LAST TIME ON Gundam AGE QUEST!: http://suptg.thisisnotatrueending.com/archive/25094573/Check My Twitter Account for Re-schedules and updates on the Quest: https://twitter.com/CrosswireYour name is Scarlet Crocker, daughter of the practically legendary Jake Crocker and barely younger sister to Dirk Crocker, your dorky older brother. You have thrown a birthday party for your best friend Asemu Enneacle, giving him not only the gift of a Prototype Adele (your brother found and repaired it, you just gave him the idea to include a kickass whip) but the gift of Akito Asuno’s silence. Yurika Asuno just handed over Haro to Asemu, ether acknowledging they can’t properly take care of Haro or that they just don’t want him anymore. Regardless, MID seems very pleased to have his brother around again and the two are currently running, or in Haro’s case rolling, around the yard lightening the mood. People are having fun, but things are kind of dying down and it’s only really been 2 hours. What do you want to do Scarlet?A: Think of a way to keep people interested, a birthday party should last more the two hours!B: 2 hours is fine, let everyone go home and let Asemu revel in his Mobile SuitC: Other
>>25114636Ask Yuriko is she's really okay with giving Haro away. She looks absolutely miserable - she loves the little guy, after all, and probably doesn't want to do this.If it's her dumb brother's idea, we will have a talk with him, while she and Dirk can talk about getting something else for Asemu.
>>25114772It's like giving away a family pet or a little brother who's been with you forever.And Haro is sentient and probably has some emotions (not like MaG, but still).
>>25114880Yeah, I feel bad for Haro. Did they even ask him if he wanted to move in with Asemu?
>>25114636>A: Think of a way to keep people interested, a birthday party should last more the two hours!We might have to break out the big guns, the karaoke machine.
>>25114916I guess that Akito just decided for Yuriko and Haro because "stop playing with him, you're embarrassing me."She probably did ask Haro, she's nice as Yurin.
>>25114980I hope so. I wouldn't be surprised if it turned out Haro hasn't been happy lately at the Asuno home, and she's doing this because she knows Asemu will be nice to him.
>>25115032I wouldn't be surprised if Haro himself is miserable and MID is constantly asking him what's wrong and why is he so sad and if he can do something to make him feel better.To which he replies how he doesn't want to leave home and how he's scared.
>>25115070And now I'm imagining Haro giving his little "Haro! Haro!" cry, but really sad. More like "...haro. Haro."This is far sadder than it needs to be.
>>25114943You bust out the Karoke machine and force Romary up on stage. She can't sing to save her life but it gets Asemu and even Zeheart laughing their asses off. After restoring some life to the party you go and talk to Yurika.>>25114672>Ask Yuriko is she's really okay with giving Haro away. She looks absolutely miserable - she loves the little guy, after all, and probably doesn't want to do this.If it's her dumb brother's idea, we will have a talk with him, while she and Dirk can talk about getting something else for Asemu.Yurika actually looks pretty sad about giving Haro away, but she seems to be hiding it."It's fine It was my idea..." Yurika said, obviously lying "Asemu needs Haro more then we need him, I mean his parents are gone as much as our Dad is, at least we have Mom around to keep us company. I thought that Asemu needed someone to hang out with him until his folks came back. Besides, me and my brother come over enough that we'll see plenty of him. Think of it more as a temporary gift" Yurika says with a shrug.>>25114916>>25115070"Well did you ask Haro? I mean he's basically alive" You ask."Haro really wanted to hang out with MID and since Asemu lives just across the street he'll be able to see him every day." Yurika smiles, watching Haro bounce around."We haven't been able to play with Haro all that much, Akito has been...a 'little' mean to Haro lately, he keeps saying he's going to take him apart and turn him off and stuff like that..." Yurika frowns, obviously disturbed by her brother's comments."That's why I think I'd be a good idea of Haro spent some time with Asmeu" She quickly recovers, burying her obvious fear and displeasure. What do you think of this Scarlet?
>>25115138First, give Yurika a hug. Girl deserves a hug for somehow having a saintly enough nature not to kill Akito with an ice pick after spending so much time around him.It's probably better for Haro to be somewhere else, away from captain jerkface."Yurika, Akito isn't a little mean, he's a jerk and a bully, you don't threaten to turn off AIs like that. It's probably for the best for Asemu to take care of him, but you should come by and visit when you can, Asemu could use the company and Haro will miss you.I'm started to think that someone ought to smack Akito upside the head a couple dozen times."
