So yeah, thanks to some grueling TPP grinding, I decided to run a little CyberIdol related thread for old time's sake! So enjoy!For those newcomers, having previously read CIMQ is not STRICTLY necessary to play along in this thread, but it is highly suggested you read up on it! Just follow the archive link!Twitter: https://twitter.com/MercCommandArchive:http://suptg.thisisnotatrueending.com/archive.html?tags=Cyberpunk%20Idol%20Management%20QuestOther Quests: http://pastebin.com/zDJSf53zYou are ROCHELLE, an idol of Clover Entertainment....or, at least, you thought you were. Your memory was hazy as you woke up in a place you definitely knew you weren't supposed to be. Groaning, you slowly get up your feet, your prosthetic left hand grasping for you glasses-WAIT.You glance again at your left arm, and it was indeed mechanical, just like Melissa's. And the eypatch. Did you always have that? You're still wondering how the hell you got those when your radio earpiece crackles.(cont)
>>42362058"Boss? Boss! Can you hear me?!""Julie..?" You mumble."Oh good, you're alive!" Who you think is supposed to be one of your fellow idols sighs in relief. "Listen, you've got hostiles closing in on your position! You need to get out of there!""Wait, can you say again?" You ask, but you're only answered by a blast of static. Some kind of jamming? Now on the alert, you put your glasses back on and survey your surroundings. You seemed to be on the outskirts of a desolate, abandoned city. Destroyed and dilapidated houses lay all around, interspersed with large lawns and fields of dried and burnt grass. To the east, you can see dust plumes on the horizon. Telltale signs of approaching vehicles.>Stay put and hide in one of the houses. >See if any of the vehicles around you are working.>Try to flee on foot.>Other
>>42362088>Stay put and hide in one of the houses.
>>42362088>See if any of the vehicles around you are working.oh rochelle, you played too much MGS when you should have been training...
>>42362088>>Try to flee on foot.Producers can KILL.
>>42362088>See if any of the vehicles around you are working.
>>42362088>>See if any of the vehicles around you are working.
>>42362088>>Stay put and hide in one of the houses.MERC WHAT HAVE YOU DONE?
>>42362138I hope she didn't fall asleep while playing. Last thing you need is to sleep when shits going down.
>>42362247This is totally going to be a dream, because of derivative material.
Reminder that:>Niko's a ninja>Rin is a succubus>Cole is rapidly reaching god tier powers>Julie's Julies are real
>>42362308oh nostalgia my old friend.
>>42362088>Stay put and hide in one of the houses.Whoever's coming will notice a vehicle leaving and chase it.
>>42362088>See if any of the vehicles around you are working.>>42362308When did Rin become a succubus?
>>42362308So are they gonna be stand ins for MGS characters?Niko being Raiden, Cole as Volgin, and Rin as Psycho Mantis?>>42362419Valentines Day special. Those 20s....
>>42362419Remember the Valentine's Day episode?
>>42362461Not sure if Morgan has the bust size to pull off Sniper Wolf, but it would still be cute.
Oh how I missed CIMQ. Expect more art throughout the thread!
I still want to know what happened during Christmas?
>>42362461>>42362468Oh I get it.The other ones were literal, the succubus ones were not.On a unrelated question, how to start on the MGS universe?
>>42362461>>42362675Since it' MGSV, it's likely characters from that.Julie' either Ocelot or Miller (mission control)Morgan's most likely to be Quiet (even though she's on the slim side)
