I'm anti-plot from the newer games. I've only played the first, but it's got such a great concept and different things going on that we can craft a great, intricate story. XCOM needs funding so they start running alien harems. Alien spies in XCOM seducing soldiers. Missions all around the world...there's lots of possibilities.

We'd need sexy aliens for those ideas. We'll have to see how liberal Zenpai is in keeping to canon or not.

Well the Alien solider units from X-com were genetically modified/cooked up by their masters for a specific task. Who is to say they don't have a more sexual breed for infiltration and seduction stored away? Or can't make one?

It was meant to more towards stealth missions. Sexy aliens could fit But, they would look like human like thin men. It would only work for the story

Hey all.

Big fan of XCom (was actually about to start playing), so this thread caught my interest.

While we're brainstorming ideas, I'd like to throw in a suggestion.

Suppose the Aliens that the Canon operatives faced were not the only race of alien in the Universe?

After the temple ship was taken down, another race of alien took notice in Earth and decided to take a crack at us. Only this race of alien is almost completely female.



Same basic XCom premise, just a different breed of invader. It might also be interesting if this breed of Alien also attempted to target soldiers (Players) for their own experiments, which would open up rescue missions.

I like it. I'm half tempted to start my own separate XCOM game and try running that idea.

Okay, that's understandable.

So we're going with a more Canon approach then?

For my two cents I think your best bet is to either go with a full revamp of the basic story. Keeping the major concept of an alien invasion being fought off by an international group of soldiers/scientists/etc and possibly change things that don't fit well. Such as the Allen's motivation, etc. The setting's lack of an in depth story plays to your advantage here because it allows the freedom to craft a story around original characters, with plot points and story lines that fit the role play you're trying to make instead of being hamstrung into a specific storyline/character type/etc. For instance in this game's story Exalt could be a larger threat than it was in Enemy Within. Or the aliens could be seeking to enslave us, or wipe us out after having harvested the useful parts of our genome, additionally the door is open to more types of aliens to fight as the story goes on. The basic plot skeleton that X-COM provides is actually quite flexible once you take a look at it :-)

That is what most people want zenpai. By cutting out alien/human sex, you lost a lot of people's interest.

Of course, a lot of those - the ones willing to dump a game for not being explicitly sexual - aren't going to be ideal roleplayers anyway, and if that's all they cared about what roleplaying talent they DID have probably wouldn't been used to contribute the game, or could have even ended up mostly derailing it if you're trying to keep an arc moving and they're trying to ignore the plot in favor of seducing other players.

Running a serious, roleplaying-focused game without sex on Elliquiy can be a challenge since not everyone joins just because Elliquiy doesn't restrict content; a number of players have the specific goal of getting off while pretending to be elves or stupid tourists or X-Men or whatever. Those people immediately stop considering a game without sexual elements - as noted above, this may not be a huge loss, given their reasons for play could detract from the story. It's not impossible, though, and there are any number of games in both the Adult and Non-Adult forums that have gotten up and running without sexual/romantic focus respectively. The most important things are a good pitch and a well-written setting to draw people in.

But alien invasions are so ripe for weird sex scenarios. Anyway, did you want this game to have a dice system, zenpai?

I'm with it. Just gimme a character sheet, some guns, and I'm good to go.

Never did an Xcom story before so I'm really interested to see how it'll play out.

I actually picked up the game again since you put this up.

Might be interesting to just play as Exalt then, obviously with the option for characters of both genders and simply play it from the side of Exalt having to fight both the aliens and the XCOM project.

Looks like I found some time ;)

Immortal
Name: Lamar Dantis

Code Name: “Immortal”

Sex: Male

Age: 26

Rank: Lieutenant

Nation: USA

Class /Role: Marksman/Assault

Picture:

Bio: Lamar grew up in an Urban city of the United States. Exposed to guns and violence at a young age prepared him for a lifetime of firefighting and storms of bullets. Throughout his youth, he supported himself by being hired Muscle for a local drug dealer. Between rival gang violence and several drug busts, Lamar survived several gunshot wounds and attempts at his life. He escaped this life after graduating High School and had aspiration to go to University for business, however, a haunting criminal record that contained multiple accounts of assault and menacing deterred nearly all college recruiters from accepting him. With a determination to escape the societal trap that so many before him fell in to, Lamar joined the US Marine Core in hopes of gaining experience and an education.

The marines had a different goal in mind; to mold his raw potential into something that would more benefit their front lines. Lamar was put through the ringer and subjected to every form of “training” imaginable. The marines were able to hone his body and instincts, but they could not break his rebellious mind and fortified heart. What some officers found difficult to manage, others noticed the potential in an unbendable mind and soul.

Lamar was granted a promotion, and served in the front lines on several anti-terrorist operations. He gained the codename “Immortal” after his squadron was sent to extract a group of Black Ops agents from a covert mission gone south. Lamar survived a building collapse, a UED, and having the transport vehicle shot down, yet he and his team still managed to successfully complete the mission.
 

Entry into the project: After reviewing the soldier’s combat records, the Marines thought it would be beneficial to the world if Lamar joined the Project. His paperwork was sent off and Lamar Dantis was prepared for the next chapter of his life. Hopefully the name “Immortal” would hold true.
