    Early the next day...

    Huxley: Alright, the quickcrete is too valuable to lose so we'll take that on foot via a different route just in case anything happens to the packmules...

    Sergey: So, I see you guys made good friends with Boris..
    Huxley: The old man was useful. I don't necessarily trust him since he's just out to make a profit, but I can't blame him either.
    Sergey: You guys look like you're not gonna be gracing us with your presence much longer.
    Huxley: Don't get your panties in a bunch Sergey, we'll be out of your hair soon enough. Give us another day or so and we'll be on our way.

    Sergey: What's going on here?
    Huxley: New volunteers. Seems plenty of the folk around here are looking to get out into the world and do some good.
    Sergey: Wait what? No, these are our people, you can't just swoop them up and take them with you like that.
    Huxley: We're all on the same side here Sergey, it's not a sports franchise so don't act like we're scalping your players or something. None of these people have any obligation to you or this village specifically; hell most of them aren't even actually part of the greater movement, they're just refugees you guys agreed to look out for. If they wanna give themselves fully to the cause that's their business. Lambda always needs more able-bodied men.

    Sergey: Hey, hey! Alexei! *grabs one of the men in line by the arm* Alexei? What the hell are you doing?
    Alexei: I can't stay here anymore Sergei, I'm sick of this village. I need to do something with my life, be part of something more.
    Sergey: You ARE part of something though Alexei. You're one of our best mechanics here, if it wasn't for you guys this village would have no power or clean water.
    Alexei: I need something MORE than that though. I can't just sit here while the Combine run roughshod over the rest of the world. I need to help the people outside these walls, and this is the best opportunity I'm going to get.
    Sergey: Think hard about this Alexei, this isn't going to the hunt for glory you think it is. These men are killers. If you go with them you WILL see combat, and there's no guarantee you're going to come back alive. For god's sake you only just turned 18!
    Alexei: That's a chance I'm willing to take Sergey. Please, just let me go.

    *Alexei breaks away from Sergey's grasp and walks away...*
    Sergey: That boy's going to die...
    Huxley: He might not be the usual caliber of volunteer we like to take but we'll turn him into a soldier, don't worry about that.
    Sergey: Jesus look at them, most of them are kids! Half of them haven't even been outside of the village in their lifetime...
    Huxley: Normally we wouldn't even take them but, given the circumstances we've had to lower our standards for recruits a bit.
    Sergey: You're gonna send all these kids to their deaths, you know that right?
    Huxley: If that's the case then so be it, they volunteered of their own accord. Don't act like you have some moral high ground here Sergey; you DID just send a significant number of your own people to their deaths not too long ago, so you're no better than me. The main difference is that I don't sugar coat what we do with romantic bullshit. These boys know the stakes, and if they don't they'll learn soon enough.

    Lambda 17-14 have noticed somewhat decreased enemy ground presence in the recent weeks. It seems that many important events, such as Battle for Voroschi and skirmishes in City 17 have prompted Overwatch command to retract some of forces here and deploy them to more important areas. Rebels are using this calmer period to scavenge battle site of the former first line of defense, which feel after a large Conscript offensive months ago. Whatever rebels left behind are reclaimed by Lambda 17-14's scavengers, provided they successfully avoid rummaging antlions, unexploded munitions and an occasional Combine sniper.

    Another friendly faction neighboring Lambda 17-14 - The Woodsmen, have requested their aid in a large construction project. Lambda 17-14 have answered by sending a detachment of engineers with fortification and tunneling expertise, as well as a truck filled with enough tools to equip entire construction brigade.

    Loads of looted Combine mines have been disassembled recently. While Lambda 17-14 kept the explosive material inside them for IED production, most of scrap metal has been sent away to the White Forest base, which has a furnace and metalworking facility suitable enough to repurpose it. Yet, there are still 2 full crates of scrap metal White Forest refused to accept due to lack of storage space.

    Lambda 17-14 has no use of all this Combine metal, so it is now gathering dust deep inside their bunker.

