Great to have you back, Lieutenant. I hope there are others who will also answer the call - once again, the Facebook site caught me totally off-guard. But it certainly isn't a bad thing. I'm honored.

I was thinking...

If we do this again, how would you all feel about starting fresh? Like a complete reboot of the series?

Four people - hey - that's a full lance! Certainly enough to get a fledgling company started with (if in fact the reboot comes to be - which is an intruiging concept). How do the rest of you feel about it? Reboots do seem to be the 'in' thing these days, considering MechWarrior 5 will itself be a reboot of the BattleTech series!

A reboot? Like, completely starting over? I'm game. But I hope some of the nicer things about the RPG remain...like Sheratan...Site 187...and of course the AutoVendor wink.gif

Oh yeah and we gotta keep Op Landslide. That was my personal favorite.

One reason I thought of a reboot is because, honestly, there is alot I have forgotten. I mean, I remember all the major missions and plot twists, but I don't know if I could just jump back into the current mission without screwing up an entire canon because of one oversight.

The other reason I want to do a reboot is because there are things I'm not happy with about my characters. For starters I desperately want to rename them slightly (and just throwing that in with the existing canon would be a little confusing). I wouldnt mind having a go at revisiting some the old missions and villains as well as re-writing my character's backgrounds.

The way I envisions the reboot was that we would literally just reset to the begining. We still have the same setting, same Legionnaire unit, but we just restart. I already have planned in my mind how I'd like to reintroduce Kei-teh Kintaru. I'd still like General Ren to feature as an antagonist, along with Saburo.

Believe it or not, the Legionnaires (and even Revolution) often creeps into my mind every now and again. I've thought over loads of stories if we ever did restart. I personally feel, in order to really stoke the creative fires, we need good antagonists. Without blowing my own horn too much, I remember when Ren played a major role in pushing the story forward and everyone seemed to really enjoy it. As such, I've thought up several ideas, but those will have to wait for now...

Anyways, those are just my thoughts and opinions. What did you guys have in mind?


Cheers, Keith

PS - Landslide was also one of my personal favs... I would love to revisit that again biggrin.gif

Those were good times indeed, and I did enjoy when we were following that arc. I also agree with many of the points you have made. So my question is, by going back to 'the beginning,' just how far back are we going? Have you read the unit history? I'm curious as to what sort of revising you had in mind.

Unless by 'the beginning' you mean the Operation I: Broken Arrow era?

By beginning I meant OP I Broken Arrow. I know my character didn't come onto the scene until OP II, but I'd still like to make a start from there if possible.

That sounds pretty intruiging. Okay, I'm on board. How does everyone else feel about this?

Wow, I apparently still had the forums subscribed to and set to text me when I got a message about new topics. I was extremely suprised to get 9 text messages yesterday about it. This is the first chance I got to get online and come check it out. I'm amazed that there's a facebook page about us, going to check that out next. But definately count me in for taking part in the site again.
