Welcome, this is the thread for Operation Storm Watch, a side mission in the PACYOA:Teamwork Edition series.“Alright guys, I’m picking you all up on comms so must mean you’re close. You guys are dropping down right about in the center of Naperville, it’s on your map of it’s any indication. By the looks of things, the tornado will go straight through Naperville to Chicago if you don’t move, though I’d rather you guys advance in and take care of the problem. No, we’re not sure how big or small whatever is causing this tornado is.”“I came over here a bit early though… got even more bad news. Turns out there’s apparently some ground forces here too, from what I can tell they’re also amplifying the storm. Perhaps even needed to get the tornado working or something, I don’t know. From what I can guess, I'd estimate about 3 or 4 suits, no larger than a heavy, running or driving around here. You guys have two objectives for this mission, eliminate whatever’s causing that tornado, and eliminate the enemy ground forces that are enabling them to do that thing… chances are they’re all scattered around the area, so no, things won’t be easy for us as usual. Time to play a bit of hide and seek I guess.”“…Oh, and one last thing, there may be civilians around in some of the areas, and local law enforcement has the vague specs for your suits to keep in mind. While this may be a bit much, there’ll be some cops and the like here to help what little they can. Don’t expect much from them, but yea. Also, this means you guys can’t go around stealing all the cars like in LA, sorry.”With that, the dropship sets the team down and opens up. Your call as to which part of the mission you want to go towards, but the end goal is "Keep Chicago from getting demolished", tornado or otherwise.>Mission will begin in 30 minutes, give or take.
>>34231093"As usual, got the program and hotkeys setup for everybody. It's got a bit of a delay time though, so don’t go using it while you’re needing to dodge bullets or something."There also will be a “take 10” system in effect for this mission. On non-stressful situations, you can automatically be 30 away from target, and roll a d20 to modify it closer to ‘target’. (Yes I know, tech rolls are ‘middle’, whatever.). Taking 10 will make it easier to succeed in most cases(easy rolls will be pretty much impossible to fail even), but you cannot use it for dodging, attacking, while being attacked, or if the action would end up putting you through danger.Basic actions (moving, communicating, observation) will all be success only, so basic actions will happen successfully almost always. There will be three major categories for non-basic actions, DEXY, COMBAT, and TECH. You can only perform ONE TYPE OF ADVANCED ACTION per turn. Rolling DEXY for dodge is NOT an 'advanced action' cost or use unless it is stated otherwise.Basic actions include just moving around not caring about stealth, releasing out drones for activation, activating camouflage(not the stealth roll), using suit abilities such as bullrush or celerity, and reloading(Hah, who does that anymore...)DEXY refers to actions such as melee or dodge rolls, and other checks towards maneuverability, agility, and so on. DEXY uses a 'closest to 1' roll on a D100.COMBAT refers to the act of shooting ranged attacks (NOT melee attacks), plain and simple. COMBAT uses a 'closest to 100' roll on a D100.TECH refers to anything else really, mostly it's using or fixing your suit's systems. Tech uses a 'closest to 50' roll on a D100.

>>34231140>>34231201>Giant, Kes, you're in. Boone and Silver didn't show up.>Weaver, if you read this, you're technically allowed in as a 9th slot that arrived late."...Also, before you ask how you guys are ment to take on a tornado, don't worry, I installed a little something into those of you that don't have flight.">Those without Levitation or Flight: You have Jump Jets. You can spend a turn to jump into melee range of a target (going at 2x speed at top speed from the start), or jump if you've been knocked into the air. Has a 2 turn cooldown, and while in the air from the jump, you have a -5 penalty towards dodge rolls due to having no real air maneuverability."Right... move out, folks. The tornado'll be on your position in about 30, but I'd like if you guys went out and stopped it while it was still around those farm fields. Also keep in mind those ground targets."
>>34231748"Aye Zipline we're on it"
>>34231748"...Did you tinker with my suit while I wasn't watching?"
Rolled 31 (1d100)>>34231748Awesome, i'll use my radio-transmitter to see if local cops need help with those civilians or not.Don't know if I need to roll tech for it still.
>>34231748A slick Z-Type drives up to the group, handling the lack of road easily. "Hey guys, what'd I miss?" Silver says over the comms.
>>34231809"Less tinker, more like strapped it on. Speaking of which, careful with those jets, while I'm certain they can't blow up dangerously, I doubt they'll stay that functional if they take much damage." >>34231849>No roll needed for a radio.You hear a fair amount of things. Some tornado warning signals and messages, a few cops chatting about getting people out of the tornado's path, some ambulance sound traffic... Right now there's not any specific need for a certain area to be helped, but then again they already seem to have their hands full, if anything else crops up or they didn't notice is going on, they likely won't be able to do much for it.
Rolled 47, 87, 32, 88 = 254 (4d100)>>34231851>Rolling to activate Sonar, Thermal, Scrambler, and Tremorsense (if it works through the car)
>>34231851"Better get that expensive car out of here before the tornado tosses it away."
>>34231851"Damnit Silver I said not to bring that... well, whatever. Not my fault if that gets tossed away by a tornado then." Zipline said.>Everyone who has said they're in is still in, I was 'secretly' accepting one late applicant(or two reserve members if 7/8 filled) and weaver or train if they called.>Also, your build would be nice to have Silver, link or posted is fine.
>>34231851Cael walks up to the engineer, stretching a hand. "Not much. You just missed them telling us we're gonna have to face a tornado, but by now?" Cael shrugs. "Business as usual, I guess.
>>34231913Either that or one of us shoots it
>>34231913He gives a smile, even though noone can really see it. "Don't worry, I intend to stay well out of the line of fire... Speaking of which, any fortresses that'll let me use them as a hacking platform?">>34231944The side door opens up. "Hop in. I've got a plan involving National Reserve caches and I don't want to do all the lifting myself.">>34231939Finally, over radio, he says, "So, Zip, mind patching me through to whoever's in charge of the police here?"
>No room left for a cavalry member, eh?
>>34231904"Strapped on? When did you even mess with my suit? I don't feel comfortable with this."
I had something come up in real life but I'm here. Tell me if I can be drop-poded or not.
Rolled 29, 42 = 71 (2d100)>>34231904Ok, gonna jump and use my grappling hook+jump jets to the top of nearest roof. Rollin tech to use Radar and Thermal vison to get a sense of my surroundings and find those ground forces.

