OOC: Something Completely Different/Red Dawn

But...Skywalker would come crawling if we manage to win. The Force my Hapian ass.

But, in light of you not wanting to loose your PCs I vote "talk to them" too.

This is definitely a "talk" situation rather than a "fight" situation. Calsera's in her fighter as a last recourse (i.e. they start shooting / launching TIEs at us). We have "talky" character in the group for a reason and should use them.

The plan to claim ignorance of the cargo might work. The big question is whether they are in communication with Mygeeto. Do we know if they're expecting a shipment from Naga?

A quick check of your dropoff coordinates will confirm that you are not setting down on Mygeeto anywhere near a known Imperial facility. it's just a clear swath of ground. Also, it is 99.9% likely that the Pacifier is in comm contact with Mygeeto and the forces in orbit.

Based on the official manifests and the location, can it reasonably be claimed to be a delivery to civilians?

Of course, everything depends heavily on how accurate the sensor scan is. :shock:

I definitely recommend we jam all long-distance comm channels.

Don't know that we can. Also, if we play inconspicuous, they'll be less suspicious than if we do something that will sugest that something's up with us.
fanchergw 2006-06-20 19:41:27
I agree with e here; doing something like that is going to look all kinds of suspicious and probably start them shooting.
Admiral Duck Sauce 2006-06-21 00:12:04
Yes, you could claim it's a civilian delivery. And yes, jamming their comm channels is something you'd want to do if you're going to start something, but don't do that until you need to.

All righty, this is starting to drag. Are you going to submit any sort of manifest? If so, is it going to be:

1. The REAL cargo - armed sedated troops, two AT-ST walkers, and the necessary maintenence equipment?
2. The cargo that the containers read as on a light-to-medium scan? Foodstuffs, mechanical parts, etc.?
3. A complete lie?

At 4:00am GMT tomorrow morning, (that's midnight on the East Coast), the Interdictor is going to engage tractor beams if there's still no activity. I like tension as much as the next guy, but this is ridiculous. :)

Send Number 2, now! Mandall would do it, but he's waiting in the cockpit of his Headhunter.

fanchergw 2006-06-22 19:36:20
Like, Mandall, Calsera cannot do much from her cockpit.

It would be really nice if people only signed up for games if they intend to post regularly.
Admiral Duck Sauce 2006-06-22 19:43:54
Well, I've been guilty of the same from time to time. I was more concerned about the lack of decision (and posting from people who were in the position to decide) rather than speed of said post.

Is anyone besides Gordon and Gatac around?

I'm here, but unfortunatlely Murdock's social skills stop at "Do this, OR DIE!"

I say we render any non-acting players to NPC status and move on with a nice power-montage.
fanchergw 2006-06-28 18:27:28
Calsera's social skills are slightly better than Murdock's. She says, "Do this, or die! Please." :lol:

I'm here. Sorry. I wasn't sure what was expected at this juncture. I suppose we land the ship under fighter cover, unload the cargo (Eeta too?), and complain about the rude neighbors in orbit?
fanchergw 2006-06-28 21:01:30
That's pretty much the idea, I think. Important to have at least one person chatting with the receiving party to make sure they don't turn on us before we leave.
Admiral Duck Sauce 2006-06-28 21:22:05
OK, cool. If you have a question about whether it's a good time to post or anything, you can just PM me or post OOC.

We'll move ahead to landing, fighter cover, and meeting the dropoff contacts.
