In the far future, biotechnology advances by leaps and bounds, creating stunning achievements in medical, civil, and military applications. Illness becomes a thing of the past, and genetic modification is as commonplace as cosmetic surgery.However, like all great advances, unchecked progress and experimentation has led to abuse and corruption. Ultra powerful megacorporations that monopolized the latest biotech have risen to be the great powers of the age, waging secret wars of sabotage, espionage, and deceit to get ahead of each other.In order to fuel their rampant growth, megacorps develop lethal diseases and viruses, horrific bio-organic abominations, and ever more exotic genetic modifications to both sell to the highest bidder and unleash upon each other.The rampant proliferation of bioweapons, and the need to contain them, has given rise to a new profession, the BIOWEAPON HUNTER.---Now with a new OP!Twitter: https://twitter.com/MercCommandArchive: http://suptg.thisisnotatrueending.com/qstarchive.html?tags=Bioweapon%20Hunter%20QuestOther Quests: https://pastebin.com/eTUmEmRb---You are LEWIS, a Hunter specializing in hunting down biological threats with your T-Doll companion HK!Currently, you were with Lucina as you were both going through the factory's armory, looking to see if there was anything useful you could bring. "You know, for a mad scientist, your mom's armory seems to be pretty... mundane." You frown as you inspect the racks of weapons. Sure, there was everything you would expect. But it all just seemed so... normal."I'm a bit surprised, too." Lucina admits. "But then again, my mom's special projects have always been... finicky.""Is that so?" You say as you further inspect the offerings. Well, you at least still had the Harkonnen heavy rifle that HK had brought. "Think she'd loan anything to us?""That depends if you're willing to ask her." Lucina shrugs. >Ask Egan for additional equipment.>You think you can work with what you have.>Other
>>3498933>>Ask Egan for additional equipment.

>>3498933>Ask Egan for additional equipment.Time to see if there are any game changers. Maybe Egan could make us a weapon using some of Lewis' crystals?
>>3498959Lewis can make himself a weapon using his crystals.
>>3498933"Doesn't hurt to try." You reply, glancing at all of the stocked weapons around you."Right, let me call her over." Lucina nods."That won't be necessary." Auntie Egan says coolly as she strides into the armory, her hands casually tucked into the pockets of her lab coat. "I figured you'd want access to something a bit more... exotic.""Were you spying on us?" You raise an eyebrow."No, I just know you're not all that different from your mother." Egan replies simply. "I can provide some assistance to you, but I'll need a favor in return.""We're trying to clear Lewis' name and you want a favor?!" Lucina gapes."This technology is highly experimental and it would be incredibly inconvenient if it were to be destroyed or fall into the hands of others." Auntie Egan narrows her eyes ever so slightly. "A risk like that deserves a benefit.""All right, so what errand do you want us to do, then?" You ask, deciding to humor her."I want you bring SOPMOD back to me. Or at the very least, her telemetry data." Egan says. "You can't be serious." Lucina blinks."I'm always serious when it comes to my work." Auntie Egan responds in a deadpan manner. "SOPMOD's experiences are necessary to complete my A2 project, and Umbrella hasn't exactly been returning my calls.""Ah, I get it." Lucina grumbles. "Always some secondary motivation with you.">Fine, you got a deal.>Engaging SOPMOD is asking for too much.>Other
>>3498996>Fine, you got a deal.
>>3498996>>Fine, you got a deal.>>OtherIF we determine it's viable and possible. We're not going to risk ourselves to get data if the entire USS is about to be up our ass, or we're fighting a bunch of tyrants, or Wesker takes off his sunglasses.
>>3498996>>Fine, you got a deal.So do we have an extraction tool, or something for that?Also, how are we going to get her attention? Take off whatever disguise to solo Lewis out?
>>3499001Knowing SOPMOD, it'll be something akin to "Hey, can I have your telemetry data." then she says sure and we go home.
