Chapter 6 - Act II - Part 3


[07:43:07] GM: Deep within the Phoenix the ground team is escorted to a meeting with Elder Tirolians within a gardenlike section of the ships hull.
[07:44:29] GM: Flanking them are a quartet of Green Bioroids, behind them floats a Triumveroid and ahead are a trio of masters atop a floating predestle. A few other Tirolians can be seen here and there on teh ground, watching.
[07:44:55] Elder Kronon: Welcome…
[07:45:02] Elder Nirios: …to our…
[07:45:10] Elder Yras: …home.
[07:45:58] Elder Nirios: We know…
[07:46:09] Elder Yras: …why you…
[07:46:19] Elder Kronon: …are here.
[07:46:55] GM: ((Okay, thats going to be more annoying then i thought…))
[07:46:56] Gage watches the event unfold, definitely feels wierd
[07:47:01] GM: ((You get the idea tho))
[07:48:12] Elder Kronon: I am Kronon, my brothers, Nirios, and Yras.
[07:48:58] Jess: (are we out of our mechs?
[07:49:06] GM: ((Pronounces Kro Non, Nee ree oohs and Yeers
[07:49:17] GM: You are still within your mecha
[07:50:04] Lt. Fallnya: "I am Lt. Fallnya, and why do you think we are hear." *booming over her loudspeaker
[07:51:32] Elder Yras: You hunt the Haydonites within the hull.
[07:52:16] Lt. Fallnya: "Well then, might i ask why we have been stoped from doing so unless you know where they are?"
[07:53:23] Elder Nirios: You have not been barred from your duties
[07:53:42] Elder Kronon: You have been escoted through our outer realm
[07:54:27] Elder Yras: We can of course, take you back to where we found you…
[07:54:40] Elder Kronon: …and let you pick your way…
[07:54:55] Elder Kronon: …thru the forest.
[07:55:17] GM: Around you a few Tirolians snicker
[07:56:26] Gage looks to Lurana
[07:56:29] LCpl Summerwind whispers to Gage.
[07:56:48] LCpl Summerwind: Snarky old cuss, er, cusses. Would that be cussi?
[07:57:37] CWO2 Sarah: (( heeheehee ))
[07:58:27] LCpl Summerwind: I hope I grow up to be just like that!
[07:58:31] LCpl Summerwind seems to mean that.
[07:59:57] GM: Lu?
[08:00:33] Gage smirks "I would be bet Anji and would love to see it"
[08:02:09] Lt. Fallnya: "We will take your offer, (sorry having trouble focusing with my tummy
[08:02:18] GM: ((fair enough))
[08:02:41] Elder Nirios: The Haydonites are not…
[08:02:51] Elder Yras: …far from this place.
[08:03:08] Elder Kronon: We have spotted them…
[08:03:26] Elder Nirios: …near the Resivior and the…
[08:03:30] Lt. Fallnya: "They havent attacked you then?"
[08:03:37] Elder Yras: …Great Conduits.
[08:04:09] Elder Nirios: A pair came this way.
[08:04:12] Elder Nirios waves his hand
[08:04:28] Lt. Fallnya looks with her cameras where he points or waves
[08:04:46] GM: A Green bioroid approaches and tosses two shot to hell Reavers at your feet like so much refuse.
[08:05:18] LCpl Summerwind claps her hands rapidly
[08:05:24] LCpl Summerwind: Oooo I like these guys!
[08:06:09] Gage smiles and nods "Nice."
[08:06:45] Lt. Fallnya: "Scan them make sure there not transmitting any thing LCpl
[08:06:52] Lt. Fallnya: and i mean any thing and jam it"
[08:07:00] LCpl Summerwind: Roger that!
[08:07:03] LCpl Summerwind: [1d100] => [66] = (66)
[08:07:14] LCpl Summerwind: They're cold ma'am.
[08:08:26] LCpl Summerwind: At least…I think they are.
[08:08:37] LCpl Summerwind pokes at her sensor array.
[08:08:39] Lt. Fallnya: "good"
[08:08:46] LCpl Summerwind: [1d100] => [69] = (69)
[08:09:07] LCpl Summerwind: Whoa, um, wrong channel…ehehe sorry. Skinimax.
[08:09:32] LCpl Summerwind: [1d100] => [43] = (43)
[08:09:34] Lt. Fallnya: "Can your scouts show us where they are and we can take out the rest, and possibly give us an idea on the numbers you have seen?
[08:09:44] LCpl Summerwind: Okay, that got it, yeah, they're cold.
[08:09:51] CWO2 Sarah: (( rotfl. ))
[08:10:22] Elder Nirios: The Triumveroid will guide you
[08:11:15] Triumveroid bobs up and down
[08:13:26] Lt. Fallnya: "I assume as per it being your territory you are going to suport us? Might help keep damage down if we have extra help."
[08:13:34] Gage prepares to follow
[08:14:06] Elder Kronon: We project no power becuase we have none to project.
[08:14:31] Elder Yras: These are our sentinals, they will not leave.
[08:14:37] Elder Yras points to the Bioroids.
[08:15:15] James: (())AFK
[08:16:22] Lt. Fallnya: "Allright, Lead the way then triumverent."
[08:16:37] Triumveroid: Vmmmmm
[08:16:58] Triumveroid floats ahead of you a ways, then hovers, waiting.
[08:17:22] Gage takes point
[08:18:10] GM: You travel for some hours thru the catacombs of the massive ship, it seems you are traveling further aft and further below decks.
[08:18:52] GM: The area of the ship here is more ancient then above, having been the part of the ship built first.
[08:19:49] GM: Massive pipes some almost a football field length around run foreard to aft.
[08:19:57] GM: ((forward))
[08:21:08] Triumveroid emits some noises which your mecha reads as radio transmission, and text scrolls across your screens.
[08:21:19] Triumveroid: This is part of the original Fold Drives.
[08:22:01] Triumveroid: Monopole Ore was vaporized and shunted through these conduits. Others were used for cooling.
