SM Planning & Discussion, Version N.3

Post by Tavish McFini » 2012-05-05 04:09

By the Force I do hate double-posting...

Anyways, this is just a call to anyone involved with SM: Glamour Profession. It's more or less at the end stages so if anyone has another post or two they would like to get off, let me know. Otherwise, I intend to close it off and debrief it this weekend (sooner if everyone comes back and says "I'm done").

Thanks!

Fini, I did what I felt was needed on my side of the qworld since Thess wrecked it out on her side. ;) I am done with my characters. Medical doesn't need a close out from my guy. ;)

Re: Glamor Profession...

Barring a post from the Valkyrie fleet, naval ops are complete, and fleet personnel are ready for debriefing. Thess' involvement in ground force ops is complete, pending a response from the grounds crew at the control bunker.

Re: Deep Impact...

Pending a post to leave the theater of operations, Dac One is complete and awaits debriefing.

I can probably call it safe in Deep Impact too. Lynine managed to return (albeit not without causing some damage to the hanger) and Aquila, well, barring any new developments the Space Force will have to deal with, we can assume they either got back on the ships before exiting the system or made a microjump to rendezvous with the fleet before leaving for NIF space proper ;)

I'm finished with Glamor Profession, kinda ran out of ideas at the end there. Finished with Deep Impact as well.

No worries Spyk! I'll speak for Ace when I say it's better to wait just a bit longer and let you get things done to the way you want them to be than to prematurely close things. I should know, I've done it twice now on people...

I hope I'm not getting too far ahead of things with the link to the Mediator-class in ODI; if anything, just consider it the initial concept, as the full design isn't set to enter service for another few years.

Brigid and I are done in Deep Impact. I think that's everyone, so it should be good for a debrief.

Well, at the end of Service Eval, I plan to have the ISIS declare a shadow war on the Commissariat... Might spur some nifty ideas there especially since it means we could (technically) fight fellow Imperials and therefore get to be owned by Fed tech while using Fed tech to try to own them :D

In regards to Operation: Boddhisattva (the new PT mission formed by Fini)...I want to keep everyone who jumps in on the same page, so we don't have a royal Charlie Foxtrot develop in short order. To that end, as theater commander for the SM in question, I want to warn everyone ahead of time that the Empire's modus operandi for the assignment will be Strength Through Superior...

...Tolerance. Peace, tolerance, and diplomacy are the languages of business; efficiency, thoroughness, and protection, the watchwords. Victory will be secured.

Let's rock.

Presumably this means I can deploy my life size plushie of Lieutenant Kettch Blitz? ;)

Side note: Update the picture use thread :P

Poseidon is winding down, and once its done I would like to post another mission in its place. Something thats nice and simple. I've veered away from the hostage scenario only because its too similar to Poseidon itself.

So anyone with ideas, now is the time to flood this thread with them :D

Well, I would say aim for simple, short SMs as those might work out really well in the sense that you might be able to get it done in the course of a year ;)

As for ideas... I've got a few but I'm mostly saving those for my SMs but I can perhaps spare a few ideas:
  • A heist? We need to steal something from someone/some group/somewhere/etc.?
  • A scramble operation? The NIF is under attack from someone/some group/somewhere/etc.?
  • Space Hulk. The NIF finds a large, derelict ship/asteroid with abandoned buildings/space station/etc. drifting somewhere near the unknown regions?
  • A raid? We send a small group of pilots/agents/soldiers/etc. to go blow up a fuel depot/ammo dump/water treatment plant/factory/hospital/military base/shipyard/repair yard/Incom factory/underwater base/etc. etc. etc.
  • NIF politician has had death threats levied against him/her. We need to protect him/her while he/she gives a big speech in honor of the Emperor/NIF/military/Dark Jedi?
  • Someone has been murdering NIF officers on the Firro. Find this bastard and bring him to justice!
  • The Hutts are building a massive space station and we want to steal it! We need to escort a few hundred hyperspace tugs into Hutt Space and make off with their baby!
  • Kane has fallen ill and we need to acquire 11 ultra rare ingredients to make the magical medkit potion that will cure him of his ailment!
  • Jacen wants to build Jacenland but rioters are protesting the construction of this theme park on an Old Republic War Memorial on Corellia. We need to quell the rioters and protect the construction bots as they start laying the foundations to this mega amusement park!!!
  • Fini's run out of Blue Wave and he's used up all of second fleet's budget. He needs brave souls to venture into First Fleet, gank their budget and return to Third Fleet, alive and without tipping Kane off that his credits have been ganked.
  • Blitz (Wolfgang actually) is about to get married to Laurel and we need to throw him the ultimate bachelor party! Thing is, he wants no part in it so we need to 1) kidnap him and 2) show him the time of his life!
  • A plague is causing all the Jedi and Dark Jedi to go crazy! We need to find the cure!
  • Eri just lost a sniping contest to some NR sniper. She's absolutely livid and demands a rematch but the NR sniper is being a prick and is refusing to give her that chance. Kidnap this bastard so she can prove that she's the best!
  • Ryan just took over a planet. We now need to take this planet from Ryan!
  • (because Laurel would kill me if I didn't suggest this) Aquila and Spyker need to kiss. Make it happen!
  • The Emperor's son is about to turn <insert applicable age here (I'm guessing 10)>. We need to buy him a gift and throw him the most baller birthday party evah! (And then kidnap him for Syren).
  • The Empress wants to tour the war torn areas of the NIF. Provide escort and remember, the Emperor will kill you if harm befalls her... or you so much as look at her too...
  • Lando Calrissian has just commenced a hostile takeover of Constantine Industries. We need to stop this megalomaniac from acquiring this pro-NIF corporation!
  • The NR are harassing NIF convoys, stop them!
  • Map out the Unknown Regions.
  • Tour around Wild Space.
  • Drop in on ICE and say "hi"
  • Pull a prank on Kane and live to tell the tale!
  • A dying kid in the NIF submitted a wish to the Make-a-Dream-Come-True Foundation. He wants to drink a bottle of fizzyglug special edition. Secure a bottle of fizzyglug special edition for this kid.
There, that's the short brianstorm list. Note, it's meant to spur ideas rather than be taken seriously (in most cases ;) )

Things that make you go hmm....:

I've had this picture floating around my bookmarks for a while, and the gist of something involving retrieval of Celestial or Infinite Empire tech being transported on it rattling around my head. Thoughts?

Dunno if I'm actually allowed to post here, but while I did say that alot of these ideas were awesome some make for better lounge threads than Side Missions. The space hulk thing (which I know you lifted from Warhammer 40k) actually does provide a pretty good suggestion, it'd be short sweet and to the point....though I'd like to suggest combining it with a suggestion for an SM I made a while back to do something with the Reavers from Firefly, which with that was pretty much precisely what I had in mind.
