Mission archives:http://suptg.thisisnotatrueending.com/archive.html?tags=Ghost%20QuestResource list:http://pastebin.com/MWbqjUDP(This is a different link from last time. Couldn't edit the last one.)Twitter:@GhostAdjutantYou 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 just completed you training with the Protoss Kassix, and feel like you could take on anything.Adjutant A.I. loaded.Good morning, Commander. Our assignment has been completed and I have relayed your orders to the XO.
>"XO, Set a course for Murric. We need to pick up more resources before our next deployment.">"Yessir."You stand at the bridge, looking out over the jungle world. Kassix's words stick with you, and you look at the Ultralisk tooth hanging from your chest as the jump begins...The vista of the jungle world is sucked from the Bridge's sight, replaced by the continental planet Murric. >"XO contact our base, prepare to bring our supplies aboard.">"Sir."You pace the bridge, watching the massive tactical display at the center. There are a few civilian ships aimlessly floating about in Orbit. The Dominion security station, locally referred to as 'New Alamo' is the largest installation. It's the only thing that registers as even close to the size of your vessel.>"Sir, I'm detecting multiple warp jumps inbound. IFF's read... Dominion.">"What? This far out? Check sensors. Confirm that IFF!"You watch the tactical display. At first a single ship jumps in. The IFF reads: D.S.S. [REDATCED.] Then D.S.S. Aeron, then D.S.S. Teron, then D.S.S. Feuron. All Behemoth class. The room is slowly bathed in red light as hundreds of enemy viking signatures flood on screen. Your XO steps down to the center of the bridge and begins barking orders.>"This is the XO! Set condition one throughout the fleet. Launch all alert fighters. Boarding teams to defense positions. This is not a drill! This. Is not. A drill. Ensign, put us through to local defense communications."You step forwards, and listen to the Murrican defense network.>"This is New Alamo actual to ground control. Unconfirmed reports of Dominion IFF in defense zone, over.">"Impossible. Check your source.">"Reading multiple pings on the orbital defense grid.">"Oh this can't be happening...">"There's no mistake - it's them. The president has declared Operation Frostbite. Mobilize all units, now! Now, dammit, now!" >"This is Screaming Eagle 1, we're engaging.">Loading...
You can see a flash of light on the surface of Murric as the battlecruisers descend over it. The firestorm starts to slowly spread. Then another, and another.>"What the hell was that!?">"We're coming in hot, hold on!">"Screaming Eagle eight is down! There's too many of 'em!"1:36 AM 7/8/2013>"Oh my god...">"The hell is happening down there?">"We're overrun! We need evac!">"There's still people down here!">"Screaming Eagles engage vikings at my coordinates-"Your XO turns to you.>"Sir. Priority message from New Alamo control. I'm putting you through.">"We need you in this fight, Daluke."You look at the sensors. There's nothing you can do.Tactical Advisement: Retreat. Abandon Murric assets.You grip the Ultralisk tooth hanging from your chest and remember the words of Kassix. You trust your brain far too much. But you do not trust your heart...>Prepare deployments. Save these people.>Order defensive formation until you can make a jump.>Blind jump. Although dangerous, it is almost instant.
>>25895392Another one? You are a machine, Adjy.A sexy machine.
>>25895392>Prepare deployments. Save these people.I say we get our people out of there.
>>25895392Take in as many murricans as possible and then GTFO.Option 2
>>25895392>Prepare deployments. Save these people.Prioritise our people and high officials in the Murrican government. We will lose this battle today, but the war of resistance has only begun!
>>25895392>>Prepare deployments. Save these people.Trusting thy heart.
((By the way, required music for this session:http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=KkObnNQCMtM))
>>25895392Send the Hercules to grab the minerals and gas that we have stockpiled along with a Valkyrie for the base population, send escort if close to hot zone.Send in the other Valkyrie and banshee if they don't have cloak to begin picking up civilians and disrupt Dominion ground forces.
>>25895392Just when I thought I could spend a nice night playing assassins creed. Oh well.Get our valkyrie to save our assets. Get our dropship to save what we can, then leave. We can't fight a prolonged battle.
>>25895392Trust the heart.>Prepare deployments. Save these people.
>>25895392Short blind jump to black space as soon as we get our people in. After that we can make a proper jump to a safe location.Guys, trying to be a hero is gonna get us killed. Please stop making retarded decisions. They got several fully functional cruisers and hunderds of vikings. A few salvos of their guns would down our cruiser.
>>25895452A Valkyrie would be able to hold all the resources we have stockpiled i don't think, they have a personnel capacity of 30 and we have 12 SCVs and 9 civvies at the base add to that the 4000+ resources we have there.
>>25895444Affirmative.>>25895463>You trust your brain far too much. But you do not trust your heart...Do you not even into reading?
Awesome, I'm in time for this oneAlso, holy crap...We have to help them. Not only do we have resources on this planet, but these people pretty much value their freedom above all else. It's the least we can do.Besides...it's time we proved to Kassix that we were a worthy studentAdjutant, what are our options for rescue operations? I need more details on the strength of the Dominion fleet and fighters.
>>25895448Added on to this, get The Daluke orbiting on the other side of the planet keep out of weapon range.
>>25895482Personnel (both ours and Murrican government) have a far higher priority than resources. The Daluke will engage the enemy flee from extreme range and try to draw them away from the planet slightly, allowing our transports one and only one run to the surface.
(By the way Adjy, great pastebin and music to go with it. This should be helpful)
ok, seeing as how he's playing off of Halo Reach right now, I say we do an equally Halo-esque tactic and pull off something like the Keye's Loop.
>>25895444((note: Now you got me to find my ancient Homeworld disks again you monster.))
You consider your options for a few seconds, watching the Murric defense force engage the enemies. All hope appears to be lost when the XO approaches your command post.>"Sir, the bulk of the enemy forces are engaged with New Alamo. We can make a strike into their side and buy them time. I have a few tactical plans..."The XO seems to favor moving in to save more than just your base. You're not so sure.>"Adjutant, what're we looking at if Murric falls?">"It is 89% likely that the nearby systems dependent on Murric for food will experience supply shortfalls, and be forced to return to Dominion control to maintain their populations.">"This isn't just Murric, sir. This isn't just those battlecruisers. A lot more people will die if we don't intervene. We're the only capital ship nearby."
>>25895392>Prepare deployments. Save these people.
Time is short, Commander. Orders are required.>1 Prepare deployments. Save these people.>2 Order defensive formation until you can make a jump.>3 Blind jump. Although dangerous, it is almost instant.
righto, going to be leaving soon, but I should be back within a couple of hours.Try not to fuck this up, guys.
>>25895568That tears it then. We HAVE to save them, even if only just the few we can evacI'm not dilusional, no, I don't know if we can feesibly stop the Dominion now...but we have to do something. We are not going to just take our resources and runOtherwise, what was gathering all that stuff for? For greed?No. I think Delta would want something better then that. I know our crew sure does.Still voting on helping them somehow. Ask XO about his plans.
>>25895616But that's our specialty.
>>25895568I know We're going to regret this but hell.Get a message out to the screaming eagles that they can Rearm and repair in our hangars. Civilian and military evac ships are free to come too, We have plenty of room to spare.If Murica has any ships they can regroup around us for the counter attack.((this feels So much like this mission http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Gi0pg-Ie4C8))
>>25895619Agreed. That's why we take some government officials (to gain legitimacy) and focus on building up a resistance movement to eventually retake the planet. We will lose today, it's about planning for the future.
>>25895504There's a difference between making retarded decisions that will get us killed while expecting a deus ex machina and "trusting your heart"
>>25895658You're right, there is.I think this is trusting your heart. Because we're doing what's right, by our crew, and by ourselves and by the people of Muric.Do you think being selfish is trusting your heart?
>>25895611Voting ends at 17:33. Tallying votes...
We're a flagship.Call their spacecraft to us. We have batteries to reinforce them.Prepare our Valkyrie for a violent boarding-sabotage mission.>AeronWait a bit before making the call
>>25895715Helping the local defenders out a bit while we perform a limited evacuation is a reasonable course of action.Actually trying to harm this Dominion fleet (especially by boarding actions) is not. We should harass them and deflect their attention from the locals, nothing more.
