Nova Roma is going to give the Androids an acute case of cultural shock once all this excitement sorts itself out!

The concept of NaCl regulation is going to be a pretty tough sell.
Centcomm 21st Dec 2012, 8:23 AM edit delete reply

that whole salt thing is now a offical joke :P

Got to have at least a small supply

Probably has a whole suite of airbags and ejection seats but she's never looked. And she doesn't even wear a helmet! lol Without seat belts, how does she keep inertia from lifting her out of the seat and smashing her into the canopy?

Acantha has high expectations!
Centcomm 21st Dec 2012, 5:21 AM edit delete reply

actually the jumper doesnt go more than 250 knots max - thats around 300 mph and shes normally holding onto the steering wheel - its not designed for flips and rolls so the inertia isnt that bad , there are safety belts but again shes never looked. and a crash would be pretty much a why bother affair.
KarToon12 21st Dec 2012, 9:43 AM edit delete reply

Lynn's learning how to live for thrills. XD
Centcomm 21st Dec 2012, 9:55 AM edit delete reply

shes had a lot of thrills lately she will settle for just living :D

The Mayans were celebration the beginning of a new age today, the were out in full ancient attire performing the welcoming rituals. Today marks the end of this age and the start of a new age of enlightenment for mankind.
Centcomm 21st Dec 2012, 4:31 PM edit delete reply

maybe thats the "end of the world" they were talking about ! :P
Centcomm 21st Dec 2012, 4:31 PM edit delete reply

hehe.. they did make some great carvings..
Dragonrider 21st Dec 2012, 2:36 PM edit delete reply

One question Lynn didn't ask, and she needed to ask- Weapons, fire control and are they loaded in case of hostile intercept action. Next question do you know how to use the damn things if we need them. Also where are the Praetorian Guards supposedly assigned to them and why aren't they CAP (Combat Air Patrol) over these ladies?
Centcomm 21st Dec 2012, 4:30 PM edit delete reply

the pretorians were only for that room that night. Max isnt worryed about other people assualting Acantha. as for a CAP they are running at all times i just didnt depict it and theres more to that as we will find out. ( the craft has no weapons of any kind )
Tokyo Rose 21st Dec 2012, 5:00 PM edit delete reply

Acantha's very popular among the common people. What few enemies she has know better than to strike at her, and Decimus's enemies aren't stupid enough to try kidnapping or harming her to "get to him".
lalverson 21st Dec 2012, 5:58 PM edit delete reply
I would tend to think they have a CAP but it's intent is to keep a very low profile. I would think that both Maximus and the secret police find it an advantage Acantha is a bit of a rebel of youth. keeping her safe is easy as she's all over the map with little schedule. I wouldn't be all that suprized if they could take over that runner and land it safety if needed. But one thing is certain they all know exactly where it is and how many seconds it would take for "Assistance" to arrive.
Centcomm 21st Dec 2012, 7:37 PM edit delete reply

@ Ialverson , very good! low profile is very good.

yeah I forgot gloves :P
cattservant 21st Dec 2012, 7:42 PM edit delete reply

Nah, they are just tough in Nova Roma!
Centcomm 21st Dec 2012, 8:02 PM edit delete reply

cattservant 21st Dec 2012, 8:05 PM edit delete reply

They actually like weather!
Centcomm 21st Dec 2012, 8:19 PM edit delete reply

haha yes .. :D well Acantha for one doesnt mind the cold. or snow.
cattservant 21st Dec 2012, 8:27 PM edit delete reply

No doubt a factor in her popularity with the polis.

You know,
Not that it's been emphasized,
But Lynn is just as much a princess*
as Acantha is.

*(From a genetic standpoint.)
Centcomm 21st Dec 2012, 8:41 PM edit delete reply

hehe :D but whos cuter now theres a hard decision
cattservant 21st Dec 2012, 8:46 PM edit delete reply

Who loves a whiny girl?!

