Chapter 16 - Act II - Part 4


[07:03:28] GM: Okay, last we left off you gals were heading off to drop in on a Bondar base
[07:04:37] GM: let me know what weapons loads you preffer for your Isabel's
[07:05:34] GM: ((by preffer, i dont mean so much as this particualr weapons system, but what are you looking for and I'll doa snap call to see if it's available))
[07:08:12] CWO3 Sarah: (( wer're using Devo equipment, yes? hm. GU-21 equiv, and HLC-40/LMMDS if avail. ))
[07:08:16] Febrith Nyx will want a balance payload. A rifle with lots if not effective unlimited ammo, a big gun to hit things with should that prove necessary, a handfull of missiles for indirect fire. Not necessarily exactly that but that line of thinking.
[07:08:59] 2LT Komillia Maeless wants a sniper rifle, a vibroblade for close in, and a couple "back up" guns.
[07:10:48] GM: okay, sarah no worries on the GL-12 clone
[07:11:02] GM: err I mean GU-21
[07:11:42] GM: the Isabel has no shoulder mounts
[07:11:53] CWO3 Sarah: (( oh, okay. lol ))
[07:11:55] CWO3 Sarah: (( hehe ))
[07:12:02] CWO3 Sarah: (( :) ))
[07:12:14] GM: but you can carry an other hand held on a side mount (side of the thruster fairing, but not over it)
[07:12:43] CWO3 Sarah: (( in that case, the 18 equiv as a backup ))
[07:13:51] GM: where I circles carrie
[07:14:15] CWO3 Sarah: k
[07:14:15] CWO3 Sarah: :)
[07:14:19] GM: there are alos two mounts on the legs where you can plop smoke lances or more clips or some such
[07:15:37] CWO3 Sarah: woo
[07:15:41] CWO3 Sarah: (( yay clips ))
[07:16:09] GM: missiles (for lack of a better term, being more an energy based deal for the Trow) would be avail in a hend held manner, like a stinger, or a LAW, or bazooka
[07:16:45] CWO3 Sarah: (( energy based? That mean more shots and less reloadage? ;) ))
[07:16:52] GM: the rifles would not be unlimited in capacity, sadly
[07:17:01] CWO3 Sarah: (( hehehehe. ah. ))
[07:17:09] GM: so use the normal values for devo weapons and plan your clip load accordingly
[07:17:10] 2LT Komillia Maeless: ((heh))
[07:17:24] GM: Sniper rifle, no problem
[07:17:37] GM: same for a blade
[07:19:00] GM: Ishida will heft a 'assault rifle' and a supersized version of a the weapon she used on the ships
[07:19:31] GM: which will be powered by a pack affixed to one of the thruster mounts
[07:20:11] GM: your rifle Nyx can be so powered as well, if you so desire,
[07:20:34] GM: but there are limits and vulnerabilities to that, that I'm sure I dont need to go into
[07:21:01] CWO3 Sarah: (( heh ))
[07:21:10] CWO3 Sarah: (( *snipes for the pack* *boom* ))
[07:21:10] 2LT Komillia Maeless: ((no thanks.))
[07:21:34] GM: and Ishida being Ishida, I'll make a random roll to see if she can get some sword love if I get under a 20% then happy fun time [1d100] => [7] = (7)
[07:21:36] GM: woot
[07:21:40] GM: lucky 7
[07:23:23] GM: okay
[07:23:37] GM: I'm not going to go into hyper detial on the location,
[07:23:43] GM: but, here are the particulars.
[07:24:39] GM: it is on the side of a mountian, nesteled into a clearing shelf , the area is sparsly forested and the area where the base is IS accessible via roadway so the terrain isn't only mountian goat freindly
[07:25:42] GM: there mountian continues on up behind the facility and you guys are maybe 500 or so feet below the snow line so, and no, not enough snow to cause an avalance (sorry)
[07:26:16] GM: the base has three major componants, the admin areas, the motor pool areas, and the shuttle pads.
[07:26:34] GM: the base itself is spread out over a 1/2 mile area
[07:27:27] GM: it is defended by walls and fences, foor patrols, and guard towers, there are alos some AA emplacements here and there
[07:28:57] GM: the base (this isall based on your latest intell) usually has two shuttle/transports on the pad, with a few others on standby, and the motor pool plays host to amybe twenty or so assorted light vehicles that are suited to the terrain, mainly four legged walking tank type things, but nothing mecha sized.
[07:29:33] GM: and the base has about 150 to 250 men all told
[07:31:36] Febrith Nyx makes sure there's room on her belt for more notches.
[07:31:37] GM: 4th Claw in total will assault it, and your Fang has been tasked with clearing the surrounding area, once you go loud then rest of the Claw will pounce, once they are engaged, you are to mop up outside, and then set up containment.
[07:32:10] GM: Beyond that, use your initiative and judgement
[07:36:33] GM: okay, questions, comments?
[07:38:30] Febrith Nyx: ((So stealth mission with a bunch of people without Prowl?))
[07:39:21] GM: No, not at all, any base like this will have patrols out on the perimeter, find them, kill them then set up so you can peg any bolters.
[07:39:22] CWO3 Sarah: (( no, it's not stealth. It's us get to the area near it, start blasting things, draw attention to us, so they can hit from the back more. That's why they pounce when we go loud. Cause attention will be on us. ))
[07:39:45] Febrith Nyx: ((got ya.))
