  1. Not a dire Frog? I'm kinda disappointed . . . . But Percival is cool too.
  2. Umm . . Spartan's is easier to remember, but yours has merit, too, Tim.
  3. One of the great things about Reaper is that there is no "Official paintjob". They generally feel that if a mini tells you to paint it purple, who are they to say it is supposed to be red? SOME companies will get prissy about hat kind of thing, but I've even talked to RB about Official color schemes for Warlord armies, and basically - They have a scheme they use for the box covers, but it's not official. It's just one Anne Likes. I wonder how many people actually would like Official schemes for Warlord? I don't, but I gotta wonder.
  4. I think I may enter, too. And, Ironically, I am HTML Certified, Microsoft FrontPage Certified, Photoshop Certified, and do not have my own web page. I just tell people this one's mine . . .
  5. http://www.wegotgame.net/jen/paint_review.html I'd say it's a pretty accurate review. It lives up to my exeriences with the stuff.
  6. Inquisitor Jex looks at McDaniel, his face unreadable, the usual stony look of the Malvernians' seeming even more impenetrable on him. "Yes, there is a catch. The Breeder was stolen by Mitso-Ta operatives, and they have had sufficent time to install it into a prototype new CAV - They are calling it the 'Oni' - Apparently a Terran name for a demon. you will have to fight the Oni - and retreive the breeder - intact." He pauses to look out over his city - and hands Loggerhard a dossier. "This has all the details for the demonstration Mitso-Ta is giving - a test of their new CAV. I have managed to get the contract for the demonstration. Khardullis' information network is vast." "Oh - one more thing. There is no pilot in the Oni. Apparently the Terrans are quite concerned about secondary losses, and are continutin their preoccupation with AI that led to the Psyros. The ONI is completely unmanned - which should be the key."
  7. Sorry about that. My Home PC has a Virus so I have only been able to post at work, and then only between tasks. Freefall - you will be introduced Soon. I have plans. Feel free, everyone, to PM me or to contact ReaperBryan about this game if you can;t get me. Let's just say I stay in touch with him
  8. *Looks disdainfully at the extended hand before turning away. "Gentlemen, As you know, tensions are pretty high between several of the Major UCOR's right now. Corporate espionage is at an all time high, and all signs indicate a soming war - not betwen the planetary powers, but the UCORS, felxing their muscles. They became fat and bloated form the profits of the Galaxy War, and have come to enjoy too much influence." He pauses, reaches into his Inquisitors robe, and pulls out a datapad. Ont he screen is a small Cube, with patterns etched into the surface. Gadget immediately recognises it as a Breeder, but not one he's ever seen. "Mark IV industries has recently been the victim of one such raid. A revolutionary new Breeder design was stolen from them by a rival UCOR, and we need to get it back. Luckily, Khardullis was with us, and we know who stole it, and how. We also know where the prototype is. All I need is for you to get it back. This is very urgent - The longer they have it, the more they can learn form it."
  9. IIRC Shakak got one of the B&W advance copies from Origins - Redeemable for a color HB, Right?
  10. I'll make some based on D20 Mecha. . Unless anybody has those and wants to do this. We need Dragonfly, Mastodon, Starhawk VI for PCs and others for NPC battles soon enough
  11. OMG! Skavenbabe - The resemblance is uncanny! LOL!
  12. Combat in a CAV will translate to D20 Vehicle combat rules - so it won;t be exactly like CAV combat. TL and ECM and stuff would fall under Profession/CAV Ops or Pilot/Drive(CAV NAME). Action points - start with 5. Wealth - I'll have to read up on that, but assume Treds translates to $. ANd all sorts of synergy exists between Computers/Profession CAV/Knowledge (anything military). BTW Erion -these links rock. Helps out for those w/o Modern.
  13. Denton is not exactly a suburb of Dallas - The Dallaw & Fort Worth metroplex area covers 4 Counties (Texas counties, BTW are about the sixe of Rhode Island - Is Rhode Island even big enough to BE a state?). Anyway, Dallas and Fort Worth are the respective centers of their 2 counties, and McKinneya nd Denton are the ceners of their 2. TV stations out here even say Dallas/Fort Worth/Denton/McKinney sometimes (I know KERA channel 13 does). But yeah - Suburb is close enough. We are about 50 miles form Dallas proper, but up North there is just no valid term for the urban sprawl that is north Texas. We have more real estate here than we do people to put init - so we have spread out over an area larger than some European nations.
  14. I have access to the Adobe products, also - ia am making an Excel version based on the D&D Excel versions. I will be including the classes from modern and Spycraft, and probably Future once it is available. I will make it available once complete.
  15. Ah - But he's not Designing a Templar force - It's a HM UCOR army. Perfectly Valid choice. I understand that one of the Reaper Peeps plays a Mark IV security force - They use only M4 stuff.
  16. For those without d20 rules - I will provide what I can. If I get Character concepts, I will make up what Is needed, and you guys can focus on RP.
