Email Address : <email removed> Other Files By Author : none that I wish to confess to releasing :P Misc. Author Info : Crazy cyclist, metalhead, Doom freak, 'nuff said. Story Doom: The year is 2206, and earth has finally begun to exploit the resources of the solar system. The first planet on the list is Mars. The reasons are very obvious of course: One, Mars is the least hostile, and two, Mars is the most mineral rich planet at this system, as Earth has been nearly drained dry of resources, except in northern Canada and Russia. You and your battallion are stationed there to protect the interests of the conglomerate Union Aerospace Corporation. From what, you have no damned clue, because no one has screwed with the International Marine Corps. for twenty years. Not only that, you have the best equipment in the solar system, all supplied by the UAC, of course. The UAC has been tinkering with gates on the Martian moons, Phobos and Deimos. Fear and Madness...you laugh at the names, considering how tiny the moons are. So, life on Mars is incredibly dull. All there is to do is sit on your ass and watch movies, and pray for something little to happen, which it doesn't. However, at the end of your second month there, the alarms go off. something has gone wrong. There's screaming over the coms that creatures are emerging from gates on the lunar surface. Hideous beasts. You thank the powers that be, without thinking of course, for this break in the droning lifestyle of a Martian soldier. You and your men begin boarding the craft and getting geared up to confront whatever these creatures are. The shuttles blast off for Phobos. On the way to the moons, you notice that there is only one moon in the sky where there should be two...looks like the Phobos Hangar will be the the landing spot. You are ordered to guard the shuttle, and the assault crews head out taking all the good stuff with them. You look to the coms to see and hear what is going on...it's an absolute bloodbath. Your comrades are brutally slaughtered like lambs in a tight enclosure. Blood spatters walls, intestines decorate the ground...and you can hear a faint crunching sound over the com. Well, it's either kill or be killed. After all, you're sick of sitting on your ass, it's time to kick some! Doom II: You return home from the hellish nightmare of Mars and her moons, hoping for some respite and a lot of much needed r'n'r. However, fate can be cruel. When you land, you find earth has been invaded by the very creatures which you slaughtered left, right, and centre on Mars. People are running in terror, and are being rounded up by IMC soldiers onto escape pods. However, the creatures are a lot smarter than they appear to be. They've erected an energy field to prevent all take-offs and landings. The remainder of humanity is trapped, and the only thing between them and the creatures is the remainder if the IMC troops. You and the soldiers rally up to re-enter the starport for one sole purpose, saving humanity. You, and them charge in headling, guns blazing, and the soldiers around you drop like flies. Well. Looks like it's you and them. Again. Payback's a bitch. Evilution: Earth has been saved, and the Union Aerospace Corporation is in shambles. And, as wonderful as that may sound (after all, they ARE responsible for screwing with the warp gates), it's actually bad. So, after a short depression, the world is back on its feet again, and the UAC is rebuilt as well. Thankfully they're still supplying the renowned, albeit still greatly diminished International Marine Corps. The UAC, like all conglomerates, is not one to sit on their laurels, however, and proceeds to Jupiter's moon. But this time, they had the Marines stationed on site, and armed to the teeth. And of course, Murphy's Laws are proven once again. The critters return. The bastards never learn, do they? And of course, who's the leader of the defence team? You, of course. Talk about the shaft. However, you and your troops know your stuff; you have the invasion supressed within an hour, and the gates are shut off from your end. Time to breathe easy...or so you think. Within a few weeks, the annual supply ship comes in oh, seven months early. However, the UAC is too busy working on their experiments that the disregard it. Big mistake. The ship opens up as it descends, and creatures begin pouring out. first a mass of Cacodemons and Pain Elementals, to secure the way. And then, as it gets to around fifty feet above ground, the imps, demons, and worse follow suit. It's an absolute bloodbath, and your comrades at arms are slaughtered like cattle. You, however, were not on base, you were sent on an errand to the supply shed. On your way back, however, you are confronted by an imp, who's face you gladly rearrange with your Beretta 2092. Well...here we go again... The Plutonia Experiment: You return home, finally on leave, and you hear the news: The UAC has been fooling with the gates on EARTH, and something has gone wrong..."Geez, now there's a fucking surprise!", you yell out, right in the middle of the starcruiser returning to earth. You check the drawer below your seat, to make sure your pistol, shoulder holster and spare clips are still there. Yep. Good, 'cause you're