Currently, you're meeting with the man himself in his shop while your girls were preparing themselves. Meanwhile, Jenner was overseeing Rin, who was training with Ushiyama and David for her "image song"."Ha! Glad to see that you're willing to help!" Marc chortles. "Can't seem to trust anyone these days, you know?">Ask him about what exactly you're supposed to be recovering.>Ask him who exactly you are dealing with.>Ask if he's willing to loan anything to you for this mission.>Other
>>30576792>Ask him about what exactly you're supposed to be recovering.>Ask him who exactly you are dealing with.
>>30576792>Ask him who exactly you are dealing with.
(Buckle up Anons, this is going to be a long one.)Senetor Stampingston: Gentlemen, it appears that our worst fears have come true. Clover Entertainment and their idols are getting even stronger. General Crozier, would you please report your findings? (1/4)
>>30576854Crozier: Clover's last performance, our surveillance team was monitoring their Harbinger comms. network via the MasterKey Program installed in every Harbinger Unit produced. When the Producer began eavesdropping, Cole somehow "jammed" the signal. This is a feat unheard of in military intelligence, and proves that her powers are evolving beyond our predictions. Should news of Harbinger's jamming be known, the world's armed forces will start to question the integrity of their Units and start looking for alternatives. This can lead to devastating consequences as one of our biggest sources of income is the production of Harbingers. In light of Cole's increasing skill as an idol and fighter, the other girls have noticed her growth, and begun to train harder and learn new skills to surpass her. What's worse is the fact that our MasterKey no longer works on Clover's unit as the Producer "accidentally" spilled coffee on the part that houses the Black Box, containing our surveillance equipment. This once again demonstrates that he is a tactical genius posing as an idiot.(Con't) (2/4)
>>30576792>>Ask him who exactly you are dealing with.Gang bangers? Drug runners? All-inclusive terrorist organizations?
>>30576792Ask all three I guess>Ask him about what exactly you're supposed to be recovering.>Ask him who exactly you are dealing with.>Ask if he's willing to loan anything to you for this mission.
>>30576880(Con't)With the clear threat of Clover, I say we send a team of spec ops Direct Controlling our cutest Girl Scout agents and make their deaths look like an accident with explosives after our agents sell them a bomb disguised as a box of cookies. This is much like what we did to the people who made the swimsuit that dissolved in water. (3/4)
>>30576792>Ask him about what exactly you're supposed to be recovering.>Ask him who exactly you are dealing with.Knowing the target and what guards we are dealing with
>>30576910>This is much like what we did to the people who made the swimsuit that dissolved in water.Jesus. Talk about a recipe for the breakdown of society.
>>30576910No, we need them alive. Let them consolidate their strength and grow. Until the time is right to initiate our plan, we will wait. (4/4)
>>30576792>Ask him about what exactly you're supposed to be recovering.>Ask him who exactly you are dealing with.If they're willing to kill Mercs, then we should not take any chances.
Why not rape a cute cyber idol for stress relief?
>>30576792he already said he would loan us a gernade launcher under mount. if im not mistaken atleast
>>30576938i laugh at the tribunal. they fail to see an opportunity in front of them. clover can be so co-opted into serving our propose if they only knew how to 'nudge' them in the right direction.
>>30576910>Girl Scout agentsKind of explains why I can't say no to them whenever they try to sell me their cookies.
>>30577068also the cookies are really fucking good.
>>30576792>>Ask him about what exactly you're supposed to be recovering.>>Ask him who exactly you are dealing with.
>>30577134i bet they are also good a spiking those cookies with drugs and such as well as bombings.
Just thought I should say this before we get to far in >Tease Cole>Tesla Coil
>>30576938MEANWHILE Crozier: Blacklight is going through them faster than we can obtain, she is too powerful for anyone to contain! By our estimates, she will only last a year with what we have on hand at the moment. (5/4)
>>30577175(Oops, forgot my trip)Mr. Selatcia: Good. When Blacklight is finished with them, the Clover Idols will be strong enough to provide a more "permanent" solution. Out of all of them, I foresee one in particular to be the most compatible for the Permanent Direct Control Procedure. After all, a powerful mind must have a powerful body. (Fin)
>>30576792"Okay, first of all, who exactly are we dealing with here, and what exactly did they steal from you?" You ask, narrowing your eyes. "If we're going to be helping you, I expect you to at least be honest with us."Marc blinks and then sighs."The goods that were stolen from me were the... 'less than legal' kind. Mainly military grade weaponry, with a few choice prototype bits. One of my contacts managed to 'lose' the shipment. Unfortunately, it got intercepted.""By who?" You ask again."Erm... a bunch of crazy eco-terrorist types. Never really liked dealing with groups like them.""Really?" You blink. "Out of moral obligation?""Hell no! They don't have money to pay me!" Marc grunts. "And if I have one moral standard it's that I never deal in credit!""Okay, so how bad are these guys?" You sigh."They've been around the block. Firebombed a few gene clinics, raided Umbrella facilities, stuff like that. They're not exactly trained fighters, but they're dedicated to their cause.""If they weren't trained, how did they take out your mercs?""You get what you pay for." Marc shrugs. "I just pulled some guys out of the Home Depot parking lot. Figured it was worth a shot."You have no words to respond to that."Anyways, like I promised, I'll loan you this underslung grenade launcher, with three high explosive shells." Marc says, pointing to a small box on the counter. "It should be compatible with your M55.">Okay, thanks. We'll let you know when we get your stuff back.>Actually, I'm in the mood to buy something...>Other
>>30577218>Actually, I'm in the mood to buy something...What can we buy?

