Chapter 4 - Act II - Part 1


[07:22:57] Narrator: The team, now given new taskings decides to split up, the ground forces back to bse with their Wraith find in tow, the airborne contingent to the wastes to find a downed Aegis Alpha lost less then 15 minutes ago.
[07:23:55] GM: Game on
[07:24:02] CWO Amdahl sighs a little bit and switches her comm back on. "Sir? The trace I'm talking about was 200 klicks east, and well underground. At that distance, its almost certainly an active trace. The question becomes what it is, since it's well underground. It'd be within close range of the downed plane, depending on what it is, and how close the facilities of it reach to the surface, it could be related.
[07:24:10] CWO Amdahl: (( to Mitchell ))
[07:24:51] Lt. Mitchell: Thats all fine and well, but, a trace of what?
[07:25:48] CWO Amdahl sighs. "An active protoculture trace of some kind. I'm not /sure/ it's an enemy reading though, I'd think they'd shadow most things. Unless it's damaged."
[07:26:45] Lt. Jaron sits in the cargo hold listening to com chatter and hoping no one passes gas
[07:26:48] Lt. Mitchell: Proto…how the,
[07:27:33] Lt. Mitchell turns to the trooper nearest him in the TOC "Beta's don't have PC sensors do they?"
[07:27:56] UEEF trooper shakes his head and shrugs "I dunno."
[07:28:25] Lt. Mitchell: Right, very well, just be careful…
[07:29:39] CWO Amdahl: Yes, I'd say we intend to be. If it's visible that far away, it could mean it's something big. And if it's big, it's way too close, sir.
[07:30:17] GM: Anything anyone want to do before a minor fast forward?
[07:30:43] 2Lt. Madresa: (( unless I should pass gas, no. ))
[07:30:44] Lt. Jaron just prays for an uneventful trip (nope)
[07:32:42] 2Lt. Madresa looks around a little. "Confined places like this would be just perfect for six alarm chili pranks." She pulls in tight, trying not to take much space as the tall one.
[07:32:54] 2Lt. Madresa says it with a laugh though.
[07:33:15] Lt. Jaron smiles slightly
[07:36:00] Narrator: The ground team heads off first as the Air team loads up the cycs and silverback. The Bioroids have a hell of a time getting the wraith to move, the sand giving way beneath their feet but finally a rhythm is established and the Three Bioroids trudge forward with the Wraith dragging behind them. The airborne team loads up finally and makes off towards the badlands. The terrain turns from sandy to that of a rocky desert, crags, canyons, and furrows are the order of the day, winds are harsh and the heat has risen from a coll 105 to a sweltering 135, in the shade.
[07:38:01] Attempting to assign the role of PLAYER to (9) Jess…
[07:38:06] GM: Airborne team, make some percs, and which ever lucky sap that has the Silverback underslung, make a piloting roll at -15%
[07:38:27] CWO Amdahl: [1d20+1] => [13,1] = (14)
[07:42:56] GM: to late the silverback was brought along in a sling load, will the pilot of that lucky mecha make a piloting roll at -15%
[07:45:30] CWO Amdahl: [1d100+15] => [71,15] = (86)
[07:45:58] CWO Amdahl: (( outta 76%, not good ))
[07:46:07] GM: Umm, is there anyone actually IN the Silverback?
[07:46:17] CWO Amdahl: not to my knowledge.
[07:46:19] Lt. Jaron: (not I)
[07:46:26] GM: Smart call Jaron!
[07:46:29] CWO Amdahl: (( Jaron and Ay had the Silverback, and they're in the hold ))
[07:47:50] GM: Sarah, you struggle with the sling load but the erratic winds in the badlands whip the dangling load to and fro, you try to maintain control but your planes alarms start blaring 'TERRAIN PULL UP! TERRAIN PULL UP!" You have a choice to make…
[07:49:41] GM: The rest of you see Sarah's Beta floundering in the slipstream as it starts to fly sideways (it shouldn't be doing that)
[07:49:43] Lt. Fallnya: "Chief if you have to cut the cables I'm sure those 2 can piggy back using their Cyclones"
[07:50:41] CWO Amdahl swears very softly as she tries to pull the Beta back under control, listening to the order from the Lt. "If you think I should, ma'am… I hate to lose the back though, I'll mark the position if I drop it, maybe we can pick it back up on our way back."
[07:52:55] CWO Amdahl tries to lower her Beta to the deck, to drop off the Silverback for the moment. "Dropping it and marking position."
[07:53:28] GM: Sarah, roll a piloting roll twice (negatives are internal nyahahahah)
[07:53:37] CWO Amdahl: [1d100] => [7] = (7)
[07:53:39] CWO Amdahl: [1d100] => [51] = (51)
[07:53:49] Lt. Jaron radios "Take it easy Sarah, I might be able to talk you thru some"
[07:54:35] GM: Okay, Sarah, with that great first roll, you know from experience, fear, hell from watching TV, that if you don't lose that 'fucking jeep' you are going to turn your plane into a lawn dart
[07:54:35] Lt. Jaron: [1d100] => [42] = (42) vs 80
[07:58:55] Lt. Jaron radios "It can survive a decent drop Sarah:
[07:59:09] CWO Amdahl: [1d100] => [14] = (14)
[07:59:13] CWO Amdahl: (( piloting ))
[07:59:29] CWO Amdahl: (( since it's needed after last action, unless the 2nd roll was it ))
[07:59:30] GM: Sarah as you hesitate your pitch and yaw warnings start to blare and you feel the Beta start to sag under you as it begins to lose altitude at an unsafe rate.
[07:59:57] Lt. Alleria boredly unbuckles and goes below into the cargo
[08:01:45] GM: Jaron, and the pilot of the other Legios, make a piloting roll please
[08:01:53] CWO Amdahl drops the Silverback and marks location once she gets down far enough.
[08:02:11] Lt. Jaron: [1d100] => [5] = (5) vs 82
[08:02:13] Lt. Fallnya: [1d100] => [74] = (74)
[08:04:00] GM: With the weight shed the roll of a 51% is sufficient for Sarah to keep the Legios from impacting the deck! Jaron, your experience tells you to land your craft in these winds, Lurana, you try to stay airborne but the wind shear spins you and you find yourself in trouble.
[08:04:37] Lt. Fallnya: (i thought Jaron was in the bay?)
[08:04:53] Lt. Jaron: (in your cargo bay, watching the whole thing)
[08:05:14] GM: You know, I think you are right, Jaron, your roll then becomes sage advice to your pilot. 'Please land before we DIE!'
[08:05:17] Lt. Fallnya: (ooo kay didnt know you could "see" from the cargo bay it looks like it be a big box no windows)
[08:05:42] Lt. Jaron: (we got special ones )
[08:06:00] GM: He can feel the plane moving, and knows that 'yeah, this isn't good'
[08:07:12] Lt. Jaron radios "can we gain some altitude to avoid these winds?"
[08:07:55] Lt. Fallnya tries converting to Guardian trying to stabilize [1d100] => [7] = (7)
[08:08:00] GM: At any rate, Lurana make a piloting roll -10%
[08:08:05] GM: beautiful!
