Chapter 4 Act 1 - Part 3


[07:29:13] Narrator: Oh Dark Thirty, the technicians work to repair the damage wrought upon the CAP aircraft during last nights ruckus. Lurana's, Suki's and Ay's Alpha are in working order and have been reloaded and rearmed with the older EU-13 gunpods while the 15's under go repairs. The Beta's require their gun mounts to be removed to access the root of the problem and Jaron's Alpha is undergoing what repairs the techs can accomplish, mainly repairing the nearby armor and internal systems that were damaged when the arm detonated. Replacements will need to be acquired. (dt)
[07:30:45] Narrator: Lt. Mitchell, having agreed with Jaron that a salvage operation would be beneficial has given the go ahead to the Marines to sally forth to recover what they can from the Haydonite wreckage. (dt Okay, thanks…)
[07:33:02] Narrator: The Haydonite Lord General , aware now that the UEEF has a larger, and more potent contingent in the Northern Wastes has ordered his underlings to quash any resistance. The fall of Tirol must be total!
[07:33:35] GM: Annnnd…GO!
[07:35:13] Lt. Jaron suits for the trek into the desert "Lurana; we taking silvers out or getting dropped?"
[07:36:42] Lt. Ishida is awake after a 'comfortable' evening within the Beta's cargobay and adhoc tent. She is in her CVR-3, helmet off. She does her kata's with her katana, slow and methodical, artful and deadly.
[07:36:47] Lt. Fallnya: "Not sure, i didn't know if we were gonna do that or what sence were pilots not salvage techs… but i do know a thing or two about doing it…I suppose we could use Silvers and M599's"
[07:37:07] 2 Lt. Komillia is checking her Biroid out, before looking around for the rest of the group.
[07:37:42] Lt. Fallnya befor he gets fully set up she takes a cop of one more feel of him while no ones looking and kisses him (whispering) "Btw did you like last night?" she smiles
[07:37:51] 2 Lt. Gamjin is regretting that Meatloaf MRE he had not long ago and is running for the nearest latrine, for the second time today.
[07:38:38] CWO Amdahl moves to her Beta, sighing softly as she goes to check the damage more thoroughly. She smiles to Suki, raising her eyebrows a little bit, making sure to give her… a little room.
[07:38:40] Lt. Fallnya: (lol komi walking in would prolly be funny on fall and jaron having a lil fun)
[07:40:42] 2 Lt. Komillia: I may consider taking up hunting and seeing if there is any desert animals out there that are edible before even looking at another MRE again. And good God, hijack a room or go join the mile high club or something.
[07:40:45] 2nd Lt. Alleria squirms a lil in her sleeping area trying to catch a few more hours not wanting to get up at all
[07:40:51] Lt. Jaron smiles and nods "Yes, you know I did."
[07:41:30] 2Lt. Madresa paces the base, peering in at her Alpha and the repairs on it. She ponders a little bit, wandering towards mess to see if something outside a MRE is available, or at least something to drink.
[07:41:36] Lt. Ishida finishes her cutting practice and then dons her VR-038 and walks to the tent known to house Alleria. Suki wakes her by dumping her out of her cot.
[07:41:52] CWO Amdahl: (( rofl ))
[07:42:21] Lt. Ishida: Be on the airfiled in fullkit and cyclone in 4 minutes.
[07:42:24] 2nd Lt. Alleria just grumbles and lies there naked sept for panties and a top luckily coverd by the cot flippe don her
[07:43:01] 2 Lt. Komillia grumbles about her stomach then goes to suit up.
[07:43:05] Lt. Ishida returns to the airfiled and sitting sieza…no easy feat in a cyclone waits for Alleria, checking her chrono for punctuality.
[07:43:29] 2 Lt. Gamjin is still making the bathroom stink, so he'll be a while longer.
[07:43:43] CWO Amdahl glances to Suki. "Wanting all of us there, ma'am?"
[07:43:58] GM: Gamjin can see the horseflies vacate the area, with tiny suit cases and their young in tow.
[07:44:12] CWO Amdahl: (( LOL ))
[07:44:22] Lt. Ishida: No Chief, just Alleria.
[07:44:30] 2nd Lt. Alleria wont make it as she comes stumbling out finally her cyclones on the airfield any way so suki's request was a bit beyond her capabiliees
[07:44:59] CWO Amdahl nods just a little bit. "Yes, ma'am." She slips off to check back on her Beta then, and annoy the techs by watching them work.
[07:45:34] Lt. Ishida waits for Alleria to return with her cyclone, then stands as she does.
[07:45:53] 2 Lt. Komillia hears the last comment and goes to find a place to lie down and try to forget her meal.
[07:46:14] Lt. Jaron walks out to the rest.
[07:46:17] 2nd Lt. Alleria clambers over obviously not well trained in the use of her cyclone and stumbles over a small ripple in the sand
[07:46:24] Lt. Ishida: Lt. Alleria, you did very well out there yesterday, however, you did something that was inexcusable.
[07:46:41] Lt. Ishida: Do you know what that was?
[07:46:56] Miya Ukikazi finally arrives just in CVR with her pack on her back
[07:47:03] 2nd Lt. Alleria: "No Mam"
[07:47:18] CWO Amdahl: (( and the crossovers continue ))
[07:47:32] 2nd Lt. Alleria: (err shoot me)
[07:47:38] Lt. Fallnya finally arrives just in CVR with her pack on her back
[07:47:56] Lt. Ishida: You expended your entire missile load in one shot, missing in the process. That action took you out of the fight, you became useless, and we cannot have our pilots become useless. Do you understand?
[07:48:59] 2nd Lt. Alleria some young pup spirit shows as she flushes red "YEa and how many times have you ran out in a fight miss perfect?"
[07:49:34] Lt. Ishida: That is not the point and you would do wwell to consider your reporting procedures, Second…Lieutenant.
[07:49:37] 2nd Lt. Alleria: (that and im sure ishida's came close to)
[07:50:32] 2nd Lt. Alleria: "Sorry mam im just not as acustomed to being a Rio"
[07:50:40] Lt. Ishida nods
[07:51:36] Lt. Fallnya comes up behind Ishida "Singled you outa troopie have we?" *with a whisper*
[07:51:53] Lt. Ishida: Regardless, consider this a lesson learned, now, you will be running lines. In your cyclone, powered down, one for every two missiles launched. And I, will be doing them with you, in my cyclone, powered down. I am your flight lead, and I flaied you by not ensureing you were instructed properly.
[07:52:41] GM: failed, and ensuring
[07:54:33] Lt. Ishida powers down her cyclone, and that of Alleria and then taking a starting position yells. 'Hajime!' and begins her punishment.
[07:56:29] 2nd Lt. Alleria tries to move but cannot after powering down the armor and other gear beyond her limits and she just falls foward and has to crawl
[07:56:42] Lt. Jaron takes a breath and walks "Do really thats is wise right before a trip into the sand?"
[07:57:05] GM: Who is Jaron talking to?
[07:57:26] Lt. Jaron: (anyone who listens)
[07:57:48] GM: kk, Suki would be out of earshot then, as would alleria…
[07:58:11] Lt. Fallnya: "I dont belive those two will be joining us… if were going… i thought the salvage techs would be going if you did sugjest we salvage what we could?"
[07:59:20] 2Lt. Madresa meanders back from Mess after a while, smiling a little bit. She wanders back towards the repair area, to see if she can take a peek at the mecha fixes, hoping hers won't take too long, and that she can take it to the flight line again.
[08:00:24] GM: The fixes that Sarah and Ay observe are going well, okay, the tech move efficiantly enough, but they are having trouble making due, and some of their solutions aren't exactly…recommended by the manual.
[08:01:02] Lt. Fallnya: "Any way follow me lets go talk with the base commander see what he wants us to do specially while most of us are still out of commission after mechanical failures and your… well major mechanical failure"
[08:01:08] GM: Case in point, you will have one of the few EU-15's with duct tape holding wires in place…
[08:01:32] 2Lt. Madresa frowns at that, scratching her head and taking note of the fixes, and solutions, eyes widening.
[08:01:38] GM: had to do it
[08:02:37] 2Lt. Madresa: (( rofl. A malfunction that major would have her dragging him to the doctor for the little blue pills. ;p ))
[08:02:57] Lt. Mitchell: Ah, Lieutenant's early morning then. Coffee?
[08:03:22] Lt. Jaron nods and follows
[08:04:12] Lt. Fallnya: "No thanks, just was hoping to see what we could do around here, Specially since most of my planes are out of commission except mine… my wingman wanted to join the salvage crews at the Haydonite wrecks, but i wanted to check with you to see how we could help."
