    LAST TIME ON AC QUEST: http://suptg.thisisnotatrueending.com/archive.html?tags=AC%20Quest

    "Morning Dave. You look like hell."

    "I didn't get a whole lotta sleep last night."

    You think back to what Elsie said last night, and about how Your family was doing.

    "Seems to be a bit of a thing going around." You try to be sympathetic as your pour a cup of coffee.

    "Probably because Elsie's a lil bit of a screamer. We're soundproofing your room by the way. Fuck these thin-ass walls."

    And so you chocked on you Coffee, while your sister walks in wearing what looks like the high-class stripper take on what a military uniform should look like.

    Oh today's just off to a WONDERFUL start.

    [ ] Ari, that not appropriate work wear.

    "Ari, that's not even remotely appropriate wor work."

    "What? It's a military uniform. That's what the guy at the shop said."

    "Yes. But you're missing several key points: Firstly, it looks nothing like OUR uniform. Secondly, it's more of a DRESS uniform style, which is the sort of thing you wear to look pretty, not for working in. Thirdly, that isn't a military uniform, but a stripper outfit designed to LOOK like a military uniform."

    "What? Bullshit, prove it."

    Dave walks over to her, grabs the back of her collar and gives it a yank. The jacket comes right off, leaving only the blouse and skirt.

    "You see this little magnets hidden in the seams? These are called 'Drama clasps'. They're designed to have enough pull to stay on during normal wear and use, but come right off with a sharp tug. They're mostly seen in old-school pilot jumpsuits in case they were to catch fire, and stripper outfits. Guess which you AREN'T wearing."

    Ari starts to blush "So wait, that guy lied to me?"

    "Not really. I think he just assumed you were a different kind of 'working lady'. To be fair, You've got the curves for it."

    Your sister is now completely mortified. Dave continues "Go talk to Elsie, she probably has a spare set of fatigues for you to borrow. They might be a bit tight, but they'll give you a better idea of what's smart to wear, since you're one snag sleeve away from 'naked' in those."

    She runs off to talk to Elsie.

    Dave looks at you and sees you're indignant look. "Man law says I can't touch her without your express permission anyway, so I'd rather not have the temptation to snag her skirt on something. Now I'm going to see how mush sound insulating foam costs." He drains his coffee and exits the room.

    Pretty soon Ari comes back wearing something moderately appropriate.

    Dave wasn't joking when he said it was going to be tight, it leaves very little to the imagination on her, while Elsie prefers her cloths slightly baggy.

    And now they'll probably be a little baggier.

    You send Ari to talk to Mooch for learning the basics of what's going on, while Elsie joins you.

    "Damn, that must be fun to deal with."


    "Your sister rapidly developing the body of a Porn Star and being that naive."

    "Oh yes, great fun. At least I know Dave's not going to make a move on her."

    Today Alex's little sister walked in literally wearing a stripper outfit.

    You helped Alex point out her mistakes like a friend should, and even reassured him that you wouldn't touch unless he said it was cool.

    Watching her bend over to adjust a power disributer for Mooch you swiftly come to a conclusion: You will either need to get his approval, or suck off a shotgun because Goddamn.

    You look over your shoulder, and see that Ari's having some trouble getting the ratios just right.

    You also see that Dave's staring at a box of donuts with horrifying dedication.

    You yell at Dave to hop over and help Ari twist her knobs to get her off that task.

    You are Alex. And you, Laurie, and Elsie are wondering what's caused Dave to have a little 'moment' this time.

    "...ANYWAY" you say, trying to bring their attention back to the task at hand. "We've narrowed it down to these three jobs: Take out this bandit guy calling himself 'Lord Killington', Opt into the next available slot for the Arena, or go on this escort mission for G.A. America transporting a prototype."

    "Escort Sounds dicey. I mean, it's the fast and direct route to Utah, but it goes RIGHT THROUGH Black Rock territory, and Prototype tech is pretty much THE thing to steal and sell to another corp."

    Elsie adds her two cents to Laurie's "This Killington guy's got the lowest reward, but anybody who actually calls himself that is a fucking retard. Easy money if I've every seen it, and we could use a sure thing."