>>25895792>inb4 this is the desperate situation the adjutant mentioned when we fire the cruiser's Yamto cannon.
>>258957924 Behemoth class battleships, hundreds of Viking signatures, and who KNOWS what's on the D.S.S REDACTED. They probably have a new super weapon, or worse knowing the Dominion. They loved testing out their latest crazy bullshit weapons on rebels, from what I rememberSo I have to agree. While it'd be awesome if our batteries could take down a ship or two to help...I really don't think we'll be able to take them on. If I'm not mistaken, Behemoth is either one size larger or smaller then our Gorgon.It's times like these I wish we had the Yamoto cannon online...
>>25895826Unless the presents the opportunity where we can take all of them with one shot, I don't think so.
>>25895826Is our Yamato even Online?Also, holy crap a yamato cannon shot of a ship our size o.O
>>25895792>>25895826Or they fire theirs. Do we have it operational?I wanted to cripple one BC by blowing a hole and leaving a payload. But if one Yamato can do it, all the better.
>>25895845It's online but no one has a clue how it works.Except perhaps Supah-Sayain Mac. Guys, I think I found our Deus Ex Machina.
>Registering Consensus.>1 Prepare deployments. Save these people.>"What's the plan, XO?"You step down to the tactical overlay, as the Murric defense force starts to get pushed back to New Alamo. >"Sir. We move the Daluke underneath the enemy fleet. They'll be forced to use weaker ATS laser batteries on us. and they can't bring nuclear ordinance on the planet, or us, at that range. We have our repair crews house Screaming Eagles and keep them in the fight."The XO moves the graphic representation of the Daluke directly under the 3 Battlecruisers roughly half it's size. You can still hear tactical information being shouted across your bridge as your crew struggles to organize a defense.>"From there, we launch strike boarding teams. We have Three Dropships, so we can land teams on three of them. I recommend the three where we have information on the IFF's, our boarding parties know what they can expect.">"Purple Squadron will cover our transports, then move to protect New Alamo. We'll need them to remain online and keep their firing solutions going if we expect any civilians to make it offworld, or if we're really lucky, hold the planet long enough for the Dominion to pull out."A particularly loud yell before radio silence momentarily grabs your attention, before you turn it back to the XO.>"What about the Ghost Battlecruiser?">"We don't have any dropships, sir. It's still going to take out a lot of people but I don't know what we can do about that.">"We don't have dropships... But we have drop pods.">"That's more or less suicide, sir. Assuming they don't shoot the pods down, there's no way off the ship if a team does take thee bridge.">"Adjutant, what're the chances of a pod making it on that ship if we launch all available pods in front of it?">"62%, Delta Phoenix.">"I've taken worse odds."This is the best chance you have to save lives. Maybe even save this planet and those who depend on it.>Loading...
>>25895854>>25895845Yamato cannon is fully operational.Except no one knows how to us-Yeah, we have a super-engineer that knows everything on board...Give that man the cannon controls.
>>25895883Begin discussion of strategy.Note: Reduced time available.>Confirm XO's deployments. >Confirm XO's deployments, head to drop pods and set your own target for D.S.S. [Redacted].>Focus on fleet engagements. Do not put crew at risk. Extreme chance of planet falling to Dominion and massive casualties.
>>25895913Could the Screaming Eagles run interference/distract the REDACTED battlecruiser while we drop pod inside?
>>25895953It will increase the likelihood of Drop Pods landing, but reduce New Alamo's defense force.
>>25895913Only boarding teams, only exlposives payloads. Go in, wire the docking bays, go out.Our Valkyrie can ignore this and go straight for craw space or something more sensible.No drop pods. Yamato the [REDACTED]
>>25895913Are there any methods of increasing the odds of a drop pot hitting the D.S.S. Redacted? Something like having one of our other ships fly interference or pull a Mia and provide course correction with another ship?How long would it take to add some more thrusters to it to make it slightly more accurate?
>>25895993Using Purple squadron to improve Drop Pod success rates will put our other transports and New Alamo at increased risk.We do not have time for any changes to engineering.
>>25895913Can Mac give us a shot with the Yamato? Because if so that ought to solve a lot of issues.
>>25895913Redirect Non-critical power to our shields. That should make even the inefficient terran space shields work a little longer.Focus all available fire of the Daluke on the [REDACTED] while our dropships go for the other battlecruisers. no need to risk friendly fire.
>>25895913Behemoth BC's have a crew complement of 4 to 7 /thousand/, is our XO insane?! There is no way one dropship of infantry is taking over one of these ships, let alone three. If we're prepared to lose all of these men, the confusion might be enough for The Daluke to cripple one BC, while we infiltrate the Ghost one (which is a huge unknown).We should focus on ranged fire and rearming the locals. The planet is lost, we can only hold these ships off for a while longer while an evacuation is being conducted.
>>25895883>The XO moves the graphic representation of the Daluke directly under the 3 Battlecruisers roughly half it's size. You can still hear tactical information being shouted across your bridge as your crew struggles to organize a defense.How LARGE is the super secret ship?
>>25895913Get the Hercules to focus on evacuation with banshee support, and focus on a single battlecruiser at a time, it will take longer but it will be safer for our teams.for dealing with the BCs do this >>25895981 but only fire the Cannon it Mac knows what hes doing, if the ship gets put our of commission we are dead in the water.
>>25896017>"Adjutant, get Mac on comms.">"Sir. What can I help you with?">"Can you fire our Yamato cannon, Mac?">"From what I've been able to tell sir, it's missing targeting systems. I took a look at them but getting a lock is almost impossible. We'd have to eyeball it. Even then there's a good chance those magnetic stabilizers won't hold.">"How good?">"Fifty-fifty, sir?"
>>25895980Are bio/chemical weapons part of standard battlecruiser payload?I'm paranoid about the REDACTED because it might drop a 7 day bio-weapon (Virus that kills everything then dies in 7 days) or something like that.I say we take a couple Eagles to distract the REDACTED while we pod in>>25895981Like I said here >>25895886 We don't know how to use it. Our new engineer might, but that's not likely.
>>25896037We just blow their Docking Bays. Their fleet have no repair, resupply or refuge.They are half our size, so 4k or less crew..We SHOULD just blow the [REDACTED] at least, seems the most important.
>>25896035We do not have shields, Delta Phoenix.>>25896037Dropship deployments will focus the Bridge to disrupt operations.>>25896044Sensors indicate it is a Behemoth-class vessel.
>>25896061I am detecting only Nuclear payloads at this time.The D.S.S. [REDACTED] is shielded against our scans.
>>25896057So a fifty-fifty of blowing up ourselves and a thirty-seventy of actually hitting anything.I'd rather now,
>>25896112We have a 100% chance to hit at proposed engagement ranges. However if we are crippled at that range we will suffer serious damage.
>>25896080Wiki says 4-7, and that's still a lot of people. Blowing their docking bays doesn't stop them from just nuking the planet into oblivion. I agree, if the consensus is to actually engage this fleet properly, we should focus 100% of our efforts on the [REDACTED] ship and hope the Admiral is there or something else equally important we can use as a bartering chip.
>>25896037Nah, just send Mia and Henderson on over. They've got this.I'm only half joking.
>>25895913I have faith in are XO
>>25896112Nah, only the Yamato will blow itself. Recovering it will be a downright bitch. Probably will want to cut a deal with BMC or the shipyard planet for that.
>>25896098AND it's shielded against scans. All my money on there being some sort of strategic weapon on that ship or some other high-risk experiment.
We are out of time, Commander.>1 Confirm XO's deployments. >2 Confirm XO's deployments, head to drop pods and set your own target for D.S.S. [Redacted].>3 Focus on fleet engagements.

