Turn 12: The Shuttles

The US Colonial Marines’ ordinance was remarkably effective and resilient. Nevertheless, under 50 atmospheres of water pressure, the pulse rifles were reduced to useless weight. At least with the pressurization, any remaining infected people were certainly dead. The question now was the shuttles tha...

Turn 11: Extreme Pressurization

The wild-eyed man on the catwalk waved the hand cannon again almost as if he was drunk. "You did this to us didn't you?! This is all a government conspiracy. We are just guinea pigs to you mother fuckers!" The man was clearly effected by exposure to the bioweapon and going mad with paranoia. We wave...

Re: Turn 10: Discovery

(OOC): I’m sorry guys I haven’t had time lately. Saturday was my birthday and I’ve been moving into a new place. I’m going on a trip this weekend for a baseball game. I’ll try to squeeze a post in or maybe Morse will do one for me. Thanks for patience)

Turn 10: Discovery

Lance Corporal Paulson inserted the captain’s ID card into the terminal. It brought up several options and he selected “shipping manifest.” It took a few minutes to find the crates that were stored in the location mentioned by the survivor. He clicked through the contents of a few crates before find...

Re: Turn 9: 2nd/3rd Squads

She then walked over to Sykes and said; "Okay SGT Major....what's the plan?" Sykes regulated his breathing through his nose and began to regain control of himself. It wasn't that bad, just a tight suit but he would be fine. "Let's move out. I don't wanna split up any further. Looks like we have eig...

Re: Turn 9: 1st Squad

The tanks on the port side of the room began to hum loudly as if someone just turned the pumps on. Sykes replied to Morse through the radio: "Keep looking for stairs; we need to link up. We found no stairs aft, going to try forward. Fusion reactor has a coolant leak but I think we bought some time. ...

Re: Turn 9: 2nd/3rd Squads

As Grisham keyed the terminal, he found a complex interface with dozens of keys. He clicked a large button in the corner that read "SIMPLE SCREEN" and the numerous small buttons became half a dozen large buttons. He clicked the key that read "ENGAGE RESERVE COOLANT SYSTEM." The screen border changed...

Re: Turn 9: 1st Squad

Sykes' voice came through the radios, sounding a bit more stressed than usual.
“Morse, I copy you. Lance Corporal Davros, cut that bullshit and speak like a professional Marine, you understand me?”

Re: Turn 9: 2nd/3rd Squads

The Marines subdued and disarmed Carlson without any injury. Doc’s sedative took effect almost at once and the crazed Marine began to doze peacefully. (Success all round) Sergeant Major Sykes’ brows furrowed with stress. The suit was becoming very uncomfortable and he could understand poor Carlson’s...

Re: Turn 9: 1st Squad

The young woman looked distressed as if struggling to comprehend everything that was asked of her. “I don’t know, what was I doing when I came to my senses? I was standing by my door with a chair leg ready to… hit anyone who came in… I’m sorry. You think it’s like, an airborne disease? I don’t know ...

Turn 9: 2nd/3rd Squads

Private Carlson’s breath began to normalize as Doc spoke to him. He answered the questions with increasing calm. Lighting one of the cigarettes from his squad leader, he inhaled deeply several times and exhaled the smoke into the air. “I’m okay now, I’m sorry.” He crushed the cigarette out and got t...

Turn 9: 1st Squad

As Morse began his authoritative countdown, the man in front of the metal tanks looked a little stunned and the SMG lowered halfway to the floor. As the Marines looked on, they realized what the tanks were. They were reactor coolant tanks, and the neon green liquid was coolant. (Awareness check: all...

Turn 8: 2nd/3rd Squads

Doc melted through the locks and slid the broken door open. They all felt and heard a faint humming as they entered the room. Three long metal cylinders seemed to be the source of this energy. The squads fanned out to look for any more threats, but it seemed safe for now. Each of the cylinders was s...

Turn 8: 1st Squad

Morse, Paulson, and McKenna led the way aft through an open doorway. Davros was trailing at the back with his survivor. The room they entered was dark and had a higher ceiling then the rest of the deck. Their flashlights illuminated walls and ceiling of unpainted metal. A strange clanging noise was ...
