> September 4th, 2013SITUATION: http://pastebin.com/zj7F8cKdMECHANICS: http://pastebin.com/Se82xDLeCREW ROSTER: http://pastebin.com/k0X9FMgpTHE SHOP: http://pastebin.com/GqjqiWrvArchive: http://suptg.thisisnotatrueending.com/archive.html?tags=Girls%20Und%20Panzer:%20LGA%20QuestYou are Gertrude Pool, Sophomore Class President and new commander of Lafayette Girls Academy’s revived Tankery Team.AND IT’S TIME FOR SCHOOL AGAIN.FuckWelp, at least it’s hump day. As it stands, Wednesday is probably your most hated but most beloved day of the week. But enough about the Calendar, time to get ready.Shower, brush teeth, get uniform on, breakfast.You hear a knock on your door.“President! Ready for school?” It’s Nancy.> Yes> No
>>28068729>I Guess so.
>>28068729>Just mumble something unintelligible.Fuck yeah, tanks!
>>28068729>YesI'VE BEEN WAITING FOR THIS, OP.
> YesYou throw your backpack on. “Yep!”You open up the door and sure enough it’s your ever faithful staff, minus Kitten.“Morning, girls,” you greet them. The four of you start walking the way to school with a bounce to your steps. Your staff seems to be in an incredible mood today.“Hey, Boss, I called up Mr. Mishka, he’ll be upgrading the Panther to Comp. Spec. today unless you have any objections,” says Lisa.You nod. “Alright, thanks for reminding me.”You read up a little on the Panther tank last night. Fascinating design, sloped armor was nearly impenetrable to anything the Allies could throw at it short of the 17 pounder. It broke down a lot though, and that’s a bit of an understatement. Still, having one in your possession meant that you had a neat edge. You’re not sure what kind of edge, just that it’s an edge.“So, you girls have a fun time yesterday?” you ask.Nancy nods. “Oh, it was amazing! We raised so much money! At this rate, we could probably buy up the entirety of the US Armored Divisions!”Lisa says, “Always thinking big, Nancy.”Ramirez says, “Speaking of which, Pres, I been meaning to ask. That other school, Robert A. Heinlein, how much exactly do we know about them? Are they gonna be an easy fight?”> Boast> Neutral> Polite
>>28068919>NeutralGuess we should find out... unless you already did Ramirez.
>>28068919>NeutralWe don't know jackshit about them.
>>28068919> Boast"Fuck yeah they're good, they're gonna trash us! It'll be a necessary learning experience."
>>28068919neutralThanks for making my day better OP
>>28068919>It broke down a lot though, and that’s a bit of an understatement.Actually, the Panther (at least Ausf A and G) didn't break down all that much more than other tanks of the era. Of course, right now, we've got an Ausf d, which was... worse (try to make it break down in a cental location, with good fire lanes)That said:> Neutral
> Neutral“Oh, I don’t know shit about them.”Your team nods, understanding.“Don’t look at me like that, I just haven’t gotten around to calling them. Besides, there’s plenty of chances to learn how they fight.”Lisa shrugs. “I suppose, but really, how the hell are we gonna beat military kids? They probably drive their tanks to school and insist that they be called AFVs and not tanks!”Nancy says, “Well, I’m sure they’ll at least be sportsmanlike, I mean it is just a game. Right?”Ramirez says, “You should play basketball with the JROTC girls then tell them it’s all just a game.”“Regardless,” you say, “we’ll find out about how they operate later. I suppose maybe they’re really tactical and shit like that, what else would you expect from a military school?”You arrive at the campus front entrance. You check the time, 7:30.Hm, you got time before class, what do you want to do?> Keep talking with your staff> Walk around> Other
>>28069076> Walk aroundSo some scouting for disruptive elements
>>28069076>Walk AroundWho knows, there could be some crew waiting to be recruited.
>>28069076>Walk aroundTHE SUBVERSIVE ELEMENTS MUST BE IDENTIFIEDAND THEN RECRUITED.
> Walk aroundYou leave the staff to head to their own classes and decide to take a quick walk around the campus courtyard. Nothing wrong with stretching your legs a little.They certainly weren’t Betty Grable’s legs, but hell you can dream.The Courtyard was built specifically like a park, grass, gardens, and cobblestone walkways with benches and tables dotted around. At the center of this Courtyard was the statue of the Marquis de La Fayette, or more popularly, Lafayette. Lafayette was mounted on his horse, staring out towards the front of the ship.And around this statue, you can see your Freshmen crew and the Polish crew, admiring the statue.You wave, “Hey girls. What’s up?”Cathy and Janek look back at you, “Nothing much,” says Janek. “We were just looking at the statue, it’s so well-carved!”> Boast> Neutral> Polite
>>28069233Maybe we can find the dashing (if the MAN shows up, troublemaking) miscreant from our run-in with the hall-monitors. Though, they probably skip school like the high-level delinquent I imagine them to be.
>>28069277> PoliteWe don't know shit about carving.
> Polite“Well, to be blunt with you, I don’t really much about carving and stone making. However,” you say, “you girls want to know something?”The Freshmen and the Poles all nod. Good, you had their attention.“The spurs on Lafayette’s boots actually move. You spin them before something big, like a really difficult test or a date with a really cute guy, luck will be on your side.”The Freshmen all go “ooooohhhh…” The Poles as well look relatively elated.HAHA FOR USELESS INFORMATIONBut regardless, you check the time. Almost time for class. You say goodbye to your crews, reminding them that practice will be tomorrow.Time for Math class.… yeah, can’t really say that enthusiastically.But fuck it, it’s Math class, maybe something will happen. Maybe you can actually learn something!“Miss Pool.” You awake with a fright.“FIVE, THE ANSWER IS FIVE!”The class quietly snickers and giggles at the fact that you fell asleep in class. The Professor does not look amused.“Good try,” he says, “but it’s n = 6, not five.” He points to the back of the classroom towards the door. “Anyway, reporters from the Lafayette Runner are here to interview you.”> Do the interview> Fuck the Journalists
>>28069491> Do the interviewPublicity? Don't mind if I do.
>>28069491>> Do the interviewWe need money1
>>28069491>Do the interviewFuck Journalists, probably on the Fuhrer's pay roll.
>>28069491>Do the interviewBe awesome
> Do the interviewYou stand up and politely excuse yourself from the class.The Journalists are a trio of a Juniors led by a Senior. “My name’s Georgia Jones. These here are Stella Hutchins, Charlotte Taylor, and Edna Rosewater. We’re with the Lafayette Runner!”You nod. “Gertrude Pool, Sophomore Class President.”Georgia waves you off, smiling, “Oh, no need for introductions, Gertrude. My boss already filled me in some of the details about you.”“Your boss?”“Wilma Hearst, editor-in-chief. Real nice gal, you two should have coffee together or something.”“I’ll consider it.” Seniors. This smells of Fredendall.“Anyway,” continues Georgia, “We were hoping to interview you about the recent revival of the Tankery program. Would that be okay with you?”> Accept> Refuse> other
>>28069655>> AcceptThat is why we went with them after all. Though, it we smell Fredendall all over this just don't answer questions. If they write stuff anyway we can get them for libel.
>>28069655> otherOn the condition that you get to see, and veto, the article before it goes to print.
>>28069655>AcceptBut be very weary of what they ask and how to respond backPrepare phone to record conversation covertly
>>28069655>AcceptWe need to look as good as we can, and Fredendall will have less to work with if more of the students are on our side.
> Accept“Sure, I don’t see why not.” You do see why not, but hell, why not.Georgia beams, “Excellent!” She gestures for Edna and Stella to start writing things down, while Charlotte prepares a camera.“Alright, Gertrude Pool is the Sophomore Class President, who, seemingly out of nowhere, has suddenly revived Lafayette Girls Academy’s Tankery program. First abolished to save money in ’89, Gertrude has brought it back and will be participating the ITL World Tournament“So, Gertrude. Why the sudden revival? Surely there must be some reason to revive the Tankery Program given how expensive a hobby it is.”> Boast> Neutral> Polite> “Time to shut you up!”
>>28069826> NeutralLet's not get hasty, her disingenuous assertions be damned.
>>28069826> Polite"You know, I have a good friend that loves tanks, and I didn't really have any clubs I wanted to join, so I thought 'what the heck' and decided to try and restart the Tankery Program for her. I didn't tell her at first, so it came as a surprise! I'm really lucky she liked it in the end. Though honestly, I hadn't expected the Principal to agree, so I was just as shocked myself! *polite laugh* No, but really, that's all there is to it I'm afraid. Not a very exciting story, but I hope to make up for it with exciting matches! We've been very successful in our revival attempt so far, and things are only looking up!"That's how we PR spin - nothing we can get caught on I don't think (unless they find out about the saving the school thing, in which case who cares already).
>>28069826>BoastIf we win the program will fund itself. Besides, we seem to have other money issues, like the senior class president taking my entire year's budget to fund the prom.
>>28069826> PoliteAlways be polite to journalists. Those snakes will fuck you over as soon as they can.
> Polite“Well, I started the Tankery Program up because a couple of friends of mine, my staff in fact, suggested I do. Tankery in it’s most basic form is an all-women sport that isn’t just about buying expensive tanks or getting the most wins, it’s about learning to blossom and grow as a woman. As for expenses, we are raising the money ourselves, with no money to be loaned from the School.”Georgia nods, pensive. Stella and Edna chalk that down immediately.“Speaking of expenses, some believe that you are putting the Tankery Program above the needs of your class. You’d rather spend the money for Tankery rather than save it for say, prom, or on other incentives that your class may miss out on that other classes may not. What do you say to that?”> “I care about our class too.”> “Tankery is most important at the moment.”> Other> “Time to shut you up!”
