You tell your war buddy, Heihachiro Hojo, about everything that has happened, about the rebellion, about the Sidarxi, and about your “friend” in high places. You finish off the glass of bourbon as you tell the story while Hojo listens intently. You write down your real intentions on a note and pass it to Hojo along with your suspicions of surveillance. “So, what's in it for me?” asks Hojo, not skipping a beat. “According to her, the fact that we won't be exterminated. Perhaps she knows about your marriage.” Hojo looks down at the plain wedding band on his finger. He'd gotten it after moving to America. “I haven't seen my wife since '39, you know,” he replies. “INTERESTED. WOULD LOVE TO FIGHT AGAIN,” says his note. “Perhaps, but since she was able to find my sister, maybe you can find your wife.” “She probably died in the invasion, Fritz. I've almost given up,” says Hojo. “THANKS. HOW TO RECRUIT? WHERE?” “What do you say, buddy?” you ask, passing back your response. “Anything for a friend. If anything, this is the lesser evil. Best to deal with the devil you know, right?” he says. “I suppose so, Hojo.” “REBELS, OTHER VETS. YOU KNOW WHERE THEY FREQUENT.” You nod. “Thanks Heihachiro, I appreciate it.” You shake his hand. “Up for a smoke, Fritz?” He pulls out a box of cigarettes and a lighter from a drawer. The orange flames catch one corner of the paper, turning your correspondence to ash. He smiles wickedly and then offers to light your cigarette.

>>27351008>[x] Wait until the morningWe apparently look like shit; better to get some rest, and we have some progress to report if our handler questions us about getting recruits.
You decide to take a taxi back to your apartment so you can actually get some sleep. As you look into the mirror, you realize just how bad you look. Your bleary, bloodshot eyes are set deep into the sockets. You're covered in bruises from the fight. You can barely stand. You shower and take go straight to bed. Your sleep is untroubled by nightmares and memories of old battlefields. You are woken by the sound of someone knocking at your door. This time, instead of waiting for you to get up, whoever it is just waltzes in. You slowly open your eyes and get ready to hurl a pillow at the intruder. The door to your small bedroom opens and you see that it is Yezrina. You throw the pillow at her anyway. She throws it back. “Good morning, Mr. Heller.” “Good morning, Captain. I'm afraid that now is not the best time.” She smiles sweetly and replied, “I don't really care about your time. What I need is for you to be on task. How have things gone so far?” “Hojo said that he was interested. I need to find a few more people.” “Hmm, that's decent progress, but you need to get four more people over the next two days. Is there anything you would like to report?” [ ] Nothing. Go looking. [ ] Tell a half-truth about the rebels being a source of power armor vets. [ ] Other.

Here's a notebook sketch from when I was mulling over the idea. This is to show the evolution of sorts of the general design. There are a few problems with it, one of which is (aside from my artistic abilities or lack thereof) is the two-piece of breastplate. Later sketches have a one-piece breastplate. A further issue is the length of the tassets. Later drawings have them longer to protect the "muscles" which extend from the hips down to just above the knees.

