[07:36:05] WO Febrith Nyx: So what are the resources these houses are willing to throw at them and how much do they want us to be their bitch to get them?
[07:36:42] WO Febrith Nyx: Did we learn if there is any response that came from the Fighter Pod patrol?
[07:37:21] 2Lt. Sarah: How we getting the freighter crew out? They won't fit aboard the mechs, and may be in poor condition. We'll need a shuttle or something. The fighter pod patrol caused them to shore up defenses and not send anything, getting ready for major attack, for one thing.
[07:37:29] GM: Well, in off camera talks between the colonel and the house representatives, the Havoc will form the C&C hub for the Houses general set piece assault on the Pirates main city as well as the main strongholds or the collaboarting merchent House.
[07:38:26] GM: Meanwhile you all are tasked with bringing down the shields of teh Black Keep
[07:38:37] GM: The houses have offered to assit in that
[07:38:42] WO Febrith Nyx: So she managed to avoid the "We need you to be out bitches so we have the people's respect when you leave."
[07:38:50] GM: rather, in getting you in, or otherwise into the area.
[07:39:31] WO Febrith Nyx: Are the shield generatos big, ugly exposed targets like in Star Wars? If not, do we have ANY intel on them?
[07:39:38] GM: No exactly sure what you meant there james, but maybe, essentially, Suki is of the mind that "You respect your freedom more if you fought for it yourself."
[07:40:37] GM: Yet, manuvers herself, the Havoc and by extension the REF in general as an indespensible part of the process, without which there would be no chance of success.
[07:41:05] WO Febrith Nyx: I half expect a group of warlords and politicians to want to look like the people in the position of strength in this little arrangement so they keep the people's respect rather than being seen as weaklings who needed someone else to bail them out. Regardless of that being the actual case.
[07:41:19] GM: That is also a good factor
[07:41:39] LtJG Silver: …
[07:42:35] WO Febrith Nyx: I'm being expecially cynical today…
[07:42:50] GM: and this achieves that as WELL as the importnt aspect of getting them to work together for the first time in 30 years, so that when the pirates are gone, they can better integrate back into galactic society as a unified psystem rather then as a planet of backwater states with no central govt.
[07:43:47] GM: Trust me, if more leaders lead based on cynicim, rather then idealism…thing might be a better place.
[07:44:15] GM: But, that is a debate for another time and place.
[07:44:45] 2Lt. Sarah: nod
[07:45:40] GM: Needless to say, I'm putting all that cynasism and politicing and statecraft in the off camera with the people that are suited to it (Suki being aristocracy in her own right and versed in politics etc) leaving yall to have fun blowing shite up
[07:45:54] 2Lt. Sarah: whee!
[07:46:02] 2Lt. Sarah waves a gun pod
[07:46:04] 2Lt. Sarah: ehehe
[07:46:20] GM: And then when it is over you can graba pint and bellyache the decisions of your leaders…
[07:46:57] LtJG Silver: hmm
[07:48:26] WO Febrith Nyx: So anything one these generators or do I have to build a Macross Cannon and then have it fire on the facility?
[07:48:50] GM: So, to the task at hand. Black Keep. As to the fighter pod patrol, like I said prior, it was sent to check up on the pirate envoy to the tourny, since he nor any other agent had reportedin for quite a spell. It's likely that they know that Havoc is involved, since, well, gee, Havoc showed up, hasnt been seen since units from it bloddied an armor push sent to find it. And now this! so yeah, they are aware.
[07:49:23] LtJG Silver: YES!
[07:49:38] GM: Also…Kain never attempted to jam their transmissions so… thbpt, they got the warning out.
[07:49:42] LtJG Silver: ^_^ "build it and they will go …" says the voice in your head
[07:51:08] LtJG Silver: sry :P
[07:51:47] Capt Kain Crockett has ECM, but didn't think about it.
[07:51:57] GM: The generators, are like all Tirolian dsigens, deep deep dep inside the structure (tirolian design doctrine 101, When fighting the DoZ/Ci'Va they have reflex weapons, gotta keep the good protected. Doctrine 201, when fighting the invid, they swarm, gotta keep the goods dep deep deep so a blitz wont leave an area immedialty defenseless.
[07:53:19] GM: On the flip side, the Black Keep is based on exsiting and know doctrine, and the tirolians well, they kinda built things along the same general layout, so, you have a damn good idea where within the structure the goods are.
[07:53:44] Capt Kain Crockett: Are the halls big enough for Zents/mecha, are do we have to go Cyclone?
[07:53:53] LtJG Silver: right in the damn middle just to make it fun >:)
[07:55:16] GM: The halls in the Black keep are indeed Zent sized in fact, the main door (which you have been able to take pictures of, as well as see piantings and photographs of (taken by the locals) show the massive doors, but they are closed, and human sized entry ports large enough say, to drive a pair of semi's thru side by side have been cut into them
[07:56:22] GM: The doors and halls in the Zent portion of the keep will be large enough to accomodate zents, and the central hanger areas will be big enough to accomodate any known zentreadi mecha
[07:57:08] GM: There are of course areas that are micronian size only, (old officers quarters, base admin etc)
[07:57:24] Capt Kain Crockett: That doesn't entirely answer the question: Can we get to the generators without leaving the mecha?
