    11 KB TG Quest 21: In the Money OP 11/12/11(Sat)01:04 No.16923441  

    Last Thread: http://suptg.thisisnotatrueending.com/archive/16920186/

    You are the command crew of the Oncoming Storm, a transdimensional vessel in the service of the Transpace Guard, an organization dedicated to protecting reality in its myriad forms from the various threats to its existence.

    The TG stands vigilant against such terrors as S.U.E.s, twisted entities that leech and warp any world they inhabit, space-time breaches that allow worlds to mingle and merge with each other known as Crossovers, and the many, many people who attempt to exploit the various planes and "Canons" to their own agendas.

    Not too long ago, a massive disturbance in time-space ripped great holes in the fabric of reality, causing great distortions in this sector of TG's guarded space. Unfortunately, this sector being new and underfunded, the best they could send out was you.

    Swiftly rallying a crew for your ship with the aid of Sector Manager Garret Holtz, you set out to begin your investigation...

    You first went to check on a TG monitoring station that had sent out a distress call. You arrived to find not only the station, but the entire planet devoid of all sentient life save a small group of strange alien ships. The aliens, calling themselves the Orz, related a bizarre tale of how they came to arrive there, while other teams investigated the station and the surface of the alternate Earth, of the C&C Canon.

    The teams found foreboding evidence on the planet below of experiments being performed by the Brotherhood of Nod into Chronosphere research. They discovered that whatever fate befall the planet, Kane escaped before it happened. You then decided to loot the complex and ally with the Orz, allowing them to tag along since they seemed to enjoy fighting. You kept them on as allies even when it became clear they were behind the disappearance of the planet's populace, perhaps following the adage of, "Keep your enemies closer."

    In addition to that, logs from the station and an artifact pulled from a debris field around Mars indicated that two interdimensional ships, a Void Engineer vessel and a Chaos Battleship fought a terrible battle just before the Event. Their location was dead center in the Event's effect radius.

    Deciding to gather more troops and gear before investigating, you returned to base, filed your report, spent your funding, and traveled to the second largest TG base in hopes of gaining more resources.

    Upon arriving you found the planet, part of the Shadowrun cluster, invaded and occupied by drow led by a Supernatural Unbalanced Entity, a S.U.E. Making good use of Shadowrunners and the Orz, you managed to engage and destroy the Drow spacefleet in orbit, as well as kill the SUE, a drow priestess-princess with a stupidly long name that the 'Runners had nicknamed "The Royal Pain." With the death of the SUE, Ares Macrotechnology and Saeder-Krupp led a massive counterattack that as you left, was well on its way to massacring the drow on planet. With the drow out of the picture, the local hidden TG base was free to lift their security lockdown and resume operations.

    You also managed to determine that the drow were brought here by an astral call from Spider that pierced the veil between worlds due to the Event. He also mentioned that amidst the flood of voices the Event opened to him, he recalled one word stood out. "Stob." This same word was mentioned in the recovered observation recording of the Void Engineer battle, an intercepted message from the ship mentioning the same.

    All this being done you returned to base, received, and spent more funding.

    Setting out once again to investigate loss of contact with another base, you arrived at a Fallout verse to find the battle of Hoover Dam being interrupted by an army of mutated anthropomorphic animals, the Ranks of the Fit. They were led by a minor SUE that was easily killed, and their forces were decimated thanks to the Storm's newly acquired air power, VF-25s and Tie Defenders. However, during the fight, a potent mutagen they had plotted to contaminate the Dam's waters with was breached. A combination of F.E.V. and the T.G.R.I. Ooze, this unholy mixture was central to the dead SUE's plan. An unlucky Auror was infected and began to mutate, but he was recovered in time for treatment. A team of Destroids set down to guard the infectious barrels while you decided what to do next.

