Just today, you were informed that Artemis had just fulfilled its contract obligations to Estovakia. With the rebels in the northern territories suppressed, their source of income cut, and their airbase destroyed, any organized resistance against the new government had essentially crumbled. At this point, all that remained was for Artemis to be paid and then pack up and leave.It was the night before the pullout, and of course, it was the perfect time to party. You were sitting at the bar, warily eying all of the beers Lara kept chugging down, wondering if she had an upper limit for that sort of thing. Lilian and Amy were a bit more reserved, but you could tell they were in the festive mood and drinking more than they normally would, as well.>Someone's gotta be the sober one in this sorry lot. Refrain from drinking.>Ah fuck it. Might as well join in.>Other
>>36172715>Someone's gotta be the sober one in this sorry lot. Refrain from drinking.
>>36172715>>Someone's gotta be the sober one in this sorry lot. Refrain from drinking.Not to mention retelling the drunken shenanigans to everyone after they sober up.
>>36172715>>Someone's gotta be the sober one in this sorry lot. Refrain from drinking.
>>36172715>>Someone's gotta be the sober one in this sorry lot. Refrain from drinking.We can remember all the embarassing things they said.
>>36172715>Someone's gotta be the sober one in this sorry lot. Refrain from drinking.Time to hopefully not die horribly!
>>36172715>Someone's gotta be the sober one in this sorry lot. Refrain from drinking.Drinking impedes the mind's ability to remember drunken hijinks, so let's not drink
>>36172715>Someone's gotta be the sober one in this sorry lot. Refrain from drinking.The night is YOUNG, my friend! Can't waste it getting slobbed so soon, yaknow.
>>36172715>Ah fuck it. Might as well join in.but don't go overboard
>>36172767Wrong pic man.
>>36172715>>Ah fuck it. Might as well join in.Daily reminder that Merc drinking contests are best drinking contests
>>36172715>Ah fuck it. Might as well join in
okay, headcount, how many of you guys are /m/echaheads here?
>>36172715>Someone's gotta be the sober one in this sorry lot. Refrain from drinking.Haha time for planesmay as well while VC PC has been bugging on my end for this week
>>36172848O hi Mangafag, how goes the Wendy?
>>36172971I'm one.>>36172715>>Someone's gotta be the sober one in this sorry lot. Refrain from drinking.
>>36172996>VC PC>BuggingHuh? What's with VC bugging up?
>>36173012Zeke or Feddie?
>>36172715So far, you've refrained from drinking, mostly because you figure the group had to have at least one level headed member to keep the others from doing something stupid. Plus you never understood the whole "getting drunk till you literally pass out" culture too well. "Hey, come on!" Lara laughs as she hooks an arm around you while holding a big pitcher of beer in the other. "Can't let the lady of the night sit in the corner being all grumpy!""What? What makes me so important?" You raise an eyebrow?""You don't know?" Lara gasps. "The intel guys interrogating the rebel prisoners leaked it out a little earlier. The Stovie rebels are calling you the White Wind!">...White Wind?>They must be confusing me for someone else.>Oh, that's nice.>Other
>>36173016For whatever reason on my end the movement input decides to register for like 3 seconds, and then decide for a few frames to not want to move. REALLY shitty when it comes to dodging bullet fireThat being said I'm hearing and seeing people talk about bugs that only seem to be on a few people's ends, pic related
>>36173041Feddie. Zeon's soldier zeal is nice but generally massivelly offset by the monsters in the top positions.>>36173066>>...White Wind?
>>36173066>...White Wind?>They must be confusing me for someone else.
>>36173066>Oh, that's nice.>Other>How very imaginative.>Delivered in signature Belkan Deadpan-ness.
>>36173066>Oh, that's nice.
>>36173066>>...White Wind?Better find the context of this or how they came up with the name.
>>36173066>...White Wind?Isn't our plane blue?
>>36173066>>Oh, that's nice.
>>36173087Oops forgot to mention. Vector Thrust. Was mentioned in the last SWQ89 thread.It's a cell shaded ace combat successor for PC
>>36173066>...White Wind?Huh? But the plane is blue-ish.
>>36173094Maybe the survivors saw our Valkyrie Emblem since it does use Karla as a visual reference.
>>36173076Welp, it seems Sega is also getting the Ubisoft syndrome with these port...>>36173079SCUM
>>36173094Maybe it's because we keep bringing the snow
>>36173066>>...White Wind?>>36172998At very worst it'll up on Ghost's quest.
>>36173066>Oh, that's nice.That's cute.
>>36173066>>36173089seconding dead pan.
>>36173157Sweet. We shall wait warmly while you do your best and prepare.I do hope Shitscribbler is also doing well.
>>36173066"Must be confusing me for someone else." You grunt. "Last I checked, my plane is blue.""Well, technically, yes, but your wings are white due the feather pattern." Lilian points. "And generally, the wings of an aircraft are the most visible.""Nah, she just doesn't know the Stovies' brand of naming conventions!" Lara laughs as she downs easily a quarter of her pitcher, spilling a bit of it on your jacket. Ew."So, then, what significance does the White Wind carry?" You ask. Considering Lara lived right across the border from Estovakia, she was the most knowledgeable of your group. "Well, in the olden times, the Stovies didn't have neat things like gas heaters and modern insulation, and they live pretty far north, as you see, so every time winter came around, they'd hole up in their houses for a few months and pray that they wouldn't freeze to death in the meantime. Estovakian winters are always proceeded by huge wind storms from the north, so the Stovies saw the 'White Wind' as an ill omen, since whenever the wind came, winter came shortly after, and it always brought DEATH!""Are you sure that's real or are you just making it up?" You raise an eyebrow."I... uh... don't actually remember." Lara blinks, shrugs, and downs the rest of the pitcher. "But it still sounds cool, right?"Ugh.>I have to admit, it does have a certain ring to it...>I don't like it at all.>I'm not really interested in such things.>Other
>>36173303>I don't like it at all.Needs more snow and valkyries
>>36173303>I'm not really interested in such things.Belkan. Deadpan.
