[07:36:20] GM: The Major informs you that Operation Undermine (yes, so creative, better then Eager Mole, and yes, that one was suggested by the planning department.) Is slated to begin in 36 hours. Gear check will be in 30, deployment in 32.
[07:40:33] GM: Phase 1 will consist of entry to the mountain and securing a perimeter. Phase 2 will be to establish a firebase in one of the nearby caverns as well as a few outposts. Phase 3 will run concurrently with Phase 2 and will deal with recon of the nearby tunnels. Phase 4 will see you move deeper into the tunnel network to sniff out enemy force locations and other key features as well as pathfind for follow on units. Phase 5 will consist of clearing a path, preferable a larger entry point, to allow larger follow on units on the surface to gain entry. Phase 6 will be to screen those units from Haydonite counter attack until they can reform and assault the cave network as a whole.
[07:43:47] Maj. Kavashera: The 33rd as a whole will be split into two parts, a smaller contingent will remain on the surface while the majority of our heavy units will establish our beachhead and outposts. A KDF unit will be on hand to assist us and will backfill our Firebase allowing us to free up 33rd assets to conduct Phases 3 thru 6.
[07:45:35] Maj. Kavashera: We will also have proximity to the UEEF units in Sector 12, but will require a specific and immediate need. Command does not want to start yanking troops around the surface if they can help it, if the Haydonites get a whiff of that they might figure out whats going on, and then we have a thumping headed out way.
[07:47:18] Maj. Kavashera: Those of you who have been in on the planning from the onset already know this, but you cherries best listen up. This op is not only strategic in nature, but has a political component. The Karberran Government is very keen to get this nest cleared out. And highly placed eyes in both the KDF and UEEF will be watching.
[07:48:17] Maj. Kavashera: So, don’t fuck this up, or I will cut you loose faster then a molten brick and save my own career. Is that clear?
[07:48:45] Maj. Kavashera snickers with a trademark sparkle of crazy in his eyes.
[07:49:08] 2 LT Komillia mutters she's surprised she's not in the brig…
[07:49:22] Maj. Kavashera: About that miss knife puller.
[07:49:27] Maj. Kavashera: You should be
[07:49:54] Maj. Kavashera: But, interestingly enough, no one from that bar you held up surfaced to press any charges.
[07:50:17] 2nd Lt Vinai raised a single hand. "Sir, are the supporting units aware of the secured tac channel we'll be setting up. I'd hate for such a back up plan to go awry because of lack of knowledge."
[07:50:24] Maj. Kavashera: And elements of the Interior Ministry, shall we say, swept over the rest.
[07:51:01] Maj. Kavashera: No, they will not be tied into our net Vinai. Only the KDF contingent will be dialed in.
[07:52:13] Maj. Kavashera: If you need to talk to any units outside of the 33rd, it will go thru channels and up to the TOC in the Artemis, and then thru me.
[07:52:29] Lt. Jaron: "Major. Can we have artillery or air strikes on the other entrances to maybe draw attention away from our planned entrance"
[07:52:48] Maj. Kavashera: I don't think we will need to talk to any other units until Phase 5
[07:53:04] 2 LT Komillia ponders why none of the partons pressed charges, but continues to listen quietly.
[07:53:42] Maj. Kavashera snerks sligtly at the Lieutenants question.
[07:54:01] Maj. Kavashera: Why dont you ask your Platoon leader about that.
[07:54:24] Lt. Ishida turns to Vinai.
[07:54:28] KSN (enter): 19:54
[07:54:36] Attempting to assign the role of Player to (8) KSN…
[07:54:47] Lt. Ishida: All sector entrances are under constant bombardment and air attack.
[07:55:40] Maj. Kavashera: As Spooki said, the diversion we need has been a month in the running and ongoing as we speak.
[07:55:55] FO Ryu Hasegawa seems strangly quiet, arms folded across his chest, head resting on it as he listens
[07:56:31] 2nd Lt Vinai glanced at Ishida. "What's up?"
[07:56:52] CWO2 Sarah stays quiet, taking note of everything intended to go on, so she can keep it all in mind for later when they'll need to know it.
[07:56:52] Maj. Kavashera: All right then, you know the drill. Get your gear squared away, take a respite and be ready for muster in 30 hours.
[07:57:07] Maj. Kavashera: DIS missed!
[07:57:35] Maj. Kavashera: Ishida, Fiarman, hang back a second.
[07:57:48] 2 LT Komillia stands at attention and then marches out sullenly.
[07:58:09] Server Administrator-> Kicking '(2) KSN' from server… Removing dead client
[07:58:09] Lt. Jaron does so
[07:58:09] Server Administrator-> Kicking '(2) KSN' from server… Removing dead client
[07:58:10] KSN (exit): 19:58
[07:58:36] 2nd Lt Vinai cuts a salute and heads off towards the Communications Bay to do final run-downs for his gear acquisation.
[07:59:10] CWO2 Sarah slips off quietly, evaluating potential best equipment for the mission, and whatnot.
[07:59:18] GM: Free RP for all but Jaron and Ishida who are with the Major for the time being.
[08:00:04] 2Lt. Aylanea slips out, and looks around a little, giving Komi something of a look as she heads out. "Lucked out this time."
[08:00:20] 2 LT Komillia: Yeah, I guess.
[08:00:43] LCpl Summerwind stretches on her way out the briefing room
[08:00:53] LCpl Summerwind: I cant wait to kill me some toasters.
[08:01:22] 2Lt. Aylanea glances over at Anji and laughs just a little bit.
[08:01:27] 2nd Lt Vinai once arriving in the Comms Bay, Max checks over his Laser/Satcom devices to make sure all gear is in near perfect working order. He looked behind him not having called Anji with him, he proceeds to do function tests.
[08:03:42] GM: You perform your function tests and by and large everything is 5 by 5, you iron out the remaining kinks.
[08:04:25] FO Ryu Hasegawa walks into the comms bay looking for Max
[08:04:48] GM: Also Vin, if you wish to make a roll based on a desire you had a few sessions ago, you may roll…but the condition is…you gotta tell me what you are doing first.
[08:04:53] FO Ryu Hasegawa: "Hey Max you in here?"
[08:05:19] 2nd Lt Vinai didn't pause in his movement. "Over here Ryu. What can I do for you?"
[08:05:33] 2nd Lt Vinai: ((ok…))
[08:07:08] 2nd Lt Vinai has momentarily stopped in front of his labtop and began his normal knowledge sweep. "So…no luck?
[08:07:34] FO Ryu Hasegawa: "Nah…though Ive had stuff on my mind since the brief"
[08:07:45] FO Ryu Hasegawa: "kind of forgot about that chaplain sorry"
[08:07:50] FO Ryu Hasegawa seems distant
[08:08:34] 2nd Lt Vinai: "Tch…tell me about it. We have a guide into…don't worry about that. So what's with the look of solidarity. Something chewin on your brain?"
[08:09:00] 2 LT Komillia meanders to check her gear. Checking the VR-059 Devastator almost half-heartedly.
[08:09:28] FO Ryu Hasegawa: "Yeah…actually care to get a drink?"
[08:09:39] FO Ryu Hasegawa he jerks his head toward the door
[08:09:58] 2nd Lt Vinai begins to type once again. No luck with women, half luck with gear acquisition. One more peek couldn't hurt. The screen turns blue and begins to scroll random characters. "In a moment" (Attempting to gain access to Karbarran government files)
[08:10:21] CWO2 Sarah heads to check over gear herself, really, pondering it quietly.
[08:10:37] GM: Wow, should hit you with -50 DKP for spelling, but, then, that would make me a hypocrite. Right james?
[08:11:09] GM: And as a hint Vin, the Other other request you had.
[08:11:25] GM: but roll anyway
[08:11:30] 2 LT Komillia: ((indeed you would be a hypocrite.))
[08:11:40] 2nd Lt Vinai: ((yup…that's what I'm attempting for…I think if I'm following what you're talking about)).
[08:11:47] GM: ((and I know you spelled that wrong to spite me lol))
[08:12:10] 2nd Lt Vinai: Skill Check: [1d100] =>  = (96)% vs skill of 48%
[08:12:23] KSN: ((wake me up when it starts to Rayn ))
[08:12:43] GM: Wow…just wow.
[08:13:10] 2nd Lt Vinai was thinking about blowing his point…but won't.
[08:13:14] GM: Not only does your computer boot you, but you have the feeling that Black Helicopters are gonna swarm you any minute.
[08:14:32] FO Ryu Hasegawa peers over Vinai's shoulder
[08:14:36] 2nd Lt Vinai simply closes the laptop. "It shouldn't be this fucking difficult to find a goddamn mining facility!" He then shook his head as he looked to Ryu. "Alcohol….lets go."
[08:14:58] FO Ryu Hasegawa: "agreed" he laughs, but only halfheartedly
[08:15:38] GM: Ryu and Vin, roll percs.
