[07:43:55] GM: Jaron and Sarah have seen what they have seen. The body is dragged off the mine cart and some other slaves ingloriously drag the carcass to a cistern and dump the body down into it.
[07:44:58] GM: A nearby Reaver points towards the nearby collection point, clearly indicating that you should empty the mine carts contents there.
[07:45:15] Lt. Jaron starts pushing that way
[07:45:33] CWO2 Sarah starts pushing the cart for the collection point right in time with Jaron.
[07:46:35] Lt. Jaron is glad it a little warmer here
[07:48:00] GM: You arrive at the collection point and dump the ore off. Other slaves shovel it into larger containers then push and heave them onto the platforms as if moving a granite block destined for the Giza Pyramids.
[07:48:45] GM: Let me know what else aside from slaving away, that you are doing, and no sweating doesn’t count.
[07:49:47] Lt. Jaron: (other rails to push out?)
[07:50:03] GM: Yes
[07:50:03] CWO2 Sarah watches while inbound for where the other slaves left towards after dumping off, to start pushing the cart there, and tries to notice from the edges of peripheral vision where they might be able to approach as 'slaves' to plant anything to disrupt the operation later on if needed.
[07:50:19] GM: Perc Sarah
[07:50:31] CWO2 Sarah: [1d20+1] => [9,1] = (10)
[07:50:37] CWO2 Sarah: (( aww hehe ))
[07:52:18] GM: Maybe it's the sweat in your eye but you don’t see any place that screams 'Plant Explosive Device Here.' however you do notice that along one of the walls are modern and state of the art mining gear, power drills, jackhammers, and power loaders, all of which is coated in a fine layer of dust (all are sized for Karberrans) all look brand new.
[07:53:30] Lt. Jaron slaves away (how heavy is this place guarded again)
[07:53:39] GM: Iron clad
[07:53:45] GM: Roll a perc
[07:53:51] Lt. Jaron: [1d20+4] => [13,4] = (17)
[07:54:57] CWO2 Sarah slaves away as well, otherwise, noticing the equipment and avoiding narrowing her eyes, as she puts on her work act.
[07:57:24] GM: The area for one, is well lit, not the craptastic orange flicker lights in the tunnels. Bright halogen lamps illuminate the entire cavern, and might explain the ambient heat. There is a sublevel along the walls, the cavern ringed in catwalks. The level mount what you figure would be foreman offices, and control centers. The cat walk is patrolled by Light Reavers, from your vantage point you can count 20 or so. (dt)
[07:58:10] GM: Ground level is teeming with activity, besides the slaves, there are some 50 or so Haydonites milling about supervising and operating machinery clearly not of Karberran origin.
[07:58:39] GM: A pair of Revenants have nestled themselves high up onto the walls like overlarge mechanical spiders.
[07:59:25] GM: Roll another perc
[07:59:29] Lt. Jaron: [1d20+4] => [19,4] = (23)
[08:01:12] GM: It would seem that slaves are not allowed on the catwalks as you see none up there. (rest in whisper)
[08:06:13] Lt. Jaron takes a mental picture of what he saw and goes back to slavin'
[08:06:24] GM: [1d20] =>  = (5)
[08:06:49] GM: You slave away, and are directed to return to the tunnels to gather more ore.
[08:07:27] CWO2 Sarah keeps slaving as she tries to notice anything more as well, on the way to the tunnels. [1d20+1] => [20,1] = (21) (perc to notice anything more on the way out)
[08:07:42] GM: Sarah on your way out, in whisper
[08:14:42] GM: Do you see the marks Carrie?
[08:15:02] CWO2 Sarah: (( yes ))
[08:15:06] GM: ((kk))
[08:15:07] CWO2 Sarah: (( hehe ))
[08:15:22] GM: [1d4] =>  = (3)
[08:16:13] GM: It takes you three full trips back from the tunnels into the cavern and back out again, to get close to where you arrived (those industrious slaves filled your cart up before you could, get away)
[08:17:06] GM: However, as you return to your exfiltration point you notice that there are a pair of guards, but no slaves further down the tunnel.
[08:18:08] 2nd Lt Vinai attempts to patch through. "Spooki this is Hi-Fi…"
[08:18:30] Lt. Jaron lowers his head down as he pushes to cover his mouth and hopefully muffle "Need help at xfil"
[08:19:06] GM: ((kk)) hold here lets go to the FOB
[08:20:21] Lt. Ishida is sitting seiza in her cyclone, fully loaded out, her helmet is in front of her and the thrusters are idleing, giving off a faint heat shimmer.
[08:20:36] Lt. Ishida without opening her eyes, Suki replies.
[08:20:44] Lt. Ishida: I can hear you Lieutenant.
[08:20:46] 2nd Lt Vinai sits at a desk with multiple monitors with various labels, all of which are seamlessly streaming into his datapad like a security guard watching over Closed Circuit surveillance.
[08:21:17] Lt. Jaron takes in glimpse at Sarah, taking in her beauty as he feels this might be their end
[08:21:30] Lt. Ishida feels a disturbance in the force.
[08:21:33] Gage is beside Suki, ready to following her
[08:21:34] CWO2 Sarah: (( lol ))
[08:22:07] 2nd Lt Vinai: "Well…unfortunately…it seems we're stuck here, albeit for different reasons. However, I've come up with a way to not be such a slag of useless circuitry parts. However, I kinda need your permission to invade your private video codec."
[08:22:07] Lt. Jaron coughs and sputters out "Soon"
[08:22:25] Lt. Ishida: Why?
[08:22:46] 2nd Lt Vinai: "Two words: Perfect…Sight…"
[08:22:50] Lt. Ishida: ((tunnel naked folks, wait, let me handle this, and synch the teams up))
[08:22:58] CWO2 Sarah: (( kk ))
[08:23:10] Lt. Ishida: Explain.
[08:24:56] 2nd Lt Vinai: "Well, in my boredom, I got sick of looking at over 40 different video feeds through several monitors. Well I aptly time synced them and in a way real-time spliced them into one field of view. Almost like…Omniscience. I can look through one monitor and see 40 different angles at the same time. Sorta like how an insect view the world."
[08:25:29] Lt. Ishida: I'm sure the Invid would be proud.
[08:26:09] 2nd Lt Vinai: "My hypothesis is…with your permission, I can give you real-time visual data from the four major points of view without sacrificing the blind spot for each perspective."
[08:26:34] 2nd Lt Vinai: "Ergo, allowing you to possibly react and move individuals without them realizing they saw what you saw."
[08:26:59] Lt. Ishida: Proceed.
[08:27:16] Lt. Ishida replies, all while sitting motionless in a quasi meditative state.
[08:28:23] 2nd Lt Vinai: Acknowledged. Now tagging! Point! Rear Guard! Left Flank! Right Flank! Initiating video override of Callsign Spooki!
[08:29:18] 2nd Lt Vinai almost appearedly like little Washu with his hands vividly gracing across the touch screen gliding and shifting of various smaller screens.
[08:29:32] 2nd Lt Vinai: ((Suki's video feed would go black for the syncing.))
[08:29:46] GM: Roll Programming and Optics
[08:30:32] Gage: (dont fubar)
[08:30:44] 2nd Lt Vinai: ((would I be allowed to take the 50 due to not being in a stressful situation? Or is it because I'm doing multiple things at once?))
[08:31:07] Gage: (take 50, this is D&D)
[08:31:15] Gage: (now?)
[08:31:19] GM: The take 50 was to get you to this point, you've done your concept and beta, now you are trying to apply it, where there IS a risk of failure
[08:31:30] 2nd Lt Vinai: ((true…ok rolling!))
[08:31:36] 2nd Lt Vinai: ((First the Programming))
[08:31:58] 2nd Lt Vinai: Skill Check: [1d100] =>  = (6)% vs skill of 69%
[08:32:06] 2nd Lt Vinai: CHA!
[08:32:09] GM: ((sorta Ted, for stuff like this yeah, because really, you are a computer whiz and you roll a 100 to do something simple? kinda lame)
[08:32:42] 2nd Lt Vinai: ((now for the Optics…Opting to spend the point for auto 1%))
[08:32:43] GM: ((some stuff like, switching frequency or something like that I wont even make you roll, because really..))
[08:32:54] Gage: (oh simple stuff…gotcha. Usually just say no roll is needed)
[08:33:02] GM: And it is Brilliant Success.
[08:33:27] 2nd Lt Vinai sits back and shakes his head. "Open your eyes Suki…welcome…to Perfect Sight."
[08:34:16] Lt. Ishida puts her helmet on and interrogates the HUD. After a few minutes of adjusting personal preferences, opacity, position, etc, she smiles under the gold tinted visor.
[08:35:09] Lt. Ishida: Well done Lieutenant.
[08:35:37] 2nd Lt Vinai laughs lightly. "It's what I do ma'am….It's what I do…"
[08:35:57] GM: ((When this system is in use, it will confer a +4 initiative, but there will be some drawbacks due to distance etc, to maintain game balance.))
[08:36:55] 2nd Lt Vinai: ((That's cool.. just tryin to revolutionize leader abilities. I'll come up with some more cool stuff for everyone else lol))
[08:37:43] GM: ((Nod, I see this is a scaled down C&C function that the H Alpha possesses.
[08:38:14] 2nd Lt Vinai: ((What…I have no idea what your speaking about >.> *shifts glance slightly*))
[08:39:37] GM: ((lets make that a +2 Init))
[08:39:40] GM: okay
[08:39:53] 2nd Lt Vinai sat back in his chair. Experiment success. "Even if I can't fight as well as everyone else. Atleast I can make those who can fight better…"
[08:40:31] GM: ((now, since this is new, familiarity will be an issue, and I can see how this can become real confusing in combat so, I'll think on it and assign stats later))
[08:42:10] Lt. Utenaru: Hammer 1-1, Backstop 1-2, our infiltrators need a helping hand. Care to assist?
[08:42:30] Lt. Ishida: Hammer 1-1 copies. Moving.
[08:42:47] Lt. Ishida turns to Vinny. "Lieutenant, on me."
[08:43:04] Gage moves up to follow
[08:43:14] Lt. Ishida relieves one of the FOB Marines of his sniper rifle.
