And we're back for more VMQ!Archive (1 and 2): http://suptg.thisisnotatrueending.com/archive.html?tags=Valkyrian%20Mercs%20QuestPastebin: http://pastebin.com/4YmwXmCkTwitter: https://twitter.com/MercCommandDon'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 LUCAS WILLIAMS, a student in the Sturmfuhrer Academy and currently enrolled in its elite TIER ONE Program. You've already got your little squad together and ready, but you've run into a bit of a problem. This "teambuilding" exercise you're currently on is less "teambuilding" and more "oh god everybody is out to get you". More specifically, your teachers probably found it amusing to make everybody gang up on what was presumably the most powerful team. Yours.Thankfully, you not only succeeded, but you soundly trounced the other teams thanks to a combination skill, guts and sheer dumb luck.You also found out that your squad sniper, Morgan, is actually a girl posing as a boy, for reasons still unstated. However, you agreed to keep the whole thing a secret from the rest of the your squad.You also found out in the middle of your training that you had a hidden dark side, a destructive bloodlust that triggers whenever you see someone you care about get hurt. Thankfully, you've been taking special training to suppress that urge, so it really shouldn't be a problem in the foreseeable future.And your Tier One training continues...(cont)
'Bout time.Also, expect some writefaggotry either within the hour or next thread.
Man, last thread's small discussion on Lara's misinterpretation of Luca's relationship with Morgan really got my creative juices flowing. So here's just some lines for Lucas to say if Lara, the fujoshi, ever asks him about his relationship with Morgan:(Forgive me for what I'm about to do)>1. "Sorry, but if I told you, Morgan will be on top of me all day until we graduate.">2. "Morgan's a sniper, he saved me many times from people who wanted to get to my blindspot. That's why I trust him watching my rear.">3. "One time, Morgan got his gun dirty and needed help cleaning it. So I began polishing it while he checked to see if his gun's action was working properly before he shot it in the range.">4. "He may be popular with the ladies, but he's not into their sort of type, and I've sworn on my Knight's honor that I will protect his preferences until he is able to proudly announce it to the world with me by his side."Lara confronting Morgan:>"Morgan, I just wanted to say that I know your secret. At first, I just couldn't believe that you were like that until I saw how Luke was this close to you. I tried to deny it, but when he told me about all of the times you spent together and how cheerful he sounded, I... I just couldn't ignore the signs anymore. Morgan, as Luke's sister, I just want to tell you that it's okay to be in a homosexual relationship with him. I couldn't know about how hard it is for you being like this, I know that the road ahead will be rough, and people won't be able to accept you, I just wanted to say that I'm here with open arms, so please... just make him happy.
>>27071628You are a devious, devious man...I like your style.>riesaimo 34no captcha, no rule 34 yet
>>27071628>really got my creative juices flowingOh my.
Now to see how soon passing a chance to channel that blood lust will bite us in the ass.
>>27071628Hah. You glorious motherfucker.
>>27071561Well, you made it!Despite all odds, and all the obstacles Ramirez, Tarin, and Simo threw your way, you and Alpha Team managed to graduate from Tier One! It was a long, punishing year, with endless training drills, simulated combat, survival runs, and many many MANY close calls. But you made it!However, the actual graduation ceremony was a bit anti-climactic. Rather than the big flashy ceremony the "normal" students got, the Tier One graduation ceremony was a small and humble affair. However, it sort of made sense in the fact that special forces were supposed to maintain a low profile. The less people knew about you, the more dangerous you were. That was something Tarin and Ramirez had been constantly beating into you since day one.Out of the original 50 students, only 18, including Alpha Team, managed to graduate. This was actually one of the most successful years, and the very first an entire team managed to make it through unscathed.Again, the ceremony was a simple affair, with some of the faculty, some family members, and some Tier One alumni attending. You each received diplomas, as well as the much sought after Black Beret, which signified completion of Tier One training. The Black Beret was... well... a black beret with a red stripe and Demons' Tier One logo: a demonic variation of the Gallian unicorn head with two knives crossed in the background. Also contained in the emblem was the Tier One motto, "No Matter The Odds".However, the most memorable part of the ceremony was at the end, where you actually saw Ramirez CRYING."Proper bloody operators." You heard him sputter.And with that, your place in the Demons of Randgriz was made official. (cont)
>>27071917Currently, you were sitting in the back of a Skyranger en route to Randgriz, the Gallian capital, as part of the traditional Sturmfuhrer Academy graduation trip. Outside the windows, you can see the pilot graduates in their own brand new, personally issued planes flying in formation nearby. You wonder which one Lara is in. It's hard to tell because all the plane were painted in the standard Demon red and black. You heard that Aces would be able to customize their paint schemes, though.Currently, the ride was smooth enough, though you still got flashes of your first paradrop, which was a bit traumatizing. It also didn't help that your Skyranger's pilot was nicknamed "Barfbag"..."My callsign in no way reflects on my ability to keep a plane in straight in level flight.... or to land it in one piece." He said at the beginning of the trip. You're not sure if you believe him or not.However, you're still a ways out from Randgriz. Most of your squad is still asleep, though there are a couple who are still awake.>Get some rest before you land.>Talk to someone! [specify]>Other
>>27071561So Merc, did you check your email?I say this waaaay too much.
>>27071929>>Talk to someone! Lucina
>>27071929>Skyranger>Pilot not named Big Sky
>>27071929>Talk to someone!Edwin. Let's see how he's doing, for once.
>>27071929>>Talk to someone! [specify]Edwin!
>>27071929>Talk to someone! [specify]Let's go with Edwin.
>>27071929>Talk to Lucina
>>27071929>Talk to someone! [Edwin]Time for a bro.Or at least a guy.
>>27071917>>27071929CODEX ENTRY UNLOCKEDDC-4 Skyranger Multipurpose AircraftQuite possibly the most produced aircraft in the world, the Skyranger is the perfect embodiment of Emmerian engineering: cheap, reliable, easy to fly, and even easier to build.The design is so simple and robust, that people still can't stop finding uses for them as transports and cargo planes. Skyraiders can be found among Emmerian, Federation, and Gallian air forces, and among countless civilian outfits.
>>27071929>Talk to someone! [Edwin]
>>27071929>Talk to someone! [Charlotte or Mary-Kate]If only because Mary-Kate might know fun places to go
>>27072010>DC-4 SkyrangerThat seems...oddly appropriate actually.
>>27071929>Talk to someone! [specify]Yeah, might as well make the effort to talk to Edwin.
>>27071929>Talk to someone! [specify]Edwin first. If not available, then Falynn (cause it seems like EVERYONE is stuck on the other twin)
>>27072019...Mary-Kate's dad owns a bar in Randgriz.GUYS.MARY-KATE'S DAD.OWNS.A BAR.IN RANDGRIZ.WE'RE SO GOING THERE. Assuming we make the trip without the plane getting shot down.Because seriously why else would we be in a plane if it wasn't going to get shot down.
>>27072095We are not driving a tank off a cliff again.
>>27072118Yea, we're not that hardass yet. A motorcycle will do
>>27072095We're flying over Gallia. So unless somebody penetrates the airspace specifically to shoot us down we're fine.>>27072118OH COME ON MAN! THAT WAS AWESOME AND WE SHOULD TOTALLY ONE UP IT SOME DAY!
>>27072133Hopefully it isn't Isolde's motorcycle.
>>27072133If we get a motorcycle, it shall be used for missions, not for driving off of cliffs.
>>27071929Talk to charlotte, try to keep what happened on the down low
>>27072149That would be an awesome way to reintroduce her.
>>27072118We never did. Jaeger did.
>>27072167Although the two aren't mutually exclusive.
>>27072167Yes, we shall sit in a side-car with our MG while Lucina drives.
>>27071929You see that Edwin is still awake, you so you slide over next to him."Hey, Edwin, what are you doing?" You ask curiously."I WAS enjoying the peace and quiet until you interrupted me." He sighs.>What do you want to talk to him about?
>>27072226Never mind, go somewhere else
>>27072226"Okay, seriously, what's your problem? I've never done anything to you, but you always act like - like I killed your dog or something!"
>>27072226Talk about the global situation. Economics, signs of escalating conflict, etc.
>>27072226So what's the first thing you're gonna do when we hit the town?
>>27072226"Good news first. The world's in great shape. We've got a civil war in the Empire, government loyalists against Ultranationalist rebels, and 15,000 Ragnite warheads at stake."Or something similar depending on just what the political situation IS right now.
>>27072271Something like this...except try to display a little more non-cussing venom. Edwin's being a douchenugget
>>27072421>Edwin's being a douchenuggetKid needs to get laid. Or high. Or drunk. Or all of the above.
>>27072458We should get him a nice Darcsen girl...
>>27072458>Or drunkI feel like we can solve this problem!
>>27072492Or maybe have a Darcsen flowergirl hand him a flower while the Alphas are in a mission location.
>>27072458I suggest Falynn. They would either a) get along like a house on fire, or b) get in a fight so bad that something would actually catch fire.So, it's a win/win.
>>27072542Mary-KateI suggest her. don't know why?
>>27072135Lucas isn't Jager, especially with having turned down any sort of bloodlust.
>>27072567That would be fucking hilarious, go for it.
>>27072528So one of those "Completely blow his mind" type events. kinginta cpm
>>27072567That would be...interesting.Go for it.
>>27072226"Okay, seriously, what's your problem? I've never done anything to you, but you always act like - like I killed your dog or something!" You say with an exasperated tone. Edwin's been nothing but antagonistic towards pretty much everybody this entire time."Hmph, I really shouldn't be talking to a commoner like you, but you have some Belkan blood in you, and that counts for something." Edwin says. "It's just that I've come to conclude that there's only two types of people in this world. Those who can pull their weight and those that can't. I have no time to waste on the latter.""So then what does that make Alpha Team?""You all have acceptable competence." Edwin says. "After all, you managed to graduate Tier One with me, so that counts for something.""Yeah but... do you have to be so mean about it?""My mother taught me to never have my time be wasted by fools. I followed her advice.""Uhhhh, I'm not quite sure that's what Auntie Karla meant when she said that...""It's GRAND MASTER HOHENZOLLERN." Edwin glares at you. "Nobody should be able to speak of her so casually!"Ouch, it looks like you hit a bit of a nerve there.>Let's talk to someone else... [specify]>Let's keep ask Edwin something else. [write in]>Other
>>27072492I doubt her papa would approve, though.http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=juuhx884ylM
>>27072629>>Let's talk to someone else... Morgan
>>27072629Fuck it, let's talk to someone cool.Like Sparky.
