Mission archives:http://suptg.thisisnotatrueending.com/archive.html?tags=Ghost%20QuestResource list:http://pastebin.com/MWbqjUDPTwitter:@GhostAdjutantYou were a ghost operative of the Terran Dominion, under Emperor Arcturus Mengsk. Your Codename is Delta Phoenix. You received a transmission from Korhal. "The Emperor is Dead. Long live the Emperor. "It seems like a lifetime since the fall of Korhal disabled your neural inhibitor and you went rogue. With the help of a rogue Dominion Marine, Jacob Henderson, you and your small crew secured a Gorgon-Class battlecruiser you now call The Daluke. The Dominion, bounty hunters, and criminal scum alike are all after you with a massive 1.5 billion credit bounty on your head. But they're going to have to earn it, first.Your last mission was assassinating Don Javelito for the local government. However it turns out the government was less than open about the details, and Javelito was a freedom fighter against a corrupt upper class. His surviving mother and nephew- also the son of a gunslinger- are aboard your stolen Valkyrie that is currently being detained by New Albuquerque police forces.
Adjutant A.I. Online. Loading mission details, Delta Phoenix.You make back for the dropship and land at the spaceport. Your men have been instructed to disallow any boarding action until you arrive. When you do you are greeted by several men in gray suits with bowler hats and rather expensive looking pocketwatch chains dangling from their suit pockets. The first of them approaches you. >"Evenin', miss commander of the Daluke. Governor Lakas sends his most heartfelt thanks, and has already transferred the funds to your account as promised."You remain silent, as you know there's more.>"However, bein' such a justice-orientated individual, the Governor noticed a bit of an anomaly in your mission as he looked it over, see. You were supposed to eliminate -three- targets. Now, we was wonderin' if you knew anything about where miss Quanah-bo-bana done got herself to.">Awaiting input...
>>26101676O look its the op who can't take some troling/bitching you doing to cry harder and leave for good if some one makes fun of you tonight?
>>26101676"Dealing with the first three alerted the remaining target that she might be under attack next. She boarded a ship and escaped. The compound she escaped to will need more effort then the bounty warranted."
>>26101738this is not that bad
>>26101639>>26101676this sucks fuck you
>>26101704>>26101766Commander I am detecting increased estrogen levels and irritability.Should I administer Midol?
>>26101676Scan his mind first, then say that the suspect escaped and we didn't have anything to follow with.
>>26101835You scrape around the rather empty thought processes of the man. They had a tracking device on the dropship you hijacked and know it didn't make it to the compound.
>>26101802and a ice pack also a back rub would be nice too.>>26101835this
>>26101676Scan her to see if she knows anything.
>>26101866I will have both prepared upon your return to the bridge, Commander.
>>26101860well crap, telepath November and tell him to scramble that bug.
>>26101892November is already aware and makes for the dropship once he senses you're aware. It'll keep them off your backs but they already know something is amiss.
>>26101860We should probably make up how the granny knew their location was compromised and departed to elswheres.
Current proposed dialog:>"Dealing with the first three alerted the remaining target that she might be under attack next. She boarded a ship and escaped. We're not sure where she escaped to, and the bounty on one target wasn't large enough to warrant tracking her down."Confirm dialog option?>Y>N
>>26101935maybe say we hijacked the dropship and that she must have left on a car or apc or something else
Does he know how the bug got on the ship in the first place? I mean it was in the middle of enemy territory.As for what to tell them it should remain unchanged. She escaped before we could track her down. Just leave out the part where she might have gone. They have no proof WHO picked her up after she escaped and stopped in the middle of the desert.
>BeaconWe have a damn fleet, I'm sure we can produce a dummy beacon in a jiffy.>confronting a governmentDamn it guys, we're a pirate.
>>26101996It was one of only a few dropships available to the Don. It's been tracked for the several months he has been a thorn in the side of law enforcement.It was originally stuck to the ship at a faked peace negotiation between Lakas and Javelito, where the former attempted to kill the latter.
>>26102036alright good enough...we gotta scrub that dropship clean of anything identifiable before we take it to the Hercules.
>>26102017we only have one real ship and have yet to do any real pirating
Ok, then we stole a dropship.Hell, it is our MO. Do mission, try to steal spacecraft.
Yes it is. every mission we've gone on personally we've tried to steal the closest aircraft.
>>26102070Then die in a horrifying accident since we don't know how to pilot said craft. It's like real life!
>>26102116nah we actually know how to pilot most things, just not vikings.
You glare over the man for a few moments before responding. >"Dealing with the first three alerted the remaining target that she might be under attack next. She boarded a ship and escaped. We're not sure where she escaped to, and the bounty on one target wasn't large enough to warrant tracking her down.">"Yeah? 'At so?"The man's phone rings. He holds it up to his ear and doesn't say a word. He doesn't realize you can hear the conversation through his thoughts. They picked up the tracking beacon on the dropship now parked at the spaceport. November has a headstart on them, and they don't suspect you to be lying to them.>"Alright then ma'am. Enjoy yer bounty an' make sure to visit the Lakas starport for all yer purchases, eh?"The men leave in a hurry, escorted by spaceport CMC security. You attempt to reach out to November psionically. >Leave the dropship, let them have it and hope it gets them off your trail.>Have November booby-trap the dropship.>Remove the tracking beacon and attempt to escape.
>>26102198>Leave the dropship, let them have it and hope it gets them off your trail.
>Leave the dropship, let them have it and hope it gets them off your trail.easy come, easy go.
>>26102198>Leave the dropship, let them have it and hope it gets them off your trail.let's not get too cocky
>>26102198>Leave the dropship, let them have it and hope it gets them off your trail.WE GHOST NOW

>>26102407I have contacted Mac on this regard. He says that his crew can disassemble one and have an operable schematic within a few weeks.

>>26102519going with this
>>26102514Supporting R&D our own
Give everyone on the crew a bonus of like, 300 credits. Not all of them are freedom fighters and whatnot. They're not all going to be into doing this for no good reason. Even if they're already happy, some extra dosh isn't going to hurt, and we can afford it.

>>26102603uh, scratch the Reactor addon, then.
>>26102552pointless in the short-term if we can't build it. not too mention i think i remember us not having enough pilots.i wouldn't mind getting those cloaking reactors for our wraiths though...
do we really need the jetpack?

>>26102654After that one time we were jettisoned into space and captured, yeah I think we might want it.
>>26102603let's cut out the jetpacks and reactors
>>26102670... we don't have that.>>26102684we were also knocked unconscious then. having a jetpack wouldn't have helped.
>>26102654We might have some freaks and unskilleds to resoc into Reapers.

>>26102670>>26102587ha! then we obviously need to TAX 300 from everyone in our crew! it would be enough for all the schematics. >please note im not being serious
Well, alright Adjutant we need to pickup a cool million credits. Recommendations?
>>26102723Cut medivac and banshee. Save up until we get starport
>>26102723We can just take the starport.RIGHT AFTER WE OVERTHROW THE GOVERNMENT
>>26102603Just take the Reactor off the list.
>>26102723What the fuck?Why the hell are we not saving up for the Starport?
>>26102776Lottery tickets are available on Murric. Current payout is 3,000,000 credits.
>>26102794Current consensus seems to favor overthrowing the government to acquire a starport.However all of these schematics are being sold from the same source.I am not sure, Commander.
>>26102815aw hell no one wins those...buy a ticket anyways
>>26102815well, looks like we're going to rig the system
>>26102839It is 1 credit per ticket, Commander. How many should I requisition?
>>26102849all the remaining credits?
