You ask the unfamiliar voice currently purring in your ear the basics - namely, who the hell they thought they were, what's it going to take for them to fuck off, and just what the fuck did they do to one of your snipers. All while still making the high-class representative of one of the biggest yakuzas in Japan continue to kowtow to the wall with one hand, while the other aimed a Golden Desert Eagle at one of his kneecaps."In due time, Murderer." The voice is whispery, almost hissing each syllable. "Let's talk a bit more before we start exchanging personal details. Although, I suppose I do have the advantage here." A breathy giggle. "Tell me first, though - did you enjoy the gifts I left for you? I made sure you'd appreciate them."Your eyes narrow at this. So she's owning up to sending you that package, then? And that surprise your convoy nearly ran over on the way here? That was all her, too?
>>27397076YesssssFirst time I've ever seen the thread as only the OP
>>27397076"Guilty as charged, I'm afraid." Another giggle, this time terminating into a sigh. "It was quite fun, to be honest. - making the girl look like your precious Tomoe Mami. I treated it like an art project, you know. A splash of color here, some careful embroidery to get the details right...and, of course, a few choice cuts here and there to make things neat and tidy." Mine trashes in your grip, here, nearly dislodging you - and you absently slam him against the wall again to make him stop. He does so well enough, his forehead impacting against brushed steel with a gong-like sound, and he falls limp in your grasp with a groan.You reply just as you let go of Mine, allowing the yakuza representative to fall in a boneless heap on the dusty floor. Is it at all reasonable, then, that you're talking to the Prophet?"...How did you...?" The voice seems surprised, but recovers quickly enough. "...No. As flattering as it may be, I am not The One Who Sees The Ten Thousand Futures. She is pure, and has yet to stain her hands with innocent blood. We do it for her instead, as her vanguard. Willingly and wholeheartedly, we will shed blood in her name, to protect her and this world from you."...It sounds like you're up against another nutjob, here. Someone who gets off on murder like it's some sort of fetish, or something. Bringing to mind another psycho that cut your arm off and then got reduced to hamburger immediately afterwards a few lifetimes ago.How do you respond?
>>27397097>How do you respond?"You still haven't answered the 3 questions I asked you first."
>>27397097[x] Why so caught up in yourself, anyway? While flattering, it does seem a bit much, all these fancy mystical titles and senseless murders - which, by the way, are somewhat undermining any effect her little nickname for you might possibly have.
>>27397097[X] "If you're trying to get on my shit list, you have succeeded. You have something that belongs to me. I want it back. "Don't die, Osaka!
>>27397097[x]"..I see. Does this precious One Who Sees approve of you murdering innocent girls so you can have petty grudge matches? Or is bloodshed fine with her as long as she's not the one doing it?"This mook may have given us some info here. If the underlings are doing things on their own initiative, maybe we could take advantage of this later.
>>27397097"Are you going to tell me your name then or should I refer you as "The Prophet's fanclub"? Also if you want to protect the world and your Prophet, why didn't you try killing Kharn first? That's the biggest threat to any female on the planet, especially blondes."
>>27397097[X] "Your presents were anything but neat and tidy, to much blood and the poor girl's hair wasn't even dyed properly.""I want my subordinate's Soul gem back, intact."
So, when she says the prophet is innocent, do they mean 'hasn't killed anyone (innocent) herself...but knows about all the stuff we do in their name' or 'she's completely clueless'. Actually, considering the wording...she might not be a meguca at all (yet). Even regular MGs in non-insane officios are gonna spill the blood of innocents once in a while.
>>27397097Be honest here, "You must have some serious fetish for a dramatic flair because you went to all this trouble just to call me with a hostage. I don't care if you're the fucking blessed lady herself, right now I'm on a god damn job, so why don't you put my sniper's soul gem back up her ass where it should be and then we can talk like civilized people at a neutral meeting ground of your choice. You can even pick a god damn barrier, I don't know who the hell you are, but you seem to know a little about me, as such you'd know I am a bit new on the job and I don't want my reputation turned to shit because some 2-bit meguca who think she amounts to more than a stain on my boot wants to make a statement to me. If you're in the stadium right now, fantastic, lets sort this out here and now so I can get back to work dealing with real nightmares, like Idols."
>>27397097Another whack-job to tango with. I'd had some hope she was just ruthless but rational after last thread, but diplomacy probably won't work that well now.
>>27397076>[x] Why must the world be protected from me exactly? I mean, sure I murder people for a living, but there are many people that do so....I still want to know who you are and what you want from this whole thing.
>>27397097[x] "Your beloved Prophet wouldn't need protecting if you hadn't threatened Mami's safety. Tell you what, let's make a trade. My subordinate's Soul Gem, intact, for the identity of my source."
>>27397159Could be a Nanoha's A's kind of situation.
For all the precautions and paranoia surrounding his presence, Mine sure didn't end up very relevant to shit going down. Guess we really are our own worst enemies.
>>27397233Red herring antagonist?
>>27397226That would really kick the hornet's nest.>Who told you of the Prophet>The Blessed Lady>Yeah nah fuck you and your lies>No man I'm telling the truth. Did you know she lives in my time-stop world?And then in-fighting because The Blessed Lady works with the heretics
>>27397236Well, he's still an antagonist, just maybe overestimated his ambition/foolhardy courage a bit.Though it's too early to let our guard down, don't want to deal with the fanatics to find Ruri gone and a 'got you suckers' note from him instead.
>>27397226Haha, this would be awesome. Sadly, I doubt they'd agree since, yeah, that sounds like an obvious lie (and it's not like there's anything to stop Chiaki from lying either).
>>27397076[x]"Well, ok. Could you tell me why exactly you think I want to kill your prophet? And how exactly taking my subordinates hostage is supposed to stop me from doing that? You're not exactly helping your boss out by pissing me off, you know." Leave mine, get out into the open and rendevous with the others.
>>27397270this.theres literally no reason why the fuck we would kill someone unless someone needs a killing.also i bet these retards are probably talking bout kirika and shit and that fucking oriko is said prophet.
>>27397316Could very well be the case. I'm still hoping there's a way to keep Oriko from getting involved with MGs and stuff, but...
>>27397226>>27397252Yeah, I'm kinda liking this, but I really think this would make her furious.
>>27397334Oriko makes sense if she keeps her canon set. She has a motive and was a civilian until recently so it would fit with the "No innocent blood" comment
>>27397270>>27397097[x] This is the best resonse.
>>27397097[x] Keep her talking; She took the position of one of our snipers, that gives us the advantage. Time stop and run to every spot we had covered.
>>27397366Maybe, but by the time we tell her, everyone will be in the stadium's backstage (Because who the fuck says what the bad guy wants to hear before they get the hostages safe)
>>27397375The fact that she fits so well is one of the reasons it feels iffy to me, too easy so to speak.However, I do think that if we don't get any answers in the course of cleaning things up here, paying Kirika a visit might be in order afterwards (somewhere isolated of course).
>>27397424Actually, did she?Ayumu was coming back to her position after taking out the limo; she could have been captured on her way back, when she was out of position and not watched by any of the others.
>>27397495So it's our fault. That's good. We don't have to discipline anyone.
>>27397495This actually makes perfect sense. I'm still worried for Osaka. Don't die, Osaka!
>>27397495>>27397511to be fair, all she had to do was shoot the tires and instead she turned it in to Swiss cheese.
>>27397525To be fair to Ayumu, she still only took 4 shots; she's a Vindicare, so her 4 shots were more like RPG's than .50 cal shots. The state of the limo doesn't have relevance to the fact that she had to get out of position in order to make the shots.
>>27397540Maybe she just used explosive rounds. Makes lotsa holes with just 4 rounds in a civilian car...
>>27397551>in a civilian car...I'm fairly sure that it was an armoured limousine, though I haven't gone back in the archives to check.I am under the impression that Ayumu used some of her Vindicare magic rather than just mundane ammunition (explosive or AP).

