LAST TIME ON GUNDAM AGE QUESThttp://suptg.thisisnotatrueending.com/archive/24706045/-----------Your name is Jake Crocker you are a 15 year old manly man and the proud owner of a Gundam made all the way back during the Colony Nation Wars. You were forced to help track down a mutineer by the name of Grodek Ainoa and today you finally tracked down his ship.However as the two ships docked and your Captain met Grodek in the middle of the connection shaft between the two ships for negotations, the U.E appeared and you were forced to launch and work with the Diva’s pilots which included your father’s Rival Woolf, the other Gundam pilot and designer Flit Asuno and a more experienced Genoace Pilot Largan Drace.You managed to succeed in fighting off a wave of 30 U.E mobile suits with no causalities thanks to your teamwork and determination. However just as you thought the battle was over, the real one began. A massive U.E. ship appeared in the distance and a strange rose-red mobile suit carrying your childhood friend Melis attacked, targeting Flit and Carlos with inhuman aggression.You are currently in the Crusader Gundam wearing the Full Solid Frame and the Anti-Beam Cowl crudely tied around its neck, the memory cloth displaying the Kamina in an attempt to jog Melis’s memories.Everyone but you, Woolf, Carlos and Flit in a now one armed AGE-1 Gundam are the only ones on the field, everyone else is getting repaired or rearmed.Melis aims to kill Flit and Carlos. Maybe that virus you intended for the Gundam could work on the suit she’s in?How will you save Melis Jake?
Keep grappling with Farsia."Dammit, I'm not going to fight you, Mellis! What do I have to do if you won't listen to reas-... Ma G! The virus! use it on the red mobile suit!"Ma G will probably remind you that you'll have to be without her aid for some minutes."I can handle it!"
>>24729743Lets try the virus, since Melis is concentrated on Flit and Carlos. Tell them to stay alive as long as possible while it works its magic.
>>24729827lets hold off on the virus. the virus might trigger the self destruct
>>24729890We could ask Ma G if she can ensure that the virus does not trigger the self destruct sequence.
>>24729743"MELLIS! listen to me try to resist the pain for a moment! Flit! Carlos! your presence is apparently causing her pain fly as far away from her as possible hopefully it'll be enough to dull the pain!" if Flit try to argue we were here to capture them "Mellis is one of my only friends! making sure she is alright is more important than obeying a group of numbchucks who send a team on a risky assignment under equipped!."
>>24729743Use the power of love,"Get out of the suit Melis, You promised to go on a date with me! "

>>24729917Hold on. Do we even know if it can even affect her suit? We designed the virus expressly for the purpose of disabling Flit's Gundam, basing it on flaws in Ma G's security system, and we weren't even sure it could do that. In addition, it's possible that UE suits don't have a way of receiving the virus.In addition, we're going up against a new mobile suit with unknown capabilities, and sending the virus will prevent us from using Ma G. At the very least, we should ask Flit if we can borrow his AIAND NEVER RETURN IT, thus rendering our mission successful!.
>>24730496We built the virus to counter flaws in Colonial Wartime mobile suits, which our Gundam is.The U.E.s are based off roughly the same technology, so we have an okay shot at affecting the Farsia.
>>24730531yeah but jake doesn't know that
>>24730531...Did the Vagan even make any improvements to pre-AG technology in the century following the war?
>>24730552He knows the Gundam is from the Colonial wars, and that MADNUG is an AI from back then, which makes her far and away more advanced than anything from these times. Jake can make an educated guess that if the virus can disable a Gundam, it can disable anything the UEs cook up.
>>24730496Our mission was to capture Grodrek, not Flit. Besides, his AI doesn't have a core transfer function to our knowledge.
>>24729821You hold onto the Farsia as tight as your Gundam will allow, even as it thrashes in your grip. >"Dammit, I'm not going to fight you, Mellis! What do I have to do if you won't listen to reas-... Ma G! The virus! use it on the red mobile suit!""If I upload the virus I will not be able to assist you in piloting the Gundam">"I can handle it!""Beginning virus upload. Estimated upload time, 10 minutes"You instantly feel the Gundam's handling drop. It's the first time you've properly piloted the Gundam without Ma G helping out and your already having a difficult time just keeping a grip of the Farsia. All you can do is pray that if the virus could work on a Gundam it could work on a U.Q. suit. If it doesn't...As you struggle to keep Melis in your grasp you hear Dorthy speak over the comm. "That U.E. ship is approaching! It's deploying U.E. Mobile suits in droves!""Don't worry, we have reinforcements" Grodrek interrupts over the comms as cyclops like mobile suits begin to fly out of the colony in formation."Flit, return to the Diva to get re-equipped, support the Zalam and Euba forces to push back the U.E." he commands."But Captain, that boy in the Gundam he's..." Flit hesitates, looking back as you struggle with the Farsia, Melis's feral screams blaring out over the comm channel."If the U.E. reaches him he'll be done for. Push back the U.E and stop them from getting that close and he may have a chance to save his friend. " Grodrek explains."Yes sir! Vargas, get the new Wear ready for Gundam!" Flit returns to the Diva. Carlos following him."Jake? What the hell is going on out there? I'm coming out to help!" Your father calls over the comms."No Dad. Everyone should be going to push back the U.E. I can handle Melis!""But..." Your father hesitates, hearing your grunts and panting as the Farsia's thrashing gets worse."He can handle himself! Just who the hell do you think he is?" Captain Frizzle exclaims. (Cont)
>>24730751The Diva and Armstrong pull out of the colony's space dock. Everyone goes ahead to combat the vast swarm of approaching U.E, supported by what appears to be the warring colony factions now working together to fight.The Farsia rips out of your grip punches the Gundam square in the torso. Your knocked around the cockpit as Melis screams in pain."I need it to stop! I need it to stop! Why won't you let me end this!?" The Farsia's chest glows and lets loose with a large scattering beam attack.(Roll 1d100 vs Pilot skill to dodge. Rolls at 30 or lower will succeed. 1 is a critical success and 100 is a critical failure)
Rolled 97>>24730825here comes the pain
>>24730836Do we still have both layers of armor equipped?
>>24730875Damn, dude. You just nearly fucked us even more royally than we already were.
>>24730836>>24730867>>24730875well that could have gone a whole lot better
>>24730876We engaged wingmode to dash over and get Flit and Carlos out of Mellis' barrage.We're unfortunately not shielded at the front right now.
This must be the first time we've failed a roll in this quest.
>>24730928at least we are not kira yamato
Rolled 68>>24730825Oh boy. Might be time to engage that cowl.
Hold up, we're still wearing the anti-beam cowl that we got back from Arnold!We're still in this even though we got hit!
Rolled 99>>24730825useless tripfag here to save the day
>>24731011...wow you managed to do worse than me
Rolled 89>>24731011well fuck... that was close
>>24731011I hate you so much right now.
>>24731024>>24731011>>24730953>>24730913>>24730836>>24730867You attempt to dodge the massive scattering beam blast but due to the Gundam’s extra weight, the range of the attack and the fact you’re struggling to properly control the Gundam without Ma-G’s help, you take the full brunt of the blast. The Anti-Beam Cowl is vaporized in an instant and the already beaten and battle worn Full Solid Cowl is warped and melted by the intense blast.The Anti-Beam Cowl protects the head of the Gundam from any severe damage. At first it doesn’t seem so bad, until you try to go into full wing mode for some extra mobility and find the front and back plates have melted together! You can’t open or move the plates to us your arms!“Melis! Stop this!” “Shutup shutup SHUT UP!”Her flower like bits swarm around her and come after you like a swarm of bees as she pulls off the Farsia’s Tail blade and charges you.Your unable to use your Gundam’s arms, you have decreased mobility and speed due the loose of the thrusters on the Full Solid Cowl and the explosive bolts to detach it aren’t working.What will you do Jake? There is 9 minutes left on the clock till Ma G is finished.
>>24731042Evade like hell!
>>24731042"Mellis if you keep up you'll kill me! Do you want to kill me?! now calm the fuck down and stop this! OR I WILL COME HERE AND SLAP SOME SENSE INTO YOU! and I MEAN it!"
Rolled 88>>24731042Attempt to evade and Use the power of love to make her snap out of it.
>>24731042Evade! Lead her towards the ships, it would be a great shame if the virus worked, but she got captured by the fucking UE again!
>>24731042At least we're still wearing the full solid... though she managed to melt parts of it, so I don't want to take any more hits.put the pedal to the metal and try to evade, while talking to her"Mellis! It's me! It's your friend, Jake, remember?? I know you're in a lot of pain, but you have got to focus! You're stronger than this!"
