-----TRANSMISSION INTERCEPTED------


-Decoding.........MESSAGE BEGINS:

SUBJECT: Chigusa Board of Directors 2nd Quarter Meeting Recorded Minutes/Operating Orders
RECIPIENT: Captain Jason Calloway,  Commanding Officer C.C.S.(Chigusa Commerce Ship) "Prometheus"
CLASSIFICATION: Ultra Violet
RECORDED MINUTES:
Lady Chigusa: "This meeting of the Chigusa Corporation's Board of Directors is hereby called back into order after the previous recess of 20 minutes. All those present please speak their name and position."
Mrs. Carter Angela Carter, Sales and Public Relations Manager
Mr. Wilkes Michale Wilkes, Head of Security Concepts
Dr. Marcellmo Dr. Ilijah Marcellmo, Prometheus project leader
Mr. Jones Richard Jones, Vice President
Lady Chigusa: Stephanie Chigusa, Majority Stock holder, CEO, and head of The Board of Directors. *Softly claps hands together once* Alright now that that's out of the way lets get to business. As I'm sure you all know the main items on our agenda are the status of the Prometheus project, our relations with our primary buyer the U.S. military, and Operation 314 which is scheduled to take place during this quarter. I'd like a status update starting with Prometheus.
Dr. Marcellmo *Clears Throat* As you all know the Prometheus project is part of our plan to replace the Weyland-Yutani as the United States' number one weapons manufacturer by providing a level of quality that W-Y will have no chance of competing with. That having been said, the project was originally slated for completion roughly a year from now. But thanks to a major breakthrough, the specifics of which are in the briefings my office dispatched to each of you, I am very pleased to announce that Project Prometheus is in its final completion stages and all of it's elements, products, and technology will be ready for field testing by this time next week.
All:*Light Applause*
Lady Chigusa: *Applause ends* That's excellent news Lisa, now lets hear about our relations with the military.
Mrs. Carter Sadly we still trail W-Y in all areas of conventional military arms sales, their close relation to the Colonial Marines gives them a strong edge when it comes to bidding for contracts. But our slow introduction of some of our lower end Prometheus tech has shortened the gap considerably. Even Weyland himself can't keep the military's top brass from watering at the mouth over the things we've shown them so far.
Mr. Wilkes And that's not to mention the fact that the Army is nowhere near as under Weyland's thumb as the Marines. I've had their representative....*Ruffles through papers*....General Barnes in my office at least once a week ever since we first unveiled the Thermite-Plasma remix for the M240
Mr. Jones That brings us to Operation 314 if I'm correct, if you don't mind Stephanie I'd like to take this one...I've been micromanaging this for quite some time and I'm very eager to begin.
Lady Chigusa: That's perfectly fine Dick the floor is yours
Mr. Jones Alright, as I'm sure everyone here knows all of our sources have been pointing to the fact that Weyland hasn't simply been sitting on his hands and resting on the lead he's been able to develop over us. For a long time now we've known that they're working on something big. We just never knew what...but now we do, and more importantly we know where their primary research facility is. Our intelligence suggest that if they manage to complete their research and achieve successful results it may be enough to render the entire Prometheus line moot. Operation 314 will involve the elimination of Weyland-Yutani's primary research facility, and will pave the way for the toppling of their monopoly over sales to not only the U.S. Army but also the Colonial Marines.
Mrs. Carter: But that would bring us into open conflict with Weyland-Yutani, which as we all know is pretty much synonymous with entering into conflict with the Colonial Marines...even if we were able to win such a conflict it would be a Public Relations nightmare...A civilian corporation engaging military troops, our sales would plummet, not to mention our stocks!
Mr. Wilkes:  Not necessarily, as I said before I've been in very close contact with the U.S. Army's representatives and I've learned that while the Marines are very much Karl Weyland's attack dog, the Army is not and it's Army's top generals would be more than willing to help us....sweep the whole thing under the rug so long as we can promise them near exclusive rights to some of our more 'interesting' Prometheus weapons. In addition to this I've learned that quite a few of the Marine High Command don't like being under Weyland's thumb either and would be more than willing to simply forgive and forget any incidents that occurred in the process of them getting out from under said thumb. But.....neither the Army or the Marines are willing to make such moves without proof that our Prometheus tech will live up to the hype.
Lady Chigusa: And that means real combat data, not simulations
Mr. Jones: Which is exactly what Operation 314 will give us, not only against Weyland-Yutani's mercenary security teams but against the actual military. If we succeed we'll have crippled W-Y's next big move and proven the superiority of our product in the same stroke. So the question is can we do it?
Mr. Wilkes: I can get us the manpower to easily beat what ever W/Y has at their research base but we'll need something more to stop the Marines
Dr. Marcellmo You'll have it
Lady Chigusa: Very well, then I call a vote of go or no go on the activation of Operation 314 starting with Dick, going around the table and ending with myself.
Mr. Jones: Go
Mr. Wilkes: Go
Dr. Marcellmo: Go
Mrs. Carter: Go
Lady Chigusa: Go
ORDERS:
Captain Jason Calloway, with the full authorization of The Board of Directors you are hereby ordered to make for Galena-357 at the Prometheus's best speed. There you will take on your assigned cargo and proceed at best speed to Weyland-Yutani Corp. Planet LV-6329 and assist Chigusa Security Concepts Division personnel in any way needed. Failure to follow these orders will result in immediate termination of contract, loss of corporate shares, legal prosecution for violation of contract, and placement on the Chigusa Corporation's black list.

