Yeah, actually my least favourite would be episode 18 of your second season. For obvious reasons... To quote my character "I'm a Pirate who's highly against these sort of establishments."

Actually my problem with it was not much was accomplished in the episode. Just wolfhide being arrested at the end after taking out a guy tank was sent after.

Oh, and if it helps I for one enjoyed and applaud the ending of Max Power. It was very fitting and honestly rocked the insurgency more than if Qoter was destroyed.



My least favorite episodes are my own. Everything before T.I. #7 I hate because photo quality and size

Anyone shown the governor of Rerador?

I don't have all of this fully planned yet but I'm thinking about a background plot in season 2 showing a revolutionary war on Rerador similar to the real life American Revolution... Rerador's Corsair probe would be involved somehow, maybe Governor Boan would need to take some action since it is a colony of Qoter. I think it can be made into a big thing so I wouldn't mind some help on it from you guys if you're up for it.

Unless it's not a good idea/wouldn't work very well... I'm fine with scrapping it for something else

Pretty interesting. I was also thinking about something with Ossilium miners.

So my idea is Qoter is over taxing Rerador to pay off their debts (pretty much the same as the real life revolution) and after some resistance from the people of Rerador, the Qoter military is sent to occupy them. Eventually violence occurs and it becomes Qoter vs Rerador. Would a declaration of war be alright considering there's already the GI and Aurelia war going on?

You mean the American one right?

It would make a little more sense in my opinion for them to secede from the GI and become Aurelian colonies. I mean there's already a revolution going on that hates the GI's ways so it might be better for the planet to just change sides...


But that's just my two cents on the matter...

That's another route I guess. In my mind it was more about independence from Qoter's government (would have to establish that they aren't independent) than independence from the whole GI.

Actually I was thinking that a planet changing sides/being taken by one faction would show some progression in the war since there hasn't been too much of that. Up to the admins of course

So what's the word on the Rerador stuff...?

And actually I notice in the planet descriptions it says neutral/GI for Rerador in one place and Aurelia in another...

Oh! Sorry. Yeah, it sounds good to me.

Where does it say Aurelian?

There is a few laws that I'll be bringing up soon-ish, regarding the Core. However, some of them may be considered spoiler-y. the two I can reveal are as follows:

- No member of the Core can be held captive, without reason, in an Imperial prison. One cannot be a prisoner for the sole reason of previously being an assassin.

- All previous 'criminal' acts performed by members of the Core (breaking and entering etc) are considered null and void up until the point of the Core's closure.

However, as the Core is a closely guarded secret, these rules are noted as a code on certain legal documents, a code which judges are trained to recognize, though not trained in what the origins of the code are.

So, I was in the SWRP group, and some people tried to explain what all the factions are in the insurgency are. As I joke I wrote my own descriptions, each with a negative connotation to it.

XD

The Imperium is a cruel dictatorship that rules through fear and intimidation, while also condoning crazed experimentation.

Aurelia is a bunch of godless terrorists.

The Marauders are a bunch of bloodthirsty thugs and savages.

And the Collective are a group of maniacal Warlords, destroying everything they touch.

Science, a sci-fi writers worst enemy. :P (Ironically enough...)

This is interesting, so there are actually two types of sci-fi:

There's the logical man's sci-fi, which is what you'd see in some of the early Star trek episodes- you know they come to a planet where there are these warriors who just came back from a war that ended and the ruling powers don't know what to do with them all -- and OH by the way, the Vietnam war had just ended and America was in the same boat -- And the Captain suggests a plan of action based on his having encountered a similar situation on another planet or some data on an "ancient" earth war and how that government might have handled it. Jules Verne wrote this kind of Science-fiction as well, but in his case science was a good friend, and he actually predicted certain events in science like the invention of plastic and the internet and such. A common theme in this kind of Sci-fi is deliberately addressing a moral/ethical question which is pertinent to the world scene at that time. Using the example of Verne's novel "20,000 leagues under the sea" here; what was at least one of his purposes? Well simply put, he was addressing several topics one I chose was the roles of science versus nature- which one should be on top? Another might be the ethical issue of the devastating affects that one mega earthquake to-end-all-earth-quakes would have on people, would Captain Neemo (I think I spelled that name wrong.) REALLY be saving more lives than he'd be endangering/ending?

The other type is nothing more than Bonanza in space. Good guys chasing the bad guys -- A regular shoot 'em up western set in space. Like Gunsmoke or the Lone Ranger, they dodn't care about getting the legal forms right, or which side of the boarder they're on, they just get them bad guys an' jail 'em up. They don't care about distance, they knew that that train got you so far south and then you were across the boarder, they didn't think about its having been a distance of seventy-five miles.

That just translates to make up for more than half of today's sci-fi, which makes any confusion understandable.

The science discussion here is interesting. The most obvious way to differentiate between what I'd call science-fiction and science-fantasy is to use Star Trek and Star Wars. Star Trek is science-fiction, that is to say, fiction based around potential science. Everything in Star Trek is, generally, explained by plausible, if far-fetched, real science, and the universe tries to be consistent within itself and with logic. Star Wars, on the other hand, is a fantasy story that just so happens to be set in a scientifically-advanced universe, where nothing has to make sense scientifically because it's all magic and has never pretended to make sense.
This brings us to an interesting problem within the Insurgency, because it begs the question, are we science-fiction or fantasy? The answer is, of course, it depends on the story; mine is very squarely science-fantasy.

I like to think of mine as science-fantasy, but I do try to be as factual with things as I can, like the 'no sound in space' rule, as well as the injuries that would be sustained when certain people do certain things.

