Chapter 11 - Act III - Part 9


[08:12:31] Lt. Jaron voices the options for those that wish to capture the station "We can use horizants to sling a squad along with a group of canine drones vai cargo. Air teams will have to weaken the shields and structure first for attempting"
[08:13:24] GM: Note that the station is about 5 miles from top to bottom
[08:15:03] Lt. Jaron: "Im against this since taking the station isnt really something a stumbling group would do"
[08:15:06] GM: And there is the caveat that the Commodore has imparted that, any attack has to look like the UEEF found the location by accident.
[08:15:37] GM: Well, scratch Operation Secure and dust off Operation Drunken Fratboy
[08:16:41] GM: Or Operation Viking, put pointy horns on your helmets and stock torces in your packs and set the place on fire…
[08:16:44] Lt. Jaron: "So if you all wish to try and capture something I will say ground objective is more likely like a smash and grab"
[08:17:19] 2LT Komillia: ((Can we get a man portable EMP device?))
[08:17:21] GM: well, you guys ARE raiders…smash and grab is pretty much the job description
[08:17:42] Lt. Jaron looks to the others "voice ideas or opinions now" (I know)
[08:18:30] GM: I like sleep, thats where I'm a viking!
[08:18:35] 2LT Komillia: We could bring along an EMP, or a nuke if we feel destructive, and potentially disable a large chunk of the base on our way out.
[08:20:08] Cpl Summerwind: This operation needs more loot and pillage sir, oh, and more cowbell.
[08:20:48] Lt. Jaron nods "Could but I dont know how higher up will take to that." he looks to Summerwind "Indeed, would you actually join us if we was?"
[08:20:55] 2LT Komillia: Nah, it needs more Metal.
[08:21:20] Cpl Summerwind: Um, yeah, I mean, I AM part of the Company aren't I?
[08:21:46] 2LT Komillia: Anyway, I'll go dig out the pirate's cap and loot bag. Hey do these canines come with storage or am I going to need a duffle bag?
[08:21:47] Cpl Summerwind looks over at Komi.
[08:22:38] Cpl Summerwind: I agree, heavy metal would be more approprite for this, OOO OOO !! I could bring my NWA disks and we could all drive by on these bitches!
[08:22:58] Cpl Summerwind: Roll up in my six-fo!
[08:23:03] CWO3 Sarah snickers just a little bit.
[08:23:14] 2LT Komillia: I call the minigun!
[08:23:15] Cpl Summerwind makes a gun with her finger
[08:23:26] Cpl Summerwind: Pop pop pop, watchin motherfuckers drop!
[08:24:21] Cpl Summerwind: Oh, and the doggies can carry stuff, we can just load them up with empty cargo boxes, or even better, cargo boxes with grenandes that we can empty along the way.
[08:24:35] Lt. Jaron nods to Komi "Yea the drones carry cargo boxes"
[08:25:53] Lt. Jaron: "So we still want to try the station or go ground?" (can I roll mil etiquette to see if I know generally how the use of EMP or nuke would favored on this mission?)
[08:26:11] GM: Sure
[08:26:32] Lt. Jaron: [1d100] => [38] = (38) vs 85
[08:27:14] CWO3 Sarah blinks at that and nods about the drones.
[08:27:40] GM: From the meeting you were a party to, you figure not only would they not mind, but you should likely have your folks create a clip show complete with music of the explosion.
[08:28:47] CWO3 Sarah: (( lol ))
[08:28:51] 2LT Komillia: ((real me know Adobe Premiere and After Effects.))
[08:30:54] Lt. Jaron ponders a moment "If we go for station, we just blast the hell out of it. Simple. If ground; we smash and grab."
[08:31:59] CWO3 Sarah frowns a little bit. "Any idea whether the station handles fuel distribution as part of its regular resupply? If we went after it, we might have a chance to secure more."
[08:32:33] GM: A very good quesstion
[08:32:56] GM: there's even an answer to it
[08:33:11] GM: who do you ask?
[08:33:30] CWO3 Sarah: (( the room at large ))
[08:33:37] GM: sorry this isn't harry potter, a piece of paper with the answer wont magically poof into the room
[08:33:41] Lt. Jaron (enter): 20:33
[08:33:52] CWO3 Sarah: (( mostly Jaron who was at the meeting really. ))
[08:33:55] CWO3 Sarah: (( or anyone who was there. ))
[08:34:01] Attempting to assign the role of Player to (6) Lt. Jaron…
[08:34:18] Lt. Jaron: (Last thing I saw was my post after komi's)
[08:34:31] GM: (1) CWO3 Sarah frowns a little bit. "Any idea whether the station handles fuel distribution as part of its regular resupply? If we went after it, we might have a chance to secure more."
