Back after a long break, it's VALKYRIAN MERCS QUEST!Archive: http://suptg.thisisnotatrueending.com/archive.html?tags=Valkyrian%20Mercs%20QuestPastebin: http://pastebin.com/t7083HCYDon't know what Valkyria Chronicles is? Check it out here! http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Valkyria_Chronicles or http://valkyria.wikia.com/wiki/Valkyria_WikiYou are JAGER STURMFUHRER, leader of the fledgling mercenary company DEMONS OF RANDGRIZ. In addition to fighting Imps for money and vengeance, you have your own private mission to hunt down Karla, your former fiance who sided with the Imperials and destroyed your home.You first arrived in the Federation nation of Albion to help defend it against a possible amphibious attack. However, your boots barely hit the deck before you were assigned a mission to break up a spy ring. However, through a chain of extraordinary events, you not only smashed the spy ring apart, but also managed to capture an Imperial u-boat (mostly) intact, and figh off an Imperial amphibious invasion by defeating their leader, Belkan Knight Sir Fleisher.You then moved on to Ustio, where you helped the beleaguered defenders fend off an Imperial offensive and stage a counterattack. While there, you also took care of a personal mission for Qyburn, got a new weapon called the Buzzbomb, recruited some new squad members, and helped Isolde regain her honor by defeating the Knight leading the Imperial forces in the area, breaking the back of the Imperial offensive.You then returned to Gallia to help the Loyalists fight the GRA. You also found out that your grandmother and a group of Darcsen refugees have begun rebuilding your ancestral home.You then participated in a mission to rescue Archduchess Cordelia from GRA captivity. However, Sam was grievously wounded during the mission, causing you to realize how you really felt about her and reciprocating her feelings for you.(cont)
The best time of the week has finally come.
>>25919040>causing you to realize how you really felt about her and reciprocating her feelings for you.No offense Merc, but this sounds unbelievably cheesy.
You have a nice 4th of July, Merc?
>>25919040Anyways, I had a real great 4th of July weekend, and some bros of mine also commissioned some VMQ fanart as well! It's only Sam and Tarin stuff, but it's still something, right?There's 4 total so I'll start off posting those first before getting back to the quest proper.
>>25919089Heh, it does, doesn't it? Can't get too wordy due to wordcount.>>259191082/4
>>259191544/4Okay, story post coming up soon!
>>25919133Oh god, Sam is HNNNNGGGGG tier.
>>25919040SIX DAYS, MCSIXDAAAAAAAYS
They're all so good, damn. Makes me glad I caught up and can participate for the first time!
Out of them all, I like this the best.
>>259191332adorableImagine her face when Jager said yes
>>25919133Hmm, she seems taller than I imagined. I always had this picture in my head that Sam was way short for her age considering how often Jager just effortlessly picks her up like some kid.
>>25919171>>25919154>>25919133>>25919108>dose art piecesHave a fun time at Anime Expo, did we, Merc?
>SW89, VMQ, GuPQ on the same evening>Wanamote was actually pretty good>LWA 2 kickstarter killed itAs the great warrior poet Ice Cube once said: "If the day does not require an AK...it is good"
>>25919398Could just be that Jager's built like a truck.
>>25919398Obviously, JAGER STURMFUHRER is just that damn tall.
You wake up, feeling oddly refreshed, as if this was the first time in a long time you've gotten a decent night's sleep. However, this feeling seems to clash with the fact that you're currently sitting in the middle of a military police lockup with Sam and a few other Demons.You're honestly not sure how you ended up in this situation, and you're pretty sure you don't want to. The other Demons seem to still be passed out in their alcohol-induced stupor, so asking them for clarification seems out of the question.Well, at least snuggled up against your shoulder, snoring softly.>Wake her up and get her opinion on your current predicament.>Try and disengage from her and call in a guard to figure out what's going on.>Just enjoy the moment.>Other
>>25919431I just realized we don't have a picture of him yet.This needs fixing.
>>25919413The only thing missing now is Ghost Quest.WHY ADJUTANT, WHHHYYYYYYYY?!
>>25919455>Wake her up and get her opinion on your current predicament.Oh, what the hell did we do.
>>25919455You forgot "Sam" there Merc. But>Just enjoy the moment
>>25919455>>Just enjoy the moment.More along the lines of let everyone enjoy their non-hangover state as long as possible.
>>25919455Waking her up seems dickish, but I honestly want to know what's going on.>Wake her up and get her opinion on your current predicament....oh god, her father found out, didn't he.
>>25919455>>Wake her up and get her opinion on your current predicament....Well. this was not how I expected to begin the day.
>>25919455>>Wake her up and get her opinion on your current predicament.Oh what the hell...
>>25919455>Just enjoy the moment.
>>25919455>Just enjoy the moment.followed by>Try and disengage from her and call in a guard to figure out what's going on.
>>25919455>Just enjoy the moment.What better way to top of a night of hard partying than burning off a hangover in some dingy jail cell?
>>25919455>Wake her up and get her opinion on your current predicament.We did tell her to stop drinking, she might remember something.
>>25919455>Wake her up and get her opinion on your current predicament.Poke her in the cheek until she wakes up. Longs going... "Hey. Hey. Listen." Over and over again.
>>25919455>>Wake her up and get her opinion on your current predicament.
>>25919462I know how you feel, man. I miss her, too.
>>25919455>Wake her up and get her opinion on your current predicament.
>>25919455>>Just enjoy the moment.Might as well enjoy it that and waiting for her to wake up would be better than forcibly doing it.
>>25919455As much as you want to, you still feel a bit reluctant about waking up Sam. She smile on her face seems to indicate that she's either having a really good dream, or that she's just really enjoying the moment.You take a deep breath and start poking her in the cheek."Hey. Hey Sam. Sam. Hey Sam." >roll 1d20

>>25919642>>25919645>>25919651So, either Sam punches us when she wakes up or we actually got imprisoned for something serious.

If we just enjoyed the moment this wouldn't have happened.
Rolled 12>>25919724>The rest of the demons wake up to the quarrel and start yelling at them to get a room before going back to bed
What I've learned from this roll is that Sam is very, very, /very/ heavy sleeper. It would take twelve 125mm guns going off to wake her. Maybe.
>>25919716We spent a jolly shore leave thereFor just three days or four,But Randgriz doesn't want us anymore..
So I know critfails cancel out our highest rolls but as far as I've seen crit successes just work. So what exactly happened here? Did we get a critfail for our double 1s or did we get a crit success with some terrible consequences attached to it? I have no idea what is going on.
>>25919729You noticed that your assortment of article of clothing on your person is quite lacking
Rolled 10>>25919750Your GuPQ is leaking, anon.
>>25919772But I'm not even in that quest...
I suppose it's a good thing dice rolls aren't required for going to the bathroom as such a massive critfail would result in a golden (shower) disaster.
So let's take bets: who is in trouble for what?Ramirez? Accidentally burning down a tavernAlek and Elsa? Public indecencyHeloise? VandalismElizabeth? Also public indecency
>>25919754The first 1 cancelled our 20, so we're left with...another 1.Critfail. The worst one yet.
>>25919798>Elizabeth? Also public indecencyNah, impersonating a maid is a felony here.
>>25919798You forgot Tarin Shanking someone.