>>27072629>Let's talk to... Morgan!Or should we save that for later?
>>27072629>"That's not nearly what my father said to call her. He said AUNTIE KARLA was a nice and honorable lady. Either way, fork you">Talk to Lucina, Charlotte, or Mark-Kate
>>27072629>Let's talk to someone else...Drivearound. But, before we leave, say this:"I seem to recall that we had one person downed in that first training exercise. Who was that again?"
>>27072629>Let's talk to someone else... [Marisa]We need more Sparky dammit.
>>27072629>Let's keep ask Edwin something else."But seriously, would it hurt you to relax, just a bit?"
>>27072629>Let's talk to someone else... [specify] Charlotte and morgan
>>27072687This but let's talk to Faylnn or Char.Talking to Morgan should be later.I think Lucina is sleeping
>>27072629>>Let's talk to someone else... [specify]Spaaaaarrrrky.
>>27072629>Let's talk to someone else... [specify]Falynn, cause I like to give the underdog twin some time
>>27072629We shall speak to glorious Sparky.
>>27072629We must speak to best girlSparky
Edwin's probably going to become a bad guy through accident and then redeem himself and die. Saged for not a vote
>>27072850And Charlotte or Faylnn will have to save him. Wrenloft will roll a 20. The cycle will be complete
>>27072850Most likely by his lance missing his target and gibbing the civilian behind it.
>>27072850he becomes bannon?welp, whos the friendly french commander he gets killed? won't be in alpha team, probably an Osean or something
>>27072958Bannon didn't become a bad guy, just an indecisive, broken shell of a man who was afraid of making the same mistake again, so he ran away from any risk of it. They really should have sent him to a fucking shrink after what happened.
>>27073012in the middle of a war? you aint got time for that, and seriously some missions, I wanted some russian mook to blow his head off when he stuck it out his cupola, fuck I used infantry almost exclusively just to spite him
Hey guys, I might've figured out Edwin a little. See, he was raised by Karla and Schnee right?Schnee never stopped thinking of Karla as the Princess even after the aristocracy was removed. Edwin's been raised his entire life being told his mom SHOULD be a Princess and he SHOULD be a Prince with all that entails. No wonder he's uptight.
>>27073012It took the thread of Nuclear Armageddon to pull him together.
Compared to last quest, I realized that we've been talking about breaking our characters more frequently.
>>27073078then when he comes close to fucking up something serious on a Op we should get aunty karla to slap some sense into him
>>27072629"That's not nearly what my father said to call her. He said AUNTIE KARLA was a nice and honorable lady." You reply and begin to slide away from him. "Also, I seem to recall that we had one person downed in that first training exercise. Who was that again?"Your parting shot succeeds in getting a rise out of Edwin, who just turns red in the face and looks away, mumbling under his breath.However, you slide has you bump into Sparky. Fortunately for you, she's already awake. In fact, you're pretty sure she was awake during the whole flight. She had so much energy you're not even sure she had a concept of what sleep was."Hey, Lucas! What's uuuup?" She grins.>What say?
>>27073171Where does all that energy come from
>>27073171How do you have this much energy? I thought my mom was bad.
>>27073171"So what have you blown up lately?"No point asking if she has, something has gone boom recently.
>>27073201Yeah, I'll second this. Really, what does she eat or is it her metabolism?
>>27073171Ask her what she's going to blow up first when we get to Randgriz.
>>27073171>"You must get your sugar from my mother or something..."
>>27073171So how did those traps during the air show go?Don't try to hide it. I know you did it.
>>27073222From stealing the precious thing
>>27073227Friggin this, might as well ask what she's going to steal while we're at it.
>>27073227Heh, this so much.
>>27073227Sixthed I guess?
>>27073227>>27073231>>27073244>>27073263>>27073278>>27073302"Pretty. What are we going to blow up next?" - Alpha Team
>>27073171>Marisa is obsessed with explosives, pranks and stealing>Charlotte is a prankster to the core>Falynn is an engineerMan, she must get on pretty well with the twins.
>>27073171"So what are you going blow up first once we reach Randgriz?" You ask."What? Me? Blow something up?" Sparky gasps with mock horror. "How could you ever accuse me of such a thing?!""Seriously, Sparky, you like, blow up at least one thing in every training exercise we had, even in the ones we weren't supposed to have explosives.""Oh please, Randgriz is an ancient city full of history and culture! I could never blow up something so pretty!"You just keep staring at her."...okay, maybe a fountain or two.""Well, as long as you don't cause anything permanent." You sigh."Please, only AMATEURS leave a trail." Sparky puffs out her chest proudly. "I'll have you now, I've been taught by the best!">You mean Uncle Vinnie?>Have you ever tried like... NOT blowing something up?>Other
>>27073475>>You mean Uncle Vinnie?When are we going to ask about her necklace?
>>27073475>>You mean Uncle Vinnie?
>>27073475>You mean Uncle Vinnie?
>>27073475>You mean Uncle Vinnie?>Have you ever tried like... NOT blowing something up?Marisa has inherited the Curse of the Chinese Laundry, even if she tried, it would always call her back.
>>27073076>in the middle of a war?Yes, in the middle of a war.>you ain't got time for thatThe US Army has shrinks, MOS 73B, and they have them talk to people who are showing signs of psychological issues. In fact, the incident with Bannon and the civilians is EXACTLY the kind of thing that someoen would be ordered to see a 73B about. So maybe you should, y'know, do a little research before dismissing a proposal that a character should have seen a shrink.Plus there was a whole period between the end of their time in Europe and the beginning of the game when he should have been seeing someone. The dude was showing OBVIOUS signs, but nobody thought "Oh, hey, we should get this guy help for his blatant psychological issues."
>>27073475>Have you ever tried like... NOT blowing something up?Like...just once, to see how it feels
>>27073475>>Have you ever tried like... NOT blowing something up?
>>27073475>Have you ever tried like... NOT blowing something up?
>>27073554Did he lose it in France? I always thought he got his issues from that little sojourn into Russia.
>>27073475>You mean Uncle Vinnie?It's Uncle Vin time!
>>27073554Technically, there was only a week between New York and the start of the game. However, yeah, he should have seen a psychologist at least once during even that short timeframe.
>>27073475>"Please, only AMATEURS leave a trail." Sparky puffs out her chest proudly. "I'll have you now, I've been taught by the best!"....This is the taught by the best where "Leave no trail" is synonymous with "Level the entire area" isn't it.
>>27073665Ah, but they have to find who leveled that city block.
>>27073475>>Have you ever tried like... NOT blowing something up?>Sparky's reaction
>>27073706I bet her blood is nitroglycerin.
>>27073475"You mean your Uncle Vinnie?" You ask. You know that Sparky pretty much worships the guy. Then again, he did sound pretty cool from how Sparky described him."Of course! Uncle Vinnie wrote the book on explosives! I mean, he literally did write all the books on them.""Huh, I think you're right..." You do vaguely recall some of your old textbooks bearing his name. "So like, what exactly does he DO that warrants his particular set of skills?""Ah, well, it's kinda a long story... but I'll tell it anyways!" Sparky gives that regular toothy grin of hers. "He started off as a miner, and then went into EWII as a sapper, so he was pretty much into explosives his entire life. Then he goes and disappears for several years, working for some ungodly rich Emmerian guy. He never really told anybody what exactly he did during those years, but he got paid really well for it, and he even got me a souvenir!"Sparky then reaches into her shirt and pulls out a small chunk of crystallized ragnite that seemed to glow blue in the dark. "Pretty, huh?""Yeah." You nod."Anyways, not too sure what this thing does, besides glow and look really pretty." Sparky shrugs as she tucks it underneath her shirt again. You're about to comment more on it but you're interrupted by the plane's intercom squawking. (cont)
>>27074278"Attention passengers, this is Barfbag. We're on approach to Randgriz Airport and will be landing shortly. Be sure to keep yourselves strapped in nice and tight and uhh.... any shaking and rumbling is just turbulence, you got that? Just turbulence. Nothing to worry about at all...."You quickly return to your seat and buckle in. At this point, the rest of your squad is starting to wake up as well and they similarly begin to make sure they're strapped in properly.Despite Barfbag's pessimism, the Skyranger lands smoothly and without a hitch. Looking out the window, you see the planes being flown by the graduates landing on the adjacent runway."Okay! Everybody!" Simo yells, taking a position at the door to make sure nobody gets out before he does. "Make sure you don't leave anything on the plane. If you lose something, it's on you! Also, remember that Randgriz has LAWS and a POLICE FORCE. Please try to keep your activities legal! Does everybody understand that?""Yes sir!" Everybody says, though you're pretty sure some of those were pure and blatant lies."Alright, everybody dismount and regroup in the hangar, and we'll try to arrange some sort of plan!" Simo then hops out of the plane. "Oh right, and in addition to me, we'll be getting a new addition to the the team!"Simo points to a man already waiting for you on the runway. Well, describing him as a man was a bit inaccurate, as he was more a mountain of muscle and bone than a man."Simo!" The man booms, picking up the sniper in a huge bear hug. "How've you been?!""I'm fine, and you still look like hammered shit." Simo laughs and turns to the squad. "This ugly excuse for a man here is Bragg, similarly a Tier One alumni and from my class. He'll be my second in command." (cont)
>>27074301"Pleasure meeting ya all!" Bragg salutes. You also notice despite it large and intimidating appearance, he's also wearing a pair of thick rimmed black glasses, which also gives him a bit of a scholarly look. "So Simo, we gonna try it this year?""I guess." Simo sighs."What are you guys going to do?" You ask."Bragg's going to try and do the Demons' Mile." "The Demons' Mile?" You blink."Sort of a tradition that started about twenty years back." Simo shrugs. "It supposedly retraces the route our parents took when they went on a drunken rampage through the city after kicking the GRA out during the Civil War.""Well uh, you guys can go ahead, then." Charlotte says. "Me and the girls were uh, gonna take Lucina out shopping.""What?" You blink."What?" Lucina blinks."Oh come ooooon, don't pretend you don't know!" Charlotte turns to face her blue haired friend. "You. Do not. Have. Any. Decent. Clothes.""But the standard uniform fulfills all of my basic needs-""Shush!"At this point, the rest of the girls (except Morgan) were surrounding Lucina, blocking off all routes of escape. It didn't matter how skilled Lucina was, she wasn't getting out of this. You see Lucina's eyes dart toward you, as if she was silently begging you to help her.This left you conflicted. On the one hand, you kinda felt bad about the other girls ganging up on Lucina like this. On the other, you did always want to see what Lucina looked like in a dress, or even a skirt...>Help her out.>Sacrifices must be made for the greater good...>Other