[08:22:51] Triumveroid: The Resiovior is ahead, one of the 200 original coolent containment vessels.
[08:25:37] GM: ((pic is a basic cross sesction, that lil dot is the size of your Mecha
[08:26:48] GM: ((anyway lol))
[08:26:54] GM: ((it's big))
[08:28:45] GM: The Resivior is about a 1/4 mile away
[08:29:02] Gage: (k)
[08:29:25] Lt. Fallnya: "Allright, Deployment standard spread of firepower with clear fields of fire, we dont need any friendly fire."
[08:29:42] Lt. Fallnya: [1d100] => [93] = (93) vs
[08:29:51] LCpl Summerwind: Roger that.
[08:29:51] Lt. Fallnya: (nvm big fail on tactics rl
[08:30:00] GM: doh
[08:30:07] Gage moves out "Roger"
[08:30:32] Lt. Fallnya takes the center as shes the big tank without our tank around seeing he got lost?
[08:30:38] Lt. Fallnya: (unless hes being npced
[08:30:58] GM: ((he'll be there if you need him))
[08:31:35] GM: Okay, yall move up, how?
[08:32:19] Gage is ahead of the Lt and to the right.
[08:32:49] LCpl Summerwind is gonna try and move all quiet like. Prowl [1d100] => [49] = (49) vs 40%
[08:33:35] Lt. Fallnya tries to moe slowly keeping an eye on her scanners
[08:34:31] Haydonite: Perc [1d20+4] => [6,4] = (10) RSI [1d100] => [72] = (72) vs 80%
[08:35:05] Haydonite: Prowl [1d100] => [50] = (50) vs 65%
[08:35:32] GM: You continue to move forward, slowly.
[08:35:53] Lt. Fallnya: [1d20] => [20] = (20) perc
[08:36:05] Lt. Fallnya: [1d100] => [25] = (25) vs RSI i belive its 65%
[08:36:07] Lt. Fallnya: lemme look
[08:36:07] GM: You can feel the presence of the dark side
[08:36:19] CWO2 Sarah: (( lol ))
[08:37:25] Gage looks around as well, occassionally are sensors (perception [1d20+2] => [12,2] = (14); sensory [1d100] => [11] = (11) vs 50)
[08:38:01] LCpl Summerwind: RSI [1d100] => [98] = (98) vs 55%
[08:38:17] LCpl Summerwind: Perc [1d20] => [19] = (19)
[08:38:46] LCpl Summerwind: I think I saw something! But my sesnors are all fucked up!
[08:39:48] GM: Lu, you hear, see, sense, something out there, and your sensors catch some movememnt ahead of you, in the rafters. Gage, your sensors tell you the same thing.
[08:40:31] Lt. Fallnya: "We got Company."
[08:40:31] Gage brings weapon to the ready
[08:40:42] Gage: "Roger that ma'am"
[08:40:44] GM: ((For note, you both see if first, on scanners, I was just getting all of Anji's typing done at once))
[08:40:47] Lt. Fallnya halts switching vision modes to scan for signatures
[08:41:15] GM: What mode?
[08:43:27] Haydonite: Prowl [1d100] => [13] = (13) vs 65
[08:43:45] Lt. Fallnya: thermal
[08:44:10] GM: Roll RSI
[08:44:21] Lt. Fallnya: [1d100] => [87] = (87) vs 63%
[08:44:23] Lt. Fallnya: fail
[08:44:57] GM: You are unable to get a thermal fix, either the lil one have 4th Dimensional Cloaking too, or the toaster has hidden himself very very well.
[08:46:03] LCpl Summerwind: Whats the call ma'am? I got nuthin!
[08:46:16] LCpl Summerwind swings her weapon back and forth, looking for the enemy.
[08:46:25] Gage checks sensors again then glances about "definitely on the defensive; maybe ambush" (perception [1d20+2] => [13,2] = (15); detect ambush [1d100] => [84] = (84) vs 50; sensors [1d100] => [44] = (44) vs 50)
[08:47:46] Lt. Fallnya: "I dont like it, triple red move up with extream caution weapons free if it looks haydon
[08:47:54] GM: Gage, you have an idea where he might be, and that could be anywhere. (DA) Your sensors fail to tell you anything conclusive, but you hear a noise, but with all the conduits, the sound echos such that you cant get a decent fix, although, you KNOW somthing is out there.
[08:48:12] GM: ((Triple Red?))
[08:48:56] Lt. Fallnya: (triple red, its a term that means high alert)
[08:49:25] GM: You move up slowly, the only sounds in your ears are the light humming of your systems, your breathing, and your heartbeats.
[08:49:58] Lt. Fallnya: [1d100] => [13] = (13) vs 63%
[08:50:02] Haydonite: Oh…who will I shoot at first?
[08:50:02] Lt. Fallnya: [1d20] => [16] = (16)
[08:50:02] Gage relays "Alot of echoes here. But did have something a moment ago."
[08:50:20] Lt. Fallnya: RSI and perc
[08:51:23] Gage checks motion sensors ([1d100] => [30] = (30) vs 50)
[08:51:23] GM: Since you and the Haydonite have a tied roll of 13%, roll a d10, you want to get Higher then the Haydonites roll [1d10] => [2] = (2)
[08:51:30] GM: Which, shouldnt be hard
[08:51:50] GM: Roll a 1, rolla 1!
[08:51:54] GM: lol
[08:52:15] GM: if it's a tie we reroll
[08:52:45] GM: d10 jess, roll it
[08:53:20] Lt. Fallnya: [1d10] => [8] = (8)
[08:53:30] Lt. Fallnya: is that bad?
[08:53:34] GM: Okay, you win, which means this goes to initiative,
[08:53:41] GM: Jess only
[08:53:55] Haydonite: Init [1d20+6] => [11,6] = (17)
[08:54:55] GM: Jess?