>>25919634>Hahaha, oh wow. Well, if you're going to critfail, you might as well do it on a low-risk action, right?You see Sam frown as you poke her in the cheek, and what comes next, you honestly didn't see coming. You're not sure if she purposely did it or if it was some weird, subconscious reflex, but without missing a beat Sam's fist swings out and socks you right in the face, already adding on to the bruises and scrapes and aches you've already picked up.And considering she's a lancer, her punches hit stupidly hard. Your vision explodes in stars and suddenly goes black.You're not sure how much time has passed when you regain consciousness, but Sam is now awake and stretching, as if she had just woken up as well. "Oh, morning, Cap." Sam smiles, kissing you on the forehead. "Looks like, we uh, got in some trouble again. Oh man, and it looks like you got a nasty hit, too.">Yeah... thanks for that.>Do you remember anything?>It still stings a bit. Maybe you could heal it with a kiss...?>Other
>>25919798let's just go for all of the above and call it a day
>>25919819>>Yeah... thanks for that.
>>25919819>It still stings a bit. Maybe you could heal it with a kiss...?>Do you remember anything?
>>25919819>It still stings a bit. Maybe you could heal it with a kiss...?
>>25919819>Other"...Yes. Yes I did."
>>25919819Lol, called getting punched in the face. >Do you remember anything?
>>25919819>Yeah... thanks for that.>Do you remember anything?Could have gone worse. At least those ones only got us punched out.
>>25919798Ramirez: Doing Everything and everyone. When he was arrested, he was screwing the concrete.
>>25919819>>It still stings a bit. Maybe you could heal it with a kiss...?>>Do you remember anything?
>>25919819>It still stings a bit. Maybe you could heal it with a kiss...?'>Do you remember anything?
>>25919819>Do you remember anything?Best to start the damage control for this mess right now.
>>25919819>Do you remember anything?>It still stings a bit. Maybe you could heal it with a kiss...?
>>25919819>Do you remember anything?god, this is gonna be VMQ: The Hangover Edition isn't it?
>>25919819>Yeah... thanks for that.>Do you remember anything?Okay... ouch.
>>25919819>Other>"Your reflexes are as sharp as ever, Sam.">Do you remember anything?
>>25919819>It still stings a bit. Maybe you could heal it with a kiss...?Followed by>Do you remember anything?
>>25919819>Yeah... thanks for that.>It still stings a bit. Maybe you could heal it with a kiss...?
>>25919819>Yeah... thanks for that.
>>25919865I second this
>>25919798Heloise outdrank seven Gallian Regulars and a demolition crew, then the lot of them managed to get General Wellings' staff car up on the palace roof.Elizabeth snuck into the local telegraph center and sent obscene telegraphs to the entire city.>>25919819>Yeah... thanks for that.
>>25919863....Sooo... who's missing? And we should check the roof first.
the lesson so far? Sam is cute and is like a bear when trying to wake her up. That and she packs a mean punch.
>>25919896WHY THE FUCK IS THERE A GIANT WINGED PIG IN MY BATHROOM?RAMIREZ, WHOSE BABY IS THAT?
>>25919863You say that like it's a bad thing!
>>25919924Could have been worse.She could be the type that sexually assaults in the morning.
>>25919942You say that like it's a bad thing...
>>25919942>She could be the type that sexually assaults in the morning.And you say that like it's a bad thing...
>>25919942The morning isn't over yet... At least I don't think it is. Hard to tell from inside a cell.
>>25919959>>25919961Not in a cell with the other demons inside.
>>25919942I find it funny considering how it's Mr. "Punches out knights" getting knocked out by his cute girlfriend.
>>25919978The ending... every time. I love it.
>>25920016And he drinks 'she who drinks regiments under the table' into oblivion.Karma.
>>25920016I had not even considered that.It just adds another level of hilarity to it.
>>25920029It's more Irony than Karma. But yeah.
>>25919819>>It still stings a bit. Maybe you could heal it with a kiss...?Yes, this will work perfectly!
>>25920016His cute girlfriend who blows up tanks for a living.
>>25919819"Well, it still stings a bit." You say, rubbing the bruise. "Maybe you could heal it up with a kiss...?""And you think I act like a kid." Sam laughs before leaning forward and kissing you on the cheek as well."Heh, thanks." You grin stupidly. Honestly, you don't have the heart to tell her about the true source of that injury. Plus, your pride as man was also against it. "Anyways, if you haven't noticed, we're in an MP lockup right now. Any idea how we got in here...?""Uh, well." Sam frowns, trying to recall what happened last night as well. "It's a bit fuzzy for me, but I think it involved a tank and lots of collateral damage.""Yeah, that sounds about right." You nod."Been enjoying yourselves, have you?" You hear a very formal and very familiar voice speak out from behind you. You spin around and instinctively salute General Wellings."Um, I think I can explain things, sir." You say."No need." General Wellings opens up a file and puts his reading glasses on. "According to eyewitness testimony last night, you stole Gilbert Gassenarl's personal tank, took it on a joyride through all of Randgriz, knocked down a statue of Baldren Gassenarl, tied it to the tank, set it on fire, and drove it off a cliff. Theft and destruction of military and civilian property are the least of the charges against you.">So, are we getting medals?>The MPs can overlook this, right?>We're screwed, aren't we?>Other
>>25920291>>OtherSo another day in the Demons then.
>>25920291>>The MPs can overlook this, right?
>>25920291>So, are we getting medals?Too good to pass up
>>25920291>Other"What, we only did damage to Gassenarl stuff? Sam? High five!"
>>25920291>We're screwed, aren't we?sass the enemy, be honest with our allies.
>>25920291>So, are we getting medals?
>>25920291>Other"We can explain. We did it... For justice.">So, are we getting medals?
>>25920291>So, are we getting medals?Another successful operation.
>>25920291>Other"I vaguely remember something about motorcycle jousting. Or was that a dream?"
>>25920291>Other"Is that all? Phew, you had me worried for a bit there"
>>25920291>So, are we getting medals?(Beat)>We're screwed, aren't we?
>>25920291>Qybert can give you schematics to superior tanks if you fund him, and weren't you planning on destroying the statue one way or the other anyway?
>>25920291Out of character, isn't Gassernarl the guy who's leading the GRA? If so:>Isn't that the kind of thing we get medals for?as much as I want to say "morning dad" I don't think it's the time
>>25920322This. Fuck Gassernarl.
>>25920291>"Theft and destruction of military and civilian property are the least of the charges against you."OH SHIT. BRACE FOR MAD FUTURE DAD-IN-LAW.
>>25920371Gilbert led the GRA initially, but later died and Baldren took the reigns.
>>25920291>>So, are we getting medals?Shit, go for cheek if we are that fucked.
>>25920291>So, are we getting medals?Let the silence build for a bit...>We're screwed, aren't we?
>>25920402Change my vote to this.
>>25920371>Gilbert Gassenarlyepand he looks like this
looks like our next mission is pro bono
>>25920391Yes, because the greater charge is stealing his precious daughter.
>>25920424I'm hoping we have to go hunting with him. Chance to break out dad's old rifle.
>>25920418I have to admit, that mustache is outrageous.
>>25920424We didn't steal her, we stole her heart.
We should ask Sam if she feels okay, like if she feels like she's about to throw up, and not from the alcohol.
>>25920489is this supposed to be a morning sickness joke? If so...I have no sides but I must laugh
>>25920489I don't think MC would pull THAT on us after dating her for one day. At least not without critfailing something for it.
>>25920512we critfailed so hard, that Sam impregnated Jager when she punched him
>>25920489>>25920508Infront of the dad, to boot.