>>30577218>Okay, thanks. We'll let you know when we get your stuff back.i thought we were saving our money to hire more people to fill the slots in the facility we need filled. like a doctor or a data center/hacker.
>>30577218>>>Okay, thanks. We'll let you know when we get your stuff back.
>>30577218>Okay, thanks. We'll let you know when we get your stuff back.Let's not go crazy on all-new gear right before a mission. If we get new guns that the girls aren't used to it might be more trouble than it's worth.
So when do you think we'll meet a trap/reverse trap idol? We gotta cover all our bases people.
>>30577218"Well actually, I'd like to see what you've got for sale right now." You say. "Might have something that we could use.""Sure thing!" Marc grins and hands you the catalog.http://pastebin.com/Jqs7RtTP"It's a bit generic right now, but once you get that shipment back I can start putting more specialized gear in!">Make any purchases? Your current treasury is 3300 dollars.
>>30577218>>Actually, I'm in the mood to buy something...We should at least see what we can get
welp now we can;t hire another person after this job.
>>30577575I feel like we should get some Ballistic vests. I forget if Julie already has one though. If she does, maybe get her a Riot shield instead.
>>30577575The Carapace armor would be great for Julie.>>30577624Quit your bitching.
Reminder that we only have a passanger van right now. Might want a humvee if this mission requires it.
>>30577575Give the Cole and Julie a AK-74 Julie a Riot ShieldRochelle has a gun already.all of them tacitical vests
>>30577634Even though she has SWAT armor, it's pretty ancient and beat up, so it's essentially the equivalent of a modern tactical vest.
>>30577575All I can think of at the moment is:>Riot Shield>2 AK-74
If you haven't noticed already, the OP has a new pastebin labeled LOADOUTS which shows what items you currently have and what the idols are currently armed with.http://pastebin.com/qDDRM85F
>>30577575Carapace armor for Julie, give Cole the AK-74 and Tactical vests for Rochelle and Cole.
>>30577575....not bad. i am almost tempted to sell the passenger van for an armored SUV and a humvee. but i still do want to get a new employee to fill our ranks. but picking up a couple of AK-74 isn't a bad thing either way.
>>30577575Not an expansive selection, but certainly workable.I say we grab a humvee, up-armor it, an extra M66 SMG for Julie, a couple AK's, and maybe a few ballistic vests.
>>30577575Hey merc what does our current armory look like?
>>30577688>http://pastebin.com/qDDRM85FWhat, isn't the M66 enough for Rochelle?
Finally caught upI know the biker club boss was Kaneda but I couldn't help but picture him as JP from Redline, the mental image fit perfectly for me
>>30577715>I say we grab a humvee, up-armor it, an extra M66 SMG for Julie, a couple AK's, and maybe a few ballistic vests.Dude, that'll nearly break the bank. You're looking at 3000, when we only have 3300.And that's after we just got paid for our most recent gig, AND that's before monthly maintenance and salaries.
>>30577575Give Cole an Ak-74and everyone Ballistic VestsJulie A Riot ShieldTotal=1900
>>30577700the influence pastebin i take it the more jobs we do in that sector, the higher we go in them?
>>30577673Ah. In that case, give her a Ballistic vest. It won't dip into our funds too much, won't require extra training, and if we give her carapace armor later the vest can be given to someone else.
>>30577777i agree, we don't have much to buy with. we have to make the payrole first.
>>30577777Well how much exactly are we left looking at after taking upkeep into account?
>>30577830Monthly upkeep is 1700 if I remember correctly. We really shouldn't spend all our money right now just because this is the first chance we've had to shop.
>>30577781I would actually not give Cole anything more than a better sidearm. She's our mage.
>>30577830Your current upkeep is 1800 credits. This is always subtracted from your payment.
>>30577830its like 1k if my memory is right.
>>30577575Cole: Ak-74Julie: Riot Shield=400
>>30577885Seconding. Let's not spend too much money.
>>30577869I'm not risking her going unarmed and with just a 9mm, also lightening is her secret weapon. An Ak-74 is cheap, we can at least give her that.
>>30577869>I would actually not give Cole anything more than a better sidearmI disagree. She should get a ballistic vest, since while she can fling lightning, she hasn't gotten to the point where she can generate an EM Shield to protect herself from bullets.
>>30577901I'd prefer giving Cole a handcannon or some similar one handed weapon. But whatever, it looks like we're going for a Ak-74
>>30577901>>30577885Ak-74 are for trading.>>30577916>she can generate an EM Shield to protect herself from bullets.That is physically impossible
>>30577700Merc, can I ask Marc some questions:"I know it's not on your catalog, but can you get a good hunting rifle with a scope? Or a good scope attachment for our rifle?""Also, is there a chance that the terrorists can open your shipment and use it against us? What could we be fighting against?"
So, the current consensus seems to be:AK-74 for ColeRiot Shield for Julie>Confirm?>Y>N
>>30577968How good are the Ak-47 in comparison to the M55 Assault rifles we already have
>>30578056Strike that >AK-74>Cheap and plentiful, the AK-74 is one of the most commonly traded and used weapons in he world. Very tough and reliable, but lacks the versatility and special functions more modern firearms have.>M66 SUBMACHINE GUN>A cheap, compact weapon with punch, the M66 comes with a built in silencer and laser sight.The guns we have are way better.
>>30577968Merc, can I ask Marc some questions:"I know it's not on your catalog, but can you get a good hunting rifle with a scope? Or a good scope attachment for our rifle?""Also, is there a chance that the terrorists can open your shipment and use it against us? What could we be fighting against?"
>>30578077...Are you in HMQ right now anon?
>>30578104>M66 SUBMACHINE GUNWhoops wrong gun>M55 ASSAULT RIFLE>The standard US military assault rifle, the M55 is a versatile weapon whose capabilities can be expanded through numerous attachments.
I really hope there isn't some sort of superpowered gang in the Tombs led by this guy.
>>30578056Similar stopping power, but the M55 is lighter, more stable, more accurate, and more portable. Also, nobody makes attachments for AK-74s anymore.>>30577968>AK-74 and Riot Shield purchased!>-$400>$2900 remain"Ah, always good to see a customer making a purchase!" Marc beams. "I do have a concern, though." You frown. "What if they try to use the weapons against us?""Oh, don't worry about that!" Marc shakes his head. "I'm always careful when it comes to my merchandise! The cargo is kept in sealed crates protected with encrypted locks. It'll take some time for them to crack them open.""I see." You nod. On the drive back to the office, you ping K-Zwolf through your Harbinger connection. You had him recon the area just to be safe."K-Zwolf, report." "AT LEAST EIGHT HOSTILES CONFIRMED. LIGHTLY ARMED WITH HANDGUNS AND SUBMACHINE GUNS. HAVE IDENTIFIED THREE POTENTIAL POINTS OF ENTRY."You then see a holographic display of the warehouse with three dots glowing at said points. You see that there was one point on the roof, one at the back door, and another at what looked to be a secondary loading dock."TACTICAL SUGGESTION. BREACH ALL ENTRY POINTS AT ONCE FOR MAXIMUM EFFECT."Well, there were pros and cons to that. Generally, it was the best strategy to assault a building, but you simply didn't have the numbers. It'd be safer to keep all the girls together and focus on one point of entry, but then that meant the defenders could focus all their efforts on that one area...>Split the girls and assault all three points at once.>Keep the the girls together and assault only one of the points.>Other
>>30578155>>Split the girls and assault all three points at once.Attack on multiple fronts, decrease their potential concentrated firepower.
>>30578155>Split the girls and assault all three points at once.Divide and conquor