>>27397703>>27397714YOU HAD ONE JOB
>>273977142 MINUTES INTERVAL.12 10 SEC UPDATES.WHY
>>27397125 >>27397144 >>27397140You growl out your reply just as you stalk out of Mine's impromptu interrogation room, gesturing towards Mine with the Golden Desert Eagle as you pass by the security detail waiting outside. She does love to hear herself talk, doesn't she? Does she get off on being overly theatrical, or is overacting horribly something she wished for instead?"...Charming, Murderer. Exactly what I expected of you. Absolutely no appreciation for drama, for the beautiful sadness of the moment. I believe that, besides the boon of ridding the world of its most despicable peril, I will also be providing society at large an extremely valuable service by killing you. Society ill needs a Magical Girl with no affectation for the finer things, much less a Warmaster."Ignoring the obvious bait, you remind her that for all the talking she's been doing, she hasn't yet finished answering all your questions. If she's looking for this conversation to get any further, then she'll need to give you something more than titles and cryptic bullshit. Hell, if you needed any more of that, then you'd just fiddle with your phone's diary app for a bit."...It always makes me die a little bit, inside, knowing that you're the kind of shit I have to deal with, in order to protect her." And just like that, the dignified accent and the lyrical vocabulary is gone, like a switch flipped. "The name is Lucius, Chiaki Matsuda. Now you know the name the Prophet gave me, and the name of the one who will bring you to justice."Lucius? So, like Lucy, then? Or does she sleep with a lot of people?"I don't--" The reply is barked, almost snarled, before it's cut off. "...No. Lucius. Say it properly. I know you have a hard time with that unrefined tongue of yours, but please do make the effort to."Fine. Whatever. Now, what will it take for her to give you back your sniper's Soul Gem and then fuck off to whatever hole she came from?[1/2]
>>27397779>LuciusAh hell, killing her is going to be a bitch
>>27397818Better her than Typhus
>>27397828Im expecting typhus to be a girl from KEY, i can feel it
>>27397821Lucius the Eternal, Champion of SlaaneshIf you somehow manage to kill him and find any sort of enjoyment from the act you turn into him
>>27397779"...This isn't really the time for you to make demands, you realize?" She sighs, the exhalation of air ruined with static. "But very well, here are my terms, if you want your underling's Soul Gem that badly. Stand your security detail down - and when I say that, I mean your Vindicare Squad AND the foolish little Callidus you've got bumbling around - and come to the pitcher's mound at the stadium's baseball diamond. Alone, please. And once I confirm this, I will approach you myself and make the exchange personally."You very nearly laugh at this. Is...is this bitch serious? Does she think you're that stupid, to fall for a setup like that?"Please. Such bald-faced deception is expected more from your ilk." A cackle. "No, no, Matsuda. I will grudgingly admit that you've been prudent with this concert's security. Predictable, but prudent. Your little sniper put up quite a fight, too - she killed one of my squad before I could execute the killing blow." She sighs, here. "Poor Amelia. And she was so confident, so full of herself."Lucius clears her throat. "In any case, Matsuda. I have allowed what's left of my strike team - the strike team I had planned to attack your client with, to humiliate you in front of the entire world by executing your client in mid-song - to mingle with the crowd. At the moment, they are untransformed. Upon my signal, they will transform and self-destruct their Soul Gems - and you know full well the kind of damage that can cause. Whether I give the signal or not depends on you, Matsuda."The fuck. If she's got walking time bombs in the crowd, then why doesn't she just go ahead with it, then? Why go through all this trouble?"Because this is my Plan B, Matsuda." The smile in Lucius' voice is almost palpable. "Single, honorable combat. You and me. With the entire world watching - and to a rather catchy tune, at that."[2/3]
This bitch sounds dumb. Or is this some sort of plan to see what golden weapons we have..?
>>27397888...So she's a fan, then?"Oh, of course." Lucius laughs. "I have a shrine of her in my quarters. And yes, I accepted this assignment knowing full well I'd have to end her career myself. But I took comfort in the fact that artists such as herself are only truly appreciated once they've been murdered."That's...hnh. Well. You can't argue with that."Quite. But enough of that. Those are my terms, Matsuda. Ten minutes from now, Ruri-sama will sing my favorite song - Waltz of the Spider Lilies. You should be at the pitcher's mound, alone, the moment the first stanza leaves her lips. Or I will give the signal." A moment. "Oh, and I assume you're smart enough to realize that I will also give the signal if you try to evacuate the premises with your client. She may escape this unscathed, but her fans - and her reputation - certainly won't."The well-spoken murderer giggles one last time. "I look forward to killing you, Chiaki Matsuda." You then hear the tell-tale click of someone switching off from the frequency."...Jesus Christ, she's just as annoying as Kirika." You hear Sayaka suddenly spit, her voice full of venom. "It's a trap, Murderface. Another one. Don't tell me you're stupid enough to fall for it."What do you do?
>>27397888I really really want to go and get the golden sword and stick the pig stick in her.
>>27397842>>27397858ohwellwe better get the fucking hat purified then huhand maybe see about digging up a tzeentchian artefact or something
>>27397915"The bear that sees the trap, cannot be caught."
>Upon my signal, they will transform and self-destruct their Soul GemsMagical girl suicide bombers.Sweet mother of mercy.
The only problem I see is that if we win..they can still kill themselves. Though it's tempting to murder her in a duel.
>>27397915[x] Call Kyuubey, tell him to get on the horn with the other Incubators, and get them all to remote-control any of their girls at the concert and make them leave, now.[x] Then, timestop, and ask Pinky for help. We'll owe her a favour, of course. A candlelit dinner, perhaps?
>>27397888>Single, honorable combat>With a VindicareYou lost meMy only question is whether we pound her into paste with cute bangle's help or convince Kirika to help us bisect her with a single vertical slash.
>>27397915"See about getting some of our squad to un-transform and wander the crowd looking for the bitches. Sayaka you stay near the client and keep her protected. I'm going to ring up QB and notify him of what's up"
>>27397956I believe that can count as an evac order.. megucas make up a large chunk of the audience.
>>27397915[x] "It's a trap, but the alternative is to have an unknown number of Magical Girls witch out in the middle of this stadium. And I heard from the Yak that even the 10th said 'fuck this shit, we're out'. If even the 10th doesn't want to deal with this, then it's real, and I can't ignore it."I have to go along with it, for now."We have to go along with it for now; multiple, stacked Witch Barriers that can be activated in less than 30 seconds (going by how fast Jyuubei was able to force a Soul Gem to self-destruct)? Sayaka wouldn't be able to get Ruri halfway out of the stadium before getting caught in all the Barriers.At least we have Yuu and the Golden Deagle as aces for this fight.
>>27397915Shit. I wanted to see if we could get our culexus down to shut the girls down but a biker chick in full regalia will be instantly recognisable and i'm not even sure if she can shut down so many across such a wide area.I think we need the golden katana for this.
>>27397915[x] SCRAMBLE OUR FUCKING RADIO WAVELENGTH. seriously we need a new channel if we are going to talk, she's got one of our own security headsets.
Hey guys..guys.. What if..We >pull a timestop>take a bomb>bury it on/at/in the place where she wants us to meet>resume time>meet her>time stop>detonate>????>profit!
Being proactive on this one might hurt. Don't forget she most likely has access to our channels too.Maybe we should just go with the flow
>>27397972She said not to evac Ruri or ourself, which we have no intention of doing.Pulling the off-duty megucas out filters out non-hostile soul gems; any left can simply be sniped at Enishi's direction.
>>27397915[X] "What would you have me do then? get hundreds of innocent fans killed?"having this spill out to the audience is not something we want.
>>27397915[x] "Of course I am, but not quite dumb enough to follow all her directions. No way is she planning for 'honorable combat' - even if she was that overconfident, there's no way she'd give me enough credit to think I fight fair. I'm coming backstage now, we'll discuss strategy on the way. 10 minutes is a lot of time, after all."Okay I'm thinking, since the MGs don't need to have bodies to be exploded, it's gonna be hard to think up any way to prevent them from 'sploding if she decides she wants them to go boom. Unless we can figure out a way to reliably identify them all in <10 minutes and smash their gems.
At first I was confused and wondering if soulgem self-destruction was even a thing, but then I remembered that's what Kyouko killed Sayaka's witch with in canon. Yeah, let's try to avoid that happening several times over in a packed fucking stadium.
>>27397915[x] Call Kyubei.How fast can he get us Kirika's sword or Khan's axes?
>>27397972>I believe that can count as an evac orderI concur.Even if it's not a general evac for most of the civilians, there's enough Magical Girls, with detectable magical signatures, that such a large movement would be discernible. Too likely for Lucius to be able to notice it, and for her to tell her MG's to witch out.
>>27397915[x]"Are you for real? You.. This.. This whole plan relies on your hope that for some reason I give a shit about a girl who got herself bested by a 3rd Rate Magical Girl like you and that I care about the what happens to all the shiteaters in the audience? You actually think, that the real Ruri is still up on the stage while I am satlling you by talking to you? That you are actually still in control? Dont you even know how I am? I have killed three dozens of people like you just because you mocked Tomoe Mami and you think that killing you is the worst I have to offer you and the rest of the girls?"[x] Intimidate/Bluff the shit out of her.
>>27397982[X] I agree with this. Make contingency plans for an evacuation, but don't cause a panic. Play along and fight this girl.
>>27398000She's only managed to intercept one of our Vindicares as opposed to the whole damn squad. It'd be prudent to switch to another frequency though, if Chiaki/ Kyosuke had made any contigencies for that.
>>27397982And, perhaps, if we're lucky, a wild card.This doesn't really seem like Wendy's type of crowd after all (though who knows).
>>27397915>[x] Do you REALLY think I have a choice here? Or do you want me to go the Kharn path. Anyway, I have the most bullshit power ever, It's not even fair really. And crazy performance enhancing weapons. I'll go and kill this bitch.We gon kill ourselves a hoe
>>27398022shes off the line.>>27398015Call him at least. Find out our options since im sure he can transport them.
One thing we could do...Our first job as Warmaster deserves a massive display of force, doesn't it?After all, this mission will set the tone of the rest of our reign.What if we call in literally our entire Officio?This warrants it, we now have a whole stadium of innocents at stake.If she blows up her magical girls, we have an entire army of professional Witch-hunters to shut them down in record time.
>>27398015We can get them ourself instantly simply by pulling them from the shield.
>>27397915Find Wendy, sic on terrorists. Americans hate terrorists.
>>27398039It'll take longer than 10 minutes for them to come here, and while we've been burned overestimating our opponents in the past, isn't it reasonable to expect her to have at least one MG watching the QB Industries Tower for any kind of massive deployment like you suggest?
>>27398047We already have Yuu on our wrists; On top of the Golden Bangles not making us go batshit insane like Kirika's blade or Kharn's Chainaxes.
>>27398036Ah, crap, missread that sentence about her going off the line.
>>27398047Not sure if the roulette will work and spit out what we want.Worth a try though.Time to FLESH OF FALLEN ANGELS
>>27398057They'll Liberate the shit out of them so hard we'll be stuck in a geurilla war with them for the next 10 years
>>27398014This. They're not Witch Bombs. Kyubey's grief bomb merely made Mirai and Chiaki Witch out while opening a stacked barrier. Bad, but not unsolvable. She's threatening to do what Kyouko did to Oktavia. Could basically kill everything in the stadium. It's not Ayumu who's a hostage anymore, but the entire concert.
>>27398057>Americans hate terrorists.I have one better:Call First Officio, sic the First on Rogue Magical Girls.If there's one thing the Incubators hate, it's their little Meguca's going rogue.
>>27398039That doesn't solve much but get our own girls killed since when such a huge force shows up, it'll be instantly clear what happened and they can't kill all of them that fast before they detonate.
>>27398014>>27398081Yeah. We really need to get Kyuubey on the horn for this one. (Without Lucius tapping into our line, that is.) The least we could do is give him the courtesy of knowing that things have gone FUBAR.
>>27398057I don't think letting wendy go at it with people related to Lucius is a good idea.There's that bit where you become him if you take pleasure in killing him. The rabbits are a bit too sadistic to do it and get away clean.
Timestop. Give Pinky our best. Steal all the Soulgems. Give Pink our promise to come back soon. Pinky promise. Ha ha.Show up at the ambush with the soulgems of a dozen rouge magical girls. Show Lucy what messing with Muderface really means.
>>27397915[x]"I don't know where one digs up so many meguca willing to kill themselves, but I'm not willing to risk assuming it's a bluff." Then, switch fucking frequencies. After that, we might consider trying a bait and switch. When everyone goes backstage before the main song, we can get Enishi to use some Callidus ability to make us and Sayaka switch places. Then have Sayaka fighter her on the field and we can stay off to the side and snipe if anything goes wrong.
The only other viable option I can think of is to find a good vantage point, let them go through with it, and shoot everyone who seems like they might be about to transform. But the odds of f pulling that off are probably minimal
>>27398127Lucius knows of Enishi's involvement though, and may have countermeasures set up for that.Of course, she'd be crazy-fucking-prepared if she had something like that at all.Did we ever know if there was a mole in the security team?
>>27398159There's always a mole in the security team.And if you find the mole, then that was bait to make you think you found the mole and relax your guard.
>>27398159>Did we ever know if there was a mole in the security team?Has Neco been posting?
>>27398159have you noticed NECO's mysterious disappearance?
>>27398186Not for a while, no.
>>27398191Eh, but if she operates on in-universe real time, it's only been a few minutes, hasn't it? She could just be watching the concert.
>>27398170Then that would make switching frequencies useless, unless only Kyosuke knows what it is.Inb4 Shadowruns saying Kyosuke is the mole.>>27398186>>27398191If that's true, we're chewing Sayaka out once this shit is over with.Alternatively, Lucius nabbed her and extracted said info.
We've got magical girl assets in the crowd, can we use them to help mitigate the explosions?Alternately, jam all communications so they can't give a kill order. That's the other plan. Now, if I was her, I'd just have rigged the pitcher's mound with explosives. Single honourable combat with sufficient high explosives enough to kill/incapacitate. [x] Call Kyubey. We've got suicide magical girls ready to explode, should we exfiltrate the client and our people, and forget the reputation and her fans, or do we make an attempt to save everyone?We don't really care about the fans that much. Our sniper's a write-off for now. Mainly is the issue worth risking OUR magical girls and the client? That's the bosses call.
Okay, let's rationalize this. Obviously, the whole 'protecting the prophet' thing she claims to be all about isn't her real motivation, because even this plan alone is a terrible way of going about it, but her original one - killing Ruri to make Chiaki look bad - and making the Mami look-a-likes are both about a thousand times dumber in that case. At least this current one might kill Chiaki instead of just enrage her. And yet, doing it for 'the prophet', and her general but unexplained hatred, is about all we've gotten out of her so far. Finding out who she is/why she's got it in for Chiaki is probably going to help a lot in working out way through this.If this is Oriko, I've got no idea who the prophet might turn out to be. Unless this is a 'the prophet is Mami that's why they'll 'kill' Mami because she won't be Mami any more, see, hyuk hyuk aren't we good we've got more riddles coming up just wait' kind of situation. But you'd think Chiaki might remember Oriko's voice, and I don't see why she'd bother hiding her name/identity. But I also can't think of anyone else who'd have it in for Chiaki this bad. So...someone from Murderface era maybe? In which case there's not much thinking and reasoning we can do to find out where they're coming from.
>>27398228Oriko is the prophet; this girl is neither.
>>27398217>We've got magical girl assets in the crowdThey're not necessarily our assets.And no, they can't mitigate the explosions; that's like trying to mitigate 50lbs of C4 going off with just your body.>jam all communicationsThe signal doesn't have to come by radio. It could be magical, or even something as simple as a flare. No guarantee of success, and unlikely since it's an obvious first response.Attempting to exfiltrate will only result in the principal dying partway to the exit rather than on stage.
>>27398159Personally, I think the whole team is wiped, Enishi is probably the only one left alive, and they're going to try and turn her because a Calli is far more useful than a vindi. Vindis are just glorified turrets, calidus are dangerous.I think if we find Ayumu, we'll find NECO also chained, cuffed, and Ball gagged as well.That said, I think we should go out on the field, this bitch may claim to be ready for us. But if Wendy is any smart, and still wants a shot at us, alive or dead. She would have to intervene before lucius sic's her Majideen on us. Either she'll rescue us, kill the bombers then fight us herself, dash in and burst into tears while holding our hands, or take us with her in a similar ploy.I still say go for it, Lucy may have an advantage on us, but we have an advantage on her. BE AS FUCKING UNCOUTH AS POSSIBLE, drive her up the walls so hard she makes a mistake, you all read her reaction to the phone call. We might be able to goad her into walking into her own trap.
>>27397915[X] "It's either me or this goddamn Stadium. Don't think for a second that I'll just waltz right into it."[X] Call up Kyuubey. The mutant cat deserves an explanation.[X] Check with Kyosuke to see if there are any secure frequencies in case of a mole.
>>27398275>Vindis are just glorified turretsYou, Sir, are insulting both Chiaki and Mami. Joking.In any case, getting her riled is a good idea. She's not as sophisticated as she thinks herself to be.I still think we should call the bastard cat somehow, maybe he can lend a paw or two.
>>27398205It's entirely possible they nabbed NECO to tap into our commnet. After all who is the only one obsessed with...well who was the ONLY one prior to Lucy that was obsessed with someone enough to want to stalk them and/or tap all their phones and other communications?If NECO is still alive after all this, I say beat the shit out of her for compromising us, then contract her. Let her have that wish of hers, I'd love to see a weekday afternoon MG soap opera.
>>27397915[x] Call her bluff.Bitch ain't gonna do shit.
The whole "protecting the prophet" line sounds like a lie. If this really is a girl who can see the future and is out for revenge, antagonizing Murderface like this is just making herself a bigger target. I'm guessing the prophet gave Lucius a part of her plan and now she's acting on her own initiative and "for the sake of the prophet". Looking at it from the point of view of a fanatic: "if I succeed ahead of schedule, I will be exalted!" That's the vibe I got from her speech, at least.
>>27398275>Vindis are just glorified turretsbitch please
>>27398317As much as I'd love to beat the shit out of NECO, Sayaka's hate-boner for us would only grow harder.>>27398336She's either a rogue or a Red Herring the Prophet sent after us. Just saying.
>>27398247Yeah, but in that case there's no clues as to why this bitch hates Chiaki so much.
>>27398336I'm beginning to have my doubts as to the validity of that "Lucius the Eternal" title, no one that stupid could possibly last that long. I suppose if Oriko was planning on recruiting Lucy for just this moment, then it's reasonable, but I do believe Chiaki is guaranteed to survive this moment, not without doing anything of course, but we're destined for a meeting with the chosen bitch-witch-one-whatever.I'm voting for this >>27398275Walk out, cussing, spitting, taking a piss standing up, draw lucy out in a fit of seething rage so red she can't tell it from her own blood.
I bet Lucius is just a cunt that's somehow related to the squads of Eversors that Girl A killed.
>>27398366Fanatic mindset. Glorious leader hates her so I hate her too.
>>27398349So we do the worst thing we can do.We sit NECO down on Chiaki's lap.And apply headpats/strokes.The effect will be like being touched by a very very dangerous viper or a ysanne isard.
>>27398341>Vinds are just glorified turrets>bitch please>Posts moving picture of Mami standing in place shooting and hitting stuff approaching her.
>>27398268-I was actually thinking of timestopping the way out, but then I realised that's just going to get the principal pinkified.
For those unfamiliar with the Madoka sidestory materials, I suggest you head over to wiki.puella-magi.net and look up Oriko Magica, and read the descriptions of each chapters. Spoilers, obviously, but probably critical to our understanding of the meta.Oriko wants to kill Madoka to prevent her from becoming Kriemhild Gretchen. Which is hilarious in this timeline for obvious reasons.
NECO ALART.NECO ALART.NECO @MGsAreReal 2mhttp://pastebin.com/WGDwxpzF They're kind of wasting the talent they have here, though... = 3 = well, i like Ruri-Ruri-sama, so i don't mind. NECO @MGsAreReal 2mhttp://pastebin.com/mG4E0AkV 2020 is making a big deal out of this, but it's not like they're the only studio involved. NECO @MGsAreReal 3mhttp://pastebin.com/J3CTEPvx ...well, it wasn't the warmaster after all, but it's still pretty juicy.
>>27398336It feels like the two are somewhat unrelated. If this really was about protecting/helping the prophet then they would go for plans that at least had a chance of killing Chiaki, while simultaneously not being traceable. But their three plans so far amounts to: piss off Chiaki for no gain with fake Mami heads, piss off Chiaki for little gain by killing Ruri and making her look incompetent (abandoned), and possibly kill off Chiaki...but implicating the prophet in the process. Those aren't the plans of someone for whom the prophet's well-being is their top priority. More like those of someone with a bone to pick, who happens to be allied with or serving the prophet to further that goal.
>>27398402I was talking about the glorified bit, not the turret bit.Vindicares are GLORIOUS turrets
>>27397915[x]Stop time[x]Kill everyone in the AudienceIts as simple as that. We can mark it as some sort of terror act. She is working for the person who wants to kill by thinking that she can hold the audience or another Meguca as a weakness against us. So we just have to show her how wrong she is.What is the death of several thousands people if ist for Mami`s safety? Absolutely nothing.
>>27398420>http://pastebin.com/mG4E0AkV>#1 Moon IdolDecu bias?
>>27398349No, if that is the reason for the breach of our comms and as yet still possible TMF, NECO is going to learn what violence is, it's a great teacher. After she is FORCED to contract FOR US, we can teach her further. Sayaka will hate us for it, but as I said, if NECO is the reason for us, and I'm looking back at the previous thread where she said that she would "make sure she stays out of trouble" add Sayaka too the fucking list too, Sayaka can teach NECO how to regenerate kneecaps and we can teach Sayaka what it means to forget your duties to play Idol on stage instead of doing her fucking job.
>>27398400Someone else knows who the fuck Ysanne Isard is? Holy shit
>>27398419She may want to un-fuck whatever Chiaki screwed up in this timeline. >>27398396Goddamn if that wouldn't be a surprise, Chiaki doesn't even remember it personally.>>27398453Which is why we're chewing out our Equerry as well. Contracting NECO seems a little too extreme, if only because Kyuubey seems to ascribe to the Philosophy of actually taking care of his Megucas somewhat as opposed to his dickish (by comparison) canon self
>>27398449She might not be in the audience.
>>27397915I like this answer.[x]>>27398449
>>27398492No, but Girls she plans on detonating her Soulgems are. After we dealt with that we can just go to the meeting place and kill Lucy.
>>27398476This is /tg/. Backstory/lore repository of everything.Of course we know who the Madam Director is.
>>27398453>reason for the breach of our commsHow is Lucius nabbing Ayumu when she was out of position on our orders, and then taking her comm-earpiece and using it to talk with us, NECO's fault?In fact, since NECO is still in the crowd, and during the entire concert has not Chirped anything that a person at the concert itself (such as Lucius and her group) would not see for themselves, just as hundreds of other fans have likely done, why are we even talking about NECO at all?
>>27398477>Goddamn if that wouldn't be a surprise, Chiaki doesn't even remember it personally.It especially makes sense what with how prissy and uptight that entire officio was
>>27398477>She may want to un-fuck whatever Chiaki screwed up in this timeline.By killing Chiaki? That will just make everything worse.I think we can actually talk Lucius down. She seemed surprised that we knew of the Prophet before we met; it is entirely likely that the Prophet herself does not know the Blessed Lady's secret.SHE'S A WITCH! A WITCH!
>>27398524Some seem to think that NECO is the theoretical mole that I was asking about. I have no solid grounding as to whether or not there is a mole, only running on my own Shadowruns.>>27398527Maybe. I'm just wondering where she got the kamikaze Magical Girls though.
>>27398565NECO WAS the mole.
>>27398565>Maybe. I'm just wondering where she got the kamikaze Magical Girls though.Taking a bunch of retiring missions and then faking completion and taking the targets off for brainwashing?

