  1. I'm still in Utah. I've been bouncing around the state ever since graduation. Moved three times, and might well move again in a few months. 🙂
  2. Given past experience, I'm pretty comfortable with doing a CE-era RP. I'm open to UC as well, though I don't know much of canon past Char's Counterattack.
  3. Well, hello everyone! It was a bit of a shock to see an email from Advent Destiny after all this time. I've heard of thread necromancy, but this is the first instance of forum necromancy I've heard of. Not complaining, though! 🙂 I'm DragonDaimyo, though if you've seen anyone on the internets named Hobbles or Hobbles 1822, that's my usual screen name these days. I got involved in the old Seed RPG way back in 2005, and had a blast of a time with this and other RP sites, mostly Gundam related. I had first watched Gundam Seed a few months before I found the site, and it was what got me into watching anime seriously (as opposed to whatever was on Cartoon Network). Don't watch nearly as much as I used to, but Seed still holds a special place in my heart because of it. That said, I am now very much a fan of Sword Art Online (Must. Watch. Alicization.), Attack on Titan, and a couple of others. Life itself has been crazy, though, as it's wont to be. When I started here I was studying computer science. Now, I'm a licensed CPA and I got married a year and a half ago. A lot of my gaming effort has gone into Star Wars Armada these days, though I still play some computer games like Battletech and Total War: Warhammer 2. I also play a lot of mobile games these days, with Fate Grand Order and Azur Lane being my mainstays. So yeah, really fun to see this back up and running! I'm looking forward to reconnecting with the old crowd and with some new faces! Fun times! 😃
  4. I, too, find no problems here. Looks good. [align=center]Serpent Tail[/align] [align=center][/align] Ian George Roromi, your application to join the Serpent Tail mercenary forces has been accepted. You will join with the rank of Recruit Pilot. The Serpent Tail is an old and well-known mercenary group which prides itself on its long record of excellent service to our clients. As a member of the Serpent Tail, you will be expected to contribute toward continuing this tradition. Please report to the Serpent Tail Central Command at Shesha Colony as soon as possible. When you arrive, you will be assigned to a Serpent Tail team for initial training and initiation. Good luck and fair sailings to you. ~Michael Sebastian Carlini Serpent Tail Commander Shesha Command
  5. As Kaizer noted, we had a storyline reset, so nothing big's happened quite yet. We're still in the Pre-war type phase. Orb was thrown in with NOVA along with the Kingdom of Scandanavia and USSA, so now NOVA is a major faction on par with PLANT and EA. And yes, Serpent Tail will now be a competing mercenary group with SoF (Join ST ). You should also take note of the revised Pilot Academy, which now only requires a Coliseum battle by the applicant, along with having their faction leader sponsor them, to receive a Basic Pilot License. As for current RPs, you should definitely take note of liubei's post in the News Area detailing the AF/USSA discussions, as this is the lead-in to the first storyline event. Besides that, most people are in the introduction/training phase. ZAFT in particular is preparing a wargame between the Zenastan Tai and the Okina Tai simulating a terrorist attack on Armory One. REA has liubei and Roromi doing some MS training, while Serpent Tail is getting its myriad characters together in preparation for whatever comes down the road. Those are the big ones I'm paying attention to ATM, aside from the Orb expedition, which was already mentioned.
  6. Holy smeg! It's Rob!! Sorry to hear to hear about what's going on with Keri's family, but I hope everything is starting to move into calmer waters now. As Valiant said, give her our best. At any rate, we'd love love to have you back if you've the time and inclination. As for Ray, you'd just have to modify him as per the new storyline (since he's a ZAFTie, it probably doesn't entail much, if any, effort ) and you're good to go.
  7. ((I apologize for taking so long to post here. My work's gotten fairly crazy lately. Murphy's Law has been in full effect. )) "That sounds like a plan to me. Shesha's a pretty nice place once you get settled in. Of course, I'm looking at it through a father's eyes, so you single folk might not agree." Micheal smiled, then gave a sigh that reeked of resignation. "Well, I suppose you're both dismissed. I have another appointment due to start here in a few minutes, and I think I need to head this cowboy off at the pass. I'll see you both down to the lobby." ((Don't take this as forcing you down there, but if you're heading that way then Micheal will go with you.)) Micheal was somewhat dreading this meeting. Yes, the pilot he would be talking to seemed to be skilled enough. He had some good experience in an Earth-side Serpent Tail team, but the "Other Comments" section on his evaluations were filled with... unflattering comments. His social skills needed a vast amount of improvement. Father though he may be, Micheal really didn't look forward to trying to smack the guy straight. "And it probably wouldn't do anything anyways." This could be a long day. Upon arriving in the lobby, he immediately took stock of the situation. His appointment, Isaiah Hazael, seemed to be hitting on a new arrival to the base. And he was doing a bad job of it at that. He immediately resolved to keep people in need of romantic advice as far away from this guy as possible. The girl seemed to be putting up with the advances in order to keep from making a a scene, which seemed to be somewhat successful thus far. Jon, though, had a very relieved look on his face, a look which only grew in magnitude when he saw that Carlini had come down to the lobby. "Brianna would love this scenario. She might even offer to pay for a dinner just to see how these two would react." Micheal tried to remain as unobtrusive as possible. He wanted to see how this new pilot handled the wild-looking Isaiah before he was spotted. It wouldn't be too long before they noticed him, but he wanted to put that moment off for a while. He looked forward to trying to get a read off of these two, trying to find out what made them tick.