That is all.

OOC

Ok, so as some may remember I GM'd a previous Aliens/Predator verse game last year. And that game was quite fun. Ever since it ended I've toyed with the idea of restarting it/creating another Alien/Predator game... This is my idea for just such a role play, I've been working on it/fine tuning/developing the plot/expanding the character options for quite a long time. So I should have all of the kinks worked out (puntastic!). This game while similar to the previous one will have a very different plot. But just like the old one it will tell the story of a single platoon of marines. Specifically the 1st(Player Characters), 2nd(NPCs), and possibly the 3rd(Player characters should enough interest be shown) squads of the platoon, as they first attempt to complete their mission, and later simply attempt to survive. It will ideally be filled with action, suspense, interpersonal interaction, and fun!

 I’ll be playing the part of the world around them, as well as that of the Alien Hive and other antagonists, I’m looking for some people to play the marines, and possibly Predators and/or other special characters that I may decide to allow as player characters rather than NPCs.  The game will be mildly systemic in that each player will have to first choose what weapons and equipment his/her marine carries. In addition to this the system will be used to determine when/if an alien attack is able to wound one of the marines, when/if random good and (or) bad events occur, and how well the squad does when attacking enemies and/or an important location,  other than these things the game will be freeform. Hopefully this will apple to many people because it leaves room for creativity, as well as allows for unpredictability/fairness.  So if you’re still interested the character list, character sheet, a stats explanation, a weapons/equipment list and system explanation are as follows.



THE SYSTEM:

First off I’ll explain when/how the system will be used, as well as how it will work. There will be three different systems used in the game, each one is original and each one is a simple as I can make them while taking everything into account.

Normal Combat: The system will be used to determine how effective the marines are at killing their foe, as well as how effective the Aliens are at attacking the marines. Here is a simple scenario for example a marine is walking down a hall way he/she encounters an Alien and opens fire the Alien runs to attack the marine the marine manages to shoot the Alien in the head and the Alien dies without harming him/her.  Post wise this is how it would happen, the marine’s player makes a post saying that he/she is walking down a hall way, I would make a post describing the alien getting ready to attack, the system would be used to tell if the marine spots the alien and if he is able to kill it or if it isn’t his lucky day and he gets wounded/has to run/possibly worse. As far as our marine player is concerned the game is essentially freeform with them simply posting using statements such as "My character shoots at the alien aiming for its head" rather than "My character shoots the alien in the head." This allows me to control the action from behind the scenes by being the one to use statements such as "the bullets hit the alien" or "The bullets miss the alien" without bogging down the players with dice rolls, stat comparisons, ect. Ideally this allows for both the player and myself getting to add a bit of creativity without the normal problems of freeform combat games(God modding, disputable outcomes, ect) or the problems of a system game (long amounts of rolling and stat comparison work for relatively small amounts of posts._)



If there is interest and this role play gets off the ground I will be posting up 3 threads in the Extreme Small Groups forum, the first will be the I.C. thread where the story will take place, the second will be an O.O.C thread which will….well be the O.O.C. communication place, the 3rd thread will be for lack of a better way to put it, a Xenopedia, it will contain everything that the marine characters ‘know’ about the aliens they encounter including known stats ect ect, this will be to help the players tell what they are up against, as well as for fun. So far I have purposefully left the system’s explanation rather vague, if there is interest in it, I will explain it in depth giving examples for each situation, and posting up a ‘dress rehearsal’ of how the system will work at different points in time

Name:

Age:

Position in platoon/rank:(Squad Leader, Sargent, Squad Member, ect)

Personal history:

Stats Before Equipment:

Kit:

Stats After Equipment:



Stats Explained:

Each player gets 50 points to use as he or she sees fit.  The stats start at 0 each and the minmum score for each stat is 3(before equipment), and the max is 10(after equipment) the max for Health is 20, and the max for everything else is 10 I.E. you can have a health of 11 but not an attack of 11. The only exception is Ranged Attack, which does not use stat points, it is determined by your equipment only. If a stat is brought lower than 3 after counting for equipment (I.E. a piece of heavy armor brings your agility to 2) that's ok, though having any stat that low is inadvisable.
 
