    Short summary: You have somewhat screwed up a plan to kill the Arch-SUE Sapphirus for the delicious, delicious bounty on her head. Losing Tosh, Spike, and the Sandmen to jailors in the Kingdom Hearts canon, you return to base to find that Holtz is already pissed off about something.

    Long summary not ENTIRELY up to date: http://pastebin.com/3ATuVKRQ

    "Now..." Holtz says, retrieving his golf club and striding back to the line of golf balls he had been slamming into the stacks of booze bottles set up on the other side of his office. "Before I begin, let me ask you a question. About how much shit do you think you can get done in one... maybe... MAYBE two weeks?"

    We can probably do another linchpin, maybe the one that Yellowman scouted out for us.

    Since we want another whack at Sapphirius and a chance to retrieve our team, we're not considering resolving the linchpin near that Canon.

    So, one linchpin.
    >> Anonymous 02/03/12(Fri)20:15 No.17794936
    One linchpin if we take a while, possibly two if we hurry.

    If it's as easy as our first few, maybe even 3 or more.

    >> Potential Writefag 02/03/12(Fri)20:21 No.17795025
    We could definitely do another linchpin, though we're hesitant to do the one by Sapphirius because we're worried the reset shockwave would kill the away team that got accidentally'd into Kingdom Hearts.

    Perhaps we should let that canon die down a bit and give them time to forget us before we come back like our ship's name suggests all up in their shit.

    Why? Is the situation that bad, Holtz? Are you in trouble? What's the situation on the homefront? ..Frankly, you acting this way has us worried.

    ..Shuts down? Oh, fuck.

    Okay, yeah; we can't afford to waste the lives of the away team. We're officially on lockdown to forces losses.

    "We know it's because of the bullshit brewing up between the Firemen and Messiahs, but have they given any official reason as to why we're getting cut off? There's no way we can be drawing away *that many* resources, and we've done our best to give back when we got some extra stuff."

    Guys, we CANNOT afford losses any more. We're gonna have to make this shit count. Comm back to the Storm, and tell them to put a rush on working out how to transit to the away team.. Unless Holtz happens to have the KH coords in his Meta atlas or something. Ask him if he does.

    "Well, while you were out, I was treated to a lovely little bit of news," Holtz says, swinging his driver around. "Let me tell you a story, kiddies. A loooooong, long time ago, Requisitions was into some very, very shady stuff. What amounted to slavery, really. After a prolonged controversy, high command had them close down those portions, and institute a series of reforms. Only it seems that SOME branches of Requisitions decided that what high command didn't know about wouldn't hurt them. Only it did. See, yesterday, everyone with a Meta-Comm was treated to a burst transmission containing a metric ton of data, all detailing just how inhumane our Human Resources branch actually is."

    Holtz pauses to line up another shot. "So add this fuel to the fire brewing already, and of course guess what happens? The Firemen side with the extremist Requisition branches, calls everyone else weak willed traitors, Messiahs are furious and close to taking up arms, High Command is ready to strangle the Requisition Directors for going behind their backs... If it was a mess before, it's a shitstorm now."

    Holtz smacks the golf ball with enough to bounce it off the metal walls of his office like some deranged superball. "But wait! There's more!"

    Soulcatcher Chips we can make already, from the Hercules.
    But cortical stacks would be better. With Doc Lazarus, we should be able to implant them without problems.

    We could also use Soul Gems, instead.

    Fortunately we already have a dozen reconstruction tanks.

    So, at the top of the next Requisition are:
    Meta-Comm Array and Cortical Stacks.

    If we can make our own reality emitters, we may end up supplying our sector discreetly (well, discreetly for a short while at least).
    We're also getting manufacturing up and running on our ship for technowizard weaponry, so we may be able to produce that.
    We'll need raw materials though, so harvesters, processing facilities, etc.

    We may end up working with sector HQ (or a hidden base in the sector) and using our knowledge and general sector resources to make a supply base.

    Ask him if it's permitted for us to launch our own looting operations, provided we do it as a subordinate to our main operations. I mean, we seem to have got away with doing some looting of the LOTR canon. Perhaps if we formed a dedicated looting department...

    Also: we need to get any and all Transpace Guard bases in our sector back up to functionality, possibly establishing new ones if we can. They're the only way we're getting reinforcements from now on, until requisitions decides to let us have stuff again.

    How do we go about collecting the bounty on Sapph from the Shipper confederation, anyway? Can we ask for goods from them (under the proviso it won't damage the canon)

    Also: we need to seriously consider our next hero choices extremely carefully. We may not be getting any for while, maybe not at all if things go really bad.