[08:15:54] 2nd Lt Vinai exists the bay with Ryu. "I just…don't fucking get it. Mining facilities should be commercial information. You know?"
[08:16:10] FO Ryu Hasegawa: [1d20] =>  = (10)
[08:16:16] 2nd Lt Vinai: [1d20] =>  = (14)
[08:17:14] GM: Vin you notice a landed Garfish, Marathon Class. There are trucks in a nearby hanger.
[08:17:42] GM: ((Marathon Class = Honking Cargo pod, no turret.))
[08:18:28] 2nd Lt Vinai nudges Ryu. "Hey…what's that all about?" Points out to Ryu about the transports and their land minis.
[08:18:48] FO Ryu Hasegawa: "Hunh?" he looks, but is obviously distracted like something on his mind
[08:19:16] 2 LT Komillia: ((back))
[08:19:20] 2nd Lt Vinai shrugs lightly. "Double shots. I'll pay". He motions for Ryu to follow him towards the landed craft.
[08:20:22] LCpl Summerwind: [1d100] =>  = (82)
[08:21:20] FO Ryu Hasegawa nods and follows Vinny
[08:21:22] GM: Summer winds prowl isn't as stealthy as she had hoped, but regardless, as you turn to regard the sound behind you she jumps up exclaims.
[08:21:39] LCpl Summerwind: Ohh, whatchall doin!?
[08:21:41] 2nd Lt Vinai: "What is it Anji…"
[08:24:15] LCpl Summerwind: Ohh, cargo flight.
[08:24:23] LCpl Summerwind walks past you towards the Garfish.
[08:24:31] LCpl Summerwind: Lets see what they got!
[08:25:24] 2nd Lt Vinai shrugs. "As long as you don't try that weird cougar thing again eh? Watching you walk around like that is both creepy and seductive."
[08:25:42] LCpl Summerwind: Oh I bet you say that to all the enlisted poon.
[08:26:10] FO Ryu Hasegawa laughs slightly
[08:26:18] 2nd Lt Vinai: "Nope only poon with a big backside to match".
[08:26:21] 2nd Lt Vinai snickered slightly.
[08:26:35] LCpl Summerwind squeezes her own ass.
[08:26:44] LCpl Summerwind: Well, damn, sorry to disappoint.
[08:26:57] 2nd Lt Vinai shrugs, "Of all people you should know how dark-skinned Tirolian men are."
[08:27:14] FO Ryu Hasegawa: "I knew you'd be a riot Anj" he laughs slightly
[08:27:20] LCpl Summerwind: Yes, you like big butts and you can not lie.
[08:28:02] 2nd Lt Vinai nods slowly. "But bendable chicks are nice too…they're priority two on the list of women to get the DoD."
[08:28:10] FO Ryu Hasegawa grins to Max
[08:28:30] FO Ryu Hasegawa: "Of course, the more flexible, the better"
[08:29:02] LCpl Summerwind: Yeah, well, don’t make me pimp slap ya!
[08:29:03] 2nd Lt Vinai shook his head. "Personally I light weightlifting when I have sex….get it…because I like thick women."
[08:29:16] 2nd Lt Vinai: *I like weightlifting
[08:29:59] GM: You reach the hanger and there are about 20 trucks inside, some are being unloaded and their palletized cargo is being transferred to the Garfish.
[08:32:15] 2nd Lt Vinai approaches one of the loaders without necessarily getting into his path of hauling. "So…latest supply of Karbarran porn?"
[08:33:03] UEMC Pvt.: I wish!
[08:33:21] UEMC Pvt.: Actually, no, I don't, what am I saying, eww.
[08:33:33] CWO2 Sarah: (( rotfl ))
[08:33:44] 2nd Lt Vinai laughed lightly. "Oh so you like that kinda stuff eh? That's cool…but what is it really?"
[08:33:59] UEMC Pvt.: Cargo shipment off world.
[08:34:22] UEMC Pvt. looks a the manifest.
[08:34:34] UEMC Pvt.: Hmm, shipment to the UES Icarus.
[08:34:49] UEMC Pvt.: And, UES Ark Angel.
[08:35:09] 2nd Lt Vinai nods slightly. "Very good…so is the Karbarran organs in fresh condition?"
[08:35:17] UEMC Pvt. snorts
[08:35:23] UEMC Pvt.: Yeah, fresh and beating.
[08:35:32] GM: Meanwhile…
[08:35:50] LCpl Summerwind has tron off the plastic wrap on a pallet and has gotten into the cargo.
[08:36:30] FO Ryu Hasegawa looks around the Cargo plain, watching Vinny joke about organs with a smirk
[08:37:01] 2nd Lt Vinai doesn't have to look to know what's going on with Anji…he is a Tirolian after all. He's been robbed before.
[08:38:05] LCpl Summerwind pulls out of a box a CVR-3 helmet with an odd attachment.
[08:38:43] 2nd Lt Vinai shook his head slowly. "So how much are the beating organs going for apparently. Enough if the UEEF want them."
[08:39:01] LCpl Summerwind fiddles with the item.
[08:39:31] UEMC Pvt.: Ha, funny, why don’t you talk to medical folks. I'm just a cargo monkey.
[08:40:15] 2nd Lt Vinai nods slowly. "But cargo monkeys get to play around the cargo from start to finish. So where did ya get it. Ya know I might want to buy a lucky foot or two."
[08:40:45] FO Ryu Hasegawa: "I didn’t know you had an interest in these things Vinny" laughs
[08:40:54] UEMC Pvt.: Jeez you are dense, it's not feet! It's parts and supplies.
[08:41:21] 2nd Lt Vinai: "And you still haven't answered my question."
[08:41:28] LCpl Summerwind removes the helmet with a shit eating grin and replaces it int he box. Then, walks off and get a pallet jack.
[08:43:02] 2nd Lt Vinai: "But you know I'm sure…if you don't want to tell me" Putting his hands in his pockets, "I'm sure letting your Platoon Sgt know about your current fetish with the Karbarran women might set you back a bit in life you know?" (Performance attempt).
[08:43:20] GM: roll it
[08:43:33] 2nd Lt Vinai: Skill Check: [1d100] =>  = (39)% vs skill of 78%
[08:43:48] KSN: ((PWNZ))
[08:43:54] UEMC Pvt.: What? Wait! No, hey! You were the one that said it was Karbarran porn man!
[08:43:58] 2nd Lt Vinai: ((where was that f'ing roll when I was trying to haxor the KDR!))
[08:44:15] 2nd Lt Vinai: "But you were the one that said you wished it were."
[08:44:20] 2nd Lt Vinai takes a couple more steps.
[08:44:33] LCpl Summerwind slides the pallet jack under the pallet and jacks it up, then, pulls it out of the line and starts dragging it away.
[08:45:13] UEMC Pvt.: I was just JOKING!
[08:45:26] 2nd Lt Vinai lifts a hand. "Pardon me…where can I find…the…" pauses intuitively.
[08:45:41] UEMC Pvt. looks at Ryu.
[08:45:49] UEMC Pvt.: You tell hem I was just kidding, jeez!
[08:46:24] LCpl Summerwind drags the pallet out of the hanger and into the next.
[08:46:37] 2nd Lt Vinai: "Careful there private…don't wanna bring any unwanted attention to yourself. I might be forced to talk."
[08:47:16] UEMC Pvt.: Talk! About what? … Sir. Look, I need to get back to work, It was just a joke, I mean, come on man, I mean sir.
[08:47:28] 2nd Lt Vinai: "Where did this stuff come from?"
[08:47:55] UEMC Pvt.: From the city. Look I really have to help get this loaded.
[08:48:25] LCpl Summerwind keeps going with the pallet towards the Artemis, whistling to herself.
[08:48:57] 2nd Lt Vinai: "…I know about the NNN private. The Non-NCO Network has more information than any library. So if you don't care to talk…I'll find someone else willing to be a bit more descriptive." (Another Performance check if necessary?)
[08:49:26] GM: As you continue to harass the poor Private a NCO walks up clipboard in hand.
[08:49:53] UEMC MSgt.: Alright! Just what the fuck is going on here?
[08:50:06] UEMC MSgt.: Private! Get back to work.
[08:50:21] 2nd Lt Vinai nods slightly. "Well Master Sergeant…I just wanted to tell you about this private here."
[08:50:22] UEMC MSgt.: You two, clear the hell out of here. Dammit, this is a work area.
[08:50:52] GM: Those that have been in the military, 2lts' do NOT fuck with master sergeants.
[08:51:12] 2nd Lt Vinai: ((that depends lol))
[08:51:14] GM: One of those, unwritten rules of the Corps.
[08:51:19] KSN: ((Wants to be a M Sgt.
[08:51:23] 2nd Lt Vinai: ((usually no heh))
[08:51:29] GM: Well this guy looks not to be one to mess with.
