Your name is Ekaterina Zhanna and you led a relatively carefree life far from the impacts of the frontlines, nevertheless you were found to possess unique talents and gifts that, for all intent and purpose, may very well be unique to you and you alone for you have no knowledge of anyone else being able to read people’s minds and emotions, but that’s merely the tip of the iceberg. Right now, we have the pressing matter of actually meeting our comrades after a very stressful day. Here is the twitter: https://twitter.com/TaleOfMonsters Archive: http://suptg.thisisnotatrueending.com/archive.html?tags=Muvluv+Alternative+Quest%2C+Collective+Game%2C+BETA%2C+Espers%2C+Mechs
[09:00 am June 04 2001. Aboard the TSF carrier known as "Big Mama"]You’ve spent the last thirty minutes pacing in your room after waking up from your usual nightmare, the stress of yesterday seems to still be working its way into your body and you’ve managed to catch 4 hours of sleep at most. Needless to say that the night was particularly long and remembering the fresh events only worked to fuel your insomnia, along with your instinctive fear of sleep due to that damnable nightmare."Can I really become a pilot?"In the end that was the question that popped the most in your head. You’ve dreamed all your life to go inside a TSF, but now that the option is almost within your reach you feel some reservations. After all, your livelihood and day to day existence was just stolen from you…Is this the kind of sacrifice one must make to become an Eishi?A loud knock on your door almost makes you jump. The solicitor, however, doesn’t wait for your acknowledgement for they open it shortly afterward.Good thing you weren’t doing anything important. There was already a set of clothes made especially for you in the crude wardrobe. Nothing but a black t-shirt and blue jeans.The one to invade your room is the blond girl from yesterday who, upon looking at you, breaks into a large smile and puts one of her hands on her hip, not minding the fact that she broke the rules of privacy. Then again, maybe you’ve stayed cluttered in here for a while."Come with me, it’s about time you get to meet the crew."--Your tried your best to keep your cool but couldn’t find much will to respond to the girl small talk. You forgot her name after yesterday’s commotion but at the very least she revealed it to you after the short walk down the hallway.Alexandrine Mirabelle, Surface Pilot and former newest recruit that seemed quite glad to lose her title. There was quite a bit of mischief within her.
The room you were led to looked very cozy despite the metallic nature of its furniture.Relatively small, it was nonetheless filled with stuff you’d see in the city: two couches in front of a wall mounted television, a small bar, a few tables and chairs here and there… This is probably violating military regulation. Still, it looked like the perfect place to unwind."Right-O, here’s our little mascot."The French girl cut straight into your train of thought and finally forces you to look at the numerous people who, of course, had all turned to look at you the moment you entered; she even went as far as putting both of her hands on your shoulders after her statement.Barring the one clinging to you, there were four other people looking very much different from one another, with one familiar face. You immediately started to read them for first impression, with all of them sharing very similar feelings; empathy and fondness, but you weren’t able to form a clear picture beside the fact that they seemed to like you. At least there wasn’t any pity."Well then!"A vigorous voice followed the rattling of a chair as one of the two men stood up with a broad smile. He’s got short hair and a solid build that clearly stands out with a good amount of developed muscles. He walks toward you with clear steps and puts his hand forward."Name’s Alfonso. Alfonso Mariano. I’ve participated in Rain Dancers and would delight in giving you a few tips. I always wanted to have my own little cute rookie!"Ah…You’re not good at being the center of attention. Thankfully his statement is more than enough of an excuse to stare awkwardly. Strangely though, he seems to be enjoying himself."You weren’t that creepy when you welcomed me last year."Thankfully, the blond girl jumped in."Each time I saw you outside the module you looked like you were about to go berserk. A man has to back off sometime y’know?"
Before she could respond, a new arrival interrupts. One that you remember seeing yesterday. Standing straight with hair almost as long as yours put in one long ponytail. The dignity in her entire presence could only be described as knight-like, and while she abandoned the prim clothes for a black camisole and jeans, she certainly didn’t lose in charisma."Your fondness of self-derision tends to give a poor first impression."To which he replies with a laugh."A man has to know when to laugh at himself!"Walking back to one of the chairs, Alfonso doesn’t look one bit dejected despite your impression. Finally, the two late arrivals make themselves known."Name’s Adam Manley. I’m the Field commander, so if you’ve got any problem, you come talk to me alright?"
He’s the tall guy that was pursuing Mister Mariano yesterday.He’s… Very tall. You’d guess him at a good 190 centimeters and certainly built like a prim and proper military man with a lot of presence. He really gives you the same impression as the aging generals you’ve rarely seen in the various military bases you’ve been to. His dark skin also sticks out quite a bit. This is probably the strongest portrait of a "veteran" you’ve ever seen."He’s just a big cozy bear."Coming from the last person to introduce herself, you gaze at a relatively short girl, who happens to be the closest one to your height. She’s garbed like everyone else and had nothing to envy the others pilots in terms of fitness with the only clear difference being her dusky, brownish skin and, in contrast to Shigeko and Alexandrine, her hair was kept short and boyish with a strange greenish tint. She appeared relatively peaceful and elegant but didn’t give the same impressions as Shigeko. She looked… Peaceful, for lack of a better term. "Name’s Berenice Salama. It’s a pleasure to meet you and if I may, your hair looks wonderful."Oh… A compliment.…Dammit what are you supposed to say? These guys definitely look at ease and relaxed and here you are growing increasingly stressed!
>>24608192Thank her for the compliment and find out what we're doing today.
>>24608863Let's get our name out there as well. Everyone may have already been briefed on us, but introducing oneself is always polite regardless.
>>24608954Yeah good point first impressions are vital.
‘’Th-thanks’’Your voice cracked, but it was thankfully ignored, still this may not be the first time you stand amidst highly trained military personnel it isn’t similar to what you had in your childhood. Everyone is so… relaxed.For now you won’t mind the hands of the blond on your shoulders.‘’My name is Ekaterina Zhanna. It… it is a pleasure to meet all of you’’You focus on the girl, Berenice, while you talk, her smile is nice and soft and you can’t discerns any images beside the colors of emotions that fluctuate between blue and light purple, there’s only one person with a different stance, the young man that presented himself as Alfonso, your awkwardness seem to amuse him.‘’You needn’t be so stiff, you’ll be right at home here fast’’ Alexandrine tries to reassure you and, motivated by a sudden pulse of pride, you decide to look up at everyone who have yet to talk amongst themselves, probably out of respect.‘’What is it that you have in store for me today?’’Even if your night of sleep was worthless, you’d like to take the attitude require by your ambition, it all start here after all. ‘’Right to business’’The one to talk was Shigeko, who also took a step closer to you while simultaneously causing the blond to leave, there’s a silent exchange between everyone present and many a small nods as you wonder what message was just sent; you’re only picking up emotions for now, you’ll need a few days to start reading thoughts properly. ‘’You’ll be trained as a cadet on this carrier, while none of us have proper credentials to properly watch over you we’ll still do what we can, that mostly means you’ll have to choose one of us as a sort of mentor’’Proper procedures are really thrown out the window when it concern you doesn’t it?‘’To put it simple, today you will become a pupil, are you fine with this?’’