>>42362846> how to start on the MGS universe?Don't.If you must, stick with Revengeance.
>>42362088Well, if they already knew you were here, they were sure to sweep the surrounding area so hiding in the houses around here wasn't going to help. Running on foot wasn't a good idea, either, since the people pursing you were mounted in vehicles. They'd just run you down if they caught you.That meant having to find transport of your own. There were all sorts of derelict vehicles littered on the streets and parking lots all over. It was just a matter of which one to pick...>Standard sedan. A nice balance.>Pickup. Good cargo capability.>Motorcycle. Maximum speed and minimal size.>Truck. Raw power.>Other
>>42362895>Motorcycle. Maximum speed and minimal size.
>>42362895>>Motorcycle. Maximum speed and minimal size.I suppose we don't see any horse nearby? Well, i'll settle with motorcycle
>>42362895Throw the motercycle into the truckbed.
>>42362874>>42362846There's a legacy collection that's got most of the games on em- play in release order.There's also movie versions of em on youtube if you're 2pleb2play>>42362895>Motorcycle. Maximum speed and minimal size.
>>42362088>>42362058Shit, are we going to have to deal with Volgin Cole?Are we going to have to kill the Produce to become the Big Producer?>>42362846There are 2 sagas in the Metal Gear universe.Chronologically, the first is Big Boss' story, which starts with MGS3, and then goes Peace Walker, and Metal Gear Solid 5: The Phantom Pain, a Hideo Kojima Game, then the original Metal Gear.After that is Solid Snake's Bizarre Adventure, which starts with Metal Gear Solid, continues in MGS 2, and culminates in MGS4.Concurrently with SSBA is Raiden's story, which starts in MGS 2 and ends in REVENGENCE.Honestly, you should just emulate the PSX version of MGS and see if you actually like the way the series does storytelling.
>>42362846Well Rin, is very lewd. Flirts with the producer a bit. So there is that.
>>42362895>>Pickup. Good cargo capability.
>>42363077its jarring to compare Cyberpunk Rin with Deremas Rin. It just... feels weird. And hilarious.
>>42362895>>Motorcycle. Maximum speed and minimal size.>>42362705THANK YOU! You are so awesome!If you are willing, can you draw a "Where are they now?" of the CINQ idols? Like they all grow up? Even though its only been like a year since it ended?
>>42363134I feel like they could be the same person, just that Cyberpunk RIn is more smart about it in exchange for sudden teleportation
>>42363134Which quest is Deremas? Sorry, haven't been keeping up with Merc quests.
>>42362852So Morgan in nothing but a bikini. I can live with that.
>>42363291It's a doujin on the author's take of Idolmaster. Rin is a stalker, Kaede crushes on the Producer, and the rest of them are cute
>>42363291Deremas mean Idolm@ster cinderella girl.Rin, iirc, has her appearance based from an idol on deremas with same name.Anime version is on second cour now, but no drama or cyborg unfortunately.
>>42362895Your attention is immediately drawn to an overturned motorcycle at the side of the road. I quick, cursory glance at it suggested it was still in good enough shape to drive. Whether it actually COULD was a different matter entirely. You quickly dash over to it, trying to remember how to hotwire a vehicle.And almost as if it had read your mind, the index finger of your prosthetic hand immediately retracts to form a small wire cutter.Man, having an arm like this was INCREDIBLY useful. You're not too sure why Melissa keeps having an hangup over it.Focusing back on the task at hand, you get to work.>roll 1d20

