Re: We need moar aliens!

I'm preeeetty sure the Yith and byhakee companions are legit aliens. Cthulhu verse has a lot of flesh and blood extraterrestrials in addition to the "mythical" kind of creatures.

Also, the Zion's Tears and Elco Hoist creatures... well, I'm not saying it was aliens... but it was aliens.

Re: New Merit Badge ??

Permed all of the eight skills, spent barely any time in the ZOM zones other than killing bosses. Got the badge right away on the retcon after perming the last skill.

Re: Spelling and grammatical errors

For the "firebreather" opening:

You follow up with a devestating firebreathing round for 107 damage.

Should be "devastating"

Devastated that typo. Thanks!
