LAST TIME ON GEASS QUEST: http://suptg.thisisnotatrueending.com/archive/36040835/Thread times and updates posted here: https://twitter.com/CrosswireRules and Mechanics: http://pastebin.com/J8ehewqfYour name is Xinlu Kuu and you’re starting to believe your quest for revenge is finally going somewhere…After shooting up with your medication on Dr. Pailsen’s orders you awake in your small room aboard the Avalon feeling surprisingly energized and refreshed. You’re not really sure how a drug that leaves you paralyzed and in intense agony for a solid hour can leave you feeling so great afterwards, but if Dr. Pailsen wasn't concerned with the side effects it's probably nothing to worry about. You flip on the lights and check the clock on your phone, only to find that it's 4:00 AM. Even if the Special Corp is an irregular unit, you doubt that anything is going to be done at four o'clock in the morning unless someone's on orders. In basic training 6:00 AM was the normal wake up time and it seems to be that way for the rest of the military in normal circumstances. Crashing back onto your bed and sleeping another two hours is tempting, but you're not sure you'd be able to sleep with the energy running through you. Looking around your small, grey walled room you think on what you could do with your time.Cecile gave you a thick stack of manuals, one for the Sutherland Club, another for the Lancelot Club, and from your skimming of them last night you noticed a couple unfamiliar weapon manuals as well. You could probably read through them properly in two hours if you sat down and concentrated.There's also the fact you're not at all familiar with the layout of the ship. The Avalon is a large and unique vessel, one you'll probably be spending a lot of time on given how the Special Corp is based out of it. It might be useful to poke around for a bit and try to get an idea of where everything is.>(1/2)
>>36183699Then again you've been pretty active lately, you've yet to give yourself a break. Maybe you should just relax, take a shower, and think about things for a bit. Maybe you could give someone a call on your phone...What do you wish to do Shirley? >Read through the manuals >Explore the ship and try to get to know the layout.>Relax and think about your plans for the future.>Other (Write in)
>>36183704>Read through the manuals
>>36183704>>Read through the manuals>>36183704
>>36183704>>Read through the manuals
>>36183704>Read through the manuals Also>Relax>plans for the future.I don't think those coincide at all..
>>36183704>>Explore the ship and try to get to know the layout.
>>36183704>Read through the manualssend Rick an email, ask if he knows where to get a fabulous mask
>>36183699Yeaaaah, it's time for Code Geass !>... read the fucking manual
>>36183801>send Rick an email, ask if he knows where to get a fabulous maskI over heartedly second this idea
>>36183801>>36183824how fabulous are we talking here?
>>36183915We should have picked up something like this.. before arriving here. That and maybe a haircut.
>>36183704Darn you Crosswire!I wanted to fuck Earl Pudding'
we don't need a fucking mask...we got the fucking sunglasses all ready!
>>36183943>>36184041we should have but some people thought a pair of sunglasses would be enough, considering the one most famous for wearing sunglasses to hide his identity was oh so succesfullOH WAIT
>>36183943Better late than never, dude.>>36184041Riiiiight, they sure helped us last thread.
>>36184041Yeah really pissed I missed the last one. Never got the damn tweet. Still agitated everyone came clean and showed up with goddamn sunglasses.Clearly this cannot come back to bite us in the ass.
>>36183704>Explore the ship and try to get to know the layout>Read through the manualsHow about we explore the ship to see if there is someplace comfortable we can read besides our room.>>36184096To be fair, at the point where the last thread started, it was already too late. If we were going to get a mask, we should have done it 2 threads ago. Of course, the mask would make us even more suspicious.
>>36183858Since our antagonist is zero, whose mask symbolizes a "0", maybe we should get ourselves a mask which symbolizes a "1" ?Just a random thought.
>>36184167considering how people in the brittania dress we could probably get away with calling the mask a fashion statement or something. besides there is already an entire unit of masked dudes in the army
>>36183968>I wanted to fuck Earl Pudding'That's Milly's job now I'm afraid. >>36183801>>36183824As nice as the sunglasses you have are, you need something that properly hides your face. Maybe a mask? A lot of people seem to be wearing them nowadays. You should probably do something with your hair too, though cutting it might not be the best idea considering you'll be going back to Ashfords eventually. You're clueless on where you'd get a mask but consider the sunglasses you got from Rick were designer shades, maybe he knows someone who could make you something? It’s a bit early to send an email, but you do know Rick’s cell number so you decide to send him a quick text instead.[Hey Rick. Do you know where I can get a cool looking mask?] Putting your phone on vibrate to wait for a reply you sit down on your bed and break out the manuals you were given by Cecile. They're thick, wordy, and as dull to read as the paper they're printed on. You're not reading them for entertainment though, you're reading them to become better acquainted with the tools that will be taking the lives of others and preserving your own.Still, you can't help but be reminded of your rather average grades back at school. Didn't someone help you study for your exams a lot? No...no you'd remember if someone did. Looking at the stack of manuals you decide on which one you'd like to read first...>RPI-13Z Sutherland Club Manual>Z-01b Lancelot Club Manual>RA-60K-1Z 60mm Coilgun Assault Rifle Manual>RBE-0Z Chaos Mine Manual>Other (write in)
>>36184227>RPI-13Z Sutherland Club Manual>Z-01b Lancelot Club ManualI forget which one we're flying. So whichever is the primary machine for us now.Great to have you running Crosswire.
