Re: Mission 3 Turn 8: Reunion

There was a point that Sam made. The droids out front, while having the means to put up a fight, had hardly put up one at all. Regardless of whether or not they were specifically programmed for advanced combat, the fact that they opted to attempt to fire and did not was very odd. To make matters mor...

Re: Mission 3 Turn 7: Fireteam Alpha

The door slammed shut, separating the the unit. Not ideal, but not a deal breaker. It did not sound like mulching or grinding or flames or screaming beyond, so that was a good sign. They had likely entered into a trap, but that was not to say that they were dead. Marines were dangerous animals to tr...

Re: Mission 3 Turn 6: Spotted

The movement of the synthetic caught Morse's eye. A simple look allowed him to measure that the droid was moving towards the weapon that rested on the ground that appeared to have been carried by its now shut down companion. The advance towards the weapon was steady, measured, and calculated. This w...

Re: Mission 3 Turn 6: Spotted

A firefight had begun. Combat once more. But this time against a more familiar enemy. This was something the Marines were actually prepared and trained for. THis was something that Morse was all too familiar with... if not eager to step into. Fighting against giant lizards and swamp ambushes were mi...

Re: Mission 3 Turn 5: Visual

There was movement in at the structure. Less then ideal, as they had hoped for a peaceful occupation. While the uninitiated my see others on the world as a sign of salvation, the prospect of being saved, or at least linking up with people of the same species or culture as they were. Morse and the ma...

Re: Mission 3 Turn 3: Showdown

The beast was dead. That was a welcome surprise. In a way Morse had thought it may rip them to pieces before they could rally their defense. Had it gotten jaws or claws on the APC it could very well have flipped it over. Fortunately it had only done its initial obvious damage. There was now the scen...

Re: Mission 3 Turn 2: Megafauna

The predatory creature that emerged was like nothing Morse had ever seen before. He had witnessed the Xenomorph Queens in action, they too were large lumbering monsters. But the Xenomorphs were thin, insect like, with a hard outer shell for skin, but not like this. This beast was muscular and more m...

Re: Mission 3 Turn 1: Stampede

The days that followed the excursion out were a tentative easing. Though they were still stranded it was giving the impression that they may be alright. The food stocks left something to be desired but they would have enough time now to figure out what was edible near them and what was not. Hopefull...

Re: Mission 2 Turn 5: Disaster

Nodding to no one as he got a response back, Morse listened to the new directive. It was about what he was going to guess. He was surprised that they had identified as many vehicles intact as they seemed to have, but getting them functioning was a different story. In a way he was amused by the buggy...

Re: Mission 2 Turn 5: Disaster

The news was a pleasant assistant in the difficult day that the band on the ground was already having. They now would simply need to clear out the place and ensure it was transported safely. A number one issue was that some creatures seemed to be able to smell their way into the food, which was not ...

Re: Mission 2 Turn 5: Disaster

The alien creature screeched and snarled as it raced across the landscape in their perimeter, a terrifying charge of some alpha monster that would strike fear in the heart of all on that world... yet it was dead. This was humanity, and its relentless march across the galaxy. Nothing stood a chance a...

Re: Mission 2 Turn 4: The Supply Locker

Adrenaline worked in a strange way in Morse. After ten waking years of being in combat situations, Morse did not feel panic and dread the same as he had in his younger years. It now manifested with accelerated heart beats, but a gritted toothed under bite overtook his features as he gazed on his ene...

Re: Mission 2 Turn 4: The Supply Locker

It was no unexpected that animals were already taking a look around the crash site. The primitive beasts couldn't help themselves was a touch of Earth's machinery laid itself upon their worlds. The most advanced and plentiful thing that could possibly happen, that in their brainless eyes was some so...

Re: Mission 2 Turn 4: The Supply Locker

The mighty wreck was an impressive site to the uninitiated... but Morse had seen too many. It was like a fiery outpost that had been dropped in the middle of the jungle from his eyes, but that was the same as all the others. It was intact for the most part and not sprayed metal chunks over three hun...

Re: Mission 2 Turn 3: The March

A promotion to staff sergeant was not necessarily what Morse had been expecting when they'd crash landed... he was more in the category of assuming death may have been imminent. Instead he had additional authority... and likely no additional pay when they reviewed his record. He highly doubted that ...
