And I almost guarantee that if I do it, the site will immediately go down for maintenance xD

Well, I held off of making a new RP IntCheck thread because of the impending update/downtime... but as that hasn't happened yet, not sure whether to wait or go ahead.

I've been watchin a lot of Gundam YT vids lately, and it reminds me how much I love the Gundam meta-verse. Never run an explicitly 'Gundam' RP, but I'm thinking about it...

Well, gosh. That's a new one. Unexpected PM asking me if I was interested in an RP, and then getting shitty with me when I said I was too busy running a game to run another one.


I've been roleplaying in one form or another since the late '90's. I've played as many tabletop games as I have online ones, and the quality of both has varied wildly.
I have an active imagination, and I love immersive, descriptive roleplaying. My genres of choice are sci-fi, and modern-day (with a sci-fi twist). I like RP's that mix reality with fiction, and throw an unusual and exciting twist into an otherwise normal setting - something like Stargate SG-1 would be an example, or Battle: Los Angeles. An almost recognizable world, but with some sci-fi twists.
I'm a fan of military and action-based RP's that do this especially, and they are easily my favourite - though I rarely see any that appeal to me enough - all the military RP's are too 'plain', and anything else modern day is usually fantasy or fandom.
I have a lot of fandoms, but I don't really like fandom RP's - or at least, the ones that come up. I often find them a bit lacking in ideas, or too far away from what actually makes the thing I'm a fan of enjoyable.

I don't play in free, as I find the short posts and bad spelling and grammar infuriating.

I'm 38 years old, and I work full-time, and live in the UK, so I may not be on all the time.
I also like playing non-human characters, especially anthro ones. I dig giant robots, and I love military aircraft. I'm also a very dedicated and proud Brony and furry.

Yeah; I've had a tough week with illness and other stuff and some bad family news. Adjusting to things mostly.
And going abroad, that must have been a bit of an experience with the current situation...!

The new ideas for writing posts sound like a good idea to me as well, seems like they'd work well to me, and certainly worth a try!
Hey dude, sorry in the delay of writing back. TBH, while I'm still interested I think I gave myself too much to handle by having multiple characters on Python and it's putting me off. I get vexed by having to keep writing four or five different reactions and interactions, and jumping between tabs to keep track of things, rather than just getting a reply up. On reflection, I wish I'd just kept it to one or two characters - like Silverwind and one other - as it probably would have helped my mojo flow a bit, and keep things moving with my rate of posts D:
Still want to keep doing something, but maybe some editing on the go, or a soft reboot might be an answer? let me know what you think.
IMO, the forum seems to be slowing down and dying a lot in activity in general as of late; there's less and less posts or activity on everything, and less and less RP's coming up that I'm really interested in. And any I try to run have just withered shockingly quickly, to the point I lose interest and motivation to make any - it's a shame, as this place used to be really active, but I think the dynamic of online RP has just moved on.
I've kind of lost my own enthusiasm for it at this point, what with people dropping out and the lack of activity. Might be best just to shelve it for now.
TBH, the site as a whole just seems to be withering away these days.
@Silverwind BladeApologies for disappearing. As much as I was eager for this RP, and really enjoy the concept and the direction you're showing in the posts so far, I've lost the enthusiasm and drive I had, so I'm going to withdraw. I'm sorry if I led you on in any capacity.

That's a shame, as your posts had been great so far, as was your character. But fair enough; sad to see you go, but I know how it can be, especially with things the way they are at the moment.

If you want a mini boss pick one of the bigger suits Haman had from ZZ. If you want more up to date suits grab a few Geara Doga Customs, or some old stolen Titan Tech. Maybe of Mass Produced Quebley.

Great, thanks for those suggestions. I was already thinking of the Geara Doga for a bit later on, and a few minor alterations to it as a recurring 'grunt' enemy suit. Like the idea of stolen Titans tech as well, and the mass-produced Quebley is a good shout too - it's a very weird and cool looking suit, and would definitely make a refreshing change and a powerful adversary.
@ReedeThe23rd and @Tate - haven't heard from you both in more than a week, so I'll consider your characters out of the game if you don't reply to this round of posts, or make a post in the OOC in reply. Hopefully you're still with us!

