Good grief. I think a Nazi posthumously saved my life today.

I'm curious to see how a beer becomes a plot point in this situation.

I KILLED US ALL I'M SORRY

Image

A-

AHAH!

We're all fine.

I-I guess we picked really good cover? The landing gear absorbed the blast for Ziiro, and the upward slope of the hill shielded everyone else.

Image

Friday is not pleased. She's out of range, so she drops straight to the ground like an amazon and huffs it into the smoke.

Image

She aims to the sky and lets fly.

Image

Direct hit BABY

Not a kill, but I'm guessing this guy is close to dead.

Back by the hill, everyone moves forward, putting their back to the larger hump to the south.

Image

Grath spies someone up top taking reactions shots at the group, so he World War 1-style charges up the hill.

Image

HAHH

That felt good.

Image

A turn later, down on tinyhill™, Mongrel and Defenestration take shots at a guy Friday put an arrow through, currently making his way through the smoke.

Image

Confederate Eagle drops him but good.

A turn passes without anyone getting hit.

Friday pulls out another arrow.

Image

Image

One guy left.

Esperath takes point on the last smuggler.

Image

SHIT

Out of energy.

Esper's standing right in front of an armed enemy with his d... vagina in one hand and a cold beer in the other.

Oh! Beer!

Esperath takes a refreshing, thoughtful swig, replenishing a splash of morale and energy in the infinite space between seconds.

He moves closer with a skip and a swagger in his step.

Image

And he immediately gets shot!

Twice!

Image

Hoo boy.

Grath slides down the hill, cutlass at the ready.

Image

WHAKACHAHHH HAKCHACHA WEEEEEEEEEEEEEEOOOOOO

yeah we're clear

Oooh, not a bad haul!

One hostage, one "slave AI," a ship engine and a buncha steel/hellerium.

Image

Good gains for Grath, Geo, Smiler, Fen, Buge (formerly Stush), Mongrel, Ziiro, and Friday.

Image

Some solid weapons, too. Finally got more sniper rifle rounds.

Image

Grath gets promoted to Boss Gal.

Image

Back home, Esper's gonna need a little time to sleep off those two rounds to the gut.

Francios is close to healed, though!

Image

Brainers figure out how to make most kinds of ammunition, saving us the hassle of retrieving them or buying them from the black market.

Image

I get them started on figuring out what the hell we're supposed to do with this data disc manufacturing just decrypted.

yeah, at that rate, you may as well just sack me and replace me with a new swabbie. I didn't get in a single hit, so it's not like my character leveled up at all.

I don't think he's dead. I think you just left his drunk, bleeding ass behind.

Though I appreciate that his gravestone highlights how he "died" over who he actually is.

and if i'm not gonna have any clothes then i want a bigger machinegun

Oh he's alive - anyone that's alive by the end of the mission gets taken back to the base - he's just gonna be in the recovery drunk tank for like two months.

I'll probably just hire a new Esperath and rename this wounded clod after somebody else.

I say retire him to the front office and hire Esperath's twin brother sister, Haterpes.

GOD

DAMMIT

Of course this happens before our latest shipment comes in. We're understaffed and most of our usual weapons don't have ammo.

Image

Welp, nothing to do but get to it.

I'm curious what we get by staying on the good side of the mutant civilian population, since this'll be our second pogrom a-thwartin'. I know we got a good finance boost in the last monthly finance check, so, I guess that's our incentive?

(I may just start skipping these in the LP depending on how painless they are)

Image

We get there by day, which helps a lot since we can see absolutely everything on the map with line of sight.

Image

Zaratustra's cannon ball shipment hasn't come in yet, so he takes a knife too.

Image

Since Mazian and Francios are still on the mend, Frocto's gonna take a first aid satchel with him.

Image

Kazz wrote:and if i'm not gonna have any clothes then i want a bigger machinegun

Kazz gets the biggest weapon we have at the moment, which is a fucking flamethrower. I have no idea how this thing is gonna work in the X-Com engine.

Image

The AK's giving only okay damage, so, Sharkey's gonna give the X-Bow a shot. Who knows, might be even better than the bow and arrow.

Image

Thad has two more spears in his speargun, so he kinda wants to finish them off before never using the thing again. As a backup, he slings a grenade launcher over his shoulder, with an incendiary and a smoke grenade for the belt.

Image

Büge FINALLY gets on a mission. The resident chainsaw is being used by Frocto at the moment, so she takes Smiler's shotgun instead. Figure while Smiler's still resting up, she can get some kills and up her carrying capacity.

Image

Defenestration ditches the laser pistol for the officer's luger we pulled off of the nazi leader in our first pogrom. Curious as to how good it'll be.

Okay.

Image

Parrot pops out for a quick glance around the landing zone.

Image

Looking pretty clear near the #FinalFighter. Should buy us enough time to get some cover.

Image

HM.

Image

Thad drops out, kneels, and plugs him in the chest with a harpoon, doing apparently zero damage!

Image

Grath cuts him down proper with pirate steel.

(Also, note the SS blueshirt on the left)

Image

Frocto, Kazz, Ziiro, Esperath, Defenestration, and Sharkey fan out to the north.

Buge, Mongrel, Friday, and Zaratustra set up to the south.

Image

Friday leads Team Friday down a nearby alley, noticing an SS in the adjacent garden space.

Image

Zara falls back, fires, and misses, retreating behind the fence sheepishly to reload.

Image

Mongrel follows, taking a point-blank shot with his fancy new desert eagle.

Image

Image

Image

Buge do not fuck this up.

Image

THAT'S WHAT I'M TALKING ABOUT
