Welcome back, everyone, to the fifty-fifth installment of Mecha Space Pirate Quest. You already know who I am, and today you are still Admiral Roarke Starwind of the Iron Kestrels.Previous Threads: http://suptg.thisisnotatrueending.com/archive.html?tags=Mecha+Space+Pirate+Quest%2C+Collective+Game%2C+mechaMaster Pastebin: http://pastebin.com/sSHs0QmFUpgrade Menu: http://pastebin.com/QQQzkFZeList of Moves: http://pastebin.com/HSdyCe2yRogues' Gallery: http://pastebin.com/E9ZcDLfGLast time, you made some important announcements on air, but the interview isn't over yet."I have..." Gretchen says, getting out her PC and bringing up a list of bulletpoints, "...some questions submitted by our viewers."
>>49120702Welp, this should be interesting. Wonder if Jesus will throw something at us?
>>49120702This gonna be good
>>49120702"HAVE YOU SLEPT WITH MY WAIFU, GRETCHEN."
First things first. This poll will be running all night, let's see who you want to put as the de-facto head of your harem.http://www.strawpoll.me/11134115
>>49120807Going for democratic.We shall have the Parliament of Pirate Queens.
>>49120836>women>agreeing on things
>>49120836Keep in mind that this means you're giving Karen, Rosita, and Clemmy a vote. May Jove have mercy on your soul.
>>49120807NO HEADOUR HAREM WILL BE A DEMOCRACY!
Missed, last session, and I'm disappointing with anons. You lost the opportunity to insult Fairy over saying an attack was unprovoked when litterally everyone knows that Sol and Avalon had been shooting at each other for a while. Seriously, that bit was silly and dumb and everyone knows it.
>>49120887Fuck me, you win either way as you watch us squirm.
>>49120807and already a nest of samefagging.
>>49120807You know what, I'm gonna pick Sam, if Fatima wouldn't murder Lori then it would be her>>49120836Democracy won't work for this anon we need leadership in a harem, almost all of the girls are too biased or have rivalries to get anything done fairly. Theres a reason harem's usually have a head wife>>49120918Gotta play nice for now anon, when we form our kingdom we can release all the info we know on both sides
>>49120887Dear gods.. it'll end with Karen making weapons of mass destruction and getting them through thanks to Clemmy and one other wife.
>>49120954>You know what, I'm gonna pick Sam, if Fatima wouldn't murder Lori then it would be herFatima wouldn't murder Lori though. She would want to, but she's responsible.
>>49120909To be fair avalon made a fuck up either way and I am still down with the military more than I am with a bunch of green weenie sucking nutjobs.
>>49120996No, the Gate attack itself is was a clean attack on a military target.
>>49120987She would be heavily biased and would constantly cause problems with her you can't have that in a leadership position.>>49120958Thats the biggest problem, if Sam and Karen or Rosita and Clemmy vote as a block then problems are going to come up especially if they get another girl on their side and win a majority
>>49120954Meh, I'm good with any of the decisions on the poll really, just like the idea of our wives collaborating.
>>49120954>implying Sam wouldnt also be down with murderSpecial forces military pilots probably have a low opinion of paladins.
Anyone voting Democratic needs to see this. >>49120887
>>49120887But what if i wanted to have Clemmy be head waifu
>>49121045But Sam isn't from a religion who are the biggest Greenmen hates in history
>>49121048We've seen it, anon. It's gonna be fucking hilarious.RA RA DEMOCRACY!
>11 posters in thread>18 votes on the strawpollThis is why you don't use strawpoll
>>49121086and shes from a religion taught to follow the instructions of the husband.If we tell her please dont harm lori, she wont.
>>49121086I dont know man, I think everyone hates greenmen especially anyone in the military.
"Going by boards, here. I'll start with the ones from the official JNN boards, then the military boards, and finally...GYchan. First off...'blondes, brunettes, or redheads?'" Gretchen waggles her eyebrows at you.You grin, and answer without hesitation, "All of the above."She nods, "Next is 'How did someone as talented as you end up as a pirate?'"You hesitate for a moment, but your brother is no longer alive and you don't need to protect his job anymore, "My parents were low-level employees for a major Europan mech company." The only reason you don't specify Bucephalus is because, in your opinion, Bahamutcorp deserves the suspicion too, "They were killed and my brother was crippled, but it was covered up. I left home at fifteen to find independent work on California Station and ended up as one of the Iron Kestrels."She frowns, "That's a bit barebones, but maybe it's a subject for another day...or perhaps a biography! Alright, here's a third. 'Admiral, I've been a fan of yours for some time, but no matter how good I get at piloting, I just don't understand girls! Can you give me any tips?'" Gretchen smiles, "Aww. That's just a little bit adorable.">[What say?]
>>49121088...so the people voting for democracy are trolls. Good to know.
>>49121030Or worse, the ties between those two blocs cause them to never get along AND make Fatima the inevitable tiebreaker and therefore effective decision-maker anyway.
>>49121171No, I actually do think that a democratic harem would be the best way to make the 5 of them civil and sisterly. I just thought that you guys were the trolls and that the other answer was more convincing.
>>49121045I'm pretty sure Samantha actively talked out the plan that involves saving her with Roarke.
>>49121116Lurkers anon, but they should post in the thread to try and see how it matches up to the poll>>49121128I would like to hear Wong's opinion on this>>49121145>Well anonymous women are a lot like a fine mech, its takes understanding and a whole lot of elbow grease and sometimes it won't be anything but a burden and a pain in the ass. But you always know theres no machine you would rather be with
>>49121145> As with most things in life Confidence is key, Though an excellent soundtrack and perfect hair help
>>49121145"Women are people too. Get to know them, and treat them with respect. Having a silver tongue helps sure, but people tend to figure out what you really are after dealing with you for a while.">>49121202That and democracy's without effective protections for minority rights tend to suck horribly. Lori in a democratic regime is a terrible idea.
>>49121231>I would like to hear Wong's opinion on thisWe already have. This be a woman who thought that something extremely foul was afoot when her fiancee refused to bargain but still wanted to return to mars to fulfill her duty to her father.
>>49121145>"gotta have 10 cool, brah."
>>49121145Do you know a guy named Thunderbird?
>>49121145Listen to them.No matter what many men believe women don't speak some alien language that only other women understand, and nine times out of ten they actually tell you what they want.For that other time, intuition, luck, and a very good memory.Above all else remember, you're a man, act like one. Don't whine, don't quibble. Women want a man who takes care of his business, not a fool who can't manage his own affairs.Take care of yourself, become the man you always wanted to be, and I guarantee you won't have to find a woman, she'll find you.
Since Samantha obviously isn't gonna win, can we have a 2-option poll between democracy and fatima?
>>49121145Well, girls are like anyone else. Some differences in terms of hormones and chemistry, but like anyone it's a matter of respect, knowing your limits, and knowing theirs. Sometimes you need to say no, sometimes you need to push or back away. Of course, you have to know about your girl as well. Of course, that goes both ways, girls. Treat your partner well and desire to be treated well yourself.
>>49121145Be really hot and have a bitching mecha.
>>49121318Early in the thread Anon, she might pull a surprise win before it's all said and done.
>>49121318Don't think we need it anon, Democracy should have to beat both Sam and Fatima's votes>>49121330I'm thinking Shinji, Caesar already got his girl
>>49121330Ceasar has a girl and he got her with barely any effort on his point.
>>49121351>Democracy should have to beat both Sam and Fatima's votesThats not how a three way vote works thunder.
HERE IA AM!what are you thinking, why does any of you think that "Harem Democracy" could end well?We need a true competent leader...Vote for FATIMA!
>>49121358>Naomi seduced him to keep the son of Merrow from being able to kill the queen who looks like herClever girl>>49121390Because they're both voting for a single head instead of a democracy so it can be assumed both are against the democratic option, but its just a thought its not my poll to run
>>49121231Fatima personally believes (as you've already seen) in making her husband's life easier rather than harder. Consequently, as much as she might like to core the Anseis' torso with the Tarrasque's primary mega beam cannon and melt the cockpit to slag with the Countess still inside, doing that would cause problems for Roarke. Besides, she doesn't know that Roarke would prefer to give her back to Avalon, so to her it's just a matter of waiting until Lori is up in front of a Martian firing squad. It's not a difficult wait, because she is getting her special day at last and that's occupying much of her time.
>people voting for dictatorship instead of democracyAnd you call yourselves pirates!
>>49121256Avalonian hussies belong in the gulag.
>>49121492Were basically the King of the Kestrels anon, we don't have anyone vote in the crew. At best were an Oligarchy
>>49121472Do martian nobility respond to wedding invites off world.
>>49121351>>49121358It's really more like Naomi got Caesar. She's an assertive mechajock, he's a shy nerd. She even asked him out rather than the other way around.
