    The OP was yelled at to produce some Agrias introductory writefaggotry. He mumbled some excuse and vanished into the ether.

    Tonight, he delivers.
    (And another thank you to the maker of this comic)

    The observation deck of the space station was relatively deserted this time of night. Aside from a scattered few wandering the perimeter, just a single group of six people stood peering into the void of space from the safety and comfort the deck offered.

    “I thought you said it was like an airship,” the swordswoman mused, looking out the observation deck window. Her gaze was fixed on the huge bulk of a somewhat ungraceful rectangular ship with an angular, arrowhead-like prow. Two large, flat boxy structures emerged from either side of the vessel almost like stubby, ungraceful wings. A small chasm of sorts separated the front of the ship from the rear, space for vessel-modules yet to be installed. She frowned. “It doesn't look like any ship I've ever seen.”

    “Ah, I meant how it could fly,” Lyla said, scratching the back of her head with a wince. She quickly turned her gaze to the ship as well. “It can move between stars like an airship is said to have moved through the sky.”

    The swordswoman put a gloved hand to her chin. Her other hand rested on her sword-pommel out of habit. “I see.” The swordswoman turned, then hand on her chin lifting to brush a honey-blond lock of hair from her face. “And an army that wields vessels such as this has need of warriors such as I?”

    “Er... well... yes,” Lyla winced, scrambling for words. “You... well, you're kind of a hero, you know?”

    The swordswoman's eyebrows lifted a little in quiet inquiry.

    “Well... it's true, Lady Agrias,” Elaine broke in. “Ivalice may not know of your courage and skill, but you'll find it a familiar tale to most of our crew. You've gone toe to toe with horrible demons, taken on terrible odds and won, and there are few people that have your skill with a blade even among our comrades.”

    A light hearted laugh burst from another of the group, this one a young man with blond hair pulled back into a short ponytail. Whereas two of the others were garbed in white robes and the other three wore the half-plate armor of Knights, this one merely had on a simple shirt and work-pants.

    “Your fame precedes you, Lady Agrias,” the engineer said with a grin. He smiled at Elaine. “Be careful, you might unseat even her admirable humility with praise like that.”

    The two female knights behind Agrias giggled softly. The former bodyguard of Ovelia shot them a deadly glare.

    “Alicia... Lavian...” she began. The two immediately clammed up, reflexively standing straight, as if called to attention. “Perhaps you'd be best served loading our things onto this... star-vessel. As for my fame, I but merely did my part. I was only one of a host of capable warriors under a very capable leader.”

    Alicia whispered something to Lavian as Agrias finished and the two knights snickered softly. The engineer spoke before Agrias could rebuke them.

    “Agrias, that's true, but that doesn't make you any less of a hero. It's just that we're ALL heroes now,” the young man chuckled. “You don't have to make a fuss about it.”

    “Mustadio, I'm not making a fuss. I just want to make sure credit is given where due. We were a team back then. I am no more deserving of praise than any other,” Agrias stated, turning her gaze to her two companion-knights. “Except for you two. You'd think a campaign like that would've cured you of your habit for gossip. Perhaps some extra training will work where that failed.”

    “Actually, before you do that, we'd like to show you around the ship,” Elaine offered, quietly. “Make sure you have your bearings.”

    “Yeah, you can meet everyone! We've got a swell buncha guys on this boat!” Lyla said with a grin. “Not to mention a swell bar! Ah, which is of course, to be visited only in moderation. Lady Agrias. Ma'am.”
    >> DAMN! I should've titled this "Delayed Blast Writefaggotry!" MetaQuest OP 03/02/12(Fri)21:36 No.18180901
    Agrias raised an eyebrow at the reaction, but let it pass, shooting another glare at Alicia and Lavian as they suppressed giggles at Agrias being called “Ma'am”.

    “Sounds like fun. I know I'd love to see what kind of machines make a vessel like that run,” Mustadio said, cracking his knuckles. “Maybe they'll even let me have a crack at examining them...”

    “Ah... Maybe...” Elaine murmured, turning towards the elevator. “But come along! There's a lot to see and not that much time! The ship is due to leave tomorrow.”

    “They don't waste time,” Agrias nodded. “Either that, or our new benefactors must truly be hard-pressed by the legion of evils you described.”

    Elaine offered the holy knight a solemn nod. “My lady, I've seen things that make the monsters me and Lyla used to fight look like chocobos. Don't ever doubt this. We NEED people like you fighting with us. There are enemies that cannot be fought with mere weapons, but only with iron will. There are enemies against which the soul determines more than the sword. Those things... they must never reach the innocent they crave.”

    Agrias' face tightens, as does the rest of her small band. “Then as long as we stand with you, they shall not.”

    Boarding the ship through one of the passenger umbilicals was a new experience for the Ivalicians, unaccustomed to being in space much less walking from a massive space-station to a massive ship on what amounted to a catwalk in a sealed-atmosphere tube. Mustadio gave a short whistle as they left the space station, the entirety of its gigantic form coming into view now that they were outside of it. Alicia commented it was almost like walking among the stars. Lyla just smiled and said they were just getting started.