  17. Book CAV, Second Edition, Pugh, Reaper Press, 2001. This way, we give credit where credit is due. Book D20 Modern, Wotc, 2002 ((Frosch, Nym, Spartan, Ghost, Kamut, Storminator and an Unknown man are in the room)) It is a Simple room - One desk, one chair, one window - Which overlooks the planet below. From this vantagepoint - One can see the other ships arriving and leaving from the spaceport, and the man silently watches them for a few minutes before speaking. "Welcome." The Man's back is to you, but you can tell from the hairless lumpy head that the man is Malvernian. His Robes and bearing mark him as a Malvernian Inquisitor - a fact almost unbeleivable in light of the circumstances. "You have been hired because you are the best -- and Khardullis needs the best, in this time of crisis." He turns to look at you - and you can almost sense his disdain. Clearly, even though he says you are the best, there is no masking that he had hoped the best would include fewer Terrans and Adonese. All Malvernians - that might have made him Happy. "I am Inquisitor Jex - 3rd Prefecture. If you accept my offer - You will be my elite arm - a tool of Khardullis. This bothers none of you, though you are not faithful?" He pauses. You return silence. "Very Well then. Black Inquisition - I want you to meet your crewmates. These individuals will be your primary allies in our battle. Khardullis ay guide you, though you be infidels, but these men beside you will be your lifelines." <<Introduce yourselves>> ((Note: Jeremy and Freefall are not present))
  18. OK - For those withthe D20 stuff - 4th Level, you may grandfather in 1,000 T-reds of personal equipment. I will provide a company amount for you to buy "wargear" (Guns, ammo, flak suits, etc). You just need to buy "personalized - I-am-never-without-it kind of stuff. Basically - If you buy it now - its yours. if you buy it with the funds Black Inq. supplies - It is Black Inq's - and I can take it back at the end of the mission and give you new funds. Also - you'll need Profession Pilot/WSO (Vehicle) if that applies - otherwise, spend skill points as needed to fulfill your concept. Ability Generation - Everyone uses the following ability scores, then apply the racial modifiers given by Matt above: 9,10,12,14,14,16 You may place them in any ability you want. You may multiclass freely. You may take any feat(s) necessary - Use D20 modern, DragonStar, Spycraft or D&D (although if you use D&D - let me know - I'll need to adjust some of the feats to cover modern weapons). We will be using the "Armor provides Damage Reduction AND Armor class bonus" option - So if it is +4AC flak, it gives +4 to AC AND a DR 4/-.
  19. Frosch - Terran, Dragonfly pilot, Storminator - Malvernian Dragonfly WSO (linked to Frosch) Ghost Rider - Terran Techie Kamut - Starhawk WSO (linked to Spartan) Nym - Adonese Mastodon Pilot Spartan - Terran Starhawk Pilot Jeremy/Bob - black ops guy FreeFall - Warbride of Khardullis, WSO or Pilot (Probably WSO) I just like to keep it straight in my head.
  20. Dang! I started my CAV RPG too Soon! I would love to play - but alas, with the other on my plate, this is a no go. Still, If you get fewer takersthan you want - PM me, and I will try to fit this in - It sounds awesome. While I have never played mage, I have the rulebook, and understand the game engine and setting. My preference - Son of Ether. Like I said - PM if you need me to fill a vacancy.
  21. Frosch - Terran, Dragonfly pilot, uncomfortable linked to Adon Storminator - Malvernian Dragonfly WSO (linked to Frosch) Ghost Rider - Terran Techie Kamut - Starhawk WSO (linked to Spartan) Nym - Adonese Mastodon Pilot Spartan - Terran Starhawk Pilot Jeremy - Any role you need. I got you on the list. (I need a mastodon WSO, or a black ops guy) Please PM by Saturday 7/24 about 8pm CST caharacter concepts, and we can begin character creation. I will probably not post again until then. Again - my time is limited online Also - You guys prefer for me to refer to you by board ID or by real names? I only know Frosch and Spartans' real names (and apparantly Jeremy's) - But I'm comfortable with board handles if you are.
  22. I can Take Jeremy on, too. LSH is out, so I have that spot . . Do you have character concepts - ie. Name, Race/ Class (for those without d20 modern - don;t worry, just tell me what profession your character is), Preferred CAV and Pilot/WSO (or preferred tank/gnuship/vehicle) Personality, and fears, weaknesses or dark secrets. A Techie or medic would be nice - a special ops kind of "Navy Seal" type would be good also. Not everything will be CAV on CAV here - I like to roleplay outside of battle. Now - Inquisitor Jax will give you each a signing bonus of 1,000 T-reds to buy equiment, and I will define in a future post what Military gear, CAVS/etc., you are issued.
  23. As it stands now: Frosch - Terran, Dragonfly pilot, uncomfortable linked to Adon Storminator - Malvernian Dragonfly Gunner Ghost Rider - Terran Techie LSH (maybe) - Infantry? Nym - Adonese Mastodon Pilot Spartan - Terran Starhawk Pilot Jeremy, there is still possibly room if LSH decides against joining. I may be able to help with the rulebook, if you are familiar at all with d20.
  24. Spartan - I don't have a working knowledge of Gurps, but I have run D20 since it came out . . . I would love to have you in my game though . . . Can you borrow a d20 modern book from anybody? Also - Frosch, Storminator, GhostRider, LSH(maybe), Nym . . Who am I missing from the Active Roster? Frosch - Terran, Gnuship pilot Storminator - Malvernian Gunner Ghost Rider - Terran Techie LSH (maybe) - Infantry? Nym - Unknown Mastodon Pilot . . . (?) Spartan - I'll try to work you in if I can. This pretty much fills my roster - So unless LSH or Spartan (who are maybe's) drop out or confirm, I can accept 2 Understudies (I guess that's the term). Also - I had a chat with Matt, and I got some more documents, apparently for some Beta test of an actual Reaper CAV RPG. (similar to the above stuff). I will be reading through that and figuringout how to approach characters. In the meantime - the 4 of you (6?) PM me your concept ideas. I'll PM you guys whatever Matt gave me that was relevant. I should disclaimer that MAtt said this stuff was not Final, and all of it is © Reaper. I will reference him as the sourcewhen I refer to his document, and we may become one his beta test groups. Also - my game is not official - It's just Me, even though I'm using a Reaper beta document..
