Unfortunately, you got stuck in a bit of traffic this morning, and you're unable to get to the office before your idols head off to practice. Sighing, you go over the list of tasks you're supposed to handle today, courtesy of Jenner.>Check the shop for new purchases.>See your Demogirl>Call up Dr. Cohen about your SUV.>TURN ON THE NEWS RIGHT NOW>Other

So our new car has a spot for an A.I. right? So why don't we put K-Zwolf in the car, while Producer Direct Controls K-Zwolf's empty chassis?
>>32383605Because wolf AI =/= car AI
>>32383605I am thinking more KITT from knight rider vibe here.K-Zwolf if far more useful in his own droid body.
(I have returned from the dead! But seriously, I had to stay in the hospital for a bit...)Gentlemen, it appears that some of the idols of Clover Entertainment have...boyfriends... If we do not stop this immediately, irreparable damage will be inflicted upon the world order. Here to elaborate, Dr. Bartholomew Konengulus.(1/3)
>>32383655As you know, if one were to teach a child a skill from an early age for each generation, their collective knowledge increases exponentially. People like Mozart who learned from his father, who in turn learned from his father, and so on and so forth. Should Rochelle ever bring a child into the world, that child would quickly become the world's greatest gamer. This child will have enough skill that they shall be now designated as "The Last Starfighter", a person who is so skilled in games that they actually learn the skills portrayed in the game world; even though we had spent decades and countless taxpayer's dollars in order to make games that keep the masses distracted from our goals. "The Last Starfighter" would become the ultimate supersoldier, a genius who would would have accelerated learning capabilities and can analyze data in an instant. This may seem to be a disaster, but we haven't even mentioned the upcoming catastrophe that Cole would bring upon the world. Our best paid speculative scientists believe that should Cole ever achieve an orgasm, she will subconsciously create an Electro-Magnetic Pulse equivalent to five nuclear explosions. This is more than enough to cause the entirety of Delta City's power grid to be plunged into a Black Out, and fry every single unshielded electronic device. The resulting anarchy would be too much for our forces to handle!(2/3)

>>32383337>TURN ON THE NEWS RIGHT NOWHave a coffee. Watch the news
>>32383665Oh thanks Tribunal! Now my sides have taken off once more. You know how long it was for them to come back?
>>32383665I wonder what each of our idol's kids would be like.
>>32383337>OtherSince its Memorial day, reminisce (flashback) to your time in the Army and the people your have had the pleasure of working with. Try not to cry, then cry
For those who haven't seen Ace Combat Infinity, spoilers below:Looks like we'll be taking the fight to USEA as ISAF one more time...
Other things that we need to consider/do very soon:-Contact the Producer of the Magical Girls to see what we can do to work together-Begin hacking into Rose entertainment. We've basically drawn battlelines. Who gives a shit if they detect us at this point.-Touch bases with the producer of Horizon Entertainment. We just need to establish some contact so that we have a line of communication if we want to work/do business together.
>>32383337Listening to apparent urgency of Jenner's hastily written note, you quickly switch on the TV and flip to a news channel to see what's going on. You wince at the headline scrolling across the screen.BREAKING NEWS: ANOTHER GIRL FOUND DEADYou see two news anchors whose names you can't quite recall coolly reciting their practiced lines as the headline scrolls."If you're joining us just now, earlier today another young girl was found dead in District Two. Our reporter Lewis on the scene right now. Lewis, can you tell us what's going on?"The screen then shifts to a tired looking, bespectacled man standing in front of a line of police tape and a veritable army of policemen and flashing lights. You raise an eyebrow. People died all the time in Delta City, though you suppose a murder in the relatively safe District Two would raise alarm bells. You continue to watch."Well, I've been talking to investigators here, and while they won't release the girls' identity until her family is notified, they have confirmed that there is a high chance she was the victim of a serial killing.""Are you saying there's a serial killer in Delta City?" One of the anchors says, surprised."According to the police, yes. Their evidence says that this killing and the previous two all show a consistent pattern, suggesting that they were all perpetrated by the same killer." Reporter Lewis sighs. "In addition to extreme mutilation and death by knives, the victims all apparently work in the idol industry.""Well, I suppose now's not a good time to be an idol then, huh?" The male anchor unsuccessfully wisecracks. He then coughs awkwardly and turns back to the camera. "All right, Lewis, thanks for the report. We'll check back later for updates. Now, for our next story, ROBOCOPS, miracles or menaces?"(cont)
>>32383764I look forward flying along with Espada, Crow, Antares, Schnee, Varcolac, Sorcerer, Silber and Wizard squadron.
>>32383851>Robocop, who is he?
>>32383851You flip off the TV and turn to see Jenner behind you, arms crossed."Is that what you wanted to warn me about?" You asked."I thought you needed to see for yourself." Jenner says. "There's also going to be a meeting of sorts.""Between who?""The idol companies. All of them. This is a matter that pertains to all of us, you know." Jenner shrugs. "There are rare times where we set aside our differences for a common goal. This is one of those times.""All right, so when is going to take place?""Today. Emergency meeting, which is why it's such short notice. I need to let them know if we'll be attending or not.">Of course.>This doesn't concern us.>Other
>>32383869>>Of course.Might as well network.
>>32383851Huh. Looks like a good time to stay away from two for a while. Let Rose's idols become fodder.>>32383869Of Course.
>>32383869>Of course.Not like we have much choice here.
>>32383869>Of course.Might as well meet the producers of all the important companies. Get to know the competition.
>>32383869>Of course.Let's bring some donuts.
>>32383869>Of course.>>32383889Just don't bring any with jelly inside. I fucking hate that.
>>32383869>Of courseThis needs to be done. We can have our private summit with the Magical Girls producer there too.
>>32383869Idols come first
>>32383889Donuts with tracking nano-machines?Nah, don't do that.
>>32383869>Of course.>Other"ALL OF THEM?" How many are there? Or just District 2?
>>32383869>>Of course.Two producers that we're looking for~ Horizon and Zenith
What if the serial killer is project Blackwatch?
>>32383913>>32383917What the heck guys? I was just suggesting we be polite and bring some food. It'll make use seem friendly.
>>32383927I now regret mentioning Blacklight in my earlier meetings...
>>32383936Sorry, I was joking.But seriously, I hate dunkin donuts. They taste like dry plastic.
>>32383936It'll also mean we're obligated to eat food brought by rossa.Would you eat treats he bought?
Guys.What if.What if the serial killer isCarol, escaped from confinement. Killing idols looking for mommy
>>32383869Are our performance idols still dorming in the company? Or more specifically, is Rin still NOT commuting anymore?
Alice raised Carol better than that!
>>32383987Rin is still commuting
>>32383973Death by Knives, its Kaleidoscope gone mad.
>>32383954It's alright Tribunal, don't worry about it. they could make a great villain after all.
>>32383958Well the implication is that if we fuck with the food, it pisses all the other idol companies against them.But common courtesy is to take the first bite or drink out of any dish we bring.>>32383973That reminds me of the Jack the Ripper assassin of Fate/Apocrypha
>>32384017Then that would be kinda creepy with the whole, "wanting to be one with mother" thing...
>>32383987>>32383996Well, we need to temporarily change that.Or assign K-Zwolf to guard detail.
>>32384034Now the question is are you talking about MG Hunters Quest or Fate/Apocrypha? It can easily apply to both.
>>32384039Pretty sure Jenner is driving her back everyday or something.In anycase, I doubt shes commuting home without an escort now.
>>32384062Do we have enough space in our dorms Rin to temporarily live in. This might be the best solution overall.
>>32383973>>32383998Nah, i think it's Alice torqued off that Ian has gotten into Idol music and has paid not enough attention to her.
Cole and Niko won't like a curfew. We'll have to sell it to them.
So what kind of person is skilled enough to take down an idol? All I can think of is another idol.
>>32384086We might.But she stays at home because she wants to take care of her grandfather.Unless we have him or her whole family move in as well, I don't see it working out as she will be distracted.
>>32383869"Of course. This is a pretty serious matter." You frown. "If somebody is going around killing idols, what's stopping our idols from begin a target?""All right, I schedule it for tonight, then." Jenner nods. "Another issue, it's about Rin."Ah, yes. Rin commuted to the office every day, which meant she was always potentially vulnerable while in transit. That had to be something that had to be taken care of."You already warned her, I assume?" You ask."Yes, but she's adamant about staying home with her grandfather." Jenner sighs. "Kids, you know? She basically can't leave his side.""She won't budge on the matter?""No. The way I see it, you're either going to have to force her to stay here, or you'll have to dedicated some of our combat idols to escorting her during her commute until this whole situation is resolved." Jenner says.>I'll talk to Rin>We'll assign a protective detail, then.>Other
>>32384125Military, PMCs, professional assassins, the list is endless.
>>32384150>talk to Rin and discuss her options
>>32384150>I'll talk to RinWe may end up with the protective detail, but I want to talk to her first.
>>32384150>I'll talk to Rin
>>32384150>>We'll assign a protective detail, then.>OtherDo we know which idol company was targeted or were all these idol/staff targeted randomly?
>>32384150>>We'll assign a protective detail, then.>>32384160The thing is, the idols were mutilated. I would think that the murders are meant to sent a message. Makes you wonder why they didn't just kill them.
>>32384150>I'll talk to RinNo, the safest place is not her home.
>>32384150>>OtherIs our new facility large enough to house her grandfather with us? We'll have a doctor on hand to help him so it'll be beneficial for his health, we can spin it that way for her."
>>32384195I think it's a very specific message. Not only are they dead, but is try to attack the appearance, image, or attractiveness.
>>32384150>I'll talk to RInGive her the situation. We'll probably have to do the security detail anyway but I'd want a face-to-face with Rin on this.
>>32384215THIS.Ask this to make sure we have options to present to her.
>>32384150>I'll talk to RinJust until this blows over she should really be staying with the other girls.
>>32384215That may be a very good way to spin this.
>>32384150>>I'll talk to Rin
>>32384150>I'll talk to Rin>>32384215not a bad idea, but talk to her first.
>>32384215Oh, this could be good.
>>32384215We don't even have access to it yet...
>>32384150>We'll assign a protective detail, then.Morale will drop you idiots
>>32384150>I'll talk to RinAs others have stated, us having a face-to-face with Rin should happen even if we do detail after that.>>32384277Her safety. Moving between her house opens her up and our other idols needlessly.
>>32384277We'll find a compromise if possible.>>32384271Well, think of it as a trade off. And I sure we can find a way to make sure her grandpa is fine when Rin is away. Like a temp caretaker or something.
>>32384317>Well, think of it as a trade off.What trade off? We have no access to the place. This isn't even option at this time.>Like a temp caretaker or something.Something she most likely doesn't want.
>>32384150>otherHave her grandfather move into the offices. We could use some cool old guy.
>>32384420If I remember the early threads, wasn't her grandfather part of the military or something?
>>32384420It sounds like he is dying or infirm, he can't be moved?
>>32384449If he's dying then this will be problematic.>if Rin stays with her grandfather, she'll be a target>if Rin stays with the other idols, she'll miss her last chance to be with her granfather
>>32384473We can assign protection
>>32384449Then we can arrange something.Good thing we have a emergency doctor on hand who can help supervise the move.
>>32384492Wished we had that medic to help out. We got sparky. Sure. But I feel kind of depressed at that
>>32384150>We'll assign a protective detail, then.
>>32384513Me too. But not a bad second choice. And we can hire the medic next chance we get.
>>32384547I guess but we're not getting anymore idols
>>32384561I thought the new facility would allow us to hire more? Or am I mistaken?
>>32384561We're moving soon remember?
>>32384513We have the doc and the nurse. We'll manage.>>32384547We're full up, no more hiring.
>>32384574>>32384579Yes. Enough space to hire the demogirl.
>>32384574>>32384579The new facility is including sparky. We have 8 idols the original only held 6
>>32384608Wait, only enough to hire one more. That is not much of a facility upgrade. I was expecting double space or something?
>>32384627 The original facility only held 6, the new facility hold 8 I'm assuming
>>32384150"All right, I think I'll talk to Rin about this." You say. "Maybe I can talk some sense into her, or at least work something out.""Good idea." Jenner nods. "Let me know what happens."Checking the girls' schedules, you see that at this time, Rin should be taking dancing lessons. You head over to the practice room and peek in through the door. You see Ushiyama overseeing the girls as they go through them motions for their newest choreography. You then catch his eye for a brief second, and you point to Rin. The dance instructor nods and heads over to Rin, taking her to the side and whispering to her. Rin nods and head to the door towards you."I suppose this is about my housing situation?" Rin asks as you lead her into the relative privacy of the outside hall."It is, actually." You sigh. "Look, Rin, I'd be happy to let you do what you want, but the circumstances just aren't working in our favor right now.""It's just a small chance, right?" Rin frowns. "Besides, I don't want to leave Grandpa alone. I'm... I"m pretty much all he has left now.""What about your parents?""They're working most of the time and don't really have the time or energy to take care of him." Rin sighs. "He gets lonely very easily.">I'm sorry, But you're going to have to stay here.>I'll have to assign you a protective detail, then.>How would you feel about moving your grandfather to our new office?>Other
>>32384672>How would you feel about moving your grandfather to our new office?Let's try this first before security detail.
>>32384672>How would you feel about moving your grandfather to our new office?
I dunno about moving an old man into a dorm with a bunch of teenage girls.>>32384672>I'll have to assign you a protective detail, then.
>>32384672>>How would you feel about moving your grandfather to our new office?We have a good doctor and nurse here to look after him. I'm sure he'll have alot of company.
>>32384672>I'll have to assign you a protective detail, then.
>>32384672>>How would you feel about moving your grandfather to our new office?
>>32384672>How would you feel about moving your grandfather to our new office?"C'mon, bunch of pretty girls all living under one roof, he'll love it."
>>32384741The best outcome is that he's a cool old guy who teaches our idols a bunch of old school combat moves.
>>32384762Worse case he's a master Rossi character
>>32384780Stealing panties and molesting combat idols?I hope he can still fight for his life.
>>32384780>Worse case he's a Happosai character.Fixed.
>>32384780>steals Cole's panties>is somehow able to dodge her electrical attacksH-he's going to be Master Roshi, isn't he?
>>32384797>Rin's grandpa is Master Rossi>He notices Cole's power>He teacher her to do a Kamihamiha>We win all the fights forever!
>>32384672"How would you feel about moving your grandfather to our new office?" You ask. "We'll have a lot more space, and we can have Dr. Stiles keep an eye on him for health matters.""That's... that would work." Rin nods. "But, I'd to to put a bigger burden on you or anything like that..."That was true, if you brought Rin's grandfather over, you'd have to foot the bill for all his housing and medical costs. Then again, you're fairly sure you'd be able to absorb his upkeep into your budget.>We'll move him in the moment our new office is done.>Actually, you might be right, Rin. >Other
>>32384847>>We'll move him in the moment our new office is done.>Other: Assign Protective Detail until he moves in
>>32384847>>We'll move him in the moment our new office is done.

