The attempt on Rin's life yesterday was still wearing on you, and the fact that you had no leads was incredibly frustrating. As a precaution, you had Rin stay over at the office for the night, where the other girls could keep an eye on her. For her part, Rin seemed to be taking things well, but you could tell she was a bit shaken at the thought that she was nearly sucked through a jet engine. However, you were still the Producer, and you had a job to do."Ah, Producer, you're here." Jenner greets you as you enter. "You have an important call waiting for you in your office.">Go see what it is.>They can stay on hold a little longer. Check on your idols.>Other

I checked last thread's pastebin and the one today, why is it the same wasn't' the Districts 1 and 2 increased
>>32047744Merc channeling Fap Angel then with out the Young?
Been doing some thinking and I think DeRosa sent mercs to sabotage the show.1. We have 2 known enemies (DeRosa and the Worker's Union)-the worker's main enemy is our Sponsor not us-DeRosa told us not to enter their territory or else2. The location of the attack: The Airfield-we were only attacked at the airfield. The airfield is presumably located in District 1 or 2 (one of which is known DeRosa territory)3. Why hire mercs instead of sending idols?-whoever did it didn't want to be directly connected to the crime-hiding their true capabilities by outsourcing(?)4. How did they find out?-the organizers posted who would be there as well as the events taking place most likely in a schedule that's publicly available5. Why not go in guns blazing?-the people who hired the mercs don't want to be caught, and made it look like an accident. They don't want to be found out.-if terrorists did it, they would want it to be as blatant as possible for maximum publicity since, Rin, the face of the group being assassinated would send a message to any of our associates (though there are much better acts of terror that send messages). The person who made the hit did not want publicity, and covered it up with "an accident".OR, an unknown enemy is doing a false-flag operation to divert our attention from a real threat.
>>32047488It's Jack isn't it?
>>32047907I seriously doubt that it would be the Worker's Union. It doesn't coalesce with their goals
>>32047553Whoops, I forgot to update that.>>32047488"All right, I'll take the call." You say. "Are they on hold?""Yes, please hurry." Jenner says.You head over to your office and activate your phone. You see the display screen show a middle aged, bespectacled man. In the corner, you can see the Neucom logo prominently displayed."Ah, you must the Producer! I am Dr. Simon Cohen, head of Neucom Incorporated Research and Development! I do apologize for calling so early in the morning!""Oh, it's no bother." You respond, stiffening up a bit. "What is this about?""Ah, well, we first would like to express our gratitude for pointing out the 'issues' with our aircraft at the airshow yesterday.It helped us avoid a possibly catastrophic PR disaster!""Well, lives were at risk." You nod, "Yes, yes, of course." Dr. Cohen nods. "But also, secondly, it seems you've caught the attention of some of our executives. Our rival, General Resources, has recently acquired an entertainment company to improve their image, and my superiors believe that they need to make a matching move. In fact, your company is up for consideration for sponsorship!"(cont)
>>32048011"I'm honored." You smile. "But, I would have to wonder why an R&D scientist would be giving me this news.""Ah... well, this is where the hard part comes in." Dr. Cohen sighs. "My superiors also want a 'demonstration' of your idols' skills, to see if you have what it takes. Recently, some very VERY valuable proprietary software was stolen from us. If your idols were to recover the stolen property, well, I believe you'll have a new sponsor. Unfortunately, I cannot say any more, unless you accept our offer.""Well, what would this sponsorship entail?" You ask."In addition to providing you with extra funds, you would gain access to Neucom's item inventory, return for advertising Neucom products."Well, picking up a new sponsor certainly was tempting, but then again, you weren't too sure about their entry requirements...>You have a deal.>Sorry, no deal.>Let me think about it.>Other
>>32048245>>You have a deal.>As long as they do not interfere with our other sponsors