>>3498996>>3499000This sounds like the best option. SOPMOD isn't someone we can just yoink, but maybe just maybe we can entice her with this whole mystery we're lodged in. Wait do we even know if SOPMOD is on site or is this a down the road we'll owe her?
>>3499024If she is on site, I'd expect she'd be with the other Umbrella T-Dolls for some training exercise or something.
>>3498996>dealIs there a master over ride we can use on her? I really dont want to fight her if i have to.
>>3498996"Fine, you got a deal." You sigh. "But we'll only do it if it looks like we've got a chance to.""Don't worry, I've already installed specialized modules in ST-AR and HK that will help make that easier." Auntie Egan nods. "Now, I think I can let go of two items for you. What do you think you need?"Hm, you figure for your first item you could use...>A weapon>Some armor.>A gadget.>Other
>>3499053>Some armor.Maybe we could crystalize over it as an enhancement?
>>3499053Give Goo Gun and Companion Juice.
>>3499053>>OtherSomething that'll make this op be able to go quietly until we decide to go loud. Or the dice gods start making noise
>>3499053"How about some armor?" You suggest."Hm, I may have some items that may work." Egan nods. ADAMANTIUM WEAVE: Through some secret proprietary process, adamantium is extruded into fibers and woven in an extremely light yet extremely durable armor. Will provide protection against virtually all hazards with minimal impact to mobility. THERMOPTIC CLOAK: A cloak made from a nanomaterial with light altering properties, the thermoptic cloak is able to bend light around the wearer, giving the impression that they are invisible and making them difficult to spot visually. CRYSTAL PLATE: Created from crystal pried off the hull of a captured Companion starship, this crystal plate is extremely dense and near indestructible. It also appears to enhance the latent magical abilities of the wearer. However, the plate is extremely heavy and should be worn with caution.>ADAMANTIUM WEAVE>THERMOPTIC CLOAK>CRYSTAL PLATE
>>3499111>>CRYSTAL PLATEwe're strong enough for it
>>3499111>CRYSTAL PLATEEither way, we're going full Warframe.
>>3499111Hm, well, the crystal plate seemed to be very useful, especially if it would enhance your own magical capabilities. Plus, with your strength biomod, the extra weight shouldn't be that much of an issue for you. That left your second item to be...>A weapon>Armor>Gadget>Other
>>3499147>>A weapon>Inb4 Crystal warhammer
>>3499147>>GadgetBecause I want a cool piece of tech even if I know the vote is going to go with this being an assault.
>>3499147>Armor desu I'd rather be asking for the adamantium weave for Lucina
>>3499157Agreed, though I suspect that she has her own equipment planned out. Maybe something that shows off some of her assets.
>>3499147"What do you have for knocking stuff down?" You ask Egan as you hold the crystal plate in your hands, testing its weight. Didn't feel too bad right now, though it felt oddly warm to the touch."Ah, we have a few things." Egan nods to another table. "This was originally meant to arm T-Dolls with, but regular people should be able to handle them as well."GOO GUN MK2: An improvement over the previous generation of goo gun, in addition to general increases in range, accuracy, and stability, the proprietary paralytic contained in every goo round also has the capability to short out T-Dolls and other electronics. GAUSS RIFLE: An assault rifle that fires projectiles via electromagnetic force rather than chemical propellant, the gauss rifle is a relatively silent yet deadly weapon that can fire rounds at high velocity. However, it requires a constant power source to function, making it more effective in the hands of a T-Doll. POWER FIST: A heavily modified exo-arm with an armored gauntlet, not only does this fist enable high strength impacts, but also contains a capacitor that discharges a powerful burst of electricity upon contact. >GOO GUN MK2>GAUSS RIFLE>POWER FIST
>>3499206>>GOO GUN MK2Too bad the Switzerland name didn't stick.
>>3499206>GOO GUN MK2

>>3499206"Hmmm, the Goo Gun looks pretty handy." You say as you pick it up. It was a bit heavier and bulkier than a regular handgun, but not so much that wouldn't be able to handle it. "A favorite of your mother's." Egan nods. "Will you be using it as your personal sidearm?"Hm, you figure it would be best to be in the hands of...>You>Lucina>HK>ST-AR
>>3499254>>LucinaGive her something neat to compensate that we're set up as a tank.
