XCOM: Enemy Within -- Your Character!

So, in raidcall I was having fun, yelling out the crazy things I was doing with characters that were named certain players' toons here.

And admittedly, that made it so much more fun. For example, I used Kiive to try to rescue a civilian. Here's what happened -- said civilian was standing next to a vehicle. By killing the Alien next to the civilian, Kiive set the car on fire. She saved the civilian: yaaaay! Car blows up, kills civilian ANYWAY. D'awww.

So next game, I place Kiive next to a Chrysallid. Said alien not only tears her throat out... but turns her into a Zombie. Just my luck. I survive. There are other shenanigans. Telline, for example, is a Robot. Iaera was a shotgun psionic... that, due to the way things went, had her Will lowered to... extremely low (43).

I know I'm not alone in playing this game -- but for those of you who don't and actually want your character designed the way you feel the way would be incarnated in this game, please don't hesitate to tell me. Otherwise, I'm making your character anyway and playing it anyway I like. >.>

Some quick info;

5 classes;

MEC Trooper (robot)
Support (medics, mostly but they fill different roles as well)
Assault (with shotguns)
Heavy (with a rocket launcher and light machine guns)
Sniper (with... oh come on, this one's obvious!)

There's also psionics -- for this, I'm using it for Force Sensitivity.



So come on. If you want to know more about the game, I'm sure there's a wiki out there. If you're in Raidcall, give me a yell. I'll keep this thread updated as to the shenanigans I get up to and stuff that happens.
Heads up! Most of my roleplay is done over Discord!

coz all dey skill best from 4 tyls away. No, seriously. If I put Iaera in the same crap I put Kiive in my first game, she'd actually eat all dem Chrysallids. >.>

can you make taelios one of your characters?
No.

Not just one. God, Tae that one's obvious! I should make a Fluffy, too...yiiis. A fluffy that rancorsmashes everything.

So uhhh... Kiive died in this one. So I'm gonna see if I can salvage it and win it and get my achievements. Then I'll do it properly and get all the people in on it. :o

Iaera was a shotgun psionic...

I'm all set to post about this is now officially a thing, then I get to this...

iaera's call sign is 'slutbomb,' i trust.

and I LOSE it.
I knew some of the Palace history, but not the bit about Jaade crashing that barge. That's good lore, right there.  :grin:

This sounds hilarious. I don't play XCOM myself though I have lots of friends and colleagues who do.

Hrm. If you made Reithan >.> I imagine he would be... Assault, with psionics of course. Feel free to make his callsign 'Prettyboy' or even just 'Hey you!' .

Aolanni would be a psionic medic :D

My drawing was not of a hat.

Yena, sniper. 'Cause she's badass at heart. Call sign YarnHarlot.*



--------------------------------------
*Not to be confused with Stephanie Pearl-McPhee who's a lovely individual and a fantastic knitter who has nothing to do with Yena or her player.

Hmm... Saber would probably be assault or heavy... Depends on the armor really...

Maybe assault and pick up a perk. So you can also be immune to critical hits. The only thing that you won't be immune to is strangulation! Unless you want implants on Saberlain. In which case...

Immunity to everything.

Edit:

Oh, small update. Saving the world is... taking longer. For those playing this, never ever play Ironman Classic+ with the following Second Wave options enabled:
  • Damage Roulette
  • Aiming Angles
  • Absolutely Critical

I have a 75% Rookie/Squaddie fatality rate. There's over 20 names on my memorial wall. There's something so.... profoundly wrong about a Sectoid hitting your well-geared soldiers and scoring a crit of 11 (few things can survive such owiness.)