>>49121435Yeah, that's why democracy with more than 2 options doesn't work, it is in fact mathematically proven that when you have more than 2 options the system just break.In fact... the relationship with them is ours, and none of them should have any power about how we interact with the others... Everything about this is just bonkers to me.but if a have to make a narrow choice... I guess i don't want the emotional, imprudent, impulsive gothic waifu in charge
>>49121516>we don't have anyone vote in the crewdidn't we give this whole big speech before we fought the countess that, yes, we're only admiral because our crew choose to follow us?
>>49121492Have you ever heard of democratic pirates?
>>49121472>You shrug, "It's tradition, isn't it? I have offers from the UJCIDF as well, and I'm sure her people will offer me something. She's an ace, a useful political tool, but not unbeatable. I don't think she'll make enough of a difference to consider it betrayal of the Solar System if I just hear what her allies can pay me for her return. If it was a Green Man, it would be a different matter, but the Countess is human, I don't want to just condemn her to a miserable death for a war she didn't start.">Fatima tries to scowl, but it doesn't have her usual intensity, and after a moment she just sighs happily and rests in your arms. "I will tell the Caliph that you are a good man with a sinful heart that requires wise counsel. I will tell him that even though she has taken lives, you insist on the honorable treatment of captives.I kinda read this as her being aware that we'd really rather she not die.
>>49121517They do when an Ahmad hand-writes the invitation and guarantees they won't be robbed this time.The only loose end there is Red Siren.
>>49121565Voting to accept a leader doesn't make it a democracy, it makes this either an elective monarchy, or a tribal set up
>>49121565Yeah but they didnt vote on it. You think people voted to be led by miles?
>>49121565They follow us because they want, and it implies respecting our decisions with no right of vote.Yeah, we are a monarchy, even in the sense of taking what we want by force of arms.
>>49121540Would it make more sense if I told you that if the harem deploys as a squad, Roarke would be in command and the head wife would effectively be his first officer?
>>49121601>>49121603>>49121606You can't deny, at least, that it's a bottom-up form of rulership instead of a top-down form.
>>49121606You do realize Roarke's existence is a democracy right?
>>49121611So the head wife is a type of second in comand in the ausence of Roarke?Thanks for your answer ^^Sttil voting Fatima.
>>49121635We can deny it though, who made the decision to go to Mars? How made the decision to attack the Cruise ship? How made the decision to save Suleiman?
>>49121635I'm pretty sure its 90% roarke just doing what he wants and everyone else going along with it because they dont have much choice in the matter.
>>49121690They get loot, food, and pussy so it ain't all bad
>>49121678>>49121690Everyone made the choice. Literally everyone who followed us did so because they chose too.If we wanted to go to Mars and Oda or someone else couldn't go for whatever reason, what would we have done? Forced them to go? Threatened them?
>>49121635Bottom? No, it's almost horizontal.Free association an all, the power that unite the iron kestrels come in the same amount from Roarke and from the rest, without any part they wouldn't be the same.
>>49121726Joining up with a kingdom because they are strong doesnt mean you have any impact in what they do. Plus when we first met Oda we beat him up and made him join us.
>>49121721That's basically the pirate benefits package right there in any case.Hell why else become a pirate if it wasn't for the loot, the food, or indeed, as we have seen many times before because of your dice, the pussy?
>>49121726Making a choice is not voting, having the power of choice doesn't make things a democracy.
>>49121783The grand adventure, the job stability, the freedom from space taxes?>>49121726We would have told him to go, first rule of being a pirate captain is don't look weak
>>49121758Why, with all that about the impetus of power coming equally from all individuals, that's sounding a lot like democracy, anon.>>49121762No. We beat up Oda, and he chose to follow us. If he had turned tail and fled like a saturday-morning badguy (which Oda technically is), none of us would have batted an eye.>>49121799if it's not a democracy, than its CERTAINLY not a dictatorship.
>>49121809Point takes, Space taxes are quite the bitch.
>>49121566Yes actually most pirate ships were democratic except for in battle where the captains word was law
>>49121828It's meta kouhai. We all vote cause it's a quest. duh.
You clear your throat, "Well, women are a lot like a fine mech, its takes understanding and a whole lot of elbow grease and sometimes it won't be anything but a burden and a pain in the ass. But you always know theres no machine you would rather be with. You respect your mech. You treat it right. Again, women are the same way." You sigh, "That's the part you already knew, I'm sure. Here's the part you want to hear. You've gotta have thunder.""Thunder?" Gretchen questions."Chutzpah, confidence. You need to put yourself out there and walk tall with the wind in your mane and your themesong playing." You snap your fingers, "Oh, and you wouldn't pilot your mech without reading the instruments, so you should listen to your woman too. Yeah." It's hard to articulate things that come naturally.Gretchen's lips quirk into a smirk, "Breaking news, women apparently very much like twenty-meter weapons platforms.""Well, they're both fun to be inside." You wink at her, and she bursts into gales of laughter along with the audience."Alright, next question, before someone else in the audience throws her underwear at you. What is the most romantic thing anyone has ever done for you?">[What say?]
>>49121857It doesn't help that the IRS have control over a fleet of mega heavy mechs that have Mv 0.
>>49121886Hehehe, epic meta.
>>49121845Its literally a dictatorship. One guy is in charge and if anyone doesn't like the decisions he makes they can fuck off because he is going to do them anyway. Its a largely benevolent dictatorship but still a dictatorship.
>>49121828The entire quest is about voting on actions.
>>49121875Granted historical pirates worked that way but we don't>>49121891Shit I don't remember anything romantic that the girls did, any ideas?
>>49121891"You're trying to get me in trouble, aren't you?"
>>49121894What they really have is the Wels-class. Or whatever the Martian equivalent is, a big honking battleship that could probably destroy a colony even if it doesn't break it in half the way the Avalon megaships do. This isn't quite gundam because the ships are actually useful.
>>49121909That's Anarchy, anon. "I'm gonna go do what I want, you all can go along with it if you want. Or not, I guess."
>>49121845Democracy normally consists of 50% +1 guy imposing their will on the rest. I disagree with you in that.I think it's more like a normal job contract, you either accept or reject it, either way you don't get to vote about how it should be.
>>49121891>"A girl painted my entire mech for me!"Let's take a crack at Miles.
>>49121952You can go along with it or you can fuck off out of my pirate group.
>>49121940Karen did make us some sweetass thunder gloves.If I remember right we used them on old fuckface back on mars to great effect.
>>49121891Clemmy and Sam abandoned their careers for usRed spoils us a lotKaren builds our mech advancementsFatima chose us over her peopleNo matter what we say though try to brown nose all the waifus
>>49121985What would we do if someone in our crew seriously fucks up in a battle, or pulls some shit we don't like? Maroon them? Make them walk the space plank?
>>49121891"Well that's a tough question Gretchen. Mainly because most of the romantic gestures I can think off the top of my head may or may not have been entirely legal. I'm going to go with Red Siren helping me out when Fairchild wrongly accused me of mass murder. Mainly because I believe you already know about that one."
>>49121891Honestly, in terms of romance it would be when they were there when I needed them most. Don't get me wrong, the big stuff is amazing, but the support of a loved one during a long trial or slog really helps and makes it worth it.
>>49122042Pertty good anon, backing
>>49122042Agreed.Seconding this one.
>>49122037>seriously fucks up in a battleAccidents happen, not everybody is invincible>pulls some shit we don't likeLike make us murderously angry? I guess we shoot them
>>49121998Anarchy according to google is the absence of government and absolute freedom of the individual, regarded as a political ideal. Except there is a government and we are it and if people dont follow our orders they risk getting kicked out of the group and becoming easy pickings for the military. A dictatorship is defined as a form of government where a group of countries (or Country) is ruled by one person or political entity. Sounds a whole fucking lot like us.
>>49122037We technically could do that, but i think there are some other interesting options.Like sending them to Clemmy for "Reeducation". LOLit really depends on what they have done
>>49121891"Well that's a tough one... I could talk about how a special someone left everything she knew so we could be together, or how a certain someone tried to take over my crew in memorandum when she thought I was gone, Or how someone came clean and let me in on a part of their life few others were privy to, or the little things like having a home cooked meal ready after a hard day, or just always being there. I guess what I'm saying is my life has a touch more romance than some but It's not just one thing, being together is probably the most meaningful gesture."
>>49122095Like steals money from us, or run during a battle
>>49122037I they fuck up probably not much. If they screw with us depending on how hard they do it it could be kicking them out or imprisoning them or just killing them.
>>49122042Backing this too.
>>49122099https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Anarcho-capitalismTry this, thanks me later.
>>49122037Have Oda lecture them?
>>49122099We don't have a government, though, we have a voluntary heirececal social structure that people have chosen to be a part of.And before you say "that's the exact same thing," it's not, because people are free to opt out of our "government" without any punishment.If you do that in the real world, you go to jail for tax evasion.
>>49122115>Or someone who painted my mecha for me...Backing this too.
>>49122174They don't stay with us if they aren't part of the crew though. They would have to leave and go live some place else
>>49122174>without any punishmentWell beyond the military being easily able to wreck their shit and losing access to our docking and repair facilities.
>>49122174Yeah, i agree, this is what i was trying to say, but you put it in words much better than me.
