DiploCom Project: Season 2

Recommended Posts

Commander Nodle has been relieved of command by the Diplo Council. The council has been left with no other options. Operation Easter is enacted. 

 

Somewhere deep within the recesses of Diplo, Commander Fergus is roused from a drunken slumber. Bleary eyed, he looks up and sees the tablet being presented to him. In a moment, the confusion in his eyes is replaced with grim determination. 

An hour later, he emerges refreshed into the CIC. The battle map already displays a mission en route. Just like old times. 

4nckrGc.jpg

This mission is a simple smash-and-go. Get in, destroy the ADVENT transmitter, get out. An easy job. Will Fergus' skills be up to the test? 
rtGskbl.jpg

Under his command he has a handful of troops, as rusty or inexperienced as Fergus himself. Seleucas Ontuas, or 'The Phalanx', the man responsible for enacting operation easter is heading up the team. Following him in are Baledwyr, Stormy and Backpack Girl. Not the pick of the litter by any means, but the DiploCom project has a lot to do to pick itself up. 
 

r3CUwj6.jpg

The team's infil to the ADVENT facility is quick and clean. 

 

UXEUUgV.jpgThey manage to push in before opening up an ambush with a launched grenade by Phal. 
JSPADpM.jpg

Things start to go south immediately, with enemy sections pushing in from the north, as Bors accuracy seems to fail him. 

MzYMnoL.jpg

Apparently tankers can shoot though, as stormy drives back the enemy. 

 

NVc3GO7.jpg
Phal quickly finds himself assaulted by animated corpses, but manages to wrestle the creature off of him. 
FE7FmAU.jpg

In one bloody moment, phal clears out the xeno ahead of the team with a long burst from his assault cannon. 

 

sb7gV9G.jpg

With the way clear, stormy sets the charge, and the team extracts. With the team returned, the DiploCom Project sets about findings its bearings globally.

Excellent work, ladies and gentlemen.
An attempt by two groups, 'the reapers' and a group led by an individual named 'mox' seem to desire cooperation. These groups seem to have taken the helm of fighting the aliens' global presence, so it seemed wise for the DiploCom project to ingratiate itself with these new organizations, in order to prevent repeating the tragedy of the EXALT incident. 

YrGSa7t.jpg

Phal and Stormy would form the first recce det, that would rendezvous with the reapers before moving on to the rendezvous with mox. 

T7AG06f.jpg

Immediately, the reason that these territories were considered safe from ADVENT intervention is discovered. The fireteam finds itself under attack by shambling simulacrums of humanity. They seem to have no sense of self preservation, and go down by the dozen! Nonetheless, their limited ammo and numbers meant that fireteam alpha would have to move quickly to the rendezvous. 

IObQ2Li.jpg

Meanwhile, fireteam Bravo, consisting of Bors and Spankfurt, found themselves amidst a freshly ruined advent troop transport, where they encountered the leader named mox. Their target in hand, they moved quickly to rendezvous with Fireteam Alpha. 
9OTvHPP.jpg

They soon found themselves under attack by advent purification teams, which were easy prey for their longer ranged rifles. 

 

bXdtoIO.jpg

As they held out at the rendezvous, bors finally learned how to shoot, and took the high ground to take the enemy by the dozen. 
TaCJyF7.jpg

When fire team alpha finally arrived, the happiness of the rendezvous was quickly disrupted, as a specialized ADVENT agent, a so called 'chosen' attacked the meeting. While this forged the two adversarial resistance leaders together, the chosen also proved to be a serious challenge for an entire DiploCom section, only barely driving her off with several injured troops. 

 

IgN3C9K.jpg

Rapidly calling the skyranger, but with trooper mox falling to the enemy, the mission was nonetheless deemed a staggering success for the diplocom project. Two new allied organizations, and phal seeming likely to recover from his wounds. 

6erOBqb.jpg

Bors and Stormy, because of their heroic defeat of the ADVENT assassin, seem to have become more functional as a team. 

image.thumb.png.ce8b307279eb7f29f76a933f18c8c110.png

Bors is now wanted by ADVENT for driving off the assassin.

Well gentlemen, it appears we've finally popped back up on ADVENT's radar, and they're reacting to us by attacking defenseless civilian targets! It's a good thing I might have a couple suprises in store for them. Although, it looked like the Assassin might make an appearance, so nobody was quite sure who would be doing the surprising here.

DlQFni8.jpg

As Bors and Stormy were quite exhausted, two of our newer recruits, Commander Nodle and Walrus have been tasked to 1 section. 

Mgbowry.jpg

The team hit the ground with a loud entrance, the sound of battle from further inside the settlement meaning that stealth was out the window for this one. 