Health: How many points of damage you can take

Attack:  How much damage you’ll do in hand to hand combat

Ranged Attack: How much ranged firepower you have (does not use stat points, is determined by adding the ranged firepower bonus of your weapons/kit)

Accuracy: How likely you are to hit

Agility: How likely you are to avoid an attack/outrun what’s chasing you

Intelligence: How much more likely you make it for your team to succeed, how likely you are to make certain machines work.

Defense: If hit, how much of the damage is not taken to your actual health

Perception: How likely you are to notice what’s creeping in the shadows, how likely you are to see a trap before it is sprung.

Stealth: How likely you are to avoid being detected

Luck: If good or bad things just seem to happen to you, slightly effects all other stats, effects how likely your team is to succeed.



Weapons/Equipment:

Each player gets 20 kit points to use however he/she pleases, for the sake of simplicity we will assume that ammo is not a factor/leave its existence and running out to our own freeform devices. Each entry below will have a short description of what it is, the amount of kit points it costs, and how it effects your character’s stats. Also some weapons and equipment are exclusive to a specific character slot, for example it wouldn’t make much sense for anyone but the smart gunner to actually have a smart gun.

Universal weapons and equipment
These Items can be chosen by any member of the squads and represent standardized kit that every marine would have access to and be trained to use.
Combat Knife:

Description: Blades, in one form or another have been used by men and women for thousands of years, this primitive weapon is still in use within the USMC which prides itself on training marines who are not only expert shots, but excellent hand to hand combatants. A combat knife is standard issue to every marine both for its usefulness in combat, and as a simple tool.

Effect: +1  Attack


Cost:1





M4A3 Pistol:

Description: The USMC’s standard issue sidearm, the M4A3 fires 9mm rounds, and possesses an impressive level of accuracy, albeit at the sacrifice of stopping power. Marines are advised to use the M4A3 only on ‘soft targets’ or as a weapon of last resort should their heavier armaments be exhausted. A common joke amongst Marine grunts about the M4A3 being that the only way to really put down a target with it is to score a head shot….and even then you may have to do it twice just to be sure.
Effect: +1 Attack, +1 Accuracy

Cost:2


AP Rounds(Requires Pistol):

Description: Many marines find their M4A3 lacking in the ability to penetrate its target’s defenses, with this in mind many arms manufacturers have taken to producing alternate forms of ammunition to be sold privately to the marines, the most popular is the armor piercing round, replacing the standard 9mm round with a uranium tipped round more capable of penetrating most  light armors.

Effect: +1 Ranged Attack

Cost:1


Fragmentation Grenade:

Description: A standard grenade, designed to explode 3 seconds after its pin has been pulled, showering the immediate area with high speed, razor sharp shrapnel. Marines are encouraged to use grenades when large numbers of enemies are grouped together.

Effect: +1 to Ranged Attack, +1 Luck, -1 Stealth
Cost:3


Flame Grenade:

Description: A non-standard grenade, designed to explode 3 seconds after its pin has been pulled, blanketing the immediate area with flames. Marines are encouraged to use grenades when large numbers of enemies are grouped together, as well as to provide cover for an escape, or keep an advancing enemy at bay.

Effect: -1 Agility to enemies
 
Cost:3


M41A Pulse Rifle:

Description: The standard USMC firearm, it is as much a symbol of mankind’s mastery of technology and warfare as it is a deadly weapon, the M41A is capable of firing in either semi-automatic, 3 round burst, or full auto modes. It fires the standard high velocity armor piercing round, and is capable of supporting multiple modifications. It is light, compact, easy to use, and even easier to maintain, the only thing that’s hard to do is break it. Every marine must qualify with the M41A before completing their training to insure that, should the need arise any member of the USMC is able to pick up a rifle and join the fight.

Effect: + 3 Ranged Attack,

Cost: 5



Under slung grenade launcher (Requires Pulse Rifle):

Description:  An under slung grenade launcher for the M41A Pulse Rifle, it fires shaped charge grenades at long range giving the average marine a way to effectively eliminate heavily armored opponents. 

