RimWorld: A Friendly Raid

(This is another story from a recent session of RimWorld, a sort of a sci fi survival Dwarf Fortress lite. If that sentence didn’t mean anything to you, you’re in charge of three survivors of a spaceship crash on a remote hostile world, in a Firefly-esque setting, where lots of bad things happen while you try and survive against ever escalating threats. I recommend it.)

The blight was the beginning of the end. The entire potato crop wiped out. The locals shrugged and got right back to planting. These things happen. It could be much worse, there’s still food remaining, although meager.

That’s when the tribal raid appeared, just to the north of the settlement.

The Cast:

Van Loon, Commissar, Male (original crew)

Squirrel, Engineered Pilot, Male (original crew)

Fox, AI Researcher, Male (original crew)

Ignacio, Space Marine, Male (recruited pirate prisoner)

Shore’s Edge - a tiny settlement, in a temperate forest with a western coast

The first shell hit the prison shack, a patched up stone ruin on the shore along the water. Van Loon was tending to one of the two tribal prisoners, captured during one of their raids. The shell smashed through a wall, and then directly through one of the prisoners, killing him instantly.

Convair Kingfish

The CIA officially terminated Convair’s work on Project Gusto—the project code name for the Dragon Lady replacement—in February 1960. The company received a final payment for work related to the program in January 1963. However, only ten months later, Convair used the predecessor to Kingfish—FISH—as the starting point for design studies for an A-12 replacement.