>>27398595Probably something like A Wonderful Life. No one has any memory of her and the world shifts so that it's as if she had never existed, but she is still alive and has full memory of her life.

Do we have a way to detect magical girls? Grabbing all of them would probably be a better choice than KILL EVERYONE.
>>27398562Does she know that? We're not even completely sure if it's Oriko yet. I'm just wildly speculating as is.>>27398577Well, NECO just tweeted 11 minutes ago.>>27398581Refer to this: >>27398613Also, she doesn't seem as capable as she'd like to think she is. That, or she's just that piss-raving mad at us.

>>27397982 >>27397935 >>27398009 >>27398015You continue walking, pushing past a gaggle of extras doing their level best to pull off their ridiculous costumes to pull on even gaudier ones. Of course you're know it's a goddamn trap, Lucius practically admitted as such. But the alternative is letting a bunch of civilians get killed - and you're not going to let your first mission as Warmaster end up with that kind of collateral damage. Besides, what would Mami say?"...Ngh. Well, at least your heart's in the right place for once," Sayaka grumbles. "Anyway, we should probably come up with something and fast - not much time left before her favorite song." A moment. "For someone completely fucking insane, though, she's got taste."What's that song about, anyway? Waltz of the Spider Lilies?"Slow song, with bits of uptempo here and there. Kind of like a Nocturne. Someone mourning about how their Magical Girl girlfriend didn't come back one night."Apt. ...Wait, is it still safe to use this frequency? Lucius could still be listening--"I heard her sign off, Matsuda-sama," comes Enishi's breathless reply. "I've remotely disabled Ayumu's headset just in case, though. We should be secure enough to plan." A moment's silence. "M-Matsuda-sama, I apologize for this lapse of security, I should have been able to--"You shake your head, before cutting her off. No. No apologies right now. The mission comes first - any finger-pointing or blaming will have to wait until after the debriefing. Right now, you want everyone on the same page on what to do before your ten minutes are up."...Very well. I am at your disposal, Matsuda-sama. Please use me as you will." The contrite tone in Enishi's voice is quickly replaced by a grim, determined one. "My Warmaster's will be done.""Likewise." Sayaka replies, after a moment's hesitation. "They don't sound like they're going for Ruri, anyway."[1/2]
>>27398613>>27398647It may be possible that a magical girl may have developed a means to let girls break their contracts, or fake a witchout somehow and then obscure them. Alternately, maybe there's an Incubator that just doesn't care if some girls leave the Officio to do other things.
>>27398660"We're listening, Miss Matsuda." comes Kyosuke's grim reply. "Miss Kirishima's safety is paramount, but I'm sure she would want us to help protect her fans, too.""...Squad Hiryu reporting." A tearful voice comes on the frequency, but one with barely-kept rage. "Warmaster, Ayumu was one of ours, and we should've been watching her more carefully when she relocated. It's our fault, but we're not going to screw up again. Tell us what to do, and we'll do it. We'll get those bitches back for Ayumu-chan."...Well. Seems like everyone's more or less at your disposal, here. Good to know.What kind of plan do you come up with?Exfiltration. Have them be prepared to get Ruri out the moment something goes wrong. The casualties will be regrettable, but at least the client will be safe.Contigency. Have Enishi coordinate with Squad Hiryu and Kyosuke's men to check for any suspicious Magical Girls about to transform, and have them detain or kill on sight while you fight Lucius.Subterfuge. Have Enishi disguise Sayaka as you while you keep Ruri guard.Have them be on guard while you call Kyuubey and ask for Muramasa to be delivered to you.Other.
>>27398624>Do we have a way to detect magical girls?Yes, Enishi can detect them. But so far, we have not been shown to be able to do it.Also, Soul Gem self-destruct can still be done by the Soul Gem itself; the Magical Girl's mind and soul are in the Soul Gem, not the meat-body that they can just resleave into. Grabbing all the Soul Gems would just leave us holding ALL the bombs that can still detonate themselves as soon as they realize they're cut off from their bodies, which would be pretty easy for them to realize.