>>32384847>We'll move him in the moment our new office is done.The budget will be fine. Consider this a bonus Rin.
>>32384847>We'll move him in the moment our new office is done.Seconding headpats.Also, can she tell us a bit more about her grandfather.
>>32384847>>32384866This.It's not like we are getting more idols anymore

>>32384847"If it's for one of my idols, I'd pay anything." You grin as you pat Rin on the head. "We'll move him in the moment our new office is done.""T-thank you, Producer!" Rin smiles.>Rin's Morale is raised by 1!"No problem." You nod. "In the meantime, I'm still going to assign a protective detail. No more public transit. Stig will drive you to and from your house along with two of the girls." "That sounds fair." Rin nods.Now, you just had to choose which idols to keep an eye on her. Two should be a good number.>Which idols will you assign to the protection detail?
>>32385094Julie, and Melissa
>>32385094K-Zwolf in stealth mode at all times.
>>32385094Julie and Rochelle.
>>32385094Rochelle and MelissaThese two will most likely be the most lowkey about this.
>>32385115This. A team lead and our assault specialist.
>>32385094>Melissa>RochelleGood mix of cqc and range abilities between them.
>>32385115I fear Julie will be... too zealous in this. Honestly, have a hard time having her do anything other than "smash the bad guy"
>>32385135>assault specialist.Main thing is that shes the one with the shield.
>>32385190Save the innocent > Smash the bad guy feelings.
>>32385094Rochelle and Morgan
I wonder if word gets around to the other companies and their idols about how we treat our idols.I reckon they'll be envious.
>>32385272Or take advantage of it.
>>32385272The idols probably would be envious, but their producers may make up things in order to keep the idols.
>>32385272We are just a small high quality firm, others are going for large and quantity style. They other companies benefit with a larger network i guess and ability to take on more work, so it balances out.
>>32385094Ok, so just to confirm, the protective detail will be Rochelle and Julie?>Y>N
>>32385530I would prefer Melissa over Julie but I feel I'm going to be outvoted anyways.
>>32385530>NJulie is terrible for this mission. She'll turn this into a hunt for the serial killer.
>>32385530That shield is going to be useful.>>32385349YThis isnt going to impact their mission assignments right?Rochelle has descretion if she wants KZ wolf to tag along.
>>32385530>NRochelle's good, but we don't need Julie's justice fetish interfering with this mission.
>>32385530YI think Julie will be a good protector.Cole and Melissa seem far better on the offense than defense.
>>32385559Which is a test for Rochelle. She needs to reign in Julie since she's the leader. Julie's useful because of shield
>>32385530NRoro and Melissa
>>32385530Y>>32385559>>32385590How about you give her some credit mayne. She's never failed to do her assigned job before.
>>32385559That's only if she sees/hears the serial killer doing his/her thing and at the point Rochelle will take command and bag the perp.
>>32385559I think with proper coaching, this is a nonissue. We have our most experienced team leader, and Julie is loyal enough that we had ought to be able to make it work.
>>32385559You're confusing things. Rin doesnt stay in district 2 and this guard detail is to defned against rose entertainment.
>>32385660Wrong go re-read this post. >>32384150This is about the killer.
>>32385660>this guard detail is to defned against rose entertainment.wut?
>>32385660Well, they can protect her from both if things go from bad to holy shit we're screwed.
>>32385660Well, the impetus behind it becoming an issue now is the serial killer.
>>32385679The assassins were from rose entertainment. The plane incident.
I think underneath Stig's helmet is this guy.
>>32385708have you been reading this thread at all?thats not even related to anything in this thread so far
>>32385530"Okay, I'll assign Rochelle and Julie to keep an eye on you. Is that okay?""Yeah, sure." Rin nods. "I have no problems with that.""Good." You smile and nod. "Anyways, I think I've pulled you away from practice long enough. You should get going."Rin nods and heads back into the practice room leaving you alone again.>Check the shop for new purchases.>See your Demogirl>Call up Dr. Cohen about your SUV.>Other

>>32385730You decide to go see your eight and final idol. You head down to the conference room as always. However, when you open the door, you don't see anybody. You wonder if you got the time wrong when there's a sudden flash of light. Your augmetic eyes automatically darken to protect themselves before automatically readjusting and there you see a short blonde girl standing in the room."BOOM, MOTHERFUCKER! The bombergirl extraordinaire is here!" The girl cackles.Great, she was going to be one of THOSE explosives experts. You just shake your head and sigh. "So you're... 'Sparky", I presume?" You ask when you glance at her file."That's right!" Sparky nods."And why do you want to be and idol?""Seems fun." Sparky shrugs. "Plus, you know, gotta put ally m pyrotechnic skills to use somehow.""Uh huh." You narrow your eyes. "And where exactly did you learn these 'pyrotechnics'?""You'd be surprised what your local, drunk Scottish shop class teacher will show you if you buy him a couple bottles of whiskey every week."