[08:08:27] Lt. Fallnya: (if possible both beta and alpha go to guardian
[08:10:25] GM: Lurana, you feel the winds whip your Legios about and your stomach lifts into your throat, no wonder they call this the 'Badlands!' you flick that almighty G toggle down and are able to arrest your decent and land the bird, harder then you would have liked to but still light enough to avoid damage.
[08:11:45] Lt. Fallnya: (who said landing?
[08:11:56] GM: I did
[08:15:29] Lt. Alleria tumbles down into the bay from the hard landing among the ground team
[08:15:37] Narrator: Back at FOB Bastogne Gamjin and Komillia and John finally drag that Wraith into the bases perimeter. As you drop the damnable thing you see two trucks, one with a trailer pull in, and make for the LZ/Motorpool bunker.
[08:16:35] CWO Amdahl moves her bird down, trying to land it gently if she can, in order to get it settled, trying to be careful with it. She doesn't want to lose an entire Legios after all…
[08:16:52] GM: Roll it Sarah -10%
[08:16:58] CWO Amdahl: [1d100] => [67] = (67)
[08:17:16] CWO Amdahl: (( marg ))
[08:17:26] CWO Amdahl: (( -10% makes it 77 out of 76 ))
[08:17:28] CWO Amdahl: (( rofl ))
[08:17:36] GM: You land but as you do so an errant gust lifts the left wing, throwing your mecha to the right in a heap.
[08:18:12] GM: You try to correct the fall bat after a series of awkward sidestep your Legios crumples.
[08:18:55] GM: Ground team…go
[08:19:12] GM: Your turn Mr. J
[08:19:13] Lt. Fallnya disconnects and changes to battloid and begins to move towards the Legios to upright it back to its top side.
[08:19:22] Lt. Jaron starts to exit the cargo hold
[08:19:43] CWO Amdahl sighs a little bit. "Shit…" She tries to check the damage, to see if any of it is salvageable, or if it's a complete wreck, and if she can disconnect the Beta and pull it into battloid and right the Alpha, she hopes.
[08:21:00] Lt. Fallnya: "Hold still Sarah I'm coming" *tries to gently move it back onto its legs (least i assume she was in guardian as well when she went to land?)
[08:22:16] 2 Lt. Gamjin is grumbling about the task of carrying the wraith.
[08:23:29] 2 Lt. Komillia: "Ya' know my music player would have come in handy right now. The OST for Gurrn Lagann would really perk up the old spirit.
[08:26:04] 2 Lt. Komillia: Gamjin go report in, you know these people better, I'm going to see what the trailer was.
[08:26:12] 2 Lt. Gamjin: Roger.
[08:26:51] 2 Lt. Gamjin proceeds to command and gives a brief on the capture of the Wraith
[08:27:21] GM: Lt Mitchell listens and has not much to add, he has a detail tasked to guard it, weapons hot, just in case.
[08:27:41] GM: Komillia, you approach in your Bioroid?
[08:27:49] 2 Lt. Komillia: ((yep))
[08:28:25] GM: The trucks stop and Suki slides out of the lead vehicle. She looks up at your mecha and waves hi.
[08:28:34] 2 Lt. Komillia doesn't even leave the bioroid and makes for the bunker as if that is where she is supposed to go.
[08:28:47] 2 Lt. Komillia waves back.
[08:29:00] 2 Lt. Komillia: How did it go Lt. Ishida.
[08:30:26] Lt. Ishida: It went decent. Can you have your brother park his Condor over there, you to, brought back something that might help you get around better.
[08:31:06] Lt. Ishida looks around and see the Wraith. "Oooo you found it!"
[08:31:49] 2 Lt. Komillia: Roger that.
[08:32:21] Lt. Ishida looks over her shoulder and calls out 'Summerwind!"
[08:32:34] 2 Lt. Komillia parks her Bioroid where Suki directed.
[08:32:53] LCpl Summerwind sighs and trundles over. "What?" She pauses, then adds. "ma'am?"
[08:33:26] Lt. Ishida: Komillia, meet our new 'Dog robber'.
[08:33:45] 2 Lt. Gamjin after meeting up with Komillia moves his Condor, after a threat involving "All 18 weapons."
[08:33:57] 2 Lt. Komillia: Nice to meet you.
[08:34:21] LCpl Summerwind mutters and kicks the sand. "Son of a…do one thing to help….oh, had a cushy deal, no stress, now I have to work, rat bastard officers."
[08:34:52] Lt. Ishida: She's…ornery.
[08:34:55] Lt. Ishida smiles
[08:36:34] 2 Lt. Komillia: Don't make such a fuss, conflict and unease spurs growth and makes one stronger.
[08:37:50] GM: Komillia, you park your mecha, and you watch as the trucks are off loaded and as Suki checks off the goodies as they come off the bed. 1 Alpha arm…green. 2 EU-15's, 4 UWW-7 MLOP pods, 2 MRM pylons, 1 GAU-15, 1 Beta MRM bay mod kit, and a pallet of khaki and dark brown paint.
[08:38:53] 2 Lt. Komillia: Desert camo?
[08:39:06] GM: last but not least to be offloaded are two booster packs, they look like they affix to a Beta, ((FAST pack))
[08:39:13] Lt. Ishida nods
[08:39:39] 2 Lt. Komillia: And Super Beta parts?
[08:39:50] Lt. Ishida points to the pods then to the curious ground crew and then orders them to be mounted to the Bioroid and Condor
[08:40:10] Lt. Ishida: Not sure about that, but, I figure they should make it easier for you to move around.
[08:41:16] 2 Lt. Komillia: Yeah, Gamjin's preferred mecha is definitely a Ground pounder.
[08:41:33] 2 Lt. Komillia: At least the Bioroids had some flight ability.
[08:42:02] Lt. Ishida walks over to the Wraith Mecha and starts taking pictures and generally poking around it. "So, where is everyone else?"
[08:43:06] 2 Lt. Komillia: They went to follow after some contact about 150 k from the position we picked up the Wraith at.
[08:43:50] Lt. Ishida pockets her digicam and blinks. "Well, we best get on out there."
[08:44:36] LCpl Summerwind perks up. "150km out past where?
[08:45:40] 2 Lt. Komillia: It should take a few minutes before the refit our Battloids, and I'd have to see if Gamjin kept the coordinates.
[08:46:05] 2 Lt. Komillia: We were near a dune sea, or something, sorry not terribly good with geography.
[08:46:37] LCpl Summerwind: I'll go with…no offense, but you 'Roid jockey's' are about as close to us grunts as you can get…damn prissy flyboys occifers, fuck em all."
[08:46:49] LCpl Summerwind smiles at Suki as she walks off and waves
[08:47:28] LCpl Summerwind walks with you to the TOC and to where Gamjin is.
[08:48:16] 2 Lt. Gamjin looks up at to see Summerwind walking with his sister and snorts a greeting.
[08:48:33] LCpl Summerwind: Sup Gammie, having the trots again?
[08:48:53] 2 Lt. Gamjin: I told you to not use that name.
[08:49:10] CWO Amdahl: (( lol ))
[08:49:11] LCpl Summerwind: Sorry, Bitch, I forgot..
[08:49:41] 2 Lt. Komillia: He's a permanent wet blanket, I'm still trying to figure out which demon he sold his sould to.