>>36184227>RPI-13Z Sutherland Club ManualStart with what we're driving first then go from there.
>>36184227>>RPI-13Z Sutherland Club Manual>RBE-0Z Chaos Mine Manualwe already know how to use the coilgun right?
>>36184227>No...no you'd remember if someone did. Hell I'm sad now.>Z-01b Lancelot Club ManualIf we do get a mask any ideas? I don't know of any Amnesic figures from lore... maybe a Greek tragedy mask?
>>36184227>RPI-13Z Sutherland Club ManualBest to get acquainted with piloting it first then with the weapons.
>>36184227>RPI-13Z Sutherland Club ManualAnd then, If we have some time left>Z-01b Lancelot Club Manual
> Didn't someone help you study for your exams a lot? No...no you'd remember if someone did. god dammit Lulu
>>36184227>RPI-13Z Sutherland Club Manual>No...no you'd remember if someone did. channel your hate into studying, start throwing force lightnings randomly
>>36184406>>36184458>>36184377>>36184310why didnt anyone protect that smile :(
>>36184458If she spontaneously develops a geas from the power of hate im going to call bullshit.
>>36184481Who's Surely? We're Xinlu Kuu. She seems familiar though... We'd remember if we knew her.. the medicine is still working.
>>36184484i dont think it will go that far.but if we are confronted by a creepy kid with disgustingly long har then thats a different story entirely
>>36184533Well yeah of course. So far this has been a farily close to canon Au so spontaneous sith seems off. Having someone with a code give us one however, yeah I could see that.
>>36184227>That's Milly's job now I'm afraid. Pretty sure Earl is Mechasexual, and only married so people would stop asking to marry him
>>36184619>Pretty sure Earl is Mechasexual, and only married so people would stop asking to marry himOh of course, I was just messing around. Lloyd's only love is the Lancelot. >>36184246>>36184252>>36184294>>36184314You decide to start with the manual for the Sutherland Club, after all that’s what you’re going to be piloting first.The manual is pretty thick and it takes you a solid hour to get through it all. From what you can glean from the pages of the manual the Sutherland Club functions like a heavily enhanced version of a regular Sutherland. It’s mobility and speed are greatly improved from the standard model but it’s performance is ultimately inferior to that of a Gloucester. The unit features a small, more advanced Factsphere capable of picking up and displaying electromagnetic emissions commonly produced by active Yggdrasil drives.The Sutherland Club is also equipped with two "Blaze Luminous" Shield projectors on the forearms of the Frame. These are apparently cutting edge energy shield units capable of deflecting or blocking most conventional attacks. They do however put a heavy strain on the Energy Filler when in use and while they can block/deflect most attacks the physical impact could possible damage the joints of the arm.Outside of there's not much else to the Sutherland Club outside of an additional pair of Slash Harkens on the forearms. These can be fired normally or extended and used as forearm mounted blades if necessary.It seems like a pretty cool unit, but it's repeated in several pages that the unit is using experimental parts, particularly in the head and leg regions. There's a possibility of encountering issues or suffering flat out technical failures with these parts, so caution is advised in pushing the suit too far.>1/2
>>36184724You move onto the Lancelot Club manual and find yourself confronted by textbook of a manual with complex figures, heavy technical wording, and a lot of information to convey. Reading through the entire manual is a slog but even just by skimming through some of the more figure heavy pages you come to understand that the Lancelot Club, while inferior to the Lancelot, is still a very powerful machine that leaves even the high performance Gloucesters in the dust. Performance wise it's outstanding and it has a range of motion that the older generation Knightmares literally can't emulate normally. However just going by the information the manual presents you the Lancelot Club seems like a very sensitive machine in regards to control. It's supposedly able to replicate any motion the human body can do and more so, but relies very heavily on pilot control and coordination instead of pre-programmed movement patterns. It dawns on you that the Frame will be heavily reliant not merely on your piloting abilities but your physical abilities as well, at least to some degree.On top of that the unit uses a lot of experimental parts. Most are just copies of the components the Lancelot uses, but quite a lot are untested designs and systems that Lloyd put in to see if they'd work our not. Two enhanced Factsphere units in the shoulders capable of assisting in long range firing, a powerful ECM jamming system capable of interfering with communications and Factsphere usage up to 100 meters, and the state of the art equipment as the regular Lancelot.It's stated several times that most of the parts on the Club haven't been fully tested (which is probably why the Sutherland Club exists) and that if the Club is deployed before proper testing, technical failures are practically guaranteed. You don't see any mention of an ejection system on the Lancelot Club, but that's probably just a given.>2/3
>>36185008Setting down the text book, you rub your eyes and check the clock on your phone, finding it's now 6:30 AM.You could read through the manuals on the 'Chaos Mine' and the unfamiliar 60mm Coilgun, check your messages, or do something else.>Read the other manuals.>Check your messages>Something else (Write in)
>>36185008>but that's probably just a given.We should request this feature
>>36185030>>Check your messages'then>Read the other manuals.
