    Hello dusters!

    This is the OOC thread for Deserts of Mars, my first "down the well" thread based on the surface of Mars. We will be exploring the planet, its culture, and many landmarks along the way.

    Please use this thread to coordinate, discuss potential ideas, and basically anything that is relevant to the thread that can't be said in character.

    I will also be periodically updating the Mars map below as new locations are discovered or added, new cities, bases, black ops sites, landmarks, etc. If you would like anything added, please let me know.

    To zoom in, right click and select "open in new window/tab".

    @Haiki Haruro I added "First Landing" to the map per your post, made it the site of the Ares 1 mission.

    Well, I don't see too much of a reason for Harland to be out at Eagle Base. He'd most likely be back at Nova Londres. How can we get him looped in?

    So I'm going to update the map over the week with more bases, but my character is currently flying patrols out of MCRB Persephone, to the west of Nova Londres. Looking at your character's bio, they seem pretty well connected so perhaps doing some sort of tour of the base?

    Or my last post outlines a source of potential tension in the MCR due to repeated nomad incursions on remote bases & outposts. Perhaps they could be at Persephone because of this?

    Ya, makes a lot more sense for him to be at Persephone. Either a tour of the base, Nova Londres, and/or the nomad incursion could work.

    The incursions are happening much further from settled territory, so it could be related to them, but they definitely wouldn't be attacking somewhere as developed and heavily defended as Persephone, Nova Londres etc, but doing a tour and/or meeting pilots & patrol teams could give a reason for our characters to potentially cross paths. Maybe even a ride/fly-along?

    Hmm. I could either throw you a SIGINT tip while you're out, or fly out to meet you and investigate it?

    I am planning to drop Haiki onto the surface on a remote engineering or terraforming station, some place which they can use to load and unload contraband without raising suspicion. I was initially thinking about something close to the polar caps but if she needs to be closer to Persephone what about the northern part of Kasei Vallis (west of the Ares 3 landing site)? Any suggestions?
    By the way, I really like the map, looking forward to exploring the surface with you guys

    @Mai Shen perfect!

    @Haiki Haruro no need to be physically close to persephone if you dont want, Karen flies across huge swathes of the land so anywhere works. Hell you could even integrate @Neamheaglach 's SIGINT with your character's smuggling operation into some sort of 'Hey we found smugglers, go check this signal out" kind of situation.

    So, @Haiki Haruro, are you an undercover Martian military person on a smuggling op or you actually a smuggler? Was hard to tell from your post.

    @Neamheaglach The character is actually a smuggler, no connections to the MCRN at this point. Feel free to provide SIGINT about the operation going on in Kasei Valles, I have a strong feeling that things are bound to go sideways there anyway pretty soon

    No stress, chances are things will have moved on a little when you're back and we can integrate you into the story nicely. Talk soon!

    @Haiki Haruro I'm gonna be giving your character a bit of a fright on the next day's patrol ;)

    @Rajendra Vaikar where is your soldier patrolling?
