AliensRL / A very useful site for all things Colonial Marine

I went looking for info on how the pulse rifle actually worked.

What I found was the USCMC Wiki page. Of course, the most important part...

The weapons list.

Let me tell you quickly about Traveller.

It is perhaps the only system in which your character can die during creation.

Now, introductions out of the way... I've been kicking around the idea of running a game, using the Traveller system, and the setting... well, imagine a mix of Alien Breed / Tower Assault / Aliens Roguelike. That should tell you what to expect (aside from a sudden and painful death with your innards spread out over a few square metres.)

So... do we have any vict- err, volunteers?

-- General ---------------------------------------------------

 Before him 20 brave souls have ventured into Phobos:
 14 of those were killed.
 1 of those was killed by something unknown.
 And 5 couldn't handle the stress and committed a stupid suicide.


Thoughts and reflections:
-Finding out the AFJ fires explosive rounds came as a bit of a shock. Especially when you fire it first time at an arch-vile at point blank range.
-The lava pits sounded bad. They're worse.
-The vaults... I was able to crack one, which happened to contain the AFJ. The other two... couldn't figure them out, I'm afraid.
-The RNG protects. I managed to grab an I-globe just as I ran into a pack of Mancubi with a pair of arch-viles for company. Would've been hard going even with a BFG...
-Yes, Malek, I'll start playing on M now...

Discussion / Illustrations of Doom
« on: August 29, 2009, 13:08 »
A brief history lesson first:

Some time ago, Fantasy Flight Games released a boardgame version of Doom. Among other things, this game allowed for special abilities for the Marine players to beef them up a bit before their inevitable death (seriously, we've never won a game as long as we've played.) This of course gave rise to certain "classes" of Marines, specializing for example in laying down suppressing fire with rifles or chainguns, taking hits or busting Hell Knights' faces in with their bare fists.

Enter my imagination.

I got the idea to illustrate some of these classes in action. After asking for volunteers to be pictured on another forum, I set about the task, and completed, if memory serves, 10 images all told. Some better, some worse... eh.

Point of the story: this being a Doom-oriented board, was wondering if there'd be any objection to me showing those off here as well. The catch, though... well, I used furry characters (anthropomorphic/humanoid animals) rather than humans. It's just how I work. So if someone's allergic to a marine with a fox's head or raptors with chainsaws, just say it and I'll speak no more of this matter.