>>3499254>>LucinaJust in case if we ever need to go into the ACTION focused parts of the Survival Horror genre with impractical choreography.
>>3499254"Here Lucina, you should use it." You hand the Goo Gun over to her. "I think it would do much more good in your hands.""Why.... thank you, Lewis." Lucina smiles as she accepts the weapon. "Looks like we should start getting dressed for the occasion. Get geared up and meet me back here in half an hour.""Understood." You nod as Lucina spins around and heads off for one of the changing rooms, ST-AR following close behind. "Lewis, I have a query." HK speaks up."Yeah? What is it?" You turn to her. "Do you have any suggestions for my loadout?" HK asks. "I brought the Harkonnen heavy rifle and Typhoon grenade launcher system with me, but considering the nature of this mission, such large and loud weaponry may not be ideal.">You're right, we'll leave the heavy stuff at home for now. >We should bring it just in case. >Other
>>3499303>You're right, we'll leave the heavy stuff at home for now.

>>3499303>>You're right, we'll leave the heavy stuff at home for now.I forgot this runs today! Also, I can't believe the stealth cloak didn't win for a sneaking mission! combined with the goo gun for fast and effective non-lethal disables, it would've been the Solid Snake setup!
>>3499344Everyone else seems to want to go full Warframe for this. I expect the stealth aspect of this op to be negligible.
>>3499303"You're right, we'll leave the heavy stuff at home for now." You nod. "Understood. I shall bring the minimum required equipment, then." HK nods. >Ask HK about those new modules Egan installed in her. >Better go get ready yourself.>Other
>>3499357>>Ask HK about those new modules Egan installed in her.What did she do to you and where did she touch you, HK?
>>3499357>>Ask HK about those new modules Egan installed in her.Anything interesting and/or useful?

>>3499357>>Ask HK about those new modules Egan installed in her.
>>3499357Better go get ready yourself
>>3499357"So, just to make sure, HK." You narrow your eyes. "Whlie Auntie Egan was inspecting you, did she install anything new in you?""Of course." HK nods. "She installed an additional software module. However, its contents and true purpose are not accessible to me at the moment. "Hmph. So it was a need to know basis, huh? Always secrets being passed around...>Ask Egan about it.>Have HK override her safeguards. >Forget it, it's not that important.>Other
>>3499407>>Forget it, it's not that important.I mean, Egan does care, it's just that she does it in really shady ways.
>>3499407>Ask Egan about it.I'm guessing it involves Magic.
>>3499407>Forget it, it's not that important.
>>3499407>>Forget it, it's not that important.Bah, if it's locked right now then it's probably not worth knowing. I was only interested in familiarizing with any new combat or utility functions, not other types of upgrades. Knowing about Egan's secret plans is irrelevant and a waste of time at this point.
>>3499407>Ask Egan about it.
>>3499407"Forget it, it's not that important." You shake your head. "Come on let's get geared up.""Affirmative." HK nods. It takes you a few minutes to get changed into your typical 'fighting' clothes. However, this time, you insert the crystal plate into your vest like you would a normal ceramic plate. The crystal plate continues to exude a soft warmth which actually feels... pretty pleasant, actually. However, besides, this sensation, you can't really sense any difference in your powers. Maybe it'll become more evident once you actually need to start using them. You and HK head out to meet up with Lucina and notice that instead of wearing her normal police gear, Lucina was this time wearing something a little more... form fitting. It looked to be an almost skintight, one piece outfit that clung to her body, showing every curve she had. "Hm? I something wrong, Lewis?" Lucina blinks when she notices you.>Uh, nothing at all. >That's an nice look. >Looking a bit risque...>Other
>>3499433>>That's an nice look.
>>3499433>That's an nice look.
>>3499433>Uh, nothing at all.Try to ignore our little Lewis. Especially if she has her hair up in a ponytail.