>>24609359No backing out now
>>24609410Let's get down to business.
>>24609359"What am I gonna have to do?"
‘’I…am’’You almost said ‘’I think so’’ but that certainly wouldn’t do, especially with the eyes of 5 highly trained veterans, you really don’t want that shared empathy they’ve got to downgrade into outright pity.‘’What am I gonna have to do?’’The girl behind you walk to your flanks, posting herself in between you and the now standing Alfonso who let out a small laugh as he and her share a glance, you pick up the color of amusement and slight aggression, which make you miss Adam movement as he start talking.‘’Choose a supervisor for your basic training and a review of the theory on your knowledge’s on TSF, the one you choose will watch over you as you train body and mind for properly piloting a machine and eventually join our little squad, you probably won’t be truly officially commissioned, but we’ll give you all the help you’ll need’’He stop for a moment, gauging your reactions, you feel a mix of stress, joy and fear at what you are just about to do.‘’That’s the gist of it, you’ll learn martial arts, CQC, weapons firing, train your body, all that jazz, you’ll have to choose one of us to truly help you out and, we’ve talked about this yesterday, we’ll be fine with whoever you choose’’As you comb over each and every pilots present, there’s an overall feeling of peace and anticipation, with Shigeko probably looking the most reserved.>Here you can you can talk to whomever you want before choosing, I can also post what bonus the mentor will give you if you wish.
>>24609707Can you go ahead and post the bonuses"
>>24609707>I can also post what bonus the mentor will give you if you wishThat would be helpful.
Shigeko Susumu Takara = [Close Quarter Combat specialist, pure Storm Vanguard. You will be unable to fill in for a different position in any formations, for the possibility of becoming a true reckoning force, with or without guns. Maybe you'll part your own sea of BETA and truly become one with your machine?] Best synergy with your affinity.Alexandrine Mirabelle = [Part Storm Vanguard, part Gun Sweeper. Allow you to extend into the Gun Sweeper role; however the young French is an extremely aggressive pilot so you won’t lose much on your Vanguard affinity. Expect to be fitted with lots of guns, but nothing too high caliber and can fit in either the Storm Vanguard or Gun Sweeper for any formations] Berenice Salama = [Pure Gun Sweeper that fill in the Vanguard position when truly needed. Having her as a mentor will expend your polyvalence considerably, while gain an overall skillset similar to Alexandrine, with close quarter abilities evolving into remarkable twitch accuracy. Your style will become much more controlled, even peaceful which will extend to your emotions, possibility of gaining benefit traits of self-control relatively faster than with someone else.] Alfonso Mariano = [Part Gun Sweeper, part Blast Guard. You will be entirely fitted with guns, with the possibility of wielding the Mk.57, dubbed ‘’Arty gun’’. He will provide a certain degree of self-control similar to Berenice, while teaching you how to fire a giant gun mounted on a mech properly while staying out of reach, your Storm Vanguard affinity isn’t ruled out however, you’ll be much better in the events of close quarter] Adam Manley = [Pure Blast Guard. Will make you a perfect candidate for the Mk.57 and other bigger guns while making you a fantastic laser killer thank to pinpoint accuracy. As the Field Commander, you may actually gain some insight in leadership and self-control, expect to be kept relatively far and cover your peers to insure they’re survivals]
>>24609808Shigeko Susumu Takara seems the best for our position
>>24609889We can leave the choice later on if need be, I also forgot to post the character sheet at the start, even if nothing new happened. http://pastebin.com/k3ZDBLPY
>>24609808Voting for Takara. If we're going SV, we're going SV all the way.
>>24609889>>24609987Sure, let's go with pure SV.
>>24609707>Here you can you can talk to whomever you want before choosing.>implying we would want something besides our very own Noble Confidant regardless of the other options availableAnd then on top of that:>>24609808> Best synergy with your affinity.C'mon, man. You're making this too easy on us.Though to be fair, Alexandrine seems like the way better choice if I were trying to min-max for overall survivability rather than just voting based on Best Girl-envy. Despite how well it seems to work out for everyone plot-relevant, going full Melee on BETA is absolutely pants-on-head retarded.
>>24609808I say Alexandrine Mirabelle.
>>24610078>>24610048On second thought, yeah, I'm changing my vote from Takara to Alexandrine.
>>24610022>>24609987Storming the night it is.>>24610048Each have obvious benefits, I was more or less stating what everyone would give you as a whole. Swording the BETA is perfectly fine
>>24610078>>24610121Oh, seem like were tied for now. I'll wait and roll a dice if the stalemate doesn't end
>>24610148i voted for Takara if it wasn't obvious >>24609889
>>24610126>>24610148For what it's worth, my post >>24610048was voting for Takara as well, despite the spoilered bit that may have implied otherwise.Probably should've made sure I was clear about that.
Seem like we've got 3 in favor of Storming with the jap, and 2 with sweeping with the French. I think its safe t oassume the choice is set, I'll write the continuation
The next few minutes were spent relatively peacefully, your awkwardness managed to filter out as each of the Eishi made themselves comfortable and conversed amongst themselves as you observed them silently.They probably know about your power, this impression extend into certainty as you manage to finally pick up some images from each persons, which represented conflicts and peace at once, as if whatever they were thinking juggled between two subjects that inevitably narrowed into one thought.Each of them suffered through some kind of incompetence, which they want to make certain will never be imparted on you.The one that really stuck was the gallant Shigeko Susumu Takara who, unlike the other 4, always looked at you with a reserved expression, but for a single second an image popped in your mind and disappeared like the flash of a gun.A city in flame in the background and wreckages of Tactical machines littered the ground amidst BETA organs, with many still smoking craters.You didn’t have time to properly identify anything else and when Alexandrine put her hands on your shoulders, you almost passed out, which prompted a remark from Alfonso.‘’Don’t kill our promising rookie!’’‘’You’re just jealous she won’t choose you!’’