>>28069990>“I care about our class too.”If you want to talk about my class' funding, you could always ask Senior class president Fredendall why my entire year's funding was diverted to her class' prom.
>>28069990>“I care about our class too.”"As I said: Tankery is funding itself. No funds are embezzled. If there are funds for the class, they stay in the class. Easy as that."
>>28069990> “I care about our class too.”Again, the tankery club is raising the fund themselves with no additional help from the school
>>28069990> “I care about our class too.”Someone tell me why we should put fucking prom over Tankery? Because even without the school about to shut down it seems ridiculous.
>>28069990>"The Sophomore class fund and the Tankery club account do not overlap. No money is being taken from one to fund the other. All money raised by Tankery was from our very successful club fair showing yesterday.It's funny you mention the Sophomore funds, though, because going into this school year we had a whole five thousand ready! But the strangest thing happened, your Senior president, Fredendall, ended up embezzling our entire account for the SENIOR class prom. The strangest things."
>>28070080It was 50,000
>>28069990>I assure you, I care for the class as much as the tanks - but there are many who collect money for the class, while I'm the one in charge of the, much smaller, Tankery Program. If I did not focus on collection money for that, it would be unfair, would it not?
>>28070116>You sigh, rubbing your forehead with some disbelief. Zero funds whatsoever down from 5,000 dollars. “Yeah, yeah. I’ll see what I can do about helping you.”http://suptg.thisisnotatrueending.com/archive/27812454/#p27813878
> “I care about our class too.”“I am aware that maybe I am putting Tankery first above my own class. However, the fact is that my Class comes first, and like I said, all money raised by Tankery is raised by us. In a way, we aren’t really raising money for Tankery, we’re raising money for the Class as a whole.”“Of course, you are the Sophomore Class President,” says Georgia. You cross your arms, waiting patiently for the next question. Georgia flips a page in her note pad.“Now, the Senior Class President and some faculty members are worried that Tankery is an unsafe sport, and how it can it not be? You are fighting tanks against each other. What would you say to them if they were to ask, ‘What if someone gets hurt?’”> “Injuries may occur.”> “No one gets hurt on my watch.”> Other> “Time to shut you up!”
>>28070168>> “No one gets hurt on my watch.”I don't see why anyone would get hurt, there's a bunch of safety measures to prevent that.
>>28070168> “Injuries may occur.”"Of you don't know what you are doing. That's why we've hired an instructor."
>>28070168>“No one gets hurt on my watch.”This is a well-regulated international sport with a long safety record. If pacifists like the Japanese are fine with it why is it a big deal?Why are you ignoring the Fredendall theft, Schteel?
>>28070168>OtherExplain the safety features that are mandatory on the tanks and the rounds used. >‘What if someone gets hurt?’Any sport you can ask the same question, concussions are killer doesn't matter if you receive them in Soccer, Field Hockey, or Tankery.
>>28070168>> OtherJust like any other professional sport the risk of injury is always there however just like all the other professional sports there are preemptive measure to ensure the risk of injury is to a minimal,
>>28070233He doesn't allow us to fix the problem.
>>28070168> "Tankery is quite a safe sport - after all, it's too popular to be all that dangerous, as well as enough so to foster plenty of innovation in safety. Of course, like in any other physical sport, there is some risk of injury - but it is not large enough to be a serious worry, in my opinion."
>>28070205>>28070209>>28070246> “Injuries may occur.”> “No one gets hurt on my watch.”> Other“To be frank, Fredendall does kind of bother us about a lot of a stuff, safety, training, FUNDING, but that’s not really important right now. Contrary to popular belief, Tankery is quite safe, there are risks, but I will make absolute sure that no one gets hurt. Every tank is fitted with mandatory judging and safety equipment to make sure the crew inside is not hurt, and we have hired a professional instructor to not just teach us how to fight, but also how to be safe in the competition.”Georgia nods. “An interesting answer.” Georgia flips through another page in her notepad. “Now, the Tankery Program is about to run headlong into the ITL World Tournament which is coming up next month. Is it really wise to run headlong into the competition with no formal experience?”> “We don’t care, we just want to have fun.”> “We will train around the clock for the Tournament.”> Other> “Time to shut you up!”
>>28070330> “We will train around the clock for the Tournament.”We're no slackers.
>>28070330> “We will train around the clock for the Tournament. I think it will be a good experience for our members, regardless of how things go!"
>>28070330>Other"It's the American thing to do and if you look to history, we usually win."
>>28070330>“We will train around the clock for the Tournament.”Whether Fredendall and her cronies like it or not.
>>28070330>Other"We are training as much as possible while keeping up with our other responsibilities. Heading into the World Tournament is a way to measure our abilities."
>>28070330This >>28070411 , saying training around the clock brings up "Oh what about School work?"
> “We will train around the clock for the Tournament.”“We’re gonna be training our butts off for this tournament, that’s no exaggeration. Of course, yes, we might be inexperienced, but that doesn’t mean we won’t give it our all. We’re all enthusiastic, and we’re all ready for what comes in the Tankery Program.”Edna and Stella glance at each other, curiously, then continue writing things down.“Lastly, what are your personal motivations for the Tankery Program? Is it to win money for the school? To win money for your class? Or perhaps it’s just for you and your friends own personal enjoyment?”> “Yes.”> “We’re doing to win money for our school and class, nothing more.”> Other> “Time to shut you up!”
>>28070482>“We’re doing to win money for our school and class, nothing more.”Enjoyment second to School Duty.
>>28070482>“Yes.”"I love this school and will do whatever I can to help it, no matter how much Fredendall interferes with that."
>>28070482"To master the art of Tankery, and eventually take home victory for Lafayette Girls Academy, while having as much fun as possible! Goals and aspirations are necessary, but in the end, it's pointless if we don't enjoy it, don't you think?"
> “Yes.”“We’re there to win it for school and for class. We also intend on having as much fun as possible while doing it, what would be the point of doing Tankery if we can’t enjoy it?”Georgia nods. “Satisfactory answer, Gertrude.” She flips her notepad shut and gestures for her crew to pack up. “Thank you for your time, I hope we aren’t wasting it.”“It’s math, what do you think?”The both of you giggle.“Anyway,” she says, “again, thanks for your time. Expect the interview to be in the school newspaper next week or so.” She and her crew walk off, waving as they leaves. “See you later!”You sigh with relief. Thank god that’s over. Time to return to math!ALARMOr not, time to go to English.[1/2]
>>28070684Now to wait for the inevitable slandering article in the newspaper.
>>28070684[2/2]…“… and so far your group projects, it’ll be a general studies. I honestly don’t care what, that you study something, and give a five minute long presentation on it. Now go ahead and pick your partners, then report it to me.”FUCK GROUP PROJECTS.Oh well. You look around your English class. A relative mix of Freshmen, Sophomores, Juniors, and Seniors. Nobody you recognize though, and unfortunately it seems like everyone’s already finding their partners.Damn, this was so much simpler in Middle School when you can just rely on Kitten to get everything done.What do you do?> Find a partner.> Wait for a partner to come to you.> Other
>>28070704>Find a partner.
>>28070704>Find a partner.Then we can coerce them into joining our Tankery squad.
>>28070704> Find a partner.
>>28070704> Find a partner.Sitting around will just get us saddled with the girl nobody likes.
>>28070704> Find a partner.Look for someone who can't find one on their own! We must uphold the class rep. spirit!
>>28070727We ARE that girl.
>>28070771How'd you get that idea?
>>28070771We're pretty popular I think. Which is why we should take one for the team and pair with the girl no-one likes.
>>28070791We haven't made any friends OR found a partner yet.
> Find a partner.“Sorry, I’ve already got a partner.”“We’re already working together, sorry.”“We’re a group, sorry.”“We’re dating.”Goddamn it.You spot a Junior, who appears to be in the same situation you are.JACKPOT.You quickly run up to her before some freshie can claim her. “Hey, let’s work together!”The Junior is agreeable. “Okay! What’s your name?”“Gertrude Pool, you?’“Michelle DeWitt. Nice to meet you! Glad to be working together!”Awesome. The two of you shake hands and immediately report to the English Professor. He quickly writes the both of you down as partners and moves on. You both decide to get together at a desk and hash out the details.“So…” Michelle begins. “I’m honestly kinda strapped for ideas. You got any idea what we should do?”> Tanks> Whatever Michelle wants.> Other
>>28070839>TanksFUCK YEAH, TANKS
>>28070839>Whatever Michelle wantsWe're allowed to be normal sometimes.
>>28070839> Whatever Michelle wants.Let's have fun!
>>28070839> Tanks>Unless if you have any better suggestions
> Tanks“Well… we could talk tanks.”Michelle looks at you as if you’re crazy. “Tanks?”You nod. “Yeah, I’m actually the Tankery Team Commander you know, and well I honestly don’t know too much about tanks. This would be a great chance to do some studying on tanks, or a particular tank, or even Tankery as a whole.”Michelle leans back in her chair, looking a bit sullen. “Eh… can we do something not involving tanks? Like… gardening or some shit?”> NO, FUKKEN TANKS> Fine, gardening, that’s as girly as tanks I guess.> Why not?> Other
>>28070993> Why not?

