    We are assigned a job from friend computer and you want to delay that with personal time? As team leader I can not allow that. Now everyone follow me to the plc office and when we get to the rd facility don't touch anything

    Addendum to my speech.
    You may pay your fees after everyone has collected. Their things. While you all pay, anyone that does not have to pay will come down to RD Inspect and guard the cargo

    Well, allow me to rephrase that Bandorr, you cant modify posts *before* my last GM update (#40), that's all canon, multicorder recorded, etc...

    "Oh, I have been remiss. We will be more careful in the future. I can only hope that my example will be a means of teaching others."

    Manuel carefully records the mission briefing for later editing and then tapes himself nodding solemnly with an determined expression as the Team Leader's pronouncement plays faintly in the background. As he walks along with the group, he chooses appropriate theme music from the non-forbidden list to accompany the mission.

    Nathan simply follows the rest of the group, fiddling through his pack.

    "Just making sure I brought everything. Friend Computer always directs double-checking!"

    Rice put his book away after scribbling a few more notes and follows along, his smile not budging from his face. Happy happy happy!

    Not only is the PLC guy being penalized by the same people he works for, but he isn't even reading to leave? Even though i am the team leader i will give due credit and have everyone following the PLC guy since we are going to the PLC outfitting office.

    Manuel never really understands what the Team Leader says, but cheerfully records it in the hopes of being able to degarble it later. He then remembers that degarbling is treason.

    "Shall we go! There's a mission to do, carrying of packages and so forth!"

    Pointing his recorder and trying to give everybody but the Team Leader equal time, he follows the group to wherever it is they're going.

    Ok you all go on ill be right there im just gonna program this bot over in the corner to clean up in this room - it's filthy. I figured the hygiene officer would have pointed it out but i guess it's up to the team leader after all to point out the problems that need fixing

    /Bot Programming action skill goes here.

    Manuel arches an eyebrow and focuses his camera on the bot. "Yes, heroic team leader, do that thing!"

    Ugh, Sorry for not updating on Friday, but I got a big post coming up by Sunday.
    I had a headache that Im sure could have dropped a horse and I had to drive 30miles in NYC traffic (not fun even w/o the headache).

    For those of you wondering about me naming NYC one week and LA the next, I travel for my job a lot...

    anyways, some of you are a bit confused about what you are supposed to do in this game. Dont worry, I am doling out the information gradually so you can get used to certain fundamentals without me just posting the whole friggin book. (doable, but counter to what this game is about, and illegal in US)

    **************************************************
    POST UPDATE and MDB roles:
    Sorry about the pics, I took these the night before I flew out to NYC, but they should be readable.
    Also, LET ME KNOW IF YOU CAN ACCESS YOUR CHARACTER SHEET ON MYTH-WEAVERS! It has your skills and data, and it may give you ideas of what to do.

    Equipment:
    The PDC series 1300 is just like a cellphone
    Spoiler:

    The Equipment Guy Toolkit:
    You have a tool box with any and every kind of hand tool you'll need for your job (whether you know how to use em is your problem)

    C&R Officer Equipment:
    Comm Unit: acts *just* like a PDC, except it is shielded from EMP, Radiation and pretty much anything else that fries electronics that are emitted by waves. Bullets and lasers are another matter...

    Multicorder: Pyg/Manuel is loaded out with a Multicorder Mk1. Besides acting as a camcorder, it can only run one of the following programs at a time:
    Spoiler:

    Hygiene Officer Equipment:
    The Skin Core Sampler-6 is used to determine if a troubleshooter is below minimum cleanliness standards.
    Wrap the leather band around a body part and set the depth meter between 6 and 100. wait a few seconds and an analysis will print out.

    If the troubleshooter fails the test, you may call in a CCBot or administer an experimental Clean-It-Up pill.

    Loyalty Officer Equipment
    ILTR-1: An Indestructible Loyalty Transcripts Recorder. Basically a Notebook that is indestructible... can only be opened by the loyalty officer.

    Happiness Officer Equipment

    Pills: The Happiness Officer is supplied with many pills to help adjust teammate's behaviors back to a happy state of mind.


    **************************************************************************
    Here is a bit more of an indepth on your bonus duties. Bonus duties basically allow you to power-trip and lord over the team in certain ways. Think outside the box! Think like McGuyver in a cartoon show! Can of Bouncy Bubbly Beverage? Turn it into a claymore. Want to get an edge in the inevitable double-cross? Ask for a weapons check and sabotage a laser barrel. Give me an idea you want to try, and if it is *really* out there, Ill bring it back to an acceptable reality level. Your given an ability to tell your teammates what to do, on the surface, its benign, but you can switch pills, sabotage equipment, order members into lines of fire. Remember if they refuse you, its treason.

