Piloted Frames

Postby Trokodile » Sat Sep 28, 2019 11:27 am

First off, if this is not the correct place to put this, I apologize because I wasn't quite sure.
But here's the question. What's the term for a specific modification of a Frame or vehicle that has a named pilot? I believe that would be an Ace, or is that IO only? I have seven frames designed that I want to give a pilot, but need the term first. Thanks!
As of August 30, 2019, I have 13 frames photographed that I haven't put here yet. They, as well as all my photographs, can be found at https://drive.google.com/drive/folders/1f1dlHOhWX4s6nfTW1FWh4Uqhoc6usAIG

There's no differentiation for that within the game rules for RA. This is mostly because all frames are piloted—autonomous/AI robots are the exception and not the norm. Whether the frame is owned by or exclusively piloted by a single person or not would change from one situation to another, and isn't relevant to the game rules.

So call them whatever you'd like for however you play.

Yeah there's not an established slang word for it or anything, so it really depends on whatever background fluff you're constructing to explain why these people are important enough to be "named" pilots (as opposed to everyone else in a can). Are they Aces, Commanders, Notable Criminals? What might they or their culture use to single them out? Are they even special or are you just naming your grunts?
