Isabelle says to the Jockey trooper, jerking a thumb at her collar.
Alright, listen up! All you maggots get in line!First things off--newcomers! Pick a background, a name, a class, and a trip. You get 300 Cloves to buy your equipment, and 100 of that is taken away for training. This means you only have 200 to spend on weaponry, ammo, kinves--whatever you like. Hop to it!
Seems like our mission site is pretty straightforward if not a little undeveloped in the photography side, scouts says theres a lot of kashirn movement and a lot of mobile emplacements but it looks like they intend to hold down the voss coming in from those gates...
>>19523265>per Private Konnair's request, use sixty cloves to upgrade the rating of both guns seven times>return guns to Private Konnair
For those interested in armor training, we have Jockeys and Femtos available. Now, since I don't expect any of you maggots to have trust funds to draw funds from, we have financing available. I would highly recommend you take a loan out on a GI fund to finance your mech or plane!
For all of you footpounders, here's your equip list! First, all the small arms you could ever dream of!
>>19523324And here's the second part of the equipment list--rations, armor, sidearms, and explosives.

>>19523291Alright gents, listen up! Got our orders straight from command.Our objective this op is rescue of a High Value Individual--the individual in question being the uncle to the contact you picked up last op, young Princess Salazar. Her uncle has been fighting off the Voss for quite awhile, and it is in our contact's best interest that he is kept safe and rescued. The locale for this operation is Redemption Gate, one of the many gateways into the Kashir holy cities. You will be deploy by plane on to the gate. From there, our objectives are to locate the HVI and extract him.Enemy strength and force composition are unknown, though it is suspected that both Kashir and Voss forces will be gunning for us--the former because previous it does not seem as though there is any legible way of showing to the Kashir that we mean no harm to them other than bringing Salazar along--a coruse of action that I *will* not risk; and the latter because Voss forces have been attacking the gate--and indeed the rest of the Skylands--for quite some time. Expect heavy weapon emplacements, enemy armor, and possible aerial support, in addition to ground troops. The Voss are present in the area, so be advised that Ghouls and Haunts are a possiblity.Intel has made it known that we will not be deploying everyone in force; rather, a staggered deployment, involving successive waves of troops, will be the plan. So, I will begin taking roster by asking this: who wishes to land as part of the first wave?

Okay, here's our drop plans. There's a small, unprotected pocket on the SE corner of the map. We'll be dropping right in there.

I have a proposal, Hassan: let the Cloven fight alongside your Kashir, and together we can beat back the Voss terrorizing Redemption Gate. After the Voss have been routed, you come with us and be reunited with Princess Salazar. We shall not set foot in the the temple, but we shall do all we can to ensure the gate holds.

>>19531032>>19530555Those Duocopters were just a vanguard force; next wave of Vosskon resistance is gonna be the Halberds, no doubt carrying troops and armor.You two Jocks can come as part of the 3rd wave. There's not that much space up front, so deploy yourselves accordingly. Dragon, there's a stairwell right SW of Sphinx's current position--recommend you drop in there and help us reinforce the left. Chimera, see if you can't fill in that spot full of dead infantry right N of the MG tower in the center.All units be advised, there are some dropped Crusader rifles right in that area north of the MG tower--see if we can't hand them off to some of the other Kashir--we're gonna need all the firepower we can get.
>>19532147Hum....Do you think that with proper timing I could get dropped right on an Halberd? I recall those ships's decks to be big enough for tanks and mechs. That is if that's a good idea, if not I'l drop where you asked me too.
I SEE.Not a Single Copter is Left. My suspicions have been confirmed, we're dealing with Clovis. Pandemon:Y- You MEAN THOSE PACIFISTS HAVE DECLARED WAR ON US ? KRUSSER INFORM THE STATESMEN, WE WILL MOBI-Krusser: No. They are not, sir. It is a small force. They can arguably be mercenaries. Or a splinter force. In any case if we send in our Halberds now, we will lose them early as they are unsupported by our aircraft. Not to mention the superior range and firepower of their mercenaries will let them attack conveniently while Hassan shores up his ranks.Captain, Take us up to the sky. I wish to try something with the engineering team, before this storm hits....
>>19532599No Freaking way. Voss IN MY AIR SUPERIORITY ?
>>19532147"Sir, We'd do it, but we're hurting as is. We got hit hard in that first run... They got one of us, but we're still functional. Plan on moving to the, now, vacant tower and mending what we can."

And gains these free benefits couresy of Hassan.-Wounded Units may take a lunch break [-1 ration] and gain full health. Dead squaddies will be replaced with a loyal Kashirn Conscript, to be sworn to your unit FOR LIFE. For this battle, however - they only have 1hp and opts for a monkey see monkey do approach in which they can only perform actions your unit is capable of and of course only uses what weapons you supply them.-[Free] Your weapons maybe reloaded with one clip of basic ammo so long as the weapon is Tier 3 or lower. - Mechanical Units can repair what surface damage has been incurred on their craft. But for things like lost limbs, or broken parts must take a full turn [Housed] action similar to an NCA for the next or however many turns they wish to spend until their situation improves. They will not be counted as in combat however, and if all buildings housing units are destroyed they die along with it. >A sub note about CLovis Equipment. Due to the lack of supply lines, your only option of replacement weaponry or mechanical equipment is limited to:> Salvaged Voss Technology> Improvised Kashirn Weapons> Famed exotic monsters are rumored to be in Kashir's arsenal are yours to find and purchase with an NCA and a decent price in Cloves.

"Let's see, there was that halberd I wrecked and the six troops on board it, then the two I spiked on the cliffs... nine kills! Does the halberd still only count as one?"
Well done, all! Good fight! Jackal, Dracon, get me an engineering team down to those tanks those Officers were piloting--see if we can't salvage something useful, maybe bring something back. Hassan, if you could come with us, as per our agreement? I am sure your niece is more than delighted at the prospect of being reunited with you in person.>>195538961,000 cloves...Yes.

It would also seem that 16 of Hassan's personal servants are safe and as promised, 100c for each one of them." And now, Uncle, We've upheld our bargain of allowing you a few weeks from the front.

"Anndd...160. I say we keep the halberd," he mutters over the still open com.
>>19553960Ah yes. Dear Shezarade, your half sister has fled and placed herself under the watchful eye of Voss. and so, to check on them, I've sent Deus to retrieve her but has fallen to the same fate as well. Fortunately for us, they have fallen for the same watchful eye of the Royal Guard. One of the most honorable warriors of Voss that I wish had seen in this battle. Using the Owl of Sages, I can divine where they are, provided that we gather enough clues about them.

" You sent Deus on such a dangerous Task ? What are you thinking ! " Hassan:It is not what you think, my dear Shezarade, in your Father's madness he has gathered up Children linked with dark fates, in order to turn them into monsters with powers comparable to the celestial ones. And it would seem that your servant, took it upon herself to seek VENGEANCE on the Voss that has left her damaged so. "