[07:39:50] CWO3 Sarah: (( hehe ))
[07:42:49] Cpt Ishida (Delta Actual): Mealess.
[07:43:13] 2LT Komillia Maeless: "Where do you want me to setup a sniper's nest?"
[07:43:40] Cpt Ishida (Delta Actual): Before that, I'll need you to disburse the platoon once we hit atmo.
[07:44:52] 2LT Komillia Maeless: ((BRB, maybe. stomach is acting up again…))
[07:46:19] Cpt Ishida (Delta Actual): I'm thinking we have Fleet drop us behind the ridge behind the base, then skim in. I'll want a squad watching the road in and out, two more to conduct the assault, I'll take 1st Squad up a ways long the rise behind the base to maintain overwatch and call out enemy troop movements as I see them.
[07:53:47] 2LT Komillia Maeless: Copy that. Madressa, you and I will lead the assault teams. Nyx, I need you to watch the road and keep watch for enemy movement on that front.
[07:54:05] Febrith Nyx: I hear ya.
[07:54:13] CWO3 Sarah: (( Madresa isn't here. ))
[07:54:26] CWO3 Sarah: (( lol ))
[07:54:38] Febrith Nyx: ((then what is Sarah's last name again…))
[07:54:47] Cpt Ishida (Delta Actual): ((Amdhal))
[07:54:50] CWO3 Sarah: (( Sarah's is Amdahl, Aylanea's is Madresa' ))
[07:54:54] CWO3 Sarah: (( :) ))
[07:55:00] Cpt Ishida (Delta Actual): ((or just call he what Suki does…Chief))
[07:55:11] 2LT Komillia Maeless: ((Fine, chief.))
[07:55:12] CWO3 Sarah nods to Komi. "Acknowledged…"
[07:55:14] Cpt Ishida (Delta Actual): ((even in bed it's Chief))
[07:55:26] CWO3 Sarah: (( or just use Sarah, she's probably gonna acknowledge that best ))
[07:57:01] GM: Okay, the plan is suggested to Major An'jhali and she approves, and the request is forwarded up to the Fleet to drop us where desired.
[07:59:13] 2LT Komillia Maeless: ((Does the major also make jewelrey?))
[07:59:27] CWO3 Sarah: (( lol ))
[07:59:28] GM: Maybe…
[08:00:28] GM: Okay, you suit up and kit out. Fleet does their thing and then the bay doors under you open up and the little yellow light goes purple and out you go.
[08:01:07] GM: And 22 power armor suits decend onto your target area
[08:02:10] 2LT Komillia Maeless: ((dammit, suits. Somebody break out the anti-lawyer weaponry. Also standby on the anti-politician weapons in case I'm wrong about the subspecies…))
[08:02:27] CWO3 Sarah: (( lol ))
[08:02:42] GM: you braking thruster packs fire, piercing the forest mountain air with loud screams of superheated plasma then detatch, leaving your armor to go the rest of the way. Your internal thrusters slow the rest of the decent and then you are down.
[08:03:34] Cpt Ishida (Delta Actual) takes a head count.
[08:03:55] Cpt Ishida (Delta Actual) then turns to Komi and points with two fingers.
[08:04:11] Cpt Ishida (Delta Actual): Move them out if you please.
[08:06:59] 2LT Komillia Maeless: Nyx, make your way to the road, I'll give you a three minute headstart to get there and set up. Chief, take the right flank, I'll take the left. Proceed slow until you can see the enemy and then light them up. The further they are the slower their reinforcements arrive and the farther from their base they are when the main force hits. Go.
[08:07:36] 2LT Komillia Maeless: Try to setup a crossfire whenver possible.
[08:08:20] Cpt Ishida (Delta Actual) nods at that then gets her squad into a staggard column.
[08:09:52] GM: S1 [1d100] => [52] = (52) S2 [1d100] => [66] = (66) S3 [1d100] => [31] = (31) S4 [1d100] => [95] = (95) Contact 45%
[08:10:38] GM: Sarah your squad makes contact with the enemy (for reff, Ishida = S1, Komi 2, Sarah 3, Nyx 4)
[08:10:51] CWO3 Sarah: (( eek, ah. ))
[08:11:37] GM: inits
[08:11:45] GM: and attacks
[08:11:53] GM: in toto using your Devo MECT
[08:11:59] CWO3 Sarah: [1d20+4] => [13,4] = (17)
[08:12:15] CWO3 Sarah: (( 8 attacks. ))
[08:13:17] 2LT Komillia Maeless: [1d20+3] => [19,3] = (22) ((9 attacks…))
[08:13:28] Febrith Nyx: [1d20+3] => [12,3] = (15) ((7 attacks…))
[08:15:01] GM: gimme some time to set this up
[08:15:02] CWO3 Sarah: (( lols ))
[08:15:04] CWO3 Sarah: (( k ))
[08:15:23] CWO3 Sarah: (( wow, numbers actually in the grid! ))
[08:15:25] CWO3 Sarah: (( lol ))
[08:19:31] Febrith Nyx: ((bright green may not have been the smartest choice on a white background…))
[08:20:01] GM: change background color
[08:20:01] CWO3 Sarah: (( rofl ))
[08:20:16] GM: [1d20+8] => [8,8] = (16)
[08:20:34] CWO3 Sarah: (( must be a GM to change the backgruond ))
[08:20:35] GM: [1d8] => [7] = (7)
[08:20:40] Febrith Nyx: ((you mean with the big "No sign" I get when I hover over it.))