>>32386090....why do we need to make bombs?We most likely have to disable them then make them
>>32386053>I'd prefer if you dismantled bombs.Also, Julia and Sparky as long lost sisters! GO!
>>32386053>Other>"Can you do both? Depending on the situation of course."
>>32386053>bothThis girl. I like her.Test her singing voice.
>>32386053>I'd prefer if you make bombs.No Vinnie? Dammit Merc.>>32386090My fine gentleman of African descent.
>>32386110Because we're going full Shadowrun.Every problem will be met by a troll with a satchel full of semtex and two grenade launchers.
>>32386108If there's a bomb in the office, we can just use a bigger bomb to destroy it. Duh.
>>32386053>>I'd prefer if you dismantled bombs.
>>32386053>>I'd prefer if you make bombs.>Great, she was going to be one of THOSE explosives experts.You can't handle the awesome.
>>32386053>>32386124This man stole my gif.
>>32386127That's ridiculous most of the missions we had we did not need explosives. Dismantling them make senseIf you need your sparky blow up boner(I'm sorry for the language) at least make it flexible
>>32386053>OtherCan she handle explosive weapons, like rockets and grenade launchers?
>>32386129Both we'll lose the fucking office!
>>32386113We need to start getting into the backstories of the Slum Trio.I don't think we know what Cole's story is, nor Julie's, other than that she worked the arena. And of course Melissa has some revengence to do.
>>32386053Both.They are not mutually exclusive.If you know how to build bombs, you know how to take them apart and vice versa
>>32386169Both would be good but if we cant, have her dismantle.We can out fit her with off the shelf boom instead.
>>32386169I guess you've never played a game of Shadowrun before.
>>32386181>Not having bomb coverage in your business insurance Do you even GEICO?
>>32386181Yeah, but we'll get rid of the bomb.
>>32386186We know that the trio have no parents, I think our best bet is to ask what their earliest memories were.
>>32386053>I'd prefer if you make bombs.Let's blow some shit up
>>32386186Is it bad that im considering adopting the lot?
>>32386249They're almost of age. Even if we did adopt them, it wouldn't be for very long.
>>32386249The daughterfu is working
>>32386258They still need someone to give them away.
>>32386258Adult adoptions are a thing
>>32386186Cole is most likely someone who escaped experimentation. She hated the Tombs, but what prevented her from leaving?
>>32386215That doesn't explain anything, she was good at lobbing at making explosions.>>32386199Disabling the bomb threatening everyone seems more useful>>32386217>>32386214With rin's grandfather and losing the office.
>>32386278I pretty sure all of the tomb girls are orphans. Unless they are not, in which case we should find them to bring closure.
>>32386293Pretty sure they are.Partially explains the urge to hug them and take them home.
>>32386293>in which case we should find them to bring closure.why did I just think you meant we should fine and kill their parents so they would have closure and we could adopt them...
>>32386354...you made me seriously consider it dammmit
>>32386293That is if they need any closure at all. The parents they might have ever know is the cold dirty pavement as a father and the darkness as a mother.
Cole and julie at the very least, we're seen signs that they have no surviving family or do not know of any.At the very least I want producer to adopt the two.
>>32386325Is it just me, or is the daughterfu rising or getting more popular in media. There is Bioshock Infinite, The Last of Us, Telltale Game's The Walking Dead. Then there was Carol in the MG Hunter and now this quest. Even Magical Girl Quest Noir had daughterfu.>>32386354I left it ambiguous because it's the tombs is a fucked up place, if alive there are probably reasons why the parents are not present.Also, you have a sick mind.>>32386380As stated above, the tombs being fucked up, if alive there are probably reasons the parents are not there. If they are alive, then at least we can answer why, so it can never haunt them again.Or the girls don't really care anyways.
>Cole was kidnapped and experimented on>She doesn't remember her real parents>We finally find them>Decision on whether to tell her>Awkward reunion where she meets people who are strangers to her and they present her with a happy childhood she doesn't remember having
>>32386431I guess it's because unlike a waifu, the daughteru makes numerous people (who normally would have started wars over waifus) unite.
>>32386456yeah nah, her parents are dead or sold her to be used as an experimentshe's our daughteru now
Well, don't we know some things? Julie has someone she inherited the ideals from and the police gear. Melissa sorta had the gladiator-esque manager guy. Cole...might have been sold to some lab for experimental testing.
>>32386469Yeah, it's a nice alternative.
>>32386431Paternalism is a pretty effective device to build attachment without the inherent divisiveness of waifuing
>>32386471You don't know that.
Well I'll be it's the expy-expy at last. Yeah sooner or later she'll meet a guy named Edwin for sure.
>>32386473the doujins write themselves
>>32386469Well yea, here we had the understanding that screwing our idols would be baaad.So we daughterfy the lot of them.And waifu jenner
What would the girls benefit from accepting us as a father? They are all really really independent for the most part. They just need a mentor for professionalism and friends for socializing. Everything else, they have us, a "big brother"/"Dad wannabee".
>>32386473I would like to think that Cole's family was experimented on, but her parents helped her escape. But her parents died soon afterwards.Kinda like Tiny Tina from Borderlands.
>>32386530Cole would I think.She has this strong exterior but everytime we run near water she hides bwhind producer.Like at the park and needing producer to turn on the water.
>>32386053"I'd prefer it if you can make bombs." You say."Ahaha, sure thing, Boss!" Sparky laughs.>Sparky has learned 2 traits!>Putting the "I" in IED: Sparky is considered to have infinite explosives.>Danger What?: Sparky's explosives will very rarely cause collateral damage."Anyways, I also have to know if you can at least sing and dance." You say."Aw yeah, a bit here and there." Sparky nods.https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=dEbE3fGfF-o"That's... interesting." You frown. "Your drunk Scottish friend teach you that one, too?""How did you know?""Nevermind." You shake your head. "Unfortunately, I get the feeling that you'd fit right in with the rest of the girls. Anyways, we're a bit short on space, so you're going to have to share a room with another one of your idols for the time being. Is that fine with you?""Sure, okay." Sparky shrugs.You check your list and tentatively sign her up to be Julie's roommate. You had a distinct feeling they both would get along rather well.>Ask Sparky something else. (specify)>Check the shop for new purchases.>Call up Dr. Cohen about your SUV.>Other
>>32386566Yeah, she puts on a tough girl shell, but just wants to be a girl.
>>32386586>>Call up Dr. Cohen about your SUV.
>>32386530We could co-sign their college loans when the idol business inevitably kicks them out for being too old >>32386586>Call up Dr. Cohen about your SUV.
>>32386586>Call up Dr. Cohen about your SUV.>Check the shop for new purchases.>OtherHey, do we have any upcoming jobs?
>>32386586>Sparky is considered to have infinite explosives.>infinite explosivesGET HER A FUCKING ROCKET LAUNCHER STAT
>>32386586>Ask Sparky something else. (specify)Does she know the dangers of being an idol?Also combat experience?
>>32386586It's gonna be weird when Julie wakes up without eyebrows.
Inb4 edwin is in Project Jupiter
>>32386609>rocket launcherIt's like you don't understand the full implications of having INFINITE EXPLOSIVES.
>>32386586>Ask Sparky something elseGrenade or Rocket launcher?I think grenade launcher is better. We got many more kinds of ammo for grenade launcher, from frag and incidiary to teargas for nonlehal missions. Also, K-Zwolf has mini missiles.
>>32386609How about a grenade launcher too? A mine laying device? Claymores?Any smart bombs that limit damage against friendlies?
>>32386673I'm pretty sure rocket launchers have their own specialist ammunition as well.
>>32386488we may never know. >>32386504Waifuing Jenner is the best option around. >>32386586>Ask Sparky something else.in a pinch, could she still disable a bomb? Also, can she make other explosives the rest of us can use? like grenades for example.then>Call up Dr. Cohen about your SUV.
>>32386586>Ask Sparky something else. (specify)Can she do regular pyrotechnics for shows?
>>32386698Jenner's also the only option due to all the screen time she gets by default.... and not spending it rolling her eyes at us.
>>32386673Rocket launcher.The shop has a dual purpose one for 4k and with general dynamics sponsoring rose entertainment, we'll be seeing alot of aircraft, me thinks.
>>32386711Might as well have her check on the pyrotechnics on every show to make sure they are not rigged or sabotaged.
>>32386714The late night BBQ joint dates do count~
>>32386698She just said she could do both man, it's just that she's better at blowing shit up.
>>32386698Or we could go for Lilith
Now that you think about it, who do you think would've been the medic?
>>32386714>Lilith will never have a high opinion of usWhat do our girls say about us...
>>32386711You know that being a liscened pryotech is a 60+ hour a week job just by itself, right?We have actual, real adults to handle the real adult responsibilities.
>>32386755[any of merc's constantly recycled characters less those present here]

