In addition to increased monetary support, an extra $1000 for every job completed, what they also promised was access to typically off the market goods exclusively reserved for the military and PMCs. It was all very exciting stuff.There was also the intel they provided on their investigation over the sabotage attempt at the airshow. You already gave it to Jenner and Himawari to analyze, but you haven't gotten an update from them yet.Also, Julie and Cole were slightly wounded during the last op. Rochelle for the most part seemed to handle it well, but you should probably make sure. Plus, you want to see how Morgan is fitting in with the other girls.>Check the shop.>Check the intel.>Check in on your idols.>Other
>>32190686>Check in on your idols.
>>32190686>>Check the intel.Info first
>>32190686>Check in on your idolsGotta make sure the girls are ok
>>32190686>>Check in on your idols.We also need to check on Rin, since we never gotten around to asking her how she's been
>>32190686>Check the intel.Once we have it, then we know how to approach our idols
>>32190686>Check in on your idols.make sure they went to the doctor.
>>32190686Idol then intel
>>32190686>[Other] - Stop by the Counselor to see how Rin's dealing with her Cuisanart close call.Then check on the girls.
>>32190826This is a good point. Although I would do Counselor, Intel, then girls.Also, can we just ping the shopping catalog, so we can start thinking of what to buy?
Just a hypothetical question here, but how would you feel if we had missions where we got Star Power, and a small reward, but at the cost of having it be a high difficulty?
>>32190863I rather do the intel last since whenever we do get intel, we immediately go for the mission right away.I want to consult our girls first and see how they are.
>>32190895Eh, doesn't have to be that way. We should be able to make time to socialize with our girls.
>>32190863>>32190895If we're going to see the counselor, we should do it before checking on the girls.I figure some advance intel on how the girls are feeling might help us avoid putting our foot too far down our throat when we do talk to them.A second perspective's always good anyway - an ex-idol might spot some things our jackbooted self could easily miss.
>>32190863Indeed.With the intel we'd at least have someyhing to present the girls if they ask for upsates.
So on stuff to do, training for heavy armour?So we can get them out of ballastics vests?
>>32190686You decide to go check up on your idols. Dr. Stiles had assured you that both Julie and Cole were absolutely fine and would make a full recovery shortly. However, you wanted to see for yourself. Plus, there were your other idols to worry about as well.When you reach the dorm level, you see that everything seems to be relatively normal. Rochelle is sitting at the table, looking rather sleepy, which is something you don't see often. She's usually very disciplined when it comes to sleep schedules. Cole, of course, is stuffing her face with hash browns and fried eggs. Must be nice to have a metabolism that required the intake of salty foods.Melissa and Julie were having yet another arm wrestling contest, which you guess was pretty normal. Morgan, meanwhile, was looking out the window and scribbling things down in her notebook.Finally, Niko looked to be watching TV while Rin was reading a booklet, no doubt memorizing the lines for her next song.>Which idol do you talk to first?
>>32190884Star power is a random thing. Best just leave it be. Besides, we need the money, PR, and XP the more reasonable missions give. Our crew is still rookies after all.
>>32191026Rochelle.Darling, did you not get a tood rest?
>>32191026Well, first address the elephant in the room. Rochelle first.
>>32190863Talking about buying, I think last mission show why getting rochelle a battle rifle without full auto would be a bad idea.She was still at the forefront, doing breech and clearing. She needs the full auto capability.
>>32191026Rochelle first something is wrongCole seems okay so we can ask her last.Julie should take it a little easy,Rin seems to keep herself busy.Morgan seems to be working on something
>>32191073Are you talking about Morgan, Rochelle already has an AR.
Been doing some thinking in the long term and came up with this: How would we handle Producer getting in a horrible accident (or ending up in a coma), and the only way to have him give orders, while his body is being treated, is to Direct Control K-Zwolf until he gets better?
>>32191026Rochelle.Everyone came back in one piece. Ya did good, kid.
>>32191026In this order i guess>Rochelle since something is clearly wrong>Julie/Melissa just to make sure Julie doesn't push herself. >Rin asking her how she's been.>Morgan, what she's writing>Niko or Col just general how are they doing.
>>32191101I just hope that the computer doesn't override Producer's control since K-Zwolf is programmed to follow Rochelle's orders... That has too much potential for perversion.>Sit! Roll over!
>>32191100Last thread there was a furrow over buying rochelle a DM rifle
>>32191026I say check with Rochelle first.
>>32191101I had a similar dream regarding such a incident though no K-Zwolf but rather who will take over and how will they react.Another dream or idea I had was a Christmas special.Though more likely a week after due to Idols having to work through the Holiday season. The producer is sitting on his desk mulling over ideas for a vacation or gits for his girls having made them work through the holiday season. Though having not a single idea of the teenage girl mind starts reading those magazine regarding how to deal with teenage girls or (daughters) without Lilith or Jenner looking.
>>32191101It would suck even more when he realizes he doesn't have a HUD, and finds out an idol volunteered to be Direct Controlled or at least have them take turns acting as a host. This also makes Producer cry due to the idol he's inhabiting writing a note to him about her choice and because he didn't ask for it.
>>32191213What next they get the idols to work at "Elizabeth's", the famous maid cafe chain?Also, who would look best in meido?