>>26102849Only one ticket.
>>26102836If only I wasn't at a fucking phone.
>>26102858Purchasing 514,625 tickets will give us a 2% chance of winning the jackpot, and provide smaller prizes additionally.We can expect a 40% return on spent credits.
>>261028581 ticket for every crew member we have!>>26102887... don't do that.
>Votes divided on purchase.>Awaiting new proposed purchases.
>>26102887crap. alright, I think I have an idea. We infiltrate the lottery and pull out a number that we have bought.
>>26102916Detecting no new proposed purchases.Save credits at this juncture?>Y>N

>>26103054At the very least, purchase:>Armory Schematic>1 Wraith Cloak Reactor>Jetpack Schematic
>>26103015seems good enough, really the only reason I wanted the medivac before we got the startport was because of a gut-feeling we might need them right away.
Please note that all votes are divided.You are being extremely difficult today, Delta Phoenix.

>>26103170nah, we have no pilots besides MAYBE november
>>26103015I don't mind that list as long as we aim to try and save up for starport schematics.
>>26103185It is a mercenary squad for hire, Commander. They have their own pilots.
>>26103180this should be good.
>>26103185pretty sure they come with pilots and >>26103180that would be good let's see what the crews opinions are
>>26103180sure, why not get some opinions on what to buy.Also purchase 5000 lotttery tickets.
>>26103180I am happy with this list.
>>26103180This is good
Guys, buy a handful of cloak reacotrs and nothign else for now.Being able to cloak our wraiths could be rather useful.Drop daluke in systme, launch cloak fighters, daluke leaves.?????Stealth air support on hand when needed.None of the ground options are wise right now.Hellions die too easy and jetpackfags will be worthless on board our ship.Stealth and precision strikes are our modus operandi for the ground portion of the game-That, and aid superiority as soon as we get it, so we cna keep a lane open to get home.We came here tyo buy SHIPs, not shit for ground ops.Wehn we make a plan, fucking follow it.
>>26103170No. Stick with dedicated space craft.Those nigger can't even cloak, and like ripping pilots in half. Huge liability.
... ask November if he thinks he can rig a lottery.
>>26103224Contacting tactical advisors.Head Engineer Guyver: >"Sir. Like I said I can reverse engineer that reactor, it's basically a must-have. The armory would be good to increase the effectiveness of our Goliath and siege tanks if we're looking at any armored deployments in the future. The reactor would increase our marine production significantly but not much else, and we mostly lost specialists."Sergeant Henderson:>"We could use vultures or hellions, Boss. Hit and run is our preferred strategy an' nothin' says hit and run quite like a grenade bein' shot at you at 80 miles per hour."CAG Mia Rodriguez:>"We got a good amount of air power between the extra wraith squad and Valk, sir. I don't think we need any mercs to help our forces out. Obviously having stealth on even one wraith would be a huge advantage, though."XO Sall Jamesson:>"Honestly this place is a tourist trap, sir. Those schematics are way too expensive for how little we need them right now. Consider anything under 100 grand but anything bigger than that isn't mission critical."
>>26103332This is a fuckign terrible idea.If it goes south enjoy murric refusing to do any business with us, ever. Our entire plan gets shot to shit and we're running again.For credits, which we can get by simply shooting shit, or running supplies to the city world.Which one of our ships should be doing right now anyway.why are you so fucking stupid?
>>26103348New orders to be placed:>Reactor Add-on Schematic: 50,000 Credits.>Wraith Cloak Reactor, Single: 25,000 Credits.>Jetpack Schematic: 25,000 Credits.>Hellion Schematic: 40,000 Credits.>Vulture Schematic: 75,000 Credits.
>>26103396I am good with this
>>26103332You sit at the Hercules' bridge, reviewing the schematics at a console and debating pros and cons with your Adjutant. You turn to November.>"Think you can rig a lottery?">"Lass, I have overthrown governments from tha' safety of my hotel room while simultaneously orderin' room service on a hacked credit card. I 'ave engaged in cyberwarfare with every Dominion analytical computer developed an' won. Riggin' a lottery is weekend stuff fer me."
>>26103348Adjuntant, how much money could be made running supplies to the city planet we helped liberate, or other needy worlds?Additionally, would the Valkyries, or Valkyries plus Hercules, be able to make supply runs and have it turn a net profit when the need to repair any battle damage/replace munitions is considered?
mmm I'm thinking we might want to get an extra cloaking device for a wraith right off the bat.
>>26103436Current supply reserves can be sold at maximum for 220,000 credits.We can increase production by building additional supply depots.
>>26103441Just buy enough to cloak all of mias squad, plus one extra.Or buy enough for ALL of our fighters. Why not?
>>26103094>Hellion Schematic: 40,000 Credits.>Vulture Schematic: 75,000 Credits.>Armory Schematic: 125,000 Credits.>Reactor Add-on Schematic: 50,000 Credits.save the rest for starport & ship schematics later
>>26103432Good, commence Operation: BINGO
>>26103432guys November thinks rigging a lottery for easy credits is definately doable. I say we let him do it so we can get that starport.
>>26103461Loading available fighters on deck.Wraith ("Dolphin 13", Pilot: Mia Rodriguez)Wraith (Purple 1, Pilot: Chase "Apollo" Simpson)Wraith (Purple 2, Pilot: Nat "Athena" Coleman)Wraith (Purple 3, Pilot: Duane "Hades" Allen)Wraith (Screaming Eagle 4, Pilot: Jeanette "Ringo" McCabe)Wraith (Screaming Eagle 6, Pilot: Kenneth "Wind" Bowie)Wraith (Screaming Eagle 7, Pilot: Jeff "Danger" Johnson)
>>26103458Contact the xo, see what ships and crew he'll need to start turning our ground side supply depots into profit.
>>26103476may as well if he is so sure and>>26103461we only need one mac can make us the schematics
>>26103432If November thinks he can do it I say let him. Maybe buy a "few" tickets to make it seem legit.
>>26103491I have contacted the XO.>"Well, you got the Hercules, and I can't move the Daluke. Each dropship carries about 100 supply, but takes 10 vespene to make a jump. I recommend we just stockpile it until we can let Murric stand on it's own since our gas reserves only grow so fast."
>>26103524Fuck it just rig the lottery
>>26103524And we have how many mne/ships here?Valkyries hold 30 men, we should be able to send everything but one home, and then send the Herc out with escorts. They can just buy replacement fuel after they jump.
>>26103557We can do both. May as well use all of our assets.
Commander, it may be wise to plan our course of action after schematic purchases are complete.If you intend to aid the population of New Albuquerque in overthrowing it's government it is extremely favorable to wait to make purchases.Additionally, if you wish to make purchases and leave the planet alone for now, you may wish to commence covert operations against the Murrican government before such a time.
what do you think of this list for buying just in case something happens to this place while we are waiting to win the lotto.>Hellion Schematic: 40,000 Credits.>Vulture Schematic: 75,000 Credits.>Armory Schematic: 125,000 Credits.>4 x Wraith Cloak Reactor, Single:100,000 Credits.
>>26103587Overthrow.go home first, load up Valkyries with marines for fast insertion if we need them, come back. O rjust send them home and stay here while we start laying groundwork and gathering allies.Either way, more men. OUR men. We may need them.Plus, barney needs to burn some space mexicans. They've been very, very bad.
>>26103603don't need to buy so many reactors. Just reverse engineer one and make multiple of that. Don't get armory. XO said that anything over 100k wasn't worth it.
>>26103628It'll take weeks and then we have to make them.Which may require a starport or some other shit we do not yet have.