>>30578155>>Split the girls and assault all three points at once.
>>30578155I'd suggest a distraction play. K-Zwolf makes noise around the back door and the girls go for the roof.
>>30578155X OtherHave K-Zwolf place frag grenade clusters made by Fenn at Entries 1, 2, and 3. Detonate them at once, and have all 3 girls assault through 1 entry point.Force the enemy to think there are 3 teams, when there's only one, and get them to thin themselves out.
>>30578216this sounds interesting, I'll back it
>>30578155>OtherAssault 2 points at once, and set up some explosives to cause a distraction at the third.Julie and Cole on one team, Rochelle and K-Z on another. Then, just a remote detonation on the third entrance.
>>30578155>Split the girls and assault all three points at once.this is a job, and needs to be done right.
>>30578192Woops, typo.>Mikoto Suoh
>>30578216That sounds like a pretty good idea.
>>30578169>>30578172>>30578178>>30578187>>30578204>>30578236We didn't get them any upgraded armor, and you want all of them to breach? The most likely time for them to get shot?
>>30578155>Keep the the girls together and assault only one of the points.Never split the party.
>>30578279having them bunched together isn't that great of an idea. if they get pinned down they are pretty much fucked
>>30578279They have flashbangs for a reason
>>30578216Sounds like a good idea. To improve on that, use flash bang grenades as the primary distraction, and frag traps as booby traps if they try to escape anyways.
>>30578216I like this plan.
>>30578279They have flash bangs, and putting them together makes them an easy target.
>>30578296>To improve on that, use flash bang grenades as the primary distractionBut we want it to look like all three entry points are being breached, and frags to blow open holes at the entry points will make the deception more likely to succeed.We can still trap the escape routes with remote detonated frag traps, too.
>>30578155[X] Keep Rochelle and Julie together, have Cole assault from above after Julie breaches
>Keep the the girls together and assault only one of the points.
>>30578216This sounds workable.
>>30578216Supporting. This sounds good.
>>30578155"I got a better idea." You say. "We'll have all the girls stack at one entrance. We'll create distractions at the other two entrances with explosives to confuse the enemy and make them THINK there's a simultaneous assault occurring.""TACTICAL CHOICE APPEARS ACCEPTABLE.""Alright, come on back, K-Zwolf."Now all you need to figure out is which door to enter through. The back door was probably the easiest, but also the most obvious. No doubt it would be the most heavily guarded of the three. For the loading dock, you'd have to get those big heavy doors open, and there weren't many ways to do that quietly. The roof was probably the least guarded, but the problem was actually getting up there undetected.>Enter through the back door.>Enter through the loading dock.>Enter through the roof.
>>30578376>Enter through the roof.FUCK YEAH! DEATH FROM ABOVE
>>30578389But how do we get up there?
>>30578376>Enter through the roof.Seems like the best option if we can manage it.
>>30578376>Enter through the roof.Can we find a ladder or another building to get to the roof?
>>30578376>>Enter through the roof.
>>30578389>>30578396How do we get up there, and none of the girls are really trained to rappel down.
>>30578376>>Enter through the loading dock.
>>30578376Use the distractions as the window to enter through the roof
>>30578376Loading dock. If we can make staggered explosions, we can disguise the door sounds with big booms
>>30578376Use the explosions as the window to enter from the roof
>>30577916I agree. We had ought to at least ensure that each of the idols has armor
>>30578376>Enter through the roof.
>>30578376 >Enter through the roof.
>>30578439that makes sense
>>30578376You determine that the best entrance would be through the roof. Now, the only problem would be actually getting up there. You take another look at the recon data K-Zwolf collected. There's definitely a ladder, but it's behind a locked fence. Picking the lock would be time consuming, and cutting open the lock or fence might noise. You also notice there's a construction crane sitting up against the wall of the warehouse. It would be feasible to climb up it, but it was a bit dangerous looking.>Try to pick the lock to the ladder.>Just cut the fence.>Climb up the crane.>Other
>>30578583>Try to pick the lock to the ladder.
>>30578583>>Climb up the crane.
>>30578583>Pick the lock
>>30578583>>Try to pick the lock to the ladder.I wonder if Cole could silently cut the the shackle with lightning?