[08:49:55] 2 Lt. Gamjin snorts.
[08:50:16] LCpl Summerwind: Yeah, you snort there…piggy
[08:50:41] LCpl Summerwind looks like she is throughly enjoying herself
[08:50:42] 2 Lt. Gamjin: I hear boars are rather dangerous to be around.
[08:50:56] LCpl Summerwind: Make for good eating too.
[08:51:10] 2 Lt. Gamjin just seems liek his ususal disgruntled self.
[08:51:29] 2 Lt. Gamjin: Only if they don't gore you to death first.
[08:51:32] LCpl Summerwind: So, anyway, where did you say your prisses flew off to?
[08:52:25] 2 Lt. Gamjin points to the location on the map, "There. They got a couple betas so they should survive at least a few minutes."
[08:52:48] LCpl Summerwind: Ooo the badlands…fun stuff. Hope they stayed above the winds..
[08:52:52] LCpl Summerwind laughs
[08:53:01] LCpl Summerwind: nah, no one would be dumb enough to fly into them.
[08:53:39] 2 Lt. Gamjin: Considering they don't know the area, I doubt they would have thought of the winds. They are spacenoids after all.
[08:55:11] 2 Lt. Komillia dawns a serious, if mockish tone, "I find your lack of faith disturbing."
[08:55:12] LCpl Summerwind: Ahh, yeah, 'noids are odd folks, get this, while we were in the city, we caught some news update, seems the high command just appointed a new Ambassador plane, plaine, o penetntery, or something
[08:55:33] LCpl Summerwind: Some Maymay chick…
[08:55:47] 2 Lt. Gamjin: Minmei?
[08:55:56] LCpl Summerwind: Yeah thats the bitch!
[08:56:23] 2 Lt. Gamjin: Supposedly she confused the Zentraedi long enough for everyone to survive.
[08:56:34] LCpl Summerwind: Some singer or something, back on Earth.
[08:56:45] LCpl Summerwind: Never heard of her myself.
[08:56:53] 2 Lt. Komillia: More like she's proof power isn't the only key to victory. Even though she can't carry a tune in a bucket.
[08:57:04] LCpl Summerwind: No shit huh!
[08:57:13] LCpl Summerwind says agreeing with Komillia
[08:57:38] LCpl Summerwind: They played some of her stuff, shit, a damn Howlscreecher sounds better.
[08:58:01] 2 Lt. Komillia: Still, I don't recall as particularly politically savvy, something stinks.
[08:58:16] 2 Lt. Komillia: Hearing her as I mean.
[08:58:22] LCpl Summerwind looks at the maps. "So, yeah your flyboys will be about here, if Mitchell didn't fuck up the nav … again.
[08:59:23] 2 Lt. Gamjin: Fun, wish I were just an ordinary ground pounder again, instead of having overgrown ammo strapped to my back.
[08:59:32] Lt. Mitchell: I heard that Summerwind!
[08:59:48] 2 Lt. Komillia: I think she meant you to.
[08:59:52] LCpl Summerwind: yeah yeah, your mother!
[09:00:39] 2 Lt. Komillia: Uh-huh, now when can I be expecting the wedding invitation in the mail? You and my brother seem made for each other.
[09:00:53] LCpl Summerwind: Fuck that!
[09:01:08] LCpl Summerwind: No offense, I like the taco not the hot dog…
[09:01:16] 2 Lt. Komillia: I think that's where babies come from.
[09:01:33] LCpl Summerwind: Anyway, best you get out there or Lt. Ginsu out there will get pissed.
[09:01:43] 2 Lt. Komillia: Well, Mexican food is a little spicy for my taste.
[09:02:01] LCpl Summerwind: Oh, and if you see Ay, punch her in the tits for me, don't worry, she wont feel it
[09:02:13] 2 Lt. Gamjin is burying his face in his palm.
[09:02:41] 2Lt. Madresa: (( *cough!* ))
[09:03:09] LCpl Summerwind: Swear to god, that Legios crew, since when did the UEEF start conscripting hobbits!
[09:03:25] Lt. Ishida sneezes
[09:03:48] CWO Amdahl sneezes as well, somewhere far away in the Badlands.
[09:03:52] CWO Amdahl: (( ;) ))
[09:04:13] 2 Lt. Komillia: When all the supermodels ran out.
[09:05:14] LCpl Summerwind: I dunno, they got a pretty nice rack on em, hell you do to, swear, your little unit has the highest Tits per capita in the UEEF!
[09:06:07] 2 Lt. Komillia: Doc says they would have been bigger, but I try to keep as lithe as my physique allows.
[09:06:34] 2 Lt. Gamjin flees the scene to go check on his condor.
[09:06:57] LCpl Summerwind reaches up and pokes you. "Feels fine to me." she then mutters looking down to her, meager A cup
[09:07:54] 2 Lt. Komillia: It's inner beauty that lasts the longest, you might want to try working on preserving your inner spirit than on something that *will* fade in time.
[09:08:16] Narrator: The boosters are attached to the Bioroid and Condor, the techs tell you to go easy, as the mounting brackets are…how shall we say, experimental. The boosters will give you a top end of 800mph. Suki, lifts Ay's left behind Alpha, and joins you.
[09:09:27] 2 Lt. Komillia punches the throttle up about 3/4 power.
[09:09:52] Narrator: Meanwhile, in the Badlands, Lurana is able to help Sarah bring the Legios to it's 'feet' The entire right side is covered in the reddish dirt of the surrounding terrain, and Suki's Alpha is slightly askew in the mounting cradle.
[09:10:10] 2 Lt. Gamjin looks like he's trying to fly his battloid like a plane rather than a ballistic projectile.
[09:10:41] Narrator: The Silverback is found, all but totaled, upside down against a large boulder.
[09:11:22] CWO Amdahl: (( rar ))
[09:11:23] Lt. Jaron suits up into cyclone and readies for whatever is to come
[09:11:34] CWO Amdahl: (( I made all the pilot rolls for the Silverback… *weep* ))
[09:12:12] CWO Amdahl keeps trying to bring the Legios to its feet, peering at the Alpha askew, and trying to detach it. "Maybe if we can get it off, the Beta can go on foot…" She ponders, and checks the wing integrity.
[09:12:27] Narrator: The winds keep up their pace, Those on the ground, find that to face the wind causes the face plates, and the paint itself of the mecha they are in to be dulled such is the corrosive nature of the sand blown maelstrom
[09:13:21] Narrator: In time the wind subsides, leaving a lingering pall of dust above the ground, looking much like dry ice
[09:13:31] Lt. Fallnya gently digs the alpha out now and looks around after moving it out. "Jaron one of you take this alpha for now" *she looks about wondering why Alleria hasn't changed to battloid and gently knocks on the top of it
[09:14:00] 2Lt. Madresa gets her own Cyclone on quickly in the wind, blinking when it goes down.
[09:14:12] GM: The wing is fine Sarah, -10 MD is all
[09:14:18] 2Lt. Madresa: (( woo. ))
[09:15:05] Lt. Jaron exits from cyclone and gets to the alpha
[09:15:28] 2Lt. Madresa: (( you're giving him Suki's alpha? lol ; ))
[09:15:44] 2Lt. Madresa: (( musical chairs. ))
[09:15:47] GM: Oooo Jaron's taking his life into his own hands here.