[08:05:46] Lt. Mitchell: Well, they are your men, and in a pinch even your downed fighters will be adaquete enough to hold the line until help can arrive. You have ground units with you, We can do without a Hummer or a Silverback for an afternoon…
[08:06:19] Lt. Mitchell: That is of course if you can get your bioroid pilots off the pot…
[08:07:46] Lt. Fallnya: "Saw Lt Komi this morning she seemed ok and ill see if she can rouse her brother off the pot and see if we can get something done."
[08:08:14] 2 Lt. Gamjin begins to sneeze and rub his burning ears wondering who's talking about him.
[08:08:30] CWO Amdahl frowns at some of the fixes herself, shaking her head and stepping out and wandering towards the airfield, before stopping to think, then turning around and wandering into the camp further.
[08:09:26] GM: As Suki and Alleria reach their half way point of their punishment the fatigue and burn sets in hard, but Suki keep going and has her hand on Alleria's shoulder, helping her along.
[08:10:05] Lt. Ishida: Don't give out on me Marine! Half way! -pant- You can do it.
[08:10:38] 2nd Lt. Alleria tries to get into her pack trying to get her canteen almost falling over every lil dune we hit as shes not a strong type
[08:10:58] Lt. Jaron speaks up as he stands beside Lurana "Do you have th rough location of the separated cockpit of the Haydonite?"
[08:11:38] Lt. Mitchell: Well, your the ones who bagged it…
[08:12:47] Lt. Fallnya: "I have an approximate location depending if he got out and moved away long as the wind hasnt blown much we should be able to track it easily in the sand
[08:12:52] Lt. Fallnya: "If it walks of course"
[08:13:12] Lt. Mitchell nods
[08:15:48] Lt. Fallnya: "How ever if were gonna go look for the pilot i would suggest split team of cyclones possibly 2 t, 1 back, and an M599 hummer
[08:15:52] Lt. Mitchell: Well, the jeeps are yours if you need them. You have our freqs, I would suggest you set up some air cover if you need it, you might not be the only ones looking for the pilot.
[08:16:45] Lt. Fallnya: or an M599, my Alpha since its the only one still in full condition, and the rest who don't fit in the hummer on cyclones."
[08:17:00] Lt. Mitchell: I'll leave it up to you.
[08:17:13] Lt. Mitchell salutes and goes back to his other duties.
[08:17:31] Lt. Jaron salutes
[08:17:42] Lt. Fallnya salutes
[08:18:37] Lt. Fallnya calls the others opening more private channel to every one (radio:basic [1d100] => [46] = (46) vs 78%)
[08:18:53] Lt. Fallnya: "Hitman squad report all hands"
[08:19:00] GM: Done, anyone with their CVR-3 helm on can hear you.
[08:19:32] Lt. Ishida stops and wheezes 'Hit…hitman 1-1 here.
[08:19:47] Lt. Jaron asks Lurana "So you going to fly cover for us while we dance in the sand?"
[08:19:55] Lt. Ishida puts her hand on Alleria's shoulder to stop her and makes a wait gesture with her hand
[08:20:17] 2 Lt. Komillia seems to have borrowed some art supplies from somewhere and is doing a crude drawing and trying to figure how to do a custom paint scheme to make her Bioroid look a bit like Gurren Lagann.
[08:20:20] Lt. Fallnya: (should be every one in the deployment situation, unless there on the can or eating
[08:20:26] Lt. Ishida: Take 5
[08:20:32] Lt. Ishida whispers off line to Alleria
[08:21:02] 2nd Lt. Alleria nods and faints collapsing into the sand her canteen still closed as she couldn't get it open
[08:21:19] CWO Amdahl blinks down at her helmet and sticks it on idly. "Hitman 3-1 here."
[08:21:36] Lt. Ishida: Settles down and turns Alleria and sits her up and pulls her helmet off and opening her canteen feeds her the water.
[08:22:21] 2nd Lt. Alleria cause its to cold she ends up vomiting it up and rolls onto her side "Dam i should have stayed out of the cold water if i knew you were gonna do this to me…"
[08:22:36] 2 Lt. Komillia looks up from her drawing, "Here."
[08:22:53] 2 Lt. Gamjin grumbles, "Listening."
[08:23:20] Lt. Ishida nods and wipes Alleria's mouth clean of her sick and offers the canteen again.
[08:23:24] Lt. Fallnya: "I want every one on the airfield in 30 mins, were going dirt hunting for a Haydonite pilot to squeeze
[08:23:25] 2Lt. Madresa glances up. "I'm here, was watching the repairs. Should they be putting duct tape on an EU-15? I somehow doubt it's in the list of repair procedures…"
[08:24:19] CWO Amdahl blinks. "Acknowledged. Should we bring our Cyclones, then?"
[08:24:46] Lt. Fallnya: "In fold up condition were borrowing a M599 or two"
[08:25:07] CWO Amdahl: Acknowledged.
[08:25:25] 2Lt. Madresa: Right… Be right there..
[08:25:42] 2Lt. Madresa wanders off to get her Cyclone, so she can haul it to the airfield.
[08:26:09] CWO Amdahl hurries herself along for the Cyc, rolling it to the field and folding it down quickly.
[08:26:38] Lt. Fallnya: (ick… you know i find that stupid they didn't give Drive: Automobile as a common skill like most of the other rift systems…)
[08:27:03] 2 Lt. Komillia: "Do you want Bioroid support, or should the Battloid Pilots be in Cyclone gear as well?"
[08:27:13] GM: Well, I was thinking about that, and it made sense, when you live in space ships and on space stations…do you really use a car?
[08:27:46] Lt. Fallnya: (depends on the size of the station/ship SDF-1 and 3 they prolly still use them)
[08:29:15] Lt. Fallnya: "I have yet to decide that for you 3 in any case move your bioroids to the airfield and cyclones as well, just in case i want to see what is still in operation on the team first"
[08:30:43] Lt. Ishida reengages the power to Alleria's cyclone and helps her to her feet. "There you go. Okay, so, no more missile dumps okay. You still owe me 4 more lines, but they can wait." She pats Alleria on the back. "Get something to eat and get some shade.
[08:31:17] 2nd Lt. Alleria: "If your going im goin im part of the team ill be ok"
[08:31:25] 2 Lt. Komillia: Roger. Gamjin finish dumping your load and get your Condor.
[08:31:34] 2 Lt. Gamjin: Very well.
[08:31:36] Lt. Ishida: It wasn't a suggestion , now, flee before me.
[08:31:39] Lt. Ishida: no = now
[08:32:10] 2nd Lt. Alleria turns down her suit and goes back onto her line running
[08:32:49] Lt. Ishida grabs her shoulder to stop her. "Ly, Maybe I wasn't clear, while I admire your zeal to finish, I want you to eat and rest. Now."
[08:33:29] 2nd Lt. Alleria sighs "Fine, Mam…." she turns it back and changes to bike and rides back
[08:33:59] 2 Lt. Gamjin finishes his business and then suits up and gets his condor moved.
[08:34:12] Lt. Ishida: Not 'fine ma'am…'Yes Ma'am."
[08:34:26] 2nd Lt. Alleria on the way back mutters something about Ishida reminding her of how strict mom was
[08:34:30] 2 Lt. Komillia first brings out her Saber, than rides in her Bioroid to the field.
[08:34:48] Lt. Ishida hears the muttering and smiles, her goal achieved.
[08:35:15] 2nd Lt. Alleria tries to dust the 038 with her med cyclone
[08:36:07] Lt. Fallnya turns to Jaron "Quick mush eggs and undercooked bacon for breakfast?"
[08:37:38] CWO Amdahl: (( *sticks a diaper on Alleria* ))
[08:38:47] CWO Amdahl: (( if none of us has drive:automobile, we'll just have to use a Silverback and Cyclones. ))
[08:38:49] Lt. Jaron shakes head "what appeared to be fruit"
[08:39:45] Lt. Fallnya smiles and heads with him to the mesh tent to grab what appears to be an apple or orange and walks on her way to the flight line to wait
[08:40:20] Lt. Ishida walks over, her cyclone still unpowered, up to Lurana. "What is the call?"
[08:41:54] Lt. Fallnya: (actually thats one skill i still don't think humanity would have forgotten even not using one in a long time x.x like riding a bike)
[08:42:35] GM: Consider the use of automobiles in the UEG/UEEF to be akin to automobile use in the US in the early 1900's
[08:42:55] GM: Common, but, rare at the same time,
[08:43:20] Lt. Jaron comments to Lurana "Only 2 person per hummer; with cyclones stored away in the rear. Maybe one can hang onto the back of the hummer thou in their cyclone"
[08:43:29] LT. Magna: well rested today.