>>30578583Give them Red Bull.
>>30578583>Try to pick the lock to the ladder.K-Zwolf can watch over.
>>30578583>Try to pick the lock to the ladder.It's not like we're in a huge hurry.
>>30578642Ah, good point
>>30578583>Try to pick the lock to the ladder.damn man, don't you have bolt cutters? a good one can pop a lock off in seconds.
>>30578720gooby pls.Powered maglock system with bars so thick you can't even get a bolt cutter around them made out of a highly temperature resistant alloy.Quit bein' a turd.
>>30578583You resolve to pick the lock or something like. You're sure at least Julie or Cole would know how to do it. Cyberhounds definitely could do it if needed, as well.You finally return to the office, where you immediately go to check on your girls. Sure enough, Rochelle, Julie, and Cole were down in the armory getting ready, with Falynn making sure all their equipment was in order."All right girls, I come bearing gifts!" You say, handing out your newly purchased items. "A shield for Julie and a rifle for Cole!""Thank you, Producer!" Julie beams."Thanks, I guess?" Cole frowns as she looks at the AK-74. "It looks like a piece of junk."You were tempted to tell her that it WAS a piece of junk, but hold it in."Okay girls, you all know what our next mission is, right? We're going to help out our friend Marc by recovering his guns. Now, unlike the prom, this is a full combat mission. This means it's very likely, and your expected, the use lethal force. Do all of you understand that?""Yes, Producer!" They all respond.You glance at their vitals just to make sure. Julie and Cole were perfectly calm. Not surprising. Being from the Tombs has probably prepared them for a LOT. What concerned you though were Rochelle's readings. Her heartbeat was spiking You guess that coming from a more normal upbringing, she's not quite used to idea of killing."Rochelle, are you okay?" You ask."Yes sir!" She says quickly. "I'm perfectly fine!"Her vitals tell a different story, as her heart rate spikes again.>Confront her about it.>Leave it for now. You might make things worse.>Other
>>30578893>Confront her about it.Don't be a liability, Rochelle.
>>30578893>Confront her about it.Tell her it's normal to feel this way. Hell, tell her how Producer felt about his first kill.
>>30578893>>Confront her about it.Take her out back
>>30578893>Confront her about it.Tell her about your first kill.
>>30578928>>30578961There are some things one never forgets.
>>30578893>>Confront her about it.>>Leave it for now. You might make things worse.>>OtherDo it in private later.
>>30578893>Tell Julie and Cole to secure the front while you and Rochelle watch the rear.>Use the chance to confront her about it.
>>30578893>Confront her about it.be easy about it.>>30578863no one said it was a mag lock. and even if it is a mag lock, we have Cole for that. a quick zap and the lock fries, then it's easy to open.
This pretty much guarantees our next combat Idol is from the tombs, and that it will be the 1 armed chick.
>>30578893>OtherTake her aside on the pretense of going over tactical suggestions, then tell her that it's normal to feel what she's feeling. Tell her a story from when Producer was a green recruit fresh out of boot on his first combat patrol.
>>30579051Wonder what kind of personality she has?
>>30579073i just wonder what setting she is taken from. I can accept to pick up one more from the Tombs, but we need to go for a higher shelf of idol next. we need to poke around the suburbs to see who would be the next dance and sing type to help round out our band.
>>30578893>Confront her about it, tell her about when we were greenWhile bringing it up openly might cause issues with her it will probably make Julie and Cole keep an eye out for her during the mission
>>30579141We could always go with this anon's suggestion:>>30577564
>>30578893"Julie, Cole, why don't you test out that near gear? Break it in." You say, trying to distract them so you can get a private moment with Rochelle. The moment they turn away, you turn to Rochelle."Rochelle, is something wrong?" You ask."No sir." She says."There's no need to lie, Rochelle. I'm your Producer. It's my JOB to help you." You sigh. "Now what's the matter?""I... I'm not sure if I can actually KILL someone." Rochelle frowns. "I mean, I hear you and my dad talk about it all the time. Julie and Cole also seem to boast about killing at least a guy or two. I just feel... I don't know. Afraid? Anxious? Will I be able to do it? Will it change me?"You nod. These were all perfectly normal questions to ask.>Try to reassure her. You need her focused on the mission.>Bench her for now. She's probably not ready.>Other
>>30579257>Try to reassure her. You need her focused on the mission.Just remember: It's one thing to be afraid. It's another thing to let that fear stop you from helping your friends.
>>30579257>Try to reassure her. You need her focused on the mission.
>>30579257>>Try to reassure her. You need her focused on the mission.However you can always tell her she doesn't have to do so. Give her the option.
>>30579257>Tell her about your first kill. How it affected you. How you never forget it. Ever.>Ask her if she wants to back out. You won't hold it against her.
>>30579257>Try to reassure her. You need her focused on the mission.If they shoot aim you, they aim to kill. Respond likewise. Else try to disable.