[08:35:36] GM: anyone?
[08:36:07] GM: I have info, I just can't give it away is all…
[08:36:46] 2LT Komillia goes brain tapping an intell agent.
[08:37:12] CWO3 Sarah: (( well gee, who did I say I asked, specifically? The guy who'd know who to find out from ))
[08:37:23] Lt. Jaron: "It a resupply station but they wish it gone rather captured since it inside the Haydonite infrastructure."
[08:38:58] Cpl Summerwind: Man you guys are going about this all wrong, well, maybe not you chief. You're kinda getting it.
[08:39:24] Cpl Summerwind rocks back and forth on a chair.
[08:40:26] Cpl Summerwind: Well, you to.
[08:40:30] Cpl Summerwind looks at Komi.
[08:41:00] CWO3 Sarah looks to Summerwind and smiles a little. "Was wondering if I should talk to someone up the line about things like that. Removing it helps nothing, if we lose by having all our ships fall dead in space to be picked off. Any time resupply or potential refuling base comes up, that has to be kept in mind."
[08:41:07] Lt. Jaron: "Ok we capture it but if Haydonites get a message through, we'll be in a longer fight but if you wish to to try we can."
[08:41:32] Cpl Summerwind groans at the 1st Lieutenant and shakes her head.
[08:42:10] Cpl Summerwind: You gotta think dirtier then that.
[08:43:02] 2LT Komillia: We blow up their communications with a massive ammo explosion!
[08:43:12] Cpl Summerwind: Good good, getting warmer.
[08:43:23] Cpl Summerwind seems to be enjoying herself.
[08:43:31] Lt. Jaron: "I already voiced my opinion on taking the station via Horizants cargo"
[08:44:05] Cpl Summerwind: Sounds okay, but might I offer a switcharoo of teh wording
[08:44:18] Lt. Jaron nod
[08:44:29] Cpl Summerwind: Take the station cargo via Horizont.
[08:45:04] CWO3 Sarah nods quickly. "Take the cargo, then leave something if possible to look like we're still there, and draw them aboard to a set bomb
[08:45:59] 2LT Komillia: Okay, do add a shark tank in their floors while we're at it?
[08:47:01] Lt. Jaron nods to Komillia's question "Yea plus it will take more manpower to fill the cargo boxes quickly"
[08:47:02] Cpl Summerwind: You guys ever watch those old earth fantasist shows?
[08:47:08] CWO3 Sarah laughs at Komi and raises her eyebrows.
[08:47:14] CWO3 Sarah blinks at Summerwind.
[08:47:26] Lt. Jaron quirks a brow
[08:48:27] Cpl Summerwind: Yeah, fantasy. Anyhow, there was this one show had those big eared guys, Ferrenici , or fennodi or soemthing like that.
[08:49:24] No match found
[08:49:32] CWO3 Sarah blinks a little
[08:49:42] Lt. Jaron: "Totally lost me Anji"
[08:49:56] Cpl Summerwind sighs.
[08:51:06] CWO3 Sarah scratches her head. "I know I've seen some ofe that show, trying to remember what I saw of it."
[08:51:31] Cpl Summerwind: Okay, anyway, end of the staff, we should think like thieves. Take everything thats not carbon welded to the deck that we can carry and make off with it, wreck up the place and light out of there before the five oh arrive.
[08:52:14] 2LT Komillia: I like it…
[08:52:16] Cpl Summerwind: You guys aren't thinking like thieves, your thinking like Girl Scouts
[08:52:22] Lt. Jaron smirks
[08:52:26] CWO3 Sarah: "I am?"
[08:52:30] CWO3 Sarah raises her eyebrows
[08:53:32] Lt. Jaron smiles slightly "Professional thieves usually have anything planned out to avoid being captured but anyways."
[08:53:36] Cpl Summerwind: Well you were resistance right chief?
[08:53:54] Cpl Summerwind: You know what it's like to scrape by, and loot like your life depended on it,
[08:53:56] Lt. Jaron: "We can use the Horizants cargos as entry and evac"
[08:54:09] CWO3 Sarah nods quickly. "Yep. We'd take all the protoculture then leave a trap for when they got there."
[08:54:13] CWO3 Sarah smiles a little.
[08:54:33] Cpl Summerwind: There's hop for you yet…ma'am.
[08:54:38] Cpl Summerwind: ((hop = hope))
[08:54:42] CWO3 Sarah: "that's why I suggested the other part, to take out part of the enemy even after we go."
