The incompetence of a European-led mission created sixty new martyrs for the Greater Movement. I'll pass.

Sure glad I've gotten so adept at creating half-baked characters that die before they manage to do anything significant. :derp:

Please, like you would have done any better. And I doubt you're crying any tears over the deaths of the significantly more prevalent forces of "jack booted fascist thugs."

For real doe if we could get some idea of who actually managed to make it out, that'd be awesome.

The Aldabyr swarm-AI manages to recover a few individuals, at least, back to the Outliers - Goldman-Tanboura and Sgt. Sarah both have futures, of varying kinds, in their character arcs. This method can be used to pick out anyone - with the Aldabyr casevac harness system - in particular who needs to survive, though not in any kind of numbers. Named characters, in other words. But there may have been other means of survival available beyond that, this is just what I know about as the BG-checked survival route for the two Israel-Palestinian ladies.

If my guy made it out, it'd be great plot-wise, since the intent of the Directorate was to have him die in there. Death works too, of course.

Right y'all, maybe you are aware I had some problems in the "household" so to speak which made me inactive, now I am back and I intend that to be in full force. Here is the deal though, I am stuck on the turn, its a massive effort to write and is draining me.

So I will do a few things, switch up the game and hopefully make it more interesting for y'all. Here is what is going to happen.
  • We are doing a time-jump. I have an idea of how your factions operate and what your plans are, so I want a simple, short write up on how you plan your faction to progress on Mars and in the Solar System (besides earth) as a whole. I won't write too much on it, but I will be sure to do a short write up on how it all changes. The time we are going to jump through will be 50 years, a lot can happen in 50 years and a lot will.
  • The reason I want y'all to send me plans for the Solar System, I am expanding the scope of the game, we will move on to the whole solar system not just Mars. That means we are also upping the stakes in your little cold war.
  • How am going to handle that much? Here is the thing, I am testing a new system now and I want you all to participate.
    • A day is now a year, which means that everything will be happening as close to real-time as possible, daily updates and shit.
    • While the quantity of updates increases, the amount of info you will get will decrease, to the point where each day I will just be posting about major events that happened in that year. For example "Major explosion in Russia's base in Europa" and quickly describe what is happening as if it was a live news update and that's it. I will do that every day. So expect a live stream of small events (or major if its a war going on).
    • Which means that I will give more power to players. You all will decide on everything that is internally going on in your organization. Which means I will ask you to have at least 3 major issues going on internally that you will fight to resolve. If I see you making your country too stable or overpowered or generally describing it as a Utopia, I will make sure the daily events are not very good for you.
    • no more set turns or shit like that, you want to do a spy action, just send me a short PM describing what you want to do with it and the time-frame of its implementation. You want to have a war? Describe your war-plan and I will post the effects of it.
    • This doesn't mean you have to post daily, each day will be a year, that means that you can either post proactively (as in each day) or reactively, (as in each decade, that's 10 days) or whatever time-frame is comfortable for you.
    • You are not stuck to your nation, if it falls in a civil war you can pick one of the factions or alternately change nations. Don't forget, you are role-playing the nation/faction, not the leader, role-play respectively.
    • time will be managed by me, so I can pause the game or restart it, I will have a time thread going on.
    • That means no more actions, you can do as much as you want, but that doesn't mean you can do everything, keep track of what your faction is doing and don't overextend yourself, if you do, I will make sure to punish you for it.
    • that also means that your cultural and daily life is entirely in your control, I expect hiccups, daily problems, unhappiness and general gritty shit.
  • If you want a different nation, its ok, we can re-shuffle the player positions.
  • if you wish to send me the write up on how you imagine your faction, send it with the name "Red Planet Writeup - [Your name here]
  • Even if you are not planning on sending a write up, just PM me stating so, so I can keep track on who is doing what

What will happen to the actions sent in prior to the slow down? Will these be processed or scrapped as we transition into the new system?

Scrapped, the turn is too large and unwieldy to work on as it is. They will be taken under consideration in the time-jump as I am building the world though.

Excellent, this gives me an opportunity to refine it.