But I'm powering through it and now luckily I'm closer to finishing. I really wanted to do a stop motion trailer for the season a while ago but I think it's just too much effort and not worth it... :p

Well, I do hope that you can get your new season started soon. I very much enjoyed what you've done so far, and I'm looking forward to more.

I've got to agree with Benjamin here; I hope you're able to get it started again! Your series really is fantastic, and I'm looking forward to seeing more from the guys of the IIA!

So, that Solo trailer, eh? :D I know it's been dogged with rumours of problems and controversy, but it's more Star Wars, and Disney hasn't put a foot wrong yet (and I don't know just mean the movies - all the post-Disney books and comics, as well as Rebels, are of a pretty solid quality too!) so I have no reason to believe they will now, and I'm pretty excited!

Honestly, I'm not that hyped about it, though maybe that's because I want to be surprised by it.

Still, it's hard to ignore all the issues that they've faced, but I think my main issue is that it feels...unnessessary. I didn't really care where Han came from all that much, all that mattered was his overall character in the Orig-Trig and Force Awakens.

However, having said that, the trailer did look rather entertaining. I don't think it's going to be bad; I just think it won't be the best movie they could have made.

Alright, so I am of the opinion that you should enjoy your writing. If you don't enjoy it, your readers won't.

If you can't feel it or if you simply lost interest in the story, then like it or not, the readers will see it in the way you write it and they too will lose interest.

If you don't like how you wrote it, how much more will your readers dislike it? A possible reason you don't like what you've written is because you've lost interest; you're likely not writing like the same old you. Don't try to force the story, or creativity! It doesn't works out for most any writer.

Iris has a good point, taking a break is not a bad thing! Relaxing, and reading is a good way to get on the rebound. observing your surroundings is a good thing as well, sometimes old Grampa Joe can teach you more in how he acts than any book ever could.;)

Hope this helps!

So guys, a friend of mine (Ron L. Mitchell, he's a member here as well) has recently created a Fan-Group based around the two Decisive Action war games that were played on MOCpages a few years ago. The group is a place to reminisce for past players, but also a place to welcome new members as Decisive Action 3 is on the horizon!

Personally, I highly recommend joining the game when it starts up, even if time is short. It was honestly one of the most memorable experiences on the Pages that I've been a part of, the other being this group.

I watched the movie American Made and some of the beginning bits reminded me of my first few episodes. The two characters in the movie played by Tom Cruise and Domnhall Gleeson also look like William and Dane and there’s the whole thing with the CIA getting help from a civilian. After that it’s not similar but it’s a good movie. Probably wouldn’t recommend if you’re younger though since it’s rated R :P

Seeing as we're talking movies, I might as well add that I watched Black Panther the other night. And loved it!

The good: The cast is fantastic, the action was enjoyable and the overall style of the movie (blending technology with tradition) was very unique and awesome to watch! Quite a few jokes and references as well, and the message/ themes of the movie were nailed throughout it's runtime!

The bad: Very little. I did feel the main story was a tad predictable, and I think Andy Serkis deserved a little more screen time.

Overall ranking: Whilst I do think I prefer Thor Ragnarok (Korg for the win), this film is easily in my top five favourite Marvel movies. Would definitely recommend a watch for all fellow Insurgency members!

Same here, actually. The last few weeks, I've been in the middle of a move, and switching jobs to a new one where I'm moving to. That's why I haven't been around much. If I get lucky, hopefully my next build will be out this weekend, but if not, it should be sometime next week.

My official job title is Games Master. (Fancy right. ;P ) I work at an Escape Games company. For those who don't know what escape games are, basically, you get locked in a room for an hour and have to solve puzzles and complete challenges and undo locks in order to escape! Each room has a different theme and basically, I'm the guy who locks you in and then gives clues if players get stuck!
It's great fun!

Really? My family loves doing those! We have one here in Maine that we've gone to a few times.

Yeah! They're great!

If there is anyone here who hasn't done one, I highly recommend them. They are a great experience and each one is different. They can be a little pricey, but they are a lot of fun and something very different to try out.

Really wanted to keep the an episode every Sunday thing going but can't do it this week :p It actually took longer than expected to write but I think it will be an interesting one... You know those horror type movies where there's a monster that picks people off in a base or something.. It'll be kind of like that. I've been wanting to do that one for a long time

Ooh yeah! Sounds good! I know what taking time is like. I have hardly any spare time atm. So I'm still midway through writing my next episode, let alone starting to build. I wanted to release 2 episodes a month, but at this rate it's more like 1 a month and there are 26 (planned) episodes in Season 4, and 12 months in a year... you do the maths. Season 4 is going to take a while. :/ Haha.

Since it's been somewhat quiet (unless you count people talking about it being quiet. :P) I'll give a status update.

I have an episode in the works. It is going to be a league build. (Yes, I'm finally doing another league build. :P) I have an idea of what I want to do. The reason it's taken so long thus far is because I got writer's block so I did that thing where you leave and come back. But I think I might have left for longer than I should have...

So previously I was under the impression travel there needed a warp drive but now I know about the loopholes lol. I've been considering showing System 55 stuff but it's a little harder to fit into my story and the main reason is the war is not over there and also the Imperium (or at least the IIA) doesn't really have a presence there nor does it really need to

Very simple for me; it just wouldn't work with the characters right now. Besides, there's still a lot to explore in System 54 at the moment.

That being said, I do have a HUGE plotline set in System 55, that'll hopefully start soon. :D
