Council Roll Call by RPWorldRPWorld, 28 Sep 2008 08:15

I'm okay with a few minor injuries on either side, but I don't think there should be any deaths yet. We need to keep civilian death as a result of military action for another time.

Re: Episode Three by RPWorldRPWorld, 14 Sep 2008 11:16

Looks like Capt. Caber is anticipating a riot in the port hanger bay.

Any thoughts?

I think it's fine to have one, but I have an objection to having any casualties. Not opposed to having people thrown in the brig though. :)

Re: Episode Three by JasraLantillJasraLantill, 12 Sep 2008 15:40

I like that idea. I don't have any objections.

Re: Episode Three by RPWorldRPWorld, 10 Sep 2008 08:22

Ok, so if we're killing off the President (eventually, that is) then I'm going to have Rondelle (and Victor) push for a declaration of martial law under Commander Blake until things are more stable to hold an election. Of course, there should be a civilian liaison to relay civilian problems to Blake and to quiet any resistance from the civvies.

That sound ok to you guys?

I don't know Jas *ponders* I'd really like an active PC to be the President. In all fairness we've carried Jacob's character a long while now. I think it is time to let her go. It is a sad decision, but we also have to set an example for others and send a clear message:

"Real life happens and we understand that, but the game moves on. If you do not let us know about a LOA or even that you'll be a little too busy to play then we'll move along without you. You're perfectly welcome to rejoin, but don't expect the same character or position to be available once you do."

I think she should be in a coma and and the prognosis should be bad; like she's dying bad. This will also set us up for some really cool internal strife as the issue of leadership gets resolved. It doesn't have to be resolved immediately, but there should be a crisis rather than us covering it up.

Re: Episode Three by RPWorldRPWorld, 26 Aug 2008 06:09

I'm okay with that suggestion, since it seems fairly workable without having to completely off the President. It's not perfect, as an active President would be ideal, but we can work around it for now until Jacob gets back or we find someone else willing to be the Prez (o Lee Adama, wherefore are thou? :p)

Just let me know what we decide, so I can have my Cadence character give someone the bad/maybe not so bad news. ;)

Re: Episode Three by NinerNiner, 25 Aug 2008 19:34

Ok, I'm going to open the discussion as to what to do with the President. Jacob hasn't logged on the site in ages, so I'm assuming that he's no longer interested in participating in the SIMM. However, his character President Jackson is an integral character to the story. We've 'incapacitated' her for the moment, but I for one don't really want to put her in a long-term coma like we did the XO. (Too soap opera like for me. ;) ) Keeping her unconscious for short time would work though, and would make it easier for Blake to establish some sort of martial law while she's unable to do her duties.

For a longer-term solution I had an idea to make the President bedridden, say in traction with a broken hip or back or something, or maybe even a paraplegic, but still conscious and able to make decisions. If we make her an NPC and keep her in the Megaera sick bay for the time being, she can interact with the rest of the characters by notes or wireless or even have characters go to the sickbay to visit her. Eventually, the civilians will want to have an election for a new Quorum and a new President so we could get rid of her then if we like.

Any other ideas on what to do with her? I'd like to have some sort of game plan before we get too far into the new episode.

Battlestar Megaera
Episode 03
Y 21356

Hide and Seek

Lords of Kobol
Deliver us from our enemies
Who seek to harm Your chosen people
Shelter us with Your mercy
And make our warriors
The instruments of Your wrath

The ragtag fleet of refugees, guarded by a lone Battlestar, must escape the Ingazi Patch and a trap set for them by the Cylon. Even if they manage this, where will they go?

The President is incapacitated and the Colonials face a crisis of leadership. Many civilians do not entirely trust the military and unrest threatens the very survival of humanity.
