#1747195 Galactic Defense Initiative - Interest Check

Posted by Rolf Amsel on 09 March 2018 - 07:54 AM

As an aside, it would be nice if we didn't have to turn this into a ridiculous rau. Antagonistic comments from anyone in an LFG thread are uuneccesary. If anyone is confused about what happened at Ketal, I implore you to both read the thread and talk to the First Order admins, we're more than happy to discuss it.

Also, I would suggest we keep this on topic rather than spamming an us v them argument and dragging other factions into it. I say this because it gets old, hearing the same nuanced argument over and over again.

More to the OP though, what if you modified it, towards a common goal as opposed to such an open ended "war against terror"? Focusing in on "Humanity First" or something like Cerberus from the Mass Effect games might give you a little bit more narrow of an objective and drive long term activity.

#1744828 Kaine's Beskar'gam Mk II

Posted by Rolf Amsel on 05 March 2018 - 03:22 PM

At first glance, the ratings are a bit unbalanced as they all reside in the "High" or above range. I would say knock down some of them or add further weaknesses to better balance the submission. Beskar is definitely one of those things that is near impervious to most things, but the submission itself will need to be more balanced before it is approved.

#1739277 Invasion of Dagobah - Results

#1739249 Invasion of Dagobah - Results

Invasion of Dagobah Results


The battle over Dagobah and the surrounding sector was hard fought, Alliance and First Order forces meeting in the void as well as a violent, knock down - drag out fight in the muck and mud of the swamps of the planet itself. Through the fog and mist, a victorious presence emerged, the banner of the First Order rises! Now under Imperial Control, the First Order claims a new sector of space, securing yet another swathe of space under the might of the Imperial war Machine. 


Congratulations to my fellow First Order writers, and good show - the Alliance put up a valiant effort and produced a lot of good character development opportunities across the board. Thank you all for participation, allies and opposition (And their allies) alike! For the Order!

#1736238 Darth Aion's Environmental Armor

Posted by Rolf Amsel on 20 February 2018 - 09:25 AM

Darth Aion


In efforts to make this as simple as possible, I'll say this. Currently, as is, the submission is far too unbalanced, meaning:


  • Overall, the submission does not appear to have weaknesses that balance it. This armor submission as it stands is far too resistant to too wide a range of attacks. What I would recommend is choosing two primary resistances, and go from there. While there are viable reasons for the resistances due to subsystems like shields or armor plating, there seems to be a system in place to negate any weakness left by each component. 
  • As far as you being unsure of how to further balance the submission, simply put: Remove some of the systems that make it unbalanced. Remove a component or a material that increases a specific resistance.
  • Regarding Extreme Resistance vs "Nigh Indestructibility". Phrik, while perfectly reasonable to use as a restricted material and useable in armors, it usually is at a depreciated capacity. What that means, is that you could dilute it, maybe it's thin which decreases its durability, maybe it's mixed with another metal which dilutes its durability - basically, "Nigh Indestructible" simply isn't going to be able to be accepted in this armor submission.
  • If you can, try to make this less a "Defense against everything" armor, and more of a "Defense against things my character might not be able to defend against easily" armor, I find that making an armor specifically meant to counter character weaknesses as opposed to "Defense against everything" tends to almost self balance itself. 

#1732015 Hellscream-class Plasma Railgun

Posted by Rolf Amsel on 13 February 2018 - 04:26 PM

Recoil: Average


To better balance this, I would change this to a High Rating. 


Burning Aftermath: When the electromagnetically charged plasma bolts make contact with a target, the plasma continuously burned the target. The plasmais capable of burning through shields and hulls.


Shields: The Hellscream's plasma bolts aren't able to penetrate shields. They would have to burn through the shields before making contact with a ship's hull.


These two (Strength and Weakness) seem to contradict each other. What might sound/work better is something explaining that the effect of the charged plasma bolts, once they make contact with a target, the heat takes longer to dissipate which creates a 'damage over time' effect as the energy is released. Clarifying whether or not it is effective against shields or hull, or highlighting the effectiveness against physical hull in the strength will make both the strength and weakness viable.

The adhesive had done its job - mostly. That much he could see, but moving himself was another matter entirely. Having detonated at his waist, the sticky foam had all but covered the commando in a mess of rapidly expanding goo. In that moment, Rolf wish he could have said he was unfamiliar with glop grenades, but he'd been trapped in a similar situation during the opening blows of the confrontation that had escalated into a full on war between the First Order and the Alliance. Rolf had even been present for some of the defining moments during the offensive, he'd bled along with the rest of them.. and yet here he stood while many of them did not. The present could not be bothered with regrets of the past however, the rapid expansion of the foam now ceasing, solidifying as it caught at least one of the others in its grasp.


