Chapter 16 - Act I - Part 3


[07:22:39] GM: As the pirate transport lifts off, you all make your way indie the open hatch, blasting your way thru the resistance inside, it takes little time to secure the ships bridge along with [1d10-4] => [3,-4] = (-1) prisoners.
[07:23:02] GM: No prisoners. Harse Realm.
[07:23:23] Carrie: (( lol ))
[07:23:39] GM: Some ONE roll a radio basic roll please
[07:24:10] GM: I dont care who
[07:24:43] James: [1d100] => [30] = (30) v 80
[07:25:01] GM: That was Komi right?
[07:25:04] 2LT Komillia Maeless: ((oops))
[07:25:08] 2LT Komillia Maeless: ((yes))
[07:25:16] CWO3 Sarah: (( lol ))
[07:25:18] CWO3 Sarah: (( :) ))
[07:25:44] GM: Komi, manages to get on the horn and ward off a flight of Sahargress fighters before they blow the 'escaping frieghter' out of the sky.
[07:27:10] GM: The fighters then escort you back to where you lifted off from and you can see one of the smaller ships is one it's side and is burning like a pyre while the other one has about 3 or so pirates as prisoners behind watched over by your 'fellow mercs'
[07:27:50] GM: You alnd the ship and a cheer goes up as you exit the gang way.
[07:29:19] 2LT Komillia Maeless jokes, "No autographs, my angent would kill me for giving something away for free,"
[07:29:49] CWO3 Sarah laughs at Komi's comment.
[07:30:04] Febrith Nyx inspects the cargo. [1d20] => [6] = (6) Perc
[07:30:55] GM: Nyx, you have no real idea, since the crates are labled on Bondar Trade, and not Chellic, plus, the pirates dont package things like they do at home
[07:31:50] GM: Assessment teams arrive from the base and take stock off all the captured gear and personel.
[07:32:43] GM: Opening up the cargo however Nyx finds the usual suspects, contrband, slaves, weapons drugs, booze etc
[07:35:08] GM: ..
[07:35:09] GM: okay
[07:35:12] GM: moving on
[07:35:45] CWO3 Sarah: (( :p ))
[07:36:17] GM: Ishida helps herself to a few items, as do a few other (hey, I typed that out and strolled to the kitne and did some cooking and no reply by the time I got back so))
[07:36:32] Febrith Nyx: ((sorry, got one arm pinnedm and a dog licking my face))
[07:36:38] CWO3 Sarah: (( lols ))
[07:38:36] Febrith Nyx digs through the weapons.
[07:38:58] CWO3 Sarah peeks at weapons as well, curiously.
[07:39:01] 2LT Komillia Maeless makes sure the slaves are freed,
[07:39:08] Febrith Nyx: [1d20] => [4] = (4)
[07:39:19] CWO3 Sarah: [1d20+1] => [7,1] = (8) perc
[07:39:25] CWO3 Sarah: (( wow, night of the awful rolls ))
[07:39:54] GM: You find mainly small arms
[07:40:13] GM: a mix of Trow and Bondar types
[07:41:39] GM: you do note however that all the Trow weapons you find, and have used as well, are energy based, while the Bondar seems to be projectile based
[07:42:30] Febrith Nyx picks out a few good Trow pistols, and a Bondar Rifle.
[07:43:18] GM: many of the other mercs gather themselves up a souvinier as well
[07:44:14] CWO3 Sarah raises her eyebrows just a bit at that. "Hmm. Interesting… Technological disparity, possibly?" She considers. "Or unwillingness to spare the power to recharge them…" She nabs a Bondar carbine, quickly.
[07:44:21] GM: the rest is invantoried by the assessment teams and sealed up for transport
[07:45:52] GM: It would seem to be a cultural disparity rather then a technological one, both weapons have near identicle capabilities.
[07:46:09] CWO3 Sarah: (( ah. :) ))
[07:46:10] GM: just one goes bang, the other goes pew
[07:47:21] GM: You are then airlifted back to base in the two captured ships.
[07:47:31] GM: percs
[07:47:50] CWO3 Sarah: [1d20+1] => [14,1] = (15)
[07:48:36] GM: [1d20] => [15] = (15) for the Suki
[07:49:05] GM: Y odog boy!
[07:49:21] CWO3 Sarah: (( lol ))
[07:49:29] Febrith Nyx: [1d20] => [15] = (15)
[07:49:32] GM: your emperor demands a perc roll
[07:49:34] 2LT Komillia Maeless: [1d12] => [10] = (10)
[07:49:41] CWO3 Sarah: (( hehe ))
[07:49:45] GM: You guys note nothing out of the ordinary
[07:49:54] 2LT Komillia Maeless: ((I kill emperors for fun…))
[07:49:58] CWO3 Sarah: (( heh :p ))
[07:53:13] GM: The prize monies for the recovered items is divided and you all make a decent chunk of change,
[07:54:23] Febrith Nyx: "I keep making money like this, and I may be able to buy a car."
