    26 KB TG Quest 30: Lich Bling OP 12/02/11(Fri)19:13 No.17087235  

    Short Summary: You're in a world that has more horror than Michael Jackson's photo album. Currently you're in Pennsylvania, in a town called Riverside trying to get answers about the zombies that have overrun the area, and their new leader, some sort of lich. You have just completed a deal to drop supplies to the Survivor Encampment, and their nominal leader, Dr. Han, approaches you.

    Last Thread: http://suptg.thisisnotatrueending.com/archive/17059442/

    "You have completed your part of the bargain," Dr. Han says, reaching into his pocket and producing a flash drive. "I have copied all of my notes and work onto this device. I hope it serves you well."

    Your scientists state that with the new data, all they need is some time to go through it all and run some tests. They estimate that by next morning they should have a complete report.

    Do you just wait or do you do anything in the mean time?

    Once we have the conclusions of our science team on the data, we should prepare our strike team. Our goals should be

    1) Eliminate all virus-type undead activity in both Riverside and Racoon.
    2) Strike/Negotiate with the necromancer to eliminate all magic-type undead.

    The Lich king, Azalin Rex, hates Strahd. I'm expecting we'll set the two up against each-other, or at the very least, befriend them both so that one of them can help us contain the Dark Presence.
    I honestly don't know how to kill the Dark Presence.

    We're up against L4D zombies, and Night of the living dead zombies, and Resident Evil zombies. There may also be some parasitic zombies in there (Half-life / The flood / The many from system shock 2), so be careful.

    Until morning: I'd like to have something aerial do a flyover and search for signs of survivor activity. I don't know where the hell we'd find Leon, but the L4D guys would've set up defenses on top of a hospital tower if they existed.

    The fact that the Fog covers the entire world has me worried. I'm still paranoid that we'll come up against biblical shit in Israel.

    I don't like using our limited resources, but we may need to send an Observer into Raccoon City.

    It can fly above the range of any of the zombies and has a cloak.

    Maybe mention this being the Raccoon City incident all over again, with added mention of Umbrella?
    I mean ultimately Raccoon City was actually nuked, so you'd think it would still be in the public consciousness.
    >> Anonymous 12/02/11(Fri)19:35 No.17087426
    No, we shouldn't mention it. One of the people here identified himself as a Raccoon City survivor, and from everything he was saying, it appeared that he is from before the city was nuked.
    And the other survivors appear to be from the L4D Canon, not the RE Canon, so they wouldn't have heard of Raccoon City before or of it being nuked.

    Alright vote time:
    A. Send an Observer to fly 500 feet in the air and recon Raccoon City
    B. Send the Probe Droids in
    C. Do A and B
    D. Other

    OP: I assume that we're sending teams to Pennsylvania and Transylvania simultaneously, but we're just keeping them in separate threads to avoid confusion.
    I'd say now's a good time to get a handle on which troops we're sending where, once the scientists get done with their work.

    The Mechs are a given for the zombie apocalypse, since I don't see them being useful in the Castles of ravenloft and castlevania.
    The Sandmen's nanites might prevent zombie infection.
    The /tg/ recruits could use some meatgrinder experience.
    BLU team are more suited to 'kick the door down and blow up waves of enemies' fighting than fighting single strong boss monsters, so I'd send them to the zombies.
    Star-lord might help command our troops vs. the zombies.
    The EMH is a given for the zombie apocalypse. We'll see a lot of wounded or dead survivors, and our own troops might be infected.
    X-com ranking officers (I assume we have some in the veteran squad) prevent rookie panic. Flying suits are useful to check in windows and on top of buildings. Psi troops can control simple bestial creatures, and they're amazingly GOOD at it in X-com (beasts have low psi skill).
    We'll need to split up the White mages between here and transylvania. We've got a lich here, which presumably means magical undead.

    So, I'm thinking our Zombie team consists of:
    The Mechs (other than the MLRS since I assume most of our fights will be close range)
    /tg/ recruits
    3 of the White Mages

    Any changes/additions/removals?

    We're going to have to start getting some intel on Raccoon City and Aazlin.
    Baring SUE-interference, an Observer should be able to quietly float over it and give us the lay of the land.

    Also, request someone from the dropship near Silent Hill go out and find a map covering PA and see if Raccoon City is actually native or not.

    Your questions and search do not find any trace of the R.E. heroes or the L4D survivors. When you describe Wesker, however...