>>24731150Fuck. Dodge! Watch the flowers and find a pattern in their fire!
The theme of this fight has become thishttps://www.youtube.com/watch?v=5ByZzHAul14
>>24731150"Come on Melis, stop this. You're a good person, sure you may look sort of like a dude, have a nasty temper, and your chest is virtually non-existent. But you are my friend! You promised we would go on a date after I got back!"
>>24731042>Ram Farsia.We should be able to use the Farsia's tail blade to free our arms by using the cowl to block."Mellis if you don't calm down right now I swear I will drop another pillar on you!"
>>24731057>>24731110You begin to fly backwards towards the ships, trying your best to dodge Mellis’s incoming attacks despite having a severe piloting and mobility handicap. You manage to avoid Mellis’s melee attacks, but those remote weapons hit you every time. Thankfully the Full Solid Cowl can still take the precision hits despite being warped and melted to shit.> "Mellis! It's me! It's your friend, Jake, remember?? I know you're in a lot of pain, but you have got to focus! You're stronger than this!"“J-Jake? I’m sorry. I don’t want to kill you b-but I need this pain to stop! I can’t think, I can’t breathe, I can’t even speak with THEM still alive without feeling pain. I’m sorry. I’m sorry…” >"Come on Melis, stop this. You're a good person, sure you may look sort of like a dude, have a nasty temper, and your chest is virtually non-existent. But you are my friend! You promised we would go on a date after I got back!"“Jake I…” Melis seems to hesitate for a moment, as if she’s going to stop. Suddenly a ‘pulse’ rushes through her body, the image of a Gundam with a glowing blade on the other side of the battlefield flashes into her mind.“I HAVE TO KILL THEM!”The Farsia bursts forward, tailsword in hand as it a lunges it towards the head of your Gundam…(Roll 1d100 vs Pilot skill to dodge. Rolls at 30 or lower will succeed. 1 is a critical success and 100 is a critical failure)
Rolled 99>>24731449Really putting on the pressure here.
Rolled 74>>24731449as soon as we dodged PREPARE THE BRIGHT SLAP
Rolled 99>>24731449Awwww shit.I think we need to find a way to push Melis as far from the main combat as possible. Her implants only act up when X-rounders are near.
Rolled 87>>24731478>>24731480Well that could have gone better.
>>24731478>>24731480>>24731485>>24731488Welp, game over. It was nice knowing you guys.
Rolled 82now the curse strikes!
>>24731480>>24731488>>24731011These digital dice are loaded!
Rolled 61>>24731449Rage against the rnd.
Rolled 89>>24731449oh no you don't melis
Rolled 47>>24731478>>24731480>>24731485>>24731488holy fuck we can't roll for shit today
>>24731510ok IF we survive this we need to learn how to pilot with out AI!
Rolled 2399, 88, 100, why not in stay/again quest...
Rolled 16wht the fuck is with all these shit rolls?
>>24731536>>24731537PAY NO ATTENTION TO ANY OTHER ROLLS EXCEPT FOR THESE!!!!!TUNNEL VISION ON THESE ROLLS HERE!
Rolled 97>>24731536>>24731537We are saved!
>>24731536>>24731537Well, whoop de fuckng doo, you're late to the party.
>>24731537>>24731536ALL HAIL THE DICE GODS!
>>24731501Relax. It's just the head.
>>24731599But we'll be disqualified from the Gundam Fight!
>>24731478>>24731480>>24731485>>24731488> 99, 99, 97, 87, 82>16, 23You manage to avoid getting stabbed in the face, but the Farsia's tailblade punches through the Full Solid Cowl like a hot knife through butter. Mellis stabs the tailblade into the cowl several times before pulling it out and slashing viciously at the armor. By the time you manage to pull away from her the Full Solid Armor has been cut to ribbons, and Mellis managed to fuck up your Gundam's right arm.Front Part of Full Solid Armor is gone, back still intact. Right arm heavily damaged. 5 minutes till Ma G is done uploading the virus. You are now close by the Armstrong, what will you do Jake?
>>24731659Try to push Melis as far from the main combat as possible. Hopefully we can get Flit and Carlos out of range of her implants.
>>24731659Query: status of the others vs. the UE?
>>24731659bright slap her back to clear thoughts
>>24731659"I LOVE YOU MELIS! I want to be with you!"http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6fUJ6LehQ3I
>>24731659"Armstrong if you've got any of those gunk rounds loaded now would BE A GREAT TIME!"
Tell her to take off the helmet, don't the U.E. ones enhance powers? Should let her think more clearly.
>>24731830Wait, we didn't get the pilot of the captured on intact. Nevermind, we don't have that info.
>>24731659Are we still near her? Headbutt her and then leg it."Goddamn it Mellis, let me see you. GRIT. THOSE. TEETH. Fight it, damn it!"
Sometimes opening the cockpit works. That would require MC tier plot armor, though.
>>24731659"You're going to destroy someone that isn't even willing to fight back?? THAT ISN'T THE MELLIS I KNOW!!!"
>>24731985Stahp.We don't want her attention abandoning us lest she goes after Flit and Carlos, who is right now killing the UE.If the virus goes off there, she will become a casualty or recaptured.
>>24731698You don't know, you can't take the time to check the comms, your too busy with Mellis. Look away for an instant and her bits will be all over you again.>>24731906Your armor is mostly gone, your right arm is shot and you still have five minutes left to go. All the while Mellis has gotten closer to the battlefield. Your close enough to the Armstrong that you can quickly recover her, but as far away from the battle as you can get without making it a hassle to recover her, you refuse to allow the U.E. to get their hands on her again. In an attempt to disable her suit you bolt forward, smashing your Gundams right arm into the Farsia's pedestal which seems to be it's means of propulsion. The arm snaps off, wires and components flying in every direction as the arm dangles from it's socket by a few sturdy cables. The Pedestal seems fine outside of a large dent. Mellis swings her tailsword down, but you fly up and headbutt her suit. You can hear her yell as she's thrown around in the cockpit. >"Goddamn it Mellis, let me see you. GRIT. THOSE. TEETH. Fight it, damn it!""AGHHHHHHHHHHH!" She yells again and rushes you, but seems to be fighting herself as the swings she makes are half-hearted. You fly backwards, trying to outrun her bits as they quickly surround you.>>24731710With four minutes on the clock and Mellis quickly overpowering you, you do the thing you've been trying to avoid.>"I LOVE YOU MELIS! I want to be with you!"Mellis's bits stop cold and the Farsia stops, as if mimicking Mellis's own shock."L-love?" She asks, her voice quivering.You open your cockpit and step out onto the door, you heart pounding in your chest for fear of death and your own hidden fear. The truth will set you free, that's what they say...(Continued)
>>24732055Good point.We're in a really fucking tight spot though. We have 5 minutes left, but what can we do?Since the heavy cowl is off, we can move (one of) our arms again. Thus, we could keep her busy at least. We could add on to it"If we're going to fight, disengage those laser pods of yours! They're totally OP! We fight here and now. No bullshit. I win, we go steady for a month, you win, I won't ever ask you out on a date again!""NO GUNS! NO SWORDS! FISTS ONLY! FINAL DESTINATION!"
>>24732145Or... the power of love is good too.ignore this >>24732157
>>24732145> Love...seriously?"Yes, damn it! You're my best friend! When I was sick, you came over every day to hang out!""When you broke your leg that time at training, I carried you to the hospital and visited you every day!""Damn it, don't you remember anything?""Who got me into video games? You! Who got you into playing pretend? Me!""The Black Devil and the Scarlet Witch are a team, from now till the end!""And now, I need you to believe in me! Believe in me who believes in you!""FIGHT IT!"
>>24732243Excellent. No need for romance.
>>24732243pretend? you mean LARP right?
>>24732266It is romance. Just the kind of romance that better fits their personalities.
>>24732243>mfw you're still on an open channel and everybody hears it.
>>24732282Yes, that. But I think we agreed earlier that kids LARPing is actually more like playing pretend?I probably should've put LARP there. But it gets the point across.
>>24732299>mfw slow clap by the crew as you carry her to the Armstrong>>24732282They were years younger than 15 when they did it. It really doesn't count as LARPing.
>>24732195>>24732243well I have to say I'm surprised to see a possible yandere route but even more surprised to see tg take it.I am very much pleased>>24732322oh good because I was thinking about another pretend, you know the *one*, I blame 4chan for corrupting me.