>>25920291"So, we're getting medals, right?" You say jokingly, though the General just gives you a look that makes you want to wince. "We're screwed, aren't we?""Hardly." The General gives you a sly grin. "That particular tank was not yet formally captured by the Gallian army, meaning TECHNICALLY it was still GRA property, meaning you were still technically doing your jobs.""Um, thanks?" You blink. "Do you really like us that much?""Oh no, if it were up to me, I'd let you stew in here for another week. But then I'd have an angry mob on my hands if I formally punished you for this." The General sighs. "You're only in here for the standard 24 hour holding period, which expired twenty minutes ago. You're all free to go.""Hey, cool." You turn around. "Sam, let's get the rest of these losers awake and moving, and see if we can find some decent coffee.""Sure thing, Cap!" Sam smiles."Is there... something different between you two?" General Wellings asks, frowning, trying to figure out what was bothering him.>Oh, nothing to worry about, Dad.>Nope, it's totally your imagination.>Hey Sam! Your opinion on this?>Other
>>25920536Anon that's dumb stop that.
>>25920496What the hell is he wearing? Sunglasses with 19th-century esque uniform?!
>>25920559>>Hey Sam! Your opinion on this?

>>25920559We were passed out for 24 hours? One helluva bender>>25920559>Hey Sam! Your opinion on this?>>25920603We drove the tank off a cliff
>>25920559>>Other"General, while I regret the circumstances for the announcement, I am currently courting your daughter. I plan on taking exceedingly good care of her, and will continue whether or not you consent."
>>25920559>Hey Sam! Your opinion on this?Use daddy's little warrior princess to save our hide.
>>25920603the tank is gone Jim!
>>25920647Damn it jim I'm a Doctor, not a mechanic.
>>25920559>Hey Sam! Your opinion on this?Sam? SAAAAAM? THIS ISN'T SOMETHING I KNOW HOW TO DEAL WITH!
>>25920559>Hey Sam! Your opinion on this?We're on thin ice with this guy already.
>>25920559>Oh, nothing to worry about, Dad.time to push our luck
>>25920672Pretty true actually. His last and only romantic endeavor before this was politically arranged. Breaking the news to parents doesn't really come up when it was their idea in the first place.
>>25920603>Wanting to own a Gallian Tankwhat is wrong with you?
>>25920559>Hey Sam! Your opinion on this?Huddle and pray.
>>25920750>not wanting a tank like the Edelweiss
>>25920750I'm pretty sure the Type-36B Medium Tank is one...
>>25920559>Oh, nothing to worry about, Dad.Maybe intentional slip of the tongue, go!
>>25920811Since the main conflict, Gallian tanks have seemed to improved since VC1's era though they'd need some customizing if they're to go up against Imperial stuff head on.
>>25920811it's a prototype custom fitted with some of the best imperial tech salvaged from the belkan commander tankGilbert's probably a piece of shit Gallian tank considering any decent work on a tank would be focused on the Narcissus
MERCFIRST YOU RUIN MY SLEEPING PATTERNTHEN YOU RUIN MY DREAMS OF A HAPPY ENDING OF KARLA AND JAGERBUT BY GOD I MISSED YOU AND VM QUEST
>>25920559You insides freeze colder than ice. Deep down, you suspected that this would happen someday, but now that it's confronting you in the face, you honestly don't know how to deal with it. Before, all your prospective marriages and engagements were arranged by your parents, so there was no need to have to formally announce your relationships to the other family because everybody already knew everything. This was uncharted territory you were steaming into here, making you feel nervous."Hey Sam!" You yell a bit too loudly. "What's your opinion on this?!""Ah well..." Sam laughs awkwardly. She obviously still holds a healthy mix of respect and fear of her father. "MeandJageraretotallytogethernowandweloveeachotherverymuchandtheresnothingyoucandoaboutit!"Well, shit."I see." General Wellings narrows his eyes and turns his gaze on you. "For your sake I hope you live up to her, and MY, expectations.">Y-yes sir.>You're damn right I will.>Perform tactical withdrawal.>Other

It was a calm and starry night.JAEGER STURMFUHRER, LIBERATOR OF RANDGRIZ and HERO OF GALLIA, just found out he had ALL DA ALCOHOL. FOREVER. And then he drunk the fuck out of that offer, drinking his cute XO and girlfriend under the table.What happened next was a-AND THEN THEY FUCKED. SAM TORE HIS CLOTHES OFF AND THEY FUCKED. UNDER THE TABLE. THEY FUCKING BOUNCED THAT TABLE SO HARD THAT RAMIREZ GOT ORDERED TO PLEASURE THE WEEPING SWEET-TOOTH WITH HIS FIST. THEY FUCKED SO HARD SHIT WAS SO UNREAL AND EVEN ALEK AND ELSA COULD ONLY STARE IN WIDE-EYED SHOCK.SHE FUCKED HIM HARD SHE FUCKED HIS BRAINS OUT. AND THEN THEY STOLE A FUCKING TANK. AND RANDGRIZ WAS NEVER THE SAME AGAIN.THE END----------------------------------------Lewd police, etc. Bad etiquette, etc. I declare this shit non-canon because it is a YellingBird fanfic.Shit man, this, Goast, Rails und Wedidn'tdoshit Quest and MARO, LIGHTNINGBENDER in one night?

>>25920960"You're damn right I will, sir." You say, snapping your best and most profession salute that you have ever performed now and in the distant future."That's more like it." General Wellings nods and turns to Sam. "Congratulations, Samantha. I wish nothing but the best for you two.""T-thanks, Dad.""So, I don't need to do anything to earn your blessing?" You ask. "No hunting trip or 'family' outing or anything like that?""Oh, we're going on the hunting trip, all right." The General grins. "If you pull this off then I'll never lodge an objection to your relationship ever again. Meet me in my office in and hour."He then looks at the rest of the Demons sprawled around the cell."Actually, make it two."With that, General Wellings spins on his heel and marches out of the room, leaving you and Sam alone with the Demons.>Might as well get this sorry lot up and moving.>You got two hours. Ditch them and spend some time with Sam!>Other

"Wakey wakey!">get this sorry lot moving
>>25921234>>You got two hours. Ditch them and spend some time with Sam!It's still R and R time so let them figure it out while we get some rare peaceful time with her.

>>25921357>>25921397We already did that once. It didn't end very well.
>>25921357This is entirely unprofessional. Give Elsa a monocle and a handlebar mustache, and Alek whiskers. Enlist Heloise.
>>25921234>>You got two hours. Ditch them and spend some time with Sam!
>waiting for a certain Merc Command
>>25921630FUCK you got my hopes up.
>spend two hours with Merc Command
>>25921667Got your hopes up over what?
>>25921234>>Might as well get this sorry lot up and moving.
>>25921691I was in another tab, had auto on, saw that little (1), thought 'HOLY CRAP IT'S MC FINALLY'But no.It was just you.Bah humbug.
>>25921725WELL YOU KNOW WHAT, THIS QUEST GOT MY HOPES UP OVER HELOISE, SO FAIRS FAIR.
>>25921234"You know what, Sam." You grin. "We've hardly ever had time alone for ourselves ever since this whole thing started, and we're back in Randgriz! We should like, do something.""But, what about the others?" Sam asks."Well, they're all adults. I'm sure they can find their way out of an open prison cell." You shrug, then get an evil grin.>Doodles!>Nah, they've suffered enough humiliation.>Other
>>25921750>Nah, they've suffered enough humiliation.We've learned our lesson after the incident with Heloise.
>>25921750>Doodles!But only for Alek and Elsa. Maybe get Heloise up to help us, and to get revenge.
>>25921750>Nah, they've suffered enough humiliation
>>25921750>Nah, they've suffered enough humiliation.We don't need to be that mean...