>>36173303>>I'm not really interested in such things.
>>36173303>I'm not really interested in such things.
>>36173303>>I have to admit, it does have a certain ring to it...
>>36173303>Mutter something about clay
>>36173303>>OtherI want a better nickname... Maybe something appropriately dour and Belkan (deadpan)
>>36173303>I have to admit, it does have a certain ring to it...
>>36173303>>I have to admit, it does have a certain ring to it...Don't be dull
>>36173347Well until they find out we're Belkan, I don't think that'll happen anytime soon.
>>36173340Okay, seconding this, just because.
>>36173303>I'm not really interested in such things.but>I have to admit, it does have a certain ring to it...
>>36173303>>I'm not really interested in such things.Also >>36173340 GIVE CLAY BACK!
Any chance we get to meet someone plot-important tonight?
>>36173303>>I have to admit, it does have a certain ring to it...if we weren't interested in such things ,we wouldn't have painted our plane like we did
>>36173519Or we just like our plane painted and don't give a fuck what other people think?
>>36173303"I'm not really interested in such things." You grumble. You're just here to fly and get paid. Picking up notoriety like that just makes you a bigger target. Sure, pilots like the Demon Lord and Mobius One were living legends, but you're sure having enemy aces constantly going after you and your title would get EXTREMELY tiresome at some point."Hey, what's with that attitude?" Lara frowns. "You know a lot of pilots would give up their left arm to get some recognition from the enemy!""Meh. Karla just doesn't appreciate the finer things of being a pilot." Amy rolls her eyes.>Are you implying something?>I'm more of a pilot than you.>I'll pretend I didn't hear that.>Just go back to getting drunk, Amy.>Other
>>36173303>I have to admit, it does have a certain ring to it...>>36173557That doesn't make sense anon...
>>36173587>>Just go back to getting drunk, Amy.
>>36173587>Just go back to getting drunk, Amy.
>>36173587>>I'm more of a pilot than you.I'll ring your bells, bitch!
>>36173587>>Are you implying something?
>>36173587>OtherSays the ground-pounder
>>36173587>I'll pretend I didn't hear that.
>>36173587>Just go back to getting drunk, Amy.I take that as a lighthearted jab and nothing else.
>>36173587>>Just go back to getting drunk, Amy.Bar fight?
>>36173587>Just go back to getting drunk, Amy.
>>36173587>Are you implying something?
>>36173633OW THIS. THIS THIS THIS!
>>36173633OUCH... but a little too catty for our Karla?
>>36173700Yeah, I don't like it. Is it that time of the month?
>>36173587I consider her words, a mercenary without a reputation gets paid shittily. Imagine how much Galm would get paid, winning the Belkan War single handedly
>> more of a pilot than you
>>36173700What's kind of Belkan can't make with the snark?
How do we go about converting our Artemis Funbucks into real cash?
>>36173587>>Just go back to getting drunk, Amy.all of these responses just sound like we're being a cunt
>>36173789Well I suppose we can attribute Karla's prickliness by the phone call she had with her uncle.
>>36173789None of this really sounds like snark, just sounds like she's PMS'ing or something.
>>36173796nah, we need to convert our Artemis funbucks into a SAAB 37 Viggen
>>36173812How, exactly, does it come of as bitching, especially when Amy fired the first shots?
>>36173812>>36173798Yeah, all options just come off as being bitchy for no reason, kind of out of character for Karla.
>>36173587You bite back the urge to snipe back at Amy. The girl was already well past buzzed judging from the way her face was colored and how she swayed to and fro in regular intervals. You'll chalk it up to the alcohol talking, so you opt to take the high road."Just go back to getting drunk, Amy." You sigh. "H-hey. Maybe I WILL!" Amy retorts weakly as she finishes off her drink, with Lilian chuckling at her alcohol-induced childishness."Karlaaaaaaaaaaaa." Lara tightens her grip on you, pressing her her cheek against yours. Her cheek felt like a burning iron touching against yours, testament to the amount of alcohol running through her system. "C'mon! Just sitting not drinking anything is just pure party pooper behavior!""I'm not interested." You frown, trying to avert your eyes away from Lara."Come awwuuuuuuuuuuun. Just one!" Lara whines, holding a filled beer glass right in front of your face. "For your bestest wingmate?">My answer is still no.>Fine. One. Just. One.>Other
>>36173853>>Fine. One. Just. One.
>>36173853>My answer is still no.
>>36173853>OtherHey, isn't that Wolf over there?
>>36173853>Fine. One. Just. One.
>>36173853>>My answer is still no.One leads two and three, and just no.
>>36173853>>Fine. One. Just. One.Can't say no to your wingmate like that.
>>36173853>OtherSURPRISE KISSUTHAT OUGHTA SHUT HER UP
>>36173853>>My answer is still no.Designated driver.
>>36173853>>OtherTake out silver flask from pocket... full of maple syrup flavored whiskey (Karla's secret stash)Just to screw with them.
>>36173853>>Fine. One. Just. One.>Just one kiss!
>>36173853>>My answer is still no.
>>36173853>>Fine. One. Just. One.>>Other"Only for a kiss."
>>36173907Oh goddammit. No.
>>36173907So we're going for yuri on this or is this too early to call?
>>36173907... Is karla even gay? Why not just go full mercenary and say that you need to charge Lara $100 dollars or sosmething
>>36173940>>36173939Put it up to some of us trying to find a surefire way to shut Lara up, fast.
>>36173907No, please no. pls no
>>36173940Either the /u/boats have arrived in force, or they're just trying to fuck with Lara
>>36173853>Fine. One. Just. One.Lets make some anti-/u/fags mad.
>>36173961Right because it isn't actually going to turn into some bullshit wiafu crap as it always, always does.Damn it /tg/.
