The ilKhan was Pestilence, with Doll and her hubby can't remember his name, and Santini.
I remember in one of our practice sessions cooking Santini in his mech with my load out of flamers.



Hmm I don't remember being ilKhan for CDS, suppose that could have been. Before I was poolboy I was Pestilence....but I do remember being in Diamond Shark.

Recruitment Center / The Alpha Wolves are recruiting!
« Last post by Mightyrant Kell on Today at 12:40:24 PM »

The Alpha Wolves are recruiting!

Who we are:
We are a close knit group of players.  We value integrity on and off the battlefield, and strive to be the best players we can be.  Our numbers may be few, but every member is trusted and battle hardened.  Many of us have come from the ranks of Clan Wolf in the past, hence the name.  The Alpha Wolves have a long history in this community.  Winners of the MRBC Div-C title from a few seasons ago, we have players familiar with competitive play. 

The ways we play:

Our main focus at the moment is striving to become a team well known in the competitive scene.  Currently we play in the NBT league.  A semi comp league where we control Clan Wolf in a crusade across the Inner Sphere.  During the next season, we plan to field a team for MRBC as well, aiming for Div C or possibly B.  We drop many quick play matches to hone our skills, and drop in CW on occasion as a mercenary unit.

What we are looking for:
The Alpha Wolves are recruiting right now to fill out our roster for the coming MRBC season.  We have enough to make a team, but are seeking more for practice and player rotation.  We are searching for players with a eye for competitive play.  We need team players, not lone wolves, to help improve our team in every way.  If you feel like your skills are under utilized on your current team, or feel as if you need to find a new home for any hope of reaching new heights, we may have a home for you.  We expect our players to have a high level of activity in the game. 

What we can offer you:
The Alpha Wolves provide a friendly but serious environment.  People can be found online to play daily during NA prime time.  We offer the chance to practice and hone you skills with us in practice matches, and the chance to showcase you skills in a competitive theater.  We have a wealth of knowledge about competitive mechs and load outs and are willing to share with people interested in joining. 

Application:
Again, we are looking for players that enjoy the more competitive aspect of Mechwarrior, with an eye for league play.  If quick play or CW is all you know, but want to play for something more, we may be the team for you.  If you think this sounds like a team you would be interested in, please feel free to send me a message on here or add me in-game.

BattleTech/Mechwarrior Role-Play / A Time of Reckoning
« Last post by Harper Steel on Yesterday at 07:08:17 PM »

November 11th, 3062
Arc Royal Defense Cordon
Pirate Jump point: Morges

The Blue-green world slowly rotated below the massive Texas-Class Warship, Falcon's Nest. A large Jade Falcon symbol was proudly displayed along the side of the huge hull.  Massing over 1.5 million tons and 1200 meters long the ship was huge. Along the top of the crafts spine a row of six egg shaped dropships were nestled into their cradles. Each one filled with over one-hundred Omnimechs of the 79th Raptor Talon Cluster. Star Commander Geg stood on the highest tier catwalk in the cavernous bridge of the Warship. He was looking out the huge ten-meter high view screens, the armor covering had been retracted and the world of Morges was before Geg. White clouds swirled over blue oceans, he could see the lightning flashes of a large storm near the edge of the planet. The Jade Falcon Officer turned from the fantastic view and looked over the edge, far below at a halo-table Star Captain Rekkon Roshak was working a briefing for the upcoming combat drops. Star Colonel Vtine slowly descended to the deck before Rekkon, he too began looking at the simulation taking shape there. With expert moves Geg flipped over the railing and plunged straight downwards toward his fellow officers, At the last moment he flipped and landed gently on his feet next to Vtine. The Star Colonel smiled at his officer,"  We are ready to execute operation Puppy Stomp Geg, on your command."

Rekkon finished his simulation and briefing then sent both off to the combat troops he looked up as the Halo-Table cleared and spoke, " I have given our first combat pilots a pre-briefing simulation for them to review one last time. Their officers have them loaded in their Omnimechs. We are ready to go Geg."

Star Commander Geg was going to be the Theater Commander for the entire operation with Rekkon acting as his co-commander. Star Colonel Vtine was the 79th Raptor Talon Cluster's second in command and he was in charge of the Warships assigned to Operation Puppy Stomp. He had a Texas-class battleship, two Aegis-class heavy cruisers, two Congress-class frigates and a Fredasa-class corvette. Vtine had his ships harassing the Defense Cordon and the Wolves in Exiles warships, keeping them out of the fight.

