In rough priority order. Not saying we'll get around to all of them, but as many of them as we can.

Arrow Make a contact in at least one Caprician corp willing to sell to a Terranovan concern
Arrow Blow up something in Paladin Lots
Arrow Learn some of what the CEF knows about Utopia (raid their files?)
Arrow Assist the Liberati in the break-out from Bastille Alpha
Arrow Break Mariko Sanvit's family out of Bastille Alpha (if there) and carry them back to Terra Nova
Arrow Learn more about how the CEF's occupation of Caprice is being financed
Arrow Capture one of those light railguns
Arrow Capture either a Utopian exo or raid Hakkar's files for what they learn about the Utopian exo
Arrow Carry Weire Cantor back to Terra Nova

Basically, high level strategic objectives. Discuss. Add to. Subtract from.

More objectives, of a more tactical level:

Arrow Notify the El-Hayar of Helles's needs (10 thousand guns, etc.)
Arrow Have a look at the El-Hayar set-up in general
Arrow Assist Merrick Helles's group with their attack on Vega Starport
Arrow Get our two spare Jaguars to someone training Liberati Gear pilots (Junkman?)
Arrow Establish the Templars as a more permanent pipeline source for smuggling things into and out of the trench
Arrow Capture another octopus pack or two
Arrow Find out who's manufacturing octopus packs

Again, discuss. Add to. Subtract from.

And finally, what Gabriel's going to work on over the next few days:

Arrow Lead a small team to the El-Hayar region (either in the Spiders or in a Spider in the hold of a Whipsnake)
Arrow Deliver Helles's message
Arrow Evaluate the El-Hayar autofac, capabilities, and more importantly, defenses
Arrow Make suggestions for additional defenses, if they seem to be needed
Arrow Trade for another Liberati Long Rifle or two (ours was sadly blown up)
Arrow Return to Helles territory
Arrow Meet with Highlands First representative; get an idea of their goals
Arrow Evaluate security around Vega Starport and get a feel for where reinforcements to the Starport are likely to come from

For the last, as I recall, the Starport is outside the actual trench with a monorail line leading to it. Is that right? Are there any CEF bases around the Starport, or does the Starport rely on local security plus reinforcements from the trench? Basically, Gabriel will be looking for a good place to set up a Gear force to attack reinforcements headed for the Starport when Helles starts his attack.

Vega Starport is in a small series of canyons outside of the main Cat's Eye trench. As far as you know, the whole starport has been taken over by the CEF in a manner similar to Paladin Lots, though commercial traffic does still move through there. Very heavily defended. However, it's also very busy, so you can get in if you're crafty about it. And the Liberati are generally fairly crafty.

Arrow Suggest we delay action around Paladin Lots until after the Alpha breakout. With the CEF likely heavily distracted trying to recapture or kill escapees, it might give us the window we need to get in.

Arrow Priority to learning more about the CEF's funding source. The Utopian had it right in discussing how useless one colony's currency is on another colony or Earth. Even more important given the amount of money the CEF is going to have to put into in evacuating that extra distance around the Lots. If we can strain it, we force the CEF to massive loans or curtailed operations -- they can't be fully supplying themselves from Earth.

Arrow Capturing an Exo would be nice, but without anything supporting it, we just get an expensive paperweight to take back to TN. If we get files regarding them, we're more likely to learn about its design strengths and weaknesses, as well as how to maintain/fix them. It eliminates our need to make that analysis. Files are also much easier to get back to TN, and can also be passed to another Talon team if we're in danger of being caught or wiped out. Also, if we wipe out their copies of the files, it forces them to do the entire analysis again (or restore from backup, assuming we don't get that).

Arrow Vega Starport?

Who says the CEF is funding the Paladin Lots expansion? They could have just as easily forced the current government to pay it out. If so wouldn't that hurt the Caprician economy in the area?

We need to make a concerted effort into finding out more about the negoitiations with Utopia. Do we even know what kind of military strength or threat they pose? Why would the CEF negoitate with them if they could just attack them and win?

What kind of tech do they have? What is the state of its infrastucture and economy? Is it united? We know there are more factions, but some might have alliances.

What are the CEF plans for Utopia? Will Utopia back them in a bid for the other colonies? If they do side with the CEF will their technology have an impact here on Caprice or the other worlds?

For all we know Utopia could have an armada equipped with a fully operational Death Star just on the other side of the gate. I think that its a much higher priority then trying to put more strain on Paladin Lots. The Exos might be important, but the negoitiations with Utopia have a much greater impact across the galaxy then just weapons.

Re: the CEF "forcing" people to do what they want, and random thoughts.

