    Today's simulated battle will occur under the following parameters.

    Black and Red teams are to capture the "hill" the stump of a megafern for two rounds straight. should two teams be on the hill- the majority will take the hill.

    Green Team's objective will be only to destroy both teams. As they are both TAs, the simulated members are droids and botted armor.

    Black team to move.

    As the sim started up, Ghost found himself standing at the bottom of large hill. Gone was his usual sniper gear, instead he now wore a hooded robe that obscured all but the lens of his goggles. In place of his rifle, he now wielded a staff with a series of complex integrated machinery. Looking to Lost, he only shrugs.

    Hawkes is seeing everything lucidly in slow motion. Not a detail was missed and his eyes felt so buggy that he had to close them.

    Only then did he realize that it it was not sight that was dictating his senses.

    Aberham sensed that something was going on with both Irons and him. Hawkes' eyes were too active... and the density in irons' craft felt like it was thrumming with some unseen force.

    How he knew this without so much as an observation was beyond him however.....

    Lost now knew why people rarely rode in the armored gyro. It was terrifying. Her inner ear was arguing with her virtual inner ear, which was arguing with the lurching vision coming from the forward screens. While the inner part of the gyro lurched back and forth like the pre-war ships that sailed the seas, she could feel the constant rumbling as the entire outside moved independently from this compartment, rolling across the uneven terrain with giant spikes for traction.

    It was terrifying. It was thrilling. She could see why Shot drove it. It was unlike any vehicle she had been in before. It was neither bitank, nor ground effect, nor wheeled. It was a Gyro, and she knew that Shot drove it well. Otherwise, they’d all be dead.

    Colton was enjoying himself. Not because he found the VR training sim particularly interesting, not even with third mystery team bullshit. And while he appreciated Aberham’s help with the nades, even if he was doing a poor job of it, he was paying it half a mind. Hell, he was paying everything half a mind. Since they went into the VR, he’d jumped onto the mainframe and downloaded a couple of applications.

    “Um…” Lost cast around in her mind, trying to figure out what the Major wanted. She had been on Boreal Prime for her training. She had seen things freeze, almost instantly at times, in the sub-zero wasteland. Maybe the Major was asking her if she’d ever seen that phenomena.

    Irons wasn't sure how Sharky was holding together. There were holes where he knew there should definitely not be holes, not without everything going mushroom-shaped and uncomfortably hot. But really, he didn't care why.

    The fact was, he was here, the enemy was there, and he was going to kill them or die trying. As in reality, so in the sims. It had an elegant simplicity to it, he thought, as the gatlings roared and shook his craft all around him. Death and dying, pure and clean.

    Irons pulls out of the sim abruptly, his muscles tense with the sensation of remembered virtual agony. It's a familiar sensation to anyone as fond of the sims as he is, and he takes a moment to relax and reflect on the game that just passed.

    Unusual, to say the least. Ghost was terrifying in action, and Shot and Ghoul had been damned impressive as well- some sort of flame generator on the APC? Bitank rigged to detonate upon destruction?

    A slow grin crosses his face. He'd have to congratulate them on their creativity. Ghoul, particularly; it wasn't often that he felt he died due to being outwitted, but the vengeful little trick there definitely took him.

    With a bright expression, Irons pulls himself out of the simrig and goes to stand by the others watching the remaining troops fighting it out.

    Sup Douk, this part ofthe game was designed to test out the powers folks got.

    Believe it or not, Irons' was indeed heightened reconstitution. Which was hilarious when trauma thought she got the jump on him.

    and sorry I miss a lot posts between the IRC and the Forum. In fact I hardly read them at all in between processing.

    Anways hope you have fun doing other stuff.

    And no i dont play favorites nor do i have grand schemes to work towards. My insert even got killed earlier than you did.

    And no i didn't flat your escape, you didn't have actions anymore. That was a no-brainer since it took one to jettison out of the gyro and do some epic hero drops [which were epic]

    >gm fiat, the guy also in range of the explosion with 1/4 of your hp lives through the blast taking no damage

    That wasn't a flat he actually lived through it. You and Trauma didnt.

    And for future reference, whenever I do decide to roll shit off screen its normally for the sake of making games go super fast. I kind of likfe it when my turns only take like 5 minutes as opposed to 30.

    "Glad you liked it, just happy Colton isn't around to yell at me about it, I had no idea where I was punting him."


    >you were great too

    Aberham's expression softens, the praise pushes him of guard and clearly makes him uncomfortable. He lightly scratches his brow as if to push it aside

    "No, we're good...I honestly don't even remember you there, I'm rather agnostic when it comes to this flux stuff anyhow... I've been meaning to put in a petition to Walker to get your legs fixed proper, but I wanted to ask you first."

    " Jeez , died within the first minute " You guys are scary even without being confirmed psyches.

    In any case, Fierstrom was right, once we figure out the anomalies in their flux we can probably figure out how to reinstate their clones for them. In the meanwhile, are you sure about not bringing this up to High Command- if they find out that you have a concentration of talent that was triggered by a xeno incident it could change this war "

    " But- I guess you're not, huh. Shame if you ever do find yourself in some legal binds, just call up the Black Flag "

    "Heh, about that... Could you help me back onto the couch? I really shouldn't have slid off it with my crutches not on hand."

    In a quieter tone: "And don't get ask the Major. This is something I deserve. It's a good reminder about what happens when you don't tell people when you're in trouble. It could have been a lot worse if the Major had done nothing."

    Lost gives him a reassuring pat on the arm.

    "Right, once you kids are finished watching the kill cams and whatnot, Fierstrom is probably going to have you jump through some hoops to pull off some extra data from your heads. We're trying to make the best of what we got, even if it does slightly imply using you kids as guinea pigs."

    "But hey, why should it matter to you? You're the bloody X-men now."

    "Ah, right, Douk, it was good seeing a vet show up. If you want to go back to cryo, that's fine with me. But you'll always be welcomed up here, yeah?"

    "-brilliant move with the self-destruct, at any rate."
    The clone, who has exited his VR space in the humdrum of the space, comments back at the man. He looks at the Sergeant, then lets out a sigh.

    "-sounded cuter in Comm." A half-heard mutter is heard as he goes away.

    "No, not just yet. Because if they do, they're going to try to replicate it, with disasterous results. You and I know it, everyone here does, and so does Fierstrom. We're going to keep this quiet until we have enough data to make HQ cream themselves."

    "I will soldier, I will. Hopefully, the day won't be any time soon, yeah?"