>>49122214>>49122174And probably losing their mechs and ships. If they decide to go against us suddenly they make them selves a good target for piracy.
>>49122197How is that a punishment?If you've decided to leave the crew because you don't like being an Iron kestrel anymore, then that's a lifestyle choice, not a punishment.>>49122214>>49122247Fine, then. It doesn't have any punisment that we mandate.The punishment for the military hounding them down is not something we do to people who disobey us.
>>49122214>Well beyond the military being easily able to wreck their shitNot always true man, if one just wants to leave the kestrels he can probably go with no harm, the exception is the case that we started something, like stealing from us or something, but that is another story.>and losing access to our docking and repair facilities.That is not a punishment, it's the loss of work privilages.
>>49122290I dont see how us deciding to steal all their shit not being a punishment.
>>49122039"Well that's a tough question Gretchen. Mainly because most of the romantic gestures I can think off the top of my head may or may not have been entirely legal. Honestly, in terms of romance it would be when they were there when I needed them most...which they've all done. Don't get me wrong, the big stuff is amazing...like building an invincible mech without ever expecting thanks...or leaving a military career for me...or fighting the Green Skulls alongside me despite being a hostage...or leading a raid on a UJCIDF transport ship to help clear my name, but the support of a loved one during a long trial or slog really helps and makes it worth it." You smile warmly. There's a muffled chorus of d'aaws from the audience, and some girl wings her bra at you with remarkable accuracy."I remember that last one!" Gretchen comments with a perky smile. "So here's a change of space. This one's pretty concise, 'Should Bucephalus Heavy Industries bring back the Thoroughbred MP for use against Avalon?'">[What say?]
>>49122317>it's the loss of work privilagesWhich we took away because they went against us. Taking something away because someone did something you dont like is a punishment.
>>49122322As long as they dont bring it back to use it against me.
>>49122319Nobody's losing their mechs.If it was a Kestrel mech, then it wasn't theirs in the first place.If it was their own mechs that they had before joining the Kestrels, then they get to keep it when/if they leave.
>>49122322"I work with a former employee of theirs who may be happy to see his work finally being acknowledged. But the only people who pilot thoroughbreds have been aces and heavily customized them. So it's hard to say for sure."
>>49122322"The Thoroughbred MP is a fine mecha frame. I'd say a conditional yes, noting both that some fine tuning to integrate new technology would be a good idea, and that I don't have access to their books to tell how cost effective mass production would be."
>>49122322>"Don't you know that Thoroughbreds are cursed? Wouldn't want any of that, no-sir-ee"
>>49122373Unless we decide to steal them because we are pirates and stealing mechs is what we do. No reason not to if they decide to go against us.
>>49122322I'd say no just so the guys that killed our parents don't get more powerful
>>49122247Really? Would Roarke just imeadiatly steal form anyone who leave the Kestrels?No, put they could become an target like everyone else.The Pirates ARE NOT an perfect ancap society because they are criminals even to the normal standarts of such society, because they do not respect propriety of others and live by the rule of might.... but still, the way they operate is very similar to some kind of voluntarist anarchist association.And taxes are theft too.
we need to mention that the avalonians are scared shitless at the visage of the throughbred so a mark 2 might have potential.
>>49122414Exactly. If we're stealing their shit, than we're doing it because we're pirates, not because they're 'traitors.'
>>49122450>Avalonians get over their fear because tons of Thoroughbred MPs are getting killed by them>decide they can take on their most hated enemies no problem if they can conquer the ghost of the great killer>Then they attack Roarke Starwind>Or they give Stern one
>>49122453But we are only stealing their shit because they betrayed us.>>49122439>Would Roarke just imeadiatly steal form anyone who leave the Kestrels?Yes? He's pretty much stolen from everyone else this far.
>>49122381>>49122403>>49122322These. Also "As long as I get payed for the marketing I've done."
>>49122322Well, having piloted one that has been heavily modified, I would say yes. It's a big boy that handles rougher than a harpy, but it's a good sturdy frame. The fact Bucheprest abandoned it over a curse and abandoning it's development crew is a insult to the effort they put into the machine. Of course, that doesn't mean they should try new things with this heavier class.Got to give a shout out to Cornelius and get his life work some respect.
>>49122348If you work for me, and i let you park your car in my garage because of it, and someday you decide to quit, i'm not "Punishing" you by not leting you continue to use my garage, it was just an advantage of the job, you are NOT "LOSING" something, i am NOt "TAKING AWAY" something, i just stop giving it to you the right to use something that is mine.
>>49122493This is fine. Works in our favour.Well either that or they make it a Limited Run Special Forces unit.
>>49122494No, we're stealing their shit because its there.This is, of course, assuming we'd steal their shit if we left. Frankly, I'd vote against it if it ever came up, and I doubt I'm the only one.
>>49122450And now I am picturing Thoroughbreds in Titan colors.
>>49122549But its only a target for theft because of their betrayal. Plus does roarke really seem like someone who wouldn't take offence to someone inside his group deciding to ignore orders? Imagine if a waifu was captured and someone didnt want to go because it was too dangerous. He would at least hold all their mechs ransom.
>>49122322>Learning from the past is all well and good, but relying on it will only lead to losing. They should be looking forward and striving to surpass the past not relying on it.
>>49120909Actually, they don't. At least no one in the Belt did. Hell, Doctor Clancy didn't even know what the Avalonian ship was, and he worked for SOUL.
>>49122494Steal from them when they are still aboard just because they quit?This would be stupid, we have to preserve the image of our enterprieses and they benefits of working for the Kestrels.
>>49122652That would make that show so much cooler
>>49122619We are still giant criminals. Everything we do is illegal.
>>49122619No we don't they left us fuck them, they aren't part of the family anymore and showing any weakness when dealing with your crew will make them try and walk all over you and put someone else as captain. Thats the entire speech we gave to Sam before we fought Lori. They can leave but they aren't leaving with a mech or any weapons.
>>49122610It's a target of our theft because it's not a friendly. It's not a friendly because it chose to left. That's not a punishment for leaving, it's a punishment for not being part of the Kestrels.Once again, no, this isn't the same thing, because people who left the Kestrels aren't "punished" worse than people who were never part of it.>Imagine if a waifu was captured and someone didnt want to go because it was too dangerous. He would at least hold all their mechs ransom.I certainly wouldn't vote for that. Besides, the whole thing would probably be framed more as Roarke asking his friends to go on a suicidal mission with him, rather than telling everyone to go and some people choosing not too.
>>49122711>That's not a punishment for leavingI'm sure the people who just had all their shit stolen when they decided to leave will see it that way.
>>49122684I'm not talking about if they steal form us or try to cross us, i was talking about if someone just try to leave of normally.Of course, if someone start something with us, they WILL pay.
>>49122751Why wouldn't we take their shit? We are pirates, they are unaffiliated with us and they have a bunch of good shit to steal. It was their stuff before but when they joined up with the kestrels it became the kestrels stuff and we arent just going to let them walk away with it.
>>49122750I'm sure you'd be feeling a whole lot of bullshit after being robbed.Would they be punished more than that one martian captain who we stole a ship from? Is the punishment for leaving worse than the punishment for not being part in the first place?If the answer is no, then the thing that's being punished isn't leaving; its being apart that's punished.
>>49122808That one martian captain got a pretty raw deal. He had his ship stolen and had to pay a ransom.
>>49122827A nice pirate is a poor pirate
"The frame is perfectly good, but I've never actually seen a completely factory-fresh Thoroughbred MP, just heavily customized ace models. Perhaps if they updated it with current technology? You'll have to forgive me, I'm a pilot, not an industrialist, so I don't know how cost-effective mass production would be. It makes for great ace customs, at least.""Mmm, it's interesting to note the little differences like the chest shape and shoulder ratio between it and Bahamutcorp's Bass Frame, sold to the UJCIDF for their SOUL squads." Gretchen remarks."Just to A, actually." You comment.She stares at you and blinks, "What do you mean and how do you know that?"You shrug, "I've seen Squad B's machines, they're all Bucephalus-engineered and at least one is a genuine Thoroughbred MP. Or rather was, since it's on board my ship now." You smile at the camera, hoping General Fairchild is watching this. "However, while I'm endorsing the suggestion of bringing it back...what were the executives at Bucephalus thinking when they canceled it? Why put a great mech and the technicians who worked on it out to pasture over superstitions that belong in the Terran dark ages? It's an insult." You shake your head sadly, "Bring it back, modernize it the way Bahamutcorp upgraded the Pumpkinseed into the Pumpkinseed II, and don't be an ass this time. Am I allowed to say that on the air, Gretchen?"She snickers, "I think so, but if it gets bleeped don't blame me." She flicks through the holographic list displayed above her PC, "Speaking of the Pumpkinseed II, here's one from the military forums. I remember this poster, he had a Palomino wearing boxer shorts and smoking a blunt as his avatar, so he might be a little biased...but he's not the only one curious. 'You had an easy time with the Pumpkinseed II series, do you think Bahamutcorp is just trying to gouge their customers by releasing a new model only a few years after putting out the Pumpkinseed?'">[What say?]