>>27074318"I hope that weeks worth of dessert rations was worth it, Lucina." You say with a smug grin.Oh, that crestfallen look Lucina gives when she realizes her mistake is sweeter than any dessert Mom could make. Karma was such a wonderful thing."See you later, Lucina. I hope you find something nice for yourself!" You say as your poor best friend gets dragged away by the combined efforts of Charlotte, Falynn, Sparky, and Mary-Kate."Oh boy, shopping with girls. Wouldn't want to wish that on any poor soul." Bragg sighs. "ANYWAYS, let's get this tavern run started! Simo! Where do we start?" "The Opening Shot." Simo says, his face buried in a map of the city.As you start to the follow the rest of the guys, you feel a light tug on your sleeve and you turn to see Morgan, looking doubly nervous."I.... I don't really want to go..." She mutters.>Okay, let's go talk to Simo about it, then.>Come on, at least give it a try first.>Where do you want to go, then?>Other

>>27074895I understood Bragg. I really did. Caff was the one that hit me hard in the feels.
>>27075000>Caff was the one that hit me hard in the feels.That's because it came out of NOWHERE. With Bragg, you could see it coming, you knew in the buildup that Cuu was about to try and kill him. But with Caff, it's a sudden moment of intense violence all the way at the end of the book, and before you even have time to really adjust to the idea that "Caff's dead", the book ends. Plus you gotta feel something for Criid, I mean he died and she didn't even get to say goodbye. No touching last words, nothing. One minute he's there, the next he's gone.
>>27074729"So where do you want to go, then?" You ask."Well, I always did want to see the Randgriz War Museum..." Morgan shifts nervously. "This is my first time in Randgriz.""Let's see what we can do." You nod.>Ask permission from Simo to break off from the group.>Just ditch them while they're distracted.>Other

>>Ask permission from Simo to break off from the group.
>>27075103Oh I know. I'm just saying that's why it works. Bragg's death was a blow, a hard one, but it still felt comfortable, in a way, because it was built up to. But with Caff, it's just a sudden terrifying moment where you have a character you care about, almost a friend after so many books, stolen from you.I cried for Bragg, but I fucking WEPT for Caff.>>27075139Through early morning fog I seevisions of the things to bethe pains that are withheld for meI realize and I can see
>>27075091You briefly consider just sneaking off with Morgan, but then you realized that was just plain rude. Dad taught you to have better manners than that, after all."Hey, um, Simo?" You tap your senior's shoulder lightly."Huh? What's up?" Simo asks."Hey, I don't know if you noticed, but Morgan doesn't really seem comfortable with going on a tavern run, and he said he sort of wanted to go see the Randgriz War Museum. You think I can take him there and show him the sights?"Simo take a long, good look at you, almost bordering on a glare.>roll 1d20

Whether he knows you know or not. You're not sure what would happen if does suspect you."All right, I'll allow it." Simo finally gives in. "But I have to remind you, PLEASE do not get into any trouble. You're not the only military personnel taking a day off in Randgriz.""Got it, sir.""And you don't let Morgan out of your sight. God knows what will happen if he gets lost out here.""Yes sir.""And if you need to find us, well..." Simo hands you a map with several markers drawn on it. "Just head to any one of these taverns and ask around for us. If we haven't been there yet, just wait for us to arrive. If we already passed through, head for the next one.