>>42363528And just like that, the motorcycle hums to life, as if it had always been in working order. You hoist the back up straight and mount it before zooming off, in no particular direction other than away from the oncoming hostiles. You finally stop once you feel you're at a reasonably safe distance, taking shelter at an abandoned gas station. You try the radio again to try and raise Julie, but once again, you just get blank static."Damn." You mutter. However, now that you have some room to breathe, you get a better look at your surroundings. Where you were right now seemed to be an old suburb. Half abandoned, half burned down. You're not sure which came first, but it hardly mattered now. Farther away near the horizon, you could see a vaguely familiar skyline. You could swear it was the skyline of Old Detroit, before it was bulldozed over to make way for Delta City.But despite the history you learned, you were pretty sure Old Detroit was never THIS bad. Basically post-apocalyptic bad. With no intel and no direction, it looked like you had to chose your own path. >Head for the city.>Keep going west.>Find a vantage point to get an eye on your pursuers.>Other

Oh damn, CIMQ out of fucking nowhereBest idol coming through
>>42364372Why is Cole so best grill?
>>42363986Well, you suppose the best thing you could do now was to try and get some intel on the people pursuing you. Thankfully, you appeared to have a set of binoculars on you. You backtrack a little bit to where you're certain you'd be in visual range of where you first woke up. You then find a suitably high vantage point. A three story house. It had the height, and the reverse slope of the roof would help obscure you from enemy observers.After bit of climbing, you finally reach the roof. You focus your attention east and put up binoculars. Through them, you could see a trio of technicals and a single tank. The technicals were crewed by masked men in a mishmash of gear, and they all seemed to be taking orders from the three girls. Idols, no doubt.You had no idea how you knew that. You then notice that your binoculars had a mic function, as it started automatically feeding the audio it picked up directly into your headset."She was right here!" One of the men insists."Of course she WAS here. The problem is that she's not here RIGHT NOW! If she links up with the others, then we're ALL fucked!""What she means to say," Another one of the girls butts in. "Go and find her before she sends someone else to.""R-right away!" The man salutes and mounts a technical. The three technicals then veer off and split up in an obvious search pattern while the idol-crewed tank pivots around and heads back to the east.Interesting.>Your pursuers have split up. That means you can take them out piecemeal now.>The girls' escorts are gone. You can try to intercept them.>It's too dangerous to stick around. Let's get out of here.>Other

>>42364452Aside from her being the 1st girl that was so readily able to call us Dad?Probably the interaction between a young girl with attitude and a grizzled old guy (i.e. Ellie and Joel, etc.)
Oh maaaan I missed this more than I thought.I know we can't play it again, but I want to play it again just to make different choices, see what happens.
>>42364528man the M84A Magloader is fucking sexy, it's like if the XM-1 was actually produced and was restricted from being too sexy.

>>42364528>>It's too dangerous to stick around. Let's get out of here.Frankly, I missed this only reason I joined HEIST quest was to see the Idol girls.
>>42364876As soon as someone makes the art for it. I'm not a great programmer, but I know my way around a couple of engines that could do it...
>>42364876No, bro: season 2. New Producer, new girls, new city.More karaoke. More waifus. More blatantly recycled characters.
>>42364768>>42364876I can just imagine the various BAD ENDS. I think Cole would have lots of endings where she electrocutes Producer.
>>42365010>>waifusno no, its all daughterusJenner beated Lillith so early that it was a non-issue.
>>42365048Also, it wouldn't be a strict VN, I'd imagine. It'd have like some kinda turn-based XCOMish combat system....That'd be tougher, but I still think I could work it out (at least on a basic level) with time and help.
>>42365141So basically an XCOM mod?Replace soldiers with idols, replace world regions with districts, only face against replacement Exalt?
>>42365241Then add VN sequences between missions
>>42365241Or, y'know, we wait until XCOM2 comes out with dedicated modding support.Goddamn fucking 2016 delay
>>42365241Nah, I'm imagining it'd be primarily a VN that had the option of deploying on XCOM-lite missions. Specifically because I don't have the programming acumen to code serious XCOM shiz. I mostly do 3D art as a day thing. I could probably figure out the basics, but beyond that, nope.
>>42365309Hey, this is a good thing. Rushed releases are never a good thing.
>>42365317Well, this, and I'd personally prefer VN + a bit of X-COM as opposed to X-COM + a bit of VN. I'm actually not the biggest fan of X-COM in general. Nothing against it, just the gameplay style isn't my cuppa.

Rolled 1, 9, 14 = 24 (3d20)>>42364528You decide it was high time to get out of here. With the unknown hostiles doing a full blown search, it was only a matter of time until they found you if you stuck around. You quickly slide of the roof and climb back down to the ground floor. You can already hear the rumble of engines when you mount your bike and speed off west as fast as you could go. You keep going until your motorcycle begins to cough and sputter before rolling to a stop, completely dead.You check the gauges and see that the fuel tank was empty. No wonder a nice bike like this was abandoned. It was pretty much running on fumes already. With a sigh, you leave the bike on the side of the road and continue to make your way on foot when you hear something behind you...>Roll 1d20

