    'Cuz you took out the trash, right?

    I am running low on subtitles and jokes, but regardless, TG QUEST!!!

    Last thread: http://suptg.thisisnotatrueending.com/archive/17794854/

    Short Summary: You have managed to find the weakness of the Arch-Sue Sapphirus, laying her low and draining her powers. While she snivels at your mercy, in a near comatose state, your SCP troops place her into containment for transport back to base.

    You are currently still in orbit over her version of Earth. With the bounty on Sapph, you will probably get new requisitions when you turn her in. The prospect of arguing over what to take tickles the back of your brain.

    Longer Summary that needs updating: http://pastebin.com/3ATuVKRQ

    Well, lets head back then.
    And lets hear a debriefing from Spike, Tosh, and the Sandmen about their stay at the Magic Kingdom.
    Did they find anything of interest, and did anything seem wrong besides the lingering presence of Sapph/Sapphirus?

    Fuck year!
    Step 1: see if tosh and spike made it through the book during the last boss fight.
    Step 2: See if Cheryl us up to being mind boosted again to contact tosh, wherever he may be.
    Step3: warp back to base, collect bounty

    Goddammit you retards, read what's happened and what's been planned before you post.

    First, get that bitch (Sapphirus) into the containment bay and surround her with reality emitters. Also have SCP troops on her with Reality Disruptor Rifles.

    While we're still here, have the Indefatigable replicate a couple thousand dollars worth of cash in US dollars and equivalent amounts in Japanese Yen.

    Have UNIT and Delta Greens buy some of the good stuff for our bar and for Holtz.

    They couldn't tell the effects of Sapph's death, as they were gone by then. Other than that, they don't have much to report, which is a good thing. It means Sapph didn't have enough time to meaningfully change the canon yet.

    It isn't hard to make a few 'party runs' to the booze shops before you leave.

    When all is said and done, you make the jump home are are once again greeted by the smiling face of Lt. Col. Eva.

    >> MetaQuest OP 02/06/12(Mon)21:17 No.17836402
    Data's new idea was based on himself, but used a nanite "bloodstream" to continually effect repairs. He seems quite excited about it when you ask.

    Melchoir dons the ring, and the three Gurus inform you that to reforge Gurthang, they will need 2 Righteous Orbs, 20 Pyrium Bars, 20 Primordial Essences, and 10 boar fangs.


    They DO tell you that they can reforge it as is in the Storm's magitech lab, but this will cause it to drop in power. To restore it fully you will need to take them to a place strong with mana for the forging so they can draw on it with crafting. Additionally, if you gather certain magical reagents, they may be able to enhance the sword. They are uncertain to what exact items, but leave it to you. Any suitable item usable in reforging a sword may have an effect on it.

    And I meant level 11. Really.

    Research is progressing smoothly on the lance. The scientists project half to a full week before completion.

    Alright, then we will be on the lookout for a source of magic to fuel the reforging process.

    Since they can't work on Gurthang, can they and the Techno-Wizards create a magical bow for Finalon? Something with some extra magical penetration and generally be harder-hitting than just plain ceramic with super-alloy arrowheads.

    This was mentioned before the break, but can we get a few of our guys trained up with the Medic and his mediguns? We should have 3 now: Uber, Kritzkrig and the Quick Fix. In theory, this should allow us to triple our healing capacity AND deploy other ubers on the BLU team. The people using the guns won't get any benefits, but it will help when we need to spam healing and have options for how we attack with BLU. If we have a day here, I would like them to get started now so they aren't rookies when we put them on the ground.

Only a day of sims probably won't make them masters of dodging copious amounts of missile hell or such (barring lucky rolls), but if we're headed for a SRW canon there's no telling what crossovers will have occurred.

    Having our VF pilots/Char/Crowe know that Battlemechs are in fact not walking tanks, and they will charge you into the ground and rip your arm off and beat you to death with it if you give them half the chance will undoubtedly be useful. Likewise, familiarizing our Battlemech pilots and armor crews with Mobile Suit tactics and such may quadruple their life expectancy.

    >> Anonymous 02/06/12(Mon)22:54 No.17837713


    Here were some proposed abilities/traits for VP-98 in previous threads:

    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.

    User-friendly Interface: For some reason, people don't find VP-98 very threatening. Maybe it was a service droid in a past life? Perhaps it was designed to not look like a freaky flying spider-droid thing? Whichever the case, VP-98 does not immediately attract suspicion when sighted, and receives a bonus in social interactions with peoples of all shapes and sizes.
    >> Anonymous 02/06/12(Mon)22:56 No.17837736
    Others are:
    Durable Chassis: VP-98 is now capable of remaining functional in extremely harsh conditions, and is capable of withstanding all known handheld weapons with only superficial damage. (VP-98 would still be vulnerable to heavy artillery)

    "I don't know what I'm looking for but by god I'm going to find it" - VP-98 is very likely to stumble over things interesting to us, even if we are not specifically looking for them.

