Rules and Mechanics: http://pastebin.com/J8ehewqf A.T.B 2017, 25th of September Area 11(Former Nation of Japan), 11:30 AMYou are a fresh faced trainee in the Holy Britannian Army, eight weeks into her training to become a Knightmare Frame pilot and are currently on a military transport bus with at least thirty other trainees headed to...well actually you have no where you’re going. The bus is pretty cramped and you’re thankful you’d taken the seat at the far back near the window, the only girl on the whole bus with a seat to herself. That may be because you’re the ONLY girl on the bus. Everyone else aboard are males ranging from around your age to much older.Quite a few stare at you, though not for the reasons boys normally stare at young girls. Their eyes bore into you and make your insides crawl, as if they've already peeled away your facade and seen through your mask. None of them speak to you directly, but their eyes are practically screaming at you.>“You don’t belong here”You know that. That’s precisely why you joined in the first place. The bus shakes slightly as you make sure your amber hair is tied back and look down at yourself. Your tight olive drab uniform feels strange on you, despite having worn it so long. It’s identical to everyone else’s, save for the name stitched on the front. Everyone else has their real name out for all to see, but you enlisted under a false name, a fake identity. Despite knowing what could have happened if you used your real name, it still makes you uncomfortable pretending to be someone you’re not.But then again...maybe that’s because you need to become someone you're not to get what you want.So what’s your fake name?
>>35609470>>35609359SecondPretty sure that's a girls name
>>35609546>you’re the ONLY girl on the bus
>>35609470>>35609359This.Guess we look Chinese/Japanese>>35609546>>35609496>That may be because you’re the ONLY girl on the bus. Everyone else aboard are males ranging from around your age to much older.
I'm unfamiliar with Code Geass, but it we are British shouldn't we have a British name?
>>35609599>British>Area 11(Former Nation of Japan), 11:30 AM>Despite knowing what could have happened if you used your real name, it still makes you uncomfortable pretending to be someone you’re not.Besides, Code Gayass never really did all that much about names.
>>35609616I read that but i assumed that the culture may have got changed in the take over including the names
>>35609470>>35609500>>35609569>Xinlu KuuYou tried to pick a name as far and away from your real one as possible, though you might have gone a bit too foreign with it. It's obvious from your appearance that you're not from the Chinese Federation or an Eleven, however that hasn't stopped people from assuming you're of mixed blood. If it weren't for your papers stating you were just a regular commoner Britannian you might have not been able to make it in...You try to keep your mind off such unpleasant possibilities by looking out the window at the scenery outside, but find there's not much to see. For the last few hours it's been nothing but thick, shadowy woods and the occasional stream. Despite the placid feeling you get by staring at the green and orange trees as the bus rushes past them, your mind keeps drifting back to a more unpleasant topic. Trying desperately to keep your mind occupied you quickly tune your ears to the talk going on in the seat in front of you.“Man this sucks, we've been driving for hours.” One of recruits whines under his breath.“Any idea where they're taking us? Getting shipped off without being told where we’re going is pretty creepy, I keep feeling they're gonna pull over, kick us out, and tell us to walk home because we're failures....” The recruit asks nervously, making you wonder if that could happen until the other recruit speaks.."Don't be such a baby, the Britannian Army wouldn't do something like that. If we all sucked we would have just gotten kicked out as soon as we didn't meet the cut. If anything our training is probably getting accelerated, it's been nearly two months since the Special Administration Zone flopped and that terrorist Zero promised to return and 'liberate the Japan'." >(1/2)
>>35609658Not at all, the Japanese culture still exists, it's just there's a heavy "Britannian" culture overlayed ontop of it, if you submit to it, call yourself inferior and bow down, you become an "Honorary" Britannian, at that point name gaps might come into play.But otherwise, nope, still all Japanse.>>35609682>You tried to pick a name as far and away from your real one as possible, though you might have gone a bit too foreign with it. It's obvious from your appearance that you're not from the Chinese Federation or an Eleven, however that hasn't stopped people from assuming you're of mixed blood. If it weren't for your papers stating you were just a regular commoner Britannian you might have not been able to make it in...Well, alright then. Fuck.
>>35609696We'll just claim we've been adopted by a Chinese family.
>>35609721That's just not how it works.
>>35609682"Of course, do you really think the courts care about a bunch of Elevens? Trying to send someone to prison for killing one of them would be like trying to accuse a man of murder for stepping on a cockroach. The Zone was a waste of time to begin with, it's revolting that anyone in the Royal Family would support something like that."“Princess Euphemia's glad no one tried to kill her over it, if not the militants then all those filthy Elevens who didn't realize her plan was a flop from the start! Well I’m just glad to have a crack at those filthy terrorists when they raise their ugly heads. I mean it’s as black and white as a fight can get...get it? Huh? Because they’re called the Black-”“Oh shut up. I don’t care about that morality bullshit, I’m just in this for the paycheck.”You bite down on your tongue and do your best to tune them out, realizing that listening to the conversation did the exact opposite of what you hoped it would. Is this why people joined the military? For personal gain and the pleasure of killing others? The reason why you joined the military isn't a particular noble or selfless one, so maybe you're not in a position to judge. After all you joined because you want…>Strength>Revenge>The truth

Is there any reason why all quest nowadays star a female protagonist?I mean shit, a plethora have been created in this past week, but I can't think of any with a male fucking main character.

