Phew! No X-COM personnel infected. That could have turned REALLY ugly.

Getting ripped apart by a Chrysalid is a pretty fitting way to lose your tank.

So, I think I officially became luckiest still surviving trooper.  Two kills on my first mission, first trooper to take down a Chryssalid, and surviving friendly fire from the HLPX-COM resident badass The_E.

When the new Interceptor arrives, my reported last words to my squaddies were "**** this ****" (or if I die.  Same last words either way).

2 kills and an assist with no hits taken in my first mission? This cant last, I fear for the next round.  :shaking:

And oh god, when we get back to base we have to deal with a very pissed off spoon, that might be even worse.

It's already here, so you don't have to deal with another ground mission. Interceptor 3 is currently arming and fueling in the Hanger at Dekker's Pad. -Joshua- has magically taken your place.

Speaking of which, the all-time soldier list as updated for recent actions. (We let Flipside out of the lab so he could take over manning the tank at Dekker's Pad in case of emergency.)

Support Staff
Dekker; original pilot of Interceptor 1, transferred to fly Interceptor 3 out of Dekker's Pad.
Nuke; pilot of Interceptor 2
Darius;  pilot of Skyranger 1
Spoon; teleoperates Area 51 Tank
Scotty; new pilot of Interceptor 1
Flipside; standby to operate Dekker's Pad Tanks

This is awesome!  NGTM-1R, I like your style.

I played X-COM back in 1993, but had no manual, so failed many times.  Finally I played it to completion three years ago.  Closure!

I would like to sign up to this meat grinder.  And if I ever survive long enough (or join late enough), I wouldn't mind being a somewhat suicidal squaddie in charge of a stunner.  (woo, alliteration!)  I had the most fun trying to capture aliens in my last games.

Oh boy.... terror missions. At night. With our favorite zombifying aliens.

I'm surprised we only had 1 casualty.

Re: HLPX-COM: You're All Dying For Your Planet, Right Here!
This is an awesome thread. :D  I really should have noticed it before now.  As a result I'm late to my own funeral. :(

Bring me back again, and this time as a dude.  Five missions of baddassery ought to count for invoking whatever quantum whatsit brought back Rodo and Jr2.

Also, the paperwork seems to have gotten Mjn.Mixael's name spelled wrong.  See if you can punch through the bureaucracy and request a fix.


My most recent save has gotten corrupted somehow (the game absolutely flipped out when yet another terror mission spawned at Cape Town)

There are undoubtedly additional causes, but I find that this happens reliably if I start a mission while an Interceptor has an iconified engagement going on.

I'm actually going to be recruiting a whole other squad to operate out of England, soon, so you'll get your chance at resurrection. I make no promises about anyone being assigned to the correct  sex or even gender, however!

As for the name, I have no excuse sir.

I did intend to transfer in some experienced people (sending out a completely green squad at this point is several times stupider than I'm prepared to be), so certainly.

Wait, how did I befcome a squaddie, I don´t recall being on a mission.

Oh right - You renamed dekker to me because groundpounders can't become pilots right?

Stupidity is the proud backbone of HLP!
If you hit it and it bleeds, you can kill it. If you hit it and it doesn't bleed...You are obviously not hitting hard enough.
