Unfortunately, it was just you and BLL available to hold them off while Hess' Titan sealed the blast doors leading to the conduit so the IMC couldn't sabotage it again. The odds were stacked against you, but there could be ways to even it up...>Request Hess to help you out on foot.>You and BLL can handle this.>Other

>>1231524>>Request Hess to help you out on foot.
>>1231524"C'mon, BLL, let's do this!" You say as you push the control sticks forward."WE'RE STILL OUTNUMBERED 3v1." BLL points out. "ARE YOU SURE YOU DON'T WANT TO SPLIT UP?">Fight on foot alongside BLL.>Stick to piloting BLL.>Other

>>1231637>>Stick to piloting BLL.Jolly cooperation
>>1231637"Nah, I think we're better together!" You grin."YOUR FUNERAL." BLL grumps as he arms his Predator autocannon. "SO WHO DO WE PUNISH FIRST?"Well, the Northstar seemed to be the bigger threat, hovering up high above to rain down death from above. Then again, Reavers, even though they were smaller and weaker than Titans, shouldn't be underestimated either...>Try to shoot down the Northstar.>Take out the Reavers first.>Other
>>1231738>>Try to shoot down the Northstar.Time for some payback!
>>1231738>>Try to shoot down the Northstar.

>>1231738>Try to shoot down the Northstar.
Rolled 15, 9 = 24 (2d20)>>1231738"Let's take down those Reapers first!" You decide. "WHAT ABOUT THAT NORTHSTAR?" BLL asks."We'll just have to deal with it." You shrug."YOU ARE SUCH AN ASSHOLE." BLL grumbles as you swing your minigun in line with the two Reapers, which were quickly closing in on your position, their ruby red optics flashing, their arms glowing blue as they charge with lethal energy.>Roll 1d20
Rolled 14 (1d20)>>1231799LETS GO

Rolled 7 (1d20)>>1231799
Eh, a 17 is pretty good.
>>1231845Its ok i guse
>>1231799The Predator autocannon roars, sending waves of bullets at the approaching Reapers. The frontmost slows as armor piercing and incendiary rounds punch through its armor, shredding it apart like paper. Its head melts under the storm of fire and the whole robot collapses before exploding brilliantly. You then pivot BLL's to the left, not even bothering to let up on the trigger. The stream of tracers rips through the ground like a laser, shearing through one of the second Reaper's legs, causing it lose its balance and fall over, taking it out of the fight for a few critical seconds.Meanwhile, the ground a scant meter to your right explodes as a high velocity railgun slug slams down, courtesy of the Northstar.>Finish off the Reaper>Engage the Northstar>Other
>>1231867>>Finish off the Reaperone at a time.
>>1231867>>Finish off the Reaper
>>1231867>Finish off the Reaper
Rolled 16, 1, 11 = 28 (3d20)>>1231867You stomp BLL over to the downed Reaper, which is still trying to scramble back onto its feet to engage you. You raise the autocannon above BLL head and bring it down in a stabbing motion like a sword, punching the barrels straight through the Reaper's back armor and you pull the trigger. Bullets and the weapon's cycling rip through the Reaper's innards like a blender, and its optics go dark.However, that Northstar was still up there...>Roll 1d20

Rolled 17 (1d20)>>1231945
Rolled 8 (1d20)>>1231945
>>1231945BLL sees the shot before you and temporarily overrides your controls, pivoting himself on one leg and spinning around like a ballet dancer, pulling the Predator autocannon out of the Reaper's corpse as he does so. A railgun slug touches down right where you and BLL had previously been standing. BLL's top mounted optic rolls up to track the flying Titan, which was now starting to weave side to side. Understandable, considering that the Reapers were no longer up to run interference for it.>Try to shoot down the Northstar.>Eject and grapple onto Northstar.>Other

>>1231969>>Eject and grapple onto Northstar.
Rolled 11, 8, 19 = 38 (3d20)>>1231969"Hey BLL, is the ejection system working right?" You ask."YES, BUT WHY WOULD YOU-" BLL pauses for a second as he realizes what you're planning. "YOU ARE FUCKING CR-"You hit the ejection lever and with a WHUMP, rockets built into your seat launches you high into the sky. BLL meanwhile lets his minigun loose, showering the air with bullets and tracers to keep the Northstar's attention away from you. All you needed was one good hit...>Roll 1d20+2
Rolled 5 + 2 (1d20 + 2)>>1232063WEEEEEEEE
Rolled 15 + 2 (1d20 + 2)>>1232063A palpable hit!
Rolled 2 + 2 (1d20 + 2)>>1232063Come on
>>1232063Your grapple hits straight and true, latching onto the Northstar's chest. You start reeling yourself in, speeding towards the Titan. You get your explosive charges ready to give the Northstar a nasty surprise-However, that's when the Northstar's cockpit pops open, the IMC Pilot leaping out to engage you, SMG raised. Looks like he saw what you were planning, as well.>Disengage!>Commit to the attack.>Other
>>1232101>>Disengage!>BLL, Now's your chance to shine, Bullseye him
>>1232101>>Otherchuck bombs at pilot.

