Re: X-COM 2 - 2019 Campaign Thread

"... and that was 'Stayin' Alive' by the Bee Gees here on Whatever Pre-War Music We Can Scavenge Hour. Life in the Arctic may be cooold, damn cold, but that's okay, because the tunes are still hot, here on X-Com Radio. We're here for you, three hours a day, alien patrols permitting!" "Coming up next...

Re: X-COM 2 - 2019 Campaign Thread

Vic looks thoughtful... until he nods, finally. "Music. Not a bad idea, old man." He tosses down his cards, giving up on the last hand. "This place is too quiet... and we all seem to stay in our little boxes. I ain't met many of the science staff. Getting the feeling people see us as field team agen...

Re: X-COM 2 - 2019 Campaign Thread

Vic looks more thoughtful on the way up the stairs to the briefing room. He had done, ever since seeing the psionic device in the theatre; he'd only been more so, since meeting the woman called Cat, and digging Nancy and Heidi out of ADVENT detention. He nods along with Jess's words, but muses hard ...

Re: Conversation at the Giant's Folly, Tarsah 5, Late Evening

Dermot nods, and hmms at what Lloria says. He furrows his brow in thought. "I'm with you, I think." He shrugs, looking to Rosten grimly. "When the swords come out, it's to save something, not break something. It's just that... sometimes you run up against someone who don't give you a choice. Sometim...

Re: X-COM 2 - 2019 Campaign Thread

"It's good that this ship'll fly if it needs to, Jess." Vic says, sipping at the vaguely flavoured water from the spigot, sitting at the table, rewatching camera footage for the dozenth time. "I swear, something's gonna happen..." It had been something he'd been telling anyone from the Alpha Team wh...

Re: X-COM 2 - 2019 Campaign Thread

The mood among some of the team may be grim at the senseless deaths and the cruelty of the occupiers... but Vic? Vic's all business, and soon after the team had come back, he's fiddling with the camera's primitive editing mode every spare moment he gets, trying to splice his footage with the news br...

Re: X-COM 2 - 2019 Campaign Thread

"It's a funny thing, you know," mused Victor in one of his thoughtful moments, which were many. "We get down to that age old question. Is there a god?" "Now," he goes on, gesturing with his cigarette. "It's easy to say no. But nots of people say yes. And that's worth exploring. Lots of folk say ther...

Re: Conversation at the Old Beard Tavern, middark Tarsakh 5

Dermot gives a heavy sigh, rubbing his face. "Y'know. There are times, Aerikoth, every now and again. When you do a thing that ain't quite honourable. I didn't think we were implicating anyone, til tonight." He sucks his teeth. "If we do this, then assuming we survive, it feels fair that we do what ...

Re: X-COM 2 - 2019 Campaign Thread

One thing you could say for ADVENT - medical technologies on Earth had leapt forward by decades, if not a century or more - as well as the availability of it all. It was ADVENT's oft-trumpeted great success, in fact... the establishment of the gene therapy clinics, steadily working to scrub away hum...

Re: X-COM 2 - 2019 Campaign Thread

"What we're fighting might have changed," Vic says, from nearby. "But if you ask me, lots of things haven't. What's right, what's wrong, what's real, what's a lie." He fiddles with the small circuit board on the table. "We might not be wise or smart enough to see it, but it never changed. These thin...
