"Is something the matter?" The Emperor asks calmly. You note that he looks far more at peace than his own guards."It seems there have been multiple incidents around the city." One of the Guards says quietly. "We believe KPA insurgents are staging massed, coordinated attacks. We must get you to safety.""Oh dear, do they know we are here?" He asks."They may know you're in the city, but they do not know our exact location, considering we have not been attacked here.""I see, I see." The Emperor sighs and turns to you. "My apologies, Captain, Lieutenant. It appears that we will have to skip dessert."(cont)
>>37784884The Royal Guards quickly but quietly usher you, Janice, and the Emperor out of the restaurant and to a waiting SUV."My apologies, Emperor, but we might have a rough ride." The driver grunts. "Our latest reports have indicated that the KPA forces have completely blockaded the airport.""Oh dear, perhaps we should find an alternate place to settle down?" He asks."Ah, there's the American consulate!" Janice says. "It's not too far from here.""And it'll be fortified and protected by a at least a platoon of Marines." You nod. "And they should have an evac plan.""Aburd!" The driver grunts. "To put our Emperor's life in the hands of gaijin soldiers-""-which is exactly why the KPA wouldn't suspect it, if they really are after the Emperor." Janice cuts in."My Lord, you know that we can break a hole in the KPA lines!" The driver assures him."Hm, both plans have their merits." The Emperor nods and turns to you. "What do you suppose we should do?">We'll fight our way to the airport.>We'll take shelter at the American consulate.>Other
>>37784889WE TAKEI OUR WAY TO THE NEAREST US ALLIED AIRBASE.
>>37784889>We'll take shelter at the American consulate.>platoon of Marines>surrounded by insurgentsI like the odds.
>>37784889>We'll take shelter at the American consulate.Do what Nobunaga would have done, not Togo.
>>37784889>We'll take shelter at the American consulate.
>>37784889>>We'll take shelter at the American consulate.Offer the guardsmen to join us.Jeez, these guy is as worse as Tallarn Guardsmen.
>>37784889>>We'll take shelter at the American consulate.>>OtherOur American troops can help bolster the forces of the Royal Guards at our fortified Embassy while the Royal Guards helo pilots at the Airport can fly over to evac the Emperor from the Embassy-Fort.We have to allow a method for the Royal Guards to 'save face' and mostly take charge of the evacuation.
>>37784889>>We'll take shelter at the American consulate.
>>37784889>>37785022>Our American troops can help bolster the forces of the Royal Guards at our fortified Embassy while the Royal Guards helo pilots at the Airport can fly over to evac the Emperor from the Embassy-Fort.this sounds workable. the rg pilots wouldn't be far from their rides and i don't think they'll expect them to just fly off when the emperor isn't at the airport.
>>37784889>>We'll take shelter at the American consulate.AMERICAFUCK YEAH
>>37785110A plan so glorious, even EMPEROR TAKEI would approve!
>>37784889This >>37785022 sounds pretty good
>>37785022the diplomatic approach is the path towards future presidency.
>>37785358President candidate from Bull Moose Party?
>>37784889>Other>Call in the team.REX YOU ASS-HAT, STOP HEADPATTING GHOST AND GET THE FUCK OVER HERE!
>>37784889"Taking shelter at the consulate seems like the more prudent choice." You say. "Then that is where we shall go." The Emperor turns to the driver, smiling like a kindly grandfather. "The Emperor wills it.""Yes, my lord." The driver nods, obviously skeptical but unwilling to disobey a direct order.With the order given, the convoy rumbles out. In the distance, you could see thick black smoke wafting through the air while the whine of police sirens is near constant. The convoy, however, doesn't stop for any reason, dodging police, IJA patrols, KPA insurgents, and fleeing civilians. Thankfully, you don't seem to run into any serious resistance, most likely because the KPA were focusing on other strategic targets.However, as you pull up to the road leading to the consulate, you could see Korean policemen and US Marines hastily constructing a makeshift barricade at the front gate, while snipers and machine gunners were taking positions on the upper floors. The front car in the convoy immediately stops and the Royal Guards manning it disembark, waving their arms in the air and shouting. The Korean policemen immediately recognize them and bow in respect. The Marines, however, don't quite realize what's going on and begin aiming their weapons. (cont)
>>37785650"Shit!" You scowl as you roll open the sunroof on the SUV and stand up. You're still wearing your Air Force dress uniform, so the Marines could at the very least recognize you as a friendly. You wave frantically at the Marines until thankfully, a Marine officer runs out, presumably screaming curses at his men to stand down. He then waves the convoy to enter the gate."Jesus, you guys should at least called ahead." The Marine grunts and gives a quick salute. "Captain Parker. I'm in charge of the garrison here.""Captain." You nod. "I'm Captain Pierce, and this is Lieutenant Foster, Pararescue. We're trying to find a safe place to evac the Japanese Emperor.""Damn." Parker whistles. "But I don't think evac is an option. Command has told us to hunker down and ride this out. The roads are a mess and there might be MANPADS so helos are out of the question.""Our pilots are the best in the world." One of the Royal Guards grunts. "We have been trained to handle hot extractions.">It's your call, then.>Don't be crazy. We have no idea what's out there.>Other
>>37785671>>It's your call, then.>>Volunteer to take out the MANPADS in the meantime.
>>37785671>>Don't be crazy. We have no idea what's out there.>>OtherCall Cavalry.