>>32048245>>32048286What he said
>>32048245>You have a deal.Doesn't sound like a problem. The more sponsors we get, the better.
>>32048245>You have a deal.>"...Maybe I'm behind the curve, but wouldn't they simply be able to copy any stolen data nearly instantly? It must be encrypted harder than a cyber-penis in a new age porno.">Speculation intensifies
>>32048245>>You have a deal.
>>32048245this is acceptable.>>32048286
>>32048286Pretty much this.
>>32048245Merc, How much percentage did it increase by?>>32048286Also this
>>32048245"That sounds acceptable." You nod. "Though I have to warn you, we already have a couple of sponsors, so i don't want any conflicts or anything.""Are any of them General Resources?" Dr. Cohen asks."No.""Then we should have no problem!" Dr. Cohen chuckles. "We already have an idea of who stole our property and where they are hiding. All you need to do is retrieve our property. However, I recommend this be done soon, as every minute that passes is another minute they can use to decrypt or sell our data.""How soon are we talking about here?" You ask."By tonight. If you do not make a move, then our own security forces will and the deal will be canceled.""Got it." You nod. "Good! We will forward you all the relevant data. That should conclude things for now, unless there's anything else you'd like to ask?Now that you think about it, Neucom no doubt had some good investigators and connections. Maybe they could help you with your assassin problem?>Ask Neucom for a favor.>Nah, you can handle this yourself.>Other
>>32048573>>Ask Neucom for a favor.What could go wrong?
>>32048573>Ask Neucom for a favor.Anything that could help on whoever was trying to murder our idols.
>>32048573>Ask Neucom for a favor.We help, they help, everyone gets helped and makes a ton of money.Incidentally, how's P-San's salary and bank account looking? When do we get to go real estate shopping with Jenner?
>>32048245I'd like to verify this with someone higher up. Seems suspicious, no, a r& d scientist giving us this king of offer?
>>32048666not really? Management is management is management.he's probably mid to senior level under their CTO.
>>32048573>Nah, you can handle this yourself.
>>32048573>Ask Neucom for a favor.
>>32048573>Ask Neucom for a favor.We're a Neucom investment now.
>>32048573>>>Ask Neucom for a favor.See if we can phrase it in such a way to convince Neucom that they stand to benefit from uncovering any leads. It was their equipment that was being sabotaged, after all.
>>32048734We're not a nuecom investment until they have something invested, which is not until after we do this thing for them.Clover is a Nuecom project.
>>32048766We could spin it as a possible attempt by General Resources; after all, GR just got themselves an idol company, and knocking out a rival idol AND messing up Neucom would be a win-win in GR's favor.
>>32048573"Actually, Doctor, we've been trying to run down leads on who might have tried to crash our event, but we're sort of turning up dry...""And you want to see how our own investigation is going?" Dr. Cohen chuckles. "I can certainly help you on that end, provided you help us.""Good to know."With that, Dr. Cohen gives his farewell and the screen winks out.Well, it looks like you got a job.>Go to the data center to review the data Neucom sent you. >Go check the shop.>Go check on your idols.>Other

>>32048839>Go to the data center to review the data Neucom sent you.Let's check this out so we know what to buy and how to prepare our idolsAlso, did anyone notice that in our last mission, an idol group attempted a targeted assassination, which is supposed to be a big nono in the idol world?
>>32048949She did that last mission
>>32048839>Go to the data center to review the data Neucom sent you. Lets see how our shut in is, and I can bet someone kicked her door down again.
>>32048839>Go check on your idols.
>>32048956Someone staged an accident, which is pretty different from rolling into a busy mall and opening fire.Accidents are ok, black vans aren't.
>>32048839You head to the data center to pay a visit to your resident hacker/shut in. "Hey, Himawari, any luck with those database searches?" You ask."Nothing yet. Seems like they did a good job covering their tracks." Himawari sighs. "Also, we got a huge data package from Neucom. I already scanned it. Looks clean.""Good, open it up then.""Okay." Himawari yawns and hits a key.The main screen in front of you suddenly blossoms up to show various files and documents you can access. You pore over everything. Every picture, every document, ever last line of code.Apparently, the thieves were a bunch of freelance mercs. Their group was estimated to be six strong, and they were good at what they did. Unlike most of the enemies you were facing up til now, these weren't just a bunch of poorly trained thugs. They were experienced operators. However, they were still thieves, and the intel noted that they'd rather direct fights if they could. They were mostly only equipped with small arms, but had a multitude of gadgets that could help them sneak around, like optic camo and IR smoke grenades. Looking at Neucom's further notes, you find that your employers don't particularly care of the thieves were taken dead or alive. (cont)
>>32049345Next was their safehouse, located in an abandoned apartment complex in District Six. No civilians around, so you wouldn't have to worry about collateral damage or cops interfering. However, that meant their place was well fortified. There were cameras and sensors all around the perimeter, reinforced security doors and windows to discourage forced entry, and no doubt hidden escape routes Neucom's recon teams didn't account for. Finally, there was the stolen property itself. Unfortunately, Neucom didn't seem willing to talk about it. All they mentioned was that it was stored on a highly encrypted disk and that it was your utmost priority to recover it intact. "Himawari, do you think we can try and get more intel on those mercs?" You ask."We could." She nods. "It's risky, though. If they're smart, they'd have sniffer programs in place to warn them if somebody's trying to search hem out. I mean, I'm pretty sure I can avoid them if it's just the off the shelf junk, but you can never be too sure...>Check the shop.>Check on your idols.>Try to get more info on the mercs.>Other