[07:54:40] Febrith Nyx: ((Early 1900s, think about it.))
[07:54:42] GM: You make each on the order of 367,000 Ada
[07:55:37] GM: As do the rest of the folks in the unit that attacked the ships.
[07:56:10] GM: needles to say, a lot of fellow members of the assult team are very happy with you for recoverng the big ship
[07:56:42] GM: percs, Nyx, you get a +2
[07:56:49] GM: [1d20] => [12] = (12) Suki
[07:56:51] Febrith Nyx: [1d20+2] => [4,2] = (6)
[07:56:52] CWO3 Sarah: [1d20+1] => [12,1] = (13)
[07:56:57] 2LT Komillia Maeless: [1d20] => [15] = (15)
[07:57:01] GM: nope
[07:57:05] GM: need to get better then a 17
[07:57:24] 2LT Komillia Maeless continues to pack up her ruck.
[07:59:06] CWO3 Sarah checks her things quietly, smiling just a little as she settles back in.
[07:59:12] GM: ((funny, if Sarah took Empathy, she could be like Nimitz, … Bleek!))
[07:59:43] CWO3 Sarah: (( lol ))
[07:59:57] Febrith Nyx watches the camp to study the baseline differences between her people and these more advanced Trow. [1d20] => [16] = (16) Perc [1d100] => [39] = (39) vs 78 Anthropology, [1d100] => [2] = (2) vs 63 Psychology
[08:00:31] GM: Define 'her people'.
[08:00:58] Febrith Nyx: ((The group she's with now.))
[08:01:14] Febrith Nyx: ((Noble squad))
[08:01:56] Febrith Nyx: ((Figures the basics of the advanced Trow should serve as a decent baseline, and this may be as close as she gets to comparing apples to apples.))
[08:03:05] CWO3 Sarah: (( well, for sure, compared to the advanced trow, Suki and Sarah probably look like runts :p ))
[08:03:34] GM: The ones in the group that seem to be MOST like the advanced Trow are Komi and Suki, (as for the rest of Noble squad…Jeron is male, and sterotypically so (in the way Trow regard males) Kain, is more feminine. Sarah is a bit masculine in her mannerisms, and Ay, well, she acts manly, but has a decent womanly strek trying to get out.
[08:04:03] GM: The above is based on psychology,
[08:05:55] Febrith Nyx: ((heh))
[08:06:11] 2LT Komillia Maeless goes looking for that missing item. [1d20+] => 1d20+
[08:06:15] 2LT Komillia Maeless: [1d20] => [1] = (1)
[08:06:22] GM: In terms of species dimorphism, yes, Suki and Sarah are positivly runtlike, and Komi and Ay are about the right size although Komi is a bit on the small side. Kain and Jeron are small, even for men.
[08:06:23] 2LT Komillia Maeless: ((SQUIRREL!))
[08:06:39] GM: ((face it, it's lost and you are never getting back your Gundam Anthology
[08:06:51] CWO3 Sarah: (( rofl ))
[08:07:14] GM: Balaa is right on in terms of size, only slightly larger then the average Trwo female
[08:07:25] 2LT Komillia Maeless: ((Squirrels in her pants.))
[08:08:25] CWO3 Sarah: (( rofl ))
[08:09:16] GM: ((how do i get govt grants…)) we just got served
[08:10:32] GM: Nyx, your perc, you notice something unspoken about the regard you are all being held in, they folks in the unit are genuninly happy about the op, but thats not the whole sotry
[08:10:40] 2LT Komillia Maeless: ((Phineas and Ferb, them and the Avengers are the only good shows on Disney…))
[08:10:42] GM: story
[08:11:24] GM: (9disney can kiss my ass these days, bunch of power hungry PC mealy mouth bastards more worried about the Mouse then anything else, a pox on their house))
[08:12:34] CWO3 Sarah: (( only thing good out of Disney in a while now wsa Enchanted, and that's only cause it was a mockery of a lot of their other crap. ))
[08:13:19] GM: And nyx, teh only reason you pick that up is because, dispite being from a backwater, and generally considered a neobarb, you are trow, and somethings in terms of mannerisms and physical and voice inflection is universal
[08:13:41] 2LT Komillia Maeless: ((The latest string of Marvel Super Hero movies are technically disney…))
[08:13:44] CWO3 Sarah: (( lol. a neobarb ))
[08:14:00] GM: ((kk, callin you out Sarah, define it.))