[09:17:38] Lt. Jaron eventually gets in "I'm going to blame you, you know that right? What do you need me to do?"
[09:17:55] CWO Amdahl blinks at that and nods. "Suki will blame me as well, if anything happens to it."
[09:18:00] Lt. Fallnya: "Give it a systems check"
[09:18:25] Lt. Jaron runs system check
[09:19:25] Lt. Alleria grumbles crawling back up from the cargo bay into the cockpit grabbing her helmet side to answer "alright alright you can stop knocking I'm awake, sir or ma'am" *she sounds sassy but is obviously unsure which person is knocking
[09:19:25] GM: Jaron, you notice that, the mecha albeit difficult to sit into, as it the seat is adjusted for a slight build girl of 5'4, all the readouts are in Japanese.
[09:19:38] CWO Amdahl: (( LOL ))
[09:20:41] Lt. Fallnya: "Calm down in there change to battloid and prepare to move out, I'm not in the mood to test the wind again"
[09:20:59] Lt. Jaron grumbles and closes his eyes and go by memory along with adjusting the seat
[09:21:48] Lt. Alleria does so then looks around for Madresa making sure no one steps on her
[09:21:54] GM: roll me a some rolls folks real fast…anything to help you locate things. roll what you can, hit me
[09:22:11] Lt. Alleria: (least i assume she stepped out to)
[09:23:16] Lt. Alleria: Perc, [1d20+1] => [7,1] = (8), Sensory [1d100] => [93] = (93) vs 50%, nav [1d100] => [93] = (93) vs 65%
[09:24:00] CWO Amdahl: (Perc [1d20+1] => [1,1] = (2) RSI vs. 60% [1d100] => [94] = (94))
[09:24:20] GM: Clueless Invid is clueless
[09:24:39] 2Lt. Madresa: (Perc [1d20] => [4] = (4) RSI vs. 58% [1d100] => [42] = (42))
[09:24:50] Lt. Fallnya: Perc, [1d20] => [17] = (17), Sensory [1d100] => [56] = (56) vs 63%, nav [1d100] => [79] = (79) vs 78%, Wilderness survival (for landmarks) [1d100] => [66] = (66) vs 58%
[09:25:07] GM: Jaron?
[09:25:17] Lt. Jaron: pilot veritech [1d100] => [20] = (20) vs 76, perception [1d20+2] => [18,2] = (20), sensory [1d100] => [7] = (7) vs 60, detect concealment [1d100] => [67] = (67) vs 60
[09:26:16] GM: Alleria and Jaron you note something metallic some 100 meters to your NW
[09:26:55] GM: err, wait, not Alleria…Oblivious Jailbait is oblivious
[09:26:59] Lt. Jaron relays the information
[09:27:15] 2Lt. Madresa: (( I passed my RSI roll, unless penalty was too high ))
[09:27:17] Lt. Fallnya: (Wouldn't that be Fallnya?)
[09:27:27] GM: Lurana, you note the same, but Jaron has a better bearing on it then you…
[09:27:45] GM: yup, I goofed, I'm allowed lol
[09:28:10] Lt. Fallnya: "Alright, Jaron can you fly it or is there a problem?"
[09:28:48] Lt. Jaron replies "Well its in Japanese or something, so unless she has a special configuration I will be alright"
[09:30:17] GM: It's really hard, some things are in the same place, but, other then that, toggles and readouts you need are ALL fucked up, the only saving grace is that Suki has kept the numerical readouts in arabic numbers and not kanji.
[09:30:35] Lt. Fallnya: "Try but if you dump your fuel load thats your own fault" *she begins marching that way in battloid mode picking up the poor cyclone gently and placing it on her shoulder
[09:30:54] 2Lt. Madresa: (( which poor Cyclone? Me? Or… ))
[09:31:05] Lt. Fallnya: (you)
[09:31:07] GM: Jaron your sensory rolls etc will be at -35%
[09:31:08] 2Lt. Madresa: (( lol ))
[09:31:19] GM: actually -25%
[09:31:33] Lt. Jaron: [1d100] => [95] = (95) vs 25
[09:31:33] Lt. Fallnya: (i assumed Jaron put his in the cargo again)
[09:31:33] GM: Your a good pilot, some stuff will come to instinctively
[09:31:45] GM: well, not that
[09:31:47] GM: oww
[09:31:56] 2Lt. Madresa: (( rofl ))
[09:31:58] GM: whatever you TRIED to do…the opposite happens
[09:32:07] 2Lt. Madresa: (( just add +25 to the roll ))
[09:32:25] GM: which makes his 95 a 115
[09:32:39] GM: Super mega epic fail
[09:32:40] Lt. Fallnya: (he is doing it like me it seems)
[09:32:44] Lt. Jaron replies "Maybe not….I will have to go in cyclone, its not nature" (I just minus to my skill not add to roll)
[09:32:56] GM: kk
[09:33:03] Lt. Fallnya: (taking the negative and showing it in the negative as the %)
[09:33:09] GM: Ahhh nod
[09:33:21] GM: easier for me to see it as a - in the string, but okay
[09:33:55] Lt. Fallnya: (my guess is he was trying to do RSI)
[09:34:03] Lt. Fallnya: (pilot would be closer to the 50% mark)
[09:34:15] Lt. Jaron tries to make it into guardian mode (yes thats was what he asked for, sensory)
[09:34:57] GM: anyhow, you make your way to the track and as you turn the bend, rather, come around a rock formation you are standing in front of a Invid Shocktrooper! It's normal purple hull is sandblasted pale. the eye is blown out, from the inside and the crew hatch is likewise pushed open (Alleria roll a relevant medical skill)
[09:34:57] Lt. Fallnya: (either way Madresa any reaction to being picked up and placed on the Alpha's shoulders?)
[09:35:19] 2Lt. Madresa eeps and glances over. "Er… thanks."
[09:36:08] Narrator: Meanwhile Gamjin, Komillia and Suki are flying over the desert floor towards their teammates.
[09:36:21] Lt. Alleria: Xeno biology [1d100] => [20] = (20) vs 45%
[09:36:27] GM: any medical skill Alleria
[09:36:31] GM: will do
[09:37:37] Lt. Jaron soon exits the veritech and gets into cyclone. He eventually starts to skip jump to keep up with that
[09:38:25] GM: Alleria, you note that the blown out eye and cracked hatch seem to point that the Invid died here and it's decomposing body necrotizing blew the eye and hatch open with it's expanding gases
[09:39:03] CWO Amdahl: (( eek ))
[09:39:11] 2 Lt. Komillia: "Flying over the sand, just flying over the sand, what a tedious feeling, I'm flying over the sand."
[09:39:28] Lt. Alleria makes a scan and moves a bit closer to the hulk poking it testing the material a bit
[09:39:46] Ishida Suki: Relish the monotony Komillia-chan…the alternative is far more deadly.
[09:39:50] Lt. Alleria: "Well thats one less Invid scum"
[09:40:16] Lt. Alleria: (least i don't think she knows the chief is Invid yet right?)
