http://suptg.thisisnotatrueending.com/archive.html?tags=Ghost%20QuestAdjutant A.I. Online. Mission briefing begins:You were a ghost operative of the Terran Dominion, under Emperor Arcturus Mengsk. Your Codename is Delta Phoenix. You received a transmission from Korhal. "The Emperor is Dead. Long live the Emperor. " It seems like a lifetime since the fall of Korhal disabled your neural inhibitor and you went rogue. With the help of a rogue Dominion Marine, Jacob Henderson, you and your small crew secured a Gorgon-Class battlecruiser you now call The Daluke. The Dominion, bounty hunters, and criminal scum alike are all after you with a massive 1.5 billion credit bounty on your head. But they're going to have to earn it, first. You have just rescued Mia Rodriguez and assigned Sall Jamesson as your XO aboard the Daluke. With the ship's bridge and living quarters online, it's time to jump out of the system before Dominion forces come.Loading starmap for available destinations, please wait...

Well the current priority should be fixing the Daluke and we need resources for that. Also we should get more crew and start stockpiling weapons, equipment and money so that incase of SHTF, we are ready

>>25821012Ok we need a place to resource gather and repair. I think the jungle world (if that Templar will let us mine.) or Murrica but then I worry about them panicking when we show up. (You just know that they will be trigger happy)
>>25821142>Recommend resocialization.Sorry Adjutant, but this is too fucking hilarious to have happen.

>>25821156Most of our battlecruiser systems are operational now, so this is a hilariously bad idea.
>>25821105We should get lots of dosh if we manage to transport huge quanties of resources to New Albuquerque. But currently I support going to >Murric: Contiential Fringe World.

>>25821109Do the Helldogs get a bonus against infested?
>>25821012>>Corendis: Jungle World, known for heavy Safari activity. Low in minerals, high in vespene gas.
>>25821210Helldogs receive a bonus of +200% to survivability if they are in a single squad and a 25% combat bonus versus opponents suffering from Zerg Infestation.Bonus is reduced by 50% for each member absent.
>>25821012>>Murric: Contiential Fringe World. Provides 92% of Agriculture for nearby systems. Fiercely independent anti-Dominion population.
>>25821236Holey moley.We could've used them on the Hydron.
>>25821236can we add more members to the team to improve experience?
>>25821012Hey guys an Idea.We go to Murric. While there we repair and buy up a lot of food, since it's an agricultural center they should have food for cheap. Then we go to Kilaro pick up people (easy since it's a hell hole) and sell our food at profit.
>>25821012Murric. Let's see if we can get some some supplies and sell them to the urban world Kilaro and make some mad cash. Alternatively, go to New Ares and see about those shipping lanes. Maybe we can make some deals.
>>25821283Maybe if we manage to recruit the L4D1 guys.We should also be getting them some advanced equipment, they're essentially a hero squad.Coach has training as a firebat for example.
>>25821285Finish repairing the ship first, then we do this.

>>25821328But where should we repair our ship? The bottle neck is vespene gas so we need to get more of it but I don't feel comfortable enough dive into some thing new. So that leave the portoss's jungle world.
>>25821283Experience can only be gained in combat situations.If other squads survive combat situations with the Helldogs, they will gain increased experience in relevant fields.>>25821321The Helldogs have advanced equipment and peronalized loadouts already. Loading squad loadout, please hold..
>>25821339>1 Repair first then Murric
>>25821372We have enough systems functional to make our ship a nightmare to face against in a battle. Our main concern should be personnel at this stage, though repairs should still be a priority.

>>25821398I just feel like we are going off half cocked again.
Adjutant, a question. Does the Daluke contain any special equipment such a Yamato cannon?
>>25821408>>25821428True enough I suppose, we could stop by the Jungle planet on the way to Kilaro then. Murric doesn't strike me as a world where we'll encounter much trouble.
>>25821490Yeah, we should go to the jungle planet, but if we want to do any mining there we should ask the DT there first.
>>25821514I just want to get enough gas to repair all of the ship. And yes good point about the DT.
Oh god, we're going to get shot out of the air in Murric.at least we won't be turned in for the bountyalso why did we pass up the golden opportunity to go to "Dick's Paradise" for Double Penetration
>>25821514Speaking of asking him, we could make a small partnership with him where he tells us the location of some minerals and gas and we give him 33% of what we mine. The closer it is to his base of operations, the more he'll receive up to 80%?
>7 MurricYou need recruits sorely, time to repair, and food is a popular commodity throughout the Galaxy.

>>25821537That's not much of a deal. The whole planet's resources would technically fall under Protoss claims, so in either case, we'd be stealing. But, perhaps we can ask him for some information. Possible planets to travel, tactics to use against zerg, etc.
>>25821562True. We could possibly act as proxy miners for them with some of the minerals and gas we mine being our payment?
>>25821553It's a massive battlecruiser, but technically a civilian vessel.I find that funnier than I should.
>>25821440We currently lack crew to fire any special weapons.Schematics loading, please wait...25x ATS Laser Battery 25x ATA Laser Battery1x Yamato Cannon.With access to a shipyard or starbase and proper resources it is possible to add additional armaments.
>>25821109You know, it's just occurred to me, I don't think we have any active sergeants around.
>>25821553Man, that reminded me. We should gun for Starport and Valkyrie schematics when we have the opportunity to act as escorts.Or at least steal Valks as much as possible. They're proving to be our bread and butter on the space front.
>>25821579I suppose it's worth asking.
>>25821588This raises an item on our agenda.It will be addressed following immediate votes and concerns. I can raise the importance of rank and protocol following rogue actions if you prefer.
>>25821553This seems too easy and convenient so far. Can we get a calculation of the chance of inconvenient problems in the near future please?
>>25821597We could also make an argument in our favor of having us mine due to most of our buildings being able to lift off/are salvageable so less minerals are spent just to get more minerals.

>>25821624Worse come to worse, we can subtly remind them that fucking with the people in control of the Gorgon-class battlecruiser in orbit is not a good idea. Especially since we're being so friendly.
We Farmers now?I guess SCVs could handle some loading/unloading of cargo.
>>25821604Let's settle it before we dock.
>>25821644Research labs are probably the best for now. I don't think we're currently wanting for space.
>>25821644I would say fix the docking bays if anything just so we have control of them
>>25821644We grab some more gas before repairing the Labs.
>>25821644For now, we should get docking bays if we do get any more spacecraft just to hold them all. Research labs aren't really needed at the moment.>>25821650Well, they can warp-in units and he'll have contact with the Golden Armada potentially. If worse does come to worse, we could just ask for coordinates to a planet they don't care about.
>>25821644>Docking BaysIn a planet with a lot of exports? Hmmm
>>25821678Oh wait, I thought we were talking about Murric.Fucking with the Protoss isn't something I want to do ever.
>>25821644I want docking bays so we can sort all the stuff we will be buying.

