    Twitter for next thread time: HereticalLoveQ

    Its been kind of a rough set of days, but there have been a few high points. Meeting one of the greatest intellects the world has ever known, who turns out to be an immortal wizard.

    You can't honestly feel too surprised at this point. Maybe if he had been a dolphin all along, but as is, not too shocking.

    Not that any of this is likely going to matter, because the immortal witch "Ruin" is likely to kill you.

    You wait with bated breath as her eyes open, focusing, calculating.

    "Morning." You finally offer.

    "Already?" She groans, before floating off the ground, her arm leaving your chest.

    "...That's it?"

    "Hmm? Well what did you expect, mortal?" She asks, one eye open as she stretches both arms over her head.

    You don't offer any hints, it could have gone much, much worse...

    As you pull yourself off of the ground with a nearby table, you groan and realize that this is probably the last place on earth that you are going to find coffee or cigarettes. Sure there's Socrates and his friendly mead-making armored construct friend, but after last night...

    You don't feel much like any more mead.

    Instead, you gaze bleary-eyed around the large building. A place quite unlike any other, when you factor in the fact that it is deep under the sea floor.

    Not to mention all of the lost historical information and accounts held within its walls...

    "Was wondering when you would get up!" Socrates calls out.

    ...Or the philosophical wizard who's been camped out here for the last thousand or so years.

    "Can Bob make coffee and or cigarettes?" You ask the toga-clad thinker.

    "Mead?" He asks after a few moments, extending a cup.

    "Dude..." You shake your head.

    You look around and notice Kiara has apparently floated off somewhere, out of eyesight. You spot "Bob", the Librarian here, busily cleaning shelves. He's quite an odd fellow, Bob. What with the fact that he isn't a whole lot more than floating bronze armor filled with some kind of energy that must keep the whole thing together.

    Pulling out your MP3 player and setting it aside with headphones, you crank the volume to "Wild Thing" as you yawn. Kiara may be out of eyesight, but down here, she can surely hear it.

    Socrates, meanwhile, has settled himself down on the table nearest you. He's halfway through a cup of mead and again as far into a particularly large scroll, its edges frayed and ragged.

    Though you figure its about time to get out of here, as you aren't exactly one to just hang in a library unless you can avoid it...

    You are also trying to think of anything you might need to do before heading out.

    Ask Bob about any books that might give you a clue about Phoenix's curse.

    You take a few minutes to sit down, get your bearings back together after a rough night. You still don't feel exactly wonderful.

    After giving your Sig a quick field strip, you were thankful that you put it in a plastic bag before making the dive. Otherwise it might be rusted to shit from the salt water. Instead, its in good working order. Though it might need a bit of oil.

    "Quite a contraption there." Socrates looks up from his scroll.

    "Bit different from a sword, yeah."

    "From what I can see in your memory, a lot different." He raises an eyebrow.

    "What are you reading there?" You ask, changing the subject to hopefully something more cheerful.

    "A detailed account of the history of naval warfare."

    "So light reading, then." You put the Sig back into its kydex holster and back into the water tight bag.

    Bob silently glides over toward your table, and you give him a small wave which he awkwardly returns.

    "Hey Bob, been meaning to ask you... Thought about this last night, but do you have any books on curses? I'm looking specifically for anything that might have to do with someone being cursed with immortality."

    The construct pauses, and with no face, you can't really tell why.

    "Certainly there are a few, would you like me to show you?"


    You get up from the table, leaving Socrates to his reading, and fall in line after Bob.

    Through rows upon rows of scrolls you walk, following along behind the bronze armor. You don't really marvel too much this morning, not like last night. It could be that you've lost a bit of the "wow" factor, or maybe it could just be the hangover starting to creep up on you.

    Bob finally stops beside a smaller wooden shelf, and his glowing white hands reach out and select two scrolls, gently easing them from the stack.

    You meanwhile, take a seat at another table and with that there were something more comfortable to sit on than the hard marble.

    "Just these two, they should have what you are looking for."