>>36185008>Check your messagesI'd like to say you're a terrible person for narratively jinxing us about the ejection system. Now I'm going to be paranoid for the rest of the quest about it, you cheeky dickwaffle.
>>36185030>Check your messages
>>36185008>>36185057This also request they start working on an ejection system
>>36185030>Check your messages>Work out, run some laps or somethingtop shape needed to pilot Lancelot Club after all.
>>36185062OG Lancelot has no ejection system
>>36185084>>36185030This>>36185062>>36185040Honestly, Lancelots and their derivatives are too important to even consider getting a ejection system
>>36185111What about fucking exit if thing goes out of power?
>>36185030>Check your messagesThen.>Get some breakfast.
>>36185135This, modern fighter jets still have the 'rescue' lever.
>>36185057>>36185062>>36185066>>36185084You flip open your phone and check your messages, finding a reply from Rick awaiting you.>Rick: [What kind of mask? Like a domino mask, a halloween mask, or something crazy like what Zero or those Glaston Knight guys wear?]>Kuu: [Something like Zero's I guess. I want something that will hide my face and make it harder to identify me.]Surprisingly you get a reply back almost immediately from Rick.>Rick: [I know a guy who does stuff like that. He should be able to make something custom for you. He's a bit pricey but nothing too outrageous if you have plenty of spending cash. What kind of mask do you want though?]Pausing in thought you try to put into words the kind of mask you'd like to wear.>Something small but concealing, you don't want to draw too much attention to yourself.>Something intricate and intimidating, drawing attention won't be an issue if they can't see your face.>Something else (Write in)
>>36185323>Something small but concealing, you don't want to draw too much attention to yourself.
>>36185323>>Something small but concealing, you don't want to draw too much attention to yourself.Am I the only one who already misses our old gang..
>>36185323>Something small but concealing, you don't want to draw too much attention to yourself.>>36185350Yes. If we happen to meet them again they'll be a useful asset. However fucking up zero is priority.
>>36185323>Two meters tall tribal mask that weights twenty kilo
>>36185323>>Something intricate and intimidating, drawing attention won't be an issue if they can't see your face.might as well go all out>>36185350no youre not, cant belive we traded them for angstzaku
>>36185323Let's have a mask with a digital overlay, like with LEDs or something to show emoticons or symbols.
>>36185371I hope we can make them our guard in the future like >>36185391NO!
>>36185391Sorry but we're just not the funky.
>>36185391We are not going there again.
>>36185323>Something small but concealing, you don't want to draw too much attention to yourself.and braid your hair while you are Xinlu Kuu, Shirley.
>>36185323>A little from column A, a little from column BFull Frontal style, or maybe Captain Mask from G-Reco.
>>36185323does a full frontal mask count as simple or intricate
>>36185478>does a full frontal mask count as simple or intricateSimple, at least in comparison to something Zero might wear.>>36185332>>36185350>>36185354>>36185371>>36185469>Kuu: [ I just want something small and concealing, nothing too fancy.]>Rick: [Alright, I'll talk to the guy and see what he can do. I'll send you his contact info later. See ya]You put away your phone and ponder just what you'd like your mask to look like when you hear a soft metal knocking at your door. Getting up from your bed you make sure your uniform is on properly before walking over opening the door.Out in the hall you find a fully uniformed Suzaku waiting with a warm smile. "Hey Shirley they're serving breakfast down in the cafeteria, I was wondering if you wanted to eat with me, talk things over some more?"You briefly consider your options before replying...>Yes you'd like to eat with Suzaku. Maybe you could talk him into training you or helping you work out.>No, you don't wish to eat with Suzaku. >Other (Write in)
>>36185560>>Yes you'd like to eat with Suzaku. Maybe you could talk him into training you or helping you work out.
>>36185560>No, you don't wish to eat with Suzaku.
>>36185560>Yes you'd like to eat with Suzaku. Maybe you could talk him into training you or helping you work out.might as well.
>>36185560>>No, you don't wish to eat with Suzaku.
>>36185560>Yes you'd like to eat with Suzaku. Maybe you could talk him into training you or helping you work out.remember WORK WITH THE PLOT ARMOR
>>36185560>Yes you'd like to eat with Suzaku. Maybe you could talk him into training you or helping you work out.We need to git gud, so talking him into helping out could be good.
>>36185560we should not risk our own reoutation by being publicaly friendly with suzaku, also im worried we might be straying close to a suzaku route flag
>>36185560>I would rather eat with devil himselfAKA>No, you don't wish to eat with Suzaku. You guys really are pushing for Suzaku route
>>36185645he is already taken and antiwaifufags are the devil
>>36185560>Yes you'd like to eat with Suzaku. Maybe you could talk him into training you or helping you work out.need to get gud
>>36185560>Yes you'd like to eat with Suzaku. Maybe you could talk him into training you or helping you work out.Does he know about our memory issues? Can we convince him him to call off the whole go back to school thing because we're afraid of forgetting everything?Meeting with Milly is still acceptable though.>>36185645Suzaku is locked on Euphy route.
>>36185383We traded them for the newer mechs, angstzaku is just a cots to get inside a club.
>>36185662he's taken you mook
>>36185560>Yes you'd like to eat with Suzaku. Maybe you could talk him into training you or helping you work out.Get advice on how things work in this unit and combat tips, ect.
