Okay, so, I spewed about this in chat for a bit.

For NaNoWriMo, I'm going to be (hopefully) writing a story concerning a bunch of mech pilots loosely based off of some of us that get into giant robot fights and are mercenary group members and other such things.

Oh, and the tentative title is "What Cowardice Feels Like".

Current planned characters:

Mercenary Squad A: Title pending. Protagonist squad, is hired to help dethrone a planetary government.

Current members are characters based on:

- Ruggahissy: Pilots the Madcat Abraxas. Best all-around infighter of the group, serves as its leader. Has something of a classy lesbian relationship with Mimi.
- Mimi: Pilots the Ryoken Luther. Serves up as a support role and a reliable second-in-command, tends to flank enemy mechs in firefights. Has a classy lesbian relationship with Rugga.
- Outfoxd: Pilots the Atlas Suplex, generally the largest mech on the field at any given point in time. Wades into fights and draws fire the best he can. His mech has known electrical issues but he powers through them best he can.
- Deamon: Pilots the Shadow Cat Pryde. As his mech is a holdover from his previous engagements (he ripped it from his previous clan), he had to repurpose it to fit his role in the group. Long range combatant.

Qualities: Something of a 'smaller-time' group, often with outdated or just plain defective equipment. Their only mech in the assault class is their Atlas, which suffers from a few electrical issues.

Mercenary Squad B: Title pending. Rival mercenary group hired to protect the government and its 'royal' family.

Current members are characters based on:

- MK Kilmarnock: Pilots the Daishi Slaughterhouse. Is a terrifying foe in combat with a mech that has some of the most terrific damage output, as well as ability to shrug off damage. Has a tendency to taunt enemies in combat, including hitting on Rugga. Is generally rebuffed.
- Kyle: Pilots the Awesome Painkiller. Serves as a competent, if somewhat hotheaded and unreliable lancer pilot. His mech reflects his fighting style; extremely offensive, pays little heed to defense.
-Turtle Tyrant: Pilots the Catapult Snapper. A full-fledged support mech that specializes in launching missiles from afar, often from cover.

Mech repair shop: A mechanics shop favored by Squad A. Consists of a repair bay, a large shop full of weaponry and chassis pieces, and a substantial junkyard. Supplier of more than a few parts to the squad.

Characters based on:

- Betaknight: The owner of the shop and skilled mechanic. Tends to be somewhat dry in nature and isn't willing to put up with a lot of bullshit. Still quite fond and protective of, if also critical of, the members of squad A.
- Dom: Mechanical engineer and assistant of the shop. Is a master at wiring and other internal hardware, basically pieced together the Atlas Suplex's workings from scrap. Also constructed his own mech using a small Flea chassis, christened the 'Dickshark'. Drives it around and irritates the fuck out of Tre.

Planetary government: Operates as something resembling a monarchy, including a king and queen. However, rather than bearing children (in fact, they are not allowed to have kids at all), the king and queen instead select two heirs from one of 14 royal families. In this way, the best candidates to rule are chosen, not those who simply happen to be born into the right (leading to piss-poor monarchs). Also features a parliament with regularly elected officials who acts as a system of checks and balances.

Characters based on:

- Murderweasel: The selected 'prince', from the 12th family of the quatturodecim. Is the one who hired squad B to aid in the defense of the government. Is the younger twin brother of the character based off Kilmarnock. Is also a capable mech pilot, preferring a secret model called the 'Black Knight'.
- Skraal: The selected 'princess', from the 4th family of the quatturodecim. Very suspicious of Toben and his practices, seeks resolution through a different discourse. Has backup plans to try and remove Toben from the picture altogether. A capable pilot in her own right, piloting a Thanatos she commissioned and named the 'Thorncrown'.

Other characters based off of:

- Jonny: A mysterious pilot of the Thor Iajutsu, a ridiculously powerful in-fighting mech. Current role unknown.
- Naft: Mission control for Squad A. Generally listens to their bickering and tries to keep them on track with the mission.
- Espi: Mission control for Squad B. Tries to do his best for the squad he commands, but is relentlessly hounded by Richard.

I'd be interested in being a character if you need filler/minor characters. I think it'd be cool if I was like a wild-card working alone for the highest bidder.

You can throw me in as a squad member I guess. I took a look at some of the mechs and took a liking to the Shadow Cat not sure if its called the same thing in the game though.

Edit: Appears Mimi wants to me join her squad/harem and rubies were offered.

Would it be okay if I was a royal family member who is a rival to Toben?

I would very much like to be a part of this. Giant robots are cool. Not sure how teenagers fit into this world, but here I am. Piloting one of these things would be really cool as well.

EDIT: Squad Member, Military, Whatever thing you can get me a pilot in would be nice.

I'd love to be featured, with no preference to role. Do with me what you feel is appropriate (or inappriopriate, this is your story after all).

Suspect you might be getting a bit volunteer overloaded but I'd love to be a cameo or squaddie or team engineer or w/e in need if there's space.

Some kind of support role would be fun if it's non-cameo, really. That aforementioned engineer or anything else you might need would be cool.
