ILR command probably liked your brother quite a lot, especially int the early part of the political destabilization aspects of the campaign.

The story I am sharing is from a little later when hostility's where open, the dirty tricks where not paying off as well in the strategic sense,  and the mental cost of the conflict was starting to affect everybody. some got harder and more sadistic, some found ways to ease the pain.

Natero's battle field performance across his company's frontage was exemplary. And they held much longer than command expected (especially given his refusal of certain opportunity's)  The EDF certainly does not consider him a hero but he is also not a war criminal. ( think Honorable bad guy doing a job, more than evil sadist enjoying his work, and you will peg the character of Natero quite well.) 

On a side note My own writing tends to recoil from true "evil" in characters.

Yeah My brother had a real dark streak and he read deeper into the evil aspect of the rabbits in the comics than I did.

Plus he had a bit of a rivalry with Derek. I think he just wanted to get his goat (No goats were harmed in this event that I know of.)

And I kinda wanted to take Derek down a few pegs. He was a wee bit arrogant after boot.

Sooo I let Scott do the dirty deeds (done with sheep.)

I've been reading the comics again. I missed ALOT. I'm thinking I wasn't dark enough and Scott had the gist of it.

The net is partly behind the anarchist terrorists. (!!?!?)

The ILR is MUCH worse than I'd thot. Very much like Scott played them.

And now my experience in "real" life makes me a bit more cynical. So I'll try to write up the story as a bunch of "lesser evil" choices and see where it goes.

As a younger person/player I was a half ass'd good guy. The character I wanted to play was a home guard who was part of his planets EDF liaison and got dragged along to the Derzon misadventure.

He/I was/am a constitutionalist by nature with out much greed and too much sympathy.

20 odd years on I'm mostly the same but see the evils of the "free" market crapitalist scum that the ILR/U.S. are...

I see how the ConFed/EDF are the better route but I also see how they've become corrupt.

I wonder if they'll show the slow decline that the ConFed/EDF took after Derzon that had to have started during the first war.

Wonder if that'll have any effect in the tactical level?

So I/my character want/s to go back to the farm...back to my cabin all out in the woods..

(Did it really say: "Back to the howling old owl in the woods"...interesting...Yeah I have a bad habit of thinking in song lyrics and I'm trying to become a better punster...)

I wonder if they'll take individual morale/planetary loyalty into account?

...

Yeah there's GOTTA be a new RPG for Albedo...

I wanna play both!