The CEF is in a difficult spot. If they take what they want with no compensation, they only add fuel to any resistance against the CEF. We know Rasuul is taking the Liberati threat very seriously, so she'd likely be against doing anything that would drive more to support the Liberati cause. Paying people to take in the evictees makes everyone happy.

That's on an individual level. On the corporate level, you have the CEF worming their way into running Caprice via the quasi-governmental ruling board of other corporations. Corporate politics == don't piss off the important people and know how to manipulate them to get their support. Or in other words, don't force your American colonists to house British troops in their private homes. Wink

At the corporate level, it's clear the CEF is supplying their efforts via Caprician production output. Corporations have facilities in the Lots that we know of. So how is the CEF paying them? As the Utopian rep pointed out, CEF and Caprician currency doesn't mean much on Utopia. With trade having been disrupted for so long among the colonies and Earth, for the time being, any sort of transaction is more likely to be bartering for like goods and services -- not currency.

The Earth "forcing" Caprician corporations to fund them, or provide goods without compensation? I don't think Caprice's economy could sustain that for long, having to still provide the same level of protection and comfort that Caprice's workers expect. (Think WWII rationing and such.) Clearly the *only* manufacturing that the CEF has really curtailed in any way has been small arms manufacturers.

Remember: Terra Nova *smashed* the better part of one fleet, and what wasn't smashed, the CEF high command disposed of. Joanna confirmed that most of that equipment was "war surplus" from Earth. Now the CEF's gotta pay to arm up. Doing so at home means the problem of getting all that equipment here, whereas producing locally on Caprice solves the transportation issue. So why hasn't the CEF outright seized *all* factories capable of producing war materiel?

What does the Earth have to offer Caprice corps as payment? Their tech has reached parity by now, and Utopia has the upper hand now. The CEF has the space assets to bring in water, but most of what they process likely goes to fuel their military.

How favorable are the exchange rates on NEC and Caprician currency?

I guess that makes sense, but we still need to figure out more about the Utopians. You assume that the CEF is only using Caprice to build fleets. What happens if another colony voluntarily helps them out.

I wasn't joking about the whole Death Star thing. Keep in mind that the Terranovan fleet might have been surplus, but that doesn't mean they didn't have more fleets. After all who invades a galaxy with just one fleet of "surplus" ships.

And if a "surplus" set of ships almost won on Terranova, what happens when they send the real deal? They know Talons have been infiltrating Caprician space, so why would they leave their main weapons and ships just floating there to be sabotaged or infiltrated?

They have to have more fleets. It just doesn't make sense otherwise and like I said before we have no idea what the Utopians are capable of. They might have triple the manufacturing capabilities of Caprice.

I thought the primary goal of Talons was to get information on CEF operations not just simple sabotage and junk collecting (Exos). To me the possibility that the CEF might gain allies is paramount to our operations on Caprice and the survival of Terranova.

Oh, they certainly have more surplus equipment, in the other fleets. I'm sure our Atlantean guest can tell us more about how it fared on their world.

Could another colony be helping them out? Sure. But what are they getting out of the deal? CEF money is worthless on Utopia. The Utopians clearly have a technological edge, so the CEF doesn't have much to offer them there. What the Earthers do have is a disposable purple army and ongoing military production on Caprice.

So that leads to another question: Was the CEF raid on Terra Nova undertaken to keep the TNs occupied while they helped their new Utopian allies in some endeavor?

Cleanup is in progress. If anything's left, I'll finish it up when I get home, which will also be when this stuff migrates to the wiki. (You guys ARE reading the wiki, RIGHT?)

Kudos to Itz for jumping right in with some great questions, and thanks to Mem for the Business Roll of Doom. Smile

As Colin has announced, the next game will be in Gomorrah. As part of deciding what we wanted to do, and in light of a very answer-y GM, we made significant inroads on intel. Here's what our intel gathering has presented us for things to do this time in the Trench:

Arrow Either infiltrate or hack the Caprican company "Mindworks", who received a rather large payment from Vega Spaceport/Gallot Sol. This may be a link that corresponds to the hypnotraining of the Maribold who were pulled aside in the interviewing process. This company informally offers personality changing services in addition to the usual self-improvement services. The goal should be to determine if A) the unrecovered Maribold were hypnotrained here, and B) what the purpose of the hypnotraining was.

Arrow Work on creating contacts within Raballo. The goal here is three-fold: First, to have a place we may be able to de-hypnotrain the Maribold. Second, to learn more about the hypnotraining process (in case it can be used back home or detected.) Third, to get more intel on KSM (Per mission parameters regarding learning everything we can about the CEF's source of funding.)

