    592 KB /tg/ Meta Quest B1: Bootleg OP !!Cuw+lR6NxOH 01/25/12(Wed)20:02 No.17674594  
    On a level of reality just below our own, the Crossover began. A thousand walls between fiction and the Metaworld tore open, releasing the hungry forces of Sue from their cannibalized homes. Metaworld itself- connection between Fiction and Reality, and the result of seven billion human's perception of Reality, was nearly rent apart.

    In the aftermath, with millions dead and cities flattened, the Rifts existed still. The group that had managed the feat of slaying the Sues stepped forward to defend these gates between Meta and Fiction. They knew that the only way to restore stability was to keep to the Canon, as thousands of Meta inhabitants disappeared into the worlds of Fiction, intent on their own agendas.

    The name of these guardians?

    The Transpace Guard.

    There are millions of millions of Canons out there. From video games, to books, to movies, to movies, traditional games, and more. The goal of the Transpace Guard is to ensure that nobody fucks with the story, and that Canon is preserved, so that the Metaverse remains stable, and no great castastrophe happens again.

    Even now, valiant heroes fight to restore stability, from countless bad fanfictions, disastrous crossovers, hostile entities in the Meta, and author-self-inserts known as S.U.E.s.
    But they cannot do this with strength of will alone.

    Men need weapons to fight. Ships to traverse the meta. Troops to fight with. And they always need more money.
    That's where you come in.

    Transpace Guard Requisitions is in charge of handling the ins and outs of weapons, troops, and equipment to the brave operatives who seek to maintain stability and wrest the Canon from the cold, dead hands of those who would harm it.

    Oddly enough, not ALL equipment comes directly from requisitions. "Meta" technology, including reality emitters, transit drives, and rewriter bombs, are produced by Black OPs and Black OPs alone. But for everything else, Requisitions can handle it.

    There are 6 main branches of the Transpace Guard Requisitions. In no particular order, they are:

    Featuring a world packed to the brim with as many production and research facilities as a world can handle, if it can be made, Manufacturing can make it.
    They handle the guns, ships, mechanised forces and armor. They handle reverse engineering, and rebuilding.

    Unfortunately, some things cannot be made. Magic, Phlebotinum, and various rare elements. These have to be picked up. Which leads us to...

    Hazardous, tedious, but necessary. They're the guys who pick up the Elerium, mine the Eezo, kill the money spiders every nanosecond for their coins, and satisfy Requisitions' needs for rare materials.
    By going to a canon where items will not be missed, they pick up whatever raw materials they can find and send them back, often killing millions of respawning monsters in the process.

    But of course, you need soldiers to fight monsters. Which leads to...

    Human Resources.

    This is not a nice place to be.
    The goal of requisitions is to take what won't be missed from a Canon, and send it to forces that need it.
    Sometimes, People won't be missed.
    Heroes, Troops, Specialists, Mooks ... all brought here for recruitment. But recruitment isn't always nice.
    By speech, drugs, surgery, magic, brainwashing, false memory implanting, or even outright torture, people here are "Convinced" to work for the Transpace Guard.

    What's more, Human Resources keeps on hand a stack of two useful things:
    Reconstruction units, and Soul gems.
    So when a person dies, so long as their body structure is backed up and their Soul is stored, they can be rebuilt.
    It's standard policy for all people working in Human Resources to wear Soul gems on their bodies,
    and every day, a steady stream of people attempt Suicide, are rebuilt, and are moved immediately into re-education.

    Human Resources is not a nice place.

    A fractal near the edge of reality, with warehouses upon warehouses and boxes upon boxes, built for storing an infinite amount of the most hazardous and volatile substances, and also the most mundane.

    Casualties here rank highest amongst the branches. Monsters roam the infinite halls - monsters carelessly looted and improperly stored break free, and in these infinite halls, nobody can say everything is secure.

    But, they are a minor concern, and as long as Human Resources can keep restoring the box stackers to life, Storage keeps on trucking, having a place for everything, and almost everything in its place. Almost.

