A redshirt is one of the basic crew members in the original Star Trek series. In Aridor Slave Rescue, every player starts with a redshirt and can use this character to win other characters. Redshirt is a very low-scoring character in all three attributes.
The term is also used as a verb. To redshirt someone in the Aridor game is to reduce them to only having a redshirt by stealing (or otherwise removing) all their other slaves. Some players redshirt other players who annoy them, and the term is also used for other situations (e.g. where slaves are taken so they can be retaken to make money, and where someone loses all their slaves through attrition over time) where someone is left with only a redshirt.
Redshirt is not too bad a character, and has a good chance of beating Mariah or Goodnight in a fight.
Enigma tried to redshirt me for making fun of him when he was offline, but instead, I nearly redshirted him.
If you're offline for a few days, don't be surprised to find yourself redshirted when you get back to Aridor.
Mis-spelling of Gilina Renaez, the name of a guest-star character on Farscape played by Alyssa-Jane Cook. The mis-spelling crops up on the Aridor Slave Rescue game, where Chellina is one of the most highly sought-after characters.
I put this up after spending hours a while back, searching for information on or pictures of Chellina, and never getting any hits on anywhere except Aridor... Well, anyone else doing the same will hit this page too, and can go look for Gilina instead.
On Aridor, to BG is to place bodyguards on an indenture so s/he can't be captured by other players by any means except Rumble. Some players BG their namesakes or low-ranking but favourite characters. But BGing credit chicks or other popular characters is a recipe for trouble.
The newbie BGed the Halliwells but got biobombed and rumbled within half an hour.
Some prat decided to BG my favourite character so I rumbled the fucker.
On the Aridor Slave Rescue game, to un-BG a character is the opposite of to BG a character. It means, getting rid of the bodyguards assigned to a character, so they can be captured by ordinary means. It is used to refer both to situations where a player deliberately gets rid of the bodyguards on their own character (by losing a contest for instance), and where a player rumbles or biobombs another in order to get rid of BGs.
Enigma wanted the Emperor off me so he biobombed me repeatedly to un-BG the character and then stole him.
It's quite easy to un-BG the credit chicks because all you need to do is pick a contest with a strong character to lose them.
In the Aridor slave rescue game, credit chicks are the handful of very attractive but relatively weak and stupid women characters who are easy to win and who also make a lot of money (credits) for the characters who win them if assigned to a job requiring attractiveness. The current top 10 are nearly all credit chicks. In routine play, credit chicks are often "swapped", i.e. players quickly steal them from one another to make lots of money quickly.
The main credit chicks are Mariah Carey, the four Halliwells (Prue, Piper, Phoebe and Paige), Chellina (Gilina) off Farscape, Goodnight (from one of the Bond films) and one or two others - although these top ranking characters are not always the highest-earning or the easiest to get.
Some players also mention "credit dudes" - male characters with similar earning power - but the highest-scoring men are high-ranking in all three attributes and therefore very hard to win, so aren;t swapped much.
If someone steals Jean Grey from Enigma, he BGs the credit chicks and gifts them to other people.
I swapped credit chicks with Yuriko for half an hour to get my credit score up.
In Aridor Slave Rescue, to biobomb is to send an indenture infected with a venereal disease as a "gift" to another player. There are four types of biobomb which have different effects (reducing credits, fatiguing a character, getting rid of BGs, and getting a character to defect). Biobombing another player is usually considered hostile.
Pierre likes to biobomb people to release their slaves into the general pool, but one of these days, he's gonna do it to someone with a short fuse and get himself redshirted.
