Our rules have been updated and given their own forum. Go and look at them! They are nice, and there may be new ones that you didn't know about! Hooray for rules! Hooray for The System! Hooray for Conforming!

    That's what you think... but Theidar's just waiting for those psi-labs to be researched and built, and the next thing you know? The highest scorer's had his brain cut out, and one of the hovertanks has become a psionic cyborg. A Psiborg, if you will.

    I figure there'll be an upsurge of troop recruitment when the new bases are built. So for now, there's not much point in wishing death on those who are in the roster already.

    But that's basically one of the fundamental tenets behind x-com. Everyone is wishing for everyone to die spectacularly.

    Today is a good day for everyone else to die.

    Seriously though, the Fishman is way too good at this game. I'm still like 50 people down on the recruit list. Maybe we should form a kamikaze squad for people who want their 5 minutes of glory. haha

    Listen up, everyone, we've got a new guy C&C Officer arriving today.

    Oh shit, is that today?
    I didn't think he was arriving for a day or two.

    No, it's today. Director wants someone to show him around, show him the operation.

    Well, I can't do it. I'm supposed to be guarding medical.

    Oh.. well, how about you?

    I'm down at medical, too.

    What? Why's everyone guarding medical today?

    Rank's getting evaluated for discharge from the incap list today, we're on full alert in case he doesn't get passed for active duty.

    Okay, that makes sense. Alright, who's not guarding medical?

    ...dammit.

    Alright, you're on FNG duty. Rest of you, make sure you've checked your armour before you head down to medical. With the pounding we've dished out recently, Rank is likely to be the worst thing you face all week.

    I hear we have some new blood in the ranks.

    Yes, the new recruits arrived at Ribaldry. They're getting the crash course in X-Com operations and mandate now. And we've got that new C&C officer at Wubble Woo.

    What's this put our situation like now?

    Well, with Rank passing medical clearance and the recruits and Aedan at Ribaldry, our Contact Teams are back up to full strength.

    What about combat readiness?

    Unfortunately we're still about a week away from clearing the infrastructure backlog and resupplying weapons and equipment, but we can run limited-engagement missions.

    So, not anywhere near able to run a high-engagement mission like an alien base assault, then?

    It is not recommended. At the moment we don't even have a full compliment of Power Armour. We should hold off on attacking the Alien Base until we can field a first-choice team with first-choice equipment.

    Well, time is on our side. We know where they are, that means we get to choose when the Base Assault mission happens.

    Lt. Iolo? Sir? Try to keep up, we have a lot to get through.

    I'm sorry, it's just so much to take in...

    You get used to it. Pretty soon, it all becomes much like any other assignment.

    Somehow I doubt that.

    Well.. perhaps not. Anyway, when a UFO is detected, we run Hyperwave-detection routines through that console over there, and if comes up positive, you should get a decrypt message.

    You mean like this?

    Clear out those hangars! Lock down the base computers!

    All non-essential personnel, please follow the blue lines towards your designated evacuation facility.

    Clear out those storage units! We need to move this out of here!

    I want you to make arrangements to move as much recovered alien material as possible to Happenstance base.

    Theidar Unit has disconnected from the hardline and is set to autonomous control.

    No, no, we need the equipment out of the Skyranger as well. The armoury doesn't have everything we need.

    Would the following people please report to the North Armoury: Captain Moriveth, Sergeant Rankenphile, Private Orikaeshigitae...

    What's our situation?

    UFO%20Defense%202010-04-13%2007-37-17-92.jpg

    All but a handful of non-essentials evacuated. We've transferred a large portion of our stores to Happenstance, and another large portion has been released on contract to research projects in partner nations. Our aircraft have evacuated to a holding pattern to avoid destruction, but if we don't repel these forces, we'll have nowhere for them to go. Access to the Sublevels is locked down; the only way in from the surface is via the Hangars or Access Lift.

    Do we have a security feed of the base?