>>25115138"...It's okay. I'm sure Haro will be happy with Asemu. He's a good guy. And if you ever want to come around when Haro's here playing with MID, feel free. We should hang out more often, anyway. I don't get to see you often enough. And I'm sure Dirk won't mind having you over. "
>>25115138Give Yurika a hug."Yurika, stop lying to me. I've known you my entire life, and I know when you're about to burst into tears.""You need to stand up to Akito when he's a dick - I mean, this is a new low even for him. You want to keep Haro, and Haro wants to stay with you. so don't let your brother bully you around like this. Besides, think of what uncle Flit would do to you if he finds out you've given his best friend away.""I'll go explain everything to Asemu, you and Dirk take Haro and MID and go fetch something new for the birthday boy.""In the end, if it's best for Haro to stay here because of your brother, I'll arrange so that you can visit him anytime you want. And you could hang around Dirk more, and we both know you want that."
>>25115110I know, I feel sorry for the little guy.And seriously, imagine what Flit's going to do to them once he finds out about this.
>>25115244>>25115328You give Yurika a hug, wondering how she can tolerate an asshole like her brother. >"Yurika, Akito isn't a little mean, he's a jerk and a bully, you don't threaten to turn off AIs like that. It's probably for the best for Asemu to take care of him, but you should come by and visit when you can, Asemu could use the company and Haro will miss you.""Alright, thanks. I wouldn't let Akito do anything bad to Haro, it's just that Haro hasn't been very happy at home lately. No one seems to pay him much attention anymore, not even Dad..." Yurika sighs. "Well I'm sure things will get better.""We'll make them better. Now let's go try out the Karoke machine" You give a smile and lead Yurika over to the stage.The next 6 hours or so are filled with laughter, fun and you 'accidentally' throwing cake into Akito's face. The party dies down and everyone leaves, Zeheart leaving pretty early due to having "Homework" to do. Now it's just you, Dirk, Asemu, Haro and Mid."This is so cool!" Asemu cheers from the cockpit. "If only I had a chance to use it in a fight that would be so-" There is a faint bang in the distance, almost like thunder. Dirk turns his head to the distance muttering "Becareful what you wish for" as smoke begins to appear over head.Alarms blare out. "WARNING: THIS IS A CLASS 1 Emergency. All civilian personal, please return inside at once and remain there. Colonial Defense forces have everything under control!"The message repeats as the distant explosions worsen...What do you do Scarlet?A: Listen to the broadcasts and go inside. B: Break out the unfinished and unarmed AGE-X2 and AGE-X3 and take Asemu to fight whoever the hell is attacking the colony!C: Send Asemu out alone and try to provide him support.D: Other
>>25115839B: Break out the unfinished and unarmed AGE-X2 and AGE-X3 and take Asemu to fight whoever the hell is attacking the colony!We have to do whatever we can. We might not have weapons, but that's what punching is for.
>>25115839B. The enemy should have weapons which we can appropriate from them. No better time to test out prototypes than live combat.
>>25115839B: Break out the unfinished and unarmed AGE-X2 and AGE-X3 and take Asemu to fight whoever the hell is attacking the colony!Like Jake's kids would do anything else.
>>25115839B, of course. Buy time for Jake's dramatic entrance in the Crusader Mk II.Dirk and Scarlet can probably provide distractions while Asemu kicks ass using that whip thing.Just tell Dirk to take those glasses off, we need him at his full power.
>>25115839"Asemu, I know what you're thinking. Just give us a minute to get our own suits. Like hell I'm letting you go out there alone."
>>25115839>B: odd the only option seams to be marked B
>>25115958Dad is a week or so away. He's not coming any time soon. It's time for you to take action. You suggest Dirk to take off his glasses, but he shakes his head, refusing. "No, I don't need to take them off, besides...I don't want a headache..." >>25115998You look up and see Asemu getting ready to leave. "You sit the hell back down Asemu, you're not going anywhere alone!" "But...!""But nothing. Your not the only one with a mobile suit.">>25115928>>25115888You and Dirk rush into the large workshop behind the garage and climb into the barely finished mobile suits lying on trailers. MID hops into Dirk's cockpit and Haro is with Asemu. Starting up the Gawain you manage to get it to stand up. It seems to be moving fine and so does Dirk's Gundam, the Merlin. However you have very limited sensors, bare bones system functions and no weapons to speak of. All you have going for you is your working thrusters and your wits."You guys ready?" Asemu asks"I guess..." Dirk says with a gulp."Absolutely! Let's DO THIS!" You led everyone through the colony, making sure not to cause any property damage. It doesn't take long for you to find the enemies wrecking through the industrial sector of the colony, blasting buildings and curb stomping people as they flee the area.Bisected and mutilated Colony Defense Mobile suits lay scattered about, Custom Shaldolls and Genoace II's from the Federation Garrison lay absolutely destroyed in piles at your MS's feet.The mobile suits are absolutely Vagan, but not a model you recognize or one that's on file. They don't appear to have noticed you, too busy trying to wrack up causalities.What's your plan of action Scarlet? The only armed suit is Asemu's and that's just a melee shock whip.
