>>19902089>>19902288"It's not that I'm against your wedding or anything!" Gunther yells as he dodges another tentacle. "I'm just in the middle of something called TRYING TO NOT DIE HORRIBLY!"Finally, he activates his jet pack, getting enough distance from the tentacles and getting a few seconds of breathing room."OKAY! I'm only going to say this once and only once!" He points Isane. "YOU! DO YOU SAY YES!?" And then points to Armitage, "YOU! DO YOU SAY YES?!"Before he even stops to listen to their reply, he then yells, "GOOD. IN THE POWERS VESTED IN THIS TANK PILOT WHO TOTALLY IS NOT QUALIFIED TO MARRY PEOPLE, YOU ARE NOW WIFE AND WIFE. KISS AND START KILLING THESE FUCKERS ALREADY!"

THE FILTHY RAGNYLLIANS DARE TO ESCAPE HELL ITSELF ? WE'LL SEE TO IT THAT NO ONE ESCAPES THE SUPREME AUTHORITY OF DEATH ! FOR THE GLORY OF VOSS ! AVENGE THE PRINCE'S HONOR ! DEATH FOR THE DEATHGOD ! NONE OF THESE COWARDS SHALL ESCAPE !
"Always. Why does it always go FUBAR? Can't I catch a break? At least once?"Wolf pats all his pouches in a quick equipment check.
>>19903615...Perhaps I've been farther away from the motherland than I thought.
>>19903645"Hahahaha being dead is so much fun."
" Gussss ? " Well well if it isn't my favorite skirmishing partner ! How's the border patrol going ? Being dead working out for you ? Did you get that last arrow I sent you ? "
>>19903615"I did not die for the prince for this! You have lost grasp of Prince Vilkas' vision!"
"This is stupiiiiiiid!"
>>19903615"FINALLY a familiar enemy! It's Vosskon stomping time!"
This age is too savage for the Prince's vision. He held out his hand for a better world and you all casted it away with your selfishness and strife. You do not deserve, in fact the reason that I cannot find him in this hell means that you cannot even comprehend his light. I will see this world taken under and I'll drag the rest of you with us while Thanatos cleanses this world for a newer utopia ! "
" Hmmmmm zounds like you were saving it for schoolboy, for I hev never met a tighter noose than you. Here, my lady, let me oblige you with a poison you deserve ~"
>>19903879"Dunno about where you come from, but in Ragnyll 'holding your hand out' doesn't include armed invasion, you crazy bitch!"
"This is going to be a pointless fight Supreme Commander, this is hell, we'll both just keep coming back again and again, a never ending battle. You know the Helghast's record, what makes you think we won't win again this time? Save yourself the trouble and just stop, stop being so delusional."
>>19903879No more words, Dead Brigade. My business will be with these mortals. ======= To Be Continued.> Thanks for playing ! > Mission confirm will be tonight at 6-7 est.
>>19903879"The Prince believes in life, not death! This new Voss I see, it is not the grandiose red of dawn sun, it is the red of caked blood on the streets. The dawn sun that bathes everyone in its light! That is what the Prince is to me, who would but die on the streets, purposeless like the bloodshed that unfolds, without his guidance!"
"Vosskon forces? This is Sgt. Wolf of the ODF. Bravo Company. I am unaffiliated with either of your forces. May I pass and leave this place to return to my dimension? Over."
>>19903900Ohh ? you think that you can simply keep coming back again and again to pester me can you ? My job, while pointlessly enjoyable is rather effective. I only need to keep you down while every legion in Thanatos's ranks consume you until hteres nothing left to bring back. The Vinculum gate will be nothing more than a dream to you ! AND I WILL BE YOUR WAKING NIGHTMARE EVERYDAY ! "
>>19903947Isane just stares blankly."You should really calm down. Regardless, the Helghast killed you once, of course we can do it again. We'll just beat you down, slip on out, and leave you here to fester in your own misdirected rage."
>>19903947Mercy me! Since when did the Voss ranks entertain the likes of demi-humans? I do not remember such fare fighting alongside us at Nirvana!
>>19903947"Hum. Gustav Fierstrom? My brother Lendur says you fought with him at Heaven's Gate. In the twisting course of our time here it's no wonder we never met before. Tell me, when did Voss begin following these gods of death? Last I remembered, we were dying in the desert to save our Prince from such a monstrosity."
>>19909265Lets just say, shit happened.