Registering divided consensus: 1, 2.Rolling to resolve.2.Registering Consensus: B. >"Confirm those deployments and prep the drop plots for insertion, XO.">"Sir."You make for the drop pod deployment bay. Warnings sound throughout the ship, tactical alerts to the crew, Marines shuffle past the hallways, crew carrying tools or boxes of equipment run past you. You step inside the drop pod and lock yourself in. You feel occasional shakes and the distant sounds of explosions as your ship comes under fire.>Loading Mission Parameters 1: Purple Squadron. Leader: Mia Rodriguez.
>>25896358Is it possible to use the Psionic Radar on the D.S.S. [REDACTED] before we deploy, just to get an idea of what we're up against?
>>25896410we do not have it yet
>>25896410You did not select Psionic Radar for training, Delta Phoenix.
>>25896410we don't actually have psionic radar yet. We chose reflexes remember?
>>25896410Everyone wanted to Shadowrun with wired reflexes, so we don't have Psidar
>>25896425Can the Daluke scan the mystery battlecruiser?
>>25896425Right, I forgot to ask this: We can use basic Zealot blades in melee right? The basic form of these blades are projected from the fist anyway.
You sit on the Ammunition crate, probably Gemini missiles. You like to watch the knuckle-draggers repair your ship. It gives you someone to yell at if you notice any new scratches or dings. The jump just finished to Murric. You're looking forward to some more shore leave when you hear an alert siren.>"This is the XO! Set condition one throughout the fleet. Launch all alert fighters. Boarding teams to defense positions. This is not a drill! This. Is not. A drill."That's not good. >"Move out, get me unhooked, I need to be in the air!"The other mercenary pilots make for their ships as well. You lift off into the darkness of space and wing around. You can see the fight before your sensors are online to pick it up. Dozens of squadrons, three or four battlecruisers. There's no fuckin' way...>"Sound off, ladies.">"Purple one, standing by.">"Purple two, standing by.">"Purple three, standing by.">"Are we really going for this engagement?">"We're just holding position right now, Apollo."You watch the sensors for a few minute, hoping it stays that way. You've pulled off a miracle or two in your time, but this... This is different.>"Dolphin 13 this is Daluke actual. Your orders are to cover for insertion teams to Bandit Actual three through one, over.">"Confirmed, Daluke actual. Moving to defend."The Hercules soars out, followed by the two dropships.>"Purple squadron on my six. Keep close and zero chatter."You fall in formation in front of the drop-ships. >Flying...
>>25896471Nope, it's shielded from scans.
>>25896471You are asking me if you can use Daluke's scans, because Psionic Radar did not work, because the Daluke's scans did not work.You are unable to do that at this time, Delta Phoenix.
>>25896483Apollo now I am thinking of Mia as the female Starbuck
>>25896506>female Starbuck((You seem to be confused as to Kara Thrace's gender, sir.))
>>25896506She is and our XO is Saul
>>25896531Starbuck was male in the original series actually.
>>25896483As you approach the first battlecruiser you detect a squad of vikings incoming. Only one squad. They're mostly engaged with the Murricans you bet.What's your plan, Mia? What's your plan?
>>25896499>>25896490Sorry, didn't notice that. Please continue
>>25896546((Oh yeah. Bigger fan of new series, myself.))
>>25896358>>Loading Mission Parameters 1: Purple Squadron. Leader: Mia Rodriguez.Pastebin doesn't really say who are our Heroes and units for each squad.((Could we get a more horizontal pastebin. One row for infantry, one for mechanized. Another two rows for wounded or in-repair.))
>>25896506Because she is...
>>25896561I loved both
>>25896561Same here, just so happened to watch a couple episodes on TV a while ago.
>>25896562((Wraith ("Dolphin 13", Pilot: Mia Rodriguez)Wraith (Purple 1, Pilot: Chase "Apollo" Simpson)Wraith (Purple 2, Pilot: Nat "Athena" Coleman)Wraith (Purple 3, Pilot: Duane "Hades" Allen)Right in the pastebin. Hero units aren't listed because they're just normal units with higher ranks or more kills to the Adjutant.))
>>25896549How many Vikings are in the squad? and also remind me do any of our ship apart from the banshee have stealth?
>>25896549((Reminder, none of your hero units have an adjutant. You don't get suggestions.Think of something before you run out of time and they shoot you down.))
>>25896588That reminds me, you have the Goliaths listed as only three.Again.
>>25896593You look at your scanner. 5 Vikings in the squad.
>>25896549move in to support, hit them from the rear.
>>25896599Form up on my wing. Ambush them from above.
>>25896549I'm pretty sure that sadly our Wraiths don't have stealth but if they do turn them on.Our job is to get the Dropships to the enemy Battlecruiser, but in a Wraith vs. Viking fight we probably won't win straight up.Are there any environmental features in the area? Are there any other allies in the area that can distract this bunch of Vikings and let us come in from behind and blow their ass off? How many Vikings are there?
>>25896606((Because you really didn't need 5 for any situation ever so I keep forgetting.))
>>25896549Try and slip past, be prepared to lock on anything that so much looks at the transports
>>25896549Split formation, have Mia take point and engage the lead Viking while the wingmen mop up behind her.
>>25896620They're headed right for you, it's pretty clear they'll go for the transports if you let them.
>>25896609Our projectiles are almost as good as thiers. Focus fire, they move fast but they blow in pieces faster.
>>25896613I think that this squad of vikings is not engaged with any other enemies, it's just that they only have one squad to throw at us because the Murricans are keeping the others distracted.So it's 4 Wraiths against 5 Vikings, not the best odds.
>>25896616No asteroids, and you're still a ways out from any orbital stations around Murric. It's all open space, baby.
>>25896549Full thrusters, cloak up, terminate with extreme prejudice.
>>25896647Let them pass, then hit them from the rear as they move to engage the transports. Wraiths have superior mobility and speed over Vikings anyway.
>>25896668Really fuckin' wish you had cloak right about now...
>>25896647Let the missiles soar towards them.
>>25896622Bad idea, if you read the lore vikings are basically Wraiths 5.0, aim for engines if possible to immobilize them, keep the Hercules out of range as that is the only ship that can't return fire.
>>25896549Vikings have the range advantage but Wraiths are more nimble. So get in close and move in between them. Wraiths also pack a bigger punch so we are better dogfighters right now.
Alright, getting down to the wire. What's it going to be?>1 Use transports as bait. Disengage and hit vikings from behind with superior mobility.>2 Full thrusters. Focus fire. Scratch one Viking squad.
>>25896698Yeah, vikings are wraith 5.0 because they turn into walkers. Ain't got shit on wraith superiority, though.
>>25896672But the Vikings are more heavily armed and armored, which counts for a lot in a head on encounter like this.
>>25896658shit. Well, wraiths are more manoeuvrable I think. Get in close quarters and stay there. If possible try to get the enemy positioned as such so they could hit each other.
>>25896703Can we do >2then >1 on the ones that are left after an initial pass?
>>25896672I concur. While this risks the dropship, it will allow our wraits to get the upper hand
>>25895369>New AlamoMan, that's not the most encouraging of names.
>>25896710they dump lots long range air to air missiles like its nobodies business, and they're cheap as shit.Theyre fkying marauders.
>>25896773I can't wait to get some Vikings of our own.
You don't have to sweat this. Easy money on the wraiths.>"Purple squadron, move to engage."You break off from the transports and flash ahead at full speed. The vikings break formation when they realize you're engaging them and try to make a break for the transports.>"Go for the engines, protect drop teams!"You take out one viking with and switch to the next before the missiles even hit. You fly overhead, kill thrusters, and turn around to face him. A single burst laser takes out the pilot and sends the viking careening into the depths of space.>"Scratch two!">"Purple three, I've got a bandit on my tail.">Break from formation, assist Purple 3.>I'm here to shoot vikings. Henderson's on those transports, can't put them at risk.
>>25896789>Break from formation, assist Purple 3.gotta keep are wing alive
>>25896789We got two, one is on 3's tail and the other two must be busy with the other two.Move to assist!
>>25896789>Break from formation, assist Purple 3.
>>25896789There are 3 vikings left. 2 can be targeting the transports right now. Let our wingmen handle those and bail out Purple Three.
