    You, the crew of the TGS Oncoming Storm, have found yourself in quite the shit sandwich, being trapped in a world that seems to now be home to several potent Horror beings. Finding Strahd von Zarovich and Dracula in Transylvania, zombies in Pennsylvania, and Silent Hill in Maine.

    You are currently questioning Heather Mason and a small band of survivors just outside of Silent Hill.

    "No... not really," Heather says.

    "I was trying to help Heather," Douglas says. "I still feel like I owe her one, ya know? Yeah, those cultists got the slammer. At least I did SOMEthing right."

    "Okay. What about the priest and the family? Locals? Or people who were drawn towards Silent Hill?
    "Also, did you hear anything on the news or radio about what was happening in the other states, like Pennsylvania? And other countries, like England or Japan?"

    Has the EMH completed his examination?
    >> Anonymous 11/12/11(Sat)23:38 No.16932569
    We also have the Mountains of Madness in Antarctica.
    And REALLY DENSE swirly fog over Japan.
    There may also be other things elsewhere on the globe.

    Well, I'd say now's a good time to ask the survivors if they want us to take them to a safe location, or if they're happy where they are.

    We're waiting on a probe report from Antarctica
    We're planning to send an away team of robots with Data to Pennsylvania to try to research resistance/immunity to whatever turned the zombies into zombies.
    We're debating if we should send a person into Transylvania to talk to the locals and learn more info, or talk to Strahd or Dracula since neither are mindless killbots, and they may be reasoned with.
    As noted, we're talking to Heather.
    We're doing absolutely fuck all with Japan since the mist is too strong to look past by any means, so we're focusing on other things first.

    Since Heather's finished her canon storyline, it's likely that whatever was in Silent hill can't be generating the fog any more.
    The Fog, then, is likely spamming out of Japan. The difficulty in stopping it is that we literally CAN'T FUCKING SEE there, and going in blind is just going to get everyone killed.

    So. waiting for EMH @ Maine, waiting to see if Heather and the other survivors want to come to our ship, and waiting to see if the ship actually can leave atmos.
    Waiting for more science! reports on Zombies
    Waiting for more Recon on the mountains of madness
    And waiting for /tg/ to argue whether it's a good idea, or a dumb idea, to send some of our living humans into Transylvania to chat with the locals.

    But Heather has clearly been fighting Silent Hill type monsters, and the astronauts saw the mist spreading from Silent Hill's location first.
    Even if the final boss is indeed Walpurgis Night, that doesn't explain the monsters.

    Well, the locals are a bunch of fucking Medieval peasants. From what they were saying, it seems likely that they're part of one of the two vampires' local peasantry.
    What we could try to find out is if the two vampires are on speaking terms, or they hate each other, each thinking the other is a pretentious windbag.

    But first, we need to find out if our transporters can even penetrate the mist that's there.

    Also, the ISS astronauts did say that the Mist was also coming out of Silent Hill.

    If so, I'd like to target a Remote region of earth that isn't used in horror stories (e.g. Kalahari Desert), and fire LOW-POWERED orbital weaponry at it, to see if the mist strengthens or disperses in response.

    We've seen what horrors have been unleashed, let's put more effort into locating the respective Protagonists.
    We'll need to get someone that can get the villagers to talk in Transylvania.
    We need to determine which Zombie outbreak is in PA. If RE-style, locate Raccoon City and STARS. If LFD style, locate the Survivors.
    Japan seems pretty hairy. I mean, while it might not have started there, Japan's horror stories will make you shit white. Avoid for now, see if a probe can get a long-range scan from far off, but under the cloud cover.

    If we get a positive "no" from the Farseers that Data's past will not be subject to being manifested by SH, and that he will not be affected by SH, he might be the best person we can send with Heather. A naturally fast/strong android with a positronic brain for those brain teasers, and who also has combat programming and training from years of away missions during his time on the Enterprise.

    That might not be such a bad idea. Or if we can see if ANON can do the same without sending a probe.