    Who knows, maybe some travelling trader will show up sometime willing to exchange it for something useful?

    The leader of the Minutemen, mostly known as The Commander, stepped out of his cottage after hearing a large congregation of vehicles and people, it didn't take him long enough to see the countless cars and trucks in the middle of the village the Minutemen protect.


    Commander: what is the meaning of all this racket?! who is this man?

    Lance Corporal Koslov: still "toasted" commander? I'm surprised you woke this early.

    Commander: what was that lance corporal?!

    LC. Koslov: Eh... n-nothing sir.

    Borislav: [Is this the leader of the Minutemen?]

    LC. Koslov: [Yes, the commander.]


    Commander: what are two talking about?

    LC. Koslov: Sir, this is Borislav, he insists he is a trader of some sorts.

    Borislav: That accent... Englishman?

    Commander: Scottish but that's none of your bloody business, how did you locate us?

    Borislav: Ah! My friend Sergey told me about your location!

    Commander: Sergey? who the hell is Sergey?!

    Voroschi Volunteer: Sir, if he is talking of the Sergey I know... that person is the leader of the Podokovsky Liberation Fighters, I remember when Sergeant Kerry and I escorted him and his wife to the motel back at Voroschi.

    Commander: The PLF? that rabble has a leader? how did this Sergey learned of our location anyways?

    Borislav: that's not important my friend!


    *Borislav wraps his arm around the commanders shoulders and smiles.*

    Borislav: what matters now is that I have everything you need! My heart always went to those brave soldiers that fight for the better good! ...and also because they always have the best stuff! from the Brigada to New Little Odessa, I have traded with everyone and I plan to do the same here! so... my good friend, what's your offering?

    Commander: ...Don't touch me.
    FBI SWAT GUY posted:

    The Minutemen offers:
    - 2 crates of Pasgt gear with helmets and vest
    - 1 Stinger.
    - 2 crates of ammunition containing each one Stringer rocket.
    (picture made by FBI SWAT GUY.)

    The items offered are expected to be used by the Minutemen so it's considered a fair offer, in total the offers quality was considered High. and thus the High quality list was used, item 3 of the list of 20 was selected by the generator, no bonus.



    Borislav: Here you have it Commander! I remember when I found this old ZPU-4 on a old and abandoned soviet base near Siberia, I never had any use for it since I'm always on the run and fighting is not good for business! but according to me my best soldier, Pavel, this weapon is capable penetrate any human based aircraft and maybe even against hunter choppers, however, it might not be as efficient against Combine synths, I'm also giving you the 8 ammo cans that we found along with it, I hope you have a good use for this gun!

    List of items:
    - 1 ZPU-4.
    - 8 cans of ammunition for it.


    Congratulations FBI SWAT guy! if you need to ask anything please go right ahead!

    *At 5:30 in the morning, the village of Podokovsky is treated to a tremendous racket as the Woodsmen rouse their recruits and prepare to move out...
    Gunnery Sgt Donahue: Everyone up! Get your asses out of those racks! Fall out for morning muster, I want everyone outside in formation in 5 minutes!

    *the six recruits from this bunkhouse gather outside in two sloppy lines. Most of them are still half-asleep, not used to being up this early in the morning...*

    Sgt Potrov: *In a heavy Russian accent* You feeling tired?!
    Alexei: No-
    Sgt Potrov: Maybe you like to go back inside and finish beauty sleep?! You like me to tuck you in too?!
    Alexei: No, I'm fine...
    Sgt Potrov: "No I'm fine" what?! You want to finish sentence for me?!
    Alexei: N-no I'm fine... sir..
    Sgt Potrov: Good, now shut mouth and pay attention!

