The year is 1953. The great war has raged for nearly 50 years without end. Nations have risen and fallen, armies march daily, the skies are darkened by soot and smoke. It is a age of war. A age of glory. The age of the Shells.When the British first unveiled their prototype tanks on tie early battlefields, their initial success was met by a new type of armored vehicle. Able to cross trenches with the agility of infantry and take small arms fire with the durability of tanks, came the Shells. Armored bipedal walkers, armed with mortars, Field guns, anti-aircraft cannons. The Shells enabled their pilots to engage the slower tanks at close range and destroy them effortlessly.Before long, every major power was producing Shells to combat their opponents. The British Mk3 Footman, The American M7 Patriot, The German Mk15 EisenSoldat. Coupled with the improved tanks, Infantry and air support from the fleets of Zeppelins covering battlefields like malignant clouds, the battlefields of this conflict are dangerous, chaotic and desolate places. Welcome to hell soldier.Welcome to ShellStorm.
>>1936103You sit on a bench, dozens of other soldiers around you either nervously checking their gear, praying, vomiting or somehow sleeping.

The White and Red field of the Polish Resistance flag stares back at you. The paint is chipped and faded but the other resistance members lovingly maintain it. You look around the safehouse. Wounded fighters are being brought in from a weapons depot raid. Apparently the Germans were waiting for them. You rub your eyes and lever yourself to your feet, helping to carry in a heavily wounded man missing his arm from the shoulder down. A high caliber round clipped it clean off. After surrendering a scarf as a tourniquet you go to grab your gear, odds are you'll be sent out soon.>Submachine gun and Shotgun with hatchet-Assault class>Light machine gun and bandoleer of grenades-Heavy Gunner class >Bolt action rifle and Revolver- Sniper class>semi-Auto rifle and grenades with a utility kit-Support class.>Other

>Heavy Gunner class.You sling a pair of grenade Bandoleers over your shoulders and heft your LMG, hooking the strap and grabbing a pair of replacement drums and stowing them in your pack. You look around the safehouse and notice a older member waving you over"You! Yes you! Yes, get over here. I need men to run a distraction on a outpost while we bust out some prisoners.

"Piotr Wojciechowski" you say proudly, the most Polish of names rolling from your tongue.He looks at you with a critical eye before making a note on his paper, shooing you on where a group of several other men are gathering. "Go, go! You are with Dmitri's group. He will be in charge. Go go!"You quickly find the leader of the distraction squad, a bearded man slightly older and taller than yourself, the Resistance flag stitched to the front of his jacket."Good. You are my new heavy Gunner yes? Good good. I am Dmitri Torkovksy. Lets keep each other alive yes?"He says with a gruff smile, pointing you towards the other men in your squad. It seems there are several groups of fighters moving in but your group seems composed of those trained to pilot Shells.Dmitri leads you all to the underground garage where the Shells are stored. The resistance lacks the ability to manufacture new ones but they have captured or salvaged dozens of German and Russian Shells. With some heavy modification to the EisenSoldat chassis and some makeshift weaponry, the resistance does very well for itself.You pause at the line of Mechs that are modified for heavy weapons use. Trying to decide which to claim as your own.>Heavily armored Quad mount with twin linked 30mm cannons and a heavy shield.-Hussar Model>Biped mount with medium armor and paired 12.7mm machine guns one arm with a impact grenade launcher on the other-Sturm Model>Heavy armored Biped mount with a 6lb field gun replacing the left arm and a medium shield-Blitz model>Other

>>1936498Your backHow did you get out of thr germans pow camp?
You settle your eye on a "Blitz" model. The field gun replacing the left arm is a hell of a heavy weapon. Its lack of a close combat option is concerning to you but with that shield you dont think you have to worry.The rest of your squad begins falling into their own Shells, sealing the hatches behind them. You see a few Support styled shells along with several Assaults. You'll be making a hell of an entrance at that outpost.Dmitri seals himself into his own Shell, a armored beast plodding along on 4 legs and bristling with machine guns. His amplified voice rings out"We've got a job to do men! Lets go and do it!"Short and to the point.You climb into the seat of your Shell and seal the hatch behind you. Instantly the small lights on the interior illumunate as you slide your feet into the leg controls and your hands into the gauntlet like controls for the arms. You take an experimental step forward and the motor hums, the hydraulics smoothly easing you forward. You grin to yourself. This should be fun.The hidden ramp to the mech garage swings down and your squad charges up it, turning onto the rubble strewn street just behind the captured trucks carrying your infantry support. Your squad makes quick work of the run through the ruins of the city, eying the standing buildings for German Snipers. Their bombing campaign reduced much of the city to rubble in their attempt to burn out the resistance. In the fires of the scorched city, the hate for the Germans was forged strong as steel.Civilians and Scavengers duck into cover as your squad passes out of the city toward the outpost, the faint glow of electric lights giving away its position. You settle into position near the troop trucks that have disgorged their contents, your support teams and the infiltration team.Eying the camp from the small ridge through your sights you can see several tempting targets for when the attack starts.>A Heavy Gun Truck, idling with a squad of infantry playing cards next to it.>A EisenSoldat armed with a long, heavy barreled rifle patrolling the perimeter>A Pair of Light Spider Tanks stomping around the front gate>The Large building that appears to be a barracks or guard post

