Terminal Lance “Warranted II”

April 18, 2021

There is perhaps no other military rank shrouded in as much mystery as that of the elusive Chief Warrant Officers. Their colorful collars are adorned with flamboyant and powerful rank that give them unprecedented powers throughout the Marine Corps. No one has ever seen a Marine get promoted to the Warrant Officer ranks, it is thought that their ceremony is one of darkness and ritual.


In reality, the Warrant Officer ranks are in a weird spot because nobody actually knows who outranks them. They exist in a weird medium between enlisted and commissioned that grants them strange privilege. Enlisted can’t tell them what to do, but commissioned officers can’t find them because they aren’t as fluent in the skating arts as the enlisted. They are caught between worlds, in the nether realm of the Marine Corps.

Terminal Lance #543 “Unlimited Power”

April 16, 2019

For over 250 years, since 1775, the chillest of Marines have been at war with the great power of the Green Weenie. Using its vast network of officers and Staff NCO’s it has conducted extensive efforts to screw over Marines every chance it gets. It has but one weakness…


The only thing the great Green Weenie has never been able to stop is Time. With time, every Marine’s contract must come to an end. As their EAS date approaches, freedom ever looms in the background. What starts as a distant light at the end of the tunnel on day one, soon turns into a bright warmth of guiding rays 4 years later. It is often that the only truth a Marine has to look forward to is that their EAS date will eventually arrive.

Until now.

The great Green Weenie is constantly looking for new ways to fuck you over.

Stay vigilant, Marines. Complacency kills.
