Post by: Andrew on January 21, 2008, 05:17:33 PM
I found something cool in the armory. It looks like a gun, but I havn't tested it out yet.


Title: Re: AGGF part 2
Post by: Derek on January 21, 2008, 05:22:30 PM
Well, don't test in here, obviously. We've got enough holes in the ceiling.


Title: Re: AGGF part 2
Post by: Andrew on January 21, 2008, 10:06:48 PM
I know that. I was going to the firing range nearby. I just wonder why the bullets were numbered.


Title: Re: AGGF part 2
Post by: Sume Gai on January 21, 2008, 10:24:23 PM
I think you should use the "other" firing range...\


near mt Jaybee...


Title: Re: AGGF part 2
Post by: Andrew on January 21, 2008, 10:31:36 PM
Ok, whatever.

*heads towards the "other" firing range*


Title: Re: AGGF part 2
Post by: Derek on January 21, 2008, 10:55:11 PM
Just remember not to use the #9, #11, and #13 shells.

I think it was #13. Was it #13, or #3? Help me out, guys.


Title: Re: AGGF part 2
Post by: Andrew on January 21, 2008, 11:04:34 PM
I think it was a #3. I tried a #5 and it did some serious damage. I'm filing this under heavy artillery and Emergency Use Only. I'm also keeping it hidden from now on to avoid the temptation.


Title: Re: AGGF part 2
Post by: Derek on January 21, 2008, 11:06:59 PM
Not to mention the fact those shells are really hard to find and seriously fricken expensive.


Title: Re: AGGF part 2
Post by: Andrew on January 21, 2008, 11:35:29 PM
I found a handfull near the caster, but I could probably find more if I go spelunking through the armory at a later point. Also, Derek, Do you know of anyone who sells these things?


Title: Re: AGGF part 2
Post by: Derek on January 22, 2008, 12:24:07 AM
Not off the top of my head, but I'll keep an eye out for them. If I find any, I'll make sure to get the damn things before someone else can.


Title: Re: AGGF part 2
Post by: JayBee on January 22, 2008, 02:44:31 AM
Why does everyone want to vandalize my mountain? :'(


Title: Re: AGGF part 2
Post by: Derek on January 22, 2008, 09:36:54 AM
Because we're getting complaints from the neighboring towns about vandalizing it into Mt. JayBee in the first place. And a few people actually begging or offering money to at least fix that part of it.

Speaking of, one of those last kinds of people came by. Hey Andrew, I think we can afford to replace another Caster shell, now. You wanna blow out the left eye, or can I?


Title: Re: AGGF part 2
Post by: Sume Gai on January 22, 2008, 10:44:02 AM
*imagines Jaybee's reaction*

"some people don't appreciate art" you say

*sees the amount of zeros on the payment*

I don't think I appreciate art anymore, either.

I'm heading out on patrol, feel free to join me.

Post by: Tyria on January 22, 2008, 01:24:10 PM
Tyria reporting in.

Most of the E-Field and 2 Inertial Cancellers have arrived. We will begin mounting the trap at once. Any luck at finding Giga-chan so far?

INCOMING BURST TRANSMISSION
encryption code E698R3T-X99

I think I've found something but my X Divider Kai is nearing it's return limit. I'm going to leave a beacon if anyone wants to pick up the trail here; the coordinates are AX-7643-FT-4329

I think Gigalot @ went north from here but I can't be sure.

END TRANSMISSION-----


Title: Re: AGGF part 2
Post by: Tyria on January 22, 2008, 04:04:18 PM
Good, if anyone makes contact with it, remember to shoot to disable, we don't want it to be totally blow up and have his cristals spread all around for months, since we will be ready to ambush it in the weekend.


Title: Re: AGGF part 2
Post by: Sume Gai on January 22, 2008, 04:23:14 PM
I'm back and I think I'll have Astonage do a full tune up to maximize the condenser efficiency

I'll use the 008L for the remainder of the time before we take out the Gigalot @.

but I'm tired from the extended recon so I'll take a rest for a bit before heading out again. 


Title: Re: AGGF part 2
Post by: Sakura77 on January 23, 2008, 10:11:10 AM
Commander, I got an e-mail from Mao Industries saying that they want us to test some next gen mechs for them in live combat. They won't divulge the names until we agree to test them.


Title: Re: AGGF part 2
Post by: Sume Gai on January 23, 2008, 08:37:25 PM
I'm willing but we need to focus on Gigalot @ right now. If Ring is willing to arrange for delivery we'll put the mechs through their paces (and then some)

I'm heading out on patrol in the 008L


Title: Re: AGGF part 2
Post by: Sakura77 on January 23, 2008, 09:42:02 PM
I'll e-mail her and I expect her to reply tomorrow. I'll reveal some of the mechs that we are to test when I get an e-mail and I will tell her we are having to issues with a runaway experiment but, nothing more. Well, I am going to bed see you in the morning.


Title: Re: AGGF part 2
Post by: Sume Gai on January 23, 2008, 10:10:25 PM
I don't think I'll ever hear the end of this if Dr. Radom finds out the whole story

maybe we should send Tyria to meet Dr. Radom after this whole mess is over


Title: Re: AGGF part 2
Post by: Dsvaun on January 23, 2008, 10:30:44 PM
I'll send flowers to the funeral.


Title: Re: AGGF part 2
Post by: Tyria on January 24, 2008, 05:07:16 AM
Hmn...a meeting with Dr. Random...I guess I will have to let the Altaisen fight Giga-chan and make a video of it, so I can show her how the full Earth mech has "prevailed uppon the evil EOT" and I wanted to larn more about it (since it's by no means as dangerous, so I still have access to the materials). Ego massage is the way to go on this one!


Title: Re: AGGF part 2
Post by: Sakura77 on January 24, 2008, 09:44:58 AM
Ring sent me a reply, we are going to get two long range and one close range machines. They are the Cerberus, the Garmraid, and the Bellzelute. Every so often we are to send the combat data and our own opinions on the three and after the testing is over, they are looking into the possibility of upgrading the three along with the Coustwell that they sent us. They'll arrive next monday.


Title: Re: AGGF part 2
Post by: Tyria on January 24, 2008, 06:08:51 PM
Tyria reporting in.

We have finished mounting 86% of the trap. Tomohow morning we intend to finish it and make a test. With the data of it, we want our shooter to train on the simulator (it will be Sume Gai on 008L, right?), so we can perfect the scynchro of the field operator and the shoot, minimizing the damage to the trap components.


Title: Re: AGGF part 2
Post by: JayBee on January 24, 2008, 07:01:49 PM
I thoguht it was me in XDiv Kai.


I've been hitting the sims familiarizing myself. Especially set-up and charge time on the satellite cannon.
There's a second or so of light-lag between us and the Moon, and I don't want to get caught with my pants down because I misjudged the microwave beam timing.


Title: Re: AGGF part 2
Post by: Sume Gai on January 24, 2008, 07:18:01 PM
Jaybee will lead with the Satellite System and I'll follow up with the Black hole cannon

i f this works we'll break it up then my BHC will suck up all the pieces


Title: Re: AGGF part 2
Post by: Tyria on January 25, 2008, 03:56:45 PM
Godd job everybody!

The trap is set and tested, simulation results indicate 97% succes rate on the bombardment for Giga-chan with size up to 60 metters.

We just have to lure him into it and pray he didn't grow way too much...(if he is over 100m we may have some problems, but it is still on the safe margin)


Title: Re: AGGF part 2
Post by: Sume Gai on January 25, 2008, 08:14:20 PM
Tyria I found him; Gigalot @ is currently at EV-9453-RJ-6781

he's heading in the direction of mount Jaybee

By my estimate his growth rate must have slowed as he's only around 45 meters long (my guess is he grows as a reaction to being damaged)

I think we can spring our trap at 2200 tomorrow if you set up at point QS-5390-YC-7804 (about a mile and a half east of mt. Jaybee)


Title: Re: AGGF part 2
Post by: Tyria on January 26, 2008, 06:48:28 AM
All right!

All trap personel, be on stand-by on 2000 hours!


Title: Re: AGGF part 2
Post by: JayBee on January 26, 2008, 02:58:27 PM
I'm gonna head out now.
Set up camp in Mount Jaybee's right ear. Make sure the... thing... doesn't see me coming.

I'll be keeping radio silence until it's confirmed destroyed 
Gonna duck back undercover after the blast so it can't counterstrike if it survives somehow.

I'm sure you'll see me blast the monstrosity, even if I don't say anything.



(IRL, I'm not gonna be home from work until about midnight board time)


Title: Re: AGGF part 2
Post by: Dsvaun on January 26, 2008, 04:11:58 PM
I'll be on standby as well in case you need any thing.  My coms have been acting up so i may not get anything.  I'll work on it and try to fix it.

(OoC: I'm going somewhere as well, but I'll be back tonight.)


Title: Re: AGGF part 2
Post by: Sume Gai on January 26, 2008, 05:26:08 PM
this is the 008L sorry I took so long to launch I wanted to clean the BHC contact points

Damn It!

he's still alive I don't think my Black Hole Cannon can handle the large piece that still remains.


I guess I have no choice

code "FINAL OPTION"

*opens a small part of the shield and flies in*

DIE; You Bastard!!!!

*triggers the eject as BHE overloads and creates a black hole strong enough to completely destroy the last segment*

*the shield comes up again before the eject pod can escape trapping  it inside the shield*

AAAAAAAAAAAAAAGHHHHHHHHHHHH

*is seriously injured in the blast and barely alive as the Black hole fades*

...


Title: Re: AGGF part 2
Post by: Derek on January 27, 2008, 04:53:45 AM
Well, a little showy, and most definately over dramatic to an extreme even for us, but effective.

....Oh, what the hell am I saying? I want the Med team and cleanup crews out there NOW! Get the Commander, and if anything else even so much as twitches, BURN IT!


Title: Re: AGGF part 2
Post by: Andrew on January 27, 2008, 05:19:22 AM
Yes, Sir.

Get a stretcher, NOW! Make sure Cmdr. Gai is alright.


Title: Re: AGGF part 2
Post by: Tyria on January 27, 2008, 05:43:11 AM
All right, we have scaned the area and there are no traces of Ze-Field, the Giga-chan is now officially dead!!

And also, as there wasn't any part of it remaing, that means there is nothing for me to clean up! Good job everyone! Too bad most of the barrier was gone with the explosion of the BHE, but the DC isn't too mad, since they saw the sacrifice was necessary.


Title: Re: AGGF part 2
Post by: Derek on January 27, 2008, 11:01:42 AM
Now, onto the news that people actually care about. I just talked to the Doc Uzuki. He says that the Commander's condition is stable, but really weak. He's not sure if they're gonna do anything else to have to fix that. Unfortunately, he didn't give me a very big list of the injuries, but rather, chose instead to tell me what WASN'T wrong with him.

"He's alive. That's just about it, for the moment."

He said he'd keep us updated.

On the next order of business, Andrew, how goes the cleanup? How very much nonexistant are we looking at the 008L being, now? And has either 'Vaun or JayBee managed to make it back yet?


Title: Re: AGGF part 2
Post by: Lechise Inohara on January 27, 2008, 11:18:16 AM
I vote that we should make Tyria foot any bills that come out of this fiasco.


Title: Re: AGGF part 2
Post by: Derek on January 27, 2008, 11:33:22 AM
Seconded. Which means we now know who to turn to about that 15K repair estimate.


Title: Re: AGGF part 2
Post by: JayBee on January 27, 2008, 01:16:29 PM
See, this is why I advocated obscene levels of firepower backed up by GanDuro's GigaBlaster and carpet-bombing.

If the chief needs a robot hand, I know a guy that does good work.


Title: Re: AGGF part 2
Post by: Tyria on January 27, 2008, 03:06:16 PM
Hmn...pay all the bills...suddendenly I begin to wonder if Commander Lakmir will put me in the brig for much time if I get back to HQ at this point...maybe he even forgot I shoot his unit full of holes!


Title: Re: AGGF part 2
Post by: Andrew on January 27, 2008, 05:58:41 PM
Cleanup is going ok. The 008L appears to be salvageable, but it will be a long time before it will be useable, if at all. I should mention that I'm no expert and would like a second opinion, though.


Title: Re: AGGF part 2
Post by: Sakura77 on January 27, 2008, 06:13:47 PM
I'll take a look at the 008L and see what we would need, but you're right, it will be a long time before it's operational. If the BHE is gone, I will need some help upgrading it.


Title: Re: AGGF part 2
Post by: Tyria on January 27, 2008, 06:37:03 PM
Hmn...without a BHE, it would be more simple just scrap what parts we can and be done with it. Most of the frame is wrecked or just bent in a strange way that shouldn't be and it is without a engine...I think it's just too much trouble putting it back togheter...not to say that there is aways the threat of the new BHE blowing up on our face, we would need assistance from Dr. Hamil and some other crew from Mao Industries...

If we go to repair it, we can at least do major modifications/customizations, since will be building up entire blocks of it!

Hmn...I could say so, it is a good chance to use the parts of it to make a mk.III...unfortunatelly, mk.III uses a Tronium EO Engine and I belive Tronium is above my material clearence level...so I could only mess around with everything else...I am not banned from getting close to the Gravcon System, am I?


Title: Re: AGGF part 2
Post by: Derek on January 27, 2008, 07:50:15 PM
At this point, I would say a lot of things are above your clearance level, Tyria.

Let's just recover what we can and mothball it, for now. The Commander can decide what we ultimately do with it, when he recovers.

I said when, not if. Even I can be optimistic, dammit.


Title: Re: AGGF part 2
Post by: Andrew on January 27, 2008, 08:55:05 PM
Ianator, Chaostic. Help me get the remains of the 008L into the Hanger.


Title: Re: AGGF part 2
Post by: Sakura77 on January 27, 2008, 10:35:27 PM
I'll contact Mao and see what they recommend but, it's still the Commander's call in the end.


Title: Re: AGGF part 2
Post by: Sume Gai on January 28, 2008, 06:21:06 AM
*is still in critical condition and hasn't shown much improvement*

Doc Uzuki (speaking on my behalf): "Commander Gai made a few arrangements beforehand in case this happened and requested I convey to you some requests"

"first thing, Jaybee and Derek are to decide decide which of them will lead in his absence;

next, Commander Gai requested that he and the 008L's remains be sent to the moon for treatment/repairs. 

Third, The Commander said that he is releasing his private weapons cache into the AGGF; he said it contained A Z Gundam a Hyaku Shiki, a Weltall, the "fully armed" Kriong Monster and a rebuilt ZZ Gundam along with various munitions.

 Lastly Comander Gai requested that you continue to fight Bask in his absence "

 


Title: Re: AGGF part 2
Post by: Derek on January 28, 2008, 09:45:08 AM
Hmm. Alright, thanks Doc.

Alright, I dunno about JayBee, but I believe in making sure everyone is capable of taking responsibility for something, particularly when I can't. So, who wants to help arrange for Gai's transport?

And while I'm on the subject of responsbility, JayBee, I wish to settle the leadership situation like honorable gentlemen. WIth Rock Paper Scissors. Deal?


Title: Re: AGGF part 2
Post by: Sakura77 on January 28, 2008, 09:52:48 AM
Derek, I will tell Mao about repairing the 008L as per the commander's orders.


Title: Re: AGGF part 2
Post by: Derek on January 28, 2008, 12:20:00 PM
Good. If you want to help with the transport arrangements, be my guest.


Title: Re: AGGF part 2
Post by: Dsvaun on January 28, 2008, 03:05:58 PM
Sorry about the silence over the weekend.  I was around, but I was busy so I couldn't report in.

Dammit.  I feel like I've done almost nothing around here besides tinker around with the machines.  Then again it's what I do best.  I might as well make myself usefull and get to work on something.  Maybe on making the FAZZ?  If there is anything important that you need me for, please let me know.


Title: Re: AGGF part 2
Post by: Derek on January 28, 2008, 03:15:13 PM
If it makes you feel any better about anything, 'Vaun, I consider you and Andrew to be the second tier in command right now, behind me and JayBee. I trust you to be there when we do need stuff for tech. And let's face it, right now, you're offiically the only person I DO trust to be in the R&D department, seeing as how Tyria is offically going to have to finish paying that repair bill before I even so much as blink at the thought of pulling the clearance restrictions.

Though, something did come to mind, since you asked. How knowledgable are you at working with Gears?


Title: Re: AGGF part 2
Post by: Dsvaun on January 28, 2008, 03:46:44 PM
Eh....

Where are those from?


Title: Re: AGGF part 2
Post by: Derek on January 28, 2008, 04:05:44 PM
I'll take that as a no, then. No Weltall 2 for us then, I suppose. Oh well.

Xenogears, for the record.


Title: Re: AGGF part 2
Post by: Dsvaun on January 28, 2008, 04:16:15 PM
Ah, I'll try to look into it when I've got time.

(OoC: Haven't played the game yet.  I plan to when I've got time, which judging by the schedule for college, literally won't be until the end of the year.)


Title: Re: AGGF part 2
Post by: Sakura77 on January 28, 2008, 05:46:49 PM
Derek, the new machines have arrived from Mao, and have taken the remains of the 008L. I'll be calibrating the three machines and if anybody wants to use them (mainly the Coustwell and Bellzelute), I will have to orient them on the unique control systems installed.


Title: Re: AGGF part 2
Post by: JayBee on January 28, 2008, 06:56:32 PM
Derek, I don't consider myself much of a leader. I'll save you the "duel" and just cede the position now.


Now then... I want some revenge?
...
Get out of there, Tyria. I didn't mean you.If it wasn't for Bask, we'd've cleaned your mess up before it got quite so out of hand.



Does fully-armed Monster mean what I think it does? If we've got a full stock of reaction warheads for the railguns, it shouldn't be that hard to burn out a few bases.
And reaction warheads are "clean", so there's no radiation to worry about later. Just a smoking glass-lined crater.
...
But that's not really very satisfying when you're looking for an outlet to vent into.

I'm gonna take the Blitz out and see if I can't start some ghost stories. The kind about invisible monsters that maul mechs and then melt away into nothingness.
Don't worry, it's not senseless bloodshed. I'll be ripping heads and limbs off mainly. No point in scaring the shit out of people if they don't get to tell stories later.

Find a small patrol, activate the mirage colloid, maim a mech or 2, then fall back into the forest. Drop some time-delay flares and explosives to make them look the wrong way.
If I see something I can't handle, I'll fade back. The Blitz has a pretty nice sensor suite, so I should see them well before they see me. They'll never even know I was there.

Makes me feel better AND continues the psych warfare we started with the singing death haros. Everybody wins.



Moving out.


Title: Re: AGGF part 2
Post by: Derek on January 28, 2008, 08:21:40 PM
Sounds like a good idea, JayBee. I might have to steal it for a few runs of my own.

Sakura, go ahead and give me the specs on these new units, if possible. I'm thinking about testing one of them myself, but I prefer to have an idea of what I'm doing before I get inside a mech.


Title: Re: AGGF part 2
Post by: Andrew on January 28, 2008, 08:29:49 PM
I'll take that as a no, then. No Weltall 2 for us then, I suppose. Oh well.

It would be extremly dangerous for us to even try, at least for a while. The Weltall 2 was made using Nanomachines, which considering our track record...


Title: Re: AGGF part 2

Hence why I completely threw out the idea the second I heard that no one around had an idea of what end goes where on those things.

Now, we can still definately use Weltall, not stopping that. I plan on taking him out for a test run when I get a few minutes.

I'm going to take out the Z Gundam to see how it feels. I like variable units, and I need a reliable unit for an alternate.

The Coustwell is a close range machine capable of flight and is equipped with a Larseilam Canceller (which we should never have to use due to no one was a Larseilam equipped) more info can be found here: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Coustwell
and :http://srwog.velv.net/og_mecha/coustwell.html

The Bellzelute is similar to the Coustwell except it is a long range designed machine with the Orgone Rifle as it's main weapon (three attack modes), both the Coustwell and Bellzelute have a double cockpit allowing for a pilot and subpilot. Both can be considered "Reals" and additional specs can be found: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Bellzelute
and: http://srwog.velv.net/og_mecha/bellzelute.html

The Cerberus and Garmraid utilize an engine known as the TE (Terminus Energy) Engine which requires an DFC (Direct Feeling Control) Suit to pilot.

Cerberus is more of an traditional long ranged "Real" with few close range weapons and several long ranged weapons. Here is what I have on Cerberus (not much):http://srwog.velv.net/og_mecha/cerberus.html

Garmraid is a close ranged machine, I'd call it a super robot due to it's weight and size are twice the Cerberus's. Here's what info I have: http://srwog.velv.net/og_mecha/garmraid.html

I'm sorry Derek but, I don't have much information about Cerberus and Garmraid (they are SRT MX machines).

Post by: Derek on January 29, 2008, 11:39:50 AM
Hmm. Alright. I think I'll take the Bellzelute. As soon as I can get the opportunity, I'm gonna give both it and Weltall a few test runs.

Oh, my head. How long was I out? Figures what one good shot on the T-Link System can do to your brain...

...What? We already fried Hyper Giga-chan? Awww, I missed the fireworks. Oh well, we'll see what I can do to make up for it later.

The doctor still needs to run some brain scans and make sure all my synapses are firing like they should. I'm not sure how long it'll take, but when I get back I call Coustwell.

Once again, I apologize for not letting anyone know sooner.

tl:dr Long-term internet access: unlikely at best.

Post by: Sakura77 on January 29, 2008, 02:39:43 PM
A little more explanation on the Bellzelute and Coustwell, the Bellzelute is completely shooting based (There are no melee weapons on it) and the Coustwell is mostly close ranged with one or two mid ranged attacks.

Title: Re: AGGF part 2
Post by: JayBee on January 30, 2008, 03:05:03 AM
*wanders back in*
Not ANYMORE there aren't.

That was... fun.

Hid a few smoke generators and jammers over a wide area. Waited for a small patrol to wander by. A little noise to lure them to the center of the dead zone and activate them. Flicker the mirage colloid a few times to leave them with vague impressions of SOMETHING. Not enough that I ever became visible(or what would pass for visible... I dumped a LOT of smoke in the area).
Disable the mirage colloid on JUST the Gleipner as I fire it, ripping the head off one mech. Walked behind another one, ripped it's arm off by hand.
Toy with them a little bit more, listening to the chatter(they turned on external speakers to talk! They totally forgot the laser comms!).
Then went ahead and bashed up the other 2. Faded back under cover, detonated the smoke and jamming devices. Nothing left.

They were crying like little babies.  They punched out and RAN, tripping over their own feet while they screamed for an emergency pickup into their comms.

Took about an hour to finish up.

I nailed three more patrols with similar tactics. 2 unrelated, one a follow-up to the first team. They were a bit bigger, and visibly jumpier, having heard about team 2 and 3 before they made it to the site. Only casualty of the day was when one of them shot his own guy.



And for the final touch...
*grabs a PDA*
I went into town and borrowed a netcafe. After a few relays to ensure I couldn't be traced(reason I was doing it from town in the first place., but you can't be TOO careful), I exploited a hole or two in their computer security.
Read a few personal e-mails(lot less secure than the professional stuff), fired a few of my own off. Spent a bit of time piddling in some chat rooms that're popular with the local enemy base.

Check out the stories being passed around. Some of which I fueled.
Ghost stories apparently spread REALLY fast when there's dismembered mechs lying around. EVERYONE'S dusted their old campfire stories off, with a new and sinister sheen of realism.


Personal favorite flavor(I MAY have encouraged one of these, under the guise of a local townsfolk that's scared as fuck of going out at night...): Young man out on patrol. He's getting married in a month or two.
There's an attack. Most popular version is the zentradi rain of death, but there's a couple of variants. His unit is wiped out.
He survives, but is hideously disfigured and dying from radiation exposure. He works his way back home before he dies.
Depending on version, his home was destroyed in the attack and he finds his fiancee dead/dying, or his fiancee sees him and runs away screaming. He dies on his doorstep, alone.
And now his ghost stalks the machines of war, crushing them, seeking vengeance.



You can get a lot done in 2 days if you're creative. :)

Okay, enough screwing around. Time to get to work, gang. JayBee, I've got a job for you. I need you to head out and scout out Bask's main base at the mining facility. We've taken out pretty much all of his other holdings in this region, so odds are pretty good that he's gonna be either hunkering down or getting ready to bail. Find out which, and feel free to play some more psych warfare with them if you want.

Andrew, get Sakura and the two of you start running inventory. I'm gonna need it for the next roster update.

'Vaun, go ahead and give me an estimate on how long it'd take you to get that FAZZ finished, or any other projects you're working on in your spare time.

Tyria, you stay right where you are. I don't even trust you not to screw up the sim, right now. I'll have the full bill ready for you to pay pretty soon.

Everyone else, business as usual. Feel free to volunteer yourself for something or ask me if I can think of anything for you to do.

Ah, the feelings of being the one in charge. How I have missed you.

All right, chief.
Was already trying to figure out how to further the chaos. Your plan sounds good to me. Just don't make too much of a ruckus until I get back. Aside from not wanting to miss all the fun, I'd like to avoid the chance of being on the inside when they start panicking... or if their superiors manage to convince the grunts that it's enemy action.

Title: Re: AGGF part 2
Post by: JayBee on February 02, 2008, 02:46:44 AM
Chicken.



Well, Bask is pissed. He's told all his troops in the area that they're making a last stand there in the mines. Every-fucking-thing he owns in the area is lined up, just waiting for us.
I'm not gonna bother listing stuff, or counting units.
If it's a mobile suit or a mobile armor, and it's not a one-off model, he has it, and he has lots of it.

If it IS a one-off...
Unless I'm crazy, I think I saw the GP-02. Physalus is waiting for us. Probably loaded with a nuke. If he thinks he can down us in one shot, he'll sacrifice his men to do it.


And he seems to be VERY fond of Big Zam Kai. There was ANOTHER one in the main hanger(how did he build so many so fast?). He's keeping a crew in rotation on it, idling at all times so that it's ready to roll at a moment's notice. Phase shit armor and i-fields both online.
We're gonna have to beat this one in a fair fight it looks like. But there's only one(thank goodness).

WHY DOES HE KEEP BUILDING THESE THINGS?!?!
...
Oh, right. He hates us.


The base is nested in a mountain range, and there's really only one way to approach it without blowing a hole in the range. It's also heavily fortified with anti-aircraft weapons.
So he knows what direction we're coming from. You'll wanna charge in guns blazing, because his guys will fire as soon as they see you.
He HAD booby-trapped the route, but we killed those on the way home. All sneaky-like. They still report as fully-functional, but all they'll do is give us a bit of smoke cover.

There's a good mix of mechs in all of the hangers. So don't expect any real differentiation in the waves. Actually, don't expect waves. I figure he's gonna launch everything at once, and try to drown us with sheer numbers.

And since he's pulled units from all around the area, the base is WAY past capacity. There's a bunch of make-shift shelters dotting the rest of the base, as well as mechs just sitting out in the open.
That's actually gonna work in our favor, for a change.

Anything that's not hardened can be smashed in a surprise attack. That means all the stuff outside the hangers. 
I'm thinking the opening shot should be a YF-21 missile strafe. It's stealthy enough that they should still be surprised when I start unloading micromissiles on as wide an area as possible, even with an aerial approach. That'll lower the odds a bit at near-zero risk to us.

Then I'll circle back, land, jump into the Huckey, and come help with Big Zam Kai and company.
...
Or at least, that's what I'd like to say.

Here's the problem with that.
For all the bluster he's showing, Bask is NOT planning to make this his last stand. He may just think we're lucky, but he's not counting on our luck running out just yet.

I managed to get a data link into the system, and found something interesting while I was poking around... there were some defenses wired up in places there simply shouldn't BE defenses. And a single small, oddly-located mech hanger... it's under the base, and the only exit is right into a mountain.

He's got himself a personal evacuation route. Carved a tunnel from  the command area down to his personal hanger, and another out the hanger, through the mountains, and on to the backside. There's a high-speed aerial mech, custom make, parked in the hanger. The tunnel is essentially one long runway. Well, actually, the power grid implies it's an electromagnetic accelerator that'll shoot him out the back like a bullet. The tunnels and hanger don't exist on anything in the computer, but the mechs and power feeds do. Whoopsie.

The POINT is .... While we're cutting a path through his forces, he's boosting out the rear, and off to regroup in another territory.

After I do my flyby and drop my missiles, I'll probably have our only clean shot at the ass-end of Bask's base until we break his defenses utterly, by which point he'll be long gone.
So... While it pains me to miss the shooting gallery at the front door(I think we ALL know how much I love a good firefight), I'm gonna be otherwise occupied.

After I dump my missiles, I'll gonna jettison the FAST packs, drop some chaff and flares, boost past the back of the base before the AA weapons can figure out what's going on, and start blasting his escape route to hell. 
Dip in the tunnel and storm down it and into the base, smashing anything that gets in the way.

I expect purely AI defenses. No way he's told his troops that he's bailing on them, and planned a 1-man escape route months in advance. But there's also no way he left an undefended back door into his base. There's 7 Virgos in the hanger. Probably deployed out on constant patrol in the tunnel.

Anyways, with luck, Bask won't be in his escape mech yet when I catch up.

If he is... sucks to be him.
*feral grin*

Worse comes to worst, I can always release the limiter again.
I ASSURE you it'll be a last resort of ultimate desperation. But that shithead is NOT getting away. Not this time.
One way or another, he's paying for what he's done.



I'll let Derek awe you with the "ghost" stories.
I assure you they're worth hearing.

Post by: Tyria on February 02, 2008, 04:30:22 AM
Hmn...I wonder if we can't send a Haro of Doom to infiltrate the base's escape route. If we can, we can do a lot of damage to it with it's self-destruction, that should take care of the electromagnetic accelerator.


Title: Re: AGGF part 2
Post by: Derek on February 02, 2008, 04:47:14 AM
For the moment, I'm pretty hesitant to put a concrete date on this one, simply due to the sheer amount of preparations we're gonna need to pull off in order to accomplish it. Sim fights against the BZK, the back door, figuring out scenarios to deal with the GP-02, the list goes on.

Actually, I know full well what my plan is for the Phys. The question is whether or not I could pull it off without getting killed in the process.

Point is, we're gonna need some serious prep time for this one. I don't expect us to be ready to do this for at least a few weeks.

Anyway, I want everyone to start logging in some extra sim hours when they're not on duty, while we start working on this. JayBee, go ahead and start doing what you can to soften them up a bit more. Make a few extra groups of patrols disappear, scare them up by distance sniping a cannon placement or two, just do your usual thing. And while you're at it, see if you can do me the favor of finding out just who's piloting the 02. The chances of Gato getting involved with Bask are in the negatives, which can make my idea both easier and harder at the same time.

Andrew, Sakura, you two start picking mechs out of a hat and start patrolling the rest of the region. Bask's the kind of guy who has no problems leaving scattered pockets of men stranded out in the wilderness, if he finds the time better spent saving his own ass. If you find anything, you have authorization to do what you feel is necessary for the situation. Make them surrender, burn the place to the ground, kill everyone and steal the gear, whatever. It's entirely your call. Try to use different machines as you do, so we can go ahead and get the test data while we're doing it.

'Vaun, you're fine as is. Keep working on whatever you feel takes priority.

Tyria, you're still completely grounded. Next suggestion you make had better be how you intend on paying the bills.

I THINK that covers everybody. While I've got the time, I'm gonna take the Bellzelute for a test run. I might be able to factor it in somehow if all goes well with the tests.

Oh, and before I forget, the ghost story. Let me just say this. Natural fog and a mech designed to be Death incarnate go very well together. Especially when the last thing a unit's camera sees is the scythe lighting up.

All right. You can count on me.
*evil grin*
I'm gonna see about getting some mods made to the Blitz. Nothing major, or even permanent. I just want the anchor and feet to leave more animalistic imprints. I think it's obvious why.

That might be harder.

Ya know... It may be a bootleg Physalis. If he can keep cranking out those modded 'Zams,  a single over-buffed mobile suit shouldn't be an issue, assuming he can get plans. 'S why I was hoping I was crazy and you didn't see it too.
I don't really wanna think about the possibility of Bask(or anyone!) mass-producing the 02. It may not have as much weaponry as some of the other units we've seen, but... just the sheer amount of armor on it makes it a seriously bad mofo. Those mother-loving Zams are giving me enough nightmares. I prefer to believe he's spent most of his resources trying to make his ultimate super weapon pay off.

And if they have plans, they can start modding them. Merciful Althena, please don't let them have plans.


I'd suggest taking the Stampede in right behind me and using that ship-cracker cannon to rape the thing right as it comes out the door, but the AA guns will probably eat anyone following me for breakfast.
'Sides, the Stampede's not even remotely suitable for this op with all that crap bolted on. 'S just too slow.
And if you eject the FAST packs... it's a VF-1 with no guns. Barring the sudden acquisition of a Ball, we'd be hard-pressed to find a worse mech for this operation.

It was a nice wish for a few seconds, though.

...


Maybe long-range bombardment with the Monster? It's built to do what the GP-02 does, and probably does it a good bit better. But if the bad guys over-run it, the crew is screwed. Lot of armor, but no defensive weapons.
If we have reaction warheads for the railguns, that makes it a very appealing softener, though. Lob a few in, then swap mechs for something a bit nimbler and join the fray.


I'm gonna rig a few sim variations on the back door. Tending towards worst-case scenarios.
Given it's a stupid stunt, I wanna be damn sure I've got it down. 'Specially since I'm getting out of practice with ye olde Omega One.

I think I can swing it, provided all 7 Virgos aren't at the front gate as I come down. Even then, I have some plans.



Hey.... you think a speedy capture of Bask and exposure of his escape might demoralize his troops?
...
Nah. They probably expect it anyways.






Tyria, the problem with delivering a Haro to the escape tunnel is getting it TO the escape tunnel. As near as I can tell, Bask is the only one who can open the access from inside the base. And once I'm at the outside exit, I may as well start blasting lasers into the walls.

I'll start doing patrols soon, I recommend that we have someone pilot the X Divider and use it along with my Avalanche to wipe out a large chunk right after or before the inital attack (Avalanche has as big as a firing and effect range is the twin buster rifle.)


Title: Re: AGGF part 2
Post by: Derek on February 02, 2008, 10:44:32 AM
Er...what would happen if I said: I don't?

I'd never let you anywhere near a lab or even so much as the simulator ever again while I had the authority to?

JayBee doesn't blame you for what happened to the Commander, but I'm not so quick to forgive something quite so boneheaded. One Ohshit is worth about twelve Attaboys, you know. And I personally think the whole thing could have been avoided if you hadn't been so eager to have your mad scientist title in the first place, so I'm not very happy with you to start with.

So, yeah. You're paying the bills for base repair at the very LEAST, seeing as how the Commander was the only one I know who had the superpower of being able to make money magically appear when he needed it to, and he's not here right now. Unless someone else has about twenty-five large lying around and would like to volunteer it, you and I are the only ones who it falls upon to cover these repairs. And I'm not the one who caused the accident to start with.

I found the full invoice on my desk when I got back. $25,762 for the full repairs to the base, and that's just a start for the entire cost of this fiasco.

Since you don't seem to be so keen about actually owning up to this one, I'll make this official. Consider yourself on indefinate suspension until I see some effort to make up for this whole mess.

And if it makes you feel any better, which it probably won't, I would be just as much of a hardass about this if it was anyone else. 'Vaun, JayBee, even myself. It doesn't matter. You screw up, you take responsibility for it. That's how I work. If you don't like it, then you really should have thought about it before Gai nearly killed himself taking down your pet monster.

And in other news, the Bellzelute is pretty fun to use, though I think I need to calibrate the sights a bit before I try sniping again. More on that later, as I need to go get a little sleep.

Tyria, at this point as long as it doesn't involve any experiments or screwing us ten times over we don't care how you get the money.  Hack into the enemy's system and route a few funds, go out into the street and pimp yourself.  We honestly don't care/want to know how you do it.  Just do it.  It's not like you're allowed to do much around the base.

I Found a couple of things. I heard some rumors about unsued weapon stockpiles in a few places around the world. I also think I know where I can find Masaki. I've been doing some radar checks and he shows up every once in a while. I was doing some calculations and I think I know where he will show up next.

Masaki is the living embodiment of the Heisenberg uncertainty principle.
It's impossible to know where he is and where he's going at the same time, and observing his motion or position will alter his motion/position.

Good luck, though.




In unrelated news....
I have a plan to soften the base up a bit.
Some of you might remember that in the old days of the UN's rule over the Sol system, there was a large orbital defense satellite network set up around Earth.
After the UN fell from power, the satellite network became neglected and fell into disrepair. There's no longer an active data link, most of the surviving satellites no longer function properly, and if someone attacked, our collective ass would be grass.

HOWEVER...
With a bit of help from one of my UNS colleagues, I managed to restore an uplink to part of the network. I have control of THREE  particle beam cannons currently in geosynchronous orbit within striking distance of Bask's mine.

MUWAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
...
'Scuse me, I'm starting to sound like Tyria now.

Cracking the Big Zam Kai or excessive hammering of a hardened target isn't an option, because I want a pseudo-random attack pattern. Make it LOOK like a severe hardware malfunction that Bask just HAPPENED to be the target of. They've been known to lock onto non-hostile facilities and ships before when the systems failed, though it's pretty uncommon, and they have a watchdog circuit that activates a self-destruct charge if they go totally bonkers. USUALLY before they start firing, but... once or twice it didn't kick in for a little bit. And since we're ordering it through a proper uplink, the watchdog will give us a bit of leeway in the bombardment. We'll get a bit of target practice before it shuts us down permanently. Not for long, but we can probably bathe the base in pulses of relativistic protons for a minute or two.


I wouldn't count on this uplink remaining stable. The hardware's in pretty rough shape, and I think I'll lose communications in the next few days.


I can initiate Operation Angel's Paints at any moment. Just waiting for authorization.





I'm still not sure about the GP02's pilot or legitimacy.
Working on it, but it's a riddle wrapped in a mystery inside an enigma.

Alright. Rain hot firey death upon our enemies in the name of justice and/or badassery.

Just don't hit the 02, if you can. If things go as well as I'd like them to, really, I want to see if we can make the Phys do what it does best. Get stolen by the enemy.

Okie-dokie.
I can plot things to avoid cracking that hanger. Like I said, it only LOOKS like a random bombardment.

*keys in a few corrections to the targeting pattern*

I like how you think.



*starts the Minmay 2012 Farewell Tour CD*
Operation Angel's Paints begins...
*pokes a little red button*
NOW!

The rain is BROUGHT.

*watches mobile suits flung about like ragdolls from the explosions*

We have a hanger failure! Sweet! Wasn't really expecting it, but it was worth a shot or two.

*adjusts fire pattern to hit the hanger remains*

Direct hit on Big Zam Kai! I repeat, direct hit on Big Zam Kai!

*the satellites detonate*
Damn watchdog circuit.

Now we wait for the smoke to clear and the dust to settle..


*A few minutes pass. The CD is removed, under threat of death*


All right. Spy satellite feed coming in.
The main hanger was destroyed. That was the one housing BZK.
About 2/3s of the exposed mechs were damaged beyond repair, including ones that were outright vaporized. Based on hanger size, we smashed about a third of the hangered mechs. Based on rubble, the best mechs are the hangered ones.
Odds are still very much against us, but.... not near so badly.

And for the question on everyone's mind... Big Zam Kai is heavily damaged, but not destroyed.  I repeat, Big Zam Kai is wounded!

One leg is a twisted wreck, there's scorching on the hull, and it looks to have lost about half the phase shit armor on the upper hull, as well as ALL the PS on the damaged leg. The upper missile launcher ports are fused. But it's still functional.
I don't think they have replacement phase shift armor on-hand. So our job just got a lot easier. BZK has a weak point now. Two, actually.




Thak you, thank you. Your applause is too kind.

I met with those girls, they are gundam pilots who deserted Bask, they mentioned that the base is going to receive reinforcements in a week. Apparently there will be 500 Daggers, 50 Qubeley MK IIs, 5 a Azieru, and 125 Aile Windams. The biggest problem will be the a Azierus which are almost as tough as BZKs.

*Steals the Minmay CD*

My collection is now complete.

Good job, mon. That just made our lives sixteen times easier. This'll probably step up our game plan by a few days, easy. Next job I have for you is to see what you can do about shutting down that back door from the outside. This one's not as big a priority as it sounds, as, honestly, Bask will probably find some way to escape whether or not he has to do it on foot through the mountains, but I'd love to give him a hard time as he tries.

I'm gonna head out with 'Scythe in a few, to check the place out while there's still some serious confusion from the attack. Once that dies down, the security is probably gonna tighten up severely. Better to head in now, while I have the chance.

Oh, and I'm borrowing the CD, JayBee. I'll give it back later.

Post by: JayBee on February 04, 2008, 01:04:39 AM
Hmmm....


I've been going over the shots I got from the camsat before I killed the uplink.

Looks like there's about 1500 mechs left outside that are operable or can be repaired. Possibly adjusted upwards if something survived but was buried under parts(they were dense enough that it's possible).
Pretty much all cannon-fodder. Leos, Zakus, GINNs, Balls(how the hell did a platoon of Balls even get formed?), that sort of garbage.

Not sure about hanger mech count. There's so much rubble, and so much was vaporized, that it's hard to say how densely packed they are.

BTW.... I was thinking, and the implication of the Zam taking hits from a particle cannon is that we burned out the I-field generator. I doubt they have a spare generator that large.
No phase shit, no I-field, a limp...
This may be a cakewalk.


On the downside...
You remember we got a half-complete Gundam Alex from these monkeys WAY back in October?

Well.... while I was running the analysis, the computer found parts to an Alex in the rubble. Actually, it found parts to a pair of them.
Recommend you assume the enemy can mass-produce the Alex.

On the upside, unless they reworked it internally, the Alex is "just" a high-performance Mobile Suit. It doesn't have a Psycommu/Psychoframe/Zero System/T-Link/BCS/WTF.
And I doubt they'd go to the effort of redesigning it and not even add funnels.


Title: Re: AGGF part 2
Post by: Derek on February 04, 2008, 03:55:07 AM
Well, you just gave me an idea for something to have 'Vaun do in his spare time.

I got a few nice little bits of info out of this trip. First one being that the 02 isn't manned, but it's not a Doll, either. They plugged an AI computer into the cockpit, and that's it. Bask must have wanted it as a disposable bomb, judging from the complete lack of effort he made towards redesigning it as an actual combat machine like he tried with the Sazabi. And yeah, I said bomb. It's definately armed with the nuke option.

Another fun thing I picked up is the location of that Messala from our last major open-field battle a few months back. He's stuck in one of the collapsed hangars, but I can say for certain that they're all interconnected as part of the base. I doubt they have the room to move him any closer to a working exit, but expect to see the guy sometime after the fighting starts.

The other kinds of units inside the place are all higher level stuff like Gaplants and Virgos and crap, easily over a thousand in number. I did indeed see a bunch of Alex models in there, about twenty or so total. Unlike the 02, though, these did appear to be mass-produced Doll types. They didn't even really bother with a decent paint job for them. They basically look like someone took the Gundam Mk.II's paint job and slapped it on Alex. Really tacky.

That's about all I gleamed out of this trip, but it does give us the info we needed as to whether or not we could pull a Gato and swipe Phys. Anything you guys want to commentate on?


Title: Re: AGGF part 2
Post by: JayBee on February 04, 2008, 05:26:46 AM
I like the idea of a gundamjack. GP-02 is one of the toughest-looking gundams in history, and one of the few that looks bad-ass even in SD form.
...
What?


Could we upload a virus? Make it just drop the bazooka and walk off the battlefield when they deploy it? It'd be as hilarious as Dendoh's first sortie. I can just imagine the look on Bask's face.



Also, I only collapsed one hanger... so we know EXACTLY where the Messala is.

If I'd known it was in there, I'd've launched a few more shots that way. But I was more worried about the Zam, and it was the only unit I could really pick out amid the dust and the shrapnel.





I really don't see a way to close the back door without getting someone to the far side of the base to blast it in. The mountain range makes it difficult to do that during the fight. It's not on the base computer network. I think you'd have to get a hard link in the escape-bay hanger to access the systems.
And closing it in advance means he knows we know, unless we can make it look REALLY accidental.

I'm HOPING the satellite bombardment didn't tip our hand.
I tried for a system failure, and wasted more shots than I really wanted on outside-the-base fire to make it look like it.
But it's hard to make a Ripley look accidental. Especially a Ripley carpet-bomb.  It's not IMPOSSIBLE, mind you. Just very hard. Especially with particle cannons. 
Space debris is easier in a system as cluttered as Sol. Shit happens. Sometimes it happens on your house. We don't exactly have the equipment to start nudging zentradi relics from Space War 1 out of orbit, though.


Pity I didn't have enough firepower to just carve through the mountain and vape the command center. To heck with subtle(if you can call Angel's Paints subtle...).
Bask was smart to bury it deep in the mines. He's a clever bastard, I'll give him that much.





Ah well... I gotta run.
Me and Jennifer have a running contest at the firing range. I need to get things set up for today's event. 

We're doing trickshooting with carbines.
No, we're not shooting at each other. Does this LOOK like Buffalo Bill's Wild West Show to you?


I STILL can't figure out how she wound up in medical and not a combat role, though. I understand liking firearms, but Jenn's got an innate talent with pretty much any ranged implement of death, damage, or destruction that we've found so far, from bows to bazookas.
Yes, we've tested rocket launchers.

All right, here is the money. I sold some old crap I had in my roon along the Seilbine-kai, BTW, you may be hapy to know that the DC fined me by 30% of the value of all lost equipament instead of the full price, so I managed to pay it all up just by selling my Seilbine-Kai...

Now let me see...what unit I will use...


Title: Re: AGGF part 2
Post by: Derek on February 07, 2008, 09:16:40 AM
Your Selbine's over in the side hangar, if you want to use that, along with all your other stuff. You're welcome for the money.

What, did you actually think I was just gonna leave you high and dry? I'm a mercenary, with a good few years of experience and cash reserve built up, and a bill like this would have hurt MY wallet. I didn't actually expect you to be able to pay it, just to put some effort into trying. The point was to teach you a lesson about responsibility.

And it's always fun to imitate the DC. All I have to do is sound completely self-righteous and/or egomaniacal and I get people fooled every time.

Oh, and keep the extra three grand or so you made from the sale. You may need it., because your NEXT job is to go deal with the personel costs and fallout of losing half our technician staff in that little incident. And I'm NOT helping you out on that one.

Oh, hey. I just realized something. JayBee, 'Vaun, gimme a confirmation on this one for me.

