    TG QUEST!!!

    Last thread: http://suptg.thisisnotatrueending.com/archive/17835792/

    Short Summary: You have discovered the southernmost lynchpin is home to what you think is the 8-bit Dystopia canon, a place forgotten long ago by its creators, a stillborn setting where the worlds of early gaming were fused into a dark metropolis. Your psychics and spellcasters have proven their worth by managing an extraordinary series of scrying attempts, allowing you to spy on Dr. Wily, Dr. Robotnik, a MetPharm laboratory, and a dig site in the slums. If this were not enough, Tosh also managed to contact the three goddess, Farore, Din, and Nayru when he attempted to find a spirit to talk to.

    The question now is what information will you attempt to gather with these incredible results?

    Ask the goddesses of the three bearers of the Triforce, doomed to reincarnate forever more.
    Did they begin as the goddess Hylia, her champion, and the demon lord Demise?
    Also, time travel. Good idea?
    >> Anonymous 02/08/12(Wed)19:36 No.17862469
    Well, these three posts seem to some up our gameplan (pasting over for ease of reference). If the rest of the command crew can provide their input on it before implementation, that would good.
    Preliminary plan:

    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.

    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.

    For the Farseers:
    See if there's any notables among the corpses/prisoners.

    Where are the heroes that can help us, and how do we get in contact with them?
    When did the contaminants arrive here, and will they help us travel through time to prevent them from spreading?
    What is the creature at the core of the world; what was it before, and what did it combine with to become the thing it is now?

    Identify some of the wrecks both in the debris field and on the Moon's surface for later retrieval.

    Get into orbit of Hyrule, and begin scans of the three HQ's. Get detailed floor plans, see if there's any kind of interdiction or interference field in place.

    For everyone's understanding, the preliminary plan 1-5 is just an outline of what to do.
    The particulars and specifics are to be determined based upon results of our scrying and sensor scans.
    >> Anonymous 02/08/12(Wed)19:38 No.17862491
    Add this to Tosh's questions:
    "When did the creature at the core of the world change to its present form?"

    Or rather,

    "When did the contaminant arrive at the core of the world?"

    >(in ref to 1/3)
    This plan is solid. I can think of no particular objections to it. I might make an addendum, though: can the Aurors pinpoint the locations they see solidly enough that they might be able to apparate there? Not right now, but if we need to in future. Or the past, even.

    Also, see what creatures are being studied at the Gems site, as well as any security arrangements. Always helps to know what we're dealing with. And we might be able to loot some of those beasties, too. Although they should be a lower priority than the robots (be they Wily or Robotnik).

    I can't help but wonder: might Metal Sonic himself be the unknown quantity? I can't recall reading about him in any of the 8bit dystopia threads. And he is pretty wanked, so it would likely be a very disruptive element, shifting the balance of power significantly. If he himself is the element in question, we should take him for analysis. But DO NOT activate him. He's powerhungry, and we'll wind up cursing his sudden yet inevitable betrayal. Also keep such a fact in mind when working on our robo/tg/uys. Perhaps we should give them 30 years of ethical testing (via a timedilation field provided by the sages or tech, preferably being only 30 seconds on our end) before activation.

    Also: tell the salvage crews to prioritise salvageable gear, but wrecks are also viable for scrap and tech.

    First we should clarify with the goddesses that technically we aren't here to save this world from the corruption that fills it, but merely to remove the contaminants whose presence distorts reality.
    You know, maintaining the cosmic order and all that, they probably understand, but I don't want them to get the wrong idea and mistake us for heroes.

    Additionally for the Farseers, see if the creature at the heart of the world has become aware of our presence yet.

    That's a good clarification to make. As goddesses, they should understand the whole "Ascended are not to interfere in the matters of mortals" schtick.

    "Dey say no, mon."

    The Aurors are able to zoom in on the Dataslate, and manage to show enough of the flickering information on its screen that your scientists swiftly come to a conclusion.

    "Weapons technology," Egon replies, adjusting his glasses. "Extremely advanced weapons technology, along with the base theory they are built on."