>>32049367"Do it, Himawari. We need all the intel we need.""Okay..." Himawari nods and she starts furiously tapping away at keys.>roll 1d20
>>32049456I hated these two so god damn much.
>>32049367>Try to get more info on the mercs.Intel we need.And I think we really need a heavy setup for this mission. Maybe ask our engineer for one shot railguns for beaching the initial defenses?Also, smoke grenades and stuff.
Rolled 15>>32049648>>32049653>>32049654No crit fails and decent rolls.Thats not so bad.
>>32049648Himawari manages to glean a bit more data about the mercs. Apparently, they don't really have an official name, but they're definitely linked to a lot of high profile heists, particularly targeted at megacorps' valuable assets. They were also a very tightly knit group who would generally refuse to leave any one of their number behind. You guess these were the types of thieves who believed in honor among themselves.It also means a possible thing you can use against them."Good job, Himawari.""Don't mention it." Himawari says sleepily.>Go check the shop.>Better go organize your idols.>Other

Finally caught up on the previous threads, and the idea of Producer and Cole switching bodies is actually holding up well for some reason. I mean all the other suggestions to who Producer switches with are fine, but they don't seem to live as long or have an impact as this one. I swear that it has to be their character dynamic that makes this idea stick.Anyways, if P-san does switch bodies with Cole, the first thing he should do is to look at himself in front of the mirror, while trying on different outfits like super girly, cat ears and tail, or more lewd things like fancy, lacy lingerie like a camisole, maid, and maybe swimwear if Cole doesn't kill us later.
>>32049967keep your magical realm to yourself.

>>32050020I had a more darker dream. I think it was that chicken stromboni and reading 5 people you meet in heaven.
>>32050055That is kind of disgusting, Producer does not lewd his idols, he will lewd Jenner or Lillith
>>32050055>>32050267Or have Cole as producer lewd Jenner...
You know, if MGH Quest lasted one more thread, that would have been one hell of a Mother's Day.
>>32050267>Jenner or LillithOr?
>>32050267>LillithYeah, that'll happen.
>>32049811"Jenner." You say in your. "Get the combat idols organized and send them down to the armory. We're getting ready for a mission.""How soon?" Jenner asks."Tonight. We can pick up another sponsor if we can pull this off." You say."Got it. I'll summon them right away."You head downstairs just as Rochelle, Cole, Julie, Melissa, and Morgan come down to meet you, obviously a bit confused at being called down on such short notice."What's the emergency?" Cole yawns. "I thought we didn't have any jobs today.""Change of plans, girls." You say, transmitting the mission data to all of them. "We've got a retrieval job. Grab the item and get out.""What about the perps?" Julie asks."Fighting them is not a priority, but otherwise, you can go nuts on them." You say. "But remember, our mission is to recover the disk they stole, INTACT. Is that clear, Cole?""Why the hell are you singling me out!?!" Cole sputters."I know how quick you are to use your powers. I don't want you to accidentally fry it or anything.""F-fine." Cole grunts."How dangerous is this going to be?" Melissa asks."They guys aren't cheap thugs or dime store labor. They're mercs. The real deal." You say grimly. "So expect them to well armed, with the experience and training to put those weapons to good use.""Okay, so what's our plan of entry?" Rochelle asks as she looks at the map. "From the looks of it, it's going to be a lot of trouble getting in."(cont)
>>32050325Lilith kinda views us as hopeless.
>>32050334"What are options, Rochelle?" You ask."Well..." Rochelle narrows her eyes. "We can do it the simple way and just ram the SUV through the front doors. Quick and simple, but then they'd know we're there. We can try to go in quietly, but we'd have to dodge all their electronic security, which can be a bit tricky, especially if they supplement it with actual patrols. That's all I can come up with, unless we do more recon of the sight."That's risky, considering that there's nobody else around. If we're spotted, they'll know something is up." Melissa warns."Well, I can set up ahead of time to cover you all, just in case." Morgan says. >We'll go in loud.>We'll go in quiet.>Let's recon the area more, first.>Other

Do you anons think that the we will ever get to the point where we can ask the Tombs girls what their life was like growing up, or what their earliest memories were?
>>32050362>>We'll go in loud.

>>32050362>Let's recon the area more, first.Let's see what we're up against.
>>32050390I really don't think we have enough personnel for such things. It's already 6v6 counting wolf. spiting up our force is just going to weaken it too much. Also, these guys are pros not trash. Going with anything less than max force will end badly.
>>32050512that should be splitting
Can't we have Cole jam their equipment? like their camera and stuff?
>>32050584She can only really jam wireless comms, so maybe she can make the cameras malfunction if she zaps them outright.
Rolled 16>>32050643roll for that, 3 nat 20s. Thieves flee the building thinking that God Himself is fucking tired of their bullshit and is going to fry them alive with lighting from on High.
>>32050512That is a valid point, if our mission was to eliminate them. But it's not, it's to go, in get something and bug out. Winning a direct fire fight against them will be tough, no doubt. Having a separate element go in while others distract is more ideal. But who said we had to go into a direct fire fight? Who said we had to fight fair? So said we actually had to start shooting? A distraction can be anything, as long as we grab their attention and hold it long enough then we succeed in doing so.
>>32050746How about a pizza guy showing up to their doorstep?
>>32050362"All right, all of you, get geared up. I'll come up with a plan of action alter." You say.All your girls nod and head over to the armor to put on their armor and assemble their weapons. Meanwhile, you boot up Marc's purchase catalog to see if you there were any last minute purchases you could get.http://pastebin.com/b0e1rJjvYou have $11,900 in your treasury.>Do you buy anything?