>>36185560>Yes you'd like to eat with Suzaku. Maybe you could talk him into training you or helping you work out.
>>36185663>>36185692>>36185679implying we couldnt pull of an ntr route
>>36185560>>No, you don't wish to eat with Suzaku.we should not be to friendly with a social pariah
>>36185718you fucking wish!also black and gold would make a sweet custom paint job!
>>36185560>No, you don't wish to eat with Suzaku. Also what about trying to seduce Zero?
>>36185742Lets not even get a paintjob
>>36185742hmmm would make a nice contrast to suzaku's machine >>36185765HERESY!
>>36185560>Yes you'd like to eat with Suzaku. Maybe you could talk him into training you or helping you work out.Because we have no reason to turn him down really.
>>36185775>>36185742We all know you're talking to yourself here
>>36185775What... we just forgot to paint it!
I think we're going to have to have a final destination vote, were we do quote and number for our choice only
>>36185560>No, you don't wish to eat with Suzaku. >>36185779So him being social pariah that is blackmailing us is not good enough reason?
>>36185790>>36185775>>36185742I'd prefer not to piss of Lloyd with that. Besides, it's just fucking paint.
>>36185801this is getting out of hand.
>>36185802do you honestly think anyone in the special division actually gives a fuck? besides, we are friends with him at school.
>>36185805>he said it was okay after we survived a few battles
>>36185805I'd go for urban camo (or whatever setting we are in), which seems perfectly reasonable.
>>36185831>OkayOkay doesn't mean he agrees. Okay means he TOLERATES.
>>36185829shirley is not kuu
>>36185836>Camo>In a MechaWat
there are so many important people who dislikes numbers, its not worth it alienating them just to be friendly with suzaku
>>36185846oh yes she is. For all of our talk otherwise, Kuu is Shirley, she knows she is Shirley, and we don't have any bullshit multiple personalities.
>>36185873there are also quite a lot of very important people who don't mind numbers, and we are in the same division, making us a team effectively, so it's in out best interest to get along with each other so we can act as a team.
>>36185873And none of them are in the special division. Social taboo goes out of the window for that reason here. There is the fact he blackmailed us, but if we isolate him too much then he'll just blackmail us harder.
>>36185875i meant shirley is openly suzakus friend from school, kuu has no to be friendly with the upstart number who seduced and ruined a princess of the empire
>>36185560>>Yes you'd like to eat with Suzaku. Maybe you could talk him into training you or helping you work out.Maybe if we hang around him long enough, some of his plot armor will rub off on us..
>>36185588>>36185617>>36185621>>36185623>>36185643>>36185668>>36185679>>36185709>>36185714>>36185724>>36185779"Sure, I'd like that. What kind of food do they serve on this ship anyway?" You step out into the hallway and close the door behind you, deciding it's best to stay friendly with Suzaku."The same food they would serve on a military base, nothing special. Though Cecile likes to bake things now and then which tend to be...interesting." The look on Suzaku's face when he says 'interesting' is the same one you'd probably have if someone said you needed a root canal. Miss Cecile seems nice enough though, her cooking can't be that bad.You walk down the hall with Suzaku and enter the Cafeteria with him. It's a fairly open room and seems fairly small for a ship of this size. However from the looks of it the Avalon is running of a skeleton crew of sorts, which makes sense considering it's still a vessel in testing.After going through the line and getting yourself some rather tasty looking waffles, you sit down with Suzaku and begin to eat. He doesn't say anything to you though that might just be because he's trying to give you some space. Staying silent wouldn't really do anything for you, maybe there's something you could talk about with him?>Ask him about the Special Corp and helping you train.>Ask him about how Milly and the others are doing back at school.>Ask him something personal (Write in)>Something else (Write in)
>>36185904>with the upstart number who seducedNo basis for thinking this, unlikely they're in an actual official relationship either.> and ruined a princess of the empireAgain, no basis for this. She willingly gave up her own title to start the area of Japan in area 11, completely unrelated to Suzaku.>>36185954>Ask him about the Special Corp and helping you train.
>>36185954>Ask him about the Special Corp and helping you train.
>>36185954>>Ask him about how Milly and the others are doing back at school.
>>36185966>No basis for thinking this, unlikely they're in an actual official relationship either.i ment that this is how most people probably interpret theit relationship
>>36185954>Why have you decided to blackmail me into playing your date in school?
>>36185954Crosswire, in the future, when there is obvious samefagging, especially when it's on both sides, you need to call for a vote about which action we want to take like so to make it a lot harder to samefag.You give the two, or more, options numbers, and then tell everyone to quote that post specifically with the number corresponding to the one they want, and ONLY the number. Nothing extra. No periods, Commas, anything else. after five minutes from when your post called for the vote, close the voting and count them up. This way we can keep the voting fair.oh, and>Ask him about the Special Corp and helping you train.Because it would do help us a lot if we trained.
>>36185966in the eyes of the general populace he is the son of the former japanese PM favoured by the princess whom after making him her knight decides to sacrifice her rank to help the japanese people, how would this look to someone who has no meta knowlege
>>36186037>You give the two, or more, options numbers, and then tell everyone to quote that post specifically with the number corresponding to the one they want, and ONLY the number. Nothing extra. No periods, Commas, anything else. after five minutes from when your post called for the vote, close the voting and count them up. That's a good idea. I have been suspecting some same posting as of late, I think that's what I'll begin doing from now on.