>>28071079>Hey, every civilization ever used combat drugs at some point!America isn't a civilization.
> Why not?“Why not? Tankery’s a womanly thing. Maybe we can argue the merits of allowing guys to do Tankery.”…Both of you bust out laughing.“Ahaha!” Michelle covers her mouth, tears forming at the edge of her eyes. “Okay, okay! That’s actually pretty funny!”“I know right!?” You lean on the desk, scratching your chin. “But seriously, why not tanks? Is there something the matter with it? Something personal?”Michelle calms down a bit to shrug. “It’s something personal.”You nod. “Alright. Fine, let’s do some fucking gardening then I suppose.”Michelle nods back. “Yeah, you know how to garden?”“… no?”…“We’re not good at this,” says Michelle.“Not at all.” You scratch your chin. “I suppose we can just trawl Wikipedia then for info?”“Sure, want to head to my place after school? Get everything sorted out in one day?”> Sure, available> Can’t, busy> Other

> Head straight to the CafeteriaHAHA TIME FOR MEALSYou quickly run to the cafeteria, and find yourself in the front of the now growing line. With that, you’re walking out with one of them soft-shell tacos, a banana, and the usual carton of milk. Part of a healthy balanced lunch.Now that you think about it, Anna said she’d visit Kitten during lunch time. Of course, that can’t possibly go wrong. Can it?Probably can. You make a mental note to visit during your lunch at some other point too.Your staff waves you over to a table and you sit next to Nancy, with Lisa and Ramirez sitting next to you.“Hey President,” Nancy says, “How was your day?”> Boast> Neutral> Polite