>>36173961So you're shutting her up despite taking the drink?
No point in even voting. The samefags will handle this one.
>>36173999No, I mean, before she can pass the glass, Karla gives her a quick peck/sloppy one then runs away while Lara is distracted.Or at least that's how I picture it.>>36173983Being /tg/ is suffering.
>>36173907Christ no. Why do you people think of these things.
>>36174020>yurifags are ruining my pure and blue world T_T
>>36174032Fuck off. That is stupid.
>>36174049No, thats Coordinators
>>36174032Again how does that work into shutting her up for good? This reminds me of magical girl hunter
>>36174049They ruin every goddamn quest.
>>36174049Oh hell, who let a Blue Cosmos zealot in here?
>>36173972Aren't they the same thing?
>>36174020Actually there has been only a handful of samefags. Just look at the unique posters.
>>36173853"Fine. One. Just. One." You acquiesce and grab the beer glass, putting it up against your lips...>roll 1d20

Don't we use a Roll Under system in this quest? I.E. Low rolls are good?
>>36174167Not until we meet this universes version of him and husbando the shit out of him
I guess we had a good reason for avoiding drinking.
>>36174184For combat only, that is.I don't think this qualifies.
>>36174184Only in the skies
Quick question for you guys here:I don't know what Ace Combat really is. But I followed GBFQ and enjoyed it despite only a cursory knowledge of Gundam and Gundam accessories. Will I miss a lot of the meat of this quest if I don't know much about Ace Combat setting/fighters, or can I pretty much dive in?
>>36174205>>36174208Oh well. Time to get smashed... please don't tell me we're getting smashed on one beer. That would just be embarrassing.Can we have it spiked with something a lot stronger at least?
>>36174238Dive in. Arcade style flight shooter. I know nothing of planes other than I'm an American so everything my nation has ever produced is fantastic.
>>36174238Tis better if you read up a bit. Strangereal backstories are very immersive, if you ask me.
>>36174238I'm sure you can join in fine, but you'll definitely get more enjoyment out of this if you play AC 4-5-0. Break out the ps2 or emulator.
>>36174238It's fine, you don't need in-depth knowledge of Strangereal, we'll get the info we need from plot dumps, and the planes will be explained by the sperglords and descriptions>>36174242Dude, where'd you get that time machine?
>>36174238Ace Combat is an extremely arcadey flight game. I'm linking a playthrough to you, this guy only uses the canon planes.https://www.youtube.com/playlist?list=PLE22D9E5FD8D505C6
>>36174238At most you'll miss some geopolitical references and mentions of game characters.I know next to nothing about AC (or, for that matter, planes) and I'm still enjoying this quest a lot.
>>36174294He's probably John Titor.
>>36174238Things to know:1. The setting is known as strangereal. All the planes that are developed in reality are developed by their sorta-counterparts in Strangereal. It's not straight 1:1.2. The people in Strangereal fucking love their wars. They are short but there are A LOT of them.3. Ace pilots in real life are amazing and usually amass hundreds of kills, when five is all you need for ace status. ACE pilots in Strangereal are even more absurdly good and a few have single handedly turned the tides of wars.4. Belka a shit
>>36174321Dude, no hatin now.
>>36174321>4. This is the future you chose
>>36174321Get a load of this Usti
>>36174321>The people in Strangereal fucking love their wars. They are short but there are A LOT of them.Basically Somalia or the Balkans?
>>36174085And the next thing you know, you wake up in the cockpit of your Phantom with a splitting headache. You look around, wondering just how the hell you got in here. And finally, as your brain finally begins to wake up as well, you realize that you can't remember how the hell you got here.And that's when the headache hits.It obviously did not take an ace pilot to realize that you most likely got carried away with the drinking and went overboard. Goddamn, you figured you would've learned from last time, but apparently not. Wincing from the pain, you try to fight off the headache to clear your mind. You check your surroundings quickly. Of course, you were in your Phantom, meaning you were in your squadron's hangar rather than your barracks. You also just notice that there's a blanket drawn over you. Apparently, you either brought it with you or somebody placed it on you.Summoning your strength, you crack open your cockpit canopy and look around. You can see Amy and Lilian also tucked away in their respective planes, similarly passed out. However, Lara's F-15 was empty. You look down and see her curled up at the foot of your Phantom's boarding ladder, fast asleep as well.The hangar doors were closed, but judging from the windows, it was still dark out. Probably the very early morning hours.Now you were starting to feel a bit anxious. Just what the hell happened last night?>Whatever. Just stay put and sleep off this damn headache.>Try to wake up Lara and ask her what happened.>Go take a stroll outside. Maybe the cold air will help you recover.>Other
>>36174321Considering Galm One racked up 150+ Ace kills I'd say 3 is an understatement.
>>36174367>>Go take a stroll outside. Maybe the cold air will help you recover.Remember what happened when we tried to wake up Sam in VMQ1?
>>36174367>Try to wake up Lara and ask her what happened.MY PURE AND BLUE WORLD, FOREVER SHATTERED
>>36174367>>Try to wake up Lara and ask her what happened.
>>36174367>Go take a stroll outside. Maybe the cold air will help you recover.>>36174363Sort of like Classical Greece, every now and then two or more nations get in a toss-up, but they almost never last more than a year
>>36174367>>Whatever. Just stay put and sleep off this damn headache.
>>36174367>>Go take a stroll outside. Maybe the cold air will help you recover.
>>36174367>Try to wake up Lara and ask her what happened.>Go take a stroll outside. Maybe the cold air will help you recover.Do these together. Punishment for Lara. Screw her hangover.
>>36174367>>OtherAre we decent?We are not wearing the bunny suit or that nurse outfit, yes?Oh god, where are our clothes.
>>36174367>Try to wake up Lara and ask her what happened.Fuck was in that beer.
>>36174448Regret and sorrow. Possibly also lesbians.
