    1.61 MB Victorian Quest Part 10- Tesla Some Steampunk Dude 01/27/10(Wed)21:57 No.7802206  
    When we last left off in http://suptg.thisisnotatrueending.com/archive/7430980/
    we had ventured into the next level of the native city with Tesla's servant who is looking for something undetermined. We found our loyal bodyguard Winston who we had sent on a scouting mission and we have:
    1 Native guide
    15 Rifles
    6 Grenadiers
    10 Mercs
    2 Gatling trucks back at the entrance of the first level.

    The drone moves forward, and the walls are becoming more ornate by the minute, but the drone pays no care. Instead he is looking at the ground as he walks, seemingly seeing a trail. At the end of this corner there is a turn left and the path narrows somewhat. ORDERS? FORMATIONS?

    Last quest Winston informed us that he encountered Frenchmen running away from the deeper chambers of the second level that gave him their gear in order to run faster. He also mentioned the fact that the natives are scared any noise coming from the first level (IE our treasure excavators.

    The mercs are wary and inch their ways to the back of the formation, forcing your rifles and grenadiers to take point. You are about to reach the turn in the corridor, and it is illuminated not only by torchlight but by a dim purple light.

    I'm tempted to see how he reacts when he bumps into the shaman, but I guess it might be better to not let that happen. I'm voting shoot the shaman with all the guns we have. Point blank, so as not to accidentally hit Tesla's man. Even though his is pretty resilient, I don't want to take the chance that we hit something delicate.

We now know that if we encounter any more of these shamans that we should not wait for the electrical duel to go on; rather, as soon as his attention is taken up with Tesla's chap we will shoot him to provide an opening before things escalate.

    Remember that death in the line of duty to the Queen is one of the greatest ways for a man to die. Be not afraid, for we now have discerned their weakness, and with nothing more than a spot of luck, the only deaths from now on will be from the natives!"

    >> Researcher Sam 01/27/10(Wed)23:29 No.7803440
    To clarify; tell the workers to come with us, so that the shaman doesn't kill them.

    From what I remember, this guy can deflect bullets and survived a dynamite explosion to the face. I think we should GTFO.

    You tell the workers to strategically advance backwar-GODS WOUNDS START THE BLOODY TRUCKS. You run out the main entrance as one of the workers is electrocuted. ORDERS?
    >> Viceroy Paul 01/27/10(Wed)23:33 No.7803474
    have the trucks book it, if those guns can be fired while moving, send some round back at the shaman
    "see men, a little tactical advance solves all out problems" in out usual awesome way

    Keep hauling ass. Don't leave behind projectiles he can THROW AT US (IE: grenades) but I still vote for shooting at him (unless that starts screwing us over too).
    >> Researcher Sam 01/27/10(Wed)23:35 No.7803489
    Use gatling guns on trucks to hold the shaman at bay while we load up, then drive away. There should still be a couple of men at the trucks, so we can just give the order and have them get the barrels up to speed. If there isn't enough room in the trucks for everyone, have the workers run ahead and have the trucks slowly back away while firing at the shaman. That should keep him at bay while letting us get far enough away that he turns back.

    You are most welcome.

    You book it to the trucks, and the shaman is forced back by a hail of gatling rounds, martini-henry shots, and your pistol wielded by winston. He/it retreats back inside. Overall a nice day out. ORDERS?
    >> Viceroy Paul 01/27/10(Wed)23:38 No.7803520
    head back to base, see if we can rouse the drone. check on rike after we return
    >> Anonymous 01/27/10(Wed)23:38 No.7803534
    Back to camp. Write letter to Tesla telling him that things went well, and that it totally isn't our fault that the drone stopped moving and won't respond.

    ETA of the next convoys?
    >> Anonymous 01/27/10(Wed)23:39 No.7803537

    Drive back to the nearest basecamp and post the mercs as guards. Take stock of the situation and figure out what's going on with the drone.
    >> Researcher Sam 01/27/10(Wed)23:40 No.7803559
    Well that went better than I had expected. Head back to base. Pray that Riker hasn't killed himself while we were gone. Get the drone back to Tesla and wait for whatever new toy he sends us.

