Re: What other models should the Corporation have?

Generally when I watch batreps I kind of feel that the X'lanthos get all the fun toys, and the corp is just run and gun, which makes me feel that nobody will want to play them, because everyone will want the cool gravity manipulation. The corp need more fun toys, not necessarily dark matter stuff, ...

Re: I want to redo Suppression Fire

I agree with parker. keep the rules as they are with some additions If a model in the suppressing squad can draw LOS thru the AOE to a unit they can make take that free hit on that model. It would be a lot more like OW but it a fire lane rather than the 45 degree cone. This also makes how the suppre...

Re: What other models should the Corporation have?

This is a combination of some other people's ideas: It would be a squad of about 4 guys and there would be two types. Keep in mind that the squad may need a long coherency distance 1) radio/scouts: there would be nothing special about them in terms of weapons or gear. they will act as the "eyes" of ...

Contest: The Shield

Rain began to fall on Jake’s face as he laid face up in mud. He and the remnants of his squad were barely able to move after the devastating explosion had removed the roof of the small weather worn shack they were using as cover. Jake could see the sparse and painful movements of the people he had g...

Re: Contest: Dark Acoustics Act II Part I - "Barracuda"

Very good read if i do say so myself. I like the feel of the story as well as all the detail you have put into it as well. The world seems very real and you focus well on specific items. only side note i would have is if the Black Ops guys suit would change its designation, which makes sense, why wo...

Re: Contest: Dark Hunter

you have a very good story here. I love how focused and detailed you made everything. The twist you threw in at the end was also a pleasant surprise (from a writing perspective).

and for some reason i kept picturing GLaDOS as the head of the salvager machine :P

Re: Dark Potential Alpha Rules (Version 0.1.1, updated March 21)

Re: version 0.0.2 rules clarifications

A few things Combat Ready: Will only the models who have the enemy fall into their 90 arc be able to attack? Tactical Maneuver/ Suppressing Fire: if a model moves through the AOE, when is the attack determined? at a spot of the suppressing player's choosing? or where the model finishes its movement?...

Re: Recent video, Canada's annexation of USA - Long read.

To note on the industry of our rare materials. It's not soley Canadian government owned. A lot of US and other foreign nations own the industries so yes it is ours due to it being on our land, taxed, and such but the higher ups who command that land aren't exactly our people. hypothetically, Canada...

Re: Recent video, Canada's annexation of USA - Long read.

keep in mind that Canada is where the US imports most of its fossil fuels. if an energy crisis would ever break out the US would come to the rapid defense of Canada if anything were to happen b/c of NATO, Canada's oil reserves, and we are bffs. If the US was cut off from the rest of the world's oil ...

Re: Extreme range shooting

On the idea of a soldier knowing a shot is to far deals more with premeasuring. Also remember this game is going to use a LOT more cover than 40K so LOS is going to be a big factor

Re: A more clean NanoSec

i think this is some really good stuff. i love the artwork a lot as well. you provided a lot of good fluff that easily translates into various aspects the Corporation would have in the actual game. the only thing i think is that you could come up with a different symbol other than a cross to use in ...