>>32050794AUTOMATED GUN TURRET - 1000 -SUVCOMBAT SHIELD - 1000 - Julie (Give Combat Shield to Melissa) M55B BATTLE RIFLE - 1000 Rochelle (Give M55 Assault Rifle to Julie)CARAPACE ARMOR - 1000 (Melissa)-4000 total
>>32050794getting Carapace armor for our Idols is the best thing so far. it'll reduce their chances of dieing alright.
>>32050794Think we'll get any recoilless guns?
Rolled 1>>32050869and hundred upon hundreds of Maxipads and Tampons, along with thousands of empty cardboard boxes. And we call news agencies and tell them that shit is going down here, and while the thieves are desperately trying to figure out what the actual fuck is going on, we sneak in, grab the intel, and skedaddle.
>>32050936>(Give Combat Shield to Melissa) Melissa will forever be known for decapitating a cyborg by throwing the shield like a discus with her augmented arm.
>>32050971So a mix of Captain America and the Winter Soldier?
Rolled 13>>32050936The reason why only Julie has carapace is because no one else have heavy armour proficiency.And Rochelle still needs full auto capability.
>>32050936Only thing I would support is the carapace armor. That's it.Everything else is a no. We don't need two fucking combat shields.
>>32050794>>32050936This, but take off the sights from the SMG and put it into the battle rifle.
>>32050794Carapace Armor is good.
Rolled 5>>32050794Merc, can the automated Gun Turret be fixed and removed at will?On a per mission basis?
>>32050995Yes it can.>>32050936So are people fine with this, or are there objections?
>>32050979I see, but I rather give Melissa heavy armor since she's a close combat fighter.I think Rochelle needs the heavy round but I'm willing to compromise on that>>32050984Why? she is a close combat fighter, some defense is needed and it's a hand me down, if Julie gets the new shield
Rolled 8>>32051024Merc, just to double check, can any of our idols other than Julie wear carapace?
>>32050936Rochelle is better off with the AR than a EBR.Melissa doesn't have, from what I recall, heavy armor training it be a waste to give it to her.We have no need for two shields. The gun turret is meh. And I would only support if the thing can be removed after missions.
>>32051024Yes, Replace the sights off the SMG though
>>32051024I am not fine with it.I'm only supporting the Gun turret that's it.
>>32051041If they don't have heavy armor proficiency, then they'll get weighed down if they wear heavier armor.
>>32051044It doesn't say its heavier though so it's fine. How so? It's a heavier round.And Julie and Cole have Assault Rifles to make up the Volume of fire, not including the Machine Gun Mellisa is using>>32051024Yes
>>32051089Is the Carapace Armor, have the heavy designation? >>32051024If notYes
Rolled 7>>32051024Except the carapace then. Our girls need to be able to move fast.I'd like to see which rifle Rochelle would prefer, she doesnt have marksmanship training after all.
>>32051089Can we train them to wear them properly if they don't have that skill, or is that not an option. AFTER this mission of course.
>>32050835Throwing 1 random civvi ain't really gonna do much.>>32050888Stig in an armored vehicle would be a great distraction. Have him and a couple of the idols for the loud approach just crash in through the building, flash bangs, tear gas, smoke grenades, and sensor grenades. Just do as much damage and keep them occupied.While the other girls quickly get in grab the package and get out.
>>32051093>it's a heavy round there for it makes it better!>semiautomatic onlyThe AR is better for because of the full auto. She's not the marksmen here.
Rolled 12>>32051118Obviously merc means that the carapace has heavy armour designation.
>>32051131Then we switch Morgan and Rochelle's then
>>32051024>YesYeah, I am fine with it.
>>32051144Morgan already has one and a full fledged sniper rifle.
>>32051024>>32051137If that's the case, Give the M55B Battle Rifle to Morgan and give her M70 to Rochelle.and forsake the caparace armor
Rolled 10>>32051144Rochelle still doesnt have marksman training.Giving her a new gun type on the cusp of an important mission without giving her time to train on it is asking for a disaster.
>>32051162To add, it's a waste of money to buy this. It's not needed.
>>32051162No she has the M70 Battle rifle the one with the three round burst.
>>32051190For fuck sakes. What I meant is she already has a Marksmen weapon and doesn't need to be switched out for something else.
>>32051024Okay, we can't seem to settle any consensus on what to purchase, so we're going to skip this to keep things going.Writing next post.

