Its only a day or so until the next match so fighting is right out. From your comfortable if spartan chambers you contemplate what to do to pass the time until the match begins.You were in your sleepwear, a thin shirt and boxers, while eating a large breakfast of sausage, eggs, and citrus fruits. Neil's wife sent the fruit which was very kind of her on account of the death match.You had informed Neil of some of your outstanding grudges and he had understood to some extent. Not that he ever would truely understand, nor would you want him to. You had built up a special hatred that only exists because you were betrayed and left to rot in the most insulting way imaginable. Neil didn't deserve to experience something o horrible, few people period deserved to experience that.Fom your comfortable leather seat, you tore into your breakfast before checking an Intinerary.What do you do? (you have time for 2 options)>Go to polaris (Specify where and what)>Hang out with friends/contacts (If chosen I'll specify who)>Go to artisans (Buy/commission gear)Polaris options (non green text options are thing you can't do at the moment)>The uppermost section. It's where all the visiting nobles spend most of their time. Real swanky place>---Go socialize with nobles. While it pains you to do so, making contacts is important, and the last time went well (about as much as it could).---look for a quick duel>---try to sell some of your excess titan equipment for some cash>The upper-middle section. Most of the stations operations including the tourney commision are there. Not much for fun, but there are lots of fans and officials here.>---Tourney office. See if they are planning any extra events or look at registration records to check out the competition.>---Go to one of the lounges where fans meet up to get something to eat and try to get a feel for the local fighting scene.---look at the betting pools and see if you can't make some money.>Lower-middle section. Shopping, regular restaurants and entertainment are all found here. if you want to mingle with ordinary people and forget about work you'll find it in spades.>---Go to one of the amusement parks. They have several types and there will be all sorts of people to meet.>---Go to a recreation park to play some friendly sport games or relax.>---Go out and do some leisure shopping. You have more money then you would ever need for mundane items anyways.>The lowest section. Filled with engineers, gearheads and sailors. Not much for high culture, but there's still plenty to do.>---Go to the arenas to race, or fight or just watch.>---Go look for some quality drink. There's another drinking contest coming up.>---Look at the workshops for some pointers and new ideas.
>>2555699>Go to Polaris>Lowest Section>>---Look at the workshops for some pointers and new ideas.
>>2555678Yep for the moment Algol is still a delta. Won't be long before that changes though.
>>2555699Hoe much xxx% percent wise would the Regenerating armor core be able to repair in the span of two days on the two thoroughly battered titans?Can we do a little research on Grimmly, or would that be pointless?>>2555705Fuck it. Voting for this. An extra edge in on Grimmly, that huge bastards.>>2555713Cost to upgrade to beta is 250 credits. A Titan I'm raw resources is 100 a piece.We have two spare titans.We have 70 credits in pocket change.It's good to be alive.
>>2555713Also can we do some research on that one impoverish noble house with the scrap Titan we fought in the first thread?
>>2555730>% repairedTo be honest I didn't really give a set amount but no the repair core won't be able to finish the job in two days or make significant progress, but they should both be repaired by the final match of round 1.>research on GrimmlyIt would be smart, you got his sats but he will have bulked up since then, it would be a smart move to see how you stack up.>>2555739Yeah you could. I didn't really build up the back story of junk man or his house but okay.
>>2555749Would looking up Grimmly or the impoverish Noble House take a lot of time?
>>2555785No I'll wave it. It won't count toward your time limit.

>>2555705>>2555730>you go to the workshops in the lowest section of the station>You go to the upper middle level to check up on Grimmly's stats>You research house Naut who fielded the junk titanStepping out into the array of lecture halls and labs in the lowest section you see the metal chambers are still alive with holographic presentations and the glowing churning might of assembly machines rings through the great chamber you're in.Searching from room to room for a lecture or demonstration to observe. Each room reveals leaps and bounds of scientific research and engineering. From presentations on the unique qualities of new particles, to new and improved synthetic metals and elements all being assembled in particle accelerators that him and glow with energy and atomic furnaces and assembly machines that work tirelessly machineing bolts, and plates for durability testing.What lecture do you go to?>The material modification seminar (concerns itself with durability and structural integrity, can be used to increase damage resistance and health on Algol)>Mega particle physics and mechanical forces lecture (concerns itself with upgrading weapon damage and giving additional traits for Algol )>Theoretical and applied super science (concerns itself with developg new and interesting titan equipment and weapons)

>>2555901>>2555902>>2555902>material modification seminarYou plop down into one of the seats inside of a material testing lab. The machinery is already at work and the engineering staff is already starting on the application and creation of new experimental alloys.You doggedly follow every utterance and copy the atomic and molecular models with as much fidelity as possible. Several hours later with a sample of a new ultra high tensile strength titanium you return to your fortress and pour over your notes.>roll 1d20 Bo2 beat DC:14Just so you know if you get a trait it won't take immediate effect for thr match, Rickert needs a little time to work it out, but you'll get it afterward.

>Looking at Grimmly's gainzAfter exiting your fugue state and coming down from your scholastic ecstasy at simultaneously making breakthroughs with both defense projects in less than a day you decide to look up how Grimmly has fared since last time you looked up his stats.Entering into the tall, glistening tournament building, you can already see posters of Algol and Ursa Major staring each other down. The posters read.>Algol vs. Ursa major: The battle of the beastsUou look around and you can see there are some children in the lobby with Algol actions figures fighting a toy version of the turtle kaiju and several children fighting over who should win between your titan and Grimmly's.Ignoring the merchandising that's probably illegal you take the elevator to the information floor and log in to a computer.>Horst GrimmlyStatusAge: 77Status: 1st round Pilot 15 pts.Titan: Ursa MajorClass: DeltaTraits-Titan:Unbreakable defenses (+100 HP)Rending Claws (fists are considerable more dangerous weapons) (2d10+5 melee damage, armor piercing)Massive Strength (+2 to strength rolls and melee damage rolls)Pilot:Veteran Duelist (+3 to all rolls)Experienced pilot (Bo3 for all rolls)Counter Striker (Auto attack when enemy misses in melee)Armament (6 slots)2 shoulder: 2x Railguns (2d10+3 ballistic damage, re-roll damage, charge attack, shoulder mounted)2 torso: 2x Rotating cannons (4d6+2 Ballistic damage, torso mounted)2 arm: 1x Twin linked assault cannons (2x 3d8 ballistic damage, re-roll damage), 1x Hokuto Shinken (3d10+5 melee damage, re-roll damage, armor piercing, Charge attack (2), uprgadable)Equipment (4 slots)1.

>Looking up house NautAfter you wrap up your assesment on Grimmly You take look at the profile of the junk man. For a time the memory of such a pathetic machine being entered into the tournament itched somewhere in your mind. House naut must be in some dire straits to be so desperate.>House NautA noble family owning a single planet in the Carcharodontos system. The house of Naut has been trod underfoot by rival families for years, and has attempted time and again to defend themselves and their planet from invaders. Despite their efforts they are frequently raided and humiliated by their neighbors, with no end in sight.They have entered their titan which they found derelict in a debris field in order to boost the families fortunes to help reconstuct the planet's industries and defenses after decades of abuse.
Returning to your fortress late in the evening you sleep and then prepare for the last day before the third match.What do you do? (you have 1 day left)>Go to polaris (Specify where and what)>Hang out with friends/contacts (If chosen I'll specify who)>Go to artisans (Buy/commission gear)
>>2556198>Go to polaris (Specify where and what)Let do a brawl. I hope they give trophies.
>>2556198>>Go to polaris (Specify where and what)>---Go to one of the amusement parks. They have several types and there will be all sorts of people to meet.
Rolled 2 (1d2)>>2556215>>2556210>roll off for last activity before match1d21= brawling and fightan2= Amusement park and fun times
>>2556422>Amusement park and good timesOn the following morning you awake and start your day. The preparations on Algol are complete and with only a single day before the match you peruse ads for activities on the station.Page after page of contests, challenges and various forms of merriment are all touted in their own sea of brightly colored brochures.What catches your eye are the brochures for several amusement parks. Inwardly you scoff at a man your age going to some childrens playpen but upon further examination there is more to these parks then children's attractions.Where do you go?>Middenland (A park based around ancient earth culture, and the fantasy sub-culture. Here are plays and reinactments from the time period as well as various activities and attractions that either explore real history or popular fiction.>Stranglehold (A park that touts action oriented attractions. Blostering fast rides, movie theatres that play the best actions vids ever made, and plenty of sports and combat themed activities)>Blitz complex (A cheesy park based on cyberpunk and old timey science fantasy. There are robot drones, and people in ridiculous costumes all walking ina park that looks like a city with enough neon and grunge to last a lifetime. Shoot outs with laser guns, high speed chases and too many people just hamming it up like There's no tommorrow