    He sets the scrolls in front of you, and you snag another one of the circular glasses like you used last night and put it to your eye. Immediately, the text that you otherwise wouldn't even be able to guess at, suddenly becomes quite clear.

    The scroll is certainly about curses, its papyrus laden heavily in written accounts of varying kinds. Curses for drought, for blindness, for infertility... Nothing about a curse for immortality. You start to check the second scroll and find more of the same, but still nothing concerning what you might need.

    Until you come upon the last few scrawled lines at the bottom. These perk your interest.

    The text is as vague as it is short. You read of the account of a young cavalryman who sought glorious death on the battlefield. He made the mistake of hassling an elderly man to give up a flask of wine. The old man was apparently looked quite a bit younger than his age, as the scroll details him as being some five hundred or so years old. The cavalryman, the one who sought death, is cursed with immortality.

    You come upon the last few small lines, crammed in nearly at the edge. Immortality as a curse is not without burden upon its caster. In order to break the curse, one must find its wielder and persuade him to recant. In addition, for every year that the cursed man lives, the caster appears to age.

    After making sure you didn't miss anything else that could have been important, you pass the scrolls back to Bob, who returns them lightly to their places.

    "Persuade, eh?" You frown, mulling over that phrasing. The text specifically said persuade, as though the one who initiated the curse must still be alive.

    You hope at least. If they are dead, its going to be damn hard to persuade them that you really need them to drop that pesky curse off of the Phoenix so you can just be rid of him.

    Has Kiara mentioned whether he was already immortal when she first met him? I don't think she's talked much about him, and I'm wondering if she might have done it, possibly by accident.
    >> Papa-N !!z0ABcqUnNAP 04/05/12(Thu)19:53 No.18588968
    Yeah I might have to switch up days, Thursdays always seem to crawl. Plus Easter weekend and all, but meh.

    "I never took you for one to read, mortal."

    You turn around and see Kiara, back against a shelf, eyebrow raised.

    "I like to read, sometimes..." You frown.

    "Seems you've found something good, hmm?" She smirks.

    "Good? We have to find some bastard that looks really old, and somehow convince him to drop the curse. This hardly seems good."

    "You're thinking too small. The point is, he can be killed somehow, and now we know how." Kiara smiles, apparently enthralled by the idea.

    "I was really hoping the damn thing would just tell me to use more rockets." You sigh and stand up from the table, "That would have been easy."

    "You wouldn't happen to know who cursed him, would you? Wasn't you, was it? Curse finger get a bit itchy?"

    "If it were me, wouldn't I appear as an ancient old woman?" Kiara sighs, "No, mortal, and there are plenty of magic users who could have fit the bill, more still willing to hold such a grudge. There is a reason most immortals appear old, and it isn't curses. Few ever climb to the height of immortality, fewer even before they are already old and grey."

    "So we're going to be looking for someone who looks ridiculously old? If they've been around for the five hundred years or more?"

    "Very old, perhaps appearing to be little more than a corpse. Still, anyone capable of managing such a curse isn't some toddling old fool. It would take a lot of power to make that curse, and a lot of experience."

    "Guess we should start at the old witches nursing home, eh?" You grin.

    "Shut up." Kiara starts floating away from you, arms folded.

    You follow along, partly because you aren't finished talking, partly because you know its annoying her.

    "So I've been thinking. If you made this place, couldn't you maybe magic us up something similar back in the states? Maybe less ancient shit and more couches and kegs on tap?"

    Kiara tilts her head back to look at you, her gaze already telling you that your idea is a bad one.

    "The amount of magic that this took to construct caused a maelstrom, a whirlpool a thousand feet across. The seas raged and the skies stormed for three days. Do you think I can do that without lighting up their tracking systems like the sun?"



    "Bah, it was a good idea and you know it. So anyways, did you find what you were looking for at least?"

    "About the family of Scipio? Some, what there was to find. Perhaps somewhere to start, if it still exists."