>>36186069That is what most QMs do when there is obvious samefagging.
>>36185999Oh yes, just like Cornelia and Gilbert G.P. Guilford, right? No.>>36186050It looks strange, but not everyone is going to jump to the conclusion "OH THEY'RE FUCKING LIKE RABBITS!">>36186069>>36186037Final Destination does nothing to stop samefagging at all, nothing does. There's no point to doing this and it'll waste time. If you want a demonstration then I can prove it to you.
>>36186091it doesn't stop it, but it makes it harder to do so.
>>36186114Actually it makes it far easier.
>>36186147>>36186146>>36186134>>36186124Want another demonstration Crosswire? I'd be happy to show you how useless Final Destination is.
>>36186186Well speaking as a random anon. I'd appreciate it.. if you'd just vote once. Because at this point I'm ready to drop because if you don't get your way you'll just samefag every vote.
>>36185954>>Ask him about the Special Corp and helping you train. gotta git gud
>>36186218I haven't actually voted much at all in this thread, put in a thing for asking Suzaku to help train us, but that's it. Just because I can samefag, doesn't mean I do.
>>36186186If you could do this in other quests that would be grreat..
>>36186186No, no that's fine. It's unfortunate there's no real method to combat this issue .All I can do is ask that people refrain from posting more then once in regards to voting. >>36185969>>36185991>>36186008>>36186037>>36186093At first you're uncertain on what to ask him. Something about school? Something about himself? You decide to just ask him about the Special Corp instead, a simple and neutral topic. "Hey Suzaku, what does the Special Corp do exactly? Outside of testing weapons and stuff." You ask as you take a bite of one of your waffles."As a combat unit we mostly do whatever we're told too, we're an irregular unit and not really given any one job. Sometimes we're asked to assist in combat operations and others we're asked to help clean up the mess made afterwards, sometimes both. Like back in Narit-" Suzaku stops mid sentence and cringes, obviously having spoken absentmindedly.You just shrug coldly. "I've already had to dig bodies out from rubble once before Suzaku, doing it again isn't going to be a big deal. How often do we get to fight though?""It depends on the activity of the terrorists. I usually get sent out whenever there's a major battle, though we've been asked to participate in some smaller scale operations since things have quieted down." Suzaku frowns and you feel he's going to ask you something uncomfortable so you change topics."Suzaku, do you think you could help me train?"Suzaku tilts his head at that question. "Sure, I guess. I'd be happy to train you if I can, but what do you want training in?""Piloting mostly, though I'd like to try and get into better shape. From what I could get from the manual of the Lancelot Club it requires a lot of physical skill to use it properly."The honorary Britannian nods his head. "If it's anything like the Lancelot you're probably right. Giving you some pointers in piloting and helping you work out will be easy, but maybe you should consider some other training.">(1/2)
>>36186461I know Archelon's quests have rampant samefagging, I seem to recall Languid's quest did as well but its been a while.
>>36186476>No, no that's fine. It's unfortunate there's no real method to combat this issue .All I can do is ask that people refrain from posting more then once in regards to voting.Only method I've thought of actually is having a strawpoll open for about a minute. That however comes with it's own share of hugely quest breaking problems, so I wouldn't advise it.
>>36186539arch's quest have been fine since the waifu locks
>>36186602Or Moot can stop being a cuck and implement posting IDs
>>36186634Which also comes with a whole host of it's own problems as well. Not just for quests either, an entire board could suffer from that.
>>36186652how about if the OP allows it?
>>36186634Because I couldn't just set up a few accounts.
>>36186666Annoying to implement and likely to fuck up the board with bugs, with little reason considering quests are a minority on /tg/ on top of that.Posting IDs also wouldn't work well against multiple devices either, which people likely have.
>>36186652>>36186685>>36186691You obviously dont understand what i mean
>>36186685Because that applies to the decisions made AFTER the route lock.
>>36186705No, I do. There are posting IDs on /soc/, which I visit from time to time due to the female audio threads.But, again. Has it's own share of problems. Also doesn't fix >>36186696 which I pointed out.
>>36186476"Other training?" You ask, raising a brow as you skewer another chunk of syrupy waffle with your fork."Yeah. You may be a pilot, but you need to be able to defend outside of the cockpit if you want to stay alive. How good are you with firearms?" "I got trained to use a lot of guns in basic training, but rifles always feel awkward in my hands. I can shoot them, but I prefer pistols." Your head begins to hurt a little when you say that, but you don't know why..."You probably got some hand to hand combat training in basic, right? Well I think it wouldn't hurt if you learned some martial arts on the side. I'm not a master or anything but I could teach you what I know. How about it?" >Agree. Let Suzaku train you in martial arts.>Disagree. You probably won't need to fight anyone in hand to hand.>Other (Write in)
>>36186737>Agree. Let Suzaku train you in martial artstime to break a mother fucker!
>>36186737>>Agree. Let Suzaku train you in martial arts.SPINSHIRLEY?