>>32051326You decide that now is not the time for fancy or complicated plans. You're just going to handle this like you did in your army days. With great amounts of speed and violence. It worked for you in Kurdistan, and it should work for you here."All right, girls, we're going in loud." You announce. "Stig will knock a hole through the front door to cause a distraction, and we'll take advantage of that it bust into their safehouse and retrieve the target.""So how are we going to split up duties?" Rochelle asks. "At a minimum, we're going to need two teams for this."Hm, she was right. There had to be a team to distract the mercs, and another team to actually breach their hideout.>How do you divy up your idols?>Let Rochelle organize teams.>Other

>>32051596>>Let Rochelle organize teams.
>>32051632If Morgan is going in with a team, she does not need to bring her teleconference. But if she is going to be a dedicated sniper, she needs that and an elevated area to snipe.
>>32051791She said she might set up before hand from a distance.She could cover exits and taser round any retreating enemy.
>>32051596"How about you organize the teams?" You grin."W-what? Me?" Rochelle blinks."That's part of the job of being the team leader." You nod. "Use your own discretion.""Well, um." Rochelle puts a hand up her chin. "Okay, let's see.... the distraction team's going to be taking the brunt of the attention, so Cole and Julie should be up front. Me, Melissa, and K-Zwolf will be the infiltration team, and Morgan should post up somewhere high so she can provide overwatch. How's that?""Sounds good." You nod. "You all heard her, right?""Right!" The other girls affirm. "Good job Rochelle." You smile as you pat her on the head."T-thanks sir." Rochelle blushes and nods at the praise."Okay! Everybody's got their assignments! Let's get packed up and roll out!"Stig powers up the SUV and you and the idols all pile in."You know where to go, right?" You ask Stig.Stig nods and guns the engine, and the SUV roars out of the garage.It's still midday by the time your SUV arrives at the operation zone. Stig is careful to park the vehicle out of sight of the mercs' hideout, in a small, abandoned parking garage that you're using as a temporary staging point. Your idols are all hanging out in the shade, messing around and checking their weapons for the 100th time. You look at the sun and then at your watch. You could attack now while it was still daylight, and your idols could see well. On the other hand, the mercs would be able to see you, too. You could wait till night time, where you're sure your idols would have the advantage due to their various sensing tech and abilities. However, you fear that if you wait too long, the mercs might do something unexpected and mess up your plans.>Attack now while you have the chance.>Wait until nightfall.>Other

>>32051930>>Attack now while you have the chance.They will never expect a daylight raid
>>32051930Perhaps an attack at sunset would be in order. The mercs might be busy having dinner at that time.
>>32051930>Attack now while you have the chance.
Surely they can't stay holed up indefinitely. They have to receive supplies at some point, right? Could we attack then?
>>32052125It's a time sensitive mission
>>32051930"All right, girls, we have no time to waste." You say. "We're going in right now.""Really?" Rochelle gasps."Yeah. No telling what would happen if we wait. Cole, Julie, load up in the SUV. Stig, you should know what to do."Stig nods and gives the thumbs up."Rochelle, you'll lead your team around the back. Morgan, I trust you know where you can best set up?""Da." Morgan nods. "Just give me five minutes.""Go." You say. As your idols get into position, you head to the top floor of the parking garage, where you have a good view of the surrounding area. While you wanted nothing more than to join in on the assault, your job was to lead coordinate the girls, and you couldn't do it effectively in the midst of combat. You continually check your Harbinger feeds to track the progress of your idols. Stig keeps the SUV idling just around a corner from the building. Rochelle leads her small fireteam up to the chain link separating them from the hideout before dropping down to take cover in the tall grass. Morgan takes up position atop an old water tower."All right, Stig, its' all on you." You say.Even from where you are, you can hear the SUV's engines roar and Stig powers the vehicle forward.>roll 1d20

>>32052293Yeah, but look at our past threads. Our average dice roll outcome has decreased.
>>32052177The SUV charges forward, blowing through the front gate of the chain link fence. However, before the SUV can even reach the front of the building, there's a large explosion and the front of the SUV is lifted into the air before dropping back down, rocking the entire vehicle. It takes you a brief second to realize the bastards actually mined the entrance. The SUV was effectively out of commission. You quickly check Stig, Cole, and Julie's vitals, and sigh in relief as they're all still in the green. Immediately, the SUV is riddled with bullets as two mercs emerge on the second floor of the building and start firing wildly. You see Cole and Julie crawl out of the SUV and take cover on the opposite side, while Stig takes control of the auto turret and and starts to return fire. "What happened?" Rochelle asks. "We heard an explosion-">It's nothing. Proceed as planned.>Cole and Julie are pinned down. You need to come assist.>Other