[08:54:59] Cpl Summerwind looks over at Jaron.
[08:55:44] Cpl Summerwind: I agree, I'm not suggesting we go in there like a Zent infantry platoon, all hurr durr and shit. But the goal should be all nefarious and what not.
[08:56:01] CWO3 Sarah laughs.
[08:56:30] Lt. Jaron nods "Correct."
[08:57:31] That's the Tab key, Dave
[08:57:44] Lt. Jaron: "So we all entering the station or someone flying cover?"
[08:58:00] 2LT Komillia: Nefarious, nefarious….
[08:58:21] Cpl Summerwind: Well I can't fly, so I'ma bring a Devo!
[08:58:56] CWO3 Sarah: "We'll have to enter, to provide support to the swipe, and disrupt the normal operations enough to let it happen without all the cargo seizure attempts being shot down."
[08:59:31] 2LT Komillia: Agreed on the heavy firepower.
[09:00:15] Cpl Summerwind paints 'Plunder Bunny' on the side of her Devo
[09:02:32] Lt. Jaron: "1. Combat air forces need to clear air space. 2. Horizant cargo entry but where? 3. Locate protocul source and grab as much as we can. 4. Evac. Damn though, it not going to be that simple"
[09:03:11] Server Administrator-> Kicking '(3) Lt. Jaron' from server… Removing dead client
[09:03:12] Lt. Jaron (exit): 21:03
[09:05:29] Lt. Jaron: "Along with placing some heavy explosives somewhere"
[09:05:31] CWO3 Sarah: "How much does intelligence know of the floor plan or anything, beyond the location? It won't help matters if the horizons pull up and find Revenants ready to synchro cannon them at the cargo bay. We may need to know if we can fit larger mecha in, if that's the case. The station is far and away big enough for the possibility."
[09:06:51] Cpl Summerwind shrugs
[09:06:53] Cpl Summerwind: Iono
[09:07:54] Cpl Summerwind: Who's the residant toaster expert?
[09:09:09] CWO3 Sarah looks to Jaron, and looks around to see who else might be there to know.
[09:09:13] Lt. Jaron: "no layout info"
[09:09:28] Lt. Jaron: "Or it would have been easier for me to agree"
[09:10:31] Cpl Summerwind: Well, Im'a see about my Devo and those attack dogs.
[09:12:03] GM: okay so…
[09:13:05] Lt. Jaron: (how many drones can fight in a cargo?)
[09:13:13] Lt. Jaron: (how many devos?)
[09:14:10] GM: a fair amount, but I'm assuming you want room for what ever your grab as well
[09:15:06] CWO3 Sarah looks to Anji. "Suki knows more about the Haydonites than anyone, but that's if she's available."
[09:15:54] GM: I'll asusme that Anji = Jaron since Anji left a bit earlier.
[09:16:05] GM: To check on her devo and puppies
[09:16:06] CWO3 Sarah: (( … nevermind that then. ))
[09:16:51] Lt. Jaron: (can I get a few special cargo boxes to drop mines?)
[09:17:36] GM: those are speciality , as in a dedicated Minelayer, but there are missile options
[09:17:49] 2LT Komillia goes to make sure her Devo's shoulder weapons are the energy weapons.
[09:18:22] CWO3 Sarah wanders over to go see if Suki is available to contact, then, to send those kinds of questions on to, at minimum.
[09:18:31] CWO3 Sarah: (( over to a comm terminal, rather. ))
[09:19:00] Lt. Jaron: (nah, wanted a few to run the halls laying remote miners)
[09:19:25] GM: Sarah, you make a call and presnelty Suki answers. It's obvious you caught her in the shower by the state of her undress and the fact she is dripping wet.
[09:19:43] CWO3 Sarah ooohs at the state of undress, licking her lips and watching appreciatively as she talks.
[09:19:45] That's the Tab key, Dave
[09:20:05] GM: Well, you have claymores and satchel charges and stuff like that, but no, no device that will deploy them
[09:20:36] Maj. Kavashera smiles as she dries her hair somewhat.
[09:20:44] CWO3 Sarah: (( eee ))
[09:20:47] CWO3 Sarah: (( brain bleach ))
[09:20:50] Maj. Kavashera: ((sorry…worng alies…silly Open.
[09:21:16] Cpt. Ishida: ((yeah, indeed)
[09:21:17] CWO3 Sarah: (( hehehehehe ))
[09:21:20] CWO3 Sarah: (( :) ))
[09:21:25] CWO3 Sarah: (( gotta tease, sorry ))
[09:21:37] Cpt. Ishida: Konichiwa Chief, nandesuka?