    “This is the main loading bay,” Lyla said, turning around and spreading her arms wide at the cavernous space around the group. “It's empty now, but in a few hours the workers will start loading it up with all sorts of supplies and gear. I bet half this chamber is going to be stacked high with metal crates as big as you are!”

    “You might appreciate this, a lot of the cargo-loaders will be robots,” Elaine said to Mustadio with a smile. He grinned in response.

    “Like Worker 8?” he asked. Elaine nodded and Mustadio laughed. “I might want to come down and see that.”

    “What's that big area with all the burn marks and dents?” Alicia asked, pointing to a section of the bay.

    “That's where Marv...” Lyla began to say. She stopped and frowned. “You know what? I'll tell you later. It's a long story.”

    “This is the Engineering Bay,” Elaine said as the group entered the large chamber filled with all sorts of complex machines, workbenches, manufacturing tables, and crates of parts. Rack upon rack of tools lined the walls, and the air was filled with both the smell of oil and ozone as well as the sound of fusion torches hissing and molecular cutters whirring. Mustadio's jaw lowered open as his eyes seemed almost to shine with delight.

    “It's... it's beautiful...” the engineer murmured, slowly reaching out to touch a massive robotic assembly array. His hand was promptly slapped by an incorporeal hand as the luminous form of Belthasar loomed from behind the device.

    “Oh no you don't! No touchy the big machines until you've been trained!” the spirit scolded. “Bad enough Melchoir just assumed he could get the hang of it and... ugh, that was annoying to clean up.”

    “Ghost!” Mustadio sputtered, backing away as his hand went to his magic pistol. Lyla and Elaine hastily put hands on his arms.

    “Wait! He's a good ghost!” Lyla got out. “He's on our side!”

    “You have a haunted machine bay?” Agrias asked, tilting her head. “Curious.”

    “Good ghost... Pfah. I AM... well, WAS, a Guru, you know,” Belthasar said with a sigh. “Master of sciences and... Oh, fiddlesticks, you don't have a clue who I am. That's the bothersome thing about this boat. Fame is so unpredictable here. Pass by the bridge and get mobbed by people who claim I was 'their favorite sage', pass by the barracks and get quizzical looks from the soldiers.”
    >> MetaQuest OP 03/02/12(Fri)21:42 No.18180956
    “I see,” Agrias nods. “Interesting... So you were some sort of famed sage?”

    The ghost nodded. “I was. There are a lot of living legends on this boat. Well, legends in their homes. Not so much elsewhere it seems. Puts things in perspective I guess. Like the fable of the runner who was the fastest in his village, but was just another racer when he traveled to the big city.”

    “Hey, I know that story,” Mustadio said, perking up. “They used to use it to teach humility to the unruly kids. Or try to, anyway.”

    “Huh. I guess there are some stories that pop up no matter where you are. Interesting...” Belthasar murmured. “But yes, please be careful with the machines here until someone passes you a manual or shows you how they work. Some of these are complex enough that mere intuition and even genius won't be enough.”

    “Could you show me how they work?” Mustadio asked. Belthasar paused, tugging at his mustache.

    “I suppose I could. You an engineer then?” the echo asked. Mustadio puffed out his chest a little bit.

    “One of Clockwork City Goug's finest! Mustadio Bunanza at your service,” the young man said, executing a short bow.

    “And I Belthasar, Guru of Reason,” the ghost said, extending a surprisingly solid hand to Mustadio, who shook it. “Come back down to the bay when you're settled in. I'll give you the run down.”

    “Can't wait!” Mustadio said with a grin. The smile only grew as he looked over the vast array of machines waiting to be guided by skillful hands.

    “If you like, Mustadio, we can leave you here with Belthasar while we continue,” Agrias offered. Mustadio's face fell.

    “What? No, no! I'll come along with you!” Mustadio hastily said. Agrias frowned.

    “Are you sure? You looked so happy to be here...” Agrias began, a little confused. Mustadio shook his head.

    “No, better I accompany you and see everything else. Besides, we Ivalicians should stick together. Who knows the sort of people we'll run into?” Mustadio asked.

    “That's a bear,” Mustadio said, deadpan.

    “It's a bear-GOD,” Elaine corrected. “Okku can be a little prideful, so be careful of your words around him.”

    “Fine,” Mustadio said, looking at the huge, sleeping form of the bear-god Okku. The potent spirit had curled up in front of the roaring artificial fire present in the Oncoming Storm's refurbished lounge while Douglas sat nursing a drink at the bar proper. Mustadio continued. “It's a bear-god with rainbow fur sleeping in front of a fake fireplace in a bar in the stars.

    Alicia giggled, leaning over to the engineer. “What's the matter? Can't you just grin and BEAR it?”

    Agrias heaved a sigh. “Mustadio...”

