No, that old gig? We're gonna be much more professional than that.
It's actually reference to something that will happen this arc, provided enough widget-loving risk-takers from the Outsiders are there to help make it happen
This is the public call to arms - if you have a lawfully-dubious character that likes widgets, joyrides, trains, heists, train heists, and perhaps most importantly, fun, then I'd recommend getting them started at or near the Outsiders, because some foolhardy thief might just propose the biggest score of their lives.
Expect some movement on the planning side for that soon™
So if you want to take part, getting a character to the Outsiders within the not-too-distant future is your fastest ticket to the wildest Iron Mahi ride that they'll ever see.
It will certainly not be easily, and success is by no means guaranteed, but the plan is that it will at the very least be legendary. What more could a merc want?
It only took *checks watch* almost six months (:yeshoney:), but we're finally on the cusp of launching Mata Nui's greatest caper: robbing a train to steal the first cars ever. If you want to join in - yes, that means you - please get in touch with me within a week.
Wait, what? Yup. Train heist + grand theft auto. On Mata Nui. You heard me right. Our characters will be legends, either through infamy of their success or the wild story of how it all went hilariously wrong.
How are we going to pull this off? Well, Quoribay just elaborated a basic outline of a plan in a post in Ko-Wahi, but as with any good heist movie, that's not the entire plan, and we won't spend the entire runtime showing the characters planning the nitty gritty of the plan before running through it all. There are always those twists and turns that were planned ahead that instead, we get the joy of learning as the characters do them, with maybe even some flashbacks to that IC planning session. To emulate this and prevent a deadlock of posting, what we're doing is doing a little bit of OOC planning that summarizes the IC planning, and then immediately dropping our characters in media res as the heist (or any requisite prep, depending on the plan) begins. Pretty slick, eh?
How do I get involved? I've left it open ended so anyone can still join in if they want to by saying that my thief Matoran Quoribay recruited them earlier on his way to Obsidian Outpost. Or hey, maybe they came to join the Outsiders at the perfect time, that's an option too. Just give me a heads up on the character you're planning to bring and, barring any major inconsistencies, you'll be clear to just show up and join in on the fun.
If I don't hear from anyone within a week we'll keeping going with the characters we have on the heist crew so far.
