Chapter 12 - Act II - Part 6


[19:40:37]: Lt. Jaron heads toward the command vehicle as the team gets geared.
[19:42:15]: GM: You duck under the camo net and see a gaggle of CVR clad soldiers looking over a map board. Their armor is as weather-beaten dirty and grimy as the folks wearing them.
[19:42:54]: GM: A few look up at Jaron, then look back to the map as they talk amongst themselves.
[19:43:10]: GM: A crusty NCO walks up
[19:43:41]: UEMC MSgt.: Sumthin I kin help ye wit 'tenent?
[19:44:54]: Lt. Jaron: "My team has been reassign to help planet side. The 33rd MEU, Noble team"
[19:45:39]: UEMC MSgt. nods
[19:45:50]: UEMC MSgt.: How many and what ya geared wit?
[19:47:52]: Lt. Jaron: "Nothing special; cyclones mostly and a few beat up Devastators." (marcus and ay have alphas?)
[19:48:52]: GM: Yes, Ay and Shadd are in the nearby 'clearing' (as in a flat patch of land with no unduly massive rocks laying about.
[19:49:20]: Lt. Jaron notes to the Master Sergeant the alphas as well
[19:49:24]: GM: Well ain't that a mixed bag.
[19:49:33]: Lt. Jaron nods
[19:49:35]: GM: Says teh MSgt…
[19:50:08]: UEMC MSgt.: Major! Got some stragglers in from topside. Where you want em?
[19:50:33]: UEMC Maj. looks over. Taking measure of the young LT.
[19:51:07]: UEMC Maj.: Send em over to our right flank. Have em back up the colonials.
[19:51:56]: GM: Ay, the landing area has no replacements for you missiles.
[19:52:02]: GM: Sarah, roll a perc.
[19:54:14]: CWO3 Sarah: [1d20+1] => [11,1] = (12)
[19:54:16]: CWO3 Sarah: (( kk ))
[19:54:27]: GM: Sarah you sense a kindred spirit nearby
[19:55:30]: CWO3 Sarah blinks at that, looking around just a little bit to see if she can notice what she sensed, though she tries to keep attention to all the other things going on.
[19:55:53]: GM: You don’t see anything in line of sight, but you get a general direction
[19:57:04]: Lt. Jaron looks to the M.Sgt. "What is the situation on the right flank?"
[19:58:39]: UEMC MSgt.: Stable fer now. Toasters are probing our lines, trying to find a way in. The major fightings over with right now, but with them ships still duking it out in orbit, well, enemy ta'int given up yet so…
[19:59:02]: UEMC MSgt. points to the map board.
[19:59:18]: Lt. Jaron looks at map
[20:00:12]: CWO3 Sarah looks to see what the general direction is, noting that they're being told to check the right flank.
[20:00:34]: GM: The map shows the enemy facility in the center with a ring UEEF around it. A Half circle line 'shields' the station and you can see enemy ID markers opposing the 'line'
[20:02:53]: GM: A smattering of friendly units are sprinkled behind the line.
[20:03:57]: GM: Sarah your spidy sences ping your feeling to your West.
[20:04:11]: CWO3 Sarah: (( kk ))
[20:04:18]: GM: Prolly not so cut and dry, but meh, it works
[20:04:46]: Lt. Jaron nods to the sergeant "got a drive for us there or have to hoof it there?"
[20:05:19]: UEMC MSgt.: What, yer cyc got a flat?
[20:05:47]: Lt. Jaron: (drive=ride; hehe)
[20:06:02]: Lt. Jaron nods "Gotcha; we'll head out in 10"
[20:06:19]: UEMC MSgt. shrugs and half laughs.
[20:06:20]: UEMC MSgt.: Okay
[20:07:12]: GM: Allright so…what yall gonna do?
[20:08:35]: GM: work with me here
[20:09:34]: Lt. Jaron goes to gear completely and informs the others about their new task (afk)
[20:10:53]: GM: Sarah?
[20:12:14]: CWO3 Sarah looks over ot Jaron, gearing herself up and nodding quickly. She looks west, though. "There's something going on west of us, I can't make out what it is entirely clearly though, but I sened /something/. Not enough to divert mission or anything on. Especially not now. I'll let you know if I notice anything more, though. Just in case."
[20:12:31]: 2LT Komillia hates waking up in hosptials light years away…
[20:12:53]: GM: Lightyears, hon, you are in orbit over this hunk of rock…
[20:13:07]: GM: hope some Haydonite ship killer doenst squeek thru the pickets…
[20:13:52]: GM: Jaron is afk Sarah, have fun
[20:14:55]: GM: Okay…I'll be more plain…lol do something
[20:15:03]: GM: anything
[20:15:15]: CWO3 Sarah: (( … gee, thanks. ))
[20:15:19]: CWO3 Sarah: (( *sigh* ))
[20:16:10]: Lt. Jaron nods to Sarah "Madresa; take a recon flight and see what you see. We are heading the flank to strengthen it but I want a better lay of the land if you can get. If everyone else is ready; lets roll out"
[20:16:52]: CWO3 Sarah checks her gear and nods to Jaron. "Acknowledged. Yes, sir." She gets onto her Cyclone and gets ready to ride out behind Jaron, quickly.
[20:17:07]: Lt. Jaron ponde ra sec "Is it protoculture or something else?'
[20:17:54]: 2Lt. Aylanea radios in. "Acknowledged, launching now." She launches the Alpha up and flies up to get a better view of the battle, making a look to see if any other planes or up, or if she'ps about to get her butt shot off for trying it. [1d20] => [7] = (7) perc (for that)
[20:18:32]: CWO3 Sarah shakes her head. "more likee a familiar person. It mightbe Suki, I thought I sensed her in potential trouble earlier, but I didn't catch very much this time, so I can't be sure."
[20:18:58]: GM: kindred
[20:19:26]: GM: suki isn't kindred…
[20:19:32]: GM: not by a long shot
[20:19:47]: CWO3 Sarah: (( fine, lemme amend. :p ))
[20:20:55]: CWO3 Sarah looks out. "Familiar person. Possibly another Invid of some kind, possibly not. Again, not confirmable. I sensed Suki once in trouble, but it's not her… it's something else."
[20:20:57]: CWO3 Sarah: (( there, betterd? ))
[20:21:02]: CWO3 Sarah: (( *muttergrump* ))
[20:21:07]: GM: ((much ^_^ ))
[20:21:31]: Lt. Jaron nods as he gets his cyclone started "alright, just keep me posted if it close or on the move"
[20:22:19]: GM: As Sarah gets on her Cyc she hears a voice in her head, preceded by a mocking laugh.
[20:22:44]: Ahnhel: Oh for shame! Not even going to say hello to family?
[20:24:09]: CWO3 Sarah hmphs at the voice, responding quickly. *Was going to get to it, was wrapped up in getting to where I'm supposed to be. So what are you doing here?*
[20:25:47]: Ahnhel: Oh yes, I'm sure. Yes yes, respond to that tug on your leash. Oh, me, patching together their wounded, so drool. They should let me augment their soldiers with alchemy. So shortsighted.
[20:26:05]: Ahnhel: ((droll))
[20:28:34]: Lt. Jaron drives along; looking at the surrounding as he goes.
[20:28:45]: CWO3 Sarah: (( sorry, had to take piece of watermelon up, and got dragged into small conversation. ))
[20:29:05]: GM: Ay launches and begins a recon sweep. The trip doesnt take long, and she flies over some UEEF and Colonial ADA units as well as an artillery battery or two. In the air with a birds eye view Ay can see Anti Orbital artillery on both sides, fireing sperodically into the sky.
[20:29:06]: CWO3 Sarah shakes her head, mentally anyway.
[20:30:04]: CWO3 Sarah: Not an option, really. Anyway, nice to know you're at the party. Patching wounded means you might wind up seeing me later anyway.
[20:31:06]: 2Lt. Aylanea radios her report down to Jaron, including the positions of all the anti-orbital stuff, and the like, and watches the assignment area as she returns.
[20:31:15]: Ahnhel: Yes, you were always the bleeding heart, no cure for that I'm afraid.
[20:33:37]: CWO3 Sarah: Maybe. I've never had a boring moment though, for it.
[20:33:50]: Lt. Jaron coms Ay "Can you see any hostile force build up on the ground?"
[20:35:01]: 2Lt. Aylanea checks her sensors and her visual for any hostile buildup. [1d20] => [15] = (15) (perc) [1d100] => [24] = (24) rsi vs. 73%
