Blowout soon fellow StalkerWell the crowner says to split it up. And I'm all for it and think the story trope needs the old name. Don't think anyone is doing anything though.
Oh really, when?
YKTTW-mobile or should we just sandbox and drop the examples there? what will it be called though? On Site Procurement is good for the story one. Scavenging Mechanic for the game trope?
Anime-tedHeh...I just now realized that you asked two questions there. I was agreeing with the second sentence; I think a sandbox should be sufficient for the work.

Besides some minor misspellings and grammatical errors I don't see much wrong with it. Other than needs moar examples! Question regarding the misspellings... is anyone here besides me like to compile in a word processor with spell check, etc. Before transferring it to the wiki?

So you're saying you don't want me to proofread?...
Repair, Don't Respond...
I know but I wasn't sure if you meant that you wanted me to leave the original mistakes in there... I was just going to fix them and not mention it but... Then you said what you said.
We Could Have Avoided All This. And you could have already fixed it without all this pointless talk. I apologize for sounding rude, but had it went that way, my response would have been just "thanks".

I edited it further. Of the two cases discussed here, the game mechanism and the plot device, the one written up is the less interesting. Might as well ship this one off and move on to drafting the good stuff.
By "outside of games" do you mean in the real world? I still find both the mechanic and the tactic for plausible deniability, very much feasible.
you know you're right, outside of metal gear and some other video games I don't (off the top of my head) recall where it pops up. Perhaps because of the tenancy of most Spy Flicks and such to give the agent every gadget you need for the sake of equipment porn.
The system doesn't know you right now, so no post button for you.
You need to Get Known to get one of those.
