But we're investigating on foot. I don't think they have simulations for that. :P

Old Lineup
Slaver Depot - Mae, Ty and Alek
Weapons Depot - Jax, Otsoa and Vaylen
Spice Depot - Jaclen, Kraven and Jess
Recon Group - To'ran and Valexia

New Lineup
Slaver Depot - Jax, Mae, and Ty
Weapons Depot - Otsoa, Alek, and Jaclen
Spice Depot - Vaylen, Jess, and Iris
Recon Group - To'ran, Valexia, and Tak

This keeps the majority of the respective flights intact, which is probably how this would have been broken up in a real world setting. Missions broken down from the platoon to the squad level. Each mission has a separate Flight leader in it, and the Recon group has that Green Squad wannabe To'rizzle in it.

Let me know your thoughts. I'll work on the general aspects of the briefing post sometime today and hopefully by the weekend, we're ready to go.

If Jag was annoyed your home would have already been raided and pillaged.

Just a heads up, my availability will be spotty for the next week, we're packing up to leave Germany today, will be outprocessing/de-mobilizing for next week or so. I *should* be able to post but if anything comes up pressing feel free to move Otsoa along.

Ok, now that we've got to this part, I'll post, after the holiday, the initial frackus with the impromptu scavenger fight.

As for the individual missions. Write those as you guys want, the object is to gain information, and destroy the operation/base of your individual missions, as you all deem fit. The only cravat to each story is that you get a piece of the clue that will lead your teams to the Asteroid Field, where we will have the BIG fight.

I'm not sure if it was explicitly mentioned but I think he's human. He's got a lanky thinness to him but he's been working out and supposedly has a well developed chest and arms. Also, he has a biomechanical leg from the knee down on his right leg.

Sorry, Shaggy, missed your post there.

Yes, he's human, biomechanical leg. He's pretty muscular and well groomed, with an ego to match. He is on the tall side, probably not as good looking as he thinks, but not ugly, and mostly suffers from a lack of maturity. The sort of people who is good at what he does and is determined to be the best, but has not really had to feel the sting of defeat and deal with that yet.


Mir, as far as the missions go, are these just flyby recon missions or are they being provided with the resources to perform more of an involved infiltration mission?

So um, two things. I think we established somewhere that Green Squadron is the only squadron but what other resources do we have? Like do we have troop carriers and the people to man them at all? If we're going with an A-Team sort of feel it doesn't seem very likely that we do. :?

Second thing is, are the scavengers still showing up? I almost have a post written for that (in my head, I haven't put it to paper yet >.> ).

The A-Team aspect would not, at this junction, be the feel right now, I think. I guess the feel right now would be A-Team before they left, an actual military unit.

Once we leave the Republic, that's when it's more fly by the seat of our pants, spare parts are hard to come by, make do with what we can, kind of thing.

Isn't that what we already did, though? This first mission is our first without the support of the Republic, right? Unless the resistance is supporting us, I guess. >.>

I only ask because I didn't think we were going to have very many resources for taking out these depots. Like each team of three would have to figure out the monumental task of taking out their objective alone.
