    Default Last journals of a redshirt: Let's Play Terror From The Deep

    One of the great mysteries of the recent past is the events of the second alien war. While the first conflict with extraterrestrial life (Officially designated Operation Red Sky) is well documented inf fiction and fact (Ranging from Jonathan Mendez's 12 part "The Alien War: Triumph and Torment" miniseries for PBS to "Jason Statham IS Alex Knight IN X-Com: Enforcer!" ) the second war is still shrouded in mystery. Nearly the entirety of public knowledge was summed up by the official American ambassador to the X-Com project in his legendary statement to the UN: "We pay them a million a month for salvage ops. They get salvage that ain't any first war gear. Then all of the sudden the ocean's on fire."

    Rumors have circulated ever since the fateful day in 2040 as to the exact source of the mysterious alien corpses, and what connection it had to the massive ecological disaster that led to the megacity project. Stories of deadly robotic supersoldiers, the deployment of superweapons, even the return of presumed dead X-com veterans, all these have circulated to fill the vacuum left by the official story.

    Recently, we have managed to acquire a journal that seems to have belonged to one of the first soldiers to enter the second alien conflict. It is, if authentic, the first concrete account of one of history's greatest enigmas.

    Known Casualties:
    Flickerdart
    Worira
    Conjob
    Factotum (MIA)
    Eleventh Hour
    Anonomuss
    Silent Dragoon (MIA)
    Asheram
    Anarchic Energy (MIA)



    Well, although it isn't starting tomorrow or anything, I will be LPing Terror From the Deep. KOTOR would need fiddling to work, and largish screens, so, delaying that, other options didn't seem right, and no-one was making suggestions. So, I decided on something nice and relaxing. Thus, Terror from the Deep. I may have made a mistake with reasoning somewhere along the line.

    So, sign up for a watery grave here. And get in on the ground floor for disaster! Or another abandoned LP. Which is a kind of disaster, right?

    Also: IRONMAN.

    I hereby proclaim myself chief suicidal-charger, last-ditch-grenade-jumper and mock-the-faceless-monstrosity-because-he-totally-deserves-it-er. Everyone else will have to get in line since I have no plans to give up my position without a horribly gruesome fight that will, at worst, land me in the hospital for a week. If the aliens are lucky. Else, I will come out with an extra hand.

    Ready but hoping not to die. Also in an unrelated note volunteering for financial drives, recruitment rallies, y'know, anything on the surface. In a bunker. Deep underground, but not quite That deep.

    You're doing another LP already? Awesome.

    I missed half of the first X-Com adventures and only got in on the action as a reader. This time things'll be different!

    So sign me up. I love to swim, I do.

    It's been a bit, GitP. If you're reading this, you're either digging through old stuff, or I've posted for the first time in forever.

    If you want to stay in touch, reach out to me on twitter (same username).

    The best answer is always to ask your DM.
    Unless you're the DM, in which case you should talk to your players.

    Question for chiasaur: what kind of scientist do you want me to be?

    a) Sane, boring, everyday scientist
    b) Mad scientist worthy of Girl Genius
    c) Completely off my rocker and would make great friends with Johan Liebert

    Yep, I'm signing up again as head scientist and researcher. Maybe this time I won't pump you full of ADAM. Maybe.

    Hopefully, all these other suckers will die quickly, so I can actually get in on the action this time.

    Y'know, I just downloaded the original X-Com and played for a bit for the first time.
    I lost an entire 10-man and one-tank team twice.
    Once on a terror mission. Once on a base assault.

    This should be fun. Especially considering I just dropped a completely green 14-man squad into yet ANOTHER base.

    I don't envy you this undertaking, Chia.
