Just a quick question. Does it matter if I build light or dark grey Deutsches Reich mechs? What color is more "preferred"?

I don't think either one is "preferred", per say, but maybe you could look up what exact color the Germans used, so as to be historically accurate. At the same time, either one works. That's what I'd say.

Would you be willing to allow LDD creations in this group? I know most RPG's don't, but then mot of them deal with landscapes instead of mechanical devices. I think it would be a great idea to allow LDD, to increase people's options. It would work best for storyless MOC's, because not as many pictures (renders) need to be taken.

LDD i think would be fine as far as free builds, personal rank ups etc. A discussion would have to be made to see if it would be allowed for challenges. We will get back to you on that.

Awesome. Thank you, Tirrell.

Would I be able to use Dark or Kashyyyk Trooper armor for my character, for lack of better gear?

It's dark grey Stormtrooper armor, like what the German laser troopers in Dust Tactics wear.

So... I got a invitation to join this group and I think its really cool! I think I get what's happening.. I am not sure.. heres my guess..
1. You post your character intro about a war hero you made up.
2. Then make creations having to do with this hero.
that's all I've got so far... I was wondering if there was more to this group? Like more things you have to do. Thanks for asking me to join your group! I was very happy some one thought I would be a good group member! (: -Bricksnapper

Something like that. But your character doesn't have to be a war hero, he could be anything, really. Although you'd probably make him into something like that, and there's no problem with that. None at all. AS to the rest, look around the group, and see what you can come up with. Also, what you do will be largely influenced by which faction you join, so you might want to do that soon.

So you join a country or army? And how do you join them do you just say I'm in this one or is there some thing you have to do? Sorry I'm flooding you with questions but I want to get it so I won't make a mistake. (:

No problem with the questions, that's what we're here for. You go the Sign-Ups thread, and post a comment stating your characters name and what faction you wish to join. There's is nothing you have to do to get in. Than you put together your character intro.

Sweet, thanks for the invite! This sounds like a ton of fun, totally in.
Three questions:
1. Can I have a pair of characters that follow each other along in most or all my MOCs?
2. I'd like to invent a soldier type named a "sapper" who in terms of this alternate reality WWII would drop explosives at the feet of mecha. It would be like those poor soldiers in WWII who ran up to tanks with socks full of dynamite, but somehow less suicidal I hope.
3. I worked up a pretty cool female mecha pilot, are you good with the occasional female soldier? I haven't ever read of a female army soldier in the US at the time... but might be fun. Unless the character is supposed to represent me? Haha, then it'll be a guy.
What do you think?

Great to see you!
1. Could you explain what you mean?
2. I think if you gave us some more info on it, then it could work
3. Look up the WAC! I do think a mecha pilot that is a female is a great idea!


Sure here's what I got so far:

1.I was thinking right now that I'd have a female American aircraft pilot who is downed in fighting over Europe (on a bombing run). She is found by a scrappy resistance fighter who whisks her away to a hideout before the Germans get to the wreckage of her plane. Then from there the two would be an inseparable pair, he a knowledgeable local and formidable fighter in his own right, and she a crack pilot who learns the way of mecha piloting to continue the fight. So I'd make up all my MOCs to follow the two of them and their adventures.

2. The local (not sure if I want to go with Danish, French, or Ukrainian yet) would be a specialized type of soldier (a "sapper") who carries explosives as his main weapon. His job would be to find a way to approach mecha in the thick of battle, adhere explosives, and take out their legs. It would be a role borne of desperation in that RPGs and other Mechas are more suited to the task, but the ragtag resistance is too poor/harried to equip all their fighters properly hence a cadre of sappers is born. Sappers could make great ride alongs with mecha as they could hop off before the battle to scurry around and find ways to sneak up on enemies and do some serious damage.

3. Awesome, you learn something every day! I had no idea the WAC even existed. I think she'll make a great character!

1. Alright, that works. However, I need to know her faction.
2. That works! Just say that they only are in the TER, as they do not have sufficient equipment.
3. Welcome!


American fighting with a TER companion in Europe, I'm hoping I can write it that she gets a radio and communicates with her american superiors to be assigned targets and thus I'd be able to go with America as the faction.

Could the alternate advancement or focus of technology innovation bring about early discoveries in different fields, like AI? The same could be said for the non-discovery of other fields...

For example, could we quickly explain away the lack of nukes or jet engines by simply "killing off the original scientist in a botched defection attempt"? If it's cool, would this be canon or do we incorporate these stories along the way?

I'm new to this style of RPG; the admins have the final word so for now I'll check before I post something to the group!