    This isn't necessarily as big a problem as she seems to think. If the result of casting such a spell is that destructive, the magical footprint could be many miles across- which would make it a bitch and a half to pinpoint whatever the hell it was used to create. Just fake them out by making some flashy secondary effect that they can pin the disaster on, and we get away scot-free with our new base. Or artifact. Or whatever. They won't be able to find our true purpose in the giant explosion of magic.

    "Hate to break it to you, but Vesuvius kind of buried it."

    "Under ash, I know. I also know that it wasn't unintentional, or I assume so, at least. The family was heavily established in that city, to the point that they could have likely at least diverted the path of the eruption, if it were just a natural cause. I'm not so easily convinced..."

    Kiara stops floating and turns to you.

    "No, mortal, I don't think that the eruption was just a random event. Not with such a magical presence in the area. I'm as intelligent as the rest of them, so if I wanted to hide something, far from prying eyes..."

    "You'd bury it." You finish for her, and she cracks a small smile and nods.

    "Under a blanket so thick that it would be nearly impossible to unveil it."

    "Guess you guys had never heard of a fucking Swiss bank account." You smirk.

    "We'll be in Italy, which from what we know is likely a base of Order power. Not only that, but we'll have to find some way to reach whatever is buried..." Kiara ignores your comment, already thinking to herself out loud.

    "Couple of shovels, maybe some magic TNT?" You shrug.

    "With any luck, they won't still be monitoring it... Though now that the Order knows I have two pieces once again..."

    You let her keep ignoring you, following behind her as she starts walking again. Kiara seems to be going over things in her head, yours is throbbing too hard to concentrate.

    "A hangover, no cigarettes, no coffee, stuck in a library... I don't think I've ever had a morning this bad." You groan.

    Kiara stops suddenly, turning around. Without a word, she reaches out and takes hold of your face. As her fingers touch your skin, relief washes over you like warm rain. You close your eyes and almost moan.


    "I'm going to market that. "Ruin" in a bottle, take one, hangover gone. Buy two and get your next one half off."

    Can she work significant amounts of magic while we're in the library, while remaining safely shielded from outside detection? Could she enchant us or our equipment with useful things, or better yet, use magic to work modifications which will be nonmagical when complete? We're a zombie already, there's not that much reason to avoid modding our body to have unnatural physical powers, if that sort of thing is in Kiara's skillset. And it could save our ass in a pinch.

    Why hello here. Always fun to wake up in the middle of the night and realize it's Zombie and Witch night.

    After previous-ish threads talk about references, I thought about doing some modeling. Haven't got the time or want for learning any rigging yet, so all models that I've done so far are in this rigid airplane pose. I'll do some rigging practise over the weekend, if I don't stuff myself to death with sweets and food.

    What program?

    If it doesn't suck and I become un-poorfag as fuck after I graduate and land a good job... I might briefly consider one until I find a vintage one that I like better.

    "Well... How about explosive rounds or something?"


    "Shit... Well, maybe make me better? I could use some extra toughness or something. Maybe a disguise?"

    Kiara looks at you blankly for a minute, before putting her hands on her hips and sighing.

    "I suppose, though I've already augmented you quite a bit as is. Lets see..."

    She floats toward you, extending her arm. Her fingers touch you, pushing into your shirt. You can feel the warmth of her hand... Wait no, way too hot just for thatholy

    "Fuuuuuccckkk!!!!" You jolt back, grabbing at the searing pain in your everywhere.

    "What. Did. You. Do?!?" You seethe through gritted teeth, eyes watery and squinted.

    "You wanted toughness, you got toughness. Thicker bones, better muscle..." She shrugs, "You're tougher."

    Pulling up your shirt, you see a very defined case of abs that most certainly hadn't been that cut before. With a giddy schoolboy grin, you clench them.

    "Stop that."

    You could stop that, or you could go... DEEPER.

    Pulling up your shirt a bit more, you make like you've always wanted to. Pecs bouncing like someone who's actually kept up with their squats, oats, and routine. You can feel your clothes pretty tightly now, it certainly is a strange feeling.

    "Quit playing with yourself, you'll go blind."