Quick explanation of how combat works in this setting. While in a Shell, engaging another Shell/Tank/Static position for the initial attack we roll a D100 to see if it hits. Different ranges and weapons will have different DC's.If it hits we will then roll a D10 to see WHERE it hits on the Target. Once we have that established, we roll a D6 to see how bad it is. 1 being light damage, 6 being "Holy fuck its everywhere"
>>1936550>A Heavy Gun Truck, idling with a squad of infantry playing cards next to it.
>Firing on Patrolling Sniper EisenSoldat.You settle your gun sights slightly above and to the front of the German Shell. Its chassis seems adjusted for stability, probably for that long and bulky rifle styled anti armor cannon it uses. All around you, other shells are taking targets and infantry is getting into position. You can hear the multitude of clicks and metallic noises as safeties are disengaged and cannons are primed."FIRE!"Infantry charge forward, firing as they go, heavy and light cannons and mortars thunder, spraying soil and severed limbs wherever they land.You settle your sights as the German Shell stops and turns, light out Wilhelm>Roll me 1d100.

>8. Super mega damage. Mech completely disabled.You squeeze the trigger and your mech shakes with the heavy concussion as the round flies. You watch through the sights as the German Shell turns and begins bringing its weapon to bear as the round impact in its lower side.The detonation flings the mech sideways, flaming bits of metal and hydraulics falling around it as steam puffs from the destroyed cooling systems. The metal carcass smolders slightly as the motor spits fitful black smoke before dying. You whoop to yourself, swinging your sights around.>The Remaining Spider tank is pinning down some infantry with its machine guns. Free them up.>That Gun Truck is coming around the flank.

>Gun Truck.You hear the metallic clunk as your main gun reloads. You sweep your sights from the burning wreck of the German shell and bring them to bear on the heavy gun truck as it putters over the hill, a detachment of infantry pouring off the sides and laying prone in the grass. Already their fire is tearing into the exposed flank of your infantry. The Gun trucks linked cannons open up on you >Block with your shield.>Take the hits and Fire (ill roll for enemy damage)

>2+1. Medium damage. Your mech lurches slightly as you fire, spoiling your aim at the drivers slit. You scowl as you watch through the sights as the men finish reloading the cannons just in time to catch the 6lb shell to the faces.The entire cannon assembly on the back explodes in a small fireball of shrapnel and pink mist as the men manning the cannon and the cannon itself simply evaporate. The former gunner nest on the back of the Truck is now a smoking ruin of blood and twisted metal. The driver throws the war machine into reverse and quickly backs away over the hill, away from the hellish firepower.You smirk to yourself, racking a new high explosive shell as you look across the impromptu battlefield. Bodies litter the perimeter of the outpost camp as the rescue team leads the rescued prisoners out through a breach in the barbed wire. Both spider tanks are now burning wrecks. The camp itself burns, the barracks and guard towers smashed to ruin by the rampaging assault Shells. You can see several German soldiers milling about but they seem unwilling to engage.Dmitris amplified voice echoes out"Fall back! Fall back! We've got them!"You turn and beat a quick retreat through the darkened streets as the trucks bearing the wounded and rescued speed by you, taking the men to safehouse to recover and rearm.As you make your way back through the city you eye the skies as several flights of Attack planes swoop in, searching for survivors of the attack. You and your Squad are long gone.As you make your way back into the safehouse you can't help but feel pride at the successful raid. Few poles dead, a couple dozen Germans dead. That's a good day to you.You exit your Shell in the garage and leave it to the capable hands of the mechanics. Being a irregular group you dont really have a job to do, you can come and go as you please.>Go grab some food, catch some gossip or tips>Talk to the mechanics about customizing your Shell>Talk to Dmitri or another Squad leader>Go practice your skills >Go catch some sleep

One of the grease stained mechanics makes his way over to you, wiping his hands on a rag as he bellows instructions over his shoulder. Up close he is a massive, barrel chested man with a bushy red beard and grease smeared liberally on his face. "Hello! Hello my friend!"He shakes your hand boisterously with a bone pulping grip"I am Aleksi! Chiefest of mechanics here in our lovely home! I hear you did very well in the Blitz! Ah!

You cut him off"Like a grass fed dairy queen from the green pastures of yesteryear"You can see the veins in his temple throbbing from confusion"She handles very well Aleksi. You are a master at your craft"He smiles broadly, showing black grease stained teeth and claps your shoulder heavily, pulling you into the garage proper and boisterously talking about the modifications he made to each captured Shell."Ill tell you what my friend. For testing my new Shell designs, ill gibe you a discount on modifications and new parts! Deal?!" he grins at you like a oil covered bear>Deal. Lets see this prototype>No deal. Ill take the regular stuff.

