weren't we just discussing what sourcebooks were in use? I guess the
question is then, since I would hate to have to retcon the ODIN stuff out,
when do we want to say Target: UCAS becomes fair game and the Containment
Zone goes down? Which is, of course, not to say that Chicago won't have
problems for quite a while after, nor will it look much better than Beirut
for even longer. But there won't be any large openly-active hives running
around in the streets anymore.
Around a month ago, I was helping Matb on a story where he wanted his
character to visit the newly-opened and still war-torn Chicago area. With
the list already discussing Target: UCAS and all, we figured that it had
gained sufficient dissemination and acceptance to be accepted in the game
world. Hense, the most recent post by NewzJunkie (also a prod in Matb's
direction to get back to me on what's going on). But if we want to say
the CZ is still up, then that changes things considerably.
I'd like to settle this by consensus some time soon so that the various
groups who have business in or around Chicago can be sure to have their
worldviews match. Technically, FASA has Chaptain Chaos posting the State
of the Union address April 5th, claiming that the UCAS military and Ares
had cleared out Chicago and were dropping the Zone, but the date of the
actually completion of the mission is not exacly set in stone for the
P.S. Anybody heard when Rigger BB 2.0 is due?