>>37785671>>Other"I have no doubt of that but let us at least call in additional support. We should not place the Emperor in undue danger."We should call it in.If we get word out that the Emperor needs an Evac, I'm sure the USAF and IJN will scramble additional units to support an evac.
>>37785671>Don't be crazy. We have no idea what's out there.>Parker, any support we can call in?
>>37785671>Other>Call in our team"Team, get off your asses and get over here.""We're getting shot at here and the Japanese would be pissed if their emperor got shot."
>>37785759This one for DIPLOMATIC route.Bitches wish they were as political as us.
>>37785759thisif we're calling for support, we should get our own ghosthawk.We laugh in the face of manpads.
>>37785671>>37785759Seconding, with volunteering to clear MANPADS besides
>>37785973>>37785767Guys, our team is all the way in Japan. We're in Korea. We told them *not* to come.Despite it being blatantly obvious this would happen.
>>37786072I thought we brought them but made them stay at the airport?
>>37786072Shit, I thought we were in Japan.Where the fuck is Tarin when you need her?
>>37786197Well, at least Laika isn't here.
>>37786240That would be awkward as fuck...
>>37786197AFAIK it was *lolno stay here in Nippon muh diplomatic incident"
>>37785671This >>37785759 seems like a fairly decent idea.
>>37785671"Hey, we should probably hold off for now." You warn. "We have no idea what's out there. We should see if we can get some reinforcements here first."The Royal Guard gives you look and then nods reluctantly. "All right. We shall take the Emperor inside and assist in the perimeter defense." He grunts as he walks away."Jeez, are they all that stuffy?" Parker frowns when he's sure the Royal Guards are out of earshot."Pretty much, but their boss is pretty chill." You shrug. "Anyways, you got a comm line? I need to make a call.""We already sent out a call for support. We've already got additional units coming in." Parker says."I'm calling in my own people." You say. "This seems like a job they'll be suited for.""Go for it." Parker nods and waves over another Marine. "He'll show you to our communications room.""In the meantime," Janice steps forward. "You don't happen to have an extra set of clothes and weapons, do you? I'm afraid a bit overdressed for the occasion.""Ah, sure thing!" Parker nods, his face reddening a bit. He waves over a female consulate member.However, before you can see anything else, you're led away to the comm room, where you dial in Kelsey's number."Colonel, can you hear me?" You ask."Pierce! You're alive!" Kelsey exclaims. "Where the hell are you?""I'm holed up in the American consulate with the Emperor." You say. "We're safe for now, but we're going to need some support.""All right, we can get the Ghost Hawk out, but it's going to take a while. Seoul is pretty far off.""Can you get anything here faster?""Well... Sokolov has a an experimental addon for the XF-19..." Kelsey says. "It can carry two witches on wing mounts, and Red can hitch a ride in the second seat. It's not much, but she can get there faster than anything we've got. Trouble is, Laika wouldn't be able to carry a heavy weapons load.">Have Laika pack up on weapons.>Have Laika pack some witches.>Other
>>37786367>>Have Laika pack some witches.>>OtherBut keep Red on Ghosthawk.
>>37786367>>Have Laika pack some witches.What we need now are shields to defend the extraction.
>>37786367>>Have Laika pack some witches.Our team is probably worth more strategically than Railguns/MPBMs/TLS.
>>37786367>>Have Laika pack some witches.
>>37786367>Have Laika pack some witches
>>37786367>Have Laika pack some witches.
>>37786367>>Have Laika pack some witches.Laika doesn't need a heavy weapons loadout to cause damage.
>>37786367>Have Laika pack some witches.Her weapons are too risky in a city, and we need point shields for the evacuation
>>37786367>Have Laika pack some witches.Laika needs only deploy witches and bug out, sticking around for longer increases chances of being shot down by MANPADS.Witches can cover us against MANPADS with less collateral than an XF-19 loaded with Anti Ground weapons.
>>37786367>Have Laika pack some witches.Don't know if heavy weapons would be useful in this situation. But a witch or two would be very useful regardless of the situation
>>37786367>and Red can hitch a ride in the second seatAnd how is she getting out of it? Besides that, I rather have her in the ghosthawk.
>>37786367>Have Laika pack some witches.It's not like the KPA has a lot of air cover. Laika'll be fine with guns.
>>37786367>Have Laika pack some witches.>Otherpack any other weapons she can.
>>37786530Parachute?Other witch carries her down?Uses shield to soften impact?Laika's ace pilot skills?
>>37786552>It's not like the KPA has a lot of air coverDon't taunt murphy, don't tempt fate.>>37786621Opening canopy in middle of flight sounds like the last thing you want to do with a jet plane, especially if you still want to drive it.
>>37786659I think the biggest air cover problems would, as Red Dragon teaches me, MANPADS and AA Guns. Dunno if they would've gotten some in though. Trucks with 20mm/23mm/etc are hard to hideish.
>>37786659It's a Morgan, we can literally chalk it up to the same magic bullshittery that made the ECM work like it did in Zero
>>37786367"Let's mount some witches." You say. "Got it. Who do you want to have deployed?' Kelsey asks.>Pick 2 witches to bring.>Also whether you want Red to come along or not.>Other
>>37786659Its not like anything the KPA can put in the air will be able to take on Laika and our witches + whatever witches the RG has.