Rolled 85 (1d100)>>34232008"Whatever, might as well make use of it. I'm going to punch a tornado in the face, see you later guys."Turning on thermal vision because why not.
>>34232100"I'll come with you, and don't worry, I'll leave the disarming to you this time."Moving to follow Fort
>>34232024>>34232039>>34232100>>34232121"Keep moving guys i'll keep you covered"
Rolled 64 (1d100)>>34231904Eyes activates her flight jets and tries to get a visual on the tornado with Hawkeye."A tornado huh? Anyone seen anything like this before?">Tech Roll, Engineer AI
>>34231991"Kinda. Only got vague clearance by ending up slipping my real name to some friends, having a lot of cops vouch for you and being offering to help with way too big of a problem works, but is already pretty iffy. Other issue is they're busy as hell, what do you need though?" >>34232005>At this point no. But if you can get the other cavalry on call, that'd be good, I got a mission for 8 coming up after Lurker in mind...>>34232008"Don't ask, technically was yet wasn't me anyway." she said simply.>>34232024Your radar picks up... a lot of stuff, cars and vehicles, many parked, others zooming around and are emergency vehicles or something. You try to fine tune it to pick up anything either too small or too big to be a car, but no dice as of yet. The thermal scan however, shows some more promises, cars are one signal. Suits give off a bigger one, and that heavy-scale thermal signature is probably that. As for civilians... well, most seem to be evacuating from what you can see on thermals.>>34232100>>34232121Your thermals don't really give you too good of data. Stuff is hot, stuff is cold, and you can still tell the shape of stuff.... you also see that tornado in the distance approaching you guys.>Here's some music for if/when you guys decide to jump into that tornado. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=b3RjnANAYe8>>34232086Hawkeye. Never trust it.... the damn thing doesn't blow up, but it malfunctions and acts up, locking itself to a standard range of view, it'll need a tech roll to get this working properly, otherwise consider it basically normal sight.
>>34232180"Nothing much. Just ask if there's still any National Guard depots. I need things that go boom. Alot of things."
Rolled 17 (1d20)>>34232180I take 10 with my Hawkeye. Can I see any enemy suits?
"So do we have a plan? Or are we going for Armour Corps gold standard and just wreak things until we wreak the correct thing?" He adjusted his power fists over his suit as they crackled to life. "Because gold standard has yet to fail us."
>>34232219"A fair amount of that stuff is probably looted... but here, hang on..." she mused, sending him coordinates to... one of those big bulk-item purchase stores? "I'm pretty sure you can get some propane tanks or the like... I don't really trust you with anything bigger around here, especially against a tornado."
>>34232273"I can't believe you're going along with that crazy plan. He's just going to spread a bunch of explosives around the area."
>>34232222From inside Silver's car? You spot Silver, and that's about it. From what Turtle detected there was one heavy class to your south however, about a mile or two away.>>34232253"I'd rather you DON'T wreak everything. The targets should be easy enough to find on the ground and there's a TORNADO over there to fight.">>34232313"Probably. Why do you think the best I'm giving him is whatever isn't looted of a bunch of propane tanks?"
>>34232313>>34232273"Hey, lay off guys. This is a GREAT plan...it's just gonna take some care and some luck." With that, he drives off to the bulk item store. Fun part, there's probably wiring he can use there as well. "Just keep it busy, this might take a while."
Rolled 80 (1d100)>>34232180Okay, want to activate my camo and use my grappling hooks and jumpjet to find another rooftop closer to the enemy suits.Rollin dex for sneak so i'm not targeted by enemies. Using Agent AI for the -10 dex roll.
>>34232180"Well whadayaknow"Roll to fix>>34232253"Hardly, i suggest we fan out cover as much ground as possible, flyers and fast units in the air ready to help out with any civilians. When one of us comes across the enemy or source of the tornado we converge and then wreak things"
>>34232365>I was never IN silver's car. Redo it.
Rolled 98 (1d100)>>34232388>forgot the roll
>>34232409>I have no idea where the hell you are then.
>>34232253"Golden standard sounds good now." Basilius says with a shrug.Ripping up a tree for improvised club.
>>34232429>On top of a building. Please tell me if I saw anything with Hawkeye.
>>34232365>>34232388>>34232439"Nice to see things haven't changed while I've been gone."He swung the door to Silver's car open and climbed in."So liberal application of explosives is the first step of the plan. What next? I'm voting we take those suits out. They don't play nice with civvies."
>>34232439"Walking will take too long. Throw me."Rolling up into a ball, the Bearserker activates Harden, and is ready to be thrown.
>>34232409>Okay, on top a building I guess.... 'I follow him' is REALLY bad for letting me know where you are when I go back to look at what you do, just as a heads up. You tripped me up on Red Eye the exact same way too, now that I think about it.You spot what Turtle saw earlier. A big tank of a suit... well, okay. More of a box on tank treads, just kind of.... going down the street. The most damage it really is causing is demolishing the stop lights.>>34232439You pull out the biggest few trees from the nature preserve, and hold them together. While it might be questionable how effective this is compared to an actual suit's knife or something, and how durable it is, you bet this'll hurt whatever you smack it with one way or another.>>34232388Nope. That hawkeye fucking does NOT want to work, two of it's eyes blow out, and you probably will decide to leave it as is, right now your vision is PERFECTLY normal as if you had no hawk eye, but any more cams go out and you're blind in some directions......if you really wanted, you could maybe tech roll to fix it though...>>34232379When you get there, it's not surprisingly basically abandoned. After either breaking in through the front or back, you will end up finding a mostly looted area for propane tanks... but there still seems to be a few left. Also, whatever wires you want to rip out of devices (most the TVs and stuff were taken too) would be usable too I guess.>>34232556>It begins.
Rolled 59 (1d100)>>34232380"Turtle, you want me to follow and provide cover?"Activating camo, drawing bow and shadowing Turtle.>Rolling DEXY to sneak, DEX 10, Hunter type
>>34232535"Sounds decent enough," he says, the car speeding off...and remaining remarkably smooth. Also notable is the fact that Silver isn't even suited up yet, still wearing some casual jeans and a T-shirt. All clean, of course, he's not going to dirty up his car.
Rolled 46 (1d100)>>34232535Meanwhile, Falcon flies high above, scanning the area and looking out for anyone that may require help, following Silver's car.>rolling for hawkeye
>>34232601Kes goes with, acting as wing man
>>34232582Right. With Cael's help, he goes about gathering up all the propane he can, taking apart TVs and Radios to set up some IEDs. Each one has a different channel, and a bug attached to it so that its position can be marked from afar. That way, they can be blown when they're in the midst of the tornado.
Rolled 76 (1d100)>>34232556>>34232582"It can't be helped, I'll have to use 'that'." Basilius says with another shrug. Picking up Fort, and throwing him up like a base ball, Basilius goes for a home run.
Rolled 31 (1d100)>>34232623>Tech roll for that, if needed
Quest goes in the title field.
>>34232623"I guess we'll probably be put on No-fly lists for this act of wanton explosive usage. The IRA really missed out on the next gen sign ups." He pats the last IED."A proud moment for all really."
Rolled 5 (1d100)>>34232582I aim my Particle Beam at one of the tanks weapons. +15 due to veteran soul and soldier A.I.
>>34232380Your approach... doesn't seem that stealthy. But one way or another, that giant hulk of a tank-box doesn't spot you. Or if it did, it isn't doing anything else but trecking along at about 20 MPH down the road. Your thermals don't really pick up anything but that it's a rather warm heat signature, there might be hidden guns for all you know.>>34232583Also doesn't seem to take notice, you follow along quietly enough. Both of you are now in range if you wanted to shoot it, or you could hurry over and stab it perhaps.>>34232601Well THAT hawkeye works much better. Not too many people in need of help yet, but you spot both the target Turtle and his team are going after, as well as one just a bit east of your position, if Silver was to keep going down the road he was on now, you could probably cut it off in the direction it was headed.>>34232623Congrats, you now have a bundle of IEDs, ones that will inevitably blow up if shot. You lost count somewhere around 7 of them at least, and figured it wasn't worth counting them.>>34232635>Ranged is Combat, and you certainly are shooting a giant metal berserker bear at them...[Combat Roll: Hard, Very Good Success]You propell Fortress right at the tornado... As he approaches, his thermals pick up some abnormal heat lines, no, heat signatures in the tornado and a few spiraling around it. It's an enemy suit... no, a bunch of them. Fortress's hit will take you right in the path of four of them though, roll a melee vs each of them or open fire on any/all targets you want to here.>>34232707"Yea well war crimes or not, right now I think humanity's more worried about not dieing out. Just don't end up blowing up about a third of one of the suburbs without any real plan here though you guys."
>>34232707"Eh, fuck them. I'll make my own jet! With Blackjack, a-and hookers!" He says, loading the last of them into the car's storage. "Right then...let's get these out in the field," he says, putting his suit on since, now, he's covered in grease. They hop in and speed off again, heading outside of the city and in the projected path of the tornado.
>>34232798"Uh... Guys?" Falcon says, opening comms to the car below him. "There is a suit east of us, heading down the road. We may have a chance to intercept it, but I'll need help."
>>34232795"light 'em up if you you got them ladies."Targeting the box tankRollin combat to fire my 2x Pulse rifles and Metalstorm.
>>34232795>>34232798"Well we'll try to avoid collateral. Try being the word of the day here. Explosives don't always go the way you want them to.">>34232855"I'll leave it up to Silver but I'm game." He activated his camo and got into the car.
Rolled 87, 27, 70 = 184 (3d100)>>34232882what the hell, i had my dice in the field, here's my rolls again
Rolled 68, 52 = 120 (2d100)>>34232855"Give us a sec," he says as him and Cael finish unloading. Then he primes them all with an altimeter, letting his suit blow them up once they're at a height that can only be reached by being in the tornado.With that, he sets his car to drive into an underground parking lot nearby, then cloaks himself before heading off towards the tank, using Sonar to see if it's close enough to just hack.>One to camo, one to hack.
>>34232795Uncurling, the Bearserker flashes a grin as his eyes glow red from the Thermal Vision, and his teeth a bright blue from the Beam weapon upgrade.Like a blue lightning flying through the sky, the Bearserker quickly tries to bite through the first 4 suits he sees.>Rolling for melee
Rolled 100 (1d100)>>34232795"Ho shit! You guys see that? I could be a baseball star. Might as well test these things out too."Gonna go jump jetting after Fort.