>>24732145As you step out onto the door of your cockpit you see the Farsia's chest begins to glow, it's charging it's scattering beam cannon again. If it fires you won't survive at this range. You stare at the face of the suit, eyes narrowing/>"Yes, damn it! You're my best friend! When I was sick, you came over every day to hang out! When you broke your leg that time at training, I carried you to the hospital and visited you every day! Damn it, don't you remember anything?" Who got me into video games? You! Who got you into playing pretend? Me! The Black Devil and the Scarlet Witch are a team, from now till the end of our lives! And now, I need you to believe in me! Believe in me who believes in you! FIGHT IT...and come back home with me"The cannon continues to charge and you fear you didn't reach her. However slowly the glow begins to dim until disappearing all together. One by one the bits retreat into the back of the Farsia."Jake I..." Mellis is cut off as the virus upload timer hits Zero. The Farsia's unusual sensor darkens and the suit goes dead. Hoping back into the cockpit Ma G greets you. Closing the cockpit you take the Farsia in your Gundam's still working arm and fly it back to the hanger. There a security team and the medical staff of the Armstrong are waiting for you. Coming out of your cockpit, your the one who goes over to the U.E suit and fishes out Mellis, who is shaking and crying in your arms. You hand her over to the medics and follow them to the infirmary. Everyone in the hanger is giving you a slowly clap as you exit, too bad that in the vacuum of space you can't hear it. "Suit disabled. Pilot still alive. Congratulations"
>>24732380The first time she met Jake she ended up kicking him in the balls for flirting with her in a stupid manner.She's a bro-ette. Our best bro-ette. Unlike the friendzone, there is a possibility of a real relationship.
>>24732478YES, YES....fuck, we're gonna have to send Carlos over to the Diva temporarily to make sure Mellis doesn't go batshit.On the bright side, we can see a few Diva members go insane(r).
>>24732468Why the fuck is the top gun theme playing in my head!?
>>24732468FUCK YES POWER OF LOVE!!!Say over communications "How is the fight with that UE battleship going? Is everyone alright?"
>>24732468THIS IS THE GREATEST MOMENT OF THIS QUEST EVER.Everything else, is a postscript. Nothing will ever top this moment again, barring possible quest crossovers (Muv-Luv?)
>>24732528So we're a SUPAA PAIROTTO instead of an X-rounder?
>>24732532good questionon a side note I'm almost done with the drawing, I just need to finish the coloring
>>24732468"Everyone, status report.""Also, I'll punch anyone in the dick who asks me who the Black Devil is and did I really took pretend so seriously.">>24732532You too?
>>24732569Jake is confirmed for not being an X-Rounder, since Mellis didn't try to claw our eyes out when we carried her out of the suit.>>24732562OP has surprised us before. Don't think he's out of epic.
A note on the special abilities of Gundam>Fucking Autistic Spacenoids...
>>24732528huh I don't think putting Carlos on the same ship as the man who (may) have killed his father is such a great idea
>>24732666Don't bring Mellis or Carlos to the Diva. Although we can possibly have Ma-G and the AGE system scan the Farsia and come up now with crazy shit.
>>24732666Neither is keeping Mellis in strangling reach of Carlos.
>>24732666At least he'll be able to hear Grodrek's side of the story.Bastard has a tongue made of sterling silver.
>>24732727Carlos is probably used to being strangled from what we heard from the vets at the restaurant.
>>24732572(I look forward to seeing it. I appreciate anyone who draws anything for this.)>>24732532(Is this the one? http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=MVNQGUkRX_U) >>24732600You stay with Mellis until she passes out from the heavy doses of painkillers the docs give her to elevate her constant pain.> "Everyone, status report, Also, I'll punch anyone in the dick who asks me who the Black Devil is and did I really took pretend so seriously.""The U.E. are retreating! The crazy son of a bitch Don Boyage flew right into their battleship. Didn't leave a scratch but I think Flit just lost his fucking mind, he started cutting U.E. to ribbons in droves!" Your dad calls over the comm."Everyone's fine, Arnold shit his pants though!" Carlos announces."Shut the fuck up Carlos! I only pissed myself!" Arnold yells back.The battle is over. You have repelled the U.E. One by one the pilots begin returning to their ships. What do you wish to do now?
>>24732762Give Gundam a hug. Promise her that we'll fix her up, we'll make her good as new and that we're sorry we weren't strong enough to protect her.
>>24732762Need to get those negotiations with Grodrek back on track. We're still technically enemies.
>>24732762Get your cape. Go to our Gundam and begin repairs. Apologize to it for being such a bad pilot.Ma G should probably note something along the lines of "So, that's the legendary human spirit. Impressive."
>>24732762see to the eventual wounded, restart the talk with Grodrek and most importantly high five/fistbump all of the pilots because FUCK YES we won!
this battle taught us that need to train
>>24732762First, while still in the infirmary with Mellis, even though she's unconscious, tell her"I don't know if you can hear me, but... I meant everything I said. I only hope you'll accept me when you wake up; when we make you better. I swear I'll get the bastards who did this to you. I'll make them all pay. I promise.">>24732778>>24732809>>24732819Then do these.
>>24732860This, supported.I like how we talked down our forcebly turned psycho not-girlfriend while getting absolutely horrendous rolls. (Then again, across /tg/ today, amazing rolls are stupidly common. http://suptg.thisisnotatrueending.com/archive/24711198/ is an example. [Although maybe the dice gods WANTED us to talk her down while risking our very life.. heh.])
>>24732936Sometimes the dice gods make one think all is lost when really they make you falter for dramatic effect so that your victory can be even more satisfying.
Let's not throw romance in this just yet.For now, we're her best friend looking out for her and swearing revenge against that little dipshit.
>>24732986The dicegods are dicks, except for the female one but she plays favorites.
>>24733002Exactly relationships around this age never last best wait until like at LEAST mid twenties to thirties if we don't want serious heartbreak/divorce.
>>24733021Don't forget house Karban and that forgotten quest called Space Evil.
>>24733002We already declared our love in an insanely heroic and dramatic fashion. I don't care how much of a tomboy bro-ette a girl is, she would think that's awesome.Besides, these two really are an interesting duo. They would just compete with each other on everything. There's no way Mellis and Jake would get bored of each other.
>>24732860>"I don't know if you can hear me, but... I meant everything I said. I only hope you'll accept me when you wake up; when we make you better. I swear I'll get the bastards who did this to you. I'll make them all pay. I promise."Mellis is out cold, but it's the fact you said it that counts.>>24732778You grab your cape and put it on you while your still in your pilot suit. You go out and hug Gundam, promising to fix her up when you get the chance.One by one the Genoaces land and you fist pump the shit out of everyone, Carlos, Ralphie, Time, Arnold and Dad, who gives you a hug only a father can give.As you do this, Captain Frizzle comes into the hanger with Dorthy, both of them wearing pilot suits."I want all of you to come with me to the Diva. I need to finish my discussion with Grodek, but I want you to be there to hear him out." You nod and go along, crossing the reconnected bridge to the Diva.
>>24733017I don't know if you've noticed, but these two aren't exactly typical.Besides. This is an anime. You always live happily ever after with your childhood friend in an anime.
>>24733075I'm sure he agreed to turn himself in to the Federation!lel
>>24733051Didn't we say that we love her as our best friend? Instead of LOVE love?
>>24733133>>"I LOVE YOU, MELLIS! I want to be with you!"We were pretty clear, and she isn't dense as she knows we're attracted to her in that way from the way we alwyays ask her out on dates. So yeah. LOVE love.
>>24733173...we're screwed, aren't we?Oh well. We're still a teen, we don't know what we're saying anyway.
I probably could have done a better coloring but heh, I'm lazy.I don't really like the hair cut so if anyone as a better one feel free
>>24733240We have a stubble, not a full dwarf beard.
>>24733091Eh I would just prefer NOT to dive head first into romance and possible waifu just yet. As for it being an anime yes it is unfortunately we don't have Plot Armor out the ass to make sure that happens. >>24733236Don't worry she went crazy and the pain chances are she wont actually be certain of it. So we may be safe plus yeah were still a we both are.
>>24733240We're working on the beard. If it were that glorious, we would be euphoric, but it sadly isn't. A light stubble is more accurate. Think sparse hairs around the chin and jawline.
>>24733256oh, right crap I'll correct that when I'll get to polishing the coloring
>>24733236>>24733290You guys are such pessimists. This isn't real life, for gods sake. She's going to be out of commission for awhile anyway since she needs surgery and therapy and shit to get rid of all the crap they put her through.
>>24733330We are worried about the waifu crowd that is why.