>>37786721Tarin and...somebody. Mostly Tarin.
>>37786721>>Pick 2 witches to bring.Tarin + Jetstream>>Also whether you want Red to come along or not.Yes
>>37786721Tarin and IDGAF who else let them draw straws or summat
>>37786721>Tarin and Jetstream>Yes to Red coming
>>37786721>Tarin and Nungesser>Bring Tarin along.
>>37786721>Pick 2 witches to bring.>Frenchy and Jetstream >Also whether you want Red to come along or not.No.
>>37786721We want:Tarin & NungesserRed comes too, just incase the Emperor gets hit, we need the BEST.
>>37786721>Tarin and Euclid>Bring Red
Should we bring Jetstream or Elucid?I sorta get the feeling she can snipe manpads.
>>37786721>Tarin>Nungesser>and keep red on Ghost Hawk
>>37786721>>Pick 2 witches to bring.Tarin and Jetstream>>Also whether you want Red to come along or not.Yes
>>37786792You remember that Janice is a heal witch, right?
>>37786721Tarin and Nungesser.
>>37786721Bring Tarin and Jetstreamand Bring Red too.
>>37786721>"Let's mount some witches."Oooooh my~>Tarin & Jetstream>Red should come.
>>37786827You remember that we're talking about keeping the fucking Emperor safe, right? That there is no such thing as too many healwitches in this scenario, right?
>>377868272 Healwitches is better than 1 my good Anon.Besides, we kinda want one of them pulling up a shield in case shit hits the fan. And if the enemy has brought in their own witches, we should have two on the deck with us for directly BTFO'ing enemy witches.
>>37786905we've already mounted one anyways.>>37786921i expect some of the close protection detail of the RG will be heal witches too. It'll be irresponsible of them not to have some nearby at all times.
>>37786921>>37786924not that anon, but now i curious what kind of crazy stunt Laika will do to justify bringing Red on X-19.
>>37786962The more witches the better!>More withes=more shields>More shields=better protection>Better protection=safer emperorTHUS:>More witches=safer emperor>>37786989Red will just sit on Laika's lap or some shit.Then Laika will hover just next to the heli-pad and red will jump out.
>>37787065....Okay, that will work.
>>37787065No i'm not arguing that more witches means a better safety net. Just wanted to point out that theres probably a couple more heal witches in the convoy as well.
>>37786721"Get Tarin and Jetstream ready." You say. "And have Red ride along, too." "Got it. We'll start making the necessary preparations." Kelsey nods. "You guys just sit tight until then.""Got it." You say as the line cuts.With the call done, you head back out to the courtyard, where you could see a squad of Marines gearing up. "What's going on?" You ask Parker."Well, since our perimeter defenses got bolstered with Royal Guards, I was figuring that we'd have the spare manpower to send out a patrol. Just scout out what's around us, and try to deter the KPA from pushing against our perimeter."You then see Janice, now wearing a spare Marine combat uniform and toting an M249, walk in."Ah, Will!" She says as she turns to you. "Just in time! I was just about to head out with them!">Oh no, you're staying here.>Why am I not surprised?>Guess I'll have to tag along to keep you out of trouble.>Other
>>37787254>Why am I not surprised?>>Guess I'll have to tag along to keep you out of trouble.
>>37787254>>Why am I not surprised?>>Guess I'll have to tag along to keep you out of trouble.Battle couple
>>37787254>Why am I not surprised?
>>37787254>>Oh no, you're staying here.>>OtherI'll be goingOne of us needs to stay on base.The RG will NOT listen to anyone else save the Emperor and the local commander will not be able to convince them of anything.I vote we go and she stays.
>>37787254>>Why am I not surprised?>>Guess I'll have to tag along to keep you out of trouble.
>>37787254>>Guess I'll have to tag along to keep you out of trouble.This is kinda of our job anyway.
>>37787254>Oh no, you're staying here.Reasons why you're staying here:> 1. If the emperor gets hit then we need a healwitch on site, that's you.> 2. If the enemy brings in their own witches then we need you on site to support in protecting the emperor.> 3. If you get hurt then we cannot into helping you because we are not able to fight an enemy that can disable a witch.
>>37787323>One of us needs to stay on base.>The RG will NOT listen to anyone else save the Emperor and the local commander will not be able to convince them of anything.Thats a fair point. The only reason why the guards are even willing to listen to over advise is that we've worked with them repeatedly and even saved Katsumi. The Marine officer is going to be stonewalled as a useless Gaijin.
>>37787254>[X] Oh no, You're staying here.>[X] Other> - "I'll go.">>37787323is right, we need a 'liason' to stay behind and call the higher ups if needed. And Healwitches are important enough that one shouldn't be sent out in this situation. Remember, the objective is to protect the EMPRAH
>>37787323I like this one
>>37787323It soon turns into a small argument between the two of them on who gets to go out on patrol.That's unexpectedly cute.
>>37787551...hnnngh.mangafag, you know what you have to do.needs a panel of marines looking on with hearts bouncing off their helmets.
>>37787323Not to mention a witch's word carries more weight I think?Right guys?
>>37787647more like, would you want to disobey Janice when shes in her smiling angry face mode?
>>37787671....oh shite.You right.
>>37787671That angry smile could stop the whole goddamn war...It's a shame that it only works in person though...