>>32386759"Idiot""Really an idiot""Definitely an idiot"
>>32386795>"Do you t-t-think he notices me?"
>>32386795Thankfully for P, it's possible to be a lovable moron.
>>32386759"He's a boob.""Dildo""My favorite dildo out of all of them. ...Ok, that sounded better in my head"
Falynn isnt an idolShes fair game
>>32386923Falynn is a high school girl.Like, even younger than our idols.
>>32386750Just making sure we're not locked out of both options.>>32386754I think poor Lilith would be much happier with some guy outside the showbizness. >>32386759[worry intensifies]
>>32386586"Well, that's all for now. Just report to my secretary Jenner and she'll take care of everything." You say, gathering up your papers. "Welcome aboard, Sparky.""I won't let you down, Boss!" Sparky grins.You leave the conference room and return to your office, where you pick up your phone and dial in Cohen's private line. You still had to ask him about that SUV."This Dr. Cohen.""Dr. Cohen, this is the Producer, from Clover Entertainment.""Ah, yes! What can I do for you?""Ah, well, we've been looking over the replacement SUV you provided us-""Ah yes, Neucom's most advanced model! How do you like it?""Well, it's perfectly fine. The thing is, well, we found something 'odd' about it. A missing component, if you know what I mean.""Hmmm, really?"Okay, now you know that Cohen was feigning ignorance.>roll 1d20
>>32386923Why would we go for a high-school dropout?
>>32386754I do like Lilith, but the reputation of therapists for having baggage left unresolved makes that seem a little unwise. Further , we might represent some manner of wish fulfillment to her
Rolled 6>>32386923She already has a husbando, you fool. It's Kravchenko
Rolled 1>>32386954Late but whatevs
>>32386959>>32386965>>32386970Ehhhh, Good enough? Maybe?
>>32387003Yeah. I mean we perform maintenance on the car.
>>32386923 Falynn is shacking up with Lucas anyway
>>32386954Whose fucking bright idea was this to question the firm about it?Goddamnit, Anon. The fuck?
>>32386991That's a weird way of spelling MercCommand.
>>32387024We are using it, why the fuck not? Unless you want us to exchange it in somehow?
>>32386965"Oh yes, I forgot to mention that to you, didn't I?" Cohen laughs. "It's just an upcoming feature in all Neucom vehicles. An optional add on for AI-assisted driving. You know how it's all the rage these days.""It's not normal AI-assisted driving, is it?" You raise an eyebrow."Oh dear, no. It's generations ahead of what's currently on market! I daresay, once all the kinks are worked out, we were planning on letting you be the first to test it out!"Memories of Army R&D dumping "experimental" equipment on you in the field bubbled to the surface. Could be good, could be bad. It was a mixed bag, really.>Um, thanks?>I'd rather not get involved in that sort of thing.>Other
>>32387050I don't know if you're just dumb or intentionally misreading.Why is Producer trying to wring answers out of Cohen about the (alleged) AI module?
>>32387081>Um, thanks?We have battle AIs, so civilian AIs aren't entirely unsafe.I mean, if people trust it with a gun, I can trust it with a car.
Rolled 18>>32387081>>Um, thanks?
>>32387081>Um, thanks?Are you looking to get data back?Also, what kind of kinks should we look out for?
>>32387081>>I'd rather not get involved in that sort of thing.These are the same dudes that we rescued that cube for and that freaky asshole started whispering things into it? No thanks.
>>32387104Yeah, ask this.
>>32387081Adding to myself:>>32387104Can this AI also control a vehicle turret as well?
>>32387104Privacy is overrated. Send them all the telemetry, what're you afraid of?
>>32387130An underdeveloped A.I. being allowed to control and use heavy weapons. Really now?
>>32387104This, cooperative and hopefully be responded in kind.
>>32386993Some say better late than never.I say: "fuck you for coming at all!"
>>32387081>Um, thanks?And we shall name him KITT.
>>32387359KITT and the Stig together? Aw Yea!
>>32387359and when we get a helicopter it will be named Air Wolf
>>32387359How about NEMO
>>32387390Huh, now that I think about it, ya think Stig might not be willing to share driving duties with an A.I.?>>32387408Yes, yes it will.
>>32387429The A.I. can drive while he mans the guns?
>>32387429>Yes, yes it will.and it will look like pic related
>>32387081"Kinks? What kind of kinks?" You ask."Oh, well, we just need to fine tune some behavioral issues. Nothing too serious. Just that little hump from getting over from beta to finished product!" Cohen says confidently. "And I assume you also want to pick up data from our use!""Yes, please!" Cohen says happily. "All right, I'll think about it." You say. "When are we going to receive it?""Shortly! We expect to be ready at the same time as your new office building!""Alright, thanks." You say before hanging up. Huh, that went better than expected.>Check the shop.>Get reading for the producer meeting.>Other
>>32387470Maybe, I was just thinking he might take it as a professional insult, like implying he isn't good enough by himself. Probably nothing to worry about, Stig seems like he is on the level.
>>32387518>>Check the shop.
>>32387518>Get reading for the producer meeting.>OtherAsk Jenner who is attending and what to expect?
>>32387518>>Check the shop.Time to get some guns for Sparky
>>32387518>Get reading for the producer meeting.This is very important and we should be fully ready for it.
>>32387518>Check the shop.
>>32387518>Get reading for the producer meeting.
>>32387518>Get reading for the producer meetingThis is important. I'd like to get ready for it.
>>32387518>Get reading for the producer meeting.How many people will be showing up for this? Anyone we know for sure?
>>32387518>>Check the shop.I'm hoping we can get something like this for Sparky.
>>32387561The producer of zenith for sure. And rossa.One we should look to meet with is the producer of horizon.
>>32387593Nah, we fit her with a good AR and a rocket launcher
Rolled 12>>32387518>Get reading for the producer meeting.Save the shop for the very end
>>32387518>Get reading for the producer meeting.We'll have a better idea of what we need after the meeting.
>>32387620That means never.Since there will be a surprise bombshell in the meeting snd then cliffhanger
>>32387518>Get reading for the producer meeting.>OtherBy reading up on the companies in District 2 and the companies who were affected by the murder.
>>32387640Then we'll visit the shop before the next mission.Hell, I think our funds are running low, what with new buildings, old people, and Sparky.
I wonder how the other companies if our group attends the funeral of the dead idol or if that is allowed due to the investigation, just to show our respect.
>>32387518>Get reading for the producer meeting.>>32387522another line of thought. The A.I. could help free up Stig as well. He can drive one of the cars and it can handle the other one. No need for a driver means we can pack in one more passenger as well.
>>32387660Buildings free, sparky goes into upkeep.I think we're still rocking 12-14k.But yea, lets prep. (Still wanna see the pastebin though)
>>32387685We didn't know who it was, so we probably won't be invited.
>>32387692Hmm, good point.
>>32387708Theres a reason why we trust kz-wolf so much.We gave him a specific upgrade which meant he cannot be turned.AIs can fail, cars wrecked. There needs to be a driver with each team just in case.
>>32387704Sparky needs a rocket launcher as well.Gotta abuse those infinite explosives.
>>32387734Not to mention they are giving us an incomplete product for testing.Its not fully safe yet.
>>32387613How advanced are we in terms ot tech? Why not just get an underslung mini rocket launcher for her assault rifle, like that one damned attachment in BF2142?
>>32387776The only attachment acailable to us is a shotgun module, no underslung grenade launchers yet.Theres a cylindrical drum mag grenade launcher, a dumb fire rocket launcher and a dual purpose locked on anti-armour, anti air rocket launcher currently in the shop.Im advocating the dual purpose rocket launcher.
>>32387813Can someone direct me to the last posted shop list? I can't seem for the life of me to find it.
>>32387813Personally, I would go for the grenade launcher, if we can get HEDP for it. It would work nicely for light vehicles and such. I just see it having more mileage than the dual purpose. Not counting the cost of it.
Does anyone have a link to all the lewd fics in merc's quest?
>>32387813Sounds expensive and heavy?Aren't those heavy weapons?
>>32387518You suppose you should get ready for the producer meeting. After a quick call to Jenner, you meet her in your office."Alright, so what do you need to know?" Jenner asks."Well, first of all, who's attending?" You ask."Pretty much every entertainment company of note." Jenner says. "The ones we met, like Zenith and Rose and Horizon. There will also be many more, including the big name ones.""And what are they?""Well, there's three 'MegaIdol corps." Jenner explains. "Sirius, Southern Cross, and Orion. They're the biggest and baddest, and they pretty much run the entire idol industry.""Sounds like a lot of big names." You frown."That's right. Don't expect to do much while you're there, though. It's mainly just to see what the Big Three want to do about the situation." Jenner explains further."I see." You nod."There's also the matter of an escort." Jenner says. "It's strictly not necessary, as it would be bad form to use an industry meeting as a cover for an attack, but it does give you the opportunity to show off.">I don't need to use any of my girls like eye candy.>I guess some intimidation would be nice.>Other