Geg gripped the railing surrounding the table reaching with his other hand he opened a ship-wipe comm channel, " Officers and Warriors this day we take what small amount of Honor these lost puppies have left. We shall deprive them of their home sector and factories. They have lost the way of the Clans and the 79th Raptor Talon's will show them the true nature of their error."

"Seyla," echoed around the bridge.

"Gentleman shall we adjoin to our battlemechs," Geg graciously said to his commanders. All three moved off toward the turbo lift.

The pumpkin president sat in his golden elevator, looking at the rest of the abbsndoned tower he owned. Abbandoned.... well except for the piles and piles of hatemail. The ex president sat so still that if anyone had been watching for the past hour, they would have thought hed either turned to stone, or passed away. Without any warning though, the ex president stood up.

"FUCK IT IM MOVING TO MARIK"

The old man gathered his trophies and gold into a big old suitcase, and was just about to walk out the door when he smelled smoke. A girl with a chubby body and bright red hair stood before him. Oh god, he thought to himself, the sjws are here.....


Later that night he died screaming.

Mischa Karmoulitis, Political Analyst, Outworlds Foundation: Good evening from the Comstar studios and all praise to Blake! We have brought you ongoing coverage of the impeachment proceedings in the Outworlds Alliance over the past few days but now even more shocking news has been released. In a speech before the OWA Parliament just moments ago, President of the Parliament Naterist has announced that he is resigning.


Broadcast from Alpheratz:



This is the 37th time I have spoken to you from this office, where so many decisions have been made that shape the history of this great, great nation. In all the decisions I have made in my public life I have always tried to do what was best for the Outworlds Alliance.

Throughout the long and difficult period of this media-created fake news witch hunt, I have felt it was my duty to persevere -- to make every possible effort to continue the term of office to which our great citizens elected me and to keep working to make the OWA great again. In the past few days, however, it has become evident to me that I no longer have a strong enough political base in the Parliament to justify continuing that effort. Boys will be boys and men will be men. I do not feel that I have done anything that I shouldn’t have while serving our great people. Hard-working men play hard too and for any of you and the treacherous fake-news media to think you can slap me on the wrist and make me behave like you are my boss well I have one thing to say to you. You’re WRONG. WRONG.


I think everyone here knows that I am extremely well-off. To be blunt, I am rich and successful. If I want girls, I get girls. This young lady, Ashley, whom you have brought in here and talked into saying all these bad things about me, just take a look at this girl. Just look at these holopics my media guy is displaying. She’s cute. She has great hair, a great rack, a great ass.
 


But guess what, I don’t have to be President of the Parliament to get girls that like. I can have 10 of the most premium young hotties lined up in my office at any time. Any time! I’m rich, I have great hair, I am famous and obviously I do very well with the ladies.

To leave office before my term is completed is abhorrent to every instinct in my body. But as President, I must put the interests of Outworlds Alliance first.

The Outworlds Alliance needs a full-time President and a full-time Parliament, particularly at this time with problems we face at home and abroad. To continue to fight through the months ahead for my personal vindication would almost totally absorb the time and attention of both the President and the Parliament in a period when our entire focus should be on the great issues of peace abroad, prosperity at home and making the Outworlds Alliance great again.

You think you can have some impeachment proceeding here and take a vote and bang a gavel and fire ME? WRONG!


You can’t fire me because I quit first! You’re the ones that are fired, I’m out! I shall resign the Presidency of the Parliament effective at noon tomorrow and get back to being rich and successful and hooking up with the most beautiful women in the universe, floating down an artificial river filled with premium liquor in a gold barge loaded with hot call-girls and the finest coke in the entire Inner Sphere while my beautiful model wife willingly steers the whole thing and keeps an eye on the kids to keep them out of the nose-candy.


Good luck finding someone with the savvy, the brains, the genius ideas, the extremely big IQ, large hands and amazing taste in decorating and women to pick up where I left off.

NEWS FLASH - IMPEACHMENT HEARINGS IN THE OUTWORLDS ALLIANCE



Mischa Karmoulitis, Political Analyst, Outworlds Foundation: Good morning! We have breaking news on events in the Outworlds Alliance. Reports now confirm that a special session of the Outworlds Alliance Parliament has been convened to debate impeachment proceedings against President of the Parliament Naterist!



Mischa Karmoulitis, Political Analyst, Outworlds Foundation: The President's remaining allies in Parliament have lined up a series of declarations which most analysts expect to be used as filibusters. They hope to stretch these declaratory speeches out so long that they fill up all of the time allotted for the special session, thereby derailing the impeachment. It remains to be seen if this tactic will stand up against what appears to be a solid majority of Parliament Members who wish to hear the accusations against President Naterist in detail, including testimony from a young woman who claims that the President snorted cocaine from her "rear" while discussing military planning with top officials. The picture on-screen is a photo of this young lady that we found on an extranet site offering high-priced call girls on Alpheratz.

