Re: X-COM 2 - 2019 Campaign Thread

A torrent of emotion flooded through Jesse' mind. Disbelief; confusion; despair. Most of all, though, there was rage. Searing, red-hot rage. "You fucking coward!" She didn't remember drawing her gun, but there it was, right in her hand. "You absolute moron! What the hell do you think they'll do to y...

Re: X-COM 2 - 2019 Campaign Thread

"I don't fucking know!" Jesse said, fuming. "All I know is we got screwed, and we don't know enough to understand why, alright? Angela'll probably figure out more. I... I hope. Gaah!" She ran a hand through her hair in frustration; turned back to the others with an expression of misery. "You almost ...

Re: X-COM 2 - 2019 Campaign Thread

((I'm guessing Jess has the highest Craft Mech and Stan has the highest Craft Chem, so we probably want to split them up as leads. So Jesse/Bo and Stan/Ibrahim? If we get two types of ammo, at least one of them should be for the rifles, since we've got closet to zero. The other, I'm not sure. We've ...

Re: X-COM 2 - 2019 Campaign Thread

Shortly after the squad's meeting with the mysterious stranger, Jesse found herself tapping on Bo's shoulder. There was a frown on her face, making for an unpleasant collision with her burn scars. "So, uh, I know this isn't really your kind of thing, but... ugh." She sighed, rubbed her forehead, and...

Re: X-COM 2 - 2019 Campaign Thread

" Careful only gets us so far," Jesse muttered as she sorted the stripped parts of one of the busted rifles they'd retrieved. "What are you supposed to do when the enemy's so far ahead, huh? When they've got spaceships and we're lucky to have guns with only a little bit of rust on 'em. Right now, we...

Re: X-COM 2 - 2019 Campaign Thread

"Of course it's a dumb idea," Jesse mutters from the back seat. "It's just that trying to bash in some ganger skulls is also a bad idea. So we're checking out this other place to figure out which idea's the least dumb." She blinks and squints as she follows Victor's eye. "And nah, I don't think that...

Re: X-COM 2 - 2019 Campaign Thread

"He's a coward," Jesse muttered, wrist-deep in some electronic scrap she grabbed from the workshop. "Would've been happy just hiding away in his little nest the rest of his life. With his nice dog and his cow . I bet he even had milk ." She spoke of these things as if they represented some unspeakab...

Re: X-COM 2 - 2019 Campaign Thread

In spite of everyone's assurances, Jess clearly blamed herself for the mission going south. She should have been more careful; listened to her head instead of the adrenaline coursing through her veins. She could have gotten them all killed , for god's sake. As a matter of penance, she secluded herse...

Re: X-COM 2 - 2019 Campaign Thread

Jess couldn't stop shaking for hours after the mission. Not out of terror or anxiety or anything like that, but out of sheer excitement. It felt so good to be doing something. She'd grown used to hiding; scrounging; just surviving . Having an actual mission , though - a cause - that was new, and it ...

Re: X-COM 2 - 2019 Campaign Thread

Mostly-clean sheets. Canned food. Concrete walls. A roof over her head, and enough people around to keep her from going crazy. People who — at first glance, at least — weren’t complete idiots. Not all of them, anyway. Used to be, this was all she’d dream of. A little hole to hide in. A place to feel...