[08:43:51] GM: I see the use of Auto's having dropped out of public usage due to the nature of the beast, most don;t learn because they aren't expected to and most never will
[08:44:37] Lt. Fallnya: "I was actually Hoping to speak to you and use your tactical mind" *she munches on her fruit politely while talking "I'm currently thinking of sending the better members on ground who ever has the best salvaging skills to see what we can get from the downed pod, and capture the pilot."
[08:44:53] Lt. Fallnya: (bt the hummers can hold 6 ppl in CVR-3 / CBR-5
[08:45:18] Lt. Ishida: Sounds fun. I was thinking of heading into Point R to get a new arm and maybe some pylons for those TV guided shots.
[08:46:10] Lt. Fallnya: "We can do that to after we capture the pilot, that and we would need to take him her or it to point R any way for interrogation and to be torn apart correct if its machine?"
[08:46:43] Lt. Jaron: (yea but not included their cyclones)
[08:47:04] Lt. Fallnya: (i think the trunk could hold 2 cyclones)
[08:47:05] 2Lt. Madresa nods just a little bit. "Considering they were duct taping wires on EU-15s, among other things, I just hope our mechs will /make/ it to Point R afterwards."
[08:47:16] Lt. Ishida: Up to you, might be best to split our resources.
[08:47:18] Lt. Ishida shrugs
[08:48:36] 2Lt. Madresa ponders a little bit. "Maybe one of us with a unit not needing too much work could hurry back after and provide cover, depending on how busy Point R's repair facilities are. Mine just needs a reload and new gun pod."
[08:49:34] Lt. Fallnya: "Unfortunately we all could use a lil overhaul Lt. Madresa, I'm sure mine is just as sand packed as the rest of you alls and it wouldn't be good if mine went either then we'd all be down"
[08:50:23] Lt. Fallnya: (wich of the 3 battloid pilots has more time in service really?)
[08:50:34] Lt. Fallnya: (im thinking Magna)
[08:50:36] GM: john
[08:51:10] Lt. Ishida: At any rate, I'll head into town and see about getting the gear we need.
[08:51:22] 2 Lt. Komillia: ((brb))
[08:51:33] Lt. Ishida presses her hands behind her back at ease, her tone level and face dispassionate.
[08:52:05] Lt. Fallnya: "I was thinking we all should go to point R for overhaul, and these 3 could handle the recovery in Their Ground pounders"
[08:52:37] Lt. Jaron quirks a brow
[08:52:41] Lt. Ishida: With respect the facilities here can handle the routine maint, none of our mecha are seriously hammered, all we lack are parts, pylons, and of course, an arm.
[08:52:56] Lt. Fallnya: "True enough"
[08:53:06] Lt. Fallnya: "Who you gonna take with you?"
[08:53:33] 2nd Lt. Alleria hides behind big boob
[08:55:30] Lt. Ishida: I was thinking of tapping one of the local troops as a driver.
[08:56:21] Lt. Jaron nods to Suki
[08:57:50] Lt. Fallnya: "Alright, I'll take every one else then, Jaron, i want you in Silverback pick your self a gunner, i dont care who and who you feel you can trust more. Magna you will be in charge of our heavy ground support Komi and Gamjin will be with you in that capacity"
[08:58:19] Lt. Ishida looks over at Sarah and waves her over.
[08:58:43] CWO Amdahl looks up and wanders over to Suki, upon being waved over. "Yes, ma'am?"
[09:00:16] Lt. Ishida smiles at her, then looks over at their Legios. "You should probably fly CAP with our craft." (she says loud enough for Lu to hear) have the techs load up 13's and you should be fine. You know the craft well enough, time for you to solo." She squeezes your shoulder.
[09:01:26] Lt. Jaron points to Madresa and Alleria "Can either of you handle a turret?"
[09:02:06] CWO Amdahl pauses a little bit at that, nodding just a little. "Yes, ma'am…"
[09:02:27] Lt. Ishida musses Sarah's hair. "Go get em tiger."
[09:02:54] CWO Amdahl laughs a little at that and nods, heading over towards the Legios, looking to talk to the techs quickly.
[09:04:10] Lt. Fallnya leans over to ishida "Are you sure she can handle the full thing by her self?"
[09:04:21] Lt. Ishida: Yes
[09:04:27] Lt. Ishida says without hesitation
[09:04:40] LT. Magna: bk
[09:04:41] Lt. Fallnya: "Alright then shes your charge any way"
[09:04:43] CWO Amdahl: (Yeah, from the Beta maybe)
[09:05:07] Lt. Ishida: In fact, she would be a good resource for you in that regard, seeing as your…Beta checkride was quashed.
[09:05:09] Lt. Fallnya: (not sure the beta can fly the whole thing far as i know all plot systems move to the alpha)
[09:05:34] Lt. Jaron awaits for answers from the two
[09:05:46] CWO Amdahl: (just asked the same thing. I'd think in case the Alpha pilot got killed, it'd have to)
[09:05:57] Lt. Fallnya: (*points up for Magna to respond to being told hes in charge of the 3 ground pounders
[09:06:42] 2nd Lt. Alleria: "I can try I've never been in a Silverback before tho?"
[09:07:04] CWO Amdahl climbs into the Beta cockpit, telling the Techs to load two 13s onto the Alpha if available, and making sure it's loaded before climbing in to prep it.
[09:07:29] GM: Remember Sarah flew the Legios over Trinity while Suki spent her attacks cooridinating the nearby alphas…so, Sarah HAS flown the merged aircraft before.
[09:08:11] 2nd Lt. Alleria: "Actually i feel Alleria needs more training as a Rio, what about you Lt. Ishida?"
[09:08:19] Lt. Fallnya: "Actually i feel Alleria needs more training as a Rio, what about you Lt. Ishida?"
[09:08:40] Lt. Fallnya: "After her mistakes yesterday she needs to learn from them"
[09:09:17] Lt. Jaron: "Ok, not you Alleria. Madresa?"

[09:11:57] 2Lt. Madresa blinks a little bit. "Well, depending on the main officers sorting it out, I suppose I can try. I'm better trained with a Cyclone mind you, but just running a turret…" She shrugs.
[09:13:23] 2 Lt. Komillia is happy to be cruising in a mecha rather than almost naked in a 'Back. "Ma'am, what would it take to request a custom paint job?"
[09:13:44] Lt. Jaron nods to Madresa "You have the spot"
[09:14:08] Lt. Fallnya: "Im sure the techs Could handle it if you told them the paint job but no time now to do it"
[09:16:10] Lt. Ishida ponders regards Lurana's question
[09:16:42] 2Lt. Madresa nods just a little bit to Jaron. "Yes, sir…" She starts sticking her Cyclone onto the Silverback, trying to strap it down if she can.
[09:17:10] Lt. Ishida: Yes, she will need a lot of work, and, she seems to have discipline issues as well. If you wish I can employ a more hard hand.
[09:18:02] Lt. Fallnya: "Oh? Ill give her one shot, if she screws up as my Rio she will be eating with her gums"
[09:18:15] Lt. Ishida: Very good ma'am.
[09:18:24] 2nd Lt. Alleria hearing that she hides behind Madresa
[09:18:55] Lt. Ishida gives her a look as if to say "you should have just done your 'time' and not dusted me."
[09:19:12] Lt. Jaron radios Manga "John. You have your bioroid squad ready?"
[09:20:01] Lt. Fallnya points to alleria then to her beta as if to tell her to go get in it and moves to her alpha to begin taxing it back into the beta for hookup
[09:20:24] 2nd Lt. Alleria runs over there not wanting hit by the sizable zentradei
[09:20:43] LT. Magna: "I beleive so..Over"
[09:21:19] 2 Lt. Komillia: "Strapped and ready to go."
[09:21:21] Lt. Ishida snickers at Alleria's scampering and looks at Lu as if to say. "Good luck!"
[09:21:51] 2 Lt. Gamjin: "Condor is loaded and ready to go."
[09:21:52] Lt. Jaron replies "Excellent. Patching through aprox location" He sends the location from M599 console
[09:22:17] 2nd Lt. Alleria: (your in a back Jaron not an M599 )
[09:22:45] Lt. Fallnya after linkup she looks over to Sarah's craft "Sarah, hows your systems all good to go?"
[09:23:12] CWO Amdahl sticks with the other Legios, getting it prepped. "Seems to be, ma'am. Ready to go."
[09:23:59] 2nd Lt. Alleria thinks shes gonna loose her teeth tonight and hunkers down in the pilot seat
[09:24:20] Lt. Jaron: (thought hummer oh well)
[09:24:40] Lt. Jaron gets into driver's seat and starts it up
[09:24:42] LT. Magna: "Roger that Hitman 4-1, site coordinates received."