[09:22:03] GM: Komi, your Devo is outfitted to your specs
[09:22:38] GM: By the way Komi, what mecha are you going to take?
[09:23:56] 2LT Komillia: ((ack, er I gues I'll try the Scorpion))
[09:24:29] 2LT Komillia: ((or whatever you are calling the Variable Glaug))
[09:24:38] GM: Skorpion
[09:25:27] CWO3 Sarah smiles to Suki gently. "Hi there ma'am. Always glad to see so much of you." She winks. "Anyhow, we're planning the big attack, and pointed out some stuff that no one actually actually thought of. Mainly in the floor plan…" She tries to quickly outline what's being discussed, along with her question about the corridors and possibility of the Revanants showing up during the mission.
[09:25:53] CWO3 Sarah: (( or some short version ))
[09:26:19] Cpt. Ishida: Ah, soo desu neh. Give me a minute.
[09:26:34] CWO3 Sarah nods and smiles. "Okay."
[09:26:40] Cpt. Ishida dries up and slips into a tank top and then sits at her terminal.
[09:27:04] Cpt. Ishida: Okay, what can I help you with?
[09:27:22] Cpt. Ishida says as she does up her hair into it's trademark ponytail/topknot
[09:28:29] GM: The feed can be projected onto the squad room briefing screen or, you can all crwd around the smaller terminal… your choice
[09:28:49] GM: Either way, she can hear all of you and you all can hear her.
[09:29:19] CWO3 Sarah sighs. "Well, with the attempt to snatch and grab underway, ,we're plotting out how to best keep it covered from all angles, and how to prevent hiccups in it. Question becomes that base layout, and what might be needed to clear the cargo holds for the grab. as I pointed to Jaron, it won't help if we get Horizons there after clearing a path and end up getting them cannoned by revenants. Seeing the size of the station relative to more familiar things, I was worried they might have corridors big enough to fit a larger mecha through, when we were trying to board in Cyclones."
[09:29:33] GM: and Jaron gets the fan service, sorta
[09:29:39] CWO3 Sarah: (( lol ))
[09:29:53] CWO3 Sarah: (( *tries to cover that, in jealousy* ))
[09:30:44] CWO3 Sarah: "Not to mention your expertise on the enemy in relation to the plan overall."
[09:31:07] GM: ((on the big screen, fat chance (besides the view only shows her from teh waist up…))
[09:31:24] CWO3 Sarah: (( dang, okay ))
[09:31:26] CWO3 Sarah: (( lol ))
[09:31:50] Cpt. Ishida: Hmm, well, using cyclone would be a poor choice.
[09:32:13] Cpt. Ishida: Remember reavers are nine foot tall.
[09:32:34] Lt. Jaron: "Devos"
[09:32:37] CWO3 Sarah nods a little. "That's what worried me. The corridors will be big enough to fit Alphas into, then? They were discussing Devos at the moment."
[09:34:44] Cpt. Ishida: The service areas and hanger spaces will fit Alpha's easily. But interior corridors no, possibly in Guardian mode, but you would have no manuverability.
[09:36:32] CWO3 Sarah nods just a little bit. "Understood. I'm mostly worried about service areas with that, particularly securing cargo holds for the Horizons."
[09:36:54] CWO3 Sarah: "or particularly worrid about that, at least."
[09:37:33] GM: anyone else gonna sask / say anything?
[09:37:42] CWO3 Sarah: (( jabs the others ))
[09:37:45] CWO3 Sarah: (( :p ))
[09:37:55] GM: this is info dump time with a familier face …
[09:38:12] GM: either this or a paranoid intell officer that might give you the need to know line…
[09:38:49] Lt. Jaron: (Im dont have any)
[09:39:01] GM: really?
[09:39:54] CWO3 Sarah: (( I can just imagine the smile and "Very well, when we're sitting without fuel and having ships blown apart one by one for it, I'll point out to you that we needed to know, then.", on the paranoid intel guy, from one of my chars :p ))
[09:40:05] Lt. Jaron: (just need layout and location)
[09:42:17] Cpt. Ishida: The upper areas would hold the station, , built into the rock.
[09:43:30] Cpt. Ishida: The lower portions would be the service areas, based on photo recon, it seems that up to eight capital ships can be docked at one time. We assume that the smaller, frigate class ships are able to be taken inside for resupply.
[09:44:32] CWO3 Sarah: "So we should be ready for possibly full ships worth of mecha and personnel to be there to support them, potentially, yes?"
[09:45:20] Cpt. Ishida: Not if all goes well on Tiro.