>>36186737>>Agree. Let Suzaku train you in martial arts.

>>36186747Is that tiger?
>>36186737>Agree. Let Suzaku train you in martial arts.
>>36186737>>Disagree. You probably won't need to fight anyone in hand to hand.i want to say this but it would be nice to be able to give lulu an old fashioned asswhopin
>>36186799>>36186776>>36186761>>36186758>>36186756>Agree. Let Suzaku train you in martial arts."That might be a good idea. There's no sense in me dying outside of my cockpit because I can't throw a proper punch." You nod and Suzaku smiles, if somewhat awkwardly."Like I said before, I'm not a master. Even when I teach you everything I know chances are you'll be lacking in certain areas because of the holes in my understanding. However you'll be better of knowing something then nothing. We can start whenever you want or get the time too." You and Suzaku get back to eating, half way finished with your meals.>Is there anything else you wish to ask Suzaku?
>>36187004>Is there anything else you wish to ask Suzaku?"How is Euphemia?"+"How is Lelouch?"
>>36187004how is Lelouch
>>36187004>>36187041I'm not sure we can actually think about Lelouch directly without it hurting, So i'm going to vote against that part and instead ask "How is Milly?"
>>36187004"How is Euphemia?""How is Milly?"Best not to talk about Lulu. Psychotic rage is bad manners.
>>36187102>>36187145>>36187167"How are Milly and the others at school doing?" You ask, now rather curious as to how everyone's been since you've left."Well outside of being worried to death about you, everyone's been doing alright. Kallen's been missing school like usual due to sickness, Nina graduated early and got a job at an alternative energy research institute here in the settlement, and Milly's been busy trying to keep everyone's spirits high with all the rumors about Zero's return floating around." Suzaku explains as he cleans his plate of the last few bites of food remaining on it."What about Rivalz?" "He's still pretty bummed about Milly getting married to Lloyd, if the guy was any older I'd be worried about him taking to drinking." You can't help but smirk a little at that. As much as you like Rivalz, you always figured his pining for Milly wouldn't turn out well. "Nunnally and Lel-"You wince at the word and immediately change gears, asking the first thing that comes off the top of your head."How's Princess Euphemia doing?"Suzaku stops as you ask that and just frowns. It's not an angry or disapproving frown, it's the kind of face someone gets when they're reminded of something awful. He opens his mouth to speak, as if prepared to rehearse some line he's repeated over and over again, but he stops and hesitates."She's not doing very well." He eventually says, practically through gritted teeth. "She barely eats or speaks anymore, half the time she doesn't leave her bed. It's all I can do just to make sure she's bathing regularly."You look across the table at Suzaku, eyes wide with disbelief."What? What happened?""The attack on the Zone happened. She was there at the Special Administrative Zone when it was attacked. I made sure she wasn't hurt but...she saw everything that happened there. All the killing, all the fires, all those innocent people gunned down and crushed by Sutherlands.">1/2
>>36187656"At first I thought it was just shock from seeing all that carnage, but it only got worse and worse as the Zone began to fall apart. By the time the Zone collapsed she was practically manic. I was such an idiot for not realizing what was wrong until then. Even though I protected her I still ended up failing to keep her safe..." Suzaku's hands curl up into fists and he looks away from you."Is the princess really that bad? Why haven't I heard anything about it?" You push your tray away from you, suddenly losing your apetite."The information hasn't been made public. Euphemia may have given up her title, but she's still related to the Royal Family. A former Princess going mad and trying to kill herself on a regular basis wouldn't be good for anyone's reputation. I think Cornelia might have done something to keep it under wraps, but most of the nobles have heard about it already. It's not like they thought much of her to begin with." Suzaku buries his face in his hands and hides his face as he speaks."The worst part in all this is that it wasn't Zero's fault. I was so sure he was going to try and ruin the Zone when he said he'd give his full support. It didn't make any sense for him to support the very place that was going to make him worthless. But he was right there when it all happened, he nearly got shot along with Euphemia. I was so convinced he was responsible for what happened to the Zone and Euphemia, but all the people who attacked were Britannians. The Black Knights weren't involved at all..."The Cafeteria's bright and cheerful atmosphere is an almost sickening contrast to what you've been told. You didn't know Princess Euphemia, what with her being royalty, but you remember hearing how sweet she was from Suzaku. To hear someone so wonderful, so important to one of your friends has become so unhinged is just disgusting...>Give Suzaku your condolences.>Try to convince Suzaku that the Black Knights were involved somehow.>Other (Write in
>>36188139>Give Suzaku your condolences.
>>36188139>>Give Suzaku your condolences.
>>36188139>Give Suzaku your condolences.lets try not to set him off
>>36188139>Give Suzaku your condolences.>Offer the possibility that the Black Knights might be involved anywayWell, it is Zero. Rather than trying to convince him when we don't have concrete evidence, planting a seed of doubt might be for the best. That way, if Lelouche really did do something to fuck with the zone, it'll only cement his righteous fury even more so when he discovers it on his own.
>>36188139>Give Suzaku your condolences.Relate what happened during your raining, you have suspicions this may be connected..
>>36188139>Encourage Suzaku"She'll get better Suzaku, you just have to stay close by for when she needs you."That's what you're supposed to say in these situations, right?