>>25821695Oh, that explains it. Yeah, if anything, we should be building up good relations with the Protoss.
>>25821697Do we even have any money to buy shit with?I hope they accept minerals as payment.
We can start a delivery business, all we need now is a sassy robot and a cyclops.
>>25821644I'd say the Docking Bays should probably be prioritized. We probably won't have much opportunity for research in the near future anyway.
>>25821644Docking bays since we are at a handy place were we might move some cargo and we had talked about getting a place for our structures to land so we can have a construction yard.
>>25821716Credit Reserves are currently at 000.
>>25821706What about chance of spontaneous consensual orgy breaking out on the ship?
>>25821706And surprise pregnancies?
Rolled 81>>25821706Rolling for Cardiac Arrest.
What do they say to us selling weapons?
>>25821706What's the chance of having a less snarky adjutant?
>>25821716I do too, I do too. Also we should check if there are any unclaimed asteroids that we can get the nomad mining. (We have the time to go slow)
>>25821730Do we have any trade prospects nearby Adjy? Jobs that pay money, or rather, how much do minerals sell for
>>25821652Note that the Gorgon-Class battlecruiser is too large to dock at any Ports within this system.All equipment, crew, and cargo transfers must be made by smaller vessels.
Rolled 91>>25821740Oh yeah? Let me try...
>>25821735>>25821738I do not have sufficient Data for these estimates at this time.>>25821751I will scan local networks. Please hold...
>>25821752Sorry, I meant before we do anything else.
>>25821752Well, at least we got the Hurc for that.
>>25821730Lets see if we can sell off some of our weapons (Only the stuff we can make more of).
>>25821719>sassy robot>Not Adjutant.
>>25821779Well then, let's get ourselves a cyclops.
>>25821779Well we had some A.I. that wanted to kill all humans, but we destroyed them.
>>25821804That would be us with an eyepatch
>>25821706You forgot to list the chance of the Dominion following us here.
>>25821826Dominion Fleet did not have sufficient time to calculate our jump trajectory.It is highly unlikely that Dominion spies will report our location on Murric if any are present.I cannot give exact estimates at this tim.
>>25821855Well that's something at least.
>>25821644I remember that our superstructure is pretty beat up, we should repair it along with armour. Possible enemies should then see a fixed good looking battlecruiser instead of steaming pile of scrap
>>25821888The superstructure and armour gets repaired when we work on the components.
So are we all agreed? We sell off our spare Minerals, weapon and armor to buy food and Vespasian gas (and maybe some mercs if we find a good deal)
>>25821905Though if we do have the time and resources, could we reenforce it?

>>25821915Improving superstructure armor past standard operations will be costly and require additional engineers.
>>25821929That reminds me, Engineers should definitely be a priority now that we have the Daluke to run.
>>25821929Can we add bayonets to the ship?
>>25821963>bayonets>On a fucking SHIPwhat.
>>25821963I would suggest several hundred metres of Adamantium be added to the bow. For ramming.

>>25822169Welcome to starcraft. Remember, the original settlers were Confederate renegades and all that shite. Can't have rednecks in space without a few stereotypes.

>>25822194It's IRONICALLY racist.
>>25822192>Blue Mesa Construction: 25,000 Credits to use 8 SCVs and your Nomad (plus crew) for construction.this is a nice payoff
>>25822192These have to be the most fantastic fucking jobs we've ever come across.

>>25822192Additionally, Adjutant, shall we promote Henderson or Chad to Sergeant?
>>25822194You've really never played Starcraft then have you?
>>25822215Fireworks and Beer are mutually exclusive.
>>25822192Question, Adjutant: how many of these tasks could we feasibly perform at once and still maintain reasonable success ratios?
>>25822232Next item on the Agenda are unit promotions, Delta Phoenix. I promise.
>>25822194his name comes from ireland
>>25822232Both.They're our most experienced ground-pounders save us.
>>25822192Lets do all of theses jobs, 1/4 of the payment will go to the people who did them the rest will go towards the ship.
>>25822236But he's obviously the best choice, and it'd be hilarious.
>>25822237Now that is a damn fine question.As far as I can see if we plan this right we can do all of them. ALL OF THEM. MONEY MONEY MONEY. Loads O' Money.
>>25822192Send Daredevil to the Grand Prix. Do everything else (if we have to pick one dropship delivery, go with beer) except gladiatoring.

>>25822192>Murric General Practices Emergency Division: Requesting Medics to deal with "minor burns, lacerations, and alcohol poisoning." 20,000 Credits.Kinda wish Gary was still here to do this.
>>25822248I doubt having one of our guys killing people will get us good relations with the planet.
>>25822247That's a good question, is 25% enough to satisfy our crewmates?
>>25822256Nah we can totally have henderson do gladiatoring. He'll enjoy it.
>>25822237Proper deployments suggest an 80% success rate of available missions.
>>25822269OH HELL YES. Boys time to pull out the thinkin hats. Let's go over one job at a time here...I say we put henderson as our gladiator.
>>25822269Lets do as much as we can, then do a party afterwards.
>>25822267Examining crew roster, please wait.>>>>>>>>>25% of total allocated funds would increase crew morale by 61.
>>25822269Is the 20% Henderson killing people in the arena?
>>25822277I think when Adjutant suggests we do something (or don't, in this case)We don't.Seriously, don't.
>>25822269I love this system. We should come back here often. Lets add the to the places we like list (along with the DT bro)
>>25822284There are no time limits on our current deployments, however all offers expire at the end of today.
>>25822192>Blue MesaMy inner geek is screaming at me to avoid this.But the money is way too fucking good to ignore.
>>25822267Maybe we should use another 10% on a bitchin party.
>>25822291What would that put us at in terms of moral?
>>25822291Oooh~ That's pretty good.We should vote on that later, then.
>>25822293Or Private Kyle Julian failing to win the Race.
>>25822297No no Henderson wants the bike race where you can't kill people. We can put him as a gladiator.
>>25822300Indeed, we should check in every now and again.