>>35609752>RevengeFuck you, old man
>>35609682>It's obvious from your appearance that you're not from the Chinese Federation or an ElevenLets be honest, Britannia was a bit all over the place with people's appearances, Viletta Nu being a main example.Orange as well.
>>35609783We Revengeance now.
>>35609752>[X] The truth
>>35609783>>35609811>>35609817>>35609883>Strength, Revenge, and the TruthYou try to pin the exact reason why you joined the military, but it doesn't come to you. There was so many reasons why you joined that it's hard to just state one. However every reason you have ties back to HIM.The man who lied to you, used, you, caused the death of your father and the suicide of your mother, and nearly drove you mad with fear and grief. You know who he is and want nothing more then to make him suffer in every way imaginable but you couldn't. Not only were you too weak to even think about laying a figure on him, but you had no idea why he did the things he did to you.You don't give a damn about justice, you just want the power to exact your revenge and strangle whatever mad, empty reasonings he has for the misery and suffering he's caused you and countless others.The bus comes to a sudden halt and you look up to see the high concrete walls of what could only be a proper Britannian military installation. The bus doors open and a drill instructor steps aboard with a rather fearsome look on his face. Everyone, including yourself, quickly jumps to their feet and snaps a salute, the weeks of threats and reprimands burning respect for your superiors into your bodies. You fumble with your seatbelt stand up late,catching a glare from the instructor that sends chills down your spine>(1/2).
>>35610010“Welcome to Odake Base, meat! You are all to leave your bags and follow me to the Knightmare Frame garage, we’ll be conducting a aptitude test immediately! Questions will be answered later!” The sergeant barks, warranting a few inaudible mutters of irritation from the recruits. You catch what the two young men in front of you say.“Why are we being given an aptitude test here? Shouldn't they have done that before sending us out here?”“Man this is a raw deal, we haven’t even eaten yet…”After stepping off the bus you fall into forming lines with the rest of the trainees and march across the base towards the hangers, passing enlisted soldiers and a few construction frames. Walking around in lines always made you think of preschool, only instead of learning your ABCs and how to play nice with the other kids you’re learning how to break wrists, and pilot killing machines.After a few minutes of walking you all come to a large open hanger with rows of Knightmare Frames lined up against the walls. RPI-11 Glasgows, the first Knightmares mass produced by the Britannia for active combat service.They’re seven years outdated and have been phased out of service, but are still kept for training purposes. It’s funny, you were always pretty terrible when it came to machines. But you seem to be pretty good around Knightmare Frames. In fact in the simulators and training exercises you scored pretty high, you specifically excelled in..>Defense (Lower rolls required to block attacks and use defencive systems successfully. May allow the learning of special defencive techniques you otherwise couldn’t master) >Offense (Lower rolls required to hit successfully with weapons and makes it easier to use more power and complex attack systems.)>Maneuverability (Lower rolls required to successfully dodge or evade attacks or traps.

>>35610116>>35610158>>35610216That's not how Code Geass works
>>35610176Welcome to VOTOMS. The show Code Geass got dem amazingly sexy skate-wheels from. Here's a chart in what order to watch, it's pretty much all designs like that duking it the fuck out.
>>35610232Watch more mecha.
>>35610239Looks like I got some watching to do
>>35610090>>35610082>>35610062>>35610061>Maneuverability The early training you got in boot camp was hard, but the running and exercises were the easy parts. You were something of a gynmnist and a swimmer before you joined, so you already had an excellent physique. The weeks of yelling, threats, and brutal training honed your reflexes and when you finally got your hands on the control of a Knightmare, you found you could leave the other recruits in the dust.Seeing as all the Glasgows are the same, you take the nearest one, #5, and board it. Sliding into the cockpit you slide in the blank starter key, enter the password and take a small breather as the rust bucket of a machine boots up. Eventually the screens flash and you're greeted by the familiar status screen of your console. As routine you check everything over and find the Glasgow seems armed for a standard training exercise, the usual pair of fixed Slash Harkens on the chest, a pair of folding Tonfas on the arms, and the stock standard RA-57K 57mm Coilgun with the fixed 80mm grenade launcher.You don't see any indicator that the rounds are paint rounds, but this is a training exercise so you assume that's a given. Just as you're about to raise the Glasgow to it's feet and form up, you stop yourself when you notice the power level of the Knightmare is REALLY low. A mere 25 minutes left on the Energy Filler.Not only that, but there appears to be a malfunction with the ejection system of all things. Opening your cockpit you stand up and call out to the Drill Sargent watching the other recruits form their Glasgows into rows."Uh, excuse me sir? My unit appears to be-""Sit back into your cockpit and take your place in the line! All these units have been cleared for this exercise. If there is anything wrong with your unit, then it has been artificially induced for the sake of simulation purposes!" Getting another spine ripping glare from the Drill Sargent you sit back down...>(1/2)
>>35609616>>35609599Code Geass Britannia actually has a lot of European nobles among its population who fled from the continent when the revolutions succeeded many years ago. So that explains why not all Britannians have British names.
>>35610307Welcome to Chirico's wild ride. Popcorn on your left, the greatest movement sound anyone could ever give to a mech on your right.
>>35610291Being lone wolf in Code Geass is essentially impossible until you're into Seventh Generation Knightmare frames, and even then those run out of power in serious engagements exceedingly fast.Without the backing of a nation that can manufacture Energy Fillers, or a proper way to extract them, it's essentially impossible to sustainable be lone-wolf, even less so due to the nature of Seventh Generation Knightmare frames.
>>35610393Thank you for that entirely worthless information that absolutly no one asked you for.
>>35610393Depends on the exact point in the time line. You have Orpheus from Code Geass Oz the Reflection (spin-off between seasons) being mostly a lone wolf, although with support from a terrorist organization, not a superpower.
>>35610327>You don't see any indicator that the rounds are paint roundsWatch as those are real rounds.
>>35610393To be fair, VOTOMS isn't so much lone wolf as "knowing that dodging is important in a Real-series" and "surviving ridiculous odds". It doesn't feature any snowflake mecha, nor does it have a limitless power source. In fact, the one time there's a montage to building the protagonist's next mecha upgrade (he goes through mechs like tissue paper, they typically don't last more than three episodes before they're unrepairable), it gets wrecked in 40 minutes.It makes for a nice change, and reinforces the protagonist is a good pilot instead of someone who crutches on his machine's performance.
>>35610232It doesn't happen during the main Code Geass TV series but equivalent things have happened in spin-offs. Just like the Votoms reference here is also to something that happened outside of the original TV show.
>>35610466live fire training!>>35610436Z2 was all kinds of fun crazy
>>35610467That's Chirico, but lone wolf applies to Mellowlink (sp?) though. Votoms does make the robots disposable in exchange for making it literally impossible for the protagonist to die though.
>>35610534I really enjoy the fact that they seem to remember that "protagonist cannot die" doesn't always equal "succeeds at everything forever", actually making him struggle against others.And, you know, fuck up, get his AT wrecked, and having to get it replaced.
>>35610460>Customized Seventh Generation Knightmare FrameAnd the terrorists supply the Energy Filler.Currently we're just sometime post Episode 22 in Season 1.
>>35610564I liked that, but they do get a bit extreme with the sorts of things Chirico survives. Watch the prequels and you'll see how crazy that can get.
>>35610327Getting your Glasgow to your feet you deploy the Landspinners and quickly roll your way outside the hanger where the others have gathered in rows on the edge of the base perimeter where a rather noticeable hole in the wall is. Immediately upon sliding into place a voice booms over the nearby speaker system, picked up by the Glasgows external audio pickup. "There is a clearing with hills 2 kilometers through the woods straight ahead of you. You are to break through the enemy line and return with your Knightmare still operational. Do not be lax because this is a simulation!"Silence falls and you slowly watch your energy filler drain away..."START!"The booming voice prompts all the trainees to bolt forward, sending up dust and dirt as they peel their way across the concrete and into the soft Japanese earth before plowing their way through the forest. All the vegetation is pretty light so you push right through it without any issues, it'd take a pretty thick tree to completely stop a Knightmare.Your visibility is garbage moving through the woods and as you move you hear local chatter on the radio, it's from the other recruits."What the hell's going on?""How should I know? Maybe they're just giving us shit because we're new..."With 20:00 minutes left on your battery you break through the forest with the rest of the recruits and find yourself rushing through a clearing. Immediately you spot them, thirty Glasgows with red shoulders in a 30 meter line across the low rolling hills. They stand their, Factspheres pulsing and weapons ready as they guard the flags that you're probably supposed to pass through before turning back to base.The other recruits rush ahead of you, eager to get some shots off."Alright, let's give these guys a good scare! This simulation's gonna be boring enough firing blanks!">(2/3)
>>35610534Yeah but the "lone wolf dosen't work" line is completely unrelated to Mellowlink since his whole thing was killing people while fighting on foot with an pike-gun thing.
>>35610588To be fair, Orpheus actually uses a few different mecha at times. There's a couple of chapters where he has a custom Glasgow
>>35610611>Glascow Red Shoulder'sfuuuuuck!
>>35610611>Red ShouldersYOU MOTHERFUCKER.
>>35610613Yes, my bad. I wasn't implying otherwise.
>>35610640>>35610631>>35610648I don't get it
>>35610670red shoulders in votoms were baaaad mofo's
>>35610681This isn't Votoms though, so why is everyone caring?
>>35610681Big deal, those suits needs to be 92% more red before they ban beat us.
>>35610611You're about ready to rush ahead with everyone when one of the Glasgows on the hill fires a shot from it's cannon. The sound screeches through the air and hits the foremost Glasgow in front of you.The shot tears though the torso and punches through the cockpit, causing an explosion that causes you're whole suit to shake. Immediately the trainees around you start screeching to a halt, only to fall over as bullets rip through their shits and end their lives.Screams to stop immediately flood the comms as you fellow trainees panic and shatter, coilgun rounds, cannons, and even some missiles flying all around you, quickly filling the once peaceful clearing with the sound of war. Your heart thunderers in your chest but you keep moving. If you turn back you're going to die, your best option is to break through, but how?>Keep your distance and quickly use your Factsphere to pick out a weakspot in their line (Energy Consumption: High)>Charge through whatever spot looks the most approachable and fire everything you have at them! (Energy Consumption: Moderate) >Weaver through the other trainees and draw aggro onto them, once you have the Glasgows on the hill firing at them, pull away from the group and try to bust through the line while everyone's distracted (Energy Consumption: Low, Bad reputation)
>>35610670The most dangerous enemies in VOTOMS, which as mentioned earlier served as an inspiration to Code Geass' mech movement, were the Red Shoulders. These guys were fucking legends and were basically the "you have fucked up now" button. To use a Dark Souls comparison, they're the Dickwraiths. They show up out of nowhere, you're like a new player fresh out of the tutorial by comparison, they murder everything and everyone in the nearby environment and then they move on.Except unlike Dickwraiths, they use completely vanilla stock ATs instead of some highly customized loadout, and the only way you could differentiate them from anyone else is that their right shoulder was painted red.
>>35610713>Weaver through the other trainees and draw aggro onto them, once you have the Glasgows on the hill firing at them, pull away from the group and try to bust through the line while everyone's distracted (Energy Consumption: Low, Bad reputation)There's only bad reputation if someone is left alive to tell it.