Since I bought it from Tyria, that technically makes the Selbine mine, doesn't it? So, any use that it gets as a part of AGGF operations is based solely on my decision to donate it for the cause, right?

No, I handed you a real repair bill which I had recieved from the guys who fixed our base, which I then handed to you. I then rerouted your sales to the DC all back around to myself and bought your Selbine and all your other stuff from you, giving you money out of my pocket, which you then handed back to me to pay off the bill. So, basically, you paid for the bill in assets, rather than cash. I then gave you back everything but the Selbine and told you to keep the extra money you made from the sale, but the Selbine itself is still officially under my name.

Really, you oughta pay a little more attention to things. Oh, and how's all that personel work coming along? I haven't seen any letters being mailed out, yet.

JayBee, how fast can you get from one side of the mountain to the other with the flying Hucky?
Honestly... I've got no idea. I doubt very fast, though. It's got lousy aerodynamics, and no real primary thruster.

I'd REALLY rather overfly their AA defenses in something with a bit of stealth capacity, anyways. The Hucky has a radar cross-section more closely resembling a battleship than a bumblebee.

Hmmm... I have an idea!
I assume the goal is to get some heavy artillery down or near the rat hole in back. Honestly, it's something I wanted to do, but couldn't figure a way to make it work. The Stampede isn't exactly stealthy, and it was my best shot.

It'd be a little jury-rigged, but we could probably strap a gun on top of the YF-21 and carry it over that way. The plane body will be between ground observation posts and the gun, so it doesn't matter if the mount is stealthed.
Given more time, I could rig a stealthed gun shroud to mount under the plane(a project I may undertake in the future), but... we're on a schedule.

When I drop down the other side of the mountain, I can eject the gun, switch to battroid mode, and grab it out of the air. It's actually a distressingly common step in VF transformations. If you equip the gunpods, the YF-21 has to do it too.
The point is that the hooks are already in the transformation sequence.
Loan me the graviton launcher and I can get heavy artillery to the other side fast.




If you're plan involves something else, let me know. I'll see what I can work out.


Title: Re: AGGF part 2

Oh, I was just gonna see if you'd be willing to set up shop with the G-Impact Cannon and blow the exit skyhigh as soon as it opened, then make your way back around to join the rest of us in fighting everything else.

Your idea works too, now that I think about it.

They say great minds think alike.

Trick'll be getting back in through the anti-aircraft weapons without the element of surprise.

I guess I'll just have to take enough of them out in the carpet-bombing that it's not an issue.
No worries, then.

*fires a memo off to the maintenance crew*
Now to the sims!
Need to get good at popping AA turrets fast.

I don't intend to have them on sensors for more than a few seconds(under the logic that if I can't see them, they can't see me), so I gotta be GOOOOD.
But I think it's already established that I'm GOOOOOD, so I don't anticipate any problems.

...

But if you guys could take time out from mowing through the endless sea of cannon fodder to take out some of the surviving air defenses, I'd appreciate it. Every gun I don't have to dodge is one less chance for them to get lucky.

That's scary enough to almost make sense. But I'll reserve my judgement until we hear what the info is. Go ahead, Chaostic.

Thanks guys I thought I was a goner. Now for my report where to begin? You already know I was in a civilian hospital for treatment while I was there I encountered some interesting individuals through them i learned about a research base under the city.

After a quick trek in the sewers I discovered the base had been recently abandoned, while I was worry about why I pressed on anyway. So I made my way to the central databank, after b a bit of hacking I was shocked to discover that a Masouki "on par with Cybuster" has been captured operantly there planing on a invasion of La Gias when they find a way to get there


Other plans I came across list a bases where there mass producing newtypes and something called Project Idealants.

Oh yeah the base was abandoned because a virus toke over the automated defenses of the base as long as the defenses stay off we are free to come and go as we please  the  is a large cache of experimental weaponry there.


Title: Re: AGGF part 2
Post by: Sakura77 on February 12, 2008, 02:38:52 PM
... MASS PRODUCTION OF NEWTYPES! Those asses! (Dents a 5 inch bulkhead in anger) No one's lives should be toyed like that!


Title: Re: AGGF part 2
Post by: JayBee on February 12, 2008, 02:45:31 PM
Crap... aren't artificial newtypes usually completely batshit insane too?



As far as that base goes.... I assume we have a way to disable those virus-fragged automated systems? Given the base's owners couldn't handle them, I don't exactly want to go exploring and have a laser turret leap out at me.


Title: Re: AGGF part 2
Post by: Derek on February 12, 2008, 03:59:41 PM
We'll investigate this one in due time. For now, let's worry about Bask.

Since we're running out of time, I'm gonna say hell with it and go for our usual option. Which is to say, we throw as much wrath on that fucking base as we possibly can and deal with the cleanup later.

JayBee, you've got authorization to drop whatever overpowered weapons you want on the place. Everyone else hits from whatever sides they want to come at from with everything we've got. Bask expects us to mow through his cannon fodder, so it'd be a shame to disappoint him.

I'm gonna head out in a few, and take care of hijacking the GP-02 ahead of time. I'll do my own custom reprogramming job, bust out with it in the middle of the fight, and laugh in Bask's face over his own comm before I make off with it onto the Durageiz.

If no one has any arguments, We'll drop this on him around, say, 2200 Pantheon Time tomorrow. If anyone does have something to address, please feel free to do so now.


Title: Re: AGGF part 2
Post by: Sakura77 on February 12, 2008, 04:59:55 PM
I need to know if the Coustwell or Bellzelute are going to be used in the attack so I can make sure everything is good to go. Also I'm cutting the safety limits on Avalanche for the battle so expect a good chunk of the cannon fodder to be fried quickly when I fire.


Title: Re: AGGF part 2
Post by: Derek on February 12, 2008, 05:14:58 PM
I might use the Bellzelute, but odds are more decent that I'm either going to stick with 'Scythe once I get back to the Durageiz with the 02, or maybe open up some Shishio Blade whoopass with Shining Gundam, depending on how the battle's going when I bring it back. Might as well get it ready anyway. If nothing else, we can probably get some decent data out of it.

....Actually, I just had an idea that goes beyond crazy. Hey JayBee, talk your girlfriend into a few basic target practice sims using the Bellze. Depending on how well she does, we might be able to have her play sniper from the Durageiz with it during the battle. She doesn't have to actually fly around or worry about any of the rest of it if all she's doing is using the gun.

Yeah.... we've used some BIG guns...
I assume he means "For the love of all that's holy, unholy, and that fuzzy gray area inbetween, don't stick her in a mech!"

*opens the record*
Interesting reading... especially the psych profile. Explains her uncanny profeciency with weaponry, too.
'S a pretty rough story.

Glad I never took her out in the sim.
Was thinkin' about it, if only because we're running out of man-portable weapons we haven't played with.



Guess we'll leave well enough alone and stick to the small stuff. No need to dredge the past up.

Maybe I'll talk her into trying out melee for variety instead.





Oh, Chaostic...
On an entirely unrelated note, did you get a copy of their current  La Gias research? Or just references to it?

I know a guy who knows a guy who's got an interest in interdimensional travel, if you know what I mean.

He's obsessed with the fold generator, which is one of the last pieces of protoculture tech we don't understand very well.
We know it punches holes in space and maintains a bubble of something resembling our own universe while sidestepping it through another one, but not really a lot beyond that.

We can reproduce the fold generator. We can miniaturize it. We can even rip holes into fold space and build barrier systems around the holes*. But much of the how and why is still a question mark.
The zentradi just used it. They don't know any more than we do about the device.


Now here's where things get interesting...
Transportation to and from La Gias sounds like it involves something similar to a fold effect, in my opinion. Sure it's magically-fueled, but...
Their research could shed new light on the entire subject.
We might gain some insight into other universes that exist alongside ours, if they've made it far enough to look around. Hell, it may even be possible to tune a fold generator to get to another universe.
You can probably see where this is going.

So long story short... If my hunch is right, I know a way to get to La Gias WITHOUT relying on Masaki's ability to get interdimensionally lost. We could be there in months.
Or decades. The fold generator hasn't exactly been willing to offer up it's secrets yet.





*I wonder how the guys on the other side feel about that...
No one thought to check if the protodevlin even live in fold space, so obviously they didn't ask how our tech affected their universe... and now they're gone, and they didn't exactly leave a forwarding address.
Dammit, there was SCIENCE to be done and the guys in charge couldn't think about anything more important than saving all life in our universe!


Title: Re: AGGF part 2
Post by: Derek on February 12, 2008, 09:10:08 PM
Interesting. We'll check all of this out once we're done stomping a mudhole in Bask's face. I'm gonna head out now, since nothing else seems to need addressing from my end. JayBee, you're in charge till the battle kicks up. Just avoid shooting the Phys when you guys start things off and we'll be just fine.

ZBW-00 Skychaser, taking off. See you guys when the shooting starts.

.....Oh, and someone do me a favor and look into the sim usage. My log records are showing some extra hours using the Bellze that I don't remember pulling. See if that's a glitch, would you guys? Preciate it.


Title: Re: AGGF part 2
Post by: JayBee on February 12, 2008, 09:28:43 PM
Roger that. No shooting the big scary MS thing with the huge shield.

I'll try to keep my missile locks clean.
I'll cave in the tunnel and be right back to help with the main force.

Gonna try and do a series of shots down the visible length of the tube. Make a BIG cave-in. Don't want Bask cleaning it up before we're ready for him.
With luck(Good? Bad? Depends on the PoV) I'll have line of sight on a Virgo or 2, and I can reduce his drone count. Should slow his cleanup efforts.


Title: Re: AGGF part 2
Post by: Sakura77 on February 13, 2008, 05:42:24 PM
I'm ready and I'll only use avalanche when there is a clean shot due to how unstable it is without the safety limits active. See you soon since I am staying outside the base while the safety limits are off (I don't want to end up like Tyria and pay for repairs)

Mason! Good to see you again! Green looks good on the Excalibur!
You've been briefed on the situation? Good, then I don't have to explain as much!

The south exit was... ever so slightly better defended...  than I expected from the data.
Those Virgos I counted turned out to have about... a dozen more of them and a matching set of Tauruses.
And there's some AA lasers over WHOA! over here I wasn't expecting!

I kinda emptied my missiles on the overflight. And drained the graviton launcher collapsing the YIPE! cave but the Virgos were in side alcoves, and used their shields to hold it open *KLANG!* open while  the Tauruses launched... So if you guys HIYA! can lend a hand... I'd really appreciate it!

*slices a Virgo... riding a flightmode Taurus?*
Okay, I'm pretty sure that's NOT a standard AI routine...

One down....
*the Taurus transforms and fires back*
BARRIER PUNCH!
...
Damn, missed!

*another Taurus flies by and... unleashes a missile cloud?*
The HELL?!?! These things are CUSTOMIZED?!

*a pair of Virgos set up a crossfire with an AA turret*
HAHA! Barrier disks for the w-ARGH!
IT FIRED A FRAG GRENADE AT ME! THE SUMBITCH VIRGOS HAVE GRENADE LAUNCHERS IN THEIR CHESTS!

*flips to GERWALK, starts lifting off*
FUCK!
*dives right as an AA turret locks on and fires, crashing into the ground and folding back into battroid mode*

Seriously, you guys! Get me some air support back here! NOW!
Limiter released. But  *fwoosh* it doesn't really improve my odds that much if I can't  get some air. Just means I take more of these bastards with me.


EAT ELECTRIC DEATH!

LEGGO! HEY! STUPID DRONE!

YOU'RE GONNA HI-*FWAM!*
*ksshhhhh*


Title: Re: AGGF part 2
Post by: JayBee on February 14, 2008, 01:17:54 AM
*over an external speaker*
Mason! Thank god you guys are here!

Sorry for the scare. One of those Tauruses tried a kamikaze run on me.
Broke my transmitter but I think I'm all right for the most part.
Managed to use my engines to slow it enough that I wasn't smashed against the rocks.

These things are too smart.... too adaptable...
I think Bask may've used bioneural circuits in them. Probably figured if they saw action, everything'd gone wrong anyways, so what was one more problem.
So welcome to the party, but watch your ass. They're a LOT smarter than normal drones. And those customized Tauruses can pull some killer moves.


If you've got the AA turrets down...
*blasts off into the air*
Hello, boys!

*lases a Taurus while rolling out of the way of a Virgo's cannon blast*
It's playtime!

Thanks guys... I owe ya.

*reactivates limiter*
Didn't have to push things TOO hard this time. Guess I'll avoid the hospital stay.

Now then... where to next?
"Well, we lost contact with Chaostic a little while ago."
Better check on that, then.

Lead the way, Mason.
"Ummm, shouldn't you head back?"
What, over this little bang-up? I've STARTED fights in worse shape before.

Don't worry about me.


Besides, how much could be left out front at this point anyways?
*boosts over the mountains, sees the Big Zam Kai dragging some rubble that got tangled in it's ankle and kicking the R-Gun around like a soccer ball*
Oh.
Well, I guess that DOES make for an interesting challenge.
...
I ASSUME we dropped a hanger on it, and it just took it most of the fight to dig it's way out of the rubble?


Ah well... it's still limping, and I don't see an I-field or phase shift in effect.
Let's do it to it.

*drops down, lasers flashing, dodging through beam cannon fire*
*flips to battroid, lands on the shell*
*bangs on the lid with a mech fist*

Hey! You guys mind standing down before we have to vaporize you?

Good to hear you're all right.
Don't guess you see anything you can steal real quick? We could use a hand out here. The BZK is eating a lot of damage for something that's had two hangers dropped on it AND sat through an orbital bombardment in one week.

*adjusts visual sensors*
What IS that wreckage the K was kicking around, anyways? I THOUGHT it was the R-Gun, but if that's back at home...
I need to keep better tabs on the mech roster.

How can the main cannon target that fast?!?!?!
...
*flips on the laser comm during a brief lull*
Hey, anyone got some missiles left? I've got an idea...


Next time he tries that, lob some explosives right up the cannon.
The window of opportunity is pretty short, but the payoff is gonna be big.

As for me...
I'm the bait.

LIMITER OFF!
*dashes in, dodges through a hail of beam fire, and hacks away at the legs, then ducks back out*

Gimme your best shot!


*leaps up, kicks off the front panel while slashing at the exposed cannons and firing lasers at the targeting sensors*

C'mon! I'm point blank and you STILL can't hit me? Would it help if I stood still for you?

*stops, fires a sustained burst of laser fire at a damaged knee, leaps away as some more beam fire lances out*

Is that the best you can do?

*ducks behind a pile of debris, adjusts sensors*
Let's see if he'll take the bait...
Just wait for the hatch to release...
NOW!
*thrusts upwards at max power as the cannon decimates the debris*
*missiles from one of the VF-19s sail into the closing cannon port, and the BZK erupts into a fireball*

All right. I think that does it.
I'm buying the drinks tonight.

I've found Bask; the bastard thought he could sneak out if he pretended to be a surrendering pilot.

he seemed to forget that I know his voice far too well.

there is still a pocket of resistance in area D7 (looks like 20-30 units have turned a ruined hanger in to an underground bunker)

I don't have enough energy to fire my Grav Buster again and my missiles are depleted (I'm returning to the Hiryu for a quick resupply Jaybee if you can still fight go back and switch mechs (your YF-21 looks pretty beat-up)

Hey, guys. Sorry JayBee, but I think the region of La Meina is actually gonna want this mine back when we leave.

In the meantime, would either the Hiryu or the Durageiz mind please clearing a place for me to land? Bellze's stabilizer is completely shot, and I'm not sure how much longer the flight system is going to be operating. And the sooner I can fix my plane, the better.

Here's some options: 1.Impale him on the Heat Horn 2.Tie him to a rocket and fire him at the sun (no space suit) 3.Have a dominatrix come and "play" with him for a while until we know everything that he knows (I know several)


Title: Re: AGGF part 2
Post by: Sume Gai on February 14, 2008, 10:38:48 PM
I don't think the third option will do any good at all

these are the options we have so far

1. Tie him to the heat horn

2. have him collect money from the G-Impact Cannon

3. launch him into space (sans normal suit) on a missile

NEW:
4. put him in metal orb filled with Haros of doom and play hacky-sack/soccer with our mechs

NEW
5. tie him to the wing of a Valkyrie and practice combat manuvers.

Here's one. Forget the whole torture/execution angle and just send him back to the enemy as the complete and utter failure he is. If Asia and Zechs were both punished just for losing fights against us, imagine the price of failure for losing control of an entire region.

Giant stone effegies of yourself in a mountainside are not works of art, they are signs of severe egomania.

In fact, ANY sort of insignia on that grand a scale serves only to stroke your own sense of self-importance, especially compared to easier to do things, such as just sitting there with your personal sidearm and firing the beam option into the side of a building until there's a letter D permanently burnt into or through the wall. It's all a matter of relativity and scale.

Having said that, none of you saw me within fifty feet of that wall.

I prefer to call them self-portraits.

Besides, I'd think my egomania was already well-established before I started carving mountains.

TO THE BAR!





And once we've sobered back up, I'll give you Hawks the tour of the place. It's a little different than what you're used to, but not in a bad way.
I mean, let's be honest here. Our battleship is a stolen derelict named after a video game and a battery. We're about as un-military as you can get and still be a cohesive combat force.

Sakura repairs on the Exia are free of charge but it may take some time to replace the Avalance parts

as for Masaki as long as he doesn't get into the armory I think he'll be OK

(although he is Masaki, so we can't be too sure)


Title: Re: AGGF part 2
Post by: JayBee on February 16, 2008, 02:19:21 AM
All right, Hawks.... that's it for orientation, I think.
Any questions?

"You didn't cover the chain of command, sir. How will our rank translate to the AGGF? "

Ummm.... it won't, actually.  We don't place much stock in rank here. You can go ahead and drop the sir. I'm just Jaybee.
Sume Gai's the boss as far as day-to-day operations are concerned, but for the most part we're equals. 

If you come up with an idea, bounce it off us.
If you think we're being complete dumbfucks, tell us so. In those terms, even. We'll consider any issues you raise.

If someone says jump, you don't have to ask how high.
And you're free to just say you can't jump, and we'll make other plans. 
In fact, most operations are on a volunteer basis. We just jump because we can.

"So there's no chain of command? And you're free to blow off any operation you don't like? You guys are dumbfucks. *snicker*"

Well, I can't say that we aren't, really. You've seen how we run our missions. From both sides of the gun. It's marginally-controlled  chaos most of the time.

If you want a laugh, ask someone about my recon mission . Don't worry, they'll know which one you mean.
It was only the one time that went bad, but they're NEVER gonna let me forget it.


Anyways, the system's worked pretty well so far. You can't deny our results.
It seems that guts, creativity, and some REALLY BIG GUNS can make up for an overwhelmingly superior enemy force.
Most of us don't have the proper mindset for a military chain of command anyways. If we ran this like an army, everyone would've long since deserted.


Look at it from the other side. You've got a good degree of autonomy. Unless you do something stupid like create a homicidal alien nanomachine colony bent on destroying civilization, you can more or less do as you please.
We'd really like to see you be more than just a pilot. If you have an engineering project you'd like to see done, a plan you'd like to enact, or just wanna try out a new mech, we're gonna encourage you to go through with it. This includes custom tuning and mods to your mecha.

While we're on the subject of mods, you mgiht want to get some melee weapons added to your VFs. We see a lot of close-quarters action around here.
If I were you, I'd hit the sim and try out a few different mechs. See what tickles your fancy.


Anyways, if you DO create a homicidal alien nanomachine colony bent on destroying civilization, you'll probably see some restrictions start showing up
ESPECIALLY if you don't own up to your mistakes and keep trying to repeat them, despite nearly getting us all killed the first time, being told that you're not allowed to continue these experiments under any circumstances, and getting locked out of the lab for the good of humanity. Ask Tyria over there.


"So basically, if you aren't a dumbfuck, you won't be treated like a dumbfuck?"

Exactly!

"I like this gig already."

Good to hear, mister Nefaln. Good to hear.
Have you gotten your daily allotment of "dumbfuck" out of your system yet?

"Ya know, I think I have."

All right.

Any other questions?
*a chorus of negative responses*

Good. Then let's get the tour started.
You've already seen the bar, so we'll use it as the tour's end point.

I know it is dangerous to tamper with things that not even the Earogaters do and should I come down to experiment with that kind of tech again, I'll keep it within it's original use parameters, it is proven it work fine, as long you don't push it to do something it isn't supposed to!!

Post by: JayBee on February 16, 2008, 04:56:09 AM
Damn... I kinda wanted to snipe a few of those haros, but I'm busy.I was saving the armory for another day anyways.

Ah well, I'm sure you can handle it, chief.




Next stop on the tour... the hanger. Your home away from your quarters, which are your home away from home.

We've got anything you can think of in here, and a few things you can't. Sadly, we're short on manpower, so a lot of these beauties sit idle most of the time.  Such a shame to have a Grungust and not be using it.

We've got in-hanger and on-launchpad loading facilities, so you're covered in either situation.
Watch out for the missile loader, though. It's a bit of a relic, and jams up occasionally.


There's the mechanics over there. We've got someone knowledgeable about darn near everything somewhere in there.
Occasionally you'll see some of the med crew down here too: We've got a unit with some organic parts in it.

You'll probably want to know the VF guys best, since they'll be the ones patching your rides up after you bust some heads.
But it can't hurt to meet and greet with everyone. Never know when you might need a hand tuning a beam saber or stopping a tronium engine from going super-critical.

Anyways, these guys are all pretty good at mods and such too. If they can interface a QRau cannon with a semi-organic mech powered by the pliot's spirit, they can do just about anything.

So whatever projects you have in mind, we have someone that you can ask for a hand.



And since you'll wanna get to know these guys, they'll be coming with us to the bar. Spaeking of which... let's knock off for today.

I've talked to Ring and she said that due to the damage to the Bellzelute, they're just going to upgrade it now instead of repairing it (too much trouble). The Garmraid is just going to be repaired for now since they don't have enough combat data is suggest a upgrade. Due to the fact that Exia is under repairs I would like to use Cerberus if you don't have a problem with that sir.

1963, but I've been in here since last night, taking my time. I wasn't aware my personal combat training was getting attention from other people, though. I found a box of the little bastards in Tyria's lab and figured it'd be a good way to clear my head after the other day. Didn't think anyone else would mind, considering the state of the armory anyway.

Oh, hey Sakura. Yeah, sorry about Bellze. I, uh, wasn't expecting her to still have that QRau. My fault, I'm aware. But hey, at least it's getting some better armor, right?

*rolls up to the armory door on the Blowsperior, wearing a suit of body armor and carrying the SAL-9 in right hand*
So.... anyone mind if I introduce the Haros to some good ol'-fashioned 80's style motorbike action? No? Okay.
*guns the throttle and rolls in before anyone can object*

Hello, Haro!
*blasts one with a laser*

*rolls along, picking a Haro off here and there*

Hey, I think I've managed to get them annoyed. I'm starting to see groups. Good, that means I can try this software mod.

*fires a series of 5 blasts in rapid succession, drifts around a corner, rips through a pack of 3, hits a dead-end*

"8-kill combo*
Aww man... lame.

*turns around to see a 10-haro swarm*

Aww, yeah...
*fires some lasers, boosts into the air, transforms the bike to powered armor mode, slashes 3 haros on the way down, spins around, and thrusts the right blade through another while slashing the last with the left arm*
 
Gotta run... keep the combo rolling...

*jogs along, blasting haros*

Heh.... not exactly mint condition anymore. But nothing a little work won't fix.

*stumbles into a BIG Haro cloud*
Oooooohhhh...


*leaps in, slashing like mad, kicking off Haros to gain airtime*
*glances to the left, fires boosters, lands on a crate stack. The chest panels flip open, exposing the micromissile launcers underneath*
HARO GENKI NAI!
*a cloud of micromissiles rips out, decimating the Haro swarm*
*leaps down, and cleaves the last surviving Haro  in two*

*watches the next cloud turn a corner*

Hmmm, I might should get out of here. Wouldn't be pretty if I got caught between two of those with no missiles.

*flips back to motorbike mode, and guns it for the exit, blasting anything in the way with the laser pistol*

*slides out the door, slams it shut, listens to the sound as the nearest pursuing Haros impact it at high velocity and shatter*

"17-kill combo."

All right, I think I'm good for a while.
*removes helmet*

Computer, results?

"Total kills: 1207.
Itano Circus kills: 45.

*takes a bow*
Thank you, thank you.


Sume Gai, I think you're gettin' a little slow. Better ask Leo to install a speed booster in there.
Or are we supposed to cut you some slack just because you're only carrying a knife and your robofists?


Title: Re: AGGF part 2
Post by: Sume Gai on February 17, 2008, 02:52:42 AM
actually they started running after I got one or two so it was hard to combo

and some one must have added ALOT of new Haros in (there were only 3,000 before me and Derek went in now there are around 50,000)

so if we alter your score to the relative number of targets you have 73 kills then since you were in there alot less time (about 1/10 the time Derek and I spent) you have 730 kills AND don't forget i could add a missile and gun use penalty as well (I'll be nice this time)

now if you want to see if I've gotten slow during my absence you could try me in the sim.  I'll even use a valkyrie, just be warned I practiced against a mutual relation while I was on the moon; and she actually lost a wing during a fight.

PS my Will Blade is actually a katana

Post by: JayBee on February 17, 2008, 04:01:09 AM
I was just doing a little friendly heckling.

And I actually WAS careful where I did my death blossom.
I was in an area full of largely non-flammable/toxic/uberdeath materials.


Ya know, if the haros are multiplying...
We need to get people in there to cut them down ASAP.
We also need to find Tyria and extract payment. But that can come later.



Our objective shouldn't actually be to kill all the haros. That's unfeasable at this point, and even one leftover could mean we do the same thing again over and over and over. Besides, they're multiplying too fast for that.

Our objective is the case of EMP devices here in the back. Most of our weapon cases are EMP-shielded, and all the gear I consider worth keeping is hardened on top of it. The HAROS, however, aren't very sturdy devices, and aren't in sealed weapons cases(if they WERE, we wouldn't have this problem).

So we head to the back, pop open the case, scatter EMP devices across the armory, and get the hell out of there while the Haros fry.

Everyone ready?

*slashes a haro, grabs the EMP case*

Just great.... they've escaped from the armory.

*activates a few EMP devices, throws them around the armory*
Well, first things first. We can at least reclaim a secure position.

*rides out, a cloud of raging haros in hot pursuit*

Door secure!

FWWMP!
*silence*
*opens door*

THE ARMORY IS SECURE! I REPEAT: THE ARMORY IS SECURE!

Now we just have to figure out how the hell we're gonna reclaim the REST of the base. For now, we need to set up a command post.

*fires up the base-wide intercom*
Anyone that's not armed, get your ass to the armory NOW!  You will be issued weaponry or defended by those that know how to shoot.
If you ARE armed, shoot any Haro you see, and escort any unarmed personnel to the armory!

I repeat: All personnel, fall back to the armory!

*fires a salvo of lasers down the hallway*

All right.... I'm headed out for search and rescue.  We need someone to round up supplies. We're good on guns and ammo, but we'll need food and water. And some computing power would be nice.
And I'm betting good money we'll need medical equipment before this is over.

We also need someone to start rounding up personnel vehicles, so more of us can do search and rescue.

...
 
Hawks, how do you feel about driving down hallways at unsafe speeds with guns blazing while under fire from self-replicating death machines in vehicles flooded with the screams of passengers terrified as much of your driving as the war around them?
...
Good to see the Focker school of driving is still alive in the UNS. Find some jeeps and start bringing people and supplies here. And make sure your passengers use their seatbelts.

Welcome to your first operation as a soldier for the AGGF.
I promise it'll be something more meaningful than a lab experiment gone awry next time, and that we won't be hostages in our own base.

Now move it!

All right, I am joining the hunt...by the way, try to get one of those Haros relativelly intact...NO I AM NOT GOING TO RESEARCH IT! Just try to take it down with one shoot, so the outer shell and some components are fairly itnact, so I can trace the pieces back to where they were.

I want to take a look and see from where the hell they came from, I know you guys were hijacking some of my old defect crates, no problem with that, but I think one of you must have either opoened a prototype crate/tampered and screwd them up on a way it shouldn't be. You know, I didn't give serious firepower and free-action for a very good reason.

now I'm glad i kept this

*pulls out "Haro-Dar"

I don't know who made this and why but I should be able to track down most of the rouge haros with it.

if anyone else wants one there is a box in my office

now then
EQUIP!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

...bzzzzt...

Commander Gai Tyria just finished analyzing the haro I caught

 the good news is that we don't have to destroy all the haros just there leader.

the bad news is the leader of the haros is a parting gift from Giga-chan it seems we missed one of the silver ones

*Walks out of one of the dorm rooms after blasting all the Haros around Andrew.*
.......
Okay, I have no idea what the hell is up with the Haros, but I know in some small way this is Tyria's fault.  Damn it.  I take one small nap and I wake up with 10 haros singing.  I knew Tyria had something to do with it after the one I..uh..accidently stepped on turned into three from the scrap.  Looks like I made it in time since theres a huge swarm heading this way.  We can't hold this area we'll have to fall back.  But just in case you want to do some damage *tosses him a full-auto shotgun and some clips* I brought you a late christmas present.  Don't worry I've got my own.  Let's go.

I've discovered something; each horde has only a few members capable of building new units. Go for the red ones first

vaun, Andrew move towards warehouse 3

*slides the Blowsperior around a corner and comes to a stop right in front of warehouse 3*


All right, if this is all we gotta do, then let's just smash the head and be done with it.

*switches to powered armor, opens door*
...
*looks up... and up... and up*
"Haro genki! Haro genki!"

Yeah, fuck that.
*switches back to motorbike*


Consider warehouse 3 a lost cause. It's occupied by a 50' haro that's dropping a more or less constant stream of normal-sized ones.
Don't enter without heavy artillery.
I'm gonna go see about getting our Giganscudo up and running.

Huh. Odd, I've been using the beam option on my ZB for most of this trip.

*Tags one with it*

....Killed it easy. Maybe it's standard issue beams that aren't working? I cranked the power on this gun pretty far when I first made it, so I could just be punching through whatever they've got.

.......Hey JayBee, wait up. I want to see how Alex is doing. And remind me, once we're done with that thing, to use it on Tyria.

But that's their problem.

*blasts a few haros, stashes the Blowsperior in Giganscudo's storage slot, and starts it booting*

Flashy.

Hey, do we have any reaction warheads left, at the moment? I get this feeling like the best way to deal with cleaning up this entire mess is to abandon the base and glass it from a distance, preferably with Tyria still on the ground.

how bout we just take the remains of warehouse three
throw it near the remains of Mt. Jaybee I

That works, I guess. I'm gonna go do a sweep and see if any of the leaders are still functioning in any way--

I just had a thought. Chaostic, did you say you took one of the Haros to TYRIA for analysis?

JayBee, get a shotgun. Andrew, get the Caster out. #9 shell. We're checking Tyria's lab.

Thank god I got rid of the ones in the hanger. None of the mechs got damaged or used as parts for the haros. My rifle is trashed and my right arm is quite tired.


Title: Re: AGGF part 2
Post by: Tyria on February 17, 2008, 04:46:41 PM
That's just a regular Haro.


By the way, taking out the leader won't stop them...or rather, that Haro wan't the leader...

Check for a regular Haro with Zeon markings, that is the real leader. I can produly say that this mess isn't my fault, I will explain once we roast up that Zeonic-Haro.

I will shut down the base's computer, that should be able to just let the real Leader to act (he is using our computer to coordinate their attacks, he used his access to our Haro of Doom regular defensive grid), all Haros will be stationary and will only answer to it on a 5m radius, that shall help a little.

Anyone with equipament, stay on lookout for short-range radio transmissions, that is where the leader is!


Title: Re: AGGF part 2

I see so the Bal-Haro is a fake and a decoy then? that's a relief.

by the way I hope you don't mind Tyria but, I borrowed one of those Ice guns from your lab.


Title: Re: AGGF part 2
Post by: Tyria on February 17, 2008, 05:10:55 PM
Since you are alive to say that, no problem...I think...

Good. I'll re-start part of the base systems and check the Haro grid to see if there isn't any other irregularities like that one.

Now, on the history of how the hell this happened. Let's just say that someone tought that it would be fun if their target practice started acting like teams, beign more of a chalenge and etc...so he linked up one defective Haro of Doom to the defense grid, the problem if that prototype wasn't actually defective, but I tought it wasn't a good idea, since it was way too much independent, more suited to infiltration and murder than torture device. Now, couple that with some tech idiot that put a Megirot-spawned Haro on our armory as Haro of Doom failed prototype instead of a secure container on the lab to proceed for proper disposal and you see the mess that happened.

The Haro ended linking up with the rest of the crate stored there of replacement Haros INCLUDING the MSH, that began to replicate itself, making those dammed miniaturizated recycler red Haros that ended up converting some of the stored arms into further Haro material thus making up a horde that threatned to swallow up the whole world, just be glad that Giga-chan wasn't around to really command them...at least, the good news is...IT WASN'T MY FAULT THIS TIME! Blame the tech and the one who did a unauthorizated modification to the defensive grid.

So, everybody gather up the big haro and all red haro pieces you can find, put them on the secured containers and gather on Mt. JayBee to BH them.


Title: Re: AGGF part 2
Post by: Derek on February 17, 2008, 05:12:22 PM
Alright, ya know what, I'll settle this for real.

Everyone get out of the base, I'm just gonna use Phys and glass this place. That'll fix all our problems. Except for one.

Tyria, just stay RIGHT THERE. That'll fix the last problem.


Title: Re: AGGF part 2
Post by: Tyria on February 17, 2008, 05:34:27 PM
Dammit...when the Haros got to the hangar, my Seilbine was beign pryed open for system rapairs...the Haros ate most components...at least now we don't have to repair it, because doing that would be very neat to building it up from zero...

I suggest eveybody that was having units beign repaired uppon the time of the invasion that take a look if theyd din't eat anything.

Just give the gun for a quick check to make sure it won't blow your hand away and you can have it for use, since it's made with AGGF's founds, so it isn't actually mine.

Start rewriting them. This isn't your homework. Dogs or Haros or giant robots have no bearing on whether or not you turn the damn things in.

*Giganscudo tromps around the base, glancing around in a somewhat panicked manner, finally finding a jeep and dashing in front of it*

NEFALN! Oh god am I glad to see you!

"Sir... I mean Mister McQuade.... why are you still stomping around the base in that monstrosity?"

Funny story that... while we were storming around earlier, I kinda got swarmed by Haros. They smashed my radio, and I got a few jammed in my hatch while I was blasting 'em. I CAN'T GET IT OPEN FROM INSIDE AND THERE'S NO ONE IN THE HANGER! HELP ME!

"Ummm, okay..."

Oh, thank god...

"By the way... Am I hallucinating, or did our base just get taken over by an army of rabid children's toys?"

Roughly speaking, yes it did. Not exactly our proudest moment.

I assure you it's NOT a common occurrence, and that we've taken a lot more bases than we've lost.
Actually, the only base we've lost was due to an accident involving a dimensional rift, a mech-eating monster from God knows where, some bootleg nukes full of cotton candy, and a REALLY BIG GUN. I gather it still glows in the dark.

"Cotton candy?... wait, I don't want to know. *sigh* What the hell sort of unit have I gotten myself into?"

One of the oddest in the galaxy, Nefaln. And one of the most interesting.

Don't worry. We'll find something a bit more dignified for our next operation. I promise.


Now... let me park this thing in the hanger, and we can hit the bar to celebrate our continued ownership of our base.
We'll worry about doing some actual work tomorrow.

"Yeah.... I could use a drink or ten right now."

You guys drive like Focker, you drink like Focker... do you fly like Focker?

"If you mean while drunk... only the once."

That sounds like a story. Tell me about it in the bar.  I'll meet you there after I get out of this mech.


Title: Re: AGGF part 2

Derek I'm raising Tyria's clearance to level two (mostly standard tech and materials, nothing that can grow or think for itself).

Title: Re: AGGF part 2
Post by: Derek on February 18, 2008, 04:45:35 PM
Case-by-case basis with full reports of what you're planning, using, and trying to make happen before I even CONSIDER letting you do them. I'm not going to challenge your clearance level being raised up since you actually did what I asked you to, albeit with some resistance, but I'll be DAMNED if you're not on probation. Both for the Giga-whatever AND the near Aliens-esque situation with the Haros.

If those things had started bursting from people's chests, I would have gone through with evacing the base and using Phys on it.


Title: Re: AGGF part 2
Post by: Tyria on February 18, 2008, 04:54:09 PM
Look, I fully take responsability for the Giga incident, I did a very rash thing and pushed technology in a way it wasn't meant to be, with disastrous results, not like I had a manual or something like that to know it would happen and while I think Rebi Tora may be cute, I doubt that seducing her would give me specks on Ze-Field, but I refuse to acknowledge any blame on the Haro thing.

That was fault of the tech that handled the disposal of that Haro and lack of common sense by someone who tampered with our defensive grid for their sport.


Title: Re: AGGF part 2
Post by: Derek on February 18, 2008, 05:10:28 PM
So you say. Until something catastrophic enough to actually top the Giga incident happens and ISN'T your doing, I'm offiically blaming you first and foremost for all large-scale crisis situations that occur at our bases. Particularly for two reasons at this point.

One, they were YOUR Haros to begin with.

And Two, you somehow managed to use the confusion to get away with using your lab for analyzing one of the bloody things, which you were still unauthorized to do at the time. Which, I should mention, turned up the results that those things were a result of the Giga. Unless you have a clever story to explain why YOUR tests showed that, of course.


Title: Re: AGGF part 2
Post by: Tyria on February 18, 2008, 05:32:31 PM
One: They were the Haros we use for standard base defence (something has to patrol our ventilation ducts) )and torture. If you can't even see that, it's your problem, because as any unit on the hangar, if someone play with it the wrong way, bad things happen. As I told before, I provide Haros for training and other things, BUT you people must use the only HAROS I GIVE! NO TAKING FROM THE LAB BECAUSE YOU TOUGHT IT WOULD BE FUN TO PAINT IT IN ZEON COLLOURS AND SHOOT IT! I am not sure who took it and placed a self-suficient Haro for assassination on the network that the main computer uses to coordinate them and set US AS IT'S TARGET! That Haro was made to hack into systems and use them to accomplish his mission. As I said before it is a prototype that I tought better not test and was partly disasembled on a corner of the lab.
Tought luck that we had that undisposed MSH there, since they are a copy from the original Haro of Doom we use and it was open to any command (since Giga-chan isn't around anymore), our security grid got it's signal as a regular Haro and Zeon-Haro recruited it to it's efforts.

Two:It was a emergency situation and I did what I had to do.
Good story or not that's it, you are free to punish me as you see fit for that. As for how I discovered some Haros were a result from Giga well...I don't know how you make your Haros (if you ever do), but mine don't SHATTER in crystal-like substance when shoot...and they don't replicate theirselves using nearby material...no tests needed there...


Title: Re: AGGF part 2
Post by: Derek on February 18, 2008, 05:48:05 PM
You know what the funniest part is, about this whole thing?

If you had stopped for a second and thought about it, you would have realized that I've been purposely egging you on for the last hour now, just to see your reactions. Freaking out, getting defensive, and making a point to explain every little thing as not your fault seem to be chief among them.

Thanks for that little insight into how your mind works. Your punishment for using the lab is to go help with cleaning up what's left of Warehouse 3. Chaostic can help you out, since he was the one who let you in there to start with.


Title: Re: AGGF part 2
Post by: Tyria on February 18, 2008, 06:00:48 PM
Dammit...I explained it to not be my fault!!

Why the hell did I do that...oh yeah, because it isn't!

Look, just belive what the hell you want, this case is closed and if you want to punish me for doing something to try get the situation back in hand, fine, you have your right to be paranoid (because if almost getting on my lab, guns blazing just because I took a regular Haro to find what the hell was happening just about defines it).

As the Bastard Aerogater From Hell is confirmed to still exist in some form, I hereby request that the next research project embarked upon be a zefield particle detector.

I'd like our next warning to be a nice, normal, civilized alert siren instead of waiting until we get to the Giant Centipede/HaroStar/Zonder/Devil Gundam stage to find out.



And if it turns out that Tyria's using zonder metal, machine cells, Zefield crystal, DG cells, or any similarly infectious and self-restoring tech in any other experiments ...
Well, we'll burn that bridge when we get there.





As far as drills go, I think a standard evacuation drill should cover most problems.
Run a few variants for different scenarios(total evac and retreat to a handful of preselected secure areas such as the armory).

I'm more concerned about supplies.  We don't seem to have a lot of well-stocked fallback points. I'd like to see some stand-alone computers and ration cases stocked in the armory and the repair bay. The main hanger is too hard to secure.
Central command is reasonably well-fortified, but it doesn't have the resources to be sustainable in a siege, or the space to be a viable evacuation point.



I'd also like to see emergency firearm cases installed in all major corridors. In the event of another crisis, it'd be nice to know that anyone  that wasn't carrying a piece when the excrement hit the air circulation unit isn't completely rectally violated. If you know what I mean.

we could always just use the Ignite parts as a unmanned fighter


anyway I found Dan the tech that started the haro mess not long ago, well it looks like he knew what would happen infact he wanted it to happen the way it did.

Your most likely wondering why well he was running a smuggling operation right under our noses but Bask being his best costumer caused his profits to in his own words "drop like a rock off a mountain" he decided that he take on some other types of jobs one was to rescue or kill Bask. Thats when he got the idea for the haro incident knowing that the blame would fall on Tyria he could trigger it kill Bask and get out of the base while we where non the wiser.

Though it bothers me the he confessed so quickly theres something odd about it thats for sure

Yeah yeah...but how many people you know are certificated nearly-world destroyers? It takes a lot of effor to make it that far and still live to brag about, so I will brag for all it's worth!!

And, I already got permissiom to make the Haro of Doom mk.II, as long I keep in mind the operational restrictions (it will only activate inside a cell).

And for the Imperial March, if only the idea is good enought to scare your own allies, imagine the prisoners? Besides, this is personal too...and someone has to make the tech spill everything...waaahahahaha (More Imperial March plays)

By the way, the Haro of Doom mk.II is half-way finished, but I have to ask permission to use a component. Remember that the Haro is for torture purposes only and it has no type of weapon if the use of the component is granted, I want to use a small-range T-LINK SYSTEM receiver and transmiter (max range 2.7m).

KEEP IN MIND ONCE AGAIN THAT THE HARO WILL ONLY WORK ON THE CELL AND WITH DIRECT PERMISSION FOR ACTIVATION OF SUME GAI AND DEREK BOTH, I AM PLAYING IT SAFE!

Two things.

yes

as for Prana and Aura , They are restricted I'm not too sure what prana can do but I don't yet feel comfortable letting anyone make craft the run on life energy. As for Aura I think it's pretty dangerous  to be building mechs that can cross dimensions


Title: Re: AGGF part 2
Post by: Tyria on February 21, 2008, 12:51:58 PM
Well...Aura can be dangerous, that all depends on the pilot. Feed it lot's of bad aura and you will have a calamity as for In comparison to it, Prana is pretty harmless. But, with our current technology, I am not even sure we can make something much powerfull right now, I would need a trip to La Gias to get really deep into it. You know, no good Alchemy Academies here on the surface to learn about the stuff. Also, it's not like we have several high-level elemental spirits here to go on making Masoukishin.


Title: Re: AGGF part 2

*comes through with a cart of tools and some boxes*

Hey... I grabbed some weapons lockers earlier. Gonna install one by the bar, one by medical, one outside the hanger, one inside the command post, and I've got 2 more we can stick where you guys see fit.


These are secure lockers. I had them programmed to release if a keycode is input into the network(it can be entered at any terminal on the base), or if the entire network goes down.
You can also unlock individual cases by entering your code directly into the case, or prefixing a case ID to your keycode for a remote release. Case IDs are set up as simple words. Hanger, bar, medic, or comm right now.

Speaking of codes...
*grabs some slips of paper, passes them to Derek and Sume Gai*
I had 3 programmed in, and each of us has one now.

I can add more as necessary. I opted for individual passwords instead of a single code for exactly that reason. The system will log who unlocked the cases, so we have accountability this way.
Just figured I oughta keep it to a minimum for starters.


Honestly, I'd prefer to just leave them unlocked. But we have some people of questionable judgment and/or background, not to mention a consistent infiltration problem, so it seems better to lock them except in emergencies.


Anyways, the case outside the hanger's already in place.


Title: Re: AGGF part 2
Post by: Andrew on February 21, 2008, 08:55:43 PM
I can easily see why we'd need to keep the one at the bar locked. It's just trouble waiting to happen.


Title: Re: AGGF part 2
Post by: Sume Gai on February 21, 2008, 09:46:25 PM
so you put a locker in the OFF-BASE bar?

or has everything gone crazy and a bar been built on-base

I've already installed a weapon locker in the labs (and it's keyed to biometrics) and filled it with weapons made to stop crazy renegade experiments

I thought we put a bar on-base ages ago. Maybe there's just some quantum rift that makes it LOOK on-base.
We had haros in the bar, wherever it is. Our troubles affect the bar. We like the bar. Therefore, the bar gets a gun case.


Title: Re: AGGF part 2
Post by: Sume Gai on February 21, 2008, 11:36:15 PM
how bout we put one in the Sim section

the sims seem to be in use 24-7

and how bout we put the last one in the brig to make sure we don't have to worry about prisoner riots etc.

and I heard we can play hacky-sack tomorrow (Saturday) who's in?


Title: Re: AGGF part 2

Good call on the cases. Dunno why I didn't think of that.

I'll pass on the hacky-sack.


Anyone care what we stick in these things?
I was gonna go for laser pistols. Specifically, whatever we have the most of in the armory.


Title: Re: AGGF part 2
Post by: Derek on February 22, 2008, 12:10:10 AM
We have a bar on-base, last I was aware. I just prefer to go to Angel, nevermind that I have to get in a plane or hovercar and travel a few kilometers to do it.

I suggest both laser and bullet ammunition weapons in each one, and stick a Gallant or two in as well, just to be on the safe side. Also, I think it'd be a good idea to lock the one in Medical and let the Doc have the code for it, just in case any troublesome patients happen to be in there at the time. Not really sure what else to input, since these things don't actually impact me whether they're there or not. One of the fun things about custom weaponry, I suppose. Remind me to show you my Hellfire sometime, if we ever get a few spare buildings and mechs that no one'll miss.