[08:21:03] GM: here, should be the dark green I have set
[08:21:05] GM: but…
[08:21:28] GM: hmm, turned mine blue… lol
[08:21:32] GM: oh well, works for me
[08:21:37] CWO3 Sarah: (( that' works ))
[08:21:41] CWO3 Sarah: (( that's easy to read now ))
[08:21:43] CWO3 Sarah: (( lol ))
[08:24:40] GM: Okay, Sarah, your attack. As you crest the ridge, you see below you amongst some trees a gaggle of dismounts, about 7, as well as two IFV's
[08:25:32] CWO3 Sarah calls her squad to hold for moment, evaluates the enemies, then marks the enemies for her squad, drawing them up into position.
[08:25:33] GM: The IFV's seem to have gone up the mountian as far as they can and their infantry is moving out with them covering their approaches
[08:25:51] CWO3 Sarah: (( and all of that takes one attack, we open fire niext attack. ))
[08:27:06] GM: You do this and your squad forms up, the two IFV's note your presence and open fire. the left most one opens up with it's guns and the other opens up with a missile barrage. [1d20+8] => [14,8] = (22) for guns at [1d4] => [3] = (3) Sarah you are 1 2-3 are squadmates) and the missels (a pair of them) [1d20+3] => [15,3] = (18) at [1d4] => [3] = (3)
[08:27:24] GM: [1d20+9] => [13,9] = (22) and [1d20+9] => [11,9] = (20)
[08:27:53] CWO3 Sarah: (( geebs ))
[08:27:56] CWO3 Sarah: (( lol ))
[08:28:07] GM: Your squadie is hit by the cannon, is missed by the missiles. [44d6*10] => 1610
[08:28:15] GM: [4d6*10] => 130
[08:28:25] CWO3 Sarah: (( I was gonna say… lol ))
[08:28:26] GM: ((sorry, didnt mean to give you a heart attack))
[08:28:38] GM: Sarah
[08:28:41] CWO3 Sarah: (( hee hee ))
[08:29:48] CWO3 Sarah returns fire, firing a HEAT round at one of the IFVs. [1d20+7] => [13,7] = (20)
[08:30:47] GM: [1d20+5] => [15,5] = (20)
[08:32:32] CWO3 Sarah: [2d4*10] => 50
[08:32:35] GM: Your HEAT round lances out at the offending IFV and as it is sationary it cannot dodge. A small turret on the side of the hull snaps towards the incoming round and a bright beam of green light slices out at the HEAT round, but it point D laser was to slow and the HEAT round to fast! Roll damage.
[08:33:17] GM: the single round impacts agsint the IFV with a loud rining blang leaving a star shaped blast point.
[08:33:22] CWO3 Sarah: (( woot ))
[08:33:44] GM: The rest of your squad opens fire on their marked targets hijinx and helarity ensue
[08:34:12] GM: [3d20] => [4,8,15] = (27) all at +3 (inits for enemy
[08:35:10] GM: The IVF you hit slews it's turret towards you Sarah and opens fire [1d20+8] => [11,8] = (19)
[08:35:31] CWO3 Sarah: [1d20+10] => [1,10] = (11) dodge

[08:35:41] CWO3 Sarah: (( oooo kay ))
[08:35:44] GM: Your gimblas freeze [4d6*10] => 110
[08:35:52] GM: and you take a nasty hit dead center
[08:36:21] GM: As you fall backwards the other two targets that could have fired at you turn their attention to something else [2d20] => [8,7] = (15)
[08:36:39] GM: you action Sarah
[08:37:42] GM: Carrie?
[08:38:39] CWO3 Sarah returns fire quickly. [1d20+7] => [9,7] = (16)
[08:38:48] CWO3 Sarah: (( same weapon ))
[08:38:59] GM: Meanshile Suki, watching the feed from Sarah cam's put her unit into a halt.
[08:39:46] CWO3 Sarah: (( was looking for the mecha MDC numbers from last week, think I may have chopped them off the log by accident ))
[08:40:11] CWO3 Sarah: (( actually if I need an action to get up, that's this action here ))
[08:40:15] CWO3 Sarah: (( now that I think on it ))

[08:40:38] Cpt Ishida (Delta Actual) moves her sqaud back out again.

[08:41:55] GM: the IFV at Sara, the dismount at someone else [1d20+8] => [16,8] = (24)
[08:42:12] GM: ((Nyx, you are squad 4 btw))
[08:42:47] Febrith Nyx: "You heard the lady, we need to bail out squad two. Move it!"
[08:42:50] CWO3 Sarah: [1d20+10] => [3,10] = (13) dodge
[08:42:59] GM: [4d6*10] => 180

[08:48:47] Febrith Nyx: ((Computer is going nuts, I'm trying to pull up the stats, and I'm getting NOTHING.))