Ohhh I love the design of that ship!!! :D It's so sci-fi-licious!
Great page!
Centcomm 22nd Dec 2012, 9:09 AM edit delete reply

thanks you - its a really neat model!
Dragonrider 22nd Dec 2012, 6:33 AM edit delete reply

I'm beginning to get the idea that were Acantha to find herself suddenly in power, Lynn's status would not change a great deal. When all's said and done she's still Nova Roman and wants what's best for the state and Lynn gives them the chance for improvement in status quo.
Centcomm 22nd Dec 2012, 9:10 AM edit delete reply

You are quite correct, Acantha doesnt approve of the kidnapping itself - but yes Acantha is a Roma girl and does actually care for her city. there is a lot of forces at play here.
cattservant 22nd Dec 2012, 10:49 AM edit delete reply

Lynn would learn a lot more from an extended stay in Nova Roma than going to university in New Sparta.
I bet Kyle would be useful too.

I detect diplomacy in the denouement...
Centcomm 22nd Dec 2012, 7:30 PM edit delete reply

and yes Lynn could learn a lot - she has already :D

it depends - somehow I dont think the people being sent to rescue Lynn are thinking diplomaticly :D
cattservant 22nd Dec 2012, 7:52 PM edit delete reply

Diplomacy, after they get to 'know each other better'* and the Nova Romans refine their 'tourism techniques' somewhat.

*(Take each others measure, so to speak.
I can see where the Cassians might want to initiate a discreet exchange program.
I think their forthcoming interaction with the New Trojan Androids is going to be quite the techno-cultural shock to them.)
Dragonrider 23rd Dec 2012, 4:43 PM edit delete reply

Techno-cultural shock is an understatement when Little Miss Happy Trigger Finger gets to town, followed by Megacane Dolly with a Dark Angel bringing up the rear, trying to figure out how she got left in the dust by a pissed off guardian android. Nova Roma ain't never gonna be the same.
Centcomm 23rd Dec 2012, 4:48 PM edit delete reply

totally awesome comment :D thats just wow!
cattservant 23rd Dec 2012, 4:51 PM edit delete reply

The Cassians are really going to want some of those New Trojan Genuine Android Parts.
That's if they all don't commandeer a heavy lifter and apply to Centcomm for political asylum...
Centcomm 23rd Dec 2012, 5:08 PM edit delete reply

@cat hehe we shall see how it all goes down ! :D
Centcomm 23rd Dec 2012, 4:49 PM edit delete reply

oh a bit of culture shock is the least of there troubles :D
cattservant 23rd Dec 2012, 4:54 PM edit delete reply

You're back!

being a desert rat in florada isnt fun .. my roomie makes fun that i wear sweats and a jacket inside, while hes wearing shorts and a t-shirt >_<
cattservant 23rd Dec 2012, 5:13 PM edit delete reply

The longer you reside in the land of flowers, the 'thinner' your blood becomes.
Centcomm 23rd Dec 2012, 5:46 PM edit delete reply

by land of flowers do you mean Arizona or Florada :P I thought winter meant thicker blood :P
cattservant 23rd Dec 2012, 5:55 PM edit delete reply

La Florida.
The longer you reside
The less cold tolerant you become.
I think 'thicker' blood
Has to do with altitude.
Centcomm 23rd Dec 2012, 6:45 PM edit delete reply

hehe well Arizona is lower Altitude and i always heard that Arizona's had low cold tolerance - I certainly agree - most people here seem not bothered by the chilly weather where im shivering like a sheet XD
cattservant 23rd Dec 2012, 6:52 PM edit delete reply

The highest point in Florida is 345 feet.
Those cold tolerant folks you see are probably Yankees!
Centcomm 23rd Dec 2012, 7:06 PM edit delete reply

hmmm well The elevation of Phoenix, AZ is 1,124 feet, measured at the Phoenix Sky Harbor Airport. so I guess its higher elevation .. I thought it was lower.
cattservant 23rd Dec 2012, 7:27 PM edit delete reply

Your area there is a part of the upland ridges.
Here on the Mountain we are right in the heart of the Lake District of the Florida Alps!