    "You know you like it." You smirk, "What next? How about some super senses? X-ray vision?"

    "I can make them as good as a human's can be, I suppose." Kiara shrugs, before touching your forehead with her index finger. This feeling is less profound, but there is a noticeable difference. You can make out some text on scrolls farther off than you would have before.

    "How do you like it?" Kiara asks, looking you over.

    "I like it all." You grin, flexing your forearm. "KRILLLIIIINNNNNN!"


    "Hey, can you maybe build a faraday cage... Inside me? I mean, it could mask us from sensors right?"

    Kiara laughs a bit, before turning around and floating toward the entrance again.

    "Magic doesn't work like that, your skin would still give it off. Besides, how would you function with a cage of metal inside of you?"

    "Oh, well... I guess..." You frown, a bit disappointing.

    Kiara stands underneath the entrance, gazing upward at the blue portcullis above. You can see the ocean through its gelatinous density.

    "Are you ready?" She asks, her purple eyes falling back down to you.

    "My body is ready." You nod, "And... Thanks, for doing all of this."

    Kiara's eyes glance down at the muscles almost bursting from your shirt, before looking back up and nodding.

    "You're welcome, mortal." She says simply.

    You stand there for a moment, before you get the feeling that you're supposed to do something here.

    "Stand underneath it."

    "Oh, right." You take a few steps forwards, and feel something tugging at your form.

    "Let it." Kiara tells you.

    So you do, giving in to the force that seems to be pulling you upwards. Gently you're lifted up, toward the round exit. You reach out to the surface of it, feeling it sucking in your hand. As your head reaches it, you take a deep breath and hold it. A few moments later, uncomfortable moments, you're back into the sea beyond.

    A large bull shark gives you a look that is a bit too-curious, which you remedy by punching it in the snout. The beast starts, thrashing in the water, before quickly swimming off out of sight.

    You make the long, strange walk back to the shore. Across the sandy bottom, through the weeds and mostly lifeless abyss.

    At long last, you surface close to shore, wading the last bit of distance quickly. Thankfully it's quite warm here, your clothes beginning to dry as soon as you step out of the water. Unfortunately, this being salt water, you know it's going to leave a sticky residue. You'll have to pick up some different clothes, or at least clean these.

    It doesn't take long to find your bike, still safe in the out of the way outcrop of stone. You check the bags and don't find anything missing, though it wouldn't be overly difficult to pick up weapons in Egypt.

    Sliding back onto the big BMW, you rev up the engine and put it into gear. The ride into the city isn't a long one, but by the time you arrive, your clothes are indeed sticky and nasty.

    I really do dig 90's soundtracks, though. Original Starcraft soundtrack was eargasm.

    Blargh, what time? I work starting at noon. Evening shift with the new guy that seriously carries a god damn Walther PK380 as a duty gun. I mean, WHY

    Heading toward the main dock of the city, you keep your eyes peeled for the kind of ship you're looking for. You ask around, though find it difficult with hardly anyone speaking English. You ask Kiara to translate for you, but that doesn't make it easy to repeat what she tries to tell you to say. Even when you do say it, the people act like you're at least half retarded.

    "Its changed from what I remember, cut me some slack..." She grumbles.

    Eventually you figure out a few ships headed toward Italy. Four of them. One you rule out immediately, a shipment of fertilizer, not your kind of shindig.

    Instead you check around, finding out what you can about the other ships.

    One is a tourist boat, ferrying people back to mainland Europe, it just happens to be stopping at Naples, which is fairly close to Pompeii.

    Another is a high class ferry, and judging by the clothes of the people boarding, not one for the unhealthy. You make out wooden tables through it's large windows. Its destined for Rome itself.

    The last two you consider are both run of the mill shipping vessels with unspecified cargo, but at least one appears to be an oil ship. One is headed for Rome, the other, for Bari.

    "Any input?" You ask Kiara.

    "As long as it's more comfortable than the last one, and I don't have to cram myself onto such a small bed? No."