>>2556550>>2556539>Blitz complexYou decide that a little cyber noir and grit would be entertaining.Between the drone shooting courses, racing pods for chases, and a large area to goof around with the cyberpunks this seems like someplace you could have some fun in.The facilities and resteraunts are also highly rated so at least there will be good food.Do you invite any of your fiiends/aquaintances?>Neil Schultz (Friend, businessmen)>Sarah Schultz (Acquaintance, Businesswoman)>Samuel Maudlin (Acquaintance, Businessman)>Lawrence Fischman (Acquaintance, Businessman>Rachel Harper (Acquaintance, Titan Pilot)>Isaiah Harper (Acquaintance, Titan Pilot)
>>2556821>IsaiahIs he the one with the kid?
>>2556848Yup.Neil and his business associates also have kids just to point that fact out.
>>2556821>>Rachel Harper (Acquaintance, Titan Pilot)Then I guess.
>>2556899I’ll go for the lady pilot too
>>2556821>Isaiah Harper (Acquaintance, Titan Pilot)Why not. I guess it's time we try to break from that noble hating mold. If the rich guy decides to laze it up down here with us peons, then maybe he won't be such a bad guy.I got an idea on how we can profit from House Naut's doormatt-itus, and they us. People are constantly curb stomping their planet right? Well, what if they issue a formal challenge, to the death to several houses? We loan their house a titan, offer to tag team spitroast some of their enemies.We get a few titans and equipment out of it while their enemies suffer. Win Win?
Deep within your chambers you sit at your work desk. Silent, unmoving, unflinching.Internally, you roil like the sea before the arrival of a hurricane.Of all the people you could ask to join you, the first you considered was of course Neil. He's your best friend at this point even if your relationship was rather shallow, and his friends were good company.But two other names lingered in your memory. The Harper's. They had been polite, pleasant even when you met them. Isaiah even let you hold his firstborn.Now you had always known on the surface level of your mind that not all of the nobles were like house Arnheimer, some were at their core fairly normal people who came from money. It wasn't even that they individually wealthy, the wealth of their family was held up in their realm not in vaults. Some even were truely noble in their own way.But that fact doesn't change how you feel. Not internally, not in reality.You had spent 10 years constantly being pushed and prodded like meat and rammed into the grinder time and again, purely for the absurd and all too often pointless goals of the nobility.The things you had seen, and the things you had done just to have the option of walking away when the war was over. You would never forgive Arnheimer for what they did, and all their allies who merely followed along.But hate is a sword with no hilt. You may wield it to hurt your enemy, but chances are you will harm yourself in the process.There are some things you must face head on. "Hello? Rachel, this is Rickert." You can hear a voice mumble before a muffled ruffling leads into a recognizable voice."Hmmm. Oh hey. So uh what's happening? It's kinda early."Your hand shakes as you attempt to steel yourself to continue."I was calling to ask you a question. I had an idea of visiting the Blitz complex and I wanted to see if you and your brother would be interested in joining me."Rachel's voice becomes noticably clearer and more energetic."Wait really! I mean. Yeah! That sounds great! I mean, I'll ask my borther, but I would love to go!"Nefore you can respond you hear a muffled bang before footsteps and distorted yelling. A few minutes later and you get an answer."We'd love to go! Send the time and place and we'll meet you!"The connection drops and you breathe deeply. This should not be a problem. She seemed like a nice girl and her brother seemed like a decent man. This should be your first step in moving past this difficulty. You need to see them as people, doing normal everyday activities, eating, and enjoying a day out. You need to see their humanity.You wipe you forehead and feel sweat.Lord help you.Now for something I started considering when someone wanted to invite Rachel.Do you want to switch POV?>No. Stay with Rickert.>Yes. Switch to Rachel.This doesn't set anything in stone or have any long term effects, this just gives you an outside perspective on Rickert and develop his relationships a little.
>>2557210>Yes. Switch to Rachel.I am very interested
>>2557210>>Yes. Switch to Rachel.Could be interesting
>>2557252Might as well
>>2557250>>2557252>>2557282>POV Switch>You are Rachel Harper Young Titan pilot.You had went to bed last night thinking you would sleep in on your big four poster bed and do some light checks on Siegebreaker before the match.Face smashed into your pillow drool accumulating from a nice deep sleep and.....One of the most terrifying men you'd ever met asked you and your brother to join him in an amusement park.Definitely one of the strangest mornings you've had giant robot fighting be damned."Why do you think he asked us?" Your brother barely looks up from his daughter, gently lulling the baby back to sleep. You had unfortunately awoken the tyke when you barged into your brothers room. Clara nearly clubbed you for that."I don't know, you did all that research on him after he tore that noble apart in a deathmatch, so you tell me."What is your impression of Rickert?>He's a badass A legendary soldier and military leader and now he's a hard as nails titan pilot. Guys got accolades in badass that put action heroes in the vids to shame.>He's terrifying. He's got a long history of being ruthless and after the Nemean gulf war he's got a chip in his shoulder a mile long and a history of hating nobles especially Arnheimer. He's extremely aggressive in most of his fights and has shown a nasty temper in public.>He's kinda sad. Drafted to be cannon fodder, being shafted left and right before being left to the wolves. He's got a long career of taking up lost causes and a penchant for saving people that's especially stange for someone who comes off as being so cruel. To be honest you feel like giving him a hug.