>>35610860If QM wants to run a special smowflake quest it's fine because we're being scouted by some selfserving non-official unit.Otherwise it's fucking up.
>>35610934Aside from the people shooting at us.Or the people monitoring the fight.Or you know, the fucking military we're joining.

However there's a group of five that are dodging around and sticking very close together. Maybe they're just trying to find an opening, or maybe they're hoping that if they run out of power they won't get shot?You could easily have used them to draw aggro and busted through the lines with ease, but the idea turns your stomach. Why the hell is this happening? Why is everyone dying? Why won't they just stop! You don't bother wasting your breath or valuable time trying to contact them over the radio, instead you speed forward and make your way towards the left most side of the hills that seems to have the fewest troops.As you approach they begin to open fire on you with everything they have. You begin to maneuver and spray your 57mm in the hopes of breaking through in one piece.>Give me your dice. Roll 1d100's, I'll take the first three

>>35610986>Best of three, right? Yep.>8357mm coilgun rounds and 100mm cannon shots fly towards you, but you're smart enough then to just charge straight at a fortified position. You move as erratically as your hands and the clunky Glasgow will allow, doing your best to avoid getting shot while keeping your speed and momentum.Your own gunfire doesn't hit shit due to your wild movements, but you come close enough that it spooks one into ducking behind the cover of the hill, allowing you to rush up and over.As you get some air and soar over the head of the foolish red shoulder, you see the red flags you need to pass through and your hands begin to tremble. You're so close to escaping this nightmare, but a thought hits you:You could potentially kill some of these bastards and open up a way out for the other surviving trainees. It's the right thing to do, but your fearful mind is telling you that it's suicide. You're the only one on the other side of the line, you'll be lucky to get across the flags and back to base, it'd take a miracle to kill more then a couple of these armed nuts without getting turned into swiss cheese.With your power at 18% and your ammunition still pretty go, you hit the ground and...>Make a beeline for the flags, full speed!