[08:51:43] 2 LT Komillia: ((Not the SMART ones anyway.))
[08:51:55] GM: Prolly been on leave longer then you've been in.
[08:52:28] 2Lt. Aylanea: (( rofl. ))
[08:53:09] 2nd Lt Vinai looked back to the private. "Never mind Master Sergeant. We were simply curious about the gear here. Our apologizes for slowing down your work force. Ryu lets go shall we? Oh and good luck with that thing Private. You should talk to someone about that."
[08:53:39] GM: You leave as the Msgt chews out the Private for not being on task.
[08:53:42] FO Ryu Hasegawa nods and starts heading toward the exit of the cargo transport
[08:54:44] 2nd Lt Vinai: "Well…all I know is whatever the hell this shit is, is from the city. Which city I have no clue….Oh and where in the hell did Anji go?"
[08:54:44] 2Lt. Aylanea: (( we're all watching that play out to see what Anji swiped ))
[08:55:52] GM: Anji is the next three hangers over by now, your hanger. She has the plastic wrap off the pallet and has directed a few lowly 33rd Privates to load the contents of the pallet into the Artemis.
[08:56:09] FO Ryu Hasegawa: "whatever it is she was after something"
[08:56:29] LCpl Summerwind: Hi guys! Great cover by the way!
[08:56:40] LCpl Summerwind tosses you one of the items.
[08:56:44] 2nd Lt Vinai glances over and shakes his head. Motioning over towards their hanger. "So what did you pick up oh sexy ninja."
[08:57:07] 2nd Lt Vinai catches the helmet. "Anji…I'm going to take responsibility" ((Anime inside joke)).
[08:57:07] Lt. Jaron arrives at the hangar and comments to Anji "Great cover for what?"
[08:57:27] FO Ryu Hasegawa looks over the helmet then jerks his head
[08:57:34] FO Ryu Hasegawa: "C'mon Vin, its important"
[08:57:50] 2nd Lt Vinai shows Ryu the helmet. "You're welcome."
[08:57:52] FO Ryu Hasegawa he tries to smile
[08:58:01] LCpl Summerwind: http /shadowchroniclesrpg.wikidot.com/uemc-weapons CVR-3 Rhino Mount tab
[08:58:13] FO Ryu Hasegawa: "Its some nice hardware to be sure"
[08:58:28] Lt. Ishida: Yes, cover for what indeed.
[08:58:57] LCpl Summerwind: Oh, some new hardware, sir and ma'am.
[08:59:02] LCpl Summerwind looks at manifest.
[08:59:10] 2nd Lt Vinai leans against the pallet.
[08:59:14] LCpl Summerwind: For some folks in Skull Squadron, whoever they are.
[08:59:31] LCpl Summerwind tosses the manifest over her shoulder and shrugs.
[08:59:42] LCpl Summerwind: Buncha fleet wankers anyway.
[08:59:47] 2nd Lt Vinai instinctively reaches out for the paperwork.
[08:59:47] Lt. Jaron: "Did you sign for them and what did Ryu and Vinai do?"
[09:00:04] 2nd Lt Vinai: "No questions…just nod happily."
[09:00:06] LCpl Summerwind: I didn't sign for them…per se.
[09:00:12] 2nd Lt Vinai hopefully caught the manifest.
[09:00:18] LCpl Summerwind: I … liberated them.
[09:00:29] LCpl Summerwind smiles proudly.
[09:00:39] 2nd Lt Vinai: "Acquisition is a much nicer term Anji."
[09:00:51] Lt. Ishida snickers, but catches herself. And tries to look stern.
[09:01:08] Lt. Jaron: "Many all three of you can spend some quality time with Komillia after the mission"
[09:01:10] Lt. Ishida: I..I'm going to check on my gear Lieutenant.
[09:01:12] Lt. Ishida leaves.
[09:01:18] 2nd Lt Vinai smirked slightly. "Ooo…the Princess of Death giggles."
[09:01:41] FO Ryu Hasegawa: "Liberated? I like that term" he grins
[09:01:52] LCpl Summerwind: Acquisition, I like that, now that’s a 10 credit word.
[09:02:12] 2nd Lt Vinai: Score one for the Echo ninjas. Anji we make a great stick-up team.
[09:02:29] 2nd Lt Vinai laughed soundly. "Come have a drink with us…we promise not to touch you…"
[09:02:37] 2nd Lt Vinai: "Without your permission.
[09:02:42] Lt. Jaron nods "Very well since you all agree. I will make the disciplinary action interesting then. Anji where did you get them from?"
[09:03:14] 2nd Lt Vinai slightly steps in front of Anji. "She's a radiowoman. I'll deal with her miscreant activities."
[09:03:47] Lt. Jaron: "Stow it Vinai."
[09:03:55] LCpl Summerwind: Well you know Lt. procurement is such a nightmare.
[09:04:02] 2Lt. Aylanea wanders in and blinks at the discussions, raising her eyebrows a little bit.
[09:04:15] FO Ryu Hasegawa: "wait, disciplinary action? why am I not surprised" he scowls
[09:04:25] FO Ryu Hasegawa: "figures the suits would ay something"
[09:04:34] LCpl Summerwind: And, those fleet buggers always seem to get the best gear while we lowly mud humpers get the short end…
[09:04:58] 2nd Lt Vinai: "It's not like we don't need these helmets. I'll deal with any issues that may come up. As far as you know…this didn’t' happen…Right… Jaron?"
[09:05:25] CWO2 Sarah wanders in from a different place, looking around and wandering in Suki's direction.
[09:05:29] Lt. Jaron: "Negative Vinai."
[09:05:30] LCpl Summerwind gives you her best puppy dog eyes.
[09:05:46] 2nd Lt Vinai: "You're kidding me right?"
[09:06:07] FO Ryu Hasegawa: "screw this!" he says angrily
[09:06:23] Lt. Utenaru: Oooh, new helmets! Score!
[09:06:37] Lt. Utenaru plops one on her portly face.
[09:06:44] Lt. Jaron: "I am not. I don’t need any more headaches then whats happened recently."
[09:07:16] FO Ryu Hasegawa: "Lets go Vinny, I'm not gonna take the fall for this"
[09:07:27] FO Ryu Hasegawa seems genuinely angry
[09:07:46] 2nd Lt Vinai holds out a hand. "No…they aren't for us…Lt Jaron here would rather not have our ground troops have upgraded gear, rather than have someone else deal with any fall out. As far as I'm concerned. He'd rather watch his own back then look out for our backups." (Performance again lol)
[09:08:02] GM: roll it
[09:08:09] 2nd Lt Vinai: Skill Check: [1d100] =>  = (21)% vs skill of 78%
[09:08:25] Lt. Utenaru: Oh wow, now that's a load of BS that would fertilize the Sahara.
[09:08:32] Lt. Utenaru laughs
[09:08:49] 2nd Lt Vinai shakes his head. "It's alright…he has a point…but still…" He then walks off with Ryu to get liquor. "Coming Anji?"
[09:09:08] Lt. Utenaru: And Lieutenant, you would do well then to lambast your Platoon leader.
[09:09:36] Lt. Utenaru: However compelling the argument may be.
[09:10:04] Lt. Jaron taps Vinai on the shoulder
[09:10:17] 2nd Lt Vinai: "Sometimes miss…there shouldn't be a need to argue things that are just genuinely…what?" Paused in his motion.
[09:10:42] Lt. Jaron tries to land a right hook (to strike [1d20+4] => [3,4] = (7))
[09:11:02] GM: Well it's a surprise attack so, it hits, but, it sure is a sloppy hit, half damage
[09:11:18] FO Ryu Hasegawa grimaces and yells
[09:11:23] 2Lt. Aylanea wanders up to the others, blinking as she sees a fist thrown. "Err…"
[09:11:33] Lt. Jaron: [1d4+3] => [4,3] = (7)
[09:11:34] FO Ryu Hasegawa: "STOP THIS WE SHOULD BE FIGHTING HAYDONITES NOT EACH OTHER!"
[09:11:51] FO Ryu Hasegawa he bites his lip, shaking visibly
[09:12:04] Lt. Utenaru moves in and separates the attackers. and being one of Samoan decent, it's not hard to do.
[09:12:18] Lt. Utenaru: Oh you keke's stop it.
[09:12:24] Lt. Utenaru she says calmly.
[09:13:02] Lt. Utenaru gives all around the look that stopping it would be a smart choice.
[09:13:13] Lt. Utenaru is the 33rd's XO after all.
[09:13:13] 2nd Lt Vinai took the blow in stride. He then brought his head back down. "Are you done Jaron? Were you offended that much by my liberal thinking that you struck me? I see where I stand now with this unit. All for one and none for everyone else…lets go Ryu."
[09:13:16] Lt. Jaron looks to Vinai "One, don't insult your CO and two not while they are in earshot." He looks to Anji "Return those helmets with Vinai and Ryu's help" he looks sternly at the three "Understood?"
