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're the leader of the Helldog mercenaries. Distinguished in combat against infested terrans and zerg. Your commander, Delta Phoenix, has ordered your team to take over the bridge of a Behemoth class Dominion battlecruiser attacking the planet Murric. >"All other guns bow before this gun.">"Whatever, Rio. Everyone knows that Johnny Lee Junior had the greatest gun of all time.">"Johnny... Lee... man, you Koprulu sector types make the weirdest people famous.">"No, let me tell you about Johnny Lee Junior. Greatest Confederate vulture pilot. After the war with the Kel-Morian Combine he had gunshot wounds covering ninety-five percent of his body. They had medics calling in other medics because they'd never seen a gunshot get shot before, so-">"Elliot you know what my favorite part of your stories is? The sound they make when they stop.">"Alright, everybody shut up, now. We're about to crash into that docking bay, so get your asses ready."
My ass is ready.
>>25899479it's go time
>>25899479My ass is also prepared, L4D2 gun team
>>25899568See >>25899569 for your answer
>>25899479The doors are open, vikings come and go for repairs, and it's your best spot to enter the battlecruiser. You brace yourself for a rough landing. The ship goes down hard, and the door opens. Your 4-man squad pelts the deck crew with automatic fire as the Dropship spins around almost 360 degrees and slides down the docking bay.>"Go! Go! Go!"Your squad unloads and the support team steps out as well. One of the pilots comes over radio.>"Aww hell, it's gonna take us a bit to get the landing gear up.">"Just make sure you've got it by the time we get back."It's time to plan your way to the bridge from the docking bay. Living quarters, armory, or the main hall.
>>25899623I'm thinking Living Quarters, less likely to be armed people in there. The Main Hall probably can be blocked off and barricaded by hostiles pretty easily, and the armory while it's full of guns is also likely full of enemies with said guns.
>>25899623Through the armory. Sabotoge it so the locals can't use it. Maybe we'll find something special there to.
>>25899623If we hit the armory hard and fast enough, the crew won't have time or the means to arm themselves, so we can slice through the rest of the ship like butter.We can also stock up on explosives and other cool stuff in the armory.
>>25899623Living quartersArmory and mess hall is most likely to have large concentration of enemy forces but when its battlestations Nobody is still in their racks
>>25899623What can we expect in the main Hall? Just engineers and crew?Might be wise to go there, since the Armory no doubt has the most weapons...not sure.
>>25899623armory so we can keep as many as we can from getting armed
>>25899678There's probably going to be boarding defense teams where-ever you go, it's the fastest way to the bridge though.
>>25899623Armory is no point, its will be practically empty, guns would have been taken ages ago.Could we get the teams personal profiles up?As i remember nick having a under slung grenade launcher, good for the corridors of the living quarters.
>>25899654Its a possibility for a large ship like that there are multiple armories
>1 Take out the armory - fast.>2 Sneak through the living quarters.>3 Head straight down the main hall to the Bridge.
>>25899710Hm...no scans makes this kinda difficultI say we go through the Main Hall, simply because of the distance covered. If we encounter heavy barricades, then falling back to the Living Quarters seems reasonable.
>>25899717You recall your squad loadout. Might be handy...>Corporal Chad "Bossman" RiceCCS-12 Shotgun with Bayonet AttachmentDual P-45 Pistols>Corporal Nicholas WalkerC-14 With Grenade Launcher attachment3x Fragmentation GrenadeP-55 Pistol>Corporal Elliot LadinAGR-14 RifleDual P-45 Pistols.Handheld Fusion Cutter.>Corporal Rio AytesC-14 With Bayonet Attachment.Dual P-45 Pistols.Medical Kit x5.
>>25899811No pillz? I am disappoint
>>25899866We never did get those Stimpack schematics...
>>25899886You mean heroi- I-I mean Adrenaline?
>>25899811That fusion cutter is going to come in handy.
>>25899811What happened to the combat shields?
You decide on taking out the armory. Without guns there won't be much resistance, hopefully. Your team activates their laser sights and you move down the Corridors quickly. There is minor resistance, the occasional armed marine without a CMC, but they rarely stand their ground for more than a second before they realize how full of bullets they are.You reach the armory.>"Nick, Grenade, go!"The ordinance flies in through the door and rolls to a stop. A loud explosion, followed by several more loud explosions and screams, and you shut the door.>"Elliot, wield it shut!">"Man, I love wielding."Sparks fly and the armory is sealed and destroyed. You make for the bridge. Two men stand guard but you take them completely by surprise. Upon entering and a brief exchange of fire the last 4 guards inside the bridge go down.You have effectively taken the bridge hostage. What do you do with it?