[08:00:28] GM: I'm going to go with no, since it being a mixed facility, there would be no need for the brutish zentraedi to access the power generators. That task would have been left to the more tech savvy tirolians that actually know how to repair things.
[08:03:28] Capt Kain Crockett: "We're going to need guards for our mecha. I'd rather not risk having to take a ride in a cycline, get there and go: Golly gee we needed a tactical nuke to take this place out after all…
[08:03:57] GM: The Colonel will detail such guards as Kain feels is needed.
[08:04:22] 2Lt. Sarah snickers slightly at the 'Golley gee' part.
[08:08:50] Capt Kain Crockett: Okay, let's rock this MOFO. Where's my Antiparticle rifle?
[08:09:09] LtJG Silver frowns slightly " Do you think that would be necessary Sir? It seems like an unnesseary risk to have a unit guarding mecha on standby, why not have two men go in mecha, the rest of the team enter in cyclones that way we can minimize the number of personell in the vacinity." looks lost in thought for a moment befor continuing " Im sure we can load up cargo boxes on the cyclones loaded with enough high explosives to turn the facility to dust " look up at the captain immidiately looking somewhat imbarissed " sorry i didnt mean to speak out of place "
[08:09:23] LtJG Silver: (( sry was slow :P ))
[08:11:50] 2Lt. Sarah: (( cause that splits the party :p :) ))
[08:12:06] LtJG Silver: (( :P ))
[08:12:28] Capt Kain Crockett: "I just dislike havign to worry about evac in a cyclone. Those things were originally built as survival machines, the fact that we don't really have better infantry/spec ops machines kinda bugs me."
[08:12:44] Capt. Komillia Maeless: "There are Devos."
[08:13:10] Capt Kain Crockett: "And how many shuttles would we need?"
[08:13:40] LtJG Silver nods " your right, i understand your consern sir, and it is well placed "
[08:13:44] Capt Kain Crockett: ((AFK, bio))
[08:15:56] WO1 Summerwind: Why not pack em all on a flatbed Biover, get close enough and then self deploy from there?
[08:17:53] Capt Kain Crockett: "There's an idea."
[08:18:07] WO1 Summerwind nods.
[08:18:21] WO1 Summerwind: And maybe the Ewoks might tell ya where the back door to the shield generator is.
[08:19:14] Capt Kain Crockett: "Alright, everyone pack the heaviest gear you know how to pilot that can still squeeze into a human-sized space, and get on a Biover."
[08:20:08] Capt Kain Crockett: "Summerwind, you might be surprised to hear this, but we can probably find people in or around the base willing to do exactly that. They may not be Ewoks in the literal sense, but metaphorically, that sill works."
[08:20:19] WO1 Summerwind: Yub yub sir.
[08:21:45] 2Lt. Sarah laughs.
[08:21:55] LtJG Silver blinks
[08:23:08] WO1 Summerwind: Old terren pre holo vid. LT theres been making me watch em so she doesnt have the /entire/ room looking at her like she's got lobsters crawling out of her ears when she makes a refferance.
[08:24:25] GM: Okay, so, what are you packing/useing?
[08:26:31] LtJG Silver dods "ah, ammusing i assume" looking to the captain " Am I to assume I will be accompanying you all? "
[08:27:25] WO1 Summerwind: Yup, I volunteered you.
[08:27:31] 2Lt. Sarah snickers.
[08:28:07] LtJG Silver frowns moaning slightly " I'll try not to let you down Mam "
[08:28:16] WO1 Summerwind: Better not!
[08:28:28] WO1 Summerwind flashes you a semi crazed smile.
[08:31:18] Capt Kain Crockett is packign a super cyclone with a M-90C.
[08:32:03] 2Lt. Sarah packs her own super, with her pair of C's on it.
[08:32:56] WO1 Summerwind dons her 57 Whisky Deuce.
[08:33:02] LtJG Silver packs a speeder, his weasle and an M90 Lite
[08:33:27] Cpt. Aylanea perks up from smoewhere in back, snatching a super and her C, and checking them over. "Certainly could get interesting…"
[08:34:19] WO1 Summerwind: Oh shnap, Mama Bear all up in this bitch.
[08:34:34] WO1 Summerwind: Erm, I mean, romm attenhut!
[08:34:44] Capt. Komillia Maeless packs a Devo with two HLC-40s and two GU-21 Recoiless.
[08:35:54] WO Febrith Nyx mounts up in a Super Cyc with 2 M90Lite.
[08:36:49] Cpt. Aylanea waves off Summerwind. "Relax…"
[08:37:16] LtJG Silver: (( ill prob be a better shot w/ the light weasle then the M90L lol ))
[08:37:28] LtJG Silver: (( well i know i will ^_^ ))
[08:37:54] Cpt. Aylanea: "I'm just here in case we need to make a trench run or hit a small exhaust port beneath the main one." She grins. "Or somethin like that."
