Re: Turn 4: Roll Out!

Sergeant Major Sykes' expression hardened and his hands clenched but that was the only outward sign of emotion. He could hear the anger in Lieutenant Harper's voice and knew that she felt the same way about this kind of scientific study. He had seen firsthand the atrocities committed in the name of ...

Re: Turn 3: Starting Out

Sykes watched as his platoon loaded up and listened to the spirited banter. That was a good sign. If everyone was relaxed it would be a more efficient unit. He turned to the Lieutenant, "We should probably split up, Ma'am. I'll ride with Fireteam 1." He climbed into the car he had affectionately nam...

Re: Turn 3: Starting Out

"Sergeant Mayor Sykes, let's get the party started. We are leaving in 20, get the platoon ready and assign the teams to our vehicles. I will transfer all tactictal data to the vehicles CPU. After that i want a full check of our communications. Move." <Tag Sykes> "Yes, Ma'am," Sykes replied decisive...

Re: Turn 2: The Briefing

Like Morse, Sykes was pleased to be operating in tandem with other units again. He tried to let this enthusiasm overwhelm his pessimistic and embittered attitude of the last few days. Samantha called out; "Sergeant Hall here.....who're the UPP?" Sykes answered Hall's question before the Lieutenant C...

Re: Novelization of Campaigns

Six more months have passed so I'll post another update. I fell off from writing again but I'm back on the horse! I will post how many pages I have written in 6"x9" US trade standard paperback. And this is a low estimate because the final products will have additional pages for chapter breaks, intro...

Re: Turn 1: Breakfast

"Chow up, people," said Sykes enthusiastically, slapping his hands on Paulson's shoulders and shaking him benevolently. He moved into line and poured himself a cup of coffee. He sat down at the table and inhaled deeply before taking a sip. "Man, that's actually decent coffee. Should we be worried? ...

Re: Prologue

Sykes sat somewhat sullenly with his arms crossed. He was trying to appear impassive but inside he was boiling over. After so much shore leave he had almost started to feel human again. The woman he had met had made him feel valued and important if only briefly and superficially. But now was the spl...

Re: Epilogue

Sykes read the order. 2 weeks of shore leave. His people would start going soft. Some of his marines had disobeyed orders. It was a small order and it was under intense pressure. But he had told them to keep the helmets on and Carlson had taken it off. And then he had gone nuts from some fucking bio...

Re: Turn 13: Call In the Cavalry

Sergeant Major Sykes shook his head as he considered all they had been through. "Well, that could have gone worse considering where we were and how little time we had to prepare. You all did exceptionally well, people. I'm sorry about the losses." He hung his head and rubbed his eyes. It felt great ...

Re: Turn 13: Call In the Cavalry

Sergeant Major Sykes couldn't believe his ears. A fucking leviathan of the deep. He wished so strongly to be safely on dry land again. But wishing would get him nowhere, so he jumped into action. "Belay that, Henniger. We aren't leaving the shuttle behind. We will have to tow it into the Nehalennia....

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)