>>32191268>Cole as the tsundere maid
>>32191026You decide to check up on Rochelle first. Seeing her tired was not something you usually say, and that was more than a little concerning."Hey, Rochelle, are you okay?" You ask. "You look pretty tired.""Oh! Um," Rochelle bites her lip. "I uh, kinda stayed up all night last night.""What? Are you okay? Did that last mission affect you?""Oh no, it wasn't that!" Rochelle shakes her head. "I was just doing... stuff.""Stuff?""She was totally masturbating." Julie says with a mischievous grin."I WAS NOT!" Rochelle's face turns crimson red."She was playing online games with her boyfriend all night." Cole says, chewing on a hash brown."How did you know?!" Rochelle's voice goes from red to pale in a matter of seconds."Oh, I overheard Himawari complaining that you were hogging more bandwidth than usual. I might have accidentally mentioned accidentally frying her computer, so she did a bit of snooping for me.""You... YOU!" Rochelle points an accusing finger at Cole."Hey, I was just looking out for our fearless team leader." Cole shrugs and grins smugly."Fine." Rochelle takes a deep breathe and puts on a grin of her own. "How about YOUR boyfriend. Kaneda, was his name?""That is nooooooone of your business." Cole glowers.>Better intervene and put a stop to this.>Boyfriends? Do I need to go grab my shotgun?>Sit back and let this play out.>Other
>>32191268Actually that was an idea from the Valentine's special, where they try to make chocolate. All I got was the guy from the airshow showing up which causes Rochelle to spaz out.Also Cole discovers the wonders that you can actually make chocolate! Which causes a small riot and arrests from tunnel snakes in a despute to get Cole's handmade chocolate.
>>32191282>Cole's legion of fans floods the cafe.>/tg/ rolls dice to see how they behave.>20s. Fucking 20s.>Somehow, they are all perfect gentlemen, best customers the cafe has had in years.>The Cult of Cole continues to grow...
I was thinking about the arena where we got Melissa and what if we invested a bit in it? It could be a farm system for combat idols
>>32191302>>Boyfriends? Do I need to go grab my shotgun?Jokingly of course.
>>32191302>>Boyfriends? Do I need to go grab my shotgun?
>>32191302>>Better intervene and put a stop to this.Set down any boundaries we need them to be aware of as idols, but I don't see that having a boyfriend is something to prohibit.
>>32191302>Better intervene and put a stop to this."Hey hey HEY, play nice now. Also, keep this on the down low. We don't need this leaking out.Also, I need to talk to Himawari, need to make sure this information doesn't escape to the wild."
>>32191302>Boyfriends? Do I need to go grab my shotgun?"Do mind I have four of them for personal use."
>>32191328>dat 1>Cole fries all the customers.>Reviews say this is the most brutal maid cafe ever>Cole Cult grows
>>32191302>Boyfriends? Do I need to go grab my shotgun?Jokingly of course while planning where they live their habits etc....
>>32191302>Sit back and let this play out.>Otheronly intervene when things start to get out of hand. other wise the girls need to get this out of their systems.
>>32191302>Boyfriends? Do I need to go grab my shotgun?As a joke, but this is what we should say:>I'll turn a blind eye to certain things but only for as long as I am able. A part of this means that you turn a blind eye to each other's undisclosed activities.>>32191373There's really no stopping it.
>>32191302>Better intervene and put a stop to this.
>>32191373>Star Power that 1>Customer gets turned on by the abuse.
>>32191302...I guess this is where we decide how hard we're going to ride the damn 'pure idol' train.We should probably check with people who'd know better (Jenner, Lillith, heck, anybody at all) whether idols having boyfriends is going to kill their popularity.Christ, we trust these girls to handle themselves in combat, we can trust them to handle themselves with guys.
>>32191302>>Boyfriends? Do I need to go grab my shotgun?Jokingly
>>32191409The answer to that question is yes, but that doesn't mean we should force our idols to be asexual like some kind of overprotective parent.Just date smart and quietly and don't do anything stupid like getting knocked up.
>>32191302>Sit back and let this play out.This is personal business. Just tell them that as long that it doesn't affect their job, its fine. Also, keep it on the down low.
>>32191302>Sit back and let this play out.
>>32191409If any of them do get into relationships, god help whoever eventually makes one of them cry
>>32191302>Other"Do I have to have Dr.Styles start setting up Sex.Ed classes?"
>>32191463This one is great.
>>32191423We know it's yes in modern Japan, but this is Delta City. (Last I checked, it was built over the ruins of Detroit.)Modern Americans, however, LOVE watching their stars fall in and out of love.It could be either one, and it could even depend on the idol. That's why we need to check with someone who'd know, someone who's not a hired jackboots.
>>32191463Add this too.
>>32191490Idols aren't ordinary celebrities.
>>32191302"BOYFRIENDS? Does that mean I have to grab one of my shotguns?" You bellow.Both Rochelle and Cole blanch and stare at you, jaws open. Well, at least you stopped them arguing."I'm joking." You laugh. "But seriously, girls, I think you two should respect each others' privacy. If we want to be a smoothly running idol unit, you all have to be able to trust each other."Rochelle and Cole then just look at each other awkwardly."Um, sorry about nosing in our private shit." Cole mumbles."Yeah, sorry for putting you on the spot like that." Rochelle nods.>All right, that's good. Let's move on to another idol (specify)>Ask them a bit more about their "boyfriends".>Other
>>32191527>>Ask them a bit more about their "boyfriends".Ask them how they're doing with the two.
>>32191527>OtherDouble date.Just throwing that out there. No involvement from us. Just a double date.
>>32191527>Ask them a bit more about their "boyfriends"Just ask what their personalities are like.
>>32191527>>Ask them a bit more about their "boyfriends"
>>32191549K-Zwolf is the best chaperone.
>>32191527>Ask them a bit more about their "boyfriends".Just ask how are they like and what kind of stuff they plan on doing so we can plan on keeping it on the down low.
