  1. One of the story beats I'd like to keep, which throws a wrench into the Camp Atterbury angle, are the training units in Knox fleeing with the trainees currently in basic training.

    Do we know if there was much for early warning of the nuclear attacks?  I know in FO4 it seems like probably not but... ?

  2. So Fallout 76 we were discussing the idea of Army personnel from Fort Knox fleeing into West Virginia as that is the closest military installation to the state.  Over the ensuing twenty-five years they conducted dozens of missions to the nearest military installations to recover personnel and equipment.

    As a jumping off point, below are some of the closest military installations to West Virginia.

    Last night at Bethesda's game conference during E3 Fallout 76 was officially revealed as 100% online and persistent survival gaming experience.

    Nearly all of us here in the 47th hold the Fallout franchise near and dear to hearts and have hoped for an online Fallout game for years, if not decades.

    That moment has finally arrived!

    Fallout 76 is scheduled to be released on 14 NOV 18, this year, and I am officially launching the 47th Legion into it!

    There's still a lot that remains to be seen about how exactly the always-online aspect works but we do know it'll support a large enough simultaneous player population to make the game feasible for Legion-wide play.

    Below is the initial teaser and the E3 trailer for Fallout 76!


  4. Hey Vande, welcome :)

    We're doing pretty good.  We got heavy into Mechwarrior a few months ago and then things got really slow around the end of November.  We just recently jumped back into The Division though and it's been a lot of fun.  There's actually lots of stuff to do.  Still just a shooter-looter but it's been good.

    How ya been?  What ya been up to?

  5. Talked about it a bit on Discord but I recently jumped back into The Division and since we've been doing a whole lot of nothing the past three months we'll officially post The Division as our Thursday/Sunday ops.

    Usual times, will get the calendar updated.

    Thursday:  2000 - 2100 CST

    Sunday: 1900 - 2100 CST

  6. Figured I'd do a quick update.  I'll probably do some pics after next month because that'll be three months lifting but the results are already pretty pronounced and I'm quite pleased.

    Overall, I'm down about 15 lbs but I had to get off keto as I was unable to eat the calories I need to keep up with my lifting routine which is six days a week and a combination of the Thor workout and 5x5 Stronglifts.  You can check out my routine here.

    I'm burning anywhere from just shy of 2k calories per workout to as much as 2,500 and on keto the fat just makes everything so rich that I found it hard to eat in great quantity.  As a result, I was getting calorie failures in the gym where my muscles wouldn't tire out and fail but would abruptly stop responding altogether and that was getting frustrating.

    But all of my weights are up considerably since I've started.  I've been aiming for the 5-lbs-per-week rule (increase the weight of everything by 5 lbs at the start of each week).  Having my two co-workers there to help me out and train with has also helped a ton.

    It's been so great seeing my deltoids, triceps, biceps, and trapezius pop out and even though I have chub still I actually have ab lines on the sides and just under my ribcage which is really weird to see.

    I even got hit on at the gym today by some twenty-something undergrad and that made me feel pretty good.  She really liked my workout shirt.

  7. Lightfoot actually talked me into the keto diet as well.  I have stringently followed the diet (not one fucking carb over Thanksgiving weekend! ask @Odin) and I started some pretty heavy duty lifting with a friend and co-worker as well.  Like, the last upper body workout he and I did was a 2,500 calorie burn according to my heart monitor.

    Anyways, we just finished up the second week of that program and, though it's mostly water weight, I'm already down 14 lbs,  I usually weigh myself on Mondays and tend to have my "wooshes" over the weekend so we'll see where I'm at tomorrow.

    My lifting program has escalated to six days a week though, thankfully, somewhat shorter workouts (push, pull, legs, push, pull, legs, rest) of around six top eight exercises.

    This goes for four weeks and then we move on to the 5x5 strong lifts for probably around five months or so and then on to mad cow.
