Two people that Aig always drags into these damn things.  Seems like Egan might've finally wizened up and stopped joining, though.

Spoiler: Charsheet (click to show/hide)

Action, to hurry things along: Find public area with lots of people.  Yell an incoherent speech at the people, about the invading illegal aliens, and scream about how the citizenry must rise up and fight them off.

Glass is, as usual, correct.
Yep, as ever, I bestow upon Glass the expected +1
I'm gonna say we go with whatever Glass's idea is.

Well, if nobody's making a demolitions-oriented person..

I'm requisitioning another 380 heavy autocannon bullets, bringing the total up to 1000, 4 satchels and a demopack of C4, and a javelin with two AT missiles, for a total of $494,000.

They'll probably be needed.

Regarding the lasrifles (because I was just thinking about them), with their whole "shoot a pulse" deal: not only are they basically "point and shoot" because there's no bullet drop and the projectiles move at light speed, but anyone looking at the shot would likely either see a beam (due to IT'S REALLY FAST) or just nothing at all, other than the aftermath (also due to IT'S REALLY FAST). Am I interpreting this correctly?

EDIT: Torir, Trump put in their purchases "a lot of hand grenades". Don't worry too too much.

I'm not expecting frag grenades to work against an alien tank, or whatever we'd need to use 80kg of C4 on.

Count me in.

Spoiler (click to show/hide)

Enclosed in the spoiler are some facts about obsidian over stainless steel for scalpels (I did my research) so you know there mechanics, its in spoiler so you don't have to read it if you don't want to, but it is short.

Tell me what cost you think an obsidian scalpel should be please. Call it an improvised melee weapon I can also use for research.

I want to cram what we know about alien biology and technology before the mission.

Don't worry too much about the one mistake, Smoke Mirrors. Your character was memorable for all the demonology and story writing.

Iím running a game/mechanics test called Fate/Mechanics Test. Feel free to check it out.

Added.

Also, modern "gunpowder" is a mix of Nitroglycerine type compounds with RDX plastic explosives. The RDX is added to increase the explosion velocities I believe.

Explosive bullets are banned under the geneva conventions. The limit is anything smaller than 20mm cannon rounds are not allowed to have explosive charges or have mechanisms that cause expanded wound cavities. This is ignored for 12.7mm rounds, which claims to be anti-materiel. This is also ignored in law enforcement.

I suppose we can tinker fancy bullets though. But I think against well defended targets you want something with more punch, not a firecracker.

We'll embark soonish.

Never ever cease communication with your enemies, never ever cease interaction with them, never isolate yourself from them. Never ignore them, relish the time to deal with them, to exercise banter. The biggest mistake one can make is ignoring one's enemies. Go out of your way to pick a fight today.

With a normal sniper rifle (i.e. with normal bullets, not lasers), do some target practice at 700 meters, with moving targets, and a fog machine on. Because firing practice.

BTW, I failed to mention this, but Nox is from Ukraine.

Try to get corporate sponsorship.
