Twitter: https://twitter.com/MercCommandArchive: http://suptg.thisisnotatrueending.com/archive.html?tags=Infinite+Stars+QuestOther Quests: http://pastebin.com/sYpqmWZgYou are Captain SAMANTHA WELLINGS, a newly minted captain of the Centauri Accord!Currently, you were back in the Armory with Tank to prep for the raid on the Confederate world of White Haven. Tank seemed to be standing at a much farther distance than usual. You kinda wondered what the reason was. Maybe it was something to do with last night?Regardless, you had to choose your loadout if you were going to accompany Tank's raiding force down to the surface. Well, you had to choose your armor again. As always, the heavy armor would give you better protection and was better suited for an up front battle and protracted conflicts. The light armor, however, would be more conducive to quick, lightning attacks and mobility, and would be a lot more stealthy...>Light>Heavy>Other
>>47141947>>LightWe tried out the Heavy already.
>>47141947>LightThis is still a sneaking mission, isn't it?
When we do get the opportunity to upgrade other systems of the ship, maybe we should install a few "Parasite spacecraft" to the hull of ship for manned or unmanned combat/scouting.
>>47141947>>Light>Something wrong tank?
>>47141947>LightSO if I wanted to read another of Merc's quests, what do people advise reading? Read Parawitches already.
>>47141947>LightHow's youre rpg going btw?
>>47141993That or we could always expand our armoury.
>>47141947>>Light>>47142049Cyberpunk Idol Management Quest. All hail the daughterus.
>>47142049The original Merc quest, Valkryian Mercs Quest.
>>47141997I'm starting to think that Tank might be an android that has greater freedoms than most other robots, and probably communicates in binary.
>>47141947Supporting >>47141997>>47142049Personally I'd say everything just because I read them all, but Valkyrian Mercs Quest 2 is probably a pass in all honesty.
>>47142147What if Tank is Jager?
>>47142147No matter what Tank is, he/she/it will be best Girl
>>47142049Ace Combat Quest, solely for drunk Karla pretending to be Pixy.
>>47142049Seconding Cyberidol. The others are good too, but Cyberidol's one of the better ones.
>>47142083>>47142107>>47142207Breddy much what they said. Lot of what he writes is pretty good, even VMQ2 if you can look past the shitstorm that was the waifu wars.
>>47142049>>47142207>>47142240Not to mention Armchair's HERE COMES THE SNOW and epic rolls.
>>47142055It's going along pretty well! Dealing with lots of spoopy shit and asshole Japanese!
>>47142267It all started with being surrounded by enemy jets and snowballed into cyberidols...
>>47142049VMQ for sure as even now it's one of Merc's best quests nice balance of dice and plot (and a reasonable system), and it's the main reason most of us are here reading his stuff today.
>>47142083One of the best parts of Cyberidols were the theories of what the hell Cole was. That and Niko decretly being a ninja and Rin being a Succubus.
>>47142420Rin wasn't a succubus, she was a temptress. She never actually did anything.
>>47142447She was able to charm people very well, something associated with succubi
>>47141947"I think I'll go with the light stuff this time." You say. Tank nods, but still keeps his distance. Apparently he was still worked up."What, you're not going to help me?" You chuckle.Tank shakes his head. You should know the process by this point. Heh, it was rare to see Tank being so worked up over something. You watch him as the armor attaches to your regular suit, integrating itself onto your body. Tank continues to keep his distance from you, looking away somewhat awkwardly. >It's best to leave Tank alone for now.>Tease Tank.>Assure him that kiss didn't mean anything.>Other
>>47142461>It's best to leave Tank alone for now.
>>47142461>>Assure him that kiss didn't mean anything.
>>47142461>>Tease Tank.Heh, heh , HEH
>>47142461>It's best to leave Tank alone for now.While I want to tease him, I think it's best to leave him alone
>>47142455She never did anything though. >>47142461>>Tease Tank.
>>47142461>>Tease Tank.We can apologize right after
>>47142461>Assure him that kiss didn't mean anything.>>47142049Build Fighters Quest was my favourite. Sequel never.
>>47142461>>OtherWow I didn't know you'd hate a kiss from me that badly....
>>47142461>>It's best to leave Tank alone for now.No bully!
>>47142461>>It's best to leave Tank alone for now.No need to push in that direction. give it more time for more natural growth in relationship.
>>47142461>Tease Tank.WE BULLY NOW
>It's best to leave Tank alone for now.
>>47142525>Build Fighters Quest was my favourite.It was the quest that made me interested in researching the older Gundam series, and getting a model for myself. I had no idea something ridiculously funny and awesome like the GM Juggler existed.
>>47142525I need to finish that quest. I really liked the opening scene at the FLGS.
>>47142107>The original Merc quest, Valkryian Mercs Quest.Fuck yes! It was the second Merc quest I read, but the best of them all in terms of originality, story, character, and sheer awesomeness of the dice rolls. That last nat-20 was completely unforgettable. I literally screamed out loud for real when that came up.