    Now this might be a GREAT idea. If we have such armor that's easy to wear/use for a woman of Heather's height/size, we should definitely send one down for her to use. Maybe even for Detective Cartland, since he insists on going with Heather.

    I'd hold back on the guns though, unless we have some arms that don't require much training. An untrained civilian with a mass rifle may cause a lot more harm to her allies than her enemies.

    If Heather needs to get into Silent Hill, I support sending Knights Inductors in with her. Preferably Darius and the Silencers at the least, a full squad just in case. Seriously though, having the Echo of the First Age to boost everyone's courage and willpower is definitively needed to confront Silent Hill. I imagine Heather would be glad to have a squad of superhuman heroes as a bodyguard the second time around.

    We can use of SCP, Delta Green and UNIT troops on the other (less mind fucking) locations along with our other Heroes, with the Marauders and the second KI squad on standby in Low Earth Orbit (can you say Orbital Drop Shock?).

    "We do not know."

    You send your probe off to collect the locale newspapers. The last one is dated a month ago. Apparently whatever happened was so swift as to prevent reports on it. You do, however, find a few reports on doomsday cults holding 'worship services' all over the world. These cults were mainly characterized by a Six-Fingered Hand symbol, but you also recognize a few Mythos and Order cults as well. All of these cults appear to have arisen simultaneously and independently.
    >> Fireman Prime 11/13/11(Sun)00:50 No.16933336

    Again, it may not be a good idea to send the KI with Heather. They would be kickass, no doubt, but remember: Silent Hill can and WILL match any living beings we send with her with their worst nightmares and subconscious horrors made flesh.

    Darius with that legendary blade *might* be able to defend Heather well enough against crab-walking Un-Orks that rip open their chests and spawn squigs that barf rusted sheets of razor-sharp metal. Or fleshy, faceless comissars that attack you by shooting themselves in the head and spraying you with corrosive viscera.

    But we have no guarantee that they could run into horrors that they would not be able to defend themselves against! Remember Pyramid Head? The invulnerable horror that James really couldn't do much against except run away and shoot them ineffectively? Imagine that, but dialed up to 15000000x due to dealing with the unmentionable horrors of the Warp and the sometimes equally horrifying policies of the Imperium.

    The catch with this scenario is that IF we send a team of BAMFs with Heather, Silent Hill will match us point for point and then some! If we send someone who isn't technically alive or conscious, though, we may be able to circumvent that. Ditto if we send Heather/Douglas with advanced equipment to help them survive.

    The EMH really doesn't need protection, really. He's a hologram. Unless someone has photonic weapons, they're not going to be able to harm him at all.

    So we have Data and the probe droid (?) escorting Heather and the Detective (equipped with some of our finest weaponry?) into Silent Hill, to solve its mystery.
    We also have a probe dispatched to Antarctica, to find the remains of the Expedition, the lost city, and with any luck, find an Elder Thing.
    We're also entertaining the notion of sending Darius and the Knights Inductor to Transylvania, to see what's going on with the vampires.
    Also we're trying to analyze what type of zombies we're dealing with in Pennsylvania, and SCIENCE up a vaccine? But who's doing the science, if Data is with Heather (also when did that happen? I thought he was deployed to PA).

    The EMH is going to be doing that, and people seem to want to send HK-50 with him as fire support.

    Data first needed to land in Maine because our transporters can't penetrate the mist, and so we would need to use a shuttle to get the EMH to go to Pennsylvania.

    I also suggest we show the survivors (who appear to be just local natives, rather than any Canon characters or Protagonists since ANON couldn't identify them) how to close the dropship doors and to use the radio to talk to us, in case something tries to attack the dropship, and we can deepstrike KI or MI backup.

    Was thinking about Antarctica anomaly

    If its Lovecraft, as stated before, its definitely the Elder Thing's city. Hopefully its the one from the 1931 Peabody expedition, in which case we might have a handful of Elder Things, and at least one shoggoth, and of course albino penguins
    - If so, bring electricity, lots of electricity

    If its John Carpenter's The Thing, well, we'll need Data & EMH to isolate some signature that can detect the presence of The Thing. Once it absorbs you, it'll be you, and every part of it is conscious, making it a serious menace. Extremes of fire and cold work well to kill and immobalize it.