“Well, Hojo was a little reluctant, like I was at first. Eventually, he agreed to go along with it. How are things on your end?” She sighs. “Waiting on your end. Time is of the essence. Get out of bed.” You wave her away to respect your privacy and get dressed. “I'll get the coffee started,” she says. The breakfast is simple, bread and margarine washed down with bitter coffee. She must not be familiar with the human beverage. Time has healed some wounds, but your body still aches. She reads the newspaper and sips some of the coffee herself. You get up to leave when she says, “Best of luck to you.” You nod and go out the door as she remains behind. You stew at the thought of her there in your house, eating your food, reading your books. You shake your head to clear such thoughts. You'll at least be able to drink them away later.
>>27352391You make your way over to the shantytown that sprung up after the war. It just developed into it's own little city, a mess of buildings jumbled together and untouched by any real architect's hand. Hojo was right, you do know where to go. The bar is called “The Ka-Bar,” after that American fighting knife they developed to replace the old trench knife. They made a bigger, heavy duty version that more resembled a large machete for their power armor units. It's nestled between a brothel and some club. It's barred windows and the bullet holes in the front tell a story of conflict. You were there when the ISF decided to sweep the area. As it turned out, the residents were willing to shoot, and police weren't willing to kick in doors and eat a bullet on the way in. You walk in, light up, and sit at the bar. You wait for the bartender to come to you and order a steak sandwich and a beer. You'll need a lot of beer before your through. It's a better vice than amphetamines, thankfully. There are a few faces at this point in time. There's a woman with an iron hand in the corner, blonde hair closely cropped. You'd heard it was bad enough that the Yanks decided to send some women on the front in armor, but this was the first time you'd seen anyone who might fit the bill. There's a young guy at the bar with a raging high and tight, an EGA tattoo and another tattoo of the borrowed totenkopf that Marine Armored Infantry units used during the war. These seem like your most obvious prospects, but there are a few more candidates [ ] Talk to the retired Marine [ ] Talk to the woman [ ] Find someone else [ ] Other

Here we have the untermensch. Xenophiliac, race traitor, sexual deviant. They mock human women while probably wanting to be dressed up as one as they get fucked in the ass by their space elf mistress.Absolutely disgusting.
People who want human women are boring people who are too beta to handle a Sidarxi woman, so they go for the plain submissive human female.

Oh great Brown Elf Domination Fetish Quest is up!
>>27351972You should see about getting a drawfag to do a mockup.I recommend a kind of WW2 style helmet though.A war-era suit and the one the rebels made.
>>27353259I think that was an (unintentional) option, since Yez was obviously that if we chose her. But we've gone to deciding to subverting her. Making it so the humans win so good while keeping the Drow from killing us all.
Actually, if we do it right, we may end up with both.The rebellion is a massive success, yet we do something that makes exterminating us a non-option. Either because of the damages or the cost. So the Drow end up trying to make us an actual ally/partner instead of a disposable puppet.
I think we should take a page out of this mans book.
>>27353250No, but the Sidarxi are basically brown Eldar who aren't dying out.>>27353282So the choices are Brown Space Elf Dominatrix wat do or Brown Space Elf Slave wat do. Joy.
>>27353315Didn't Yezrina mention that there are other galactic powers?Earth is at a strategically important hyperspace junction. I don't see how simply glassing the planet wouldn't be the most economically expedient option if the humans become too expensive to keep under control.It's what we would do in their position.
>>27353634This is true.
>>27353634Yes. OP seemed to have enjoyed the spirit of HFY last thread though.Presumably, there will be a way to win without being wiped out. Be it actually allying with the Drow (our only option until we make second contact) or otherwise.
>>27353634Which is why everyone keeps on shouting HURR, VISIGOTHS. They will have their HFY, even if the quest dies for it.
>>27353634>wouldn't be the most economically expedient option if the humans become too expensive to keep under control.It seemed to me more like they're irrational and came to a weird, fucked up compromise.Had they been rational, they could have uplifted mankind, wiped out (if sociopathic) humans or just ignored us since we aren't a spacefaring society anyway, nor a true threat.
>>27353681>our only option until we make second contactOh man, that'll end in such hilarity! It'll be like backstabbing the Russians in order to get in good with the Chinese, because they promise us that after the Russians are defeated, they'll sponsor our membership into the Galactic Union and guarantee our freedom.>Haha, look at the stupid gweilo!>laughing Space Chinese
>>27353716Apparently there were some outside pressures on them too. From the sound of it, we were a bit of a cashgrab. They enslaved us just to make sure others couldn't.
>>27353716As I've mentioned in previous threads, the current situation is the result of a compromise that left nobody especially satisfied.
>>27353705Yeah, look at what happened to the visigoths. Just another of history's failures.
“Hey,” you say, grabbing your beer and sandwich, “Do you mind if I sit with you Miss...” “Natalie, Natalie Kupchenko,” she says, “What's the occasion, Mister...” “Fred Heller, but call me Fritz.” “Heller, as in the German half of that bar just outside the Japantown?” “That's right,” you admit. “Looking for a better half?” she bluntly asks. You raise an eyebrow, “Pardon?” “A vet without a wedding ring in a bar mostly for vets with a girl who looks the type. Think of the message you're sending.” You look at her, shrug, and take a bite of the sandwich. It's a flank steak, the kind that almost any idiot can do right. It's also much tastier than your breakfast. The question is how to approach her about your recruitment plan [ ] Play along [ ] Ask about her service [ ] Go straight to the point [ ] Other