>>47142461>>It's best to leave Tank alone for now.
>>47142461>Tease Tank.TEASE BIG HUSBANDO
>>47142461You stay silent. It was probably best to leave Tank alone for now, especially right before a mission like this one. "You ARE ready, right?" You ask Tank.Tank nods, holding up his heavy plasma rifle and stubby plasma caster. Basically, his idea of a "light" loadout. A number of light combat bots powered up as well, to assist your infiltration. You take up your own loadout. Basically just a standard plasma carbine, in keeping with your intent on staying light and fast. Your light armor would have its own built in shields like the heavy armor, but they wouldn't be nearly as robust. At least you still had onboard power to boost them in necessary, though.SHIELD: 50/50ARMOR: 50/50POWER: 150/150"Captain, we're in position behind the nearest moon." Bradford announces. "We're ready to go whenever you are.">All right, let's go.>There's something I need to handle here first. (specify)
>>47142798>All right, let's go.
>>47142798>All right, let's go.Let's rock.>inb4 we do another Biotic Charge
>>47142798>>All right, let's go.
Anyone think someone is staring at our cute butt?
>>47142798"All right, let's go." You nod to Tank. "Bradford, get the shuttle ready.""On it, Captain." Bradford nods. "We've done our best to get the shuttle as stealthy as possible." Scott adds in over the comms. "Mostly just removed or covered up any that could give a possible sensor return. As long as you only keep only the critical systems running, you should be fine."Critical system such as...""Basically just engine at minimal power." Scott explains. "Right, right." You sigh. You, Tank, the rest of the robotic strike squad head down into the shuttle bay and file into the waiting shuttle. The pilot gives you an acknowledging look before closing the boarding ramp."So how do you want to do this, Captain?" The pilot asks. "I can drop you a few miles from the target site. It'll take a bit of walking to get there, but it's your best shot at avoiding detection. Or, I can do a hot insertion. It'll be a lot faster, but the 'hot' part is there for a reason...">Land a safe distance away.>A hot insertion sounds good.>Other
>>47143017I'm more concerned about the heating/cooling system is and how sweaty it can get.>>47143031>Land a safe distance away.Sneaking!
>>47143031>>Land a safe distance away.
>>47143031>A hot insertion sounds good.
>>47143017Everyone is>>47143031>Land a safe distance away.This is a sneaking mission
>>47143031>Land a safe distance away.We're doing this sneeki breeki like.
>Land a safe distance awayThen>Don't get caught doing it
>>47143031>Land a safe distance away.Commencing Virtuous Mission
>>47143065>>47143017How shapely is it?Flat? Small?
>>47143031>A hot insertion sounds good.I bet Sam has wanted Tank to do a hot insertion with her for a while.
>>47143031>Land a safe distance away.
>>47143031>>Land a safe distance away.Safe and sneaky is good. It's why we chose to do it this way to begin with.
>>47143140That's assuming Tank has the proper equipment
>>47143120Fit but perky.
>>47143154He will, if not Doc will make sure he get's it.
>>47143120It makes up for Sam having a flat deck
>>47143154He's just waiting to tear through that skintight suit.
>>47143214We're still not even sure Tank is actually a he.
>>47143180>>47143235>Tiny girl with smalltits but perfect assI AM SO HARD RIGHT NOW YOU HAVE NO IDEA
>>47143235formerly flat, just small now.
>>47143294>Small>Everybody mistakes them for mosquito bites
>>47143263I know right!
>>47143288Well okay. Putting a penis on a girl is perfectly fine with me.
>>47143031>Land a safe distance awayA-are you liking my quest so far?
>>47143120Take your pick
>>47143031"Put us down a safe distance from the facility." You inform the pilot. "I'm willing to walk a bit over getting shot at.""Roger that." The pilot nods, slightly relieved. "Adjusting course."The shuttle bay doors then slowly open, revealing the expanse of space as well as the desolate surface of the moon the Gullinbursti was hiding behind. The pilot throttles the shuttle up and it begins puttering along towards the planet. "Oh shit. Oooooooh shit." The pilot frowns."What's wrong?" You ask."That." The pilot points up and to the left. You squint your eyes. The shuttle's sensors were off, so the tactical overlay couldn't really highlight it, and you were surprised the pilot was even able to eyeball it. However, you own eyes adjust and you manage to see the faint outline of a Confederate corvette. "Can... can it see us?" You whisper, as if your voice might actually be heard."Don't know." The pilot grimaces."Can we change course to avoid it?" "Right now we're on a ballistic course to mimic orbital debris." The pilot informs you. "If we change course now, they'll notice."Tank then leans in with a suggestion, pointing back in the direction of the moon. Perhaps the Gullinbursti could distract its attention?>Just stay quiet and hope it passes.>Call Gullinbursti for assistance.>Other
>>47143328It's not bad so far! Just keep at it!
>>47143379>>Just stay quiet and hope it passes.
>>47143379>Just stay quiet and hope it passes.>>47143336I'd say her rear is petite
>>47143379>Just stay quiet and hope it passes.
