Ahh, here we go...
Mission 1:

"General Facehugger, sir! We've recieved a call from the Mutant alliance! Someone in one of the slums has found an alien!"

"Deploy squad one."

"Yes sir"

Squad one Composition
Cpl. Facehugger
J'ordos
Whitewashed
Jenny
Robodojo
NKF

"All right men! We are going in with the first wave! We will kill anything not of this Earth! Do you get me!?"

"We get you SIR!"

Facehugger smiled. It was going to be a bad day to be an alien...

Robo: "Sir, looks like they are launching grenades!"
Facehugger: "Duck and cover!"
*5 seconds later*
Facehugger: "Where's the explosion?"
Suddenly a lightning quick brainsucker leapt from the pod's remains. Straight onto Facehugger's head!
Facehugger: "Get it off me! Get it off me!"

Whitewashed: "Don't worry sir, I'll handle him!"
Bang! Bang! Bang! Brainsucker is still on Facehugger's head
Facehugger: <Facehugger is starting to make choking noises>

Robo: "Eat this!"
Bang! Bang! Bang! Bang! Bang! Brainsucker falls off and is turned into a peice of brainsucker brand swiss cheese.
Facehugger: "Look out, there are more of the sneaky little buggers!"

Bang, Bang, Bang, Bang, Bang. Brainsucker is still on Facehugger's head.
Facehugger: "Hit the alien not me!"
Facehugger: "What the heck is happening to me!? Arrgh!"
The brainsucker fell off of Facehugger's head.
Robo: "Are you alright sir!?"
Facehugger: "I feel weird..."

Facehugger: "Die! Die! Die!"

First one, then two, then three anthropods fell before the high explosive onslaught.

Robo: "Look out behind you!"
Yet another brainsucker was making its way to Facehugger's head.
Whitewashed: "Die!"
Pow! Pow! Pow!
Brainsucker is turned into brainsucker souflee by Whitewashed's pistol.

I would have recommended both squads run the same way, then have squad 1 hang back and let squad 2 brave the open space and leg it to the other side near the scaffolding. That way you could've approached the courtyard from two directions at once.

Mind you, I'm not really disappointed. This is the first mission, after all, and any fancy legwork we'd have performed would've just been for nought. ;)

Though I'm rather curious -- how did I get injured?

NKF, you weren't injured. That was Robo. I...I mean the aliens tossed an AP grenade on him...

Robo just happened to get the same face you did. :)

As to why the squads split up...I haven't played that map in a while, so I was concerned that the aliens might try to flank me.

Next mission will come sometime today (I hope. It depends on if the aliens are willing to show. Or...I could have fun with the cult for awhile...Ahh the possibilities that Apoc offers. :D)

Ah, so it was just a bit of over excitement. Nothing to worry about then. I just assumed that first screenshot is depicting where our units began at the start of the mission. That mysterious health loss is what was bugging me.

As for stun raids: I don't condone them, but I'm not going to complain if it means early access to plasma pistols and the swords (swords are rare, even when they do come on the market). :)

Seriously though, it's ultimately up to our game master to decide on that one.

Is that me in that picture there, holding the stun gun? I look handsome :) (and apparently with a little dent on my chasis now, no?)

BTW: I think stun guns are better left at snap shot (aimed is too slow for such short range)
Passenger ship terror site, first turn, I open the door of my Triton, there is a Tasoth up on the next floor (his back is facing the screen so I don't know what weapon he has).

One of my guys fire at him, hit, he reaction fires with Thermal Shock Launcher. The whole crew stunned. Mission over.

You know, it's times like this when a kneeling soldier with dual grapples on full auto can really shine. They can neutralise the poppers very quickly as long as you know they're coming at you. Once they're down, they can be kept unconscious by leaving someone on top of them or you could just kill them from a safe distance.

Or if you have plasma guns (alien disrupters and toxin works too). They can kill off the poppers at decent ranges without detonating them. I believe the same can be extended to the power swords too, but that's cutting it far too close, and the popper would have triggered its detonator before you could get off the first swing. Better leave it for when the popper is stunned by the grapples.

P. S: No, I'm not suggesting this because I'm specialising in these equipment. No, far from it. It just coincides with my equipment choices, is all . ;)

After using my domination whip (usually only reserved for female Xcom agents, excepting Jenny of course,) I have gotten it to work. Now here come the exploits of a raid on the cult.