>>25899953You don't use combat shields, they slow you down too much.
>>25899980...Whoa these guys are crazy.Like, really crazy.
>>25899980vent the ship of air, open all doors/ airlocks
>>25899980Can we point the ships guns at all those valkyries flying around?
>>25900007You could indeed start shooting down enemy vikings.
>>25899980Oh, Oh, try to get the rest of the crew to abandon ship so we can take it for ourselves!
>>25899980thinking we rig the place to and GTFO
>>25899980Make sure entrances to the bridge are as secure as we can get them.See if we can force the crew here to fire on their allies, on the other battle cruisers as well as the enemy Vikings and so on. Also, we may want to force them to vent the ship.
>>25899980Any way we can re-target their guns? Maybe quench the reactor...I'll ask, but I doubt that anyone with us knows how to pilot a BattleShip...
>>25899980Wield it.Wield the bridge.Elliot loves wielding
>>25899980Sabotage babyAnd by that I mean make sure this cruiser isn't going to be hurting anyone when we leave.
>>25899980Blow the comms, blow the wiring. I want this ship to go dark.
>>25900020nevermind do this start shooting at them
Also shut EVERY door in the place. Make it a pain and a half to get anywhere. Turn on the sprinklers too.
>>25899980Force them to fire a Yamato at the the ghost ship after getting as much information as you can from them about it taking a hostage or two may prove fruitful, then turn their own guns against the vikings, lastly smash/weld the controls so they can't stop it.
Vent as much atmosphere as possible.
Of all else fails steer it into another dominion battleship and get the hell out
>>25900071DP is in a drop pod on the way to the ghost ship
>>25900056>>25900053Combination of these...THEN sabotage it
>>25900020This>>25900035This>>25900056And this.Let's do it. (Man, these guys...)
>>25900056Also, have the lights flash on and off...But defiantly have the ship start firing on the Vikings... Maybe send a message over to the Daluke that we have the bridge and have it's guns ready to thin the horde...That way, we can co-ordinate our fire, meaning less friendly casualties and potential for higher enemy casualties...
Elliot already goes to wield the doors shut. You're not sure if that's because it's a good idea or he's just enthusiastic about his specialization.>"Alright listen up. Every gun you have is going to point at a Dominion ship. Every airlock you have that does not connect to this bridge is going to open."A man stands up, a Navigator. Young, by the looks of him. You point your gun at him.>"You gotta problem with that?">"None at all. Ensign White, prepare a firing solution for Teron, Fueron, and Phoenix 1's squads.">"Whoa, whoa. Who's Phoenix 1.">"The ship at the back...">Loading next mission. Delta Phoenix...
>>25900101Oh yeah, forgot about that.
>>25900141>Phoenix 1Aww shit. Set our HAPPENING level to "IT BEGINS"
>>25900141you know, I wouldn't be surprised if they die... or if they take the damn battleship in the end.Could go either way.
>>25900141>Phoenix 1whoa what
>>25900184they just took the ship
>>25900201they took the bridge for now yes but any crew that is suited is gonna be mighty angry.
>>25900141>Phoenix 1Que pasa?
>>25900227they took out the armory and welded it shut then vented the air pretty much the whole crew is dead now
Your pod is shot out of the ship at several hundred miles per hour. On board thrusters will raise that number even higher before you break through the [REDACTED] ship's hull. You don't have any sensors. You're just ammunition.You hold on tight to the bars keeping you in place. The pod begins to shake, and turn. Other pods are likely being shot down. You're not so unlucky however. Your pod crashes through into the ship. It opens open and you step forward into what appear to be some sort of research labs. >"Condition Juliet has been declared. All combat units to stations."You stand up and take a look around. Protoss, Zerg, and Terran corpses are all floating in tanks of some green solution. There's a table at the center covered in blood. You'd rather not consider it's purpose.>Current Objective: Disable Battlecruiser.>Recommended Objectives: Engines, Bridge.>Threat level: Unknown.You will need information, first.>Interrogate crew. Violently.>Attempt to hack local systems, possibly alerting the ship to your presence.
>>25900261Definatly need to send a message to the Daluke informing them of our newest Battleship... assuming more survive, we could give one to Murric.... Though I don't quite know why we'd do such a thing...