Rolled 79 (1d100)>>34232882>>34232795"Understood, Giving suppressive fire!" Eyes keeps her distance and targets the tank.>Rolling Combat, Plasma Bow, hunter upgrade, Engi AI
>>34233100whoops. also forgot my Vet soul bonus
>>34232777Well, that shot rings out a bit shy of the tank... to which it freezes in place, and turns a side to you, a hatch opening... and a salvo of missiles wildly flying out from it. [If you have Adv. Suit Status, you can tell it's locked on by heat signature.] [Roll medium dex to dodge]>>34232882At seeing this, you end up firing off your pulse rifles at the newfound opening, blowing up a fair chunk of it's missile systems and landing a few shots with the metalstorm that penetrate through it's hull. Another hatch more oriented towads you opens up, spraying out some light machine gun fire at you. [Roll a medium dex check to dodge]>>34232982And like a bolt from the blue, the bear ends up tearing through two of the suits in the middle, exiting out the other side and bracing it's impact with their remains... when you land and get a good look, the suits resemble that of a shenlong dragon, one of those chinese type dragons. Also, you hear a distinct dragon-type roar from the tornado, some bolts of lightning arcing from it and zapping around your area. [Roll an easy dex to dodge]>>34232949You trip over your own feet. "Varan, the jump jets are hooked up to your suit. You don't ACTUALLY jump to set them off." Zipline announces to him with a sigh as he lands on a chunk of the nature preserve.>>34232926You camoflage up and hack into the tank. First things first, you flip a little thing and the tank just stops dead in it's tracks, it swivels about with it's top-box portion clueless as to what the hell just happened. Next, you can tell... the box is mostly one device, something to amplify the powers of a leviathan type field... you can guess this is what causes the tornado. Lastly, you can find it doesn't have too many weapons, Two heat seeking missile systems, and a few machine gun turrets, one for each 'side'.
Rolled 7 (1d100)>>34233173Rolling to dodge. -15 for Martial Arts and Soldier A.I