[09:45:46] CWO3 Sarah nods. "Well, hopefully it will all go there."
[09:45:51] CWO3 Sarah: (( go well there ))
[09:45:51] Cpt. Ishida: Anyway, what enemy ships remain at the station should be in various states of repair.
[09:46:03] CWO3 Sarah nods just a little, listening intently.
[09:46:41] Cpt. Ishida: You should expect a CAP , and the station looks to have a modest defence capability. There may be a few frigate class ships on patrol as well, but nothing front line.
[09:47:05] Cpt. Ishida: Nothing your Garfish and Hayes can't handle.
[09:47:23] CWO3 Sarah nods quickly. "One less worry then."
[09:48:19] Cpt. Ishida: You should only have a Fantoma in the external docks, last photos saw her damaged.
[09:48:48] Cpt. Ishida: I do not know how fast they can repair smaller ships so I cannot say what awaits in the frigate bays.
[09:49:44] Cpt. Ishida: Beyond that, basic station layout is universal, fuel and weaponry will be stored as far away from the main hub as possible and the power supply will be well shielded.
[09:49:51] CWO3 Sarah nods. "That's more what worries me, that smaller ships might be getting shown up. As long as the Garfish and Hayes don't get swarmed with them." She nods. "True."
[09:50:12] CWO3 Sarah ponders that. "Fuel of course is a priority take."
[09:51:28] Cpt. Ishida nods
[09:51:35] Cpt. Ishida: Anything else?
[09:51:43] Cpt. Ishida looks aroudn the 'room'.
[09:52:03] CWO3 Sarah looks around and to the others.
[09:52:24] CWO3 Sarah also tries to think of anything else important to ask [1d100] => [3] = (3) tactics vs. 94%
[09:54:06] GM: well, thats a damn good roll
[09:54:12] GM: what would you like to ask?
[09:54:32] 2LT Komillia: ((honestly my mind is refusing to stay on topic…))
[09:54:59] CWO3 Sarah: (( … ))
[09:55:01] CWO3 Sarah: (( eep ))
[09:55:42] GM: Based on that roll, I will give Sarah on FREE gimmie inside the station when requested.
[09:55:51] CWO3 Sarah: (( kk ;) ))
[09:56:20] Cpt. Ishida: Oh, one other thing, please bring back as many heads as you can.
[09:56:21] Lt. Jaron: "Where is the main hub?"
[09:56:36] Cpt. Ishida: Main hub is the area within the asteroid.
[09:56:36] CWO3 Sarah blinks. "Collecting heads, ma'am?"
[09:56:41] Cpt. Ishida: Yes
[09:56:56] Cpt. Ishida: Very important.
[09:57:19] CWO3 Sarah: "So no sniping them in the big red spot. Okay."
[09:57:28] Cpt. Ishida: I will see about having a piece of equipment sent to you that will explain why.
[09:57:37] Cpt. Ishida: Correct.
[09:57:41] CWO3 Sarah smiles.
[09:58:06] 2LT Komillia: ((it's not being dead, I just can't think of things dealing with Robotech right now.l))
[09:58:13] Cpt. Ishida: Also, when that piece of equipment arrives whoever is placed in charge of it must not allow it to fall into enemy hands.
[09:58:42] Cpt. Ishida: Am I clear on that point?
[09:58:45] Cpt. Ishida asks the room.
[09:59:24] Lt. Jaron nods
[09:59:26] CWO3 Sarah blinks at that and nods.
[09:59:43] GM: Ishida nods and then closes the line.
[10:00:05] Lt. Jaron ideas run through his head
[10:00:08] GM: As you prep your gear and load up onto your ships a package arrives under guard.
[10:01:10] CWO3 Sarah blinks at the package coming under guard.
[10:01:28] GM: They guards sign it over to Jaron as he is in charge.
[10:01:56] Lt. Jaron takes the package and soon lays it on the table to open
[10:02:47] GM: The dvice is about the size of a camcorder (80's style I.e. like what Sue Graham had in the show) The lens arpature however looks just like a Haydonite eye, becuase thats exactly what it is.
[10:03:11] Lt. Jaron steps back
[10:03:28] 2LT Komillia: Creepy…
[10:03:36] Lt. Jaron: "indeed"
[10:04:25] GM: There is a disk as well.
[10:04:44] Lt. Jaron puts the disk in to play
[10:05:12] Cpt. Ishida: Please make sure the area is secured then continue."
[10:05:23] GM: the image of Suki pauses
[10:05:25] Lt. Jaron looks around
[10:05:27] CWO3 Sarah blinks at that and looks around.
