Wait. You mean the Gauss 'hog don't you? I was thinking machine gun. Gotta love gas powered weaponry.
Before I completely forget. Welcome new person! Good posts so far.
Not all of what I want to say, but for now that will do.
Michael. Glad to see you're interested in this here Roleplay. The highest point that can be given is this: This particular roleplay has been going on for a very long time now, with very long waits between some of the posts, while the action is fast, tough and gritty in various forms, it takes a while for it to happen. If you're patient and think you can put in a considerable amount of time in waiting, then you are one step closer to joining us.
Now that is out of the way, I will try to highlight some of the high points for you, but ultimately I don't remember everything off the top of my head.
Firstly, the mission, it is right there on the OP of both this topic and the IC topic so I will give you the barest of information: New York is attacked by a Covenant vessel, the team's objective is to assault and capture the vessel.
Unfortunately as the team descents on the target, it hypers out, throwing the team off course, scattering all members. This is when it begins to get hazy as some players either drop out, go silent, join the fray or simply wait it out.
On the ground, the self given objective as well as eventual orders are to take out the newly placed comms jammers, only one of which has been taken out thus far. Various other teams, spartans and others have been sent in to either finish the job, rescue UNSC personnel or ascertain the whereabouts of the original team.
Currently most players are spread out through mainland NYC, in various degrees of distress or...precarious positions. Most of us are either wounded, incapacitated or other.
One group, Gladiator, Val, and Patric are on Manhattan. Patric (my character) is currently incapacitated, leaving me with a lot of waiting time until we can get medical aide.
For any real specifics you will have to jump through the topic and really get that information first hand.
Hopefully this has at least informed you to some degree.