[09:25:08] 2Lt. Madresa settles into the gunner seat for the Back, after getting her Cyc strapped on.
[09:09:24] Narrator: Lt Ishida watches the three bioroids and their Silverback and Hummer charges leave the base and head into the desert as the Legios with her lover at the helm lifts off, she cannot help but allow a shiver of pride to run up her spine, she watches the troupe leave and then turning in her heels yells. "MITCHELL! I need a driver!"
[09:27:38] Lt. Fallnya: "God dam this is a rock…" *she radios to Suki wondering how she stands Legios form*
[09:28:26] Lt. Ishida: It takes getting used to, odd, I've been connected so long, I hardly remember what it is like to fly alone…"
[09:28:48] Lt. Fallnya: "Definitely not as nimble…"
[09:29:10] CWO Amdahl flies the other Legios, checking the flight balance a little in atmosphere since she doesn't want to fly it brick-like if it'll do better. She checks quickly, nodding just a bit to herself.
[09:29:13] Lt. Ishida: But it has it where it counts, you have speed, and your rate of climb is incredible.
[09:29:16] Lt. Fallnya: "But it is faster…" *notices were leaving the ground pounders behind and backs off and turns back… hoping Sarah gets the idea
[09:29:48] Lt. Jaron drives along on the ground below
[09:29:51] 2nd Lt. Alleria gets all bored looking mumbling to her self
[09:30:09] Lt. Ishida: Don't forget to count out your back seater, an extra set of eyes and a extra trigger finger is very useful.
[09:30:33] 2nd Lt. Alleria: (so Jaron/Madresa gonna call out what back you got and its loadout?)
[09:30:52] CWO Amdahl cuts speed and waits for the others, laughing just a little bit.
[09:31:17] 2Lt. Madresa: (( *castrates that n off her last name, and doesn't know, ask Jaron* ))
[09:31:19] 2 Lt. Komillia puts a radar lock on Lt. Fallnya to keep track of the fliers. (RSI [1d100] => [65] = (65) vs 55%)
[09:31:45] GM: Standard back, call your turret
[09:31:50] 2 Lt. Komillia frowns at her inability to keep track of the speedy legioss.
[09:32:26] Lt. Jaron: (standard rail gun)
[09:32:31] GM: roger that
[09:32:43] Lt. Fallnya: (ahh not flack huh oh whell)
[09:33:08] Lt. Jaron: (yea, mr. standard here)
[09:33:18] GM: Hehe you new callsign is Vanilla
[09:33:30] Lt. Jaron: (hehe)
[09:33:30] Lt. Fallnya: (aww i liked lover boy)
[09:34:19] Lt. Jaron glances about at the dunes abound but keeps focused on the terrain area.
[09:34:33] 2Lt. Madresa: (( lol ))
[09:35:13] Lt. Fallnya opens comm to all craft "Hows the drive down there you two"
[09:35:14] Lt. Jaron: (ahead*)
[09:35:41] Lt. Jaron replies "Lovely but need a bit more cushion in the seat"
[09:36:02] Narrator: The desert is vast, and the cool of night and early morning is long gone as you make your way deepr into the Wastes. 120 in the shade with clear skies and a mild wind. The dunes look like those you woudl find on Earth, but the greenish sky, caused by atmospherics so close to the pole add an off hue and an almost eerie feel to the environs. (Jaron, Land Nav, John, you as well, if you please)
[09:36:10] Lt. Fallnya attempts to link all targeting computers with hers
[09:36:21] 2Lt. Madresa laughs at Jaron's response.
[09:36:40] Lt. Fallnya: RSI [1d100] => [92] = (92) vs 63%
[09:36:51] Lt. Fallnya: (wow i can tell this is gonna be a bad day…)
[09:36:51] 2Lt. Madresa: (( lol ))
[09:36:58] 2Lt. Madresa: (( j00 sux ))
[09:37:00] GM: Jaron and John only
[09:37:04] Lt. Jaron: [1d100] => [71] = (71) vs 64%
[09:37:51] 2Lt. Madresa: (( lol ))
[09:37:57] 2 Lt. Komillia: ((this is gonna be a bad dice day…))
[09:38:13] GM: Need a roll from El Johnny
[09:38:16] Lt. Jaron: (maybe)
[09:38:19] LT. Magna: [1d100] => [95] = (95)
[09:38:33] GM: [1d6*10] => 40
[09:39:03] GM: You drive out into the desert to where you think you should be, but there is no sign of any wreckage.
[09:39:38] CWO Amdahl flies along overhead, coming onto the radio. "Er… I don't think this is the right spot, somehow…"
[09:39:38] Lt. Jaron checks the console map again and rethinks the trajectory again
[09:39:55] Lt. Jaron radios "Well do you see anything from up there?"
[09:40:05] Lt. Jaron: "Cause it all lots the same down here"
[09:40:10] GM: Sarah, roll a perc love
[09:40:20] CWO Amdahl: [1d20+5] => [19,5] = (24)
[09:40:32] GM: You pick up no PC traces in this area,
[09:40:49] GM: there is a very faint very faint trace some 40 miles away
[09:41:26] CWO Amdahl blinks a little bit. "I think I can sense something 40 miles from here, it's not visible yet, but it has enough active protoculture signature to be seen at range. Maybe that's it."
[09:41:31] Lt. Fallnya switches both planes to guardian for hover form staying high enough to not throw dust on every one
[09:41:59] LT. Magna couldn't get Bria off his mind, her face just before he hit the guard and then dove out of the truck. She was afraid. He thought he would be able to save her. But things didn't work out that way. Now she was far from here probably, forced into a life of servitude. He didn't want to think of that though. He couldn't get Bria off his mind. Those last moments when they were shackled in the hover truck. All he could see was her as frustrated. All this time spent down here when he could be looking for her. He could hardly wait for this mission to be over, the war to be over. Then Gervase would get what was coming for him. A slow painful beating, followed by imprisonment. But first he needed a plan….
[09:43:21] Lt. Jaron radios "Roger that Hitman 3." and turns towards that direction
[09:44:00] CWO Amdahl vectors for the direction of the trace, to lead the ground group on to it.
[09:44:26] Lt. Fallnya keeps it slow and steady so we don't leave them behind while she keeps her eyes out
[09:44:59] GM: The Aerial assets arrive on station first of course, (roll percs and state actions)
[09:45:03] Lt. Jaron drives along "Madresa, you ok back there?"
[09:45:11] 2nd Lt. Alleria looks occasionally then peers to the controls and back up to her screens again muttering about desert
[09:45:18] 2Lt. Madresa looks forward. "I'm fine…"
[09:45:30] 2nd Lt. Alleria: (isn't the turret the passenger seat on the backs?)
[09:45:33] GM: Madresa: I'm fine, you can crash if you want, I have my own airbags!
[09:45:40] 2Lt. Madresa: (( thought so ))
[09:45:46] 2Lt. Madresa: (( *SMACKS the GM* ))
[09:45:47] 2Lt. Madresa: (( bad ))
[09:45:52] GM: Passenger seat
[09:45:54] 2nd Lt. Alleria: [1d20+1] => [9,1] = (10)
[09:46:01] Lt. Fallnya: [1d20] => [16] = (16)
[09:46:02] GM: you are ina set up like an A-6
[09:46:55] GM: Lurana, you can see bits of dark, shadows on the ground,
[09:47:07] GM: Sarah?
[09:47:09] GM: Perc?
[09:47:42] Lt. Fallnya drops lower to take a closer look speeding up a head of the pack a bit
[09:47:46] GM: No, air units only
[09:47:54] GM: bad airbags! bad
[09:48:00] CWO Amdahl: [1d20+1] => [6,1] = (7)
[09:48:04] CWO Amdahl: (( LOL ))
[09:48:07] CWO Amdahl: (( wow, that helps ))
[09:48:15] GM: Oblivious Invid is Oblivious
[09:48:17] CWO Amdahl: (( or 11 if a PC detect ))
[09:49:02] Lt. Fallnya: "Dark splotches taking a closer look" *throttles it to full
[09:49:20] GM: You can sense some PC, you figure it would be more distinct, based off what you felt earlier, but, you don't know, but you are certainly in the right area
[09:50:37] CWO Amdahl frowns a little bit. "We're at least close to it, it's a little fuzzy of a sig right at the moment." She stays with the vehicles, slowing basically to a near hover and closing her eyes for a moment, holding the stick solid, as she tries to sense it better.
[09:51:07] LT. Magna: bk
[09:51:32] GM: Lurana what do you do exactly.