    "Oh shit, the blond guy with the coat, glasses and red eyes? He skulks around Raccoon like it's his personal playground. Saw him jump down on my buddy, and the fucker bit into his neck and start gulping! I swear it's like a madhouse over there..."

    I'm wagering Raccoon is not actually local, and if it is Wesker, it was probably dragged over along with him.
    However I'll remain uncertain on that until we can confirm whether or not the cities exist on maps from this world.

    Cool. Need to be careful with who we deploy, then.

    One person wants to send half the Abjurers and Psions to the Zombie area, and another person wants to send all the Abjurers and Psions for Ravenloft/Castlevania.
    We need someone to second one of these suggestions - either one works, so long as we're not deadlocked.

    Perhaps, but be careful. The last time we dealt with a powerful magical enemy, we basically got swindled.
    We -did- learn that "stob" was a Space-Time Oscillation Bomb from him, so that's good.

    The mists are thick enough that the sun is not visible, but the increased illumination around the fortified mall means it has risen into the sky.

    Your scientists report in.

    "We have completed our research into the zombies plaguing the area, and have discovered that most of the samples brought in have been dead long before being re-killed by the HK unit. Some sort of anomalous energy has sustained and altered most of these bodies, though primary mutation was accomplished by the T Virus for some, and an unknown contagion we are terming 'Caesar' for the others. It is important to note that though the virus is inactive in all true undead, they ARE still carriers of it. Using the advanced facilities onboard, we have developed a vaccine based on Sandman nanites that will make any troops we field immune to the airborne strains of this disease, and resistant to the virus delivered by injury. We can also provide information on the monster's tactical capabilities."

    Begin replicating the vaccine at once.
    We seem to be in agreement that the mechs and TG Recruits, at least, will be going down to Raccoon City, so they'll all need shots of the vaccine.

    The TG recruits, coming from Meta, should already be familiar with zombie movies and videogames; just make sure that all of them have played some Resident Evil and seen Return of the Living Dead.
    The Canon troops will need a crash course in zombie survival.

    Good work team, start churning out enough to inoculate all away teams with enough to spare for locals as we can.

    Alright, the variety of zombies and creatures are culled from many sources, but they've all been converted to true undead, that is some serious SUE involvement if I've ever seen it, question is whether Ebon Night arranged it or the local disruption did.

    Science Team, start trying to work that X-COM psi-unlocking mojo and anything else you can come up with to help Cheryl get in touch with her abilities, I believe that is why she is key to having a chance against the Dark Power at work on this world.

    Well yeah. Most of the troops that we recruited from near-modern Earth worlds should be fine.

    I'm worried about the White Mages (since the undead they fought don't carry infections).

    While this is going on, we should have the others who are going to go to Transylvania watch movies on vampires and play through the Castlevania games; specifically Symphony of the Night.
    Also read up on any Ravenloft setting books if we have any.

    We've got resident evil hunters and L4D tanks.
    L4D tanks can throw cars 100 meters. They're melee only, but can probably kill a mech in only a few hits.
    Cool. Everyone going down to the planet gets a vaccine.

    The question now is:
    Do we deploy in:
    A. Riverside first, or
    B. Raccoon city first?

    Also, for magic support, what do we bring:
    A. 3 White Mages (out of 6)
    B. 3 White Mages, 3 Abjurers, 3 Psions (out of 6)
    C. 6 White Mages
    D. 6 White Mages, 3 Abjurers, 3 Psions

    I agree that it's risky to bring Cheryl up to the storm. Keep her monitored for reality distortions. The Seers said she was the key, and I believe them, but a reality distortion also being the key strikes me as odd.

    With good armor and a decent supply of weaponry, the zombies themselves aren't a major problem to our people, at least not with the vaccine.
    The real threat will be SUE-corrupted creatures, Wesker, and Azalin. If this follows Ravenloft rules we've seen so far, we need to defeat the Anchor for this locale.

    I think that we will need to bring Cheryl up to the Storm eventually, and get her some time inside a Psi Lab with some X-COM Psi Vets to try to unlock her powers, but I don't think now is a good time.

    We need all the X-COM vets down in Raccoon City, and it's best if we give Cheryl a day to decompress and get her head cleared from Silent Hill before putting her through psi-training.

    As for deployment:

    Voting for B. Raccoon City, on the very outskirts.
    Also voting B Magic Support.
    And have the EMH and HK-50 get back into their shuttlepod and hop over to the landing zone to meet up with the others.

    I believe he's talking about after this mission concludes. It is a very real concern. Perhaps we should turn an eye to future recruitment with that in mind?

