-Diamond (birth name unknown), [F] Canadian Ranger
"They'll never know what hit 'em."
(click to show/hide)
Diamond earned her nickname in training for being an extreme hardass and was not well liked by her squad mates. She was recruited during the first alien war but XCom was overrun while her transport was enroute to the base. Rather than capitulate to the aliens, the transport set down in a remote location where the pilot and new recruits made a pact of their own. XCom may have been beaten, but the fight was far from over.



I want to add a few more that were on that same transport. They've been covertly undermining Advent for the last 20 years before they learned about XCom's renewed activity.

How did he get his eye back?

Could just be a Critical Injury (Head Trauma, half visual range), which would heal up in 1d4 months.

Or maybe the halfling on the cover of the Fantasy Craft book was from a scene as told by the halfling on the cover of the Adventure with obvious embellishments.



Halfling: "So there I was, battered, beaten and broken, my eye mangled beyond repair. But the giant, oh yes, the giant, he fared far worse."

Child: <raising hand> "Um, um, if your eye was gone, how come you still have it now?"

Halfing: "Quiet kid, I'm telling a story here. Suddenly, there was a blood-curdling roar as a creature descended from on high . . ."

Other Child: "But how could you see where it was . . ."

Halfling: <interupting> "I only lost one eye kid, now be quiet. Now where was I? Oh yes, as a creature descended from on high intent on finishing us all."

Well, the silver lining for me is it won't conflict with Fallout 4 when it comes out.

Unless they delay that release, too. (glares menacingly at Bethesda)

Mathias shrugged and said to Juridius, "When faced with Sephaltes' Riddle, one needs to first gather more information. I suggest we each do what we are best at and find what we can. If body paint and swimming is not your thing, perhaps you and I can track down Dacidus?"

"Other than procuring supplies, I'm afraid I won't be much help in the water so while you guys work on that, I'll track down Dacidus, see if I can worm any information out of him." Mathias rose from his position leaning against the railing. "And please, try not to kill anyone. Clearing your names at trial will be a lot cheaper without having to overcome a murder charge."

Between this and Fallout 4 I think I am just taking December off.

The family will just have to do without me at the holidays this year.
Don't forget the expansion to Civilization: Beyond Earth...  I might make it back in time for Valentine's Day.

Civ V and Civ: BE were 2 games I really wanted to like but just couldn't so I didn't realize BE had an expansion in the pipeline.

But some of my friends play it, so when they disappear at the end of the year . . . ah, who an I kidding. I won't notice because I'll be playing XCom 2, but at least that means they won''t miss me either.

I hate playing the better gear game. It's pretty much what killed every MMO ever for me. I also don't like dealing with it for tabletop games.

As a GM, once the players start asking for sale prices of items and selling loot, I just pack up my stuff because I know the rest of the night is going to consist of me watching them pour over price lists of items, answering questions about what is available and them buying stuff.

As a player, I get bored looking through price lists, so I tend to just add my treasure cut to my sheet where it accumulates over time until my character becomes more or less useless every 4 or 5 levels. Then I begrudgingly buy some items to make my character viable while being annoyed that 80% of my character's effectiveness stems from the gear he is carrying.

"You're a saint, Darius. You just saved me a couple hours of legwork."

With that, Mathias took his leave and headed to the Harbor Master's office to meet up with his companions.

Mathias nodded at Darius. "If you could, I'd really appreciate it."

Mathias thanked the man and started to leave when a thought struck him and he paused. "Darius, you wouldn't happen to know who captains that ship by any chance, would you?"

"I need to speak with a man I know at the Teamster's Guild. If anything has been moved off the ship, someone there may know about it. You guys want to try identifying the ship officers? Then we can reconvene outside the harbor masters office and plan our next course of action in, say, 1 hour?"

I am going to go see my Prize Contact, Darius, the boss of the teamsters guild.

There's a good chance someone in the teamster's guild would have either helped with or witnessed any movement of cargo on or off that ship. In addition, I can ask him to watch the ship in the near future for any signs of suspicious activity while doing their normal jobs.

On the way there, I am going to ask Cathal, my personal lieutenant, if he knows anything of this "Agrates Aesopos, former Praefectus Castrorum of Legion Olegea". Cathal's fought with the Imperial Legions for the last several decades. If this Agrates has any kind of reputation, there's a chance he has heard of him.

XCOM 2 - Let's Play meets gamescom Livestream 2015

The video's a fustercluck.  Basically they were supposed to do a let's play, but something went wrong, so we got this improv interview, which was made worse because we had to go back and forth between English and German.

Yea, hard to watch but not without a couple of gems. In addition to the part you spoilered, one of the features mentioned is that, with time, you can respec your soldiers.