A bit more back and forth followed, which thankfully gave you enough time to get your bearing.‘’Hey hey, Kat. This here person, Shigeko? She’s a Royal Guard! At least, she was. I’ve been trying to get her to spill some beans, but hey, you believe in Chivalry and Honor right? Noblesse Oblige and all that? Those Guards in Japan are practically samurai! If true Honor and Chivalry were to meet we’d have a truly invincible force!’’ What… is she saying? You just stare at her utterly confused, her tone increased in tempo enough for anyone to know everything she was saying by the third word and Shigeko made sure to let out an audible, dejected ‘’hmph’’ as the girl monologue continued.‘’Next you’ll say the Rafale is better than the Typhoon!’’Mister Alfonso breaks right into the conversation and the girl snap back at him.‘’It is, dammit!’’For a moment you give a pleading look to Berenice who’s been watching you all along, the short exotic girl simply give you a smile that somehow chill your bones.Thankfully, said Royal Guard had enough and freed you from the overexcited French girl going on a tirade about ‘’flexible arms’’ and ‘’sweeping guns’’ with a good dose of ‘’French storming engineering allowing for proper…’’ You lost her at this point. ‘’Don’t mind her, you think you’ll be able to do fine?’’For a moment you look at her dog dag, so you don’t have to look up at her. Still you’ve come to a conclusion, how will you proceed?
>>24610790"Please take care of me. If I'm good enough for you."
>>24610812Why am I finding myself liking this choice of words a lot?
>>24610882Because it will be amusing and she's Japanese while the MC isn't and so wouldn't think it's too weird.
>>24610938Yeah, that would be it.
>>24610812That sound pretty awkward.I like it
"Please take care of me. If I'm good enough for you."You don’t know if that how a pupil is supposed to ask, much less about the etiquette with someone that was, or is, obviously high up in the Japanese hierarchy still stuck in the past, but the surprise you pick up is probably a good thing. You even go as far as putting your head down and wait for her to talk.‘’Call me Master, and I’ll make sure you’ll be trained properly…’’…You look up much more surprised than confused, upon seeing her obviously amused smile and the fact that her emotions were still good and peaceful; you come to an obvious conclusion. ‘’I was attempting something mirthful, but I’ll make sure to forge into a proper a Tactical Surface Pilot, it won’t be easy but I’ll make certain to not waste your goodwill’’All of those people probably have weird sense of humour.‘’Oh man, she chose the lioness’’‘’Of course, Shigeko look like a knight, it’s only normal’’‘’Hmm, I wonder how a Royal Guard will do with a pupil’’Somehow it feels like you were in some kind of matchmaking program, the only one to not talk was the field commander.‘’You’ve never went into basics, right?’’Shigeko ask and you can only nod, however whatever she was about to say next is rudely interrupt when the door to the room opens and Adam immediately screams‘’Attention!’’ Next came 5 set of salutes.‘’At ease’’The clear voice of Victor Langley pierce the silence, the tall commander seems to really be the type to wear sunglasses inside, still he does give a sort of impression different from everyone else and of course, you can’t read him at all. ‘’We’ll be conducting a full squad simulation, all of you prepare yourselves immediately, Ekaterina you’ll be coming with me.’’
--With your every joint stiffer and stiffer your shoes clanged every steps of the way toward wherever Victor was guiding you, the hallway of the carrier were spacious but active and you crossed path with many a soldiers and personnel members that stopped to salute they’re commander who, each time, repeated ‘’at ease’’ without so much as stopping for them, your destination seemed to be deeper inside the bowels of the ships and well outside the surface Pilots quarters, although the door leading to it was obvious given the ‘’Simulation Room’’ written nicely on the door. You’ve read about those things before, but seeing it on person is always something else. 12 big metallic cubes were perfectly aligns to each other inside the long, but not too large, room with an amazing set of hydraulics beneath especially made to replicate TSF movements, there was also an inside room with tainted glass where Victor swapped a card through the required lock and, looking at your intimidated self, nodded at you to step inside. Needless to say you had no idea what the various consoles were about. ‘’Today I want to test your powers’’He suddenly says as he close the door.‘’While basic training is needed, we’ll need to speed your training and I believe this exercise will be perfect, I trust this is fine with you, Ekaterina?’’Standing inside a small control room next to a tall, intimidating commander give you many conflicting feelings, but how will you answer his question?
>>24611476Just nod our head and look exceedingly awkward and uncomfortable.
>>24611510This, but at least ask him what he means by speeding our training up. We gonna get thrown into a Fortified Suit already?
‘’Ah… yes… I think.’’You wonder if you even have the option of saying anything else, still your shaking voice soon disappear as he relentlessly pursue.‘’This will be the first you’ll attempt to imprint from a live simulation with many people, it contain some risk and as such you will have to make sure that you keep a close attention to your body, especially your head.’’He pauses, his head turned to look at you while you can only gaze at his sunglass.‘’If you feel lightheaded, hear a strange ringing, sharp constant pain in the middle of your forehead, think of them as warning and stop immediately, am I understood?’’You frown at his explanation as you remember that your mom and dad never even once hinted at such a possibility.‘’Yes but… what do you mean by speeding up my training?’’To which he reply with the same deadpan tone.‘’So you can properly synch with the team, or find a way to imprint from someone here, either are good results as far as we’re concerned.’’
Finally, the 5 pilots walk into the room and immediately move to one of the big metallic cubes without so much as exchanging a word, although many glances and gestures were thrown with everyone giving a thumb up as they walked to they’re destination. They’re fortified suits looked absolutely wonderful, even if the dull gray was a seriously lackluster color the simple way it clung to everyone body gave a sort of presence that was properly only matched by knights of old.It really is a wonderful piece of equipment. ‘’Adam, we’ll be running course H-03’’You didn’t notice Victor talking through one of the intercom, the rough face of the Field Commander appeared over one of the many consoles and his voice resonated in the control room without a hint of static.‘’Hive? Shit, you’re pretty harsh on us today’’Many comments were also heard from everyone else, Alfonso seemed quite happy to be sitting; Berenice looked like she was meditating while Alexandrine had a large smile akin to a hungry predator, your mentor however, had absolutely no slip up in her guard, she was looking ahead clutching her controls without so much as hint of tension.One console displayed everyone vitals and beside the various spike of excitements, everyone looked fine. ‘’Synch is 100%... ready when you are, boss’’ >Here you can focus on everyone as a group and try to imprint something of the exercise>Or focus on your mentor. >If you think you can do something else, then you can ask as well
>>24612077I say start with mentor. Work on personal skills before trying to get group skills.
>>24612167Eh... Sure, why not. Imprinting everyone else might be necessary later, though.
>>24612260Agreed. But there's no point having general skills while we personally suck. Then we're just dragging the team down.
>>24612275True. I was just figuring that having an idea of how the others operate via imprinting would be effective when we're finally working together with them.
>>24612077>fortified suits looked absolutely wonderfulI know exactly what you mean.
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=P70tRVmT8dEYour eyes are drawn to the monitor giving a crystal clear image of your mentor, Shigeko Susumu Takara who looks a bit silly with the weird chin piece clinging to her face, but the gentleness that was present on her reserved feature is completely gone, replaced by tension and resolve that is… completely lacking on your person.It’s hard to admit, but you really are a trainee.‘’Begin’’Victor voice cut straight into your train of thoughts.The biggest monitor gives you the image of something truly alien; giant walls of some kind of greenish material extend in an endless tunnel at the front of back with probably insane distance beneath the soil and roof, the entirety of the architecture look like some kind of long, endless serpent.