Actually, I won’t be going home with you girls today, I gotta get a project done with one of my English classmates?”Lisa nods. “No prob. What are you guys doing your project on?”“Gardening.”Ramirez says, “Sounds boring.”You say, “We actually don’t know shit about gardening, but we figure since it’s a really open ended project, we can just trawl Wikipedia and bring in a bouquet or something.”Nancy asks, “Oh yeah, tomorrow’s our first practice.

This is Army stuff.”Ramirez says, “I don’t think there’s much of a difference.”Lunch goes by relatively uneventfully. Thankfully the meal is impressive enough to satisfy your hunger.

> VolleyballHAHA TIME TO PICK OUT WHICH GIRLS HAVEN’T WORN BRAS TODAY- I MEAN VOLLEYBALLOf course, you don’t actually know how to play Volleyball, but damn it that doesn’t mean you can’t try. Your team of five immediately elect you as the leader, and with that comes the responsibility of leading your team to victory.You decide to do the only thing you’re really capable of doing, bouncing the ball up into the air and hoping someone else knows enough physics to get it back over the net. Meanwhile, you shout at others to keep the ball the air. Fortunately, you’ve been saddled with decently competent players.The usual situation is that the teams are so stacked in terms of skill that terrorists are planning to ram planes into them.Finally, with the last whistle, it’s over. You’ve barely ecked out a win. You’re fucking exhausted though and you’re covered in sweat.You check the time. Hm, enough time for a shower.Then again, do you really want to shower now?> Shower and change> Change and head to your next class.> Other
>>28071805> Shower and changeWe're not fucking disgusting.
Rolled 37>>28071805>> Shower and change

>>28071805> Shower and changeSweaty classes? No, thank you.
>>28071805>Shower and changeHopefully no lewd stuff happens, and maybe we can get a call to Kitten on the way.
>>28071774Once we win there shall be skiing competitions held on mountains of cocaine. >>28071805>Of course, you don’t actually know how to play Volleyball,Oh for FUCK's sake, are we really suck at a lot of things... At least we're decently strong, I guess.>> Shower and changeMight as well.
>>28071874You can't be great at everything.A lot of people aren't great at anything.
>>28071696>“Oh, that’s just Marines, Lisa. This is Army stuff.”>Ramirez says, “I don’t think there’s much of a difference.”Them's fightin' words.
> Shower and changeMeh, fuck it, showers are always good after a rousing game of something that you don’t know how to play.The lockerroom is abuzz with activity from girls undressing and dressing, shooting the shit about the latest topics, and doing cooldown exercises. Contrary to popular belief, girls do not molest each other in the lockerrooms because it’s fun.Okay, they don’t molest each other MUCH but that’s beside the point.You swiftly toss your gym clothes and underwear to a bench as you step underneath a showerhead. Turning the knob, you’re greeted by refreshing hot water. Awww yiss.“Hey, you’re Pool right?”You look over to see a girl in the shower next to you. Judging from her proportions, you can probably guess she’s a Junior. “Gertrude Pool?”You nod. “Yeah, that’s me.”She offers her hand, smiling. “Joanna Bolter. You played against me that last match, it was really close.”> Boast> Neutral> Polite
>>28071957Sure, but not even played it? What kind of gym classes has Trude been going to before?
>>28071987>BoastWe really didn't know how to play Volleyball but we still wrecked her shit either way.
>>28071987>PoliteTell her she played great then slap her ass.
>>28071987> PoliteSo did you, random girl.
>>28071987>> PoliteDidn't we hear that surname somewhere before?