[09:13:46] 2Lt. Aylanea: (( a large Samoan woman. fear that. Bob Barker used to. ))
[09:14:27] 2nd Lt Vinai paused in his stride. "You struck me, then hope that I listen to your commands. I suppose the appropriate recourse of action would be to return the favor, then do what you asked correct?"
[09:14:47] LCpl Summerwind: But sir…they have thermal vision.
[09:15:02] LCpl Summerwind: Pilots don’t need thermal vision.
[09:15:19] Lt. Jaron: "I struck you for the insult. The order was to prevent MPs coming after you three."
[09:15:41] Lt. Utenaru: Thermal vision? really?
[09:15:46] Lt. Utenaru puts helmet back on.
[09:16:26] 2nd Lt Vinai: "And I told you I would handle this issue. Have you forgotten lower chain of command possible? Or must…forget it. Let Ryu go on ahead. He had no dealings with this." Pats Anji on the head. "Lets go you…we got some repackaging to do."
[09:17:10] LCpl Summerwind: Aww man. Now we're never gonna get the good stuff.
[09:17:14] LCpl Summerwind sulks.
[09:17:27] 2nd Lt Vinai: "BOHICA Anji…BOHICA."
[09:17:48] LCpl Summerwind: Yeah, and no vasoline neither.
[09:17:50] 2nd Lt Vinai: ((note: those weren't yellings..but a clever acronym))
[09:17:50] FO Ryu Hasegawa: "No I'm not leaving with you Vinai"
[09:18:05] FO Ryu Hasegawa grimaces at Jaron
[09:18:11] 2nd Lt Vinai inclines his head. "You're a good man Ryu…better than me."
[09:18:13] 2Lt. Aylanea blinks at Utenaru puts the helmet on, glancing to Jaron. "Seems our superior is interested in them." She gestures for Jaron in Lt. Utenaru's direction.
[09:18:21] FO Ryu Hasegawa: "if the LETENANT thinks I should be punished, I will take the punishment"
[09:18:43] FO Ryu Hasegawa: "But your my friend Vinny, not leaving you behind"
[09:19:24] Lt. Jaron: "Maybe so but the troops who got them might need them more. They weren't thinking. Plus can't have theft going on"
[09:20:07] Lt. Utenaru: Not for nothing, but Fleet pilots don’t need gear with thermal vision with a range of 500ft.
[09:20:18] Lt. Utenaru: But, I will back your call Fairman.
[09:20:37] Lt. Utenaru: And yes, I know I loaded that.
[09:20:38] KSN: ((prays for Garfish to take the hell off hehe))
[09:20:56] 2nd Lt Vinai: "As callous and absurd as this sounds, but our troops matter more." Max takes Ryu's arm and does a roman handshake at the forearm. "I appreciate your honesty…lets get this done…we've got drinking to do."
[09:20:56] Lt. Utenaru: But that’s who I am.
[09:21:00] 2Lt. Aylanea glances to Jaron and the Unit Exec quietly, staying out of it.
[09:21:20] Lt. Jaron rubs his temple "Its ok Utenaru"
[09:21:42] Lt. Ishida at the far end of the hanger, almost out of earshot, looks at Jaron, half way expectantly.
[09:23:16] CWO2 Sarah walks over to Suki, though she's watching the others. "Something else going on now?" She keeps watching the situation, even at the far end, concernedly.
[09:23:57] Lt. Ishida: A bit of command dynamics is going to play out Sarah-chan. It will be interesting to see which way this goes.
[09:24:22] Lt. Ishida watches with keen interest.
[09:24:31] CWO2 Sarah nods just a little at that, looking over interestedly as well.
[09:24:55] Lt. Ishida: Truth be told, I empathize with both views.
[09:25:17] FO Ryu Hasegawa starts packing things up alongside Vinny
[09:25:50] Lt. Utenaru: Well Fairman. Whats the call?
[09:26:50] Lt. Jaron replies "Can you get them sign for?"
[09:27:08] Lt. Utenaru pauses.
[09:27:15] Lt. Utenaru: Sure.
[09:27:40] Lt. Jaron: "Alright then."
[09:27:42] CWO2 Sarah nods just a little. "I didn't see the start of it, so…"
[09:27:42] Lt. Utenaru turns to the rest.
[09:27:49] Lt. Utenaru: Alright keke's!
[09:27:59] Lt. Utenaru: Load em up, Christmas comes early this year.
[09:28:16] Lt. Utenaru turns to Jaron and… (in whisper.))
[09:28:43] Lt. Jaron feels his hair turning gray at times
[09:29:10] Lt. Jaron nods to Utenaru and gives a slight smile, he definitely need to hear that
[09:30:01] CWO2 Sarah: (( aww. ))
[09:30:03] CWO2 Sarah: (( hehe ))
[09:30:17] CWO2 Sarah just tries to keep attention with all senses in that direction, curious.
[09:30:51] GM: Okay, to move on
[09:31:22] 2nd Lt Vinai looked to Ryu and grinned just slightly. "Another win for the little people…" (afk again)
[09:32:44] GM: Each player give me a brief rundown of what you do ( or who you do) during the next 36 hours) As an added bit of lore and RP. Old Grey fur arrives and after some words presents the group with new fur liners for their winter jackets. Ryu, Suki, Sarah, and Astrea get black, because they were directly involved in the kill, the rest get white, because they are in the same unit. (platoon)
[09:33:47] GM: The liners are a bit of Karberran tradition, and most if not all Karbarrans will understand the significance of the liners.
[09:34:15] KSN: ((is trapped in the twilight zone over the next 36 hrs lol — sorry couldn't resist))
[09:34:33] GM: Old Grey fur then leaves to confer with the Major…
[09:34:57] GM: I will continue with the cutscene after you all tell me what y’all do…))
[09:35:41] Lt. Jaron reads the specs on the helmet and looks over the map some. (intelligence [1d100] =>  = (27) vs 69)
[09:35:48] 2 LT Komillia tries to drown herself taking care of duties, over-cleaning her room, and getting reading the manual on the Devastator.
[09:36:25] 2nd Lt Vinai: (Would attempt to gain information about mining facilities for 12 hours. If still unsuccessful, he'll simply quit and go with the cave entrances. If successful, he'd bring all close proximity info to Maj Kavashera for review and hopeful revamping of possible entry into the mountain. Oh…and possible bar pick up sex.))
[09:36:43] Gage is readying his balanced M90 and making a makeshift magazine attachment for the forearm of his 050
[09:37:01] GM: Jaron, you know whats in the write up on the site.
[09:38:20] GM: Vin, (based on prior rolls) KDF net security is tight as a drum, you pass along your info and get to nail a cute Tirolian bar wench.
[09:38:51] 2nd Lt Vinai: (Big booty bitches…I mean…nice).
[09:39:22] FO Ryu Hasegawa: Spends the time drinking, maybe halfheartedly hit on the wenches, but still fuming about what happened)
[09:40:11] Lt. Ishida blows off steam in the gym, and later, in bed.
[09:40:49] 2nd Lt Vinai shares his bar wench with Ryu? lol
[09:41:10] GM: hehe, I'm leaving that one alone
[09:42:09] CWO2 Sarah just works on checking her equipment, and getting used to a different Cyclone model.
[09:42:26] 2Lt. Aylanea just waits, trying to relax and get ready for going underground.
You get yourselves all squared away, and when the time comes go thru your gear check. The 'new' helmets have been disseminated and the entire 33rd seems very happy about the new toy. You all pile into the 'camper' and trek out to the battlefield. Settling down a half click to the rear of the fray the Aretimis hunkers down and a perimeter is put up as Sadrine begins her work
The hole is dug in record time, and many of the group and the 33rd watch a 'Stone Master' at work. The breech is big enough to allow Bioroids to enter and within a day the bulk of the 33rds mecha are within the ground. The Firebase is set up, illuminated by a cadre of Searchlight Mecha and glo sticks (as well as interior lighting inside the tents and other erected structures.
The KDF forces arrive in dribs and drabs over the next four days of which you have all been underground. You are allowed a few hours above ground for a last look at the sky before Phase 3 begins.
Old Grey Fur resides within the Artemis, and thus far his expertise has been spot on.
Sadrine is inside a specially modified Cyclone that has light elements that bombard her with lifegiving UV rays.
Thus far, you have not had any contact with the enemy. and besides the hard work, it has been to this point, a cake walk.
[09:51:07] GM: Phase 3
[09:53:25] GM: Consulting the map, your Firebase rest in the middle of the larger yellow area behind the entry point.
[09:54:54] GM: Jaron, you have the map. It is time to venture into the caves. The Major has left this up to your discretion. Suki's FIST unit is on support duty, let your troops and your support unit know where you need them.
[09:54:59] GM: Annnd GO!