>>47143379>>Just stay quiet and hope it passes.There's nothing to see here, we're just a rock... just a rock...
>>47143379>Just stay quiet and hope it passes>>47143395Thanks! Even though I said I wouldn't, I might bring in Abyssals at some point. A threeway conflict would be interseting. It might just be for the endboss I have planned though.
>>47141993We'd need pilots for them unless Sam is more hands on.
>>47143658We get Scott on them to create drone craft controlled by a simple AI
>>47143379You're all deathly quiet as the shuttle slowly passes under the corvette. It looks so close that you could reach up and touch it, but you know that in reality it's actually many kilometers away. Almost a speck in the distance. The seconds crawl by, but the corvette doesn't change course or fire weapons. It looks like it wasn't concerned at all by a small piece of apparent space debris.The pilot finally lets out a sigh of relief when the shuttle shudders, a sign that it has hit the atmosphere."All right, we should be safe now." The explains. "The atmosphere will deflect most orbital sensors, so we don't have to worry about their ships detecting us. Now we just have to avoid their ground based assets and we'll be dandy.""Thank god." You FINALLY exhale.Tank is just as stoic and resolute as ever. You look out the viewport, and just like the briefing, you could see the planet of White Haven lived up to its classification as an agri-world. On the ground, instead of a sea of water, it was a sea of crops. Corn, wheat, soy, all the common staples of human sustainment stretched from horizon to horizon, with only the odd farming settlement to break up the endless green. (cont)
>>47143789"All right, this is as close as I can get you to the facility without triggering their sensors." The pilot says as he sets down in the middle of a cornfield. "I'll stay here as long as I can. You need an extract, you just call.""Roger." You nod as you close your helmet and step out of the ramp.Outside, the planet seemed very... Earth-like. Dusty and rustic. Tank then follows you out and activates a holo display of the surrounding area. You could see your current position marked with a large red dot. Farther out, you could see a massive white dome, your target. Unfortunately, the area around the dome was cleared of all plant life, which would make it difficult to approach from the open. "I suppose you have an idea?" You ask Tank.Tank nods and points to three points of interest. A nearby settlement, a road, and a pipeline. Maybe setting up some kind of "accident" at the settlement could draw the security force away, opening a gap for you to exploit. Surveillance also seemed to indicate constant deliveries being made to the site by trucks, providing another avenue of entry. Finally, the pipeline led directly into the facility, and even if was being used, your suits were fully sealed...>Set up an "accident" at the settlement.>Hijack a truck.>Use the pipeline.>Other
>>47143803>>Use the pipeline.
>>47143803>Hijack a truck.
>>47143803>Use the pipeline.
>>47143803>>Use the pipeline
>>47143803>Use the pipeline.Gonna need a shower if it's sewage.
>>47143505Are you the one running Merc's roleplaying quest thing, or is it something else?
>Use the pipeline
>>47143866He's running an Arpeggio x Kancolle crossover quest
>>47143803>>Use the pipeline.>>47143891When is it run? I'd actually like to check it out.
>>47143891>He's running an Arpeggio x Kancolle crossover quest>>47143924>When is it run? I'd actually like to check it out.Same. Link plz?
>>47143938Thanks Boss.>>4714393814 seconds late haha
>>47143803"Well, the pipeline seems to be our best bet." You point to the long pipe on the map. "They literally won't see us coming, and it looks large enough to fit us."Tank nods and motions for the bots to follow. Your squad pushes its way through the forest of corn crops. Tank releases a small aerial drone which hovers in the air, giving you all a birds eye perspective since the corn was blocking all of your line of sight. "So, what do you think about agri-worlds?" You ask Tank.Tank shrugs. A bit dull, actually. Not really a lot of stuff on an agri-world worth fighting over, at least not for an individual infantryman. "Typical." You chuckle. And finally you reach the pipeline. There was nothing special about it. Just a bit tube of metal suspended above the ground, carrying whatever it was carrying to or from the facility. Tank climbs one of the maintenance access ladders and examines a hatch on the top. He indicates that the pipeline was a low pressure pipe, which was good for you. Made it easier to move through. Tank then pries the access hatch open, and immediately biohazard warnings on your HUD blare. "Tank, what exactly is in that pipe?" You mumble.Tank shrugs .Some kind of biowaste. Common byproduct from a agriculture lab like this one.You climb up the ladder and look down into the pipe, where you could see this horrid black/green sludge slowly flowing through the pipe."Biowaste, huh?" You ask.Tank nods."Isn't that basically, you know, shit?" Tank nods.>OH HELL NAW>Well at least these suits are sealed...>Other
>>47144062>>Well at least these suits are sealed...Thank god we didn't go helmetless. Speaking of which...which one is best?