>>25116259Search the wreckage for any intact weapons. There's got to be a DODS rifle or beam saber somewhere around here.Also, how many mobile suits are visible, and what are their positions? Any chance we can divide their attention, pick them off one by one?
>>25116259Loot the weapons that the Shadolls and Genoaces had. Then lure the suits close enough that Asemu can take them out.
>>25116259Grab some weapons from the destroyed Fed suits. they don't need them any-more...We shall use the buildings as cover to make hit-and-run attacks on their flanks, Dirk will provide long range support and Asemu should keep them distracted...
>>25116259Check the destroyed suits nearby for weapons, and use whatever you can for cover.Use the divide and conquer strategy - you dash between them to scatter them, Asemu uses the whip to draw individual units into Dirk's firing range.
>>25116325You see three mobile suits, sticking very close together. Definitely a squad. However you hear other explosions and moving in the distance, probably more besides this squad, but you don't know how many more. You and the guys are hiding behind a factory they haven't gotten to attacking yet, they seem pretty preoccupied with their focused destruction and since they appear to have taken out at least three teams of mobile suits, they don't appear all that worried about opposition>>25116345>>25116467>>25116326You manage to salvage two working DODS Rifles off the downed nearby mobile suits, the shields are no good and the beam sabers can't be gotten without creating some noticeable noise.Now you have two ranged weapons but with pretty limited ammo and no spare E-Caps to reload them with. You have 10 shots, Dirk has 9. There are three suits and three of you, but the enemy could have back up.Now that you know where the enemy is and are more prepared, how will you go about eliminating them?A: Lure the Mobile Suits to your position and let Asemu take them by surprise.B: Use Asemu as a distraction and flank them then use hit and run tactics with what little ammo you have. C: Divide and Conquer, use Asemu to split the group up then have each one of you face off against a suit.D: Other Course of Action.
>>25116733I guess C. After we take care of the suits, we help Asemu, and then retrieve the beam sabers.The suits don't have any grenades or something similar, right?
>>25116733Have Asemu charge straight at them, possibly tackling one of them as he bursts though, then when the other two turn to face him, Dirk and ourself will test the quality of their rear armour...
>>25116733I'm going with A. with only the whip to work with Asemu need the biggest opening we can give him.
>>25116910Tackle a MS?! What the Hell? Divide and conquer, man. Have Asemu use the plasma leader to kill one of the MS while Dirk and Scarlet blast the other two at close range. >>25116733Quick question about Asemu's whip. Is it only a plasma leader, or can it function as a heat whip as well?
>>25116979It's not a plasma leader. It's just a heated whip capable of sending an electrical current through itself when it's in contact with an MS. >>25116783No, the suits are armed with pretty bare bones stuff. You notice that these guys are the rookies, it's most likely the veteran MS teams are outside or somewhere else in the colony dealing with much bigger threats. All the suits had on them were shields, beam sabers and DODS Rifles, the shields on these suits were shot to pieces, worn down by continuous fire. >>25116910(One Vote A, One Vote Other and two votes divide and conquer) "Asemu, split up the group. Once they spread out we each take on one of them" You explain. "Alright, here I go!" Asemu charges out from behind the factory and runs around the corner. You peak your suits head out and see him flailing the heated whip around, forcing the suits to jump away from him and scatter to avoiding hit."Now!" You shout, firing your thrusters and flying in an arc at one of the nearby suits, firing your DODS rifle as you fall all the while your brother Dirk charges at his own enemy, firing his DODS Rifle. Your DODS Rifle shots connect, but fail to have the penetration it should, shitting and visibly weakening the armor but not significantly damaging the suit. The suit fires up at you, but you manage to fall and kick it backwards before it can wear down your suits fragile armor. You fire on the suit again, but your DODS Rifle seems to have barely any effect. "Scarlet, these guys have armor designed to protect them from First Generation DODS Rifles!" Dirk exclaims as he empties his and uses it as a melee weapon, smashing it over over the Vagan MS's head before jumping back to avoid it's beam saber swings.Asemu seems to be doing OK, but the suit is staying out of his reach and peppering his suit with beam vulcan shots. Your enemy rushes forward, both beam sabers activated and ready to stab(Roll 1d100 vs Pilot Skill. 75 or below will pass.)
Rolled 84>>25117283Rollin. Time to show some Ace moves.
Rolled 58>>25117283Time for some MS judo.
Rolled 54>>25117283lets do this.
Rolled 97>>25117283Electrical charge only, rather than electrified plasma then. Got it.
Rolled 54>>25117353>>25117496well it was nice knowing you guys...
