...I'm a little confused, to be honest.

Would it be all right with you if we simplified this down?  4-minute capacity of continuous use, needs 15 minute to charge a minute of use?  If all 4 minutes are used in a row, locked 60-minute recharge?

My apologies.  I tend to sometimes over-analyze things like this.  >.>

So, let's simplify things:

Energy Garrott has four energy cells, two in each handle.  Four minutes of use max, 1 minute per cell.  Cells cannot be charged individually and activating the recharge program means the Garrott cannot be used for 60 minutes.  Because cells cannot be charged individually, energy efficiency decreases with each drained cell until the energy output can be evened out, so each cell drains just slightly faster than the previous one unless the Garrott is given a 15 minute recycle period that allows the remaining cells to adjust to the energy output needed.

Does that make sense?  Or am I making everyone confused?  >_>

I don't see the storytelling benefit of making this so complicated.

True.  I just overcomplicate things like that.  Just feel free to toss that idea aside, GMC, and stick with the 4 minute power limit and 60 minute recharge.

Sorry for all of that!   :-[

Saria, now that the Scimitar is approved, may I humbly request a blurb on the front page to show how cool my character is, too?
Ah, honestly, I've been holding off doing anything to that post because we might be creating a whole new thread.

Ok, edited again and changes done.

I think Saigo and Suki could be natural allies with Elijah. Which is great :)

yeah I think so too, they are very similar, Asian mercenaries since very young

Alrighty then, let's take a look at this:
Okay, Saigo looks good.
Okay, Suki looks good too.  I do hope her need for those drugs doesn't cause too many problems as I doubt that dosage will last for even half the journey.

Thanks, for a minute I felt that Suki was an anime cliche

Perhaps just call it 'Strategic Repulsers' instead and remove the 'Propellers?'  The propellers make it sound like a plane.  Other than that, I like it.

Well about that I decided to leave it as "strategic propulsors and repulsors" just to establish that the propulsors take the mecha forward and the repulsors can take it backwards. A bit awkward, but hope you don't mind.

Okay, well, Saria did the right thing, kicking me in the rear so I can see that waiting on our last player is doing more harm than good.  So, if everyone is satisfied with their characters, mechs, and the other character sheets, I guess we're ready to begin.  I know you all have been frustrated at my slowness regarding this amazing game with awesome writers, but I believe we're ready to get this trek going!

So, to recap, our lineup is:

1 Stealthy, ninja-mech
1 Highly adaptable, but somewhat limited speedster
1 Electronic goldmine of a mech that's frailer than it looks
1 very adaptable, but extremely underarmed mech
1 Battle Armor that looks weaker than it actually is
1 Massive fortress of a mech
1 Powerful, yet experimental speedster mech
1 Deadly mech piloted my a merc

I think this dysfunctional group of mechs should do decently well, no?   XD

EDIT:  We're at least ready to create an OOC and get the IC worked out.  May not be ready to start a posting parade, but we're pretty darn close!

I'll need to find weapons as quickly as possible to put in that thing, as well as more medicine along the way...   This ought to be interesting.

The Scimitar ia gonna suck in a parade.

Even if he's in front, he's invisible. :). For a couple of minutes, anyway.

--------

So is there any kind of timetable on how the OOC and IC and such are going to be set up?

Saria and I are working on it.  She's offline as of this post, but we're hoping to at least get the OOC up soon.  We're getting some formatting down so everything looks neat and sparkly, not unlike a freshly polished mech fresh off the line.  :)

Ah, Saria's a busy bee!

Serpy, all character profiles are ready, and about a third of the mech profiles - those will be finished tonight.

The day has finally come, everyone!

The OOC is now open!  Please keep your arms and legs inside the vehicle at all times.  Thank you all so much for your patience!  We hope to have the IC thread open soon enough.

*Grabs some seaweed and offers to trade some cupcakes for it*  Thanks, GMC!  I'll use this as a celebration banner for the OOC's opening!

Hey folks, I am likewise still here.  I just recovered my main system from a massive hardware failure.  Everything SEEMS to be working alright...


I see the IC thread, and I am brainstorming now...

Glad you're still with us, Ralhend!

Although if your prototype hard-drive thingy is crashing NOW, that does not bode well for your mech!  :P