>>49122618This. I'm pretty sure the conflict was being covered up, wasn't it?
>>49122827Exactly. He got just as bad of a deal as someone would have gotten if they left the Kestrels and got their mech stolen.>>49122845>"It's Bahamutcorp. Of course they're trying to goughe their customers"Fuck the megacorps
>>49122893Thats assuming they are allowed to leave with them for them to be stolen later instead of just making them leave in a shuttle or something.
>>49122804Hmmm... so you say that was "implict on the contract"?Seeing things that way we are not stealing them, just keeping what became rightfully ours when they joined.So...We are not stealing from them '-'
>>49122845"No, it was a cash grab when they tried to pretend that the pirate upgrades to the Bluegrill didn't exist when they were pushing the Pumpkinseed 1. The Pumpkinseed 2 is a desperately needed upgrade to an overhyped mediocre mech."
>>49122845"Regardless of whether or not they're trying to gouge customers, the Pumpkinseed II is a significant step up from its predecessor, but you'd know all about that seeing as how you were in the middle of reviewing it wouldn't you say Gretchen?"
>>49122893>"It's Bahamutcorp. Of course they're trying to goughe their customers"this but still mention that the only thing that's done more damage to the kaiser than the pumpkin seed 2's was the damn paladin iirc, gotta give sad engineer lady some credit for making solid upgrade pack even if the corp behind her is shit.
>>49122932Maybe if we had contracts, but we dont because we are criminals.
>>49122827Technically his company paid for it.As for whether or not the Kestrels are a monarchy or some kind of demi-anarchy, that depends on whether you would view a tribe of barbarians ruled by a chief who is the strongest warrior as a primitive form of dictatorship or a sophisticated form of anarchy.
>>49122845"I'd have to agree with that assessment IF the Pumpkinseed II was a poor mech. It is a good upgrade over the base Pumpkinseed which is seeing fairly widespread use, so the various incremental upgrades to the unit do make sense.Then again of course, it is a Megacorp. They're going to charge as much as they can afford to get away with."Praise the upgrade kit. Because if more folks buy it, we can steal more pumpkinseed 2s instead of plain pumpkinseed 1s.
>>49122960Who? You mean the person that we haven't never met and couldn't give a shit about?
>>49122845>"I think they were trying to gouge their customers releasing the first Pumpkinseed. You've piloted the Pumpkinseed II yourself, Gretchen; you know how it handles. I'm sure you'll agree with me when I say that it's definitely more than a workable machine, but it makes you wonder what they were thinking releasing the first one.">"Besides, it's literally a megacorp's job to gouge their customers."
>>49122970I think Conan counts more as a dictator.
>>49122920We already talked about it here >>49122373So, instead, I'm gonna give a different answer. We're not gonna steal from them because they're our friends. If they wanna go off to parts unknown and do their own thing, that's cool.
>>49123037The only members who are really our friends are our inner circle. You can't treat employees like friends especially when your all criminals
>>49123057Why not? Honor among thieves.
>>49122965We probably do have some kind of contract, at least to inform what working for the kestrels is all about, what you do and what you are expected to receive.A little burocracy do more good than it hurts.
>>49123057also this does not inspire loyalty.
>>49123077Considering we have fought most of the thieves we have met before the other captains joined up I think we can cross them out.
>>49123029well yeah, he was a king
>>49123096We inspire loyalty through personal power more than anything else.
>>49123096We treat them fairly, keep them fed, and pay them when they work with us. Its when they leave that we treat them like everyone else. Honestly thats getting off lightly, look at how people are treated if they try and leave a gang
>>49122845Hard to say. Compared to the original Pumpkin seed, this one put up more of a fight so it's not that bad a machine. More of a bluegill man myself, but it shows some potential if they kept working on it. I certainly don't mind scooping them up.
>>49123133And now we are a king in all but name.
>>49123113No, we fought the Green Skulls. We allied ourselves with Oda, Red Siren, Flint, and that Harlock copy.The Green Skulls, by the way, are an excellent example of why honor among thieves is important. When you're a pirate, and you go after other pirates to thin the competition, then all the pirates are gonna gang up on you and wreck your shit. Just like what we did.
>>49123173They allied themselves with us anon, big difference. And thining out rivals isn't a bad thing they lost because they didn't finish the job and left one angry son of a bitch alive
>>49123134And thats not feasible in the long run. Roarke has mentioned starting his own side. He'll have to start considering long term ramifications as to how the side is run, laws, policies. Otherwise when we die, the whole area turns into a warzone. Which is not something he would want.>>49123144I disagree. What that means is that they'll just leave quietly or as fast as they can, shooting everything in sight.We are not trying to be a gang now, we are now attempting to be a faction, proper. And in its current configuration, likely to become a militia made out of the various pirate fleets that come together for mutual protection.
>>49123168No. King implies a government. We are a Barbarian Chieftain leading a coalition of Barbarian Tribes who have banded together for mutual gain.
>>49123173What did I say? Before the other captains joined up is what I said. Oda tried to take us over, the only pirate we didnt fight was Red Siren.
>>49123224And were turning that into a kingdom after the tournament, we pretty much told the rest of the captains that
>>49123217Being the strongest worked fine for plenty of people. Seeing as our whole business is fighting people and taking their shit, or becoming popular enough to sell merch by fighting people and taking their shit being strong is probably a good thing.
>>49123325And thats fine and workable for now but its not a long term solution unless you want wars to be fought everytime succession happens.
>>49123209>They allied themselves with us anon, big differenceWhen you say that there's a big difference, but don't explain what it is, all you do is get people to ask the obvious question and extend the conversation. Like now. What big difference?>thining out rivals isn't a bad thingNo, fighting over territory isn't a bad thing. Undercutting the competition isn't a bad thing. Being too big for you boots isn't (always) a bad thing.Killing to the last man all your enemies, one by one, is a very bad thing. That's how defensive alliances are born.>>49123225We didn't fight the other ones, we avoided them, which seems to be pretty normal among criminal enterprises who don't step on eachoter's territory.. Oda's really the odd one out.
Hum... why not making it a "Free territory" like Jupiter was? But we will be the owner of everything. This way, if some other power/mini-faction/colony wants to ally with they can expect an alliance without becoming "JUPITER TERRITORY PAY OUR TAXES HUURRR DUURRR" or something.
>>49123347They view us as the leader and came to us to work with us, not us going to them for their help
"Bahamutcorp, a Jovian megacorp, trying to gouge their customers? When has that ever happened?" You infuse as much sarcasm as you can into those words, "Honestly, it was a gouge when Bahamutcorp ignored the well-known existing fixes for the Bluegill to drive up demand for the first Pumpkinseed. The Pumpkinseed II is a significant step up from its predecessor, but you'd know all about that seeing as you were in the middle of reviewing it, wouldn't you say?""I would." She remarks, then adds smugly, "Even if I was interrupted.""Nonsense, it was a very successful field test. It did more damage to my mech than anything but a Paladin of Avalon. I look at it like this, the Pumpkinseed was built to be a moderately more sturdy Bluegill for pirate-hunting. Was it successful in this role? Debatable, but the Pumpkinseed II was built to meet more onerous demands on a UJCIDF mainline mech, including conflict with Avalon. There's a world of difference between a Harpy and one of the Avalonian machines, and it takes a different kind of mech to fight a war.""It's adorable." Gretchen comments, "I know that isn't a technical assessment, but I just think the shape of the head is darling.""I...wouldn't really be a good judge of that, I was too busy with the plasma swords and lances." You remark, laughing awkwardly."Mono-eye mechs are pure sex, Roarke!" She insists."I'm not even going to comment on such an easy opportunity for an immature joke." You reply with dignity."Oh, come on. I made it easy for you." She fakes a sigh, "Alright, final assessment...did they pull it off?""Yes. Definitely yes. Like I said, it's quite a challenge, but the Pumpkinseed II is an excellent little machine, a much-needed modernization." You smile and lean against the back of the couch. It's nice to talk a little shop about mecha.[Continued]
>>49123380If they come to work WITH us, that does not give us the right to confiscate their ships and mechs if they decide to part ways.
>>49123347>We didn't fight the other ones, we avoided themWhy can you not read? I said we have fought most of the thieves we have met before the other captains joined up.The ones we met were oda the green skulls and red siren and two out of three of those we fought. Did I say we went out looking for a fight with all the other pirates?
>>49123340Just have the strongest one lead, its simple.
>>49123348This way we can get somekinf of peace in the long term by being an alternative to the Planets states who slave you into being part of them...
>>49123380and why is this relevant to the conversation, or just relevant in general?
>>49123173To be fair, the Green Skulls severely underestimated the dicerolling power of a sexually satisfied Christmas Cake Colonel and the apparent White Base of Wels-class battleships.
>>49123442Plus at this point there probably arent even enough unaffiliated pirates out there to make an alliance against us. We already have most of the important groups.
>>49123397>RightsWere pirates anon the only right is the right or conquest
>>49123397Deciding to let us be their leader does though.
Can you drop the stupid argument?