>>37787671Of course I would!I'm a grown man damnit!Oh hell no where's my mommy Janice please don't actually be mad.
>>37787254"Oh no, I'll go." You shake your head. "You should stay here.""Oh dear, do you really believe that I can't handle myself in a combat situation?" Janice smiles, though you could feel the menace rise in her voice."Of course not!" You say a little too quickly. "It's just, we need somebody to stay here to keep things in order. Parker sure as hell won't be able to keep the Royal Guard in line, and I'm sure they might try something stupid. I think you're a much better peacemaker than I am."Hmmmm, okay." Janice sighs. "I'll hold down the fort, then. You be careful, okay?" She gives you a kiss on the cheek.You also notice the assorted Marines looking at you somewhat jealously. Well, too bad for them.After being hastily issued a spare vest and M16, and you're somewhat ready to head into the fires of combat."All right, let's go!" The Marine leading the squad, a Sergeant Griggs, grunts. The gate slowly opens, and you and the Marines hustle out of the compound. As the gates roll closed, you can't help but feel the consulate was much much farther away. There was still a thick layer of smoke in the air, and you could still hear sirens wailing in the distance. However, the air was now punctuated with constant gunfire and screaming, which was more than a bit disconcerting. However, you don't let it show on your face. "Whoa, hold up." Griggs hisses as he kneels down. Right away, you and the rest of the Marines take cover. Up ahead, you could see what looked to be a large gaggle of civilians, no doubt trying to flee from the fighting. However, it didn't seem like the had a clear idea of where to go, and were just wandering around aimlessly. "We'll just let them pass and we'll continue on." Griggs says. "We don't want to draw any more attention than we have to.">Leave the civilians alone.>Direct them toward the consulate.>Other
>>37787879>Leave the civilians alone.Too risky to let them in; VC operated like that, and the DPRK guerillas probably will too.
>>37787879>>Leave the civilians alone.
>>37787879>>Leave the civilians alone.If shit hit the fan, consulate will be active combat zone.>Sgt GriggsUuurah. Where is Jackson?
>>37787879>>OtherLook around. There should be a large building somewhere heading away from the consulate.Direct them into it, hopefully a basement and get them to hunker down till the all clear.
>>37787879>Leave the civilians alone.It's his men we'll be risking if shit goes south.
>>37787879>Leave the civilians alone.
>>37787879>Direct them toward the consulate.We Pararescue.We rescue ALL THE THINGS!
>>37787879>Leave the civilians alone.This seems fishy>>37787944>Where is Jackson?Fucking around in Qurac with Saddam's goons.
>>37787879>>Leave the civilians alone.The only safe place is away from the warzone, but we don't actually know where that is, so...
>>37787879>[X] Leave The Civvies AloneWhile it would be nice to send them to a safe place, like a bank, or even to teh consulate, they'll be a big target. Not to mention possible DPRK infiltrators, NVA Style.
>>37787879You stay quiet as the procession of civilians marches past. You feel that they'd only be in more danger if you sent them to the consulate. Plus, there was the danger that KPA infiltrators might be hiding among them. After the civilians are past, the squad continues moving. Eventually, you begin hearing the sounds of engines. Your movements become slower as you creep toward the source of the noise."Contacts." Griggs whispers as he peeks around an abandoned van. You dash up to where Griggs is hiding and peek out as well. You can see a number of trucks parked in a small plaza. Some of them were technicals, with large caliber guns mounted on the back. You see at least another one stocked with missile launchers, with a number of men lining up, no doubt to distribute it. From your count, there had to be at least eight technicals and fifty insurgents gathered in the plaza."Crap, that's a lot of guys." You gasp."And they're parked right under the primary air route leading to the consulate." Griggs adds. "Any helo headed this way won't stand a chance.">Just mark the location. You're here to scout, not fight.>Ambush the KPA. You can't let them dig in here.>Other

>>37788405>>Just mark the location. You're here to scout, not fight.
>>37788405>>Other"Sarge. Is there a mortar team at the consulate?"
>>37788511Good luck convincing anyone here. Better off talking to a brick wall.
>>37788405>Just mark the location. You're here to scout, not fight.Hopefully we got some mortars back at the consulate.
>>37788551>"Sarge. Is there a mortar team at the consulate?"ASK AWAY. WHATEVER HAPPENS, ASK ANYWAYS.
>>37788511Ain't no safe route with these guys this close.We need to pop a LAW or two into their missile trucks and then GTFO
We might have a bigger problem.The KPA is already beginning to siege the Embassy.Who the FUCK tipped them off fast enough that they redirected significant amount of men and arms here to deny an airroute?
>>37788731It's an American consulate. People will lay siege on those things at a drop of a hat.
>>37788731>The civilians didn't matter, the spies and agents are already in the compound and among the korean staff there.
>>37788405>>Just mark the location. You're here to scout, not fight.Better to let others know than risking a lopsided fight. But hey people decided to take on a claw using witch with a pistol and nearly getting Pierce killed.
>>37788731America is Japan's ally, they were always planning to siege the embassy, do you even Tet?
>>37788731>Japan's biggest ally has Embassy in the area>Hey guys lets ignore itYeah, no. They were always going to siege it. Probably in the top ten of things to blow up.
>>37788766>>37788779The thing is that they're doing in a very specific way. To deny an air extraction. So its likely they already know the Emperor made his way to the embassy.
