Empire of Andrew Regional Message Board
After spending most of my day with friends for the first time in over a year, I finally got back home and started catching up on NS until my internet router stopped working after my youngest brother messed with it while trying to figure out why his phone wasn't connecting to it. Needless to say, I'm forced to use my phone's hotspot to continue working on my CAS Dispatch and anything else NS related...
Anyway, very nice posts Andrew and Orson (you too, Novo)! Your RP has come a long way even though it hasn't been around that long, and there isn't a time where I don't enjoy reading what you all put out for us here on the rmb.
Ooof...I am sorry to hear that man. I know the pains of having your internet suddenly cutting out and needing to use your data/Hotspot to do anything...same thing happened when my internet provider decided to add ghost charges and when we refused to pay, than cut us off for weeks...might sound stupid, but have trying disconnecting it and reconnecting the modem to see if that works?
And thanks man! It definitely has come along way, and I have Orson and Novo to thank for it! If it weren't for both their brilliant ideas and remarkable RP skills, this wouldn't have gotten as far as it has!
And not sure if you saw, but incredible work with what you've done with both the Olympics and your factbooks so far Fel! Both have always been so interesting to read and always love the great detail you put into them! I do hope your wifi situation gets sorted out soon, so that you can properly get back into making more of them!
(OOC: I'll be writing this from the perspective of an average citizen whose been all over the Empire. I'd thought it be more realistic then what any tour company or the government would say. Also, "MIB" means man-in-black- it's a common term for an Inquisitor or government agent.)
Ravenwood, Australia: "Overall, I'd say it's a very clean and orderly city. You can walk the streets freely without some hustler or MIB constantly harassing you- can't say the same about many other cities. Good amount of people there work for the government and are on strict schedules- if you want to explore, the best time to do it is when they're all busy. You need a pass to access Central Plaza, but not much worth seeing there in my opinion. Rush hour can be a bit of a nightmare, but that's expected with a city this large. Plenty of university lads as well- I myself graduated from the War College, but they're fairly disciplined. They tend to go right into the tech startups after finishing, those in that field at least. Most annoying thing can be the elitist vibe that's present at times. The city's a nexus point for every bootlicker you can imagine, and they like to thumb their noses at anyone not in their 'exclusive' circles. Other than that, I quite like it."
Tara, New Zealand: Ahh, good old Tara- party central, I tell yah. I was stationed there years back, and it was insane what you could get up to. It's a vacation hotspot- people like to go there because of the weather and to see the ocean. They got every kind of restaurant and venue imaginable. Want to surf out of the bay? You got it. Want to hike the nearby hills and mountains? Go right ahead. Want to try some exotic drug you rarely see at any other dispensary? It's there, and it will f-ck you up. Best red light district anywhere in the country- the women are beautiful and excel at their work, if you know what I mean. The film industry's pretty big out there and the superstars own these huge mansions, furthering the debauchery. Only negative was the bloody Inquisitors, practically crawling all over the damned place and with nothing better to do than pester people. Nearly got in a brawl with two of them once- man, my CO saved my ass from a jail cell that night. I heard Prince Acdel was commanding them at the time- "The Shark" they called him, and based on the rumors a name rightfully deserved."
Fort Victorium, Australia: "A worthless, overcrowded f-cking dump, that's what I think of it. If you go there, get ready to be approached by every bum, hustler, dealer, and two-bit criminal imaginable, all looking for the perfect score or to simply rob you. Don't dare cross into the wrong neighborhood or turf if you value your life- bloody lunatics won't hesitate to beat you into a fine pulp or fill you full of lead. Everyone's always pissed about something and riots are frequent- that neat little corner shop you enjoy frequenting might just be burned down or shot up tomorrow, so don't take it for granted. Traffic is constant and the noise never dies down- you won't sleep a wink. The air smells like sewage and the sky is constantly grey from all that pollution- it's the industrial heartland of the Empire. Don't even get me started about the bars- I went to this hole-in-the-wall place in one of the seedier wards once and got way too drunk. When I woke up, I was out on the sidewalk and the building was on fire- one of the patrons had a grudge against the owner, so they brought in a Molotov cocktail. Lucky to escape with my life from that. If all of that don't get you, MIB just might. They are utterly relentless, and just as corrupt as any criminal. I've seen Inquisitors shake down people and steal everything, even the clothes off your back. Beyond them, be careful how you carry yourself- surveillance is omnipresent. They got cameras on every building, at every intersection, inside every nook and cranny- hell, even right inside your homes, violating your privacy. You can't even take a sh-t without the Emperor himself seeing what it looks like! Just don't go to that dump if you don't got to."
Aturo, New Guinea: "I was stationed there for my early training- that city gives me an odd vibe, in all honesty. It's clean and whatnot and pretty much the opposite of Victorium, but the culture is...I don't know, just too formal for me. Having a basic conversation with anyone there is a surreal experience. There is barely any small talk. It seems like no one smiled, laughed...everyone is just completely focused on their careers. A big part of the culture is that society takes precedence over all, and that one must base their entire lives around the greater good. Being a naval officer, I'm no stranger to making sacrifices, but the people there were just unbearable to be around. Always curt, aloof, showing little tolerance for even the smallest mistake...man, I was glad when I was re-located elsewhere. I will say, the Fudoas are a sight to see. I loved how they combined the island's natural fauna and flora with the cityscape."
