Psych! Thor was hiding behind some people and moved over to take a shot. His burst cuts down the snake and he reloads his gun.
A cryssie runs up! Pete fires, Pete misses. BB, however, does not. His laser blast drops the little bastard in only one hit. Suddenly, a snakeman comes out of the shadows. He shoulders a plasma rifle and guns Pete down! Noooooo! Thorondor returns fire and drops his ass!
Another cryss shows up, Thor stuns it....we do NOT want that thing to get back up.....BB! Throw in that det pack!
Moments later, a grenade lands next to Pete's corpse. He is incenerated in the blast. We start scouting to find out what happened and we see an unarmed snakeman standing in that same area across the park.... Thor! Finish him!
Well well well...look who decided to rejoin the party! Tycho gets up and staggers back into cover.
Jman spots yet another cryssie moving in on our position....These things have got to be breeding... He draws down on it with his laser pistol and cuts it down in two bursts!
A snake moves up and fires on us! Luckily it misses and retreats back out of range. Thor however, doesn't have this issue. He takes out the snake, and his crablike buddy in two bursts!
Suddenly, another snake comes at us from the far west...Luckily, Tycho is there to react to it, and somehow hit it despite being COMPLETELY out of his mind on painkillers!
Jman catches another snake trying to sneak around to our flank using the warehouse as cover. He reacts and guns the poor sap down...better luck next time.
And yet another cryssie shows up!...and somehow Tycho manages to get another kill with his 5 health and head full of drugs..
We hear the sounds of indescriminent plasma fire in the distance. It's about 9 shots, and no civilian screaming. I think someone is going nuts over there because we've been slaughtering all his buddies!
BB spots another alien move up on us. He cuts it down with laser fire!
We hear it again...We move on the alien's position and BB guns him down!
That...was a fierce battle. 2 dead, 3 wounded. Thor is the only person that won't be in the infirmary for weeks...Congrats Silencer! You got Pete's rank! Go you!
AmeriCom Base, this is Thorondor. Standby for incoming wounded!
Well, our elite strike squad is shot to hell...Thor is the only one still on his feet. Looks like we won't be hitting that base in Canada for a while..
This Thorondor clone is a total beast...He's got 26 kills and only 7 missions under his belt. His stats are also through the roof. Accuracy and strength are up about 20 and reactions up over 10! Jman somehow lucked out and is only out for 16 days...While BB is out for nearly a month! Tycho, however, barely made it home alive, and his recovery time reflects this...36 days! Also, we clone another Pete, and this Pete will be better than the other 4!