>>26103432inb4 we get busted for fraud and a couple million gets tacked onto the bounty of ours.
>>26103587Let's not try to overthrow the government at the moment. Buy some tickets and have November do his thing.
Okay guys we need a game plan for thisSo far everyone wants everything at the same time and its getting us nowhere so lets do thisRig the lottery to pad our pockets before we start a revolutionStart a revolution with our ghostsAfter said revolution buy schematicsMay or may not give half our supplies to the revolutionaries to help spread our influence within the political process after said revolution
>>26103673Overthrow it and we get a planet with a starport industry and ships on our side, plus the people, who are skilled workers.All shit we can use, and murric needs.Plus, it fits in with the strategy of uniting a few planets to give us a safe haven and support network should the dominion come calling.
>>26103682>Start a revolution with our ghostsWe can use this planet.>After said revolution buy schematicsIt will likely be cheaper.>suppliesGive, sell, whatever. We should make use of them sooner or later- they're quite renewable.

>>26103752Yes Yes Lets buy 1000 tickets just to be safe
>>26103752buy 10000 tickets
>>26103752so, if we used all of our credits, the detection risk would be...
>>26103705The thing is, we aren't in any shape to overthrow the government and we don't have anybody else to take the corrupt government's place.
Loading possible mission parameters: Lottery Heist.The New Albuquerque government is a coalition of Governors of the 16 cities. Governor Lakas is at the head of this coalition and in charge of the capital city. He is the primary shareholder for every major Lakas shipping, shipbuilding, resourcing, and construction company. Effectively he controls the police, military, and industrial forces of the entire planet. He is opposed by the middle and working class for abolishing welfare laws, restricting civil rights, and general corruption such as accepting bribes, extorting smaller businesses, and smuggling.His resistance is currently weak and scattered due to the death of Don Javelito. Various rebel groups can be armed with our schematics or supplies to increase chances of success.Success will likely result in the formation of a republic similar to that or Murric, due to the heavy influence of Murric traders and immigrants to the planet.Risk of Detection: Low. Threat level: Extremely high.
>>26103789The detection risk would be solely dependent on the away team's success and stealth.
>>26103807We aren't.But odds are, others on the planet are, and we've got thee other ghosts who can probably find said people.
>>26103820Error: Possible Mission parameters: Overthrow New Albuquerque government.
>>26103820For now, can we find some rebel groups and 'accidentally' leave them schematics?
>>26103856It is possible to grant schematics anonymously.
>>26103820Arming rebel HO
>>26103875Would they be sended digitally or personally? If digitally, November should do it since he can cover his virtual tracks.
>>26103922Either option is possible.
>>26103820arm the shit out of them.Have our ghosts do recon and see if they think they can be coordinated, and if so, how effective they'd be.
((Setting question:Are we seeing official stuff only, or also campaign (diamondback, griffon) and scrapped (predator, targeting drones, etc) ))
>>26103971((Everything. You might see warhounds, diamondbacks. Hell you already have a Nomad.))
>>26103947Fax the schematics. Fax all the schematics.
We should purchase hellions and vultures so we can send them schematics.
>>26104035Oh, you clever bastard. Now I have to agree to buying those fucking things.Send them ALL our schematics, actually.In theory, couldn't we produce and ship them shit like tanks and walkers?
>>26104035Okay, I can get behind this.
(we are right back where we started, schematic buying hah!)
>>26104004Question, can we have Warhounds mine minerals and gas?

>>26104114Not the armory. may want to replace with Reactor instead. possibly add in jet pack.Still wouldn't get more than one cloak reactor
>>26104062Our production on Murric is focused on training additional medics and firebats at this time.>>26104099((Default Warhounds, no. But I guess you could rig some sort of super SCV if that's what you mean?))
>>26104158Reverse engineering dumbass.
>>26104004The world just got a lot more interesting.Our Nomad could have anything from mine drones to seismic thumpers. Hell, the predator is a spacecraft cum point defense mode.
>>26104175Takes weeks, might need them sooner.
>>26104161Was mainly thinking of this.http://us.battle.net/sc2/en/blog/9369235/Situation_Report_--_April_1_2013-4_1_2013
>>26104187This. Money we can lose, men we cannot. Buy them. this sort of thing is WHY we have money.>>26104161doesn't mean we can't switch up.Isn't a good portion of that base supply depots? we don't need them, why not scrap and set our factory and barracks down at the SAME TIME for a change?
>>26104250We can recycle 4 supply depots for 200 minerals, and free up enough space for the factory or barracks.We would need to recycle another supply depot to construct an additional tech lab.
>>26104114I have no problem with this.
>>26104291Nah lets build all of our tech and factories on this planet after this revolution. So one is for supplies and one is for tech, not a cobbled mess. So much more organized that way

>>26104567ya the only reason we are buying some things now is to A. give the rebels some aid and B. starting on making most of are Air-force Stealth able
>>26104567Yes, but purchasing these schematics allows us to better equip the rebels who will overthrow the government, Delta Phoenix.At least that appears to be the general consensus.
>>26104567We're kinda letting the government fix itself through internal violence.
>>26104567We bought them early to send the schematics to the rebels.
>>26104607That's not so bad I suppose...but the coupon cutter inside me is slightly saddened.>>26104612>>26104622Carry...on I suppose? Nothing like super violent Civil War. Like giving the South nukes.
You hear the dull thud of the other ship's docking connector as it pulls away. The reactors you've purchased are safely on board, and your database has it's new Schematics.>"Package is away, Delta. Armed a bunch of rebel monkeys to the teeth, let's see wot they do with it, oi?"You not and step to your console on the bridge of the Hercules.>"Ensign, commence jump to Murric.">"Yessir. Centennial Falcon actual to Black Earl. Jump is green."The vastness of space is replaced by the green and blue orb that is Murric and a small shiny dot that is the distant Daluke.>"Your plan leaves me with a few questions, Delta."You turn around, Whiskey is on the bridge with you, his arms are crossed and his thoughts are clouded to you. It occurs to you he's probably upset.
"Go ahead and voice them."
>>26104644Right um...well let's asking him what's wrong then
>"I'm not sure I follow you."He steps forward to the window of the bridge.>"You're still a ghost. Arming people and letting them die for your gain, because the violence of others is easier than achieving your goals through peace. Stealing from the education of a crippled planet who needs skilled laborers more than anything else right now."You step up next to him. There are still black and burning spots on the globe of Murric. Like someone took a cigar to it. Entire cities levelled in the fighting.>"I know you have the luxury of not remembering, but I do not. We have much to atone for. Stealing and violence are not the best way to accomplish that.">Awaiting input...
>>26104746Its either us risking our crew or we let these guys fight their own fight with a bit of our help
>>26104746"What do you suggest?"
>>26104746to his objection to arming the rebels, the peaceful option would not work
>>26104746Wait, we're stealing from the education system?Fuck, and I thought I read it well enough to catch up...Man, you guys can b dicks sometimes.I'd like to avoid I'm against the selfish gain against making kids dumber.
>>26104800Well... It's not TECHNICALLY stealing from them.They were gonna give the money out ANYWAYS.We're just rigging it so they give it to US.
>>26104800>avoidVoice too, but avoid is in that sentence somewhere.
>>26104746We'll donate some of the money directly to Murric's re-infrastructuring. As to the matter of the rebellion, freedom by blood is better than oppression by inaction. It's what the people want, need even.
>>26104819You know most Lotteries don't even give out winning tickets for months, right?At least, that's how I understand it.