BattleTech/Mechwarrior Role-Play / Eridani Light Horse - Closing a Chapter
« Last post by Xannatharr on November 14, 2017, 02:14:11 PM »
Nadir Jumpoint, Tikonov System
11/14/3062



GDH Crash pressed his face against the small round porthole of the commercial dropship, looking back at the Outworlds Alliance JumpShips docked at the Tikonov Charging Station. Soon the OWA ships would be finished charging and would jump to the next Fed Suns Charging Station on their long journey back to Alpheratz.

Crash had been in the room when Puggs Hunter, the senior OWA official deployed with the small flotilla received the recall order from Alliance Military High Command. All Outworlds Alliance forces in Federated Suns and Capellan space were ordered to suspend offensive operations and return home as quickly as possible. Puggs didn't explain exactly what was going on, but it was clear that some sort of political change had occurred.

There was a quiet going-away party in the wardroom of the command dropship that involved a lot of drinking, handshaking and a few heartfelt hugs from the RSOR and G_NOX mechwarriors that Crash had gotten to know so well. Finally, the flotilla had arrived at Tikonov and Crash transferred to a commercial ship that would deliver him to the next Eridani Light Horse JumpShip to pass through the system.

Shaking his head sadly, Crash pulled out his mincomp and began typing up his last report to Command.

 
***********************************************************************************

To Commander, ELH
From OWA Liaison Officer, GDH Crash
Operational Report: Outworlds Alliance Operations terminated

Digest: Under orders from civilian authorities, OWA forces are departing from all operational sectors.

All RSOR and G_NOX personnel are headed back to Alpheratz as quickly as is practical. Liason Officer has been released from duty and will await pickup at Tikonov.

Final report concluded.

Mischa Karmoulitis, Political Analyst, Outworlds Foundation: Hello and welcome to a special report from Comstar News Network. With interstellar news being so active today I have been asked to stand in for Brother Augustus Grim, Lead Anchor. I trust that the Wisdom of Blake will guide me as I bring you this report.


Mischa Karmoulitis, Political Analyst, Outworlds Foundation: Chaos reigns on Alpheratz tonight as allegations of misconduct against the President of Parliament are brought to light. Several Advisors who were recently fired by the President have come forth with claims that the President has been on a drug-fueled binge with Capellan prostitutes ever since he took office. There are reports that a special session of Parliament is being convened and rumors abound that an Impeachment might be in the air. The President's allies in the Parliament are trying to stop the proceedings but are facing heavy opposition even within their own party.


Mischa Karmoulitis, Political Analyst, Outworlds Foundation: When we asked the President's Press Secretary for a response to these allegations, his prepared statement was interrupted by the President himself, who came to the podium and seized the microphone.



Mischa Karmoulitis, Political Analyst, Outworlds Foundation: What the President said was very difficult to understand, but we hope to have a full translation and recording of the speech to share with you later tonight.

Until then, thanks for watching Comstar News!

Brother Augustus Grim, Lead Anchor: In the interest of sharing and preserving knowledge as taught by Holy Blake, we bring you a special report on a little-reported conflict between two states who were formerly partners in the Trinity Alliance - the Capellan Confederation and the Taurian Concordat. The third member of the Trinity Alliance, the Magistracy of Canopus, has not formally repudiated the treaty but has also not taken sides in the fighting. Here to shed light on these events are two of our most respected experts, Retired Comguard General Anders Storn and Aiko Suzue, Visiting Scholar of Interstellar Relations at Trinity University of Tharkad.

General Anders Storn (retired), Comguard            Aiko Suzue, Trinity University of Tharkad


General Anders Storn (retired), Comguard: Thank you for having me on Brother Grim and all due praise to Blake. Miss Suzue would you like to share what we were discussing before the program?

Aiko Suzue, Trinity University of Tharkad: Yes, thank you General Storn and thank you as well Brother Grim! What we were discussing is that while we have all seen the many headlines about the Draconis Combine retaking Alshain, heavy fighting along the Cappellan-FedSuns border, battles in the Chaos March and of course JarnFolk and mercenary engagements all over the Inner Spehere we have heard next to nothing about possibly the most brutal military campaign in human space. I am referring to the recent eruption of all-out War between the Capellan Confederation and the Taurian Concordat.