>>25921750>>Nah, they've suffered enough humiliation.
>>25921750>Nah, they've suffered enough humiliation.we may sign their pay check but i don't wanna fuck with them.
>>25921750>Nah, they've suffered enough humiliation.Doodles is a cruel and unusual punishment.
>>25921750>>Doodles!Give em the doodles!
>>25921750>Doodles!But spare Heloise. It'll be priceless!
>>25921750>Nah, they've suffered enough humiliation.
>>25921750>>Doodles!why would there be any other options?but leave our signature on one of them, so they know who to yell at
>>25921750>Doodles!Their revenge will be petty but hilarious
>>25921750>>Doodles!Whats a military unit without some pranking.
>>25921831Doodles!If our Belkain Knight is among us, write 'HONOR' on her forehead
FOR THE VALKYRUR'S SAKE, YOU PEOPLE.WE DID THE DRAWING THING BEFORE.IT ENDED POORLY.ALBERT EINSTEIN SAID THAT INSANITY IS DOING THE SAME THING OVER AND OVER AND EXPECTING A DIFFERENT RESULT.
>>25921750>>Nah, they've suffered enough humiliation.Man, I wish we saw what Isolde was doing then...
>>25921750RAMIREZ! DOODLE ON ALEK AND ELSA!!
>>25921750>Nah, they've suffered enough humiliation.This isn't SWQ no matter how much certain people may try.
>>25921866Theres a difference.They're hungover
>>25921750"Compromising positions, Sam! Let's move them into compromising positions!"
>>25921750>OtherAsk Sam whether she thinks it's time for liberal application of doodles
>>25921750Actually, you get second thoughts about doodling on their faces, remembering how that whole thing with Heloise turned out. "Come on, let's go." You say taking Sam's hand and leading her out of the cell. The pair of MPs on duty salute you as you pass and you nod to them in respect."So, what do you we do?" Sam asks.>FREE ACTION
>>25922126FIND ROMANTIC LOCATION. HOLD HANDS WITH SAM
>>25922126Let's go to the beach!
>>25922126We're a new couple. I know EXACTLY what we're going to do. We're going to do what all new couples do. Hold hands in a public park.
>>25922126BREAKFAST.In GuPQ and VMQA PROPER GALLIAN BREAKFASTBREAKFAST OF CHAMPIONS
>>25922126>Get cleaned up and have a real date
>touch her buttFeeling frisky
>>25922126Well, I don't expect too much to be open right now. So something simple like taking Wojtek to the park or something.
>>25922158Funnily, we just finished eating breakfast for late dinner in SW89 too>>25922166with holding hands
>>25922126commence banging on the roof of the general's house.
>>25922126>Get food. Preferably for free from grateful citizens. Also, hold hands.
>>25922144Come on, dude, let's at least TRY and keep this G-rated.Let's take Wojtek on a walk.
>>25922126Take Wojtek on a walk in the park together. Hold hands
>>25922126What >>25922174 said. Wojtek and holding hands!
>>25922126Get something to eat. And coffee, drink of the gods.
>>25922201We will hold hands if we damn well choose to!
No one even thinks about cleaning up? I doubt miltary uniforms worn during a drunken rucus and 24 hours straight afterwards would smell nice.
So...>Shower>Get coffee>Grab dog>Go to park>hold handsYou lewd people.Is about the plan?
Maybe we go to a bath house together.
>>25922232We'll do that when we swing by to pick up the dog
>>25922232We're going to be heading out in a few hours so there's no point. We should make the best use of this short time.
>>25922271I was under the impression the hunting trip would be today, not that there was a mission.
>>25922201PG-13 = touch her buttThen act innocent
>>25922126>WALK BEARDOG>HOLD HANDS>SCREAM AT KARLA
>>25922303That is the mission. We hunt the most dangerous game.A miserable little pile of secrets
>>25922303I was under the impression that "Hunting trip" was a euphemism for "I need you to help me fuck up some more dudes".
Just caught up.20/10 thread would read and still be butthurt about Karla again.
>>25922126Leave note about 2 hour limit to Demons and where to assemble.Then, get big breakfast, feed each other while making loving cooing noises to each other.
>>25922313Still felt we should have waited until we dealt with Karla but all things considering this is a good progression of growth on Jaeger's part.but walk the dog.
>>25922358Pretty sure it's an actual hunting trip. Probably for boar.
MC is this hunting trip an actual hunting trip or a mission in disguise?
>>25922421Can we take Wojtek's older brother along?
>"Oh, we're going on the hunting trip, all right." The General grins. "If you pull this off then I'll never lodge an objection to your relationship ever again. Meet me in my office in and hour."It's a mission... for fucks sakes people. Are you all that dense.
If we kill an animal's mother, we will have to kill its children
>>25922449Or maybe his other brother
>>25922446The Biggest Game.Belkan Knight
>>25922459Hell let's just kill all the animals.Animals being an euphemism for imps.
>>25922479Ovcharkas are fucking massive. They can fight GRIZZLY BEARS and win.
>>25922421>>25922455This is the line that got me. It just screams "I've got an HVT I need eliminated and if you pull this off then you've got infinite brownie points with me".
>>25922492And the puppies are some of the cutest things on earth. I believe they are the best breed to get your daughter in their mid teens. They'll love the cute puppy, and as the relationships start getting more serious, the dog just keeps growing and growing.
>>25922126Checking your options, you suppose that you've got enough time to get cleaned up, get some breakfast, and even take Wotjek for a walk, and still have plenty of time to make it to the General's office.The first issue is finding a place to get cleaned up. Gotta look presentable, after all.>Head for the local base.>Go to the Vergeltung.>See if there's anybody you still know in town.>Other
>>25922587>See if there's anybody you still know in town.EXPOSITION PLES

>>25922449New life dream:>Obtain caucasian shepherd>Obtain saddle>Ride like the wind
>>25922587>Go to the Vergeltung.If it's here. Do it. Less fuss. Plus it has most if not all our stuff.
>>25922587>Go to the Vergeltung.Gotta get our best dress uniform
>>25922587>Go to the Vergeltung.Make it fast, we've got to hold hands with Sam.
>>25922587>Go to the Vergeltung
>>25922587>>Go to the Vergeltung.
>>25922587>Go to the Vergeltung.
>>25922587>See if there's anybody you still know in town.Maybe we'll run into a new (old) face. Might even get some news or something.
So. Anyone want to talk about the socioeconomic state of the Balkan states while we wait?
>>25923224MC must be busy with something else today or something.
>>25923224It's shit.And I think that sums it up pretty nicely.
>>25923292Pretty much. I wonder what happened to MC though
>>25923340Didn't he say he had a special surprise or something along those lines?
>>25923340Maybe he fell asleep....I can't believe I typed that with a straight face.
