Fucking hell.

Richter, if you ever want a guest spot writing up the days' Spider Game events, you're welcome to it.

Come to think of it, that goes for anyone else not playing the game.

Definitely more fun than can be handled.  "Combat drugs"--nice touch. 

Don't look at me...I didn't invent "go pills".

:x  No.  Just...no.  :x

Our "drug free" military at work.  We gobbled those things like Pez back in 1990/91, and it makes you a pair of eyeballs and ears, not to mention a complete moral vacuum with an itchy trigger finger and a "I DON'T GIVE A FUCK! attitude.  Bikers do less crank than we did.  And then a few years back, we accidentally a bunch of Canadian troops.



So they *do* use them that way?

They try to make out like they only use it when pilots need to fly halfway around the world without crashing from fatigue.

Lying fuckers.

Wait, the government lied to you?   :lulz:

They use them for exactly the symptoms I described. 

Also, Richter's response to this is the reason I write this shit.  I don't get many return shots, but when I do, it's GOLD.

11/10.

There is nothing - NOTHING - I love more than getting stuffed in my own thread.   :lulz:

Wasn't trying to stuff.  You painted one hell of a setting, I was just having some fun with it.  

If you have the power armor rules for pathfinder, this would make a HELL of a "Space Marines by any other name" module.
Anyone ever think about how Richter inhabits the same reality as you and just scream and scream and scream, but in a good way?   :lulz:

It's cheap, and it gives you all the benefits of using children as soldiers, without the bad press that comes with it.

How's that for "Not The Future You Were Promised"?

Remind me when I need a good "purge" to re-read what you just wrote there.

Nevermind, I don't think I can ever forget.  Damn, dude.

Stuffing in this case is a GOOD thing.

And those rules are in fact on the way...After I finish LMNO's stuff.  But this series might go to graphic novel, and your part is DEFINITELY in.  Hell, if you're on board, my part stays text and yours goes to panels.

I'm pretty sure it was exactly the future I was promised.  But then, the few things I grew up with where everything turned out ok, it go much worse before it got better.

The bit we weren't promised was just how good they would get at hiding this shit.

They don't hide it.  It's just that nobody cares.

I don't have it in me to look the men in the eye anymore.  They all know why I'm not down there with them, and I'm not one of the honorable ones that just isn't any good at fighting.  No its the fear, and not even something sane like dying.  My one time down in the tunnels they had to drag me back out.  I'd gotten five feet before I froze up, convinced I couldn't move because the walls were so damn close and the cieling.. no, ask somebody else what claustrophobia is like, thinking about just gives me panic attacks.

I was pissed when they took me off combat duty, but I knew damned well they didn't have any choice.  They need men down there more than anything, and if you can't go down then there's other things that need to be done.  Me I got stuck on armor maintenance.  After I lost track of how much time I'd spent washing blood and... other things (which mercifully don't look human once the nessies are done) out of pieces of armor I started seeing getting cut as more of a blessing.  And then of course... well, once I'm done cleaning I go through bit by bit and look for bits that are still working.  A lot of the parts are amazingly durable, you can get nearly half a suit out of a wreck, as long as you replace the plates and the seals.

That's the real reason I can't look them in the eye.  Every last one of us in maintenance has gone to the boss and told him that we can't be sure if a part will hold up in combat or not, and we've all been told the same thing: We don't have the money for new parts, and the failure rate for a rebuilt suit is only one in fifteen.  After we replace the plating and the seals though, it looks brand new, and God help us, not one of us has the courage to tell the men otherwise.

I like the Luna one. She is a good one.