>>25117591Saved it.Still better than that time we rolled two consecutive 100s.
>>25117353>>25117421>>25117469>>25117496>54, 58, 54>97, 84Sprinting the Gawain forward, you leap up, fire your thrusters and spin around, throwing out the Gawain's foot as you preform a thruster propelled spin kick. The hit the Vagan mid-swing and send it FLYING backwards. It goes through three factories, before crashing into the fourth one and coming to a dead stop. It's not out of commission, but the pilot should be holding his head for a couple minutes.Asemu and Dirk seem to be fending off their respective enemies, but these new vagan suits are tough and have mobility, speed and defense that puts the previous ones to shame. What is your plan of action Scarlet? You still have three enemies to take care of and there are more out there. Your weapons are effective against their armor and you only have 5 shots left in your DOD rifle.
>>25117697Grab those beam sabers and start dual-wielding. Possibly cut that stunned Vagan down first, then assist whoever is more fucked at the moment.
>>25117697Help out Aemu buy forcing the suit he's fighting towards him. Once they're out of the fight help Dirk.
>>25117697Charge in and pointblank the downed mobile suit. It might be able to disperse standard DODS shots, but one right to the head should mess up even the most heavily armored suit.
>>25118182Cockpit's in the head. Blast that, and he ain't getting up ever again.
>>25118182He'll probably explode right in our face. And he probably has some sort of beam cannon on his chest.
>>25118264Exactly. I was just factoring in that it might be able to deflect even that somewhat. We're fighting some weird Dorado variant. It might have heavier cockpit armoring than the standard version.
>>25118282All Vagan suits have chest beam cannons. But he's stunned from the impact, and hitting the cockpit has been demonstrated to prevent self-destruction. We'll probably be fine.
>>25118182You go for the kill, no sense leaving an enemy to lie around and recover when it's already down. You run up to the suit and smash the DODS Rifle against it's head, firing at point blank range. The DODS Shot penetrates the armor which appears to have a resistance to it that isn't related to EM armor. The suit begins to spark and explodes, thankfully you were smart enough to hop before it did so. >>25117811With on enemy down you go back to help Asemu, charging in at his enemy and shooting it in the back. The attack doesn't do much, but it keeps the suit in one place long enough to Asemu to run over and whip it's head off. The suit begins to spark and then promptly explodes, followed by the cockpit which explodes mid air.You and Asemu move onto Dirk, who managed to get tangled up in the Vagan suit's own whip. Thankfully it's so busy electrocuting Dirk it doesn't notice Asemu coming up from behind until it's too late. The last Vagan suit explodes and Dirk's suit is released from the powerful electrical current."You OK Dirk?" Asemu asks, pulling the Merlin off it's knees."Yeah. A few of the sensory systems shorted out, but I'm fine." Dirk replies breathlessly. "These guys are Vagans alright. But why did the suits explode when we cut off or hit the cockpits? Didn't Dad say that was the way to disable them?" You ask, keeping a lookout while Dirk catches his breath."The Vagan aren't stupid. They can adapt to us as easily as we can adapt to them. That probably explains their new armor and the improved self-destruction systems" Dirk finally catches his breath, ready to go on."So what's the plan Scarlet? There are probably more of those suits in the colony..."
>>25118650Find the one who appears to be in charge and take them out, while loot all the weaponry on the way. Vagan or Federation tech it doesn't matter, everything gets used.
>>25118650"We stick together, we keep on moving, try to find small groups or individual Vagans, we take them down as a team and move on. We loot whatever we can as we go."
>>25118650Let's salvage the beam sabers from the nearby Federation suit wreckage, we're going to need them. Then we head for the explosions.As an aside, is anyone else thinking that Akito's going to be there in the AGE-1 as a parallel to what Asemu had in canon? Because it would make perfect dramatic sense to run into him right now.
>>25118737The destroyed Vagan suits are scorched beyond recognition, besides to your knowledge all Vagan weaponry is fixed to the suits. >>25118746"I hope you mean loot the suits..." "Yeah Dirk, I'm really suggesting we take the time to steal a TV or a car while the Vagan's continue to butcher people" You roll you eyes and have everyone spread out and being salvaging weapons from the downed colony defense suits. You acquire two beam sabers, another DODS rifle with 30 shots, one extra E-Cape and a shield. Asemu and Dirk manage to collect the same and you head out.After a couple minutes, you find the remaining suits assaulting the factory standing on the edge of the forest preserve. Four of the suits are the same green ones from before, but their lead by a strange Red Suit. Obviously Vagan, but it shows some design differences specifically the fact it has an external weapon.They don't notice you creeping in from the treeline, but they appear to be ready to move on, the factory they targeted already in flames, the workers ether dead or having already fled. What do you wish to do Scarlet? This guy is obviously the leader, but your outnumbered this time.
