Draconic Saviour Chap 2

The three Spartans of Red Team were joined aboard their Pelican by four of their new allies, members of “Fang Team”. The Draconians were huge, slightly larger than even the Brutes, standing at two and a half metres on average, and were clad in slightly blocky “Solaris” power armour. This was the maximum number they could fit inside the Pelican along with the three Spartans, who were equipped with bulky external thruster packs. “[We are approaching the Storm of Darkness,]” the pilot reported, “[The hull seems to be containing most of the radiation. We should be able to get within one hundred metres.]&r

Noble Six, SPARTAN-III Leon B312, growled as he swung the Sabre around, turning its guns against a Seraph that was attempting to slot in behind one of the other prototype human fighters protecting the Anchor Nine orbital shipyard. ¨Damn,¨ Jorge snarled, ¨They're starting to overwhelm the others.¨ ¨Are they onto us?¨Leon wondered, launching a missile quartet at the Seraph whose shields he had just downed, and turning his attention to another one. ¨[More impulse signatures detected. Dammit, it looks like the Supercarrier's sent out their entire fighter contingent!]¨ ¨They certainly know we're up to something,

X-COM Enemy Within, Resolute Defense Mission 1

    Final audiovisual recording from bridge, Resolute Defender.    “NEVEC forces incoming!”    “Damn! Right when we don’t want them!”    The men and women manning the bridge of the enormous mobile fortress were a mixed-seeming bag, with clothes ranging from NEVEC combat uniforms to Waysider garb to one man wearing a heavily modified suit of Bug Rancher Akrid-chitin armour . In actuality, they were one crew, but they had captured a lot of gear, and given the parallel protection levels of the various armours, what people wore was more a matter of personal preference than anything else.    “Get us into the

Captain James Cutter hated cryostasis revival. Coughing, he pushed himself into a seated position. “S-status,” he coughed. “All systems normal,” Serena said, her avatar appearing on a nearby holographic plinth, “However, reserves of reactor fuel are running dangerously low. I’ve already scavenged additional tritium and deuterium from the base-building supplies, but that’s only a stopgap measure.” “Serena, how long has it been?” “U-uh,” the AI stammered, something Cutter had never seen before, in any AI. “Serena?” he asked, his tone firm, “How long.&rdquo

Ryan Knight sighed as he wandered down the corridor. He'd been assigned this team randomly; apparently three of their members had graduated, while another had been pulled out of the academy for some reason, and his transfer had had a condition of him being added to a randomly-chosen team that had some space. Room 221, he thought, eyeing the stretch of corridor. There was a dorm with half its number missing and some scorch marks a few doors down, but the one he wanted had been decorated by a small banner with a stylised dragon's-head logo. Taking a deep breath, Ryan knocked firmly. "It's open!" came the call, and the Lucario blinked, befor

Spyro and Cynder rested in their rebuilt room in Warfang. "Spyro," Cynder murmured, nuzzling him, "I thought we'd lost you." Spyro looked at her, a loving expression on his face. "You will never truly lose me," he said, "When a dragon dies, he doesn't truly leave this world. I may have a special destiny that awaits me once I die, but that is a long way into the future. Besides, I'll always be here to watch over you." Spyro paused for a moment, looking at his own back. A double line of silver ran on each side of his spine, shimmering in the faint light. "A bit surprised by it?" Cynder asked, drawing a smile from Spyro. "In a way," he rep

Spyro scanned the Valley of Avalar from the cave he and Cynder were staying in. “You know, I liked it here the first time I came,” he said to Cynder, looking around at her. “I know what you mean, Spyro,” she replied from where she was lying at the back of the cave. A noise from the valley made Spyro whip his head around and scan the area. It wasn’t any noise he had ever heard before; a sort of sound that was almost like an explosion, but one that had been focussed into a controlled burst. A creature that Spyro recognised as one of Malefor’s minions slammed into the cliff and disintegrated into a spray of gems

Ignitus took a few moments to study the book of deaths, and then murmured, “Now then, young dragon, where might you be?” When the book did not react, Ignitus willed it back to its shelf, and called down Spyro’s book. Opening it to the last few chapters, Ignitus read about his own apparent death, Spyro’s near corruption, the battle through the Burned Lands, the battles in the Floating Isles, Cynder’s near corruption at the hands of Malefor, her return, and then, in glorious, blow-by-blow detail, the battle with Malefor. Ignitus read on, saw the final words of Cynder within the heart of the world, and was a little sur

Spyro and Cynder have finally completed their long and difficult journey, both apart and together, and, to a great many peoples, they will remain forever in their hearts and legends. However, their adventures are not yet over. Malefor’s influence has not yet left the world, and new Guardians must be chosen to carry the torch to a new generation. New enemies begin to emerge as well; the jaguars, the fierce rivals of the cheetahs, renegade dragons, and even old enemies return, intent on revenge. But Spyro is not alone. Cynder steps forward once again to fight by Spyro’s side, and new allies begin to emerge; Jaxamar, known to all as

Note: Almost all of the following vehicles also have unmanned versions. In some cases the difference between the versions is stated. Only the Flyboy, the DragonBike, the MCCU and the BCCU absolutely require drivers of some kind, and Light Assault Bots are more than up to the job, although the MCCU and BCCU require a biological pilot. Some units do not have manned versions. MCCU: The designation MCCU is short for Military Command and Control Unit. The Dragonreach Alliance’s version comes equipped with two Plasma Torpedo Launchers, one in each arm, two Proto-crafters, a flight capability, Overcharge (the ability to destroy almost any unit

So. Eclipse. Not as bad as I'd feared, but still... not good. A lot of features are missing, ones I used frequently. I can understand why a lot of people are angry. I'm quite annoyed myself. I'll be staying, but DA staff? Don't expect me to pos

Saying No to Eclipse

Saying No to Eclipse

Now, while I'll be sticking around regardless, I've seen Eclipse and... it's not good. It's a massive step backwards; it's not intuitive at all, and it's difficult to even tell what page you're on at time (in fact, I consistently mistake my notifications page for browsing/search pages), and I've been hearing bad things about actually using it (I've been switching back to old-style ASAP). As such, I've signed a petition  (link here: change.org), and I ask that any of you who watch me who don't want to be forced to use Eclipse go and sign it as well. Thanks for your time, and I hope you're doing well despite everything that's going on.