>>24733290Agreed. Let's at least delay the inevitable waifu and romance, we have a galaxy to save first.Besides, she's probably gonna need surgery and therapy. And her parents are most likely freaking out.We should give them a call, tell them that we found her when we have the time.
>>24733343Her personality doesn't exactly lend itself to typical anime love interests. I think we're safe.
>>24733075I wonder if there's any usable UE parts for salvage (hint: capturing Desil?) out there.
>>24733461ya no I have not seen age but I do not want that fuck on the ship
>>24733461It's unlikely. We do have the one we caught a week ago AND we now have the Farsia.We Vagan tech now.
>>24733476Oh come one we can let melis and flit tear him a new one.
>>24733314(I agree on the beard, that's probably how Jake sees himself in his head, but sadly he just doesn't have that level of manliness yet.)You go over to the Diva with the rest of the pilots and Captain Frizzle. The crew of the Diva seems quite welcoming despite seeing how odd you look. You’re invited into a comfortable meeting room where your given something warm to drink.Grodrek, the man who needs to go to prison for you not to, stands before you and speaks.“I understand the situation you’ve been put in and you have my deepest apologies. However I cannot turn myself in. I have come too far to turn back now. You see I did not take control of this ship out of foppery and whim. At the time the commanding crew planned on leaving everyone on Nora to die at the hands of the U.E. I had to take drastic action, so I killed the men in command of the Nora and made myself the captain.”Carlos stands up, eyeing Grodek. “So you did kill my father!”“Yes, but only because he planned on leaving everyone on Nora to die.”“My father would never do something like that!” Carlos yells in denial. “He said it himself, right to my face.” Grodek explains calmly. “I assume you want your revenge yes? And I assume the rest of you don’t wish to go to prison? Then you can have your freedom and revenge, but not now. I want you to help me.”“Help you with what exactly? Why did you take command of this ship if it wasn’t solely for saving that colony?”“I plan on using this ship to gather enough forces, supplies and intelligence to destroy the U.E’s main base within the Earth Sphere. The abandoned space fortress known as Ambat.”Everyone’s eyes go wide.Your response Jake?
>>24733497Is it possible for us to somehow run into Desil drifting in space?
>>24733502"You're well know for your silver tongue, captain.""Do you have proof? How do we know this isn't an elaborate setup?"
>>24733502"Main base? Wait, what do you know about the U.E.? How do we know we can trust you?"
>>24733529he was probably recovered by the UE forces during their second assault...what do we know of the Abandoned space Fortress Ambat?f
>>24733529Not a chance. They probably already picked him up before retreating.
>>24733502"Well, if what you're saying is true and I would like proof of that, I do want to help you. The U.E. is more important than politicking bullshit.And honestly I don't feel like fighting you right now, we alongside each other and fighting you would leave a bad taste in my mouth.Grodek you need all the help you can get for this I would assume, tell me everything you know about the U.E. and Ambat. We'll share what we know when we get more information on them as we have two rather promising leads on the U.E. that we're looking into."
>>24733502Who told you it was Ambat?
>>24733502"What the hell is Ambat?"
>>24733540> "Well, if what you're saying is true and I would like proof of that, I do want to help you. The U.E. is more important than politicking bullshit.And honestly I don't feel like fighting you right now, we alongside each other and fighting you would leave a bad taste in my mouth. Grodek you need all the help you can get for this I would assume, tell me everything you know about the U.E. and Ambat. We'll share what we know when we get more information on them as we have two rather promising leads on the U.E. that we're looking into.""Flit along with myself ran the data of every U.E. attack up to this point. Using the delays in attacks and the time set between them, the data points to them being housed at Ambat. Ambat was a Federation base that was abandoned after the Colony Nations War. No who has gone near it in the past few years has returned alive. There is a lot of evidence pointing to their base being there and if we attacked it, we would not only cripple the U.E.s advance into the Earth Sphere but possibly discover who they really are. As for the U.E. themselves I know very little outside of there is a little boy working for them, Desil. He seems obsessed with killing Flit for some reason. It's possible to assume the U.E. are vaguely humanoid in body-type.""I agree. I managed to capture a U.E. suit a while back and another during this battle. The cockpit is absolutely set up for a humanoid type body. Both should be safe to analyze now, maybe that will help us in our endeavors." You explain."So are you willing to help me?" Grodek asks."Yes. The U.E. need to be stopped and you seem like a man who sticks by his word. Once this is over we'll take you into custody, however until then we'll do what we need to to make sure Ambat burns" Captain Frizzle states."Thank you. With your help this will be much easier." Anything you'd like to ask Grodek?
>>24733843What happened to Flit out there? They said he lost his mind.
>>24733843"What were you doing in Fardain and what were those other suits that came out to help us?"
>>24733843"I for one apparently have a squadren of pirates who owe me a favor. Is there anyone else we can call on for the assault on Ambat?"
>>24733843"Can you spare any supplies to help me repair my Gundam? Because it got pretty banged up and you have the most advanced rapid prototyper in the Earth Sphere, sooooo..."
Let's get some time with Flit to fix our Gundam and upgrade his as well.You know, let's get the AGE Builder to make a NTD system. Find the transmitters on the Farsia's bits and build a jammer for it. Odds are, we'll fuck over Decil's suit hijacking as well.
>>24733977This is going to be a looooooong week.
>>24733240That is some autistic deviant art tier work there.
>>24733977NTD is a little hard to use when you've got no newtypes.I say we get shoulder missile racks, because the stark jegan was boss tier.
>>24734001lets see your work faggot
>>24734073STARK JEGAN STRONK!
>>24733891>>24733930"My plan is simple. To gather enough forces and supplies to launch an assault on Ambat and stop the U.E. before they spread. Those mobile suits were from the colony, they are the Euba and Zalam factions there. Flit managed to talk them into cooperating with one another and joining. Since you will be joining us we will offer any supplies we can, however when it comes to the Gundam and the AGE Builder, Flit is in charge. You'll have to get his permission if you want to use it." Grodrek responds."Once we pull the logs off those U.E. mobile suits we'll put together a more detailed outline of the plan. We'll be sticking around Fairdain for a while, so you guys should jest up and get some R&R." Captain Frizzle explains. You mention that some pirates owe you a favor and Grodek says he'll keep that in mind. Once your dismissed the other pilots, save for your Dad return to the ship. "I'm going to talk to Woolf for a bit" Dad gives you a wave goodbye and floats down the hall.There is a lot to do. What do you want to do first?
>>24734126To the hospital room first, check if Mellis is up to squeeze out info about the little fuck Decil.
>>24734126Talk with Flit, and perhaps work with him getting and making use of data from the UE suits
>>24734001I will be the first one to say I'm not the best but what? autistic deviant? something tells me I'm missing something here
>>24734160"melis do you know anything about the bastard who did this to you? I'm gonna make him pay."
>>24734160Let's talk to Flit.If anyone, he should be able to tell us how to fix up the Crusader Gundam. Maybe he could even tell us something about it we don't even know.
>>24734264meant to rely to >>24734126
>>24734126"Maybe we should try using the AGE builder for things other than the Gundam, like upgrading Genoaces with new gear.... or use it to build more Gundams, or build a Gundam on top of a Genoace. "
>>24734282He just said we should talk to Flit about that stuff.
Both cowls are completely destroyed now, so we need a new gimmick.
>>24734126Meet up with Flit. See if we can hook up Ma G to the AGE Builder and build something really nice.
>>24734264>>24734282>>24734299You decide to find and talk with Flit to see about utilizing all the data you’ve collected, checking out the U.E. suits and maybe even getting to look over his Gundam and use the AGE Builder. After a few minutes of searching you find him in the hanger with the other mobile suits, running some tests on the Gundam and looking a little upset.“Hey, it’s me again!” He turns around and looks at you. He doesn’t smile or frown, he’s not sure what to make of you yet.“Your Jake right? The other Gundam pilot? Thank you for helping us fight the U.E, I’m sorry about your friend” Flit reaches out a hand which you happily shake.“No problem. Mellis is going to be OK, now that she’s safe on the Armstrong. Listen Flit I came here to talk about Gundam…”Flit looks back at his Gundam in confusion.“What about it?”“No, no. My Gundam. God damn it, there’s two of them now aren’t there? Well what’s the designation for your suit?”“AGE-1”“Well mine will be AGE-X, or the Crusader Gundam. Either way, I wanted to see if you could look it over and help me repair it.” “I’d like to take a look at it if I could. It’s supposed to have been made by my family a long time ago, maybe there’s something I can learn or unlock about its design. It’ll take a while though, I’ll probably have to disassemble the suit completely.”“That’s no problem, as long as you put it back together of course. Also, you think maybe I could use the AGE Builder? From what I read of your essay on it, I think I can be applied to a lot more than just your Gundam.”Flit puts a hand to his chin. “Well…I don’t know…”“OK then, I’ll sweeten the deal. I’ll let you take apart my Gundam and I’ll give you the data I’ve collected over my time as its pilot. In return I get the data on your Gundam and I get to play around with the AGE Device. Ma-G can transfer the data now if you want.”(Continued)
>>24734398“An A.I? Did that come from the Gundam? How did yo-Sure!” Flit, upon hearing Ma G speak became pretty excited. You help with the transfer of the two U.E. Suits and the bashed up Crusader Gundam. As Flit and the Diva’s engineers work on extracting the data and analyzing the suits, you get to play around with the AGE-1 and the AGE Builder.What would you like to check out first?