>>36174367>Whatever. Just stay put and sleep off this damn headache.
>>36174388GO HOME AZRAEL, YOU'RE DRUNK
>>36174367>>Go take a stroll outside. Maybe the cold air will help you recover.>>Check clothing first though.
I bet Karla got drunk and started hitting on Wolf."Hey there, handsome. I'm a pilot.""I know...so am I..."
>>36174459>spoilersI once drank a beer spiked with that. Tasted like flowers. No further effect.
>>36174367>Try to wake up Lara and ask her what happened.
I have a feeling the four of them were sloppily dragging themselves to the hangars planning to go on an unauthorized hop and were singing,>99 BOTTLES OF VODKA ON THE WALL, 99 BOTTLES OF VODKA... SHOOPIDIDOOPIDIDOOP
>>36174573But we're not Stovies/Yukes
>>36174588>99 BOTTLES OF BEER ON THE WALL, 99 BOTTLES OF BEER... SHOOPIDIDOOPIDIDOOP
I think I know what happened, Lara gave us the blanket to keep us warm when we passed out. That's why she's not in her F-15. Also where is Larry?
>>36174617Tis the hangar, not the Artemis Warehouse bruh.
>>36174367You decide that getting some fresh air would do you some good. You slowly and carefully get out of your cockpit and make your way down the ladder, being especially careful not to step on Lara. You pause and looking at your wingmate, sleeping peacefully on the floor. Not willing to just leave her on the ground like that, you glance around to see if anybody was looking, and then cover Lara up with your blanket. Judging from what you saw, Lara was probably the one that put it on you in the first place. Leaving your wingmates to sleep it off, you stretch your arms and legs and walk out of the hangar and are immediately hit with a wall of cold air. It sends shivers throughout your entire body, but it also felt rather cleansing in a way. It jumpstarts your nervous system and you already feel much more clearheaded and alert.Looking around, you can see the base was now dark and quiet, as per usual in the graveyard hours. Of course, the runway lights and the tower were still lit for night patrols and in case of emergency landings, but otherwise, the rest of the base was more or less dark.What wasn't dark, however, were the Military Police jeeps prowling the base, Pretty obvious with those headlights and police lights blazing through the darkness. >Maybe you should ask them what's going on.>Maybe you should go back inside...>Ignore them and keep walking around.>Other
>>36174701>>Maybe you should ask them what's going on.
>>36174701>>Maybe you should ask them what's going on.Does Karla carry a sidearm?
>>36174701>>Maybe you should go back inside...>MPsNOPE.They're probably looking for us.
>>36174701>Maybe you should ask them what's going on.Snake? SNAKE?! SNAKE!!!
>>36174701>>Ignore them and keep walking around.
>>36174701>>Maybe you should go back inside...
>>36174701>>Maybe you should go back inside...>MPs out and aboutHahaha. No thanks.
>>36174701>Maybe you should go back inside...You NEVER seek out MPs
>>36174701>>Maybe you should go back inside...Someone needs to watch over our passed-out wingmates.
>>36174701>Maybe you should go back inside...Yeaahhh... Nope.
>>36174701>Maybe you should go back inside...
>>36174701Hold yer horses..... WHAT THE HELL DID BRAVO SQUADRON DO LAST NIGHT
>>36174419If Karla is naked, she probably has Godiva hair covering her naughty bits.
>>36174419Pretty sure we're in our fatigues, we wouldn't be going out otherwise
Drone Witches of Galilee Quest when, Merc?
>>36174701Yeah...whenever the MPs were out, that was NEVER a good sign. That either meant there were enemy infiltrators inside the base, or the base personnel had too rowdy a night and now they were out enforcing curfew.You were going to go with the latter explanation. Not wishing to be spotted, you quietly slip back into the hangar. That left you with a hangar with three sleeping wingmates. Not much to do, really. >Go back to sleep.>Try to wake one of the girls to see if they remember anything.>Search for clues without having to wake them.>Other
>>36174924>>Othersnuggle with our wingmate.Shes got our blanket.
>>36174924>Search for clues without having to wake them.More fun this way.

>>36174924Hm, while going back to sleep was a bit tempting, especially considering how comfortable your wingmates seemed to be, the mystery of what happened after you took that drink kept nagging at you. You had to find out in order to preserve your sanity!However, you really didn't want to disturb your squadmates, so you figured you had to do it discreetly.>roll 1d20

>>36175266Glancing down at Lara, you could see a cell phone clutched in her hand. It was almost too easy. You quietly snatch the phone of her hands. Lara mumbles and shifts a bit, but is not roused from her slumber. You turn on the screen and it take you straight to the menu, much to your surprise. Then again, Lara did seem to be the extremely trusting type, so maybe the fact she didn't password protect her phone wasn't so surprising at all.Oh boy, you were really starting to get some really weird temptations now...>Searching through ALL THE FILES!>Just search for stuff pertaining to this night.>Other

>>36175617speaking of age, how old is Karla, I got the impression she wasn't young as she spent time in the war and then as a commercial pilot, that kind of career takes a fair amount of time for training

>>36175476You fight the urge to peek. You liked to think you were the honorable sort and you were already pushing your moral boundaries rifling through Lara's personal property like this. Best to just get what you were looking for. You immediately go to her photo album, where you see a lot of drunken selfies of herself as well as with you and the rest of the squadron, and a few pilots and personnel. You also noted you were quite visibly drunk. The photos grew progressively raunchy until it culminated into something that makes your heart stop and your eyebrows twitch. You come across a picture of you and Lara sloppily kissing in the middle of an alcohol induced stupor. Thankfully, from the background, nobody seemed to have noticed this, but here the image was, forever planted in the depths of Lara's phone.>Delete the photo. NOBODY MUST EVER KNOW.>Leave it.