>>1232101>>Commit to the attack.
Rolled 7, 20, 15 = 42 (3d20)>>1232101You decide to commit to the attack, continuing to reel in to meet the enemy pilot HEAD ON, MOTHERFUCKER.>Roll 1d20+1

Man this northstar pilot has to be our rival, future best friend or something at this point.
>>1232294Must be Sayaka
Rolled 10 (1d20)>>1232273End up kiss him
>>1232294Perhaps we'll trade scars or something symbolic?
>>1232312Turns out he is a big titan dork like us. When we aren't fighting we dork out with each other or something.
>>1232273You like to think that you were fast but this guy was faster. He uses his jump kit to get an extra burst of speed towards you, his fist swinging out and connect straight into your helmet. Your vision explodes into stars as you lose your grip on the grapple and tumble in the air.Fortunately, BLL is there to catch you in his outstretched hand, his Predator cannon roaring in the other."NICE CHOKE." BLL rumbles as he stashes you safely back into his cockpit."Shut up." You grumble.The Northstar has also similarly recovered its Pilot, though it had to dip down and lose altitude in order to do so. However, its railgun hisses with pent up energy, ready to start firing again as well.>Have BLL shoot. >See if BLL can leap and pull it down.>Ask Hess for assistance.>Other
>>1232351>>Have BLL shoot.aim for the rail gun?

>>1232351>Have BLL shoot.
>>1232351>See if BLL can leap and pull it down.
Rolled 3, 9, 7 = 19 (3d20)>>1232351"Let it rip, BLL!" You yell, still nursing the bruise on your head from that goddamn Northstar Pilot's hit. "ROGER." BLL's optics flash as he brings his Predator autocannon back in line.>Roll 1d20+2
Rolled 12 (1d20)>>1232385
Rolled 10 (1d20)>>1232385
Rolled 17 + 2 (1d20 + 2)>>1232385HERE COMES THE SNOW, OF BULLETS!
Rolled 8 + 2 (1d20 + 2)>>1232385
>>1232394Down this low, there was no way for the Northstar to avoid BLL's fire. It tries to raise its arms to shield itself from the storm of bullets, but one of the things Northstars weren't that great at was that they had practically zero armor. The Northstar's dinky little arms practically disintegrate and rounds start punching into its hull. The engine pods cough and die as fuel lines and power cables are cut, and the Northstar begins losing even more lift.And with a loud WHUMP, you could see the IMC Pilot eject from the Northstar, trying to make his escape.>Take him out.>Try and capture him.>Let him go.>Other
>>1232413>Try and capture him.
>>1232413>>Try and capture him.
>>1232413>>Try and capture him.New friend here we come.
>>1232413>Try and capture him.Oh no, you aren't getting away just to come back and give us more trouble again.
>>1232413>Let him go.
>>1232351Punch it bill
Rolled 17 (1d20)>>1232413"BLL! Fastball special!" You grin as you pop open the cockpit."WHY DO YOU ASSUME I KNOW WHAT THAT IS?!" BLL groans as you leap into his palm."Because who wouldn't?" You laugh as you brace yourself."DON'T BLAME ME IF YOU BREAK YOUR NECK, THEN." BLL shakes his optic as he winds up and throws, catapulting you into the air.>Roll 1d20
Rolled 16 (1d20)>>1232501TIME TO FLY LIKE AN EAGLE
Rolled 11 (1d20)>>1232501WEEEEEEEEE
Rolled 13 (1d20)>>1232501Oh boy, here we go again.
Rolled 8 (1d20)>>1232501
Rolled 17 (1d20)>>1232501
>>1232501You manage to tackle the IMC Pilot in midair, but again, the enemy Pilot seems to read your every move as he manages to twist around and grapple you, sending the both of you tumbling down to Earth in a flurry of punches and kicks. You feel a knee drive into your gut, while at the same time you crack your helmet directly into his in a vicious headbutt. However, as you two struggle, you're both still plummeting down to the ground in an uncontrollable descent.>Try to overpower the Pilot.>Disengage.>Pile driver!>Other
>>1232559>>Pile driver!Pull off the helmet and find a beauty?
>>1232559>Other be the majestic savior you are grab him by the waste and grapple hook both of you to safety. Then punch him in the face when you land safely.
>>1232559You decide that it was finally time to end this fucking sideshow. You tighten your grip around the IMC Pilot and engage your jump kit, propelling the both of you down to the ground even FASTER."What the fuck are you doing?!" The IMC Pilot yells, trying to break free from your grip.But you weren't about to let go.>Roll 1d20
Rolled 12 (1d20)>>1232586
Rolled 17 (1d20)>>1232586Time to dive into the fireworks.