[08:14:24] GM: without google
[08:14:46] CWO3 Sarah: (( eh? lol. I was just finding the term amusing :p ))
[08:15:40] GM: Neo-Barbarian
[08:15:44] GM: okay
[08:15:48] Febrith Nyx: "Something is off in the way these Trow are behaving. I seriously suggest sleeping with one eye open, or in shifts.
[08:15:53] CWO3 Sarah: (( yes, that much is obvious. Didn't think you meant that simple ))
[08:16:01] CWO3 Sarah: (( I was looking for some deeper meaning past that :p ))
[08:16:03] CWO3 Sarah: (( rofl ))
[08:16:18] Cpt Ishida (Delta Actual): What do you mean?
[08:16:59] CWO3 Sarah frowns a little bit at that, blinking.
[08:19:29] CWO3 Sarah: "lovely…"
[08:19:50] Febrith Nyx: "There mannerisms, their happy about the op, but something about this feels like they don't trust us. Or more likely see us as a threat."
[08:20:07] Cpt Ishida (Delta Actual): Hmm,
[08:20:10] Cpt Ishida (Delta Actual): Nyx.
[08:20:35] CWO3 Sarah hmms. "Think that's partly cause we actually get shit accomplished, while they just want to sit here?"
[08:21:20] Febrith Nyx: "What?"
[08:21:39] Cpt Ishida (Delta Actual): Private, I'd like you to look into this. Your unique skillset makes you well suited to this task.
[08:25:16] Febrith Nyx nods, "Very well. It shall not be cheap though. I expect full course in piloting your mecha."
[08:25:37] Cpt Ishida (Delta Actual) smiles and nods.
[08:25:41] Cpt Ishida (Delta Actual): That will be all Private.
[08:27:37] Febrith Nyx sets about to look into the matter, and determine exactly what is going to happen. [1d20] => [3] = (3) PERC, [1d100] => [2] = (2) vs 78 Anthropology, [1d100] => [12] = (12) vs 78 Military Etiquette, [1d100] => [86] = (86) vs 63 Psychology, [1d100] => [76] = (76) vs 63 Psychological Warfare, [1d100] => [12] = (12) vs 59 Intelligence, [1d100] => [4] = (4) vs 63 Interrogation, [1d100] => [7] = (7) vs 43 Seduction, [1d100] => [83] = (83) vs 92 Charm/Impress
[08:28:01] Febrith Nyx: ((nice mix of rolls.))
[08:28:13] GM: Interesting mix of rolls
[08:29:43] CWO3 Sarah: (( lols. she got some with someone potentially important, and took advantage of it to smooth some answers out? ))
[08:29:55] CWO3 Sarah: (( s'how I'd interpret all but the anthro roll ;) ))
[08:30:21] CWO3 Sarah: (( unless that let her figure out how to get into their bed ;p ))
[08:30:25] CWO3 Sarah: (( j/k ))
[08:31:11] Febrith Nyx: ((any good infiltrator knows the best way to get and verify info means multiple sources\))
[08:31:19] CWO3 Sarah: (( point ))
[08:31:30] Febrith Nyx: ((and using the same approach on everyone is just dumb.))
[08:33:38] CWO3 Sarah: (( hehe ))
[08:34:10] GM: Nyx, you work your chamrs and gain the confidance of a few other members of the unit, over the course of a week as you bed a few of them and loosen their lips. During some sweat drenched trysts you in the afterglow of pillow talk are able to learn that. "Yeah, it was amazing, the Lieutenant, she wasn't going to let us in, figure those embiri would get themselves killed, you to I suppose, but once we saw your advance, and how you had them on the run, well, a few of the Seargents convinced the Lt that we had to move in. And that little on up on that far ship was like the reincarnation of Sharess herself, like a demon."
[08:36:14] GM: With that and a few more pointed questions (4 on Interrogation) you learn that the Lt was paid to let you fail, but that the others were shamed by your skill and bravery and were able to use the argument that hey, we dont go in now, they will get all the prize money of that haul.
[08:36:41] CWO3 Sarah: (( lol :p ))
[08:37:29] GM: Hence the cheers upon your retun, it was a mix of yes we get phat lewtz, and hell yeah you guys kicked major ass
[08:38:23] GM: for all the other factors involved, the Shargress Mercs do admire martial prowess
[08:38:36] Febrith Nyx reports back to the squad with the info, "It seems we have an enemy and the rest of the camp is now in the awkward position of hero worship vs Trow politics."
[08:38:52] Cpt Ishida (Delta Actual): I see.
[08:40:27] 2LT Komillia Maeless: "So how do we want to take down the Lt. for a few pegs?"
[08:40:28] Cpt Ishida (Delta Actual): [1d100] => [2] = (2) vs Intell 80%
[08:40:45] Cpt Ishida (Delta Actual): And I think I have a few ideas who proposed the payoff.
[08:41:15] CWO3 Sarah snickers at Komillia, then glances to Suki.