>>42365627Niko can neither confirm nor deny she is, in fact, a ninja or comes from a family of them.
>>42365627>>42365698I wish we could have spent more time with Niko.Same with Sparky, too.
>>42365698I think she likes to keep it that way in order to have a 'normal' life..
>>42365752Yeah, it would've been nice.
>>42365433Falling back on your deeply embedded training, you immediately spin around and grab the outreached arm attempting to grab your shoulder and judo flip our assailant, sending her sailing over your head and slamming into the dirt in front of you. That's when you get a good look at her face."Julie?!" You gasp."Goddamn!" Julie coughs in surprise. "Looks like you haven't lost your edge at all, Boss! Guess that teaches me to try and sneak up on you!""Boss? Why are you calling me that?" You frown. "Where am I? What the hell is going on?""Damn, that crash must have really done a number on you!" Julie frowns. "No time to explain right now. It's dangerous out here."With that, Julie puts a hand to her mouth and does a loud whistle. Out of nowhere, a horse leaps out, its hooves clattering on the cracked pavement as it trots up to Julie, who effortlessly mounts the saddle. She then holds a hand out to pull you up as well."Hold on tight, Boss!" Julie grins. "This is gonna be a bumpy ride!"The horse then takes off a full gallop, nearly causing you to fall off and forcing you to wrap an arm around Julie to maintain stability. "Now now, there's time for that later!" Julie teases."Just tell me what's going on." You grumble. "Where are we? What happened to Clover? Where are the others?""Well..." Julie frowns. "You really don't remember?""No..." You shake your head, your memories still full of haze and inconsistencies."Well, first, the where. We're in Detroit. Well, what used to be Detroit, anyways. Now it's just a hive for the scum of the Earth. A lawless region in America's heartland. And the why? OCP is paying big bucks to mercenaries to "clean up" the place. I guess they got plans for it or something."Well, that made sense to you, somehow."And Clover?"(cont)
>>42366177"Ah." Julie shakes her head sadly. "Time and again Clover Studios was bought out by a foreign company. When it was a young upstart, it lost its native support: The bedrock for any up-and-coming idol group. Its family, its friends, its logo, its identity; everything was stolen from it. Afterwards, the company was broken apart. The other girls all split off their own way. The Producer? Well... we have no idea where he is."That left a sharp pain in your heart."And that arm and eye? Well, as one of Clover's top idols, you were also a top target. You lived, but the whole idol world still wants you dead. We're going to have to form that idol company of ours one more time. But first, we need to save the Producer. And he's in there somewhere."Julie then points to the horizon, directly at the corroded skyline of downtown Detroit."Well what do I do, then?" You blink."Well, you can't do this alone. You're gonna need some backup." Julie continues. "Fortunately, I got a few leads. Rin can provide some support to you. Problem is, she also went to find you and she hasn't checked back in. so she's MIA. I've also heard rumors of a certain sniper playing merry hell with all the idol bands stationed here.""Morgan?" You ask."Possibly." Julie nods. "Lastly, I heard one particular idol group is shipping in a highly advanced weapon today. If you can intercept that, it could give you a serious edge.""Hmmm." You pause to think."Get all three, get some, or ignore them all, it's your choice." Julie explains. "But remember, every second that passes is another second the Producer slips out of our fingers.""I know, I know." You sigh.>We need to find Rin.>Let's go investigate that sniper.>Let's intercept that weapon.>Other

>>42366204>>We need to find Rin.Julie looks older....We need her alive.
>>42366204>All of them, but start with Rin.
>>42366204"I think we need to find Rin, first." You say. "Got it." Julie nods. "We'll head over to her last point of contact."Juile then veers the horse to the left and heads at full gallop again. "So what's Rin been doing lately, anyways?" You ask."Rin's been doing her best trying to reform Clover again." Juile explains. "She formed a new idol company, Diamond Dice. However, it's pretty small, and we've been having trouble attracting idols to it, especially without you.""Without me?" You blink."Think about it, Boss." Juile laughs. "With your legend to attract idols and Rin's charisma to keep them there, you two would make a hell of recruiting team. That's why we can't do this without her.""I see." You nod. "Anyways, Rin took the helicopter to try and search for you from the air. She reported that she had to land here due to mechanical trouble."The horse then slides to a stop in what used to be a parking lot, now just cracked pavement and rusted pole lights. "But as you can see, no helicopter and no Rin." Juile points out. "If her radio wasn't working, then the first thing she would've done was return to base.""Damn." You frown. "Wonder where to start...""Should we split up? We can cover more ground that way." Julie suggests.>Yeah, let's do that.>No, we stick together.>Other
>>42366734>>No, we stick together.
>>42366734>Yeah, let's do that.