[09:40:21] GM: nope
[09:40:24] CWO Amdahl: (( nope. lol. ))
[09:41:41] CWO Amdahl peers at the destroyed hulk, and shrugs at it a little bit from her own battloid, following over. "Hm. Must have been here a long time."
[09:42:19] Lt. Jaron watches the inspection, wiping some sand from visor
[09:42:27] GM: As you ponder the hull you pass before the blown out eye. Suddenly, something moves!!!
[09:42:57] GM: A screeching bird! BRRRRAAAAWWWWWWWWK! Bursts forth from the eye and spreads it's wings!!!!
[09:43:16] GM: roll HF
[09:43:27] CWO Amdahl twitches at that, and leans in closer with her big Beta. Then jumps back with it at the bird.
[09:43:28] Lt. Fallnya moves closer examining the metal her self to see if its still usable after all this time then raises her gunpods as the gunpods
[09:43:42] CWO Amdahl: [1d20] => [13] = (13)
[09:43:51] 2Lt. Madresa: [1d20] => [13] = (13)
[09:44:00] Lt. Jaron: [1d20+2] => [15,2] = (17)
[09:44:04] Lt. Fallnya: [1d20+2] => [1,2] = (3)
[09:44:16] Lt. Alleria: [1d20] => [12] = (12)
[09:44:51] GM: Sarah, the fact your are in your Beta saves you from reacting to badly, same for you Ay, Jaron, you find the event almost funny. Lurana, you…yeah, you…..moving on.
[09:45:16] Lt. Alleria: (panic shoots the bird?)
[09:45:45] 2Lt. Madresa: (( soiling herself more like, I'd think, on a nat 1. ))
[09:45:50] GM: Alleria opens up and the bird and the front of the Invid mecha, and the birds nest within are slagged.
[09:46:10] Lt. Fallnya: (no that would be for Fallnya gm)
[09:46:30] Lt. Fallnya: (natural 1 means any thing btw Madresa, usually between gm and player
[09:47:01] GM: nope with a one you kind….well, you do something involuntary, but no aggressive action. Since you posted as Alleria for that question, I went with her as the shooter
[09:47:24] Lt. Jaron looks up at the blasting "What in the world?"
[09:47:24] 2Lt. Madresa: (( hee hee hee ))
[09:48:33] CWO Amdahl glances over to the shooter and laughs just a little bit. "Don't think the birds are quite a threat, actually." She peeks at the wreck though, to see if there's a PC canister with anything left in it, though, or enough to be worthwhile.
[09:49:55] GM: Sarah, the Shock trooper is spent, there is no appreciable PC trace from it.
[09:50:48] Lt. Jaron sighs and walks past the Invid trooper
[09:51:16] GM: Sarah, that PC trace you felt earlier is now…all pervasive., you cant be sure, but, it's close, and it's big
[09:51:50] Lt. Fallnya: (Btw i thought we were looking for a downed pilot not the PC trace?)
[09:51:56] GM: yes
[09:51:58] GM: we are
[09:52:09] GM: I'm just giving Sarah here some flavor text
[09:52:26] GM: roll and RSI y'all
[09:52:43] CWO Amdahl blinks a little bit in her cockpit, looking around quickly. "Something big is going on around here… there's something really close generating a huge protoculture signature…" She peers around, and checks her sensors.
[09:52:46] CWO Amdahl: [1d100] => [2] = (2)
[09:53:36] GM: Sadly with that excellent roll you pick nothing up relating to the PC trace, but you do pick up a faint be-beep be-beep
[09:55:01] GM: anyone else gonna roll?
[09:55:14] Lt. Fallnya after the panic shooting and melting the cockpit of the trooper to slag she comes down barrels smoking on her guns then looks about "You didn't see me waist half my gun ammo.."
[09:55:18] Lt. Jaron: Sensory [1d100] => [39] = (39) vs 60
[09:55:32] Lt. Fallnya then moves over to sensory to look around again [1d100] => [72] = (72) vs 63%
[09:55:54] CWO Amdahl glances up and looks around. "Got something on sensors, it's faint, but it's there, a steady tracking beacon."
[09:56:05] GM: Jaron, while you do not see what Sarah sees' you pick up inbound targets from behind you
[09:56:06] Lt. Alleria: "Of course we did, here i am getting in trouble for burning my missiles its some one else turn!"
[09:57:24] Lt. Jaron relays the coordinates to the others "Might wanna take up positions"
[09:57:56] Lt. Alleria: "What for?" *she makes a scan [1d100] => [35] = (35) vs 50%
[09:58:00] Lt. Jaron gets behind a rock cropping for cover
[09:58:08] GM: Komillia, Gamjin and Suki roll RSI
[09:58:18] Lt. Alleria: *then runs it through IFF*
[09:58:22] Lt. Ishida: [1d100] => [19] = (19)
[09:58:28] Lt. Alleria: [1d100] => [80] = (80) vs 50%
[09:58:33] Lt. Jaron replies "Open your ears, I relayed coordinates"
[09:59:20] GM: Alleria, your IFF pings only friendlies
[09:59:22] 2 Lt. Komillia: [1d100] => [68] = (68)
[09:59:36] Lt. Alleria: "Why are you hiding there friendly"
[10:00:07] Lt. Jaron: "Didn't come up as friendly on my scan"
[10:00:09] 2 Lt. Komillia: vs 55
[10:00:15] 2 Lt. Gamjin: [1d100] => [2] = (2)
[10:00:20] 2 Lt. Gamjin: vs. 50
[10:00:20] Lt. Ishida: I see them, they've gone to threat posture!
[10:00:37] Lt. Ishida transforms to battloid and lands.
[10:00:47] Lt. Ishida: Hitman 1-1 to Hitman Actual come in over.
[10:00:58] CWO Amdahl swears quickly at the coordinate relay, glancing around and getting ready for possible battle, though she keeps tracking the beacon.
[10:01:45] Lt. Fallnya: "Hitman Actual, Good to see you hitman 1-1"
[10:01:47] Lt. Ishida: Repeat, Hitman 1-1 to Hitman Actual…come in over.
[10:01:57] Lt. Ishida: There you are, good to hear you as well.
[10:02:03] Lt. Fallnya: (btw only 2 of us went to threat posture)
[10:02:19] Lt. Ishida: We are inbound, confirm your track…
[10:02:37] GM: Some radio chatter later, and the two teams are united.
[10:02:37] Lt. Fallnya: "Confirm, Hitman Stand down"
[10:02:45] Lt. Jaron does so
[10:03:32] Lt. Ishida walks up her mecha in Battloid and sees a familiar alpha in battloid…
[10:03:50] Lt. Ishida: Um…who ever is in my bird…would you care for a trade?
[10:03:55] Lt. Fallnya: (guardian actually, and not moved)
[10:04:18] Lt. Fallnya: (Jaron jumped out cause he couldn't get it to move hes in cyclone *points up*)
[10:04:26] Lt. Jaron: (yep)
[10:04:39] GM: my bad
[10:04:47] Lt. Ishida: Ummm, wheres my Alpha?