[08:38:34] LtJG Silver: " it must have been a good movie " commenting on the refrences " Anyone have a copy? "
[08:38:58] WO1 Summerwind has the HRG railgun, a M-90C with underslung shotty and a M-307/312 as a backup
[08:39:40] Cpt. Aylanea: "Should be one around somewhere I'd think, considering how popular the original trilogy was."
[08:39:45] GM: A cuple of tech poke fun at Anji, joking that her weapons are bigger then she is…
[08:41:03] GM: Okay, anything else you might need?
[08:42:43] Capt Kain Crockett: ((Trying to go through the explosives))
[08:43:12] Capt Kain Crockett packs as much of whatever the RT equivalent of C4 is…
[08:43:32] GM: Fair nuff
[08:43:48] Capt Kain Crockett packs as much of that suff as he can, even putting sum in the cargo of the Devo.
[08:44:08] Cpt. Aylanea makes sure to pack M90C clips
[08:44:20] 2Lt. Sarah makes sure to pack plenty of clips as well.
[08:45:11] Capt Kain Crockett: "Grab soem explosives, data drives or additional stuff to send the shield generator to hell and back six times."
[08:46:11] LtJG Silver does so asking the ordancemen to load some cargo boxes packed with high explosives on board his cyclone (since he has room for 3 of them :P )
[08:46:24] LtJG Silver: ( idk what all yall's are carrying lol )
[08:47:20] 2Lt. Sarah has the ordinance people load the cargo boxes not loaded with clips and/or the standard survival pack, with explosives, and even cram as many as will fit with the clips and other as well, just so the clips are reachable.
[08:48:15] Cpt. Aylanea: "Some of us can carry them but not set them off, explosiveswise."
[08:49:08] LtJG Silver: " i can carry but i dont know about setting them. I'm afraid i assumed one of you had explosive expertise. I can follow instruction to the letter in helping to set up and set off "
[08:49:27] 2Lt. Sarah: "Same for me."
[08:49:50] Capt Kain Crockett: "
[08:49:56] LtJG Silver: (( no DOD or SEAL among us? ))
[08:50:13] Capt Kain Crockett: "The explosive should be innert until an electrical charge runs through a blasting cap. You'll be safe."
[08:50:22] Capt Kain Crockett: ((Kain is Spec Ops.))
[08:50:53] 2Lt. Sarah: "I at least figured that. Just a matter of you having to set them all up, or someone else qualified."
[08:51:26] LtJG Silver nods " yes, but if we dont set them up correctly we may just cause allot of damage and fail to complete our objective. Is there any way to have a demo expert assigned to us for this mission? "
[08:52:14] GM: You grab all your gear and are loaded onto a pair of local biover trucks. and begin the journey towards your target, it takes a few days, avoid the main roads, and pirate patrols. The mountians the Keep is located in get closer as the tempurature drops as you climb in altitude. The trucks, driven by locals, stop in an off the beaten path location near a revine. They point out the direction to the main gate, as well as the town that lies nearby whos populace services the Keep. Of note is the occasianal fly over of pirate mecha, always in pairs, usually Gnerls, but at least one occurance of a triplate of Bioroids (based on formation, a pirate officer with two guards). The fly overs seem concentrated on the main road and other appraoches, but do fly over the 'sticks' once in a while. The area is lighty forested with decent cover, other then that, there are patches of snow on the ground.
[08:54:30] GM: Once dismounted and deployed Anji performs a burst radio hack with the Havoc and the group is given the green light.
[08:56:15] Capt Kain Crockett: "Alright, let's find the door and knock. And I don't mean politely."
[08:58:06] LtJG Silver 's hand is shakey with nervousness " Right I'll Follow your lead sir, " looking over his shoulder at the cargo boxes of explosives sighs and laughs light heartily " Somehow I dont feel choosing to load these was a great idea anymore "
[08:58:37] LtJG Silver: (( light heartedly*))
[08:59:48] GM: Okay, so where do you go etc? Whats the call?
[09:00:20] 2Lt. Sarah smiles to Silver. "Relax, it'll be fine."
[09:01:48] Capt Kain Crockett looks for a good way in to the fortress with the generators. [1d20+1] => [13,1] = (14) Perc, [1d10] =>  = (9) vs 70 RSI, [1d100] =>  = (82) vs 86 ECM (to block up any chance of finding us), [1d100] =>  = (14) vs 71 Intelligence, [1 100] => 1 100 vs 75 Under Cover Ops, [1d100] =>  = (64) vs 65 Detect Ambush, [1d100] =>  = (21) vs 60 Track People
[09:01:59] GM: ((Quick OOG question, since I have everyone here anyway. James, would we be able to swap SW to Friday night next week. I'll be camping out sat night, and since we finished the Rifts thing this friday…
[09:02:08] Capt Kain Crockett: [1d100] =>  = (76) vs 75 under cover ops
[09:03:01] Capt Kain Crockett: ((Sure, I'd have to make sure Jess knows, but most everyone is here, so unless they object…))
[09:03:16] GM: ((well, Maybe camping out sat, just wanna put it out there just in case))
[09:03:24] GM: ((kk))
[09:04:29] LV (enter): 21:04
[09:04:41] LtJG Silver: (got bumped :P )
[09:04:41] 2Lt. Sarah: (( what did you see last? ))
[09:04:51] LtJG Silver: ( what do you do or something 1 sec )
[09:05:11] WO Febrith Nyx keeps her own eyes peeled. [1d20+1] => [14,1] = (15) Perc, [1d100] =>  = (19) vs 53 RSI, [1d100] =>  = (14) vs 63 Intelligence, [1d100] =>  = (80) vs 68 Psychology (to try and figure a probable "back door" based on normal Tirolian thinking), [1d100] =>  = (20) vs 73 Navigation
[09:05:15] LtJG Silver: (3) GM: Okay, so where do you go etc? Whats the call?