>>27075861And just like that, the War Museum is right where you remember it. Also double fortunate is that it's still open. You've always vaguely recalled the museum always having finicky hours. It just never seemed to stay open long enough, but you're digressing here."Wow..." Morgan's eyes widen when she gets her first glimpse of the museum.It's a rather large, regal building, with great stone pillars and reliefs surrounding the more modern interior. Outside, right in front of the war museum is a bronze reproduction of the famous Edelweiss, standing at the entrance like a stalwart, implacable defender."So this is what Edelweiss looks like..." Morgan breathes as she brushes a hand along the side of the bronze sculpture.>If you love this, then wait till you get inside.>I never took you for a tank enthusiast.>Other

>>27076288Potentially. Also knowing where you might be able to get a well-placed round in to hit crew or maybe throw a track if you're lucky.
So what's the chance of seeing replicas of Fenrir and Kilroy here?
>>27076346Speaking of tanks, I wonder what Runaround is going to drive. Personally, I would choose a Light Tank like the AMX 13.
>>27076346Hell, that ain't all, you can also bust all of their parascopes and visors. Makes knowing what the fuck a lot harder.
>>27076407Depending on what we're up against, a Light is probably a poor choice. Medium at least, unless we have DAMN good intel that works for Lights.>>27076420Exactly. Sniper is support, and blinding a tank is a great way to let Lancers gang up on it with a greater chance of survival.
>>27076512Well if it's a Medium you want, there's always the Bat. Chatillon 25t
>>27076512Except that some light tanks are air insertable, which will make them more useable for us. I think something more analogous to an airdroppable assault gun would make more sense given our unit composition. Maximize armor and gun for the given weight.
>>27076616Damn, this is why I love the French Tank Tech Tree. They just so happened to have a prototype tank that can be airdropped. The ELC AMX.
>>27076616Why not just take a wheeled AFV and put a lightweight tank cannon on the top, like the Stryker Mobile Gun System?
>>27076576Maybe. I think, in the end, the mission would dictate what we give Runaround more than anything else. I just have a personal love of Mediums.>>27076616 See previous statement. Also, while I do like that idea for flexibility in the field, I'm concerned about taking hits, which will inevitably happen at some point.
>>27076699Actually, calling it a tank is more than a little inaccurate. It's a reconnaissance vehicle.
>>27076706Why bother with the extra mechanism necessary for the turret? On the stryker MGS, it breaks. A lot. Had a buddy who was a gunner on one. Said the damn thing was always fucking broken. Perhaps a wheeled AFG with a casemate style body?
>>27076407Does it have to be a tank? What if our unit needs to quickly get around town? Desanting is fun, but I'd rather we be surrounded by a few inches of armor when we pull up to an enemy base.With that in mind, I propose that we take a run of the mill wheeled APC, slap on another pair of wheels, give it a bit more firepower in the form of maybe a combined grenade launcher/fifty cal turret, and have it able to reach a goodly top speed even with two or three of its wheels knocked out, while still having a good amount of armor all around to protect from everything but a tank shell, because if we're taking tank shells, we're right fucked anyhow.
>>27076898You mean like a BMP? Though the driver might die if they run over a landmine.
>>27076923A BMP-like platform, yes. We need some sort of do-all IFV platform that can be dropped from planes, most likely has amphibious capabilities, goes at a decent enough speed, has a bit of bite, and enough armor to take anything short of not-TOW-rockets/tank shells
>>27077011why do i get the feeling it's going to turn out like the Bradley all over again?
>>27076898Meh, I think a fast AFV with a good gun is going to be the way to go. We can climb on board if we need to need to relocate quickly.
>>27077011The question is, should our vehicle be able to take out tanks or infantry?
>>27077011No, we need to be more focused on what a small unit engaged in fights with numerically superior forces actually needs. That is not a BMP, but rather a focused AFV with the good speed and a weapon sufficient to defeat enemy armor and breach hardpoints. We don't need to be sitting in a metal box holding our dicks.
>>27076176"I never took you as a tank enthusiast." You say, grinning at Morgan's childlike wonder. "I would've thought a sniper like you would utterly hate them.""Yeah, well, from where I come from, you grow up having a healthy respect for tanks." Morgan smiles. "What do you think they did with the real one?""The original Edelweiss? No clue." You shrug. "There's lot's of stories going around. Some say it got sold off to some private buyer, others say it got trashed in some accident, and others say it's locked away in some warehouse somewhere.""And what do you think?""Me? Personally, I think Welkin just took it home and put it back in his garage where it belongs." You shrug. "But, that's not nearly as interesting as the other theories, though.""I guess you're right." Morgan smiles. Goddamn, she should smile more often. She looks really cut when she does "Come on, I wanna see what's inside!"With that, you see Morgan literally SKIPPING her way to the front doors. Fortunately, out here, people wouldn't be certain of Morgan's gender anyways, so it wasn't as odd as it would have been at school. You just shake you head and follow close behind.And you spend the next few hours just browsing the rows of tanks Gallia had collected in the past two Europan Wars. Gallian tanks, Imperial tanks, and even some donated Federation and Emmerian tanks were out there in full force. There were even a couple of ultra rare Gallian Royal Guard variant tank destroyers. The regular ones alone were hard enough to find!And Morgan's just having the time of her life, carefully examine each and every armored vehicle you come across.However, at this point, you come to a new section of the museum. Here, the rows of tanks ended to give way to a newer weapon.Airplanes.(cont)
>>27076407>>27076699I can reaffirm that the ELC kicks ass. Hell I took it up versus the best heavies in the game with no problems.We will need an awful lot of crack for the driver though.
>>27077102Suspended in the air, you see the original ISARA biplane in all of its glory. This was a particularly revered artifact by Gallia, as it is the very first documented heavier than air aircraft capable of flying. You know of many foreign museums have been constantly pleading the Archduchess allow it to be loaned out, but it was a Gallian treasure that would stay in Gallia. However, right behind the biplane was another plane that sort of resembled a Condor, though it was bulkier and was a two seater instead of one.And then you remember. It was THAT plane. Oh dear, the story behind that one..."Huh, I don't remember seeing this plane before." Morgan frowns. "Is this some kind of failed model?""No... it's just a prototype." You squeak."Hmmmm, the second aircraft capable of flight. The ISARA X2..." Morgan narrows her eyes. "The Demonflight?"It was... a pretty hilarious and slightly embarrassing story...>Just laugh it off.>Well, you might as well tell her.>Other
>>27077117>>Well, you might as well tell her.
>>27077117>Well, you might as well tell her.STORYTIME
>>27077117>Well, you might as well tell her.This sounds like an interesting story.
>>27077117>Well, you might as well tell her.
>>27077117>>Well, you might as well tell her.Goddammit Qyburn. This story is his fault, I know it.
>>27077117>TELL THE STORY
>>27077117>Well, you might as well tell her.TO THE SKIES, BROTHERS
>>27077117CODEX ENTRY UNLOCKEDSee, it all started about eighteen or so years ago. The Demons were still high off the end of the Second Europan War, and the academy wasn't quite fully established yet. However, Qyburn was still going at it, advancing the field of weapons research in leaps and bounds. In just a few short years, he had managed to copy and later improve on Isara's basic flight principles, which created the I-X2, the predecessor to the Condor.Meanwhile, Sam had left Castle Sturmfuhrer for Randgriz in order to visit her family, despite the fact she was heavily pregnant at the time. While the doctors discouraged any sort of long distance travel they seemed to agree that she wouldn't be going into labor any time soon.And, because Fate had a sense of humor, Sam started going to labor shortly after she reached Randgriz.Meanwhile, Jager was still running things at Castle Sturmfuhrer when received the news. Unfortunately for him, he wouldn't be able to witness the birth of his twins, considering Randgriz was halfway across Gallia. No form of transport would get there in time.Well, GROUND transport, anyways.(cont)
>>27077437So, what started as an innocent question to Qyburn about how fast the I-X2 would reach Randgriz ended with the craft being commandeered, with Jager piloting and Qyburn giving him a crash course on how to operate the controls from the rear seat. Suffice to say, the ride was a pretty wild one...Approximately three hours later, the citizens of Randgriz were disturbed when they heard an alien, roaring noise as the I-X2 screamed past overhead. It then proceeded to crash land on the hospital lawn, where Jager immediately leaped out of the cockpit, cold cocked a police man who tried to stop him, and proceeded to enter the hospital to see to his wife and newly born children.Besides giving the I-X2 a very interesting backstory to tell to younger generations, the implications of the flight were vast, as it explicitly showed to Gallian High Command how easily a single plane could breach all of the fortified lines of defense erected around their very own capital.Afterwards, the Gallian National Arsenal's full resources were retooled for the research and production of aircraft for military applications, and the rest is history.(cont)
>>27077451I FUCKING KNEW IT.
>>27077451Well that was one hell of a ride.
>>27077451What a dedicated husband.
>>27077451So, Jager is Gallia's own Earle E Johnson?For those who don't know, Earle E Johnson is the smartass who, during WWII, took off in his personal plane with a payload of three sandbags and, from 500 feet AGL, dropped them on top of three war plants. The next morning, he called the factories and informed them that they had been "bombed" the night before, and to check the roofs. All to prove just how much damage a saboteur in a small aircraft could do.
>>27077451I know it won't happen, and I don't particularly want it to happen, BUT...I really really really want to see what would happen if Young and Minna met Jager and Sam. That alone would be the most hilarious writeup ever
>>27077451"That... that's a really damn funny story!" Morgan bursts out in laughter. "Do... do the Twins know this?""Of course they do. It's not exactly something you can just live down." You note wryly. "I guess not." Morgan snickers. "I wonder is there more to this museum?" "Well, there's also the weapons hall." You shrug. "They might still have the Ruhm stored here, or they might have returned to the Empire. I don't quite remember...">roll 1d20

