|The Barrett XM109|
Sunday, June 29, 2014
Most people would think that the M107A1 SASR (Special Applications Scoped Rifle), more commonly known as the Barrett M82, is the end all of large caliber rifles. However, they would be wrong in that it may be the best known, but is not the latest or most powerful. I present this piece of hardware:

If you have played a shooter in the last several years in the modern setting, you've probably heard of the American AC-130 Gunship, and the power it can bring to bear. Here I wanted to put into Savage World's terms as an asset the players can call in on missions, in a military type setting. It will allow the players to have a tense moment and then proactively deal with threats that are overwhelming or they aren't equipped to handle at the time.

A fact about me is that I have played "combat sports" since I was 10 isn't something I talk about very often. I started playing paintball in the 6th grade and airsoft in 10th. I had to lay off in college and for a couple years after that, but I kept immersed in it. Today I received my order for my first gas blowback rifle, I won't go over the nitty-gritty technical details of weapon (they count as firearms legally in some places I think, and you should be responsible with them even if they aren't in your area) types here. But I got a Mk18 CQBR styled one that is also marketed to law enforcement agencies for low cost training (as 5.56x45mm ammunition is expensive). This isn't my first airsoft gun, I owned an MP5 Navy, AKS, and still own an electric M16, and gas 1911A1. So why do I spend my hard earned money on this stuff?

Yes, I am playing a female character. Not only that, but we're all playing female characters in this campaign. I've been playing RPGs for 10 years now, and its a first, it was worth a try and I think I have built a character that is different from all the rest I have ever played. But back to the character in our campaign. It's a run through of The Elder Scrolls IV: Oblivion, and things almost immediately went differently than the game.

So it has been a good three months since I started this, I've gotten attention beyond what I thought I would have ever been exposed to. It hasn't been much but it has been much, truth be told, but its something. I went to the Pinnacle Entertainment's forums (Savage Worlds) and put up a could .pdf I made (the first being my gear guide and the other being the Space Marines). However, more recently things have slowed down, post frequency-wise, with March and April having 10 a piece and May having only 4. Largely it is due to a combination of work taking up so much more time these days and working on updating projects like Savage Space Marines and turning the Call of Duty: Modern Warfare series into a plot point campaign (which is turning out to be a hefty one). So I haven't forgotten about this if I have any unknowing followers, I'm just trying to wrangle life down and beat it into submission again. I have a few shorter posts coming up, a Character Story is probably next.