>>24734407First check its build history. It might have already manufactured stuff we can use like the DODS rifle.
>>24734407Nice! Let Ma G analyze the AGE-1's combat data while you give the suit a look over. Try the cockpit, as we might be able to make out suit's handing more efficient.
>>24734407The AGE-1's systems and the differences between Crusader and the AGE-X.
>>24734480DOH! I meant AGE-1
>>24734407Can the AGE builder build an AGE builder?
>>24734517We need to go deeper...
I wonder if our AI has any lost tech in its programing
>>24734382We can always build more of them. We should build new ones after the Guys get their cloaks. Perhaps a modified solid cloak with better thrusters?>>24734425This, while Ma G looks over the AGE-1's combat data.Actually can we get that on a tablet or something, so we can look it over after we check on Melis?
>>24734561That's pretty much guaranteed since she's a piece of pre-AG tech.
Maybe we could use the XM3 OS we developed as a bargaining chip for when we want something else from Flit... unless he already has something like that.
>>24734600She doesn't take up enough space to be the Exa-db.
>>24734568>>24734539>>24734517>>24734425The final part of the Battle of Fairdain. Farsia Rose vs Crusader Gundam Mellis vs Jake. The Power of Love and Friendship. Or is it just friendship? No one can really decide.You hop inside the cockpit of the AGE-1 and check out the cockpit. It’s a more modern cockpit, but it’s somewhat similar to the AGE-X’s cockpit. You see a little groove that’s exactly like the one in your Gundam. Taking out your cellphone you slip it into the groove and the mobile suit activates.“Holy crap! Ma G you can work with this Gundam?”“Numerous drivers are not responding and a few errors have occurred, but yet.” Ma G replies. “Think you could do a comparison between the AGE-X and the AGE-1? I’m gonna check out the AGE Builder”“Affirmative. Commencing analysis.” You leave the cockpit and begin looking through the AGE System’s Build files. You see schematics for------------------Beam Daggers-Gundam Shield-Spinning Beam Lance (the Pizza cutter Flit used)- "Drill-Orbital Discharge System" (DODS) Rifle-Titus Wear-Spallow Wear----------------However those are only the self-generated schematics. In theory you could input any data and reverse engineer it. Another AGE-1, a Genoace, fuck even another AGE Builder. Going back to Ma G you find she is finished.AGE-X:-Better Armor-Better Melee Capabilities-More Durable FrameAGE-1: -More Maneuverable-Higher Overall Speed-More AdaptableOverall each has their strengths and their weaknesses. But the AGE-1’s ability to be easily modified and adapted is a pretty powerful one compared to the AGE-X.You make a note to check on Mellis soon, but you want to try out some stuff. What do you want to try building with the AGE Builder? You have the Data from the AGE-1, all the combat data you’ve collected up to this point and the Data from your own Gundam.What will you do Jake?
>>24734673(Ignored the top part)
>>24734681>The final part of the Battle of Fairdain. Farsia Rose vs Crusader Gundam Mellis vs Jake. The Power of Love and Friendship. Or is it just friendship? No one can really decide.
>>24734673Tell it to make pancakes, I'm not sure if I'm kidding or not.Check out its production capabilities first, how much stuff can we make it make before it needs more power? What does it use as the base material for constructing stuff? How easy is it to obtain said base material?
>>24734673Upgraded Cowls and a DODS Rifle. (Maybe work on a new Cowl system, with some places for Spallow daggers.
>>24734673I say we make our own AGE Builder to put on the Armstrong.
>>24734673>What do you want to try building with the AGE Builder?Make something like the Back Weapon System for the AGE-X like the Re-GZ has. Kickstart variable mobile suit technology. Shouldn't be too much of a stretch from the solid cowl.
>>24734673Compare the schematics of the two and see if we can somehow take some of the qualities from and combine them to create a new gundum design. Ask Ma G to combine them into one design and run simulations to see how it performs.
>>24734673Let's try something simple. The DODS rifle seems like a good start, and it would be a fine backup for if you run out on the crossbow.If you can find a way to design a new cowl, that would be good as well.
>>24734759You have a lot of ideas on what you want to do. More Cowls, New Cowls, maybe some of those awesome Rifles and some weapons off that 'Spallow'. Fuck you have so many ideas you don't know where to stop! So you decide to make it so you can test out these ideas yourself.You decide to have the AGE Builder builder another AGE Builder, or considering the size the parts to make another AGE Builder. (Roll a 1d100 vs Computer Skill. 85 or lower will succeed. 1 is a critical success and 100 is a critical failure)
Rolled 75>>24734821Let's roll
>>24734673Engineering begins with ambition!Can we integrate a DODS into the Gundam's shield?How long would it take to reverse engineer the AGE builder?How high can you ramp up the DODS?
Rolled 38>>24734821I wonder what a critical would net us here
>>24734859Infinite AGE builders
Rolled 17>>24734859An Age Builder more advanced than the Age Builder. Singularity go.
Rolled 55>>24734877I can't if this would be awesome or just plain stupid
Rolled 49>>24734821If we get a nat 1, does that mean we made the AGE Builder make a Better AGE Builder?
>>24734898>>24734885>>24734878>>24734859>>24734832>>24734826After putting in all the data and modifying some of the settings the AGE Builder get to work. It takes half an hour, but slowly the AGE Builder begins pumping out parts. You begin to piece the thing together bit by bit, in Zero-G it's pretty easy. Soon you have another AGE-Builder sitting beside the other one. After copying it's programming you port it to the other AGE builder and soon it's fully operation.What do you want to try now? Another AGE-1? You can choose to build two things now. What now Jake?
>>24734942Back Weapon System extension to the cowl
Rolled 46>>24734942Well. We've already pretty much broke the universe. I say we try to print our Gundam some goddamn ultra-thuster wings.
>>24734942Okay, while I'm tempted to say we should make two more AGE Builders I think the hilarity of that would wear off by the time we got past a couple powers of two.Actually, fuck that, let's get 4 of them, unless they need fuel/material/power to run them which we can't replicate or supply to that many. .
>>24735007Wings of light?
>>24734942An upgraded sword. Ideally it connects with the arm to work as a projectile.
>>24735027Oh, fuck yes. We're the Crusader Gundam, and we deserve to look goddamn angelic!
>>24735027Hmm, we'd have to design that.Pretty much take the Heavy Cowl, add some more laser dispersion stuff, color it up, give it more points of articulation and thrusters, and bam.Also we want a giant pile of the DODS rifles for our buds.
>>24734942Make an AGE System for Ma G to play with and upgrade.Then get cracking with >>24734982 and mass produce DODS rifles for your Genoaces.
>>24735096How about rifles on the wings?
Careful that we don't make too much stuff. The manufacturing materials are in fact limited.Conservation of mass and all that.
>>24734942A cowl with more thrusters.And a bunch of DODS rifles.
>>24734942Well, now that we've got considerably more production capability, let's get to work on repairing the Crusader. Check with engineering to see what parts we already have in stock, then build the remainder. On the other Builder, we should set it to analyzing occupy it for a while, but it potentially has some magnificent results if it works. Stronger, lighter armor; improved thruster systems; the beam vulcans/sabers... There's a lot of nice tech to acquire. I'd say let the human techs go over the Farsia for now until we're sure it's disarmed of any self-destruct systems or other booby traps.After the Builder working on the repairs is done, I say we look into building some DODS rifles for the Genoaces. Flit did that in canon, anyway, so it shouldn't be that time or resource consuming. Only once that's done should we look into upgrades for our own mobile suit. I like the idea of adding the Spallow's dagger as a backup weapon. Maybe see if the Titus's armor has any application for the Solid Cowl.