    The Aurors look around the lab of Dr. Robotnik, but can't really see what he is working on aside from it looks to be upgrading some version of Metal Sonic. They do manage to notice a strange device in the laboratory though, under a lot of analysis gear. It is the machine in the picture.

    The dig site scrying vision grows hazy as it the scrying zone moves with great speed, deeper within the dig site, until it comes to a great cathedral-like Temple, half excavated from the rubble surrounding it.

    The three gems match up perfectly with the Kokiri Emerald, Goron Ruby, and Zora Sapphire.

    Maybe the fact that they're in their possession when they shouldn't be is causing the distortions. Like Imperial-tech-upgraded Wilybots might be. That, or they're brought in from another Zelda canon. Perhaps the temple of Time's premature discovery is also causing distortions for the same reason.

    Speaking of, can the Aurors identify the robot Masters with Wily? It'll help us tailor elemental responses appropriately.

    You are unable to tell at this time, but the Aurors panned the image around long enough for your techs to record it. They'll work on the analysis and keep you updated.

    Also 'fate set in motion' could mean that they're preparing to launch an attack that will decide this world's fate. If that's the case, we'll simply have a deadline to revert things back to normal.

    That reminds me, might this guy be related to that Spider totem? It was meta-aware, as I recall.

    Weren't the Farseers scrying one thing, and the Aurors another? Get the free group (farseers apparently, seeing as scrying on Spiderthing is apparently over) to scry. Mind you, considering Light is sending a message, I'm wondering if everyone's supposed to hear.

    Still, the question remains: what does the Spiderbeast want with the death of the heroes? Elimination of a threat? A source of despair to feed upon, once all hope is extinguished? His own amusement? we have to figure this out.

    Alright, so we need to grab the sub-space bomb to prevent Robotnik from using it, and we need to grab the jewels to prevent the Temple from being used.

    The corps won't be able to use the Temple without the jewels, and Wily's robots, while more powerful because of Imperium technology, can still be defeated via means at our disposal.

    So the bomb and the jewels should be our two highest priorities.

    Wily got advanced weapons tech,
    Robotnik got a subspace bomb,
    Metpharm got the gems of time,
    Foot clan got the temple of time,
    Light just started a Brawl,
    and at the center of this whole thing, a creature that is most likely a fusion of some villain and Nurgle has not only dragged in people for his brawl, but is collecting ...
    *image of all the people cocooned around the room*
    ... Trophies.

    For Time Travel? I have no idea if it's a good idea or not. But if, as one poster said, we're early in the 8 bit dystopia canon, then time travel may not be so useful. I wouldn't throw it out just yet, but I wouldn't go straight for it just yet, either.

    The RVF-25 is currently searching for Scrapyards, so we can understand how Robotnik and Wily's robots can be made/unmade.

    The Storm is currently scanning the HQs for weakness, and tracing Light's signal.

    The Farseers are working on contacting Light.
    The Aurors are busily trying to verify if the Temple at the digsite is the temple of time.

    Is it possible to get Tosh to transmit mental images of Pokey/Porky Minch and Tabuu to the Goddesses, and ask them if either of them resembles the humanoid man that came to the world? If so, do that.

    Right. We're gonna need to do 5 things, we're gonna need to do them simultaneously, and we're gonna need to be fast about it:

    #1: Infiltrate Light's resistance movement
    #2: Get Dat Fukken Bomb away from Robotnik
    #3: Get Dat Fukken Slate away from Wily
    #4: Get Dem Fukken Gems away from Metpharm
    #5: Get Dat Fukken Temple re-sealed.
    #5 should be the easiest, as all you need to do is teleport down a shitton of rocks or cement.

    While this happens, anyone with Sensors, Scrying, or Future seeing, should focus on finding heroes. AFTER they're done with their current task.

    Get ANON to scan his face, run it through some scans to see if we can get an ID.