>>27077754Actually, the M60 took it's design quirks from the FG42 and not the MG42....which was blatantly ripped off from a Belgian machinegun.
>>27077774And a mid labour Sam throttling Jaegar for almost killing himself to ride what was essentially a very large buzzbomb into the capital.
>>27077785When you fight Selvaria who is wielding it, you might as well be fighting someone who has a scout's view range, the dakka and ammo clip of a machine gun, and the accuracy of a sniper. That is why I call it a MG-42 equivalent.
>>27077735Well, if we're gonna pull an Ocean's Eleven, we're gonna need to put together a good crew. Do we know anyone who has a good feel on museum security? How about a wheelman? Electronics expert? Con men and pickpockets?

Rolled 15, 17, 1 = 33>>27077613Sure enough, the Ruhm is stored right where you remember it. The massive machine gun, which at one point had served as the infamous Selvaria Bles' main weapon, now sat in an armored glass case for any random passerby to stare at it."Whoa..." Morgan's eyes widen as she looks at the gun. "I heard that this gun was ultra accurate, not just for a machine gun, but for ANY gun.""Yeah, I heard the stories, too." You nod. "Played a lot of hell with Squad 7 when they went up against it. Pretty sure they had blast once they managed to capture it from her, though.""I'm sure they did." Morgan grins. "You know... I just had a really STUPID idea...""Oh?""I wanna put a scope on it.">Heh, that does sound kinda stupid...>It would make one mean sniper rifle, then.>Other

>>27077884>Let's steal it.Blame the alcohol.
>>270779972.286 kilometers, to be exact. A record that stood until March 2002, when Corporal Rob Furlong, of 3rd Battalion, Princess Patricia's Canadian Light Infantry, beat it with a kill at 2,430 meters, using a McMillan Tac-50 rifle.Master Corporal Aaron Perry of the same unit made another Hathcock beating kill (2,310 meters) in the same day, using the same model of rifle.Furlong's record held until November 2009, when Corporal of Horse Craig Harrison, of the UK's Life Guards, set a new record with a pair of consecutive kills at 2,475 meters, using an Accuracy International L115A3 .338 Lapua Magnum. Harrison himself has stated that it was possible due to him having ideal conditions for his shot (no winds, high visibility, and mild weather) but this is, at least in part, modesty, as that is one HELL of a shot.
>>27077884"Heh, that would make one mean sniper rifle, then." You laugh. "Pity it's just stuck in this dusty old case.""Yeah...." Morgan sighs as she touches the glass. "Such a pity."You're pretty sure the same though goes through both your heads, to steal the thing, but you quickly banish the thought. Stealing a war relic was pretty bad idea all around."Hey, maybe Q-Labs could make a copy or something." Morgan points out, as if she's read your mind."Yeah, I guess we could always ask them." You laugh nervously.>roll 1d20

>>27078880>>27078894Well, it was fun while it lasted
>>27078894DON'T WE HAVE A POTENTIAL FOR THIS?!
>>27078911Um. Don't panic. Isn't it best of three?
>>27078915We already used it up/
>>27078880>>27078894hey Merc Command, can we combine these such that it's an epic crit and crit fail at the same time?
>>27078919Which is a 10>>27078923Noooooooo *Cry*
>>27078883yo, I told you guys. I fucking told you all.
>Every roll with great emotional significance>PERFECTLY AVERAGE
>>27078928As in morgan tries it but we get spied upon by others?
>>27078894I swear to god. If we just locked out Morgan as a romance, I am gonna be pissed. :|
>>27078915WE BLEW IT ON THE FIRST ONEOH SHITWE'RE GONNA LEWD MORGANLEWD HER SO HARDSHE'LL MANIFEST HER VALKYUR POWERS
Well, what now?
>>27078919That was more disbelief than panic. And last I checked, Merc uses a Nat 1 in this case to cancel out the highest roll, leaving us with just the 10. Not terrible, but like I said, a bit surprising to see a 1 and 20 so close.
Dohohohohho, competing crits call for something special!>>27078915It already got used up on a previous 1.>>27078883"Luke? Luke!" You hear a very familiar voice call out to you."Oh, Lara!" You grin and wave her over. "How's your grad trip been going?" "Oh, pretty good!" Lara nods, though she's obviously distracted by something, as her eyes are shifting between you and Morgan. "I wasn't interrupting anything important, was I...?">What say?
>>27078894Oh come on....., I really don't want Lucas to be taken up as gay.Then again, I'm pretty sure this is what everyone wanted deep inside
>>27078972FIRE UP THE INNUENDOTRON
>>27078972"Not really, just grabbing a bite to eat before finding the rest of the class. What are you up to?"
>>27078972I LOVE YOU MERC.
>>27078972Oh boy.>"Um... it's nothing. Just some mustard. Yeah."
>>27078972Is it too late to change the subject and try to meet up with the girls or guys?
>>27078972No, I was just having some lunch with Morgan.Oh Morgan, this is my sister, Lara. And Lara, this is my friend Morgan.
>>27078972"Nothing, sis. We're just sharing sausages like REAL MEN."
>>27079001yes this play it off she saw nothing
>>27078972"Oh not at all, care to join us?"tell her about the amazing museum.
>>27078972Oh god, I was scared for a second. WE STILL HAVE A CHANCE
>>27078974People thinking we're gay is fun to calm your phobia, we aren't actually.>>27079020hahahahah
>>27078972"Oh you know, the usual. Looking at museums, walking around town, getting dinner~It's been a great day."
>>27078928>>27078947Mogan is extremely touched, but unfortunately, the rest of the squad just finished shopping and Lucina was going to show off her new dress until she spots us, and runs away crying
>>27078972"Morgan, this is Lara, Lara, Morgan."
>>27079001Though this may be misinterpreted, I'll second this.
>>27079040>Lucina>show off>dressOnly if it has a thigh holster for her knife and a good place to conceal her sidearm.
>>27079001I'll support this just because it's normal. I don't mind spending time with Morgan because I'm legitimately curious. But the misunderstandings everyone keeps gushing about was funny at first, now that it's actually happening I don't really care for this, and if we end up on the Morgan route because of it I'd be pretty miffed.
>>27078972Oh we had a really great day together, just the two of us, going to the museum, walking around town, eating dinner, enjoying each other's company in private.I really hope nope of the rest of the squad spotted us or overheard us. We're trying to keep something private between us, if you get what I'm saying (nudge nudge)
>>27079068Inb4 she does this in public and infront of lucas
>>27078972Complete deadpan"No, you're not interrupting. I was just grabbing a bite to eat with me good friend Morgan, who is my best bro and I hang out with all the time. Yeah, that."
>>27079039"Oh you know, the usual. Looking at museums, walking around town, getting dinner." You nod. "It's been a great day.""I'm sure it was." Lara chuckles. She seems... a lot perkier than usual for some reason. Odd."Hey, so what have you been doing lately, then?""Oh well, two of my flight members are trying to do the Demon's Mile, so I've been tagging along to keep an eye on them." She points her thumb behind her, and you can see two fairly inebriated pilots stumbling down the sidewalk singing loud and very badly slurred folk songs. "Thankfully, we're almost at the last one.">Hey, some our squad is trying the Demon's Mile, too. Mind if we tag along?>Four words. Lucina. In. A. Dress.>Good luck with that. Me and Morgan got other plans.
>>27079162>Four words. Lucina. In. A. Dress.I believe it's time

>>27079162>Good luck with that. Me and Morgan got other plans.