[10:05:06] Lt. Fallnya points to it in guardian just down the hill some sand dusted on the outside
[10:05:14] Lt. Jaron points in its general direction
[10:05:19] 2 Lt. Gamjin: Disconnecting from server…
[10:05:20] Lt. Ishida walks over to it…
[10:05:31] Lt. Ishida: What the…what happened to my plane!? SARAH!!!!!
[10:05:49] Lt. Fallnya: "Not her fault wind forced us down"
[10:06:24] Lt. Fallnya: "Its in better shape than the Silverback" *points to it*
[10:06:35] Lt. Ishida seems to ignore that, "Sarah! I left Ryu-chan to you for a few hours….and…he's all messed up!
[10:06:49] Lt. Ishida: What did you do to him?
[10:08:11] Lt. Jaron comments "Its ok; at least it wasn't a leg or something"
[10:09:49] CWO Amdahl stands down with a distinct relaxed sigh, looking around from inside her Beta. Then she jumps out of her skin at the scream and droops. "I got caught in a wind tunnel moving sideways, that's what. Whats worse is that I was trying to set it down to /avoid/ that."
[10:11:15] Lt. Ishida looks at the mecha and then at Sarah, and then back at the mecha…."But…" she sighs and dismounts after transforming to Guardian "Airbags, I brought your Alpha." Suki walks over to her bird and hops in…
[10:12:42] Lt. Fallnya: "Lt i tried to get Jaron to run a systems check over it but he couldn't understand the language you have on your consoles, if any things changed out of your likeness yell at me not the others"
[10:12:55] CWO Amdahl sighs as well and droops. "I'm sorry, ma'am… I was trying to prevent damage to it. We were all landing down…" She shakes her head.
[10:13:00] Lt. Fallnya gently lifts airbags from her shoulder and places her near her plane
[10:14:00] 2Lt. Madresa perks up at that, eeking at being plucked off a shoulder. "Careful with me, ma'am…" She ponders, and looks to Jaron. "Asides, since there's a superior officer here without their own Alpha, shouldn't he be offered first choice of what he wants to be in?"
[10:14:29] Lt. Ishida makes a dismissive waving motion as if to say 'forget about it' and fires her bird up and joins the team in Battloid mode.
[10:15:09] Lt. Jaron replies to Madresa "I'm fine"
[10:15:48] 2Lt. Madresa nods quickly and climbs up into her Alpha then, readjusting the seat for a tall person again and switching it into Battloid mode quickly.
[10:16:15] Lt. Fallnya begins transmitting the orders to the rest so they know why were all the way out here
[10:16:17] GM: Airbags notes that the seat wasn't adjusted to much, just enough for the smaller pilot to reach the controls.
[10:16:27] Lt. Jaron comments "I will check on the Silverback, its only half a click."
[10:16:42] Lt. Fallnya: "Totaled Jaron"
[10:16:55] Lt. Fallnya: "i took a look at it before we moved on"
[10:18:01] 2Lt. Madresa nods quickly at the controls, and seat, and settles in.
[10:18:45] Lt. Fallnya: "Sarah can you transmit where your getting the distress beacon from so we can angle in on it and hope our pilot is still there?"
[10:19:00] CWO Amdahl glances around again. "Anyway, I'm watching for that beacon, so we can head for it. And watching for any direction to that signature in case it's something important." She sends along her sensor data on the beacon to the others.
[10:19:02] GM: what distress beacon?
[10:19:12] Lt. Alleria: (the beep thing?)
[10:19:15] Lt. Jaron nods to Lurana "Didn't know you did"
[10:19:23] GM: hehehe you so smart
[10:20:17] Lt. Fallnya: "Do you want back in the beta or you can sit on my lap?" *She says snickering like as if shes joking on the latter half*
[10:21:30] Lt. Jaron: "I think I will be alright on the ground here"
[10:21:42] GM: A little while later you make your way thru the craggy terrain, the area is littered in rocky formations, looking much like a very alien Arizona desert, a slight wind whips up sand from the ground, and you can see here and there, debris, half buried…but recent, around you.
[10:22:14] CWO Amdahl keeps following the beacon, while watching for that PC trace as well.
[10:22:20] CWO Amdahl: [1d20+5] => [7,5] = (12)
[10:23:02] Lt. Alleria marches along in her beta feeling like a battloid pilot right now than a veritech pilot but either one she didn't really originally sign up for
[10:23:18] GM: Sarah, you sense that there is PC about, and the way it is distributed suggests it was a PC power plant having rained down in pieces upon the desert floor
[10:23:22] Lt. Fallnya stays around the back keeping eye on sensors and looking about
[10:24:14] CWO Amdahl: (( I'm more looking for that one deep under the desert as well. Unless that's part of this ))
[10:24:43] GM: The deep trace is 50 km away, underground, and large, to your east south east
[10:24:49] CWO Amdahl: (( right. ))
[10:26:00] Lt. Fallnya: [1d20] => [7] = (7) perc [1d100] => [43] = (43) vs 63% RSI btw
[10:26:40] Lt. Ishida: (Detect Concealment [1d100] => [91] = (91) vs 70, RSI [1d100] => [14] = (14) vs 60%)
[10:26:40] 2Lt. Madresa peeks at her Alpha's sensors, trying to diddle with them ([1d100] => [16] = (16) vs 58%)
[10:27:00] GM: hehehe you said diddle
[10:27:08] 2Lt. Madresa: (( *smacks* ))
[10:27:57] Lt. Alleria bumps into Madresa as she slows a bit to scan with her sensors while trying to scan with hers as well [1d100] => [35] = (35) vs 50%
[10:28:15] Lt. Jaron just checks an eye out for now (perception [1d20+2] => [5,2] = (7), detect concealment [1d100] => [3] = (3) vs 60)
[10:28:59] GM: Suki and Alleria are able to pick up where the beeps are coming from (wait for it Jaron)
[10:29:33] Lt. Alleria points "Beeping seems to be coming from there?"
[10:29:42] Lt. Alleria: (or that way)
[10:29:59] GM: The beeping is from about 200 feet in front of you, you can clearly see fresh debris around, although the debris field is very sparse
[10:31:32] Lt. Alleria moves to try and dig gently with her beta for what is sending the beeps
[10:32:02] Lt. Alleria and if that don't work she jettisons her medical cyclone and steps out to use it instead
[10:32:07] GM: You dig, and it's easy enough to unearth the forward nose section of an Alpha
[10:32:32] GM: You will be in your cyc
[10:32:40] GM: since it would be difficult for the beta …
[10:32:57] Lt. Alleria digs some more trying to uncover it fully "Found something
[10:33:09] Lt. Alleria: (as in shes hoping its the whole cockpit section)
[10:33:18] Lt. Jaron skips up to take note.
[10:33:36] GM: As you dig and the rest of of you look on, and about for trouble …roll percs all but Alleria (who is preoccupied.)
[10:33:50] 2Lt. Madresa: [1d20] => [16] = (16)
[10:33:55] Lt. Ishida: [1d20+3] => [18,3] = (21)
[10:33:59] CWO Amdahl: [1d20+1] => [3,1] = (4)
[10:34:07] CWO Amdahl: (( oblivious Invid is oblivious ))
[10:34:07] Lt. Jaron: [1d20+2] => [1,2] = (3)
[10:34:14] CWO Amdahl: (( but then, so is Jaron. ))
[10:34:18] CWO Amdahl: (( rofl ))
[10:34:18] Lt. Jaron: (desert squirrel!)