>>32388001Infinite explosives man, gotta abuse while we can.>>32388013My thanks kind anon.
>>32388003>I don't need to use any of my girls like eye candy.Jenner can come along I guess
>>32388003>I guess some intimidation would be nice.
>>32388003>>I don't need to use any of my girls like eye candy.My dog on the other hand...
>>32388003>I guess some intimidation would be nice.If I had to choose, Cole and Rochelle.Cole for being scary and unusually popular, and Rochelle for being our most tactical.
>>32388029It's a heavy weapon can she carry one?
>>32388003>I don't need to use any of my girls like eye candy.
>>32388003>I guess some intimidation would be nice.Melissa kinda want to get her more screen time along with getting her out some more.
>>32388003>>I guess some intimidation would be nice.Not really for the intimidation factor but more for them to see the other idols.Maybe have them meet some possible friendlies from zenith or horizon.Cole and rochelle.
>>32388058...Yes, those are all man-portable.
>>32388003>>OtherBring Jenner as intimidation and arm candy
>>32388070>Melissa recognizes someone at the meetingThat could go poorly.
>>32388086Or we finally have a lead for her?
>>32388003>I guess some intimidation would be nice.Cole?
>>32388086If you people think Julie can control herself, I think Melissa could as well.
>>32388078But it will slow her down, it's registered as a heavy weapon.
>>32388142Shes demolitions. Shes meant to xarry stuff like that.
Okay, I hate to admit it, but I kinda want to see a battle between superpowered idols.
>>32388003>I don't need to use any of my girls like eye candy.>I guess some intimidation would be nice.I don't know what should we do. If we bring any girl around, its a bit like flaunting ourselves in front of those who can screw us over. But if we Bring Rochelle and Cole, we can make this a listen and learn experience for our team leader and deputy team leader.I think going alone is best for business
>>32388142...So? She's a fucking demolitions specialist, "it'll slow her down" isn't a terribly convincing reason compared to all the advantages she gets with a heavy weapon.
To the Rochelle people. Did we not this very thread put here on guard detail? This is night meeting, probably during the time Rin is leaving the office.
>>32388152>>32388171.....why do we need a demolitions expert?Honestly I just imaged the saving private Ryan scene where a German sniper blew up a guy carrying a flame thrower.Frankly sparky with a heavy weapon makes her a target
Rolled 11>>32388213Because we hired a demolitions expert and are going to use her to blow shit up
>>32388213It's almost like we're going to need heavy weaponry to take on tougher targets.
>>32388213Well we have a demolitions expert now, might as well goddamn use her.
>>32388213>.....why do we need a demolitions expert?Makes getting into a harden emplacement a hell of lot easier and smoother. Also, having someone fully trained to handed with explosives is something that's useful overall.
>>32388213Remember the jailbreak where the idol almost shot down the pursuit planes?We'll need that sort of capability. This is cyberpunk. Anti vehicle and anti aircraft combat is a given.
>>32388250K zwolf fills that need with the heavy package. Also that was more the producer fault for not bringing back up
>>32388213It's like you don't even into Infinite Missile Works anon.
>>32388266Because short-ranged mini-missiles are going to be totally useful against anything that happens to be worth a damn or an aircraft that isn't lying still asking to get shot.
>>32388268We don't know if it's compatible. Second she is not trained in the use of heavy weaponry thus will slow her down making her a target.
>>32388266>K zwolfA bloody waste of all the other packages he has to offer. Having someone else handing anti-armor/air frees him up to re-geared for areas the girls don't cover.
>>32388286>anything that happens to be ARMORED worth a damn>>32388291It's called cover you bloody retard.
>>32388266Thats not what im getting at.If producer wasnt there, the idol would have shot the planes down and they'd have made a clean getaway.You also forget that kzwolf only had enough munitions to destroy a single armoured cehicle. Thats hardly enough.
>>32388286And sparky can handle that. Frankly from her skill set it seems like all we'll get is grenade or breaching explosives.>>32388294Like what all we use is heavy and stealth packages
>>32388291> demolitions>not trained in using explosive weapons
>>32388324Apparently in your world missiles don't count as explosive.Okay.
>>32388306It's called training in what you can or not do you bloody cunt
>>32388355Cover. Is. Not. A. Hard. Concept.
If merc could step in to clarify this shitstorm
>>32388003>>I guess some intimidation would be nice.
>reasons why Merc should never leave thing ambiguous
>>32388385I dunno.Missiles and grenades as explosive weapons seems pretttty clear cut to me
Just going to have to bear with this storm until Ace Combat Infinity finally gets launched...
>>32388366Cooperation is.she has no knowledge in melee or firearms training.>>32388338>>32388349Oh they do, but being used by a grenade launcher should be in the category of a firearm/heavy weaponry right?Look all I'm just suggesting is have her trained in using a heavy weapon before the mission?
>>32388366Actually, the best cover tends to be hard.
>>32388399When is that hitting stateside? Like time.
>>32388402>Cooperation is.she has no knowledge in melee or firearms training.I don't even know what you're talking about anymore. She's signing to be a combat idol, she's either has some experience with weapons or is going to get it very soon.>>32388404>ConceptReading comprehension man.
>>32388003"I guess some intimidation would be nice." You concede."Okay. Well, unfortunately, Rochelle and Julie are already committed to keeping watch on Rin, so they won't be available." Jenner says. "So other than them, you can bring two idols of your choice along with you.">Who will you bring?
>>32388409All I know is that it's out on the 27th.
>heavy weapons slow people down!Buy one of these, problem solved.
>>32388447Melissa and Cole
>>32388447>Cole and MelissaWould love to bring Sparky or Morgan, but Sparky's green as grass and Morgan should be stationed far away.
>>32388447Cole and Rochelle
>>32388447Cole and Melissa.I know Melissa will catch trouble, so let's tell her to be cool no matter what.
>>32388443Am I no longer allowed to make bad puns?
>>32388447Melissa and Morgan would be fun.
>>32388447Cole and Jenner
>>32388485I wasn't in the mood for puns anon, I apologise if you truly meant it in jest instead of mocking.
>>32388443Look at the roster stats please,sparky has dancing, singing, explosives, and defusing.All of our other girls have cooperation....melee,and firearms. All I'm asking is that if we're doing a training sessions, let it be on heavy weapons or cooperation before the bloody mission.
>>32388447Cole and morgan.I'm saying no to mel since the chance for trouble is too high
>>32388485I smiled at it. Good work.People be gettin' mad about their little girls and whatever all up in here.
>>32388447Cole for sure, dunno about the 2nd idol.
>>32388447Cole & Mel
>>32388510And Julie is totally not an issue in guard detail with her personally? Yeah fuck you too.>>32388447>Cole and Melissa.
>>32388494Sexy secretary, go! Seconding!
>>32388447Melissa and cole
>>32388497It's all cool.
>>32388503Presumably Explosives is going to cover, now I think you might think me crazy...explosive weaponry.HOLY SHIT WHO WOULDA THUNK IT?
>>32388528>personalityAnd fuck you auto correct
>>32388447Cole and Melissa, and you too
>>32388528Julie does it for fun.Revenge is not reined in easily.
>>32388447>Jenner and Lilith
>>32388573>funIt really doesn't seem that man.
>>32388599Grenades, Rockets and Missiles are explosive weaponry.This is not a hard conclusion to come to.
>>32388447>Cole and Melissa,
>>32388621But their registered as heavy weaponry in the shop
>>32388655How about an M79 Thumper? That's a grenade launcher.
>>32388655That's because they are heavy weapons as well.They fit both classifications. Jesus Christ.
>>32388655Generally because your average MANPAD is going to be taller than your average japanese girl.
>>32388447Okay, so the consensus seems to be Cole and Melissa?>Y>N
>>32388690The single-shot grenade launcher dating back to VIETNAM?Let's not intentionally nerf Marisa because of one guy's misconception of how weapon classification works.
>>32388730NI'd say no on melissa
>>32388730>Nswap melissa for Jenner
>>32388730Y, + Jenner cause we noob to corporate
>>32388706>>32388714Then in order to make sure she can use it properly then, I'm asking that we take a training sessions involving heavy weapons.Is what I'm asking hard to understand or confusing if so I apologize but before a mission, it will be better if she at least familiarize herself on heavy weapons
>>32388730I must say N on melissa
>>32388780She has the Explosives skill, SHE ALREADY KNOWS HOW TO USE IT.You took our statements so wrong that it's not even funny.
>>32388730YLets get this damn show on the road, past this stupid argument
>>32388780Lmgs a heavy weapon but melissa doesnt need heavy weapons proficiency to use it
>>32388810Because she has the prosthetic arm right?Wasn't that one of her perks?
>>32388824Her perk was that she could carry two weapons, LMGs were not specified in particular.
>>32388836>One Arm Wonder: Melissa can hold a non-heavy 2 handed weapon in her augmetic arm with no penalty.It's not two weapons, Anon. At least check the pastebin before saying something. Not that hard.
>>32388836That was Morgans perk
>>32388863She can carry a single weapon in her prosthetic arm, ergo, SHE CAN CARRY TWO WEAPONS AT ONCE. ONE FOR EACH ARM.Seriously, are you fucking autistic?
>>32388875>Russian Grit: Can carry two non-heavy primary weapons.Just to throw in support in what's being said.
>>32388793She knows how to make and use explosives, I get that. But to carry, use a weapon system that is probably much bigger then her without hindering her, doesn't count as part of the explosives category.Again don't misunderstand me, I don't mind her getting a hereafter weapon but at least lets put in a training session so she can use it properly/not hinder her
>>32388730"Okay, we'll call up Cole and Melissa. I think they should be intimidating enough." You say."All right. I'll be coming along too, for support." Jenner nods."Really?""I am your secretary, after all." Jenner says flatly. "It's my job.""Ah."A few minutes later, Cole and Melissa come down to the armor to gear up. Melissa dutifully starts putting on her gear while Cole seems to look really grumpy."Something wrong, Cole?" You ask."I'm missing my favorite show." Cole grunts."Oh? What show?" You ask curiously"The 'None of Your Damn Business' show." Cole shakes her head.You suspect it was something very silly or girly, but you decide not to say anything. You're about to go to an important meeting, after all.You all pile into the SUV, with Stig at the wheel, you in the front seat, and Jenner, Cole, and Melissa in the back. "We're going all the way to District One for this, so the trip might take a while." Jenner says as Stig fires up the engine."Ah, don't worry." You say. You then bring up the shop list to browse while you wait.SHOP LIST: http://pastebin.com/DhwzuZ0d>You currently have $11,900. Do you make any purchases?
>>32388883There's a difference between "can carry a 2-handed gun with one hand" and "can carry around 2 guns at the same time". Melissa's perk is mainly so she has a hand free to punch dudes.Quit getting so upset, man.
>>32388922She was trained by the goddamn Demoman, bullshit explosive heavy weapons weren't part of her experience.So far you've produced no evidence that she can't handle explosive weaponry apart from "Explosives skill doesn't cover explosive weapons!".