>>24734942Weapons Cowl;A rack system which has Battleship Class MPCs with a external Reactor...Shield Cowl;A powerful I-field generator with attached reactor...
>>24735146Woops, accidentally deleted part of that while typing. I mean to say we should put it to analyzing the Gafran we salvaged.
>>24735133so like the double bullet?
>>24735226I would like the wings, upon opening, to be capable of firing a barrage of lasers as some kind of devastation attack. We need one of those.
>>24734742(Oh missed this)The limits of the AGE Builder is the resources it has and the program. The program can self generate weapons for the Gundam and if properly programmed, other units. However this takes a while meaning you'll end up having to make your own designs if you want something in less then a week. It uses base elements and forms them into whatever it needs. At the moment you have enough material for two AGE Builders to build a lot of stuff, but building a third will spread the materials very thin.>>24735146You decide to start with parts for your own Gundam. You check with Flit as he's taking it apart and ask what's broken. He gives you a list and you start having one of the AGE Builders start cranking out parts. You see the Diva's engineers, along with some of the Engineers from the Arm Strong begin to analyze the "Gafran" as they discovered the damaged the U.E. suit was called. The "Frasia" is being disarmed, but after doing it once they can do it in a 1/4th the time.You look through the available weapons and decide to make a few "DODS" rifles for your buddies on the Armstrong.After 2 hours you have 10 DODS Rifles and plenty of spare parts for the Crusader Gundam. You have them shipped over to the Armstrong while you try to make something original. You have enough materials for two big projects or four little projects. You could try to improve the existing cowl design you have with the data from the Spallow and Titus Wears, or you could try making a copy of the AGE-1 to see if that's even possible. Your limited by the data you have and the materials, you wish you could build something awesome like energy wings or a barrage weapon, but your limited in what you can do, but that's still a lot.So, What will you do Jake?
>>24735248In that case we wouldn't need rifles. Mass bombardment means we can afford lower accuracy. Let's just take the beam spray guns left over after we arm the Genoaces with DODS rifles and put them in the wings.
Before anything else let's scavenge the U.E.s for materials.
>>24735288>>24735304These wings, with a rack for two DODS rifles.
>>24735288Gonna keep campaigning to make a Back Weapon System type cowl a la Re-GZ. Having a dockable part to form a simple waverider mode would be excellent and starting use of variable MSes would be a huge jump in tech.
>>24735288Let's not risk making a Gundam. That seems like it could end badly.
>>24735342>you wish you could build something awesome like energy wings or a barrage weapon, but your limited in what you can do, but that's still a lot.
>>24735288Work on making mounts for the cowl so that it can fire weapons that are attached to it.
>>24735288lets build a Gun dam
>>24735288Let's try to improve the Solid Cowl, and while we can't make energy wings we might be able to give it more points of articulation, better energy dispersion, better thrusters, and weapon mounts.
>>24735304>>24735353Ah. Well then maybe some more anti-beam cowlings.
>>24735342>>24735344Compromise. A BWS part with mounts for two DODS Rifles.
>>24735288I just had the stupidest idea, let's make a gundam sided bolter because why the fuck not?
>>24735417>>24735423I like this idea.
>>24735288First have Ma G go over the schematics of both gundums. While we meanwhile figure out how to entrench more weapons into our gundum mainly focusing on the solid cowl and additional thrusters to allow us some better speed/reflexes.
How about better thrusters?
>>24735288Lets make sure not use too much material here. We want to have a decent supply when we go back to our ship for on the fly upgrading and it would be a pretty dick move to use all of Flit's age builder fuel the first time we get a look at it.
>>24735575This. Flit would be pissed if we use up the ingots.
>>24735288If we're limited by resources, could we produce a recycling system? Some dedicated machine for reclaiming useful materials from scrap and salvage could be pretty useful.
>>24735408>>24735344You decide that maybe making another Gundam is a little too much of a challenge at the moment. You decide to try and improve the existing Cowls and develop a new cowl. Your thinking some kind of Back Weapon System that can allow the Crusader Gundam to fly around at high speeds in another form, like a Space fighter. Full Solid Cowl+Titus Wear DataAGE-X Data+ Original Input>>24735599You will leave a proper about of material in each AGE Builder so Flit won't get pissed off.(Roll 2d100’s vs Computer skill. 85% or lower is a success. 1 is a critical success and 100 is critical failure. )

Oh god, we should have kept away the custom OS from Flit. Aside from that we should be scanning the Farsia. I'm thinking our dad's Genoace needs more upgrades to compete with the G-Exes. That or we hit up the Madorna workship and... I dunno, GIVE THEM AN AGE BUILDER?
>>24735663>our thinking some kind of Back Weapon System that can allow the Crusader Gundam to fly around at high speeds in another form, like a Space fighter.Give this setup to Carlos or our Dad or even Arnold, but probably not cut out for us.

>>24735696>>24735690>>24735708Using the Data from the Titus, you find a better material and overall structure for the Full Solid Cowl. You also improve the strength and speed of the motors that move the plates around. Enhancing the thrusters for greater speed and maneuverability is easy. However you realize the defensive and offensive abilities of the “Beam Emitters” the Titus uses and install them into the plates themselves. This allows you to preform devastating tackle attacks and if you turn off the limiters you can use the beam emitters all at once for a short period, giving you enhanced protection and throwing out enough beam energy to allow you to ram through a hoard of enemies unscathed.You have created the FULL TITUS COWLYou mess around and manage to make a Back Weapon System. It’s pretty damn large and clunky, roughly the size of what a space fighter would be. It fits over the back of the unit, the Gundam’s arms and legs are hidden underneath and it acts like a fighter with additional thrusters, engines and weapon mounts. However you can’t use the Gundam itself while it’s attached and on top of that once you separate from it, you can’t reattach it in combat. It’s interesting, but it’ll need a lot of testing to see if it was worth it.You have created PROTOTYPE BACK WEAPON COWLYou use the last of the material in your AGE Builder to make a Recycler. Feed it MS parts and it breaks them down into raw material for the AGE Builder. You have everything you made, including the second AGE Builder sent back to the Ship.Flit approaches you, amazed by what you accomplished.“You have to promise me something Jake. NEVER let anyone but you and me know about the Data on our Gundams or give away another AGE Builder. Normally I wouldn’t even let another person look at my Gundam, but considering you own a Gundam I believe I can trust you."What do you say Jake?
>>24735894We haven't even perfected it to incorporate... Woolf's moves and our Dad's. In time we should be able to let pilots be able to do weird shit like kick off walls to help change vectors. If anything, we should add GP01FB-like boosters to the solid cowl set (or make spare parts to give to our dad).
>>24735876Yeah, we definitely need to give the guys a back weapons system or something else to improve maneuverability.Maybe something like the Crossbone's boosters if the Back Weapons System is too much? It'd be really effective, and pretty badass looking with the anti-beam tarps.
>>24735894>>24735958>>24735894(This is correct. You Gundam doesn't use the XM3 OS, only the Genoaces onboard the Armstrong do and you didn't include it in the data you gave him)>>24735987(I suggest if you have an idea on something you want to make, write it down for later. We're out of material, but we'll be able to go scrap hunting later)
>>24736021"If you keep the information about the AGE-X confidential as well, It's a deal."
>>24736021"I wouldn't think of it, Flit. You can trust me."
>>24736075>>24736078>"If you keep the information about the AGE-X confidential as well, It's a deal.""Of course. I'll play around with what you suggested. I never thought of building another Gundam before. Oh! Here's the data from those U.E. Mobile suits you gave us. There was some combat logs and information our Captains took to look over, but here is the weapon and tech data, both suits are back at your ship.""Thanks for everything Flit, I'll talk to you later" After bro-fisting Flit you leave and return to the Armstrong.It is Sunday at 3:00 PM. What will you do now Jake? See Mellis? Check up on Dad? Collect some scrap and explore?
>>24736274lets do some looting in space! you never know what you might find
Rolled 70, 21 = 91>>24736021"I understand. This thing has the potential to blow modern technology limitations wide open. If the AGE system gets too wide spread we might as well not have even have had the Silver Chalice Treaty. Still, it's too big an advantage to keep it totally wrapped up. If we could adapt this for civilian uses we could do some amazing things. But I'm not going to do any experimenting in that area for a while, and definitely not without your okay. After all, this is your invention. I'm sure you know better than I what the safe limits of the AGE system are. And it would just be plain rude to use a man's work without his permission. Especially when that man has a Gundam of his own."