[08:43:23] Lt. Ishida: I'm going to borrow this.
[08:43:47] UEMC LCpl.: What the fuck…shit, I want that back!
[08:44:24] Gage pats that corporal on the soldier "Best wish her well."
[08:44:35] GM: Due to the guards Jaron and Sarah, you have to make anOTHER [1d4] =>  = (4) trips back and forth.
[08:45:08] Lt. Jaron: (oh oh my feet)
[08:45:47] 2nd Lt Vinai nods lightly arming himself with his H-90. "Roger that…ready when you are."
[08:46:06] CWO2 Sarah: (( mine too ))
[08:46:11] Gage: (umm shoulder, not soldier)
[08:46:35] Lt. Ishida: Hammer 1-1 to backstop, is Spoiler 1 free and clear (Sadrine) (Out of a 100% she is avail on a roll of 15 or under [1d100] =>  = (30))
[08:46:53] CWO2 Sarah: (( lol. Yeah, soldier could be easily misinterpreted. ))
[08:47:04] Gage: (hehe)
[08:47:05] Lt. Utenaru: Negative 1-1, Toasters are still scratching at the back door.
[08:48:59] GM: Gage, Vin, and Suki pass up the elements of 2nd platoon, that escorted Jaron and Sarah up, and take near your combat zone. Roll prowl.
[08:49:15] Lt. Ishida: [1d100] =>  = (97)
[08:49:28] 2nd Lt Vinai: [1d100] =>  = (51)
[08:49:30] Haydonite Reaver: [1d100] =>  = (25)
[08:49:49] Haydonite Reaver: ((ignore last Haydonite roll))
[08:49:52] Haydonite Reaver: [1d20+4] => [6,4] = (10)
[08:49:53] Haydonite Reaver: [1d20+4] => [13,4] = (17)
[08:50:02] CWO2 Sarah: (( there is subtle, and there is Suki. lol. ))
[08:50:09] Haydonite Reaver: You hear that?
[08:50:10] Gage: [1d100] =>  = (26) vs 55
[08:50:18] Haydonite Reaver: Hear what?
[08:50:35] Haydonite Reaver: Tactics [1d100] =>  = (9) vs 65
[08:50:52] Haydonite Reaver: Something from down the tunnel.
[08:51:20] Haydonite Reaver: Anomalous sound reading, protocol requires investigation.
[08:51:51] Lt. Jaron eyes the guards as they wait for a cart fill
[08:52:23] CWO2 Sarah watches quietly as well.
[08:52:31] Lt. Ishida breaths out thru her nose and goes prone, flipping the bipod on the rifle down and lineing up as the Haydonites advance, in cover formation.
[08:53:08] GM: Camouflage or concealment rolls if you have them
[08:53:39] 2nd Lt Vinai: ((neither ~_~((
[08:53:40] Lt. Ishida: [1d100] =>  = (79) vs 73 Camo
[08:54:12] Haydonite Reaver: [1d20+4] => [2,4] = (6)
[08:54:13] Haydonite Reaver: [1d20+4] => [16,4] = (20)
[08:54:23] Gage pulls Vinny down with him (prowl [1d100] =>  = (91) vs 55)
[08:54:27] Haydonite Reaver: [1d100] =>  = (92) Tactics vs 65
[08:54:42] 2nd Lt Vinai would apparently make a slight thud and oof.
[08:54:43] Haydonite Reaver: Contact front! Engaging!
[08:54:56] GM: Inits
[08:55:12] Gage curses a bit "Oh well" (init [1d20+7] => [1,7] = (8))
[08:55:15] Gage: (ugg)
[08:55:19] 2nd Lt Vinai: [1d20] =>  = (9)
[08:55:59] GM: Vin you have that +2 so lol
[08:56:17] Lt. Ishida: [1d20+5+2] => [18,5,2] = (25)
[08:56:25] Haydonite Reaver: [1d20+4] => [13,4] = (17)
[08:56:25] Haydonite Reaver: [1d20+4] => [9,4] = (13)
[08:56:30] 2nd Lt Vinai: ((yay I have an an 11))
[08:57:16] GM: Okay, since you were all (SUKI!!!) as quiet as a herd of drunken elephants tap dancing over bubble wrap…you get no ambush or surprise attack
[08:58:01] GM: Inits following reverse order are, Gage, Vinny, H, H, Suki
[08:58:11] GM: Suki will int and try to plug one with the rifle to the dome
[08:59:28] Lt. Ishida: [1d20+11+2] => [14,11,2] = (27)
[09:00:11] GM: That is a hit, nat roll is above 12 so called shot is hit [1d4x10] => 1d4x10
[09:00:20] GM: [1d4*10] => 10
[09:00:45] GM: Suki hits the dome and the Reaver [1d100] =>  = (39) (target to beat is under 50%)
[09:00:54] GM: Keeps his footing!
[09:00:55] GM: Gage
[09:01:26] GM: [1d20+8] => [1,8] = (9)
[09:01:39] GM: Yeah, sorry, forgot the enemy counter roll, so, yeah Gage your turn
[09:01:48] Attempting to assign the role of Player to (8) No Name…
[09:02:24] GM: Jaron and Sarah, you hear the very distinct sound of a .50 Cal sniper rifle firing
[09:02:59] Gage raises up and fires a burst at Reaver Suki shot (to strike [1d20+8] => [17,8] = (25) dmg [2d4*10] => 50)
[09:03:04] GM: [1d20+8] => [11,8] = (19)
[09:03:53] GM: Gage your shot tears a chunk out of the enemy! Vinny
[09:04:44] Lt. Jaron: (we saw the guards leave?)
[09:04:50] 2nd Lt Vinai sights in on the second Haydonite and aims in on one of the legs to keep it from standing or moving any further. (Called Shot: Leg)
[09:05:06] GM: Yes, and that slave next to you just filled your cart up with a final bucket load of ore.
[09:05:08] 2nd Lt Vinai: [1d20+3] => [8,3] = (11)
[09:05:12] GM: [1d20+8] => [19,8] = (27)
[09:05:28] GM: The Haydonite in the course of moving to the cave wall for cover, evades your shot.
[09:05:55] 2nd Lt Vinai tchs lightly. "Think I'll stick to programming cool shit.."
[09:06:03] 2nd Lt Vinai: ((afk real quick getting kids ready for bed))
[09:06:06] Haydonite Reaver: Fires at [1d3] =>  = (2) 1 Suki, 2, Vin, 3 Gage [1d20+8] => [14,8] = (22)
[09:06:32] Haydonite Reaver: Fires at [1d3] =>  = (3) [1d20+8] => [6,8] = (14)
[09:06:50] Gage tries to skip out of shot (auto [1d20+10] => [11,10] = (21))
[09:07:02] GM: Gage and Vinny, the enemy fire at you two. Gage, you evade.
[09:07:28] CWO2 Sarah: (( and Vinny just went to put kid to bed ))
[09:07:30] CWO2 Sarah: (( hehe ))
[09:07:43] 2nd Lt Vinai does a combat roll backwards. [1d20+3] => [1,3] = (4)
[09:07:56] CWO2 Sarah: (( … ouch ))
[09:08:36] GM: [1d6*10=15] => 1d6*10=15 to the [1d100] =>  = (62)
[09:08:47] GM: [1d6*10+15] => 75
[09:09:06] Gage: (ouchie)
[09:09:12] CWO2 Sarah: (( eep ))
[09:09:23] GM: Main Body
[09:09:48] GM: New round Gage, you attack
[09:10:07] Gage lights up the previously hit one with another burst (to strike [1d20+9] => [5,9] = (14); dmg [2d4*10] => 40 MD)
[09:10:12] GM: [1d20+8] => [9,8] = (17)
[09:10:21] GM: The Haydonite evades!
[09:10:24] GM: Vinny!
[09:11:07] GM: Hmm still putting the kids down
[09:11:31] GM: KK, he needs a dodge and a strike roll,
[09:11:53] GM: Suki will interrupt the Haydonites. She dumps the rifle, pulls her Katana and charges.
[09:12:32] FO Ryuu Hasegawa (enter): 21:12
[09:12:40] Haydonite Reaver: Opens fire on [1d6] =>  = (2) 1 Vinny, 2 Gage, 3-6 crazy ass sword chick.

[09:14:34] GM: Gage, your attack.
[09:15:00] Gage tries to dodge [1d20+10] => [5,10] = (15) and then fire back [1d20+9] => [8,9] = (17) dmg [2d4*10] => 30 MD

[09:20:42] GM: [1d20+8] => [15,8] = (23)
[09:21:07] GM: You hit cave wall in fact Jaron and Sarah are peppered with rock fragments from that miss.

[09:22:45] Lt. Jaron pulls Sarah down behind the cart and watches for for Haydonite backup
[09:23:06] GM: She hits, but hit [1d100] =>  = (92) instead [3d6+10

[09:24:56] GM: Gage, Suki the batshit crazy seems to have gotten aggro, your attack
[09:25:42] Gage moves up to get an angle and fires another burst (to strike [1d20+9] => [4,9] = (13); [2d4*10] => 50 MD)
[09:25:45] Gage: (uggg)
[09:26:10] GM: [1d20+6] => [13,6] = (19)

[09:30:44] GM: [1d20+6] => [5,6] = (11)
[09:31:03] Lt. Jaron peeks around the corner of the cart and comments "Indeed. Lets hope their friends dont come"
[09:31:07] GM: He hits number 2 once, and number 1 once
[09:31:57] GM: Anyone know what Vinny is packing?
[09:32:16] Lt. Jaron: (ep 37 I think)
[09:32:34] GM: kk
[09:32:41] 2nd Lt Vinai: ((it was my H-90))
[09:32:54] 2nd Lt Vinai: ((sorry doing things for 2 parents…wife's down with the sickness ~_~)).
[09:33:07] Lt. Jaron: (hey that’s my excuse!)
[09:33:10] GM: Kk, roll damage twice, and a dodge
[09:33:18] CWO2 Sarah sighs. "If it lasts long enough to seem too likely, I'll have to get us out of here while they're distracted."
