XCOM Academy - Narrator's Cut - Prologue

XCOM Academy - Narrator's Cut - Premise    Played on Normal at first. After the alien base assault, played on Classic, with "plot" missions played on Impossible.    Two soldiers per squad will be "cadre" soldiers that get leveled up normally. One SHIV may be used instead of a cadre soldier.    Everyone else is rookies, who are sent to XCOM by various countries' militaries (or even NGOs) in order to learn how to fight the aliens. This is the primary (stated) point of the project.    Non-cadre soldiers who level up to Corporal are rotated out (fired) after their first mission with the Corporal rank, which is their graduation mission.

Ringology

A common myth dating to the beginning of the Third Age talks about the struggle to find and destroy a small but potent artifact -- a ring, a chalice, a crown -- before the Lord of Decay could retrieve it and restore himself to full power. The Alphatians narrate of a mighty tournment between wizards and sorcerers, organized by the Lord of Decay himself as a pretext to get one of the contestants to recover the artifact, and how the winner managed to turn the evil one's deceit against him. The Thyatians somberly report the entire might of an empire turned to one task, culminating with the largest army ever assembled constructing a road across

https://emlia.org/dwiki/index.php?n=Main.MarsThoughts I can't SEE! That's what I get for freaking out. I got plenty of air, but my mask is fogged and all I can see is a red blur if I look down and a pink blur if I look up. In meantime there's a dog-person with a gyro crossbow looking for me. I hear a thunk through the thin martian atmosphere - very faint. Sounds like she's plinking the obvious rock to hide behind that I didn't slide past - no, wait, thin air, she hit this rock. Okay, how do I get out of this? Stop, McFly, think. That was a good run. You're winded and your breathing mask is fogged. She's probably in the same shape. Whoever

I've just realized that my deviantart gallery has more submissions than it has comments. I do not think that this is healthy for my self esteem. Feedback is a necessary part of any artistic endeavor, otherwise there's a significant risk of solipsism....
