OK, so, there seems to be a little bit of disagreement on how we handle battles. Conflicts take longer than other kinds of scenes, and not everyone get to participate - maybe because their character skills are less combat oriented, or because they can't post really really fast to keep turns moving, mostly because it doesn't fit their character concept, probably, which I think is generally the reason for all the former. I want everyone's opinion about how the first Conflict was handled, if you didn't get to fight, what did you think about it. Did it bore you? Did it take too long?

Now, some numbers: the Diner scene lasted a total of 18 days. About 10 of those were Conflict. These were also slightly more dense in terms of posts. The remaining days were mostly In Character roleplaying. During the conflict, those not fighting were basically doing other in-character roleplaying, so I guess that wasn't so different. The fight itself wasn't that easy, I burned most of my Fate points just to keep up with the skill level of the NPCs.

I'll post my own opinion in the comments below.

Lexi's not much of a fighter, at least not in this context. I'll add some flavor though :)

Benton's Story

As a Constable of the Royal Mounted Space Police, Benton Tracer has always conducted himself in a professional and courteous manner. This was something his grandparents had always taught him, although this didn't always earn him the highest respect of his peers and superiors. In their eyes, he was honest and polite to a fault. But clearly that was their problem, not his. He had to set a good example.

In one of his many cases, he was tracking a man he suspected of moon otter trafficking. Being a protected species native to the Corewards Territories it was deemed unlawful, but not of a very high priority by the police forces. Still, Benton was relentless in his pursuit of this individual, and tracked him across the harshest of terrains.

Eventually, when he caught up with the perpetrator, he came across a strange scene: he found the suspect bludgeoned to death with the body of a dead moon otter and left to rot in a frozen valley. Most of the man's belongings were untouched, but the crates he was smuggling were empty. Curiously, there was not a trace of any animal ever being in them. What he found was much more unsettling: there were remains of poutine and empty packages of StarSmarties... this was not the usual diet of a moon otter, but of an entirely different creature: homo sapiens sapiens.

Clearly, he had came across a much bigger and darker operation. Slave trafficking! He had to follow this lead and put an end to this sort of wrongdoing, as any decent member of law enforcement ought to do. Not to mention the highly illegal practice of using dead otters as blunt instruments.

He tried to convince his superior officers to follow the investigation, and it was his staff sergeant Grenville, who eventually relented and approved the mission, not before trying to talk him out of it, as he was needed here and it was a waste of his abilities.

Benton's investigations took him away from the Territories. He was hot on the trail of a group of miscreants led by an Alistar Roy. He had quickly narrowed down the sector of origin of the contraband, as the taste of that particular mixture of poutine-gravy was made with peppers that could only be found there. Helped in no small amount by Annabelle Pleiades, he gathered enough evidence to round up the malefactors. The local authorities that assisted him, saw him narrowly evade death numerous times, never letting go of his campaign hat, and a rumour started that it was his signature piece of headwear that protected him, like some sort of Stetson of Fate.

But this wasn't the end of this case. The reprobates had in their possession evidence that implicated several corrupt law officers. The slaves were being used by seemingly legitimate corporations in the Territories, and this was covered up by someone in his own law organization! He was repeatedly told to let the matter drop, but he couldn't bring himself to do it. he was a Space Mountie. He always got his man.

In the end, he followed the trail which led him directly to SSgt. Greenville. His own mentor had been in it the whole time. Altough he pleaded with him, and in the end even attacked him in an attempt to flee from justice, he was captured by Tracer and sent to prison. Justice had prevailed.

What followed, however, was completely unexpected: rather than a hero's welcome, backs were turned on him. While his pursuit of law was moral and just, his peers felt as if an act of betrayal had been commited: he had turned on a fellow Mountie. And clearly, someone in power felt either the same way, or were connected with the case and wanted him gone.

He was given a choice: leave the Territories again, to perform security enforcement for "The Company" in Edcenin as a representative of the RMSP, or spend the rest of his career (or at least the next several years) behind a desk. He chose the former - at least he had built a certain amount of rapport in the sector, and would be performing his duties, albeit in a diminished capacity. And it would enable him to get back on his feet.

Too late to add a picture to my character, so I thought I'd share this pic I found, this is what Royal Space Mounties look when fully geared up for space-related activities.