>>26104776>"After all of the people you killed because the Dominion told you they were 'corrupt', you'd think you would kill one person who actually was to save the lives of every idealist down there learning to use a C-14 we gave them. Not every revolution is violent, Delta."
>>26104826Ooh hey, I like this. The prize is 3 million, right? We can DEFINITELY afford to give some of that away.
>>26104746"I'm not a planner Whiskey, and I can't fix universe. I can only nudge it a bit towards a rightful state.And I don't even know how to invest 3mil. We can do better than a pirate crew with the surplus."
>>26104845Exactly. And without our help the rebels would either be slaughtered or never gain any headway and stay in a terrible place. Change is necessary.
>>26104840"A peaceful revolt takes time Whiskey, and a better mind towards politicks then me. It also takes someone who wouldn't abuse all his power to STAY in power. If you don't think that man would slaughter civilians to suit his needs then you are merely being naive"
>>26104786>"I suggest you stop to think every so often.">>26104797>"You know this how? Because they were oppressed by superior forces, and the only way to be free is to have equal force? You know as well as I do that a system of tyranny is only as stable as you let it be. It only has as much power as it's given.">>26104826>"So we're only stealing half of the money and pretending to be saints. Here I was worried about you.">>26104881>"There is more than one type of change."
>>26104840Also"Kill one? There's a whole government down there Whiskey. I'm a ghost, not a one person army. Even with all of your help."Referring to our crew.
>>26104455Yes, we do know this you fucking mongoloid, it was known to use when we jumped.Read the fucking threads.And again:We have to split our forces.Oh, and murric is rural and fucking full of land, we just haven't bothered to buy any more.So why would we EVER bother building our shit here?
>>26104887>"Are you deaf or stupid, Delta? I am telling you he needed to die - and you left his death to the teeming masses. You left them to throw themselves upon his guns in ignorance of the fact that you could've stopped all of this with one bullet."
>>26104909let's remind him that he could have voiced this idea while we where still there
>>26104947In during "you didn't ask you fucking junkie cunt"
>>26104909Meh. We can go back whenever we want. Governor Lakas trusts us as the Handy-Dandy Bounty Hunter. Perhaps at a time when things are at a critical junction and his death would be the psychological and physical turning point in the rebellion.
>>26104947>"I could've. I didn't know the plan until we were already jumping, though. It's not too late. We can still go back. But I get the feeling you're more worried about 3 million credits right this second."
>>26104909Is it too late to go back and conduct an assassination mission?
>>26104909"Want to take on that offer? A Gorgon is too visible, but something smaller can be arranged from Murric"
>>26104982The rebel forces have only had our schematics for a few hours, Commander. It is unlikely that any revolution has yet to begin in earnest.
Is there any benefit for Delta to hand-hold November on the Lotto Mission so we can go put a bullet in a corrupt governors head?
>>26104999how long will it take to get the 3 mil?
>>26104979well then let's shoot a nigga
Could we send a cloaked Wraith and messages to rebels for refuge? Maybe Whiskey could take on this with minimal support.
>>26104994>"If you don't care enough, fine. Give me a dropship and I'll do it myself. You don't need me for this mission anyway, you're just going to be sneaking past halfwit security guards - Although I might end up coming back to a Murric that's shooting at me."
>>26105011We will be waiting until duskfall when security is lightest, Commander. It will be several hours.Note that it will take time to track down and kill Governor Lakas. Perhaps up to 24 hours.
>>26105042that should be enough time to get back and have the rebels hold off until after we've assassinated lakas, right?
>>26105057Without proper intelligence on the rebel groups I cannot make that estimate, Commander.
Honestly do we even need anyone but November for the Lotto Mission? I mean its just sneaking in and cracking a computerI'm of the mind to send Delta, Charlie and Whiskey to take care of the assasination
>>26105073November as a solo operative runs the risk of being discovered while changing available algorithms.
I don't really want to send Whiskey alone, lets ask Charlie if she would be willing to accompany him. Also she kinda isn't needed for a no-causulty op either.
>>26105120if we let them go alone, they'll probably get whacked.
>"Time's wasting, Delta."November watches you patiently, but you feel it's best to not appear like you're considering this too hard.>1 Allow him to take a dropship and eliminate Lakas.>2 Personally go to eliminate Lakas, leave him to finish lottery mission.>3 Focus all available forces on lottery mission, then return to New Albuquerque as one unit.>4 Focus on lottery mission and allow New Albuquerque revolution to continue as planned. Vote ends in 4 minutes.
We need to check their jackets and make arrangements. Whiskey may be a combat beast, but I doubt he is Liam Neeson.
>>26105073Send november and charlie to rig the lotto.Or just don't do it. He's not kidding about the bit where murika possibly shooting at us.And our risk of detection is high as fuck. as in 100%.Also, he'll be pissed either way if we right the lotto, and a ghost is worht ALL the credits in the lotto and then some. We can get money other ways.Us and whiskey go kill a nigger.Shit, why noy just ask murricTell them if they pay for schematics, we'll build it and split production for a while.
Also we should take Charlie with us. it'll be good to have a backup sniper.
How about we destabilize the government ourselves? Wouldn't be too hard blowing up a governor and maybe the legislation building.We should forget about the lotto money if Whiskey has a problem with it. We don't have to pad our pockets We can get information from the rebels. With that information we destabilize the government while the rebels swoop in and take charge through the legislative means so nobody dies but a bunch of politiciansWe can probably still buy everything too after this

>>26105140>5No lottery. viv la revolution.
>>26105176Also, erm...is there any chance we can buy a whoooole lot of tickets so it doesn't look like we're THAT guilty?
>>26105207That is the current suggested mission parameter, Commander.
>>26105162Well, the proceeds go to the education system. We're just getting the winnings, right?
>>26105176>Codename: Charlie Phoenix>Specialization: Sniper. Assassination.We could take Charlie. She is probably more stable around us anyway.
Ask if she is alright with coming with us. Gotta involve these people in our plans a bit more. They aren't drones.
>>26105242ya so whiskey is pretty much bitching there
After some thought you decide on a plan.>"I'll head back to take care of Lakas. Everyone else will stay here and complete the mission.">"Right, mission."Whiskey leaves the bridge. Although he appears to have calmed down you're worried he's still not particularly satisfied.You head to the Black Earl and sit in the cockpit. Pre-flight checks and diagnostics have begun. If you want to take any backup now is the time to request it, Commander. You may be alone at Albuquerque for a while.
>>26105294Ask if Charlie wants to come.
>>26105294Let's take Charlie, a good time to get to know her.
>>26105242The 'pot' goes to education if no one produces a winning ticket. As such, if no one were to win this lottery this round, the entire amount would be going directly into education.It is not a rolling lottery that runs on credit of previous rounds and pays out small payments to account for this. It is a lump sum single-round lottery.
>>26105294ask Charlie if she wants to help us
>>26105242You're missing the bit where they'd get three million otherwise.
>>26105360Can't go through space, can't enagge air targets.We're going to a world that produces spacecraft.It'll get shot down.
>>26105360You are not able to utilize the banshee in this mission for a variety of reasons, commander.1: Banshees are not able to operate in deep space.2: Banshees are not FTL capable.3: Banshees do not fit in a Dropship hold.4: The Hercules is returning to the Daluke to the Lottery mission and supply runs to Kilaro for additional credits.
>>26105372We just bought Valkyrie stealth reactors, right?Seems like the perfect opportunity.
>>26105397Wraith stealth reactors, Commander. Valkyries are not stealth-capable at this time.