>>25822307((Totally spaced about black mesa. I actually stole it from a local construction company. You don't have to meta this one.))
>>25822326I am okay with this
>>25822311Morale would be 153 if we are 100% successful.
>>25822333We're desperate for funds, thoughI say put all of our systems to work for nowWhen we can afford it, then we save our ships work.
>>25822269Do we have any information on the ones wanting the Blue Mesa and Murric General Practices Emergency Division jobs? Anything that might suggest potential trouble?
>>25822333switch the racer to us and I am ok with this
>>25822334>BlackHeh, you have black on the mind a lot Adjy
>>25822326Okay lets do this
>>25822192Okay we send our SCVs and Nomad to go for construction. That's a given.We send one guy to go make the delivery for fireworks and then use another ship to do the beer shipment. (don't send henderson. He'll drink it.)We can totally let barney do the grillin. He fuckin LOVES fire.Henderson is doing Murrican Gladiator.We can send all our medics to the medic event.Either we do the race or our daredevil.Sound good?
>>25822329There is a higher chance of success. However you will be unavailable for other deployments or local celebrations.
>>25822326Leftover SCVs will continue repairs in our stead.
>>25822326This sounds good to me.
>>25822354Blue Mesa has a reputation of excellent construction and customer service. They have no record of illicit activity.Murric General Practices Emergency Division handles planet-wide civilian medical needs for trauma and accidents, primarily. They have no affiliations except to the Murrican government.
>>25822333Agreeing with all of this cept the fireworks.We can totally do the fireworks.Can we put the fireworks in an airtight storage and pump in nitrogen? It'll complete fuck the chances of them exploding.
>>25822379>Nitrogen, not sulfur hexaflouride.
>>25822379Fireworks have a 13% chance of detonation with current safety protocols.I can modify the life support of the Planet Hopper to not circulate oxygen, reducing this chance to 6%.
>>25822395Will our pilot still be aiight?
>>25822378Okay, good. What about the "Zerglin' Dogs" Meat Packing Company?
>>25822379It's called 'standard safety procedures'.We're not a bunch of morons.
>>25822402Just get him a suit.
>>25822402Pilots are issued oxygen masks in 92% of situations. They do not require life support in the cargo segments to operate at peak efficiency.
>>25822404Well apparently it isn't completely standard. Would you rather no one suggest it and not get a bonus at all? If so then I guess we can all just stop thinking now.
>>25822417Yeah, lets do this then.
>>25822192I fucking LOVE this planet.
>>25822395>>25822417>>25822423Seconding this motion.
>>25822417Yep. Do that.Also we should send all the medics. It'll be a good experience for them.
>>25822427Speaking of which, Adjutant, any chances of us encountering some Screaming Eagles?
Come to think of it, Adjutant, have we painted on that image of Daluke welding an Infested Marine's face to a door?
>>25822333Okay can we support this with the added fireworks delivery and adding all the medics to the murric general practices?Guys this is a holiday, they're gonna be god damn swamped with minor shit.
>>25822446Yes, because what we want is to shove the "We were infested once" sign in everyone's face.
>>25822446we should probably have the two left over scvs do that
>>25822449Yeah we have to send more than one medic. It says Medics.So can everyone else not working go out to enjoy this fine day?
>>25822449And get paid good too. We'll spend 35% on payment to the crew and for a big party them as well.
>>25822457More like 'this ship was infested once and then we beat the shit out of the infestation.'Your rampant paranoia is noted and laughed at.
>>25822446>>25822460We're not doing that. We're totally not doing that. Maybe in an important room on the inside. Not on the outside.
I fucking love July 4th.
>>25822473It's really not a good idea...
>>2582246625% is plently, let's not bank on the chances of every job we take being remotely this generous.
>>25822473I don't think you know Protoss very well...
>>25822474I'd have to agree with this guy. I'm not so sure that the ship being infested in the past is what we want to advertise. People might fear that we missed something.

>>25822519Yep...sorry bout that. Fixed it.You know Henderson is totally going to turn into the face of the group. JUST AS PLANNED.
>>25822514And it's probably thick in the air of our ship.Sure, we burnt it out, but who knows what lurks in the air? It might be harmless, but the Protoss don't play with zerg
>>25822513>>25822517This is not the vulture race.
>>25822544Oooh.>I cannot into reading comprehension.
>>25822542Or shockingly enough, they have equipment to detect viral vectors in the air.Holy shit.
>>25822542Could ask them to run some scans if we head to the jungle world that DT is on after.
>>25822544He needs to have fun too
>>25822542You know...we should totally vent all our air out. We wouldn't have stale air anymore!
>>25822569Note that all unassigned personnel will be requesting shore leave after deployments are assigned.If approved morale will increase regardless.
>>25822566That's...a pretty damn fine idea. Make some friends on the other side.
>>25822566No no, that's what I'm sayingThe Protoss are indiscriminate about Zerg.If they detect ANY there is a good chance they'll attack just to burn it out.
>>25822569Henderson has a higher success chance.Also he deserves some fun shit to do after what he pulled at his last stop.
>>25822579Hell yes they get shore leave.
>>25822579Of course, they fucking earned it.
>>25822584Then we do a thorough scrub of the ship first before we leave.
>>25822591This will lower our combat readiness to zero percent.A proper vote is required on a decision of this magnitude.
>>25822579Let them have the shore leave. DP will stay behind and guard the ship.

>>25822584Protoss are indiscriminate about the Zerg they know are fucking there.There's a big shitting difference between planetary invasions and mass infestations and a ship we fucking purged the infection of.
>>25822602Yup DP gets her fun from getting blown up, abducted then escaping to kill or recruit those who capture her.
>>25822601Could we ask if anyone would rather stay behind?We can't let EVERYONE go at once but we could give it a 4 to 5 hour shore leave for each half of the crew.
>>25822604We have our most recent team of marines hold position. Let the civvies in the group relax a bit
>>25822579Approved if we can take shifts manning the Gorgon.
>>25822604That's what we are for, I thought?I mean, we might suck at stealth, but we can kill a fucker
>>25822620>>25822617Yep. There we go. Just different shifts. Everyone gets an equal time of shore leave.

>>25822625Buddy...it's a whole ship. By ourselves...Nah son nah.
We only need to use shifts instead of full leaveDAY shift and NIGHT shift. Some will want to party, some will tour and party anyway.
>>25822640Well, we do have automated turrets.
>>25822663Although the turrets are manned by A.I., they require a crew at weapons control to maintain proper power levels.
>>25822663Eh...they'd possibly shoot an innocent kid with a puppy. Then we're fucked.
>>25822658"DAY" shift, "NIGHT" shiftImplying part of the planet won't always be night or day, so whoever takes leave can party to their hearts content anyways.
>>25822658yup, plus we're on a planet. They have something known as timezones. People who want to party can swing down to where its evening, those who want to enjoy carnivals can go daytime.
>>25822676Agreeing with the shift thing now, for the record.
>>25822677EVERYONE gets what they want! Today is a good day.All in favor or doing shore leave in shifts like they actually do in the military?
>>25822676Shift sounds more efficient.

