I nearly got out with the full team (when I pulled the pin everyone was still drawing breath), but lost one guy to a misread/misclick (he had "Close and Personal" and I swear he was within the 4 block trigger zone, had a shot and then... couldn't move  Angry, and lost another guy in the evac zone, everyone was in there one one b***ard charges into the evac zone and rips him in half and then the ride arrives.

Vague post to avoid spoilers (although not sure it can be spoiled after 5(?) years, I've managed to avoid them more or less which means I'm still getting surprised by stuff, which is good)

I'm not particularly musically minded; what's the tune?

(as an aside, what's with all the capital letters in the middle of words these days.... /oldpersonrant)

Can someone who is going - with Crafty's permission, of course - record/video the SpyCraft workshop and upload it? Pretty please with the ruins of The Shop on top?

I believe you're the one inserting the capitals, my friend. It's officially "Spycraft." Smiley

We have no issue with folks recording the workshops. You can only participate, however, with a ticket. (Gen Con's rules.)
Good to know (on both counts  Grin )

Players generally believe anything in a room with them is a level-appropriate encounter. Visual cues to the contrary may need to be unsubtle.
A hundred, thousand, million times this. "This is not a fight we can win right now" is not something that crosses most players' minds....

Also, damn Morg, I like your storytelling style. Would love to play in one of your games sometime....

I'm not in any hurry to see it, so cam you spoil me about what exactly happens with Janet?
Off thread please, going to see it in a few days Smiley

Well that was incoherent. It's full of dark 'n gritty visuals (Hooray!) and sod-all else.

(Disclaimer: I always thought Suicide Squad was dumb.)

That is truly terrifying  Shocked

I love you guys.
If you could sneak one Koala pic in there somewhere (maybe even as "background" but holding something that looks suspiciously like a piece of tech...) that would be EPIC  Grin

That looks from start to finish like the work of the PR department. I've never seen him looking that cute or happy.

I did try to tell him it wasn't climbing rope. What I can't figure out is that he was only climbing down 200 feet of cliff, and the explosion wasn't big enough for all 500 feet. I guess what we don't know...

Since you guys are the closest thing I know to experts Smiley

Have been playing Enemy Within (with Elite Soldier and Slingshot). Got a few questions if y'all don't mind:

  • I've just finished researching Meld (it's early) and have to choose between augments and MECs. I know how FREAKIN COOL MEC's are, but from the description of the augments they're just better; what's the prevailing opinion here?
  • Again, it's early, but no one on my team has been promoted beyond Squaddie yet, even one guy who has been with me since the start (except for one mission where he was wounded) and has 7 kills. How frequently do people get promoted?
  • On the last mission one of my guys (the one mentioned in the point above actually) got wounded then healed in the same mission (Medpack), but is still spending time in the hospital after the mission, even though he was on full health at the end of the mission. I was hoping Medpacks would avoid hospital stays; are they worth using?
  • I have all of the "Second Wave" options turned on, 'cos they all seem pretty fun. What settings do most people use/not use?
Thanks folks Smiley

(Last plug, I promise)

Uploaded the final mission for my Invisible, Inc playthrough last night. Playlist is here:

Viperion plays Invisible Inc

Ended up being just less than 6 hours for the playthrough which is pretty good for $20 Cheesy