    "Straight to the point" - if we DO know what we're looking for, or have a vague idea at least, VP-98 goes straight to the most relevant point by the easiest path possible.
    >> Anonymous 02/06/12(Mon)22:59 No.17837775
    For comparison, VP-99's abilities are
    >- "Miraculous Survivor": Whether it is luck, fate, or particularly good damage-avoidance protocols, this unit can (and has) survived where many other units have fallen, often unscathed.
    >- "The Path Less Traveled": VP-99 is particularly adept at finding hidden passages and unused paths, or otherwise finding ways around that have the least amount of traffic.

    ...I'd say User-Friendly Interface/Pure Pazaak and I don't know what I'm looking for.

    Ever heard of the saying 'it's better to die on your feet than live on your knees?' I think that's what they were thinking of. Protoman actually comes out and asks if there are any 'who value courage over life.' If they had the will to fight for themselves, Proto would probably have defected then and there. But they didn't, so there was no point fighting for them, as they'd just got dominated by the next tyrant.

    But this is a massive derail. I'm guessing that we may be dealing with somebody who brought things outside of the canon to help either Wily or Megaman. either way, it has to be dealt with.

    Hey, if we can nab him (seeing as he's not appeared in Protomen canon, if he shows up he's an outsider) We might as well. Besides, he's good for dealing with single combatants as well as large groups.

    OK, I can't think of any megaman canon with spaceships (other than Star Force, and that's pretty unlikely to be this one) so that may be a good point of origin to look at.

    Well, we're workan on a lynchpin, BootlegOP, so I'm not particularly worried at present. We're in a Megaman canon, possibly even that of the Protomen, and we good do with your input.

    One thing to consider: In the protomen, the whole city is under constant electronic surveillance. That will make moving around difficult, so it may be best to find a blind spot to insert at. Also, there may be a curfew enforced by murderbots, so get off the streets at night, unless you feel like pulling a Sniper Joe.

    Teach them how to fight, teach them what it means to stand up, because you have to remember that by this point in time most of the people have grown up under Wily's leadership with all the original rebels executed and they likely learned from Wily's history books. Like even just hijack a weapons factory and give power to the people.
    Instead he just charged up to Wily's front steps and was disgusted that no one wanted to fistfight an army of robotic snipers that know neither pity nor fear.
    It's easy to be all high and mighty when you're a robot built to wreck Wily's shit, but from my perspective, it seems pretty much as logical as just going on a killing spree ending in suicide to reduce the number of people working for WIly.

    The Storm detects multiple reality distortions scattered around the planet, a rather large number of them, in fact. However, there is one stronger by degrees nestled at the planet's core.

    In addition, though it has Earth's orbit, according to the Storm's scans on seismological and continent placement data, the planet is NOT Earth.

    The Storm is easily able to decipher a large amount of transmissions, which appear to be civilian in nature.

    The Indefatigable locates a veritable graveyard of derelict and destroyed vessels in extreme orbit around the planet, which is indeed "Hyrule." Several wrecked Arwings and Gradius fighters are identified among the wreckage. The RVF locates a great deal of derelict ground vehicles and abandoned defense installations on the moon.

    Scans of the ships in orbit reveal a number of iconic ships somewhat altered in form to better fit in with the 'atmosphere' of this place. The RVF manages to identify a bulkier, less well kept Great Fox among them.

    The full list will take some time to produce. Most of the ground vehicles are massive TANKs, the anti-orbital defense vehicle responsible for battling the Space Invaders.

    The Great Fox is manned and in stable orbit. It's not abandoned. Many ships are orbiting the planet that are crewed and operational, it's just that there is a considerable debris ring as well.

    >. You do manage to locate the next four strongest distortions and log their locations in the massive City, though.
    Strange. The four megacorps are part of the setting, so they can't be the distortion.

    We may well use an Observer, or VP-99's marvelous "Lol I don't die" exploration, along with sensors from the Storm and RVF-25 to see if we can identify what the distorations are.

    One bad part about this setting is that we're going in blind. We know the setting, but NOT what's wrong with it.

    We have Aurors that can scry,
    Farseers that can see far,
    Tosh that can contact a wide variety of things,
    and Cheryl, the alpha psyker.