>>25900294I advise against counting chickens prior to hatching, Delta Phoenix.
>>25900286>>Interrogate crew. Violently.
>>25900286>Interrogate crew. Violently.
>Interrogate crew. Violently.we just got better at telepathy. Lets use that.
>>25900286>Interrogate crew. Violently.let's not mess with the systems on this ship
>>25900294Really we don't have nearly enough crew to man another battleship. Murric (and not-Coruscant) could get it manned and running at full capacity very quickly though I should think.And we'd be fucking heroes to boot.
>>25900286Could we grab a Crewman and make him access the local systems? That way, it wouldn't set off an alarm...Or we could just use psyonics to take the information from him...
>>25900286Ghost into the Engines. Get reads on crew.They should be distracted about everything else happening.
>>25900286Ok, why would there be corpses of protoss, zerg and human in a ship being sent to pacify and reclaim a separatist planet? It wouldn't make much sense for research specimens to be brought along for combat, would it?
>>25900372...what if they aren't research specimens?
>>25900372They've been known to test experimental weaponry on rebels before.We're dealing with hybrids here, and it's not going to be pretty. If we can record/get evidence of this, we should definitely do so, it'll go a long way in turning people against the Dominion even more. Btw, who IS the new Emperor anyway? Valerian seems okay.
>>25900405((At this point there is no canon so you don't knowwww~))
You stalk the shadows. The crews on board have a uniform that seems oddly familiar to you. Darker than standard Dominion. The hallways are mostly barren so taking a hostage shouldn't be difficult. This cruiser is very under-staffed for it's size. You sneak up behind a crewman and take him by the neck. You pull him back into the labs and strap him onto the table. >"Y-you! They said you'd come!"They. Ghosts.... Operatives.... Can't read his mind.>"You have two options. Tell me what I want to know or I will remove your implants so I can find out."You bring up your recon hand. The hidden blade unsheathes itself with a sinister snickt.>"No, please! I don't know! I'm just an engineer, please!"You bring your knife down to his temple and begin to apply pressure.>"I don't know, they're spooks, Dominion! There's maybe 4 of them? They just call each other phonetic designations, please, that's all I know! I'm just an engineer!">"They're Ghosts?">"Yeah, man. They're psionic and can stealth and everything.">"What's the purpose of these samples.">"We've... I dunno, we're just going to different planets, we're collecting them for some other project, I don't know! I just run the engines!"Your psionics at this point are powerful enough to pick up emotion despite his resistance. You believe he's telling the truth.>Let him live.>Cut his throat, continue mission.>Turn on the automatic surgeon with faulty programs. Leave the room.
I seriously gotta know - is Henderson okay??I've been sobbing profusely for the last hour and people are starting to give me odd looks.
>>25900488>Cut his throat, continue mission.
>>25900488knock him out
>>25900502Once we're wrapped up here we'll see to it. Patience.
>>25900488Let him live. Knock him out though.
>>25900502((Is he ever not?))
>>25900488Man, we should definitely kill him. We really can't risk the mission going bad.It's kind of a dick move to murder the dude, but we've killed civilians before so who gives a fuck.
>>25900488>Let him live.
>>25900540((DP's morality: It's only a moral choice if it's 1 person, otherwise it's collateral damage!))
>>25900488>>25900526> Let him live((Forgot proper procedure for a sec there, sorry))
>>25900488>Cut his throatLet's move on
>>25900553No procedure at the moment. Just discussion.
>>25900488Turn on the auto surgeonWe don't want him to alert the place of our presence but we also don't want a suspicious pool of blood in the room
>>25900555Oh okay.There's no point in killing him, he's already strapped to the table, so he wouldn't be going anywhere. Just konk him over the head or something and knock him out.We gain nothing by killing him at this point. He doesn't know why we're on this ship, nor what our objective is.Besides, they were clearly expecting us.
>>25900488Vote begins:>1 Let him live but knock him unconscious.>2 Cut his throat, continue mission.>3 Turn on the automatic surgeon with faulty programs. Leave the room.
Seriously, there's no reason to start getting super fucking moralfag right now. We're infiltrating a Ghost Battleship, with the probable endgoal being to blow to ship to smithereens.We can kill him now or kill him later (albeit slightly less directly).
>>25900541>>25900553>>25900540We've killed honest fucking civilians over trivial shit.This guy is Dominion, let's kill him.