    A tower of glass and steel on Meta-Earth serves as home to Requisitions' Logistics divisions.
    It is their job to know exact counts of every item Requisitions has, where all of them are, what the staff are working on, and how to get items from the other branches to where they are most needed.

    The tower itself creates reality distortions - the weight of the paper alone inside the tower exceeds the total weight of the tower itself, to prevent it from collapsing under the weight of its own forms.

    It may be one of the most boring jobs in the Multiverse. In fact, after 10 years of working here, Soul gems can no longer be used to restore workers, because you can't restore to life a man that lost his soul.

    This brings us to the 6th faction, and the players' faction, and I hope you'll enjoy this. :)

    Looting has two jobs.
    #1: Don't fuck up the canon.
    #2: Grab everything you can without violating #1.

    The Transpace Guard keeps a list of worlds. Sometimes, you can't get what you need by farming or manufacturing.
    It's the Looters' jobs to get Staff, unique Items, interesting Technology, Blueprints, and anything that looks like it'd be tricky to make, but easy to grab.

    Looters' casualty rates are second only to Storage, because they go into worlds knowing well what they do will break the Law. but as long as it does not break the Canon, then all is well.

    Looters are also paid extremely well*. Well, if they're good at their jobs.
    Looters have a budget with which to Rent items, troops, and heroes.
    Looters then receive Dosh as a reward for turning in their loot.
    Get a lot of loot, then you get a lot of Dosh, you pay the Rent, and keep the rest for yourselves.

    Sound simple? Good.

    You, the players, are a small crew of Looters.
    You have a small ship, a small amount of funds, and a very small amount of trust from HQ.
    But, since small ships are cheap and SOMETIMES Looters distinguish themselves, there are thousands of new looter teams every month sent out. And of the 20 or so that come back, over 4.99% of them become rich and famous.

    Is looting basically a TG-approved group of Shippers? Because that's the vibe i'm getting.

    Also: I have a theory that Shippers do their trading in places in canons that are utterly lawless, like New Hong Kong or Roanapur, so that any investigating officers have to contend with canon natives mistaking them for actual law enforcement.

    Normally, you could choose which world to loot.
    But because you are new (and because I might as well show you how shit I am compared to Meta OP), your first world has been pre-planned.

    M I S S I O N _ B R I E F I N G:
    Scouts have located a mansion showing reality distortions. Surveillance confirmed that there canon characters there, kidnapped and charmed out of their own worlds, to serve as a harem for an obese, hairy, smelly person.
    Scouts maintained position for a week, waiting to catch the Shipper vessel that is selling these women.

    But, no vessel ever came.
    THAT means that, there's something in this mansion that allows the owner to pull women from other worlds.
    Whatever it is, it's useful technology, and we want it.
    Go in there and steal it.

    #1. Find out what's allowing those characters to come in from other worlds, and swipe it.

    #1: These women aren't likely to stay with a fat slob of their own free will. Find out how they're being controlled.
    #2: Despite having a harem, there must be a place where the Mansion owner goes to be alone. Find such a place, and our assassins' team will have a much easier job.
    #3: There's bound to be lots of loot in this place. Collect all the interesting loot you can. Note that we have no use for jewellery, but particularily unique items, magic items, tech, and powerups are all good.

    EXTRA GOALS (not required, but if you want to show off):
    #1: Disable or destroy whatever defenses the mansion has (if any)
    #2: Any canon characters you Loot now will be returned to their homeworld to preserve canon. Nonetheless, if you Loot one now, it means we won't have to deal with them later.
    #3: The mansion owner is likely very well guarded, and you don't have to take him out. But if you do ... well, that makes shit easier for us.

    #1: Don't kill any of the girls. You do this, you're fired.
    #2: Injuries to the girls' health and sanity may cause problems in returning them to their canons. Try not to do this.
    #3: Troops and Heroes are expensive to replace. Lose as few as you can.

