>>1898435average of 59.66 a decent successYour troops brace for the vehicle assault from the greenskin horde, badly outnumbering your troops....Most of your troops and vehicles take defensive positions around the gargant, while two companies from the 3rd Ranger regiment quickly displace and move further into the prison camp, where they take up positions in buildings along the route of approach the Greenskins are taking, setting up in cover, with several missile launchers, lascannons, autocannons, with a few Rangers equipped individually with plasma and meltaguns....The Valkyies and Vendettas do their best to engage the enemy vehicle column from the air but are dissuaded by heavy ground fire, losing one of their number to the large number of heavy automatics on the ork vehicles.....Unfortunately, a group of Ork Kommandos, previously dropped off their kopters have managed to infiltrate within 30 yards of the defensive positions and have opened fire on several tank crews who were out of their vehicles doing maintenance and taking a break before the next fight, killing several of them, and causing a degree of confusion in the defense area, which is quickly brought under control by your experienced officers and non-commisioned officers, who immediately direct several sharpshooters perched atop the gargant to engage the kommandos, while a company of rangers shifts to engage them....Meanwhile the forward Ranger companies, allow the first few vehicles to pass unhindered as the Ork column speeds by before opening up on the unsuspecting greenskins, several missiles rise up towards the greenskins as if summoned, followed by the sights and sounds as Lascannons bark, while the staccato of heavy automatic weapons tear into the unarmored passenger compartments of several trukks, slaughtering their occupants in a matter of moments....The Rangers are able to destroy several dozen vehicles before the sheer volume of fire and losses taken force them to withdraw from the fight, dispersing into the buildings and and dense machinery of the camp, forcing several hundred greenskins to dismount and follow them....Unfortunately in the initial defense, one of the small buildings collapsed due to being struck by several tank cannon shells, killing most of the squad sheltering inside almost instantly, the badly wounded survivors quickly finished off by the greenskins....
>>1898599Meanwhile, closer to the Gargant, the rest of the column has continued moving towards your forces, with your baneblade tank trading long range shots with several of the Ork tanks, disabling several, and outright destroying a few....It doesnt take long before your other tanks get in the fight, loading armor piercing shells for the enemy tanks and high explosive for the Ork infantry, the undiciplined greenskins attack in poor order, leaving many of their vehicles exposed at the same, compared to ours which make use of line of sight and building cover, along with skilled shooting to stifle the Ork attack....Only 4 Leman Russ tanks are lost, compared to over 2 dozen Ork tanks.....It doesnt take much more to break the Orks morale, their attack being completely stopped and failing specaturarly....A. Counter-attack immediatelyB. Wait for reinforcements then slowly take the camp from the GreenskisnC. Other(Write-in)
>>1898625A. Counter-attack immediately
>>1898625A. Counter-attack immediatelyIn-universe war theory and practical examples all suggest that you should never disengage from a retreating force of Orks. Attempts must continue to prevent them reorganising and their energies being focused.