For the rest of y'all, got another post up. Nothing terrifically interesting, but more action. Once this battle's done, we'll start getting more to the root of things - just thought a bit of action was a good start to get us fired up and going, and something for our characters to have shared. Plus, y'know... we've got these kick-ass robots, we might as well get to play with them...!

Also, I am open for suggestions for particular enemies you would like to face, if I can work them into the story and they fit into the timeline well. I realise the Gelgoog Marine's were 'antiques', but still cool suits (imo!) and seemed like a neat choice. Whatever keeps you guys excited and interested is good with me.
Despite Carter and Munch's objections that they were outdated technology, the Gelgoog's weapons-fire wasn't listening, and it struck home on the targets shot at. The bullets, rockets and beams didn't seem to care how outdated they were or not, and the damage they caused was unfortunately very up to date as infrastructure and ships took hits.
Fortunately, the Anthem mobile suit team were more-than up to the task of fighting back, and that's where their edge in technology counted. The Gelgoog pilots were good, not at all amateurs, and despite the age of their mobile suits they were wringing the best out of them and piloting them as competitively as possible - a good pilot in an old suit wasn't one to be taken lightly, and the Sleeves and their allies in the Zeon remnants had proved that short years ago. Plus it was a point; if they'd survive as long as they had, they had to be good in the first place.
Nonetheless, matched up against suits that were a grab-bag of advanced technologies, they were in for a struggle.
Carter's missile attack did the job of breaking up the formation of green-and-grey enemy machines. They - wisely - split up at the barrage of incoming missiles, but the assault was enough to wing one and outright kill a second, the Zeon-built suit exploding into a sphere of short-lived flame and trailing debris. The one winged lost a right arm, spinning in AMBAC motions to regain orientation and counter the impact - which made it a target for the mounted gun on the Re-Gz. It exploded in a violent, albeit short-lived, fireball, limbs spiralling off on their own trajectories.

Meanwhile, as the rest had scattered, they had been engaged by the rest of the unit. One singled in toward Putnam and his Jesta, opening fire as it powered toward him. The shots fired missed, but the counter-fire of missiles caught the Zeon pilot off guard. They spiralled to avoid the incoming fire, one missile catching the Gelgoog Marine's beam rifle and destroying it in a purplish explosion. The green-and-grey adversary managed to shoot down the second missile with a burst of fire from forearm machine-guns, somersaulting past the projectile as they did so, and then boosting into close range combat with a beam saber drawn, and knuckle-shield over the left forearm. It swung the saber in a vicious slice as it closed in range with the dark-coloured mobile suit, mono-eye glowing a threatening red.

Munch and his Dijeh had intercepted the most forward-running of the Gelgoogs. As his opponent fell back to avoid the melee, the Dijeh's vulcan blast played across the mobile suits' neck and lower head. The hose-like cables at the base of the Gelgoog's head were torn apart, and the mono-eye visor shattered, the special-operations mobile suit flipping end over end as the pilot tried to get a better picture of their surroundings from what little back-up sensors the Zeon suit had, leaving it vulnerable and open to attack.

Callie had not sat idle either. As soon as she'd given the attack order, she'd joined her team-mates in the charge. The S-Gundam's mighty thrusters blasting it toward the closing enemy suits. As they'd scattered to evade Carter's missile barrage, she had unlimbered the S-Gundam's beam smart-gun. As her fellow pilots closed in or opened fire respectively, she identified her own target, zeroing in through visual sensors and the radome mounted on the gun and let rip with a blast, even as the Gelgoog Marine she'd targeted unleashed a barrage of machine-gun fire toward her. Flipping and spiralling aside, she dodged or evaded the majority of the burst, as her own attack tore the Gelgoogs' left arm from its' torso, leaving molten alloy in its' wake. The pilot was a bold and brave, as well as skilled one, changing course with a series of impressive boosted manoeuvers to make his course random. He attempted to weave and bob, unleashing another blast at Callie from the machine gun from a relative upside down position, which she countered by taking some of the hits before flaring backward in space, and using the backpack-mounted beam cannons to blast the unfortunate Gelgoog to pieces.