>>28072057Right, that's her!Gotta give her some proper street respect for flipping off the pigs.
>>28072034>>28072057Yeah, she was on the bike that got the SS off our ass after we were rolling in the Souma.
>>28071748>SHOW ME YOUR MOE FACE!!YOU THINK THAT'S MOE, MAGGOT?BLUSH HARDER>>28071987>PoliteNo sense in being a dick (or rather, cunt) to someone who we could potentially recruit

> Polite“Nice to meet you.” You shake her hand. Wait, that name, “Didn’t you speed past me a couple of days ago?”Joanna scratches her chin, pensive. “Don’t recall, I do a lot of work that involves going places.”“I was the one with the tank.”She snaps her finger. “Oh yeah! The S35, you guys got pulled over and I shouted Fuck you pigs and then they got after me, caught me, and put me in the brig for the day.”“Ouch.”She shrugs. “It’s not so bad, Law Enforcement Studies only has the authority to give tickets and put students in the brig for one day. It’s the actual police you have to be careful of.”You cross your arms, partially because you’re a bit skeptical and partially because you’re slightly jealous of her bust size. “Well, thanks at least. We managed to get out of getting a ticket from them.”She nods, smiling, “Don’t mention it. Anyway, you did good out there.” She turns her shower off. Awww. “I gotta head to class.”Suddenly, you feel a heavy smack on your ass.Son of a bitch, did she just spank you?You look at her as she walks off, goddamn it you can see the smug smile on her face from the back of her head.Goddamn it, you’re blushing STOP THAT[1/2]
>>28072253[2/2]ALARMWhoop, time for Theatre class.Nope, still can’t get enthusiastic for Theatre class.You decide it best to just sleep through Theatre. All you really ever do is that fucking improve game Party quirks and the Professor really doesn’t give a shit either way along as you show up and help out with the latest productions.This year’s Fall play of course happened to be Red Dawn: The Musical.Yeah, you’re not sure how they made a musical of it, but they did. You prefer the original movie anyway.French class goes by relatively quickly as well, mostly stuff about proper conjugation of the forms aller, être, and parler. Nothing too difficult. You can at least say, Je m’appelle Gertrude Pool, je suis soixante ans.At least you think soixante means 16.But finally, school’s over, and you meet Michelle out by the Courtyard.“Hey, Gertrude. How was your day?”> Boast> Neutral> Polite
>>28072253Knew she'd be dashing.Also, the glorified hall monitors can put us in fucking jail? A day or no, that's stupid. Fucking cops.
>>28072279>PoliteWe need to recruit her into our team.
>>28072279> PolitePretty good I'd say.
>>28072279> BoastAlso, Bolter is such a lesbo. Explains why she likes to hang out with the Law Enforcement Studies, aka, LES.
>>28072279>> PoliteOther then being partially molested and questioning my sexuality for the moment. I'm fine.
>>28072309hahaha, but why's O'Hara in it then? She seemed to full of anger and rage to have a sexual orientation.
>>28072279>PoliteAlso, it would be "Je m'appelle Gertrude Pool, j'ai sieze ans." "Soixante" is sixty, and "je suis soixante ans" would mean "I am sixty years."
> Polite“Oh, things went fine. Got stuff done, made a new friend I suppose.” You shudder a bit. “But yeah, how about yours?”“Eh, day went by rather swimmingly I suppose,” she says.The two of you start walking to Michelle’s dorm together. The Junior dorms were a bit more upscale than the Sophomore’s, and from what you saw of Betty’s room, they were definitely a lot bigger.Michelle opens up her dorm room. “Make yourself at home, she says. I’ll put dinner on.”You step, and immediately you see that the room is put together and neat, but also large enough to accommodate a couch, a coffee table, a TV, the bed, the kitchen, just about everything in your dorm but bigger.You suddenly can’t wait until you’re a Junior.With that, you hop onto the couch and stretch yourself out like a cat. Time to relax.Or, you could be a total creeper and start exploring.> Relax> Explore> Other
>>28072456> ExploreI'm sorry Trude. I'm naturally curious, it's in my veins. My grandmother was a cat, and also is dead, you can guess why.

> ExploreFuck relaxing, time to take a look around.You get up off the couch and look the dorm. Nothing too exciting, just regular stuff. Strange, Michelle doesn’t appear to be a fan of anything in particular. You look at her bed and the bedstand, yep, nothing too out of the ordinary. Just a couple of pictures of family, friends, tanks, a lamp-Hold on.You look closer at one particular framed picture.It’s looks a fairly old photo, you can see creases and folds on it, but it’s definite, that’s a fucking Tiger I. On it, a younger probably middle school aged, Michelle DeWitt clad in a school uniform smiling warmly. The others you can actually recognize, that Kate Knispel girl in the Commander’s hatch, Joanna Bolter in the Driver’s hatch, Wendy Kniep sitting on top of the turret along with Michelle. There’s one other girl you don’t recognize in the radio operator’s hatch, but so far, these are all girls who attend the school.So that must mean Michelle does have experience-“Gertrude?”You nearly jump and look to see Michelle. She’s standing over you with some instant dinner ready, looking a bit skeptical of you.“Eh…” you say. Fuck, what do you say.> “I was just looking.”> “So, you did Tankery huh?”> Leave it.> Other

> “I was just looking.”“I was just looking,” you say.“Just looking?”“Just looking,” you stand up, dusting yourself off. Michelle doesn’t look that amused, but she hands you your insta-dinner regardless. You quickly sit down on the couch and pull out your laptop, while Michelle sits on her bed with her own laptop.TIME TO TRAWL WIKIPEDIA.“So, got any ideas?” you ask.Michelle looks up. “Hm, well. I was thinking we could study the meaning of a certain flower or something.”You nod, not bad. “That could work.” You quickly start searching for the language of flowers.Still though, you can’t get it out of your head. Michelle knows tanks. Hell, she probably knows tanks better than Kitten does, and that’s really saying something.Maybe…> RECRUITMENT OPPORTUNITY> Y/N?
>>28072860>> Y/N?NNOPE NOPE NOPE, full shadowruns.
>>28072860I hate myself right now, but N. Just ask why she doesn't like tanks anymore.

