Well whatever that picture was, I can't get it to display now. :-(

Works fine here.

It's just some silly filler art of an annoyed Acantha in a bikini pointing some kind of gun at the camera and expressing her displeasure with the situation.

You can't advance in government bureaucracy without having your humor removed or a blocking implant installed.

I like that last scene..

and was there a joke that I didn't get here..?? Or is my sense of humor suppressed too? o_o
Centcomm 12th Aug 2012, 7:36 AM edit delete reply

Joke .. what joke >D
Stormwind13 8th Oct 2013, 7:17 AM edit delete reply

The only 'joke' was the take me to you leader at the top, Mushroom. That is the old catchphrase that cartoons used for their alien visitors upon arrival. :-D

Lack of baldness aside, at this point I'm hearing his voice as Bruce Willis.

And his calling the truck 'Beast' has me shifting its voice from JARVIS to Dr. McCoy :D
Stormwind13 8th Oct 2013, 7:19 AM edit delete reply

Why are you hearing a simple (Southern) old country doctor, velvet (I'm a doctor, not a truck driver)? :-D
velvetsanity 22nd Oct 2015, 9:54 PM edit delete reply

Wrong Dr. McCoy :D

Think blue and furry :D
Grault 22nd Oct 2015, 12:26 PM edit delete reply

His outfit makes me hear him as Maverick, or maybe James West.

Road gangs?

I would assume that if he got attacked by a gang so close to NT that NT would send out some fliers to cover him. But what would he do if he was attacked by a gang in the middle of nowhere? His vehicle does not look like it's armed, let alone well armed.

With the mentioned problems of Gutters and Raiders, taking into account how traders tend to carry around their money in hard currency (metals), I'm surprised that road gangs and similar aren't so prolific as to stymie trade along established trade routes. Is there any equivalent to state troopers or marshals or something who try to protect traders? If not, I'm surprised traders don't employ escorts for protection.
Centcomm 12th Apr 2014, 8:39 AM edit delete reply

The rangers do there best to keep down lawlessness. and Blacks craft is armed and Armored - :D
xpacetrue 13th Apr 2014, 1:46 PM edit delete reply

But back on page 508 Dolly explained that Rangers are "mercenaries who prowl the wastelands and gather odds and ends to sell." Dolly also confirms they can also be mappers and prospectors, but that it's a quote, "very general term".

In contrast, we don't see much, aside from some vague hints (such as Breaker's comments in the bar in Joleet) to suggest that Rangers enforce the law and are sworn to protect and serve. They aren't like Texas Rangers or Marshals, are they? Are they deputized? Do they swear an oath? Then how come some of them are known to collect human bodies and slaves to sell? They sound more like scavengers, doing whatever to make a buck.

I'm confused. Or is it just that corruption runs rampant among these that are supposed to uphold the law?