Rolled 4, 13, 3 = 20 (3d20)>>3499433...
>>3499467"Looking good there, Lucina." You grin ."Why thank you, Lewis." Lucina nods, not realizing what you were trying to hint at. She clips on a utility belt and holsters the goo gun. ST-AR also arrives. Like HK, she didn't really look all that much different, though she notices you staring at Lucina and raises an eyebrow at you, though she doesn't say anything out loud. "Okay, are we ready to go?" Lucina asks you. "If not, we're heading out right away.">Yeah, let's go.>I still have something to take care of. (specify)>Other
>>3499473>>Yeah, let's go.
>>3499473>Yeah, let's go.Nothing I can think of aside from giving her a quick run down of what Lewis' magic is capable of.
>>3499473>Yeah, let's go.
>>3499473"Yeah, let's go." You nod. And just like that, you are once again whisked away by helicopter as you are taken to Ashford's remote compound all the way out in the countryside. The ride there is relatively quiet, as you and Lucina focus on mentally preparing yourselves for one of the most dangerous missions in your lives, while HK and ST-AR were never quite the most talkative people to start with. Finally you're dropped off in the middle of a dark forest, well away from Ashford's compound. The helicopter simply couldn't risk getting any closer without risk of begin detected. "All right." Lucina's voice whispers in the darkness. "Lewis, you remember the plan, right?">You all infiltrate the compound together. >Lucina and ST-AR hang back to provide ranged support. >You and HK draw attention away from Lucina and ST-AR.>Other
>>3499523>You and HK draw attention away from Lucina and ST-AR.They want a monster, we'll give them a monster.
>>3499523>>You all infiltrate the compound together.
>>3499523>You all infiltrate the compound together.
Let's hope that our Magic won't be too noticeable >>3499523>Lucina and ST-AR hang back to provide ranged support.
>>3499523Hmmm, things are getting pretty slow tonight, so I'll leave the vote open overnight and we'll continue the thread on Saturday. See you then!
>>3499523>You all infiltrate the compound together
Looking back on it, isn't Lewis figuring out, and solving problems sort of like the job of Magical Girls giving hopes and dreams (and beating the tar out of Invaders)?
>>3499523>You and HK draw attention away from Lucina and ST-AR.
>>3499523"Yeah, we all go into the compound together." You nod. "But uh, how do we actually get into THAT."You point to the Ashford Estate, which resembled more of a medieval castle than a mansion, with high, thick stone walls reaching high up into the sky. It certainly looked far more intimidating than it did from the pictures. And even from here, you could tell the perimeter was being aggressively patrolled by a combination of BOWs, regular troops, and drones. Fortunately, on the BOW front, it wasn't more than a couple of Hunters lurking in front of the lake in front of the castle. "So what is our point of entry?" HK asks as she kneels next to you and Lucina. "My sensors don't detect any structural weaknesses.""We can try scaling the wall and get in through the roof." Lucina suggests. "It will be dark enough that they shouldn't be able to see us.""They have to have some kind of escape passage." ST-AR points out. "Me and HK can scour the perimeter and try to sniff something out.""Or... we can just go through the back door?" HK wonders, pointing towards a rather large and relatively unguarded set of doors at the rear of the castle. >Scale the walls and get in through the roof.>Search for a secret entrance.>Sneak in through the back door.>Other
>>3501690>>Sneak in through the back door.The most obvious is either trapped or unexpected.
>>3501690>>Search for a secret entrance.
>>3501690>Sneak in through the back door.
>>3501690>Scale the walls and get in through the roof.Time to see how well this is built.