“So, assuming that I'm a vet and that you are as well, given your injury, where were you during the war?” She faintly smiles, remembering a painful past. “I was caught in the Leningrad pocket, but managed to escape the fall of the city with some partisans. Wound up over in the former States by '48,” she says, “Your turn.” “Wehrmacht power armor. Fought at Stalingrad and through the retreat. Escaped the purges by moving away.” She winces sympathetically, “I've got a lot of respect for you Bronestrelkovy. Always first into the breach, always the forlorn hope.

“Did you have any experience with power armor?” “Do you remember that war movie? The one where they wheeled up the anti-aircraft gun and started going to town on infantry. That was all I did.” “I remember those guys. Never shot down and airplane, but they sure turned infantry into sausage filling.” You both crack up with laughter; Natalie even starts to smack the table in her mirth, making a dull, metallic ring with her iron arm. “We actually used refurbished, unserviceable armor to help wheel the guns forward, so I suppose that I do.” You take a sip of your beer and lean in. “So, how's the occupation been treating you?” “Not too well,” she admits, “It's been difficult to find work, heaven knows I'm not giving in and joining the ISF, and nobody wants to marry me.” [ ] “I may have a job for you.” [ ] “Have you heard the rumors about a revolt?” [ ] Other

I'm afraid that those days are a bit behind me.” You lean in, “As you might know, there's been a bit of instability. I'm pretty sure that things will go south very quickly.” “Are you recruiting me for some kind of rebel unit? I'm in and ready for a fight.” You smile at the comment, but worry inside.

>>27355517Last thread, and the results of which are the first post of this thread.
>>27355529>Make humanity win it's independence without being wiped out.How? This is what I want to know. How can any attempt to push the Sindarxi off the planet, or inflict on them such high casualties as to make them reconsider keeping us as a vassal state, not cause the warhawks factions within their government get the upper hand and simply glass the major population centers across the planet?
>>27355565For one, I doubt OP is going to just screw us over since he liked the idea of us being double agents.Chances are that when we contact the rebels, they can revise their plans. I doubt the rebels are actually some selfish fucks who want all of humanity wiped out just so we can give the space elves the finger.
>>27355533How the hell will we be able to do that when there is a faction just wasting to turn our planet into a wasteland and not go through a war.>>27355533Well shit i didn't read to much in it when i cached up since i went to sleep half way through the thread that day.
>>27355597It is still incredibly stupid/risky to try out this plan when things can be done to help the cause later down the line with a larger chance of success.
>>27355597>I doubt the rebels are actually some selfish fucks who want all of humanity wiped out just so we can give the space elves the finger.Maybe not all of them. But as terrorist groups have shown throughout history, there's always a faction of hardcore believers that will gladly accept whatever costs are required so long as they can hurt their hated enemy one last time.
>>27355599>and not go through a warThat was never necessary to begin with. It wouldn't be: "Lets wipe them out because they're suddenly a fucking threat for rebelling with their hyper advanced 20th century technology and propeller planes."It's more:"Humans aren't worth taming, lets just wipe them out like we wanted to"I know it's a technicality, but yeah. We want them to come to a negotiating table or just fuck off. They can have their highway without actually controlling Earth. >>27355628We haven't actually done anything yet but try to build up our own network.