Just a reminder guys, those other crews aren't Kestrels. The only reason they give a rats ass about us is because their bosses tell them to. We're gonna have to fix that.
>>49123625Well we are pretty much forming our own faction, so we can phrase it as the end of the pirates of the belt and the rise of the new kingdom
>>49123393Irinias' life got more complicated.
>>49123637>not being a pirate kingdom
There's one thing that you're obligated to point out as a pilot, even if it might not be the wisest thing to point out as a pirate, "Although...the one thing that bothered me about that line is this. How are you supposed to catch a Harpy with one of them in a flat-out chase? You either have to rely on circumstance, resign yourself to driving them off without pursuit, or hope you can shoot them down from range."Gretchen nods, "We've discussed this on the show once or twice before. I think the consensus among the Maximum Thrusters girls...and they're our REAL techheads...was the last option. However, I've heard through the grapevine that Bahamutcorp might be working on an add-on or supplemental vehicle to increase their speed.""Really? That's fantastic, how soon can I steal some?" You grin, and the audience laughs.Gretchen laughs too, shaking her head, "Can you believe this guy, folks? Incorrigible! By the way, I noticed mecha with beam saber and cloaking capabilities among your fleet...the technology for that wouldn't have come from the former military members you're marrying, would it?" She's friendly and cute, but Gretchen Colburn can throw a hard curveball when she wants to."No, of course not. The First Mate of the Green Skulls possessed a cloaking mech that I disassembled with the Kaiser, we reproduced the technology from that. It's unfortunate, but we lack the resources for a stealth mech on par with what the UJCIDF could field with enough funding. As for the beam sabers, my Second Mate found a prototype at a SOUL facility on Suleiman 1 and our technicians were able to reproduce it and make copies. Honest theft, not betrayal." You answer without hesitation, "I did steal parts from SOUL B's S-Slayer, but still...honest theft.""Of course. They're nice girls. Speaking of them, what do they think of your stance on the war between the Solar System League and Avalon? What IS your stance, succinctly? Are you on the side of the SSL?"[What say?]
>>49123637So... what now? We stop stealing and declares war to Mars and Jupiter?
>>49123469Pretty much. Small groups trying shit will end badly for them since they will lack support.>>49123645Ours as well. We just mentioned two mechs that could do well from our competition. Chances are we'll be seeing more medium weights in the future.
>>49123637Sure.A kingdom where all their stuff they got as a pirate belongs to us. Sure they'll join.
>>49123663No were still pirates I kind of meant the end of the bands and the forming of a new one basically >>49123656
>>49123625The bulk of your forces are sworn members of the Iron Kestrels, actually. You have two smaller bands that kept their old identities, plus Red Siren, but all of the unaffiliated pirates, Roarke fans, Suleiman survivors, and smaller crews that joined up have earned their shades and fly the hawk banner.
>>49123715If It's not obvious, I want our response to just be us playing that song from our PC
>>49123694What are their options if they dont? Keep stealing shit where they are? Shit that will very soon end up conquering? Move closer to the other military powers and try and steal stuff from around there?
>>49123645Wait what why? We were nice, weren't we?
>>49123660>I've said it before and I'll say it again I'm on my own side more then anything, doesn't mean I'm against doing work if the pay is rightCan't let them think were going to make our own faction
>>49123660"Honestly, its a fight between an agressive empire that seems to want to dominate all of known space, and a fairly nice group of people who are led by a mass murder with a new PR team. My personal opinion is that I hope this "Lady" of theirs has a fatal stroke so we can sign a peace treaty."
>>49123742>the Stonemen suddenly break out into song>they strangely only sing protest songs as a joke
>>49123743>Shit that will very soon end up conquering?That we will end up conquering is what I meant. If they dont join up they will pretty much end up our enemies anyway due to the nature of their business.
>>49123767I'd believe it.
>>49123660For the most part? Neutral though leaning to our family at home. If they do try to pull another set of travesties like the green men, I'll be ready to smack them, take their stuff, then smack them again. Though, if any group tries to become like the Green Skulls and try to follow in their footsteps, they WILL get beaten into scrap first chance I take.
>>49123637that won't change a damn thing. We need to ensure that the crews follow us first and foremost, not the Captains. Which means we might have to off the captains.
>>49123743Some pirates are nomadic.Also, I seriously dont think we can control the entire belt. We'll have our consolidated areas and there'll be other areas where the SSL forces are weak since theres a war going on and it doesnt need to be right next door to us.
>>49123765>a fairly nice group of peopleI dont know man, what about those pod things they make you swallow?
>>49123767>the only songs the Stonemen actually know are war protest and actual songs by men in warzonesWhen will we hear the Space-Sea-Shanties, gentlemen?
>>49123797Nah killing your aces only weakens yourself. We need to settle them as dukes of colonies and us as the king
>>49123811Uh they don't?
>>49123797The Captains are our nakama. Denied.
>>49123797The masses are scrubs, the captains are the ones that really matter. Shit we could probably take on half of them ourselves before we get our big upgrade.
>>49123838AVALONIAN SHILL SPOTTED!
>>49123838Thats not what the last dude we were playing as thought.
>>49123797Are you high
>>49123838Fuck the Avalonians
>>49123660"At the end of the day I'm on the side of me and mine first and foremost."
>>49123819What do you do with a Fuckin' Greenman,What do you do with a Fuckin' Greenman,What do you do with a Fuckin' Greenman early in the mornin'?
Since we promised Athena that we would do something fun with her, How about we take her with us for a day of training with Master Asia?
>>49123992>Blast him with a laser til he's space dust!>Blast him with a laser til he's space dust!>Blast him with a laser til he's space dust, early in the morning!
>>49124046way hey and up she rises
>>49123901Wait, thunder, think.We don't know the lady yet, everything we know about the avalonians until now is that they have and very diferent culture and they belive the lady because they do not know about what the green men did...i really think we have to at least maitain some distrust at the jupiter propaganda before going all PURGING at them.
>>49123852One of them is our nakama, another is our wife. the Other two are two dudes we just met yesterday. One of them literally said that he would beat our ass if we weren't up to his standards.
>>49124062>Not purging the GreenmenSomeone didn't grow up in sol
"There's a little song about war and what it's good for..." You get out your PC.Gretchen chuckles, and rolls her eyes, "War, huh, what is it good for? I know, but I don't want it to suck up all of our question time.""That's fair." You shrug, "I've said it before, I'll say it again. I'm the Admiral of the Iron Kestrels. I care about my employees, my friends, and my loved ones. Anyone who threatens them, I will crush. My wives have their own opinions, colored by their backgrounds, and while I listen to and respect those opinions I'm the one responsible for the course the Kestrels set, so I have to make the final choices myself."She smiles, "That's pretty macho, I kinda like it. So...just a few more questions to go." She clears her throat, "''Do you ever feel like you just aren't taking your life in the right direction? That you're wasting your talents on petty crimes instead of doing something meaningful to improve the state of the galaxy? Why don't you find the courage to understand others and realize that you should live for more than yourself? If you just joined hands with the other residents of the Solar System, don't you think you would be happier?'" She makes a face, "How did that get in there? You can answer if you want, but the next one is more interesting. 'They say that flat chests are justice, and cowtits are freedom, which do you prefer?' Cowtits!? That...that's really not how I would describe the sort of chest a...a healthy girl should have.">[What say?]
>>49123743Steal our shit, because we would be the weakest power and tearing up large crews is good for business
>>49124062You mean everyones propaganda. Nobody likes them, they are basically green space hitler genocides and all.
...And Lori, Four and kirito seems like good people until now, maybe the lady is indeed diferent form the others of her species.Before i forget... Do Lori know that the Old Solar System Govern doesn't exist anymore? By what she said, i think they really believe that the same order that exterminated the greenman is still around... and are doing most of this for vengeance.
>>49123870He's going to run afoul of Amos "If you're green he'll get real mean" Wedge.Amos "Bringing the fight to every Knight" Wedge.Amos "Shooting plasma into your pollen miasma" Wedge.
>>49124102"A man should never really have to choose between freedom and justice."
>>49124110I am sure that will go well for them.
>>49124102"It's a hard choice because I like both big tits and DFC. I have a preference towards petite girls though."
>>49124102Look straight at the camera, and say this very clearly "Shut the fuck up, Jesus.".
>>49124102To Jesus's question; Just laugh.to the chest question>I've already chosen both and a good range in between with minimal compromises.
>>49124133Kirito let his crew blow up a colony by accident.
>>49124084What if the Lady really was just right all along?
>>49124102>First question, just know I know who you are and I want you to know that I am laughing at you>As for the second question I always felt that you should look for justice through freedom
>>49124128People change, and the lady probably was not the ULTIMATE MASTERMIND of them.So no, no SPACE HITLER this time.
>>49124102>First off, No Keith, I don't.>Secondly any man who feels he must choose either Freedom of Justice does not deserve either.
>>49124102>"I know you wrote that, Jesus. I AM fighting for something meaningful, that improves the state of the galaxy: mankind's right to live free."
>>49124186Those chaps look trustworthy.