    Of course, focusing upon the mission at hand should take priority, but if anyone has an idea for possible future opponents we may need to counter (granted that is an *extremely* long list), it may be a good idea to get it out in the open so we can prepare accordingly. For example, we may need some hacking expert in future to deal with maniac supercomputers, as well as insulating our equipment from external interference.

    Your Observer returns with a complete map of the city along with the report that it located Wesker and what it can confirm to be Azalin Rex entering a large skyscraper that appears to have been fortified and seems to be at the very center of the undead concentration. It also sighted Wesker running down a survivor and drinking all of his blood, draining him dry.

    Psions and any Mech sensors should get on detecting life. Abjurs can detect magic. WHMs should get Magic Defense spells on the Star-lord and the Mechs, if they can maintain these spells and still have the mana left to heal.

    /tg/ Recruits use guns to shoot, BLU does the same. Keep moving that dispenser forward, engineer; we'll need lots of ammo.
    X-commies can fly around to look in windows or snipe from rooftops with heavy plasma, or they can blaster bomb strong targets, or they can MIND CONTROL big dumb beasties to make them sit still while we apply bullets to them.

    Star-Lord goes over the city map provided by the Observer, and identifies a route that will get the troops to the building that Azalin is using for a tower.
    There is unlikely any place near that tower that the Leopard could land at, so we'll need to land and disembark our troops at the outskirts.

    They will fight their way through the city to the tower.
    The Leopard will provide close air support.

    The Observer will maintain its position and continually update Star-Lord on his task force's progress, and any changes to enemy disposition.

    Mechs and Gundam to the front and sides, X-COM to the rear, all others in the middle, and the magic-users in the center.

    In order to put Raccoon City back in its proper canon, we have to get rid of Azalin's influence. In the RE universe, the city gets nuked after the major T-virus outbreak that leads to the first three games. If Azalin's still around here when that's due to take place, then he'll prevent it from occurring. That is not a good thing. Hence, we kill Azalin and boot this city back to its proper canon.

    The main issue with both is that there's no point we can recruit them *from* in their timelines. X is a cyberelf, and may be reluctant to take up arms once more (legs too, while we're at it), and well, we're not sure when might be good to recruit Rock. Zero, on the other hand, had an ideal point of recruitment, just after he destroyed Weil. his commitment to destroying the enemy, and his excellent destructive capabilities, especially swordmanship (handy, when we have a bunch of First age magic swords going around) and several weapons still give him adaptability enough.

    Of course, it's not an either/or proposition, depending on how many slots become available.

Decaying and half-skeletal frogmen crash into screaming recruits and rip bloody handfuls from their chests as return fire is scattered and panicked. A trio of hulking behemoths that were once men, the infamous 'Tank' zombie leaps onto the cockpits of the Mad Cats and begins punching and attempting to tear off the armor to get to the pilot within.

    The White Mages begin casting buffs as the Sandmen barely manage to shoot the Tanks off the Mad Cats. The Mass Rifles are extremely effective, killing the brutes with a single shot, but unfortunately, damaging the mechs when they miss.

    "Kerensky's blood!" one of the Cat pilots swears. "Was that some kind of zombie Elemental?!"

    BLU team is laying into the enemy as best they can as Star-Lord attempts to rally the recruits, but the less than stellar start is making it hard to get the rookies under control, and the monsters are still ripping them apart. The Psionicists and Abjurers are casting minor spells right now that are having little effect on the battle's course.

    So, are we agreed to take advantage of these guys' true name however we can? Maybe give Sorbet or whatever Wesker's name, too. If we can get the two guys engaged in a magic duel, it'll make our operations much easier. If course, we need to make sure *they* don't figure out we gave the other guy their true names.

    I know that we have to drop the bomb on Raccoon, but should we mayhap recruit from the survivors in some capacity? they're going to die otherwise, so we may as well. We got a hero when we took that Elf, so we might find a hidden gem or two.

    No, nothing. Unless you count Quint, but that guy sucked bolts. It also applies to all of the other characters from the classic era, except Auto, oddly enough (and that's a cameo).

    Ditto Axl, he disappears between the end of the X series and the ZX characters, as well as Volnutt, also have no specific point to recruit them from. Zero is the only Megaman protagonist we can actually recruit with damaging the Canon. luckily, he's one of the best choices.