>>42366734>No, we stick together.Together FOREVER.
>>42366734Also, ask what happened to Cole?
>>42366734>Ask what has Julie been doing? I'm confused didn't the tomb girls were dating Producers relatives? and they don't know where the others are?
>>42366734>>No, we stick together.Battle-buddies!
>>42366734>No, we stick together.
>>42366734"No, we stick together." You assert. "We lost RIn already, no sense losing track of each other.""Good point." Julie nods and dismounts the horse. You quickly follow suit. "It looks like we'll have to find her the old fashioned way, then.""Meaning?""We follow the trail, of course." Julie grins as she points to a set of tracks in the dirt on the edge of the parking lot. However, instead of a regular set of tracks with too feet, all of these particular tracks were one foot and one round circle, like a peg. "Those are definitely Rin's." Juile nods. "I can't imagine any other one legged girl prancing around in a place like this.""One leg?" You blink."Oh right. You probably don't remember that, either." Juile shakes her head. "Rin was also caught up in the same attempt on your life. Well, both of your lives, actually. Like you, she didn't come out unscathed.""Oh..." You respond, a bit crestfallen."Well, in either case, it certainly got her fire going!" Julie grins. "I'm sure." You sigh. "What worries me are these other sets of tracks. She might have been followed.""Or she was following someone else." Julie suggests. "Either way, we have to hurry."The two of you follow the tracks to a dilapidated house. It looked dark and empty, but looks could be deceiving."You think she's holed up in there?" Juile asks, her hand already gripping her holstered revolver."Only one way to find out." You say as you put your hand on the door.>Roll 1d20

>>42367518It says it's pegged shaped. >>42367531>>42367557Honestly, I want to ask her what happened to her if we get the chance.

>>42367425The moment you open the door, you see the glint of the end of a gun barrel and you immediately pull back into cover as you hear the bark of a handgun, the bullets zipping through the open doorway. Juile draws her revolver and takes cover opposite of you. "You bastards thought you could take me alive, huh?!" You hear Rin shout from inside."Rin? It's us! We're friendly!" You call out.Suddenly, you hear an odd thumping sound, as Rin, minus and arm and a leg, comes stumbling out, supported by just a single crutch and peg leg. She's also now wearing a trench coat and beret, as well as a pair of sunglasses."R-Rochelle?" Rin stammers, her handgun falling from her hand only to be caught by Julie before it could hit the ground."In the flesh." You nod and nearly squeak in surprise when Rin lunges forward and hugs you as best a one armed girl can manage."It's about damn time!" Rin says happily."Ha, I guess." You grin, and notice something odd. "Rin, did something happen to your eyes?""Ah.. oh no, it's just the dust, that's all." Rin says, quickly taking her glasses off to rub her eyes. "So it looks like Julie found you.""More like she found me." Juile corrects "Anyways, what the hell happened to the helicopter?""Got stolen." Rin groans. "Rose Company goons.

>>42367892"What about the other people after you?" You ask. "We saw other tracks after yours.""Heh. They were obviously underestimating what a one armed, one leg idol can do, seeing as they only sent two guys." Rin points her thumb back at the house, where though the open door you could see two still pairs of booted feet. "Anyways, I won't be much use without the helicopter. I suggest we go retrieve it.""You're only saying that because that helicopter cost a fortune." Juile rolls her eyes. "Besides, we're on a time limit here.""Well of course it does!" Rin protests and turns to you. "It's your call, Boss. That helo can be a great tactical asset to us.">We'll get the helo back.>Let's find that sniper.>Let's steal that weapon.>Other

>>42367990Nah he didn't, as soon as I got wind of the thread I just went ham. CIMQ holds a special place for my drawfaggotry!