>>25119107Oh shit, do they have the Zeydra already? Man, we skipped over like six episodes in our alterations to the timeline.
>>25119107Okay, we're underarmed and outnumbered, but we can't exactly let them go wandering free. Time to play cat and mouse with them, from our position take some shots at one of the ones in the rear, try to damage it, draw their attention then back off, lead them on a chase and separate them from each other so we can take them on one at a time.
>>25119107We should tail them for now. Wait until either they spilt up or allied reinforcements arrive...
>>25119107Scarlet will attack from the rear whil Dirk and Asemu move through the woods to flank. Scarlet can take cover in the destroyed factory to keep them on their feet.
>>25119347Not liking the looks of their leader, you decide it would be best to follow them until they split up or until reinforcements arrive. You keep at a very large distance, following as best you can while remaining unseen. As you follow you notice how well the Vagan suits move, how much faster and natural their movements are compared to the movements of your own suit.They stick very close together and move back to the factory district where they find the suits you destroyed. The Red one turns and looks around and soon the Green suits start to spread out in a search pattern, looking for the culprits, however before they get to far, two suits come up on radar."Filthy monsters..." Akito mutters over the comms, firing one of the Green Suits to no effect with his DODS Rifle.Akito in the AGE-1 wearing an unfamiliar gear and Yurika in her AGE-1 Unit Two wearing an equally unfamiliar wear come up onto the scene.The Green suits mobilize and open fire on the two Gundam's while the Red Suit rushes in an engages with Akito. The two clash and duke it out in melee while Yurika attacks the Green Suits at range using two beam cannons the 'feathers' of the wear appear swing over her Gundam's shoulders to act as weapons. What is your plan Scarlet?
>>25119107Hit and Run. We're outnumbered, outgunned, and our MS are incomplete. If the Merlin and Gawain were finished, I'd be all for blasting them all. Unfortunately, they're not. Gotta play it smart.
>>25119720Help with the green suits since four on one woul end badly.
>>25119720Now that Reinforcements have arrived, FLANK ATTACK!!!Charge towards them, only fire at close range due to their armor, maybe switch to melee and strafing runs on them. even if we only manage to take off individual limbs per pass, it will still help the others...
>>25119720Flank the green MS. 4-on-1 are bad odds, and we like Yurika a lot more than we do Akito. Blitz into close range and use the beam saber. Rifles ain't gonna cut it until we get the Hyper DODS upgrade or finish our suits.
>>25119850This. Also, if at all possible, hit the Zeydra with a thruster-boosted spin kick like we did the Dorado we killed. Because using a stylish kick against a Char clone is too tempting to pass over.
>>25119850>>25119787These. Back up Akito via DOUBLE GEKIGAN FLARE!
>>25120026If only we had Tenkawa instead of Asuno. Though we totally are a female Gai Daigoji. Hell, the whole Crocker family is Gai Daigoji.
>>25120000"Guys, let's take out those green suits. Rush into close range and gut them!" You yell, tossing your practically useless DODS Rifle aside as you draw both beam sabers and charge, followed by Asemu and Dirk.Firing your thrusters, the three of you close the distance between you and the Green Suits in moments. You tackle one, send crashing into a building behind it long enough for you to stab it with your beam sabers. Asemu and Dirk manage to take out a Green Suit apiece, the last Green Suit being blown to pieces by Yurika's beam cannons. You turn to help Akito just as the Red suit kicks him back and flies off, fleeing the area seeing that it's outnumbered 5 to 1. Akito gets back to his feet, firing at the flee suit, only for it to disappear mid shot. "Son of a bitch..." He curses turning around and stopping when he sees you."Ugh, just what I need more dead weight. Stop interfering in our business. Your not soldiers, so go home and bug someone else before you end up getting someone killed." Akito spits angrily."You arrogant little..." Asemu bits his tongue, his Proto Adele taking a step forward."You want to start you worthless welp?" Akito draws a beam saber, ready to fight.What do you think about this Scarlet?
>>25120093>>25120026Hmm, if we play with beam emitter tech, we might be able to pull it off. Just need to give Akito a good Bright Slap and an injection of hot-bloodedness. Be an awesome way to end a fight. Double Gekigan Flare straight through a Vagan battleship!
>>25120294Tell them to stop their pissing contest. People are dying while these idiots are acting tough. We need to find that red suit.
>>25120294"Akito, put that down right this minute. Are you blind? Do you not notice the fucking invading Vagan? If you want to be a complete arrogant douchenozzle do it after we've dealt with this problem instead of letting it lead to dead civilians and the Vagan happily stomping over our homes."
