    "Right, let's go over the details of the mission." You say, as the team gathers around a projector screen Mooch has set up. "We were hired by a corp called Rayleonard to help salvage some form of failed experiment. Mooch?"

    "Rayleonard specializes in energy based technology. Anywhere from more efficient batteries to reactors for Cores to power-plants for cities. This computer, the plant that ran Hope, your core, that generator on the tool truck in the corner? All got their stamp on it. Rayleonard is one of the Global 'Super-Corps', One of only about 15 worldwide. In terms of power and resources they're comparable to a small nation. A small, Very wealthy Nation."

    "Right. We've been tasked as a security escort for one of their science teams. Apparently they think there's going to be trouble for them. Probably bandits, or maybe another Corp planning to make a grab for the tech before they can get it."

    Laurie raises a hand "Where exactly are we going?"

    "We're going to be meeting them just South of the city limits. Info from there gets vague, but it looks like there was a research facility of the eastern end of Lake Mead. I f we aren't going there, it's gotta be close. Anybody else have any questions?"

    "Standard escort formation. We'll be bringing Ari's rig along just in case, but just me, Laurie, and Dave will be mounted up to start with."


    "No idea, we're just an escort. We'll try and leave that sort of decision to the people paying us."


    "Either bandits trying to roll us, or some other corp's snatch team. Can't imagine anybody else even having a REASON to be out there. As for specifics... not a whole lot of intel from the area. Not much right there other than the top secret research facility."

    Satisfied with how things look, you give a quick heads up to your team. They all shoot you an acknowledgement of your order, and signal that they're ready.

    Without further delay, the cores are loaded and the carrier moves out.

    Before long you're sent a hailing signal from the leader of thier in-house security, a man who introduces himself as Berlioz.

    You take the call.

    "You're Zin? Leader of your little squad?"


    "Berlioz. How many cores have you got?"

    "Six. Three will be ready for a running patrol in ten minutes, others kept on reserve."

    "Acknowledged. Any room in the hangar?"

    "maybe enough to Squeeze in another Core if we tried. Why?

    "Because I'm coming over to brief you in person. I don't like broadcasting sensitive information."

    You order one of the bay doors open, and you see a core come sliding in moments later. It looks strange compared to other cores you've seen, almost lanky and gaunt. It's also slightly taller than any of the other rigs in your bay, save Ari's heavy core.

    After it lands, it kneels slightly, and you see the Ace's custom emblem on the side. It's a simple crimson drip off of a Guillotine's edge.

    Then the man, who you assume is Berloiz himself, climbs down out of the cockpit and walks over to you across the hanger floor. He has the same presence as his core: dark and foreboding, but not evil. Like walking through an old graveyards and feeling the eyes of the departed on you.

    He stops about six feet away from your team. "Here safe to talk? Or do you want to go somewhere more private?"

    "We have a proper briefing room just up those stairs. Bit more private, plus it has screens and such."

    "Convenient." he comments, before giving a simple 'lead on' gesture. You go to the room, and Mooch slides him the control tablet. The seven of you sit down.

    "This is Lake Mead," He says, pulling up a picture of a large body of water. "That little red mark is where our lab used to be, and the experiment escaped containment. The subject, a mentally unstable man who answers to Q-Tip stole an advanced prototype core from Rayleonard."

    "Wait," Dave cuts in "I thought this was a recovery mission, us running security while you guys went in and cleaned up."

    "And you were told a lie. Not my choice, but the higher-ups wanted some secrecy. This man was brilliant, but unstable. We brought him in to protect him from enemies he made, but he took advantage of our goodwill and plots terrible things with an advanced Core. We can't have that, because that would be an unspeakable tragedy for him to land in, say, Vegas and start blowing up random civilians in the suberbs on the western outskirts." So he clearly knows exactly who you are. "Besides," He adds in a deadpan "That would be bad for business. So my mission is to kill him before he escapes the perimeter, marked as that blue circle. Yours is to stay with the Caravan, because if he breaks out, the Egg-heads are going to reel him right in. Perfect bait, not that they'll like that. Which is why I never told them."

    He looks around. "Any questions?"

    "Shmuck bait, more than likely. You probably won't see any action, since I'm here personally with some of my support team. If however, he breaks containment and you can drop him before he does something terrible to the 'recovery team'," He actually does the little finger quotes thing "I'll make sure a little extra is thrown your way."


    >Generally bad form to ask how many people you can let die before you get in trouble.

    >Also, salvage rights on highly experimental classified proprietary technology there's there to specifically contain? Really?


    "Sadly, a lot of the information about either my core or his is off the table, just because Rayleonard's very hush hush about such things. Since you know, we have to worry about corporate espionage. I can however tell you that the stolen experimental core is very unsubtle and very high speed. Literal walls of fire and such. It will be VERY obvious. It's also got some sort of experimental energy shielding. It's not AMAZING, so if you throw enough bullets at it it'll die, shortly followed by the core itself. Luckily other than the shield and the pretty big guns it's got, it's pretty fragile. Any other information is 'need to know', and frankly: you don't."

    This shielding is interesting, we should try to use energy weapons on it if at all possible.

    Thanks for giving us that much despite the policy to keep us in the dark.

    I'm guessing if I ask you who exactly you were I'd be told it was classified but I may as well check.

    I can't think of anything else to ask so we may as well go sortie.

    We'll want to find places with good visibility, large amounts of cover and a narrow lane of approach so we can fill him with dakka.