>>25822706Adjutant what season is the planet experiencing right now?Perhaps we could restock on food cheaply coming straight from the source then go to Urban world kilaro and sell it for a profit, maybe get some civilians out of there too
>>25822716The size of a barrel?
>>25822722by the celebrations my guess is summer.
>>25822732We don't need to sleep with Henderson...so no
>>25822740>implying Henderson is the kind of man who would cheat.>I shiggy diggy doo dad.
>>25822740You're right. We need to sleep with Henderson, Mia, and Adjutant.
>>25822751we should totally get another ghost for that...
>>25822751I think Adjutant would be processorly scarred.
>>25822760here's hoping we find a rouge ghost that we don't need to kill
>>25822722The planet is 0.72 that of standard seasonal rotation, with similar system metrics and axial tilt.It is currently experiencing all seasons.The Freedom Day event is planetwide, celebrating Independence from the Confederacy.
>>25822760If only we were in that race instead of Henderson, after jumping on that ship we would have fucked that ghost instead of bashing his skull in.Double Penetration 4 lyfe
>>25822760Or a Spectre. A professional one to counteract our terrible ghosting.
>>25822770Hey Adjutant if we did shore leave in shifts how combat ready would that leave us?
Kyle Julian has been confirmed as the pilot in the vulture races. Current consensus is in favor of shift-oriented shore leave. I will make the appropriate shifts to keep us at 75% combat effectiveness until we depart. This will improve morale by 6 per day.Loading next Agenda topic: Promotions.We are no longer a Dominion force. It is no longer necessary to use military designations. However, a structure of command increases our combat effectiveness significantly. I can automate promotions, which will be delivered to experienced combatants using previously programmed Dominion standards of promotion. There are currently a multitude of marines available for promotion. Should I automatically handle promotions throughout our crew with recommendations from Delta Phoenix?
>>25822778 You want to fuck Tosh?
>>25822787Sure, automate it.
>>25822787That would be appreciated Adjy, yes. It would take us all night to assign every squad level ourselves.
>>25822787Sounds good Adjutant. We should talk to our new officers at some point though however. Good to build trust between the overall commander and those under her command.
>>25822791No, but damn your bog standard one isn't all that bad so long as he doesn't FEED THE RAGE in the sack.
>>25822791He might know some freaky voodoo positions.
>>25822787Yes.Also what is morale at currently considering we just finished getting away from the zerg, have a badass ship, are currently in a place the dominion probably won't follow, and are going to be able to party?
>>25822827Morale at time of jump into orbit is Morale: 103There is a 96% likelihood of morale increasing after the deployments planetside have completed. Morale is currently falling at -10 per day due to supply shortfalls.
>>25822856Is 103 good?Also we should seriously work out our supply situation while our crew is partying down.
>>25822856I don't suppose we could order more supplies after we get paid?
>>25822856Ah, speaking of Adjy, what is gonna be the estimated costs in 'supply' (I assume including food, water, etc etc)
Deployments are in place. I am calculating mission parameters and deploying our men in optimal patterns.One final deployment remains.Loading personal agenda:>1 Train onboard the Daluke. This peace won't last, you need to be ready.>2 Deploy on Shore leave. Henderson and Mia have extended an invitation to watch Murrican gladiator. This peace won't last, you need to relax.Voting begins.
>>25822856Time to wrangle up some tasty food
>>25822879It is possible to order additional supplies from this planet.Exchange rate will be 100 credits per 10 morale below 100, and 100 credits per 1 morale at or above 100. >>25822878100 Morale is optimum. Additional morale increases combat effectiveness. Lower morale lowers combat effectiveness.
>>25822885Seriously need to up our ante so we don't end up getting captured again and fucked over.
>>25822885Guys, vote 2. This shit sounds hilarious.
>>25822903I say we put in a good 3000 creds for morale
>>25822932We don't need any more morale right now.
>>25822931This is the first chance we've had to train since we had our freedom. And frankly we need it.
>>25822885>Vote ended at 22:21. Tallying votes.
>>25822913>>25822931>>25822946Yeah, after the beatings we've taken, it makes sense for our girl to feel like she needs to take it up a notch.
>>25822955Awwwh yee. right on time.I don't think we need to throw a party guys. I think they're going to be partied out.
>>25822944We'll need it when we're fighting off hordes of pirate/bounty hunting scum and zerg swarmsYou'll never know when we'll be able to relax like this again
>>25822982Do you under money at all? Buying morale right now is prohibitively expensive for very little gain. We cannot afford to shit away our money like this because it makes you feel good.
>>25822982Then we stay and sort shit out for a couple days. It'll boost morale for EVERY DAY WE'RE HERE FUCK YEAAAAAH.That and it lets us recruit new guys for the ship and finish any repairs we need. Dominion ain't gonna fuck with this planet. The whole populace would rise up to attempt to bitch smack them.This is their independence day. We're safe here for now. Worst we have to worry bout is bounty hunters.
>>25823016If Valarian organized them again...wellThe dominion has a whole fleet of ships like ours...but actually working at 100%
>>25823016We are currently losing 10 morale per day. Supply deficits are reasonably high. It is possible to purchase a location to build supply depots planetside once we have credits.
>>25823025Man, in addition to not being an asshole, he has to be competent as well.If only he wasn't the leader of the organization trying to kill us. Oh well, at least we got an awesome joyride out of our defection.
>>25823036Wouldn't we lose access to them when we left planet? I thought we'd just buy supplies for the ship itself>>25823043I know right? He's a cool guy, running a huge empire that just has so many messed up practices.
>>25823036That sounds pretty good actually, we purchase somewhere with resources and mine the heck out of it while building some new equipment.This is rapidly becoming my favorite planet.
>>25823036hmm, lets pull up available land. If not to buy we can rent. We're only planning to stay here for just long enough to enjoy this festival.
>>258230123k isn't gonna be much after everyone pools in their shares>>25823016I personally wouldn't like to stay in this system for more than 3 daysNews travel fast and 1.5bn for a ghost in a what looks like a decrepit battleship would make anyone a fool
>>25823025We won't get that lucky. Even if our Academy was on Korhal.The best we could do is get on good terms with some Fringe Dominion Officer or maybe an influential Fringe Territory so we can privateer for them when we have little choice.
>>25823060Supply depots only require minerals to build, and allow for prolonged stationing at this planet.They can be salvaged for 50% of the mineral cost.Additional supplies can be sold to the population for additional credits. >>25823064Local networks do not indicate any available mining locations. I will notify you if this changes.
>>25823069We're planning to come back as well you know, a permanent purchase is better in this regard.
>>25823036Couldn't we try and use one of our docking days as a supply area like we were planning to have one for our construction area?
>>25823036We should totally do that.We'll need the supplies for when we leave anyway.Also we should inform the crew before they go one shore leave that if they get in trouble with the law there will be hell to pay.
>>258230823k can be the difference between a purchase and one that doesn't happen. Remember when everyone wanted the Nomad and the Factory?
>>25823091Buying some land for supply depots is a DAMN fine idea. Someone give this man a raise.
>>25823093We'll need more engineers before we attempt that but it's a good idea.
>>25823090>Local networks do not indicate any available mining locations. I will notify you if this changes.What about asteroid we can mine in the system?
>>25823093I agree, using one docking bay as manufactorium would give us nice way to be self sufficient in supplies.
>>25823093Bays can be used for supply storage, but not production.Supply depots are located in the Living Quarters, and running at maximum capacity given our engineering at this time.
>>25823116The asteroid belt was located in the previous system, which is currently 75% likely to harbor a Dominion fleet.
>>25823109you can say the same for morale30 morale can be the difference between winning a battle or facing large casualties and maybe even a 0.01% increase in mutiny
>>25823127So we'll need more engineers to be more efficient?If so, kinda figured..>>25823135We ain't goin back.>>25823137True. However we're still tight on funds.Can we start a crew drive? Try to recruit some of the locals to get things up to snuff on the ship?Maybe get a few engineers?
>>25823137Except Morale goes up and down like nuts.There's also the matter of it not being fucking cost-efficent. There are opportunity costs to this moron.
>>25823155Everyone is partying right nowWe can recruit right before we leave, after all the hangovers are dealt with.

>>258231603k isn't gonna break the bank when we go out into the wild black yonder as there are plenty as in a shitload of chances to make credits while morale solely depends on the success of the crew, we stumble and it'll slowly become an avalanche of failures because of decreasing morale.

>>25823557No I mean the training.
>>25823557pretty sure he means in game
>>25823569Ooh, then yes, I would like this.
>>25823557He's worse than Merc Command.And that's saying something.
Subversion is your ally. Your psionics are your greatest strength, so you'll need to make them greater. You have one of the droids stand at the center of the arena, and you sit across from it. You remove your helmet, then focus all of your power on it's head. All of your hate, all of your rage....Nothing happens.You try again, harder this time. Focus. Everything you have. Your nose starts to bleed. Your face is red. Veins protrude from your forehead.The middle of the drone's blank face dents in slightly, as if a small child had punched it.Well... it's a start. You'll try again later.>Loading...
>>25823590not quite. Merc takes a while before posting. Adj is pretty quick.
>>25823569Pretty sure our brains have to take a few weeks off of intensive psi training else we get an aneurysm
>>25823600>>25823617And it looks like not instant success eitherWhich makes sense, we shall train until we can do it. Patience DP...patience
>>25823600If this doesn't go well, we can always fall back on psi CQC
>>25823600This clearly proves we were shit at psionics. Hopefully this will make us less shit.
>>25823666Well we are a mere Class 5 after all.Hell, we barely qualify as a Ghost.

