The Guidelines Of WarWritten about the firsthand accounts of Navy SEAL Petty Officer First Class Marcus Luttrell during Operation Redwing in Afghanistan on 28 June 2005, showing the uselessness of the Geneva Conventions when the opposing force do not take after the Conventions themselves. Three of the four Navy SEALs on his team were killed in action due to the vote on letting three goat-herders go, instead of killing them, after they were discovered. The choice was based on the fear of the liberal media labeling them as murderers and resulting in imprisonment of four of our finest service-members; the choice got MOH-recipient Michael P. Murphy and Navy Cross recipients Matthew Axelson and Danny Dietz killed. Luttrell was also awarded the Navy Cross for selflessness in the line of combat.The Guidelines Of War5 years ago in Settings More Like This
Here's what's gotta be said.

SCP-XXXX: The Son of the Sun
Object Class: Keter
Special Containment Procedures: SCP-XXXX is to be contained in a special 10m X 10m X 10m cell. Each of the cell walls are made of at least 5m of lead sandwiched between an internal 1m layer of heat resistant titanium/tungsten alloy coated with silica Aerogel and an external 3 meters of steel-plate reinforced concrete. SCP-XXXX isn't forbidden from roaming the facility (quite frankly, doing so would be impossible) but is advised to remain in its cell as much as possible. Note that because of the destructive power this XXXX can create, combined with the fact that it isn't innately aggressive, these precautions are not meant to imprison it; they are meant to limit the damage it can do and make its containment as safe as possible. SCP-XXXX has demonstrated a desire to wander around and interact with facility staff, as well as a desire to learn about its environment. If SCP-XXXX begins wandering the facility, all on site staff must either eva
Dark Kisses - Chapter 3 - The EncountererThe walled-in pipes creaked, leaked. The rumor was true, the pipes sometimes even moved. Only out of the corner of Gabrielle's eye, but when she looked, they had stopped. Fear made itself home as it swelled deeper inside of her heart. Whatever was leading her onward, or what she would call The Voice, would every few minutes remind her of her destination. Each time she felt a wave of nausea, which increased each time she heard it. However, the closer she felt she was getting to the source, the less The Voice seemed to call out to her, leaving her frustrated. The damp, wet, stained ground made of solid cement was the only cold thing so far, as the hot dust-filled air surely was nothing like it. It wasn't too long until Gabby saw one small, tiny room that looked very hard to fit into. Who knows how high it was. It went so high that she couldn't see where it ended, just like the ceiling. What could ever fit in that? As she approached it, she saw a small door only about tDark Kisses - Chapter 3 - The Encounterer3 years ago in Profiles More Like This

Commander Armando Bailey sits with his fingers steepled in front of him, looking at the young Quarian girl in front of him. Her suit covers only her torso and legs, leaving her arms uncovered. Glittering green lines trace patterns down her slender arms. Her mask, a light blue, doesn't hide the apprehensive expression on her face, her glowing blue eyes awash with uncertainty and fear.
"You do know that you're in some serious trouble here, young lady?"
Her eyes lock on his for a moment before nodding. Bailey continues, keeping his voice calm and quiet, "Care to explain why you were caught hacking into the Sirta Foundation's mainframe?"
She mumbles something that Bailey can't make out. "I'm sorry, but you're gonna have to speak up. I'm getting up there in years. My hearing's not what it once was."
She looks at him quizzically as he gives her a small smile. "You're on your Pilgrimage, aren't you?"
Gears of War Story: BairdBaird sat on the ground in his back yard as he fiddled around with machine parts his father had no use for anymore. He took them apart and looked at the components that made them work. He reached for his wrench as his hand searched the dirt floor until he finally felt it protruding from a small patch of grass. He picked it up and tinkered with something inside what looked like a small handheld device; almost like a TV remote or a miniature radio.Gears of War Story: Baird4 years ago in Settings More Like This
Baird pulled out more parts as he inspected them closely to see what they were. When he had found out he laid them down in stacks of the same type of material. They were mostly wires.
Young Damon finally stood up and went back towards his rather large house that was bigger than what most people had in these times, his family was considered rich to most people that knew him. He walked in the back door that led to the basement where he looked around for more things he could take apart without his father scolding him for it. Unless he was caught.

