Reaper Bones review #134: Nova Corp Soldier

It's not easy being a soldier in Nova Corp. Oh sure, there's the hazard pay, the vacation time, and the merit-based increases that happen sporadically and without warning every couple of years, assuming you survive that long. But then there's the whole "getting shot by heroes" clause that's in your contract.

What? You didn't read that part?  It's there, trust me, in the fine print at the end of page 287, Section C, part IV: Insurance.  Yeah, there.  Seems like insurance isn't something Nova Corp really offers, because there's a high mortality rate.  Funny they didn't mention that when you signed up.

But don't worry, it's easy to advance.  Most Nova Corp soldiers can't hit the broad side of a barn, which is why the officer test involves hitting the broad side of a barn. Rumor has it that they changed the test so you actually had to shoot it after Garvin Markus passed his test by running up to the barn and smacking it with his rifle.