>>25823850So is our total amount of morale 61 or did we earn 61?Also let's purchase some land and get some supply depots up guys. We need that shit.
>>25823885Our morale increased by 61, to 164.
>>25823850Cha chingTime to get some supplies for the cold cold voyage into space
>>25823906MOTHERFUCKIN ROLLIN IN THE DOSH.Did they already get their pay out of it?Still we need to buy dat land.
>>25823925That figure includes payments to forces deployed on the ground.
>>25823906Hey, Adjutant, how many civilians do we have onboard?
>>25823934We currently have 12 men, 9 women, 5 children (13 Supply per day.)
>>25823932WE'RE FUCKING RICH!BUY THE LAND!Adjutant requesting Ads for local land for sale.
>>25823951Holy shit...we don't have jack for Civvies.WE NEED TO BUY LAND AND RECRUIT BITCHES.
>>25823961wait till after we get more crew
>>25823951This may be because I'm quite happy with the results but I think we should give each men and woman some spending money for their shore leavesI mean maybe they'll buy something that'll increase theirs and others efficiency and ship efficiency or something like thatwhat do you guys think?
>>25823951We should employ train them to take care of the ship.
>>25823961We put turrets and electric fences there as well.Get off our lawn.
>>25823985No.Because they already got their cut.
>>25823979We need land for supply depots dude.>>25823991Turrets for sure.
Your training has exhausted you. You head to the docking bays, your crews will be on board soon and you want to personally congratulate them. The Hercules lands first, followed shortly by the dropship. Dana and her family, including Casey, are the first to disembark. Casey has a balloon tied to one hand and cat-whiskers painted to her face. She's currently running around talking about the day's events. >"-Barney says they're full of real zerglings but they tasted like normal hotdogs so I dunno and did you see that clown he was like 'honk honk' and then he was handing out balloons so I-"Then your medics disembark, Dr. Lee pats Jessie on the shoulder. She seems the happiest you've seen her, and gives you a brief nod as she passes by. Next are your firebat specialists, you hear private Daisy talking to Barney.>"Seems like you made a lot of friends today, big guy.">"Naaaah. I'm all about the kids."They clunk past, heavily. Barney's armor has acquired a few painted-on hearts, suns, and a poorly drawn unicorn. Very stark contrast to the usual skulls, naked women, and obscenities marines have painted on their armor.Finally, Henderson slumps out of the loading ramp in his civilian Hawaiin shirt, held at either arm by Mia and Private Julian. >"Ah'm tellin' ya! He was cheatin' somehow! Ain't no one can take a hit like that an' still be standin'!">"You hit him with a foam bat, it wasn't that hard, Jake.">"You stay outta this, we BOTH know who the better vulture pilot is - so anyway, I'm tellin' you, guy was cheatin'!">"He sure was, that son of a bitch."Mia agrees, before smiling to you as they head towards the living quarters. For a bed and not the bar, you hope. Henderson can't get much drunker. You head to your own quarters, tired enough to nearly pass out. You'll take care of the rest of your work tomorrow...>Loading, please wait...
>>25824095>Barney says they're full of real zerglings but they tasted like normal hotdogsWe gotta find out how they cook them.They would make good field rations.
>>25824138Heh, something tells me Zergling taste like ass
>>25824138((>Thinking that zergling dogs are legitimately made from zerglings.>2552))
>>25824095Man I love Barney.
>>25824156Next you're gonna tell me hotdogs ain't made from Dogs. We don't like your kind round here boy. With your city wise edumication and your harvard book schoolin.
>>25824095So Adjutant, are there recordings of the race and the arena?
>>25824156((>implying zergling dogs are zerg infested dogs charred and roasted by firebats))
>>25824095Man we can sleep well tonightSight of a happy crew, that's a good time.
>>25824156Buh, buh.Mah Zerglin' Dogs! You mean they've been lying to me all this time?
>>25824194I can recall the videos at your request, Delta Phoenix.Processors are currently dedicated to organizing day 2's agenda, however. Please wait...
>>25824095Guys, since we finally have that Battlecruiser, who wants to go for the Mystery Box next time we see it?
>>25824237Nah, we'll watch it once we have some free time. thank you for recording them for us.
>>25824336We may need more people for that. How about we do some recruiting first.
>>25824336Nah. If anything, we should go legit if a bit shady.
>>25824358Going legit is a bit hard considering everyone wants to kill us and our current crew are criminals running for the Domin-Oh God, what if we go to Umoja and look for jobs?
>>25824381I wouldn't mind, I want a set of these sexy suits as soon as we can.Plus, delicious, delicious irony.
>In 2552 a crack commando unit was sentenced to die by a military court for a crime they didn't commit. These men promptly escaped from a maximum security stockade to the Korpulu Sector deep space. Today, still wanted by the government, they survive as soldiers of fortune. If you have a problem, if no one else can help, and if you can find them, maybe you can hire the A-Cruiser.