Effect: + 2 Ranged Attack, -1 Stealth

Cost:3


Side Mounted Flame Caster: (Requires Pulse Rifle):

Description:  An side mounted light flame thrower for the M41A Pulse Rifle, it is capable of projecting a small gout of flame at any close range target in bursts of 3 seconds, any longer is unadvised due to the possibly of overheating, it is in no way a replacement for the M240B, as it is  lacking in range and power by comparison to the USMC’s flame thrower. In addition to this, the standard infantry man's armor lacks the heat shielding of the flamethrower man's "Ape Suit" and prolonged exposure to the heat and light created by the flame caster has been known to have negative effects on the senses of sight and touch.

Effect: + 2  Attack, -1 Perception

Cost:3




M33 Shotgun:

Description:  The M33 is a pump action shotgun, designed for use in close quarters and urban settings, it is made to offer the greatest amount of punching power while remaining as compact and manageable as possible, it is somewhat less effective at range due to the large spread of its shot as a result of its shortened barrel.   

Effect: + 3  Attack, -1 Ranged Attack

Cost:2



Full Auto(Requires Shotgun):

Description:  Replacing the M33's pump action with a fully automatic loading system, the M33 is now capable of fully automatic firing, allowing it's user to literally paint an area with firepower. The recoil on a fully automatic M33 is many times stronger than that of the standard shotgun, giving it the nickname "the mule" amongst weapon's manufacturers with regards to its kick. 

Effect: + 2 Attack, -1 Accuracy

Cost:3


M10 Pattern Ballistic Armor:

Description:  The current model of body armor issued to USMC marines consists of a chest and back plate, in addition to a helmet, it is designed to effectively stop  small arms fire, as well as rifle fire, but is outclassed when pitted against larger caliber weapons.

Effect:+ 1 Health +2  Defense,

Cost:1


M12 Pattern Advanced Personal Armor:

Description:  The current model of body armor issued to USMC marines consists of a chest and back plate, in addition to a helmet, it is designed to effectively stop small arms fire, as well as rifle fire, but is outclassed when pitted against larger caliber weapons, in an effort to correct this problem the M12 Advanced Armor is in development, sporting a thicker layer of protection, as well as chemical resistance treatments for protection against enemy who choose to ignore conventional rules of combat.

Effect:+ 1 Health +3 Defense, Defense stat is immune to Acid based attacks.

Cost:2







XV35 Motion Tracker:

Description:  An optional motion sensor. By detecting micro changes in air density the XV35 is able to sense movement in every direction regardless of where it is pointed. It relays this information to its user through an attached screen, as well as through a series of mechanical beeps, which grow louder and closer together as the movement draws nearer.

Effect:+ 2 Perception, -1 Stealth,

Cost:1





M111 Combat Helmet:

Description:  A stronger combat helmet, than the standard issue, the M111 possesses a radio transmitter and receiver, and is also capable of supporting a side mounted camera.   

Effect: +1 Defense, +1 Intelligence when deciding the outcome of a major event, Allows its user to communicate with any member of the platoon who also possesses radio equipment. Regardless of location as long as there is nothing jamming the signal. 

Cost:1

Cost:1


MS3 Medical Kit:

Effect: +2 Health
 

Cost:2


Smoke Grenade

Description: A non-standard grenade, designed to activate 3 seconds after its pin has been pulled, blanketing the immediate area with a thick cloud of smoke. Marines are encouraged to use grenades when large numbers of enemies are grouped together, as well as to provide cover for an escape, or keep an advancing enemy at bay.

Effect: -1 Perception to enemies, +1 Stealth
 
Cost:3



Squad Leader Exclusive Equipment


M557 APC:

Description:  The APC is the primary driving ground vehicle used by the USCM. It has one front mounted twin Gatling turret, and one top mounted twin cannon. The APC has a top speed of 50 miles per hour. It is capable of single-handedly offering heavy fire support to USMC personnel, but also has a habit of becoming a target for any enemies in the area.

Effect: +5 Defense when in use, +4 Ranged Attack when in use, +4 Perception when in use,  +3 Intelligence when in use, -6 Stealth when in use, cannot be used within hallways/small rooms/anyplace it wouldn't fit,  Allows its user to communicate with any member of the platoon who also possesses radio equipment regardless of location as long as there is nothing jamming the signal.


Cost:5


M579 'Daisy Cutter'(Requires APC)
When extreme firefights are expected or when requested by the squad's leader, a 20mm quad Gatling system can be added to the M557 APC's already formidable weaponry. The turret is controlled by a highly accurate multi-spectrum sensor and placed parallel to the APC's primary turret. Despite mild international outrage at the use of anti-aircraft weapons in a ground role. The M579's impressive field results have encouraged Marine Command to turn a blind ear and def eye to the negative publicity.