    It's apparently bee sorted out with MetaOP.

    besides, after the great TG civil war (coming soon to a thread near you!) there's going to be a few changes in the transition from the Transpace Guard to the Editors. Probably quite significant ones, since the editors seem to have put a dead stop on using canon characters in their operations. I'm thinking it may not have been a purely pragmatic reason for that.

    The mansion's Canon is a modern earth Canon most closely associated with a Dating Simulation game. The game itself features randomly generated students, NOT canon natives.

    >Should we expect combat?
    It is unknown what the man himself may have looted - it is possible he has a weapon, or a means to mind control people.
    But what is certain is that he has charmed at least 3, up to an unknown limit, of different canon characters, many of whom can fight.

    We have confirmed the presence of three:
    Princess Peach, from the Mario canons.
    Renamon, from the Digimon canons.
    and Chun-Li, from Street Fighter.
    The last two definitely know how to fight.

    I'll give you lads a while to argue over what things you should take with you

    Also, if we needed a bruiser, we could see if we could get a Battletech Purifier mimetic battle-armor trooper. They can pack some serious firepower, and they have stealth capability as well. They can't stealth as well as people with cloaking devices or such, however.

    A good idea might be Nightcrawler, from the X-Men. He's capable of teleporting, which lets him bypass security and gives us a good exfiltration option, good in hand-to-hand, and canblend into shadows as part of his power. Not to mention, his image inducer should help as a disguise. The only problems would be his squeamishness with the messier parts of the work, but seeing as we aren't the ones that go around killing SUEs as a matter of course, it shouldn't come up that often.

    You may have a Terran Ghost for the same cost as an Auror.
    The Purifier ... costs too much if you are also taking the Auror. But you may send 1 purifier to do the job alone if you wish.

    An FFT thief is a valid choice.

    A Bag of holding is an excellent idea.

    You may have Nightcrawler + the Auror for almost all of your dosh. You would still have enough left over for the Bag of holding and some mundane tools.

    Well, I suggest Nightcrawler, and tbh, I'm not sure. He's got teleportation, natural stealth and HtH skills. Also, he's partially attuned to magic, and has some medical and mechanical skills.

    I'm thinking a combination of FFT thieves, Aurors and Ghosts, plus tools. If we can off the target, we should definitely take that chance, and 'crawler probably wouldn't want to do it. Unless human resources tweaked him some...god, that revelation makes me uncomfortable. I really hope that the editors revised the policy. By a lot.

    Two separate canons are separate. Unless they intersect and run into each-other, it is possible to perserve both.
    If two separate and incompatible canons run into each-other, we try to pry them apart. If this is impossible, it's a "Shit happens" situation, and one has to go.

    on a related note, what about adaptions in multiple media? is the Haruhi light novels different from the Anime? Are the megaman games distinct from the cartoons, the comics, etc.?

    They are. And in the Megaman games, there are entire branches depending on what Megaman was able to accomplish in those games.

    There is in fact a Canon where Wily does it himself.

    By "Harm" you mean "do not kill unless absolutely necessary", right? Is he still OK with doing nonlethal physical attacks to disarm/temporarily disable opponents?

    If yes to both, then that's probably OK. We're doing a thief-esque type job here. Ideally, we shouldn't need to kill anyone (but we may need to blackjack a few or otherwise render them unconscious).

    So. Your plan is to go with:
    An Auror
    A Bag of holding
    A Multitool

    you mean with it?
    also we should probably get an invisiblity cloak or 2 for the charactors then so they could have an easy time hiding while not teleporting.

    this game feels slightly different from /tg/quest since our job is to steal stuff as much as humanly possible, so bugging probably isn't going to help, whereas invisibility may.

    Yes, I did fuck that up. You are at 97% DOSH with it.
    The invisibility cloak - as in, permanent invis anywhere - is 8% dosh.

    A lockpick and some two-way communication devices would be nice.