>>3501690"Sometimes the most direct path is the easiest." You nod. "Besides, it doesn't look like they're expecting anybody to approach that way.""Well, we still have to penetrate their perimeter defenses first." Lucina sighs. "Right now, we seem to be limited by two paths of approach, the forest or the lake."Lucina points down toward the castle, where the lake was easy enough to see, while there was a large stretch of trees extending from the forest right up to the castle. In an actual security situation, those trees would have been completely cleared, but you suppose that a bunch of rich execs like the Ashford's didn't particularly care. "Doesn't look like they have much security infrastructure set up along the shore, but we'd have to deal with Hunters and whatever else may be hiding in the water." Lucina continues. "The trees let us bypass the lake, but that's probably where their human security is concentrated as well.">Sneak in through the lake. >Sneak in through the forest.>Other
>>3501809>Sneak in through the forest.
>>3501809>Sneak in through the lake.
>>3501809>>Sneak in through the forest.Better make sure there are no camouflaged BOWs around in the forest.
>>3501809>>Sneak in through the lake.I'm not afraid of no sea monsters!
>>3501809>>Sneak in through the forest.
>>3501809"Let's take the trees." You conclude. "I really don't want to mess with Hunters on their turf.""Understood." Lucina nods, deferring to your experience facing the damn things. And so your small squad proceeds through the forest. HK and ST-AR take point, and with their superior sensors, they are able to spot the Umbrella patrols with ease. They were pretty sporadic and well spaced out, but there were still quite a number of them. There were also cameras and motion sensors hidden in the trees, which you had to be careful to weave around. Soon, the lights of the castle begin to break through the leaves and branches, indicating you were close. However, ST-AR motions for you all to stop and she turns. "All right, we're near the treeline, but it's all open ground from here to the castle." She whispers. "Do we want to cross all at once or in pairs?"Well.... going across all at once was the quickest way, but also the easiest way to get spotted. Crossing in pairs would reduce detection, but take more time which could also lead to detection...>Cross at once.>Cross in pairs.>Other
>>3501923>Cross in pairs.
>>3501923>>Cross in pairs.
>>3501923>Cross in pairs.Just make sure to cover our ass.
>>3501923>>Cross in pairs.If this goes tits up, we should test out some enhanced magic.
>>3501923>>Cross in pairs.We've reached consensus!
>>3501923"We'll cross in pairs." You whisper. "Me and HK will go first.""Understood." Lucina nods. ST-AR meanwhile holds her rifle up in firing position, ready to cover your crossing. You glance at HK, who simply nods. "Ready when you are." She reports.You look from side to side. While you could see some patrolling guards, it didn't look like any of them were looking this way. A gap in their coverage you could exploit. "Go!" You order as you break out from the treeline.>Roll 1d20+2

>>3502100>20Well, crap. Looks like that sneaking suit really works.
>>3502100You and HK manage to cross the open yard. However, you have a mighty close call when one of the guards seems to notice your crossing and pauses, turning to look in your direction. You and HK press against the shadowed portion of the castle wall to try to stay in the shadows, while you see a glint from ST-AR's rifle as she takes aim.However, the guard's partner yells something, and he quickly turns around and continues on his patrol path, none the wiser. You barely have time to breath a sigh of relief when Lucina and ST-AR cross the yard and link up with you. "That was a close one." Lucina sighs."I would've taken them both out." ST-AR points out. "It wouldn't have been a problem.""I'd rather do this as cleanly as possible.' Lucina grumbles. "HK, how's the door look?""My sensors show a standard physical lock and an electronic sensor." HK reports. "I can jam the sensor, but there's little I can do about the lock short of breaking it.""You can't pick it?" You blink."I was never programmed with that knowledge." HK shakes her head.You turn to ST-AR, who also shakes her head. "Huh, not as prepared as we thought." You sigh. "Can't you do it?" Lucina asks."Hey, are you trying to imply something here?" You respond, slightly offended."No, I'm straight up saying I know you have lockpicking skill." Lucina glowers. >You don't have time to fool around with locks. Break it as silently as possible.>Guess this is where you come in..>Other

>>3502159>fleshcrafting Lewis' flesh into a magic crystal engagement/wedding ring.Do you have ANY idea how creepy that sounds on its own? Or in general?