Effect: +6 Ranged attack vs human sized targets

Cost: 5

Door Guns(Requires APC)
There are many ways to turn the M557 APC into a 'gunship' and once such method is to deploy limited traverse door guns at each of the vehicle's three entrances (one on each side and one rear) these weapons are simply heavy machine guns and harnesses built into the APC's interior in order to allow its passengers to fire from the doors while the vehicle is either moving or stationary.

Effect: +3 Ranged Attack per manned weapon(total of +9), requires a player character or npc to actively man the weapons or there is no effect.

Cost: 2


L7 Personal Computer:

Description:  A high speed, compact, personal computer designed to offer the command and control capabilities of the M557 APC, without the APC’s high profile.  The computer is capable of providing radio contact with all members of the platoon, tracking each platoon member’s movements, and analyzing any machine or deceased organic specimen , programs allowing it to analyze living organisms are currently said to be in development.

Effect: Allows Platoon Leader to fire a single AURORA blast per encounter with hostiles, this blast is capable of instantly killing a single target of human size or smaller.

Cost:2

M190 Key Personnel Body Armor(Replaces All Other Armor If Equiped):    

Description:  Despite accusations of being ‘cold’, ‘inhuman’, and ‘heartless’ the USMC openly acknowledges that it values the lives of its officers  more than that of its standard grunts, stating that the amount of time and training put into creating an officer far outweighs that of a grunt. With this in mind the M190 Key Personnel Body Armor is made available to all marines who achieve officer rank. Designed to protect its wearer from all known threats the M190 is considered by many to be the top of the line in personal battle field protection.

Effect:  +2 Health, +4 Defense, Defense stat not suffer damage from chemical/acid based attacks, provides immunity to attacks made by facehuggers


Cost:3























































 


West Point Ring:

Description:  Little more than a symbol, it is the skills and training received at West Point that are the true value of this ring. 

Effect:  +1 Intelligence, +1 Stealth, +1 Perception, 


Cost:2

Reputation:
Every officer has one as far as the men and women under his command are concerned. Whether its one for being kind, cruel, stern, wild, or anything else almost all reputations have been earned by the actions of the officer and serve to endear or infuriate those under their command. 

Effect: Allows for the selection of one of the following options

Cost: 2

-An Officer and a Gentleman(Lady)
He/she has a reputation for holding him/herself, and the men and women under his/her command to the highest of standards from the morals of honorable combat, to physical fitness, and even the quest for further knowledge. In many ways he/she represents Marine Command's ideal image of what an officer should be. Those ranked higher then him/her cannot help but realize that he/she is destined for more and those below him/her often find themselves striving to be more like him/her.
Effect:: 2+ Intelligence(representing his/her abilities to command his/her marines), +2 Health, -1 Stealth

-Thirty-eight...Simulated
Not everyone can have hundreds of missions under their belt, everyone has to start somewhere! Fresh out of O.C.S.(Officer Candidacy School) he/she is still very green...and it shows...But hey...every marine knows that God loves the green ones!
Effect: +4 Luck,  -1 Perception


-He's comin' in. I feel safer already.
It must have been brains that got him/her through OCS, because it sure as hell wasn't brawn or marksmanship....He/she has developed a reputation for being a little 'ineffective' in the use of his/her weapons. But his/her mastery of combat tactics is very impressive and everyone knows it.
Effect: +3 Perception, +1 Intelligence, -1 Accuracy

-Ultimate badass! State of the badass art!
Some commanders win battles through finesse, maneuvering, and superior tactics. Others do it by simply steamrolling over their opposition... 
Effect: +2 Attack, +2 Ranged Attack, -1 Intelligence

-He's a damn loose cannon!
He/she puts his/her men before the mission and has proven more than willing to destroy corporate property for the sake of saving civilian lives. In short he/she is a loose cannon, the kind that Marine Command would much rather have die quietly at the ass end of the galaxy then anywhere near where they can raise up a mess.
Effect: +3 Defense, +1 Agility, -1 Health

-You don't see them fucking each other over a goddamn percentage
A corporation slime-ball in a marine uniform. He/she's been secretly on the company's payroll for quite a while and even though no one has ever proven anything his/her reputation for putting corporate interests before the safety of his/her men and those they are supposed to protect is pretty well known.
Effect: + 3 Stealth



Officer’s Saber:

Description:  Commonly used for ceremony, but still kept razor sharp a USMC Officer’s Saber is rarely located far away from its owner due to its symbolizing the officer’s honor….and the fact that it is a required piece of attire when attempting to enter any USMC Officers’ Club for a drink.