And I'll pass on the hackysack. Honestly, I don't like torture any more than I do executions.

make sure to add a few Grenades and some Assault Rifles.  Grenades for crowd control ARs bacuase lasers just lack that punch

I may need to get bigger boxes. I was thinking emergency armament for people that don't have the good sense to carry sidearms with them, you guys are thinking The Matrix.



I'll see what I can fit.
I'm pretty sure I won't be able to work assault rifles in, though.


Title: Re: AGGF part 2
Post by: Andrew on February 22, 2008, 12:37:20 AM
I'll help you carry and install them. It's just good sense to have a second pair of hands when doing any installation/improvement project.

I don't quite have the reflexes for hackey-sack out of the cockpit, I highly doubt that I'll have them in it.


Title: Re: AGGF part 2
Post by: JayBee on February 22, 2008, 03:20:53 AM
Thanks!

I just finished with the booze locker. Let's swing by medical, then the command post. After that I think I'm gonna call it a day.

As far as medical goes, I'd like to stick THIS locker in the corridor, and I'll place an order for a personal lockbox to hook Doc up with tonight.
If we have problem patients, the portcullis is probably pinned pretty positively. And that long string of alliteration means that the corridor locker should be secure from any loons inside medical, excepting the ones with medical licenses.

I am finished with making the Haro of Doom mk.II.

It is equiped as a standard HOD, but it has a modified T-LINK SYSTEM transmiter and receiver. Just plug the receiver on the prisoner and we can try to mental assault him into revealing us information. You can also try to insert things onto the prisoner's mind, it all depends on the person operating it and the victim's capabilities, so we can be creative with it. I am also formally requesting to make a test with that technician. Of course, we will need someone with TK to make that special system work.

Note: it isn't advisable to use it to interrogate prisoners with TK, Enhanced or high-level New-Type.

"Tears of the Fallen God" right? Thats what you called us back then. I wonder what the others would say if they knew, laugh most likely. Still I owe you for back then so I'll make sure you don't die in whats to come.

The New-Type Project "Angles held in chains" eh? So thats what there calling it well I'll inform the commander of what I learned but first I should at least do a bit more research on the Masouki first.

Let's see its an Ageid... an Ageid! Thats not even blessed by a Saint Grade spirit just how is it on par with Cybuster!? It has to be some kinda joke right? Well I better go now I wasted too much time remanising

oops "Angels held in chains" I mess up with that L&E more often then I like to admit

Thanks guys I thought I was a goner. Now for my report where to begin? You already know I was in a civilian hospital for treatment while I was there I encountered some interesting individuals through them i learned about a research base under the city.

After a quick trek in the sewers I discovered the base had been recently abandoned, while I was worry about why I pressed on anyway. So I made my way to the central databank, after b a bit of hacking I was shocked to discover that a Masouki "on par with Cybuster" has been captured operantly there planing on a invasion of La Gias when they find a way to get there


Other plans I came across list a bases where there mass producing newtypes and something called Project Idealants.

Oh yeah the base was abandoned because a virus toke over the automated defenses of the base as long as the defenses stay off we are free to come and go as we please  the  is a large cache of experimental weaponry there.

things been so busy lately that I hadn't had time to go over that data until recently like the fact like the new cyber new-type augmentation not having any adverser effect on test subjects between the ages of 8 and 15 or that nanotech is being used to "fix" the known side-effects in older subjects

Title: Re: AGGF part 2
Post by: JayBee on February 24, 2008, 01:39:32 AM
*stretches*
Got the last of the weapon lockers installed.
Loaded all the cases with Gallant laser pistols. 8 per case, with 2 spare clips each. There's 4 rifle attachments in each case too.

The brig case also has 2 stunner pistols in it. I don't anticipate them being particularly useful if there's an unruly prisoner, due to the nature of the lock mechanism. I strongly suggest you bring your own stunner to the brig.

I've put a second case on order for the brig, that I intend to throw a dozen stunners into.
It has a fingerprint lock, and I can load up to 24 pairs of hands into it. 
The scanner is on the release handle, so it scans your hand as you open it.


The command case has a pair of shotguns. They replace 2 Gallants. There's also a half-dozen gas grenades in the bottom. But there's nowhere to stick a gas mask, so... throw 'em far.

I've got a second case on order for the comamnd post. This one's gonna be a bit bigger than the rest of the cases. And will have gas masks as well as carbines(laser and bullet both) and an assortment of grenades.


And I gave Doc a stun pistol(he went Hippocratic on me when I tried to pass him a more lethal weapon, but we found a workable compromise) and installed a biometric lock on one of his desk drawers to secure the weapon.
The lock was a tad expensive, but it seemed more reliable than a thumbprint scanner. Hate for him to need access and be up to his elbows in gloves and/or organic material from a patient. This is a good deal more reliable in sub-optimal situations.
I skipped a simple voice lock because A. they're easy to fool, and B. if things get loud, he might not be clear enough on the mic for it to open.


Now then...
Any more emergency procedures to work out?

And has anyone started developing a ze-particle detector?

Maybe when we get a REAL box, it'll be more useful. Can key it for the whole med staff.

After the speech he gave me about "first do no harm"?!?!
More hypocritic than hippocratic.

Anyways, if someone gets a hold of his sword somehow, or he leaves it at home, he's got something to fall back on now.

you seen to GREATLY  underestimate Doc Uzuki's skill

In personal combat I've never beaten him once with or without his sword

Me nether but I'm only a red belt in my style so thats to be expected

we shouldn't worry about Project Idealants for now it seams that its taking place in space so is the the New-Type project out of what from what I discovered gather the only one on this world is the Ageid... and unless it was blessed by a Saint Grade spirit I just don't know how it could match Cybuster... Cyfith!! The Ageid must be blessed by Cyfith that how it can match Cybuster!


Title: Re: AGGF part 2
Post by: Tyria on February 24, 2008, 12:59:48 PM
Hmn...as far as I know, the only way to a Ageid to match Cybaster would be having a really badass pilot...and a complete dork on Cybaster...stupid enough to get his spirit as much disgusted as it takes for it to want to die...

that's because it's not just a Ageid it's the Ageid+ how it got to earth is beyond me


Title: Re: AGGF part 2
Post by: Tyria on February 24, 2008, 04:00:03 PM
Even for a Ageid+...the pilot must have very high prana levels or Cybaster's pilot simply suck...maybe both...
In any case, a great pilot on it isn't a problem, since he will eventually die from radiation exposure that comes from the fuel cells...
Yes, I know...a mad man designed it...and THAT IS COMING FROM ME...so the guy it totally nuts...


Title: Re: AGGF part 2
Post by: Sakura77 on February 24, 2008, 04:36:03 PM
Tyria, could you provide me with some info on what a Ageid+ is and do we have anything that could take it on if we face such a thing?


Title: Re: AGGF part 2
Post by: Tyria on February 24, 2008, 04:55:56 PM
Well...the Ageid a standard humanoid B-Class Mazouki used by the Federation of Bagonia, it is mainly a close-middle range mass-rpoduction attack unit. It's also a bit fast. On the + version, it's medium range weapons performance are better, and it's armor is reinforced with a orihalconium alloy, it's not as good as the Z.O. that the DC used, but it's strong. The main problem with Mazouki in general is that their performance heavily depends on the pilot's prana levels. With high enought prana, the unit can be more than 10 times over their original specs.

The weak point we could explore are the masouki's lack of long range weapons, we could try to snipe at it, but it's speed ranges from medium to insane fast, depending on pilot, so it would take a really good shooter to nail it and posssibly disable it. That is our best option also, due to the fact the mad man who designed it used highly radioactive fuel cells, they emit a radiation so strong that even with all that armor, the pilot still suffers from exposure. It could cause a nasty fallout, especially taking into consideration that mostly of our units armor are nowhere near Orihalconium.

Jaybee I need a high mobility mech any suggestions?
Out of our current collection?
Without knowing your plans, I'd probably take the R-Blade and grab a few guns on the way out. The Kyrios or Shining Gundam might work too.
...
Actually, with your superhuman body, you might be the best pilot we have for the Shining Gundam.

If you're looking for something new... I'm partial to the V2 Gundam. But don't tell anyone I said so.




By the way... how come no one said anything about how dumb it was to give Doc a gun when Derek suggested it, instead of waiting until AFTER I went to the time, effort, and expense to get him one?!?!?! YES, DOC, THIS INCLUDES YOU! DON'T YOU LEAVE YET!
Do you people think I LIKE programming locks? That I do all this just for giggles?
Especially given I spent TWO HOURS reinforcing that desk drawer to make it secure? And the OTHER hour I spent discussing your damned hypocritic oath, Doc. Can't shoot someone with a clean, self-cauterizing laser because it'd HURT them, but you've got no problem slashing them to ribbons with a length of sharpened steel and shattering their bones with your bare hands?

That was a COMPLETE waste of time and resources that would've been better spent elsewhere! ANYWHERE! I could've installed a mouse trap in a room full of hungry feral cats and it would've gone to less waste!

And there's a special palce in Hell reserved for YOU, Derek! You KNEW it was a dumb idea, and LET ME GO THROUGH WITH IT!

Now then... is there anything ELSE I should have known a week ago, BEFORE I installed everything? Are the stunners I put in the brig going to be rendered non-functional due to a harmonic reaction with the forcefield generators? Will the holo-units in the sim area bend lasers and make that case full of Gallants dangerously unpredictable? Are the gas grenades I chose going to be sucked out by an over-spec air circulation systems before they have a chance to affect anyone?
ANYONE? Now's the time to complain, now that I've installed everything!

*stalks off*


Title: Re: AGGF part 2
Post by: Andrew on February 25, 2008, 02:05:44 AM
For what it's worth, I know that the Gallant will work in the holo-sim room, with the program active. That bit of information came during the Haro Infestation.

Post by: Sume Gai on February 25, 2008, 02:33:53 AM
sorry about that Jaybee (I thought you knew before hand) any way we can still make good use of the weapon boxes in med bay

as for the mech I want something air worthy (to fight the Ageid+) so the R-blade or Shining aren't good choices

the Kyrios might do anything else; anyone?


Title: Re: AGGF part 2
Post by: JayBee on February 25, 2008, 03:42:36 AM
Yeah, I've never had much occasion to fight with the Doc.
Anyways, we'll see if we can't rig something USEFUL once I get some more weapons lockers in. May get a sword hanger installed in one for him.


Anyways, if that's the flight plan...forget all that nonsense I just suggested.


*grabs a few disks, heads to the hanger*

C'mon, chief. I'm gonna set you up a profile on the YF-21.
Get me some specs for that new body of yours and we can adjust the limiter threshold accordingly. I'm sure you can pull a lot more G's than us mere mortals. You can probably run fairly close to the limits of the airframe, if I had to venture a guess. Depends on how much of your original equipment is still under that armor shell, I suppose.

I say we wait to hear of Chaostic's report; this possible invasion of La Gias sounds troubling to say the least.

I'm hoping that it's nothing but the idea worries me.


Title: Re: AGGF part 2
Post by: JayBee on February 27, 2008, 12:55:34 AM
Speaking of... I'm gonna head to that abandoned base Chaostic found and have me a look around.

Maybe I'll see something he overlooked.
More importantly, it gets me out doing something besides patrols for a little while.



*flips a disk to Sume Gai*
I've got the YF-21 mostly set up, using that YF-19 flight data you passed me. Why exactly did they take the proto out of mothballs, anyways? The production Excaliburs are better in every way.

Ah well... all that's left on the 21 is for you to spend a little time in the cockpit so you and the BCS can get to know one another. 'S the downside to jacking straight into the machine... it's not really a "pick up and play" sorta deal.
Just tell the techs what you're there for, and they'll show you where to stick the disk and walk you through the final steps.
When you're done, the Omega One's comptuer will recognize you any time you drop the helmet on and reconfigure accordingly.


And on that note...
*revs the Blowsperior*
I'm outta here.


Title: Re: AGGF part 2
Post by: Sume Gai on February 27, 2008, 03:00:31 AM
wow! The BCS may need a lot of focus but it works.

you keep the 21 in top condition; it flew like a dream.


as to why I used the 19 Proto; Milia wouldn't let me fight her Stromvogle in anything but a Valkyrie and it was the only thing Ring had sitting around.  But, hey I took off Milia's wing before it was all over.

by the way here's the data from the test flight, If you think the 21 needs any more ajustment.

Reorganization Man, at your service. Just let me grab my clipboard and I'm ready to go.

You know, I think I've been the one in charge of pretty much all of our various inventory and organization projects over the last few months? Ever since that first one when JayBee blew up HQ's hangar, I've been the guy in charge of making sure we had everything.


Title: Re: AGGF part 2
Post by: JayBee on February 27, 2008, 08:47:27 PM
Congrats on pegging Milia.
Mmmm.... yeah, I got things close. I can make a few minor adjustments, but it's pretty close to optimal right now.


And thank the mechanics for the condition it's in.  
You've seen what I do to the poor thing.



I found some stuff I think might be interesting in that lab.
Looks like they were a lot further on their dimensional transit research than they thought.
The centerpiece of their lab, while an original construction, was quite similar in design to a fold generator.

It wasn't stable, but that was just a matter of time.
Had they not reinvented the wheel, they might've already been in La Gias instead of crushing, disintigrating, maiming, and  otherwise abusing robot drones.
I guess that's an upside to virtually everything with a fold generator being light-years away from Earth. Makes it hard for the crazies to steal one. Or maybe they just didn't realize there's a relation.


I sent the data to my friend of a friend wink nudge.
We'll find out how useful it is in a week or two.

Commander Gai, while you were gone I decided to build a new unit as a welcome home present, you came back earlier than I thought you would, so I wasn't able to give it to you then.  However, I've just finished putting the final touches on it.  Any unit requests and I'll do my best.

So, we can probably expect some weapons of subjegation and genocide, then. Oh, and more giant robot parts. Gears are a fairly customizable lot, though the basic framework of each one makes it pretty exclusive to a particular fighting style, so they're not really pilot-interchangable.

Having said that, I just took Weltall out for a (long overdue) test drive. It's not too bad at all.

*Enters the room*

Ah my apologies for my absences. Now where to began well for starters so far it looks like they can't get there yet but, they already have a contact on the "othe side" and they have found a way to get there by using a experimental teleporter in the Agied+ in possession  to make a gateway. sofar that only managed to hold it open long enough for one or two to get though on the downside Project Idealants has produced a rejected subject who theoretically has has Bioplasma(yes thats what there calling prana) levels much higher then a normal humans

*taps a buttion on the table bringing up a holographic projection*

Thanks to our friend in the governments(spies) we now know the location the testsite was well as its current invasion force consist of 5994 units including the Ageid(staying behind), one bzk(staying), one MAN-003 Patulia, one Sadalahn Class batteship, 3000 moble doll types unit(staying), 500 Aries, 700 Bawoo and the rest seem to be daggers with various packs.

Apparently the "gateway" opens up near a uninhabited island or something like that. By weeks end they plan to add a addition 3000 units infact they starting to mass produce units  like Valsion Kais just so they can move up there timetables.

The Idealant reject will be there in 3 days time if we want to stop them I suggest we attack ether before then or inform Masaki and let him handle things on the La Giars side then we steal the Agied after the first wave crosses. I myself prefer the former less longtrem risk then the latter ether way I think we should try and get help from Masaki .

*turns off the hologram*

you know there is still one thing that bugs me about all this is that I can't find any money trails  no matter where I look its as if their creating the materials for the mechs out of nowhere!

about the new ship how about Razielis(Raziel+Genesis)

Mass-producing Valsion Kai? I think we need to bring some pressure on them before that happens.


Those units are all on THIS side of reality, right? What, if anything,  do they have in La Gias right now?
Do we need to punch through to the other side, or can we deal with them by blasting this end of the portal to kingdom come? 



As far as Jupiter goes... I can call in a favor or two. Probably can't get a proper strike in, but I can certainly get some surveillance.

I think we need to get our rears out into space once we take care of the La Gias situation, though. The enemy is building BZKs unimpeded, and I for one find this an appalling injustice.

that's silly BZK's are great land based MAs but are too heavy/slow for space combat

as I understand they haven't broken through to La Gais but will very soon

Nope. Not a one.
I suck at naming ships.



But you can't deny that, especialyl given our track record lately, it would be incredibly practical to build a BZK in space, then drop it to Earth.
Especially if you can drop, say, a dozen of them at once.


Title: Re: AGGF part 2
Post by: Sume Gai on March 01, 2008, 12:43:08 AM
the resources for that kind of drop are staggering

and if they wanted to use them for drops they wouldn't build them on Jupiter (considering use of fold engines is not allowed within the Earth Sphere); on the moon, maybe...

What would they need to go to Jupiter for?

perhaps...no... that's impossible...

but it's the only explanatoin.

By the Matrix, let me be wrong...

It's something more mundane than I'm thinking, right?
Hell, something exotic and dangerous is fine too. Just... ANYTHING but what I'm thinking.
They're not trying to harness The Power, right?

...

I'm calling some support in now.
There's gonna be a stealth-ed recon vessel defolding near the asteroid belt in the next twelve hours. 2 days from now, it'll be orbiting Jupiter. What the Earth Sphere doesn't know won't hurt it. But what we don't know could prove fatal, and not just to us.


If we're lucky, they just want to construct these things in isolation, and are planning a long-term strike several months from now.
I can handle a bit of wasted good will if it means I get to sleep at night.

If we're NOT lucky...
We need to known NOW. Not when they start attacking.



*grabs the nearest terminal, slaps in a flash drive, loads a Phantom encryption app, and starts typing*
Highest priority, highest security... and send.
...
Damn, but I hate the political terrain right now. If the UNG had any significant power in the Sol system, I could have a small fleet defolding in Jupiter's orbit as soon as we get the recon report back.

As-is... well, we'll burn that bridge when we get there.
Given the threat, I may still be able to get something arranged.




Anyways, hypercomm pulse is en route to Eden.
We should know how screwed we are by wednesday.





Meantime, let's start planning to mess up the guys here on Earth. I'd rather take out an army of Valsion Kais than a single The Power'ed BZK, but we can't do anything about Jupiter right now.

You left him alone?
The man can get lost inside a restroom. I guarantee he's in the armory now. Probably  in a part of the armory that didn't exist until he got lost in it.

Derek, if you are planning to do a big assault use the Brigandi since it has the orgone cloud effect allowing you to teleport. Sir, should I ask Ring if she will allow us to use the Raftclanz considering the fact that it also has the orgone cloud?

I believe JayBee had it right back when he said this:

Masaki is the living embodiment of the Heisenberg uncertainty principle.
It's impossible to know where he is and where he's going at the same time, and observing his motion or position will alter his motion/position.

I'm just gonna search the Armory bit by bit. Someone lock the thing behind me so there's no way he can wander his way out after I've gone in after him.

He doesn't appear to have left the base, at least. The Cybuster is still in the hangar.

Have we closed submissions for the new carrier name yet?
I'd like to submit Charon.

Death's ferryman seems appropriate.



Also:
Apparently the "gateway" opens up near a uninhabited island or something like that. By weeks end they plan to add a addition 3000 units infact they starting to mass produce units  like Valsion Kais just so they can move up there timetables.

The Idealant reject will be there in 3 days time if we want to stop them I suggest we attack ether before then or inform Masaki and let him handle things on the La Giars side then we steal the Agied after the first wave crosses. I myself prefer the former less longtrem risk then the latter ether way I think we should try and get help from Masaki .

Are we seriously just ignoring this? Our window of opportunity is rapidly closing here.

Do we have any information on what path this idealant guy is using?

It's cutting things close, but we could intercept his transport. He's clearly travelling either by air or boat, given he's headed for an island base.
If it's not too heavily-defended, we could scramble the Hawks now and capture him before he reaches his destination.

actually the base designer wasn't very smart

it turns out the power system is located RIGHT below the main hanger (where they happen the store 60% of their units) if we can cause a 'small overload'  in the gate system things should be somewhat easier

as far as the Idealent's route; it looks to be by submarine (not an easy target).

well I guess it's time to talk strategy

I think we'll need to be some what sneaky this time because we want the gate explosion to look like an accident.

I've done my research and they plan to do a gate test this Thursday evening; that is when all hell will break loose.

but first...

I need to sneak a team of three onto the base beforehand to sabotage the gate and a few of the defens...es   we'll do this via a supply transport on Tuesday.  an group of "rouges" after supplies will attack the transport en route and sneak our team aboard; then when the base reacts we'll pull back and leave behind the team.

the group will have identities preprepared and assume assigned roles once on base. one will be a scientist there to observe the gate activation, another will be a mechanic sent to preform basic maintenance and inspection and the third will be a pilot transfered to the base by special command.  the "scientist" will set up the gate to go into a feedback loop when activated (detailed instructions have been prepared); the "mechanic" will remove the safety limits on the bases power core(again Instructions have been prepared) and the "pilot" will double check the number and capabilities.   

now any volunteers?

Post by: Derek on March 02, 2008, 11:16:41 PM
Classy. We've never needed to resort to fake IDs before, usually just me running around in that disguise of one of Bask's forces did the trick.

I'll take the mechanic spot. I don't have the technobabble powers needed to be the scientist, and while I have the bravado to play a casual fighter jock, I'm not really test pilot material. Plus, less people would look at a guy wearing a modified maintainance scan visor if he's actually supposed to be using it to do maintainance.

There's one major problem with using either of those units; if we appear to be a real threat the base's security would be raised and we might be followed after we retreat possibly revealing the AGGF's interest in the "Gate Project"

I decided to use Ginns to make us seem like small time terrorists after supplies.

remember we're attacking a transport not the base itself

Wait...you people said before that the device to open the gate  IS on that Ageid+, right? I mean...it can spread radiation pretty far when blow up...



Title: Re: AGGF part 2
Post by: Sume Gai on March 04, 2008, 11:55:24 AM
No, the gate is a stand alone structure connected to the base's power core; the Ageid+ was developed more to examine La Gais tech than anything else.

after all what's the point of a gate if it can only move one unit.

I'm not even going to try figuring out what you just said, Tyria.

On another note, I'm ready to go, aside from one slight detail. Anyone think a mechanic carrying around a concealed handgun modified enough to take out some kinds of MS by itself would raise any flags? I usually don't have to worry about the ZB setting off anyone's mental alarms, but I'm usually playing a soldier or just not getting spotted.


Title: Re: AGGF part 2
Post by: Tyria on March 04, 2008, 01:24:08 PM
Sorry about that...thinking too loud...
I was thinking about the Ageid+...they can just dimension jump it on a target, set to self-desctruct and spread radiation for some big area (after all, the fuel cells emit way too much radiation).

Hmn...we could try some Haro of Doom connected to external batteries for heavy guns...after all, they use a miniaturizated version of the Mikene eye-beam. I could lift their output limiters and it should work (that's what Giga-chan did with it's own Haro of Doom breed, since they had almost infinite energy resources).

Okay, I'm establishing a new rule for any ideas that someone wants to run by me.

If they contain the words "Haro", "Of", or "Doom" anywhere within three sentences of each other, I'm immediately saying no. Try something original, next time.

....Actually, no. Last time you tried something original, the boss had to blow up the 008L. Stick with Haros.

Coincidentally, I'm amending that new rule. If they words in question are anywhere within FOUR sentences of each other, I'm saying no.

Thankfully Derek, you aren't the one who make the rules AND has the final word on it...and if you are REALLY that bored with my current research, just let me work on more interesting stuff : )

Well...I think we can take some Haro out of storage and empty them with exception of the weapons system...that should enable us to use the rest of the space with batteries. Note that it's purpose is to disable/kill pilot of MS, so we can use it as a heavy weapon aganist security personel.

The size is the same one of a standard Haro that Amuro had.

*skims recon report*
*sighs, looks at second mail*

We should deal with the La Gias issue soon, so we can move onto the next big thing. This report's not making me happy.


There ARE Big Zam Kais near Jupiter.
3 complete, 1 under construction.
They're mining resources from Jupiter's moons and the asteroid belt and shipping them to a massive orbital station for processing and assembly.
They have a large cargo shuttle that's currently being heavily reinforced. It looks like they intend to take this thing down into Jupiter's atmosphere, and it's large enough to carry 4 BZKs.

The reinforcing of the shuttle and completion of the fourth BZK are both expected to be finished in about a month.

It looks like they ARE intending to harness The Power. There's no other explanation for why you'd want to fly a cargo shuttle into Jupiter's atmosphere.


UNSpacy, in an unusual example of clear thinking, views this as a serious threat to the known galaxy.
While I'd like to tell you that a large fleet was folding towards Jupiter as we speak to dump a metric butt-ton of reaction warheads into the station and every related facility in the system... Given the political situation right now, that just ain't happenin'.



What UNS HAS done is formally request the AGGF's assistance in dealing with the issue. That's not really surprising. We're a skilled force with the experience and guns needed to deal with a large problem, we're already aware of the situation, we're in the area, and there's not exactly any love lost between us and anyone else in the Sol system anyways.
What IS surprising is that this is an official UNS request. It's from the top brass, not the Phantoms. For them to buck their own system like that... it's completely unheard of. They're scared, and bureaucrats halfway across the galaxy usually aren't afraid of anything that isn't at their front door. Hell, they didn't even wanna authorize reaction weaponry for the Protodevlin...

Certainly, our current situation makes it difficult to deal with the Jupiter crisis in a timely manner. It'd take us more than a month to get there if we left now, and we'd just run into a shuttle full of The Power'ed mechs.

BUT...
As it happens, the Focker, a Uraga-class stealth carrier, was damaged in a border skirmish and sent back to a colonial port for repairs 6 weeks ago. They're putting the finishing touches on her right now.
She's going to be "stolen by terrorists" some time in the next 4 days. If we accept, the crew will hold it in a safe location until we're ready to strike.

I'm just going to assume we accept the offer and lay out the rest of the details now.


When we're ready, the Focker will defold on the far side of the moon to mask the fold reaction, rapidly descend to Earth, and land in the ocean, all under full stealth.

From there, we run out in our mechs and hop aboard, ride back to orbit, and fold to the asteroid belt. Then crack some skulls.

Simple, right?


As for base defenses...
They have a moderate defense fleet, consisting primarily of zentradi mercs. Good mix of full-size and micloned. 
All male, so there's no crazy special-ops bitches to worry about.

But don't forget that these guys were genetically engineered to be the ultimate soldier. And they were fighting interstellar wars millennia before homo sapiens beat it's first animal to death with a heavy stick.
It's nothing we can't handle, but don't get cocky.

There's 200 mercenary grandes. They're riding classic zentradi mecha. Looks like 60 Regulds, 40 Glaugs, 100 Gnerls. They may look silly, but don't let the Space War holodramas fool you. They're deadly in a dogfight.

There's also 220 micronized zents in human mecha, along with another 130 or so human pilots.
The miclone  and humans are sharing 120 Gelgoog-Js and 110 Gaza-Ds, with 80 Ga-Zowmns and 40 ReGelgs mixed in. It's believed that the zentradi miclones got dibs on the Ga-Zowmns and ReGelgs.

Mech and merc counts are approximate. Lacking direct computer access, the recon team had to estimate.

The station itself is studded with anti-mech weaponry. It's gonna be exciting getting close to it without cover. Recommend you bring your dogfights in close. It's harder for them to blast you if they're worried about hitting their own guys.

And of course, there's Jupiter's gravity well to worry about.


So it's not gonna be a pretty fight. But letting them start pumping mechs full of The Power is gonna be a lot uglier.
...
I'd also really like to convince them once and for all that BZK is NOT a viable superweapon. I mean, it IS, but I'm sick of seeing them. Especially after they actually got one operational last time. Let's try and make this a conclusive and thorough victory, so they're convinced of the need to start in on a NEW superweapon.




And I managed to get the AGGF access to the UNS mech database recently, so I've got some hard info for you.

First, our good ship, the Focker:
http://www.new-un-spacy.com/macross7/uraga-escortbattlecarrier.htm
I'm sorry about the limited specs, but she's classified and I can't talk anyone into giving us the higher security clearance levels. I have personal clearance, but it's tied to a biometric scanner so I can't share.
Rest assured she'll fit us comfortably.


The Zentradi mechs are here, though I'm sure you've seen a few of them in museums before...
http://www.new-un-spacy.com/sdfmacross/sdfmacross-index.html
Sadly, the Regulds are modular. We're not sure how many missile launchers they have  ready to equip, so we're not bothering to differentiate the 3 classes.
The tactical Regulds have a different frame, though. We know they don't have any of those, thank goodness. Recon and ECM capabilities would make things a lot harder for us.


And the mobile suits are here:
http://mahq.net/mecha/gundam/zz/index.htm

Except for Gelgoog-J. It's an older design, and you can find him here:
http://mahq.net/mecha/gundam/0080/ms-14jg.htm



So...
Any questions?

And if they find a chunk of Jupiter-X, they won't even need to visit Jupiter to Power up. BioNet did that back in the day.
Regardless of their primary plan, that would be a crown jewel in their collection.

And I can't figure out why you'd risk a base in the hellish nightmare of the Jupiter system if you can avoid it. You can build GN drives anywhere and the EM interference and collision hazards post by Jupiter and it's moons makes it a very undesirable base.
I'd build my GN drives inside the asteroid belt, personally.




Either way... we've got a ride and reasonable knowledge of their facilities. Whatever their motivation, they still need a royal beat-down.


Oh, and the Focker could also come to our base after splashdown. It'd be a less subtle approach, but it'd make loading our stuff up a lot easier.

(the guy who gave us the four we have said differently)

regardless, we have more pressing needs right now

and we can't fold within the earth-sphere (inside the orbit of the principality) so theres no point to a pick up here....  well I guess we do need to head to space anyway so we'll need a hand getting there

I've pulled all the strings I can and it looks like the White Sands mass driver will be open on Sunday (they'll even let us burrow a Pegasus class to carry supplies to the moon provided we carry some cargo for a friend) I've got crews loading our stuff right now

we can take all our mechs and related supplies, however we can't take all of our personal arms (limit there per person per person)

anything else?

Why not fold from Earth orbit? What the Feds don't know won't hurt them.
Though really, I think the plan was to get past the moon before folding anyways. Folds are about a stealthy as a clown wearing a neon pink jacket and waving road flares, so it's never a good idea to do them in view of... well, anyone if you can help it.

And it's not that I'm averse to a lunar excursion.  I've never actually been to the moon. But borrowing a ship to take us to a ship that can come here seems... redundant?

It does have the advantage of subtlety I suppose. Skipping the high-speed re-entry and lifting from a mass-transport ship makes for a few less question marks on the traffic grid. Provided there's no leaks from our ride(which I assume you've taken care of).



Anyways...
First things first.
We've got the signal, so what's the plan for our portal-happy friends?

well it's really very simple we'll hide off the coast in the Metatron and surface to attack just when things go to hell on base.

as for our on base operatives I'm going send a small boat to an unmonitored shore to pick them up before hand (unless they'd rather steal an enemy machine (for witch they have the codes to change the IFF registration)

Jaybee, Hawks, Tyria, Dsvaun, Ianator, choose a mech and lets go(I'll use the 008X)

PS. Jaybee folds are dangerous in the Earth-sphere because of all the debris floating around (bits of broken colonies junked Mobile units etc.) and the EF really dislikes people coming and going via fold because although they're easy to spot they are hard to track (bureaucratic nonsense.)

Well, folding INTO a debris field is certainly dangerous, but it shouldn't be too hard to fold OUT of one.

Either way... fold from past lunar orbit to avoid detection.

Granted it's a hole that's only exploitable for about a second, and that's immediately after a main gun discharge, but... it's enough.

It also helps that there's only one Valsione, and Luune would strangle you with your own intestines if you stole her mech.

In fact, I just detected--no, make that felt--some tremors from below the surface of the island.

The fact that it completely destroyed Mount JayBee 3 is just an added bonus.

No. Two reasons.

Oh, and before I forget. 'Vaun, come over here when you have a minute or two and help me look this thing over. I might not want the full Valcion, but this thing's easily got some room for modifications on it.

And yes, Tyria. I AM specifically excluding you from this, but not for the reason you may think. I've heard about the GEIM System that originally came on these things. If this one has it, the thing's not active. I don't feel like risking it being turned on, particularly since I'm the actual pilot.

Well, we could always try figuring out how old man Zoldark pulled off the Graviton Wave and the Warp Field. The Kai doesn't quite have the massive energy reserves that the original did, but I imagine that after a few shots of that thing, people wouldn't be lining up to go after me.

Also, if we need any spare DC gear, I brought back those ten Lion F drones for a reason.

......Oh, what the hell. If there's any way we can figure out the upgrades to make it a full Valcion, let's go for it. It wouldn't be the first time I was viewed as a maniac. And with that kind of power on our hands, it would make things a lot easier.

Title: Re: AGGF part 2
Post by: Derek on March 07, 2008, 12:32:09 PM
If I were to take an honest guess, I'd say the two people most likely to have an idea about Val's two special tricks are either Luune, for the obvious reason, and Shuu, also for the obvious reason.

Alder and the DC remnants obviously had the basic specs for the Valcion, yeah, but I get the feeling that they probably wouldn't have passed on making the complete hax of the Warp Field or the absurd power of the Graviton Wave widespread if they had any idea how to impliment them.

Anyway, let me know what you find, 'Vaun. I'm gonna go take a quick nap and doublecheck 'Scythe. If our next trip is into space, I don't want to slouch on the prep for it.

If for no other reason than I don't wanna get splashed if the artificial gravity hiccups.

"I... hadn't thought of that. All right folks! Change of plans!"

You're a good man.

Looking at the GEIM system.  So far it's inactive, but the problem I'm having is figuring out why.  Everything looks like it's in place, but as far as I can tell it's just off.  It looks like there are some components relating to it that are in other parts of the Valsion so it looks like it's gonna be a while before I can figure out whats up.  About the customizations, I am trying to see what we can add but something is strange.  At certain points it looks like the parts have been swapped.  It shouldn't affect normal performance, but from what I've seen this thing isn't like the other mass produced machines.

I wonder if it was built for something else.........Hm?  Oh, never mind what I just said.  Just thinking out loud.  I'll let you know if I find anything else.

Post by: Derek on March 08, 2008, 06:09:48 PM
It would figure that out of all the mechs I could have stolen, I ended up hijacking the interesting one. Life's real funny like that, sometimes.

On another note, I'm starting to get the hang of this space combat thing, but I imagine I'm gonna need some real experience before I can consider myself actually decent at it. Just don't expect me to be the super god of asskickery I usually am during a fight.

I've piloted a shuttle before, but I was relying on someone else to do the actual fighting. It is with that experience in mind that I can safely say that escort missions suck no matter what you're driving.

I dunno, Andrew. If you get spacesick that easily, maybe you should sit this next one out.

(BOOOOM)

*COUGH*HACK*

DAMN, I hope I get hazard pay for this.  Okay, here's my report.  I've got good news, bad news, and crap that'll make you piss yourself.  Good news is the GEIM System is out of commision.  Turns out that the system was built throughout the entire frame of the Valsion, more on why in a minute.  The swapped parts look like they removed the important components to make it look normal to anyone who would work on it after they were done with it. 

Bad news is I think I know what the purpose of this unit was for.  I took a look at the pilot registration to get an idea of who might have been involved in the base.  It gave a few names of what it says are test pilots, thing is a few have no rank.  The names are Angie, Angelina, Angelita... you get the idea.  I think this has to do with the Newtype project that Chaostic mentioned a while ago.  My theory is that they were using this machine to monitor the newtype powers as they developed.  The removal of the equipment was probably an attempt to cover up their work.  Unfortunately, they did such a patch job with it that we'd have to take it apart piece by piece if we wanted to add anything.  They probably wanted to erase the evidence as quick as possible without having to dispose of the Valsion. 

Now comes the part where you'll piss yourself Derek.  I was checking the inside to see what we could do with it when I found what I thought was faulty wiring.  I figured I'd fix it while I look and noticed it was actually a BOMB!!  I took a look around the machine on a hunch and found similar devices placed in vital parts of the machine.  They were all wired to the Valsion's computer so I check it out.  Turns out that if anyone unauthorized to use it happened to pilot it, it was set to self destruct after it was used for a specific time.  I figured I'd deactivate the bombs since they seemed simple enough (having of course noticed the booby trap for the detonation device).  Turns out some sicko booby trapped the booby trap.  Didn't do any damage though since I disconnected it from the bombs, just made a loud bang...a REALLY loud bang, like the I'm-sure-my-ears-are-bleeding bang.  At this point I'm curious as to why they just didn't scrap it instead of going through the trouble of taking out all the parts and rigging it.

Then a message pops up on the screen.  I won't read it out loud in detail since I'm sure the blood will fill up my ears any minute and because of the fact that it was for Derek personally.  Basically it said"I knew you would pick the machine that killed millions of people, blahblahblah, you're evil, you kill puppies for fun, goodbye, Hate, Luna."

.....Okay so it didn't exactly say that, but it was meant for you five seconds before the bombs went off so give me I break.  It's a bit more descriptive than that so feel free to read it.  I'm heading to the doc right now.  No one talk to me right now(mostly because I won't hear you anyway), I'm not in the mood.


Title: Re: AGGF part 2
Post by: Derek on March 10, 2008, 02:01:38 AM
Hmm....Lemme take a look.....

.......Ah. Ahah. That's one I haven't seen in awhile.

The good news is, I can tell you with complete certainty that this one here wasn't the work of Blue Luna. The fact that Rena doesn't believe in using cheap tricks like a rigged mech was my first clue. She might not play nice, but she definately plays fair, with a pretty set formula for our battles taken straight out of The Rulebook That Cleaves Evil. Me, her, and a moonlit night are all she needs.

The bad news is, the fact that this happened reveals two things. One, someone is aware that she and I have had at least one encounter in the last few months, hence why they'd try setting it up to look like she did it. My guess on that is that it would give you guys someone to blame if something sudden were to happen to me, i.e. the Valsion suddenly deciding to go boom for no apparent reason with me inside.

Two, someone was aware at least far enough in advance of our, or at least MY movements to plant the Val in the first place, fully expecting me to jump at the opportunity to grab it and set myself up the bomb, as one would say. That takes either some serious foresight in guessing that we'd hit the Gate Project sooner or later, or they're doing a much better job of second-guessing us than we thought.

I've got an idea of who pulled this, but I'm not going to worry about it until after we get back from Jupiter. If I'm right, and there's really a 95% chance that I am, then they don't operate any further out than the moon anyway, so it's not like we'd be able to do anything to them until after this operation.

Good. We've got enough to worry about in the Jupiter mission already.


I'm told everyone's doing pretty good in the sims. Except Andrew, who's just introducing the world to his strange ability to metabolize any substance into raw carrots.

Actually, I talked to Nefaln in one of the sim runs, and he says we're some of the best and most adaptable pilots he's seen. And he doesn't give compliments lightly.


But I'd like to see everyone making Newton's third law their bitch by the time we start fighting.

That includes me, for the record. My space dogfight skills are  rusty, so I'm doing overtime in the sim too.
My biggest issue is that I'm not watching my reaction mass usage, and I keep running out. It's pretty embarrassing, really. I need to get back out of the constant thrust mindset.

hey did you guys  remember the rapid acceleration, deceleration training right...WHAT!  You forgot about it, *sigh* in space combat its the best way to capture units and the pilots alive.

Well good news I have a program for the sim don't worry, I'll set it to easy for you first timers. So It won't exceed the max speed of you mech I call it warm up mode. Once your used to the basics you can increase the intensity.

Oh! I almost forgot Do not turn by high 3 last person to try it quite literary fell in to pieces afterwards it was not pretty. There are 40 settings E(1-10) LM(11-20) UM(21-30) H(31-40)

hey did you guys  remember the rapid acceleration, deceleration training right...WHAT!  You forgot about it, *sigh* in space combat its the best way to capture units and the pilots alive.
Chaostic, there's a reason no one but you had this training.
The best way to capture pilots in space is to invade their base. It's VERY easy to kill a pilot, regardless of if the damage is to the cockpit or power plant areas.
Explosive decompression is not fun. Nor is a life support system suddenly flooding your cabin with noxious fumes. Nor is a ruptured reaction mass tank leaving you locked in a straight-line trajectory through a combat zone.


There's no safe way to capture someone unless they eject. That's safe for you AND safe for them.

For the record, if your mech is damaged, I expect you to return to base as soon as possible. Don't even THINK of shrugging it off like a macho schmuck.
Come back to the fight in something without holes in it. We've got plenty of spare mechs, but pilots are hard to replace.

Great. So you're advocating whiplash and organ damage as a way to capture your opponent? That's TWO reasons no one else had this training.
I've done that before, in moments of desperation(keyword: limiter release). It's NOT a good idea. In fact, it's a monumentally stupid one, unless there's no other options.

I think I'll be leaving the limiter ON, thank you very much.
And I may be attending your sim training from now on, to keep you from picking up any more terminally bad ideas.


Don't accelerate more than you have to. It just wastes reaction mass and makes it harder to change directions.

don't worry I don't think that theres anything higher then E3, E6 at the very highest but its highly unlikely E1 is comparable to astronaut training. That reminds me we're missing a program for combat during atmospheric reentry

yeah lets go to the hanger we need to finish you pilot profile for the Medius Locus from what I can tell the AI controls the mechs evolution according to the data Its form should have been 50 Meters in height but its 39.7 Meters its kinda... puzzling but our profile data being half complete it the time may be part of it the only data I have to that of the Medius Locus that Albero Est was the pilot of.

You know, JayBee, I'm really glad I have 'Scythe. The 'Scythe Hell upgrade was designed with these conditions in mind, which ends up seriously taking the edge off a lot of the potential problems of space combat. A few more matches like this, and I might get good enough to actually *HIT* you.

Owww....

Well, Doc says I'm fine except for the loud ringing.  He said that would clearup in a few days.  I might be a bit rusty on 0G combat, but the doc said not to do anything that may screw up my balance so I'll be out of practice for a day or two.  In the worst case, I'll learn as I go up there.  I'm not completely new to space and Nu was built  for this enviornment.

By the way Derek, I think you're right.  She seems like she would prefer to twist your neck off herself than plant a car bomb (or a mech bomb, you know what I mean).  Still, I don't think it would be too much of a strech to figure that we might have gone after their gate program eventually.  However, if you know who it was, make sure to tell us when it becomes a factor.

On another note, any machines that are highjacked from this point on should be checked by their pilots.  Sorry about this, but theres this thing i like to do thats very usefull called hearing.

Yeah. Hell's a LOT better than the original would've been.
But you're still using a close-combat mech that's optimized for terrestrial combat against a space superiority fighter laden with missiles, lasers, and bullets.
I can hit you from further away, I have bigger thrusters, more verniers, and more delta vee. In space, the Omega One simply outclasses the Hell in every meaningful performance measurement.
Only way you're gonna hit me is if I don't see you coming.
...
Which isn't outside the realm of possibility. The Hell has a SWEET cloak.


But all things considered, you put up a damn good fight.

I don't suppose the Tallgeese's orbital boosters are compatible with the Deathscythe Hell?
Not that we have any, but it'd make for a more even battle.






Chaostic, We don't have an atmospheric re-entry combat program because there's only one rule for re-entry combat: don't do it.

It's simply not possible except for the most exotic mecha, and it those select few that CAN do it will be destroyed in the process.


Most of our mechs can't survive re-entry under ANY circumstances, so we'll be hangered out of necessity for the ride home.



Now quit worrying about exotic situations, and focus on real-world problems like how to blow up an army of space-optimized combat mecha.
If you have time to worry about capture stunts and re-entry combat, you have time to start working sims of our target.
*flips a disk through the air*

If you get bored and start wanting to try stunts again, the Reguld has a well-known weak point between it's legs. Shoot it, and the Reguld is disabled save life support and some erratic thruster activity. But it's a small target, and Reguld pilots aren't in the habit of holding still while you try to blow their ass off.
Disabling Regulds while under heavy fire is a stunt, but it's one that hones your combat skills.

Re-entry combat is risky, even stupid, but you can't say it's never been done.  Amuro pulled it off during the One-Year War.


Title: Re: AGGF part 2
Post by: Derek on March 11, 2008, 01:02:04 AM
He didn't actually do any combat during that little event. If I remember, all he really did was hide behind his shield and pray to his instruction manual that he didn't die horribly.

Wing Zero and Shenlong engaged in a nice little re-entry battle, but Wing Z was pretty messed up afterwards, and I don't think Nataku was doing too much better overall.

Those are about the only two examples that I can think of, and neither one really lend any credibility to the concept of re-entry fighting being a smart idea. Now, no one in the world is aruging about how incredibly badass it is to be able to pull off fighting under such circumstances, but it's by no means smart.

Oh, and thanks for the idea, JayBee. I'd been making a point of not using the cloak while I got used to the movements, but I think giving that a shot may be in order.

and don't forget the Jaburo descent operation in the Gryps conflict

our Exia, Virtue, Dynames and Kyrios all have the abilitty to reenter independently

reentry combat IS stupid, but it can be done if it comes down to it I'm sure I can take care of it (I've done it once and never want to again) so don't bother training for Re-entry combat


Title: Re: AGGF part 2
Post by: Derek on March 11, 2008, 01:18:01 AM
I look at re-entry combat as a last resort scenario. If you're doing it, you better have a damn good reason for it and not completely expect to walk away when it's all said and done. And you better have some badass music playing as you do it, too. Hence why Falling Down is still my theme. If I ever get into a fight with someone during freefall, I want to be prepared for it, goddammit.

Re-entry combat is risky, even stupid, but you can't say it's never been done.  
I didn't say it's never been done.
In fact, I considered citing the Wing Zero Custom battle as an example of the exception. The Wing boys drove some pretty sturdy mechs.


The YF-21 did it in reverse(dogfight from surface to orbit). The plane had to be rebuilt from the ground up afterwards(officially, it was completely totaled) and the pilot didn't survive.


The YF-19 did a re-entry under heavy fire. But it was more along the lines of cross your fingers and pray than an actual fight.




Sume Gai: The YF-21 is also capable of re-entry. So's the SDP-1, if the pilot ejects the FAST packs. The Hawks' VF-19s are too.
It's been a design feature of the VF series since the original Valkyrie.

None of them are going to survive a re-entry dogfight, though. Once they lose their optimal approach, they're probably gonna burn up, though the Omega One and Excaliburs will last longer than the Stampede.

well lets see it's combination of a nuclear fission reactor with a deuterion beam system. This two generators complement each other and thus in theory never power down. The deuterion system functions like a battery which stores the power coming from the nuclear fission reactor and then converts it into electricity. hyper-deuterion reactors are more powerful and efficient than conventional fission reactors, but require a hyper capacitor battery and recharging, which effectively makes it having a shorter operation time then the nuclear fission reactor.

thats about all I know about them but, I'm no physicist and atomic power is outside my of expertise.