[08:43:21] Febrith Nyx: "Anyone up for some humiliation?"
[08:43:51] Cpt Ishida (Delta Actual): You are more versed on your kind thatn I am, but do you think humiliation would be wise?
[08:44:17] Cpt Ishida (Delta Actual): besides, I would think it would only make things worse, by which I mean personal.
[08:44:52] Febrith Nyx: Depends on how utterly disgraced we leave her. Sure, we'd still have an enemy, but one with less reach, but less rules. Kinda a mixed bag.
[08:45:40] Cpt Ishida (Delta Actual): Right, but if I'm correct about who I think paid her off, then it was likly not something she did out of hatred or anger but mearly out of pure profit.
[08:46:34] CWO3 Sarah nods a little at that. "And if that's the case, humiliating the Lt. just makes a new full-on enemy."
[08:47:52] Febrith Nyx: I suppose you are correct, and who do you think our real enemy is then?
[08:47:56] Cpt Ishida (Delta Actual): Remember, we faced an assassian on Mareel IV, and had a Bondar merc ship show up right afterwards, and then there was the frackus of that legal action we had to give depositions on. I think whichever faction out here that got caught 'exploting the locals' is rightly angry and a merc is a merc is a merc, put two and two toghter and they figure out where we went off to, and pay the LT to allow us to take a fall, , after all, she asked and we did accept rather graciously to lead that assault.
[08:50:22] Cpt Ishida (Delta Actual): I think there is a 50/50 chance that will be the end of it from the LT's perspective. She got paid for the attempt and it failed. Not her fault. Of course I have no idea how deep the pockets are or how much pressure they can bring to bear. But, with that legal action, whatever it is, if i were them, I'd be very discreet.
[08:51:17] Febrith Nyx: "Interesting. Highly likely too."
[08:51:52] Cpt Ishida (Delta Actual): Plus if I read these prize rules correctly, she probobly made far more money off the op we pulled off then she was offered to allow us to off ourselves.
[08:52:00] Febrith Nyx: "So we keep making money and wait for the enemy society to show it's soft under-belly."
[08:52:29] CWO3 Sarah snickers. "Was just about to ask that, yeah. More profitable to support when we're winning."
[08:52:44] Cpt Ishida (Delta Actual): I think so yes, we keep on beng cash-cows for these mercs…and they will look after us. No use killing the golden goose.
[08:53:06] CWO3 Sarah grins just a little at that.
[08:53:47] Cpt Ishida (Delta Actual): Of course that leads into another animalistc analogy, we quite literally have the tiger by the tail, when it comes time to let go…
[08:53:54] Cpt Ishida (Delta Actual) leaves the rest of that unsaid.
[08:55:28] Febrith Nyx: "We make sure we're sitting on the biggest bomb. Make sure they don't mess with us by virtue of mutually assured destruction."
[08:55:38] Trow pokes her head into the area you are chatting in.
[08:55:51] Febrith Nyx: "May I help you?"
[08:56:04] Trow: Hey you! New orders came in, Commander wants to see you.
[08:56:19] Trow smiles genuinly
[08:56:31] Febrith Nyx: "Looks to the rest. Sounds look more money."
[08:56:38] Trow: Oh yeah!
[08:56:42] Febrith Nyx Looks to the rest. "Sounds look more money."
[08:57:12] CWO3 Sarah smiles a little at that. "Well, that's always a plus, of course."
[08:58:06] GM: The Trow, who is a memebr of one of the squads that went into battle with you, well, after you, leads you up to the commanders office and you see the LT, the Sgt from the firebase and the Commander and her staff.
[08:59:47] CWO3 Sarah takes note of all those assembled, and blinks just slightly, making sure she's at her most military proper on the approach.
[09:01:06] Trow Commander: Come in.
[09:01:26] Trow Commander motiones you over to where she wishies you to stand.
[09:01:32] Febrith Nyx comes in and finds a respectful, but comfortable place to stand.
[09:02:07] CWO3 Sarah moves to where the group was motioned to stand, staying at her position within the unit in order to do so.
[09:02:26] CWO3 Sarah: (( read: letting suki and anyone else go ahead of her ))
[09:02:38] Trow Commander: Very fine work on your last action, the Lieutenant and the Sargent here have had only fine words for your conduct and skill.
[09:03:19] GM: Note that the Sgt is from the firebase, and the LT is from the main base (she is not the same LT from the firebase)
[09:03:34] GM: Just want to make that clear
[09:03:39] CWO3 Sarah: (( k ))
[09:04:33] Trow Commander: Looks like you are moving up in the Union, and while I am proud of you, I will also admit that I am slightly miffed.
[09:04:44] Sgt. Malika snickers knowingly.