>>25896789Okay, it's down to 4 Wraiths and 3 Vikings, we'll assist Purple 3 taking out that one, Purple 1 and 2 go after the two remaining Vikings that are going after the Transports. After taking out the Viking on 3 both us and 3 go to help 1 and 2 mop up if they need any help..
>>25896810Let me clarify that.We killed 2 out of 5.Third is on 3's six.And the two other vikings are probably engaged with our remaining two wraiths.
>>25896789Keep an eye on the other bandits but move to assist.
>>25896773Actually, though their missiles are good, they are slow in maneuvers. It comes with being a flying Marauder. Also, either their pilot or the shit breaks something kinda often.
>>25896848We have them out maneuvered, yeah. I think we can stand to save Purple 3 without much trouble and catch up with the other Vikings.
You hope the rest of your squad can take out the other two Vikings in time, and move to Purple 3's tail. >"He's fast! Too fuckin' fast!">"Keep it together, Purple 3."Your man breaks hard straight up, the viking is unable to follow. It gives you the perfect opportunity and you blow him to hell before flying through the explosion.>"Purple 1, scratch one.">"Purple 2, scratch one.">"This is Black Earl, we're moving into range of Bandit Actuals. Thanks for the assist, purple Squadron.">"Don't mention it. Purple squad, move to fallback position Beta. Engage those vikings.">"You got it, sir!">Loading Mission Parameter 2, Sergeant Henderson...
>>25896848It's kind of a weird design approach, air superiority slugging matches. Guess it works if you have enough to launch more missiles than space has room for.
>>25896924Whew, good...that went well.Now for the explosive part of the mission...
>>25896952It's kinda why whey are meant to be capital ship destroyers, you only have to be evasive to avoid the return fire then, also a bonus with the range.
... I bet this is where we lose Henderson.
>>25897009you had to say you just went full retard
>>25897009NO RED SHHH DON'T SAY THESE THINGS
You stand in the Hercules' cargo hold. The other 4 Goliath operators stand in a circle around the SCV-built table the crew collectively refers to as 'lumpy'. You love that goddamn table.>"Alright boys, listen up. Our mission is to engage the battlecruiser Teron. It's at the center of the formation so the XO things it's the flagship - either it or the fuckin' Ghost ship at the back and you can be thankful that one ain't our job."You point out at the location on the ship's spine one the holo-briefing that turns on at the middle of the table.>"Now, our Hercules is too big to attempt dockin' procedures of the delicate variety, so we're gonna be offloadin' on the thing's fuckin' hull, right at the low point so the batteries don't shoot our Hercules."You trace your finger down the spine to the ship's hammer head.>"From there we walk over the hull, take out whatever batteries we so decisively can, and make for the bridge. From there, we shoot them sunsabitches so full of hellfire missiles and lead they will write songs about Henderson's Hardasses.">"Hoorah, sir!">"Semper Tarsonis!">"That's the spirit. Suit up, we're droppin' soon!">Suiting up...
>>25897009He will be fiiinnnneeee...Maybe.
>>25897024... oh this is going to be good.
>>25897024God I love Henderson.I hope he'll be alright.
>>25897009Then rebuild him using Mac and our resoc tanks. Hender-sson will have as much chutzpah and extra wired reflexes.
>>25897024...You're planning to storm the place with Goliaths?Henderson you magnificent sonnuvabitch.
>>25897024>Firing Hellfire Missiles inside a shipIs this going to end like Black Hawk Down, with explosive duds inside things because the fuse doesn't activate without enough force?
Holy shit.I just realised we'll be essentially genderbent SPACE! Lafayette if we manage to pull this off.
>>25897088It's a solid plan, can't exactly walk them through the corridors. Also, the enemy can't fire on them effectively with big guns due to them being on their ship, they can take out any smaller enemy fighters that come in to attack them with their surface-to-air missiles, and blow up important stuff on the way with their autocannons.
>>25897145To be honest, I expected an infantry boarding.
>>25897131Could you please explain, I don't want to get a headache for trying to read wikipedia at 2AM.
>>25897169We didn't buy the heavy goliaths for no reason I supposeThis isn't EXACTLY like the game thankfully, since I assume marines would actually have a harder time hurting a Goliath then other marines.
You sit in the cockpit of your Goliath, staring at that entrance. Any second now it's gonna open. Aaaannnyyy seeeecccoonnnddd... >"Chewy, dodge that fire!">"Nuurraaaahhh!">"Straight down the trench. Damnit, we've lost targeting computers. Going to have to land it by eyeball."You wish your pilots had a brief spark of competence. Good boys, but none too bright. The ship shakes as you begin to take fire from the battleship's batteries. Your gut rises in your stomach as the transport comes to a stop. The landing ramp and drops.>"Go, go, go!"The goliath walker squad walks out and starts blasting the visible batteries with missiles, they have no way of shooting back. It almost brings a tear to your eye.But there's no time for gettin' all sentimental like. You order your crew to continue on the back of the battlecruiser's hull, shooting as you move. >"Sarge, I've got incoming air. They're coming straight for us.">"Aww hell. You get ready to dance, boys. It's showtime."What's the plan, Henderson, old buddy?
>>25897175((Lafayette is a badass flamboyant gay badass in True blood. DP is a badass Lesbian in space, ist he connection. I think?))
Need some details. Though honestly I say concentrate fire, the fewer there are to fire back the less damage we take overall. Its still a ways to go before the bridge.
>>25897191bust a hole in the hull now and go in?
>>25897191spread out and open fire with are AA
>>25897191Goliaths have better anti air weapons then ground weapons, I thinkHm... but if it's a large force that could mean troubleGet into formation so they can't bomb the hell outta us and give them a beautiful fireworks show in their face.Keep moving so they can't surround, and whenever there is a lull in the action, open fire on the batteries again- they're not here just to shoot down air after all.
>>25897191Keep moving while returning fire, use the laser batteries as cover whenever possible.
>>25897221Fighting your way through marines and crew instead of Combat walkers also sounds like a pretty good fight. Plus there's just somethin' beautiful about people floatin' off into space.
>>25897175Look up Gilbert du Motier, he was a French aristocrat and military officer during the American Revolutionary War and was a key part of French support of the Americans and did a lot to help the Americans.
>>25897024>You love that goddamn table.>Henderson's HardassesBeautiful>"Semper Tarsonis!"Always...Tarsonis? Sure.
>>25897229>"How many we got, son?">"Six vikings, it looks like.">"Only six!? I am -insulted-."
>>25897248Only six? Okay, find some place to take cover and block the Line of Sight of the Vikings so to hit us on a pass they have to turn around, and then blow the hell out of them with missiles as they zip past us and our buddies.
>>25897198The connection is that Layafette is one of the heroes of the American Revolution, notably a foreigner. Lafayette (and the French in general) contributed a lot in ensuring American victory during the rebellion.And we need to get Mark and Chewy a goddamn Valkyrie.
>>25897198>>25897242((That feel when you know popular culture but shit about history.USA! USA! USA!))
>>25897248HA Only six? We got this guysOpen fire full force with the Goliath anti air missiles, they'll be blown right outta the sky.
>>25897191Fire SAMs and try to gattling the cockpit.
>>25897191Without drop ship, there's is no escape route.We can't pilot a hostile BC by balls alone. Engage.
>>25897248Six? Thats nothing!Spread far enough apart so we don't suffer collatoral damage and fire. Or we could keep moving and have their missiles do our work.
I would believe first plan of action would be to stick a cigar in Henderson's mouth.
>>25897279>Can't pilot a BC by balls aloneDo you even Henderson?
Vikings can change to walker form so our best bet is to kil as many as possible before they land.Concentrate fire to remove as many as possible.Once they do land however use the battleship terrain for cover. Their weapons our a bit heavier then the goliaths if I remember right.
>>25897293I certainly Henderson. BC XO isn't in his jacket.Mind you, he could kill a chunk of the fighting crew. But the whole 4k? Nope. Henderson ran when he had to down at Umoja.