>>32052370"Cole and Julie are engaging the enemy. Proceed as planned but expect resistance." You say."Roger that." Rochelle then motions to Melissa, who extends her hidden armblade and slices an opening in the fence. K-Zwolf moves in first, quickly scanning for possible threats or traps. Rochelle and Melissa follow him in, where they then proceed to try and breach the back door.Meanwhile, Cole and Julie are still pinned down. There are three mercs now engaging, showering the SUV with automatic fire. Stig does his best with the .50 cal turret, but he can't suppress all three mercs at once."Some help would be nice here!" Cole yells."I think I have a shot, sir." Morgan says. "I just need the all clear.">Hold your fire. You're our trump card.>Engage at will.>Other

>>32052774It's either Stig's counter attack or the Merc's ability to dodge, either way we're good
>>32052774You see one of the mercs' chests literally explode and he's thrown backwards into the wall behind him. However, you see that apparently he was wearing some kind of heavy armor, as he wasn't blown into ludicrous gibs. But he was definitely out of commission. The other two mercs, realizing that there was sniper present, grab their fallen comrade and beat a hasty retreat inside.This left Cole and Julie free to move out. They head for the front door to check it.Meanwhile, you check in on Rochelle's team. With one swift kick, Melissa's augmetic leg crumples the door like paper and the two girls and cyberhound enter."Looks clear." Rochelle says."Yeah, I don't see anybody either." Melissa adds."NO HOSTILES DETECTED.""Cole?" You ask."Yeah, I sense six people on the second floor."

"Can you overload the building's electronics?"What, the whole building?" Cole asks."Yes!""Ah, um, I never tried something that big before...">Nevermind then.>Do it, now!>Other
>>32053029Their positions are already known. They're playing defense, and they're probably smart enough to assume that we have sensor equipment.Not to mention that once they start firing that's basically that.As for talking, it's pretty easy to selectively dampen or cancel out high dBs (ie, gunshots) and let low dBs (talking) through. That technology exists already.

>>32054551>>32054560>>32054562So If reading this right...>14, 12, 14, 13?
>>32054613Well, at least it's not that bad.

