Even with that, the question of non-miners running around lavaland raiding the ruins is still relevant. Dont need a key to grab the antique laser gun. Hell, even just miners avoiding everything but megafauna and the ruins.

[MRP] What is it about space/mining gear that makes obtaining it not powergame regardless of job?

Something that drives me up the wall on manuel is the fact that you get bonked for even taking a stun baton from a beepsky... yet, somehow, it's totally fine for an assistant to beeline for an EVA suit and go to space an grab a fucking 40mm grenade launcher that's capable of insta-critting most peop...

The issue isn't the game mode, it's the fact that players get too competitive and that people think doing fuck all with their metaclique constitutes the only legitimate form of roleplay. Players need to be more flexible with who and in what situations they roleplay. Security and culties need to sto...

In the previous round on Manuel, a syndie woke up, beelined for the bomb, and detonated it, because "The station was compromised" In reality, there was 1 traitor on station, 1 captured HOP, and 1 guy there for RP reasons (completely non-hostile). I ahelped this and was told by (i think) ju...