>>32191527>>All right, that's good. Let's move on to another idol (specify)And tell them to see Lil about advice for how to handle boyfriends as an idol.
>>32191527>Ask them a bit more about their "boyfriends".well, we know about Cole's boyfriend. Rochelle, we'll need to know about. at least be able to trace him to see if he's an agent of someone else as a way to get inside the company.
>>32191549Jokingly say, "But we can't guarantee other idol involvement"
>>32191583>>32191578>>32191573>>32191563>>32191553>>32191547Remember to take our own advice and respect their privacy.I'm not saying don't ask the question, but we can all agree it should be worded carefully and not be too inquisitive.
>>32191583Fluff, it's yellow from the video game Rochelle is very good at playing
>>32191600Indeed. Well in this case, we're asking openly and not snoopy so its not too bad.
>>32191519Eh. I think American 'idols' would have a good chance of being viewed more like teen pop stars (Miley Cyrus, for instance) than they way they're viewed in Japan.But there's an easy way to figure this one out - ask someone who'd know in our crew. We won't even lose any face - everyone knows we're new to the whole idol scene.
>>32191600It's true, but there is nothing wrong with asking about their boyfriends. Hell, it's the stereotypical boyfriend question. Just don't get too inquisitive. Also as a producer we probably have to cover this up for the public
>>32191613Just making sure. That's all.
>>32191527"So... while we're on the issue of boyfriends." You say, sitting down with a smile on your face. Though, even when you try to look sincere, you get the feeling Rochelle and Cole were being very terribly intimidated by you right now. "Why don't you two tell me more about them? They sound like wonderful people!">roll 1d20
>>32191774Alright, we can stop now
>>32191774Hot damn. I need to roll without the name more often...
Rolled 18>>32191774Lol....Turn it into star power.We need to stockpile.
>>32191774Haha, we now know everything! Or they are so scared that lying or avoiding the question is out of the option
>>32191774Bank this star power. It's just fucking boyfriends.(well hopefully not in the literal sense, but who are we kidding)
>>32191774Well, I guess this means that double date is on.>>32191801Nah. I say keep it. Let's end this infighting over boyfriends here and now.
>>32191824No, boyfriends not such an important issue for the time being.
I wonder how Carol's doing...
>>32191848Our other roll is a 7.
>>32191774save the star power?
>>32191774Haha! Would you like the crit or will you bank it for STAR POWER?Your current count is 1.>Y>N
Let's bank it in. We need the Star Power and I trust our girls to reign in their boyfriends
>>32191857But the skill check turns the 20 into a success if we bank it.
>>32191857It's ok. Banking is more valuable than learning about boyfriends.
Rolled 6>>32191878YBank the star power.Fucking cccccccaaaaaaaat
>>32191878>NOur idols must fear us.
>>32191878NNeed more star power
>>32191878Are we still not rid of you Loki?>NI swear if one of our idols wants a pet cat...
>>32191878>NYou almost tricked me, cat.
>>32191878Wait, merc, I don't think the question was stated clearly? Yes, we want crit, or yes we want to bank?
>>32191774Heh.>>32191878Fuck. You. Cat.
>>32191878>YI can live with "just" a 20 on this.
>>32191878>YIf i see that cat one more time Merc! I will want you to run a next generation of Magical Girl hunter quest.
Rolled 2>>32191878Merc you y/n isnt very clear.Which is which?
>>32191878Wait, is that yes to bank or yes to crit?I'm rather confused now.
>>32191878YWant the crit. Want it bad.
>>32191910For this, I meant bank it for Star Power.
>>32191946>>32191947That was the point, I think.Y is to crit, N is to bank.
>>32191878Merc...please, do not use Yes or No for a question that uses the word "Or".
>>32191940um, i meant yes for banking the star power.
>>32191937Producer confirmed for CASIE Aug?
>>32191878Whoops, I guess I worded that incorrectly. Y for bank, N for crit.
>>32192100Then >Yfor bank.
>>32192100N - Take the critNo amount of combat messups saved is worth missing a comedy scene.
Okay, so it seems like voting might have gotten split or revoted.This is the FINAL vote. Y for bank, N for crit. Votes not linked to this post will not be counted.>Y>N
>>32192199N - I want to see this crit.
>>32192199>NThere is something to be gained here.
After this, I think we should check on Rin or Julie?
>>32192348I say we should check up on Julie, she kind of got wounded last mission, but I also wanna check on Rin because of the attempt on her life.
>>32192348Julie is here now so she goes first.
True or false, more than half this thread is votes.
>>32192199>STAR POWER gained!>Your count is now up to 2!"Well, girls?" You ask."Uh, well, we don't even know each others' real names yet." Rochelle mumbles, looking away. "You remember. You saw him during the airshow, right? We've kinda been online rivals for years now."That was actually kinda sweet, and maybe a bit weird, too."How did that happen, anyways?" You ask."Ah well, we both play this online flight game. I usually main a F-22C, and I maybe sorta figured out a way to shoot missiles backwards, which you normally can't do in the game. The airshow used the exact same system, and I used the move there, too. I guess that's how he recognized me.""Uh huh. So, you've just been staying up all night playing games with him?""Yeah.... I know I usually do something like that." Rochelle sighs."Look, Rochelle, I think it's great you have friends outside the company. But remember to keep it in moderation, all right? I have nothing against you playing games, but not if you're going to be staying up all night.""Understood, sir.""And Cole?" You turn to the other idol. "How's Kaneda been doing?""What makes you think we-" Cole starts, but stops when she sees your knowing grin and just gives up trying to deny it. "We... message each other occasionally. I tell him about the stuff I do on the job, and he tells me how his bike gang is going. Even sends me pictures, too."Cole then hold out her cell phone and shows you a picture of Kaneda and some of his underlings posing around their bikes. However, the background, you see some wrecked bikes and the beaten up bodies of what were undoubtedly rival bikers.This picture seemed more like it should belong in a police evidence server than on a girl's phone."That's.... nice.""You're not going to make us break up with them or anything, will you?" Cole asks. "I've... heard the rumors.">I wouldn't do anything of the sort.>I might.>This is something In need to discuss with my staff.>Other
>>32192567>I wouldn't do anything of the sort.There shouldn't be a problem as long as we keep it on the down-low, right?