    It may be a former member of TG gone "fixer" and is doing his damndest to shape this canon for whatever reason. Alternatively, it may be a canon Researcher Character who was recruited for whatever reason (i.e. rescued from canon death, had nothing more to contribute to his canon after a certain point, etc.) and for whatever reason did all of this.

    Shit.

We need this guy's file. I want to know his name, his training, hell I want his damn shoe size if it'll help us take him down!

    Of course the question becomes-what is he trying to accomplish? He's trying to create a new world, or maybe recreate an old one. We need to figure out his angle.

    This is the Winter Contigency. We're dealing with a Fixer, people. That means he's liable to think like we do and expect us to intervene. Act accordingly.

    Wisdom - Egon, for his intellect. Elaine for her level-headed personality.

    Courage - Cheryl, because she went through Silent Hill TWICE. Agrias, who fought against the Church she once believed in when faced with their corruption. Pretty much most of the Heroes, simply by their nature.

    The three goddesses have specific elements as well.

    However, if Light=Fire, then Cheryl is certainly Fire based.
    For Time, nothing beats a White mage that we multiclassed into Time mage. No idea if Healing is considered watery in FFT, though it's watery in many other canons.

    Wisdom could go to Egon, but I kind of feel like Elaine or Lyla might be better? I feel they would connect better with Nayru. Egon is more intelligence than wisdom.

    Power is pretty difficult. I'm really unsure because Power has always been Ganondorf's thing, and with Ganondorf being evil and all, well...it's messing up my thoughts on the idea.

    The point about Egon being more intellect than wisdom has a point. I mean, the man did strap an unlicensed nuclear accelerator with an atomic pile on his back in order to hunt down and capture ghosts.

    Wisdom: Egon. He had the good sense to admit that the eldritch was a very real thing, and didn't discount it just because it fell beyond his understanding of reality. By admitting his own ignorance and committing to learning the unknown, he gained mastery of it. This shows great wisdom.

    Courage: Cheryl (or Douglas). Both of them were regular people who got thrown into an impossibly horrible and twisted world. But despite their obvious mundane abilities, they faced Silent Hill head-on (TWICE!). In Cheryl's case, the second time she went she knew that her latent abilities that could very well consume the world had to be used to defeat Ebon Night, and decided to give it a go. Douglas stuck around even though he was just a detective. This shows great courage.

    Egon has Wisdom, Courage is tied between Cheryl and Agrias, and Power is tied between Pellaeon, Cheryl, and Agrias.

    OP breaks ties and assigns Agrias to Courage and Cheryl to Power in order to keep things moving.

    Yes. Let's.

    Well, now we just have to wait for OP to tell us things.
    Whether the RVF found a scrapyard.
    Where Light's broadcasting from.
    What weaknesses the Corp HQs have.
    Whether the unearthed temple is in fact the Temple of Time via scrying + ANON checking (it most likely is)

    That complete, we need plans:
    #1: Who do we sent to ensure that no hostiles fuck with the resistance movement?
    #2: Who steals the bomb from Robotnik?
    #3: Who steals the slate from Wily?
    #4: Who steals the gems from MetCorp?

    We have a plan for re-sealing the digsite - using the Mikasa to cause a rockslide, teleporting in concrete, and (if we have any geomancers) sealing the place with rocks. We'll investigate the temple ourselves later, but it's sufficient to seal it off for 2 hours while the rest of our teams deal with their issues.

    If anything, we divide the TIE-Ds and VF-25s again into groups of four. Four TIE-Ds and four VF-25s per mission should sound right.

    The Mikasa might need escorts. We can opt to send the Brasta + Hyaku Shiki as additional escort, unless someone else suggests some place where we can deploy them to keep their EXP up or something.

    They shoot anything that would pose a threat to the native heroes doing what they are fated to do.

    Have one of the Al'Kesh fly down while under cloak, and begin beaming up examples of the local robots and machines. Once the hold if full, come back so that Mouse and Data can go through the machinery and prepare our teams for fighting the robots and interfacing with the security systems.

    Observer 1 -> Relay terminal with pipes.
    If it encounters resistance, send VP-99.