>>35611587>92Weather because of the bit of dust thrown up by your grenades or the grace of god, you manage to blaze through the flags and crash into the woods with only a few glancing shots of Knightmare, one in particular grazing the roof of your cockpit and filling with ears with a sharp metallic noise that fills your panicked mind with the imagery of a metal jawed grim reaper.Your heart hammers in your chest and sweat streaks down your face, your green eyes dilated in life saving fear as your knuckles begin to go white from clutching the control sticks so hard. Just as you begin to think you're safe you hear rather close gunfire and feel the explosions of rockets shake your Knightmare.You're begin pursued! You don't think it's all of them, maybe just a few. But even if it's just two you're out of ammo and just down to your Slash Harkens and Tonfas. The woods are too thick to properly fight in, so much so that you couldn't see into the clearing until you were completely out of it. If you break out into the clearing outside the base you could wait and try and ambush them if they come out after you. Alternatively you could just head straight back to base like all the other, sane trainees probably have.>Flee back to base! (Power Consumption: Moderate)>Wait in ambush and kill these bastards!

>>35611859He can't mindjack us if we don't leave the cockpit. It requires eye contact. So just fasten our helmet (why would you ever not wear one on a battlefield, in a cockpit or not), or strap on those protective goggles, keep a pair of mirrored sunglasses in the glove compartment or something in case we need to hide our face and our helmet's gone, the works.And then we just have to not job so he can't open the cockpit in the first place.

You try to weaver and evade but the right leg is giving you difficulties.

>>35611984What's wrong with the Glasgow and the Sutherland?>>35612010They are pretty neat, but the main issue is that they have weapons for arms. This means we can't extend our ammo capacity with whatever we find on the battlefield, and they present a larger profile for people to shoot at or accidentally hit. At that point, we'd be completely defenseless save for the pitifully short-ranged Slash Harken.Also, I doubt we can achieve our goal of truth-powered strengthvengeance if we're off dicking around in Europe.

>>35612054See my previous post >>35611771
>>35612085way to blow a roll!
>>35612079Problem is that we also need to, in order to actually get to this asshole, get some info on his whereabouts. If he's last-sighted in Nippon country, I doubt we can get leads there. If you're lucky, he'll flee to Europe and we'll go into hot pursuit. Until then, let's try not to home in on the shitty CGI sidestory, yeah?
>>35612094That's not what I said. I never said we needed to go into melee combat, I'm saying that having guns for hands means you can't loot anything off the battlefield to extend your ammo capability or take advantage of the human-like profile of our Knightmare Frame.On top of that, having a melee weapon and the ability to wield any kind of Knightmare Frame compatible ranged weapon on top of that is, to me, a big step up over having no melee capability and huge targets for hands. Having the ability and never using it is better than wishing you had it when you really need it. That's why the blade tonfas are built into the unit as a sidearm as opposed to having nothing at all.Plus, if we were using a Panzer Hummel in this situation, we'd be fucked beyond measure because we'd be out of ammo in a mech that can't do close quarters combat.
>>35612108I just want the mech, dude. Maybe if they have a Panzer Hummel in a lab/materiel depot somewhere and we can steal it...
>>35612200let's not use one of the worst mechs in the show ok
>>35612200Can't we give it to someone else in an artillery role when we get assigned to a squadron? Considering our entire fighting style is "gotta go fast, vrrrrrrr", the Hummel is hardly what we'd excel at.
>>35612198>if we were using a Panzer Hummel in this situation, we'd be fucked beyond measure because we'd be out of ammo in a mech that can't do close quarters combatNigger if we were in this situation with a panzer hummel the red shoulders would be blown up, not beat up. Also, you act like you need a weapon to do melee combat, but a hummel's got superior mass, superior armor, two slash harkens, and two giant fucking beatsticks for arms! Literally the only disadvantage is that it's slower.>>35612215It's better than a fucking glasgow.
>>35612200>>35612244What we really need is a sword and something fast
>>35612244well delegate combat rolles if we actually get a squad of our own utill then we are a grunt
>>35612277glasgow are on par with the panzer hummel and once you get to gen fives it is no long a fight
>>35612277You mean aside from the fact that the Red Shoulders' entire specialty is going fast, hitting hard, and being better than you? It's a fucking miracle we managed to get through the lines without losing an arm.There's a reason the Panzer Hummel isn't more widespread, which is that speed is incredibly fucking instrumental to survival here. It's not Gundam, where you can take a few hits where you're in trouble. If you get hit in a Knightmare Frame you might as well have paper mache for armor because it's not gonna stop those rounds, especially not with the cockpits being as huge as they are and sticking out of the unit.That last part, especially, is why you don't want to stand still or go slower. The Hummel could be armored with solid diamonds and they'd just drop a zook round in the cockpit, GG no re.
>>35612030>92>SLASH HARKENGritting your teeth you pull up your landspinners and smash your Glasgow's bare feet against the concrete, throwing up sparks as you grind to a violent halt and filling the air with a sound that makes nails on chalkboard sound like Beethoven First Symphony. The red shoulders lower your weapons, seeing as you're on the spot everyone else is, but you don't so much as hesitate as you pull the firing trigger and unleash your harkens in the two killers.Being stationary the harkens hit them with ease, punching through their chests and causing their Yggdrasil Drives to detonate from impact. A dark smile spreads across your face as you notice that their cockpits didn't eject when their suits exploded. Seems like you weren't the only one with an intentionally defective suit. The screen of your Glasgow goes black as your power drops to zero, barely leaving you enough secondary power left to open your cockpit. Your whole body shakes as you sit in your chair, watching the forest for any signs of the other enemies. None come and eventually you catch enough of your breath to climb down from your suit.As you walk over to the other recruits Glasgows to see if they're alright, you spot the Drill Sargent walking out with a handful of armed men, looking over the carnage and marking things off on a check board like it was routine."Sargent! We were-""Caught in a terrible training accident, truly one that will go down in the manuals as a terrible sight to behold. It's a shame that those other pilots didn't realize what was going on until it was too late." The Drill Sargent looks up from his clip board with a smug, almost eerily familiar smile that makes your head begin to pound."What are you talking about? That wasn't an accident!""You're probably too shaken up to properly remember what happened, just sit down with the others and the medics will see to you in a minute...">(1/2)

