Re: OOC Discussion

Well Angel is played by well the guy who played Angel in the show David Boreanaz of course and hell the character is loosely based Angel from the show.

Re: OOC Discussion

Joseph Quinn is Desmond Harrington. Quinn's character is loosely based on Det. Joey Quinn from Dexter, albeit more serious and smarter than the Joey Quinn from Dexter.

Re: OOC Discussion

Robert has suggested we come up with a squad name for our crew.

I personally favour The Screaming Goats, but I doubt you will.

Silent

Re: OOC Discussion

Yeah my thought was The Screaming Eagles which is a throwback to a division of the 101st Airborne in WWII and it's also a nod to our Battalion being called The Eagles of Warsaw.

Re: OOC Discussion

I like both, but think Screaming Eagles does fit better.

Re: OOC Discussion

Just out of curiosity what is everyone's rank? Obviously Quinn is Captain, but what about Angel, Harper and Bryan? I would assume Angel has never been promoted above Corporal, assuming he's even been with Maczarek for at least two years. I had played that interaction between Angel and Bryan as if they were the same rank, but thinking about it Bryan seems like he would be of higher rank.

Bryan has been with Maczarek for about five years and I would assume he has been promoted at least once so I don't think he would be below Sergeant. Also, for Lieutenant it says "standard position for senior members recruited from outside". Would that count for Bryan having served in the U-War before joining Maczarek?

Re: OOC Discussion

Well Kvant is considered a "squad" so we're a small enough unit that I believe Quinn is only considered the Commanding Officer but not "Captain".

Doing a little digging, I think Quinn's official rank is likely 2nd Lieutenant as per the following two posts (emphasis mine):

It seems to me Duquesne has multiple squads and Quinn has only one and since Duquesne is a Lieutenant, I think 2nd Lieutenant is the best guess for Quinn.

As far as ranks below that, I'd have to defer to Silent.

Re: OOC Discussion

Oh, erm...as per Silent's post here (which I stumbled across as I was closing out the window when looking at it previously) apparently Quinn is a Sergeant.

Re: OOC Discussion

Quinn is an acting Lieutenant (as the old CO is suspended), full rank Sergeant. "Captain" is his honorific title as CO. There is no 2LT rank in the Eagles.

Silent

Re: OOC Discussion

Hm, so no other squads or what's the arrangement there?

Re: OOC Discussion

Things are tad different for the Naval Company - and you need someone with a bit more experience to run the ship.

Re: OOC Discussion

Robert Longtin is awarded the "Give Them Want They Want" Award for his character Quinn demonstrating precisely how to deal with a grumbling employee.

Re: OOC Discussion

lol!  lol  I'd like to thank all the little people who made this possible, and I couldn't have done it without "grumbling employee" Angel!  tongue

Re: OOC Discussion

OK, we just need Jason to check in, but he's not really needed.

The plan is for Harper and Michelle to accompany Hyun and Mimi to the photoshoot, with Quinn, along with a new player that I've hopefully managed to recruit going to the studio.

I'll put up the photoshoot thread now.

Silent

Re: OOC Discussion

Correction: Quinn, Mike, and a new player?

And yes, I would not have had Quinn do the old switcheroo so the guys can head to the photoshoot, heh.  big_smile