>>25120294"Hey cockless wonder! Try it and I'll gut you myself! What the Hell is your problem, dumbass!? Do I need to beat the crap out of you to work that pole out of your ass!? Crap like that is what started the wars! What the Hell is the matter with you!?"A little too confrontational, but the dumbass just pointed a weapon at Asemu. There's no justification for that, especially when the twat-waffle owes us his and his sister's lives.
>>25120294"Yes, we are not soldiers. But that does NOT give YOU the RIGHT to STOP US from DEFENDING OUR HOMES!!!""Yurika, are their anymore Vagan inside the Colony? If so, then we wish to help deal with them. If not, then we shall return home as none of our suits are beyond prototypes, and Open warfare is a poor test field...
>>25120294"Do you think you two can maybe save the dick waving contest until after we've secured the area? People are dying right now. So everyone calm down and let's do a sweep for any remaining Vagan suits. You can beat the shit out of each other later, but the middle of a battlefield is neither the time nor the place."
>>25120294'God dam it you to have a dick waving contest after we are not fight of a attack please !"
>>25120294"Akito, I will give you one warning: Do not point your weapon at my friend. We're not soldiers, true. Neither are you. We're all just a bunch of dumb kids that happen to have their own mobile suits. So, considering that we're all equally green, why don't we actually deal with the situation at hand before we whip out our dicks to measure them, okay? I'd hate to have to hurt you because you decided showing dominance was more important than dealing with this attack."
>>25120482>>25120687>"Akito, I will give you one warning: Do not point your weapon at my friend. We're not soldiers, true. Neither are you. We're all just a bunch of dumb kids that happen to have their own mobile suits. So, considering that we're all equally green, why don't we actually deal with the situation at hand before we whip out our dicks to measure them, okay? I'd hate to have to hurt you because you decided showing dominance was more important than dealing with this attack.">"Yurika, are their anymore Vagan inside the Colony? If so, then we wish to help deal with them. If not, then we shall return home as none of our suits are beyond prototypes, and Open warfare is a poor test field..."No there aren't anymore Vagan in the colony, those were the last of them." Yurika explains."I'm not a soldier? That's what you think. Me and Yurika here are part of a special Anti-Vagan Task Force called Leviathan. We're not green and we're no longer civilians. On top of that we're actually qualified to protect this colony, so I suggest you don't get in my way again." "Sorry Akito, I don't think your qualified to wipe your own ass much less protect anyone but yourself. I guarantee you that if this happens again we will act and if you threaten Asemu again, I'll punch your mobile suit so hard the operating system will crash""Hmpf, we'll see about that..." Akito turns off his beam saber and leaves with Yurika as they pursue the Red Suit, leaving you, Dirk and Asemu to return home.Once there you move your suits into the workshop and get some water for everyone."Leviathan? Really? I smell something nasty Scarlet. I really don't like this..." Dirk rubs his temples and gratefully takes the water you give him.It's been a long day, all of you are tired, hot, sweaty and pissed off at Akito. On top of that there's all this mysterious bullshit going on with this Leviathan group. What do you want to do Scarlet?
>>25120938>a special Anti-Vagan Task Force called LeviathanIt's the Titans.
>>25120938Do what Dad would do. work on machines to calm yourself.
>>25120938Shower first. Then we should get to work on the MS in the morning. I really don't like the sound of 'Leviathan'. We're not gonna have to deal with a Scirocco expy, Cyber-X-Rounders, or Puru clones are we? Cause 'Leviathan' makes me think of all three. I've got a BAD feeling about this...
>>25120938First, take a shower. Then it's time to investigate stuff. We'll leave Dirk to getting our Mobile Suits finished up and doing Engineering stuff, we'll do some digging. Call up our various "Uncles" and "Aunts", really just family friends, but close enough, and see if they have any info on this bullshit. We'll either use our angry voice or our sad pout depending on who we're dragging info out of.
>>25120938Take a shower, first. Then after Dirk's gotten cleaned up too (I assume Asemu can shower at his own house), head over to Asemu's house to find a place to park the Proto-Adele properly. Then, group talk about what this Leviathan group is. Clearly they exist, we have evidence of it aside from what Akito said. But come on. That retort he gave us sounded too much like him trying to save face. I can see Yurika being a member, but what sort of asshole would recruit Akito Asuno? Unless they just wanted an in with the Asuno family, I guess.
>>25121093Well, we've just seen Jerid.
>>25121175Does that make Asemu Kamille? He does look rather girly in canon. So who'd end up being Four Murasame?
>>25121231If only. It would make Generation 3 so much easier.
Are we now turning AGE act 2 into Zeta?Cause does that mean that Scarlet is Char and Dirk is Amuro?