I'll admit that this is meta knowledge, but considering who we are dealing with (and the implied powers) and who Muramasa belonged to and her fondness of killing I don't think it would be such a stellar idea to use it in this situation.

>>27398769>Muramasa if we don't have Yuu on hand.We're wearing the Golden Bangles right now, so this shouldn't be a problem.
Whether the Soul Gem can detonate on its own or not is debatable. Kyouko physically manipulated her gem by kissing it to get it to detonate, and it fits in with the comments about body and soul being dependent on each other. The body dies without the Soul Gem and the Soul Gem dies and blinks out if separated from the body for too long. Fits with the treatment Midori was given as a prisoner. Her Soul Gem was attuned to her body a few times while she was in the silent room to keep either from dying.
>>27398677[x] Contingency.We should also call Kyubey and have him inform our own girls not to transform in the stadium to prevent friendly fire from them reacting to shit hitting the fan around them, however he'd manage that.

Or both?We're in a stadium, I'm assuming it's the same stadium as before, it wouldn't do to be standing there like a badass in the middle of a moshpit though, not that we would be moshed, rather the other way around. Perhaps if we could tell the stage boss that a super secret surprise is coming out to the field and the people need to back off for it? We're just lacking in detail on a lot of things here.I would also like Chiaki to try her whisper trick when we're walking outside, see if she can whisper to Wendy's soulgem after we get off the phone with Qubes.
>>27398677[x]Other.[x]Have them be on guard while you call KyuubeyDo NOT use Muramasa; we haven't subdued Kirika's spirit yet, and using it now when we already have Yuu is just asking for us to start killing the audience.
>>27398839But you still have to take into account that the one instance of a Soul Gem detonating involved physically manipulating it to start the process.
>>27398869We're meeting her far away from the audience.
>>27398766>>27398771>>27398788Lets just make sure Osaka is safely tucked away in our shield before we do so.
>>27398878The one instance WE KNOW OF. We're not certain what the incubators have done to the soulgems or how they're programmed/made other than what they tell us, for all we know, maybe there is a detonator.

>>27398848That unfortunately has only been demonstrated once with the desert eagle.Not once have we drawn another golden weapon so it might be more the GW we were assigned was drawn to chiaki
>>27398860The pulsing trick only works with Midori because of the Soul Gem link
>>27398887>far away from the audience.We're meeting her at the pitcher's mound, and the audience will be in the stands. Relatively speaking, that's not far, since we're still in the same stadium.
Why the hell do we want to use Muramasa? Gorefather and Gorechild are more brutal and less likely to drive us into a mad frenzy. We also have Yuu and the DEagle; we're good on gold.[X] Contingency[X] Other: notify Coobie of the meguca bombs. Ask if there's any way to disarm them outside of the obvious.
>>27398896We've never tried to draw any other weapon.We shouldn't be using the katana OR the chainaxes anyway; we're not familiar with them, we know FOR A FACT that using the katana will drive us into an uncontrollable blood rage, and have no idea what the axes will do.Meanwhile we have a perfectly serviceable gauntlets with built-in autocannons. We have no reason whatsoever to use anything else.

>>27398992Not if its the sword's bloodlust overtaking chiaki's.Also lets face it. Even if we used Yuu, Chiaki would take pleasure in smashing in Lucius' face so theres no getting around that.
>>27398914can you provide a quote with that from a previous thread?Or could Decu confirm, I have no idea where it might be since I do not recall anyone saying that or it being mentioned. I'm envisioning something like the Live Aid concert at Wembly, a writhing sea of humanity across the whole of the field right up to the stage.

>>27398961I like it.
>>27399036For maximum killy potential.Also for information gathering.If its who we suspect it is, lucius will have a very angry reaction to chiaki using the golden sword.
>>27399026Yeh, i think we need a refresher. I remember Ruri saying she wanted a whole stadium for this concert, but couldn't get one.
>>27399059Gold Gauntlets as shooty as well as punchy. I fail to see why it's less killy than BLOOD-FOR-BLOOD-GOD Katana.

>>27399026I distinctly recall Ruri saying she wanted to fill the whole thing and have audience seated on the field as well, but that they said no.

>>27399084We're not even sure if it's really Oriko. But I concede the point, if only because I need sleep.>>27399104How do you propose we use a Katana which leaves us begging for blood with any care who it spills from, only that it's spilled?

>>27399026>>27399071>>27399128Thread 129Post # 27104321>"I know, it's not that big of an audience, right?" Ruri frowns. "I wanted them to open the baseball field for seats, too, but they were having none of it." She pouts. "And you'd think being the only Super Idol in the world can get you anything, but noooo...'don't mess with baseball, young girl, just keep singing your autotuned songs'!"
>>27399036Because retards want us to go full murderretard for no good reason. PROTIP: DON'T GO FULL RETARD
If its Oriko lets give the gold katana to her.So she can fully appreciate how reports of a certain someones death were greatly exaggerated.
>>27399104They're idol-otaku.Who gives a fuck.
>>27399145Recall the last time we used it.Even after unleashing FOFA, we were able to direct Chiaki's fury despite the combat haze.Assuming no one goes near chiaki during the combat, we should end up with chiaki coming out of a stupor with her having chopped up lucius' corpse into a fine mince. That was what midori stopped her from doing after all.Whats more that was before the operation. Chiaki's control over it should be even better, now.
>>27399198I voted for using the Golden Gauntlets. We still have the goddamn thing on our wrists while both the Chainaxes and the Katana are locked up in the 9th.
>>27399213Ruri, Kyuubey (due to the former being his client), Mami and all the other run-of-the-mill garden variety Megucas.
>>27399141I don't think it's going to be that easy. I think we are going to have to brawl with her a bit, the sword is just going to fall from the sky like an air drop. Then we time stop to grab the thing. Beyond that, who knows.Unfortunately we have to put up a bit of a show here, we can't just gib someone in the middle of the concert. There is no way it would go over well.Plus that would require us getting the sword within the next 10 mins, and I don't think that is going to happen.When all is said and done, we turn to the crowd, curtsy, then timestop out. They would eat that shit right up. Provided we still maintain the capacity to walk after the fight.
>>27398677>[X]Have them be on guard while you call Kyuubey and ask for Muramasa to be delivered to you.