    "Arena... we have no idea WHAT we might see there. Apparently they have something like 50 different designated combat zones in the greater metropolitan area, each with multiple potential 'special rules' that alter the stage, such as not touching the water or only using certain types of weapon."

    "So how do you think we should swing this?"

    Actually it may not be a bad thing. A c-ranker can't possibly bring out the true abilities of an sa-rank mech. Hell, his victims are all only unaware of the threat until recently.

    3-b rankers can take him out if we play smart.

    Mooch continues laying out his scheme "No, Elsie's got thermals, so I'm gonna put her on one end and tell her to shoot anybody that isn't you coming out of that hole. Laurie, I want you planting beacons down there. i want you o turn that whole place into a spider-web we can track him on. Dave and Alex, you're our strike team. You stay up top until we've got a fix on him, or Laurie needs help. Then you come down like the wrath of god on this guy."

    He then brings the carrier to a stop. "Ari, you wanted to learn, so you're helping me run over-watch."

    She gives him a sharp nod in return.

    "Alright" You say, "Let's mount up."

    You check your synch gauge. You're only at 50%.

    Lower than normal, but then this is technically a new core.

    A muffled explosion echos out of the canyon.

    "That was one of my trip mines. Sense that went offline indicates that it's right to your south."

    "On it." You reply, and you vault over Dave and skid down the wall to the floor of the canyon. Looking around, it's only wide enough that about three cores your size can move around, and couldn't be more than 70 feet deep. So it's a nice corridor of fire to work with, and just enough room to dance away from a melee opponent.


    You move towards the section indicated, and see some charred rock, as well as some broke stone and electronics.

    Then you spot the skid-marks and socrch from somebody boosting away.

    Without even stopping you consider the implications, you feel your body spin around and start to shift to the left, catch sight of your target swinging down with a... what the FUCK?!

    .... And the shock of pain makes you actually gasp for air, as he wheels it back in. Then you see it, some sort of a flail attached to a gun.

    As it retracts you begin to understand his core design. Your computer's struggling to get a lock, so he's got jammers. His flail gun is designed to use some sort of a spring to give it momentum, and then he uses that bizarre booster array to use his own body as a counter-weight. In the narrow confines of this canyon, he can't quite bring it's full devastating potential to bear, but literally everywhere is a box for him the swing in, and he's got some sort of an canon on his left arm for causing a big bang if you get to far from him.

    On the other hand, he doesn't have a lot of room to dodge himself, and you've clearly got more armor if it comes to a slugging match.

    You think about how to play this....

    [ ] Start shooting now, force him off and get out of the trench.
    [ ] His hammer's not 'reloaded', rush him with an over-boost kick.
    [ ] Wall of missiles, they aren't seeking and he doesn't have visible point defense.

    Elsie's shot goes wide. He pauses when he lands. He knows you've got at least two others here, so he's clearly taking a moment to reconsider his odds.

    I've only seen someone oneshot an enemy core once before AC V. It was a special setup in 4, not 4A,, that was tweaked to simultaneously punch two 07-Moonlights into a lightweight quadruped with the maximum attainable amount of Blade and EN Skill possible. In the Japanese version.

    Dave just did that, with just one arm.

    You sling the AC right into Dave's waiting arms.

    He taps his boosters for some extra momentum, and launches himself forward a step and swings him fist in a perfect arc.

    That's when you see it. The guy clearly hasn't spotted Dave behind him. That can be the only explanation for what happens next.

    He boosts backwards, right into the arc of his attack. If it weren't for that, Dave might have missed entirely. As it was, he politely wrapped pretty little bow around his head, and then lay on the curb at Dave's feet for optimal stomping angle.

    You watch entranced, as the fist begins to connect and shove the rod forward, perfectly center-punching the cockpit. It also hits the reactor, and arks out something inside, as the 30 foot tall mech begins the writhe around the rod as it's launched through the body, so violently that it's actually dissembling itself.

    You watch in silent awe as you realize two things: Mooch will probably record this, and set it to dramatic music while providing a step-by-step for how this symphony of violence came to be.

    The other is much more simple. You've never, before today, met somebody stupid enough to LEAN INTO A PUNCH.

    You retrieve the Flail-gun, as the mech detonates into the gorge after Dave kicked it in.