>>32192567>>I wouldn't do anything of the sort.It's your personal life, I can only give advice.
>>32192567>I wouldn't do anything of the sort.
>>32192567>I wouldn't do anything of the sort.>Other Just keep it private as much as you can
>>32192567>OtherWell, we do need boy idols...
>>32192567>I wouldn't but if it becomes a problem I will have to take some type of action. Remember the eyes of the city and our rivals our on you girls. All of you. What you do and say will weighed no matter how small. Just keep that in mind is all I ask.Or something.
>>32192567>This is something In need to discuss with my staff.But really I just concerned about your well being and public image. I think as long as we can keep this on the down low, we should be fine.
>>32192567>"I've... heard the rumors."Wait, what rumors? Who's been spreading them?
>>32192567>I wouldn't do anything of the sort.>Other"As long as they keep their hands where they should be when or if you go out on a date with them."
>>32192567>Other"I don't want to break you up; just make sure that it doesn't affect your performance, and keep them on the down-low. In fact, why don't you girls discuss it with Lilith?"
>>32192624>our on you girls>are on you girls
>>32192567>>32192636Actually this, I don't trust ourselves to give out proper advice
>>32192567>This is something In need to discuss with my staff.We need to see how other idol companies handle things like this, and we need to come up with a PR strategy.
>>32192650Probably because this is actually a producer level decision, the boyfriend policy. But I think all the anons are cool with it
>>32192676>>32192650As long as it's kept in moderation.
>>32192676I'm fine with them keeping their boyfriends, it's normal and we trust them but for actually boy advice, I think lillith might be a person to consult
>>32192567ROCHELLE CONFIRMED FOR AKULAAMERICA AND RUSSIA CONFIRMED FOR FUCKED
>>32192676I think Cole talking about it with Lilith would be helpful. But we as producer aren't going to interfer with her private life if it doesn't interfere with her job.
>>32192636I agree. We're a dumb guy about this kinda thing. Tell Lillith and Lilith can simplify so we can understand
>>32192567>Discuss with the staff.Seriously, we don't know the protocol on this.And Cole/Kaneda tag-teaming the football team probably went viral. If we force her to break it off with him, we could lose something.
>>32192567>This is something In need to discuss with my staff.
>>32192747Well he is the Prophet who danced with their Idol, so we need to let it go naturally.
>>32192567>I wouldn't do anything of the sort.BUT, it's your responsibility to not do anything irresponsible. I'm trusting you on this.And if you need advice about this sort of thing don't be afraid to ask me, but be even less afraid to ask Lilith since I'd probably give horrible relationship advice.
>>32192710>>32192720Good point. Tell them they can keep their personal lives private, but they need to keep Lilith in the loop and Lilith needs to make sure they know healthy and acceptable boundaries. Also, incase they haven't had it, "the talk" on the physical and emotional aspects of relationships, sex, and birth control.
>>32192718S-she's a submarine?I guess that's kinda moe.
>>32192567You sigh. Jenner had warned you a lot of other idol companies forbid relationships, and more than a few prohibited ANY sort of outside contact at all. However, there wasn't any hard and fast rule about how to deal with relationships, and was usually up to each individual company to decide. And here... well... you couldn't really see any reason to butt into your idols' personal affairs like that. Not unless doing so posed some sort of huge danger."I wouldn't do anything of the sort." You sigh. "Just try not to make a big deal out of it, okay? We already have enough on the job to worry about.""Yes sir!" Rochelle nods."Yeah, sure." Cole shrugs.Well, with that settled...>Talk to another idol. (specify)>Check the shop.>Check intel.>Other
>>32192567>I won't force you to, but if it comes to it we might have to keep it quiet for a little while
>>32192805>Talk to another idol. (specify)Morgan. Let's see what she's doing.
>>32192629In the modern Japanese idol industry, having a boyfriend or being known to have had sex can destroy an idol's career, since she'd no longer 'pure'.Well, she's no longer good, untaken wish-fulfillment material for the otaku.There may be something similar in Delta City.
>>32192805>Talk to another idol. (specify)Check out Julie. I know she is ok, but yeah...
>>32192805Talk to Morgan and ask her what she is writing if that's ok
>>32192805>>Talk to another idol. (specify)Julie then RinThen Morgan
>>32192805>>Talk to another idol. (Morrigan)How are ya doin, mah girl?
>>32192805>Talk to another idol. (specify)Just check up on Julie and make sure her wound ain't bothering her.Then Morgan.
>>32192805Talk to another idol. (specify)Let's check in on Morgan to see how she felt with her first few missions on this team.
>>32192847Has she even sing and dance yet? Bwahahahaha....
>>32192805>>Talk to another idol. (specify)Morgan. She seems all lonely or something.>>32192825They also by like 100 copies of a single if there is a chance to get a ticket for a handshake event or something of the sort. Disgusting.