>>49124186Still to dangerous to let live. For all we know she is cloning up a batch of her homeboys right now.
>>49124206You can always trust a snappy dresser, just look at those sleek uniforms
>>49124201Seconding this.>>49124197And this too.
I'm just not buying that the Green Lady can't make bioshits. She's just keeping it secret to play an angle and SURPRISE COCKBAGS! her enemies. Or replace her mooky-ass current army with Greenmen once she has built enough of them.
>>49124133The Great Sidereal War (I had to go look the name up) is odd because it's sort of two wars. First, the Green Men curbstomping the Confederation, which was extrasolar and actually treated the solar system like shit too IIRC. The next part of the war was the solar system planets inventing mecha and taking over the fight, eventually beating the Greenies and forming the SSL. So yes, the Jovian and Martian governments who finally beat the Greenies are still around.
>>49124223From what Duke told us she can't, but then again that was hearsay, and from one of her indoctrinated followers besides.
>>49124232Oh, sorry, forgot i was in GYchan.
>>49124275I think they basically one week battled the confederation, then the rest of Sol teamed up and beat them in
>>49124102Jesus is that you? Have you been sending your poetry again? You need to work on your purple prose.As for the second question, big or small, the ass is important as well.
Damn were moving quick tonight, were already close to bump limit
>>49124102>"Big or small breasts? Well, as I always say, more than a mouthful is a waste."
>>49124335we've reached the petty bullshit phase of the quest, where we spend hours arguing about stupid shit that has nothing to do with the current thread. thread.
>>49124335I'm new here, how does it works?...And is it because of me?
>>49124385We've had stupider arguments anon>Sam isn't a boy>That scry and die one
"For the first question...or series of questions, rather." You turn and look slowly at the camera, shaking your head, "I know who you are, and I want you to know that I am laughing at you as I fight for mankind's right to live free." You grin cheekily, "As for the REAL question, a man should never have to choose between freedom and justice. Both are essential to a balanced life." You nod sagaciously.Gretchen chuckles, "You really could not take a side on that without having some girl murder you, could you?""I'd never sleep safely again." You remark earnestly. "Also, there's the matter of the butt, which is extremely important...""True. Alright, one more question. 'If you could give any one piece of advice to young pilots going into life-or-death battle, what would it be?'">[What say?]
>>49124385It's a sign that people care. The future of the belt matters to us, that's a good thing.
>>49124436Heads up, eyes open and have a reason to come home.
>>49124434>scry and dieThat was just one Anon not understanding that 'scrying' with a large but extremely frail cruiser with no significant weapons and no way to escape prior to calling in the cavalry until its warp drive recharges is a really, really suicidal idea.
>>49124436>When you walk into battle you better enjoy the thrill of the fight and dedicate yourself entirely to the moment at hand. You can't be thinking of what happens if you lose or what you have waiting for you back home, all you need to think about is how to destroy the person across from you
>>49124436"Theres that spiel about something to fight for, something to die for. But honestly, you go into a fight. Its not to die for your cause, its to kill the poor SOB on the other side. Remember what you're fighting for. Remember those who care for you and want you to come back. And do your damnest not to disappoint them."
>>49124434That's a classic.Never Forget....And SAM IS A DUDE!*runs*please don't hate
>>49124515Samantha is a princess and the eventual mother of our children.
>>49124436Survive. It sounds simple, but thats the most important part of it. You fight, you learn, you get back home alive. Glory means little if you can't enjoy it yourself and heroic sacrifices put a burden on those remaining. Live and fight another day, even if you have to put together a machine in a asteroid field to do it.
Is the strawpoll bullshit?
>>49124537She'll have a hard time with that.
>>49124579Apparently invetro is how its going to work
>>49124485that, and you could do the same job with 50 stealth mechs. less, if you got them inside the hanger.
>>49124537>>49124587eh I prefer sam as the godmother to all roarkes kids from the rest of the group, she'd be good at it I think, besides even if the avalonians have the tech to make the right changes... there's too much stigma attached to their bio stuff to make it worth it imo.
Instead of arguing over weather Sam's a boy or a girl, can we instead just agree that Roarke is a hot-blooded disciple of Slaanesh who will fuck anything that moves?
>>49124662As long as it pretends to be a girl.
>>49124648unless we don't have to get avalonian bio shit for a functional swap? does the federation have that kind of tech?
>>49124674I can agree with that.
"Heads up, eyes open and have a reason to come home." You shake your head, "I know you all want to hear me tell you to punch your enemies in half, but what you really need to hear is this. Survive. It sounds simple, doesn't it, but it's the most important thing. Stay alert, stay in the fight, and have a reason to get back to your bay when you're done."Gretchen whistles, "The words of a true pro who's spat in the grim reaper's eye. Better listen, kids."The rest of the interview is just pleasant chatting, you talking a little about the differences between piloting the Kaiser versus piloting a Harpy Custom, and Gretchen commenting intelligently on the differences between Jovian and Lunar design. Eventually, time is up, and she shakes your hand with a warm smile, leaning close to whisper, "Use the back door so your fangirls don't ambush you on your way out. The only way I could have had more fun today was if I conducted the interview sitting in your lap. Thanks for doing this for me." She smiles at you, before glancing self-consciously at the cameras, "We'll be right back after these messages, interviewing some of Admiral Starwind's subordinates about the events on Mars."[Continued in half an hour, giving Wong some time to get a drink, eat a sandwich, and dig through his notes]
>>49124662That depends only on us.>>49124640>see my pic
>>49124750Give her a kiss on the cheek before we leave just for to send the onlooking audience into a frenzy.
>>49124766You weren't here for that diceroll, but someone rolled randomly to see what order Roarke's kids were being born in, and it was something like twins for Karen, a kid for Samantha, and then a kid for Fatima. Who am I to oppose fate?
>>49124750God I hope they interview Oda
>>49124684hey, did we asked sam already if thats is what HIM wants?
>>49124797Then later it was Fatima having almost 3 in a row and one for Sam and Karen
>>49124793We're not Fairchild.
>>49124824Clemmy is getting one because I refuse to deny her a child named Dio.
>>49124845I'm almost certain that if Sam had a child before them they wouldn't stop until they were certain they were pregnant
>>49124824>>49124845What about lori.
have a warmouth
Rolled 2, 1, 6, 4, 3, 2 = 18 (6d6)>>49124855She wasn't there when we rolled by since we have them all now lets see how the dice feel1.Karen2.Rosita3.Sam4.Fatima5.Clemmy6.Lori
>>49124852That's the power of love at work.
>>49124875Jesus Christ, Sammy, calm down.
>>49124797Respectful suggestion for one of karens kids>is a ladies man>is a man child>is actually a good pilot invincible>is unkillable
>>49124797Honestly, I can see tech being used to make an artificial egg or classic adoption when we find a Jovian super soldier baby factory or something.
>>49124845Respectful suggestion for one of Rosita's kids
>>49124898And of course I forgot to delete invincible afterwards.
>>49124799make it happen
So, lets get this straight:Are we gonna marry Lori?If so, count me in.
>>49124950I want the ohoho but after that thats enough waifus already
>>4912489800 had the best characters, but I liked 08th too. Have a potential Samspawn.
>>49124950if we can get her past her indoctrination.
>>49124898As long as were talking about possible kidsSam: Banagahar, KamilleRosita: Gem, MitsuruClemmy: Dio,ElaineFatima: Ed (Bebop)Lori: Seras, IntegraKaren: Joseph, Chibodee
>>49124898Pretty sure one of Karen's is Not!Banagher
>>49124920The only reason I have not 100% locked Asuka in as a Rositaspawn is the existence of Simon Biggs on Qu'lir and the fact that he's a Shinji.
>>49125011Shes got like three more open spaces so its all good.
>>49124971C'mon, we know already who is the truly son of Sam.
>>49125017Asuka's the paladin pilot isnt she
>>49124971Actually, Shiro might be a Karenspawn instead based on eye color.>>49124987Another good Clemmy option is Katejina.
>>49124950I'm against it. Fuck that stuck up bitch.
>>49124987>Dio Starwind, aka Dio Brando, Captain of the Holy Divers.
>>49125034Can't be, the Paladin pilot is actually calm and graceful, not a bloodthirsty berserker.Probably Kaworu really
>>49125017Let's be fair. Simon would do well with a nice Kaworu.
>>49124987>Joseph, Chibodeethat Chibodee better be named Junior.
>>49124950Yes, after we get that stick out of her ass... and put ours in
>>49124987Ingrid 0 would be perfect for Lori's daughter... but a i really want to met with her before, we are the lolis of this galaxy!? QU'LIR!? WHY WONG!?WHYYYYYY!?
>>49125030Accepted because Kamille a best.>>49125034There are so many more horrifying women I could and did pick than Asuka to pilot That Monstrous Thing.
>>49125097As soon as Kamille is born we're going to think he's a girl aren't we?
>>49125097Its mari isnt it
>>49125128Much worse than Mari.
>>49125091Where*Too much feelings,can't cope with autism...Protect this smile Anons.