[09:58:55] Lt. Jaron: "Alright, we'll hit the fork up ahead and then take a left. We head to the large area about half a mile in. Fist unit; just tail us for now in case of collapses"
[10:06:19] GM: Okay
[10:06:38] GM: This area begins to descend.
[10:07:14] 2nd Lt Vinai: ((loves the zoom function))
[10:07:37] 2 LT Komillia hangs toward the rear to watch the groups back.
[10:08:36] Gage takes point
[10:08:43] 2Lt. Aylanea looks around from near Jaron, frowning just a little at the caves.
[10:08:45] GM: You maneuver thru a tight spot, well tight for a Bioroid. and empty out into a 100 ft by 50 foot cavern.
[10:09:11] GM: there is a way to continue on to the east.
[10:09:14] 2nd Lt Vinai begins to lay down the mirrors as proposed. Counting a fixed interval of meters before each new placement.
[10:09:42] Gage moves along as they move along. "Just what your step everyone and avoid knocking things loose"
[10:10:08] Lt. Jaron: (err double typo, stupid finders)
[10:10:13] GM: Inside you can see some scattered debris of battle, (ancient battle) skeletal remains of karberrans and Invic (armor) litter the area.
[10:11:01] GM: Percs
[10:11:08] 2nd Lt Vinai: [1d20] =>  = (16)
[10:11:11] GM: and RSI's as you see fit.
[10:11:49] 2nd Lt Vinai: ((I'd only be doing comm checks after every mirror placement)).
[10:11:55] Lt. Jaron comments to Ay "You ok XO?" (perception [1d20+4] => [10,4] = (14), RSI [1d100] =>  = (85) vs 70)
[10:11:59] 2 LT Komillia: [1d20] =>  = (19) PERC [1d100] =>  = (54) vs 60 RSI
[10:11:59] 2Lt. Aylanea: [1d20] =>  = (12) perc, [1d100] =>  = (70) rsi vs.68%
[10:12:17] 2nd Lt Vinai: ((RSI btw is…what?))
[10:12:28] GM: ((Read Sensory Equipment))
[10:12:32] CWO2 Sarah: [1d20+1] => [15,1] = (16) perc, [1d100] =>  = (95) rsi vs. 70%
[10:12:34] 2nd Lt Vinai: ((oh))
[10:12:42] 2nd Lt Vinai: Skill Check: [1d100] =>  = (99)% vs skill of 78%
[10:12:50] 2nd Lt Vinai: ((bzzt))
[10:13:04] Lt. Ishida: [1d20+3] => [19,3] = (22) Perc [1d100] =>  = (86) RSI
[10:13:11] Gage: [1d20+2] => [11,2] = (13), detect ambush [1d100] =>  = (18) vs 55; RSI [1d100] =>  = (62) vs 55)
[10:13:20] KSN: ((Reminds GM about Summerwind's cabling idea as back up for mirrors sorry but couldn't stay out on this one))
[10:14:06] GM: Sarah, none of your characters notice much,
[10:14:35] GM: Vin, you set your mirrors and think you hear the lcank of metal to stone echoing.
[10:15:06] GM: Komillia, you hear the same, and detect that there is a waft of warmer air ahead.
[10:15:35] GM: Ishida, you hear …mining… but your sensors tell you nothing.
[10:15:35] CWO2 Sarah: ([1d100] =>  = (35) detect ambush vs. 75% and [1d100] =>  = (37) detect concealment vs. 70% as well)
[10:15:37] 2nd Lt Vinai paused for a moment. "Psst…hey. Sounds like company."
[10:16:11] GM: The noise seems to come from that circled area.
[10:17:23] 2 LT Komillia: Some type of machinery is ahead.
[10:17:38] Lt. Ishida nods.
[10:17:41] Lt. Ishida: Confirm.
[10:18:51] Lt. Jaron: "Alright, Ryu and XO, take a peek. We'll hold here"
[10:18:55] You must be a GM to use this feature
[10:19:13] Lt. Ishida nods and gives a thumbs up to Ryu.
[10:19:27] FO Ryu Hasegawa: (great cannon fodder)
[10:19:35] 2nd Lt Vinai pulls up a datapad and begins to drag things around until he pulls up what seems to be a strange application with vivid coloring. (Optical Systems to search for other thermal bodies in that direction)
[10:19:37] Lt. Jaron: (hehe Ay has your back)
[10:19:43] 2Lt. Aylanea nods quickly towards Jaron, moving up with Ryu, to creep up towards where the noise is.
[10:20:00] FO Ryu Hasegawa frowns and creeps forward
[10:27:28] GM: okay, Ryu, Ay, and Jaron, you move up towards the red circled area
[10:29:29] GM: okay moving on, Ryu and Ay, make whatever skill rolls you deem fit
[10:30:21] Gage motions Komillia and Gage to move up the left shaftway and looks to Vinai "Your mirror setup good to go?"
[10:30:33] Lt. Jaron: (dangit)
[10:30:35] Lt. Jaron motions Komillia and Gage to move up the left shaftway and looks to Vinai "Your mirror setup good to go?"
[10:30:44] FO Ryu Hasegawa: (I blame Jaron's leadership sending the rookie as point)
[10:31:10] Lt. Jaron: (its build character )
[10:31:35] GM: roll them rolls
[10:31:36] 2nd Lt Vinai nods lightly. "I'd try and take a peek…but LOS denies me through certain portions of items."
[10:31:39] FO Ryu Hasegawa: (I don’t have any applicable skills)
[10:31:42] KSN: ((did you actually think Marine Aviators only FLEW?!))
[10:31:45] 2 LT Komillia moves to the designated spot with a simple, "Roger."
[10:31:54] FO Ryu Hasegawa: (I'm not a Marine lol)
[10:32:13] GM: ((he's right, he's a fleet pussy, I mean pilot))
[10:32:27] KSN: ((oh yeah your gonna die))
[10:32:30] 2Lt. Aylanea: [1d100] =>  = (39) rsi 68%, [1d100] =>  = (47) land navigation65%, [1d20] =>  = (4) perc, [1d100] =>  = (20) int vs. 68%
[10:32:40] 2Lt. Aylanea: (( intel ))
[10:33:36] GM: Ay, you hear what you recognize from your TV watching days as the sound of pick ax's on stone. The ambient temp has raised to 60 degrees F, nav, you haven’t made a bad turn.
[10:34:18] Gage follows Komillia from behind as they head up the left shaftway
[10:34:35] FO Ryu Hasegawa: (anyways, prowl I guess)
[10:34:47] FO Ryu Hasegawa: [1d100] =>  = (84)
[10:34:55] FO Ryu Hasegawa: (nope, screwed)
[10:36:14] 2Lt. Aylanea: [1d100] =>  = (36) vs. 30%
[10:36:57] GM: You THINK you prowl well, as you enter a large cavern some 1000 x 100 feet in size.
[10:38:35] GM: It is populated by 40 some odd humanoids, human, Karberran, etc, all wearing only the bare minimum of clothing, and all are engaged in work. some, are hacking at the wall with pick axes others are loading the mined goods into carts which when full are sent along rails deeper into the cave network.
[10:42:22] 2Lt. Aylanea stares at what she sees, frowning slightly, and looking to the others. She mumbles into her helmet, keeping her voice down below the din of the activity outside it for the moment. "Was there any report of mining activity? If so, I don't remember it…"
[10:42:26] 2Lt. Aylanea: (( sorry, typiong ))
[10:42:45] 2Lt. Aylanea: (( and typing, and typoing, and… ))
[10:42:49] FO Ryu Hasegawa: "*keeps voice down* "they look like slaves"
[10:43:02] GM: percs
[10:43:09] 2Lt. Aylanea: [1d20] =>  = (19)
[10:43:42] FO Ryu Hasegawa: [1d20] =>  = (8)
[10:43:56] FO Ryu Hasegawa: (Bloody..)
[10:44:02] GM: All can roll since they can see the camera feed
[10:44:06] 2Lt. Aylanea: (( brb ))
[10:44:13] Lt. Jaron: [1d20+4] => [5,4] = (9)
[10:44:21] Gage: [1d20+3] => [16,3] = (19)
[10:44:49] 2nd Lt Vinai will be recording this, and preparing it for later purposes.
[10:44:54] 2nd Lt Vinai: [1d20] =>  = (13)
[10:45:18] GM: Ay, Vin, and Gage, you notice that some of the folks are wearing UEEF fatigues.
[10:45:21] Lt. Jaron replies back to Ay "I don’t recall." then asks " FIST unit, you copy?"
[10:45:41] Lt. Ishida: Hammer 1-1 copies all.
[10:46:04] Lt. Jaron asks "Do you remember any reports on mining going on in any reports?"
[10:46:09] 2nd Lt Vinai blinks slightly. "We have friendlies among them…identified as UEEF utilities.
[10:46:10] Lt. Ishida: Negative.