[09:52:04] Lt. Fallnya throttles up and lowers altitude to get a closer look at the shadows rolling onto her side as she passes them [1d20] => [17] = (17) (perc again)
[09:52:49] CWO Amdahl: ( [1d20+5] => [20,5] = (25) to search with eyes closed again, and only see the trace)
[09:53:21] 2nd Lt. Alleria never going this fast she closes her eyes and prays
[09:53:31] Lt. Jaron kicks up the speed a little as the fighters pull ahead
[09:54:05] GM: Lurana, you see that the shadows are caused by a chunk of wing sticking up out of the sand.
[09:54:42] 2nd Lt. Alleria: "Well thats not the pod…" *throttles back and returns to the flight*
[09:54:47] 2nd Lt. Alleria: (bah)
[09:54:54] Lt. Fallnya: "Well thats not the pod…" *throttles back and returns to the flight*
[09:55:06] GM: Sarah, you feel it, yes, the PC trace is below you, you realize that the larger trace you felt earlier was the seeped PC in the sand having been blown into the air. You also feel, in the far distance, far to the east, a faint race, maybe some 200 miles yonder.
[09:56:13] CWO Amdahl blinks a little at that. "The heck… I think the trace below is just something that seeped into the sand and blown around. There''s another faint trace, but it's off east, and a LONG ways away…"
[09:57:29] Lt. Fallnya: "Guess he pod prolly blew up when it hit the ground. How unfortunate…"
[09:58:31] CWO Amdahl: Maybe. The other trace is 200 miles east, or thereabouts. No guess on what it is. All the enemy equipment is shadowed though, so I wouldn't see that.
[09:59:41] Lt. Fallnya: "Think it could be one of the other FoB's then
[10:01:01] Lt. Fallnya checks with command to see if we have any other units out beyond the FOB's
[10:01:23] Lt. Jaron drives up close to the wing for a closer look
[10:01:45] Lt. Mitchell: Negative, noting that far out, well,nothing that we've been told of, I hear that Point R might be sending out Recce flight, but, nothing on the roster.
[10:01:45] CWO Amdahl hmms a little. "Maybe. We should check the map of the FoB's to make sure though, I can't do that flying alone."
[10:02:33] Lt. Fallnya: "Just did with command"
[10:03:02] GM: Sarah, whatever it was you picked up out there, not only was it far, but it is deep.
[10:03:04] Lt. Fallnya: "If we did check it out we would be moving into a trap, or upon Recce Flight"
[10:03:29] GM: RSI Sarah, and Lu, and everyone
[10:03:31] Lt. Jaron gets out and pushes the wing, hoping to push it over.
[10:03:37] CWO Amdahl: [1d100] => [52] = (52)
[10:03:55] LT. Magna: [1d100] => [78] = (78)
[10:03:57] GM: Jaron, the wing gives resistance…as if there is something attacked to it under the sand
[10:03:57] Lt. Fallnya: [1d100] => [26] = (26) vs 63%
[10:03:59] CWO Amdahl: (( outta 60% ))
[10:04:05] 2Lt. Madresa: [1d100] => [49] = (49)
[10:04:19] 2Lt. Madresa: (( outta 58 for me ))
[10:04:19] 2 Lt. Komillia: [1d100] => [41] = (41) vs 55
[10:04:22] Lt. Jaron radios "This might be it, its anchored in"
[10:04:35] GM: Lu, you realize that, if Sarah is right…then that feeling she has, puts that trace 150 miles into the 'Badlands'
[10:04:46] 2nd Lt. Alleria: [1d100] => [97] = (97) vs 50%
[10:04:46] 2 Lt. Gamjin: [1d100] => [95] = (95) vs 50
[10:05:12] GM: An area of the Northern Wastes that not even the local Nomads venture into (Nomads = Bedouins)
[10:05:19] CWO Amdahl glances up, after re-zeroing the trace. "The trace is deep, as well as far. It's underground a significant distance. Not sure what would be buried that deep in."
[10:05:32] CWO Amdahl: (( *strikes her alt's comment from the log* ))
[10:06:30] 2nd Lt. Alleria: "Me either, and if were that far away and the FOBs get hit while were off exploring we would be derlict of duity
[10:06:35] 2nd Lt. Alleria: (bah)
[10:06:41] Lt. Fallnya: "Me either, and if were that far away and the FOBs get hit while were off exploring we would be derelict of duty
[10:07:16] Narrator: Meanwhile, at a roadblock to Point R Suki, is in a Deuce and a half driven by LCpl Summerwind. The duo stops. Inside the cab Suki is in her CVR, as is her driver, a stout Tirolian of mixed heritage, rap music is playing loudly, much to Suki’s chagrin, she ponders turning it off, but, as annoying as it is, the music did help pass the time, even if the lyrics were laced with foul language. As the MP walks over to check their ID the riff of “Fuck tha police!…” blares over the radio as Summerwind hands over her ID. “Come on Ciprico, wave us the fuck on!” Suki facepalms, and can’t help but laugh a little and the situation, and the context.
[10:07:32] Lt. Fallnya looks down to Jaron "Want me to try lifting the wing with my Legios or you can with the back to try and lift it?
[10:07:59] CWO Amdahl: Roger that. I'll note approximate location on the map, in case anyone wants it investigated later.
[10:08:37] Lt. Jaron gets back into the Silverback and goes into battloid mode. He then tries to pull and push the wing free. Radios "Stand by and see"
[10:09:44] GM: The wing takes some 'elbow grease' but as you push down a shattered section of Wraith hull moves to the surface.
[10:10:25] Lt. Fallnya: "Looks like some one found some Salvage"
[10:10:42] 2 Lt. Gamjin is sightly keeping watch for any incoming bandits.
[10:10:49] That's the Tab key, Dave
[10:10:54] Lt. Jaron replies "Roger that"
[10:11:13] CWO Amdahl keeps watch for incoming bandits as well, watching her radar, and watching the sky quietly.
[10:12:09] GM: At this distance, the Wraith is a lot bigger then you thought, some 54 feet, the warbooks calling it 34 were wrong!
[10:12:25] Lt. Jaron radios "Heavy grounders, care to move in close" he tries to push it up more
[10:14:05] LT. Magna: "Roger that 4-1…moving in" John relays. He moves closer to the wreckage.
[10:14:57] 2 Lt. Komillia: "Need some actual muscle flyboy?"
[10:15:04] GM: At this point the Wraith wreckage wont move any more, maybe the larger Bioroids can budge it…
[10:15:25] Lt. Jaron replies "Yes, its all yours"
[10:15:29] GM: Percs those on the GROUND and near the Wreckage
[10:15:37] Lt. Jaron: [1d20+2] => [3,2] = (5)
[10:15:37] LT. Magna: [1d20] => [9] = (9)
[10:15:44] Lt. Jaron: (well crud)
[10:15:48] GM: Squirrels!!! Tons of em!
[10:15:55] LT. Magna: same here
[10:16:15] 2Lt. Madresa: [1d20] => [19] = (19).
[10:17:11] GM: You notice markings, in alien script,
[10:17:22] GM: Indecipherable, but still, noteworthy
[10:18:09] Lt. Jaron watches and wishes he had some sort of camera
[10:18:37] LT. Magna: (Your mech can record things ya know.)
[10:18:51] 2Lt. Madresa blinks and looks a little at the script. "Mind if I get out for a second?" She ponders a little. "There's writing of some kind on the wing, we should at least record it. With enough bits of language, maybe it could be translated somehow. That could be useful if we eve have to infiltrate ships or such."
[10:19:22] Lt. Jaron nods to Madresa (I thought only special mechs could)
[10:19:26] GM: Komillia , John and Gamjin, you arrive on station, and see the Silverback near the wreckage, it is indeed a large craft, Komillia, you shiver, last remembering these foul craft strafing you in Anver'sa
[10:19:36] Lt. Fallnya just remains in hover high enough over the others "Sarah send me those close coordinates ill check see if command wants to send a probe over or recon flight"
[10:20:03] Shade: [1d100] => [87] = (87)
[10:20:04] Shade: [1d100] => [83] = (83)
[10:20:17] Shade: [1d20] => [8] = (8)
[10:20:17] Shade: [1d20] => [12] = (12)
[10:20:24] LT. Magna: "Alright..where do you need the muscle?' John says over comm.
[10:20:28] GM: Lu and Alleria roll percs
[10:20:32] GM: Sarah you too
[10:20:38] Lt. Fallnya: [1d20] => [6] = (6)
[10:20:45] 2nd Lt. Alleria: [1d20+1] => [5,1] = (6)
[10:20:56] CWO Amdahl sends the coordinates over to Lurana, nodding quickly. "Yes, ma'am."