Im assuming you know my weapons specialty?"He laughs loudly, clapping you on the back as he shows you a large sheet covering an imposing form."My friend your weapon specialties are exactly why I want you to test it!"He whips the sheet away revealing a sturdy mech. "Behold! The KettenBrecher!">KettenBrecher-Prototype custom mech- Quad frame. Tri linked 40mm cannons firing explosive rounds. A custom fitted shield on the left arm that functions as a close quarters weapon. Anti-Armor Rocket launcher mounted on right shoulder. Medium armor.>Take the KettenBrecher>Stay with your Blitz

>KettenBrecher Shell acquired.You admire the Shell before you, armored yet sleek and powerful. The Tri-linked cannons mounted on the arm allow full gripping and grappling while allowing you to lay down a storm of lead on your opponents. The shield covers the entire chest and upper legs when brought to bear while the edges are ground down to resemble a massive axe. The four sturdy legs are tipped with broad, steel clawed feet with thick rubber treads to ensure it remains steady as it fires. You look over the intimidating piece of machinery ahead of you and clap Aleksi on the shoulder, grinning ear to ear"I love it!"You exclaim happily, looking over the small checklist of features hanging from a post next to the KettenBrecher "Well my friend! She will need a name if you intend to ride her to victory!">Name your Shell?

The name suits the Shell. With this weapon of destruction you shall bring liberation to mother Poland.You shake Aleksi's hand one final time and bid the mechanic goodbye as you make your way out of the cavernous garage and into the kitchen/mess area. You file in behind some other late arrivals and grab a plate of potatoes and sausage and look for a table>Sit with the members of your first squad>Sit with the infantry squads, learn more about fighting on foot>Sit with the mechanics, learn about the Shells>Sit by yourself.

War overall wins. Writing.
You chew in silent contemplation of this new information, listening to the gossip and chatter around you as the various fighter groups mingle. "Anybody heard any news? Of the larger war effort? We aren't the only ones fighting after all"You ask, looking around as several heads turn or nod in agreement"Heard the Americans and British landed some massive invasion from those Zeppelin fleets of theirs. Dropped them straight into hell in France and Spain."Calls one soldier"Aye the Harlem Helljumpers dropped in behind the Germans and fought like blue devils. Cut down nearly to the last man but they broke a hole clean through the Kaisers "Iron Wall". Friendly troops have been pouring through like a river ever since!" yells another. A cheer goes out for the legendary American Paratrooper unit."The Ottomans are holding Whats left of their Empire. Both the Germans and Russians want their oil but only the Germans get it without a fight. The Brits are having to fight through the north African coast to clear them out. Slow going but they have the best chance of uprooting the sandy fucks." comes another voice"The Russians aren't devoting much to the war in Europe, mainly just holding their ground while they and the Chinese punch each others teeth out. They've got entire legions of Shells slugging it out every day. Every. Day." says another in a nearly reverential whisper>Ask about the EisenSoldat>Ask about the Reichswalker >Finish your meal and go get some rest/Training

Polishing off the last scraps of your meal you wash it down with a glass of lukewarm water and hand your chipped plate back to the cook as you make your way into the common area of the safehouse. Built under the bombed out ruins of a warehouse and factory there is a surprising amount of space for the various projects this resistance cell works on. There is a training area complete with a makeshift firing range, A weapons stash where you can snag new equipment, the mech garage and a comms station where you can get missions for yourself if you dont feel like waiting on a raid.>Go get some training done>Go see what gear is available >go get some sleep. Start fresh tomorrow>Go by the comms station. See if they have a job for you
>>1938673>Get some sleepQM probably needs a nap too.
>>1938673>>go get some sleep. Start fresh tomorrow
>>1938718Nap? My man it is 9pm on a weekend. I just put a Boston butt in the slow cooker so ill be up for a while.
>>1938673>Get some sleepTime to pack it in for the night
>>1938814Truly the EisenSoldat of QMs.
>Get some rest.You make your way through the safehouse towards the bunk area. You pull the curtain out of the way and stow your gear in the small nook carved into the wall. You plop onto the cot with relief, kicking your boots off as you nearly instantly drift off to sleep.>An air raid siren. The scent of smoke and charred flesh. Clouds of black smoke coiling into the skies as flights of bombers and fighters wheel overhead. The armored prow of a zeppelin pushes through the clouds as the cannons lining its belly blow the city to ruins. A hand at your back pushing you into shelter.>"STAY DOWON PIOTR!">A Faint whistle grows louder and louder, striking home with the devastation of a giants slap. A flare of heat blooms behind you, propelling you down the stairs of the bomb shelter. A heavy, wet mass lands on your back, pinning you under a lump of scorched meat that wears a familiar aftershave...>"papa..."You wake with a start, rubbing away the sleep as you sit up, checking your watch by the light seeping under the curtain. Its morning. Nearly noon but still morning by your definition.>Go get some training in>Go grab some breakfast>Go check the comms station>Go to the garage
>>1938951>grab some breakfastEven cold pasta will do.
>>1938951>>Go grab some breakfast
>>1938978>>1938951That reminds me. What on earth happened to Italy and Austria-Hungary? Has the Flottiglia MAS graduated from manned torpedoes to piloting submersible mechs? I have so many questions...
>>1938951Breakfast first, but afterwards we should go get properly acquainted with our new mech. We should get used to it before the next battle so we don't have to fight green.
>>1938951>>Go get some training inTime to be the best.
>>1939018For ease of setting Ive folded them into Germany. Spain and France remain mostly free and are a staging ground for the allied attacks while most of mainland Europe is controlled by Germany.
>Grab breakfastYou file into the kitchen area and snag a plate. The boiled beans, what looks like onions and potatoes is piping hot and overly salty but good to fill your belly. You munch contentedly and chew swiftly, wishing to get your day started.You notice several members of your squad from yesterday filing out into the garage while Dmitri and some other squad leaders are milling about the comms room, looking over tattered sheets of paper. >try to get a job to do from the big shots at the comms station >Go get some training done>Follow your squadmates through the garage.