[08:48:55] GM: yipe
[08:49:39] Febrith Nyx fires her rifle at the IFV attacking Sarah. [1d20+6] => [6,6] = (12)

[08:59:00] CWO3 Sarah: (( k ))
[08:59:00] Febrith Nyx: [3d4*10] => 90
[09:00:38] GM: Your shots impact and penetrate the IFV forcefully (giggity) the turret is blow off sending the top half of the track commander sailing. The bottom half keeps backing up uncontrollably until it back up onto a tree and tips onto it's side, it's tracks still spinning, chewing the dirt up.
[09:00:55] GM: Sarah
[09:01:23] CWO3 Sarah turns quickly for the other IFV, opening fire on that with the grenade launcher now. [1d20+7] => [9,7] = (16)
[09:01:26] CWO3 Sarah: (( gah ))
[09:01:30] GM: [1d20+5] => [18,5] = (23)

[09:02:10] GM: The track comamnder in that IFV displaces as well and the dismounts begin to pull back
[09:02:24] GM: Sarah, last action
[09:02:47] CWO3 Sarah tries to fire again, wanting to keep the IFV's attention. [1d20+7] => [3,7] = (10)
[09:02:49] CWO3 Sarah: (( gah ))
[09:02:52] CWO3 Sarah: (( *sigh* ))
[09:02:59] GM: You blow a tree in half
[09:03:16] GM: Restar of round,
[09:03:30] GM: you have a choice, you can let them go, or press the attack, they are still in range
[09:03:44] GM: Of course, your choice should be clear
[09:04:08] CWO3 Sarah: (( yeah, the idea is to keep the heavier units from getting back to that base, as I recall. ))
[09:04:19] GM: ((a yup))
[09:04:27] Febrith Nyx: ((press the attack, that is the mission…))
[09:04:28] GM: (9well, keep ANY units fro… etc)
[09:04:30] CWO3 Sarah fires on the IFV. Again. [1d20+7] => [7,7] = (14)

[09:05:42] GM: [1d20+8] => [8,8] = (16) vs [1d20+10] => [4,10] = (14)
[09:05:47] GM: [4d6*10] => 90
[09:05:47] CWO3 Sarah: (( eek ))
[09:05:56] GM: One of your units took a hit Nyx
[09:06:05] GM: Nyx your action
[09:06:40] Febrith Nyx keeps firing on the wounded IFV. [1d20+9] => [15,9] = (24)
[09:06:46] GM: [1d20+2] => [1,2] = (3)
[09:06:56] GM: Itty Bitty light burns out

[09:08:21] CWO3 Sarah: (( max damage ))
[09:08:24] GM: James?
[09:08:48] Febrith Nyx: [3d4*10] => 110
[09:09:02] Febrith Nyx keeps firing on the wounded IFV. [1d20+9] => [1,9] = (10)
[09:09:03] GM: umm, kinda needed a strike first
[09:09:10] GM: jam!
[09:09:20] CWO3 Sarah: (( rotfl ))
[09:09:23] GM: IFV fires on [1d8] => [1] = (1)
[09:09:35] GM: [1d20+6] => [2,6] = (8)
[09:09:45] GM: Lucky…
[09:09:46] CWO3 Sarah: (( lol ))
[09:10:18] GM: Sarah, your laughter at Nyx's expance is quased as a burst of autocannon fires slams into the ground around you, bearly missing you.
[09:10:26] GM: quashed
[09:10:40] GM: Sarah your action, then Nyx
[09:10:55] CWO3 Sarah fires at the retreating IFV. Again. [1d20+7] => [5,7] = (12)
[09:10:59] CWO3 Sarah: (( any laughing I did was ooc :p ))
[09:11:00] GM: [1d20+3] => [15,3] = (18)
[09:11:01] CWO3 Sarah: (( rar ))
[09:11:06] GM: Nyx
[09:11:22] GM: Sarah you fail to hit the fleeing IFV, hitting another tree in the process
[09:12:03] Febrith Nyx clears the jam.
[09:12:12] Febrith Nyx: ((almost said gym..))
[09:12:31] CWO3 Sarah: (( hehe ))
[09:13:11] GM: Sarah
[09:13:37] CWO3 Sarah fires at the fleeing IFV, trying to press her attack forward. [1d20+7] => [11,7] = (18)
[09:13:45] GM: [1d20+3] => [11,3] = (14)
[09:13:48] GM: damage
[09:14:01] CWO3 Sarah: [2d4*10] => 60
[09:14:20] GM: You stop it dead in it's tracks…HA! Tank humor.
[09:14:28] CWO3 Sarah: (( *groans* ))
[09:14:31] CWO3 Sarah: (( funny ))
[09:15:06] Febrith Nyx: ((I'll tank you not to do that again.))
[09:15:45] GM: Tanks for the memories
[09:16:12] CWO3 Sarah: (( tracking right down the path to lame here ;) ))
[09:16:14] CWO3 Sarah: (( hehe ))
[09:16:15] GM: The enemy retreat turns into an all out rout as the last bit of armor support is blown apart
[09:17:57] GM: Sarah, your unit with Nyx's clear out the last of the avaialble dismounts, the rest having fled into the trees.
[09:18:12] Cpt Ishida (Delta Actual): Two, say status over.
[09:18:25] Cpt Ishida (Delta Actual): ((Three rather, oops)
[09:19:04] CWO3 Sarah: "Area cleared, Mech significantly damaged, but not dead yet."