>>32192825This is Detroit, not being pregnant by the age of 16 is being pure as fuck
>>32193007No, this is Delta City, Detroit was literally buried under it. Being from the tombs, the tombs girls probably need to go to Lilith for "the talk"
Serious question:Let's say Cole has a kid. Does that kid inherit her electric powers?What is the nature of Cole's ability? A mutation? Or a genemod?
>>32193068If I remember, Producer told Dr Stiles that it was a rare genemod.
>>32192805>Talk to Morgan
>>32192805"ALSO, girls, I'm not sure what the parents or schools are teaching these days, but I suggest you consult with Lillith for matters concerning significant others. Both emotionally and... physically.""What do you mean by that?" Cole raises an eyebrow."He means SEX, you twit!" Julie says, bluntly as ever."W-w-w-why would I want to ask somebody about that!" Cole stammers. You leave the girls with their lighthearted bickering and head over to the window, where you see Morgan still scribbling notes down as she looks out the window."Hey, Morgan, what are you up to?" You ask."Oh, I'm just scoping out the area." She says, not taking her eyes off her notebook. "You know, jotting down landmarks, ranges, possible shooting locations, that sort of thing.""...is this something you normally do?""Da, when I have to live somewhere long term. Can't hurt to be prepared, you know? What if somebody takes a shot at us here? At least I'd be able to get a quick fix on their location.""That's... awfully foresighted of you." You nod. >Ask her how she feels about idoling.>Ask her more about her family.>Encourage her to interact more with the other idols.>Other

>>32193138"You know, Morgan, it wouldn't do well for you to be off by yourself the whole time." You smile softly. "You should be spending this time getting to know your fellow idols.""But-""Let ME worry about security. That's one of my jobs, after all." You laugh. "You should building bonds with your fellow idols, as well and training. Remember, not only do you have to learn how to shoot people, but entertain them as well!""Ah, I guess you're right." Morgan nods."And you know, I was a marksman myself, so I know the value of spotting shooting positions." You continue. "I'm perfectly aware of how dangerous snipers can be.""I see." Morgan smiles. "Okay, then I trust you'll look after me?""Morgan," You laugh. "I look after EVERYBODY."With that, Morgan wanders off and sits next to Rochelle and they both get into a heated discussion about... something. Though you have the distinct feeling it has something to do about guns.You check your watch and frown. It was almost practice time, and you didn't really want to delay your girls.

>>32193897Now it was time to get down to business. You head down to the data center, where Jenner and Himawari are already waiting for you. In front of them, you see a massive screen divided up into multiple windows, with various things going on. Text files scrolling along, video files, and other programs all running concurrently. "Ah, you're here." Jenner nods at your arrival. "We've already gotten through most of the material. Neucom's investigators are certainly thorough.""Well, they have the money and the clout to access whatever databases they want." Himawari nods. "Anyways, they started off by checking for any suspicious money transfers from their competitors. At the same time, they ran facial recognition from the photos we got, and they got a hit.""So who is it?""Well, the saboteurs are apparently idols in the employ of Rose Entertainment." Jenner says. "There was also a transfer of funds from a General Resources dummy account into an anonymous banking service. One that Rose Entertainment is known to use.""I guess I shouldn't be surprised." You sigh. "They really weren't kidding when they said they wanted us off their turf.""So what should we do about this?" Jenner asks.>We pay them back, of course.>We'll ignore it for now.

>>32194274Speaking of IS, this image came out recently.
>>32194216>>We'll ignore it for now. We don't want to start anything.We'll continue operations>>32194274>>32194261>>32194234Why should we do it, let's continue what we have been doing, Let's not give ground on district 2
>>32194216Right now we'll steer clear. But what we will do is inform our new friends at the amusement park about it, so when they hit Rose Entertainment and District 2, we'll help them take Derosa and his goons out.
>>32194216>We'll continue doing what we have been doing, we'll accept offers when we can and if they happen to be in district two, we'll be prepared

>>32194216>We pay them back, of course.What was the name of the other idol group. We need to start talks with them to try to coordinate Rose Entertainment's downfall.
>>32194216>We pay them back, of course.Also this:>>32194241
>>32194216>>32194254>>32194299>>32194311This, I'm not going to give up district 2, we'll just set up defenses when we have operations in District 2

>>32194216>We'll ignore it for now. We don't want to start anything.We'll continue our operations at District 2
>>32194216>>We pay them back, of course.Kill all their idols.Seriously, i have no idea how we'll pay them back. Petty revenge plans will just add fuel to the fire. We must really destroy them to eliminate the threat. Bankrupt them somehow maybe.
Okay, so let's just say that we somehow manage to get the upper hand and DeRosa tries to negotiate. What would be the best course of action?
>>32194216>We pay them back, of course.
>>32194355I think bankrupting them is a more ethnic option than killing them all.
>>32194295>Collaborating with NazisHow Vichy of Char I'll just show myself out the door
>>32194355Well, it's not really "petty revenge" if they were planning on seriously injuring or possible killing one of our own.And just ignoring it for now, seem kinda like the best way, at least until we get more information and form a plan. Still we should just prepare for any follow attacks or schemes, just in case. Just because we stopped them once and are ignoring them, doesn't mean they will try again.
>>32194355We need to team up with the Magical Girl group we met earlier and plot the Rose girls' downfall.>>32194369All we need is guarantee that they will not ever attempt to harm us or work against our interests. As collateral, we have access to their accounts and computer systems to monitor their activities.
>>32194408We will do the same thing as we did during the school concert, we'll set up our idols to defend against any sabotage and maybe capture their idols in the process
>>32194295>>32194312Also this image for even less context
>>32194408We should really work with the Magical Girl group. They are all combat idols, and will greatly increase our combat power.