>>30579289I like this. Also add a story about green us from way back then if that helps.
>>30579257>>>Try to reassure her. You need her focused on the mission.Wait we met her Dad?
>>30579257>>Try to reassure her. You need her focused on the mission.Can't have you backing out now, girl.
>>30579328I'm pretty sure we haven't.
>>30579257>Try to reassure her. You need her focused on the mission.tell her we were like too once.
>>30579257>Reassure her, tell her it is natural to be uneasy at the thought of killing people and that it is a good thing because you should never look forward to killing you just do it when there is no other way
>>30579257>Try to reassure her. You need her focused on the mission.Pragmatically, its better that she gets her murder-cherry popped sooner, rather than later. It gives us time to evaluate and figure out how to deal with any issues she may develop whilst we've still got time.This mission is nice because we explicitly are going to kill some people, so she can go into the situation at least somewhat mentally prepared for that possibility. Better now, when we are aiming to do it deliberately, than later if she accidentally goes too far with other methods.Might even be a good bonding point to share with Cole and Julie.
>>30579257>OtherHave her help with coordination and planning.She's fortunate. She hasn't had the necessity of needing to take a life. It's easier for the others because they've done it before, or have been in bad circumstances. Quite honestly, I'd prefer NOT to send the small girl into a warzone when she doesn't want to be there. Having her in a command position? She'll want to plan things the best they can, because it will save her friends lives, and the detachment will help her remain sane for the idol business.
>>30579257>Try to reassure her. You need her focused on the mission.>OtherProducer was just like her, once. Green rookie straight out of boot.It will change her, but it's up to her if it will stop her.
>>30579257You sigh. You've been in this situation before."Look, Rochelle, it's perfectly normal to feel fear before your first actual combat mission." You say, putting a reassuring hand on her shoulder. "Even I used to be a scared recruit, and I'm sure your father was too.""Y-yeah, I know that in my head, but every time I think about it..." "Rochelle, you know what I learned? On my first day out in Kurdistan, I was just any other Fuckin' New Guy. Young, green, and totally ignorant. One day, like an idiot, I go out perimeter patrol by myself. Suddenly, I'm jumped by a militant.""What did you do?" Rochelle asks."Well, I had a chance to shoot him, but I froze up in fear." You sigh. "That gave him enough time to tackle me and we were both struggling for the weapon. My mind was racing, my heart was beating, and I wasn't thinking clearly. And then.... and then it all just came together.""Huh?"(cont)
>>30579580"At one point in that struggle, my mind just seemed to stop, and there was only one thought my head. I was just thinking 'this motherfucking is ruining my day and I have to do something about it.' And then, everything became clear. I let him take my rifle and I pushed him back. Drew my pistol and put three shots center mass without a second thought.""H-how did you do it?" Rochelle's eyes widen as she leans in closer."Well, I guess on that day, I learned something important." You shrug. "Danger is real, but fear is an ILLUSION. It's merely our anxiety over things that have not, and may NEVER, happen. Keep your mind focused on the present. You have a mission to complete. You have friends to protect. As long as you remember that you can do anything. That help?""Yeah. I actually helps a lot." Rochelle grins and nods. "Thanks, sir.""No problem-"Rather than her usual salute, Rochelle hugs you. Caught off guard, you can only sputter a bit as you try to regain your composure."I'm good to go, sir." Rochelle smiles.Suddenly, your phone beeps. You take it out and see that you got a text from JENNER.CAN YOU MEET ME IN YOUR OFFICE?>Y>N
>>30579595YWish the girls good luck. Headpats all around and go.
>>30579595>YOkay, keep prepping for the mission I have a few things to take care of
what loadout are we outfitting KZ-Wolf with?Close-protection?
>>30579832Whatever makes for the most suppressive fire.
>>30579595"All right. Make sure to get geared up, okay?" You smile and ruffle Rochelle's hair before getting up to leave. "I'll be right back."You then make your way back to your office. Sure enough, Jenner is waiting for there."Something up?" You ask."Well, yes, actually." Jenner nods. "We've actually got an offer.""For what?" You blink."Radio interview. Apparently that prom performance raised some eyebrows. Their scheduled interview didn't show up, so we're their backup. They want to interview Rin.""Really?" You pause. A radio promotion would be really helpful. "It's legit?""I've checked. It's real as far as I can tell." Jenner nods. "I know you've got a mission coming up. I can just take Rin there myself.""Are you sure? I mean, if something happens-""I can handle myself, Producer. You do know what line of work I used to be in, right?" Jenner grins. "Besides, I don't think anybody would be targeting us yet.">Ok, if you say so.>I really think I should send someone to keep an eye on you.>Other
>>30579881>>30579832what are his current kits
>>30579897>Ok, if you say so.