    If its Mountains, get Egon and Delta Greens working together. Possibly Tobin's Spirit Guide has something we can use to our advantage.

    Also, if we can, have someone scan the coordinates:
    47 degrees 9 minutes South; 126 degrees 43 minutes West
    49 degrees 51 minutes South; 128 degree 34 minutes West
    See map here: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/R%27lyeh

    They're the locations that Lovecraft and Derleth (in that order) each located R'yleh, in which case we have Cthulhu to deal with too.
    - Lure him to Coney Island and use lightning to dispose of him, old hat for Egon at this point I would imagine.

    Lastly, I was horribly reminded of the CoC publication "Beyond the Mountains of Madness" (see pic) and if this is the case, that really worries me.

    Even if the Mountains and the Elder Thing city are at the Antarctic, there's no way to know if other stories from the Mythos have also crossed over.

    Besides, Zann disappears at the end of the short story, and so far, the only Canon character we've made contact with, came from after her Canon had stabilized and become a closed Canon.

    Aside from the Silent Hill Investigation, and the Pennsylvania Zombie Investigation (EMH and HK-50 only), we need to consider our options concerning Transylvania.
    We need to test to see if the mist is thinner there, and if our beaming technology works. If not, then we need to choose which dropship to send, and which team.

    I would suggest Darius and a Knight Inductor Team equipped with the magic weapons. The Space Marines are bigger, stronger, and faster than humans, and so would be good against any attackers. The magic weapons should prove useful against the vampires and their minions, if they prove hostile.

    Now, I'm hoping that, as two sapient and fairly arrogant vampire lords, they won't like sharing a world with another vampire lord, let alone all of the eldritch horrors that are trying to awaken.
    They may be willing to not interfere with our investigations.
    Of course, they could just as well be contaminated by SUE-energy, or they may decide that they like it here and will oppose us.

    Also, if we send the Al'Kesh down, we should test its beaming technology on the surface, see if it can do site-to-site transports while within the mist, rather than through it.
    Yeah, it's not logical, but the mist isn't a logical thing, it's a Plot Device and probably operates on its own rules.

    I think they are simply a disruptive force, that normally can only destroy a single Canon world, if the Narrative calls for it.
    But by being sucked through a Crossover Event, Narrative no longer keeps them down any more. There's no Narrative here leading adventurers and protagonists along to stop the cults' plans at the last moment, saving the world.

    From what we've seen so far, I think we have to 'beat' each Canon. Silent Hill has puzzles to be solved, we probably have to get some Protagonists to an extraction point in Pennsylvania, we may have to defeat both vampire lords in Transylvania, defeat whatever's in Japan.

    But I don't know what we're supposed to do in Antarctica. We can't save the Elder Thing that was revived in the short story, because it has to die. Maybe we're supposed to rescue the Protagonist after he evades the shoggoth and gets out of the tunnels?

    Here are some notes on the Knights Inductor from Not LongPoster from the Knights Inductor thread:
    Some notes on Knight Inductor gene-seed, since there seems to be some confusion on the questers' part: all Knights Inductor gene-seed has the Blank gene spliced into it, but as most Neophytes Inductor are not Blanks, and they only get the organs implanted after they are mostly grown up (late teens), the effect is basically an increased resilience in the face of Warp weirdness (and a complete deadening of any psychic abilities, assuming the implantation takes -- their gene-seed doesn't play nice with psykers, and since the Knights need astropaths and Librarians, they generally just bar psykers from getting implants entirely). Said resilience is more mental than physical; I chose to represent it in Deathwatch as a bonus to Willpower.

    On the other hand, Neophytes who are Blanks are substantially empowered by the process, and with training and a set of implants similar to the Animus Speculum, they can manipulate the size, shape, and intensity of their null-field. With enough experience, they can have enough control to extinguish daemons at close quarters while not affecting their allies.