[08:54:57] Lt. Fallnya: "Target, ive spotted him." *Raises her weapon [1d20+5 ] => [11,5] = (16)i think
[08:55:08] GM: kk, enemy has init
[08:55:22] Lt. Fallnya: (lol god dam but i get first shot unless he takes it
[08:55:57] Haydonite: Ah hell, those humans cant shoot, I take my shot at the Radio
[08:56:20] Haydonite: [1d20+6] => [8,6] = (14)
[08:56:37] Haydonite: [1d4*10+15] => 45
[08:57:00] Haydonite: [1d20] => [14] = (14)
[08:58:14] Jess (enter): 20:58
[08:58:24] Lt. Fallnya: sory got disconnected
[08:58:46] GM: A flurry of cannon fire lances out and catches Anji's trusters/tires shearing both off, miraculously, none of the shots hit her dome.
[08:59:08] GM: Your attack Lu, Anji and Gage, roll Init
[08:59:35] LCpl Summerwind: [1d20+2] => [19,2] = (21)
[08:59:44] Lt. Fallnya fires her recoiless [1d20
[09:00:16] Lt. Fallnya fires her recoiless [1d20+10] => [4,10] = (14)
[09:00:20] Attempting to assign the role of Player to (1678) Jess…
[09:00:37] Haydonite: [1d20+6] => [18,6] = (24)
[09:00:57] Haydonite: I was right, they really cant shoot.
[09:00:57] Gage: [1d20+5] => [2,5] = (7)
[09:02:03] Haydonite: Okay, Init order is, Anji, H, Lu, and gage
[09:02:56] LCpl Summerwind blinks and lifts her rail gun up and fires up towards the source of the enemy fire.
[09:02:57] Gage: (isnt it reversed?)
[09:03:14] GM: You are correct!
[09:03:18] GM: I was just testing you
[09:03:20] GM: yeah,
[09:03:22] GM: thats it
[09:03:24] GM: testing you
[09:03:33] GM makes shifty eyes
[09:03:53] GM: the REAL init order is. Gage, Lu, H, and then Anji, pending inturrupts
[09:03:58] No match found
[09:04:44] GM: Do it to it Gage!
[09:05:45] Gage tries to fire back in the location of where the shot came from (to strike [1d20+8] => [16,8] = (24), dmg [2d6+4] => [4,1,4] = (9)MD)
[09:06:20] GM: The Haydonite willmove to avoid the shot, ducking behind the large conduit it was hiding upon
[09:06:28] GM: [1d20+6] => [7,6] = (13)
[09:06:50] GM: But you catch it just as it disappears behind the obstruction, and hit it in the [1d100] => [63] = (63)
[09:07:01] GM: Main body
[09:07:23] GM: Lu it is your turn, the enemy has moved behind cover
[09:07:30] Gage relays location to others "But has cover….could move"
[09:07:46] Lt. Fallnya tries to arch the grenade over the cover [1d20+10] => [4,10] = (14)
[09:07:58] Lt. Fallnya: (jee looks like my rolls have went to crap
[09:08:06] GM: You grenade lobs up, thinks off a pipe and then goes boom.
[09:08:13] GM: thinks = tinks
[09:09:22] Haydonite: I gonna swing out from under the pipe and …did that thing just fire a grenade at me? Oh thats it!!! I swing out and leap kick that crap ass mech into the far wall. [1d20+6] => [17,6] = (23)
[09:11:05] GM: Lu, roll a dodge, and I think Anji will Inturrupt and try to hit it mid flight with the pair of missiles on her left arms GR-97 [1d20+2] => [15,2] = (17)
[09:11:41] Lt. Fallnya: [1d20+13] => [15,13] = (28)
[09:12:30] GM: Anji's roll is insufficiant to beat the haydonites strike (her attack being considerd a parry of sorts) However you are able to avoid the attack as Anji's missile sail down the hall and impact some 500 feet away with a dul double whump.
[09:12:46] GM: Gage, your attack
[09:15:17] Gage opens up a burst at the haydonite (to strike [1d20+6] => [20,6] = (26); dmg [2d4*10] => 50MD)
[09:15:32] Gage: (bad day for him)
[09:15:43] GM: Hayontie will try to use Lurana as cover! [1d20+6] => [2,6] = (8)
[09:16:04] GM: 100 pernts to his [1d100] => [14] = (14)
[09:16:33] GM: main body
[09:17:05] GM: Lu, your turn
[09:17:47] GM: Haydonite will inturrupt and grapple you, holding you in front of it [1d20+6] => [11,6] = (17)
[09:19:37] GM: Lu?
[09:20:48] 2Lt. Aylanea: (( *gives Lu a lil lovebite to wake her* ))
[09:22:15] GM: Okay, I will assume she will move to avoid that, and will roll a dodge for her [1d20+12] => [3,12] = (15)
[09:22:45] 2Lt. Aylanea: (( lol ))
[09:22:50] GM: The enemy maintains it's grip and has now placed Lurana between it and you two Anji and gage.
[09:22:58] GM: Anji your turn
[09:23:31] LCpl Summerwind rolls onto her stomach and lines up with the Rail gun
[09:23:35] Lt. Fallnya sits her mech on on the one who tries to use her
[09:24:11] CWO2 Sarah: (( heehee. eep, she lives ))
[09:24:12] GM: make a roll then to supercede mine made in your absence
[09:25:06] Lt. Fallnya: d20?
[09:25:33] GM: yes, it's considered a dodge
[09:25:49] GM: regardless of what you attempt, if you fail the roll, the enemy was able to beat your attempt
[09:25:49] Lt. Fallnya: [1d20+10] => [19,10] = (29) i think
[09:25:55] CWO2 Sarah: (( woot! ))
[09:26:02] GM: well, there you go
[09:26:55] GM: you sit back and the Haydonite, not wishing to humiliation of being sat on by you thrusts backwards and towards the rafters. Anji your shot
[09:27:28] LCpl Summerwind fires at the bastards head, Rail cannon [1d20+2] => [14,2] = (16)
[09:27:42] Haydonite: I hate you most of all!