    “I'm sorry, I'm sorry,” Mustadio said, holding up his hands. “I just thought I'd seen most of it all and imagined the rest. Obviously I was wrong. I'm just a little taken aback by that, that's all.”

    “A bear-god you say?” Agrias asked, turning to Elaine. The white mage nodded.

    “Okku is more a powerful spirit than god, actually, but where he hails from the differences blur between the two. Regardless, he is a potent ally, bonded with our resident detective, Mr. Douglas Cartland over there,” Elaine explains. “Despite his bestial exterior, he is quite intelligent.”

    “And don't offer to rub his belly,” Lyla interjects. “He won't like it. And don't try to pet him either.”

    “That was...” Elaine begins to say, a pained look on her face. Lyla looks down.

    “Look, I said I was sorry, OK?” Lyla murmurs. She looks up. “Anyway, the bar is stocked with all sorts of drinks from all over the place. It even has a small selection of snacks and dishes if you get sick of the cafeteria stuff. Good place to kick back and relax for a bit if you need to unwind.” Lyla suddenly looks nervous. “Ah, uh, assuming you like drinking and can't, you know, train instead. Which is what I usually do. Train.”

    “I'm not some sort of uptight school-marm,” Agrias protests. “I have the occasional glass of wine. You don't need to pretend that you do nothing but work and train all day.”

    “Oh thank God!” Lyla bursts out. “I don't know how long I could've kept that up.”

    “Well... you really didn't,” Elaine quietly says.

    “Yeah, you kinda suck at the whole deception thing,” Mustadio nods.

    “That's... well... shut up,” Lyla mumbles.

    “Why don't we show you the cafeteria next?” Elaine suggests.
    >> MetaQuest OP 03/02/12(Fri)21:54 No.18181093
    The cafeteria of the ship was, like most of the main rooms of the Storm, very very large. Numerous long-tables with built in benches dominated the room, with a lone counter separating the eating area from the kitchen. The clank of pots and pans, whirring of appliances, and smell of cooking food all wafted from therein, while the eating area held a scattering of crew-members talking softly while taking a late dinner.

    “Usually it's more crowded than this, but a lot of people are eating at the station tonight. It has more variety, Elaine explains, pointing to the kitchen. “But we do OK. You'll find we have far better than trail rations here, Lady Oaks! We have a number of complex machines that...”

    “Machines?” Mustadio asked, perking up.

    “Er, yes. Machines that can create a wide variety of foods from base materials very very fast! But for when those machines can't be used or if you want something hand-made, we have a small staff to take care of the rest,” Elaine finishes. She smiles. “They can even make Ivalician delicacies and dishes if you feel a little homesick.”

    “And you have enough food for so many?” Agrias wondered aloud. “It never needs to be rationed?”

    “Nope!” Lyla stated, smiling. “This hunka metal has enough grub on board to feed twice its crew for a year before restocking! Don't ask me how it works though. More weirdo machines, I guess.”

    “I like this place more and more,” Mustadio chuckles.

    Lavian tilts her head and points. “Is that a machine too? Because I have trouble believing a man could eat that huge pile of food in front of him.”

    “No...” Lyla says, her eyebrows slightly twitching. “That's just Spike.”

    “Spike?” Alicia asked, turning to Lyla. The white mage shook her head.

    “Spike Spiegal. He's a bounty hunter that works for us. He's also a jerk, a glutton, a buffoon, and infuriating to be around!” Lyla almost shouted. Elaine laid a hand on her friend's shoulder.

    “I thought your singing was fine...” she soothed.

    “It's not about that!” Lyla swore. “...OK it is about that!”

    “Er, ladies?” Mustadio raised a hand, slowly. “The tour?”

    “Yes, the tour!” Elaine quickly said, grabbing Lyla by the hand. “Come along, now!”

    “THOSE are ships too?” Mustadio got out. “But they're so... small!”

    “They're called fighter-craft,” Elaine said. “Specifically, those are called 'Messiahs'. They are ships, but they're only good for short-range fighting. Think of them like rowboats with a single cannon on each to the Storm's massive galleon. They can be hard to hit, and provide welcome additional fighting power.”

    “Messiah...” Agrias murmured. “I like the name.”

    “This place is just full of strange and powerful machines. It seems everywhere we go there's something for Mustadio to drool over,” Alicia says. Lavian grins and leans in close.

    “Of course that's true anytime Mustadio follows Agrias around,” the knight whispered. The two giggled mischievously as Agrias' head turned, slightly.

    “What was that?” the holy knight inquired.

    “Oh! I said that may be true, but Mustadio never lets it distract him if there's work to be done,”Lavian stated.

    “Ah. Yes, diligence is a trait he possesses in abundance. You could learn something,” Agrias nods. The two knight-companions nodded back with straight faces that strained not to collapse into a fit of giggles once their superior's back was turned.

    Mustadio for his part, was completely ignorant of this as he stood in awe of the massive golden form of the Hyaku-Shiki.

    “Wha... what's this? Don't tell me!” Mustadio said, racing around the mobile suit to take it all in. “Obviously a gun there, there's a... that's got to be a hatch there, so that must be a gangplank or the like... It's... Oh my god, is this a sort of pilot-able robot?”

