Cool. I'll post a longer message soon, to let everyone know what's going on with this collab. That way we can co-ordinate somewhat.

I've been meaning to post something, but writing fight choreography is not my forte and I've honestly never been great at it =P

I'm done browbeating. The mall scene will be up in a couple of days, then the return to Newport Beach. After that, let's reconsider where we want to go with this. Kiskaloo says he's prepared to add post to this thread, but I don't know what form that may take. More on that later, hopefully.

Personally I think we should charge ahead with the plan we came up with on the pad. Your thoughts on our next course of action, John?

also GARGH I put my MicroSD card into my tablet the wrong way and I think pulling it out broke it, as it can't read anymore. Chunks of my RB writing are gone!

Been there. On the positive side, reconstructing it will be easier than writing it the first time, and while you're doing it, a new insight or refinement may come to you that leaves you happier with the final result.

Working on RB as well. Presently taking shape under the keyboard: Kris, Angel and Estelle are just going into the mall, and the girls are already arguing about which stores to hit. A surveillance team sent by Mord is waiting for their return at the house. Back at headquarters, Stefan is trying to tutor Tiffany, and, conscientious soul that he is, having a hard time asserting his authority over a cyborg who expects her handler to emphasize his lessons with his fists.

So I have some initial questions should anyone have some answers. Smile


Section 1’s location is given as “Washington D.C.”. Are they in the FEMA Building with Section 2, or in another location (like the Nebraska Avenue Complex where much of DHS is currently located until they move to St. Elizabeths Hospital)?


James West carries the title of Chief of Staff. Where does he fall in the Chain of Command? Is he like Lorenzo in the SWA or is there some Undersecretary who holds that role in the Rehabilitation Branch who West is their CoS?


Dominica Reyes - Is it Miss Reyes or Missus?


Marcus Moretti - He seems to be the head of the Chicago Branch Office? Also, in GSG:A he served as the liaison to the SWA. Does he still also have this role, or is that now handled by Dominica?

Clearly you've been doing your research for your entry into our little offshoot collab, Kisk. You've already dug deeper than I've had occasion to, since my main RB characters interact only tangentially with the Branch proper, and my secondaries are techies in a support role. John_234 brought this concept with him to the forum; I'd guess he's the go-to guy for answers. If you can't wait for an answer, I suggest you wing it.

I have a scene in Washington D.C. where Michele is introduced to West and Reyes as it's been indicated that West handles all personnel hiring and firing so I imagine he'd want to meet Michele in person - especially since Michele's appointment carries influence from at least the Undersecretary level, if not the Secretary of DHS level. However, I've figured out how to work it into the narrative without needing to write the scene in DC so I can be vague.

Since Moretti is formerly with the SWA (even if he was after Michele's time), West decides to make him the Branch Contact for Michele rather than the usual "closest branch office" (in this case, Oakland, CA and Denton, TX).

My original chapter one was in Rome, but I want to have Kumari learn about Kara and Claes so Michele goes back to Italy with her for a short period to set his things in order before starting his mission with Kumari in Mexico and Central / South America (where they will be working to disrupt the cocaine trade that is flooding into Italy.

That sounds excellent. Will there be any cross-plotting with existing threads? From my experience, it's rather hard to 'share a pad' with another writer if they don't check in and contribute regularly, and the RB group is kind of scattered right now.

Hello~! Hopefully I can offer answers in John's stead. :3

From what I percieve, James West is the overseer of all Rehabilitation Branch Sections (in a purely administrative/staffing fashion), with Dominica Reyes assisting on that front in terms of organising operations. I think Lorenzo would be more comparable to Marcus Moretti, though if memory serves me right the operations Section for RB are led by several individuals, and isn't quite as centralised as the SWA's divisions.


The original concept for Rehabilitation Branch had stations mostly inside FEMA buildings iirc, sort of like one of those clichéd basements-under-basements =P I don't know if that's what John still had in mind, but I'd roll with that! At the very least, RB exists under FEMA as a formality, administration-wise - but apart from Section 1, every other Section has stations in a variety of places.

Of course, this is all based off my understanding, so you might want to ping John as well if you like~

Thanks, Project J.

My concept story deals with The Cartel Arc, but skimming the story posts to date (I'll do a full re-read), I don't see a specific mention of cartels other than the Russians are working with Los Zetas, whose area of operations is along the Gulf of Mexico and the border with southern Texas.

Is there any specific cartel the RB are engaged against, or is it being kept deliberately nebulous?

The Sinaloa Cartel seems to be the most powerful so they strike me as a logical choice for one of the cartels seeking cyborg technology (it sounds like multiple cartels are in a joint-effort to acquire this technology, though if they were working against each other, that could make for some interesting events).

Yeah from what I've gathered, RB doesn't have a specific cartel pinned down as of yet. The truth is probably that yes, there are multiple cartels involved, some of which are actually working towards a common goal (whether wittingly or not, actually) though infighting is inevitable since we're not talking about a disciplined mob here =P

Writing the first mall visit by Angel and Kris now. If Red Wolf is done with this collab and no longer wants to write his 'kidnap' story, I have an alternate storyline to salvage the plot. J, John?

The 'kidnapping' story arc has been put on the shelf, but in such a way that we can return to it easily if Red's interest rekindles. Not expecting it, frankly, but it was too good an idea to simply chuck.