[10:34:21] Lt. Fallnya: [1d20] => [16] = (16)
[10:34:35] GM: I swear Suki will have to be jealous as she thinks you are fixated on Jailbait bent over ass in the air, digging
[10:35:14] Lt. Ishida: Woah! Incoming!
[10:35:17] Lt. Fallnya: (Jaron is prolly to busy thinking bout the night prior)
[10:35:24] Lt. Ishida steps her mecha to the left!
[10:35:50] GM: Airbags you see it too, an object on a lob, falling towards you
[10:36:17] 2Lt. Madresa blinks and steps right quickly, watching the object and blinking. "What's that?"
[10:36:48] GM: Lu, you see it too
[10:38:10] Lt. Fallnya steps aside "Cover the cyclones as best as possible draw the fire, if it has weapons." *She zooms on it trying to ID the object
[10:38:25] GM: Landing at your feet is a CVR-3 clad individual. He, you can only tell gender by the class of armor, appears to have been wadded up like a used up piece of paper and splatters as he impacts the ground!
[10:38:41] GM: roll HF
[10:38:48] Lt. Ishida: [1d20] => [20] = (20)
[10:38:54] 2Lt. Madresa: [1d20] => [2] = (2)
[10:38:55] Lt. Fallnya: [1d20+2] => [17,2] = (19)
[10:39:07] CWO Amdahl: [1d20] => [7] = (7)
[10:39:16] GM: damn Suki doesn't give a SHIT!
[10:39:34] CWO Amdahl: (( evil Suki ))
[10:39:35] Lt. Fallnya: (lol i don't think Fallnya would much either?)
[10:39:36] GM: Airbags and Sarah, you however are both horrified!
[10:39:49] GM: Nope Lu s like…eww, and thats about it
[10:40:04] CWO Amdahl winces and peels back just a little bit, twitching softly at the sight of the crumpled up person.
[10:40:09] GM: Jaron?
[10:40:17] GM: HF from joo
[10:40:27] GM: and you to James wb
[10:40:28] Lt. Jaron: [1d20] => [13] = (13)
[10:40:54] GM: Jaron, you are all 'Okay, thats just fucking gross!"
[10:41:03] 2Lt. Madresa stares wide-eyed, shaking in her cockpit and almost feeling soiled from the experience, though she keeps staring, unable to look away.
[10:42:22] Lt. Jaron turns slightly and shakes his head a moment before looking again
[10:42:46] 2 LT Komillia: [1d20] => [11] = (11)
[10:43:03] Lt. Alleria digs even tries tugging the nose of the alpha to try and drag it out
[10:43:08] 2 LT Gamjin: [1d20] => [12] = (12)
[10:43:15] GM: Komillia, you are not completely freaked, but damn, um, yeah, it's pretty unpleasant what you see
[10:43:34] GM: Gamjin has about the same reaction but damned if he'll admit any bad feelings
[10:44:14] 2 LT Gamjin: ((what are we seeing?))
[10:44:32] GM: As you take stock of the gore in front of you your radar system ping hostiles on the nearby ridge, not more then 300 feet away.
[10:44:32] Lt. Alleria: (a splattered body that just dropped from the sky
[10:45:06] 2 LT Gamjin looks up trying to figure out where it came from.
[10:45:15] GM: Jaron, you see the ground move behind Alleria
[10:45:44] 2 LT Komillia: There are more respectful ways of disposing of a body.
[10:46:35] Lt. Jaron moves to get Alleria out of the way "Incoming from beneath"
[10:46:55] Lt. Alleria gets bulled over by Jaron?
[10:48:01] Lt. Fallnya: "We got hostiles on the ridge
[10:48:29] Lt. Jaron comments "Underground as well" soon aiming in the direction of the ground moving.
[10:49:28] GM: Cresting the ridge are a pair of Odeon's!! One is dual wielding, the other is not. Alleria, as you hear Jaron's cry you turn around and find yourself nose to snout with a snarling Cougar! The Non dual wielding Odeon points at the group and a phalanx of 15 more Cougars crest the ridge, and charge!
[10:50:48] Lt. Jaron sighs "awww crud"
[10:51:37] GM: Init
[10:51:46] Lt. Ishida: [1d20+5] => [10,5] = (15)
[10:51:52] CWO Amdahl: [1d20+1] => [12,1] = (13)
[10:51:57] 2 LT Komillia: ((… where would an active brain be to control those things?))
[10:52:05] CWO Amdahl: (( think about it ))

[11:15:33] GM: Ay, your attack
[11:17:14] 2Lt. Madresa whirls around at the cats, grumbling quickly at their attack. She locks in with an idea, and tries to fire three missiles at the whole cluster, hoping they're close enough to make some of them at least 'go away'.
[11:17:25] 2Lt. Madresa: [1d20+3] => [9,3] = (12)
[11:17:31] GM: 3 at each cat?

[11:30:25] GM: Sarah
[11:33:22] CWO Amdahl swears very loudly at the sight of the inorganics, looking around. "I just love unpleasant surprises…" She notices Suki taking one Odeon, and whirls to take on the other one, letting loose eight missiles towards the lumbering contraption immediately. [1d20+3] => [17,3] = (20)
[11:33:55] Odeon fires on the incoming volley
[11:34:02] Odeon: [1d20+2] => [3,2] = (5)

[11:46:04] Lt. Fallnya: (potty move on since medic girl is out
[11:46:21] GM: yup
[11:47:52] 2Lt. Madresa sees one of the cats standing nose to snout with little Alleria, and swears softly. She sights it very carefully, trying to pulse a quick burst towards the hindquarters of said cougar, trying to get it without getting Alleria, making sure she won't shade in the little girl's direction.
[11:47:56] 2Lt. Madresa: (( penalty for that? ))
[11:48:14] GM: -4 must roll over a natural 12
[11:48:28] 2Lt. Madresa: [1d20+12] => [18,12] = (30)

[11:50:26] Lt. Alleria just lies there KO'ed and oblivious
[11:50:54] Lt. Ishida will let a line of strafe loose at the pack attacking Komillia, it's going to hurt, but with them all over her, hopefully they will take the brunt of it all. Suppress area. (god I hope this works)
[11:51:08] 2 LT Komillia is raging against the mecha cat gropings/maulings.
[11:51:23] Lt. Ishida: [1d20+11] => [17,11] = (28)

[11:55:46] GM: Jaron then Komillia, let Suki's attack stand the humor is wonderful…
[11:55:52] Lt. Jaron fires another burst, hoping to hit one this time (to strike [1d20+6] => [20,6] = (26); dmg [2d4*10] => 50 md)
[11:55:54] CWO Amdahl: (( heehee ))
[11:55:56] 2 LT Komillia: ((when combat ends, you may wish to seek the help of a good bed.))
[11:56:04] GM: Dayumm Jaron!

[11:56:44] GM: 4 left, Komillia your go
[11:57:06] GM: The nasties are trying to nibble on Ay
[11:57:15] 2 LT Komillia fires the gunpod at the nearest cougar.