[09:05:38] 2Lt. Sarah: (( copypasted to AIM with the rest ))
[09:05:40] GM: Okay, Kain, you are able to spot a few options, a back door with guards, or furhter up the rock face there is a 'boarded' over (with 300 years worth of terrain accumulation) mecha launch door.
[09:06:39] Capt Kain Crockett: ((Can we clear the mecha launch door easily?))
[09:06:47] LtJG Silver: (( cool and im good with friday if everyone else is ))
[09:07:12] GM: Thats up to you and how you do it.
[09:07:44] GM: But first you have to get there
[09:07:56] GM: I said rock face didnt I,?
[09:08:54] Capt Kain Crockett: ((I was more concerned with it being a viable option before worrying about getting up there…))
[09:10:33] GM: Well?
[09:10:53] GM: You wont really know until you get a better look.
[09:13:01] GM: it's about 800 ft up, next to a thicket of trees.
[09:13:04] Capt Kain Crockett: ((checking who has climbing, and the rest of you can pipe up too…))
[09:13:14] 2Lt. Sarah: (( heh. ))
[09:13:23] 2Lt. Sarah: (( don't have climbing, but well… ))
[09:13:38] LtJG Silver: ( i do i think let me check )
[09:13:52] GM: (( bashes head on desk at Sarahs comment))
[09:14:15] 2Lt. Sarah: (( what? Yes, that's the 'but well' ))
[09:14:26] LtJG Silver: (( climbing 65/55% ))
[09:14:29] LtJG Silver: (( ^_^ ))
[09:14:35] 2Lt. Sarah: (( get a good peek with binocs, and tport right up to it. ))
[09:14:49] LtJG Silver: (( LMAO ))
[09:14:53] LtJG Silver: (( cheater :P ))
[09:14:56] LtJG Silver: (( ^_^ ))
[09:15:01] 2Lt. Sarah: (( did you think I hadn' tthought of that or somethin? ))
[09:15:03] 2Lt. Sarah: (( lol ))
[09:15:14] GM: ((yes, the thought had crossed my mind))
[09:15:20] 2Lt. Sarah: (( rofl ))
[09:15:29] LtJG Silver: (( ^_^ ))
[09:15:44] 2Lt. Sarah: (( and Ay has climbing at max level, so. ))
[09:16:10] LtJG Silver: (( though in cyclones i think we can jump and hoover up to 100ft in the air i cant remember :P but that would make climbing easier just a thought :P ))
[09:16:26] 2Lt. Sarah: (( if we use cyclone thrusters, the guards at the back will notice. ))
[09:16:41] 2Lt. Sarah: (( and we might hit trees a lil too hard, and break branches we need to be catching. ))
[09:16:55] 2Lt. Sarah: (( hrm ))
[09:16:55] Capt Kain Crockett: "Sarah, teleport up there and take good look at the door and tell us if we can force it open, quietly prefereably."
[09:18:00] 2Lt. Sarah: (( Sarah's max capacity is 5 people, so two on cyclones is four worth of weight ))
[09:19:13] 2Lt. Sarah nods and takes a peek up at the place quickly. "Right… Remember though, whatever way we do, the debris might fall down, or fall in." She makes the jump on that comment. [1d100] =>  = (71) (vs. 99%, visible location)
[09:19:34] GM: Your ears pop as you materalize
[09:19:49] Capt Kain Crockett: ((I only wnated her to take a peek, not be the mode of transport.))
[09:20:05] GM: You are on a very tiny landing created by some of the trees roots.
[09:20:06] 2Lt. Sarah: (( aww, k ))
[09:20:08] 2Lt. Sarah: (( lol ))
[09:20:15] LtJG Silver: (( lol ))
[09:20:38] 2Lt. Sarah peeks at the landing, gulping slightly. After she swears in english and opteran from her ears popping.
[09:21:16] 2Lt. Sarah: [1d20+1] => [17,1] = (18) perc
[09:21:24] 2Lt. Sarah peeks at the door, promptly, to see,.
[09:21:46] GM: the roots are gnarled, and the trees are off to teh side of the bay door, which you can see is rusted as well covered in dirt and rock.
[09:22:15] GM: You notice some of the same rust coloring behind the trees as well as to the far side of the larger door.