>>19903947Commander?! When did you die? You seemed fine alongside the Voss brass when we were fighting the kashir on zanzibar. I'm curious to know how did this little province apparently got to war with us...You, Ragnylls, what year is this. I may be a Royal Guard but this situation would not have happened with the prince we knew.
Looks like no game tonight, folks. Stay tuned, though--game might be on for tomorrow.
Mission Confirm will be tomorrow night. at 8-9 est.

>>19919064Well yeah, haven't you caught on by now? I mean, less than an hour after being resuscitated from being pasted across the sand, she spent 16 straight hours grafting those limbs to you.

Geez, what do you do during all those appointments?

"Tell those guys mopping up the plaza to take two squads and sweep the sewers. I want VVardog and Assault teams to sweep the rest of Peace--I'd rather there be no more surprises today.""Yes, ma'am.""I want this area contained." Ella steeled her gaze on the young soldier, the Eye of Shiva seemingly glowing in the night light. "Get it done, trooper.""Right away." The assault mook saluted before dashing off. Ella continued her walk through the town, surveying the damage done by the Cloven special forces group that had assaulted the city several minutes prior. Her bodyguard and attached Corpsier flanked either side of her, another Vulcan team taking up the rear. The procession made their way through town, soldiers and civilians parting way for the little group."Rotten, despicable, lowlife /vermin/," Ella's hand gripped her pistol tighter as she spat out the last word. "Attacking the capitol during a celebration--disgusting, cowardly creatures." The procession made their way through the city streets to Doctor Armitage's tent. Ella had her small procession stop outside the tent. "I'll need to see the doctor about a few things. Abby, Mal, wait for my return. The rest of you are dismissed--help these people out however you can. Keep your comms on; I'll call for you." A series of nods and affirmatives from her men, and she stepped inside the medical tent.It was oddly quiet. The medical supplies were still there, all haphazardly arranged on shelves, in crates, even hanging from the ceiling. Her cot was a mess. Ella saw the doctor at her desk. "Doc, it's a real mess out there!" Ella shouted, narrowly sidestepping an overhanging lab coat. "Cloven really tore the town up and we've got some wounded civvies. We could really use your help, ma'am."
>>19919619Ema sits slumped over, head cradled in her arms on the cheap wood of her desk. She doesn't look at the Lieutenant as she comes in, only sighing in weak recognition."Yeah, I know. I just don't think I can do it anymore."
>>19919619The young stargazer will felt shivers from whatever Rai had conjured up during her escape. Something foul and powerful, thinking about it now, she could have left anything she wished if such power was within her grasp."I can't find the presence of anyone underground in the city's vicinity sir. Apart from our men there is nothing crawling around right now. Do you mind if I leave the searching to the others? I could use a bit of time off, with master leaving and all..."
>>19919666Ella blinked. "Ma'am, with all due respect, I think that we're all having an off day. The Starstress is gone and Fierstrom may have gone a little bit batshit. Regardless, there's people out there that need us."Silence. Ella stepped closer, laying a firm hand on the doctor's shoulder."Doc, I don't want to drag you out of that chair if I don't need to."
>>19919722Ema smiles weakly "You can force me out of the chair, but you can't force my hands to treat injuries." She sighs again, rubbing her eyes beneath her glasses "No...I'm not having an off day. I think I'm just done. I don't care about the people any more, I don't care about Fierstrom or Rai or Clovis or Voss or any of it. I'm done."
>>19919800Ella sighed, gripping the bridge of her nose.n "Doc, it's alright--I feel shitty about this, too. It was a suckerpunch of a move and they caught us with our pants down. But that is /no/ reason why we should be givin' up."Ella reached into her coat, producing a bottle of Silver Willow bourbon and setting it on the desk. "I was hoping on savin' this for a rainy day, but it looks like you might need it more than I will." She produced two shot glasses from an inner pocket of her great coat. Ella twisted the cap off the bottle, filling the two glasses. She grabbed one of the glasses and downed it, twisting her head as she felt the bourbon whiskey trickle down her throat.