>>27079162>>Four words. Lucina. In. A. Dress.Honestly, this I must see.
>>27079173Yes. Play up the couple angle.
>>27079162>>27079171>>27079172>>27079176>>27079183INB4 Lucina chooses something tacticool. Probably boobplate or something
>>27079204Best Char is with them. I'm not afraid.
>>27079130>implying she doesn't keep it up between her shoulder blades, and somehow have the flexibility to reach it there quickly when the need arisesIf her mother was The Boss, there's only one fictional woman capable of encapsulating just how badass she must be, and that woman holds the rank of Major.>>27079162>Four words. Lucina. In. A. Dress.
>>27079162>Four words. Lucina. In. A. Dress.Please fellow anons let this come true!
>>27079218And now I can't get rid of the mental image of Lucina wearing THAT.You bastard. You glorious, horrible, wonderful, awful bastard.Although she only did the between-the-shoulder-blades carry when she was wearing that wierd "sleeves and the very top of a jacket" thing. She carried small-of-the-back when wearing the normal jacket.And wouldn't that, combined with our status as Heavy Weapons Guy, make us Batou, meaning any romantic pursuit of her is doomed?
>>27079162>Hey, some our squad is trying the Demon's Mile, too. Mind if we tag along?I still want to see Morgan+Lucas+Tier One drunk. Is this too much to ask?!
>>27079325Have to wait for her to become a loli then
If Morgan really is a Valkyria, then she needs a Valkyrian artifact to channel her powers. Maybe Sparky's stone has something to do with it.
>>27079325I doubt she'd be that curvy though, being half Darcsen.
>>27079347Except he STILL didn't get any then, and she took off shortly afterwards to go on her whole journey of self-discovery thing. She was grateful to him as a friend, but she just doesn't see him in that light. Poor guy is so far in the friendzone he doesn't even know what not being their looks like anymore.
>>27079402Ragnite implants?That can't be comfortable.
>>27079413No, I meant that...Okay, the "Ragnite, son" line is a parody of "Nanomachines, son" from Metal Gear Rising, which is about cyborgs. The Major is a cyborg. I was trying to imply Ragnite-powered cybernetics.And yes, I realize how miserably I failed, and I apologize.
>>27079162"Lara, I got four words for you." You say. "Lucina. In. A. Dress.""Wow..." Lara's eyes widen. "WOW, I gotta see this!""I know, right?""Uhhhh, what about your wingmates?" Morgan points out."Ah, well, Fleur can keep an eye on them, I guess." Lara turns to confirm with her wingmate. "Yeah, she'll keep an eye on them. Any idea where Lucina is?""Where do you think Charlotte and Falynn would take Lucina?""Hmmmm, I think I got an idea....">roll 1d20

>>27079464>>27079467Still got it.
>>27079467The fuck? Have we gotten a 1 on almost every roll this session, because it really feels like we have.
>>27079464>>27079467>>27079477Well... At least we got a 16.
>>27079495I just hope one of those rolls don't end with Lucas dressing up as a girl.
>>27079515Yes.Come on Lucina! Your vengeance at Lucas' abandonment of you must surface!
>>27079497You really think a boosted 19 will be enough to save us from a nat 1? Yeah right. Critfail is here and it's all your fault.
>>27079464Lara guides you to apparently what are supposed to be the trendiest shops in Randgriz. Not that you would know, since you're a guy and not concerned with any of that stuff, though you notice Morgan can't hide the look of fascination as you pass by the windows featuring all the latest fads in female fashion.However, the first couple tries turn out to be busts, but the third time proves to be the charm. Lara leads you into yet another store, and as you move towards the back, you see it.Whoa.Whoa.WHOA.It was far better than you expected it to be. In fact, even Lara and Morgan are flat out speechless at the loose, yet form fitting white dress Lucina was wearing."L-Lucas? Lara? Morgan? W-what are you doing here?" Lucina blinks in surprise.>Sorry, Lucas isn't here at the moment. Please leave a message at the beep.>Compliment her dress.>Other

>>27079694And Lara start wondering if Lucas is Bi.
>>27079724"You slut! You can't have both sides of the pie!"
>>27079628>Lara...Morgan...FORK, someone pinch me
>>27079628Your mouth flaps open and closed, but no sound comes out. You expecting something epic, but not something THIS epic. It was like Icarus flying too close the sun. You dabbled with things you should not have and now you have been burned and are falling to you imminent doom-"Earth to Lucas." Lucina says as she flicks you in the forehead."Gah!" You blink, finally regaining your senses. "Oh, hey Lucina, uhh... what's up?""This feels so weird." Lucina frowns."Well, I think you look GORGEOUS in it!" Lara squeals. "You need to do this more often!""Yeah... it looks nice..." Morgan mumbles, suddenly becoming much more meek and introverted now that she was among strangers again, though she seemed a bit more down than usual."Wait a minute...." You narrow your eyes. "Lucina. Where are the Twins?">roll 1d20
>>27079628>Compliment her dress.Both options seem good, but for some reason I think with a girl like Lucy a direct compliment wont backfire, where she may take us losing it the wrong way. But maybe I'm just paranoid and this is the: Best and Good option. Also I'd like to start a campaign against spaghetti, that shit is getting old.

>>27079892Morgan is little sisterMorgan is not for lewds
So, would managing to stammer/shout out "you look gorgeous" here be a good or bad thing?
>>27079903No.Morgan is friend. Still not for lewds,but that is because all of our lewds are saved up for Lucina.
>>27079836INBOUNDDAMMIT LARA YOU WERE SUPPOSED TO BE FLYING TOP COVER.
>>27079903We already have a little sister, silly Anon.Morgan is for misunderstandings.
>>27079914Probably good, honestly. Lucina isn't exactly very feminine personality-wise, so she's probably pretty embarrassed right now, thinks she looks ridiculous, et cetera.
>>27079903>>27079919>>27079925Well, we can't be sure about anything yet. All that is hinted is that she may be from the Empire.
>>27079903Eh. Don't really wanna go with the first girl like VMQ1. Morgan's too adorable.

>>27079846You don't like this. Things were quiet. Too quiet. You deep in enemy territory and you had to get the hell out."Well, it was nice seeing you Lucina, but we've really got to meet up with the rest of the guys before they get worried so... wegottagoreallyfastsobye!"You grab Morgan and make a mad dash for the front door. You see movement and duck as two sets of arms lash out to try and grab you."Ha! Too slow!" You sneer as you leave Charlotte and Falynn in the dust."Agh! So close!" Charlotte curses. "You haven't seen the last of us, Lucaaaaaas!""See you later tonight!" You wave, but you don't stop, which is fortunate because you barely manage to dodge Sparky and Mary-Kate as well. "What is it with girls wanting me to crossdress?!?" You wail as you successfully extract yourself from the shop."You have to admit, you do have the looks for it." Morgan grins slyly."Ha ha, no."You might as well try and head off the rest of Alpha Team. You glance at the map and decide to just make a beeline for the last stop. Gassenarls' End.>roll 1d20
>>27079957Personally I'm gunning for the tacticool darcsen this time. This like a the second chance with Tarin.

