The Faithful Departed

November 2, 2013

As it’s All Saints’ Day in Finland, I figured I’d make a themed post. The Utopia campaign is still ongoing, despite a long break. In fact, we’ve already scheduled the next game – ten days from now.

The campaign has seen its share of heroes and anti-heroes – some more memorable than others. In this post we remember the valiant and somewhat less valiant troopers of UTOPIA squad 16 that have given their tiny lead and plastic lives in service of the mighty Union of Terra.

Sgt. Salt Brauer was the long-time leader of the 16th, who went from a washed-up alcoholic to a hero of sorts. MIA on Ryukyu Epsilon after cyborg attack, presumed dead.

Cpl. Diego “Ding” Rodriguez came from a privileged Latin American family. KIA by a cyborg on Ryukyu Epsilon.

Cpl. “Ace” Wembley was a cynical alcoholic. KIA by an insurrectionist on the Alpha moon of Kessler-11.

Pvt. “Hellion” was a young punk rocker and smartgunner. No one knew her real name. KIA by a security guard on the asteroid DH-3.

Pvt. Hämäläinen was a dour, effective Finn, who kept to himself. KIA by a cyborg on Ryukyu Epsilon.

Pvt. Jane knew his military doctrine in an out – a real hero. MIA on Ryukyu Epsilon after cyborg attack, presumed dead.

Pvt. Kenny was a former pro football player. None too smart, but deadly with a flamethrower. MIA on Ryukyu Epsilon after cyborg attack, presumed dead.

Pvt. Wu was an excellent sniper with the squad’s most impressive kill count and a knack for off duty trade. KIA by a cyborg on Ryukyu Epsilon.

The Union thanks these individuals for their service. More will surely follow.
