572.

Turn 16. Looks empty. But when Okoth walks to the other door, something explodes.

573.

Another Sectoid with stun bomb launcher. Fortunately, he missed.

574.

Now sleep!

575.

And die.

648 (reconstructed from saves)

Turn 17. This Sectoid has too many unspent TUs. Okoth can shoot no more than once in auto mode.

649 (reconstructed from saves)

Turn 18. Open the door, shoot, wait for next turn. Rinse and repeat. Meanwhile Skjolsvold continues panicking and berserking.

581.

Turn 20. Where did he go?

582.

Okoth went north, but looks like the Sectoid went east, to the lift. This way he'll see Skjolsvold. Unarmed and immobile.

585, 586.


Turn 21. Yes, the Sectoid is on the bottom floor. No chance to kill him in 1 turn at this range.

589.

Turn 23. The alien missed and Skjolsvold stopped panicking. Now he can grab the gun or run to the enemy with a club or hide behind the UFO.

Looks like this Sectoid is pretty good at close combat. I sent Okoth and then had to reload.

594.

Turn 25. Skjolsvold can't reach his gun and Okoth reached the door only now. Same old: 3 shots and hide.

595.

Skjolsvold started panicking again.

597.

Turn 27. Where's the alien again? There are several unlit areas, but the agents can't throw flares there from under the ship's "wheel".

603.

Tun 30. Can't come any closer — the alien throws grenades.

606.

Turn 31. Skjolsvold is under alien control.

612.

Turn 38. Skjolsvold recovered and went to the top exit to throw flares from there. Okoth continues shooting from the bottom exit. The alien is approaching.

615.

Skjolsvold got panicked. So much for this plan.

620.

Turn 43. Okoth tried close combat again.

622.

He won.

623.

Skjolsvold finally got +10 to braery. Okoth got another +5 to melee.

624.

This ship gave more money than any 2 previous ships combined. And I'm not selling mind probes yet.

626.

And thus ends the month of January. Note that there are some new countries, not appearing in the vanilla game.

I tried to read this LP... But the format with the pics at the bottom makes it too tiring, sorry.