>>19919879Ema picks up the glass with two fingers, swirling it a few times before choking down the strong alcohol "That's not it. I mean, what would we be even 'giving up'? We got our emperor back 7 years ago. What are we getting out of this? But no, what's really bothering me is that I'm a 30 year old virgin, and I didn't get to see my little sister grow up, I've barely even been in contact with her the last few years. I'm an awful big sis. And what did I give it up for? Devoting years of my life, and risking my neck to keep Iceheart alive. And she's never once even said 'thank you' or given me the time of day when I try to talk to her."She shakily pours another shot, downing it and slamming it down, before slumping over again, face in her hands. "I just wish she'd notice me. I never believed in love at first sight, maybe I'm just stupid but...Oh even just a small gesture would make some of this worth it. I don't care if she's mine, just that I didn't waste all this time throwing away the best years of my life!" a quiet sob racks her body, before she goes quiet again
>>19919962Time to become a wiza.. witch! trolololo
>>19919962Ella poured herself another shot as the doctor told her story. She motioned to refill the doctor's glass when the doctor began to mention Iceheart. She shook her head. "You and the Major?" She allowed herself a little chuckle. "I woulda never seen it. Y'know, I always thought that she had her eyes on--"Wait. The gears started to click in Ella's head. "Oh. /Ohhhhhhhhh./" Ella quickly downed another shot, pouring out another. "I'm, uh...I didn't know. I'm sorry." She laid on the doctor's shoulder, rubbing it back and forth. "But y'know what? Maybe ya did never see your sis grow' up, and maybe we /have/ been fighting for seven years. But y'know what? That's...that's just in our nature. We're Voss, Armi--and if there's two things Voss are known for, it's fightin' and never losin' those fights." Ella allowed herself a smile as she eyed her whiskey.
>>19920111Ema closes her eyes for a moment, the whiskey sitting poorly in her empty stomach. She leans her head against the Lieutenant's, appreciating the warm touch "I guess I'm just not a proper Voss then. I could care less about winning. I just want to be loved."
"I don't believe it. I am literally speechless of what happened.""For once I agree with you. I mean, fuck man, of all the things that could have happened, a full scale surgical strike by CLOVIS of all people? During the military parade on a national holiday?! Unthinkable! Do we even know why?""I heard from a guy who heard from a guy that the target was the Starstress. Clovis came in on business with her or something. Well she ain't here now so I assume they got what ever they came for. The only thing now is we gotta clean up this mess that someone else made.""Especially the Halbard. Did you fucking see that thing. Something sheered the engines clean off of it! How the hell did that happen?""Bombs?""No, bombs don't slice cleanly through plated steel like it was fucking craft paper. Hell, you know what I saw? Nothing, the halbard was just up in the air minding its own business, and then, whoosh, engines flew off and it plummited to the ground.""Does Clovis have anything capable of that?""I dunno, but if something can cut down one of our biggest gunships without leaving so much as a trace I hate to think what else they have"
-- MEANWHILE --*BANG BANG BANG*Two new recruits of Voss were knocking on the door of an old house. Ever since the 'suituation' they were tasked with assuring the well being of civilians in the populace and searching for any remaining Clovis terrorists that may have not flown the coop."Is anyone in here? Open up!""Hans I don't think they are in. We shoul- Wait don't jus-" *SMASH* "Gods be damned don't just break someones door down!""Well I don't see wh-" He started to say, and then he clasped his hand around his mouth to avoid vomiting from the smellThey found some of the Clovis soldiers. They were pretty dead though. Dead and partially eaten. The walls were lined with freshly spilt blood and three partially eaten corpses were strewn around the floor. One of them was missing the top half of its body."Fuck we gotta tell the commander, who do we even go to for this?"((Had to split this post, 4chan said it was too long))
>>19920150"That's what we all want, dear." Ella smiled. "But love and war don't exactly mix that well, do they?" She turned to face the doctor. "Y'know, you have the prettiest eyes..."
>>19920210Ema just stares back dumbly, wondering if the warm sensation creeping through her body was from the alcohol, or something else...A million things to say in response run through her head, but instead she slips a hand behind Ella's head, and pulls her in to kiss her hard on the lips
Do you think Love can Bloom, even on a Battlefield?>You folks are just so darn cute. My applause to everyone.
>>19920293>ELSEWHERE...Abby checked her watch. 'She's been in there for almost twenty minutes! The heck could be taking her so long?' She shivered, brushing her arms up and down. She turned to the Corpsier on the opposite side of hte tent flaps. "Mal, could you peek inside and see what Ella's up to?""Of course." The Corpsier stepped to the entrance and, quiet as a ghost, slipped his head through the tent flaps.It was not five seconds later that he slipped his head out, and began to push Abby away from the tent. "Hey!" Abby barked. "What gi--""She is preoccupied." Malachi simply stated."/Preoccupied/? What are you talking ab--""PREOCCUPIED, MISS TOMAS." The Corpsier's voice came out clearly from behind the bone-white mask. "And besides, I /do/ think we should make ourselves useful while Miss Cotton is...tied up."