[20:35:12]: GM: Not per se Ay, but, you do see where you have been ordered to go, well, probobly. There is a UEEF position on the far right flank with an OP behind it on some raised terrain.
[20:36:02]: 2Lt. Aylanea shakes her head. "Negative, I see where we're supposed to go though." She marks it for the others to see.
[20:36:16]: GM: As for troop build ups, you do see some, on the UEEF side, but they are vehicles you dont immediatly recognize. Each seems to have 6 legs and are very low to the ground.
[20:36:55]: GM: ((6 and four legged))
[20:37:08]: 2Lt. Aylanea sends an image of that as well, mentioning it as being on the UEEF side. "We using assault walkers now?"
[20:37:42]: 2Lt. Aylanea: (( you /know/ that movie is still around. lol ))
[20:37:56]: Lt. Jaron coms "We use some much different gear I wouldnt doubt it"
[20:38:11]: GM: I'll link in AIM…I forgot the spaces again, and I wont waste your time…
[20:39:50]: Lt. Jaron catches a view of them in his HUD "Understandable considering the terrain"
[20:39:56]: 2LT Kain Crokett: ((Spider-tank, Spider-tank, does whatever a Tachikoma can…))
[20:40:14]: GM: ((fuck Tachikoma's! fuck them in their spider asses!))
[20:40:49]: 2LT Kain Crokett: ((and here I thought I was the robosexual…))
[20:41:50]: CWO3 Sarah snickers on her comm at the mention. "The one with the single big gun on the front should almost have the six legs, for that. Anyway…" She glances over at Jaron. "Remember back when we were at ALuCE, after picking you up? The one I sensed recently was the girl from there, she's off handling medical in the rear areas."
[20:41:51]: GM: Ay, you are well ahead of the group. The other will take a good 30 minutes to reach the OP / UEEF Position
[20:45:37]: 2Lt. Aylanea keeps overwatch as such, looking to see if the UEEF position is in immediate trouble, in case she has to zoom in and assist before the others get there. [1d20] => [13] = (13) [1d100] => [68] = (68) vs. 73%
[20:45:44]: GM: Kain, you recieve word from the ship you are on (in LEO) where you rearm. The ADF Tonkin, that you are to launch in support of a push by your homeworlds forces in support of the UEEF's right flank.
[20:45:47]: Lt. Jaron nods "Vaguely Sarah, went through a lot back then"
[20:46:30]: GM: Ay, nothing but sporadic fire between entrenched units along a 5 mile line.
[20:46:44]: 2Lt. Aylanea: (( kk. hehehe. ))
[20:46:57]: GM: ((not literally trenches, just that the terrain allows one to dig in quite easily))
[20:47:20]: 2Lt. Aylanea: (( hehe, ah. ))
[20:47:43]: GM: ((correction Kain, AFS (Aquila Fleet Ship) Tonkin
[20:47:53]: 2LT Kain Crokett acknowledges the order and launches and swings toward the target area.
[20:48:02]: GM: The ship is part of teh ADF, Aquila Defence Forces
[20:48:27]: 2LT Kain Crokett: Lt. Kain Crokett, launching in support of ground forces.
[20:51:03]: GM: The launch officer that you have known for years laughs as you give him your full rank and name "Thanks for that KAin, might've forgotten, good hunting!"
[20:51:38]: GM: Ay?
[20:51:46]: GM: The others are in transit so…
[20:52:10]: GM: Or are you gonna pull a Loanstar….'Put her in hover Barf!'
[20:52:22]: 2Lt. Aylanea: (( *peeks* wat? Ah. ))
[20:52:33]: 2LT Kain Crokett: Got ya. It seems I won that bet with the bunny from the night shift.
[20:53:00]: 2Lt. Aylanea moves for the outpost, dropoing her altitude as she maneuvers for it, and looking for where to drop in to check in and reinforce a position.
[20:53:36]: GM: Ay, since your Legioss can go guardian, anywhere is a place to land.
[20:54:19]: 2Lt. Aylanea: (( anywhere that's clear, without people, and without activity about to immediately move through it, you mean ))
[20:54:38]: GM: But there is an area behind and below the OP where a pair of Alpha's are parked.
[20:54:53]: 2Lt. Aylanea maneuvers where the Alphas are, quickly.
[20:56:16]: GM: You also note you have been painted and tracked by friendly ADA radar since you took off, and as you land a pair of ACV-77's track you, then once you are down turn back to sweeping the sky with their search radars.
[20:57:33]: GM: You land, and a few crew ground your aircraft.
[20:57:44]: GM: ((as in degauss))
[20:57:47]: GM: anyway
[20:58:13]: UEMC Sgt. plants a ladder next to your cocpit.
[20:58:55]: UEMC Sgt. directs you to the OP in reply to your question of who do I check in with.
[20:59:03]: UEMC Sgt.: Major and Captian are up there, go easy LT.
[20:59:20]: 2Lt. Aylanea blinks at the degaussing, and hops from her cockpit almost before the ladder is planted, climbing down it quickly and nodding to the Sgt, walking quickly up for the OP. "Acknowledged. Thanks."
[21:00:50]: GM: As you enter you see a short female Captian in a familier CVR paint scheme (look all kinds of fucked up) a Major in Standard dark grey looking at a laptop sized comm station, on the screen is a Haydonite.
[21:02:19]: Executor Yovamel: …excellent counter to my advance. Oh yes, you have become quite the irritation, albiet a welcome one. Your fellows are , shall we say, so coarse in their tactics, you my dear Ishida, at least have a modicum of elegance.
[21:02:53]: Cpt Ishida (Scythe 2-5): I am honored I could please, I look forward to our next encounter.
[21:03:25]: Executor Yovamel: I am sure you are, and I might add, it shall be soon in coming. Until we meet again.
[21:04:48]: 2Lt. Aylanea blinks a little at the screen, as she walks up to check in, pausing justr a moment before continuing.
[21:04:57]: UEMC Maj.: Despite the pleastries, I must say, I don't approve of this communication with the enemy.
[21:05:36]: 2LT Kain Crokett: ((AFK))
[21:05:54]: 2Lt. Aylanea raises her eyebrows slightly, straightening up as she continues approach. "Reporting in for reinforcement duty…"
[21:05:55]: Cpt Ishida (Scythe 2-5): I understand, however, we at least know now that they have noted our movement and are likely to counter.
[21:06:23]: 2Lt. Aylanea trails off quickly then.
[21:06:53]: Cpt Ishida (Scythe 2-5) lets the major deal with Ay. Although she does nod.
[21:07:11]: UEMC Maj.: And you are?
[21:07:27]: 2LT Kain Crokett: ((back))
[21:08:01]: 2Lt. Aylanea straightens up. "Lt. Aylanea Madresa, sir. Lt. Fairman and others are on the ground, and will be checking in shortly as well."
[21:09:11]: GM: The rest of you are minutes out and have just passed a UEEF AOA (Anti Orbital Artillery) battery, and I must say, the sound is deafening, nd you figure where space not a vacuum, the sound of capital grade weaponry firing would be quite the racket.
[21:10:29]: UEMC Maj.: Well, more the marrier, what your number and laod out/
[21:12:32]: 2Lt. Aylanea gives a rundown on her loadout. "Most missiles spent, unfortunately, there weren't enough to reload them." She sighs. "Lt. Fairman and CWO Amdahl are on Cyclones, at the moment."
[21:12:50]: UEMC Maj.: Well, ain't that a pisser.
[21:13:01]: Lt. Jaron: (how many other do we have with us?)
[21:13:28]: 2Lt. Aylanea nods just a little bit. She glances to Suki as she says Sarah's name.
[21:14:05]: UEMC Maj.: Okay, once the rest of your crew arrives have you CO up here and move the rest of your folks to the far right. You probobly saw our colonial ground units moving up on you way in, Toasters ahve something up their sleeve.
[21:14:53]: GM: Ay, you dont see much of a reaction out of the cpatian, she is standing at the slit of the OP looking out over the battlefield with a pair of binoculars.
[21:15:18]: 2Lt. Aylanea nods. "Yes, sir, will relay orders immediately."
[21:16:20]: UEMC Maj.: Good, the ADF are sending ina flight for ground support, once they enter our AO in (checks his watch) 10 minutes, I want you in the eair to cover their CAS (Cloase Air Support) runs.
