SAMs, don't leave home without them.
Will a SAM lock onto a Biological?

And this is why we have rockets that detonate on impact. Point and shoot, no need to worry about guidance systems.

As for ones that do have guidance, radar is iffy, don't know what the bug's crossection would look like. However, laser designated targeting systems work fine on bugs, and heat-seakers may work. And then there's always the Heimdall. A rigged missile.

Nothing better than kicking things off by the team picking up an adorable little baby that goos ... then pops its jaws as a pair of mandables slides out and snaps in the air.

I should probably finish that Anne Penchyk writeup, at least for internal consumption.

What bugs me aboutt he book is the "Bubbling to the Surface"-chapter: its introduction is written by Snopes, but the single theories aren't written with his voice all the time - should it have been that other posters like Plan 9 should have written them, but it just got mixed up?

What are HEADS? Mentioned in the DeeCee-chapter, but no explanation given (it's a common of pattern of James Meiers to use acronyms wihtout explaining them....).

I kind of wish Match had survived that bit of fiction.  I liked the silly bastard, the more I wrote of him.

I always thought:

[spoiler]She was a Mantis Spirit post-Super Tuesday/Shadows of the Underworld, and that the Empowerment Coalition was just a posh front for such things, but I've never been able to find anything to that effect in Loose Alliances or whatever.  Did I just imagine the whole thing?[/spoiler]

She's still an ork in Shadows of the Underworld. Anyway, that's why she needed the writeup. There are questions about what the EC is doing, and what role the mantids play into it.

In my previous home campaign, I used them as a network of politically-powerful women willingly possessed by Mantis Spirits.  One of the PCs had taken Amnesia, so I gave him the full Manchurian Candidate treatment.  His mother was a UCAS Senator (based on Eleanor Prentis Shaw from the film, and Hillary Rodham Clinton), another member was a major Denver fixer, etc. etc.
