Our new Indie Games subforum is now open for business in G&T. Go and check it out, you might land a code for a free game. If you're developing an indie game and want to post about it, follow these directions. If you don't, he'll break your legs! Hahaha! Seriously though.
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!

    Honestly, sir?

    I doubt this mission will do any good on the main issue.

    The battleships have landed and had enough time to release their payload.

    One hour would be enough to move several infection vectors offsite with deployment mechanisms. We can disrupt their establishment of secure facilities, maybe capture leaders. Enough to justify the risk.

    But we should write off North American support right now. And, possibly, a large portion of the population.

    I've forwarded large scale containment protocols. I hope we never need to use them.

    Those emails somehow ended up in my inbox, Mr Chiasaur. Not to worry, I forwarded them straight on to the Director.

    One point, however: carpet bombing the continental United States with megaton-sized nuclear warheads isn't really a 'containment' policy so much as an 'eradication' policy...

    To be fair, the listings under "XK Class end of the world scenarios" leaves the average reader incosolable for 2 to 4 days.

    ... as useful a tool as it is for weeding out unlikely prospects, that thing really should be given an SCP designation of its own at this point.

    See the grenades?

    Seems protocol on this one is complete destruction of any potentially surviving Chryssalids. Flight suits should allow indefinite protection from infestion for the officers, at least.

    There's no such thing as safe in this sort of scenario, but it seems the proper precautions are in play.

    I wish I could say they'll do any good.

    Well, you see, if there's more than one chryssalid between you and the landing craft, you're onside, and if you shoot them from behind, that's at least a yellow card, unless you're the last man standing, in which case it's a red. There's something to do with kicking a sectoid's balls into a goal too, but I forget the specifics. Oh, and if you score three headshots, you get to take the heads home with you.

    I think the ground troops are calling it "Sock 'Er" or something along those lines.

    The fact you had absinthe available says a good deal.

    It means you didn't need to distill your own vodka from seaweed and E Coli. One of the more pleasant memories from the aquatic division.

    Word of advice. Don't play Four Yorkshoremen with salvage. We'll win.

    It was recommended to save the last round for yourself against Chrysallids. No point to it. If you die, you will die long before you get the chance to reverse your weapon.

    Not if you're slow, sure. That's what the suicide drills are for. 15 minutes a day, every day practicing how to quickly and efficiently end your life before your body is subverted into a tool for the enemy. Of course, the transition period to a new firearm can cost valuable miliseconds, but generally you can improve success rates to 65% or so.

    Don't tell me people have been slacking.