    While Egon and the E.M.H researched the mutagen, you sent teams of your troops out to loot caches of high technology in the wastelands, desperate to bolster your own meager resources with whatever the ravaged world could offer you. You walked away with a nice haul of power armor, advanced weapons, and nuclear warheads. Finally, Egon reports that the substance, called “F.E.M.” for Forced Evolutionary Mutagen, is vulnerable to destruction when bathed in a reality stabilization field, such as that given off by reality emitters. Now knowing the key to its destruction, you wiped the planet clean of the contamination and lifted off after an almost disastrous side trip to the Boomer's homebase.

    On returning to base you were awarded with a science team of 20 X-COM scientists and a few sets of Advanced Power Armor mk2 for your troops. You regrouped, resupplied, and set out again to rescue the last TG base in the area. However, things did not go as planned.

    On arrival in the system, a Dark Matter world, you were quickly detected by the Greys, who opted to pull their ships back rather than risk a confrontation with the one mile long battleship that they saw. Upon sending an away team to the TG base on Earth, everything seemed to be in order at first glance. The problem seemed to be some minor base damage from the Event, and Mouse set about repairing the equipment. However, several things didn't add up, and eventually the team concluding the base had been compromised. Unfortunately this realization came too late, as Mouse had been converted to a Sandman, and Spike and the Aurors were infected by nanites picked up from the base cafeteria. Attempting to recover their troops and flee, the Indefatigable beamed aboard the away team only for Mouse to attack and try to infect the rest of the ship. Luckily he was subdued before he could inflict much damage. The Storm and its escorts made the transpace jump back to base.

    The jump did not go as planned either though, time slowing down as the mysterious G-man appeared to dispense some free advice and a word of warning before vanishing. The moment he left, the ships made it back to base safely, relating the bad news to Holtz. While Egon, the X-COM science team, and the E.M.H looked into ways to restore the infected troops to normal, a plan was settled on by the rest of the team. A containment bay was fitted to the Storm, the Indefatigable would attempt to beam all the Sandmen into the bay for deprogramming as soon as a strike team brought the base's interdict field generators down. With the help of access codes and floor plan from Manager Holtz, the team executed a well put together plan... unfortunately the Sandmen had prepared, and a remote-detonated explosive near the generators buried most of the team in rubble. However, the Indefatigable's transporters saved the day again, recovering not only the Sandmen, but all the troops buried alive before their air ran out. However, one of the dead was Colonel-Commissar Ibram Gaunt.

    The team salvaged what they could from the base and locked it down as best they could before returning to headquarters. Upon returning, they resupplied and refilled their ranks with a few fresh recruits, including Peter Quill, the Star Lord to replace the deceased Gaunt. From there, they set out to make contact with the Time Space Administration Bureau.

    The TSAB appeared to be dealing with problems of its own, its own territory coming under attack in the chaos. Despite this, the agents of the outpost agreed to share information with the Storm since they did the same. The Storm was able to gain a TSAB analyzed map of this region of space-time, as well as data the TSAB gathered on the Chaos and Void Engineer forces. With a few words of caution, the Storm departed for one of the anomalous words on the map to check it out.

    They arrived to find utter chaos. A world almost consumed by reality distortions, a mish-mash of many, many different Canons. Confronted by a United States run by Darth Vader and under the protection of a Death Star, the crew hastily gathered information while sending their Orz allies to attack the ships in orbit as a decoy. Swiftly fast-talking an overbearing SUE-corrupted Starscream into his own doom by giving him the information on the Orz he demanded, the group left to report and regroup. They were then allowed access to a large armed force for the mission of detonating a Rewriter Bomb, a device capable of resetting that universe back to its original state. When everything was ready, the task force assaulted and destroyed the fleet in orbit with the tactical genius of Admiral Pellaeon at the helm. With extensive planning they deployed Mecha-Godzilla to Kyoto, where it acted as bait for the bulk of the SUE forces while the rest of the army used stealth generators and cunning to secretly set up a base of operations at Tokyo Tower. While this happened, the orbital team managed the impossible, captured not only the Super Star Destroyer Executor, but two Imperial-II Star Destroyers with a well coordinated strike force, teleporting quantum torpedoes, skill, strategy, and a healthy dose of luck. They also confronted Darth Vader while aboard the vessel, the leader of the SUEs here, and slew him.