[09:33:35] 2nd Lt Vinai: [2d6] => [4,1] = (5)
[09:33:36] 2nd Lt Vinai: [2d6] => [4,2] = (6)
[09:33:38] GM: Suki ints the enemy and tries for another slice. [1d20+11] => [17,11] = (28) vs [1d20+8] => [19,8] = (27)
[09:33:42] 2nd Lt Vinai: [1d20+3] => [1,3] = (4)
[09:33:55] GM: [3d6+10] => [5,6,4,10] = (25)
[09:34:15] GM: Was that last roll your dodge?
[09:34:21] GM: Yah
[09:34:25] 2nd Lt Vinai: Yea.
[09:34:33] GM: [1d6*10+15] => 45 to the [1d100] =>  = (84)
[09:34:35] 2nd Lt Vinai: Matter fact….same exact roll too >.>
[09:34:44] GM: 45 to the Main Body
[09:35:20] GM: Suki is able to find that chink in the armor and hits the head. The Haydonite wobbles, but still seems active. but loses an attack
[09:35:38] GM: [1d20+8] => [20,8] = (28) @ [1d6] =>  = (5)
[09:35:43] GM: [1d20] =>  = (15)
[09:35:59] Lt. Jaron: (ouchie)
[09:36:00] GM: [1d6*10+15] => 65 to the [1d100] =>  = (97)
[09:36:35] 2nd Lt Vinai apparently has no chest plate.
[09:36:47] GM: [65*2] => 130
[09:36:50] Gage: (thats to suk I think)
[09:37:14] GM: Main body since her forearms are in front of her and the enemy is behind her
[09:37:18] 2nd Lt Vinai: ((I took 75 previously to the main body…now with 45 that's 120…my chest plate is gone.))
[09:37:39] GM: Suki is tagged hard at near point blank range.
[09:37:47] GM: Gage your attack
[09:39:19] Gage grumbles and fires another burst the stunned one (to strike [1d20+9] => [8,9] = (17); dmg [2d4*10] => 50 MD)
[09:39:21] GM: kk, you still have your CVR underneath
[09:39:29] GM: [1d20+2] => [17,2] = (19)
[09:39:41] GM: The enemy parries you with Suki
[09:39:57] GM: 50 more to her Main body
[09:40:04] Gage: (hehe poor Suki)
[09:40:04] GM: Vinny
[09:40:28] Lt. Jaron crouches up but still behind cart "Sarah lets push forward"
[09:40:38] GM: behind you the 4 man element of 2nd Squad is moving up, this fire fight having taken FAR to long
[09:41:30] CWO2 Sarah nods just a little bit, looking for the cart explosives, and at a combatant, considering it a moment. "Right…"
[09:41:50] 2nd Lt Vinai drops prone to cover his now open chest. "The password…is Shadow Fang." With that he takes another shot at Haydonite number 3.
[09:41:53] Lt. Jaron starts to push forward with Sarah
[09:41:58] GM: You two low crawl forward, Sarah, NOT the kind of sensations up forward you enjoy
[09:42:11] CWO2 Sarah: (( hehehehehe ))
[09:42:13] GM: ((only 2 enemy))
[09:42:23] 2nd Lt Vinai: [1d20+3] => [14,3] = (17) at number 2
[09:42:35] GM: One is open, and the other has the spider monkey known as Suki latched onto it's face stabbing at it
[09:42:48] GM: [1d20+6] => [1,6] = (7)
[09:42:55] GM: You hit!
[09:43:04] 2nd Lt Vinai: [2d6] => [5,1] = (6)
[09:43:08] 2nd Lt Vinai: 6MD
[09:43:13] GM: is that 6 md or am I missing something?
[09:43:23] 2nd Lt Vinai: That is.
[09:43:27] GM: Suki will be slappin you very hard after this
[09:43:40] Lt. Jaron: (single shot is 2d6)
[09:43:57] Gage looks to Vinny "Know how to use burst fire?"
[09:44:07] GM: Burst fire is your friend, ask Gage, mr single shot and shit now we are in space
[09:44:12] CWO2 Sarah: (( always fire bursts, and always keep it in rifle mode ))
[09:44:59] GM: This isn’t a Kevin Long drawing where a Gallant in pistol mode blows off an Odeon Arm
[09:45:00] Gage: (Hey….it hit its target….just didn’t wish to miss and blow something up )
[09:45:00] 2nd Lt Vinai: ((He's a marine yes..but combat's not his thing. He's trying for precision lol))
[09:45:37] GM: Suki ints the enemy and [1d20+11] => [2,11] = (13) vs [1d20+8] => [20,8] = (28)
[09:45:44] GM: Hit nada!
[09:46:10] GM: [1d20+8] => [14,8] = (22) at [1d6] =>  = (5) and [1d20+8] => [3,8] = (11) at [1d6] =>  = (3)
[09:46:18] GM: [1d20+21] => [11,21] = (32)
[09:46:22] GM: [1d20+21] => [4,21] = (25)
[09:46:36] GM: Suki certainly has aggro, Gage your attack
[09:47:32] GM: Vinny, perc
[09:47:34] Gage moves forward and fires at the free one, a single shot to the dome (to strike [1d20+9] => [11,9] = (20); dmg [2d6+4] => [1,1,4] = (6) MD)
[09:47:57] GM: [1d20+8] => [15,8] = (23)
[09:48:00] GM: You miss
[09:48:27] GM: Vin a perc and then a strike
[09:48:58] 2nd Lt Vinai: [1d20] =>  = (4)
[09:49:31] GM: Jaron and Sarah, you low crawl some more and you see the fight, There are the two guards, one has his weapon in two parts and a cyclone on his face with a Katana, and there is the other guard in a cover position shooting at the cyclone on his mates face.
[09:49:40] 2nd Lt Vinai moves the switch forward to High Power then aims in on the chest of Haydonite number 1
[09:49:54] GM: roll it
[09:50:00] 2nd Lt Vinai: [1d20+3] => [10,3] = (13)
[09:50:05] GM: [1d20+8] => [18,8] = (26)
[09:50:29] GM: The enemy evades Suki ints and strikes [1d20+11] => [9,11] = (20) vs [1d20+8] => [15,8] = (23)
[09:50:37] GM: Nothing
[09:50:46] GM: ((see, super high stats dont mean shit!))
[09:51:17] GM: [1d20+8] => [1,8] = (9) at [1d6] =>  = (1) and [1d20+8] => [14,8] = (22) at Suki
[09:51:28] GM: Gage, you are fired at but are missed so hard
[09:51:35] Gage once closer up, he fires a burst at free one (to strike [1d20+10] => [7,10] = (17); dmg [2d4*10] => 40)
[09:51:35] GM: [1d20+21] => [15,21] = (36)
[09:51:45] GM: [1d20+6] => [14,6] = (20)
[09:51:49] GM: miss
[09:51:50] Gage: (dang)
[09:52:04] UEMC Cpl.: [1d20+8] => [6,8] = (14)
[09:52:04] UEMC Cpl.: [1d20+8] => [11,8] = (19)

[09:52:16] Haydonite Reaver: [1d20+8] => [20,8] = (28)
[09:52:16] Haydonite Reaver: [1d20+8] => [10,8] = (18)
[09:52:17] Haydonite Reaver: [1d20+8] => [19,8] = (27)
[09:52:27] Haydonite Reaver: [1d2] =>  = (1)
[09:52:30] Gage: geesg)
[09:52:42] Haydonite Reaver: [2d4*10] => 20 at [1d100] =>  = (13)
[09:53:17] GM: Vinny, your attack, 2nd Squad has invited themselves to the dance
[09:54:34] 2nd Lt Vinai takes in a deep breath then rests his cheek on the buttstock before closing his eyes and sloooowly pulling onto the trigger. "Easseee…the shot." He opened his siting eye zeroed in on the Haydonite's head. (Called shot Head)
[09:54:36] 2nd Lt Vinai: [1d20+3] => [3,3] = (6)
[09:54:51] 2nd Lt Vinai: ((wee…awesome thematics…RNG denied!))
[09:54:52] GM: [1d20+6] => [4,6] = (10)
[09:55:00] GM: Close too!
[09:55:18] GM: Suki yada yada [1d20+11] => [4,11] = (15) vs [1d20+8] => [18,8] = (26)
[09:55:27] GM: ((oh COME on!!!))
[09:55:50] 2 LT Komillia: ((The Awareness has hijacked the RNG.))
[09:56:02] GM: [1d20+8] => [2,8] = (10) at [1d6] =>  = (6) and [1d20+8] => [3,8] = (11) at Suki
[09:56:12] GM: [1d20+21] => [5,21] = (26)
[09:56:25] UEMC Cpl.: [1d20+8] => [4,8] = (12)
[09:56:25] UEMC Cpl.: [1d20+8] => [6,8] = (14)
[09:56:25] UEMC Cpl.: [1d20+8] => [7,8] = (15)
[09:56:25] UEMC Cpl.: [1d20+8] => [20,8] = (28)

[09:56:33] Haydonite Reaver: [1d20+8] => [7,8] = (15)
[09:56:33] Haydonite Reaver: [1d20+8] => [7,8] = (15)
[09:56:56] GM: Haydonite number one is obliterated by UEEF fire!
[09:57:09] GM: Haydonite 2 still has a spider monkey noming on it's face
[09:57:16] GM: Gage your attack
[09:57:37] Gage moves to point blank and nearly hold his barrel to the dome of the haydonite then fires another burst (to strike [1d20+10] => [20,10] = (30); [2d4*10] => 30 MD)
[09:57:44] GM: [1d20] =>  = (12)
[09:58:00] CWO2 Sarah: (( kekekekeke ))
[09:58:16] CWO2 Sarah: (( woot, 60 to the head. ))
[09:58:38] GM: The head now had a massive hole blown into it and you can see the pilots head behind
[09:59:04] GM: whoops, forgot the double, the dome is gone!
[09:59:22] GM: The haydonite crumples underneath Suki.
[09:59:30] GM: Jaron and Sarah, your way is clear
[10:00:02] Gage looks to Suki "You look like shit Lt." and eyes the two slaves
[10:00:09] CWO2 Sarah stands back up after the way clears, stretching out and heading back to the others, glancing to Jaron. "Well, at least we didn't get caught…"
[10:00:17] Lt. Jaron runs out "Nice job"
[10:00:33] Lt. Ishida looks at Gage with eyes that sparkle.