Effect:  +2 Attack


Cost:1









Sergeant Exclusive Equipment

Stogie: 


Description:  Bad for your health, but good for your nerves, frowned upon by doctors yet smiled upon by fighting men and women for years. 

Effect:  +3 luck, -1 Health.


Cost:1



Hootch
A little bit of liquid courage never hurt anyone! Despite what the medics say, it puts a little hair on your chest and lets you ignore a little pain....Sadly, Marine Command doesn't share this opinion due to the adverse effects it has on marksmanship and so the only ones who seem able to get away with holding onto a little booze are those who have been in the Corps for quite a while.

Effect: +3 Health, -1 Accuracy

Cost: 1



Customized Scope(Requires Pulse Rifle)
Sometimes the sights on the M41A just aren't enough to make sure that you're able to 'reach out and touch someone.' And so some of the more experienced marines in the Corps. know its a good investment to set aside some of their money for a nice rifle scope. So that when the time comes they can pick off anyone who's trying to hide in the distance.

Effect: +1 Perception, +2 Accuracy

Cost: 2


M38 HEAP Round(Requires under-slung grenade launcher)
The M38 HEAP(High Explosive Armor Piercing) round is a replacement for the standard grenade round used in the M41A's underslung grenade launcher. Capable of penetrating 7cm of steel this round is extremely useful against 'hard' targets.
Under slung grenade launcher (Requires Pulse Rifle):

Effect: + 2 Ranged Attack,

Cost: 2



357 Magnum Revolver:


Description:  Any marine who’s ever seen combat can attest to the near uselessness of the M4A3 with this in mind many NCO’s choose to carry ‘non-uniform’ side arms which are able to prove useful in close quarters as well as at range.

Effect:  +2 Ranged attack, +2 Attack


Cost:3







Advanced Communications Gear:

Description:  The communication between a platoon’s NCO and Officer is vital, with this in mind Platoon Sergeants are granted access to better radio communications gear.

Effect:  Allows its user to communicate with any member of the platoon who also possesses radio equipment regardless of location, Advanced Communications Gear signals cannot be jammed allowing the Sergeant to always hear who is talking to him/her and who he/she is talking to to always hear him/her. 


Cost:4


Heavy Anti-Personal Rounds(Requires Pulse Rifle) :

Description:  VERY non-standard rounds, currently considered contraband by the USMC due to the fact that there is currently a case being made in Geneva by several governments to make them a breach in the rules of combat.

Effect:  +2 Ranged Attack


Cost:2




Squad Synthetic Exclusive Equipment

Synthetic Body (Must Have):


Description:  Manufactured rather than born, synthetics can be looked at with both pity and envy, their programming forcing them to wish to be human, while their bodies are far superior in almost every way. They are stronger, faster, and tougher than will ever be humanly possible.

Effect:  +2 Health, +2 Attack, +2 Agility, Aliens will ignor him/her unless he/she attacks them.

Cost:5


Advanced Motor Skill Upgrades:

Description:  Further upgrades to a synthetic’s body, these upgrades are focused on increasing said synthetic’s movement speed far beyond human capabilities.


Effect:  +2 Accuracy, +2 Agility


Cost:5


Modular Construction:


Description:  Further upgrades to a synthetic’s body, these upgrades are focused on increasing said synthetic’s survivability far beyond what any human can achieve.

 
Effect:  +2 Health, +3 Defense, synthetic is capable of initiating self repair when not under attack allowing him/her to recover up to half of their maximum health regardless of their current health.


Cost:5


Guerilla Warfare Upgrade:
Description:  Further upgrades to a synthetic’s body, these upgrades are focused on turning a synthetic into a warrior capable of spotting and surprising his enemies with minimal effort.

 
Effect:  +4 Stealth, +4 Perception, Synthetic possesses an on board motion tracker, allowing him/her to detect movement without sacrificing stealth.


Cost:5


Flame Retardant Treatment
Description: Upgrades added during a  synthetic's original construction process. The synthetic's "skin" I coated several times over with flame retardant chemicals in order to allow it a substantial measure of protection against flames and heat.

Effect: Flame based attacks deal 1/2 normal damage

Cost: 2

Electronic Warfare Package
The modern battlefield is one filled with a plethora of advanced technology. And to meet the challenges that this fact represents several suppliers of synthetics offer an electronic warfare package. Integrated equipment allows the synthetic to not only be protected from nearly all forms of anti-mechanical  weapons but also allows said synthetic to preform several functions which allow it to disable the technology of its enemies.