[10:06:07] 2LT Komillia looks for unsecurity. [1d20] => [4] = (4) perc
[10:06:20] GM: Squirrels have infiltrated your pant leg
[10:06:37] 2LT Komillia: ((Oooh, Space Squirrel, from Space Australia))
[10:06:53] Lt. Jaron plays it
[10:07:07] CWO3 Sarah: [1d20+1] => [20,1] = (21) perc for my look around
[10:07:09] CWO3 Sarah: (( ooh ))
[10:07:54] 2LT Komillia: ((you here Nirvana in the background.))
[10:08:08] 2LT Komillia: ((and you can understand what they are mumbling and screaming))
[10:08:13] CWO3 Sarah: (( or see clear into the future or something… wait, don't have that power. Oh well. ))
[10:08:14] CWO3 Sarah: (( hehehe ))
[10:08:16] Cpt. Ishida: The device you have is one of 3 in UEEF service. So, do not lose it. That being said, this should help you manuver within the station. Based on my findings the Haydonite do not use interfaces like we do.
[10:09:03] Cpt. Ishida: This device will allow you to open nonsecured doors as well as access non secured Haydonite systems.
[10:10:27] Cpt. Ishida: Also, it will allow you to read Haydonite. The Haydonites use a form of quantum barcoding for information on walls, over doors and on crates and the like, much like we use lables. This will allow you to decipher signage you run across.
[10:11:35] Cpt. Ishida: As you may have noticed, the devices prime compoanant is a haydonite optical unit, the technology in these units cannot be replicated at the present time.
[10:12:27] Cpt. Ishida: Hense the order to retireve as many 'head's as you can. Please, do not try to remove the optical unit yourself as you will likely ruin the specimen in the process.
[10:12:34] Lt. Jaron: "Sarah, I think you should keep it incase things go bad, you can port with it out"
[10:13:07] CWO3 Sarah gulps a little at that and nods. "Er, yes, sir. If there's somewhere safe to port to, anyway…" She suddenly looks a lot more nervous.
[10:13:28] Cpt. Ishida: The instuctions for the usage of teh device is on the next track and is quite simple, point and shoot. That is all, Good hunting.
[10:13:42] GM: the disk goes into standby.
[10:14:04] 2LT Komillia: So no head shots for me.
[10:14:21] Lt. Jaron: "We dont need all the heads Komillia, so its ok"
[10:15:27] Lt. Jaron plays the next track
[10:15:36] CWO3 Sarah suddenly looks a lot more nervous, watching the next track as well.
[10:17:46] GM: The track is some tech dude explaining the usage of the device, behind the technobabble the device is pretty easy to use, the actual use is pretty much, point, scan, and read. the device has a recording unit that can hold a terra byte of info, and it can link to a recording unit with more storage if one is carried. The rest of the track is basically the 'care and feeding of your optical reader'
[10:18:48] CWO3 Sarah looks to Jaron. "I'm guessing we should take the one with more storage…"[10:19:13] Lt. Jaron nods
[10:21:16] GM: Okay, Jaron you want a EWO…
[10:21:57] GM: so you will be in a legioss, which means that you will likely NOT be able to enter the hub area of the station unless you leave your aircraft.
[10:22:43] GM: this will also 'tether' you to the area in which your ROV's are in play as you know Haydonite jamming will be ever present
[10:23:05] CWO3 Sarah: (( hehehe ))
[10:24:07] GM: Anji also reports that she's been able to score a pair of doggies. (any more will require someone with more pull…)
[10:24:53] CWO3 Sarah ponders a little. "Depending on how far away anything else, I should probably get myself familiarized as much as possible with a safe area on one of the Horizons or such, to teleport out to if I need to evac the unit…" She frows a little glancing over. "Might wanna talk to Suki or someone, we should be sending more of the pups to keep inside forces busy, I'd think."
[10:25:05] CWO3 Sarah: (( hehe ))
[10:25:42] GM: Anji is a Corperal…I don't really think Suki needs to be involved with this do you.
[10:26:17] CWO3 Sarah: (( well, true ))
[10:26:21] 2LT Komillia requistions more goggies. [1d100] => [16] = (16) vs 80 Mil Ettiquette.
[10:26:34] Lt. Jaron: So question cause Its unclear for me at this moment, the horizant landing inside somehow or tossing the cargo?
[10:26:53] GM: Goggies…wow
[10:26:58] CWO3 Sarah: (( goggies ))
[10:26:59] CWO3 Sarah: (( lol ))
[10:27:01] CWO3 Sarah: (( :D ))
[10:27:18] 2LT Komillia: ((lolspeakz))
[10:28:35] CWO3 Sarah: (( hehehe ))
[10:28:54] GM: Komillia, how many do you request?