>>25922587You decide to just head back to the Vergeltung, which is docked on the lake shore. It's a bit far, but it's familiar, plus that's where Wotjek is at anyways."Ah, it's good to see you, Captain." Davos nods as you step aboard. "We heard some rather 'interesting' stories about your post battle celebrations.""Yeah, well, they're probably true for all I know." You sigh. "Just stopping by to get get cleaned up. Gotta meet the General again today.""A good idea, sir." Davos nods."You should get off this ship sometime, Davos. You're in Randgriz! Go see the sights, or maybe woo some girl who's got a thing for grizzled sea captains..."Davos laughs. "I'll think about it."The Vergeltung's shower facilities are a bit limited, and not nearly as luxurious as anything you'd find on land, but they were functional and had hot water, which was all you really needed. Twenty minutes later and you're cleaned up with a fresh uniform. Sam, being a girl, naturally takes a bit longer, but she's out ten minutes after you're done. She's still in her normal getup, in uniform with little to no makeup, but for some reason she just seems more attractive to you than ever."Hey, Cap, you ready? You're kinda zoning out there.""Oh, yeah." You nod. Then you hearing a barking sound signalling that Wojtek has arrived. He was thankfully still a manageable size, but you fear that one day he'll grow too big to even fit in the Vergeltung."So where to now?" Sam asks, carrying Wojtek in one arm and looping her other one around yours. "I'm actually really hungry.">Let's get something fancy.>BIG GUTS BIG BREAKFAST.>Other
>>25923386>>BIG GUTS BIG BREAKFAST.

>>25923386>>BIG GUTS BIG BREAKFAST.As if there was any other choice.
>>25923386>Let's get something fancy.preferably with still-large portions
>>25923386>>BIG GUTS BIG BREAKFAST.Today is breakfast Quest day.
>>25923386>BIG GUTS BIG BREAKFAST."Betcha I can eat more pancakes than you.""Oh, you're on, Cap."
>>25923386>>BIG GUTS BIG BREAKFAST.Smells like...winged bacon.
>>25923386>BIG GUTS BIG BREAKFAST.Simple joys.
>>25923386>BIG GUTS BIG BREAKFAST.Now the question is... what do we get?
>>25923386>BIG GUTS BIG BREAKFAST.We're out with our puppy. You don't take puppies to fancy restaurants, it's impolite to the other guests, so we go somewhere relaxed, comfortable, family run if possible, with massive portions. We'll ask them to get something for Wojtek and let him run around a bit to get pet by everyone.
>>25923487Bacon, Eggs, Hashbrown, and Ham in between French Toast covered with Maple Syrup.
>>25923523...Fuck it I'm going to I-Hops all these quest with breakfast food... Goddammit.
>>25923523I like how you think. Don't forget massive amounts of butter.
>>25923487Bacon, more bacon, a six egg omelette stuffed with the works for each of us, smoked ham, french toast with maple syrup, hashbrowns, a couple cups of black coffee, and whatever the special is today.
>>25923523You forgot biscuits and gravy and cheese grits
>>25923386>BIG GUTS BIG BREAKFAST.
>>25923386"BIG GUTS BIG BREAKFAST." You bellow. After that all night bender, you are absolutely STARVING. Thankfully, you know a place you can get a big, hearty Gallian breakfast, assuming it didn't bombed or anything during the civil war."Ooooh ooooh! Are we going to Jenner's?" Sam squeals."You are damn right we are." You nod.Fortunately, it's not too far from where are, so you and Sam can just walk there with Wojtek in tow. Sam is taking every opportunity to cuddle up close to you as you walk, earning a few stares and points, but you ignore those. Finally, you reach Jenner's Diner, yours and Sam's favorite breakfast spot. Fortunately, the place is still standing and open."Jager!" The owner, the titular Jenner, grins from behind the counter. "I haven't seen you in forever! How have you been?""Oh, you know, traveling the world, kicking ass, the usual." You shrug."I suppose you've been trying out all those foreign breakfasts, too?""Yeah, but they're nothing compared to yours." You say."Damn fucking right. Same as before, two of the usuals?""Double portions, please." You add."Got it."During your travels, you've had some pretty good breakfasts in Albion and Ustio, but neither of them could compare to a good old Gallian breakfast. Scrambled eggs with sausages and potato pancakes. However, you've always heard of Headcase boasting about the superiority of Emmerian breakfasts, but you've yet to see one for yourself, though he promised once he's got the time he'll show the Demons what he means.You and Sam start wolfing down your breakfasts along with little Wojtek, who has his own plate to eat from. >Want to talk about anything?
>>25923789SO SAM HOW MANY KIDS DO YOU WANT
>>25923789One day, we must try Elsa's STEWED BEAR.
>>25923789Plans after we deal with Karla and retire.
>>25923789Talk about Matt and Artya. How they're great kids and all, and you wish you had some just li-.Then drop spaghetti.
>>25923789so, this is probably a pretty heavy topic, but what do you want out of this relationship?
>>25923789Ask her if she's heard anything else from Artya and Matt. Then segue into how much PDA is going to be kept in check/not in check in front of the squad maybe?I think we should address the whole Karla thing eventually, but I don't feel that now is the time.
>>25923848thisI don't think you can get more Jager than this
>>25923789Matt and Artya seem like a good topic since we just recently got news about them. Maybe a bit of what to do after this GRA business is over.
>>25923857Let's ask this though in a more lighter tune or mood
>>25923848>Talk about Matt and Artya. How they're great kids and allI'm good with this part. Not so much the rest. >>25923860Yeah, agreed. It's something that does need to be talked about, but now? Over breakfast? No.
>>25923789"Sam, my hips are fucking sore from last night. What the hell happened?"
>>25923789"So anyways," You say between mouthfuls of food. "While we were on the Vergeltung, some mail finally caught up with us. It's actually about Matt and Artya.""Really?" Sam's face brightens up. "Are they fine? What have they been doing?""Well, they can't really say what they've been up to due to security reasons, but they've definitely been kicking GRA ass all over the south." You nod. "And, heh, Matt's letter didn't say anything about it, but Artya says she and Matt are a couple now.""Really!?" Sam nearly drops her fork, startling Wojtek for a bit. "That's so sweet!""It just makes me wonder how they, you know... with that mask on...""You do realize that she can take it off whenever she likes, right?" Sam sighs."Riiight...." You shrug. "Well, from the looks of it, your dad's going to have to deal with a lot of grandki- aw shit."Sam bursts out in laughter at your show of awkwardness. "Aw man, that's not something I want to deal with for a few years, at least.""Y-yeah." You nod, chugging your entire cup of coffee in an effort to wash the awkwardness away.And with that, you're finally finished. You pay your bill and say your farewells to Jenner and you're off again. Wojtek, now with food in his belly, gets a sudden burst of energy and starts tugging at his leash, ready to go.>Let's go the park. Nice and relaxing.>Let's go to the palace. Never did get a good chance to see it up close.>Let's check out the base. We're going to have to go there anyways.>Other
>>25924181>Let's go the park. Nice and relaxing.Just a nice walk in the park. Also>When did ArtyaxMatt happen?
>>25924181>>Let's go the park. Nice and relaxing.
>>25924181>Let's go to the palace. Never did get a good chance to see it up close.Because the idea of a giant puppy galumphing around the palace and giving no fucks sounds awesome.
>>25924181>Let's go the park. Nice and relaxing.Can't be an annoying new couple flaunting PDAs if you're not in Public!
>>25924181>Let's go the park. Nice and relaxing.HAND HOLDING TIME>>25924194in the last side-story with them IIRC. It was after the GRA attack on Lanseal. She showed Matt her face and he kissed the girl
>>25924260this is the reference pic he used
>>25924304THATS EVEN MORE ADORABLE.
>>25924234>She showed Matt her face and he kissed the girlI think he did a little more than just kiss her...
>>25924327Its pretty good.
>>25924362If he did more we got fade-to-black
>>25924181>Let's go to the palace. Never did get a good chance to see it up close.
>>25924384Well they at least shared a bed for the night. I'm not sure if they "shared the bed" or not, but damn if sleeping on the same mattress isn't more than just kissing.