>>1940030AND WE ARE LIVE.
>Follow Squadmates You hurry to catch up with your squadmates from yesterdays raid and manage to catch Mateusz just as he is going through the door to the garage."Whats going on?" You ask, following as he leads you along "Actually was hoping you would come along. Jakub was part of a night patrol while you were sleeping. He managed to get the drop on a German who got separated from his squad."He says with a vicious grin, cracking his knuckles."Were going to go see what he knows"You swallow audibly as the sound of a wet heavy impact along with a yelp of pain. You can hear grunts of effort and a furious voice growling out"Talk! Talk you German dog or ill fry your balls in pig fat!"Another heavy thud and a whimper of pain followed by a scared voice in German"I do not know anything! Please! I just got here! I swear!"Jakubs voice comes again, cold fury"You'll tell me everything you know or ill peel the meat off your back and let the rats have you"You come around the corner after Mateusz and have to stop in shock at the sight before you. Jakub is standing before a young german, barely older than a boy, blood coating his knuckles as it drips from the terrified prisoners lips and shattered nose.The gathered members of your squad nod in greeting as you and Mateusz step into the light, taking your position in the semicircle of men surrounding the terrified German recruit.>Speak out against the beating. Just kill the poor boy.>Say nothing. Do not object.>Leave. You want no part in this.>Offer to show Jakub how its done
>>1940280>>Say nothing. Do not object.Give it a little bit, see what this German and our squad mates are made of.
>>1940280>Offer to show Jakub how its doneraep him
>Say nothing. Do not object.
>>1940280>>Leave. You want no part in this.
>say nothing. Observe.Jakub grips the young recruit by the hair, pulling his head back painfully to force him to look directly into his eyes."You will talk. There is no question about that my friend. The only thing that will change is how much I have to hurt you before you do."The recruits eyes open wide as a terrified animals as he begins babbling"I-I dont know anything! Im- im just a recruit! A conscript! I dont know anything of- Gaaah!!!"His terrified pleas are cut off by a heavy blow across the jaw that sends a pair of broken teeth skittering across the floor like dice. One bounces off your boot, a small white and red fragment gleaming up at you as a rain of blows impact the Germans face, ribs and groin."You-"Smack"Will-"Smack"TALK!"Smack.Smack.Smack.Jakub takes a step back from the beaten recruit, wiping clotted blood from his knuckles with a rag before throwing it on the Germans face."Anatoli... The pliers. Please">Say nothing. Observe.>Speak out. This is cruelty>Offer to show Jakub how a professional does it.>Leave.
>>1940331Well the kid seems to be telling the truth but Jakub is honestly kind of terrible at this.>Say nothing. Observe.If he goes for teeth then we should speak out.
>>1940345>>Say nothing. Observe.Right we probably wouldn't get much info from a conscript anyway
>Silent Observer.You cross your arms and grit your teeth as Anatoli, a swarthy, red faced man brings forth a small rolling table covered in greasy pliers, hammers and various ripping, tearing and cutting instruments. Jakub grabs a large pair of pliers with large, jagged serrations in the jaws. He experimentally clacks them a few times in front of the dazed recruits face before slapping sense back into his eyes."Now listen my young friend. Everything that is about to happen is your own fault for refusing to speak earlier. Last chance. Anything to tell me?"Jakub asks softly, gripping the recruits left little finger near the second joint with the heavy pliers. "Ple-eaaase I dont know anything! I swear-AAAAGGHGGG!!!!"His terrified plea turns into a scream of agony as his finger is crushed and ripped away by a swift jerk of the pliers. Small strings of flesh dangle from the severed digit as Jakub tosses it away. "9 to go my friend. Not counting your toes or teeth.">Speak out. Kill the damn boy he doesn't know anything.>Leave.>Interrogation time >Do nothing.
>>1940383>Speak out. Kill the damn boy he doesn't know anything.
>>1940383>>Speak out. Kill the damn boy he doesn't know anything.
>Speak out. That's enough.You take a step forward, placing your hand on Jakubs arm"That's enough Jakub. The boy doesn't know anything. He would have told you already if he did. Just finish him and be done with it. We arent animals."You say softly, gesturing at the pistol on his belt.Jakub looks at you coldly for a moment before nodding"Youre probably right. But I wont be the one to give a German mercy."He pulls the pistol from his belt and flips it, offering the butt to you.>Take it and kill the German.>Refuse. Jakub should do it (d100)
>>1940418>>Take it and kill the German.
>>1940418>>Take it and kill the German.Well we're the one who opened our damned mouth.
>>1940418>Take it and kill the German.
>>1940418>Take it and kill the German
>Execute. You grip the pistol and thumb back the hammer, turning in one smooth motion to aim at the brutalized German. His bloodshot eyes weakly focus on you as his head slowly rises, blood trickling down his chin freely."Plea-"BANG. a scarlet spray paints the wall behind his head as a small hole appears in the center of his forehead. His head twitches several times before dropping down, his chest resting on his chest as blood flows slowly down the wall behind him.You flip the pistol around, offering it back to Jakub who takes it with a nod, directing several of the other men to"Clean this shit up"He holsters the pistol and turns on his heel, walking out of the safehouse through the garage.>Go see about getting a mission >Go get some training in>Get acquainted with your new Shell>Other