>>25824392don't you mean 2502?2552 seems more around Halo's time
>>25824381Well, out of dominion legit anyways. At least no piracy or anything.
>>25824398Question, can we use the mining locations for our supply depots?
>>25824405Current stardate is Late 2505.((Added 50 years for NO REASON I AM BEST ADJUTANT EVER))
>>25824447That is a damn fine question. Even 1 depot per is good.
>>25824447No, mining locations are too small and narrow, hence why they are for sale at low prices. Mining will not be done via command center, but by Dropships with SCV teams.
>>25824398>>Land large enough for 2 supply depots: 5,000 per month. No purchase option available. First month up front. No refunds.This deal is shitty as fuck.
>>25824491We can sell excess supply at 1 supply per 100 credits per day.
>>25824491Agreed. Especially since we probably won't be here long enough to really make it worth it.
>>25824506So will it turn a profit? Will it be able to pay for the land itself and still make supplies for us? Adjutant with your now advanced math please calculate.
>>25824506Objections withdrawn.Can we do the vote again? This is really relevant information.
>>25824506Therefore can we buy supply from the Murricans?
>>25824506Aye but we be there only for a fortnight
>>25824515We wanted to buy land because we plan to come back here.
>>25824506How much supply depot/day?
woo, just caught up, glad we finally got Adjy a sexy robo body, now we just need to make it detached and autonomous so Adjy can 'accompany' us on 'missions'DP and Adjy need to party hard as well
>>25824521A month is roughly 30 days, so we'll be turning in a loss of 2000. That's actually not too bad. Still would prefer a more permanent location.
>>25824521Personal note: I have scheduled your appointment in the Resoc tanks to learn mathematics, Delta Phoenix.This will put current supplies to standard. It is 92% likely we will find additional land offers as time in orbit continues.
>>25824541Supply depots currently provide 8 per day.Orbital depots provide 16, but we do not have access to orbital supply drops at this time.
>>25824506>>25824538It's late, I'm tired, ignore my disagreement. Changing my 'N' vote on that to 'Y' if I can do that.
>>25824557Yeah...that deal's not worth it.>>25824563ADDITIONAL LAAAAAAND.K guys hold out for land we can actually god damn buy.
>>25824563Noted, might we best to abstain from taking the deal then.I do want a more permanent offer to act as a base.
>>25824596Yeah...we can hold out for something permanent.
Voting ends, please wait, tallying totals.
>>25824595>Yeah...that deal's not worth it.Remember that it's a month for 2000 credits, it's actually a pretty okay deal once you factor that in.
>>25824466Don't make us replace you.
>>25824557We need to find a planet outside of Terran space and build some. A hidden base. Or maybe in an asteroid field outside of Terran space.
>>25824639What's wrong with multiple bases?And Murric was been hideously profitable so far, I don't think it'll behoove us to build one here.
>>25824658>>25824639Why not both?
>>25824658wait till we get orbital depots
>>25824658And let's not forget it's a massive agricultural supplier, easy supplies for us and a smuggling route to Kilaro.
>>25824689Exactly my point.>>25824708Which is when?
>>25824708We can set up a base planet side and an orbital depot. Relax baby.As long as we own the land it'll turn us a profit.>>25824725ages from now
You decide to hold out. Your crew can take the morale hit for a few more days, and something better than that is bound to come along.You dispatch your SCV crews to mine from both locations, leaving just your Nomad for repairs. Without resources to make any, you decide to have the vessel painted in your colors. Purple and silver.You resume your training. There are occasional crew members who come in to spar, so you train with your Cirus suit on. You make slight amounts of progress, actually managing to fry the circuitry of one of the dummies so that you'll need to do repairs on it. You doubt you can learn much more in this fashion and will need to practice psionics. Good luck with Volunteers, though.Relevant transmissions detected on bridge. Forwarding to you, Commander.>"Eeeey Daluke. This is Ken. I, uh, got yer minerals. We're comin' back, read me?">"SCV-6 Here. Vespene's all loaded up and we're scrapping the refinery. Be home in a few."Crews report total mission success for day 2. You are exhausted from training, you decide it best to call it a day and return to your quarters.
>>25824658Because we need more ships and crew members to maintain a profit of base maintenance, upgrades, salaries, and damage repairsI personally feel like right now is too early for a base we need to get more crew members right now.
>>25824736>return to your quarters.Adjy you are welcome to join us
>>25824736Sweet success, gimme a tally Adjy
>>25824747We can get the depot set up with full time employees before we leave. We'll be an actual part of this planet's economy!Hell business could be so good that by the time we get back we'll own 5 places with depots! We could be a chain!
>>25824747Then at the very least, we get the land to solve our current supply issues and produce some equipment (like that Goliath we promised Henderson).
>>25824766yes join us mmmmmmmmmmm
>>25824772That would be hilarious. We'd be like Walgreens or some shit.
>>25824809And the beginning of Phoenix Company
>>25824772Yes we could be a part of the planets economy but I feel like anywhere with human civilization brings a greater risk of dominion forces finding us along with pirates, and bounty hunters. I wouldn't want to bring that to the planet>>25824777I thought the supply depot just gave us everyday supplies to increase morale
>>25824828We can sell 1 excess supply for 100 credits.
>>25824828We can sell excess goods to make dosh baby!Also I don't think dominion is going to come here any time soon. Plus we're going to be leaving pretty soon ish. We'll come back eventually though.