>>25924181Wojtek leads you on toward the park, which is understandable since trees and grass are a bit hard to come by in the confines of a u-boat. Wojtek runs and rolls around the grass like the dog he is, basically oblivious to everything else around him. You and Sam just look on and laugh at Wojtek's antics. >roll 1d20
>>25924362>>25924384He is perfect gentlemen and did no such thing other than sleeping in the same bed as a comrade in order to help ease their trauma.
Rolled 19>>25924428Rolling for something.
Rolled 6>>25924428oh gods please
>>25924445>>25924451>>25924460Phew...guess those double 1s I rolled were just to start off with shenanigans?
>>25924362Not really all that was implied was some chaste holding and kissing. Nothing like what Elsa did when she first saw Alek in person.
>>25924445You come across several of the Demons as well, which is a bit of a pleasant surprise, though you don't mention the fact that you and Sam ditched them in the lockup."Oh, hey Tarin, I see you're up and about." You say, catching her skulking behind some trees. "I'm guessing you weren't totally hammered like the rest of us were last night? You weren't in the lockup.""I'm just good enough not to get caught." Tarin shrugs. "Hey, no need to rub it in our faces." Ramirez sighs, rubbing his forehead. "I don't even remember what happened. I just hear everybody calling out my name all the time.""And I've got the distinct feeling I drove a tank that wasn't mine." Headcase frowns. "These hands... they just don't feel right.""I warned you all to keep an eye on your alcohol consumption." Isolde tuts.>Hey, this is cool and all, but I got a meeting to get to.>Guys, you cannot BELIEVE what we've been up to last night.>Other

>>25924722>Guys, you cannot BELIEVE what we've been up to last night.Party recap is go!
Ramrizez take down that statue with your bare hands!Also, I think Tarin secretly wants to get caught. She's been waiting for it to happen. She tests people, and looks for challenges.
>>25924926So... she has a capture fetish?
>>25924722>>Guys, you cannot BELIEVE what we've been up to last night.I want to see their faces
>>25924722>Guys, you won't believe what we've been up to last night..."AND MY HIPS ARE SORE."
>>25924946Um... not exactly I don't think. Besides "capture fetish" sounds like some kind of weird kinky S&M subtopic. No, I mean she's probably very competitive (not quite like Elsa) and also has issues with trusting people (which is probably common for Darcsen). It's more like she tests people because she's used to being let down. Looking to get "caught" was referring to someone giving her a challenge and proving themselves to be reliable. That's probably what's behind her playing sneaky-sneaky all the time. But this is just an opinion.
>>25924946>thoughts go back to all of those obvious fetishy pictures of women hog-tiedI should hope not. I've read ero manga about stuff like that, and it never ends well.
>>25924722"I think I can fill in the gaps." You say. "Apparently, we all stole a tank, joyrode it around Randgriz for several hours, knocked down a statue of some asshole, tied it onto the tank, set the whole thing on fire, and drove it off a cliff.""Oh, so that's why I smell like burnt ragnite." Heloise sighs."That actually sounds pretty cool." Ramirez nods. "Though I wonder why may hands hurt so goddamn much.""Maybe you tore it down with your bare hands." Julia shrugs."I can actually see that happening." Headcase nods.You want to stay and hang out with your squadmates a bit more, but a tug your sleeve and the sight of Sam tapping her watch means that time is up."Well then, carry on, you all. I've got a meeting to get to." You say.The Demons say their goodbyes and you and Sam head over to Army HQ, which is just now being repopulated by the staff that were forced to abandon it. It's not hard to find General Welling's office, as it is the most busy place in the entire base. You press yourself against the wall to make way for a large herd of staffers as they shuffle past, and you enter the office to see a very tired looking General Wellings. Like Lynch's office, Wellings' office was bare and Spartan, though you attribute you that more to him just recently moving in rather than any aesthetic taste."General.""Ah, Captain Sturmfuhrer. Come in." General Wellings sighs. "It looks like you've cleaned yourself up rather well in such a short amount of time.""Thanks." You say. "Anyways, what's this 'hunting trip' you were talking about?""Ah yes, well..." General Wellings rolls out a map of Gallia on his desk. "You see, even though we retook Randgriz and have effectively broken the back of the GRA, their leader, Baldren Gassenarl, is still unaccounted for. Intelligence suggests that he's fled south where he still has forces loyal to him.""So he's our hunting target?"(cont)
>>25925186we better be hunting him with our Dads old big game rifle
>>25925186Ah, the most dangerous game. Bueno.
>>25925186remember when he gets onto that little super boat of his? Let's sink it with the sub. Or at the very least, blow up the propellers and rudders.
So did Julia just say Ramirez is good with his hands?"Ramirez! Make me a macaroni necklace with that string!"
>>25925186"That's right." Wellings nods. "I've got men combing all of southern Gallia for him, but there's one place where's likely to be holed up in."He then points to the one place on the map you were dearly hoping he wouldn't."That's right, we're assaulting Castle Gassenarl." General Wellings says."So, in order for you to bless my relationship with Sam, you want me and my men to assault one of the most heavily fortified castles in all of Gallia? A stronghold that managed to hold its own against the Imps during the invasion?""That's right." Wellings nods. "With the bulk of the GRA either destroyed, scattered, or surrendering, Castle Gassenarl is at its weakest. Even if Baldren ends up not being there, we deny him his last stronghold that he can use to rebuild his forces.""So, what's the plan, then? Surely you don't expect us to charge head long into the castle.""It'll be a night attack. We'll be having supporting forces pushing in and drawing their fire while you and a another specialist team infiltrate the castle from the river and take out the defenses from the inside.""And what exactly is this specialist team?" You ask."Classified. You'll be informed once you're deployed.""Of course.""We'll be moving out in two days. Make sure your men are ready by then.""Of course, sir.""Good. I'll release your payment for the last mission. Dismissed."(cont)
>>25925375and the specialist team is Matt, Mac, and Artya
>>25925375Awww snap time for a reunion
>>25925375>specialist teamClass Z ahoy!Also, good thing we bought that Starlight.
>>25925256Fuck yeah, Anderson Wheeler 500 Nitro Express Double Rifle.
>>25925375I don't think our tanks are going to be of much use in infiltrating. And here I was thinking of getting the M36 Heavy.Perhaps we should get the BIG BOOM Team?
>>25925375Looks like its time to send the GRA an explosive middle finger right up their asses.
>>25925375PAYMENT: 6000 creditsUPKEEP: 3260 creditsTOTAL: 2740TREASURY: 11630>Let's just hang out in Randgriz for now.>Let's check in on the Castle.>Other
>>25925375>dat large dock leading right into the shoals
>>25925449We're infiltrating via river. Remember our tanks can handle the water. Think of the possibilities.
I think we now know why he didn't use his castle during VC2.But didn't MC do something like this as a sneak peek? I ask as well I'm getting a very strong feeling of Deji Vu.
>>25925461>Let's check in on the Castle.And chat with Cordelia
>>25925461>Let's check in on the Castle.Gotta grab dad's rifle after all.
>>25925461>Let's check in on the Castle.They might let us use weapons from the Royal Armoury.
>>25925461>Let's just hang out in Randgriz for now.
>>25925461Awwww, yeaaaaah, more money!>Let's check in on the Castle.
>>25925449>implying you can't do a sneaking mission with tanksYou're gonna go loud eventually anyways.
>>25925375My Artya sense is tingling!Also, looks like some infiltration.Or you know... we could just buzz bomb the place... but I'd rather do something fun.
>>25925461>Let's check in on the Castle.
>>25925461>Let's check in on the Castle.BUDGET 6,000 CREDITS FOR CASTLE RESTORATION
>>25925461>>Let's check in on the Castle.
