888th Brigade: The day of the Medic.
« on: May 13, 2017, 07:26:21 pm »

888th Brigade


Greetings. My name is Brigadier General Franklin S. Bone. And from now till this war is won, or they return our remains to our respective mothers, you belong to me. This is the 888th Brigade; we handle the jobs that no one else can. Or more often, the jobs no one else wants. We don't follow the standard chain of command, we don't follow the standard brigade setup, and we don't follow someone else into battle. We are the first boots on the beach, the first men through the breach, and the only mad sons of bitches ready, willing, and able to go anywhere and do anything at a moment's notice.  Some of you here are blind patriots with a hatred for Hitler and the Nazis that borders on the fetishistic. Some of you are specialists, plying your considerable skills. Some of you are madmen, idiots, or trouble makers that pissed off some commander and got dumped here to die. And die many of you will.

I will not lie to you: there is no fame nor glory here. Our actions are secret, by and large, the sort of thing no one will ever know of. And I won't try to con you into the vain hope of trading your life for some tin medal. I offer you only this: Without men like you, we will lose this war and the world will be plunged into chaos. Carry that in your hearts and walk forward into hell with no regrets!

And leave your dogtags at the door.  If I can't identify your body, I don't care. And if I CAN, then you better still be shooting at some Krauts. The only way out of my brigade is when they ship you home in a shoe box!

DISMISSED!

(1) You start forward with determination and certainty. You carry this determination with you right into the gaping crater that opens under your feet. You fall into a pit. The sounds of combat above dim, along with the light from the suns. In the quiet below, you hear some other noises instead.

HMR stands for Hazardous Materials Requisition, not Horrible Massive Ruination, though I can understand how one could get confused.
God help us if we have to agree on pizza toppings at some point. There will be no survivors.

Looks like we got ourselves a medic and a demo-man.

Oh look, I have a steam account.
Might as well chalk it up to Pathos.
As this point we might as well invoke interpretive dance and call it a day.

Hey, I wonder if a female character even makes sense in this setting! Not that failure to make sense has ever stopped me.

(I mean if you actually care for historical context for soldier gender representation for WW2, than it was essentially around 99 to 1 for males. Pretty much most female soldiers during this war was either French Resistance Fighters or Russian Snipers/Militia.)

Yes, I know that we already have a crazy demoman. You can never have enough crazy demomen, though, and this one's a ninja as well.

In terms of if you can play women or not: Do whatever you want, I don't care. the 888th is an oddball brigade anyways.
