Here now, there is no call for that DL. This is not an offensive post, did you read more than the summary? Your ranting about the end of the world and the coming of regiments doesnt give you sole domain over them. This is a serious post, quite unlike the Picnic of the Apocalypse. Did you read it? Did you read any of it? What is offensive to you about it? Go to Comment
The Asmodeus is one of the most easily recognized of the Infernal Tanks, and at 35 tons, one of the smallest. It is also unique in that it uses four pairs of electrically driven drive wheels, rather than the standard caterpillar tread. The tank has a rather boxy profile with a small turret.
Firepower comes in the for of a trio of turret mounted flamethrowers that have exceptional range for their weapon type. The flamers are supported by a hull mounted machine gun, and a two shot anti-tank missle system.
The primary role of the Asmodeus is as a shock weapon, advancing quickly on enemy lines spewing streams of fire into bunkers and trenches all the while be supported by heavy infantry with mortars, grenades and assault rifles. Go to Comment
The Ba'al is the heaviest piece of armor in the Infernal arsenal, tipping the scales at a hefty 120 tons. It is not a fast tank by any means, but it compensates for this with a legendary 300mm mortar cannon. This 6 inch gun lobs a 65 pound shell as far as 12 miles with little regard for collateral damage. A line of Ba'al tanks can quickly pound a row of armored vehicles into scrap with a short barrage of these hefty rounds.
The biggest weakness in the Ba'al is its slow ground speed and mediocre armor. It is vulnerable to tank-destroyers and to infantry as well as it lacks a fixed machine gun, using a fixed flamethrower instead. Go to Comment
The sound of rotors thumping over the jungle was a familar sound in Vietnam, followed by the roar of rockets and the hail of minigun fire. The Blackwing is a newer version of the venerable Huey helicopter, one that has been cross-fertilized with the Apache and the Soviet Hind class gunship. It is a large helicopter with stubby wings on its side for mounting weapons.
The main armament is a pair of electrically aimed and driven mini-guns similar to the main cannon of the Torment fighter. The Blackwing supplements this with a pair of 6in rocket launchers, each capable of holding 18 rockets. A single machine gun, aimed by the navigator is fixed to the nose of the craft.
Like the Hind and the Huey, it can carry a squad of infantry into battle, support them with heavy firepower, and then retrieve them after the mission is complete. Go to Comment
before I even remotely consider removing this, I would like a specific example of what gives offence. And I mean something specific, why if offends not just a broad statement of the whole thing be offensive.
Darl Lord, please refrain froma dding those kind of remarks. Especially after your failed attempt at the end of the world timer... this is just a simple site for entertainment purposes, none of this is real. So sit back, relax, and enjoy. Go to Comment
Perhaps those that practice elemental magic begin to take on characteristics associated with their chosen element. For instance, an earth elementalist might be prone to agoraphobia, while air and possibly fire elementalists might have problems with claustrophobia. Water elementalists might always seek the path of least resistance. A fire elementalist might have a cat's opinion of water. This could also apply to physical differences. Fire elementalists might have a freakishly high metabolism and a permanently high body temperature. Water elementalists would probably never get dehydrated, but might slow down a lot when it's cold. Etc, etc.