Regardless, you’ve got something to do here and as the units start exchanging call sign and immediately proceed down the northern path, you focus on the camera giving you the image of Shigeko spearheading the position, 5 Ef-2000 Typhoon barreling down the hive structure at insane, practiced speed with her as immediate scout.It didn’t take long for the enemy to show up, but you resisted the urge to look as guns started blaring and machines entered evasive maneuvers, the sounds seemed truly authentic, especially when the machines cut in the air and landed on the ground…No, focus, focus! Depleted uranium smashed onto the aliens and ripped them apart where the stood, despite her close quarter armaments Shigeko didn’t take out her swords when she was pressed into close combat, in fact the entire unit was running, bypassing as many BETA as possible to plunge deeper and deeper into the hive.‘’3 minutes, good times’’Victor mutters.‘’Lasers!’’ Alfonso screamed before the radiation alert blared and immediately your mentor face stiffened and she…> [Charged forward to deal with the problem head on]> [Stayed in formation and took out her sword to slow down the BETA advance]> [Made herself bait]> [Kept her guns and fired onto the lasers threat]
>>24612922honestly I dont give a fuck about muvluv except the suitsin fact I dotn even know what its about or what peoples names arenor do I have the desire tosorry for off topicness
>>24612922I don't think our esper will look that lewd
>>24613227> [Kept her guns and fired onto the lasers threat]
>>24613299Aww, but that's the best kind of esper!At least have some double-sized breastplate, because we totally need the armor. That hasn't even been done yet.>breast gestitplSee? Captcha agrees.
>>24613227> [Made herself bait]
>>24613227>[Kept her guns and fired onto the lasers threat]Gotta focus on the Lasers first and foremost.
>>24613227> [Stayed in formation and took out her sword to slow down the BETA advance]>>24613299Disappointing.>>24613273I came for the suits, stayed for the waifus, both mechanical and organic.

>>24613419>DisappointingCan this really look lewd?
>>24613498If you throw her in a skintight suit, yes.
>>24613524>>24613498Skingtight suits make everything better, and more lewd.
>>24613479I'm sure it'll work.
Rolled 11= Bait2= Dakka
>>24613574Indeed. Just take a look at Walken, quite possibly the lewdest girl.
>>24613613Oh, fuck you dice. Just, fuck you.Good thing is just a simulated exercise.
> [Bait was the good choice, imprint successful…] ‘’Bait… she’s going to be bait’’You mutter under your breath, Victor doesn’t acknowledge your statement and you frown as you concentrate on your mentor, whose faces has stiffened and you hear a loud clank as she put her every strength into her arms thrusters. Normally, as Storm Vanguard and the head of the formation she would have opened fire the moment the lasers came into view, which was half a second before Alfonso but that was assuming she had a clear line of sight.With thousands of BETA crawling out of the ground, the pack of 15 lasers was well hidden beneath a few Forts, without counting the distraction of Tanks and Grapplers with the few odd Destroyers class ramming into the smaller strains as each pilots evaded them flawlessly.Her thoughts came to life and you knew what to expect before Adam stern voice resonated inside the room.‘’Lasers-01 !’’Shigeko thrust forward without second while the entire unit retreated back, Alexandrine and Berenice creating a temporary clear LZ with Adam lining up with artillery gun, the Royal guard started firing without aiming, not even sparing a single glance as she charged right into the three Forts class to sue them as cover, her piloting was nothing short of masterful. She was pushing the Typhoon well into its limit and so far, the bright turn and absolutely insane g-forces of her maneuvers as she jumped from the wale, rid a grappler full of bullets and used it as another landing point, was simply dizzying.
You missed many more of the actions, but each and every single one of her move was… made without hesitation, even when her thruster forcefully made her go backward to dodge one of the Forts acid whip, a laser was fire right into the small opening between the two fortress aliens and blew up her right arm as she managed to twist her machine, offering her profile instead of cockpit.‘’Never hesitate! Never hesitate’’ Her words came to life as the trembling cause inevitable nausea; thankfully she managed to keep her machine upright as she squished a few unlucky Warriors right as the MK.57 unleashed its payload, riddling her previous position of bullets that could very well be compared to artillery. ‘’10 minutes, not bad…’’Victor muttered.Do you…>[Continue with the imprint?]>[Say you’ve had enough?]>[Increase your intensity?]>Taking a little 20 minute break, back in a few.
>>24614026>>[Continue with the imprint?]Our mentor is going all out. Best time to imprint.
>>24614026>[Continue with the imprint]I'm honestly surprised she got lucky enough just to lose an arm there. Dancing your way around Forts is no joke either.
>>24614146>that gifIs that an AC? Which Armored Core is that? What is it fighting?
>>24614026>[Continue]Might as well see how far we can push this shit.Also, nuked my last post because it came right as you were posting and thus interrupted the flow of writing but yeah, to reiterate, you have successfully convinced me to sac what will likely be 2 weeks worth of free time to read/watch the core materials of this franchise. I hope you're happy about that.
>>24614222That's an Unreal Engine 3 MuvLuv Mod.In other words, that's a Fort-Class BETA.
>>24614222The monster is from muvluv, I'm guessing it's a mockup of a game that doesn't exist.
>>24614026>[Continue with the imprint?]Things seem to be going alright so far, for us at least.>>24614146>>24614222TSF forefront, it's an Unreal 3 mod I think. Coming near the end of the year hopefully.
>>24614286Oh, it exists. See here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=VtlMRLw9auk
>>24614271Thought so. Looked too much like a Fort to be anything but a fort. Also, since I'm still on Extra, how much rejoicing can I expect to get once I move on to Unlimited? I'm expecting a lot as from what I gathered a quote from Gig pretty much sums up this setting."Rivers of Blood! Mountains of Flesh! A glorious world of PAIN!"
>>24614403Extra is generic harem.Unlimited is harem in a more interesting setting.Alternative is two games worth of hype.
>>24614403No rejoicing at all they saved it all for the third game
>>24614403Unlimited is pretty much worldbuilding and light mecha porn, until the end, which is a bit meloncholy.Alternative is where dreams and waifus go to die.
>>24614444>>24614449>>24614450So the first 2 VN's are ok, and it's the third one where they really nailed it. Damn, it's gonna take me at least a week to get to the really good stuff it seems. Oh well, as I want to actually understand the good stuff I'll grin and bear it.Dear lord, it's just like when I first got into the Nasuverse. And it was this site that did that to me too! 4chan, it conspires to consume my free time.
>>24614556To be fair, there are certain routes in the first game you can skip or skim through. I'd really only advise doing the two main girls and anyone you really like. The 2nd game, just go for your fav girl and then jump into the third.