Been awhile since I was in space. Never been up here with a battleship, before.

Hey Commander, I got a question. Think it'd be possible to do live space manuver drills, now that we're up here? Some of the more experienced pilots could lifeguard, in case something went wrong and someone spun out into an asteroid or something. Assuming it wouldn't slow us down any, it'd probably help get us more acclimated to this.

Durageiz here. Captain Jaybee reporting.
Sorry about the delay. We had some early live-fire practice.
A few faulty defense satellites locked on as we lifted through the geosync orbit shell.

Durageiz took a little hull damage, but there were no casualties or mech damage. Hooray for busted targeting sensors.
We're still good to go, and we'll be more than happy to give you guys some target practice.

Hanger crew! Load the paint missiles on the Omega One!


Captain Jaybee... I like the sound of that.
Arr, mateys! Batten the hatches! Open the injectors! Hoist the Jolly Roger!
*fires up a holoprojector that shines the skull & crossbones out into space*
Wait, we're not pirates...
Batten the Jolly Roger!
*flips the holoprojector back off*

The Focker should be landing on the moon within the day. THEN we hoist the Jolly Roger!
It's actually a tradition of the Focker to "fly" a skull & crossbones at the start of a mission. And this mission officially starts when we come aboard... if you can call a Phantom op official.

<OoC>: Bright is the captain but Jaybee is the "operational commander" for the AGGF forces on the Duragreiz (I guess he could call himself Captain if he wants; it does sound better than "Operational Commander Jaybee")
</OoC>

I'll have the mechs set up in a few hours we'll be in a good spot at around 1900 hrs tonight

for now I'll I'll be planing for "Operation Jupiter Storm"

if any of you want to practice in pairs you may do so

I was tending towards Operation Thundergod, personally.

What exactly is a Strom, anyways? :P


And until Sume Gai's ready, I'll go easy on any sparring partners. I'm taking the Huckey out right now.

But come 1900, there will be blood. Or paint. Same difference.

*dodges a single missile coming from behind an takes it out with the vulcans*

Backup?

Check again. The Hawks are blasting each other more often than anyone else.
*fires another 6 paint missiles*
I'm abiding by the free-for-all rules.
Heck, I actually requested they hang back, so they didn't rip right through the guys that are still getting their wings. Unless someone wanders into the fray, they're safe.
I've got no excuse for my own actions, though.

Chris awakens in a small, black pod. He finds himself trying to adjust to the small LED screen that has monitored his health for the last little journey through subspace. He checks out to be in fair condition. "Where have I been, and how long have I been gone? Last I remember, I was applying to the AGGF... What's happened to me?" He finds himself querying.

"Welcome to the Moon. Please enjoy your stay."
Ahhh.... nothing against our ships, but it's good to be outside again. Even if "outside" is just a really big inside.

If no one minds, I'm gonna go check a few sights out while we get things transferred over. There's a jumpshuttle to Armstrong City leaving in a half-hour, and I've always wanted to see the Traquility Base Museum.

*looks around*
It's amazing, really.  This was once a barren rock untouched by life.
Heck, large portions of it still are, and people just take for granted the massive feats of engineering that make these little pockets of luna firma habitable.

Not really. I just need you to be considered a big enough threat that they won't be looking when I come up from behind. I've been tailing these guys since leaving the Metatron, but they're specifically keeping an eye out for me.

Honestly, I just need you to keep them busy for a few minutes while I steath hack them. Three F-29s and, ironically enough, a Cat's Eye. After I'm clear, you can feel free to waste them if you want. Sound good?

Ahhh.... that was a fun trip. Really gives you an appreciation for the early days, too.
It's amazing to see the conditions men first ventured into space under. We've got BATHROOMS bigger than the Apollo lander.

*beep*
Huh? Then need me in Hanger 2 on the Focker?
Seems there's some details they want to go over on the Omega's maintenance.I'll be back in a bit.

*walks into the hanger, looks around*
Well, here's the 21... some of the Hawks' planes... and a crimson Sturmvogel?

And where is everyone? I didn't come down here for fun.

*the door opens*
Ah, there we... no...

*An attractive woman in a UNS flightsuit walks through the door. The suit, as is typical of anime flightsuits, hugs all the right places. Unfortunately, the head is all too familiar*


"Lieutenant Kis'ney reporting as... "
*rubs forehead*
Hello, Shara.
"You... What are..."

I was about to ask the same question.
What's with the uniform?

"After our fight, I did some thinking. With my mech destroyed, I had to consider what exactly I was doing next. I'm never going to assimilate into human culture. But there's more than one way to make money fighting, and some supply the ammo and mech. I caught a shuttle to the frontier and enlisted with the colonial defense force."

Makes sense. Lot of action out there.
Doesn't entirely explain why you're ON  THE MOON in a carrier that's not even officially operated by the UN at present, though.

"That is... an interesting story. I was approached by an... individual. She told me, in a roundabout fashion, that there was an operation in the planning stages that required some pilots of extraordinary skill, and was wondering if I was interested. I seem to have been misled..."

About this tall, freckles, and a tendancy to giggle for no apparent reason?

"Yes! You know her?"
*sighs*
Excuse me a second.

*stomps to the comm panel, punches the shipwide channel*
CAROL, I'M GOING TO KILL YOU FOR THIS!
*doot*
"Jay! Want a hand with that? I'll hold her down for ya!"
No thanks, Mike, I'm good. Catch me later tonight, though. I've got some stories you'll love.
" I'll hold you to it. "
*click*

Okay... I'm sorry about this Shara.
Welcome aboard the Focker, currently picking the AGGF up for a strike on a critical base in the Jupiter region. The carrier and crew are supplied by the Phantoms. This is NOT an official UNS operation, and aside from you, all the pilots involved are AGGF personnel.

"That's a lot of Excaliburs for an  unofficial operation."
Yeah... we kinda sorta picked up a squadron. It's a long story.
Officially, the fighters were purchased by mercenaries and restored. The Hawks are using manufactured identities so they'll have a career when they go back.

Speaking of...
This your Sturmvogel?
"Indeed. It seemed a fitting replacement, and my commander keeps a few on hand for zentradi pilots. Many micronized first-gen zentradi prefer it to the fighters from human design teams."

Yeah, that wasn't what I was wondering. I thought we agreed you wouldn't fly in Milia's colors anymore. Am I wrong?
"It's a darker shade of red. And Milia flies white trim, not black. I don't see a problem."

Unassimilated my ass. You're a regular lawyer.
But I withdraw the complaint.

Back to the point...
You seem to have been roped in by our dear, sweet Carol. She's the Phantom requisition officer, and unofficial matchmaker. Unfortunately, she sucks at matchmaking, despite her insistence to the contrary.
I apologize for the trouble.

"It's all right. I shall consider it an amusing side-trip in my career. And by the way... Whatever it is we're about to shoot down, I'll shoot more of them than you."

Oh, you WILL? We'll see about that.

I assume you haven't had a proper briefing?

"I was told it would be supplied once the task force was assembled. I suppose that would be your friends?"

Ayup.

I'll burn you a datadisk and get it to you tonight, just to get you up to speed. There'll be a real briefing tomorrow, before we fold out.
Ummm... you don't have a problem with killing zentradi mercs, do you?

"No."

Okay. Then... I'll see you later. With Carol. She's apologizing personally for this.

It's good to have you aboard. Another set of guns is never a bad thing.

"This should be a VERY interesting mission."

I kind of hinted at it; I'm upper-class Solarian. I had Gebler level training and everything. I, unlike most, sympathised with the surface dwellers and saw them as humans, like you or me. I, sadly, didn't get to pilot gears, either.

I already took care of it. I've got no plans to try testing out Bellze's new upgrades while anywhere near Jupiter or in otherwise 0G conditions at this point, nor do we have time to at least play with it before we leave, so I just had them load it onto the Focker and call it a day. 'Scythe and Val were the ones I was making sure to have checked out, for the obvious reasons. Thanks for the offer, though.

If anyone needs me, I'm going to go use a computer on the Focker and start checking out this recon log.

Title: Re: AGGF part 2
Post by: Tyria on March 20, 2008, 12:54:55 PM
Finished taking a look at the disks and the results are...interesting.

Mainly it is long-range sensor data from the area near Mars. It indicates that on the past days, all the Zanscare remanants forces hidden on that area have gathered and suddenly began to move towards the Jupiter sphere. Also, some information from inside their forces says there are rumors that the bulk of their forces hidden on the asteroid belt after the war may also be converging on Jupiter.

We don't know the size of the main force, but the Mars forces are made of some 2 or 3 Adrasteas with 4 dozen MS.

I wonder what they are up...the only two conclusions I can see are: either they are reinforcing the base's defences at Jupiter or are going to take the chance to get The Power...

I see you and I have that much in common. Doc found me when I was four it was then I became a test subject for his genetherapy and nanotechnologically it was both heaven and hell for me, myself and the other in the failed G.O.D. project divided in to two groups of seven astral and celestial. When the project failed the doc saved us, treated us like his own kids. In the end I joined the military just to find who was behind the project.

Oh my I started blabbing on and on sorry.

Yo, sorry about not reporting in.  Anyway, I recovered my hearing and it doesn't take me ten minutes to be able to balance myself, but the Doc wanted to make sure I rested for a few days before discharging me.  So of course I'll see him in a month or so.

I'm going to attach the HWS system to Nu while we're in space and try to get my self familiar with space combat again.


Title: Re: AGGF part 2
Post by: JayBee on March 21, 2008, 12:59:18 AM
Hey, chief... I think UNSpacey might want the Focker back at some point. I wouldn't get too attached to it.

Speaking of which...
Given it's our only fold-capable ship, everyone needs to find them some quarters.
There should be plenty of room, though the hangers may get a little crowded with some of the hardware we haul. They were never intended for something like a Grungust or Giganscudo.
At least it's not a Bolognese. That woulda been downright cramped(I also had serious doubts that we could fit all our gear into one, which is why I requested an Uraga).

I should do introductions.

Mike here is the ship's commander, and an old friend.
"Pleasure to meet you."
Since this is an AGGF-headed operation, he's going to be taking orders from us, and coordinating the ship's crew.

Carol here is our sig/int officer, and a damn fine one.
"Thank you."
She's also our linguist. I don't know how many languages she knows, but it's a lot.
"Wait... you're never this nice... what's going on?"
She's ALSO going to be your tour guide for the day. Masaki, you stick to her like glue. We have neither the time nor the inclination to find you AGAIN. I will put a leash on you and tie it to her if I have to.
"What?!?!"
Payback's a bitch, ain't it?
"I was trying to help!"
Next time, help by NOT bringing a date. Especially not one that's tried to kill me multiple times and caused countless migranes.
"I have things to do! Important things!"
I checked with Mike. Your schedule's clear until we fold out.
"Since when?"
"Since I cleared it for you. Surely you have no objections to rolling out the red carpet for us?"
"But I... he *gestures towards Masaki* ... you...  ... *mutters something unintelligible, but no doubt profane in some language* ... I'll get you for this, J. You and Mike both. *smiles* Hello, everyone."

Don't worry. Her temper is fierce, but focused. I'm sure you'll get an excellent tour, if only so she can throw it in my face later.
*receives a glare that could probably hull a battleship*

Anyways...
She'll introduce you to everyone else. I've got some things to discuss with Mike here. Mostly professional, a little not. You know how it is.

Mike, did you hear about that Blowsperior I found?
"No way! That's YOUR'S?"
Yup. What's better is... I've got it stashed onboard. Secured in an equipment hold. Wanna take a look while we talk shop?
"You're damn right I wanna take a look! Why are we still standing here?"
Ahhh, it's good to have a friend that shares my hobbies.

For the sake of sanity, I too shall make a point of not letting Masaki out of my physical line of sight, even to blink. I really wasn't kidding when I said it felt like a dungeon crawl trying to find him.

Also, Commander, did you forget about my Val in the status roster?

oh right, forgot to mention, it's in that container with the fold boosters that you're dragging behind you (wouldn't fit on the Duragriez)

we really need to see it we can find a Space Noah Class (with it's hammer-space like storage) to replace the Focker

Well, yeah. It's not like we can take the Duragriez with us to Jupiter, unless I'm mistaken on my understanding of the effect range of a fold.


Title: Re: AGGF part 2

Title: Re: AGGF part 2
Post by: Sume Gai on March 21, 2008, 04:33:07 PM
actually with our supply of fold boosters (and the Focker) we can take all of our ships there and back by forcing them to do a "side-along" fold (like what happened during the Macross 7 incident)

at least that's what i have planned...


Title: Re: AGGF part 2
Post by: Tyria on March 21, 2008, 06:46:25 PM
Strange...very strange...that thing isn't exactly a standard thumb drive...first, we don't even have a computer that seens able to interface with it...second, chemical scans indicate explosive substances inside it, maybe some sort of security device...if you don't mind Chris, I'll hold on it for a while and see what I can do...

I didn't know we had a cache of fold boosters... that should actually work.
Provided we don't need to make a quick escape. Those things are single use, and it'll take time to replace them for the jump back home.

Ah well. Calling in a proper recon ship instead of flying out there myself got us better intel anyways.


If we need to run, we can try to force an overfold like the original Macross fold accident. But those tend to overshoot the target by a few light-hours, and take the fold generator with them.  So it's probably NOT a good idea to try except as a last resort.


By the way... keep Tyria away from the fold generators until we're back on Terra firma.


Title: Re: AGGF part 2

That's right. And I didn't even have to order them to do it, either.

And someone remind me to see if I can find some strings to pull somewhere when we get back from this operation. If I'm having to box up my brand new weapon of mass destruction after just one battle for the sake of preserving space, then we obviously need to acquire more space.

you can still use it you'll just have to go outside and get it

We need a (Hammer) Space Noah Class *hint**hint*

I was thinking of seeing if I had any strings to pull that could get us a (Drill) Space Noah Class *hint**hint*, myself. No promises, though. I'm not sure how many people in the right directions owe me favors, or how many would actually call in for something that big.

Okay...
I'm gonna do one last run and make sure everyone's clocks are synchronized.

We attack tuesday, then?


Title: Re: AGGF part 2
Post by: ChrisABlair on March 23, 2008, 11:21:34 AM
Just got back in from excercises with the Type 3. Everything seems to be running smoothly. The Colossal Blade had a hiccup in the formation sequence; is there anyway we can speed it up?


Title: Re: AGGF part 2
Post by: JayBee on March 24, 2008, 12:06:34 AM
Oh, I just remembered...
Anyone who's not familiar with fold travel, please familiarize yourself with the digestive upset receptacle locations.
"The what?"
Barf bags.

The physics in fold space aren't EXACTLY the same as in normal space. While ultimately harmless, the differences have been known to upset people's stomachs quite severely when they weren't expecting them.
Especially for such a short jump. We'll be in fold space for a few seconds at most, so we'll be dropping in and out pretty fast. Even some seasoned veterans are left disoriented after a bounce like that.



I'll spare you the details of the physics, because it won't really matter for the kind of mileage we're getting.
Besides, you probably don't really care.

But you might need to reset your watches when we get home, if you care that they're less than a minute slow.


Title: Re: AGGF part 2

sorry I haven't been in much contact (OoC computer troubles, again)

so how is everyone feeling here in Jupiter orbit?

Jaybee I'd like you to brief us on the enemy strength and number (just in case it changed) and if you have any tactical suggestions feel free to add them

If anyone needs me, I'll be busy fixing the internal clocks on 'Scythe, Alex, and Bellze. Fortunately for me, Val's in enough of a shutdown condition that it's clock is disabled anyway, and 'Vaun probably won't be getting back around to checking it out until after we're already back in the Earth Sphere.

I've got my visor with me, so go ahead and start the briefing. I'll just listen through the audio.


Title: Re: AGGF part 2
Post by: Sume Gai on March 24, 2008, 10:23:13 PM
seeing as Jaybee isn't going to brief us I'll give you an outline of my plan

here are the files I've assembled for the mission,

Stage 1:
first we'll split up into three groups (one for each ship)

the Focker and Duragreiz will move into intercept positions to the left and right (respectively) while the Metatron moves above and past the base (hopefully unnoticed) coming into a position behind it

Stage 2:
Jaybee you and Shara are going to be loaded with reaction warheads for a first strike (again hopefully we can use stealth here)

if the stealthy first strike is unsuccessful/impossible we'll move onto stage 3

Stage 3:
the Metatron will move into range and fire it's Lohengrins as a distraction while the Duragreiz and Focker launch fake Asteroids and mechs in teams (the teams are up to the individual commanders  (Derek on the Duragreiz, Jaybee on the Focker and myself on the Metatron)  from that point on you have permission to use whatever methods are necessary.

Big Zam Kais:
the BZK is heavily armed and armored but has a critical weak point located in the center of the underside (where several PS plates meet); this point is usually unreachable because the BZK is on the ground however in space it's a whole new ball game.  The mass of a BZK gives it a naturally high momentum (meaning it's very difficult to accelerate in space) making it's weak spot easier to hit. take full advantage of your mobility

Za Powa:
this is a rumored energy source located on jupiter little is know however Dr. Shishio suggests that it may respond to human courage (other info is unknown/unconfirmed)

also note anyone piloting a GN drive unit I have enabled Trams-Am mode but use it wisely.


Title: Re: AGGF part 2
Post by: JayBee on March 24, 2008, 11:09:42 PM
I was waiting for results from our recon probe to come back.
Make sure nothing's changed


Enemy strength seems to be about what the UNS recon mission saw.

There's a new model peppered amidst their forces now, though.
GN-X.  (http://www.mahq.net/mecha/gundam/00/gnx-603t.htm)
You were right, chief. They've been making GN drives.
Sensors will be of limited use. Targeting should be restricted to image tracking only.


The reinforcements we're expecting haven't shown up.
They may be in hiding.
Or even still en route. After all, we folded here. If they're using conventional drives, they won't be here for weeks.

But I wouldn't count on it. Be ready for more enemies to show up at any moment.
Hell, let's assume the worst-case scenario. Expect defold signatures during combat. If anyone would strap fold boosters to a mobile suit, it'd be Char. And I think he can pull off dropping an elite team into the middle of a raging dogfight, too.

Of course, this is an unknown quantity.
Char has standards, so we may be on the same side.
They say the enemy of my enemy is my ally.
Until we find out who's in charge of this operation here, it's gonna be hard to guess what happens.


There is one thing that bothers me...
*brings up a scout probe sensor feed*
Everyone is already deployed, and on full alert. The hangers seem to be empty, and sensors are on full. So much for the surprise attack.
It's like they know we're here already. But they aren't they coming for... us?
*squints at a point near the station, then magnifies a grid location*
No... they don't know we're here. They just want to make sure nothing interferes... shit!

*takes a deep breath*

EVERYONE SCRAMBLE! NOW! THE SHUTTLE'S ALREADY HEADED FOR JUPITER!

*runs for the door*

Ignore all hostiles you can! That shuttle has four Big Zam Kais, and there's bays for a dozen mobile suits. I'm assuming GN-drive units. Probably advanced prototypes or high-end conventional units that've been retrofit to use GN drives.
If they harness The Power, it's over. The shuttle is the ONLY target that matters! We'll worry about everyone else later!

*leaps in the YF-21, launches*

Hawks, Shara, you're with me. Spearhead formation, I'm point. Full throttle and to hell with the reaction mass. Break off when we get in range of the shuttle. I don't want you caught when me and Shara go thermonuclear on their ass. Mike, fire all guns. Plow the road for us.
*a dozen rogers echo back, as the launching VFs drop into formation and weapons fire cuts loose from the Focker*
Dammit, why couldn't we borrow a New Macross?
"Believe me, if there was one free, we'd have brought it. We'll just have to hope the Focker lives up to it's name. CAROL! THE JOLLY ROGER!"

*grins in spite of himself as the classic skull and crossbones is projected out into space*

Well, with that on our side, we can't possibly lose.
...
Who in the brass approved that piece of hardware, anyways?
*the spearhead opens fire on a group of Regulds*
Contact!

"Hell if I know who approved it. Gunners! Point 37-Delta! "

* two reaction warheads fly toward the shuttle

several GN-X's (note pronounced "jinx") fly out and form GN fields to protect the shuttle

they die in the resulting explosion but manage to protect the shuttle*

Jaybee, break off! I'm in range.

*locks on as the shuttle's large bay door opens*

BLACK! HOLE! BUUUUUUUSTAAA!

* the black holes hit the shuttle squarely but a single BZK and four GN-X's escape*

Tyria, I leave the GN-X's in your 'care' I'll take care of the BZK

*ejects the gunner module and docks the attached Boxer parts*

Lets do this, you monster!!!!

*flips around, swaps to battroid, and starts decelerating*

Shara, Hawks, your remass all right?

*a chorus of affirmatives comes back*
Good!

*flicks out the beam sabers*
Let's rock!

Everyone break formation and attack at will!

"I think I'm staying right where all the action winds up for the moment."

Roger that, Shara.
I'll take that GaZowmn pack at three o'clock. The one with the Glaug in it.  You take the Gnerls at 7.

"All right. 50 credits says I have more kills at the end of this mess."
You're on!

Get in line, kids. My bodycount's already at thirty and rising, and I haven't even started with the fun stuff yet.

Speaking of, I think the base is worth about sixty points on it's own, easy. Time to show these clowns just WHY 'Scythe here is one of my favorite mechs. You guys'll know I'm done when half the base suddenly explodes. Stealth time!

*spins around, drops in on a GaZowmn's 6, and sends a laser through the engine mount*

That's 46!

"49! No, 50!"

*launches into a pack of Gelgoogs and fires a missile cloud*

59!

*flips to battroid and slashes at a ReGelg*
Sixty... nope, 59.

*blocks a missile with the barrier, spins out of the way of an incoming beam shot, and gets kicked by a Ga-Zowmnn*

Ooof!


Seems we have some big fish here...

*a flurry of attacks is exchanged rapidly*
Impressive!
...
Hmm, this may be a tad too close to the planet for comfort...
*opens the throttle a little*
Yep, DEFINITELY too close for comfort.

*a shot from a Glaug damages an engine*
*a laser from Shara's plane rips the Glaug's cockpit apart*

SHIT!

*opens the throttle to max*

Ummm, guys... I might have a SLIGHT problem here... I'm deep enough into Jupiter's gravity well that I actually needed BOTH engines.

"Hey! You're not allowed to go out like that! It reflects badly on me if you die a cheap death!"

Ummm, Shara... it's not like I planned this...

*starts slipping into Jupiter's atmosphere, flips to fighter mode*
"Get your ass back here! I'll shoot you down myself!"
I'm TRYING!

*kills comm*
Now let's see... I've been in worse situations. Like the time I... or maybe... hmmm... okay, maybe I HAVEN'T been in a worse situation.

What can I do about it, then?

...

GRR! That shot wasn't even AIMED at me!
*pounds the dash with a fist*
Limiter off!

...

Wait, what good does that do me? It wasn't restricting my throttle, just max acceleration.

I am NOT going out like this! I still have things I need to do!
*sees a light glowing*
This isn't happening. I refuse to acknowledge it.
...
Wait... this isn't that light... it's... no way...
*laughs*
Isn't this just a little TOO ironic?

Well, far be it from me to look a gift horse in the mouth.

*focuses will, concentrating for a moment*
I think that will work...
*forces some energy into the Omega One*


All right, now we're talking!
*rips back out of the clouds, the YF-21 glowing orange*



Shara, I'm afraid I'll have to welch on our bet. I think this qualifies as an unfair advantage.
"No can do! I'm at 73 now! Not my fault you lost time to a stupid shot like that!"

*fires a laser through an incoming squad of Gnerls*
And I'm at 70.

"What?!?! With one shot???"



Well, these goons wanted The Power... it's only right that I deliver it to them.
Mmmm.... Ya know, I think I can actually fly SAFELY with the limiter off right now...

Now then...
*shifts to battroid, spins the right beam saber idly between his fingers*
Where did that ReGelg and Ga-Zowmn go?

Ah-ha!
*boosts upwards, slashing at them as they dodge... only to be cleaved by the rapidly-extending saber blades, along with a few others*

75.


*beepbeep*
Well, it's just one thing after another, isn't it?
Sir, I'm detecting multiple gravimetric anomalies. We have defolds beginning.

*several flashes of light rip open in space, and a swarm of mobile suits appears as the lights die away*

And there they are.

*looks for the red one, then waves to Char*
Hello, good sir! Be ye friend or foe?

Anyone know his comm channel? Or do we just wait to see what he shoots first?


Title: Re: AGGF part 2
Post by: Derek on March 25, 2008, 09:22:58 AM
I can figure out his comm channel, if you guys want.

*Calmly jets out of the way of an incoming funnel volley aimed at the base behind him that pretty much finishes off what was left of that side of the base*

Or he could just do that. Oh hey, found the channel.

"The AGGF. Why am I not surprised to see you here?"

Because we're awesome like that and have a penchant for blowing up the right place at the right time? How ya doin', Red Comet?

"Blue Wings. Glad to see you're still around. Word on the street was that some rather nasty customers out of Moonshadow were looking for you. That, and Luna."

Yeah, it's a gift. Oh, I never did get to thank you for helping me rig that Fakezabi to blow.

"None needed. That was just me taking out the trash. Speaking of, I see you all have been keeping yourselves busy since La Meina. Did you already catch the shuttle?"

Yeah, and we're mostly down to cleanup, now. Wanna help out?

"If you insist. Don't bother asking if I'll join your little group, though. We're taking out these forces, and then I'm out of here."

Fair enough. Doesn't look like anyone's really made a point of targetting the Gelgoogs, yet. I say we start there.

"Might as well. Let's go, men!"

that thing is falling fast; the Boxer frame can't accelerate that much or it'll  break apart

*suddenly the BZK turns around and fires as it falls*

 pathetic.

Damn, anyone in sector 0-4-6 J clear out that thing has just become a big problem.

GIEST KNUCKLE.

argh.. I won't go down that easy...

*the 008X begins glowing orange*

I THINKS IT"S TIME FOR SOME PAYBACK

*the 008X flies back up toward the BZK which is  firing wildly; the Giest Knuckles' finger amour falls off revealing claw like fingers underneath*

Now; GRAVITON! HEEEEELL AND HEAAAAAVEN!!!

*the 008X joins it's clawed hands together as I chant in Latin and charges into the BZK  from the bottom.  multiple defold signatures are detected as enemy reinforcements arrive and begin launching units.*

WRONG TIME, WRONG PLACE!

*a wave of gravitic energy fires from the 008X's hands from within the BZK and through the enemy reinforcments taking our dozens of small units and five battle ships*

we're not done yet this is (or was) the EF Mars fleet expect Virgos, Tauruses and Bawoos (http://www.mahq.net/mecha/gundam/zz/amx-107.htm) along with three more sadalahn class (http://www.mahq.net/mecha/gundam/zz/sadalahn.htm) ships

If I'd realized you were having trouble with that thing, I'd've come to lend a hand earlier.

104, and I'm taking it easy.

"Eighty... three... I suppose it is too late to let you back out?"

Sorry, sweetie. You made your bed, now lie in it.

My complements on your team's defold, Char.

You make it look like jumping into the middle of a battle is as safe as defolding in the interstellar void.
"Stop waving at me. It's just immature."

Sounds like someone can't take a compliment.

*fires Graviton rifle into several Virgos*

well the main problem was that I spent a lot of propulsive energy catching up to and destroying the shuttle., so I really didn't have enough left over to catch that thing sooner.

speaking of energy I've used up Za Powa and most of my own energy reserves so I think I'll head over to the Metatron and switch to the Strike IWSP

I'm going for the station.
*snatches a beam saber from some floating MS debris*

*As the Stampede Valk nears the station, mechs begin pouring out of the hangers*
What?!?! He was holding something back?

I see 2 Neue Ziels, and about 200 mobile suits...
No, they aren't mobile suits. They're... Heavy Metals. Space Graias,  (http://mahq.net/mecha/l-gaim/l-gaim/spacegraia.htm) specifically.

What kind of...

Attention, enemy base! Surrender, and you may yet live.

"I don't think so."

You! That explains a lot...
Not many people would set a trap at an actual critical operation. Fewer could actually pull it off.

But you overlooked one thing.
"I have enough mecha to handle the AGGF and Char's forces. You know I can bring more in as I need to. Don't delude yourself."

That's not what you missed.

Your problem is...
*the Stampede raises the stolen beam saber above it's head, and the Valkyrie begins glowing orange*
I have The Power.


"Hmmm, I didn't plan for that. It COULD prove difficult, with you positioned where you are now... farewell, then. We shall meet later."

NO!
*the saber grows to absurd lengths as the Stampede rapidly swings it down, cleaving the station in two before it fails under the excess energy . The Stampede casts the saber to the side as it explodes*

Damn, a fold signature. He got away.


Let's clean up this mess.

I'll explain later.
DAMMIT!

You may have The Power, Jay, but you didn't mention anything about having The Touch. So, loss of points on that one.

And we both know I scored most of the damage on that base before you wiped it out. But hey, thanks for the extra cannon fodd--

Ah, seems I finally reached my limit. Damn, and I was hoping I could reap a few more before 'Scythe gave out. Oh well, time for Plan B. Incoming, Metatron! I need to get some more kills before the end of this, and you have just the mech I need!

Shining Gundam, launching!

Now, I think it's time we really get started with this. I'll keep the other Ziel busy till someone can help JayBee. Or I'll take it out myself. Only one way to find out.

Let's rock! SHISHIO BLADE!

feel the sting of my blade.

*the Strike slashes through two Heavy Metals that move to intercept then soars upwards raising the blade above its head and then ejects from the IWSP and descends slicing deeply into the Neue Zeal's armor.  The IWSP and disconnected Strike meet below the Neue Zeal and dock*

NOW FOR THE FINISHER

*the IWSP pulls up hard to bring its railguns to bare and fire several shots as it speeds upwards and readies the sword again*

YAAAAAAAAA!!!!

* the IWSP drags the sword along the other side of the Neue Zeal as it flies by.

Commander, do you copy!? I intercepted a transmission for the GN-X that spoke of a transport carrying a REAL GN-Drive. It is to meet with a fold-capable warship soon. I don't know how much protection they have, but it must not be much, otherwise they would not have given us the slip. Let me take a fast unit and intercept!

Eh, Mobile Armors, Heavy Metals, battleships, it's all the same to me. Sword fodder.

Besides, that guy REALLY hadn't expected me to punch him in the head before going all Hiten Mitsurugi on him. Sheath hit is fun and all, but it's much more satisfying to vary it up when you can.

Anyways... this Neue Ziel is a pain.
If I was in the Omega One, I could match it's moves easy enough, but in this... it'll take some creativity.

All right, all set.

*ejects 8 missiles, flies ahead of them and towards the Ziel as they rest dead in space*

NOW!

*Slash* Six... *Slash* Seven... *Slash* Eight.... *Slash* Nine... *Slash*

And that makes one ten. Still plenty more to go, though. Like the last ship.

"You mean the one that's going down in flames right now?"

Ah, there you are. What's your count up to this time, Red?

"One hundred twenty, though I'll admit most of them haven't been as flamboyant as yours. Do ALL Gundam pilots have to act like they're showing off for a camera?"

Only the good ones, and I DO have a Shishio Blade. It'd be a shame NOT to act like a complete badass with this thing. Just be glad I'm not making any cracks about smiting evil, because it's REALLY tempting to.

"So I see. I also see that you stopped holding back considerably after picking up that blade."

Only a little. I haven't pushed the synchronization rate past 80%, yet. There's still some natural reaction delay.

"Even for Newtypes, that delay could mean the difference between life and death. For one who isn't...."

But that's what makes it fun, isn't it?

"War's not a game, Blue Wings."

Never said it was, Red Comet. But if you get all glum and blah about it, you start to look at it as nothing more than a job. And if you look at it as something so simple, you lose the meaning behind why you're fighting to start with. And that's even worse than treating it like a game.

"That sounded like it comes from experience. So the rumors...."

The rumors are best left for another day, when we're not blowing things into Jupiter's gravity well. By the way, I'm up to 125.

"Sneaky bastard. Trying to keep me distracted?"

If it works, run with it. Looks like more fun is over that way. Let's go!

"Hmm. The Blue Wings of Kyonoshi, indeed."

Fuh...fine, run! Let me see the damage...light thruster damage...that takes out all the manouverability of the flying mode, but I can still work on MS form...hmn...I wonder when they damaged my engine...that explains why they were able to catch up by keeping  me inside the Palas Athene firing range all the way back...

looks like it's done; Char do you have an objection to taking care of the survivors.

"No, I wouldn't wish that kind of death on anyone"

and what of us do you have any objections to our departure

"I currently have no business with the AGGF; after all you're getting rid of several of my own enemies.  However, be warned; the tides of war shift and change quickly  and we may not be allies the next time"

Thank you Char, and if we do meet again as friends I'll owe you some drinks for this time and that one.

Well, darn. I was hoping to get a few more kills in. I saw you sneak out that last six or seven to jump ahead of me, Red Comet.

"Either way, my work here is done. We're pulling out, men. Begin folding proceedures and head back."

Aw, not gonna stay around for the celebrations?

"Unlike you, I have other problems that need to be taken care of. I can't afford to sit around staring at Jupiter all day."

Yeah, can't blame you on that one. I'd rather be looking at Neptune, myself. Easier on the eyes. Oh well. Till next time then, eh Red Comet?

"Stay alive, Blue Wings. That's about all the advice I can give you. And watch your back if you pass the moon again. Don't expect them to let you pass back through their turf again without at least a greeting."

We already got that, actually.

"Then expect a fight."

Fair enough. Later, Char.

I wouldn't worry; it's not like we made a lot of noise when we left or anything and besides if Jaybee's friend is who I think he is this wasn't directly funded by the EF armed forces (remember the mars "fleet" is really just a bunch of mercs in uniform)

I'll get the details out once we're back on Terra firma. I'd like to get us all in the same place instead of spread across 3 ships.

But yeah. He's self-funded. Totally fucking insane, but self-funded nonetheless.

I'd ask, but I know better.

Anyway, as Char made a point of telling, crossing back to Earth via Luna may not be a safe plan. On the other side, the moon is, for the most part aside from my personal problems, more friendly than not to us, and we don't actually have much of an idea who all might be waiting for us if we go for the space route.

Either way, I'm all for getting back to Earth soon, whichever way we go. I personally don't want to risk the chance of us still being up here when Spacey decides they want the Focker back.

......Aw, hell. That just reminded me about the ship thing. Let me think for a minute, who owes me big....hmm...no, he only owes me money...she might, but she's only good when I need guns....he would have been, but I needed that body hidden just as bad, so it didn't count...who else....

.....Her. Bloody hell, she doesn't have any forwarding addresses earthside, either. Gonna have to do this the hard way.

I honestly hate to say it, but I'm gonna have to actually suggest we head back via Luna, preferably stopping at Mao for a day or two while I see about my contact. It'll give me time to go ahead and exposition a bit about what I'm so worried about, while we're at it. What say you, Commander?

(I think he's referring to the fact that both events occur within the span of one game. Even if there's a bit of a timeskip ingame, it's still close enough together to count in within one major event on the timeline. Which, actually, was my other concern with the whole thing. We're making this up as we go along, sure, but last I was aware, we were doing it with the assumption that we wouldn't actually be treading in on the events of an actual game.)

Title: Re: AGGF part 2
Post by: Derek on March 27, 2008, 04:13:31 AM
(That's the trick, though. It's actually because you hadn't made a note that they hadn't invaded yet that we assumed it had, since they and the DC war occur so closely together. Most of us are pretty easily going to assume until noted otherwise that we're following OG timeline at the moment, and in doing so, assume the two events as one, as the game itself went. Conversely, because we know where the line was drawn in OG, we're not going to up and assume that, say, the Inspectors or the Einst have come around, since there's a notable division point in the timeline for that.

We walk all over the timeline wearing cleats as it is, but without a solid foundation to know what we're stepping on, it really does just come down to us making it up and hoping nothing comes along later to complicate or contradict things for us. In this case, having the bugs show up from time to time when we want something easy to kill or when Tyria wants to turn things into a total fustercluck is easy, and requires little explanation. Having the whole Balmar Empire drop on our heads isn't.)

(out-of-out-of-character)

My thoughts?

*Jaybee makes a fist*

Anyone that demands an unconditional surrender without even showing their face better be ready to put their money where their mouth is.
We may kick our planet around between factions like a worn-out soccer ball, but like hell we're handing it over to aliens without lifting so much as a finger!

*Enraged, he looks out the window*
My god... Is that their ship? It's huge. More like a moon than a space station.

*grabs a comm, puts out a call to Macross City*
You guys seeing this? Code Omega goes into effect now.
...
What do you MEAN you're holding off?!?!
...
I KNOW the colonies will be stranded if we delete the nav charts! Completely cut off from Earth! THAT'S THE GOD-DAMN POINT!
We didn't put them out there because it was FUN! We went out there to create insurance against an incident like this! It COMPLETELY UNDERMINES THE ENTIRE PROGRAM if we leave a map to every human outpost in the galaxy lying around for every threat to the species that wanders by.
...
NO THREAT TO HUMANITY? ARE WE LOOKING AT THE SAME SHIP? 
...
Yes, sir. I am AWARE you officially outrank me. I WILL take that tone with you, as long as you deny reality. Are YOU aware that you're never more than ten minutes away from a Phantom operative?
One way or another, those charts WILL be deleted. It would be nice if it was according to protocol.
Good day!

*slams the disconnect button*

God-damn bureaucrats.
We can rebuild the map after we win, but we can't afford them to get the location of the colony worlds.


So... anyone wanna turn that giant egg out there into an omelet?

 (MEGI-CHAAAN HAMMEEEEEER!)

Besides, even if I try to work on a Earogater-based project, it will have to wait after we deal with Rebi. As for the Megi-chan...well, let's just say I learned my leasson...as before, I had no idea what would happen if I tried to increase the Ze-Field crystals, nothing on my research indicated it would run out of control, the thing didn't come with a instruction manual. I didn't see anyone pointing fingers on the Vanishing Trooper incident, like it, that's proof that sometimes shit happens. At least now I know what NOT DO!

And it was totally succesfull on the part of adaptating a Megirot for human use.


Title: Re: AGGF part 2
Post by: Derek on March 27, 2008, 11:38:38 AM
Tyria, I'm gonna make this one absolutely 100% crystal clear.

If I catch you even so much as LOOKING at one of those things without a weapon either being aimed at or completely destroying those things, I really will not hesitate to fire. Officially, I will be aiming for the bug. But I'll be damned if I can't try for a twofer. We have ENOUGH problems without adding in whatever psychotic demons straight out of a Lovecraft story you feel like building.

Now, onto other matters. Such as that giant HOLY SHIT out there. I can see why this Levi chick is cocky enough to demand an immediate surrender. With that...I dunno, what, "White Star"? With something like that, it does sorta feel like she just jumped her queen out on the first move, putting us straight into check. If I had something like that at my command, I'd rely on intimidation, too.

Too bad for her, we don't scare easy. Right guys?

Stronger men have tried, my friend. Only one of them ever succeeded.

And he died shortly thereafter.

The point still stands, either way. Those that forget the lessons of history are doomed to repeat them, and I don't feel like repeating that one.

Know what, forget about me even being in the equation for a minute and think about it. The commander didn't hesitate to blow himself up to stop that thing the first time, and it's probably no small miracle that he's alive to tell about it. Do you think for a second that he wouldn't do it all over again if he needed to? It takes guts to be a kamikaze pilot. It takes bravery, honor, a will to protect, and no small lack of a self-preservation instinct. You don't just decide one day that you're gonna push someone out of the way of an oncoming nuke. Either you were gonna do it from the start or you weren't. There's no On/Off switch to it. It's really just that simple.

I should know. The number of people in this world that I consider important enough to me to take a bullet for is small enough to fit on one hand, but I can't count how many times I've done something brave, stupid, or absolutely suicidal in order to see them out of harm's way. If someone I care about is in serious trouble, I don't hesitate. I help them, and worry about what kind of fire I just put my own ass into afterwards.

Gai's exactly like that, Tyria. He knew that thing needed to be stopped, and if he had to blow himself and the 008L straight into oblivion to do it, so be it. If he had to do it again, I don't doubt for a second he would.

But it's one thing for such threats to come from outside. It's another if they come from within. Do you see what I'm trying to get at with this?

This isn't about you and me. We can hate each other or we could be drinking buddies, it wouldn't matter. My job is to eliminate threats to this fighting force. One giant monster is a freak accident. Two is either deliberate, or major signs of dangerous incompetency. Either way, it ranks as a threat. It's really just as simple as that.

Now, if we're on our way to the moon, good. I'm gonna start trying to figure out what to say to her to pull this one off...

to learn about Earogater tech is up...
And then you blew it.




*checks computer*
Good.

After a warning surged out across the Galaxy Network telling everyone to stay away, all communication between Earth and the colonies was cut 30 minutes ago. 15 minutes ago, the nav charts were deleted.
5 minutes ago, the head honchos at Macross City started shitting bricks.
I imagine the fact that they're COMPLETELY irrelevant now instead of just MOSTLY irrelevant has something to do with it.

No matter what happens here, humanity will survive.

Now let's start working out how to make all of that into meaningless busywork.

...

I have to admit this is a little out of my league. Last ship that big that I know of was the zentradi flagship from Space War 1.
Of course, the zentradi brought millions of smaller battleships too. These guys seem to have JUST brought the flagship.

It looks pretty poorly defended. I don't see a single gun on it, and it's got no escort whatsoever, aside from those pathetic little bug mechs.
And THAT makes me more worried than anything.


Title: Re: AGGF part 2
Post by: Tyria on March 27, 2008, 01:13:41 PM
Derek...say what you will, but I draw a line to hate between comrades when death threats begin appear. If you attack me during a battle, better it be a killing blow, because I'll do my best to finish you off and I don't mind if it is by my own hands or the enemy's.

Two giant monsters you said...I did anything besides the Giga-chan?

Remember...Earogaters can produce enough Megirot to cover up the Sun...they make up with numbers. At least it would be good if we hit their main Ze-Field crystal before they adapt to our forces.

Of course. It's always worse to see one ship than several million. If they send a million after you, most of them are usually fodder. If they only send one, it probably knows exactly what the hell it's doing. It's the Conversion of Ninjutsu in effect. If these guys had sent sixteen thousand or so of those things after us, I wouldn't be worried.

And I believe you missed my point entirely, Tyria. So, think whatever you want to think. I'm done trying to explain it.


Title: Re: AGGF part 2
Post by: JayBee on March 27, 2008, 02:38:12 PM
Well, a million fodder ships is still a million ships shooting at you. Or at your planet.
Space War 1 was a pretty hollow victory. Even though most of the five million ships in the final battle were small fry, the Earth was utterly devastated. And it was only luck that kept it even marginally habitable.

A million ships might not be useful for fighting an enemy(just because they'll get in each other's way), but it's a great way to raze a planet.



That's what I'm worried about. They have one really big, seemingly undefended vessel. They seem totally unconcerned about their lack of defenses, and fully confident that they can wipe us off the face of the galaxy. They're either incredibly foolish, or they have enough hardware in reserve to follow through with the threat.

the situation is grave, my friends;

The Titans have abandoned the colonies and gathered thier forces in a undisclosed position on earth. (some UCC remnants have come out of hiding and taken up post at L3 and L2)

Aerogator mechs are appearing everywhere in great numbers, word is several smaller bases have fallen already.

The rest of the EF is running around trying to cover their asses; it looks like Laker is the only commander keeping a cool head out there.

The Hagane and Hiryu Kai are currently on a rendezvous course; the Shirogane ihas been repaired but is under Titan jurisdiction.

Feh. So much for giving us thirty days to surrender. It's a shame this Levi Tolar's such a bitch. She sounded like a cutie.

Oh well, at least we're used to the prospect of beautiful women trying to kill us, eh JayBee?

...I still don't like the thought of leaving the chief behind like that. Hey Bright, what kind of range does Dura here have with the partical cannons?

"Decent enough to reach the area where Commander Gai is for a few more minutes, but I doubt we'd hit anything without a miracle. Why?"

Think we can lay out a covering fire for him?

"We'd have time for one shot, at most. After that, we're out of range."

Good enough. Go ahead with it.

"Alright. Target a spot a little ways off from the Commander, and fire!"

I love watching that. Did we hit anything?

"We hit one Bug, believe it or not. The rest of them dodged out of the way."

Good. One less than the boss has to worry about.

"Here's hoping we didn't just stir up a hornet's nest with that shot, though."

Here's hoping.

*Jaybee runs towards the hanger, stops, turns back, looks towards the hanger again*

Dammit, we're already too far for me to get there . But I can't just sit here!
At least bugs are fragile.

*the simulator doors open and Shara and Nifaln come out*
Ah, perfect timing... I needed to ask you something.
You've been in the sims this whole time?

Shara: Nifaln requested I assist him with practice.
Nifaln: I always wondered how I'd fare against a meltrandi ace...

And how did that go?

Nifaln: Well, I've learned my old Nousjadeul is the same class as a Queadluun Rau in writing only. There's a world of difference in performance.

Shara: That was the first twelve minutes. What did you learn after that?

*Nifaln hangs his head. His face looks like it's normal cyan color might be shifting towards purple, as if he was blushing*
Nifaln: Well, we also learned that I can't beat her if we both fly QRaus. Or if we both flu Nousjadeuls. Or if we both fly Gnerls. Or Regulds. Or Sturmvogels. Or VF-1s. Or Tauruses. Or...

*Jaybee smiles, then chuckles*
I get the picture. Cheer up, you'll get her after practicing some more. Trust me.

Shara: If he's lucky. I've only been defeated once in combat.

Once, Shara?
*Jaybee raises an eyebrow inquisitively. This time it's the female warrior's turn to blush*

Shara: Yes, well... *ahem* Did you need to talk to us?


Yes, actually. I needed to find something out about zentradi history.

Shara: We're warriors, not archivists.
Nifaln: That's a bit blunt, but she's right. You'd be better off calling Exedol.

Yes, well, the Sol relays for the Galaxy Network are down right now. So I'm stuck with you two, since you're the only first-gen zentradi I know.
Have your people ever fought a race called the Balmar?

*Shara laughs nervously*
Shara: I recognize the name.
Nifaln: Yeah... it's not real history. More like the zentradi equivalent of a ghost story.
Shara: Legend has it that long ago a zentradi scout fleet stumbled across a large unarmed battleship. It demanded they surrender. The zentradi responded with force, as is our way.
Nifaln: Yeah. And the Balmar ship responded with equal force.
Shara: The scout fleet called for reinforcements. More ships came, and the Balmar vessel escalated accordingly. With every increase in zentradi forces, the Balmar put more and more power on the field, never once calling for help. Eventually, the scout fleet's main fleet was called to put a decisive end to things.
Nifaln: And the Balmar vessel destroyed every last vessel. Not one zentradi survived. Their ghosts still roam space, seeking out cloning chambers so they can be reborn and resume the battle.