[09:22:58] GM: ((Two circles some 40 foot in daimeter flanking a hexagonal bay door 150 foot across))
[09:23:19] GM: the trees are at the base of the circle on the right side of the bay
[09:23:56] 2Lt. Sarah tries to carefully hold onto the trees, and look at one of the smaller ports to see if she can see anything of it. [1d20+1] => [19,1] = (20) perc
[09:25:14] 2Lt. Sarah: "The big one is too big…"
[09:26:49] GM: The smaller port you are in front off as buckling on the metal becase of the roots.
[09:28:16] 2Lt. Sarah: "Someone will for sure notice, looking at one of the smaller ones now, 40 foot diameter, plenty big for us. The smaller one is buckling from tree roots as well…" She hmms, and looks to see if it's totally buckled in. "Might make it easier to get open, in theory."
[09:29:00] Capt Kain Crockett: "So call it Sarah, can we get through there or not?"
[09:29:04] 2Lt. Sarah: [1d20+1] => [3,1] = (4) perc, [1d30] =>  = (14) vs. 18 IQ, [1d100] =>  = (50) detect concealment vs. 80%
[09:30:21] GM: Well, it's possible to get in, you would have to cut away some of the roots, you figure the metal is rusted solid by this point that it wont slide back into place.
[09:30:40] 2Lt. Sarah: "If we can cut the roots, yeah."
[09:32:20] 2Lt. Sarah: "There's still a matter of getting around the guards, unless I try to squeeze my way in and take people in two by two in the Cycs.
[09:32:27] Capt Kain Crockett: "Well start getting at it, the rest of us will climb up to meet you."
[09:32:40] Capt Kain Crockett: "Alright, start climbing people."
[09:33:13] 2Lt. Sarah: "Okay, will work on it." She grabs on, and tries to use the Cyclone's strength rating to move the tree roots if she can, or break through them.
[09:34:11] 2Lt. Sarah: (( augmented str 29 :p ))

[09:38:11] GM: With that fail you land on Kain in a suggestive manner, panty to faceplate
[09:38:14] 2Lt. Sarah sighs, sticks one of her M90Cs' barrel right to the root to muffle it if she can. "Remind me to bring a silencer next time."
[09:38:50] 2Lt. Sarah: "Short o fshooting the roots, we need the Devo to tear through them."
[09:39:06] WO1 Summerwind clicks a picture of Kain and Nyx

[09:39:27] Cpt. Aylanea glances back and gigglesnorts at Kain and Nyx.
[09:39:36] Capt. Komillia Maeless gets up to the top and tries to help clear the roots.

[09:40:29] Capt Kain Crockett: [1d100] =>  = (94) vs 90 Climbing
[09:40:32] Capt Kain Crockett: [1d100] =>  = (90) vs 80 Climbing
[09:40:48] Capt. Komillia Maeless: [1d100] =>  = (91) vs 90 Climbing
[09:40:51] Capt. Komillia Maeless: [1d100] =>  = (12) vs 90 Climbing
[09:41:03] WO1 Summerwind: Maybe someone who is up there can drop a rope
[09:41:06] WO1 Summerwind: Hmm?
[09:41:36] Capt Kain Crockett: "Amdahl, do you have a rope to throw down?"
[09:42:02] WO1 Summerwind continues to film the climbing hijinx
[09:42:33] GM: Komi one more roll
[09:42:37] 2Lt. Sarah: "I'll check, there's one in the survival pack I think, but I'm not sure it'll hold a Cyclone."
[09:42:53] Cpt. Aylanea: [1d100] =>  = (1) vs. 98%
[09:42:54] Capt. Komillia Maeless: [1d100] =>  = (97) vs 90 Climbing
[09:43:08] Capt. Komillia Maeless: ((I'm going to KILL the RNG…))
[09:43:29] GM: KOmi makes backwards progress, Devos are all that good at climbing it seems, Ay is doing well, one more roll for her
[09:43:38] Cpt. Aylanea: [1d100] =>  = (8) vs. 98%
[09:43:45] GM: Ay is at the top next to Sarah
[09:43:51] LtJG Silver: (( O.O ))
[09:43:52] GM: Komi, two more rolls,
[09:44:25] GM: Meanwhile Anji takes a series of 'up the kilt' shots as Ay climbs
[09:44:38] LtJG Silver: LMAO
[09:44:46] Cpt. Aylanea: (( lol, they're in cyclones, not much to see ;) ))
[09:45:00] GM: ((you'd think that wouldnt you))
[09:45:23] GM: ((nice lil undertoe giggity))
[09:46:00] LtJG Silver comments out load not realizing it " I thought marines were suppose to be use to this sort of thing… "
[09:46:01] 2Lt. Sarah digs out her rope, checks it for weight rating quickly before lowering it.
[09:46:34] GM: James, two rolls for Komi (let me handle them on at a time so I dont get innundated with dice))
[09:47:28] WO1 Summerwind: You'd think that wouldnt you. Normally you send up the climber, they send down the rope. It makes things so much easier. As for the mecha, we'll prolly have to hoist them up once we get in.