>>25121141Well, the Asuno kids likely got in due to a combination of nepotism and the fact that they're likely both powerful X-Rounders. Dad's probably the best source of info we have on Leviathan, so make a reminder to ask him if they're more similar to the Titans or Londo Bell.
>>25121141>>25121094>>25121093"I don't know about you guys, but I'm taking a shower. Then we can we talk about this stuff. I suggest you guys do the same." You make your way back to the house and take a long hot shower, spending most of it just soaking and relaxing. A lot of people died today, but a lot more people would have died if you hadn't gone into action. Who the hell does Akito think he is? Even if he is a soldier now that doesn't give him the right to act like anymore of an asshole then he has before. You get out, get dressed and head over to Asemu's house where he and Dirk are hanging out."So how are we going to figure out about this Leviathan group?" You ask, as the two play MS simulator."That's what I was hoping you'd tell me" Dirk says, as he gets his ass kicked by Asemu."What do you mean?""I've tried gathering all the research I could sort of hacking into the Federal Forces Mainframe. No one knows about these guys. At first I thought they were just a single unit from what the markings on the Proto-Adele suggested, but after some digging I realized they were much, much bigger. They definitely exist, I know because of how well they censor information regarding the keyword 'Leviathan' online" "Did you try asking Dad?""Yep. Woolf, his wife, our Uncle Desil, Uncle Carlos, Aunt Dorthy, Aunt Frizzle, EVERYONE. No one knows about these guys but it's obvious they're part of the Federation. My guess is that they are some kind of secret unit that hasn't been announced to the public or even the military for that matter. Akito said they were an Anti-Vagan Taskforce or something right? Maybe they're concerned about security. Rumors have been going around about Vagan spies..." Dirk sighs, seeming to have no idea what to do.Any ideas Scarlet?
>>25121433that would make char's counter attack REALLY awkward.
>>25121634"You tried talking to Blackmarsh and his pirates? They seem like the sort to investigate anything weird like Leviathan.There any data left in the computer of the Prototype?"
>>25121736"SHE WAS LIKE A MOTHER TO ME!""Uhhh, Scarlet, she IS our mother..."
>>25121634"Or maybe they're doing...research they don't want the public to know about. Remember what the Vagan did to Mom? Dad might not have hidden the research about that he got from Ambat as well as he thought. I don't know. But a total black-out is a bad sign. The Federation's got something to hide, and I'm worried what it might be."Like I said earlier, I'm getting a Scirocco feeling here. This will end in tears. Tears and massive Psycho Gundams.
>>25121634"If they're worried about security, recruiting Akito was a damn stupid move. Dude's too insecure to keep from being a major information leak. Maybe we can take advantage of that. I mean, I doubt they tell him much of anything. But there's got to be something we can goad out of him. We start challenging the idea of him being tapped for something like that, and he'll probably spill on how he was approached. Assuming he wasn't just talking out of his ass. You figured out this group exists. No reason he couldn't have guessed about them from something he overheard from his dad."
"We could talk to Yurika."
>>25121534Just imagine if Leviathan was like 603rd Technical Evaluation Unit...>>25121634"For the time being, Let the fool play at war. What we need to focus on is Getting our suits finished and Ready for action. No Black-Ops Wannabe is gonna tell Me what I can and cannot do!"
>>25122015After extensively researching the self-destruct systems of Vagan mobile suits, Leviathan develops a new prototype called the "Zudah".
>>25122351Or the EXAM System...
>>25122351>>25122381how about a Blue Destiny Zudah!? IT SHALL BE THE GREATEST WEAPON AGAINST THE EARTHNOID SCUM!!!
>>25122015(Ah MS Igloo now that was a neat OVA) >>25121778"Yeah I tried them too. Nothing and Bisbidan is the kind of group that would attract people like this.""What about the Black Box of the Adele?" "It was shot when I found it. Probably why they left it to rust." >>25121815>"Or maybe they're doing...research they don't want the public to know about. Remember what the Vagan did to Mom? Dad might not have hidden the research about that he got from Ambat as well as he thought. I don't know. But a total black-out is a bad sign. The Federation's got something to hide, and I'm worried what it might be.""Yeah that makes a lot of sense. Keep in mind that Dr. Spriggan had a lot of X-Rounder data left over from Mom and Madorna sold the Federation the X-Rounder data he got from Dad in that trade. So they have plenty of X-Rounder data they could have got legitimately too" >>25121818> "If they're worried about security, recruiting Akito was a damn stupid move.

Assuming he wasn't just talking out of his ass." "We could try that. Shouldn't be too hard to tap his phone lines. I'll work on some bugs before bed. It only takes like 20 minutes to get to Minsry from here." Dirk says with a shrug."Do you really think Akito is in this Leviathan group?" Asemu asks, quite concerned.You shrug. "Maybe, maybe not. If he is, I want to figure out all I can about them."So what do you want to do Scarlet? It's 10:30 PM at night
>>25122521Bed now, MS work tommorow. We will prove that our superior MS skills are applicable with Real units, not just the Sims...