>>27399196Thank you, we need more of this in the future, people who do remember or can find where the stuff is, so I feel it is safe for us to step out, ideally, if Iori could step off stage as we're emerging, we could at least save one idol if push comes to shove.On the note of choice of weapons, lets use the bracelets for now, maybe once we're out on the field Yuu could detect Wendy much more clearly. But have the sword ready to go in our shield if need be.
>>27399217Yes, we sure did direct our fury well and didn't cut up Midori at all!Except we did. Ooops!
>>27399269I really doubt the sword is going to be here within the time limit. We will have to use the deagle or Yuu for the first part of the fight.
>>27399285She liked it, I'm sure everyone else will too!
>>27399229I understand this sentiment, I myself have voted for going out on the field, I think we should start with the gauntlets if it devolves into fighting, for detecting Wendy, and not going on a full on Murderface brand Murderspree. If things get serious, then bust out the sword, sayaka will probably "dis-arm" us before we start guinsooing the crowd. well, try to.But we need to be clear to the world that this isn't setting a precedent, the Warmaster of the 9th does not negotiate with terrorists, Kidnapping and holding people hostage is not going to get them anything except a swift death.We need to go Kenyan on these bitches, hard fast response, with an acceptable margin of casualties to show we have a hard line.
>>27399323Do you have any idea the level of special FX the ticket prices will purchase, the crowd is going to be in awe.
>>27399285She did try to get in the way in the end, trying to get chiaki to stop chopping up bear corpses.Also note disclaimer saying 'assuming no one gets in chiaki's way'. Because I really dont think anyone not emotionally invested in chiaki is going to step in.And note as well that that that occured pre-op. This is now post-op and after the training session with kharn and it is no longer the first time activating FOFA.
>>27399348You know, Sayaka might just have her sword here? you think she's got it near the stage? The one with the trigger? It might be a Masamune, but it could suffice in a pinch.
>>27399323Exactly, the last time we shot someone in the knee they fell in love with us. Chiaki must be really good at it. Does it all sweet like.>>27399331>If things get serious, then bust out the sword, sayaka will probably "dis-arm" us before we start guinsooing the crowd. well, try to.It is exactly what she is getting payed for. We do crazy shit, she rips our arms off when we go overboard.And as long as we win the fight, I don't think it really matters what kind of precedent we set. Winning is winning.
>>27398961 >>27398726 >>27398729 >>27398774 >>27398818 It takes you only a few moments to decide. You tell them to prepare for a contingency. Whoever this Lucius is, you can't trust her to keep her word. Squad Hiryu is to stand down UNTIL you engage Lucius - and when that happens, they along with Enishi coordinates with Kyosuke's squad to check for any suspicious activity. Said suspicious activity, of course, involves any Magical Girls about to transform, or detonate their Soul Gems. If they do find anyone, then either detain or put them down immediately, with as little involvement from the audience as possible. Sayaka stays with the client as always, and to be ready to physically haul her out of the stadium in the worst case scenario."...You're really going for it, huh?" Sayaka's voice still has that edge where it sounds like she's sneering when she's talking - but there's a faint hint of respect in it. "Well, I still think it's stupid for you to just walk right into this kind of trap, Murderface, but you seem to have things figured out.""I do not mean to draw comparisons at such an inopportune time, Matsuda-sama, but..." Enishi's voice, on the other hand, has adoration writ clear in it. "...This is the opposite of what Miss Valnikov would have suggested. Of course, Miss Malal, Blessed Lady keep her soul always, would have straightened it out to match your plan, but...that in itself..." She lets out a sigh. "...I will not let you down, Warmaster.""Neither will Squad Hiryu." Comes the chorus of voices that constitute the remains of your Vindicare overwatch squad. The way they sound is painfully familiar - anger barbed with shame and tempered with revenge. [1/2]
>>27399348>anyone not emotionally invested in Chiakiwelp
>>27399390"Orders received and understood, Miss Matsuda." Kyosuke chimes in last. "I'll have my squad spread out and prepare for a quick takedown response. This is our specialty, at least."Right. That's good. You leave them to it - you have less than five minutes left before the song starts - and you quickly call Kyuubey on your smartphone. The mutant cat should know, at least. He picks up on the second ring."Matsuda?" Kyuubey seems surprised. "Well, this is a wonder. I don't think we've communicated this much in one single day. What can I do for you?"On both your wrists, the golden bangles you wear underneath your sleeves give a pleasantly-warm pulse, as if politely reminding you of their presence.How do you explain the situation to Kyuubey?
>>27399407We at least need to show off the golden katana.If assuming the prophet is oriko, hlthe story of chiaki killing her and claiming her sword would have made the rounds among her followers and they would have an adverse reaction to seeing it.
>>27399407"One of Prophet's lackies is here, she putted magical girl suicide bombers in the crowd and they will all destroy their soul gems unless he fights me 1 on 1 in the baseball court."
>>27399407"Someone from Prophet has a vindicare and is going to order magical girls in place within the stadium to destroy their soul gems unless I face her. I'm taking Muramasa, don't interfere."close phone, let's show her our Murderface.
>>27399407[X] I have an unknown number of rogue magical girls threatening to detonate their Soul Gems in the audience. I'm engaging the leader to buy time while my squad intercepts. Relay any useful information, distinctive signatures or mannerisms, to Enishi and Squad Hiryuu. Out. "
>>27399407Tell him the same lunatics that keep threatening Mami have planted suicide gem-bombers in the stadium, and ask if he has any advice for dealing with the potential for exploding gems.
>>27399449>"Someone from Prophet has a vindicare and is going to order magical girls in place within the stadium to destroy their soul gems unless I face herYes.>I'm taking Muramasa, don't interfere."FUCK NO
>>27399407[X] "We lost Ayumu's gem to a squad of magical girls unrelated to any officio, they act in the name of the prophet and have threatened to detonate their soul gems if I don't walk in to this trap, which I am about to walk in to.""I'm going to get that gem back."
>>27399407"Things just went full shittastic. I need Muramasa, fast. I'm going to /attempt/ to keep this from turning into the biggest bloodbath yet, but things are not looking good. I will provide full details when it's over."
>>27399407[x] Tell him that followers of the prophet have infiltrated the concert, and are plotting to blow their gems up to kill the audience. Ask if he knows any way to prevent the gems from exploding.Also, totally going to vote for banglefight.
>>27399407[x] "Shit is about to hit the fan. There's a group of hostile Magical Girls here, ready to detonate their Soul Gems just to give me bad PR. They say they're working for a 'Prophet', whoever the fuck that is. Their leader, calls herself 'Lucius', has taken credit for the head in the box, and the corpse we ran across on the way to the stadium. She's taken the Soul Gem of one of the Hiryu squad members hostage, and has graciously decided to use her Plan B and challenged me to a duel, in the baseball diamond, under lights. If I don't show in about 1 minute, she'll have her girls go up. Just thought I should give you a heads up before everybody here died."
>>27399407[x]"Boss, some rogue MG group is making a move, threatening to self-destruct their Soul Gems. I'll give you the full debrief later."Their leader's agreed to fight just me, one-on-one; it's a trap, but it'll give my team time to find the rogues and take them down. I hope you can handle any bad PR from this. Just letting you know in case of the worst."Don't ask for Muramasa.
>>27399407"Shits going south real fast. Multiple MGs are about to witch out in the stadium, can't evac anyone without them going off. I have to fight their leader in the middle of the stadium or they go off. They might go off anyway after I slice her in two. Speaking of bisection, I need the Muramasa delivered to the stadium asap.How do I turn a live killing of another magical girl in the middle of a concert full of muggles into good PR?"
>>27399407>[x] Renegade MG team present at the concert, their team leader demands a one on one in the middle of the field. The rest of the MGs are suicide bombers and are threatening to forcefully witch-out with everyone present. Squad Hiryu, Enishi and Kyosuke's squad will sweep the stadium during the fight looking for the MGs.
>>27399407"I have a situation here that is under MY control. However I need someone to head to my private armory to pull out the Masamune and have it delivered to the stadium in the next 4 minutes and 55 seconds. I may not need it, but it's better to have it and not need it, than need it and not have it.On another note, could you have Mami-san run an extensive search on a Lucius. Possibly a rogue MG, possibly affiliated with an officio but well hidden. I would advise working on a possible media blackout, I'm certain something can be explained on the broadcast as special FX but I fully intend to take this bitches head and use it as a hood ornament. One last thing before you have a heart attack, please send a quiet missive to the other warmasters that if they are responsible for this directly or indirectly and I find out. I will have a personal conference including them, myself, and 3 bullets.I do hope you enjoy the show, give my regards to Mami.
>>27399407[x] "One of that prophet has taken one of our own and planted magical girl suicide bombers in the audience. She's threatening to make them blow their soul gems up to kill the principal along with the entire audience. She demands to fight me, I'm going in but need anything you can give me on soul gem explosions, preferably a way to prevent it from happening or at least identifying it beforehand."
>>27399502>How do I turn a live killing of another magical girl in the middle of a concert full of muggles into good PR?Special effects?Make sure to quip something from Murder Mayumi after we win?
>>27399407[X] I have an unknown number of rogue magical girls threatening to detonate their Soul Gems in the audience unless I engage in a duel, and if there's an evacuation. I'm engaging the leader to buy time while my squad intercepts. Relay any useful information, distinctive signatures or mannerisms with regards to exploding soul gems, to Enishi and Squad Hiryuu. Would request that this information gets passed to any of our off-duty agents in the audience so they can help. Out. "
>>27399502This, sword and all.
>>27399515>pull out the MasamuneIt's Muramasa. Implication of being a cursed sword that fills its wielder with bloodlust.Masamune is associated with being a more discerning sword that let's the wielder defend those that need defending.
>>27399502I like it.Except the Muramasa bit. I can't possibly think of a scenario when using that when we have three other perfectly servicable golden weapons at our disposal would be a good idea. Even if it would psyche out the opposition, the fact that it's all but guaranteed to send us into full FoFA mode would seem to be a rather potent counterpoint.
>>27399502Everything but the sword sounds good here.
>>27399515This if for the fact that is covers all the other bases the others left out, namely someone starting an investigation into this Lucius, the possible media blackout, the open letter to the other officios that suggests they need to clean house before someone else does.>Under control>Asking for Murumasaone of these things is not like the other.
>>27399581Better to have it on standby if we need it than not at all
>>27399490No. Fuck off.
>>27399515This but replace the opening line with >>27399502Also, before we hang up mention, if you say something about not having a heart needed to have a heart attack in the first place, the first thing I'm doing when I get back to the office is cutting you open and checking for my own fucking sanity.
>>27399515why 3 bullets?
>>27399615Problem is, having it available means there's a chance wind up using it when we want something else. Like in Siberia.That sword something we really only want to use as a last resort, but as long as it's in our inventory there's no guarantee we'll be able to save it for last.
>>27399701Mozabique Drill. 2 in the chest, 1 in the face.
>>27399701Two kneecaps and a soul gem.
>>27399719Then have them not hand it over until we need it. Simple.>>27399701Knee knee head.
The best part about Muramasa is that it fucks over healing attempts. Remember how it took Kyoko's eye permanently? Imagine using it to lop off Lucius' limbs.
>>27399786they don't call it cursed for nothing.
>>27399786That was before she had Muramasa, FFS. It was explicitly stated that it was done without the golden sword.Why the fuck do people keep forgetting this?
>>27399786I thought Kyoko CHOSE to not heal her wound?
>>27399786I think Kyouko lost that eye before Kirika started using Muramasa constantly
>>27399824No, when she had QB try to heal the wound, it ended up only regenerating skin over her eye socket; the eyeball wouldn't regenerate despite QB's efforts.
>>27399824Nope. Tried, skin just grew over and the socket sealed up.No eye, just a blank patch of face.We're the only one who's seen it. Not even Sayaka knows.
WE DON'T NEED THE FUCKING SWORDGOD FUCKING DAMNIT WHY ARE YOU ALL SO RETARDED
>>27399843I wonder if she ever tried regenerating her whole head not just the eye.
>>27399874It's only a couple idiots.
>>27399879...now that's thinking!
>>27399867Wait, really? I doubt Sayaka doesn't know, considering the stuff they're doing in the bed.
>>27399881Thank fucking god.Seriously, we have fucking ARM CANNONS and Best Girl Strength. Why the fuck do we need a fucking sword? For fuck's sake.
>>27399824Absolutely not, it hasn't really hampered her ability so she hasn't done anything drastic like cutting off her head and growing a new one. Besides she looks good in an eyepatch, on that note, don't tell Sayaka, it's a secret because it's obviously an abnormal wound.>>27399874Stop whining about it, it's past voting time, either the pro-sword votes will get it, or they won't. You're adding nothing.>>27399900It's like her boots, they never come off.
>>27399903so we can wield sword whilst wearing gauntlets? Become like Samurai Jack in that one episode with the robots that his sword can't cut through, unless he uses the mechanical arm.Or magic samurai powers, but I don't think that's an option for us.
>>27399911I can see it now"Fuck...Murderface don't even talk to me, I have such a fucking headache.""Let me fix that for you Sallaka."*BAM*5 minutes later"Hey my headache's gone now, I also remember how I was going to tear your arms off at the elbows and fuck you in the ass with them!"
>>27399933...actually that's a good point. With Yuu as backup could we not go mad?
>>27399933>so we can wield sword whilst wearing gauntlets
>>27399979Nigga have you seen the size of those gauntlets?
>>27399966I'm not so sure I want to use two golden weps at the same time. unless they have similar personality's. They might not play nice. And only with the more placid ones like Yuu, I wouldn't want to use the sword with another batshit insane weapon.
>>27398420>*in bedI nearly spat water all over my monitor.
>>27399979Listen buddy if it worked for samurai jack it could work for Chiaki. Besides, wasn't there it said that mastering the golden weapons was important?
>>27400002thatthat's my pointit would be like trying to stab people with a toothpickit would give up the katana's one advantage (huge speed) just for 'hey man I heard you like golden weapons so I put a golden weapon in your golden weapon so you can [x] the flesh of fallen angels while you [x] the flesh of fallen angels' which is of course fucking retarded.
>>27400054Please see >>27400054>>27400076I know, I wanted to quote >>27399933 but I fucked up.
Couldn't we gaultlet-ify one arm and use that as a shield / cloberer and wield the katana in the other hand?