[11:57:20] Cougar pack: Mmmm nom nom nom
[11:57:29] 2 LT Komillia: [1d20+9] => [20,9] = (29)
[11:57:31] GM: Roll it

[11:59:09] 2 LT Komillia: [(1d6*10+8)*2] => 116
[11:59:18] 2 LT Komillia: (forgot the +8 anyway)
[11:59:47] GM: The cougar dies, but the one you hit with the 20 walks over leaps up onto your chest and bitch slaps you…
[12:00:00] GM: I kid!
[12:00:05] CWO Amdahl: (( rotfl ))
[12:00:08] GM: You wax the target you fired at!!!

[12:00:35] Cougar pack: [1d20+4] => [8,4] = (12)
[12:01:07] 2Lt. Madresa tries to get away from the nibbling, if she can. [1d20+14] => [19,14] = (33)
[12:01:38] GM: That 20 reminded my of that scene in Harlem nights…Arsenio Hall and those other guys firing machine guns into the shop, and that one guy is with the pistol, and Arsenio is like "Will you stop shooting that little shit!"
[12:01:59] 2Lt. Madresa: (( lol ))

[12:07:51] GM: The Cougar leaps at your nose then
[12:09:46] GM: No parry attempt?
[12:10:11] CWO Amdahl: (( *checks the order to see when her turn is quietly* ))
[12:10:18] 2 LT Gamjin: [1d20+10] => [10,10] = (20)
[12:10:33] 2 LT Gamjin parries is Paris.
[12:10:35] GM: Well it starts over after Gamjin, but he does get a parry attempt for the attack on him
[12:10:46] 2 LT Gamjin: (*in paris)
[12:10:50] GM: You are able to swat the kitty away!
[12:10:54] GM: Lurana
[12:10:59] CWO Amdahl: (( it does? ))
[12:11:12] CWO Amdahl: (( Ay has attacked twice, I've only attacked once. ))
[12:11:13] Lt. Fallnya turns to the other kitty and sprits it with lasers as well
[12:11:18] Lt. Fallnya: [1d20+8] => [15,8] = (23)

[12:12:24] CWO Amdahl targets the remaining cat with the pulse cannons on one of the Beta's forearms, trying to pick it off from bothering Gamjin quickly. [1d20+9] => [3,9] = (12) dmg. [1d6*10] => 10

[12:13:56] GM: Well well well, it lives! and is not behind Gamjin!
[12:14:02] GM: It leaps at his back
[12:14:08] GM: [1d20+4] => [13,4] = (17)
[12:14:59] 2 LT Gamjin dodges if possible.
[12:15:06] GM: roll it
[12:15:09] 2 LT Gamjin: [1d20+9] => [12,9] = (21)
[12:15:53] GM: Not sure how! But Gamjin is able to maneuver his mecha away at the last second and the invid kitty sails over it!! Missing
[12:16:04] GM: Ay
[12:16:09] 2 LT Gamjin bent over.
[12:16:34] GM: Ay, your shot last cat
[12:17:56] CWO Amdahl targets her EU-13 again, checking at range and firing one brief burst towards the remaining little cat, wanting to be rid of it quickly. [1d20+13] => [18,13] = (31) dmg. [(2d4*10)+30] => 60
[12:18:10] GM: [1d20+6] => [9,6] = (15)
[12:18:29] GM: Kitty tries to avoid the hit but is unable to!
[12:19:02] GM: The kitty is obliterated crumbling to shards in front of you!
[12:19:36] Lt. Ishida lands her mecha in battloid mode. "Clear Left!"
[12:19:39] Lt. Jaron: "So Invid and Haydonites……we sure get the nice places to visit"
[12:20:07] Lt. Jaron replies "Clear"
[12:20:23] Lt. Fallnya worried about new girl cause she hasn't moved but once during combat she disembarks "Jailbait?" *she speaks over the com as she does leave her mech grabbing her gallant just in case and moves over to her lump body
[12:20:33] GM: As the all clear call is given Alleria finally pulls herself to her feet…
[12:22:00] Lt. Alleria stands up woozy like shaking her head
[12:22:06] CWO Amdahl mutters and looks around. "First time I'd ever seen those before. We're out in the deep wastes, must be a leftover from the previous invasion." She sighs and looks around. "That might also explain the protoculture signature so far below ground. Crap. A leftover hive brain. Still up and trying to run on reserves. Great."
[12:23:02] Lt. Ishida walks over and scoops up the dead pilot.
[12:23:24] Lt. Jaron asks Sarah "Well, could we get these reserves to help against the Haydonites?":
[12:23:50] Lt. Ishida transforming to Guardian mode sh cups the corpse with the mecha's hands to protect it from the elements.
[12:23:58] Lt. Fallnya notices her move and get up then looks around then begins to pick up parts from the cougars hoping theirs enough to piece together and make an interesting guard pet if she can program it [1d100] => [39] = (39) Salvage 58%
[12:24:26] GM: When Inorganics are killed they shatter into dust
[12:24:43] Lt. Fallnya: (oh didn't know that thought they were like any mech )
[12:24:43] GM: Such is the nature of the Invid alchemy used to create them
[12:25:07] Lt. Jaron skips and hops up to the ridge to get a look from above.
[12:25:25] CWO Amdahl glances over towards Jaron and shrugs. "Not if it sensed me shooting the big one or the cat. And if it's from the previous invasion, it probably won't listen to me at all. Since I'm from the other side of the rift between the groups."
[12:25:31] GM: ((Honestly, it's prolly based on HG being lazy and not wanting to animate a mecha corpse, easier to animate a enemy shattering and then move on))
[12:26:09] Lt. Alleria looks around getting her bearings then realizes "Oh" *she tries to pull out the nose of the alpha again hoping it has what we came to look for if this was our guy
[12:26:53] GM: Lu, Alleria has found something, I will use you 39 for salvage . you find the flight data recorder.
[12:27:41] Lt. Ishida: Actual…recommend we extract…no telling how many of those are still out there.
[12:27:48] Lt. Jaron looks around and checks sensors while up top (perception [1d20+2] => [11,2] = (13); sensory equip [1d100] => [46] = (46) vs 60)
[12:28:17] GM: As if to confirm Suki's comment, Jaron, your sensors start to ping with movement
[12:28:34] Lt. Fallnya: "Roger, was thinking the same thing, i believe i managed to get the data recorder we were sent to recover."
[12:28:42] 2 LT Komillia: Yeah, and my Bioroid is close to thrashed, no thinks to the soulless missiles…
[12:28:45] GM: Hudson: We got signals, in front, and behind! They're inside the walls man!
[12:28:53] CWO Amdahl: (( rofl ))
[12:28:55] Lt. Jaron radios "I got some movement coming"\
[12:29:10] GM: Actually, Suki was using guns Kommie!
[12:29:52] CWO Amdahl: (( heehee ))
[12:30:07] Lt. Fallyna hustles back into her fighter as well as lu and preps for take off "Legios formation once we get airborne lets get out of here "
[12:31:44] Lt. Jaron heads to one of the cargo bays for liftoff
[12:31:56] Narrator: With their target acquired, the marines move back to base, pondering the questions about the enemy they just faced. With the war against the Haydonites, the presence of Regent Inorganics so close to Point R is troubling at best.