6VoHLtP.jpg

Nodle and Walrus advanced up together, and they found themselves quickly engaged by a sectoid team. Nodle opened fire, but was unable to connect. 

WtC4nZ6.jpg

Phal, bringing up the rear, ended the first threat with a brutal burst of fire. His firepower revealed a squad of ADVENT troopers that had been moving up to try and flank the resistance firebase that was holding in the center, but also left the DiploCom strike force dangerously exposed. 

 

uU8xA2Q.jpg

Walrus moved into the firebase, shoring up the resistance fighters who were desperately holding the line, adding much needed steel to the defenses. 

 

csNKU9K.jpgMeanwhile, phal and nodle engaged and destroyed the flanking sectoid team. 

 

1Smn14v.jpg

Phal found himself exposed to the last trooper after nodle wasn't quite able to put him in the ground, but phal's luck seems to have held once again. 

AxLimlz.jpg

Meanwhile, the reaper attache we had brought discovered quite the messy situation inside of the stronghold. Advent troopers had broken through, and were butchering the civilians inside. 

 

y7VzNyj.jpg

The firefight outside continued, with phal reminding an advent trooper why flanking the man with the machine gun and missing is an unwise career move. 

 

FbGIsFv.jpg

The reaper mopped up the advent forces inside of the building in the meantime. 

 

514Ev9u.jpg

As walrus killed the last sectoid, he turned around just in time to witness a fleshy abomination emerge from what had looked to be a refugee. 

VqhjgVI.jpg

The militia fighters shored up walrus, lending some suppressing fire on the monstrosity.

 

Qo9jfaP.jpg

The resistance fighters were unable to fell it though, and Nodle gave the thing a full magazine as it bolted towards him. 

 

wMrtGxr.jpg

Which turned out to be just enough. Although the civilian casualties were regrettable, the operation turned out to be largely successful. 

qT8Hqze.jpg

Our next mission was also a big one. A quick smash and grab, to retake the fellow we lost in the initial rendezvous with resistance forces. Grabbing him would make Beto far more likely to consider allying with us. Stealth was a major objective, so only a team of three could go in. 

 

5ADmcnT.jpg

The infiltration went flawlessly, with Stormy even managing to hack the door and rescue the prisoner without advent noticing. Unfortunately for our rescuers, a lone ADVENT infantier decided to look backwards at the wrong moment, and we were looking at a whole fort full of advent troops coming towards us. 

 

FRvDDDM.jpg

The skyranger was called as close as physically possible, but advent troops were rapidly on approach as well. 

 

qFUr8sy.jpg

Stormy gave them a quick burst of AR fire, and with that parting gift the team exfiltrated successfully. 

Our final op of the night was an assassination. An ADVENT general was visiting to give some inspiration to the troops, or perhaps inspect something. His motivations weren't entirely clear. His travel plans however, were. 

yU0n4Qa.jpg

Spankfurt would be the key to this operation, his rifle providing the oversight the team needed as they set up their positions and awaited the general's vehicle. 

 

f1haKy0.jpg

Spank blasted him, as walrus charged up to finish him with a blade.

grberKU.jpg

As walrus gutted the bastard, the alarms could be heard throughout the block.

bGmFCay.jpg

Quickly however, the team found themselves surrounded. They had to get the body out for debriefing, so the team adopted a defensive stance and prepared to weather the storm of his bodyguards.

 

e7Dsmar.jpg

Things started to go poorly immediately. An attempt by the aliens to mind control stormy resulted in him unloading his AR into the creatures face, but Spank was unable to resist the mental domination. 

ufb2Hhi.jpg

Spank, under this domination, decided to use his grenade to blow the temporarily stunned bors off his feet.

Ci5sMjY.jpg

Bors meanwhile, found himself under fire from three sides, while stormy desperately tried to close the gap towards the mind controlling sectoid. 

FOquHbg.jpg
Stormy opened up!

iBChcf1.jpg

Stormy managed to get it, but both bors and walrus found themselves on the wrong end of stun batons, knocking them both unconscious and leaving them grievously wounded.

EQEPzRU.jpg

However, the aliens fell back at this point, not realizing how close DiploCom was to breaking. 
6XUQBtn.jpg

On the way back, bors struggled to get his bearings. The battle had done him poorly. A bad op, all things considered, but nobody died and the objective had been succeeded. In his office, Commander Fergus began to wonder if soon this would be considered a good outcome.

Arthos, I don't actually know your nationality so you're temporarily russian. You were also placed deployed on a secret assignment with phal, so no photo of you until the next AAR.

