I'll fund you if you can invent some kind of infantry rifle that is a real danger to Kaiju.  Or if you can invent a suit that gives infantry the speed/armor to not all die to the first Kaiju attack.

Invent stuff that'll let me kill big monster with little mans, is what I'm saying.
How about: Making the monsters small enough to be killed by little mans?

Kaiju-Com 2. January Purchase.
« Reply #32 on: September 18, 2019, 12:30:09 am »

In order to hopefully perserve my sanity, there will be two turns per game month.  The first turn will be called "Purchase", and cover purchases, research, and construction.

The second turn will be called "Action", and cover actions performed by the players, missions against Kaiju, etc.  For mad scientists, they can do more research this turn instead.



Bidding for purchases is done by a closed bidding system, where all players submitting a bid on an item send in one bid by PM.  Highest bid wins the item.  Ties will be resolved randomly.

Reading the basic rules are fine for everyone.  But please, DO NOT READ spoilers for other players, if you are playing!

Now.. on to the actual turn.

Intelligence:
The council has made a prediction that the next Kaiju attack will occur at the end of this month.
A military contractor has announced a new type of cruise missile that will hopefully be able to defeat the next Kaiju.
Clean water has been reported to be fully available at refugee camps in India.

A lead scientist has offered services to the anti-kaiju organizations, and has agreed to work for the next three months (6 turns) for the highest bidder among them.

Black Market: (globally available)
Schematics for vehicle-mounted smoke generators are up for bid.
A large supply of depleted uranium rounds for small arms are available this month.  It's enough to equip a few infantry units for several missions.

All organizations start with two kaiju parts.  1x skin, and 1x muscle.

Kaiju come from somewhere other than Earth, maybe they can be affected by poisons/venom? I need to get more money before collecting Kaiju parts, so the parasite experiments will have to wait

Dr. Oson looks out from his high rise lobbying firm, Polus Inc. Atop the tall futuristic building sits a command dome overlooking the city, then the ocean. He takes a long drag from his e-cigar, adding a modern twist to the faint haze of the room, reminiscent a 1930's noir political drama he had seen once. It was time to get to work.

Buy: Artillery Piece (If we get funds in time)

Research: Governmental Contracts

Well, if I'm going to make a moster shrinking ray, I may as well star with a regular laser.

Infantry weapons that are a threat to Kaiju eh? That rules out anything conventional. Really much of anything that relies on brute destructive force. Humans are far too squishy to fire rail guns or anything like that. We need to get more devious. More potentially world ending.

ADD Memo for Public Release:

Here at ADD we work hard to provide consumers with the most high-quality security solutions available today with the technology of tomorrow! To that end, we have equipped a crack platoon from our private military contractor wing with heavy weapons and artillery to allow them to engage the modern threats we see on the battlefield. While other organizations have been contracted for this mission, Ares is currently leading in troop output and mobility.

Investments are being made into the "Jager" line of super-heavy tanks, starting with the procurement and construction of suitable research facilities. Blueprints for this design focus on maximizing firepower, in a concept that we describe as a "land battleship" capable of taking any land-based target. We understand investor concerns of the limited mobility of such a weapon, and have prepared a "sister ship" design in the form of a large zeppelin "Jagdhund" capable of delivering this weapon system in a timely manner. Work on said designs is not likely to begin until next quarter.

In the mean time, we work with time-proven technology that has already shown that it is capable of eliminating the enemy while being deployed swiftly. ADD has been working tirelessly to receive council approval to deploy man-portable nuclear weapons based on designs such as the famous Davy Crockett weapon system, to allow even infantry soldiers to engage enemy systems. With the comparatively low yield of smaller weaponry and ADD's citified radiation clean-up units, the damage to infrastructure should be minimized compared to missile, air, or artillery deployed models of similar nature. Current designs are working on the "Underdog-01" recoiless nuclear weapon system, to be deployed on funding and approval.

Just laying out your plans to the public like that? How... indiscreet.
Also, careful. People get awfully touchy about things like tactically deploying nuclear weapons. Even if it's for the greater good...

Public Twitter response (Corporate account)

ADD's current corporate policy assumes that contract holders will work together in the benefit of humanity, and as such releasing information for our investors is paramount. It is unlikely that the targets have any meaningful intelligence network that must be avoided. We assure our customers that our companies use of nuclear weaponry is done as safely and cleanly as possible.

Sticky note stuck to a random wall in ADD offices:

Please don't repost private emails to the world wide web. It's terrible operational security.

((Also, reminder that it's 1999 :P ))