[10:46:31] CWO2 Sarah: [1d20+1] => [4,1] = (5)
[10:47:10] CWO2 Sarah: (( sorry, parent called for a moment. ))
[10:47:56] Lt. Jaron replies "Roger. Well there is workers up ahead, might be turn into rescue. So hold position" he thumbs Vinai "Head with Komillia and Gage, circle around"
[10:49:05] 2nd Lt Vinai nods slowly and with a rotation moves towards the pair preparing any scanning applications that may prove necessary on the face of his datapad. "Linking up."
[10:49:37] Lt. Ishida: If those eta are tagged, moving them might alert the enemy.
[10:50:06] Lt. Ishida: That said. Those are our men out there…we need to get them back.
[10:50:09] Lt. Jaron replies to Suki "The are people Lt, not low level subjects."
[10:50:31] Lt. Ishida rolls her eyes.
[10:50:33] Lt. Ishida: Of course
[10:51:06] Lt. Jaron nods to Vinai as he moves out and moves to Ryu & Ay.
[10:52:16] 2nd Lt Vinai: ((Chris I want to roll Optics using polarization to search for sources of electricity other than the main lines that maybe feeding whatever light sources are present))
[10:52:32] Lt. Jaron: (hehe well you are with Suki so I figured you was happy but me thinking)
[10:53:11] GM: Some 25 minutes later Gage, Vin and Komi move to where you need them and encounter an open, and abandoned area
[10:53:32] GM: Roll it
[10:53:49] 2nd Lt Vinai looks around. "If there is an alarm…it would have to be electronically powered. Hold up a sec." Fiddles around sliding his finger like a ice skater across the touch scree.
[10:53:58] 2nd Lt Vinai: Skill Check: [1d100] =>  = (83)% vs skill of 63% Optical System
[10:54:09] 2nd Lt Vinai shakes his head. "Don’t' see anything."
[10:54:11] CWO2 Sarah glances to Suki. "We'll just need to find out if they are marked, somehow, then. And what hold they have to keep them working… did you see any sign of any Haydonites in among the workers?"
[10:54:18] GM: And that ice skater biffs it and busts her upper lip
[10:54:22] Lt. Jaron moves up to Ryu & Ay "FIST unit move up to fork, I have my team split at the moment."
[10:54:49] GM: ((mark exactly where you want your FIST.))
[10:55:02] 2nd Lt Vinai: ((*Giggity*))
[10:55:12] Rayn: ((Bwahahah))
[10:55:13] GM: ((lol))
[10:55:22] GM: ((Awww right))
[10:55:24] Lt. Jaron replies to Vinai "Ok, keeping moving. You should hit the area with miners in a moment" (the green x, our former spot)
[10:55:46] Lt. Ishida: Hammer 1-1 in position.
[10:56:16] GM: Your rear (giggity) and flanks is protected Jaron.
[10:56:47] GM: Vin you enter the area and see first hand slave labor in action
[10:57:05] GM: It's pretty fucked up, but damn efficient
[10:57:34] GM: You also see no 'Overlords' around
[10:57:45] Gage tails Vinai at the moment and notices the miner "dang"
[10:58:11] GM: ((miner(s)))
[10:58:13] Rayn: ((yw *salute))
[10:58:19] 2nd Lt Vinai: "Are you getting all this up there? I'll make sure the PR team gets a load of this." Max shook his head. Exploitation at it's worst. "Why don't they even move?"
[10:58:22] Rayn: ((afk bio break))
[10:58:30] GM: ((suck it *returns salute))
[10:59:18] Lt. Jaron radios "No clue. Run various scans. Sarah I need your senses up here"
[10:59:22] GM: Okay, so you are in the chamber, the slaves are mining, but none seem to give you the time of day, all seem focused on their work.
[10:59:55] GM: Roll perc
[11:00:04] Rayn: ((back))
[11:00:13] 2 LT Komillia looks to see if she can see anything that might suggest an neural-implant not an antenna. [1d20] =>  = (20) PERC
[11:00:22] 2nd Lt Vinai comms up. "I'll try…I'm not very proficient with medical equipment…perhaps I should take a B Billet eh?"
[11:00:22] GM: Wow
[11:00:25] 2nd Lt Vinai: [1d20] =>  = (2)
[11:00:48] 2nd Lt Vinai: ((Underground Squirrel? Squirrelhog!))
[11:00:54] 2 LT Komillia: ((Forget it, if there is something to see Komi will find it.))
[11:01:32] GM: Komillia, you see NO indication of implants or any mechanical collusion. Something else is at work here. Something, beyond implants or mechanical means.
[11:02:01] GM: Rayn!!!!! OMG!!!!
[11:02:22] 2 LT Komillia: Lt. Amdahl can powerful psis control this many people?
[11:02:24] Rayn: ((?!))
[11:02:57] Rayn: (( maybe its Rayn with a BIG ARSE Whip around the corner ))
[11:03:21] GM: Rayn…you feel a presence, close to you…you resist, but, the voice in your head says. 'Kill any who approach you not of Haydon!" You…feel compelled to obey.
[11:03:22] CWO2 Sarah umms… "Depends on the power level. I'm not familiar with it outside of the Invid, but if something were done to them to make them particularly receptive to mental control, or they had something with enough power, anything is possible I guess…"
[11:03:42] Rayn: Percept?
[11:04:27] Rayn attacks with pick axe [1d20+1] => [18,1] = (19)
[11:04:40] Rayn: ((Giggity))
[11:05:02] Rayn first enemy closest
[11:05:09] Gage: [1d20+3] => [15,3] = (18)
[11:06:06] GM: Komillia, you are SUPRISED… and as you are inspecting a fine specimen of manhood, the miner turns on you without warning with his pick ax and hits you, HARD!
[11:06:31] Rayn looks for additional pick axe while striking (WP Paired Wpns)
[11:06:39] CWO2 Sarah: (( kekeke. sillyKomi. ))
[11:07:17] GM: The pick does not, in fact cannot, penetrate your Cyclone, but, damn , the strenght of the miner mus be immense, as the impact puts you on your ass!!!
[11:07:22] Rayn: ((pick axe dmg?))
[11:07:35] Rayn: ((oh kk))
[11:07:54] 2 LT Komillia: Well, hello to you too.
[11:08:05] CWO2 Sarah: (( LOL ))
[11:08:19] GM: Rayn, the interloper did not perish! Your directive is clear, you must defeat it. Or barring that, call for an Overlord!!!!
[11:08:32] Gage aims his M90 at the miner "Drop the pick mister!"
[11:08:47] GM: Gage, the miner ignores you.
[11:09:01] GM: Roll a perc Gage
[11:09:02] Rayn attempts to entangle helmet and tear pry off
[11:09:10] 2nd Lt Vinai drops to one knee and reaches behind his back drawing his white and black knives. "I don't think it's that simple Gage…"
[11:09:10] Rayn: [1d20] =>  = (9)
[11:09:23] GM: Komi you may resist.
[11:09:28] 2 LT Komillia gets back up and proceeds to try for a knock out punch (disabling any MDC systems). [1d20+6] => [6,6] = (12)
[11:09:47] Rayn: [1d20+2] => [3,2] = (5)
[11:09:50] Rayn parry
[11:09:58] GM: Komi, roll damage,
[11:10:18] 2 LT Komillia: ((trying to find what that would be, hold on.))
[11:10:32] Gage frowns and lowers his M90 "Yea, darnit"
[11:10:38] Lt. Ishida chomps at the bit, but, hold her position.
[11:10:40] Rayn: ((Cyclone Power Punch is only MD))
[11:10:47] Lt. Jaron radios "Avoid killing the miner"
[11:10:59] CWO2 Sarah: (( yes, but cyclone is a higher PS than wearer ))
[11:11:09] Lt. Jaron radios "Suki, give them backup"
[11:11:35] Lt. Ishida: Hitman 1-1, do you require assistance?
[11:11:43] Lt. Ishida: Roger that!!!!
[11:11:51] Lt. Ishida: Hammer 1-2 on me.
[11:12:03] CWO2 Sarah glances to Suki quickly. "Hmm… If we go there, should I try to see if I can snap them out of it?" She forms up to head there. "Roger."
[11:12:13] Lt. Ishida engages her VR-057's thrusters and books it!
[11:12:36] CWO2 Sarah does as well, to keep up
[11:12:57] GM: Komi, waiting on the damage
[11:13:12] GM: Suki and Sarah are three melee attack out
[11:13:15] 2 LT Komillia: [2d4] => [1,2] = (3) (Restrained, for SDC… I hope this is the right damage)
[11:13:43] Rayn attempts Body Flip/Throw of enemy (Cyclone and All - Rayn and throw 800+ lbs) onto the next nearest 'enemy'…
[11:13:44] Rayn: [1d20+1] => [20,1] = (21)
[11:13:55] Rayn: (HOLY SHIT!!))