>>26105405Oh, I didn't know they were specifically designed. My bad.
You radio Charlie as the dropship prepares to take off.>"Commander?">"Charlie. We're returning to eliminate Lakas before any revolution begins, hopefully we'll eliminate any bloodshed preemptively.">"Delta, if I may, this is more or less my specialty. You just armed 16 rebel factions with schematics for everything from SCVs to tanks. They're gearing up to take him down. If he gets randomly assassinated, you're just going to set a powder keg on fire. Even then, we have no real guarantees that there's not going to be a huge power vacuum and the revolutionaries aren't going to start blowing eachother to bits over ideologies. I'll help you but I don't think killing one guy is going to make everything better at this point.">Awaiting input...
>>26105435when buying them, they clearly said WRAITH stealth reactors...
Can the wraiths be equiped in time to be of use to us?
>>26105451See, damn it that is what I wanted to tell WhiskeyMan...
>>26105454Contacting Crew Chief Marion M. Ryan:>"Sir, I've got 11 SCVs and one Nomad, I'm still pluggin' holes on seven decks, we're still in a free spin and venting atmo. I can't spare anything from Daluke repairs right now, because if the Dominion shows up with our pants down like these we're so many kinds of fucked - uh - sir."
>>26105451That gives us two missions then doesn't it?
>>26105451well what do you think we should do I value your input
>>26105453As a person who plays the games himself, I can safely say I mix up Valkyries and Wraiths every so often.
>>26105451I just woke up, and I'm left wondering why the fuck did these retards arm the rebels, then leave when this could have all been solved with us stealthed and a single bullet along time ago...ffs now we're going to have to deal with the leaders of the rebel factions
>>26105451"Very well, suggestions?"
>>26105494>"More than two, Delta. But I like a challenge!">>26105496>"Well, it's a big mess, so... I don't know what's best, sir. We might want to just get there and make contact as soon as we can with the rebel groups and try to organize this whole shindig. If that works it's our best shot to save as many people as possible."
>>26105521"I'm horrible at talking to people. But lets try to do it the right way. If it fails we can still just shoot him."
>>26105521Then lets do thisYou steal shit back from the rebelPretend its the governments doingand I'll kill larks
>>26105397... my god.No. Leave now.
>>26105521getting in touch with all the rebel groups and trying to negotiate some sort of ceasefire between them looks like the most viable option, once we get them to stop killing each other, we can stealth in, kill Lakas, and get started on setting up the new government
>>26105521should we talk this through a bit more with Whiskey?
>>26105545we are planning on shooting the governor regardless...
>>26105568>"He's... kind of fuming at you right now, Delta. I think it's best to just let him focus on his mission for now. We'll be able to sort it out, don't worry!"
Well, they already have someone to martyr down there. They'll do fine with some propaganda.And Im sure Enrique's son can get an education in Murric.
>>26105557Hply fuck no.You can't just "steal back" a cargo hold worth of supplies. Especially when they're already driving, wearing, or holding most of it.
>>26105521good idea doing it this way we can make sure factions that are less batshit get in power>>26105568fuck whiskey if we had followed his plan things would have gone to shit
>>26105578Very well. Shall we go?
>>26105560Already realized my mistake. No need for rudeness.
The other ghost boards the dropship and sits in the copilot seat. You seal the doors and the Hercule's bay doors open and free you to space. You set a course for New Albuquerque. It'll take the ship's computers an hour to calculate. Yep. Just an hour of sitting there. You and Charlie.>Awaiting input...
>>26105578we need someone who's good at talking.
>>26105618Whiskey's specialties are more combat and psy-ops oriented, Commander. He is not particularly suited to negotiations.
>>26105616talk to her, about what? i have no idea, I'm about as good in social situations as Delta is...
>>26105616Ask her about our past, and herself, for crying out loud! Finally, some character development!
>>26105616"So... How're you doing?"
>>26105637no, I'm just saying, we need to get a hold of someone who is good at negotiating
>>26105654As in character as I think this is, let's try to be more...talkative.Tell her that we're glad she could be here to help us. We...don't remember much, and we wanted to ask her if she could...fill in the gaps. Whiskey seems to be lording over us with what he remembers.
>>26105613There's plenty of need for rudeness.If you'd read adjutants posts, you'd know what the reactors were for.People who don't read said posts are the people who nearly fuck us in every thread.There's plenty of need for rudeness.
Oh god every time this thread happens I end up laughing so damn hard. It's either that or cry.
>>26105691>Whiskey seems to be lording over us with what he remembers.When we get back, after everyones missions are done, we should get Phoenix squad together for a talk and tell them, that at any time, they are welcome to voice their opinion to us, Delta is still dealing with the whole 'no memories and only regained free will thing 3 weeks ago' deal, we need them to talk to us when they think things could be done better, or if there is something on their mind, they feedback is very helpful to us
>>26105616After Korhal went down, how did the whole crew go back?
>>26105654>"So... How're you doing?">"I'm okay, Dee. I'm just really glad you didn't leave me on purpose. I was really worried."Dee. She calls you Dee. How did you forget that.>"I don't remember anything before Umoja.">"Nothing?">"Bits and pieces."She's quiet for a little bit, as if she's not sure how to handle the situation. You can't help but occasionally pick up memories she has of you as she thinks about them.You've apparently saved each other's lives a few times, gotten into far too much trouble for being more human than ghost when you shouldn't have been, and been planning to escape since the two of you met when you were brought to the ghost academy on Tarsonis in a confederate APC.
>>26105738thisalso we need to say this to the others of our crew we are close to as well. Getting their opinions only when we think about it is obviously not working out.
>>26105757"I'm sorry, for the record. Sorry that I forgot and broke a promise. You know, the whole amnesia thing...maybe you can fill me in on some of the highlights while we travel?"
>>26105757I want to know>>26105748
>>26105757Quite a past we have
>>26105803we forgot the promise, we didn't break it, we still got her away from teh dominion
>>26105817It makes sense why we're soft hearted now.Half the time...sorta.>Looks back on first thread explosion...sorta.
>>26105837One day, Umojan CMC. One day.
>>26105757"Were we... always together?"
>>26105748>"After Korhal went down, how did the whole crew go back?">"No one was at Korhal. We had our missions. Zeta was engaged with Raiders at New Folsom. Alpha was infiltrating his way on board the Hyperion. I was taking out the Commodore of the rogue battlecruiser. Echo was tracking down a broodmother taking out one of our - one of the Dominion's mining complexes. Whiskey was... impaling flaming civilians on iron spikes or something."She stares more intently at the window. Parts of her speech are interjected with her photographic memory unintentionally. >"I waited for you on that battlecruiser for a while. The crew had already mutinied and we were going to escape on it. I didn't kill the Commodore until Zeta contacted me first. Ordered me to pick him up and then the rest of the squad. It was chaos. Parts of the military went completely rogue. Rebels everywhere. Zerg overwhelmed a lot of our installations after striking so far into the sector. We received a priority message from command, we were to continue sample collection for a project.">"What project?">"I don't know. None of us did except maybe Zeta. We had to collect a lot of biological samples from Protoss and Zerg. Whiskey thinks it was some sort of super-psychic program. You blew all of it up, though. Thank god.">"And Murric?"She looks away, out the window. Her thoughts close off more.>"When we heard about Umoja we thought you died in the blast. When you resurfaced with that rogue marine - Henderson, I knew the truth. What I didn't know is that you were wiped before the Umoja mission. Something triggered it though, that's not standard for them to wipe so much."You vaguely remember your Terrazine-induced hallucinations. You feel like Whiskey might know more about that.