[10:01:02] Lt. Ishida grabs the cuff of the Haydonite at her feet and starts to drag it off.
[10:01:15] Lt. Ishida: 2nd squad, police the remains up!
[10:01:33] Lt. Jaron comments "Anyone bring some clothes or blankets?"
[10:01:48] Lt. Ishida: Side cargo box.
[10:01:55] Lt. Ishida: Left side
[10:02:05] CWO2 Sarah glances at Jaron, then to Suki, brightening and heading for the cargo box. "Thanks!"
[10:02:25] Lt. Ishida pats Sarah on the head fondly
[10:02:35] Lt. Ishida looks at Jaron "None for you."
[10:03:26] 2nd Lt Vinai stands up slowly. His CVR chest plate completely gone after the barrage of fire. "Well….yea." Max then just sits down.
[10:03:29] GM: ((no pat on the head, there is a jacket and blanket for Jaron as well))
[10:03:31] Lt. Jaron moves to get them. He hands Sarah the load "Thanks Suki." and he turns a bit "Regardless we need to head back asap"
[10:04:03] Lt. Jaron: "Where is the other team?"
[10:04:02] GM: Okay, KOMI!!!!
[10:04:12] GM: Ryu, I'm magically putting you with Komi's group
[10:04:42] GM: Komi, one of your UEEF troops morphs into Ryuu, a 'hey, there you are' moment
[10:05:00] FO Ryuu Hasegawa: (poof)
[10:05:07] 2 LT Komillia: ((I knew those mushrooms in the mess didn't taste right.))
[10:05:14] FO Ryuu Hasegawa: (lol)
[10:05:58] 2 LT Komillia looks around at the creature cave wondering which exits are valid.
[10:06:08] CWO2 Sarah: (( ehehehehehe ))
[10:06:31] GM: Okay, the UEEF folks gather up the enemy carcasses and drag them off as they escort Jaron and Sarah out. One of them move deeper in and tip the mine cart over, and returns with a suitcase sized object.
[10:07:10] 2 LT Komillia: What's that?
[10:07:16] GM: Komillia, you have secured the creature cave, the beasties have scurried away to from whence they came.
[10:07:51] GM: Komi you have 4 exits presented to you
[10:08:06] GM: I see that line, is that where you wanna go?
[10:08:09] 2 LT Komillia: ((I wanna follow the squiggly, that you probably can't see….))
[10:10:00] GM: You make your way thru a uneven passage, you can see carved out steps, but little else. Thankfully the steps are Karbarran sized, and your Devo and accompanying cyclones are easily accommodated
[10:10:45] GM: you come to an intersection, leading left and right
[10:11:03] GM: the left (for you, leads upward
[10:11:18] 2 LT Komillia keeps to the right.
[10:11:50] 2 LT Komillia looks for more trouble, clearly there are things here that need to be shot on sight. [1d20'] => 1d20'
[10:11:54] GM: another choice presents itself
[10:11:55] 2 LT Komillia: [1d20] =>  = (10)
[10:12:32] 2 LT Komillia picks the one that leads away from the creature cave.
[10:13:12] GM: You arrive at a smallish sized chamber, you see that the right passage way is collapsed.
[10:13:21] GM: perc
[10:13:27] GM: you to Ryuu
[10:13:47] 2 LT Komillia: [1d20] =>  = (4)
[10:14:18] GM: Ryuu?
[10:14:51] FO Ryuu Hasegawa: [1d20] =>  = (10)
[10:15:27] GM: Ryuu, you almost miss it, but, when you take a step it's easy…you just put your foot thru a Karberran skull.
[10:16:59] GM: no response?
[10:17:08] GM: not even an eww?
[10:17:21] FO Ryuu Hasegawa: "Yuck.."
[10:17:29] 2 LT Komillia: Yuck what?
[10:17:37] FO Ryuu Hasegawa points to the skull
[10:17:49] GM: ((yeah Ryuu, percs and such, communication with your team mates if key))
[10:17:57] GM: ((if = is))
[10:18:08] FO Ryuu Hasegawa: (*sigh* sorry)
[10:18:16] GM: Komi, you see what Ryuu points at
[10:18:36] Lt. Jaron: (plus komi is hot! )
[10:18:47] GM: ((I'm an ass of a GM if you see something, that’s potentially important, and dot tell anyone, well then it's missed, and may come back to bite you later))
[10:18:48] 2 LT Komillia: Great danger. Press forward, but keep the safeties off.
[10:19:41] GM: ((this I do mainly because of past games where I knew what to do, but could not because the other player didn't open his yap and inform the rest of us, usually bad things happened afterward))
[10:20:00] GM: Komi perc
[10:20:45] FO Ryuu Hasegawa: (I didn’t see anything, just stepped in something)
[10:20:56] 2 LT Komillia: [1d20] =>  = (10)
[10:21:17] GM: ((I dunno, but If I stepped on a skull…I'd say something, prolly after jumping back a few feet and doing the eww gross shimmy dance))
[10:21:53] FO Ryuu Hasegawa: (lol, true)
[10:22:15] FO Ryuu Hasegawa: "Yuck, that was gross…"
[10:22:21] GM: Komi, you see among that one skull a few more bodies, all skeletal, of Karberrans, about 5 of them, yu can see old side arms as well.
[10:23:11] 2 LT Komillia: Here there be dragons.
[10:24:21] 2 LT Komillia: So anyone thinking we should turn around or march onward. Cause while I see a bunch of dead bears, I don't see anything resembling power armor, so we probably have a leg up on them.
[10:24:52] UEMC Cpl.: You're the boss, boss.
[10:24:59] 2 LT Komillia: Ryu?
[10:25:19] FO Ryuu Hasegawa stares at the skull for a second then looks yup
[10:25:22] FO Ryuu Hasegawa: "yup?"
[10:25:28] FO Ryuu Hasegawa: (up)
[10:25:32] FO Ryuu Hasegawa: (cant type tonight)
[10:25:37] 2 LT Komillia: We press onward then.
[10:25:51] GM: show me
[10:26:26] FO Ryuu Hasegawa: "If you want to head toward where there are dead Karberrans…I think well find out what ate hem soon enough"
[10:26:30] 2 LT Komillia: ((Where am I?))
[10:26:42] GM: Pink cirlce near the pink line
[10:27:46] 2 LT Komillia: ((Follow the blue line))
[10:28:21] GM: That area is likewise caved in, and you can see pockmarks of weapons fire along the walls. There is a defensive position here, that looks smashed, and among lots of Karberran bodies, you can see some reddish chunks or armor plate.
[10:28:52] GM: ((all skeletal mind you))
[10:29:52] 2 LT Komillia looks at the chunks to see if it looks familiar. [1d20] =>  = (5) Perc, [1d100] =>  = (76) vs 65 RSI for good measure.
[10:30:40] GM: Sadly the armor is to small to tell what it's origin was, but whatever killed it blew it to bits but good.
[10:31:12] GM: Ryuu you can roll percs to ya know
[10:31:24] GM: ((I cant roll for the UEEF since that would be giving it away))
[10:31:31] 2 LT Komillia turns the group around. ((and follows the soon to be line. AFTER Ryu rolls.))
[10:31:37] FO Ryuu Hasegawa: [1d20] =>  = (12)
[10:31:46] FO Ryuu Hasegawa looks over the debris quietly
[10:33:32] GM: Ryuu, you look over the plate and the color reminds you of the coloration (faded now due to time) but still close to that of an Invid Scout
[10:34:24] GM: Komi you and you team back track and as you do you can see battle damage along the walls
[10:34:45] FO Ryuu Hasegawa: "These are old battle remains komi"
[10:35:12] FO Ryuu Hasegawa: "and this one was an Invid…must have been back when they were fighting for Urt balor"
[10:36:10] 2 LT Komillia: So, we probably won't run into dragons but an Invid nest. Kinda wish Amdahl was here.
[10:37:12] GM: The area you enter now is fairly large, and looks to have been the site of a large battle. percs
[10:38:00] FO Ryuu Hasegawa: [1d20] =>  = (7)
[10:38:25] 2 LT Komillia: [1d20] =>  = (4)
[10:38:59] GM: Ryuu, you know for your readings that the Invid collect their fallen, and since there is at least 6 Invid Scout remains in the area, it seems that the Invid did not win this engagement
[10:39:55] FO Ryuu Hasegawa: "The Invid did not win this"
[10:40:32] FO Ryuu Hasegawa: "The question is…did the Karberrans?"
[10:41:18] 2 LT Komillia: Guessing from the corpses, if they did, it was a Pyrrhic victory.
[10:41:50] GM: where to now?
[10:42:34] 2 LT Komillia: ((Follow the line and then start looking for a way back. We're only getting lost back here.))
[10:42:43] GM: You continue on and can see more evidence of past battle.
[10:43:08] GM: This large area you are in now is ruined, but you can tell it once housed many Karbarrans.
[10:43:44] GM: the passageway to the seems to have been dug out by claw
[10:43:54] GM: to the north
[10:44:51] 2 LT Komillia: Any thoughts, because at this point we have done nothing to find the enemy.
[10:45:45] UEMC Cpl.: Well, at least we know that those toasters aren't this deep in.
[10:45:54] 2 LT Komillia: Well let's go this way for a bit, and if we see nothing, we'll backtrack to base.
[10:46:50] GM: You continue on and after a 1000 or so feet, the ground goes from crunch crunch to squish squish
[10:47:02] 2 LT Komillia: [1d20] =>  = (3)
[10:47:17] GM: Oblivious Zent is oblivious
[10:47:34] GM: Ryuu?
[10:47:58] UEMC Cpl.: Looks like some sort of secreted resin.
[10:48:09] UEMC LCpl.: Yeah, but secreted from what?
[10:48:25] FO Ryuu Hasegawa: [1d20] =>  = (12)
[10:49:05] GM: The sides of the cave have taken on biological features.