    Unless we already have a communication device from the get-go. In which case, we should probably go with the lockpicks only (unless we can get both the motion sensor and the lockpicks for 1% of our DOSH).

    Maybe an under-door camera, to help with knowing where we're going. The ME3 Multitool can use the Holoblade to cut out locks with ease. We can communicate with the squad, so we don't need walkie-talkies.Yep, either an under-door camera or a motion scanner/tracker. OR, a Heartbeat Sensor from Modern Warfare 2. Good stuff.
    No, he listed it off as without the Multitool.
    Knowing where your foes are so as to avoid them would help with the rolls to dodge them, so I'm voting for motion trackers and cameras for smart movement.

    multitool probably covers the lockpicks.

    Here's a quick summary of what we're doing and how difficult it is:

    #1. Find out what's allowing those characters to come in from other worlds, and swipe it.

    >Extremely Low Difficulty

    #1: These women aren't likely to stay with a fat slob of their own free will. Find out how they're being controlled.
    >Low end of Moderate Diff.

    #2: Despite having a harem, there must be a place where the Mansion owner goes to be alone. Find such a place, and our assassins' team will have a much easier job.
    >High end of Moderate Diff.

    #3: There's bound to be lots of loot in this place. Collect all the interesting loot you can. Note that we have no use for jewellery, but particularily unique items, magic items, tech, and powerups are all good.
    >Low end of Moderate Diff.

    EXTRA GOALS (not required, but if you want to show off):
    #1: Disable or destroy whatever defenses the mansion has (if any)
    >Low end of Moderate Diff.

    #2: Any canon characters you Loot now will be returned to their homeworld to preserve canon. Nonetheless, if you Loot one now, it means we won't have to deal with them later.
    >Extremely Difficult

    #3: The mansion owner is likely very well guarded, and you don't have to take him out. But if you do ... well, that makes shit easier for us.

    Renamon is probably acting as a sentry. I dunno its abilities for sure, but it's a fox anthromorph. It likely has sharp hearing, sight, and smell.

    Perhaps the dark spot of the house is good.

    The hedge maze is likely to be easier to hide in... but it's a maze; navigating it would take time, and cheating and scaling the botanical walls would be somewhat noisy.

    We can probably assume that Benny's shenanigans have caused people to assume that he's a burglar and not just a British comedy routine.

    The people will probably be on high alert, but they'll likely be chasing Benny. If we enter the mansion, we may have a distraction there to keep everyone occupied.

    If we wait, they may catch Benny then resume sleeping. Renamon may even turn in as well. But this would likely take a long time.

    Nightcrawler spots a woman in a Pink dress sleeping here. Or, rather, stirring and complaining about noise.
    There is one door here, and a decent amount of furniture.
    Heartbeat monitor spots a heartbeat beyond a wall nearby, two heartbeats moving along a hallway, and the heartbeat of the sleeping woman.

    And yes, you did just teleport into a bedroom without checking first if the occupant was awake. Fortunately due to a rather decent roll on your part, you may still take one action before she wakes up fully.

    The bag has sufficient air for 10 minutes as per its description. However, even a roll of 1 would give you the wis check: People do not like being stuffed into bags, and prefer to fight back or flee than be stuffed in one.
    Your craft spots that the taller plants in the garden are, in fact, not natural looking. They seem artificial and out of this world.
    One, in particular, seems to be a hut or tent grown entirely out of strange leaves.
    It also notices that Renamon has gone inside to see what all the goddamn fuss is about.

    Peach, who lacks spell resistance, resumes her slumber. She may still wake if you make a lot of noise or move her.
    The Auror now reports that he can see in the dark.

    You are in Peach's bedroom. There is 1 door here, and much furniture.
    Through a wall, there is a heartbeat.
    Peach's heartbeat has slowed down considerably.
    The fast-moving hallway heartbeats have changed - one is now walking slowly, the other has moved quickly and is now out of your view.

    ... Lengthy chase scene my ass. Benny got caught on the first roll.