[10:21:32] 2nd Lt. Alleria: (lol i thought we were all together at least close enough GM)
[10:21:33] Lt. Jaron runs sensors in case the wraith lights or something (sensory [1d100] => [44] = (44) vs 60)
[10:22:10] 2nd Lt. Alleria: (*pokes Sarah for her roll*)
[10:22:19] 2nd Lt. Alleria: (*as Sarah)
[10:22:25] GM: Sarah perc please, Jaron, you scan the Wraith, it is most certainly dormant.
[10:22:32] CWO Amdahl: [1d20+1] => [20,1] = (21)
[10:23:27] GM: Sarah (jeezus) you make your transmission and then as you scan the horizon, notice two dark shapes as they duck behind some dunes some 25 miles away.
[10:24:04] CWO Amdahl swears loudly into her radio, switching to allcall. "Inbound contacts, just ducked behind the dunes 25 miles out!"
[10:24:15] CWO Amdahl: (( well, allcall to the group here ))
[10:25:14] Lt. Fallnya slides in hover mode turning towards dunes indicated looking around "Which way?"
[10:25:38] Lt. Jaron comments to Madresa "Might wanna get your cyclone now"
[10:25:49] Lt. Fallnya: (Shes on turret…)
[10:25:59] CWO Amdahl marks rough location on the map if possible.
[10:26:01] GM: Who's on second?
[10:26:04] Lt. Fallnya: (*unless you two want to abandon the back which works good for a good pair?)
[10:26:06] CWO Amdahl: (( the turret can be run by the pilot though. ))
[10:26:10] CWO Amdahl: (( I thought ))
[10:26:37] Lt. Fallnya: (only if he doesn't plan on moving the back lol)
[10:27:25] Lt. Jaron: (Madresa hopped out to check the writing)
[10:27:41] CWO Amdahl: (( actually she just asked if she could hop out to check, she never did. ))
[10:28:12] Lt. Jaron: (oh well, I nodded that she could)
[10:28:34] Lt. Fallnya maneuvers so she lifts up higher angling down trying to see behind the dunes
[10:28:56] 2Lt. Madresa unstraps her Cyclone and hurries to unfold it, jumping on it the moment she gets it unfolded and switching power on and mode transform to get it set.
[10:29:26] 2nd Lt. Alleria grumbles at the sudden change in direction from standing still to V-tol up thrust definitely not liking the chopper like movement
[10:29:53] CWO Amdahl keeps watching for the contacts to pop back up.
[10:30:41] Shade: [1d20] => [7] = (7)
[10:30:43] Shade: [1d20] => [16] = (16)
[10:30:44] Shade: [1d100] => [7] = (7)
[10:30:45] Shade: [1d100] => [86] = (86)
[10:31:23] Lt. Fallnya: [1d20] => [12] = (12) (perc)
[10:31:32] CWO Amdahl: [1d20+1] => [6,1] = (7)
[10:31:45] CWO Amdahl: (( wow, sucky perc roll after the wonder roll ))
[10:31:58] 2nd Lt. Alleria: [1d20+1] => [1,1] = (2) (perc trying to see what the lt is looking for
[10:32:15] 2nd Lt. Alleria: (no worse than mine)
[10:32:24] GM: You begin to wonder if it was a mirage you saw, since, now, eyes peeled, you can see nothing
[10:32:28] CWO Amdahl: (( ooh,buttons to push! ))
[10:32:52] LT. Magna: (Big red ones)
[10:33:04] GM: Red candy-like buttons
[10:33:22] LT. Magna: (Giggity)
[10:33:46] Lt. Fallnya: "Don't see them."
[10:34:11] Lt. Jaron moves around the cockpit of the wraith, checking it out
[10:34:15] CWO Amdahl grumbles a little and keeps watching. "I saw them, I /know/ I saw them…" She keeps looking for them, frowning.
[10:34:38] GM: Jaron what are you doing?
[10:36:18] Lt. Fallnya: "Ground Pounders, Check out behind those dunes, we will cover the 2 wayward and the backer
[10:36:19] Lt. Jaron: (Just trying to look inside the cockpit area)
[10:36:56] Lt. Fallnya: (i think he said it was a wing section and side of body nothing about cockpit
[10:37:23] LT. Magna: "Roger." John moves his mech at a run toward the dunes.
[10:37:27] GM: Jaron, you look into where yo think a cockpit would be, and, there is a cavity with what looks to be plugs adapters, but, nothing that looks like a cockpit
[10:38:27] 2 Lt. Komillia: Roger
[10:38:34] GM: Komillia, Gamjin?
[10:38:36] GM: ?
[10:39:11] Lt. Jaron radios "Looks like the cockpit is ejectable, so pilot or whatever is gone"
[10:39:30] LT. Magna: RSE
[10:39:34] LT. Magna: [1d100] => [86] = (86)
[10:39:35] GM: yesh
[10:39:35] 2 Lt. Gamjin moves out to the dunes keeping his rifle leveled upon them muttering only an acknowledgement out of military procedure.
[10:39:49] LT. Magna: (Damn!)
[10:40:18] 2 Lt. Komillia uses the limited flight abilities of the Bioroid Interceptor to get an aerial view.
[10:41:06] GM: Komillia perc
[10:41:30] 2 Lt. Komillia: [1d20] => [17] = (17)
[10:41:48] GM: You see something, looks like a puff of dust.
[10:41:57] GM: odd, since the winds are still right now
[10:42:52] 2 Lt. Komillia: There's movement down there, can't see what's causing it though.
[10:43:02] LT. Magna: (Puff the magic dust cloud, lived in the desert…)
[10:43:12] GM: John you are closing in on the dune, how fast are you going?
[10:43:21] GM: remember it's 25 miles out
[10:43:54] CWO Amdahl: (( eek ))
[10:44:08] LT. Magna: Running
[10:44:11] GM: so at full tilt running would take you 30 min
[10:44:42] GM: and full jets, 12 min
[10:44:53] LT. Magna: He will do long thruster leaps.
[10:45:36] GM: and the rest of you?
[10:45:56] CWO Amdahl tries to check her own instruments as well.
[10:46:01] Lt. Jaron checks the plugs and adapters to see if they resemble UEEF or others mechanics
[10:46:07] CWO Amdahl: [1d100] => [24] = (24)
[10:46:39] GM: The plug adapters are recognizable, but not compatible with UEEF standard, looks like some sort of HDMI or USD ports
[10:46:43] 2 Lt. Komillia is flying at at least 300 mph.
[10:46:49] GM: USB
[10:47:05] GM: Komillia you pass Jaron as you barrel towards the dune
[10:47:13] 2 Lt. Gamjin is running at 60 mph
[10:47:19] LT. Magna: [1d100] => [86] = (86)
[10:47:20] LT. Magna: [1d100] => [42] = (42)
[10:47:22] LT. Magna: [1d100] => [19] = (19)
[10:47:23] LT. Magna: [1d100] => [11] = (11)
[10:47:31] GM: Sarah, you can pick up some movement beyond the dune
[10:48:10] Lt. Fallnya just stays in position looking making sure none pop up and try to flank
[10:49:02] GM: Some time passes as you maneuver yourselves, Komillia, roll a perc
[10:49:18] 2 Lt. Komillia: [1d20] => [10] = (10)
[10:50:30] GM: As you crest the dune. You see a Haydonite Shade, guns at the ready, aimed right at you!
[10:50:43] Shade: [1d20+5] => [10,5] = (15)
[10:50:44] Lt. Jaron moves around the the side with Madresa
[10:50:52] Shade: DIE ADDICT!
[10:51:00] GM: It fires!
[10:51:49] 2 Lt. Komillia fires with her shoulder cannons simultaneously (if not surprised enough to prevent.)
[10:52:00] GM: roll it
[10:52:17] GM: [2d6*10+30] => 140
[10:53:09] 2 Lt. Komillia: [1d20+9] => [10,9] = (19) for strike and [2d6*10] => 30 for damage
[10:53:36] GM: You both hit each other, the Shade hitting you for 140. Init
[10:53:38] GM: Init all
[10:53:57] Lt. Fallnya: (including my self and Sarah and Alleria?
[10:54:05] 2 Lt. Komillia: [1d20+3] => [17,3] = (20)
[10:54:10] Shade: (Shade on Komillia [1d20+4] => [14,4] = (18) Init)
[10:54:11] Lt. Fallnya: (or are we to far back to engage with any thing except missiles?)
[10:54:25] Lt. Jaron: Initiative [1d20] => [9] = (9)
[10:54:31] 2 Lt. Gamjin: [1d20] => [2] = (2)
[10:54:40] LT. Magna: [1d20] => [1] = (1)
[10:54:42] GM: You are far enough back that you have to move to engage, wont take but a few attacks at full burner
[10:55:16] Shade: [1d20+4] => [2,4] = (6)
[10:55:32] GM: Komillia! Your first
[10:55:43] Lt. Fallnya: (shouldn't take that long for 2 Legios maybe 1 lol)
[10:56:07] 2 Lt. Komillia fires her gunpod at the things head.