    Fairly nice, high blue-collar kind of thing. The crew seems attentive, clean uniforms and whatnot, though they are certainly not European.

    You notice they aren't scanning bags, but open every few of them to take a cursory look. Though the power of money might be able to... Ease your entry.

    The non-oil supply ship has a diverse crew, quite a few Africans and just as many Thais.

    The oil tanker is almost entirely Saudi crewed.

    Though the thoughts of comfort aboard the tourist vessel are nice, you opt for the safer option.

    The cargo ship bound for Bari is an old girl, sides more rust than faded paint. She seems sturdy enough, though, and the rhythmic thrum of her engines sounds good.

    After approaching the crew, they lead you to the Captain. A hunched, elderly Thai man, who doesn't speak one damn word of English, or much of the various African languages. Thankfully the Thai mechanic translates for you, which is far easier than trying to have Kiara read minds and rattle off foreign words you don't understand.

    You work out a price, four hundred gets you the nicest private cabin. The Captain doesn't seem overly concerned, quite used to taking people aboard. What he isn't used to, however, is loading a bike quite like yours. The crew shoot you jealous looks, and you made sure that the saddlebags were locked before you handed it off, though you removed all the weapons and stuffed them into your duffel, which makes it quite heavy.

    The ship departs in the evening, as soon as its cargo is loaded. You take the time to inspect the cabin you rented. Sparse, white walled, and otherwise completely basic. Its bed is thankfully larger than the last, though there is still only one. It will at least be big enough to not have to sleep head to foot.
    >> Papa-N !!z0ABcqUnNAP 04/05/12(Thu)23:31 No.18591212
    "Much better than the last, but not as good as we could have had." Kiara comments as she takes a seat on the bed.

    "I didn't want to have to deal with anything we didn't have to, or take any unnecessary risks."

    "Point, mortal, point. This is certainly the safest of the options."

    "Why I chose it. Its incognito."

    You set down the duffel and shove it underneath the bed, it takes a bit of muscle to get it to fit. Thankfully you now have plenty to spare.

    Checking your watch, you figure you've got a solid two hours before the ship departs, which would give you enough time to head into the city for any supplies you might need. Though not enough to do laundry, which doesn't matter much, as the ship has its own machines.

    Which is good, because you really dislike the feel of dried salt on your clothes.

    The room also has a private shower, which you plan to take full advantage of as soon as you're underway.

    You head back into the city, sticking close to the docks, away from the city center. You don't want to get stuck in the traffic and miss your boat, after all.

    It takes several stops and a whole lot of blabbering in barely coherent Arabic that Kiara rattles off to you and you repeat. Eventually, though, you find what you're looking for.

    So you buy it. Five cartons of it.

    You lean against a street lamp as you light up one of the reds, and as you exhale, you do so with a pleasurable grunt.

    Inside the same store, wouldn't you know it, you find air fresheners. Of course the only ones worth buying are Black Ice, so you purchase two packs. Any more than one, or opening it all the way at once, is just overbearing. One for your bike, and one for the cabin because it vaguely stinks of SOMETHING, you just can't put your finger on it. At least now you'll have some on you to keep everything smelling nice.

    A few other stores net you some decent snacks for along the way, mostly western ones, but some domestic. You let Kiara help you pick, and she seems to go mostly for sweets, which means you've got a whole lot of sugar in the bag when you're headed back.
    >> Papa-N !!z0ABcqUnNAP 04/05/12(Thu)23:59 No.18591538
    You pause for a few moments as you watch a man standing on the street corner shouting in Arabic and gesturing to several camels.

    "Used camels." Kiara informs you.

    Before you make it back to the dock, however, you see something else that intrigues you. A small arms bazaar, mostly comprised of half-rusted 60's soviet gear, of little use to you. However you do find some night vision optics. You only have enough cash left for a 1pn58, which will mount up to either your AK74u or VSS Vintorez, which is also the only working optic out of the bunch that you can find.

    "The others need new tubes, but if you buy a camel off of that other salesman, you get two of the broken ones for the price of one." Kiara translates.