>>35612637wonder if we can get a custom cockpit
>>35612637they also have some nice looking uniforms in the ova, gotta love the blue and red
>>35612637Exactly. And unlike the Hummel, they're fast enough to get away with it. You could pilot a Hummel and be a slow fat bastard with a giant glaring weakpoint for anything that approaches you from not-the-front.Or you could be anything else and be a fast motherfucker with a giant glaring weakpoint that is now vastly harder to hit.The Hummel isn't awful, for an artillery-type it's pretty okay. Just stand away where they can't approach you from the side or back, in the back of the formation, and shell the fuck out of them. But we're the speed-centric pilot. That's what we picked at char gen, that's what we excel at. A Hummel is a death trap to us because of the speed issue. It plays directly against our strengths instead of working with them, which is what literally any other model Knightmare Frame would instead cooperate with.
>>35612637Well the EU went full retard politically instead, so what can you do.I mean at no point did they attempt to seize Japan to get McGuffin power source. At least China tried with the Japanese guy in the first series, instead the EU were happy staying in a deadlocked war, which they were pretty much guaranteed to lose.Nor was there any indication that they helped fund a terrorist organization in the heartland of the very enemy they were at war with. I mean funding extremist groups is rule 1 in modern war.Then there's the whole "let's treat the Japanese refugees as suicide bombs with super expensive knightmares."
>>35612759i think the suicide thing was just that one commander
>>35612710>you could pilot a Hummel and be a slow fat bastardWe are the perfect person to drive a Phummel because we're good at making shit go fast, which mitigates its most glaring weakness. And besides, do you think the fucks from the other armies are good enough to cockpit snipe us, especially at the range the hummel operates at? I agree that we'll be weak to sniper units and ambushes, but we'll be fucking great at everything else.
>>35612812>I agree that we'll be weak to sniper units and ambushes,>weak to ambushes>In Code GeassWhere the fuck do you think you are? Gundam UC?
>>35612791Maybe, but putting that much ordinance in one Knightmare would make most quartermasters balk. It'd have to be signed up by someone higher up. Then there's also the noble party, in which every EU noble was smug, arrogant douche-bags.
>>35612838No, I'm in Code Geass. And when I was watching the fights in Code Geass, I would usually be able to say,"Wow. These fucks would be screwed if somebody brought a proper gun."
>>35612812The problem is that we'll be perpetually outmatched by anyone who specializes in the same thing (literally every enemy ace and most of ours too, for good measure) while they hit just as hard and go faster than we can keep up with. There's also the issue that we'd be deadlocked in something that runs behind about three generations on the rest of the KF lines. Instead, specializing in that speed would mitigate snipers and most ambushes as well, as you'd still need to actually hit us when our preferred MO is "go really, blindingly fast".I'm also pretty sure that if we brought a bazooka with us, we'd be able to hit nearly as hard.
>>35612812dude we are in the fucking HBM meaning we are not going to ever pilot a shitty hummel
>>35612879all nobles are smug, arrogant douche-bags in code geass no matter the nationality
>>35611794>red hair>green eyes

Your anger begins to fade as the adrenaline begins to slowly die in your veins, exhaustion taking over as your sweat begins to chill on your skin.Practically collapsing against the side of one of the collapsed Glasgow's, you look over and see that out of the four other Glasgows that arrived three of the pilots are alive, with one being rushed away on a stretcher as the medics arrive. Part of you feels glad knowing that you helped some of the others get away from that hellish nightmare, that you got out with not only your life but some new found strength as well.However as happy as your actions make you, your mind immediately goes back to the battle. The screaming, the gunfire, all the killing and death, you just want to forget...to forget....Your eyes begin to droop and sleep nearly takes you there, but the commanding, almost overpowering phrase that echoes over and over again in your mind sends a surge of fear through you. Feeling yourself beginning to slip you begin to frantically pat yourself down in search of your medication. By the time the medics arrive you'd already ripped open your shirt and pulled out a small injector from between your cleavage. Putting it to your neck, you shoot yourself up and immediately feel all drowsiness leave your system as a overwhelming pain shoots through your body. You fall onto your side, writing around on the ground as you begin to claw the sides of your head in a desperate plot to cope with the pain.The medics rush over and demand what's wrong but you can't answer them. You can't speak, you can't move, all you can do is lie on the ground, shake, and remember.You have to remember, you have too...>(1/2)

>>35613051It does, however, make it an absolute bitch to actually fire at it. Human aim is still something you have to take into consideration and a fast moving target will always be much harder to hit than a slow moving target.That said, >all those stupid secondary and tertiary characters who claimed to be "ace pilots" would have been fucked up the ass for bringing a sword to a gunfight.>All the bullet dodging in that show is plot armorTake a wild guess what would have happened. Really.On top of that, your main argument is that our talents compensate for the dropped speed, but wouldn't anything like an autocannon become vastly inaccurate if you don't stand still to aim it?Finally, the Panzer Hummel did appear in Code Geass' second season. As you might imagine, it did not in fact save the day or do anything significant and instead jobbed hard to everything with a speed design philosophy.The design philosophy for the Panzer Hummel does not work. If it did, they would have made more. If the results it produced weren't shit, we'd have gotten more of those. But it didn't, and the results speak for themselves. It's shit.

>>35613099Well, in canon Code Geass the EU has Africa and Europe while Britannia has the Americas plus Japan and the Chinese have the Far East. Not that hard to grasp.The EU loses stuff later to Britannia and China gets incorporated into a larger alliance, but that's understandable.
>>35613085>Glad to see the QM is giving us input on what we can and cant do in this quest.>OH WAITSorry, sorry, I got caught up in keeping up with posts.All in all, given how insanely maneuverable most Knightmares are, focusing on mobility is probably the best option since you all chose Maneuverability as a focus. Also, on Panzer Hummels, they're essentially Pseudo Knightmare frames, barely a step up from a take. They have lots of armor and long ranged weapons, but their speed and maneuverability are absolute trash. They're a danger because they're deployed in numbers and set up in situations where Britannian Knightmares are forced to approach through vulnerable wide open areas.Since the E.U canonically wasn't doing so well you can guess that this the Panzer Hummels weren't very flexible in their usage. If you guys decide you want a Hummel, just about everything besides Gun Ru's are gonna spin donuts around you.

