  1. Would be great if you could share the source materials. I got some but mainly to look at the graphics. I can't read Japanese so translations of the text would be great too. I haven't looked at scanlations but they'll definitely be reliable sources we can cite. The Gundam Wiki is terrible but kudos to those who moved the content before they got wiped off Wikipedia, but it created a mess that is really hard to deal with while new series kept on heaping stuff on.
  2. Hi @wikikomoto, welcome to Advent Destiny! Thanks for your feedback and sharing. MechaBay isn't a wiki. It's a database that we're trying to build for the mecha community. To give you some background, let me tell you a bit about how the site came about. We were running the Gundam Wiki but there were many problems with the site due to the mass migration of articles from Wikipedia to save the content from Wikipedia's purging of non-encyclopaedic content, which included most Gundam articles. The lack of consistency in the articles (the Manual of Style wasn't followed strictly), and the ads by Fan
  3. Adding the cast list. Help me out with the AEUG list @Roromi
  4. Hiro fought the urge to hold Grimsdottir back to get an answer out of the AEUG captain. He knew better than to stop vital back up that Thrace needed then. The Minovsky particles had made them a blind sitting duck and they needed more eyes in the field. As the white GM got ready to launch, he headed back to the cockpit. The crew eyed him as he stepped in. With Grimsdottir gone, Hiro was the commanding officer on his own ship once again. “What’s the status, Athena?” He stood behind Valerii and leaned forward to peer at her screen over her shoulder. The fragrance of her air calmed him d
  5. Hiro was surprised to run into Grimsdottir in the corridor. They stepped into the hangar and he replied, “My suit isn’t ready Captain. I’ll be out as soon as I can.” His heart sank at the sight of the mobile suits in the hangar bay. Under normal circumstances, a well-trained team would have already launched during the time it took for him to wake up and get to the hangar bay. “I was under the impression that your pilots were on standby, Captain.” Hiro had more to say but he held his tongue and tried to suppress the nagging worry he had for Thrace. It was normal to lose contact with s
  6. The alarms blared. Roused from his sleep, Hiro Kusanagi struggled to wake up. The alarms continued their wailing. An almost instinctive sense of urgency jolted him awake as he sat up in his bed and opened his eyes. The dimmed lights in the room and the red flashes of the alarms told him at once that the ship was in battle. Jumping out of bed, Hiro thumbed the com link on the wall to hail the cockpit. Ronald Boone’s face appeared almost immediately. “Apollo.” “Status.” Hiro put on his combat suit with practiced discipline. “We lost contact with Starbuck. No sign of the enemy bu

    Group purchase

    I've come across these kits so far: PG Unicorn PG Phenex PG Strike These are at around 40% cheaper than Amazon prices, excluding shipping. So I'll have to work out how much they would cost with shipping. I've also come across MG but I didn't really pay attention since I'm personally looking for PG kits. Let me know if you are interested in certain MG kits. To move this forward, I'll need to know what's the average you pay for MG and PG kit where you are, or where you usually buy from. Then we can see if this is a feasible thing to try.

    Introduce yourself!

    Welcome to Advent Destiny. Would love to explore how a Wing RP would develop.
  9. Hiro nodded. “Understood, Captain. I just want to make sure we’re on the same page. Our goals are aligned and my team will do our utmost to make them happen.” He turned and left the room, heading straight to his team’s bunker. Thrace and Valerii were working out. “Where’s Augur?” “Went to grab some food,” came Thrace’s curt reply followed by a grunt as she lifted the weights again. Valerii was lying on the ground after finishing a set of crunches. “Care to join us, Apollo?” Hiro shook his head. “Not now. I’m going to head out. The Captain has agreed to sending a scout ahead. Thi
  10. Hiro looked at the AEUG captain. “I believe we have enough pilots and mobile suits between the two teams to maintain four-hour shifts for the rest of our journey to the *Rose*.” Hiro and Kamea Thrace were the main pilots for the Draconis Fury. As the backup pilot, Grace Valerii would rotate between the two mobile suits when either of them were off duty. This covered twelve hours. The AEUG had four mobile suits and a cycle would see them clear another sixteen hours. If they maintained their current speed, they were less than 80 hours from the *Rose*. That would be less than three shif
  11. Standing to take the Captain’s proffered hand, Hiro knew from the conversation that Grimsdottir was indeed a soldier accustomed to the military ways. However, they were on a mercenary ship sneaking around in a smuggling run. His team had more experience in this type of operations. He planned to have a longer discussion with the Captain but the brief exchange has told him that he had to step in and take a more proactive role in leading the mission. *From the way the AEUG is handling the mission, they probably don’t even know what’s in the cargo themselves. Or are we just a diversion
  12. “Thank you for your concern, Captain. However, your apologies are completely unwarranted as much as appreciate your gesture,” Hiro said. “We don’t have a habit of debriefs unless circumstances require us to do so. In this case, I believe there’s an outstanding point in the report I sent you.” Grimsdottir was going to speak but Hiro raised a finger and went on. “My team has been treated well. Perhaps our reputation precedes us. In any case, the Draconis Fury gets the job done, no questions asked. I understand the gravity of this mission when I signed my team up for this. For the AEUG to us
  13. Hiro pressed the bell at the entrance of Grimsdottir’s office and the metal door slid open. As he walked into the office, he saw the captain’s head buried in a pile of papers on his desk. He had been surprised when he saw the AEUG personnel accustomed to using physical reports. Perhaps it was due the nature of their line of work that the Draconis Fury and the rest of the Galleon Combine operated using data pads and preferred to view their reports digitally on screens. Leaving a paper trail was risky business for mercenaries, and the often had to destroy data in short notice. Choosin
  14. Alyssa entered the strategy room and the low voices of discussion ceased immediately. She wore her black Zeon uniform that bore the crest of House Arano emblazoned on the left collar. The V-shaped neckline dived deep enough to just give a hint of her cleavage, with the wings of the Zeon emblem hugging the the curves of her breasts. Sitting herself at the head of the large rectangular table in the middle of the room, she scanned the room with a quick glance. Lieutenant Alexander Mori had gathered half a dozen of her senior officers for the meeting. She stated, “I believe you’ve all read th
  15. There was a persistent bug with character creation. That's finally been resolved and you should be able to create your characters again. Leave a comment below if you still have issues. I'm organising the existing characters. If you have unapproved characters, post the character names here so I can have them approved.