    It's 10 minutes of watching heartbeat monitors - 5 dots, 4 moving quickly and 1 moving slowly, chase around the house. From this, you gain a good idea of where the hallways are.
    In 15 minutes, you hear police sirens.
    Your scout craft confirms Benny being escorted to a police cruiser by this woman. Benny is handcuffed, then searched, then proceeds to run at 60 km/h down the street with a police car chasing him.

    You see two heartbeats walking down the hallway towards the door to Peach's room.

    The mirror is slipped a fraction of an inch under the door.
    What you see is an obese man, and Renamon, heading towards the door to Peach's room. The obese man looks worried, Renamon seems to not give a shit as always.
    On your heartbeat monitor, the heartbeats nearby are:
    Peach, Asleep
    Someone in an adjacent room
    Renamon and the Owner approaching
    And your own heartbeats, of course.

    It's a rather large mansion. The heartbeat monitor does not reach all the way across it.

    Renamon's here, making it too dangerous to fight him without Stupefy and teleportation speed (and a good deal of luck). Still, can't really see a way out without teleporting out of the way and possibly losing the target.

    The Auror could knock Renamon out with a sleep spell, then Nightcrawler could nab the Grognard and keep him silent. The Auror could then sleep the Grognard also.

    From the nearby room, you hear a complaint.
    "What's going on in there? I'm trying to study!"
    The heartbeat in the adjacent room begins to move.
    The scout craft can hover close to the house, but it will make the noise of a helicopter. Typically it glides from place to place.

    The Auror successfully casts Silencio on his first target. However, attempting to cast it on the second, the window again flashes green and the Auror grunts again.
    He reports that spellcasting becomes more difficult the more times a spell is cast.
    He has not been hit by leaves.

    The Auror reports that the green flashes are a form of "Spell shield". Designed more for keeping things IN than letting them get out, but nonetheless effective against many different kinds of magic that could be used to escape.
    Nightcrawler attempts to teleport outside. He is met with an intense green flash in the window, and Nightcrawler appears adjacent to the window.
    "Iz no good, can't get out zat way".

    The Spell Shield is likely adapting to the spells the Auror is casting that are related to escaping (i.e. silencio to dampen footsteps, etc.). Sleep might still work OK, but it may get harder to cast after a while.


    From what Peach said, she doesn't sound too happy to be here (or just bored as hell). This may indicate that the girls here are merely cooperating because they can't do anything else. If we do talk to her, best to indicate for her to whisper. Also have Nightcrawler/Auror ready to apply sleepy-time to Peach if she starts to get agitated.

    Let's ask her about the routine and everything. Turn on the charm/non-threateningness.

    Now, how can we phrase something to check if Peach is charmed or merely just here against her will? The mission briefing said that they were being controlled somehow, and that they were kidnapped or charmed.

    Peach may be one of the kidnapped ones, rather than one of the charmed ones.

    right, so the people may be actually conscious when we port them. 'crawler can deal with that with a bit of the old bamf-fu AKA proting a lot till the people who aren't used to it get dizzy.

    Shouldn't we take Grognard, too?

    Shit, that's gonna bite us in the ass, isn't it.

    We should have knocked peach out and used Legitmency or whatever to try mindreading.

    Teleporting into an overgrown patch in the garden, the Auror and Nightcrawler remain silent.

    Equipment check.
    Omnitool still here.
    Heartbeat monitor spots something in the garden.
    Miscellaneous tools still here.
    Flash bombs still here.
    Nightcrawler was struck twice by Peach.
    The Auror is unconscious at least for now.

    A commotion is being kicked up in the mansion.

    What do you do now?

    Legilimency is what you are thinking of mate.
    If I remember correctly those spells take time to do right though, and botching that...is dangerous.

    I did suggest using stupefy, but it doesn't appear that suggestion was acuired in a timely manner.

    The plant girl might be in the garden. Get the fuck out of there.

    OK, so we essentially went FUBAR. We should have just got out when we had the chance.

