    Doh! I forgot to add an important voting option!

    If you want to refuel the probe, you can now vote for that!

    Might be easier bookkeeping if it just cost fuel to send them out, instead of fueling them when they get back.

    This is a great idea. Implemented.

    4, D, Alloy, Disintegrate, No probes, No radar

    There's nothing about "Abduction Disk" I don't like. As much as I want a Havok Titan, we need crew to man our tanks. Afterwards, though, I've got my eyes on Freight Yard Draco so we can colossinate it. Maybe then check out the Government Complex or see what we can make out of the Military Complex?

    Didn't we install a wormhole generator on our tank though? We don't need Rail Titans because we can bend space-time to manage our logistics.

    Wait, we didn't take wormholes?

    Whoever voted for that should feel ashamed. And be lobe-clipped.

    Freight Yard Draco

    You are located at Freight Yard Draco. You may:

    - Disintegrate the freight yard for alloys and initiate lobe clipping of the present native labourers. You will need to remain stationary to complete recycling & lobe clipping operations, acquiring 2d4 General Personnel and 2d8 Alloys over 3 Ticks.

    - Use the Collossinator to transform the freight yard locomotives into a Rail Titan entity. Rail Titans may use stored alloys to construct railway networks that deliver resources & personnel to the KaT, as well as Escort Locomotives that can store additional resources & personnel. They may also act as Generals. You will need to remain stationary for 5 Ticks to erect the Rail Titan.

    - Mark Freight Yard Draco as a valuable asset and immediately move to a new location of your choice. You will gain 2d20 Asset Tokens which may be traded with other KaT units or spent to make special requests from Kaiser Fleet. Freight Yard Draco will be erased from your RADAR.

    In COLLOSSINATE I trust.

    After we've collosinated I'd propose we move to the residential area to acquire more personnel. Then we should be trying to get a navigational officer I think, more valuable areas are just plain better.

    Oh also, we cannot move while we are collosinating. So you might want to remove that from your vote?

    I dont think they are unique. 13 clicks is a lot when when we keep hitting these one clicks. I think we are better off scanning again and taking our chances.

    Thoughts: I don't think we are ready to tangle with the humans yet. Better to get some more production chains set up right now.

    Question: Does the Zettabay allow us to double our production limit or does it double what we produce? Also, do we need to research android crew or is it automatically manufactured with each tank?

    The Zettabay acts as an additional team of engineers.

    And whoops! I'll provide an option to build androids.

    Hopefully you don't mind me borrowing your posting format, Tiph. It's nice and easy to read.

    Feel free to borrow it and modify it as you like.

    I think you'll have to wait until rail titan is done to vote for movement. Otherwise it is gonna end up with silliness like someone trying to pass a vote where he details the next 10 actions. (that might be me).

    Anyone got any ideas on how to get more people to participate in this CYOA? I think it is too good to only get 5 votes every round. I've been thinking about it myself, but haven't come up with much.

    I think the number of things to do each turn is probably creating a high barrier for entry.

    Also, a little bit of time travel would speed things up a little bit and make the votes more exciting.

    Examples: What to do with a site and where to go after are two votes. We could vote on both on the same turn. If a tech pops or a production run finishes before the next big decision you could just figure the extra turns in on the vote turn.

    Set course for contact C as soon as Collossus gestation is completed and decompress the templates for heavy infantry kit, Corvus gunships and the regenerative tiles* whilst enroute. Continue fuel gathering and manufacture some Morbid class tanks using the Zettabay. Keep the abductors home, we cannot risk combat yet.

    We might as well find out what's on the base and see if it's of use to us. Might be threatening to us once our grace period is over, and we might be able to impress its' personnel and other resources into our service. At the very least, we might be able to get a few tokens out of it.

    Also, is the Betelgeuse useful to conventional infantry?

    *if queuing is allowed. If not, start decompression of the infantry kit.

    Note that this may immediately end our window of hostility-free operations.

    Get this into your mind people. We piss off anyone important right now and we cock up the entire invasion. We CAN NOT afford early discovery for sake of something that can be easily gathered from the local region without raising alarms.

    We are running around burning down whatever we damn well pleases. This invasion is hardly a secret. I'm hoping that more people will be interested if we get some action going.

    Tank Type: TREAD MASTER
    EQuipment:
    Megaresistor Tiles: Expendable that renders one attack harmless
    Zettasembler Array: Eats fuel to produce 1 additional unit
    Threat Disk Drive: Makes enemies easier to defeat
    Super Conveyance: Increases maximum speed of tank at large fuel cost


    Collossinator: Can turn various civilian areas into special units. (i.e. Rail Titan)
    Pandemic Capsule: Allows development of biological pathogens
    Android Crew Tray: Manufacture of Robotic crew and personnel


    Probe Projector: Manufacture and deployment of site scanning probes
    Psychoformatter: Allows enhancing human personnel.


    Microtons: Rapid repair and restoration of critically damaged systems

    Thought I'd make this handy guide so new players have it easier easing into the game.
    That blue is kind of hard to read on my screen, any idea on a good substitute to use?

    Within North Korea.

    Outside it, the rest of the world is still dealing with their sats going offline. Let them continue trying to figure out what's going on.

    I'm with jeep on this one but for more thematic reasons than anything.

    Would you rather the headline read "aliens abduct people from seol" or "aliens abduct people from seol and the new owner of the pacific northern is a giant selfaware steam engine and the president's lungs got sucked out of his chest by an unknown assassin"?

    CYOA Ballot Selection: 1d5 1

    Tiphareth receives an unprecedented third term. Note that I screwed-up the first election roll, so there are 2 ballot rolls. Democracy is a complicated matter!

    Well shall be decompressing the gunship, deploying Abduction Disks and creating a Diplomatic Officer.
    PHASE 1 : COURTSHIP

    AWARE Update:

    Captain, Probes Alpha, Zeta and Epsilon have completed surveys of their assigned sectors. Sector A contains a national defence command & control facility, Sector B is being patrolled by a friendly Shock Roller with the callsign 'Ico' and Sector C contains a low-density aircraft staging area. All three probes will return to the KaT in 5 Ticks.

    Probe Beta will report back in 3 Ticks.

    5 General Personnel have been assigned to Ryker Kincaid. Her team has been given access to the Avalanche Compact Tank templates and the Zettabay.

    We have commenced decompression of a template for Corvus-Class Transformable Gunships Light Infantry Fatigues.

    Abduction Disk group 'King', composed of 4 Abduction Disk units, has been dispatched to raid nearby South Korean cities. The raids will commence in 5 Ticks.

    10 General Personnel have been liquefied into command pulp for the synthesis of Joseph Cain, Rank 1Diplomatic Officer. Joseph Cain is prepared for immediate assignment.

    Collossination has been completed. Freight Yard Draco is now Rail Titan Draco, and is prepared for immediate assignment.

    71 Ticks remain of hostility-free operations.