[09:05:05] Febrith Nyx: ((kk))
[09:05:10] Cpt Ishida (Delta Actual) looks at the Sgt with a question marks in her eyes.
[09:05:29] 2LT Komillia Maeless smiles like she knows where this is going.
[09:05:36] Sgt. Malika: What the commander means is, that she doenst like to see her prize winners being poached from her.
[09:05:48] Trow Commander: Dam right I dont.
[09:05:59] Trow Commander: That being said…
[09:06:06] Trow Commander snorts with a wan smile.
[09:06:15] Trow Commander: Allow me to introduce you to your new CO.
[09:06:20] Trow Commander: Major.
[09:06:40] Major An'jhali steps forward, having been hanging back in the shadows regarding you.
[09:07:54] Major An'jhali is a towering female with the tradmark white hair but with a pair of red streaks by each temple. She wears a skin suit light padded armor with a stylized wolf head logo on her shoulder.
[09:08:06] Febrith Nyx quirks her eye brows.
[09:09:28] Major An'jhali: I'm Major An'jhali. I command 4th Claw , Wolf Fangs.
[09:10:18] CWO3 Sarah moves her eyes slightly to glance far upward at the Major, as she steps out, though she doesn't react otherwise.
[09:10:53] Major An'jhali: I've seen the holo's of your stunts over those ships, and that in concert with what the Sgt has told us, you have jsut the right mix of talant and crazy we are looking for.
[09:11:04] 2LT Komillia Maeless tries not to stare at the Wolf Patch and keeps her mind off a certain miniatures game…
[09:11:24] CWO3 Sarah: (( lols. ))
[09:11:50] Major An'jhali: So, are you in?
[09:12:40] Sgt. Malika nods at you as if to say, yes, you want to 'be in'.
[09:13:03] GM: you can roll a mil etiquette at -30% if you wish
[09:13:07] GM: for more info
[09:13:34] 2LT Komillia Maeless: [1d100+30] => [42,30] = (72) vs 80
[09:13:41] CWO3 Sarah: [1d100+30] => [39,30] = (69) vs. 79%
[09:13:42] Cpt Ishida (Delta Actual): [1d100+30] => [31,30] = (61) vs 98
[09:13:53] Febrith Nyx: [1d100+30] => [78,30] = (108) vs 78
[09:13:58] CWO3 Sarah: (( lol ))
[09:14:01] Febrith Nyx: ((ffff))
[09:14:04] CWO3 Sarah: (( :) ))
[09:14:23] CWO3 Sarah: (( *scritches Nyx behind the ears* ))
[09:14:49] GM: Sarah Komi and Suki, you recall from your primer courses at the beginning of your merc stint, that the Wolf Fangs are the SMU's primier Golem Aces
[09:15:18] GM: I.e Power Armor unit with roots in teresstrial cavelry
[09:15:26] GM: terrestrial
[09:17:04] CWO3 Sarah: (( neat ))
[09:17:32] CWO3 Sarah glances Sukiwards.
[09:17:40] 2LT Komillia Maeless: A chance to play with mecha I've never seen before? I'm in.
[09:18:00] GM: Suki nods, as she to 'is in'
[09:18:11] CWO3 Sarah nods quickly as well.
[09:18:31] Febrith Nyx: "If it means I get to something to interrogate, analyze and dissect in addition to money, I'd be ecstatic. Otherwise, I'll just be happy with the money."
[09:20:01] Major An'jhali: Riiiight
[09:20:22] Sgt. Malika: You did say crazy sera.
[09:20:29] Major An'jhali: I did at that.
[09:20:47] GM: ((sera = sir))
[09:21:40] Major An'jhali points to Suki.
[09:22:46] Major An'jhali: You will be Platoon Leader for 4th Platoon 4th Claw as Lieutenant, of your fellows, select your Platoon Sgt and your squad leaders.
[09:23:08] Cpt Ishida (Delta Actual): Sera!
[09:23:17] Cpt Ishida (Delta Actual) salutes in Trow fashion
[09:23:40] Cpt Ishida (Delta Actual) doesnt even look back and with no hesitation…
[09:23:43] Cpt Ishida (Delta Actual): Mealess.
[09:23:48] Cpt Ishida (Delta Actual): Platoon Sgt.
[09:24:01] Cpt Ishida (Delta Actual): Nyx, Ahmdhal, Squad leaders.
[09:24:22] Febrith Nyx looks evil, "Sounds fun."
[09:24:24] Major An'jhali: Then it's settled.
[09:24:31] 2LT Komillia Maeless: "Understood."
[09:25:44] Major An'jhali hands the correct rank insignia to you all, Suki O-1, Komi E-7, Nyx and Sarah E-6 (E-7 = 1st Sgt or in Trow, 2nd Sword) (E-6 = SSgt or in Trow, Sword)
[09:26:45] Major An'jhali: Gather up your kit and be on pad 3 in 30 minutes. Dis-missed.