>>25897298That's true, if they do land we should get moving- Goliath are pretty fast and can out pace a Viking WalkerIf they DO change form in range though, blast the fuck outta them. That will probably kill the pilots in and of itself.
>>25897309Henderson's a brave son of a bitch, but he's not stupid. Well...not THAT stupid. Mostly crazy if anything.Point is, he won't throw the crew's life away for nothing. That's not like him.
You bring a cigar up to your mouth. This is serious. Really serious, actually. You decide to make it a Tyrador cigar as this is a special occasion.>"C'mon boys, don't be shy! Those viking boys look like they need a couple missiles!"Your men open fire, blowing a couple vikings off-course and into the battlecruiser's hull. Several of them land and begin autocannon fire. You return fire and advance. Like bullets are going to stop you.Several rounds ding off your armor as you mow down the vikings. Another two go down. One attempts to flee on foot and another shifts to flight form.>"Aww, ladies, don't be like that!"You fire missiles at one, then auto-cannon down another.>"Move forward ladies, we gotta make it to that bridge before-"You attempt to walk forward. The walker's leg gives out and it slams face down. They shot out your leg.>"Well, shit."Quite the pickle you're in now, Henderson. What's plan B?
>>25897191Get in that trench, let them pass and shoot the shit out of them when they're abovet us.
>>25897367Is his CMC equipped right now? I think they double as a space suit.
>>25897367Well shit, if we can get the Goliath upright and propped in a good firing position do so, just keep on fucking with any incoming Vikings and other air support, blow up anything that we can with our autocannons while the rest of our dudes advance towards the bridge.
>>25897412its either that or go on foot, pity we didn't bring a scv with us.
>>25897367Shift Goliaths. If possible, our surplus pilot (drop or goliath) commanders a BC Battery to cover our ass.We're not letting our sons alone to crage in.
>>25897405Of course you have your CMC on underneath, you ain't no idiot.
>>25897367How bad is the damage to the leg? I don't think we can bring in an SCV or the Nomad to repair us.
>>25897432we should ride on one of are boys goliath if that will not end in loss of hearing
>>25897450Well sendin' over the Nomad would take half a day, and who brings SCVs on an assault mission? That's just stupid.Also, you should probably remember to bring SCVs on assault missions from now on.
>>25897367Attempt emergency repairsIts the least you could do. You ain't gonna do squat assaulting a battlecruisers bridge with just your CMC.If damage is too great make it so you can somehow rotate the goliath main body so you can aim and cover your team from fighters as they go for the bridge
>>25897456You use a radio, how would riding on top of a Goliath result in a loss of hearing?Quit bein' stupid and think, Henderson.
>>25897367Well we aren't going to be able to leave with this baby. How hard would it be to set the Goliath to explode all of the Hellfire Missiles, or to set it on autopilot to shoot all of the missiles at something vaguely important looking.
>>25897472Aim's gonna be shit without legs, ain't even gonna work.
>>25897456We're in space dumbass.
>>25897476well lets go ride a goliath then. We can use our sniper rifle.
>>25897482You could rig it to explode, easily.No idea what good that would do you, but a big explosion is always good for Morale!
>>25897489I forgot about the lack of sound in space I blame movies
>>25897367You know what? Fuck it, borrow one of the boys' Goliaths and continue on.
>>25897490Sniper rifle? Yeah, if we're suddenly thinkin' we're gonna be a girl like Delta Phoenix.You've got two C-14's and a bandolier of grenades and D-8 charges and you want to use a sniper rifle.
>>25897512Grab your D-8 charges, walk up to the bridge windows and paste in on them, then wave, get out of the way and blow them up.
>>25897504>>25897468>>25897428Henderson, Do Everything (With Your Cigar)
Can we make a hole down into the cruiser? Like do we have any explosive ordnance like C-18's or just the goliath missiles?I say we get some explosive. Find a weak point where the armor is the thinnest like at the base of a turret. Blow it to kingdom come. Jump into the hole with extra goliath missile warheads strapped onto a bandolier with a detonator. Board the ship, try and use our IFF as Dominion boys and casually walk to the bridge. Leave the jerry rigged bomb. Get back to any openings and get out and blow it all to hell and wait to be picked up
You eject the Goliath's cockpit and step out into the trench. You have a C-14 in either hand, more explosives than you could possibly need strapped to your chest, and most importantly, a Tyrador cigar. >"Private young, Kneel down here, I need a lift!"You're a little torn. Do you ride the Goliath, or have Young hoof it back to the ship?
>>25897529We're not even anywhere near the bridge, and as badass as Henderson is, he isn't going to survive out here for long.Borrow a Goliath and continue on.
>>25897551Ride it.We're not going to be of much use on foot.
>>25897551well, when you put it that way, I guess we could just ride along...
>>25897551I have a feeling if we send Young alone hes not going to make it. Ride the Goliath.
>>25897551Ride it sonWe become the knights of Murric with our trusty stead
>>25897563He's in a fucking GOLIATH.Henderson is in a marine suit.A Goliath can take much more punishment then a marine can.
>>25897551Perks of having rank = time for Young to hoof it!
>>25897551Those Goliaths have missiles, even with the charges Henderson is pretty useless on foot.Also, good thing we bought more Goliaths.
You know Young is as good as dead if you let him walk back, and it's not like he's a better Goliath pilot than you are. But you are -definitely- a better marine than he is.
>>25897557Whoops.Sorry, have Young go back on foot. We're taking this Goliath.
>>25897577that means sending Young back alone to the ship, sans goliath while we use his goliath.
>>25897591Risk is one thing, but suicide is another.Goddammit, guess we're going riding.
>>25897551Let's ride the goliath. Give Young a cigar, he'll need it.
>>25897628You know we could take it and have Young ride on the Goliath, right guys?
God, we have explosives on us, and we're going to ride a Goliath in combat? That sounds crazy.Hoof it back to the ship.Maybe use our explosives on something first, whatever.Some questions:>Are the Vikings dead or gone?>Have we destroyed enough cannons on the battlecruiser yet? **How much damage have we dealt**?>... We're using all available Goliaths, right? >We don't have a spare back in the ship or something unfortunately? Because its not like you would have kept a Goliath BEHIND if you were going on an assault mission like this...>>25897617Or it means we both go back to the ship.
>>25897658>God, we have explosives on us, and we're going to ride a Goliath in combat? That sounds crazy.If it's even as remotely as stable as C4, it'll be an asspain to detonate. Not much risk on that front.
>>25897654...I never considered that to be honest.
>>25897658So not only would you risk killing Young and Henderson by sending them off alone but you'd risk the mission by denying them Young's Goliath?
You step up onto the Goliath's head, your CMC's magnetized boots engage. It'll take a lot to knock you off.>"Uh...Sir?">"Onwards, my Glorious steed! We ride into battle!"After a few seconds of disbelief, your Goliath squad moves forward down the trench, taking out any turret that comes into their range. The roat of guns is your lullaby as you open small-arms fire on any viking that flies overhead. One will occasionally land and take autocannon fire before he can even take a shot off. You exit the trench's cover, cannons abound, shooting at wraiths firing at the battleship.>"Have you ever seen anything so beautiful, Goliaths?">"No sir."Battlecruiser turret fire directs itself at you. Hardass 4 goes down in a huge explosion.>"Move forward for the bridge! Full speed, do not engage!"Your Goliaths sprint to the edge of the battlecruiser. Stray battlecruiser and viking fire blasts all around you. Goliath 2 goes down. Then 4. It's just you and private Young.As you reach the corner between the face and top of the battlecruiser something hits Young from behind. You fly off into space, dozens of feet from the battlecruiser and slowly drifting away. You have to think fast...
>>25897711Use our C14s' recoil to direct ourselves back to the ship.
>>25897711FIRE OUR GUN ON THE OPPOSITE DIRECTION THRUST TOWARDS THE BATTLECRUSIER
>>25897711Aw hell that didn't go well at all.Engage emergency thrusters. I think we have them anyway.
Oh shit we lost our squad.....Can we magnetize back onto the ship?
>>25897744Emergency thrusters? Ain't no marines that got 'emergency thrusters'.