>>36188256There is no right answer.
>>36188139>Give Suzaku your condolences.i guess this means less guilt for lulu this time around
>>36188139>Offer the possibility that the Black Knights might be involved anyway
>>36188238shit ask him if the frames that attack had red shoulders
>>36188285Unless explicitly shown Lulu did it.Cold outside? Lulu.Stub toe? Lulu.Sneeze? Lulu.
>>36188301shit forgot about those fucks! THIS!
>>36188139We have a world famous brain chemist on board. Mayne he can help the princess?
>>36188139>>36188301Smart man. Forgot about this entirely. Seconded

>>36188301>>36188329>>36188347>>36188371>>36188384There's only one faction with red shoulders, and that's the purist faction. Which would easily be identifiable and recognized by, well, everyone.
>>36188443nope their is a new one with only one red shoulder that we found out about
>>36188443one problem with that chief in the first thread we got attacked by KMF's with red shoulder's called the red baron's
>>36188319How cute, even when she's hell bent on vengeance she's still obsessing over Lulu.
>>36188443Those assholes who bushwhacked at the start of the quest. One red shoulder.
>>36188502Can't remember who did it? L.. L... He.. He did it.. whoever.. he was..
>>36188502god help him if we get this geass removed!
So anyone else think we've forgotten more than we've seen? I have a feeling we're going to go to that school and not know critical things/people and it will become obvious.
>>36188548At least he can't make us kill our self or something.Also seriously the red shoulders thing.
>>36188329>>36188301>>36188371>>36188384"I don't really know what to say Suzaku, that's absolutely terrible. I hope Euphemia recovers quickly." The words that leave your mouth are some of the most honest ones you've spoke in weeks. Regardless of your mixed feelings for Suzaku, you don't see why someone he loves has to suffer."Thank you Shirley. I'm sure she'll get better soon..." Suzaku gives a thankful smile, but his tone is less then optimistic.You're about to stand up to dispose of your tray, but when you do a question pops into your mind."Suzaku, those Knightmare frames that attacked the Zone. Was there anything odd about them?""Huh? No not really, they were just normal Sutherlands.""Not about the Knightmares themselves, I mean about their paint jobs. Did any of them have red shoulders?"Suzaku looks at you in confusion for a moment but he gives a nod after a moment of thought. "Yeah, the Sutherlands all had one of their shoulders painted red. I didn't think anything of it really, the Purist Faction had both shoulders painted red so I just assumed they were trying to emulate them or something...why do you ask?">Tell Suzaku about the Red Shoulders.>Lie, don't tell Suzaku about the Red Shoulders>Other (Write in)
>>36188587>Tell Suzaku about the Red Shoulders.HE MUST KNOW!
>>36188587>Tell Suzaku about the Red Shoulders.
>>36188587>Lie, don't tell Suzaku about the Red Shouldershe migth do something rash before we have enough evidence
>>36188587>Tell Suzaku about the Red Shoulders.I don't necessarily follow the enemy of your enemy is your friend, but better to focus him on their throat, and he can forget about us.
>>36188587>Tell Suzaku about the Red Shoulders.Also tell him they left us no evidence we can use, just to keep it cool and keep an eye out.
>>36188587>>Tell Suzaku about the Red Shoulders.
>>36188632Mr plot armor is going to crack this wide open I bet
>>36188751my god that paint job makes my eyes hurt
>>36188606>>36188615>>36188634>>36188657>>36188658>>36188662You decide to tell Suzaku about the Red Barons who tried to kill you and the other trainees at the Mt. Odake base. You tell him about the attack, Drill Sargent Delson's involvement, and how killing you and the other trainees was to test their 'enhanced' loyalty. You leave out some details involving you investigation (and how you nearly disemboweled Delson) but Suzaku gets the meat of the information.He just looks at you, wide eyed and stunned. "But that doesn't make any sense, the people who attacked the Zone were supposed to be armed civilians. Why would mercenaries attack the Zone? Why would they try to kill Euphemia? If they did then they'd be hunted...""Only if they were found out Suzaku. You didn't realize the connection till I told you, I don't many others have. There's no evidence to what I'm saying, but maybe it's something you should look into..." You're about to leave the cafeteria when Cecile runs over to you."There you two are, we just got a call from the brass asking us to assist in an operation!""What? Huh?" Suzaku snaps out of his troubled train of thought and looks to the dark haired women."They found a rebel base on Mt. Gongen that they believe is responsible for attacking the base on Mt. Odake. Apparently they're working out of an old shrine near the base of the mountain.""Wait, are you talking about the Gongen Shrine?" Suzaku asks as he stands up."Yes, I think that's the name, why do you ask?""No reason, it's just odd. When I was a kid that shrine was always said to be cursed, something about a demon being sealed up beneath the shrine or something like that. It's stupid, but a lot of people were afraid of going there. Why would the rebels be based out of a shrine instead of some place higher up the mountain?" >(1/2)
>>36189223ah good its time for blood!
>>36189303True we should get our drug soon
>>36189223They're trying to silence Xinlu Kuu?
>>36189323>>36189303We took it last night at end of thread.
>>36189323Just took it last night. We're good for the week.