>>34233173Cool. Lets take a copy of the code for the box leviathan field amp, and bludgeon into the comms. This thing probably knows where its buddies are...oh, and let's disable weapons while were at it. Meanwhile, "Command, confirming that there are suits here. It appears to have some sort of an amplifier for a leviathan-type field, which confirms there's SOMETHING big in that tornado."

>>34233370Falcon's weapons systems suddenly whine into a halt, dissipating their charge."Aw man, I wanted to blow it up. Oh well, there's still whatever's making the tornado I guess,"
>>34233370"M8 this things going to steamroller you and your car, we can stop but you can get someone else to scrape that mess of the road"
>>34233456>Yeah, no it's not. I've hacked it, and my car is parked someplace safe.
>>34233217One quick dodge behind the building you were on, and the missiles just go crashing down around your area and into a few houses.>>34233242The machine gun spray shoots around you, nothing really hitting, a few stray bullets ping right off your armor even when they hit though.>>34233100Iron Eyes sends a plasma shot right into the newly opened hatch, demolishing the gun and seeming to do some damage, the box-tank trying to turn one direction and making a rather nasty scraping sound as another machine gun seems to start opening, but isn't in an angle it can shoot at the team with yet.>>34233416That plan to dodge failed pretty miserably, as a bolt strikes the bear directly... his suit informs him he's fine, but his harden systems pretty much shatter at this hit and his shield goes dead for the time being. The tornado still seems like it's rampaging with elecricity a bit, advancing at it or not it'll probably arc to hit someone. [Roll a Dex to dodge, difficulty does not go up if you charge it or shoot it or whatever.]>>34233275The shot aims... and hits it's mark, blasting a hole... but when you look to the hole, turns out you just shot through some empty plating, the tank's systems are still perfectly intact. It confusedly tries to aim in your direction, and your suit informs you it's getting a lock on you, but you duck down and it quickly loses it... getting up to fire will probably give it a clear shot if nothing else happens though.

>>34233294"Sorry, glitched, seems like you had the same callsign somehow... weird."And with that, Basilius's jump jets ring out and launch him towards the tornado, electricity arcing towards the suit as he dives through it to hit as many things as possible. [Roll a dex to dodge, and you have as many attacks as you normally have ranged or melee to hit them with whatever you have, be it the club or your fists]>>34233596Your attempts to do a matrix style dodge doesn't work that well, it occurs to you that lightning isn't something that you move faster than usually. Bullets too, as your suit ends up getting relatively fried, an easy tech roll can get it back up and running though.>>34233552A hack and a fiddling later, and you disengage the suit's entire weapon systems... without it realizing anything is wrong. Your AI even adds a little mean surprise to it too...The spyware however, is met by some issues. You get some rather unintelligable screaming back, before it just cuts the return data. It's not a total bust though, you figure out that it's one of four of these in the area, and it seems like Turtle and his group have already engaged with the second.>>34233600Speaking of which, we move back to Turtle and his team, which another barrage of shots aim into the other gun and disable that too... the tank seems to stop. Before then pulling into reverse, rather quickly. It seems to have resorted to just ramming you guys. [No Dex roll yet, but you better have some idea to get out of it's way if you don't want to make one!]>>34233562THAT particle beam shot aims... not at a machine gun, but at another porton on the top area, landing and causing quite the explosion. You hit the aerial-bound hatch for it's missiles, seems that one is pretty much sunk in terms of plans for what it's trying to do now.

Me and Cael will work on taking out the amps.">>34233839His car rolls up, as he turns to Cael. "No time. It's not going anywhere, leave it. We need to disable that tornado before it hits the city."Then, supposing him and Cael are in the car together, they speed off towards the other suit he'd picked up, sending out sonar pings using Tremorsense to try and pinpoint its location.>rolling for Sonar and Tremorsense.

Seems there's some screaming and dieing going on just a bit north of your group's position Silver... a suit killing them? Oh fuck.Not much longer after he detects that, the radio chimes in for folks. "Hey! Around where you assholes landed some things seemed to have followed you! We're trying to kill them as best we can bu-" the guy on the radio says, before getting cut off.Silver's tremorsense ends up finding that they burrowed from below. God damnit.>>34233919>>34233931Your shots end up peppering it on one of it's treads, as it spins out and falls over on it's side, smoking and whirring a bit helplessly. It even fell on a side with a broken machine gun, before both it's missile systems end up overloading and blowing up, stopping it's frantic wheel spinning. It's probably not gonna be working any time soon, if ever again.>>34233942You tie yourself up in your grappling hook... good thing your team already got rid of it being any threat.>>34233951>Oh shit.[Success, Fail, Fail, Success]Your tree swinging ends up cleaving into a few of the shenlongs, your first two swings smack down one of them as it falls like a brick and is swept up in the tornado in a seemingly helpless manner, and the other scoring a rather nasty blow to it, but shattering your club on that last hit.[Fail, Fail, Success, Borderline Fail]Your punches meanwhile don't work nearly as well, a kick landing in on one of the suits and a punch... you coulda sworn that SHOULD have hit, but it was diverted. Your suit tells you there was some magnetic interferance with that last hit, as you land. A few bolts ring towards you [One medium dex to dodge], but immidiately after that the suits seem to scatter off in every which way, the tornado after only a few more moments dispersing.