    Observer 2 -> Wily Corp

    Observer 3 -> Robotnik HQ

    Observer 4 -> Metcorp HQ

    RVF-25 is to assist the Observers if possible.

    Scrapyard: Beam up any destroyed Badniks or Wilybots to the Engineering team to look at. We can learn how to build them, or how to destroy them.

    Other sensors keep trying to find any weaknesses in the 3 main areas.

    Good point.

    We'll need to send down, at most, 1 talkative hero to Light's HQ, since we aren't trying to do anything hostile, just say "Hi" and make sure the canon natives are all okay.

    That said, we DO have the Mikasa, along with the Demoman, and high explosives. Might as well use what we have.

    Now, since we need to preserve troops against losses, and our infiltrating forces are just that - infiltrating, not staging an all out frontal assault. Small teams of Heroes and Respawners are best, Veterans such as the Aurors and X-commies are also good, the White Mages are good at ressing, the Shadowrunner teams have done shit like this before, and the Respawning BLU team can't be lost.

    So there's your loadout. Heroes, Aurors, WHMs, Shadowrunners, BLU team.

    I vote we DON'T send any mechs or air units as a distraction at all, since an Alert would just make things harder for us.

    It's been said before, but the number one priority is to prevent anyone here from being able to go back in time. The moment that happens we get a causality loop and anything we try to do gets fucked up. In fact just being around a possible loop like this disturbs me. As for Dr. Grimm, well, we'll have to deal with him eventually, but the more crap we handle elsewhere first the better. There seems to be a lot of 'deal with this or the world dies' going on here, but the time travel one is the only one I can think of that's 'deal with this or WE die.'

    Annoyingly enough, the fact that we're here and we haven't been immediately destroyed or attacked probably means that we do prevent the time travel from happening. It's still the biggest threat.

    Because the canon disruptions might cause one of the heroes to die or be waylaid, we wish to prevent this.

    I'd like to know if our team has had any luck IDing the poor bastards that Grimm has snared. also if our aurors got a good enough read to be confident apparating.

    When it comes to stealing, may I suggest we approach this like a looting mission? I'd suggest taking aurors for both missions.

    For one thing, we might want to try apparaition into Robotnik's lab, ideally while he's otherwise engaged at a meeting or something. He's a businessman, we should be able to figure out a time when he won't be home. His security system probably won't factor magic into it (unless Grimm upgraded it or he's just that paranoid). Ditto Wily. Of course, we'd also have to get the information out of his mind. Perhaps if we could replace the subspace bomb with a nonfunctioning replica, perhaps with a Geminio spell. If we can, turn the copy into a portkey, then when Robotnik examines it to find out why it stopped working, we can port him to our ship for a quick mindwipe. Of course, this is contingent on our remaining undiscovered, at least not being found out as getting to his private lab. Heck, we could use metal sonic's body as a portkey, assuming that robotnik wouldn't be able to activate it before we stunned him

    Farseers can give us an estimate of how much time we have left to plan before it's Go time.

    Aurors could attempt to scry, and see if they can pinpoint Dr. Light and a path to him (as our observers are tied up at the moment).

    My preliminary plan, for now, is to get stealthy troops watching those targets and sensors scanning those targets, then set up infiltration teams of stealthy/hacking/disguised bullshitty people to move in and get us intel from the inside once we have a safe place to land them.

    Our Al'keshes, being cloaked, are the ONLY dropships we should be using now, as it is not time for an open fight yet.

    >Are we forgetting Mustadio in the roster?

    I'm assuming he's still in the Engineering bays.
    Speaking of which, start beaming up random scrapped Wily and Robotnik bots to see if we can get a headstart on finding their weaknesses.

    I'm against it.
    Not only does it have to enter orbit, enter atmo, drill down to the Dig Site through all of the aerial defenses of Wily's zone, it then also has to make good its escape.

    We can do the job with Demoman and high explosives.

    Stick to the plan.
    Passive info gather -> Active info gather -> Make a plan -> Infiltrate -> Make a plan -> Assassinate -> Grab booze for holtz -> Gtfo.