>>26105940"So you're saying that someone purposely wiped my memory?"It makes sense...especially since they all seem to remember so well."I must have known something they really didn't want getting out...maybe something about this 'project' you mentioned? I wouldn't know...do you think the others would know anything more?"
>>26105940Give her a hug
>>26106020I don't think that hug is ever gonna get through, Wren
>>26105931>"We all were.. And there were more we lost."She sniffs and wipes her eye clear. You can sense her resisting the urge to cry.>>26106019>"You hadn't considered it? I don't remember some missions, sure, but it's not like I don't remember anything for the last twenty years. I don't know what you knew."
>>26106040Tell her we're sorry about Echo, Zeta and Alpha. I know I am.
>>26106040time for hugs I think
>>26106040aw, damnit, now we have to hug her.
>>26106040"A Ghost needs a fright"
>>26106040Well sweet damn, it seems like we did know some fucked up secret science shit..."Whatever it was, I want to remember... when I underwent the Terrazine treatments, I...saw fragments, more then normal, but I felt like I was really close to remembering something important. It was...terrifying, but I think the Spectre treatments are bringing some of it back."
>>26106050we may as well do this but I still hold out hope that alpha is alive
>>26106054>>26106052Am I the only one coming up with questions? Comon guys!
>>26106040"You know...there's no shame in tears. They remind you that you're human deep down, under all this ghost shit."
>>26106050You awkwardly fumble one arm up into one of those 'hugs' you have heard about. Charlie leans her head into you.>"I'm sorry, about Echo. And Zeta. And Alpha." >"Not just them, Dee. Bravo, Foxtrot, Golf, Hotel, India, Juliet, Kilo, Lima, Mike... So many dead. And even now that we're free, we're still in a bloody fight. I asked you when we were little, why was the world so evil. You know what you told me? So that there could be good guys. Imagine what I felt like, years later, when we were running a mission and I realized what I was."
>>26106094Dunno. She's Charlie, we're like evil companions and this is our night out.
>>26106141She just wants the Dee to come back to her senses
>>26106141>Purple GhostNow that's classyWe're Deep Cover, so we must know how to contact underground resistances, right?
>>26106072>"Whatever it was, I want to remember... when I underwent the Terrazine treatments, I...saw fragments, more then normal, but I felt like I was really close to remembering something important. It was...terrifying, but I think the Spectre treatments are bringing some of it back.">"That shit's scary, Dee. I lost you once, I don't want to lose you again. Just be careful."
>>26106141Ouch...that's some harsh stuff there. Also a loooot of dead ghosts. Damn."Even now, I'm not so proud of things I've done. Free will means you can only blame yourself too...but I think the difference is now, I try at least."Then about the last part."That's a pretty good saying I'd say...we're just a hero that got brainwashed. A little more complicated to say, sure, but I think it still works."
>>26106196"I'll do my best. And I'm sorry about asking you to fight more... but at least this time we can try to be the good guys right?"
>>26106141"What you, what we were, is not what we are now, and even though I struggle and don't always make the best decisions, we're doing good now"
>>26106196"Believe me, I know...but if I'm going to get to the bottom of anything, I won't do it by sitting on my ass. I'm keeping an eye out though...if something bad does happen, I promise I'll quit. You...still take my promises, don't you?"
>>26106196I don't plan on doing it for long the sooner I get off it the better
>>26106210>"Even now, I'm not so proud of things I've done. Free will means you can only blame yourself too...but I think the difference is now, I try at least.">"It's not really free will when you don't have any other options, Dee. But we can still try.">"Believe me, I know...but if I'm going to get to the bottom of anything, I won't do it by sitting on my ass. I'm keeping an eye out though...if something bad does happen, I promise I'll quit. You...still take my promises, don't you?">"You didn't break your promise even after you forgot it. I'd say you're better at keeping them than most people are."
Your computer has made the appropriate calculations, Delta Phoenix. Are you prepared to make the warp jump?
>>26106307Lets do it
>>26106277>>26106307Yay~ I love me some character development.Now we know why Charlie liked us so much...still not sure as to what EXACTLY their relationship was...but hey, maybe that's part of the fun.Let's warp baby!
>>26106307make it so number two
>>26106307Let's get this show on the road.
Once again the bleak deserts of New Albuquerque fill your view. Your slowly descend into an orbit. Charlie puts on her targeting visor and her demeanor seems to change almost immediately.>"We'll have to contact each of the rebel groups prior to even attempting the assassination. I've sent a broadband to each of them. We'll need a base of operations to solidify a meeting between all of them so we can do this as smoothly as possible."Loading dossiers, Commander.
>>26106413Hmmm. You know, I think we need to have Mac make a cloaking device for the dropship as well...
>>26106447Good project for the future...but we'd probably need an all purpose cloaking device.>>26106413Also load up some good 'HQ' locations Adjutant.
>>26106447>>26106480>mac making cloaking devices>cloaked DalukeTHIS MUST HAPPEN
>>26106494The energy expense would be enormous. Probably no Yamato and some gas, even.
>>26106447That reminds me, here's a list of things I think we should work on:Cloaking devices for vessels, such as dropships and perhaps valkyries.Tranq darts and knockout gas grenadesUpgraded suits for the rest of the teamGet our hands on Umojan CMCImprove current CMC armorGain more training from Protoss.I'm thinking of going cold turkey on terrazine. Maybe as soon as we're done with the mission, maybe as soon as we get most of our memories back.Improve Daluke's energy capacity.That's all I got so far.
>>26106603Make Valkyries able to hit ground targets first.Tactical insertions everywhere.
>>26106603We're already having the team research armor and weapons back home actually.I don't think more Protoss training would help us out a lot...I think we were told we hit the wall.
>>26106619What about making Goliaths able to fire their missiles at ground targets? Goliath missile artillery.
>>26106619hmm... interesting>>26106631Ok, well, I was actually thinking more of getting to know the Protoss better.>>26106637Oh, excellent. And then probably have the mutli target lock, too, so they can hit ground and air units at the same time.
>>26106637You'd have to replace the type of launcher itself, and it probably couldn't hit air anymore.
>>26106669I'm all for Protoss Friends.Kassix is a cool guy.
oh, shit, I think I know who some of the rebel leaders are...not! Fidel Castro and Che Guevara Not! Lenin or StalinNot! Mao Ze Dongto name a few...
>>26106768Well at least it's not Not HitlerI heard that guy was an asshole.

>>26106854No rebel leaders carry that name, Commander.
>>26106836Daaamn Adjutant. That list.(Where on earth do you get all these names? If they're all references I'm gonna spend the next 30 minutes trying to figure them all out.)
>>26106836what information do we have on them
>>26106836Right, so...we need a place all these guys can meet up safely.Lets get us an HQ
>>26106885There are no references on that list commander. >>26106887Information is limited, Commander. I advise contacting them.
thats a hefty list, whats the average size of each group?Also yes lets see if we can't get ourselves a decent meeting spot.
>>26106909Ok, should have had november for this. Sending out anonymous emails and stuff
We need to filter those who can help us with info to get near Lakas. Experience in military, shipments and security.
>>26106920 And tell him to stop spamming our emails.
>>26106920what...is Delta so useless that we need our hacking specialist to email someone?
>>26106908ya it needs to be someone that is easy to defend and neutral
>>26106836You...uh...you weren't kidding when you said we'd be here a while, were you?
>>26106952somewhere I mean I need to look before I post
>>26106918Groups range between 100 and 15,000 members.
>>26106909alright, what's the suggested method of contact?
