Role Call: Quantum Herald Campaign

It's that time again. Are you lean?! Are you mean?! On the ready line, Marines, get some today! Get on the ready line! We are starting a new campaign in a week or two and I hope to see most of you returning. Post a reply here if you intend to play.

Re: Final Turn: Relevations

It looked like the whole facility had turned into a bloodbath. Sykes was not eager to allow the same thing to happen to his men and women. "Ready, squads! First Squad, cover the left hallway. Second Squad, move up to that bulkhead and watch the doors. Third Squad, move ten meters that way and cover ...

Re: Drop outs and slow down

Yes, of course. I appreciate all players who take the time to participate. I hope nobody saw this as a criticism.

Drop outs and slow down

Hi gang, I've noticed a lot of drop outs and game slow down. Seems like a central core of players are still going strong. I, myself, have been posting less frequently and with less vigor. In my case, I blame almost unbroken overtime going back to September. Come January 1st, all that should be in th...

Re: Turn 10: Welcome to Frankenstein's

Sergeant Major Sykes inspected the hideous creature sprawled out on the ground. He had never seen it before, but he had seen enough similarly hideous things to not feel much discomfort at the sight. Besides, if it was laying there then it could definitely be killed and that was a plus. “Stay sharp, ...

Re: Turn 10: Welcome to Frankenstein's

The tunnel was somewhat tight and hard to squeeze through. The darkness was eerie and Danny couldn't pick out any specific sound. He would have to issue orders. "Second Squad, take point. Third Squad, move up behind them. First Squad, you're tail end Charlie. Move out, people." <Tag everyone> Sykes ...

Turn 9: Mistakes

The dim light obscured the Marines’ vision. Those at the front were aware that the leading target was not a threat. The short person was either a dwarf or a child and they directed their fire at the rear figures who appeared to be hostile. The mercenary on the left dropped from Henniger’s shot and t...

Re: Turn 8: The Approach

The bursts of fire from PFC. Henniger lit the night and punctuated the silence with their loud thunder. The left hand target tumbled to the ground and the other two figures froze in their tracks. It was clear now to the Marines in front that the leading target was indeed a child. "Jake!" almost scre...

Turn 8: The Approach

So far, the mission had gone fairly well. It seemed that the Marines had conveniently landed at a time when the two factions were already fighting each other. The distraction gave them plenty of cover and weakened their opponents. The spaceport had fallen to the Devil Dawgs and now they proceeded no...

Re: Turn 7 - Preparations

Sykes reflexively squeezed his eyes shut and felt his stomach turn over as he heard the sniper shot ring out. Reopening his eyes, he felt a wave of relief pour over him as he realized he was still alive. In a heartbeat, he grabbed his pulse rifle and moved forward, directing the other Marines to do ...

Re: Turn 6 - The Hostage - Squad 3,4

(OOC: I asked Juan Perez to roll the dice since my character is directly involved. Posting results here.) The black-armored mercenary looked from man to man. After thinking about it, he moved the pistol away from the girl's head and pointed it at Sykes. "I trade her for you." (Roll: 3 successes) Syk...

Re: Role Call: Polaris Campaign

I just wanted to touch base with everyone real quick. I know we had some new players drop out (Like five to eight new players). I know most of you know this already, but that's pretty standard and expected. It certainly doesn't come as a surprise, though I was tempted to feel discouraged about it. I...

Turn 6 - Prisoners - Squads 1,2

The Marines carefully moved forward and processed the prisoners. Five were awake and surrendering and the Marines cuffed them without resistance. Another six were down, three dead and three tranquilized. The dead resembled modern art more than they resembled human bodies. Three of the prisoners were...
