Roll To Redshirt
« on: December 28, 2012, 06:43:56 pm »

You are redshirts.
To cut a long story short, the galaxy is at war, and suddenly every single warring faction invented cloning machines at the same time. Thanks to something that I can't be bothered to think up, each faction's clones wear different coloured uniforms. Yours are red.
    So now you have to fight your way across the galaxy at the whim of your human masters. On the bright side, if you die, the cloneomaticclonemaker3.568392791 will create an exact replica of you so you can carry on fighting. Unfortunately, logistics and supply problems mean a limited number of clones can be made.

Anyway, your first mission is to take an enemy defence line on Gvatriz 3 from a resource-starved army of Blueshirts. 400 Redshirts against 250 Blues. No armour support, unfortunately.


The first person to post an action will be the boss/chief/commander/ whatever. He gets a nice shiny sword and machine pistol.
The second person to post an action will be THE SARGE. He gets grenades and a SMG.
Everyone else is a grunt. They get a Standard Rifle.
What are you waiting for? Post your actions!

(( basically a large scale team death match. May remind you of Exkirby's Redshirt Army.
First post/action in the morning.))

Be the squad medic.
Use medigun or other appropriate medical tools on nearest injured squadmate.

Set phaser to kill, avoid aliens, ambush blueshirt patrols

Clearly running multiple missions at the same time is a terrible idea.  The epic battle to see which team can cock it up worse has escalated again.

And Larry kinda gets blueballed in all this; just left with a raging bone spear and no where to put it.

Provide covering fire for the reds.

At the start of the battle for Gvatriz 3...
                  400 REDSv250 BLUS.

Scapheap dives for cover! (4) leaping behind a handy tank trap.
Corai follows and provides cover fire! (5) who needs cover fire? Two blues fall down riddled with bullets.
Kingquest tries more primal tactics! (5) you run up and dine on the first couple of blues you can see, completely terrifying the others.
Persus is a traitor! (4) he shoots Corai, who was in the way.
GWG is the medic! (6) he shoots Corai so hard with the medi-gun that although the gunshot wound is healed, Corai's head is blown off.
Unholy requests a phaser! (5) he gets one! He then avoids nonexistent aliens and shoots down a careless blue who walked by.
Doomblade provides covering fire! (6) his fire is super effective. Pity a ricochet caught Unholy in the head.((phaser up for the taking. Also Corai's gear))
Irony tries to hide behind kingquest! (2) he stands in the open looking like a moron.
Pufferfish tries to dig a foxhole! (1) he brains himself with Marv.

BLUE REACTION: (5-3)
Blue 1 opens fire! (4) he nails Irony in the heart.
Blue 2 runs for safety! (4) he leaps behind an armoured wall.

End turn status:
                    495REDSv246BLUS.

(( firstly, instant respawns.
Secondly, Persus is now a blue for status reports.))

Request rocket launcher. Open fire on Blus either way.