My character (a work in Progress) has been somewhat written. I'm going to completely rip off the format that Kevin used to explain / ask for suggestions:

(kudos if you get the references :P)

High Concept: Former Royal Space Mountie
The idea is that he is a former Space Mountie (which is now a thing) but for some reason he had to quit or got kicked out (ironically, for being too honest and pissing off the wrong people).
Invoke: To support any skill that a Space Mountie would have, like outdoors stuff, driving, weapon training. Contacts from his time in said organization.
Compel: Not sure how this could be compelled, other than already covered by his Trouble and his Crisis (when he got kicked out). It could be used against him if he's going directly against the wellbeing of said organization, since he still respects it.

Trouble: Honest and Polite to a Fault
And also for some reason, he's trying to find a job that fits his skillset, so he ends up as a mercenary, but struggles with all the grey morality that usually comes from that line of work.
He's not some sort of saint or preacher of morality, or going to oppose every unlawful action the group decides, but he's not gonna be good at it at all.
Also he's extremely polite.
Invoke: Could be used to get a bonus to Rapport or to notice when something crooked has happened.
Compel: Any time he has to do something that goes against his nature, like being rude or deceitful (he can still wear disguises or pretend to be someone else as long as it is "Lawfully", whatever that means), outright breaking laws (to a lesser extent would apply to trying to bend the law or looking for loopholes). This manifests in actually doing it really badly or being obvious at it, or getting easily caught, rather than confessing or just refusing to do it.

Starting Out: Stetson of Fate
When joining the Mounties, he wore the uniform with great pride, and never parts with his campaign hat. Even when out of uniform, he wears it at all times (except when it's the Polite Thing to take it off), and it affects him to the point that it seems to bend reality in his favor.
Invoke: Invoke the hat to help him evade danger or physical harm.
Compel: Any time he is not wearing his hat, (for voluntary reasons or not), there's a higher chance that he'll get hurt, failing to avoid an attack, or a risky skill check (as long as there is actual danger, he's not simply going to randomly break a leg while crossing the street).

Moment of Crisis: Enemies in the Force/Homeworld (pending a better name - was also a candidate for Trouble)
So, at some point in his career, he solved a pretty big case, which ended up exposing a lot of corruption, a lot of people losing his jobs, etc. This is the reason he had to leave it all behind (he may not been "officially kicked out" but might as well). Essentially, most of the higher ups in the Space Royal Mounted Police, and a lot of civilian workers from his homeworld/space country/whatever hate his guts.
Invoke: There's a small chance whoever meets the criteria for this considers him a hero for doing his job. This probably includes a lot of his own mates, just not the bosses or anyone who was crooked. Or out of a job.
Compel: This can come up a lot whenever he meets with anyone that was affected by said event. He could be identified when it's not appropriate, someone could want to start a fight with him, etc.

Character Crossover:
Invoke:
Compel:

Main Skills: Survival, Athletics, Shoot, Drive

He's an outdoors kind of cop, so Survival is his top skill. It also substitutes for investigation-type stuff (got a Stunt for that) when it normally wouldn't apply (like, he's going to sniff candy wrappers in the middle of a city or space station to figure out where some bad guy is hiding).
I figured Drive because he's a mountie, of some sort of Speeder-Bike I assume is in the setting.

Yeah, it's just one local government. If there are jurisdiction issues, those guys probably arrange that with embassies, or simply go out hunting, depending on how lawless is the setting in general.

Ok, I've been working this almost since Day One of season 2. It's gotten to the point where I'm confortable sharing some WIP pictures. Right now, it's all just hull, with some shield lining and a crappy engine and jumpdrive. Next step: interiors.
And yeah this would be my version of the Great Harbour Ship of Bentus, from HW2.

So, someone posted this nonsense to the spanish atheism group. Sorry about the terrible english, it's translated using Google.

It's about "Anti-atheism" and how it is important because why not.

This was the guys' reply to nothing in particular (apparently he just reposted that crud, not actually authored)
"My theory, better, my hypothesis is that it is possible to refute or at least discourage atheists, using arguments based on logic and reason.
.
In theology try to argue rationally with an atheist is beyond any possibility, because the atheist has fallen into a tight dogmatism, which prevents him from accepting criticism.
.
any topic should be examined with a magnifying glass to set its validity, if atheism accepts not be under consideration, then it is not very different from what attacks"

Asi que, hoy descubri que por alguna razon, el Nuevo G+ no muestra todos los contactos de nuestros circulos al compartir (me mostraba todos los homonimos excepto el unico que si estaba en mis circulos), pero el "clasico" si. Debe ser una mejora de Google para que conozcamos mas gente nueva en lugar de siempre conversar con nuestros conocidos...

So, I made this, the Jumpgate Suppository, it fits snugly through any gate's shuttle hole. One could be yours for a very adequate sum! As soon as I figure the price and have time to place a shop somewhere :P
