Janus AMA Thread
« on: October 26, 2016, 04:26:19 PM »
Direct questions towards myself or my character here. I don't play many characters and I don't post much. Despite this I'm somehow one of the Worldbuild moderators. I'm a Marine Vet with specific knowledge on Helicopter Maintenance and Aviation Squadrons. I know guns better than most of the gross civilians here. I've got a fair bit of knowledge regarding crew served and vehicle mounted weaponry as well. I tend to help out in Military and Technology sections of WBs.

My character is a disgraced Atlesian Specialist turned high-end mercenary.

Hit me up if you need a hand with weapons or whatnot, I'll see where I can help you. Word of warning: I'm not as temperamental as Vox. but I can get heated real quick.

What personal land vehicles would you recommend for each of the four Kingdoms' regions? Or if you want it to be a little more specific: tundras, sand dunes, grasslands, and whatever Mistral is (swamps? I don't remember).

You can never go wrong with tracks, honestly. Walkers, since this is a fictional universe, may have their uses.

Tundras: Tracked vehicles, rated for cold weather operations, will be highly useful. Better traction than wheeled vehicles. Ground troops will want to clean the shit out of their weapons after firing them, then KEEP THEM DRY. That applies to crew served weapons as well. Aircraft will need very effective, well maintained anti-ice systems.

Sand Dunes: Still keep with tracks, though you'll be able to get more use out of wheels this time. Keep shit lubricated and filtered. Hydrate.

Grasslands: Really just about anything will go here. Tracks are nice, wheels are nice, shit, make walkers if you want.

Swamps/whatever?: Swamps are weird. They're gross as fuck. Keep your gear sealed. Tracks on some denser landmasses are okay. Wheels will get stuck, a lot. Hovercraft, maybe? Stick to flyovers in slow moving VTOLs as much as possible.

Good question that I'm gonna give a tiered answer to.

Highest up, he just wants to get paid for what he's good at, and paid well.

He wants to fight, more than that, though. He loves war/conflict/battle too much to ever leave it.

He wants to make sure no one makes the same mistakes he did, doesn't want kids to be butchers like him.

But most of all, furthest down, he wishes he could take it back.

If someone gave him the chance to take it back. Would he?

And say if he took it back some other kid would take his spot. Wpuld he still do it?

To the former, yes, absolutely.

To the latter, no, absolutely not.

ALMOST FORGOT I HAD AN AMA!

His ties are weak but growing, right now. Many organizations have some bad blood with him for his prior work with Atlas. They do recognize that he's separated from them, however, and are starting to look at him more and more as a potential asset as he slides further and further into the mercenary role. Janus himself is a bit leery about working with some of the worse groups, still having a bit of a moral code.

Depending on how threads go with him, he could go further into the Criminal Underworld, or head back towards being a legitimate Huntsman. Hard to say. Blowing up buildings is probably gonna lead towards the former, though.