[21:18:00]: GM: Ay as you leave the OP an ADF Captian in CVR enters and the three officers inside talk shop.
[21:18:39]: 2Lt. Aylanea nods quickly. "Acknowledged." She heads out to relay all the orders for Jaron, moving in to get to her plane again for when 10 minutes are up.
[21:19:08]: GM: A few minutes later Jaron and Sarah show up
[21:19:15]: GM: (few as in 2 )
[21:19:35]: Lt. Jaron: (ok)
[21:20:04]: Lt. Jaron replies to Ay via "Thank Ay, see you in a bit"
[21:20:16]: 2Lt. Aylanea: (( hehehe ))
[21:20:38]: 2Lt. Aylanea climbs back into her cockpit to cover the inbounds, powering up quickly.
[21:21:22]: GM: Ay, your radar uplink locates a 4 ship flight of Colonial aircraft inbound from LEO
[21:21:57]: Lt. Jaron heads to the OP with Sarah
[21:22:16]: UEMC Maj. snaps his fingers and points to a map nanoseconds after you enter the OP
[21:22:33]: 2Lt. Aylanea flies up to meet the Colonial flight at the edge of the AO.
[21:22:54]: CWO3 Sarah follows behind Jaron, looking at the map quickly as it's pointed to.
[21:23:28]: UEMC Maj.: Since you guys are dismounted, I want you supporting an armor push. We have a pair of Colonial tank platoons going to drive forward. We have reason to believe that the enemy will counter in force. Do what you can to protect the tanks for enemy infantry.
[21:23:46]: UEMC Maj.: ((for = from))
[21:24:22]: UEMC Maj.: I have a platoon of infantry on the deck as well, so, spearhead that and take the edge off.
[21:24:36]: Lt. Jaron nods "Understood Major"
[21:24:45]: CWO3 Sarah nods quickly.
[21:26:22]: Lt. Jaron: "what forces has the enemy been using? sorry if it seems odd but we have a knack of running into new types of units"
[21:26:40]: UEMC Maj.: Funny you should mention that…Cpatian, if you please.
[21:26:52]: Cpt Ishida (Scythe 2-5): Yes sir.
[21:27:31]: Cpt Ishida (Scythe 2-5): We have reports from forward units on a larger enemy ground unit, bipedal, heavily armored and shielded, we've assigned the code name Ogre to this new mecha.
[21:27:41]: Lt. Jaron turns at the familiar voice
[21:28:02]: Cpt Ishida (Scythe 2-5): Now, we have ONLY seen this mecha used on the right flank.
[21:28:22]: Cpt Ishida (Scythe 2-5): This and the coloration leads me to believe it is a seperate unit from the Haydonite main body.
[21:28:37]: UEMC Maj.: Allegedly.
[21:28:55]: UEMC Capt. gives the Major an almost pained and annoyed look.
[21:29:02]: UEMC Capt.: Yes sir, as you say.
[21:29:31]: Lt. Jaron quirks a brow "Any other oddities?"
[21:30:10]: Cpt Ishida (Scythe 2-5): Also, we have been in communication with the enemy ground commander on this flank, a Executor Yovamel, he is, to be frank, different from the others. More, urbane.
[21:31:02]: Cpt Ishida (Scythe 2-5): Beyond that, we know that he reports to someone called Vicar Drythn.
[21:32:14]: Lt. Jaron nods slowly and looks the Major for reaction
[21:32:33]: UEMC Maj. remains silent and nods.
[21:33:08]: UEMC Maj. then adds.
[21:33:16]: UEMC Maj.: Those are the particualrs.
[21:33:42]: UEMC Maj.: One other thing…
[21:33:47]: UEMC Maj. looks at Ishida.
[21:34:15]: UEMC Maj.: Some of us believe and I am in agreement, that the units on this flank are here for, well, sport.
[21:34:31]: CWO3 Sarah blinks at that.
[21:35:04]: UEMC Maj.: The enemy knows their facility is lost, the only thing that keeps us from occupying it in force is the possibility of dedicated orbital bombardment.
[21:35:40]: Lt. Jaron nods "Thank you Major and we'll keep that in mind."
[21:35:44]: UEMC Maj.: However, it seems that the ground units are either trapped, and awaiting evacuation, or at least along this flank, here for kicks.
[21:36:08]: UEMC Maj.: This has been corroborated by Fleet as well.
[21:36:58]: Cpt Ishida (Scythe 2-5): That ship we say, in orbit over Anshen, is holding position in this planets L5 point…
[21:37:07]: Cpt Ishida (Scythe 2-5): ((say = saw))
[21:37:19]: Lt. Jaron: "Understood."
[21:37:31]: UEMC Maj. nods
[21:37:58]: UEMC Maj.: Then I will leave you to it, the operation starts in /checks his watch, 5 minutes.
[21:38:35]: Lt. Jaron gives a salute and exits
[21:38:51]: CWO3 Sarah nods quickly, saluting as well, and following behind Jaron.
[21:39:45]: Lt. Jaron asks Sarah once out of earshot "Did you know Suki was here?"
[21:40:45]: CWO3 Sarah looks over. "On the surface, yes. At this outpost? I hadn't sensed more since we were in orbit."
[21:41:07]: GM: As you leave you can hear the Maj and Cpatian exchange a few words. "I really wish you hadn't told them about the enemy communications…" "I apologize, I felt it was important for them to know all the angles…" "Fine fine, but their is such a thing as too much information." "yes sir, I will try to remember that sir."
[21:41:55]: GM: Sarah roll a perc.
[21:42:26]: CWO3 Sarah: [1d20+1] => [1,1] = (2)
[21:42:35]: CWO3 Sarah: (( eek, a squirrel ))
[21:42:58]: GM: Did you know! That Suki had a Squirrel in her hair, the ENTIRE time!?
[21:43:03]: CWO3 Sarah: (( lol ))
[21:43:10]: GM: Moving on
[21:43:16]: Lt. Jaron nods as they walk "Could you have sensed her before accurately?"
[21:43:26]: GM: Ay, you are airborne and in easy comm range of the inbound ADF flight
[21:44:41]: GM: Kain, your rader pings a friendly airborne target on an intercept course.
[21:46:29]: 2LT Kain Crokett: Hello, friendly. I'm Lt. Kain Crokett of the AFS Tonkin. You here to give me an escort,
[21:47:12]: CWO3 Sarah switches on her comm, smiling into her viewer at the ADF crew. "Lt. Aylanea Madresa here. Was told to escort you guys in, Yep."
[21:47:21]: 2Lt. Aylanea: (( brainfail ))
[21:47:23]: 2Lt. Aylanea switches on her comm, smiling into her viewer at the ADF crew. "Lt. Aylanea Madresa here. Was told to escort you guys in, Yep."
[21:47:28]: 2Lt. Aylanea: (( *kicks Sarah ouytta there* ))
[21:48:02]: GM: Sarah, I'll let you reply to Jaron, then we go to it
[21:48:09]: 2Lt. Aylanea: (( *still lols at the 1* ))
[21:48:25]: GM: Yeah, some significant other you are…
[21:48:40]: GM: Hurr Durr, I seez a SooKeee
[21:48:40]: Lt. Jaron: (lol)
[21:48:57]: GM: Sarah: BEWBS!!!
[21:49:12]: Lt. Jaron: (lol)
[21:49:13]: CWO3 Sarah shakes her head a little bit. "It's iffy at best, if I'd really been concentrating I might have. Probably should have been trying to sense more, but with that other girl here, I didn't want to hear peanut gallery comments about my Suki hunting."
[21:49:40]: Ahnhel: tell me Seren? What could possibly attract you to your little, admittedly well formed; monkey?
[21:49:46]: Lt. Jaron nods "the other can read your mind?"
[21:51:02]: 2LT Kain Crokett: Well, I'lll follow where you lead. Lt. Madressa.
[21:52:09]: CWO3 Sarah muttergrumbles softly. "Well enough. I'm not an expert at blocking it out. Remember how the setup was for us before. Everyone knew everything everyone else did. There's still some of that left." She sighs, and rolls her eyes slightly. *Not sure you'd ever totally 'get' it. But I am, it's mutual, and has worked out well. *
[21:52:26]: Ahnhel: Please tell me that once you tire with her that you will move on, or that you are using her to gain prestige, please give me at least that hope for our kind.
[21:52:39]: 2Lt. Aylanea nods, and escorts them in to where she was told to escort them. "Right on."
[21:53:12]: Lt. Jaron nods "Gotcha, well just ask her to stop for abit or I might have visit her"
[21:53:49]: Ahnhel: Oo, the monkey wants to visit me, that might be…entertaining. Is he adept in bed?
[21:54:34]: 2LT Kain Crokett flies his definitely-not-an-Alpha-or-Beta behind A.