[09:27:05] 2LT Komillia Maeless: "Yes sera."
[09:27:30] 2LT Komillia Maeless mutters under her breath this could get confusing with someone named Sarah in this group.
[09:27:51] CWO3 Sarah nods. "Yes, sera." Then almost snickers at Komi.
[09:28:50] GM: You gather up your gear and ship out and are taken to Chell where the SMU has their more advanced traning facilities.
[09:29:53] 2LT Komillia Maeless: "So what kinda gear are we looking at here?"
[09:30:15] GM: You land and get to do the whole 'where am I going again' routine again, but with the added benefit of a few privates showing you where to go and no DI's barking at you.
[09:32:45] GM: After you are settled in to real proper rooms and not just decade old worn our cots, you are taken to a practice hanger to be introduced to your new rides.
[09:34:09] Major An'jhali lets you absorb it all, free RP
[09:34:13] 2LT Komillia Maeless looks over the new rides, positively giddy with anticipation.
[09:34:55] Febrith Nyx: "So these are powered by those crystals? Must be some power out put on them. How does it compare to a gas-powered car?"
[09:35:28] Major An'jhali snorts
[09:35:54] Major An'jhali: On the order of about 2000
[09:36:35] CWO3 Sarah glances over the mechas with some air of speculation, considering them.
[09:37:31] Major An'jhali runs down the capabilities as you look over the golem. They call this the Isable, based on the tech specs, it's comperable with a UEEF Devo, Except this has slightly better armor as it doenst transform.
[09:37:44] Febrith Nyx: "What? It's my best frame of reference."
[09:37:59] CWO3 Sarah glances to Suki, speaking quietly. "Gonna feel positively weird flying a mecha where I can't sense the power source, or fluctiations in it, right behind or under me." Then hushes when the Major does the rundown.
[09:38:12] 2LT Komillia Maeless: "Neat, sounds like it's Protocultrue, just less alive."
[09:38:29] Cpt Ishida (Delta Actual): It is not so wierd, why, I do it all the time.
[09:38:50] CWO3 Sarah: "Yeah, I meant for me."
[09:39:00] CWO3 Sarah laughs just a tiny bit.
[09:39:40] Major An'jhali: Allright, lets get you fitted for your pilots suit.
[09:42:41] 2LT Komillia Maeless: "This is going to involve some wierd material that shrinks to form fitting at the touch of a button, isn't it?"
[09:42:56] CWO3 Sarah laughs a little at that.
[09:42:59] GM: Suki Komi and Sarah, skin tight and utterly formfitting suits are nothing new to you, but these are more form fitting them even the UEEF's CVR undersuit. (but not by much) Nyx, I'll leave it up to you, but it's downright scandelous compared to the comapitivly puritanical dress you are used to back home
[09:43:33] CWO3 Sarah: (( lols. ))
[09:43:53] Febrith Nyx: "Where I come from, this is call lingerie…"
[09:44:16] GM: The suits you get are in the SMU's colors, red and black, and each has the Wolf Logo on the left shoulder and a triple hash mark with a Trow number 4 on the right
[09:44:31] Cpt Ishida (Delta Actual): Where I come from, this is called a Friday night.
[09:45:16] GM: OMG did Suki just make a scandelous joke…
[09:46:06] CWO3 Sarah: "Where I originally come from, standard clothes had less fabric. Least for the short while they were used, before I left." She snickers at Suki
[09:46:58] 2LT Komillia Maeless: "You know, this actually about as form fitting as standard UEEF pilot wear, so I don't see where you're coming from."
[09:47:59] CWO3 Sarah: "But then, they weren't used to the idea of clothes at that point…" She pauses at Komi's comment, shrugging slightly and smiling.
[09:48:00] Cpt Ishida (Delta Actual) looks at Komi and gives her a little shake of the head, followd with a the universal hand gesture near the neck of 'shush'
[09:50:03] GM: So, with you in your battle lingerie are then taken to your new toys and shown how to board them etc.
[09:51:33] GM: The larger arms mimic the movement of the subarms, but with a command you can disable the link and use the arms seperaly, with the larger arms leaft to do what they were told to (holding things etc) while you use the smaller arms for more refined tasks.
[09:52:03] GM: Due to the legs set up, skimming is the prefferred method of mving long distnaces or at higher speeds.
[09:52:31] GM: There are also harpoints at the outside of the knees and the shoulders for weapon mounts
[09:53:05] GM: As for specs, MB 375, legs 215, Arms 115, Sub Arms 80, Thursters 180, Head 160
[09:53:26] GM: The skinsuit offers 35
[09:55:24] GM: questions?