gonna need 'em. As you look up, you see every face still turned to you. Most of them are marines, the remaining survivors of the Jovian catastrohe. You begin to seethe with rage. The ship docks, and the soldiers all rush to the barracks. But you do not. You go to the commanding officer, and request that you be sent to the disaster site post-haste, and with a little arguing and bribery, you get it. One more time into the fray, this is it. No quarter shall be asked or given, ever again. Description: Anyone who's played Lock and Load knows what it's all about. To an extent. Lock and Load, more or less, was always about weapons. Weapons that could and would pulverise the Doom critters like nothing before. Heh. Well, this release is a weapons release only, but there ARE new enemies planned. The kind of enemies that would kick your ass at a moment's notice. Well, not just planned, I have the whole wad compiled, I just have to DDF code it all. Well... JUST having to do that would be an understatement. Anyway, there are several weapons here for your slaughtering pleasure that would give most gun freaks an orgasm at the mention of what they do...but I'll let you see what destruction the can reap for yourselves. The weapons: -HK Mk.23 SOCOM w/replication magazine - this is your starting weapon. Not the weakest, not the strongest, but of all of your sidearms it has the larger magazine capacity. It comes in two flavours: One pistol, or akimbo after you've picked up another one. -Desert Eagle Mk. VII .50AE - this is the most powerful of your sidearms, but its magazine capacity blows at first. There is an upgrade to bring the magazine from 7 rounds to 10. There is also a second one of these to pick up. This weapon also uses replicator magazines. -M16A1 - This is the most power of the weapons to use a replicator magazine. It deals less pain than the Desert Eagle, but has a high rate of fire and a larger magazine capacity. Also comes in single or akimbo flavours. -OICW Mk.5 - Also known as the Sniper OICW (it's not real, so work with me here, dammit!!), this is a powerful combination of a high-power assault rifle (firing 7.62mm instead of 5.56mm) and a .50BMG sniper rifle. The zoom is high and so is the recoil. -HK G3A4 GBAR - An old G3 super-modified to an extremely deadly mix between high-powered assault rifle and a high-powered sniper rifle. The 3 lb. trigger has been replaced with a 5 lb. trigger, and the standard barrel has been replaced with a heavy barrel for sniping. Furthermore, a high-zoom scope has been mounted as well. It has two attack modes, an automatic fire mode and a semi-automatic shot with more hitting power and accuracy. -Pulse Rifle - The uber-rifle is back! Same as before with the shotgun and grenade launcher firing modes, but there are now upgrades. The first is an increase in the size of the rifle magazine, doubling its capacity, and the second is a huge increase in accuracy. Also, the shotgun's spray is much wider than before. -.50BMG Minigun - The "lightest" anti-equipment weapon, this high-powered machinegun spews out .51 caliber ammunition with absolute impunity with reasonable accurace thanks to hydraulic shock- absorbers, amongst other things. -18.5mm Autocannon - One of the deadliest weapons to come to the battlefield is the Autocannon, a heavy anti-armor machinegun that uses a suspension arm to handle recoil thus making it man-portable. The rate of fire, at 600 RPM, is very high for a man-portable weapon of such a large calibre, and depleted uranium slugs. But, it certain can and will lay waste to just about anything on the battlefield in short order. -30mm Anti-Tank Rifle - Firing a depleted uranium slug that is 30mm in diameter and 250mm in length, this is one of the most powerful weapons ever made. However, only the strongest of individuals are capable of both carrying and using this weapon, as its recoil is EXTREMELY high. However, this weapon will send a slug right through the heaviest of tank armours - and right through the other side of said tank, if the round doesn't explode on its own first. -Railgun - An assault rifle that fires titanium slugs using electromagnetic acceleration. Obviously, projectile velocity is quite high. Now, can it fire through critters? Some. It also has a reasonably high rate of fire, but its ammo use is extremely high. -HK69 40mm grenade launcher - Anti-personnel grenade launcher that fires either high-explosive or napalm/incendiary grenades. The latter attack is more for holding enemies at bay, as opposed to killing them, but it will certainly deal with lesser enemies in very short order. The former attack, however, is purely offensive. -RPG/FAE - a missile launcher that either fires standard HE warheads or the extremely deadly Fuel-Air Explosive warheads, at much, much higher ammo cost. But, it'll certainly lay waste pretty damned quick. -Laser Sniper Rifle - a sniper rifle that fires a pulse-beam about the diameter of the average fist. It also has a tendency to bounce around like crazy, so you're best to watch where you fire it! -Automatic 12ga Shotgun - A fully automatic 12 guage shotgun with a 12 rd. mag. It's quite powerful, though, but is best used for very close encounters. -Flamethrower - Old Toasty's back!!