    We're in the "Active Info Gather" phase at the moment, which means stay stealthy, stay hidden, but get closer to danger and start scanning and talking.

    When it's time to infiltrate we can send it in, but not yet. I don't want forces to go on high alert until we've managed to get Observers, Drones, Scanners, Sensors, Stealth teams, and Bullshit teams planetside and snooping around.

    Having an Observer at the digsite may well tell us "hey, there's Anti-air turrets here", or "It looks like there are snipers here", or other such info that we'd need BEFORE we sent in the Mikasa.

    Let's put "Drop the Overlord on the city and start all out warfare" past plan A (recon), past plan B (infiltrate), past plan C (break and enter with elite teams), past plan D (time travel), all the way down to plan E.
    >> Anonymous 02/09/12(Thu)01:05 No.17866698
    When does the Inde expect to have the scans completed?

    Also, now that we've got Light's location generally figured out, can one of the Al'Kesh beam VP-99 or an Observer nearby to observe and warn of any assassins or strike teams moving against Light?
    >> Bootleg OP !!Cuw+lR6NxOH 02/09/12(Thu)01:09 No.17866730
    For instance: Being able to disguise our troops as Civilians or Wily/Met/Robotnik employees still requires preparation on our part, especially learning the Company protocols/building layouts, but is the obvious step to take after this one.

    Remember: Even if you can win in a stand up fight, being more prepared than the other guy WILL save you losses. Not only are we fighting against smart people who have built an army, we're fighting against one of our own. I fully expect rushing in with only 75% preparation to result in painful death and sodomy on par with Raccoon City.

    Honestly, I would also add some testing of how well our teleporters work here. Just sending something nondescript like a tracking device shaped like a loose screw would do. We could probe dangerous target areas and see how reactive they are to our teleporter energies. I still think that the best bet is magic'ing our way in and out. But we need to be able to get more troops down/materials out. Most of our tentative plans are hinging on teleporters working as intended. Last thing we want to do is set off a bunch of silent alarms and then have them back trace the signal to one of our ships.

    Quick question: Did the aurors get a strogn enough reading on their scrying to be confident enough to Apparate to where they were seeing? This may seem like a somewhat late thing to consider, but it was asked in >>17862491 and never answered.
    >> MetaQuest OP 02/09/12(Thu)01:14 No.17866773
    IIRC Trekporters have ridiculous range.

    It'll take a few hours, and even then it won't be complete. The bases are heavily shielded. The Storm's enhanced sensors might pierce it, but it's a light week out, too far for detailed scans.
    >> Bootleg OP !!Cuw+lR6NxOH 02/09/12(Thu)01:16 No.17866800
    What's the MINIMUM force we could send, that could allow Observers + Spike + VP-99 + Delta-greens to get to the surface, and get the Oncoming Storm about 3 Moon Orbits away from earth?
    Would 1 Oncoming Storm and 1 Indefatigable work?

    The Storm was supposed to be a few light-hours out, though, hiding behind Pluto. That was part of the plan in the last thread.
    Did that part not get done?

    Alright guys, let's move in closer for scans.
    >> MetaQuest OP 02/09/12(Thu)01:19 No.17866832
    Whoops! I missed that. That's still too far for detailed scans, though. You need to be in orbit for those.

    Yeah, that's small enough to fit on the Inde.
    >> Anonymous 02/09/12(Thu)01:20 No.17866844
    The range of 3 lunar orbits would put us between Hyrule and Zebes.

    Why don't we stick with the plan and move in behind Pluto?
    >> Anonymous 02/09/12(Thu)01:22 No.17866854
    Is hiding behind the Moon too far for the Storm's enhanced sensors to penetrate the shielding around the HQ's?

    Does the debris field extend past lunar orbit?
    >> Bootleg OP !!Cuw+lR6NxOH 02/09/12(Thu)01:25 No.17866871
    We want Scans but Not getting shot.
    How do?
    We can always derp behind Jupiter, get a shot of the things in orbit, relay their capabilities to Pellaeon, and ask Pellaeon what our likely "Closest safe approach" is.