>>24614576I generally just tell people to go straight to Alt, I hated Extra.
>>24614590You are the worst kind of person.
>>24614612Hey, I suffered through all three, I just knew the guys I wanted to read Alt wouldn't manage. They still loved it, by the way, so there's that.
>>24614590But the bonus route in Extra! Marimo end is best end.
>>24614612Look at his name. He picked it for a reason. He lives to REJOICE!I can respect that. Though for me, I'd have to go with Kerry. That guy, he understood.
>>24614643It's like starting with Return of the King, sure you get to all the cool stuff right away, but you miss so much character development, foreshadowing and world building.Finding images that aren't spoiler territory in my Muv-luv folder is harder than I though, I should stick to robot pictures.
>>24614708I know what you mean Raptor a shit
>>24614783OH HELL NO YOU DO NOT COME INTO THIS HOUSE AND INSULT THE GLORIOUS MOUNT OF AMERICAN HERO AND RECIPIENT OF THE AMERICAN ORDER OF AMERICA MAJOR ALFRED 'AMERICAN' WALKEN.Berkut is best TSF
>>24614783Takemis aren't that hot, either.
>>24614783I'll fight you.
>>24614783Just so you know, sabotage doesn't count against them.
>>24614826I got how 'Murrica is depicted in this series from the wiki. I would be mad, but given my history in Political Science... Yeah, yeah they pretty much got it right. If there's one thing that America is in the foreign policy department it's "being a dick/troll". And scrapping the mech that could have done great work within a hive for something more about taking out other TSF's? Dumbasses Couldn't even into Exterminatus correctly as well, how hard is it to fuck up PURGE EVERYTHING! Correct answer was G-bomb the planet's core to get an effect similar to a cyclonic torpedo..Kill the greater enemy first, geopolitics and shit can come after the Xenos are purged. Oye... I can't get mad because yes, that is exactly how it would go down.
She’s going all out.This is nothing more than a simulation but every one of them is taking it seriously, and its giving an incredibly tense atmosphere that makes you wonder if they’ll actually die, this is the very first time you see true Eishi in action and… and..Wow.Despite the defining sounds of the large bullets of the MK.57 exploding all around, Shigeko immediately went upward and rejoined with her units as they bypass the rest of the herd, not before the Field Commander liquefied the duo of Fort causing the loss of her arm and, just as quickly as it began, the deafening sound of rounds and thrusters quieted down to a constant background groan as every Eishi forged on and…Shigeko Susumu Takara, your mentor. Royal Guard of Imperial Japan and Storm Vanguard through and through, being in the thick of it… that’s not how you imagined it, to lose her left arm ten minute after infiltration is nightmarish but as you combed her over, she was not surprised. Then, finally, the effect of the imprint started to hit you in a much, much more intense and raw form then what you remember. Every single phenomenon that went through your mentor brain as she fought seemed to replicate in your head.How she moved, how her body manifested that will, the very electrical surge, the very emotions, every single piece of information was assimilated and forcefully injected in your person, as you remembered the fight, never once did she take out her swords despite the close proximity of the BETA, she fired with wild abandon yet aimed for the weakness of each class with pinpoint accuracy and even used kick and punches to kill some strains.Every single one of her thoughts invaded your brain at once.
>>24614948I have no issue with it, honestly. Walken is portrayed as unambiguously heroic, so it's not like the writers hate Americans, just American Foreign Policy, which I can totally understand.The Yamato Damaishii masturbation got a bit old, though.
‘’Grapplers to my right, Fort striking, two Grappler dead, too up, laser will kill me, Warriors behind me, Destroyers charging, wall behind me, three tanks to my left…’’All the while understanding and replicating the motion of her brain as she willed herself to movement, the imprint was so forceful that you started to cough and nervous spasms took your body by assault, thankfully not too violent, only your hands started trembling. You also started to hear something most peculiar; far away bells.Victor was too concentrated on the monitors to see you but, right now the TSM pilots had gathered in a circle and you see Shigeko handing out her guns.‘’You sure?’’Alfonso asks, to which your mentor replies.‘’Yeah, I’ll do better with my sword anyway’’The harsh sword of metal cutting wind resonates as she takes her sword.Do you…> [Continue your imprint]> [Stop]> [Increase your intensity]
>>24614984>The Yamato Damaishii masturbation got a bit old, though.As a Japanese, I take offense to this.
>>24615008> [Increase your intensity]ALL IN.>>24615015If it makes you feel better, I find nationalism distasteful in all forms, not only when coming from Nippon.
>>24614984>Walken is portrayed as unambiguously heroicAs expected of the best Muv-Luv.
>>24615008>[Continue your imprint]Let's keep this going.
>>24614948Forgot to add: Humanity, I have no faith in it.>>24614984Same here. Like I said, you and I, we think along similar lines. Not the same lines, but similar.>>24615015I somehow severely doubt the truth of this statement. We don't get many actual Japanese here, they tend to stay on 2ch. And even then, that one would visit /tg/, quite unlikely and yet I somehow hope you're being honest.
>>24615008> [Increase your intensity]This is probably going full retard but i can't stop.
>>24615008> [Increase your intensity]All in.
>>24615008> [Continue your imprint]Bells might not be a good sign, so I'd suggest against going all out.
>>24615087As a Japanese, what would make you think I'd be the slightest bit dishonest about my proud heritage?Yes, I'm joking. That's why I'm posting Tsukuyomi along with these statements.
>>24615008>[Increase Intensity]Y'know what? Fuck it, let's do this. Fry your own brains out Tohno Shiki syle you cute female esper. Ah, if only I could have seen you in what amounts to a plugsuit. But the despair this setting has to uphold... I have yet to experience it but calls me, orders me, to fuck myself in the bad way. DO IT FAGGOT!!!
>>24615015Do you think this Royal Guard (well past one) is full of Yamato Damashi?
>>24615181>>24615118>>24615114>>24615058Welp. It's been a fun quest, INH.
>>24615200Oh.Well her backstory will come soon enoughAlso, you people have no one to blame but yourselves for what'll happen next.
>>24615227Oh I know full good and well I picked the option that screamed "Ya done fucked yourself hard", but I couldn't help it. It is time to REJOICE!
>>24615183Well there is a reason she's no longer with the royal guards. Who knows?
>>24615227Rejoice, the time is coming...