    Your Leopard goes into 'Spectre Mode' as it circles the battlefield and starts blasting apart the hordes of zombies as they form. With the White Mages and Nannybags, your forces suffer very minor casualties as they press forward, especially with Raise magic. BLU has to respawn once or twice, but you're half-way to the skyscraper already. Once or twice some guiding intelligence pulled a large group of monsters and zombies together to attack, but the Leopard blew them away from the air before they could attack.

    Now that you're formed up, most of the zombies simply cannot stand up to your firepower. The few undead assets that can flee in advance. You get the feeling that someone is guiding its forces to where they would be more useful.

    It'd take time, though it might be possible to use a spell that would force the ghost to manifest or the like.

    The X-COM troops jet up to the upper stories and begin working their way down as Star-Lord and BLU team search the ground floor. Aside from a few zombies that are easily dispatched, they don't seem to find much of interest. The ground floor has a number of lifts as well as emergency stairs.

    That is Riverside, send down an Al'kesh with a small amount of troops on it. Have the probe instruct the survivors to get and take cover, because we're going to lay down some artillery fire to clear a safe path to an experimental littoral combat ship by the river.
    Once their heads are down, use the cloaked Al'kesh to lay down a swath of fire to clear said path to the river, then park itself on the river. Shape and size are just about right to make the lie believable. Unload troops to provide cover fire for the survivors while they evac to the ship.

    Originally we were attacking every spot at once when we went into Silent Hill, but it hasn't worked out that way.
    And the first thing people are going to want to say to Strahd is 'oh hai, we just killed Azalin'. Keeping track of and enforcing temporal causality is a pain in the ass in games where you aren't time traveling.

    Nothing that it'll be attacked.
    The concern is A) Destroying Raccoon City could be dangerous to Riverside right next to it.
    B) The entire town will recede with the fog, having never existed in this canon. Which could dump them in the hell-hole that is L4D canon.

    rolled 37 = 37

    Star-Lord reports that a pack of Lickers and Hunters decimated the BLU team, then for some reason they never respawned. They managed to kill the monsters, but had to fall back.

    The X-COM troops take point, emerging from the office complex into a storage area. Crates, odd storage containers that look like huge cylinders, and tanks fill the room. Two types of tank in fact. Three of the Veterans immediate are set upon by a trio of Tanks as they leap into combat from ambush positions atop huge piles of crates and cargo. The white mages immediately resurrect them, but your team still scatters at the sudden attack. A veritable swarm of undead begins to boil forth from every corner of the room, all rushing for your away team! Hunters, Lickers, and the various zombies are joined by a new creature, a terrible amalgamation of several creatures in a humanoid shape, with bony blades for arms and many malformed eyes.

    They keep getting thrust into situations in which they aren't really suited for. Anti-zombie duty involves using extensive amounts of weaponry that are meant for taking out tons of infantry (i.e. flamers, machine guns, small pulse lasers). Our current Timberwolves/Mad-Cat Primes aren't really good anti-infantry 'mechs, and the Hellstars are downright terrible for crowd-control. Even the likes of the Hi-Nu Gundam or Wing Zero would not fare very well in that situation. We might have been able to take along some Firestarters or Piranhas for dedicated and downright scary anti-infantry capabilities, but they would not be very useful outside of that role.

    If we were in a Sci-fi type setting, however, they'd fit right in and contribute very well; in fact, they acquitted themselves well when defending the Rewriter bomb against the various SUE ground/air forces that were sketched into existence. Against mech-sized targets or static defenses, our 4 Hellstars gives us some extremely long-ranged and extremely damaging long-to-short ranged fire support (4 C-ER PPCs with no minimum range = OUCH). The Two Mad-Cats give us some raiding capability while offering a similar mix.

    Doppelganger Damacy would be great.

    Speaking of Damacies, I wonder if we could get the Prince of All Cosmos and/or the King of All Cosmos with Katamaris eventually. It would be the ultimate in containment technology! Just roll up the Katamari to the approximate size of the enemy and keep 'em stuck to the ball until we can deal with them at a later date. The Prince is nigh-indestructible, and the King (while likely to inadvertently cause more harm than good) is basically a carefree/whimsical version of Galactus.

    The OP from that is in here somewhere at time, there's been after game talk before about letting some be brought in.

    I dunno about 'equivalents', I don't think I've seen a mass produced suit have that find of pilot survivability anywhere else. They practically have nanny-bags built in.

    Speaking of which, we need to have that jacked-up rebuild bed from the secret lab at the shelter.

    Talking more troops in this case, those suits need well trained people using them, just like we have pilots for our battlemechs.