    After a brief celebration with Sector Manager Holtz and the troops, the crew set out again, this time finding themselves in Middle Earth, where Ahriman of the Thousand Sons had erected a Chaos Gate to allow him passage. Intercepting him, the Transpace Guard made a deal. In exchange for a Lesser Ring of Power, and all the elven lore within Rivendell, he would not only leave the world peacefully, but share with them what he knew about the Event. At the same time, Tosh managed to apprehend a Shipper who attempted to poison Aragorn and Legolas' food with some form of aphrodisiac drug. The TG imprisoned her and impounded her ship, finding footage on it that suggested it once held a potent anti-Chaos weapon. A daring plan was immediately put into action for acquiring the Ring. The TG sent down teams to acquire First Age weapons for a distraction assault on the Black Gate, drawing Sauron's gaze to them while others infiltrated and stole a Ring. First though, they had to scan the Rivendell Library with tricorders, a simple mission that almost turned disastrous when one clumsy Auror kept tripping into things. Nonetheless, it was successful. While Ahriman occupied himself with the data-slates full of lore, other teams descended underwater to the ruins of Gondolin, journeyed to Tor Morwen, and even set foot into the tomb of hallowed Fingolfin himself. It was during a final valiant duel against ghostly guardians to prove himself worthy that one Space Marine earned the title of Hero as well as the legendary sword Ringil. Darius Fortes took up the blade and alongside Star-Lord, let a valiant attack on the Black Gate that left its forces in disarray, though at a cost.

    Meanwhile, Tosh led stealthed Delta Greens and Aurors into Barad-dur, infiltrating past its many defenses only to run right into a Ring-Wraith. As fierce combat ensued, the Ring-Wraith stabbed two Delta Greens, but had his one Ring blown off him by a Mass Rifle. Tosh grabbed the item and ordered a retreat as the tower's defenses came crashing down around them. They managed to escape in a cloaked Al'Kesh. Later on, the two Delta Greens were healed by a dancing and singing Tom Bombadil, while the Ring was handed over to Ahriman. Ahriman told them that the stob was the cause of the Event, and that it itself was an acronym, S.T.O.B. He then revealed he had been reduced to a fraction of his power the whole time he had been here thanks to being cut off from the Warp, thanked the TG for doing his dirty work for him, and left. Demoman blew up the Gate behind him.

    You then returned to cash in your loot and now decided where to go...

    Checking in on the status of your trophies, they are still being retrofitted, as it has only been a few days since you left.

    "If you want the retrofits to go a little bit faster, there's a supplier I could look into contacting," Holtz mentions. "But I don't know if you want to spend the time for it when you could be doing other things. You going to wait for the scouts to report back in, or are you heading out soon as you can?"

    I assume they're mostly clairvoyants and telepaths.

    Here's our Recon options:
    The Storm has good sensors, for both satellite imagery, and sensing reality distortions.
    The Aurors can scry distant places, and also use some of the potterverse's (not very informative) fortune-telling.
    The Farseers do as their name implies, and predict the future / see distant places.
    The Psions have clairvoyants and telepaths. They can read surface thoughts of a target in range, and learn of the past of an item or place in range.
    Tosh is a telepath that can pick up S.U.E.s from a long distance.
    We have Recon droids and UAVs.

    Small wall slabs our existing transporters can beam down. (not worth spending RP on, we'll pick up some rubble for that job somewhere else)

    I basically gave you a few pre-built Starcraft Bunkers and some Imperial-Guard Bolter Turrets/Troop Commands.

    You wait at the base for two days as your supply orders roll in and are prepared. Late on the second day, the chief magitech for the base reports to you.