[10:49:41] FO Ryuu Hasegawa: "This looks…different, almost alive"
[10:49:42] UEMC LCpl.: Oh ha ha, very funny.
[10:49:54] UEMC Cpl.: Hehe, always wanted to say that.
[10:50:19] FO Ryuu Hasegawa laughs along with the Cpl
[10:50:23] 2 LT Komillia: Yay, digestion time..
[10:50:34] FO Ryuu Hasegawa: "at least it doesn’t have huge pointy teeth"
[10:50:37] UEMC Cpl.: Well, whatever it is, it's straight up
[10:50:39] Lt. Jaron: (heheehe)
[10:50:55] UEMC LCpl. points back the way you came
[10:51:03] UEMC LCpl.: Didn't you see the bones!?
[10:51:52] 2 LT Komillia someone take a sample for some egg head to look over later. I'm curious as to what this might be. First person to complain of dissolving and we'll high-tail it back out of here.
[10:52:10] CWO2 Sarah: (( lol ))
[10:52:12] CWO2 Sarah: (( dissolving ))
[10:52:18] UEMC LCpl.: So, continuing forward?
[10:52:31] 2 LT Komillia: Of course.
[10:53:04] FO Ryuu Hasegawa: "wonder how far this rabbit hole goes"
[10:53:40] GM: You continue on up the way, and the biological cave covering begin to take on a clearly invid motif
[10:54:03] 2 LT Komillia: Now I wish Amdahl really was here.
[10:54:15] GM: Percs
[10:54:30] 2 LT Komillia: [1d20] =>  = (19)
[10:55:06] GM: Komi! You see ahead of you about 300 feet down what looks like an Invid Scout. It is just sitting there, in the middle of the passageway.
[10:55:18] GM: It seems to be…looking at you
[10:55:23] FO Ryuu Hasegawa: [1d20] =>  = (5)
[10:55:34] GM: Ryuu, you bump into Komi
[10:55:39] CWO2 Sarah: (( uh oh… ))
[10:55:40] Lt. Jaron: (hehe)
[10:56:45] 2 LT Komillia: Um. Hi. I'm teammates with one of your siblings. We're fighting the Haydonites now so. If any of these bozos fire without permission I'll give them a quick court martial okay.
[10:57:01] 2 LT Komillia is talking to the Invid, doubting it would understand her anyway.
[10:58:06] GM: The Invid Scout, doesn’t move, or respond in any identifiable way
[10:58:21] Lt. Jaron: (great diplomacy skills there)
[10:58:27] GM: behind it you can see more corridor.
[10:58:43] 2 LT Komillia: Mind if we pass through?
[10:58:59] 2 LT Komillia takes a step forward to see if there is a reaction.
[10:59:11] GM: the area behind it better lit, with that ambient phosphorescent light that Invid structured normally give off
[10:59:26] GM: The Scout follows you with it's beady eye but doesn’t move.
[10:59:51] UEMC Cpl.: This is fekked up man.
[11:00:03] 2 LT Komillia: Stow it you.
[11:00:05] Lt. Jaron: (I can hear the scary spooky music now)
[11:00:30] UEMC LCpl.: Any second they are gonna come out of the walls and eat our face, agggh aggggh.
[11:00:39] UEMC LCpl. pantomimes a claw across his face.
[11:00:43] 2 LT Komillia dismounts her Devo and walks around the Invid. Hopefully not bringing PC weapons won't set off a firestorm.
[11:01:02] FO Ryuu Hasegawa watches her carefully, and keeps eyes on the Invid
[11:01:05] 2 LT Komillia: I said stow it, before I shoot you myself.
[11:02:03] GM: The Invid watches you approach and turns slightly watching you as you walk around it, but it does not bar your way.
[11:02:59] 2 LT Komillia continues down the corridor and keeps looking for more Invid.
[11:03:06] 2 LT Komillia: [1d20] =>  = (15) PERC
[11:03:06] GM: roll a d20
[11:03:19] 2 LT Komillia: [1d20] =>  = (12)
[11:03:27] FO Ryuu Hasegawa: [1d20] =>  = (14)
[11:03:42] GM: You see more hive, and it looks more familiar, based on intel reports you were made to learn in basic and your follow on courses
[11:04:38] GM: Komi, you freeze and seize up.
[11:05:17] Unearthly Voice: Who…are…you?
[11:05:47] GM: Only Komi can hear this, the rest of you see her stop mid-step and go motionless.
[11:07:02] 2 LT Komillia: I am Komillia Maeless, I'm with the UEEF. I'm not hear to fight you.
[11:07:28] GM: Why…are…you…in…this…place?
[11:07:42] Unearthly Voice: Why…are…you…in…this…place
[11:08:06] 2 LT Komillia: I'm looking for out mutual enemies the Haydonites. I was hoping one of you might now where they are.
[11:08:32] Unearthly Voice: HAYDONITES!!!!
[11:08:35] Unearthly Voice the voice thunders.
[11:08:55] Unearthly Voice: Spawn…of…the…Shadow!
[11:10:00] Lt. Jaron: (sweet)
[11:10:20] 2 LT Komillia: That's them. We were fools to trust them. There are Invid helping us fight them even now. If you could point us in a direction you might thing they are, or at least you are so we don't accidentally shoot in your direction…
[11:10:20] GM: Ryuu, you and the other UEEF folks see the Scout agitate slightly.
[11:11:40] Unearthly Voice: Invid…live…to…fight…the …Shadow…this…is…as…it…has…always…been.
[11:12:40] 2 LT Komillia: Then we serve the same purpose now. Care to release me before my less enlightened followers think your hurting me?
[11:13:26] UEMC-Cpl says lowly "This is sooo creepy man"
[11:13:47] GM: There is a pause, and then your muscles all at once relax and you crumple to the ground as if you had been tensing up and tried to hold it as long as you could then released.
[11:14:26] 2 LT Komillia calls back to the others. "It's alright they are hostile to the Haydonites not us!"
[11:14:48] 2nd Lt Vinai: ((Giggity..))
[11:14:50] Unearthly Voice: You…are…of…the…Masters.
[11:14:51] FO Ryuu Hasegawa: "They are still alive?!"
[11:15:12] Unearthly Voice: You…are…their…spawn.
[11:15:32] 2 LT Komillia: Sadly yes. I sometimes wish it wasn't so.
[11:15:52] 2 LT Komillia calls back to Ryu. "Yes they are."
[11:15:53] Unearthly Voice: Define…wish.
[11:16:16] 2 LT Komillia: An unobtainable hope.
[11:16:28] Unearthly Voice: Understood.
[11:17:26] Unearthly Voice: You…seek…the…shadow…you…seek…too…defeat…the…shadow?
[11:18:04] 2 LT Komillia: Very mush so. Yes.
[11:18:12] Unearthly Voice: Gooooood
[11:19:10] Unearthly Voice: You…say…Sibling…explain.
[11:19:59] GM: Note if you have seen Babylon 5, and know ambassador Kosh, the voice is kinda like that, but a bit deeper, and more resonate.
[11:20:04] CWO2 Sarah: (( lol ))
[11:20:07] 2 LT Komillia: There is an Invid who fights on the same team I normally do, I had no real other way to describe what she is to you.
[11:22:08] Unearthly Voice: Bring…the…Invid…to…me.
[11:22:51] 2 LT Komillia: I will have to go back to my base and get her to come back. That will take a bit as I cannot teleport like she can.
[11:23:00] Unearthly Voice: Goooo
[11:23:36] 2 LT Komillia: Thank you.
[11:23:45] Unearthly Voice: My…Herald…will…go…with…you.
[11:23:59] 2 LT Komillia: Herald?
[11:24:29] GM: The Scout you passed has turned fully and is looking at you Komi
[11:24:46] Lt. Jaron: (hehehehe)
[11:25:09] 2 LT Komillia gets up and leaves and remounts her Devo, and looks at the Scout.
[11:25:09] 2nd Lt Vinai: ((Pfft you should have gave the Sagacious Invid Jame Earl Jones' Voice lol))
[11:25:25] GM: That would have been cool, but I would have been sued
[11:25:28] 2 LT Komillia: Well, we have a new guest party member.
[11:25:30] CWO2 Sarah: (( complete with the Vader reverb ;p lol ))
[11:25:38] GM: This is…CNN
[11:25:58] 2 LT Komillia: Try to stay behind me so no one shoots you when we get back to base.
[11:26:01] 2nd Lt Vinai: ((Or even better…Morgan Freeman…and have Komi roll to resist being lulled to sleep by his awesome voice))
[11:26:14] GM: That voice is to pimp to use
[11:26:44] Lt. Jaron: (Hehehe)
[11:26:48] GM: The Herald complies
[11:26:55] 2 LT Komillia: Alright lets head back to base. We didn't find what we were looking for, but perhaps something better.
[11:27:38] GM: Komi, you get back to the firebase well after Suki Jaron Sarah etc arrive.
[11:27:56] 2nd Lt Vinai blinks as he watches Komillia turn away from the…being. He wants to say something, anything. But he just can't open his mouth.
[11:28:12] GM: Free Rp for the base folk as Komi begins her return
[11:28:23] 2 LT Komillia: Uh, Sarah? We have an Invid Brain who would like to speak to you.
[11:28:38] GM: ((I’ll give a few minutes of Free Rp before she gets back to be fair since lots of stuff did happen))
[11:28:39] 2 LT Komillia: Its herald is following behind me.
[11:29:22] 2nd Lt Vinai quickly put away his datapad. "There are some things I'd rather not be able to understand." He left his spot amongst his home amidst the wires and whirring cooling fans.
[11:29:55] Lt. Jaron is definitely surprised.
[11:30:10] UEMC LCpl.: "He followed us home, can we keep it?"
[11:30:51] CWO2 Sarah has been in the shower getting herself all cleaned up after the recon. She blinks a little as she hears the news, walking out from her shower and making sure her CVR is on nice and tight, even without helmet, as she walks out, staring at the scout. She blinks over at the LCpl's joke, laughing a little then.
[11:31:36] Lt. Jaron looks to the Lance corporal and shrugs "Just as long he is civil but brass might think otherwise"
[11:31:45] Lt. Ishida in her CVR-3, likewise cleaned up, with her katana at the ready steps with Sarah, a little ahead, in a defensive posture.