>>24736274Mellis is probably gonna still be out for a while. For now we should check in on Dad and the other pilots and see how they're doing. I think it would be a good idea to have a chat on the implications of the UE systems being compatible enough with our own that we can read their files.
>>24736305Pick up as many U.E.s as we can fit in the recycler.
vagan armor would be nice...
Check in with the Docs on Mellis's condition. Then SPACE LOOTING!!! Might be a good time to test the Prototype Back Weapon Cowl... Give it enough attention and development and we could possibly turn it into something like the Solomon Express G-2....http://gundam.wikia.com/wiki/RX-78-2_Solomon_Express_G-2
>>24736374Feels like Arnold and Ralphie could use the Baqto data in a new set of gear?
>>24736365You decide to check up on Mellis. She's still asleep and doped up on pain killers. The medics say she'll be like this for a while. They don't know what's wrong with her, but they're worried the U.E. did some kind of surgical procedure involving her brain.You stop by and see Dad after he came back from his talk with Woolf. "Hey Dad! How's it going?""I'm doing great. I just got permission from the captain to take my Genoace out to the Madorna Workshop""Madorna Workshop?""It's run by a guy named Madorna. It's one of the few none-federation facilities where you can get mobile suits made and modified. He has a special deal for us. We trade in suits and he gives us custom ones. Woolf traded in his Genoace Custom and got that custom suit you saw. I was thinking of doing the same.""Really? Wow! Could the other guys do it as well?" You ask."Totally, do you think the should?"Well jake?
>>24736591Hell yes they should. Anything is an improvement over what they have.
>>24736591Well, fuck yes they should."What's the catch?"
>>24736591As long as the suits available compliment their particular roles. no point giving a CQC MS to a Sniper...
>>24736591... Do it, then we can run the schematics through the AGE builder.
>>24736591Take the OS off first.If we get this much firepower, the next battle Vegan will really get hard.
>>24736591>>24736591well it would invalidate all the XM3 Operating System Data, I did but maybe?
>>24736653Well that's a given.
>>24736678If our dad gets a new Mobile Suit, it means we'll have to run the entire data-gathering routine again. I'm wondering though. Does our era have something like Magnet Coating for joints? Because THAT and an XM3 can even up things against an X-Rounder in a Zedas.
>>24736678we might be able to update it
>>24736718We can give our dad the Back Weapon Cowl.
>>24736591"Yeah, it sounds like a good idea. Does Madorna uses a basic common frame that he mods for the custom jobs? I'd hate to lose the work I did on the XM3, and if the new suits all have shared hardware I could probably adapt it to them eventually."
>>24736634"No catch. We give Madorna our old suits and he gives us new ones. He gets more suits to mess with and gets to test new ideas out on our suits.""Let me uninstall the XM3 OS off them first, then we can get going. Mind if I come?"-------------------You, Dad, Ralphie, Tim, and Arnold Arrive at the Madorna Workshop after you pulled the XM3 OS's off their suits. Your sure you'll be able to mod the OS to their suits again, trying it on different suits will allow you to improve on it.You decided to leave the Gundam back at the ship to prevent anyone nosey from taking a peek inside, you rode with dad. Dad and the other talk with Madorna, he happily takes their suits and leaves them to write out what kind of suits they want to have.Dad has already decided, he wants a customized G-Exes suit to his own specifications, the others however aren't so sure. They want the suit to be customized to their roles/strengths, but they don't know what to pick or what to ask for.Arnold wants- A Long Range Sniping UnitTim wants- A Support Unit of Some kindCarlos wants- High Mobility but Balanced suit that has good reaction timeRalphie- A well armored, melee oriented units.Available Base FramesRGE-B790 GenoaceCMS-B/67 Shaldoll CMS-328 DesperadoWMS-GEX1 G-ExesYour suggestions?
>>24736889http://www.mahq.net/mecha/gundam/age/index.htmsuit info here
>>24736889 Well, for base frames I suggest Shaldoll or G-Exes. Genoace is what we have now and the Desperado is a civilian worker suit unsuited for combat. Arnold would probably want something like the Solid Cowl to give him some protection when sniping. It's not like he needs that wide a range of motion, so let's go full-on Dynames.For support Tim should have some enhanced sensors for long range spotting and maybe even stealth-negation. Maybe add in some light suppression weapons or even a missile launcher deploying anti-beam chaff.Carlos should definitely go for a G-Exes derivative. He could probably do just fine with the base model with the DODS rifle for ranged weaponry.Ralphie's suit should, as he said, have good armor. Maybe an explosive bolt system to let it shed quickly in case of a need for rapid retreat. The G-Exes' beam sabers would make a good main weapon, and some arm and leg mounted heat spike for extreme close range brawling could be a nice supplement.
>>24736889Carlos gets shaldollRalphie gets Desperado armored to hell and back(slap on our full solid Cowl as well)Arnold gets G-exes styled for sniping make it medium armor so he can afford to take a hit(counter sniper) and dodge stillTim is tough we can either give Genoace or G-exes as well.
>>24736889This is going to require some thought....
>>24737123sounds good.It would be good if we could get the specs for Madornas Mega Beam Launcher...
>>24736889Desperado is right out.We're running Genos.Shaldoll is an excellent, well armoured suit for all purposes that we can mod a lot. (Ralphie, Tim)G-Exes is a mobility and precision focused suit and are probably pretty damned tuned to begin with. (Carlos, Arnold)
>>24736889>>Ralphie- A well armored, melee oriented units.We can make it so that our gear for the Gundam can be used by him too. Including the Titus set.Carlos and our Dad should get the same kind of unit though. Arnold can use a Genoace Fox/Kotetsu Custom but with a sniper weapon instead?
>>24737175Yeah, but that thing is bigger than the mobile suit itself. Maybe something to integrate into a later version of the Back Weapon System, but not that useful to us now.
>>24736889Maybe we ought to suggest basing them all on the Shaldoll and G-Exes? Arnold and Tim getting Shaldolls and everyone else getting customized G-Exes derivatives, all using Vagan Armor data.Ralphie's suit should probably have extra armor based off the Titus, and beefed up servos. We can provide that ourselves.
>>24737226its why we get the specs. we can play around with it, make smaller versions, try collapsable components... nothing wrong with having lots of data. better to have it and not need it, than need it but not have it...
>>24737226Heh. Next thing you know everyone's running Genoace Full Armour Customs.
>>24737367additionally, order EXTRA MATERIAL INGOTS from Madorna. We can haul those back with the MS.
We should find a way to be able to share the Gundam's equipment with our teammates, so we have a better logistics tail, fight more like a team, etc.
>>24737406We can use the recycler for some of Madorna's use, to sweeten the deal for him?
>>24736911Arnold: AMS-001S G-Exes Sniper Custom-Solid Cowl *you'll equip it when you get back*--High Quality/Long Range Optics--DODS Sniper Rifle *You'll modify one of the ones back on the ship*Carlos: PMS-001P G-Exes High Performance Custom -Magnetically Coated Joints-Chest Mounted Flash Gun-Wire Guided ArmsTim: CMS-TC/67 Shaldoll Support Type Custom-Radome-Shoulder Mounted Beam Cannon-Missile PodsRalphie: CMS-RHC/67 Shaldoll Melee Type Custom-Beam Emitters in Knuckles, Knees, Feet and Forehead-Titus Grade Servos *Added yourself*-Beam Cleaver-Titus Grade Armor *Added yourself*Dad: JMS-001 J-Exes (These look good so far?)>>24737468*Maybe.>>24737226>>24737367Madorna will want something in return for a Mega Beam Launcher, that this is worth a mobile suit. You have no money, which is what ingots would cost. You could trade him something for it, but what?
>>24737468Probably would want to run it by Flit. He didn't specifically mention the recycler, but it's based on the AGE Builder's tech, so he might not want to risk someone reverse-engineering it.
>>24737506Halloween came early this year!I personally think a Mega Beam Launcher wouldn't be altogether necessary unless we end up facing something big and slow later, and we seem to have no problem taking those on with Excalibur.
>>24737506Trade him data on Vagan MS.That is, if he hasn't already been contacted by the Vagans.
>>24737534The Recycler actually isn't all that special. It's advanced but it won't compromise the AGE Builder. It's just a very nice machine that can break down objects into it's base materials. Flit didn't design it, you did, you just built it using the AGE Builder to save time. Madorna would probably give you the specs for the Mega Beam Launcher
>>24737583if you gave him the specs for the recycler
>>24737506Yeah, those look good. My only concern is that the beam emitters on the Melee Custom aren't cited as being our addition, which implies Madorna has access to that tech. Where'd he get those? Are they just generic beam emiitters and not the high-power ones the Titus uses?