>>36175852You thumb hovers over the DELETE button for what seems like a very long time. However, you decide that deleting the photo was the best thing for the both of you in the long run. You had a feeling it would bring nothing but trouble down the road.And with one button press, that one picture was gone forever.Sighing deeply, you continue on through the photo queue, and you see a video at the end. You play it, making sure the turn down the volume first. It just showing you taking repeated shots while the person holding the phone, presumably Lara was doing the same. The fact that the camera's nausea inducing shaking was a good indicator of how far gone she was. Suddenly, things are interrupted when Wolf drops down on the table in front of you, sending glasses and perfectly good whiskey flying everywhere."Hey ladies." He winks at the both of you when a big, burly Estovakian man, the size of bear, picks him up by the collar. The camera shakes a bit more, and then you see the camera shift. Lara's arm reaches out to grab a glass bottle, and bops it on the Estovakian's head.And then all hell breaks loose. You lose track of what's happening until you see Lara, yourself, and Lilian and Amy stumble out of the bar, laughing and giggling like mad while MP sirens are heard in the distance. And then the video ends.Huh, at least you were glad you weren't the cause of the fight.And you let out a big, loud yawn. Man, you were way more tired than you thought. Maybe you really should get some rest...But now you were in a bit of an awkward predicament. You had given your blanket to Lara and you weren't even or callous enough to take it back. Well, you could just return to the cockpit of your Phantom. It should still be relatively warm.Or...Or...Ugh, you didn't even know why you were contemplating this.>Return to your cockpit and get some sleep.>Share the blanket with Lara. Just this once.>Other

>>36176283>WELP, TIED VOTEHowever, your predicament answers itself when Lara wakes up on her own. Sitting up, she stretches and yawns. Well, more like roars as she releases all of the pent up energy inside of her. She then rubs her eyes groggily and instantly perks up when she sees you, as if the concept of a hangover was completely unknown to her."Oh, hey Karla, what's up?" "Um, nothing." You say, quickly hiding Lara's phone behind your back. "Just taking a bit of a walk around.""Ah, okay." Lara nods. "Ummmm... you don't happen to remember what happened? My memory for the past few hours is kinda fuzzy.""Nope, I don't remember a thing, either." You shake your head quickly. "Hmmm, now where's my phone? That's exactly why I always take photos with it..." Lara frowns as she checks her pockets. While she's distracted, you gently set it down on top of a cargo crate."Um, looks like you left it there." You point to the phone."Oh! Thanks!" Lara gets up and snatches the phone. She opens it up and immediately cracks a goofy smile. "Eheheh."As Lara browses through her phone, you notice the sky was starting to brighten outside. Looks like the sun was finally beginning to rise.>Ask Lara if she remembers anything particularly... interesting last night.>Distract Lara by grabbing some coffee or breakfast or something for the others.>Other

>>36176552"Hey, Lara, how about we grab some breakfast?" You ask."Ah, sure! I'm freaking starving!" Lara nods.Thankfully, now that it was morning any active curfews were rescinded, and the MPs appear to have dispersed. Neither you nor Lara run into trouble when you sign out a jeep for a food run. Really, you and Lara just steal a couple pots of coffee and as much sausage, bacon, eggs, and pancakes you can physically carry before driving back to the hangar. Thankfully, Amy and Lilian are awake by the time you return, though like you, they were obviously hungover."Aaaggggghhh, my head." Amy grunts. "Every time!""It's to be expected." Lilian sighs, trying to put up a relaxed face but not quite succeeding."Well it's a good thing we brought breakfast, then!" Lara laughs.As you all sit in the hangar among your planes, wolfing down much needed food and coffee, the subject of conversation starts to move to what you all were going to do with your leave time. Apparently, Artemis pilots were granted leave in between contracts, so you all would have a few days to yourselves. Of course, it seemed your wingmates were all going to be returning to their respective homes. Lara to Emmeria, Amy to Ustio, and Lilian to Osea. That sort of left you to wonder what you would do. >You've got your own family to meet.>Maybe tag along with one of your wingmates?>Other
>>36176778>Maybe tag along with one of your wingmates?>AmyWe haven't interacted with her in a while

>>36176778>>You've got your own family to meet.Gotta meet Uncle Spooky.
>>36176792That's because she's from Ustio, and thus hates Belkans for trying to occupy her country
>>36176778>>You've got your own family to meet.Got to go find our spook of an Uncle.
>>36176778>You've got your own family to meet.We haven't forgotten our uncle, have we?
>>36176778>You've got your own family to meet.
>>36176800...Do they have a mage's mind in them?
>>36176778>You've got your own family to meet.Our Uncle, the intel spook. I wonder if he was one of the spooks that helped Razgriz end the Grey Men.
>>36176843I'm not sure what they have inside of them but they sure are damn hysterical
>>36176855>the Grey Men.Didn't know the AC series had extraterrestrials.
>>36176871Ah, an un-initiated one, I take it?The Grey Men are a shady group of Belkans who played both Osea and Yuktobania after the Belkan War. They aim to revive the Belkan Federation by destroying two of the world's greatest powers.
How late do these usually run?
>>36176871No, it's just a term for some Belkan farts who engineered a war between not!NATO and not!Warsaw Pact as revenge for their part in taking down not!Germany
>>36176778"So, what are you planning to do?" Lara manages to utter between mouthfuls of bacon and pancakes."Ah, well, I guess it's an opportunity to see my family again." You sigh. "Well, I haven't seen my mother in a real long time. But then, I also have stuff to talk about with my Uncle, too.""Hm, can't you just meet both at once?" Lilian asks."Eh...." You frown. "My mother and my uncle don't really get along too well. It's complicated."Well, it was really simple, actually. Uncle still remained loyal to Belka, which was already a minus in Mom's eyes. However, you get the feeling that she believes Uncle was responsible for Dad's death. You just were always too afraid to ask either of them.>I'm just going to meet my Mom.>I'm just going to meet my Uncle.>Maybe I should see both at once...>Other

>>36176924>I'm just going to meet my Uncle.He's got some very important shit to tell us. Mom can wait, and meeting them both is an accident waiting to happen.