You guys are thinking small time.What we do is, we tie the katana to the chainaxes, and use THAT weapon in our gauntleted hands, all while firing the DEagle with our mouth.
>>27400123I swear, if one of the golden weapons is a hat-gun...
>>27400099Yes, my post is wonderful.Maybe the gauntlets can change sizes to something a bit more normal?
>>27400054> Besides, wasn't there it said that mastering the golden weapons was important?This is pretty much the only reason I endorse the idea of using it. One of the girls we will be fighting has quite a few of them, and getting good at using all of them.Plus we have Sayaka to help(read cut off our arm) when we start to lose it.
>>27400157it's not my fault!
>>27400200>Plus we have Sayaka to help(read cut off our arm) when we start to lose it.Fuck off.
>One of the golden weapons is going to be a South African rape-prevention female condomGuys, how are we supposed to fight magical girls with that? Trick them into fisting us?
>>27400148>-speed>-accuracynigga...wat? It's basic physics, put more force into something, and it moves faster. I assume the accuracy issue is linked to that.>-autocannonsI may be forgetting how they work, but I think they are just slung under the gauntlets, meaning we could easily use them while wielding the sword.>-sanityWe need to deal with Kirika at some point, because we need every advantage we can get. Having Yuu around to bolster sanity would definitely help.
>>27400230>put golden anti-rape female condom on deagle>shoot enemy magical girl in crotch>watch as she goes full FoFA and starts reverse-raping Kyosuke
>>27400234The cannons are in the fingers I think. But we can just as well fire from one fist and swing with the other either way.
>>27400234>>-autocannons>I may be forgetting how they work, but I think they are just slung under the gauntlets, meaning we could easily use them while wielding the sword.If they're anything like canon STR, they're in the fingers.I'm not trying to argue one way or the other.
So, are we Dr. Peace or are we Travis Touchdown, here?
>>27400248It's not edgy, but it is stupid. >>27400268well, we still have one hand free for shootings of the guns
>>27400230Start by turning it inside out... you'll figure the rest.
I hope we pick up a golden barrett. We need more stupid oversized golden guns.
>>27400223It's what we chose her for. She is the foil to our crazy. One of the few at the office who probably could stop us if we go off the deep end. If we can't use her now, we can't use her.
Decu pls post
>>27400291>not NTW-20You require re-education, /k/ommando
>>27400314A golden anti-material rifle is a golden anti-material rifle.
>>27400291I want to know why we didn't get dual DEagles. Mami got dual flintlocks, Yuu got dual gauntlets, Kharn got dual chainaxes. The only golden weapon we've seen so far that isn't part of a set is the goddamn katana.Hell, one of the writeups has a chick with FOUR chainhooks. FOUR.inb4 'and that's terrible'
>>27400349I thought Mami only got the one, and promptly threw it away.
>>27400347Yeah, but the NTW-20 is 20mm/14.5mm as opposed to 12.7mm, thus making it EVEN MORE RIDICULOUS
>>27400349Obviously the katana and deagle were meant to be wielded together.
>>27400349"Gee lady, how come you get FOUR chainhooks?""AAAAAAAAAAAAAH BLESSED LADY!"
>>27400349And that's fucking awesome
>>27400364It's a golden fucking anti-material weapon. It doesn't matter what caliber it is. Anything that gets hit by it is going to get vaporized. Lets not get into a pissing contest over the pros and cons of regular guns. Golden weps are on a whole other level.
>>27400362she pulled out 1 golden rifle and threw it away.
>>27400362No, it was definitely two. I'm sure of it.I just can't be assed looking through the archive to prove it.
>>27400349Ahriman's staff was a single weapon and it is still unaccounted for.
>>27400364>Not wanting a golden this thing
>>27400426>please break my shoulder
>>27400423staves and katanas are basically impossible to dual-wield though (if it's a long staff at least). Admittedly that's true for chainaxes and flintlocks too but THAT'S NOT THE POINT. Rev up that timestop, someone's got some explaining to do.
>>27400426Not even trying.
>>27400407>>27400362She either got the same one twice, or she got two.She threw it away, and the second time she used it.
>>27400456Katana+Wakizashi set.Just sayin.
>>27400461Both are 30mm
>>27400409>20161365/#p20162964>You...you just drew a golden weapon. It's one of your rifles, the gilding is the same, the rifling is the same, even its weight...and yet it is pure gold, brilliant, almost luminous.Just the one.
>>27400409You are wrong though. So get proving.>>27400487She did not use it.
>>27400426Fuck it. Just grab a god damn MBT cannon and call it a day.
>>27400456"Hey, uh, Pinky? How come the others got more 2 weapons? Do you not love me?"GUILT HER INTO PROVIDING MORE OP WEAPONS
>>27400409>>27400497only the OP image shows Mami holding two golden rifles.
>>27400490B-but dual DEagles is so much more Chiaki...
>>27400519Nah, let's just pull out another Golden Desert Eagle
>Dual Golden AA12s
>>27400497Now scroll down to where we threw it away. We threw away TWO of them.
>>27400528And? There was only one. Artistic license. Decu is lazy.
>>27400494You're correct, both are 30mmand it's fully automatic to boot
>>27400494Well, if we want a 30mm gun...
>>27400557Then post a quote.
>>27400569Semiauto. Seras just pulls triggers really fucking fast.
>>27400569The harkonnen is not automatic. It's bolt-action.Backpack thing is auto, though.
>>27400557You are so full of shit.>That's right, you did. You took it by the rifle and tossed it as far as you could, away from you, horrified that you even contemplated using it. Even if you knew, somehow, that one shot from the golden weapon would end anything in its path - you know that nothing good would ever come from using it.
>>27400586I'm too lazy to look for quotes now, but Mami got one and tossed it away. Then manifested another one when Charlotte was about to eat her but was saved by Sayaka before shooting. Read it only yesterday.Personally I imagine she can pull out as many as she wants since her regular muskets are one shot only and the golden version looks and feels just the same.
>>27400508I just triggered my MAD SCIENCE! reaction.We need to experiment with our shield.First step is have Misaka program a combat AI for ground/air vehicles and possible ships.Then we have to check if our pocket universe is time stopped or not. For this we can throw something that rots fast, however it won't be 100% accurate because it might experience a stasis effect. I suggest we throw in a person or something, preferably a magical girl because even if she dies, she'll be able to tell us if it was instant or what.And then if the combat AI is successful and there is no stasis effect then we can make the tanks in our shield shoot from the pocket dimension.
>>27400634>I suggest we throw in a person or something, preferably a magical girl because even if she dies, she'll be able to tell us if it was instant or what.Better yet: the mutant cat!
>>27400631So full of shit.>There's no reason that they'd be gold, though. You...you've never had one turn out like that. Why are you worried?
>>27400634And if there -is- stasis, then we can exploit that, too.Throw lit bombs in there.No need to grab out grenades and pull the pin when you've got pre-pin-pulled grenades just waiting to be thrown.Catch a missile mid-flight and shove it in there.We can pull it out and point it during timestop and then light our cigarette with the pretty fireworks.
>>27400686YES! PERFECT! He has infinite lives and clones so it's no matter if he dies a horrible death. And we get Pinky points for it.
Pity Midori's not here, or we could make it a play.
>>27399445 >>27399459 >>27399461 >>27399488 >>27399502You give Kyuubey as complete and as concise of a rundown of what's happening - or at least, what's about to happen - as you make your way through backstage and out into the audience sections. You're almost pushed physically back by the combined noise of the cheering, raving crowd and the juddering speakers blasting out Ruri's synth-pop music - and you duck back into the soundproofed backstage as you finish your report. The mutant cat, to his credit, had stayed completely silent when you started, allowing you to talk uninterrupted. When he finally replies, he's all business, as usual. In fact, he even sounds even colder than before."I see. Well, it sounds like you've got the situation under control, Matsuda. I'll trigger a few contingencies to be on the safe side, although they seem unnecessary from what you're telling me." He makes a pleased noise, here. "Yes, I'm quite familiar with the Soul Gem Grenade tactic, but we've agreed that it's something to be frowned upon or taught. The collateral damage is usually not worth it, and cost-wise, it's a terrible way to blow up staff that you've invested heavily on training. Stopping the explosion itself..well, a well-trained Culexus could muffle the ensuing blast enough that all that happens is a spark, but not several all at once. And I doubt Omegon can handle something of that magnitude. She's not Malal." He pauses, here. "Have Karasawa spread her awareness throughout the entire stadium to pinpoint abnormal spikes of magical energy. There's a ten-second delay in every Soul Gem detonation - it requires that much time for the jewel to become overcharged and go critical. If the mundane security is spread out enough, Enishi will be able to detect the spike and direct the nearest to apprehend the Magical Girl. Killing them or rendering them unconscious should render the charge inert." [1/2]
>>27400769...Right. You pass that on, quick as you can, to your team. Making sure they understood."As for turning this into good PR...hm. I'd suggest posing dramatically while your defeated enemy explodes in the background, I think? I believe that's how it usually goes." Kyuubey sounds pleased with himself, here. "And yes, I'll have our staff run a search on this Lucius personality. I believe I've heard of her before, but I'm not that sure. We'll see what we can do." You glance at the giant digital clock on the stadium's scoreboard. One minute left to go. You break into a run, here, while still holding your phone up to your ear. With only a handful of seconds to go, you finally reach the dugout - a few more steps and you'll be on the field, making your way towards the pitcher's mound."Matsuda?" Kyuubey says your last name, here. You tell him you're still on the line - you're just making sure you're in place for your official 'debut'. You're about to kill someone in front of a billion or so people. It's...not something that happens every day."Ah, I see. Well. I was about to wish you good luck, but I hear that bodes ill for the recipient. Instead, I will just read a note that Mami passed me right this very moment." He clears his throat. "Do well, Chiaki-chan, and I'll treat you to dinner tomorrow night. Just the two of us. I don't care if you're still on assignment then - I'm sure Miss Kirishima wouldn't mind."...Right. Okay. You'll murder the fuck out of this Lucius."Good hunting, Matsuda."You end the call here, and shove the phone back into your inventory. You glance back at the stage - Ruri's saying something to the audience, in her cheerful way - and it's then that the music starts up. Slow, mournful. The Waltz of the Spider Lilies is beginning.[2/3]
>>27400733As much as I disagree with him, he may be correct about a second Golden Musket.Thread: http://archive.foolz.us/tg/thread/20161365Post # 20163544 >As you feel rather than see the monster's jaws start to close over your head, the motion curiously slow, almost meandering - the last words that leave your lips is a phrase. A short one, made up of five words. Nonsensical to everyone who might hear it, although they would probably remark how foreboding it is.>A crimson tinge coloring your vision as you feel the rough shape of a rifle handle press against your hand. Luxioriously warm, reassuringly solid. A golden shine filling your vision briefly.This is after the previous post where Mami threw the first Golden Musket away.
>>27400733That line happened before she got the golden ones though.
>>27400785>in b4 chikuwa
>>27400785I'm liking Coobie this mission.
>>27400785>dinner date with Mami>just the two of us>as many pancakes as we can eatLucius is fucking DEAD.Nothing will get in Chiaki's way.
>>27400823Right after the next choice is voted actually. Would be surprised if there was more.
>>27400788Probably the same anyway. There are no duo weapons.
>>27400785Taking those final steps, you enter the diamond - and you make a beeline for the pitcher's mound as the crowd roars at your sudden appearance. It's here, then, that you spot someone else taking to the field, from the opposite dugout. A Magical Girl, clearly transformed, with a shock of blonde hair and gleaming crimson eyes. Her costume, a short and rather frilly black affair, ruffles with her movements as she matches you step by step.And her sword, slung to her back, is...well. It looks like it could easily rival even the combined form of Gorechild and Gorefather in size. It's not so much as a sword as it is a large, flat plane of reinforced metal, with what looks to be the face of a dragon acid-etched into its surface. The effect is both impressive and disturbing - it looks as though the dragon's face is moving. But that's not possible, of course. Probably just a trick of the light.It'll be a few more steps before you actually meet at the pitcher's mound.How do you make your approach?Activate the bracelets and charge the fucker. She wants a fight, she'll get a fight. (RENEGADE)Stop a handful of feet before you meet. Try and talk things through, first. (PARAGON)Flesh of the Fallen Angels.
>>27400837He's actually been pretty cool the whole time. Just the residual hatred and trying to kill it business colouring things.There are far worse bosses to work for.
>>27400850>Flesh of the Fallen Angels.
>>27400850[x] Stop a handful of feet before you meet. Try and talk things through, first. (PARAGON)At the very least, we need intel.
>>27400850None of the above.Fight dirty, shoot her immediately, call in snipers, time stop, bombs, the fucking works.
>>27400850[x] Stop a handful of feet before you meet. Give a showy pre-fight speech like from the manga in order to stay in-character of Murder Mayumi. (PROFESSIONAL)
>>27400850>[x]Flesh of the Fallen Angels.Time to murder, Yuu.
>>27400850>Activate the bracelets and charge the fucker. She wants a fight, she'll get a fight. (RENEGADE)For that date with Mami.
>>27400850>Stop a handful of feet before you meet. Try and talk things through, first. (PARAGON)
>>27400850>[x] Timestop, blow off her arms and legs.
>>27400854He's a smug asshole who withholds mission-critical information just to fuck with us.
>>27400850What >>27400867 said. Winning this fight won't necessarily mean Mami is safe, and if this girl's connected to the Prophet we should milk her for all we can.
[x]Stop a handful of feet before you meet. Try and talk things through, first. (PARAGON)[x]Normally, I'd have taken a cheap shot at you before getting into a real fight, but I'm curious as to what you're going to rant at me about before I kill you. You are going to rant insanely, right?"[x]Cigarette is appropriate
>>27400850[x]Renegade. Start screaming "FUUUUUUUUUUUUUCK" and when you connect, "YOOOOOUUUUUUU"Bitch will probably start talking, and that'll make this really funny.
>>27400850[X]Activate the bracelets and charge the fucker. She wants a fight, she'll get a fight. (RENEGADE)I really wanna do fallen angels, but too many people around.
>>27400880>For that date with Mami.The date with Mami is only if we do well!Which means we have to do as Mami would do. So probably Paragon.
>>27400850Eh why the fuck not, might as well try to learn their motivations.>[x]Stop a handful of feet before you meet. Try and talk things through, first. (PARAGON)
>>27400850THE FLESH OF FALLEN ANGELS
>>27400850[x] Blood for the Blood God
>>27400875We should say this out loud.Make it sound like we're talking to Lucius, but share an inner grin with Yuu at the pun with her name.
>>27400850[x] Paragon "Well, I'm here as you asked. Now give me back my subprdinates soul gem before we start killing each other."
>>27400850>[x]Stop a handful of feet before you meet. Try and talk things through, first. (PARAGON)We need some intel, and she seems the type to like talking.