>>34234220Do I need to be untied by a team-mate or can I cut my grappling hooks with my tentacles and natural weapons and move to help out Silver and the civilians?
>>34234431You hack comms and the like into them, finding out that there's... well, a fucking LOT of them. Their systems aren't nearly as complex or fleshed out as you'd usually expect, and a few switches later you revert two of them to only having simple blades. Their weapons include a few revolver-grade guns and vibro-pincer teeth, and that they're primarily graboids in the area. "Guys, I'd REALLY like if you guys got here sooner than later!" Zipline said, in the background a lot of gunfire and twisting metal sounding off.>>34234345You hop up to a vantage point, a five or so story building and look over to see, your dropship is basically raining down bullets as some cops seemed to have taken the spots they can to shoot down, a police barracade of sorts using both police and ambulance cars has formed a wall as a rather large fight has started up, Zipline already there and missing her main gun arm, pretty much just punching and ramming at this point. A bunch of mesh to medium size graboid suits are swarming around, some popping up behind the baracade but quickly killed, and a few humanoid-biped suits climbing out as well, armed with similar grade guns. The police have numbers but they're losing that advantage fast.>>34234064The spider program uploads just fine, any repairs that tank attempts won't work.

You mark them for the team to shoot, they're basically 'visible' for all the others need to worry about.>>34234595One 'retract' command, free.

The swarming suits seemed to have lightened up, and not much long after they just stop coming. Thank god for that.... only problem now is that there's a dragon coming right for the spot here.>>34234732>Would be nice to know what you're trying to do here, but...Silver gets to work on hacking into whatever he can, some suits locking him out, others he hacks into rather easily. The bigger issue here is there seems to just be so many, hacking into a zerg rush one by one hardly does much, even when locking them up for a free shot to be taken on them.Meanwhile, the car's autocannon spins up, waiting for a clear shot, before a graboid pops up just ahead of it and is blown away before it can shank the police officer it popped up next to.>>34234740You end up checking where they are... all 7 scatered, but four seemed to have clustered back up, two in the south and two further to the west (so back where they came from)... and two more tornados, not as big, but still destructive, soon form from them. Well shit, and there's still three more scattering to the north and the east. Which ones are you chasing after now?>>34234755Your shots hit their marks easy enough, picking off a few enemies that just finished ripping off Zipline's legs, her suit basically now just a wall that punches at anything getting close.>>34234820Cael also joins the fray, these suits are practically a joke, but a few try to get lucky hits off on him.

>>34235062You flip a few signals, and make one recognize everything as it's enemy, that one suit taking a few down before it's teamates just as caliously take it out, and a small set of killing happens to the rest. The dropzone is secure once more, what used to be a rather nice park is now torn up and with a lot of holes in it. But it's safe at least......Minus that dragon still headed straight for the area, the police pointing it out and getting out of the way, they know not to bother messing with something THAT big.>>34234962Her shot with the bow flies just to the front, surprising them, before a suit control lands and detonates right between the two, stalling up both their suits and killing their cloaking in one go.>>34235132...Unfortunatly, your shot ends up lining up and firing... right at Iron Eyes. [Iron roll a dex check to dodge].>>34235082Whatever few suits that might've been a threat in the park are quickly neutralized.

>>34235237Your suit easily catches up to a dragon, it seems they only go at levitation speed, as you open fire with your pulses they seem to curve around the dragon, and your shot with the rail rifle similarly suddenly takes a turn down to the ground. Your AI takes note of this, and automatically starts adjustments to aiming for your next barrage of shots, before the dragon turns it's attention, quickly swerving around to face you and shoots an electric blast from it's mouth towads you, and a small peppering of pulse rifle shots too. [2 medium dex checks, first is elec 2nd is pulses. One very hard success out of either of these will dodge both.]>>34235257>>34235362The autocannon sprays at the dragon, it doesn't seem none too happy about that as it prepares to seem to spit something from it's mouth at you. Now might be a good time to have the car move. Fast.On the bright side, you end up picking up what it's doing in depth. It is charging up an Ion cannon, two pulse rifles and a plasma rifle, all at you.

>>34235765You wave that shenlong around wildly.... it doesn't seem to hit shit till it colldes with one of the dragons, tearing your whip apart in one hit and the other dragon falling, but narrowly regaining it's 'flight' and getting out of the way once more, the partner of theirs shooting off it's weapons to you. [3 medium dex checks, 1 very hard will succeed for all of them]>>34235770Cael... well, you basicaly crush what would be this thing's neck with the force of basically tackling it into the nearest building. It gives a bit of a seizure before going dead for real this time.>>34235677Marking one of the dragons Basilius is taking on, you fire off a barrage of shots... all of them missing their mark. One of them is marked for Basilius and you to completely wreak however.>>34235786The dragon doesn't really have anything stoping you, infact you have to supply it power to it's computers to get the access... it's objective is pretty foreign, you don't know how or where it got this tech, but it's a modified variant of the leviathan bubble... A lot of other fancy sort of stuff, but you quickly come to the conclusion that you need to take this apart and with a team of engineers. Something the TE would be good at, and would help you take this thing back.>>34235798The bear ends up taking out one of those poor dragons once more, and lands on it just the same, before jumping at the next one as it attempted to flee from the bear, clawing it into thirds in two mighty cleaves, and landing down somewhat hard on your suit, but satisfyingly with the entirety of that tornado taken out.
>>34236059"Dibs. I call dibs on this suit." He drives up to the downed dragon next to Cael, hopping out and running over to it, his beam sabers glowing. He starts chopping into this thing, carving his way to the leviathan bubble. That is going in his car, no iffs, ands, or butts about it. Better engine than anything.