Effect: EMP weapons, and electricity based attacks have no effect on the synthetic, Synthetic is able to jam its enemies motion detectors and communications

Cost: 3

Construction & Repair Programming
The usefulness of a mechanic on the battlefield cannot be understated. With soldiers relying on several forms of technology, a squad containing someone who knows how to repair and rebuild said technology will almost always preform much better than one which does not.

Effect: They synthetic is able analyze use and repair any equipment it comes across on the battlefield regardless of said equipment's requirements, Synthetic will have access to several unique opportunities to construct new equipment or modify the squad's existing equipment

Cost: 5



UA-571C Sentry Gun:

Description:  The sentry gun is the end all be all in automated defense systems, armed with a heavy machine gun, onboard motion tracker, infra red detection, and a “Smart Shot” targeting computer the sentry gun will find its target, and it will not miss. But all these abilities come at a heavy cost, the sentry gun weighs in at several hundred pounds over what would be humanly possible to carry, as such when deployed they are paired with a synthetic tasked with transporting and carrying the weapon.

 
Effect:  +3 Ranged Attack when deployed, +2 Accuracy when deployed, +1 Perception when deployed, -2 Agility at all times, Can only be deployed, transported, and programmed  by a synthetic, is immobile unless being carried while un-deployed by a synthetic. 


Cost:3




Smart Gunner Exclusive Equipment

M56 Smart Gun (Must Have):

Description:

 The standard machine gun of the USMC. Despite the fact that the weapon weighs nearly 40 pounds, it can be easily carried and operated with the assistance of a servo-controlled harness. It is called a "smart gun" because the weapons fire is guided by an infrared tracking system on top of the gun's barrel and on a head-mounted goggle system, guided by a targeting processor in the harness. When a target is designated by the tracking system, the harness automatically guides the operator and gun to the target. Switching targets is as simple as pointing the gun's barrel at a new target. The gun can fire in a three round burst or in fully automatic

 
Effect:  +5 Ranged attack + 3 Accuracy, +1 Perception


Cost:5


Radioactive Ammunition:

Description: 
Recently approved for anti-terrorism operations, after a military tribunal’s decision that those who would target innocents do not deserve protection under the rules of war, using self contained radioactive slugs which shatter upon penetrating their target, the smart gun is able to cause wounds that slow down, and inevitably kill their victim without near instant medical care. Some marines have expressed hesitation to using radioactive rounds, claiming them to be ‘bad juju’

 
Effect:  +3 Ranged Attack,  -1 Luck


Cost:3


E5 Advanced Targeting Lens:

Description: 
A lens fitted over the Smart Gunner’s eye it replaces the standard targeting lens and allows for the Smart Gunner to prioritize targets, as well as achieve quicker response times from his/her weapon.

 
Effect:  +1 Accuracy, +1 Perception


Cost:2


Continuous Cycling Barrel:

Description: 

Studys have shown that due to a maximum in human reaction speeds there exists a 1-1.5 second 'window' between when a Smart Gunner will spot a target and decide to open fire, and when the first round leaves the Smart Gun after the barrel has had time to cycle up. To counteract this a continuously cycling barrel system can be used.

 
Effect:  +1 Ranged Attack, -1 Stealth
 

Cost:1

Lightened Frame:
The average Smartgun weighs in excess of 40lbs, even with a sevo-assisted harness this can prove to be quite a burden for the weapon's operator. As such newer production runs of the Smartgun have been constructed out of more advanced alloys which offer a lighter weight to mass ratio while still maintaining the weapon's toughness.

Effect: +1 Agility

Cost: 1

Polymer Chest Plate
Smartgunners normally come under more fire than other marines, this is simply because of the enemy's tendency to focus their fire on the one with the biggest gun. In order to compensate for this USCM command has begun issuing new polymer chest plates to smartgunners in the hopes that the added protection will help cut down on casualties.

Effect: +2 Defense, -1 Agility

Cost: 1


Magnetic Velocity Enhancer
The relatively light caliber of the smartgun's rounds has caused many members of USCM command to question whether a new round need be designed and produced. The costs of the associated re-fitting and re-supplying, to get these rounds into the field would be quite considerable. In order to avoid these costs Marine Command is experimenting with using magnetic coils built into the smartgun's barrel to accelerate the weapon's rounds even further before they exit the weapon. Hopes are high that this will offer the smartgun greater punching power at a much lower monetary cost.