>>35613210>Sorry, sorry, I got caught up in keeping up with posts.No, no, I was being a fucking cunt to the guy since he was speaking as if he were you.Glad to see you're logical about this though.
To be honest, the Panzel Hummel is a terrible example of "Oh this would have won the war"The Gawain did a better job of blowing the fuck out of something, it was fast enough to actually avoid some damage, and could fly.
>>35613169It's soft alternate history, not hard alternate history.
>>35613152The Hummels seemed to be good enough to keep a stalemate in European fronts until 7th generation knightmare frames dominated it.
>>35612426The impression I'm getting from the EU OVA is that Sutherlands were still the backbone of the Britannian army, with the Gloucesters being used by elite units and officers in lesser numbers.
>>35613237He hasn't said anything that hasn't already been addressed in the thread, though.
>>35613237Panzer Hummels are still dangerous mind you, especially in numbers and when it comes to defending. That's why the E.U has last as long as they did, however on the offensive they're easy to take down when they move out from proper defensive locations, which explains the stalemate.Gun Ru's are just a slightly step up, well armed, dirt cheap, and way more mobile then the Hummel. Still shit, but the Chinese field them in such huge numbers killing one just be a drop in the bucket. They're useful, but not so much for what you guys will probably want to do. Anyway, back to posting for me.
>>35613152>Take a wild guess what would have happened. Really.They would have been blown the fuck out. Of course, I didn't write the show, so this will never happen.>On top of that, your main argument is that our talents compensate for the dropped speed, but wouldn't anything like an autocannon become vastly inaccurate if you don't stand still to aim it?My main argument is that better armor and better guns (remember, the autocannon is still an automatic) shits on better speed/melee and worse guns. A phummel pilot that focuses on speed will just help mitigate the weakness.>Finally, the Panzer Hummel did appear in Code Geass' second season. As you might imagine, it did not in fact save the day or do anything significant and instead jobbed hard to everything with a speed design philosophy.It was killing the shit out of Gloucesters. I've rewatched the scene many times. The battle only turned against the Europeans because Suzaku showed up.The design philosophy for the Panzer Hummel does not work. If it did, they would have made more. If the results it produced weren't shit, we'd have gotten more of those. But it didn't, and the results speak for themselves. It's shit.The EU lost the war because it lacked main characters and scientific geniuses. I never said that the Panzer Hummel could beat, say, Lancelot; I merely asserted that the show's conceit of melee mechs is stupid, and that our character, while still at low-level, could make a Phummel work much better than a Glasgow or Gloucester. If we get access to something, say, 7th generation or higher, then fine. I won't object to that over a 4th generation machine, even if it has a better design philosophy.
>>35613333See: >>35613313 >>35613210And be quiet.
>>35613210>>35613313I see the QM has weighed in on the issue. I will bow out now.
on previous note are we all agreed we shouldget some sort of mask to hide our identity from suzaku and lulu in the future and because i would be awesome
>>35613333Yet in the actual show, it jobs like a motherfucker to every other design philosophy. That's a bit of a problem with your argument, that single scene could be the exception that proves the rule.
>>35613333>The EU lost the war because it lacked main characters and scientific geniusesOut of universe and at the time, but in retrospect they do have some of those in the Code Geass OVA now. The problem seems to be more of a dysfunctional democracy incapable of using its resources properly, rather than not trying to counter the Britannian advantage (the Alexander is basically a response to that) .As for melee mecha being stupid, well...it's quite unrealistic, but the internal logic can be followed through the speed vs. armor sliding scale already discussed before. Whether we want to follow that or not, I think we can make it work with either kind of robot
>>35613407mask for military work and bitching quatro style sunglasses for civi shit
>>35613407Trying too hard.A pair of sunglasses and a bandana will do just fine.
>>35612557The Mordred went armour over dodge and went undefeated through the entire series.Not to mention it had that retarded thing where every surface of it's armour was also a gun.
>>35613474The Mordred had flight and more powerful artillery with the Hadron cannons, plus it almost never fought alone. It was always part of a team or duo.
>>35613407Something like this?
>>35613510Or one of the sillier pre-Char masks from even older robot shows