>>32388928morgan could make good use of this VISR OPTICAL ENHANCER - 2000A standard issue military visor that provides nightvision and IR vision modes, as well as realtime battlefield data projections.any one agree?
>>32388949I can get behind this
>>32388949>BALLISTIC VEST - 500Dude, get Carapace.
>>32388948Neither have you. Everything we have talked about is based on our own assumptions.I'm just asking that to cover our basis we do a training session involving heavy weapons.Better safe then sorry
>>32388949Or add in another Under slung grenade launcher for total of 7000.
Since when did we have a powered exoskeleton in shop?
>>32388949I'd vote for this if you got Marisa Carapace Armor instead of just a ballistic vest.>>32388978I'm going to stop before I pop a blood vessel. Whatever, we'll see if she needs it or not.
>>32388964I think Rochelle too. She needs battlefield data projections as field leader.
>>32388964>>32389005Regrading that...I would like to throw money at Falynn and do some R&D/make some in house gear. Mainly was thinking to do was make all (ALL) our girls full faced helmets with Oracles systems built into it. Perhaps make it like pic? Hell, if we can get a full-fledged programmer we could even do the whole HRV setup. Heh.But who the hell knows if we'll ever be able to.
>>32388949Why do we need the assault rifle?I thought we were giving her the missile launcher?
>>32388949We should buy Sparky the exoskeleton so she isn't a sitting duck on missions where she's taking the dual purpose launcher.>>32388964This is a good idea too.
>>32389041She needs something for inside work.
>>32389005>>32389024>>32388964so any one else think that VISR OPTICAL ENHANCER - 2000A standard issue military visor that provides nightvision and IR vision modes, as well as realtime battlefield data projections.would be a good buy? if so one or two? and if one who gets it?

But if you guys reeeeaaaaally think we need it, I'll give.
>>32388928Have Himawari record Cole's show and remind Cole of TECHNOLOGY
>>32389024Actually, overall that is a good idea. We need to see what kind of projects Falynn can do if we have the money.
>>32388999We had this discussion before regarding heavy armor a few threads ago
>>32389060well my vote on the subject is one for morgan.
>>32389053If we need inside work, then we'd best send other idols to do it and send her on another mission.>>32389065Do tell, because I missed it.
>>32389060Remember, we need some cash for Rin's grandfather.
>>32389060Dude that is our entire budget.....
>>32389059I suggested Rochelle.Morgan be a good idea. Does it integrate with her guns?inb4 NoScope
>>32389082Really? I thought we had 14000.I'll get rid of the grenade launchers then.>CARAPACE ARMOR - 1000>FGM-150 PILUM DUAL PURPOSE MISSILE LAUNCHER - 4000>POWERED EXOSKELETON - 3000>VISR OPTICAL ENHANCER - 2000>TOTAL: 10000
>>32389064Yeah I really want to start looking down that path because we're getting to the point where shop is going to start being worthless in my eyes for some of the things we need.
>>32389060Lets hold off the visors till the next round of missions.
>>32389079Oh yeah, we still need to cover medical expenses...
>>32389095Me here, please decide whether you want the visor or not so I can finalise this.
>>32389087dude morgan is like 420 blaze it no scope triple collateral right?but ya if morgan cant use it with scopes then nno but you dont put your eye right on the scope any way so i figured it would be fine.
>>32389077Currently Julie can wear it without it hindering her since she is skilled in heavy armor. Giving Melissa heavy armor will slow her down.We avoided giving the others capsarace armor for this reason
>>32389095The grenade launchers are more important honestly.
>>32389100This might be a good point. See our next missions before going shopping.
>>32389077You know every Combat engineer is rifleman as well right? And sometimes you don't have a choice in who gets to go where.
>>32389095Downgrade the carapace armor to a ballistic vest so whoever's wearing the exoskeleton has some protection and I'll second this.
>>32389095>not buying a weapon beyond a manpadWorth people I swear to god.
>>32389095Do we need the exoskeleton?
>>32389095Ballistic vest instead of carapace armor
>>32389116Well I was thinking it integrates with guns so it gives you a crosshair and you can hipfire guns, but yeah whatever.
>>32389118I was going to give it to Sparky, considering that she's already got the ballistic vest.Then I realise that the exoskeleton can only support ballistic vests, silly me.>>32389149Can Sparky support two weapons at once?>BALLISTIC VEST- 500>FGM-150 PILUM DUAL PURPOSE MISSILE LAUNCHER - 4000>POWERED EXOSKELETON - 3000>VISR OPTICAL ENHANCER - 2000>TOTAL: 9500
>>32389095Carapace to ballistics, drop the exoskeleton
>>32388949Putting my support for this. I covers are needs more at this time.
>>32389126>>32389149Just give her that spare AK that's been sitting in our armory, we have plenty of dedicated gunmen already.
>>32389161I'd say drop the exoskeleton.
>>32389157We have space ballistic vests. We used to equip our girls with that.
>>32389161No she can't that is moria perk and keep the exoskeleton
>>32388928Okay, so this appears to be the most popular choice.>BALLISTIC VEST - 500>FGM-150 PILUM DUAL PURPOSE MISSILE LAUNCHER - 4000>M55 ASSAULT RIFLE - 1000>UNDERSLUNG GRENADE LAUNCHER - 500 x2Unless people want to add VISR and the exoskeleton as well?

>>32389095What are we going to use the exoskeleton for? Additional strength? Pretty much only one of our idols uses melee if they and she has a cybernetic arm
>>32389167>giving her a worthless weaponWe have the money to spend fuck if you really don't want to spend that much get a goddamn SMG then.But don't give her that damn AK when everyone else is using the M55. That's straight bullshit
>>32389181MERCCLARIFICATION.Can sparky carry the gun and rocket launcher at the same time?
>>32389181I'd say that this is good for now.
>>32389181id like to add it but majority vote and all
>>32389184Well considering Sparky is lugging around a huge Missile Launcher with tons of ammo...
>>32389181Take out the assault rifleMelissa can't carry two weapons
>>32389181Yes. I'm fine with that. Hold off on teh Exo and VISR for later.
>>32389183We have space ballistic vests. Don't need more.Also, I think get the grenade launcher. Exploit the unlimited explosions and less friendly fire.
>>32389193Yes, at a slight weight penalty, of course.I should probably clarify that Morgan's Russian Grit skill allows her to carry two guns without penalty.Also, strength does not only translate to physical attacks, but how much you can carry, as well.
>>32389202it ain't for Melissa...
>>32389184Carrying around heavy weapons, duh. The current modern analog for the dual purpose launcher weighs something like 70lbs loaded and that's only with -one- missile, that's a ton of weight for a teenaged girl to be running around with.
>>32389181I think we're going to need more time Merc.
>>32389205>spare ballistic vestNo. No we dont.>>32389213Then its good.
>>32389190We're on a budget, and we added rin's grandfather to it.
>>32389181>>32389213Then we're good to go with that setup.

>>32389227He's being added to the upkeep cost. Which gets removed automatically from our base pays. The money we have is to be spent.
>>32389236And of fucking course, I accidentally add the visor.We're going to need that extra strength for Marisa.>BALLISTIC VEST- 500>FGM-150 PILUM DUAL PURPOSE MISSILE LAUNCHER - 4000>POWERED EXOSKELETON - 3000>TOTAL: 7500
>>32389236We have enough sensors for now though. Drop the senors but keep the rest
>>32389201Point taken, but we should hold off for the moment.
>>32389213If it's only a slight penalty, we can always buy the exoskeleton later. We might even be able to use KZ-Wolf as pic related to offload some of the weight during the interim.
>>32389245You don't blow all the money in one sitting though.
>>32389181This is good.
>>32389251Yeah, that was an accident.>>32389252We need that Exoskeleton or our heavy weapons specialist is going to be pretty slow. Plus she'll get an even bigger penalty if she takes an assault rifle as well.She kinda needs it honestly.Plus, I think we can work with the latest budget.
>>32389213Merc, would giving Sparky the M66 SMG decrese that penalty or get rid of it?
>>32389250And again the lack of a primary weapon of any kind makes this shit. The Missile Launcher is a support weapon. She's not going to popping that thing off every second in combat.>>32389263Is that all you got? Because the first list that got added is cheaper and got us more than this shit this >>32389250
>>32389281Carrying two guns will still cause a penalty. We're giving sparky a huge heavy weapon and you want to give her another one besides that.?
>>32389286I was assuming we go for the AK.But whatever.>BALLISTIC VEST- 500>FGM-150 PILUM DUAL PURPOSE MISSILE LAUNCHER - 4000>POWERED EXOSKELETON - 3000>M55 ASSAULT RIFLE - 100>TOTAL: 8500
>>32389286We have a spare AK we can give her, just buy an underslung launcher for it and we're golden.
>>32389302Merc already said slight penalty.
>>32389302yes because she ain't going to be using the big ass rocket launcher as a primary weapon in combat...she's going to be completely useless when she needs to actually shoot someone or defend herself because all you want to arm her with is a rocket launcher
>>32389315Except we're giving her a heavy weapon on top of that.I'm guessing the end result isn't going to be slight.
>>32389306>>32389310And again, it would be bullshit to give her that AK when everyone else is using modern tech in the M55.
>>32389322He said BOTH with a slight penalty.

It was a large, innocuous office building, like the dozens of others surrounding it. You see a long line of vehicles along the entryway as well, as various producers and their idol escorts exit. "All right, the two of you remember, we're not here to fight. You're here to put on a strong face for our company. But under no circumstances do you start hostilities. Is that clear?" You say to Cole and Melissa."Understood." Melissa nods."Whatever." Cole shrugs.Satisfied, the four of you exit while Stig stays with the vehicle.

>>32389181Merc, I'm still supporting this lost over all the other ones that's been posted here.

