Yeah, obscure wars are a deep well of gameable ideas. I wouldn't be surprised if Glancy had a few Toyota War scenario ideas.

Hahaha, I love it. Throwing base raiders into another universe to basically save Truman Show extras is a great premise for a scenario. Maybe have the clients keep scrying on the PCs as they do their job and have them do extra side jobs for fate points "Oh I hate that guy, go kick his ass!" etc/

I see what you mean about the song. I think on the lifelines forums, someone has started a music playlist thread so this would be a good addition for it.

Need to figure out how to make 2d images from 3d models so I can make a fan scenario of Zygote.

Tons of great headlines and images from old newspapers here:

damn those are good photos. Dig the lounge pic especially. Does the book have good maps/floor plans?

anarchist perk deck maxed out plus a light vest and skill that gives plus 20 vest armor

bullseye aced shotgun skills to overkill basic
then steakout shotgun and berserker and frenzy aced
and 000 buckshot in shotgun]
iron man basic for more armor
ammo bags for deployable
a judge shotgun with HE for shields and dozer masks

shotguns are better at lower accuracy because pellets spread farther
and one pellet does full damage
so more chance of scoring headshots
headshots regen armor

shotgun cq and close by aced
you want reload speed and big magazine for this
just hold down trigger to clear a room

This podcast reviews bad books and makes fun of them. I enjoyed this episode about God's Debris, a book by Scott Adams

I bookmarked some of those fishing shows. Look pretty entertaining.

Yeah, Caleb has that book and I believe he learned of both stories from it.

From Reddit:

Gou Tanabe has been putting some Lovecraft stories to Manga form for the past few years, he's got a collection coming out in July in English containing The Hound, The Temple, and The Nameless City. He's also done The Outsider, Haunter in the Dark, and The Color out of Space, and he's currently doing Into the Mountains of Madness. So far there isn't any word on whether we'll see those translated to English. I've put some of the images from the manga into an album below.

holy shit that's awesome

Play the tutorial levels to learn the core basics.

Stealth can be fun but it requires a lot more knowledge of how the game works than normal loud heists. All stealth levels can be soloed so don't try stealth with random pubbies.

You can create different skillsets by going to the skills menu and hitting S. You can rename each skillset so you have one for stealth, one for medic, one for ammo bags, one for drill skills etc.

You can do the same with inventory profiles - bottom center of inventory screen. You can also choose a different skillset with each profile so you can customize a loadout for stealth, one for drills, one for a medic/team leader type.

The single most useful skill in the game is Inspire aced since you instantly pick up a downed player from about 9 meters away. It can only be used once every 20 seconds though.

Learn about perk decks and focus on filling out one perk deck to max before you start on another. Good starter perk decks: muscle, armorer, anarchist, crew chief, gambler, in that order. Hitman and yakuza are garbage. Others vary, but require specific builds to work well.

Don't forget to equip the perk deck.

Try to focus on doing a few things well rather than scatter skill points around. Good skills to aim for

Inspire, aced
Iron Man, Aced
overkill basic (if you use shotguns)
Swan Song, Aced (especially with inspired ace, then you can pick someone up and then move to a safe spot so teammate can pick you up)
Frenzy and Berserker aced (very powerful but very dangerous - low health. Best combined with anarchist, since armor is not affected by health penalty)
Body Expertise, Aced

Try to bring double medic bags or double ammo bags. They are always useful on loud jobs. First aid kits are more for dodge builds and I don't recommend bothering with dodge until you get used to the game.

Sentry turrets are okay for lower difficulties but joker cops are EXTREMELY powerful IF AND ONLY IF you get every single joker skill aced. If you ace all 3 skills (joker, partners in crime, and confident) you can have 2 cops with 99% damage resistance. They can tank a lot of enemy aggression.

stick to overkill (3 skulls) and lower until you are at least level 90 and are comfortable with the game. Mayhem (4 skulls) and higher difficulties ramp up QUICK. One Down (6 skulls) is total bullshit and should be avoided unless you are dumb and a masochist like me.

Infamy up to level 5 gives bonus skill points. If you infamy, buy a bunch of guns before you reset so you can sell them and get your cash back after you go infamous. Infamy 6 and beyond is just for bonus masks and cheevos.

Good luck with the heistery!