>>32194432I'm thinking more proactive than that. We should hit their money and use that money to strengthen ourselves and hire proxies to both attack and protect ourselves.
>>32194454Yes, we can't forget Alice's and Carol's secret ability. It is truly an invaluable asset.
>>32194453That will make us no better then them, I prefer defense and capture and ransom. Either way, let's try and follow the rules, they do now and we will make them pay dearly
>>32194473If Carol has the highest concentration of Invader genes, does that mean she will live the longest?Being immortal can sure get lonely...
>>32194492I'm not sure what the benefit of being better than them implies. We should team up with the Magical Girl group and take down their supporting pillars. Attack first and destroy their resources.
>>32194546We barely know the magical girl group.
>>32194435Agreed. Our business interests don't have much overlap since we're not in the Magical Girl business at all, and Rose has tried to bully us both. They could make for solid allies.
>>32194546Different anon here, how much of the pie should we give them when we're done?
What is the bad things about having too many idols?
>>32194560Depends on how much work they do or weight they carry. If they do more, then 2/3 of the pie is acceptable.
>>32194589In the industry, to be successful, an idol has to stand above the rest to get noticed.
>>32194216"We'll ignore it for now." You say. "I don't think we're in a position to start an idol war.""That might just embolden them to try again." Jenner warns."I'm not saying we won't do anything. We'll increase security for all jobs that take place in District Two from now on." You say with determination. "If they come for us again, well, then we'll pull out all the stops.""You're the Producer." Jenner nods. "Anyways, there's another bit of business to attend to.""Yes?" You ask."The Boss has been in contact with Hyperion and Neucom, and they've agreed to jointly fund an expansion to our office building. We have 7 idols right now, and we'll need an 8th to round out a full roster. I'm sure you've noticed that we're starting to push the limits of what this small building can provide.""That's great!" You smile. "When will it happen?""They're refitting an old Hyperion facility, so it should be ready to move in in a week or two.""Nice.""Also, that means we would have the space to support an 8th idol." Jenner continues. "If you feel we need one, of course.">The more the merrier.>I think we're good with the ones we have now.>Other
>>32194631>>The more the merrier.Main reason, I held back was because of the building limits
>>32194554We have common interest in taking down the Rosa group and we fulfill different niches. That's good enough.>>32194560Honestly, enough for them to work with us. The main goal is the neutralize the Rosa group from being a threat, then we can focus on the pure entertainment and not on girls-killing-girls.I kinda want to form a co-op of smaller idol groups. Create a coalition to protect ourselves from the big fish. The goal of the co-op is to provide collective security for it's members, and to focus on the entertainment business once a completely violence-free industry is established. We're in the money business, not the thinly veiled PMC business.
>>32194631>>I think we're good with the ones we have now.
>>32194631>the more the merrier
>>32194631>The more the merrier.But what kind? Performance or combat?
So who should we get now? Performer, Demogirl, Medic, Engineer?
>>32194631>The more the merrier.At the current rate of business expansion, we're need more idols sooner. Preferably a combat idol again to increase our security.>OtherCan we also get in contact with that Magical Girl group? Maybe we can come to a mutual security arrangement with them to increase our combined combat power?
>>32194666We're pretty well set on combat, we should get another performance idol for a solid trio.
>>32194631>The more, the merrierI think we can take it slow, looking for our last combat idol. We'll want to really, really look for someone who will fit with the team and fulfill a need.
>>32194666>>32194684Combat, since Niko and Rin are our main Performance idols, We do a lot more battle operations anyway. Not to mention we're going to face against Rose entertainment. I prefer Medic or Infiltrator
>>32194684What's the difference between the last three?If possible, I would like to get a heavy weapons girl. Focused on heavy machine guns and rockets to provide covering fire and area denial.
>>32194684>>32194721Actually, how much do combat drones cost? K-Zwolf has most definitely been one of our most effective members of our group?
>>32194724I'm not so sure about the rockets (due to K-Zwolf accidentally hitting that car), but the MG sounds good.
>>32194724I thought Melissa was the heavy weapons girl due to her Augs.
>>32194718I like this general idea. Even if we end up getting a performer the same idea should apply.
>>32194724>heavy machine gunWe already have a LMG on Melissa, rockets is overkill on 90% of stuff we do. What we could use is a Demogirl or a Medic depending on how we want to set the squad up as.More attack or well rounded.
>>32194770How about a performance idol with supplementary medical skills?We probably should have more actual performers and getting someone who can bandage people in the field shouldn't be too terribly hard either from a scouting or training perspective
>>32194783To add if you really want some bloody heavy weapons tell Merc to let us buy some damn Mastiffs.
>>32194799Then their skills will be weaker, and performance idols don't fight, I rather not have a performance idol with some first aid skills to be in combat situations
>>32194810You know we could use them for moving around stage equipment and what not when they're not doing combat stuff...
>>32194747Rockets are an invaluable tool. Much better to have them than to need them and not have them.I brainstormed maybe a flamethrower to clear out indoor fighting?>>32194763I thought so too, but she has a really high melee combat skill.>>32194718>>32194770I disagree, we are still in the very early stages of our company, and we need rapid expansion to handle both jobs and security for jobs. Better to grow fast now so when we need more idols, we already have experienced idols at hand. Training idols to be experienced is the slowest part.>>32194783Honest question, what can a demogirl do that a rocket cannot? More precise explosions?
>>32194799It might be hard to find a girl willing/able to work in the field if she is a performer.
>>32194631>>The more the merrier.