>>35613474It lost in like the last episode. To a Sutherland. Granted it was being piloted by Orange-kun, but still.
>>35613538We don't have the magnificent hair to pull it off.
>>35613574how do you know!?!
>>35613574i think shirley could pull of a staright haired variation of it
So how did we get into military while being addicted?
>>35613538There's a lot of things about Unicorn I thought were shit, but the mech design, action and that fabulousity were not part of that.
>>35613627It's the brits I think they don't give a shit
>>35613627maybe the military has low standard after the rebellion. and the war with the EU
>>35613646>>35613649I say a mix of both
>>35613210>>35613210After a solid half an hour of being in nothing short of agony the pain subsides and you slowly regain control of your body, proceeding to vomit all over the floor of the infirmary the moment feeling in your throat comes back.The medics rush over and you're force feed some pills and put choke down some water before being allowed to rest for a couple minutes.You're absolutely exhausted but sleep refuses to come to you, your senses feeling dull after sharpness you felt from your adrenaline fueled fight for survival.Eventually one of the medics approaches you."Are you feeling alright Trainee Xinlu?" "Yes." You choke, letting out a cough. "I am now.""I was wondering if you'd like to explain what you injected yourself with back there. I'll have you know that the use of Refrain is a capital offence and you could be kicked out before you even-""It's my medication." You state firmly, straining to pull your head off the pillow to look at the man."Prescribed by who? And for what purpose?" The medic demands."Ugh, this should all be on my damn file! It was prescribed by Dr. Pailsen, as for it's purpose it's to keep me from blacking out and forgetting recent events." You state firmly, the medic's eyes widening in surprise."Dr. Pailsen? You mean the famous brain chemist? You have to be joking, why would he-""Check my bag for the rest of my medication and the paperwork. I'll give you his number if you wish to ask him yourself, he's my therapist." You stare at the medic, head still hurting and your patience gone. He leaves without a word and comes back a couple minutes later."I spoke with Dr. Pailsen and he cleared everything up, I apologize for assuming you were an addict." The medic leaves and you breath a sigh of relief. After a simple check up you're given your duffle bag and allowed to leave the infirmary. It's only 2:00 PM and you've been excused from any activities due to the incident. >(2/3)
>>35613727ah so our doctor gave it to us!
>>35613727canrefrain overide memory loss by geass?
>>35613727>>35613727You can go back to your room and try to get some sleep, do a bit of snooping, or go to the mess hall and try to get some grub and maybe see the other surviving recruits. >Go to bed. You're tired and you've gone through enough shit today already.>Go Snooping. You want names, even if they have to wait you REFUSE to forget this happened.>Go to the Mess Hall, you haven't eaten in hours and whatever you had left in your stomach is on the floor of the infirmary. Chatting with the other survivors couldn't hurt either.
>>35613727Thats a serious thing? Jesus christ how terrifying!
>>35613833>>Go to the Mess Hall, you haven't eaten in hours and whatever you had left in your stomach is on the floor of the infirmary. Chatting with the other survivors couldn't hurt either.
>>35613833>>Go to the Mess Hall, you haven't eaten in hours and whatever you had left in your stomach is on the floor of the infirmary. Chatting with the other survivors couldn't hurt either.Before we go. Is the 5th Pilot still here in the infirmary? Let's stop by and check on him.
>>35613833>Go to the Mess Hall, you haven't eaten in hours and whatever you had left in your stomach is on the floor of the infirmary. Chatting with the other survivors couldn't hurt either.WE NEED FOOD>>35613840ya and it's going to bite us in the ass hard!
>>35613833>Go to the Mess Hall, you haven't eaten in hours and whatever you had left in your stomach is on the floor of the infirmary. Chatting with the other survivors couldn't hurt either.Pace yourself. Char didn't kill the entire Zabi family by rushing things.
>>35613783might be Geass possession like that one Royal Knight.... that caused blackouts and memory loss...alternatively, it could just be a medical condition and nothing remotely related to Geass...
>>35613833Hit the mess hall. We'll start snooping by listening to some rumors.Could give us some hints on where to look for answers.
>>35613833>>35613877>Go to the Mess Hall,>Visit injured pilotAlmost forgot about him. Let's go see.
>>35613906and more people to add to the listhttps://www.youtube.com/watch?v=eNtGZ0HWVTg
>>35613833>FOOD IT CALLS US!
>>35613987ah yes more people to stab!
>>35613877>>35613851>>35613881>>35613884>>35613887>Injured pilot. Remembering the injured pilot they took away on a stretcher you look around the infirmary to see if he's still alive. It's not hard to find him, since everyone else in the infirmary is ether a medic or in a body bag.The guy is pretty banged up, unconscious and bandaged like a god damn mummy. From the looks of it he probably won't be here for much longer, they'll need to send him to a proper medical facility if he wants to stay alive and kicking.Looking at the clip board on the front of his bed you check his name.>Dennzel KruszewskiMaking a note of the name, you leave the injured man to his rest and hopeful recovery before going to the mess hall. You don't bother dropping off your bag, half with the intent of sneaking some food back to your room for later.The mess hall isn't very crowded, but the small wait in line feels like it takes years with the smell of hot food filling every square inch of the tiled room. You load down with spaghetti and meatballs, fresh fruit, and a some pudding before looking around for the other survivors.They're not hard to find, sitting by themselves at a table, looking just about as good as you do. Walking over you think on what you should say...>Just introduce yourself>Ask them all if they're all right>Apologize for not doing more to help them>Say nothing.
>>35614139>>Just introduce yourself
>>35614139>Ask them all if they're all right
>>35614139>Introduce yourself>Ask them all if they're all rightWhy not both?
>>35614139>Just introduce yourselfCurt, professional, to the point.
>>35614139>>Ask them all if they're all right
>>35614150>>35614176>>35614319Deciding just to approach and introduce yourself, you walk up to the table and find that the three survivors sitting down didn't notice your approach to the table."Uh, hi I'm Xinlu Kuu, do you mind if I sit down with you guys?"None of them speak and merely prod at their food like they didn't here you at all. It's not until one of them, a gangly looking young man with short red hair and sunglasses, looks up and sees you that someone responds."Hey, you're that chick who stayed behind to fight those guys!" You wince as the boy says that rather loudly, turning heads from all over the room and drawing more attention on you then you'd like. Immediately he seems to have realized his mistake and he quietly drops his head, just as the the other two trainees bolt their heads up, suddenly realizing who was speaking to them. "Woah, you're still alive? That's great! Scott over here thought you killed yourself when you shot yourself up with that stuff. He thought it was Refrain!" "Shut up Bill! I just assumed she needed uh, insulin shots or something, right?" 'Scott' looks up to you and you just shrug."Yeah, something like that. Anyway, can I sit down? My food it kind of getting cold...""Oh, yeah sorry about that. I'm Scott Washington," The young blond boy says, nudging the much taller and rounder brown haired man next to him. "This is Bill Steiner, don't believe a word he says!"You sit down next to the red head who gives you an awkward, rather apologetic smile for the loudness earlier and pushes up his sunglasses."I'm Rick Astley, nice to meet you Xun-xin, uh-""You can just call me Kuu." You say, taking a bit of your food before asking "How are you guys doing?"Silence falls over the table and you're left to eat your food for a good solid minute before Scott speaks.>(1/2)
>>35614596"To be honest I'm amazed at how I'm still alive...""I'm not amazed at all, if anything I'm amazed at how those red shouldered fuckers are still breathing." Bill growls angrily to himself, taking a bit out of his chicken sandwich as if it were the head of his worst enemy."I'm just happy to be in one piece. I think we owe our lives, or at least good portions of our asses to you Kuu. Didn't really see what you did, but I heard you fucked a lot of things up. We're all fine, but are you?"You pause in thought and frown at the question. >Be honest.>Try to pass it off as nothing.>Act confident