>>28072860>N...ot yet. We can get friendlier now, then plunder Bolter for information on her to know what our best course of action should be. Hopefully.
>>28072860>NDon't mention it at all.
>>28072860From the moment we asked her about tanks, she instantly noped.I'm gonna have to say no for this one. Perhaps once we're done with this gardening project.
>>28072860>Nbut do ask something about that photo
>>28072884Hell, at least with Bolter we could always honeypot her.
>>28072860>YFor the dissenting vote.
> NNah, best not to mention it.You continue studying for the Language of Flowers, or floriography.Michelle says, “So have you found anything?”You take a bite of your insta-dinner. “Nah. You?”“Nah.”Wow, studying the wide varying, ancient art of the language of flowers is difficult. You’re not entirely sure why it’s difficult, this seemed easier in your head. Maybe you should just choose a flower and move on.Michelle scratches her head, pensive. “What do you think, Gertrude?” She sits down next to you on the couch. “Roses are symbolic of love, Daffodils are common associated with Narcissus, and Lilys… I don’t know about the Lily actually, but it’s a nice flower. Which do you think we should study?”> Rose> Daffodil> Lily> Other

Thankfully, it doesn’t seem like Michelle is being outwardly cold to you, she even appeared relatively friendly.You pack your stuff up, “Welp, it’s about time for me to head home.”Michelle nods, “Alright, take care of yourself.You head for the door.Wait.Do you really want to head for the door?On the hand, Michelle knows tanks.

>>28073321We can at least ask about the picture and see how she reacts.

>>28073625Considering they used to pilot a Tiger, a Tiger II?Or the superheavy, I'm kind of eager to see what kind of carnage they could wreck with that.
>>28073658Not as impressive as a late war, medium tank I can guarantee you that. Superheavies have no place on a battlefield. They're museum pieces and jungle gyms.