“Would you like step outside for a bit?” you ask. She gives you a scrutinizing look before shrugging and agreeing to come with you. You take out the small notebook you brought with you and write down the situation, your little scheme, and pass it to her. She reads it and her eyes widen. “Smoke?” you ask. She nods, and you pull out two cigarettes, and destroy the evidence. “That's a harebrained plan, but it has a better chance of success,” she whispers, “I have one problem, though.” “What's that?” “Is there any real benefit to going against your handler? That seems like the best possible outcome for this.” You lean against the brick wall as your finger idly traces the rough edges of a bullet hole.

>>27355654We are not dealing with jihadists, or 'bad guy extremist terrorists' though.
>>27356144No, we're dealing with desperate men who used a nuke to cover their retreat and have a kill-on-sight order out on them if they're caught, who endured some of the worst fighting at Stalingrad, who have nursed a hatred of the Sindarxi and the ISF for the past 5 years.They don't have a plan beyond going out there in patched together power armor and killing as many ISF and Sindarxi personnel, and collaborators, as they can, before they're inevitably wiped out. I suppose they may be hoping for a Tet Offensive-like situation where they may all be killed but the Sindarxi media coverage will cause the Sindarxi populace to demand that the Empire pull out of Earth like the US pulled out of Vietnam.But that depends completely on the mentality and culture of the Sindarxi; for all we know, they'll instead demand orbital bombardment of human population centers in retribution.
She leans in, pressing her hand against the wall, “So, what's your plan?” You sigh and admit, “I don't know how much I can trust her, but I'm thinking more long term, almost like the Visigoths and Rome.” “Okay, but I'm not sure how that is going to happen,” she says, “By the time there is an opportunity for that, we'll be long dead.” “I know,” you say, “But we shouldn't settle for a lesser evil if we don't have to.” She punches the wall and the iron fist makes crack in the facade. You look at her, and you see her smiling. “I'll at least want to leave something that my kids can remember. They can't ask me what I did, and I can only say that I was out sucking dick to make ends meet while the world crashed down. Count me in, you crazy kraut.” The marine walks out the door, ready to throw a few fists probably at you. Instead, he sees you and Natalie laughing the tension away.

In all seriousness, I find the writing and story (which is really good) to be conflicting with OP posting pics of brown space elves from drowtales of all things.
“Hey,” you say, “Don't worry, buddy. I wasn't doing anything bad to her.” “I can vouch,” adds Natalie. The marine calms down at this. “Alright, that's good. I was worried that there would be some commotion with y'all, no offense” he says with that distinct Texas twang. “None taken,” you say. “Y'all want to bring it back inside?” You smile at him, “Would you like a drink?” He pulls out a challenge coin. You didn't have that same tradition in the Fatherland, but you understand. You whistle appreciatively as he tosses the heavy bronze coin to you. “5th Marine Raider Armored Infantry Regiment.