    Can you give us a rundown on the status of the settlement?

    Time for the summary post: You have:
    158 workers, 33 rifles, 18 mercenaries, 50 experts. 10 natives, 16 ROYAL grenadiers, 1 at rifle, 3 gatling guns on trucks, 1 mortar, 1 maxim, 2 gliders functional, 2 horses, 20 grenades, 3 box of dynamite Winston, Godfried, ROARKE, Riker

    1st ring- vehicle depot, fortified main barracks, fortified main hq,2 watchtowers, mortar pit, gatling trucks in vehicle depot, mine, heavy fortified trenches.

    2nd ring- additional barracks, 2 farms, 1 well, 1 brick sawmill, trade depot, wood trenches,

    3rd ring- new barracks, armory with foundry, medium trenches and dugouts, two watchtowers, granary, masonry

    Wall-65 percent done
    20 acres of land cleared, 18 rp remaining. The FIRST LEVEL of the city is cleared and not being looted. IMMIGRATION has been approved.

    Royal shipment in 1 week. You can finally get your reward for dealing with riker then. ORDERS?
    >> Viceroy Paul 01/27/10(Wed)23:44 No.7803614
    speaking of riker, how is that chap doing, still suicidal or has he come around to his senses
    >> Anonymous 01/27/10(Wed)23:44 No.7803618

    Is there concerns of the shaman continuing to be an immediate threat?
    >> Some Steampunk Dude 01/27/10(Wed)23:48 No.7803657
    Your guards tell you that Riker is silent and sullen, and has made no attempts at suicide or escape.
    The shaman did not seem to follow you.

    Winston comes up to you and says, can I mail this letter priority (2 rp cost) to England, its to my wife, and I want to have some communication because I might not live past this. Please? ORDERS?

    I think as long as we don't go down to areas that we haven't cleared yet we should be fine.

    Excellent. And when can we expect the next Industrial shipment?

    Pic not particularly related, but I love it very much.
    >> Anonymous 01/27/10(Wed)23:50 No.7803682
    Do it. We only need 20 RP for male Steam Tank, and we'll get 5 from Riker, so that's 23 total, minus 2 for the letter still gives us 21 to afford the tank. Pluss it'll be good for our image.
    >> Viceroy Paul 01/27/10(Wed)23:51 No.7803688
    we would still have enough rp after riker bonus to buy tank, so i say let winston write his letter. we should make sure preparations are being made of immigration and go see riker personally
    >> Anonymous 01/27/10(Wed)23:51 No.7803689

    Does Winston deserve preferential treatment over the others? If so, yes, mail it. If not, assign someone to be the letter carrier and the "everyone died, they sent me to tell you what's going on" person.

    What's the morale of the men? Particularly the rifles?
    >> Anonymous 01/27/10(Wed)23:51 No.7803694
    let him mail the letter. keeping winston happy is pretty important
    >> Some Steampunk Dude 01/27/10(Wed)23:52 No.7803707
    Winston will send off his letter when the Royal shipment comes. (16 rp remaining). You go personally to see Riker. He is a broken man. A shadow of the stout man you once knew, he is disheveled and does not even greet you when you enter the prisoner tent. ORDERS?
    >> Researcher Sam 01/27/10(Wed)23:52 No.7803713
    This is good reasoning. Wait, Winston is MARRIED?!?!?!

    Continue work on the wall, and start building some living quarters for the immigrants. I remember last thread we settled on refined wood from our sawmill and stone from our masonry as construction materials.

    Try to cheer him up. Remind him that while he may have been a bit misguided, his heart was in the right place. And as long as he is still alive, he can still serve.

    >> Researcher Sam 01/27/10(Wed)23:58 No.7803774
    I'll try.

    "Riker m'boy, why so down? Still put out from your earlier realization? I understand that this must be tough for you; serving Queen and Country was your whole life. But you may have forgotten one thing: It still is.

    You have made some mistakes, judged harshly on several occasions. But what matters is not so much how one dies for one's country, but how one lives for it. Any man can be a martyr, but it takes true courage to continue to live and fight for what you believe in! As long as you still draw breath you can continue to serve the Queen and glorious Britain."