>>2557409It seems we are at an impass
>>2557404>>2557380Since this option has the most votes this will go through>He's terrifying"He's scary. Really scary. The kind of guy who gets put in a history book with all the famous warlords and conquerors. I mean even when I first met him he seemed really uncomfortable. At first I thought he was just shy, but I get the feeling he hated my guts just talking to me."Your brother continues lullling his daughter into sleep, the baby slowly closing it's eyes and quieting its fussing."So why did you say yes? I mean if he's such a scary guy why would you want to spend the day with him? Also I don't appreciate you draggine me into this."Isaiah looks up to glare at you. His eyes tired from being woken up so early. He should just get one of the maids to do it, but he's adamant on taking a hands on approach with parenting."I mean he's scary but. I don't know, have you ever thought what would it be like to meet someone that accomplished? Someone with a real chance to go somewhere with the tournament? If nothing else I doubt he has ill intent. I mean as aggressive as he is he has a tendency to help people. Maybe he's trying to make friends?"Isaiah lowers his daughter back into her crib before grabbing you by your face gently."He's not the type of guy to go and make friends especially with us. There's got to be some else to this. So I'm going to make sure you're okay. Plus he may want a favor and someone like him could pull some heavy strings right?"You nod. You're brother was more experienced with this kind of thing. You'll follow his lead for now.>You arrive at the entrance of the park.Rickert is already waiting when you show up at the gate.When he sees you, he smiles. Its a shallow smile it doesn't reach his eyes. You have some experience with this expression, but with him there's an undertone that's heavier, more angry and intense then deceitful."Nice to see you got here okay. I already bought tickets. Just follow me."He's not dressed up at all as you follow behind him. Just a short sleeved red button up with some jeans and comfortable running shoes. he looks like somebody's dad. The fact that he's around a bunch of cyberpunk geeks makes it look even more bizzare.The gate cashier has the same opinion."Like dude, you really want to come in here? I mean you can wait outside while your kids come in."Rickert looms over the pale employee before glaring like he stepped in some dogshit. A scowl that made his blunt face and harsh eyes flare."I don't damn well feel like dressing up in leather and latex like some knobjob. If you got a problem with that than you can complain about the net, but let me through."His ticket gets scanned and he's ushered through faster than you think is allowable."Thank for your patronage please enjoy your stay!" The young employee blurts out his company spiel like a machine gun before servicing both you and your brother.When you reach rickert he gives you a holomap.(1/2)
>>2557637"Since I invited you along on such short notice I'll let you pick where we go today. My treat."You gently take the device from his hand and tentatively look at the display that comes up.Where do you go first?>Get some food (Write-in something that would be fitting in a cyberpunk setting, that's also not crap like onions green or whatever)>Go to a simulator and go through a chase scene like in the vids>Go to a sim shootout. You've been dying to try out some shooting since you got to polaris.>Go to a club. You're a youth and a cyberpunk club is the kind of place that interests the young and rebellious, also sci-fi nerds.(2/2)
>>2557702>Go to a simulator and go through a chase scene like in the vidsKinda want to choose club to piss Rickert off
>>2557702>Go to a simulator and go through a chase scene like in the vids
>>2557743Rickert is going to make a real life comparison so here we go
>>2557716>>2557743>>2557832>chase scene and fast times"Let's go to the Burns Identity ride. They have a simulator for car chases."Rickert nods in approval, or at least you think he approves."lead the way." He falls in beside both you and Isaiah, back straight with his hands in his pockets, scanning around. His gaze is razor focusing on any suspicious figures and on the buildings all around that provide a avenue for clear shots.You don't know if it's a habit of his or if he's just pranoid but you don't say anything.Your brother brother remains relaxed outwardly, but he's already on edge. His neck veins are bulging and the hair on his face is stiff.>You arrive and get a turn in one of the pods"Next please. Do you have any more in your party?" The technician glances around you to look for anyone esle.You shake your head. "No just us three."You open the car shped pod and waves his finger in the general direction of your group."Who's gonna drive, and who's gonna shoot?"You look to your brother and Rickert but both remain refrain from volunteering for driving."Your choice." Rickert offers a nonchalant thumbs up with his comment."Uh. Okay."What do you do?>Drive the car.>Get Rickert to drive.
>>2557928>Drive the car.We gonna pop sick donuts and drifts in the sim
>>2557943Or we crash because we ha e never driven
>>2557928>>Drive the car.
>>2558008That makes it just as exciting
>>2558022>>2557943>drive the car"I'll drive. You two take the guns. You ever see the Burns trilogy Rickert?"Climbing into the car the big man gets in the back seat and takes two guns hanging off the doors on bith sides of the car."Yes. Got repetitive but I liked it, plenty of good gunplay and tension, got a little out there sometimes but once they introduced the nano machine injections it made more sense."Isaiah climbs in next to you and takes the gun from his door."So what are supposed to do?" Your brother asks."The driver focuses on out running the police and gunners try to keep the cops off by shooting. You got 30 minutes to escape the city. You can put your arms out the window but not your body. Have fun."You feel the car move and lift upward. Gears and machinery whirs and hisses. Then you see projectors turn on and the fairly mundane room is replaced with a city scape at sundown. Impossibly high skyscrappers and mega buildings, and the general dirty landscape of a polluted industrial electronic settlement. Neons light and obnoxious holographic displays everywhere."3,2,1,GO!"You floor the car and all round you sirens and synth music blares.Darting through the air, the repuslor jets hiss, as you shift into a higher gear."Okay you-" Before you can tell the others to start working on the police, Rickert opens up with a storm of gunfire, and I mean a storm. His trigger finger doesn't stop the moment he starts shooting.Cop cars go up in flames as the hail of bullets blows their engines and as the cops inside get perforated and drop like flys in their vehicles.Isaiah takes a few experimental shots before, shrugging and putting his hand outside of the car."That's some nice wind out there, real crisp. Glad they didn't dimulte the smell."You punch your brother."Shoot you jerk! They're right behind us!"Isaiah laughs. "No there not!"And he's right. using your mirrors you see Rickert is dropping any car that comes remotely close.Okay looks like that is the bag at least for now time for some fanct moves!What stunt do you pull?>Power turn to lose the cops around a sharp corner>Narrowly pass through a small gap to lose the cops>Turbo this bitch and ride up a big pipe to jump over some buildings.
>>2558136>Turbo this bitch and ride up a big pipe to jump over some buildings.
>>2558136>Turbo this bitch and ride up a big pipe to jump over some buildings.Hey big guy, think you can let my brother have a few shots? Poor guy looks saaaaaad.
>>2558208Show our style! Clearly we are a good driver even being a noble
>>2558289No internet phone posting is suffering my ip keeps changing :(
>>2558154>>2558208>>2558289"Going for a big jump, brace!" Before Isaiah can complain you slam the accelerator and push the big red button on the console.The hellish roar of the engine and the screaming of the repulsor jets drowns out even Rickerts shooting as you turn to ride the pipe.Rocketing up the metal tube you reach the apex. Sailing through the air you catch the bright orange of the setting sun.Damn you should have made a one-liner.>Roll to land the jumpDC:10 roll 1d20+1 Bo2

>>2558342>Successhttps://www.youtube.com/watch?v=BJ0xBCwkg3EDropping from on high, you sharply turn the car and flare the repulsor jets to their breaking points. Your landing is not comfortable but it works. You work into a power slide that brings down a straight away to the city limits."Ah yeah! Time to turbo, TO THE MOON!""Lame!" Your brother drones."HAHAHAHA" You hear Rickert laugh hard enough to shake the car when slaps the inside of the door."Hey! Don't hurt the pod!" The technician peers into the sim to thumbs down.You are distracted enough that you veer off course slightly.>Roll 1d20+1 and Beat DC:12 Bo2 to avoid crashing due to distraction

>>2558463>>2558473>you fail so hard you win!Then you hit a car in oncoming traffic. Then you begin to spin out. With no other choice since you are probably going to crash, you just floor the engine and turn onto the spin.Rapidly turning, your brother braces himself while Rickert just throws both arms out the window and starts shooting while laughing like a maniac.This chaotic spin doesn't stop through.https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Uhy_e5wIX44You laugh and continue to spin. You don't care anymore. This is fun just spinning like this.You continue moving and you don't crash. Eventually you abruptly stop and the simulation ends. A big crimson YOU WIN appears overhead of the pod."Wow. Lucked out. The road was clear after that side swipe ended up taking out all of the traffic. You kept careening into more and more cars but didn't lose momentum and they kept piling into each other."You uneasily step out of the pod, sweating and panting from the tension. Isaiah steps out before poking your forehead."I drive next time. You suck." Your face flushes, but before you can jab your brother Rickert laughs again.Its a deep chortle, and he grabs his chest. he has a smile now. A real smile, that shows his teeth.When he locks eyes with you he stops. But there is an intensity there when he looks at you. Not anger, but maybe surprise? He straightens up before recomposing himself."Where do we go next?"You stammer before opening the map again.Where do you go?>Get some food (Write-in something that would be fitting in a cyberpunk setting, that's also not crap like onions green or whatever)>Go to a sim shootout. You've been dying to try out some shooting since you got to polaris.>Go to a club. You're a youth and a cyberpunk club is the kind of place that interests the young and rebellious, also sci-fi nerds.(fucked up on the food option, I was tyring to type Onions green. Don't think that's cyberpunk though.)Signing off for tonight, I'll comeback tomorrow by 2PM but I have church tomorrow so I'll have a dark period around 5:30 where I won't be back till 9PM EST.Have a nice evening anons.Discuss the quest and ask questions if you care to.

