Ok, I'm sold on this idea; this is the role I want: the commander. Not to tell be what to do, but to be the one to make it all come together. I can see myself in an Orion coordinating a 'mech company on a raid.
That's usually what I play in games. LOTRO: Captain. Tabletop D&D: Cleric. Super RPG/CoH MMO: A tank or Patriotic Leader/Tank/Brick. Traveller RPg: Noble/Space Marine Officer. Star Wars RPg: Soldier/Consular Jedi. SWTOR breaks the mold: Sith Juggernaunt (although that IS a tank!).
So...how do you see yourself serving the Eagle?