    Holtz reaches into his breast-pocket and pulls out a remote, pressing a button on it as a wall-mounted telescreen slides out from behind a panel. The telescreen displays a vast array of skyscrapers and industrial buildings belching smoke into the sky, clearly a hub of industry.

    "This was the central base for Human Resources. Wait for it...." Holtz says, holding up a hand.

    A blinding flash rips across the screen, then another, and another, and another... Holtz throws down his driver and flips the bird to the screen as the base is consumed by multiple rising mushroom clouds.

    "BOOM! Nuclear launch detected, motherfuckers!" Holtz roars. He raises his hands to the heavens. "And not a single fuck was given by me or half of the Guard for the loss of those soul slavers."

    He lets his hands fall at the same time his face does. "Unfortunately, whoever saw fit to drop the hammer on them isn't being picky with their targets, because every OTHER branch of Requisitions suffered the same fate. So it's not just us, boys. Unless you have triple A clearance, Requisitions is going to be locking up tighter than a flea's ass at a collar convention."

    Holtz walks over to his desk and sits down, tenting his fingers. "You guys are goddamn lucky I've got some friends with pull there that AREN'T sociopathic manhunters."

    Uh... this is probably a bit late to be saying this...

    But wouldn't nuking the people who are supplying us with equipment and who are also very good at acquiring things without messing up canon essentially be shooting ourselves in the foot? Don't get me wrong I'm as disgusted as the next TG staff about the slavery stuff, but if the supply lines dry up, that's going to make for a LOT of editor groups desperate for equipment.

    And while I can't speak for all of the editors, that may result in lots of said desperate editor groups looting canons for equipment... only with MUCH less knowledge about how to go about doing such things without compromising canon. Editors take heavy losses because they're lacking in good equipment, they start looting shit the wrong way, then canons get breached and more reality distortions result, which requires the attention of MORE editors desperate for equipment. And the cycle continues.

    Why, it's almost as if someone's trying to sabotage the Transpace Guard, or destabilize it to the point of fracturing.

    Well, the point still stands.

    Also, Holtz, would it be possible to trade in some distinctly new technology we develop for clearance/goodies from what remains of requisitions? We seem to have an unusually robust science division.

    Also, if you have the coordinates to the KH canon, that would help us greatly in recovering our covert ops team. They've been with us from the beginning, and they're extremely good at what they do (most of the time). A quick recovery effort would go a long way to making us self-sufficient.

    >we will BUILD heroes!

    Seriously, in that cases, I suggest we recruit Tesla. Man knows his robots. PROXY might be useful, if only for the tech he represents.

    Hell, if we can't recruit the actual Zero, nabbing his schematics might be helpful. The most obvious place to get them would be from wily, preferably while he's in prison or distracted fighting Megaman, perhaps when he's in hospital at the end of Megaman 10. Failing that, the X-Hunters from X2 must have a copy.

    Because if we can't have the original, we can sure as HELL improve on the design.

    Unless anyone has a better foundation model in mind?

    And come to think of it, why use nukes? Those are REALLY low-tech and VERY detectable from remote launching sources compared to some of the other shit we have. I understand that it has a sort of vivid imagery associated with it, but so does using a Death Star to blow up a planet. Why not glass it from orbit? Or use some other horrible planet de-stratification device? Or some sorta antimatter bomb? Why just nuke the surface when we have a variety of weapons that would be more flashy or more efficient or more utterly destructive?

    Right, where would we get those schematics from?

    And if we can get Zero's learning system, the Variable Weapons system, or even copy chip technology, that tech alone would be very useful.

    Also, keep in mind we don't want to make them too powerful. If they get infected by the Maverick Virus/bodyjacked by Shodan/Get their switch flipped to 'evil', we need to be sure that we can but them down with our other forces.

    We also have 2 directions in which we can take our hypothetical robot soldier program, which I am designating TIN MAN.

    1. The 'Pantheon' route
    We mass-produce units based on a degraded designs from our original schematics. This will make them easier to replace and reduce the risk of rebellion, but will likely result in an inferior end product
    2) The 'Omega' route
    We don't just copy the schematics, we toil to take the technology to the very limit, resulting in a unit or units that can carve through most targets with ease, including the original template-in theory, anyway. Of course, if they go rogue, it'll take a lot of good people to take them out. And they will not be invincible by any means.