[09:47:39] WO1 Summerwind shurgs
[09:47:44] Capt. Komillia Maeless: [1d100] =>  = (22) vs 90 Climbing
[09:47:58] WO1 Summerwind: Thats why you dont see ME making an ass off myself trying to scale that shit.
[09:48:01] Capt. Komillia Maeless: [1d100] =>  = (91) vs 90 Climbing
[09:48:20] 2Lt. Sarah tosses the rope down then, shrugging. "Well, Captain Madresa seemed to do fine with the climbing…"
[09:48:52] LtJG Silver blinks "oh " frowning " sorry i didnt realize that i was speaking out load mam… oh right rope" following sarahs lead sends down his rope (we can double up to support the weight if we have to should hold :P )
[09:48:53] WO1 Summerwind: Hey Komi! might wanna just come back down, let the two up there clear it, or else there aint gonna be room! Your devo is fat fat fat, uyeah I said it, your fat!
[09:49:35] Capt. Komillia Maeless slides back down.
[09:49:39] LtJG Silver chuckles a little at summer
[09:49:45] 2Lt. Sarah: "If she scratches her armpits, I'll be looking for a banana to give her. And, uh, were you listening earlier, Anji? We need the devo to get the roots broken off quietly, or they'll have to be shot off. And that may alert someone." She sighs.
[09:50:06] WO1 Summerwind: Its called a knifr dumbass, I mean LT.
[09:50:18] WO1 Summerwind: ((knife))
[09:50:43] WO1 Summerwind: Or why dont you use your amazing super powers!
[09:51:20] WO1 Summerwind: You know, like, maybe you can frig the tree retarded
[09:51:21] 2Lt. Sarah digs through the kit, finds a saw wire, starts working.
[09:52:50] LtJG Silver sending down the rope(s) for whomever needs them making sure thier ancored to the tree " if need be we can hoist the devo's if their too heavy using more then one rope "
[09:53:15] 2Lt. Sarah: "When I find out how you heard about that, someone is gonna have an unpleasant day." She grabs one of the branches and tries to run an energy blast through it, trying to keep doing so however many times, glowing like a lantern bulb as she does. "Been a while since I did any of that, almost forgot." She blushes olive slightly.
[09:53:34] WO1 Summerwind snorts
[09:53:44] WO1 Summerwind: Honey, who HASNT heard about that!
[09:54:29] GM: Sarah you burn away the roots enough to create a crawl space about [1d12+6] => [4,6] = (10) ft wide
[09:55:04] GM: With that size, you can easily crawl thru and if needs be, box up the cycs and haul them up and stuff em thru.
[09:55:20] GM: The Devo's that might take some more work.
[09:55:57] LtJG Silver: " we can at least get out of the way and make room for the Devo maybe they can finish clearing it
[09:55:59] LtJG Silver: "
[09:56:30] Cpt. Aylanea digs out her own rope, getting it ready as well.
[09:56:43] Capt. Komillia Maeless crawls through, at 6 feet wide and 6 feet in lenght, going through on hands and knees is no problem.
[09:56:51] GM: Actually, the devos should fit, just gonna be a bitch, anyway [1d4] =>  = (1) hours with a few enemy rolls to see if they notice this all going on [4d100] => [72,81,42,50] = (245)
[09:57:02] 2Lt. Sarah: "I'd offer to try getting it in myself, but it's way too heavy."
[09:57:08] GM: Nope, one hour, and you didnt get seen
[09:57:28] GM: You are up an in now, I am done torturing you
[09:58:26] GM: The are you are in used to be a slide out gun turret for a zent soldier to sit in to cover exiting Gnerls. The are up here is dark, dank, and Zent sized.
[09:58:43] 2Lt. Sarah: (( actually, I'm a double dumbass on that one, not only that, but there are saw wires in the pack :p ))
[09:58:52] 2Lt. Sarah: (( and I looked right at the entry. oops ))
[10:00:51] GM: I just thought it funny that when it could have come in real handy, Komi leaves the sabre cyclone at home.
[10:01:02] 2Lt. Sarah: (( rofl! ))
[10:01:14] 2Lt. Sarah: (( Sarah was gonna ask if anyone had a 40 series, then remembered no one did ))
[10:01:22] GM: That and no one else but her carries a blade…
[10:01:37] 2Lt. Sarah: (( there's a knife in the survival kit ))
[10:01:41] 2Lt. Sarah: (( and saw wires ))
[10:01:55] GM: Anyhow, you are in.
[10:02:11] Capt. Komillia Maeless: ((You know, the Garland in Megazone had a lightsaber in one of the parts, or was that a Hargun?))
[10:02:42] 2Lt. Sarah: (( actually, the pack has a small hatchet as well as survival knife ))
[10:02:44] 2Lt. Sarah: (( lol ))
[10:02:49] GM: Hargun I think, military version, well, Garland as well, was the MODAT that was the prototype
[10:03:23] GM: See Carrie, I wont put you up against an impossible situation, you will.
[10:03:25] Capt Kain Crockett looks for indications on where we are relative to the layout of the base and the fastest (time wise) to get to the shield generators to blow them all to kingdom come.