    “You have a good eye,” a strong voice stated as a man in a light red spacesuit and helmet approached the group. The figure reached up to take off the helmet, revealing a handsome face framed with short blond hair. “You must be part of the group of new recruits. My name is Quattro. Lt. Quattro Bajeena. You would be?”

    “Mustadio Bunanza, engineer of Goug city,” Mustadio stated, shaking the pilot's hand firmly.

    “Agrias Oaks, holy knight of Ivalice,” Agrias said, also shaking the hand. “These are my apprentices, Alicia and Lavian.”

    “A pleasure, ladies,” 'Quattro' said, smiling. “I fence in my spare time, you know. I'd love for a chance to spar with people that specialize in the art, if at some point you find yourselves free during your tour here...”

    “Agrias will probably be pretty busy,” Mustadio said, looking from the mecha pilot to the swordswoman and barely concealing a frown. “She's still training Alicia and Lavian after all...”

    “Nonsense, Mustadio,” Agrias says, shaking her head. “I can easily incorporate a few matches with Mr. Bajeena into Alicia and Lavian's training, after all. If he doesn't mind.”

    “Not at all, I'd relish the chance,” Quattro said, bowing from the hip. “We'll have to set that up later. For now though, I have to be off. Cheryl wanted some more information about newtypes.”

    “Cheryl?” Agrias asked.

    “Our resident wondergirl,” Lyla chuckled. “You'll meet her at some point.”

    “We look forward to sparring with you, Lieutenant,” Alicia said. A predatory grin tugged at her face. “...but don't think you'll have it easy with mere 'apprentices.”

    “My dears, I would hope not,” Quattro said, winking at the young knight before heading out.

    Elaine frowned at the lieutenant's passing.

    “You might... want to be a bit careful around Lt. Bajeena there,” Elaine carefully says. “He... can be a bit of a charmer.”

    “You don't need to warn me,” Agrias states, looking at the pilot's retreating form with stoicism. “If you look hard enough, you can tell... That one wears more than one mask. He might bear watching.” The holy knight looked to her subordinates. “Keep that in mind.”

    Alicia and Lavian nodded, the playful attitude gone.

    “Anyway...” Lyla spoke up, pointing. “There are more vehicles here than the Hyaku. This is also where we keep the tanks and missile-trucks, store the Marauder suits and-”

    “What on earth are those?” Alicia asked, pointing to a trio of tall, spindly humanoids with carapaces and antennae. The creatures were lounging around a series of deactivated exosuits, chittering amongst themselves, laughing, and gulping down cans of something fishy-smelling and gooey. Elaine waved. The creatures waved back.

    “I honestly don't know the actual name for their species, but everyone calls them 'prawns',” Elaine stated. “They're nice enough. They pilot those strange suits in battle, very powerful things! They love cat-food for some reason, that and fish. Tend to keep to themselves, though.”

    “Huh. Here I thought having monsters in Ramza's army was a bit odd,” Mustadio commented.

    “We've also got these people called 'Eldar',” Lyla said. “They look like humans, but pointy ears and they live for centuries. Uh, other than that, I think everyone's a human on board. Well, if you consider the space marines human.”

    “Space marine?” Lavian asked. Lyla just grinned in response.

    “You're huge!!!” Alicia gasped as she stared at the armored bulk of Darius Fortes as the Knights Inductor performed a basic combat maneuver exercise regime within the confines of the Oncoming Storm's training chambers. Darius smiled.

    “The augmentations we space marines received dramatically increase our size and musculature so that we may be better soldiers of the Emperor,” Darius stated. “We also receive numerous implants, and the most severe training to ensure that our skill in war is unsurpassed. To fight the innumerable foes of Mankind, we must be no less than juggernauts on the battlefield, warriors unparalleled.”

    “You look like you could crush someone's head with your hands...” Lavian murmurs, walking around the Knight. Her gaze turned to the space marines in training. “...but the way you move, it's like you have hardly any bulk at all!”

    “Huge hands? Makes sense...” Mustadio pointed to a rack of currently unused wargear. “You'd need them to hold and fire guns as big as that. Or wield those blades.”

    “That sword seems a little different than the rest of your gear,” Agrias noted, pointing to Ringil. Darius nodded.

    “You noticed. This is a legendary blade of the elves, a sword named Ringil,” Darius said, drawing the weapon and holding it aloft in front of him. The shimmering metal of the blade seemed almost to glow with an inner azure light as the space marine presented it. “I won the honor of wielding it for the duration of our mission during a trial within an elf-lord's tomb.”

    “A tomb? Don't tell me you guys robbed it...” Alicia said, wincing. Darius shook his head.

    “No, of course not! We are not looters. We requested a boon of the deceased and it was granted to us after a trial of valor. We will return what was lent to us when our mission is complete.”

    “Honorable of you,” Agrias nodded. “As befits a knight.”