>>25900631>>25900629>>25900624Yay just what we need, more nightmares and a pissed off Dark Templar
>>25900647look at least we did not vote 3 that shit is fucked up
>>25900665((Implying he didn't deserve it for being responsible for billions of dead Murricans.Do you hate Murric?))
>>25900488>Let him live.Restrain him and leave. He's just an engineer, not Isaac Clarke.
>>25900605Vote ended at 22:24. Tallying votes...
>>25900678Don't antagonize, Adjutant, that's just making our future punishment cruelerIt's clear your universe runs off Karma
>>25900698((Yes. But Bad Karma is just as strong as good Karma.))
>>25900701That's why I'm afraid. ;~;
>>25900678Do you love Earth, son? Do you love your mom and dad?>Wonder if we find UED in some place.
>>25900721abbadon. Also, is one of the L4D2 crew UED?
>1 Let him live but knock him unconscious.You bash him over the head with your cyber-fist. You make down the halls, following power conduits to any major system. Eventually a sign shows itself.>"PHOENIX ONE.">"ENGINEERING ->">"BRIDGE ->">"ENGINES <-"You... know that name. Why do you know that name?It doesn't matter. You need to select your objective.

>>25900748Engines.It will be a leaf in the wind.

>>25900748>"ENGINES <-"time to blow this ship sky high.Also remember we are expecting Ghosts according to that engineer. Keep a close eye on sensors as well as our own psychic abilities.
>>25900748Engines, make the ship able to do nothing. Saving the lives below takes priority.
>>25900748...there's a sign that just says Phoenix One?...damn it, I'm curious, but...gah, let's check it out.
>>25900748Go to the Bridge. We can vent the ship from there. The labs might hold some useful information...
>>25900783thats the name of the ship.
>>25900748Engines, why not.
>>25900791Main engineering has power controls. Engines will just disable the ship's ability to move or jump.
>>25900804>>25900802>>25900783Phoenix one is the name of the ship.
>>259007671 on 3-4 are not good odds. We disable the ship, take what's left when it falls.
>>25900811oh oops. Engineering then.
>>25900811then lets sabotage the engine room for now
>>25900821ooh, whoops.Engines it is then!
>>25900811Yeah, changing vote from engines to engineering.
>>25900748>>25900811>>25900825Engineering. Disable their ability to fight back, or at least screw up as much as we can.Maybe we can snag some schematics while we're there.

Engineering sounds good
>>25900843>Maybe we can snag some schematics while we're there.I hate you.This is the reason we always die. Fuck fuck fuck fuck.
>>25900858true. probably not guarded as heavily as the Bridge would be...
>>25900876Oh come on. It's a high-tech research vessel, there's bound to be something we can use.And the ship's practically deserted. We should have some time to grab at least one thing.
>>25900850Vote ends at 22:35. Tallying votes...
Goddammit yoi idiots, we just got hook, line and sinkered over the shiny.
>>25900903While I'm tempted to agree that there would be goodies on board...the risk is too great. It shouldn't be this easy...something big is on this ship, and we're going to piss it off soon.Just hoping the mission goes well.
>>25900928engineering is where we set the ships reactors to blow up. Its the quickest way to kill the damn thing.
>>25900949OFC the sign doesn't necessarily have to be accurate, especially if they're expecting us.
>>25900949WE DON'T HAVE A FUCKING WAY OFF DUMBASS.
>>25900986and? We do what we always do. Improvise.
>>25900986We're not going to blow it up, we're going to disable it.
We are so fuckedOC for the occasion
>>25901048...that was funnier then it shoulda been.
>>25901002I cannot believe you are leginimately this retarded.'We're on a ship set to go nuclear, with no idea where the docking bay is or even if it has any craft we can pilot left.'"Let's improvise!"Fuck me, you're a blight.
>>25901102You do realize once we shut it down we can just call in a dropship?
>>25901114Well first we have to have available dropships, then it has to survive any fighters still prowling about.Also, this scenario was based on the utterly retareded idea of setting to blow like Redaeth suggested. If we can disable it, then sure, go ahead.
You move through the shadows, avoiding the occasional crew member who walks past. You make it to the central fission reactor and step towards the console.A single shot rings out, you sensed it moments before and jump back. >"Delta, Delta, Delta. I was just waxing goddam' nostalgic about you."The man emerges from the shadows. Another ghost. Much older than you, much more experienced, >"Zeta.">"You we was comin'. I refuse to believe someone that I trained for so long could think putting the rogue marine she went on her last assignment with on planetary T.V. was a good idea. Especially when he's so god'amn boisterous."You suddenly remember everything. You remember the fires over Daemos 9. The civilians burning alive as you tracked your target.