>>3502125"All right, all right, I get it!" You sigh as you look at the lock and take a deep breath. Thankfully, since this estate looked to be rather old, the locks were old as well and it apparently never occurred to the Ashfords to actually upgrade their locks. Good for you, bad for them. The warmth in your chest from the cyrstal plate resonates with you, allowing you finer control over your crystal armor. You concentrate and a small, diamond lockpick emerges from your fingertip and you carefully insert it into the lock...>Roll 1d20+1

>>3502326It takes a bit longer than you were comfortable with getting the damn lock open, and at one point you had to momentarily stop time to figure your way past a particular section of the lock was was simply maddening. However, you manage to get your pick through the whole way, and there's a soft click as the lock disengages.And not a moment too soon. The next patrol round the corner, and all four of you pile in through the back door and HK silently closes it once you are all in. "All right, now the real work begins." Lucina grumbles, brushing herself off. "Now, our priority is finding the secret passage into the corporate HQ, but there's a chance that they have terminals here that have direct access to their database." ST-AR then projects a small holographic map of the estate, marking several points of interest."First, there's Ashford's personal study, which is sure to have at least a terminal there we can check out." Lucina mumbles. "However, the interior of this structure will have its own security system." HK warns. "We may need to neutralize the security room if we want to proceed further into the building.""Not if we're careful." ST-AR grunts. >Focus on searching for the passage.>Try to break into Ashford's personal study.>Neutralize the security room. >Split up to hit multiple objectives.>Other

>>3502420"We'll hit the security room, then." You say. "Looks like it's not far." "Right." Lucina nods. "Let's go."Thankfully, the interior of the castle didn't seem to be populated. The rooms and halls were eerily empty, giving this place a rather... creepy quality. Of course, there were cameras and motion sensors, but HK and ST-AR did a good job guiding you around them. Finally, you reach an armored door, camouflaged to look like a regular wooden one so it wouldn't stand out. This one had an electronic lock, so there wouldn't be any lockpicking this time around. "I think I can get this lock open." ST-AR murmurs. "Unless you want something quicker.""Well we DID bring breaching charges..." Lucina nods."Shouldn't we find out what's on the other side?" You wonder."The security room is electronically insulated." HK shakes her head. "It's next to impossible to determine what is inside through remote means."Damn. Either way, you'd have to go in blind. Hacking the door would give you an opportunity to see what's inside first, but there was value in surprise and violence of action...>Have ST-AR attempt to hack the door.>Just blow the door down.>Other

>>3502467"Got it." ST-AR grins. "Wait, shit-!"Suddenly, the security door clicks and swings open on its own, revealing the interior of the security center. There, you could see the entire room was filled with maid T-Dolls manning the security terminals. In the center, you saw SOPMOD herself, as well as another maid T-Doll that looked different from the others. Tall and intimidating, she exuded and air of authority. "Hm? Did somebody enter?" The mystery T-Doll mutters. SOPMOD and the mystery T-Doll turn to see what's happening, but they're not on alert and their reactions are slow, giving you a chance to act.>Open fire!>Take cover!>Other
>>3502478>>Open fire!Maids, huh?
>>3502478"Shit! Fire at will!" You bark as you raise your rifle. Immediately, HK and ST-AR snap their weapons into firing stance and open fire. Lucina is only slightly slower, taking position behind ST-AR.Meanwhile you raise your own rifle, your sights settling over...>SOPMOD. You already know how dangerous she can be.>The maid T-Doll.

Rolled 6, 9, 19 = 34 (3d20)>>3502500You line up your rifle on the lead maid T-Doll. It was pretty damn obvious she was some sort of special type. SOPMOD was a known quantity at the very least. You needed to get rid of this mystery T-Doll by any means necessary.>Roll 1d20

>>3502527>1I don't suppose Lewis is the kind of guy to take a hit, or overexert his powers for her.
