Archive: http://suptg.thisisnotatrueending.com/archive.html?searchall=stranded+mech+questInformation pastebin: https://pastebin.com/vSXCNHAQYou are Crew Boss Levi, a mechanic in charge of repairs to Alex's mech. After finally reuniting with Alex, you see he is, in fact, still an idiot. You and your mech ended up somewhere other than outside the backwater base on a polluted world you called home.(You are also Captain Alex, Proxima Aquarii Federation, 4th Fringe Machine Infantry. When heading to a routine exercise, you were pulled to this world.)Now you're stuck in a world that's verdant, green, and full of life, where people use 'magic' and gods rule. Naturally, you should be cautious.You are a mechanic, a skilled civilian who is capable of repairing and piloting mechs to even creating weapons. You pilot the Hummingbird, a swift VTOL with a mech form based around sniping other mechs.You have recently been summoned by your idiotic ace pilot, who has managed to make themselves into a hivemind... With one part that is a small girl. You have recently recovered and secured the colony of Port Haller. You are now returning to the base after wasting some time trying to recruit elves.>continuing
>>2343508Though the custodian displays some trepidation upon entering the unknown lands, she seems to calm slightly once you land within the perimeter of the colony.It takes a while, but you manage to get her belongings to the Data Center. The girl manages to get Mirna's shrine set up in one of the empty rooms, without windows."I'm a caretaker of the shrine, so it's my duty to maintain it and the surroundings... But I can help you out a bit?" She smiles weakly to you as she finishes some minute details on the shrine, "I am Elise.">Custodian Elise has been added to the colony, filling a Research slot in administration. She can add mapping to the communications systems.It's a bit before the world fades to white. Mirna stands before you once more. "I'm so sorry for being abrupt with my request, Mera was incredibly close. I can grant you magical talent, and the knowledge of one spell as a reward, then I have some things to tell you...">Offensive magic: Lightning. It has utility usage as well, but it's used most to electrocute foes.>Defensive magic: Arcane shield. It creates an invulnerable barrier that blocks one blow of any strength>Support Magic: Arcane Analysis. Used to detect the flow of magic in things and find sources of power and weakness... cannot affect divine power.>what do you do?
>>2343537I vote we take the Arcane Shield
>>2343537>>Support Magic: Arcane Analysis. Used to detect the flow of magic in things and find sources of power and weakness... cannot affect divine power.>>2343551Alex has shield already.
>>2343537>>Offensive magic: Lightning. It has utility usage as well, but it's used most to electrocute foes.
>>2343559Voting for this, seems somewhat impractical, but will no doubt be useful when the time comes.
>>2343559Voting for this, just the right thing for an engineer.
>>2343559>>2343645>>2343699>>2343713You feel a power flow through you... and the knowledge of how to use your first and only spell: Arcane analysis."Now, I must tell you a few things... the first involves Alex too. if you and Alex enter a shrine at the same time, only one of you will be blessed. It's vital you go in one at a time." She pauses, "The second is that the trickster god owes Alex a blessing, and it's imperative you get to the shrine there before MEra gets wise.." She pauses, "And the last one... Mera has a champion named Daichi. He knows what Alex's mech looks like, and his male form too. Daichi... um, I'm not sure how to explain... he 'levels up' and gets stronger from completing tasks and killing things. He's incredibly dangerous... He just sliced apart a dragon last request. He also has a harem of powerful magicians and warriors, each dangerous in their own right. You are fine, but Alex MUST avoid that group,,," She frowns, "I think that's all, unless you have questions?">What do you do?
>>2343727Anything else we can do to get more strength from you?
>>2343727Is there anyone that would want to join the colony? Is there anything else I can help you with?
>>2343728thispaired with the asking if we can help with anything else from >>2343934
>>2343728>>2343934Both of these please
>>2344392>>2343934>>2343728"Is there any way to get more strength from you?" You try. Mirna shakes her head, "You'd need to visit another shrine, and if your luck is good, you might not need to quest."That's annoying, but it looks like shje can't help it. Oh well."How about colony recruits?" You ask."Alex has a couple mercenaries in the Meran empire. You could also purchase slaves there for a good amount of workers... But in the blightlands I feel you'll find better allies or possible recruits. Sadly, they are all at war, so you'll need to choose who you wish to help there... or look for other options." Mirna replies, "I'm afraid that's all our time for now." She smiles weakly as the world fades back in. You're at the data center.So there is a trickster god that alex is sure to get a blessing from, as well as easy-to-obtain recruits in the Meran empire, which is the closest... And a faction that is recruit-able in the blightlands... Also Mera has no issue with you or child Alex too, that's a good detail to note.>What do you do?
>>2344759BLIGHTLANDS PALS WHEN?we should probably go knab that trickster god blessing while we are on our journey away from the colony, then we can go back the elves, because they are bound to have remade the shrine by the time we are done with the trickster god.
>>2344759Maybe update everyone on the situation before heading out somewhere? Even if alex may know some stuff already reminders are always helpful
>>2344946>>2344972>>2345815You walk to the custodian, "Where is the trickster god's shrine?""Kierals City, just north of the shrine, along the river bend." She explains. You nod, heading back out. You snag the small Alex along the way."We are going to the trickster god to get a blessing for you, then one for me before heading to find that Acarit shrine from the elves." You explain. Alex merely nods, unable to tear out of your grip.The flight there is uneventful, and, following the guidance of the custodian, you find the city. It's walled, so you, regrettably, have to enter on foot.Walking into the city, you pass by the guards, and a large mech with a shield and spear.>roll a d100, highest roll wins.