>>37788812>denying the enemy use of helo's in an area they plan to siege>CLEARLY THEY KNOW THE EMP IS HERE
>>37788812Or they were trying to prevent a US personnel extraction by air
>>37788731Where the fuck did merc say that?!>>37788405>Mark site and leg it.We've got bigger fish to fry!
>>37788812Embassies have plenty of civilian workers that can be taken hostage, which you can't do if they're on a chopper bugging out of the city as fast as possible.

>>37788405"Well, we can't let them do what they want." You say. "You guys got any heavy weapons?""We got a couple of LAWs." Griggs says. "That it?" You raise an eyebrow."We're a consulate security force." Griggs grunts. "Not a frontline assault unit.""Fair enough." You nod. Only having 2 LAWs would limit what you could hit.>Attack the technicals.>Attack the weapons trucks.>Other

>>37788936>>Attack the weapons trucks.Once they finish unloading the MANPADS, they will harder to hit.
>>37788731I doubt they know that the Emperor is there. It'd just be standard procedure to try and evac civilians from an embassy, and the KPA want to stop that
>>37788936>Other>Mark and leave>Feel stupid for even suggesting in attacking them in the first place

>>37789298I still have nightmares about that Allied mission that took place in Tokyo harbor on hard.
>>37788936"I don't suppose you have a mortar crew?" You ask."Ha, you're a funny guy." Griggs laughs darkly. "Couldn't hurt to ask."Meanwhile, Griggs' men take position, with two of them aiming their LAWs at the parked cargo trucks. There's a brief pause before they fire, launching the two explosive shells. They're spot on, hitting the trucks right in the cargo beds with a loud bang, followed by countless others as the stocked munitions are set off. There's screams of alarm, pain, and terror as the KPA fighters flee from the inferno. You darkly note that a few of them were on fire as their fellows tried to unsuccessfully douse the flames."GIVE TO THEM, BOYS!" Griggs whoops as the rest of the Marines open up with their assault rifles and machine guns, cutting down another dozen or so fighters. However, as the shock and aw of the initial attack begin to wear off, the KPA fighters begin to return fire, and you could see fighters dashing for the technicals.>Keep fighting.

>>37789498"I think we should go!" You yell as the fire begins to pick up."All right, MARINES! We are leaving!" Griggs roar. "We'll peel off by teams! Go!" You and Griggs fall back down the street while the second team lays down suppressing fire. "We're headed back to the consulate!" He says. "We're gonna have all kinds of hell coming down on us now!">Good idea. We can use the extra support.>But we'll lead the KPA straight there!>Other

I've been doing some looking, but can anyone tell me what anime/game Tarin Richards is from?
>>37789991>Good idea. We can use the extra support.There's not many other places us marines would be coming from, you know?

>>37790125IIRC she based from Shiina of Angel Beats. Tarin herself comes from Merc's first quest.
>>37790207Thank you kind anon.
>>37790207>date] [Auto] 6 new postsAnd never wins a bowl.One Day Tarin, One Day.
>>37790197I don't suppose the almighty Kirovs would do good in SWverse would they?
>>37790238She won a Ramirez and had a Lucina. She did pretty damn well for herself.
Rolled 1 (1d2)>>37790242Who knows...Anyways, we got a tie, so rolling for tiebreaker!1. Retreat to consulate.2. Lead KPA away.
>>37790268Fair point, still kind of want a Tarin route one day.
>>37790285AIM FOR THE ONE WITH THE BOOZE MEN!
>>37790298SIR! I RESPECTFULLY REPORT THEY'RE RUSSIAN! ALL OF THEM HAVE BOOZE!
>>37790238She got RAMIREZ on VMQ1... too bad their daughter is less fortunate.Anyone mind if i attempt to fill something between VMQ1 and VMQ2?
>>37790297If there was a quest with both Alice and Tarin, who would you want to win? I don't think I could decide.
>>37790325do it mangafag.
>>37790323then shoot ALL OF THEM!
>>37790343Tarin, if only because she's been in more.
>>37790343the only correct answer is yes.
>>37790366Magical Girl Hunter MC, another one of Mercs completed quests.
>>37790366Go read Magical Girl Hunter Quest mangafag.And see the flipflop from naming a gun PENIS to Swiss.
>>37790350FINE! BUT I GET THE BOOZE!
>>37790297Maybe she's interested in Frank? I mean, you could make that happen. maybe. probably not. hahahahaha!
>>37790343Shit, That is a very, very hard question but I think maybe Tarin because she is long without a route. Though Alice's love life was an interesting ride.
>>37790436Nah, she can share Rex with Ghostdiva.
>>37790325Lucina had a shared victory in GBFQ so that counts for something.I still think Lucina was actually more popular in the running, its just we didn't spend too much time with her cause we had to tie everyone else's shoes as squad lead and she was competent enough to not need it. We really didn't want another Brilliant in the squad.
>>37790436Damnit Ghost stop stirring the pot!You just introduced a new beach bunny anyway!
>>37790436......It sounds tempting. Very tempting.DON'T TEMPT ME GHOST! FRANK HAS ENOUGH WITCHES AS IS! GAAAH!
