I mentioned skyrates elsewhere, but I know that some of us have started in on playing.

Want a thread to discuss who your characters are, goals, things you've discovered, plane builds you like?

Dig in!

I've got four characters

My main is Neko Nushi - a rather honorable and dashing cat. I've already got him in a Tier 3 plane and I hope to have him into either the Purple or the Brown faction (probably purple) by Sunday night.

My secondary is Gundarson - a brutish boar. I use Gundarson to try out various combat mods. He's actually got more flight time than Neko 'cause I use him for a lot of hunts so his air time is almost always maxed out. If you want to talk combat, sit down with Gundarson.

My tertiary is Grimoin - Grimoin I use for a variety of stuff. Mainly experimenting with various plane builds, exploring trade routes. If there's 2 different planes in a tier that look like good combat models, I shovel one off on Grimoin.

My last character is Springheeled Jack. I play with performance planes and maneuverability with Jack. He hops about doing short cargo runs or long distance island hopping. Lots of speedy speedy performance planes, too.






Far and away my favorite combat tactic/move so far is the Airbrake. I spiral until I've got a good bead on a pirate, move in close, then airbrake so that I can sit and spray them. Up your Gumption and Airbrake a couple of ranks each and its nothing to do it over and over in combat.

No problem Absence. I've been rating you as honorable when I remember to do so.

Amongst my skyrates, Neko's the only one I care about being rated honorable.. you can call the other three infamous if'n ya want.

As of right now, I've got 3 of my 4 characters into Tier 3 planes AND Neko Nushi has joined the Court of Violets.

Let the Missions to gain Influence commence!

I'm torn for which faction to join once I reach 24 flight hours... Either the Azure League or the Court of Violets... *thinks*

Oh, I think you've got plenty of time to think. You've actually got to make it out to one of the Faction capitals to join. You'll need at least a Tier 3 plane and some skill ranks in Fuel Efficiency to make that.


Gundarson joined the red faction earlier today!

I guess I should let you all know the route I'm going with my characters like Seraph did..


Filia Goth - My primary character will be going purple (aka Court of Violets) and she would like to be rated Honorable

Yasmine Darkheart - I don't have a color for her yet, she might be green, but she's currently chasing "grimoin" (it's from an old talislanta game we were playing...) and she can be infamous if you want, because even though she started out honorable, she has fallen some from grace...

Sylvan - I'm leaving up to Seraph, but i'm thinking it might be nice for her to be green (only for the fact her name means forest) but *shrugging* it doesn't matter to me on the honorable or infamous, Ask Seraph!

Snow Petit - She's also a character that I'm letting Seraph handle (he's far better at this game than I am..) I have no idea of where she's going or what she's thinking.. You'll have to ask Seraph for the H or I on her too...

I start on the 12/1 and am called Zaymar

I hope to be honerable and wil mainly just ferry goods and mabye patrol when i am ritcher and more advanced.

I will probably join The Azure League because it seems the most honerable

I'm not sure what to spend my flight, combat and trading points on....

hmm....

Darx was asking earlier about plane names.


So, here's some more info:

Springheeled Jack flies The London Terror
(currently a Valkyrie but I'm looking to upgrade to something less punch-punch-punch and more finesse and style. don't get me wrong, the Valk's a great plane - good armor and a heavier gun than other's in it's class, but its got no speed, no oomph.)

Grimoin pilots the Grey Ghost
(currently a Requin. Damn, but that plane is a fast little spitfire)

Gundarson captains the Boar's Head
(currently a Halifax. Darx, if you enjoyed the Mastiff, upgrade to a Halifax when you get the chance. The only bad thing about a Hali is that all those points you spent buying fancy flying manuevers are wasted. The Hali just soars and shoots. And carries a huge cargo.)

Neko Nushi's plane is Grimoin (recognize that name do ya?)
(Currently a Chapparal. Really good all-around tier 3 plane. small MG mount in the front, Medium to the rear. good range and not too shabby cargo compliment)

Only 7 members are allowed in a wing, so i might see if we can make a second one if people still want in and the first one gets full..

Yeah, I (or someone else hint*hint*) can always add a Wing to a skyland that isn't full (each skyland can only hold 5 wings). Just let us all know.


Since the wing can only currently hold 7 members, I've only got Neko Nushi in this one since he's my main character. But I'd consider having another one of my characters join a wing elsewhere.

I'm moving up into the Tier 5 planes currently. Once you hit those larger cargo capacities (like OMG the Tier 5 blimp + cargo efficiency skill), you can really start racking up skill points in Trade.

which is good because blimps are strange in combat.


the net result of this is that Gundarson is becoming more of a Trader than a combat-pilot.

I'm up to Tier 5 planes at the moment. Working on gearing up to Tier 6


blimps... are... interesting. They take a whole new skill set when it comes to combat, can go huge distances, but are slow as molasses on a cold day.

Ok, update.

Neko Nushi - Seahawk (kitted with 2 flak tubes and a howitzer), Purple Faction, CK Flight Crew

Gundarson - Barracude, Red Faction

Grimoin - Dauntless (kitted with a howitzer out front, flak tube to the rear), Brown Faction

Spring Heeled Jack - Dauntless (kitted with a long-arm out front, flak tube to the rear), Blue Faction
[Note: I was in a Mantis for SHJ, but I seriously did not like that plane. Not sure why, but it just wasn't working out. So, he's in a Dauntless now too.]