    - Glad to see reason winning out against the need to turn this into yet another large scale combat engagement. Well done all you people arguing for caution.

    - We have this elven tracker/ranger guy right? Wouldn't he be a good fit with medieval Transylvania?

    - Even though we all seem to be familiar with the canons involved here, I don't think we can assume that they are as we remember. There are reality distortions everywhere. This means the Plateau of Leng might have more than a few Elder Things and a Shoggoth.

    - Egon is probably an expert on the Cthulhu mythos. The original Ghostbusters was extremely Lovecraftian.

    - Whatever we commit on the ground, we should hold some big guns back. We have no guarantee that we'll be able to transport them back up in a hurry and we have no idea what threat Japan poses.

    I suppose so. In combination with Darius and the Knights Inductor, he would be good in pointing out to them natural hazards.

    Of course, he might also be useful in Pennsylvania. The problem with Pennsylvania is that it contains both heavily developed cities, like Allentown, Philadelphia, Harrisburg, and Bethlehem, interspersed with farmland and just forests.
    Walk 5 minutes away from a Wal-mart and you could end up in a forest with no idea where you are, even though there might be a major highway not 50 feet away.

    We might need to send another probe down there.
    But instead of bringing a probe down onto Japan like last time, maybe target Korea or China, and have the drone fly low into Japan.

    We'll probably not have them that strong for a while, and we'll need to be throwing them into dangerous situations for XP and Job Points, and making sure they don't die.
    Which means that we need to plan things obsessively rather than charging in and trusting in our weapons to see us through.
    Faith in firepower is misplaced.

    Fortunately for our troops, we've become quite taken with obsessive planning. The benefits of which were awesomely obvious at the Battle of Tokyo.

    I'm amazed these threads last so long without dropping off the board.

    Since Silent Hill is "finished," I'd be interested in unlocking Heather's abilities and recruiting her if she's interested.

    She's willing to go back to a literal hell to save her world. That's not something you find every day, and we can always use another psychic with experience in hell-worlds.

    Maybe, and that would save on all the memory editing we're going to have to do otherwise. Hopefully we can keep her sane while she tracks down whatever it is she is meant to uncover to solve the problems here.

    Possible, though I am worried about her reality distortion.
    Maybe it's the result of her coming from a video game Canon?
    It's possible, however unlikely, that another Silent Hill game might be created with her in it. Maybe this is a manifestation of that potential?

    >I'm amazed these threads last so long without dropping off the board.
    Part of it, I think, is that some of us use stealth sage's in order to allow post counts to increase while not adding to the bump limit.

    Remember that it's not a post limit, but a bump limit. Sage's help to let the thread stick around longer. That's why it's funny to me seeing people trying to sage-bomb something, when in reality it does nothing.

    I think Silent Hill will be much easier to go through with a team of kill-droids at her back.

    Those monsters are fucked.

    That'll be because Silent Hill won't be able to feed upon the regrets of a droid.
    The kinds of horrors that would be produced by sending in Space Marines would have meant instant mission failure.

    So is it agreed that the probe droids were pretty much the best idea ever?
    The only regret I have is that we didn't think to requisition one of these (there were like at least five more besides the main one). Or would it have been worth too many points?
    >> Anonymous 11/17/11(Thu)15:56 No.16949283
    It's still possible, of course, that Silent Hill might be able to get something from Data. However, since his regrets revolve around the lack of emotions, I don't think they'll present much of a threat.

    Most of us believe that sending only the robots with Heather was the best choice.
    There's still the guy that wanted an entire KI squad to go with her right into Silent Hill.
    He'll probably make a return to advocate more head-long charges into danger.

    I hope that that Silent Hill: Shattered Memories game doesn't have any unfortunate ramifications for what's happening with Heather, since it effectively reboots her, as well as Dahlia, and Harry.

    As the person that initially suggested it, the idea wasn't for charging headlong, they simply seemed like the best living people to send along.