>>37790285"All right Marines, let's move!" You yell as you head back the way you came. Behind, you can hear angry shouts and engines being revved as the KPA fighters prepare to pursue. You're at the home stretch when you see a pair of technicals round the corner behind you."Shit!" Griggs turns and aims his rifle, but the move is unnecessary, as a hail of bullets flies over your heads and into the technicals, shredding them to pieces and forcing the other KPA fighters and vehicles to fall back."And you wanted to keep ME out of trouble." Janice gives you a smug grin as she stows away her still smoking M249. "Um, thanks, Janice." You say sheepishly. "Good thing you came, Captain." Parker jogs up to the gate as it opens. "Our perimeter is reporting movement all over. Looks like the KPA have us surrounded.""I guess that solves the problem of us finding them, right?" You say."Ha! Well said." Parker barks with laughter. "Anyways, your plane's ETA here is fifteen minutes. We have a ground convoy headed here and they should be arriving in thirty. Thing is, looks like these KPA guys want to get in before that happens.""Naturally." You nod."Now, I know your witch gives us a big upper hand over these KPA guys." Parker says. "But unfortunately, we only have one of her."Yeah, such a pity."This leaves us the problem of how to utilize her." Parker continues. "Now, the KPA is probably going to apply pressure from all sides, but they'll certainly focus the majority of their effort on the front gate, since it's the weakest point of our defense. We can keep her on the front gate to keep it protected, or we can keep her back in the main building as a reserve in case the KPA breaches anywhere else.">Keep Janice at the front.>Keep her in reserve.>Other
>>37790436Come on Ghost, you really want more on your plate as you just introduced another girl?
>>37790460Fuck the beach bunny.Tarin > Beach Bunny any day.
>>37790486>>Keep her in reserve.We have no idea what the KPA are planning
>>37790486>Keep her in reserve.
>>37790403Still undecided as to which one was better....>>37790486>>Keep her in reserve.
>>37790486>>Keep Janice at the front.We can lead the reaction team.
>>37790486>>Keep her in reserve.>>37790436Considering Tarin do tease/joking to Bridgitte to 'invite her' next time...
>>37790486>>Keep her in reserve.>>37790503But the beach bunny is brown~
>>37790486>Keep her in reserve
>>37790532Can't name a gun PENIS infront of beloved daughteru.
>>37790486>Keep her in reserve.>>37790503Anon, phrasing
>>37790541tasty brown that must be put in the harem
>>37790541But Bridgette is also brown and Bridgette knows Tarin.It's a good deal. Beach Bunny is not that great.>>37790560Sentiment still applies, Tarin > Beach Bunny
>>37790436If Tarin just up and stole the Frankbowl under everyone's noses that would be hilarious.
>>37790605To be fair to Beach Bunny, she's been in all of one thread and is behind a half dozen other girls who are all awesome anyway. She never had a chance. But yes, Tarin > Beach Bunny. Just not for Frank.
>>37790605Long Distance Relationship is hard, anon. Inducting Tarin to Franks harem is a big problem.
>>37790647would she deflate some tits to get a advantage
>>37790662Come on anon, Tarin wouldn't want to be part of any harem. She'd take him all to herself.
>>37790647She has stealth mode, so it's possible. >>37790654But it's so tempting....>>37790662Frank can do the impossible!
>>37790486>[X] Keep Janice at the frontMaybe if we counterattack hard enough, they'll reconsider?
At least it's not a repeat of Fakerussia in IS.
>>37790696shut up MU!
>>37790686As much as I love Janice, it's times like these which makes me wonder how a Tarin route with Pierce be like? Especially with Laika?
>>37790486""Janice, we'll keep you in the main building as a reserve." You inform her. "In case the KPA make a breakthrough.""All right." Janice nods as she picks up her MG. "What about you?">I'll be on the front.>I'll be with you.>Other
>>37790787More learning basic social skills, more Pierce teasing Tarin than the other way around. Janice being all motherly and making sure we aren't taking advantage of Laika. Laika learning about knives.
>>37790811>>I'll be with you.Battle couple, cmon guys please.
>>37790811>I'll be with you.
>>37790811>>I'll be on the front.>>37790787Awkward mini-quest to get Laika opened up to Tarin.
>>37790811>I'll be with you
>>37790811>>I'll be on the front.
>>37790811>>I'll be with you.
>>37790817I like the idea of Laika making Tarin come out more.>>37790811>>I'll be with you.
>>37790846Also getting Laika to open up to Tarin, like Manga said. Imagine it, stealth Laika! Tarin pushing the wheelchair! Awkward blushing! Laika with knives! Tarin with a cute little girl on her shoulders! Horrible horrible diabetes!
>>37790811>>OtherI'll be in the back, hiding like a pussy.
>>37790906Yeah...I think Tarin needs to win a bowl.
>>37790811>Other>I'll be with the Emperor
>>37790936This is what I'm saying all this time.