    As for Mandatory Bonus Duties, here is a summary of each:
    Spoiler:

    RULES UPDATE!!
    Since there is not much talking between players (probably due to my 1 player to player post limit) I've decided to recind that part of the rules. Let the double-dealing fly!

    Just remember to keep putting the current post # in each title so that they can be done in order. Also, when you send a message to a player, send one to me as well (the forums allow you to forward PMs up to 8 people at once, so you dont need to worry about writing a message twice)

    Everyone salutes Dirk-Y-UCD and prepares to leave for the UCD PLC office. Kyle-R and Nathan-R shake hands and talk about the glory days back in the decantation creches. Obviously they havent seen each other in ages and it's good to catch up with old friends. Manuel-R and Where-R stay back in the room for a few more minutes and work on a cleaning bot. Manuel-R mostly just watches over Where-R with the camcorder, leaving everyone else unwatched except by the ever-present surveillance of Alpha Complex...

    Along the way, Manuel-R's PDC chimes with a ringtone singing, "Money Money~ Yah!~"

    Bandorr has sent in a Secret Action
    Pygmalion has sent in a Secret Action
    Kuhlmeye has sent a message to Gandalf_the_Crazed


    Make your way to the PLC outfitting post. Along the way, try to break away from the team to recieve orders from your Secret societies and Service groups. Everybody knows about it, but still, come up with a way to do it.

    Not sure why you'd record someone programming a bot to do the job of someone else but whatever. You know that camera looks a little dirty like you got something on the lense or something?You can't see well if the lense is dirty you know? I wonder why this bot wasn't in use anyways? i saw some corrupt programming but nothing too bad. Maybe you should have your camera analyze it?

    As i step out of the room i say that keeping your equipment in shape is an important part of the job but you can't be too late. I assume you know where the PLC office is? Then i step back and yell oh right maybe you can have the bot clean the camera. They do a great job at that i have one in the lab cleaning my stuff.

    I then walk off down to the lab wondering how my experiments are going at my lab. Maybe the hygiene officer will be interesting in trying out this new gum-like substance that when you chew it cleans all the gunk off your teeth and then disintegrates leaving behind a fruity taste.

    *while walking down the hallway to the PLC he ponders where everyone has gone. Did someone from R&D teleport me to another dimension again? I hate when they do that. Oh well i guess i will have to keep walking around until i see someone*.

    Permission given. Go take care of what you need to, then head to PLC. If we aren't there when we get there head directly to R&D. Although i will tell you this.. the last one to R&D has to try my newest experiment. So I'd go fast..

    Illustrious Team Leader- I must also leave for a moment so that I can make sure I have enough credits to pay my fine. May I go get the funds and meet you at PLC?

    ...Also, why would you insinuate your newest experiment would be undesirable? Surely you should be REWARDING the first person to get to PLC with the amazing opportunity to use your wonderful new invention, because you've done a thorough job with the experiment and are not responsible for any collateral damage should anything go wrong with it...

    Well yes it was designed so well but there is say... 1 in 1000 that the device will overheat and explode most likely. But I can come up with a compromise.

    First one there, not counting me gets to use the device on the last one there. Two birds 1 stone. And yes all you people do what is needed before you get to RD I don't want this mission interrupted once it starts.

    Since I have nothing to do, no penalty to pay, and know the best route to RD. I'll get there first and wait for everyone to arrive.

    "I'll go with you, Team Leader! I think we should have a record of the first entrance to R&D on the mission! Yes, yes." Manuel says, as he follows along, continually recording.

    Since you have to pay the credits at the PLC how about you record the teams first penalty this mission from the computer. You can then come to the R&D and record the first use of.. well the name is a secret but it will be the first use of the device. That reminds me.. ill need to program those bots for EXTRA cleaning there is a very good chance that someone will lose at least ONE body part.. and cleaning up blood and gore is hard.

    I wonder where my pen has BEN. It is so hard to find infact i would say it's NOTORIUS for getting lost.

    Gah! Im sorry guys... there were *way* more problems to running this game than I thought there would be via PbP, and I was completely unprepared for them... its all easy to do when your sitting around at the house with everybody, but the PM boxes are just a little underpowered for what we need. I may just have to relegate this to a VOIP or chatroom, but Ill be working on this for a couple of weeks... Coin toss! Reactor meltdown or Computer shows its affection with a high intensity laser 'light show'

    Again, my sincerest apologies... If I can get this thing figured out, you guys are at the top of the list for draft picks.

    but as an act of contrition, I submit myself to the "Public Corrections Arena" (read: Public Hatings) for the remainder of the day...