>>3502527Both you and HK focus fire on the mystery T-Doll, drilling automatic fire into her chest and driving her backwards. However, SOPMOD is lightning quick as you feared, and she immediately dives forward with superhuman speed, tackling ST-AR. Their combined momentum carries them straight into Lucina and all three of them go tumbling into the hall and into the room across.Unfortunately, you don't have time to keep track of them, as the other maid T-Dolls staffing the security terminals hit the alarm and start moving to support their leader. Warning sirens begin wailing throughout the entire castle and presumable the whole compound, alerting pretty much every damn Umbrella soldier something was up. "Lewis, I need you to buy me several seconds." HK frowns as she continues dumping suppressing fire into the security room, knocking down two of the maids. "If I can interface directly with a security terminal, I can either try to access the mainframe from there or seize control of the security systems.">Sounds like a plan.>We need to help Lucina and ST-AR.>We need to get the hell out of here.>Other
>>3502536>Sounds like a plan.
>>3502536>>Sounds like a plan.
>>3502536>Sounds like a plan.We're not leaving with nothing.
>>3502536"Just a few seconds?" You ask."Affirmative." HK nods. "Can you buy me that much time?""Of course I can." You grin.However, as you say this, the lead maid T-Doll begins getting back up, the bullets you and HK fired sliding off her chest. Looks like this was a custom model like HK and SOPMOD. She was going to be a bit tougher to take down...>Continue engaging her at range with your rifle. >Armor up and make it up close and personal.>Other
>>3502569>Continue engaging her at range with your rifle. If we armor up we'll have to kill off every witness. They're just doing their jobs.
>>3502569>>Armor up and make it up close and personal.

Rolled 8, 16, 5 = 29 (3d20)>>3502569If all you needed was to buy HK some time, then you knew a good way to completely disrupt the enemy and keep their attention on you. Tossing your rifle aside, you sprint forward towards the maid leader, your skin hardening to crystal as you charging, giving you a protective suit of armor. >Roll 1d20+1
Rolled 15 + 1 (1d20 + 1)>>3502590Time to dive into the fireworks.
Rolled 13 + 1 (1d20 + 1)>>3502590
Rolled 12 + 1 (1d20 + 1)>>3502590
>>3502590As you charge, you see the maid T-Doll... life her skirt of all things!...to reveal a quartet of large caliber guns hidden underneath. What the fucking hell kind of T-Doll was this?!?Just as you start to wonder, the cannons open up, showering you with bullets. Heavy shells impact your crystal skin, chipping and cracking the outer layers but still managing to hold. Unfortunately, the sheer force of the barrage halts your momentum, and you're left slowly advancing towards your opponent rather than charging.But you achieve your objective in distracting her as HK dashes forward, drilling bullets into the remaining maids and then plugging herself into the nearest terminal. The lead maid suddenly realizes what's going on and pivots to target HK, but you reposition to put yourself between her and HK."System access granted." HK announces. "It's only a matter of time before they kick me out of the system. Orders?">Pull the mainframe data.>Try and call off the alarm. >Turn the security systems against them. >Other
>>3502603>Pull the mainframe data.
>>3502603>>Pull the mainframe data.Looks like we're going to have a hot extraction. Hope that Lucy is doing good on her end.
>>3502603>Turn the security systems against themThen>Pull the mainframe dataIf the time and order of operations works out
>>3502608Hopefully she's in a lot better shapehttps://youtu.be/uW9Q1cm_Tnw
>>3502612>>3502621Last thing we need is for her to be captured. Who knows what they'd do to her.
>>3502603"Pull the data! That's what we're here for!" You yell as a cannon shell bounces off your forehead. "Done." HK says as she pulls her link cable from the terminal. "Shall i assist you?">Yeah, help me out here!>Go help Lucina and ST-AR!>You've got the objective, get to the extraction point!>Other
>>3502630>Go help Lucina and ST-AR!
>>3502630>You've got the objective, get to the extraction point!
>>3502630>Go help Lucina and ST-AR
>>3502630>>Yeah, help me out here!>>3502626That's not even mentioning what would happen if both of them got captured considering both of their special natures of being genetically perfect, and a hybrid who could probably be used make an entire private army of Magic Users.
