AG - Introduction and Discussion

Recommended Posts

Hey!

I've probably read this page like 20 times and I'm still confused on what to do. (Noob alert).

I understand the backstory and that you have to join a group. But I have no other idea what to do from there. If someone could help that'd be great.

Thanks, and I can't wait to play this awesome game.

Sounds like you are in the same position as the rest of us.

Right now, we're all just waiting until Bob shares details of the upcoming game with us.  Besides that, all you can do is develop some characters and post some stories following the Prologue Rules to gain some small bonuses before the game starts.  The great part of about this is that you can create a new character and use the prologue MOC/story as an introduction.

Here are some ideas:

1) Your character(s) are planning to join a corporation and are in the process of applying for jobs.  You can post about their job interview process.

2) Your character(s) are already on their way to investigate what happened to Andromeda and you can post about what they find...perhaps they work for a shadowy employer who later turns out to be the corporation you join once the game starts.

3) Your character(s) are working at the corporate headquarters in their cubicles and are mostly bored waiting for the all clear signal to head back to Andromeda.  They stand around the water cooler and talk about the latest episode of My Boyfriend is a Brick Separator.

4) Your character(s) decide to take yoga and pilates classes to work on their physical condition in preparation for a trip to Andromeda.  This is a great opportunity for your minifigures to demonstrate downward facing dog and warrior stance.

I hope you get the idea.

A personal favourite for me not mentioned above was @mccoyed. He didn't do many but the builds were quality and the character an absolute gem that I desperately want to cameo in my storyline at some point

Haha that's super nice of you to say, LucByard. I sorta miss AG and Koro. Might have to come back.

Thanks for the ideas to get our characters out there @pombe:laugh:

One question, where there is the best place to read about the radiation "incident" that occurred at the end of AG1? I tried looking in the AG1 archives but there are so many MOCs it's hard to find it.

I don't think there was anything about it in AG1.  I think it was introduced by Bob in the Prologue topic to reset the universe in preparation for AG2.  And since there's not much known about it, well...I guess it's up to us to flesh it out storywise.

Any updates @Bob De Quatre? Not complaining or anything, I'm pretty invested in BoBS, but I'm curious if we could get an update for 2018. :blush:

Altho in fairness considering my preference for female characters this probably isn't much of a surprise to anyone. Especially @LucByard who follows me on FB

Anyways with any luck I'll be back up and running building mocs and contributing here sooner than later..

This is such great news all respects. Can't wait to see where Danielle is headed and how much trouble a red-haired woman might be able to cause her :wink:

Hey, I had a question on faction colors. For Mantis, can I use black with orange bits as a substitute or is it strictly black and lime green. This is only for my sig-fig and personal vehicles.

We tended to stick to the green and black scheme, and even though lime was usually the "official" Mantis green, any green works--lime, light green, sand green, olive, whatever, paired with black.

So if you wanted to focus on orange, it might make it less Mantis-like, but that isn't the end of the world. You could always  justify it in-story, or make the build more insect-inspired build or something if you're worried about it. There was never really a hard-and-fast rule about that sort of thing, as long as it was "Mantis (or Octan, Kawa) enough".

TL;DR I wouldn't worry much. Ask for feedback on a few builds, and the community will give you more guidance.

Erf, it doesn't work at all :sceptic:

Should we try with a reasonable amount of bacon and eggs like Bregir ?

:tongue:

Was there not some amount of beer involved too? Works for me. :pir-grin:

Looks like this game has been on Hiatus as long as I have. Pity. I'm finally back in a stable condition and looking forward to AG 2.0

And I was thinking...

Maybe I'd go Fleshie this time.

Ft: 2 random employees, Dr. Long's secretary Odus Dillberg (head is prelim), Dr. Danielle Long (head from Female Inferno Squad Trooper), and Dr. Long's (possibly only) friend Emily Dupont (head from Black Widow)

I wouldn't have gone fleshie without the perfect head for Danielle. And when I saw that head in an affordable set, I knew it was right.

@Dannylonglegs OH SNAP!  WELCOME BACK!

I'm glad to see that you are doing well!

Speaking of which, I, too, have my AG2 crew ready.  I guess it's almost time for me to post them, as well.