>>32194631"Well, the more the merrier." You shrug. "Do we have candidates?""Well, thanks to our increased exposure, and our sponsors, we do have quite a pool of applicants now." Jenner says. "I'll show the most promising ones.">MEDIC: Trained and equipped to handle medical emergencies, medics have the know how to keep even the most grievously wounded soldier alive and combat capable.

>>32195181Agreed. Having some one who can patch the other girls up is definitely a good thing. So you have any ideas about who? Because I kinda think Cole would work if we raise her Int a bit more.Also walking AED.
>>32195200I'm going to laugh, if it's not her. and then be pissed for those that did just for the chance it might be her, when we needed a medic but choose not to for nostalgia points
>>32195165I think our most urgent task is to contact the Magical Girl group to start laying down the groundwork of our alliance.>>32195181If I remember correctly, combat medics have to perform the duties of a rifleman, as well as carry the trauma kit.>>32195183>>32195200Same anon, on the bright side we now have twice the explosive capability. Or now we can have K-Zwolf on a different mode.>>32195181>>32195183>>32195200>>32195217>>32195228Actually, with this much discussion of Medic vs demogirl, I think we should expand to include another girl as soon as our office expansion is ready. We will need the girl power and I think we have the money at least for now.
>>32195217Int-wise Rochelle and Morgan would be better, but Rochelle's already team leader and Morgan's not gonna be in a good position for quick response. Cole's already shaping up for backup leader, so how about Melissa?
>>32195217Yeah, Cole can defib people on her own. She might lack confidence though, but we'll have to deal with it. I'd say train our team leaders, Rochelle and Cole, in Medicine.
>>32195249Again, what reasons would they ally with us, they have no incentive to. To be honest, I kind of hope we don't get sparky
>>32195251Meh I was thinking along the same lines but came up with Cole by virtue of her not having a single job. Secondary FTL and Medic seems like it fit.
>>32195089>>Go down to the garage to see Stig.
>>32195278I explained before:>We have common interest in taking down the Rosa group and we fulfill different niches. That's good enough.Also someone else said:>Agreed. Our business interests don't have much overlap since we're not in the Magical Girl business at all, and Rose has tried to bully us both. They could make for solid allies.
>>32195267Additionally, since Cole's ability is keyed to her Int, I figured she would eventually surpass most of the others if we could train it in any sort of active way.
>>32195320However, the Magical Girl group has no past we know of that they were bullied.Also just because their niche they still have places or districts they will like to maintain
>>32195331Remember Rose did try to hire us to go after them.I imagine he didn't stop his plans just because we didn't agree. (Or pussy footed around it, whatever)
>>32195348Did he, we disagreed, we just did it that way to be polite
>>32195320They would be good, albeit transient allies. We would need to wait until they thought of DeRosaas a legitimate threat however, unless we can diplomance. Otherwise, I doubt they wouldn't lend their idols for a real attack on DeRosa unless we offered sever concessions/bribes.
>>32195331Rose tried to hire us to gank them. How do you not remember that?
>>32195367>http://suptg.thisisnotatrueending.com/archive/30865036/#p30866559Is where he wanted to hire us.Then we went said 'i'll talk to boss because i'm too much of a bitch to decide for myself even though that's what I'm hired for.'
>>32195331>However, the Magical Girl group has no past we know of that they were bullied.True, but if we work together we stand a chance of taking down a big fish like Rosa.>Also just because their niche they still have places or districts they will like to maintainThen for this we share access for district 2. Give them preferred access if they want it. Long term security means we either find a way to control Rosa, or dismantle it.>>32195369Well in the idol business, there are no true allies. But it's important to see opportunities to take down big threats once they appear, and we should take advantage of this window while we can.Access to distract 2 is a big prize. At least between the 2 groups it's enough to share for the short term once DeRosa is dealt with.
>>32195089"Hey Stig, what's up?" You ask as you come down to the garage.Stig just looks at you, and then back to the SUV."What Mr. 'I don't feel like talking' is trying to say here is that something is up with this SUV." You see Falynn poke her head out one of the windows. "There's a lot of nonstandard parts.""Like?""Well, this isn't exactly like the old SUV. This is a Neucom brand one." Falynn shrugs. "It has a much more efficient armor design so it has equivalent protection with less weight. There are also a bunch of other small improvements, but there's this one component that's got me and Stig stumped.""Show it me." You narrow your eyes.Falynn pops the engine open, and the three of you look inside, and Stig points to one little section. There, you can see a empty spot in the compartment, as if a chunk of the engine was missing."What's supposed to be there?" You ask.Stig just shrugs."That's the thing. Neither of us knows." Falynn frowns. "It doesn't seem vital to operating the vehicle, though. Stig put it through its paces and tested it in every driving scenario. It works perfectly fine.""Any ideas?""Well..." Falynn sighs. "I found connection ports in the empty section. From what I've seen, it's probably some kind of digital component. What it does, I have no damn clue.""Would Himawari know?""She can try, but she wants your okay first." Falynn says. "You know how megacorp proprietary tech works. Try and mess with it, and bad things happen.">Call in Himawari>Leave it alone for now.>Other
>>32195426>>Leave it alone for now.
>>32195426>Call in HimawariOh boy...
>>32195401Yeah, it's true that we did that, but I would like to think the Producer is experiencing personal growth and character development through his mistakes.But in my opinion, that was not a mistake. Nothing good comes out of working with people like him>Leave it alone for now.>OtherAsk Neucom why is the design different, for maintenance purposes and pure curiosity.
>>32195426>Call in HimawariSome kind of mecha transformation?
>>32195426>Call in HimawariJust don't put anything in there. I want to find out what anything put in that place is all about. Also, can Stig check that place every few days in case of people putting things in there when no one is looking.
>>32195426>Leave it alone for now.
