  1. I think an information service/network is critical for independents traders and commercials to go about their business in an informed and calculated manner. Intercorp will definately be setting up some sort of system, maybe we should talk? Trading and commercial activities will be our livelihood, as I said above I don't think we should be out there wasting a lot of time and energy organizing embargoes and trying to change parts of the Universe to suit us. We should be masters of adaptation to take full advantage of every situation. At the end of the day if a trader does not feel safe going into a region, then don't. There will be plenty of other "safe" regions to do business in. [ 02-06-2002, 09:59: Message edited by: Guybert ]
  2. quote:Originally posted by T-WOPR: MUTUAL PROTECTION UNION: Statement of Formulation Mission Statement The general mission of the Mutual Protection Union (The Union, MPU) is to protect commercial commanders from the common dangers to Free Trade: raiders, mercenaries, and aggressive police forces. This will be accomplished through the economic power of loosely united Sects and individual commanders. There will be no need to hire mercenaries to protect from mercenaries, the defense will be the trade. If a region has no trade, how can it survive?Umm ... correct me if I'm wrong but anyone can participate in trading activity right? If the Mutual Protection Union decides to blacklist a region, the dwellers within that region can do their own trading or hire mercenaries to do it for them. Trading will go on whether the MPU boycots a region or not. If a region is especially dangerous either don't go there or hire protection. A few traders choosing to ignore a region will not bring those within it to their knees. In my opinion the only people suffering economically here will be the traders and commercials belonging to your union. A cunning trader or commercial will actually be able to turn dodgy regions to his/her advantage by establishing contacts, building relationships and charging a premium to do business there 'cos others will be too scared to. At the end of the day independents are independent because they're in it for themselves. Just my thoughts .... [ 02-05-2002, 09:28: Message edited by: Guybert ]
  3. You're right, there aren't many independents out there at the moment. Once BCO kicks off I think there will be a lot more around. With BCO the full potential for a life as an independent caste will be released. Bring it on baby.....
  4. As my esteemed colleague has already said, good luck on you enterprise T-Wopr. However, it seems once again that there is massive misinterpretation as to what Intercorp is all about. We are here to provide a range of SERVICES to ANYONE. Unless you are an officer of Intercorp the only rules you need to abide by when working with Intercorp is do nothing to disrespect the name. YOU ARE FREE TO COME AND GO TO USE OUR SERVICES AT ANY TIME. For a fee we can provide a selection of jobs/missions to undertake, insurance against loss of cargo, a cheap source of fuel, financing for ship upgrades, investment opprtunities for your hard earned wedge, a source of information as to the state of the galaxy and what areas to avoid, armed protection when trading in dodgy regions and much much more. Of course if you choose to become an officer of Intercorp, we can offer benefits on top of all this. We are here to help when and where we can, we're not a threat to anyones independant status. In fact, using Intercorp will provide more chances of pursuing a (very challenging) successful independent career by providing services aimed to make this possible.

Even the worst of the new Star Trek or Farscape episodes beats the best of the BG episodes. BG always reminded me of Logans Run ... or was it the other way around? Anyway, great concept but crap storylines with absolutely zero plot development. Which now I think of it reminds me of the Dukes of Hazzard ... aarrgh

DWMC was so awful, in the space of ten minutes I was violently sick, went down with scabies and lost my girlfriend - all because of that soul destroyingly pants pile of horse snot. The producers of that film are worse than Hitler. Incidently, I get to take my newly aquired, tall, teachery like future EX to see LoTR tomoz night. Yay! It's Christmaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaas! Dude, where's you sense of humour?