    You know, this has made me wonder.
    How, exactly, would Requisitions let themselves get nuked?
    While they're not a match for the military force of all editors combined, Requisitions could hold their own against Black OPs + HQ's defense fleet, and in doing so, guard themselves against nukes.

    This leads me to only one conclusion.
    Someone high up in Requisitions no doubt earned a LOT of promotions purely by his superiors all dying in nuclear fire, and either Firemen and the Messiahs are fighting IN Requisitions long enough for the nukes to land, or said Someone pulled enough strings to utterly disable Requisitions' armies of heroes. Possibly both.

    And THAT means, Requisitions has probably building its own goddamn superweapon or superarmy for the civil war.

    There's a faction out there who goes back in time, manipulating historical events, assassinating key figures, nuking entire nations, choking out freedom and liberty if necessary, in order to create worlds which will become willing client-states to an unending war.
    This is necessary, because they are the only thing standing between the rest of the Meta-verse and the Carthiginians, who throw their first-born sons into the furnaces of their god, who encourage their children to rape and murder their slave playmates, who are crazy enough to use an unstable micro-singularity as a power source for their standard infantry weapon.

    So, is there anything else we should discuss with Holtz before heading back to rectify the sector?

    Maybe we should begin to make note of what expertise we (as a sector) have in terms of making equipment, so we can see what will be available in the longer run. This is both at regular sector and our own types of production.

    We probably ought to see about getting extra safeguards around our own manufacturing areas.
    Maybe even move some portion of them to a hidden area for added security. Of course, this would be an excellent place to work on manufacturing lots of Mk II reality emitters and /or disruptors.

    If requisitions is going down, and we don't have support from black ops, getting reality emitters to our fleet through normal means may be impossible.

    There may be other resources he can add to this specific project. And if we're getting cut off from things like reality emitters, we'll want our sector to have its own production area of them. We don't want our one ship to have all the knowledge of Mk IIs when we take it out into dangerous territory often.

    Plan from planning thread:
    1. Come out of transit 1 light-hour away from Earth. Scan the local area, make sure we're clear.
    2. Micro-jump to behind the Moon, stay hidden on its far side.
    3. Observer, Al'Kesh, and Indefatigable cloak and check out the situation, see what the SUE's are doing. The Storm check how many Reality Distortions there are.

    Assassination plan:
    1. monitor the activities of Sapph and El from afar (preferably via Protoss Observer and through binoculars from half a mile away).
    2. See if Sapphirius is still around, or if she only appears when Sapph is killed.
    3a. Sapphirius only appears when Sapph is killed. Set up Delta Green sniping position within range of where Sapph and El sleep. Indefatigable and 2 Al'Kesh in range to support with their Reality Emitters, and Aurors on standby.
    4a. Put a bullet through each of their heads as they sleep.
    5a. Hit Sapphirius as she comes through with a concentrated magical and psionic attack from the Aurors and Cheryl-Farseers-Psions-Psi-Veterans. Once stunned, headshots with mass rifles/Reality Disruptor Rifles.

    3b. Sapphirius is around in human form. Set up Delta Green sniping position within range of where Sapph and El sleep. Indefatigable and 2 Al'Kesh in range to support with their Reality Emitters, and Aurors on standby.
    4b. Coordinated and simultaneous attack of putting bullets in the heads of Sapph and El, and hitting Sapphirius with a magical/psionic attack to stun her and then tearing her apart via transporters and more headshots with mass rifles/Reality Disruptor Rifles.

    Psionic attack should focus on making the target sleepy, and not feeling panic or fear, to minimize their resistance.

    For GTFO, we're using an Al'Kesh, and we can beam the Aurors back up before making our escape. The Al'Kesh regroups with the task force, and we use tactical micro-jumps to stay out of Sapphirus' range while pouring fire on her.

    Damnit guys, lets not get divided by debate the ethics of what requisitions may have done. Our job is to safeguard the canon, and until we have tidied up our sector of space, we need to focus on doing our jobs.

    If we wind up doing our own requisitions, then yes this point will require discussion. But until then, we need to focus on the present, not getting caught up in the past, or obsessing over the future.

If/When Sapphirus comes back, I want our ships to be able to warp in and out of range in multiple waves if we end up in another space battle.

    Methinks that Sapph/Ell may not be entirely "right" after their encounter with us.

    Sure, they were reincarnated by Sapphirus. But Sapph was pretty much mindraped by Cheryl/X-com psychics, which combines government-trained psychic torturers and all the wonderful experiences that Cheryl had in Silent Hill and Horror-world. Not to mention that Ell was dismembered and was probably fully aware of what was happening for about 3 minutes before he expired. Both of them stared into the face of horrible, horrible death before meeting their ignominious ends

    They may be planning something or trying to (unsuccessfully) cope with what just happened. These SUEs may be more than a little bit unstable right now.