    Thinking on it though, I've decided holding back on them would be better, the null-aura generates Disquiet, and even though the Silencers can shape and control it, I don't think extended exposure around other people in that place is wise. Still our best choice to drop in if Heather and company get in over their head.

    But that's exactly what you were doing; charging head-long into a dangerous situation and making it worse by bringing along people that would be a liability with their own emotional baggage and the completely unknown and unpredictable result of bringing the Null gene into the Silent Hill-controlled zone. By using Data and the probe droid, we get around the problem of walking into a psychoreactive area with living beings, and still provide extra firepower support for Heather.

    All things that we already went over and explained, even as you continued to demand we send a Knights Inductor squad into Silent Hill.

    I agree completely. But I also think we should send kill-droids in there, not just probes.

    What happens if something huge shows up?

    I wasn't the only one suggesting their use, there were some other fools suggesting sending a crazy kill squad of shoot everything.
    I suggested them because I felt they might be immune, or at least resistant to Silent Hill's effects.
    I was also the one that suggested sending Data instead if he proved immune/resistant, and the one that sent him on a patrol to fully test that theory before backing sending him and the probe droid.

    Depending on the type of zombies that are down there in Pennsylvania, this might be a good time to get our TG Recruit squad some combat experience. It may perhaps be best to keep the Al'Kesh with them, for easier emergency pickup.

    I'm actually now regretting that we didn't keep the Ring teleporter on the Al'Kesh; the much stronger matter confinement field used by the Rings would probably be able to punch through the mist's interference.
    >> Anonymous 11/18/11(Fri)17:34 No.16957941
    I guess we'll have to think of getting one Al'kesh with the rings when we can get more. I think those things are my favorite little bomber/transport now.
    Though when we get around to upgrading we should get some shielding and/or ablative armor on them to beef them up some.
    >> Anonymous 11/18/11(Fri)17:42 No.16958030
    They already have shielding, and they have a cloaking device.

    Actually, I think we should get a pair of stargates.
    Have one on the Storm, and the other on the Al'Kesh.
    That way, we can Ring down one gate, and have our ground troops use that to go back and forth from the Storm and the planet.
    And if we need to pull out, everyone goes through the gate, and then it gets Ringed up on to the Al'Kesh.
    This would be one way to go back and forth quickly if there's something interfering with our transporter technology, as happens sometimes.

    Sup lads, I'm here.

    Earlier today, I had a dream in real life. A Canon had been violated (An assassin killed the president). First, a female agent was sent in to restore the canon, and failed miserably, necessitating a prince of persia "wait, that wasn't really how it went" rewind.
    Then, I was sent in, and though I fucked up at parts, I did okay.

    The plan: 1. Ensure the Vice President makes the same important decisions that the President would have made, if he were still alive.
    2. Prevent the Assassin from doing further damage to the timeline.

    How she went about it:
    Use Hax powers to seduce the Vice President and seduce the Assassin. Enact a truly bullshit web of lies to somehow keep BOTH romanced, which then collapses, leading to her seducing even MORE people in an attempt to maintain power.
    This is where I'm sent in, I defeat her in a fight scene, and time rewinds to see how I'd do it.

    All hands brace for TG Quest in one hour!
    >> Anonymous 11/18/11(Fri)18:06 No.16958230
    How I went about it:
    As soon as the female agent warps in, kick her in the cunt and tell her to piss off.
    Use Hax powers to disguise myself as people who are supposed to be in the Whitehouse, steadily learning more about my next mark, then disguising as him or her until I was in a position to talk to the Vice President regularily.
    Convince the VP to have the same policiesm approaches and attitudes that the President had.
    Collect Evidence on the Assassin's attack on the President (again, mostly hax-fueled), then have the Assassin imprisoned.

    My plan backfired when the Assassin escaped and tried to destroy Washington with a nuclear device. I had to use my hax in a public area to prevent the explosion, and I blew my cover.
    I portrayed myself as being sent from God to enact His will, and bullshitted up reasons why the VP had to follow the (dead) president's plan.
    I murdered the Assassin while he was in jail to prevent him from trying that shit again.