>>32389323>PROFICIENCIES: Singing 1, Dancing 1, Explosives 3, Defusal 3She doesn't have ANY firearms skill, giving her a fancy top of the line assault rifle is pointless. Glorious surplus Russian technology is plenty fine for suppressive fire.

>>32389357Zenith>>32389358You have, the rest (or most of us) have not.
>>32389339>>Look for Horizon Entertainment.
>>32389322you are fucking retarded, we're not giving her a rocket launcher on top of two gunswe're giving her a gun on top of a rocket launcher giving her a slight penalty
I hope we get to meet with both Zenith and Horizon
>>32389363But we love looking at the shop
>>32389397Presumably giving her Heavy Weapon already gives her a penalty.It's right there in the word, HEAVY WEAPON.
>>32389421Don't. Bother I have been arguing this point for ages.They will just argue its in explosive so it will be fine
>>32389397Not to nitpick, but it's a missile launcher, not a rocket launcher.
>>32389433Thank you for completely missing my point.My point wasn't that she can't use the Missile Launcher, it's that it'll slow her down without that exoskeleton.
>>32389421>>32389193>Can sparky carry the gun and rocket launcher at the same time?>>32389213>Yes, at a slight weight penalty, of course.
>>32389443Alright, fine, I concede.
>>32389442And you have missed mine since it is a fucking missile launcher it will be a heavy weapon to begin with and will slow her down. And yet you making her carry a assault riffle as we'll with the load.What happen to your blood pressure?
>>32389454Training does not magically make you better at carrying missile launchers anon.
>>32389462But carrying heavy shit and knowing how to carry it to lessen the burden is.
>>32389472And you expect one training session to solve that?That's absolutely precious.
>>32389462yeah it kind of does...
Guys, enough is fucking enough. Drop it. We're pass the the point where it matter anymore.Good fucking lord.
>>32389339You decide to go look for Hillman, the producer for Zenith Entertainment. He seemed to be a decent enough fellow, and it seemed that he wasn't too eager to step on your toes like DeReosa would, which was a big plus. You manage to catch sight of him in the crowd, flanked by a dour looking, black haired girl and a cheery blonde with a big red bow in her hair."Hillman." You slide in next to him. "Good to see you again.""Oh, Producer!" Hillman gives a slight grin. "Things going well for you, I suppose?""Well enough." You say simply. "Hm, well, for better or worse, it looks like your company is rising up in the world." Hillman nods. "I've been hearing whispers about Clover as of late. Which could be very good... and very bad.""Thanks for the heads up.">Introduce your idols.>Talk to him about DeRosa.>Talk to him about the serial killer.>Other

>>32389484>Introduce your idols.>Talk to him about the serial killer.>>32389476I'm hoping she can get heavy weapons 1, in her skill set so at least she can start. We have to start somewhere.She can shoot a gun either, or fight melee. So we need to train her with stuff she is carrying
>>32389484>>Introduce your idols.Might as well, we've already broken into their systems to learn more about theirs.
Rolled 65>>32389484>>Introduce your idols.
>>32389484> Introduce your idols> Talk to him about the serial killer
>>32389504I'm pretty that's not how it works.
>>32389520How does it work, please inform me. I'm being sincere right now since right now this shit is driving me up a wall.
>>32389484>Introduce your idols.>Talk to him about the serial killer.Things we should do and the why we're here.
>>32389528Explosive weapons, concern explosive weaponry. There is no catchall heavy weapons skill. And I seriously doubt that one training session would solve all of this.Otherwise Marisa would know how to handle machine guns, which doesn't fit her theme at all.
>>32389544But her skill set does not say explosive weaponry it just says explosives. We have done one session of coordination training with our idols and they managed to get coordination 1and Melissa firearms 1.The one training lesion won't solve the whole problem but will give us heavy weapons 1 which will decrease the problems relating to this
>>32389544>>32389578>ambiguous wordingThe only ONLY way this is solved is Merc just fucking clarify what it all covers. Because at this point it's nothing more than people guessing.
>>32389578Jesus Christ, do I have to spell it out for you?Explosives concern explosives, this also concerns explosive weaponry, it literally as simple as that.>>32389603>Merc clarifying anything.You must be new here.
>>32389612>You must be new here.I got him to clarify the dice rules in Gundam Quest.
>>32389612I fucking get that part but what can a 17 18 year old girl fucking carry a 70lb or more missile launcher? She knows how to make the explosives and time it fine. But to actually use a firearm or carry a heavy weapon is a different subject.
>>32389649Firearms and Missile Launchers are completely different classes of weapons, and you're silly to think that they aren't.
>>32389649>>32389443>slight penaltyCarrying that missile launcher apparently isn't hard.
>>32389657But it's fucking classified as a heavy weapon in the shop! That means she is still lugging a fucking heavy piece of equipment.
>>32389649Did you miss the part where she was trained by a black scottish cyclops? I doubt he'll have any compunctions showing Marisa the ropes of explosive weaponry.>>32389669>>32389665Slight penalty.I'm just going to keep repeating this.
>>32389675I aware, knowing tgs luck, people that defend it is just a slight penalty will have it bite them in the ass when it comes with a dice roll
>>32389701It's /tg/dice period. It won't matter at the end of the day.
>>32389701>people that defend it is just a slight penalty will have it bite them in the ass when it comes with a dice rollso because you're annoyed at a vague situation you can't impact or get clarification on, you want to fuck yourself over to spite other anons...christ thats petty
>>32389701If you're that butthurt about it we'll buy the Exoskeleton next time.
>>32389711That's not me.
Jesus christ, /tg/Heavy weapons: not even once.
Threads on page 8.Looks like we ain't getting anything done this thread.>>32389717does not matter if its you or not, the dice biting ANYONE in this quest in the ass bite you in the ass.
>>32389721We' hit autosage a long time ago, it's not like the argument caused it.