Hell of a lot to cover, might need to break this up into two posts. 
 

r2NYlr4.jpgSometimes opportunity comes knocking. Sometimes you need to jump. The chosen was here, as well as the lost, so it would be a very risky assignment. The reward however, would be worth it. 

ujcKEO1.jpg

Knowing the chosen would be there, we sent two of our allied fighters, alongside stormy and spank. 

npGjcyA.jpg

As soon as we hit the ground, we were basically engaged. It was a trap! 
IlGyf3k.jpg

The sections position was compromised, and the skyranger was under interceptor attack. It was time to fight to the last man. 

 

HcY6yh3.jpg

ADVENT troops closed in on our position, as the team picked loopholes and prepared to sell their lives for whatever they could. 

1wLkja7.jpg

Advent squads charged time and time again, and time and time again they were repulsed. 

 

pvgC0e4.jpg
The sounds of battle had brought the lost in force though! Soon the ADVENT troops found themselves sandwiched between our firebase and the lost's position.

DyVaEHO.jpg

Stormy took this opportunity to try and grab some of the supplies that had been the initial objective. ADVENT had secured most of it already, but we managed to snag a few crates. 

 

ZAKdYAH.jpg

Mox was grabbed by a xeno, while our reaper ally was interrogated when she was knocked unconscious on top of her fireposition, with no allies in range to help her. The chosen took this information and left its troops to die. 
 

u0JIglz.jpgWith the chosen gone, the battle quickly swung back in the favour of Diplo forces, with the lost being mopped up quickly as well. 

UboeCep.jpg

Nonetheless, the Chosen had clearly discovered valuable intel. Things were beginning to close in on the DiploCom project.

 

hxZ74k0.jpg

Spank made Sergeant though, and stormy made it to Lt. 

 

MJFQDv9.jpg
Meanwhile, burden and nodle, who had been on top secret assignment in asia, were discovered! They had been gathering intelligence in a hashish den, and had accidentally let slip that they were resistance operatives. 
 

WOk9iGw.jpg
They fled into the dead zones of an old urban center, attempting to evade advent pursuit. 

 

QoePlQG.jpg

They scaled a nearby building, as advent patrols began cleansing the area behind them.

Ksep6gJ.jpg

Patrols nearly found them, but the two of them managed to slip by. 

 

ZkYZYSW.jpg

Right into the nest of the lost! The two found themselves surrounded, and started trying to shoot their way out. 

WId2ayT.jpg

Burden proved to be something of a badass though, his shotgun cutting through the lost at close range like butter. 

 

o3f0Ea7.jpgNodle used his heavy caliber weapon to cut them a hole through to the evac site. 

08YkbjA.jpg

While burden pulled out a god damn sword, deciding an odd time to get personal. 

G20JtWd.jpg

Well done, gentlemen. 
zcJvSZz.jpg

While they hadn't managed to cripple the chosen, the intel they did secure was quite useful. 

UgkiKdf.jpg

Phal would be leading the next operation though, bringing the rookie arthos to teach him a few things. 
kXkc7PZ.jpg

Meanwhile, we received a distress call from the reapers. A lost troop and engineer, who'd be happy to aid us if we could pull them out of the city. 
 

NUP1G4C.jpg
The soldier had fallen to the lost, while the VIPs vehicle mounted MG held the lost back, it was running dangerously low on ammunition. 

XgkJZPz.jpg

A few of our greens would be on this mission, but the lost alone aren't too much of a threat. 

 

Uw5enkZ.jpg
Bugger me though, there was a lot of them. 

 

wVk8KlA.jpg

Nodle and burden, fresh from their experiences in asia, were deft hands at cutting down the lost. 

KsiIBEm.jpg

Thurr's nerve started to fail him as his position as rearguard was soon to be overrun by lost troops. 

 

NV1Nxez.jpg
Walrus meanwhile, worked hard to cut his way through to the VIPs position. 
 

5rlougM.jpg

As he did so, the team rapidly fell back towards the extraction zone. The lost were no longer being held back by the VIPs turret, and things were soon to get messy if they did not extract immediately. 

 

aLVY9Zz.jpg

They were cut down by the dozen, but they wouldn't stop coming! 
XlBeSNy.jpg

The avenue was held open by the troops for long enough that the VIP could make it to the extraction zone. 

cSzPYkV.jpg

Nodle volunteered to hold the line while the rest of the troops extracted, before falling back himself. 
 

mjgOySm.jpg

Excellent work, men. 

7ya876G.jpg

Nodle and burden had become excellent fireteam partners, and command had taken notice. 

image.thumb.png.092a6eb2e328ef99c335e618ae395884.png

That's a lotta dead aliens, lads. 

 

ZC3CDOI.jpg
Meanwhile, Commander fergus' insistence that superior weaponry be our top priority was starting to pay off. 

cUMNgxL.jpg

Phal lead Arthos to glory!
 

evCCzGG.jpg

This time, walrus would be leading pona into the darkness of Europe, to try and halt alien progress. 