>>25824939There's no damn way we're haggling that much. We can certainly try to haggle but it isn't going to get down that low.Also we've been failing to try to haggle. Let's do that more.
>>25824871>deed to a vacant lot for 40000consider it sold>You just need to take out their sensor tower, and we get the feeling that weather will... not be in their favor?those sensor towers can be finicky things and accidents do happen.
>>25824960...and the 40,000 Credits?
>>25824960OH GOD YES.
>>25824960Oh SHIT yes. So it's not even "You pay for the base." It's "You get all this free shit son!"BOYS WE'VE HIT THE MOTHERLOAD.Hell we might be able to buy even MORE land
>>25824986They are two separate offers.The second is a vacant city lot for sale at the registered price.
>>25825001Oooh I seeRight well we sorta need the land, so...Wait a minute, do a background check on this 'rival company' of theirs.If it's run by innocent puppies and kittens, I'm gonna be mad
>>25825001Oh shit! So we can get BOTH!Guys I say we buy the lot and do this job. We'll have 2 lots and plenty of resources planet side. It'll turn us a profit.
>>25824960will we be able to harvest the vespene gas used to produce these hurricanes? what will the hurricanes effects on local resources be?
((Guys, guys, guys. Whoa.First one is morally evil choice to kill honest Murican men for a larger base and resource capacity, the second one is the more expensive, but still lucrative, honest choice.I have no idea how you motherfuckers drew these conclusions.))
I'm all for the sensor "accident," but let's not bother telling anyone where we're going or what we're doing.Sure, makes extraction a thing we handle ourselves, but sometimes you just don't wanna tell people you're gettin' your murder on.
>>25824960See if we can do something that'll give them the results they need but with less casualties
>>25825023No the land OR the money are the rewards for doing the job.
We need to do this ourselves with chosen mercs. We don't know the hit to Morale
>>25825019Eh...it's dealing with a rival company. This is pretty typical man. They've been handy in the past and did us a huge favor with that last supply drop. This is basically a favor they'd like in return. I say do it.
>>25825033...Damn it, basically this
>>25824960>This will result in base casualties of 89%.tell me more about the rival company on this island.
>>25825033>Not supporting illegal corporate actionsThat isn't very Murrican
>>25825033Okay...so can we technically do both? Buy that land and still do the mission?We kind of owe BMC for the last supply drop they made for us.If we don't do the job someone else sure as hell will. They're going to destroy this factory one way or another.
>>25824960If we're going to do this, ask Mac on how we can make it look like human error, or a mechanical malfunction. I don't want the whole of our sabotage skills to be "It's a bomb." Sides, keeping our good reputation in Murrica is a good thing.
>>25824960Query 1: Would an orbital strike against the sensor base with the Yamato cannon be visible to the civilian population?Query 2: Any Anti-Air emplacements detected? If not then it is possible to call in a Banshee strike on the sensors.
>>25825045we should go by ourselvesGet a bit of training stealth shit and maybe try out some of our psi abilities Besides nobody has to know how we got this
>>25825074This is a damn fine idea.
>>25825033Adjy, could we disable the sensors and then inform the base to evacuate leaving them just enough time to do so, we could say we picked up the storm on our ships sensors too late to stop it, but atleast we evacuated them?
Okay guys here's the plan.Find a way to disable the sensor in a way that looks like human error. (Ask Mac)Sneak into base and do not get spotted. (Don't get greedy. Do the job right.)Disable the sensor and leave. Watch shit storm happen and base get destroyed.Get base as reward.Buy other base as well.Make loadsamoney.
>>25825052Loading Company Profile: High-Rock mining guild.High-Rock mining guild is responsible for 32% of employment planet wide, and has operations all over Murica. They are the largest lobbying component in the Murican government, and provide 72% of the planet's natural mineral and vespene resources.High-Rock mining guild donates over 1 million credits to charities annually, including "Cure Zerg Infestation NOW", "Medics Without Borders." and "TETA: Terrans for the Ethical Treatment of Animals."
>>25825033I don't know about half of the others, but I DON'T want to kill innocent people so here's my question...What are the chances of signaling the occupants of the base before the storm that shit is about to go down?What are the chances they'll run?Would our employeers care as long as they get the land?
>>25824960Ok, never mind, let's pass on that offer. As for the base, we'd have a better time buying food and stuff to trade at Kilaro or whatever it's called
>>25825130They can go fuck themselves
>>25825136they are giving it to us
>>25825130So they're "nice" guys.Losing one factory won't kill em.>>25825115Very suspicious.>>25825136Very suspicious but I suppose it wouldn't hurt to ask.Guys we aren't white nights here.We look out for our crew and number one.This is lookin out for our crew and number one. Nothing personal.
>>25825130Right, definitely not bombing these guys. Their equipment? Sure they can afford it, but not their men.I vote we find a way to sabotage and warn the miners, and get them the hell outta there without killing them
>>25825130I say we avoid that job like the plague. Sure it could go well and we get stuff from it. But if anything goes wrong, if there's any hint of our involvement there every single person on Murica will hate our guts and that's bad for morale, and survival.
>>25825130So they're walmart. Cept with mining.Fuck em.
>>25825163Might damage moral that we are going to be killing civies.
>>25825130largest lobbying compoent ok they die now
>>25825080Currently the Yamato cannon is offline.If it were online it would be at 67% Visibility during the day, and 92% visibility at night.>>25825080No, but sensors would detect and report any air units to the Murican authorities.>>25825074It is 67% likely that Mac will not cooperate in this mission if he is aware of it's objectives.Subterfuge will be required.>>25825115It is possible although if our sabotage is detected we will be held responsible for the attack.
>>25825130Ooooh hell naw am I gonna help destory Murrica.
>>25825130Sounds like the perfect target for a hurricane.
>>25825130goddammit you could have lied and just said they employ the criminally insane and enjoy kicking puppies on their spare time or something.no way about this, fucking up this island is as evil as hiding the TV remote or putting a glass on a table without using a coaster.
>>25825130>largest lobbying component in the Murican governmentSo, hurting them helps everyone, and the charities are assuredly done for tax purposes alone.BLOW IT ALL UP!
>>25825130>"Cure Zerg Infestation NOW">"TETA: Terrans for the Ethical Treatment of Animals.">They are the largest lobbying component in the Murican governmentMore bad than good then.Double whammy? Disable sensors, have our dropship pick up some of the affected?
>>25825173That's why we make it look like an accident.>>25825165We can TRY to warn them if it won't throw a wrench in the plan.>>25825182We aren't telling the civvies shit. What they don't know won't hurt them.>>25825185Okay so it's possible we can have them evacuate.Guys this job is too good to pass up. We can build as big of an operation in the same spot and employ the guys again. No unemployed workers. We don't have to leave people behind to run it really and it rakes in cash. It's perfect.
>>25825205At the very least, allow civs to evac
>>25825182we are going to break an senser
>>25825173But having connection to criminal elements is always good for business
>>25825210I have taken the liberty of hacking High-Rock mining guild employee records for this installation. I report 36 workers.
>>25825228And then have Blackmoon nuke them.
>>25825226We can certainly try to warn them in time to save their ass.Make sure to ask BMC if that's alright with them.>>25825210Sounds bout right. Imagine how many mom & pop stores these guys have crushed.
>>2582523836? We can totally evacuate that. Hell we can swoop in and evacuate all of them in the nick of time and look like a motherfucking hero!
>>25825238We just need to scare em off the island. no biggie.
>>25825185Requesting estimated chances of success of a solo sabotage mission.Ask the Consortium about the time between the sensor net being destroyed and them launching an attack, if time is insufficient for extraction then decline the offer.
>>25825247I have opened a channel with our contact.>"We want the installation offline. That's all we need."
>>25825244Technically it's going to be a hurricane. Nature man.
>>25825260So they're fine with us evacuating them.GUYS IT'S PERFECT!
>>25825257This is not a military installation.There is a 99% chance that Delta Phoenix can successfully complete the mission without casualties.There is an 87% chance of her not being detected and reported before mission ends.
>>25825260They don't care about the workers, they just want to take out the production facilities.Ok, we can work with that.
>>25825251Just arrange for us to "coincidentally" be in orbit right over it as the hurricane forms. Obviously we just saw some shit going down and sent a transport. Could the Herc fly through a hurricane?
>>25825257Time until hurricane reaches base: 14 seconds.Time until air evacuation is not possible: 30 seconds.
>>25825260Good they're not in this for the sake of killing and terror but profitThis gives us a bit of flexibilityI say we fucking destroy the sensor with a huge flashy controlled explosion so the crew members would know that the sensor is downWhile the storm is brewing just "accidently" come up on them with our cruiser and try and rescue them from this weird turn of eventsWe'll be heroes and we get the land and we just closened our connection to a great underworld organization
>>25825297Plenty of time!Adjutant what are the chances we can evacuate everyone?
>>25825185Ask Mac to help you fix the dummies. From there ask him where exactly would it be best to hit mechanical foes like a Goliath or an enemy flame tower or rocket tower. We might be going on missions where we will face sentry towers and perdition turrets so its best we learn early.
>>25825297Can we negotiate a bit more time to evacuate people?
>>25825309We'll have to position a dropship beforehand, and make sure that a distress call gets out to them legitimately.Not the cruiser, they'll suspect something fishy.
>>25825313The installation covers the entire island.If we are to use both dropships and the first objective is achieved optimally, we can rescue up to 86% of the workers present.
>>25825297So basically you're saying that we need to C-4 (Whatever the name for it is in this universe) the sensors, remotely detonate and then get out with the banshee. How fast can the Banshee clear the hurricane area?
