Re: Turn 9: 1st Squad

Morse searched the headless corpse before him thinking on the waste that it was. It did not throw him off entirely, but more contemplated the uselessness that so many lives had. They lived for a moment in time and then they were expended for next to no reason. It was hard to wrap one's head around, ...

Re: Turn 9: 1st Squad

Davros seemed to be taking over the handling of the girl. This did not bother Morse very much. He was trying to handle the tactical situation that they were in, and getting information from the girl was not going to be among Morse's fortes. The fact was that most people struggled to understand Morse...

"Sykes I got one hostile down. Civilian with a submachine gun. Took a shot at us n' didn't survive, over."

Re: Turn 9: 1st Squad

The man had turned to fire and made the biggest and last mistake of his life. Morse had not even gotten his finger on his trigger when Davros had fired into him and killed him. Morse had to hesitate and wait for the opportunity to have a cleaner shot that wouldn't further rupture the already damaged...

Re: Turn 8: 1st Squad

Morse was alerted when they found the body. The bullets that riddled him were a give away of the serious struggle that had occurred on the vessel prior to their arrival. But without any further evidence of the situation, it was just leaving Morse feeling a bit uneasy. There was no real way to what h...

Re: Turn 7: Linking Up

There was a kid, a girl, and a drop, 40 feet. This was a fresh puzzle that Morse was quickly losing patience for. Their scans anticipated that there would be some level of disconnect, but not the kind that resulted in fractured bones or lines of fire that did not overlap in the slightest. It could b...

"Do you need 1st to move in to assist?" Morse called over the radio.

Re: Turn 6 - 1st Squad

As the marines of 1st Squad disembarked, Morse was immediately alerted to the listing ship. In space they could have artificial gravity work all day, but down on the seabed where there was actual gravity was causing a sort of... slanted situation. That was not a good in the long run in terms of gene...

Re: Turn 5: The Seabed

In a way Morse found the situation quite humorous. He was being allowed to sit and do basically nothing while others did cripplingly dangerous work. It was a nice switch, and he was not exactly going to get up and try to do anything to change that. He had no real interest in going on recon that deep...

Re: Turn 4: Suit Up

The notation of half the platoon being dangled from a sub and the other half being inside the sub was a strange point. Morse thought of it as basically being like a zero grav training exercise, which were common in training. Very seldom were they put together in practice in real life. Morse sized up...

An Ancient in Alexandria

Planet: Alexandria Location: Pyrio City Date: March 9th, 2237 Morse stared at himself in a mirror behind the dimly lit bar. Though not a real mirror, of glass and silver, it was some sort of holographic reflector that was set up behind a series of pictures of local sights and imitations of taxidermy...

Re: Turn 3: The Tour

An accident. They were down personnel all because of an accident. This was how regulations to wear helmets all the time came into play. Morse could already smell the datapads spewing new regulations that they would have to find a way to enforce. Two hands on a railing and a new training even to ensu...

Re: Turn 2: The Nehalennia

Morse nodded in agreement at Sam. He knew his destiny was to die miserable and no different than some other warrior or rake in history, with no true worthy accomplishment to show for it other than a million stories to be told to people that couldn't understand then, much less care. Sam was the same ...

Re: Turn 2: The Nehalennia

As they started moving down, Morse had acknowledged Sam's nod. He knew how far they had come from when they were both starting off within months of bootcamp. They'd travelled the universe and somehow they were the longest two consistently dropped Marines in their unit. There had been a handful that ...

Re: Turn 2: The Nehalennia

There was an irony to the Colonial Marines. Though the root of their title came from aquatic beginnings, they had next to no training in the water beyond being able to swim with a combat load. The combat skills translated well enough though into an underwater environment. Morse did not know if they ...