>>37790811"I'll stick with you." You say. "I think we work better as a pair anyways.""Awwww, that's so sweet." Janice smiles.With that, you head back into the main building. You can already hear sporadic gunfire as KPA fighters begin to probe the consulate defenses. The Marines had plenty of ammo, but they had a lot of ground to protect, and you had no idea how many KPA there were out there. "Oh dear, will there be battle?" The Emperor asks."Whoa, what are you doing out here?" You blink. "Shouldn't you be in the safe room?""Bah, it was getting boring sitting in there. Besides, as the Emperor, I have an image to uphold." The Emperor smiles. "What would the people think if I were to cower underground during this crisis? Besides, the consulate staff have assured me this building has been built to withstand attacks such as these.""Still, I would advise you stay way from the windows." Janice sighs. "Watch out!" You hear a Marine yell and there's a loud CRASH of metal grinding against metal. You and Janice look to the front gate, where you see an armored bus ramming against the front gate."My, they are very resourceful." The Emperor frowns."Janice?" "Gladly." Janice mounts her MG on the windowsill and fires down on the bus, her magically enhanced bullets punching through the armor plates like paper. Thick smoke leaks out from the vehicle and the vehicle ends up being stuck against the gate, forming a new obstacle.(cont)
>>37791190"Nice shooting." "Why thank you!" "We've got lots of KPA swarming the back wall!" You hear a Marine yell. "They got fucking assault ladders and they're trying to scale the wall!""Same thing here!" Another defender reports.The gunfire begins to intensify. Damn, it was a freaking full court press here! At least they didn't have rocket or missile launchers to add to the mix!"Willy! WIlly! Can you hear me?" You hear Laika's voice. Oh boy did it sound angelic."Laika!" You key your radio. "Are you at the consulate?""Yep!" Laika says excitedly. "I got Reddy, Tarin, and Jetstream here, too!">Drop off the witches first.>Give us a few strafing runs first.>Other
>>37791209>Give us a few strafing runs first.Take some of the heat off of us
>>37791209>Give us a few strafing runs first.
>>37791209>>Give us a few strafing runs first."Put on a show"
>>37791209>Give us a few strafing runs firstDeploying will be easier once we thin the line a bit
>>37791209>>Give us a few strafing runs first.
>>37791209>>Drop off the witches first.Witches can strafe and hover.
>>37791209>Drop off the witches first.
>>37791209>>Drop off the witches first.
>>37791209"Soften them up with strafing runs, Laika!" You yell. "Anything you see immediately outside the compound is hostile!""Got it!" Laika says happily. You then see the angular form of the XF-19 screech over head, tracers lighting up the night as the plane rains bullets down on the KPA positions. Cannon rounds tear from vehicle and person alike, and sends KPA forces scattering, giving you some breathing room. "Orders, sir?" Tarin asks, hovering just beside you. Jesus, when did she get here?"Let's cut down these honorless dogs!" Jetstream exclaims, with a katana in one hand and SMG in the other.>Focus on defending the consulate.>Search and destroy, girls.>Other
>>37791426>Search and destroy, girls.
>>37791426>>Search and destroy, girls.We can defend the consulate, some witches mixing things up in the back will do some damage.
>>37791426>>Focus on defending the consulate.
>>37791426>>Search and destroy, girls.>>OtherLeave janice as the reserve incase they attack again. The rest can move out to mop up.
>>37791426>>Search and destroy, girls.Let them hunt, the consulate force should able to take care anything that managed to slip by them.
>>37791426>>Search and destroy, girls.We can keep Red as a reserve when Laika drops her off.
>>37791426>Other: Tarin, do what you do best with Jetstream. Red, Janice? Focus on defending the consulate.
>>37791426>OtherLet Tarin off her chain, keep Jetstream and Red back defending the Emperor.
>>37791813No you see, we need both Jetstream AND Tarin.They see the mad crazy japanese woman charging at them with a sword.They never see the stealth Tarin behind them with a knife.
>>37791690This. I'd like to keep somebody defending the consulate and Emperor>>37791426>Tarin, Jetstream, go wild. Red, Janice, help me defend this place
>>37791843But they don't see Tarin anyways, she's invisible.
>>37791859Yes but when they see the bodies, they think crazy japanese lady got to them.They never suspect that Tarin is afoot.
>>37791881Pretty sure they die to fast to realize she's afoot most of the time anyway, but I guess Jetstream could add a few to the pile.
