I voted to retreat, but that's also coming from the scout lance, currently out of battle and actually able to do so!

I'm voting to retreat, but I'm literally just going to go along with whatever decision is made by the person who picked me up. Unless we can somehow surrender and get what's left of our mechs back, retreat is the least worst option.

wrote:
Honors of war are a set of privileges that are granted to a defeated enemy. The honours symbolize the valor of the defeated enemy, and grew into a custom during the age of early warfare on Terra. The term has evolved many times in the centuries since its appearance on the stage of war. The term is most used by MechWarriors that wish to preserve the loss of their BattleMech, some of which are family heirlooms, from destruction. The victor will usually allow the MechWarrior, or the MechWarrior's unit, a chance to ransom the BattleMech back. The price of the ransom varies widely but can be anywhere from ten to twenty percent of the value of the 'Mech. The pilot is also ransomed, though the cost for his ransom is usaully several months salary. In rare cases, Full Honors of War is bestowed upon a defeated foe. Full Honors allows the defeated to take their equipment and their dead and injured from the field with no further hostilies. This is usually something that is reserved for the most honorable of foes. Conversely, Denial of Honors happens when the defeated consists of hated foes or unscrupulous foes and sees the defeated taken prisoner and their 'Mechs taken as salvage by the victors. Those so unlucky enter the ranks of the Dispossessed; a cruel fate in the thirty-first century.

I vote surrender... but since my BLR is currently a pile of smoking rubble, I'm kinda just along for the ride at this point... I'd prefer not to die in the retreat though, and they have both range/artillery and quick mechs/tanks to follow us. If we manage to retreat... its only because they let us do so.

I can't imagine the kind of ransom they'd be seeking given the destruction we left behind in several places!!

I think we probably can negotiate a free exit off the battlefield, where they can keep any salvange, etc. They don't lose any more mechs/people, we walk away. I think we already have our pilots picked up, so we shouldn't have to pay that sort of ransom.

We may have to agree to leave the planet, which could be a contract breach, but if we lose any/many more mechs and get wiped out, we aren't fulfilling any more contract missions anyway.