>>47144196>>47144062Whelp, leave it to me to screw up a post.
>>47144172Scott is going to be pissed!
>>47144196>Tuesdays and Thursdays, starting at 3-4 PM EST and ending at 9-10 PM EST.Was just reading the first 2 threads, good stuff, even if it doesn't have much character interactions or intro/info-dumps yet. Was worried about the char selection and upgrade picks, but it seems most of the voters were sensible enough.Will be happy to join it when I can.
>>47144196That reminds me that I've seen Merc's twitter reply to you. I probably should've followed you.Fixing that now.
>>47144062Oh god this was so gross!"Uuuuuuuuugh." You groan. "I guess as Captain I gotta deal with shit all the time, right?"Tank shrugs. "It's just..." You glance at the river of stinky muck. Now you were VERY glad your suits were sealed...Tank then takes position behind you, wondering if you need any help.>Y-you can totally do this yourself!>Have Tank take the lead.>Other
>>47144318>>Y-you can totally do this yourself!

>>47144318>>Have Tank take the lead.
>>47144318>>Have Tank take the lead.Ugh... to avoid this shit, can't we just ride on tank instead?
talking about riding tank, at one point we need to request our own Mako AFV or maybe a Walker like one from BF 2142
>>47144496Not sure how many we can actually fit in the cargo hold. We already have a shuttle stored there, so I can only assume we have enough room for a few land/hover vehicles.
>>47144430He's not pissed, just nervous because we kissed him last thread.
>>47144318"I-I can do this!" You assert to Tank.Tank nods. Whatever you say.You pout at Tank, but remember that he can't see your facial expressions under your helmet. No way that you were going to open it up, though. If that shit in the pipe smelled as bad as it looked, you were afraid it would knock you right out."Oh god I'm gonna regret this..." You mumble as you drop your leg into the stream of "biowaste."Ohgodohgodohgod you can FEEL it hitting against your leg...!>Roll 1d20