Rolled 20 (1d20)>>1232586
>>1232598Damn if only you got here sooner
>>1232586You pay the Pilot's words no heed as you maintain your grip, pointing the both of you down headfirst so your opponent could his own jump kit to counter the fall. The next part required precise timing, which was where BLL came in with his advanced optics and rangefinders."NOW." BLL buzzes as he tracks your fall.On his cue, you immediately twist in the air, arranging it so the IMC Pilot would hit the ground before you, making him a convenient cushion against the impact. He doesn't have time to protest or do anything before there's a loud WHUMP, SNAP, and CRACK and your vision blacks out. When you finally come to, your vision is blurred, but you recognize Hess' eyepatched face as she hangs over you. "Aha! So you ARE alive!" She laughs as she helps you up to your feet."THAT'S WHAT I JUST FUCKING TOLD YOU." BLL complains."Well, regardless, that was a fine, if unconventional kill!" Hess pats you on the shoulder a bit too roughly as she points to a small crater in the ground. "Quite the feat, crashing your opponent into the ground like that!""Yeah, well, sometimes you gotta improvise." You chuckle weakly. Suddenly, the both of you are interrupted by a loud, static buzz as a massive energy weapon discharges. You, Hess, and BLL turn to see an azure beam of light lance into the sky, disappearing into the clouds above. "Looks like we've got the cannon working now!" Hess grins and points to the welded blast doors. "And the conduit is sealed up so they won't be able to get back in so easily!""WE PROBABLY SHOULDN'T STICK AROUND TOO LONG." BLL's optics swivel back and forth. "I DON'T KNOW ABOUT YOU, BUT THIS GUN EATS UP A SHIT TON OF AMMO AND WE'VE BEEN FIRING IT NONSTOP.">Better head back to base.>See if you can scavenge anything first.>Other
>>1232624>See if you can scavenge anything first.
>>1232624>>See if you can scavenge anything first.Not like we can jerry rig a weapon.
>>1232624>>See if you can scavenge anything first.Damn we killed the guy.
>>1232624>>See if you can scavenge anything first.
>>1232624>Better head back to base.
>>1232624"Well, hold up for a sec there, BLL." You pause, surveying the wrecked Tone and Northstar. "Maybe there's something we can scavenge from these Titan wrecks.""I SWEAR YOU ARE A GODDAMN KLEPTO." BLL groans. "ALL RIGHT, LET'S MAKE THIS FAST.""Ah, as expected of the poor ass Militia!" Hess nods in apparent understanding.You try to ignore her as you survey the wrecks. >Roll 1d20
Rolled 15 (1d20)>>1232657
Rolled 5 (1d20)>>1232657
Rolled 4 (1d20)>>1232657C'mon good stuff!
>>1232657Unfortunately, the Tone was completely trashed and was a complete writeoff. Similarly, there wasn't anything of note to grab from the pair of destroyed Reapers, either. However, you do hit some paydirt with the Northstar wreck, which was still fairly intact. You could see some advanced missile pods mounted on its back, as well as its booster rockets. However, you figured you'd only have time to salvage one of those systems before you had to keep moving.>Missile Pods>Rocket Boosters
>>1232670>Rocket BoostersMILDLY FAST LEGION MOVING AT INTIMIDATING SPEED
>>1232670>Rocket BoostersWouldn't be surprised if we can pull off a ROCKETO PAUNCH!!!
>>1232670"BLL, pull off those rocket boosters and we'll get out of here." You instruct."ALWAYS GOTTA GRAB A TROPHY, HUH?" BLL bends down and pulls the boosters off of the wrecked Northstar's back like plucking feathers from a chicken."Come on, let's get back!" Hess says energetically as the defense cannon continues to shriek, sending a series of blue energy bolts into the sky. You hope it was really doing a number on the IMC fleet up there.You and Hess drive your Titans back to the base as quickly as possible. Already, you could see dropships with the IMC logos hastily crossed out with spray paint coming down to land. "Wait, we're leaving already?" Hess gasps in surprise as she leaps out of her Titan. "The base is already compromised." Hessler grunts as she oversees the evacuation. "That fleet the Admiral sent after us was only an advance party. There will be more coming.""And we've only chased the fleet off for the moment." Tarin adds as she walks up. "We've only got a narrow window to clear out.""So we're turning tail and running again?!" Hess pouts, clearly not happy with this turn of events."Until we can find somewhere safe to set up a base." Hessler sighs. "Tarin has promised that the Militia will lead us to a suitable location.""Hmph." Hess grunts."Well, I look forward to seeing what the inside of a Militia ship looks like." Hessler says to Tarin."It's not really that much different from any other ship." Tarin shrugs.Wait a minute, does that mean-"Yep, we're gonna be having house guests!" Ramirez pats you on the shoulder. "So be on your best behavior!"Oh god this was gonna be weird...>And that's it for tonight! As always, next thread is next week. And don't forget KanColle on Friday!
>>1232690Thanks for running merc!
>>1232690See you next time, Merc.
>>1232690Thanks for running Merc!I finally picked up Titanfall 2 this week so now this quest makes way more sense.
>>1232690Shame the pilot died, he was good. I wish to romance the Hessler
>>1232694Hm, think we might be able to scrounge up enough players for a game? Show of hands; who plays on what platform?(I'm on PC, for the record.)