>>27400850>Activate the bracelets and charge the fucker. She wants a fight, she'll get a fight. (RENEGADE)
>>27400897If we save the people by turning this person into fine red paste, I believe we did good.
>>27400850>[X] FOFAMami promised us dinner after this, there is no way we're going to miss that by risking going to easy on an unknown quantity.Start out at a slight jog, then a trot then a dead sprint as the gauntlets coalesce. We're on the center stage as it were, may as well put on a show. Just try not to think about how Mami is watching, we don't need to embarass ourselves.Also, listen for Yuu pinging the presence of Wendy if it's getting stronger. Just in case.
Guys who are voting RENEGADE: we haven't gotten Ayumu's Soul Gem back yet!That counts against our mission completion rank, and getting that date with Mami.
>>27400850[X] Renegade. The song is starting! We have to match the beat!
>>27400912Well, technically speaking, we're usually talking in Japanese and it's just presented here in English as translation convention.But given the Japanese penchant for sprinkling English in to various places, it wouldn't be out of place to drop that one-liner in English anyway.
>>27400850PARAGONAnd seriously guys, can we at least TRY to fucking talk before going all FLESH OF FALLEN ANGELS?
>>27400850>Timestop>Activate bracelets>Smash Lucius like a fly>Autocannon the shit out of whatever's left
>>27400850>Stop a handful of feet before you meet, but still activate the bracelets. Try and talk things through, first, while using the gloves to deflect her attacks.I wanted to Renegade, but getting information is just too useful.
>>27400894Reminds me of a certain barbarian tearing into a hypercunt feminist with the help of a woman who just wants a man attached to her dicks.
>>27400891Not recently he hasn't.At the very least not since we started acting civil and not like a demented catmurderer.
>>27400850[x]Stop a handful of feet before you meet, tell her to uphold her side of the agreement.
>>27400850>[x]Activate the bracelets and charge the fucker. She wants a fight, she'll get a fight. (RENEGADE)That a serious question?
>>27400850Activate the bracelets then stop a handful of feet before you meet. Try and talk things through, first. (PARAGON)"So is this hobby or a job?"
>>27400953No, because that defeats the purpose of the FLESH
>>27400945We can take it off her corpse. If she's at all smart, the moment we stop and start talking we're going to get shot in the head. Best to at least keep moving and get into the thick of it.
>>27400939So you want no information and to lose Ayumu's Soul Gem. So you're already jeopardizing getting Mami's approval.
>>27400850>[x]Activate the bracelets and charge the fucker. She wants a fight, she'll get a fight. (RENEGADE)Seems silly to pretend she'll listen to us, with all the religious fervor she's already demonstrated.
>>27400953I prefer RENEGADE over PARAGON, but I'll take anything over FoFA.
So does anybody else think Oriko is the Prophet? Because the Prophet's serious grudge against Chiaki seems to indicate this. (We did kill Kirika, after all.)
>>27400949Sadly it is a slow song, BUT it has parts where it's faster so we can wreck her shit then. Let her enjoy the last last time she'll hear her favorite song I guess.
>>27400850Changing >>27400895 to [X](PARAGON), intel guy had a good point.
>>27400984How does any of that jeopardize Mami's approval?Provide quoted and supported reasons with thread citations where it indicates killing this bitch with all due prejudice will jeopardize dinner with her tomorrow night.
>>27400982>We can take it off her corpseThat's if we don't accidentally break the gem because we don't know where Lucius has it on her body.
>>27400850[X] Paragon. "Might as well put on a show."[X] While she's talking, status check. Get a sniper into position.If we know of any Murder Mayumi catchphrases, we should use them.
>>27401013Not to mention talking to her will hopefully distract her from our Soul Gem suicide bomber countermeasures.
>>27400850Kill the bitch outright.
>>27401020Is it visible on head? No? Crush head. Raaaah!
>>27400850[x]"Your biggest mistake was thinking that I am the same as Kharn."[x]Pull out a MIG.Well, she expects a fair fight. We dont fight fair.
>>27401028"Hold on miss, before we start, I need to speak to an associate""Hey, Midori, what are some of MM's most used catchphrases?"
>>27401017Maybe not dinner, but overall reputation. We'll lose Ayumu when we could've saved her.Why I'm saying we'll lose her? Well I doubt she'll just hand over the soulgem. Unless it is in possession of us or our allies then it will probably be destroyed if we wreck this bitch bad.
>>27400850>>27400875 hereChanging vote to this: >>27401050Hahaha. That's awesome.>[x]"Your biggest mistake was thinking that I am the same as Kharn.">[x]Pull out a MIG.
>>27400953No, who the fuck do you think this is? Chiaki is not a diplomat, her title is WARMASTER OF THE NINTH.Her old monkier used to be Murderface, to quote an anon from another thread, "she has left a river of blood so deep it's one of the signs of the apocalypse. What's one more drop in that?">>27400850>[X]FOFATime to show this prophet who is not to be trifled with.
For all we know Ayumu is already dead </Kenshiro> or she will shatter it when we stop to talk or well get snipped. Better to not give her the chance to relay any new orders. It's dangerous that Ayumu 's gem might get shattered in the fight if it's still intact, yes, but I honestly think this is the best choice.
>>27401050Oh god yes.We could even ram the thing into her and then timestop just as it's about to impact the ground and get out.
>>27401017>http://archive.foolz.us/tg/thread/20161365/#q20161365>During the course of said career, however, you've gotten yourself into certain situations that may in fact rely on a fourth key area: a singular force of will that your superiors had told you time and again was your best asset, tempered with the kindest soul imaginable. A cold, sharp mind of what needed to be done, sheathed with an almost heroic moral code that you stubbornly held fast to.>http://archive.foolz.us/tg/thread/20161365/#q20161596>You saw someone that needed saving. Someone that needed protecting. And you, Mami Tomoe, would not let that Magical Girl remain here for a moment longer. If she is well and truly dead, then at the very least, you can give her a decent burial. If she was still alive, then you can finally sleep a bit easier at night, knowing that some good comes out of being a Magical Girl. As has been shown, Mami analyzes a situation and adheres to a moral code. She would attempt to secure her subordinate's Soul Gem before initiating combat.Also, as noted that she keeps a core of cold logic to her actions, she would attempt to get as much intel from the leader of this rogue MG assault group before terminating the target.
For everybody who wants to go Renegade/FoFA, think of the theatrics of letting the evil meguca monologue for a bit, trading banter, then FoFAing her fucking face off at the height of her fervor.We're mercing this bitch regardless, might as well make it look nice.
>>27401089Have you not realized that ever since Siberia we've been trying our hardest to NOT be Kharn 2.0?
>>27401017I'm pretty sure going full FOFA will fuck more things up then solve (Especially in a crowded stadium). I thought we were trying to avoid getting corrupted by the golden weapons like Kilgore, Kirikas and us in Siberia.
>>27401143People will always go for the derp option.>Get fucked.
Alright! That's it for tonight's thread. Next thread this Thursday night! Thank you for everyone's participation, and feedback is always appreciated!Sorry for the delays again, still getting used to the Mac! Most voted action will be the opening action for the next thread!I don't think there's a writeup right now, so questions answered before I go to bed!
>>27401117We're not using the Muramasa. What more do you want, ever second we parley, entreat, and talk is a moment for things to turn the table, we're at the disadvantage here. We need to take the iniative.Why the fuck do you think wizard's are op? Because they go first. We're just a wizard who casts Fist with a rather large material component. Actually, we're an undead wizard. And besides, cutting this chick off before she has a chance to say anything might piss her off to the point where she starts making mistakes in her anger.
What if we like...You know.... Grab a ballistic shield from hammerspace? The Anti-rifle variant.
>>27401161Thanks for running!Where's the second DEagle Decu?!
>>27401161thanks for the thread!http://suptg.thisisnotatrueending.com/archive.html?tags=Magical%20Girl%20Noir%20QuestArchive is up, goodnight gentlemen.
>>27401161Is Lucius secretly after our hat?
>>27401161Enishi is on my list of characters to draw St some point: Is the kimono her civilian outfit or is that her costume?
>>27401161WHAT A SURPRISE!!!!
>>27401161Decu, what is the difference between FOFA and RENEGADE mode.Also, thanks for running.
>>27400850[x]RENEGADE. CHOO CHOO MOTHERFUCKER.
>>27401170The opportunity to get more intel on the Prophet and her organization? Lucius is literally our only link to her at moment, and she seems hammy and crazy enough to accidentally give away something important if we can get her to ramble.
>>27401161Remember way back when you offered us the choice of whacking Kirika or doing the Yakuza mission? It may be a bit early to ask, but what would have happened if we had chosen the Yakuza mission? Would Kirika have survived? Would we still have to face this Prophet?
>>27401050And do what with it? Throw it at her?Actually yes, I like that idea.
>>27401205The thread lasting this long really is a surprise.This is about two hours past the usual stopping time, same as on Sunday.
>>27401208Renegade just means we're a bitch.FoFA means we go into BERSERKER MODE
>>27401224UNLIMITED PLANE WORKS
>>27401161Paragade or Renegon?
>>27401170You're thinking about the battle.We're thinking about the war.The longer-term objective here is keeping Mami safe. This fight isn't against the Prophet, just one of her cronies, and winning here presumably isn't going to stop the Prophet from coming after us and Mami. "Shoot first, ask questions later" only works when you don't have any vitally important questions that the person your shooting could answer.
>>27401170But that's wrong. Wizards are stupid good because they have a game changing trick for every situation.We need to know the situation and pull out our best trump for it, whether it be Yuu, timestop, the DEagle, or former fatty Kaguya.
>>27401213So we take her alive if possible, or one of her subordinates. I trust Enishi could take one of em alive.Just gotta be careful, she might still have Osaka on her, need to avoid crushing her.
>>27401161What are all the coobies like and where are the Officios located?You never answered this question.
>>27401183There isn't one! Dual wielding desert eagles is silly!>>27401195I wouldn't say so!>>27401204She wears kimonos a whole lot! You can say it works double duty.>>27401208Flesh of Fallen Angels is when Chiaki fights with Yuu's strength and skill adding to her repertoire. Renegade is where Chiaki punches things with her own skill.>>27401220It was Kyoko's death flag!
All we need to do to keep her alive is, strictly speaking, keep her soul gem and most of her body.We can question her when she's safely locked in a Silent Room and probably doesn't have a backup plan.
>>27401235I know I'm just poking fun dear.
>>27401284>Kyoko's death flagHoly shit we dodged the biggest bullet
>>27401241By my count, 14 for Paragon, 7 for Renegade, 5 for FoFA.MiG's got 4 votes, it looks like.
>>27401251I'm starting to think Mami isn't in any real danger. They were just acts to goad us into action. Not that that will stop Chiaki from keeping the security detail until the prophet is good and dead.
>>27401284>There isn't one! Dual wielding desert eagles is silly!Silly is good! Viva silly!>It was Kyoko's death flag!>sweatwipe.jpg
>>27401284>Flesh of Fallen Angels is when Chiaki fights with Yuu's strength and skill adding to her repertoire.We need to do this in a fight..
>>27401284>Flesh of Fallen Angels is when Chiaki fights with Yuu's strength and skill adding to her repertoire. Renegade is where Chiaki punches things with her own skill.Well in that case, I change from Paragon to FoFA
>>27401284Man, with how much Sayaka hates us already, I shudder to think how she would've taken Kyouko being killed.
>>27401284Kyouko dying before we got to see the Christmas special would have been terrible.
>>27401327Preferably against something that warrants such overkill. Not against a mook in the middle of a crowded stadium with our principal a stone's throw away.
>>27401251>>27401253Look, this chick is clever enough to set up a hostage situation right under a highly trained and elite skilled team of vindicares and callidus. Then she goes so far as to take one of those same vindicares, and draw us out. She is clever, saavy, and likely highly skilled in techniques we are unaware of, we either need to end this battle in the first swing, or stay back and assess the target. If she has been paying attention lately, she'll know Chiaki has been trying to be more like Mami, analytical, moralistic, and nice. She might not be expecting a direct approach especially from a trained vindicare. She could be prepared for it, but she can't be prepared for a FOFA response, especially if she doesn't have a golden weapon.I'm being heavily outvoted here by nice people, which is fine, I've voiced my opinion, others have voiced theirs, and they're in the majority.I doubt I'll get an opportunity to say I told you so. But I do hope it comes.
>>27401342Uh.. It probably meant that Kyoko would've been sent to retire Kirika instead. And gotten herself killed.How is that our fault?
>>27401308Damn right we did. Almost lost best bro.
>>27401343We still would have gotten to see the christmas special. It would just be extremely heartbreaking.
>>27401284Makes me think we should give FotFA a go. I say we go balls to the wall with it after a short warm up. Maybe get some back and forth going on in the fight. Specifically I want Chiaki to ask if the whole Mami thing was just a stunt to ruffle her feathers.
>>27401349>mook>wants us to melee someone with a fuckhueg sword on our own powerYou want to kill us?
>>27401362This is Sayaka we're talking about. She'll find some roundabout rationalization for it.
>>27401279I can't reveal all of them all at once, but I do have some notes I suppose!The First - The best. The brightest. The Ultramarines of the setting. They only induct Warmasters and Magical Girls of note. Location: The Moon.The Second - The Holy Inquisition of the setting. Witch Hunters and seekers of Magical Girls turned rogue. Abhors heresy. Has a division called the Black Templars. Location: In a castle in Britain.The Third: Dissolved. Incubator Status Unknown. Folded into the Ninth. Last known location: Japan.The Sixth: Monster Hunters. The Warmaster is rumored to be a monster herself. Location: Australia.The Seventh: The Peacekeepers. An Officio centered around peace and spirituality. The Incubator contracts Magical Girls seemingly at random, and gladly provides refuge for Magical Girls who want to escape from their Officio. Location: Unknown.The Eighth: The Assassins. A very powerful Officio powered with the funding and technology of the most powerful nation in the world, America. The Incubator is a strange one. Location: Santa Destroy, California.The Ninth: The Murderers. Equal to the Eighth in power, funding and technology through its shrewd Incubator, this Officio in Japan always gets the most lucrative of assignments, along with the Eighth. It also owns quite a lot of business ventures all over the world, and a mysterious R&D facility in Siberia.The Tenth: The Thugs. An Officio that had taken to underground dealings to expand its power. Hires out its Magical Girls to criminal organizations.The Fourteenth: The Soldiers of Faith. An Officio installed in the Vatican. Its Warmaster is a hedonist. Allied to the Second. Location: The Holy See.The Seventeenth: The Canadians. Rumored to be in turmoil. (See Archival's writeups). Location: Canada.The Twentieth: Rumored to be an organization made up completely of Callidus. Location and Incubator unknown.
>>27401224Homura`s Shield had the power to control the things the stored inside if you watched Meguca Magica. She used that to fight Walpurgisnacht and used that to control several Tanks and even a Battleship.Just one silly MIG should not be a problem.