MCpcsWe.jpg

Our new weaponry was elegant and deadly. Time to remind the xenos why we're still kicking. 

yehOagS.jpg
Commander Fergus needs to get some sleep. Or more tea. I was in the black, and didn't notice Burden was tired. Nonetheless, this is the team that would hit the blacksite. 

s6elkhW.jpg

The team was our best and brightest. And arthos. He'd get good experience! 
 

GmqTx6O.jpg
We'd seen this sort of thing before, but never at this... scale. 

O8m3c7b.jpg

They had some pretty heavy units defending this place, too. This would be no easy task. 

Jv4sue4.jpg

Defensive emplacements, armored walls... This place was a fortress

 

 

UCMdCfR.jpg

Phal decided to remind them why grenades haven't left warfare in 500 years. 

1bRTYq8.jpg

And stormy tried his hand at a little hacking. 

 

 

SOpizpZ.jpg
Burden had a more conventional idea.

4FYUJqU.jpg

Even arthos added a pretty incredible shot! 

65K3u5y.jpg

Look who decided to join us, though. 

W177Vec.jpgLooking through the window, the objective was in sight. 

iKHiqiu.jpg

As forces tried to enter the facility, another patrol rushed to flank the team. 

 

SeWPD4k.jpg

Stormy and phal dealt with the flankers. 

EuoVvhD.jpgWhile the other section was engaged by the base defenses. 

 

6UTegh6.jpg

The assassin tried to get up close and personal with phal, hurling him into a console nearby. 

DzUmNGQ.jpgBurden rushed to his aid. 

PzgxhbE.jpg

(Arthos has the voice of the Red Alert 3 tesla trooper, and the voiceline was '"TRY THIS", which I think is an excellent one for this photo) Arthos decided to give the chosen a bloody nose, to remind it that a DiploCom strike team is not something to be toyed with. 

sbAotcg.jpg

However, arthos caught an overwatch shot for his trouble, something that threw burden into a rage, who had taken a liking to the new blood. His shot went wide, but the bullets made the chosen think twice

kMWjloD.jpg

Phal stood up, immediately to be grabbed by a large snake woman. He is getting too old for this shit. 

VQC47jJ.jpg

The chosen tried to flashbang the main body of the strike team, to limited effectiveness 

 

LjPJMlc.jpgStormy's drone focussed on saving phal, while he gave the chosen a few round burst

w3evWjU.jpg

Burden, dazed and enraged, charged the bitch. He gave her a facefull of buckshot, before her body was teleported away. 

(Alternate text: "It's over assassinkin, I have the high ground!")

 

zbfB6bj.jpg

Meanwhile, Arthos cleared out the remaining ADVENT troopers. 

3NCk28a.jpg

As Burden freed phal, the team regrouped before pushing on to the next room. 

 

xmVXbnT.jpg

Shiny. 

JyxRWrD.jpg

This brought a whole damn alien strike team on our heads. 

phrqRlS.jpg

Evac was only a few hundred meters away, but what a few hundred meters it turned out to be. 

dypQmvk.jpg

Nonetheless, the team managed to extract. 

bTqzh4C.jpg

Fuck you. No further comments, your honour. 

 

U1eElEC.jpg
Almost everyone had sustained wounds, but overall we were doing pretty well. 

MacUso1.jpg

Burden was exhausted, and everyone else was pretty badly wounded. Arthos made corporal for his heroic actions! 

image.thumb.png.3d4949e7a37546e20fb1a145ae1ed724.png

The poster generator decided it was a good day to kick in to high gear! 
 

3I6igCZ.jpg

Burden wasn't doing well though. He needed R&R, badly. A week in the serengeti would do nicely. 

 

kNzztgz.jpg

We were finally starting to tick the hands back.

SzPRKgL.jpg

Things were starting to get ugly. The next deployment was in an egyptian sewer, where a large number of advent monstrosities had been unleashed to flush out a resistance strongpoint. 

7eGE2ap.jpg

The Strike Team was mostly non diplo operatives, who were better suited to the ugly fighting that would ensue, as well as Ordo. 

 

nkLhUXj.jpg

The team destroyed the ADVENT broadcast station before being revealed, but quickly found themselves surrounded by a horde of enormous xenos. 

GXdc6Bd.jpg

The enemy took notice quickly. 

c6I1mdD.jpg

Every one of them was a bullet sponge, and the nearly dozen of them pressed the team quite badly. 

4r8ybCt.jpg

The team stacked bodies like it was going out of style, though. 

XWZ7nsk.jpg

Nonetheless the injuries received were pretty brutal. Forward elements were dangerously close to being overrun. 

KT5r3Os.jpg

Our new templar ally proved to be quite the deadly hand in close quarters though, attracting the attention of several of the beasts at once. 