    “As a representative of humanity, I can do naught else,” Darius states, with pride.

    “I might want to test your reputation as warriors 'unparalleled' with a friendly spar later, Captain Fortes,” Agrias stated, with a slight smile. The space marine raised an eyebrow.

    “Very well, Lady Oaks... but I warn you, we space marines are not your everyday combatants. I do not mean to be prideful when I say you might get injured, even in a friendly spar,” Darius states. “Members of the Clans aboard this vessel learned that the hard way.”

    “We could give you the same warning,” Alicia says, grinning.

    “We've seen her in action!” Lavian laughs. “You don't know what you're getting into!”

    Agrias holds up a hand towards her subordinates and they fall silent. “If I face defeat, I will learn something from it. A battered body is a small price to pay for a lesson that might save my life or someone else's later.”

    “A sentiment worthy of a space marine. Very well. We will see to it when you are settled in,” Darius nods, a smile tugging at his face. “But I must attend to my brother's training for now. Farewell, lady knight.”

    “Farewell, noble knight,” Agrias states.

    “Shall we see the rest of the training areas?” Elaine asked. “You haven't met everyone yet. And I know that- huh? Lyla, what are you doing?”

    “Counting my money. If Agrias and Darius are going to spar, someone's going to start a betting pool. Might as well be me.”

    Alicia turned to Elaine. “Are you SURE she's a White Mage?”

    Elaine just shrugged in reply, a helpless expression on her face.

    1. Set up the identified building as a replica of the Wily Corp HQ using the floor plans we have.
    2. Advanced scans of the Dig Site to identify adjoining tunnels we can snipe from and to determine what buildings are there.
    3. Get doses of the virus prepared for deployment.
    4. Contact Light, ask him what his operative was able to get from MetPharm.
    5. Get Data and our X-COM Engineers working on an Incursion upgrade for VP-99, 98, and HK-50.
    6. Have Mouse begin snooping around the Wily Corp network.

    We also need to set up the MetPharm strike with X-COM NOVA, so we need to start dropping our X-COM VALKYRIE messages.

    The only place that it might be useful to sent Gondegal now would be the Dig Site. He is still a medieval character, in a high-tech world. He wouldn't be able to identify the interdiction generator or the power generators at the Corp HQ's.

    a. Get Mustadio a TR-116 with Exographic Targeting Scanner and Micro-Transporter Module. He's an Engineer whose weapon focus was guns; see if he can still pull off some of his skills with this weapon.
    b. the Gavs can work with Data to do the Incursion upgrades, which will free up the X-COM Engineers for renovating the mock-up building.
    c. Get the Aurors, Farseers, and Psions to scry on the MetPharm, Wily, and Robodyne high security areas, see what kinds of defenses are in place and have the shadowrunners watch so that they can see the kinds of defenses they'll be up against.
    d. Test Explosive Runes to see if a robot reading them is enough to trigger them. Use the captured Sniper JOE and Robodyne caterpillar. If so, have the Abjurers begin preparing stickers of Explosive Runes.

    Prepare remote network uplinks to allow Mouse and Data to hack the Corps' computer networks once the strikes begin.
    Prepare contingencies: 1. polymorphic virus, 2. EMP grenades, 3. Thermite charges.

    We also may wait until Light and his Resistance are about to launch their own attacks on the Corps, and use their attack as a cover for ours.

    Your scanners fail to penetrate down to the dig site. In addition to the expected interference from depth, some sort of anomaly prevents the sensors from an accurate read.

    Your scrying team yields fruit and you manage to learn the observable defenses of the corporate HQs. Mainly there are automated turrets hidden in walls, offensive laser grids, plenty of guards or robots, and lock after lock, usually voice or eye-imprinted.

    The gist is that when Earth fell, some members of X-COM made a blind Jump. They arrived at Proxima VIII, and allied with the beings there because of their mutual enemy, the Ethereal Empire and their Sectoid and Muton client races.

    When the Space Pirates came and laid waste to Proxima VIII and her colonies, X-COM VALKYRIE came with their Advance Task Force to find the Space Pirates and MetPharm, and take their revenge.

    X-COM VALKYRIE is requesting to coordinate an attack on MetPharm Branch HQ in the City with any forces X-COM NOVA can spare.

    Heat man is weak to water-based weaponry, and can also be damaged by shooting him with bullets. Do not attack him with fire, as it heals him.

    Air man can be hurt by bullets, but is critically weak to having his fan system jammed or clogged. Throwing some fine steel wires or fine nylon strands (i.e. fishing wire) into him should do the trick.

    Metal Man is SO incredibly weak to his own goddamn blades that it's not funny, but he can also be hurt by shooting him with bullets if need be.

    Q: What is a birdlime launcher?

    A: Originally the term was used as a glue to trap birds when they land on branches. This one instead refers to a device used in Mobile Suit Zeta Gundam. When a beam weapon pierces the hull of a space colony, that hole will be a source of decompression. In one episode, the Hyaku Shiki patched up a hole in a colony during a battle. The birdlime launcher was stored inside the _hand_ of the mobile suit, and a projectile of goo was fired, sealing the hole.