    Have the Aurors Scry the rough site of these distortions.
    Have the Farseers see if they can get a picture of the man or men who are causing the most distortions.
    Have Tosh see if he can psychically contact any of the Spirits of Hyrule. If the spirit of any of the Links or Zeldas survived, that's who he should get in contact with.
    And Cheryl just sort of acts as a Turbocharge 0vercl0cking unit for the other magic users.

    Before we send out any probes to get a lock on where enemies are, keep teleport tracking on them. None of these enemies can CANONICALLY disable and control a robot with robot hax sue mind powers, but it never hurts to be careful.

    Basically: Information Information Information.

    If we locate any scrapped or disabled robots in a junkyard, send them up to the Gavs, Data, and X-com Engineers to see if they can pull any useful data from its core, and/or get a sense of how the robots are made, so that we may learn how to unmake them.

    Canonically, neither Wily, the Space Pirates or the Foot clan have good sensors. Robotnik probably does, though, because he can see sonic approaching in time to put his robots everywhere.

    While we do so, ensure everything is bounced off at least 2 satellites, and that reading data happens to have AT LEAST one case of "Stare at a computer screen" or "Listen to a computer speaker" so we can't be tracked by any digital means.

    Don't fuck with contacting any other ships directly. Feel free to stealth-scan them for life signs, but unfortunately "Yep there's life" tells us fuck all about whether it's worth contacting said life, and "Nope there's no life" tells us that there may well be hostile robots swarming over the place, or it may be an empty derelict. Doesn't hurt to know, but we won't get much useful information.

    Calling fanfiction "Canon-less" is incorrect, especially until we've figured out who or what are the reality distortions here.
    While it's true that it's not established in Canon whether Megaman, Sonic, Samus and Splinter overthrow the corps, and it's also not established whether the Corps capture and execute all four above,
    I'm pretty sure it's Canon that sparkly rainbow furries never came out of the sky and started vomiting peace and rainbows on everything.

    Maybe canon-less was not precisely the correct term. There are defined canons if picked apart, yes. But the whole doesn't make any recognizable canon.

Or maybe the whole existence sparked from the disturbance deciding to make a completely new planet out of nowhere composed of a myriad of canons, causing its own canon.

    Not really.
    Machines are machines, they don't literally have evil imprinted on their sources.
    It's just that any sources of magic are likely corrupted or tainted, if they weren't vile from the very beginning.
    Magic is more sensitive to evil than science.

    Three of the four distortions do indeed correspond to Wily Corp HQ, Egg Industries HQ, and MetPharm Regional HQ, with the fourth appearing to be in a slums area in Wily Corp territory. Mouse is able to discern that the area has been declared a restricted zone, and a cordon of JOEs keeps people out.

    Mouse is able to gather all the information available to the public on the three HQ buildings, and a little that's classified, producing rough floor plans for the ground floor on all of them, and outlining a few possible points of entry, as well as defenses in place. This is of course, assuming you find cause to go there.

    Of course, the one at the center of the planet, Mouse can't gather much on.

    We need to send our Observers in to monitor the 4 strongest reality distortions. Fortunately we have 4 Observers. They should be careful, because we're unsure about the detection capabilities of the natives. If they're detected, the Observers are to bug out and return to orbit for pickup. Beam them out if they look like they'll be destroyed. Any sightings will be passed off as rival corporate prototypes.

    We also need local fashions.
    Have the Indefatigable and the Hercules fab up appropriate corporate clothing for Wily Corp, MetPharm, and Egg Industries.

    Have Mouse prepare false identities in all three systems if he can.

    The Farseers describe what they saw, what they know to be the being at the center of the planet, the strongest distortion. They describe a bloated figure that may have been humanoid once, but now bears more resemblance to a great black blob. Skulls dot his massive form like boils on the oil-black, rubbery flesh that comprises his body. He hangs from a massive cavern with strands of dark slime wrapped around him and hanging from the walls like some disgusting web, or half-finished cocoon. Corpses and still-living mortals alike dangle from the ceiling, encased in slimy pods, while the monstrous creature rolls and turns, as if tracking the invisible with two lidless, blank eyes. A forest of tiny tendrils under a maw of yellowed teeth quiver and writhe like antennae.

    We're talking to deities, so we might be able to get some divine assistance on this one. Ask them how close they are to their full power. We ask because we may need to ask for some assistance in cleansing the distortions and we can't think of anything better for the job than the help of the Goddesses of Power, Courage, and Wisdom.