*Jaybee rubs his forehead*
They destroyed an entire fleet? That's... I can't even imagine it.

Shara: It's not real.  Just the zentradi version of the boogieman, told to fresh clones to scare them a little. Why are you asking us about a silly ghost story, anyways?


*Jaybee gestures towards the window*
Because your "boogieman" defolded in the Sol system a couple hours ago.

I was really hoping for something a tad more uplifting than "They killed an entire fleet.

Hey, JayBee. I just thought of something.

You ever notice how, since about the end of Space War 1, humanity's history has been a pretty big long list of extremely bloody conflicts with both ourselves and other outside forces?

I think I figured out why.

Let's think about it realistically for a second. Human kind, or rather, in all honesty, one damned lucky ship's crew, both military and civilian, managed to survive against and constantly cheat death at the hands of the Zentradi, a race of beings with a history of warfare longer than some stars have been in existance. They lasted an entire year out in space with no support or anything, then managed to, with the rest of Spacey's help at the final battle, pretty much defeat the Zentradi space fleet and effectively break their military force into scattered pieces that, for the most part, are never going to really recover.

The human race, who had barely even stepped out into the ocean of stars beyond our own planet, beat the hell out of a warrior race that had been experts in warfare before Earth even existed.

I don't know about you, but if I was a member of some alien race watching the intergalactic news and I heard about that, I'd get interested. Maybe even interested enough to want to check things out for myself.

That may be why we keep having to deal with these clowns. Guys like the Aerogaters might see us as a potential threat to be stomped out, sure, but they probably also see us as a challenge. We're it, we're the top spot, we're the big bad mothers that you need to step up to and slap around if you want to be considered the best. People keep trying to kill us simply because we have this habit of beating the hell out of anyone who tries.

Maybe that's what old man Zoldark really was trying to teach us. Humans can fight each other, sure. But we get our best hits in when they're aimed at jackasses who think they can walk in here and take over for themselves.

At least, that's what it seems to me. What do you think?

Interesting theory.

I wish these aliens would do their research, realize we got damn lucky, and leave us alone. We had inside information from zentradi defectors, accidentally discovered a powerful barrier technology, and it was absurdly implausable that the Grand Cannon survived the initial bombardment. Without any of those, Space War 1 would've ended like every other Zentradi encounter with culture: complete extermination.



And it's also a common misconception that the zentradi are  a non-threat.
We shattered ONE fleet. There's thousands of similar fleets out there in space, and the escapees from the Bodol fleet rejoined those fleets instead of wandering through space like nomads.
There's some reports that the Macross 7 expedition may've run into another one of those "megafleets." But they seem to be highly exaggerated, if not outright fabrications.



(Out of character: Mac7 "lost" episode: Fleet of the Strongest Women. The world would be a better place if it'd never made it out of the cutting room instead of shipped in as a DVD extra.)

Nah...what are the chances?

Getting closer and closer to one, with every passing battle that humanity wins.

Like I said, I think the biggest reason people pay attention to us IS the fact that we're lucky bastards who just refuse to die, no matter what gets thrown at us. Space fleets, asteroids, colony drops, the Brady Bunch Reunion. Humans have survived countless disasters caused both by ourselves and others, and we continue to do so even to this day. Hell, it wouldn't surprise me if someone out there was watching all this just to see what it'd take to finally kill us off.

But I know one thing, whatever finally wipes out mankind, it isn't gonna be a bunch of mechanical cockroaches and some stuck up broad who only gives out ultimatums just to say she did. Next bunch of Aerogater bastards that come our way is getting the Shinigami treatment.

.....I suppose I can probably expect the next bunch of Aerogater bastards to show up any time now, and when they do, something's gonna be wrong with 'Scythe, huh?

One of these days, I'm going to end up using something that wields a Zankantou. When I do, you will all know it.

I mean, c'mon. Excellen already did the joke with a Shishio. Even if I wanted to do the same, it'd just be stealing it.

Anyway, I'll probably leave the sword on Shining for now. It's actually harder to use than it looks, and I'd rather have full dexterity at my disposal when I wield something like that.

Anyway, can anyone see how the Commander's doing back there, or how close we are to Mao? I feel as lost as Masaki up here.

I haven't seen him in a while.

Talis: "If you don't mind Gai."

I'm glad for any help we can get right now

I'll board the Duragriez, Talis you keep the bits and fall in beside it.

Talis: "come on Gai. You know I wanna hear about what went down around Jupiter, and I want to have some drinks with you."

if you want you're welcome to come aboard the Duragriez, but I can't promise any drinks or time right now.

See JayBee, this is why Masaki was put on my ship. We're just complicated enough to get him lost in the right direction and put him out by the hangar. And I don't know about you, but I've never seen him get lost when there's shit that needs blowing up. Late, sure.

Lost? Nah.

"Actually, he did launch unannounced. If Cybuster didn't stand out so much, we wouldn't even have known he had left until that cyflash."

We'll be entering the dock at Mao in about 30 minutes; I'll be busy with some big wigs trying to see how we can help (short of the "damn the torpedoes; full speed ahead" approach.)

Talis "but I love it when you.."

Talis, please don't encourage them. I'm willing to bet given half the chance most of the AGGF would be out to storm the 'White Star' in a heartbeat...

try to relax; Mao staff will repair the mechs and I don't know when we might next get a chance to rest.

Relaxing's not as easy as it sounds, Commander. But I'm willing to try. But for the sake of alleviating this growing case of "Something doesn't feel right", I'm gonna check the local weather. Bright, how's it look out there?

"Sensors report an all clear around the area, with a twenty percent chance of--wait, why am I playing along with this?"

It's been that kind of week. So, anything on the three day forecast?

"Your guess is as good as mine on that one, but we should probably expect something to happen sooner or later. Like right now. We just detected several energy signatures headed this way."

When it rains, it pours. How many?

"It looks like....one heading towards us, five in pursuit. I can't identify them from here, but they're definately exchanging fire."

Sounds like a fun show.

"Wait. We just detected a distress signal coming from the first one. Odd code, though. I've never seen BW-005 before."

That's....I'm gone.

"What?"

It's an identification code. I should know, I created it myself.

"Wait, so that's...?"

Can't talk, gotta go save someone.

*In the hangar*

The hell do you mean, they're not ready?

"All your mechs are getting worked on. I'm sorry, but none of them are in any condition to leave right now!"

Dammit Astronage, I'm a pilot, not a perfectionist! I don't care if they're missing an arm or leg as long as they run!

"Then you're in trouble, because none of them do just that right now. I'm sorry."

There's gotta be something around here that's still running. I'll take anything, even a lousy....

.....How long has that Gespenst been there?

"Longer than I have, I think. I can't remember the last time anyone even dusted it, let alone took it out. Don't tell me you're gonna..."

*Jaybee finds an unoccupied comm station, punches in an encryption code*

Admiral Kridanik. Sorry my report's late. It's been hell getting a channel open since Omega went into effect.

"Lieutenant McQuade. You shouldn't antagonize the council like that."

*The giant adopts a stern face, which rapidly cracks into a smile*

"On the other hand, you should have seen their faces when everything went down, Jay. "

I imagine. I imagine you pushed the button yourself, too.

"But of course. Bureaucrats are the same everywhere. Zentradi, UN, Earth Federation... they're just too slow to react to a volatile situation. And besides, it was fun."

*Britai's face shifts again*

"So you encountered target 17 again... I'm worried about your ability to be objective where he's concerned."

*Jaybee's hand clenches into a fist*

You're damn right I'm not objective! You know what he did to Savara! My entire life was on that planet!

"Precisely. I'm concerned that it interferes with your judgement, though I honestly don't see a way this or any previous encounter could have gone differently."

Oh... right...

"I see no reason to interfere, just... attempt to keep a level head."

Yes, sir.

By the way.... you know we're raising a force to attack the Balmar, right? We've already got the Durageiz, Metatron, and Focker, with the Hagane and Hiryu en route. But we could always need another ship...

"My flagship is already en route, actually. Now is not the time to tiptoe around because of protocol."

*Jaybee grins*

They still haven't forced you off that thing and into a more modern ship?

"And they never will. Not so long as I breathe. This vessel served me well in the zentradi forces, and she's served well in the human forces too. It's still in fighting shape, and I confess to being rather attached to it"

I understand.

Actually, I was wondering if you could bring a second ship... Is it still spaceworthy?

"Ahhh.... I see. The council will have a fit, but... it can't be muche worse than it is now. Do you really think one more ship improves your odds that much?"

Not particularly. This is more for morale. She's beat impossible odds before, and I think it'll do people good to see her headed to battle again.

"Ahhh, I see... A Minmay for the new war. I'll get her ready."

Thank you. And could you make an announcement too? People are freaking out with the Galaxy Network down, and God knows the government isn't saying anything.

"Good idea. I'll have someone do th-"
No, I wanted you to do it. You've got a lot of charisma, and you're a respected figure, too. People trust you.

"Ah, I see. I still have much to learn, even after all these years. If you believe it will help, I'll make the announcement personally."

Thank you sir.

"Britai out"

Commander Gai, I took a look on the DC equipament. They have many stuff hidden here, but are willing to part with 2 units if we agree to finish them and give the data. They said we can take 3 if we put one of those GN-X in the exchange.

They have a complete Dai Zengar and it's complimentary mech (don't remember the name, but the song when you see it is unmistakable ), but theirs OS's aren't totally ready and bugs need to be weeded out. They also have 3 Barrelion X-M and 2 Guarlion X-M and 2 Lion X-M, and 4 Lion-X  needing some hi-tech components that Mao could produce to be finished for use. There is also a Astelion that needs to see it's test flight.

Also, their research was mainly focused on Earogater units, so they developed the means of making units with regenerative capabilities. Note that we cannot make the alloy for it, they are "recycling" from Megirots. Yep...skinned Megirots. They were using the units for the last few weeks, so they are pretty safe (seens like their records on Megi-chan were a lot of help). They are the units denoted by -M on the name, we can only take one of them.

They also are working on a bad-ass hybrid technology mecha (read: original mecha) that from what I could see from the project seens promissing. They offered me to join the research team to finish it. The main issue is a strong power source, we were thinking of using the GN Drive we got at Jupiter, it would be perfect.

So Commander Gai, what do you say?

C.  (OoC: it seems wrong to pick up a DaiGenGuard or an Asstenreiter at this point and why should the DC have them)

I suppose now that I've had the meeting I should tell you what we discussed

The government will take a defensive stand and build it's forces for an attack on the White Star in 20 days and they want us to join in.  in the mean time we're to check out a disturbance in L4.

and I suppose introdutions are in order; This young lady is Talis she specializes in buying and trading old mechs; she even has a private museum in Vaun Braun city.

[WALL OF TEXT ALERT]

(I think I'm going to try a slightly different writing style for this post. Multiple NPCs in the same room makes it hard to do otherwise. This is also officially the longest post I've done in a long, long time. And definately one of the most fun. I'd also like to note that Masaki makes for a really good ear when there's exposition that needs doing.)

*In the Duragreiz's hangar bay, with Derek, Astronage, and Masaki*

Derek: So, what's the deal on the doll, Astronage?

Astronage: You shoulda mentioned that it has a self-repair function, Derek. We spent a whole ten minutes getting ready to start blasting it when we saw one of the armor plates regenerating.

Derek: *Scratches the back of his head* Yeah, sorry I forgot to say anything about that. I don't have much experience with the model, myself. Glad to see you guys responded the right way, though.

Astronage: After all the Tyria Drills we've done? You'd better believe it.

Masaki: Wierd design for a robot, though.

Derek: Says the guy who drives a transforming bird with cat-controlled funnels.

Kuro: And what's wrong with that, meow?

Derek: *Shrugs* Nothing at all, but you can't point fingers at the rest of us for driving wierd mechs and not expect a few shots back. It's one of those things that happens when you hang out with other giant robot pilots.

Masaki: *Looking at the Fei-Yen* Point taken. Still, it is a pretty odd design even for--Am I going crazy or did that thing just move?

Derek: ......Yeah. I think we all oughta step back now. WAY back. Everybody away from the pink robot!

*Almost on cue, the Fei-Yen starts moving again, this time much more noticably. The lights on it's front visor slowly blink to life, and the mech...yawns?*

Fei-Yen: *Moves it's arms around as if it's stretching* Nya.....that was a nice nap......

Derek/Masaki/Astronage: *Sweatdrop*

Fei-Yen: *Looking around*....Hey wait, this isn't my bed! And I wasn't taking a nap, either! I got attacked by those guys, which means....*The mech starts looking around frantically as it holds it's arms up to it's face in a gesture of panic* AAAAAAAAAAAAAAIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! I'VE BEEN KIDNAPPED!!!!!!!!!

Derek: *Holding his hands over his ears* Aaaaaand, I'm deaf now.

Masaki/Astronage: *Doing the same* WHAT?

Kuro/Shiro: *Crouched on the ground, both of them holding their ears down with their paws* WHAT, MEOW?

Fei-Yen: *Moves out of it's docking space and promptly drops to it's knees, still crying loudly* WAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAHHHHHHHHHHHHHH!!!!!!!!! THEY'RE GONNA DISSECT ME LIKE A FROOOOOOOOOOOOG~! THEY'RE GONNA CUT ME APART AND SEE WHAT MAKES ME TICK INSIDE, AND THEN TELL THEIR FRIENDS, AND WRITE A PAPER ABOUT IT, AND GET A PASSING GRADE FOR IT FROM THE TEACHEEEEEEEEERRRRRRRRRRR~!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Masaki: *Still covering his ears* Got a good imagination, doesn't she?

Derek: Alright, that's it. I have enough problems in my life without a giant crying robot bringing up bad memories of high school biology! I'm putting a stop to this right now, before she starts breaking windows! *Uncovers his ears and starts walking up to the Fei-Yen* You! Hey! Down here!

Fei-Yen: *Continues bawling*

Derek: Screw it. *Digs around in his jacket pocket and pulls out an airhorn* This looks like a job for--*Hits the button*

*BRRRRRRRRRRR AAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAA WWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWW NNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNN*

Fei-Yen: *Stops crying*....Huh?

Masaki: *Walks up to Derek, uncovering his ears* You know, I think that was actually LOUDER. You keep an industrial strength airhorn in your jacket pocket?

Derek: *Shrugs as he pockets it* You never know when you need to get someone's attention. You there, in the pink!

Fei-Yen: Wha...? *Looks down at Derek* A-are you talking to m-me...?

Derek: No, I'm talking to the Gespenst. YES, I'm talking to you! What were you doing out there, anyway?

Fei-Yen: You're in charge here, right? Wait a minute, your jacket's black! Those bad guys were painted black, too! I bet you're with them!

Derek: Wait, WHAT? No way, you did not just lump me in with those cretins!

Fei-Yen: You're just mad because it's true! Uh huh, I see through your lies! Bad guys like you think you can kidnap an innocent little girl like me, and do whatever they want, and I bet you like to WATCH, too! Hentai!

Derek: *Immediately turns red* W-what did you just--Lady, I don't know what kind of shoujo you've been reading, but I do NOT--WHY THE HELL AM I HAVING THIS DISCUSSION WITH A GIANT ROBOT, ANYWAY?!?

Fei-Yen:*Pointing straight at Derek and calling out loudly so it echoes throughout the hangar* Hentai hentai hentai!!!

Masaki: *Sitting back, watching* It's like having our own anime playing out for us.

Astronage: *Nods* Think we should get some popcorn?

Derek: Alright, that's it. I'm tired, I got shot at by people I'd really rather not have run into, I had to pull off Kamen Rider in a frelling Gespenst, instead of something I actually LIKE, and now the robotic equivalent of Usagi Tsukino is sitting here calling ME a pervert for saving her life? SCREW. THAT. I'm putting an end to this right here and now. BW-001!

Fei-Yen:Hentai hentai hen--Wha?

Derek: BW-001. It's my personal identification code. I believe you would find it familiar, seeing as how you're using my mechanic's ID code, yourself.

Fei-Yen: BW-001.....*If she had eyes, they'd probably widen to the size of planets right now* KYYYYYYYYYYYYAAAAAAAAAAA!!!!!!!!!! Y-y-y-y-you're....HIM! Captain Barona! The leader of the Blue Wings! But then, that means.....

Derek: *Massaging his injured ear* This is the AGGF Argama class ship, Duragreiz. You're in the hangar bay.

Fei-Yen: So, I wasn't kidnapped?

Derek: No, you weren't. I saved you from those jackals before they could do anything to you.

Fei-Yen: Oh. I, um..... *Puts her hands together in front of her head*...Oops?

Derek: *Sighs* They're not paying me enough for this.

Fei-Yen: But, wait! *Looks around* If this is the AGGF, then.....*She suddenly squeals, then jumps straight up onto her feet and pumps her hand up in victory* YATTA!!!!! I made it here! In one piece! And I didn't crash into anything or get lost along the way! *Starts clapping her hands and jumping up and down in celebration* Yaaaaaaaay!

Astronage: ......They're not paying ANY of us enough for this. Get her to stop before she breaks something, will you Derek?

Derek: If I can. Hey! If you keep that up, you're gonna step on someone!

Fei-Yen:EEEK! *Immediately stops jumping and starts looking around to see if she actually did step on anyone* Gomen nasai! Gomen nasai!

Derek: Alright, already! Sheesh. Just....go stand in that docking area, will you? I'll come up to you.

Fei-Yen: Oh, okay! *Bows to them and then steps back into the docking area, making sure not to step on anything as she does*

Masaki: At least she's listening to us, now.

Derek: Lot of good it's doing. You coming with?

Masaki: Might as well. I want to see how this plays out.

Astronage: You two have fun. I'm gonna get back to work on the robots that AREN'T freaking out in the middle of the hangar bay. *Heads off*

Derek: *Heads on up with Masaki and the cats in tow, walking up to the Fei-Yen, who turns around to face them before sitting down on her knees again to bring them to eye level with her* Alright, let's start with the basic question. What were you doing out there, Fei-Yen?

Fei-Yen: I have a name, you know! It's Fuyume!

Derek/Masaki/Kuro/Shiro: Fuyume?

Fei-Yen: Fu~Yu~Me~! Alex-chan named me herself!

Derek: And that explains my second question.

Masaki: How so?

Derek: Alexis Kitashira, someone I knew back before I started my solo soldier of fortune act. Her ID code was BW-005. You know, that code Bright picked up in the distress signal that sent me out there to play hero in the first place. The girl's a hell of a mechanic and computer expert. She's just, a little, you know....

Shiro: Eccentric?

Kuro: Overly caffinated?

Masaki: Completely insane?

Derek: I was gonna say sixteen years old this October, but those work too.

Masaki: So, this Alexis girl programmed her?

Derek: Sounds like it. Alright Fuyume-chan, next question. Why exactly did Alexis send you?

Fuyume: Well, Alexis-chan had been hearing about all these bad things happening, and decided that she wanted to do something about it. Then, she said she started hearing rumors about someone calling himself Blue Wings fighting with the terrorist group called the AGGF, and IMMEDIATELY knew that all the stories she was hearing about the AGGF being evil just HAD to be fake, cause she said her Derek-sama would NEVER work for bad guys, even though she hadn't heard from him in over two years, and if the AGGF weren't the bad guys, then they'd have to be the GOOD guys, so she hacked into the military networks to try and find out where you'd gone, and finally she heard that you guys were spotted at Mao Industries last week, so she sent me out here, and then those meanies showed up and started chasing me, and--

Derek:*Holds his hands up quickly* Okay, I think I get the picture. Sheesh.

Masaki: *Sweatdrops* She really is, uh, spirited, huh...?

Derek: Spirited like an Alteisen aiming a Revolver Stake at my face. Alright, so you're here. Are you supposed to help us fight?

Fuyume: Uh huh! She told me to find you and help you out in any way I can!

Derek: Well, I suppose another set of hands firing guns is welcome around here. But I know Alexis. She wouldn't send you just by yourself.

Fuyume: Eh? Oh, right! Silly me, I forgot! She told me to give you this, as well!

*Fuyume stands up, and opens a cockpit hatch. While there's no space for an actual pilot inside, there is a metal box about the size of a weapon case. Derek walks up and grabs it, then steps back as the hatch closes.*

Derek: *Opens the case* .......Never thought I'd see this old thing again.

Masaki: *Looks over Derek's shoulder into the case* A bracelet?

*Derek pulls out a gauntlet-like accessory, smooth in nature and completely colored dark blue, that fits onto his left forearm perfectly. The front piece extends forward over his hand, showing a green circle screen, with what looks like light blue bird's wings painted on the sides to extend away from it. He examines the item intently for a few minutes.*

Masaki: .....Derek? You there? Earth to Derek, come in.

Derek: Armband Remote Computer, or rather, ARC. Something Alexis made for me a long time ago. I left what was left of it behind when I went out on my own.

Fuyume: *Solemnly* Alexis-chan said they found it there, along with the remains of--

Derek: Alright. That's quite enough. I don't really feel like dredging up the past any further. Besides, I'm pretty sure I've used up my backstory quota for the week.

Masaki: *Smirks* Took the words right out of my mouth.

Derek: But I can tell she upgraded it. Any idea what she put in?

Fuyume: *Nods* Yeah! She said she put in some extra memory storage and a holo-projector, so that I could do this!

*Fuyume quickly stands up and turns around, and then suddenly shuts down. A few seconds later, a small figure about seven inches tall appears on the screen, smiling. She looks human, but there's no mistaking the pink hair and dress as that of the giant robot standing in front of them*

Fuyume: *Now speaking from the hologram* She gave me a wireless connection to the ARC so that I could transfer myself over to it at any time and help you from there! Neato, huh?

Derek: Okay, I'll admit it. That one's pretty good.

Masaki: Pretty out there, too. Even for us.

Derek: Masaki. Talking cats.

Masaki: Point taken.

Derek: And you have to admit, she's cute like this.

Fuyume: *Giggles* Arigatou, Derek-sama! You're pretty cute too, now that I get a good look at you!

Derek: Um, well, that's....

Masaki: *Starts laughing* Hey, you finally found a girl who's interested WITHOUT wanting to kill you! Good job!

Derek: Shaddap, Andoh! At least I know I'm not gonna have to spend money on dinner and flowers when they're shooting at me!

Kuro: *Sighs* You have some wierd standards, Derek....

Derek: Coming from the black cat wearing a ribbon, I might just take that as a compliment. C'mon, we might as well go on the tour, then. Luna knows, I could use a little bit of a break.

Fuyume: Okay! But, wait a minute... *Disappears*

Derek: Huh?

Fuyume: *Reappears on his visor, shrunken to about three and a half inches and obviously chibi. She then strikes a pose.* Tada! Connection to the ARC-Visor re-established! Now I can help your visual stuff, too!

Derek: That's....great. Absolutely great. Let's go now.

Fuyume: Okay! *Turns around so that she's actually facing the same direction Derek is* So, where are we gonna go first?

Masaki: I think, knowing Derek, he's gonna say....

Derek/Masaki: The bar.

Derek: *Immediately glares at Andoh*

Masaki: *Grins* You're not that hard to figure out, man. Lighten up.

Derek: *Sighs* Sure. Let's go, then.

Fuyume: *Smiles and starts giggling* This is gonna be so much fun!

*returns to Metatron's hangar bay*

Tech:Hey, Tyria, did you hear the news? Derek found himself some crybaby pink mecha girl! Heard she cried so loud that he had to use a industrial strength airhorn to call her attention.

Tyria:Industrial strength airhorn you say...and then I am the mad one here...really...sorry people, but I want to think of something usefull to develop to the text battle, since Commander Gai refused any help from DC. At least when the time to attack comes, we can count on them to send  some units.

Tech:Sure, just don't call me for a test wherever you come up with!

*walks to quarters*

Thinking to himself:...what could I develop...a new mecha? Nah...too little time...maybe I could push Infinity Justice...yeah, that's a idea, since I would barelly make it, at least I will already to open it to repair all damages...but I want to do something new...something bizzarre will work too...

*Image of 2 girly designed robots dancing with/beating Derek's mech comes to mind with a pink mecha girl acting as lead singer*

Thinking to himself:...that was...disturbing...after all, there is no way in hell that her singing will work on space...l...but maybe...a karaoke for future use? Hmn...what about those 2 dancing mecha...even if I build them...where would I find someone to pilot them...

*arrives in room*

Thinking to himself:Ah, to hell with that, I'll think tomohow...

Chris: Hey! What's going on it there? I heard a loud noise and a feminine voice saying "....KIDNAPPED!!!".

*Mechanic points into door, and Chris looks though*

Chris: What the fu--? GAHHH!!

Derek:*Stops walking and looks back for a second* Hmm? Eh, hang on a sec Masaki. Thought I heard more girl screaming back at the hangar.

Masaki: Sounds fun. *Looks around* I think it's coming from Chris down there.

Derek: *Looks* ....So it is. You seem to be having an effect on people, Fuyume-chan.

Fuyume: *Looking around with interest* Alex-chan said you used to say that about her, too.

Derek: For good reason. *Calls out loudly* Relax, Chris! She won't hurt you unless she trips! Just stay away from her and you'll be fine!

Fuyume: *Puffs her cheeks up and storms over to the front of the visor to confront him* Hey, that's not very nice, Derek-sama! My Fei-chan body automatically goes into sleep mode whenever I'm not in it, you know! She couldn't trip even if she wanted to! I oughta blackout your visor for being so mean!

Derek: *Sweatdrops a bit* Sorry, sorry! I was just trying to make a joke and scare the rookie a bit. I'm not saying you're clumsy or anything at all Fuyume-chan, honest!

Fuyume:*Thinks about it for a second, then calms down* Well, alright. *Starts to walk back to the side of the visor* As long as you're sor-reeeaaaaahh! *Trips and falls on her face*

Derek/Masaki: *Sweatdrop*

Fuyume: *@_@* I'm ay-okaaaaaaay~

Masaki: We don't HAVE to say it, that's why.

Derek: Welcome to Alexis's programming. Ten bucks says I could send her flying with a really sudden headshake, too.

Masaki: Pass. You sound like you've already seen it happen before.

Derek: I have. Let's go.

Derek: Yeah. Turns out she's been sent to help by one of my old friends. Just sorta giving her a tour at the moment.

Masaki: Which just happened to start at the bar. Like most of his tours do.

Derek: Keep joking, Cybuster. I've got no problems leaving you to find your own way around Mao Industries. I still get lost around here.

Masaki: I'll be good. Hey, wait. You said it yourself that your first time here was on our way through to Jupiter!

as long as she doesn't have friends that might encroach on my sword Surfing style; although I'll probably be using the DX for a while...

hey anyone want to try the 008X ? I'd hate to see it go to waste...

the parts don't exist yet but, those are plans for a new model of Strike StrikeE. I can arrange for us to get the parts to upgrade the Strike but it will a couple of months and don't ask me how I got those plans... I rather not talk about it.


Title: Re: AGGF part 2
Post by: JayBee on March 29, 2008, 01:07:37 AM
Hey, guys... find a vidscreen.
I wanna see what the boss came up with.
 


"We interrupt this program for a special report.

Greetings. I am Britai Kridanik.
As you know, the Galaxy Network is down. More specifically, all the relays to the Sol system are down. Some of you have undoubtedly noticed that it's impossible to get fold coordinates for interstellar jumps. And on top of everything, many cities have been attacked by Aerogater mecha.

48 hours ago, a vessel from the Balmar Empire appeared in the Sol system and demanded humanity's unconditional surrender.
The Galaxy Network and fold charts were immediately offline'd to prevent the invaders from finding and attacking the colonies.

If humanity surrenders to the Balmarians, your survival will be assured. They will brainwash humans and use them as pilots for their army. You would be cogs in the Balmarian war machine, little different from the zentradi you once fought against.

If you fight back, you will die. Or so the Balmarians claim.

I have always admired the tenacity of the human spirit. When faced with an obstacle, humans don't see an impenetrable brick wall. They see the cracks in the mortar. No foe is infallible, and the only true defeat is found in giving up.

*As Britai says this, video clips play in the background. The Macross charging into the Zentradi fleet, Gaogaigar locked in combat with EI-01, and a damaged Gespenst adding it's machine gun to the rain of fire pouring against the Valsion's shield are just some of the images presented*

I was once on the receiving end of this tenacity. I know how fiercely you can fight, even... no, especially when logic says you have no chance of victory.
As an enemy, I admired that undefeatable spirit and the ingenuity it fueled.
As an ally, I was a part of this same spirit as it  brought victory against an armada of five million warships. It was a battle I was proud to be part of, with allies I was honored would accept me. I have never once regretted turning my guns against my people.

If surrender is an option, if you would willingly submit your minds and bodies to the Balmarians, then the culture I admired so much is already dead.


The Balmarians are not as invincible as they claim. They have a weakness, and we can find it.
An attack force is rallying at the Moon. I am joining them.
And the Macross has risen from it's long rest to once again defend humanity against those that would see all humanity broken at their feet.

But our numbers are still small.

Now is the time for all humans to lay aside their differences and join us. Be they from the Earth Federation, Neo-Zeon, The Divine Crusaders, or any of a number of other factions, all of them are capable of rising above their differences to battle this new threat. If you can fight, I urge you to join us.

I make this request not as a UN Spacey admiral. Nor as a warrior seeking allies. I make it as a man that wants to see humanity's light continue to spread through the galaxy.

I shall see you all again after we win."

Tyria, don't think out loud so much. It scares me.

But here.
*tosses a data disk*
If you wanna make singing mecha, you might find some of the Sound Force research useful.
Speaker pods are your friends. And if in doubt, blanket the airwaves with a broad-spectrum transmission.

I don't really care how bad an idea this is, as long as it keeps you away from Aerogater... excuse me, Balmarian, tech

if Britai learned one thing from culture it's how to make a speech

*a knock comes from the door to the Duragriez lounge*

come on in.

* the door opens and a tall green haired woman in a flight suit with red markings enters followed by a man with blue hair and glasses wearing a UNS captain's uniform*

<nearly falling out of my chair in surprise> M-M-M-Max and Millia!!

what are you doing here? weren't you leaving to return to City 7?

Max: "well we would have but someone went and deleted the fold charts before we could leave. and, oh yeah, some aliens just warped in and threated the earth."

so wait why were you here in the first place?

Millia: "like I told you last time we can't-"
Max: "no need to keep quite any longer; We were here for a new mother ship for our colony fleet"

but the new Macross classes aren't built here.  And even if they were it'd be kinda hard to keep it a secret, wouldn't it?

Max: "it's  a whole new class built by Mao and based on the Kurogane, with a few of those Macross extras"

but that's not big enough to pull a colony ship-

Max: "this one is..."

now that that's settled, why exactly are you 'here' ?

Millia : "to help."
Max: "what she's trying to say is due to some legal technicalities most of UNS can't act and we decided to join up with you for the time being rather than wait for the bureaucrats"

I'm honored you're willing to join us, how bout we start by sharing some drinks I haven't seen you in forever Max; care to join us Millia?

Millia: "not yet, I have to meet someone else first"

He's on the Focker two docks over.

*Millia cracks a somewhat malicious smile turns and leaves*

Guard:Looks like you are finished here, come on, I received a call saying one of the sewage pipes isn't working right, so we need someone to check from INSIDE!! *evil grim*

Now, I'm not one for public speeches, but you gotta admit Kridanik knows how to make one. But, I'm curious about one little thing he said...

"What's that, Derek-sama?"

Was my hearing going out, or did he say the MACROSS was on it's way to help us?

*Fuyume quickly dons a pair of cokebottle lens glasses and pulls out a notepad, then starts looking through it*

"Hmm....no, I think he actually said that. Right before he started listing off a few faction groups in an attempt to appeal to everyone who possibly could help out so that they might do so."

Yeah, that's what I thought. Just checking.

There are three machines that are not Fury that you may want to know about, one is a thing called Basileus which is supposed to combine with Granteed (don't ask me how, call Mao), there is a ZGMF-X42S Destiny, and a ES. I didn't think there was any ESs left. Figures out of all of them Dinah would be the one that survives docking platform is destroyed though.

"THERE YOU ARE!"

Millia! What are you doing here?

"I believe I would be joining the defensive effort. Now where's the simulator? I want to see how my student is doing."

Ah. One moment.

*Jaybee looks over to an engineer*
Hey, did we ever get a performance model for The Power enhancements?

"No sir. We're still working on it."

Great.
Someone find Shara. Tell her to join me in the sim and use her QRau. And don't worry there's already a battle in progress.

No, I just want to live.

"Is that the best you can do, Jay? I'm going easy on you!"

Hey, I'm cutting you slack too, old lady!

*the voice channel goes deathly quiet*

"I see. Then I'm clearly doing you a disservice, and I'll quit holding back."

"All right, I'm he...re...

"I'm gonna kill you fro this."

Milia: "You've got a lot of nerve, flying MY QRau."
*the VF-1 launches towards the QRau, and they begin a dogfight of rarely-seen ferocity*

She's almost matching Milia's skill... damn, but she's good.

*an outside voice intrudes on the YF-21's comm over the din of explosions, battle cries, and personal insults*
"Hey, what mods is that VF-1 running? I've never seen one move like that."
She has red paint on it, Mike.
"I'm serious."
So am I. The thing is stock. Hasn't even had the 1X upgrade.
*stunned silence*
"No way... I'd heard she was good, but... THAT good?"
Thanks for getting Shara in here.
"You know we're BOTH going to hell for this."
Probably sent there by Shara.

Milia: Don't just sit there!
Shara: YOU SON OF A BITCH!
*the women yell at the same time*

Sigh, I guess the reprieve is over.
*The YF-21 deploys it's swords*
Very well, ladies. I'll join the fight. Free-for-all, I take it?

"Yes, but the QRau is mine!"
"In your dreams!"

*flips on Info High*

All right, let's do this.

Will you take bets on what JayBee will do during the beatdown? If so, I want to put down $15 on him begging for his life on his hands and knees.

*The three mechs dance through space, lancing at each other with lasers, occasionally with missiles after there's an agreed reloading period. Damage to all three is superficial.*

How long... have we been... at this now?

"I haven't... been counting."

Well I need... to pee.
Is it reload time yet?

"It seems to be."
"Yeah, let's do that."

Any objections to me changing my weapon loadout?

"It won't do you any good, but go ahead."
"I can't see a problem. I'll kill you either way."

Okay. I'm gonna go ahead and set a win condition here. Just for convenience.

Computer: Set simulation termination conditions: Surviving mecha less than 2.
Enter maintainence mode immediately upon simulation termination. 
Reload all consumables.
Change YF-21 loadout: Deathblossom configuration.

*The YF-21 shimmers in space as the weapons and expansion packs change. It now has larger packs on the bottom with several panels, and a pair of large booster packs on the top, with a pivot point. The barrier disks disappear.*

Right, let's wrap this up quick.
Everyone ready?

"Yup."
"Roger."

All right. Resume combat when you here the chime. Computer: Chime in 5 seconds.

BING!

*The YF-21 plunges towards the QRau and VF-1 at full throttle, dodging between attacks. It flips around, stops, and transforms to battroid once it's directly between the other 2. The tip of the back packs swings down over the battroid's shoulders, and the panels on all the packs flip out to reveal 200 ungided missiles.*

Dodge this!
*The YF-21 crosses it's arms.*
Starliiiiight...
*And swings them out to the side*
SHOWER!
*All 200 missiles launch at once in every direction. The QRau and VF-1 dodge them with no problem, not even bothering to shoot them down.*

Shara: "I think we've just been insulted."
Milia: "Indeed. Did you honestly expect to hit us with that?

No, not really.
*A green sphere forms around the YF-21 as the barrier system activates in omnidirectional mode*
I expected to hit you with THIS!

*Space turns white as all 200 missiles explode in thermonuclear fire in a sphere around the YF-21. The VF-1 and QRau are vaporized instantly, the YF-21's barrier overloads equally fast and explodes outward. In the end, the YF-21 is alone in space, with smoke pouring off the mech's charred skin and a hole in the side where the barrier generator exploded. The simulation terminates.*

*Shara punches the simulator console in rage*
WHAT THE HELL CHEAP SHOT WAS THAT? COMPUTER, RESTART SIMULATION!

"The simulator is currently in maintainence mode, and will be unavailable for the next hour. We apologize for the inconvenience."

*Milia smiles. It's possible she laughed quietly, but it's difficult to tell.*
"I didn't think that strategy would ever be tried on such a small scale. You pass, if only for amusement."

*Jaybee leaps out of the sim and runs for the door*
Thank you ma'am! I'll see you again later! I apologize for what I'm about to do!

*Shara leaps out of the sim and launches after him*
NOT SO FAST YOU LITTLE SHIT!

*As he slams the door, Jaybee presses his palm to the lock panel. The lights on the panel flicker as he reprograms it. As the bolt engages, Shara's fist slams against the door.*
Thank GOD my implants are working again.
"OPEN THIS DOOR, YOU BASTARD!"

I DON'T THINK SO! I'M SORRY, MISSUS JENIUS!

"Did he just lock us in?"
"DAMN RIGHT HE DID!"
"LIEUTENANT MCQUADE, UNLOCK THAT DOOR NOW! THAT'S AN ORDER!"
"YOU'RE A CIVILIAN NOW, REMEMBER? BYE NOW!"
*Jaybee resumes running as Milia joins Shara in beating against the door, with profanities in zentradi and terran echoing down the hallway*
I didn't expect them BOTH to forget about the emergency over-ride panel... I guess they really ARE that pissed...




"Hey, chief... we've got company coming."
*smacks a comm panel*
More Balmarians, Mike?

"No. Not even defold. Conventional thrust, from Earth. They're hailing us."

Put them on shipwide.

"Beg pard?"

I, ummm, kinda sorta locked Missus Jenius in the simulator with Shara. I think most of our forces are in the sim next door on the spectator channel, and there's no way in hell I'm going back."
"Doesn't Milia have an axe to grind with Shara? Like, a thermonuclear axe?"
Until about 30 seconds ago. Now they've united under the banner of killing Jaybee.
"I see... never a dull moment..."
Right. Now don't keep our guests waiting.
"Okie-dokie. Unidentified vessel, you are approaching the Anti-Balmarian Alliance. Please identify yourself."
*Jaybee steps onto the bridge, and sees a familiar mech pilot, sans bucketmask*
"This is Milliardo Peacecraft, commander of the Peacemillion. We're here to offer our support to the Alliance. We have thirty Tauruses at our disposal in addition to the ship's armaments."
Zechs?! I was starting to wonder if you were still alive after the ass whooping we gave you.
"I beg your pardon? I am Milliardo Peacecraft, and am unaware of any 'asswhoopings' which I have been on the recieving end of. Who am I adressing?"
Jaybee, of the Aeon Genesis Guardian Force. And the guy that WHOOPED YOUR ASS six months ago.
"I'm afraid you're delusional, sir. I've never met you before in my life. And from what I heard, Zechs did not get his ass whooped. He took mild damage, and gave as good as he got."

*another voice breaks into the comm*
"Can it, Zechs. The bucket mask doesn't work unless you make an effort, which you never did. And you really need to come up with your own costumes instead of stealing other people's."
"I said I'm Milliardo Peacecraft. Who are you?"
"Quattro Bajeena, if you know what I mean. Anti-Balmarian Alliance, I am here to offer my support. Check the lunar surface and you'll find a Hyaku Shiki headed towards Mao Industries. That's me. I'd appreciate it if I didn't have to walk the whole way."

I'll meet you in a shuttle in ten minutes, Mister Aznable. I need to get off the ship anyways.

"Roger. I'll stop here and save the fuel."



*a pair of enraged meltrandi burst through the bridge's left door*
"JAYBEE!"
And that's my cue. I'm pleased to welcome Not-Zechs and not-Char to the Alliance. And goodbye!
*Jaybee dashes out the right door, and heads towards the hanger, locking every door behind him*

OK Jaybee what was that about?

 DID YOU FORGET WE WERE ALL WATCHING THE FIGHT AS WELL?

unless you have a good reason behind this, I'll throw you in the brig.

now then Millia, Shara you boith agree to this correct

Millia: "I'm a very patient person I can wait for my own chance to punish him"

Shara: " I still want to kill him; but I'll restrain myself at your request"

*keys a comm channel*
I only locked the sim chamber we were in! I thought you guys were in the other one! I didn't see Derek's ticket booth as I ran out, so I just assumed.

The good reason I had would be saving my life from an angry Shara.

And really, if there's over a dozen people in there and not ONE of you remembered the manual bypass, you DESERVE to be locked in there with a pair of raging meltrandi, and we need to conduct emergency drills far more often. That was never intended to buy me more than a half-minute.

And quit egging those two on!


Title: Re: AGGF part 2
Post by: Sume Gai on March 30, 2008, 01:53:59 AM
well you try getting past two angry Meltradi to reach the Bypass switch sometime.

and locking Shara in only made it worse Jaybee, I could've restrained just her but with Millia as well.  You just opened a real can of worms Jaybee...

I've smoothed things over, but Millia says her forgiveness will cost a day in the sims with her and Shara wants her Stromvogel cleaned and waxed by hand

now on other matters Greetings Quattro and Milliardo



Title: Re: AGGF part 2
Post by: JayBee on March 30, 2008, 02:00:41 AM
Sheesh. I didn't even expect Millia to blow up in the first place.


And Shara can stuff it. I'm not waxing her plane, by hand or otherwise. She needs to worry about what happens if Millia sees that red paintjob on it.

Good thing I'm in a large shuttle. Besides, worse comes to worst, I can drop out of sight in the nearest residential dome. I may not act it, but I can be subtle and discreet when it's needed. 'Cuz I'm a secret agent man, secret agent man... they've given me a number, and taken away my name.

"Stop singing! For the love of all that is holy, stop singing!"

Sorry, Char.

Anyways, it'd be a pity to if I couldn't make the fight in my preferred mech, but I'm sure I could find something. And can you imagine the look on that Levi chick's face when a BALL started ripping her forces apart?
*stretches a bit*
I think I could take her in a fight, honestly. But it's not a theory I'm anxious to test.

I'll try to settle things Jaybee but you'll owe me big time if I can get this straitened out.

and Quattro do me a favor and convey to Jaybee that locking half of your wingmen in a room with a pair of angry Meltradi isn't a good way to keep friends.

Quattro: "Did something happen?"

nothing serious but Mason's got some bruises and Derek's got a mean black eye.

In JayBee's semi-defense, that black eye was probably my fault for trying to get past them to get to the door and unlock it. Millia's got one hell of a hook. I have yet to actually take my visor off and she slammed me straight through it.

Nevertheless, after THAT little stunt, there's no way he's getting 30%. You only get a cut when you don't make a point of screwing over the bookie. Not to mention, he completely ruined the second round of bets on how badly they'd mangle him for this whole thing.

Now, if you'll excuse me, I need to see Cybuster here over to Medical. I at least had the advantage of some kind of headgear. He didn't.

She was working on impriving Mao's current mech specs and asked for mine opinion on what could we do to keep the units stable.
Dr. Random was really interested in discussing with me integration with real GN-Drive units (despite my smell that is). They not only are a efficient power source, but they work better than a Tesla Drive, so lump of iron (AKA Alt-Aisen) will have more armor and still walk and the Huckbines will really dance around most enemies. Stangely, that was when she commented about haring of another broken trash compactor and I ran back to the ship. She also said thre are some weapons like Boosted Hammer, Neo Chackran Shooter and other weapons that Mao is nearly finishing porduction, we are free to take some with us.

Well, I'm back from Medical. The Doc says that Masaki's gonna have a hell of a goose egg for awhile, but he's not seriously hurt or concussed or anything.

Citan then made a point of asking me what kind of brick wall fell on him in the first place.

Now, I have money to count. If you'll excuse me...

Hey, I'm not the one that decided to move everyone into the main sim chamber instead of the spectator room.

And it's really not my fault the betting tended towards how badly I was gonna get beaten and away from me making a daring escape filled with Loony Tunes hijinks.
Actually... shouldn't be HAPPY? The house won.

Well, all told, this Nabiki Tendo moment worked out pretty well in the end. Not counting Masaki's cut, total profit came to an amazing 6,529 creds. Pretty good for such short notice on the whole thing. Aside from the minor black mar of JayBee's exodus at the end that resulted in a few of us getting hurt and my racketeering partner getting knocked out, today's going pretty good. I seriously doubt there's anything short of an enemy attack that could do anything to ruin my day.

*Turns a corner, stops, and immediately draws his gun*

"....Well, that's a rather....interesting way of introducing yourself."

Zechs Merquise. Funny meeting you here.

"Sorry, but you've got the wrong guy. Milliardo Peacecraft. I'd offer to shake your hand, but..."

*Derek calmly puts his gun away, keeping an eye on Milliardo the entire time*

Sorry. You have a rather...uncanny resemblance to the guy.

"That pilot JayBee mentioned the same thing. Are you also an AGGF pilot who fought Zechs at that battle?"

Sorta. Derek Zerus Barona, mercenary for hire working for the AGGF. I tend to pilot the Gundam Deathscythe in battle.

"....Ah. Then, that would make you...."

You know, it's a really good thing that you're not Zechs. That jerk completely fried 'Scythe's arm with just one shot, and then chased me around with his goons for awhile until I finally had to collapse a cave on top of myself in order to hide out until my reinforcements could show up. If I ever happened to run across him again, say, in an empty hallway on one of the AGGF's battleships, why, I might just consider returning the favor and blowing HIS shoulder halfway off before leaving him to rot in a hole for a few days. So it sure is a good thing you're not him, huh?

"So it would seem. You seem to harbor quite the grudge."

Well, he did make a point of rubbing it in as he did it. Universal law of karma states that he'd really have it coming, after that. Oh hey, look at the time. I gotta get going. Nice meeting you, Milliardo.

"Nice meeting you too, Mr. Barona...."

*Starts to walk off, then stops*

Oh, I should mention. I don't shoot my own teammates, even when I really want to. So don't worry that someone might come up from behind and blow out your kneecaps or anything, even if you totally deserve it. See ya, Zechs.

*Calmly walks away, whistling to himself*

And somehow, my day feels just a wee bit brighter.


Title: Re: AGGF part 2
Post by: Sume Gai on March 30, 2008, 06:06:01 PM
another moment for the AGGF's greatest hits...