>>25825297yeah even if you could pull it off it would look pretty goddam suspicious that you just happened to have a dropship in the area to evac a facility when a freak storm shows up.also just wondering what kind long term effects can tampering with the weather patterns on the scale have?
>>2582534486%...damnI guess we'll have to keep this one a secret from the gang
>>25825313If we need a cover, send the Hercules to a nearby city to the pretext of finding work or buying supplies and so forth. So when the hurricane happens, we'll have a transport ready to use to rescue people.
>>25825357Not only that, but when you immediately set up shop on top of their base than it's pretty fucking suspicious.
>>25825349The Banshee can clear the Hurricane area in 6 Seconds.Recommendation: Mia has pirate affiliations and would have no conflict of interest in this mission.
>>25825344Adjutant, are there any evacuation alarms that can be triggered from the installation?
>>25825344Wait, if we just appear to them, saying we 'suddenly' learnt about the storm and come to save you, wouldn't they get suspicious?
>>25825379Mia we love you.>>25825367Yeah most of the gang doesn't get to know about this.>>25825380That is a perfect god damn question. Could totally save us from having to evacuate them in the first place.Guys too good to pass up. Plan wisely.Also we should but that chunk of land as well. 2 chunks of land is better than one.
>>25825379so we could get Mia to blow the sensors with Knife, then swoop in and save as many civvies as we can and look like big goddamn heroes?awesome
>>25825357Terraforming equipment from Murica's colonization era is still in operable condition.Immediate coastal damage is possible. Extreme tidal waves are possible. Estimate civilian property damage at 512,900 credits. No casualties.
>>2582534486% less people and 89% casualties rateGreat rates
Guys, are we still buying up the second base?Because it could be very lucrative in the long term.
>>25825380The sensor has alarms to notify personnel of incoming hurricanes. They are trained to load into nearby bunkers. If they succeed the base will be operational again in 4 hours.
Rolled 51>>25825409All credits, no casualties? That's the kind of terrorism I like
>>25825379Adjutant can you run a simulation of the following scenario:Mia takes the banshee to the sensors while cloaked all the way and fires missiles at the sensors. Chances of one-hit disable on the array. Chances of detection by planetary sensors.
>>25825409NO CASUALTIES. WOO.>>25825416Hell yes we are.>>25825431Well shit, we certainly can't have that.NO ALARMS PEOPLE.
>>25825416And it would also give us a stable income, which is incredibly important.
Okay guys lets do thisHave a drop ship follow closely to the storm and when it hits we evacuate everyoneWhen they question us why we were so close say we have a fetish for storms
>>25825407If any survivors witness a Banshee, Wraith, or other man made attack on the base they will report it as terrorist activity to the Murican government. Note: Muric does not negotiate with terrorists.
Wait, couldn't we stealthily activate a distress beacon at the base as/seconds after the sensor explodes?We'll have our drop ship pilots doing some systems checks roughly the time we plan to detonate, detect a distress signal, and act.If we can avoid being greedy bastards for once, we should be able to pull it off.
>>25825407No. To every people saying we rescue the civilians, that is NOT possible if you want no further complications down the line.And fuck no about destroying the sensors THEN rescuing them. Adjutant said that time to impossible exfiltration is 30 seconds, NO TIME for rescue.We do it like we're supposed to or not at all.
Rolled 26>>25825460That's why we're taking the Banshee/Wraith right?Because stealth?
>>25825460Yeah we're totally going in stealth and disabling it ourself.
>>25825479They'll see the explosion. That's a no go son. We have to do it from the ground.Also we're killing anyone who sees us. Cuz that's how it's gotta be.
Aww fuck this just blow the sensor up and destroy the bunkers or make them not operationalThis is getting way too complicated
fuck it lets do it, were a goddam former dominion ghost I am sure we have done much darker shit before and this will be good for our people.Best if we don't inform them of how we acquired the land though better come up with a good cover story.
>>25825479Stealth systems only apply to the craft, not the ordinance or resulting explosion.Current chance of sensors exploding: 0%
Rolled 6>>25825496Fuck me...Gah, bring up our options Adjy, and I mean all of emI really don't want to kill innocents, DP was just earning herself a soul again
>>25825496Requesting simulation of >>25825436
>>25825495Loading Mission Profile, Land Acquisition.With the destruction of the facility, High-Rock mining guild will need to recover it's losses. The Blackmoon consortium will be the buyer as no one else will desire the land, thinking it is prone to super-hurricanes.
>>25825494Also moral guys remember Henderson and Delta blew up a fucking ships reactor core in a heavily populated city resulting in 50k deaths including direct victims of the explosions being in our crewSo this should be easy peasy no skin off our shoulders type of shit
is there a way we could 'hire' some local gang to do this for us and make sure they never see the light of day afterwards?
>>25825513>>25825436See previous suggestion:>>25825460Banshee attacks are inadvisable.
>>25825513we are not doing that
>>25825531Hiring a local gang is 72% likely to result in blackmail or being reported to the Murican government.
>>25825520Sure, but I was hoping for character development
>>25825560we do that during our off times talking to the crew
And then they "sell" it to the fools in orbit. ... That is actually a workable cover
>>25825531No. We need this to be blamed on the weather dude.If there was a local gang to do it BMC would have contacted them instead.Anyway, we sneak in on foot while being stealthy as fuck and disable the sensors. Have Mia stealthed with the banshee waiting to pick up the civvies to save their bacon. and a few other ships standing by.Not all of them are going to live but we'll save a lot and that's what matters.We can't save everyone but we can save a lot. There aren't that many there to begin with.
>>25825572Exactly.>>25825560We care about the crew. These guys aren't the crew. And they work for space mining walmart.
Do they even know about us?XO handled communications with them and what not, didn't he?We could pretend to still be a Dominion ghost sabotaging Murica.
>>25825571would also seem kind of counter to that time we rescued miners when we could have just murdered the lot of them.
>>25825578sounds like a good plan right up until the civvies board out stealthed attack ship conveniently waiting for them...
>>25825594No god dammit. We're trying to make it look like the weather did this. The super hurricane is the cover story.
Rolled 86>>25825578>We can't save everyone but we can save a lotThat's like our fucking motto at this point. This.
>>25825594I am the sole contact for the Blackmoon Consortium and most other missions unless stated otherwise, Delta Phoenix.
We COULD blow something else up to cause evacuation.
>>25825552Basically there is no way to do it except infiltrate DP with the banshee (Is it visible to radar when cloaked, I'm assuming it probably is, but it can't be tied to us really), NOT fire the missiles and instead have DP set up demolition charges then getting out of there at top speed.
>>25825595We saved the miners because it was beneficial to us. Remember that. We aren't some goody little two shoes.This is beneficial to us. We're going to do it friend. If you aren't in our crew you aren't with us.
>>25825595we wanted those miners we had no reason to kill them
>>25825612It is possible to rig a vespene refinery to go critical.Note: This will result in multiple casualties.
>>25825612but that would still draw suspicion to the whole situation, we want there to be no possible questions asked, we want the weather to be blamed
>>25825621>>25825612We aren't blowing anything up. Demolition charges blow up. We're disabling the sensor without blowing it up and making it look like mechanical failure.
>>25825600Well we unstealth a pretty good distance away from them. They wouldn't see us uncloak.
>>25825642THISwe cannot afford to leave any chance of evidence pointing to something other than 'freak super hurricanes lol'
>>25825595but we had time to do that and it brought us some morale booster to a recently joined crew memberOur sole mission objective was to rescue them but with this we just have to destroy the sensor and alarms not evacing them, we don't want to be anywhere near them when we destroy itInvestigative authorities always question EVERYONE that is any way involved in the entire fiascoThats why criminals who attack random people they don't know always gets away with it
Rolled 86I think it's time to vote
>>25825632adjutant, if evac alarm has sounded and workers gather in the bunker, the super hurricane will destroy the base and the workers will come out to rebuild it, correct?
we're currently at 700+ replies, thread should be nearing the last pages of the board Adjy, might soon be time to make a new thread
*This entire fucking discussion*
>>25825642Alright let me put this bluntly.We can't do this mission AND be the white knight by coming to the rescue. I mean, sure it is possible, but that only attracts suspicion and either less contracts or the local government deciding to go full retard and declare us hostiles (I'm saying full retard because we have a battlecruiser in orbit)
Proposing optimum plan based on current consensus:>Delta Phoenix has Mia land her outside of sensor range. Sabotages bunkers, then sensor. Signals BMC to begin. Mia extracts Delta Phoenix.>Order both transports to local town under guise of supply mission. Have transports respond to emergency distress beacon, saving as many lives as possible. Optimally, crew will believe they were in the right place at the right time.Confirm mission deployment?>Y>NVoting begins...
>>25825713Ooooh...that distress beacon is a nice touch.Already voted yes just wanted to comment.
>>25825713>inb4 our crew dies in the super hurricane
>>25825727Not counted bud. Put the > infront of your Y.
>>25825729They should have time to gtfo.
>>25825725It's a really nice touch.Our crew themselves will believe that they were just in the right place at the right time. It's perfect.
>>25825729THIS GUY GETS IT!We're sending ships in a hurricane that destroys buildings and shit, what the fuck guys.Although, them being military transport ships (They are right?) I guess they'll probably make it
>>25825778Dey'll be fiiiiine.
>>25825759>30 seconds from disabling the sensors.Yes, but without a lot of civvies.
>Registering Consensus. Beginning mission deployment. >Mission deployment begins in new thread, please hold...