[21:55:36]: GM: The four ship flight of VF-4's slot in behind the Legios. as the spider tanks move forward, their spider MRLS' having parked themselves in a support position a few miles to the rear.
[21:56:02]: CWO3 Sarah rolls her eyes at comments from the back, sighing. "That might not stop it either, unless you do something… unpleasant." She shrugs.
[21:56:45]: GM: Jaron, and Sarah, you meet up with the Armor push and it's infantry support.
[21:56:57]: 2Lt. Aylanea leads the VF-4s along, quickly, to the base.
[21:57:36]: GM: And, as you move forward, if it weren't for your Cyclone jump ability, it would seem the walker tanks have it much easier on this terrain then you do.
[21:58:07]: GM: ((thats a hint, motorcycle mode is useless here…))

[22:05:05]: GM: You see nada on sensors but you pick out a few good palces where experiance tells you the enemy would likely be.
[22:05:41]: CWO3 Sarah frowns at the places, making sure to point them out to Jaron, to confirm any data of his, getting ready to act quickily.

[22:08:21]: 2Lt. Aylanea: (( wow, bad rolls today ))
[22:09:05]: GM: Ay, you are on your own, Kain, you get your boys to back you up as a command action. Sarah and Jaron, each have three other UEEF as their command action
[22:09:26]: GM: Jaron, you may go first
[22:09:31]: 2Lt. Aylanea: (( hehehe ))
[22:09:59]: GM: Jaron, the area is ripe for an ambush, and lo, the enemy did just that, sensory, you get a few tell tales of enemy locations

[22:14:24]: 2Lt. Aylanea: (( hehehe ))
[22:14:51]: GM: You hit an enemy and deal damage, the enemy falls back under cover.
[22:14:53]: GM: NOTE
[22:15:18]: GM: All enemy are under cover here, so a NAT 12 or higher is required to even entertain the possibility of a hit.

[22:19:21]: 2LT Kain Crokett: I was gonna drop one of the bombs and then use a plasma to burn the cover away.
[22:19:29]: Cpt Ishida (Scythe 2-5): Lay a stick of cluster on top of the enemy, all other attacks at your discretion.
[22:19:54]: 2Lt. Aylanea: (( hehe ))

[22:34:48]: GM: One Revvie is terribly wounded, has lost all it's legs and topples to the deck. The other is nicked…
[22:36:25]: GM: Sarah, you leap over a suspect enemy position and your hunch pays off, you are able to get a burst off befire you weapon jams, you take an attack to clear the jam, (using your third attack, so only attack 1 hits,) roll damage.

[22:39:11]: GM: Still, paired weapons is something that has to be clearly stated, I see where you typed C's, but…
[22:39:25]: 2Lt. Aylanea sees the Revs come up from Cain's hits, and goes in after the nicked one quickly, firing her guns at it a couple of times. [1d20+14] => [4,14] = (18) [1d20+14] => [2,14] = (16)

[23:06:11]: CWO3 Sarah: (( lol ))
[23:06:13]: CWO3 Sarah: (( eep ))
[23:06:18]: GM: Ah, but the enemy still has tricks left.
[23:06:51]: GM: As the armor pushes forward the lead tank commander reports that he has movement ahead.
[23:06:56]: 2LT Kain Crokett: ((afk, puppy needs out.))
[23:07:21]: CWO3 Sarah: (( d'aww. ))
[23:07:22]: Lt. Jaron moves along with the armor "Moving up to check"
[23:07:24]: CWO3 Sarah: (( poor puppy ))
[23:07:36]: GM: Sarah, you have two actions and acommand action left
[23:08:39]: Lt. Jaron moves around the terrain then slows to look for an oddities or movement (perception [1d20+4] => [8,4] = (12); detect concealment [1d100] => [21] = (21) vs 80; detect ambush [1d100] => [30] = (30) vs 85)
[23:08:49]: CWO3 Sarah moves up along with Jaron to check the front, looking for anything out of the ordinary..[1d100] => [58] = (58) detect ambush vs. 80%, [1d100] => [68] = (68) detect concealment vs. 75% [1d100] => [75] = (75) tactics vs. 94%
[23:09:36]: CWO3 Sarah orders her commanded units to move up as well, to be ready to protect the armor from the movement detected ahead, if it's trouble.
[23:10:28]: 2LT Kain Crokett: ((back.))
[23:11:20]: GM: Sarah, you move up and are able to see exactly what the tank commander see's and is now firing at.
[23:11:37]: GM: The are at least 40 foot tall.
[23:12:00]: GM: And there are 6 of em.
[23:12:37]: Executor Yovamel: Well well well, let us see how you fare against these. Do tell me how this works out for you?
[23:12:48]: CWO3 Sarah swears as she points them out to the others. "That… is not good." She glances up for the air support. "We need the heavy equipment, I'm thinking."
[23:13:45]: Lt. Jaron: "roger that"
[23:15:03]: GM: Ay, your turn, you see these and the tank exchanging fire, and while the tanks are scoring direct hit, they do little to slow the enemy down, one enemy is taken out, but 3 tanks are taken out in the process.
[23:15:39]: Cpt Ishida (Scythe 2-5): [1d100] => [84] = (84)
[23:15:44]: Executor Yovamel: [1d100] => [83] = (83)
[23:16:01]: GM: ((thats a stalemate by the way))
[23:16:48]: GM: ((note, before anyone asks, these tanks aren't stupid, they ARE concentrating fire power…
[23:17:10]: Lt. Jaron: (tanks firing seperately at the target or focusing fire?)
[23:17:17]: Lt. Jaron: (nm)
[23:17:17]: GM: see above
[23:17:20]: GM: kk
[23:17:34]: 2Lt. Aylanea swears softly. "Ah hell, that's really lovely…" She cranks up engines, and fires three weapon bursts at one not being concentrated on. [1d20+14] => [3,14] = (17) [1d20+14] => [19,14] = (33) [1d20+14] => [4,14] = (18)

[23:18:07]: Lt. Jaron: (they=these)
[23:18:36]: GM: Ay, your first strike is dodged, these things nimble, the second strike hits, and the third strike is parried.
[23:19:01]: 2LT Kain Crokett: ((It's a GUNDAM!))
[23:19:18]: 2Lt. Aylanea: (( does the 2nd do anything at all to it? Or just bounce off a shield? :p ))
[23:19:29]: GM: And these things have shields, Your strike nails the target but the shields hold, and takes light carryover damage. BEST estimate, they are at LEAST as buff as a Revvie.
[23:19:40]: 2Lt. Aylanea: (( ah shit ;) lol ))
[23:20:41]: Lt. Jaron: (the shields tight the form of the mech or sphere shapes around them?)
[23:21:03]: GM: The enemy fires at [5d20] => [15,3,19,19,3] = (59) @ [1-2 Ay, 3-6 Tanks, 7 UEEF 8-9 Kain 10 ADF air] => 1-2 Ay, 3-6 Tanks, 7 UEEF 8-9 Kain 10 ADF air [5d10] => [10,10,7,8,10] = (45)

[23:23:44]: Lt. Jaron coms "Infantry, fire at the ground of the enemy mechs. Make the ground unstable for them, if possible focus on one side to make them lopsided"
[23:23:53]: GM: One of the VF-4 is hit hard and breaks off trailing black smoke
[23:24:14]: GM: ADF pilot "Frak, I'm done, I am RTB!"
[23:24:30]: Lt. Jaron: "Maybe corral them"
[23:24:35]: 2LT Kain Crokett: "Get back to base Sandolph. Your kids need you alive."
[23:24:43]: GM: A pair of UEEF infantry are vaporised by the other Ogre's atacks.