    Is it behind the moon?
    Is it a few moon-orbits away?
    Is it further? Closer?
    >> Anonymous 02/09/12(Thu)01:28 No.17866901
    The RVF-25 and the Inde are already in orbit and in the debris field.
    We can already get a picture of what's there, and a scan of their capabilities.

    But you make a good point. The Inde alone can get Observers, Spike, VP-99, and Delta Greens planetside on mission: Find Light.

    However, this proposal has 1 person who thinks it will cause too much canon contamination to be worth the risk of doing do, and 1 person who thinks the potential gains outweigh the risks.

    Whose side do you fall on, noble Transpace Guardians?
    >> Anonymous 02/09/12(Thu)01:42 No.17867043

    I vote we go into find Light. We are going to have to go down at some point, and I think we are already on the clock. We will need to make sure we can get down undetected, but otherwise we need to get a recon team on the ground. Be it probes or people, there is information the needs getting. We can observe for now. If contact is deemed necessary, we can decide then. I want to know what the good Doctor has been up to. AND MAKE UP OUR COVER STORY AHEAD OF TIME. They will learn nothing of the Meta. We are just heroes who heard the call and want to help. We also just happen to have friends who know things.
    >> Anonymous 02/09/12(Thu)01:43 No.17867048
    What's at stake is whether we make contact, or simply protect Light and his Army from the shadows.
    Given our equipment, our weapons, the troops at our disposal, we can do our job without complicating it any further by interacting with the Canon characters.

    We only need a droid or observation team to watch Light and make sure he's not assassinated.
    >> Bootleg OP !!Cuw+lR6NxOH 02/09/12(Thu)01:47 No.17867081
    Right. Here's the cover story.
    Spike, and the DGs, are people who live locally and have worked for a small-scale security setup that really isn't into politics or megacorps.
    VP-99 is company property.
    They are curious about the message.
    >> Bootleg OP !!Cuw+lR6NxOH 02/09/12(Thu)01:48 No.17867102
    There's certainly the contamination aspect, but I believe it's worth risking the contamination of a random group of mercs/private security talking to Light to swap tactical info, in order to learn more about enemy combat capabilities.
    You disagree, and I can respect that, but I think that going in WITHOUT that information will lead to our asses being kicked at least 25% harder, and possibly up to 50% harder.
    >> Bootleg OP !!Cuw+lR6NxOH 02/09/12(Thu)01:52 No.17867139
    And to say "We can do this with what we have without canon help" is probably true, but emphasis on the "probably". If the enemy has 20 Quick Men then we're in for quite the world of pain.

    For instance. Suppose I wanted to make an impossible to beat world.
    I'd put all my valuable shit in an underground location surrounded by all my toughest dudes and strongest traps, I'd have reconnaisance units on every street corner, I'd have a fleet of hard-hitting stealthy glass cannons, whether as an airforce, a SWAT team, a fleet force, or all three.
    I'd have Reality distortion-finding telescopes aimed at the sky at all times, knowing that kilometer long spaceships from outside the canon make reality distortions. I'd find them, and while they're not suspecting, I'd fire c-fractional kinetic weaponry at them.
    Most importantly, I'd set up the populace so that any direct GO IN AND SHEWT ALL THE THINGS approach turns the people against the invaders, leaving the invaders to fight against what they try to save,
    and any GO IN AND BE STEALTHY approach I allow to work, and feed my enemies enough misinformation to let them walk into a trap.
    >> Bootleg OP !!Cuw+lR6NxOH 02/09/12(Thu)02:01 No.17867233
    If the enemy opts to hold back its forces to gather intel I will do likewise, and prepare a stealth flank or backstab attack on them for when they do move forward.

    Basically, play it like you know it, win it like you mean it.

    Faster-than-light sensor systems would detect any weapon launches aimed at the task force.
    The reason why we are doing our own intel-gathering via our own sensors and personnel is because false information could have been fed to Canon natives, which would get fed to us.