  8. Nice to have you with us, Blake. Welcome and enjoy your stay.
  9. Maybe I'm reading it wrong, but I really don't think that canon characters rule applies to OOC, or even to some IC comments on them, since they are, in my opinion, rather infamous parts of the CE universe's history. See fireminerva's post in Face-to-Face with the oblique reference to Freedom and Justice to get my context. Even if the Martian colonies are determined to exist now (not saying they didn't, but the project might have been abandoned and the people brought back to the Earth Sphere), without GENESIS Alpha or a similar system, it would around a year to get there via conventional drive (if I remember my astronomical calculations right). And that's just one way. As such they probably wouldn't be much of a factor in the RP, especially since they probably have a small population compared to the major factions of the Earth Sphere. Although, they could be used as a plot device to funnel some new technology in after the war begins. While it's not that hard to make sure the other factions are staying true to the PEACE Treaty, it's be a lot harder to keep tabs on Martian colonies.
  10. @liubei013: Yeah, I finally finished Love Hina a couple days ago. What can I say? I'm a sucker for a happy ending, even if I did see it coming for the last 6 volumes. ^_^ Now if only Negima would come out faster. Blargh. _<" title="" /> As for the present, the first few installments of the Twilight of the Clans series have started coming in, and I've already finished Volume 1. Very good series thus far, IMO, though the fact that there's a bunch of different authors kinda shakes things up. They were really cheap, though. Most of them were only 3 USD.
  11. As already noted, you need to use the standard template. On a less monotonous note, I'll now move on. Nationality... I'm pretty darn certain there are no Martian colonies in the CE universe. Humanity remains confined to Earth Sphere (Earth, Luna, orbital colonies), so that will need to be corrected. As for your genetic enhancements, I don't *think* there'll be a problem, but you should probably run it past Valiant anyways, since its fairly nonstandard Coordinator mods.
  12. Hello there! Nice to see you've taken a liking to the site. Enjoy your stay, and feel free to ask if you have any questions.
  13. Brian watched the video played by the Chairwoman with a very morbid interest. On one hand, he had never seen such combat on film before, and he realized that if he were to watch it with an eye on the mobile suits, he might pick up some good piloting ideas. Such analysis was next to impossible at the moment, however, because of the gruesome nature of the combat. This was no training video; it was live combat between two armies where the majority of the forces fielded had only one objective: the complete destruction of all enemy military personnel and civilian populations. The pilots were out for blood, having been manipulated by national leaders and political movements behind the scenes during the years and months leading up to these fateful battles. Even simply watching video footage of the battles, he could almost feel the hatred coming from those men. It creeped him out, and not just a little bit. He had always assumed there would be another war, and had not hoped one way or another, simply accepting that as inevitable. Now, he found himself actively wishing against it. The words of the Chairwoman, however, set him more at ease. She had realized the same thing he had: that both wars had started as a result of EA aggression and supported attacks by small EA-supported nuclear equipped forces. He imagined that most people knew this in the back of their minds, but it was good to hear the Chairwoman not only acknowledge the fact, but hear that she was moving to act on this knowledge. She really was on top of keeping ZAFT an effective defense force, and that was all Brian could ask for. However, there was really little else that Brian could add to the discussion. Commander Zenastan had asked about MS and weapon selection, and that pretty much covered the only thing Brian felt he needed to know. He was curious about a few things, such as which team would play which side, but she had already stated that they wouldn't be told this until the time of the battle, which meant that Brian and his Commander would have to consider an odd viewpoint: how to successfully conduct a terrorist operation against the Armory One PLANTs. Of course, they also had to consider the opposite viewpoint, so it would mean some interesting tactical discussions. The squadron was also a concern, given its rather... unique membership, but Brian hoped that things would work out in training and on the battlefield. Even Brian was more cooperative in those environments, so he imagined the others would be, too. At least, he hoped so. As he began thinking about assault tactics, he realized that he did, in fact, have one question to ask. "Excuse me, but I'd like to ask what the ultimate objective for the mock terrorist force is going to be. We can't really plan an assault for this wargame unless we have a definitive target in mind."