[23:26:03]: Cpt Ishida (Scythe 2-5): ((are = area))
[23:26:06]: Lt. Jaron grumbles and fires pair of missiles at the ground infront of the enemy mech [1d20+8] => [11,8] = (19) hoping to make is evade into fire or make it difficult to move
[23:26:33]: Lt. Jaron com "Roger that"
[23:26:41]: GM: [1d20+9] => [18,9] = (27)
[23:27:03]: GM: The enemy does a truster leap and all but dances out of reach of your missiles Jaron.
[23:27:21]: Lt. Jaron has his units do the same [1d20+7] => [20,7] = (27) [1d20+7] => [1,7] = (8)
[23:27:30]: Lt. Jaron: (ok)

[23:28:22]: GM: Alpha and the Omega right there..
[23:28:36]: CWO3 Sarah: (( hehehe ))
[23:28:46]: Lt. Jaron: (the field level or uphill, in a valley or what?)
[23:28:56]: GM: roll damage on you initial strike, and you lose one cmmand action next turn as your boys clear their jams or other issues
[23:29:11]: Lt. Jaron: [2d4*10] => 20
[23:29:28]: GM: Well kinda level, you say the pic of the terrain, so, it's uneven but in this area, generally level.
[23:29:40]: GM: (9say = Saw))
[23:30:15]: Lt. Jaron: (yea; just wondering)
[23:30:27]: UEMC Sgt.: Radio Triangulation [1d100] => [83] = (83)

[23:31:05]: UEMC Maj.: Well keep on it son, nail that bastard!
[23:31:12]: UEMC Sgt.: Sir!
[23:31:35]: GM: Kain
[23:32:15]: GM: I need a damage roll from you Jaron as well for your boys, remember 3 boys, at critical damage…
[23:32:48]: Lt. Jaron: [(2d4*10)*6] => 360
[23:32:49]: GM: ((well form your boys…I alread have your damage))
[23:32:55]: GM: There ya go..

[23:33:36]: Lt. Jaron: (not worried about shields; just terrain manipulation :) )
[23:33:42]: 2LT Kain Crokett has his two other wingman drop their OTHER bomb on target 1 at 1500 feet, while Kain launches his 4 plasmas at the left one, and then fires his gunpod twice at it.

[23:34:41]: GM: [1d20+9] => [7,9] = (16)
[23:35:33]: GM: The bombs are evaded, the enemy just jets into the air and lets the bomblets explode harmlessly on the gournd, of course, he wasn't expecting the Spanish Inquisition….err, I mean Plasma missiles.
[23:35:53]: GM: you GP hits as well
[23:35:57]: GM: both times

[23:37:45]: 2LT Kain Crokett: ((5 LRMS still left))
[23:37:57]: GM: Sarah
[23:38:56]: CWO3 Sarah watches as the jets take one out, nodding, and following Jaron's order for the moment, firing two missiles, and ordering her boys to do the same. [1d20+3] => [7,3] = (10) [1d20+3] => [18,3] = (21) [1d20+3] => [16,3] = (19)

[23:40:10]: CWO3 Sarah: (( abysmal ))
[23:40:12]: GM: Your missile are deflected easily by the shields
[23:40:26]: 2Lt. Aylanea: (( was the one I fired on the one destroyed? Or non? ))
[23:40:32]: GM: No
[23:40:40]: GM: You hit a freshie
[23:40:50]: GM: and it laughed at you piss ant damage
[23:41:08]: 2Lt. Aylanea moves in on the one she was targetting before, adjusting and firing her guns again, quickly, twice. [1d20+14] => [14,14] = (28) [1d20+14] => [14,14] = (28)
[23:41:11]: Haydonite Forces: HA HA HA! You suck!