    Another shop nets you some local clothes, jeans and t-shirts, actual tennis shoes... Stuff that will let you blend. You do let yourself go and snag a pair of nice vintage '78 Ray Ban aviators.

    "How do they look?" You turn toward Kiara.

    She doesn't say anything, staring back at you through a pair of large and very chic purple framed sunglasses.

    Buying both pairs, you also grab a cheap sleeping bag from the "camping" section. Why there's a camping section in Egypt, you haven't a clue.

    Laden with goods, you nevertheless make it with more than enough time to make it back aboard.

    On the ship once again, the captain informs you that it's heading out of port shortly. You're pretty glad to hear that, eager to get on the way and out of Egypt. As much fun as it's been here, you really want to actually get something accomplished other than reading through old scrolls.

    Though meeting Socrates was pretty rad.

    The big old cargo ship finally gets underway, the massive engines firing up and pushing it away from the docks. It isn't long before you're heading right toward open water, steaming hard into the wind.

    You take the time to really get settled into your cabin, as you have several hours until dinner with the crew. They gave you the option for solitary meals in your room, but you don't mind the company.

    "Fuck I am so god damn tired..." You groan, stretching out and flopping down onto the bed. Kiara is busy floating above the ground, looking bored.

    You flip through one of the magazines you picked up, its all in Arabic, but at least it has pretty pictures of cars.

    "Someone's coming." She says suddenly, looking toward the door, "And they aren't here just to tell you dinner's ready."

    You hop off of the cot, sliding the duffel full of weapons out from under the bed.

    "What are they here for? Order guys?"

    "No, not Order. They're after your cash and your bike, then they plan on dumping you overboard. Six of them, pistols and shotguns."

    You snatch out the AK74u, the only thing that's going to be much use other than your Sig at the ranges allowed on the ship. The VSS is better for mid to long range engagements and the SMAW would fuck up the ship.

    "They're right outside the door now." Kiara warns, "The whole crew is in on it."

    Only one way to deal with this without using magic to completely brute force it- demonstrate that we're more trouble than they're prepared to deal with.

    Get ready to move fast. Objective here is going to be to blast out the door, disable 1-2 of them in melee and pin them as a human shield while threatening the rest with the AK. Once we're in that situation, it comes down to negotiation, and we can hopefully intimidate them into backing off and find someone who can translate to communicate the concept of "you tried, you lost; no hard feelings but if you do this again a whole lot of you die, so be happy with what I already paid" to the crew.

    If something goes wrong, don't hesitate to blast down all six of these guys and then tell the rest of the crew straight-up that they deserved what they got.

    If we're really going to shot, then Kiara can use as little magic as possible to deflect/eliminate the bullets, preferably in a way that can be passed off as luck and hopefully go undetected by the Order's sensors at range. For anything less, no magic.

    "Can you mess with them? Make them think twice about doing this?"

    "All at the same time? Fast enough before they arrive? No, but I should be able to take two, maybe three."

    "Which leaves three or four for me..." You check the chamber and find it loaded and ready. The 5.45x39 won't punch through the solid steel of the doors or walls, and it certainly isn't less than lethal ammo.

    "Do it." You tell Kiara.

    "Already on it." She replies, her face a mask of concentration.

    "Don't trip it until they get close if you can, I want to take the other ones by surprise." You tell Kiara as you press your back to the wall alongside the door.

    So you wait, sweat dripping down your forehead, white knuckle grip on your AK.

    "They're here."

    You can hear them now, quiet, strained voices through the steel door. Must be that enhanced hearing. They certainly are getting close now, nearly at the door...

    "Do it!" You shout to Kiara as you shove the door open with as much strength as you can muster. Enough to send the door flying off its hinges and down the hallway. A yelp of pain from one of the men as the heavy door knocks him over.

    You rush out of the opening, taking the remaining two by surprise. The other three you notice meandering about with very confused looks on their faces, none of them still armed.

    One of the men raises a hi-power, which you knock aside with a fist. Grabbing the man by the shirt, you shove him hard back into the other one. His Mossberg goes off, #4 scattering around the small hallway, ricocheting off of the walls.