    Our goal if the guy doesn't get taken out is to unload as much Dakka and explosions on the guy as possible as fast as possible so Ari's AC is probably more suited to it.

    Then again she is our Albatross and Mooch is our best pilot so toss Ari in Overwatch and this hopefully won't bite us in the ass.

    She beat our Synch rate, I'm not sure that's fair. Also with that Synch rate if she gets hit the feedback will massively suck for her, she's not used to it and I doubt her toughness is as absurdly good as ours.

    Thanks for the info, you probably won't be able to catch up with him but give it a shot. We have positions to get as much fire downrange as possible, if we can't take him out quickly but are able to delay him the smallest bit I'd like you on his ass to take advantage of any loss of speed he may experience.

    Get into position to intercept and have the most overlapping fire available. Our first priority is taking him out, keeping the pilot or core alive is secondary.

    If he gets close Mooch and Dave will intercept further and try to double team him with melee while Elsie and us keep on blasting dakka.

    Do you suggest that if he gets close that we let him get in melee with Elsie and Alex?

    It is suboptimal I agree but his shield is down, and hopefully we will damage something important or take it out before it gets to that point and we'll delay having to melee as along as possible. But out of all of the people to cross swords with this guy Mooch and Dave are the better choices. If we can't take him out we just have to delay him and live long enough for Berlioz to catch back up.

    We delay and missle spam and shoot it out as long as possible but if it gets way too close those two are the ones who have to stab it.

    You calculate your options, setting up a kill box might be the most effective way to deal with him, but if it's too loose he could slip though and hit the Caravan you're supposed to be guarding. If it's too tight, and he's half as fast as he seems to be, he could go around you and score some kills before you could try and intercept.

    You could also go on the offensive, but that holds it's own risks....

    [ ] Loose staggered formation.
    [ ] Tight, hidden kill-zone.
    [ ] Try and take the offensive.
    [ ] Ask Ari and Lawrence for additional data.

    Tight hidden kill zone. The job is to protect the egg heads, so lets do that regardless of whether this makes the mission more difficult or not. going on the offensive would just give him the chance to blow right on past us.

    This is the best tactic for now. Loosely spread net, not easy pickin' but not clumped together and easy to go around.

    A scream of denial, of Rage and pain, as the enemy core begins to get back on his feet, clearly in pain.

    You get a good look at it for the first time.

    You feel it focus on you, being the closest target. You're reminded of the battle with Nine-ball in Hope, but while that was a focused, eerily calm presence... this feels like a maddened beast. Like a rabid dog lashing out for something to kill.

    The blow decapitates the core, and Dave leaps back, expecting that it would be an easy kill.

    But that's when the thing goes fucking berserk.

    Ari managed to keep calm, tell the retrieval team to run when Elsie first brought it out of the sky. Now you don't have to worry about them, just the maddened monstrosity in front of you. Berlioz says he and his partner are only a minute out, but you aren't sure you'll survive that long.

    It stops suddenly, mid spasm, and points it's remaining arm directly at you, and you see a burst of plasma start to build...

    Strafing run, it's probably better able to retaliate at closer ranges where it can sense us better.

    Use our high mobility and our stability while boosting to keep our distance and cause more damage before we get close to it.

    Strafing runs involve running, and avoidance, like prey. We are not prey. Also that would be time consuming. Commence attacks for the jugular.

    You shoot your missiles high, and the core ducks, instinctively.

    You unload, right into his head. Or where his head would be, if Dave hadn't taken it off. The bullets travel down the much weaker-unarmored neck of the core, and you can hear the reactor scream and it gets shredded by bullets and laser blasts.

    In the next few moments, your core seems to know the danger's passed, and extinguishes it's generator before the breech can can you. As the cameras dim, and the core disengaged from your mind, you can see the core in front of you light up. As the cockpit goes dark, you can feel the shockwave hit the outside of your core, and you get picked up and thrown like a rag-doll.

    'Oh goody' you think, as unconsciousness claims you. 'THIS again.'

    Well thankfully I think Rayleonard has already written Q-Tip off as bust and considered getting the mech back even in more than one piece as a happy surprise and not an expected result.

    Hopefully they count any damage we take from this under "expenses". We might even get a bit of a bonus as Berlioz said he'd try to make sure we got one if it slipped past him and we dealt with it, though they might count our bonus as fixing up our core.

    Keep the crunch thread alive, and I'll post something cool on it later.

    And something cool right now: the ARETHA was an S class threat.

    One Heavy, two bandits pre-quest, flail-guy and the NEXT: Alex just technically made Ace.

    Considering that they held back that info specifically so that they could get away with paying us as little as possible, I'd be pretty surprised if they didn't try to weasel out of paying us anything at all. Hell, they might actually try to charge us for damaging their company property.

    Yeah, technically they agreed to operating expenses. Which includes core-repair, and spent ammo. Any money you get would be IN ADDITION TO that.

    And then we just threaten to let slip that Rayleonard shafted us on payment for a job.
    Good luck hiring any Ravens once you have a reputation for ripping 'em off!
    >> AC-Guy 04/19/12(Thu)07:02 No.18778515

    You just killed something that two of their Aces let slip away.
    Plus, Duke already HAD a conversation with a G.A. America boy who thought stiffing a Raven was a good idea.

    And by 'conversation' I mean 'Single-handedly wrecked their compound and dangled him off the side of his own building until he pissed himself'.

    Word has gotten around that a global guild of highly trained mercenaries is a TERRIBLE group to fuck with.