If this is simulation…What in the world could the real deal be? You’ve concentrated so much on Shigeko, you’ve yet to really see any BETA or the action, only her thought, this is the only thing you can concentrate on to save you from a headache but if you don’t show some will, you’ll likely be sorry on the battlefield.You’ve got to have some guts, yes, you certainly want more of what she can offer, you really…Well she made an impression and you’d certainly like to know her more!--For 5 minutes, nothing happened.For 5 minutes, a squad of Typhoon barreling down into the hive at insane speed, you were quite lucky to not damage your thrusters in the melee; reality would have probably been a much crueler mistress but the Type-74 PB blade in your valid hand fills you with pride and anticipation.Having a Japanese blade on a European TSF took some serious getting used to but now that you’ve got it down to an art, you are much more satisfied with a one hander than the big BWS-3, especially in your current situation.‘’Hey Shi-‘’Unfortunately, Alexandrine words were cut off when the very ground, hell the entire tunnel, started trembling as if victim of a sudden earthquake.This simulation is truly a harsh mistress.The image appear on your head up display along with Adam somber face, he made a crude estimate of the rest of the tunnel with its entirety filled by bright pink spots representing the BETA.‘’That’s hundreds of thousands of them’’Alfonso soon speak, his goofy is a reassuring sight.‘’Probably a million’’Berenice add, her own face appearing with that constant peaceful half smile.‘’Jeez did he put it on Very Hard or something!?’’Of course, the last one to speak is Alexandrine but there is no time to waste, the rumbling continue incessantly but by now, the machines are handling it perfectly.‘’I’ll open up a path, you guys go on ahead’’
Classic scenario, your proposition is met with several grunts that are quickly deafened by the cascading aliens, finally thought, you let a smile spread on your face as, even if your death is impossible, the simulation is so thorough that you almost feel at home.Almost.You don’t even bother for a goodbye, your thrusters are around halfway full by now and you clutch your blade, remembering all those years of Kendo, fencing and study, especially on the Typhoon capabilities. It isn’t too great for a blender scenario but it’ll have to do.It’s time to Slice’n’Dice‘’Discontinue!’’Victor harsh voice resonate inside your module and the screen immediately goes dark and you almost let out a swear, but decide to fuel your frustration in getting out as quickly as possible, victor always proved himself reasonable, sharp and intelligent; there’s a reason for this and… You see him rushing out of the control room carrying the new recruit, your own cute little apprentice, in his arm. The girl is convulsing, crying and almost screaming as she hold her head, blood slowly dripping out of her nose, she’s out in a flash in the large man arms, not before you hear something that cold your hot-bloodedness.‘’Erroneous strike! A-aaa everyone dead in Kyotooo!’’For one instant, you remember the fire, blood and despair of that night when the capital fell. >Muvluv Alternative 03 end. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=aSWxwHXwCWw
>>24615917I told you about increasing intensity bro, I told you.
>>24615956My mind is ready.
>>24615917Oh yes all aboard the trauma train
>>24615917Awww, we broke her SAN meter and shoved her into SAN 0 territory. We broke someone else's brain when I thought we had fried our own. I can rejoice to this...My practical side returns Damn, she could have been useful on the field given her skills. Oh well, I hope we gained something from this sacrifice of an otherwise perfectly OK teammate/ally. We ripped her brain to shreds. So sad, but if it furthers our own ends it is acceptable. We did gain something from this episode right Chomp? Please tell me yes, I hate to expend a resource without getting anything in return.
>>24616044That's us in SAN 0 territory friend.
>>24616044Check your perspective, man. That's us with the mindfuck.
>>24616044If you gained something? Yes, of course...But right now I'm wondering if I should do a mc jump to Shigeko, or pursue with our esper.You dug your own tomb, rejoice!
>>24616077Keep going with our esper PTSD happy fun-time is GO
>>24616094Its a tad too soon for PTSD, right? You didn't even face the BETA! I'm going to have to hunt for picture of her crying now.
>>24616044Forgot muh pic!>>24616065>>24616069So what, I can rejoice either way. I knew what my choice would mean and I made it anyway. This setting, it is made of REJOICE!>>24616077That was intended. This wouldn't be MLA verse if the MC didn't hit SAN 0 at some point and be forced to burn fate to stay playable. Just hope we have more than one of those, an MC without a Fate Point to burn may as well be dead already.>>24616094CHOMP!!! I agree. PTSD mode is full go!
>>24616127Man i knew this was going to be bad for our MC but i couldn't help myself.
>>24616153>>246161273 episodes in and you've hurt the poor girl bad.What should I think, /tg/?
>>24616180That this quest is going places, bad places sure but man will it be fun.
>>24616199Too soon for PTSD!I've got to think of the repercussion, but little Ekaterina was too greedy today. Being an esper is suffering.
>>24616153Neither could I.>>24616180You chose to run a quest in a setting that is made of opportunities to REJOICE. It ought not surprise you that we play our role, the role of being the cruel cruel God that gets off on this sort of thing. Seriously, Uryuu would be doing pic related so much at these concepts. Hell, Takeru channeled him when he woke up in unlimited by my info. What in God's name did you expect?
>>24616180I think you're enjoying yourself.
>>24616257But the despair in muvluv is supposed to make you feel bad! I've got quite alot of things to think about for next session though, thank for that, poor Kat... >>24616261No sir.
>>24616305Oh trust me it does. I do feel bad for her, but hey, she essentially went into becoming an Eishi/Meguca with both eyes open. She plain and simply deserves all the despair she gets because of that. I do feel for the poor, poor esper. But then again, she DID bring this upon herself. Her and Hers are going to get CHOMP'd at some point, hope this episode teaches her at least a portion of that SAN wrecking fact.The human mind, it is remarkably adaptable. The first time you see CHOMP you lose it, the second time? Not as bad as the first. By the tenth time it becomes "Yeah, so what, fucking try me you BETA fucks. I've seen this movie too many times to be phased anymore. Really try me next time!"That rule in "Dark Heresy" really caught that. "Only the Insane Shall Prosper" I believe it was called. By the time you'd accumulated 80 SAN damage (a very bad thing, to be sure), nothing could really frighten you anymore. For what were the nightmares before you, compared to the nightmares you saw every time you closed you eyes!!!
Anyway I hope I'm capturing the universe well enough, I'm not planning character deaths quite yet but you can bet you'll have a nice debuff on your character sheet after today. I'm thinking of comring up with a very simple system once you guys start training properly, but I've got to come up with the proper repercussion of today.Let's hope Ekaterina isn't in a coma.
>>24616428I dunno working through this trauma in a coma dream would be kind of cool. As for the debuff can we overcome those?
>>24616305You're enthusiastically running a quest set in the Muv-Luv Alternative universe.This is something you wanted to do.You went into this knowing what a gold mine it is for DESPAIR.I'm pretty sure you're enjoying this on some level.
>>24616428Horray! A major derangement right off the bat! Hope it's a buff/debuff type deal. We go berserk on X trigger. Going berserk is all well and good, at the right time that is.Dear God, we might as well be playing AdEva. We Asuka/Shinji now...>>24616471Oh he is rejoicing so hard he's about to cream himself I can assure you. It's kind of his thing.