I mean, really, everything’s just crashing down on top of me at this point! The school shutting down, the tanks, I’m fully comprehending the situation! And it’s not good at all! It’s like in that story book where Lex Luthor took 40 cakes! THAT WAS AS MANY AS 4 TENS! AND THAT’S TERRIBLE!”> Pathos> Ethos> Logos
>>28074427>LogosShe seems the type to respond to reason.
>>28074462Logic is not the right tool to calm down a scared girl. I mean if she was scared of flying in an airliner, it might work, but in this case, we dont have any comforting data to present,
> Pathos“Nancy, calm down. First off, that was just a story with a very crappy way of describing stuff. Secondly, we’ve got this handled. We’re all friends right?”“… right?”“And friendship is equivalent to teamwork. Therefore, we can make this work because we’re friends, and the teamwork we’ll put will be enough to make us damn near invincible. Now, yeah, our tanks might be crap at the moment, but you should stop worrying. Think on the now, I’ll think about the future, okay?”“Okay. Sorry for panicking.”“Don’t worry about it, Nancy. Lesser women probably would’ve jumped ship, you know?”“Of course. Anyway, how did it go with your project? Make a new friend?”> Boast> Neutral> Polite
>>28074527>BoastOur partner apparently is an Ace tanker.
>>28074527>NeutralNot yet.BUT SOON.
>>28074527>> NeutralShe's an ace tanker Nancy, we need her and her old crew badly. But they're broken up...
>>28074527> PoliteAnd ask Nancy about gardening and flower meanings and stuff. Our group is gonna need the help.It seems to be more her cup of tea and it'll probably keep her mind off stuff that'll cause her panic.
> Neutral“Well, Nancy, I did make a new friend, of sorts. She happens to be an Ace gunner, formerly practicing Tankery.”“Oh goody! She gonna help us!?”“I said formerly.”“Oh.”“Anyway, she and her crew actually attend school here. Seems like they’re all broken up though, don’t know what it is, and I’m afraid if I try to find out I might lock them out entirely.”“Well, time heals all wounds you know? Perhaps you should give it a bit of time, then maybe approach one of them, I’m sure they’d all be happy to be reunited.”“Yeah, I guess so.”“Anyway, just calling to say hi, glad you’re doing well.”“Thanks, Nancy. See you in the morning.”“See ya.”> Head straight to Kitten’s place.> Call someone else.> Other
>>28074673> Head straight to Kitten’s place.
>>28074673> Head straight to Kitten’s place.Sorry Ramirez, Lisa.
>>28074673>> Head straight to Kitten’s place.I want to cuddle with our Kitten while sharing popcorn.
>>28074673>Head straight to Kitten’s place.
>>28074673> Head straight to Kitten’s place.Let's see the Tank e-bay
>>28074732It's in the shop pastebin.
>>28074753I know, but let's buy something.
>>28074771Still think we should fix up the Church first.
>>28074795Seconding this. Let's fix up the stuff we have first
>>28074795I'd prefer the SU-122 to be honest, because we still don't know if that fucking Churchill is worth it.
> Head straight to Kitten’s place.You arrive at Kitten’s dorm and knock on her door. “It’s open!” she says. You head inside, and sure enough the place is clean as a whistle. You decide to take your shoes off, who knows what you’ve been walking around in all day.“Hey, Kitten,” you say. Kitten is already fixing up a projector of some sort to project the movie onto the wall, clad in her pajamas. “Oooh, going high tech I see. Do I need some 3D glasses?”Kitten in her most enthusiastic tone of voice says, “Ha ha. Very funny. Hope you don’t mind bad audio.”“Nah, I’m good.” You throw off your blazer and then get to work on unhooking your bra. “So what movie are we watching?”“Rocketeer.”“Groovy.”Click. THERE IT IS SWEET RELIEF. You slip your bra out of your shirt and sigh in relief. You look over and see Kitten, looking at you as if you were nuts.“Did you just take off your bra?”You nod. “Haven’t you?”Kitten looks as if she’s about to say something, then thinks on it. “Okay, yeah, good point. One minute.” She quickly runs into her bathroom.> Anything you want to do before comes out?
>>28074864We can give it the the littlejohn adapter.
>>28074906>RocketeerGood (bad) taste. Let's do this.
>>28074771Let's recover the last lost tank first before deciding any purchases.Then we can decide if the last few vintages we have are either worth fixing into CompSpec, or better off being sold/traded for something better/more maintenance friendly.>>28074906> Anything you want to do before comes out?Order take out? Set up snacks and drinks, perhaps?
>>28074906Should we call Misha and tell em to bring the stuart to comp spec?
>>28074922This.2pdr with LJA is a fucking tank-eating rapid fire machine gun.
>>28074906Make sure the biggest possible pile of pillows, quilts and what-have-you is assembled for maximum comfort.
>>28074906German, I looked at the upgrades, what happen to the M3?
>>28074992Became unavailable.(but honestly, why would you backgrade the M5 into an M3)
>>28074922Still slow as fuck and prone to breakdown.The Crusader III or SU-122 seem like better bets to me.
>>28075003Kind of wish we started with the M3 and upgraded it into an m5 but that's just me
>>28075006SU-122 is good if we get HEAT shells.Otherwise we're better off with the crusader.The LJA is only 2k and really makes the Churchill suck less
>>28075039We got a free upgrade to an M5, stop bitching about it.
>>28075053Calm down, I was just wondering. Sorry. Can we convert the begrepanzer or do we have to wait for he super heavy?
>>28075046Comp spec Churchill is 13,000 dollars, not including the LJA. We could buy a whole goddamn tank for that. Such as the Crusader or SU-122, and HEAT shells were introduced in 1943, so it's legal. I don't see why we can't get HEAT for the SU-122.
>>28075108Who said anything about comp spec?
>>28075108Not to mention a big gun ambusher is a hell of a tool to have in our kit.
>>28075108What about our bt-42 should we convert it into a light tank ?
>>28075118These twits>>28074795>>28074835I'm not opposed to a LJA, it's a pretty low hanging fruit. But spending THAT MUCH money on what's essentially a slow, breakdown prone deathtrap is a terrible idea.
>>28075138The SU-122 would be SCARY in urban environments.
>>28075151You need to view the churchill as a stationary gun turret. It's got good enough armor to do it. It's simply area denial to the enemy.
>>28075151Can we convert it into a Churchhill 2 then or something?Or bring the Stuart to comp-.spec
>>28074922>>28074954>>28075046“Hey, Mr. Mishka,” you decided to give Mr. Mishka a call for some parts. “Do you mind if we order this thing called a Littlejohn Adaptor?”“Sure thing! I can have it to you now if you’d like!”“Oh, just deliver it Lisa, I’m sure she’ll know what to do with it.”“Righto, righto. Also, the strangest thing, you know a Griselda?”“Yeah, that’s my sister, why?”“She called earlier, asking for a 47mm high velocity gun. Told her the price, she hung up.”“… yeah, that’s my sister.”“Always like that?”“Eh, she’s nice when you get to know her.”“That’s damning with faint praise.”“Hey, I lived with her, how do you think I feel?”“Fair point. If there’s nothing else?”“Nah, we’re good.”You hang up.> PART ACQUIRED> LITTLEJOHN ADAPTOR> - 2,000 DOLLARSKitten comes out, sighing in relief. “Oh man, that feels GREAT.”“Come on, let’s get some pillows together.”The two of you quickly start preparing for your little movie night. Pillows and blankets are thrown together on the bed. Chips are thrown into a bowl. The lights are turned off. Good atmosphere for a nice little movie with friends.Suddenly occurs to you that you should probably start socializing with the other crews more.You lie next to Kitten on the bed. “Ready?” she asks you.“Ready.”She clicks the remote.http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=mNZCK5jw69Y> END DAY
>>28075208It sure as hell doesn't need comp spec for that, considering its main bonus is increasing mechanical reliability. Even if we really needed comp spec (which I am not even remotely convinced about), I'd prefer to buy the new tanks first before they go off the shop.
That's where we'll end it for tonight folks. Will continue tomorrow at the same time 3 PM EST.https://twitter.com/AdBa19As always, stay tuned.
>>28075233Truly, a great ending to a good day. Compared with yesterday it didn't earn great, but it made a good effort.Thanks for running!
>>28075233It's like I'm really watching the movie, OP.Thanks for today.
>>28075225It's not on the shop, I'd think of it a lot less badly if we could upgrade it to later marks. As it is, buying the new tanks already at comp spec is far more cost-effective, especially since they have a time limit before someone else buys them.