In addition, it manages to get a read on the third distortion, confirming that it is indeed the portal book. It is in their basement. Currently they are arguing over how it got there and what might've happened in the last 2 days.

    ..And get ourselves jumped by all sides for blatant stealing of TG gear? lolno

    Observer, keep tabs on these two SUEs. Try to confirm coordinates on the book.

    Guys, can we get a trackable beacon made for detecting where it ends up? If we can, hook it to a drone (NOT ONE OF OUR HERO DRONES) and send it through. It can surely track down the away team, and since we'd have a beacon on it we can return the book, transit to KH, get our guys, transit back, and deal with the SUEs.

    ..Or would this take a Meta-Comma array to track any such beacon?

    Teleport out their brains, Put a bullet in their skulls, Teleport Cyanide and Nanites and Anthrax into them, rig the Daikatana to stab them in two as they sleep, drop some C4 in their houses, and of course have a plan to GTFO if shit goes haywire.

    We ambushed them before on their Monday morning, after they spent the weekend in KH, IIRC.

    Teleport the brains out. Send them directly to the Antaeus nanotank to have them dismantled, going to great lengths to destroy all traces of personality. Fill the bodies with as much poison as possible, making sure they're deader than dead.

    Wait, better idea, send down the teams to multiple hidden sniping positions, preferably where Delta-Green Spotters can keep overwatch not only on the SUE's, but on the other teams as well. If we take down the SUE's in one shot, we can have the teams synchronize-Snipe at Sapphirus's human form if she materializes on Earth form where Sapph and El die, from multiple locations, which should foul her ability to discern where the shots are coming from.

    Naturally, we need to get our spirited away team back from inside the book before we actually take the SUE's down.

    I honestly think we should send VP-99 into the book first, just by teleporting the damn thing into their basement.
    Scry basement, Teleport in, use book, while they sleep.
    You'd need to send an Auror, an Abjurer, a Farseer and a White Mage to all kibbutz around to find a way to dispel the book. But once that's done, teleport all but the VP-99 out and send the VP-99 in.

    VP-99 is our "find us a way around bad shit" Hero. VP-98 is more social interaction, and if we come across natives we'll need that skill to bluff and shit.

    An Auror ports in, holding up the mirror before him while looking away. The mirror shines brightly and as Sapphirus arrives, she instinctively looks away for a moment before returning her gaze to the mirror.

    In its reflection is a homely, chubby young black woman with a dark expression on her face. Sapphirus' eyes widen as she stumbles back.

    "N... no! That's not me!" she mumbles. "I'm a goddess! I'm a goddess!"

    The mirror shines brighter as her wings begin to catch fire, the feathers, scales, and flesh burning to ash and leaving the bone behind. Sapphirus falls to a knee.

    "I'm... I control... I am... I am... a goddess..." she whispers as her tails snap off and begin to crumble to dust as her now skeletal wings begin to fall apart. Her features begin to shift and contort as her colors dull and her halo shatters. A dull sob escapes her. "No... don't make me go back... This isn't my dream... This isn't my dream..."

    Her horns snap off and turn to dust as her features complete their change, leaving the woman in the mirror sobbing on the floor, clad in garish, gemmed clothes.

    "Weaknesses: Herself."

    Honestly, even if we don't get extra "DOSH", she is a hugely valuable research subject. If we can duplicate the process that happened with the mirror, life will get much better for us in the future.

    Once we understand something, we can control it. Once we can control it, we can weaponize it effectively.

    Sapphy was a special case in that her biggest weakness was "herself", but there is still probably knowledge that can be gleaned about how SUEs work. Either way, she is worth more alive than dead. Especially with requisitions about to disappear.

    Here's some suggestions I made in the planning thread for VP-98's traits:

    Pure Pazaak: VP-98 is extremely good at bypassing security without setting off a fuss, whether it be nasty guardian beasties with keen senses or an extremely complicated encryption system. VP-98 also has a knack for finding exits.

    You want me to do what?: VP-98 is capable of formulating a solid operating plan to achieve mission objectives, even if given a mission in an unknown world with vague mission parameters.

    Seeker Protocols: Whether it be personnel, artifacts, or legends, this droid can find it and ensure that it gets back to the right people. In addition, VP-98's black box//memory core will eventually find its way back to the command crew, if the droid is lost or otherwise destroyed.