>>1940515damn, that was ugly. best distract ourselves with our new equipment.
>Get Acquainted with White Partisan You make your way through the garage as other men untie the now deceased German and mop up the blood left behind. You pass Shells modified in bizarre and unique ways. One has had its left hand replaced by what appears to be a giant chainsaw while the other contains a nozzle and pilot light indicative of a flamethrower. Another resembles a large spider with long spindly legs and a heavy machine gun mounted under its belly with a 8lb cannon mounted on its back. Several of the assault Shells utilize shields and heavy hammers to bludgeon their way through enemy lines. The autocannons secured to their backs give them the firepower to go toe to toe with more durable Shells.You eventually settle before White Partisan. You note Aleksi has painted the name in neat letters under the pilots hatch along with a wide streak of white paint down each limb. The Shell is a gleaming example of polish ingenuity.You lever yourself into the pilots seat, adjusting the knobs and switches to your preference. You note the small toolbox under the seat so you can perform small field repairs. >perform a weapons test.>Perform a mobility test>Test the melee abilities.>Target practice with the rocket launcher>Take her out for a spin and see what trouble you can cause>Other

>Fuck it ill throw one out right now.
>Perform a mobility test.You seal the hatch, turning the wheel lock to latch the entrance and fire up the engine to White Partisan. The powerful motor growls to life as you slot your feet into the controls and your arms into the gauntlets. You make your way carefully around the garage floor, getting a feel for the Centaur-like Shells handling. The powerful legs work in unison, never leaving your Shell without a sturdy tripod at any time while it takes a step.You make your way out of the Garage and into the ruins of the factory above the safehouse. You can see multiple terrains available to practice on.>Go for a speed run on the ruins of the production area>Go for agility on the crumbling remains of the upper level>test stability on the piles of rubble litter the floor on massive piles

>91. One of your ancestors must have been part mountain goat.You set White Partisans front legs against the pile and shift the weight gingerly forward. The rock puffs dust as several tons of machinery press down on it but the pile remains stable. Encouraged, you hit the throttle and move forward and upward faster. Stray rocks are kicked backwards by the metallic claws, rebar is crushed into U shaped bends. You scale the several story high rubble pile like a massive oversized spider and stand atop the jagged peak like a victorious mountaineer. Emboldened you tip White Partisan forward, bending the multiple knees for stability as you slide down the rubble pile on a small avalanche of loose stones and rubble. You skid to a stop at the bottom, the massive steel claws at the bottom of White Partisans feet gouging lines in the floor as you take a mental note>System check- Stability- Excellent. White Partisan can remain stable and move easily over seemingly impassable terrain. Climbing ability is excellent.>Check Speed on a run through the production line>Check Agility on the Dangerous upper floors>Check Weapons>Take her out for a spin. Hunt some Germans.

You cant help but grin as you punch it and a secondary sight flicks open along your main.

>Sorry about that. I was cooking.>69! ROCKET GOOOOOOOOOYou press the firing stud and the Shell around you reverberates as the rocket ignites, flying through the air like a beam of light it crosses the distance in a moment. With a sharp THUD it impacts the rusted out car and immediately ignites into cloud of shrapnel and flame as the warhead explodes.Once the cloud of toiling flame and smoke dissipates it reveals a neat round hole punched through the door of the car while the remainder of the frame is spread apart like a tin can shot by a tank.

>Agility check. Ninja Shell?You smirk to yourself as you run a hand along the prototype Shells interior, adjusting the orientation as you do to look along the walls of the factory. The crumbling upper level calls to you and you smile at the challenge, stomping along toward a fallen support pillar that had torn an impromptu ramp in the ceiling. You clamber onto it and climb carefully onto the upper level of the Factory, looking out across the pitted and crumbling floor that leads to a rather painful fall. The Numerous stable areas are interposed by the far more numerous places where you can see the floor below through the concrete.This will be tricky.>Roll me 1d100 for your agility in White Partisan.

