Badass Dragons of the Wasteland - Round 2

Oh no, I’m not ending up with that cake eating goat again, that was a disaster of Cleveland proportions.

What’s that, Mo? You can’t blaze through 253 posts in this thread?

There there… if @penguinchris and @JonasEggeater can get you over there in time, they will. If they cannot, why, just sit a spell here by the pizza oven and wait for the boys & girls to get back.

And look: there’s cocoa!


I think you mean 1b Momo. Don’t worry, I’m looking out for you. Wouldn’t want you toddling off to attempt 1a on your own. Although somehow I don’t doubt you would come rolling back into camp victorious.


((occ: Could always assign each mechanic the ability to repair one lost attribute. That would certainly make things more interesting. Although then we are getting more complicated and things are probably about as complicated as a game of this sort should get in the first place))

BBQ Calamari, Terrestrial squid. Dinner.



Folks that want to talk extensively about OOC issues, such as balance and gameplay mechanics and post-apocalyptic-Friedman-economics-analysis, are cordially invited to the ample discussion, and it is ample, going on in the meta thread.

There’s some amazingly highbrow commentary going on over there (not by me) by some surprisingly low brow people (totally me), and there’s also some measure of reassurance that Cougar is, in fact, not trying to kill us all.

Only me.

Now, there might be things you might consider mild spoilers. (I do). So if that’s a consideration, you’ve been made aware.



A nice young gentleman has invited me on Mission 3. That’s where I’d like to go.


By all means go to whichever mission you would like Momo, you just said you would go to 1a, I was suggesting you come around back with the rest of us, didn’t want to leave you knocking on the front door on your own.


Everyone’s on their way back, Momo. Finish your cocoa, and I promise I’ll have them wake you before anything exciting happens.

We certainly have a big job for you coming up in a few hours!

(Psst… Hey, Knife… if you have a cycle or two to spare, can you set Momo’s watch forward a day or so? She’s got a lethal history like you wouldn’t believe, but we need her to get to Missions on time, and I haven’t the heart to scold her about it. No, seriously, she has a collection of hearts in a mason jar in her trunk, and I can’t spare the one I’ve got.)


I see we have some people calling for mission 2 now. Seeing as I’ve got a bit of EN, and the other groups seem to be overcrowded, I’ll join on that group too. I won’t be flying solo, off course. But it’s hard to find out which groups there are, ya’ll have been talking so much! Sorting out the mission preferences between the mechanics talk was impossible.
It sounds like Jane’s group is the most solid of the mission 2 lot. I’d suggest other mission 2 takers join us then. With @Solomon joining us we might actually be able to haul some of those weapons with us. We’re going to be needing those weapons later on if we have any hope of goin’ to mars.
I believe I heard @kingannoy and @Mister44 mention mission 2 as well or am I crazy? Sounds like we got one of each then… But I wouldn’t mind having some extra backup along… So if anyone’s still lookin’ for a mission, we need ya!

Just to keep everything clear in one post:
I got myself 100%‘d by dear ol’ Stretch here for 8 LP’s (4 for the kit and 4 for the HP’s I was missing) and I bought myself :

  • 1 chain gun
  • 1 light plating
  • 1 plumbing upgrade
    (I can’t turn off the carbon fiber hood, eep!)

General Announcement

Hello everyone,

Thank you all for your creativity, enthusiasm, and patience! This has been a tough Round, but you all have definitely made the work worthwhile. A few RL events have caused delays these past couple of days (a long-planned family trip to Disneyland, a dinner party, school events for my kids, etc.) so we’re a bit delayed getting the Results of Round Two out to you, though Round Three’s story and Missions are largely written, and will follow close on the heels of the Results, unlike last time.

So thanks for your patience, and we’ll get this stuff out to you as soon as we can.


I don’t know if I scrooged things up on my order, but if I did, please, please don’t kill me dad!!!

I'm totally fine with you GMs pacing yourself and attending to RL 

I totally appreciate the heads up

If you’ll have me, I’ll take @webiii1976 as a repairer. 3LP for my 30HP to get me to 75%? I want you mechanics to get powered up so you can start repairing us 100% ASAP.
(no idea if that’s even how that works, but happy to pay the healbots)

As someone once said…

Wha’ happened? Did I died? did I died?

Cougar (@Donald_Petersen) , I’m not so sure Disneyland is all that family friendly these days, but it might very well make a good source of salvage - hopefully there’s a source of petrol around there. I don’t know about the others, but I don’t have too much fuel on board. Is Anaheim hopelessly out of our way?


Do you know for sure that there’s a stash of fuel there? That’s not something I’d heard, but if true it may be useful. It is out of our way, but we may need to send some scouts over there to find out. That’s going to be a risky trip though. There are a couple of small airports just ahead along our route, but since those are more obvious targets for fuel stashes, they are more likely to have already been scavenged. We’ll have to see.

You want gas you find a parking garage or a mall parking lot and start walking the aisles with a garden hose and a gas can. Pretty much how I got here from Detroit. You hit an empty car once in a while but there are enough with gas still in them that it shouldn’t take more than an hour or so to get a full tank. Just too much work to drain each individual car for the big time fuel horders to bother with like they did the gas stations and airports.


Hmm, well… in that case, there is a massive parking structure and parking lots at Disneyland, so that’s something. Although, “massive parking structure and parking lots” describes about 50% of Orange County.

Sounds like we have some side work to do. How are you at sucking on a garden hose Jane?