And in this mission...
Someone *J'ordos* Will *j'ordos* Die! *J'ordos*!!!

It started normally enough. Squad one, consisting of Facehugger, Robo and Whitewashed moved deeper into the temple while Squad 2 (J'ordos, Jenny and Jonaleth) moved in another direction, hoping to find some cultists to kill.
It was strange, there were no cultists anywhere. Then...Suddenly there were four cultists waiting for squad 1!

Facehugger opened up with his high explosive bullets while Robo fired enough lead to sink a battleship, or take down a overspawn.

One bad guy was killed outright as a shell exploded on his head.

No. You are in squad 2, with an auto cannon. Just wait, it hasn't fallen to heck yet.

*Bang! Bang! Bang!* There goes another cultist, killed by Robo's machine gun.
Squad 2 has almost met up with squad 1, and most of the cultists are dead. Or so we thought...

The final cultist in that group was killed. Squad two moved up to support squad one. And boy was that support needed. A cultist squad had emerged from the lift that whitewashed was supposed to be guarding. Jonaleth opened fire with his twin stungrapples. However, his target aquisition software has been buggy as of late- he hit J'ordos. J'ordos took the high voltage like a real man, as it caused him to lose all control of his muscles. He fell face first on the ground, completely unconcious.

"Err... Miscalculation..."
Passenger ship terror site, first turn, I open the door of my Triton, there is a Tasoth up on the next floor (his back is facing the screen so I don't know what weapon he has).

One of my guys fire at him, hit, he reaction fires with Thermal Shock Launcher. The whole crew stunned. Mission over.

The cultist raised his weapon and fired, a searing beam of energy lancing whitewashed and going straight through his armor.

Whitewashed: <coughs blood> Ohh crap...
The cultist fired again, this time hitting Whitewashed's head, killing him instantly.

Facehugger: Whitewashed? Die you damn cultists!
Bang! Bang! Bang!

Whitewashed's executioner was slain by an explosive shell from Facehugger's autocannon.

Another cultist tried to make a covert approach, only to be gunned down by Robo's machine gun.

There could only be one or two left...Right? WRONG!!!

Robo moved up, hunting the final cultists with an ironic religious fervor.

Robo: "I've found them! Requesting suport!"
Facehugger and squad 2 moved up, but they weren't fast enough. The cultists charged at robo.

Robo: "Eat it! Eat it! Ea- <click> Aww crap! The gun is empty!"
Robo was now almost entirely defenseless against the cultists. They got closer and closer, moving in for the kill. "If I go, I'm taking you with me!!!"
Robo primed a stun grenade and dropped it at his feet. The tear gas like cloud rapidly put he and his attackers to sleep. Mission accomplished.

Total casualities: Robo Dojo- Lighltly wounded, will need to spend time in the Base machine shop.
Whitewashed- KIA
J'ordos-Electrically zapped, will need to recuperate from having his muscles over stimulated

Promotions: Robo Dojo, J'ordos, Jenny.

Medals Recieved: J'ordos- Purple Heart, Medal of Valor
Cpl. Facehugger- Legion of honor, Medal of Valor
Jonaleth Irenicus- Friendly Fire badge (pay is docked)
Whitewashed- Purple Heart, Legion of Honor, Medal of Valor, Bronze star, X-com phallus of bravery. (All given to his family.)

Whitewashed will be remembered, until a new Whitewashed is recruited.

YAY!!! I have a friendly fire badge!!!

Lucky, good for nuttin'... I only have a friendly fired badge. <_<

I hope that changes soon, Facehugger. :)
Posted Image Haha! I'm now the Supreme Commander of X-COM. Time to kiss Earth goodbye.

My first order of business: Homeless people make cheap rookies, and are great at opening UFO doors. Heck, they're so cheap, I'm going to replace all personel with them!
Secondly: This organisation takes too much money to run. Weapon shipments will come from Siberia from now on. Costly maintenance is to be cut on all facilities. That includes venting.
Thirdly: We have a new colonel. His name is Facehugger, he loves aliens, and I want you all to treat him with respect.
Lastly: I'll be in my condo on an undisclosed island, if you need me. Good day.