>>47144539Yep, not that bad.
>>47144585thanks god for futurist lightly armored power armor
>>47144528"Ugggggh." You groan as you eventually plant both feet and dip your whole body into the stream of biowaste. Your powered arms immediately clamp to the sides of the pipe and start pulling you against the current. All the while, you're fighting to prevent yourself from gagging at the through of crawling through a literal river of shit. Your tactical display pinged, showing Tank and the combat bots following close behind. Meanwhile, your scout drone remained outside, surveying the pipe ahead of you. On your data feed, you could see that the pipe hung over a small set of buildings, which could provide ample cover if you cut your way out of the pipe. You could find an entry into the facility from that point. Or... you could just keep following the pipe into the facility itself, but the drone had no visual of where the pipe ultimately led. You were kind of afraid of what kind of infernal machine would be the source of all this biowaste...>Follow the pipe to its source.>Cut your way out.>Other
>>47144691>>Cut your way out.

>>47144691>>Follow the pipe to its source.Kinda suspicious that this is just simple shit
>>47144691>>Follow the pipe to its source.>>47144808That's very true. I kinda want to see what happens if we find out it's just really a waste-disposal pipe for sewage from the toilets or something.
>>47144691You keep crawling, working your power armor's full potential as it pulls you through the pipe against the tide. Finally, you reach past the point the aerial drone is able to track you, leaving everything up to this point in the dark.>Roll 1d20

>>47144946and we shall name him fifi and take him home, for the MASTER PLAN
>>47144869You keep pulling yourself along, until you hear a muffled sound coming from outside the pipe. "WARNING, FOREIGN OBSTRUCTION DETECTED. INITIATING EMERGENCY PURGE."Wait, did that mean-Suddenly, there's a massive pressure increase as you, Tank, and the combat bots are shot right out of the pipe into a holding tank, biowaste spattering everywhere as it filters away in built in drains in the floor.Up above, you can see what looks to be some kind of control or observation room, protected by a large pane of glass. Behind it, you can see regular industrial workers observing, and are obviously surprised to see a squad of full armed and armored combat bots and soldiers being shot out of the pipe they were trying to clear. Well shit.The combat bots, defaulting to their combat programming, immediately raise their weapons. Tank does, as well.>Open fire!>Tank, throw me!>Other
>>47145129>>Tank, throw me!

>>47145129>Open fire!Nobody tosses the captain!
>>47145226We're trying to distract them specifically because the Captain is not using Heavy Armor, and thus cannot afford to get caught in a direct gun-fight at the moment. With 150% Power to use however, I'd bet we can do some serious close-range work on these enemy soldiers to keep them disoriented and unable to fire on us.
>>47145129>OtherShoot to threaten, not to kill. These are civilian workers, aren't they .
>>47145320These aren't soldiers. They're regular civilian industrial workers.
>>47145320these are non-combatents, they should be cowed easily
>>47145129"Tank!" You bark. "Throw me!"Tank doesn't ask any questions and grabs you, swings you around in a full 360 degree arc to gain momentum, and lets go, throwing you up and into the observation room. You feel the glass shatter against your armor and you roll on the ground, immediately drawing your plasma carbine and pointing it at the terrified workers. "W-what do you want?!" One of them sputters.You know realize that you're still covered in biowaste, making this whole thing somewhat silly to a potential outside observer. >Interrogate them on the facility.>Herd them somewhere where they can't make trouble.>Tell them to get the fuck out of here.>Other