General Anders Storn (retired), Comguard: That's right Miss Suzue. Reports indicate that some of the most bitter fighting seen since the Fourth Succession War has broken out between House Liao and the Taurians. Since September there has been no less than nine major battles between the these factions, including no less than three major Sector Assaults. Casualties in first-line Battlemechs are already estimated at over 150 machines on each side and could be even higher. Although we have not heard reports of any intentional atrocities, the lives of citizens on both sides of the border in the Zanzibar, Menke, Borden, Pinard and Victoria Sectors have certainly suffered major disruptions.

As you can see on the map the Capellans, shown in green, have launched raids and major assaults on Concordat space. Meanwhile the Taurian Concordat forces, shown in red, have fought back hard and launched their own large-scale invasion into the Capellan's Zanzibar Sector. The fighting there continues right now and early reports indicates that the sides are deadlocked in desperate battles.


Brother Augustus Grim, Lead Anchor: It was only a few years ago that Sun-Tzu Liao of the CapCon, Protector Jeffrey Calderon of the Taurian Concordat and Magestrix Emma Centrella of the MoC agreed to form the Trinity Alliance. And for centuries the Taurians have warred with the Federated Suns but now they seem to have cast aside the Trinity Alliance and there are even reports that they have entered into serious negotiations for a partnership  with House Davion. How could the Capellans and Taurians go from firm allies to full-scale war so quickly?

Aiko Suzue, Trinity University of Tharkad: Brother Grim, there is a good reason for this sudden reversal in the Taurian's relationship with House Liao. Sources inside the Taurian Concordat indicate that House Liao was behind last year's terrorist attack on Detroit that resulted in the death of Protector Jeffrey Calderon. In the chaos following the Protector's death, Grover Shraplen took over leadership of the Concordat.  But just months ago Marshal Cham Kithrong and the Taurian Defense Forces deposed Shraplen and published what they believe is proof that he was an agent of the Capellan Confederation. For now the TDF is firmly in charge of the Taurian Concordat and all reports indicate that the citizens of the Concordat support Marshal Kithrong and wish to see House Liao punished for their interference in Taurian affairs. 

Jeffrey Calderon, Protector of the Taurian Concordat 3055-3061

Brother Augustus Grim, Lead Anchor: That certainly explains the sudden reversal of Taurian-Capellan relations and provides some context into why the fighting between these two powers has been so intense. General Storn, do you believe that the Taurians stand a chance against the Capellan Confederation?

General Anders Storn (retired), Comguard: Time will tell, but so far by all accounts the Taurians have been inflicting just as much punishment on the CCAF as they the Capellans have inflicted on the TDF. And with the Capellan Confederation locked in a series of battles with the Federated Suns around Tikonov, it may be that they cannot spare enough of their strength to deal with the Taurians.

Brother Augustus Grim, Lead Anchor: As always, I would to thank our esteemed guests for their commentary. Now, we will share a recent interview granted by a spokesman for the the Taurian Defense Forces, Marshal Igor Kozyrev:



Question from the Editors: Some of our viewers may not understand the events that led to your war with the Capellans. Can you explain?

Marshal Igor Kozyrev: The comprehensive answer to that question has been given in this press release: http://www.nbt-mwo.com/forum/index.php/topic,1358.0.html 

But to quickly summarize, we discovered that House Liao was behind death of our leader and planted a puppet leader to use our resources for their benefit. We discovered it in time and turned against the treacherous bastards.


Question from the Editors: Did you decide to abandon the Trinity Alliance with the Capellans and MoC?

Marshal Igor Kozyrev: We have no ill will towards the MoC's current standings with CapCon, but we obviously made a 180 turn with House Liao. More to that, we've decided to put aside age long turmoil with FedSuns to be able to act against CapCon without need to worry about our flanks. Enemy of my enemy and such…

Question from the Editors:What have been the most critical battles of your war with the CapCon so far?

Marshal Igor Kozyrev:Critical battles are yet to be fought. First few engagements were prepared in haste and thus turned out surprisingly difficult, but we adapted quickly and now make steady progress. I'm not allowed to say that, but with the help of "allies" (and I'm not saying whose allies they are - UPTO's or Iron Oath's), we are now in possesion of extremely valuable information and we have a clear plan of actions which doesn't leave Liao any chance of winning. They might not understand that yet, but soon they will.



Brother Augustus Grim, Lead Anchor: Many thanks to Marshal Kozyrev for agreeing to an interview. Our requests to the Capellan Confederation for a similar interview have not yet been fulfilled. In the Name of Blake, good night.
