Arrow Kinda...

True for the LT part but even the Scouts use the designations of Ranger or Pathfinder due to their specialized and more dangerous career path. They're somewhat elite for the Scouts.

Well, one of the reasons I picked Olam was that I had created a write-up on that world. I think I posted it in the Permatic Imperium Dropbox (which I no longer have access to because I got a new computer in the meantime) but not on this forum, so I'll paste it in the current setting thread.

Default What about my previous Ranger dude?

Hiya, Mags! Any chance my Ranger from your previous Permatic Imperium game could get into this one? I really liked that guy, and didn't get to play him very long at all.

I hope that I am not being overly optimistic, but I think I could handle being a player in a game (I know I am not up to being a GM ). LMK what you think. I'm gonna peruse your other Sticky pages re Setting etc.

If you can find him, sure. That gives me two Scouts and one Navy, not bad. Man this is when I miss the old Force Commander. He would have filled that gun-bunny slot and with style.

Still Scouts are supposed to be resouceful...

Thanks, pal. As for finding him, well, I'm pretty sure he is still right where I left him, down below there in the threads from your previous Permatic Imperium game that he was in!

Yeah.


==============================================

Here is Frank Masuda v.4.0, made in the Using CotI Die-Roller for T5 Char-Gen thread.

Frank Masuda, Imperial Scout Service, Permatic Imperium
Player: SpaceBadger; Created: 01 May 2014, for Magnus's PbP Game
Name: Francisco Jackson Masuda (Frank, Pancho)
Born: 301-154 PI, Died: N/A, Seven Terms, Age: 46
Hair: Brown, Eyes: Blue, Height: 1.9m, Mass: 91 kg
Title(s): Senior Scout (7 terms), Knight of the Empire (KE), Knight of the Prepared Order of the Compass and Beacon (KB)
Fame: 19 (3 x Discoverer of [Something], plus 7 for public arrests as Ranger)
(additonal Fame 9 for secret activity as Ranger Agent limited to Need to Know) Total Fame 19+9=28
Mustering Out Money: Cr90,000

Description: Frank Masuda (Pancho to old friends) is a deceptively mild, plain-featured man. Casual friends would call him a calm, friendly person. Those with sufficient security clearance to know of his exploits as a Ranger Agent would laugh out loud at such a description. He commonly wears his old Scout Service shipsuit, unless the circumstances call for dressing up or down. He always carries at least one non-lethal weapon, varying according to local legal restrictions. If expecting trouble, he will also be carrying (holstered) his TL-F Gauss pistol with selectable ammunition (tranq, frag, penetrator) from his Ranger days.

He is frequently found around starports, either operating his detached duty Type S Scoutship Vargr's Grin or else working on some other ship, or doing a favor for someone down on his/her/its luck. His one public lament is that he never made enough discoveries for a TAS membership, and he jokes sometimes about saving his pennies to buy his way in.

UPP (final): 7DBA6C
UPP (birth): 9A9944
Genetic Profile: 6633X2

Skills: Actor-2, Admin-1, Advocate-2, Animals-0(Rider-1), Astrogator-2, Bureaucrat-2, Driver-0(Grav-1), Electronics-2, Fighter-3(Unarmed-2), Flyer-0(Grav-2), Forensics-4, Gravitics-2, Hostile Environment-1, JOT-1, Language: TBD-2, Pilot-2(SmallCraft-2), Recon-2, Sensors-2, Stealth-4, Streetwise-3, Survey-2, Survival-3, Trader-1, Vaccsuit-2

[Cascades: Starship-6: Astrogator-2, Pilot-2(SmallCraft-2); Soldier-2: Recon-2]

Homeworld: Heridis [FARS 1128] C 745 744-B S Ag Na Pi Tz 800 Im.

Here is the more prosaic character information about Julius Tanaka I promised (it links to the information on Olam I posted in the setting thread):

On his mother's side, Julius is part of House Varsis, an Olamese local-nobility family (SOC 9) that gained in power after the ascension of Rigel Lluzon to Judge-Emperor of Olam in 0180 PI because they have ties to House Lluzon. House Varsis also has ties to the system defence forces and ore mining ventures (Olam's primary export prior to the arrival of multiworld technological companies following the ascension of House Lluzon), and aided House Lluzon in tracking down and combating members of House Rannian after the assassination of Rigel Lluzon at the hands of Robert Rannian in 0192 PI.

On his father's side, Julius comes from a family of average social standing, with his father's family having immigrated from [FARS 1624] Saucil when Julius's father was young. The Tanaka family, though lacking the social or economic power of House Varsis, has had numerous members in the Imperial Navy.

ALLIES:

Hallon Tanaka, Julius's father, who served three terms in the Imperial Navy and is currently employed as a Craftsman for Wiseman Yards, a Chartered Company manufacturing smallcraft and vehicles who moved their headquarters to Olam after the ascension of House Lluzon (who provided a large, technically skilled workforce with fewer regulations than on other Imperial worlds, and also acquired shares in the company).

Carick Shanley, who was Julius's mentor/commanding officer in the Imperial Navy and is currently ranked O5 Captain. Though sometimes not taken seriously by those of the same rank as him because of his eccentricities (exotic tastes in fashion and music, laziness in paperwork, tendency to flirt with female officers), he is a skilled strategist and tactician.

Isaac Varsis, Julius's younger cousin on his mother's side who is currently also in the Imperial Navy. Rash and somewhat antisocial and insubordinate, but a skilled medic and combatant. Also notably psionically skilled.

So, the locals play rough.

I think I might need to sit down and work up a chronology for the last fifty years or so. What with all the characters and their Careers I'm starting to have some actual events in the setting.

Oh and what was Julius' thesis for Command College? A title would be nice, an abstract best. But I would like to know what it was they learned there.
