Re: Turn 3 New Arrivals - Squad 3,4 - Personell Terminal

Danny Sykes had to bite his tongue as McKenna gave orders to his squad. He had opened his mouth to say something like "I'm going first, follow me," but he swallowed the thought. McKenna was in charge of his squad, Sykes was supposed to focus on the big picture. Besides, there would likely be plenty ...

Re: Turn 3 New Arrivals - Squad 1,2 - Freight Terminal

Sergeant Major Sykes' subdued voice came through the radio:

Code: Select all

"This is Sierra One Six.  Sniper team and missile team deployed.  One squad advancing to scale the roof.  Confirm targets before firing."

Re: Turn 3 New Arrivals - Squad 3,4 - Personell Terminal

Sergeant Major Sykes blinked against the rain in his eyes as he knelt behind an abandoned logging machine. He peered around it at the structure ahead. The lights were out, and he thought it might be abandoned. That would be really nice since he didn’t want to see any of his team die today. The conce...

Re: Turn 2: First Assembly at 0800

Sergeant Major Sykes stood beside Lieutenant Harper at parade rest. He listened and watched attentively, although he had heard some of this already. The Marine Corps usually restricted how much information was given to the crew before they shipped out. 'Loose lips sink ships' as the saying went. If ...

Re: Turn 1: Freezing Floors

"Sergeant Major, when isn't it a glorious day?" Gaston's voice was a rich baritone and belied his Southern Heritage. <Tag Sykes> "I don't know, I never seen one!" he replied enthusiastically. After shouting some more or less encouraging adages about the Marine Corps, Danny Sykes made his way to bre...

Re: Turn 1: Freezing Floors

Sergeant Major Danny Sykes suddenly felt the cold and miserable bite of reality. Torn from his dreams, he opened his eyes and saw a painfully bright light overhead. Realizing where he was, he grabbed the frozen cigar from his pocket and shoved it into his mouth. He sat up and peered around at the ot...

Re: Turn 20: Rewards

Danny Sykes wolfed down the delicious food on the plates before him. He paused from time to time and grinned at the people around him. Even after all these years as a gruff NCO, he still had that glowing and ingenuous smile, not to mention the personal magnetism. Currently, he was just trying to soa...

Re: Signiture images

Had to re-upload a bunch of the images on a better image hosting site... They kept looking distorted. If you see distorted medals, please report it here so I can fix it. Please tell me which signature is showing distorted medals and which ones if possible. I am hoping I don't have to redo them all, ...

Re: Character skills

I agree 100% with everything that Perez said. I want to do it but it's not my strong suit so I haven't done it yet. I think if we do it together we can come up with a simplified system that still rewards players for time of service. The narrative is the thing that I care about. I roll the dice to b...

U.S.S. Chimera

Since we doubled the size of our unit, we will need a larger ship. Say goodbye to the U.S.S. Heimlich, and hello to the U.S.S. Chimera. She is a Crusader-Class Super-Stealth Long Range Assault Troop Transport, or CCSSLRATT for short ;D

Turn 20: Rewards

Morse and Barayev threw the facehugger, which skidded along the metal deck. Private Henniger took careful aim and blasted it away, with Morse’s pistol rounds peppering the point of impact. The Marines fired into the hordes of aliens that drew in around them as they fell back to the now landed dropsh...