[10:29:39] GM: The horizont will fit into the Frigate bays…
[10:29:42] 2LT Komillia: ((1 for each member or at least PC)
[10:29:57] GM: with all the benefits and risks that entails.
[10:30:25] GM: Loading them up will take time, depending on what is being laoded and where it was ripped off from.
[10:30:55] GM: Komillia, done and done
[10:31:15] GM: of course, if you are in space ina fighter…not much use to you.
[10:32:38] GM: So now, you can either decide now, or later, where exactly you will be, and what your focus will be. My only suggestion is not to try and do everything
[10:33:27] GM: Okay, so Jaron looks like he will be on the inside in a Silverback.
[10:33:28] GM: Ay?
[10:34:29] GM: Also, post your 'location , mecha, crew, and load out, in chapter 12 forums
[10:35:45] 2Lt. Aylanea: (( eek, okay. hrm. Well, depending on who we need inside or out, I could be either place. ))
[10:35:49] 2Lt. Aylanea: (( hrm ))
[10:35:52] 2Lt. Aylanea: (( *nods about forums* ))
[10:36:01] 2Lt. Aylanea: (( this is chapter 12, was the last log as well? ))
[10:36:16] GM: it will be once you go in
[10:36:22] GM: I think
[10:36:23] 2Lt. Aylanea: (( oh, okie ))
[10:36:24] 2Lt. Aylanea: (( hehe ))
[10:36:57] GM: yes it will be 12 when we go in, since this will be last capter 11 part
[10:37:36] Lt. Jaron: would a superior sensor array be able to penetrate the jamming?
[10:37:40] GM: well Jaron will be piloting a horizon in, then will hop into a silver back with McTabe
[10:37:54] GM: it would require rolls to defeat the jamming,
[10:38:02] 2Lt. Aylanea: (( hehehe. hrm. ))
[10:38:07] GM: so who ever you pick should have the relevant skill set
[10:38:19] GM: otherwise you will be at a disadvantage
[10:39:30] GM: and by first glane, none of the key NPC's in noble platoon have that skill set
[10:39:33] GM: glance
[10:39:49] Lt. Jaron: McTabe got them? I know she is techie but comms? Vinai would be the pick
[10:39:52] GM: nope
[10:40:00] 2Lt. Aylanea: (( hrm ))
[10:40:06] GM: and vinai is a ex PC and I'm not going to NPC him
[10:40:19] 2Lt. Aylanea: (( who was the computer expert a few chapters ago, did she have those kind of skills? ))
[10:40:25] 2Lt. Aylanea: (( few sesisons ago rather ))
[10:40:29] 2Lt. Aylanea: (( gah, sessions ))
[10:40:31] 2Lt. Aylanea: (( typing fail ))
[10:40:33] GM: in game tems his idea was neato keen and the RRG snapped him up or soemthing
[10:40:56] GM: computer skills would be Nova's fote, but that is irrelevent to jamming
[10:41:02] GM: forte
[10:41:07] Lt. Jaron: That would be Anji then
[10:41:16] 2Lt. Aylanea: (( yup ))
[10:41:18] 2Lt. Aylanea: (( lol ))
[10:41:22] GM: the skills you are looking for is Advance Electronic Warfare, Electronic countermeasures and the like
[10:41:27] 2Lt. Aylanea: (( you is stuck with the occifer hater ;) ))
[10:41:54] GM: prolly gonna be poed that she has to sit in a car and not get to blow shit up too…
[10:41:59] GM: but thems the breaks
[10:42:12] Lt. Jaron: she can blow some of the RCs up later :0
[10:42:14] Lt. Jaron: :)
[10:42:21] 2Lt. Aylanea: lmao
[10:42:22] 2Lt. Aylanea: :)
[10:42:50] Lt. Jaron: Just like on Black ops :)
[10:43:34] GM: okay, so Ay?
[10:43:40] GM: and Komi?
[10:45:11] 2Lt. Aylanea: (( *was sure she just said something…* hrm. ))
[10:45:26] 2LT Komillia paints her Skorpion red with green highlights.
[10:45:35] Lt. Jaron: for the RCs, grenade or c-40 type of explosives?