>>47145634There's a brief but tense moment as you stare down the four workers, in your fearsome, shit covered power armor. You can tell the smell is bothering them, but they're too terrified to really do anything about it or say anything. They wait for you to make the first move. "FOR GOD SAKES, MY TOILET HASNT BE FIXED IN 2 WEEKS, I CALLED AND GOT YOUR GODDAM ANSWERING MACHINE 3 TIMES! WHAT AM I PAYING MY TAXES FOR?!" You yell.The shocked looks the workers give each other achieve the intended effect. They think you're absolutely batshit crazy. "W-we'll do anything! Just don't hurt us!" One of the workers wails."WHERE'S YOUR GENE VAULT?!" You roar, your armor enhancing your voice both in volume and with a a bit of an electronic tinge.>Roll 1d20+5

>>47145875"W-w-w-we don't know where that is! It's not our department!" The apparent lead worker wails. "B-but the lab complex is at the center of the facility! If they're holding anything valuable, it's gonna be there!"Ugh, not as helpful as you hoped, but it was something.And you were still covered in shit.>No point in stealth at this stage, let's go full steam!>You should at least try to stay stealthy for now.>Other

>>47146247>TANK, CLEAN ME LIKE ONE OF YOU DAUGHTERUSYou mean slowly, carefully, and methodically with a soft sponge?! and cleaning the back, front, up, and down?!?! T-too lewd!!!
>>47146091"All right, you got somewhere we can clean this shit up?" You grunt as you motion to your own marred armor."Um, well." The lead worker points to what looks like some kind of shower facility. "That's typically used for decontamination purposes...""Good enough for me." You grunt as you head over to shower off your armor. At this point, Tank and the combat bots have made their way up to the control station, and handle the workers.You hit the ACTIVATE button and smile as cold water jets out from the gathered shower heads, rinsing off your dirtied armor. You watch as the water hits and rolls off of the curves in your armor, following the contours of your body. You then turn around to see Tank, apparently waiting for his turn. He's also still keeping his distance and apparently doing his best not to look at you.>C'mon Tank, there's room for two~.>Let Tank have his turn.>Leave him to sweat for a little while longer.>Other
>>47146323>C'mon Tank, there's room for two~.

Rolled 17 + 5 (1d20 + 5)>>47146323>>C'mon Tank, there's room for two~.Smile lewdly
I think he'd be a bit more comfortable sharing the decontamination process with us wearing a less formfitting, bulky armour.
>>47146323>Let Tank have his turn.
So guys, are we flirting with Tank or just acting like a naughty surrogate daughter?
>>47146323>>C'mon Tank, there's room for two~.It's time~ for some jolly(aw yeah...) cooperation! Huehuehue...
>>47146438Flirting, although it looks like samefags don't want either.
>>47146438Flirting of course
>>47146438We could flirt with him AS his surrogate daughter! Muahahahahaha!!!
>>47146465(shocked gasp) No!
>>47146438I hope he spanks his naughty daughter then.
>>47146496with a power glove/claw thingy!
>>47146483"Yes Daddy! lower! Clean me harder!"
>>47146323Reminder that while we may have a petite chest, we have nice legs, hips, and ass.
>>47146323"C'mon, Tank, there's room for two~." You say teasingly. "The water is fine!"Tank initially is hesitant, shaking his head rapidly."Consider that an order, solider." You continue.Tank's shoulders droop and he walks in, defeated, letting the water rinse off his own armor. "Never took a shower with another person, Tank?" You ask playfully.Tank shakes his head."Poor thing!" You chuckle.Tank then glares at you. Don't you still have a mission to complete?"All right, all right!" You concede with a laugh, slapping his armored rear with a CLANG.Tank then grabs the back collar of your armor and drags you out of the shower like you were a naughty cat. Time for work. Tank cautions.Fiiiiiiiiiine.>Wait for the bots to get cleaned up before proceeding.>No time. Head in with Tank first.>Other
>>47146569>No time. Head in with Tank first.