[11:32:12] Maj. Kavashera: Jesus Komi! I ask you to scout the area and you bring back an Invid Scout.
[11:32:48] GM: Needless to say the entire camp is on alert and every imaginable gun is trained on the … visitor.
[11:32:56] 2 LT Komillia: After some of the things I saw, I would have been less surprised if a dragon followed me back.
[11:33:08] Maj. Kavashera: Alright, report.
[11:33:31] FO Ryuu Hasegawa walks over to Vinny and elbows him playfully
[11:33:33] CWO2 Sarah looks over to the Major, and back to the others.. "It's us. Better to assume something ridiculous will happen, I thought."
[11:33:42] FO Ryuu Hasegawa: "you look like you’ve been through hell"
[11:33:46] Lt. Jaron smirks a little at the Major comments
[11:33:56] 2 LT Komillia gives the Major the War and Peace edition of the report.
[11:34:12] Maj. Kavashera: I see.
[11:34:21] Lt. Jaron: "Sir, wish for us all to relay intel since we all together?"
[11:34:25] Herald turns towards Sarah.
[11:34:45] 2nd Lt Vinai looks at Ryu still wearing his CVR….which for some surprising reason…is missing it's chest plate.
[11:35:31] Herald turns to Komi and point to Sarah
[11:35:37] 2nd Lt Vinai glances up at the Major and will undoubtedly wait until the sea of brass parts way.
[11:35:47] 2 LT Komillia: Yes, that's the one I was talking about.
[11:35:53] Unearthly Voice: Is…this…the…one…you …spoke…of.
[11:36:01] Lt. Jaron: "Sarah back up"
[11:36:10] 2 LT Komillia: I know she looks different. But you'd have to ask the Regess about why she did that.
[11:36:14] CWO2 Sarah: (( any chance I hear that voice as well, now that it sees me? ))
[11:36:29] GM: For sake of cool all withing 40 feet of the Invid hear the voice.
[11:36:46] Unearthly Voice: Regess!
[11:36:49] 2nd Lt Vinai: "…So that's who she was talking to!"
[11:36:58] Herald bristles.
[11:37:54] Lt. Ishida step in front of Sarah her blade half out.
[11:38:04] 2 LT Komillia: The Regess isn't around, she fled into deeps space.
[11:38:16] Maj. Kavashera: Woah, okay…everyone, take a step back.
[11:38:17] CWO2 Sarah glances over at the Scout, giving it a look of being completely unimpressed for the moment. "She isn't here. She left the moment the Haydonites showed up. The group I'm in now is a much better deal anyway."
[11:38:34] 2 LT Komillia: And Lt. Ishida, calm down, these things want to kill the Haydonites as bad as we do.
[11:38:43] Herald noses forward.
[11:38:45] 2nd Lt Vinai "Suki…ma'am…it's…sorta ok." He attempts to flag Suki down pointing at his datapad.
[11:39:08] Lt. Jaron watches the event and everyone moving
[11:39:24] Lt. Ishida looks at everyone else but responds only to the Majors call to back off.
[11:39:42] Herald looks at Sarah.
[11:39:47] Unearthly Voice: Explain.
[11:39:56] FO Ryuu Hasegawa watches, his arms folded across his chest
[11:41:02] 2nd Lt Vinai stands up during their little conversation and while the conversation between…eh..it and Sarah commences, Max nudges the Major. "Sir if you have a moment, I'd like for you to see something I developed. The experiment was a success."
[11:41:21] Maj. Kavashera keeps his eye on the Invid.
[11:41:37] Maj. Kavashera: Later Lieutenant, later.
[11:42:03] CWO2 Sarah shrugs at the Herald. "I actually like my coworkers here. And they're trying to fix the problem. We're currently in the middle of a full scale war with the children of the shadow even now."
[11:42:42] Unearthly Voice: This…is…agreeable.
[11:44:41] 2nd Lt Vinai gives the Herald a small glance. The same kind of glance those of a minority would probably receive stopping at a house in rural Tennessee that bares a Confederate Flag on the porch. He then turned away and went back to his wire haven.
[11:44:51] Maj. Kavashera: Chief, do us a favor, and, try and figure this things intentions.
[11:45:09] CWO2 Sarah looks like she almost would say more, but holds back for the moment. "They are on this world even now, some of them, holding people as slaves. Not sure what they're doing to enslave them yet, but it has to stop." She glances to the Major. "I certainly intend to try to, sir."
[11:45:29] Maj. Kavashera nods
[11:45:56] Unearthly Voice: Yess
[11:46:31] Unearthly Voice: You…are…of…no…threat…so…we…are…of…no…threat.
[11:47:44] 2 LT Komillia: Yep, that's what I've been trying to tell everyone.
[11:47:57] Herald turns to Komillia
[11:48:22] Unearthly Voice: Betrayal…is…the…harbinger…of…death.
[11:49:34] Maj. Kavashera: I understand.
[11:49:44] Unearthly Voice: Goooood
[11:50:11] Unearthly Voice: This…one…is…emissary.
[11:50:23] Herald points to Sarah
[11:50:55] Unearthly Voice: You…send…it…to…me…when…we…are…needed…not…before.
[11:51:24] CWO2 Sarah raises her eyebrows slightly and nods. "We aren't a threat to anyone who doesn't force us to be one. And that's the Haydonites right at the moment. S'why we're running all around the cave network armed trying to figure ways to get em out." She pauses at the last part then, blinking.
[11:51:47] Unearthly Voice: Not…before.
[11:51:58] Herald turns and leaves.
[11:53:38] CWO2 Sarah watches it leave, and waits until it's out of earshot. "… I've got a baaad feeling about this…"
[11:53:46] CWO2 Sarah: (( *runs like hell* ))
[11:53:57] GM: Elliot, I'm assuming that you have already informed the Major of your system, prior to the invid showing up,
[11:54:03] 2nd Lt Vinai watches the conversation from a seated helmet nearby his fingers interlocked holding his chin up like a bridge in his thoughts. "….No threat…the fuck he means by no threat. If it wasn't for the fact we were on this base right now I'd rip it's fucking face off…I can't say I hate many things in this world…but if it's one thing…" Max paused to see if anyone was near his little hideaway. Then he looked back down at the datapad. "I…hate…Invid." He stared at the natural Invid and shook his head. His voice was low and full of irrational spite. "I hope that piece of shit never returns here." As the thing left, Max turned off that feed and went back to fine tuning his new…toy.
[11:54:27] 2nd Lt Vinai: ((yes but that would have been pre-testing))
[11:54:55] GM: ((no no, in terms of time synch, you had returned earlier after securing Jaron and Sarah then Komillia and crew
[11:55:09] GM: by about an hour or so
[11:55:33] GM: Komillia's team moving thru those caves took a lot of time
[11:55:33] 2 LT Komillia: ((well, it's time for me to sleep.))
[11:55:33] 2nd Lt Vinai: ((Oh…yea))
[11:55:42] GM: kk
[11:55:55] CWO2 Sarah: (( g'night Komi ))
[11:55:55] Lt. Jaron since all are gathered "Just something I told the major earlier. There is a new reaver type"
TO BE CONTINUED!!!!
ONE HOUR EARLIER…
[11:56:09] GM: We can Free RP the stuff after Sarah and Jaron etc return to base camp
[11:56:28] Lt. Jaron: (K)
[11:56:33] GM: But, remember, when you do, that Komi is still 'out on patrol'
[11:56:43] CWO2 Sarah: (( hehehe ))
[11:57:04] That's the Tab key, Dave
[11:57:06] Lt. Jaron: (Yea…just inform Komi now)
[11:57:28] GM: the reason I didn’t earlier was because Komi has a hard break and i wanted to get her part in before he had to leave
[11:57:52] 2nd Lt Vinai approached the Major again. "Would you be free to take a look at my latest optic masterpiece?"
[11:57:57] Lt. Jaron: (yea…wesa can rewind to fill in blank time)
[12:00:23] 2nd Lt Vinai returns back with a big shit eating grin on his face. "I can't believe it…I can't fucking believe it! It worked!"
[12:00:24] Lt. Jaron moves to get clean and something soft on his feet before dealing with the Major
[12:00:34] GM: You all, sans Komi and her team return to base camp, Vinny, and Suki look like they have been thru a meat grinder.
[12:00:53] 2nd Lt Vinai actually has no main body armor…at all.
[12:01:41] CWO2 Sarah is in whatever Suki brought along, so isn't exactly greatly armored. Or at all armored really.
[12:01:44] Lt. Ishida dumps her Cyclone off, being damaged as it is, it cannot transform, so the built in quick releases are used to shed the armor.
[12:02:31] 2nd Lt Vinai still in banged up CVR armor, rushed into the Major's tent. "You're never going to believe this sir…but you will."
[12:02:50] 1stSgt Walken bars your path
[12:02:56] 1stSgt Walken: Easy son, don’t forget your bearing.
[12:02:58] Gage transforms and lets the tech have at repairs, taking his baby M90 with him to clean
[12:03:53] UEMC Sgt. looks at the busted up armor of Suki's and Gage's and smiles.
[12:04:18] UEMC Sgt.: That's what i like to see! If it ain't blown to fuck all, you ain’t trying hard enough! That, and job security!
[12:04:42] 2nd Lt Vinai looks like he's about to explode from sheer exhilaration. "First Sergeant. It works! I have to get the bugs worked out…but by Heaven's stars the system works!" Tries to stand still…but obviously new tech discoveries don't exactly happen all the time.
[12:05:08] 1stSgt Walken: Alright alright, settle down.
[12:05:09] 1stSgt Walken laughs
[12:05:30] 1stSgt Walken: Deep breaths. I'll let the Major know you wanna see im.
[12:06:10] 2nd Lt Vinai manages to, with a bit of tightening of his calves, chest and biceps, manages to stand still.
[12:06:23] 1stSgt Walken returns.
[12:06:44] 1stSgt Walken: Okay, he's got a few minutes. Just cut to the chase son.
[12:07:28] 2nd Lt Vinai nods fervently and excuses himself past the First Sergeant. "Understood. MAJOR! Perfect Sight!" Max indeed cut to the chase.