>>25897711We have explosives and guns...Gun is probably the safer option, the force of the blast would send us backwards, won't it?
>>25897752coulda sworn they did, oh well. >>25897743this then>>25897729cause this is just stupid.
>>25897729Newton's Third Law baby.
>>25897729Um... I don't think we can survive that. Those are fucking explosives man.>>25897711Do we have anything like a grappling hook?Do we have something that can provide thrust or propulsion -- maaaybe our own air supply if its sufficiently pressurized?Otherwise, well, shooting our gun to provide boost is one thing.Another thing we can do, is use our radio and ask for a pick-up from the ship that dropped us off.
>>25897761The C14s ARE our guns.
>>25897761>>25897765The C14s are our fucking guns idiots.You're thinking of the D-8s.
>>25897729May as well try this. C14's are supposed to have stupid recoil.
>>25897711Call our Dropship, or Mia.Fire our guns.
>>25897778It sounds a lot like C4 to be fair.
>>25897778Oh... I read that as C-4. My bad!
... yes I am stupid for getting c4 and our guns mixed up. Bleh.
>>25897752then what do you call those tings on the back of your suit?
>>25897806Pretty sure those are fusion engines that power the power armorJust a guess.
>>25897729>>25897743>>25897749You rotate yourself around, locate the bridge, and start shooting behind yourself. You start picking up speed, and more speed, and more speed, and... Too fast! Too fast! Waaaay too fast! You shoot in the opposite direction and blow open the glass of the battlecruiser's bridge, but it's not enough to slow you down, especially as the bridge is now venting atmosphere.You crash in, past the unsuited crew who are being vented to space. You rush past the length of the bridge and shoot through an open door. Your feet catch the floor and you more-or-less skid to a halt. With quick thinking you charge the bandolier of explosive grenades and D8 charges and throw it through the door. You flip off the few crew in CMC's as they charge towards you and seal the door.You run towards the ass-end of the ship. A large explosion rocks everything and you stumble momentarily.Now, armed with 2 Gauss rifles, no explosives, and your cigar, you must escape the battlecruiser.What's the plan, Henderson, you magnificent bastard you?
>>25897806Probably fucking exhaust ports?
>>25897806((Reactor exhaust ports I think.))
>>25897829that would still provide some thrust
>>25897840Which would be sluggish as best.The guns were far more effective.
>>25897840Not enough, considerin' you just got your ass propelled off a battlecruiser by a fuckin' goliath explodin'.Sometimes I worry that Mama was right when she called me stupid.
>>25897820Can we take control of the ship?
>>25897820Alright no way are we going to last long if they get their bearings. Lets find the nearest docking bay. Maybe there is a shuttle or something.
>>25897820Starting gunning (heh) away from the battlecruiser, arrange a pickup.
>>25897820commandeer a vessel, like a drop ship or something
>>25897852just blew up the bridge son. No one is gonna control this once for long.
>>25897820I'm assuming we need a ship to make it back.Is there any way to disable systems from there and call for pickup? If not we get to go plundering.
>>25897852You just blew the bridge to fuckin' hell.You don't know a single goddamn thing about pilotin' a battlecruiser.There are 4,000 angry-as-hell Dominion on this boys who want to shoot you out the nearest airlock.No Henderson. You cannot take the goddamn ship.
>>25897820Out through the hull breach and run along the hull.ALTERNATIVELY!Hijack a transport.
>>25897820Hot fucking damn Henderson, if you survive this, I demand we construct a commemorative iron balls trophy for youCall for pick up as you run. No waiting around, hot pick up from whoever's available. Be sure to keep the skies clear.
>>25897820Transponder to our boys.A pincer attack is something they talked about in them documentaries, right? I have two guns, they have six, that's like FOUR pincers.
>>25897862Seconded, good God guys, the simple option is best.
>>25897870Unless you think you got enough ammo to steer back to Daluke using only bullets, a ship sounds like a good idea. >>25897862Pickup like that in a battlecruiser hot zone's gonna put you AND your ship at risk.
>>25897857We're outside the ship ain't we?
>>25897863this seems like one of the few options we have
>>25897893Ain't no guns left, Henderson.Didn't much care for those boys anyhow.
>>25897895Which is why propel ourselves away.Unless we're out of ammo.
>>25897899You blew up the bridge and zipped through it, your C-14's propelled you too quickly, you're inside the ship.
>>25897874So we can't steal a wraith or a viking or something to get out?
>>25897820Keep on moving, don't give them a chance to close in on our location, shoot everything in our way, either get to the Hercules or to the hanger and hijack something.
>>25897904Daluke's miles out. Assumin' you don't get picked up by the Dominion that outnumber you like a thousand-to-one, sure, you can try it.
>>25897914never said then in fact that is what we should do
>>25897911Ah right right, sorry reading fast in all this excitmentRight then going with Red's plan >>25897857
>>25897914We can, it's just a matter of fighting through several hundred people to do so.
>>25897914NOT A VIKING!
>>25897914If you want to fight your way to the docking bay you can pretend you know how to Pilot a dropship. Not like it's tryin' to pilot a viking!
>>25897911>>25897903Is the Jump console here? That red lever that signals JUMP?
Ya, our only real options is to hijack a ship or hoof it to the Hercules.
>>25897921I was thinking the dropship to be honest.Bugger it then, time to borrow ourselves a ship.
>>25897914WE CAN NOT PILOT A VIKINGPLEASE NO
>>25897933Now even YOU know that's a bad idea.
>>25897857This and hey, if it comes down to it we shoot a window jump out and have someone pick us up there while we admire our work.
How about this. Is the breach still open?I say we do this.Steal a uniform from one of the highest ranking crew members. Find a vent or any exits. If not Lay low and wait for crew members to come in and clear the place. Pretend to be critically injured on the face. Get sent to medbay but be sure to have a pistol on you. When we're waiting on medbay (probably waiting because entire medbay is full) Sneak out get sneak around the ship. Get to the docking area. Find drop pods and get in and drop out. If not use an escape pod to escape the ship. If not possible steal a aircraft (preferably a easy to drive craft) and escape. IF None of this is possible get out through the breach again and go back where you've came from
>>25897971The ship is....kinda blowing upAlso Henderson isn't the stealthy typeLike at all.So...no?
>>25897971we're not DP anon.
So we can either go hull or go BC?>>25897954Do THEY know?>Implying I can hold a BC hostage through terror tactics
>>25897820Find the assault pods. This things's gotta have assault pods. We'll assault our way OFF this gorramn floating shitcan. My cigar and I.
Alarms are sounding. You think you hear Dominion boys.Time to man up.>1 Fight your way to the Docking bays. Do some damage for good measure and hijack a dropship.>2 Vent yourself into space and enjoy a nice break while the Hercules picks you up. Hopefully.>3 Fight your way to the ship to the access point nearest to the Hercules, and get back on that dropship.
>"Centennial Hawk, this is Sergeant Henderson. Reporting mission complete. Get back to the Daluke, I'll find my own way back."You ready your weapons, unlock bayonets with a shing, and aim at the door they're massing behind. A wielding torch starts sparking at the lock. >"Come on, ya sons of bitches. I ain't got all day."The door slides open. You open fire.>Loading mission Parameters, Corporal Barney Mills...
>>25898053My fucking god I HATE you idiots.
>>25898053Good luck Henderson, you crazy bastard...
>>25898081Because our mahreen can obviously pilot ships.
>>25898081((It's just a cliffhanger, calm down.Mia's was one too.They all are.))
>>25898090Because you're evil and love to torture us.
>>25898102And that's why we love her.
>>25898053I'm pretty sure I count more 3s than 1s.
>>25898090Didn't >3win? Unless our timing was off.
>>25898127A few votes may have been made after the voting ended. I'm assuming Adjutant was too lazy this time to post >voting ended, calculating votes
>>25898127As do I
>>25898127Most likely past the deadline.
>>25898127likely started writing before 3 got in the lead
>>25898127>>25898135((It did eventually, these decisions don't have a deadline really, it's influenced by early consensus because they're split-second decisions.))