>>24616449Of course yo ucan, your biggest one is your recurrent nightmare that wreck your sleep pretty hard, and you'll gain another one after today.Along with a huge benefit, I'm trating this as a high reward/high injury type of situation.>>24616471N-no
>>24616497>Oh he is rejoicing so hard he's about to cream himself I can assure you. It's kind of his thing.Believe me, I'm well aware of this. Even if he won't admit it.
>>24616512>that image.if memory serves the American's in Muv Luv were the only faction who had their shit together and where actively trying to save the world and getting back up plans in place incase they failed. rather than the chinese and Russians who were just trying to undermine the americans because of reasons and Japan who couldn't pour piss out of a boot if the instructions were written on the heel.
>>24616512Well good. I like my debuffs to come with a buff of equal proportion. Everything ought be balanced in an odd sort of way. "You lose it whenever X happens, but you get X bonus to Z checks as compensation." I like that, closer to RL IMO. The paranoid suck in social situations, but if the shit hits the fan, said paranoid mofo with next to no friends is in a very good spot in regards to his own survival.>>24616529Glad to see someone besides me saw this part of his character...
>>24616420>She plain and simply deserves all the despair she gets because of that.I will fucking end you, man. Don't even play.
>>24616591>Glad to see someone besides me saw this part of his character...To be fair, I've known him before he ran any quests here so it's something I picked up on pretty early.
>>24616573America is the world armory.Its Alternative V supporters that ruin everything for everyone.Along with the CIAAnd this douche.
>>24616620If only Walken had become president, the BETA would have been defeated in weeks.
>>24616512Just admit it. You won't be satisfied until your entire cast and a good portion of the readership are making this expression.
>>24616634Oh good, I came to the right place. It's an MLA quest, if he didn't cause that it would be a failure.
>>24616620>Fagiri>AmericaThat... Could've used better clarification.
>>24616634 Maybe I've got to try and make sure you guys come to like those Eishi first and foremost tough. >>24616632He need a better choice of underlings
>>24616592Nobody makes you read the books in CoC, nobody really made her want to be an Eishi. She chose it. She read that which man was not meant to read. She chose a path no sane person would ever choose if they could help it. She chose to walk with death, she chose to court insanity. That has rather harsh consequences. She got a taste of that today. Better she get it now, than in the mists of battle where it could suddenly end her. Better to hit the single digits of SAN now, so we get a buffer that keeps it from happening in the middle of our defense of that base or that invasion of that OP hive I just know we'll be a part of if we live long enough...
>>24616691Or he could use the CIA not fucking him over.
>>24616712Just like we chose to immerse ourselves in Muv-Luv, right?I'm not following your conclusions here.
>>24616716Lots of people could use alot of things
>>24616770She could certainly use someone who would break her.
>>24616811Christmas time is here....
>>24616737I'm saying that, if you're in a setting that is inclined to make you lose your shit, it's better you lose it sooner rather than later. The sooner you lose it, the sooner you get used/immune to that sort of thing. That's a good thing, despite the fact it is also a most horrible, terrifying, and most undesirable thing.Mind of steel people. Insanity can pull you out of things that ought to have ended you in one way or another. I say, we lose it now. Fuck our ability to socialize, lets make her into an unbreakable soul. A soul that, because of that nature, is doomed to be alone forevermore, crying eternally in a tomb of loneliness and despair, praying for someone to understand that will never come....
>>24616840Sounds almost fatalistic to me, the complete opposite of the point of Muv-Luv.It just doesn't befit a tale of love and courage.
>>24616822Let's hope you can help Al IV completion...
>>24616857A soul broken and bent into exactly the tool needed for humanity's survival, however, a tool that can make her death count, that will live on in the memory of her friends and loved ones...
>>24616879And that's the point. It inspires hope and determination in others, it gives others the strength to carry on where the ones who have passed on left off.The essence of Muv-Luv is not about death, but life.
>>24616857Ah, but if someone who *could* understand her came around, one who kept trying to reach her no matter how hard she pushed him away... would not that count as worthy of a tale of love and courage?>>24616865If we can't, I hope we can at least ensure that ALT V gets done right. Pic Related. That's how it ought to have went down, but 'Murrica was too dumb to do it right.
>>24616926Exactly. And sometimes the most meaningful thing you can do in life is choose how you die. You know, catharsis, and all that.
>>24616944It's gonna a lot of Exterminatus if you want to completely remove the BETA threat.If you thought Earth was bad, check out our moon and Mars as well sometime. And that's still not even half of the BETA's numbers.
>>24617026Also, part of the point of Alt V was to leave something for the US to rule, so they wouldnt do the full thing anyway.
>>24616944Thing is, Alt V wasn'T really about exterminating earth.It was about G-bombing everything that wasn't murica.>>24616996What if you become such a good pilot you can't die?
>>24617026>It's gonna *TAKE* a lot of ExterminatusFuck me.
>>24617057>What if you become such a good pilot you can't die?Wait, he's joking, right? I need to gauge just how hard I should laugh at this.Come on. You know better than that.
>>24617057Literally no such thing. Its a useless question, this isn't Gundam.
>>24617026Hey, all you need is enough Cyclonic Torpedo equivalents and all is well. Technically...>>24617047Again I say, those fucking morons. If you want to purge the Xenos filth, you go all the fucking way. Purge it all, PURGE EVERYTHING!>>24617057And that I say, is why they failed. All must burn, all must die. If you have lived long enough in this world you will come to understand one fact, you cannot have your cake and eat it too. Nothing is ever "free", all has its price. If you don't pay up, you won't get what you want.
>>24617100>>24617087Maybe it'l ldepend on who you Noble Confidant
>>24617124>Hey, all you need is enough Cyclonic Torpedo equivalents and all is well. Technically...Hope you like having to come up with new strategies and stronger weapons every time you launch a successful one on the BETA, friend.Don't underestimate their ability to adapt.
>>24617139That... I could never do that to another woman. To friendzone them that hard... No, I'd just reject them outright. What he did to her, that was just too cruel.
>>24617139Nah, no Mary Sues here man, I will be personally disappointed with a mortality rate under 90% by the end of this thing.
>>24617139So we need to get with the right girl in order to achieve the best possible ending, right?
>>24617164Hard to adapt to killing everything on the planet, cracking its crust like an egg, and burning its atmosphere within the span of a few minutes. Honestly, there is a limit to these things. They ain't nanomachine colonies dude.
>>24617194Actually, one of the prevalent theories is that the BETA are, in fact, biological nanomachines.
>>24617165>>24617179Is Ekaterine into girls? >>24617175Allow me to make you care about those Eishi before they die, good priest.
>>24617219>EkaterineEkaterina. Sorry about that.
>>24617194When the BETA start pulling Triple- and Quad-Laser class as well as gigantic BETA that can sink floors out of their ass, I stop questioning the extent to which BETA can adapt to threats.They actually kind of ARE nanomachine colonies, though.
