Re: Mission 1 Turn 5: Wreckage

The fact that everyone survived was one of those unusual miracles, that had no real reason to it. While on one world a single bite from a creature that size would rend your flesh from bone and take a leg with it, some worlds had creatures that were adapted for a different form of killing. And the in...

Re: Mission 1 Turn 4: Amphibians

"What the fuck!..." Morse spat as he felt the ground slip beneath him. Everything was moving very quickly, as things often did on any mission they were set upon. There really were just two speeds. Waiting for madness to ensue... or the madness ensuing. This was not exactly a firefight so much as it...

Re: Mission 1 Turn 4: Amphibians

The sudden thrashing and struggle were what drew Morse's attention. He turned to look almost immediately as the twisting began to see Quinn under assault by some sort of lizard creature. Morse did not take stock of what it was to any great degree, only recognized that it was a sort of unintelligent ...

Re: Mission 1 Turn 2: Survival

The rebreathers fit on quickly. Morse knew well to get his on tight when instructed. He applied his in such as way that he'd inevitably have to loosen it. But it was better to have to loosen such a thing then tighten it, so for the meantime that was not going to bother him. If the atmospherics of th...

Re: Mission 1 Turn 1: Armageddon

The Marines were, in words, beat to hell. The reentry into the atmosphere had been severe and miserable. Crashing and bashing them both inside and out and there was no real way to tell what the organization still held for them as they regained mobility. Morse, while medic and squad leader, was prepa...

Re: Mission 1 Turn 1: Armageddon

Just as soon as Morse had his gear together, weapon loaded, and combat load applied the call came overhead to evacuate. Morse had spent every waking second throwing his gear together in a dismal groggy state, that was almost incoherent. But that was fine, when he'd come to grips with everything he w...

Re: Prologue: The U.S.S. Shiloh

The jump through space had been more miserable then usual. An awful lot of disturbances for what was a routine transit back to home port. Not an ideal situation. Waking up and doing cryo sleep rotations like multi day bay guard shift at boot camp. Not anyone's idea of fun. Added to that, space farin...

Re: CHAPTER 6 - All-In

The explosion amidst the cryotubes was controlled but efficient. It blasted heat and sound that obliterated any sign of the Xenos within. Though a satisfying crackle and crunch came about as they burned and broke, Morse knew well how fiercely outnumbered those creatures tended to leave a group of hu...

Re: CHAPTER 6 - All-In

The roar of the M56 Smartgun and the M41A Pulse Rifles were an impressive and intimidating sound. It rattled at the ear drums and the heat made ones skin stand on edge as every fiber of one's being could sense the horrible machinery at its killing work. There were few things in the galaxy that could...

Re: CHAPTER 5 - Heads Or Tails

Morse had moved up in support as ordered. Their advance was swift and steady. Though they lacked the numbers that one would have preferred to feel safe in moments such as that, he was ready for whatever would happen. Though in spite of all the training and experience, he couldn't help but feel that ...

Re: CHAPTER 5 - Heads Or Tails

Morse watched the rear. Though there was fighting to be done, the rear was still important. A single second could be the difference between the death of half the squad or the enemy attacking them. He would adjust fire if he had to but for the moment he knew that the others would be able to hand it. ...

Re: CHAPTER 5 - Heads Or Tails

As the area was secured Morse wasted no time in hurrying over to the Marine that was wounded. Of course his reaction would be that he was fine and that he could keep fighting without any real assistance, but Morse knew all too well about how that got people hurt. His own lack of caution had cost him...

Re: CHAPTER 5 - Heads Or Tails

Morse should have known better then to use a grenade. He was a good shot, he was not a good toss. Something about the coordination of the lob always eluded him especially in gear. Though the blast radius was wide it was never enough to compensate for how wide or short he would often throw the small ...

Re: CHAPTER 5 - Heads Or Tails

Their opposing force was presently small, a simple and easy take down would be in order if they executed their movement properly. But the size of a force meant nothing in the age of advanced machinery and synthetic soldiers. The human body was almost becoming an obsolete relic of the past, especiall...

Re: CHAPTER 4 - HARD TARGETS

"Stompin' time." Morse muttered as they approached the point to evacuate. The scope of their mission was calling for a wide array of weaponry, and it became a toss up of who would carry the SADAR. Ironically that was a piece of firepower Morse wanted nothing to do with. Though he had experience wit...
