Re: Official "Discuss the latest page" thread

Which reminds me, what blew Scar up? A Gerushda-class destroyer, probably. It's not explicitly confirmed - Whisper just says they were hit without warning - but it shows up to attack Kari and co when they're looking for survivors, so the most likely explanation is that it killed the Scar and then h...

Re: Official "Discuss the latest page" thread

Kari's been through this before.
Kari has been through a lot of ambushes, now that I think about it. Somewhere between three and six, depending on how you count. At this point I'd just start calculating emergency jumps any time I'm in the same system as a derelict ship.

Re: Official "Discuss the latest page" thread

The pop-up turrets are cool, but I liked the logic behind Old!Niobe's layout. She had the guns on one side and the living quarters on the other, so she could turn broadside to use both guns while shielding her vital bits.

Re: Official "Discuss the latest page" thread

Larissa, you married someone named "Vaegyr." You're in no position to make fun of peoples' names.

Also, the captain got an art update. Looking good!

Re: Official "Discuss the latest page" thread

Some kinetic weapons could be perfectly safe to use on spaceships - use frangible ammo or a small caliber, something that won't put holes in the hull - but it's also possible that Larissa's father is just a dumbass who bought the biggest gun he could find. Speaking of guns, I can't help but notice t...

Re: Official "Discuss the latest page" thread

Did Niobe get an art update? Her bridge layout is roughly the same, but all the details look different. Or is she supposed to look different because she's been refitted or something?

Re: Official "Discuss the latest page" thread

That's Niobe. We haven't seen her since the Cirins confiscated her... *checks archive* ... 15 chapters ago. It's been a long time. I guess she got sold off and converted into Rush's campaign bus?

(Niobe is a custom job, IIRC, so we know it's actually Niobe and not just a ship of the same class.)

Re: Official "Discuss the latest page" thread

If you can build large space stations, the sort that people can live on long-term (like the Exchanges or the Republic's civilian/military stations) then you don't need a life-bearing planet, only one with resources. Heck, you don't even need a planet - asteroids are more accessible and don't need yo...

Re: Official "Discuss the latest page" thread

I doubt Kessler syndrome is much of an issue in this setting. Tiny bits of debris are a disaster in real life because real rockets are made of tinfoil and paper mache and even a small impact will tear them apart, but this is a soft sci-fi setting where the ships have actual armor (and the big beefy ...

Re: Official "Discuss the latest page" thread

There's also going to be video of the Souri Collective firing railguns at the exchange. I like their chances.

Also, minor editing nitpick: It should be "Shear" rather than "Sheer."
