Also I am terribly amused that I accidentally made a character who technically owns the Empire and doesn't know it.
I'm amused that jmurrell accidentally created both the character whom the Emperor Emeritus asked to keep her out of trouble and the character whom the Director of the Secret Service told to shoot her if she claimed it.

I believe that Cpl. McAdams may be what puts the "unflappable" in "unflappable exponent of the controlled use of violence". Besides he'll just deftly and invisibly maneuver Lt. Strickland into dealing with the CoC and just rescue her already.

Anymore development for Tomiko and I'm going to have to put her behind a spoiler tag to get her to fit. What about everybody else?

Also if it hasn't been noted, I've filled in all the blanks in post #72 and await editorial oversight.

Yup. Tomiko Eichberger has been fun, but in the end the junior naval officers and the marines are less important characters than the people at the big table and the Survey boffins. Also, the boffins need most work done on them, as (among other things) they are least defined and constrained by naval and military standards.

Editorial oversight waits on lunch.

Editorial oversight would like to point out that according to established history, one Mikhail Eichberger is on course to become Chairman of the Imperial Council in 560 and retire in 571. The future is subject to change, of course, but he retires in 571 so he must have been born in 461. Who is he to Tomiko? Older brother? Cousin? she can't be the sole heir after all.

Who was he originally supposed to be? Tomiko can certainly have a brother or cousin. Born in 461 makes him 11 years older.

So does the Strickland count towards Survey's fearless foursome? And the Dean as well?

Currently the Dean, Rabin, Haroldsson are all social scientists of some sort. Are we going to call this the social survey team? Or do we need to adjust Rabin and Haroldsson so one is Chief of Social Sciences and one Chief of Life Sciences? And is anyone a doctor?

I see Rabin as a psychologist, but I could fit that in as part of a medical background Hi Ducky! and switch him to the Life Science side.

Seems so.

Strickland is HUMINT, and clearly also all about social survey.

Besides I gather Brett's more interested in human-versus-human and colonial-versus-empire conflict than impersonal struggles against nature or in xenobiological or geophysical science puzzles.

Strickland does. Whether the Dean does is player's choice. Does Luke want to play another character in the field and leave his merchant-adventurer strictly at the big table?

Either choice works for me.

Quote:

There ought to be an epidemiologist along to assess whether the colony needs the help of the Public Health Service, who ought to be a medico and double as Ship's surgeon. But an NPC will take the role if no-one wants to play it.

Just as you say.

Exactly so. And my hat agrees.