    Gun Sgt Donahue: I don't know how the hell they expect me to make Woodsmen, when they won't even send me human fucking beings to being with! Sgt Potrov, demonstrate the position of attention for these slobs!
    *the sergeant snaps to attention in perfect form, he then begins to translate everything the Gunnery Sergeant says into Russian for the ethnic speakers in the ranks...*
    Gun Sgt Donahue: This is the position of attention! This is the only position in which a recruit may address a Woodsman, Lambda fighter, or civilian while under my supervision! Your eyes will be straight ahead; you will not look anywhere other than directly ahead of you unless otherwise instructed to do so! Your feet will be together at a 45 degree angle, your hands will be balled into fists and your thumbs will be resting on the seam of your trousers! Most importantly, your mouth will be SHUT! Now, atten-HUT!
    *all the recruits loosely snap to attention at the Gunnery Sergeant's command...*

    Gun Sgt Donahue: Now, I am Gunnery Sergeant Donahue; I am your platoon leader! You are one of the many 6 man teams that will comprise my platoon! For the time being, each six man squad will train separately until you are ready to begin training as an entire platoon! I will be your platoon's senior drill instructor, but your squad will be under the charge of Sergeant Potrov! You will treat all drill instructors, Woodsmen, and Lambda fighters alike with the respect they deserve! If you feel that at any time during your training you or one of your platoon members is being treated unfairly by a drill instructor or another recruit, you will come directly to me with your report! During your training, you will obey all instructions given to you without question, and you will observe proper code of conduct at all times! I expect you to give 110% in all tasks you are assigned, because I and the other drill instructors will be giving 110% to ensure that you are shaped into the finest fighting men the Lambda resistance has to offer! There will be no easy times ahead of you from here on out! You will be pushed the very limits of your physical and mental capacity! There will be times where you will quit on yourself; I and the other drill instructors however will NOT quit on you! You will face each challenge head-on with the fighting spirit that makes the Woodsmen one of the most elite Lambda units, and you will overcome them! I expect nothing less but great things from each and every one of you!

    Gun Sgt Donahue: Sergeant Potrov; I hereby place these recruits under your charge.
    Sgt Potrov: Received, sir!

    Sgt Potrov: When I give signal, you will right face and march to truck! You will grab tools or bag of mortar and you will carry them in formation! You will march single-time for as long as told to, and you will not break formation! If you break formation, I break you! Now, right- FACE!

    *each 6 man recruit squad takes a load of tools and mortar and sets off down a different route toward their destination. The truck and engineers on loan from 17-14 and the packmules also go their own ways. This is to minimize the chance of detection by Overwatch forces and also their loss of assets should they come under attack...*

    Good! Would you like to carry on the battle ages before or ignore it and hope S40 and the ALIT meet again?

    As in the one battle that was right at the beginning of the thread. Good to know your back though, your screens are v good.

    This looked good at first but I'd be a little more impressed if you'd actually spent time posing the guys rather than use stock HL2 animations and pause halfway through.

    As the overall combine involvment in the Battle of Voroschi came to a close, so did the Combat units of the ALIT. Injured and tired they were sent back to City 17 to wash, get dressed in civilian clothing and fuck off till training or another deployment. The worst affected were, obviously including the physically injured, the teams who lost members they'd know for an age. Many teams lost friends and allies, who would at some point be replaced by someone else. The Elites of teams missing members mourn not only for their lost friend but also feel the responsibility for whatever reason their trooper was misplaced.


    Jakob Ovorich had lost not one but two of those under his command. As the elite of a Combat Unit, this meant only one thing: getting fired. This did not concern him. What concerned him the most was that not only had Vladmir Mikelvich been shot, his best friend, but that the newest soldier, Martin J. Burton had been taken by the PLF. This was surely in every way a horrible thing, a concern that could not be ignored.


    As the teams arrive they all slowly vanish back into the backstreets of City 17. This team however, was on a much different objective than “find somewhere to sleep”


    As they make their way through the streets, realizing they'll have to vanish as quick as possible, a feeling of dread comes over them as they make their way to their meeting place. A feeling of mutal adventure too is somewhere inside them, pushing them forward.