>>24737568Pretty much this. Giving him all the data on two Vagan MS we captured plus some combat data on even more, should pay for everything.
>>24737506Ask dad if we can trust him with data collected from the UEs.We can trade that data for the cannon potentially.
>>24737583>>24737617I think it would be worth it. we might even be able to merge it with the bit system... while it would be a lot slower than the normal bits and probably replace all of them, It could be worth it for the power it has...
>>24737629I forgot the citations for the beam emitters. Madorna just provided the basic frame and left the spots for all the 'sensative data' related areas hollow for you to work on. >>24737568>>24737660Madorna is willing to give you Mega Beam Launcher Specs, a Mega Beam Launcher and 50 Material Ingots for the Data on the Frasia and GafranDad says that Madorna doesn't work for the Federation, but he's a good man. He mostly a neutral party however. So you don't have to worry about the U.E getting it, but if Federation customer or a civilian customer are interested the data, he'd sell them a copy. As long as they aren't U.E. he'll sell to anyone, unless they obviously mean ill intent.
>>24737786Well, shit. Is it really okay to release pre-AG tech to the public like this? I think there are some moral considerations to take...Plus, when the Feds eventually come after us, do we really want them to have UE tech? Ah, fuck it. We can take on UEs with relative ease anyway. I say do it.UE tech getting out a generation earlier than in canon. Fuck yes, let's break the universe.
>>24737867it's doing things like this that help break meta knowledge.Also in agreement for doing this trade. Flit only wants us to keep the Gundam stuff private. UE stuff is all swings and roundabouts...
>>24737786Let's do it. >>24737867Considering that We and the UE are walking Silver Chalice treaty violations? This'll just put everyone on even ground, save us and Flit, and that's a good thing in my book.
>>24737975Hell, we are technically a Federation unit ourselves. Any data we collect is probably going to wind up getting back to them eventually. We might as flip them the bird by making this available to the private sector, too.

>>24738062Recycler Data too, I forgot
>>24738062We're going to be unstoppable! TRADE!
>>24738062Yes. Although Dad needs a DODS rifle as well.
>>24738103You accept the trade and haul the suits back to the ship. By the time 11:30 PM rolls around your teammate's (and father's) new suits are full completely ready for combat. You set the Mega Beam Launcher in the hanger to look over later and loaded the Material Ingots into your AGE Builder.>>24738260(yeah he has one, I forgot to mark that down though)It's late, but you still have time to go scrap hunting if you really want. Repairs on the Crusader Gundam are finished.What will you do Jake?(Also the pic is what the Back Weapon system looks like. It'd work well on your Father's J-Exes)
>>24737534I mean recycle materials FOR Madorna, not give the recycler.
>>24738363Check on our Gundam and see if Flit has found anything out about it while he's taking it apart.
>>24738363Can we still offer Madorna to recycle some materials for him?
>>24738498You already gave him the Recycler Data in the trade. He doesn't need to have anything recycled for him now.>>24738408You go over to the Diva via the connection bridge and find Flit doing some late night tinkering one what looks like another Gundam,looks like he decided to try that suggestion of your about the AGE Builder."Hey Flit! Did you find anything about my Gundam?"He glides down from the Gundam and lands near you."Well I found a hidden processor unit that was detached from the rest of the systems. It's called a "SENTINEL SYSTEM"."Awesome! What does it do?""I have no idea""Excuse me?""From what I can tell it's meant to allow the on-board interface with specific but diverse devices, probably Pre-AG security or weapon systems. I believe the Gundam was meant to serve as a kind of Guardian for the Colonies considering it's performance to weapon ratio""So what your saying is that my Gundam has a system that allows it to interface with Pre-AG weaponry and equipment?""I believe so. I have no way of properly trying my theory, but that's what I think""No explosive fingers or hidden vector cannons?""Uh, not that I saw...""Crap. Oh well, this Sentinel System seems interesting. Well I'll see you later Flit"You return to the Armstrong.Scrap hunting? Bed? or something else Jake?
>>24738598HUNT SOME SCRAP!and hope to char that we find something good
>>24738598We pop in one last time to check up on Melis, then Bed?
>>24738598Hunt for scrap, check on Mellis, go to bed.
>>24738660No. It's not a funnel control system, it's something else. It's meant to help Ma G communicate with other Pre-AG Deives and help those other devices identify the Gundam and the A.I onboard. Why? You have no idea.>>24738646>>24738638Roll a 1d100 vs piloting 30%+40% from Ma G. 70 or below is passing. 1 is critical success and 100 is critical failure.
Rolled 24>>24738729And with my luck I'll roll a 100.
>>24738729How would one critically fail at hunting for scrap? We somehow find nothing despite all the scrap around?
>>24738792All the scrap explodes upon touching it.
>>24738792We find enemies, nukes and traps.
Rolled 81>>24738792one of the u.e mobil suits is still funtional?
we need to test out the BWS Cowl some when... we also need to work on miniturizing the Mega Beam Launcher, creating the custom parts and OSs for the squads new MSs... not to mention tinkering with Mellis's suit... hell, we could try and use our Virus program to get information on what they did to her to help speed up the fixing of the problem...
>>24738740>18, 24, 41, 54>76, 81You do pretty well. It's be a while after the battle and most of the scrap has drifted around. On top of that you find that when the U.E. Suits explode they don't leave a whole lot behind. After an hour or so of collecting you come back and recycle all the material into ingots, getting about 25 or so. You visit Mellis in the infirmary who is fast asleep still, but seems a lot more at rest. He kiss her on the forehead and crawl into bed. Things are finally starting to look up. You have custom suits, the Diva are your allies and everything. You have a lot to do in the morning and so much time to do it. Things can't get any better!--------------------"Mass Production of the Defurse is on schedule." A cloaked figure states, somewhat proudly. "8 should be present for testing at Ambat within 2 weeks""Excellent. What about Desil's new Zedas? Is that ready yet?" A mask man asks."Not yet, we're still making adjustments for the cannon, but it will be ready within the next few days.""Good. He's been in an uncooperative mood since he lost his 'toy'. That Artificial X-Rounder proved to be a waste after all. "She'll die from her implants within the next 2 weeks anyway, without the proper adjustments we were going to make they'll kill her." "That's good to hear, no loose ends. I want you to start deploying the oov-d Abigel and those advanced Gafran and Baqto models you wanted to test. Our defeat at Fairdain showed us we cannot be liniate with technology when it comes to the Earthers any longer."-----------------(Well I'm gonna call it a night guys. I'll see you around the same time 3:00 to 3:30)
>>24739077This was probably the most fun I've ever had in a serious quest thread.
>>24739086(Great to hear that! Thank you.)
>>24739077>proper adjustmentsSounds to me like Mellis is going to go more insane as time passes.
>>247390778 Defurses. Fuck. At least Dozle Zabi would approve. And Mellis will be dying around the time we run into them. Well, the battle at Ambat should be properly dramatic. Here's hoping they have enough documentation on her surgeries at Ambat that we can reverse them. Whatever goes down, it looks like the next few threads are going to be quite interesting. Good showing, Crosswire.
>>24739175(Thank you! I aim to please. You guys are doing great so far! I appreciate you joining and participating)
>>24739175For those unfamiliar with AGE, the Defurse is the Advanced Generation equivalent of the Big Zam, and the final boss of Flit's arc of the series. So I guess we're going to pay a price for nipping Desil's Farsia shenanigans in the bud.
>>24739244Does it have shapely legs?
>>24739244So we're fighting eight of them instead of just one?
>>24739175There is still the chance that we could convert our override virus to allow data extraction from their cloaked ship. It may have some information in regards to her condition. We know that they did something, so IC, we could legitimately suggest a small 'recon in force' mission to try and extract the relevant data...If things go acceptably, we could find out what kind of procedure was done, allowing us to have a starting point to spring-board ideas from. The more data we can steal, the greater the chance of getting it sorted quickly and safely...>>24739293good thing we got the Mega Beam Launcher. the wiki says that it is powerful enough to one-shot it, assuming 'Weak Point for Massive Damage'...
>>24739318Have to attract the mechaphiles somehow.
>>24739293we need to stab that thing with our sword!
>>24739330 not a bad idea!
>>24739330Don't forget the Abigel...
>>24739330That's fair, though unless we see her condition worsen, we're likely to trust the doctors aboard the Armstrong.After we see her get worse, then we can think to do this.