Arrow Infiltration and extraction of information regarding the light railgun from Mariss Milspec. (Per Mission Parameters.)

Arrow Find a way to know more about KSM's secure assets. Likely requires infiltrating & data extraction from KSM. (Per mission parameters.)

Arrow Create contacts within the Liberati underground media organizations and begin to cultivate some with the major legitimate ones. We know the CID is censoring the major ones, but we may find some way to work around that. The goal here is to make sure the underground media has the RIGHT stories regarding our operations and intentions.

Arrow Refresh our medical inventories, which I assume are depleted after helping the Liberati.

If you want to know the specifics about what we learned last night, read on. The bulk of the log is below, sorted out into topics, since some questions were answered later or in between others.

Arrow Vega Spaceport is owned by Gallot Sol. They were the ones who won the bid to run the place for the CEF after they seized it:
[23:49:21] <Savant> as for what GalSol was allowed to buy Vega? The CEF needed someone to control Vega because
they didn't trust the natives. So they petitioned Earth companies for the contract, and GalSol won the contract.
[23:49:32] <Itzpapalotl> If GalSol is doing so much crappier than GalCap, how did they come up with the
money/resources to buy Vega Space Con?
[23:49:37] <Itzpapalotl> And then continue to run them remotely.
[23:49:44] <Itzpapalotl> Without having local enforcement.
[23:49:56] <Itzpapalotl> Or at least a dude or two going there to 'keep shop'.
[23:50:05] <Savant> they were given it for a very low price. The CEF basically nationalized Vega and lets GalSol run it.
[23:50:16] <Savant> and yeah, there are a good number of GalSol dudes on Caprice running Vega

Arrow Traffic into and out of the Vega Spaceport into orbit has been routine, with no major increases or decreases.

Arrow The strange looking shuttles (presumably Utopian) are still present at the spaceport.

Arrow Gomorrah is rife with underground media, while mainstream media is censored by the CID.

Arrow There is an impending water shortage on the way.

Arrow [23:25:12] <Detro> Okay. First, Tynes needs to decide our tactics with the corporations. Data gathering there is going to be pointless until I know what I'm looking for -- that is, specific signs a corporation supports the Liberati or the CEF.

We do know about how many companies and which ones specifically support the CEF. However, we don't have an exact directive against them - are we hurting the CEF supporters, or trying to win them over to our side?

Arrow [23:26:09] <Detro> Second: News feeds. I want *every* story on the wire that discusses events at Vega Spaceport during this time. Compare them all to each other. If all the details are the same, that's all we need to know to confirm the CID is scrubbing the news clean.
[23:28:55] <Savant> there is differing news on what happened out there. Some call it terrorism, some say there was a training accident, some say other things. No one's got the truth, and the CEF only seems interested in clamping down on any charges of incompetence or poor decision-making on its part.
[23:30:19] <Savant> there's a bit of onjecture, but the city really doesn't seem to care a lot
[23:30:28] <Savant> they're more worried about the impending water shortage.
[23:30:59] <Detro> All the more reason we need to get good press NOW. You can bet once that shortage hits, it'll all be "This is all due to terrorism by the Talons."

I'd like to suggest we consider those news organizations that didn't cry "terrorist" be considered somewhat approachable.

Arrow [23:27:27] <Detro> Third: We need to find an underground media outlet. First to see what THEY report about the Vega Spaceport. And then, find a contact within that organization, so we can set up some way of exchanging intelligence and maybe funnelling them the truth, or some stories that'll at least play well in the underground press.

No response on this point yet. Might come down to seeing who is broadcasting in the bar room trivids on the lower levels.

Arrow [23:32:02] <Detro> While we're going through the news, is anything being said of or about Utopia?
[23:33:28] <Savant> there's an interesting fashion piece that mentions Utopia. Apparently the current craze for particular styles of swords, armour and boardroom fashion is heavily influenced by Utopian fashion
[23:33:37] <Savant> nothing at all of any real influence though

Could this indicate that at some point, the Utopian presence on Caprice was very widely known and publicized? We might want to consider searching news archives.

Arrow [23:32:39] <Detro> Or are any corporations announcing an "impending major trade deal" or something to that effect?