>>42367999Gotta go with the trips.
>>42368130There's still a few more pieces to see in on the way!
>>42367922>>Let's find that sniper.Well-trained soldiers are our biggest asset. The helo's good for maneuverability, but right now we need raw force before we can start thinking about force-multipliers.
>>42367922"Let's go find that sniper, then." You say. "Whatever you say, Boss." Rin sighs. "But that helicopter sure was expensive...""We can always get it back later." Julie pats RIn on the back. "But right now we need to try and get as much of the band together as we can!""What are you talking about?" Rin asks."We have reason to believe Morgan may be in the area." You explain."Really?" Rin blinks. "Well then let's go! Julie, where did you last hear she was at?""In a factory not far from here." Julie explains. "Basically, anybody who's gone there hasn't come back. Not to mention, plenty of cover and high ground for a sniper to take root. That's the most likely place she's at.""Then let's go." You say.Suffice to say, the three of you riding on one single horse was an incredibly awkward sight. Thankfully, nobody was around to see, and Rin was always irritatingly light, even with all of her limbs intact. After a few minutes of riding, you finally come up to the purported factory Morgan had taken up shop in. "Shouldn't we be more careful on our approach?" You ask cautiously."Nay, why would Morgan have any reason to shoot at us?" Julie laughs.>Roll 1d20

>>42368793Better to be paranoid when we've lost our memories and there's rival idol companies with hired PMC thugs out to kill us, than be too trusting and end up losing another limb.
>>42368783Fuck that ancient nonsense, we need us a Perentie or a 110 6x6, throw a couple FN MAGs on it and a 50 up top and go rip shit up.
>>42368783Sounds good to me.
>>42368730However, as you scan the factory, you catch the very faintest glint of light. The same kind of glint that comes off the glass of high grade optics.The kind mounted on top of sniper rifles."Get down!" You yell as you shove both Julie and Rin off of the horse and you leap off after them just seconds later as a bullet comes whizzing past. A split second later a loud CRACK echoes through the air. The three of you scrabble for cover. Julie takes refuge behind a cargo container, while Rin rolls under a truck and you go prone under a high earthen berm."Well, I guess that's not Morgan after all." Rin groans. "She'd never shoot at us.""I don't know. It's been a long time since we all split up. Maybe she didn't recognize us?" Julie wonders."Only one way to find out." You grunt.>Stealthily try to flank the sniper.>Make a dash for the factory.>Stand up and dare Morgan to shoot you.>Other

Rolled 6, 18, 9 = 33 (3d20)>>42369125"All right, I'm gonna try and flank her." You announce to Julie and Rin. "You two give me some cover fire. Distract her attention.""You got it!" Julie says as she whips out her revolver. Rin takes out her handgun as well and begins contributing her own storm of fire. You raise your head just a bit and watch as the glint of the scope swings to look at Julie. With the sniper's attention take away from you, you take the chance to dash across the road and dive into a dried up drainage ditch, which you proceed to crawl up. Thankfully, the ditch leads to a pipe that feeds directly into the factory, bypassing much of the open ground that would have made you fresh meant to that sniper. You then carefully push open the interior sewer grate and try to get your bearings. You hear another CRACK of a rifle, and your gaze shoots upwards. You were directly underneath her.You immediately begin scaling the maze of pipes, catwalks, and machinery, as quickly but as quietly as you can. Finally, you reach the top floor of the factor, where another CRACK and the clinking of an ejected shell casing indicated you were close. VERY close.>Roll 1d20

However, you hesitate when you see a VERY familiar set of white hair and blue eyes glaring at you, rifle pointed in your direction. She already knew you were coming!There was also the fact that was wearing practically nothing but a bikini.Before you could do anything else, her scoped mosin nagant rifle fires, knocking the gun straight out of your hands.

>>42370014You hold your prosthetic arm out, hoping that it has some sort of function to help you out of this. Surprisingly enough, your arm begins to hum loudly as three small dart like objects shoot out, grabbing Morgan and pulling her towards you. Morgan lets out a yelp as the sudden grab causes her to drop her rifle and she's propelled towards you.And your hand automatically clenches around one of Morgan's breasts.There is a long, awkward silence between the both of you."Did... did you get a little bigger?" You groan."Tovarisch?" Morgan blinks. "What are you doing here?""Why are you wearing those clothes?" You retort. "I almost didn't recognize you!""I didn't even recognize YOU!" Morgan fires back. "And what the hell is up with this arm, anyways?"That's when you remember your prosthetic hand is still groping Morgan and pull it away. Jesus, who the hell designed this thing?"Sorry about that." You apologize. "Anyways, what's with that er... getup?""It is very hot, okay?" Morgan says defensively. "I didn't want to rin my clothes with all the sweat.""Um, okay." You say, not quite convinced, and still unable to draw your gaze away from her chest. "Please stop that." Morgan grunts."Sorry, sorry." You snap back to reality. "Julie and Rin are with me, too. We're going to go rescue the Producer.""Really?" Morgan blinks. "The Producer is here?!""That's what I've been told, yes." You nod and hold your real hand out. "So what do you say? Are you with us?""Of course, Tovarisch." Morgan takes your hand. "Where do we go from here?">We're gonna get Rin's helicopter back.>We're gonna go get our Producer back.>Other