>>25925500I was considering more climbing those sheer cliffs but I stand corrected.
>>25925500MC, how much for more Gallian-Qs, now that the prototype is complete?
>>25925290I thought Fire Boggle was the most dangerous game.
>>25925548remind me, how quiet is the Gallian Q?
>>25925375>6.2mbWhat? Since when has /tg/ had the ability to post fuckhuge images the likes of which could rival /hr/?
>>25925579Almost silent when we were standing next to Tarin at a range.
>>25925369She will treasure it always <3
>>25925590I think around time pdfs were allowed to be uploaded... maybe?
>>25925462It's not a dock, it's a hangar.And not shoals, but a field with tanks and people on it.
>>25925647Oh.Oooohhhhhhhhhh, I see i now!
Anyone got the upgrade list?
>>25925681We're kinda not doing that right now... so just wait until he puts it out. I'm sure it will be out date anyways, the one someone would get you.
So Elsa and Alek on overwatch. Julia, Headcase, Sam and Isolde in reserve?Send in Tarin, Brilliant, Ramirez. Have them escort Heloise who carries the demolition charges.What do with Elizabeth?And Jager can punch someone.
>>25925548>>25925579Beyond that, we built the starlight scope.We might be able to get NV goggles.
>>25925752But NVGs, even modern ones, are invariably shit.
>>25925749>What do with Elizabeth?Infiltration. Prep the way for our team.
>>25925769She still has that maid uniform, right?
>>25925768Hey seeing 30 feet means seeing 6 times as far as the other guy
>>25925768A single eye flipdown sight will be a good aid for the team, though. Especially since I doubt they will have access to such things and have to rely on Mk. 1 Eyeballs.
>>25925769Might be risky. GRA stronghold will have tighter security. They won't be easily fooled and would catch something suspicious.That being said... it would be fun.What kind of kit would we send her in with?
>>25925805Until they, inevitably, break. Then you're Stevie Wonder.
>>25925855We still have those rerolls as insurance and this sort of mission is her element.For kit, maybe a standard issue GRA uniform.>>25925803Yes but im not sure if they have maids in this one. Maybe she'll find another for her collection.
So I'm analyzing the picture for how best we could assault it. I'm going to share a few ideas that I've had.1- Buzzbomb into the bottom of the outcropping tower nearest to the river. Hopefully that'd create a nice little breach to get in. We dart forward from the river into the hole, work our way in from there. Mortar should lay down a smoke screen down near the tank hanger.2-Scale the wall with infantry up to a gun port, apply a bit of explosives, and enter from there. 3- Head downstream until just before the waterfall, then move around into the woods near the hangar. Scale the hangar, drop down on the opposite side. Work way up through the treeline into the castle.
Will be back in about 20 mins
>>25925855A Delisle carbine for sentry removal, some C4 equivalent. Hand grenades. Suppressed handgun and combat knife. A sneaking suit with complementary bandana.We go full kit, we probably won't see any problems.
>>25925908We're going in silent first, though. Don't think we should be deploying the buzzbomb immediately.>>25925935I'm thinking we should have headcase follow us on foot. There must be some vehicle he can jac->Ramirez...Nevermind, Ramirez can handle any and all equipment. Including ARMOUR.
>>25925902Might have something with using a GRA uniform.Also forgot we'll probably have Mac, Matt and Artya for this mission.Be nice if we could give Elsa a Gallian Q with a starlight - remember she gets bonuses when stealthed.
>>25925855Right now, the GRA is scattered and on the retreat. I think it would be easy to infiltrate Elizabeth with a cover story of being from a routed unit that was presumed wiped out. Unless the ties between the GRA and the Federation come to light, then we can just infiltrate her as that ambassador's aide.
>>25925988The Starlight is dependant on what time the raid will be commencing--we don't want our boys lugging around any more equipment than they already need. If it's early dawn, I don't think we'll need it. However, if we're planning this offensive for the dead of night or even as early as dusk, it'll be essential.
>>25926016I though it was a confirmed night raid.
>>25925988Be nice if we could give Artya a Starlight, too.
>>25926016>"It'll be a night attack. We'll be having supporting forces pushing in and drawing their fire while you and a another specialist team infiltrate the castle from the river and take out the defenses from the inside."So yes. We'll be using the starlight scopes.
>>25926048If it's anything like this. No. Just slow her down.
>>25926076Was there ever a time in the history of infantry warfare where future soldier concepts weren't large, heavy, and unwieldy?
>>25926048Did Class Z get issued any stealth specific kit?
>>25926102Nope. Imagine the first guy they wanted to put metal armor on."You want me to carry that heavy shit around in a battle?! You're fucking crazy!"
>>25926102Napoleonic Wars. Admittedly the reservoirs were kinda finicky, which is why they dropped it, but still...
>>25925908I think I see access roads behind the hangar in the hills near the sentry cannons. So aside from the river, we have another possible approach>>25926016Night attack. Read Merc Command's post.Also what if we dressed Headcase up in a GRA uniform and set him loose?"Hey man, I really dig the mods on your tank. You mind if, like, I take a look under the hood?"
>>25926152Nah. Bring plenty of ammo, stealth to the tanks, choose the biggest and baddest for Ramirez to jack, then sabotage the rest. A full clip of Gallian-Q into the control panels should do the trick.That or having Helly fuck with their engines.
>>25925461It's simple enough to catch a train back up to northern Gallia, and from there it's a relatively short drive back to your estate."Back so soon?" Kincaid scoffs as he sees you and the Demons pull up. "First you disappear for two years, and then you come back and can't very well leave this place alone!""Yeah well, I have new obligations now." You shrug. "How's the reconstruction going?""I'd say about sixty to seventy percent complete." Your huntsman points to the castle. "The main builds have been rebuilt. We just need to do the walls and the towers next, which are the trickiest ones.""That's good." You nod.>Let's go find Qyburn.>Let's go find Grandma.>Other
>>25926242>>Let's go find Qyburn.Need gear.
>>25926242>Let's go find Grandma.We need to find out Grandmother and tell her about Sam! After picking her up in a hug.
>>25926242>Let's go find Grandma.Alright, lets her it. We know she has something to say and we're going to hear anyways might as well be now.
>>25926242>Let's go find Grandma.Tell Grandma the news first. See if we need to allocate funds for refugees.Then:>Let's go find Qyburn.
>>25926251>>>Let's go find Qyburn
>>25926242>Let's go find Grandma.well, family first
>>25926190I guess we could have Helli stuff taffy over all of the gunsights and periscopes. We need to disable everything, but in a way that doesn't make noise.
>GrandmaFigure out what gear we want while we be a good dutiful grandson. It'd be rude not to say hello. Then we can see Qyburn
>Let's go find QyburnDakka first.
>>25926242>Let's go find Grandma.Ha HA! Time to invest in our estate
>>25926287We couldnt hear the silenced rifles while standing next to it.I think we can empty clips into control panels it with impunity.
>>25926242>OtherFind dad's old rifle.
>>25926242>>Let's go find Qyburn.Need shinies.
>>25926287Disconnecting wires and hoses is noisy?
>>25926242>find both>both are having delicious high tea>See you stroll in with Wojtek and holding Sam's hands>Grandma, you're not fucking psychic or anything, are you
>>25926303The resulting explosion would be noisy, though.>Grandma
>>25926358Even if the console is not on?Thought it'll just fuck it up enough that no one could turn on the tank.