"Going to a club? I know you're hard up for male company, but that's the wrong approach to take."The flush at Rickert's jab. He remains stonefaced, but you sense that he's teasing you rather than being insulting."I know. I try to set her up with some nice young men but she never likes my recommendations." Your brother chuckles increase as your face grows brighter."Cut me some slack. I just want to see what it's like. All the pilot clubs are too high brow for me. Everyone's so high up their horses I always feel like their sizing me up for a dowry. It gets really old sometimes."You feel Rickert's piercing eyes on you immediately. Looking at him you can't tell what he's thinking, his face is inanimate but you get the feeling he's... doubting? Unsure? But soon enough he averts his gaze.Ugh. Does his intensity ever go down? He needs to relax. Hatred for nobles or not he seems to take everything you say and analyze it.>You reach a club called the system shockThere's no line but there's a staffer with a card reader to make sure you're legal.Once inside you take a nice deep breath and look around. The inside of the building looks like a gritty space station with fake cyborgs serving drinks and food.Steel riveted floors, cracked consoles, and dim lightling give off an abandoned vibe.The mass of people drinking, and dancing kinda ruins the atmosphere though.Rickert and Isaiah both take seats and order drinks, with Rickert downing his beverages immediately. Considering how huge he is, he probably won't get drunk even if he tries.You move out to the dance floor and try to look for group to squeeze inside. There are plenty of womenand men here although there's a group of sweaty shiny guys in a corner dressed in large leather trenchcoats and sunglasses.Deciding to socialize, you go try to infiltrate the masses of people and have a good time.Who do you try and dance/party with?>A large group of women in punk outfits>A group of men in cyberpunk cosplay>A mixed group of men and women in street clothes like you.
>>2560446>A group of men in cyberpunk cosplay
>>2560446>A mixed group of men and women in street clothes like you.
>>2560494>>2560551>A mixed groupYou pry yourself into a mass of fairly ordinary people near the edge of the dance floor, some move away in pairs to dance and others just clump together and make small talk.You would have went for the all male or female groups but based on how they're dressed you imagine they may be mostly interested in talking about the park and cyberpunk stuff.You settle on a group of people talking about their first impressions on the park. They must be new to the station like you are."Any of you go on the car chase sim yet?"You raise your hand and gain their attention."Yeah I did.""Was it any good?" You thumbs up."Jumped over some buildings and span out causing a huge traffic pileup that ended up with me spinning all the way to the finish."The assembled group shres their approval and you they ask you a few other questions before moving to another subject."Any of you guys got money on the Algol, Ursa fight?"A young man sighs before face palming."No but I should have, I saw that death match between that Volgunsen guy and that dude who impersonated him. He fucking got out of his titan just to kill the guy himself. Now that's fucking brutal."A woman shakes her head."Yeah, but I heard he's a pretty nasty guy, and personally it would feel kinda nasty taking his side. At least Grimmly's got a reputation for being a professional."The conversation remains on the tournament for a while but the subject returns to Rickerts upcoming confrontation several times. You admit that he's rough but he's getting the heel treatment on this one.Do you say anything in Rickerts defense?>Yes (write in)>No
>>2560621>Yes (write in)He probably had a good reasons if he got out of his Titan to kill the guy. A questionable, but pretty good reason. If it was just business, a flick of his titans wrist and it would have been over.
>>2560621>>Yes (write in)He could have killed that stuck up bitch but he chose not to. Doesn't sounds like a too bad of a guy to me.
>>2560621How about we say narthing and we get them to come over for a drink and then the big bad wolf can tell them way he was soo pissed off at the guy
>>2560631The look on there faces would be priceless
>>2560631I can support this. Story time with pappa Rickert.
>>2560621So when will you continue? >>2532496
>>2560706This coming saturday. Titanic tournament and sword and sorcery will alternate saturday to saturday.
>>2560631>>2560640>bring Rickert into the equation"You know Volgunsen had a good reason for hating that guy."The other patrons look at you but wave you off."We know the guy was impersonating him, but that's just cruel I mean he could have at least done so with just a little more restraint I mean come on."Once it becomes clear you won't get anywhere with this crowd you have an idea. You have snapshots of his past but the big man himself could probably explain his situation a little better."Wait a second I want to you to meet someone."You grin. Even if they don't change their minds their reaction will be priceless.>You bring Rickert over after explaining the situaton"Ladies and gentlemen I present Rickert Volgunsen."You present the massive man with a flourish.Those assembled pale a little and one of them starts looking around for an exit."Calm down. For pete's sake I'm not gonna do anything. I just wanna explain why I tore up the Arnheimer bastard."Rickert gulps down the beer in his hand and begins his tale."Okay so there I was waist deep in ash from a poorly targeted orbital lance and some smarmy asshole on the comms has the nerve to-."His tale of how much he hated Sigurd Arnheimer goes on for about 30 minutes. Between commenting on the former general's complete incompetence, inability to effectively relay orders, and being an all around turd Rickert sums up his last encounter with Sigurd in plain terms."Stupid son of a bitch had it coming. So you can post that on the net."He downs another beer, still completely sober despite drinking about a dozen during his rant.Everyone present is agape or a little sick looking. You don't blame them, some of the details about all the uneccessary civilian incinerations that happened as a result of a lazy call were grotesque.Rickert walks away but he pats you on the shoulder gently before he leaves.from beind you can hear him whisper."Thank you."Your interactions with the club goers continue and you even dance a little with some men, but soon enough you get bored and decide to leave.Your brother and Rickert follow, both decidedly tired looking.Looking at your holobracer its clock tells you its going to be evening soon."You two have preperations to make for the match?" Rickert takes out his bracer to exaimne the time.You nod, and Isaiah shakes his head."Need to get back to watch my kid, Clara will be wanting to be relieved right about now."Rickert thumbs up."Understood, I need to make some final fine tuning for Algol. Grimmly is probably going to be the toughest fight for me so far."Walking toward the gate Rickert taps your shoulder."Can I have a minute with you?"You freeze. looking up at the giant you notice his gaze is considerably softer. He normally frowns but he seems to carry a more somber expression on his face."Yeah go ahead. I got time."(1/2)
inb4 Rickert spills his synthetically processed Spaghetti
>>2560839Rickert extends his hand. You take it and you feel him firmly but gently shake it. Well more like he engulfed your hand but the sentiment was clear.He releases you digits and shuffles in place uncomfortably."This whole experiance has been uncomfortable. I've been nursing my grudges against Arnheimer for a long time now, and to be honest I haven't spoken to anyone for nearly a decade while I was building Algol. This tournament has been my first attempt to reintegrate since I retreated into obscurity."Gazing into you, his eyes pin you down. You hunker down a little bit."It's been a long time but there's a lot of my past that I'm not prepared to put to rest. And you porbably can tell that I can't stand anyone whose a noble, doesn;t matter if they've done anything to me or not."You sink in your shoes a little. You had already thought of that."I want to change. When I was fighting in the gulf my friends and comrades all had dreams, ambitions that they dearly held onto even as they died. I couldn't help them, and even with the war over, I couldn't save any of them. I lost everything I had and I don't need to tell you that it wasn't a lot to begin with. But I held on to what they taught me, and what it meant to have a dream. A future. They would have never let me live it down to be some recluse wallowing in my anger. So I want to be better."Rickert's eyes remain dry, but there's a crease in his forehead, and his frown deepens."I want to thank you for coming here with your brother today. Considering my reputation and history you went out of your way just showing up. I want to say that I'm sorry as well. When I first met you I was disgusted by just talking to you. I felt like I could barely speak without fighting the urge to hit someone. I asked you to come here with me because I want to move past this. I want to overcome this prejudice. Also thank you for sticking up for me you didn't need to do that."You start to tear up a little. This is way too personal."I mean. It's okay...just give me a little more time if you want to hang out again or with my brother. Okay."Rickert smiles, very very slightly but it's there."Glady.">You return home and Rickert leaves as well.>You are Rickert Volgunsen again>You have seen a noble not for their status or pedigree but for their humanity even despite yourself>You take a step toward exorcising your inner demonsI'm going to church for the evening so I'll post again for the load out selection for match 3 but then I'll be back around 9PM.