    .......take it as you will with regards to how strong that glue is for patching holes in space colonies.

    I have a frankenstein-patchwork idea to upgrade the Prawn suits and Space Marine armor.

    You see the Ex-gears on the VF-25 cockpits? Take the flight systems on the Ex-gears... and adapt them to the exo-suits and power armors.

    Since the Prawn suits are the closest we have to Terminator suits (but squishier), we might as well armor them up. I'm thinking we should implement the energy conversion armor from the VF-25's and adapt them to the Prawn suits.

    For any problems regarding power supply, let's adapt the design of the battery packs from the VF-25 Armor Packs and mount them.

    From there we can start deciding what kind of heavy weapons from the Baneblades, Von Luckners, and Brasta that we can adapt to the Prawn suits as back-mounted, support fire/sniping weapons.

    Whatcha think?

    Unnecessarily clunky and, quite frankly, not that good compared to what else we have.

    We have deflector shields from the Creation Engine Database, that would be better to use for protecting the Space Marines and the Prawn Suits. An alternative would be Federation personal force fields, and not the ones that Starfleet uses in 2409 but actually adapting their ship shield technology.
    Flight systems are better taken from the X-COM Flying Armor, since we need the synthetic Elerium research done anyway.
    The E-115 would also provide us with an extremely dense and powerful power source, enough to power the defense systems.
    Of which should include replicators and self-replicating ablative armor.

    As for better weapons, being able to replicate the Dark Matter Canon mass rifles would be better than anything else, as it would let us fire mini-blackholes. Only thing better would be Singularity Lasers, and those are likely more difficult to make.

    Bad parts about this:
    ~ Shadow Mirror Katina Tarask. She's also completely batshit insane at times, making the worst possible decisions at the time. Her brain's been poked, stabbed, rewired, drugged, re-drugged, wiped, scrubbed, and put together with some connections missing. When she goes off on the deep end, she's a raging berserker in a frilly dress with FAR too many pockets for anyone's health.
    ~ All the crazy shit in the Patchwork. Not to mention the *existence* of the Patchwork in and of itself. This is perhaps one of the Guard/Institute's worst nightmares. Basically a hundred shattered /m/-based worlds fused back into a single "coherent" world by nothing short of an act of Super Robot Wars-grade Deus Ex Machina (LITERALLY.).
    ~ This opens up the possibility of getting involved in a Giant Robot-grade version of the Grail Wars. Shinji with Asuka turning into Unit 01 for Berserker, Duo Maxwell from Gundam Wing with Hilde turning into Deathscythe for Assassin.. I think Dann of Tuesday is either Saber or Archer. I forget at the moment. Oh, and there's an Exalted character with one of that setting's godesses turning into like.. a nerfed version of Demonbane or something. This may be Archer, again I can't immediately recall.
    ~ The *second* this gets out, Black Ops is gonna be all over our sector. These are the groups of people that can *create* STOBs. Remember those? The things that started this clusterfuck? Yeah. SM!Katina has some of the people that can MAKE THEM.

    There is plenty of extremely fucked-up shit on the internet. Things that have made even 4chan blush.

    E.g. you could combine Guro with /vp/ with that "Girl turns into a dragon's heart" thing with Unbirthing, to get:
    A person who keeps a large amount of pet female cats, that he dresses up as various pokemon. He/she abducts people, shrinks said people down to a miniature size, and forcibly inserts them into his pet cats' uteri. There, he uses magic to transform them into statues of catboys/catgirls with adorable faces, souls of his victims trapped inside them and unable to scream.
    He then covers said statues in cat food and watches his cats tear them apart.

    This person obviously has to be a cat-furry, and He/she will refer to him/herself as the Catmaster/Catmistress, speaking only in various ear-grating forms of "NYA".

    This has to be SOMEONE's fetish.
    This is one of the many reasons why the Hedonists aren't the goldfish poop gang of the setting, but are instead scary motherfuckers, because they're an entire faction that get joy from things just as fucked up as this.

    And as a protip to everyone:

    Well, I will grant that it was kinda done better than most fanfic hand waving shit goes... Fit more with the fact that Dark Brain basically killed each of those worlds and trapped their shattered corpses in time stasis. What they ended up doing to 'make' it was take those world fragments and with a liberal and 4th Wall-licking sense of PLOT AHOY forged them into the Patchwork; for a specific reason.

    You see, in that 'canon' Dark Brain cannot exist in a world or worlds where it's already killed everything; that includes that incarnation of itself. By weaving them together, SM!Katina and co. basically made an anti-Dark Brain fortress out of an entire bin of world shards. As I recall, the threads trailed off right about when they started getting the last few areas stabilized so the whole thing wouldn't tear itself apart. There's still strife and such, but people are adjusting surprisingly well once they get over the whole "We were dead, but we're alive again! Yay!" bit.