[12:08:24] Maj. Kavashera: Lieutenant. That’s great. What is it?
[12:08:41] 2nd Lt Vinai: "The elimination of the blind spot."
[12:08:52] Maj. Kavashera: Oh this i have to see.
[12:08:58] Maj. Kavashera sits back
[12:09:11] GM: Free RP y’all, all y’all
[12:09:14] GM: just sayin
[12:09:58] 2nd Lt Vinai slowly put down his data pad and 3 helmets. After about 2 minutes each helmet was in the position of a triangle. One of which was on the Major's desk. "Sir if you could please put the helmet on your desk on?"
[12:10:14] CWO2 Sarah: (( yes, we know. ))
[12:10:16] CWO2 Sarah: (( hehehe ))
[12:10:20] Lt. Ishida nods and smiles at the Motor Pool Sgt. Then after leaving the armor checks on Sarah
[12:10:48] Maj. Kavashera: I'm not gonna get lice am I?
[12:10:55] Maj. Kavashera says as he puts the helmet on
[12:11:06] CWO2 Sarah tries to get herself nice and cleaned up, wording her report in her head even as she does so.
[12:11:24] 2nd Lt Vinai: "No sir…completely clean sir. Now tell me what you see currently. It should be just a straight forward view of…well..me and the door behind me."
[12:11:37] Maj. Kavashera: Roger that
[12:12:36] 2nd Lt Vinai walks back to the datapad and begins his finger sliding skills (giggity!). "Now Sir…your vision is going to go black for 30 seconds as the Perfect Sight software syncs up with the other two helmets."
[12:13:03] Maj. Kavashera: Okay,
[12:13:20] GM: Note that the helmet wont totally black out, just the HUD display
[12:13:24] GM: display
[12:13:42] Lt. Jaron finally cleaned up and in CVR with some cushiony soils inserts. He waits for Sarah outside.
[12:13:56] 2nd Lt Vinai completes the procedure as he did previous. "Now sir, when the HUD display comes up…you will actually be able to see directly behind you without even moving your head".
[12:14:24] Maj. Kavashera turns his head, then stands up and walks around the area.
[12:15:09] 2nd Lt Vinai notes his office is completely visible on all angles. "Sir…it may be a bit disorienting at first so please be careful."
[12:15:13] CWO2 Sarah cleans herself up and sighs, relaxing, getting her uniform on. She glances out at the FOB and ponders about armors, considering the situation.
[12:15:43] GM: Sarah and Suki exit the shower facility together.
[12:16:12] 2nd Lt Vinai: "Currently you have the visual abilities of an insect. Able to see all angles about yourself. This is due to photosynced triangulation."
[12:16:27] GM: Facility
[12:16:38] Lt. Jaron was waiting on some creates nearby and waves to Sarah and Suki "You ready to report to Major?"
[12:16:42] Maj. Kavashera: I see that
[12:17:21] 2nd Lt Vinai: "The more feeds, the more finely accurate the vision becomes. I ran an impromptu test in the field with Lt. Ishida in the field."
[12:17:23] Maj. Kavashera: Be interesting to see this tested in combat.
[12:17:31] Maj. Kavashera: Really?
[12:17:35] Maj. Kavashera: And how did that pan out?
[12:17:53] 2nd Lt Vinai: "Yes Sir. She smiled at me. Think I got her excited."
[12:17:57] CWO2 Sarah nods just a little bit. "Was planning to get my armor on first, but outside of that, yes."
[12:18:06] Maj. Kavashera: That’s high praise from her.
[12:18:10] 2nd Lt Vinai: ((not sure if she was looking at me or nearby..I don't recall))
[12:18:37] 2nd Lt Vinai: "That test was with 4 available feeds. Which effectively gave her view of the for cardinal compass directions.
[12:19:03] Lt. Jaron nods to Sarah "Alright, I shall wait. Just a tip; soil inserts"
[12:19:57] 2nd Lt Vinai: "It's still a work in progress, as I still have to worry about the sync time. But I'm sure that can be easily programmed. The only variable I'm worried about is human response."
[12:20:00] CWO2 Sarah nods just a little bit at that. "Right…" She glances to Suki and smiles a little, then heads to get her armor.
[12:20:08] Maj. Kavashera: Hmm, Okay, I'm not ready to give the go ahead just yet, I want more results, so, if Ishida is game, integrate her FIST team and we'll use that as the test bed. If it's solid, I'll get with my staff and see about full integration.
[12:20:43] 2nd Lt Vinai nods. "Right away sir."
[12:20:51] Maj. Kavashera: Good work, dismissed.
[12:21:34] GM: isn’t that sole inserts?
[12:22:00] 2nd Lt Vinai gives a crisp salute, then collects his items up before leaving the office. Just as he gets about 5 feet from the 1st Sgt's desk he lets out a loud, "HELL YEA!"
[12:22:02] CWO2 Sarah: (( lol ))
[12:22:16] Lt. Jaron: (whatever…its under my feet )
[12:22:38] 1stSgt Walken: Heh, good on ya kid!
[12:23:30] Lt. Ishida nods at the wave
[12:23:30] CWO2 Sarah: (( *groans* ))
[12:23:39] CWO2 Sarah: (( corny, really corny. ))
[12:24:21] 2nd Lt Vinai stopped and looked to the scenic area. "First the team. Then the company. Before long. The entire UEMC will know the name Maximillian Vinai. Creator…of the Perfect Sight!" He couldn't be anymore puffed up if he was a balloon tied to a helium tank. He walked off with a strut, he had work to do, but for now he wanted to gloat and bask in his own greatness.
[12:24:26] CWO2 Sarah gives Suki a big squeeze along her way, before going to get her armor all nice and strapped on.
[12:25:08] GM: Sarah and Jaron, you are asked to report, Suki, Utenaru and the other platoon leaders are also present, (along with the gunny and the 1st Sgt)
[12:25:49] Lt. Jaron heads there with the others
[12:26:08] CWO2 Sarah follows right along to make her report.
[12:26:15] 2nd Lt Vinai: ((Sorry Carrie I totally read as "before going to get her nice strap on" ))
[12:26:16] Maj. Kavashera: Glad to see you back in one piece, good work out there.
[12:26:20] Maj. Kavashera looks at Sarah.
[12:26:36] Maj. Kavashera: And I apologize at the compromising position we put you in, clothing wise.
[12:26:54] GM: Suki has taught her well
[12:27:20] CWO2 Sarah laughs just a little at that and blushes slightly. "Not a problem, sir.."
[12:27:31] Maj. Kavashera nods
[12:27:34] Maj. Kavashera: Very well then
[12:27:38] Maj. Kavashera: Report.
[12:28:16] GM: As Sarah begins, a private brings coffee tea etc to those present at the meeting.
[12:29:33] CWO2 Sarah: (( *yawns* kk ))
[12:29:52] GM: Well who ever wants to begin, up to you
[12:30:00] CWO2 Sarah: (( hehehehehe ))
[12:30:03] GM: unless you want me to cutscene it
[12:30:08] GM: I can do that too
[12:31:23] Lt. Jaron: "Sir, deep in the caves. They have a platform that lifts the materials away. In this chamber there is old bearman catwalks, offices and such. Forces there are high. I did note exiting from an office new Haydonites and what I assume are a new type of Reaver. Slender, they were escorting an alien. Even thou the alien had a cloak on, its furry long tail stuck out"
[12:32:34] UEMC Sgt. enters the area and the major nods him in. The Sgt plops down a briefcase sized device, Jaron and Sarah recognize it as the item brought back from the mine cart. The Sgt hooks a few wires to a monitor and video begins to feed, but is paused.
[12:33:13] GM: ((no cloak, rather, loose fitting clothing))
[12:33:29] CWO2 Sarah nods just a little bit from that, hmming, and considering. "There were focusing arrays along both the platforms, those would make smaller targets to disable the system. I noticed mail tubes running nearly right to there, so slipping something small in, or a bomb, might not be difficult in theory…" She ponders it a little bit. "Unless the tubes are blocked off somewhere."
[12:34:01] Maj. Kavashera nods. Then looks at Jaron
[12:34:11] Maj. Kavashera: Tell me more about that alien.
[12:35:31] Lt. Jaron: "Not much to go on. Human sized and a tail"
[12:35:45] Maj. Kavashera looks over at Utenaru.
[12:35:55] Lt. Utenaru: Garudan?
[12:36:01] Maj. Kavashera: Garudan.
[12:36:15] UEMC Lt.: Great, just, great.
[12:36:30] Lt. Ishida: Would explain the brainwashing.
[12:36:31] Lt. Jaron: "in this escort, there was two slender Reavers in front and in back. Another normal Reaver was beside the alien, the Reaver had a pole arm. Following them was a haydonite"
[12:36:55] GySgt Kofflyn: Brass gets a load of this and we have a political shit storm on our hands.
[12:37:17] 1stSgt Walken: Ain't that the truth.
[12:37:33] Maj. Kavashera rises his hand to pause you Jaron
[12:37:34] Lt. Jaron quirks a brow "Seems to be our lot; everything’s political"
[12:37:44] Maj. Kavashera nods
[12:37:53] Maj. Kavashera rubs the bridge of his nose.
[12:38:22] Maj. Kavashera: Okay, you are SURE you saw a tail?
[12:38:48] Lt. Jaron: "100% sir"
[12:39:03] Maj. Kavashera pauses and looks Jaron dead in the eye.
[12:39:06] Maj. Kavashera: Okay.
[12:39:13] Maj. Kavashera: I'm sold.
[12:39:54] Lt. Jaron doesn’t flinch "Curious sir….how are the Garudan relations with the Bearmen?"
[12:40:42] Maj. Kavashera: This we need to call in, Kofflyn, I'll type up the memo, I want you to have this hand delivered. A copy to Hav'weth, and a copy to Naval Intelligence.
[12:41:07] Maj. Kavashera: Garudans are our allies. They are a part of the Sentinel Charter.
[12:41:32] Lt. Jaron: "Rogue cats who didn’t wish to join?"
[12:41:44] Maj. Kavashera: At any rate, I'm going to order any wild theories to be killed right now, let Intel tackle this.