[09:19:10] Febrith Nyx one member shot pretty bad, I have some damage too. Looks like I got off better than 3-1 though."
[09:19:23] Febrith Nyx: "One member shot pretty bad, I have some damage too. Looks like I got off better than 3-1 though."
[09:19:53] CWO3 Sarah: "I had a squad member hit a time or two as well." she look sover to see how bad they are for sure.
[09:20:48] Cpt Ishida (Delta Actual): Roger that, 4, proceed to target area. 3, use your judgement, but if your mecha is to far gone, I want you to pull back and I'll peel off a replacement.
[09:21:34] Febrith Nyx: ((what is the status of it? Sorry, not sure what the starting number was.))
[09:21:50] Cpt Ishida (Delta Actual): ((MD main body on the Isable is 375))[09:22:15] CWO3 Sarah sighs. "It's a bit over 3/4 torn up I think, but it's still shooting. If it dies totally, I can just evac the other way, if yo udon't want to spare a mech.
[09:23:33] Cpt Ishida (Delta Actual) groans mentally at Sarah's reply.
[09:23:36] Febrith Nyx: ((I was only hit with a 110 so I should be okay.))
[09:23:45] Febrith Nyx: "I should be good for now."
[09:23:54] Cpt Ishida (Delta Actual): Roger that, 1 clear.
[09:25:52] GM: You move up into your positions as ahead of you wyou can hear the rest of the Claw dropping onto the enemy.
[09:26:38] CWO3 Sarah moves up, trying to stay back behind the others, watching with her ranged weapons, trying noit to get too far past standoff maximum range, while others with less damage are in front.
[09:27:03] GM: The fight seems to be going well. roll percs
[09:27:11] Febrith Nyx: [1d20] => [3] = (3)
[09:27:14] 2LT Komillia Maeless: [1d20] => [2] = (2)
[09:27:23] GM: [1d100] => [31] = (31)
[09:27:26] CWO3 Sarah: [1d20+1] => [5,1] = (6)
[09:27:26] GM: [1d20] => [4] = (4)
[09:27:28] 2LT Komillia Maeless: ((… My dice seem to be as sick as me…))
[09:27:33] CWO3 Sarah: (( lols@ the percs ))
[09:27:57] GM: Squirrels, squirrels everywhere
[09:28:09] GM: Komi and Suki, RSI please
[09:29:08] GM: [1d100] => [98] = (98)
[09:29:10] CWO3 Sarah: (( shoulda gotten teleport object instead of that other thing, could be porting squirrels into people's pants ))
[09:29:15] 2LT Komillia Maeless: [1d100] => [4] = (4)
[09:29:15] Cpt Ishida (Delta Actual): [1d100] => [42] = (42)
[09:29:59] 2LT Komillia Maeless: ((Firefox is crashing like one of Sarah's Betas… Swear get that girl into something that can move…))
[09:30:04] GM: Komi you detect it forst, an inbound shuttle. You sweep your sniper rifle up and thru the scope can see it's a Bondar shuttle approaching the base at high speed.
[09:30:05] CWO3 Sarah: (( rar ))
[09:30:15] CWO3 Sarah: (( *paddles Komi* ))
[09:30:35] 2LT Komillia Maeless: "Incoming Bondar Shuttle. Taking the shot at its cockpit."
[09:30:39] 2LT Komillia Maeless aims.
[09:30:43] GM: Mecha and Sarah dont go well, maybe it's time to apply fantasy armor rules and have her go into battle naked.
[09:30:52] CWO3 Sarah: (( lol ))
[09:30:52] GM: least that way, we wont lose any more machines
[09:31:06] CWO3 Sarah: (( why you think she has energy field? :p ))
[09:31:06] GM: ((range is a bit out there roll a tactics if you have it
[09:31:40] 2LT Komillia Maeless: ((or just use Aquarion Evol's Pilot Suit gimmick. Have her stip almost naked and give her a dodge bonus nearly 3 times that of Suki's and Ay's combined…))
[09:31:40] CWO3 Sarah: (( only has 80 md right now, but… with the armor underneath… ))
[09:31:49] 2LT Komillia Maeless: ((nope))
[09:32:09] Cpt Ishida (Delta Actual): Roger that Lead, hold off for a seven count, it'll be in range of my guns then. We'll bracket it with fire.
[09:32:28] 2LT Komillia Maeless: Copy that.
[09:32:59] GM: The seconds tick past as the shuttle approaches, until it's time to fire.
[09:33:06] GM: Komi and Suki fire
[09:33:48] Cpt Ishida (Delta Actual): [1d20+12] => [12,12] = (24) CS engine.
[09:34:13] 2LT Komillia Maeless: [1d20+14] => [9,14] = (23)
[09:34:40] GM: Komi you hit the main body
[09:34:50] 2LT Komillia Maeless: ((cockpit, if I had rolled high enough for a BLEEPING called shot…))
[09:34:51] GM: Damage will be 5d6x10
[09:34:57] 2LT Komillia Maeless: [5d6*10] => 120
[09:35:00] GM: ((i know..))
