Currently getting practical experience in writing Horatio. I plan on starting something Iron Diademlike in the distant future. There's so many things I was unhappy about with how ID turned out that it's not going to be restarted in its current format, but I would like to invite all players back for the game whenever it happens to eventually run.
Apologies, again.

I'm pretty intrigued. I wouldn't have thought a ship cake could find such employment.

Yeah, I'm going to do a reveal-all... probably this evening, with all PMs and whatnot.
Still waiting.

When are you going to get the time to write Horatio when these linens need to be pressed and folded on the double, hop hop?

You know, it's fucking uncanny how many times people scream that Jim is out to get them and has rallied the town to destroy them, like he's the head of some damn conspiracy theory or something.  I've learned to recognize this as something I call "The Jimbot Fallacy".

WHY IS NO ONE ELSE AS EXCITED ABOUT THIS AS I AM
It might be tougher for them to be excited about your work without seeing it.

Oh, that's actually really cool. I had no idea what you meant earlier, but- that's neat!

Yeah, it was actually the deciding factor in deciding to scrap Iron Diadem. I know so much more now about how to write a character like Horatio and his position realistically that it seems absurd to keep writing him in the same way. THERE IS SO MUCH FUCKING DRAMA, OH MY GOD. It's such a ridiculous job. But surprisingly fun :-[
Err, to be honest for me he was still an 'incomplete' character o_o
Yeah you noted a bit of his past and a bit on his profession but that isn't at all enough to judge him by. It was obvious from the start that he was a holistic character...pretty much like how Alfred develops in the Batman series...
We get to know him more and more everytime--and sure, the artist or creator sees a TON more than we do but that's my idea about it.
...
He was really cool in the current Iron Diadem and still had a lot more to him than what we're seeing. :-\

Been working on a thing for a while now. The balance is tough to hash out, but it may end up being a coherent system. Open to any criticisms, suggestions, etc.

Holy crap did I not know this thread existed.
For those of you who don't know, greetings from an American in Belarus.

Scripten, that seems awfully cheesy, to the degree that it's the good kind. :p
When I thought of a BattleTech/MechWarrior mafia game, I was expecting there to be "missions" every day where some of the lancemates could use abilities, sabotage etc.
The way you're doing it is interesting. It seems like the balancing will be more or less a statistical chore, though - one of my IRL BYOR's was balanced in a similar way to armor values, with people having up to 5 armor.

Also, why would anyone take a light 'mech?