    The Thai tries to level the shotgun again, but you're already on him. You have to pull your punches to not kill him outright, each blow knocking him backwards from sheer force.

    The fight is over as quick as it started, and you stand, still pumped on adrenaline, overlooking the six incapacitated men.

    You grab one of the crew, the only one not unconscious or otherwise completely incapacitated, and pick him up by the neck. The man struggles until you push the muzzle brake of your AK against his temple.

    "Who's in on it!?" You hiss, shoving him against the wall.

    He mutters something incoherent, even Kiara can't pick up on it.

    You throttle him around, pressing the rifle into him even harder, but release your grip around his neck enough to hopefully encourage him to play ball.

    "All of them, even the captain. There are ten others on the ship." Kiara informs you.

    "Guess that settles that."

    You punch him square in the jaw, light enough to just knock him out cold, before tossing the limp body aside.

    Rooting around the weapons they left behind, you find the Mossberg has several 12ga rubber rounds on the stock. You snatch them up and shove them into the tube. At the same time, you keep your AK on you. Even though you don't want to kill these guys, you aren't going to close that option if need be.

    "All the Order bullshit I put up with and here I am, fighting off muggers at sea..." You grumble, "Be my radar, please."

    "Five in the room down the hall, far left door, handguns. They don't know what to do, they heard the gunshot. They'll be coming out in a minute, I can take two out in that time."

    Have Kiara take a gun from one of the incapacitated crewmen and have her set up shop where you were previously, have her take a few shots to get their attention when they all pour out. Set up from a different angle and catch them in the crossfire with the shotgun.

    You sprint back to your room, quickly, and toss on the vest Diego had given you. Snagging a few flash bang grenades and shoving them into pockets.

    "Pick up one of those handguns." You instruct Kiara, pointing to a hi-point, "We're playing this one tricky."

    "I don't know how to use one very well..." She picks up the gun, handling it quite well despite her words.

    "Doesn't matter, just need you to be a distraction. I assume that bullets can't hurt you like that, right? Unless they hit me?"

    "Right..." She looks nervously at the handgun.

    "When they open the door, rattle off a few shots down the hallway. I'll hit them in the confusion."

    Kiara sets up, and you take position, crouched low as you can around a corner.

    Muffled, anxious chatter, and the door opens. On cue, Kiara expends several rounds down the hallway, the sound echoing against the metal.

    The men flinch, dropping low, scrambling to try to get back into the room. You take advantage of their lack of training.

    The first rubber round hits the lead man in the chest, right against his sternum. Judging by how quickly he dropped, you can guess that you likely snapped a few ribs.
    >> Papa-N !!z0ABcqUnNAP 04/06/12(Fri)01:17 No.18592454
    Another shot takes the second man in the abdomen, he drops like a rock. The third manages to raise his handgun before receiving a nice shot to the forehead. The way his neck snaps back almost makes you think it was a lethal shot, but you see his hands grab at his head.

    You quickly secure the weapons, ripping out the magazines and tossing the slides and frames far away from each other.

    "Nice shooting." You tell Kiara as she meets back up with you, hi-point still clutched in her hand.

    "The last five are on the bridge, captain included. They know their plan has gone south, they've locked themselves inside the bridge."

    Yeah but I liked the more realistic approach until they fucked it. Snipers shouldn't get suppression, they don't need it now that they can lolquickscope and OHK to the chest inside like 100m. Support guns are mostly completely broken, I've seen 1000pt+ streaks on suppression alone.... I could go on.

    Getting a bit tired of servers being 40% Engineers, 30% Recon, and 20% support. I hate when half my team is camping the fucking spawn as attackers on a rush map.

    Really I only had fun playing rush and hopping in the a10/frogfoot and just BBBRRRTTTTing everything to death. Now its just lame since the gun does fuck all to infantry.

    Its basically shifting to the infantry-only bullshit that killed BF2. Only good vehicle left is the attack helicopter, which is more or less invincible now if it has a decent pilot.