>>30579897>>Ok, if you say so.Trust.
>>30579897>>Ok, if you say so
>>30579897What if we send KZ-Wolf with her?
>>30579897>Just make sure she's prepped for it.
>>30579938She was DEA, I'm pretty sure she can handle herself.
>>30579938I would think that is a fair precaution, the other three should be capable enough for this job
>>30579897"Ok, if you say so." You nod. "Good luck then.""Be sure to tune in." Jenner grins.With that done, you head back down to the workshop. At this point, Rochelle, Julie, and Cole have all been geared up, and they are donning their combat armor and weapons. Falynn pats them all down for a final equipment check."All green!" She says, giving you a thumbs up."What about K-Zwolf?" You ask."Oh right! You might want to run something other than the recon pack!" Falynn nods. >Heavy Support>Close Combat>Close Protection>Recon
>>30580055>>Heavy SupportWe will have suppressing fire.

>>30580080Protection is smoke/flashbangs and suppressive fire.
>>30580055>Heavy Support. We need the big booms as a distraction
>>30580103What if they manage to break the boxes?I'd like insurance for the girls to cover behind.>>30580055>>30580080Supporting CLose Protection
>>30580113Not to mention to focus aggro on K-Zwolf instead of the girls.
>>30580119what...boxes?This isn't a cover shooter, bro. You don't stop moving until the IFF registers no hostiles.
>>30580164The weapon shipment boxes.Just because the weapons suppliers says their crackproof doesnt they wont be.
>>30580055"Falynn, arm up K-Zwolf with the heavy support package. I want as much firepower as possible.""Sure thing!" Falynn grins. With K-Zwolf ready to go with his shiny new missile launchers and heavy machine gun, everybody loads up in the van. Falynn gives you all a wave as you drive off.The warehouse was quite a distance away, considering it was all the way in District Seven. Very quickly, the cityscape began to give way to countless factories, warehouses, and other industrial buildings. You park the van some distance away from the target area."Okay girls, it's go time. Remember what I taught you, and I'll be keeping an eye on you. All right?" Your girls nod and pile out of the van, with K-Zwolf following close behind. Keeping an eye through Harbinger, you see the girls silently approaching the warehouse. Fortunately, the thieves don't really have any mobile patrols set up. They're all concentrated at the main entrance.K-Zwolf moves up and quietly begins to pick the lock to the ladder.>roll 1d20
>>30580186Man, you need to proof your sentences before hitting enter, dog.I don't know. Sometimes that's the price of business.That aside, why the shit would they be stored in the middle of the warehouse floor? Still isn't a video game.
>>30580321he is not talking about using them for cover
>>30580328An excellent roll...
>>30580328>>30580333>>30580336The Tribunal sees that it is most beneficial to have Clover succeed.
>>30580347I know, he's talking about the units being damaged by gunfire/otherwise, which is what I was addressing with "why are they storing them in the middle of the warehouse floor"
>>30580321What are you on about.I mean they may have already cracked the weapons boxes and retrieved the weapons to use against our girls.This isn't the first time we've been offered this mission and the likelihood of them having opened a few is significantly higher.Heavy support can help kill them faster but close protection can save our girls if they get surprised but its a moot point now.
>>30580328And just like that, the lock silently clicks open. Your girls quietly climb up one by one, with K-Zwolf covering them. Once all the girls are clear, K-Zwolf begins to climb the ladder itself, though it's slightly hampered due to its extra weight. Finally, it makes its way up to the roof of the building and regroups with the girls."Yo, Producer." Cole whispers. "I found the fuse box to the place. If I fry it, we can shut down power to the whole building."While that was tempting, your girls didn't have proper nightvision gear. K-Zwofl had special optics so it wouldn't be inconvenienced. On the other hand, you're sure the thieves would be more confused by the power outage.>Kill the power.>Leave the power on.>Other

Julie whispers."FIRING."With a THUMP, K-Zwolf fires a salvo of minimissiles, which fly out and land at the back door and loading dock, rippling both areas with explosions. At the same time, Julie gives the roof door a hard kick, smashing it open before moving in. The rest of the team and K-Zwolf follow her in.>roll 4d20

>>30580629>DOUBLE 20 ROLLED>YOU NOW HAVE 3 STAR POWER POINTSThe girls drop down into what looks like an administrative office. You see that there are three men inside, who are completely unprepared for the forced entry. They try to reach for their guns, but it's too late. Julie bum rushes the closest enemy, swinging her riot shield out and impacting it against his head with a sickening CRUNCH. Cole closes with the second man and gives him a powerful lightning punch so fierce he literally catches fire. The third man is taken down by a burst from Rochelle's M66.And just like that, the room is cleared."I... I did it...." You hear Rochelle mumble."What was that?" Julie turns her head."N-nothing!" Rochelle shakes her head. "What have we got?""Nothing special about these guys. No augs or biomods. They're also only packing basic guns."That seems to corroborate Marc's story that these guys were amateurs."I have a visual on the cargo." Rochelle says as she peeks out the window of the office. There, sitting among various stored goods are a row of silver crates. "Looks like it's still intact.""I also see a lot of hostiles moving about." Julie grunts. I count about eight.""We've got the high ground here. We'll have the advantage in a gunfight." Rochelle says."Yeah, and they'll immediately figure out where we are." Cole snorts.