Jaybee, I managed to get Shara off your back (It took a lot of bargaining, yelling and a little fisticuffs to do it)

she's probably still not going to be very happy to see you, but I can't get Millia off your back.  (She insists that if you don't come to the sims she'll come to you, with live ammo)

as for paying me back you'll be buying drinks till the Balmarians leave (and maybe even longer)

I also think it would be a good idea if you personally apologized to everyone who you locked in, including Shara (though it's probably best if you wait a bit for her)

He doesn't have to apologize to me, I fully understand what drives a man to flee at high speed away from the hounds of hell barking at his heels. I'll just settle for keeping that share of the cash and call it even.

I DO expect him to apologize to Cybuster when he comes to, though. Masaki took that blow to the skull trying to back me up, and I REALLY don't like it when my wingmen have to take a bullet for my sake. I don't like feeling like I owe anyone for saving my ass. If I do, it means I didn't do a good enough job of keeping it out of the fire.

*Jaybee is walking down the street, doing a bit of window-shopping*
Wait, is that...
*He adjusts himself to blend into the crowd, while focusing on someone coming out of an electronics store*

Of all the silly coincidences... he came to us...

*flicks a comm channel open*
Focker, do you copy?
Mike: "We copy, Jay. What's up?"
Tell Shara and Millia that I love them!
Carol: "YES!"
Shara: "Ummm, is he brain-damaged?"
Millia: "Well, I dunno about you, but it's inevitable for me. Is this body hot or what?."
Max: "H-hey! That's my WIFE you're talking about, buddy!"

Sorry, Mister Jenius. I meant that in a purely platonic, possibly grossly over-stated form.  No offense intended.
Carol: "Awww..."
Geez, carol... just accept that you're the worst matchmaker in history and drop it.

Anyways... call Admiral Kridanik. Tell him target 17 is in Lovell City. I'm trailing him now.
Mike: "You need any backup, Jay?"
No, I can handle this.
"You're sure? I know you guys have a hist-"
Yes, I'm sure! Why does everyone keep asking that? Besides, if we send a team in, he may just fold out again.
"All right. But call us if you need anything."
I will.
Again, my thanks to Shara and Millia. I wouldn't even be down here right now if it wasn't for meltrandi rage. Jaybee out.

*Jaybee sighs*
Ya know, I've been following this guy for a while, and I'm not really sure how to go about capturing him, aside from relying on his overconfidence.

*He looks around at the park, thinking*
Well, not many people here...
It's open enough that he shouldn't feel threatened...
I guess it's as good as I'm gonna get...

*He raises his voice*
Doctor Rodriguez!

*The man turns around*
"Oh, hello. I didn't expect to see you again so soon."

Likewise.

"Care to have a little chat?"

Not particularly. But I don't guess you're gonna stick around otherwise?

"Indeed. Why DO you people persist in trying to capture me? Haven't you realized it's impossible?"

Because we enjoy a challenge. Now what do you want to say?

"Well, honestly, I'm a bit curious. Few people in your organization demonstrate the hatred towards me that you do. Why is that?"

You're familiar with the incident on Savara, right?

"Ah, yes... I seem to recall something about an asteroid drifting into the planet's gravity well and crashing on the main city."

It didn't fall. It was folded into the planet.

"Goodness! I never would've guessed it was malicious! How does that connect me and you?"

Simple. The asteroid was dropped using a miniature fold generator. Not the standard booster used for mecha folds either, though that was your design too.
You're the only person alive to understand fold technology enough to miniaturize it, so you are, naturally, the first suspect. Furthermore, orbital satellites show you appearing on the surface shortly afterwards.

"Yes, well... there were indications of protoculture ruins, and I didn't want to be disturbed during my research. That stil doesn't explain the unique hatred you show."

You killed a planet of 4 million people. Is that enough for you?
"Hey! I only killed 3.8 million! The other two-hundred k lived! And the deaths are far less if we don't score depression-related suicides and secondary injuries such as smoke inhalation. I MAYBE killed two mill-"
SHUT UP!
*Jaybee clenches his fist*
I was born on Savara. I was on Earth in the UNS academy when the asteroid hit, but my family wasn't.

"I see."
*Doctor Rodriguez shrugs his jacket off. A line drops from his right shoulder and across his chest. Above the line is mostly flesh, below it is mostly metal.*
"So you take it a bit personal, then?"

Damn right I do.

"Now, look. You can't catch me. Attack me, and I vanish. I could run off right now and disappear again. But really, we have more important things to worry about."
*The doctor guestores vaguely towards the sky*
"As Admilra Kridanik said, it's time to put aside our differences and fight as allies against the Balmarians. Truce?"
*The doctor holds his right hand out. Jaybee looks at it suspiciously for a moment, then extends his own.*

Deal. So, are we doing the handshake from 10 feet? Because I can't reach that far.
*Jaybee steps forward. The doctor follows.*

"I really didn't think you'd give in this easily."
*Hands meet, the doctor grins as an electrical charge builds in his palm, the look shifting to amazement as it dies back down.*
I didn't give in, doctor.
*Firewalls and attack viruses start clashing across the data link as both men fight for control*
"Lay off, or I fold. "
Yeah right. I'm touching you, that personal fold generator will take me along with you. Speaking of which...
*Jaybee clenches his left hand, and slams it into the doctor's metallic ribcage. Sparks flash from his knuckles as they impact.*
I've gotten enough out of your system to know where to strike.
*A second punch bursts through. A moment later, the fist comes out wrapped around a device roughly the size of a large grapefruit.*

"GIVE THAT BACK! GIVE IT BACK! "

*Jaybee breaks the "handshake" as the doctor regains control of his hand's stunner, flips back about five feet, and throws the contents of his hand onto  the sidewalk. A malicious smile crosses his face as the device shatters.*

"DO YOU KNOW WHAT YOU JUST DID?!?!?!"

Yup. Smashed the only man-portable fold generator in existence. It's a small price to pay.

*Jaybee gestures forward as the doctor steps towards him with rage in his eyes.*

You wanna fight? Man to man? You can still run... oh, wait...

*The doctor screams and rushes at Jaybee*

All right, it's time for a therapeutic beatdOOF!

*Jaybee falls back as a blow lands on his chest*
When did you learn to fight?

*The doctor screams wordlessly as Jaybee adopts a combat stance*

Right, okay...

Let's do this.

*The two begin fighting. Sparks fly as stunner units augment punches with electrical discharges. Jaybee dodges excessively to protect his flesh from the doctor's metallic fists. The combat rapidly wanders around the park amid jumps, flips, and kicks.*
Sheesh... I thought that tin can of yours was geared towards science.
"You wouldn't be the first to underestimate me, and you won't be the last*
*Jaybee lands a blow square on the doctor's chest, damaging the plating and revealing a glowing orange stone underneath*
Jupiros! So THAT'S how you powered that thing!
"What did you THINK I used? Fairy dust?!?!"
 The few people in the park rapidly take note of the violent and flashy fight and call the police. A team arrives as Jaybee executes a footsweep and plants the doctor face-first  on the ground*

Cop A: "FREEZE!"
*Jaybee kneels on Rodriguez's back, holds the man's arms in his left hand, and fishes his wallet out with his right, then flips it to the officer.*
UNSpacey operative.  Lieutenant Jaybee McQuade. I'm taking this man into custody.
"UNS doesn't have any authority here!"
They do where interstellar security is concerned. This man is guilty of numerous attacks to colony worlds, including the Savara and Gryffon incidents.
"We'll be the judge of that. Let him up. NOW."
No, you WON'T be the judge of that. Check my ID. Then stick it in your comm, open a channel to Admiral Kridanik, and ask HIM whether a lieutenant McQuade has the authority to apprehend a doctor Edmund Rodriguez on multiple charges of planetary endangerment, including but not limited to the complete destruction of Savara and Gryffon. THEN we'll see who judges what.

If you want to keep playing tough guy, then YOU get to explain to your boss why there's an angry un-micronized zentradi war hero at the door berating him for letting the most-wanted man in the known galaxy go free. Because he WILL escape.

Cop B: "Uhhh... I think you'd better humor him, boss. The ID looks legit."

Cop C: "Yeah.... I'd rather not be on Britai's bad side."

A: ALL RIGHT!
*A sticks the ID in his comm unit, accesses the card's memory, and opens a channel*
"Hello, Admiral Kridanik.This is the Lovell City police. ... Yes, I know, I'm sorry to bother you. ... We've got a guy down here claiming to be a UNS agent. He's just finished assaulting a man, and he's insisting it's official UNS business.I'm sorry for wasting your time, but his ID's legit, so we have to ask. Do you know a lieutenant Jaybee, and is he currently engaged in activities against an Edmund Rodriguez? ... Yes. .... Yes. ... Okay, I understand. ... Roger. ... I apologize again for bothering you."
*Cop A clicks the comm unit off.*
"Apparently he's on the level. And while we were talking, Kridanik got the precinct on the comm. We're to supply an armed escort back to the dock where the UNS Focker is moored. Lieutenant Jaybee *the cop spits the words* is to be in charge of us until the airlock cycles, at which point the Focker's security team will take over."
Thank you. Your courtesy knows no bounds. Can I have my wallet back?
*Jaybee stuffs it back into his pocket, then drags Dr. Rodriguez to his feet.*

All right, gentlemen. Keep your guns trained on this man at all times. If it even LOOKS like he's about to get free, shoot him. In the head.

Focker, this is Jaybee. I have target 17 in custody, and am returning to the ship. Please have a security team standing by at airlock 1.

fine then,
Shara, you understand that if you even look at Jaybee the wrong way I'll throw you in the brig, and you know I can.

Shara: "yes commander Gai, but I have more important business than Jaybee at the moment..."

Max: "my team is ready Gai"

Mike: "The high security brig is ready"

good lets go.

*Derek casually drinks a soda as he watches the security team go by, fully armed and ready for combat*

Well, that looks fun. I wonder if I should join in....

*At this point, a small yawn draws his attention to the corner of his visor, as two small hands rise up from the bottom of the screen, stretching. A second later, Fuyume pops her head up and rests her arms on the bottom of the screen like it's a counter*

"Ohayo, Derek-sama!"

Good morning, Fuyume. Sleep well?

"Uh huh! That wierd wave thingie put me right out, and I had a really nice dream, too!"

Oh yeah? Tell me about it while we go find an empty comm. I just remembered something I needed to check up on.

"Okay! Well, it started with me and Alex-chan playing on some swings, and I had a body, and then, there were these clouds that she said looked like all of her old friends, and then, I saw one that looked like Fei-chan, and then...."

Remember me, doctor?

Shara: "looks like your past has finally caught up with you."

"his eyes grow even wider before he looks down towards the floor"

good.  Jaybee we're taking him to cell E76 on deck 4

*Jaybee places a hand on the doctor's chest, pulls back a panel, and removes the chunk of Jupiros*
"HEY!"
What, you expect us to trust you with this? Besides, most of your body is powered by more conventional sources.
"YOU DON'T KNOW THAT!"
Sure I do. The airlock has a full sensor suite.

*looks over his shoulder to the cell where Rodriguez is tied to a chair with two solders pointing guns at him along with a dozen Haros of Doom*

we have to ask... why was he in Von Braun city?

I think we should issue an alert and have the authorities search the city


Title: Re: AGGF part 2
Post by: Derek on March 31, 2008, 04:49:04 PM
(I thought it was Lovell City...)

*Finding an empty comm area, Derek casually sits down and starts it up*

Fuyume: And then, the unicorn princess said...

Derek: Hey Fuyume-chan, do you think you can get us a clear line to BW-004?

Fuyume: Huh? Oh, okay! One call to Ha-chan, coming right up!

Derek: Well, that confirmed it for me, right there. Oh, and can you do me a favor?

Fuyume: Whatcha need, Derek-sama?

Derek: Ha-chan and I are probably going to get into a long discussion, once we get the call through. Can you be a good girl and only say hello and goodbye to her?

Fuyume: Hmm...*Nods and smiles* Okay! I'll be a good girl!

Derek: Glad to hear it.

*Fuyume ducks down off the side of the visor as a link is established. A minute or so later, the call goes through, and the person on the other end picks up.*

Haruka: Well, well. Didn't expect something like this. It's not like you to call long distance, Captain.

Derek: I've been doing a lot of things out of my usual rut lately, Haruka. Or I should say, BW-004.

Haruka: *Calmly raises an eyebrow at the remark* Pulling out the old ID code, Captain? Either you're feeling nostalgic, or you didn't just call to see if I could mail order you a drink.

Derek: That second one is closer. I've got a question that needed answering, so I figured the best person to turn to was my old Intel officer.

Fuyume: *Starts to climb back up onto the visor screen, and smiles and waves* Hi, Ha-chan!

Haruka: *Stops for a second as she spots the AI girl* Ah.....I see....

Derek: Yeah. Not that I'm angry or anything, but I felt the need to find out who told Alexis where to find me.

Haruka: *Shrugs* Well, you obviously weren't going to tell her yourself. You disappeared without a trace for two years, Derek. Not a single word to any of us after what happened. Honestly, you're lucky I didn't just go ahead and slug you that day you first walked into my bar.

Derek: I probably would have deserved it, I'll admit. Have you told any of the others?

Haruka: Not yet. I haven't heard from Kanz in over a year, and good luck trying to get ahold of Seiya. She's working on another one of her "projects". Alexis was the only one I was keeping anything even remotely close to regular contact with, seeing as how, you know, you and Rena and--

Derek: Yeah, I get the idea.

Haruka: And even now, you're still running away. You can't even stand to hear his name.

Derek: I don't deserve to. And the less I have to think about it, the better.

Haruka: If you don't face it down, Rena's going to go ahead and kill you one of these days!

Derek: And I'll face that when it happens. Until then, I have more important things to worry about besides my past. For example, this Balmar Empire thing. Heard anything about that?

Haruka: Since the Galaxy Network went down and effectively made this all solely our problem to deal with, it's been nuts. All the remaining military networks I could access from here have been doing into major lockdowns. Couldn't figure out where a Ball was going if I watched it crash into the residential area across town, at this point.

Derek: That must be murder on an information broker's business.

Haruka: Like you'd know, Mr. I-Cash-My-Paychecks-With-Lead. Money's never been a problem, you know that. Not with the kind of salary you were paying. But I'll admit, not having any actual info to sell is definately not helping me any.

Derek: Well, if you feel like losing a few customers, I've got some fake info you might want to let out there.

Haruka: You're getting cryptic, Captain. You know I don't like that any more than you do.

Derek: You and I both know that, even when faced with complete and utter extinction, there are always gonna be assholes out there who think they can come out on top by doing their own thing and being assholes. I think THEY'RE planning do to just that.

Haruka: You're kidding. They're actually doing that up there?

Derek: It wouldn't surprise me in the least to find out that Dark Moon is under the payroll of one of the groups the AGGF has been fighting up to this point. Kanz's old whipping boy Garaz showed up the other day, looking for a fight. Not only that, but they damn near blew me up inside a stolen mobile suit the other day, with a fake message supposedly signed by Rena. As it was, 'Vaun spent a few days in Medical with hearing loss.

Haruka: And knowing the grudge that they have against us, you think a little thing like Ragnarok isn't going to make them want to play nice and get along with everybody. More than that, you figure they're probably gonna try pulling something pretty soon, either by their own initiative and the simple fact that they hate your guts, or because whoever they're working for doesn't want to see you guys succeed, potentially because it would make the AGGF look a little better in the eyes of the people, and maybe even for the simple fact that, yet again, whoever's hiring them just hates you guys and wants you dead.

Derek: That pretty much sums it up, yeah.

Haruka: Alright, I'm listening. What do you have in mind?

Derek: Start spreading some false info through your usual channels. Say we got like, thirty or fourty ships at our disposal so far, and that our plan is to launch from the moon at high speed for the White Star at exactly the last day of the deadline and stuff. I trust you to make things sound convincing.

Haruka: If the wrong people get word of this and figure out that I'm just being your rumor mill, I could be in a lot of trouble. I could still be in hot water if it ever got out that I was the one who helped the AGGF "conquer" Kyris.

Derek: If that happens, you know how to call me, and I know how to break out of prison. You'd be fine.

Haruka: *Smirks a little* You sound sure of yourself. Is this what the famed head of Intelligence in the AGGF is all about?

Derek: The AGGF wouldn't be rescuing you. Just a psycho brother who doesn't want to see part of his family rotting away in a jail cell. I wouldn't even need a giant robot, either. I'd just bring the Hellfire.

Haruka: I'm surprised you still have that. Wasn't the ammunition formula made illegal recently?

Derek: A little thing like the law has never stopped me.

Haruka: Hah! You really haven't changed one bit. Listen, I gotta go, it's almost time for me to open. You two take care of yourselves, alright?

Derek: We will. I'll call you again soon, Haruka.

Fuyume: Sayonara, Ha-chan!

*With that, the connection shuts off. As casually as he sat down, Derek stands up and starts on his way out.*

Fuyume: Where to now, Derek-sama?

Derek: I think we oughta go see how Masaki's doing...

*Talking to Dr. Uzuki*

So it wouldn't take too much of an adjustment to make it work, but it would still be a lot of effort to bring it to the battlefield.

"Still, the Kyrios or the R-1 should be able to handle it."

I wish we had the Heimdall or the Fenrir. Either one would make things so much easier. Still, I knew that I should grab the Kishin Sword before someone else did.

I asked Kirk and he said he was done studying and modifying it so he's willing to return it.

Did somebody call the SRX useless?

Sorry I've been gone for so long; the doctors finally let me out after extensive testing to make sure the T-Link System wouldn't make my head explode. I hear that a lot's been going down lately - something about the Balmar? I don't intend to let Major Plisken's second cousin thrice removed or whoever turn our most powerful weapon into scrap.

Anyways... Lieutenant Ianator, reporting for active duty! Commander Gai, may I request a briefing on recent events?


Title: Re: AGGF part 2
Post by: Sume Gai on March 31, 2008, 09:24:29 PM
it's been rather crazy

I guess I'll start when we beat Bask

we left Bask with Leader, got a new Archangel class ship called the Metatron and then destroyed a project to take over La Gais (Derek caught himself a Valsion Kai which nearly blew up on him)

then we met up with Shara (the Meltradi that tried to kill Jaybee) and the Focker (a large carrier of some class I can never remember) went to Jupiter and used Za Powa to defeat someone trying to create powered up Big Zam Kais.

he (Dr. Rodriguez) escaped but we destroyed the base and headed back to Earth; then the Balmarians appeared and demanded our surrender (in 26 days)

so we headed for Mao and met alot of Megalots along the way (at which time i received six GX-bits and we met up with my old friend Talis.

Talis: pleased to meet you. and what do you pilot?

careful or she'll buy your mech out from under you

moving on, Derek then met with a pink robot which (after a good cry) introduced it self as Fuyume.

now heres where things get real interesting; Max and Millia showed up out of the blue and revealed that they were going to help us.  Then Millia challenged Jaybee to a sim fight and Shara joined in, Jaybee won but then he locked half of us in a room with two angry Meltradi. 

After that Quattro and Milliardo showed up and Jaybee ran. later Jaybee ran into Rodriguez and caught him (he's currently busy with Shara and a dozen Haros of Doom) and I gave doc a modified Fenrir (sorry Andrew it's Doc's personal unit but I'm fitting the Weltall with a GSS)

thats mostly it (I think)


Title: Re: AGGF part 2
Post by: Derek on March 31, 2008, 09:43:57 PM
Derek: Hey guys. Bye guys.

Fuyume:*Waves* Bye bye~!

*At this point, they walk over to Masaki, who's got bandages on his head and a bottle of asprin nearby*

Derek: Hey, Cybuster. How you feeling?

Masaki: *Groans* I'll let you know once I get the number of that brick wall that fell on me. The Doc said I don't have a concussion or anything, at least.

Derek: Yeah, I'm still not sure how. Shara knocked you over at least three seats with that hit. Honestly, I'm just as much in confusion about the complete lack of cranial damage as you are.

Kuro: Two words, meow.

Kuro/Shiro: Thick. Skull.

Masaki: Alright, enough making fun of the injured guy. How'd we do?

Derek: *Pulls out a wad of cash* Just over six and a half large. I already set aside your cut. Sixty forty.

Masaki: Sixty...I thought we agreed on a straight half and half?

Derek: The sixty's yours. I figured you deserved a little something extra after spending the night in here. *Hands over Masaki's cut*

Masaki: *Takes it and starts counting it up* Well, I can't really argue with that kind of logic. Nice eye, by the way.

Derek: Thanks. Millia doesn't pull her punches, either.

Masaki: So, assuming that no one's going to randomly start attacking, what sort of hilarious adventures among the ships and crew should we see about getting into today?

Derek: I dunno. Wanna go find out?

Masaki: Sure.

Ah, ZA POWAH! That explains why I felt so alive last week. Seems JayBee's got quite the knack for running into celebrities as well. The headaches have stopped for the most part, and I'm sure they won't pop up during battle. Oh, sorry to disappoint you, Miss Talis, but I don't actually have complete ownership of anything we have here. Not even the Strike.

Now that I think about it, I've been in the market for a personal mech for quite a while now, and my paychecks have been building up as well. Do you sell as well?

Commander Gai theres a a funny looking guy here to see you. He says he needs "you" to sign off on a delivery it seems to be two creates but, there too small to be MS.

*Masaki wanders by Jaybee*
"Hey! You see this face? You owe me!"

Oh for... it was an accident. How was I to know Millia was gonna blow her top too?
Look, I'm headed to the bar later tonight anyways. I'm gonna have a few for some old friends. The night's on me, alright?
"It's a start..."
Good. Let's get moving.

"So... there's a bit of commotion around lately... you seem to have a history, so I figured you'd be the guy to ask, setting aside a certain simulator incident. Who's the cyborg in the brig?"

Ah, right. You've been off battling evil in another dimension.
"Somethin' like that, yeah."

Well, Edmund Rodriguez used to be a major overtechnology researcher. His crowning glory was deciphering the fold generator. He's probably the only person alive in the galaxy that understands how it actually works well enough to redesign it. The fold booster from Project Supernova was designed pretty much solely by him.

"I see... Obviously, he's not very popular anymore, so I guess the story doesn't end there."

Right. There was an accident during one of the fold booster tests. He got messed up pretty badly, hence the cyborg body.
Turns out his mind got messed up worse.
He was always a bit obsessive about the Protoculture. Seemed like he wanted to know everything he could about them. After the accident, it took over. He thinks he IS Protoculture now. Or some reincarnation of, heir to, et cetera. The point is that he's sure ruling the galaxy is his right, and everyone else is pawns for his amusement.

"This is all very interesting, but can we fast-forward to the part where he starts doing bad things?"

I'm getting there.
First off, you have to know that he kept developing overtechnology after he went coocoo for Cocoa Puffs. He didn't SHARE with anyone, but he's made some incredible advances from all appearances. The one he's best known for is... well, WAS his personal fold generator. He managed to miniaturize a fold generator down to the size of a grapefruit, then integrated it into his cyborg body. It's part of why he's been impossible to catch, since he could fold himself away at any moment.

Anyways, his criminal career started big. He slapped a fold generator on an asteroid and did a colony drop au natural on the frontier world of Savara.  He killed most of the four million people living there, and rendered the planet uninhabitable. As my home world, I take the issue a little personally.
"Oh..."
Apparently, this was all because there were indications of protoculture ruins on the planet. He just wanted to deny them to us. We didn't find that out until later, though.

He became a thorn in the galaxy's side for a while, as any madman with teleportation abilities would. Mostly relatively minor crimes.
Robbery, furnishing weapons to militia groups, that sort of thing. Turned out he had plans beyond being a nuisance.
He came back big after building up a small fleet with the cash he'd made. He took the fleet to Gryphon, and started blasting the place from orbit. It wasn't anything like the zentradi rain of death. He only had about fifty ships. But for a fledgling colony with minimal defenses, it didn't have to be big. In this case, he just wanted to wipe out a small research facility on the planet, and figured it was just easier to blast all 3 cities into rubble than figure out where his target was.

From there it's been one scheme after another. He viewed those trying to capture him as amusements.
He actually  took a great deal of pleasure in making his various schemes double as traps for his pursuers.

The recent incident at Jupiter is a prime example of his standard operating procedure.
Set up a project(in this case, building GN Drives). Set up a front project that's ALSO a real project to cover up the real project(in this case, harnessing The Power to boost the effectiveness of his mechs). Make the project look like someone else's business. Deploy a significant arsenal, and hide an even more significant one elsewhere.
It's not obvious enough to ensure detection, but if it IS detected, someone will take the bait, and he can surprise attack them when they're weakened from fighting through the expected defenses. I'm actually betting the Heavy Metals we fought weren't in the base. I think he folded them into the hangers from outside the system, then launched them from there.

The way he sees it, he can't lose. He has two valuable projects, and he gets to laugh at the "ineptitude" of his attackers.
If his attackers become a threat, he runs. And still gets the amusement. The projects can be restarted elsewhere, in a more discreet manner.
And he always waits until the last minute. I've been within 3 yards of him before. He folded as a threw an EMP grenade.

"Sounds like he overthinks things. A bit of brute force applied earlier could have done wonders."

It's been tried.
He runs. Or used to. He finally got too cocky. He won't be going very far any time soon. Hell, won't be long before he won't be going anywhere ever again.
"Did you just say-"
Anyways... head on to the bar and start running up a tab.
I've got some business in the brig first.
"Uhhh.... are you sure that's a good idea?"
Probably not. But I can't just leave it alone. I NEED to see him accept defeat. He's still talking like this is part of his master plan!
I know you have your own grudges, so humor me.
"Right. Well, I'm gonna make you pay dearly for this headache. Bring your deepest wallet when you get to the bar."


Right, I will.
*snags some random guy walking around, and makes him Masaki's guide*
"Ya know, I AM capable of navigating a hallway by myself."
History says otherwise.

and out of curiosity do you want to try out the 008X?

*Talis comes up behind me*

Talis: Gai I was wondering-

NO

Talis: "but I'm not asking to buy it I want to-"

I knew what you meant and I gave you my answer.  I'm not letting you risk your life for my sake.

Talis: "but you let them fight"

Tallis, they don't fight just for me, whereas you would.  I refuse to let you get any closer to battle than the bridge of the Titus, and even then I don't feel comfortable with you out there.   

Talis: "but--"

please Talis.

Talis: <dejected>"ok"

Jaybee can you loan me one of the hawks to do a docking test with the G-Falcon.

Post by: JayBee on April 01, 2008, 04:31:43 AM
Go right ahead, Chief.
...
Hmmm... if you're looking for a recommendation, see if Rachel's busy. She was expressing interest in some non-VF piloting.




*Jaybee walks into the brig, stops at the forcefield across Rodriguez' cell.*
You look like hell...  So I guess the Doc got down here to pull your weapons?

"Enjoying this little bump in the road you've throw at me, aren't you?"
But of course.

"You DO realize this is temporary, right? With this body, time has no meaning to me. I can wait out any sentence I receive. Or I can just escape. Like always."

Escape might be hard without your usual back door.
And I'm not sure you can wait your sentence out...

"Are you listening? My body is immune to the ravages of time! I can just replace things as they wear out! You can't stop me!"


Oh my...
*Jaybee's mouth twitches into a smile devoid of humor. It's a look more appropriate to a cat playing with a cornered mouse, and one few people have ever seen on him.*
You really DON'T understand. This is... delicious.

Do you know what sort of sentence a colonial sterilization carries?

"It doesn't matter. I can outlive it."

No, you can't. That's the point.
This is an interstellar issue. You don't wind up in some sissy Earth Federation court. And the UN takes few things more seriously than attacks on the colonies.

"You're saying a lot, but not really saying anything."

Okay, let me put it bluntly.
Savara's an automatic death penalty. So's Gryphon. We have more than enough evidence to stick either one to you completely. It doesn't matter how good your defense is.
There's no point even LOOKING at the rest of your rap sheet.
You've apparently been misled into believing the death penalty was completely abolished. It's still around for extreme crimes like genocide.

"Those were ages ago. There's a statute of limit-"
*A harsh laugh from Jaybee interrupts*
Twenty-one years and three months on Savara.  Slightly less than twenty on Gryphon. And there's no statute of limitations on sterilizations, you moron. You should've spent more time studying law and less studying Protoculture.

I don't usually take pleasure in this, but I'm making an exception for you.

You. Are. Going. To. Die.


*Jaybee watches calmly as Rodriguez processes things, remaining still as the doctor's face flickers through several emotions.*


Your best hope is that we lose to the Balmarians. They might find you useful. I doubt it, though.

I've got a date with the past in the bar, so I'll leave you to think about things.
If you believe in a higher power than yourself, I'd start talking to it or them. Though I doubt there's a deity in the universe that would have you.

First thing, welcome back. Second, I was not calling the SRX worthless. What I was trying to say was there are times where the SRX should not be used. Remember the fight against the Q-Raus? When it would be a giant target. Also, when we need speed more than power.

Either way, again I say, welcome back. Let's go to the bar so we can catch up on everything that's happened.

Hey, Andoh! You took another wrong turn or something?

"Uh, maybe. I ran into JayBee, and he led me here. My direction isn't honestly THAT bad, is it?"

Masaki, as a friend, I'm going to be perfectly honest with you. I'm getting you a GPS beacon for Christmas.

"Gee, thanks."

Anytime. So, who's tab are you running up?

"Jay's. That reminds me, was there a board meeting somewhere that decided I was the one who gets to hear everyone's backstories? You and him both seem to like using me for exposition."

It happens. So, where'd he go?

"To go piss off that guy in the brig, I think. You want to help on the tab while we wait?"

Sure. Barkeep, a scotch on the rocks.

Know anything about Ether amplifiers?

Andrew, the GSS mod for the Weltall is ready.

I've given the G-Falcon a test and plan to set it up as a G-Bit before we leave

alright everyone we're heading out the day after tomorrow along with the Titus, the Peacemillion and the Makuro (Max's and Millia's new ship).  Our goal L4.

begin final preparations

Tch...we'll have to steep up work with Infinity Justice, it will be tight, but at least we can leave the final adjustments to after we depart. Also, Dr. Random is asking if you wouldn't mind to leave that GN-Drive we got in her hands, she is really happy thinking of messing around with it, she said it is somethingl ike "showing how it is done  to those stupid EOT lovers"...

Derek: I almost thought we were just gonna take things easy for the rest of the time until Armageddon. Darn. Oh well.

Masaki: Think there's anything else we should be doing to get ready?

Derek: Astronage's had all of my machines except for that Val fixed up to high hell, and they probably made a point at looking at Cybuster, too.

Masaki: What about the Fei-Yen? That hasn't really been looked at, has it?

Derek:*Shrugs* We might as well ask. Fuyume?

Fuyume: *Currently wearing an apron with smiling chibi faces of Masaki and the cats and sweeping back and forth across the visor with a pink broom* Dusty, dusty....Huh?

Derek: Is there anything special about your Fei-chan that Astronage should be aware of if he needs to repair it?

Fuyume: Hmmmm.....Nope! Alex-chan told me the only thing Fei-chan needs to keep going is peace and love!

Derek: In true Alexis fashion. Okay, you can go back to cleaning now.

Fuyume: Okay! *Starts sweeping again* Dusty, dusty....

Masaki: It makes sense to me, cause I was sitting here when she asked if she could start cleaning up all the stuff you have on that visor. But you know anyone else would find that REALLY wierd.

Derek: Probably. I'd have expected you to be flattered by the apron, though.

Masaki: I find it funny, yeah. Anyone would after a few drinks. But I still find it a little wierd that she can turn around and stuff, though. Don't AIs usually just make themselves face in all directions so they can talk to everybody?

Derek: Blame Alex's grasp of personality analysis. It's perfectly fine for an AI to be all smart and omniscient, but no one's really gonna like talking to it. Even if you don't hang out with it more than you have to, humans will pretty much always find themselves genuinely liking an AI that actually seems like another human.

Masaki: Huh. Sounds like the sort of thing that comes from experience.

Derek: From a fourteen year old running around with a group of mercenaries for hire? Yeah, I'm pretty sure it was.

Masaki: Yeah.....*Looks towards the door*...Hey, am I drunk, or did Char just walk into the bar?

Derek:*Looks over*......Well, the jury's still out on that first one, but I'm gonna say yes to the second. Hey, Quattro! C'mon over and have a few with us!

*Ch--Quattro walks over*

Quattro: Blue Wings. I almost hoped I wouldn't run into you. *Looks over at Masaki* ....Is something wrong?

Masaki: Quattro? The hell kind of name is that, seriously?

Quattro: Oh, for the love of--It's an alias, it doesn't have to make all THAT much sense, does it?

Masaki: I guess not. And you're still pulling it off better than Zechs.

Quattro: So it seems. I heard about your little run in with him in the hallway, Blue Wings. *Looks over at Derek* I'm surprised you didn't just go ahead and--Derek.

Derek: Yeah?

Quattro: You have a magical girl sweeping leaves across your visor.

Derek: I'm aware.

Quattro: Do I even want to know why?

Derek: She's my little sister's kid. Promised to look after her for a little while. Fuyume, introduce yourself to the nice shades-wearing man.

Fuyume: *Looks up* Huh? *Turns around and looks at Quattro* Oh, okay! *Transfers over to the ARC projector, broom and apron intact, and bows* Hello! I'm BWAKX-FEI-1 Fuyume-chan! Nice to meet you! *Smiles and waves*

Quattro: Quattro Bajeena. And before anyone says otherwise, no, I don't know a guy named Char Aznable. The resemblance is purely coincidental.

Fuyume: Okay! Please be good friends with Derek-sama and Masa-chan! *Moves back over to the visor and continues sweeping*

Quattro: Well, she certainly has manners.

Derek: I blame her mother. So, you gonna stand there all day, or do you want to sit down and help us run up JayBee's tab?

Quattro: Well, since you asked so nicely...*Sits down* Scotch on the rocks.

Masaki: Hey, what a coincidence. One shades-wearing blonde drinking scotch with another.

Derek: Almost. The big difference is that I'm not hiding my identity. That, and this thing's perscription.

Quattro: Explains why you're wearing it inside. You have to admit, a blue visor covering the entire upper half of your face does draw attention. The wing-like things on the side don't help.

Derek: I'm going to take your word for that, considering your experience with masks. Now, since your drink is here, I propose a toast.

Masaki: Yeah?

Quattro: This'll be good.

Derek: Gentlemen, to the upcoming battles. May we kick ass, take names, and most importantly, look real cool doing it. Cheers!

Masaki: Good enough for me!

Quattro: I'll drink to that.

*The three of them chink their glasses together, and go for it*

Fuyume:*Smiles* Kampai!

Post by: JayBee on April 01, 2008, 09:35:07 PM
Ugh, my head hurts...
What did I DO last night?

"I believe it's described as getting totally shit-faced."
Shara?
*looks around*
Okay, this IS my quarters, so... let me rephrase that.
What THE HELL did I do last night?

"Don't flatter yourself. I dragged you out of the bar before your liver exploded and showered everyone around you with bits of booze."

Aww, c'mon, I'm sure it wasn't that... what's this?
"It's a partial list of what you drank last night."

Holy CRAP! Why HASN'T my liver exploded?

"From what I heard of your drunken ramblings, you have an artificial  toxin filter in your system, and you were busy trying to overload it so you could get, quote, properly drunk. You also refused to leave the bar because, quote, if I stand up I'll fall down, so I need to keep sitting here."

That'd be funny if it wasn't me...

"You ALSO ejected the contents of your stomach all over me after making that statement."

Ah-ha... and you let me live?

"I'm not in the habit of killing allies. Nor people that can't fight back. I WAS hoping I could at least knock you back into unconsciousness when you woke up, but it looks like I could kill you with a feather duster right now."

So you sat here all night JUST so you could punch my lights out?

"Well... there was also some medical concern. But apparently you aren't allowed in the medical bay when you're inebriated, unless you're ALREADY showing signs of a life-threatening problem. So someone HAD to stick around. And since I was the poor sap that dragged you out of the bar, you were declared my responsibility. "

Stupid Doc... start one drunken brawl in the infirmary and he holds it against you forever.

Sorry about that.
...
And about the shirt.
...
Is there anything else I should apologize for?

"Not to me. I believe you threatened to eat Kuro, though. I've been told he deserved it, but it was still a threat made in poor taste."
Ku... ro?

"Masaki's cat... the black one. He is apparently an angry drunk."

I know who he is.... I was just making sure I heard right... wait, the cat was drunk? Should I ask WHY the cat was drunk?

"Based on my experience, I would say no. Besides, even if you DO ask, I don't have the slightest idea."

Right... anything else?

"You have a simulator session in thirty minutes. You seem to have challenged Milliardo Peacecraft to a not-rematch. Your words."

Ugh.... I wonder if he'll take a raincheck...
I guess I better get cleaned up. I think I needed to mend some bridges with him anyways.

"Oh, and consider us even for recent events."
*Shara waves towards the Blowsperior*

I must still be drunk... it looks like my motorcycle is pink with red polka dots. And parked in my quarters.

"Flowers, actually."

Beg pard?

"The polka-dots are red flowers. It's MY Death Blossom. Bye, now."
*Shara leaves quickly*


Ya know, I really oughta be a lot more pissed off about this.
But having that bitch Rodriguez in the brig kinda makes everything seem not so bad.

*stumbles into the sim*

Ahhh.... Milliardo, was it?

"You're late. Though honestly, I'm surprised you showed up at all."

Sorry. It was a bad evening.
Look, we seem to have gotten off on the wrong foot.
"I believe you called me a bucket-head."
Actually, that was Quattro. The guy with the huge sunglasses. Or maybe Char. It's hard to tell.

But that's beside the point. The point is you came here to offer your assistance, and I was a bit of an ass when I took the call.
I owe you an apology, mister Peacecraft.

"Consider it accepted. ... Are you still up for the sim battle, or 'asswhooping part two' as you so eloquently referred to it?"

Ahhh.... I apologize again, mister Peacecraft. I seem to have been quite a bother to EVERYONE last night.

"You threatened to eat someone's cat... and I'd swear the cat dared you to try it. ... I think you aren't the only one that had too much to drink."

Naw, that's just Kuro.
Masaki's cats DO talk. It's best not to ask how.

So... let's do this.
"Can you really put up a decent fight in this condition? I'd prefer not to abuse an invalid."

It would be a great dishonor to this ship's namesake if I couldn't fight with a raging hangover.
You have a mech chosen?

"There seems to be a modified Queadluun Rau in your database with a human-sized cockpit. That sounds interesting."

Oooooh, I hadn't realized we had that in the sim.
Make it two of 'em.

"By the way... if I WERE to adopt a pseudonym, hypothetically speaking... what advice would you give me on hiding my identity?"

*Jaybee grins*
Do something with the hair, Milliardo. It's FAR too distinctive. Cut it, braid it, blow it into an afro, anything.

"I see... I hadn't, errr, wouldn't have thought of that. "
Never too late to learn, right?

*Jaybee hops into the sim*
Let's do this.

Ah, just one question first. What do they use Ether amplifiers on again? All I've been hearing about lately are GN Drives and ZA POWAH. (Though that second one isn't such a bad thing...)

a Ether amplifier is a device used in conjunction with a Ether Machine to allow the pilots effectively use Mana, Prana, Chi, Ether or or other sorts of ablittlys that the pilot has(these skills are aether innate or learned though training) a Ether Amplifier is simply a device that amplifies the pilot’s own Ether, ect, ect enough to effect a gear-sized foe

once people who could use ether where a dime a dozen but, after the loss of the Zophar the power of ether seemingly disappeared from the universe but there are still a few who can use ether


Title: Re: AGGF part 2
Post by: Ianator on April 02, 2008, 01:34:13 AM
Okay, that Ether. Yeah, I did some work on an Elemental a few years ago. Now we just need to figure out how to get the R-Blade to run off its pilot...

Andrew, I'm well aware of what you want but due to the R-1's variable structure we can't add an either amplifier; Kirk says he has been able to reproduce them but they are too big for th R-1.

all our supplies are loaded; now, anyone else need anything?

You guys oughta be glad my ARC has a video recorder. I, on the other hand, still find the love ballads thing a little creepy, even for Cybuster. Particularly since Shiro's the male.

More likely than you think. I-Fields have been coming into fashion lately. Lots of beam weapons seems to work better against someone with, say, Phase Shift armor.

Well, I've checked around. Most of the ships are reporting all ready to go, and all of our mechs are set. If anyone's got anything else they want to take with us, now's your chance. Oh, and something else, since I'm thinking about it. I'm switching my theme song. Falling Down's great and all, but it's pretty high power for a basic theme. I'll probably save it for serious situations, but this is my new one.

Fire-Leo 05P "SYRINX" http://gh.ffshrine.org/song/4861/14

We're ready to go at any time, Commander. Just give the word, and maybe a roster update as well.

"Derek-sama, are you sure you don't have a hangover after last night?"

Not in the least. Now, let's go see where Masaki stashed all that asprin he was carrying, shall we?

"Hai!"

Post by: Tyria on April 02, 2008, 05:24:15 PM
All right, the Infinity Justice is loaded, we had to work all night but it still needs some minor repairs that we didn't have time to finish as well as putting the armor back in place, so it will take some 2 or 3 days to be fully functional, but the vital upgrade is finished.

Actually you don't need to IF you are skilled enough to control most of the functions by your self. Dinah and Fury mechs are quite similar in controls (I just can't use Dinah at full power without something that can withstand massive G forces).

It's something we can do after this fight since I would prefer to do it near Mao or home since then we can record everything. I would prefer if the target of our test run would be the Media Locus because it's AI so it can things that a human body wouldn't be able to withstand i.e. my reasons why I can't pilot Dinah at 100% by myself.

Yeah. The Jeniuses are in hanger 3 getting things tuned now.
They said to relay their thanks.

Mike, you have the bridge.
Hanger 4, get the Omega One ready!

Max, Millia... you guys up for a challenge?

"Of course."
"You should know us better than that."

Right. Point delta-seven seems to have the thickest concentration of enemies in our area. You two thin that herd while we take the stragglers. I'll give you a heads-up if I see anything more impressive than bugs.

All right.

Focker's got plenty of ammo and re-mass, and I believe Admiral Kridanik's ship has an even larger amount.

"I had it restocked shortly before I came to join you. It should last us for several months. I saw no reason to wait for a complete load."

That's what I figured. Take a battleship intended to run by itself for years at a time on a quick assault run, and you're good to go for a while.

Alright, I'll be right behind you. That reminds me, you never did give me an exact model number on that thing.

"It's SRV-14-A, why?"

Ah. Alright.

...Wait, that's the original model number! How the hell--

"Fei-chan, launching!"

Gah! How the hell did Alexis get ahold of one of those things, anyway?

"Hey Derek, you better catch up, or we're gonna have all the fun!"

Hey, Britai... you couldn't have brought them a pair of 1Js? Just to keep the playing field a bit more even?

Well, that's one group of bugs down. Took longer than I thought it would. They aren't getting any easier, but they're not really getting any HARDER, either. There are just more of them.

*Looks around*

...Huh. While I was dealing with them, it appears the fleet actually passed by me. Either we're hauling ass, or the Jeniuses are seriously clearing the path up ahead. Probably both. Still, I wasn't expecting to drop into the rear that quickly. I better catch up, for now. I can worry about kills when I'm not getting left behind.

"Leaving so soon, Black Wings? We didn't even get to say goodbye!"

Oh, for the love of--My luck isn't THAT bad, is it?

*On cue, a squad of about ten black mechs show up from the direction of the moon. This time, two of them are in Barrelion Vs, three are in Tauruses, two in Marasais, and two in Zssas, while the lead unit remains a Guarlion Custom. They quickly close range with the Deathscythe. At this point, Rival by Mintjam starts playing*

....Yeah, I guess it is, isn't it. You seem to have recovered pretty quickly after last time, Garaz.

"You got lucky last time, Barona. If I'd have known you'd pull a stunt like that in a Gespenst, I'd have blasted you right from the beginning."

Yeah, like I haven't heard that one before. Here for a rematch?

"You catch on quick. Me and the boys here are gonna finish you off this time!"

Sorry. As much as I'd love to just go ahead and school you again, I've got a date somewhere else. Maybe next time, alright?

"You wouldn't happen to be talking about your friends over in that fleet, would you? The ones getting further away from us by the second?"

Uh, yeah actually, I would. They ARE going pretty fast, actually.

"Looks like your date's just ditched you, Black Wings. I guess you've got rotten luck with women, huh?"

.....Well, screw it. Now you just pissed me off. You guys wanted a fight with me, you've got it. Let's dance.

*sighs*
Ya know... those three are never gonna be able to catch up to us if we don't do something. I can't believe they had that much delta-v in their mechs to start.

Focker, hard-
What the HELL was that?

*a large red, white, and blue mech flashes by, carrying a big-ass green blade*
Is that...
"Tenjou Tenja Nendou Musou Ken!!!!!!"
*A Zssa blows up real good*

*Jaybee smacks the comm button*
Ryusei! It's been a while!  How come no one told me the Banperios was finished?!?!
"Hey, Jay! Uhhh... long story short, the Banperios ISN'T finished. But it's close enough for the moment, as you can see."
*The mech leaps off of a large rocket booster it apparently rode out from the hanger on*

Rai: "Captain Lefina should be catching up with us shortly. Hagane's running about a day behind her."

Ryusei: "T-LINK BLADE KNUCKLE!"
*The Banperios batters a Barreliion, which stays together through some miracle*

Aya: "We would've gotten to the Moon before you left, but the DC remants decided to raise a fuss on Earth. Hiryu and the Hagane both had to delay departure to put them back down. And Hagane stayed behind to deal with the obligatory attack during orbital lift."

*Ryusei sighs* "You know how that goes."

Yeah... You can't leave Earth without getting in a shooting match. I think the Feddies made that a law recently.
So,tell me... what's up with the booster? Were you guys riding that thing JUST to get to the fight before we blew everything up?

Rysuei: "Eh-heh... maybe a little."
I'm surprised no one vetoed that. Is this goof rubbing off on you two?

Anyways, you three have great timing. Derek and Sakura there are gonna need a lift as soon as they clean that mess up... unless you wanna do it for them.
Ryusei: "Nah. I'd hate to hog all the fun."
*The Banperios punches the damaged Barrelion, finishing what it started a moment ago*
Rai: "Which is secret code for this idiot here's already drained most of our energy reserves."

Aya: "Honestly, I don't think they need our help, except for the ride. It's only ten... well, four mechs now."

True.

Say, did you wave to the Macross as you flew by? Figured someone should stay behind to watch the Moon, just in case. Britai managed to load it up with some VF-11s before he left. Sure they're getting a little dated, but he got a LOT of them. I don't really want to know where he found all the pilots, though.
...
Actually, the Hagane probably oughta stop at Luna too. Better not to put too many eggs in one basket.