>>25926303Firing might not make much noise but the bullet hitting metal will. Plus firing a gun inside a metal box is a pretty bad idea, the bullet could ricochet and end up anywhere.>>25926348Yeah that would be much easier than using a gun. It wouldn't be too hard to mess up the controls if you just went to town on it with a pair of bolt cutters. Painting over the gunsights is still a good backup plan because they could still use the hull MGs even if they can't move the tank.
>>25926242>>Let's go find Grandma.
>>25926409>RicochetPoint. Should save that for larger targets then.Or sabotage the trigger mechanism with plastic explosives, primed to explode when pulled.
>>25926242You decide to go find Grandma first, considering she's the one in charge here, after all. You also kind of want to find out just where she's getting all the resources and materials to effect these castle repairs. However, you still appreciate the effort."Ah, so you really did remember to come and visit!" Grandma beams as you approach where she's set up her little table and tea set. "It's always so nice to see a grandson come visit once in a while.""Yeah, well, I had some free time." You laugh. "Oh right, and I suppose I should tell you that me and Sam are together, now.""You mean you weren't before?" Grandma gives you a sly, knowing grin."Was it really that obvious?" You sigh."I would've been more shocked if you restarted your relationship with that Karla Hohenzollern." Grandma says disdainfully. "Your parents truly did have the strangest tastes in girls.""Anyways, I was just checking in on how the reconstruction was going." You say, desperate to change the subject. "Oh, well enough, I suppose." Grandma leans back. "These Darcsens are a very resourceful bunch. I think we'll be back to our original condition in a couple of months or so. However, I have some ideas on how to expand this castle, though I'd need to have an audience with the Archduchess."Actually, we did kinda just save her life." You say."Ah, so she owes you a favor." Grandma smiles. Favors can be such valuable things.">Okay, what are you planning.>Have you seen Qyburn around?>Other
>>25926409I think we could set up primary objectives and secondary objectives for our team mates, like first Heloise sabotages tanks in the yard. Her secondary objective might be to rdx a main gate for when our tanks need to roll in, securing both an entrance and exit.But we could get into some dirty dozen stuff.
>>25926599>Okay, what are you planning.ok, now I'm curious
>>25926599>Okay, what are you planning.In dangerous jobs the elderly should be feared. And being nobility? Hoooo boy.
>>25926599>>Okay, what are you planning.I'm curious.
>>25926599>Okay, what are you planning.Grandma grandma grandma...Scary woman.
>>25926599>>Okay, what are you planning.
>>25926599>Okay, what are you planning."Grandmother dear, you know that I'm terrible at politics, so just tell me whatever scheming you're up to now."
>>25926599>Okay, what are you planning.Lets hear it.
>>25926623Good idea. Although I'm thinking teams of 2 or 3. Safety in numbers and all.
>>25926599>>Okay, what are you planning.>>Have you seen Qyburn around?
>>25926599>"Grandma, what are you planning and may I have some of that?"
>>25926599>Okay, what are you planning.What are the chances she's planning on turning the surrounding land on the estate into a Darcsen refugee camp?
>>25926599>Okay, what are you planningJesus, the old battleaxe sounds like my grandma. Scary woman.
>>25926738I don't know. She's up to some serious conniving though. It'll be big.
>>25926738Please, you give her too little credit.Shes not a social worker, she obviously intends to set up the place as a haven for Darscen to encourage them to flock here. Then utlise their expertise to transform the local area into a major centre of Industry, unfettered by discriminatory policies.And Stormfuher granny will lord over all of it as a benevolent overseer, and see that all is good.
>>25926807The reason why she didn't like Karla was because she felt the Sturmfuhrers needed to rise to power on their own strength rather than marrying into royalty. Sounds like the kind of move she'd make, actually.
>>25926807Will there be cookies in this slightly delusional vision of the future? Please let there be cookies!
>>25926662Could Jagger infiltrate posing as a GRA officer with Beta? How far could this masquerade go?But yeah, thinking of teams:Alek and Elsa is obvious.Was thinking Brilliant and Helloise, who could later link up with Tarin and Ramirez (and possibly Artya)Matt and Mike would be bro-snipers.Julia and Head case in reserve, with possibly Sam and Isolde accompanying.
>>25926882Its not that unlikely.A single Darcsen? Easy to maginalise. A town/city of them working together to produce engineering marvels? Impossible to ignore.In a single stroke, she gains the gratitude of the Darcsen people who have been mistreated, the loyalty of the people settled on the Stormfuhrer holdings and influence and political leverage over lords, the gallian Armed Forces and anyone who wishes to purchase the finished products.That she'll still collect rent is the icing on the cake.Granny is a very shrewd and scary.
>>25927000I think Jaeger's face is just too well known to infiltrate. For teams I was thinking of the following.Alek and Elsa, Sniper couple extrordinareBrilliant and HelloiseRamirez and Isolde/TarinSam and JaegerTarin/Isolde and Artya
>>25927039Granny Sturnfuhrer is a badass and she knows it. The fact that Jaeger is an INTERNATIONAL HERO OF EUROPA is probably icing on this totally badass cake.Also you're assuming she'll collect rent. RENT IN HUGS AND NOT COLD, HARD CASH.
>>25927039No I don't doubt it. I was just joking about "benevolent overlords" baking cookies.Why not be equitable? Give the darcsens a stake in this future they would help us build. Make them partners, that way they can hold their heads high and share in the prosperity?
>>25927113I'm quite sure thats part of it. She already has them helping to repair parts of the estate.
>>25927113>>25927074>mfw Grandma Sturmfuhrer helps a few promising Darcsen engineers start up an industrial manufacturing company>mfw said manufacturing company becomes the primary weapons maker in post-EWII Europa>mfw the profits from that will go to making Jager's estate into an Outer Heaven>mfw everything is leading into Metal Gear Valkyria Chronicles>mfw I have no f
>>25927155Heloise and Tarin are out. They're Darcsens. No way they'd get anywhere near Gassenarl, not even as help.
>>25927198We could do like Cordelia used to and have them wear wigs.
>>25927198Doesn't mean they can't do work behind the scenes. Besides this is an infiltration. If Train gets spotted then she hasn't been doing her job right.
>>25927274Tarin - goddamn autocorrect.
>>25927074Rent shall be paid in hugs! Grandma Sturmfuhrer the benevolent overlord has made her decision!>>25927185>mfw Karla invades outer heaven (again) and this becomes Valkyrian Chronicles: the phantom pain.
>>25927292but muh stealth trains
>>25926599Don't die on us Granny! Granny?!>sob.gif"KaaaaaaaaaARLAAAAAAAAA!"
>>25926599did MC die
>>25927693Did we have our second win?
>>25927736I hope so.
>>25927736Cliffhangers aren't wins.
>>25927768True. But at the same time out lasting MC is rare thing and should be enjoyed.
>>25927784Kind of disappointing after the break though.
>>25927801It has been 2 hours. I hereby declare the victory of the followers of this thread over the evil forces of Merc Command. We have outlasted him, my brothers.
>>25928096Shame. I wanted to ask MC for permission to run a spinoff quest based on his, once he'd finished today.
>>25928096but will the victory last?
Sorry guys, my internet unexpectedly crapped out and it is only now coming back online.The quest will continue on Wednesday night, 6-7pm PST. See you then!
>>25928265Thanks for running anyway, Merc. Good to have you back.
>>25928265we didn't win
>>25928265Hey MC!take a gander at >>25928222
>>25928265No problem, MC. I'm just glad the long wait is over. 6 days is too long without a VMQ thread.
>>25928283Sure, go for it, I guess.
