"Minmei wants to be a story where she's a veritech pilot?"
"Yep."
"So, it's a fantasy movie, right?"


*Actually, one of the early fan magazines for anime and specifically Robotech...it may have been an early edition of Protoculture Addicts, before it went big-format and general anime coverage...actually featured a fan-drawn trope-recycler comic depicting the dogfighting over Macross Island...the lead character, a woman combat pilot, is a spitting image of Minmei. After her wingman and lover, obviously a darker-haired Roy Fokker stand-in, gets killed, she quits the force(or at least the flight line), having effectively redshirted him by trying to tell him she was pregnant by him.

A VF-1 roars off the catapult with Minmei at the controls... and promptly crashes into the city below.

"Did anyone find out if Minmei knew how to fly!?!"

Charon: (Looking at the wrecked Veritech in his new hot tub) "OH COME ON!" :badbad:

"Folks...the catapult sling is supposed to LET GO of the aircraft at the end of its run."
"...oops...."

Minmei's VF smears him all over the landscape.

"Yeah ... I think the catapult still needs adjustment."

"Mission Log: Lt. Scott Bernard reporting. Progress towards Reflex Point slow. Got temporarily lost during detour through Rocky Mountains. Rations were low and we were forced to eat our forager-scout. There was not much rejoicing, though our Biotechnician did go back for seconds. Progress has picked up as the mission has gotten back on track."

And new friom the people who brought you the Pathfinders. the Continuing Adventures of Mauve Squadron, and Ice Guard.
Beige Squadron!

"Ah...why?"
"Because the writer is too chicken$#!+ afraid to mess up his new Robotech RPG Tactics figures by committing to a paint scheme, seeing as there will be no new figurines made. So, we're stuck in default base molded colors."
":Oh."
"Oh, sure, we're facing the fearsome Zentraedi Grey Squad, but at least those mass-produced stinkers are already used to operational anonymity."
"That, and they already ambushed us once by hiding against a grey asphalt parking lot."
"Yeah, rotters...."

The Shemarrian Fan Creations thread over in Rifts where we document a Shemarrian Nation that kicked ARCHIE-3 out and established its own culture. Lots of munchkiny goodness as their tech tree advances.
Part of their culture allows for normal folk to be adopted into the Shemarrian Nation as a second/lower class/pets/little brothers/sisters, and like the Battletech Kerensky Clans, the Shemarrians may take POWs they find worthy and honorable as bonded probationers(if you're a scumball, you're either outright enslaved and put to hard labor or just executed on the spot), who act as temporary servants/apprentices. If they continue to show honor and integrity, after a period of time the EShemar let them go with a promise to not attack the Shemarrian clans(like Civil War bail) or a promise to repay the clans at some future time with a favor or service....or preferred application to become a full-fledged Shemarrian tribesmember. Favored bondsmen may receive special training or gifts when they are released, like a weapon or augmentation.
It's all very warrior-culture stuff.
As an example, in a series of vignettes, the Sailor Senshi were defeated in straightout combat by their Shemarrian lookalikes and served out a year or so of (subjective) time as bondsmaidens. Sailor Moon came back with a Glitterboy armor, Sailor Saturn with ninja training, Sailor Mars was taught a version of flame magic that apparently requires her to dance nearly naked to set up the magic, Mercury went nerd-rapture, Sailor Venus got a robotic wolfpack to follow her around, Jupiter spent time mucking out robotic animal stables, Uranus got used as a punching bag, Neptune learned how to MacGuyver, and Pluto apparently spent the whole time getting unbent. Tuxedo Mask got left home(though he did run into a Russian cyborg knight who liked throwing plasma-blossom mortar shells).

Heh!, nice real nice, have you ever considered submitting the Shemarrian Nation as a rouge faction of Archie's Shemaarians?

Admittedly the macguffin that allows them to split off successfully is based on a Palladium canon monster in Aliens Unlimited, but I regard the EShemar faction as too character-shield breaking and munchkiny(especially in its later posts), plus it's rather a joint effort of several people, to be a successful Rifter entry.
I'm happy to just keep punching out new gizmos and characters(it's like whittling; as my father said to people watching him carve animals and balls-in-chains; "I'm really just making woodchips").

Too bad it would make for a good fan made forum release.

I wonder what would happen if Zor suddenly appeared in their lands buck naked.

Be treated like any other buck naked d-bee.
If he made a nuisance of himself, he'd be disciplined, if he proved a threat, he'd be killed.
If he just lay there all pathetic like and wasn't in any immediate danger to himself or others, he'd be turned over to one of the communities under the Shemarrian aegis to be taken care of.

Given that he's a psycho obsessive, manic depressive I have to wonder what kind of psyatric treatment he would get from them if they deemed him worthy of being saved.

Psionic mindwipe and work therapy.

Only if his level of bug s**t lunacy didn't mind warp the psyker in question.

It would be interesting to see what would happen of a small mixed tribe of the Gals ended up on a Zent Flagship or a Robotech Master's Mothership.