N/A DUE TO BETA CLASS EQUIPMENT>>2556161I'm looking at Grimmly's Loudout. Dude is a tough looking motherfucker. He's got a Bo3+3 odds to attack and a Bo3+5 odds to defend. I think our best best is guerrilla warfare tactics. We gotta attack the guy first and fly as fast as we can out of his effective range so we can recover. If our shock cannons manager to stun him then we gotta Alpha Strike him. The guy has no equipped jetpack so we'll always be out of melee range and will always outpace him.
>>2560934I got you player. I've been saving this since last thread.Now concerning what we should fill I'm out arms and holster, I'm thinking the Durendal, Fusion Lance and the Ice Blaster would be good candidates (disregard the 2x Double barrel laser cannon's. I realize their damage output isn't anything fantastic). The Durendal could be great for cleaving pieces off of his Titan. The Fusion Lance has great firepower and can bypass his armor (can it bypass equipment and trait mods that exceed the standard 100 HP?). The Ice Blaster's status effect would be great for reducing his capacity to defend himself.
>>2560918I have a question. This is supposed to be a one on one dual between Grimmly and us, correct? Would it be cheating if we threw another titan at him?
>Durendal (2d10+3 melee damage, two handed, re-roll damage, armor piercing, upgradeable)>Ice blaster (4d6 energy damage, two handed, freezing blast)>Fusion Lance (3d10+5 energy damage, two handed, charge attack, armor piercing. Piercing shot)Don't mind me. Just putting these here for reference.>>2560918By the way. What kind of bone is the Kaiju Bone Club? Is it from a greater Beta Class Titan? Is it one handed? Is it a spine?
>>2560918If we do normal attacks with the Durendal, do we attack once or twice?
>>2561122If you mean bringing in another titan to fight Grimmly at the same time then no, its not cheating, you merely decided to bet on beating him in this match, but the match is still a free for all.If you mean taking another titan and hitting him with it that is also perfectly valid.
>>2561899The latter. This is good to know.
>>2561899I'm voting for the Ice Blaster and Durendal. The latter will be Holstered.
>>2561869>>2561875>boneIt's a large leg bone that was taken from a delta class kaiju, it's two handed.>DurendalI forgot to add charge attack to its little stat blurb but it also gets a charge attack.Before I had two handed melee weapons do 1 attack, but since your fists can do similar damage already, Yeah from now on two handed melee weapons can deal 2 attacks.I mean with your strength you could realisitically swing the sword much faster now then before.

>>2562663I'm voting to disengage and find a titan to drop on him.
>>2562663>>Engage in meleeOrbital Impalement with fusion lance?
>>2562774>Algol is abbadonCouldn't it be kharn? I mean Abbadon has a pretty shitty trackrecord of following through.Also nice this is funny
>>2562752What? We don't have the Fusion Lance. We have the Ice Blaster and Durendal. The Ice Blaster is currently equipped.Are you sure getting into Melee range is a good idea? We're at less than half out health. If we miss in melee he get a a free attack. his hands do armor piercing. He'll soon have a +3 to attack again. There's also the Bo3. Or he could Alpha Strike.
>>2562752again what does that mean? You want to shoot from obit or stab him with a gun? Because I still think attacking without a little recovery time is bad. the dude can shred us if all his attacks hit.>>2562791I guess he could have been Kharn? I choose Abbadon because I though Algol was more black than red. Plus there's the claw hand and the sword.
>>2562802I was just referencing Abbadon's infamous reputation among the 40k fandom as having a tendency of failing at completing his objectives and a fan interpretation that he is an imbecile.
>>2562792>>2562802My bad, meant Durendal. I got confused. I think we need to end this fast as possible, and while both of us are built for melee, let's see if we can't one up him.
>>2562904I'll be honest. I can only see this ending poorly as we've less than half health. The Durendal has two attacks it can make in a turn, 2d10+3 melee base damage, re-roll damage, armor piercing, +1d10 from a trait, +4 dmg from another trait, +5 from the jetpack.That's two attacks at 3d10+12 re-roll AP. At it's very most it can do 84 damage ignoring armor resistance. And even at max damage he would still have enough hp (138) to wip us, assuming the sword attack hits.The guy has Bo3 +5 to his Defense.The math doesn't lie and I don't want to lose. How do you imagine attacking him with the Durendal will play out?
I mean with the Durendal you get AP Bo3 +2 which isn't bad, maybe the fact it's armor piercing will give us the benefit to, I don't know, nail him to the ground, cut off a limb, cut off a weapon.The one good cqc shot "i think" we have against the guy is somehow incorporating the Pugilist and Monstrous Strength traits to literally punch the head off his titan off. That's possibly a Bo4+4 vs his Bo3+5. But even then I'm not too sure it would work. Not with his massive HP pool.
>>2562931If we impale Durendal into his leg/arm/torso then we can render him unable to turn or something along those lines, and slowly beat him down. If we run I just see us getting gunned down, and I doubt we can beat him at range
>>2562961The Sleipnir Engines is an above average beta class jetpack meant for titans larger than Algol. I'm confident it can bring Algol out of range in less than a second. Sure if we impale the sword into his foot that might keep him from moving, but there's nothing stopping him from pulling it out. And to pin his torso would require him to be laying on the ground....which might require the assistance of another titan if you catch my drift.It would be a serious gamble. Bo3 +4/6 (depending if the Super Soldier trait stacks with Monstrous Strength) vs his Bo3 +3. we would only have a hairs edge against the guy. We stand to lose more in a turn then he does.
>>2562961>unable to turnWould be a real shame if his titan could turn 360 degrees from the waist...hold that thought.>>2562817Can Grimmly's titan do that?
>>2563015Yeah, not sure if these are Mechwarrior mechs, WH40k titans, Gundams, unsure if you can just lock them in one direction then lay into their back
>>2563017Yeah. I have a good feeling that one human like titan can't really do that.I feel like the next action we take will determine if we lose or succeed. Can you Imagine Grimmly's mech with the Sleipnir Engines? He'd be unstoppable.
Alright I'm back. And since you had some good discussion while I was gone I'll give you a rundown of your options.>Standing and fighting at range is not a great option.Grimmly is a better shot if only by a margin but he is far more likely to dodge your attacks then you are to dodge his. Combine the difference in your durability, trading alpha strikes will almost certainly result in your loss, save a miracle in dice rolling.>Melee is better but still really risky.Your attack with durendal are 3d10+12 and with a charge attack its 4d10+12, and it pierces armor (as in it ignores damages resistance). But Grimmly's defenses is still solid, and your ability to harm him comes with the risk of being of being counter attacked with his fist weapon and off hand. But the counter strike trait only gives him a reaction attack, not an auto hit. You can still roll to dodge him but once again with that fist and that off hand a single non-crit could nearly one shot you. He also gets his own turn to strike twice so the lethality remains.>running is smartYou can back off and recoup thanks to the regen gear. Grimmly won't expect you to come back healed, and my advice is to fight this out like a out-boxer in a boxing match. Your opponent is much tougher than you but you are faster and can recoup from damage provided you don't get knocked out. You have the luxury of kiting him.Right now you are already at a distance and you're mush faster, so you can safely disengage and then rest and start again.>Additional tid bit of adivePlay to your strengths, which is strength. If you strike you get a +4(I'll throw in the +2 as well since it is offense rather than a raw strength contest) and Bo4. If you kite and remain mobile you can wear him down. But all the same this will be dangerous.
>>2564006Forgot about the regen organ, let's definitely disengage and use that. Also, how much mobility to Titan's torso's have?
Rolled 2 (1d2)>>2564045Depends on the titan, they are all almost entirely unique creations with differing abilities. Grimmly though....hm. I'll roll.1d21=360 traversal2=180 traversal
>>2564054Can we still drop a Titan on him?
>>2564063Personally I would use one as a shield and a weapon, but yeah you can still do that.
>>2564068Yeah. I was thinking a little of both. We use a Titan as a living shield to either get a protection opportunity alpha strike him or get it close to knock him over with it.
>>2564006I would say we run away and hind but still able to see himMybe just take pot shots and keep raning lets that way he wont know where we are and when we are going to fight him.Sooner or latter his going to get pissed and do something to draw us out
So re-vote for options now with this new information that's been made available.
>>2564083You mean staffing runs where we attack, leave the area to recover, and repeat?I think if we did that Grimmly would be more inclined to charge his weapons on anticipation on our next return and try to fill us with all many holes as possible. The next time we come back to attack him it's gotta be something big. Alpha Strikes just aren't cutting it anymore. We take more than we can dish out.
>>2564106Something like that.Do it like 2 more times then we wait make a trap and when he thinks we going to pull the same shit we end up fly kicking his bitch ass face in.Hell we could drop our other robot to make a distraction and then butt fuck him
>>2564083Ok that might have worked if we equipped the sensor disrupterarray. But we didn't so not sure how well that could work. I'm also not sure if Grimmly's Titans range is greater or lesser an our own.Plus, pecking at him would be kind of boring.
>>2564095>Disengage and regen
>>2564125Uh, ok? So you want to do a strafing run twice, but on the third time we so it with a giant robot meat shield or a dropkick to the head? Did I get that right?Can we do the robot meat shield thing first?
>>2564133Losing would be even more boring.I wasnt there for the loudout I mean we only need to have him not paying attitudes for a short time.I mean we could also shot the ground around him to make a dust storm and then hit him when he cant see us to well then ran away and shot all the guns.Or thow a big ass rock at him and hit him after he ether doged or shot it out of the sky.Im justing ideas
>>2564095I'm not sure how much time would elapse per titan turn, but will we have recovered our HP by the time we find another titan?
>>2564144We could do it ether way, was just giving iedas on what to do.Il be fine if you guys ether make a better plan or move my ones around a bit
>>2564157So you're fine if we disengage to heal, look for a robot as a shield, then do strafing runs afterwards?
>>2564165Sure il be happy with that
>>2564153In this match there is enough time for 4 loosely defined combat encounters, I would say if you focused on taking down Grimmly it would take 2 or 3 of these segments.I would recommend trying to come up with a less direct approach. I'll add a>otheroption so you can apply the plans you are coming up with, I will also say that you could use the fact that Grimmly can't turn his torso all the way around to your advantage.>>2564141>>2564165>>2564175>disengage to heal and come up with a different approachany objections?
>>2564188>I would recommend trying to come up with a less direct approach.A less direct approach? Ok uh what if we, flew up into orbit with our titan and Co, throw in down on Grimmly's position, fly down before the other titan hits Grimmly, pin Grimmly's foot to the ground, then wait for the reentering titan to strike to pinned titan?How was that for indirect?
>>2564212There's so many steps to this it would probably fail now that I think about it.
This is a losing battle. At this range you can't exchange with Grimmly like this and win. He's too durable and too well guarded to be taken down with concentrated fire.In the haze of the battlefield Ursa major is only marginally damaged, and the crackling shield remains stalwart.Algol's system tell you that Algol's structure is compromised and that another big hit will down you.You throttle Sleipnir and retreat. Grimmly's glowing eyes follow you but you know he isn't nearly fast enough to pursue, and you're already at the maximum range for a gunfight.>you retreat sucessfully and regen your health.>Algol: 100HP>Ursa Major: 222HPWhat do you do?>Write in plan>These are also available>Alpha strike>Engage in melee>Strength attack (Grapple or Strike)
>>2564283Find a low tier titan that's not one of the guys on the top list.Break their arms and if they have a jetpack then remove it.Grab them by the back.Fly back and use them as a battering ram.Charge at Grimmly at max speed.Anyone got any other ideas?
>>2564283>>Strength attack (Grapple or Strike)Pin one of his legs into the ground with Durendal, then circle around him slowly beating the shit out of him
>>2564283>Strength attack Grapple him
No one else wants to do something fantastical like throw a Titan at him? It's just me?Bummer. If that's the case then I'll support this >>2564357 sort of.With the exception of grappling we try punching out the knees to his robot. Bo4+6 against an immobile foe while sticking to his blindside.>>2564401Grapple him how?
>>2564430He cant turn all the way around, you could try to run up from behind and then suplex him.
>>2564437Fuck it I'll support this.
Suplex him so he's half buried in the ground and start punching at Ursa Major's jewels.
So suplex?I got>>2564401for grapple and>>2564441for the suplex specificallyThat 2 and I think only you 3 are here so is grapple okay.
Our Bo3 +4/6 vs his Bo3 +5. This is gonna make or break us.