[09:27:49] Haydonite: [1d20+6] => [19,6] = (25)
[09:27:56] Haydonite: HA!
[09:28:07] GM: Gage, your attack
[09:28:07] Jess (exit): 21:28
[09:28:43] Gage fires a shot, hoping to hit its dome (to strike [1d20+8] => [13,8] = (21) dmg [2d6+4] => [2,3,4] = (9)MD)
[09:29:02] Haydonite: [1d20+6] => [7,6] = (13)
[09:29:24] GM: Your shots hit, but the armor is thick!

[09:30:03] Lt. Fallnya: [1d20+10] => [19,10] = (29)
[09:30:29] Haydonite moves to evade and get behind cover. [1d20+6] => [16,6] = (22)
[09:30:39] Lt. Fallnya: (Seriously i think that would be a crit if it were 1 more level
[09:30:41] GM: Damage.

[09:31:25] Lt. Fallnya: [2d4*10] => 40 3 raid burst
[09:32:26] GM: Your shots hit it's hip, tearing a nice gouge out of it's leg armor. The Haydonite returns fire at Lu, [1d20+6] => [11,6] = (17)
[09:33:25] LCpl Summerwind walks her cannon fire up along the wall and towards the Haydonite. "Get some! Get some!" [1d20+2] => [1,2] = (3)
[09:33:32] CWO2 Sarah: (( LOL ))
[09:33:54] GM: Oh Anji! You wanted to be a badass and thats what you get…
[09:33:59] GM: Roll a dodge Lu
[09:34:39] Lt. Fallnya: [1d20+10] => [6,10] = (16)

[09:35:08] Gage with the Haydonite slightly dazed from the head shot; opens up with another burst (to strik [1d20+6] => [13,6] = (19); dmg [2d4*10] => 20MD…when its my turn; afk a minute)
[09:35:15] GM: Shoulder weapon whatever that may be

[09:37:58] GM: Cannon is hit for 35
[09:38:27] Lt. Fallnya: (like i said you didnt give them an MD capacity for damage
[09:38:54] GM: Haydontie will try and avoid gages hit (I'm using the damage off of the Silverback, 50 for the pod, and 75 for the gun) [1d20+6] => [8,6] = (14)
[09:39:05] GM: Gage hits the [1d100] => [90] = (90)
[09:39:18] GM: main body
[09:40:28] GM: The Reaver is pretty thrashed but still in the fight, it moves to flee laying some cover fire at Lu, on his way out, [1d20+6] => [14,6] = (20) as Anji tries to actually connect, writing her name in the wall with her rail gun in the process [1d20+2] => [6,2] = (8)
[09:40:54] GM: Haydonite will avoid Anji [1d20+6] => [12,6] = (18)

[09:43:27] GM: Dead Reaver bits rain down over everything!
[09:43:36] Lt. Fallnya: [1d20+10] => [10,10] = (20) dodge
[09:43:42] LCpl Summerwind: Fuck! A lil warning next time!
[09:44:19] GM: Attacker won that tie, [1d4*10+15] => 35 to the [1d100] => [29] = (29)
[09:44:40] GM: Mian body
[09:44:48] CWO2 Sarah: (( *rofls at Anji* ))
[09:45:27] LCpl Summerwind stands up and pouts.
[09:45:49] LCpl Summerwind: Bastard blew up my wheels, now I have to walk everywhere. This fucking sucks!
[09:46:11] LCpl Summerwind kicks a bit of Reaver in frustration.
[09:46:32] Lt. Fallnya lifts her up and makes it to where she doesn't have to walk?
[09:46:35] Lt. Fallnya: "Better?"
[09:46:53] LCpl Summerwind nods
[09:46:59] LCpl Summerwind: Uh huh. /pout
[09:47:05] CWO2 Sarah: (( LOL ))
[09:47:16] CWO2 Sarah: (( good one, Lu ))

[09:47:42] GM: In Spaaaaaaaaaace!
[09:47:56] CWO2 Sarah: (( The final frontier… er, wrong show ))
[09:49:06] GM: ((Final joke for the ground portion: Anji to Lee: "Took your sweet time." Lee: "I was pacing myself."
[09:49:48] GM: Yes, wrong show hehe
[09:50:52] 2 LT Komillia: ((wakes up from the coma… What we're on?))
[09:51:18] GM: The massive debris field covers an area roughly 6 to 9 thousand miles in radius, basically a large loosely packed field of various flotsom.
[09:51:45] 2Lt. Aylanea: (( *snugs Komi* yep! ))
[09:52:27] GM: The Yukikaze and Miyuki move in about 1000 or so miles and saddle up to a largish chuck of what used to be a Zentraedi Flagship.
[09:53:16] GM: ((Think that opening scene in TSC where Marcus and Paco, or whatever his name was, hid in that Ikazuchi wreckage))
[09:54:27] GM: The Major calls you all to the ready room.
[09:55:29] 2 LT Komillia strolls into the ready room and takes her customary seat, and makes sure no one put tacks on it.
[09:55:29] Lt. Jaron goes when called
[09:55:54] GM: ((no tacks there Noriko))
[09:57:05] Lt. Fallnya: Disconnecting from server…
[09:57:06] Jess (exit): 21:57
[09:57:15] Maj. Kavashera: Alright, have a seat…um, wheres Amdahl?
[09:57:36] Lt. Ishida looks around, then shrugs.
[09:58:27] CWO2 Sarah: (( sorry, minor parent thing ))
[09:58:50] CWO2 Sarah slips quickly to her seat, along with Aylanea, sitting quietly.
[09:58:51] Lt. Jaron looks to Suki as she shrugs cause they are hardly apart
[09:59:27] CWO2 Sarah: (( grr ))
[09:59:56] Maj. Kavashera: Good work out there, we can, with confidence, scratch one enemy cap ship.