The force of the explosion had been blunted by the armor he wore but even that had only gone so far. The wind had been knocked out of him, a momentary blackout followed by a desperate gasp. The thick acrid smell of the chemicals mixed with the violently pattering rain only further increased the momentary sensation of drowning as his lungs fought to provide his body with oxygen. The mechanical systems operated his lungs well enough but even they felt the brief trauma of such a close detonation, even of a non-lethal device. Painfully, Rolf blinked water from his eyes, his body held at an angle by the solidifying goop. Around him he could see only some of the devastation it had wrought, plants and ground alike covered in the inky substance. Behind him he could hear a voice, one of the Jedi. Almost frantically he craned his neck, trying to see behind him - he couldn't tell which one of them it was. As his head turned from left to right, he winced. *Yeah.. that'll have left a mark...* he thought wryly, a dull aching pain settling in across his midsection. Catching his breath, Rolf's eyes fell to the edge of the small clearing they were in, if you could call it that. Motion and a rapid burst of water droplets revealed a handful of Alliance soldiers led by a Sullustan. *A sullustan with some huevos.*


Having walked right up to the edge of the mess of foam, the soldier taunted the First Order Commando. 


"That's a neat trick. Got any more to show me, or should we just shoot you now and save ourselves the trouble?"


His mouth was dry, body still trying to catch up with what exactly he was subjecting himself to. He spoke, his voice cracking just a hair as he forced the words. "Do what you will, Alliance dog." he muttered. He was fairly well stuck in this one. Or at least, he'd thought he was. Weaponless, no grenades to make even a veiled threat - there weren't much in the way of options here. *Unless...* An idea began to form in the Commando's mind. He was about to make another retort when blaster fire erupted near the edges of the clearing, colored blasts arcing past where he was helplessly stuck. It was the distraction he needed. Unfortunately for the Storm Commando, his helmet had been discarded not long after the crash, but the remainder of his armor was intact - including the power gloves. Time seemed to slow in that moment. One of the Empire's Commando's had materialized behind an Alliance soldier, an explosion, he couldn't focus on any of it if he wanted to live. Bringing his focus solely on the muck below, Rolf's hands went to work. Already the goo had begun to solidify, chips forming in the thinner areas of the spread. Within five minutes the foam would be brittle, able to be chipped away - at least, he hoped. The rain certainly wasn't going to make that any easier. Just above a violent cacophony erupted, flashes of light illuminating the rapidly darkening sky. *Blast.* The foam was coming away in glops, not yet hardened enough to really give him the advantage. Behind him he could hear the hiss of the lightsaber as it evaporated the rain and cut into the foam. He was running out of ideas, and time. 


For a moment, he hesitated there, the world seeming to collapse around him. He didn't have any more options, he didn't have time to think of more, and so he acted. With a speed unparalleled, the man reached to his forearm, peeling away the armored gauntlet to reveal the bodysuit below. In an act of desparation, he began to use the removed gauntlet as a trowel, scooping the blackened foam away from his legs in an attempt to free himself. Aided by the auto-adrenal injection system integrated into his armor he was able to make significant progress, and audible pop sounding as one of his feet slipped free. It was a far cry from escape, but he was getting there. 


Almost lost in the wash of noise around him, the rain against the foliage, the sounds of blaster fire and combat, a familiar sound reached the Commando's ears. *A ship.* Hands pausing his gaze was averted upward. Blinking hard a few times as the rain stung, Rolf recognized the silhouette of a gunship - whose he couldn't tell but it wasn't one he recognized. It drove him to dig all the faster, now struggling to get his remaining ankle free of the incredibly sticky foam. Even as he did, more blaster fire erupted. He couldn't tell whether it was friendly or enemy and with a final violent tug he felt his ankle give way, body toppling onto the rapidly hardening foam just outside the epicenter. "FETHING...!" he shouted. As his foot slipped free, he could feel a violent shudder course through his foot, an audible crack sounding as he felt the bones and tendons resist, then snap. Pain drove him to the ground and as he tried to stand he slipped again, this time landing hard on a shoulder. Issuing a curse under his breath, he was thankful for the adrenaline now coursing through his system but he knew it wouldn't last for long. Desperately he clawed his way towards a particularly large fern, hoping that the eruption of gunfire and arrival of the golden hulled dropship would be distraction enough for him to go mostly unnoticed.