    Combat Team Beta 6 reunites 2 days after the Battle for one last fight. They have only one goal: To find and rescue their friend and teammate.
    From left to right:
    Alberto Mancinelli
    Transfer from Italy, ex-urban explorer. Usually equipped with submachine guns. Youngest of the team at age 26. While he may be unexpeiranced, he's light and fast. While the supression field may have dampened his way with women, his way with 9mm is just as impressive.
    Linestky Totovoriski
    The Grenadier and friend of Vladmir. 30 years older and the joker, he's got more laughs than grenades under his belt. He's also one of the most emotional, on a path of revenge more than rescue.
    Kenneth Williams
    American transfer to the Team. Shotgunner. Lived on the streets of Baltimore, worked his way up through the thug ranks until he became smart enough to train to become a SWAT officer. 46 years old, tough as nails and the coolest of them all. Used to shotguns and CQC as part of his past employment. Being an ALIT member was almost natural.
    Jakob Ovorich
    Beta 6's leading Elite. Ukranian cage fighter. Age 35. Wanted to become a police officer as a boy, his parents saw another way of life for him. Known for his lack of a broken nose he spread out into training himself into other forms of street fighting (Calls karate a “faggot dream”) and prefers to fight hand on hand or with improvised weapons. Perfect for his current situation.

    As they work their way through the streets of City 17, the plan falls into motion.


    Taking with them nothing but their uniforms, they make their way to the entrance into the sewers known to the Inspectors as a refugee favourite. They meet a comrade from their training days who brings them Martin's pickaxe. After saying their thanks and goodbyes, their comrade hands Jakob his pistol and proceeds to throw himself at a wall. Looking on in confusion, their comrade motions at them to leave. As they run he calls to report some anticitizens apparently making their way into City 17.... continently nowhere near where Beta 6 are going.


    They make their way through the sewers, one of the only places in this massive city they know. After liberating some cops of their pistols and stun batons they go on the run. Their first port of call being the first Railroad representive they can find.

    The Woodsmen continue along, searching for a place to begin their great undertaking.

    Meanwhile...
    Excerpt from Alexei's Journal~
    Day 3.
    We've been marching endlessly but it doesn't seem like we're going anywhere in particular. We're all wondering why we're hauling all this damned equipment around when they have a perfectly good truck, but anytime one of us asks a question the soldiers just tell us to shut up and keep moving. That's nothing compared to if the drill instructor catches us speaking out of turn. He'll halt the entire column and make you bend and thrust (which is basically squatting down, kicking your legs back behind you so you're in a push-up position, then bringing them back to your chest and jumping up to your feet) until either you collapse or he's satisfied. Tonight when we stopped to make camp, or "bivouacked" as they call it, I was picked for first watch of the night. All I want is to just fall asleep, but I have to stay up for my shift. They say it's only four hours, but with how tired I am right now that might as well be all night. I've never worked so much and slept so little in my life.

    Guard duty is miserable. They pair each of us up with an actual soldier and give us one of their hand-me-down weapons. They show us how to load them, work the safety and fire them but that's about it. It was unbearably cold out tonight; they gave me a pair of gloves but they were so thin they did nothing to help. They said it was so my hands don't freeze to the gunmetal instead of keeping them warm. When on guard duty recruits are expected to assume a sentry position and hold it all night. We're supposed to keep absolutely still and alert; every time I so much as sneezed or shivered the soldier I was with would smack me upside the head and tell me to shut up. The only time we're allowed to make any kind of noise or move at all is if there's movement in the area, at which point we're to command them to identify themselves as friend or foe. As if the cold wasn't bad enough, it's the lack of activity that's the worst part of guard duty. Every time I started to nod off, smack to the head again. Once I was relieved from my shift I turned in my weapon and went straight back to my tent. I've never been so happy to see a sleeping bag in my life...

    Two posts in one day, holy shit guize.

    Col Huxley and the engineers from 17-14 finally find a suitable area to begin construction. Before any real building can begin, the rest of the tools will have to trickle in with the recruits.

