The beauty of it was its plausibility. I had to read it twice to realize

someone was pulling my leg. But only because I am somewhat familiar with

electro-magnetic propulsion. 'Tho' I'm sure to be behind the times now.

Team Ronin presently has 7 full time members and 7 associates. Three of
us have played and practiced together form the beginning. The beginning
being app three months ago. The rest are either occasional players or

The beauty of it was its plausibility. I had to read it twice to realize
someone was pulling my leg. But only because I am somewhat familiar with
electro-magnetic propulsion. 'Tho' I'm sure to be behind the times now.

Team Ronin presently has 7 full time members and 7 associates. Three of
us have played and practiced together form the beginning. The beginning
being app three months ago. The rest are either occasional players or
new recruits, (three young guys, in their 20s).

We are mostly in our late 30s to early 40s, not exactly youthful. We try
to make up for our lack of experience, skill, agility, speed, stamina,
etc. by being treacherous. So far so good. We are NOW starting to win

The above may seem a cruel attitude but I really enjoy this game and
want the team to be the best it can be. To this end I must have
dedicated players. They can be and are complete newbies but must be as
enthused as I. This enthusiasm and team esprit, (e.g. never surrender)
is why we have won games against highly experienced/skilled teams.

For example, in a recent 30 min. game one of our older players got
caught behind poor cover separated from the rest, gun jamming due to low
pressure in his tank and under heavy fire, was asked to surrender his
answer is censored. He got hosed pretty good but he bought us precious
time. In another game last week another of our older players found
himself out of CO2 while taking on a heavily fortified bunker that
completely dominated our right flank. His fire team was down to him and
a recruit trying out for the team that had never played before and like
all "try-outs" was issued a Stingray.

This big, (6'4', 260) middle aged (41) out of shape player low crawled
close enough to throw a grenade. Wiped out the three opponents and when