[09:35:11] GM: and suki is similer damage
[09:35:17] GM: [5d6*10] => 150
[09:36:05] GM: Your shot komi rakes the shuttles underbelly while Suki's shears an engine clean off the fram, the shuttle madly tries to alter course [1d100] => [69] = (69)
[09:36:15] GM: And does so in sexy fashion
[09:36:28] GM: Komi and Suki fire again
[09:36:45] Cpt Ishida (Delta Actual): [1d20+12] => [4,12] = (16) CS another engine
[09:37:09] 2LT Komillia Maeless: [1d20+12] => [18,12] = (30) (cockpit)
[09:37:22] 2LT Komillia Maeless: [5d6*10] => 150
[09:39:38] GM: Komi your shot impacts the cockpit from below. The cockpit canopy is instantly bathed crimson and a single hole erupts from it spewing gore and blood across the top as Suki's shots rake the underbelly and in combination with the earlier damage you did Komi, treas the guts out of the bird. It pitches over trailing flailing bodies out of the rend in her hull as she plumets. [1d100] => [77] = (77) 30% chance of hitting the landing pad
[09:40:27] GM: A good 5 seconds later a fireball confirms it's status as Lawn Dart
[09:40:29] 2LT Komillia Maeless: "Boom. Headshot."
[09:42:53] GM: The rest of the base is reduce, You all bad a good amount of bolters, most are killed, the Wolf's dont seem keen on taking prisoners. But,a few are taken captive.
[09:43:00] GM: bad = bag
[09:43:47] GM: You collapse onto the shattered base and note the carnage.
[09:43:50] GM: Free RP
[09:44:05] Cpt Ishida (Delta Actual) will check in with the Major.
[09:44:26] 2LT Komillia Maeless: "So, Sarah, do the Invid believe in curses?"
[09:45:23] CWO3 Sarah glances over and laughs, shaking her head. "Just a bad day. Not sure why I couldn't move away from anything…" She sighs. "two hits and I end up nearly defunct…" she sighs.,
[09:45:43] Trow: Light weight!
[09:47:27] 2LT Komillia Maeless: "Do I have to drink you under the table?"
[09:47:56] 2LT Komillia Maeless looks pointedly at the Trow.
[09:48:35] 2LT Komillia Maeless: "Oooh, or better yet. When do you have a Mixed Martial Arts tourney?"
[09:48:36] Trow: Oh, what, can't take a joke?
[09:49:28] 2LT Komillia Maeless: "I'm Zentraedi, I can take a joke. I just like asserting dominance in the face of a challenge."
[09:49:51] Trow: Zen what-y?
[09:50:39] 2LT Komillia Maeless: "It's the name of my speices dumbass."
[09:50:41] CWO3 Sarah laughs. "Probably never heard of Zentraedi here. Or Invid. And I'd be surprised if they'd seen or heard of the Haydonites. Too far away from that area."
[09:53:05] CWO3 Sarah smiles. "Just an advantage of being a long way from normal areas. Kinda like that part of it, in a way."
[09:53:56] 2LT Komillia Maeless: "An advantage for you, maybe. I want a macronization pod right now."
[09:54:54] CWO3 Sarah laughs and shakes her head. "Yeah, then you wouldn't fit into anything they have here, at all."
[09:55:21] 2LT Komillia Maeless: "No, but I'd be the biggest girl around."
[09:55:31] 2LT Komillia Maeless: "In more ways than one."
[09:55:33] CWO3 Sarah: "Not that I do entirely either, everyone here is taller than me."
[09:55:53] Cpt Ishida (Delta Actual) arrives as Komi makes her latest statement.
[09:56:17] Cpt Ishida (Delta Actual): Dont feel bad, you in the top ten.
[09:56:38] Febrith Nyx: "If you want to play nice with the Trow, sleep with them. It'll blow off any pent up steam, and asserting your dominance would be a fun challenge for all involved."
[09:56:54] Cpt Ishida (Delta Actual) nods, knowingly
[09:59:40] CWO3 Sarah starts laughing a little bit. "If they aren't going to think they might snap me in half, I might consider it." She smiles and winks at Suki.
[10:00:00] Cpt Ishida (Delta Actual): That aside, Major An'jhali wants us to go take a look at soemthing. That shuttle we pasted was sent to recce a downed Bondar ship.
[10:00:17] CWO3 Sarah blinks and nods a little bit.
[10:00:31] Cpt Ishida (Delta Actual): We move in 15 mikes.
[10:01:04] GM: About two hours later by skim, you arrive at the crash site.
[10:01:43] GM: It's a Bondar frighter, on the mid to large side, and it's crashed into a clearing of it's own making.
[10:02:29] Febrith Nyx looks over the shuttle. [1d20] => [7] = (7) PERC, [1d100] => [11] = (11) vs 59 Intelligence
[10:02:37] GM: ((shuttle?))
[10:02:58] 2LT Komillia Maeless: [1d20] => [12] = (12) PERC, [1d100] => [79] = (79) vs 70 RSI
[10:03:11] 2LT Komillia Maeless: ((freighter what ever…))
[10:03:32] CWO3 Sarah: [1d20+1] => [20,1] = (21) perc
[10:03:38] CWO3 Sarah: (( … wow ))
[10:03:47] CWO3 Sarah: (( where was that roll when I was shooting things?! :p ))
[10:04:02] GM: Nyx, the frighter looks like it had been attacked, extreanlly, and interanlly, Komi, you recognize the distinct brun marks of a boarding ring.