    In the meantime, the engineers get to work surveying the area and establishing a perimeter. They define it by placing stakes in the ground at 20 meter intervals.

    1. Faction Name: 8th Conscript Armoured Division

    2. Faction Alignment: Combine

    3. Some images of your faction members doing stuff:


    The 8th in America, City 45.
    4. History of your faction:
    The 8th Conscript Armoured Division is an experienced group of conscripts rounded up from the remnants of some of the major countries involved in the Seven Hour War. (SEE: USA, RU, CHINA, ETC.) Having already experienced heavy combat in White Forest in the past with Lambda 17-14, the Division was transferred to City 45, in America, however, with the recent resurgences of 17-14 and numerous other rebel groups, the Division has been transferred back to City 17. However, due to heavy casualties in White Forest and America, the Division is fairly low on running tanks, especially those from the Old World, and is low on operators to operate the vehicles. Infantry-wise, they are fairly full.
    5. (Optional) Area of operation: City 17.

    6. Link to your faction wiki page: Haven't made one, 'tis a pain in the ass.

    City 17, 405th Helipad
    Sandra Lee: Thanks for keeping this out of the records, I owe you when I get back.
    Port officer: Its not a problem, after all, no one really wants this garbage.
    405th Pilot: Sandra, everything is accounted for, we're going to start loading everything.
    3 Hours Later:
    405th Pilot#1: City 17 Tower, flight 405 request permission for takeoff, Helipad 22.
    City 17 Tower: Flight 405, cleared for takeoff, turn right heading one-five within one mile of the Citadel. Maintain three thousand expect five thousand five minutes after departure. Departure frequency is one two one decimal three. Squawk four two six three. Have a good day.
    405th Pilot#1 Roger, turn right heading one-five within one mile of the Citadel. Maintain three thousand expect five thousand five minutes after departure. Departure frequency is one two one decimal three. Squawk four two six three.
    405th Pilot#2 Pre-flight checks complete. Sandra please be seated.
       I used actual Aviation terms. If I used the full conversation it would be a paragraph :P   
    Few minutes after takeoff.
    Pilot#2: Sandra we'll be closing the rear hatch, please stay clear.
    Hatch closes and the onboard Heater activates.
    Sandra's Audio Log: [I]Finally after 3 months of staying in City 17, i'll finally be able to go home. I can't believe i'm saying this, but I actually miss the cold.*Chuckles to herself* I managed to collect some toys for the kids back at the Fridge, I manage to find two tubs of toy soldiers for the twins and a stuffed seal for Madison. I also managed to get some Baby formula Kate's newborn son, I had to keep that off the books or they might get suspicious. Still it beats being those filthy rebels,they deserved what they got at Voroschi. But I digress, Pilot said it should be a short flight, and the resistance shouldn't cause any problems. I hope they don't...I would like to see my son.
    A Few hours later, 3 miles west of Podokosky.
    Pilot#1: Approaching Podokosky airspace, this could get dicey.
    Pilot#2: Ahh, why should we worry? Our boys handed them their asses on a silver platter.
    Pilot#1: Don't doubt them, they did kill a bunch of our guys.
    Pilot#2: Whaterver, I think we'll be fine.
    Meanwhile Below
    RPG Rebel: Eat this you bastards.
    Pilot#1: We got a Missile lock! Evasive maneuvers!
    Pilot#2: Me and my big mouth, Its too late! Brace For Impact!
    Missile Strikes the middle of the helicopter, bringing it down.
    The Aircraft Crashes 5 Miles Northwest of Podokosky, Spilling its cargo across the surrounding area. Both Pilots are killed, Sandra is Wounded but alive.
    That took me a bloody long time to make. hope you guys enjoy it!

    Hold on, there's a newborn? What about suppression field? Does it have a limited area of effect now or what?

    While not a huge fan of that concept of the 405th, Justin has given me a good explanation as of why the Suppression Field does not reach the cold tundra up north, we will grant a much better explanation later on in the thread.