>>42370423>4 IdolsYeah, of which one of those is still pretty much a non-combatant. Rin's in no shape to be getting stuck into a firefight, even if she is part of our group.Which leaves us with a shocktrooper, a rifleman, and a sniper--not exactly the best lineup. We need to find some better kit and a couple more warm bodies.

Morgan nods.The two of you make your way down back to the ground floor, where Cole and Rin are waiting."Well I'll be damned." Rin blinks. "It really is her.""You owe me five bucks." Julie cackles. "Girls, let's focus." You snap. "Rin's helo. Where can it possibly be?""I know Rose has a base camp not far from here." Morgan says. "Perhaps they would have taken it there.""It's worth a shot." Julie nods. "Can we get there on foot?""Da, it is the preferred way." Morgan nods. "Follow me." Your group of now four head north, where Morgan leads you up a high hill overlooking a small camp. Sure enough, you can see a blackhawk gunship sitting on a makeshift helipad, surrounded by about eight or so soldiers."Those bastards. They're already getting ready to repaint it!" Rin seethes. "Let's take them down!""Now now, let's stay calm here." Julie cautions. "They outnumber us two to one. Maybe we should try doing this quietly?">Go in loud.>Go in quiet.>Other

>>42370934You try to make your way through the the camp. Darting from cover to cover. Fortunately, the guards didn't seem to be on alert, and were extremely lax in their procedures, which worked just fine for you. Hiding under a table here, darting behind a crate there, it was all a simple matter.Unfortunately, the last part was proving to be the most difficult. There were three guards around the landed helicopter. You were definitely going to have to take them out before taking off, but the problem was, you weren't sure if you could take all three at once, and most of all, do it silently.You take a quick glance back up the hill, where the others were waiting. Maybe now was the time for some help...>Try to take the helicopter yourself.>Call in some support fire.>Other
Dunno about Julie, but it seems Rin also got bigger up there ( jjudging from the MillerRin art)

>>42371168"Girls, I need a bit of help here." You whisper on your radio. "I need at least 2 of the guys near the helo taken out.""No problem!" Julie says."Acknowledged." Morgan mutters.Suddenly, there's two loud CRACKS, as one soldier goes down to Morgan's sniper bullet and another goes down to one of Julie's revolver shots. They were pretty good.The rest of the guards, including the third one, whip around to face the source of the gunfire, giving you a chance to break from your hiding spot and sprint for the vehicle. You use your hand to pull the third guard towards you, and your right hook knocks him right out. You then toss the unconscious guard away and hop into the helicopter, quickly powering it on. By the time the rest of the guards notice, you're already airborne and away from the action. You land a little bit of a ways away to pick up the others, where you cede the pilot to seat to Rin. How she can pilot a helicopter with just one leg and arm, you honestly have no damn clue."All right, I think we've got a big enough team together." Julie grins. "We're ready to go!" "So where are we headed?" Rin asks."That building right there!" Julie points to a dilapidated high rise. On top was a large skylight. "Me and the Boss will insert through there. Drop of Morgan on top of the neighboring building and you can standby for air support." "Got it" Rin nods. "In position over the LZ!"
>>42371393"Let's go, Boss!" Julie cackles as she grabs a rappel line and leaps out the door, firing her revolver a few times to break the skylight open."Crazy bitch." You grin as you grab your own rappel line and drop down. Both you and Julie land, weapons ready.But that wasn't needed at all, considering all of the soldiers here were already taken out.And there, sitting on top of a cheap folding chair placed precariously on top of a pile of dead guards was one very familiar figure."I was wondering when you would show up." Cole gives a devilish grin.TO BE CONTINUED>And that's it for tonight! This was originally supposed to be a oneshot, but I had so much fun with this thread I'm extending it to a two parter.