[10:00:34] Maj. Kavashera: That's the good news. Bad news is, the Yuki got the shit all but kicked out of her in the process.
[10:02:04] 2 LT Komillia whispers under her breath, "In other words we barely escaped a double KO."
[10:02:04] Maj. Kavashera: As far as status goes, she can still fight, but she'll look like hell doing it. Cap'n tells me that all but one PPB array is down, so, that's why we are skulking about inside this carcass.
[10:02:28] Maj. Kavashera: You would be correct Maeless.
[10:03:47] Maj. Kavashera: So, while the DC crews fix our ole girl up, the Captain wants us to dumpster dive a bit out here int he trash. See what we can see.
[10:04:30] Lt. Jaron nods
[10:04:35] 2Lt. Aylanea nods just a little bit at that, considering it. "That should be interesting…"
[10:05:25] Maj. Kavashera: Any questions?
[10:05:41] Lt. Ishida raises her…good arm.
[10:05:52] 2 LT Komillia: Anything besides Protoculture and spare cap ship parts we should look for?
[10:06:05] Maj. Kavashera: let me guess. You want to go out and play with the other children don't you?
[10:06:20] Maj. Kavashera: Anything useful to us and the UEEF
[10:07:00] Lt. Ishida blushes slightly and nods 'Hai.'
[10:07:47] Maj. Kavashera: And I suppose if I were to keep you cooped up in the CIC you would harangue me hour in and hour out to go out and play in said trash heap?
[10:08:05] Lt. Jaron smiles
[10:08:09] Lt. Ishida: I can say with confidence…probably.
[10:08:50] GM: oh shit, did she just make a joke?
[10:09:04] Lt. Jaron speaks up "She could go along but Amdahl would have priority in piloting. If you approve sir"
[10:09:16] Lt. Jaron smiles and nods
[10:09:53] Maj. Kavashera nods at Jaron, after rolling his eyes at Ishida's glib attempt at humor.
[10:10:19] CWO2 Sarah nods just a little bit. "Considering none of the ships are ours, how exotic of equipment might be retrofittable if it's potentially useful?" She laughs a little at Suki's answer.
[10:10:35] Maj. Kavashera: Okay, here's the deal, Ishida, you're in the CIC for at least another 24 hours, then, if, and only IF, the doc gives you a thumbs up you can go out and toddle around.
[10:11:07] Lt. Ishida nods with a smile.
[10:11:15] Lt. Ishida: Aye aye sir.
[10:11:33] Maj. Kavashera looks at the rest of you.
[10:11:55] Maj. Kavashera: Well? What are you waiting for? An engraved invitation, get the hell out of here and go find me some garbage I can use!
[10:13:53] 2 LT Komillia grabs a Bioroid of some kind as she doubts her old TF could take a step without falling apart and does the pre-flight checks.
[10:14:12] 2Lt. Aylanea nods quickly. "Yes, sir." She heads for the door quickly and gets to her Alpha.
[10:14:42] Lt. Jaron heads out
[10:14:56] CWO2 Sarah shrugs and heads to her beta, strapping in.
[10:16:59] CWO2 Sarah: (( any chance of asking for anything special for this, or no way since even questions aren't being answered? ))
[10:17:05] GM: You ready your mecha and prep to move out. The bay doors open up and you can see the twisted girders of the Zent Flagship, a pair of Spiderbugs float past, their work lights blinking. Exiting the Yukikaze you can see the Miyuki close at hand, a Rabbit shuttle leaving her bay heading towards the Yuki. various mecha flit about, and you can see a detail of about twenty Bioroids from the Miyuki move up into the shell of the Flagship and start to poke around.
[10:17:18] GM: Depends on what you ask for
[10:17:36] CWO2 Sarah: (( uh, a space model Cyclone most likely, for places the Beta won't fit. ))
[10:17:52] CWO2 Sarah: (( if they're avail ))
[10:17:59] GM: Sure, you can have one of those, in lieu of your regular cyclone.
[10:18:06] CWO2 Sarah: (( yeah ))
[10:18:12] CWO2 Sarah: (( s'what I mean ))
[10:18:19] CWO2 Sarah: (( mkay ))
[10:19:07] Lt. Jaron radios "Lets do a fly around first; then find a nice opening for us"
[10:19:25] 2 LT Komillia: "Roger."
[10:20:26] CWO2 Sarah nods quick. "Roger that."
[10:21:05] GM: Define "fly around"
[10:21:18] Lt. Jaron: (around the ship)
[10:21:31] GM: Fly around the ahh okay…
[10:21:37] 2 LT Komillia launches out of the bay, once cleared by flight control, and start peering out at the scrap heap. [1d20] => [13] = (13) PERC [1d100] => [64] = (64) vs 60 Sensory Equipment. ((looking for anything, especially things that look like weapons and reflex furnaces))
[10:22:44] GM: Komi, your sensors are fouled mainly because there is so much crap everywhere, it can be fine tuned but for the immediate time being, your sensors basically saw everything and said "FUCK IT!'
[10:24:00] GM: As for weapons and engines, you can see a few larger chunks nearby of ships with their ass ends intact.
[10:24:49] CWO2 Sarah flies out as well, peering at the scrap heap herself and trying to adjust her own sensors, as well as look for anything interesting. [1d20+1] => [17,1] = (18) perc, [1d100] => [9] = (9) vs. 65% sensor for me
[10:25:27] 2Lt. Aylanea looks around for hers as well, considering the situation even as she does it. [1d20] => [19] = (19) [1d100] => [70] = (70) vs. 68%
[10:26:31] 2 LT Komillia: "I'd like to recommend the sections with the engines that look kinda intact. They would likely have protoculture and maybe even extra parts."
[10:27:01] Lt. Jaron watches sensors as they do the fly about before eyeballing (sensor [1d100] => [28] = (28) vs 65; perception [1d20+2] => [8,2] = (10))
[10:27:04] CWO2 Sarah hmms. "So how are we going about this? Sticking together, or should we split up some? Three different groups worth of ships, should we split up at all for the ones who can read the other languages?"