>>36177001Doctor Who stop. Please.
>>36176924>>Maybe I should see both at once...>>OtherIf we're talking about Dad.....This is actually a good reason to have two parties in the same room
>>36177054It's really not. We have no clue if dad is still alive or not, and this would mean we need to tell mom we're a merc.
>>36176924"Nah, I'm just gonna meet my Uncle. I have some stuff to take care with him, anyways." You say. "Ah, well, I guess that's understandable." Lilian nods. "Aw, still would've liked you to come see me and the folks! Would've been fun!" Lara sighs."Eh, I don't think she'd like Ustio that much anyways." Amy shrugs.With breakfast done, you hear the intercom buzz."All Artemis units, prepare for departure in four hours. I repeat, all Artemis units, prepare for departure in four hours. Please remember to bring all important and mission critical assets with you, and it will be replaced at your own cost.""Ah, well, guess we'd better start getting ready." Lara sighs."Actually, maybe it would be a good time for you to see Quint." Lilian suggests to you. "Usually he'll discount surplus items right before a pullout.""He does?" You raise an eyebrow. "Quint doesn't seem like that kind of guy.""It's mostly because it's more cost effective to sell stuff here at a discount rather than paying to ship it back home." Amy explains. "It's not uncommon for us to sell our hand me down equipment to local forces.""Ah." You nod.>Just get ready to leave.>Pay a visit to Quint.>Other
>>36177072Not necessarily. If tensions are high among family, then its a good reason to play cards close to chest.I mean, come on.If you're asking questions about your father's squadron, then wives always know more than they let on - even if they don't talk about it woth good reason

>>36177124Hey merc, do any of the later-series fighters have room for more than one weapon system on their racks?
>>36177193Care to share the reference?>>36177186Well that could do.Either that, or he's recuperating after getting a shotgun arm, losing his left eye, and making coffee blends of the craziest kind.
>>36177202It will probably be possible, but not they'd have to be modified after-market to do so."Yeah, I'll talk to Quint for a bit." You say. "I'll be back in a few.""Take your time!" Lilian smiles. "We'll make sure Smokey gets your plane ready to fly!"With that, you make you way out of your own hangar and towards the one Quint set up shop in. As expected, the hangar is in a flurry of activity as crates are continually being loaded up and shipped out. Some of the crates were simply being moved elsewhere on the base, having been sold to the Estovakian government. Others, though, were being taken to the airstrip to be loaded on departing cargo planes."Ah! Karla! Nice to see you!" Quint says happily. "Come to browse?""A bit." You nod. "Was wondering if you had any discounts?""Well, when you captured that freighter convoy, you brought in a lot of fresh plane parts. Enough to even build a few entire planes out of, free of cost!" Quint says happily. "In return, I'll shave down the price of some of planes. Limited time offer!""Oh?" You raise an eyebrow."Yep. Also, if you feel you don't have enough cash for what you want, you could always sell your Phantom back to me." Quint says further. "In my estimation, the Phantom's resale value is probably around $5000.""Okay, I'll keep that in mind." You nod.SHOP LIST: http://pastebin.com/biWAMEUC<<TEMPORARY SALE: ALL PLANE PRICES -$3000! ALL WEAPON PRICES -$1000!>><<CURRENT F-4 PHANTOM RESALE PRICE: $5000>>>You currently have $12,700>Do you make any purchases?
>>36177284>It will probably be possible, but not they'd have to be modified after-market to do so.I was more thinking that later-generation fighters tend to have higher power-weight ratios once AIR COMBAT starts being figured out, which means more weight for stuff - in a game where planes are famous for LOADSAMISSILES.>>36177284>>Do you make any purchases?Do we have anything to sell back?
>>36177284Let's buy: >F-16 Falcon 20000-3000= 17000
>>36177284>XLAATHEY'LL NEVER SEE THE SNOW COMING.
>>36177284>Sell F-4>Buy F-16We have just enough with the discount.
>>36177284>Saab 37 ViggenSell the F-4.
>>36177284Let's buy the sweet, sweet falcon.No more flying brick for us!
>>36177284Man I hope people think this deal through.I'm all up for a new plane, but I think what we need right now is an upgunning for the Double Ugly.
>>36177284>"Well, when you captured that freighter convoy, you brought in a lot of fresh plane parts. Enough to even build a few entire planes out of, free of cost!" Quint says happily. "In return, I'll shave down the price of some of planes. Limited time offer!""Hey, quint, I know what a plane's worth. that's a hell of a profit you're making of MY shooting, so why don't you treat me fair with it, yeah?"
Anyone else hate F-16s? Single engine a shit.
>>36177343I just think it's a bloody ugly plane and predictable as all hell in picking it.
>>36177334>Man I hope people think this deal through.>I'm all up for a new plane, but I think what we need right now is an upgunning for the Double Ugly.I'd agree. It seems such a shame to let the f-4 go so early. We JUST painted it.Hold out for a tomcat imho. Or a Flanker.What are the odds the armory will change between staging areas? I want that sweet sweet flanker edition our daddy had
>>36177215I think it is hitler anon
>>36177284>>Do you make any purchases?Sell Phantom, acquire Hornet
>>36177343I'm completely fine with an F/A-18, too. Same exact price.>>36177341Pretty sure we were explicitly told not to haggle with Quint, under any costs.
>>36177343LAAAWWWNNNNN DDDDAAARRRRTTTSSSS>>36177284>>Sell Phantom, buy Viggen.Can we get her repainted like our old bird?
F/A-18 or F-16 good with me.
>>36177284>ViggenGet it. GET IT.
>>36177364>What are the odds the armory will change between staging areas?Oh man, I hope that works too. We could have different price lists for different hops.>>36177366Oh, pretty slow me then. Thanks.