>>34236059He steps back and admires his handiwork. "Man I'm glad we have cameras. So anyone got a bead on the last targets? Because if they're engaged we should maybe help out."
>>34235947Dragging your talons as you blast every weapon you ave into it's underside, the dragon soon starts to fall... it kind of crushes you a bit before you maneuver your suit out from a side, as the dragon crashes down, head overloading and exploding as it does.>>34235910Those shots rain around the box tank, as it makes it's way towards the dragon, and the dragon swirls around it......HOLY FUCK that is a huge tornado, that was bigger than even all of the dragons acting on one of them at once... you hear the distinct sound of missile fire also ring out, seeing missiles join the tornado to form more or less a barrier of fire and metal......For a single amplifier, and a single dragon, you're glad that it's all that made it to one.

Rolled 83 (1d100)>>34236206"You won't get me that easily!"I activate the my chaff explosives and flares to deal with the missiles and fire my auto cannon at the box tank again
>>34236152Your unwieldy attacks miss their mark, you swear that magnetic field is much more annoying when you are actually subjected to having to cut through it. >>34236134Well, you salvage the leviathan bubble system safely... black goop oozing out to which you fry with what you have, AO-5 nanites. While you safely got this piece out... unless you want to give your car to the Vannai, it's probably best to wait to replicate your own version. It'll probably be more stylish too.>>34236266The beam hits home, it tried to deflect it with a rocket but... well, particle beams are kinda piercing. The box still is active, and now making a straight line towards where Chicago is, if brainwashed suits can be desperate, it must be to try this now. Unfortuantly, it actually isn't that far away from Chicago either.>>34236232As the dragon's about to shoot, Turtle's snipe-like shooting ends up interrupting it, the dragon's head also blowing up like many of the other ones before it, colliding with the injured dragon from before and trapping it below it. The injured one just weakly tries to escape it's trapping, it's also helpless at this point.

Rolled 11 (1d100)>>34236370Taking another shot at the box. +15
>>34236422No dice, if anything your constant firing has urged it to speed up as it starts plowing over some small houses even.
Rolled 14 (1d100)>>34236370Hrmm...that's unfortunate. Ah well. With this and the amp from that one tank, it should be quite simple to do so. For now, he takes some plates from it and makes a nice, air-tight metal box to put it in, then doing another run-through of the Dragon's shit to see what else he could take from it to stick on his car...maybe the capacitor? Is that still functional?>Tech in case it's necessary for anything.
Rolled 70 (1d100)>>34236206Seeing the huge tornado from a distance, the Bearserker gets down on all fours and activates bullrush, getting there in an instant. As he closes in, he jumps high into the air with the aid of his jump jets, and putting his plasma shield in front of him, hopefully blocking some of the missiles in the tornado. After getting through the tornado, he attempts to bite the SHIT out of that dragon.
Rolled 27 (1d100)>>34236444I take another shot, this one aimed for the treads.

>>34236461The attack... doesn't really work, while you get in okay and your plasma shield helps, you can't see the dragon through the explosions as you run straight into a second wall of missiles, and land on the other side, decently damaged from the barrages.
>>34236501"Huh? O-oh, right...uhm..." The car pulls up next to the box, and he stashes it in the trunk, before looking to Cael. "You need a ride?"

>>34236493Do you need to roll to pick up and bite something that isn't able to move more than a little squirm? The answer is no, you pick that sucker up and bite into it, after a bit of flailing it goes dead.>>34236609Your attempt to SMS it... ended up with you landing on your face as well on top of this damage. Fuck.>>34236566"...Guys I'm right here." Zipline said, when they turned to look on the other side of the park Zipline's suit would be there, somewhat beaten up and missing every single limb now. "I don't think you're fixing this till we bring my suit back to armor corps..."
>>34236566"Yes we aren't finished yet. We have a tornado left and a limbless commander. You can do me a favor and drop me off at the former and help the latter."
>>34236644"...Actually just grab all those IED's. I have a plan."
>>34236644Well shit, gonna run fast as I can towards the Missile tornado, using jump jets to trying to increase my speed.
>>34236525...You should probabl re-adjust that missile system, it hasn't hit anything directly at all today.A bunch of bullets seem to scratch it, but since it hasn't opened itself up like the last ones have, it easily deflects and withstands the barrage of bullets.>>34236547I think Basilius already ate it's head. Feel free to shoot the corpse all you want, it won't dodge.>>34236633Your bullets end up getting diverted by some missiles that fling off wildly to intercept the shots... it's annoying, but the missiles pretty much are playing point defense for the dragon.>>34236715>Oh shit, dis gonna be good.
>>34236652"Ehr...right." So, with that, Cael hops in, and the two take off, heading for their IED stash. That gets loaded in (kinda cramped now), and they stop about 10 blocks away from the missilenado.
Rolled 37 (1d100)>>34236644The berserker nanites finally dying down, and feeling a little beat up, the bearserker grabs his Ion cannon and tries to line up a shot through the tornado."Odin, guide my weapon so that it may strike my target true...">Rolling for Ion weapon, more to stun than to actually kill.