>>30581025>>30581063Both Rochelle and K-Zwolf fire their weapons, sweeping the ground floor with automatic fire. You can see and hear men screaming as they dive for cover in an effort to find shelter from the assault. One man isn't quite so lucky, and is ripped to shreds by K-Zwolf's HMG. Most of the rest of the thieves dive into cover and stay there, while a few try to return fire, spraying the office. One bullet punches through the wall and strikes Rochelle in the chest, causing her to stumble for a bit. You quickly check her vitals and are relieved to see that they're still stable.""Rochelle, you okay?" You ask."Just winded. Didn't even penetrate the vest." Rochelle sighs, brushing away at her vest."Hey, Producer, me and Juile are in position." You hear Cole hiss. "You want us to take out the shooters or the guys hiding in cover?"Taking out the shooters meant taking pressure off Rochelle and K-Zwolf, but that would mean leaving Cole and Julie open to potential counterattack by the men taking cover.>Focus on the shooters.>Focus on the ones in cover.>Other

Cole nods and turns to Julie. "Flash out!"Julie grins and pulls several flashbangs from her vest. Both girls pull the pins on their flashbangs and toss them in between the shooters and Rochelle.

I just realized that as our idols are getting more famous, the harder it will be to do combat missions (not to mention walking around in public). Then again, we can use this to our advantage by having our idols "suddenly appear" for an autograph session or impromptu song, drawing attention away from the rest of the team.
>>30582383Or, you know, just wear bandanas and masks, and generally not be shitty at their jobs.P-San and Jenner already know how to run a tight ship, and I'm sure that they're wearing gloves and masks.

I don't understand these votes for the railgun. What use is a gun if you can't find, see, or identify the people to kill?
>>30582464>Oracle ATDSFar more useful than the other twoThe shield for Julie is a close second and the rwilgun while sounding like a good idea doesn't suit Cole's aka the one person capable of really getting the most out of it style

>>30582646That's why we have K-Zwolf.
>>30582646Then mount it on a vehicle and shoot it from outside.Or it's like a anti-tank rifle, deploy it and fire.

>>30582464>>TOHA HEAVY INDUSTRIES ARC-920 RAILGUN
>>30582679Sniper Rifles don;t work like that....
>>30582677The difference between a railgun and a machine gun is pretty obvious.
>>30582724Not really? Merc said it has a variable rate of fire, meaning that it probably is a machine gun that trades ROF for a greater gauss charge on any given projectile.
>>30582464>TOHA HEAVY INDUSTRIES ARC-920 RAILGUN
>>30582724It has missle pods?I don't understand why we have something the eqivalent of a tank buster?
>>30582739And the machine gun does not have that option. This isn't exactly rocket science here.
>>30582464Let's just stick with the 3000 dollars. We can buy all that stuff we saw in his catalog earlier that everyone wanted.

>>30582757So we don't even need to breach a build next time? Just shoot through the walls from a distance?
>>30582757Micro - missiles aren't exactly tank busters.
>>30582776Do we have a need for it?
>>30582464WEYLAND YUTANI ORACLE ACTIVE THREAT DETECTION SYSTEM
>>30582766But...why would you want it?Joule for joule, dollar for dollar, the railgun doesn't make a lot of sense when you compare its opportunity cost to any potential value.You can already get HE rounds, you can already get SLAP rounds for a/the machine gun.
>>30582795To safely dispatch enemies at an extreme distance?
>>30582776Because opportunity cost is a real thing.
>>30582464Okay, it seems like opinion is split. REVOTE TIME.You know the drill. Link and vote number only. Five minute time limit.1. Railgun2. Oracle
>>30582809We have Sniper Rifles for that?This seems impractical
>>30582795Long-distance problem solver. We can mount it on a vehicle or one of our girls can use it for sniping overwatch--because nothing says "FUCK YOU" better than a HI-EX railgun slug moving at hitscan speeds obliterating an enemy's upper body from 3 miles away.

>>30582910Dude, I wanted us to go with the 3000 dollars. Then we could by smaller versions of both of these, or other stuff.I mean, a tank-size railgun is nice and all, but useless if we can't set it up beforehand or can't fit it somewhere. Compare that to a smaller one, which will pack enough punch anyway, but will also be less of a pain to lug around and easier for Cole to power. Which sounds better?
>>30582953....this anon got his priorities right.
>>30582970I would have liked it too but we weren't getting that the moment Merc dangled shiny new toys in front of /tg/The Oracle system is useful though and the shield would work quite well for Julie IMO, get a pair and she can go three kingdoms on assholes
>>30582973I really wish merc had put a >keep the 3000 option on that post. Might have made people remember how much we were paying for this stuff.
>>30582945I don't understand how, to either. It's nearly perfect situational awareness that can be applied to so many other things than just killing mooks on a fetch quest.You explain your reasoning and I'll provide mine.
>>30582973i'm still baffled by all these people throwing away a chance to hire some one and improve our business, just for a weapon/shield that will not be used often.(they will choose the non-lethal option most of the time if given the choice)
>>30583031fucking dumbasses is what they are.OI MERC! we still getting paid right?
>>30583031Aye.3k is much more useful now.To get stuff like better body armour, NV goggles and more staff.
>>30583031A new hire isn't all that essential, whereas I'd wager that th Oracle system could be a gamechanger once it's integrated into Harbinger.Imagine being able to get a perfect high res scan of an audience's heart rate and hormone secretions. It's basically the most insane targeted marketing scheme ever developed.
>>30583052You mean our electric flinging brawler who likes to punch things rather than rely on a ranger weapon who may not be even able to lift this railgun let alone fight with it

>>30583052Cole....who only senses things with a CNS, who can't share that information with others except verbally, who also can't be relied on to do nothing but provide half-baked situational awareness?Oracle is fully integrated whole-team equipment and software.