[10:28:11] GM: Ay, you see in the distance a circular object that looks more or less intact. Sarah, your sensors pick out a total of 145 targets that are large, i.e. either a solid ship, or a chunk large enough to rate. Of course, you note your computers warbook flag at least 5 of those targets as INVID: HOSTILE
[10:28:15] Lt. Jaron: "No, stick together for now. Once inside and if we find anything. then we'll split to collect multiple items"
[10:29:33] GM: Jaron, everything out here seems to catch your attention, but your sensors cue in on a few largish targets
[10:30:50] Lt. Jaron relays that to CiC and coordinates "Sarah, can you confirm?"
[10:31:24] CWO2 Sarah: (( confirm which? lol ))
[10:31:44] Lt. Jaron: (either you want )
[10:32:37] CWO2 Sarah pokes at her radar. " Confirmed. 145 ship sized targets on scope, trying to feed through to command Alphas for identification."
[10:32:58] CWO2 Sarah: "145 large enough to be relatively intact, or large chunks anyway."
[10:33:39] 2 LT Komillia: ((afk))
[10:33:48] CWO2 Sarah: (( I need a sensor equipment roll for that? ))
[10:33:49] Lt. Jaron ponders a moment "Lets investigate"
[10:34:01] Lt. Jaron heads out
[10:34:03] GM: Sure
[10:34:08] CWO2 Sarah: [1d100] => [19] = (19)
[10:34:38] GM: okay, so what are you looking at? or trying to look at?
[10:37:32] Lt. Jaron: (ok…might be confused….there is the flagship in front of us…..then in the distance 145 objects, seemingly close together…some reading as Invid?)
[10:37:51] GM: Okay, the command ship is what you are the Yuki etc are hiding in
[10:38:04] GM: 20 bioroids from the Miyuki have entered it
[10:38:34] 2Lt. Aylanea: (( the 145 are all the things big enough to be "relatively intact" or intact, to likely have stuff in them. ))
[10:38:35] GM: in the distance yes, is at least 145 targets, certainly more, but that's all that Sarah's system can handle at one time
[10:38:47] GM: and of those 145 5 are Invid in origin
[10:39:43] GM: think a large asteroid field, but in this case, the asteroids are ships and ship parts
[10:39:47] Lt. Jaron: (Ok)
[10:40:18] Lt. Jaron after seeing the readings again "Ok, lets head to the aft and check it out"
[10:40:32] 2Lt. Aylanea nods. "Yes, sir."
[10:42:18] 2 LT Komillia brings up the rear. "Yay! Salvage time! Think we'll find anything neat?"
[10:42:39] GM: So you heading aft, topside, or bottomside?
[10:43:08] Lt. Jaron as they fly to the top aft, tries to use the sensor link with the others (sensors [1d100] => [28] = (28) vs 55)
[10:43:48] 2Lt. Aylanea shrugs a little. "Not sure. Never know…" She flies along with Jaron, nodding just a little at the sensor link and looking.
[10:43:56] GM: You see a large open hole, squarish in shape about 2/3 the way back
[10:44:48] Lt. Jaron circles around "We'll head through there. Form up"
[10:44:49] 2 LT Komillia keeps her eyes peeled for anything interesting, and possibly still active security systems. [1d20] => [14] = (14) PERC [1d100] => [81] = (81) vs Sensory Equipment
[10:44:58] 2 LT Komillia: ((vs. 60))
[10:46:10] GM: Komillia as you head down, you notice some of the security systems, in the form of (see pic)
[10:46:32] 2 LT Komillia: ((Are they active, or just there?))
[10:46:37] GM: The are in firing position, but, you note, are quite without power
[10:47:19] CWO2 Sarah nods quickly and forms up, looking around curiously.
[10:47:53] Lt. Jaron enters and goes slowly (plenty room to fly I assume?)
[10:48:01] GM: You also note round shapes floating near the large opening, you immediately recognize them as classic Regult battle Pods
[10:49:10] 2 LT Komillia: "Wow. Antiques! Don't think we have much use for them though…
[10:49:19] Lt. Ishida: Intel [1d100] => [6] = (6) Radio [1d100] => [20] = (20)
[10:49:30] Lt. Ishida: Lt Fairman.
[10:49:41] Lt. Ishida says over the comms form the CIC
[10:49:49] Lt. Jaron: "Go ahead"
[10:49:54] CWO2 Sarah watches along as she sees some of the round shapes, blinking a little at them.
[10:50:45] Lt. Ishida: I checked the ships database, and am uploading a deck plan for a Nupetiet-Vergnitzs to you now
[10:52:35] Lt. Jaron checks the deck plans "Roger, also would this turret be of use to us?"
[10:53:19] 2Lt. Aylanea peeks around a little at the turrets and what not, checking the deck plans herself quietly.
[10:53:53] Lt. Ishida: I don't know, to us, I'm not sure, to the UEEF, certainly.
[10:54:14] Lt. Ishida: I'm no mechanic, but I don't think we could mount one of those on the Yukikaze.
[10:54:54] Maj. Kavashera leans in over Ishida and keys the mic
[10:55:00] Lt. Jaron replies "Ok, noted. I will mark it for later" checks deck plans
[10:55:09] Maj. Kavashera: Items like that just tag for later Lieutenant.
[10:55:14] Maj. Kavashera: Good man!
[10:57:03] GM: Flying on you arrive over the massive hole, (Item number 15 on Deck 1, page 32 of the Zent Handbook)
[10:59:15] 2Lt. Aylanea peeks into the hole, and switches her lights on, to look into it.
[11:00:29] GM: Ay, you hit your floods and illuminate a massive hanger bay.