[10:05:51] GM: Kain, this area hasnt been used in decades. The generators will be in and down. This will likely dump into a hanger bay, which you figure might be occupied, or at least known about. That would in turn lead to the Zent pilot storage/quarters. Above that would be the Tirolian quarters and acess to the elevator leading to the generator room
[10:07:48] 2Lt. Sarah peeks around for power signatures or anything else.
[10:08:11] GM: Komi you are able to confirm the bay , when you get to it, is populated by nothing but small vermin
[10:08:33] GM: Nyx, you are able to confirm the route.
[10:08:42] 2Lt. Sarah: [1d20+5] => [4,5] = (9) sense PC, [1d20+1] => [14,1] = (15) perc, [1d100] =>  = (83) rsi vs. 75%, [1d100] =>  = (92) vs. detect concealment 80%,
[10:08:49] 2Lt. Sarah: (( ouch ))
[10:09:00] GM: Sarah, yes, big power source under you. It is active.
[10:10:00] GM: And not in standby mode eaither, it's running at near to peak capacity.
[10:10:21] 2Lt. Sarah: "Wonder what they're powering with the generators. They're running at maximum."
[10:10:27] 2Lt. Sarah: "or close."
[10:10:30] GM: ummm duh
[10:10:48] 2Lt. Sarah: (( nm ))

[10:12:18] 2Lt. Sarah: (( yeah, lol, okay ))
[10:13:40] GM: You enter the bay. It too is dark, and loaded with Gnerls and Battle Pods. You can see that the Gnerls nearest a large set of doors at the far end of the room are no longer in their slots.
[10:14:42] 2Lt. Sarah hmms and peers at the reading. "Wonder how much protoculture they have in storage, unless the pirates are bringing it down from the ships. Probably have to be at this point." She looks up at all the gnerls and pods, and shivers just a little.
[10:14:56] Capt Kain Crockett has the group move toward the shield generator, playing stealth all the way through. As much as we can with big stompy power armor.
[10:15:15] GM: You make it past the zent quarters,
[10:15:24] 2Lt. Sarah: (( yeah, the devo. lol. ))
[10:15:36] GM: which are a mix of statsis tubes and bunks
[10:16:18] GM: A big ass mess hall, with propoganda posters extolling the glorious Zentreadi armada and the masters empire on the wall
[10:17:10] GM: Make some rolls.
[10:17:25] LtJG Silver: " well now, I'm guessing old habbits die hard around here. Its kind of poetic " noting more to himself then anything as he see them

[10:20:54] LtJG Silver: (( sry my rolls were broken up tried to keep together but accedently hit enter :P ))
[10:21:56] GM: You guyes near the Tirolian sized area now, and the activity level increases as this area is actually inhabited. Silver, you notice a service elevator nearby with some piratical types rolling pallets of machinery into it. (the elevator is roughly 40foot square, 10 foot tall.
[10:23:05] GM: Sarah, now that you are further in, you can tell more about the reactor 'the machine spirit is screaming in pain' there are power fluctuations, and the strain the reactor is being placed upon is staggering.
[10:23:43] 2Lt. Sarah blinks at that. "Power fluctuations and the reactor straining. Damn."
[10:24:02] GM: Once this is all pointed out, those that made good intell rolls deduce that the service elevator likley leads to the generators and those are parts and technical crew
[10:24:15] 2Lt. Sarah: (( thermodraft is dying? ;p ))
[10:24:17] 2Lt. Sarah: (( hehe ))
[10:25:00] LtJG Silver tries to stay out of site motioning to the captain over at the elevater

[10:25:44] LtJG Silver: (( it was auto done hehe ty ^_^ ))

[10:26:16] Capt Kain Crockett: "Everyone on to the service elevator, it should take us close to where we need to go."
[10:26:59] 2Lt. Sarah nods. "And don't get seen doing it."
[10:27:09] LtJG Silver: (( sry to much ice age lately :P ))
[10:27:30] LtJG Silver watches for the El to clear so they can move in too use it
[10:27:41] GM: You all hustle onto the service elevator, much to the abject shock and horror to the 15 workers/pirates already on it.
[10:28:22] LtJG Silver: " was thinking it quite possibly has a service access we could use that to traverse it, it would be stealthier then just riding it heaven forbid they see it in use when it shouldnt be or for that matter us not knowing whats at the destination "
[10:28:38] WO1 Summerwind laughs the entire sprint, then skids to a halt hear the door controls. then in Tirolian quips. "Going down?" then hits the button to lower the lift.
[10:28:42] LtJG Silver: (( more a retorical statement that im sure everyone already knows :P ))
[10:29:12] Cpt. Aylanea: (( lol, more funny for 15 workers to be in shock and horror ))
[10:29:48] LtJG Silver: (( i was more concerned about ariving to some heavily guarded section of the ship lol ))
[10:30:21] Cpt. Aylanea: (( especially if it's full of machinery pallets, and we just added 3200 pounds with just the devo, and all our cyclones' weight onto it. ))
[10:30:33] GM: [1d100] =>  = (85) For workers on elevator lower the better, [1d100] =>  = (11) for outside lower means we were noticed hopping onto the lift [1d100] =>  = (66) pirate tactics lower the … more interesting

[10:32:40] GM: ((actually, unless you were born on earth, like, before the zents arrived, you prolly never heard of a muslim extremist

[10:34:15] GM: anyway, totally off topic! moving on, oh, right, 15 pirates on the elevator with you, what do?