Effect: -2 to Enemy Defense stat

Cost: 3



Rear View Mirror:

Description: 
Taken from a bike, a car, a bathroom, or a barbershop, a Smart Gunner's rear view mirror is exactly what it sounds like a mirror the smart gunner can use to make sure nothing is sneaking up behind him/her rather than having to turn around with his/her heavy harness

 
Effect:  +1 Perception,


Cost:1





Flamethrower Man Exclusive Equipment

M240B Flamethrower(Required):

Description: 
The M240 Incinerator Unit is a lightweight, carbine-style flamethrower which uses a pressurized ultra-thickened napthal fuel. The M240 Incinerator Unit can be supplied either through canisters or a direct mains supply.

Cost:5



















Range Reactive Nozzle: (Flamethrower):

Description: 
A targeting system for the M240 Incinerator Unit, using a laser sight the M240 is able to measure the distance between its barrel and the target.

Cost:3

Effect: +1 Attack, +1 Ranged Attack

Cost: 2

White Phosphorous Injection
Commonly used in incendiary grenades white phosphorous can also be added to flamethrower fuel. When a flamethrower that has had white phosphorous fires it not only projects flames but also tiny burning pieces of white phosphorous. Each one of these tiny pieces lets off extreme amounts of heat at levels so high that even those normally shielded from flame attacks are damaged.

Effect: Enemies who would normally be resistant to flame attacks are not resistant to the marine's flamethrower

Cost: 3

Kinetic Dampeners (Requires Ape Suit)
An upgrade for the standard armor for a squad’s flame thrower man, kinetic dampening systems are built into the suit in order to allow the marine to have much more stable footing even when faced with forces that would normally knock them from their feet.

Hello Urbanzorro, hello Haibane!  It just so happens that I'm edging my way back into the roleplaying scene here on Elliquiy just in time to catch this game from the start.  I enjoyed my (brief) involvement in the original game, and feel that I may have an easier time participating this time around with a character of my own design, rather than jumping into the middle of things to abruptly. 

I'd love to take up the "Flamethrower Man" position of Squad 1 if someone hasn't already leaped upon it behind the scenes.

I'd be interested, like Haibane, I would want to bring back my character from the previous game. I like the idea of knowing what is out there and showing a bunch of "fresh" marines what to expect. I would not mind being a "Merc" who formerly served with the UNSC and was hired (and paid well) to "help" with this mission. I am open, but I am also willing to come back as the Squad leader.

The game before this one was good, I just think we need to make sure it does not pace as slow because I think that is what caused it to idle and eventually die.

I shouldn't be doing this, I have plenty of games but damn this setting and being so freaking similar to Starcraft!

For kids in his small town in Nebraska, you either were smart enough to go to college, dumb enough to get a manual labor job and hope you weren't replaced by a robot, or you joined the military. Cooper and a bunch of his buddies picked the third option, but he was the only one to bull his way through boot camp and come out whole on the other side. Except for training exercises he's never been off-planet. He's got a romanticized view of what combat is like, but he's no hero - he's here to help the heroes out.

Name: "Tychus" Tiberius "Caesar" Mengsk

Age: 35
Position in platoon/rank: Platoon Leader

<<<<<DOCUMENTS CLASSIFIED>>>>
Personal history:
Despite having a father high in the ranks of the USMC, the discipline the man brought down on his son only reaped rebellion. Tiberius did everything in his power to be a rail spike in his father's side from the day he could form a cohesive sentence. The music, the piercings, the tattoos his behavior in general against all figures of authority brought a shame to the highly respective man who had been known to break and mold some of the most respected men in the core.

<<<<<DOCUMENTS CLASSIFIED>>>>
It was when the boy began his transformation into a young man and began to truly follow the path of a future convict that forced Tiberius's father take drastic actions. A few days past his seventeenth birthday he kidnapped his own son and had him sent off to boot. It took two years to beat the rebellion out of him but to his surprise, Tiberius took to the life of a solider so well he pulled strings and had him sent off to West Point.

<<<<<DOCUMENTS CLASSIFIED>>>>
Tiberius seemed out of place in a class room but in his element with the mantle of command on his shoulders. On mission he is cunning and ruthless, brutal against his enemy and cold to his squad members but it is so they all live to see another day. The rebellious nature that is instinct to him still surfaces from time to time, he would go off orders if it meant saving the life of those who trust him with their lives. The higher ups (as far as he is concerned) have no idea what it is like in the trenches and until they are fighting along side him (like he does with his unit) they can drop dead as far as he is concerned. During off-times he is a different person, he smiles and jokes around despite whatever grim choices and realities they will have to face the next day.

Tychus has been assigned this new mission after replacing the last CO, nothing is known about him but it is rumored that despite his body he was a bench warmer up at high command somewhere. His father is the star of that family but not much else is known of the man who goes by the name "Tychus".