I'll talk to y'all after the Hiryu catches up.

Derek: *Dodging shots left and right* Better to have some backup than none, I guess. Good luck to you if you can find an opening.

Garaz: Sonic Breaker!

Derek: *Turns to look* What the--Gah!

*Derek tries to dodge the charge, but can't quite make it in time. As a result, the Guarlion's charge takes off Deathscythe's left arm and wing, leaving it crippled.*

Derek: *Winces* Dammit! Cheap son of a--

Garaz: Hah! What's wrong, Black Wings? Not used to fighting someone with actual skill?

Derek: *Shrugs* You're an idiot, Garaz. Kanzaki could kick you around on his worst day, so what makes you think a little thing like losing an arm is gonna stop me?

Garaz: *Smirks* You talk a good game, Black Wings. Too bad for you, that's all it is. But don't worry. I'll send you to see your partner soon enough, and then you two can talk all you want in the afterlife!

??????: HEART BEAM!!!

Garaz: What the-- *Turns to look*

*A Heart Beam shot passes mere inches away from the Guarlion's front, shooting straight past it and connecting with a Zssa instead. While Garaz might have been lucky enough to not be harmed, the unfortunate Neo Zeon mech is completely destroyed by the attack.*

Garaz: W-WHAT?!? Who the hell did that?!?

??????: I did!

*Fei-Yen jets onto the scene and stops directly between Guarlion and the Deathscythe, bowgun aimed directly at the crest on the Guarlion's front.*

Fuyume: And if you think for a second that I'm gonna let you lay a hand on Derek-sama, you've got another thing coming!

Garaz: Y-you! You're that clockwork doll from before! So, another dog tied to Barona's leash, huh? I should have guessed.

Fuyume: I am not a dog, you obnoxious loser!

Garaz: Obnoxious?!? Why you little...!

Derek: Hey Garaz, word of advice.

Garaz: What is it?!?

Derek: *Leans over and fires the head vulcans right past Fuyume into the Guarlion's frame* Don't ignore the angry guy with a beam scythe.

Garaz: Gah!

Derek: And if you call my niece a dog again, I'm going to make sure they can't even identify the blood stains.

Garaz: Y-you miserable little....

Derek: That doesn't sound like "I'm sorry Mr. Barona, please don't kill me in a spectacular manner." Fuyume, I believe it's time we show Wyvern here just how the Blue Wings family deals with people who insult them. Ready?

Fuyume: *Activates her beam sword* Hai, Derek-sama.

Derek: Good. *Raises his beam scythe* Any last words, Garaz?

Garaz: Y-you....*Looks around*..you...Retreat! All units, let's get outta here!

*Garaz and the remaining enemies immediately start hauling ass as fast as they can back towards the moon*

Derek: *Cracks a grin as the scythe dies out* I love that psych warfare. That moron practically lost his lunch at the thought of fighting both of us at once.

Fuyume: Uh huh. Wimp. C'mon Derek-sama, you need to get back to the ship.

Derek: Yeah, that sounds really good right about now. Let's go, guys.

Fuyume: And, Derek-sama?

Derek: Yeah?

Fuyume: Am I really part of the Blue Wings family?

Derek: Of course you are. Why wouldn't you be?

Fuyume: You really mean it?

Derek: Yeah, I do. I don't say stuff like that lightly.

Fuyume:......

Derek: Something wrong?

Fuyume: Hearing that....just makes me so HAPPY!!!! *Immediately turns around and glomps the Deathscythe, sending it into a spin*

Derek:GAH! No balance! No balance! FUYUME!!!!!!

Derek, Sakura; the Titus should be just ahead we'll let her give us a ride back.

Ryu, Rai, Aya good to see you're doing well.  Sorry but we're just passing through you guys have other missions to deal with.

Ryu: " come on Gai-"

sorry man, you'll be on Luna and then head for L5; we might join you later but it depends on what happens around L4.

*Has finally managed to detach Fuyume from himself, though he continues his wild spinning*

I don't care who's doing what. All I care about is that I need a lift. And maybe for someone to stop me. Most of my regulation and movement systems got wasted by that damned cheap shot.

*Fuyume calmly floats over and grabs the Deathscythe at just the right time to stop it's momentum*

"Better, Derek-sama?"

Very. Thank you, Fuyume.

"No problem!"

Derek, Sakura make yourselves comfortable it will take 2-3 hrs  to catch up to the rest of the fleet.  Talis did you check the 'scythe? 

Talis: "yes and I'm sorry Derek, it can't be fixed till we reach somewhere with better facilities, if at all."

well I guess you'll have to use something else for the time being.  I did some rearranging and managed to put the Valsion in the Duragriez hanger if you want to use that or if you think you can handle it I'll let you use the 008X

Title: Re: AGGF part 2
Post by: Derek on April 04, 2008, 01:48:27 PM
If we can, let's see if we can get 'Scythe moved over to the Peacemillion. Ze--Milliardo's probably got the best chance of anyone of having it fixed, seeing as how Howard's pretty used to working on these things. It'll give him a chance to do a tune-up, anyway. I don't know what the guys at Mao were doing, but 'Scythe shouldn't have been so easily disabled like that.

And don't worry about the 008X, Commander. I had Shining transfered over to the Duragreiz before we left. Between him and Alex, I should be fine for now. I'll take a look at the Val when I get back over there.

C'mon, Fuyume. We need to get back over to the Dura before something happens. Like Masaki and an unmarked corridor.

"Hai, Derek-sama. Do you want a ride?"

You don't have room in there for a pilot, do you?

"I've got just enough room for one passenger. It's a little cramped, but..."

Alexis must have seriously toyed with this thing's design in order to add that. But hey, it's better than nothing. Let's go.

"Okay! Watch your legs...."


Title: Re: AGGF part 2
Post by: Sakura77 on April 04, 2008, 04:30:44 PM
The test is done Chaostic we have enough data. Derek perhaps someone deliberately tampered with 'Scythe to cause such a problem since you say that you have a lot of enemies.


Title: Re: AGGF part 2
Post by: Andrew on April 04, 2008, 04:42:09 PM
That's a scary concept, Sakura. It would mean that someone either on this ship or at Mao, either way, people who should be our allies, messed with the DeathScythe Hell, under our noses.

Does that not worry you?


Title: Re: AGGF part 2
Post by: Sakura77 on April 04, 2008, 05:06:19 PM
I'm worried but, as there is nothing I can do about it at the moment other than sending a e-mail to Mao to find out exactly what they did to 'Scythe. The only other thing I can think of is there was something extra added to Garaz's weapons to do such a thing.

"We're here, Derek-sama!"

Thank LUNA.

*Fuyume gets inside the Duragreiz hangar, walks over to her spot, and opens the cockpit hatch. Derek climbs out, and then proceeds to pop every single bone in his body back into place. Loudly.*

I will never made fun of yoga masters ever again.

"Derek-sama, is it okay for your spine to have done that?"

Not in the least. Now c'mon, we need to get to the bridge. My radio's only one-way, so I couldn't respond to the others while they were making useful commentary about whether or not I was sabotaged.

"Okay!"

Alright, now that I'm back. No, don't get up for me, Bright. I'm fine. Alright, so now that I've had time to think about it, Sakura might have the right idea. I was going neck and neck for kills against frelling CHAR when we were at Jupiter, but I barely managed to kill twenty some odd bugs here at the moon, and doing so left me so far behind that I actually needed a ride just to catch up. Plus, one love tap from that asshole Wyvern and I lost power to damn near everything except my other arm. If that's not signs of something being screwed with, I don't know what is.

So, yeah. I need my Gundam sent over to the Peacemillion. Howard couldn't dress formal to save his life, but I'm starting to think I shouldn't trust anyone else with the thing. And I definately trust him to be capable of fixing G's "masterpiece". Plus, if there's anyone here more likely to spot tampering in the thing, I'd like for them to speak the hell up now, so that I may find them and slap them for not speaking up sooner.

"It's not that..."

Then what is it?

"I, um, get really nervous about singing in front of other people...."

Heh...I see. Can't blame you. I don't sing for a crowd, either.

"Yeah, but you were singing along with Neppu Shippu Cybuster the other day. And it sounded really terrible!"

And that would be why I don't sing for a crowd.

Derek I had Talis do a full inspection and she found that most of the motivators were fired by a cascade failure.  The cause was definitely some kind of special weapon, .beyond that you have some frame damage where you got hit.


Title: Re: AGGF part 2
Post by: Derek on April 04, 2008, 09:26:01 PM
Oh, believe me when I say I don't doubt that Garaz added a little something extra to that Breaker. Nevertheless, I want Howard to give 'Scythe a lookover while he's fixing it.

Speaking of, I do suppose I need to give Milliardo a call.

"There's not much need for that, Mr. Barona. We do keep the channels open, after all."

Gotta love that fleet-wide communication network. So, I assume you know that I'm currently in need of your mechanic from Margaritaville.

"So I've heard. Tell me, though. Why in the world should I go out of my way to help you, after our previous encounter? You were pretty hostile towards me for no reason at all, and yet, here you are now, asking for a favor?"

You're a Peacecraft, alright. Okay, fine. I'm a reasonable mercenary. I suppose I owe you an apology for drawing a gun on you before the introduction. And for making a thinly veiled threat that I would carry out some sort of brutal violence on your person as revenge for an encounter with someone who....MIGHT.....not have actually been you. I refuse to apologize for whistling as I walked off, though.

"That's a start, at least. Alright, I'll have the Deathscythe brought onto my ship so Howard can take a look at it. It'll probably take a few days for him to repair it, though."

(I hate you so much and wish you shared your sister's need to indulge in assisted suicide.) That's fine. Take your time. Oh, and Milliardo?

"Yes?"

I just want to say (die a slow painful death) thanks. I guess I was wrong about you. (If I ever get the chance I'll make sure to kill you twice.)

"It's no problem, really. We're on the same side, after all."

Yeah, the same side...

Derek: Good. And while I'm thinking about it. Hey Commander, you think we can get an update on what all we've got to work with for this one? Better to know ahead of time what we've got going for us.

Bright: I'm still surprised she connected with the Duragreiz's system so easily.

Derek: Compatible connection systems and a programmer who watches too much anime. Good combination if you know what you're doing. Just be glad we don't have holo-projectors on this ship. As much as I'd enjoy the cape and the lightsaber, I don't think you guys want to rename this ship to Swordbreaker.

Masaki: Wow, there's an old reference. You watched that show?

Derek: Alexis has the entire series on her laptop. I didn't have a choice.

Masaki: I see. You sure you're not a closet otaku?

Same thing we did with the Ginns, Granas knows however many we stole.
Found a deep dark crevasse in the armory and shoved them in.


We're not hard up for gear. Just pilots.

As we learned in Space War 1, there's a VERY effective strategy you can use on large nigh-impenetrable space fortresses.
We've got enough hardware to provide the Macross an escort, unless more ships start showing up.
And the Macross usually has a stock of reaction warheads aboard it "just in case."

Without knowledge of the ships' internal plans, we can't GUARANTEE a kill on either one, but...

A couple hundred nukes detonating in the chewy candy center instead of pelting against the crunchy outer shell, possibly followed by a barrier overload wave... I think it's safe to assume some serious damage will be dealt.


But it's hard to do twice in one day. Hell, it's hard to do twice to anyone that sees it the first time.

I believe the logic is that you're not supposed to see it more than once.

And I wonder, personally. The Macross idea is, by far, the most insane and therefore logical idea we've had yet, but it's a pretty risky gamble. The Aerogaters have obviously been watching us for some time now, right? Meteor 3 and all that. Do you think it's possible that they're aware of how things went during SW1? The Macross tends to have a pretty long history with the tactic of busting it's way through the hull and wrecking the place from the inside. I mean, I recall from a few of the records that the Zentradi actually started planning for it after it became a regular thing. You think these guys might expect the possibility?

Suicidal as it sounds, it could actually be safer to the fleet as a whole for a much smaller group to give that plan a shot. Sneak/blast our way in, find the closest it has to a core or control center, and then drop the nukes and get the hell out. Crazy, sure, but I think we're used to that by now.

Jaybee I think it might work, but not with the Macross itself...

Max, how fast can that new ship of yours get here?

Max: "If there is a relatively clear area it could fold here in about half an hour; with conventional  thrust about 2 days."

A Daedalus or ARMD Attack is a whole different kinda crazy than a Macross Attack. :)
The extent of countermeasure planning for a full-ship intrusion pretty much boils down to "keep the crazy kamikaze humans OUTSIDE the hull."
And thus, this tactic will likely result in them throwing everything they have at one ship as soon as we send it accelerating on a collision course.
With the barrier engaged, we can't use beam weaponry, so we'd be dependent on an escort for defense.

An omnidirectional barrier removes the need to outrun an insanely huge explosion or play with timers and risk being foiled.
You just kick in the barrier and let it eat fire until the inevitable overload sends out a counter-wave and tears anything left to shreds. Sure you fuck your barrier generator twelve different ways in the process, but... it's safe and easy.





Hey, chief, if we've got another ship with the proper equipment, why not try doing two of them at once?


Actually...
Admiral Kridanik, was the Death Pickle ever refit with a barrier system?

"I'm afraid not. It's too reliant on beam weaponry. An active barrier system renders it defenseless, ironically."

Ah well...

And none of our other ships  have the proper shield technology.
It's better in a lot of ways, and I'll be the first to admit that the systems used by Spacey ships have some major flaws. But for sheer damage absorption in extreme conditions you just can't beat UNS barriers.
The Kurogane could make it inside with that absurd drill on it's bow. IF we knew where it was.
But I'd be seriously worried about it getting back out before all hell broke loose. Suicide missions don't appeal to me.

Jaybee you do remember what Max said the new battleship is right?

about the simultaneous attack we have one problem; besides the Hagane and Hiryu most of the EF is still running around like a gaggle of headless chickens.  and we don't have enough forces to protect both ships.

now then, I've been going over our observation data for the Twin Stars and it looks like this one is a giant factory ship with no living caretakers it just sits there producing megillots

I vote we trash it before the White Star because the longer it sits here the worst things get for us

I vote we destroy it as soon as possible simply so Tyria can't get to it.

You know, if what I remember of the effect of a barrier overload still happens, there's an entirely possible chance that we wouldn't even need the nukes. Just punch in there and wait for them to try breaking through.

Well, maybe. How much damage do you think a barrier overload would do from the inside of a space colony, anyway?

In the hands of someone good enough, Phys is damned good, with or without a nuke option.

Having that nuke at our disposal, however, will make things much easier for us down the road. As in, far enough ahead that we can blow that thing to hell before Tyria ever gets near it.

*hears Tyria's fangirling*

I guess that's the best place to get our big boom, then. I also came upon some plans for a more conventional missile system for the Physalis - if we manage to get a hold on the bugger, I'll be able to make it all the more useful in the long run.


Title: Re: AGGF part 2
Post by: Derek on April 07, 2008, 10:07:08 PM
We *DO* have ahold of the bugger. I stole Bask's back when we hit the mines. We just don't know where it went since.

"Found it!"

Correction, we know exactly where it went. Where'd it go?

"Someone packed it into Dura-san's cargo hold along with the Lion-sans. I guess they figured we weren't gonna use it again."

Well, at least we know where it is. Now, excuse me while I go light a fire under someone's ass to get it unpacked.

"Derek-sama, we don't actually have any room left in the hangar for it."

Not true. We're free a space now that 'Scythe's over on the Flying Wing. Besides, there are more than enough other machines not seeing use. I'd have just traded one anyway.

"Okay, if you're sure...."

Take a look through the lab records involving Tyria. I think you'll understand just how sure I am. Now, I need to go unpack Duke Nukedam. Keep an eye on things here for me.

"Okay."

Jaybee you do remember what Max said the new battleship is right?
Basically a hybrid of the Space Noah and New Macross classes, right? With a Kurogane-style bow?

It's one of the two ships I'm scoring as capable of that sort of attack, the other being the original Macross.



'S a good point about splitting the fleet up. That double-hellfire stunt was more wishful thinking than anything else. I needed the reality check.
...
Reality sucks.

Yeah... I'm really disappointed at how little response we've gotten.

No offense to Milliardo or Quattro, but a single battleship, 2 high-end mechs, and a double fistful of the garbage most people mass-produce isn't quite the response I was hoping for.

"It can't really be helped. The DC remnants have lost sight of their original goal, and they're trying to take over in the chaos. We're fighting on two fronts."

I guess you're right. There's not much we can do about it.
*Jaybee reaches up to scratch his shoulder, then spins around as he draws his laser pistol from a shoulder holster*
Now would you mind telling me who the hell you are before I cauterize your neck?

"You can call me Gilliam Yaeger."

I can call you that? Or that's your name? Because I've had it up to here with pseudonyms.

"It's the only name I use. Though you probably won't find much. I'm new to the area."

You're from one of the colony planets, then?

"You could say that. Do you ALWAYS threaten your new allies."

Most of them don't show up unannounced behind me on the bridge.
*Jaybee lowers the pistol, keeping it ready*
So you've come to lend a hand? I don't guess there's a cloaked carrier anywhere nearby.

"I'm afraid I can't do anything about your ship shortage, though I've seen smaller forces than this come through worse conflicts."

What, Space War 1? The Grand Cannon was kinda useful, and construction of those was abandoned.

"That wasn't what I meant. Anyhow, I brought my own mech."

Well, another guns is always handy. What ya riding?

"A Gespenst RV."

*Jaybee's mouth twitches as he tries to decide whether to laugh at the man or bang his head against the wall*

A Gespenst... figures. RV, huh? You stickercharge it or something?

"You're remarkably rude."

It's been a long week. And your entrance isn't exactly earning you any goodwill.

"Whatever. Your maintainence team is looking over my mech right now. One of the guys down there was curious, and I'm sure at least one other is screening the unknown machine for booby traps. You can talk to them instead of mocking me. I'd prefer you find me some quarters so I can get some rest, though I'll be glad to head off to another ship in the fleet instead. "

*Jaybee sighs and puts his pistol away*

I'm sorry. I'm just making excuses for taking my irritability out on you.

Welcome to the Alliance.
*Jaybee offers a handshake*

And I think I WILL talk with the guys in the hanger. If they were interested in it, you've probably got something as far from a standard Gespenst as humanely possible.

The the Iron 7 will be here within the day and all we need now is a plan.

the plan I'm considering involves the SRX, Iron 7 and 008X breaking the barrier from one side and drawing the enemy's attention (along with most of our other units) and then from the opposite side the DX and GX-bits will launch a simultaneous Satellite System attack.

after that if they are still fighting (and have big enough pieces left) we'll resort to reaction weapons and any other means.  (if this is the plan I decide on I'll go into specifics later)

Bright: Well, we didn't actually register any signs of a fight. And the bugs don't travel alone.

And by the way, sorry Commander Gai, while you talked to with Bright and the others I was to NOT pick Megirot parts and bring them anywhere home, even for a joke, you just forgot to tell me (OoC:I think I wasn't paying attention when I read that part, sorry!), wouldn't disobey such a direct order from you, maybe if it came from Derek...

But, I made sure I knocked out that Megirot and crushed the control center in the head of the Megirot so it didn't transmit anything, I'm not sure what Bright caught or not, but I disabled it before bringing home. Knocked it fast without using any energy weapons before it fired (damn thing tried to ram me, I punched the head untill it's functions ceased), so chances are there was no battle signals to be detected!
Don't go chunking at me that 30 Megirots came after us just because of that, as far as I know, our fleet isn't exactly stealty! It would be a wonder if the Earogaters DON'T know where we are!!

It's because I'm the loudest voice that I'm backing off, Quattro. Gives the others a chance to really be heard.

"If you're sure. But, aren't you supposed to be on duty? Seems rather unprofessional that the commanding officer for the ship is in the bar instead of on the clock, even for you."

Worst case scenario, he's with the Divine Crusaders. And from what little I can tell, he actually fought quite actively against them up to the defeat of Bian Zoldark and Maier Branstein.

It'd be pretty bad if UNS wasn't aware of the Agressors, but I suppose there's a possible reason.  Maybe their current focus on the colony planets has left them a tad deficient in Sol system intelligence.

So, just for the sake of asking, what HAVEN'T you been a part of in the past, Commander?

"Um, Derek-sama?"

Yeah, Fuyume?

"You might wanna take a look at this."

This doesn't sound good. What's wrong, Fuyu--

Oh. Oh my. That's not good at all.

"They're just sitting there. All of them."

Joy. Hey gang, check your long-range scans. Fuyume's reporting around, oh, three? Four?

"Four at the least."

Yeah. Four thousand bugs currently moving into position between us and the Black Star out there. Waiting. Anyone else catching those numbers?


Title: Re: AGGF part 2
Post by: Andrew on April 09, 2008, 11:56:50 AM
I'm confirming a large number of bugs coming towards us. I can't get an exact number, but I would say at least 3000.


Title: Re: AGGF part 2
Post by: Derek on April 09, 2008, 12:19:56 PM
Definately in the Zergrush numbers, then. They appear to be holding at a defensive range, thankfully. Looks like they're waiting for us to make the first move.

Bugs are still bugs, and they still squash really easy. We've just never fought this many before.

Bright, I want all of the Duragreiz's mechs prepped, and kept on standby. That many bugs out there may require some quick change tactics midbattle.

"Roger. We've already got Shining and Cybuster fixed up from the last battle, so don't worry about going in at less than full strength. You two are pretty good at dodging hits."

"Hey, thanks."

Alright. Keep me posted, Bright.


Title: Re: AGGF part 2
Post by: Sume Gai on April 09, 2008, 01:31:02 PM
looks like they intend to force our hands,

well then I know it's sudden but I'll go with my previous plan.

phase I, Breakthrough:
This phase is a forced breakthrough of the enemy barrier system.  It will be a charge led by the Iron 7 (using it's break field as a shield). In order to clear the way we will utilize the 008X's Gravity Buster(Pilot needed) and SRX's HTB cannon as needed.  When the Iron seven is close enough it will us it's drill and pin-point barrier to breakthrough the main shield. 

Phase 2, Annihilation:
upon breakthrough my DX and GX-bits will prepare and fire their Satellite Systems simultaneously(we along with a pair of defenders will pull away to attack from a slightly different angle to avoid friendly fire).  If the Black Star somehow survives this attack we will then resort to the large stockpile of Reaction weapons on the Iron 7 and what ever else we have.

I know that this is a simple plan but I think our best bet is to stick to our strengths, rash charges and overkill.

Tyria you and Jolty will stick with me-

Talis: "I'm coming too Gai"

Talis we already went over this.

Talis: "Gai in this situation I'm no safer in a mech than on a bridge I'll use the Exblau and that's final"

very well, but stay close.

someone else will need to use the 008X and the SRX pilots will use trhe R-units but otherwise you are free to fight as you like.


Title: Re: AGGF part 2
Post by: Derek on April 09, 2008, 01:56:14 PM
Sounds like a fun plan. How're the preparations going, Bright?

"You wanted the GP-02 and your Valcion Kai prepped as well, right?"

Yeah. We might have need of Phys' nuke option, and we might as well get the Val ready if we're getting the others as well.

"Those are the last two, then. Estimated fifteen minutes till they're both ready."

Good. And since those are both my mechs, they don't need to be ready right at the start. Commander, this is Duragreiz. We're ready when you are.

*Sighs* Luna, what I would give for an evil-cleaving sword, right about now...

The Strike Enhanced, along with having more awesomer black Phase Shift armor, is compatible with the Noir Striker pack, thus becoming (dun dun dun~) the Strike Noir.

Title: Re: AGGF part 2
Post by: Derek on April 09, 2008, 10:01:02 PM
They appear to have stopped moving into place. Enemy forces now number around 4500-5000. It looks to me like they're mainly grouped into three large divisions of 1500 each, with the remainder in small groups that are filling in the gaps. Classic three prong strategy. Those "joints" will be the weakspots, if you're looking to break straight through. Get caught up in them, though, and you're liable to be hit from both sides by the larger groups.

"It looks like a Cyflash or two could make a pretty nice hole in one of them, big enough for at least a few guys to make it through unbothered."

Yeah, but leaving that sort of escort duty just on your shoulders would be leaving you out in the cold, so to speak. You're good, Masaki, but not even you can just toss off two Cyflashes in a row and just dash away like it's nothing.

"The option's open, though. That's what I'm saying."

Duly noted, and we appreciate the volunteering. Anyone else got any ideas?

"Hmmm... it almost seems like they're waiting for us to move."

It does, doesn't it, admiral?

All clumped together like that, too...
They either WANT us to do this, or they've forgotten what a zentradi command ship is capable of in the years since they last fought your people.

"Well, let's jog their memory a little. I haven't had a chance to do this since we stole that factory satellite back in 2011."
*The Death Pickle advances to the front of the fleet*
"All cannons! Open fire!"

*Countless beams rip out from the ship, flooding the space in front of it with energetic death as effectively as if the bow contained a single much larger cannon*

"Report! ... Very good.
Gentlemen, it appears the enemy count now stands at three thousand instead of five. And there's a corridor straight to the Black Star through area R-Delta. No need to thank me, though I would recommend launching soon to take advantage of it. I believe it would be in everyone's best interest if I stayed here and kept the enemy occupied during your incursion. Don't worry, I brought my own defenses. Godspeed, my friends.
Gnerl, Reguld, Thunderbolt squadrons, launch! QRau, NousGer, Sturmvogel teams, standby! "
*Britai turns to the tactical screen and begins barking orders as the comm channel closes*


Well, I think that answers the question of who's going to be opening the gap...
Geez, where did he find all those pilots? He must have had every unmicronized zentradi in the system on his ship.
*Jaybee checks the IFF scans*
Zentradi mercs. Of course. The promise of a battle this large would be enough to bring them all here even without a paycheck.
I was actually starting to wonder why we hadn't seen any yet.


Get the Huckebein ready for launch!
"And the Giganscudo!"

Hey... how hard do you think it would be to get EVERYTHING within range of us?

"I beg your pardon?"

Get as many enemy mechs as possible within range of our weapons.
Don't worry about taking a few hits. The shields can handle it.

"Ummm, did you just do what I think you did?"

Activated full-burst mode? Yes, why?

"Isn't there some sort of risk involved with that?"

What, you mean like the risk involved with ramming a moon-sized space station with a prototype battleship, then assaulting the same area with a half-dozen satellite cannons?
Or maybe the risk involved with accepting zentradi death duels, then refusing to kill the zentraid involved.
Or perhaps you meant like-

"Okay, I get the point. We take risks. Even stupid ones. I'll start buzzing the enemies. You just make sure to annoy them enough to come after us."

Hey, it worked.

There's something left and it DIDN'T come after us? I'm vaguely offended.

I seriously thought that taking out the Black Star would've been harder-

All right... Shara, let's head back.

We need to resupply anyways, and I wanna see what Rachel did to my poor Omega One.

It seems patient enough to me.

"You do have a point. Focker, the Gunstar is headed back."

Derek: Alright guys, that looks like the last of the scrubs. Fall back to the Duragreiz, for now.

Masaki: What about that thing in the wreckage?

Derek: That's why I'm saying fall back. At the very least, we need a few minutes to catch our breath.

Fuyume: It doesn't look like it's moving....

Derek: So fall back now, and once it starts, we can kill it. Sound good?

Masaki: Makes sense, I guess...


Title: Re: AGGF part 2
Post by: JayBee on April 11, 2008, 04:12:53 AM
Rachel. Just the person I needed to see.

First, do you have ANY idea how stupid taking the YF-21 out without authorization was? It has systems that have to be precisely calibrated to the pilot BEFORE they strap in. Had the hanger crew not made sure you killed the BCS, you could be a vegetable now.

"Oh, is that all you were worried about? It's okay, I calibrated it in the sims the other day. "

So this was planned?
Then that makes this next point more important.

You are NEVER to take another pilot's assigned machine without the explicit consent of the assigned pilot. And ANY change of machine should be mentioned to the commander in advance, NOT offhandedly thrown at the hanger crew during sortie.
I oughta take you off flight duty for that stunt, but we need every hand we can get right now.

"You weren't using it!"

As we established, I INTENDED to. I regularly swap between two or three machines during combat.
I certainly don't expect people to avoid the Blitz because I used it twice, but the Omega One is NOT fair game.

I understand we run a fairly loose ship here, and perhaps the rules aren't as clear as they should be... so I'll clarify it right now.
You are restricted to your personal VF-19 unless you get explicit authorization from me personally, until such time as I say otherwise. This extends to live-mech practice as well as combat routines.

"But I..."
No.

As long as we're on the topic... what'd you think of my mods?

"The beam sabers were a pretty nice addition. Gives the VF some much-needed close-combat prowess."

And the other mods?

"Huh?"

Exactly.
I was actually intending to test a new tweak in our last battle, but SOMEONE ran off with my plane.
THAT'S why you don't take a pilot's personal machine without asking. You don't even know what you're flying for certain.


That will be all.




*As Jaybee steps into the hall, Milla comes in*
"Ah, just the person I wanted to see... I have a question I think you might can answer."

Oh?

"Yes.... what's that?"

I think it's a variable fighter. A Sturmvogel, specifically.

"I KNOW what it is. I'm asking why Shara's flying a red plane. I thought we had an agreement."

So did I. So does she. Claims it's the wrong shade of red, and the trim makes it a completely different paint job, so she's technically abiding by the agreement. I didn't feel like debating the point, especially as she's no longer using your name. You're welcome to take it up with her if you'd like. I've still got a Blowsperior that needs restoration from the last time we clashed.

"Since when? Your bike looked pretty nice the last time I saw it."

Since I got drunk and Shara repainted it.
*Jaybee waves towards the small holding area the motorcycle is parked in, and Millia chuckles*

"I see. Well, I suppose we may as well let sleeping dogs lie."

Good. I'm gonna get some rest before the next fight. With the whatever-it-is.

Post by: Sume Gai on April 11, 2008, 10:00:58 AM
most of the fighting is done and we all pulled through but a lot of our machines were damaged...

My DX and the GX-bits all need full overhuals before we can use them again; the R units are all damaged to various degrees; the Iron 7 is barely able to move; and the Shining's cockpit needs a full rewiring, needless to say the list keeps going... 

we beat the four armed mech (Which is when my DX took a bad hit) and only have a couple bugs on our tail for now


Title: Re: AGGF part 2
Post by: Derek on April 11, 2008, 12:53:35 PM
If Shining's damaged, I'll be damned if I knew about it. Most hits I took were minor graze shots from ring lasers. Nothing ever even so much as made me flinch.

"Yeah, you were dodging more shots than I was. Then again, they were AIMING for me."

And Cybuster's also armored enough that it'd take complete destruction in order to bust open that cockpit of yours. Shining's armor is a lot thinner in nature, and I don't wear a space suit. If my hatch busts open while out in space or underwater, I'm done.

"And I still say that's incredibly stupid of you, and this is coming from a guy who doesn't wear a suit either."

Sorry that I don't have a custom helmet to fit over this visor. I haven't ever had the chance to sit down and talk to Char about how he does it. Besides, I've been working like this the entire time I've been here, and no one's said anything about it so far.

"You've never broadcast the information, either."

True.

Post by: Derek on April 11, 2008, 08:36:04 PM
Well, all that's taken care of. Everyone's been retrieved and attended to, Masaki's passed out on my couch from ODing on Prana, Fuyume's passed out on my visor's couch from ODing on combat, I've had fun taking sniping the few bugs still coming after us with Alex and one of our spare boosted rifles, and nothing else seems to be wanting to kill us at the moment.

"And I've got something else to add to that list of things going for ya, too!"

Oh hey, Howard! What's happening, my man?

"I got all the repairs done on 'Scythe, and took a look at it like you asked. Woo, boy. You've got some pretty crafty guys gunning for ya, Derek."

Tell me something I don't know. What'd ya find?

"Taking your word for it that she was supposed to have been fixed up at Mao's, we've got a few counts of deliberate tampering with minor connections to slow down reaction time, replacing perfectly good parts with old worn out ones, again, to screw up your timing, messing with or completely disabling a lot of the surge protections in the motivator systems, which would account for all of those going down when hit with what I'm thinking was an attack specifically designed to shock the hell out of the circuitry, and a nice little remote controlled sleeper virus in the control system that shut down your entire left side on command."

Sounds lovely. Did you get it all fixed?

"Yeah, but if I was you, I'd start doing the maintainance on her myself. If I wasn't around, you probably wouldn't have been able to get any repairs even started until we got back to the moon, and that'd put you right back where you started with the sabotage."

I'll keep that in mind, Howard. I appreciate it. How much do I owe you?

"I'll put it on your tab, just this once. When can ya come pick it up?"

Hang on to him, for now. We've got a few storage issues over on the Duragreiz. I'll come grab him when I get the chance.

"Alright. Talk to ya later, Derek."

That Howard, he's such a great guy. Last time I had him do repair work for me, he charged me an arm and a leg. Literally. I was lucky I had those spare parts laying around, or I wouldn't have been able to cover the repairs.


Title: Re: AGGF part 2
Post by: Sume Gai on April 11, 2008, 08:41:42 PM
15 days remain

according to the plans the Hagane and Hiryu (along with what was gathered of the UCC and EF military) will begin an operation 10 days from now.

I have done some basic analysis on what was left over and think I know how we can stop the white star (even with the losses we've suffered) 

we won't be able to render repairs to our heavily damaged units so I've ordered the mechanics to prep the remaining mechs.

Derek, I'll look into the 'scythe's repair record personally; I take traitors very personally.


Title: Re: AGGF part 2
Post by: Derek on April 11, 2008, 08:53:37 PM
Good luck finding traitors, Chief. You're more likely to find stripped corpses stuffed inside lockers. I'm willing to bet money that every one of Mao's mechanics who was supposed to be working on 'Scythe will turn up dead, or already has.

Dark Moon's not much for leaving witnesses leading back to them, no matter which side the witnesses might have actually been playing on.

Post by: Sakura77 on April 11, 2008, 09:05:00 PM
Once I am cleared to leave the infirmary, I'll prep the Cerberus, Garmraid, and the Bellze.

Bridge: You have a call from Mao on a secured channel

I'll take it now.

Ring: I heard that the battle between the AGGF and the black star resulted with success.

Yes but, we took some heavy losses. I personally broke a few ribs but, I should be ready for the assault on the white star

Ring: I sent Tomo with some mechs for the AGGF including my Huckebein which has been upgraded to the Huckebein EX which is for Sume Gai. Additionally there are some parts to repair the R-series along with some spare ammunition for some of the more unique machines.

What are the other machines that you are sending?

Ring: Some of them are exclusively for a few members of the AGGF including machines for Derek, JayBee, and Andrew. The others are the Wild series. Also your mother says she's sorry.

I see. Tell her we will talk after the war's over and everything is somewhat back to normal (As normal as things can get while being in the AGGF).

Ring: Tomo should be there soon with the supplies. See you in roughly two weeks.

See you later.

I'll leave it here for you to read and she says the supplies should be here in 1 hour at the most.

Knowing Tomo the way I do, she will probably "borrow" the ship from Mao so we won't have to store them on our ship but, after the war we may have to put a bigger hangar into the base. However, we may have to go over there to find out what the new machines are.

the ground crew are working themselves to the bone, we don't need new mechs, we need personnel

Well she took less time than I thought.

Tomo: Been a while hasn't it? If the situation weren't so serious I'd take you to the sim and go all out.

Too bad I guess. I going see if I can send the supplies to the other ships for repair purposes. I'm going to assume that you "borrowed" your ship from Mao.

Tomo: I haven't had a good fight in a while and I'd rather not leave be left in the sidelines either. You going to bring the three who own the machines that we sent to us?

Well I am coming over first but, I think they will be over soon.

*15 minutes later...

Well Derek finally found a mech that fits his Shisou Blade... I think I'll let the three of them check them out.


Title: Re: AGGF part 2
Post by: JayBee on April 11, 2008, 10:36:01 PM
The mechanics are still looking it over, but I think the Gunstar's a lost cause. They had to tow us back after that four-armed freak disabled us, and there seems to be some severe structural damage.

The Stampede is probably still usable, but I wouldn't count on it.


The YF-21 spent the entire fight in a hanger, though!

Here's a better question, did she send another ship so we'll actually have some place to put these things? At this rate, I'm gonna be handing crack to the addict when we have to ask Ryusei if we can bum storage space on the Hagane.
I thought Ryusei was on the Hiryu.

I heard Kyosuke's team was coming in on the Hagane, but I haven't had a chance to get in touch with them.



Either way... check with Britai.
I can almost guarantee the Death Pickle has some room, even with all those mechs and mercs.

I wouldn't worry too much about sabotage over there either.
...
Heck, the hangers over here on the Focker are still half-empty too, and I'll personally vouch for our mechanics.



Now I'm gonna go see if I can find out what new toys are being sent over.
I wouldn't have minded if she'd stopped with the 'Wurger and the 'Falken, honestly.  Or even ye olde Wildraubtier. Any of them would fit my style just fine.

Unless... but she wouldn't... right?


Title: Re: AGGF part 2
Post by: Sakura77 on April 11, 2008, 10:39:03 PM

Lucky you. I got the booby prize.

One may forgive me for being a touch ungrateful, but I fail to see how Heavyarms matches my fighting style OR my Shishio Blade. If this is someone's idea of a joke, I'm not impressed.

And the fact that it's normal Heavyarms and not at least Heavy Kai sorta ticks me off.

......

And upon further inspection, I find myself even more disgruntled by the fact that it's not even a real Gundam. This whole thing is basically an lifesize model of a Heavyarms. Junk metal plating, lifting up to show not even actual machinery underneath. This, my friends, is what I like to call a sham. I shall make a point of spitting into the cockpit, and then I shall go complain to the manager.

*Derek opens the hatch in preparation to do just as he has said he would, only to stop cold as he looks inside. The cockpit appears to have been completely altered from a normal one, more closely resembling that of a G Gundam cockpit than anything else*

Whoa. This is....this is new. I'm usually not one to state the obvious, but this shouldn't be here. Why the hell is something like this here, anyway?

*Jumps inside, looking around*

It's not working, either. It's just some more trash parts modified to look like....hmm?

*The cockpit starts to light up dimly, as the holo-projector on Derek's ARC activates to show a download bar moving quickly from start to finish*

"BWZ-00 file download complete. Please forgive the wierd choice of packaging, Derek-sama."

*Just as quickly as it started, the download is over and the activity goes dead. Derek climbs out of the cockpit quietly, mulling over what just happened.*

......I should have known she'd have found this and start playing with it, the little idiot. She never did know when to give up on lost dreams.

That Heavyarms is trash, not even fit for spare parts. Toss it. I'll be....I dunno. Doing something. Or getting drunk. Or both. I don't care.



(I should mention, I'm rather particular about what I use and where I get them from. Do me a favor next time, Sakura, and don't assume there's something specifically set aside for me. And especially don't assume that I'll use it.

And besides that, we already have WAY too many mechs as it is, considering our pilot count.)

Remember when I told you about a gear that I was having built when I was with the Solarian army? She seems to have finished it. It doesn't have a name or designation, yet. It does have the remot control system that I wanted. It's like the R-Gun in a way. It's designed to be a support gear for a gestalt unit like the G-Elements or the SRX. It turns into a sword though.


Title: Re: AGGF part 2
Post by: Sume Gai on April 12, 2008, 09:21:54 PM
taking a look at the specs this thing is very light. (I guess it needs to be in order to transform) It's lack of armor is somewhat off-putting

looks like the main weapons are beam blades and the sharp edges all over it and it has a Tesla Drive for mobility.  I'm afraid we don't have many mechs that can make use of it at the moment (maybe the Valsion or the Mk III/008X boxer)


Title: Re: AGGF part 2
Post by: JayBee on April 13, 2008, 12:48:22 AM
Wait...
Support unit for the SRX... turns into a sword...
My god, man, you've resurrected the R-Sword!

Be VERY careful who you tell about this. 

If Ryusei finds out, you'll never have a moment's peace ever again for the rest of your life.




Anyways, I've got the Hucky 2 crated up and ready to go.
Just gotta get it to the Hagane. And then we will have one less than every Huckebein in existence.

Random mechanic: "Actually, a lot of people have Huckebeins. They started mass-producing them a few months ago. Why does Bullet want the prototype when he's got a final version over there on the Hagane already?"

Your career's been straight UNSpacey, hasn't it? Otherwise you wouldn't ask that question.
The reason Bullet wants this is that the Feddies can't approve a mech for production until they turn it into a steaming pile of zentradi-scale donkey shit. The watered-down pile of parts they mass-produce is a Huckebein in name only.

I will never understand what possesses so many people to build a perfectly good mech, decide to mass-produce it, and then strip out everything that makes it a good mech.
Why even bother spec'ing a prototype if the final version is gonna resemble it in name only?

Gilliam: "Ya know, I asked that a few times myself. Never did get a straight answer. Though he's still right. You don't have the Mk3 R ."

Huh... you're right, Huckebein's come in pairs, don 't they? I'd've figured they gave that one to Bullet... I wonder who it wound up with...
Ah well.



*looks around*
Ah, there's a truck over there. Someone give me a hand with this crane. And don't forget the G-Impact!

...

And we'll just pray Excellen isn't in the hanger when we get there. I'm not really in the mood right now.
On the other hand, I'd like to find out what Kyosuke's driving. I asked if he wanted anything while I was packing the Hucky up, but he said he'd already made arrangements.

Actually, I've been looking over the specs of both the prototype and MP Hucky-IIs. They're almost completely identical in base performance, with the only real changes being the MP's Tesla Drive and a change in weaponry. Of course, slight differences can make all the difference, especially for a TK-er like Mr. Luckfield.

Sure, Gespenst Mk II Ms suck compared to most of the other mechs out in the universe today, but you gotta admit that whoever came up with the Jet Magnum was a genius.

Then again, didn't the original Lion test unit suck compared to the mass produced Lions? I mean, more than the Lions themselves sucked. Even Lion Fs have such a higher life expectancy, and that's still not saying much.

I will never understand what possesses so many people to build a perfectly good mech, decide to mass-produce it, and then strip out everything that makes it a good mech.
Why even bother spec'ing a prototype if the final version is gonna resemble it in name only?
Actually, I've been looking over the specs of both the prototype and MP Hucky-IIs. They're almost completely identical in base performance, with the only real changes being the MP's Tesla Drive and a change in weaponry. Of course, slight differences can make all the difference, especially for a TK-er like Mr. Luckfield.
*Jaybee stops working for a moment*
I suppose that's true... stripping out the T-Link is the biggest difference.
But really... why add in the T-Link and Gravity Wall for the prototype, then strip them out again later when you mass-produce it? It throws your entire performance profile off, and makes most of your test data meaningless.

Hucky MP just begs the question... why?

The Jet Magnum IS pretty slick.

And don't forget the variable fighters. If there's one thing the UNS does right, it's hardware design. Almost every mass-produced VF has been identical to or better than the prototype.
The Sturmvogel is a notable exception, though it's technically a major upgrade over the prototype in most places, and UNS wrote the Omega One's pilot interface off as a lost cause. I certainly disagree with them, but I can see where they'd come to that conclusion.

There've been a few mobile suits that were improved as they transitioned to mass-production too.
The F-91 sticks out, partially because it's sexy and partially because it wasn't designed as more than a technology testbed originally. The V Gundam got a production run too.
But usually mass-produced MS get gimped. Why you put the good armor on the prototype that's not intended to ever see real combat, and the cheap junk on your mass-produced frontline fighter is beyond me, but it's something that happens a lot to mobile suits.
Hell, the original Gundam was so effective that a child with no piloting experience could defeat operate it effectively. Now, granted he turned out to be an emerging newtype, and an absurdly powerful one at that, but he didn't exactly have a lot going for him on his first mission, if you want to call it that.
You put professional soldiers  in a machine like that, and the possibilities are endless.

Hmn...why put good armor on a unit not meant to be seen in battle...simple! They have to impress the high-ups to agree to mas produce their project BEFORE seeing the cost! And nothing better for it than seeing the unit beign hammered down with enogh to destroy any other piece of crap!

The armor reduction comes after they have aproved AND saw the production coasts...

Hmm... it is true that a single RX-178 cost more than four Pegasus-class carriers and still wound up under-performing. Besides, I'm pretty sure the T-Link System was a personalization for Bullet, though I do wonder about the Gravity-type system aboard the Hucky MkII...

Gah! Shotgun!

No, seriously. I'll escort you guys with Alex. 'Scythe seems to draw way too much attention around here, and I don't feel like bantering with Garaz again. Besides, I kinda want to check how much better this boosted rifle is, now that I've thrown money at Astronage and made him upgrade it a bit. Bugs aren't exactly sturdy enough to make for good test targets.

Interesting read indeed. Not very often you learn that your government's been trying to keep an eye on you and your family for the last two years. At least I know they've been failing at it.

BW-004, presumed in hiding somewhere on the moon. That's way off.

BW-005, last known as operating somewhere out in the colonies, exact wherabouts unknown. If the fact that Fuyume came here by herself is any indication, that's wrong too.

BW-006, last reported continuing to operate as a mercenary, fulfilling a paid mission to transport supplies of unknown origin from somewhere on Earth to the UCC capital ship Macht, under orders of Commander Maier. Disappeared shortly afterwards, just before the beginning of the DC War. Good. I knew he was smart enough to stay out of major conflicts like that.

BW-007, last wherabouts unknown, presumed as hiding somewhere on Earth. That's possible, but unlikely. She's got more friends up here.

That's the gang, alright. All four of them know better than to let themselves be noticed for too long.

Hmm. BW-003. Continues to operate freelance as the mercenary "Blue Luna", in pursuit of BW-001. Sounds about right.

BW-001. Captain Derek "Blue Wings" Barona. Currently assisting the armed faction AGGF. Hey, we're an armed faction now. We're moving up in the world.

BW-002.....

Well. No need to read that one. I know where he is.

Derek the really interesting part is the transmission log attached to the end of the file it says it was received then retransmitted from the Alexander base in side one, perfectly normal except that it's been abandoned for 2 years now...

it's final destination is also  quite interesting as well; somewhere in side three considering this is a class 2 intelligence report and no EF bases are even active in Side 3, who where they sending this to?

You must have not been paying attention when I made that idle crack to Bullet that Excellen probably has a bunny suit in Kusuha's size. Once THAT little mental nugget got into his head, events progressed naturally from there.

You probably also missed the thumbs up Excellen and I shared afterwards. Easy, sure. Fun as hell, definately.

Of course I did. I was standing back and admiring the scenery, so to speak.

I do my best to not get drawn into the insanity.