[10:56:14] 2 Lt. Komillia: [1d20+4] => [12,4] = (16)
[10:56:46] 2 Lt. Komillia: ((-5 called shot already factored.))
[10:57:00] Shade: [1d20+6] => [5,6] = (11)
[10:57:18] GM: The Shade tries to duck under but fails! Roll damage
[10:57:23] 2 Lt. Komillia: [1d6*10+8] => 38
[10:57:57] CWO Amdahl sees the battle, and starts moving to speed, to engage. "Well well…"
[10:58:00] GM: The shade takes the hit and shakes it off and returns fire
[10:58:04] Lt. Fallnya: [1d20+6] => [5,6] = (11) any additional from Legios
[10:58:08] GM: [1d20+4] => [4,4] = (8)
[10:58:17] GM: Missing as it starts to circle you
[10:58:49] 2nd Lt. Alleria: [1d20+1] => [12,1] = (13) plus any additional from Legios
[10:59:22] GM: um, y'all have to wait an attack
[10:59:40] 2nd Lt. Alleria: (i know but thats to decide where we will be in the line)
[10:59:41] GM: it's Komillia's turn again since she and the Shade are the only ones in play right now
[11:00:20] 2 Lt. Komillia tries to finish taking this thing's head off.
[11:00:25] 2 Lt. Komillia: [1d20+4] => [13,4] = (17)
[11:00:37] GM: [1d20+6] => [1,6] = (7)
[11:00:48] 2 Lt. Komillia: [1d6*10+8] => 18
[11:00:59] GM: Roll damage, the Shade bounds off the sand dune as it tries to duck further, and just…can't
[11:01:05] 2 Lt. Komillia: ((my damage rolls are sucking.))
[11:01:17] Shade: [1d20+4] => [12,4] = (16)
[11:01:32] GM: The Shade returns fire
[11:01:50] 2 Lt. Komillia attempts to dodge.
[11:02:00] 2 Lt. Komillia: [1d20+10] => [10,10] = (20)
[11:02:23] GM: You nimbly step out of harms way as the incoming rounds kick up dust and grit nearby
[11:03:13] 2 Lt. Komillia: ((me again?))
[11:03:59] GM: Alleria! The Shade has just passed into missile range as the Legios engines thrum behind you (Sarah I never got a Init form you, if you rolled post the value again please)
[11:04:23] CWO Amdahl: [1d20+1] => [8,1] = (9)
[11:04:30] CWO Amdahl: (( my inits suck ))
[11:08:02] GM: roll a perc
[11:08:05] GM: please
[11:08:07] GM: Jaron
[11:08:44] Lt. Jaron: [1d20+2] => [20,2] = (22)
[11:09:11] 2Lt. Madresa: (( woo! ))
[11:09:22] GM: As you what it is you do, not sure here, you can see, plainly, a second target, looks to be a shade, sidling up the dune and it is barreling down on you. You have been flanked!
[11:09:23] 2nd Lt. Alleria seeing only one enemy she decides not to waist missiles
[11:09:53] GM: Declare your action Alleria
[11:09:54] Lt. Jaron radios "They are traveling through the sane dunes, they are flanking this position"
[11:10:07] 2nd Lt. Alleria: (which ones are in range?)
[11:10:26] GM: Both really, but you can only 'see' the one on Komillia
[11:10:43] 2nd Lt. Alleria looks around only seeing one [1d20+1] => [18,1] = (19)
[11:10:47] Lt. Jaron fires a bursts from the rail gun at the shade (to strike [1d20+2] => [20,2] = (22))
[11:10:53] GM: However, if your pilot keeps on this speed you will lose range on the flanking Shade in one attack
[11:11:03] 2Lt. Madresa glances over around after Jaron, swearing. "dammit…" She looks over to Jaron. "Think we can get em?"
[11:12:01] 2nd Lt. Alleria: "Lt. Flanker!" *she calls out and tries to quickly launch and fire a pair of missiles at the one behind and near the back
[11:12:06] 2nd Lt. Alleria: [1d20+3] => [2,3] = (5)
[11:12:27] GM: Your missiles, fired so fast launch without any lock and impact the dunes below
[11:12:37] Shade: [1d20+4] => [5,4] = (9)
[11:12:51] GM: Jaron, your strike hit dead center roll damage
[11:13:53] Lt. Jaron: (hrg 140….so how much as hrg 70 does 2d4x10)
[11:15:41] GM: [1d100] => [55] = (55)
[11:16:03] GM: The Shade breaks off and makes to run, Sarah your go
[11:17:26] CWO Amdahl moves around to see if she can find the flanker, herself. She hurries down for where it is, and tries to lock missiles on its position.
[11:19:44] Lt. Jaron: [(4d4*10)*2] => 240
[11:19:53] GM: It does NOT live!
[11:19:59] CWO Amdahl: (( wow! ))
[11:20:09] GM: The Shade is shredded by the rail gun fire!
[11:20:12] CWO Amdahl oohs. "Nice shooting!"
[11:20:31] Lt. Jaron radios "Yea but it was like this last time we was out"
[11:21:04] GM: John one more attack and you will be in range to fire.
[11:21:07] GM: attack
[11:21:15] GM: Komillia, your shot
[11:23:29] 2 Lt. Komillia continues the pressure on the head of the Shade.
[11:23:36] GM: like in the illio, circling you
[11:23:37] 2 Lt. Komillia: [1d20+4] => [10,4] = (14)
[11:23:45] GM: [1d20+6] => [19,6] = (25)
[11:24:07] 2 Lt. Komillia: Damn!
[11:24:10] GM: The shade lift, this time, over your fire,and, hunkers in it's limbs and starts to jet away
[11:24:16] GM: Alleria, your shot
[11:25:01] 2nd Lt. Alleria: (what about lu?)
[11:25:18] GM: good point, lu, then Alleria, push button make missile go now!
[11:25:35] 2nd Lt. Alleria: (whats left and how close is it to any body
[11:25:53] GM: it's almost on top of Kommie, and in range
[11:25:57] GM: only one
[11:26:24] Lt. Fallnya does a quick scan if its in range for guns she fires them instead rather than blowing Kommie up a lil
[11:27:18] GM: the Shade starts to fly away
[11:27:21] GM: Komillia
[11:27:46] 2 Lt. Komillia fires at its flight thrusters with the dual cannons.
[11:27:51] GM: roll
[11:28:06] 2 Lt. Komillia: ((is it large enough to get the +2 bonus?))
[11:28:23] GM: not really
[11:28:30] 2 Lt. Komillia: [1d20+4] => [16,4] = (20)
[11:28:34] Shade: [1d20+6] => [3,6] = (9)
[11:28:43] GM: damage
[11:28:45] 2 Lt. Komillia: [2d6*10] => 60
[11:29:39] GM: The Shade rocks but remains airborne, the shade continues to try and escape, Alleria, you note that the range between Kommie and the Shade has widened to a safe margin, your shot
[11:31:15] GM: Jess?
[11:31:28] 2nd Lt. Alleria: (Range?)
[11:31:33] GM: safe
[11:31:47] Lt. Fallnya: (guns or still missiles only?)
[11:31:51] GM: missiles
[11:32:11] Lt. Fallnya lobs a single missile trying to blow off his engines and prolly half his backside
[11:32:17] Lt. Fallnya: [1d20+3] => [16,3] = (19)
[11:33:00] Shade: [1d20+5] => [15,5] = (20)
[11:33:06] Shade: [1d100] => [22] = (22)
[11:33:32] GM: The top turret jobbie on the Shade pops up and fires on the incoming volley, detonating it
[11:33:47] GM: Alleria, at this time guns and missiles are in range
[11:34:36] 2nd Lt. Alleria given position fires her side cannons trying to hit his engines after borrowing them from Lurana temporarily
[11:35:37] GM: roll strike
[11:35:43] 2nd Lt. Alleria: [1d20+2] => [3,2] = (5) (weapon system + beta)
[11:35:46] GM: -4 for the called shot
[11:35:52] GM: You wiff!!!
[11:36:11] CWO Amdahl: (( lolol ))
[11:36:14] GM: John! Your systems tell you that the Shade is in range for some missiley goodness
[11:38:15] LT. Magna: John lines up a max volley of missiles.
[11:38:31] GM: Place your bets!
[11:38:35] LT. Magna: [1d20+3] => [11,3] = (14)
[11:38:42] GM: [1d20+5] => [2,5] = (7)
[11:39:24] GM: The Shade tries to blow the volley out of the air, but the missiles coming in from ground level foul the shot and the point defense gun cannot connect. Roll damage
[11:40:06] LT. Magna: Six missiles max?