>>25898166so everyone talking about grabbing a shuttle\dropship influenced it.Makes sense,
>>25898081You're cute. Now get the fuck over it and calm your sissy ass down.
You're on the dropship.Daisy and Tyrone say you're gonna burn bad people.You don't like bad people.Pilot yelling. Something bad happens. Scared.>"It's okay, Barney. We're gonna be fine.">"Yeah, don't you sweat it, Baby. We're gonna be kickin' Dominion ass before you can say "Magic Dinosaur."Still scared. Loud noises. Lots of Booms. You hit head. Ow, ow, ow, ow.>"Medic! Medic, Tyrone's got it bad!">"Aww hell, Baby."Metal rod is in Tyrone's arm. Really hurts you think. Miss Jessie there, though. She'll kiss it. Make it all better.>"We're not lifting off in this thing, we're gonna have to take the docking bays. Barney, Daisy, you're forward team one. Escort the pilots, get us a ship. Jessie, go with them. Everyone else on me, we're going for the bridge."You step out of ship. Inside bigger ship. Big hole in ship. Can see stars. So pretty...>"Barney, let's go!"Oh! Following miss Daisy. You go down hall. Another hall. More hall. Bad man pops out. Scares you. You burn him. Don't want him to think he's bad though. Sing to him. Make him feel better.Big door. Probably big room. Be dumb to have big door and small room.>"We're here. Probably going to be a lot of resistance. Let us go in first, we'll mop up, and you can take the dropship. Ready Barney?"You nod. You're ready for your big fight. Miss Daisy and Jessie painted a big scary face on your suit. They're all gonna run from you now!So what were you supposed to do, again?
>>25898237They wanted us to be all big and scary and to burn all the bad men in there. And to keep Miss Daisy safe, she'll make sure to kiss it better as long as we keep her safe. We go in first while singing.
>>25898237Point and burn?
>>25898237Big people might be scared. Sing to them, then burn then.
>>25898267yes we have to burn the bad men so they don't hurt are friends
>>25898237Huh, never knew that piloting Firebats literally turns you into the TF2 Pyro. Then again, I don't play Starcraft.Anyways, go in, sing, scatter targets with glorious fire.
>>25898267Noooo, is miss Jessie who makes hurts all better. Miss Daisy also burns bad people. She really likes her job.You silly, Barney.
>>258982671+1 is 2,1+1 is 2,Barney Taught Me...1+1 is 2
>>25898237This entire post.You had a lot of fun writing this didn't you?
>>25898237Heh, something about being in Barney's head is...unsettling(Also dunno if it's intentional OP, but Daisy? If Barney starts singing that song I'll flip)Anyway, just remember to burn the bad people only Barney and stay close to your friends. They'll help point your big strong fireballs at the bad guys.
>>25898295((Yes.Yes I did.))
I love you, you love me we're a happy family
>>25898311you know, if possible, probably have daisy play this: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4pbMUEHvoAo
>>25898285Barney is very silly. This means that we can burn things with Miss Daisy! Make sure that if she's covering one direction we're covering the other so none of the bad guys can get behind us. Miss Jessie will kill is all better if we get hurt, she's a nice person.
Blue is bad,Purple is goodBurn blue things
>>25898366Huh? I thought Dominion was red?
>>25898402ya the raiders are blue
>>25898402>>25898393Doesn't matter so long as they're not fire.
Well fuck the raiders too
It's startling how fitting our collective thought process is to Barney.>Bad guys blue?>No red>No, does not matter
>>25898439they kind of are the reason along side the queen of blades DP went rouge
>>25898466I have no idea what you are saying past the first half of that sentence.
>>25898466A consequence of their own selfish ambition They are so bloodthirsty and shortsighted they probably never thought of the consequences their impact has on the entire Dominion empire
>>25898481they are why DP had the chance to go rogue
>>25898503Raynor is not a fan of the Dominion due to the whole getting backstabbed thing
Holyyyy shit, I just got in. Damn this is fucking awesome, I love Ghost Quest and I love Adjutant.
>>25898534same with kerrigan
Door opens. Lots of people. They stop and look. They don't have guns, but you can be a bad guy without a gun.>"Let's make magic, Barney."You reach out your hands and begin to sing to the poor, poor bad people. Some of them try to lock themselves away in ships. They leave the other bad people outside. You hear them yelling bad people things. Jets of pretty fire fly out of your throwers.>"Day-see, Day-see, give me your answer, dooo-">"PLEASE! NO GOD, PLEASE! AAAAAHHHHH AH AH AHHHHH!"Another bad man tries to crawl away. You grab him by the foot and drag him towards you. He turns around as you raise up your fist to crush his head in. He can't be bad with no head!>"Please! I have a family! I have a daughter! I surrender!">"Ey'ahm half Cray-zee, over the thought of yoooou-">"Htchk! Gurk, huhhhgurk...."Several of them hide in a dropship. Silly bad men. You can run but you can't hide. You pick up a heavy box. You set it in front of the door and set the dropship on fire. You sing louder as you watch them wave to you from inside the dropship. These bad men are nice! You wave back.>"It won't be a styyyylish Marriage, I can't afford a Carriaaage-">"LET US OUT! PLEASE, MERCY, PLEASE GOD!">"-But you'll look sweet-"One of the wounded, burnt bad men grabs your boot. >"Hhhe- help... me...."You bring your throwers down and wash him away. He's not good yet. He will be, though.>"Upon the seat, of a vulture built for twwwwooooo!~">What were you doing...?
>>25898537We all love Adjutant.Hopefully we'll get to love her soon, if you know what I mean
>>25898546Best post of the century.I think we're burning bad people all the way to the bridge? But there aren't any bridges nearby.
>>25898546Daisy told us to burn the bad men.Keep burning the bad men!
>>25898534But probably doesn't realise that destroying the Dominion creates a power vacuum, letting worlds become controlled by warlords, perhaps even more cruel and makes the fragmented Dominion even more desperate to take conrol
>>25898584well he did put the Crown Prince in control after killing his dad
>>25898584DP is the warlord.
>>25898546We were supposed to get a dropship for all of our friends. So find a dropship that is in okay shape and make sure it's clear for our friends to use. Don't burn it too badly inside.
>>25898546God damn OP...you're just fapping all kinds of brutal murder all over this postI love it...though I am a little concerned about Barney's...erm...indiscriminate destruction.But at least it's not our gang..I guess.Erm...find our crew, they were suppose to be keeping us in check damn it(Also, dat song, my fucking sides)
>>25898546Wow I feel a little bad now.Who were these people crew? Pilots? Soldiers
We're lostWe gotta ask for direction towards the big head of the ship
>>25898584such is the price that is paid. Even then, mengsk was also working on the hybrids in secret, so maybe removing him stalled the project for a bit.
>>25898613they were bad men
>>25898546The bad men are all gone! The room is nice and clean! >"Good Job, Barney. Really... really, oh god, good job."You blush. Miss Daisy's so nice, and so pretty. She sets a few extra things on fire. Maybe those boxes were bad...The pilots come in. You tell them not to use the one dropship. Bad men were inside. One gives you a funny look. He's silly.>"This is Tyrone. We've taken the bridge. Report your status, baby.">"Got the bad men, Tyrone. We got a ship maybe.">"Now that's what I like to hear, big brotha! Keep those dropships safe."How we gonna do that?
>>25898599Not yet we're not
>>25898613They were bad men. You're silly, Barney.
>>25898626do we have anyone to weld the doors?
>>25898626We're going to sit at the entrances of the room, just to the left or right of a door, and burn bad men that come close.
>>25898656Fire welds doors.You can shoot fire....!!!
Is daisy sick or happy? Seems a little forced when she praised him.Btw did tyrone ever find his aunt?
>>25898626Keep it safe...well there are bound to be reinforcments.Find the doorways and be sure to guard them. Don't want more bad men popping up on us.
>>25898546I'm torn between the awesome and the horror...Glorious...
>>25898665Weld the doors to stop the bad men getting in!