A grey pair of eyes narrowed at the small group of soldiers moving through the carnage below.
They call me a killer, a monster, a terrorist. I’m all these things.
Coming up from his crouching position on the building, Alex stood, and stepped off the edge. His clothes flapped in the wind as he made his quick descent. A loud thud followed by the shattering glass of nearby cars, which had shuddered violently from the impact, echoed through the streets. The debris cleared away, revealing the hooded man standing, unscathed.
Looking in the direction the soldiers took, his eyes narrowed in a predatory manner. He would have to be patient and attack once his prey was in position. The thought of waiting angered him, but he knew that it would pay off in the long run.
Turning into the opposite direction, Alex sprinted at incredible speeds, flipping and sliding over any obstacles he encountered. Jumping on an abandon

Jack stands unsure in the doorway, watching both Shepard and Liara taking off in the dark blue car. She takes a deep breath, "Well, here goes nothing."
The sounds of shuffling footsteps reaches her ears. Turning she sees little Syren coming towards her, a dark brown teddy bear clutched tightly to her chest with both arms. She comes to stop right in front of Jack, looking up into her brown eyes with a mixture of apprehension and curiosity. Suddenly she holds out the bear to Jack. "Well now, who's this?"
Syren doesn't say anything for a few seconds, but then quietly says, "Athena."
Jack crouches down and takes the bear's paw. "Hi there Athena. Are you one of Syren's friends?"
Syren blushes slightly and nods, the makings of a smile beginning to play upon her lips. Her bright eyes fall on the various tattoos covering Jack's arms. She hesitantly reaches out and touches the intricate designs on Jack's forearm. "....So pretty...."
Jack chuckles to herself. "You like these?"

Liara T'Soni-Shepard exits her skycar into the pouring rain, the gunmetal-grey skies blocking out the sun. She wears a simple black dress and carries a bouquet of white flowers from Thessia. The grieving doctor doesn't bother with an umbrella, instead letting the rain wash over her skin, mixing with her tears. She begins her slow walk towards the large group of people crowded underneath a wide awning, when suddenly a hand grips her shoulder reassuringly, and the rain stops. Looking over her shoulder, she finds Garrus holding an umbrella over her, his expression unreadable. He nods to her, his grip speaking volumes as he guides her towards the crowd. As they near the group, Liara notices that nearly everyone has shown up today.

Using your mouse you position a gravity well at the center of cloud and use your scroll wheel to increase or decrease the density of the well, and pulling the gasses in forming your star. You settle on an M Class Star, 15% larger than Sol.Spore 2: As it Should Be4 years ago in Profiles More Like This
Once you've created your star the game highlights two bands orbiting the newly formed star and indicates them to be the Goldilocks zones, one for a terrestrial planet, and another for a potential moon of a Gas Giant. You choose the terrestrial body and position its gravity well at 1 AU, using the scroll wheel to make it 95% the size of Earth, with equal mass. The debris begins to form a molten body where you positioned the well, and the game indicates that it is time to form the planet's satellites. You position three gravity wells, forming three small moons from the debris orbiting your world, but the game indicates that there is still left ov

Bright white light shone from outside the den and Ashfur sighed; more snow. Leafbare really was the worst time of the year. He slid outside, wincing slightly as his paws sunk into the cold, fresh snow. Since no one else was awake, he decided to go hunting. The clan needed all the food they could find at the moment. He skirted the clearing and slunk out of tunnel and trotted up the hill, mouth open to catch the scents.Ash x Scourge3 years ago in Profiles More Like This
Ashfur was almost at the lake when he caught a scent. Cat, definately, but it didn't smell like any of the clans cats... Actually, it was kind of familiar. He dropped into a hunter's crouch and slid noiselessly into a bush. He peered out and studied the strange cat. The cat was small, yet definately a male. He had pure black fur and had a purple collar, studded with teeth. The cat's ear twitched, and he turned his head. His ice b

Korrak never dreamed in his sleep, he just had nightmares. His superiors would say the missions and events he revisited in his restless nights were moments of bravery and testaments of the Batarian Race. But, all Korrak knew was that they were unwelcome.
The nightmare he was having now...he couldn't quite understand what he was seeing.
Korrak saw flames, tall flames. They started bright orange like a sunset, but eventually rose to a great height that withered into thick black smoke. He felt their heat, it was invading and made his flesh feel like it was boiling. Wincing, he tried to back away, but his legs didn't budge. His muscles refused his own brains commands, only allowing him to take in the sight before him.
The voice shot through his entire body, making him shudder beneath its invisible weight. Suddenly, his body was allowed movement. He fell to a knee, gasping for breath as his heart raced. Sweat dripped