>100. We Ninja Shell nao.Driven by a sudden burst of bravado you gun the throttle, driving White Partisan forward at full speed. Dashing across the unstable floor you adjust the Shell with minute changes to the orientation to keep your weight moving in the way you want. With a creaking groan the section of floor you are on begins listing and leaning, puffs of dust popping up as the floor begins collapsing under your feet. Gritting your teeth you give a animalistic roar as you adjust the knees of all four of White Partisans legs and the multi ton Shell leaps like a deer, bounding across the collapsing floor like a animal. Every movement is pure instinct on your part as you move from stable area to stable area. You finally come to a skidding, smoking stop on the concrete, long scratches gouged in the floor leading to your feet. You pant in excitement as you listen to the growls of White Partisans engine.Damn..>White Partisans Agility Check- Exceptional. White Partisan can move and dodge at a nearly unheard of capacity on uneven terrain and gains a bonus to dodge and Melee combat of +5 (all enemy attacks have a -5 to hit)>Perform a weapons check>Check Speed>Go Nazi Hunting.

>93. SAHNIC MODEYou rev the engine several times, pumping power to the hydraulics before you release the brakes and White Partisan lunges like a panther. The Shells four legs pump in unison, carrying you faster and faster along the production line. You hook a sharp left and barely skid before resuming course, kicking up chips of stone as you go. You notice the configuration of the legs allows them to shift for a more stable position while moving at speed to allow you higher speed without sacrificing your balance. You hit the throttle in reverse and dig the shield into the ground, spinning yourself around and squealing to a stop as you cheer inside the armored shell. You've never seen a Shell this size move as fast.>White Partisan- Speed Check- White Partisan is an incredibly fast Shell for its size.

>The Dice be fickle whores >17. Weapon malfunction.You squeeze the trigger and the autocannons whirs for a moment before a loud clunk resounds from the action. Frustrated you hit the manual round eject and after several tries it ejects, bent and scuffed. Huffing, you take aim again, thumb squeezing gently on the trigger. BLAM BLAMKA-CHUNK"Son of a dog Fucking whore!"You yell in rage, smacking the interior of the Shell in fury. Another jam. You hit the eject and huff angrily as the action clears.

>Report issue to Aleksi.You flick the safety back on, manually ejecting the unspent shells from the unreliable cannons. You would try to fix the issue yourself but you dont fancy having your balls blown off by a misfire.You stomp back down the ramp into the hidden garage and park White Partisan in its berth, immediately mechanics swarm it with bottles of grease and containers of water and fuel are poured into their respective tanks.Aleksi drags himself from the bowels of an Armored truck being converted into a light tank and comes over excitedly "Piotr my friend! How is she? How does she treat you? Is she the woman of your dreams aha!!"He yells, clapping his oily hands on your shoulders.>How do you respond (write in)
>>1945175Really good, until the weapons jammed. And a Shell without a gun is only a fast target.
>>1945175>She handles like a dream. Agile, sure-footed, and fast. The rocket launcher is great for ambushes. But her guns, Aleksi, her guns. They jammed on the first shot! And then jammed again! There is something wrong with the guns, Aleksi, and without the guns, she is not ready for battle. But this is why we test them, no? To work out the kinks of the prototypes! You fix the guns, and the White Partisan will be rending German steel and flesh like a true beast of vengeance!
>>1945175She's fast like a panther and graceful like a ballerina but, like all woman, she's hard to please. Something's wrong with her weapon.
>>1945175Everything is perfect Aleksi, except that the fucking guns don't work! As she is now she'd make a lovely ballerina, but a shell can't fight without guns.
>>1945175>How do you respond (write in)>She's almost perfect, she's fast and agile for her size. But the guns jammed on me the moment I fired them, think you can fix them Aleksi?
You gesture towards the glorious work of polish ingenuity being tended by a crowd of tireless mechanics and take a deep breath"She handles like a dream. Agile, sure-footed, and fast. She flies if you give her the throttle. The rocket launcher? It will be great for cracking armor and will be great for ambushes." you take a moment, looking Aleksi in the eyes "But her guns, Aleksi, her guns! They jammed on the first shot! And then jammed again! There is something wrong with the guns, Aleksi, and without the guns, she is not ready for battle." you say, watching Aleksi's face change toward downtrodden"But this is why we test them, no? To work out the kinks of the prototypes! You fix the guns, and the White Partisan will be rending German steel and flesh like a true beast of vengeance!You finish, gripping the bearlike mechanic by his shoulders as you both grin, shaking hands as he nods"Yes my friend! Yes! We will fix my creations problem with her guns and then... And then you will test them. In battle. Live targets my friend!"Before you can object he is gone and bellowing orders at the other mechanics. Already the massive ammo drum on White Partisans shoulder is being removed and disassembled by several pairs of hands and power tools.>go grab some lunch.>Go see if you can pick up a job>go get some training done>go see about new gear>Other