>>26106954I do not make jokes, Commander.
>>26107002We can make an anonymous vocal two-way contact with relative ease. That may be your best bet as all factions are aware of an anonymous schematic donor.
>>26107028alright, let's find a nice safe house and call them up for a meeting
>>26107028sounds like a good idea
I'd say go with the oldest group or boss. Can never hurt to speak with experience.
>>26107028we need to establish a suitably 'villainesque' base, complete with ominous table and high backed chair, in a badly lit room, to hold our conferences from
>>26107053We also gotta get jelly filled powdered donuts
You sigh as you go through the list of dossiers, lamenting the death of Don Javelito, who had apparently united all of them prior to Charlie injecting him full of bullets.Charlie speaks first.>"We're going to want to get a grip on each group. We'll probably want to contact each one individually. If you want, I can do that, and you can worry about finding a safe house for when we organize all of them together. Or the other way around, I don't care."
>>26107093Let's do the contact ourselves. Let Charlie find the safehosue.
>>26107093"If you would handle contacting them I'd be grateful."Lets review base sites.
>>26107093Make it so. The way she said first. Charlie knows how to deal with people WAY better then us.
>>26106637They do not have the range or the need. We HAVE arty- tanks, a cruiseer, and cloaked fighters.
>>26107093Definitely let Charlie handle all those people...she seems better at it anyway.
>>26107144What about attaching Siege Tank turrets to the cruiser then? Good for attacking other large space objects and bombarding the ground.
>"Right, I'll contact the rebels. You look for neutral ground."Loading available planetary locations, Commander. Additional information available upon request.>Ratti Mountain Range.Sparse vegetation and limestone cave networks are present.>Yuale Lowlands.Flat shrublands for thousands of miles. Some wildlife is present.>Nijaro Highlands.Rocky hills, magnetic activity in the area tends to interfere with advanced sensors and technology.>Sheara Dune Sea.Hundreds of acres of sand dunes. Sandstorms are rampant.>Neuvo Rio River.Runs through several settlements, then to the planet's single great salt ocean.
>>26107184That is retarded. It already has a shitload of laser batteries and a yamato cannon. A tank doesnt compare in any way.
>>26107200>>Nijaro Highlands.>Rocky hills, magnetic activity in the area tends to interfere with advanced sensors and technology.this sounds attractiveotherwise:>Ratti Mountain Range.Sparse vegetation and limestone cave networks are present.
Rolled 47>>26107200Gotta get in that mountain rangeGo insurgent on them
>Nijaro Highlands.sounds great since I bet the government will be trying to keep an eye on us. Especially since they like trackers>Ratti Mountain Range.ready-made ceiling and walls, just need a table and lights.prefer the highlands but we'll probably have to import everything.
>>26107200>>Ratti Mountain Range.fuck yea cave networks
>>26107200>Nijaro HighlandsFirst check if any corp holds some sort of claim over nearby grounds, though.
>>26107200Whichever location is on the most neutral territory. That is, far from any territory that any particular rebel group owns.
>>26107200>Ratti Mountain Range. the highlands could fuck with are suit so I am iffy on it
>>26107200>Ratti Mountain Range.we can nefarious meetings in there like the taliban.
>>26107200Mountain range all the way.
>>26107261>>26107263These are the primary surface features of the planet. The planet is comprised entirely of these 5 areas and the great salt ocean.There is excessive space in any given area. Only 2% of the planet's surface has been claimed.This includes all 16 settlements.
>>26107295>And the oceanUNDERWATER BASEI'm joking, we can't do that.
>>26107305we'd be a true cartoon villian if we managed it though.
>>26107318cartoon villain fighting for JUSTICEthey would never suspect it
>>26107295Alright, then I vote for the mountains. Any cave systems that can be used?By the way, we still have contact with the Don's mother, can't she help with this rebellion thing? She did his books and finances.
>>26107339we didn't bring her along
>>26107339I have established a link to the Daluke's brig. The guard on standby will put her on if you require her advice at any time, Commander.
>>26107343we probably should have though.
Voting will end in 4 minutes.>1 Ratti Mountain Range.>2 Yuale Lowlands.>3 Nijaro Highlands.>4 Sheara Dune Sea.>5 Neuvo Rio River.
>>26107357>Voting ending at 03:23. Tallying votes.
Rolled 2>>26107411>Rolling to resolve.
>>26107363... we would have had a tie if you voted properly
>>26107427no need to>>26107363didnt vote properly, so 3 wins with a score of 3:2 again 1
Rolled 1>>26107429((Good catch actually, didn't notice the space.It's 3 either way.))
>>26107429He did I think. 4chan counts those as spam even if you skip a few lines.
>>26107429>>26107438Are you people kidding me? You used to take votes in this format before, when did you change the system?
>>26107455ever since the system has been implemented its been NO deviations from the format Adjutant has outlined in the pastebin.
>>26107509And I've frequently voted with a fucking space between the quote and the post reference, and it's never been disallowed before.
>>26107529I'd like to point out >>26107438>It's 3 either way
>>26107529then you haven't been doing it correctly, even if you've gotten away with it.
You look over various locations before settling on one that's rooooughly equidistant to all of the locations and is, hopefully, neutral ground. >"Alright, I've got a location in the Highlands for the meeting. Magnetics should keep us off sensors and it's neutral ground.">"You had the easy job. I'll try and sum it up for you as best as I can: The NAPA, Las Rosas, and Prycastle killers don't like the Police Spies, Rogue Bankers, or Rogue Army Division 22. Shipbuilder's Union, Yard Workers, and Rogue engineers don't like Rogue Bankers or The Guild. Buffalo Riders, Radiation Bandits, and the Scalping Braves all dislike any financial or military rebels. Heartbreakers dislike law enforcement. Missionaries and Firefighters both want peace. Rogue Army Division 22 and the police spies want to maintain the current government under new leadership. NAPA wants to institute a communist government. Las Rosas want a representative democracy. Prycastle Killers want ... anarchy, yeah, it's still a thing. The Guild is an organized group of assassins since before even the rebellion so everyone is going to expect them to answer for what they're doing except the rogue bankers, who've been hiring them. Radiation bandits and the other unions are only worried about the working class. I... think that's most of it."
>>26107595"But we did get them to come, right?"
>>26107595"Sounds like a handful. But the important thing is that they can all work together for the coup, and resolve their differences through legal and political means once the new government is in place.">>26107622((Alright, thanks for the heads up))
>>26107633>"Delta, please listen. They all hate eachother. I might've understated it but I'm talking "going to kill eachother if possible." when I was naming names.
>>26107632>"I haven't organized the meeting yet. Not sure how you want to approach this."
>>26107649The Don had them working together. Let's get his mother on the line for advice.
>>26107652we need a break down of what kind of rebel group each rebel group belongs to aka who is financial/military and so on so we can work this out
>>26107681this as well intel is key
>>26107681You decide the best way to circumvent this is to go to the source. >"They were all dead men and women. Javelito knew they had only personal dreams and goals, and would drag New Albuquerque back into the gutter as soon as they had power. he promised each of them that the others would die and, to be fair, he did not lie about that part. But to get them to legitimately work together and form a new government... it is something he could not do."