>>24617219Couldn't rejoice otherwise, friend. I'm just here for the yuetsu.
>>24617219Well, now, that's up to us, isn't it?
>>24617264Are we still on /tg/Yes?She's a lesbian. It was decided the moment you decided we'd play a girl.
>>24617219>>24617264To be honest I'd like to keep her straight. If only to defy the trend of /tg/ to make every female Protagonist Bi/Lesbian. I may be a dude, but I want to defy the norms when I can. She's plain straight in my head, or at least, I'd like her to be.>>24617236But not really. They're kind of like the Nid's from what I gather. The Nids could never adapt to Exterminatus, so I doubt the baiters can.
>>24617282Was kind of my point.
>>24617282>>24617264...so you'll aim for your mentor?>>24617285I can play either way, at least sex isn't exactly important for MLA, but your romantic partner most certainly is.
>>24617358Personally, I don't really into waifuing on quests. I'll leave it to the others.
>>24617264>>24617282>>24617321You people... Am I the only one here who kills his need to pop a boner when considering the path of being in character? I mean, I love that as much as anyone but still, I want to see us do something different for once.>Captcha: ennvng rejoicethYeah, I would rejoice to that captcha. Too bad it ain't bloodly likely to happen.>>24617358How many potential choices we got?
>>24617285>But not really. They're kind of like the Nid's from what I gather. The Nids could never adapt to Exterminatus, so I doubt the baiters can.I'm telling you now, that G element is some pretty crazy shit. It's like MacGuffinite. If we can use it to create giant robots and miscellaneous anti-BETA gizmos, what do you think the BETA themselves can do with it?
>>24617376I was observing a fact, not making a declaration of intent. I literally could care less.
>>24617358>Sex isn't exactly important for MLATell that to Takeru and S00mika. Hell, it plays some kind of important underlying role in the whole universe. Most of the reason Takeru kept looping was because he was fucking the wrong girl.
>>24617376I was just joking around.
>>24617376>How many potential choices we got?Not too sure myself, I think it'll depend more on who you choose to interact with, of course its not everyone thaT's a lesbian and given that you Field commander is pretty old and grizzled...Probably one girl and one dude (the italian)>>24617396I'll try not to bore you with romance, but I can't escape, it goes hands in hands with muvluv after all.
>>24617476>1 girlWhy not Shigeko and/or Mirabelle?
>>24617476Psh, don't cater to me. I like romance, I just dont really care to participate in the inevitable waifu wars. You do what you have to, I'll enjoy myself just fine.
>>24617522I wonder how massive the shitstorm will be when one of the girls eventually dies a horrible death.
>>24617522Same here, I just hope the consensus is a husbando because well, that would be a refreshing change of pace for me. /tg/ has made enough Lesbians, time for the fem protag to receive the Descartes instead of eat a fish taco.>>24617562Oh they will, this is the kind of setting where nobody is safe from the reaper.
>>24617562>one of the girls>oneOh, you poor, deluded bastard.
>>24617514Well given your choice of mentors you'll be talking with her to level up more often then others. Alexandrine is a bit... special. >>24617522I've been running MGQ for a good while and there hasn't been any waifu wars that I can think of, probably becasue I okay'd the harem.This won't happen here, if too muc hwaifiums happen I'll shift into TSF porn.
>>24617584Not to be a downer or anything, but did you forget the shitstorm caused by Bletsia?
>>24617578Hey, at least one person has to die first before everyone else starts dropping. I know what the hell I'm talking about.
>>24617620You ever seen a Fort-Class send a tendril through three TSFs son?
>>24617610No I didn't and I learnt from it but I don't think the backlash was due to waifuism per say, more of a ''YOU LOSE'' situation happening while everyone was convinced it was a joke update.
>>24617584Still quite unsure how we'll be able to swing that long term. A woman's instincts are to make one man hers and hers alone after all. Probably evolutionary, A girl wants that man to KNOW that this kid is his and that he ought to stick around to ensure the continuation of his genes after all. Much easier to raise said kid if everyone's on the same page and I'm quite sad to say we haven't evolved much since those days. At base, man is still the same being he was back in the "stone age" mentally. Tech has improved, but the people who operate it have not. A true tragedy.>>24617610Let's not open that can of worms. I'm actually wondering what her spell of "Fuck You All I Am A Wizard With a Broken Little Girl. Suck This Chief God!" spell will be like. I don't think I'll like the outcome, but hey, DL is a caster with time. Always wanted to see what BS they could pull if given the prep time.>>24617640Nope, but I imagine it involves Gore, and lots of it.
>>24617640No, but I've seen them run it through individual TSFs.One would say it reduced me to a puddle of horrible feels.
>>24617698And yet the penis is shaped to scrape out the semen of other males from the female's vagina. What marvels of nature we are.
>>24617837>>24617698Well this took an interesting turn
>>24617837What a disgustingly interesting fact.
>>24617927Oh, hey, Inferno Cop. Awesome.
>>24617837Well there's always gotta be a "Plan B" dude.Plan A is monogamy, enforced by the woman of course because fuck, if you could swing a harem end you know you would.Plan B is be the last dude to bone the slut as you pray your dick is bigger than and thine Kegles are stronger than the rest of em'. Plan B isn't as good as A, but it has a chance. Thus, we evolved with it in mind.
I do hope you guys will be happy with a Typhoon.Europe make some fine, fine machines.
>>24618097A choice of machines would be nice, but the Typhoon is a fine TSF. I always liked the Russian designs, for TSFs and Aircraft both.
>>24618132I'm still on the fence about a choice, give nthe fact that TSF from different nations handle differently it might be best to have everyone in the squad piloting the same thing for consistency sake.I'll think of a possibility for actually choosing one, you'll have to work for it that's for sure.
>>24618097Would have preferred the Black Widow, too bad 'Murrica Mothballed that machine like a bunch of morons. Oye, that thing might have turned the tide but noooooo, let's backstab everyone instead!
>>24617649And now you'll lure us in with an incredibly good event that makes everybody happy then immediately follow it up with soul-crushing despair.I will not be satisfied until this condition is met.I also wrote a much better-worded version of all of this, then the posting somehow fucked up on me and it got lost in the ether. So I had to rewrite what I originally said, but from an exhausted mind that barely remembers the finer details of my original post. Don't you just hate when that happens?
>>24618176Takemis are still shit, you know.
>>24618196You'll get what you want anon. If there's one thing this GM can deliver on, it's despair. At least, that's what I've gathered from my time with him.
>>24618196If I don't pull a situation like that, I'll have failed as a QM for MLA. The fact that words can be lsot on 4chan easily is the reason why I always write up my updates on a proper text program, its probably why I'm so wordly
>>24618230>Takemi>ShitI don't see your inferior machine saving the world
>>24618300Do we really have to go through this song and dance again?I'm also pretty sure "wordly" isn't a word.
