    I am a traditionalist, and traditionalists respect tradition. If to die so that my world can live becomes a tradition, then, oh well, there's always more from that cell culture it came from.

    In the Beginning...

    Update 1: 1979/9/1 - 1979/9/7

    Show Spoiler
    First contact happens off the coast of New Zealand, strange lights being seen out as sea before a sighting of a UFO is reported. Way out of range of our Interceptors and Radar, we can only offer our condolences to the local government and offer to site our future bases closer. We unlock our first research options. The choice of Interceptor or the Scout Car is easy enough.

    [​IMG]

    A small UFO is detected. CommissarDraco is scrambled in his Condor :salute:

    [​IMG]

    Immediately afterwards a second UFO shows up on our radar and Condor-2 is sent to intercept. This UFO takes the scenic route across Egypt, allowing Condor-2 to reach it first.

    [​IMG]

    Oh shit...

    [​IMG]


    Commissar catches up with his target, ready to lose his kill virginity.

    [​IMG]

    ...

    [​IMG]

    Both Interceptors out of action, I order a 3rd Condor, but it'll be 72 hours before arrival. Until then, we've got no teeth.
    :whatho:

    UFO-01 lands. Maybe Commissar Draco did enough damage before being taken down? Facing the prospect of being unable to do anything, I order in the troops. Death or Glory! Meanwhile, UFO-02 taunts us by landing closer to our base while Charlie-1 is in the air.

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]
    :rage:
    UFO-01 took off at the last possible moment and gunned down our dropship.

    RIP Cpl. Tytus :salute:
    RIP Cpl. MotherMachinae :salute:


    Update 1.5: 1979/9/7 - 1979/9/19
    Show Spoiler

    We're looking at a minimum of 2.5 days to recover our aircraft, and that isn't taking into account the repairs that will be needed.

    [​IMG]

    Condor-3 has arrived in base, her pilot hungry for vengeance. UFO-01 is still flitting around - our honour is on the line.

    [​IMG]

    Condor-3 succeeds where Commissar Draco failed, but with no dropship we are unable to launch an assault on the downed UFO. Tytus and MotherMachinae will hopefully be satisfied by the way local forces nuked them from orbit :salute:

    [​IMG]

    The next 3 days are quiet, allowing command to recover from the horrific events of early September. But soon enough our radars detect another alien vessel above Russia.

    [​IMG]

    Condor-1 and Condor-2 are still being repaired, but Condor-3 is enough to deal with the UFO :salute:

    [​IMG]

    The dropship is grounded, so once again we are forced to alert the local government about the UFO crash site rather than raid it ourselves.

    [​IMG]

    6 days pass before we detect another UFO at the very South-East edge of our radar. Condor-1's new pilot teams up with Condor-2 and move to take it down as our soldiers lock and load.

    Reporting for shield-bearing duties. Give me a shield and I'm ready to go, or better yet, give me 2 of them so I can protect my back.

    The update has been updated with the second half of what it should have contained.


    Having now got ShareX up and running I'll be able to do proper updates rather than spend time battling a slow upload process.


    Our first mission is complete and it was glorious :smug:

    Wow. Now that is a rough way to start the game.

    Also, posting to subscribe to thread, will wait until my own overdue demise in the other LP before I try and sign-up as a plasma-sponge here. :M

    I'm not planning to let you die yet, Stabby. You're a glorious riflemurderperson, and I'm getting you the Order of Terra :love:


    [edit]


    You got the 20th kill during the alien base raid... then you got impregnated by a Chrysalid. :negative:

    Your posthumous award will be sent to your loved ones back at home, hero of Codexia :salute:
