Unfortunately, things were a bit slow going. Not only were they running into multiple obstacles, but tunnels were narrow and winding, and easy to get lost in. And then there was all of your idols' bickering."Oh my god, it stinks so bad!" Sparky grunts."I don't appreciate being knee deep in shit." Melissa grumbles."Technically, this is a storm drain, not a sewer, so this is just accumulated runoff, not sewage." Rochelle explains."I like it. Smells like home." Cole says nostalgically before pausing. "Actually, wait, no. fuck that. I hate this smell.""Goddamn Morgan, not having to deal with all this shit." Julie sighs. "Don't bring me into this." Morgan snaps.>Tell the girls to focus on the mission.>Let them vent.>Other
>>35760189>>Tell the girls to focus on the mission.
>>35760189>>Tell the girls to focus on the mission.Let's do this.
>>35760189>Bicker with them"Mah dick is so sore after last night..."
>>35760189>>Let them vent.I love their dialogue
>>35760189>Tell the girls to focus on the missionGod forbid what we find in any type of sewer
>>35760189I think Merc need to update his the loadout. Doesn't Sparky have new Armour? Also Hornet is not part of our vehicles?
>>35760515My guess is that it's something akin to The Valley of Defilement, or Blighttown. Where all unwanted things are tossed away, even people.Beware of improperly disposed...experiments and test subjects.
>>35760189>Tell the girls to focus on the mission.Focus, people. Bitch after the mission

>>35760595>>35760622Cole's OTHER sisters.
I feel that if we butt in their going to vent their frustrations on us. I think their going to make us smelly.
>>35760645Like eevee!Ones with a water, fire, psychic, light, ice and bio mods.
>>35760691Guys, any appropriate alt!Cole sister with different power gene mod?
>>35760189>Tell the girls to focus on the mission.Save the complaints for when you're out, girls
>>35760189>Tell the girls to focus on the mission.
>>35760189"Girls. Focus." You snap. "You're all on mission right now.""You heard the Producer." Rochelle says."Okay, okay." Cole rolls her eyes. Your idols proceed through the sewers, quietly this time, with the only sounds being the sloshing and splashing of the rancid sewer water beneath their feet. Finally, they come up to a steel panel, no doubt covering up an opening."Hey, uh, are we under their building yet?" Rochelle asks, looking up at the panel. "This looks like a point of entry.""I think you should be under their garage at this point." You say, referencing their positions on the map with the blueprints. However, there was a bit of a discrepancy between them, so it may not be entirely accurate.""Maybe we should go in further for other entrances?" Melissa suggests."But we might run into a dead end." Julie warns.>Breach here.>Keep going.>Other
>>35760758>Keep going.More searching!
>>35760758have cole use bio-senser to see if their any staff up
>>35760758>Keep going.Never know what we can find down here. Hell, someone could've thrown out a perfectly good plasma rifle.
>>35760758>>OtherUse Melissa's Seismic Sensor and Cole's Bio-senor to detect better openings.
>>35760758>>Keep going.Search we got time for it and we can always double back here.
>>35760798We're under a ton of dirt and concrete... I really doubt it's going to work here.
>>35760758>Keep going.Better safe than sorryAlso, since Merc might be delayed with updates, why don't we talk about some ideas made during the week, like the Himawari-authored idol smut, and the (belated) CIMQ Halloween event
>>35760758>>35760798>>35760831This. Better to have them use both for better detection.Also Dammit Merc, I wanted Maid thread today.Also Guys here's a thought Idols finding a bottle of wine and underestimate it and get drunk what will be the reaction of all of them.
>>35760758i support this>>35760831
>>35760758>Keep going.Don't see the harm in it. Worst case scenario, they need to turn around and walk back.
>>35760758>>Keep going.Merc... you said you weren't going to run today.
>>35760879drunken gibberish about how they are all in love with the producer
>>35760870Smut involves Producer related smut and their is a small demand for it among idols both within and outside of Clover. Also why do I find it fitting that the Idols will make cole dress up a Misaka Mikoto from to aru majutsu no index?
>>35760951Indeed, but what scenarios would the smut explore?Any ideas?
>>35760758"Keep going, girls." You say. "Maybe we'll find something better.""Roger." Rochelle nods and waves the rest of her girls forward.>roll 1d20

>>35761032i love you so much right now
>>35760858No but it could give us a rough layout of the sewer and possible opening. It's worth a shot. >>35760930Rochelle and Morgan will have Boob envy and will molest Julie. Cole will be out of it and have a few sparks flying by.Niko will laugh at poor Julie. Rin will try to flirt with the Producer or join in drinking/drinking games.Melissa will be quiet and then try to curl up next to the Producer which will react a similar response from the other idols
>>35761032Dice Gods have spoken! Talking about Lewd things and rolling dice pleases them!
>>35761062do you or anyone for that matter have the god wills it gif
>>35760981Knowing Himawari it will be Dr.StylesxProducerxStig smut. But she may dabble having Idolx Producer smut.
>>35760981Not including P-san deciding to Direct Control idols to see what they're doing, only to be dragged into one of their "Activities" while controlling someone, plenty.There's P-san pressing his body against Morgan's small, boyish frame while teaching her how to shoot a rifle. And fine tuning Melissa's augs while admiring her bare legs.

>>35761159>Y>>35761185The world is not ready!
>>35761062Then we must be as lewd as can be!We must post what sexy scenarios we believe Himawari has planned for our innocent idols!I'll go first:>Cole would be straight steamy shower sex>Morgan would get railed on the rooftop, likely after plenty of vodka>Melissa's would be a quick one, somewhere the other girls can't discover her and P-san>Julie's would be after stopping some criminal scum, blowing off steam by blowing the producer>Sparky would get some bondage action, as punishment for the kitchen explosion(Julie would be helping the Producer with the punishment).>Niko would get it during dance or song practice>Rochelle would be the most aggressive, having K-Zwolf restrain the Producer while she takes the P for herself>Rin would be the most debauched, engaging in sex in the missionary position while holding hands and with the lights turned off, because it's always the innocent ones...
>>35761185You go too far, you am play god!
>>35760870Cole dressed up as Misaka MikotoJulie dressed up as Robo-CopRin will dress up as a Fairy PrincessNiko will dress up as a VampireRochelle will dress up in a uniform similar to P-san old unitMelissa will be Frankenstein's Monster (Type-moon version) or Edward ElricSparky will dress up the Bombs from Mario.Morgan will dress up as cat girl or Katya from SW89>>35761268I would think Julie will try to take P-san during a sparing match
>>35761388My idea is that they go to a haunted house that's being used by a horror themed company to kidnap other idols and hold them for ransom.The costume party is for after we shut down their operation and recruit their cutest, spookiest idol.
>>35761159The girls move forward slowly, with K-Zwolf trailing behind. After a few more twists and turns, and a few grates opened up with some special application of a bit of thermite, and eventually they come up to a set of stairs. Rochelle pauses and quietly waves for Cole and Melissa to take point. Cole quietly creeps up to the door and fires up her biosensor."Do you sense anything?" Melissa whispers."Nothing on the door." Cole shakes her head. "This door is completely analog. I think we can just break it open.""What about behind?""No life signs. Some faint electronics, but I don't think anything too threatening.""All right. Melissa, breach it." Rochelle orders.Melissa then reaches forward with her augmetic arm and rips the lock out and the door swings open easily."Holy SHIT." Cole blinks. "JACKPOT!"You switch to her feed, and see that you've actually broken into what appeared to be Rose Entertainment's armory. Just... lines of weapons stacked on racks and on the walls. The door was apparently hidden behind a false wall, which was why it wasn't noticed."What do we do?" Rochelle asks.>See what we can scavenge from it.>Destroy it all.>Other
>>35761539Is she a Latina or Spanish girl who's spooky costume is a skeleton dressed as la dia de muerta?
>>35761583>See what we can scavenge from it.LEWT!
>>35761583>>See what we can scavenge from it.And prep it to blow. Honestly, that might just be enough.
>>35761185I don't know a thing about Puchis but after a 3-min research it seems they developed quirks or special abilitiesWhat will be each puchi idols quirks? . >>35761539One idols clutches the hem of P-san's shirt and they all start doing it as well.
>>35761583>>See what we can scavenge from it.
>>35761583>See what we can scavenge from it.And set the rest to boom.
>>35761583>>See what we can scavenge from it.and destroy the rest
>>35761604Maybe, but she has to be spooky, to appeal to the horror idol fans
>>35761583>See what we can scavenge from it.>OtherCole and Melissa pay attention to their sensors.Cole also maps out the electrical system to see where their security is controlled. If we can jack it, then we have the advantage.Or just EMP the entire place if it's too hard.
>>35761583>See what we can scavenge from it.We'll rig to blow when we go.
>>35761583>See what we can scavenge from it.Take what we can, and destroy what we can't
>>35761583>See what we can scavenge from it.That's almost one of the mission objectives right there. Some more explosives in the building and we'll have successfully crippled their facilities.
>>35761703Dats sum roight proppa dakka
I wonder if the armoury includes their armour stockpile.Powered Armour?
>>35761753Yeah, me too.
>>35761753That depends on what we can scavange, and how good our roll is, by extension
>>35761626there is already a drawing of puchis and some one already came up with a list(if some one has the drawing pls post it)
>>35761583"All right girls, spread out and see if there's anything we can use." You say. "Just remember, you take it, you gotta be able to carry it back. And make it fast."The girls sort of quietly enter the room and spread out, taking a look at ever weapon and rack they pass.>roll 1d20

>>35761820Hey. If we star power this, can we give EACH idol a boost, since its a team task, and they're all doing the same thing?Cuz damn, uh, nat 20 to mediocre rolls and all that
>>35761798Here you go!
>>35761892Actually, can't star power be used for rerolls?
>>35761813Your girls stalk the aisles. However, they don't really find anything that you can't get easily on your own. Basic assault rifles, handguns, grenades, spare ammunition, stuff like that. Not really stuff worth going through the trouble of stealing."Hey, hey! I found something!" Julie hisses.The rest of the girls scurry over, where you see a large, sealed vault. No doubt storing all of Rose Entertainment's good stuff."Huh." Sparky examines the safe. "This is some pretty thick armor. I think I can blast through it, but it ain't going to be quiet, and there's a chance the stuff inside might get damaged.""I CAN ATTEMPT TO HACK THE LOCK VIA MY UPLINK WITH HIMAWARI."

>>35761965>Hack the vault door. While he does that, the girls should go around and disable most of their stuff. And Sparky should start setting down explosives.
>>35761965i support this >>35761991
>>35761991>>35762008Sparky should be placing booby traps as well. If they try to arm themselves, they'll get something extra.
>>35761965>Hack the vault doorAlso we can probably prepare if things go horribly wrong
>>35761965>>Hack the vault door. >>OtherHave Sparky rig the rest of the stockpile with a remote detonator. Distraction, hoooo!
>>35761968>stigOh gowds. Ok, here you go.>>35742824 >>35743897Enjoy everyone!
>>35761991Actually we should have sparky rig the vault too.If theres no alarm, we get good, hurrah.If theres an alarm, we blow up their good shit anyways.
>>35762001>Himawari hasn't failed so far.Himawari needs an idol promotion herself. SHe's seriously got the stuff whenever she's put on the spot.Hell, i bet she even sings to herself in her workshop by now, with all the infectious pop-culture shoptunes thrown around the work place(and the nature of the competition in general)
>>35762115As well as mine the entrance to that armor so the first person in get's a surprise.>>35762128I don't think she's interested in idoling. It would require she has to be in front of fans and shower.
>>35762115I think what we really want is, uh.Ideal playout: Open vault, no alarm, no demolitions. Steal everything, rig with explosives to trigger when opened, reseal. Since idols are highly likely to be present the next time they open it, don't use LETHAL explosives: Pyrotechnics, flashbangs, lots of smoke, anythign to DEMORALIZE THEM - and give the impression that what was left inside was blown the fuck up as a spiteful gesture.
>>35762128Nah. market her as a cyber idol. You'll mostly only see her in the online space, doing live hacking and all that.
>>35762165That... is actually a pretty good idea.
>>35762128she stated that she dosent want to be an idol when we first talked to her
>>35762062way to stig it to the man>>35762165that's hella illegal to broadcast though, since its basically admitting to a crime.What about as a professional vocaloid wrangler?
>>35762187Well i suppose we should respect her wishes, but we can always ask her if her opinion's changed later, now that she's a few missions under her belt.
>>35762165Virtual hacker idol...maybe with a vocaloid avatar? I think this is an untapped market for idols, gentlemen.
>>3576216510/10 idea.She doesn't have to leave and can just pretend to be an AI.
>>35762165I'd think she'd be best used as she is at the moment. Well maybe she could also be used to test the waters of the NEET community to see how appealing our idols are to them. They may not shower, they may not clean their rooms, and they sure as hell don't leave their houses, but they buy merchandise.
>>35761965"K-Zwolf, work with Himawari to hack the vault door." You order."AFFIRMATIVE." K-Zwolf strides forward, hooking a wire into a port on the vault's electronic lock. "ESTABLISHING UPLINK WITH HQ.""All right, I'm in." Himawari says.>roll 1d20

>>35762310Himawari continues to prove she was the best hire this entire quest.
>>35762253I like the idea, though I'm not sure we can publicly hack things legally. Besides, watching someone hack things probably isn't the most interesting thing to watch anyway. Maybe we could have her play videogames instead?

>>35762310Glorious.So, super fighting robot? Fancy gun?Since it's DeRosa and the crew are taken from Bravely Default, rediculously scummy drugs?
I wonder what the reaction of Rose's producer will be when he finds out we basically cut him off from all of his weapons.
>>35762377Nothing was inside the safe
>>35762377Nah. Android duplicates. You know how they always have a penchant for showing up at the wrong places?... turns out they CAN be in two places at once, and we just got PRIME blackmail material.....
>>35762404Nope, we got prime material to FAKE lewd things as well as illegal stuff and post them online....But we're the better person. So we won't do that.
>>35762390We sent their combat idols on a wild goose chase.They'll come running back with their combat loadout.
>>35762425Well, minus whatever they took with them. Assuming they specialize to the task at hand, we get the stuff they might take for a heavier or lighter assignment. Maybe even keys to a car they didn't use.I mean, come on, blowing up someone elses base and taking off in their own sportscar with explosions at your back has STYLE to it
>>35761539How will the costume party be like?
>>35762425They come back with their combat loadout for a gang riot on one of their money sources.That's a completely different ballgame from a combat loadout for taking on a concert that contains multiple combat idols and a corporation that's hell bent on protecting those idols for control of the city.
>>35762310The lock beeps several times, leaving you wonder if the hacking process was working or not. The panel suddenly flashes red, briefly making you nervous that the process failed. However, the panel final goes green, and the vault slowly opens."YES!" You hear Himawari cheer.However, as the vault opens, you find that it's mostly empty, no doubt due to the weapons within being taken out. However, you do find...>roll 1d20
>>35762583Well look at it this way.When sending our combat idols into a combat situation, have we ever changed their loadout from heavy to light?They would bring their preferred weapons and loadouts.

So any scary movies for our idol's Halloween party?I suggest John Carpenter's The Thing.
>>35762750>The ThingGOAT horror movie.They did everything right, and still failed. It was so brilliantly thought out.
>>35762750Alien, theatrical cut.
>>35762778Good choice.Maybe we can do some B-list movies for the rifftracks the idols make.
>>35762750Poltergeist, the Exorcist, and the Conjuring.Just because the Tombs girls I believe won't be phased by aliens or serial killers However, something that can be punched, stabbed or electrocuted might freak them out
>>35762750>The Thing>The Fog>AlienSo many favorites... which to pick...
>>35762789YES, we need Mystery Idol Theater 3000
>>35762815Videotape it and broadcast it.
>>35762750what about something from Stephen King
>>35762834Producer likes to keep the sweet moments to himself. If only the idols finds his stash of cute/embarrassing pictures of them
>>35762841This is the future, right?Has a Dark Tower movie been made yet?
>>35762750>>35762841Show them Carrie and joke about how the mission at the high school seemed similar to one of the scenes. I mean pigs blood, and there just happened to be a superpowered girl in both
>>35762789Army of Darkness?We don't want something like actually scary that might give tweens nightmares, but something jumpy and corny they can laugh about later after the scary of the moment is over.SO!Army of darkness, Warm Bodies, Shaun of the Dead?
>>35762867Can't forget Ghostbusters.
>>35762853what about Salem's lot or children of the corn
What Halloween costume does each idol wear?
>>35762905We answered this already:>>35761388
>>35762867But then if Producer stays over to watch movies they all want to cuddle with him since they have nightmares
>>35762926>>35762932Oh people agreed with my suggestions.That's surprising.
>>35762926>>35762932Wouldn't Morgan be better with a Ghillie Suit?And maybe Sparky should dress as another known blond explosion connoisseur?
>>35762980Ghille suit seems more like work though.
Sorry about the delay. I'm writing the update now.
>>35762750Well if we do Christmas movies, let's watch Die Hard.
>>35763002its ok we are just bullshiting
>>35763001What? You got something against blonde Tiny Tina?
>>35762867Army of Darkness is an excellent choice, but make sure to show them Evil Dead 2 first. It isn't strictly necessary viewing for AoD, but it's a great movie in its own right.

>>35763117>>Have an idol carry the gear back to the rendezvous.KZ Wolf, do your stuff.
>>35763116Sorry, cuddle was the wrong word.I meant latch onto him due to fear/nightmares. I didn't mean anything lewd or sexual by it for the msot part
>>35763117>JUMPJETS AND FIREHell yeah>Have an idol carry the gear back to the rendezvous
Okay, so who should get the Jumpjet? It offers some protection, and has mobility.I would think Morgan could be able to use it to get to vantage points, but that would waste the defensive capabilities when she can just use a jump pack or something.So who do you think would benefit the most from this?
>>35763117>>Have an idol carry the gear back to the rendezvous.Kwolf the packmule.Not really sure how effective flamethrower will be maybe Jule will use it properly. and jetpack for Morgan
>>35763192Having played a lot of X-COM in my day, you always give the sniper the flying armor. Always.
>>35763192morgans thr best bet for rapid relocation as well as providing some better armour for her use.
>>35763117>>Have your idols carry the gear with them.Has K-Z wolf still got the heavy assault loadout? If so then have him carry it.
>>35763192Morgan should get the jumpjet, since she'll be on the rooftops anywayAs for the flamer, maybe Melissa, since she's all about close combat
>>35763210Well it is called Archangel after all, I dare say XCOM would be a good indicator.
Uh...were we here to steal loot? Is this mission accomplished?
>>35763210Nah, you give the Sniper the grapple armour and flying armour goes to your explosives guy.
>>35763247No we were here to wreck their shit, We're just stealing the good bits first.
>>35763247Nah, we're here to royally fuck up DeRosa's day as payback for trying to assassinate Rin.
>>35763247nah, we're here to fuck up their place.
>>35763247steal loot, blow shit up, blow more shit upso about 1/3
>>35763247Nope. Not even close to being done. This was just a nice bonus. Time to find all the other nice stuff that's nailed to the building and blow it all up.
>>35763247No, mostly just cause as much havoc as possible. This moment of serendipity just aided us at the same time while hindering the competition.
>>35763251Hmm, Archangel with Typhoon = carpet explosives.
>>35763117>OtherCan't Z-Wolfie carry some of this?otherwise>Have your idols carry the gear with them.Using the flame thrower is a nice cherry on top as we leave to burn this place down behind us.
>>35763251Bah. Your explosives guy is secondary. Sniper first.
>>35763279Nah, Sparky's all about demolition, so she'd benefit more from ghost armor so she can get to the structural weakpoints
>>35763210>>35763214>>35763233Not to mention the enhanced strength and physical attributes are enhanced.
>>35763304She needs memetic skin and titan armor.
>>35763261>>35763266>>35763267>>35763272>>35763273>>35763278>>35763279I love it when we can all agree on a plan.
>>35763317>genemods>Not going full MECboyYou are dissapointing
>>35763117"All right, one of you grab that gear and haul it to the rendezvous." You say. "The rest of you continue the mission as planned. Sparky, you know what to do.""That I do!" Sparky cackles as she starts laying explosives all throughout the armor, particularly near the ammo.>Choose who to carry the gear back.
>>35763314Yeah. Honestly our other idols spend way too much time indoors on operations to benefit from this fully.Giving it to Morgan makes it so she can function better without support, giving her the ability to reposition or retreat quickly as well as additional protection if she gets attacked.
>>35763334If there's one thing anyone can agree with, is maximizing the amount of destruction>>35763350I'm going to say Morgan on this, I can't imagine sniping being useful in a building>watch as someone BTFO's me on this
>>35763350>MelissaWe need Julie for tanking and Sparky for exploding, so that leaves Melissa, Rochelle, and Cole.Of the three, we'll need Rochelle's operating skills and Cole might help with frying any security systems, so Melissa's the best choice
>>35763350Morgan. Get back and see if you can put the armor on if you have time.
>>35763350Morgan is set up outside, right?
>>35763378>>35763395>>35763394she is outside
>>35763399>"Goddamn Morgan, not having to deal with all this shit." Julie sighs.>"Don't bring me into this." Morgan snaps.Seems that way.
>>35763350Ya know what? >Grab everything, all the good guns, ammo, electronics. >Then flood the place with sewer water and set it ablaze with flame and explosions.
>>35763404Yeah, apparently I can't read context, this guy here>>35763378>>35763350Melissa
>>35763350Z-Wolf. He's a quadruped robot. He should be able to carry quite a bit of gear.
>>35763350Kzwolf. Have him be a pack mule
>>35763350>>35763399>>35763404Ah, sorry. Then KZ-wolf then.
>>35763350>KZwolfor if it has to be an idol>Melissa
>>35763352Not to mention being able to carry more stuff (i.e. weapons, ammo, etc.). So in general, suitability increases.
>>35763422We would have to airlift all this crap outta here. Wait, you know, that might not be such a bad idea...
>>35763350K-Zwolf if possible. If not, Melissa.
>>35763350>>Choose who to carry the gear back.According to this, uh sparky's only wearing a ballistic vest. How quickly could we swap it onto her?Also cole and julie aren't using their underbarrel mounts on their gear - just equip the flame projector and continue.Don't waste time humping gear to the extraction, just equip and use it.
>>35763350Wait, I'm just wondering. Can we attach the flamethrower now? It would be nice to have something against entrenched enemies.
>>35763488It's not just the flamer and jetsuit, we also got an armory's worth of guns to sell to Marcus
>>35763502No we didn't. They don't have hammerspace, you know.
>>35763488>sparky's only wearing a ballisticShe shouldn't be. We bought her better armor for this op.>julieShe isn't an AR. She's using an SMG and the only things in this quest that seem to have under barrel mounts are the ARs.>ColeShould have one I swear we bought three of the fuckers.
>>35763592>Merc>Updating pastebinsetc etc
>>35763488I like this idea. Nothing demoralizes enemy combatants in urban fight like a gout of flame. Of course, this also means burning the building down, but it isn't like we weren't planning that anyway.
>>35763350"K-Zwolf, take the gear out." You order."AFFIRMATIVE."The girls quickly load the gear into a bag and tie to K-Zwolf's back. The Cyberhound then bounds back through the hidden door."All right, where to next?" Rochelle asks.>Explore the building further.>Return to the garage.>Other
>>35763638>>Explore the building further.gotta find places to plant suff!
>>35763638>>Explore the building further.Setting explosives as we go.

>>35763638>>Explore the building further.
>>35763638>>Explore the building further.Maybe find more shit.Kind of disappointed we didn't find more loot.
>>35763638>>Return to the garage.Blow up the vehicles so they cannot pursue.
>>35763638>OtherHave Cole scan the building. If we can find the security hub, we can turn the building's security system against them.
>>35763638>Explore the building further.Wondering if there's anyone here to gag, bag and cuff. More loot.
>>35763661We found a jetpack and a compact flamethrower. That's pretty damn good all things considered.
>>35763638>explore the building further
>>35763638>>OtherLook for more lewt inside the armory.Also look for documentation, lets see what got checked out.
>>35763661Don't be greedy. Jetpack is nice and whole lot better than nothing.
>>35763663>Blow up the vehicles so they cannot pursue.This is a good plan.
>>35763638>Explore the building further.
>>35763741You know beyond the one they took to deal with the bikers...
>>35763663Isn't that what we have a fully armed gunship for?
>>35763760But losing so many vehicles is gonna put a major dent in their finances.
>>35763763well, ideally, they don't know WHO did this and the gunship tips our hand so....
>>35763803Pretty sure we ain't the only outfit in this town with a VTOL bird, anon. I remember that magical girl squad we're chummy with has one.
>>35763638"All right, set those on timer and move through the rest of the compound." You say. "Move!"Your girls quickly and quietly pile out of the armory and into the hallway outside. Rochelle takes a quick look both ways and gives the "all clear" sign."Cole, can you sense anything?""Hmmmm." Cole closes her eyes. "I sense... four people on this floor. Two on the second. Third looks like it's magnetically shielded. I can't see a thing in there."You do a quick headcount of your idols. Currently, you had Rochelle, Cole, Julie, Melissa, and Sparky available. It was probably only a matter of time before you intrusion is detected, so you have to move fast.>Clear the first floor.>Clear the second floor.>Clear the third floor.>Split your idols up.>Other
>>35763869Yup, I imagine most of the big leaguers do, or something comparable.
>>35763894>>Clear the third floor.Probably the "Control Room" or some important facility.
>>35763894>Clear the second floor.
>>35763894>Clear the first floor.And set bombs, we can level this entire building that way.
>>35763894>>Clear the second floor.
>>35763894>Clear the third floor
>>35763894>Split your idols up.Rochelle, Melissa, and Sparky clear the first floor, with Julie and Cole clearing the second.After both are clear and Sparky sets some charges on first floor's weakpoints, both teams converge on the third floor
>>35763894>Clear the third floor.>OtherSparky, do your thing and leave surprises behind.
>>35763894>> otherMelissa, siescmic sensor pleaseMagnetically shielded my ass.Lets get some details on that 3rd floor.
>>35763894>>Clear the first floor.If we're going loud, let's neutralize the largest number of hostiles. And rig the foundations with high explosives while we're at it.
>>35763894>Clear the first floor.
>>35763964>Clear the third floor.
>>35763894"Head up to the third floor." You say. "I want to see what they're hiding up there."With that, your idols begin moving up the stairwell. Fortunately, they don't run into any resistance. On the third floor, they come up to a hallway leading to an armored door with a viewing port made out of extremely thick glass, which you assume to be bulletproof. An electronic keypad sits at the side."Melissa?" Rochelle turns to the augmented girl."On it." Melissa stomps her augmetic foot on the ground to trigger its seismic sensor as she probes the interior of the building."Whatever it is, it's behind a lot of thick armor and shock absorbers." Melissa shakes her head. "I can't get a clear idea of what's in there, either.">Have Sparky blast the door.>See if Cole can short out the door.>Leave the door and clear another floor.>Other

>>35764174"Okay Cole, you're up." You say. "See if you can work your magic on that door.""Whatever you say." Cole grunts as she walks up, her body glowing blue as she builds up an electrical charge.>roll 1d20

>>35764715>STAR POWER SPENTCole hits the door with a massive electrical charge. You can see the lock panel go crazy as it overloads from the stress before finally exploding with a loud POP. "Guys, just warning you." Jenner calls in. "Stig reported that DeRosa's combat idols are already headed back to base. Whatever you're doing, you need to do it fast."Melissa rushes forward and pulls the now disabled security door open, grunting with the effort. Julie is the first inside, shield up. However, it really wasn't necessary. The moment your idols move in, you see three half dressed girls shriek and flee deeper into the building. Looking around, you figure you've just broken into the building's living quarters. You also see DeRoso himself as he walks into the entry hall. Even though he shouldn't be able to recognize your idols under their masks, he nevertheless pales in fear and surprise at the sight and he bolts back from where he came.>Chase after the idols.>Chase after DeRosa.>Split up to chase both. >Trash the place to send a message.>Withdraw.

>>35765167>>35765175>>35765186>>35765187Trashing the place is good but I think Derosa will still be an asshole and try to find the ones who did this. Also revenge for Rin
>>35765120>Trash the place to send a messageGet in, get out. We're on more of a time limit than before
The idea of the idols all wearing different masks to conceal their identities is giving me Payday vibes. I like it.
>>35765120>Split up to chase both.Start tossing flash bangs to stun them.Also, Sparky should be planting bombs so we can literally blow this joint, but that's already a given.
>>35765212>Girls, the thermal drill, go get it.
>>35765194How is it Murderhobo. I was hoping for like a plane we can hijack or something and we found a indoor hanger
>>35765207Don't sink to his level. Besides, Rin is fine
>>35765231You've been whining about more loot for hours.
>>35765207Well, once we withdraw, Sparky can set off the bombs in the armory to cover our tracks. Maybe do critical structural damage so the building will have to be torn down or spent major $$$ to fix it.
>>35765232He tried to murder her. He tried to have our daughteru killed, anon.The least we can do is give the bastard a black eye.
>>35765237What are you talking about? I only mention it like once before but that was the low rolls from the initial armory
>>35765247True, foundation damage (not mentioning trying to fix up the sewers) should cost a crap ton of cash.
>>35765252Like we'll stoop to his levelRunning him into crippling debt with the cost of fixing his shit will be enough
>>35765252Just toss flashbangs at him. It'll hurt like hell.
>>35765273Might not be you, but someone was.
>>35765252>He tried to murder her. He tried to have our daughteru killed, anon.>The least we can do is give the bastard a black eye.>>35765282>Running him into crippling debt with the cost of fixing his shit will be enoughThe smarter move is to kidnap his idols, actually.Without them, he can't make revenue - force them to miss a few big performances, etc.Or, hell, just ransom them back to him.We CAN go after his idols without stooping to his level.
>>35765282I feel bad for his idols since they will be run ragged though
>>35765279I do want to hurt DeRosa, but I want to do it where it hurts the worst. His bank account. The building repairs/replacement and the loss of his armory will be felt for a long time.
>>35765301I feel like I'm the only that voted to go straight for that. They're running money. The money is running away. Go after the money!
>>35765299What is wrong about acquiring loot? People were talking about it a lot when we enter the armory.
>>35765301With the cost of repairing his office, i doubt he'll be able or willing to pay the ransom>>35765307Such is life in the idol industry
>>35765120>You also see DeRoso himself as he walks into the entry hallTrash the place to send a message.HOly shit!He was probably in his office! Raid his files and shit.Snag the computer, burn it, cripple the book, or just get finances we can dig for his support network with.
>>35765301Now you're thinking anon. Ruining his base won't do squat if he has any insurance, which any sane businessman in his position would have. If we strip him of his source of income, however, that'll throw a major wrench in his capacity to do anything.
>>35765307>>35765317Hell, just imagine trying to rebuild after that.>>35765325That was serendipity, now that were in full mission mode we don't exactly have the luxury of time to do so.
>>35765328>With the cost of repairing his office, i doubt he'll be able or willing to pay the ransomYes that's the entire point. You force him out of business.Also its highly likely he'll get an insurance payout from trashing the office FYI - he could come back from this STRONGER - so you need to hit him everywhere overall.
>>35765325There's a time and a place for loot. If you start loot whoring in a place or media not appropriate for it once it is past a certain point.
>>35765345The problem is, if we kidnap his idols and demand a ransom he'll know we did it. And he will still have perfectly capable combat idols. And if he thinks that he is going to go out of business, he's going to try to take us with him.
>>35765120>. Looking around, you figure you've just broken into the building's living quarters>>35765120>"Guys, just warning you." Jenner calls in. "Stig reported that DeRosa's combat idols are already headed back to base. Whatever you're doing, you need to do it fast."WAITThese are his PERFORMANCE idols.
Guys we want to hurt DeRosa, not screw over the idols who live there.
>>35765381Yes. Who the hell do you think they are?
>>35765381>These are his PERFORMANCE idols.BUENO
>>35765345This guy gets it. Even if we manage to empty his bank account (which won't happen thanks to insurance coverage) he won't be stopped until we strip him of his income. The best way to put him on the street for good is to do both.Hell, even if he can't pay us our ransom we can just let the girls go. The point is to bleed him dry.
>>35765381Awesome, get the time to grab them and make bank.
>>35765376>>he'll know we did itOh come on, those electricity powers are a dead giveaway anyway
>>35765387But the best method of hurting DeRosa is through capturing his idols.
>>35765376>demand a ransom he'll know we did itI'll be honest. Don't care. He can try. He can scream. He do whatever he thinks he can but he'll get his teeth kicked in again.
>>35765345See >>35765376and >>35765381Even if we kidnap the idols, he'll still have his combat idols to try and kill our girlsThat's why we just bring down the building: It cripples him while giving us deniability
>>35765417Mate, we are in a tricky position of possibly getting into the big leagues. We have to look spotless.
>>35765120Your idols make a move to chase them, but you stop them."Girls, focus! We're on a timer, so don't get distracted trying to chase them!" You snap. If the security measures you've run into so far were any indication, you had no doubt DeRosa and his idols may have secondary defenses or some kind of panic room set up. "Just trash whatever you can find!""Sparky, you're up." Rochelle says."Yesssss!" Sparky cackles as she takes out handfuls of grenades and starts tossing them into every room she can find. She even drops a few incendiaries, igniting a few other rooms and triggering the fire sprinklers."Producer, I see a VTOL incoming. I might be able to-" You then hear Morgan spit a Russian curse."Morgan! What's wrong?" You ask."One of the girls in the VTOL spotted me and took a shot!" Morgan scowls.>Then shoot back!>Reposition!>Other
>>35765431>Reposition!>Then shoot back!Always reposition if you've been spotted.
>>35765431>>Reposition!Get the hell out of there
>>35765431>>Then shoot back!Knock the bird down.
>>35765431>Then shoot back!Eye for an eye!
>>35765431>>Then shoot back!>>Reposition!
>>35765431>Then shoot back!
>>35765391But being the petty bastard he is, he'll make try his hardest to take us down with him, probably using his combat Idols to ruin our big gig.>>35765395The public at large don't really know about her powers. Otherwise Umbrella would be breathing down our necks>>35765417The entire point of doing this was to ensure that he doesn't try to fuck with our big concert. If we fuck up in a way that he knows it is us, he will do everything in his power to fuck us over.
>>35765343That and the loss of his armory that could be counted in the thousnds if not millions of dollers is just a nice touch too.>>35765431Shit! they saw her!>Reposition!then>Then shoot back!
>>35765431Snap-shot, then reposition.
>>35765431>Reposition!>OtherWhere is OUR VTOL? It should be countering theirs!
>>35765431>Reposition!Better for her to clear off the roof and line up a shot from somewhere else instead.
You know, I have a feeling that we should review Clover's security ASAP after this mission.
>>35765463good point! I want to add this to my vote!>>35765479
>>35765431>Then shoot back!>Reposition!Be a distraction. Distract them for a while then come down to the rendezvous
>>35765490And the blueprint layouts. I hate to think we have a forgotten back door access to our place as well.
>>35765490Well, to be fair, the only reason we stormed into the living area was because of how well defended and mysterious it was.That being said, you're probably right.
>>35765490that sounds like a fairly reasonable thing to do. I mean if getting through the sewers surprised them this hard I can imagine it can happen to us as well
>>35765405Yeah but it feels like we might've broken some unspoken rule.
>>35765614Killing Idols is a unspoken rule I think.Not this
>>35765431"Reposition, Morgan. You're no good to us if you're spotted!""Roger." Morgan says reluctantly as she packs up her rifle and rolls into cover just as another sniper shot lances out at her."What do we do?" Rochelle asks.>Head for the roof for extraction.>Get back to the sewers and escape.>Head down trash the garage before we leave.>Other
>>35765614We have not. The unspoken rule is not to attack with intent to kill, just incapacitate or capture. An unspoken rule he himself broke.
>>35765650>>Get back to the sewers and escape.After all, we should have our escape path nice and covered in explosions.
>>35765650>Head down trash the garage before we leave.
>>35765650>>Head for the roof for extraction.Enemy idols on ground floor, Hostile VTOL above....We're on the 3rd floor.
>>35765650>Head down trash the garage before we leave.then>Get back to the sewers and escape.and blow up the armory!
>>35765650>Get back to the sewers and escape.And get ready to blow up the garage
>>35765650They got stuff in the air already, doubt roof extraction would be good at this time, and as much as i would LOVE to have more collateral damage, I think we need to pull out now>Get back to the sewers and escape
>>35765650>>Head down trash the garage before we leave.
>>35765650>>Head down trash the garage before we leave.Well we've missed our chance now to do any significant damage to DeRosa, might as well slash the tires on his car on the way out.
>>35765650>OtherBroadcast on a open frequency that we planted a shit load of bombs and we are not sure where all of them are, so everybody better run and not stop us, or they blow prematurely.I trust Sparky has been planting enough.
>>35765650>Head down trash the garage before we leave.Then take the sewers while everything explodes
>>35765674>Hostile VTOL above>Heading to the roof for extraction
Wait, isn't our VTOL configured as a gunship at the moment? Why is it not engaging the other VTOL? Or not blowing up the garage for us?
>>35765757Lack of votes
>>35765757It really should be engaging the vtol just keeping it from landing or being near the building.
>>35765757Because the garage, being part of a former armory, is too hardened and engaging the VTOL risks killing the combat idols onboard
>>35765779Don't need to be aiming to hit. Just to scare off.
>>35765650>Head down trash the garage before we leave.It's probably a good idea to make them less mobile. Maybe they'll even have something we can steal for a getaway.
>>35765779Killing a bunch of combat idols in one blow would solve quite a few problems at once you know. I'm not sure we have the luxury of soft pedaling this.
>>35765757Best to wait until it approaches it's landing pad and slows down, then start raining lead on it. Easier to hit a slow moving target.
>>35765806Which will have a gps.Which we could fry actually.Better to use them to make an escape, then tip them over a bridge.

Get back down to the first floor!"The rest of the girls hustle down the stairs. "Producer." Morgan speaks up. "I've repositioned. The enemy VTOL has already touched down and unloaded. There are enemy combat idols in the building now.""Thanks, Morgan." You nod. "Rochelle, you hear that?""Yeah. We're just about at the garage, though."

>>35765929If it is a tank, Melissa has to be the loader, Rochelle's the TC, Julie's the Driver, and Sparky's the Gunner.
>>35765934And what you find on the other side is nothing short of beautiful. It was a Viper IFV, brand spanking new and so clean it looked as if had just rolled out of the factory. You had the sneaking suspicion that it was a freshly acquired asset.Yeah, you remembered riding around in these things. They were decently well armored, and they packed a lot of firepower, with a 30mm autocannon and .50cal automated turret that could cause some serious damage."Oh. My. God." Rochelle's jaw drops.

The Viper lurches forward, punching through garage door and crumpling it like paper."Sparky, can you do the honors?""Gladly!" Sparky grins as she mans the controls for the turret. The Viper's main gun spins around, and Sparky pulls the trigger, cackling as 30mm shells tear through the garage's walls, demolishing tools, fuel tanks, the remaining vehicles. Another loud WHUMP gives you an indication that the explosives planted in the armory have gone off as well."Shelling complete!"

>>35766284Where is are VTOL at? Like really? We armed it for this kind of shit.

>>35766306Probably. Any IFV worth its salt carries both APFSDS and HEI. HEI is what you want, High Explosive Incendiary.
>>35766330Fires from an open bolt, usually dual feed so you can decide which round you want to shoot just by flipping a switch. We have more than enough ammunition of both sorts. Hundreds of rounds.

>Merc will never address any of this ever
>>35766985>12000>We sank 12 grand into a gunship we will never get to use.
>>35767038And complaining at Merc does nothing either so yay~ Fucking wonderful.
I do apologize. This quest requires me to keep track of a lot of things and sometimes some stuff slips through the cracks, especially since I do very little prewriting.The Hornet is still around. Just because it wasn't around for one battle doesn't mean you lost it forever, and it's actually gotten shit done or given you capabilities you wouldn't otherwise have had.
>>35766907We geared it up just for this very mission last fucking thread and even with us asking about it in this very thread, you forgot about it? Was an enemy vtol strafing our girls not enough of an emergency? What the fuck merc, good job hamstrining us
>>35767102Maybe you should... I don't know. UPDATE YOUR FUCKING NOTES AT THE END OF EVERY THREAD. That might help. So would UPDATING THOSE PASTEBINS.
>>35767102You do realize people kept asking about throughout the thread and you blatantly ignored it. That's what's got me upset the most right now.
>>35767052I am complaining because the money spent on the Hornet could have been used to outfit half of our idols with bleeding edge weaponry and armor. Had Merc at least let on that opportunities to use the Hornet offensively would be few and far between, or that he would generally focus on the idols combat on foot, I would have been more inclined to go for a higher capacity transport aircraft. I'm totally fine with him downplaying vehicle combat in favor of ground fighting, I just wish he would spell these things out. If we're hardly ever going to get a chance to use this tank, I would have been more inclined to bank that nat20 when opened the garage, for example. It's just the ambiguity of it all is a tad frustrating when it means the difference of how we spend our cash outfitting our idols.
Drawfag once more. If we're bringing up stuff like this I was wondering where it was stated that it was only a maximum cap of 3 Star Power at once. Was it at the start of the quest? Not that I mind and not that I regret drawing any of what I drew, but I do feel a bit saddened at the loss of potential star power as while the overall main goal is to just have fun and contribute to this quest, I also did it for the helping everyone with Star Power as well.Nevertheless, it was still a good thread and like all the others anon said it would be really appreciated if you did update the pastebins!
>>35767102You might want to slow down on the massive questing then as such details can be important in things like this.
Guys, drop it. Merc made a mistake and he realizes it. No need to keep dwelling on it.
>>35767143No, I agree with you. But it's fucking clear Merc isn't going to change anytime soon in regards to explaining anything. He's been like this since VMQ. I really don't know why I expect him to get better at it.
>>35767157He makes the same mistakes over and over again. Forgetting weapons, upgrades, etc It has gotten fucking old at this point and has hamstring us in this very thread.
>>35767174And he realized it and, what's more, admitted it. Continuing to rag on about it is counterproductive.
>>35767191When he shows the change I'll shut up about it. But I'm not giving this much hope or any really.
>>35767149It's something of an unofficial rule to soft cap star power gain at 3, since art for star power is something that can be very easily abused.And again, I have 7 different text files dedicated to just this quest, so don't think that I don't keep careful notes or track progress. However, one of my flaws it that I can be very absentminded when it comes to actually remembering to apply said changes to the pastebins themselves.
>>35767196And that right there is counterproductive. Just shut up and wait. Continued bitching accomplishes nothing.
>>35767143 Well said anon, I'm half tempted to sell the hornet because of this and how little use we get from it, but then merc would forget we sold itThe thing is a massive fucking rippoff, 12 grand for it and nothing to show for it...
>>35767214I really, REALLY don't get this line of thinking. So because he forgets to include the Hornet in one battle, people already write it off as if it never existed? The fucking thing has been providing aerial insertion and extraction for the past few missions, which everybody seems to be conveniently forgetting.
>>35767201Ah alright, definitely understandable and I don't want to game the quest and churn out a billion lazy drawn doodles or anything to get infinite Star Power, so thanks for the confirmation on that.
>>35767247I'm fairly certain there is at least one person trying to start shit in several quests right now.
>>35767271Yeah, I'm under the impression that all this Hornet business is basically being stirred up by one troll or disgruntled anon. Merc's players are usually better than this.
>>35767201How is it abuse? Why is that a bad thing, do you not want art? You've never actually said anything about a limit and even the drawfag didn't know, kind of shitty that he's been making all that awesome art under false pretenses
>>35767318If you think the drawfag has been drawing to farm star power and not because he just enjoys drawing, then that's pretty goddamn disrespectful.
>>35767318You fucking kidding me. Merc has s number of times. Check the archives. Bloody hell.
>>35767286Okay something is causing anons all over this board to go mad with rage, I'll give you that much. But this particular case is over a specific issue. The fact that we are simply not getting our money's worth out of this gunship. The Hornet is far and away the most expensive piece of equipment we've purchased, and we scarcely get an opportunity to use it. It has on the overall, been a massive money sink where when we could have bought super powered weapons for our idols we could have actually used. We spent a good chunk of the last thread getting it prepped, and most of this thread clamoring to use it, and Merc straight up forgot that it existed.
>>35767318Please get a trip so you can be filtered
>>35767355>and most of this thread clamoring to use itThat right there is what kills me about all this.
>>35767355>>35767380What's done is done. Merc already admitted he fucked up, so there's not much point repeatedly bitching about it now. It's not like he intentionally deprived you of the Hornet with the sole intention of fucking you over.
>>35767380I just wanna lay down a heavy rain of 50.cal AP rounds, 20mm grenades, and rockets on suckers with our crazy awesome VTOL gunship. Was that too much to ask?