"Hate to interrupt, but we've got a problem, Jay."
Mike, don't tell me that. Please.

"Levi's made another announcement. Since the moon has attacked the Balmar empire, it is exempted from the 30-day cease-fire. In short, she's sending a force to make an example of us.

The Hiryu is out on patrol in the area. Lefina's confirmed the White Star's launched mecha. Lots of them. They missed the Hiryu, and are headed straight for Luna. "

What, lots of bugs? That's not what I call a problem. Bring 'em on.

"Not bugs. Well, not entirely. The first wave is all bugs. But about three quarters of their force is in a second wave, and that's mixed."

What's it made of besides bugs?

"Bootlegged Gespensts. And Vayyikras. "

Vayyikra... that was what they called those  things that attacked us at the Black Star?

"Yeah. Kind of birdish looking. There's also a black mech we haven't seen before. "

*Jaybee sighs*
You said A black mech... so one unknown? You know what that means, right?

*Jaybee and Mike speak in unison.*
"Boss mech."

So... ignoring the overpowered one-off for a moment... How many is 'lots'?

"Thousands. They didn't get an exact count. They're trying to catch up to them, but the balmarian units launched at a pretty high velocity. The enemy mechs will reach the moon before the Hiryu. We should be seeing them in about a day, with the second wave an hour behind."

Dammit...


First, have the Macross launch all fighters once we see the first wave. A couple hundred VF-11s should be able to clean out the bugs before the second wave hits, regardless of who's piloting them.
And it spares the rest of us from fatigue.

"Sounds good. I assume we aren't telling them they're cannon fodder?"

Of course not. They're our first line of defense. Just make sure they fall back when the second wave hits.  At least long enough to re-arm. I don't mind more guns, as long as they're on our side.
How are Britai's forces looking?

"Not good. They got chewed up in the Black Star attack. On the upside, most of the functional units are the elites. NousGer, QRau, and Sturmvogel teams. "

Hmmm.... we'll save them for the second wave.
Any functional Regulds, Glaugs, or Thunderbolts should launch in the first wave, pilots permitting.

Second... will the Hiryu arrive in time to help?
"They'll hit the back of the main force about the time it reaches the moon."

Perfect! Fire up the laser comm and tell 'em we're planning to turn this into a pincer attack.

"Already on it. Actually, Lefina already suggested it. "

Figured she'd be thinking the same thing. Well, send back a confirmation. We'll draw the enemy's attention, then they can attack their undefended rear.
The Banpreios, Irm and his Grungust, Viletta in a production Huckebein, Latooni in the Wildraubtier(Hell, Lat in a cardboard box)... I pity the fools.

"When you put it that way... are you sure there's gonna be enough left for everyone else?"


Third, spin control. Britai's probably already working on it, but check anyways. 
Now's a good time to start bragging about the Black Star's destruction. We've got undeniable proof that these Balmarians aren't as invincible as they claim. Like hell we're letting Levi boast.



And lastly... Tell the damned Neo DC to either help us or get the hell out of our way. We don't have the time or desire to play cowboys and indians with a bunch of spoiled children.

"Those exact words?"

Yes.

"With pleasure."


Hanger, start prepping the Stamp... wait, I've got an idea.
*Jaybee grins*
Get the Konig ready. Load the cannon magazines with grapeshot cartridges.
And strap some beam sabers to the insides of the arms. Use duct tape if you have to. Don't worry too much about wiring up recharge racks. I can just smack some bitches if the sabers run low. 
Have my Huckey on standby.


To hell with dancing around everything. I'm gonna walk right through it this time.

To be honest, chief, I expected this one.
You blow up a facility like the Black Star, you usually see a retaliation strike.

Sakura, wait! I don't think you've thought this through!

You'll have to go THROUGH the first wave AND the main force to get TO the back.

Besides which, you'd draw attention to the Hiryu and spoil the plan. Right now, they don't realize it's back there.
They're watching us, though. A mech launching from here will certainly be noticed and monitored.

Best-case scenario is they intercept you and you wind up fighting their entire force alone. That's what we in the business call suicidal and pointless heroics. Pilots are hard to replace.

Worst-case scenario is you tip them off to the Hiryu's presence and ruin everything. That's what we in the business call a complete custerfluck.

If you wanna blow something up, believe me, you'll get your chance. There's plenty to go around.
Turn around now!




And remember, if you HAVE to let someone through to the moon, make sure they land away from a dome, and that everyone knows we've got one on the ground.

God knows everyone else has.

*rubs forehead*

Mike... remember when I said the Hiryu wouldn't catch up for about a day, and the cannon fodder on the Macross was gonna take care of the first wave to save the REAL pilots fatigue?

"Yeah?"

Good. I just wanted to make sure I hadn't completely lost it.
Giganscudo's arms got hosed in that last fight, so go pick a new mech out.

"You're specifically requesting I launch instead of manning the bridge? Are you about to order what I think you are? Because if you are, I want to go on record as stating that it's a VERY bad idea."

Objection noted.
Focker crew, battlestations! Pilots to the hangers! Prepare for a short-range fold maneuver! Activate the omnidirectional barrier! "

"Oh god... you're going to drop us right in the middle of an angry beehive... I'm taking that Double-Zeta. Maybe with all that armor I'll live long enough to blink... wait, the barrier?! You're going to... this is even DUMBER than I expected!"

They say the best offense is a good defense.

"It's the other way around! The best DEFENSE is a good OFFENSE!"

And is there a better offense than a barrier overload in the middle of your enemy?

"YES! ANYTHING ELSE!"

Tough.
Fold coordinates set... all hands, we're folding in one minute. Pilots, your launch will be delayed an indeterminate amount of time, likely not to exceed three minutes. After launching, proceed fighting in the direction of the moon, and link up with the Alliance forces coming towards us.


Carol, as soon as everyone's launched, I want you to fold the Focker back to the Moon.

"Roger, Jay. You better make sure you come back."

I didn't know you cared.

"Damn right I do! I WILL find you a mate!"


Mike... if we survive this, kill me.

"You don't have to ask, friend. Trust me."

Well, let's get to the hanger...

*Several bugs all suddenly blow up at the same time as a black shape moves away from them*

Sorry I'm a little late to the party, guys. Had to go get my tuxedo from the cleaners.

Now, which one of you suicidal twits wants to try me first? Just to warn you, I get a little touchy when people start threatening my home.

...Ah, hell. Why play favorites? I'll take you all on at once! Let's go, 'Scythe!

*FIGHT (http://youtube.com/watch?v=aVyWwFw99dc) starts playing*

Duragriez, Metatron advance we must back up the Focker before it's destroyed.

ALL HANDS MAN THE GUNS.

prepare a boarding party to back up the crew of the Focker in reboarding the ship.

*pulls out customized Boosted Rifle and fires a shot*

this thing is a railgun? not bad
The Focker's behind you, chief. It folded out as soon as possible.

Leaves us in a bit of a bind, but...
Aww, crap... I'm out of cannon ammo and missiles.

*The Hagane floats up and starts ejecting mecha, including... a Grungust 0?*

I thought Sanger was back on Earth.

"He is. He's helping TLI with the Double-G project. But you guys have my Alteisen. Next time you play odds this long, call me first."

So THAT'S what you're driving?

"We picked your Huckebein up from the Focker before we left. You can land and change at any time."

And the YF-21?

"It's already launched."

Who's flying it?!?!

"Your bartender, it seems. He's pretty good."

*The YF-21 releases a set of panels from the underside. They acquire the green aura of a T-Link weapon and start slashing through nearby enemies*

"DRAGON FANGS! ... Oh, hi Jay. I like your mods. This is a lot nicer than when I last flew it."

You... wait, what?

"I wasn't ALWAYS a bartender. Let's just leave it at that."


*Jaybee flips back to Kyosuke."

"He's also a surprisingly powerful psychodriver. I'm surprised he wasn't tapped for the SRX project."

Bullet: "When did you add a T-Link anyways? And thanks for bringing my Huckebein back."

Just recently. I hadn't even tested it yet. And you're welcome. We're running out of hanger space anyways. Someone's declared us as the official storage location for powerful prototypes, it seems.

Anyways, I'm swapping mechs. Back in a moment.

"We threw some sandwiches and a case of Petit Cola in there. It's no substitute for a hot meal and a good nap, but it'll keep you going. Oh, and you might want to know that the Hiryu's abandoned the stealth approach and opened the engines to full throttle. "

So instead of a day, Lefina's getting here...

*a series of explosions ignites on the far side of the enemy fleet*

Ah.  Not exactly as planned, but it'll do.

Ah, reinforcements. Gotta love them. Hey, Luckfield! Nice to see you're out of the doghouse for a few hours, at least!

*Casually waves to Bullet as he flies by*

.....Anyone think he's figured out I made that bunny suit crack on purpose, yet?

"Y-you WHAT?!"

Whoops, forgot about the comm. Oh well, guess that answers my question.

Post by: Sume Gai on April 15, 2008, 03:00:46 PM
psst Jaybee our alt is just a copy the real one should still be with them same for most of our mechs.

Silly bugs prepare to become Sashimi

*the 009GS deploys it's extra arms and activates it's four beam sabers*

this could be fun..

* the 009GS proceeds to spin and attack the bugs around it with it's wildly slashing blades*

Post by: JayBee on April 15, 2008, 03:38:54 PM
We've got a bootleg?
Well, whatever. Kyosuke's doing good with the Grungust 0. We can figure out where the real Alt went later.


Hey, there's Kai!
Still using that old Gespenst?

"We've had this discussion. A good pilot doesn't need a fancy mech. JET MAGNUM!"

And I still say a good mech removes limitations on a good pilot. FANG SLASHER! Never mind that I still can't beat you in your Gespenst.


Hey, anyone see that black boss mech?

Bartender: "It's in area G7. Just sitting there. I think the pilot's trying to decide if he needs to do anything. Well, at this point it's more likely he's deciding where he needs to do something."

Rats. I figured it was too much to hope that he was killed in the barrier explosion. Well, let's see what we can smash before he finishes thinking.
*The Huckebein's backpack flips open, exposing an impressive array of micromissiles*
Trace missiles, fire!

Aaand, my guns are out. Time to switch to a more environmentally-friendly gun. TK Laser Cannon, fire!

Come to think of it, I haven't really seen that black mech do anything. Did the pilot get hurt in the attack on the Black Star? Does it even have a pilot?

Post by: Sume Gai on April 15, 2008, 04:42:45 PM
I got him

*009GS, still surrounded by a flurry of beam saber strokes moves in on the leader mech from above*

let's see what other tricks this baby's got

* the sabers switch off and the spare arms stow the sabers and themselves, before I draw the twin shorty beam rifles*

let's go for it.

* the boss and the 009GS begin trading shots while closing*

HYAAAAAAAA!!

*the enemy boss avoids a series of shots and gets close enough to grab on to the 009GS's arms*

GOTCHA!

*the hip railguns unfold and release several shots into the boss's chest plate *

that's gotta hurt.

* the enemy boss has let go and seems to be drifting for a second before he suddenly accelerates away from the GS*

you won't run from me.

* the 009GS returns the beam rifles to their holsters and begins the chase firing small bursts from the forehead vulcans*

now BREAK METEOR!!

* a green break field appears around the 009GS as it's GS-ride and Tesla Drive increase output to the limit. 

The 009GS crashes straight through the enemy boss mech and a small group of humanoid types that were preparing an ambush *

Post by: Derek on April 15, 2008, 06:25:43 PM
And while we're listing them off, I see an AGX-05 right there. Hey, Masaki! Where the hell ya been?

"You ditched me back on the Duragreiz, you jerk! Do you have any idea how long it took me to find the hangar?!"

Longer than I thought it'd be. Sorry, Andoh. I guess I was in such a hurry to go get 'Scythe, I totally forgot about your Lost Boy complex. Forgive me, buddy?

"Wow, was that an actual apology I just heard?"

Yeah, yeah. Yes or no, you green haired bastard.

"Well, if you're gonna say it like that...."

Screw it. Hey, Cybuster.

"What?"

Duck.

"Eh..?"

*In an instant, 'Scythe boosts straight towards and then over the Cybuster, cutting down the bird about to strike from behind him*

There. Forget the apology, you can just owe me one. Better?

"Funny. Anyone ever tell you what kind of an ass you are?"

All the time, actually.

Hey, where'd all the Gespensts go?


Daitetsu:
"They just disappeared... about 800 of them. No, they teleported! They're in lunar orbit now!"

What?!?! Shit, we can't make it in... time?
*explosions erupt near the moon*

"All right, Thunderbolts, keep it up. . Let's prove to these guys that we aren't just cannon fodder! "

Ya know, I forgot all about them. I guess the Macross and Death Pickle can handle that.

How many mechs are left here?
D: "About twelve hundred. Not counting the reinforcements, which look to be about 800."

All right. Let's wrap thi-
*Yaeger cuts in*
"Look out! The Astranagant is regenerating!"

The what?

Yeager: "The Boss Mech!"

Shit, it is.
This is ridiculous, you know.

Y: "Hey, I didn't design it."

But you recognized it. We're gonna talk about this later.

Y: "Fair enough. Can we kill it now?"

You bet. Gravity Rifle!

Bullet: "G-Impact, launch!"

Kyosuke: "Colossal Blade, incoming!"

Kusuha: "Doom Blade, come forth!"

*Jaybee looks around*

Anyone else wanna dump some firepower into this thing?

Yeager:: "Vampire laser!"

... I'm not sure that counts as firepower.

Y: "It can't regenerate if it's out of energy, right?"

Good point.

I don't mind the cannon fodder, myself. Hey, Jet Magnum, P.I.!

Kai:....You wouldn't be talking to me, would you?

Well, the mustache fits. I figured I needed an old reference to match.

Kai: I'm not THAT old!

You're using an uncustomized Gespenst. Willingly. I think you qualify for Social Security based on that ALONE.

Kai: You've got a real mouth on you, you know that?

I get it all the time. Actually, I make the cracks, but I've got a bit more respect for the Gespenst line after driving our Mk-II S a few weeks ago.

Kai: Oh?

Yeah, especially after being able to do something like THIS! DEATHSCYTHE KICK!

*Boosts into and dropkicks the hell out of a Gespenst, destroying it almost instantly*

Kai:.....You know, you didn't exactly look good doing that.

Yeah, I know. I still wanted to have that in the video archives somewhere, though. Hey, you've got a Jet Magnum and I've got a buster shield. Wanna see who can get the most kills with just his left arm?

Kai: I accept that challenge!

*Yeager boosts towards a piece of empty space*
"Not quite dead... it ejected something... It's a pilot. The Zefield crystals are fading, it should be safe. I'm taking him to the Metatron for medical care."

Are you sure that's a good idea?
...
Never mind. I'm not in any position to criticize tactical flaws after that stunt with the Focker. Continue.

" Sore wa hajimete no ai no tabidachi deshita
  I LOVE YOU SO"

Eh?

*The Macross comes cruising in*

"You really should plan these things better, Jay. Battle against countless aliens bent on humanity's destruction, and there wasn't a single Minmay CD on the entire ship. I had to download the song on the way here."

Carol? What the hell are you doing?

"Coming to help. Admiral Kridanik's got things under control. Most of the forces stayed with him, but I got the Sturmvogels and QRaus. Looks like I'm a little late, though."

Naw. There's a third wave incoming. Now change that out for Sharon... no, scratch that. Let's hear some Fire Bomber tonight.

"Dancin' on the planet dance!"

...
It WOULD be Planet Dance.
Whatever, I can do that.


Let's soften the next wave up a little before they get here.
Carol, Lefina, Daitetsu...

"Arm the Gravity Cannon!"
"Release the safety on the Tronium Buster!
"*mechanical noises over the comm as the booms of the Macross swing down over it's shoulders*"

Post by: Derek on April 15, 2008, 08:53:22 PM
Oh sweet, Fire Bomber! *Tunes in as he drills his shield through another Gespenst* I still prefer JAM Project, but who can argue with Basara?

"You're paying more attention to the music than the actual battle?"

Sure. Hey, it's important to kick ass and take names, but neither of those matter if you don't look really cool doing it. And the first step towards that is having the right music. By the way, you should tint your cameras. We're about to see some fireworks.

"You're pretty sure of yourself, Gundam pilot or not."

It's what I do, really.

Roger that. Sorry old man, I guess we're gonna have to cut this short. Too bad, huh?

"Sure, and the fact I was winning had nothing to do with it, I take it."

Nah, I admit when I'm whooped. For a guy who'd apparently burst into flame if he ever set foot inside anything that isn't a Gespenst model, you're amazingly skilled. I'd hate to have to fight you for real.

"Why, thank you. I think."

Guess all that age and experience had to pay off somewhere, huh?

"Somehow, I almost knew you were going to make another joke about my age."

Derek Zerus Barona, at your service. I try my best. See ya later, old man!

Chaostic there is one way to end this and that is to do the X-Buster on the setting that I used in the last battle and since we still have a large amount of energy left it won't drain us dry. I'll let you target and fire it since you have targeting system and I'm getting in position.

Heh....sorry. I have a hard time believing in love.

*Activates the buster shield and drives it straight into the enemy's face, pulling it close before unloading the vulcans into it at point blank. He then rips the shield back out, flips himself upward and kicks the wounded machine upwards, and disappears. As the boss continues travelling up, Deathscythe appears above it and boosts down, the beam scythe raised.*

Unfortunately for you, I do believe in THIS!

*With a single pass, the scythe goes straight through. As the boss splits apart, the beam deactivates and 'Scythe closes it's wings. As the explosion goes off behind it, the only source of light or color in the entire sillouette of the Gundam is it's eye flare.*

I believe that settles things here. If there was anyone in that thing who might have just survived that, I'm not about to turn around and see them.

I'm gonna check on that pilot.
*Huckey 3 boosts towards the Metatron*

*Citan walks up, a grim expression on his face*
So, doc... how's he doing?

"Not good. Between the battle trauma and the sudden disappearance of the crystals, combined with how long he's been a part of that... thing... I've done what I can. Mostly I'm just easing his pain. I'll give him 24 hours. "

I see. Did anyone run an ID check on him?

"Yeager did. He left the printout on my desk. Here."

*Jaybee reads through it, his expression shfiting a few times*
And Yeager's SURE this is right?

"He rechecked it twice. He's as sure as any of us could be. "

*Jaybee clenches his fist, then punches a comm panel*

Get me a channel to the Macross.
...
Carol. Get over here to the Metatron, now. We've got your father in the sickbay.

"What?! But he was-"
On the Megaroad. I know.

"How did he... "
He was the pilot of that boss mech.
*Jaybee pauses a moment, to let the implications sink in*
He's not expected to live. Doc's giving him a day. Get over here now. 

"... I'll be right there."
*The channel goes dead*

Let him rest for now. We can find out what happened later.

Citan: "Assuming he remembers. They messed his head up pretty badly. Are you sure telling her about this was a good idea?"

No. I'm not sure.
She took the disappearance of the Megaroad pretty badly. I hate to reopen that wound.
But I couldn't live with myself if I hid this from her.

Damn Balmarians!

*Jaybee sighs, smacks the comm again*
Hey, Mike. We've got a fighter pilot from the Megaroad over here in the Metatron's sickbay. Carol's dad.

"Was THAT who ejected from that Astranagant thing?"

Yeah. I've already called her. She's coming here now.

This isn't gonna be pretty. Keep an eye open, okay?
"Sure thing. Do we know what happened?"

Not yet. I'll let you know.

STANDBY FOR FLEET-WIDE BROADCAST----------------------------------
*CONTROL (http://youtube.com/watch?v=nYOWo8v9PDA) begins playing*

Attention, all hands. The 30 day deadline the Balmarians gave use will expire in ten days.

We as a whole have decided to fight, and tomorrow we shall set out to do just that. the Metatron, the Duragriez, the Focker, and  the Peacemilion have all been drafted into a combined operation known as "Operation SRW".  the remaining ships shall remain here so that we will have a place to return should we prove victorious, or should we fail, a seed of hope.

I know all of you fight for your own reasons, perhaps you fight to protect, perhaps you fight for revenge, or perhaps you fight for your own gain, However, those reasons will be taken from us if we allow the Balmarians to triumph.  We will be left as drones fighting for other's reasons and against our own will.  I cannot bare the thought of it

I ask that you lend your strength not to me our the AGGF but rather to all of Earth so that we may continue to live by our own wills and hearts.  What follows in the next ten days can be the end of a 30 day terror or the beginning of a never ending nightmare; and we are the ones who can decide which it shall be!

END FLEET-WIDE BROADCAST-----------------------------------------------

Chaostic even if the ES is damaged, we can merely transplant the Anima Vessel into a different ES if we can find one. I haven't had the time but, can you check the data drives in the Dinah after we get back who knows what we will find?


Title: Re: AGGF part 2
Post by: JayBee on April 16, 2008, 09:19:30 PM
Mike: "So the Megaroad is still out there after all?"

Yeah. Maybe.
They did an emergency fold. Abandoned two squadrons to the Balmarians. I can't imagine that was an easy call to make...

And no one knows what happened after that but her crew.

"Shouldn't they have contacted us? Warned us about the Balmarian threat? Told us they were alive? Anything at all?"

Too dangerous. Calling home would have given the Balmarians a big neon sign pointing right back to Earth.
...
Their caution may have been misplaced, though. It seems they knew about us all along.

I wonder if they're still out there, lost in space, cut off from everyone...  I guess it's still an unresolved issue. But we know why they lost contact now.


And we know a bit more about the Balmarians' motives now.
It's disgusting.

*The two pass a purple-haired man*
'Scuse me, Mike...

Yeager, we need to have that talk now.

*Mike waves and heads off*

"In the hall?"

There's an office over there, if you'd prefer.

"I would, actually. I don't like airing my dirty laundry in public."

Fair enough.
*The two step into the unoccupied office, blahblahblah, you played OG, you know the story, and they step back out a little later*

Well, it's a hard story to swallow, but ... I don't think you're lying.

"You trust me, then?"

Well, yes, but that's not why I believe you.
If you were lying, you'd have made up a more believable story. Therefore, the absurdity of your story is itself an indicator of it's truthfulness.

"Thanks. I think."

Don't mention it.
...
Seriously, from what I've seen, your actions are those of a moral, if secretive, man. Your story pretty much confirms that hunch. It's just my job to be paranoid.

There may be a few dark spots in your past, but I'm sure they were for the right reasons, even if they were the wrong choice.

So...
Let's go bust some heads.

I won't forgive the Balmarians for what they've done. Not to other races, not to the Megaroad crew, and especially not to my friends.
It was bad enough seeing her go through this once. At least this time we have more than vague guesses about what happened.

"You consider her a friend?"

Doesn't look that way from the outside, does it? Believe me, I wouldn't put up with her constant attempts at fixing me up if she wasn't.

*Gilliam smiles*
"I do wish the AGGF existed more often. You guys are fun to work with."

How often DO we show up?

"I'll never tell."

Bah.
Now... let's go kick some ass.

"You'll get no arguments here."

...

There anything we should be expecting?

"I'd love to tell you, but things tend to not go well when I warn people. And it's always a little different. Sometimes a lot different. Just... be ready for anything."

Fair enough.

*At the bar*

Derek: *Sitting at a table with the others* So, let's list off here. One, they showed up and demanded our surrender, gave us a month, and basically just made a point of ruining everyone's day.

Masaki:*Nods* Yeah.

Derek: Two, they bring with them an extra mechanized fortress, one apparently designed to do nothing except produce those goddamned cockroaches.

Fuyume: *Sitting in a chair on the holo-projector, dressed up in a pink secretary's outfit and writing into a notepad*.....Cockroaches. Noted.

Derek: Three, once we made a point of trashing that thing, they decide to say hell with being nice and launch an all out assault specifically aimed at Luna. If we hadn't been here and pretty much all of the reasonably intelligent people with giant robots hadn't decided to get involved, they probably would have turned the moon back into an uninhabited wasteland.

Ouattro: *Takes a sip of his drink and nods* That sounds about right.

Derek: And now, word on the grapevine is that the boss mecha was actually driven by one of the Megaroad pilots, captured and turned against us by these assholes. I haven't heard the exact details of who he is yet, and it's probably not my place to know, but it doesn't sound like anything good, no matter who the poor guy is.

Kuro: *Nods* None of the UNS groups appear to be very happy about it at all, meow.

Shiro: With good reason, I'd say. So, we're all gonna take 'em out, right?

Derek: You're damned right we're gonna take 'em out. I'll admit, aside from the obvious part of inevitable destruction if they win, these guys haven't done much to me. But I'll be damned if I let them get away with doing all this to everyone else.

Masaki: Yeah! The hell do these guys think they are, expecting to just walk in here and take over our planet? We won't stop till we kick every single one of their asses!

Quattro: Spoken like a pair of true heroics. No wonder you two seem to get along so well.

Derek: Says the guy currently sitting here drinking with us, right? You can have whatever reasons you want for fighting or hiding beneath those shades, Red. We all know you wouldn't turn around and run away at this stage in the game, either.

Quattro:....No, I suppose I wouldn't. Got me there, Blue Wings.

Derek: Damn right. *Raises his glass* Alright gentlemen, to another upcoming first class delivery, courtesy of AGGF Express! The package? Our foot. Destination? Straight up Levi Tolar's high and mighty ass!

*The entire bar cheers at that one*

Masaki: Hell yeah!

Quattro: *Nods* I'll give you credit, Blue Wings. You sure know how to get them going, when you need to.

Derek: *Smirks* It's a gift, I know.

Talis: "Gai, I noticed you didn't call for the Titus to attack the White Star."

yes I want it here.

Talis: "so do you want me on the Metatron?"

no I want you to stay here as well.

Talis: "but Gai-"

Talis, No but's I want you here, I want.. I want you to be my seed of hope.

Talis: "You mean?"

yes.

Talis: <eyes filled with tears> "yes, yes, of course."

even if this is taken care of I'll still have a lot to do; the AGGF is my responsibility after all. you'll have to wait a good bit.

Hey, Derek...

You buyin' for everyone, or is this a private party?

Either way...
*He flags the bartender over*

Thanks.

"Beg pard?"

For that last fight. We needed all the guns we could get out there.
I'm not gonna ask about your past, or why you had a BCS profile programmed already. I'm just gonna say thanks.

"Ah. You're welcome, then."

Yeager: "Hey, you didn't extend that latitude to ME!"

Yes, well HE wasn't demonstrating a disturbingly high level of knowledge about everything going on while everyone around him was trying to figure out which end was up.


Awww, hell...
One round for the house. On me. This includes you, barkeep.

Hey, guys. Sure, go ahead and sit down, both of you. There's plenty of room for everyone. Cybuster and I were just discussing which foot would be appropriate to deliver up the Aerogaters' collective asses.

"Definately the left foot. They don't even deserve my right."

As you can see, it's a discussion almost good enough to make me want to drive that Mk-II S into battle, just for the Rider Kick.

Max: <looks over at Millia>"point taken."

Milllia "What are you two talking about"

Gai and Max together: "Nothing..."

*Max Millia and Gai take a booth near the corner*

well then you're leaving Iron 7 to join our final battle, are you?

Max: "I still don't like sitting on the bridge while earth is hanging in the balance"

can't argue with you there; Barkeep, the usual please.

Barkeep: "coming right up."

*Max and Millia also place orders before the discussion resumes*

Max: "so what are our chances?"

This is the AGGF: 'screw the odds, we have courage'

Max: "some sort of motto?"

for now anyway

Millia: "I think I'll take charge of the sims between now and the commencement of operation SRW."

be my guest.

Max: "one question though; what does SRW stand for?"

*Gai grins* I'm not telling.

At least we got the anima vessel. Considering the streak of luck the AGGF has been having lately I'm insulted that we didn't run into any opposition. Barkeep, the good stuff and I'll buy a round for everyone here since I have nothing else to spend my money on.

*Astonage enters the bar and makes his way over to the corner booth*

yes Astonage?

Astonage: "sorry it took me a while but here's the report you asked for"

let's see, Hmm....*studies the report carefully* that's better than I was hoping.  so the R-1 and R-2 can't be made fully functional.

Astonage: "yes the R-1's damage was really severe and the Tronium engine in the R-2  is always tricky business."

and the DX and GX-bits?

Astonage: "we don't have the needed parts on hand and we don't have enough time to machine them either."

I understand, but why is the Shining still listed as down I thought you said the damage was minor?

Astonage: "mechanically it's fine but something is wrong with the trace system and we don't know if we can figure it out in time for use"

very well then do you need extra hands I can-

Astonage: "no, we have enough mechanics as is any more would just get in the way"

oh one more question have you unpacked the Wilds Mao sent us and analyzed them?

Astonage: "yes, of course they are both WildRaubtier types and have both been customized."

Astonage: "One is a close combat unit that replaces the beam canon with a large beam blade similar to the Strike's and has wired anchors rather than missiles."

Astonage: "The other is a long range type which has a special tail booster to house more missiles and launchers and replaces the standard Beam cannon with a Gatling beam cannon and the knives with small pistols."

and the AM gunner?

Astonage: "ready to go we even have a pilot ready."

who?

Astonage: "It's weird but Shara asked to fly it."

What?

Astonage: "she said something about Jaybee and her making a good team."

I don't think I should look a gift horse in the mouth.  Astonage why don't you don't join us for drinks?

Astonage "I don't see why not."

(Meanwhile on the white star)

Jidlaph: Damn how much longer till the earthlings attack Rafah

Rafah: Patiences big brother our assault on the moon should have provoked them

Jidlaph: Good I can't wait for my rematch with the guy I fought before

Rafah: He should still be in a coma after your last fight with him

Jidlaph: No he's awake  I can feel him the very same way I feel you little brother

Rafah: He could be one of those then if he is then we should give up on converting him

Jidlaph: huh why one of what

Rafah: A altered human can't be converted I don't know why ones here maybe one of the earthling used father's research but I find that hard to believe since father died in the war with the Zovorg.

Jidlaph: I remember thats why we became lady Levi's bodyguards to repay mistress Etzira for taking in war orphans like the two of us

Rafah: it makes me wonder why we didn't enslave the earthlings sooner there already adapted to technology far beyond there capabilities as well as having a large number of powerful psycodrivers.

I guess I'll overcheck Dinah since Exia is out of action for a while. Commander what machines are currently being unused? I am asking because I don't think Dinah will be able to handle all of the fighting without having to recharge a few times which takes a while.

*Jaybee sees the look on her face*
Oh.  I'm sorry.

"Don't be. "
*She looks over to Gai*
"Thank you... for saving him. "

"I have a favor I need, Jay."

You have only to ask.

"Loan me your Stampede."

Beg pard?

"I want to fly in this mission. You know I'm as good as half the people in this bar right now. We need every pilot available out there. Loan me your Stampede. Please."

*Jaybee starts to argue, then stops*
Okay. But only on one condition. I'm not asking you to set your feelings aside, just don't let them cloud your judgement. Promise me that you won't throw your life away in a stupid revenge stunt, and I'll let you take my plane.

"Deal."

I'm serious. If you go back on your word, I'll be seriously pissed.

*Jaybee heads out of the bar for a bit*

"What is that THING doing in this hanger?"

Doctor Radom! No one told me you were coming! What's wrong with the hanger?

"You know good and well what the problem is! It's that pile of alien garbage parked in it!"

Which pile would that be?

"The Huckebein's the only one I see!"

What about the Valkyries? They're built using techniques and materials from the Macross, and powered by advanced microfusion drives derived from the same vessel.
In fact, isn't your own Wildraubtier based on the same overtechnology?

"That's different! It's still human-created! Not like the tronium engine or the gravity controller or the-"
Tesla drive? I think that one's pretty much straight from the alien blueprints. You don't seem to have much of a probl-*SMAAAACK!*

"Don't you DARE accuse me of using overtech. Ever."

Owwww....
Anyways, to what do we owe the... pleasure... of this visit?

"I'm here to fix the Giganscudo you people smashed!"

That's great, but we really don't need more mecha. And what are those crates sitting in my hanger for? They're in the way of the catapults. If we had to scramble now...

"I'd think you'd know better than to keep pushing her by now. Anyways, she's gonna be upgrading it at the same time."
Tasuku!

Radom: "So as you can see, we have a pilot. So quit bothering me and let me work!"
*Radom stalks back into the hanger she just left, yells at some mechanics, and spits on the Huckebein, in a very roundabout path to the Giganscudo's maintenance bay*

Ugh... I'm too sober to deal with her right now. I'm headed back to the bar.
C'mon Tas, I'll buy you a drink.

Post by: Derek on April 18, 2008, 01:05:14 AM
Masaki:....Hey, I just realized something.

Quattro: That you're not completely drunk yet?

Masaki: Besides that. Where'd Derek go?

Quattro: He slipped out a little after letting JayBee sit down. No one else has seemed to really notice, they're too busy enjoying the mood he helped put them in.

Masaki: That's kinda....

Quattro: I know his type. His first thought is to make sure everyone else is doing alright. Once he's done with that, he takes care of his own pre-battle "preparations".

Masaki: "Preparations"?

Quattro: Knowing him, he went off somewhere to brood. Maybe you didn't notice, but he's been a little bit quieter since that Heavyarms came in. He said it was trash and had it disposed of, but I'm sure there was something in it for real.

Masaki:....What, like something from his past?

Quattro: I see you're not that drunk after all.

Masaki: You do this long enough, you start picking up on the signs of backstory hidden in the plot. So, whatever that thing was carrying is bugging him?

Quattro: It couldn't have been anything material, since he wasn't seen carrying anything off. Probably a data file or something.

Masaki: He's been getting a lot of those lately, huh? Any ideas why?

Quattro: Let me tell you a little about the rumors I've heard about the Blue Wings. From what I've heard, they started out here in space. Barona himself is lunarborn, if I recall. Either way, they started as a mercenary unit out here, and that's where they operated. They were mobile suit pilots for hire, basically.

Masaki: Well, that explains it....

Quattro: Explains what?

Masaki: Derek said he'd never piloted up here before, when we first left Earth on the operation at Jupiter. Yet, he didn't really even slow down once the real fighting started. Actually, now that I think about it, he disappeared for about two days right after we first got up here, and came back to get JayBee to help him kill a couple of spy planes nearby.

Quattro: Doesn't surprise me. After the Blue Wings fell apart, he went to Earth and didn't come back. Just ran away from it all. Which explains all the recent problems he's had, too.

Masaki: Old problems coming back to the surface, huh?

Quattro: Basically. Everything he's hidden from for the last two years is coming back to haunt him. Sooner or later, he's going to have to face them.

Masaki:.....That's the sort of thing that can kill a guy's buzz, man. Thanks.

Quattro: *Shrugs* You asked, don't forget that. In the meantime, let's fix that with another round. Bartender!

Title: Re: AGGF part 2
Post by: JayBee on April 18, 2008, 01:56:46 AM
Ya know, it's rare that I'm in a position to do this. I'm gonna exploit the situation right now.

*Jaybee slips out of the bar while the brawl is distracting everyone, then heads towards a shuttle hanger*

Radom shouldn't be in here... and I don't need guns for a short hop like this. Well, not unless someone figures out what I'm doing, in which case all the guns in the world won't help me... honestly, these people have no-"Hey! What're you doing?"

*Jaybee jumps, then relaxes*
Oh, it's just you, Mike. I'm making a quick run to the Hagane for a bit. Catch up with people, talk shop for a little bit.

"Can't you just use the comm? And why the hell are you skulking around like a- Wait a minute. SHE'S there. I will never understand you."

It cheers her up. And her cheer's contagious. It's good for morale.

"Yeah, but it encourages her to make MORE of those vile drinks! And since no one wants to upset her, they have to suffer through that disgusting sludge! That's NOT good for morale. In fact, it's as far from good as humanely possible."

Not my fault you can't appreciate Gryphon cuisine.

"NO ONE can appreciate Gryphon cuisine. And those... things... she makes aren't a Gryphon recipe anyways."

Actually, I'm pretty sure they're based on one. If not, she got amazingly close through sheer chance.

"That's... horrifying. How did you people ever survive a meal?"

Most terrans like vinegar-soaked cucumbers.  Don't talk to me about disgusting food.

"Pickles are GOOD!"

Keep telling yourself that, friend.
I'll be back in a little while. Don't tell ANYONE what I'm doing. You're the only one that knows, and I wanna keep it that way.

"Don't worry. I don't want to see you dead until AFTER the Balmarians leave.
But so help me, if she ever passes me another one of those 'drinks'  I'm gonna beat you to death myself as soon as I recover enough to lift anything."

Feh.
By the way, you gonna be flying the Double-Zeta again?

"Actually, I was thinking about giving that Wildbuster a try. Seems like a pretty nice mech. I'm gonna do some sim tests before I commit, but... "

Yeah. The 'Raubtier's a pretty good base, from a Valk pilot's perspective.


Anyways...
*Jaybee starts the shuttle warming up*
As soon as you're out of the hanger, I'm taking off.

"Gotcha. Don't get caught."

*Mike closes the airlock behind him and secures it. The hanger depressurizes and opens out to space.*

Sheesh. All this secrecy for a little home-grown beverage. I've had actual missions that were less covert.

Why?

The captain will be hee soon

Trust me you won't regret it

Mors Certissima: So they got the Messiah up and running again

Pike: Yes and  I see your doing well Mors Certissima, Chaostic.

Chaostic: The Messiah wow it toke this long to fix sorry about that captain.

Pike: Don't be. It was sabotage, a attempt on my life at that.

Mors Certissima: It seems like I missed something interesting

Chaostic: no not really

Pike&Chaostic: Hahahahaha

Pike: Ah... good times

Mors Certissima:?

Pike: Anyway Temps and the others will be here soon it a shame that the "Mysticism" isn't up in running but it couldn't be helped

Chaostic:?

Mors Certissima: A Valstork class as I recall the photon drive broke down

Pike: True and after what happened to "Knight" and "Nihil" we lost our best engineer as well as two fine men

Chaostic: Who are...Oh!

Pike: But I do have some good newsbut I comes with bad news

Mors Certissima: Well tell us already.

Pike: The Aerogators destroyed the Cyber Newtype Reserch Center before making the 30 day truce they captured almost all of the test subjects but a few escaped with the researchers.

Chaostic: The old man!

Pike: is fine.*turn back to the Messiah* you can come out now

*a pair of kids about 8 or 9 climb out of the valhawk*

???&???: ...

Pike don't worry there just a little shy.*turns to the kids* this two are good friends of the doc you can trust them.*the kids face brighten sightly* ok see there nice

Mors Certissima: Hello I'm Mors and this is my brother Chaostic*both Mors and Chaostic flashes award winning smiles*

kids: One-san! Aniki! One-san! Aniki!*kids run in circles around Mors and Chaostic*

Pike: I don't know there names but until two days ago all they said was "AGGF" and I'm told the one in the green shirt is male and the one in brown is female

Kid1: Aniki take.

Kid2: Us to

Kids: the commander.

Mors Certissima: *whispering to Pike* twins always creep me out with that.

Pike: yeah me to

*Chaostic walks off with the twins hoping for the best*

You just don't.

"You're probably right. I can't put my finger on it, but that thermos 'feels' wrong. It's like there's a malicious aura emanating from it. I can't say I've ever felt a reaction like that from an inanimate object before. Keep that thermos away from me, if you don't mind."

I'm glad you all made it. 

Operation SRW will be held as a joint operation between our ships and the collected forces of the EF.  and will be carried out in several phases.

Phase I-----------------------
this phase is hoped to be a one hit kill; we along with several EF ships will strike with all our MAPWs and reaction weapons. It is calculated that should more than 78% of our weapons strike the target it will be destroyed. if it fails ew will move onto phase two

Phase II----------------------
If the all out nuclear  strike should fail we are to escort the Hagane into close proximity to the star where it will fire it's Tronium Cannon and break through the enemy shield and outer hull in oder to start Phase III

Phase III----------------------
after the Hagane blasts a hole into the White Star all available mechs will proceed into the White Star to seek out and destroy the primary controller and destroy it. if successful we should be able to stop all of the Aerogator mechs.


I'm aware this plan is somewhat simple but it was the plan that had the highest foreseeable chances of success.

any questions?


Title: Re: AGGF part 2
Post by: Derek on April 19, 2008, 07:19:08 PM
Heh. Classic Feds strategy. Start off with throwing nukes at it and hope that solves the problem. I'm just glad they seem to have a backup plan, even if it is pretty much just to rely on the rest of us to do the job for them.

Sorry for going over your head just a little bit on this, Commander, but I'm hanging on to the nuke we've got loaded in Phys, just in case. Too many people nowadays are used to the idea of pre-emptive shots, and I don't feel like wasting one of our trump cards on a Phase 1. Especially not when we pretty much ARE Phases 2 and 3.

Re...booted? how is that possible and who is that?

Dr.Recarda: Slowdown first of all they where nearly deactivated (in fact a few of them were but you don't need to know that) a few were even infected by some kind of virus that was the source of those fits you been having. As to how its part of a emergency protocol I built in to there subroutines I mean are all of you "tears" are morons or something honestly.

S...sorry doctor.

Dr. Recarda: No don't be truth is the blame lies solely with me, I used you kids for my own ends after all that I did to you... you..

Doctor that maybe true but you also saved us more times then i can count

Dr.Recarda: Good that means the nanites are fully awake now

Well I was going t ask you to do that but 20.4 thats a bit high ain't it?

Once again, classic Feds. Even Spacey can pull their heads out, if the situation's bad enough.
Hey, we believe everything goes away if you pump enough nukes into it too.
We just believe in pumping them in through unconventional means. Which makes it a surprisingly effective strategy.

The feds haven't accounted for the shielding and armor on that damned battle station. Or the sheer volume of it. They're throwing pebbles at a 500-pound gorilla.


I'm with Derek. Unless Admiral Kridanik or Major Jenius say otherwise, UNSpacey will be sitting the initial bombardment out. Which I'm sure means the Feddies will blame us when the attack fails.

...

Hmmm... I wonder if that's why the EF originally commissioned the Kurogane. It always struck me as a silly design, but the drill on the front is PERFECT for that kind of attack.
Too bad they never put the UNS barrier system on the Space Noah class. Makes it just a tad suicidal.

"The barrier didn't seem to make your last attack run any less suicidal."

Hey. Masaki. Shut up.
We've all seen you flake out and run off because you think you have a shot at going toe-to-toe with the Granzon. You've got no room to talk about stupid stunts. At least mine benefited the team instead of putting everyone at risk for a poorly-planned attempt at petty vengeance.

*Masaki jumps up and makes a fist. He starts to speak, but Jaybee cuts him off. *

There's an old saying... If you can't take the heat, stay out of the kitchen.  
*Jaybee leans back in his chair and raises his left hand, palm inwards. Sparks arc across his knuckles.*
Now I'd think LONG and HARD before throwing that punch. I'm a trained professional with years of experience and cybernetic implants intended to make me more dangerous in a fight.
You may get the first hit. But it's the ONLY one you'll get.

"Are you threatening me?"

No. I'm warning YOU to not threaten ME.
Now sit back down, before someone gets hurt. We need you in full health for the upcoming attack.

I understand your side. Ask that cyborg corpse we threw out the airlock if you think I don't.
But there's a time and a place for it.

"You underestimate Shuu."

Probably. I don't have your experience with him. And I don't believe any of us knows the entire story, yourself included.
But I know enough to realize that I wouldn't stand a chance in a solo battle against the Granzon. Do you honestly believe you would?

*Masaki sits down, slowly*

I'll take that as a concession of the point.

I promise that when the time comes, I'll personally help take him down. I owe you one, and I'm not inclined to let a madman run around with something that powerful.  We got a deal?

"Yeah... I suppose."

Like I said, classic Feds. They've got no imagination for how to deliver a nuke attack. They're probably just gonna launch everything and hope a few don't get shot down. Or worse, knowing how easily the Aerogaters have danced around most of the Feddie's tech so far, they're gonna screw with the targetters on the things and send them right back at us.

Now, personally, my idea of how to deliver a nuke is to slight of hand it. Decoys, misdirection, pull a whole damn magic show with it. Any number of ways to pull it off, if you have even a little bit of creativity in your head. Course, I'm not gonna give any examples. We all know the one about magicians and their secrets, after all.

No offense to Mr. Jenius, but didn't something along those lines fail, at one point?

Besides, as someone who doesn't have access to fold generators on a whim, I'm far more biased towards the idea of firing wave after wave after wave of normal missiles from all sides and slipping a nuke in at some point along the way.

I didn't say this at the briefing (because the EF was monitoring us at the time and I don't think this would go over well with them)

but I plan to launch our nukes in a slightly different manner than usual

I've got a large rail gun system which will be attached to the Duragriez; we'll set the missiles to impact detonation and launch them like bullets.

this way we won't have to worry about their guidance being tampered with.

what do you all think?

Of course, can't have anyone tampering with it before it's needed

Title: Re: AGGF part 2
Post by: JayBee on April 21, 2008, 01:20:37 AM
Right. You can count on me.

...

By the way, if we're going ahead with the nuking, I think it may benefit us to use a two-stage missile. Tip them with a shaped charge, let that cut through the shields, and then have the nuke impact on the armor.

Better still...  If we can encase them in a kinetic penetrator. Wedge them INSIDE the armor before they detonate, and you minimize the wasted energy. Sure it's a silly complicated projectile, but the results are worth it. Especially with a railgun pre-boosting the missiles.


I think we have three such missiles on the Focker. I'll have to check with Mike.
Admittedly, it's not a lot. But if we crack the shell, it's gonna make everything else a lot more effective.

I recommend loading them in the middle. Fire a few regular nukes to crack the shields, fire the bunker-busters to crack the armor, then fire everything else down the hole. Worst case scenario, nothing happpens. Slightly less worse scenario, we're throwing nukes into a crater. Best case, the buster missiles blow the enemy's defenses wide open and we rain thermonuclear death down onto a virtually unarmored interior.

I'd still like to hold some back for the final phase, but I'm more confident this will do something besides impress them with our impotence now.



The DOWNSIDE is that once the first shells hit, we'll be firing blind until the proverbial smoke clears. Nothing like flooding an area with tremendous amounts of EM and particle radiation to scramble a sensor suite.

If that's your idea of a downside, I must laugh and quietly scoff at your reliance on sensors in order to blow things up.

"But Derek-sama, you rely on sensors too! If something happened to the ARC Visor, you'd be completely blind for real!"

The DOWNSIDE is that once the first shells hit, we'll be firing blind until the proverbial smoke clears. Nothing like flooding an area with tremendous amounts of EM and particle radiation to scramble a sensor suite.

(Shit, I asked her not to tell him!)
Well, they DO taste a lot like a popular drink from my homeworld.

*Bullet makes a shocked expression*