Kinshasa, Congo: "Felt like I was in a foreign country and on another planet simultaneously there. They've got the most advanced technology I'd ever seen- self-driving cars, personal robots, artificial intelligence...hell, the humans there have modded their bodies to be as capable as Orsonians. Thought I'd see a flying car whiz overhead at any moment. Pretty much no one is poor, as they guarantee their citizens a basic income. Very little crime or unrest- everyone looked happy or at least content. I swear, I must have heard over a dozen different languages being spoken during my trips there, none of them being the Standard Dialect- truly the greatest melting pot in Orson. The city itself is utterly gorgeous- imagine the beauty of Santa Catalina transported to the Empire and scaled up even further. If you like gambling, casinos are world-class and could fill an entire itinerary by themselves."
Yeah, but it didn't work for whatever reason. One of my other brothers tried fixing it to the best of his ability, but to no avail. He began looking up potential ways to fix it, but he decided that it was too much work for the time being (as it just recently passed 12:00 AM over here) and went to sleep stating that it would be best to wait for the morning and see what happens then.
Thanks for liking my recent works, Andrew! Even though I'm not really good at RPs, I make up for it by putting my heart and soul into these little pieces of world-building. I also hope my wifi situation gets sorted out, but I should be somewhat fine with my hotspot for the time being; the last time I had to use my hotspot for long periods of time was when my family visited Florida for the Easter holiday a few years back, and my data got used up before the week was spent since one of my brothers wanted to be connected to it as well.
Man, like Orson said, it really does suck, since we all pretty much rely on it nowadays. The best thing I can suggest is trying to contact your internet provider tomorrow and seeing if they can help detect the problem or help troubleshoot it for you. This is ridiculous man, I really do hope it's fixed soon man.
You certainly do man! And I am impressed every time I see you posting your works. I can always see the great effort you put into it all. And I gotcha man. It is never nice to need to rely on your Hotspot or data for too long. I'm lucky, cause the phone plan I'm signed up for gives me unlimited data, so if go anywhere, I'm covered. You and your brothers live alone or you stay with your parents? Just checking to see if you got a lot of people relying on your Hotspot or if it'll just be you?
Thanks, Orson. Although there's nothing terribly bad going on right now, hopefully things can be sorted out tomorrow.
All of my brothers (except for the oldest) and I live with our mom. Data shouldn't be an issue since nearly all of us have our own phones with their own data to use, and the next phone payments are coming up soon (the 19th), so it'll definitely be good for us then. Over the course of the past month, I've used up only 5 out of 50GB - so I am definitely in the clear when it comes down to relying on my hotspot for wifi.
Ah OK, so then by the sounds of it, like you said, should be completely fine. Really no need to worry, since you have your hotspot active and you've barely touched into it, so hopefully the matter is resolved sooner rather than later though. When my former provider cut us off and tried pulling some underhanded stuff, it really set us back...but luckily we got our situation resolved.
Agent Garm pressed on with the Princess, desperately attempting to escape or at least hide, but to no avail. She made it about 100 meters away before being forced to slow down. Her legs gave out, and the last of the energy she possessed from the rage state withered away. Garm dropped the unconscious Amira on the grass and fell to her knees. Garm looked around, scanning the area: the "forest" was now an empty field, the fight between the Inquisitors and the Sultan being so intense that hundreds of trees were felled and the ground was completely scoured. The DGSI agents continued grow ever closer while helicopters buzzed overhead.
Coming down from the meth-driven insanity was extremely difficult, but Garm's training allowed her to maintain at least some clarity. The Inquisitor looked down at her clothing and armor, torn to bits by the extreme combat, and she was practically half-naked. As Garm kneeled there in the grass, she came to the final realization that the mission had failed. Fireteam 10 was finished- Forren and Halar were dead, while Gen was in Wagain custody. She could only reminisce at the events that led to this moment. That operation in Kinshasa three years ago had started it all...Garm remembered detaining Annie Riqueti, the Wagain journalist who was aiding the Federalists in secret. If only Garm could have gotten her revenge and strangled that bitch to death...alas, it was far too late for such notions now. She was still taken aback by the situation, however; Riqueti's arrest set off a chain of events that led to the Inquisition being destroyed, the deaths of countless comrades, her alienation from Orson and her exile to enemy country.
At the last minute, Garm caught the Sultan approaching quickly out the corner of her eye- the bastard was still alive and kicking, but was heavily wounded and delirious. He threw a powerful left hook that crashed right into Garm's jaw. She yelled out in pain and collapsed on the ground while rolling over. Her vision became completely blurry for a few seconds as she remarked at the sharp agony- Andres's Cybusian enhancements truly made him a beast not to be trifled with. Nevertheless, Garm was not completely incapable herself- while falling down, she grabbed her pistol, gritted her teeth and lunged forward. Garm pistol-whipped Andres right in his left eye and then fired a shot into his right thigh. The round was an explosive bullet, and its secondary detonation was powerful enough to shatter Andres's femur bone and shred the surrounding tissues, nearly severing the leg itself in two.
With the Sultan taken down again, Garm crouched down over Amira, panting heavily.
"You've...ruined everything," she said, her voice resembling a rattling wheeze due to exhaustion. "She was supposed to be smuggled to Orson...we would be welcomed as heroes. Our honor would be restored!"
Garm breathed in deeply as she grabbed Amira by her neck, lifting the Princess off the ground.
"If I can't have her...no one can." She then aimed the pistol right at Amira's temple, about the pull the trigger...