>>36189379Didn't he say we needed to take it more regularly? I thought we had a new regimen at the end of the thread...
>>36189429ya weekly is the new regimen
>>36189223"I don't know, perhaps they thought it would keep people from searching there? Despite working out of a shrine they appear to be well armed and have the place heavily fortified against attack. We've been asked to assist in the operation to clear out the base and Lloyd was thinking this would be a perfect opportunity to let you break in the Sutherland Club." Cecile explains, looking to you with a rather detached professionalism in her eyes."Wait, isn't this a bit much? Sure she'll just be supporting the troops there but hasn't even tested her Frame yet. Maybe I should go with her..." Suzaku steps forward with concern spread across his face.Cecile shakes her head. "I know it's dangerous, but we won't be able to collect any data for the Club until it's tested in proper combat. I'll leave it up to Kuu to decide if she's able to handle this on her own, but it's a better idea to have you and the Lancelot on board in case something happens. You'd be able to come to the assist almost immediately with the Float Unit"Suzaku and Cecile look to you waiting for an answer.>You want to go this mission alone, Suzaku can fly in and assist if things go pear shaped.>You want Suzaku to accompany you this mission. >Other (Write in)
>>36189485>You want Suzaku to accompany you this mission. better safe then sorry when it breaks down!
>>36189485>You want to go this mission alone, Suzaku can fly in and assist if things go pear shaped.
>>36189485>You want to go this mission alone, Suzaku can fly in and assist if things go pear shaped.Mouth to him "Trap" so he's ready.
>>36189485>You want to go this mission alone, Suzaku can fly in and assist if things go pear shaped.You guys honestly want Suzaku to be there when we will go all insane with bloodlust?
>>36189522how is this a trap?
>>36189485>You want to go this mission alone, Suzaku can fly in and assist if things go pear shaped.If the Lancelot has rapid response and can scramble on us in a hurry, then we'll be fine.
>>36189485>You want to go this mission alone, Suzaku can fly in and assist if things go pear shaped.Was, Sutherland Club? Wasn't it Lancelot Club?
>>36189485>>You want to go this mission alone, Suzaku can fly in and assist if things go pear shaped.no training wheels
>>36189540These guys are the guys who bushwacked us in training and now we're getting this mission just as we arrive. Too many coincidences for my liking. Smells like a trap to silence us via death in combat by someone pulling the strings.
>>36189485>You want to go this mission alone, Suzaku can fly in and assist if things go pear shaped.But be careful, don't try to go to fast and get used to it first.
>>36189553Lancelot Club comes later. The Sutherland Club is to test all the experimental stuff before it goes in the Lancelot Club.
>>36189553learn to read dude we are using the SC to test shit that will end up going on the LC
>>36189485>You want to go this mission alone, Suzaku can fly in and assist if things go pear shaped.Well, boss' orders. If everything goes horrible, Spinzaku can save us. Until then, lets hone those combat skills and become the Chirico this army needs.
>>36189611When leaving Mt. Odake, they did say they would be looking for the base. Guess they just found it, and now they're calling the irregulars to assist in the operation.Besides, who would actively fuck with Shirley?
>>36189644They might not know about Shirley, Only that Xinlu was the driving force opening what should have been a closed end, and that she is now in a position to start investigating into what happened. She's a loose end that needs to be tied.
>>36189688hey as long as we don't run to a capsule we wi->"No reason, it's just odd. When I was a kid that shrine was always said to be cursed, something about a demon being sealed up beneath the shrine or something like that"oh shit
>>36189688Who the fuck is "they?" The loyalists who sicced the red shoulders on the trainees? They don't have any power over calling the irregulars in to bust up their own operation. You're going in circles.
>>36189736time for more Voltom's?
>>36189485>>You want to go this mission alone, Suzaku can fly in and assist if things go pear shaped.
>>36189741Someone playing both sides, remember if the lead is good we'll be fighting the guys who attacked and broke the zone a.k.a. the red barons. a.k.a. they guys who fucked us over in training.
>>36189736as long as he/she can remove this geass I will be fine with a contract!
>>36189541>>36189553>>36189608>>36189613>>36189629"I'm pretty sure I can do this one on my own. Besides if Suzaku can fly in and assist then there's no reason for him to try and babysit me." You say with a confident smile."Alright, as long as you're sure..." Suzaku doesn't look too pleased about your decision, but it's more worry then anything else. You're sure that will go away once you succeed in this mission.Cecile merely nods. "Alright then Private First Class Xinlu, follow me to the hanger. We'll outfit the Sutherland Club and get you ready for deployment..."(And this is where I'll end things. I think I might finish things up tomorrow, I'm not feeling well enough to finish things.)
>>36189940Thanks for running Crosswire. Guess we'll see how good Shirley really is when we walk into this trap.
>>36189940thanks for running dude.
>>36189940That's fine. You don't have to finish things up tonight if you don't feel well. it's better to run a quest when you aren't sick.
>>36189940thanks for running
http://suptg.thisisnotatrueending.com/archive/36183699/Thanks for understanding everyone. I'll probably see you all tomorrow, thanks for playing!Also, since I meant to get to this today, you guys will get to choose to test the Revolving Blade katana you retrieved in battle if you so desire.

Do we have to keep this thread alive or what?