    You get in, Lawrence offering to drive since Mooch is too bust freaking out to do it himself.

    He immediately plugs all four of your cores in to try and get multiple angles, not just to edit the OPTIMAL VIDEO, but also, he claims, to make a sculpture of the event, to immortalize it forever.

    THAT might be going a step too far.

    Shortly after starting the download, he calms down and notes that he never downloaded the data from the fights at hope. On Dave's he sees the two kills in rapid succession, getting another squee of delight. On your he sees the fight against Nine-Ball. The room falls silent as you watch the blows fly back and forth, launching him back in the initial assault, blowing him back with some masterful gun-use.

    Then the charge, and you can almost feel the pain of losing your arm withe group watching. Then you force him back, lose the gun. A chill goes down your spine when you hear him ask what he had to do to make you surrender in that too calm voice.

    You didn't realize the data was also recording the audio from the coms.

    You also totally forgot the bit immediately afterwards.

    Dave turns to you. "You know, I was going to make some snide comment about you never topping what I just pulled off. But honestly?" He gestures at the screen "I think you just did."

    Ari seemed shocked by how incredibly bad-ass her brother and his friends actually are.

    Mooch's brain has clearly taken a temporary holiday while it tries to process what it just witnessed.

    Elsie seems to be the only one who noticed the edge of pain and hate in your voice, and your obvious discomfort at re-living that fight.

    You excuse yourself to go inspect the damage to your core.

    Elsie follows you down.

    You turn to face her. "What Dave just did to that guy out there, that was almost me. I could feel it right there, I just shifted without even thinking about it, and he took my arm instead of my heart. I then, against all odds, managed to beat him, or so I thought. I got very lucky, and took his head off."

    She slowly wraps her arms around you. "That guy was good. You can't blame yourself for him fooling you. You can't blame yourself for losing. He was so far out of your weight-class it's a miracle you survived at all."

    "I could have finished it right there. I could have put my sword through his cock-pit and killed him, right there. Instead I got cocky. I thought about it, but I didn't. Do you know what would have happened if I stabbed him?"

    "Yes. He would have revealed his trick sooner, and used his considerably less damaged core to go through you instead of around you. You told me yourself that we can't hang up on maybes and what-ifs. What happened yesterday happened yesterday. All we can do is live with today and hope tomorrow's a better day. Right now we've got enough problems without moping about what might have been."

    She gently turns you around and gives you a kiss. "Right now, let's focus on the positive. We took out a bandit, and thus made a world slightly but measurably better. Damage was light, and we got a little paycheck waiting back home. Your discount junker worked like a charm, and we can all go to sleep happy tonight.

    As you roll back into town, Mooch gets into contact with the Raven's nest.

    He then walks back out of his coms room and looks down at the team.

    "Guys. That guy got reclassified as an SA threat after we set out. The reason he almost got Alex down in the trench was because he had some crazy experimental tech on him."

    "So, what does that mean for us?"

    "It means we busted that mission like we were S rank, against an SA threat. We're getting more than TRIPLE the pay we thought we were going to get. That 70k we had banked? Just clumb all the way to 770."

    "Not bad for One day's work gents."

    "Now here's the real question: Ho much do we keep?"


    "We can use that to upgrade some of our gear, but that'll eat most of it up. We can also do repairs for our cores and set enough aside to pay for OUR food and stuff in the hanger for under 70k this time, and give the rest to Zack to help the people get fixed up."

    "Sounds good."

    "I'll start doing diagnostics right away."

    Dave grabs a box of something labeled 'Banshee Break'. "I got a little something I need to work on in the meantime."

    Ari volenteers to help.

    Dave seems slightly uncomfortable about this, but they start to go upstairs. He turns around about half-way up. "Hey Alex, now would be a good opportunity to go out for a night on the town, if you were so inclined."

    You take the hint nd remind Elsie that you did promise her a proper date.

    Could you give me a general idea of where Synch scores tend to correlate with ability? Is 50 high for a B rank pilot? Does anyone ever get to 80-90?

    What are the Synch scores of the rest of our team?

    What is the normal pricing on B-A rank weaponry and standard parts, how much of a discount can you get from going black market rather than legitimate suppliers, or does black market just let us get parts we normally aren't allowed to buy?