    To correct the hole left in the Canon by having an Angel showed up, I started a conspiracy theory that there was OBVIOUSLY no nuclear threat to Washington and DOUBLE OBVIOUSLY there was no angel, it was all governmental bullshit to push their policies through.

    I had to destroy any hard evidence of my presence, and murder people who knew too much and wouldn't stfu about it. I was successful, but that left the hole in Canon of several other government workers being dead.

    I didn't try to fix that hole; just said "Job done" and got a B rank for the mission, with the Canon holes of "The Vice President received Divine Inspiration" and "Some other people are dead".

    Somehow I think a pair of actual Stargates are going to be a little too expensive. Al'kesh is comparatively cheap and easy to come by, particularly after the Goa'uld are largely defeated.

    Maybe we can track down a similar solution from another canon for mass gateway operations. I can think of some magic based ones, and Protoss use that sort of technology a fair bit.
    As for shielding, I'd just feel better for our troops if we increased that beyond the baseline for the Al'kesh. At the moment I wouldn't want to use it outside of situations where stealth was relatively assured.

    Then again, I have to wonder where the SG teams were getting some of those extra Stargates they were using for special projects, there's enough other people figuring out how to make them, maybe the SGC was as well by the end and never really talked about it much.

    I think for cheap Stargates, all you have to do is find a planet that's on the cartouche but was listed as uninhabitable.
    They don't show them that much in the show, but there is mention that some planets just don't have anything besides the gate and DHD. We could probably take some of those.
    >> Anonymous 11/18/11(Fri)18:51 No.16958608

    So, the plan is:
    1. Darius and the Elf to Transylvania.
    I think Spike would be good to also send, since he's pretty much our King of bullshitting, and being able to talk down Strahd or SotN!Dracula will be useful.
    2. Droid to Pennsylvania to beam up data for the SCIENCE! team to science over
    Works for me. Need to find out if these are viral zombies, magic zombies, parasitic zombies, or all three.
    3. Data and the Silencers with Heather to Silent Hill
    Also works, but I'm really scared about this one.
    4. Wait for the Observer to finish searching Antarctica for the remains of Peabody's expedition.
    Works too.
    5. Check for survivors in Korea or China
    I think we should use Auror/Farseer scrying instead of a droid for this one, since there's a damn fierce storm near there.

    Have Egon look into The Mist. The Storm has sensors. He mightn't be able to understand much, but he may have some input on how it works.

    Have the UNIT, SCP, Delta greens, X-com squad, WHMs, Psions, Abjurers, Sandmen, TG squad, (rest of the) KI squad, Mobile Infantry, Madcat pilots, Destroid pilots, Starship crewmen, Tosh and Char tell each-other horror stories to pass the time. It might increase their plot savviness.

    I think we settled on Data, Probe Droid, and Observer drone, with the Silencers on standby to be dropped in if shit hits the fan hard enough.
    And Data is already there.

    We were sending the EMH and HK-50 to examine the zombie situation in PA more closely.

    I don't think we should risk Spike in vampire territory.
    >> Anonymous 11/18/11(Fri)18:59 No.16958671
    No, that's not the plan.

    1. Darius and Fanalon to go to Transylvania with a squad of KI, but only after checking that they can be beamed down and back up. Otherwise, they'll need to take either the other Leopard or the Al'Kesh.
    The problem with bringing Spike along is that he's human, and so is food for either of the vampires.

    2. Data and the probe droid are going with Heather. Not the Silencers.

    3. The EMH and HK-50 are taking a shuttle to Pennsylvania to start tests on the zombies while the probe droid continues searching.

    Actually, that makes me think of something we should have thought of long ago. Have Egon start work on tuning our sensors to register EKG readings. Having ships do flybys while he uses his little hand-held unit has been kinda silly.

    Not recently, but if he and science team can make phaser-proton beams and convert ships into giant ghost-traps, there's no reason he shouldn't be able to tweak the sensor array.