I think it is time to retreat, our regen means the longer this fight lasts the better it is for us. We should shoot him then get out of range and continue until he's scrap.
>>2564619Can we flee again or would you find that too boring to write? Any negatives for fleeing?
>>2564619I'm sticking to titan smashingRetreat
>>2564632Hey, Rickert is a soldier, there is no fair play in real combat. He'll kite the shit out of Grimmly until he wins, that's the kind of determined guy he is.It's completely in character.>negativesno negatices for fleeing just use your turn to flee and beat a DC
>>2564643Then if you are up for doing it, I'll vote for it.
>>2564619If we so what this Anon suggested >>2564621 (not that I support him) would we round have ended before we could kill Grimmly?>>2564632We'd probably lose some fans and time would could use to hunt other titans.Again. Not a fan of strafing run. Next time we come he'll be expecting us, cautiosly checking his sensors, and probably charging up all his weapons for our eventual return. It's an old trick.
>>2564648What other trick do we have to take him out?
>>2564648>fansNot important>other titansGrimmly brings in way more points then if just hunted some grunts.>roundYou'll have one more segment to combat before the match ends if you take the long way of fighting grimmly.>>2564654>trickTitan shield or you could perform a strike and shoulder charge him. You have a better overall roll with striking and a successful strength punch will send him flying and unable to fight back, you just need to keep it up or he'll get back up and fight.
>>2564662man I am so tweaked right now. I'm gonna make myself some tea in a bit. Yeah let's go with a fly by punch to the face. We'd have a better chance than strafing runs. A significantly greater chance might I add.
Well I'm still for the kiting meme,I just hope we don't run into another Titan while fighting Grimmly
>>2564671One round nearly killed us, twice. We can't take the punishment of a brawl.
>>2564678Hence fly by. Fly at him with a thrust powered punch. If we miss? Don't stop and keep flying away. try again.
>>2564686But if he grapples us or cripples our Titan then it's gg
>>2564701you have a point>>2564662Would Ursa have a chance for a counter attack if we fly by punch him?
>>2564713No, You're turn would be over and he would attack normally. His counter striker ability is for when he squares up in melee.
>>2564720would he still be able to alpha strike if we fly by punched him or started kiting him in strafing runs or what >>2564673 wants to do?
>>2564619Is his hand still in us??We could try to break it off and then shoulder cheack or kick him off, charged guns up durning then fire and ran away
>>2564730He would, but with only one attack he'll have to kill you in once turn which would be hard.>>2564731The hand isn't in you but that punch put a big crater in Algol.
>Play to your strengths, which is strength. If you strike you get a +4(I'll throw in the +2 as well since it is offense rather than a raw strength contest) and Bo4. If you kite and remain mobile you can wear him down. But all the same this will be dangerous.>You have a better overall roll with striking and a successful strength punch will send him flying and unable to fight back, you just need to keep it up or he'll get back up and fight.so it's either kiting or punching, both will still have Grimmly alpha striking. So it's a matter of flavor. Screw it, I'm supporting kiting. Let's get this over with.

>>2565411sorry, my poor memory is acting up again. you are correct.
The swing was too wide, his stance is overextended.You slip away with ease."Oh! Fuck! Come back here! Ah shit, I knew I should have bought those fucking thrusters!">You get away quickly enough to regen your health and return"Ah come on, where do you even get something like that!"You stare down Grimmly, his titan is a shadow of its foemr glory.