[10:04:19] GM: Sarah, you detect traces of PC from inside the wreck
[10:05:25] CWO3 Sarah blinks and sighs. "Well, looks like our wars just came back to us, trace reading of protoculture inside the wreck…" She frowns.
[10:06:05] 2LT Komillia Maeless: Yep, a boarding action happened here too.
[10:06:06] GM: In due course and in proper fashion you enter the wreck and after a bit of searching you come across the body of a Reaver.
[10:07:41] GM: As in Haydonte Reaver
[10:07:43] 2LT Komillia Maeless: "Toasters."
[10:07:56] CWO3 Sarah sighs. "Great."
[10:07:58] 2LT Komillia Maeless: "So they did follow us through.
[10:08:12] Cpt Ishida (Delta Actual) nods.
[10:08:18] CWO3 Sarah: "Kinda figured on that, the question was just where they went after."
[10:08:45] Cpt Ishida (Delta Actual): Secure the rest of the wreck, we might have to check on that shuttle we downed, if the Black Box here is missing.
[10:09:08] 2LT Komillia Maeless nods.
[10:09:41] CWO3 Sarah frowns and nods.
[10:10:55] 2LT Komillia Maeless looks over the wreck for anything of use. [1d20] => [16] = (16) PERC [1d100] => [9] = (9) vs 70 RSI
[10:11:24] GM: In the course of securing the vessle, you note that there are a few more bodies of Haydonties aboard. And best you can tell, they forced entrey while the ship was under way, the frieghter, somehow managed to break free and likly took a few parting shots before jumping to FTL. The crew fought the Haydonites and managed to kill a few , some directly, and you figure based on the missing cargo hatch, a few likely got tossed over board in a cargo bay depressurization.
[10:11:37] GM: There are a few Haydontie weapons
[10:12:06] 2LT Komillia Maeless gathers them.
[10:12:50] GM: You guys dont find the black box, and after a two hour transit back to the base, and another 30 minutes downthe mountain to check on the shuttle you eventually find it.
[10:13:37] GM: You also note that the bodies of teh freighter crew that had managed to survive their Haydonite incursion strewn across the mountian side.
[10:14:17] GM: Along with a number of Bondar regulars.
[10:14:50] GM: Actions?
[10:15:42] 2LT Komillia Maeless looks for the black box and anything else interesting. [1d20] => [5] = (5) PERC, [1d100] => [69] = (69) vs 70 RSI
[10:16:19] CWO3 Sarah: (( we found that ))
[10:16:22] CWO3 Sarah: (( lol ))
[10:16:24] Cpt Ishida (Delta Actual) puts on a strong front, but inside feels awful about the dead frighter crew, and, performs a cleansing ritual for the frighter crew remains she can locate.
[10:16:45] CWO3 Sarah sighs very softly at the freighter crew, shaking her head lightly.
[10:16:53] GM: Oh but with a 69 roll she found it in sexy fashion,
[10:17:48] GM: under some wreckage that she had to burrow into with her ass in the air, and tugging it out well, it just looked so wrong, or right depending, as she worked the box loose.
[10:17:50] Febrith Nyx will analyze everything she can see to put together what happened. [1d20] => [18] = (18) PERC, [1d30] => [27] = (27) vs 23 IQ, [1d100] => [58] = (58) vs 78 Anthropology, [1d100] => [38] = (38) vs 78 Astrophysics, [1d100] => [20] = (20) vs 63 Pychology, [1d100] => [52] = (52) vs 59 Intelligence, [ 1d100] => [48] = (48) vs 68 Mecha Engineer
[10:18:20] Febrith Nyx: ((IQ fail but…))
[10:18:27] GM: Hurr durr
[10:19:24] GM: You eventaully piece together the series of events, made easier becuase the BB was not encrypted or wiped (after all, those that found it were frendlies, and sanitizing the BB was the last thing on any ones mind as their shuttle was blown apart around them)
[10:21:48] GM: you gain the location of Bondar orbital base likely a pirate/smuggler port of call, the ship was attacked there, and escaped, the BB shows that a Haydonite ship Fantoma class defolded right on top of them and just open fire on anything that moved. (Nyx, you've never seen this enemy before, and from what you see here, these folks are maniacal murderes) hordes of Wraith fighters took out station defenses, work tugs, what few Bondar fighter craft that could get into the air, while the Fantoma siezed the staion,
[10:22:24] CWO3 Sarah just sighs and shakes her head.
[10:22:58] GM: the frighter and a few few others tried to run, but all were boarded, and only this frighter (based on the BB) managed to escape. The internal feed play backa ptiched battle, but you know the details of that already, the BB mearly confirms them, and hoirribly so, puts faces and voices to the crew.
[10:23:40] Major An'jhali watches the footage as well
[10:24:19] Major An'jhali: You know this foe?
[10:24:37] Major An'jhali adresses the 'Embiri'
[10:25:01] Cpt Ishida (Delta Actual): Yes Sera, we've been fighting them for the last two cycles.
[10:25:23] Major An'jhali: I see.
[10:26:10] Major An'jhali: I know it's not our policy to ask our mercs where they came from or why they are here, but, I would like to ask this. You aren't here becuase your race was scattered to the nine moons were they?
[10:26:28] Cpt Ishida (Delta Actual): No Sera, not quite.