>>1898648>>1898631Your vehicles begin a large scale counter attack, supported by 2 more ranger companies, while in the meantime, reinforcements are finally brought in from the orbiting fleet above, consisting of 2 more Leman Russ squads from 2nd Mechanized regiment and 3 companies of infantry, riding on 20 Chimeras. also from the 2nd.Your main counterattack quickly crushes most of the greenskin vehicles and infantry, putting them into a disorganized flight, with only pockets of resistance from Nobs rallying troops to their side, which are quickly dealt with using airstrikes and overwhelming firepower, with sponson and hull mounter heavy bolters reaping a gory harvest out of the regular Ork boyz, clearing the way for Rangers running shortly behind them, who gun down any Ork survivors......In addition shuttles and Valkyries are used to bring down 4 more Ranger companies as well, who quickly join the assault, while Valkyrie mounted airborne troops, move to take out the network of guard towers, overlooking most of the prisoners, in order to support a large scale revolt.....The 2 Ranger companies that went out earlier, are quickly relieved by the arriving troops and airsupport and continue pushing into the interior of the camp where most of the prisoners are held.....The guard towers are quickly eliminated by droptroopers picking off the guards, or by attacks from your aircraft, which quickly destroy several of them, as droptroopers equipped with Tzavara's tau-based plasma guns or sniper rifles, take the Ork guards place and begin picking off enemy guards and officers, causing the prisoners to start and uprising, many turning their picks and shovels against their captors, slaying dozens of Ork guards, but costing the lives of many slaves....After a few hours of fierce fighting, it seems the Orks have been purged from the camp, with hundreds of their vehicles destroyed, leaving just over 10,000 humans slaves still alive after the harrowing revolt, where individual greenskins were able to slaughter dozens of human slaves at a time in close range, the emaciated slaves offering little challenge to the massive beasts....The camp is quickly secured, and defenses are established with several ridges and areas of rough terrain helping to form some natural defenses, while simple fieldworks are erected, including defensive ditches and trenches, while several ferrocrete bunkers are molded and poured into critical defensive positions, and should be ready for battle within a few weeks.....
>>1898942Where should we attack next?A. The canyons, we will likely face heavy resistance here, even after an orbital bombardment, with Sneaky Stabbas main base hidden among the Canyon, in bunkers and deep underground, where only a ground troops can get them.... You believe this is his main baseB. The Capital ruins- with Auriok city bombarded and then brutally pillaged, it is little more than a ruin now, mostly pockmarked and scarred by the lasfire and heavy ork rounds from the last major stand of the Separatist defenders, with the worlds PDF rallying and fortifying their capital for a last stand, unfortunately, they left the sewers lightly guarded, and Sneaky Stabba and his elite kommando nobs managed to lead a large force through the sewers, silently eliminating the sewer guards, and managing to infiltrate key parts of the city, before launching a massive surprise attack on the unsuspecting defenders, cutting down many of the Separatists in the opening moments, leaving only a few minor pockets of resistance that were quickly silenced by grenades and heavy automatic fireThe Capital would be a strong symbolic victory, but will likely be the most costly, with a significant amount of the Greenskin strength there. It is also well connected by the worlds surviving infrastructure to the rest of the planet

>>1914759Alright that's all for now, I'll pick it up sometimes this week. Feel free to ask questions and discuss
>>1914915Thanks for running.Have we heard anything about the progress of our Big I friends campaign in other regions yet?
>>1914915Can we please drop this avg system?
>>1914915Dude, i thought we agreed some time ago we hate Avg system, and you said you'd stop it. You keep going back to it, and its fucking out choices.Why?
>>1914925>>1915609>>1914915Maybe we should spend time trying to develop a new dice system. I like the one in GOT quest being run right now so far.
>>1916039I'm open to it, but I just think /qst/ needs a better dice roller, period. One that links to Random.Org would be perfect.As far as the method I would use with what we have, i'd say "roll 3, drop the lowest, avg the rest."
>>1916280How about we have multiply rolls, qm rolls a dice to set the general difficulty and we roll based on modifiers that we have.Throw in a system were we decide dice by our choices. Bo3 for good ones, best of 3 out of 5 for really good ones etc.
>>1916406How about we go back to what the fuck we had when this all started. Bo3 with a set DC that had modifiers. The only reason we changed I think is cause of some whiney cocks
>>1916586when did we ever have bo3? I thought we always had averages, then changed it to best averages of 2, then back to averages?
>>1916586>>19166041916604 is correct... We NEVER had Bo3. You in the right quest, Anon?
I believe we briefly had a roll 4 drop the worst average of 3 system which was... slightly better
>>1914923We'll cover that along with several updates on projects and stuff when focus returns to tarkon
>>1921358Should have time to run during the day both Saturday and Sunday, maybe even get a couple posts in Friday night