Rolled 2, 10, 10, 20 = 42>>32054680Why four... only 3 should have been left...Is there someone else we've not accounted for?
>>32054680With quick, trained efficiency, both Rochelle and Julie return fire, stitching one of the mercs in a crossfire. Melissa socks the second merc with her augmetic fist, sending him spinning, while K-Zwolf pounces and subdues the last one. The mercs were now all either dead, wounded, or incapacitated. Rochelle takes a deep breath as she surveys the situation. "Melissa, see to Julie. Make sure her wound isn't serious." She says. "Morgan, keep an eye out for any unexpected company..""Roger!"Rochelle then gazes at the scattered mercs. Only one seemed to be in any condition to talk, and he was still pinned under K-Zwolf, which looks at him menacingly.You see Rochelle slowly walk towards him.>Let Rochelle handle this.>Maybe you should handle this.>Other
>>32054750>>Maybe you should handle this.
Rolled 11, 12 = 23>>32054750>>Let Rochelle handle this.
>>32054750>Let Rochelle handle this.
>>32054750>>Maybe you should handle this.I hope Rochelle isn't using her emotions in this due to Rin being almost killed.
>>32054750>Maybe you should handle this.
>>32054750>>OtherSupervise Rochelle's interrogation.
Rolled 15, 20, 16, 10 = 61>>32054750>>Let Rochelle handle this.
>>32054750>Let Rochelle handle this.Rochelle has to be independent, guys. Let her handle this.
>>32054750>Let Rochelle handle this.Watch for now. If she starts to go far, be that hook in the back of mind and pull her back.
>>32054784The question is: Is she going to let her emotions cloud her judgment due to her best friend almost being assassinated.
>>32054808Their not responsible for that, they almost got Julie killed though
>>32054750>Let Rochelle handle this.Spread your wings or whatever.
>>32054831To be fair, in every combat op, their lives are always at risk. This should be no different, but they tried to kill Rin in the most gruesome way possible via jet engine, and she isn't even a combat idol.
>>32054808Assassinations are politically motivated and/or target officials of state, etc, you want "murdered."Hoping she goes full Jack Bauer on some fools.
>>32054852Again those were not the one that did it.It was another group presumably Idols
>>32054750While you're tempted to intervene, you decide to stop at the last moment. You want to see how Rochelle would handle an emotionally charged moment like seeing a fellow squadmate get shot. Lord knows, you got pretty damn pissed the first time it happened in front of you, but the Major was always there to kick your ass if you ever went out of line. You just hope Rochelle wouldn't make the same mistake."Hey, you, or what my friend you shot here would call you, thieving scum." Rochelle stands over the downed merc. "Where's the disk?""I don't know what-""K-Zwolf. Give him the claw."K-Zwolf's built in claws extend and dig into the merc's flesh, causing him to grunt in pain."Look here. Your buddies here are either dead or dying. One of my own friends got shot. It's been a VERY LONG FUCKING day for the both of us, so let's just cut straight to the point and tell me where the disk is. I don't particularly care what happens to you or your friends as long as I get it.""I-It's in the safe! Right over there!" The merc croaks, craning his head to the back of the room. "The combination is 4462!""K-Zwolf. Scan for traps.""NO TRAPS DETECTED."Rochelle calmly walks over to the safe and punches in the code. It beeps for a brief second before finally opening, revealing a small, square device about the size of a Rubik's Cube. You look a the comparison photo and realize that's the thing you were looking for."Hm, looks like you weren't lying. Guess I don't have to waste a bullet." Rochelle says. "Sir, we got the package. What do you want to do with these guys?">Let's get them some medical attention.>Just leave them here. They're no concern of ours anymore.>Call in Neucom and let them sort things out.>We can't have any witnesses now, can we?>Other
>>32054998>Call in Neucom and let them sort things out.
>>32054998>Let's get them some medical attention.>Call in Neucom and let them sort things out.Just get them stabalized
>>32055019They're still people who did what they were paid for in the end and defended themselves, and we're not monsters...well at least total monsters.
>>32054998>>Let's get them some medical attention.
>>32054998>Call in Neucom and let them sort things out.We're in the sticks, largely off the grid. All of 'em are KO'd. We got time, let's see if Nuecom needs some human tissue samples.
Rolled 3, 16, 8, 20 = 47>>32054998>>Let's get them some medical attention.Human rights and all that
>>32054998>Call in Neucom and let them sort things out.>Let's get them some medical attention.They ought to have at least some rudimentary first aid supplies lying around. While we're stabilizing them, we can also call Neucom to see what protocol for this is. If they're keeping their hands off, call in an ambulance and leave.
>>32054998>Call in Neucom and let them sort things out.>Let's get them some medical attention.Key word is some. Enough for them to not die but still be in pain.
>>32054998>>Let's get them some medical attention.>OtherRochelle did good
So do we have a combat idol who has medical training? If not, who should we train, or should we look for another Combat Idol?
>>32054998>Call in Neucom and let them sort things out.>>We can't have any witnesses now, can we?
>>32055085Fucking browser, stop pulling this shit on me
>>32055070honestly we still need a Combat Engineer, Field Medic, and another Rifle(wo)man. That would fill out the squad fully. And give us some more flexibility.
>>32055070Maybe? We have a doctor on call and Rochelle is a all rounder, Julie herself grew up in the tombs so they might know some first aid until we get her to our doctor. She might not be able to train or perform for a bit. Maybe we can get her a gig just to pose as a cop or something
I hope Cole's alright. It's a shame we can't charge her like a battery.
>>32055188You say that like we can't. I don't think we've ever tried.Stiggy can grab the battery outta the SUV. It got toasted anyways.
Rolled 1, 17, 2, 4 = 24>>32055200I hope Bain can get the insurance on that SUV
>>32054998"I'll call in Neucom and tell them the job is done." You say. "Make sure you give them proper medical attention, too. At least enough to keep them alive.""Yes sir." Rochelle sighs."And how is Julie doing?" You ask."Can't you tell from her vitals?""Yes, but I want to hear it from you.""Julie, how are you feeling?" Rochelle turns to her friend."Like I said, just a scratch." Julie grins before wincing in pain."Yeah, I don't call a bullet nicking one of your ribs and nearly punching a lung 'just a scratch.'" Melissa sighs. "I'm just gonna pack the wound with biofoam and let the Doc worry about it.""So, Julie is fine." Rochelle reports. "Good." You nod. "Good job, girls. I know it was a tough mission on short notice, but you all pulled through. "Hmph." Rochelle grunts as she looks at the cube. "All this trouble for this little thing. Wonder what's in it that's so important?""Careful, Rochelle, curiosity is not a healthy trait when it comes to megacorps." You warn."Yeah, well, it's not like I know how to decrypt this thing." Rochelle takes a closer look at the cube. You can see the Neucom logo, as well as the letters "NEMO" displayed on it."Well, um, maybe I can try..." Himawari interjects over the comms.>WHAT'S IN THE BOX>Oh hell no. This is way above our pay grade.>Other