>>49125071Best route for the guy actually.It's the only romantic intrest he ever had who was actually interested in him as a person and not a punching bag/fuck toy.Or that wasn't a clone of his mother or his mother figure/big sister.It's kinda sad that his best emotional match was a time looping humanoid abomination, but I suppose it could be worse.
>>49125123I can just picture it now..'My, what a healthy young girl. I think I'll call her Kamile, like that tea you enjoy.''Ahhhhhhhhhhh!''Oh ho, she has a healthy set of lungs and a good punch. Just like her father!'
>>49125143Can't be Mana. Maybe Nobody Dies Rei? >>49125160I support this. Kaworu and Shinji was always my favorite NGE couple. It actually had compassion, affection, and positive emotion, instead of an emotionally crippled tsundere and a girl who was just starting to experience emotions beyond those for her master, and don't even get me started on that can of worms that is Misato's many, many issues. Mainly abandonment issues.
>>49125161I can see that happening...Poor Kamille Starwind
>>49125143...That cube thing?
>>49125200Noriko for our shinji expy
>>49125167>>49125199>>49125209Not from Evangelion, I went with someone from a creepier and more Lovecraftian bit of media....on Anon's suggestion many threads ago.
>>49125238RahXephon?Saya no Uta?
So if Fatima has a son, should he be Rashid, or Sinbad?
>>49125209Don't talk that way about best girl
>>49125238OH NOESIT'S NYARUKO!
>>49125254Only mech anime i watched regularly was build fighters and Zoids, circumstance of my childhood and curfews.As such I dont actually know them besides "That cube"
>>49125238Please don't tell me it's Demonbane
>>49125247>>49125262Both incorrect, but if I narrowed it down too much you'd spot her instantly. The temptation to reveal my secrets does beckon sweetly, but I shall not hint further at her identity.
>>49125282Ramiel aka "FUCK YOU, FUCK YOUR MECHA, AND FUCK YOUR MOUNTAIN TOO."https://youtu.be/JH0UaKazSVc?t=41s
>>49125305>Lovecraftian mediaMy gut tells me it isn't from an anime
>>49125305Jesus, I know that feel. I'm running an intrigue based game for a friend of mine, where I rolled randomly to see which NPCs could be trusted... somehow, he managed to gain the almost loyalty of the Imperiatrix of the local space-orc empire. He has no idea, beyond that the space-orcs (Zitran) he has met all seem very interested in keeping any promises they make to him, and acting in the interest of him and his.
>>49125305So, Wong, what do you think about best loli?
>>49125238Does she feel a love that crushes like a mace?
>>49125338There is a entire cthullutech series to get mechs from... but I feel using tabletop characters in a different tabletop may get... weird.Or its at least really hard to recognize.
>>49125344almost undying loyalty* I typed too fast.
>>49125344Man, i'm a fan of your Paladin work, can you give me an autograph?
>>49125350To hell with you ya crazy broad! You and your demonic giant babies and horrible sequel!
>>49125350shit, she sure as hell fits the Paladins M.O
>>49125350Kill it.KILL IT NOW.I REFUSE TO DEAL WITH GIANT BABIES AGAIN.
>>49125344Is there a real reason why or does the dice gods simply provide a divine will that says "This dude is cool"
>>49125344Make the orc females want his babbies
>>49125372teenage Mana and Caim deserved a better game. Or at least a game without Nowe.
>>49125387giant babies... uh... do I even want to know?
>>49125461Speak not the watchers.Drakengard
>>49125481>Drakengardoh god not that game. Such a weird fucking plot.
>>49125461If you ever want to sleep again, no, no you don't.If you really want to see how far this twisted rabbit hole goes I recommend you read the Let's play of Drakengard by The Dark Id.You have been warned.
>>49125369If you mean the Paladin S/G (the armored heavy with MV-1), then my autograph is just a big stamp that says [VERNIERS]. >>49125397It's the dice gods. See, it started with twenty named NPCs. The cast has grown since then, but that's what it started at. I then rolled 1d20 to determine how many were loyal to the death, and another to determine how many wanted to fuck him over for various reasons. The rest were just in it for their own interests and could be swayed either way. I won't spoil the results in case he reads this (which I doubt for various reasons), but one of the *very few* Loyal NPCs was the Imperiatrix, grand leader of the Zitran Hedgemony. I have no idea how to justify it in game, and no idea how to eventually reveal it, but I'm working on it. They're a martial society of space orcs, and she's a ruffian who grew up in a ghetto, joined the military, and ended up smashing her way through the ranks until they elected her supreme badass. He's a soft little dude who is the prince of a empire known for diplomacy and being friends with everyone. I'm trying not to be stereotypical and have her want the Royal D.
>>49125481>>49125501Oh I have the first one, but I got stuck on this one old wyrm boss thing iirc and then a game i'd been anticipating came out and I stopped playing, I had a feeling things were gonna get fucking weird though.
>>49125505Sounds like you went to heavy on the RNG.If it was like a civilization quest and the numbers were just which allies actually were truely invested in the alliance it would be one thing but this seems like just some random chick whose special to a army.
>>49125505>I'm trying not to be stereotypical and have her want the Royal D.Less sex and more 'This small squishy thing is adorable. I want to hug it and squeeze it. I will help him find a mate and she shall be strong and protect him.Then I'll see the cute squishies that such a union will make and I shall be their godmother.It will be /Glorious/."
>>49125561Probably went too far, yeah. But the guy knows me, and he knows the sort of choices I make, so I wanted it to be random instead of 'he fucking knows exactly who I'm going to have be loyal'. I'm predictable sometimes. Most of the time.
>>49125501Eh it wasn't that bad its just giant babies with teeth, this scene from Genocyber was worse
>>49125553Well, if I recall, it had Mr Taro at the wheel, and he did Neir as well. Also the guy is a liiiiiiittle bit eccentric. Just a little.
>>49125599the old animes were brutal as fuck
>>49125597That... that's hilarious. I'll consider that. People in power DO tend to be pretty eccentric, especially in space opera settings.
You feel lighter walking home. More free. With all of the bullshit that gets pushed on you by people wanting you to move in one direction or another for the sake of their politics, it's refreshing to get the record straight, state your position plainly, and let THEM squirm around adapting to it. You're wondering what to do with the rest of your day when you get a message on your PC.Karen: 'Come see. The blueprints are done, and I found the wrench with the yellow handle that you like. I'm waiting. <3'Before you know it, you're back on the Rhinehawk, once again feeling as small as an action figure in the tremendous new bay. Some thngs, though, never change. The whir of her autowrench is a sound as familiar to you as the nightsong of insects is to planet-dwellers. The faint smell of machine oil and hot metal, the gleam of light off the edge of her glasses as she turns to give you a shy, sidelong smile, all of it is like coming home after a long day at work. Fame is great, but this is piracy at its core, a homemade mech and trust in your mechanic."I'm not much good at wedding presents." She says, hesitantly, climbing down from the disassembled Kaiser arm servo whose elbow she's industriously restructuring. She smiles, her wrench dangling loosely from one hand as she makes her way over to you, carefully picking her way through the minefield of metallic bits and nanotube gubbins towards you. She slips one oil-stained hand into the front pocket of her coveralls, pulls out her PC, and brings up a three-dimensional and incredibly detailed blueprint of a mech...[Continued]
>>49125622Its so nice to look at though, the use of colors and the motion are just so good
>>49125505Hmmmm...What about she wanting to have him in her's harem? Or she wanting his help because she learned that are some things that cannot be obtained by force alone and thinking that he is the best one to teach her the secrets of having a silver tongue?(Isn't him the prince of the diplomacy empire who is friends of everyone?)
>>49125618I loved Nier, it made me cry but I love it still and the soundtracks gorgeous, there's a second one coming out too, based around robots this time it seems.
Oh god, we're about to hit 400 replies
>>49125618Let's be fair here, if I had an Enil mask I'd wear it too. What a great little dude he was.
>>49125647Yea they did. Wasn't Gundam Victory fucking depressing as shit and brutal?
>>49125683He was the biggest bro in the game. Was a nice guy, cursed with crazy eyes of petrification, then got eaten and turned into a freak, then had his body explode later on while still being a pretty nice guy.And the sequel will have mechs that look like him.
>>49125683Yeeeeessss.... say he might make for decent Clemmy spawn, at least his pre moon skeleton form anyway.
http://www.strawpoll.me/11134115/rFatima Confirmed?Will this Episode be an 2 partner?
>>49125704From what I've heard, haven't gotten around to it yet. Next on my docket though is the Geist movies, any opinions on them anons? Is it anywhere near as gory as Genocyber?

>>491257621 is Ok. theme songs pretty catchy 2 is not as good as 1.
>>49125793Is it as catchy as Fairy Dreaming
>>49125769Ok, we need a badass anti-beam cloak to hide all the new stuff.
>>49125769You have no idea how frustrating it is to not know what this means.Though for name shouldn't we just name it Black Ogre? I mean its already called that.
>>49125839The red barons name wasn't actually the red baron.