    It's not exactly the most stable of worlds; but given time to develop might actually turn into a viable place; especially for Giant Robots/Mecha pilot recruitment. Depending on how MetaQuest OP goes with it, we may actually be able to gain some horrifically powerful support. But we're gonna have to tread VERY lightly. They've got the kind of firepower in that world to actually pose a serious threat to our sector fleet.

    I mean, shit. H.R. Giger and H.P. Lovecraft ain't got nothing on Goldshire. The sanity loss isn't from watching or seeing wacky bullshit - any man can see the horrors of war. The sanity loss comes from knowing that people ENJOY these things. In fact, a very large amount of people ENJOY these things, and that, compared to the huge amount of people who enjoy {x}, you are, relatively speaking, Alone.
    The truth isn't that the universe does not care for you. The truth is that the universe wishes to dress you up in girls' clothes and sodomise you, then giggle at your distress, all the while screaming "IT'S STRAIGHT AND NOT GAY LOL 'CUZ HE'S WEARING A DRESS XD"
    A trip to /v/ or /d/ will inform you that there are far, far too many so-called "straight" males with a massive lust for dicks. Even outside of there, in pornography for the so-called "normal" people, nobody gives two shits about whether women are happy; people only wish to see dicks being used on someone.

    I feel incredibly queasy just thinking about the sheer NUMBER of adult males in the world who are into that type of thing. If that stuff counts as Heterosexual then I don't know what the word MEANS anymore.

    Yeah. But hey, this is actually a better explanation for a world with so many crossovers that doesn't immediately burst into flames than the actual SRW games give.

    Most of the time it's "Portal opens, bad guys appear, SHENANIGANS AND MISSIONS". At least they tried to explain it this go around.

    We can give it a chance, but dear LORD are we keeping our weapons and shields charged and raised. I'm simply praying that the Patchwork isn't the moving distortion. I have a pretty sneaky and simple plan for dealing with the Stiletto if that's what it is, so I'm less than worried.

    Depending on how it goes; like I said, we could gain some SERIOUS awesomeness if we play it right. If it's JUST SM!Katina, then I'm not worried unless she's piloting the Compatible Kaiser or something. That whole world? Ehhhhhh.. We'll have to see. But first; 8-bit Dystopia!

    Farstriders was an RPserver. We just didn't have the issues our fellow RP servers had due to "special" circumstances.
    The first month of the server's existence, free transfers were allowed to the server giving us a large number of actual PVPers and PVEers. They kept the server from being horrible. The tranfer from Moonguard was almost entirely ERPers. My god, I wish we could have nuked Goldshire. We got hit expecially hard because that was the same time Blizzard stationed GMs in Goldshire on Moonguard to ban ERPers. They decided to take the free transfer to keep doing their horrible fetishes.

    Bumping with a query: I read in one of the earlier threads (Bootleg or main, can't recall which) that PWP fics were prime recruitment fodder for the guard, being pocket universes that collapse quickly.

    Would it thus be possible to recruit characters from one of these alternate dimensions, regardless of canon status?

    Also, a possible update for hero recruitment: Giles from the buffyverse may be getting resurrected in the Angel and Faith series in the near future. Too bad for the guys who want to recruit him. I suppose you could try and nab him from the alternate timeline seen in 'The Wish', but he's somewhat superfluous now.
    >> Codeki 03/03/12(Sat)10:05 No.18186921
    He's pretty much worthless now that we have the sages. Anything he could do, they can do better.

    Also, people have been talking about recruiting from some of those of those alternate universes, but we have a minor problem.

    Requisitions is going to pretty much shut down. Depending on how many more we can get, we're best off spending all we have on a Looter team, and upgrades for our ship. If anything, we still need a Meta-communications suite (if we can't build our own out of the scanned mini-meta ship) and probably better scanners. Excluding that, most everything else will probably end up going to our /tg/bein plans.
    >> Anonymous 03/03/12(Sat)10:12 No.18186961
    right. But we shouldn't *just* prioritise the giant robots for recruitment (granted, with recent developments, we should accelerate our plans for /tg/bein).

    What are our non-robot related heroes, other than the Looters and Giles? Other than Skorzeny, we can get hundreds of superior commando-types from the various canons. Not to mention, Nazis and the meta don't mix.

    You drop VP-98 somewhere in the slums and he begins transmitting the codes and passphrases along with an encrypted prerecorded message on the frequencies you detected. After about an hour, it receives an encoded burst transmission that translates to the following.

The prepared spells can be of any level or combination of levels as long as the total spell levels add up to four or more (0-level spells don’t count). For example, an abjurer using this variant could lose two 2nd-level spells or one 1st-level spell and one 3rd-level spell to cast dispel magic.
    At 11th level, an abjurer can “lose” seven or more levels of prepared spells to spontaneously cast greater dispel magic.
    An abjurer using this variant can use it in conjunction with a readied action to use dispel magic or greater dispel magic as a counterspell.
    An abjurer using this variant does not gain additional spells per day for being a specialist wizard.

    Could be useful in worlds with lots of magic.