    But If you guys believe this concept is too ludicrous, let Justin know, this thread is open to any sort of criticism and I believe we all understand that.

    Maybe the kids were born before it was up but my opinion seems far fetched.

    Like what edward said, the suppression field dosen't reach all the way towards where hell's fridge is. But I understand where you guys are coming from, but they play an important part of the story edward and I are planning

    Edited:

    But like what viper said a few pages back, people playing hoppla hoppla below the artic circle are drawing blanks, people that survive in the arctic wasteland draw live rounds

    I'm not part of this thread but I always pictured the suppression field being like mini-combine force field barriers that cockblock people

    But if you guys believe this idea does not fit the HL2 lore or Beta lore, we will understand.

    Whilst re-arming several remaining Abrams and T-55 tanks, the 8th is ordered to immediately move out and make their way towards Podovsky, via the forest. As such, they quickly throw numerous foliage over the tanks' fronts, and roll out, with numerous infantry elements following them. The division is carrying the equipment below with them:

    1x M1A1 Abrams (camouflaged), 2x T-55 (camouflaged), 1x BTR-40, 60x Infantry.

    Getting back in so here we go..
    Journal of Nick Garrester, Railroad Guard at Operating Base Foxtrot.

    Darius let me have enough time for a smoke break, thank God. Don't know how I could survive without one.

    In other news, Redding somehow found his wife among the next set of refugees we were about to escort. He had the biggest smile on his face when he saw her. Glad for him, thought he lost her during the Battle of Voroschi.

    While looking into our Base supplies, we found a small cache of 15 GP5 gas masks along with 40 sets of filters. Guess they could be useful if someone needed it..

    Reports of citizens disappearing and leaving cities seeking refugee outside grow day by day. Back at HQ new plans are being devised to put a halt to this.

    Unit 206 troops are dispatched to the streest of city 17 to help tighten security around checkpoints and to work along side civil protection officers in an effort to put a tighter lock down on the city temporarily.


    As security begins to tighten on the surface, raids are starting to go underway against groups of citizens hiding out in sewers in the hopes of finding and interrogating anyone who may have information on the groups; both in and out of the city who are helping people escape.

    So today I want to make the announcement and introduction of a new RNG system on the thread, the Random Event Generator! I made an entire list of 100 events, ALL of which are different, these events have different effects on the thread, it can be beneficial for all factions, negative for some, or for all factions -- it can also affect other things such as the story itself on the thread.

    Today the RNG has selected random event 68.

    Involuntary Conscription.

    Captain K. Maxwell: I've served the combine with pride the past nineteen years, when I hear the people scream at me and call me a "collaborator" on the streets or in the villages I visit, I tell them that there is no greater deed than the one of collaborating, the Universal Union is the only opportunity humanity has for redemption and I'll serve them until the last days of my life.

    Ms. Taylor from the HR Ministry has given me a new task, to recruit more men into our ranks due to the heavy losses we suffered on Voroschi and each day more of our men who are loyal to the cause start to join the Transhuman arm. We need more people, I've gathered my best men and women, as well a few transhuman supervisors, we will go each village, each settlement that is on the official maps and gather as much capable men and women we can, I know I'll see a lot of angry faces, but they will thank me later, they always do.

    All Conscript factions receive a 25% boost on fresh recruits, they are all untrained civilians but shaping these men and women into trusty loyalist won't be hard, right?

    This event will last until January 3, next week a new event will be selected.

    Just a quick one.
    It is pretty rare for a Railroad house to have a functioning church, but even rarer for it to also have a translator for those who don't understand russian. Many are thankful to be together in troubled times.

    I am wondering would be better if this thread did take upon stuff that was supposed the be included in half life universe we already borrowed much ,but i always pictured and wish that concept of combine not suppressing human population with suppression fields as human will continue to produce the main material for their synth soldiers. The concepts of hl2 beta made this world more gloomy and depressed. only wish it wasnt hacked by that german kid.
