Sign up is now closed - it's up to you guys as the PCs to let other folks join if they want to, though I think most people are in right now anyway.
I am no longer legitimately considering leaving this forum

Yeah, I shoulda chimed in here with the OK. Until we leave port, joining is alright, and NoCam came up with a good way to have avoided the original "intro". Afterwards, it becomes pretty hard to introduce a new character. Not that it matters, I think pretty much everyone is present now.

Statwise, sheet looks fine NoCam. If you can get some backstory and gear up, that would be good, otherwise we can get launched and started without it.

For my knowledge when I update in a bit - is one of the PC's navigating there, or are you leaving it up to the crew?
Gone. Cheers guys.

I can get a basic version of te equipment up, but I've not gotten the backstory 100% done yet.

There's not a huge rush on that part. Are you able to post today, or are you computer free till tomorrow? I ask because Vulnus and Snow are on the way to the sickbay and all. Wanna know if we should put that off a bit.
Gone. Cheers guys.

Looks good. I'm gonna assume your power armour has some trouble fitting into the tighter spots of the ship, thus the more mobile other armour (which is fine and not killable). Also, you have 5 extra points left if you want them.

I should really go back and re-add up everyone else's points too.

The power armour was supposed to be for either the unlikely case of zero-g combat, or planet side exploration, but that works too.

Sorry, that's kinda what I was implying - with the jump pack (or similar), it would be uncomfortably awkward on the ship. Kinda figured it would be for the likely case of zero-g combat or other places where there's a little more room. Should have been more clear.
Gone. Cheers guys.

Yeah he isn't wearing it 24/7, only before and in combat. He wears normal clothes :/

EDIT: I allocated the points!

Blitz I'm like 96% sure Apathetic was talking about Camille's power armour.
And also the points thing.

All good. I assumed yours was a lighter version. They have the first and second highest armour values in the game, accordingly. We're all on the same page, I'm just a bit confusing.

Fake Edit: Or will. I haven't quite gotten there yet.
Gone. Cheers guys.