>>2565618>59-5=54 >42-54=-12>Grimmly is downContemplating the nature of this fught you realize that this must have been the closest you've come to losing in the tournament.Every obstacle so far has presented at most a moderate obstacle to your progress.But this man. He would have won nearly half a dozen time by now if you hadn't been able to regenerate, or escape with sleipnir.You turn in the air and kick against the ground. You arc in the air and this sudden change in approach is enough to catch your opponent off guard.You slam you fist into the bear titan's head and it goes down, for the last time.Looking at your fallen opponent you sigh. Your exhausted. What made this match was endurance, and in a straight fight Grimmly would have won. But you had speed, and the sense to wear youy enemy down. "You're a tough son of a bitch Grimmly. You nearly had me more then once."The bear like titan grumbles."Yeah. Yeah. Geez I gotta slap some boosters on this thing. I could barely see you half the time when you were coming at me."But soon enough you recieve the signal from Grimmly. He yields."Well you got me. Can't say It wasn't earned. You may have been running to heal, but I haven't met anything that could stand to take the big fist at full charge without dying on the spot. Especially with so little armor. So eh makes me feel better about losing."You doubt that."Really?""Fuck no this sucks."You leave Grimmly be. At least he was a good sport about. The fact that Templeton whined and then cried when you beat her still repulses you.>You have beaten Horst Grimmly>You win 10+30 credits from your bet>The tournament staff allocates 10pts for your victory (1/2 of grimmly's points points which is 20 now not 1. Normally its 1/4 but its later in the tournament)>You get 1 piece of ransom from Grimmly after the match.>There is enough time for one more combat.That's enougn for me tonight. Lots of good participation from you anons. have a nice evening.See you tomorrow, at 3PM ESTwe'll finish up with the third match and end the thread then.
>>2565668see you tomorrowHey guy. Take a look at this.>Neil pushes another button and a third titan appears, this time a odd looking camo colored quadriped titan with no true arms, just lots of guns and missiles.>"This is the Thunderer and it's pilot is a guy named Ryuji Akashido. His Titan is built around just hammering you with long range fire all day long. Not much for close combat, but it's surprisingly agile. From what I've seen he's a bitch to fight if you rely on melee, fucker just won't stand still or let anyone get close.">Ryuji Akashido pilot of the Thunderer (The four legged armless titan that specializes in fighting defensively and ranged combat)>Ryuji Akashido (odds 1:1)>Neil moves onto the fourth combatant, a rather undersized titan colored yellow and green with a eagle theme. A spear and oversized thrusters with missile packs are its visible weapons.>"This is Aquilon and it's pilot is Robert Highhall. This guy is all speed. His thursters basically let him fly and run circles around you. Spray lots of missiles and stab you in the ass with that spear of his. I can tell that his titan won't take a lot of punishment, but he'll be on you before you can get a chance to take shots at him.">Robert Highhall pilot of the Aquilon ( The smaller titan specializing in extreme mobility and rapid ranged and melee attacks)>Robert Highhall (odds 1:1)>He presses a button and two titans appear. One is a combo of grey and red and the other is bright gold. The grey/red titan seems to be loaded for bear with guns and has a nasty looking handheld energy cannon. The golden one looks weird and has an extremely accurate and detailed human face and body. Its weapons are more melee oriented. It has an absolutely ridiculously massive hammer and on its back is a sword and shield alongside torso mounted weapons.>"These two are bitter rivals. The grey guy is Arthur Dorn in his titan Eternal Fortress and the gold guy is Ares Eustamachus in Priam. Both excel in their method of combat and they got some really kickass titans.>Arthur Dorn pilot of the Eternal Fortress (a very tanky titan armed with lots of ranged guns) (rivals with Ares Eustamachus)>Arthur Dorn (odds 1:2)>Ares Eustamachus pilot of the Priam (The wierdly human looking titan that excels in melee combat) (rivals with Arthur Dorn)>Ares Eustamachus (odds 1:2)These are the remaining four all star titans we have yet to fight. On the Chance that any one of these four are still alive, would you guys want to go after them? I kind of want to see if we can get the jump on both Arthur and Ares. Not sure how well that would work out for us though.
>>2565668Did we get to keep any of the bones of previously killed Kaiju? Their bones, hides, scales?
>>2566586I know we can, not sure if we have.
>>2566644I brought it up cuz I thought it would be metal to make a tabard for Algol's made from the hides and scales of the two killed Kaiju. Maybe even include their skull attacked to the tabard or crotch area like Kharn the Betrayer.
>>2566670Who was the one that killed Kharns best friend? He was pretty cool for a guy that you hate.
>>2566683Erebus I think?https://1d4chan.org/wiki/Kharn
>>2566716Yeah that's it
>>2566586You have the adamantine scales from indra and a huge shell from the gamera expy, the scales you could easily turn into a badass tabbard. You also have bones that aren't good enough to be made into weapons but you could mount Indra's skull.The turtle's head got popped though so that's a moot point.
>>2567115Eh. The thundery ones' skull should be enough for now.
>>2567115I have a vage idea of how to decorate Algol with bones
Flying across the desolate sky, you search for prey. You gauge that there's enough time for one more scrap, but you're not sure of what to look for.Grimmly was hard enough but with the regen core you're still in fighting shape, so it wouldn't be out of the question to try and quickly take down one of the contenders.What do you do?>search for a contender (who?)consult this>>2565717>Look for some rank and file targets (specify how many, 1, 2, or 3)
>>2567153It's nothing too elaborate or fancy. It's pretty much alighting the bones of the dead Kaiju to where they roughly should be. Ribs and spin on the torso. Bones attached to limbs. I don't think the turtle gave us much in the way of bones besides the shell.>>2567150As for choosing our contenders? I'm not sure how much leeway you'll give us as who and how many you'll let us fight, but here's my list.#1) Sneak attack Arthur and Ares (probably a bad idea)#2) a pro titan pilot fighting a bunch of other titans#3) Any of the four remaining all-stars#4) as many transfer as we possibly can at once
>>2567150>>search for a contender (who?)Robert Highhall
>>2567150>Look for some rank and file targets, 1, 2
>>2567189I'll support that
>>2567192Aquilon? The guy with the titan mini? If he kept to his theme at Niels detailed explanation all those weeks ago, he should still be all about speed. That tiny tot will be probably hard to hit, and if it remained small I'll assume has slightly below average HP.Besides being smaller than the average Deta class titan, and on the assumption he's using a beta class thrusters, he should only have two equipment slots left. If he still has a spear of melee weapon I could guess the second equipment is a set of magnetic mitts.Not sure if he can fit missile launchers on the torso of his Titan.
>>2567189How about every time we kill a monster we take a pice and add it our robot so each pice becomes a kill mark
>>2567233Like the skull attacked via a length of chain?
>>2567239Or like a cap thingy.Ether wayAlso we need a theam song to play when ever we start to fight
>>2567150>>2567189>#2) a pro titan pilot fighting a bunch of other titans
>>2567262Very nice>>2567264Are we going to surprise fist the pro guy thrn gtfo?
>>2567272RKO pro pilot, then finish off the fodder
>Surprise attack one of the contenders while they are already in a fight and then mop up the grunts.Is this okay?>vote for which contender to look for
>>2567275>Robert Highhall.If we surprise attack the guy who likes to stay away, I think he'll have a hard time dodging it
>>2567280Actually it's the Asian guy that keep his distance.
>>2567293No, he's the guy with only guns
>>2567297The asain crab and the bird are both probably hard to hit. Which one do you think is loaded with guns?
>>2567316>Ryuji Akashido pilot of the Thunderer (The four legged armless titan that specializes in fighting defensively and ranged combat)>Robert Highhall pilot of the Aquilon ( The smaller titan specializing in extreme mobility and rapid ranged and melee attacks)

Rolled 2 (1d2)>>2567374
>>2567376>you decide to look for AkashidoWith your speed, Akashido will struggle to keep his distance, without any notable melee abilities, you can close in and hammer away without much effort. The problem will be that unlike Grimmly, Akashido will probably be fast enough to pursue you and with a large number of ranged weapons, and your lack of heavy armor this may be difficult.When you find the quadraped titan engaed with 2 others, you find your opening. The torrent of missiles and lasers from Thunderer is entirely focused on wasting the two grunts.What do you do?>Write in plan>Alpha strike>Engage in melee>Strength attack (Grapple or Strike)

