• The 'Comrade' title is now available in a fetching communist red for purchase by all of you capitalists who survived the Sietch gulag during the people's revolution. And in the spirit of all communists everywhere, it was broken until the capitalist pig dogs fixed it. ;)
  • Your beloved Boot here with a confession. The Boot tangled its laces and failed to properly set up the new Comrade user title. Thanks to the kind intercession of Emperor Tippy this failure has been corrected and the new user title is now actually on sale to everybody.

    I especially appreciate that Armsmaster is particularly offended by the sheer inefficiency of Windows. This seems to be entirely in character for him. And how’s he going to know that?

    First world militaries? Probably. Everybody else is almost certainly up shit creek without a paddle, though. The hard part isn’t killing mostly squishy parahumans, it’s collecting enough information to know what to hit them with and finding them when they aren’t ready for you.

    Probably, but it could also make things worse as the Endbringer Truce collapses and there’s no longer any reason for cooperation.

    Ah, but they’re almost certainly functioning as intended. The Butcher and Eidolon’s little Endbringer issue are Administration problems. What Hosts do with their powers probably isn’t. Edit: Is anyone else looking forward to seeing what Glory Girl makes of the changes to her powerset...

    This is nothing so base as gold. Purest platinum. Or maybe Germanium if you’re a BattleTech fan. You’re a machine, LordSunhawk. Keep up the good work.

    Well, this will set a cat amongst the pigeons. Really looking forward to the chaos.

    This. The Catachan Core only has the Lostech that Catachan can produce. No HPG bits, none of the Star League terraforming or water purification technology. Not even Artemis or Streak.

    Glory Girl’s shard is a cheerleader that wants everyone to like her host as much as she does ... why does this make so much sense?

    Watched. Looking at what Wildbow did and deciding to do the exact opposite isn’t the worst writing decision.

    No problem, it’s one of the hazards of such a long-running story. Early plot points can get muddled.

    No. They became assets of the Catachan Arms Company. What everybody got was shares of the company.

    That was not at all intended. The people that stuck around were those hat had piloted Company-owned Mechs, that had lost those.

    I mean, Richthofen, but ASF. And he’s still got his and it’s getting a complementary uptech.

    Erm. There were no owner operators left in WW. Those that managed to get out with their ‘Mech intact saw the trajectory of the company and skedaddled. Those who didn’t ... well, mostly they died or were captured and ransomed. Either way, that did not particularly endear them to the company so...

    Actually, the Jaspers are the first permanent residents outside Alistair himself to own a ‘Mech on Catachan. Comet, for instance, owns enough shares in CAC that she could buy one, but hasn’t because selling her shares would be dumb. Some more are going to be awarded, but this one had to be...

    In fiction, we get so very many unrealistic relationships. One of the goals here is to show how an actual functional relationship works. You have to be able to disagree with someone without attacking them, and you have to be willing to come back afterwards and apologize. Like anything else...

    I think he focused more on the word ‘appears’ in my statement. Theoretically, hiding a research center from aerial observation isn’t too hard. Nah, but keeping manufacture of critical goods isolated is a means of control in and of itself.

    Ah, but you’re thinking in terms of a free society. Remember that Catachan was a prison planet run under the auspices of the same guy that made Stalin and Hitler both look like unambitious underachievers in the fields of oppression and mass murder.