Arrow [23:33:44] <Detro> Next step after that depends on if Tynes gives a shit about the Maribold. Locate all Caprician companies that do hypnotraining.
[23:34:04] <Savant> there are two dozen decent hypnotraining companies out there.
[23:34:31] <Detro> Find out what programs they specialize in, grab information on how they've fared since the CEF has arrived. Especially if the CEF has taken an interest to any.
[23:35:27] <Savant> they mostly specialize in job retraining, high-speed managerial courses, programs to help you succeed, self help stuff.
[23:36:06] <Detro> And what about the "off-the-beaten-path" programs? Do any NOT specialize in those types of courses?
[23:36:08] <Itzpapalotl> Which companies have had a significant raise in income recently?
[23:36:14] <Detro> ::nods at Itz::
[23:36:24] <Detro> Within the last 6 months.
[23:36:31] <Detro> Well, 8 really. Give them time to set up the deal
[23:37:32] <Savant> good question. One, Mindworks Inc., has gotten a fat paycheque from Vega Space Consolidated. (Edit: who is owned by GalSol)
[23:37:44] <Detro> I want all the data we can get on that company then.
[23:38:48] <Savant> (Mindworks is) Caprician. Second-tier company, within the top 10,000.
[23:39:07] <Detro> And what programs do they offer to the public? The generic stuff, or anything more?
[23:40:20] <Savant> Give me a business/kno cpx 1, Detro
[23:40:32] <Detro> !skill Business KNO
[23:40:33] <Lemon> Detro, your Business roll result is ( 5 2 ) + (2 KNO) + (0 Mod) + (0 Wounds) : 7
[23:41:04] <Savant> just what I wanted to see. They advertize corporate retraining, self improvement, and managerial fast-track programs.
[23:41:18] <Savant> they do *not* advertize, but do offer, personality adjustment.

Arrow [23:45:12] <Savant> both Vega and GalSol are not listed in the CME.

Arrow [23:51:10] <Itzpapalotl> Seems kind of weird that they take an official stance on not letting the actual company of
GalSol onto Caprice, but'll accept their flunkies.
[23:51:30] <Savant> because the CEF won't allow any Caprician companies off of Caprice just yet. With good
reason - Gomorran companies would pretty much devour Earth whole. They'd own the place within a few years.
[23:52:04] <Savant> The New Earth Commonwealth is fascist. Money makes its world go round.
[23:52:29] <Savant> It's amusing to note that the CEF wasn't built by the bidder who could produce the cheapest. It was built by the manufacturer that could produce the *lightest*


Arrow [23:52:22] <Detro> In the news, are there any "investigations" or mentions of the CEF/CID "looking into" anything?
[23:53:16] <Savant> the CID is looking into extracolonial terrorism (i.e. you guys) and native terrorism (i.e. the Liberati Jund). But they're vague on it
[23:53:37] <Savant> other than that they're apparently just providing basic, free security and social services to Gomorrah.

Arrow [23:54:51] <Detro> Hmm. Actually, do they say if they're still investigating the scene at the spaceport?
[23:55:53] <Savant> there was little mention of the spaceport. it's ahrd to say whether that's form the CID covering it up or honest disinterest.

We may want to consider monitoring land traffic coming back from the spaceport. Maybe we can snipe Rasuul on her way back. Wink

[23:56:22] <Itzpapalotl> You said there's a stock exchange. Just for shits and giggles, any stocks of interest go up lately?
[23:57:00] <Savant> sure, Itz. Hakkar is doing very well. Gallot is starting to break even after a period of nosediving. KSM is doing *Fantastic*.
[23:57:28] <Savant> Investigating that a bit, you note that KSM provided a fat loan to Vega Space Consolidated about six months ago and has been enjoying a fat pipe of money from them ever since, in the form of interest.
[23:57:59] <Detro> 70% of the financial venture investment firms funding the CEF have been traced back to KSM.
[23:58:22] <Savant> Used to be a lawfirm. Now they're a lawfirm/investment company/banking institution/insurance provider/stock brokerage/etc etc etc
[23:58:39] <Itzpapalotl> And GalSol bought out Vega, so KSM is getting GalSol money.
[23:58:50] <Savant> they own a lot of stock in other companies, and a lot of real estate. They're rated #6 in the CME, as in the 6th most powerful corporation on the planet.
[23:59:25] <Savant> KSM was the first station you rolle.d Sollers, actually.

Arrow We have more of an incentive to make contact with Raballo, other than for intel on KSM:
[00:00:50] <Savant> Raballo is a member of a subordinate company of Gallot, called the Gallot Social Welfare Agency. A humanitarian program. They take in orphans, retrain them for
work, help down-on-their-luck Gallot employees, etc.
[00:01:05] <Savant> interestingly, that agency is also one of the two dozen companies that provides hypno-training services.
[00:03:21] <Itzpapalotl> Asking a 'friendly' company about the basics of hypnotraining might be good.
[00:03:22] <Detro> So yeah, we'll want to consider setting up a meeting with him, if it works into the plans born from Tynes' decision.

