    Operation: Asteroid Ambush / Eye of the Cobra
    Operation: Asteroid Ambush is a joint operation roleplaying event between the exotic tribals of the Winged Cobra Tribe (Wicotees), the covert agents of the Galactic Intelligence Agency (GIA), and the villains of the Relentless. The Wicote's and the GIA have a secret meeting in an asteroid belt. They want to exchange something very important, but the Relentless know about this meeting, and they ambush the participants, trying to grab all the loot.

    Everybody is welcome to join us in this event, choose whichever side you prefer!

    ==== GIA Communication ====

    We have a mission ahead of us agents. I have made contact with Chief Old Boar, a representative of the WiCoTe's at the Morgor Astronavigator's Inn. They have admitted being in possession of advanced, experimental technology cargo that was stolen by imperial scum last cycle. The recovery of this tech is a priority assignment.

    We have recently uncovered WiCoTe artefact's during routine seizures. The labs say it's safe so we've arranged an exchange. We do however have a potential problem...

    Our embedded agents in The Relentless villain organisation have revealed that the villains are aware of our plan, and are planning an ambush. The goal is clear, exchange the cargo, and get out of there. Any pirate casualties are totally acceptable.


    Director Smith

    ==== End Communication ====

    The Plan
    The plan is simple yet covert. We will meet with WiCoT representatives at a station, and head to the proposed exchange area. Do not drop your cover or reveal the cargo's, we do not want local security sniffing around. We will head off to a nearby asteroid field so we can do the exchange away from prying eyes. Once there jettison your cargo, secure their cargo drop and if necessary re-secure the theatre of operation.

    The GIA Plan in detail.
    1. Travel with the WiCoTe to the Asteroid Field.
    2. As soon as both carriers have arrived, secure the operational area (check your contacts)
    3. Once both carriers are on scene signal the drop and jettison your cargo. Wingmen and security secure the area.
    4. Carrier's are to then check their six, and collect the other container.
    5. Once cargo is collected, or if presented with sizeable resistance, bug out and meet at the station. Signal via Mumble that you are bugging out.

    We will all be present on the Mumble server (details below). We can talk privately inside our dedicated channels (GIA/Tribals). During the event proper we will be in the public channel (in character, minimal comm's, use 'codes' if required), simulating the compromised local comms network.

    It's a victory for us if we manage to exchange the cannisters and get away with them. [B]All participants will finish shooting (retract weapons) and jettison event cargo if they are under 30% hull[B]. After dropping players will have to flee. It will help to announce that you are out on the Mumble server.

    The details
    • The date is October 25-26 (the last weekend of the Beta 2).
    • Most of the participants will meet at 18:00 GMT and at 20:00 GMT.
    • We will play this scenario over and over again in the weekend, and count the victories and the defeats.
    • In order to make this work, we will play it in 'Private group' mode (we will start a new group under "fremen" on the day).
    • You can use the stock Sidewinder if you want to go easy on credits (but you don't have to if you have money for insurance).
    • There are separate channels for the 'Tribals', the 'GIA' agents and the 'Relentless' members on our Mumble voice server now, you can communicate and coordinate your movement there.
    • We will be meeting (to sort the instancing) at Beagle 2, Asellus Primus, and travelling to the nearest Resource Extraction site for the event. Beagle 2 is a NO FIRE ZONE for the event.

    Choose Your Side
    If you want to join us in this event, you can pick your side:
    A) Play with the nomadic Winged Cobra Tribe on the weekend! Ask Chief Old Boar (Koen) for instructions.
    B) Play with the covert ops Galactic Intelligence Agency on the event! Ask Director Blatant for details.
    C) Or play with the evil Relentless for this time! Ask Cmdr Fremen for more info.

    So guys,

    We're having a little get together tonight and tomorrow evening. Netcode Madness!

    Attachment 1542

    The idea is simple, it's just a get together for all the different groups. It's a peace summit! We're going to be putting the Net Code under quite some stress, so half the game will be joining and instancing.

    There will be a 'group photo' at 8pm, lets see if we can actually get more than 5 players in an instance!! Plus there will be all sorts of side entertainment I'm sure, such as general high jinx and :

    • Ship Fashion Show - Step up and show your ship off, strike a pose, get a high res selfie. A solid gold "Thats the Ship" award for the winner!
    • Stunt Flying Competition - Pilots are invited to challange each other to various feats, fly through the rings, fastest, closest pass, outrun the missile, etc. In a SKATE format, but with the word "ELITE"
    • Super Turbo Racing - Point A to B race, size divisions of Small (Sidey, Eagle, Hauler), Medium (Viper, Cobra, Type 6), Large (Asp, Anaconda, Type 9) and modified/stock contents. test out those sparkling new thrusters and power centers!!
    • Cage Fighting / Deathmatches - Spectator driven 1 on 1 fights by arrangement. Competitors fight 1 on 1 to 20% hull, the loser taps out, if the winner destroys them the spectators all punish the cheat with death!! An ideal way to even the score with other attendants without resorting to sanctions!
    • Deadly Sardines - How many peopl can we get into the letterbox of a coreallis station at the same time, without permission, before the station ruins the party? Guess we'll find out!!!!

    We will test 'Open' mode first, and if it doesn't work, then 'Private Group' mode.
    We will communicate on Mumble voice chat (download it here):
    Port: 64739
    Pass: villains

    Come one, come all. Member of a group? Come introduce yourself! Member of the GIA, come along for some fun and social gaming!!! Jump on mumble, find out where we are, lets get together and have a good time...

    I recommend that once the game launches, a website be created for the Agency. Also we could use a shout box of some sort, that way someone in charge could alert in-game players through use of a second screen by watching the shout box in one, and playing the game in the other.

    Hi Ploxbox,

    I agree that we need a website, and more specifically a dedicated forum, unfortunatly I am a Web Application Engineer and Lead Developer in my day job so am having an awful time finding time to put something quality together. It's like trying to get a plumber to fix their kitchen sink, if you do somehing all day its the last thing you want to do in the hour you get in the evening!

    There is a website soon. Also there is a mumble server available already. Kindly hosted by fremen of the Relentless. Us, the Winged Cobra's, Na'ama Wing and Relentless all use this mumble server, we have dedicated, private channels for each group and we can all chat publicly too. I think it really helps bring some of our smaller groups together, and in the process we game as a bigger unit of different roles. Oh, and we all hate griefers so that's something!

    Gamma Has Landed!

    Hi everyone, well Gamma's downloading right now! Exciting!!

    Would anyone (particularly Agents of the GIA) care to get together and start the great GIA Fund Raising Marathon???

    Remember, what we make in Gamma carries over to release so lets get a head start on all those would be release pirates, and try to keep up with the (ahem) "hardcore" villian and griefer backers!

    PM me, or come join our mumble server (details above) and say Hi!