>>34236756A missile ends up diverting out once more, frying and falling dead close to you... it's not blowing up yet by the looks of it, you bet you can probably take it home if you were careful.
Rolled 70 (1d100)>>34236736I try to use another shot to take out the tanks treads.
>>34236745"Now Silver, pay very careful attention to me. I'm gonna pile those explosives right in the path of the tornado. I need you to turn the car round and keep the engine running. Okay?" He didn't wait for a response before he began to unload the explosives.
>>34236798The car turns around once he's done..."Cael, I don't know if I like this plan..." But the engine is still running...as the tornado gets closer and closer...
>>34236798"Y... you're what? Wait, you guys are ACTUALLY using those... I was JOKING about that propane tank thing you guys!" Zipline said... before sighing and facepalming. "Well, it's too stupid for the enemy to ever consider, so I bet it'd work..." she mused, the tornado approaching them. Now might be a good time to start with the 'get the fuck out of here' part of the plan.
Rolled 58 (1d100)>>34236787Frustrated that his suit is apparently out of energy, he resigns to let the others take care of the dragon.Sitting down and taking notice of the missile, he grabs it and looks it over. After a bit, he shrugs and starts playing with it as if it was a ball, throwing it in the air and grabbing it. Throwing it a bit too high though, it almost seems like he won't be able to grab it.>rolling whatever you deem fit to actually grab that missile
>>34236891You pick it up and heft it around a little... it doesn't blow up yet, but you hear a little "click" in it. Now might be a good time to get rid of the missile before anything else happened, or at least get to safety.
>>34236852"Yes well.." He climbed into the passenger seat and put his belt on. "Care to floor it for us?"
>>34236852VROOM VROOM, SCREEEEECHThey are officially OUTTA THERE! Leaving behind some IEDs to be blown up that missile-filled tornado.
>>34236990"You mind if I put the radio on?" He looked in the rear view mirror to the tornado.
Rolled 92 (1d100)>>34236948Taking a little while to process it, his eyes grow wide as he realizes that it's about to blow.Before it does though, he tries to throw it back at the tornado.
>>34237032"Eh, go ahead. Just nothing country..."
>>34236968>>34236990As the two drive off as fast as possible, the tornado picks up their bombs, and up they go... and go......Fuck, shouldn't they have blown up by now? The circutry must've been set up wrong, or more likely, ripped apart by the tornado.>>34237053Meanwhile a pissed bear chucks a missile at the tornado, it easily countering with it's own missile, and the rest of it's missiles like before, seeming to get out of the way of the ensuing explosion......Those propane tanks however, are not planned for. One explosion sets off another, and more and more, before swiftly the tornado ends up consuming itself in a giant plume of explosions, bits of burning shrapnel landing wildly around the suburb area they were in..."...Well shit, I didn't think that'd work nearly as well... hang on. Okay... huh. Okay. No need to go find that last tank guys... seems like the Chicago PD took care of it. With some RPGs." she commented to the others. "And seeing as how even though the area here's in even WORSE condition than before... well, it's still intact. Mission complete folks...">MISSION COMPLETE..."...Now can someone pick me and my limbs up? I kinda can't fly back on my own like I did originally."
>>34237172"...Oh, and uh... someone mind doing me a favor, I guess?" she added on top of this. "Someone go over to this place... should be in the living room, first room to the right, if you can pick up a suitcase here for me, that'd be nice." Zipline added, to anyone who said sure or whatever giving them an address to an apartment complex.
>>34237172"I'll help. On the terms you admit my plan was tactical genius and just as planned."
>>34237172I head to Zipline's position to help her out of her suit. "I'll treat you to inner for shooting off one of your limbs. Consider it an apology. Iron Eyes is probably coming along as well since I nearly shot her."
>>34237224"Actually that's pretty close to me, Zip. I got it."
>>34237172Cael and silver drive over to the Address Zipline did, stopping outside the apartment complex. Again, Silver hops outside of his car, turning it off for now. "What's in the suitcase, if yo don't mind me asking?" they say as they head up to the room specified.
>>34237227"I will admit you two, that actually was pretty creative... if not completely reckless, suicidal, and crazy.">>34237232"It's fine. I hardly eat anyway thanks to Mycelium, and I didn't feel a thing, but it's annoying to have your last arm shot off by a teammate though..."
>>34237172>Excellent mission Zipline. I had a blast.Eyes touches down and assists Zip in reassembling her suit.
>>34237172"Lets do it again some time, I loved every second"
>>34237260"Oh shush. It wasn't any worse than when Spaghetti Knight and those others thought it was a good idea to punch that titan with an exploding WMG."
>>34237172>>34237224Not fully aware that his missile actually helped cause that explosion, the bearserker makes his way back to everyone else, still frustrated, and punching a few trees and cars on his way back.
>>34237257>>34237260"Hey now, we never got anywhere by going by the book." He stepped out and shut the door, contenting himself with helping Silver.
>>34237260"Even if you don't need to eat, eating still tastes quite good.>>34237265"Do you want to attend dinner? It's my treat."
>>34237260"I'm assuming these jump jets aren't something we get to keep are they?" Basilius said while walking towards the city. "They would come in handy for several other things."
>>34237252>>34237257>>34237320The apartment seemed fairly abandoned, first door to the right was still locked. "Just break the door down, if it's not already looted by now." she mused to the team.
>>34237365"Nah, it's still locked." A lazy flick of his beam saber, and that would change. Stepping into the room, he looked around to see what all was there...
>>34237365"All right, then."Lifting one leg, Falcon kicks down the door with his talons.
>>34237320"While i'm sure all this back patting is warranted are you sure we should be doing it here, i have no doubt all those people whose houses we leveled will want to tax us heavily" Kes sets down next to the group. pointing towards a far off road where a small covey viechiles is heading down
>>34237365He stepped inside after the two before him.>>34237405"Hey look at this way, we could have not stopped the tornado."
>>34237332"...I'll think about it maybe, if I can find time between reporting in all these missions and stuff." she sighed to Giant finally.>>34237345"Well, I've been talking to command. If you guys keep em, we've gotta make em safer... and I will admit, I pretty much had those things cobbled up in a night when I saw this team. We might make one that won't have a chance of snapping off if hit by a direct attack for you guys later." she said to Basilius.>>34237302"...In my defense, I thought throwing it would be smarter, but was amazed we survived that at all.">>34237309People visiting later will be very afraid or shocked to see such gigantic damage made by a gigantic bear.