You see dozens of other resistance members moving, many armed heavily and looking intense as they leave through multiple hidden entrances.You make your way to the comms office which is a mess of radio and telegraph equipment, a small cadre if highly proficient men and women maintain and keep the organized chaos moving. A young brunette approaches you, a sheaf of tattered papers in her hand"Hello! You are Piotr yes? Dmitri and Aleksi speak highly of your abilities. I am Tatyana, I can assist you in finding tasks suited for your abilities. Now if you'll look here...>Raid on a supply depot to secure arms and ammunition (White Partisan unavailable)>Demolition detail destroying a bridge while a German convoy moves over it (White Partisan Unavailable)>Attacking a German airfield to reduce their available airpower in the area. (White Partisan available)
>>1945434Raid. Should be fun
>>1945434>NOTICE(White Partisan Unavailable) means you are ON FOOT/Vehicle. You are another squishy meatbag on these missions. Not saying that makes them easier or harder, just dont think you can go toe to toe with a Reichswalker or a SturmWulf. You will lose.
>>1945434>Attacking a German airfield to reduce their available airpower in the area. (White Partisan available)Who's up for destroying planes and getting parts to add on to our new death engine?
>>1945434>>Demolition detail destroying a bridge while a German convoy moves over it (White Partisan Unavailable)Going into an airfield or supply depot without our shell sounds too risky, hooking up some explosives to a bridge is probably safer.
>>1945434>>Demolition detail destroying a bridge while a German convoy moves over it (White Partisan Unavailable)
>Demo detail. Paired with Jakub (Assault) and Anatoli (Sniper) You smile at the pretty Brunnete, taking the chosen sheaf of paper and reading through the details hurriedly as you walk through the safehouse to your bunk. There will be a German convoy of troops and armor moving out of the city across the river. If the charges detonate at the right time, hundreds of German soldiers and Shells, Tanks and trucks will be swallowed by the raging waters. Like all bridges out of the city is is guarded by a squad of German soldiers. You'll have to come up with a plan.You sling your grenades and LMG over your shoulder, making your way to the armory where Jakub and Anatoli wait for you. >Adjust loadout?>Current Loadout>LMG-light machine gun- 5 bursts per drum (3 drums)>4 Hand grenades>3 Anti armor grenades>Combat knife>look for heavy weapons/Explosives>Look for sidearm>Look for body armor>youre good.

>>1945780Just saw that. My bad.

>Anti-Armor rocket launcher gained (+3 rockets) >it will be returned after this missionYou grab a sleek, metallic tube with a optics set mounted on the side and a pouch with three, long rockets stashed securely in it.

>Revolver. You grab the sturdy, heavy barreled revolver and buckle the belt around your waist. This should deal with anyone who tries to get the drop on you. Jakub and Anatoli are almost ready arming up.>Lets roll.>Browse the body armor.
>>1946074>Not ignoring the QM and picking up the Body ArmorGuys...I think this is a heavily dropped hint that we may need body armor
>>1946074body armor plox. We already sacrificed speed for firepower. I am fine with that, everything we cary can be shed if needed, and who knows, perhaps it will come in handy.
>>1946074>>Browse the body armor.
>>1946074>Browse the body armor.
>Body Armor PlsYou turn toward the racks and piles of various types of military grade and homemade body armor. Picking up and flexing several types you have trouble deciding which to pick>Light armor- little better than a set of extra clothes it will keep knives and shrapnel away at least. Sometimes.>Medium armor- made of small plates of steel sandwiched between sheets of thick leather.