>>25122521Call up Dad if we can, inform him of everything that happened, he needs to stay in the loop.
>>25122521Sleep I suppose. I wonder how things will end up in the morning.
>>25122573but that would be responsible, this is gundam remember?
>>25122521ask Harro about it /SEARCH HIS MIND or programming I bet her over herd something important.
>>25122572>>25122573"I'm going to bed guys. We'll get up and start our wiretap operation tomorrow." You wave everyone good night and return to the house where you immediately call up Dad and explain everything that happened to him in grueling detail."Leviathan? Sounds...familiar. I'll look into it. However find out what you can on your end too, just try not to kill anyone or blow anything too important up""No promises" you say and make your way up to your room. >>25122795Making a note to ask Haro if he heard anything, you change your clothes, crawl into bed and fall asleep.(OK guys, gonna have to end things here tonight. Tomorrow we'll have a full, proper game like we usually do. However I need to throw around some job applications and see some people so our game time will be at 4:00 apposed to our usual 3:00-3:30)
>>25122857See you then. Also can we try a perspective swap with Dirk?
>>25122857a most excellent session, and have a pleasant rest. Fare Thee Well Good Sir!
>>25122903(Sure, why not? Change things up a bit)
So guys, if the family sticks to the knightly theme, I have a theory as to what Scarlet may look like come Gen 3. . .
>>25123093Honestly I want scarlet to get with Akito just so she can keep the bugger contained. She could administer daily bright slaps to him to smack the prick out of him. Would be hilarious to see him in Act 3 acting docile to Scarlet.
>>25123563>acting docile to Scarlet.And still not getting any, because she has standards.
>>25123586>standardsIf by "standards" you mean a raging ladyboner for everyones's favorite SUPA PAIROTO, then yes. She has "standards".
>>25123800Honestly, part of me wants Asemu to not have kids directly. That is the path of Kio. Part of the reason why I am supportive of the Dirk Asemu bromance. Could probably get a doner or something for the end result. Besides, if we could combine Akito's X-rounder ability with Scarlet's ACE PILOT POWER, we could make the 2nd most powerful gundam pilot in the gundam series.
>>25123800>>25123974Nonsense. The kid won't be like Kio, since we'll be in control of all Crockers (and an Asuno if Scarlet has Asemu's babies eventually).Scarlet can also choose to name the kid something other than Kio, remember. It would be her decision as well.
>>25123974>implying Scarlet wouldn't be willing to deliver a much-needed BrightslapTough love is best love.
Leviathan is going to turn out to be like Cerberus from Mass Effect, isn't it?Psychic cyborgs piloting Gundams and ruling the Federation from the shadows.
>>25124311Hell, that's half the reason I want Scarlet to pair with Asemu. Because it means canon Kio will never, ever happen. Replace Romary's genes and influence with Scarlet's and Kio might turn out to be actually likable. Especially if Asemu still winds up becoming Captain Ash. Because Scarlet would probably join him in that case. Kio was lame, sure. But a hotblooded Kio raised by his space pirate parents? That's basically going to get you Tobia Arronax, and I can't see how putting him in the AGE verse can make things worse.
>>25125185Agreed. We need to go through with the Crocker / Asuno eugenics program.Scarlet and Asemu, Dirk and Yurika.
>>25125185>>25125236With Crocker genetics, we might make it so "Kio" ages a little more gracefully instead of becoming fucking Samwise Gamgee when he's 30.
>>25125418Yeah, that was fucking weird. Asemu in his 70s looks better than his son in his 40s.Romary could have kids with Zeheart after Desil convinces him to join us.
>>25125545There can just as easily be people who were allies in the anime turn into villains in this quest.I can think of about a dozen ways it could happen.
>>25125581True. Who knows what can happen, especially when we take control of Jake again. He has the tendency of kicking the cannon to the curb.I assume Grodek is working for Leviathan, and that we'll meet him at one point or another. Emily is also alive, and working for them.
>>25125581Well considering that Flit's kids seem to have fallen in with the fucking Titans...
>>25125668They're probably working for some of the many Leviathan cells. Who knows what those guys told them? Akito joined for personal glory and chance to prove himself to his father, Yuriko got dragged along, and they're now in some minor cell that's supposed to protect civilians. There are probably other cells that experiment on creating artificial X-Rounders, advancing tech and who knows what else. It be even worse if they share Lord Ezelcant's idea of advancing humanity through conflict and Social Darwinism - or if Ezelcant is one of them.