[23:41:56]: 2Lt. Aylanea: S'what you get for saying I suck, dear.
[23:41:57]: GM: That Ogre is shredded.
[23:42:03]: 2Lt. Aylanea: (( hehehe ))
[23:42:24]: GM: With three down the other three retreat, and the arty strike Ishida called in hit empty ground.
[23:42:32]: 2Lt. Aylanea: (( d'oh. lol ))
[23:42:52]: GM: ((well she didn't make her roll so…it is what it is))
[23:43:03]: 2Lt. Aylanea: (( poor Suki ))
[23:43:21]: Vicar Drythn: Executor, I trust you finished playing with the humans?
[23:43:35]: Executor Yovamel: Yes my lord, your orders?
[23:43:35]: 2LT Kain Crokett: "Well, escort, it looks like we took one Ogre each."
[23:43:56]: Vicar Drythn: Return to the Penitant, your play is conculded.
[23:44:06]: Executor Yovamel: Yes milord.
[23:45:44]: Executor Yovamel: I am sorry adversary Ishida, I must leave you now, please thank your communications personel, they did try ever so hard. And your friends, tell them I enjoyed our little get together.
[23:46:29]: Executor Yovamel: Do try and stay safe, I would hate for you to get killed before I can truely defeat you.
[23:46:56]: Executor Yovamel: Hahahahahaha……..*
[23:47:38]: Cpt Ishida (Scythe 2-5): Grrrrr
[23:47:53]: Cpt Ishida (Scythe 2-5): Tch!
[23:48:43]: GM: The remaining three Ogres depart the feild in good order supporting the few Reavers still in operation.
[23:49:47]: GM: The ADF tank platoon's well, platoon, hunkers down and holds it's position, it's fighting capability effectivly stripped form it (5 out of 8 destoyed)
[23:50:39]: GM: ((I will call it here…))
[23:50:48]: GM: unless anyone want to RP further
[23:51:01]: 2LT Kain Crokett: ((I'm done.))
[23:51:12]: 2Lt. Aylanea: (( heh :p ))
[23:51:31]: Lt. Jaron: (are we suppose to hold here with them or head back?)
[23:51:51]: CWO3 Sarah looks at the tank group and sighs softly.
[23:51:57]: GM: Your orders were to screen the armor, so…
[23:52:14]: GM: With the enemy gone…you could probobly fall back…
[23:53:52]: Lt. Jaron: (Ok)
[23:54:38]: CWO3 Sarah looks over at Jaron.
[23:54:57]: GM: Note that your characters didn't hear the exchange between the Viacr and the Executor, only what the Executor siad to Ishida
[23:55:23]: Lt. Jaron looks to Sarah 'I think this was a ploy of some sort"
[23:55:30]: CWO3 Sarah: (( yeah. ))
[23:55:32]: CWO3 Sarah: (( lol ))
[23:55:32]: GM: so, based on that, it was a victory…
[23:56:03]: GM: Although, some, know they were stalemated, but will take the win regardless…
[23:56:25]: CWO3 Sarah glances towards the tanks. "However you figure it, it's at least partly mission failed, we didn't screen the tanks well enough, and lost most of them."
[23:57:06]: 2LT Kain Crokett: ((g'night))
[23:57:15]: CWO3 Sarah: (( nightnight ))
[23:57:30]: 2LT Kain Crokett: Disconnecting from server…
[23:57:30]: James (exit): 23:57
[23:57:33]: GM: nod a pyrrhic victory
[23:57:48]: Lt. Jaron: "There was nothing we could do against those Orges and we lead straight into an ambush. It was out of hands"
[23:58:34]: GM: If you wish to pull back to the OP others can join the RP…
[23:58:53]: CWO3 Sarah sighs, shrugs. "should we go back then? Or stay out here?"
[23:59:22]: 2Lt. Aylanea pulls off back to the OP, landing her Legios and quickly running the shutdown, to make sure and save fuel for it.
[23:59:35]: Lt. Jaron: "Lets head back, did the girl bother you during the fighing?"
[00:00:15]: GM: You rach the OP after a few minutes. A few aircraft fly over head.
[00:02:03]: CWO3 Sarah shakes her head. "No, but depending on why, that could be good or bad, considering."
[00:02:41]: Lt. Jaron stops fast hopping on approach and just walks to OP "I agree. You might wish to try and contact her yourself, if you can."
[00:03:31]: UEMC Maj.: …job on salvaging the push. Although I cant help but feel we won by default.
[00:04:03]: CWO3 Sarah nods to Jaron. "Either she stopped on realizing I was in a shootout, or she stoppd becasue the casualties started coming in thicker…" She trails off as they approach the OP.
[00:04:07]: Cpt Ishida (Scythe 2-5): I agree, it saw through most of my plans with ease. It is, a worthy foe.
[00:04:33]: UEMC Maj.: Dont let it get you down, no matter how good you are, there is always someone better.
[00:04:40]: Lt. Jaron stands at the door "Sirs."
[00:04:41]: Cpt Ishida (Scythe 2-5): Yes sir.
[00:05:46]: UEMC Maj.: Take a break, the front is stable for the tim being, and you've been at this for hours. Get some chow, get some sleep.
[00:05:52]: CWO3 Sarah stays quiet behind Jaron for the moment, glancing quickly to the others in the room.
[00:05:58]: Cpt Ishida (Scythe 2-5): Sir.
[00:06:15]: UEMC Maj. looks at the LT.
[00:06:26]: UEMC Maj.: Decent work out there. Thank for the help.
[00:06:48]: UEMC Maj. looks at his watch.
[00:07:12]: UEMC Maj.: Well, I have a tour of the lines to attend to, if thats all?
[00:07:42]: Lt. Jaron nods to Major "Thank you sir. Just wondering if you need us else where while we are here."
[00:08:17]: UEMC Maj.: It's only three of you, get some chow, and stay hear the OP, if I need you, I'll hollar.
[00:08:39]: Lt. Jaron nods and gives a salute "Yes sir." then exits
[00:09:13]: UEMC Maj. walks past you to a waiting jeep.
[00:09:43]: Lt. Jaron looks to Sarah and waits for the major to leave "Something is definitely troubling here, atleast for me"
[00:10:07]: CWO3 Sarah glances around quickly, nodding just a little. "Yeah." She sighs.
[00:10:38]: CWO3 Sarah looks towards where Suki is/was, quietly.
[00:11:11]: GM: The captian is still inside, looking over the field with he binoculars and making annotations onto a field map.
[00:11:46]: CWO3 Sarah looks over to her, worriedly.
[00:11:56]: GM: roll a perc
[00:12:48]: Lt. Jaron looks at Ay "How are you for muntions?"
[00:13:01]: CWO3 Sarah: [1d20+1] => [14,1] = (15)
[00:13:41]: 2Lt. Aylanea glances over. "I could use reloads on just about everything, by this point, actually." She shrugs.
[00:14:12]: GM: Sarah, you note taht Suki is emaciated, as if she hasn't had anything to eat in weeks. She had a myraid of bandainds on her face and her hands are wrapped up in bandages.
[00:14:39]: GM: had = has
[00:16:30]: Lt. Jaron nods to Ay "I will see if I can get you something if they havent already."
[00:17:34]: CWO3 Sarah blinks at that, frowning deeply at the view of her, and slipping closer to her very slowly, her expression turning very worried. "Ma'am?" She sighs, the thought coming through more clearly as 'Honey?', though she won't say it out loud in front of Jaron.
[00:18:14]: Cpt Ishida (Scythe 2-5) turns from her work on the map. "Yes Chief?"
[00:18:48]: Cpt Ishida (Scythe 2-5) 's eyes stare almost thru you in a classic 1000 yard stare.
[00:20:01]: 2Lt. Aylanea looks to Jaron and nods. "Maybe we should go look into that now, and let those two be together…"
[00:20:38]: UEMC Sgt. gets teh hint and leaves teh OP as well.
[00:21:03]: UEMC Sgt. sighs as he leaves the OP.
[00:21:16]: 2Lt. Aylanea: (( *prod Jaron lots* ))
[00:21:34]: 2Lt. Aylanea glances at the sighing Sgt, while… essentially trying to gently lead Jaron out.
[00:21:59]: Lt. Jaron nods to Ay "Yea, lets."
[00:22:19]: 2Lt. Aylanea nods, slipping out then.
[00:22:24]: 2Lt. Aylanea: (( hehehe ))
[00:22:37]: Carrie: (whispering to GM) rofl
[00:22:45]: UEMC Sgt. notes the glance and laughs nervously.
[00:23:02]: Carrie: (whispering to GM) s'like herding chickens
[00:23:15]: Lt. Jaron follows Madresa and helps her get refitted
[00:23:53]: GM: dont ignore the obvious, or the raod to info
[00:24:39]: Carrie: (whispering to GM) what, the Sgt?
[00:24:41]: Carrie: (whispering to GM) lol
[00:25:14]: Chris: (GM Whisper:) duh
[00:25:54]: Lt. Jaron stops and asks the Sergeant "Who do we need to talk to get my XO here reloaded?"
[00:25:56]: 2Lt. Aylanea glances to the Sgt. "Something on your mind?"
[00:26:40]: UEMC Sgt.: Supply officer, down that away /points. /looks at Ay. Umm, nothing ma'am.
[00:27:01]: 2Lt. Aylanea shakes her head. "It's obviously not nothing. Spill."
[00:27:17]: 2Lt. Aylanea: "Is there a problem with the Captain, where we shouldn't leave the Chief alone with her?"
[00:27:23]: UEMC Sgt.: Uhhh, about what ma'am?
[00:27:33]: UEMC Sgt.: Oh, oh the Captain.
[00:27:37]: 2Lt. Aylanea nods.
[00:27:53]: UEMC Sgt.: Well, I mean, I shouldn't talk you know…officer and all.
[00:28:50]: CWO3 Sarah meanwhile has her eyes welling up with tears at the view of Suki like that. "What happened… What's wrong?"
[00:29:53]: Lt. Jaron nods to the Sgt. then looks to Ay then back the Sgt "Good ahead, we used be in the same unit until she went intel"
[00:30:02]: Lt. Jaron: (good=go)
[00:30:03]: 2Lt. Aylanea raises her eyebrows. "Off the record. No one will know but us. Amdahl is really the one who probably needs to know, considering her relationship to the Captain, but…."