>>27080021If played for laughs it could me amusing>>27080049>>27080050>>27080053GUNNER TOO SUBTLE
As much as Merc is teasing it right now, I really, really hope we don't end up in drag.
>>27080062The first girl also completely betrayed us. Sam was in essence the first girl, and even then people argued that Karla was a good choice.
>>27080077We have the entire quest to try to survive, the odds are going to catch up eventually.
>>27080062Ok, ok, first girl that didn't murder the MC's entire family.
>>27080034Lucina's fine, but I prefer Morgan for her secrecy. It's intriguing.>>27080038Indeed, we'll just have to wait and see.>>27080083Basically that. Karla technically was first, but I had a hard time seeing Jager get back with the woman who betrayed her, so she slipped my mind.
>>27080117I agree, I vote to spend time with Morgan because I'm legitimately curious, but I'm just not interesting in waifuing her. I really like her character though. The only problem I have is with the way spending time with girls seems to work is Finding out her secret = Morgan route.
>>27080117I'll admit that I'm biased because I wrote Mary-Kate but I want to see more with her...even if it isn't as a love interest.It's a bias though, so it's whatever
personally hoping for Lucina and just be great friends with Morgan.>would like both but that is wishful thinking.I'm very pleased with how VMQ1 ended. Even though I was pro Karla, Sam just seemed the more obvious choice, considering everything that happened.
>>27080162Give it time. I'm doing the same with Runaround, but there's a whole Quest ahead of us. We'll see what happens. Merc does a good job of handling things and not leaving anyone completely out of the loop.
Rolled 15>>27080117>>27080156Honestly I'm going with Morgan for the long troll.
>>27080156And even if it doesn't it will anyway because the guys who ARE waifuing a given character always make every interaction with that character an excuse to push said character's route. Everyone does it, no one group is more guilty than another, but it's still annoying.
>>27080117I just can't wait to see Morgan in a dress and swimsuit...
>>27080053Thankfully, you manage to make it to Gassenarl's End without incident. You just had to dodge several groups of drunks, who ironically kept mistaking Morgan for a girl and kept trying to hit on her. Fortunately, they were too inebriated to really prove much of a threat and they were painfully easy to dodge. Plus, the police were out in force tonight and were quick to shoo or cart away any troublemakers.The tavern itself was situated above the same cliff that Mom and her friends had driven a flaming tank off of. In fact, the big attraction to this place was the glass bottom patio, which gave patrons a birds eye view of the tank wreckage which was still sitting at the foot of the cliff.Inside the tavern itself, there was a pretty big ruckus as the men of Alpha Team were celebrating their completion of the Demons' Mile, a feat attempted by many but completed only by a few. "Ah, so I see you two are still okay." Simo nods to you and Morgan. "You're not drinking?" You ask. NOBODY could stay that sober."Well, somebody's got to make sure these clowns don't get into trouble." Simo sighs. Sure enough, Runaround, Edwin, and Bragg seem to having a good, alcohol fueled time. While Bragg seems more or less lucid, Edwin and Runaround are completely lost causes. You're not even sure how the both of them are even still standing."I'm impressed the two freshies actually managed to make it this far." Simo nods. "First time Bragg tried he actually couldn't finish.""Wow, I guess that' pretty impressive." You whistle.>Go and try and talk to the others.>This is a historical place! Explore a bit!>Take Morgan to see the remains of Gassenarl's tank.>Other

>>27080223>Go and try and talk to the others.Morgan's cool, but let's try to get to know Bragg. Plus anything a sloshed Edwin says can and will be used against him later.
>>27080223>Take Morgan to see the remains of Gassenarl's tank.Been on a military history binge all day, may as hit it up.

>>27080223>This is a historical place! Explore a bit!
>>27080223You decide to hit up the rest of your squad. However, at this point, it might be a bit too late. Runaround just keeps making car noises like a little kid pretending to be a race car driver, while Edwin just seems really, REALLY somber. "Hey, Edwin, are you feeling all right, man?""Itsssss nothinnggg." Edwin mutters."Are you sure, it definitely looks like something.""It's just... what happened, man? Belka.... used to be on top of the world! And then.... it all came... crashing down..."You don't even know what the hell he's talking about, but at this point it seems Edwin's fallen asleep or passed out. Either way it didn't look like you were getting any more out of him.Bragg on the other hand is still going strong, downing another pint of beer."Oh hey there, Lucas, was it?" Bragg grins as he looks down at you. "You want to give one a try?">No thanks, I don't drink.>I guess I could try just a bit...>Other