>>2347657>>2347535>>2347519>>2347514>>2347507>>2347506No guards stopped you as you entered... there was no need to. You passed by a wall of wanted signs, the one for Alex's adult form stuck out. This was your first visit to a city outside the colony...It was chaos to say the least. The ground was either dirt or cobblestone, carts, drawn by horses, took up most of the paths. It was annoying to say the least. On occasion you'd spot enslaved humans... and nonhumans, doing grunt work. Brutal and squalid conditions. Alex was covering their face too from the varied smells your helmet filtered out.Disgusting and unsanitary.Finally you reached the more organized districts, with (almost) proper streets. The temple towered before you, varied clergy on the steps. You walked up to the entrance recalling what Mirna said.>only one character may enter at a time, either enter as Levi or Alex.You aren't sure what the trickster god will be like, but it might be best for you to go first before Alex. That way you can tell them additional questions you might think of to answer for you...>What do you do?
>>2348911I think we should send loli alex first. If anyone asks, we're bringing our kid to prayer.
>>2348911Send Alex first
Won't someone try to kidnapp loli Alex if we leave Alex alone in this shitty city?

You call to levi through the door, but no response comes.It's just too thick to hear through.Shrugging, you decide to head towards the inner shrine, unaware of a presence behind you.>roll a 1d100 to avoid the ambush.

Your struggles are in vain as another hand grips you. Your young body doesn't have the strength to fight against your attackers when they come from behind, and your muffled yell fails to get any help from Levi on the other side of that thick door! Your gun! You need to... Just...As you fade out in chemical slumber, you can barely hear."This is her, right?""Yeah, we'll be livin large after this! Let's get out of here before the stranger outside gets wise...">Your child body has been kidnapped! you cannot use it while it is in temporary coma.You are left in the colony, in your adult body, jarred awake from your nap on a hammock in your mech.

>>2352823Gear up as and head down thereLet your buddy know what happened
>>2352823Call Levi, let everyone know at the colony, gear up, head out.

You ask"Yea, one door to the side, checking... sonova-" You hear levi swear, "SHIT! Alex, they had some sort of rift they got through, I just saw it close!"Well shit. Your body was pulled through a rift, and you're mech's on the most wanted list over there... You have no way to find out where you are until that body wakes up! And Levi is alone over there!>what do you do?
>>2354469we cant know where our body is until they wake up. keep tyring to wake them up, and have levi get the blessing. we are right there anyways and if we cant get to the body right now, might aswell still snag a blessing
>>2354469Send Levi through to the blessing. Loli's gone now.
>>2354501this, we did everything we could, except give up, Rest in peace loli alex, your good rolls will be missed.
>>2354469Have Levi go ahead and get the blessing for now. We can figure something out once loli Alex wakes up.
Rolled 45 (1d100)>>2354491>>2354501>>2354599>>2354774You decide to put effort into waking up, but fighting the chemical will take your full attention.>You are now playing LeviUntil Alex gives you feedback, you're on your own. You decide nothing can be done but to get the blessings. Entering the shrine, the world fades to white, and you are greeted by... a cowboy."Well howdy, name's Ravais. Was hopin your small friend'd make it here but it looks like a couple a no-good mooks took em by surprise. So it's just you.""That's right.""Aight, so let me think on this, how I can help you an how you can help me, aight?""Shoot." You respond.>roll a d100+10