[10:27:01] 2LT Komillia Maeless: If I may explain? Given the fact I wanted to be upfront from the get go?
[10:27:09] Cpt Ishida (Delta Actual): The war still rages, we are here becuae we followed them here, to stop them from doing whatever it was we think they aretrying to accomplish.
[10:27:28] 2LT Komillia Maeless: ((scratch that.))
[10:27:31] CWO3 Sarah: "the actual fight has been two cycles, but they're known from well before that to reduce entire planets into uninhabitability. They tried to do it again to start the fight now."
[10:27:31] Cpt Ishida (Delta Actual) looks over t Komi, and makes 'all yours' motion with her head.
[10:32:39] CWO3 Sarah: (( eep, lots o typing ))
[10:32:42] CWO3 Sarah: (( hehe ))
[10:33:17] 2LT Komillia Maeless: "One of the scarcest resources in out neck of the universe is an exotic power source known as Protoculture. While it was most recently, several thousand years ago, discovered by a being named Zor. A lot of wars and destruction was fought over the stuff. But that wasn't the sole uniting factor in the sector. See there is a precursor race that left behind clues about who they were, what their tech was and where they went. Our enemies, the Haydonites, was looking for them so we went after them to stop them. The Haydonites are a machine race that views all cultures that use Protoculture as Addicts and are trying to put us all down. Especially a species called the Invid, who share a symbiotic link to the Flower of Life, the plant that PRotoculture is derived from. The Haydonites have manipulated at least two civilizations in failed attempts to wipe them out. Anyway, our mission to stop the Haydonites from achieving this goal led us to a massive relay. That relay activated while we and three ships of our enemy's were there and shot us out into this neck of the woods."
[10:34:16] Cpt Ishida (Delta Actual) nods.
[10:35:45] Cpt Ishida (Delta Actual): From what we have been able to ascertain, the Haydonite in charge of the flotilla who we folowed is a Haydonite Prelate named Valtagos the Cruel. Prelate is rougle equal to General, or Lord…
[10:37:51] Cpt Ishida (Delta Actual): he is a particulally, well, cruel, butcher, even more fanatical and hardline then your run of the mill Haydonite. He believes that the furhter one travels towards the galactic core, the greter his chances of locating some lost and potentially devestaing tech left over from what we call teh Settlers. We feel that he may use this tech to tip the balance of power in our secotr and effectily wipe us all out.
[10:39:36] CWO3 Sarah glances up idly, murmuring softly. "The Haydonites found the Invid a long time before the current cycle of wars, they used the neutron weapons on our original homeworld, that's why we were on Optera to be found in the first place." She sighs. "That's why the weapons they offered use of to "take back" Earth were recognized for what they were. The Invid barely escaped that time." She quiets odwn after that, nodding at Suki's words.
[10:40:14] Cpt Ishida (Delta Actual): We have been involved in a race of sorts to recover, or at the very least, deny him access to certian artifacts that would have allowed him to use the gateway relay correctly. As it stands with a number of artifacts on his vessle, and some on ours, the reaction with the relay, likely initiated by our desire to FTL away, brought us all here in what we call a 'blind jump'.
[10:42:18] Cpt Ishida (Delta Actual): If the Major would be accomodating, I would like to take a look at that station they attacked, it might have been a wanton attack, he is maniacal enough to do that, but, Haydonites are calculating, and this may have been his way of seeking information.
[10:42:57] Major An'jhali: I see, and, how do your people, seek infomration? Hmm?
[10:43:15] Cpt Ishida (Delta Actual): We get stranded on a backwater, and then jin a group of mercenaries.
[10:43:25] Cpt Ishida (Delta Actual): (jin = join)
[10:43:41] Major An'jhali snorts with a wan smile.
[10:44:12] CWO3 Sarah laughs just a little at Suki's comment.
[10:44:24] 2LT Komillia Maeless: "Normally, this would involve cosmetic surgery, a good actor, and about 30 tons of precious minerals."
[10:44:36] Major An'jhali blinks.
[10:45:09] Major An'jhali shakes it off and then looks over some of the footage from the portions before 'all hell broke loose'
[10:45:27] CWO3 Sarah blinks at Komillia as well
[10:46:08] Major An'jhali: Okay, we go, if anything the prize money for this capture will be worth it, and, if you can get some answers to your questions, well, a tikitiki's dream i suppose.
[10:47:20] Major An'jhali: It'll be a while before the Fleet folks cart us off this rock. So, SOP until then. I want you to cover the northern approaches to make sure that no Bondar counter attacks….
[10:47:31] 2LT Komillia Maeless: "What nobody watches spy films?"
[10:47:45] CWO3 Sarah laughs.
[10:48:09] GM: A few days go by and the Fleet folks show up to exfil us, replaing our presence with more vaulable regualrs
[10:48:14] CWO3 Sarah: (( heh ))
[10:48:14] 2LT Komillia Maeless nods at the new orders.

[10:49:50] GM: You eventually arrive with the fleet at the station. It's almost sad, the few Bondar vessles on station, recoving from their savaging at the hands of the Haydonites are now faced with a Trow Battle Group, they fold quickly, and without a shot fired.
[10:49:59] GM: ((yes, we will call it here))
[10:50:23] GM: and by fold I mean piss their pants and surrender, not FTL away