 

gjFWvRx.jpg

These new weapons they wielded proved to be quite effective. 

jkb3hiX.jpg

Although everyone was battered, 8 of the monstrosities lay dead. 

Xdn4uyk.jpg

Ordo made it to squaddie, though

EFRjhGf.jpg

The infirmary was becoming quite packed. Our manpower supplies were in critical condition. New recruits were needed, and soon. 

Sakbp7V.jpg

Our discoveries meant that we had a new, deadly arsenal, but our defensive technologies left something to be desired.

xtMGj4z.jpg

It's never when we have  enough troops ready, We'd be sending a pretty green troop into the field. 

 

4cHtWx8.jpg
We had to draft our security forces for a troop, in fact.

MrIO1Jy.jpg

Bors and Spank added a taste of experience, but a lack of armour and experience meant this would basically be a suicide mission. Nonetheless, we had to try and fight, no matter the cost. 

 

ExV077U.jpg

The team's landing zone was actually a trap! The troops found themselves engaged immediately, and grenades from xenos heavy infantry badly battered our troops immediately. Not a good start. 

 

cE5qxZ2.jpg

Poor shooting from our fairly green troops compounded the problem. 
79fbYdE.jpg

The aliens were pulling out all the stops. A new, heavy mec made a beeline for Thurr and Spank, in their sniping positions. 

 

BLMEflr.jpg

Thurr managed to kill one, while spank shot wide, but they were still closing the distance. 

 

 

c4SmFiZ.jpg

Bors meanwhile found himself outflanked and out of medical supplies, himself, thurr and spank all badly wounded by this turn of events. 

Onegeld.jpg

Nonetheless, the team had to push on. 

 

JQbLxHR.jpg

Outflanked by alien infiltrators, the team found themselves in another sticky situation, as civilian casualties continued to mount. 

 

pcbSZ1p.jpg

Thurr and spank both tried to shoot in overwatch, but were both unable. 

Nieq67T.jpg

As ADVENT troops unleashed vile sorcery against us! 

 

qFFpjlG.jpg

Bors returned fire, as spank struggled against a psychic power. 

 

rtbPW6I.jpg

Thurr knocked down an alien sniper, buying the team a little time. 

 

X6akMYH.jpg

But spank was still restrained! 

 

NAynwlc.jpg

The MEC killed bors, who had healed himself to full health in one brutal headshot! 

eWWkg6b.jpg

Arthos and Krotos returned fire, knocking down one of the MECs

VzT1EwP.jpg

Then thurr, running across open ground, was caught by alien sniper fire! 
(I don't know what happened here, I moved him to low cover, he burned to death from full health, but the bug kept repeating whenever I reloaded. I'm looking into a solution, but for now Thurr is KIA) 


wsCY0Wv.jpg
Spank still under alien domination, our two rookies were stuck against the last few aliens themselves. Arthos, a corporal, was now the ranking officer. To his credit, he lead a stalwart defense of the final pod of civilians. 

 

Ubs2JfE.jpg
Krotos proved himself to be a valiant fighter, engaging a shapeshifter in melee, blasting the creature to bits. 

JstV2H0.jpg

Thurr was captured, or dead, and Bors had been turned into a chunky salsa. We knew this was going to be a dangerous mission, but it still hurt to see these men killed. Arthos, for his heroism made sergeant. 

 

GleWvDb.jpg

A bit of good news, though. Walrus and Pona had returned from Malaysia, having seriously damaged ADVENT's progress on the Avatar project

SJXfUi0.jpg

And some bad. Apparently someone got better. Bitch. 

 

WdDHEEv.jpg

Walrus and Nodle managed to flush her out a bit, though! 
H3gE1lh.jpg

However, we were dangerously close to running out of engineers. Pona went with our slavic reaper ally to the baltics, to recover a particularly valuable engineer. 

 

jDAI8NR.jpg

And with that out of the way, we had to send in our men to try and extract intel out of an advent field commander. Stormy would lead the team, while Burden was entrusted with the task of punching an energy blade through the bastards face. Some of our more veteran troops would be supporting them, with Krotos given another opportunity to prove himself. 
vG2HZ21.jpg

The team was also ostensibly defending a relay, but that was a tertiary objective. 

 

S9xk9vH.jpg
Therefore, stealth was not an objective. We would be going in loud and proud. They had killed two of ours, and we were going to make sure ADVENT paid the blood price for Thurr and Bors. 

 

jAaKvff.jpg

A squad of sectoids had their break interrupted by an M4 grenade hurled at them, and a hail of gunfire. 

dunAZ4S.jpg

Unfortunately, apparently there were more, and they made it through our overwatch.

 

kh0AssO.jpg

That is a lot of the bastards. 

