Only withdrew when physically dragged. Witnesses: MSgt. McCarthy, Sgt. Westervelt

  11. Just as with the weekly lore discussion, we're going to be doing some weekly character questions. To follow the theme of service, this week's discussion is about enlistment. Why did your character sign up? Was it a genuinely better option than staying where they were? Were they just a through-and-through patriot? Do they still feel that way? Were they seeking travel and adventure? Did their family push them into it? The reason for a character being on the server is an important part of who they are. What's the driving force behind your character? Why did they enlist?
  12. We're going to be doing a weekly series of lore discussions from here on, so you guys can have input in what we consider canon for the server, and generally to promote discussion and awareness of the wider world of the server's universe. If players post stuff we think is particularly good, we'll incorporate it into the server's lore. The topic this week is service. Enlistment in the Mobile Infantry is widely considered to be the toughest way to earn citizenship, though perhaps the easiest to sign up to. What are some other ways you can think of? Do garbage collectors sign up for mind-numbing five year stints to earn their right to vote? Are toilets cleaned in the name of the Federation by those looking for a license to have children? Do cargo haulers everywhere snore through their transit routes, dreaming of the status citizenship brings? What routes to citizenship do you imagine? Would they be popular? Looked down on? Respected? Seen as a pale shadow of true service in the military?

    [IC] Trainings and You

    So you've noticed people are shit. You want to make them less shit. Congratulations, you've taken personal responsibility for something. Now don't fuck it up. EDGE. Explain, Demonstrate, Guide, Enable. Explain what you're teaching. Demonstrate how it works. Guide troopers through it step by step, then enable them to do it themselves. Congratulations, you've taught a skill. A skill is important. Don't teach fifteen things at once. Teaching 'CQB' is teaching fifteen things at once. Teach one, maybe two. How to take corners. How to identify a safe shot. How to avoid skylining. Something that can be grasped quickly and retained. Engage. Don't lecture. Have them do it, in the hangar, or in a sim. Give them a taste of it for real. Keep soft skills in mind. Troopers will never have to form a human pyramid in the field, but they will have to communicate, coordinate, and carry their squads. Never ever ever tell people to do something without any briefing or prep, watch them do it badly, then tell them why they fucked up. This isn't training. This is punishment. If you're going to do this, give them the instruction that makes them fuck up. Make it a demonstration of why doing something the wrong way is stupid. Don't just push them into it and call them idiots. Keep it short and to the point. MI aren't known for long attention spans. You won't get anything in after half an hour or so. When someone does something right, encourage them, even if it isn't the thing you're teaching, never ignore someone doing something right. -Vickers