>>34237332"I'm game, anything's gotta be better then the dog food that elf serves at the New Zealand base."
>>34237456"If you can't attend dinner then how else will I make up for my mistake?"
>>34237402>>34237403>>34237445Inside was... well, a somewhat messy apartment place, pretty simple, couch tv video games and stuff. And a suitcase on a desk, next to a picture and some hasty scribbled notes. "Should be on the desk just to the right."
>>34237445"Aye we did not fail and it was fun shoot up a few tumblr suits"
>>34237456Finally reaching his teammates, the bearserker does a double take as he looks towards zipline."...What happened to you?" He asks, raising an eyebrow.
>>34237493Walking around the mess, Falcon approaches the notes and suitcase."So, what do we have here?", he questions, reading the notes.
>>34237493Silver walks over to grab the suitcase...and look at the picture, and to read over the notes. Not like it'd hurt anyone...
>>34237511"See? That's the thinking we gotta have.">>34237493He grabs the suit case. "Anything else you want while we're here? Cause we're not coming back."
>>34237530"Got torn apart by a bunch of Graboids. They tore off her arm and both her legs. I then accidentally shot off her other limb."
>>34237549"Damn right where not coming back, my hawk-eye has finally worked and it looks like whoever's at the head of that colom is both very powerful and pissed off
>>34237538The notes were rather hastey scribbled. More of a list than anything.Mother OFather OSister ?And a various list of names, with O's X's, or ?'s also with them were there.>>34237547The picture is a family portrait, looks like there's a little Zipline there about ten years old, her hair obviously dyed, along with a mother, father, and man about ten years older. The father and man don't have a resemblance, but you can tell he's related by the mother's side....It's dated three months before the fall, in Kent Ashford.>>34237549"Nah that's it, everything should be there. Thanks, I'll see you guys at base." she said rather simply.
>>34237650"Alright, we'll head over ASAP." He removed his helmet and turned transmission off. "C'mon you guys, don't be snooping. This is private stuff.
>>34237650...interesting. Taking the list of notes to look over later, as well as the picture for search reasons, he leaves the place with Cael, only stopping to take the amp out of the disabled tank from before.
>>34237580"Huh...Well serves you right for messing with my suit without permission." He says as he lightly punches zipline's shoulder.
>>34237650Hesitating upon reading the list, Falcon opens a private comm channel to Zipline"Zip, uh... Do you want anything else back, besides the suitcase? There's a few other things here. They kinda look important."
>>34237702"Hey, you had fun with those jump jets didn't you? I thought of all folks you'd have a blast with em." she remarked rather simply to Fortress.
>>34237709"Don't worry about it," he says, storing the notes and picture in his pocket. He'll do a bit of background work later...you know, after his car runs on TORNADO POWER and stuff.
>>34237709"No... I have copies, I guess I just forgot those ones there." she said. "...The list there is outdated too, just so you know.">>34237733>I don't think you'll be making tornado batteries that can fit in a car, Silver.
>>34237720"Once you know how to use them, they're bad ass." Basilius said as he reached the group.
>>34237747"I see. Well, the others already got everything else. We're going back now."
>>34237720He grumbles a bit."Well, I guess they were useful...But I'd still rather if you told me before you messed with my suit."He then gets an idea."In fact...you look like you're in a rather vulnerable position as well...Wouldn't it be perfect for a little payback?"
>>34237747"Really wish I turned off in bound comms as well." He walked outside to the car, carrying the suitcase.
>>34237747>Watch me. Environmentally seal the hood of the car, use electricity to activate a miniaturized tornadobubble inside of it. The tornado itself is what spins the wheels. chekm8
>>34237797"...For what?" she simply said to him unamused.
>>34237797I step between Fortress and Zipline. "Not a good idea" I have a blade extend out of my collapsed suit on my wrist.
>>34237842>>34237829"Kill joy, anyway we best be off, if you need a lift Zipline i can carry you back to base, someone else will have to bring your bits"
>>34237842The car drives up just as the knives come out. "Woah woah, what the fuck guys?"
>>34237842Letting out a scoff, he simply pushes him aside."Please. I'm not killing anyone.">>34237842"And for doing what you did of course, attach things to suits without permission. "I somehow manage to disconnect the jump jets from my suit and connect them to Zipline's suit."Up you go!" He says as he activates the jump jets, sending the remains of zipline's suit up in the air.
>>34237957"That was just plain petty."
>>34237957"That it is"
>>34237957"Eh wha-AH!" she yelped, her suit just wildly flying off and crash landing down somewhere a few blocks away. "DAMMIT FORTRESS!"
>>34237957With a sigh, Silver drives off to the Extraction zone, leaving Zip to her fate...
>>34238106"..." He merely watched and looked at Fortress, words failing him.
>>34237957"This is why I prefer Moqaddas, at least there we can take a joke, right Fort?"
>>34238125"You could at least give us a lift! *Grumble*" I de-collapse my suit. "Climb on my back Zipline. I'll take you to the extraction point. We can get a lifter to pick up your suit."
>>34238106Flying back to the extraction point, he sees something that looks suspiciously like a mangled Zipline's suit flying by."What the- Guys, what are ya up to?"
>>34238216Kes joins him on the way to the extraction point "Don't ask keep flying"
>>34238106>MfwEyes picks up one of zipline's legs and hauls it off to the LZ.
>>34238258Welp.>>34238267"Oh right, allmost forgot those. Yo Kes, gimme a hand here, will ya? Or rather, gimme Zipline's hand, heh", he jokes, flying to where the wreckage is.
>>34238317"Sure mate" Kes picks up Ziplines head "But lets not get ahead of ourselves here"
>>34238348>zippy's suit doesn't have a head, but I'll let it slide just because of the pun
>>34238397"Well you can't blame me" He picks up a leg or arm, can't tell it's too mangled, and points it at falcon "I just went out on a limb"
>>34238512"Alright, cut the scrap and let's head back. People are probably tired of us junking around like this."
>>34238591"I agree, lets get out of here" >I actually laughed because of that, well done sir
>>34238677>same to you, that 'limb' joke got me good
"Right then, i'll take this, you grab those" Kes says as he hauls the body up. Still giggling he takes to the air heading for extraction point, flying low, Ziplines suit weighing him down.
