Promtheus explained.
Good way to kill 28 minutes, with good research as well.

Of the many soldiers lost over the months of warfare special recognition is given to Colonel Marie "Hazard" Dumont (Germany) whose last-ditch assault slew the Ethereal controlling the mind of Colonel Anne "Black Widow" Gray (Sweden). Colonel Dumont was slain by a Muton Elite seconds later, but her sacrifice permitted Colonel Gray to dispatch the commanding Ethereal with a directed plasma discharge to it's cranium.

Colonel Gray remained onboard to direct the imploding Temple Ship out of the atmosphere, and as such will be honored both for her sacrifice as well as being the last casualty of the alien incursion.

Representing X-Com will be Cesar "Sledge" Ramirez (Mexico) and Brittany "Pixie" Woods (USA), the two longest serving soldiers at 29 missions each and 101 (69/32) slain enemy combatants between them.

So concludes the X-Com project.

1) I have things to say, and hopefully will.

2) This is also an excellent topic.

3) I have now met the other person who liked Battle: Los Angeles. Cool Wicked.

Heh. That's someone I owe quite the debt of affection to. RIP, sir. You peddled the most enjoyable sweets of all.

I would love to do a co-op multiplayer campaign.
Or even cooperative skirmishes. Cool

Well that'd be dependent on how accurate a setting's Divination's are.
I don't know much about FC's divinatory options, personally.

Forgotten Realms has The Mythal, a city-sized permanent magical field formerly found on elven cities at their empire's apex. They are very powerful effects (quasi-deific) that do things like reactive Feather Fall on anyone falling more then 5 feet. Or that anyone not Evil aligned who dies in the mythal has their spirit caught in it for an hour with the intent of letting them say goodbye to anyone beloved while they could. Or they bar incorporeal undead from entering.
Or more precisely all of those effects, and a few more.

So something like that.
Each participating city has a similar effect, but the way the spell is defined it generates a lot of "false positives" to a degree that easily overwhelms conventional law enforcement services. It detects and categorizes acts of violence by rough severity, for example, but doesn't discriminate based on intent. Maybe it picks up Alignment-based Interests (possibly generating more false signals) but it can't tell you anything about who the person with the interest is.

How the information is communicated is another issue, of course.

In unrelated news:  Space Hulk is on sale for 16 more hours.

I saw.
Reviews were mixed though, and I've about had my threshold of Space Marine stuff.
I'm interested, but the price has a little more dropping to do.

To weigh in: I like the idea for getting into stat-minimum Expert classes.
I recently made an FC character aimed at getting into Force of Nature, but I struggled with the 13 Con requirement for having a -2 Con from my Origin.
Part of that is also how I weigh stats, and Constitution is just too low-value for me as it just affects a very small handful of elements that are also altered by externalities (low v/w? better armor!). 

Anything to ameliorate that would be welcome.

Echo for the win, Alex.

Oh yeah.
Cool, thanks for the head's up.
Jeremy Scahill's Dirty Wars is also very informing for them wanting to know more about the covert drone strikes the U.S. is sponsoring.

Jett nods along, absently checking her sheathes and bandoliers and pouches, tightening straps and shifting loads around incrementally as she listens.

"Find or avenge Mira. That I understand."

She taps a drawn knife against her lips thoughtfully, increasingly animated.

"Before action; reconnaissance. And maps. We need maps."

"Tuku, Mina; can you find out if anything's changed in Auntie's business? Has she shifted interest into a new area or trade or anything? Having even a rough guess at what's she after is a good start. It'd be good to know what areas she controls as well. Where she's strongest, and what that strength will look like when it's used."

Turning to Herr Grimm and Markus, Jett adds:

"If we can avoid leading a mob here is there any problem with using this church as base? Are there any...uh...unusual traits to it? Hidden areas? Extra basements? Sub-street accesses? What is the island stone like? Is Shinju built atop anything? It would be good to know what the land is like beneath the port."

"This is starting a skirmish that could become a war, and we should prepare accordingly."

"War. Always war. The wind blows, and I taste ash."

With that pronouncement Jett slips the dagger back into it's sheath, and become still again.

Let's see what he's got.

I was too ADD to figure out if I could transfer posts, so scorch and plant instead. Tongue

Also: finally bagged a Sectoid Commander. TzzzzzAP! Evil