The surviving Gelgoog had managed to get closer to the docking bay entrance, using cover from the destroyed ships and darting and lurking among civilian shipping as shields. The Ceres defensive GM-II's opened fire as it darted in, but were picked off with precise, rapid beam rifle fire, and the Gelgoog raced into the bay.
The S-Gundam turned to follow, and Callie's radio came to life with a laser transmission in the same instant.
"Captain Suthorn, the Ceres defensive militia are calling for reinforcements. The habitat inside the asteroid has been engulfed in fighting as well. This attack looks like it was a feint to draw attention and create chaos, while the real target slipped away. Nonetheless, there's fighting inside the asteroid as well, with more former Zeon mobile suits that had been hidden or smuggled aboard. You and your team are requested to enter the habitat and destroy them"
"Roger, will engage as ordered, sir".
Cursing softly, she turned her attention to the rest of her unit, engaged in battle or on the field. Youngster and Titch were still engaged, Mad Dog was doing just fine (not that she'd expected any less), and she hadn't heard from Hepner since they launched.
"Mad Dog," she called over the radio, getting a good contact with the Re-Gz Custom, "No surprise you're doing fine; good shooting. Looks like there's more trouble inside Ceres. Let's support Youngster and Titch, and then sweep into the habitat to assist, over!"
Today is moving along day, so I will be getting a post up later on - currently enjoying a family BBQ

@Silverwind Blade Approved, though I'll be shooting a message later on a few things that relate to vault 35

No worries; I deliberately left it a bit vague regarding the exact nature of the Vault as I didn't want to assume too much, and so I could change it if/where needed. Almost thought of making up another Vault or leaving which one specifically vague instead.

Will post him into the characters tab
Silver's GEAR was alive under his gloved hands, and he almost felt like it was anticipating the action as much him, by the soft hum of its' running systems. The ribbon of dawn sky called to him as the machine moved to the rear of the transport, poised on the precipice of the ramp. As the harsh buzz of the drop sounded, he pivoted the GEAR over the edge. The fox drew the knees and the arms in, somersaulting into a spin to change direction, before spreading out the arms and legs in an aerobrake. The GDFS flight packs' wings and control surfaces extended smoothly with a whine of servos lost in the whirling wind of the drop. Holographic displays through the AR interface showed him well in the pipe and dropping on course, with Python strung on like beads on a line behind him as they plunged toward the ground in a graceful glide. The pulsing thrill of adrenaline surged through the old foxes' veins as the ground loomed closer through bands of cloud.
"Negative on the redirect," Silver replied to Max as they spiralled on the glide path. "Stay the course; the packs can handle it and so can we. LZ is looking good"
The cloud engulfed the GEARs and wingpacks, buffetting them as they descended and a spray of icy rain blasted across the external cameras, plunging things into a dark mist for precious hearbeats, before the light of the sun breaking across the horizon bathed them in a radiant glow as they emerged from the underside of the wispy mass.
Blades' sensor alerts came to life a moment later, passive systems showing a small gaggle of forces emplaced at the bottom of the hillside below, in the meadow where they'd been due to land.
"Too late to change course," Silverwind growled to the others over the commo network. "They haven't targeted us yet, push our advantage and rush them!"
Shifting his orientation, Silverwind unlimbered his GEARs' rifle and let off a volley at a light vehicle, along with a three-round volley of high-explosive from the mortar on the shoulder. The steep hillside rushed up to meet him, and the fox purged the flight gear, dropping onto the earth of the hillside and skidding on the bipedal machines' heels. Python followed suit, flowing like liquid into the charge and working in a single, continuous charge, working in sync.
Burner suppressed a truck-mounted gun with a volley of fire from the rotary cannon her GEAR carried, giving Lowdown the opening to bound forward on back-mounted jets and waste a utility vehicle with a shotgun blast. As the light truck tumbled and rolled over, Red plowed past, skidding on foot mounted wheels down the slope, firing off an anti-armour missile in concert with Riser as her GEAR landed from a bounding leap from the hillside, the missile slamming into a hostile GEAR as it turned to fire, before being caught and exploding, the debris tumbling and rolling in a sheet of flame and smoke. The porcupines' auto-shotgun tore through the gun crew on an anti-air platform, which was then blitzed by anti-armour cannon fire from Burner, giving Silverwind an opening to skid past on foot-wheels and slam the pile-bunker on his GEAR's forearm into the chest of a second hostile GEAR, pinned in place by rifle and shotgun fire from Case and Lowdown.
The LZ was a mess, but Ghosts had arrived in decisive style
