    DIRECTOR'S LOG
    APRIL 15TH, 2015

    Delta-3 had to be taken off the Skyranger on a stretcher. Medical told me that she's lucky it wasn't a black bag; her vest was defeated and the projectile just missed her heart.

    Meanwhile, we've had urgent intervention requests from New York City, Lille and Durban; saucers are crawling all over their skies. We can't wait for Delta-3 to get back on her feet; I gave the order for immediate re-deployment of Big Bird.

    She's going to be pissed.

    I'm veto'ing any vote for an American mission this time, but there's a legitimate decision to be made between France or South Africa. Either choice will cause a panic & gift us something useful.

    Personally, I'm in favor of the extra money (we can then build a Workshop in a pinch if we want the Engineers)

    Now normally, I'm rather uneasy when it comes to scientology, but after a long talk with my good friend Tom he made me realise just how close we are surpassing our limitations.

    But there seem to be doubters amongst us. Even now, small groups of armed thugs are jeopardising our very future!

    We're going to lose a country anyway, but overall panic seems higher in Europe, so I say we go to France.

    Going to France is a better deal since we want to pick up Africa before Europe anyway and that gives us a reason to put says there

    France seems like the more prudent choice, if only so that we can keep the region open for sacrifice. Hopefully the Director has some satellites ready to go for the 5 alarm countries in North America and Africa (and hopefully to fill out South Am for the interrogation bonus).

    Yeah, I vote France, then we can drop sats to finish the South America bonus, plus two in Africa for panic reduction.

    I think it happens after base assault; it's heavily emplied that Annette was used as a focus for the aliens to screw up the base.

    No, it has to do with the fact that you're done nothing but throw lies, blatant flasehoods, and downright dumb statements at us so far.

    It happens as soon as you need someone to use the Gollup Chamber. Gameplay-wise, it's basically a means to guarantee that you can initiate the end-game right then & there.

  • DarkPrimusDarkPrimus premium Registered User regular
    Before the Gollop Chamber. Don't remember when exactly, but before the Gollop Chamber, as I don't have the option to build that yet but have heard the expository bit about Annette.

    exalt was after a psion that the French had. Then the aliens find out about it and think she might be worthy of ascending and try to get her back from them. You rescue her in deluge and I believe rescue three more in "the furies" but I haven't actually done that map. They're all psychics and so guarantee a full high will psion squad at the end game if you do the missions

    The missions trigger as soon as you have psionic testing.

    An extra 200 cash will seriously put us in a strong position for the next month. Grabbing that would also help a lot in keeping Europe less antsy. Egypt will flip out but we can drop a satellite on them, South Africa will be on 4/5 panic?

    Excerpt from the diary of Roderigo "Durinia" Linan
    Man, don't really know why people are so glum around here. Delta team is straight rollin' these xeno payasos wherever they show up. They got little grey babies or scrawny guys and we've got freakin' robocop on our team! Can't see it being much longer before we punt these dudes back to where they came from. Shame, too - I was hoping to get out in the field to do some of that kickin' myself.

    Oh well - time to hit the fitness center and see if I can get in tight with one of those ladies with club access...I hear they got the good tequila in there.

    We've lost contact with all assets inside of Egypt. Word is that it will join the list of countries labelled 'status black' by the end of the month.

    Y'know what? I've had my fill of this bureaucratic bullshit.


    m25.jpg

    We've been getting civilian feed out of Chongqing; people are literally getting eaten alive over there. My dad told me to always do what I knew was right, so I'm doing that today: fuck this 'status black' bullshit. Delta is going in.

    Nobody outside of HQ-TOMORROW is being notified until Big Bird is already in the air.

    Holy crap! This is really a great bit of luck...
    If this goes well, we'll be able to pull the Asia region from the brink! If this goes badly, we'll see some fresh faces in the team! Maybe... the squad roster is 8 deep so a full squad wipe will only result in 2 rookies being brought in...