[11:00:59] 2 LT Komillia flies down into the hole and turns on the lights. "Anyone here?" [1d20] => [8] = (8) Perc, [1d100] => [69] = (69) vs 60 RSI, (nothing in particular, just anything odd)
[11:01:40] Lt. Jaron radios "prepare to enter"
[11:01:41] GM: there is battle damage to the hole, which you now see is, was, a massive hatch, and damage inside you see the wreckage of Male Power armor, Invid Shock troopers, Battlepods, Invid Scouts and dead Zentraedi footsoldiers.
[11:02:10] CWO2 Sarah laughs. "It's been here way too long for that, I think." She switches the Beta into guardian mode, switching her lights on and trying to look down into it. [1d20+1] => [14,1] = (15) perc and [1d100] => [49] = (49) rsi
[11:02:27] GM: Sarah you see the same
[11:02:52] CWO2 Sarah winces a little. "Ouch…"
[11:02:57] GM: it looks as if a brutal fight took place here, the deck is covered in dried blood
[11:03:02] Lt. Jaron transforms and enters as well "Any signatures in those mecha?"
[11:03:10] CWO2 Sarah: (( how much green and how much red? ))
[11:03:56] GM: limbs body parts, mecha chunks litter the area in zero gee. A lot of both Sarah, any more will require you to either make some rolls or move further in and look around
[11:04:07] 2Lt. Aylanea flips to Battloid and jets down to the ground level to look around a little. "Hmm…" [1d20] => [9] = (9) perc and [1d100] => [8] = (8) rsi (for signatures on mecha)
[11:04:27] GM: Of the mecha, you do note that there are some 30 or so battle pods on racks that appear undamaged
[11:05:03] 2Lt. Aylanea ooohs. "Depending on how much can be modified or reactor/fuel stripped, 30 pods undamaged on the racks."
[11:05:30] Lt. Jaron: "Nice."
[11:05:43] GM: Also, as a matter of course, there are plenty of Zentraedi side arms…
[11:06:06] GM: and armor parts etc,
[11:06:07] Lt. Jaron notes then to CiC and checks sensors for protoculture and thermals (perception [1d20+2] => [14,2] = (16); sensors [1d100] => [84] = (84) vs 65)
[11:06:56] GM: You have no PC sensors, and your thermals only pick up your team. This area is long dead and cold. This place is a tomb.
[11:07:17] CWO2 Sarah switches herself to Battloid and flies down. "Assuming they're fueled, anyway." She looks around and tries to scan and/or sense for any protoculture herself, in case something is there. [1d10+1] => [1,1] = (2) perc [1d100] => [2] = (2) rsi (assume not +5, not active)
[11:07:26] CWO2 Sarah: (( >.< ))
[11:07:38] CWO2 Sarah: (( squirrel! ))
[11:07:47] CWO2 Sarah: (( sensors for anything else anyway. ))
[11:08:54] Lt. Jaron: (ok about the sensors)
[11:09:24] GM: Your sensors give you some more indication of the battle that took place here. It looks as if the Invid, using their kamikaze style of attacks, breached the bay and boarded the ship, you can see that the Zentraedi crew put up on hell of a fight, but the Invid eventually forced their way past the defenders and further\ into the ship
[11:09:31] 2 LT Komillia goes out looking into the corridor. [1d20] => [14] = (14) perc, [1d100] => [57] = (57) vs60 rsi
[11:10:06] GM: Komillia you can see hastily erected defenses, and lots of dead Zentraedi and Invid
[11:11:19] GM: Sarah you can try again, but you didn't pick up any PC just then
[11:11:33] CWO2 Sarah: (( mkay ))
[11:11:34] Lt. Jaron tries to open of the zent pods and tries to turn it on.
[11:11:59] GM: The pod is open,
[11:12:09] CWO2 Sarah keeps peeking around, and tries to get closer to the pods especially to see if she can sense anything in them PCwise, almost shivering as she looks at them. [1d20+1] => [6,1] = (7)
[11:12:13] GM: But the lettering is on Zentraedi
[11:12:23] CWO2 Sarah: (( *smacks her typist* ))
[11:12:26] GM: gonna have to do better then that Sarah
[11:12:33] CWO2 Sarah: (( yeah, no shit ))
[11:13:02] Lt. Jaron tries anything really
[11:13:43] CWO2 Sarah grumbles. "Mind if I park my battloid for a moment? With the fuel not active, I can't tell if any is here, maybe, maybe I can if the Beta isn't between me and it." She seals her CVR quickly.
[11:13:52] GM: The switch and toggles right above the eye look promising
[11:14:03] Lt. Jaron wishes there was a translate in his on board computer
[11:14:09] CWO2 Sarah: (( y'know, during Great Escape, Rick Max and Lisa were able to fly one without too much trouble, and they don't know Zentraedi ))
[11:14:09] GM: also, for note, as part of the eerie creep factor…
[11:14:20] CWO2 Sarah: (( heehee ))
[11:14:37] GM: Your alphas and bioroid interceptor are approximately the same height as your average Zentraedi warrior
[11:14:51] GM: Sarah's beta would be about Breetai sized
[11:14:58] GM: in terms of height
[11:15:02] Lt. Jaron: "Komillia, you can read classic Zent right?
[11:15:14] GM: so, from your sensors point of view, everything looks, just the right siz
[11:15:20] 2 LT Komillia: "yes."
[11:15:54] Lt. Jaron: "Ok, try to start one of these pods up"
[11:15:56] 2 LT Komillia takes a look inside and tries to read it. [1d100] => [46] = (46) vs 88 Zent Literacy
[11:16:17] GM: You see "POWER ON / POWER OFF"
[11:16:43] 2 LT Komillia: You want me to turn it on right?
[11:17:40] 2 LT Komillia press the switch.