[11:40:11] GM: yesh
[11:41:23] LT. Magna: [1d6*10] => 30
[11:41:23] LT. Magna: [1d6*10] => 10
[11:41:24] LT. Magna: [1d6*10] => 50
[11:41:24] LT. Magna: [1d6*10] => 20
[11:41:25] LT. Magna: [1d6*10] => 60
[11:41:25] LT. Magna: [1d6*10] => 30
[11:41:36] GM: ah buh? O.o
[11:41:36] 2nd Lt. Alleria: (eew the hard way lol)
[11:41:46] GM: make me add and shit….bastard
[11:41:53] LT. Magna: hehe
[11:42:18] 2nd Lt. Alleria: (170 by the looks)
[11:42:27] GM: HA! it's still alive! thats what you get! addition boy
[11:42:31] CWO Amdahl: (( *rotfls at Chris* ))
[11:42:46] CWO Amdahl: (( making you add and shit indeed ))
[11:43:08] GM: Komillia, it is in range of your….GASP! Bioroids missiles, but not in range of it's guns…what do you do…What DO you do!?
[11:43:24] CWO Amdahl: (( actually I think it's 200 ))
[11:43:28] Lt. Jaron: (take a dump?)
[11:43:34] GM: it is, and the bastid has 235
[11:43:40] 2 Lt. Komillia grumbles and fires 1 up its tail pipe.
[11:43:42] CWO Amdahl: (( lol ))
[11:43:50] GM: one!
[11:43:56] 2 Lt. Komillia: [1d20-1] => [9,-1] = (8)
[11:44:04] GM: I am gonna laugh my ass off you roll anything but a 4
[11:44:12] GM: roll damage
[11:44:13] 2 Lt. Komillia: ((if that hits I'm shocked.))
[11:44:30] 2 Lt. Komillia: [2d6x10] => 2d6x10
[11:44:30] GM: guy uses his last attack trying to shoot down Johns volley
[11:44:34] 2 Lt. Komillia: [2d6*10] => 120
[11:44:51] GM: double sixes! We have a winnah!!!!
[11:44:55] 2 Lt. Komillia: ((MAX DAMAGE!!!!))
[11:45:35] Lt. Fallnya: "Well there goes any chance of a captured Haydonite pilot, oh well
[11:45:43] Lt. Fallnya: "Return to base good shooting all who got to try"
[11:45:47] LT. Magna: RPC?
[11:45:54] 2 Lt. Komillia: (That was a called shot to the engines.)
[11:46:05] 2 Lt. Komillia: ((hence the -1))
[11:46:22] GM: You single missile steaks out of the launcher as Komillia curses the fact she had to use it, in slow mo the missile angles in like a Sidewinder, and hits the Shade dead center, there is a small detonation, and the Shade rolls over, followed by a large and firey BOOM! and the mecha detonates!
[11:46:24] LT. Magna: Reinforced pilots compartment.
[11:46:51] CWO Amdahl: (( unless the bigger boom was a self destruct ))
[11:47:05] Lt. Fallnya: "I doubt it survived the detonation"
[11:47:21] Lt. Fallnya: (besides if a mech drops below into the negatives about a 100 it goes boom)
[11:47:23] Lt. Jaron radios "So who is going to carry the wraith back?"
[11:47:41] Lt. Fallnya: "You are, unless you think it will fit int he betas belly?"
[11:47:47] 2 Lt. Komillia: That made no sense. Unless the engines are really sensitive to damage.
[11:48:17] Narrator: Meanwhile at Point R Suki and her driver are enjoying a well prepared lunch at a bistro at Point R's commercial district as the truck they brought is loaded for them.
[11:48:21] LT. Magna: (It's like the movies)
[11:48:23] Lt. Jaron: "I doubt a silver can handle the weight"
[11:48:56] LT. Magna: "I'll take it"
[11:49:09] 2 Lt. Gamjin: The battloids could probably handle it.
[11:49:38] Lt. Jaron: "Thanks Hitman 2"
[11:49:53] GM: As you load up the massive Wraith, and strap down the last tie down your radio pops to life, it's command.
[11:50:07] Lt. Mitchell: Hitman team, come in.
[11:50:47] Lt. Mitchell: OOo hitman, hello?
[11:50:53] Lt. Mitchell: Hitman are you out there?
[11:50:58] Lt. Mitchell: Echo echo
[11:51:00] Lt. Jaron reples "Hitman here"
[11:51:21] Lt. Mitchell: How goes the fishing?
[11:51:58] Lt. Jaron: "Found it but cockpit either ejected or removed"
[11:52:10] Lt. Fallnya: "We took out 2 scouts, and some junk for analysis"
[11:52:14] Lt. Mitchell: Anything useful?
[11:52:38] Lt. Jaron: "Has some writing on it, we cant make heads or tails of it"
[11:53:32] Lt. Mitchell: Anyway…command has a tasker for you, about 5 minutes ago, they say, an Aegis Alpha went down in the badlands, about 150 klicks to your east. Since you are the closest, they want you to check it out, recover teh pilot and any crypto. How copy?
[11:54:03] Lt. Jaron lets Lurana reply
[11:54:16] GM: hehehe asshole lol
[11:54:19] Lt. Fallnya: "Are you sending all of us out to the badlands or just the fastest?"
[11:54:44] CWO Amdahl glances down . "That could have been the trace I saw earlier."
[11:54:55] Lt. Jaron: (she's the boss lady, let her handle the important stuff)
[11:55:14] Lt. Mitchell: Your call! They didn't say really, I figure they wanted it fast, but, the badlands are nasty, so, I well, your call, I'm staying out of this one.
[11:55:57] Lt. Fallnya: "Terrain analysis team? think you ground pounders can make the walk or slow flight?"
[11:56:04] CWO Amdahl frowns. "Or really maybe not. That trace was well underground…" She considers.
[11:56:30] Lt. Mitchell: Command didn't say anything about anything underground…
[11:57:31] Lt. Mitchell: What trace are you talking about?
[11:57:58] GM: awww snap…now you did it Sarah
[11:58:00] Lt. Fallnya: "Might as well tell him Sarah"
[11:58:02] GM: no = nw
[11:58:02] 2 Lt. Gamjin: We'd have to walk the Condor can't fly in atmosphere.
[11:58:03] GM: now
[11:59:17] Lt. Jaron: "Likewise, we'll have to drive the dunes and it will be slow"
[11:59:57] Lt. Fallnya: "Allright, noted ground team return to base. Get that wreck analyzed"
[12:01:36] Lt. Jaron: "Unless you break and carry us"
[12:01:59] Lt. Fallnya: (you allready got orders lol)
[12:02:10] GM: heeh might work…
[12:02:42] Lt. Fallnya: (true we could cable the silverback to the under side, but not the battloids lol)
[12:02:43] GM: I can think of at least one way you can all go…
[12:03:07] Lt. Fallnya: (backs cyclones, and hummers?)
[12:03:27] GM: yno yes and no
[12:03:43] CWO Amdahl: (( unless they'd all fit into the Beta cargo bays with Cycs folded up. ))
[12:03:46] GM: think outside ze box
[12:03:53] GM: Sarah on it
[12:04:13] Lt. Fallnya: (thats pritty rough lol)
[12:04:25] GM: so, your Marines, suck it up
[12:04:39] CWO Amdahl: (( lol ))
[12:04:44] GM: buncha pansies
[12:05:16] Lt. Fallnya: (can we call it here?)
[12:05:21] Lt. Fallnya: (i gota get up in 4 hours
[12:05:40] GM: soon 15 minutes cause damned if i dont get to this next part even if I have to make it a cliffhanger
[12:05:43] Lt. Jaron: "Alphas can cable the silver and everyone else pile into the betas and their cyclones in the other"
[12:05:52] GM: boom Jaron Idea go!
[12:06:14] GM: but seriously, if you have to go, do what you need to…
[12:06:16] Lt. Fallnya: (thats part of what i said)
[12:06:21] GM: nod
[12:06:38] Lt. Fallnya: (but that slows us down alot with a jeep/silverback hanging under the belly
[12:06:38] Lt. Jaron: "Cause with the piss poor luck we've had we need all the teamwork we can muster"
[12:06:58] GM: so whats the call?
[12:07:22] Lt. Fallnya: guess we go back and get a 2nd silverback so Sarah has to deal with it to!
[12:07:33] GM: that does it, I need to design a damn jeet pack for those slo ass Bioroids…
[12:08:17] Lt. Fallnya: and split the ground pounders up between the 2 beta bays