    "Analysis complete. Subject: Black Arrow. Though originally just an adamant arrow with a mild enchantment over it, the legends that have grown up around this single weapon's slaying of the great dragon Smaug have imbued it with powers far above its make. We've determined that this weapon will instantly kill most forms of dragon it is shot at, presuming it hits. It also seems to be indestructible, rating even past diamonds and adamant in terms of durability. Against foes other than dragon-kind, it is merely a master-crafted arrow of adamant."

    Copying over what I posted in the last thread:

    I just wanna go on record and say that next time we can get a hero, it should be another researcher-type like Egon, but more magically inclined. I recommend Uncle from Jackie Chan Adventures (the UU-MO-GWAI-GWAI-FAI-DEE-ZIAO guy). Eldritch abominations and the like should not be too much of a stretch from the demonic evil dragon spirits he's dealt with already.
    If anything, he'll give Egon someone to bounce ideas off of, and allow for the production of even better anti-whatsits.

    That and "One more thing!" could be all the extra advantage/information we need to figure out the next puzzle / bad guy's weakness .

    The problem with waiting around too long is that the situation is still deteriorating.

    Uncle's problem is while that he's incredibly knowledgeable, he's really kind of useless outside of eastern magics. Egon is ingenious enough to cross several different branches of study, but Uncle is kind of stuck on things like chi. He probably wouldn't be willing to learn anything new either.

    "Analysis complete. Subject: Sindri's Repaired Ring. This item, once a Ring of Power given to the Dwarf-Lord Sindri, has degraded immensely in power since being in Smaug's belly for centuries and then partially repaired by Auror magic. However, this has proven to be a boon in disguise, as its corruptive influence has faded. Though it no longer has much of its power, it has two notable effects. The first is a sort of 'treasure sense' gained by the wearer. The ring-bearer has a sixth sense for finding treasure, especially gems and precious metals, and luck seems to follow them in terms of finance. The second power is that this ring, intended for the dwarves who are master craftsmen, greatly enhanced the ability of the wearer to craft, build, forge, or otherwise create items of any sort so long as it involves metal or stone. The only downside is that the bearer develops a greedy streak, but tests show this to be well within acceptable bounds. It does not appear to cause obsession."

    If you mean the circles, those were added by another planner anon and weren't part of the original map.

    "I was awfully busy running to give them a detailed scan... but now that you mentioned it... The far right cluster there had Chaos vessels that seemed different from the normal ones. More advanced."

    Both Yellowman and Holtz are overjoyed at the shipment of booze you brought.

    "If this keeps up, I'm going to have to promote you all somehow," Holtz happily declares as he drinks up.

    It takes a minimum amount of talk to convince Holtz to give the Shipper Ship to the Scouts once it's ready. Yellowman appreciates the addition of a second vessel a great deal, even if it is just a light freighter.

    The recruiters report that the elf's name is Finalon, and was a sentry for Rivendell. He is a highly talented wilderness scout/tracker and archer. If you like, you can add him to your roster as a Hero. You may not select his talents if you do this.

    Egon reports in with his new team of scientists assembled around him. He adjusts his glasses.

    "In the last two weeks or so we've made a major breakthrough in application of the Reality Emitters for defensive purposes. By careful adjustment of certain energy wavelengths and emission of a few obscure additional energies, we can simultaneously project a Gellar-Field as well as a Reality Stabilization Field for each Reality Emitter. We can now upgrade all Reality Emitters to the new mk.2 version. However, we do not have the resources to do so yet, and it takes some time for each squad's worth produced. The next time funding rolls around, I will send the list of materials we need to Holtz."

    Get the various Magic-users we now have on staff, and see if they can understand the basics of Magic together. The Aurors, being well-learned professors of magic in their verse, might help with that. If we can somehow understand magic, we might be able to apply it in new ways.

    We've got long range on those sensors, so not a close orbit. Let's stay as far out as the moon with the main fleet.

    Let's give a chunk of it a good radar scan, see if we can determine landmass configuration. If it is baseline we'll know quick, if it isn't we'll need to decide how to proceed.

