Re: OOC Thread - 17

Pistols only? Uniforms?

I'd rather not make too many assumptions.

Civies and sidearm for Walsh (as much as possible - his parka is Polish Army frog Camo)

In reply to Fusilier (msg # 913):

Is there a chance to do a little bit of shopping first before going out? Tosh wants to buy himself some form of knife that will fit in a pocket, ideally a flick knife or possibly a lock knife.

If so do you just want to handle this off camera?

Ta,

Andy.

Re: OOC Thread - 17

Since there are some people waiting back, I'd rather do only one (R&R or trading) on camera in the interest of time. And I'm pretty much done writing for the R&R (just can't post until I'm on wifi).

No worries. I'll park that for the moment.



Ok, Tosh will be wearing Goretex combat boots, patched, dark blue denim work trousers, a plain brown, heavy duty work shirt, a dark grey hooded sweatshirt and a dark green fleece with a camouflage beanie hat and gloves. He’ll be carrying a survival knife and scabbard and his M9 pistol with four fifteen round mags.

I think that's technically civies but he'll probably look like a soldier dressed in civies.

Re: OOC Thread - 17

Jan will be wearing Russian Army combat boots, Czech woodland pattern combat trousers, a black hooded sweatshirt, a brown woollen jumper and a black Polish Tanker’s winter jacket with fur lining. He’ll have a black woollen skull cap on his head and British Army issue thermal gloves on his hands. He’ll be carrying his Sig Sauer P226 with four fifteen round mags.

Deitrich will go along. He'll have his dark blue BGS-See uniform on that he wore to the burial and take his pistol and spare magazines. In his pocket is his handcuffs and 3 capsicum sprays.

Hank will hang back due to his injury and lack of non bloodstained clothing.

Re: OOC Thread - 17

Sorry Fuse. Is it too late to change my mind? Jose doesn’t have a sidearm or civ clothes, and I think he’s more interested in the stores anyway. Plus, the debriefing with Kessler and McCarthy.

Varis will go out. He doesn't have civilian clothes but he'll ask Kaminski if he can borrow some.

If Kaminski says no, Varis will wear his Soviet camouflage BDUs and go armed with his .45, fighting knife, and brass knuckles.

Per will stay behind. He wait to leave the compound until a trading party goes to visit the market/arms dealers. He will use the time surveying the compound's defenses and resting.

Schmidt will go out in uniform with sidearm, he's looking to do some shopping for clothes and creature comforts where possible.

Hank has a spare pistol for Jose if he's interested in still going?

Re: OOC Thread - 17

Thanks Hank, that’s kind. The way I worded my post was a little misleading. I mainly wanted to have Jose stay back to get a feel for the compound, stores, and have his briefings with Kessler and McCarthy. That’s what I get for trying to type stuff out at work. :)

Re: OOC Thread - 17

Fuse,

Has the Merchant Union (or someone else) managed to establish a surrogate currency yet? I seem to remember that the MU were trying to create one using printed meal vouchers. Is that right?

Ta,

Re: OOC Thread - 17

There is currency, that's why Kaminski said he had cash.

It's called Florin, it purposely devalues at 10% per month, has denominations of 1, 5, & 20, is not produced in enough quantity to replace the item barter system (only supplement it), and its value is backed by grain, ethanol, gold, and salt.

Would Ferro or anyone be able to tell if Kaminski is using counterfeit notes?

In reply to Ferro (msg # 930):

Someone with Forgery (I see you do) could. There are simple anti-counterfeit features on the note to help with that. But the difficulty would be heavily increased due to factors such as not having a genuine note for comparison, little familiarity with the note, bad lighting/no magnification, etc. It would be so difficult that you might start to run the risk of a false positive occurring almost as likely.

Sorry, the previous Florin image was an incorrect/old work in progress. This is what I was supposed to post:

Fantastic detail! Thanks for the info.

Just for scale how much does a meal cost in one of the eateries and how much is a beer in DMZ?

Re: OOC Thread - 17

Is it fair to assume that Jose would have had the briefings with Kessler and JJM while back at base, or should I try to RP out the start of them? I think there's a few questions that I can ask IC while assuming that the rest of the briefings took place behind the scenes.

I'll post an IC reply from Varis to Walsh when I get home this afternoon. I feel awkward writing R-rated posts on a work computer. ;)

I think it's probably best if the full briefing is assumed rather than played out. That way we can presume that the new characters know what’s in the intel threads without worrying about something getting missed.

I can put Kessler in the rec room where Jose can 'find' him and ask any questions if you want. That way the scene will be open for McCarthy, Kolstrup / Voight or anyone else that wants to jump in. I'll work something up now.