[00:30:37]: UEMC Sgt.: Relationship…huh…oh…OH! Sweet, err I mean, okay.
[00:30:50]: UEMC Sgt. looks at Jaron.
[00:31:10]: 2Lt. Aylanea gives the Sgt. something of a look at the reaction.
[00:33:42]: UEMC Sgt.: Okay, look, here's what I know. So, We land on this rock, seet and easy, toaster installation folds like a cheap suit. Okay, so, the Cpatian, she's part of the follow on team, goes in with the intell folks. Well, the toasters counter attack, and retake the facility, only, she doesnt make it out see. Okay, so, two weeks later, UEEF SAR bird picks her up about 15 miles northwest of the installation…
[00:35:07]: UEMC Sgt.: She's alone, half starved all that, wont let them take her back to base till she gets checked out. So, anyway, the float this doc ll the way out and give her the once over then bring her back, and she's been all distant and wierd ever since.
[00:35:29]: UEMC Sgt.: God knows what the toasters did to her.
[00:35:42]: UEMC Sgt.: I mean we all know they don't take prisoners right.
[00:35:58]: Lt. Jaron glances back at the OP then to the Sgt "The doc didnt say anything?"
[00:36:15]: UEMC Sgt.: I don't kow, I want there, thats just what I heard,.
[00:36:24]: Lt. Jaron nods
[00:36:29]: UEMC Sgt.: ((wasn't))
[00:36:39]: 2Lt. Aylanea stares. "Yeah, that's a very good question. Only place I heard of them having prisoners was…." She looks to Jaron. "Urt Balor…" She frowns. "Any way we might be able to find the name of that doctor?"
[00:36:42]: Lt. Jaron: "Thanks Sergeant."
[00:37:04]: UEMC Sgt.: Roger that. And hey, you all never heard nothing form me…okay?
[00:37:21]: 2Lt. Aylanea: "No problem. Nope. "
[00:37:28]: UEMC Sgt. beats feet.
[00:37:31]: Lt. Jaron nods
[00:37:58]: Cpt Ishida (Scythe 2-5) answers Sarah.
[00:38:16]: Cpt Ishida (Scythe 2-5): It's been a, long few weeks.
[00:38:26]: 2Lt. Aylanea looks to Jaron. "Remember what they were doing at Balor? Holy…"
[00:39:49]: Carrie: (whispering to GM) paranoia, watch it fuel itself
[00:39:50]: Carrie: (whispering to GM) hehehe
[00:39:55]: Lt. Jaron starts to walk with Ay to Supply officer location "Yes. Might have to keep an eye on her while we are here, I doubt the people here know her as well as Sarah or us"
[00:39:59]: Chris: (GM Whisper:) no joke huh
[00:40:40]: CWO3 Sarah pales, slipping closer. "It's been more than that, from the looks." She offers her hands out gently. "Please… Tell me what happened? And let me help you?" She tries to force down a sob, shivering softly.
[00:41:18]: 2Lt. Aylanea: "Sarah is alone with her right now. Hope she can tell if something is that far wrong. Otherwise…"
[00:42:47]: Cpt Ishida (Scythe 2-5): I was taken as a Prisoner of War Sarah, the facility was atacked, i was covering the witdrawl, I got knocked out, an then I was a priosner. They were going to kill me, but instead they kept me alive. I don't know why, but they did. I managed to escape and figured they must have let me, so I walked away from our lines…
[00:43:56]: Lt. Jaron looks to Ay "I hope so but seeing Sarah might be want she needs to re connect with herself"
[00:45:22]: Cpt Ishida (Scythe 2-5): I made them come and clear me before teh took me back. I made them! I didn't let them win Sarah. I didn't!
[00:47:49]: Cpt Ishida (Scythe 2-5): ((replace Sarah with Chief, sorry, it's late))
[00:47:50]: CWO3 Sarah 's expression turns from worry to outright shock at that, and the tears start coming, as she moves closer to cling to Suki softly. "Oh honey… I know you didn't…. I'm sorry…." She sighs, clinging to Suki, the tears still streaming.
[00:48:02]: CWO3 Sarah: (( yes, I'm typing. And no prob. ))
[00:48:13]: Cpt Ishida (Scythe 2-5) steps back.
[00:48:17]: Cpt Ishida (Scythe 2-5): Why are you crying?
[00:48:59]: Cpt Ishida (Scythe 2-5): ((lol and my rooms light bulb just died))
[00:49:41]: CWO3 Sarah: (( hehehe. ))
[00:50:00]: CWO3 Sarah: (( Karma or something. Or mood appropriateness, or such ))
[00:51:22]: 2Lt. Aylanea tries to quick tap and forward a message to Sarah's datapad, for later, in hopes it doesn't get there too late to stop anything bad.
[00:51:52]: GM: what do it say?
[00:51:54]: CWO3 Sarah: (( not that she even has one with her. :p ))
[00:52:37]: 2Lt. Aylanea: (( basically the brief description, without naming names, of what Sarah already partly found out, and the reminder of Balor. ))
[00:53:14]: CWO3 Sarah: (( *isn't gonna be noticing it until later anyway* ))
[00:55:00]: GM: kk
[00:57:31]: Lt. Jaron watches Ay type the message "I dont know if that was good or bad."
[00:58:24]: CWO3 Sarah blinks as Suki steps back, drooping further as that happens, her expression turning more worried, and the tears coming faster. "Why am I…" She starts to repeat the question, in a manner of utter shock. "Oh honey…"
[00:58:27]: GM: Oooo Ay, you gonna be in trouble for medlling! Ooooooo!
[00:58:37]: CWO3 Sarah: (( yes, I'm typing, I'm just thinking. :p ))
[00:58:45]: 2Lt. Aylanea: (( rofl ))
[00:59:38]: 2Lt. Aylanea shrugs. "Isn't it best to err on the side of caution?"
[01:00:19]: Lt. Jaron tilts his head back and forth alittle "You got me there."
[01:04:17]: 2Lt. Aylanea: "They know she's seen what live prisoners come out looking like, from there. If they wanted to make a plant of someone who knew that, making them refuse to come back until being checked would make sense. Though the other part doesn't, depending on point of view. I suppose making a show of being in shock would seem more authentic, though…" She shrugs. "But then, maybe I've seen too much bad drama along that line."
[01:04:26]: Cpt Ishida (Scythe 2-5): You shouldn't cry. I didnt let them win.
[01:11:28]: Lt. Jaron looks to Ay "Its definitely something I dont want to happen and probably not even think about. It would be devastating to Sarah"
[01:13:14]: CWO3 Sarah doesn't stop crying, though she tries to gather herself up some. "Honey, please… Come back to me…" She sighs very quietly, looking down at the spot Suki backed away from. "Honey I'm sorry… I should have gotten here sooner, somehow… I knew something was wrong, I could sense it clear from orbit…" She tries to sense to see if she can find more of what's wrong, from where she is.
[01:16:41]: 2Lt. Aylanea glances to Jaron. "Neither do I. But it has to be thought about anyway. If it has happened, our best hope to snap her out might just /be/ Sarah…"
[01:17:27]: Cpt Ishida (Scythe 2-5) looksat Sarah with a mixture of confusion and thought.
[01:18:49]: Lt. Jaron nods "probably so"
[01:19:41]: Cpt Ishida (Scythe 2-5): Chief, some decorum please. We are in t emiddle of a battlefield. The enemy is a stones throw from our position. We don't have time for this. We have a war to fight. When we are relived, when we are off of combat status, I promise I will enterntain your concerns then, but not before.
[01:22:00]: Cpt Ishida (Scythe 2-5) puts a hand on Sarah shoulder.
[01:22:42]: Cpt Ishida (Scythe 2-5): Return to your unit, and do what is expected of you. Be strong, and be brave. When we are done here, we can talk.
[01:23:01]: Cpt Ishida (Scythe 2-5) whispers, you aren't sure if she is talking to you, or to herself.
[01:23:05]: CWO3 Sarah balls her hands just slightly and glows a tiny bit, then relaxes. "I thought you were told by a superior officer to sign out, get some food, and get some sleep, already. And we're alone. My unit left, probably so I'd have alone time with you, since they know how close we are."
[01:25:10]: CWO3 Sarah: "And they did not send any…" She checks her pad, and pauses, peering at the message from Aylanea quickly, and making a face. "… thing important. Since they were told to go get some chow as well, with the enemy having pulled back."
[01:27:06]: Cpt Ishida (Scythe 2-5): This operation is winding down chief. I estimate a day or two at best on the surface. Then the fleet will withdraw. I know you will do your duty.
[01:27:51]: Cpt Ishida (Scythe 2-5): We will talk then.
[01:29:27]: CWO3 Sarah tries to tap back a message without looking too much, suggesting to Lt. Madresa that she should probably not have watched The Manchrian Candidate or any other spy thriller like it at the wee hours of the morning, caffienated or no, while still looking up at Suki. "They see me like I am now, they'll relieve me from my duty until later on, actually." She shakes her head then. "If the fleet withdraws, we'll probably be moved somewhere we can't talk, as well."
[01:30:15]: CWO3 Sarah: "I'm surprised they're considering you duty fit, when you don't eat or sleep for 'hours', even after the Major told you to."
[01:30:24]: Cpt Ishida (Scythe 2-5): Then maintain your bearing Chief. Do. Your. Duty.
[01:30:50]: Lt. Jaron: (damn; hard ass central)
[01:30:51]: Cpt Ishida (Scythe 2-5): This will all be over soon.