    OK, we need to think about this for round 2. Go in via the roof, using disillusionment charm or bedazzling hex for invisibility (we've not used them yet, so shield should be fine with that)

    That, or investigate the suspiciously large Garden and those fake trees.

    As sad as I am to say this I think it may be time to lay low. If MSG3 got anything right it is that when security infiltration is detected you need to lay low. Teleporting back to the ship is a must at this point I fear.

    rolled 77, 2 = 79

    There are many ways this could have gone better.
    In fact I'm surprised it went this poorly.
    I imagined you'd just do something easy like Invis on Nightcrawler and just have him derp about from room to room picking up everything.

    You teleport back to the ship without much issue. The Auror regains consciousness. Let's see if he has any useful input on the shield.

    Let's also see if anyone can track you.
    >> Captain The Obvious The 01/26/12(Thu)01:07 No.17678522
    Wizard is KO'd. Gotta wait for him to regain energy. We were not given a timelimit on this. Lets fall back somewhere secluded and safe and reassess our circumstances.
    >> Anonymous 01/26/12(Thu)01:09 No.17678539

    Yeah. Time to abort mission. This just got all sorts of unfeasible.

    We'll just leave this to another team with more funding and have them steamroll it with frontliners.

    The Auror notes:
    Whatever's causing the shield has to be in the CENTER of the mansion. The closer you get, the stronger the effect.
    There's also an anti-teleport ward, but it only prevents going OUT, not in.

    The people in the house can't track you.
    In fact, they can't track you SO much, that their attention is thoroughly diverted.

    A demonic dog of some kind, followed closely by a blue tiefling in dark robes, runs off in a random unrelated direction.

    I can't help but wonder what Peach meant by girls coming and going.

    Are they being sent back, or what?

    Lie low, for now. don't bring the craft in close, keep it at minimum safe distance both to avoid detection and out of retaliatory fire.

    You know, considering Bootleg OP's ideal team, I can't help noticing that the magic shield wouldn't have come up at all. Dang.

    Maybe Kurt can take a page from the book of Wolverine, disappearing from the hunters only to stage a fighting comeback. For that matter, now we're out of the shield, could Kurt ambush people hunting in the grounds one-by-one? Once we had the Auror revived on the ship, Kurt could BAMF-fu them, and drop them for Auror to fix them. Or at least bind them (might beed somthing special for Peach-jelly-legs and jelly-fingers hex, perhaps?)

    Accompanying the Blue tiefling are:
    a Geodude,
    and pic related, surfing on a vine.

    >Yeah. Time to abort mission.

    >> Captain The Obvious The 01/26/12(Thu)01:14 No.17678572
    Alright, not a complete botch then. Lets lay low and do some recon. Preliminary recon- Taboo the name of the captor. This will tell us who says the word and where they are located. Duration is not described in spell description.

    Description: A jinx which may be placed upon a word or a name, so that whenever that word is spoken, a magical disturbance is created which alerts the caster of the Taboo to the location of the speaker. Any protective enchantments in effect around the speaker are broken when the Tabooed word is spoken aloud.

    >Are they being sent back, or what?
    That seems likely.
    >Taboo the name of the captor.
    Good idea!
    Now, did you remember to find out what his name was?
    >> Anonymous 01/26/12(Thu)01:17 No.17678600
    Oh. It's the girl from Wakfu.

    If we loot her, can we have her transferred to Holtz's sector?

    OK, mission is apparently back on, because the attention span of ADD-addled goldfish.

    I think we've learned a valuable lesson from that attempt, mind you-we're a stealth team. We have to keep that in mind. No more attempted kidnappings, except as optional objectives. Remember this post:>>17676135
    This is what is feasible for us to accomplish. Let's strategise accordingly.

    I take it that we make good use of transfiguration spells?

    We'll probably have to penetrate the deep depths of the mansion at this rate. Do we have anything that can scan the structure of the mansion?

    may I suggest we investigate the hedgemaze before entering the mansion proper, gents?