>Heavy- Plates of metal overlapping and padded with cloth on the inside. Comes with a full armored helm. Offers astounding protection but bulky and slow.Yeah we aren't Crowley. We're heavy weapons guy
>Heavy armor takes it.You strip your weapon slings, pack and jacket off, strapping the overlapping metal plates over your arms, thighs, shins and chest. Getting the buckles fastened is awkward but you figure it out and you take note that while your trigger hand is unarmored, the other is encased in a metal gauntlet complete with spiked knuckles. The added weight of this armor will lend heft to your blows. The thick helmet slots down easily over your head and pull back the visor, hooking it out of the way.You put your jacket back on, slinging your weapons, pack and grenades back onto your body as Jakub and Anatoli finish arming themselves."Are you ready Piotr?"Asks Jakub, slotting a massive knife into his belt along with several others"This may get messy!"Anatoli works the action of his rifle before slinging it over his shoulder "Just stay low and out of sight and well be completely fine"He says softly, pulling a dark wool cap over his ears.You make your way out of the safehouse together, looking onto the street carefully before piling in the back of a inconspicuous truck and nearly on top of several bundles of dynamite.You look around at Jakub and Anatoli as they get comfortable on the long ride"No Fucking smoking">Good place to call it for the night guys. Thanks for playing :) a toasty new bread will be posted tomorrow!
>>1946356while this is a reboot, and im guessing QM wants a fresh start, I would love a reference to Crowley as an urban legend or cameo that would follow the logical progression of him loosing himself to war and bloodlust for the enemy.>>1946414bueno. Also, what I expected the polish to be running around in.
>>1946487but what we got: https://www.artstation.com/artwork/o2aAz
>>1946414This was a tasty bread, thanks for cooking it up QM!
>>1946487Oh I haven't forgotten Crowley. Remember. A massive Allied invasion is underway and commando forces are being airdropped in EVERYWHERE.
Everyone, feel free to offer suggestions, ideas, criticisms, hate, memes. Im here until I fall asleep.
>Also if anyone has any good Mech Images that fit the theme feel free to post them
>>1946590abandoned fork of german mech engineering circa 1936. Too complicated, too expensive. Too prone to failure outside of it's developmental setting. Shelved. Your team makes the mistake of breaking into the warehouse of this archaic yet high dangerous piece of shit.
>>1946673Russian Scout shell. Armored apperance actually belies an ability to swim (Doggy paddle) or walk under water. relatively thin armor.
>>1946686its said, there is even a war above us, on the moon. No one believes it right? But why does it glitter at night like that?
>>1946701That's basically the armor you have on right now.
>>1946686Like a German version of the KriegHund
>>1946718Cursed, you mad bastard, how'sit goin?
I also have sorta been helping with world building...now that i'm home I should get back to that
>>1946718>>1946724sorta figured on the armor. I cant really give you too many images yet. Ignore the little "flavor text" i put with some of them, its more for fun, not to tell you how to direct the story or setting, though i doubt you think that. erring on caution.http://www.agisn.de/html/gear_krieg.htmlthat is one fork of apperancethe others are like the spider mech that looks more contemporary, but is all hydraulics, etc.oh also: Civilian Shells? or were they made purely for war?
>>1946753AYYYYYY FORNIA!!! Im great man! Getting back to Qm'ing now that im recovered mostly
>>1946768You know where to find me on Discord!
>>1946787There are civilian shells used like forklifts and excavators but they haven't replaced cars. Man i liked the flavor text. Gives me ideas.
>>1946791Nice dude! Good shit.
>>1946800>it had at least half a dozen names etched, painted, and lost to history. Destroyed, rebuilt, and modified. Used by nearly every faction on the front. It was a legend and a fact. "The Calamity" A shell so broken it was a miracle it still worked, not a piece was original, and each iteration took it further from whatever it was. There is one thing that remains true. It holds endless secrets, and each part added to it only adds to the imperfections mechanics seek to fix. Legs slightly, ever so slightly longer than one another, an odd limp, timing always slipping out of sync in the engine. Despite it all though, it went forward, it carried a massive load of armament, and it seemed to...hate. Most pilots never realized what they were in until their moment was upon them, each one making a vicious last stand, leaving destroyed husks around them, and the knowledge that this shell would probably be salvaged because of how durable it was.>Unknown Japanese design. Rumored to be built of aluminum. SPAAG. Its sportin' some kinda thermo-optic sensor up top above them guns. Lets it shoot down our guys in the dark. Scary shit Carl.>An american design, made to impress, a real shell of the 1960s!...hell its barley the 1950s. What we now call a "frame" which begat the "Shell" will be eventually superseded by the "POWER Suit". At least that is what marketing tried to cram down our throats. Thing could barely fucking turn, was rounded like a commie shell, and painted shit brown. Damn "arc discharge" weapons were some half cooked bastard child of the Tesla Edison LLC. (TEL). Things electrocuted six pilots before they were forced to wear a SCUBA skin made of rubber. That caused them to have several heat strokes. Despite it all the brass pushed forward about 300 of the things before they realized a melee charge to shock another shell to death just ain't that smart. Damn things are still out there, in the field. The magneto on them doubles as a pretty generator, and we often use em to power field bases. Makes life a little better, just dont count on em to be worth anything in a fight.
>>1947246>Zwei. It was huge compared to those which were already large. For years rumors speculating its existence terrified civilians, and yet somehow as if deliberate, it shows up....When we captured this German salvage hauler it was headed to Antarctica. Only thing the krauts got up there is industry. Steel works primarily. Thing was worn out, barrel was nearly smooth. No idea why it was in such poor shape, but we got two choices. The Germans are hurting and cant afford to maintain such a marvelous machine, or, Zwei was just a developmental unit getting it's field testing in. Gonna tell ya now, the Germans don't seem to be hurtin for resources.
>>1946590Board game "Scythe" art.
>>1947246>1940s vintage, pure Americana. 40mm cannon. wide nozzle flame thrower, Detroit steel and Pittsburgh iron. Might not be the fastest, but it'll take a hit. Sure as shit dont make em' like this anymore.
>>1948171>Here it is. classic example of soviet engineering. Keep slapping gear onto a shell until it's legs break. Once that happens, you put some treads on it, and keep going forward. While its sitting there? they keep pile on armor and equipment like its gonna be a damn bunker. You see onea' these? Just keep away if you are in anything light. not gonan be able to hurt it, and it can't hit you at range.