>>27401353>I doubt I'll get an opportunity to say I told you so. But I do hope it comes.And we hope that we get our chance to tell you to fuck off because our plan worked.
>>27401353You're assuming we can't go FoFA on her after she spills. We need intel and she is incredibly full of herself.We also don't know how itchy her suicide bomber trigger finger is or if she's expecting Murderface to act like Kharn 2.0 or Mami. There are too many unknowns to act smug about a given course of action.
>>27401387I think Homu had a powerful TK in the show. 's how she engaged timestop at will and controlled her toys.
>>27401375We can still go FoFA AFTER we get Ayumu's Soul Gem back and some questions answered, while Lucius is monologuing.The important thing is to attempt to get our subordinate back and some intel from the person who orchestrated this situation before we smash her face into paste.
>>27401385>The CanadiansMaybe someday they'll even be releva- Ahahaha nope, I can't even say it with a straight face.
>>27401441Agreed. Also, ask if the audience is safe if we win.
>>27401463Check again, we did. I suggest reloading the page.
>>27401463No need. We had plenty to talk about and posts were pretty fast this time around.
>>27401473What, gonna throw another Walpurgis at them once the current shitstorm calms down? That'd be hilarious, I admit.
>>27401385>The Second - The Holy Inquisition of the setting. Witch Hunters and seekers of Magical Girls turned rogue. Abhors heresy. Has a division called the Black Templars. Location: In a castle in Britain.For some reason, I have a feeling that they would just love Chiaki
>>27401385These sound generally interesting. For chance of seeing them, the second/fourteenth could become plot-related pretty easily (especially since they seem kind of a package-deal), eighth/seventeenth obviously extremely likely, tenth is already here, third is gone, and the first pretty much has to become plot-relevant eventually. Which leaves sixth, seventh and twentieth. Of course, 7 and 20 are both nicely set up to come out of left field, given their MOs. And who needs an excuse to go monster hunting?
>>27401284>Kyoko's death flag!DECU YOU CAN'T DO THINGS LIKE THAT!!!
>>27401353If she's so clever, then charging blindly in is just all the more stupid. It's easy to prepare contingencies for brute aggression, but it gets a lot trickier when your opponent takes some time to think. We're not exactly stupid ourselves, we know this is a trap, so it's not like we'd be a sitting duck if we took some time to try to get some intel. Plus, even if we have been making efforts lately to be more methodical, our reputation is very much one of violence and aggression. Our old nickname was "Murderface". Lucius is referring to us as "Murderer". To think that she'd have a plan in place to take us down when we stop to talk but not for if we go full-aggro at the earliest opportunity is just silly.Also, it's a pretty big assumption to think we can get this over with quickly with a single alpha strike. Charging in immediately is great if you're sure you can kill or incapacitate right away, but if that doesn't work you risk putting yourself at a much greater disadvantage than you would have if you'd taken some time to assess the situation. We do NOT have the upper hand here; we're responding to HER request to meet her for single combat at a place of HER choosing. Literary conventions aside (as if we could one-shot the boss, honestly now), it's unlikely that she would, if she is so clever, have called us out if she wasn't confident she could handle us.
GuysCan we call for the SPEHSS MUHREEN? Just have Misaka drop it in?
>>27401385>The Fourteenth: The Soldiers of Faith. An Officio installed in the Vatican. Its Warmaster is a hedonist. Allied to the Second. Location: The Holy See.Did the Kharn sidestory explicitly state that Nero was Warmaster of the Fourteenth? I don't remember.
When we punch Lucius' face in, we have to tell het Mami said knock you out
>>27401501That'd be silly!There's much worse I could do than that!
>>27401510Also don't forget we need to pay the Tenth a visit.And by visit I mean completely obliterating them.
>>27401510I'm interested in the 6th. Is the Warmaster a figurative monster ala Miss Marigold or a literal one? Sounds delicious.
>>27401538I think it was highly implied because we know Nero is based in Italy.
>>27401385>The Seventh: The Peacekeepers. An Officio centered around peace and spirituality. The Incubator contracts Magical Girls seemingly at random, and gladly provides refuge for Magical Girls who want to escape from their Officio. Location: Unknown.Why do i get the feeling these guys are going to turn out to be horribly sinister and evil in the end?
>>27401594The Seventh was Yuu's Officio, so that's probably a point in its favor.
>>27401594Because the Prophet is their Warmaster.
>>27401594Because they will be run by a MG version of this fucker.
>>27401622>Hating on glorious LalYou will vote for him and you will like it.
>>27401545I chuckled heartily at your play on words there. Good show.
>>27401440Yeah, but Chiaki doesn't seem to have it.She has to manually crank her shield to engage Timestop.
>>27401984Decu said we'd get our powers back in time, TK included. Is your body ready?
Additional notes: I hope Enshi's smart enough to light up the enemy MGs wjth illusion giant SHOOT ME arrows, as well as whoever's back at base to tell us who the fuck this person is if she's on file.
I wonder what's Wendy's role in this.
>>27402119...Oh god she's a cultist.
>>27402140Nah. I'm hoping she'll help us walk off our 'stage' once we've killed Lucius and gotten gored in return, our team should be too busy hunting for those rogues to help us.Meanwhile the show continues unopposed with the audience none the wiser about what just happened. Would be a great way to end this.
>>27402140From thread 89:"Prophet?" Wendy echoes after a moment, blinking. "...Hmm. Can't say I have. Heard about a High Priestess, but..." You see her eyes flick over to the shadows in the corner behind you, before she shrugs. "They're not the same, right? I mean, they're sort of similar, religion-wise, but they're not really that close when you consider it." It's then that her eyes narrow, and you feel a curious tension in the air. "What about this prophet, though? What'd you hear about it?"...You tell her. You're not sure why you told her, but hell, if you want to get anywhere with this line of inquiry - and make sure Mami stays safe - then you might as well go full disclosure, at least where this prophet was concerned."...It's not her, then." The brown-haired girl seems to sag with relief, a sigh drooping her shoulders. "She wouldn't do anything to hurt Miss Tomoe. None of us would. It's..." her expression crinkles in disgust, as if you'd just told her to join the bunny-eared girl in her noisy, sticky meal in the corner. "...it's one of those things that you can't force yourself to do, even if you've got a gun to your head, you know?"Well. You're glad she feels the same way as you do with Mami, then, despite the fact that this line of questioning just went dead once more.
>>27401050[X]THISWe have to kill fast and BULLETS TOO SLOW
>>27402185Aww shit. Wendy is one of the prophets cultists. Explains quite well why she's here.
>>27402336True, but Lucius did say that he wasn't acting on the prophet's orders.
>>27402407Where'd you get that from?
>>27402512Lucius did say that she wanted to rid the world of evil the Prophet was too pure for.