>>32195426>Call in HimawariKITT anyone?>>32195451>But in my opinion, that was not a mistake. Nothing good comes out of working with people like himNot disagreeing, but we should have just flat out said no.
>>32195426>Call in HimawariAre we getting NEMO?
>>32195426>>Call in Himawari
>>32195401Your never going to let that go aren't you?
>>32195426>Leave it alone for now.>OtherWe can ask Neucom about it, so far it has no effect on the SUV so it should be safe.
>>32195481True, we were a pussy. But still, fuck him anyways.
>>32195426>>Call in HimawariI'm betting it's an interface port for an AI unit.
>>32195426>Call in Himawari
>>32195426>Call in HimawariWe have her for a reason. If our girls are getting in this thing we need to know if it might be a liability. If she cant figure out what it does, safely mind you, we scrap the SUV and spring for a new one.
>>32195426>Leave it alone for now.>OtherAsk Neucom why is the design different, for maintenance purposes and pure curiosity.voted here:>>32195451but forgot to link
>>32195481Well I voted no, I didn't even wanted to talk to the guy but some people wanted to play the system.Hurdur we should work together against another idol company. >>32195508We got it the first time,
>>32195426>Call in HimawariI doubt they'd send us a product with an obviously mysterious component (or conspicuous lack thereof I guess) and expect us not to poke at it a bit.
>>32195544Eh, nothing wrong with talking. We even got the name of another idol group that is at odds with DeRosa.
>>32195561But the way we did it was terrible.We literally asked to be their henchmen just because we wanted to work with another idol company.
>>32195553MegaCorps anon. I would assume it is tactite knowledge in the Future you don't fuck with their stuff. Even if they "sell" or "give" it to you. Contracts and all.Also, lawyer support staff when? Seems like that would be an essential part of any company ever in this universe.
>>32195576No we said that there are no need for us to directly compete if we had the right incentive.Instead, they offered us to do their dirty work. So we said no (in a way)
>>32195628No we asked to point us to an area where there was another idol group so we can work together....you know what forget it, I'm forgetting even why we are fighting. I just got a little irritated over some anon calling the producer a pussy.
>>32195426"Himawari, you think you can come down here for a second?" You ask."Do I have to?""It's not like I'm asking you to go outside in the sun." You sigh."O-okay." She says reluctantly. A few minutes later. Himawari shuffles over with a laptop."So what do you need me for?""We need to have this engine checked. It's missing some kind of unknown digital component, but we don't know what. We were hoping you'd be able to find out.""Ah, okay then." Himawari nods and takes a look. "Hmmmm, that's a nonstandard connector. Let me see if I can rig something up...."Himawari fumbles around with her tools before sticking a connector into the slot.""Okay, wish me luck...">roll 1d20
>>32195690Hah, a good roll already.
>>32195690Thank you based RNGods.
>>32195708>>32195722And I was waiting the whole time for the third roll to take it away. But it didn't happen. Woo!
>>32195682What does Himawari smell like /tg/?Is it sunshine?
>>32195764Smelly NEET Pussy
>>32195764Such smells likea NEET.
>>32195764Probably like NEET
>>32195833Nivea and beer?
>>32195848No.Shame and failure.
>>32195861Well she isn't a NEET any more so... I am a gonna go with off-brand Herbal Essence and cloths worn for a couple of days.
>>32195895You think that the smell of shame and failure will ever go away? Anon, you have much to learn.
>>32195690"Hmmmmm..." Himawari narrows her eyes. "HMMMMMM.""What's all this hmmming about?" You raise an eyebrow."Well, I think I figured out what was supposed to be in here." Himawari says. "Some kind of AI control module.""Don't most cars already have an autodrive function?" You ask."Well, yes." Himawari nods. "But that's just basic programming. They follow a set list of instructions based on GPS and built in road sensors. The second you take them off the grid, they're pretty much useless.""And this is different?""I suspect, it's something involving true autonomous driving." Himawari says. "Looks like Neucom is really confident in that research, if they're already building the functionality into their vehicles.""Huh, well thanks, Himawari." You say.Well, what do you know. There are more and more surprises every day.>And that's it for tonight! I was hoping to get to shopping today, but it's already rather late. We'll handle next week, then! I'll be running the continuation of Fallschirmjager Witches on Sunday, and Gundam Build Fighters on Friday. Don't miss them!
>>32195922Can you post the catalog anyways, then we can discuss it now and finally decide next time?
>>32195922Thanks for running Merc!
>>32195922Really?I was hoping to get some missions to pick out though before we ended. Well it's already 5am in my time though
>>32195922Haha. The anon who said he wouldn't get to go shopping was right! Thanks for running Merc!You should totally run this on Sundays after finishing up with Witches.
>>32195922>>32195970I agree, we can probably get more done at least for the summer
>>32195986It would be nice. Shit I would even be happy with this and GBF switching off every other week for the Sunday spot.This is, however, the first of Merc's quests that I followed so...
>>32195922Could we get the shopping list first please?
At some point someone needs to rig an image of the characters and their avatars.I keep forgetting what they look like ;_;
For those who were asking, here is the updated shop list.http://pastebin.com/jcwD3gZb
>>32196371So will we ever see these 'numerous attachments' for the M55 AR? All we've seen is the shotgun one...Would like to underslung grenade launcher or well anything really.
>>32196371That vtol.We could really use one.What do you folks think of 1k to upgrade jenner's personal car with improved engines and armour?
Merc, our passenger van had already been uparmoured right? So would you kindly put it in the pastebin if it has been, so we don't uparmour it again>>32196535Ask Jenner. It's her car.
