Oh yes I went there, im bored and ive decided to do a forum members in Apocalypse, I suppose inspired from Azrael and GuavaMoment from Somethingawful to make a game so everyone can have fun :D.

Now basically all you have to put to join in is

Name of Agent : (Can be your forum name, can be not)
Race: (Human/Android/Hybrid)
Preffered Weapons: (Start with basic tech, can always ask for change once new tech gets up)

Also you can put in any other details such as has suicidal tendancies or likes to jump from high places, these may or may not get involved.

I am going to select new recruits primarily for people who have not had a agent yet, I wont be randomly hiring 50 odd agents or cheating (much :P ) so you will have to wait to get your agents activated, however I will be playing in SuperHuman so expect plenty of deaths :D and bear in mind that I wont be getting agents unless there are ones in the pick pool so tell your friends. Once your dead you have to make a new agent, and its almost garunteed that you will die :P

Final note, please keep this thread mainly for new agents but feel free to make comments in actual thread here

I hope you can keep this going. Most of these tend to wane almost shortly after they start when the DM loses interest and stops posting updates.

Might as well get into the spirit of things and sign me up:

Name: NKF
Android (high strength and stamina - don't worry about the accuracy)
Preference of power sword. Uses a stun grapple as secondary. Plus sidearm of your choice for emergencies.
Berserker - charges towards enemies.

Plus I was drunk. a little.

You probably don't need to re-enlist if you've already joined up. I assume you'd just get a new agent with the same name and a counter to show how many times the unit has reincarnated. ;)

Although I suppose you could use it as a chance to issue a new personality. Hmm. Or even switch species and gender. Oh well.

You could just add the same name again if you really want, but yes it does give the chance to switch your personality weapon prefs and species, I spose I could add gender but A normally modify the faces to fit em to males (oddly enough most of the best agents seem to be female)

how you change the portrait in XCom? I see you are using custom ones.

If I can apply, this will be Pocus, with Marsec machinegun and 6 grenades to start with. Love to fire in burst with it.

Very true, but its more fun to mix things up. Though keeping the same name/char would give it a nice paranoia vibe...:D

I've always wanted to do these things :)

Name- Steelion
Race- Hybrid
Primary arsenal- Mind bender + lawpistol combo, and assortment of grenades
Arsenal upgrades Lawpistol-> Plasma pistol->Disruptor->Devastator->Toxigun

Personality quirks- Hates going solo, prefers having a more battle-competent agent covering his back. Also tends to throw grenades like they're going out of style.

This should be fun. :)

Name: Astyanax
Race: Hybrid (Male)
Arsenal: Mind bender, grenades, electroflares (gotta love them electroflares). Power sword for emergencies.
Upgrades: Better grenades, other psi stuff
Style: Hangs out in the back, using psi. Also, loves throwing things at any opportunity (was a pitcher in the MegaPrimus minor leagues). For day missions, primes a grenade to explode on contact during the first turn... :D Would prefer to have a baseball bat to swing, but a power sword suffices. :P

Edit- Oops, did I mix up my games?

Edit #2- Er, take out the electroflares and add landmines...

Some parts, yes. There are no electroflares in Apoc. No night missions either.

CHARACTER EDIT!- if minilaunchers are available, I'd like one instead of disruptor/devastator. If not, use the listed guns.