[09:56:09] CWO3 Sarah: (( what's the standard weapon load out and damages for it? I'm assuming that rifle is part ))
[09:56:52] CWO3 Sarah: (( or is that info being saved for later? :) ))
[09:56:53] 2LT Komillia Maeless: ((What are the base bonuses?))
[09:57:28] CWO3 Sarah: (( will you have it statted out weapons and all on the wiki sometime soon? ;) ))
[09:57:32] GM: use the devo weapons and bonuses for now
[09:57:40] CWO3 Sarah: (( k ))
[10:00:39] GM: figure 4d6x10 for standard damage
[10:02:12] GM: Nyx, it's an intuitive enough design so that you aren't totally lost, but, the other three, … like fish to water, and you find your self a tad bit jealous and maybe even awestruck, your call, at the ease and prowess they display in operating the Isabel
[10:02:57] GM: This fact is also noted by the trainers and they figure they have three Golem Savants in their midst
[10:03:44] GM: During this time Suki also makes it clear she's appreciate it if we kept our affiliantion with the UEEF on teh D-Lo
[10:04:10] GM: Less they kow, the better, being the thought behind that
[10:07:28] 2LT Komillia Maeless questions the worth of that. After all, they are a very long way from home, and if they leave a positive impression, and let people have some idea where they are from, it might grant them some allies.
[10:08:01] 2LT Komillia Maeless also reminds if there is a "sudden reveal" they are likely to be accused of being spies and subsequently getting offed.
[10:08:09] Cpt Ishida (Delta Actual): I agree, and the time will come for them to know, but right now, it avoids unecessary questions.
[10:08:33] CWO3 Sarah nods just a little bit to both arguements, shrugging and staying quiet on the issue.
[10:08:37] 2LT Komillia Maeless: "So we're doing this more for your comfort level than anything rational?"
[10:08:41] Cpt Ishida (Delta Actual): Besides, all of that information was presented to the reqruiters anyway.
[10:09:00] Cpt Ishida (Delta Actual) purses her lips.
[10:09:03] 2LT Komillia Maeless: "Then why hide it if they already know?"
[10:09:04] Cpt Ishida (Delta Actual): Probobly.
[10:09:20] Cpt Ishida (Delta Actual): Not suggesting we hide it, just not to advertise it.
[10:09:21] CWO3 Sarah hmms and nods. "That's true. If they wanted to know, they could just look at the files." she shrugs.
[10:10:22] Cpt Ishida (Delta Actual): I dont plan to with-hold any non classified information if asked, but, I wont offer it unsolicited either.
[10:10:40] Cpt Ishida (Delta Actual): I guess thats where I'm coming from on that.
[10:12:16] CWO3 Sarah nods a little
[10:16:35] 2LT Komillia Maeless: Honestly, it seems like we'd actually save time and make more money, if we let them know about the fact that we are relatively elite pilots. Possibly work with them to come up with new tactics both will benefit from. Hell, I'm surprised we AREN'T getting more questions about our skills. These people don't strike me as dumb, and they have to figure that we aren't only already well-trained but fought in a war. It'd make more sense for them to start asking uncomfortable questions because we aren't being forth coming. Lord knows I'd stick one of us in an interrogation room for trying to figure out why we're so good, and simply being savants aren't going to cut it for long. However, if we let them know non-classified info and be freely speaking about it, sure we don't come across as humble samurai warriors, but we don't come off as potential "spies in plain sight."
[10:18:56] Cpt Ishida (Delta Actual) scratches her chin in thought.
[10:19:16] CWO3 Sarah flinches slightly. "hadn't thought of that.
[10:21:25] Cpt Ishida (Delta Actual): Well, I suppose we can agree to disagree about the second point. As to the first. It's obvious they know we have skill, but having fought , rather, fighting a war, I would doubt that. Again, if they ask, I have to problem answerng, provided we dont divulge classified information.
[10:22:14] Cpt Ishida (Delta Actual): Besides, this is a mercenary company, not their military, it's likely they dont really care about the details so long as we turn a profit for them.
[10:22:57] 2LT Komillia Maeless: "Well, I said my peace at any rate."
[10:23:10] Cpt Ishida (Delta Actual): And I appreciate your candor.
[10:26:20] Cpt Ishida (Delta Actual): As for more powerful units they could plop us in, I agree that we would be better able to produce in them, but not very many merc units that operate within an established society would be allowed to operate mil spec gear.
[10:26:47] CWO3 Sarah nods a little. "We're starting to be a proven quantity, hopefully, but don't most merc companies value experienced soldiers more than whatever crap they can sign up off a space station anyway?"
[10:27:07] Cpt Ishida (Delta Actual): Would be like allowing Black Water to use Abrhams.
[10:27:27] 2LT Komillia Maeless: Touche.
