  1. Don't want to derail the original conversation with negative talk, but this could be useful as providing warnings - what do you find lacking/mistrust about Vanilla PanO?

    The documents for them are in downloads now, includes a new rule for Tarik and the Khawarij Spitfire.
  3. Yep. I'm looking forward to seeing what happens with the Secret Objectives next time. I liked the idea. Achievability was the hardest part with the ones we received. The other reason I was aware of factions skipping theirs was that it just didn't go along with the objectives they had in mind already. Yep.

  4. Thank you for those numbers, @Danger Rose!

    Where do you remember seeing/hearing it?
  6. I am Naghoon E’Tarse. I work for Hassassin ETTVAK. When the approach of the EI vessel called “Raxora” was first detected, I was given a detachment of loyal soldiers, and command of one of the Sultanate’s vessels. I read through hundreds of profiles before choosing the Iskanderun, for the loyalty and grit of its crew, and their Captain. We arrived at Ilik Alfundaq, and set up base there. It was good to be reunited with the Swords of the Prophet. Most of us from Flamia were there again. I learned, sadly, that Kors had been sepsitorized on Paradiso. Bourak HHC, seeing the Wotan blockade becoming a hotzone, had charged us and the former Flamia HHC with forming a new Wotan HHC. I assumed the role of information dissemination as my former role of Press Corps Director on Flamia fit. Through continued protests about still being called “General,” General MGWright took a lead role in ensuring that power was centralized smoothly and transparently. All Sword of Allah commanders in the theatre were allowed to share their voice, and shortly an election was concluded - Sireen Barakat, Envihon, and myself were asked to lead the forced of Haqqislam in defending the Wotan gate. Leszcyzk, an Ariadnan ex-patriot, was charged with providing us with strategic council in this politically charged environment. With my esteemed fellow High Commanders, the Swords of the Prophet now stationed on Ilik, and with a direct line to retired General John Tenzer of the Flamia Campaign in the Divan Al Jund back on Bourak, it felt like we just might have a chance out here. Without a Combined Army target in normal space travel range of the blockade, our goal had to be to enhance security of our civilian population on Ilik. Orders were duly issued to all Haqqislamite commanders. We took the opportunity to observe our commanders efforts in establishing patrols, and enhancing defensive capabilities to induct new members into the Swords of the Prophet. Shortly thereafter, we received a request for aid in security searches of the La Forja Military Harbour, as political red tape and dissent among the Nomads had slowed down the Ariadnan O-12 details so much. The searches were not, however, in time to prevent saboteurs from doing irreparable damage to the station, leaving it disabled until a large construction project can be mounted - effectively never, as long as the Combined Army threat continues. Enna lillah wa enna elaihe Rajioun, and my heart is pained for those who lost, and I hope in the future that the Nomad Nation puts its citizens before its pride. I feel that the upheaval among Nomad leadership may have contributed greatly to starting a lot of the international problems that have occurred during the course of this blockade bolstering, and possibly even snowballed into the problems we’re seeing today. The internal conflict was similar to what has happened more recently among the Ariadnans - a schism occurred between a desire to defend the Human Sphere, and to take advantage of the situation in order to exercise old grudges against other human nations. As would later happen in Ariadna, a majority assembled around those preferring the path of opportunism - it seems this preference runs deep in our bloodlines. Alhamdulillah I have had the strength, and when I was weak, the support, to avoid such selfish urges. The departure of the more humanist Nomad contingent left the entire Nomad presence in something of a shambles, and contributed greatly to the difficulty in completing the securing of La Forja against Shasvastii incursion. They did not truly regain their composure until well after the Don Peyote arrived with reinforcements to replace those who refused to serve under the opportunist leadership. After the destruction of La Forja, we learned that a new civilian population had become a likely target of the Combined Army - the Baijing Orbital Consulate. As had been our consistent goal during this quiet before the storm, we moved to defend the civilian populations. Our measures at Baijing were, we consider, successful. But the threat still loomed. The Raxora would likely be here any moment. More Commanders were inducted into the Swords, and we discussed many plans in great depth. It was at this time when I encountered my greatest personal challenge. As I have said, I am a Hassassin. The desire to protect the Search for Knowledge lives deep in the very fiber of my being. The balance between that, and the Humanistic principles at the very centre of Haqqislam, has been my personal jihad in this time of war. By this time we had long been working closely with liaisons from Ariadna, and from the Tohaa. Vanther, who is a noble Tohaa, and I hope sees me as a friend to the Tohaa, as I do see him as a friend to Haqqislam, was concerned that their own, much longer conflict with the EI would lead the Raxora to target the Daraani first, and so they wished to arrange a stronger presence around the Corvette. A schism had formed, however, among the Ariadnan High Command, and a majority was forming around a desire to avenge themselves for their past conflicts with PanOceania. I am ashamed to say that I was blinded by the opportunity I saw before me. If the Raxora could be taken for Haqqislam, the Knowledge therein would be safeguarded, and available for the good of the Human Sphere. Could we trust the Hexahedron to do the same? To my great joy my dear friend Envihon lifted the veil of hubris from my eyes in my time of need. How could I have put the advancement of Haqqislam before the good of the Human Sphere? We renewed our pledges to defend Humanity, and the Swords of the Prophet led the charge into the Raxora. As the Raxora comes ever closer to the Gate, I have many questions. Will we stop it in time? What is our new place in the Human Sphere? We have seen many unexpected political shifts in this blockade. Our traditional allies in Ariadna and the Nomad Nation have preyed on our fellow humans at a time when we must all band together. And who has been more committed to the good of Humanity and the success of the blockade but PanOceania? I am further shamed for my previous doubt of the Hexahedron in this reflection, and I hope we have earned respect from PanOceania as well, perhaps leading to a new age of greater exchange between our peoples. Inshallah we will prevail through this time of darkness, and emerge as a stronger, more unified Human Sphere.
  7. Any Vanilla human can use ABH. And speculation I've been hearing is CSUs in Ramah Force possibly?
  8. Ohhh I didn't know the sniper had an X-Visor I thought Nomad MSV was being changed.
  9. I believe you and will now remember that because precision is important, but I'm having trouble thinking of when that causes a difference. What's the interaction when that comes up?
  10. They were mentioned in the first edition book, apparently, and I think Zero-G was one of their things? @Pride of Rodina was talking about it. And just to be nitpicky about something that leads to common rule confusion - repeaters don't extend ZoC, they extend Hacking Area.
  11. We may never know... I've actually never had impossible transportation/carrying issues in any of my groups, but I did once have a GM who required that the players all explain how they're carrying things.
  12. Yep. Longswords on the hip, Great swords are carried.
  13. Do you have a picture of that conversion?
  14. Same place D&D Characters keep their 10' poles.
  15. That CSU is going to be my character for every sci fi and modern RPG I play.