 

 

heSBtLy.jpg

The firefight was surprisingly protracted.  

oACLUO1.jpg

But the team knew their primary objective. It would be achieved, no matter the cost. 

V05xoIM.jpg

The xenos tried more of their psychic trickery, which didn't get stormy, but finally broke his nerve. 

 

Uj9cerw.jpg
 

Burden wasn't letting anything stop him though. He saw an opening, and began cutting his way through. Krotos supplied covering fire. 

Njb2pyP.jpgMeanwhile, the commander made his move. 

 

ZiDVEV9.jpg

Walrus rushed the commanders guards. 

 

 

u1gD6h3.jpg

Arthos found himself in a dangerous position. 

 

 

mf1uH04.jpg

The commander seemed to focus his forces on the right flank. 

fO7Tt8w.jpg

And burden saw his opening. Burn, you son of a bitch. 

MX5yNpW.jpg

Apparently we pissed off the aliens norton antivirus, though. 

v7j9Req.jpg

"Anyone paying attention to the giant monster that just appeared 15 feet from me? No, just me? Alright, I guess I'll deal with this then" -Arthos, probably

2iICJJl.jpg

Apparently burden was, as he ran to Arthos aid. The glorified mcafee tried to summon a psychic rift, but it only succeeded in clearing itself out. 

 

 

s8N30jC.jpg

Which set off a pyro troopers backpack, incinerating the remaining advent forces. I think I know why we're going to win. 

 

u1sHARo.jpg

One more shapeshifter took a swing at Burden. 

KXDYwgH.jpg

Does this look like a man you want to fail to kill, though? 

jlnEnHe.jpg

Walrus finished it off with his secret technique, 'disappearing machete'

Good work, gentlemen.

For his above and beyond service, Burden went to Lieutenant.

The project needed to make the jump out to South East Asia, but in order to do so it would need the supplies to cross the americas. 

 

ORBoRQQ.jpg

Resistance operatives had bombed a train, so Diplocom forces would move in, mop up the defenders and then ship everything home. Hopefully, an easy smash-and-grab. 

 

IhPGQO4.jpg

...or not. 

 

GJIS1KR.jpg

Well, if we have the drop, may as well use it. 

 

bIm9FXn.jpg

ADVENT decided that we didn't have ridiculous enough odds. A new chosen decided to make his presence known. 

ubVpeaC.jpg

The chosen had not decided to join the firefight though, so we used the high ground to our immense advantage. 
 

JmxqLvh.jpg
We discovered a construct, which phal immediately tried to blow up. It was some kind of green, cybernetic thing? 
 

 

QopkNIP.jpg

This appeared to piss it off, and it immediately knocked phal unconscious, and made what can only be described as 'an evil clone'. Given that phal is quebecois, I was surprised they could make anything more inherently evil, but I suppose this goes to show the hideous and insidious evil that the aliens are capable. 

 

 

QuAQgst.jpg

For good news, though, Arthos managed to hack an ADVENT MEC for our own use. 
 

6SQ5IJa.jpg

Which advent tried to destroy using explosives. Good work, idiots 

 


gBMHIqy.jpg

Spank decided to end this obnoxious tron cosplayer. 

5n1n8Ya.jpg

Which also revealed that phal was not dead! Thank god. 

 

J6KwPbv.jpg
This also gave spank another shot, which he promptly whiffed. Can't win em all, I guess. 

 

 

 

Sl7OdfL.jpg

Apparently being knocked unconscious doesn't affect your aim, as phal drove back the swarm of lost into ADVENT's troops. 

 

 

XpI4lN3.jpg

The chosen finally decided to join the fight, revealing that he had the power to reanimate dead bodies. Great. Just great. 

 

5rL1IAb.jpg

Apparently they went down pretty easily, but they also exploded when they died. This mission just keeps getting better and better.

J1tAs6m.jpg

The explosions called another lost swarm. 

 

 

jIYCunj.jpg

The surviving ADVENT troops decided to try and shoot at us, instead of the zombies that were ripping them apart. Never fail to impress me. 

 

 

rKe2h92.jpg

Pona drove most of them off, while the rest of the team focused on ADVENT. 

 

 

xJwLhWI.jpg

After an absolute odyssey of a firefight, the last of ADVENT's troops had been defeated. The warlock remained, hiding on the other side of the map, content to continue summoning more minions. Excellent. 

 

BYa5vGt.jpg

"You're not even hurting me! This is just taking more of my time and bullets!" -Commander Fergus, cursing the name of the Warlock 

 

shw5YFx.jpg


More explosions meant more of the lost. Something tells me that Verdun is going to seem like a cakewalk when we're done here. 