>>37791426"Search and destroy, girls. Take them all out!" You say grimly."Yes sir." Tarin nods as she fades out of existence."Gladly!" Jestream grins with barely restrained bloodthirst.Meanwhile, Laika brings the XF-19 down, using the vectored thrust engines to keep it hovering above the courtyard long enough for Red to pop the canopy and jump down. Once Red gets a safe distance away, Laika powers up the engines and the XF-19 goes roaring into the air.The next half hour is just brutal for the attacking KPA. Those that managed to reach the walls and managed to scale to the top were instantly beheaded as Jetstream flew past and chased them down, cutting down fleeing KPA fighters like wheat. Meanwhile, an unseen phantom stalked the KPA rear lines, picking off individual soldiers and demolishing trucks carrying supplies and reinforcements.Meanwhile, in the sky, Laika's XF-19 was like a mighty flying beast from ancient times, swooping down to attack targets of opportunity and preventing the exhausted KPA from regrouping.And even more demoralizing to the KPA was that thanks to Janice and Red's efforts, battlefield treatment of the wounded was a simple matter. You were sure the KPA were confused as to how troops that had previously suffered grievous injuries were suddenly returning to the frontlines as if nothing had happened. Soon enough, the KPA fighters in the area have had enough and begin to withdraw. The consulate defenders, both Marine and Royal Guard, begin to cheer.And as always, the relief convoy arrives, just in time to practically miss everything. However, at least they managed to open up a safe evacuation corridor. The consulate staff as well as the Emperor are given first priority to be shipped out. However, as you escort him to the waiting convoy, he pauses for a second.(cont)
>>37792053"Thank you, Captain Pierce. It appears that I owe you and your witches my life." The Emperor bows to you."Just doing my job, sir." You nod your head and turn to his Royal Guard. "Besides, I doubt you were in any serious danger.""Perhaps so, but you still made a great effort." The Emperor's smile then fades. "However, today has been far more trouble than I initially believed.""What happened?" You ask."I had initially thought the KPA only attacked Seoul." The Emperor sighs. "But in fact, similar attacks have been staged simultaneously in almost every major city in Korea.""Jesus." You gasp."This will cause many great difficulties." The Emperor sighs. "Not only will it stretch our forces thinner, but now many of my ministers will push for tighter control on Korea. I will have many fires to put out when I return to Tokyo.""I wish you the best of luck." You say, mulling about today's events as well as what Anderson had told you. Maybe they were connected somehow....?(cont)
>>37792063"Soooooooo." Red sidles up next to you. "How was the date, Cap?""It wasn't a date, Red." You grunt."Really? A night out in town, a nice dinner, and shooting up a bunch of terrorists? I'd call that an awesome date!" Red grins and prods you with her elbow. "Well?""I'm interested to know what happened as well." Tarin says, appearing out of nowhere like usual."I'm actually a bit more interested in what the Emperor spoke to you about. Jetstream says as she walks in. "Now, girls." Janice swoops in, wrapping her arms around you. "Let's not pester our CO with too many questions, now. He's just been through a rather harrying ordeal.""Fine, fine." Red rolls her eyes. At that moment, you see the Ghost Hawk pull into view, here to take you home. The XF-19 also flies by and waggles its wings before turning towards the coast.Here, among you witches, all of your worries wash away. At least for now.>And that's it for tonight! Next week we'll get a peek at things from Bree's perspective!>Also, don't forget about Ace Combat on Friday and Cyberpunk Idols on Saturday!
>>37792083Thanks for the thread Merc.Who's Bree again?
>>37792083A fun thread Merc!Man, our witches are quite brutal.
>>37792083Thanks Merc.>>37792063>mulling about today's events as well as what Anderson had told you. Maybe they were connected somehow....?HAHAHAHAHAHAHA my paranoia seems hit the mark>>37792097Pierce's big sis.
>>37792097Pierce's big sister who we 1. Got a boyfriend.2. Got new strikers for her entire squadron despite witch bureaucracy being a bunch of cunts.
>>37792083Hey Merc has there ever been any risk of PJs getting ahead of mainline since you usually skip a few days every thread? Or does it not really matter since they are a world apart and you aren't really counting the date?
>>37792109When did Bree get a boyfriend?
>>37792246When we first went home.Remember Pierce's friend, that blacksmith who made Red's katana?We hook them when we got a chance.Daddy seems not really happy but eh.
>>37792138Once upon a time, he said that's why we don't get more PJW- because he doesn't want to jump ahead of 89, and my own pacing is measured in ice ages. I thought I might pick it up a bit, but if I do, it'll have to wait until after I move.
>>37792246WAAAYYYY back when we went home.
>>37792294God now I remember, its been so long.
>>37792298>I thought I might pick it up a bitPlease don't, we already miss things and skip over way too much as it is.
>>37792677> skip over way too much as it is.Yeah, like Wendy's birthday party, which Ghost said we'd see more of when we got back, and there's been nothing about it mentioned since.
>>37792760Wendy's birthday party is not a big deal.
>>37792861But it was promised we would get to see it through, like many many other events, that we have to leave as soon as things start, and then we skip forward a week and never see any more of those events, and its really annoying.
>>37792881It's only annoying to spergs. We've really not missed anything of import.
>>37792896Its not the import of it that matters anon, its like having a child and then just abandoning them except for main events like when they are old enough to go to school for the first time, then never seeing them again until its time to enroll them in high school, you would be a fucking atrocious parent.The downtime and preparation segments of the quest are equally as important as the action segments, and if you skimp on the downtime and just cut away in the middle of it, it leaves a sour taste and detracts from the quality of the quest.Ghost randomly skipping ahead a week in the middle of an event we've been waiting months to see happen is a big problem of his, and now he wants to speed his pacing up even more when its already got plenty of holes in it? That's a terrible idea.
>>37792918This is nothing like having a child. You are a socially maladjusted loon.
>>37792937Good job completely missing the point anon, after that I very much doubt you possess the qualifications to make such judgements on others when your reading comprehension is so poor.
>>37792918And so what should Ghost do to 'amend' it?Chronologically the party is already over when we chilling in Alaska prior our mission, and dedicating a thread solely for that party would still make some anon unsatisfied because they want Ghost to just going on.We got good part on party and that's good enough.
>>37793005He can't do anything to 'amend' it, but he should work to not keep skipping out on things like that.Ghost talked up the party and how it would be awesome at least a month before hand, and the end result of all that? We got 5 minutes of it before we were rudely interupted and timeskipped a week ahead to go do secret squirrel crap, all of which should have come after the party was finished.
>>37793035Because the party is unimportant and you are an angry waifushit
>>37793035To do secret squirrel crap, which i need to remind you we have to do if we want our RIO stays with us.Beside, we got a good time on party and its preparation before we leave for mission.If you want to complaint about this particular point, find another example.
>>37793117but muh birfdey party anon