  9. quote:Originally posted by Remo Williams: LOL! RP I just had a couple questions before I consider joining.(not) 1. Does Intercorp give out christmas bonuses? 2. What type of retirement Plan does Intercorp offer? 3. If I joined the raider division and attack and intercorp trader, boarded his ship. Shoved the cmdr. out of the airlock. Then made off with his ship an cargo. Would I still be in good standings with Intercorp for a job well done for my division? /RP 1&2 Come and speak with your local El Dorado representative. We can always work out an investment plan that suits your requirements. Also, we offer very competitive rates if you are thinking about trading in your rusty old Nightstar and upgrading to that nice shiny Battlecruiser MkIII you've seen at the dealership. 3 Remember, Intercorp tends to look unfavourably on any malicious interference in their business and has access to the services of a number of mercenaries.... HeHe, I can't wait!
  10. quote:Originally posted by Cmdr Jeffery Eu: Riga, TRD, Fendi, Guybert, Kenada please email me with your intentions. Lets stick with it and see how it pans out. This was/is shaping up to be a lot of fun. IMO we should keep going as the potential of the open ended concept created by the SC in BCO will be the best thing that has EVER happened to PC gaming!
  11. quote:Originally posted by Cmdr Jeffery Eu: Gotta conserve time to allow me more time to play the game now that RL is really clashing with my game time. Yeah, I've noticed that too. RL gets in the way A LOT with this game.
  12. This is all becoming very interesting. Intercorp is out to provide asisstance to non fleeters in the BC Universe and to be honest, we can only imagine at this stage how it will work out and try our best to pursue the objectives we've set out. We've created a set of giudelines which we think will form a working structure with which this can be achieved. But, without doubt, this structure is dynamic and will possibly need to modified to suit the realism of actual multiplayer game play (is that an oxymoron?). That being said, the purpose of Intercorp is not to intentionally position itself against any of the military organizations. But as I have become involved in this, I am finding it very curious to see the almost aggressive reactions from some of the fleet representatives towards Intercorp. Shades of xenophobia creeping in there? Anyway, we are always open to suggestions as to how we can provide a better, more useful organization. Myself and my fellow directors will be here to respond as best we can. Remember this is not a military organization, we are independents, so our outlook and methods will not jibe with yours 100% of the time. We're all here trying to do our job and have fun.
  13. quote:Originally posted by Spuzzum: I don't have a picture of the slacks available, though. But how many people need to see what a pair of slacks looks like? Do they have pleats in the front or are they 'flat'? (Flats are much trendier )
  14. Smiley, I know this is not the thread for this but since it was mentioned. Click on the Intercorp/El Dorado link in my sig. This is a Corporation being set up to help non fleeters with all sorts of in game resources and provide an extra dimension to mp gaming. Also, go to the miscellaneous fleet discussion section to see more indie stuff.
  15. Okay okay I'l wear a suit instead like 007. Now thats a cool idea. Could add a bit of class to the Indies. I imagine we are generally considered to be a bit of a motley lot. We, here at Intercorp, should look into whether 'required dress', whilst working for the Corporation, should include a tie.
  16. quote:Originally posted by Fendi: [QBT-shirt and jeans? I'm thinking more along the lines of Mad Max.[/QB] LOL. You going to sit at your PC with motorcycle boots, a leather codpiece and full face helmet on?
  17. quote:Originally posted by Fendi: I'm still trying to figure out what to wear as my "uniform" for my pic. One thing for sure you'll see a happy man. Being an Indie, I assume jeans and Tee shirt will be acceptable?
  18. I can't see a whole lot of chicks falling for the men in THAT uniform!
  19. The Warmonger has got to be the best "Indie" ship. Fast and packs a punch. Let's face it, you don't see many mercenary's around the world with Nimitz class carriers in their arsenal now do you?
  20. SC Thanks for staying true to your dream. This game is mind blowing. The scope is so huge and in that sense very realistic. Just how you would imagine it should be if it were real. I've been playing for hours and still haven't a clue what I'm doing!?! Awesome...
  21. SC I'm extremely impressed. Thanks very much, I'm certain this game will live up to my excessive expectations. Love the artwork and manual. Got home late last night and only had time to install it and check it booted up OK and the controls (joystick/mouse etc) all seemed to be doing what they should. No problems at all. The graphics are stunning, even better than the E2 demo (or is just my over excited imagination?). One question though, as I said it was late last night and my eyesight wasn't perhaps at it's best, the HUD seems coarser in apperance than that in the E2 demo. That is, the numbers and lines seem thicker. Is this the case? Is it possible to make them finer? (OK that's 2 questions). I appreciate you have a ton more important issues on your plate right now, but if you can find the time to respond I'd be grateful. Also, if this is covered in the FAQ or VCF then I apologise in advance, just thought I'd ask since I was posting my impressions. Cheers.
  22. Shingen (and all you other Indies out there). Just keep in mind that you can come and use Intercorps resources at any time, with no obligation to stick with them for the long term. For example picture yourself as an up and coming assassin in the galaxy and doing OK. All of a sudden, your usual contacts and leads for juicy kils dries up (or has been taken out more likely). There you are, without a contract, bills to pay (fuel, food, gas, mortgage, diapers etc) and a great kick ass engine upgrade sitting at your local battlecruiser dealership with your name written all over it. So what do you do? Go door to door (airlock to airlock) trying to flog your valuable skills in vain? Or, do you head to your local Intercorp agency, peruse their exhaustive lists of juicy "take out" assignments they have on file. Select one that takes your fancy agree with the basic Intercorp ground rules, execute it (sic) and there you are rolling in cool hard wedge? Free to go off and do your own thing once again. You've got to admit, even for the "staunchly" independent types, Intercorp will be a pretty handy facility to have around.
