Re: Speak of the Devil [MSG UC]

Yep. Not that there's much point to it.

Re: Speak of the Devil [MSG UC]

"I told you, I'm fine." – Amuro grumbled as Ryu was herding him towards the White Base's sickbay, the latter limping in obvious discomfort from his leg injuries. The burly man was on him like white on the Gundam the moment he climbed out of the cockpit and waved away the concerned engineers looking ...

Re: Speak of the Devil [MSG UC]

Amuro's knuckles were still tense on the controls by the time he was nearing the factory section once more, the smoke from the fires visibly fogging the longitudinal axis of the colony above him. It would take the environmental systems a couple of days to clear it out, but structural damage to the c...

Re: Speak of the Devil [MSG UC]

As soon as his Zaku's cockpit screen indicated he had a connection to the Falmel through the Minovsky interference, Char all but slammed the button to open the intercom. By now the adrenaline has worn off and he was angry . – "Dren, start charging the mega beam cannons!" – he barked. " Sir, what hap...

Re: Speak of the Devil [MSG UC]

The entrance door of the Ray residence all but slammed open as Frau hurried inside, mouth already opening for a shout. – "Amu-!" Except she barely even got the first sound out when Amuro stepped out from behind a corner with jacket and shoes on, instead of the half-dressed state she expected him to ...

Speak of the Devil [MSG UC]

He didn't know how to define the darkness before him. It was darkness, and yet it was not. It was empty, and yet it was not. It was nothing… and yet it was eternity. All the times he reached beyond the state of existence known by Oldtypes couldn't even remotely compare to this. The "expansion of con...

Re: A 20th century with mechas

Oh nonononono, I am NOT a Nazi sympathizer. It's just that they're the only ones who would ever seriously think of wunderwaffen concepts like this.

Re: A 20th century with mechas

I get it guys, it sucks, I suck. I get it.

I don't have the writing skills to make anything other than a horrible mess out of this anyway. Just throwing stuff at the wall to see what sticks.

A 20th century with mechas

Last year, a question came to me while watching a let's play of Wolfenstein: The New Order. If Nazi Germany were to develop a dieselpunk version of a Zaku I using 1939-era technology, what would their name for a mobile suit be? I was thinking that sometime in the thirties, the highest echelons of Na...

Re: Writing project questions

Oh, no no no no no no no. No. Any spacecraft small enough to enter an atmosphere will not be big enough to mount a fusion or fission engine needed for fast interplanetary flight, and that's just the first of a number of engineering nightmares that happen when you try and make a spaceship also funct...

Re: Writing project questions

Uh, 1 G is exactly the same gravity as on Earth I know. That's why I said that value. so I'm not sure what the problem is for damage control crews if you are accelerating that fast. Hauling DC equipment up several hundred meters on ladders in a timely manner. And that's if there are ladders in the ...

Re: Writing project questions

A new question came to me just now. For a warship without artificial gravity that doesn't have to worry about delta-V, realistically how strong forward acceleration I can assume before it starts inhibiting crew mobility too much? I'm asking because I just found out that even with 1g acceleration, it...

Re: Writing project questions

^ Interesting idea. If independent FTL is not possible how the jump gates got to other systems in the first place ? If in system sublight travel still takes quite long then it seems sublight engine technology is not up to the task of relativistic flight to deliver jump gates to nearby star systems i...

Re: Writing project questions

If the other side has that much of a numeric disparity to your humans... how the hell did they not just wipe out your humans. That's what their invasion fleet was meant to do. It's just that the last time they had contact with humanity, humanity was still limited to Earth and had to resort to cutti...

Writing project questions

I have a few questions regarding an ongoing writing project of mine. First. What would be a realistic crew count for a spaceship with no independent FTL capabilities? Specifically, in the current timeframe of the universe in question, humanity's FTL capabilities are limited to fixed gates with a tra...

Re: New Member Introductions

...might as well get this out of the way. Howdy, all. I may be a bit of an odd-one-out here, being more of an anime guy who loves the shit out of his mecha (primarily Gundam) than a fan of live-action stuff. That said, Stargate is a favorite of mine and in the past months, I've began considering the...
