Thank you, it looks great, I figured Bosnia wouldn't be in the list, it rarely is, but Ukraine works too. The character looks great, I like the tattoo and the gun color. I hope he is useful in the campaign. Looking forward to see how it progresses.
Can't wait to see how we do! We will fight to the last soldier to defeat the ADVENT Project. Fight well, Commander.Alright everyone, today's the final day of signups. I'll be adding the last entries tonight and then I'm kicking off the campaign in earnest on Monday. If you've already submitted a character, feel free to make one more. @PCG James I'm waiting for your character, hope you still feel like getting in on the action!
Here's what you can expect from the campaign once we start: I will be posting at least once a week, which is probably the most I'm going to manage for the first few weeks. I work full-time and go to night school on the side, for which I have exams coming up in two weeks. I will have to take some extra free time to study.
At the start of the campaign, in-game events happen a little more frequently and tactical missions are fairly brief, so I'll likely cover two or three deployments in a single post. That's about 2-3 weeks of in-game time. After a few in-game months the tactical layer will get more complex and missions can sometimes take multiple hours to complete, so the pace will slow down a bit. At the end of each entry, I'll provide a little summary to explain how the campaign is doing on a macro level and update the roster on page 1 to reflect any changes in the squad.
Realistically, the campaign will take me multiple months to complete. I will try to post as consistently as possible to keep interest going. I can't promise we will actually win the game, but we are damn well going to try! I'm very excited to start and I hope the whole endeavour is going to be a great success, because I'm already kicking around some ideas for a possible series 2!
You guys ready to kick ass and chew bubblegum?!
Uh oh, faceless already?? Godspeed, soldiers.Thanks for the kind words, everybody! I spent pretty much the entire Monday playing, making notes and then writing the piece. It was super fun and I'm thrilled that you guys seem to enjoy it so much! I want to say I'm going to get the next installment out on Monday, if all goes well.
I hit one little snag along the way: not every character I currently control in the campaign is one of ours, a few are just randoms. I think that happened because I didn't start with at least 25 unique, named characters. It's fine, I'm going to either not use them at all or turn them into some of @Johnway's unused entries. Or yours, if anyone wants to send in a second character. The other characters should start showing up over time.
I've already been playing a bit more and making notes for the next chapter, so I'll just drop a little tease here.
Also, would you guys enjoy animated gifs at all? I honestly have no idea how I would make those, but wouldn't it be awesome to see some of those sweet, glorious kills in motion?!
