Free As A Bird 1 - Introduction
« on: June 21, 2017, 11:31:19 PM »
Hi everybody, Freebird here.

Some of you might remember me from back in the old days, when I was running with the Reformers around the vicinity of the Four Seasons enclave, back in what used to be Missouri. If so, hope you’re doing well out there. Heck, a few of you might remember me from way back in the really old days, when I used to run around with the Douglas County Avengers. In that case, sorry and/or fuck you, depending on why you remember that stuff. Or maybe you’re somebody over here in the Recession, just reading this board for fun or something. If that’s who you are, hi neighbor.

I guess I’ll do a little nutshell introduction for anybody who doesn’t know me. I’m a Taker who made it out. Thanks to hard work, good fortune, and (especially) good friends, I made the bank I needed to retire and got set up in a safe spot on the nice(r) side of the fence. It’s not a half bad life, I do what I enjoy, I take care of my kid, and I don’t worry too much about the Z stuff. But you know, sometimes it’s a little boring. Good problem to have, I know.

Anyway, I thought I might take a shot at writing a few little columns or posts or whatever, to share my views about what things are like out there in the Loss, maybe give y’all who are out there a little advice or something. I guess I kinda won the game, so maybe I’ve got some tips on how to play it. But it’s take it or leave it type stuff. If you think I’m talking out of my ass, say so.

Stay tuned for more.
Stay free as a bird out there,
Freebird

Bullshit.  Stop trying to play off a dead man's cred.


Nice to have you about, I listened to the Redeemers playthrough.

Maybe you shouldn't spend so much time talking about things you don't know?

Freebird ran with my Pixie back in the day. They saved each other's skin plenty. I know he made it out because I wouldn't be out if he hadn't. She'd come and vouch for Freebird herself but she doesn't have much time for jumping on LifeLines these days with Med School.

Freebird - wherever you ended up after that crazy flight, stay safe. Stay free.

Didn't you post old stuff on Ubiq about stories you had with your old crew?

Had a problem getting it on Ubiq though. Ran into some Technical issues. Could even say Difficulties.

I'd love to read the rest of your adventures. Got to page 6.

Thanks for the prompt, Varlaax. I didn't come through on this writing plan. Life got busy. Maybe I'll get back to it here in a bit.

What's your opinion on freelancer crews Freebird?

As in Takers who work together but not part of a formal crew.

Like the 10k. The Ancient Greek Mercenaries. They were happy seeing the sea. Couldn't mistake it for a lake. Or even a few lakes.

I think I said this elsewhere, but I'm dubious. It's dangerous to go out there with folks you don't know. Even if they're 100% trustworthy, you just don't have the same degree of familiarity with their capabilities and instincts as you'd have with a veteran team that's worked together.

But hey, you take jobs where you can find 'em, and you work job however you gotta. If it's working for those guys up in 10k, more power to 'em.

Hey Freebird, what happened to Pixie?

Did she get involved with the 10k group?