I don't have that, but I was part of the 36th Armored Grenadiers Battalion in the Wehrmacht.” “Congratulations on making it out alive,” he says, as you decide that you really like his variation of the Texan accent, “I ought to give you an American welcome. The name is Kenny Logan.” The three of you go back into the Ka-Bar, and you order a round. Afterward, you go outside for a smoke where you explain the situation to Kenny Logan much like you did to Natalie. He mulls it over and replied, “I can help find a few more people, but-” “But what?” you ask. “They're supposed to be dead.” “Really,” you say, laughing, “Well so am I, but look at me now.”
That's it for tonight. I'll be back tomorrow for a few hours. In the meantime, I'll stick around to chat.Any questions, comments, criticisms, or concerns about the story or about me?
>>27357189For clarification, Yezrina's faction wants the rebellion to start and do some damage, but to control the damage so that it's not enough for the warhawks to get enough support for complete extinction of humanity, enough damage for the humans to think that they gave the Sindarxi a black eye, but have the rebellion so thoroughly put down that everyone will accept that humans completely lost this second round of the fight; is that correct?
>>27357189Yes.Space Drow or Chocolate Elves?Space Elf Femdom Y/N? Was it an option at least?Why Space Elves?Is there another way of contacting you?This is meta, but the route we're going for (Win without being wiped out or becoming vassals) actually possible?What do we know about Kurt?
>>27351972reminds me of the Iron Giant
>>27351008Wait is there a Jin Roh game or something?
>>27351972Looks like Killzone and Stay Puft had a baby.
>>27357246That is essentially correct in terms of their short term plan.>>27357260>Space Drow or Chocolate Elves?Which is more delicious? Or which is a better descriptor for our alien conquerors?>Space Elf Femdom Y/N? Was it an option at least?It can be an option. I'll leave it at that.>Why Space Elves?It is my fetish. In all seriousness, it sort of built up. I wanted an alien faction that could relate to and could be related to by humans, but was sufficiently distinct. Space elves seemed like a fun and pulpy antagonist that fit those criteria.>>27357340Thanks.>>27357381Not that I know of.>>27357440The design required a lot of space inside of the torso. But I suppose that it does, it's a description that makes me chuckle
>>27357159So dread where did u get this idea for a ww2 sans chocolate space elf mix?
>>27357246My Spidey sense is tingling that this will go horribly wrong
>>27357495This is meta, but the route we're going for (Win without being wiped out or becoming vassals) actually possible?What do we know about Kurt?
>>27357495>Or which is a better descriptor for our alien conquerors?Coco Elves have no description.Drow, kinda fits with the femdom and moral depravity.
>>27357502I'm not quite sure, but I do recall doing worldbuilding a few years back for a novel or campaign about WW2 vs aliens with power armor developed due to alien energy weapons. That was more like Muv-Luv Alternative than this setting.>>27357535>This is meta, but the route we're going for (Win without being wiped out or becoming vassals) actually possible?Yes, but it's a real tightrope.>What do we know about Kurt?We know about him from when he was Frit'z squad leader and their escape to America. After that, Fritz and Kurt didn't really keep in touch until the beginning of the quest.>>27357591More drow-ish than generic choco elves, but I'm trying write them in a way that they were smart enough not to have killed themselves off in internecine strife.
OP, I think this is the best compromise for both sides in this thread>Fritz becomes Yezrina's bitch>Humanity is not wiped out nor becomes the Drow's bitch.
Can you post the ORE crunch you made?
We need a smut writer to write a fapfic called "Breaking In Fritz"
>>27358269well there is a weekend smut thread going right now, why not request it where its appropriate and likely to get a response?
>>27358154Still working on it. Had a busy week.>>27358269Welp. It begins.
>More field manualOrganization1. The Squad: The squad is the smallest unit containing the personnel and equipment for fire and maneuver. It is composed of five men, a squad leader who carries a modified .30 cal machine gun, a gunner who carries a modified .50 cal machine gun, a grenadier who carries a 77mm “Bazooka” rocket launcher or a breech-loading 60mm mortar, and two riflemen who carry modified .30 cal machine guns2. The Platoon: The platoon consists of a headquarters team of a platoon leader and platoon sergeant and three squads.3. The Company: The company consists of a command section consisting of a company commander, company first sergeant, and company guide, three combat platoons, and a support platoon containing six suit-portable 37mm anti-tank guns.4. The Battalion: The battalion consists of a command platoon led by a Battalion Commander, Executive Officer, and Sergeant Major. It consists of a three companies and a transport company.
>>27358398>Squad>5 PeopleThat's not a squad. That's a fireteam, which did exist informally in many militaries during WW2 combat, but not official.
>>27358554I'm doing it more along the lines of a tank unit organization (5 men=1 tank, 3-5 tanks per platoon). This is because the capabilities of firepower and protection are more analogous to a light tank unit than an infantry unit.
>>27358554dude, its his setting, a squad could be 0.3 of a person for all I give a shit, this ain't based on reality...
>>27358639I really don't mind. That's why I post this bit of worldbuilding here. I enjoy arguing about and explaining why I picked certain things.
>>27358639It's his setting, so there's no need for you to defend him as if he's infallible.
