Critical Oversight As cliché as it might sound, the first time I met my late fiancée was when I saved her life. It was during an early mission as a part of Bulldog. She was leading a team of Darts that were tasked with exploiting a seeming breach in the Clan battle plan. I was the odd man out due to a last-minute reorganization, so I got shuffled off to join her on the run. Technically, she was in charge. That didn't last too long.
The Clans defending the planet had a major supply depot located on the other side of a mountain pass; seizing the depot would mean that not only would the Clan forces in the area be short on material, we'd have plenty of
Unwelcome Visitors If only all differences of opinion could be settled as quickly and bloodlessly as I dealt with the historian.
Normally, when I get a request from Heimdall to perform a specific task, there's a matter of give-and-take as I try to figure out how to make it happen. On occasion, what they'll ask of me is unpleasant but necessary when considered as part of the greater struggle; case in point, the battle with the Barghest pilot and how that had to go down. But on a few rare occasions, Heimdall and I see eye-to-eye on a particular problem that needs to be resolved.
This time, Heimdall didn't even need to ask me to go do something.
One of the
The Halls Of Macademia One of the sad realities of life in the Inner Sphere Solaris especially is that not all battles are fought from within a cockpit; rather, some battles are fought face-to-face. Now normally, I try to avoid windbags who just don't know what they'e talking about. But this time around, I had to say something. Fortunately, Heimdall agreed with me on this point.
A military historian noted for making rather pro-Katherine statements of late decided to unveil his new work, a partial study of Operation Bulldog that recounted how a handful of the planets fell. Thing is, the guy made the mistake of discussing a planetary invasion that I
Brand Awareness Although challenges were a little slow to come back to us, in the aftermath of Tommy's performance in the Reaches we were quick to receive a fair amount of media attention. This, in turn, led to some more corporate sponsorships.
Things got started when I was invited to a social event; I couldn't make it because I was busy tending to our new real estate arm, and so I sent Kanz in my place. After we returned to the Inner Sphere, Kanz took the last name "Olsen" to disguise his Clan heritage. He was unusually bright and inquisitive for a Clan warrior, and so spent the travel time reading what books he could get his hands on; he even got to a f

(Personal note: netiquette holds that you're supposed to not only provide sources for an online debate but, if it's a lengthy video, warn people in advance. I know that there's 8+ parts to this series, but I don't know if I'll have time to hit all eight.)

This is a fairly common debate tactic among anti-Mormons, but it actually backfires spectacularly upon closer examination. As proof, I give you the following page at pro-pagan website JC Not 4 Me .com - http://www.jcnot4me.com/Items/theology/Second%2
Fire And Ice Of course, after my bit with the Barghest, it was about two weeks' time before we had any other arena battles. Although we were still low on the totem pole as far as the rankings went, the fact that we so consistently took down larger machines and superior-ranked pilots meant that people were hesitant to directly challenge us. Granted, if the person won, they could bring our streak to an end. But if they lost, it'd be humiliation all around. The down time gave us the ability to get some training in and do some much-needed maintenance; it also gave us the chance to get some more work done on getting sponsors and a few bits of Heimdall busines