>>47146569>>No time. Head in with Tank first.gogogo, the others can catch up later.
>>47146569>>No time. Head in with Tank first."...well, think they can be used for diversion, with that smell, Tank?"
>>47146569>Wait for the bots to get cleaned up before proceeding.
ok guys, what was the mission again? Do we need to stay clean for some reason?
>>47146569"Come on, Tank, let's go!" You wave him forward. "We're on the clock here!" Tank nods and follows. Thankfully, there doesn't seem to be much security within the facility itself. In fact, the place seems very... grimy and worn down. You guess that being all the way out here, and having the limited resources of the Confederacy, even their labs were crushingly low tech. You and tank climb a slightly rusted stairwell, until you finally reach the surface. And up there, you immediately see the large white dome above you. Under the dome, you could see experimental crops being grown in plots, all centered around a central mobile lab module. You could see guards patrolling the perimeter of the dome, and there were scientists milling about and doing their work inside the module. You could probably sneak there...Tank looks at you for a plan. >Have Tank cause a distraction while you make a lighting raid on the lab.>Try to sneak into the lab while Tank stays behind as backup.>Other
>>47146717>Try to sneak into the lab while Tank stays behind as backup.

>>47146717>>Try to sneak into the lab while Tank stays behind as backup.This is still a sneaking mission Boss!
>>47146717"You stay here." You whisper to Tank. "I'll try to get in on my own. If it looks like there's trouble, well, you know what to do."Tank nods and stays put as you slowly creep forward, using the assorted experimental crops scattered around shield your approach from the sentries. They weren't expecting to find an enemy that's already infiltrated this far already. You can see the door leading into the lab module. It's so close, but there's a small patch of open ground between you and it...>Roll 1d20

>>47146866hey merc, what did you think about us going STEALTH ALL THE WAY BABY? Except we brought Tank, not Natasha.
>>47146879With a quick burst of speed from your powered legs, you quickly cover the gap before the sentries even realize you're there. You carefully grab the handle of the lab module door and open it with a soft hiss. None of the scientists inside seem to notice, all of them engrossed in their current projects. You then see a small, locked vault at the far end of the lab. If you were sneaky enough, you should be able to just sneak through the lab and crack open the vault yourself.Then again, you could just hold up the scientists and make things much easier on yourself.>By sneaky.>THIS IS A STICK UP.>Other

You know, you have to admit, Sam is actually surprisingly good in field missions. I wouldn't be surprised if she and her sister were actually Designer Babies with Gene Modifications.
Rolled 13 (1d20)>>47146948preemptive dice roll

>>47147118Considering she's good in both space and fieldwork, Sam's now basically biotic Solid Shepard Kirk

>>47147150or she got lucky, as if her actions depended on a roll of the dice
>>47147109You quietly crouch walk your way through the lab, thankful that the nerds working in here were waaaay to engrossed in their projects to realize you were even there. You crawl up to gene vault, and your HUD immediately tags the target vial. Fuck, the vault WASN'T EVEN LOCKED. You just slide the glass cover open, snatch the vial out from its resting place, and slide it into the small refrigerated carry pouch on your armor.You then quietly sneak out the way you came, the scientists still never realizing you were ever there. You get back to Tank's hiding place, where he gives you an enthusiastic thumbs up. Mission accomplished!Now you just needed an exit strategy. >Leave with a bang.>Silent Professional.>Other

I'm just sitting here wondering what the hell Elizabeth and Command are going to think when they receive reports of our...'accomplishments'.As >>47147154 said, we're like an unholy lovechild of Captain Kirk, Commander Shepard, and Solid Snake.
>>47147288but you have a chatlog.I demand you release them so we can read the shenanigans!
>>47147209And just like that, you and Tank managed to sneak out of a back maintenance passage, thanks to the help of the workers you had captured. You left them all behind, tied up. You didn't really need to bring them along, and they weren't part of your mission anyways. You all rendezvous with the shuttle and make your escape back to the Gullinbursti."I'm absolutely surprised." Elizabeth chuckles as she meets you in the shuttle bay. "I thought you would get into a fight or something, but the Confeds never even knew you were there! You have a knack for ground ops, Captain!""Ha, I suppose!" You laugh nervously. "And is it me or does your armor smell a bit... off?" Elizabeth wrinkles her nose."Oh, nothing a full decontamination and scrub down can't solve!" You laugh. Guess you had something useful for Amy, Elsa, and Lida to do...>And that's it for tonight! As always, next thread is next week. Don't forget KanColle on Friday!