>>19920421You seriously don't want to come in here...not right now at least...Actually...m-maybe I should leave too...
The second eldest of the three Konnair sisters still in Peace had spent an hour trying to enjoy the remains of the festival with Iceheart, both of the girls putting up the charade that nothing was wrong with the world, and that tonight they could set aside their worries. Time went by quickly, and presently Isabelle was in a hurry, rushing out of the city, afraid of missing the rendezvous with the rest of the Clovis forces.
The last thing Isane remembered was the bright flashes and booms of fireworks, shouts of Voss troops, more bangs, closer this time, and finally a searing pain leaving her laying in an alley, staring up at the night sky before blacking out.The girl wakes up in a panic. A quick check of her surroundings tells her she is obviously in an abandoned shack. Background noise from outside indicates that she is still in Peace. A soft blanket over her, a cot under her, and a wrap of bandages around her upper arm tells her someone tended to her, after she must have been wounded.She sits up, and something falls onto her lap, a blue flower, a Golgona specifically... the same as the one that.. strange woman had purchased. She remembers that, patting her pocket, feeling the presence of the silver Grahm coin. And then, the woman had practically disappeared... and then everything was a blur, the banging, the flashes of light, the pain, someone licking her upper arm, around the wound- no, she /had/ to have imagined that last part, she-The young flower girl drifts back to sleep.
Did... did I j-just miss s-something here...? I have no c-clue what's g-g-going on anymore...
>>19923662Lesbians, soldier. Lesbians and lots of 'hold me' moments.>You want to join me in the "fuck this, get wasted" boat?

>>19903947"Lady Fierstrom, what reason do you have to persecute these lost souls? How desperate must you be to seek a mutual oblivion at the hands of a monster such as Thanatos?"
>>19929963Understood sir, however my request still remains regarding the tank weaponry. Comprehensive knowledge of the capabilities of currently available assets is necessary if we are to create an effective survival strategy.It may also help in the event that I or another would be required to operate. the Tank/Train.

>>19930109Vilkas is it ? From the battle of Nirvana so many years ago. I will mean no disrespect for his Highess's namesake. But you have left the world before it turned for the dark. After the war with that ancient smudge on history called Kashir, it was not the deathgod armies that they employed that ended him, nor the perilous height of the Black fortress that stopped him, or even the stern look of his nobles and subjects that looked to him to be this nation's precedent. Not even the backstabbing nobles nor the plutocrats at the world government coud sway him. But know this well, northman. Your namesake was shot in the back by the very people he protected himself ! THE POOR AND THE WEAK MISGUIDED RABBLE WHO THOUGHT IT FIT THEY CAN CUT AND RUN WITH HIS MERCY.AND THE WAR-WEARY COWARDS WHO HAD THE AUDACITY TO CALL THEMSELVES VETERANS OF A WAR THAT NOT EVEN THEY THEMSELVES HAVE SET FOOT MORE THAN TWICE ON.
>>19930441And who would have thunk, That at the end of the day, the Deathgods were only mere tools wielded by the hearts of evil men. So we are here now, to ensure that all the evil souls will be cleansed in this war so that a new generation may continue forth without us. Evil souls like myself and you and selfish men who only look out for themselves even if the threat of death here is simply all but imaginary anymore. Thanatos is just another tool. A weapon. If at the end of this road you meet /that/ person, they will not even stop to give you this reason. I do not hope to sway you, Northman. I hope to kill you. For this is war, and we are enemies. And in Valhalla, there is only one solution for them.To Fight !"
>>19930505"Lady I don't know what half of what you said means so I'm just going to take it as threat, and devote an obscene amount of fire power toward your general location, Gunther please fire the overcompansatingly large cannon if you will, for old times sake."
Vilkas: "Unfortunate. It seems I will have to defer to my brother Lendur's opinion. Lendur?"Lendur: "You are a heretic and a traitor to the flag of VOSS! You will burn in this hell for all eternity and I'll be damn glad to be your warden! I'd thought that Pandemon would've been a sufficient example of moral corruption, but somehow you managed to become just like him!"Vilkas: "It seems the sands of the Sansik Desert never ceased their grip on your heart. A bitter heart leads to a bitter existence in this realm."
>>19930682Ah, it would appear that circumstance will prevent me from participating in tonight's mission. Please strike me from the roster.>Sage for polite non-content post.