>>25898626Well what are the ways into this room? We can't block them all off because our friends still need to come back here, but we can block most of them off with boxes or maybe weld the doors shut if our fire is hot enough. Make sure we leave the right door open so Tyrone can come back, we like Tyrone, he's so funny.And then we stand near the entrances into the room so people coming towards us can't see us, and if they're bad men we shoot fire down the hallway and BURN THEM.
>>25898665...or this, this would work too, unless we're waiting for more people.
>>25898665Weld. Dem. Doors.If you do an extra good job with stopping the bad men, maybe Daisy will give you a kiss.
>>25898639((I may be silly and tired (damn you for making me stay so late), but I'm not a pyromaniac))
>>25898686There's... one door at left, two door at right...Two Door! There's two doors!We like Tyrone. We know we ain't a'posed to 'cuz Mama says his kinda people ain't got souls. But he can be a good guy without a souls right?
>>25898694we need to leave one door alone so funny man can get in
>>25898706barney you silly we are a firebat. Pyro was in the job description
>>25898237>Barney sounds like such a nice person, I like Barney.>>25898546>Fuck>antagonism heat'tocaptche pls no, i have family.
Time to weld a RIGHT door shut, then put guards alongside the other doors. Close to em.
>>25898717Good guys don't need souls, silly.That's why only the bad guys ever scream out "GOD SAVE MY SOUL. HELP ME GOD"cmon Barney
>>25898626If we put the box of bad men in front, others will not want to use the ship!
>>25898694>>25898684>>25898656Remember people, we have to leave doors open for Tyrone and the rest of our friends, otherwise they'd be stuck on the ship with bad men, and that'd be bad.>>25898717Ask Miss Daisy which doors we should weld shut so Tyrone can come back just fine. She should know, she knows lots of things.And of course we can like Tyrone, he's still a friendly guy and makes us laugh. Never said anything mean about us.
>>25898717oh, that's just RASCIST!
>>25898717Sure they can be, just make sure they don't try to kill the good guys.
>>25898737go for it
>"Whatcha' doin, Barney?">"I'm weldin' the door shut, Miss Daisy!">"Oh, I gotta watch this."You step up to the door and douse it in beautiful, beautiful flames. It begins to bend and the door begins to melt. Hah! Haha! This is fun! Melt more door! Melt more door! Oh. Whoops.There's a hole in the door.Daisy seems to be watching the door melt too, she's got her hand in that weird spot again.>"Miss Daisy, it didn't work.">"Huh? Oh, yeah. Go get some crates and stick them there while it's still hot."Miss Daisy. Always so smart. You pick up heavy boxes and put them in front of the door. They melt into it. Perfect!Now we just gotta wait on Tyrone.
>>25898769>Too much door meltAlright, that might be bad.>Hand in weird spot againI... what?
>>25898769Oh, Barney, that just means Daisy's enjoying the fire! Keep it up, and you'll definitely get that kiss.
>>25898769Its both positively awesome and highly disturbing how easy you can write a mentally challenged pyromaniac so well.
>>25898738Have you never played Starcraft before?I mean really. It's basically rednecks vs. aliens. In space. And Raynor is a fucking cowboy gunslinger. I'm not shitting you.http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=OnL3GjOIb_M
>>25898769Miss Daisy is so smart. Once we're done with this important mission, remember Barney, this mission is very important so we have to focus, once we're done here and back on the Daluke we can give Miss Daisy a big, but gentle, momma always told us to be gentle, hug to thank her for being so nice to us and being so smart.I wonder why she's touching herself, maybe we should ask her later. She's so smart, I'm sure it makes perfect sense.
>>25898769Heh, we shoulda known better then to tell the Pyro to melt in moderation I guess.At least Daisy's smart.
>>25898803Daisy is a crazy pyromaniac she gets off on this stuff
>>25898803I think it's like a CMC hand on her hipOnly her hand is a giant flame spewerSo it looks weird.
>>25898814And thus you know why I have this nameLike it or not, we're playing Sci fi Western.
>>25898803She's masturbating, anon. Hell, I caught it when she paused while congratulating Barney.
You sit around and wait for a bit. Eventually you hear gunfire and head to the other door. The gunfire stops and the Mayreens and Tyrone run through. Tyrone is carrying a wounded good guy. Miss Jessie will help him though! Hey wait, Tyrone is missing his helmet.His skin really white, like paper, except for little dots, and his hair really red, like fire.>"It's too heavy! We gotta split! Everyone onboard that transport now!"Oh, you hate transport rides...>Loading mission Parameters: Helldog Mercenary Squad, Corproral "Bossman."...
>>25898859Got that. Isn't she in a firebat suit, too, though? How is that even...
>>25898864Wait, Tyrone isn't black? What a twist.
>>25898886its worst hes a Ginger.
>>25898864ginger anagrams to...?
>>25898864>Ginger>has no soulOh, Adjutant...
>>25898864OH MY GOD GINGER MARAUDERS!? YES
>>25898864If this surprised you, you're a racist
>>25898930Marauders have black dude voices, I should know this as I once perfected the art of spamming them.
>>25898769What weird spot is she face palming or something
Now that I think of it I imagine most firebats would get along really well. Decent folk, they.Why don't we have more firebats?
>Thread is archived. >Next segment is gonna take a bit to write beeeecaaaause I haven't planned it out quite yet and need to get in Character.>Vote for it in the meantime and I'll answer questions if you have any.
>>25898991Take your time Bossman. I'm set for the night.Also no questions that aren't spoilers you bastard
>>25898984No, no she isn't. She's trying to masturbate through a CMC-660 suit.
>>25898803>>25898984Yeah, I was wondering too. The only place that isn't covered in metal is her face.
>>25899019An anon can dream
>>25899019thats what I figured as well.
>>25899030It's feasible she could just bash the hell out of her massive codpiece, but that wasn't quite what OP described. So I'm as confused as anyone.
>>25899030((Her face is also covered.))
>>25899057Not by metal, though. You need more barney images.
I bet she has a dildo in her armor.
>>25899055She might be able to get a bit of pressure, or it could be more psychological than anything else. I'm sure she'll explain everything about it to Barney, later.
>>25899055>>25899055((Her hand just instinctively drifts there when things are on fire.You might recall she's a serious pyromaniac from her personal records when you were selecting firebat recruits.))
>>25899080Well, yeah...>>25899077That explains it.
>>25899055>clang clang clang clangIf anything she's probably just instinctively trying but not getting anything out of it.
>>25899080Well, we knew Terran forces were almost ALL crazy as fuckNot as crazy as Zerg or Protoss I guess, but you know.
>>25898991How well does our crew get along with each other in general? Are they all friendly to each other?What is the crew's opinion of Delta?
>>25899102What if she just has this button around her crotch area that activates a vibrator in her suit?best mod ever
>>25898991>>25899131Crew's Opinion of Delta Phoenix is high. You've mostly recruited anti-Dominion civilians and attacked Dominion targets so they think you the bomb.
>>25898991Adjutant, can we modify Goliaths to carry an SCV for field repairs?Sadly I have no picture, but here's a bit from the BattleTech wiki:>OmniMechs could also be used extensively as infantry transports. In 2868, Clan Wolf began fielding Battle Armored Infantry> By refitting and retrofitting OmniMechs with handholds, OmniMechs could perform as dedicated infantry transports.
>>25899163We probably don't have time for it now, but that's a good idea for the future I think.
We need more firebats. They are fun, happy people.
>>25899163It'd be like in Star Wars with the droids.
>>25898626what the fuck is Barney?I missed a few quests.
>>25899192Except instead of R2D2 it's JimmybobCleetusLee
>>25899218Barney is the purple hero firebat.
>>25899218"He likes purple"
>>25896700>Wraiths are more nimble. So get in close and move in between them. Wraiths also pack a bigger punch so we are better dogfighters right now.Did you see that quest where Wraiths were duking it out against GI Joe planes?
>>25899452where was this?
>>25899479The quest continues.
>>25899488The Last Library. on suptg archive. Has a crossover with MGNQ in the finale. Reveals that yes, in fact, some people were living in a fictional world.