 

NeSLUh0.jpg

The team took up a tight formation, so that they could move and gun down the lost. 
pfoV9UW.jpg

Your death is going to be painful, you frustrating cunt

 

 

4Jt7Axw.jpg

The fireteam advanced, wading through bodies as they gunned down more and more of the lost and the reanimated jihadist bodies. 

 

 

jWnQir8.jpg

Dragunova scouted ahead, while the rest of the team followed behind. 

MR2js84.jpg

Finally, we spotted the bastard. He couldn't see our team yet, as he could not see Dragunova's position. Spank drew up a sight picture. 

9CEhLA1.jpg

 As the 50 mm Anti-Materiel round smashed into his torso, he decided to monologue instead of you know, re-positioning. 

 

 

Vpklalx.jpg

This really agitated the commander, who order Dragunova to drop her stealth and blast him in the back of the head before he could finish talking. 

 

AkgRq9e.jpg

Unfortunately this allowed him to summon bodyguards, but it wouldn't matter. Blood was in the water. 

 

 

jX4oZkV.jpg

Pona had been getting a little too cheeki-breeki with the vodka, apparently. 
 

6OCrzL0.jpg

But the most impressive medium sized stone in human history stopped the chosen's plasma rifle. 

qH0UGjh.jpg

However, this gave Phal an opening, who unloaded an entire drum into the bastards face. Walk that one off, you smug cunt. 

 

XRpF4KV.jpg

Apparently it wasn't quite enough to kill him, but it certainly knocked him down a peg

 

X6eA6WZ.jpg

51 bloody enemies. 5 man section. You do the math. 

 

 

6Z3KCFk.jpg

PROMOTIONS FOR EVERYBODY! 

 

pQFXr2j.jpg

Spank and Phal had proven to work quite well together in the field.

 

 

3bL1wyT.jpg

Nodle got back from his sergeant's course. 

 

Oc5gFWn.jpg

Phal would lead another team to locate the chosen's stronghold. 

 

3M4meGM.jpg

Oh thank fuck. Diplocom is starving for scientists since chief finances officer Abdel decided we should let the free market decide, and we've been struggling to keep up with ADVENT's developments. 

 

 

E2kPP4p.jpg

As we landed in Argentina, we were horrified to discover that A: We were in argentina, and B: that a new alien operative was operating in the area. 

 

 

LHYhghG.jpg

As we were making contact with the the local resistance, we had to redeploy to chile to rescue a scientist. Who we would not give back to chilean resistance because we really needed him. 

7niZLxF.jpg

A crack team was going in, because we really needed a scientist. 

 

 

I8eHXiu.jpg

With a name like that, there's no way he's Chilean anyway 

r6SpbOE.jpg

Well at least this one isn't invisible. 

 

 

9V0S4Vv.jpg

We were initially engaged by regular alien forces though. Who managed a glancing blow on Arthos, but otherwise nothing. 

 

RTgYLtm.jpg

It proved to be an unwise career move for the aliens. 

 

 

7boGF4H.jpg

Burden ran up, dispatching another in close quarters. 

 

 

qN9jjyT.jpg
Before nodle hurled him an up, so he could run down to remind the snake why it shouldn't have tried to get uppity with the apex species of this planet. 

Iq5aXc2.jpg

Alright well it seemed to ignore the central point of the message. 

WTF9I4F.jpg

Spank was about to reinforce the point, before he noticed a thing red line pointing between his eyes. 

...Oh dear. 

 

XDrorhg.jpg

Burden made a run for the roof, to secure the landing zone, so we could get out of here.

TYt2b9k.jpg

An advent trooper went straight up TR-8R on him. 

joHS5dQ.jpg

Spank reminded the star of six seconds why it's called an anti-materiel rifle. 

 

 

J1YZISb.jpg

Pona put a magazine in the other one, in case he got any ideas. 
0ecT3Ko.jpg

7SegFIU.jpg

Stormy introduced the last remaining trooper to the concept of the three round burst. 

F4MEYTU.jpg

 

Spank caught a sleep dart for his trouble, and although Nodle woke him up, the two still had to get out of the sniper alley they were trapped in. 

 

 

VQtFJDF.jpg

The alien decided to use his incredible psychic powers to inflict less damage than an issued assault rifle. 

 

 

VRuwZWK.jpg
Spank reminded the alien why gunslinger is actually a pretty good skill tree. 

0naPwBC.jpg

Stormy gave an energy shield to nodle while he suppressed the sniper, as he and Spank made their retreat. 

M1BTikG.jpg

The alien flashbanged them. Bastard. Pona ran up to try and save them. 

28kiphi.jpg

"Omae wa mo shindeiru" -Burden, probably. 

 

oBdelH9.jpg

As Nodle filled his body with half a drum just to make sure. 

jbQ82K9.jpg

Honestly I was unimpressed. That was the best sniper ADVENT has? 

