Strogg Funhouse: Where the Strogg Go to Play
After beating down Makron and blowing Stroggos up, you and your fellow marines (yeah, the crazy ones) are getting all comfy womfy in your harmless battle-practice areas. The Strogg know pain is gain and they had a little asteroid all hollowed out just for that purpose.
I found this asteroid after exploring the rubble of Stroggos to see if I could salvage some of the large amounts of silicone floating around in space from all the dead Strogg females. It was in the Damlox-3 area I found the asteroid. It had a light in one of the craters on the surface so it was easy to spot. Upon landing I was greeted by a large Tank. Woah-nelly! I think this one didnt get it’s ration of brain from the Processing plant. Turns out he’s there as a guard for when the Strogg come by to practice. The little badge on his chest read “Hi, my name is Eugene”.
I didn’t have the heart to tell him what happened to Stroggos. Poor piece of lead. He told me that the Pimp-Tank himself came here weekly for acid-baths. Not anymore, Eugene, I thought to myself grinning.
I asked Eugene if he minded if a few marine pals of mine dropped by for a quick frag-fest. He said that would be okay as long as we cleaned up afterwards. Eugene opened up a freezer full of dead marines and proceeded to pull out a few weapons and some ammo. “Uh…here..you can use dese gunz”. I looked at him trying to hold my laughter back…but then realized this was “Eugene, the dumb-as-a-post Tank” and proceed to bwahahahaha as loud as a Gandarian Mukwack.
I set up all the gear inside the lower areas of the asteroid and then proceeded to get back into my ship. I glanced back at Eugene who was staring out into space from behind his dirty glass-covered watchtower.
“Later Eugene!” I smirked as the jets on my F98 fired up. I glanced back at the asteroid in my rear view vid-window. A Strogg Funhouse. What will they think of next?
– A note from the author:
This level isn’t an architectural wonder. It’s not meant to have you “ooh-ing and ahh-ing”. It’s about having fun. Took a chunk of my weekend to make it.
If you don’t have a lot of fun playing in it… I’ll have to send Eugene over. ;)