>>2567848Akashido had 8 points, so you got 4 from him, his score was 4 during the first match but he got knocked out by Highhall during the second and racked up 4 more during the third.One grunt titan had 4 pts, and the other had 2 pts for 2+1 for beating them.
Returning to your fortress you examine Algol for any damage or abberation that may have occured due to constatly taking damage and regenerating.Looking at the internal diagnostic you see that once again Algol's internal workings have grown stronger. The all out war you waged with Grimmly required every scrap of strength Algol possessed even to the breaking point, so you're not surprised that he's evolved.>Trait gained!>Titanic Strength (+6 to strength rolls, can use weapons and equipment from a larger titan category)Retiring to your bedchambers you decide to sleep for a full eight hours. After all of the fighting today and the emotional experience the day before, you feel the need for more substantial rest.Lord knows that the bracket tournament will be trying, and then there's the final match to think of. It won't be long before everything begins to accelerate. But that is not an immediate concern, you just need to rest.>Thread endThank you anons for participating. Always good to have you all voting, rolling, and posting.Remember this saturday is Sword and sorcery, and on Saturday the 26 we'll be back on Titanic Tournament.The thread of course will still be up and I'll check in on it, so feel free to post questions or comments on the quest.
Now we can dual weird weapons or be a dirty spear chucker
>>2567999Can the holster hold a beta tier two handed weapon?
>>2568435Yeah. Rickert would probably get on it and modify the holster himself once he realizes he can wield Gungnir now.
>>2568481Can Gungnir be modified to have hooks, so if we use the magnetic mitts it's will pull Gungnir and the titan it is impaled to? Or at least drag us closer to said titan?

That being said wedging the spear inside of your opponent is sufficient to drag them to you if you have the magnetic mitts.>lootI'll add that tomorrow>twin linked and the fist of the north starBoth are one handed, the twin linked just means the weapon is composed of two of the same weapon fused together
>>2568602>Hokuto Shinken>fist of the north starHow did I not see that
>>2555677Would adding the Thunder tail Blade to Durendal increase its size, weight and strength requirement to weld it normally or dual weird?Can the two Double barrel laser cannon's be combined to form a quad barrel linked laser cannons?Also same question for the two Long barrel laser cannon's.Are some of the core components of Tusk the Bone Giant made of actual Kaiju bones? If yes, then by how much?
>>2568771>thunder baldeIt would increase the size and weight but wouldn't impact your ability to wield it in any way. You are of sufficient to wield it.>quad laser and twin linked long barrel lasersYou could. Also just because quad laser made me think of it.https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=TNYMxgNKIEU>core components of Tusk being Kaiju bone.Yes the internal skeleton of the titan is composed of kaiju bones, so about 25%

>>2569390>Yes the internal skeleton of the titan is composed of kaiju bones, so about 25%Would we have to remove those boney parts if we were to break down Tusk and incorporate him into Algol, or would we keep the boney bits?>>2569424Can the Titan blade be broken down to be incorporated into Durendal?
>>2569441>BonesYeah you could keep them as loot after you break down tusk>titan bladeNo, it's not made of any special materials or a particularly well made weapons, adding it would just add on some additional mass without much benefit.
>>2569424The giant fist from GrimmlyThe Twin linked Laser destroyer cannons from the crabHeavy autocannon from grunt 1Long Barrel laser cannon from grunt 2Those are my choices

>>2569813their are two pairs of twin linked laser destroyer cannons. you can only have one.
>>2570030What if i want both so we can turn it into a qud gun??
>>2570031You mad man. If we could that would be great, but the rules only allow of to take one from each titan we defeat. else we'll have to buy it from him or an artisan.
>>2570033Y not trade him something for it or tell the other guys we beat if they pay for the gun we wont take there shit
>>2570211neither of those options sound worth it.
>>2570220We would just be trading him some loot we would be getting for free or someone pays the cost for us wich is free.We not going to get them to spalt the cost one of them will pay the full cost

Some old stuff:>Tail blade into a titan melee weapon- 30 credits weapons stats would be (i changed them a little since the last thread) 2d10+str+energy damage, armor piercing, shield piercing.What's the cost to mod this to Durendal?>Fangs-don't know what kind of weapon they could be used for maybe teeth for a chain saw bayonet for the laser blaster? but something like 10 credits for the teethI'm suprised I didn't think about using the teeth for the teeth of a chainsword.>Lightning spikes-10 credits to turn into arc launcher type weapons nothing special (1d10+energy damage weapons)>Thunder cannon organ- also can't think of a good weapon idea, but the cost for it would 10 or 15 credits>thunder cannon as a head mounted weapon>I actually like that idea a lot. Algol having a built in weapon that he shoots out of his mouth. An extra ranged weapon like that would be nice. I'll consider that. You don't have a head weapon slot by default but it's possible.>upgrade to a beta class titan>250 credits and with that upgrade you get base 300HP, 11 weapons slots (4 shoulder,3 torso, 4 arm mounted), You can one hand the two handed weapons and mount single handed weapons to your arms, and use an entire other class of two handed weapons (those are some big fucking guns), and on top of that you get a big bonus for strength checks against delta class titans.>Monster teeth bite attack, monster flesh face, bio mechanic stomach battery>All interesting ideas, I'd say that you could pull all of these off. As long as it makes some sense and doesn't break the game I'll go along with it.>Heavy duty capacitor upgradeCost: 20 credits, Fusion organProduct: Fusion engine (+4 energy damage for energy weapons)>Super heavy armor upgradeCost: 30 credits, kaiju mega shellProduct: Mega titan armor (+100HP)>regen organ equipmentcost: 30 credits, kaiju regenerating organProduct: Regenerating armor core (+10 HP per turn in battle up to your base health)>Breath attackCost: 15 credits, plasma flame breath organProduct: Titan trait- Devil breath (3d6 energy damage, usable in melee combat)>mouth and teethCost: 10 credits, kaiju fangsproduct: Titan trait- Devil Fangs (1d8 melee damage +melee bonus damage)>Hammer upgrade (spikes + thunder cannon)Cost: 50 credits, 2x lightning spikes, thunder cannonProduct: Master crafted thunder hammer (named weapon) (3d10+melee bonus+energy bonus damage, re-roll damage, armor piercing, paralyzing charge, charge attack, 3d6 energy ranged attack)
>>2570525Thunder cannon organ how have no one made a joke about make a thundercock cannon
>>2570525>cost to mod Durendal wit Tail blade40 credits, slightly more than just turning the tail into a sword on its own.
>>2570600Y not just mod it and use it as a tail? Would free up the handsFor a thundercock hammer
>>2570600What would be the new stats?>>2570625Upgrading the sword would be another more cheaper than the hammer, and it would probably out pace it damage wise.
>>2570686>stats for new sword (new name too)>4d10+10+str bonus+energy bonus melee damage, two handed, re-roll damage, armor piercing, shield piercing, charge attack (2), upgradeable)
>>2570739Do you have a picture of algol and also can we customize algol?
>>2570841Alas I am not a drawfag, and cannot draw a picture and looking images on google hasn't brought up anything that would really match up with the description of AlgolYou can customize Algol, in addition to weapons and equipment you can change Algol's appearance if you wish, several players have already talked about adding extra aesthetic materials and gear such as a badass tabard made of kaiju scales and kaiju bone ornaments.
>>2570899What Trait level of strength do we need to throw a beta tier titan?
>>2571698Right now you have sufficient strength to do so. but you would take a -4 penalty while making the roll.
>>2571715Do we now have 100 or 110 credits?
>>2571896110 I'll be generous.
110? Smashing! Do we have more time than the previous round to look for Credits and work on Algol? I'm going to assume that's the case.We have two titans and we only need to reserve 50 Credits for the upgrade. That leaves us 60 credits to work with. That's enough for the Durendal upgrade(40), making Algol a badass tabard made of Adamantine Scales (would that cost us anything or could we make it ourself?) and a set of mouth and teeth(10).Some time ago I mentioned the possibility to help house Naut for some sick gains?In the Swords and Sorcery Quest, we left off after learning about how the necromancer and the evil forest people we working together and how we're on our way to tell the towns folk to make a raid party?
>>2572695>time for building stuffYeah, this period between matches is longer due to the tournament>The tabardIt would cost nothing.
>>2572871What time and time zone will you start Swords and Scorcery?
>>25736491PM ESTJust so you know I live on EST, so I'm not going to use another timezone.