[10:34:32] LtJG Silver: (( cant still laughing ))
[10:34:43] LtJG Silver: (( and so yelling that when we see an enemy IC LOL ))

[10:35:19] Cpt. Aylanea: (( oooh! Welch posted 2076-2100 last month! ))
[10:35:38] LtJG Silver: (( wait what how we didnt do anything lol ))
[10:36:06] GM: yes, you did, Kain said move it to the elevator, and you did, and now you are on it, going down, with 15 pirates .
[10:36:12] LtJG Silver: ah nm it was burried damn it lol
[10:36:23] Cpt. Aylanea: (( are they really shocked and horrified? ))
[10:36:43] LtJG Silver: " if anyone tries anytihng i blow this thing sky high so shut up and sit tight "
[10:36:54] Cpt. Aylanea: (( rofl ))
[10:36:55] LtJG Silver: (( j/k ^_^ ))
[10:36:57] Capt Kain Crockett: ((remember that one scene from Star Wars Episode 3 with Obiwan and Anikin on the lift with the droids?))
[10:37:08] GM: Well, lets see, they are un armed and unarmored, and you just came rolling up like the south side crips about to do a hit…yeah, I think they are pretty shocked and horrified.
[10:37:49] LtJG Silver: (( ^_^ ))
[10:37:58] GM: Silver, you belt that out and the pirates back away (as if that would do any good. [1d100] =>  = (24) [1d20] =>  = (3)
[10:38:07] GM: [1d20] =>  = (14)
[10:38:22] Capt Kain Crockett gets on the lift and acts like absolutlely NOTHING out of the ordinary is going on and looks over the Ay, "How many can we take care of before the first one surrenders?"
[10:38:47] GM: There is a loud bang of a shotgun going off and a pirate towards the side of teh room turns into salsa. Anji's underslung shotty barrel is smoking.
[10:39:08] GM: The pirates now all drop to their knees.
[10:39:24] LtJG Silver: (( we're all in the EL right enemys and us? i think theyll sit quiet under threat of me being a "terrifying terrorist" ^_^
[10:39:53] GM: ((A…C…phlegm…))
[10:40:05] LtJG Silver: (( ~_^ ))
[10:40:11] LtJG Silver: (( HEHE !!! ))
[10:40:16] Capt Kain Crockett: "That would be one."
[10:41:06] LtJG Silver hovers his finger over a button on his communicator as if it were a trigger " I dont think they'll cooperate Sir maybe i should just push the button now "
[10:41:09] GM: The elevator takes about 15 minutes to hit the bottom. Do you do anything prior to the end of the ride?
[10:41:15] Capt Kain Crockett looks to the pirates then to Anji, "Ask how many would like to stand trial and get that shot by telling us how many guard the shield generators."
[10:41:37] Capt. Komillia Maeless confiscates any equiipment on them.
[10:42:32] GM: Anji complies and after some yelling and a buttstroke or two she reports that none, just the 30 man tech crew down there trying to keep the reactor running without exploding in theri faces. Apparently the thought of the Havoc floating around out there like the Bad Year Blimp has the leadership so paranoid that they wont turn the shields off.
[10:43:35] LtJG Silver: " no guards though ? "
[10:43:43] GM: S'what I siad
[10:44:39] 2Lt. Sarah shivers at that. "No wonder I noticed power fluctuations. ugh."
[10:45:20] LtJG Silver: " so worried he's going to keep it running and not guard it, that honestly doesnt make much sense to me"
[10:45:31] GM: Komi, all they had on em was tools, and a few knives and pistols.
[10:45:40] 2Lt. Sarah: "Obviously never thought we'd show up here."
[10:45:52] WO1 Summerwind: We're sneaky like that.
[10:46:11] WO1 Summerwind: Or at least, never thought we'd get in without using the main gate.
[10:46:30] Capt. Komillia Maeless takes the knives and pistols and then proceeds to KO as many as possible.
[10:46:39] WO1 Summerwind: Probobly strip searching every one coming in.
[10:47:00] GM: Bonk bonk bonk…they all go out.
[10:47:49] WO Febrith Nyx: "
[10:47:57] WO Febrith Nyx: "This job just got easier."
[10:47:58] GM: You get to the bottom and the door opens up to reveal a tech with a look of relief on his face. "Thank D'var, we need those part….oh fffff…." the look or relief turns to sheer terror.
[10:51:24] WO Febrith Nyx: "Hi, you need to drink more fluids."
[10:51:40] LtJG Silver frowns unsure if thats the truth aiming his SMG at the tech giving the universal shhh sign for them to quiet up and listen
[10:52:30] GM: roll intimdate
[10:54:10] LtJG Silver: [1d100] =>  = (6) vs 54% Intimidate :P
[10:54:15] 2Lt. Sarah: (( LOL ))
