    The First Alien War

    Many years ago strange things happened.

    Cows started disappearing and returning dead. Sometimes they were horribly mutated or amputated. Organs were harvested too.

    People were abducted, never to be seen again.

    Strange flying objects that were yet to be identified were seen streaking across the skies like Ezekiel's Chariot.

    In 1998 the Japanese took the initiative and formed the Kiryu-Kai but due to lack of performance within it's 5 months of operation it was quickly dismantled.

    It didn't take long before the UN gathered together and came up with Kiryu-Kai's replacement.

    That replacement was formed in the year 1999 to combat alien life in the land and air. Using high tech equipment such as a ball point pen, lightning fast fighter planes, VTOL Transports, remote controlled tanks that are driven using an old Arcade Game cabinet and many more the replacement was deemed ready to fight this Xeno threat.

    The name of the force is X-COM, Extraterrestrial Combat unit. What follows is the story of the main force within X-COM known as Klendathu Division. The name itself comes from a notable section of a film where humans did battle with aliens who attacked Earth but lost. They bear this name in the hopes they do not suffer the same fate.

    What follows is a "then present tense" account of The First Alien War.

    Hello members of Outlaw Star UK division. I am Heresiarch Grimm, the enacting commander of X-COM's main division known as Klendathu. This line of communication has been made to enable you to assist in the war against the aliens.

    X-COM operations begin shortly. First we need some preliminary information for the staging point of our war.

    Firstly we need a name for the first base we shall be using.

    Secondly, soldiers are needed for our war effort. If you would like to join the battle lines then you can give your name and answer these questions:

    [align=center]1) Do you like using heavy weaponry such as rocket launchers and rapid fire cannons?[/align]

    [align=center]2) If No to the above, do you prefer being a typical soldier who carries a rifle and standard military equipment?[/align]

    [align=center]3) If No to the above, do you prefer scouting out areas and using stealth to beat the aliens whilst making everyone else's job easier?[/align]

    [align=center]4) If No to all of the above, do you like the prospect of driving a tank inside of an arcade cabinet?[/align]

    Your answers will dictate what role you have in Klendathu. There is a limited amount of spots for each role. There can only be:

    [align=center]1 Tank Driver[/align]
    [align=center]2 Scouts[/align]
    [align=center]6 Riflemen[/align]
    [align=center]2 Supports[/align]

    The next comm. link is in exactly three days.
    Fighting through Aliens, Robots, Insane sick people, demons, plants, dragons, fish, squids, jellyfish and more for the good of the forum!


    When I play a game, I usually want to see lethal amounts of death and destructive amounts of ruination.

    RE: The First Alien War

    Name: Dr. Killjoy

    1) No.

    2) Yes.

    As for the base name, I'll let someone else decide that, unless no one provides one within a few days.

    RE: The First Alien War

    We're calling the base MAP32. It's a tradition here; each and every time HQ has been called MAP32, we've gone on to achieve victory.

    So deal with it.

    RE: The First Alien War

    I'll wait for all base name suggestions before picking one. Probably by using dice.

    Well you're as good as dead, now that you've said this.

    RE: The First Alien War

    MAP32
    In-jokes or inside references like this that lie within your Doom/Skulltag triangle—which nobody else will understand—is a good reason why others would find it difficult to participate. You need to make it accessible, and cutting out those inside things would be a start. That said, sign me up. In most games that allow, I take the stealthy approach, so make me a scout.

    I don't really have any other base names to suggest. How about a simple word, like "Influence"? After all, a successful first battle is what is needed to boost soldier morale.
    Gene: "Have faith in me guys, enjoy the ride—you're in good hands. I can handle this. I can do it!"
    Jim: "How do you know?"
    Gene: "I don't!"
    Jim: "I knew it."
    Gene: "That's okay. There's a first time for everything!"

    RE: The First Alien War

    If you're going to pick a name randomly, I'll throw in my suggestion. Call it "Earth Light"!

    Although that itself probably qualifies as an obscure reference, considering it's named after a strategy game that I'm pretty sure nobody but me has played, ever.

    RE: The First Alien War

    Scout roles are filled by Mantis and Kokiri.

    Current riflemen are Dr.Killjoy and TheMacheteJoe which leaves 4 spaces.

    There's still vacancies for a Tank Driver and Two Supports.

    And Mantis, I foresaw BaronOfStuff submitting Map32 hence the three day timespan for other people to suggest names.

    Current Base Name suggestions are:

    Map32
    Oracle
    Influence
    Earth Light.
