Cool, I did find the film memorable and surprisingly poetic, something like John Carpenter meets Tim Burton (or Edgar Poe).
But it's *very* graphic at times, not for the weak stomachs.

I've seen worse, but, well, it is a horror movie after all. :)

What about a discreet inside jokes, in one of the early Dagon topics ?
"We don't know what's really taking place there, but it's definitely fishy."

Totally using this!

Ha!

I thought the cult of Dagon was based off of the two Lovecraft stories of Shadow over Innsmouth and Dagon So an adaptation of a story to a movie to a video game.

Exactly! I mean I read these stories before I saw the movie, but I think the movie was more directly influential - that's why Dagon is active in western Europe, for instance.

I think I'll release an update now... Everyone should see the new dossiers! And then let's make even more!

Thanks I'll try to fit him in. I'll just need to find a picture and hopefully tweak it a little to find a reason why X-Com would be interested in him... Oh wait, I think I have it already.

EDIT: How about this?

Thanks a million, I'll add these great guys to the Pedia.

Ivan, what exactly is Sparta Engineering? Because this guy would work great with M.A.G.M.A.!

Cmdr. Stryker, so... his affiliation is classified? What isn't classified here?! Oh wait... Perhaps the ones sending agents to X-Com are even more classified than the Men in Black, or aliens.

Sure hook him up with M.A.G.M.A.  Sparta is a real world company with a project and scientist that I based this guy on. :)

In the end, the ones who finance X-com finance MiB too, true?.

Cool, I'll use him like this, then.

- Name: House of HORUS
(...)

- Name: Omega Conglomerate
(...)

Thanks, I'll use them too, but they'll have to wait a bit until I start adding organizations.

You'll find out yourself... After I write it!

Can a Dossier be a special report of fringe or weird science, an event, or a place? I guess I'll keep working on stuff to show :)


Name: Ludmilla Trka

Role: Contactee

Details: Verified abduction survivor with multiple strange implants removed over the course of last seven years. She claims to feel the presence of invaders enslaving others at the start of the second millennium.

Sure, share your ideas and I'll do my best to incorporate them. I'm not sure yet how exactly, but it won't go to waste. Maybe I'll try adding "weird news" stuff like Hobbes... Maybe he'll find it useful too. :)

OK, I'll try to fit her somehow. But who is her employer? Certainly not X-Com, or we wouldn't have to raid cultist houses to find out about her.
