    Clearly GtC or Fab should give TRV a list of the submitted names for his use during an actual XCOM: Enemy Unknown game. :P

    I will make my own role and be the guy who quick saves after every turn to un-do any fuckups. And I will do so silently. Over there.

    This idea is a good idea. So, anyone else doing any speculating on a day where there is no vote to kill us with?

    Space... what is the point of it? You have no idea.

    There are no conversions, he denied it because that question should almost always be denied, but Will just determines your ability to resist certain abilities, not a change of alignments.
    I am completely guessing

    Sorry folks, got home later than expected. About to check and see if I've got all the deployments in my inbox. If not, we'll be extending Day 0 until tomorrow night, which...ugh.

    Usually. Sometimes it can be answered, but we had that "CD = yes *wink wink*" thing going for a while.

    I would largely assume the mafia are already mind controlled (and fully under control) soldiers and or Thin Men who look like soldiers O_o


    kinda inclined to think the former. since the thin men kinda stick out

  • AuralynxAuralynx Darkness is a perspective Watching the ego workRegistered User regular
    Yeah, my money is on Thin Men or mind control as well.

    Space... what is the point of it? You have no idea.

  • EgosEgos Registered User regular
    if it were thin men, it would be like

    "Gee guys , I wonder who the infiltrator in our ranks is..."

    "I don't know , Jimmy."

    but this isn't a one-off phalla

    pretty sure our characters can level up and play in the next one

    which is why retreating is an option. if stuff goes too south, we can keep our dudes alive.

    Hmm...if we think we're dealing with infiltrators rather than a squad of aliens, wouldn't the smartest move to be to hunker down in our respective circles and have an overwatch circular firing squad?

    I assume we will be killing aliens as well. I mean we are on a mission.

    Additionally, if the mafia aren't also represented as soldiers on the map, then figuring out who the mafia are would be really really really easy. It'd be as simple as everyone announcing where they are on the map.

    The real question is: What is the mafia's wincon?

  • AuralynxAuralynx Darkness is a perspective Watching the ego workRegistered User regular
    My phrasing could've been better: there's no reason to assume it can't be Thin Men infiltrating X-Com just because it wouldn't have made much sense in the software version. Gandalf gets to change whatever rules he likes.

    My clarification about changing names was a subtle joke in response to Egos's mention of my character being named Starbuck.

    ~Deployment~
    TAC: HQ, squads Alpha, Joker, Eagle, Sparta and Wizard have all reached the drop zone.  They're spread out around the building now, Wizard Squad is nearing the back exit.
    
    HQ: Solid copy, Tactical.
    
    ???: Hello, Commander.
    
    HQ: ...the hell?  Who's that?  How did you get--
    
    ???: You'll find I -- well, we -- you'll find that we've gotten much further than you would dare to imagine.
    
    HQ: What's that supposed to mean?
    
    ???: We are among you. *STATIC*
    
    TAC: Sir!  Sir, Wizard squad is gone.
    
    HQ: Repeat?
    
    TAC: Gone.  Completely.
    
    HQ: Explain yourself, Tactical.
    
    TAC: There was an explosion, we're --
    
    HQ: Was it an IED?  A land mine?  A rocket?  Give me--
    
    TAC: Sir, it was one of them.  One of the squad members, he--
    
    HQ: You're telling me--
    
    TAC: Yes sir.  A Wizard did it.

    HQ: Goddamn it, soldier.
    
    TAC: Sir, we've got a tactical assessment of the remaining squads, they're in position and ready to breach the building.  No sight of x-ray activity yet.
    
    HQ: Well, at least it--
    
    TAC: Sir!
    
    HQ: Fucking stop interrupting me, soldier.
    
    TAC: Yes sir!  Only we've lost radio contact with the ground teams, sir.
    
    HQ: We've WHAT?
    
    TAC: Yes sir.  There seems to be some sort of interference.  We've still got the satellite imagery, but it seems the ground teams have noticed their comms aren't working.
    
    HQ: Goddamn it, then what do we have?
    
    TAC: A clusterfuck, sir.  A clusterfuck.  We're working on it.

    It occurs to me that I didn't clarify this because I thought it was obvious, but: When counting your 5 tiles of movement or your 15 tiles of vision, remember that you should NOT count diagonally, only in the 4 cardinal directions. This means that even if you have a clear LOS to something, if it's further than 15 tiles away (or 7-8 diagonally), it won't be visible to you.

    EDIT: Beaten by kime's question.