[10:27:58] Cpt Ishida (Delta Actual) nods at Komi and offers a supportive smile.
[10:28:15] Cpt Ishida (Delta Actual): I will admit, we have been pretty spoiled by the UEEF.
[10:29:14] CWO3 Sarah nodnods at that. "Yeah, I'd really gotten used to the cushy lifestyle there." She smiles a bit.
[10:31:12] GM: A few days go by and you have mastered you new toys.
[10:31:58] GM: You have also been introduced to the other Wolves and have been accepted into the 'pack'
[10:33:17] 2LT Komillia Maeless looks around for what passes for entertainment, or their closest counterpart to anime is.
[10:33:44] GM: Entertainment for these folks consists of brawling, sparring, drinkiing, sex, and more of the above
[10:33:58] CWO3 Sarah: (( lol :p ))
[10:34:22] GM: Remember carrie, sex to these folks is more a form of recreation then anything deep seeded with love and effection
[10:34:50] GM: Sarah goes skiing or bicycling, Trow fuck
[10:35:07] CWO3 Sarah: (( lol. ))
[10:35:35] GM: There are the arts Komi
[10:36:24] GM: And I would assume they have their own version of Anime
[10:36:42] GM: what form that would take, is beyond me at this point but…
[10:36:45] CWO3 Sarah: (( hehe. ))
[10:36:55] GM: I'm pretty sure it exsists
[10:37:08] 2LT Komillia Maeless: ((probably mostly like La Blue girl…))
[10:37:15] GM: Probobly
[10:37:17] CWO3 Sarah: (( hehehe ))
[10:38:00] GM: that and my 'Girlfriend is a Goremu Pirot'
[10:39:10] GM: There is an alert and you guys are all told to gather kit and prep for a deployment, yall have a job to do.
[10:39:38] 2LT Komillia Maeless grabs her stuff and goes.
[10:39:57] Febrith Nyx is much more relaxed about the situation.
[10:39:59] CWO3 Sarah blinks at that and does so quickly.
[10:41:03] GM: You are loaded up onto a Navy transport and are briefed enroute. You are headed into Bondar Territory, and your target is a Enclave facility in support of the Regulars. As mercs, you will go in first and clear out a series of bases to clear the way for the follow on forces.
[10:43:41] GM: 4th Claw has been assigned to reduce a mid sized base nestled high up in a mountain overlooking a valley, and it's imperitive it is taken out, and more or less intact as the Regulars would like to move in,
[10:45:32] GM: Thats all the info for now, but the Claw is on retainer to remain on station should the Regualrs require any follow up missions, beyond that, once the base has been reduced, the Claw can conduct ops at their own discretion against the Bondar in the area.
[10:46:42] GM: I.e here is the job we are paying you for, do it, and then go pillage to your hearts content. Just be back in time to catch your ride out.
[10:47:41] Febrith Nyx: ((loves this job.))
[10:47:57] GM: All right I'll call it here, and we can kick ass and take names next week
[10:48:10] CWO3 Sarah: hehehe
[10:48:11] CWO3 Sarah: k
[10:48:27] GM: Even Suki has to admit, it is kinda … fun
[10:48:37] GM: but then again, she isn't normal
[10:48:42] GM: in the head
[10:49:56] Febrith Nyx: ((who in this group is?))
[10:49:56] GM: plan on a assault drop at night or something
[10:50:03] GM: this is true
[10:50:09] Febrith Nyx: ((I'll make a plan…))
[10:50:16] Febrith Nyx: ((how many in a team?))
[10:50:21] GM: thats wright, Platoon Sgt,
[10:50:31] GM: 4 per squad
[10:51:00] CWO3 Sarah: hehe
[10:51:02] CWO3 Sarah: :)
[10:51:14] GM: and each of you control a squad, tactily, but Komi you manage the whole thing while Suki gets her leadership on
[10:51:56] Febrith Nyx: ((can I have some time to thing about it?))
[10:52:01] GM: Suki says , I need this done, and Komi is all, Yes sera! Okay you twats! You hears the lady…insert orders here…now MOOVE!
[10:52:23] GM: sure
[10:53:07] GM: all told the platoon has 22 units
[10:53:21] GM: 4 troops per squad, 4 sgts 1 ptn sgt, and 1 lt
[10:55:25] GM: Like dat
[10:56:33] Febrith Nyx: ((nod))
[10:57:02] CWO3 Sarah: kk
[10:57:03] CWO3 Sarah: hehe
[10:57:27] GM: as a game mechanic, nice way for me to test and try out small unit command in an RP setting
[10:57:39] GM: so, welcome to the test lab
[10:58:45] GM: this will need to be a collaborative event as well,
[10:59:00] GM: consider this a play test for the future
[10:59:14] GM: to hash out how to deal with this sort of thing easily and swiftly