[12:42:06] Maj. Kavashera: I'm sure, after they get the memo we will be seeing them REAL soon.
[12:42:10] Maj. Kavashera rolls his eyes.
[12:42:39] Maj. Kavashera: Okay, continue, slender Reavers.
[12:44:06] Lt. Jaron nods "Exactly like the others; just slender builds. Female perhaps or just build for speed"
[12:44:35] Maj. Kavashera: Hmm, okay, we'll have to add that to the war book. Gunny, we have video of them?
[12:45:35] Lt. Jaron describes the polearm as well
[12:45:48] GySgt Kofflyn toggles the feed forward then shakes his head.
[12:45:51] GySgt Kofflyn: Negative
[12:46:12] Maj. Kavashera: Ishida, you're the resident expert, what say you?
[12:46:21] Lt. Jaron: "Yea there from coming out of an office onto catwalks"
[12:46:22] Lt. Ishida thinks
[12:46:31] Lt. Jaron: (they were)
[12:46:58] Lt. Ishida: Slender build would indicate speed. If they were escorting someone important, maybe a bodyguard class.
[12:47:12] Lt. Ishida nods to Jaron
[12:48:23] Maj. Kavashera: Okay, so new type, lets call them bodyguards for now.
[12:49:13] Maj. Kavashera: They might be an analog to our VR-041's used by the Secret Service.
[12:49:43] Maj. Kavashera: Okay, this polearm
[12:49:47] Maj. Kavashera: That’s new
[12:50:42] Lt. Jaron: "Maybe they're taking tactics from Lt. Ishida"
[12:51:14] Maj. Kavashera: God help us
[12:51:18] Lt. Jaron: "Imitating"
[12:51:23] GM: Others laugh
[12:51:31] Lt. Ishida blushes
[12:52:05] Lt. Jaron: "Think about it though. We evolved to fight them; so now they are trying to adapt"
[12:52:23] Maj. Kavashera: Possible, at this point I'm not discounting anything.
[12:52:37] Maj. Kavashera: However lets go with what we know.
[12:52:40] CWO2 Sarah glances over at Suki and smiles just a little at her, for a moment.
[12:53:59] Maj. Kavashera: We have a new type Reaver, some big wig down here with us, and a garuden
[12:54:14] Maj. Kavashera: And the one with the cleaver.
[12:54:17] Maj. Kavashera: Thoughts?
[12:54:25] Lt. Ishida: [1d100] =>  = (49)
[12:54:33] Lt. Ishida: Slave master.
[12:54:52] 1stSgt Walken: These are some sick toasters.
[12:55:25] UEMC Lt.: Must be watching old earth vids, seeing what scares the crap out of us, and using that on us.
[12:55:59] Lt. Utenaru: Psychological warfare at it's best.
[12:56:28] Lt. Jaron: "The Reavers in the tunnels used basically cattle pods on the slaves. I had proof of that"
[12:56:43] Maj. Kavashera nods
[12:56:47] Maj. Kavashera: Anything else?
[12:57:06] Lt. Jaron looks to Sarah
[12:57:09] Maj. Kavashera: Tell us everything, no matter how inconsequential you might think it is.
[12:57:35] CWO2 Sarah hmms a little. "Raihan mentioned yellow eyes and a female voice as being part of the slave master…" She ponders that, and glances over. "Yes, but they all obeyed without question anyway, and showed utterly no remorse when taking that dead one off the cart and throwing them into the pit. Like they didn't even care."
[12:57:55] CWO2 Sarah frowns slightly.
[12:58:02] Maj. Kavashera nods
[12:58:05] Lt. Jaron: "I don’t know if it was caught on the vid, the chamber also had two Revenants up high:
[12:58:06] Lt. Jaron: "
[12:58:22] Maj. Kavashera looks at the vid but it doesn’t have that
[12:58:27] Maj. Kavashera: Good to know
[12:58:53] 1stSgt Walken: Those suckers'll ruin your day…
[12:59:08] GM: others in the room nod in agreement
[12:59:10] CWO2 Sarah cringes at the thought and nods.
[12:59:48] GM: Sarah perc or an IQ
[12:59:58] Lt. Jaron: "About the platforms they didn’t really lifts away but actually folded the materials away in case that isn’t there as well"
[01:00:24] GM: The room goes still
[01:00:30] Maj. Kavashera: Folded?
[01:00:36] Maj. Kavashera: As in space folded?
[01:00:45] CWO2 Sarah nods a little bit at that. "Folded. Completely locally."
[01:00:49] Lt. Utenaru: Oh hell.
[01:00:56] Lt. Jaron nods "Yea but the looks of it or some sort of teleportation"
[01:01:27] Maj. Kavashera: Intel will have a field day with this.
[01:01:40] Maj. Kavashera: The ramifications of this are staggering
[01:02:07] Maj. Kavashera: No wonder the enemy was able to flank us at every turn.
[01:02:48] Lt. Ishida: Bring your troops in behind the lines using bases of operations you set up prior to the onset of hostilities…
[01:03:02] Lt. Ishida: ((bases of operations))
[01:03:19] 1stSgt Walken: Rat bastard SOB's!
[01:04:03] Lt. Utenaru: Must mean they have at least on on Tirol, if Rayn is any indicator, they must be folding in labor from off world.
[01:04:56] Lt. Jaron: "That’s some heavy there."
[01:05:11] Maj. Kavashera nods
[01:06:08] CWO2 Sarah nods just a little bit at that. "And folding every bit of Sekiton they can get mined out of the mountain, as quick as they can when they aren't using the tools that the Karbarrans left in the mine…" She glances to Jaron and forward again. "Wonder why they aren't using the loaders and such, if their slaves are so loyal."
[01:06:29] Lt. Ishida: [1d100] =>  = (20)
[01:06:41] Lt. Ishida: Torture.
[01:06:52] Lt. Ishida: The wish to cause them pain.
[01:07:00] Maj. Kavashera nods
[01:07:29] Maj. Kavashera: Have to agree, if they needed the ore they would be using the most efficient way possible to get it.
[01:07:33] Lt. Jaron: "So they are taking prisoners from Tirol and sending them here?"
[01:08:11] Maj. Kavashera: This tells me two things, one, they don’t need it and are just being asses, or, they have what they need already, and are just using up civilians.
[01:08:14] CWO2 Sarah nods a little at that. "True enough…" She hmms at that. "considering how many more slaves there were, I'd guess so, at least." She frowns, trying to give an estimate on how many more slaves were seen.
[01:08:20] Maj. Kavashera nods at Jaron
[01:08:41] Maj. Kavashera: Would explain the lack of accountability on the slaves here.
[01:08:52] UEMC Lt.: No marks, no tagging.
[01:09:03] GySgt Kofflyn: Don’t care a lick
[01:10:27] Lt. Ishida: Exterminate the enemy via labor, you get rid of the enemy and get the fruits of the labor as a bonus. I believe you westerners have the saying, frosting on the cake.
[01:10:46] Lt. Jaron: "They why stay here? If they got what they need, why waste the manpower? Let the slaves run their course and eventually the slaves would die. Maybe there is someone or something else behind this op"
[01:10:46] Lt. Utenaru sighs
[01:10:51] Lt. Utenaru then nods
[01:11:09] Maj. Kavashera: Good question.
[01:12:10] Maj. Kavashera: At any rate, we have a job to do. I'm sure some of that will change once this get back to command. But for now, lets focus on our tasking.
[01:12:40] Maj. Kavashera: Right now we have a lot of non combatants in the mix, so we have to take that into consideration.
[01:13:00] Maj. Kavashera: be a lot easier to just go in and reduce the place, but, history would look badly on us if we did.
[01:13:19] Lt. Jaron nods
[01:13:58] Maj. Kavashera: Okay, so, lets pause on our probing operations for now, and focus on opening up routes for our forces to enter.
[01:14:42] Maj. Kavashera: Once Intel chews this over I'm sure they will want us to do things different, but for now, lets at least get our boys a way in.
[01:16:12] Lt. Jaron looks at the map "Do we have any intel on the way we closed off?"
[01:16:41] Lt. Jaron: (north of the slave chamber we liberated)
[01:17:21] Maj. Kavashera: Negative, all of our operations have been focused south. But we do know that the enemy has some forces north, since they are still trying to get at that firebase.
[01:18:22] Maj. Kavashera: So far they haven’t tried to end run and come down that main trunk, so, we might have some command personality conflicts going on, but..
[01:20:24] Lt. Jaron: "Well until Maeless returns with her report, we have are still going head on at this. Which effectively isn’t very sound."
[01:21:17] Lt. Jaron ponders "We can plan to another recon to the north and follow this vein here.", he points on the map
[01:21:44] Maj. Kavashera: That would put us smack dab in front of the enemy rescue teams.
[01:22:16] Lt. Jaron: "We have reports them?"
[01:22:24] Maj. Kavashera nods
[01:22:51] UEMC Lt.: My boys tell me that Sandy is doing her able best, but those damn clankers are still digging.
[01:23:37] UEMC Lt.: So far she's got them thinking the entire area is unstable, but, they keep coming.
[01:24:26] UEMC Lt.: Which begs the question? You want me to toss back all the armor and such we found and just collapse the area and let them have it?
[01:24:39] Lt. Jaron: "I say let them in. Lay some mines and ordnance in the slave chamber"
[01:24:56] Maj. Kavashera: Hmm, keep that as Plan B, for now, I like the idea of making them waste time and effort.
[01:25:06] Lt. Jaron nods
[01:25:22] Maj. Kavashera: If we lay mines they;ll know UEEF is in the mountain, so far we've kept them oblivious to that fact.
[01:25:38] Maj. Kavashera: Lord knows what they will do if they think their hidey hole is infested.
[01:26:04] Maj. Kavashera: And right now, with no backup, we're one Company.
[01:26:21] Lt. Jaron: "I think they know sir; just not the force"
[01:26:29] Maj. Kavashera: Possibly.
[01:27:06] Maj. Kavashera: Either way, I don’t intend to provoke them any more then we already have, until I can guarantee we can exploit the situation.
[01:27:23] Lt. Jaron nods
… Back to Above!