[11:17:46] Lt. Jaron steps back and watches Sarah "Go ahead Sarah, don't take long" He looks to Komillia "Yes go ahead, want to know if they have juice. Madresa cover us"
[11:18:31] GM: With a flick of the switch, the pods interior lighting flickers on. the Screen activates and after a few seconds of static display the hanger bay ahead of it, two blinking arrows flash on the screen pointing upwards to the two toggles that flank the power on switch the word PRESS HERE displays next to the blinking arrows
[11:18:44] CWO2 Sarah nods quickly. "I won't…" She smiles and opens up, quickly slipping out and wincing at the sight. Once she's down, she tries to sense again, closing her eyes and trying to shut everything else out. [1d20+1] => [6,1] = (7)
[11:18:52] CWO2 Sarah: (( grar ))
[11:19:10] 2Lt. Aylanea: (( openrpg not like me tonight ))
[11:19:11] GM: Sarah is still to grossed out by all the dead Invid
[11:19:22] 2 LT Komillia presses the switch absent-mindedly.
[11:19:25] GM: And ther is a LOT of dead Invid
[11:19:33] GM: which one Komillia?
[11:19:37] GM: there are two
[11:19:43] GM: and the arrows are pointing to both
[11:19:48] Lt. Jaron is slightly happy "Nicely done Komillia. Turn it off"
[11:20:15] 2 LT Komillia: ((Both I guess.))
[11:20:31] 2Lt. Aylanea wanders over to cover. "Right…" She shivers. "What'll be creepier is if we find any pods with life support failures, where they died in their sleep."
[11:20:46] GM: The pod shudders as the motor kicks over and the Pods main power up sequence begins, and within 5 seconds is complete.
[11:21:29] GM: A flashing message displays on the screen Komillia
[11:21:39] CWO2 Sarah blinks over as one powers up. She shivers at the sights around her, considering it. She keeps closing her eyes, trying to shut out the smell and the images, and everything else. [1d20+1] => [16,1] = (17)
[11:21:56] GM: and a targeting icon displays over the Beta, the words say UNKN TARGET
[11:22:11] 2Lt. Aylanea peeks over at the power up. "Huh."
[11:22:12] GM: Sarah you feel that pod come alive
[11:22:16] 2 LT Komillia tries to read it. [1d100] => [36] = (36) vs 88 Zent Lit.
[11:22:27] CWO2 Sarah: (( anything else though? ))
[11:22:37] GM: yes, below you
[11:22:59] Lt. Jaron: "Alright, lets start to move. We can collect these later."
[11:23:01] GM: it feels like a deep slow (probably why you missed it) pulsing heartbeat
[11:24:28] GM: Komi, In your bioroid, for note, with a little maneuvering you could possibly squeeze inside this pods cockpit…might not be able to close it up, but you'd be able to reach the controls
[11:24:33] CWO2 Sarah hmms. "There's more protoculture below us, I'll try to guide us there if you like… We should flag these though, yeah…" She blinks at the signature. "It doesn't seem like a normal one, but it's there. We should check it out possibly. It is a potential sign of something."
[11:25:09] CWO2 Sarah: [1d100] => [27] = (27) vs. 69% Lore Invid to see if it's recognizable?
[11:25:21] GM: It's not Invid
[11:25:40] CWO2 Sarah: (( didn't think so, just making sure. ))
[11:25:46] GM: kk
[11:25:51] CWO2 Sarah: (( not something they'd recognize either? mkay. ))
[11:26:04] 2 LT Komillia tries to maneuver the Pod in the Bioroid. ((What skill should that be?))
[11:26:10] GM: piloting
[11:26:20] GM: and -45%
[11:26:23] GM: at
[11:26:26] Lt. Jaron: "Ok then, Sarah take point; Madresa in drag. There is an elevator nearby here."
[11:26:55] 2 LT Komillia: [1d100+45] => [13,45] = (58) vs 85
[11:27:01] CWO2 Sarah heads up for the Beta again, climbing into it quickly. "Acknowledged." She checks the map for the elevator, and starts walking for it.
[11:27:24] GM: Komillia, the pod works! you are able to get it off the rack and are now patting around the hanger bay
[11:27:51] 2Lt. Aylanea: "Acknowledged, as long as it's not too far in drag. That might constrict airflow if it presses my chest too far." She snickers just a little.
[11:27:55] GM: Mom and Dad were right! It IS just like riding a bike!
[11:28:05] 2Lt. Aylanea: (( rofl ))
[11:28:09] 2 LT Komillia: Heh. Fun.
[11:28:18] GM: pom pom pom
[11:28:41] 2 LT Komillia should I keep it or just ditch and keep going…
[11:29:03] Lt. Jaron looks to Komillia "Bioroid please."
[11:29:29] GM: Shit man, trick this thing out, put some 20in dubs and some twice pipes on it, maybe some hydraulics, pimp this ride up yo, maybe add a PlayStation!
[11:29:40] 2 LT Komillia climbs out. "Fun while it lasted.
[11:30:06] 2 LT Komillia: ((But the Playstation 40K is so expensive…))
[11:30:24] GM: You enter the elevator. It only goes down one floor.
[11:31:11] CWO2 Sarah snerks. "Take a hit or three in one, then say it's 'fun'."
[11:31:55] CWO2 Sarah follows the elevator down and steps out, trying to see if they' re closer to that souce, or if it's down further. [1d20+1] => [2,1] = (3)
[11:32:11] CWO2 Sarah: (( and the suck and fail returns ))
[11:32:28] GM: Sarah, that heartbeat must be between pulses , you can't feel it now
[11:32:33] 2 LT Komillia looks at Sarah, "Two words: Disposable booster."
[11:32:41] Lt. Jaron trails Sarah on her journey
[11:32:47] GM: You exit the elevator and enter a crew area
[11:33:06] 2Lt. Aylanea peeks around, shining her mecha lights at things.
[11:33:25] GM: racks and racks of triple bunk bed cots lie in rows inside the barracks structure
[11:33:48] CWO2 Sarah keeps quiet, breathing quietly as she tries to recapture the 'heartbeat'. [1d20+1] => [11,1] = (12)
[11:33:49] GM: bedding and meager personal items float in zero gee along side mummified corpses
[11:34:34] 2Lt. Aylanea shivers. "Lotsa dead people. Ouch."