>>27080919And shes wearing Meido.
>>27080919How that would be fun. It would be like a most extreme version of "The Hangover"
>>27080895Or the twins will get their hands on us.>captcha: nnjecy befeechingI uh, what?
>>27080943>>27080939We will now know how she gets info.
>>27080949No Lucas, you are the Meido.
>>27080951>"tell me about the supply routes or you get the feather duster again"
>>27080949if what you saw was one of those old-school S's it could be beseeching. Mayhaps the Twins are beseeching Nnjecy for maximum fluffiness in the nonconsensual hairand otherpetting that is about to commence
>>27080784>>27080786The shot only seems to blur your vision and your thoughts even more. Hell, it actually feels as if somebody else was controlling your actions right, like some cruel and fickle god personally made it his mission to mess with your life."Hey Mooooooorrrrgaaaaaan~" You coo, stumbling your way over to her."L-Lucas? What are you-"And then you just lean forward, grab Morgan's head, and give a big, sloppy kiss on the mouth. However, Morgan struggles and pushes you off, sending you sprawling on a nearby table.However, one look into Morgan's eyes and you immediately sober up, at least to realize that you've done something terribly, terribly wrong. Tears well up in Morgan's eyes and she turns and runs out of the tavern."W-wait... Morgan!" You croak, but before you can get any farther a powerful hand grabs you by the collar and pulls you back."Bragg, party's over! Drop the drink and go get Morgan back here!"The carefree joy melts off Bragg's face. He nods and rushes out the door after Morgan."Lucas, you are going to explain what the FUCK that was all about?!" Simo scowls. "You're skating on some very fucking thin ice here.">Feign ignorance. You're drunk, after all!>Tell him the truth.>Other
>>27080968God dammit. Just God dammit.
>>27080968>>Tell him the truth.Rides over.
>>27080968>>Feign ignorance. You're drunk, after all!
>>27080968>OtherWwwwwwwhhhhhhheeeeeeeeeerrrree wwwaaaaah eeeeeerrrrrroggggggggge mmuuuuuuuuhhh hhhiiiiissssssh. eeeeeeeerrrrrrrrnnnnnooooouuuuu mmmmmmmmmaaaahhhh ooooooooaaaaar.
>>27080968>Tell him the truth.
>>27080968I actually frowned for real.>Tell him the truth.BUT NOT IN FRONT OF EVERYONE.
>>27080968>>Other>Get a gun, fire into the ceiling while yelling
>>27080968>>OtherGet out of the door after Morgan
>>27080968"Oh god, what have I done?!">Tell him the truth.
>>27080968>>OtherEject Jacket.Hoof it after Morgan.
>>27080968Let's start with "I am not good with alcohol" and continue into how Morgan confessed her female-ness to us. We're probably too drunk to play gay here
Rolled 9>>27081008Yeah, this.
>>27080968>OtherScrew Simo.Morgan takes priority now.Headbutt him if he won't let go.
>>27081020stop wasting decent dice rolls on posts not needing them.
>>27080999>>27081008>>27081024After Morgan by any means necessary.
>>27080968>OtherLie back and think of Gallia
>>27080968>Tell him the truth.I wouldn't drunkenly chase after the girl that just ran away after I just assaulted her. Also god can you say route locks in thread 5? Too soon, man.
some knight we turned out to be.
I go away for a while and look what happens.>>27080968>Tell him the truthDAMAGE CONTROL TIEM
Doesn't breaking knight's honor = beast coming out?And lucas is drunk right now?This is not good right now.
>>27081058People aren't themselves when drunk. Simple as that people.
>>27081058Yeah no kidding, I was thinking the same thing. I didn't even want to kiss Morgan, drunken or sober so that double sucks.
>>27080968>Just pointing out that is NOT a route lock. Sure it set you back but you can still salvage things between yourself and Morgan."Can you please let go of me, sir?" You ask."What?" Simo narrows his eyes."Can you please let go of me, SIR? I can't apologize to Morgan if you keep holding me down like this.">roll 1d20
>>27081090EXCELLENCEThis is just like my chinese cartoons
Rolled 17>>27081090YES!!!!!!!!! athousand times YEESSS
>>27081090Wahaha crazy dice gods!
>>27081110IMO, this has been more dramatic than Jager's and Sam's relationship.
Rolled 8>>27081090The Roose is loose!
>>27081081>>27081090GOD WILLS IT.Dis gon be good.
>>27081118Ride never ends.
>>27081058Let's see mixing bad dice luck with typical /tg/ decision making.If it was any worse, it'd be like fucking Cupcake.Not that anyone'd learn their lession.
>>27081118Well nobody has gotten shot yet, so hold that thought.
>>27081110we're not even remotely close to redemption, yet.
Again people, drunk messes with thinking and inhibitions. Don't go thinking Lucas is a shitty knight just because he couldn't handle alcohol the first time he tried it.
>>27081136I cant see how taking a drink with future comrades was a part of bad decision making.NOW if we drank in the future, that would be poor decision making.
>>27081150This guy gets it.
>>27081150even considering the poor dice luck?
>>27081150Yeah bad decision making would be: you are now very drunk.>Cause mayhem in the city>Call it quits and pass out somewhere>Steal a shy girls first kiss Then everybody picking that last option.
>>27081179We've historically had godly dice in drinking rolls.
>>27081187Jager did, not so much Lucas it seems.
>>27081179Dice aren't an IC thing our character can take into consideration.>>27081186Indeed, it just happened. We didn't pick any.
>>27081090Simo glares at you for what seems like a very long time, and you glare right back at him. You failed your knightly duties tonight, but never again."Fine. Go." Simo sighs and lets go of you. "Don't screw it up this time or I will personally END you, private. Is that clear?""Crystal." You nod and bolt out of the door.You meet Bragg outside, who is actually just returning to the tavern. The downcast look on his face is all you need to see."That kid's damn fast." He sighs. "Lost track him and I've go no idea where he could've gone off to."Actually, you have an idea. Without a word, you run off into the night.You find Morgan sitting underneath the statue of Edelweiss at the museum. It was pretty obvious she'd be here since it was the only landmark she knew about. Not wanting to startle her, you approach slowly and carefully."Go away." Morgan says coldly when she sees you approach. "You're the same as all the rest of them.">What say?
>>27081201''I don't know what to say,Morgan...I can't handle my liquor apparently...Didn't mean to hurt you, I-I just wasn't myself, clear in the head you know?''Or some such.
>>27081201Morgan, there is no way for me to excuse myself for doing something like that. From now on, I swear on not my knight's honor, but my personal honor, that I will never do something like that again. I swear to be "Your" Knight from now on. If there is anything for me to possible do to make up for what happened. I am at your command.
>>27081201"there is nothing I can say that that can even remotely express how sorry I am, but I really am sorry. What I did should not have happened but it did and on my word as a knight, as a friend, I will make it up to you, if you'll let me." - kneel.
>>27081234scrap the >I swear to be "Your" Knight from now on.and its decent
>>27081234I don't know, the being 'your knight' part seems to indicating treating her like a damsel.
Rolled 3>>27081201I'm drunk, and I'm not entirely sure what you are talking about, but I definitely know I'm not in the right frame of mind and that I really hurt you in some way. Right now I feel really bad about how much I hurt you, and sober me in the morning is going to feel even worse, and not just hangover. I need to apologize and make it up to you right now, and I will fully make it up to you in the future as well.
>>27081234 Use this one:>Morgan, there is no way for me to excuse myself for doing something like that. From now on, I swear on not my knight's honor, but my personal honor, that I will never do something like that again. If there is anything for me to possible do to make up for what happened. I am at your command.
>>27081201"It was my fault. Yes. I didn't know I would be so weak against alcohol. I shouldn't have taken that drink and what I did... was inexcusable. I think you probably don't want to see me now, or probably ever again but I at least want to promise this to you. A Knight does not break his word. Even if you don't want to see me any more, your secret is safe with me and I will sooner die than let it be known."
>>27081234I agree with >>27081257, remove the part about swearing fealty to the girl and I second. That's some end game knightly love, don't use that card just yet. I don't want to pick a girl this early.
>>27081274>>27081276A little bit of both.
>>27081274>>27081276one of these work for me.
>>27081274This one is worded much better, changing my support to this one.
>>27081274>>27081276Incorp these two
All this looks bad but the thought that lucas is tripping all the important flags keeping popping up in my mind.
Rolled 6>>27081375Duh. It's almost like we trip this flags on purpose.
>>27081375That's cool with me as long as it doesn't stop with her. We have more girls with more flags to raise, then one day we can decide. I just don't want the OTP decided this early.
>>27081201I wonder what she means by 'You're the same as all the rest of them?'She was so pretty all her fellow students kept on hitting on her? Pervs would hit on her all the time and tried to do something unwanted? Or she hates the idea of being coddled and handled like a damsel in distress?
>>27081459Considering she dislikes pervs, I'd put my money on the former.
>>27081459She might have been nearly raped?Probably Simo or someone rescued her from them.
>>27081274"Morgan, there is no way for me to excuse myself for doing something like that." You say, taking a few steps closer to her. "From now on, I swear on not my knight's honor, but my personal honor, that I will never do something like that again. If there is anything for me to possible do to make up for what happened. I am at your command."Morgan just looks at you for a long, while."...anything?""Anything." You nod.Morgan's lips slowly form a smile.-------------------------------"See, I told you he'd look really cute as an Osean maid!" Charlotte grins as he pushes you in front of the mirror. Oh god this was more horrible than you ever imagined."Hmmm, it does have a certain appeal to it." Falynn nods.It probably wouldn't have been as bad if they the Twins were stroking your hair at the same time. This was damn embarrassing."Best. Day. Ever." Sparky grins. "And I didn't even blow anything up!""Oooooh, I wish Charlotte and Falynn would stroke MY hair like that.." Mary-Kate sighs.Meanwhile, Lucina, now changed out of her dress into her normal casual uniform, watches the events from afar, a bit of a smile on her face.Yep. Karma was beeswax."Pleeaaaaaase don't tell anybody else about his." You whimper."Don't worry!" Morgan giggles. "It'll be our little secret~!">And that's all for tonight, folks! I hope you enjoyed the ride as much as I did! Next thread will be Saturday 6-8pm PST!
>>27081511>heOh god I meant she. Don't you dare misinterpret that.
>>27081511Well this just went full circle.G'night tg O7
>>27081511we deserved it, at least nearly everyone will be happy again.
>>27081511Night Merc com.Continue you're the fountain of win that is being you.
>>27081511I'm loving this ride already.Thanks for running Merc.
>>27081511Hahaha.Exactly like my chinese cartoons.
>>27081511I laughed,joyously,Sweet dreams Merc.
>>27081511And thus Lucas's adventure into crossdressing is complete.
Man I knew this would happen. All I can say is what a shitty class trip.
>>27081560It'll come in handy. When he meets up with Elizabeth is forced to become a undercover maid.
>>27081562The door is over there, don't let it hit you on the way out.
>>27081511Saw that coming, still lovin' it. Good Run as always Merc Com.>>27081529She's actually a Charles now? Ha! Wouldn't be VMQ without slips like that.
>>27081598Clever, I never heard that one before.
>>27081592Hm missed a word there.'AND' is forced to become a undercover maid.FOR THE SAKE OF THE MISSION, KNIGHT MAID A GO!
>TRUST IN MERC COMMAND>FAITH IN MERC COMMANDAHAHAHA OH GOD. Everything went better than expected.
>>27081608Don't need to be original when you got the message.
>>27081529That Charlotte.She is a CHAR and a trap
Hmm...I suppose she asked Lucas: "Wear the meido"?Because if she worded it properly, by knights honour, lucas might have to keep donning the meido whenever she says so.I am ok with this
>>27081643Someone enjoys cross dressing.
>>27081621You must be new to this wild ride.
>>27081625I'm sorry I hurt your feelings because you think getting fucked up during a trip, assaulting your friend, and then having to cross dress in front of everybody isn't shitty for Lucas. I'm also sorry you seem to think I'm insulting a quest you like.
>>27081671Oh no, I'm not hurt. Simply put, don't like it? Leave, no one is forcing you to participate.Stories aren't all about victory.
>>27081690dude, take is from an observer, you're taking his comment way to fucking seriously
>>27081690I didn't say I didn't like it, I said what a shitty class trip. Besides telling somebody to leave when you disagree with what they say is such a pissy thing to do, why not just ignore it?
>>27081699Fair enough.>>27081703Tired of negative comments like those I suppose? Regardless I'm dropping it.
>>27081690jesus fuck you're buttflustered
>>27081725not that guy. But who is being unoriginal now?
>>27081744As I said I dropped it, no need to continue this.
>>27081511Neat, what a ride. We found out we can't drink, fixed the problem it caused and got some cross dressing action. Good trip ever.