>>28075259But it's vintage so won't it break down more?
>>28075274Awesome as always, boss. Thanks for running.
>>28075387It costs thirteen THOUSAND goddamn dollars to make it break down less, like I said, cost of a new, comp spec tank. Not a chance I'm willing to spend that much to make it break down marginally less. That one anon's suggestion of a turret sounds a lot better to me.
With the current line-up, the Churchill will be straggling behind the rest of the team, and it'll be easy pickings then.Otherwise, the rest will have to keep pace with it, which will negate team mobility.>>28075233> PART ACQUIRED> LITTLEJOHN ADAPTOR... I guess we're going for it.BTW, German, when will the League install the safety equipment? 3 or 4 days from now?We don't want the instructor to be arriving before them, and then throwing the club into an impromptu practice match.I guess that'll limit practice to driving and maneuvers, and shooting down range?
>>28075436But we upgraded the Panther and that also broke down a lot?Not saying we should bring it to comp.spec now but maybe later
>>28075436>... I guess we're going for it.It could just be a backup tank or even bait, 2000 dollars isn't that much of an investment. Thank God we didn't upgrade it like some idiots were suggesting.
>>28075507ya but the panther is one of are best tanks
>>28075507The Panther is one of the best tanks of the war, and has the Ausf A upgrade to make it less breakdown prone. The Churchill is FAR less impressive than a freaking Panther.Also, maybe if we win the lottery or something. I'm honestly just tempted to sell the bloody thing right now.
>>28075547>>28075556Again, I think we should bring it up to comp.spec if we can spare the cash (which is not right now) maybe later.and we can't sell it we're in desperate need of tanks right now.
>>28075625we still have a superheavy to find and to be fair it is a pretty shit tank for tank on tank combat
>>28075625Again, I doubt it'll ever be worth the money.Sure we can sell it, we don't have money for both the SU-122 and the Crusader III, wheras I think we could squeeze enough money from the Churchill to buy them. The Churchill's long term viability is utterly crippled by the fact that we can't upgrade it into later marks.
>>28075659Isn't that because we lack the money/not available right now.I say we wait and see what happens for now.
>>28075711Considering the hilariously expensive Sherman upgrades, no. Saying that we can't see the upgrades because don't have any money is probably one of the most retarded arguments I've ever heard. No business isn't going to hide an option from us because we currently don't have the money right now.
>>28075755Okay, then it's the latter argument.
>>28075755Schteel specifically said we couldn't see them because we didn't have enough money/they would be available when we did. It's not the business.
>>28075800Yeah, and I'd prefer to sell our tank (which as >>28075494 said earlier, doesn't even fit our tactical requirements) for something that isn't actually crap.We could have a decent tank now for the cost of a shit tank or this hypothetical later mark you seem to be suggesting in God knows how long, even if its possible.Forgive me if I seem skeptical of the validity of your arguments.
>>28075887It will take awhile for the tank we bought to be delivered anyway. I rather not sell our tank when we're in desperate need for them especially considering all of our crews don't know how to use a tank yet. I'm more skeptical of the Bt-42 then anything
>>28075941I'm not exactly desperate for a tank that contributes barely anything to our team.And we're a looooong way away from our first match.
>>28075941The BT-42 is unique, we should at least give it a try. Also anons, who else is watching Rocketeer with Kitten? I'm on part 4.
>>28076005If we can't use the Churchill, we can't use the BT-42.
>>28075975Well I'll be damned.Well it isn't like we're going to be even considering going up a mark for the prices we're likely to find there anyway.
>>28075973I at least want to wait until we see some upgrades for the Churchill before considering to sell it.We're in no rush here.
>>28076005The BT-42 was unique for a reason.And not in a good way.
>>28076019So if'we're following the standard of what we need on our tanks wouldn't converting them to the bt-7a a better option
>>28076037We are in a rush, considering we need tanks that aren't shit.Upgrades for the Churchill aren't even remotely in our price range, or at least in a price range that'll be worth it.
So I know you're all going to shout at me but shut up for a second, why the fuck have we not bought the Valiant for 100 FUCKING DOLLARS yet? I mean its a piece of shit, but its comp spec and 100 fucking dollars, its got a halfway decent gun and decent armor, and being comp spec would solve most of the crew injuring issuesseriously, its a whole comp spec ready tank for 100 fucking dollars, buy the fucking thing already
>>28076088If that's the case I rather our teams be well trained in mediocre then wait for better tanks which will lessen their training time.
>>28076121We're all here arguing about what tanks we should have for a reason. Whether or not a slow moving infantry tank with a 2pdr would be a good tank, or a Finnish BT-7 with a huge howitzer would be useful. We should wait until tomorrow and see what Schteel throws at us.
>>28076121also, GS is you're still around can we get an updated total of what money we have, also might want to update the panther to comp spec in the pastebin
>>28076121>>28076121Misha told us that prototype tanks are not a good idea. the Valiant is a prototype tank,
>>28076155that in no way addresses my post>>28076143stop being a chucklefuck >>28076162ITS A COMP SPEC READY TANK FOR 100 FUCKING DOLLARS, GODDAMNIT GS IS LAUGHING AT YOU CUNTS FOR NOT BUYING IT ALREADY
>>28076141That'll just giving them preconceived notions in a tank that will be soon taken away. The characteristics of a Churchill are nothing like the others, we'll have to detrain them first. The sooner we sell it, the sooner we get the new tanks. We can just rotate teams in the meantime.>>28076121Because it's a goddamn deathtrap, even Kitten told us not to buy it.
>>28076197>>28076207and now you're just shitposting>>28076191so you're all willing to be a tank down when we get into matches then? cause at this point, we need everything we can fucking get, hell, if we could, I'd resurrect the A7V sitting in that bank in Brisbane and get it fighting for us
>>28076234>if we could, I'd resurrect the A7V sitting in that bank in Brisbane and get it fighting for usCongratulations, you've pretty much blown all of your credibility to me.Hell no.
>>28076234look if we use that deathtrap some will get maimed or killed
>>28076191>Because it's a goddamn deathtrapand now you're over exaggerating, it was badly designed sure, but it ain't a death trap, and fuck, it has decent external crew protection when it ain't trying to remove the drivers foot, but fuck, we're schoolgirls and its comp spec, it ain't gonna kill anyone
>>28076254so you'd prefer to bring less guns to the match, less targets for the opposition to shoot at and less tactical and strategic flexibility?congrats, you're fucking retarded
>>28076268we wouldnt be able to enter it into the league if it was that bad, fuck it wouldn't be comp spec if it was that bad
>>28076234The Valiant wasn't safe to drive to begin with, and it exhausted the adult male driver in only a few hours. It's complete garbage, and not even pretty enough to put on display. It's 100 because somebody is trying to clear garage space, and it'd end up taking up valuable space in our garage. Fuck no, the Valiant stays unpurchased, and it needs to be dropped from the list.
>>28076191I still disagree on selling the Churchill so soon. I think the Bt-42 is more of a reason to convert or sell of everyone on so keen on selling tanks. I personally rather not sell any of the we have right now.
>>28076590>Churchill V Bt-42right now the only thing going for our little force is mobility, if the tanks cannot move as a wolfpack, they die, the Bt-42 is much faster than the churchill, and can be used for scouting and baiting, right now the churchill is useless except for its gun with the LJ adapter, which makes it a good stationary turret
>>28076747That's fine, it will give the crew practice for TD style tactics
CompSpec the Stuart first before even thinking of the Churchill or the BT-42.Hold off on any other purchases until the last tank in Lafayette is recovered first.A bit too late though since we just threw away $2k for an LJ adaptor, which will be useless to the Churchill once it starts using a 6pdr.