>>49125839We strong and can punch strong and fastI like The Siegfried for its name, keeping with the German naming for the Irish/Aussi's mech
>>49125802https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ffl4HDp-_S4decide for yourself, 80's Man
>>49125769Let's see.. more accurate, stronger fists that can do 10 k a punch, a large active shield, thicker armor, speed is still good, a weight category lower than what it was before, and nicer sensors to command a fleet with.Could go with Knuckle Kaiser Schwartzeisen, which means black iron.
>>49125904Not 80s enough my man, now this is an 80s songhttps://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ZTidn2dBYbY
>>49125885I am still sticking with the Knuckle Kaiser name no matter what. It's still the Kaiser after all, it just has beefier arms and more knuckle to kaiser with.
>>49125769only one active shield? >>49125885 The B.B
>>49125945Thunder...Never change,man.Never change.
"I know it's...it's not fancy, but it's a direct improvement in everything you're good at. I stole the arm structure from the S-Slayer drones and altered it for increased efficiency. See, the shape of the folding elbow effectively lengthens the arm, and by replacing the twin thruster configuation on the elbows with a triple-thruster panpipe, we've increased the maximum effectiveness of your punches by at least 15% at minimum...and that's discounting some of the more advanced technology I've squeezed in there. Smarter and more HMIS-responsive targeting locks for the arms, in particular, but...see how the left shield mount is thicker, here? It's automated, now, with a crude AI that can detect incoming attacks and automatically interject the shield. This isn't just a patchwork upgrade job, either. No, we're taking the Kaiser apart, you and me, and we're rebuilding it fresh. As our own mech, something created between you and me." She slips her hand into yours, leaning against your chest and disrupting the holographic field, smiling up at you as her fingers interlace with yours and she plants a kiss on your lips. Her fingers are oily, but you don't mind.She pulls away, and hands you your wrench, the big one with the yellow handle, "While we work, there's another project I've been spending some time on. Just a little...dream I've had."[Continued]
>>49125910Knuckle Kaiser X was mentioned, as a Floyd Beck homage.
>>49125979Is the upgrade pastebin going to be upgraded with a bunch of new upgrade options?
>>49125951You can't parry the same attack with both, and there was a need for space for the harpoon.
>>49125945Did he just hack time with a power fist?
>>49125996Well, one idea I had for when we get bit weaponry is to name it the Knuckle Kaiser Full Regalia. That includes the knuckle throne.. which I called the Knuckle Kestrel on paper. Fun fact, a light heavy mechfighter with just armor and thrusters can go crazy fast. Like close to 60 MA a turn fast.
>>49126013Yes. Now it will mostly follow paths instead of the basic upgrades that were there before, so it's getting a major overhaul.
>>49126049Yes he did.
>>49126049Oh ya, I just watched Kung Fury yesterday and it might be the single most 80s thing I have ever seen.>>49126067>We get to debate which upgrade path to take the KaiserGet ready for the real waifu wars anons
>>49125945you got me there. this is the other one I remember. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=bMC57r4PPsw
>>49126122Alright that ones pretty catchy
Oh Karen, you spoil us.
"Karen, this is fantastic. Can we really afford to build this?"She glances askance at you, puffing up her cheeks, "Of course we can, we still have tons of money and...I admit it, Red is making herself useful and helping to get us the parts I needed. Emphasis on needed, I've assembled them already. We have all the pieces, so now we get to go straight to the fun part and put them together!" She grins, flipping her wrench into the air and catching it, "Now shut up and listen to what I've been doing. You remember the Anseis' drills?""It's a little hard to forget them or the tantrum she threw when Clemmy stole them." You remark casually, using a set of industrial clampers set on a wheeled chassis resembling a small tank to start removing the armor plates from the Kaiser's legs. The new model has huge plates covering the front part, like part of the shields themselves, but the old armor needs to be stripped off for them to be mounted."I asked Clemmy to do it. It was for you, after all. Clemmy gets to make her mech stronger, I get to use the Flowerhorn as a test subject for the completed version of the system that's going to be installed on the Kaiser when it's done." She makes a face, "She could have just challenged Alice to a duel, but instead she went running to you. I have no sympathy for her or her stupid attitude. I still don't want her to get killed, though, she's just...a bit silly and old-fashioned.""I'll do my best. So, I'll be the second one to have drills installed on the Kaiser? You know, those aren't really my kind of weapons...I mean, a drill could sort of be an individual finger, but I fight with my entire fist." You remark.She nods vigorously, "Yes, yes! That's why yours is more complicated, building mobile hand drones that are capable of grabbing things is harder than just slapping a beam saber on there and calling it a day." [Continued]
>>49126265Oh... I waited so long for this...
>>49126265Rocket Fists my friends.. rocket fists. In a world full of Real Robots, we shall be Super.
>>49126350Time to think up some super moves to steal besides shinning finger
"You're thinking about grappling already? We've only been working for a few minutes, normally you have a lot more to educate me about before we sneak into the cockpit and lock the door." You tug one of her pigtails in passing.She yelps indignantly, "Hey! Oily hands!"You hold them up, "I'm keeping mine clean, you're the messy one."She sticks her tongue out, "You don't complain about me getting messy at night, Roarke Starwind.""No, I don't." You agree, and pat her backside instead, "There, no machine oil in your hair.""You just pulled a slipped gear out barehanded, your hands aren't clean at all!" She twists around, craning her neck to see, "You left a HANDPRINT!"You shrug innocently, "Sometimes these things happen.""And sometimes I get distracted when I'm trying to enlighten you on mechanical knowledge perhaps half a dozen people in this system are aware of. Right, where was I? Oh, yes. The big problem.""What problem? Can't you just copy it?" You inquire quizzically."No! That's the problem! I've dissected the Anseis' head. It's...incomprehensible. I mean, it's clearly some kind of mech, but the control system is...is only vaguely comprehensible because it stems from the same root as the modern HMIS. Not only that, but whatever powered that thing, it wasn't fusion. It had a power cell for that sword, but that was a separate system. No wires, no cables...but an awful lot of decaying organic matter." She wrinkles her nose."Organic matter? Like some kind of conductant jelly?" You frown, trying to imagine it."More like rotted...white...gunk that smelled like a salad gone bad." She shakes her head vigorously, "I had to wear a gas mask when I was working with it.""...But it can be replicated, right?" You press her.She shrugs, "Anything can, but it's going to be harder than I initially thought. The thing is, though, I KNOW it's possible."[Continued]
>>49126375I know I have seen a super robot wars attack where the mech rides a giant rocket fist.
>>49126487That'd be the Mazinger Z if I recall. New version, where it summoned up a bunch of rocket fists to form them into a GIANT rocket fist.
>>49126461Fuck.Their bots ARE green men.We should check for foreign spores.
>>49126461so all the super mechs have organic power systems? are we fighting Evas?
>>49126536Likely not greenmen themselves, but likely using the tech she could salvage. Seems like it's using bioenergy generators compared to the standard stuff.
>>49126559Nah, if they were eva's they would be almost purely organic with a nice shiny metal shell on the outside.From what this sounds like this is a basic mech, just with greenman bullshit in the works giving it some extra oomph.
"You're getting incoherent, slow down and explain it calmly." You smile at her, wrenching off the armor piece."Mmm, let me attach the new plates. They're thicker and more sturdy, but thanks to the new verniers and efficient armor positioning it will be lighter in the end." She sighs, taking a minute to work to clear her thoughts. "Grandpa talks a lot about some of the old Wartime superweapon projects. Even after NaNa-01 failed, there was still call for something that could be as viscerally imposing and powerful as a Green Man bio-armor. Which led to the development of the Mobile Army Weapon, Megabass. It was a pretty fringe idea, I'm sure the UJCIDF never actually built the Megabass, but Grandpa says all of the actual design work was finished, which means it's possible for a mech with a standard power source and control scheme to achieve the Anseis' results.""Time out. Mobile Army?" You inquire.She nods, "The idea was to create one machine, which in the hands of a particularly capable individual with high HMIS sensitivity, could do the work of an entire army. The original called for using a pair of heavily modified battleships as carriers for the large and powerful main body along with a horde of attendant mecha. I speak loosely when I say mecha, they would be simple things like...like glorified missile platforms or something if Grandpa was telling the truth.""And this is real this time? NOT another urban legend or something you read on the holonet?" You ask."Yuh-huh." Her head bobs up and down, "I trust Grandpa."You sigh and examine your battered mech. "I trust him too, but two whole starships existing to ferry around one mech...that sounds like a myth." "It's classified as an anti-planet weapon!" She replies cheerfully.[Continued]
>>49126563Hmm... i think this is a gel made from that organic estructures that exists in the leaves of plants, i don't remember the name, but one of them stores energy, no? it is probably not so dangerous... But paranoia in justified in this case.> "Have you checked for spores...?"
>>49126629YESSSSS!!!!!!! WE MUST BUILD THIS GLORIOUS MACHINE FULL OF DAKKKKKAAA!!
>>49126629I wanna fight it
>>49126629>new verniersRejoice, Paladin guy! REJOICE!