>>3502642It's actually kinda easy to forget that Lewis' super sperm is probably worth more than its weight in gold or ambergris.
>>3502630"Go help Lucina and ST-AR!" You bark. "I can handle this bitch!."HK pauses and looks at you briefly, reluctant to leave your side, but an order was an order. "Be careful." She says as she dashes out the door. Cannon shells continue to pound in your crystal skin. It was tough, but it had its limits, and the cracks were starting to spread and get even deeper and closer to your true fresh. >You need to take out this maid.>Keep buying time and occupying her attention.>Time to retreat.>Other
>>3502660I started to recognize some of you anons by the fetishes you're trying to push.

Rolled 10, 6, 15 = 31 (3d20)>>3502663You needed to take out this maid if you had any chance of disengaging. With another loud shout, you try to charge forward again to close the distance, even as cannons shells chip away at your crystal armor.>Roll 1d20+1

>>3502693Lewis hulked out
>>3502697This time, you don't let yourself lose momentum and you continue to charge forward, catching the lead maid T-Doll in a brutal shoulder charge and ramming her straight into the main security console behind her. There's an explosion of light and electricity and shattered glass, and a loud CRUNCH as T-Doll meets wall. The guns fall silent and the lead T-Doll goes limp. You don't have time to check whether she's active or not when there's a massive explosion behind you. In a panic you pivot around and dash back, where you see the room across the hall ruined and smoking. But there, you see both HK and ST-AR pinning down SOPMOD, who was struggling and snarling. "I AM SO GONNA KILL YOU ALL YOU BITCHES!" She yells."Just shut up already." ST-AR sighs as she plugs her link cable SOPMOD. The Umbrella T-Doll's eyes go blank and her body stops thrashing. "Egan gave us SOPMOD's override codes." HK explains. "Unfortunately, it requires a direct connection to upload them. "She couldn't have given us a verbal or wireless command, could she?" Lucina groans, her face covered with bruises and scratches. And that's when you hear the sound of engines. Cars and trucks and helicopters. A literal army was converging on this castle at this very moment, and there was no way you could fight them all. "So what do we do about her?" ST-AR raps her knuckles on the back of SOPMOD's head. >We do as Egan says. Take her back with us.>She'll just be dead weight. Pull her telemetry and leave her.>Other
>>3502703>We do as Egan says. Take her back with us.
>>3502703>>We do as Egan says. Take her back with us.
>>3502703>We do as Egan says. Take her back with us.Otherwise we'd have to kill her
>>3498933Even if I wasn't drunk I would be amused this is the top quest in the catalog. I think the Op image is great. It might or might not be better with a edit "featuring Dante from Devil May Cry" sticker.
And a Dune reference too, oh my. I thin'k I'll pick this back up.
>>3502703"We'll take her with us, like Auntie Egan wanted." You declare. "Roger that." HK nods as she picks up the frozen SOPMOD. "I'll take point." ST-AR says as she leaps out the now blown out window. "If we move now we should be able to stay ahead of the reinforcements. "I'll leave behind some distractions." Lucina nods as she reaches into her pack and throws a few explosive charges into the hallway. "That should keep them away for a bit."And thankfully, the four of you are able to make your escape into the woods, SOPMOD in tow and an Umbrella executive's estate in ruins. You just hope that you hadn't just made a huge mistake...>And that's it for tonight! As always, next thread will be on Friday so see you then!
>>3502728See you next time, Merc!I just hope that Soppo will try to actually listen to Lewis' side of the story that he isn't actually an evil dick that stole Umbrella property (even though the USB was a thing).
>>3502728Thanks for running, Merc!
>>3502728Thanks for running Merc!
Happy Mother's Day!Let's just hope HUNK doesn't manage to track her down to Egan's place.
>>3504532Yeah, let's celebrate Alice and Egan simultaneously being the best and worst moms ever!
>>3504555We all know that it's probably Carol's favourite day of the year where she can show Alice how much she appreciates her (Well, in her case, more than usual) with hugs ten times more intense.