>>32055276Or maybe a girl whose mind got uploaded into the box...
>>32055276All the more reason to stay the hell away from it.
>>32055287Whatever you do, don't connect it to an internet connection or any systems. Hell, make that anything electronic.God knows what would happen if we upload it into a human.
>>32055223>Oh hell no. This is way above our pay grade.Curiosity killed the cat.
>>32055287As in "EXAM SYSTEM. STANDBY"?...hey, wait, wasn't the scientist-techie from Valkyria Mercs Quest 2 also named Nemo?
>>32055393He's a big fan of waste not want not.
>>32055223"Oh, hell no. This is way above our pay grade." You grunt. "Don't even think about it.""Awwww, okay." Himawari sighs."Rochelle, secure that cube and do not let ANYBODY touch it.""Roger that."Neucom security forces arrive barely five minutes later, their VTOLs circling the area like angry buzzards. You stand out front as one of the VTOLs touches down, and you see Dr. Cohen and a pair of Neucom private soldiers hop out. "Ah! Producer! Excellent job!" Dr. Cohen says happily ."Can I see it?""Here you go." You say, holding out the cube for Dr. Cohen to take. He snatches it from your hand, and then runs a scanner over it."Well, Doctor? Is it the real deal?" You suited man says from the interior of the VTOL."Yes, it's my NEMO, all right!" Dr. Cohen nods furiously. "I almost thought I lost him forever!">"Him?">Just keep quiet.>Other
>>32055457>Just keep quiet.
>>32055457>"I don't even. Should we kill them?"

>>32055457>Just keep quiet.We talked about this people.
>>32055457>>"Him?"We're recovered the objectivre.We can ask a few questions and if they dont want to reply, everythings still fine. Its not like hacking into their box.
>>32055457>OtherAsk him what to do with the Merc, We rather not kill them in cold blood if possible
We're there any characters with the name Cohen in sci-fi? I swear I heard the name before...
>>32055549Sander Cohen, nutcase from Bioshock.
>>32055549Simon Cohen is an Ace Combat 3: Electrosphere character. He created NEMO.
>>32055581At least let me get my image off first. Man...There's no paranoia in this quest.
>>32055607Lots of ace combat fans here.Including those who imported yhe jp version of 3.
>>32055635I don't know if that's quite related, but I guess Cohen is pretty tame to Steinman.Now that would be distressing.
>>32055607Never played Bioshock, so I wouldn't know about Sander.
>>32055457>>Just keep quiet.Let's not get teh cat killed.
>>32055675I would recommend playing the first. It's nice.
>>32055684Yeah, or else Loki would haunt us in our sleep.
>>32055699Eh, I'd say that the second has better gameplay.
>>32055457You just keep quiet. You know better than to speak when not spoken to. Dr. Cohen quickly secures the cube in an armored case, which the two guards carry off back to the VTOL."So, what are you going to do with the mercs?" You ask."Oh, those thieves? Well, we'll probably keep them alive for a while. We have to know who hired them, after all. While we may have a good idea already, it can't hurt to make sure!""Uh huh." You nod. You knew how these things went down. "And I see you had a few difficulties." Dr. Cohen points to your wrecked SUV."Ah, yeah, there were a few unforeseen complications." You sigh. "But no serious casualties.""Ah, that's good, that's good." Dr. Cohen nods. Well, in addition to our sponsorship, we'll compensate your for the repair or replacement of your SUV!""Mind giving us a ride home, too?""Of course!" Dr. Cohen chuckles.And so that's how you, Stig, and your idols rode back to the office in style. Dr. Cohen drops you off at your office, and promises all the relevant paperwork and "other data" you asked for would be sent to you shortly. Hopefully it would help you out in your investigations.Meanwhile, Julie and Cole are sent to the infirmary. Julie's wounds were quickly treated, and she was expected to make a full recover in a day or two. Cole was just slightly exhausted, and just needed to eat some more salty foods to recharge her batteries. Nothing too serious, thankfully."Long day?" Jenner asks as you slump down in your chair."Unbelievably." You nod. "Anything happen?""Nothing major." Jenner shakes her head. "Got a huge file Neucom's legal department a few minutes ago... but I think I'll handle that in morning.""Good call." You crane your head back. "It's not going to get any easier, is it?""Of course not, Producer.">And that's it for tonight! As always, next thread is next week! Don't forget Gundam Build Fighters on Friday!>Also, I'm running a SW89-based oneshot on Sunday! Don't miss it!
>>32055684Honestly. This is different from cracking open the box in secret.Not sure why you guys are so scared. Since we're asking them directly, the worst they couls do is say its classified.
>>32055737Thanks for the run, Merc! Looking forward to tomorrow's quest!>>32055699>>32055717I'm persuaded. I'll get both.
>>32055737I still hope we can claim insurance on that SUV.
>>32055765Double dipping is illegal, anon, prepare to get terminate by GEICO's Combat Idols
>>32055744It's not fear, I just have no desire to know.Knowing never makes it better.
Hopefully we can get more Star Power next time.
>>32055737Thank Merc, Also Merc what was the percentage increase from last thread?Also when are we going to have a stats increase, soon?
>>32055765We never took out insurance on it.
>>32055737We could have asked about "him" but I'm overall pretty happy, thanks for running Merc.
>>32055737Great thread, Merc. It was a bumpy ride, but it was worthwhile.
>>32055765Mines aren't covered under our policy.>>32055778Terrifying.
>>32055781This, I'm happier not knowing.
>>32055737Will we get any stat increase soon for some of our idols?