[10:47:36] GM: depends on the ROV
[10:47:54] GM: give me some options on some RL ROV's and I'll adapt them
[10:48:26] 2Lt. Aylanea: (( *sighs and tries to think* ))
[10:48:33] GM: ((just post that in your equipment post))
[10:48:53] GM: Carrie you can post later in your equipment list post, jut mke sure it's posed before game next week
[10:48:58] 2Lt. Aylanea: kk
[10:49:09] 2Lt. Aylanea: I'm mainly trying to figure who'll need the most support
[10:49:14] Lt. Jaron: 10 to 12" long, 4 to 6 wide; wheeled little vehicles. A small camera as well
[10:49:47] 2LT Komillia: ((all energy weapons and loading up the extra space around the cockpit with the gear she can't fit in the normal cargo area.))
[10:49:48] GM: Are you sure there will be gravity Jaron?
[10:49:54] Lt. Jaron:
[10:50:01] 2Lt. Aylanea: (( lol ))
[10:50:17] Lt. Jaron: nope….cool try vtol ones
[10:50:24] Lt. Jaron: cool=could
[10:50:40] 2Lt. Aylanea: (( we need Alpha/Beta versions of the Bad Company 2 UCAV helicopter ))
[10:51:23] 2Lt. Aylanea: (( get a full armed alpha version and… hehehe ))
[10:51:35] GM: link
[10:53:10] 2Lt. Aylanea: (( *digs for it* ))
[10:54:31] GM: okay, so game protion is over, Free RP if you want to, and I will answer what questions I can
[10:55:13] GM: and now I have a station to design…
[10:55:43] 2Lt. Aylanea: hehehe
[10:57:27] Lt. Jaron: (Im going to jet; drove all day. I shall post gear later. I will catch you all next weekend)
[10:57:35] GM: kk
[10:57:46] Lt. Jaron: Disconnecting from server…
[10:57:46] Lt. Jaron (exit): 22:57
[10:58:56] 2Lt. Aylanea: (( it's like an armed remote control toy helicopter ))
[10:58:59] 2Lt. Aylanea: hehehe
[10:59:25] GM: well not really armed, just has a laser desigantor and calls in a warhead from artillery
[10:59:26] 2Lt. Aylanea: a bit bigger than a toy one maybe, it has an MG by itself
[10:59:29] 2LT Komillia: Can I call it Airwolf?
[10:59:45] GM: whats airwolf? does Komi know?
[10:59:54] 2Lt. Aylanea: rotfl
[11:00:03] CWO3 Sarah: wee, Airwolf
[11:00:30] CWO3 Sarah: (( with my luck I'd probably be stuck in Caitlyn's spot. ))
[11:00:44] CWO3 Sarah: (( think that was the season 3 girl's name. lol. ))
[11:00:45] 2LT Komillia: ((you never watched Airwolf?))
[11:00:59] 2LT Komillia: ((you have led a sad, sad existance.))
[11:01:09] CWO3 Sarah: (( hehehe ))
[11:01:10] GM: ((I watched it religiously, but IC I doubt anyone would know about it))
[11:01:16] CWO3 Sarah: (( probably not ))
[11:02:30] GM: Santini Air FTW
[11:02:30] CWO3 Sarah: (( the idea is mostly arm a toy Beta with 2 foot wingspan with a couple M90 type weaps with expanded mags, to fly through the corridors shooting at people remotely. ))
[11:02:33] CWO3 Sarah: hehehe
[11:03:04] CWO3 Sarah: suppose the engines can't be miniaturized enough to make it work, tho
[11:03:17] GM: I have no issue with that, but don't get butt hurt when they are knocked out…and these thing will NOT have your PP or MECT bonuses
[11:03:23] CWO3 Sarah: hehehe
[11:03:23] 2LT Komillia: ((remember, Komi's a bit of a geek.))
[11:04:15] CWO3 Sarah: (( it's mostly a gag from a drabble series in the RT section of ffn, and a bad fanfic plot of mine. :p ))
[11:04:16] That's the Tab key, Dave
[11:04:21] CWO3 Sarah: (( but anyway ))
[11:04:56] GM: well, maybe your PP bonus, look on page 110 of the macross book
[11:05:29] GM: but to use this you have to dedicate your total attention to this, so, like in Bad Company, you better find a great hidey hole
[11:07:51] GM: so dont think for one second that you are Luca and can fight a Messiah and three Ghosts at the same time with your skill set
[11:08:06] CWO3 Sarah: hehehe
[11:10:33] CWO3 Sarah: lol
[11:11:27] CWO3 Sarah: :)
[11:11:52] GM: anyhow
[11:11:55] GM: Disconnecting from server…
[11:11:55] Chris (exit): 23:11
[11:12:48] 2LT Komillia: Disconnecting from server…
[11:12:48] James (exit): 23:12
