Default Henry as part-time NPC shooter

I digressed posting elsewhere, and decided this fit best here. I'm not responding to anything, just stating my piece. I have proposed that, especially in combat, Henry can be used as an NPC however Badger sees fit. To that end:

I see this a little like playing Jayne in Firefly; if we are talking about what he's doing with the Feds on Ariel, that's a crucial player choice. If we say, "The bad guys are shooting at the crew; Jayne, what are you doing?" it is not rocket science but muscle memory.

Anyone can play Henry's muscle memory as far as I'm concerned. Likewise, anyone can have him doing something dorky in front of a woman, girl, or even a Brownie. Anyone can have him losing his last 2Cr in a card game, deferring to authority, or watching the ship when everyone else is getting stinkin' on liberty. You can do that 'cause that who he is, because that's how I've made him, I have said so, and he is mine. You should do so according to Badger's say-so, cause he's the Man.

LOL, so now we expressly have two Jayne-inspired crew.

Thanks, Sam.

EDIT: Chaos, did you ever reply as to whether Gayne's electromag combat sniper rifle has a name? I believe that Sam has mentioned Henry's laser carbine is Vivian.

I asked a question somewhere about the wiki entries, and how we would upload pics for them. Do we know how that works? Obviously you know how, SB - you got those purty maps up in there. How do I get a pic or two into the wiki?

Well, if I could find the previous time I answered this for you, I would just quote it for you here ( ), but it apparently wasn't much of an answer, so probably not worth the effort.

So...

Log into the Wiki so that you can make edits and stuff.

Toward the lower end of the lefthand sidebar is a link that says "Upload File"; it works the same as most every similar link everywhere else on the web.

Now you have the file uploaded, you need to remember the filename that you gave it; should be the same filename it had on your machine, unless you expressly changed it when uploading.

Now go to the wiki page where you want to put the image (Donoma's character page, I assume?).

Click the "Edit" tab along the top edge of the page.

Now, somewhere in the page where you want the image to appear, put in this link:
[[File:filename|right|text-top|caption]]

The caption is optional; if you leave it out, also leave out the last pipe.

For more options, see Mediawiki:Help:Images.

I have found the most helpful info on formatting etc for this Wiki by drilling down a few links under the "Help" link to this Mediawiki:Help:Formatting page. Or if still stumped, ask tjoneslo, the Wiki admin; he has always been very helpful, but I imagine he must get deluged w questions, so I usually try to figure something out myself, first. (Besides, it is good exercise. )

Here's the funny thing: when I put down "Vivian," I was thinking "Vera." Vera is the name of my daughter's favorite doll: MUCH more appropriate!

Someone smarter than me once said, "There are two kinds of military men: those who love Kipling, and those who do not know Kipling." I think one could substitute Traveller fans and Firefly in that. Thus, any non-military shooter on a ship crew that I ever play will be chronically infected with the Jayne bug. That said, Henry's more of a zero-g shooter. He's more hung up over women, has gambling problems, and would never have to ask Kaylee where the hydraulic thingy was in the engine room. Jayne's a bear; Henry's more of a weasel.

Just to throw it out there, when I was still a patrol deputy my personal AR-15 carbine was (and still is) named Vera. After Jayne's, naturally. In fact the kids insisted on it.

OK, with what account? I edited once before while logged into CotI normally. But, now, it insists my account doesn't exist there. What did I do wrong? Do I need a separate account, now?

That you will have to ask tjoneslo.

Did you try logging in w your CotI username and pwd?

If it says that acct does not exist, maybe try clicking "register"?

ISTR I had to do a separate registration , not just be logged into CotI.

That's what it looks like - a separate registration. Which means that when I tweaked an item before, it was because the thing was wide open. OK, I'll go set myself up, today.

The wiki, while hosted on the same server, is a separate hosting account, with separate login and separate user accounts. This is because (1) the VB3 wiki software mod broke at 3.8.2 (1.1) an update to PHP broke it further due to changes in the PHP syntax (2) the VB4 wiki software mod is incompatible with the wiki we had been running, (3) the offsite wiki needed new hosting, and (4)the COTI wiki needed cleanup which couldn't be done as it was.

Oh, and (5) the integration of the wiki created security issues for VB3.

I've not gotten vb4 up yet. I'm still trying to isolate what is and isn't essential on our VB3 install.