    We already know that it's the 8-bit Dystopia setting. We, as members of the Command Crew, know about /tg/ homebrew settings and quest Canons. We're also aware of the phenomenon known as Stable Crossovers.

    I should note the Farseers are still in trance and you can ask them to "look around" for specific things as well for a time.

    The Aurors produce an image of...

    A MetPharm laboratory, in what looks like a heavy containment section, many mutated and alien beasts howl and claw at the tubes they are trapped within. Armed guards patrol the area while a number of scientists in labcoats puzzled over something set out on an analysis table. It looks like a series of three gemstones, with gold metalwork over them.

    The slum area swiftly blurs, and below a network of abandoned tunnels and buildings, a number of JOE-Units patrol around what looks like an archaeological dig. A robot paces around the area, a buzzsaw prominent on his head.

    A high tech robotics laboratory within Egg Industries. Robotnik himself chuckles with glee as he works on something, producing some kind of new robot, some variation on Metal Sonic. The Aurors get the sense this is his personal lab.

    Wily Corp, a situation or planning room of some kind. Dr. Wily stands, surrounded by a few Robot Masters as he looks over a large number of reports and data streaming in from all over the globe. His hand suddenly twitches and he reaches for something in his pocket, withdrawing something you are fairly sure has no place even in this mish-mash. An Imperial data-slate.

    Something's up with that new version/upgrade of Metal Sonic.

    Yes, a Stable Crossover. The base setting of 8-bit Dystopia is a Stable Crossover, but there are currently Meta-Contaminants, like the Imperial data-slate that Wily has.
    Those are the targets; not all of the reality distortions are caused by SUE's. Some, probably most, are caused by Meta-Contaminants that don't belong in this Crossover.

    Right, the Dig seems the least well defended, so we should keep that in mind.

Can we get a look at it? Also what robot masters are with him, in case we have to fight them later.

    Not sure what the three gemstones are-anyone have better ideas?

    And can we get a closer look at Robotnik's lab, there must be something different about this Metal Sonic than those that came before to cause the distortion.

    Also look closer at the digsite, see if there's any clues.

    Well, this world seems straightforward up until we gotta deal with the thing in the center of the planet. That's not gonna be fun. Here's a theoretical plan of attack. Rough draft, feel free to tinker with it.

    - Steal the dataslate from Wily, remove/delete anything he's taken from it (maybe even a little memory erasure from the Aurors just to be sure!).

    - Trash and/or steal the distortion-causing part from Metal Sonic. Possible memory erasure here, too.

    - Explore dig site. Find whatever they're searching for first and deal with it. This may involve a brief firefight due to armed and alert guards...

    - Ask the Goddesses what's up with their gems. If this is a LoZ canon and they're accessible, then their jewels should be a stabilizing influence on this Crossover due to the fact it's Hyrule.. They also seems to be getting the beasties they're in the room with riled up. Possible beam-up into containment and study them to figure out their distortion and fix it?

    - The slime/ooze/whatever monster down in the planet is likely this world's boss. Cross reference it against Greater Unclean Ones, Dark Matter, and.. And maybe even Ganondorf.

    I am not looking forward to the last bit at ALL.

    None that I can think of with TRIPLE OVERCRITS.

    1. Deal with Wily
    a. Steal Dataslate
    b. Remove info from Wily's memory
    c. Make backup of all data on computers, especially experimental robot plans.

    2. Deal with Eggman.
    a. Find out what causes distortion
    b. Steal or destroy it and Metal Sonic
    c. Remove info from Eggman's memory

    3. Go to Digsite
    a. Find out what's causing distortion
    b. Deal with guards
    c. Steal or destroy distortion

    4. Deal with Gems
    -more info needed

    5. Kill, destroy, or turn main boss back to normal.

    Planning that way.

    Gah! This canon is such a tease! There's some much stuff that might be lootable, and that we want to loot, but we can't get!

    if we get the chance:
    >If we locate any scrapped or disabled robots in a junkyard, send them up to the Gavs, Data, and X-com Engineers to see if they can pull any useful data from its core, and/or get a sense of how the robots are made, so that we may learn how to unmake them.

    ...and remake them.

    So we've agreed for the Aurors:
    1.Study Wily's Dataslate to see what he got from it. Possibly see which robot masters he's packing.
    2.study Robotnik's lab to confirm what specifically is causing the distortion, most likely metal sonic.
    3. Check out the layout of the digsite, and see if we can get a glimpse of what they're digging for.

    Next Thread Wednesday?
    That means tomorrow, Tuesday, is BOOTLEGGAN TIEM.
    I'll re-read the past bootleg notes, see if I can assemble a team for Crawlan.