Arrow About Hypnotraining:
[00:03:37] <Itzpapalotl> (Is) there a way to break it without breaking the trained person.
[00:04:53] <Savant> basic hypnotraining, sure. It's like fancy, layered hypnotic suggestion. Can be removed by more hypnotraining sessions without any adverse affects.
[00:05:09] <Savant> you don't know about hte advanced shit that EGL labs does with GREL and SLEDGEs though
[00:05:27] <Savant> you also don't know how good Mindworks is at theirs. TErranovan hypnotraining is arguably sort of primitive
[00:06:01] <Itzpapalotl> Does the person need any 'prep' for the hypnotraining? Or would they give clues/tips on the kind of people hypnotraining works best on?
[00:06:57] <Savant> prep is required. Whole sessions of prep, generally, before the person is capable of properly accepting a hypnotraining program. And sure, ther are certain brain
chemistries that are more vulnerable to hypnotraining
[00:07:12] <Savant> has more to do with brain chemistries and succeptibilities to certain drugs than anything.
[00:08:10] <Itzpapalotl> A combination of drugs that they make/put together themselves or buy from a medical corp?
[00:10:49] <Savant> the drugs that are needed are regulated, but available. The actual regimen of drugs is generally chosen by the company doing the hypnotraining, and the exact
combinations are patented along with the hypnotraining programs

Arrow [00:11:12] <Detro> CEF Financing: Do Caprician financing organizations have to file any public details about who they are lending their money to?
[00:12:40] <Savant> not entirely, no Dennis. They do post financial information to the CME, but there are whole career paths just for interpreting what those financial reports *mean*. Finance reporting is considered an art form in Gomorrah, used to deceive opponents and the like.
[00:13:11] <Detro> We'll want what we can get for KSM's financing around the period that the CEF settled in.
[00:13:23] <Detro> eg, when we think the CEF started to get financed.
[00:18:18] <Savant> KSM was dooing only moderately when the CEF showed up. About two years after Earths' arrival, KSM started to improve, at first gradually, then drastically. KSM's been buying up opponents left and right.
[00:19:14] <Detro> :Very Happy: There's Mem's tasks for the next few days. That time period, hunt down the loans made to the CEF... amounts, and more importantly, if any can be bought up or something. Wink
[00:20:41] <Savant> witht he same roll, Mem can see a lot of loans to the CEF, generally after they did very well buying up opposition and having their stock soar. All of KSMs assets are secure, so far as you can see. Though you're just reading reports, so it's hard to tell.


[00:15:52] <Detro> Hakkar. Do they themselves produce those light rail guns, or does a subsidary do it for them?
[00:16:53] <Savant> subsidiary. Mariss Milspec.
[00:17:11] <Detro> Does Mariss Milspec cater to corpserfs?
[00:18:12] <Detro> I mean, we know that you can't walk around with a gun, but do they do weapons for corpserf mounts, or personal weapons for corpserfs, or armor?
[00:18:53] <Savant> Mariss Milspec makes all sorts of military grade vehicle accessories. Mostly for corpserfs, but they've got a few CEF contracts.
[00:19:03] <Savant> Mostly for pintile weapons.
[00:19:38] <Detro> Okay, so that means we can take our resident corpserf expert and likely manage to BS our way into their facility.

I'm glad that we finally have some mission objectives to work with...I'll begin looking into areas that you guys have questions in...but I need a few things from you guys first.

Arrow Where should I direct my assets?

Arrow Is there a specific corp I should target?

Arrow The rest of my Muttawah cell is still operation in Gomorrah, is there anything besides information you would like?

Note: I can get a hold of computer equipment as well.

PostPosted: Sat Jan 12, 2008 5:58 am    Post subject: Wiki Updates Reply with quote

The Wiki has been updated to include Wednesday's data. I've also changed some of the setup on the front page to hopefully speed up access time during the game -- for instance, there's a link to the Gomorran Corporations on the front page. (And that page has also been modified to hold a master list of Corporations in alphabetical order.)

There's also a sort of "catch all" page for topics that don't quite fit into the categories of enemy, contact, location... for instance, information we've determined on hypno-training, or observations about the Utopian Exos. For now, the bulk of the entries here are those that tie into our primary goals as stated at the top of this thread. (See "Special Interest Topics")

If you have few moments, I would really love some help with content proofing and formatting. Most of what I'm throwing into it is barely formatted with few cross-links to other articles. I'm also quite sure I miss information every now and then, or screw it up because I'm recalling off the top of my head instead of looking for that log on whatever date that the information might have been revealed in.