    Tie up the knocked out guys if you can. Have Kiara play with their minds, give one 'em of a serious case of cabin fever and start scaring them. See if they'll be a little more receptive to diplomacy after the stress piles on, the crew can all be used as hostages if need be.

    Deceive, trick and make them afraid. Throw one of their crewmembers trough the bridge window, then do nothing. Leave the bodies all around the bridge and if someone wakes up, make them scream and thus start psychological warfare against the bunkered down chaps. At some point they will break down.

    "Guess we're headed there, than." You grimace, wishing things hadn't gone down like this. You guess a quiet ride to Italy was just too much to ask for.

    Capping off the tube with another few shells, you start making your way toward the bridge.

    "They are trying to turn the ship around..." Kiara pipes up.

    "Can you stop them?"

    "I can, but its going to be better to just take them out. They are going to be pretty suspicious if half of them just start wandering around aimlessly."

    "I'll make this quick, than." You break into a hard run, following Kiara's directions as you head for the locked bridge. Its a quick sprint to the deck of the ship, and you can see the large windows of the bridge, as well as the imposing steel doors. Much heavier-duty than the ones inside.

    You creep up the steel steps, gun at the ready, approaching slow.

    Quietly you crawl up to the large windows, not daring to peek over inside.

    Instead, you fish out two flashbangs from your fest and hand them to Kiara.

    "Take these. Shoot out that far window and toss them inside."

    With a nod, she grabs the grenades and floats quickly past the windows. She doesn't have anything to worry about, they can't see her.

    "Go." You say in your mind.

    The blast of her 9mm and Kiara pulls the pins on both grenades, tossing them inside. You hear the bang, the windows cracking from the pressure. As soon as the grenades go off, you're moving. You stand up and fire off a burst through the window with the AK, shattering it. This allows you to level the mossberg, and you start pumping rubber rounds into the remaining crew. They are all laying on the ground already, clutching at their heads, but several are still armed and you aren't taking any chances.
    >> Papa-N !!z0ABcqUnNAP 04/06/12(Fri)01:39 No.18592707
    You bound over the windowframe, doing your best to keep clear of the jagged glass. Shotgun at the ready, you send another round into one of the men who is trying to right himself on the wheel.

    As you clear the rest of the room, making sure the last of them are down, you breathe a sigh of relief.

    "Shit, that could have gone worse."


    "I mean, shit, I didn't even have to kill anyone." You grin and laugh, shaking your head, the adrenaline still making you giddy.


    "I need a smoke." You fumble through your vest pockets. Everything is going to plan. Well, plan after the plan got completely bent over and fucked.

    That is, until, you see the telltale outline of the mi-28 bearing in hard on the ship, maybe a mile out at the most.

    Tch. I used to have a lot of fun sitting with an Igla or a Stinger and ruining the day of any helicopter without a superb pilot too. Since you reload (not sure if anymore) MANPADS just ever so slightly faster than their flares, it was pretty easy to hit them with a 1-2 punch and knock them right out of the sky with that second missile...

    BF3 was fun if I was in the mood for a semi-realistic shooter, but it sounds like unless they fix some things that the update's gone and taken a lot of the fun out of it...

    Only worked a few times per map before they got wise, but my god was that fun.

    You chance a look at the clock and notice it's already time for you to get back on the highway anyways. With a long sigh, you pick yourself up from the interrupted siesta and get the truck started.

    "Eh, is this the only piece of shit you've got? Doesn't even have any speeeners mang!"

    "Alright, crazy head esse. I gotta get dis shipment to like, Portland mang." You shift the truck into gear, which is easy considering it's a fucking automatic gearbox which means it also gets a total of shitting dick nipples miles to the galleon.

    Before you head out, you monkey with the radio until you find a station you want. The song of your people.

    Music blaring so loud you may as well have a full mariachi band playing for cinco de mayo in your cab, you get the big Volvo moving and head out of the truck stop.

    "So like, mang, we need to get you into shape mang." Isabella chides you.