>>25901158>Close for close combat. Zeta's a sniper and this needs to be personal.well, we did train with the Protoss for something, didn't we?
>>25901158Can we tell how strong his psionics are at all?If not, yeah we need to get in close.
>>25901185I have no records on him at this time.You sense that his psionics are likely weaker than yours.
>>25901158>Close for close combat. Zeta's a sniper and this needs to be personal.
>>25901158>>Hellfire grenades don't leave bodies. The last thing you need is something to remember him by.Fuck it, cheat. We cannot afford to take risks with him.
>>25901158Play it safe, Delta!He wants you to get mad and fuck up.Throw a Hellfire grenade and use psionics at the same time. Two-pronged assault and the safest way to approach things.
>>25901158Do a quick (very quick) sweep for any other ghosts.
>close for close combat.With the upgrades we have right now, I think we should bear a major advantage over his years of experiance
>Hellfire grenades don't leave bodies. The last thing you need is something to remember him by.
>>25901217You suspect an ambush, but you can't sense anyone else.Looks like it's just you and him, and he has experience.
>>25901201don't waste the hellfire dude we might need it later
>>25901232>LooksI'm assuming that's with all our crazy sensors.
>>25901158Since our own psionics were kept in check by the dominion, I think it's better if we use a grenade and assault his mind, to confuse him in time for the grenade to kill him...or at least hurt himIf it fails, well...we do have advanced CLose combat for a reason.
>>25901158>Beat him down with Psionics. Rip his mind apart.Maybe we can learn more of out past?

>>25901214I agree psionics to lock him down and either an irradiation or hellfire grenade to take him out.
>>25901158>>25901190I'm leery about the grenade, because if he's as skilled as we remember, then he'd probably just dodge it, and that would be a waste of a grenade. Have we ever seen him fight hand-to-hand?
Hellfire grenade AND Psionics, cmon!
>>25901214Sure, chuck a grenade then distract him.Say, Adjutant, does bloolit time increase our evasion abilities.
>>25901264How are we supposed to do both psionics and hellfire?

>>25901158>Hellfire grenadesThis psychic reflexes thing is about to pay off big
>>25901332... how is taking out a ghost who is more skilled then us a waste?
>>25901345he is not more skilled then us remember the whole being trained by dark templars bit
>>25901345There are at least two other ghosts around here. If we get jumped by both we'll need it.
>>25901345Experience != Skill
>>25901366We don't really know how skilled he is compared to our Protojitsuu now.
>>25901366i hope you are right cause you are banking a lot on a weeks training.
Dammnit, why did I have to sleep in
You close the distance at a sprint, cybernetic hand raised, and eject the bloodied knife. Zeta stealths, assuming you don't have the sensors to see him. Well, he's in for a surprise. You hit him across the face and send his mask flying, revealing the old man beneath it, one dead eye and scars that are almost countless. Close combat was always one of your strong points. You manage to get the upper hand and stomp one of his knees inwards. He falls to the other knee, but doesn't make so much as a peep in pain. He continues taunting you.>"We've already confirmed your other teams failed. The Hydron's going down as we speak. We'll take this planet and start a domino effect. There's no escape, Delta... The Dominion always wins."You take his throat in your hands and raise your combat knife overhead. >Mind probe him. You need information.>Kill him. It's not worth it. You don't need to know everything.

>>25901628>>Kill him. It's not worth it. You don't need to know everything.Psionic probing would be extremely difficult, he could possibly show us whatever he wants, and we would be vulnerable while fighting him. There are 3 more ghosts on board.Put him down while we can.
>>25901712...Shutting up now.In any case, I still think it's too risky, especially since we have 3 other ghosts to deal with.>>25901717They completed their missions beforehand.
>>25901740Adjutant already told us we're stronger then him mentally.
>>25901717The problem is it makes us vulnerable: either to attacks from other ghosts (we know he's not likely alone) or psychic retaliation from Zeta. As it is now we've got him over a barrel - let's not give him the opportunity to do any damage as we show him the door.
>>25901741Cliffhangers after we've confirmed the success of their missions.The only thing now in dispute is if they've survived.