[11:14:00] 2 LT Komillia: [1d20] =>  = (14)
[11:14:07] GM: Komi, you are both proud and sad, You indeed do minimal damage, but, so much so that the massive enemy would feel it as a mosquito bite
[11:14:08] 2 LT Komillia: ((And I'm flipped.))
[11:14:14] CWO2 Sarah: (( kekekekeke ))
[11:14:36] Rayn: ((MUWAHAHAHAHHA HULK SMASH))
[11:14:56] GM: And the fleshy man handles you! Roughly!!! No lube! Done! On your ass!
[11:15:19] GM: Roll damage half it Rayn
[11:15:27] Rayn sprints towards third nearest 'enemy' ROARING!
[11:15:31] Rayn: [1d20+1] => [7,1] = (8)
[11:15:34] Gage avoids the flying Komillia and tries to kick the miner backwards and away from them (to strike [1d20+8] => [17,8] = (25))
[11:15:38] 2nd Lt Vinai dashes in from his stance and performs a dual strike rotating cyclonically raising each blade upward in a windmill type fashion (2x strike with knives)
[11:15:57] Rayn simultaneous attack
[11:16:01] Rayn: [1d20+1] => [12,1] = (13)
[11:16:08] 2nd Lt Vinai: ((I guess I'll intercept Rayn))
[11:16:12] GM: Slow down, Vin, give the man a chance to reply to Gage's attack.
[11:16:26] Rayn Body block (btw)
[11:16:36] 2nd Lt Vinai: ((wha? most of the combat flew past me lol.))
[11:16:51] GM: No prob, give me a sec
[11:17:09] 2nd Lt Vinai: ((withholds his attack until after Gage's strike))
[11:17:55] GM: Rayn, you and Gage collide. Gage, your strike kicks the crazed miner into the wall, Ggae, you are struck dead center by a pick and are sent backwards a few feet.
[11:18:12] GM: roll damage both of you
[11:18:25] Gage: damage [2d6+16] => [6,3,16] = (25)
[11:18:27] Rayn: ((no simultaneous attack?))
[11:18:39] GM: It is, that’s why I need damage from BOTH
[11:18:51] Gage: (sdc damage)
[11:19:13] GM: Rayn, you take 25 SD, tis but a scratch!!
[11:19:59] GM: Suki and Sarah, 1 attack away, you have entered the chamber and see the melee ahead of you…
[11:20:10] Gage radios as he moves a bit "This miner is crazed and build like a bearman. Probably tougher"
[11:20:14] CWO2 Sarah: (( yay! ))
[11:21:29] Rayn: [1d6+18] => [6,18] = (24)
[11:21:33] Rayn: SDC
[11:21:47] GM: Gage, the miners counter, well fuck…hurts!
[11:21:55] GM: ((half the total))
[11:22:54] Rayn tries to ascertain weakest enemy
[11:23:12] Rayn Rayn shall satisfy his masters command!!
[11:23:28] Gage rolls with the blow the best he can as an instinct (roll with impact [1d20+10) "Crap I felt that"
[11:23:34] Gage: [1d20+10] => [13,10] = (23)
[11:23:35] GM: Init roll for all involved, Gage, Rayn, Komi, and whoever else is in range (not you Suki ri Sarah, not yet))
[11:23:51] Rayn: [1d20+1] => [4,1] = (5)
[11:23:56] 2 LT Komillia: [1d20+1] => [11,1] = (12)
[11:23:59] GM: ((Gage, I'll take that as a strike, but roll init
[11:24:13] 2nd Lt Vinai: [1d20+2] => [3,2] = (5)
[11:24:26] GM: Rayn first, (higher nat roll)
[11:24:28] Gage: [1d20+7] => [19,7] = (26)
[11:24:40] Gage: (that first roll with roll with impact)
[11:24:50] Rayn tries to ascertain weakest enemy and attacks
[11:24:58] GM: ((kk, 7 sd total))
[11:25:15] GM: It is difficult, all are armored!!!
[11:25:35] GM: All seem to be wearing similar armor!
[11:25:44] GM: Curse those humans!
[11:25:51] Rayn uses pick to leg sweep closest 'enemy'
[11:25:55] Rayn: [1d20+1] => [18,1] = (19)
[11:26:03] GM: Which would be Komi
[11:26:12] GM: Komi…evade!
[11:26:33] 2 LT Komillia simultaneous attack with her restrained fist. [1d20+6] => [15,6] = (21)
[11:26:45] 2nd Lt Vinai: ((Guess I've got a while since I'm at the bottom of the list ~_~))
[11:27:01] GM: Oh ho ho! Komi, you tap the thrusters a tad and the take down is negated!!!!
[11:27:11] 2 LT Komillia: [2d4] => [2,1] = (3)
[11:27:15] GM: Vin, your go!
[11:27:46] 2 LT Komillia: ((It was a simultaneous attack not a dodge.))
[11:28:35] 2nd Lt Vinai pauses momentarily to try and pin the large man's feet to the earthen floor. (2x called shots…foot?)
[11:28:47] 2nd Lt Vinai: ((Throwing knives))
[11:28:56] GM: Roll it baybee
[11:28:58] 2 LT Komillia: ((and in case you think that is impossible, it's a simple matter of deliberately falling TOWARD the attacker.))
[11:29:19] GM: ((koff bullshit! koff))
[11:29:28] 2nd Lt Vinai: ((what's the minus on called shots?))
[11:29:30] Rayn: ((fall with one foot roll and kick with the other imo))
[11:29:49] GM: You need to roll a 12 or higher naturally
[11:30:00] 2nd Lt Vinai: Ranged Attack Roll: [1d20+2] => [2,2] = (4)
[11:30:34] GM: So, you miss…
[11:31:52] GM: Komi, your go!
[11:32:05] GM: Then Suki and Sarah get to roll their inits and enter combat
[11:32:22] Lt. Ishida: [1d20+5] => [1,5] = (6)
[11:32:33] GM: Well poop lol
[11:32:35] 2 LT Komillia will just PIN the bastard. [1d20+6] => [18,6] = (24) ((or whatever the actual bonus should be))
[11:32:53] GM: Rayn, an armored person tried to pin you!!!
[11:32:54] Rayn parry
[11:32:56] Rayn: [1d20+1] => [14,1] = (15)
[11:33:12] GM: Boom! You is be pinned Rayn!
[11:33:16] Rayn: oops
[11:33:19] GM: Sarah, init?
[11:33:24] 2 LT Komillia: Alright someone knock the guy out or something already.
[11:33:39] CWO2 Sarah: [1d20+3] => [12,3] = (15)
[11:33:45] CWO2 Sarah: (( kk ))
[11:34:14] GM: Okay, init is as follows, Rayn, Gage, Suki, Sarah, Komi! Go!
[11:34:17] Gage moves into the step on the miners head with his nice big cyclone boot (what a roll to hit?)
[11:34:26] Rayn: [1d20+1] => [9,1] = (10)
[11:34:29] Gage: (interrupt!)
[11:34:43] GM: Roll strike Gage
[11:34:51] 2nd Lt Vinai: ((HOLD IT! sorry Just finished playing Ace Attorney lmao))
[11:35:02] Gage: [1d20+8] => [2,8] = (10)
[11:35:31] GM: Sorry, Vin is after Gage
[11:35:40] GM: Rayn you may parry
[11:35:44] Rayn throw mecha off —- Bench press style - at striking opponent (Gage)
[11:35:46] GM: or dodge, or, whatever
[11:35:51] Rayn: [1d20+1] => [4,1] = (5)
[11:35:56] Rayn: ouch
[11:35:59] Gage: [2d6+16] => [6,3,16] = (25)
[11:36:05] 2 LT Komillia: ((How does a pinned unit DODGE?))
[11:36:17] Gage: (move his head)
[11:36:20] Rayn: (moves head)
[11:36:22] CWO2 Sarah: (( it was an attempt to throw a mecha off/parry ))
[11:36:28] GM: Rayn you are unsuccessful!!! You take 25 pernts to SDC!
[11:36:29] Rayn: yep
[11:36:41] GM: Suki, you go
[11:36:51] Gage: (well regardless you tough mofo)
[11:37:30] FO Ryu Hasegawa: (brb)
[11:37:43] Lt. Ishida pulls her Katana, and goes for a KO with the hilt. [1d20+11[
[11:37:52] Lt. Ishida: [1d20+11] => [15,11] = (26)
[11:38:01] Rayn: (pull is one melee action)
[11:38:06] Lt. Jaron watching the feed and comments to Ryu and Ay "Take note, avoid getting lose to miners"
[11:38:31] Lt. Jaron: (lose=close)
[11:38:32] 2nd Lt Vinai: ((she also may have 2 melee attacks her turn))
[11:38:57] GM: Rayn, your defense move.