    We're going to want the Abjurers to load up on Knock and Protection from Energy and Protection from Arrows spells. That should protect them from Wily and Robotnik energy weapons, and bullets.

    It seems a little redundant with the Techno-Wizards on-staff. Brew Potion might be better, since we need some alchemists.

    Protection from Evil and Explosive Runes are spells that every abjurer has.

    Yes, they all have familiars. The Psions also have their psicrystals, too.

    Who's working on what? I might have enough time to roll up character sheets if some troops need more statting up.
    >> Anonymous 03/04/12(Sun)11:16 No.18201883
    That would be helpful, since I'm not the best at character creation.
    Like I think it would be good if each Abjurer is capable of standing alone as a support mage, but when together, there should be as little redundancy as possible? Like they should all be good at different things to a certain extent?
    I don't know, is that clear at all?
    >> Anonymous 03/04/12(Sun)11:43 No.18202060
    Yeah, it makes sense.
    I think someone is already working on the Abjurers.

    As said before, we do have the Techno-Wizards, so some of the crafting feats, like Craft Wondrous Item, Craft Magical Arms/Armor, Craft Ring are probably not necessary. But the Potions, I don't think we have any other alchemists aboard right now, and having Potions of Haste and Protection from Energy for frontline troops would give us an edge in any conflict.

    Um, hi, writer of Super Robot Wars Quest, from over on /m/, here.

    You guys were talking about crossing over with us or something? I'll admit, I haven't been following your thread, so I'm not sure how you do things here. Could someone explain how thats supposed to work?

    Normally I'd be all gung ho for inter-quest cameos, I already had /m/quest appear. But I'm currently in the middle of a major climax of this part of the Quest, so I'm wondering how this is supposed to go down.

    Can anyone enlighten me? General hints about this quest would be appreciated.

    As someone who's tried and sometimes failed to follow the thread thanks to /m/-ness that I am grossly unfamiliar with, I'm all for helping out another Quest. I've heard you might be running 2 quests, so we'll need to know: 1) Which quest, 2) Major characters, 3) Nature of this climactic battle, 4) How much trolling you think your quest could tolerate before it fell apart, on a scale of 1-10. This last one is important, trust me, helps determine how badly the Distributors will be trying to loot the setting for robots and phat tech.

    Those should be the same quest, SRW Q2 is just a continuation of Q set after they jumped into that combined universe mentioned before. The current thread is >>>/m/7435303 , any other threads currently one are trolls.

    1) SRW Q2 FINAL is the current title, but its the same quest as SRWQ from 2 years ago.
    2) the cast list is pretty fucking huge at this point, mainly because I don't kill a lot of side characters, but the main ones are Shadow Mirror Katina Tarask, Shadow Mirror Arado Balanga (who is now Casshan), Duminass 7, Shadow Mirror Seolla Schweizer, Shadow Mirror Did-not-go-to-OGVerse Axel Almer, and we just had Alternate Universe Shadow Mirror Katina Tarask show up as a final villain.
    Don't judge me.
    3) The main team of heroes recruited from the Patchwork teamed up with some Getter Robos to fight a 40k Hive City taken over by Sharon Apple from Macross Plus (hypnotising AI), and there was a big fight with the citys PDF and Titans, then Katina tricked one of Sharons minions into selfdestruction by over-evolving. Then an alternate Katina Tarask showed up to fight, and the entire cast gathered for round 2 with her. There more to it than that obviously, but details might be too much right now.
    4) I'm not sure I can answer that since we're not in the usual format. I've been trying to finish off a kudzu of unfinished plot threads in time to wrap up this '2' part of the quest and move on to a planned '3' part. Ordinarily I'd be more open to shenanigans, especially wierd stuff like this, but you've caught me at the wrong time.
    Then again, if all you want is to steal some robots, and not involve my characters at all, the Patchworks a big place. Or you could visit some kind of alternate alternate....thing. I dunno.
    >> Fireman Prime 03/04/12(Sun)15:59 No.18203954
    1) Understood
    >2a) that was what I was afraid of
    2b) As long as we come up with snappy nicknames, we'll manage.
    3) 40K+SRW = Holy Lynchpin, Batman! Sounds like a bonus 'black world' that'll be another primmary objective from my side of the game.
    4) A'ight, so it's a Lynchpin (primary objective world), but instead of sheer difficulty of enemy(s), we have to deal with way too many people at once (Distributors, possible Firemen trying to bring it all down, potential SUE activations, whatever other MetaFactions decide to take advantage of the chaos that is the Transpace Guard right now, etc.)

    However bad for us you think this could get, know that MetaOP will make it worse. It'll be fun, trust me.

    Shippers are just heist-kiddies, to be honest. Hedonists range from perverts-with-plasma-guns to Plasmid-shooting corporate goons to out-and-out Slaaneshi cock-mongers with MetaBarges to boot. If they show up and start trying to loot characters for slaving purposes, we're going to have a definite fight on our hands that Reality weapons can't help with.
