I say nominal 1 token for Miya, since he didn't make any mess with his Avatar.

1 or 2 tokens, at most.

Yeah, I agree with 1-2 tokens for Miyamoto, if any.

I agree with the above.

And I would like to request the 3 tokens I lent to Pancaek unless he has anything he wants to buy.

Hm, so I guess we didn't destroy the telescope in time. Do we have any idea what happened to the other "cultists"?

I am questioning to pay you or not. Because paying someone to sit up in their ivory tower, commanding the peons while they lounge in total safety, sipping mojitos doesn't seem terribly fair. It might set a bad precedent to pay the commanders even when they don't get out there and work themselves. Then again, controlling people from an ivory tower is kinda what commanders are supposed to do. Hm.

Heh, yeah, commanding is fun (it's even worse in real life, where the average footslogger gets hardly any credit while the brass run of with it). I'll be happy with what I can get.

Oh, and just to doublecheck, do I get any points to level up with?

((Though I could mention that I didn't physically join the rescue team in order to give other people a chance to play, and that I could easily have kicked of someone else to ensure own spot. I have no problem getting less than an actual participant, but I did put quite some work into the mission.))

Perhaps a future standard for "on high" commanders:  Their pay starts at standard 5 tokens, but instead of going up for success, it's docked every time someone seriously screws up under their command.  (Accidentally tasering a teammate isn't enough to be a problem.  Killing a couple civilians is a token.  Blowing up an important mission asset is two tokens.  Manip overloads or anything that is referred to as X-9 afterwards drops the pay to zero.)

To balance this out, commanders get access to the Shock Switch.

HMR stands for Hazardous Materials Requisition, not Horrible Massive Ruination, though I can understand how one could get confused.

In my opinion, RC can get 2 tokens. He actually assembled the rescue team and looked for some vets to participate. And he made a good division of the teams. Also, I agree with Toaster's proposal.

Two token for Miyamoto are good with me. He provided much needed cohesion and direction to our limbless flailing about.

No plans to do anything with them, so three tokens go to Paris, leaving me with 5

AS for RC, I think 3 or 2 tokens would be all right, in my opinion.

I believe 2-3 tokens would be adequate pay for Miya.  He did his best to keep everyone organized.

Id also say that miya should get 2-3 although what miya could possibly need to buy is beyond me

So it was like a binary search, except the question is "Has the input been brutally murdered?", and it only ever returns True.

Late but here's my list of things I did.

- Went into the restaurant.
- Got shot by a teammate and was rendered unconscious for the rest of the mission.

You'd have to ask morul. He was the one that got closest.

I like this. We can do this if the people under him are willing.

We'll give you 5 tokens, +1 extra token as apology for putting you in lerman's line of fire.