[01:31:47]: Cpt Ishida (Scythe 2-5) takes great offense at the suggestion that she is unfit.
[01:31:57]: Cpt Ishida (Scythe 2-5) step forward and in a low hiss replies.
[01:32:02]: CWO3 Sarah shakes her head. "You've never shut me out this coldly. They already won. They just beat me, instead of you. Using you to do it. And they've won totally if you starve or collapse and die. You're underweight."
[01:32:32]: Cpt Ishida (Scythe 2-5): I am Fit. I did not ltet them win then. I will not let them win now!
[01:32:59]: Cpt Ishida (Scythe 2-5): This will all be over soon, then I will rest.
[01:34:24]: Cpt Ishida (Scythe 2-5): I'm underweight becuase they didn't feed me for two weeks! It's impossible to recover that in only four days Chief.
[01:34:47]: Cpt Ishida (Scythe 2-5) huffs and puffs, pacing.
[01:35:56]: CWO3 Sarah shakes her head slightly and sighs. "Nevermind. I'll have Lt. Fairman ask the Major about it. Since you already ignored him telling you to go eat and rest." She looks down at her pad. "Right now, I have to lecture a certain other immediate superior officer about the danger of watching spy movies at 4 am, while drinking cola."
[01:36:17]: Cpt Ishida (Scythe 2-5) nods.
[01:36:22]: Lt. Jaron: (lol)
[01:37:06]: Cpt Ishida (Scythe 2-5): I am going to see this through Chief, when it's over, you may have me back. But not until this is over.
[01:37:12]: CWO3 Sarah sighs. "It seems that I'm not the only one to find out things. And that Lt. Madresa has seen the Manchurian Candidate or something too damned many times."
[01:37:29]: Cpt Ishida (Scythe 2-5): I do not know of this movie.
[01:38:56]: CWO3 Sarah peers at Suki. "It's a movie where the communists programmed someone over the long term as a mole during a war. Then his war hero status was used to maneuver him through the political arenas and into leadership, while all the while being programmed on a trigger to act for the enemy."
[01:39:19]: CWO3 Sarah: "At least until someone who knew about it was able to stop it."
[01:39:37]: Cpt Ishida (Scythe 2-5) bristeles at that, looking very angry, and hurt. But calms herself.
[01:41:03]: CWO3 Sarah: "She didn't mention the movie directly. But reminded me of what the other people taken prisoner before wound up like. At Urt Balor, and made it sound too much like that." She shrugs.
[01:42:33]: Cpt Ishida (Scythe 2-5): If thats what you feel, then report me unfit. I won't hold it against you. I've already been cleared for return to duty by Division. I have a job to do, and by the kami I WILL do it.
[01:49:21]: CWO3 Sarah shakes her head.
[01:50:39]: Cpt Ishida (Scythe 2-5) looks at Sarah.
[01:51:02]: CWO3 Sarah: '
[01:51:02]: CWO3 Sarah: [01:51:03]: CWO3 Sarah: [01:51:07]: CWO3 Sarah: (dt)
[01:51:16]: CWO3 Sarah: (( damned thing parsing ))
[01:55:13]: CWO3 Sarah: "Again, that was her message, not mine." She lets her temper flare fully then, the glow surrounding her nicely, as she doesn't hold it in. "And I'm sorry, Captain Ishida. For thinking you'd speak to me. Or assuming you'd listen when you were 'cleared' by a Major to go eat and sleep. Thinking it'd be your chance to talk to someone who cares about you more than anyone in the universe. But no. My mistake. Enjoy your empty watch." She straightens, gives the full and proper military salute without any speck of tounge in cheek or anything else like she normally might, and turns, walking for the door.
[01:55:35]: Cpt Ishida (Scythe 2-5): Chief, you know me well enough to understand that I cannot lose face to a faceless enemy. I do not want to fight you anymore on this. You are not my enemy, they are. Please support me in this and let me finish what I started.
[01:56:33]: Cpt Ishida (Scythe 2-5): And I never said I woulnd't go and eat.
[01:58:20]: Cpt Ishida (Scythe 2-5): After, all, I would be negligant in my duty if I left this post unmanned. When the Seargent returns I will leave.
[01:58:41]: CWO3 Sarah turns back around. "Did you, uh, notice why he left?"
[01:59:10]: Cpt Ishida (Scythe 2-5): Likely becuase he like the Major took the hint ath you wished to speak with me in private.
[01:59:25]: Cpt Ishida (Scythe 2-5): Or am I mistaken in that assumption?
[02:01:06]: CWO3 Sarah shakes her head. "I don't recall anything being hinted to the Major like that. He left to tour the lines, before I reacted at all. I was trying to be careful not to react in front of him. But the Sgt. got the hint from Lt. Fairman and Lt. Madresa, after they saw my reaction to your bandaged and underweight condition."
[02:02:06]: CWO3 Sarah: "Because they figured I probably wanted to have a nervous breakdown worrying about my girlfriend, and what had happened to her."
[02:03:26]: Cpt Ishida (Scythe 2-5): Regardless, when the Seargent returns from his meal, I will attend to mine. You may remain here until that time if you wish. And, I am sorry, but there are no neavous breakdowns allowed in this OP. I believe that is a standing order from the Major.
[02:06:14]: CWO3 Sarah: "Why didn't you go right after the Major said you could go take it, and had dismissed the rest of us to do so, then? The Sgt hadn't left yet, then."
[02:07:04]: Cpt Ishida (Scythe 2-5): Because I'm an officer, I am the first one in to work, the last to leave and I dont take my breaks until my soldiers are taken care of.
[02:10:52]: Cpt Ishida (Scythe 2-5) 's stomach makes funny noises.
[02:11:21]: Cpt Ishida (Scythe 2-5) looks down at her tummy.
[02:11:25]: Cpt Ishida (Scythe 2-5): Hush you!
[02:11:37]: CWO3 Sarah gigglesnorts.
[02:12:52]: GM: The sgt returns later and true to her word Ishida absconds to the mess tent.
[02:13:22]: CWO3 Sarah shakes her head, then. "Seems I'm not the only one who disagrees with you." She glances at the stomach, then waits for the Sgt, glancing to him and nodding, and stepping out to follow along.
[02:13:39]: GM: Which is really a sliver of camo netting off the back of a duce and a half with a guy hucking MRE's off the lift gate…
[02:15:03]: GM: Ishida looks at her MRE and trades with someone for one with Corned beef and hash.
[02:15:26]: GM: ((best MRE…EVER!))
[02:15:48]: GM: ((anyway, I'm about to pass out…))
[02:16:01]: CWO3 Sarah follows the line, glow long since gone, of course, offering a tiny smile. "Just today I had to defend my relationship with you, after a relative from on ALuCE way back when showed up and poked at me over it, thinking I was nuts." She blinks at the MRE tradeoff, just getting whatever MRE she's given. She's not too fussy, after all.
[02:16:08]: CWO3 Sarah: (( d'aww ))
[02:17:01]: Cpt Ishida (Scythe 2-5): You mean Ahnhel?
[02:17:31]: CWO3 Sarah laughs a little. "Ah, shoulda figured you'd know about her being here. Said she was off working in medical?"
[02:18:03]: Cpt Ishida (Scythe 2-5): Who do you thik they flew out to check me over? They wouldn't risk any UEEF medic…
[02:18:52]: Cpt Ishida (Scythe 2-5): I dont think she was very pleased about it either.
[02:19:22]: Lt. Jaron (exit): 02:19
[02:20:51]: CWO3 Sarah blinks at that and rolls her eyes idly. "Nice…" She shakes iher head. "Really lovely." She laughs a little then. "I'm surprised they didn't have a Garudan shrink poke all the way through your head before letting you back on duty, to warn about possible problems. But I suppose those are in short supply as well." She sighs. "Which reminds me of another reason I moved close right away. One thing I'd wanted to do was help heal you up. You backed away before I could."
[02:21:57]: Cpt Ishida (Scythe 2-5): Physically I'm fine, boarder line malnutrition, and the leavings of a concussion.
[02:22:44]: CWO3 Sarah sighs softly. "You don't look physically fine, you look banged up and scraped up, I thought maybe I could help fix that better."
[02:22:45]: Cpt Ishida (Scythe 2-5): But if it'll make you feel better, you can do…whatever it is you do.
[02:23:06]: CWO3 Sarah: (( and AIM dies suddenly. ))
[02:23:07]: Cpt Ishida (Scythe 2-5): Cuts and scrapes? Chief, please.
[02:23:13]: CWO3 Sarah: (( phew. ))
[02:23:42]: CWO3 Sarah sighs. "That's just on the surface, though. I'm not privy to what all else wis wrong. If that's seen is bad, what's unseen is almost surely worse."
[02:24:33]: Cpt Ishida (Scythe 2-5): Chief, I said we will talk about that later, once I am off world and no longer on combat footing. Please respect my wishes.
[02:25:30]: CWO3 Sarah sighs. "I'm just afraid we'll be transferred apart when that happens. We didn't come here on the Yuki, realize…"
[02:26:43]: Cpt Ishida (Scythe 2-5): I know, you came in on the Hamilton.
[02:27:20]: Cpt Ishida (Scythe 2-5): The Yuki is in orbit next to the Reprisal.
[02:27:29]: Cpt Ishida (Scythe 2-5) points skyward with her fork.
[02:31:10]: CWO3 Sarah hmms and nods. "Okay then. I was just worried." She shrugs.