>>36177284Going with the F-18
>>36177284sell phantombuy F-16
>>36177284Hornet, all the way. From Ace Combat 4 to 6, we've seen the F-22, the F-15, F-14 and the F-16 as the featured planes, but not the F-18. Let's add it to the lineup, shall we?
>>36177284Sell F-4Buy F-16
>>36177371>Pretty sure we were explicitly told not to haggle with Quint, under any costs.There's a difference between haggling, and not getting ripped off."Hey lets get enough parts to build three planes and sell them for sixty k minus labor""lol lets give them like, a grand off.">>36177379Why the viggen?Fulcrum would be excellent.I'd kind of like to keep the F-4 for later, because then we can have one for air superiority and one for ground attack missions.Also this is platant plot-bait for those MYSTERIOUS ADVERSARIES to buy our plane back and have mysterious cutscenes over our paintjob.I'd say:Bum 300$ from our squadmates.Get the Viggen.Keep the F-4.Sell BOTH back next time we need an upgrade
>>36177284>ViggenWould leave us with, what 4000? So another hope we could easily get XLAA.
>>36177284Sell F-4, buy F-18.
>>36177409The viggen is currently 13,000. We almost have enough for it out of pocket.
>>36177401I like this.
>>36177415Well if we sell the F-4 that is. Which I figured we're doing.
>>36177413Keep in mind the f-18's version isn't listed.People will really regret asking for a F-18/AIf we're going for a f-18, we really want a Super Hornet, F-18/E or F
>>36177284Get the F-16, sell our F-4
>>36177401Best plan all around.Having an emergency backup plane we can use if we get shot out is a solid idea.
>>36177284Okay, so there's a lot of debate here, so let's get the first thing out of the way.Which plane will you purchase?>F-16>Viggen
>>36177427>lightweight agile>F-18 HornetThis is no super hornet definitely.
>>36177427Actually, you're totally right. I retract my F-18 vote, let's go for the Viggen.
>>36177443F-16Still want to keep the F-4, can we bum some cash from our squaddies?
>>36177458>Still want to keep the F-4, can we bum some cash from our squaddies?Its 300$"Hey you gals owe me for all the beer last night"DONE.
>>36177443>F-16Well, if you're going to make me choose between those two.F-18 would have been better.
>>36177443>>36177458here, changing to Viggen, still want to keep F-4.
>>36177484>F-18 would have been betterdebatable, like >>36177427 says the lack of a version could mean not getting a super hornet. and that's really the only hornet wroth a damn.
>>36177484Falcon and Hornet cost the same. There's no reason to believe that either have better performance. They're the same tier in priceIf we go for a f18 platform, look at custom-ordering a growler variant.Look at all those pylons! and it has jammers and electronic warfare support!
Saab 37 Viggen --> 17000 CreditsF-16 Fighting Falcon --> 20000 CreditsSpending time with your family in Oured --> PricelessThere are some things money can't buy. For everything else, there's ACQ.
>>36177510It's NOT a super hornet.
>>36177523>Spending time with your family in Oured --> PricelessWell, come on. This is a transaction that should take twenty minutes at most. There's a four hour limit, and we can plan to be there and back in a time budget of 3-cash.>>36177531Well alright! Viggen it is for middle tier.>>36177443Viggen !
>>36177512It's not direct-combat capable. It doesn't even have guns!
>>36177512I hope we at least get a named ally with a Growler, they're so cool.
>>36177538In Ace Combat, everything has guns.
>>36177546Welp forgot that one.Though I don't think I've seen EW fighters anywhere, either.
>>36177443Hm, I'm gonna Final Destination this since plane choice is pretty damn important.Reply with the link and vote number ONLY. Anything that does not follow these rules or posted after five minutes will not be counted.>1. F-16>2. Viggen
>>36177576Viggen. We need some weapon upgrades.
>>36177576I was just noticing our Skills list in the pastebin, actually. Will getting a new plane unlock a new perk, or something?Or is that story-driven stuff, like seeing our family?>>36177581Vote properly, anon, or it won't be counted.

>>36177599>>dat filenameThanks! i stole it from a shadowrun general which turned very Ace Combat the other day when people figured out just how hilariously armable those planes are

>>36177649>>36177650Got damnit, i thought i fixed that. Committing sudoku.
>>36177645No. No it isnt.
Why wouldn't > replies count? Unless Merc is using some automated method to tally this shit, that seems a little pedantic.
>>36177576Well, it looks like you're the proud owners of a brand new F-16!Now there's the question of what to do with the Phantom. I'm just gonna cut to the chase on this one and make it a Final Destination vote as well. Link and number only, five minutes.1. Sell2. Keep
>>36177674because if you can only reply in one way it prevents people from samefagging since you have a 5min cooldown before you can post the exact same thing
>>36177682>proudNot even remotely.
>>36177682I thought we had to sell the F4 to get enough for the F-16
>>36177682Not exactly proud...
>>36177682Wait. why?We can't purchase the F-16 without selling the F-4.Unless this vote is whether or not we go into debt?
>>36177682We kinda can't get the F-16 without selling the F-4 Merc.
>>36177682>proudPull the other one
>>36177701>I thought we had to sell the F4 to get enough for the F-16Apparently debt is a thing.It makes sense that we would ship out with the phantom onboard our transport - due to the short nature departure of this - , and he'll just hold it as collateral.Which i'm OK with.Keeping the Phantom for nostalgia's sake and being ABLE to sell it off if we need the 5k makes sense to me.
>>36177711>>36177711We could let Quint loanshark us.
>>36177722We don't even know what the repayment terms are and what kind of interest rates.So if we plan on selling it in the end, theres no reason to keep the plane.
>>36177729Fuck that>>36177731The only reason to hold onto it would be as a backup plane
>>36177740any vote after this post doesn't count.
>F-16 wonOh well.We're going to get an F-15E next, right guys? Right...?
