Re: Turn 12: One Last Push

On the orders of Morse, the Marines ate their iron rations and chugged from their canteens while on the move. The hallways were well lit now; the bright fluorescent lights were restored now that engineering was operational again. No threats appeared as they made their way to the bridge. The Marines ...

Turn 12: One Last Push

Paulson’s flamethrower sent a jet of fire at the xenomorph. It screamed in terror and pain as the flames washed over it. The screams died away as it burned to a crisp. Private Henniger opened fire on the other xenomorph with his pistol. The rounds roared out and tore its arm off with a spray of acid...

Re: Turn 11: Reunited

The crackling voice of Sergeant Major Sykes came through the radio. “Negative copy, did you say xenomorphs?” Once Morse had clarified, he heard a pause on the comms before Sykes replied. “Copy that, Staff Sergeant. The mercenaries must have brought them onboard.” Sykes could hardly imagine why. Mayb...

Re: Returning, hopefully for longer this time.

Okay so I’ll give you an extremely quick recap. The Easy Eights were deactivated. Some members of the Eights were moved to a new unit the “Devil Dawgs” which are special operations. About 7 years have passed in game since we last saw Colson. You can play that however you like, though. I’m not really...

Turn 11: Reunited

In the hallway, Morse blasted one alien with his pulse rifle. Lance Corporal Paulson fried the second alien with his reignited flame unit as it lunged forward. The hideous, high-pitched screams of the aliens split the air. First Squad moved forward to the intersection. They flashed their lights arou...

Colson didn’t die so you can bring him back if you like!

Re: Novelization of Campaigns

I purchased 40 copies of the second edition. 600+ edits complete and hopefully a better book. They cost me about $12.20 each and I intend to sell them for $15.00 to hopefully break even (More likely a small loss). As I mentioned elsewhere, I've been feeling very burned out. Once I am settled in my n...

Re: Role Call: Orion Campaign

Here is the discord link: https://discord.gg/7fduGZD Thank you both for your confidence. I don't want to let people down and I don't want to be constantly whining and seeking confirmation. I am going to recombine the two units as participation is dipping in both. Just have to figure out how to do th...

Re: Turn 10: First Contact (Marines)

Most of the Marines were too busy to notice, but at that moment the air vents started humming again as life support came online.

Turn 10: First Contact (Marines)

Henniger squeezed the trigger and his rounds punctuated the silence. The creature on the ceiling emitted a high-pitched scream and dropped to the floor of the tunnel. It tried to charge but the continued pulse rifle fire laid it low. Two more creatures appeared, running toward First Squad. One ran o...

Turn 10: Depressurization (Navy)

Knight ran the algorithms in his head in less than a heartbeat. Five-thousand civilians were on Gaia Station, and according to the latest intelligence, the majority were still alive. The four humans near him were a priority, but they had a chance to save themselves. The Navy crewmen were the only ch...

Re: Role Call: Orion Campaign

Sorry for the delay guys. I think I've been losing my motivation. Don't worry, I'm not quitting or stepping down!! I just want to give you all an idea of where I am at. I am in the process of moving, and mediacom was so kind as to come out to my house 20 days early and cut the internet wires. So it'...

Re: In universe questions

Writing from a female perspective is just a bit different…No true practical experience. Are you sure about that, Medic Guy? >:D As far as I remember, the rule was to keep it PG13. Anything more was supposed to be in PMs. Of course, that was the rule from 2007 but I think it still fits today. I’ve n...