>>26107595"Alright Charlie, I'm not gonna lie- I'm horrible with people, you should know that, but I'll give you my best thoughts on the matter and you can filter them through that smart brain of yours.The way I see it, half of these gangs are just that- gangs,more then any real rebellion. I want you to round up the sensible ones, namely those speaking peace and good government like Las Rosas, Missionaries, Firefighters.Buffalo Riders and Radiation Bandits and Scalping Braves, despite the creepy names, don't seem too crazy-unless you're not telling me something about them that is- so they might work if they're brought into line somewhat.I want you to figure out what the anger is about for the most sensible groups. If it's petty, solve it. If it's deep rooted, we'll do what we can. Also get a fix on the most powerful and influential groups with the people of this planet, and tell me all you can about them. If we're gonna get anything done on this planet, we'll need movers and shakers. Any questions and/or things I probably missed out on?
Well, we could simply have those that can work together do so while we handle the actual overall planning and assign them tasks well away from one another. >>26107704Oh great, the Don just planned to kill them all. What a wonderful person.
>>26107704Out of all these groups, which are the most numerous? Which are the most experienced in actual warfare? Which are the most popular with the people? Which have the most power and influence in the current system?
>The Guild is an organized group of assassins since before even the rebellion so everyone is going to expect them to answer for what they're doing except the rogue bankers, who've been hiring them.These two are already a government. I guess the first step is to get Las Rosas and these on the table, to recognize the worker's unions when push comes to shove.But now I need to sleep because it is fucking cold.

BTW, I came in late because I'm in a shitty euro timezone, but guys, we should seriously reconsider the lottery heist. We can just take more fucking missions, we don't need to rig a goddamn lottery on the only world currently friendly to us, seriously. Hell, if it's such a big deal, we could REQUEST a donation from the Murica government for the fact that we saved their goddamn planet.
heres an idea, and probably a bad one at thatwhy dont we get them to come to a 'peace conference' held by us, and blow them all up
>>26107777can we just get all the democratic and republican groups for a talk? Maybe even the communist group, too?
>>26107900ya let's try to get as many of those that can be near each other together
I'm seeing a lot of Democratic and Republic sides so why not try to sell them on creating a Democratic Republic? And that no matter their background they will need to work together to make the government something that will makeNew Albuquerque a better place.
((Fucking accidentally lost a wall of text and have to rewrite it. Hang on guys, it's coming.))
>>26107777What's the difference between democratic and republic groups? Is it that the first want to change the system to a democracy and the latter want to keep the current one?
>>26107942Ouch, hate when that shit happens Adjy. Sorry.
>>26107951Republic groups favor more governmental power, democratic groups favor more city- and population-oriented power.
>>26107951as as Australian I have no fucking idea, and I'm letting everyone else handle this, I do my absolute best to stay the fuck out of politics
>>26108008But they both want to change the current system. Good.
>>26108008They're just going to have to find a compromise for now
Alright, here's all the Intel I can get you, Delta."New Albuquerque People's Army."They dislike the government due to gross negligence of the working and lower class, and want to instate a communist regime so that the people don't starve."Las Rosas"Mostly small businessmen and women who are tired of extortion and excessive taxes. They're struggling to make end's meet under current laws."Prycastle killers"Prycastle was home to 23 rebels originally. All of them were hung by the neck until dead, and called "The Prycastle Killers" as they had been blamed for the death of a local girl, rather than reported in the Media as what they were, rebels. The remaining population took up the mantle and openly defies the government, and all governments."Shipbuilder's Union"SCV and starport workers fed up with terrible working conditions under Lakas' corporate and government face. They demand representation."Police Spies"The few remaining 'good cops.' They've done what they can to stop Lakas and his cronies behind the scenes."Rogue Bankers"Most of these bankers backed Lakas until he established his monopoly and effectively hung them out to dry. They've hired offworld mercenaries mostly, and just want him out of power."Firefighters"Firefighters, EMTs, city workers. Most of them are sick of corrupt politics and favor removing Lakas but are unified in little else. "Missionaries"Religious fanatics. They claim that Lakas is the harbinger of a dark god and a sign of the end times, and he must be stopped. Politically, their leader will favor more conservative governments."The Guild"Asssassin's guild that wouldn't even be on this list if the Rogue bankers didn't hire them. I know next to nothing about them."Radiation Bandits"Jake's Forge was home to a major strike. Lakas had his men remove the city's nuclear reactor's shielding, and a few hundred people died before the strike was ended. They're very, very upset about the guy.
>>26108010((What's funny is, as an American, these words mean the exact opposite. I am using them in their actual meaning.))
>>26108045>"Shipbuilder's Union">SCV and starport workers fed up with terrible working conditions under Lakas' corporate and government face. They demand representation.can we recruit these people?
>>26108045I'd like to call a summit with the leaders of the groups.
>>26108045"Scalping Braves"The settlement has next to no infrastructure. I'm talking electricity and running water are pretty much a luxury. When Lakas cut the governmental welfare programs they were hardest hit and had to resort to criminal activity for most of their food, water, and basic supplies. They have no real organization and aren't really a rebel group so much as they're looking to eat."Heartbreakers."Mostly, uh... 'escorts'. They were the first to suffer the abuse of a corrupt police force and also have dealt with the worst of it. Las Ventis 'was' the crime capital of New Albuquerque, and home to a multitude of Casinos, but Karen Cortes organized her women and took the city, more or less. At the moment the 'status quo' between Lakas and her organization is seemingly preserved until she is ready to strike."Rogue Army Division 22"Exactly what it says on the tin. Good guy marines didn't like Lakas. Went rogue. Hiding out in the mountains playing rebel scum at the moment. They're losing, and quickly, but they're the best equipped of all the rebels."Buffalo Riders"Vulture bike gang who took control. They're not as bad as other criminals, and aren't openly opposed to government or anything along those lines. Mostly taking advantage of a bad situation, within reason."(Construction) Yard Workers."Mostly SCV workers and factory workers. They're tired of their working conditions and low wages, and demand the right to unionize, something denied to them by the current government."Rogue Engineers"Mostly starship engineers, but most other academics. They have no military force to speak of, but are strongly opposed to the government's current opacity.
>>26108060Recruitment attempts should wait until after the planet's government has stabilized, Commander.
>>26108045hmmm.A Democratic system may be in favor here as it would allow the people to choose their representatives... Also, as the government is chosen by elective process, it means that in order to stay in office, they would have to maintain good public relations, which should prevent such atrocities such as those committed by Lacas...
>>26108045People that seem like they are the most reasonable/would be able to work together to form a coherent government:>NAPA>Las Rosas>Shipbuilder's Union>FireFightersThese guys will probably be the main ones talking.However, for the others, they mostly want revenge, something we can provide them if they work with us>Prycastle Killers>Police Spies>Rogue Bankers>Missionaries>Radiation BanditsThese guys mainly want the current leader dead. If they pool their resources with the other guy? We can promise them an assassination. I'm sure they'll lap it up>The GuildKeeping an eye on these guys. Just abunch of mercenaries, but who knows what they may have planned.
>>26108189yeah, ok, this for now.
>>26108144Adding to my last post:Shakers and Movers:>Constrution Yard Workers>Rogue EngineeersMostly of the rest want revenge/will give their support simply because of rebellion. They have a bunch of things against one another, sure, but this is just talking about support to take out the man himself. Once that is done then we can worry about politics, yeah?
>>26108189I am ok with most of this but remember the Guild is working for the Bankers and I don't think we should work with the two of them
>>26108144>>26108045Ok, from the looks of it, there are three divisions here.* Settlements belonging to minority groups or poor people that have been fucked over and are fighting to survive. If survival and the welfare of their home communities is paramount to them, they should have no problems with a system that offers them self-administration.* Unions of mistreated workers. Should be on board with a democratic system of government.* Criminal gangs with no claim to government or legitimate grievances. Smallest group. Can be dealt with later within the justice system.Call a summit.