>>25901752I'm talking about their safety, not the success of the mission.
>>25901760it could be a trap
>>25901760No, there is literally such things as mind shields (are they called that?). They block mind-reading and can be moderately disrupting to the ghost, IIRC. I wouldn't put it past these guys to be wearing some.
>>25901760We can't afford to weaken ourselves probing him with three other ghosts on board.
>>25899479Why is the OP pic not a ghost in a Ghost Quest thread? That's a spectre.
>>25901712If we really must, disable him then talk to the adjutant about the current state of our ships.
>>25901784Heck, we just saw one in action with that engineer.
>>25901628> Kill him. It's not worth it. You don't need to know everything.We can't afford to risk wasting time in his head if the other ghosts are nearby.
>>259017911. that is a ghost2. all spectres are ghosts
>>25901791Because he used his Ghost picture already.
>>25901806This guy's got a point. If a low-level grunt had mind-shielding, there's NO WAY this guy doesn't have something similar, or stronger.
>>25901777I've come to expect EVERYTHING in this quest is a trap Except Delta >>25901784I suppose that's reason to be worried, but like it was said, we're mentally stronger then him.I think it's worth it.
>>25901791((Go on. Tell me the difference.Tell me what physical difference there is between a ghost and a spectre that is clearly visible in that concept art.YEAH S'WHAT I THOUGHT NIGGA GET OUT MUH HOUSE))
>>25901792WE DO NOT HAVE THE TIME FOR THAT SHIT.Also, they could detect our commline.
>>25901831>Except Delta>Implying something Mac makes won't give us a penis.
I suggest probing it since we need to know what is in this ship?
>>25901838Faceplate and forearm armor stick out the most.
http://starcraft.wikia.com/wiki/Psi-screen*Psi-screen, not mind-shieldWhy am I the only person who's heard of these?
"I think it is worth it" is generally how Delta manages to constantly fuck herself in the ass.
With a swift strike you end Zeta's life. It doesn't bring you any solace. You are just burdened with the memories of previous missions.You head for the reactor. You could disable it but it'd be back online within minutes. The only solution is to set it to go Critical.You shoot the console once your work is done. By the time they know what's going on it'll be too late. You head for the ship's drop pods, they're the only escape in range. Sure, hurtling at Murric in a Dominion drop pod may not be the best solution, but it's the only one. You run down the empty halls of the Phoenix 1. Explosions and critical electrical lines spark all around you. You enter the pod and shoot yourself away.>"Adjutant... Track my position. If anyone's left, send a ground team to my coordinates.">"I have detected multiple ejections from the D.S.S. [REDACTED], commander. Several drop-pods are inbound to your location."You brace for impact...
>>25901863Because they don't appear in the games.
>>25901867Looks like we have to deal with those other ghosts.Good thing we bought reflexes.
>>25901854no, because he will make Adjutant 2 penis', ribbed for DP's pleasure
>>25901863because no one bothers to read the books or do wiki binges
>>25901867...well...fuckLet's get ready for a party I guess. I have my popcorn.
((GG okay I'm out. I hope you enjoyed today's episode.I will be doing a lot of actual legitimate starcraft games in the future, but you can probably expect a game at the same time tomorrow. I'll be posting any updates on the twitter.This thread is currently at http://suptg.thisisnotatrueending.com/archive.html?tags=Ghost%20QuestMake sure to upvote it.))
>>25901867>>25901956We need our BC to enter the atmosphere and begin blasting a beat for us.
dem cliffhangers, I'm dying here, Adjy.
>>25901999GG.Kind of sad it's over though, think you can extend it a few more hours next time?
>>25901999wasn't the Aeron the one with the XO's son on it?also, why must you tease us?
>>25901999Thanks a bunch, OP.I look forward to the next one. (WOOT I actually got to see another one from start to finish, usually these run too late for me to see them all the way through)
>>25901999Dang Adjutant, did we tire you out after those 3 day 17 hour threads? I miss them already.
>>25902026I only just woke up and was expecting it to got for a few more hours like previous sessions, now I sad :(
>>25902049No I just things I actually have to do.Also I need to actually prepare the next few segments.
>>25902079Ah. Understandable thenLook forward to it then. Woo~
>>25902079Today's set of events was well-put together, thanks Adjy.
Well ended arc, yo. Planned this shit out pretty good from a storyteller's perspective. Even managed to deal with /tg/'s stupid bullshit. GG Adjy
