    All that is used for it was scrap.

    The Grabro's main camera is down, so it can't see you. You hop onto the hull and fill it full of paint. That's two down. All of the sudden, a single paint round pings off your shield. Jolyne curses over the comm, as you turn to see the GM.

    My problem with having the players roll dice is that someone is probably bound to get the required roll. If they do, then well, it will always hit. It's just easier. Feel free to make a case, though; I'd enjoy being proven wrong.

    Differentfag here, you could always say "I'll take the third roll", or always take the first roll.

    Zakus are easy enough to handle, so let's hit the non-Zaku first. Firing in a spread might be a good plan, since this thing is probably more maneuverable than a Zaku.

    These are no Zaku. Boy, no Zaku at all.

    "Attention Zeon soldiers! This is Commander Garma Zabi! We are NOT your enemies! I repeat, we are NOT your enemies! We do not have to fight!"

    There is a tense silence on the comm channel.

    "But Commander Garma," says a girl's voice, sickly sweet, yet full of bile, "what if we WANT to fight?!" With that, the lead unit fires on the bridge. You dash over and block the shot, at the cost of your shield. That unit is powerful.

    A blast of green light tears out of the ruined catapult, striking Bloody Mary.

Diez and Lister, who piloted the Ground Type and the GMDam respectively, both let out a low whistle as they see the new Gundam.

You keep looking for 5 more minutes, and come away empty-handed. Hopping down, you walk back to Lister and Diez. "It must have been on autopilot or something," you say, guilelessly.

    Garma shakes his head. "Right now, let's stay together. If something is out there, we'll deal with it from here. Right now we need to focus on making it to Jaburo in time."

    As for the unit, no one seems to recognize it, but it's unmistakably Zeon...

    Did we get any upgrade points or anything from the battle? Are we even still doing that?

    We are still doing that, but no upgrade points were earned.

    Okay, if we've got some free time, let's go down to our Elmeth and make sure it's still in working condition. We haven't used it since we entered Earth's gravity well, but it was our first unit, and Shannon was originally an MA pilot.

    What in the actual fuck? Why exactly are we trying to give away the supernatural plot point suit, again? We probably have the highest potential with it.

    This decision makes no sense to me.

    Only the Daemonball is supernatural, as near as we can tell. The 7 is just a Gundam, though a later model than the Prototype.

    If a ghost conjures up a sammich out of nowhere, and gives me the sammich, I'd still consider the sammich to be pretty fucking unusual. I certainly wouldn't try to hand it off to someone else.

    Do you consider the Gundam Hammer supernatural? It, too, was summoned by the power of Side 2. Sometimes a sammich is just a sammich, regardless of source.

    I am not averse to taking the 7 and giving the Prototype to Lister, but we did already say he could take it.

    Lister is still a better overall pilot than Shannon, and is more likely to get a better performance from the 7 than Shannon is.

    Shannon, however, is the main character, and also a newtype. Both of those are pluses in gundam-verse. I'm also going to assume we've got the version ori's shown, which has magnetic coated joints and connection points for upgrades. I'm thinking not only will Lister not be able to control the 7th gundam effectively, but we might also be able to put a bit control array on it and turn it into a real "newtype weapon".

    Shannon may not be the best pilot in our lineup, but she's the only one that can ever hope to use the new suit to its maximum potential. And I'd rather have him find out sooner rather than later how out-of-control the thing is, so that he doesn't get himself killed when it surprises him on the battlefield.

    To that end, I'd like to suggest an in-depth rundown on the new suit's design. It probably would have been prudent in-game anyway. It did, after all, materialize and fly itself.

    Because my internet connection is being such shit, I'm going to end this installment here, and start another soon. That alright?

    Sure. It's near auto-sage anyway.
