|Team Member Aidan Examines the Scout Ship|
Aidan (my youngest boy) absolutely loves X-plorers. He took my full-sized rule book and my boxed set. He lives it and breathes it! He has already made me promise to give him the publishing rights when I die. :) We got to play last Sunday evening, just the two of us. Our team was sent to Outpost 3552, because Conglom (the mega-corporation our X-plorers Team works for) had lost all contact with the family of four that maintains the facility (which conducts deep-space telemetry (or some such thing). We arrived only to discover that some strange energy beings had come up through the outpost's reactor and attacked the family. We rescued the family by holding the creatures off with a sonic weapon and then finished cleaning the outpost by nuking it from orbit (he has never seen the movie, but he sure makes me so proud!)
Of course, there are more details, but I wanted to share with you a few quotes from Aidan during the game. The are worth every minute I have spent working on X-plorers. Thanks Dave!
|"Plasma shot all over the energy creatures."|
"Sheesh, Dad. Only stupid X-plorers leave the ship without their their enviro suits."
"Martians are good aliens."
"Don't we have jet packs? What kind of X-plorer Team doesn't have a jet pack?"
"You're injured and I don't want to put you into the fight..."
"Check the surveillance in the hanger."
Very precious memories. :)