Enjoy it!"With that, Marc gets into his truck and prepares to drive off."Oh right, and you'd better get going before the police arrive! Their response time is garbage, but you still don't want to be here when they finally come!""Thanks." You nod. "Come on, girls.""Whoa, is that a new piece of gear?" Rochelle's eyes widen. "That thing looks so cool! Can I try it on?""Sure." You shrug and hand the Oracle to Rochelle. She puts it on and you have to keep from sniggering. It looks like she's wearing monocle."How does it look?" She asks."Stupid." Cole laughs."It does look really silly." Julie snickers as well."Sir?" Rochelle turns to you."If you want my opinion, I don't think the designers really thought things through." You say, trying suppress the urge to laugh. "Well... maybe Falynn can do something about that." Rochelle sighs as she takes the Oracle off and hands it back to you.""I suppose." You nod.

>>30583275>figure it out laterWe could probably switch it about but I actually think that Julie or Rochelle should be sharing it so they can alternately use it when breaching or watching from a higher position
>>30583275>I'll figure it out later.Still upset we didn't get the 3000. Good to know how much a railguncosts though.

>>30583359Well, you say that...

>>30583359Yes, but that wasn't the point I was making.Cole herself will get less benefit from it because she has a natural ability that overlaps with it, while the team as a whole will get the same benefit no matter who we put it on. Thus, don't give it to Cole. It's a simple matter of efficiency.
>>30583275Eh, you'll figure it out later. Might as well give it to Falynn to tinker with first. Maybe she can make it not look so stupid, too.On the drive back, Cole and Julie are continually bragging about what they supposedly did or didn't do during the battle in an effort to one up each other. Rochelle, however, seems extremely quiet, as if contemplating something. You should probably talk to her or direct her Lillith after this.Then you remember that Rin's radio interview is supposed to be on right about now. You quickly activate the van's radio."And so can you tell us more about Clover Entertainment?" You hear the interviewer say. Damn, you missed part of it already!"Ah, well," You hear Rin's voice speaking. "We're still a rather small idol company, but we're starting to claw our way up there. Us being on this radio show is proof of that!""I don't doubt you there!" The interviewing chuckles. "How about your fellow idols? How do you feel about them?""They're a silly, crazy, slightly violent bunch but... I love them all like sisters regardless. They all look out for me so I have to make sure that I do my best, too!" Rin says happily."Well said, well said. It looks like time's up. You have any last words for the audience?""Please support Clover Entertainment!" Rin says, injecting as much cuteness into her voice as possible. "You won't regret it!"(Cont)
>>30583645With that, the radio cuts to commercial and you shut it off. You can't help but grin at how endearing Rin was on air. You adjust the mirror to see the girls' reactions, but you see they've all fallen asleep. You just smile and shake your head.By the time you return to the office, it's already fairly late. You wake up the girls and they groggily and reluctantly pile out of the van and strip out of their combat gear, leaving it lying all over the ground. You'd normally chastise them for this, but you decide to let it go for now."Busy day?" Jenner asks."Very." You sigh. "How about you?""Went about as good as it could." Jenner nods. "Got $2000 for our trouble.""I got a fancy monocle.""I heard monocles are stylish these days." Jenner grins.

You then head up to the dorms, where you manage to catch Rochelle sitting on the sofa, her legs tucked up against her chest."Hey Rochelle." You say."Hey, Sir." Rochelle says quietly."Mind if I sit down?""Sure."You sit down next to Rochelle and eye her carefully.

>>30583946that sounds like the important ones choice.
>>30583799>>Only the important ones.This makes the most sense
>>30583946>>30583963In that he doesn't forget them, but there are too many to know them all.
>>30583963>>30583970He doesn't regret what he's done and he knows we made the right choices, but it still doesn't stop him for mourning the loss of innocence.
>>30583970So only the important ones.You technically never forget any face you've ever seen - but I'm willing to bet you can't recite every nameless stranger you've met in your life, save for the ones that stood out.i.e. The important ones.
>>30583799"Well," you sigh. "Sometimes, it feels like I remember every single person I've killed, and I've ended up killing a LOT of people during my time in the army.""I see." Rochelle sighs. "So how do you deal with it?""Look, Rochelle, there are some you can forget, once you've made your peace. Others, you just can't forget ever. Like your first kill, and those you didn't want to kill.""It's just...." Rochelle scrunches up even tighter. "Every time I close my eyes. Every time I blink, I see that guy's face right when I killed him. It's just burned into my memory.""Like I said, nobody forgets their first." You sigh. "You know, if you ever get the chance, you should talk to your father about it. I'm sure he can tell it better than me.""Maybe...""If it's any consolation, it gets easier after that." You say. "Yes, I know it sounds callous, but it's life or death out there, moral concerns become the least of your worries. You're a strong kid. I know you can pull through.""I'll try, sir." Rochelle nods."And hey, we got Lillith here too. She' pretty good at this stuff as well. You should talk to her when you've go the time.""Thanks, sir." Rochelle grins and hugs you for a second time. "Just talking to you feels like it took a huge load off my chest.""Like I said, it's part of my job." You chuckle. "Better go get some sleep. We've got more training tomorrow.""There's ALWAYS more training." Rochelle pouts."Gotta be prepared, you know." You laugh. "Now go on!"You watch as Rochelle returns to her room. She pauses and gives you a quick wave before closing the door.Heh, that Rochelle. In some ways she reminds you a lot of yourself, way back when...>And that's it for tonight! Tune in next week for the next thread! Remember that Magical Girl Hunter is on Sunday and PJ Witches on Friday!

>>30583999Everyone handles it differently. Some dwell, some don't even think about it. The important thing is to somehow keep functioning.
