    I never liked the idea that using the suit drains it's energy. Because when you're at the end of a hunt, where your suit energy might already be low, you'll have to face the boss(es) usually. That's when a working suit is crucial. But now you'd have to make the choice to either not use it and conserve your defensive power, or use it and deplete it even further.

    You probably wouldn't expect me saying this, since I play an enemy. But being weaker than the onion alien dad, I don't think it's gonna make much difference for us vamps. And the npc aliens can simply be modified to still provide a challenge.

    Because a balance is fine and all, but it's not easy to achieve. Besides I never found it delayed things much. In most cases it happens in an attack, where the gm comes in to write what happens anyway. In those cases it's just part of his update process. And in the other cases...well it's not like there isn't a timewindow for it at our speed.

    I like the no off-mission training though. Because that way the difference between gantzers and vamps won't increase that fast. Because a gantzer not only get's exp for what he does, he also get's better weapons through the gantz points (while vamps only get exp). No reason to also add off-mission training.

    Would i ever be so bad as to send hordes of evil aliens and then to only send in the boss? Heh... besides gantzers aren't suppose to be immortal, they have to die. The tech that they get can go a long way, just don't depend on it too much (and that's to message behind it all and will all ways be) Its crucial that the suit weakness which i would say is its limited power supply... Imagine if Every move a player makes could be one using a suit boost.... walking; suit boost;... eating; super suit boost.. of course this are just some over the top wackyness but who knows how a player might abuse the suit. A never ending supply of power for it is just too hax! IT forces the player to think before they play and manage their gear (which many people do) or they can just play it like i play Takezo,... Go all out and not care about the consequence (there's 100 energy in the suit... it's pretty much a waste if you don't use it anyway.)

    As for the vamps, i agree that they are weak unfortunately that's how they were made in the manga. So i can't really do much about it unless i write a special mod you the vamp that boosts them. Just like in the manga i'm giving them a boost in their Agi stat. Vamp's will be able to dodge attacks better and attack more thus forcing gantzers to use up their suits energy to fight vamps which is pretty much like how it was with Izumi. They had to wear out his suit before they could kill him.

    That's what gantz is supposed to be, but this is also an rpg. Characters just don't die as much. Because it takes months to do a mission and even longer to get 100 points. Who's gonna wait that long to get back in the game. If we kill someone, he's pretty much out of the game for good. And killing the active players we have just isn't good practice. I can live with almost immortal characters. Knowing that they'll probably survive doesn't ruin the story for me.

    About the suit. They can try that, just like they could try it now. But the suit doesn't always activate. That system worked fine till now, so there's no reason to expect a sudden change. And don't forget the off-mission stuff. If there are three weeks between two missions, that's a long time. That is if you use it (naomi with the rapists and underground fighting) or are forced to use it (vampire attacks).
    Then again, I liked your explanation in the global about skittles. It's not like in the manga, but at least you explained to the readers how stuff works. Not like Oku.

    And about the vamps. Well, you changed how the suits work. At least I don't remember it being said that using it depletes it's energy in the manga. So you could have also changed the powerlevels a bit, to make the fights more even. Because more speed hardly makes up for all the gantzers advantages in all other areas.
    I mean it can't be that fast, if it didn't make me get a clean hit on a normal human, who was standing a few feet away.

    But I'll see how this all works out. I'm not above running away if I realize I don't stand a chance against a hunter. And it's not like things are set in stone. Rules and game-mechanics develop over time in a new game.


    btw. Freeing yourself with a sword was a small god-mod. Because the wire is designed to catch aliens and don't break that easily. I think you'd need help from your suit to cut through it, and that would've been up to me. If you can still edit, I suggest you flip the sentences around. Let him see the impaled Dino, making him interest. And then trying to free himself to go over there.

    Also, this is no cycle. You can post as much as you like as long as there is no action, just like in the room.

    well you made it pretty easy to for takezo to cut andre out earlier. I'm assuming it's te same. Not to mention that with the bug leaving maikeru's body, it should have loosen the bonds that are binding making escape easier. However if u say i can't, then i won't. Change will come later.

    UPDATE: CRAP! can't edit! So I'll do it here.

    It was strange to see the alien shooting a spear out, which was unlike any of it's attack so far. Takezo felt it was odd indeed and it certainly spurred his attention. He walked towards the dead man ignoring Shins commands to help the others only to be stopped by the wire which binded him person once know as boyscout. It was bound tight and straigtening his legs hurt after his dive from six floors. In order to get out of his binds, Takezo pulled out his sword from the alien and started chipping away at the rockets lodged on the ground.

    True. Back then you wrote how you leisurely free Andre. Which was okay for me at the time. But now the tables are turned. Takezo is bound, or his leg is ( I should have specified that his whole body is bound). I think that's a good time for the brothers get back, now that the fight is over. They'll certainly enjoy seeing him that way *gg*

    That's the only reason why I mentioned it.

    Hey guys. I'll post later today. I was planning on visiting yesterday but I got a seriously bad case of stomach flu(or food poisoning or whatever it is that causes excruciating stomach problems) and was indisposed for all of yesterday. I'm mostly better today save for a few lingering bouts of sickness but at least I can sit in front of a computer. I'd post right now but I have to go to the dentist for a crown. :/

    ...

    The universe is punishing me for something, I think...

    EDIT: I'm back and the post is done. I'm going to go lie down now.

    So... whats happened to Sean? Shin is running to where he roughly is and I'd like to post what he sees when he reaches him. If hes more or less in one piece but ko'd, the first thing Shin would do is check his vital signs (pulse, breath).

    Of course, if Sean's dead, Shin will get upset and run back to check on Naomi. I'd just like some info so I dont godmod here.

    I don't understand.

    If someone found the car in the main street, managed to get in and took the gas bomb, this wouldn't work. Steres gas bomb is a bucket filled with two liquids that create smoke, nothing more. It can't explode. Only my bottle-bombs do that.

    There was one lying on the backseat that they could've taken, but the bottles are made of plastic. Unless there was glass between the girls face and the bottle at the moment it went off, there can't be any shards.

    Just saying it in case you want to tweek your post so that the facts are right. Doesn't mean you have to change the basic outline of the events.
    But please tell us the situation at the end of the post. How full of people is the street to the fence in the alley at that moment. And can we see the guards at the fence and how they are reacting?

    Please read again. There's no mention of any one finding the car just running towards it. There's no mention anyone entering the car too. You're assuming that there are shots coming from the fence, no. Just because the gun shots came from the main road doesn't mean it came from the fence. Its just the general direction of where the shots came from (it could have been further up the road or smack in the middle of the crowd by the fence), not to mention you don't know who's shooting. Also don't forget there are people standing around like the people by the electronics store who were watching the news broadcast from the window.

    You cant see the fence at the small alley from where you both are. So drive the car and find out.