    The Indefatigable cannot determine this.

    The Farseers, after collecting themselves, make their report.

    "Human... great evil has made this its home. We cannot allow it to remain unchecked. Though we have wandered into the jaws of oblivion, know that even a day's delay may cost you the world here. Of all the futures we saw, the only ones that held any hope in them were those in which we confronted the demons of this place, sought its mysteries with all haste. We are not sure why... But now that we are here, we invite disaster if we try to leave. You MUST NOT attempt to leave until this planet is free of taint..." The farseer closes her eyes. "We have two weeks before the horrors within this places roils forth into the greater multiverse. We have that time to stop it."

    There are indeed satellites in orbit, and radar scans penetrate the mist just long enough to reveal the landmasses of a 'normal' Earth.

    Sounds like we got a case of the eldritch abominations, and we're now within its quantum waveform.

    Was the Inde able to find any commsats, or other things in Earth orbit?

    Situations like this is why I wanted cheap, baseline-Earth drones: we're sending them into a situation where it's not a matter of can they come back, but of how long can they continue transmitting before they crash.

    We should prepare some of the cheaper drones to be beamed down to the planet and begin their observations.

    Sought its mysteries with all haste.

    Well, its mysteries are obviously somewhere below the fog, but the fog may have a case of incredible mindfuck.

    Have the Indefatigable fly by some of the communications satellites, and have Mouse pull any of the logs from the satellites. We need to know what information, if any, is being bounced to and from the satellites.
    It would also be nice to know where the Geosynchronous satellites are pointing at. That'll give you a good idea of where the largest cities on the planet were.

    We need to deploy our Drones to the surface of the planet, preferably at the North and South pole initially where there are less likely to be humans for it to run into. Report on what they see.

    Tosh obviously senses something. Ask him where the things he senses are strongest.

    The Aurors, Farseers and Psions should get maximum Psi and mindfuck protection going.
    Have the Psions mind link with the Farseers, to get a second opinion on what (if anything) they saw.

    The Aurors should not do anything yet, because for all we know scrying will make them scream.

    Looks like we're narrowing down what's happening to this planet. A crossover of western horror fictions.

    Tenatively, my plan is "Investigate what's happening in each of the focal areas, then apply Orbital Fire to all that could be potentially solved by Orbital Fire".

    Since Japan, China and Australia aren't at the center of the blooms, I'd like to have the Storm, or any of our magic users, try to Detect Life over those regions - focus on Beijing, Tokyo and Sydney. It may be hard to penetrate the mist.
    Deploy a disposable drone to Maine, Transylvania, and the disturbance in Pennsylvania. See what's going on.
    Also send a disposable drone to any major population center far away from the initial blooms.

    Psions and Aurors to read the minds of the ISS crew.
    Search for Life in various parts of the world. Or, if life can't be found, search for Heat. Any surviving modern population produces a great deal of it, especially ones in colder climates like Canada and Siberia.
    Continue scanning for any large reality distortions across the planet, we know of four already.

    The ISS crew appear to be whole, healthy, and human, just very, very shaken by what they've endured.

    I'm going to type up what the first probe finds and then head in. Someone please archive this who can see straight. And remind me to reveal the other probes tomorrow.

    The first droid, the one sent to Maine, crashes into what seems to be a deserted town. Its aural sensors soon detect footsteps in the direction of the distortion. It emerges from its drop pod and makes it way towards the sound, turning the corner of a street for its primary floodlight to illuminate the form of a young woman with short blond hair in a white vest and shorts, carrying a bloodied pipe.

    She holds up a hand to the light as her eyes adjust...

    They seem to be "vacuum" worlds that suck up other Canons easily and smoosh them together.

    It seems the Space-Time Oscillation Bomb has that sort of weird effect.

    In other news, according to the canon, if we do not beat Walpurgis Night, Madoka turns into a super-witch and basically assimilates the whole planet, aka mission failed.

    That is if Walpurgis is waiting on this planet somehow.
