think they should be largely the same.

Could we get a mid-fight upgrade? I don't want to use it at the very beginning, but I'd kind of like to introduce later on an optional "Beam Bagpipe" weapon for the Claymore Gundam.

Also, will the Shuffle Alliance be involved in this RPG? If so, who are the members?
Don't call it a comeback...

*waps forehead again*

That's what else I forgot, along with a description of the Luta Livre Gundam.

Do we gain experience/stat points over time or are they fixed for the rest of the game or until the halfway through the game?

Since everyone else seems to be posting other information aside from their character and mobile fighter here, I shall do the same...

-------------------------------------------------

Listed below are the descriptions and images pertaining to the crew and ship of Neo Egypt.

Khufu Class "Nu Seti"

Ship Class: Khufu Class
Ships of the Line: Nu Seti
Dimensions: Overall length unknown; overall width unknown
Weight: Overall weight unknown
Equipment and Design Features: sensors, range unknown; atmospheric flight capabilities, ocean travel capabilities
Launch Catapults: 1
Mobile Suits: Gundam Osiris (Incomplete) x 1
Crew Capacity: Unknown

Technical and Historical Notes:

A specialized ship designed specifically for the Gundam Fights, it was made sometime during the 1st Gundam Fight, but didn't finish completion until the end of the 2nd Gundam Fight. The ship is designed specifically for transportation, and has no weapons of any sort. It is capable of flight in the air or travel on the sea, and is large enough to fit a large crew and many supplies for a Gundam.

The current captain of the ship is Isis Lapis, the current Gundam Fighter's tactical advisor. Currently the ship is only manned by a handful of people, as most of the functions on the ship are automated. The ship is mainly used for transporting of goods between colonies and places on Earth during peace times, however it still functions as a trade ship during the Gundam Fights, in order to transport the pilot from place to place.

Neo Egypt Crew:

Isis Lapis Appearance

Isis Lapis, Age 19 - A young but cheerful girl who's the childhood friend and tactician of Seth. Her brilliant ideas and quirky attitude are a well needed force that drives Seth in his endeavors through the Gundam Fight. Despite her young age she has graduated from the Neo Egyptian Military as a Tactical Advisor and Operations Specialist. If need be, her skills also allow her to act as a stand-in for Seth when needed in a mobile fighter, though her skills are not as great as his. One thing she loves to do is disagree with Seth, even if he may be right, just to get some fun arguments out of him.

Isis is of fair height and weight, somewhat shorter than Seth with a petite yet strong feminine frame. Her skin tone is slightly darker than Seth's, but her eyes are just as gold and piercing, like a hawks. Her outfit consists of a loose but short tank top that she just idly wears over her basic outfit, a contorting blueish spandex jump suit which goes about down to her mid-thighs. Her steel gray boots go up to the top of her shin, with a pair of matching steel gray fingerless gloves. She wears her black hair loose, at shoulder length, and sometimes refrains from wearing her tank top and gloves. She has a thing for water, and can usually be found on the ships pool or near any lake or river in the area the ship may be in.

Allie Reyes, Age 34 - Chief mechanical engineer of the Nu Seti as well as the Gundam Osiris. Revered as one of the top minds of Neo Egypt, she has dedicated herself to the production of technology for her nation. The Gundam Osiris base design was originally her idea, and was specifically tuned for its current pilot by herself, as well as her crew of engineers. This mature, sultry woman could easily use her looks to get what she wants, however her addictive personality for anything related to technology kind of steers men away from her. Her current project is constructing the Final Form of the Osiris, which revolves around attachments to the current armor rather than permanent like the original design was supposed to be.

I was wondering If I could be a Gundam Fight official, in a mech that would watch the fight and call them if it get to close to people dying, but if I can't that would be fine too.

Any thoughts?

Well, the rules state that the cockpit can't be targeted, and I'm doubtful that rule will change so I don't think people will be dying anytime soon unless someone breaks those rules.

Though, it would be funny to see a Butler-esque mobile suit running around judging fights. XD

The problem is, how could you be judging all the fights at once? You can't be at two or more different places at once.