>>35614619>Try to pass it off as nothing.
>>35614619>>Act confidentwere basically the alpha of this trainee batch, gotta act like it
>>35614619>>Try to pass it off as nothing.
>>35614619>>Act confidenttime to establish our Alpha status in our ragtag band of survivors
>>35614619>Act confidenttime to make them ours
>>35614619>Act confident but be honest.
>>35614619>act confident but be honest.
>>35614619>Act confidentDon't act confident, be confident. We kind of did kick all kinds of ass out there.
>>35614619>Try to pass it off as nothing.We really don't need them to worry about that nonsense.
>>35614699>>35614664>>35614655>>35614721>>35614799As much as you were shaken, hurt, and angered from the battle you decide there's no reason to burden the others with your problems when they already have their own to deal with. In fact, you were the one who saved their lives, if anything they're probably hoping you'll turn out to be someone dependable..."I-I-I...I could have killed more of them if I hadn't run out of ammo!" You state, taking a bite of a rather large meatball while getting looks of surprise from everyone at the table."Jesus, you're serious aren't you?" Scott asks from the across the table, eyes locked on you trying to figure out if you're serious or not."Of course I am! I mean I don't think I could have beaten them ALL by myself b-but...If I had had more ammo maybe more of us would be here right now.""The fact anyone besides you is prove of a miracle." Bill says with a shake of his head. "I'm amazed they didn't just gun us down after we got back, I mean how the hell are they going to hide something like this?""I don't know, but I'm just happy we had someone in our group crazy enough to make a different." Rick says with a grin, unzipping his uniform and reaching into his shirt, pulling out a pair of sunglasses."Here, I want you to have these. I told everyone I wore mine because I have sensitive eyes, but to be fair I just feel cooler when I wear them. I only have one extra pair, but I feel you deserve them more then I do.""Huh, thanks." You say, taking the large sunglasses and tucking them away.You sit in silence and eat your lunch, filling your belly and scraping away the leftovers into a small plastic bag you hid in your duffle. Hit with a sudden wave of drowsiness, you think on what to do...>Go to your bunk and get some sleep. You can investigate things when you don't feel like dropping dead.>Talk to the other survivors a bit more, get to know them and see what they know.>Go snooping around for information
>>35614965>Talk to the other survivors a bit more, get to know them and see what they know.gotta get to know our team
>>35614965>Talk to the other survivors a bit more, get to know them and see what they know.
>>35614965>Go to your bunk and get some sleep. You can investigate things when you don't feel like dropping dead.Gotta be well-rested, or we can't perform. And considering what their idea of a basic training exercise is, let's not be caught in less than optimal conditions.
>>35615090>>35615089>>35615073>>35615058As tired as you are, you wanna get to know the others a bit more before you head to bed. After all you only know their names..."I know this is probably a bad time to ask, but why did you join the military?" Rick is the first person to speak up. "Easy. The military pays great, especially when you get into the higher ranks. I can make more in the military then I could working any other job. Sure I'm basically risking dying every waking moment of being employed, but in just a couple years I'll have enough to pay for everything I need to start my music career! And my dad thinks I'm saving up for medical school, ha!""Well I joined to uphold the sanctity and stability of our nation." Scott says with a smile, crossing his arms and trying to act all humble until Bill adds "It was ether this or work in his parent's brewery" "S-shut up! Don't listen to anything that comes out of this guy's mouth, he's a chronic liar! He'll even deny her's related to the Steiner Family!" Bill rolls his eyes and shakes his head. "You do realize that out of all the people in Britannia two families are bound to have the same last name, right?""Yeah but they're nobility, you don't see the average joe running around with the last name Brittania do you?" Scott retorts."The Steiner's art industrialists more then they are nobles. Besides, if I was a member of the Steiner Family I doubt I'd have gotten wrapped up in his mess in the first place." "Well...OK you have a point.""Do you guys have any idea why that fight happened or what's being done? I mean someone's got to be taking legal action or something..." You ask but everyone around the table shakes they're head."I tried meeting with the commander here to tell him what happened, but the guy just told me to 'accept' it was a training accident and move on." Rick explains.>(1/2)
>>35615440So trial by fire.Either that, or we weren't meant to survive. Which means more shit coming our way.
>>35615440"Yeah. I tried asking some other soldiers about it and they're convinced it was just some fucked up training accident and that we're some traumatized dopes who are remembering everything wrong!" Scott picks up the fork from his lunch tray and bends it in half in frustration.Bill just shrugs his shoulders and begins scratching his messy mud colored hair. "This all feels like some kind of cover up, but it doesn't make any damn sense. What's the point of slaughtering a bunch of trainees? I tried looking into see who those Red Shoulder guys were but they all pulled out just an hour or so after the 'simulation ended. Drill Sargent Delson said they were leaving to be questioned, but considering they were taking their Knightmares I have a feeling that's a load of bull."You let out a sigh and run your fingers through your hair. "Well Delson is still on base, right?" You ask."Yeah, why do you ask? Planning on something crazy?" You shrug your shoulders. "Not now I'm not. I'm gonna go to my bunk and sleep on this one..."With a full belly and your exhaustion now becoming overwhelmingly apparent, the simple walk to the bunks feels like a long and arduous one. Upon entering the room you make a beeline for the nearest bed, drop your bag, and collapse onto the padded military mattressYou’re ready to collapse on your bed and drift off into dream land when there’s a sharp vibration near your butt. Letting out a rather embarrassing “Eep!” you reach around and find that it’s just your cellphone ringing.It's Dr. Pailsen...>(2/3)
>>35615649The bigger question is who were in the other Glassglows, including the red shoulders. Cause they died just as well as our unit did. More recruits? Japanese convicts?
>>35615656“Shirley, it’s me. Is everything alright? I got a call from a medic at the Mt. Odake Base asking about your medication.” Hearing your real name feels almost therapeutic coming from the mouth your father's closest friend and your technical legal guardian. “Yes,I'm fine, everything is fine...well no it's not. But I'm not dead and I don't remember everything very clearly." “Alright, it’s obvious from the sound of your voice you’re not in any kind of condition to tell me what happened. Just tell me this, did you have an episode? Did you have to use the drugs?” Pailsen asks, his voice filled with both worry and curiosity.“Yeah I did. It hurt worse then you told me it would and I was basically paralyzed for a half and hour..."“The pain and paralysis are just side effects, unfortunate but necessary side effects. It's obvious the drugs are working and that's good, they should stave off any memory loss provided you administer it during an episode and not afterwards or prior. I can’t say how long the drugs will remain effective though, it could be two more episodes or a hundred before they stop working. When they do your memory is going to deteriorate rapidly.""I know, I know..." You say, laying your head down onto your pillow, knowing full well what could happen to you."If you were anyone but Joseph's daughter I'd have you locked up and treated for whatever in god's unholy name is affecting your mind. However you're dead set on getting to the bottom of your father's death and I'd be a liar if I said I wasn't interested in finding out myself.""The moment the drugs stop working I'll call you, until then there's no need to worry..."And with that you hang up, tuck away your phone, and fall into a empty, dreamless sleep...
>>35615834Convicts more likely. I guess that if those were fresh recruits, they wouldn't be as ready to shoot as these guys were.