9JnmYwB.jpg

The Scientist was 'convinced' to join our ranks. 
FzyQWsU.jpg

He helped us make a new development. Which suddenly explained why he was hiding out in south america. If we bring him to europe, we're all going to be tried in geneva. 

 

 

ZNmkJxa.jpg

Phal reported success, once again. 

 

3R3xebo.jpg

The assassin tried to carbomb me! Doesn't she know I'm ethnically irish? I have a supernatural sense for vehicle based explosives. 

ssXJ8cB.jpg

Burden and Nodles bond had advanced to the point where the reapers offered to train them as a specialized fireteam. 

 

 

cyRFcAd.jpg

The ADVENT had a particularly nasty little tactic planned, and it needed to be stopped. The war never stops, unfortunately. 

 

 

xOF2GHX.jpg

We needed a troop to make it to major in order for us to finally kill the assassin, and stormy looked like our best option. 

 

37R9Wcb.jpgWe managed to drop the team right in front of the objective, so they moved to take solid, covered positions immediately.

IgbRV2w.jpg

We opened by dropping an advent squad through a roof. It's a favoured tactic of Diplocom. 

pbH6tm6.jpg

Our psychic ally rushed forward, trying to make it to the device. 

 

dFVFJ1y.jpg

I'm pretty sure he's some kind of diploer though, given how hard he's trying to cosplay the protoss. 

 

CECpv7b.jpg

A codex tried to open the warp on top of us, but otherwise the alien resistance was pretty minimal. Our opening blow had been pretty effective.

Episode 5: Part 2 because apparently that was too many images. 

U0ZZ6g3.jpg

The aliens mildy wounded spank when we moved down, but we were otherwise unperturbed. 

HLGB5ed.jpg

Stormy ended up placing the explosives, so his chances at a promotion were unfortunately pretty low. 

mmENByi.jpg

This whole 'untapped psychic potential of the human mind thing' is pretty sweet, no two ways about it. 

 

IexMms9.jpg

Meanwhile, the other fireteam encountered another alien patrol. 

 

 

lDtXLmO.jpg

Well ADVENT just got footage of us using acid against humans, so we're definitely not going to do super great once this war is over. 

 

ofjPMQu.jpg

Alright, let's get out of here. Hopefully the acid will melt away the evidence. 

9XWPlkz.jpg

Some light wounds, but otherwise a succesful operation. No promotions, unfortunately. 

AX0sib1.jpg

Ah, very good. 

 

A5wQVka.jpg
I didn't take any pictures, but walrus had acquired so many variants of PTSD that encountering the enemy basically sent him into a team killing rage. He's in therapy right now. 

 

MTMQcZL.jpg

Burden made captain, and his bond with nodle was stronger than steel now. 

 

UojJxkE.jpg

Given that we couldn't finish off the assassin quite yet, damn it that Warlock was really annoying. 

 

Rgrbr17.jpg

Before we went to australia to it the blacksite, Diplocom recruited a team of south american 'german emigres' who knew the ins-and-outs of an authoritarian state. 

 

 

8oSjEfT.jpg

The AVATAR progress had actually made several huge leaps, so time was somewhat of the essence. 

 

uWy8ClK.jpg

But damn it, we can't just let people die.

 

KozMY9j.jpg

The team landed into Berserkers, which is one hell of a welcome. 

mf7OAm5.jpg

The resistance was locked in a firefight against a large number of mutons, the most we had seen deployed to date. 

sAIzcFD.jpg

A seriously large number. 

 

0HxWJfe.jpg
The team made a beeline for the two main resistance strongpoints, firing all the way. 

P8JxFn8.jpg

Spank made a shot through an opaque fire, which probably means the team owes him a beer. 

 

S0nu1eX.jpg

Even with the resistance cutting them down, the number of berserkers was seriously pressing our ability to keep the civilians alive. 

 

WHyvpHE.jpg

Although casualties had mounted, the team managed to gun down the last few before the haven was considered folding. 

kMTjalh.jpg

The team left as quickly as they arrived, as they were needed in 3 days when the blacksite was discovered.

 G39nwTv.jpg

Before we hit it, the commander saw it prudent to send the three allied operatives on a team building exercise. Hopefully this would stop their incessant whining and complaining about each other.

A NEW MISSION HAS ARRIVED, BUT IT IS ONE THAT REQUIRES FACES YET UNKOWN TO ADVENT. YOU, RANDOM CITIZEN, COULD BE THE NEXT TO SUPPLY THE ARMY OF DIPLOCOM WITH THE STRENGTH TO STRIKE BACK AGAINST THE HATED XENO!

Except the part where I died this project has been of exceptional quality. You've improved in narrative and screenshot. Good job.