>>36177755I for one support this.Even if it's anit-Belkan, in a way
>>36177731>theres no reason to keep the plane.>>36177401>plot-baitExcept for that.In case you haven't noticed, the end-of-mission summaries/debriefings by the enemy commander, always always curious about this mysterious, solo, lone f-4 phantom.Merc flat out TOLD us that the sale is BECAUSE they leave gear behind for the locals, because of the transport pain.Add all this together, and suddenly our daddie's gonna buy the valkyrie's old ride with unforseen consequences.thats why i don't wanna let our phantom go just right this now.This is also why we should have gotten the cheaper plane - its an upgrade that won't break the bank, and leave us with some cash in the meantime.Unless there's an end-of-campaign signing bonus.
>>36177766Can't believe Galm Team used the C variant instead of the others.
>>36177755F-15 of some sort for high end 4th gen.>>36177781You're fucking delusional
>>36177782Part of me thinks it's because of the time and setting. Even if their mercs, they'd have to make do with whatever's available.Another part thinks they prefer a dedicated fighter to a multirole.
We could just strip off the paint before selling the plane, couldn't we?
>>36177766We could always save up and get ourselves the most patriotic F-15 variant.
>>36177804>Hey Quint, can you have the F-4 painted over? I don't want anyone imitating me later.PROBLEM SOLVED
>>36177819I'm still hoping against hope that we get to fly a Prototype Eagle+
>>36177793>You're fucking delusionalI pay attention.>http://suptg.thisisnotatrueending.com/archive/35813989/#p35821677>Colonel Antonin frowned as he read the after action reports. The plan should have been flawless. Perfect. Wait for the usurpers and their mercenaries to leave a skeleton force at their base, and then bomb it into oblivion. His man on the inside there assured him they barely had a dozen combat ready craft. Yet, here he was, now eight bombers, an AWACS, and over a half dozen fighters short.>There were a lot of details to sift through, but there was one thing all the accounts could agree on.>The intervention of a singular F-4 Phantom...http://suptg.thisisnotatrueending.com/archive/35882392/#p35888539>Colonel Antonin was clearly not pleased.>"You mean to tell me, that almost an ENTIRE SQUADRON of Floggers was wiped out by a single plane?" He scowled, eying the three surviving pilots of the squadron he sent to escort one of his supply convoys.>"It.. it wasn't human!" One of the pilots stammer. "A Phantom straight out of the Demon Edges!">>36177087>"It's mostly because it's more cost effective to sell stuff here at a discount rather than paying to ship it back home." Amy explains. "It's not uncommon for us to sell our hand me down equipment to local forces."It adds up. There's a considerable interest in the voodoo phantom.>>36177804in four hours?No time for that shit.Also, its meta game knowledge abusing as hell.>>36177819... naah. Pic related.
>>36177844I'd rather end up with an SU-47.
>>36177846No, you are delusional that selling our Phantom would be a negative effect because of that. It is a huge jump with no grounding in reality.
>>36177682Well, you were actually a bit reluctant to sell off your F-4, but progress marches on. Even though you were beginning to feel sentimental about the Phantom, you knew that if you wanted to compete, you needed a more modern airframe, and your Phantom was already pushing its limits going up against the type of enemies you were facing now."All right, Quint. I'll sell the Phantom and buy the Falcon." You sigh.>Phantom SOLD. +$5000>Falcon BOUGHT. -$17,000>$700 remains."Excellent! You'll have your new Falcon by the time we return to base, then!" Quint smiles as he signs off on the paperwork. "You'll still keep possession of your Phantom up until it returns to base, in which it will be exchanged for the Falcon. Do you understand?""Yes, I do." You nod."Good! Nice doing business with you!" Well... you had a new plane, you thought to yourself as you exited the store. You were hoping that maybe you would have time to break it into before heading off for the next contract. But first things first, you make a short detour, taking out your cell phone as you dial Uncle's number."This is Mr. Weiss, speaking." You hear his business voice."Hey, Uncle." You say, nervously twirling your hair with your fingers. "So about what you said last time, I'll be in Oured for the next few days. How about we meet then...?">And that's it for tonight! Next thread will be on Tuesday. Don't forget to catch Cyberpunk Idols on Saturday and PJ Witches on Sunday!
>>36177851How about a Su-74?
>>36177851Lets not aim for the garbage slavshit experimental jet that wasn't a practical design, even by Russian standards.
>>36177860Thanks for the thread merc. So sad to see the Ugly go so soon though.
>>36177859Yeah, unless you have any sense for plot I was expecting some Red Baron shit where the enemy ace (the tiger striped flanker, perhaps) gets in our cockpit to try to get inside our head.Its a neat way to earn a nemesis. Especially if there's the delicious family twist, where the enemy ace gets obsessed with the similiarities between someone they miss but logically know it can't actually be...
>>36177846Different anon here, I see your point but I'd think that the locals would at least give the Phantom a repaint before putting it into service in their air forces. Also, the enemy commander and pilots have to be more specific about the Phantom. Like did it have any special markings, or paintjob to set it apart from the rest? I'm pretty sure the pilots at the Demon's Edge got at least a good look at our custom Phantom.
>>36177860Thanks for running, Merc!
>mfw I miss Endless Sky AGAINLiving in the UK truly is hell
>>36177860Good run, Merc
>>36177916>>36177920now if only as many people voted, as thanked the gm.Running a game is truly the worst job.thanks again merc!
>>36177860Took quick nap only to find out it's over.....Well thanks for the thread. it was a hell of a ride.
God damn, we cleaned out the wallet with that purchase. Hope it was worth it, we really need to invest in special weapons in the near future.
>>36178155The Falcon's asingle-seat, multirole fly-by-wire fighter with a helluva lot more maneuverability and tactical flexibility than our previous bird.They're also a damn sight sexier than the old flying brick.All that being said, I still hold out hope for a Rafale in the future.
>>361782604.5 a shit
>>36178260eurofighter or go home