[11:39:08] 2Lt. Aylanea nods. "Acknowledged…"
[11:39:09] Rayn ignores new attacker and attempts to disarm pinning enemy (Komillia of a MD weapon)
[11:39:11] Rayn: [1d20+1] => [8,1] = (9)
[11:39:16] GM: Pop!
[11:39:22] GM: Rayn, all goes black!
[11:39:44] Rayn: (thought natural 18 19 or 20 only on KO gm?)
[11:39:58] GM: ((thats even if not called))
[11:39:59] Lt. Jaron: (KOs can be called shots)
[11:40:07] FO Ryu Hasegawa: [1d8] =>  = (2)
[11:40:22] FO Ryu Hasegawa: (sorry bumped)
[11:40:25] GM: ((so long as she rolled naturally above 12))
[11:40:32] FO Ryu Hasegawa: (brb)
[11:40:46] GM: The massive miner collapses.
[11:41:04] Rayn: (*sigh bother would have acted differently then oh well)
[11:41:21] Rayn: (at least I threw Komi twice )
[11:41:28] 2nd Lt Vinai stands up and relaxes from stance, walking over to pick up his white knife, sliding both back into their holsters on his back.
[11:41:32] Lt. Ishida points to Sarah.
[11:41:41] Lt. Jaron breaths a little easier "Check for any markings and such on the miner while you are at it"
[11:41:46] Lt. Ishida: On me, we'll cover the entrance to this cavern.
[11:42:31] Rayn: (GM 1D4 on how long I'm down?)
[11:42:42] Lt. Ishida: [1d4] =>  = (3)
[11:42:45] CWO2 Sarah nods quickly at that. "Acknowledged…." She raises her eyebrows then. "We still don't know what's controlling him, though…" she ponders a bit.
[11:42:46] 2 LT Komillia releases the pin and gets up and goes over to guard the entrance.
[11:43:15] Rayn: (k let me know IF and when I can start raging again)
[11:43:28] Gage readies his M90 again "Komillia, what is with you and picking the wrong guys lately?"
[11:43:50] GM: Rayn, enough to be out until these 'interlopers get you back to their lair!!!
[11:43:59] Rayn: (wonders if anyone noticed I just body flipped a battloid cyclone )
[11:44:08] 2 LT Komillia responds with a despondent, "Karma."
[11:44:09] Rayn: (without penalty)
[11:44:42] CWO2 Sarah: (( that's nice ))
[11:44:46] CWO2 Sarah: (( klekekekeke ))
[11:44:50] Gage radios "Secure the miner and we'll head back. Vinai, setup some cameras"
[11:44:53] GM: Komi, Suki, Sarah, etc, you are in position, who takes uber boy back to base?
[11:45:43] Lt. Jaron replies "Agreed Gage. You watch over Vinai, rest fallback"
[11:45:52] 2nd Lt Vinai ponders for a second and nods. "Sure thing…" As requested will begin to set up video equipment around the cave.
[11:46:02] 2 LT Komillia: ((Truthfully, and I should have said something sooner, that throw PROBABLY shouldn't have happened, considering I'm in a Devastator weighing 3200 pounds, not 600.))
[11:46:20] Lt. Jaron: (leverage?)
[11:46:29] 2nd Lt Vinai: ((Komi…enjoy the fact you were absurdly man-handled.))
[11:46:31] Lt. Ishida: Hammer 1-1 plus 1 holding at entrance.
[11:46:41] 2 LT Komillia: ((No.))
[11:47:13] CWO2 Sarah shrugs and just settles back into position.
[11:47:30] Lt. Jaron replies to Suki "As you wish." and ponders a moment
[11:47:50] GM: We'll go with it as a demonstrative example of how physically strong this guy is.
[11:48:24] GM: Every one needs a cool entrance and all…
[11:48:27] GM: so
[11:49:01] 2nd Lt Vinai after several moments of linking and activating video feeds to his pad, he then works to create a live feed amongst the cameras. (Comp Operation?)
[11:49:41] 2 LT Komillia: ((In other words a one-shot adrenaline rush, I can live with that.))
[11:49:51] Lt. Jaron: "Change of plans. Gage and Ay, take the miner back. FIST; we are circling around the miners and then movin back to fire base another route. Confirm?"
[11:50:23] 2Lt. Aylanea glances up. "Acknowledged…"
[11:50:25] GM: Those who bring the crazed miner back help strap him down , and soon he wakens, and begins to pitch a fit before he his pumped with powerful sedatives.
[11:50:55] Lt. Ishida: Roger that, Hammer 1-1 holding position.
[11:51:02] Gage does so
[11:51:37] 1stSgt Walken: Shee-IT! What the mo frakkin hell is that!?
[11:52:54] Lt. Jaron looks to the XO "A miner. He was like a crazed body builder. Touch around our devastator"
[11:52:58] 1stSgt Walken: Send you out on recon, and you bring back a damned bigfoot!
[11:53:23] Lt. Jaron: (touch=toss…I have lost my typing skills)
[11:53:28] 1stSgt Walken: S'wrong with you!
[11:53:50] 1stSgt Walken: Crazy ass Gyrenes!
[11:54:20] 2Lt. Aylanea laughs a little and shrugs slightly. "Sorry…."
[11:54:44] Gage nods
[11:55:37] Rayn mutters in slurred English … 'Must obey…"
[11:55:39] Gage: (also, the last two replies where for gage not Jaron. Im out of sync apparently tonight)
[11:55:42] 2Lt. Aylanea pats the giant idly. "Too good a catch to throw back."
[11:56:49] GM: The medics sedate him, and he is brought to the surface (Artemis).
[11:57:01] Rayn still murmuring "… must destroy all those not of Haydon…." then succumbs.
[11:57:28] GM: Some time passes as Rayn awakens, but no longer feels compelled to violence.
[11:57:41] Rayn: (Hulk friend)
[11:58:22] GM: Roll a d20 Rayn
[11:58:45] Rayn: [1d20] =>  = (5)
[11:59:02] GM: But, he still does feel compelled to mine.
[11:59:26] GM: Percs those who brought him back
[11:59:27] Rayn …. Work will set you free
[11:59:35] Rayn: ( lol sorry)
[11:59:37] FO Ryu Hasegawa: (we can fall back as well right?)
[11:59:47] GM: Arbite macht frie!
[11:59:50] Gage: [1d20+3] => [18,3] = (21)
[12:00:11] GM: Gage, you notice dog tags.
[12:00:23] Lt. Jaron: (change in plans, rest are circling around after Vinai setup cameras)
[12:00:40] Gage points to something "He has dogtags"
[12:00:43] GM: ((gotta be fast ))
[12:01:00] FO Ryu Hasegawa: (wait we cant?)
[12:01:03] Gage slows goes to reach for them
[12:01:41] Rayn …. mutters "Only those who serve Haydon are deserving of rest"…
[12:02:34] GM: Gage, you retrieve them and they read "Masun Raihan: UEMC: PFC: Blood Type AB"
[12:02:45] 2Lt. Aylanea shrugs at the giant. "I wouldn't quite call your position resting."
[12:03:07] FO Ryu Hasegawa: "Looks like he hit you guys pretty hard"
[12:03:19] FO Ryu Hasegawa: [1d4] =>  = (3)
[12:03:26] FO Ryu Hasegawa: (gah)
[12:03:35] Gage hands them to the sergeant "Have someone check these"
[12:04:01] GM: In time his bona fides are checked.
[12:04:49] GM: He is listed as a PFC, part of a unit last stationed on Tirol. But the disturbing part is, he is Ex Shadow Squadron.
[12:05:05] GM: Percs
[12:05:10] 2Lt. Aylanea: [1d20] =>  = (7)
[12:05:13] Rayn: ((O.o))
[12:05:18] FO Ryu Hasegawa: [1d20] =>  = (4)
[12:05:24] Gage: [1d20+3] => [19,3] = (22)
[12:06:42] 2Lt. Aylanea: (( wow Gage! ))
[12:06:45] 2Lt. Aylanea: (( awesome ))
[12:06:48] GM: Gage, you recognize the term. You were forced to read the UEEF manual on enlistment, and, there was an entire chapter devoted to the Edwards Coup. His unit, was Shadow Squadron.
[12:07:27] Rayn: ((O.o and the mystery deepens!))
[12:07:39] Maj. Kavashera enters,
[12:07:48] Maj. Kavashera looks over the tags.
[12:08:04] Gage lets the Major have them
[12:08:09] Maj. Kavashera: Well well well. Looks like we have a traitor amongst us.
[12:08:40] Maj. Kavashera: Hold him fast. This we need to phone up.
[12:09:35] Rayn … softly mutters to self "There is no escape - your friends and family have abandoned all hope of you… serving Haydon is now your LIFE!…
[12:09:57] Gage quirks a brow
[12:10:09] Maj. Kavashera: Somebody hit him with a few more cc's f whatever it is that knock you humans out.
TO BE CONTINUED…
