Toonces' nickname should be "Lord Budda".  :D

I love some of the names. 'Brant the Downtrodden' and 'Jason the Unsilent' made me chuckle.

Tee-hee!

LOL - surprised "I" won because my avatar apparently sucks. :)

I appreciate your tenacity in turning him into a fighter.

7. THUNDER OF INFERNO

The dropship lands, and the squad tumbles out of the back.



They find themselves in some industrial/warehouse district. No doubt the aliens are after cheap imports and GameStop paraphernalia.



There's no resistance in the landing zone.

Kari Pederson, our Swedish representative (no relation to the Swedish Bikini Team), is instructed to enter the closest building.



She does so, but the first room is empty.

Except for the noticeable large scorch mark in the cheap linoleum. Someone had a bad ending to their day, there.

The others sweep around the side of the building as Kari busts into the larger room, though there's nobody home.



Toonces takes point, moving to the corner of the building, and finds a couple of interstellar squatters.



They look like they're about to drop the hottest album of 2018, yo.

Instead of staying in the pose, the lead singer screeches like a skinned cat (or one of mirth's barfly dates), and they scatter to cover.



Meanwhile, Toonces immediately ran back and up a ladder, taking cover behind an HVAC unit on the roof, directly above Kari.

One of the Aliens spotted him.

He said, "this is for ruining our promo shoot!" which came out more like, "EEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE" or something.



Toonces girded up his sphincter as the thing raised its Tonka-Toy-looking pip boy thingy, and...



PEW PEW PEW PEW

Missed! Though that HVAC is totally f**ked.

"Motherf**ker," hissed Toonces as the HVAC merrily hissed and melted due to being pushed well past its preferred melting point.

"EAT MEEEE!" he shouted, as he raised his heavy machinegun to take aim at one of the little gray boogers and went all Sgt. Rock style on his narrow ass.



BUDDA BUDDA BUDDA BUDDA BUDDA BUDDA BUDDA BUDDA BUDDA BUDDA BUDDA BUDDA BUDDA BUDDA BUDDA BUDDA BUDDA BUDDA BUDDA BUDDA BUDDA
SPLAT SPLISH SPOOSH SCREEEEECH



The alien fell over, embarking upon his new career as a coffee table with built-in drink holders (about a hundred of them).

Meanwhile, Pederson checks out the remaining turd bucket and sees she only has a small chance (31%) of nailing it as it is behind good cover.



Despite the relatively low chance, she just witnessed Toonces' God-Among-Mankind blasting of that other alien into gobbets of greenish slobber, and she wants in on the action, too!



Unfortunately, the piece of crap rifle that X-COM was saddled with, which was incidentally supplied from the lowest bidder from the finest sweatshops in New Jersey, failed to make her hit her target.

And...and...and...and...WTF is that in the foreground? Those little alien bastards cocooning people?

Only WE can turn people into Soylent Green!

we fulfill our second regional championship by sending Bob the Nutter against Decius the Bringer of Doom



Decius brings his gardening equipment, and his fancy fighting clothes but forgets the doom - its all over and theres only one more fight to qualify for the big rumble in Rome



Here he is - Spurius of Sparta, i may have overestimated these regional contests - Gus has 10x the agility and strength and 4x the damage output

It doesnt last long - 3 seconds actually, 'Fight' stab, hack, slash - done, he's back in the ludus for tea and crumpets before theyve cleaned up the mess



The party event triggers again - i opt for nothing as i hate the magistrate and im not paying him anything



and it works



Out of despair and sympathy i send in Banzai against a man in his pants carrying a stick. Banzai has lost every demonstration match he's been in, im trying to get him up to speed i really am, but if the game hamstrings certain gladiators then Banzai is our man.



He wins, thank the gods - i will make a fighter out of him



Its the eve of the national championship, Gus is oiled and ready, never defeated, in fact in the last 3 fights he hasnt even been hit. To sell him would quadruple the ludus annual turnover, but hes our man!!



Oooo fk...................

6. THE WEEPING OF THE RIVER

After poking around the small base, Seamus calls me in again.



He's just there to tell me something I've forgotten already, but I think it has to do with satellites. These provide coverage of the panicky member nations and ensure a flow of cash to X-Com's coffers.

And then our first alert comes through.



Kinky Aliens are looking to test out some Venusian lube or something, I guess, because they're raiding two locations simultaneously.

We can't get them both; not at this stage in the game.

So the game presents me with a choice: save one or the other.

The first raid is on Guag...uhh...Goob...uhm...yeah, a place in China...



...and the other is in Houston, Texas.



HMMMMMM. Which to choose.

Honestly Houston could do with some abductions, which would mean less traffic on the roads.

China's pretty overcrowded too but I've never been to Gulag, or whatever, so...

There's also the rewards to consider, if it boils down to it. China's mission rewards us with $200 (not USD, just some weird Simolean-looking currency that I guess only X-COM uses...like Bitcoin, but shadier), while the U.S. mission would reward us with four Scientists.

Research is more important right now to me - I really need to get that body armor on the troopers - so I choose Houston.

Next, I have to go to the Barracks to check out Toonces' squad.



It's all women. Which isn't a bad thing, just means I can't really rename them for the moment.

I knew going in to this I wouldn't be renaming EVERYONE to be senior-ish forum members, because we'd run out of senior-ish forum members pretty damned fast considering how this game likes to kill us.



Their loadouts are all the same, pretty much. Since they're squeaky-clean Squaddies, they just come with the rifles; they don't have an assignment like Support or Sniper. Only Toonces has a specialist job.

After a quick review and leaving this default squad intact, they load up on the dropship and head out.



I track them until they arrive in Houston.

Funny how the flight only takes a couple of hours.



OPERATION BLOODY PROPHET.

What a way to kick things off.

Unfortunately I do not have that expansion, and since you said you think the expansion is not compatible with this version, I'll just keep truckin' with this one.

Just to be clear, not only has it been a while since I've played this, I never finished it.