>>32389711The whole argue,to is petty since we're going off in assumptions and wording, fine we have a 'slight' penalty, alright how will this effect us later on. I don't know so let's just drop it candy cut off with the name calling,and insults
>>32389751It gives them something to do until merc updates.
>>32389769How about this instead... We talk about projects that we can have Falynn do. Like up here: >>32389024Seems like better time spent anyways.
>>32389791Piston dicks for KZ-Wolf
Quick question why did we need the two underslung grenade launchers?
Quick question, are the marker cartridges that Morgan's BFG fires simple GPS tracking devices, or can they synergize with Sparky's launcher to get precise firing solutions? Looking at some of the countermeasures we can buy for our own vehicles makes me a little worried that the basic lock-on can be easily defeated.
>>32389484"Well, Hillman, here are two of my idols, Cole and Melissa." You say, motioning to your girls. "Hello." Melissa says politely."Yo." Cole says nonchalantly."Ah, well, here are my two main idols, Kaleidoscope and Heartlancer." Hillman says, motioning to his own girls."Hey!" Heartlancer says happily."Hi..." Kaleidoscope mumbles. She doesn't seem to be the talkative type."Those aren't their actual names, are they?" You ask."Oh no, they're just stage names." Hillman grins. "Only used when they're on the job.""I see." You nod. "I suppose you've heard of the recent killings?""Oh yes, terrible thing." Hillman's face screws up in a mix of concern and disgust. "Idols already have so much to worry about, and now we have a killer with no sense of ethics or morals running amok.""Do you have any idea of who it might be?" You ask."Not really." Hillman shrugs. "Could be a disgruntled fan, or just some obsessed nut. If we knew, then we wouldn't have any trouble catching them now, would we?""You have a point, there.""WILL ALL PRODUCERS PLEASE REPORT TO THE MEETING ROOM." You hear the intercom blare."Well, that's our cue!" Hillman gives you a quick nod before rushing off. You follow him to to the main meeting room and take a seat among all of the assembled producers. At the head of the room ,you could see three rather elderly men sitting in large chairs overlooking the room.(cont)
>>32389802"They're the producers for the Big Three." Jenner whispers. "They basically run the entire industry.""We will now call this meeting to order!" The Sirius Producer coughs. "The sole item on our agenda today is this idol killer rampaging throughout the city!""We of course cannot rely on the police to solve this problem in a timely manner." The Southern Cross Producer adds. "Which means that we have no choice but to take this matter into our own hands.""We have decided to put a bounty on the head of this idol killer." The Orion Producer speaks up. "The entertainment company that brings back the idol killer, dead or alive, will be rewarded handsomely by our sponsors.""But beware, one of the idols killed was a combat idol, so do not assume this idol killer does not possess combat ability." The Sirius Producer warns. "Whether you decide to pursue this bounty or not, this is what we have decided. This meeting is now adjourned!"With that, the three producers' chairs slide back and out of sight. The meeting room suddenly explodes in conversation."Hm, a reward from the Big Three themselves? It's a tempting offer." Hillman muses. "Will you try and go after this killer?">Why not?>I'm a Producer, not a policeman.>Other
>>32389802>three rather elderly men sitting in large chairs overlooking the roomThis sounds awfully familiar...Tribunal, is that you?
>>32389814>>Why not?>>Wanna try this together?
>>32389791But their connected to the harbinger system I which any data they collect during missions can be sent to them during battle. Rochelle did this to find the drug dealer by asking Julie and Melissa to send the data to her.Something like That, I'm not sure we need
>>32389798Rochelle/ColeorRochelle/Sparky>>32389814>Why not?Depending on what that reward is, see if he wants to try and work together on this. Might be a nice test run to see if we can work together vs Rose.
Rolled 90>>32389814>>Why not?
>>32389814>>Why not?>>OtherAlso good experiance for the combat idols to see their instructor do it right.
>>32389814>>Why not?>think you can handle it girls ?
>>32389824>>32389814Heh, I kinda like this.
>>32389798For added assault capability not needing the grenade launcher.We can give it to cole, julie or Rochelle to support their advance.
>>32389814>OtherIf we get the chance. Our manpower might be a bit stretched because of this so we should only try if he or she is discovered near us. However we should inform Hillman that if he want's to tag team to deal with this guys we're fine with that.
Is the reward a wish?
>>32389865>julieShe's using M66 SMG. I'm not sure if that will work with her. But Cole, Rochelle, and Sparky will (since we did pick up the AR).
>>32389870The question is can we split the reward in the first place or is it something that cannot be shared? Secondly, if we can share it, how do we divide it?
>>32389882Well, that'll depend on whether the Missile Launcher can do any anti-infantry work I guess.I mean I doubt it, but we might as well find out first.
>>32389882We should have her train first to at least give her the firearms and coordination skill set our other idols have
>>32389882Oh wait, my bad then.Was already hesitant on choosing her since she already has her shield to deal with.>>32389885>how to share50/50 I guess. If we both work and fight together.
>>32389814>>32389824If we do decide to go after the fucker, working together with other companies and splitting the reward and limelight is a good idea to improve rep and alliances. Plus it is safer and more likely to produce results faster.So yeah.>Why not?>Wanna try this together?
>>32389897As much as I like 50/50, it may create problems if for example, our idols are the shocktroops sent in first while the other guys sneak in and deal the killing blow.
>>32389814>>32389863This ask Cole and Mellissa if they can handle it. Boost their confidence a bit
>>32389885Difficult to say if it's monetary or something else. If it's money or territory, we might be able to talk it over, but we'll see what happens.
>>32389814>Orion>Sirius>Southern CrossStar formations, eh?. Two constellations and a star cluster. Very interesting choice of names.>>32389824This guy is right on the money.
>>32389885Depends on what the reward is really. >>32389893I have my doubts for it as well considering the real jalvin fires shaped charge HEAT. At least from last I heard of it.
I get that you guys want to work together with magical girl company but can we at least find out what the reward is?Also we don't even know if he wants to risk his idols in this bounty?I'm not saying no, but just consider his side I guess
>>32389936I agree with finding out the reward first before making plans. But if it is something we can split with easy. We can offer and he's welcome to say no.
>>32389814"Why not?" You shrug. "Actually, you wanna try this together?""Interesting..." Hillman blinks. "It WOULD increase our chances on finding the killer.""So that's a yes, then?""Why not. We'll give it a try." Hillman shakes your hand. "You understand, this means that we might have to run joint exercises or something like that.""Yeah well we can hammer out the details later." You say. "And after we get settled into our new HQ. I don't anybody is going to find this killer anytime soon, anyways.""All right, I'll keep it in mind." Hillman nods. "Until next time, Producer."With that, Hillman and his escort make their exit. You're about to leave as well when you catch sight of DeRosa.>Confront him about the attempt on Rin's life.>Leave him alone.>Other
Does DeRosa know that we suspect them? If not, how about we "work together" for a bit. Pretend to still be looking for suspects.
I'm kind of curious in seeing the horizon company producer. I want to work with villain in glasses
>>32389962Say Merc, can the Pilum do any anti-infantry work?
>>32389962>>OtherFuck himLOOK FOR HORIZON PRODUCER
>>32389928Dont tell me this is related to fist of the north star
>>32389962>Leave him alone.Not the time or the place. Besides, as long as he doesn't know what we know, we can play the fool.
>>32389962>>Confront him about the attempt on Rin's life.
>>32389962Rather go look for the Horizon producer.
>>32389962>>32389966This we have a plan, if they fuck with us we capture his idols that try to attack us
>>32389964>>32389966Supporting. Want to clarify that no hard feelings about what happened, and we explicitly held back from involving our idols to reduce our involvement in the matter.
>>32389978>>32389966Crap, did we give condolences to their lost idols?
>>32389965Things that are able to explode tanks and planes tend to do very well against people as well.
>>32389988Did he lose idols?
>>32389987We'll I just want to find out if their idols are okayAlso to make the rosa producer thinks we didn't know we did it but when we do make a plan for district 2, he'll be in for a surprise
>>32390001If I remember correctly, we only captured 2 idols. The rest died when the VTOL was shot down.
>>32389997So it has MPWH then?Considering the fact a HEAT missile isn't really that effective on targets in open areas and such.
>>32389962It wasn't really anything personal, I hope, it was more of a professional thing. I mean, it kinda was personal, but really we are in the mercenary business and that kinda shit he pulled off is normal everyday stuff in the life of a person who makes a living killing people and shit.Keep it professional but don't just dismiss he fact that it happened. I mean, with the recent news and serial killer everyone is trying to work together, I assume, so it should lessen any further plans he has while this serial killer is about. >Leave him alone>Give him knowing look or nod, "I am watching you fucker, but we got bigger shit to deal with right now."
>>32390010We don't know if they died.we assumed they escaped
>>32390010No they didnt die.Their rescue target died. The VTOL was otherwise empty when found.
>>32389997Excellent.I guess we won't need that underslung grenade launcher on Marisa after all.>>32390021Probably has a modified AA missile or something.
>>32390008>Now that they know our plan, they will plan around our plans. And so we shall in turn plan around the plan that they are planning around our plan!
>>32390023Trying to kill each other is pretty personal and outside the standard rules of engagement.
>>32390025>>32390028My shadowruns tell me that they pulled a Bane and faked a body on the crashed aircraft.
>>32389962Hm, maybe you can find the Horizon producer. You at least wanted to touch base with him, considering both your companies crossed paths.>roll 1d20
>>32390008>>32390041Actually, there might be a good point in this. If he knows that we know, then he has incentive to finish the job. Otherwise, if he doesn't know, then he might just leave it be.
>>32390060So we run into Rose anyways.
>>32390060So who the hell do we bump into instead?
>>32390060Ok, what's the worst that can happen?
>>32390071Because you touch yourself at night.
>>32390044Depends on the person really.
Rolled 5>>32390076The muderer
>>32390060Jesus Christ man,
>>32390086Wait, we're in an idol conference. That would be really stupid. Or really smart, a producer murder hiding in plain sight.
>>32390098The difference between an idiot and a tactical genius is very slim...
>>32390098I bet it is DeRosa himself. He is kinda creepy.
>>32390112Well the murder DID take place around District 2...
>>32390060Dice biting us in the ass, the dice have been very cruel since we have picked up Morgan
>>32390102>>32390112Stabbing an idol right now would cause massive chaos. None of these producers know each other, and no that will not work together.
>>32390123The dice are always cruel.
>>32390123Dice have always been cruel, anon.
>>32390060So, do you want to STAR POWER this or not?Your current count is 2.>Y>N
>>32390123At least Morgan didn't flub her shots this time.
Rolled 15>>32390140No cat?
>>32390140>NWe have more important things to worry about unfortunately.
>>32390132>and no that will not work together.
>>32390140NTake the hit
>>32390076DeRosa, maybe.Or maybe this.>>32390086>>32390140>N
>>32390155no one will work together out of suspicion.It's 4:54 am here, I'm getting tired.
>>32390140>NWhat's the worst that can happen? Did we accidentally open the door leading to the cybernetic attack bear enclosure?
>>32390140>YI rather not make a shitty impression
>>32390086We can't possibly do that, it would end it too quickly and create a shortcut.
>>32390165>What's the worst that can happen?
>>32390168>shitty impressionAnon, we're not even going to find the guy. We're most likely running into someone else.Or just flat out not finding anyone.
>>32390140Unfortunately, you can't seem to find the producer for Horizon anywhere. However, as you search for him, you accidentally bump into DeRosa rather hard."Ah, Producer." DeRosa gives you a predatory smile. "How are things going for you lately?"You see his two escort idols take up positions at his sides.>Feign ignorance. You're doing pretty well.>Let him know that you're on to him.>Ignore him.>Other
>>32390187>>Other"It's been smooth flying in clear skies these days."
>>32390187>>Let him know that you're on to him.we should give his Idols a little toy model of a jet engine
>>32390187>Feign ignorance. You're doing pretty well."It's nice to meet you, but unless you have business, I'm busy at the moment."
>>32390187This nigga...>Feign ignorance. You're doing pretty well.Maybe with something like this:>>32390196but a bit less obvious.
>>32390187>other>offer him a hand shake, rather strong hand shake>Feign ignorance. You're doing pretty well.
>>32390187>>Feign ignorance. You're doing pretty well.
>>32390187>>Other"Fine fine. You?"
>>32390187>>32390196WHY THE FUCK NOTBut add a >"But still bad news to hear about fellow idols getting hurt and killed out there."Or something along those lines, to really just point out, "Fuck you, I know, but lets deal with this shit with the serial killer first before I pound your face in.
>>32390248"What kind of sick man would hurt young girls?"
>>32390263I like it.
>>32390248>>32390289If I wanted to troll him, I would invite him you work with the MG group to find the killer.after all, there is no reason to mistrust each other. We are totally not going to stab each other in the back
>>32390248>>32390263>>32390320YES, do all three.
>>32390187"Oh, nothing much. We're doing pretty well, actually." You shrug nonchalantly. "But man, those poor girls, you know? What kind of sick freak goes around killing innocent girls like that? Absolutely shameful."You see the corners of DeRosa's mouth twitch at the remark, as if he's unsure of whether or not you're on to him or not. You continue to let him stew in the uncertainly."Anyways, I have business to take care of, being a producer and all. Maybe we'll see each other again someday." "Yes.... maybe." DeRosa nods.You then spin on our heel and walk away, Cole and Melissa in tow."That was a pretty ballsy move." Jenner sighs."What, teaming up with Zenith or baiting DeRosa like that?" You ask."Both.""Yeah, well, sometimes it's just one of those days." You laugh.>And that's it for tonight! We'll be back to our regular schedule this week, which means Gundam Build Fighters on Friday and Cyberpunk Idols and Saturday!
